Czar's Rescript Received With Joy
as Step to Freedom.
ST. PETERSBURG, March 4. The im
perial rescript announcing that Emperor
Nicholas has decided to convene an as
sembly of elected representatives of the
people to elaborate and consider legisla
tion has produced a wonderful impression.
The war and the battle below Mukden are
forgotten. The rescript Is regarded by
many as a second emancipation procla
The Novoe Vremya characterizes It as
Russia's happiest hour. The Liberals are
amazed, and in the flush of enthusiasm
are regarding it as a recognition of the
elective principle and the complete sur
render of autocracy, but discriminating
people, while regarding It as a great vic
tory, realize that all will depend on the
manner in which the reform la carried
out. They do not yet harbor the vision of
a great national assembly debating all
questions of state. According to their
view, an entering wedge has been made.
bat the fight between Liberalism and Con
servatism is now transferred to the com
mission charged with the elaboration of
the reform, and only by keeping up the
agitation do they believe a real triumph is
That the fight will continue in the com
mitt ee Is unquestionable. One of the Min
isters, a man who has labored In favor of
broad concessions, said to the representa-
tive of the Aseoclated Press today that a
contest Is inevitable. According to his
opinion, it is useless to try to forecast the
result, but the great principle for which
he and others have been fighting had won.
High hopes are now entertained by the
Government of calming the present agi

Bloodshed Is feared in Poland and other
parts of Russia, and the authorities have
taken the most energetic measures every
where. Here the courtyards are full of
troops and gendarmes, and patrols of Cos
sacks are parading the industrial section
in anticipation of trouble. But the re
script has had a quieting effect on the
workmen, and Governor-Gensral Trepoft
says he is convinced that nothing on a
large scale will occur, although it Is pos
sible that there may be slight disorders.
Horrible Brutality of Police and Sol
diers at Tomsk.
ST. PI&ERSBURG. March 4. Mail ad
vices which have just arrived here give
details of the student riots at Tomsk,
Western Siberia, February 26, preceding
the closing of the University and Tech
nical Institute. They represent it as a
horrible affair In which students were
herded, shot and slashed by the infantry,
guards, Cossacks and police. Nine stu
dents were killed and 28 were seriously
Over 100 young men and women were
taken to the police station, where they
were stripped of their clothing and some
of them were beaten into Insensibility
with sticks of wood. The women were
dragged about by the hair, amid cries
from the police of "there Is a wretched
liberty hound." So shameful was the ac
tion of the police that the whole Fifth
Division of police was bound over by the
court on the charge of brutality.
The Indignation at Tomsk was so In
tense that the professors of the Technical
Institute joined the students in deciding
to strike until the form of government is
changed. The university students at a
final meeting tore up the Emperor's pic

Rescript Well Received by Liberals,
but Not by Workmen.
ST, PETERSBURG, March 5. The Im

they are not declaring- themselves posi

Voters of Yamhill County Discuss
Question With W. S. U'Ren.
MMrNNVLUiE, Or.. March 4. (Spe
cial.) At the meeting of the referendum
committee today, W. S. "U'Ren, of Oregon
City, was present He stated as the
reason for his visit a request from Sena
tor Kuykendall, of Lane, that he come to
McMInnville and learn the extent of the
citizens' mass meeting could be recon
vened and the petitions calling for a ref
erendum of the J1.0CO,000 appropriation bill
called In, and also petitions for initiative
measures to correct the evils complained
of to be circulated instead.
The movement was fully discussed by
the committee and Mr. U'Ren. During
the discussion Mr. U'Ren was asked by
the committee if it was not the purpose of
those opposing the referendum to side
track the movement by initiative move
ment. He made no definite reply to this
question. Before leaving the city Mr.
U'Ren stated as his opinion that the pe
tition would easily receive the required
number of signers, and that In all prob-
ablllty the appropriation would be vetoed
by the people. This will be the case, if
Yamhill County Is any criterion.
During the day, while Mr. TTRen waa
here, the purpose of his visit became gen
erally known, and the possibility of his
opposition seemed to stir the people into
more determined action. Expressions
were often heard on the streets that left
no doubt of their determination to defeat
the hill at the polls.
The situation in the county may be
summed up in Mr. TTRen's statement to
Senator Wrisht before leaving that "if
an angel came down from heaven it would
not stem the movement, for It seems that
every man, woman and child favors It
Such Intense interest has not been man
ifested by the people in any movement
for many years, and the feoling seems to
grow with each farmer that comes to pay
his taxes, and it Is not uncommon for old'
line Republicans to say, "Hurrah for
Chamberlain!" for cutting out the emer
gency clause. With this feeling there Is
a slight disposition to run amuck on all
unconstitutional state institutions and sal
aries, but the cooler heads who are in
the van of the movement counsel caution
and judicious action. They do not want
to jeopardize the popularity of the ref
