Russia itself few people know of its
horrors. The official report minim-
zes it as ueual,jnerely stating that
a party of Jews at BialUtok threw
bomb which killed some soldiers.
whereupon tbe troops In self-defense
fired,' and that "dariDg the acuffle"
40 Jews were killed and lSOwouod-ed.
But reports from a correepond-
ent eay trustworthy eye-witnesses
draw a sanguinary picture. Bail-
istok lies near tbe junction of the
St. Petersburg-Warsaw and the
ECoenigsberg-0 JeBsa railroads, and
many troops are quartered there.
The town has 65,ooo inhabitants,
three-quarters of ihem Jews. Sjme
Jewish workloeaicn were arrested
there three weeks ago, and treated
witb exceptional brutality by the
soldiers and policemen, whose offi
cers threatened openly that they
would cruBh the Jewish population
and "teach the Jews a lesson."
A email gathering of Jews, pos
sibly Socialist?, but not authorized
by the Socialist party to act, order
ed that the bruial treatment of
their alleged coreligionists ba av
enged. The persons picked to . do
this work. threw a bomb on August
12 among some soldiers, of whom
thren were killed, while a dozen
workingmen were wounded, some
fatallv. This was tbe signal for a
violent outbreak by the troops
against all the Jews, innocent and
guilty alikf. Soldiers marched up
and down Baihslok streets, shooting
indiscriminately whoever was in
eight. They entered the houses,
killing and robbing the occupants
six cases there and of the attempt
to blame New Orleans tor them.
This is regarded as rather strange
in view of the fac t that of all of
the tight quarantine against New
Orleans, Natchez had maintained
tbe tig bet t, not even allowing its
own people to return here if they
have been near New Orleans.
Seattle, Aug. 26 The Chinese
government has succeed! eg in
breaking up meetings held for the
purpose of boycotting American
goods and is preventing the spread
of its movement by agitators. The
vernacular jrress been- compelled to
abandon its campaign but among
those who have taken up the fight
no headway has been made toward
This is the way Woo Bing, a part
ner in Qaong Tuck & Co. earns up
the situation: He has just return
ed from China, and is convinced
that as soon as a new treaty is sign
ed or a promise of changes is made
by the American government, the
sentiment among those who have
led the fight will die out.
"It is impossible for the Chinese
government to compel Chinese to
eat American flour or to buy Am
erican goods," said Woo Bing to
day. "Bat the government can
and is euceediDg in breaking up the
boycott meetings. Tbe government
has succeeded in stopping tbe re-
esentatives of the boycotters who
go trom town to town to talk
against American goods, and strang-
rs going uto a new town for news
of tbe fight find it a)m')et impossible
o learn anything. The boycotters
are afraid to hold public meetings
or to give information to thoee they
do not know.
'Of course the boycott has spread
widely and a large percentage of
Chinese know of the fight. Some
of the boycotters have secured co
pies of ail American trademarks
and other signs that show Ameri
can manufacture. These have
been shown the people, so they will
kuow what not to buy. The work
has stopped because the govern

and swept away like chaff. The
scaffolding around tbe new Eagle's
