" Compelled to Follow the Kniazpoterakin."

Story of the Impressed Officers

Kniazpotemkinl asrain in Lawful Custody, St. Petersburg, July 10 Torpedoer No. 267 has returned to Russia, those aboard declaring that they did not mutiny, but were compelled to follow the Kniazpotemkin. MatnßChenko, the ringleader of the mutiny, instead of surrender, wished to blow up the Kmazpotem&in f There were bloodstains everywhere about the vessel, and the cabins were pillaged. The seven officers who were kept aboard as prisoners ■were in ft pitiable condition, the result of ill treatment, and declared that Matuschenko himself killed ten officers. The mutineers, with revolvers, compelled two engineers and an officer to navigate. The ammunition aboard would have sufficed the Kniazpotemkin to hold her own in a great engagement. The Codsulb at Odessa are greatly relieved. Admiral Kruger, with two battleships, four torpedoers, and a destroyer, has arrived at Kuctenji. He exchanged salutes •with tbeßoumaaian cruiser Elizabetha^d claimed possession of the Kniazpotemkin. The commander reported that King Charles had ordered the transfer to Russia, which was effected an hour later, after a Russian priest had held a service of purification for the murder and rebellion.
