FUR! OF TftRTA
Breaks Out Among Rus
UNARMED MEN BEATEN
Strikers Brutally Mutilated at
BONES BROKEN, EYES GOUGED
When Police Grow Weary of Maim
ing Helpless Jews, Soldiers Take
a Hand Girls .Assaulted
ST. PETERSBURG, via Eidtkuhnen,
I'cb. 17. Another ''slaughter of the in
nocents" has been perpetrated by. the
Itusslan police. This time the outrage
occurred in Mohileff, in the government
f Min.sk, and among the victims, most
4V Jews, were sevoral young -women,
who were brutally assaulted, while the
men were kicked, stabbed and beaten.
The massacre took place on "Wednes
day, but until Thursday the efforts of
the authorities to keep it secret were
successful, for the bjood was spilled
in the building where the local police
makes its headquarters. It appears
that a large number of arrests were
made in connection with some minor
strikes which have recently occurred
in Mohileff. "Wednesday orders were
given to arrest the leaders and as
many of tho strikers as could be gath
ered in without attracting too much
attention. To this end the Jewish set
tlements, where most of the workers
live, were invaded and a number of
men and women dragged to the police
station. There was no evidence that
these persons were instrumental in
calling the strike.
Blows Rained Upon Them.
The prisoners were taJcen before the
lieutenant of Police who, looking over
the list of names and noting that most
of these were Jews, turned the strikers
over to the policemen.
Immediately the officers pounocd
upon the unarmed ' strikers and
thrashed them until they grovelled on
the floor. Then they kicked them down
the stairs, where a second party of
policemen took up the task whore their
comrades had left it and rained blows
upon tho 'backs of their victims with
the fiat of their swords.
By this time most of .the workmen
were almost unconscious, "but the tor
ture had Jiot yet been completed. They
were taifen into the courtyard", where
a party of soldiers, which was guard
ing the prison annex, fell upon them,
gouged their eyes out, -broke their
limbs with, blows from their rifle-barrels
and then kicked the injured all
over the yard.
Girls Shamefully Assaulted.
Several girls who had up to that
moment escaped with minor injuries,
were shamefully assaulted by the sol
diers and then flogged. Several of
these girls, it is stated, cannot llvfc,
while others will be cripples for life.
Several of tho men. died in the yard.
Others were kept there, maimed and
bleeding, until the superior officers
realized that their removal had become
an urgent necessity. They were trans
ferred to the prison hospital.
According to rollable reports, there
wre over ,100 men and women in tho
party of prisoners. How many lost
their lives is not known.
MANY CHANGES ARE RUMORED
Sakharoff May Succeed Kuropatkin,
Trepoff May Supplant Bouligan.
ST. PETERSBURG, Feb, 16. Many ru
mors are current of Ministerial and mil
itary changes, including a report that
War Minister Sakharoff may be sent to
relieve General Kuropatkin. and also one
to the effect that M. Bouligan. Minister
of the Interior, is "not In sympathy with
tho situation, and may retire In favor of
General Trepoff, Governor-General of St.
Petersburg. The successor of M. Mura
vieff, former Minister of Justice, ap
pointed Ambassador at Rome, has not yet
been, appointed. Almost anything is like
ly to happen, but nothing definite can be
ascertained. M. Annensky, editor of Rus
sian "Wealth, who was Arrested simul
taneously with Maxim Gorky, the author
and reform leader, was released yester
day. Upon his appearance before a scien
tific society last night he was received
with great enthusiasm.
ALL MAY AGAIN QUIT WORK
St. Petersburg Workmen Weary of
Waiting for Concessions.
ST. PETERSBURG, Feb. 17. The report
is circulated here with great persistence
that a renewal of the general strike will
be declared in St. Peteresburg In the
course of Friday. The only evidence so far
which could bo cited in favor of such
action on the part of, the strike leaders Is
that the unwillingness of the employers
to make concessions pending the govern
mental arbitration discussion has created
great dissatisfaction among the radical
element of workers.
STEP TO GOOD GOVERNMENT
Czar Considers Organization of Cab

ST. PETERSBURG, Feb. 16. The Czar
on Thursday presided over a meeting of
the Imperial Council of Ministers which
discussed at length the plan for the for

which are to be Invested with rights and
privileges similar to those possessed by
the Ministers of other governments. The
discussion of this plan if generaly taken
to foreshadow the organization of a rep

CHARGES AGAINST ANNENSKY
He and Gorky Accused of Sedition
Rumors of Witte's Resignation.
ST. PETERSBURG, Feb. 17 (2 A. M.)
Membership In a secret organization
formed in 1903 to incite strikes and pro
mote revolution is one of the charges
brought against M. Annensky, editor of
Russian Wealth, and also probably in
volving Maxim Gorky and others.
M. Annensky. whose five terms under
arrest have made the interior of the. for
tress of St. Peter and St. Paul thorough
ly familiar to him. told the Associated
Press yesterday that he had also been
required to plead to the charge of form
ulating anti-governmental proclamations,
the penalty for which offense Is banish
ment for lifo to Siberia, but that no proof
was- offered of either charge.
M. Annensky said tho prosecutor showed
him the draft of an address to the people,
alleged to be In the handwriting of Maxim
Gorky, and alterations in another hand,
alleged to be Anncnsky's. Annensky de
clared that he could not Identify the 'doc
ument or the handwriting.
Only four of the original delegation re
main in custody. One of these is tho
workman Kuzin, who for a long time es
caped arrest because his identity could
not -be ascertained by the police.
In the scculslon of Tsarskoc-Sclo tho
struggle over the question of creating the
Zemsky Sobor is being fought out. Intima
tions find their way to the public that
one of the main factors In tho present sit
uation tending to Influence the govern
ment to convene the Zemsky Sobor Is tho
increasing difficulty of mobilizing reserves
to replace troops bound for the front, the
belief being that. If tho Zemsky Sobor
were aseembled, it would arouse a wavo
of patriotism in the country.
The report of M. "Witte's resignation
from the presidency of tho Council of tho
Ministers Is still in circulation, but can
not be confirmed. M. "Witt was busy
last evening with the director of the tax
department as if no change were certain.
It is well known, however, that a cam
paign is being waged against him by men
of influence who fear that his will may
becomo dominant in the prcaent crisis.
It is also asserted that M.vwitte has
incurred enmity on account of "his inter
vention In favor of somo of tho Liberals
who have been arrested. M. "Wltte Is
stcoring a cautious course in order to
avoid entanglements. Undoubtedly he will
be tho man of the hour, if sweeping re
forms must be granted.
ALL FACTORIES CLOSE AT LODZ

LODZ, Feb. 16. The manufacturers, at
a meeting this afternoon, resolved to tele

Lodz, paid off their men today and closed

Some other mills which previously had
closed refused to pay the strikers, who
demanded money claimed J.o be due them.
At one mill wiilch thus refused yester
day the strikers spent the entire night
around the office.

ST. PETERSBURG STRIKERS OUT
Many Factories Idle Because Rioters
Are Kept in Jail.
ST. PETERSBURG, Feb. 16. The em
ployes of the Putiloff Works, appeared at
the works today, but instead of resum
ing their tasks demanded as a condition
of going to work the release of their com
rades who are under arrest. Similar ac
tion was taken by the men of the Neva
Works. Upon other grounds the work
men again went out at the Franco-Russian
Works, the Russo-Americad Rubber
Works, the SL Petersburg Car Works
and the Nicholas Railroad shops.
Considerable mystery surrounds the re
crudescence of the strike movement, it
being rumored that Father Gopon is again
directing operations through his lieuten
ants. ASQ. TEETH'S MOTION EEJECTED
House of Commons Refuses to Hasten
Election on Fiscal Issue.
LONDON'. Feb. 16. H. H. Asqulth's
amendment to the reply to the speech
from the throne was defeated in the
House of Commons tonight by a vote of
311 to 248. This amendment, which de
clared "that the various aspects of the
fiscal Question have been fully discussed
in the country for nearly two years, and
that the time has come for submitting the
question to tho peopte without further
delay," was debated throughout todays
No particular Interest was aroused un
til within an hour of the time for the
division, when Sir Henry Campbcll-Ban-nerman
spoke at some length, attacking
Premier Balfour and charging that he
was afraid to face tho country with a
definite statement of hist position with
regard to Mr. Chamberlain's programme.
Mr. Balfour replied, but did not afford
the opposition the satisfaction of any
lengthy explanation of his opinion of Mr.
Chamberlain's policy. He said that dis
cussion, if prolonged, might possibly dis
pel some fallacies concerning his views,
and certainly discussion of the govern
ment's right to negotiate is already hav
ing an effect on the. attitude of other na
tions. Joseph Chamberlain, the former Colo
nial Secretary, had a full house when he
arose to speak. A dissolution of Parlia
ment had no terrors for him, he said. He
was quite content to trust his political
fortunes to the workingmen. In his opin
ion, the sooner a dissolution came the
better. Mr. Chamberlain declared" the op
position's contentions In regard to a dis
solution wore a pretense.
He concluded by expressing his belief
that a colonial conference would be held,
and that the colonies would have a great
deal to offer. He did not pretend that
Great Britain should make concessions
without reciprocal treatment, and he did
not believe that tbe British people would
reject the offers of their kinsmen nor
lose a great opportunity, which. If not
seized, might never recur.
During the last hours of the debate
the galleries were crowded, and as divis
ion time approached the Interest in
creased, as this was regarded as a su
preme test of the government's strength
and a standard by which could be meas
ured the probable duration t the present
WITTE DIFFERS WITH LIBERALS
Rumors of His Resignation Are Rife
in St. Petersburg.
ST. PETERSBURG. Feb. 16 (7:45 P.
M.) M. Witte, according to the latest
report, has resigned his position as
president of the committee of Ministers
on account of differences with Minis
ter of Agriculture Termoloff over the
conduct of the proceedings of that
body. M. Yermoloff is probably the most
liberal of Emperor Nicholas Ministers,
enjoying now, according to the story,
the complete favor of the Emperor. He
openly advocates summoning a Zemsky
Sobor. The report Is not, confirmable
at this hour, but receives credence In
some usually well-informed quarters.

CHICAGO. Feb. 16. (Special.) Crowds
of curious spectators invaded the visitors'
galleries of tho Board of Trade today to
see John TV. Gates, of financial fame, in
his great feat of skinning the Vears in
the wheat market. Mr. G-des was not
personally present, having left Chicago
Tuesday for a balmier. clime, but tho vis
itors on 'change did not lost the expect
ed show, Mr. Gates having delegated to
an army of trusty brokers the skinning
process referred to.
"Wheat for delivery next May has been
bought by the millionaire speculator to
the extent of 20,000.000 bushels, or, accord
ing to some accounts, 30,000,00) bushels;
and as nothing but the best goes on such
contracts on the Board of Trade, and as
last year's crop was of very poor quality,
those who sold the wheat aro at their
wits end whero to get the grain, and
were today becoming alarmed at the
prospect of having to buy it back from
the person to whom they had sold it, and
asking him to name his own price for
what he wanted.
He gave them a chance early In the
session to got 3.000,000 bushels or so at
about tt.20'ya. He even tempted some oth
ers by the liberality of his offerings to
sell some more of the stuff they did not
have, and the prico got down to $1.134.
Later In the day, just ns the crowd in
the wheat pit commenced to think Mr.
Gates was going to let the price down
another cent or two a bushel, his brokers
went In and bought a million or two, and
up went the price to $1.21.
Last August wheat for May delivery
was hard to soil at between 0 cents and
S3 cents a bushel; the same wheat today
brought $1.21. If Mr. Gates had bought
only 1,000,000 bushels at the lowest and
sold It at the highest price today he
would have cleared $410,000. He probably
did not buy any at the bottom; but even
supposing he did not begin below $1. his
Immense winnings on the quantity he
owns surpass the wildest dreams of
wealth of the ordinary Individual.
In the last few minutes of the session
the previous highest price of the day for
May wheat was exceeded. Those who
had sold it short became alarmed at the
firmness being displayed by the market,
and in trying to buy back their previous
ly sold grain ran tho price up to $L21Vt.
and the market closed within one-eighth
of a cent of those figures, and at a net
gain of 1 cents a bushel since yester
day. CANAL COMMISSION OR NOT?
House and Senate Disagree as to Its
WASHINGTON, Feb. 1C. A differ
ence qf opinion ha3 developed between
the Senate and House on tho abolition
of the iBthmlan Canal Commission. The
House today passed the Mann bill,
which abolishes the . commission, unless
the President desires to retain It or
any of Its members in a consultative
capacity. Senator KIttredge reported
from the Senate committee on Inter
oceanlc canals a new bill which con
tinues the commission and differs In
other respects from the Mann bill.
The Mann bill gives all the right of
government of the Canal Zone to the
President until the end of the next
Congress, but provides that toe gov
ernment shall be so exercised as to pro
tect the Inhabitants In the free en
joyment of their liberty, prosperity
and religion. It abolishes the Isthmian
Cana Commission and places the work
of the construction of the canal In the
hands of the President and suon per
sons as he may appoint and employ. It
does not undertake to determine
whether the canal shall be constructed
as a sea-level or lock-level waterway.
Annual Appropriations to Be Made.
It Is also provided that the persons-
appointed by the President, both In the
government of the Canal Zone and In
charge of the work of construction,
shall make estimates In detail as far
as possible of the Items needed for
the ensuing fiscal year, and says that
after June. 190G, no money shall be ex
pended on the canal or Canal Zone
government except In accordance with
appropriations hereafter made, thus
doing away with the lump sum appro
priation carried by existing law. Fre
quent reports to the President and to
Congress of the progress of the con
struction as well as of the expendi
tures of monev are required.
While the bill abolisnes the Canal
Commission so far as the law Is con
cerned, it authorizes the President to
retain th commission as a commission
or its individual members as consult
ing engineers. If he shall so desire.

the railroad is acquired, to operate it

In order . that tbe road may be used as

struction work on the canal.
Senate Bill Retains Commission.
Senator Klttredge's bill, which was
prepared by Instructions of the Inter
oceanlc canal omittee, was reported
today to the Sena'e. The committee has
been sitting for several weeks; having
before It the Mann bill as originally ns- :
ported In the House and the amend
ments reported February L Tne Mann
bill provided specifically for the repeal
of that part of the canal act authoriz
ing the appointment of the commis
sion ar.d fixing itr duties and powers.
Thi3 section Is eliminated In the Sen
ate bill, and the entire question Is cov
ered In the first section, which extends
the present canal act.
The KIttredge bill follows out prac
tically all the remaining provisions of
the Mann bill, but provides also a num
ber of new features. One Important
change Is In the section which extends
the authority now enjoyed by the Pres
ident for the control of the Canal Zone.
The Senate bill extends this authority
until the end of tho next regular ses
sion of Congress, while the Mann bill
provIJes for an extension until the. end
of the next Congress."" Another new
feature of the Senate bill Is ob follows:
All income at any time received by the
United States from rentals, dividends or other
wise In respect of any property now possessed
or hereafter acquired In connection with the
canal or railroad works shall be turned Into
and credited to the fund for the construction of
eald canal and works.
Two new sections are added as fol
lows: That all laws affecting imports of goods,
wares and merchandise and entry of persons
Into tho United States from foreign countries
shall apply to article.', good, wares and
merchandise and persona coming from the
Canal Zone. Isthmus of Panama, and seeking
entry Into any state or territory of the United
States or the District of Columbia.
The other provides for the deposit of
not to exceed $1,500,000 with a bank
having a fiscal ngent on the Isthmus of
Panama in order that there may be a
sufficient supply of money to meet the
necessities of the government.
The House today passed a bill mak
ing appllcablo to tbe Panama Canal
Zone all laws affecting Imports and the

HORROR IN SUBMARINE BOAT
Explosion of Gasoline Slays or Maims
Crew and Rescuers.
QUBEXSTOWX. Feb. 16. Four men
were killed and 1 injured, of whom
three are in a critical condition, as the
result of two explosions on board the
British submarine boat A-3 In the har
The killed include Engineer Artificer
Chaffee, a leading stoker, and Lieutenant
H. G. Good, commander ofi the vessel,
was blinded. His condition. Is critical.
Lieutenant Skinner, an officer of the
submarine boat, subsequently died of his
Injuries. Only one man of the entire crew
The first explosion is believed to have
occurred while the crew was engaged In
tilling the gasoline tank preoaratory to"
proceeding outside the harbor. The A-5
caught fire after the first explosion. When
this explosion occurred a number of the
crew of the torpedo gunboat Hazard vol
unteered to go to the re3cue of the sub
marine boat's crow, but hardly had they
got on board the A-5 when a second ex
plosion took place and all the rescuers
were more or less Injured.
The. submarine boat was afterward
docked, and an official statement made
this evening saying the vessel has not
suffered much damage. An Inquiry Into
the cause of the" explosions will be lield,
Tho A-5 was a new boat and only left
her builders on Saturday. After exten
sive and satisfactory trials, she was or
dered to Queenstown for the- purpose of
familiarizing military officers with tha
appearance of p. submarine boat. Sixty
army officers were present to witness the
diving experiment which led to such a
tragic result. Tho crew, was entirely vol
unteers. The explosion, which was of the
violenco of a big gun and was heard 10
miles away, shook the submarine's con
voy, the Hazard, from stem to stern.
Dense volumes of smoke were seen imme
diately pouring from the only outlet or
the helpless submarine.
The rescuers report that it was only by
superhuman efforts that they were able
to force their way throueh the stifling
fumes. They were repeatedly driven back,
and when they finally reached the lower
part of the boat they encountered a ter
rible spectacle. Of the wounded and dy
ing crew only one was able to speak co
herently, and he was begging to be saved.
The rescuers were forcing up the second
manhole forward when the second ex
plosion occurred, blowing one of them
20 feet upwards. He fell in the water and
was rescued. others were slightly
