few persons are seen in the streets after
10 o'clock at night.
"The general situation in Odessa has
jnuoh improved, but there Is still a wide-"
upread feeling of nervousness. Those best
knowing the conditions are of the opinion
that the gravest danger now lies in a
possible anti-Jewish rising. The Jews
here number about 17500 to 200,000. and
for a variety of reasons they are deeply
hated in Odessa. The fact that they are
credited with bombthrowing during the
recent disturbance, coupled with the fact
that .the police found large collections of
bombs" In the houses of two prominent and
wealthy Jews, has served to inflame minds
against them, and It would not take much
to start anti-Jewish demonstrations. the
end of which would be most terrible.
The dock strikers were fearfully pun
ished, but it can be said truthfully that
the military were protecting Odessa
against a crazed and infuriated mob" of
incendiaries and pillagers and confronted
by a situation which demanded the most
repressive measures. The stand taken by
the troops last week probably prevented

PANIC 'GROWS IX CAPITAL.
Soldiers Disaffected and "Workmen
of Ports on Strike.
ST. PETERSBURG, July 3,Th
nervousness which pervades all classes
is increasing. The government's policy
in keeping back the facts, bad as tlfey
are, is resulting in people giving- a
willing ear to all the stories that are
.set afloat. Nothing seemingly is t6o
wild to receive ready credence. Many
are convinced that the country is ac
tually in the throes of a revolution.
Although the critical character of
;the situation can hardly be overstated,
and while the danger of a general up
heaval 1s undoubtedly real, there Is no
open muWny of soldiers, and until some
regiments, following- the example of
their comrades of the navy, go over,
the rising has little chance of success.
At the same time there Is enough deep
discontent among many of the soldiers
here to render it doubtful whether
they will stand the test of obeying or
ders to Are on the people in, the streets.
General TrepofTs warning to the
newspapers not to print a word about
the Black. Sea fleet troubles, although
obeyed in St. Petersburg, h.us aroused
Insistent demands for permission to
publish the facts, while some of the
Moscow papers openly defied the Inhi
bition. The revolutionists are working
with feverish activity In spreading the
news broadcast, scattering proclama
tions to the soldiers and summoning
the workmen everywhere to strike and
Join the movement for emancioatlon.
Today the workmen of the Port of
St. Petersburg, following the lead ,of
the Cronstadt workmen, left work, and
commerce is at a standstill, and all the
yards of the Neva are idle. Cronstadt
resembles a city In time of war. The
streets are patrolled by Cossacks, Iri
fantrv and sailors. Some of the guard
regiments have been brought from St.
Petersburg to Krasnoe-Selo, Bnd while
outwardly the city appears calm, no
one knows what to expect from hour
During the afternoon there were
several collision? between the police
ami strikers on the Schusselburg
causeway, and the Cossacks who 'were
summoned, chat Red and dispersed the
workmen with their whips.
It is rumored that the crew of the
battleship Alexander II has mutinied
and sailed away with the vessel, but a
telephone message from Cronstadt
says this is not true.
Vice-Admiral Kxuger's return to Se
vastopol, and his drawing the fires
from under the boilers of his ships and
uncoupling the engines is accepted as
conclusive evidence that not only could
he not rely on his crews to attempt to
coerce the mutineers, but as showing
that the bluejackets are In such a re
bellious spirit that it is feared they

The authorities here are preparing, en

thronged with well-dressed people listen

pletely deserted save for a score of Cos
