Socialists Cause Panic in Poland,

Factories--.Open.-;' Revolt- -Threatened
at TOina.
ST.' PETERSBURG. April 24. The news
from Poland paints a picture of veritable
terror before the expected atorm. A let
ter received here reads:
"You know what -happened at "Warsaw,
but you only know .part of what is occurring-
throughout the country. All Poland
is in a great conflagration of Socialism,
terror of which is everywhere exciting a
terrible panic "y!le expect at Easter a
general massacre of .the Russian govern
ment officials and the -wealthy, and the
blowing up of the Vistula bridge to pre
vent the arrival of troops from Russia.
"The policy are doing nothing. They
pretend to be' blind and deaf to what is
passing on around them. The existing re
gime Is the cause of discontent, which Is
on the Increase among the idle workmen
driven from, the factories and railroads
because they are Poles. They say they
will have vengeance."
A letter from "Vilna says:
"Work Is impossible under the existing
conditions. The government's endless
commissions have accomplished nothing,
and the landlords, workmen and peas
ants are convinced that open revolt and
the bayonet are the only remedies. Easter
may witness the Inauguration of another
insurrection like that of 1863, which be
gan, as this may, with a Russian mas
fiacre." Commenting on the above, the Russ de
clares" the government must act prompt

only thing to be done, it says. Is to sum

that the promised reforms will be real
Drastic Measures by Government to
Stop Peasant Pillagers.
ST. PETERSBURG, April 24. With the
object of stopping the destruction of pri
vate property, which has been going on
in the rural districts under the influ
ence of the loaders of the peasant move
ment, an Imperial decree was issued to
day authorizing the Minister of the In
tenor, M. Boullgan, to appoint commis
sions in the disturbed districts to trace
the culprits, assess the losses and collect
the amount of damage done from the
members of the village communities Im
plicated, whose real and personal prop
erty is liable to be sold at auction for
this purpose.
The decree also orders the granting, of
state loans to landowners not possessing
the means of repairing their losses.
The authorities believe that If the peas
ants arc made to understand that they
must foot the bill it will have the -wholesome
effect of ending the movement.
The moderate constitutional group ot
St. Petersburg, headed by Toll, Bobrln
sky and Korff, are consulting with Ship
ofT and Troubetskoy. of Moscow, and.
there are indications that they will join
the National Progressive movement and
attempt to rally to their support the mod
erate Liberals, who do not believe that
the country is ripe for universal suffrage
or a completely independent parliament.
The Government appears to be giving
countenance to the moderate course, and
it is now julte generally believed that
the promised rescript reforms, which it
was reported would be announced this
week, will follow generally the lines ad
vanced by the Shipoff party, which is an
advisory council based on representation
of the Zemstvos and Doumas extended to
all the provinces and cities of the empire.

Austria to Aid Czar, Who
Has French Sympathy.
CHICAGO, April 24. (Special.) The
Dally News' Vienna correspondent says:
Trustworthy news from Sofia repre
sents that the Bulgarian Cabinet Is
alarmed at the Intentions of Russia rela
tive to the Balkan states. "It Is beyond
question," wires an official of the 'first
rank to the Dally News correspondent
"that the government at St Petersburg
Is maturing plane for an impressive dem
onstration In the Near East. The Czar
bewails Russia's loss of standing In
Europe and reads with pain the com
ments of the Western press, wherein it
is taken for granted that Russia is not
what she once was.
"The Romanoff blood Is up and the
Czar intends to test the quality of Eng
land's opposition to Slav ambitions
touching Constantinople. In plain words,
with the co-operation of Austria-Hungary,
Nicholas means to see if Russia
cannot brush aside every obstacle from
her path to the Mediterranean.
"It is understood that the Czar counts
on French sympathy, inasmuch as a
striking reassertlon of Russian strength
In Europe would tend to rectify that Im
pairment of the European balance of
power which has resulted from Russia's
misfortune, and which is enabling Ger
many to press so hard on France In
Morocco. It is well known that the
Bulgarian cabinet has brought this mat
ter emphatically to the attention of
Austrian statesmen regard Bulgaria s
fears as exaggerated, although complete
candor on this subject Is rarely met. The
refusal of the four guaranteeing powers
to sanction the transfer of Crete's al
legiance from Turkey to -Greece means
that Europe Is not ready to undertake
the solution of the problem ot European
Turkey. Were Crete's national demand
allowed. Bulgaria would immediately so
licit a similar favor and the whole
Balkan question would arise In urgent

Nan Patterson Breaks Down

Deprived of Comfort of Her Father
in Court, She Has to Hear Story
of Crime as Belated hy
Prosecuting' Attorney.
June .4. 1904 Cnesar Touns. book
maker, whlfo riding in a htnm cab
-with Nan Pitt erf on. a chorus girl, was
mysteriously nbot to death with a pis
tol at the corner of West Broadway
and Franklin street. New York, at 8:30
A. M. Nan Patterson was arrwted.
charged with murder, and committed to
the Tomb without bail.
November 15. 1904 Her first trial be
gan before Justice Vernon M.. Davis, in
the Supreme Court. After the trial had
prosres?d for ten days one of the
Jurors was taken III and, on Novem
ber 26, the Jury was dismissed and the
trial postponed.
December 5, 1904 Xan Paterson's
second trial was begun before Justice
Davis in the same court. It' continued
to December 23. frhen the Jury, after
long deliberation, disagreed. It was
said to stand 6 to 6.
April 10. 190jr Xan Patterson was
called for trial for the third time in the
sameaurt. At the request of :he District-Attorney
it was postpone until
J. Morgan Smith and hi wife. Nan
Patterson sister, had been brought
to New York from Cincinnati x wit
nesses. April 11 J. Morgan Smith nd his
wife were charged with conspiracy to
extort money from Young, and commit
ted In bail.
April 17 Nan Patterson's third trial
began before Recorder Goff.
NEW YORK, April 24. The third trial
of Nan Patterson, accused of the murder
I of Caesar Yountr. began In earnest today
before Recorder Goff, in the Court of
General Sessions. Confident and almost
smiling In the previous ordeals, the for
" mer showgirl today was on the verge of
I collapse. She became faint at the close of
the morning session, necessitating a hur-
rled adjournment of the court, but had
i revived considerably when the afternoon
ji session began.
The feature of the day's proceedings was
i the opening address of Assistant District
Attorney Rand. In which he outline what
declared that Young never carried a pis
tol, and that the state would prove that
the revolver that killed Young was bought
by J. Morgan Smith, brother-in-law of
Nan Patterson. Mr. Rand said that he
would prove "by sworn evidence that dur-
Ing the year Young maintained "Nan Patr
terson h .spent 530,000 on her; that Nan
x attcrsort "and the Smiths entered into "a
conspiracy to prevent Young from leaving
this country and to avoid cutting off their
enjoyment ot his money. Young, he con
tended, acted as one marked for slaugh
ter from the tlmo he received the alleged
threatening 'letter In which Julia Smith,
Nan Patterson's sl6ter, wrote to Young:
"Unless you do see Nan, I cannot answer
for the consequences."
The petition filed by counsel for the
Smiths to compel District Attorney
Jerome to give up letters taken from
them when they were arrested in Cincin
nati was denied today by Justice Gaynor
In the New York Supreme Court.
In opening his address, Mr. Rand urged
the jurors to forget all that had been said
and published about previous prosecutions
of the prisoner and to begin with an en
tirely fair and unbiased mind.
Court of Law, Not Chivalry.
"This has been a most sensational
case," he said, "and you are facing a
hard ordeal, particularly on account of
the sex of the defendant "But this is not
a court of chivalry or a court of morals
it Is a court of law."
He warned them that the fact that an
indictment had been returned against the
prisoner must have no weight with them,
and that they must not consider as
against her the prisoner's mode of life.
He concluded, however, that It was a
misconception, to believe that her char
acter had nothing to do with the case.
This, he believed,, would have a most Im
portant bearing as showing a possible
motive for the crime.
That the prosecution has not abandoned
Us contention that the revolver with
which Young was killed was purchased
by J. Morgan Smith was shown during
Mr. Rand's opening argument He chal
lenged the defense to produce letters,
which he said It claimed to have knowl
edge of, that would show that Young
had threatened to commit suicide if he
had to give up Miss Patterson. He de
