Storm Ends Rioting at the Capital
, ,. Fighting Continues at Mos-
'" cow Strikers Are Still Out
Odessa, Nov. 1 The day has
been a bloody one in Odessa and
night finds the situation the worst
that it has been at any time. Au
thorities ate doing little to prevent
the attacks on students made by
workmen, and are actually aiding
in the attacks on Jewish quarter,
disturbances are reported from all
parts of the city and the dead num
ber hundreds. Revolutionists at
tacking students caused most of the
trouble. The students have formed
a civil guard and are trying to hold
in check the workmen, who attack
ed them. Dead' bodies are lying
everywhere in the streets.
The fighting today occurred chief
ly in Cathedral Square and Deri
bassey gardens, in the heart of the
city. A mob marched there from
the Preobjtajenski Btreetquay. The
wounded weretaken ? o the municipal
hospital. The crowds participating
in the iiots are composed of the
very roughest element in the city.
People are blaming the authority
for disbanding and disarming
Fighting also took place in the
outskirts of the town. The mob,
incited by the police, attacked the
Tews and hundreds were killed and
wounded. Authorities are reticent
concerning the riots. A huge crowd
marched through the city today.
A semi-official report states that 87
were killed and 80 wounded this
,. Throughout the night indiscrim
inate shooting took place, bands of
roughs parading many quarters,
looting and pillaging. The police
and military are indignant at the
emperor's manifesto and are secret
ly aiding disorderly elements in or
der to give an excuse for violence.
Last night 50 policemen and a large
nnmber of Cossacks disguised as
workmen raided a number of shops
in Jewish quarter, resulting in the
death of many people.
The funeral of the students kill
ed in the recent disturbances took
place today. An immense crowd
participated in the ceremonies and
the bodies were buried ' with extra
ordinary marks of honor.
Strike leaders are issuing procla
mations calling upon the people to
remain firm until amnesty and uni
versal suffrage have been absolute
ly secured. The people are warned
not to place the least faith in the
government promises. Scenes of
disorder in the capital this morning
were ended this afternoon when a
driving sleet storm began, which is
doing more to keep order than all
the soldiers. A reign of terror ex
ists at Odessa and at Moecow, and
many people have been ruthlessly
shot down by the troops in both
cities as well as at Helsiogfors.
Many fatalities are reported from
collisions in various parts of St.
Petersburg last night, though no se
rious rioting. This morning after
a conference with commanding gen
erals, General Trepoff issued a
proclamation concluding with the
"I request the population to
maintain order and give warning
that all attempts to disturb order
will be suppressed with the most
peremptory and categorical meas
ures." Although the people are loud in
their clamor for Trepoff s , resigna
tion there is no indication that he
has stepped out or is likely to.
Last evening while the people
were celebrating the achlevments of
liberty troops fired through a mis
understanding three volleys into
the crowds causing 50 casualties.
The maddened crowd started a pro
cession headed by a woman carry
ing in her arms the body of a baby
killed by the shots.
It is feared that the Btrike will
continue- far some time and
will be eventually followed by a re
course to arm?.
Riverton, Ky., Nov. 1. The
gang of bandits that has for weeks
terrorized small cities in the Ohio
valley on both sides of the river,
blowing many safes and stealing
6 V i r f-1
thousands of dollars, came to grief
last night in an exciting finish after
a raid upon the bank of Willard,
Carter county. As a result four are
in jail, two of them unhurt, - one
mortally wounded and riddled' with
bullets, one slightly wounded and
two other members fleeing for their
lives pursued by posses and blood
hounds. ; -
The robbers entered Willard yes
terday afternoon. They found on
the outskirts of the city a locomo
tive under steam in charge of a
watchman. They bound and gag
ged the watchman and went into
the town where they repeated their
tactics hitherto successful in Brack
ing a safe. .
There were six members in the
gang. Four of the highwaymen
were statiened outside of the bank
to keep watch and the other two en
tered the bank and commenced op
erations on the vault. In a short
time the two experts had placed
their charge of explosive, lighted a
fuse and retired to a safe distance.
An instant later a terrific explosion
occurred, wrecking the huge steel
structure and tearing' the fixtures
and inner walls of the bank build
ings to kindling.
The explosion also had another
effect. The noise was so loud that
citizens were warned and in the
space of a few minutes & large posse
was on its way to the scene of the
noise. The citizens weie all armed
and a running fight immediately
ensued. The six robbers fled leav
ing the contents of the safe untouch
ed and leaping on the ..engine left
the town at full speed.' Blood
hounds were immediately procured
and a large crowd of pursuers start
ed down the track followed by oth
ers who took the roadways in bug
gies and on horseback.
The bandits left the engine a few
miles out and sought refuge in a
6 ld. The dogs took the trail at
the u ack and soon located the flee
ing bandits, where they had stopped
to rest. A command to surrender
was answered by a volley from the
robbers and immediately a terrific
fusilade was commenced. In a short
time two of the men broke from
cover and made their escape being
pursued by a posse and dogs. The
other four were captured.
Paris, Oat. 29. The reopening
of parliament tomorrow will mark
the renewal and undoubtedly the
conclusion of the long and bitter
struggle for the separation of church
and state. The state will immedi
ately take up the separation bill as
it is to pass the house. It has al
ready been approved by the senate
committee by a vote of 10 to 1.
The debate of the bill will begin
November 11. The passage of the
bill by a large majority is a fore'
gone conclusion. This will require
baste, as the senatorial elections
take place January 7.

Portland, Nov. 2. The Oregoni

cratic United States senator. John
H. Mitchell will not resign. While
Senator Mitchell will not discuss
the matter, and while he declines
emphatically to make any state
ment regarding his future course,
there are a few who knew him and
were his friends in sunnier days
and who will still remain loyal to
him, that hint at bis intentions and
disclaim any idea on bis part of re
linquishing his hold upon the sena
torial chair. ' .'V ' "'
Senator Mitchell is an old man,
they Bay, and is under the cloud of
conviction. His political life, is a
thing of the past, a dream of pow

ried and harrsssed by the ever pres

Gut rates on pianos! You have
heard of cut prices on groceries,
but cut prices on pianos, how is it
possible you ask. That is just it.
Before such a thing could be effect
ed there must have been a combin
ation of very unusual conditions.
In the first place it means buy
ing in largeqdantitles, getting out
otthe small way of doing business.
It means the cutting out of every
useless and unnecessary expense.
It means the shipment of pianos
without boxes in special cars which
eaves big sums on freight charges.
Thyan it means the selling of pi
anos so excellent and satisfactory,
that the public demands them.
We have accomplished just these
thingB.. We buy for, the largest

Upon the supreme court the sen

judgment he will not abandon his
grasp upon public office, unless
some condition as yet unforaeen
arises to change his mind. There
are two men in the United Statea
who can hasten the end of the sen
ator's term of office. One of these is
the attorney-general, who can, if he
so de3:r3s, ask that the senator's
caie be set ahead on the docket and
scheduled for a speedy hearing; the
other is ex-Senator John M. Thurs

attorney. These gentlemen could
hasten the end, provided the su
