Socialist Holds Chancellor.Too
Friendly Toward Russia.
Germany's Policy Held Not'to Be One
of Strict Neutrality Message of
Kaiser to Roosevelt Brought
Into Discussion."?.-.,
BERLIN, Dec 9. Chancellor Yon Bu
low, at the opening of - the' ' Reichstag
today, said: I ' ' '
"The allied governments Jqtend tblay.
before you, after the discussions of the-:
first reading of the budget are ended,
commerclal treaties with Russia, Rou
xnanla, Belgium. Italy, Swltseriand and
Eervia. The negotiations with Austria
Hungary, as you are aware, reached a
deadlock, and because of Insurmountable
differences of opinion, were broken off."
Heir Von Voimar, Socialist, rellex-ed
Herr Bebel, the Socialist leader, today.
In the assault upon the Government. At
the conclusion of a long speech, sharply
arraigning Chancellor Von Bulow for his
alleged overfricndly attitude toward Rus
sia, Horr Von Voimar took up Emperor
"William' telegrams, referring to the one
cent to President Roosevelt. He said:
"In coolness of telegram style, we could
learn something from the Americans. The
dispatch is, in one respect, not without
advantage for Germany, since the em
pire's head in a telegram to President
Roosevelt did not address him personal
ly, but expressed his admiration of tho
United States.
Von Voimar said the Socialists by no
means saw their ideal in American con
ditions. Republican capitalism being no
better than monarchic, "but we can
learn from America free, safe govern
ment In choosing our highest official and
taking back his commission after a fixed
period. There Is no need of a law in
the United States against arbitrary en
croachments on popular rights. The most
loyal German can learn from the ex
change of telegrams that there is nothing
absolutely fixed in political and social
order, and that Germany's mixed, unde
veloped, slavish political condition can
not last forever, and that the German
people finally are marching toward freer i
conditions." j
Von Bulow, Jn reply. Ignored thispart j
of Von Volmaf'sspeech. j
, Von Voimar, In ; the earlier part of his
speech, pointed out that the government
had chosen an inopportune" moment' to
increase the army.
Russia Badly-.Crippled,
"Russia." he continued. "Is so crippled
from a military and moral sense that j
there can arise. noo.uestion pf danger on
the Eastern frontier 'for a long time, -and
Europe Is thereby, relieved". ofa"h' enor- ;
xnous burden, and Bussla's defeat has j
given a severe blow to France's policy of j
revenge." '!
Von Voimar repelled the imputation-J
that the Socialists wished Germany to
Interfere In the Far Eastern .war, adding:
"The situation at the theater of war
in the interna state of Russia is not yet
ripe. Therefore we demand neutrality
not formal but actual."
Von Voimar then took up the state
ment that Russia intends to raise a great
loan in Germany and that Germany will
get the largest part of the. orders for
war .material and for building the new
Russian fleet and said:
".It would be a crime to advise Ger
mans to lend money to Russia under the
present circumstances, and it would b'e a
breach of neutrality if Germany allows
the new Russian fleet to be built here."
Referring to Von Bulow's words in re
ply to Horr Bebel, Herr Von Voimar ex
pressed amazement at the fact that "any
body can call the struggle against Russian
despotism a crime. It is only explicable
through our deep-seated subservance and
subjection to Russia."
The Socialists loudly applauded the
speaker's remark that the "Chancellor's
policy toward Rii&sSa is a reinsurance
against democracy."
He supported this with a quotation from
the speech-vof the State's Attorney at the
Koenlgburg trial, who said Germany had
an interest in maintaining Russian des
potism. Quoting Von Bulow's complaint that
the Socialists . wanted to overthrow the
existing order of tilings in Russia, Von
Voimar turned to the Chancellor and said:
"Yes. Mr. Chancellor, of the Empire,
that .is what we wish to do and we have
all Europe as our accomplices."
This statement was greeted with tre
mendous and long applause from the left.
Herr Von Voimar next took exception
to the stand taken by Von Bulow that the
circulation of German literature In Russia
was a treasonable act. showed that the
Russian law only punished an overt act,
and added:
"Ict us not be more Russian in Ger
many than the Russians themselves."
Chancellor in Defense.
The Chancellor showed evident respect
for his iantangonlst. who is a Bavarian
nobleman, and still betrays the effects
of a wound received during the Franco
Prussian "War The Chancellor referred
to Von Volmar's "chivalrous defense of
Herr Bebel," and defended the govern
ment's policy towards Russia. He as
serted that It was one of strict neutrality,
corresponding with the the traditional at
titude of Germany toward the Russian
Empire, and regretted that the Socialists
treated Russian relations wholly from the
standpoint or a political party, 3ust as
many Germans gave vent to their feelings
during the Boer War to exercise the os
tensible and moral right to criticise for
eign affairs. . ,
"The German," he continued, "has an
unfortunate sympathy for an unfortunate
land." ' -
The Chancellor criticised the .German
comic press for its- "violent and abusive
treatment of Russia," earnestly denied
that a j-ecret treaty exists between Ger
many and Russian explicitly declined to
take Von Volmaf's optimistic views re-!
gardlng'the French -plans for revenue and
"Germany has been able to become the"
pivotal point In the peace movement be
cause of. her strength. Any weakness of
our race swould immediately arise warlike
passions, "vtlermany'.s ' weakness would,
not be a danger to us alone, but also to
the peace of Europe and of the world,
which we all want to maintain'
The Chancellor was greeted with great
applause as he sat dow.n,

Plehve's Slayers Give History
of Revolutionary Society.
ST. PETERSBURG, Dec 9. The indlctr
ment on which Sasoneff ,the assassin of
Minister- of the interior Yon Plehve and
Sikorifsky, his accomplice, will be tried
on December 13, is a formidable docuV
meht, reciting the history of the assas
sination plot and details of the crime,
and revealing for the first time the lnr
teresting facts about the accused and
confessions, made by them, winding up
with the formal charge The document;
which has been shown to the Associated
Press, states that both Sasoneff and
Sikorifsky belonged to a lighting organi
zation of social revolutionaries, tho cen
tral committee of which was organized
abroad in 1902. The object of the or
ganization was to overthrow the auto
cracy and replace with a republican so
cialist regime.
The document describes the manner in
which the party, organized secret circles
for the distribution of proclamations, or
ganizing the peasants, stirring up uni-
By special arrangement with her pub
lishers. The Sunday Oregonlan tomor
row will publish a ppe epitome of "Mrs.
Maybrlck'g Own Story: My Fifteen Lost
Tears." In seclusion and under the
shelter of a friend's roof, Mrs. May
brick, ever since her arrival in America,
has devoted all her time to this recital.
It Is literally her own story and pitifully
verslty students, fomenting agrarian dis
sensions and also preaching terrorism and
the murder of statesmen who sustained
the autocracy and took steps to suppress
political disturbances. It lays the mur
ders of Slplaguine, Von Plehve's predeces
sor in the office of Minister of the Inter
ior, and Bogdanovltch, Governor-General
of Ufa, and the attempts on the lives of
Prince John Obolensky, Governor-General
,of Finland, and Pobedonosteff, Procurator-General
of the Holy Synod, at the
door of the fighting organization, which
the document says, condemned Von Plehvo
to death soon after his appointment.
The attempts on Von Plehve's life were
frustrated by the police on April 13 at
the Hotel Dunord, by which Pokitoloff
was blown up with a bomb similar to the
one that killed Von Plehve.
Scandal in High Life.
The Indictment reveals in 'this connec
tion a scandal in high life, a room ad
joining the one in the Hotel Dunord oc
cupied by Pokitoloff having been occu
pied by a naval cadet and a lady of noble
birth, who, however, escaped death by be
ing at supper at the time.
The execution of Von Plehve's death
sentence, the Indictment says, was then
undertaken by Sasoneff, a student at Mos
cow University, and the son of a mer
chant of Birsk, and Samuel Nevi Sikorif
sky, aged 20, a leatherworker of Knyshln,
In the Province of Grodno. Sasoneff had
been twice tried for treasonable offenses,
first la 19M and Again In 1S02. On the
latter occasion he was exiled to Siberia
for five years, but escaped abroad on his
way Into exile.
The movements of both the accused
showed that the murder was planned on
tho occasion of one of Minister Von
Plehve's weekly journeys on Thursday,
to the railroad station on the way to Pe
tcrhof to report to the Emperor. He had
previously made two trips' to St. Peters
burg on "Wednesdays.
On "Wednesday, July 19, the day before
the murder, he went to Ostroff. a station
on the St. Petersburg-Warsaw Railway,
having provided himself with a cloak of
the naval pattern. The morning of the
murder Sasoneff and Sikorifsky met on
a bridge over the canal near the "War
saw station, each being armed with an in
fernal machine, the ingenuity of which
is minutely described.
The indictment then describes in detail
the murder of Von Plehve and his coach
man; how Sasoneff was stationed in front
of the "Warsaw Hotel and Sikorifsky be
yond the canal bridge, and say3 the bomb
struck the carriage between the Minister
and the coachman, killing both and in
juring 11 others. It also gives tho of
ficial account of the wounds Inflicted upon
the Minister.
According to this account the -whole
lower part of the face was disfigured,
both jaws were broken, splinters from the
carriage . were imbedded in the face, and
the upper Hp was torn off. There were
two fractures of the skull and the right
afm, thigh and 13 ribs were broken.'
Murderer Not Recognized at First.
The Interesting fact is revealed that
sasoneff was not recognized as the mur
derer until he regained consciousness,
and shouted, "Long live the fighting or
ganization!" Sikorifsky. having ascertained that Von
Plehve was dead, escaped to Ostroff.
where he took a boat, telling the boatman
to row near the Baltic works where the
battleship Slava was anchored. He threw
his bomb into tho river and the boatman
thought he was attempting- to blow tip
the Slava. Although the boatman was
offered 10 roubles, he put In shore and
Insisted Upon handitfg Sikorifsky to the
.police. -
This incident gave rise to the report'
that -an attempt had been made to de
stroy tho Snlva", which report was de
nied at the time by tho Associated
Press. The whole narrative, In fact,
confirms tho Associated Kress stato
jnent regarding theaffalr. The bomb
was subsequently found.
The Indictment says that Sasoneff
and Sikorifsky, after long refusal, con
fessed, the former to the murdor and
the latter as an accomplice. Sasoneff
declared the fighting organization alms
to secure political liberty with the ob
ject of securing social standing' and
tho downfall of the existing regime.
The indictment states that the gov
ernment undertakes to prove the case
as recited by the production of 2$ wit
nesses. It will also place in evidence
publications of the Social Revolution
ary party, photographs of the Hotel
Dunord explosion, a photograph of tho
scene of tho Von Plohve murder, revo
lutionary proclamations subsequently
issued, the proceedings in the trial of
assassin of Minister Slplaguine and
those who attempted to murder Bog
danovltch. The Indictment concludes:
"Sasoneff and Sikorifsky. for having
formed part, in 1904, of a secret society
styling Itself tho fighting organization
of the social revolutionary party, the
avowed object of which was to change
forcibly the existing form of govern
ment of Russia, overthrow the exist
Jng statutes of the Empire, and also
murder persons in office by means of
explosives, the same Sasoneff having-,
on June 20, deprived Von Plehve of.llfe
by throwing an explosive cnirlne filled
with dynamite, from the explosion of
which Von Plehve was killed and tho
lives of others endangered, the coach
man being- killed and injuries being1 In
flicted upon several others but not depriving-
them of life: said Sikorifsky for
having on the same day agreed with
the accused Sasoneff together to bring,
about-the murder of Von Plehve
The indictment is dated NovemUer 15
and signed by the Procurator of the
Court of "Appeals.
