1906-03-30 THE EXECUTION OF LIEUTENANT SCHMIDT

London Times, 30 March 1906, p. 10: RUSSIA./THE EXECUTION OF LIEUTENANT SCHMIDT. ODESSA, MARCH 29.

            Admiral Chukhnin yesterday ordered the bodies of Lieutenant Schmidt and the three sailors who were executed at the same time as that officer to be exhumed, taken out to sea, and sunk. The order was carried out last night. The object of this step was to put an end to the continuous pilgrimages to the graves and to stop the constant placing of flowers on them. – Reuter.
