1905-07-15 THE BLACK SEA MUTINY

London Times, 15 July 1905, p. 5: THE BLACK SEA MUTINY. BUDAPEST, JULY 14.*

            Six sailors who belonged to the Kniaz Potemkin arrived here yesterday by the express from Bukarest and after a short stop continued their journey. They stated that a general mutiny of all the crews of the Black Sea squadron had been planned and that the scheme only failed in consequence of a misunderstanding as to the date of the revolt, which had been fixed for the beginning of August, but accidentally broke out earlier aboard the Kniaz Potemkin. [The above appeared in our Second Edition of yesterday.]
