CITY IS IN REVOLT
Students Barricade University
GET TERMS OF SURRENDER
Governor Negotiates With Rebels
Through Committee of Citizens.

KHARKOFF. Oct. 26. Restoration of
the telegraph system .enables 'the sending
of a description of the drama which has
been unrolled here since October 24, when
the news of tho death of a student named
Oonstantlndi, as the result of wounds in
flicted by a patrol and of other acts of
violence on the students led to oxcited
meetings at the university, at which, in
anticipation of the arrival of troops. It
was decided to barricade the university
and to defend it by force.
Barricades formed of telegraph poles,
paving stones, etc., were built around
the center of the city, and the univorsity
was converted into a fortress. The win
dows and doors were blocked with masses
of stones and coal, and red flags with
revolutionary inscriptions were hoisted on
the roofs. The university garrison, which
numbered 4000, was well supplied with
Mobs Pillage Town.
Simultaneously in tho town the mobs
pillaged the shops of the armorers, and
one shop was completely sacked. Drag
oons appeared on the scene and fired
fusillades into the crowds, killing ton per
sons and wounding many others.
Further conflicts took place between a
patriotic demonstration of 300 persons,
bearing a portrait of .the Emperor, and
bodies of students and workmen who were
proceeding to the university. Roughs
profited by the confusion to attack the
shops and peaceable citizens in the out
skirts of the town, which had been de
nuded of police.
Matters reached such a stage that a
state of siege was declared in the uni
versity district. Ldcutenant-General Mau
was placed in command, and a committee
of public safety was formed by the lead
ing citizens. This committee entered
into negotiations with the Governor.
Meantime the troops arrived, and the
commltee, with the consent of the Gov
ernor, entrusted the guarding of the town
to a militia, composed of armed students
and workmen. This militia was acclaimed
by the populace, but at certain points
its members were fired upon by troops,
and many of them were wounded.
March Out With Honors of War.
The committee conferred with General
Mau, with a view to arranging terms for
the surrender of the university garrison.
The general demanded that the besieged
yield up their arms to the university ad
ministration and march out in silence,
but he agreed that they would be permit
ted to proceed without molestation to
their comrades, who were holding a great
meeting in Skobeleff square.
The terms were accepted, and the gar
rison marched out in silence between lines
of troops, while the crowd massed behind
the troops cheered the students. The gar
rison was escorted by a squadron of
dragoons to Skobeleff square, where it
was met with great enthusiasm aud dis
persed without further disorder.

operated by the railroad battalions.
The strike contagion is spreading. All
classes of workmen are organizing sym

country is coming to a standstill. The

NEW ALLY FOR REVOLUTION
Foreign Bankers Will Not Grant
Loan Till Peace Returns.
ST. PETERSBURG, Oct 6. The
great strike promises to delay and
possibly Interrupt the negotiations for
the new Russian loan. The International
bankers who'are here do not eeem greatly
disturbed by the situation, although they
are constantly in receipt of threatening
.letters from the revolutionists, warning
them that if they contract a loan without
the consent of the National Assembly it
will be repudiated.
Nevertheless, they are not disposed to
close with the government until the sit
uation has cleared up. The fact that the
strike may Jeopardize the success of the
loan is one of the most "potent levers be

eign bankers the unconscious allies of the

The rifles and cartridges taken in Fin
