1905-07-11 THE KNIAZ POTEMKIN

London Times, 11 July 1905, p. 5: THE KNIAZ POTEMKIN. CONSTANZA, JULY 10.*

            Before leaving the Kniaz Potemkin the mutineers opened the sea-cocks and flooded the hold, so that she is now resting on the bottom. It is at present impossible to move her, but it is thought that she will be floated and able to leave for Sevastopol on Wednesday.

 

ODESSA, JULY 10.*

            The authorities here have been informed from Bukarest that the Kniaz Potemkin has sailed for Sevastopol.

 

(FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) ST. PETERSBURG, JULY 10.

            Russia has demanded the surrender of the Potemkin mutineers as common law offenders under the extradition treaty with Rumania. It is believed that Rumania must comply.

 

SEVASTOPOL, JULY 10.*

            Torpedo-boat 267, which declined to surrender to Rumania, has arrived here. The crew of 16 men have been arrested and placed on board the transport Prout. The transport Vecha (?) has likewise arrived.
