Lodz, Russian roland, to the Frank'
furter Zeitucg, a very conservative
and thoroughly reiiable.? organ,
states that Borne days ago "a social
ist leader was shot dead in that
city by the police on the street, al
though the man could easily have
been arrested without trouble.
Immediately after the killing the
executive committee of the socialist
party held a secret session, at which
it was decided to take vengeance
for the murder. All members of
the party who could be reached at
short notice were gathered together
and informed of tbe resolution.
From the meeting place the
Reds proceeded through various
streets, dynamiting everything in
sight. ..They threw, bombs into the
prison yard, into Vodka saloons,
into the hallway of the Town Hall
and through the windows of various
municipal buildings, and finally
moved against the barracks and
bureau of the police. A determio
ei; attack was made on theee struc
tures. ' '
Bombs were thrown among groups
of policemen gathered for the de

the blizzard of 1888, by which all
storrns are estimated as great or

bound as it is tonight. The city
itself is lying nnder a foot of snow
that in many places has been bank- n
ed by the wind to a height of sever- N
al feet. Surface travel early in the '
day was abandoned, overhead trans
it was irregular and alow, and it
remained lor the underground roads
to carry home, so far as they could
reach, the hundreds of . thousands

of the riota, which are eagerly read.
The people were shocked at the

spread feeliug that the bureaucracy
will be powerless to stem the tide
of reforms, and that the downfall
of the bureaucratic system must

foreign legation paid- -'

revolution has begun."'
A detachment of sailors made
straight for naval quarters and
preparations were made to meet
the attack from inside the buildiDg.
But the soldiers mutinied and re
fused to fire, saying that if they
were compelled to 6hoot,- officers
would be the targets.
The rioting sailors in the . mean

admiralty yards. ' At 50 points at

spread rapidly. The majority of
the structures will be destroyed.
