Platform of the Russian Social
iProclamation Issued by Party Out-
Wnes Structure of Democracy and
r ..'Socialism Be Built -on the
r Ruins of Czardom.
MOSCOW, April G. Tho oantrrft com
mittee of the Social Revolutionary party
has drawn up a document containing the
imain points of its programme, and of
this hundreds of thousands of copies are
being printed for circulation in all parts
of European Russia.
The first and main point is the estab
lishment of a democratic republic, on the
ruins of the autocracy, and 'beside the
usual points of Social Democratic doc
trine, it includes many arguments, espe
cially directed to Russian conditions and
designed to appeal to the self-interest of
the Russian proletariat, both agricul
tural and Industrial. It voltes phrases
familiar to the American ear, such'-as
"initiative and referendum," public own
ership of public utilities." etc
The programme Is divided under two
heads, the first the politi-rogal domain
..A- .l.l. If 3n,nnnric tho Institution Of
a democratic republic with broad auton
omy for the provinces, municipalities and
communes; the widest application of the
federal principle to the relations between
the various nationalities; a direct, secret,
universal ballot without distinction as to
sex. nationality or religion; proportional
representation; direct popular legislation
with the initiative and referendum; eleo
tibility, responsibility and removability
of all officials; separation of church and
state; complete freedom of conscience,
speech, the press, assembly and associa
tion; right to strike; compulsory, popular
and gratuitous education, and abolition of
the standing army and substitution of a
national militfe.
Under the second head, national econ
omy domain, the party favors an eight
' hour day, with a reduction for the more
dangerous and unsanitary occupations; a
minimum wage scale; state Insurance for
all, the forms regulated by the insured,
at the expense of the state and em
ployers; regulation of factory construc
tion; prohibition of child labor below lfi
and of female labor at certain occupations
and professional organization of work
men with an Increasing share in the in
ternal management of institutions.
In agrarian policy the party declares
the earth is the common heritage of all
citizens and demands the socialization of
all land or such approach to abolition
of private ownership as Is practicable,
including the sequestration of crown,
church and state lands, turning them over
to the communes, and the limitation and
conversion of rents Into an income tax,
payable to the commune.
In the realm of finance the party fav
ors progressive income and inheritance
taxes inapplicable to small income; the
abolition of Indirect taxes and the pro
tective system excep- as to objects of
It also favors the common ownership
of all utilities, medical assistance gratis.
democratic principles and measures tend
ing to the independence of the working
classes of governmental bureaucracy.
The document closes with a warning to
Individuals against "state Socialism."
which it declares to be a system of half
measures, deluding workers, concentrat
ing industry and commerce in the hands
of the governing bureaucracy, and urges
the summoning of a constituent aasombly,
in which it proposes to conduct the cam
paign for the dissolution of the auto
cratic regime and the transformauon of
the existing order.
M. Witte Started Movement Whic.n
Made Procurator Furious.
ST. PETERSBURG, April 7. (12:45 A.
M.) The Inside history of the movement
for the freedom of the Orthodox church
from the bureaucracy of the Holy Synod
shows that it owes its initiation to Prosl
dont Witte at a meeting of the commit
tee of Ministers during the consideration
of the quostion of tolerance for all faiths,
which was raised by the ukase of Decem
ber 25, 1901. M. TVIttc delivered an elo
quont speech on the necessity of keeping
alive the faith among the Ignorant, poverty-stricken
mujlks, who comprise 12 ,
000.000 of the population of Russia, and
declared that for all the bltternoss and
despair of their lives religion was the only
compensation. Without faith, he said,
the foundation of the whole Russian state
would be destroyed.
Antonlus, the Metropolitan of St.
Petersburg, who was present, .was great
ly inipressed, and discussed with" M.
Witte the deplorable condition of tho
ohurch, and as a result of this discussion
M. Witte drew up a momorial to the
throne in favor of calling an ecclesias
tical council to reform the church admin
istrative system. This document was fol
lowed by a petition in a similar voin.
signed by Metropolitan Antonius and
bishops and priests.
Procurator Pobedonostseff is reported
to have been furious and to have locked
horns with M. Witte. He wrote to Em
peror Nicholas, advising that the whole
question of religious toleration be turned
over to the Holy Synod. Tho venerable
procurator, however, finding that he
could not even command a majority of
the synod for his proposition, and much
loss against convening a church council,
retired from the field beaten. His aide.
Stabler, tried to create the impression
that M. Pobedonostseff himself favored
the .council; but the procurator really
was so "chagrined that he is reported to
have resigned. This, however, is denied.
The Russky Slovo. in giving an account
of M. Pobedonostseffs defeat, says:
. "The dried-up Idol will fall soon or the
ohurch will be paralyzed."

Burning and Looting.
ST. PETERSBURG. April 6. The re
ports of peasant uprisings In the Baltic
provinces especially in Lithuania and

ing. Although Cossack and infantry pat
rols, are scattered through the country,

dering of estates by the larger peasant
"bands. At Werra. where a. regiment of
Cossacks fired on a mob which had com
plete possession of the town, the rioters
were dispersed, bat they broke tip Into
smaller bands, which terrorized the neigh
boring landowners. Similar Incidents have
occurred at other places. The smaller
bands drive off cattle, burn barns and
fodder and help themselves to grain and
Dispatches from dozens of places toll of
pante produced by the depredations of
rovfos: bands of peasants.
The agrarian agitation is regarded
as the' result of Irritation of the peas
ants against tho controlling privileged
classes, the savago character of the
movement being due to the non-civilization
of Russian' village life and the
absence of peaceable means of protest.

periodical suffering-, it does not seem to
be the plan of nature that women
should suffer so severely. Menstrua

have testified in grateful letters to Mrs.
Pinkham that Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound overcomes pain
ful and irregular menstruation.
It provides a safe and sure way of es

weaknesses and diseases.
The two following letters tell so con
vincingly what Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound will do for
women, they cannot fail to bring hope
to thousands of sufferers.
Miss Nellie Holmes of 640 N. Davi
sion Street, Buffalo, N. Y., writes :

no longer suffer as I did before. My periods

mr general health is much Improved. I
advise all women who suffer to take Lydia
