ST. PETERSBURG, via Eydtkuhnen,
Dec lo.4-Speclal.) But one question is
being asked at present in thla unhaopy
country, "Whero is the revolution leading
Russia? It is the one all-important sub
ject before the people, and happy would
be the man who could foresee just what
is ahead. But thjs is Impossible. The
best-informed men can only guess at
what may come to pass. All is chaos
and disorder and, what is worse, there
Is no light ahead. Russia today might
well be likened to a giant staggering down
a blind alley in the blackest midnight
He knows not where his path leads: he
cannot tell where pitfalls are before him.
The end o it all can only be guessed
And no; prediction Is of any value.
For this revolution Is a terrible thing.
It has paralyzed industry, it has ruined
all business, it has tied up the postal
and telegraph service and, when it de
sired. It .has effectually stopped all rail
road traffic It .has been responsible for
crimes .unspeakable; It has caused thej
bloo ft Russian patriots to How from one
end pf the empire to the ether; it has ar
rayed eise anst eteee iuM was against
mas; It has bred mutiny In the "navy" r3
created -dissensien " 7jVtli soldiers:
it has caused the peau'ivrle against
the -tyrant who "fer centuries b&ve dat-
kutWd-them. afrd grejind them to the
earth. It has practically nulelfiefl the au
thority of, the government and given to
the proletariat powers he never dreamed
of possessing 12 months ago, because he
has learned how he may bend all author
ity, even that of the Cxar, to his will..
No Strong Hand to Guide.
The revolution has rushed blindly in a
thousand directions. It has made great
leaps, then it has halted for a moment in
the face of some unexpected check from
the government, but it haa only hesitated
for a moment, before turning in another
direction to rush into new excesses. The
most paralyzing feature of it all Is that
there Is. no bead to the revolution. With
a strong man to take the helm. Russia
might weather the storm from the reign
of terror that it is felt must come. But
there Is no controlling mind; there is no
man strong enough to command obedi
ence from the millions who are striving
to obtain liberty, of which they have re
ceived but a taste, and know not how to
proceed tp obtain it. There is little won
der then that the question. Where is the
revolution leading Russia? is on the Hps
of every one. In the struggle between
monarchist, royalist, bureaucrat, consti
tutionalist, conservative, radical, peasant,
eoclallst, proletariat, anarchist and a hun
dred other "lsts," who will win? To
which cause will enough people rally to
Bive it control? No one can answer.
In the awful turmoil it is not strange
there should be great fear lest, before
conditions are adjusted and the country
passes into a state where It is possible for
nil to live, it will experience a reign of
terror, the like of which the world has
never . seen.
Loyalty of Army Shaken.
Will the government be able to eventu
ally assert Itself and restore order, or
wifl the throne fall? If the army remains
loyal, perhaps the problem will be worked
out and Russia may continue as a mon
archy with constitutional limitations. But
it is extremely problematical whether the
army will remain loyal. In Manchuria
the troops are on the verge of open re
volt. There have been already outbreaks
of minor .importance, but they show the
temper of the soldiers. Throughout Rus
sia proper there la hardly a garrison that
is not in a state of mutiny. The frequent
mutinies that have occurred have proven
conclusively that at least a considerable
part of the army is not loyal. The ques
tion of the army's loyalty can hardly be
tested until it becomes time to establish
a dictatorship. This will probably be the
last resort of the Czar, and, if it falls,
Nicholas will probably be a monarch with
out a kingdom, if. indeed, his life is not
forfeited. And the revolution has hardly
commenced. There have been revolution
ary outbreaks in nearly every town and
hamlet in the country, but they do not
really represent the revolutloru. In many
Instances they have been Incited by bu
reaucrats with the insane idea, of forcing
the Czar to reinstate the autocracy, which
is now' impossible.
Secret Organizers or Revolt.
The real revolution that is to be de
cided 'is not to be an affair of street
brawls, xautlntes of the garrisons, clashes
between revolutionary hotheads and the
troops and sheutlng of defiance to the
Caar and the government. The real revo
lution isiar deeper, quieter, more power
tul, tiH:et UBt.-threteHiBg. It is 'the!
force that organized the great railroad
strike: that wrung from the Cxar his
grant of a constitution, which has not
been put in operation. It is the power
that has tied up the telegraph lines and
put the postal service out of commission-bit
is the Influence that aroused all
Russia to think, to compare the condi
tions of the subjects of the Czar with
that of the people of every other civilized
Final Blow Is Delayed. ,
At the present time the revolution is
resting. The leaders are waiting. They
know the time to strike has not yet at
rlved. When they do fire the mine, the
world will probably stand aghast at the
havoc that will be wrought. The revolu
tionary leaders approve of the outbreaks
that have occurred. They give the gov
ernment plenty to. do in quelling these
disorders, which are no sooner put down
in one spot than they break out in an
other and distract the attention of the
authorities from themselves. But the
revolution Itself is too gigantic to be
represented by these outbreaks, serious
as some of them have been and serious
ly as they have threatened the stability
of the government. These outbreaks have
been uncertain and some have failed.
When the revolution really breaks, it
will not be uncertain, nor will it fail, if
the government docs not yield to the de
mands of the revolutionists before they
are ready to launch the revolution. Then
will" come the deluge. Without a real head
for the various interests striving for the
mastery; -with all semblance of authority
swept away, as it probably will be. what
else can happen but civil war of the
worst description? And while the revolu
tion is halting, waiting to sec if the
government will yield without the last
resort to force, -the Czar is still tempor
izing. Witte Ready lo Give Up.
Premier Wltte is almost helpless. He
is held back by his own Ministers. Del
uged with thousands of conflicting de
mands fort reform, he can accomplish
little. If he is given time, he may work
the miracle, but will he be given time?
The revolutionists are determined on one
thing, they will have their demands
granted. They are waiting to give the
government a chance to grant them, be
cause the revolution has not been com
pletely organized. When It is. if the
need of revolution has not passed, it will
be launched In earnest.
Count Witte has held the middle
ground, and in doing so antagonized
everyone. He Is ready to lay down his
portfolio, but the Czar will not allow him
to do so. Should this only strong man of
Russia give up the struggle, then noth
ing can save the country' from complete
anarchy. The reactionaries hate him
and the Radicals distrust him. But he
is necessary to save the Czar for a little
while longer. But there arc few people
who really hope he will be able to weath
er the storm.
3an of Action "Wanted.
' WIth Witte gone, who is left? Among
the intellectuals onlv fVmnt TvOetni on,
piaxini Gorky loom abbve the crowd.
Tolstoi would solve Russia's problem by
gMng the land to the peasants and In
stituting the single-tax system. Gorky,
once himself a tramp and prophet .of the
oppressed, would institute a sort of so
cialism, based upon equality and broth
erhood. But what the revolution needs now is
men of action rather than men of
thought; men who can direct the awaken
ing of Russia's millions into something
besides blindness, rage and aimless de
struction. And there are no such men In
sight. Therein lies the greatest danger.
The rise of even a strong revolutionist
would be welcomed by the great majori
ty of the people, because they would
then feel some confidence that if the
revolution docs break it will be guided
in some certain direction.
But while the revolutionary leaders are
waiting the revolution is progressing. It
is making headway every day. Each
day sees some development of signifi
cance. The power of the revolutionists
has Just been demonstrated afresh In the
energy which was Injected Into Hie postal
and telegraph strike. The authorities
have boasted that the strike would be
brought to a pedy termination. At
a meeting today attended by 20 tele
graph 'officials an answer to these boasts
was framed In the passage of resolutions
declaring tha the strike will go on until
the demands of the operators arc com
plied with. Other resolutions were
adopted warning the government, Count
Wlttcc and Minister Durnovo that the
world should not be deceived through
the reports that have been given out
lhat the strike Is weakening because of
the determination of the men not to up
Force Jews to Sell Out.
There is great significance as well in
a meeting called for tonight, when a pow
erful group of tradesmen will consider
the question of making an attempt to
buy out all the Jewish business in St.
Petersburg and thus Insure the with
drawal of the Jews from the business
world. The proposition has been made
to pay the JewlBh tradesmen of the city
140.000.000 roubles for their combined
business enterprises and stocks of goods.
If the Jews refuse to sell out at the
figures offered by the tradesmen the
threat is openly made that their shops
will be plundered and destroyed. The
movement that has just been inaugurat
ed may lead to anti-Semite outbreaks
here similar to those that have occurred
in otner Russian cities. A religious
demonstration has been organized fdr
tomorrow, and anti-Jewish sentiment
may crop out at that tinic.
Mutiny at Capital.
There were fresh developments yester
day showing the mutinous feeling exist
ing among army and navy forces. The
more Important demonstrations occurred
here and at the Schluesselburg fortress,
although small mutinies are reported
from several points. In this city It was
necessary to call out a strong force of
soldiers to surround the sailors of the
Fourteenth and Eighteenth naval divi
sions In order to send them to the fort
ress at Crondstadt. These sailors have
been on the verge of mutiny for weeks.
One of the men boldly addressed Ad
miral Niedermlllcr. saying:
"You. should be drowned in our blood.
Tou want to herd us together so that you
can repeat the massacre of Sevastopol.
The sailors barricaded themselves in
their barracks and refused to move. A
strong force of soldiers finally corralled
the mutinefvrs a.n& forced them-to board
.barges which carried them, to Cronstadt.

"I christen thee Idaho!" she cried. In
clear, distinct tones, as, the big battleship
started on its journey - down the ways.
Vlth the grace of a swan Jt took its dip.
Fully 10.0W persons witnessed the launch
ing, the largest crowd ever seen at
On the christening platform a dlstln-.-guished
company was assembled. Repre
senting the state were Governor and Mrs.
Gooding, Colonel WPliam C Hunter, of
the Governor's staff; Chief Justice and
Mrs. C O. Stockslager and about 30 citi
zens of Idaho, including Senator Dubois.
Senator Hey burn and Congressman
French, and their wives.
Lunch Follows Launching.
Immediately after the launching -the
members of the christening party and
500 invited guests were piloted to the
mould loft, where they were guests of
the Cramp Company at luncheon. The
loft had been prettily decorated. After
the luncheon Mr. Gooding, the Senators
and others made appropriate speeches.
At the -launching no one felt more proud
or more elated than the Governor's
daughter. Shortly before she' was escort
ed to the christening stand she was pre
sented with a beautiful gold locket, set
with diamonds and pearls and a gold
chain, by officials of the company.
The Idaho looks very different today
from the way she will appear when com
pleted. She Is now half finished. Her hull
below water line Is completed, but her
upper works are a mere skeleton, and. In
a coat of bright red paint, present a strik
ing appearance. None of the armor has'
been placed as yet, her sides now being
temporarily protected with heavy timbers.
She has every .appearance of an unfinished
Ship Takes Water Well.
The launching was set for noon, when
the tide was at flood. The christening
party arrived promptly, and Immediately
250 workmen with sledgehammers drove

'Slowly she started to glide down the
greased ways. Miss Gooding raised the
bottle aloft. It crashed against the bow,
the wine gushed forth and sizzled on the
bow plates. To the cheering of thousands,
the din of steam whistles and the waving
of many white handkerchiefs, the Idaho
rode down gracefully and took the -dip
beautifully. She pushed out well Into the
Delaware River and was then towed back
to a slip close bj her sister ship, the Mis
sissippi, where she will have her armor
put on and machinery installed.

PHILADELPHIA. Dec 9. (Special.)
The Idaho is the Sth. battleship to be
added to the modern American Navy.
With her sister ship, the Mississippi, she
was authorized by the act of March 3.
lid. was placed under contract January
25. 3SOI. and by the terms of that contract
must be completed and turned over to the
Government by May 25. ISO. She will
cost approximately I3.CC0.CC0.
Though one bf the latest battleships,
the Idaho Is not one of the largest In
our Navy. In size she closely resembles
the historic Oregon, but differs from that
ship in having less armor, but greater ar
mament. The Idabor though much
smaller than many recently built battle
ships, is as heavily armed as any. and by
many naval ofrtcers is considered an Ideal
engine of naval warfare
To be exact, the Idaho haa a length of
273 feet, and a breadth of 77 feet, with a
displacement of 13.000 tons. There are 13
battleships of greater dimensions, and 10
of them havo greater tonnage. For in
stance, the Connecticut, Kansas. Louis
iana. Minnesota. New Hampshire and
Vermont each have a length of CO feet
and displacement of 16.0CO tons. 1hey
are the largest battleships of the Amer-
lean Navy.. Several others measun
leet irom stem to stera ana we
Missouri and Ohio are 2SS feet ov
but these three ships 'have 'less ton:
than the Idaho.
Larger Than" the Oregon. '
The Oregon, on the other hand, meas
ures but 31S "feet from jend to epd, and
has a displacement of only 10,324 tons.
The record madeby this ship in the
Spanish War. -as compared to the record
of spme of. the larger ships, demonstrates
very clearly that size Is not the deter
mining" factor In the usefulness or effec
tiveness of a battleship.
The Idaho Is designed to develop a
speed of 17 knots an hour, but .all the
ships built by the Cramps have exceeded
the speed requirement, and it is to be
presumed that the Idaho will do the
same. This is a good average speed for
a battleship: it is more speed than the
Oregon developed: It Is more speed than,
half the battleships of our Navy produced
on their trials: though it Is below the
speed required of some of the monster
battleships of greater dimensions than
On her trial, before she. is fully
equipped, the Idaho will draw 24 feet 8
inches of water: -her mean draft when
fully loaded will be 27 feet 14 Inches.
This full load will Include tilled bunkers,
which have a capacity of 17S0 tons of
Equal to Any in Guns.
The most interesting feature of every
warship, and in a sense the most im
portant. Is her armament; her batteries.
In this particular the Idaho wll be the
peer of any battleship of the American
Navy. Her main battery will Include
four 12-Inch breech-loading rifles; eight
S-Inch breech-loading rifles, eight 7-Inch
breech-loading rifles and two 15-inch tor
pedo tubes. 4jThls will be supplemented by
a secondary battery, comprising 12 3-Inch.
14-pounder rapid-fire guns, six 3-pounder
semi-automatic guns, two 1-po under auto
matic guns, two 1-pounder rapld-flre
.guns, two 3-Inch fleldpleces. two machine
guns of .30 caliber, and six automatic
guns of the same caliber.
The batteries of the, Idaho are larger
than those of the Oregon In all respects,
save one the Oregon carried, four 13-lnch
rifles, while the largest guns of the Idaho
will be of 12-inch bore. Since the Oregon
was built naval experts have decided that
12- Inch rifles arc equally as effective as
13- Inch, and less expensive. For this
reason the 13-lnch gun Is no longer man
ufactured, and the Idaho will be equipped
with the heaviest guns that are supplied
to latter-day battleships.
While the battleship Is built under con
tract, her guns arc manufactured by the
Government at the naval gun factory In
Washington. In fact, all the large rifles
on board the different American war
ships have been built by Uncle Sam In
his own shops.
Guns Mounted in Turrets.
The 12-inch guns will be mounted In
pairs. In two electrically controlled el
liptical turrets, two on the forward deck,
and two on the main deck aft- The S
Inch guns will be mounted in pairs in
four electrically controlled elliptical tur
rets, two tnrretK on either side of the
ship. The 7-inch guns will be mounted
behind 7-lnch armor, along either side of
the vessel on the main deck. The guns
of the secondary battery will be dis
tributed over the ship, in protected posi
tions, where they can have a large arc of
unobstructed tire. Their chief use. will
be in feoaftllR eperatloae. and In case &C
