STORY OF MUTINY
Situation Critical and Sebastopoi May
Fall
Mebaatopol Nov. 25. The long expect
ed mutiny of the aailora on the verge
of revolt ka come, and Ruia'a strong
hold on the Black Sea I in danger of
ailing completely into their hand.
The situation is critical. All the ehore
equipage, numbering 40(10 men, are in
mm rebellon, having driven awav or
taken the oflieera prisoner. The Brest
regiment of infantry ha gone over to
the mutineer. General Xeplucff, com
muiuler of the fortrea i a captive. The
Hiclimtok regiment, the only other rcgi
mcnt in the city, received the mutineer
with ohcer, but thu far remain loyal.
Some artillerist have joined the men in
the revolt.
Marines Also Disaffected.
The Kuxine fleet i standing in the
offing and still obeying the orders of
Admiral Choukin, but the crew are di
affected and it I a great doubt if they
can be restrained from joining the muti
neer, and a greater doubt if they fire
upon them. The Seventh army corp
waa Juiftily aummoned from Simferopol.
There Is every evidence that the mutiny
waa deliberately planned by social revo
lutionists, who have been pushing their
propaganda with great energy aince the
St. Petersburg strike, organised to save
the Kronstadt mutineers.
Friday, eight sailors seized and dis
armed and expelled their officers. Then
owemhled a great meeting. Admiral
Pizarcvaki, supported by a company,
from the Brest regiment, went to the
meeting, and when it refused to disperse
ordered the troop to fire. Instead of
shooting the mutineera two shot rang
out, and Captain Stein fell dead and mutiny. In both the cabinet and naval

During the night the sailor, having
learned a leon from the ks prudent
mutineer at Kronatadt, elected officers
and pledged themaelvea not to pillage,
kill or drink vodka, and take meat urea
o prevent rowdylra.
Thia morning they were joined by the
workmen of the port and in complete
order, the aailora and workmen marched
to the barracks of the Brest regiment,
and the officer of the regiment threat
ened to Are on the mutineers, but Gen
eral Nepleuff, a colonel and five other
officers surrendered and were sent un
der an escort to the marine prison.
Being re inforced by the rank and file
of the entire regiment, tite mutineers
and workers formed a proceeeion com-
ped of 10,000 men end marched
through the city. At Xovnailsteff Place,
the prooesaion encountered several com
panic of the Bieloatok regiment with a
machine gun battery.
Received With ICHUry Honors
The mutineera anoroached with handi
pUlTjng Mtona, Mthem
dier received the promaion with full
military honors. The Bieloatok men re
slated the appeals of the mutineers to
join them. The batter, however, remain
ed with the mutineers, and participated
in the meeting. . i
In the afternoon the sailors sent a
deputation to Admiral Chouknin, re
questing him to come to the sailors' bar
racks and hear their grievances. The
admiral in a short speech, pointed out
madness and criminality of their action
and the dreadful penalties to which they
hud subjected themselves, and declined
to accede to the reipjet.
The city is panic stricken and the in
habitant are fleeing. This evening the
mutineer stopped the trains in order
to prevent the arrival of troops from
Simferopol.

St Petersburg, Nor. 27. At midnight
last night the Associated Press wa in
formed by an official of the admiralty

is vouchsafed. There is a strong im
pression here that Intelligent leader are
directing the mutiny. It is evident also,
that sailors at (Youstadt had under
