Russia Prepares to Choose
National Douma.
Government Forbids Manipulation
and Orders Free Choice by Peo
ple Socialists Call General
Strike In Protest.
ST. PETERSBURG, l3ept 2. Though the
new National Assembly, during the first
days after tne Issuance of the Emperor's
manifesto calling the assembly, was given
more unfavorable criticism than praise
and the Russian press through ignorance
took a tar loss favorable view of the new
Institution than did the foreign newspa
pers, the value of the Assembly, the ex
tent of its powers and the long steps for
ward it marks in the path of reform are
now? becoming generally recognized
throughout the empire- A flood of ad
dresses of thanks Is coming In from all
classes and from all regions, the clt:
doumar- leading the districts, though the
urban population was supposed to have
been placed at a considerable disadvan
tage with the peasants and the nobility
imder the electoral arrangement. A num
lor of doumas have coupled their ad
dresses with requests for freedom of
speech and of the press, but only in a few
title were addresses rejected.
Removing Defects in Scheme.
The project, the provisions of which
are difOcult of comprehension by people
not experienced In parliamentary Institu
tions, is being taken up for careful study
and consideration, and. because of this,
much of the adverso criticism Is wearing
away and the talk of a boycott of the
Awembly by the Liberals Is no longer
hrd. Public discussion of the Assembly
and the .steps that are being taken to put
It Into effect are bringing to light minor
defects and impracticable projects and
the Ministry of the Interior is busy an
swering questions and furnishing Interpre
tations on doubtful points. It Is apparent
that a number of modifications, either by
imperial direction or by the douma itself,
will be necessary before the Assembly be
comes a practical working body.
Some of the principal complaints that
the border provinces wore not to be rep
resented In the first Assembly have been
removed by the prompt convening of the
Soteky Commission for elaborating a
schemo for elections In those districts in
which the system of local organisation
that pro vails In the 50-governments of
Russia proper, the machinery of which
was appointed by the Bouligan Commis
sion for election purposes, Ik in existence
and by a declaration of the Ministry of
the Interior that the reports are absolute
ly without foundation.
Elections Will Be Free.
The elections In the entire empire must
be ended by Decombor 15. Since tho work
of oanvasslng the vote and the Journoys
of distant representatives to St. Peters
burg will occupy the month before the
dato fixed by the Emporor for convening
the Assembly, tho work of preparation of
electoral lists Is actively under way In the
various cities and in the country districts,
and telegraphic orders -have been sent to
the dilator' heads of a number of govern
ments to proceed Immediately with the
Accusations which are frequently cir
culated in many parliamentary states that
the government intends to manipulate
elections are heard here concerning the
douma. and Indeed, with numerical pre
dominance of peasant electors and the
peasants' awe of the prefects and other
local officials, the government is undoubt
edly in a p;tton to do so. This undoubt
edly will be the desire of many provin
oml chinovnlks who have been nccus
tontod to wielding arbitrary authority,
with little more reference to the wishes
of the central government than to the de
sires of the people of this district. But
tht provisions of the project and election
regulations and special orders issued since
show that the government Is acting in
good faith aiid Is doing Its best to make
the elections independent. A limit Is put
on the activity of the provincial admlnls
tratlve authorities, and the elections are
placed in the control of authorities popu
larly elected or appointed. The bureau
cracy has no voice In the arrangements
and no vote in the elections.
How Will Classes Combine?
A number of computations have been
made by enemies of the project for tbe
purpose of showing the peasants in the
majority In the douma; but these prog
nostications are groundless, as It Is not
known what combinations the three
classes, of electors will form among them
selves in the various governments, and the
Inclination of the peasant electors Is to
use the plurality colleges to secure an
undue share of representatives and force
the city and the nobility electors to com
bine In self-defense.
The project is received with satisfac
tion by the Jews In Russia, .primarily- be
cause it is the first general law promul
gated In Russia in 80 years not containing
a clauso discriminating against the Jews
as a race. This is more than they had
Tioped for.-They are granted political
rights under the douma equal to those
of a large proportion of the
civil rights enjoyed by other Russians.
The logical outcome of this condition must
be. of course, that the civil rights of Jews
will bo Increased and broadened, and rec
ognition of this also causes them satis
faction. Hew Era Dawns for Jews.
It can e safely said that the establish
ment of the Douma means the dawn of
an Improved condition for the Jews, but
to what extent this amelioration will be
carried out it is Impossible now to tell.
The settlement of many details of the
Jewish problem will rest with the Douma
itself, but Jewish representation In the
Douma will be smalL The Jewish soldiers
who fought in the war will be permitted
upon mustering out to settle anywhere In
Russia except Moscow and the Caucasus.
This permits the settlement of about 50,
000 families outside the pale. The zone
of residence Is very gradually extending
and the authorities say that further ex
tension is contemplated.
A Te Dcum was sung yesterday at the
synagogue In St. Petersburg for the grant
ing of political rights to the Jews, but
there was no public attendance whatever.
Te Dums were also sung In one or two
other clues, but with no greater public
enthusiasm. The Jews exchanged con
gratulations among themselves on the
granting of political rights, but in Vilna,
Odessa, Gomel and other places where
spontaneous expressions of satisfaction
might be particularly looked for, the
strong antl-Je welsh sentiment prevailing
served to prevent them. It being feared
the demonstration would be attended by
Russian Labor Party Proposes Pro
test Against Czar's Douma.
NEW YORK. Sept 2. (Special.) The
New York section of the Social Demo
cratic party today received a manifesto
issued by the central committee of tho
Social Democratic Labor party of Russia,
stating that It Is making preparations for
the greatest strike over "known on carta.
More than 20,000,030 of working people
are to be involved. The strike la to go
into effect at the time of the general elec
tion In .Russia, when representatives for
the National Assmbly will he chosen. The
new Douma is denounced by the working
people as the merest caricature or a na
tional Assembly. The party manifesto 1b
"To All Those Who Are Robbed of Their
Rights." It proposes a general strike all
over the country at the.tlme of elections
and choice of representatives by the great
numbers whom tho Czar's edict disfran
chises. It is proposed that the strikers
go to the capital and confront the dele
gates of- the privileged classes. The mani
festo says. In part:
You all remember, citizens, the Czar's
promise of February 18. After stubbornly
refusing for years to listen to the appeals
for a change in political conditions, he
then declared his intention to call upon
men trusted by tho people to participate
in legislation.
-The moment Is approaching for the ful
fillment of that promise. It will be glori
fied In various terms by all tho hirelings
whose trade Is to deceive the people. This
now law will be nothing more nor less
than another deadly Insult to the people
Year after year have the workingmen
of all nationalities which Inhabit the Rus
sian empire struggled against the bated,
autocracy. Year after year have they de
manded freedom, demanded that the peo
ple should control the state. Working
men's bloofl nas been shed In torrents for
this end. And now, when the Czar's gov
ernment has at last felt compelled to call
together representatives of the natloririt
has denied the working class any right to
choose their own spokesman.
In a word, this Douma will be a xnls
repreeentative body. Such an assembly
will allow tho nrlvilejrcd atrocities to con
tinue. Only a representative assemly,
chosen fov universal, direct and secret suf
frage, will be able to right these wrongs
ind bring In a. new order.
nrst oi an, you snouia rcpiy an over
the land with a general and solid prdtest
against the denial of the people's rights.
Answer the Czar with a general strike.
Let not a chimney smoke, let not a fac
tory run, let not a store be kept open, let
not an office conduct Its business while
the election proceeds. Cabs, trolleys, rail
roads, steamers let them all stand stllL
Drop your work. Tell your employers
this time you are on strike against the
Czar's government.
Arrange your meetings and demonstra
tions and call for a universal, constituent
assemly. Take caro that the people them
selves choose their delegates to go to the
Prepare for a strike, and at the same
time prepare to repulse the onslaughts of
the brutal police. Arm yourselves at
whatever cost. Save pennies to buy

In every factory and let these companies

On to the battle, comrades! Hurrah for

Printer Palmer has requested the res
ignation of Oscar J. Bicketta, foreman
of printing, and L C Hay, foreman of
the Job division, of the Government
Printing Office, basins bis action
upon their alleged continued acts of
insubordination. Both officials have

sufficient opportunity to reply, as re
quired by the civil service regulations.
Mr. RIcketts tonight Issued a brief
statement of the case, at the same time
speaking- in behalf of Mr. Hay. In bla
statement he says:
"They (Hay and RIcketts) know of
no reason why this request should be
made at this time unless It arises from
the fact that they were called as wit
nesses and testified In the matter of
the Investigation of the purchase of
certain typesetting machines, and in
that respect they gave evidence fairly
and honestly, as they were obliged to
do under their oaths.
"They have declined to comply with
the request for their resignations and
have submitted the matter to the Civil
Service Commission and to the Presi
dent of the United States, and believe
that a full and complete Investigation
of the situation will result In their
being exonerated from any charges
made against them by the Public

of the Northern Division. The General
in this report repeats the complaints
about the many saloons which are always
to be found around the posts, over which
the military authorities have no control
whatever, and It Is stated that a saloon
In connection with the canteen or post ex
change run by some responsible person
under fixed rules would be a great advan

Guard noted a general improvement, and
it Is noted that there is an hones effort
on the part of tbe state officials to Im

Wonderful Remedial Agency and D
tactics From Abdominal Wall:
Portlaad Recognised n Sci
entific Center.
CHICAGO. Sept. 2. Two months ago
wheny J. R. Thomas, a well-known
manufacturer of the Lake Shore district,
loft this city for treatment of cancer or
the stomach, he did so bidding good-bye
to his family and Intimate friends with
the expectancy of possibly never return
ing. For the past two years Mr. Thomas
has been in tho hands of eminent special
ists and under their Instructions has
visited the leading springs In Europe, be
ing attended there by famous European
physicians. In May last. Mr. Thomas
returned from Marlenbad disheartened,
the attending physicians advising him to
return to America as nothing more could
be done. As a last resort, a capital
operation was advised by a Chicago sur
geon and sanctioned by Mr. Thomas.
Upon making an exploratory Incision the
surgeon concluded not to go further, the
condition of the stomach and Intestines
being such that certain death would have
resulted, notwithstanding that the opern
tlon Itself might have been, as doctors,
say. very successful. Mr. Thomas was ad
vised by his doctors to try "Liquid Sun
shine," the greatest remedy of the age,
the same treatment to which Dr. Harper
was subjected, a combined use of radium
and fluorescent medicine popularly
known as "Liquid Sunshine." Twice
a da j' Mr. Thomas was treated
with chloride of rndlum tubes at
the X-Radlum Medical Institute, of Port
land, Ore., and in addition, partook three
times a day of a solution containing ten
drops of the fluorescent liquid, which was
sufficient to keep his entire system satur
ated. The radium thus Injected excited
the fluorescent liquid Into the cancer to
luminosity, the light acting upon the can
cerous tissue absolutely destroying the
same and penetrating into cavities where
the knifo dared not or could not pene
trate. Six weeks' treatment at the X
Radlum Medical Institute reduced the
area of the cancer from IS to four square
Inches and completely detached It from
the abdominal wall, and within two
months Mr. Thomas left the Institute
pronounced cured. Since his return Mr.
Thomas has regularly attended to his
business at the factory, working eight and
nine hours dally, gaining weight and Is
showing the highest spirits. Specialists
here, who have thoroughly examined Mr
Thomas since his return, say the cure Is
a remarkable one, but assert that the
treatment, despite the many cures cred
ited to the X-Radlum Medical Institute, is
yet in Its experimental stage. Be this as
It may, "Liquid Sunshine" la bordering
close upon tho miraculous and Oregon is
being prominently Identified with the
scientific world In producing such re
markable cures as have been made of late
at the Portland X-Radlum Medical In

KARLSTAD, Sweden, Sept. 2. Swed

union between Sweden and Norway con
tinued their deliberations today. The- ses

crecy was observed In regard to tho pro
ceedings. It la said that the Swedish del
egates took the stand that they were
treating with the Norwegian delegates
not In their capacity as representatives of
the government In existence, but as rep
resentatives of the cabinet appointed by
King Oscar, thus emphasizing the fact
that Sweden does not recognize Norway's
claim that the union has already been
dissolved. This Is denied by Norwegians
here, but the report Is published by the
After Posten of Chrlstlanla. The Swedish
delegates are assisted by three military
The feeling here this evening Is that. If
the conference falls to reach an agree
ment within a week, the negotiations are
likely to be suddenly broken off. The
Norwegian delegates are not as optimistic
as they were on their arrival. Premier

In a telegram to the State Board of
Health today. Dr. C. L. Horton. who Is
representing the board at Patterson. Bent
news of an ugly situation which prevails
mere, involving threats against the emer
gency hospital and perhaps harm to those
who are fighting the disease. Dr. Horton
wired that the fver-flghters were having
trouble, and that rioting by Italians was
feared. Several of the Italians, he said,
had died of yellow fever, and pnyslclans
had had warnings conveyed to them to be
on their guard. Dr. Horton Immediately
ordered a guard to be thrown about the
hospital, apprehending that an attempt
might be made to burn It. A meeting of
citizens will be held and an organization
perfected to protect the hospitals, the
physicians," the nurses and the town-itselt
from violence. Dr. Horton wired to Gov
ernor Blanchard. and the Governor re-
piled that he must protect the hospital
under all circumstances, and that arms
would be sent to him for that purpose.
He will take charge of the volunteer
guards. It Is expected that with the pre-
cautions that have been taken there will
be no trouble.
Favorable reports of the yellow fever
situation both In the city and the country
were again tne rule today.

ATLANTA, Ga.. Sept. 2. The City
Health Department announces one case
of yellow fever In Atlanta. The patient
came from Pensacola here Thursday. The
patient is at the detention camp, and
all precautions have been taken.
On account of the announcement that
yellow fever existed here. Dr. C. P. "Wert
enbacker, of the Marine Hospital Service,
today stopped Issuing health certificates
to travelers. This undoubtedly will work
great Inconvenience, as a considerable
number of people have come here to se
cure certificates from the Federal offi
cials. The Georgia State Board of Health
met this afternoon and decided to advise
the health officials of the larger cities and
towns of the state to quarantine' against
infected points.
Yellow Fever 3IosquIto Doesn't
Breed In Atlanta.
WASHINGTON. Sept. 2. Atlanta Is not
regarded as infectible territory for yellow
fever by the public health and marine
hospital service, and no spread of the dis
ease Is anticipated there. This view Is
based on the experience of the past, as
cases of yellow fever have several times
appeared In Atlanta, but have never pro
duced a new case. Surgeon-General Wy
man said tonight he had received a report
of the case developed there today from
Surgeon Wertenberger, of the Marine
Hospital Service. The infested person had
been removed several miles out of town
and screened. Dr. Wyman said, however,
that the yellow fever mosquito does not
breed in Atlanta, and for that reason
no spread of tbe disease need be feared.

It really never bothered me until

thing for It.

The three days In which he ran amuck
through a territory miles In extent, firing
upon men and women, burning farm
houses and driving the population from
their homes to places of safety In the
city, marked one of the strangest and
most sensational episodes In the history
of the county. Friday night 500 men
patrolled the high roads, waiting for
Pitts, their guns cocked and loaded.
The climax came when word was re

had been seen at his grandfather's home
at French Creek. Thither a posse of 1W
men galloped without sleep. At a turn of
the road they saw Pitts In the distance,
and they formed, ready to fire. He turned,
watched the squad a moment, drew his
revolver, vaulted a fence and then, while
the posse grimly watched, he shot himself
four times ahd fell a corpse.
