TORPEDO - BOATS IX PURSUIT
. Potenikln's Movements Cause Revolt
in Crimea and Caucasus.
ST. PETERSBURG. July C Such news
as came from the Black Sea and Cau
casus during the day was extremely
alarming. The whole Crimean Peninsula
Is on the verge of revolt, and anarchy
reigns In the .mountains of the Caucasus
from Batoum td Baku.
At Theodosla the workmon are backing
the mutineers. The crews of several
ships in the harbor have Joined the muti
neers; and the well-to-do class of the pop
ulation has fled In panic. The guns of
the Kniaz Potemkln are trained on the
city, "and a bombardment Is momentarily
Only six hours away, on the other side
of the peninsula. Admiral Chouknln's
fleet, which Includes six warships, not
counting Rear-Admiral Kruger's squad
ron, lies at anchor under the menace of
the guns of the fortress. Chouknin evi
dently is afraid to test the loyalty of his
crews by setting them the task'of cap
turing the mutineers' ship.
According to reports current In St. Pe
tersburg, four torpedoboats. -with volun
teers on board, have sailed for Theodosla
to sink' the Kniaz Potemkln, but the re
.ports lack confirmation and must be ac
cepted with . reserve. The Strcmitelny.
which actually had a volunteer crew on
board for that purpose and missed her
quarry at Kustenji, left Varna yesterday.
Several boats which Lewis Nixon built
are at Sevastopol completed and might
be used. - Mr. Nixon himself has not been
heard from, and telegrams dispatched to
him remain unanswered. This does not
indicate cause for alarm, so far as be
personally Is concerned, but is probably
due to the censorship. However. It tends
to confirm the extreme gravity of the sit
uation. Telegrams from the Caucasus, where a
state bordering on anarchy has existed
for a month say the news of the mutiny
on board the Kniaz Potemkln made an
eleotrical Jmpressjon, and was the signal
for a general movement with which
troops and police are practically power
less to cope. Railroad traffic in all di
rections has ceased, and the people are
fleeing on horseback and In all kinds of
vehicles over the mountain roads and
trails. Almost consternation prevails In
official circles here.

"Wlrenlus Says Only Thing Is to Sink
ST. PETERSBURG. July 6. Inquiry at
the Admiralty this morning failed to
confirm the report current late last night
that the Kniaz Potemkln had already
left Theodosla. Admiral Wlrenlus, chief
of the naval staff. Informed the Asso
ciated Press that according to the latest
advices the battleship Is still at Theo
dosla. "What will be done?" asked the cor
respondent. "We cannot tell you," was the reply.
"The whole affair is In the hands of Vice
Admiral Chouknin, and he has not com
municated his plans to us. Admiral Kru
ger's ships were due to leave Odessa
yesterday afternoon. They should now
be arriving: at Sebastopol."
"Do you think that upon their arrival
Admiral Chouknin will direct the squadron-
to try and capture the Kniaz Po
temkln?" "We do not know what he will do. In
my opinion the easiest and promptest
solution would be to send a torpedoboat
to fink her. and I have advocated that
course.- The situation is grave. The ship
Is not In the hands of her crew, but In
the hands of the revolutionary commit
tee which went on board at Odessa. They

the powers. They want to be considered

will be to ask for recognition as bellig

feited and will stop at nothing. In the
eyes of the law they are outlaws and

make an example of the crew and restore
discipline in the Black Sea fleet,"
Admiral Wlrenlus said there was no

steamer bound for Constantinople.

T. J. Bradley, receiver of the failed

the monev accepted for deposit "within
two or three days" before the institution

waa stated at the time of the failure,

criminal proceedings against them for

the Statehnujse todny following the
discovery that the state bohl.s the bond
of a surety company for $258.03 to In
sure It against loss of money In deposit
In the bank In process of collection.
This means that at least one-half of the

01 CONVICT IS CAUGHT

Seven Other Escapes.
TACOMA, Wash.. July ?. Ed Stlckney.
one of the eight convicts who escaped
from the United States penitentiary at
McNeill's Island, last Monday night, was
captured Just before midnight tonight,
while coming out of Point Defiance Park
to meet a friend who was to furnish him
with clothing and money. Th capture was
made by a posse of men headed by Dep
uty United States Marshal Tom Morris.
Stlckney was walking In toward Taco
ma and was met by the posee. who had
left the car and was walking along the
tracks to Point Defiance Park, where a
search was to bo made tonight. He made
no resistance, but refused to give any in.
formation as to the whereabouts of the
remaining seven convicts. Stlckney had
been in hiding on Vashon Island, across
from the Park, and had decided on to
night for his escape. United States Mar
shal Hopkins has Information which leads
him to believe that a majority of the es
caped prisoners are on Vashon Island,
and a large posse will be sent there to
morrow. When captured. Stlckney admitted he
was on his way to meet a friend, and
that If he had been given a little
more time he would have been out of the
country. He was almost starved when
found. One of the boats in which the
convicts escaped was found scuttled off
the beach at Vashon Island today, and the
other was found near Stellacoom.
It Is learned that two of the convicts
left fhe island and went to OUala. where
they secured food. It Is also thought two
more of the convicts are in Tacoma to
night, as two men answering the descrip
tion of the convicts held up two little
girls tonight and took some food away
Marshal Hopkins Is confident more of
the prisoners will be captured on Vashon

to provide these essentials as quickly as
possible, and to only Increase the working

an exaggerated character about health

cases of fever among employes of the

deaths. During the month of July up to
