last act or the national tragedy and will
result in either the downfall of tha gov
ernment or a victory for autocracy. Tne
conditions have almost reached r tha pro
portions of a civil war. It ia not proper
to call the movement a mere industrial

seems imminent. Many soidiers have
been arrested while addressing the people
to join the rebels'. Prices of all aupolies

lentless war upon the agitators.
