BLOODSHED IN WARSAW
Strikers Shot Down by Troops
in. Polish Capital,
COTTON CENTER ON A STRIKE
Liberal Leader Admits Skill of Gov
ernment In Quieting Workmen,
but Predicts Bomb-Throwing
, and Revolt of Peasants.
Kvery indication seems to point to the
disintegration of the strike movement
in Russia. Several largo factories In
St. Petersburg reopened yesterday, and
a ceneral resumption of work on Mon
day Is probable.
General Kuropatkln'a report of the
success of his latest forward, movement
ms to have acquired In St. Peters
burg the added importance of being a
check to a Japanese advance. It Is
probable that thin has had tome effect
toward quieting the uneasy populace of
the Rustan capital, but In any case
the workmen seem to have been con
verted to the idea that their surest
reliance for remedy of their grievances
is In the government.
At "Warsaw yesterday there was a
bcrlous collision between workmen and
soldiers, official reports giving the cas
uallties as two killed and seven wound
ed. Th; strike at Llbau continues, and
there has been no material chance in
the situation at Moscow, Saratoff and
Lodz.
There are grave fears of troubles at
Ivanovo Vozcnsensk, the foremost cot
ton goods manufacturing town in the
Russian Empire.
Predictions are made that the ending
of the fitrike will result in increased ac
tivity on the part of the revolutionists.
ST. PETERSBURG. Jan. 27. The au
thorities are receiving the news from the
front with great satisfaction, being con
vinced that It will serve at least partly
to distract attention from the strike and
Internal affairs generally.
At the same time the strike situation
generally is improving. In St. Peters
burg there is no longer any doubt that
the -strike is broken. Fourteen establish
ments, including the Franco-Russian,
Aboukoff, Baltic, Russo-Amerlcan Rubber
Company, and the Ropes American Re
finery already have resumed and an en
tire starting up of factories seems to be
ossured for next Monday.
The men who are returning to work are
not asking conditions of the employers.
They have seemingly turned their backs
on political agitators and accepted the
government's promises in the matter of
shorter hours and an equitable adjust
ment of their grievances at their face
value.
That the government' purposes to com
pel the masters to settle upon the gov
ernment's terms Is plainly evidenced by
Finance Minister Kokox'soffs response
yesterday to a deputation of masters, to
whom he announced the government's de
cision, after an impartial Investigation of
both sides of the controversy, to carry
cut the letter and spirit of the proclama
tion of January 25. To the masters this
means that they will have to foot the
bills.
Conciliating the Workmen.
One of the best posted and most famous
of Russian Liberals said to the Associ
ated Press last night:
"While the events of last Sunday have
given enormous Impetus throughout Rus
Eia to all movements against the existing
order of things. It is truly marvelous with
what skill and adroitness the govern
ment seems to be turning the situation
to Its own account with the very men who
have suffered and who less than a week
ago would have been in open revolt had
they been able to procure arms.
"The government's proclamation ap
pealed to the workmen always to look to
the government for redress of grievances,
reinforcing this proclamation with quiet
missionary work with such agencies as
the government knows so well how to em
ploy to convince them that the bloodshed
and misery brought down upon them on
Sunday was the result of listening to
etudent agitators and revolutionaries and
the government's 111-wlshcre generajy;
end the government's plan has evidently
been successful with the vast majority.
"Outside of Father Gopon's organisa
tion of a few thousand, the workmen
knew little and cared less for political
aspirations. Their sole idea was to im
prove the miserable lot of themselves and
families; but their imaginations were
etlrred by the orator's idea of an ap
peal direct to the Emperor, and they
joined the movement with enthusiasm.
"While the events of the last few days
have left many of them forever in the
ranks of the Socialists and revolution
aries, the vast bulk are going back to
work embittered against the programme
of the agitators, which seemingly brought
Sthem sorrow and misfortune."
Peasants Will Revolt Next.
Speaking generally of the situation, this
man said:
"Strikes will sweep over Russia like a
wave, but there will -be no revolution: the
conditions are not yet ripe. It Is only a
Epasm, a convulsion of greater or less
duration In different places, accompanied
by disorders and perhaps by bloodshed.
It will subside, temporarily at least, and
reappear again in some other form, now
In the cities and aext in the broad agri
cultural country.
"A movement of which I have received
information and which is agrarian In
character already is afoot In the province
of Kiev. I expect its extension in the
Spring throughout Central Russia. It is
& protest of Ignorant peasants against a
miserable existence, and is directed blind
ly against the landlords, some of whom
are striving earnestly to help them. It Is
similar to the movement In the provinces
of Poltava and Kharkoff three years ago.
when the peasants attacked thmdlords,
burned their property and robbed and
often killed them, and possibly It may
create a similar reign ol terror In coun-
try regions.
"The government' embarrassment will
go on and the autocracy will fight inch
by inch, hut it will be forced to give way, i
as it has done here whenever too hard
pressed, until finally the contest will end
In the granting of a. constitution or a
revolution will overtake it."
"What of the Immediate future?" was
asked.
"Bombs," was the reply. "The terror
ists will begin to take vengeance."
Most Russian newspapers which will
appear today have decided. Inasmuch as
they will not be permitted to publish full
and uncensored accounts of the events of
the last few days, to print only the official
statement. It Is said that the authorities
say the censorship will be removed as
soon as the situation again becomes nor
mal. Gopon Will Throw Off Mask.
A Russian journalist says that Father
Gopon told him Saturday night that the
time had come when he could take off the
mask and declare himself a Socialist. He
said he knew the Emperor would not be
at the "Winter Palace on Sunday to meet
the workmen, and that he knew the
troops would fire, although he had
preached the contrary at he workmen's
meetings. The object. Father Gopon Is
reported to have said, was to open the
eyes of the workmen and turn them Into
revolutionists.
Father Gopon's whereabouts are not
definitely established, although he Is said
to be In the Shafousofsky Hospital,
wounded.
CONFLICT IN BALTIC CITIES.
Strikers Fight Police and Soldiers In
New Strike Centers.
SPECIAL. CABLE.
KIEFF. Jan. 28. Under the outward
calm which has settled upon the strike
situation in Kieff, a political agitation of
most determined character Is progressing.
The belief is general that the danger of
a general strike, .coupled with political
demonstrations of a. desperate character,
is by no means over. Several factories
have been enabled to resume work after
one day's suspension and similar In
stances are reported from other cities.
Among these are Vllna, Kovno, Riga,
Reval: Llbau and Saratoff, where official
reports state that workmen have begun
to realize that they have been victimized
by political agitators. The workmen in
these cities, reports state, do not regret
having manifested their sympathy with
the SL Petersburg strikers, but are now
getting ready to take up their dally tasks.
A general strike still prevails at Llbau
and Riga, but according to official ad
vices, both are weakening.
At Llbau occurred a conflict in the
course of which a Sergent and several
gens d' armes were shot and seriously
wounded. A small squad of guards
came across a body of strikers engaged
in destroying telegraph wires. In the
fight that followed the workmen used re
volvers, but were driven back.
A large number of arrests have been
made at Riga. There the agitators were
inciting the strikers to use firearms. Sev
eral shots were fired at the police and
thereupon it was decided as the safest
way to arrest all known leaders of the
revolutionary element.
PLANS FOR CONCILIATION.
While Czar Discusses Them, Strike
Grows Worse at Warsaw.
ST. PETERSBURG. Jan. 2S. (3 A. M.)
A special council was held at Tsarskoe
Selo, at which, it Is reported, various con
ciliatory measures were decided on, but
no details have yet transpired.
. Emperor Nicholas gave a. luncheon yes
terday at Tsarskoe-Selo in honor of the
birthday of Emperor William of Germany.
The strike continues at Saratoff, Khar
koff and Lodz. No papers have appeared
in any tf these cities. At Warsaw the
situation appears to be growing worse.
The strike is rapidly spreading, shops
have been closed, there are no newspa
pers and telephone service has been
stopped.
BAD SITUATION IN WARSAW.

The correspondent adds that the general

CANNOT STAMP OUT FIRE.
Gorky's Reply to Message of Sympa
thy From French Authors'.
PARIS, Jan. 2S. Tho Society of French
Authors has received a telegram from
Maxim Gorky, the Russian author. In re
sponse to its dispatch expressing sym
pathy over his arrest. After thanking the
authors for their kind words, Gorky says:
"The Arcs now lit will never again be
stamped out."
Duplicates of the society's telegram to
Gorky have been sent to the Czar and
Governor-General Trepoff.
TREPOFF A PEACEMAKER.
Official Announcement Explains Pur
pose of His Appointment.
ST. PETERSBURG. Jan. 27. A semi
official announcement Issued today says:
"The expressions In the foreign news
papers of lack of confidence regarding the
appointment of Governor-General Trepoff
as a measure calculated to improve the
situation, has created astonishment In of
ficial circles In St. Petersburg and on the
Bourse. The Impression In St. Peters
burg regarding the measure Is quite dif
ferent, and It Is manifested In a marked
Increase of confidence , Recent events
have shown that the people are unable to
avert cr direct a strike movement.
"Under tho existing clrcumsUaeae. a.
person invested with extraordinary pow
ers can alone re-establish order, which is
ibe first indispensable condition for the
introduction of reforms. The Governor-
General's course since his appointment
proves that be was not appointed with the
view of repressive measures nor the es
tablishment of order by harsh means,
but by satisfying the just demands of the
population."
WILL GIVE CONSTITUTION.
Prediction of Russian Official Who
Tells of Frustrated Plot.
SPECIAL CABLE.
LONDON, Jan. 2S, The proclamation of
a Russian constitution Is foreshadowed
and the frustration of a plot against the
Czar's life revealed in an interview with
a high official of the Russian Ministry
of the Interior cabled to the London
Dally Mail by Its St, Petersburg corre
spondent. "Numerous arrests and subsequent ex
aminations," said the informant of the
Mail's correspondent, "have brought to
light the fact that the revolt was care
fully but unskillfully organized by a revo
lutionary committee. The uprising is now
suppressed.
"The government does not desire to
adopt measures of too great severity and
the government also realizes the fact that
a. constitution can no longer be with
held and that the participation of the
people in the country's affairs will have
to be permitted before very long. The
number of arrests of men of education
and culture was less than a hundred.
Many of these have already been released,
as the accusations against them have
been found groundless.
"The most Important arrest Is that of a
man giving his name as Vacinity Izcor-
ezk. The police have good reason to be
lieve that this name is fictitious, and ef
forts are being made to establish the
man's Identity. In his possession were
found two false passports and a letter
written in his own blood and addressed
to the terrorist committee of the Rus
sian anarchists' organization. In the let-
tor the writer says that he is ready to
take the step, resolved upon. He bids
farewell to his brethren and thanks them
for the distinction conferred upon him.
All political murderers, including Von
PIchve's assassin, wrote similar letters
before shedding tho blood of their vic
tims. It Is easy to guess against whom
this latest attempt was directed."
MOSCOW SETTLING DOWN.
Alarm Now Turns to Great Cotton
Manufacturing Town on Strike.
MOSCOW, Jan. 27. The day passed off
quietly. It Is now almost certain that
the strike in Moscow and vicinity will
wear Itself out within a few days. The
printers returned to work this afternoon
and two more factories south of the river
have reopened, but it is suspected that
the men arc trying to evade the order
that thev should not be nald unlos thiv
resumed work, and that after receiving
their wages tomorrow they may again
strike. The manufacturers therefore
will not be reassured until Sunday has
gone by. but they remain confident f
the ability of the authorities tn nut iliiTi-n
disturbances. This confidence, combined
with the anouncement that the Minister
oi .Finance is studying the statement of
the men's irrlevanccs. cxnlains tho deri
sion of the manufacturers' meeting not
to maice collective concessions.
The Douma, in extraordinary session
this evening, decided to take precaution
ary measures to safeguard the watnr
gas and electric works in the event of
rioting and also appointed a special com
mittee to Investigate the causes of the

MONEY FOR ASSASSINATION.
Collection Taken at Polish Meeting
for Patriot Woman.
CHICAGO. Jan. 27. "Such assassina
tions as that of Von Plenve cost money,,
and the Russian patriots lack the funds
to carry on this work." said Bronlsllv
Slavinsky, editor of the Polish Rabot-!
nick, a socialist paper, at a banquet for
Mme. Breshkovskl. the Russian exile, at
the Lessing clubhouse, last night.
"Mme. Breshkovskl has been a. cham
pion of the Russian masses for more than
20 years, many of which she spent In
prison," Mr. Slavinsky continued, "and
she expects to see reform accomplished,
or to fall In the struggle. The present
revolution had its origin In a peaceful
movement which the government of Rus
sia would not permit to continue. There
Is an old Russian legend which says that
'From the bones of those who perish an
avenger will arise. But we lack funds
to carry on the work, and appeal to all
llberty-lovlng persons to contribute as
liberally as they can."
After Mr. Slavlnsky's address a peti
tion was circulated and a considerable
sum of money raised for Mme. Breshkov
skl, who also made an addr.ess, saving
she was about to return to Russia, where
her presence was needed. She said that
when she started for this country she
thought revolution and political reform to
be far in the future. "Now I think re
form will come soon." she added.

claring that the demands of the work
men will be examined and satisfied with

ments without delay and are threatened
with arrest if they attempt to incite a
spread of the strike.
The master printers and newspaper pro
prietors, at a meeting Just held, resolved
to act unitedly and not to Increase the pay
of the compositors.
The Chief of Police. Roudacff, has posted
a proclamation pointing out that the gov
ernment action will be a reduction of the
hours of labor, etc.. declaring that the
preservation of order Is Indispensable and
urging the workmen to return to work.
Although this is payday, the employers,
at the request of the authorities, have
posted notices at the closed factories that
the men will not be paid until work Is re
sumed, tlte fear being that If they are
paid while Idle they will Indulge in vodka
and precipitate trouble.
Troops are still posted at various points
In the city, but so far as possible they are
kept out of sight In order to avoid Irri
tating the workmen.

Till Country Is Quiet.

drawal of the French portion of the new
Russian loan has been circulated on the

unable to secure a confirmation or denial
of the report. Inquiry athe banks tends
to confirm the report. A representative
of one of the banks making up the pros--pective
subscribers said he bad been in
formed that the loan would go over until
April, as the recent Incidents at St- Pe
tersburg made the present time inaus
picious to ask for subscriptions.
M. Hottlngucr. head of the syndicate
taking the last loan, said:
"The negotiations for the new loan
were never seriously begun. Therefore,
It Is incorrect to say they have been with
drawn or abandoned."

HOCH FLEEING THE COUNTRY
Has Bought Ticket for Hamburg, and
Police Watch for Him.
CHICAGO. Jan. 27. Police Inspector
Snippy, who left Chicago Wednesday,
night on a secret mission connected
with the Hoch case, is believed to be
watchlne for Hoch either In New York.
Boston or Philadelphia.
Inspector Shippy. it is declared, re
ceived information on Wednesday aft
ernoon that a man answering the de
scription of Hoch had engaged passage
from a Chicago agent of a German
steamship line which runs to Ham
burg. He at once left for the place
from which he believed Hoch would
embark.
A picture of Hoch was identified by
the steamship agent as that of a man
who had engaged passage to Hamburg,
but under another name. It Is believed
that Inspector Shippy is watching for
Hoch In Boston.

CHICAGO. Jan. 27. The man whom peo
ple of half a dozen small towns near Ar-1,

was arrested today at Burkett, Ind., and
taken to Argos. He said he was Adolph
Stclnbaum and had never heard of Hoch.
The prisoner, it is said, does not resem
ble Hoch.
The police are working upon the theory
that Hoch is being kept in hiding by
some of the women with whom he has
been associated. Hls past is being traced
In a search for some woman who might
be Interested In shielding him. Police In
epector Shippy Is said to have trailed
Hoch to some small town not far from

cused. "In his confessions he mentioned some
one with a name like that," the detecUve
said today, "but that was a- myth. Holmes
always worked alone, and in all our
search we never found even the slightest
Intimation that he had an accomplice.
Holmes trusted no one but himself. Be

BOTH SIDES TO BLAME.
Labor Commissioner Wright's Opin
ion of Colorado Troubles.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 27. President
Roosevelt sent to the Senate today the
report of Carroll D. Wright. Commis
sioner of Labor, on the strike trouble in
Colorado. The report is voluminous and
gives an entire history of labor troubles
in that state, together with all the cor
respondence that has passed among the
President with the Department of Jus
tice, the Department of Commerce and
Labor, and Governor Peabody. of Colo
rado; also partial reports made by Com
missioner Wright and pamphlets by va
rious parties connected with the strike.
Commissioner Wright says there can be
no doubt that the cause of the strike
was the effort to establish the Western
Federation of Miners in the smelters, in
cluding reduction and refining mills, as
it already had been established in the
mines. In summing up the situation, the
Commissioner says:
Lawlessness has accompanied the strike aa.
labor weapon, and It has accompanied the
actions of the alleged law and order element
as a weapon against the strikers.
The faults In the organization of the union
by allowing etrlkes to be determined by a
cmroUtee Instead of a referendum, and the
faults In the organisation of the Citizens' Al
liance by allowing irresponsible mobs to rep
resent It, have disturbed the peace of the
counties In Colorado in which the conflict has
been waged to such an extent that people out
side of Colorado wonder If there Is any law
or any law-abiding citizens In that state. It
Is a fact, however, that order Is being restored.
The Commissioner say3 the Injunction
granted recently by the United States
Court to prevent Interference with the re
turn of the deported miners may bring up
the whole question of the right to deport
or whether deportation is a crime under
state or Federal laws.
