ODESSA. July 11. (Special.) The trial
before the local magistrates of the per
sons arrested for participating in the re

eight others were sentenced to serve
Feven weeks in prison, this to Include the
fortnight already spent in the prison here.
This action has greatly displeased the
military authorities, who had counted on
severe sentences in every case. However,
the magistrates are close to the people
and were evidently afraid of popular ven
geance. The populace is greatly pleased
-with the action of the magistrates and
demonstrations are being arranged.

The police have made many arrests.

This Intelligence, associated with the

Trepoff, the Assistant Minister of the

The Terrorists have recently renewed
their warnings against General Trepoff.
w?th ominous persistence. The General Is
constantly in receipt of letters signed by
the executive committee of the fighting
organization informing him that his hour
has come. A remarkable feature of all
the communications Is that the writers
take pains to say that no safeguards will
avail to avert his impending doom. At
the same time they tell him he need not
be afraid to go abroad in the streets
"Your sentence will be executed in your
own room, lou will die in your bed."
The Terrorists seem to take pride In
issuing a challenge Involving a demon
stratlon of their power and resources to
penetrate the armor of the police.
Moreover. General Trepoff knows
enoungh of the desperation of the or
ganization to firmly believe that the Ter
rorists are able to execute their threat.
He makes no concealment of the fact
that he expects to be killed, but his nerve
Is unshaken. "I will at least die at the
post of duty," he said.
Privately. General Tre.Doff takes r
gloomy view of the future of the autoc

is confident that. If given untrammeled

ST. PETERSBURG. July 13. Official ad
vices received by the Minister of the In

of Moscow, has been identified as a former
schoolteacher of St. Petersburg named
.Hullkovsky, who Is actively connected
with the political agitation, and is be

organization. He was first arrested un
dcr the administration of the late In
terior Minister Slpiaguine In 1901. and
three years later was exiled to Siberia for
.six years by the late Interior Minister
Ton Plehve, but escaped In 1KH and was
supposed to have been abroad.
Kullkovsky was next discovered at Mos

government buildings, presumably intent
on committing a political crime. He was
arrested and taken to a police station
from which he escaped. Upon his escape

Will Not Announce Remedy Till Peo
ple Have "Unloaded Stocks and
Bonds on System To Sue
ST. PAUL. July 13. "I have no po
litical ambitions: I could not accept po
litical office, wore it tendered, me. I
have work cut out. which, even if I
devote IS hours per day to It, will last
me until I am over 90 year old too
old to think of political honors."
So said Thomas W. Lawson, In an ad
dress to a large audience at the Peo
ple's Church in this city tonight.
Mr. Lawson did not deliver a set
speech; he talked Informally in a con
versational tone, devoting: his time to
answering a series of questions pro
pounded to him by a local newspaper.
He declared that, should his so-called
remedy be pijt into effect, there would
be no political revolution; the various
parties would go on battling- for their
principles as heretofore. But a great J
nnanclal revolution there would be;
there would be no more stock Inflation:
the money stolen from the people by
the "system" wouKl be returned to the
pcoplo and. because railroads and In
dustrial corporations would have only
to earn a fair percentage on the true
value of inelr Investments, the cost of
living would be reduced and wage
earners would be able to enjoy greater
luxuries and to lay by a greater portion
of their earnings.
Not Ready to Announce Remedy.
As to when he would propound this
remedy, he said that It would bo fool
ish to make it known until the peo
ple were ready for it; otherwise the
"system" would find means to render
It noneffective. The people must first
get rid of their stocks and bonds, sell
them ' to the "system" at the present
Inflated prices, and then, when the
"system" was forced to let them go. the
people should buy them back cheaply
and forever keep the control in their
own. hands. When this had been ac
complished, his remedy, which he .de
clared to be a simple, business propo
sition, could bo put Into force, an.I
there would never again be Inflation of
Wall Street a Trick Machine.
As to whether or not his plan was a
dangerous one, he replied that It was;
that It was dangerous "for the other
fellow." A panic might ensue. In fact
I he hoped and believed a panic, would
ensue, but not until the people nad sold ;
their stocks to the "system." j
"My friends." said Mr. Lawson, "Wall ,
street Is nothing but a machine a
trick machine. Ex-cry year financiers
.run the American people through that
machInefrom one end to the other and,
as they pass through, the money In
their pockets falls Into the "sys-
I tern's" bucket. What I propose to you
is simply to reverse the operation; run
the "system" through the other way.
and In that manner separate them from
their ill-gotten gains and return their I
stolen millions to their rightful own
ers the American people."

The Right of Private Property.
MARSHFIBLD. Or.. July 10. To the Kdl-
tor.) In The Orrgonlan of July 6. In speak
ing of the "change yet to come." you say:
The abfwlutc rights of man are thrco: The
right of jMTfonal liberty, the right of per
uana! security, the right of private properly."
I would suggest an amendment to the lait
proposition po It would read thus: The right
of private property sufficient for all personal
needs. And I would add a fourth proposi
tion, wh'lch would be. the right of opportunity.
The right of private property, without limit.
has always been and 1b now the direct source
of nine-tenths of the wronw done by one
portion of humanity to another. Tho slave
wan private property until the law declared
otherwise. Private property held by one per
ron where the welfare of thousand) of others
are Involved In it will have to become more
of a partnership matter than It la now bo
fore any solution can be found.
It is acknowledged that there is an abun
dance for all the needs of humanity were
they rightly distributed: and the trouble be
gins when private property claims go beyond
the needs of the person .making the claims.
Some one else. In that Instance, has to fall
ehort to balance the ' matter. There is no
legislation which can be devlwed, under our
present system, that will In a satisfactory
manner adjust the matter.
In the state, wejill hoM a partnership claim;
in the public highways and in our law courts,
where the jplrH of the law is carried out.
we all have an equal show for protection.
In fact, we profets to be partners in those
affairs so that no one can claim any soeclal
advantage. But in the claims of private prop
erty tbere is a fight to the nnlsh. and the
vanquished Is expected to get off the earth,
or comply with the conditions imposed by the
victor. There is no partnership claim there
that can be brought In that will be considered
worthy of any rcipect. Ml brotherly feelings
ceatc where the claims of private property has
its stakes tU "The right of private prop
erty" has been a source of conflict In all the
ages past that history Rives any record of;
and until Its wings are clipped down to the
limits of the ncds of the person. It will
continue lta conflict in the future. It must
come down, and the right of opportunity fo;
the individual mutt go up; then with a well
devle4 plan of partnership that will give to
each person the full worth of his honest ex
ertlon, and nothing more, then will something
like a solution be found to the question that
has vexed humanity so long.
Under our present conditions the opportunity
to become a millionaire means the clipping
of opportunity away from a thousand other
persons; and it would be an impossibility to
be a millionaire without the thousand handi
capped persons as a foundation for thai mil
lion to rest upon. The person holding the
million may have worked very hard, but yet.
the main portion of his million rests upon
the hard work of the others. The millionaire,
no doubt, feels satisfied, but the others feel
that there has been something wrong In the
deal. The millionaire will fall back upon the
right of private pro pert, while the others
will bring up the privilege of opportunity and
claim the right to hve an honet share.
"Wherever humanity has gone Into partner
ship, from Government to a. school district. It
has been a succem; and with the careful en
largement of partnership and expanding it
as fast as the people can grasp the advan
tage, must come the redemption of humanity
from the grasp of Mammon.
