COUNCIL SITS ALL NIGHT.
ST. PETERSBURG. Oct. 29. (1:80 A.
M.) (Special.) All the members of the
Council of Ministers received a hasty
summons late laet night to Petcrhof.
The Council Is still In conference with
the Czar. It Us believed that an Im
perial edict will be published granting
a constitution to Russia cither today or
LONDON., . Oct. 20 (3 A. M.) (Spe
clal.) A, St. Petersburg; dlnpatck to the
Sunday Obwervcr ttayn It Is rumored
that Admiral Blrlloff, Minister of Ma
rine, and Admiral Chukaiae hare been
killed br bombK.
The bulk of the population believe
that the Imperial family fled after the
Czar had invested Count Wltte Tilth
ST. PETERSBURG. Oct 28. Day after
day passes without the promulgation of
Russia's Jiew governmental organ, a re
sponsible Ministerial Cabinet to bring or
der out of the present administrative
chaos. Count Witte, to whom all factions
look to assume thePremleriihlp, has spent
almost the entire- time of 'the past two
days at Peterholf wrestling with the Em
peror, insisting upon conditions in connec
tion with his appointment which His Maj
esty was unwilling to grant.
Upon his return to St. Petersburg to
night. Count Wltte announced that the
Cabinet project, which has been lying
signed for three days on the Emperor's
table, will not be promulgated tomorrow,
intimating thereby that his programme,
which is known to include a species of
constitution Involving the granting of
"four liberties" freedom of speech, free
dom of assembly, freedom of the press
and freedom of the person has t not been
accepted. It Is felt here that the delay
cannot be long protracted, and that it is
only a question of hours when the Em
peror confides the fortunes of the dynasty
and the government to Count "Witte's
Revolutionists Grow Bolder.
Meanwhile the situation Is passing from
bad to worse, with matters at the mo
ment In a stale of unstable equilibrium.
The chiefs of state arc at a loss how to
act, and the revoltulonists, encouraged by
the inactivity of the government, are
growing bolder and more insistent In the
demands made in their .speeches. It is
true there has been no disorder In St. Pe
tersburg, and that Geenral Trepoff, the
Emperor's strong man, has taken every
measure to put down an uprising In its in
cipiency, but he has not felt sure enough
of his position to act boldly with regard
to the revolutionary meetings at the uni
versity, and has contented himself with Is
suing warnings which, not having been
enforced, are taken by the agitators as
evidence of lack of backbone.
As before Friday night's giant meeting
at the university, it was again announced
today that further meetings there would
not be permitted, but the college portals
were again open tonight an dthe hospital
ity of the university was extended to a
group of lawyers and other professional
men, one of whose orators, referring to
the old Russian folk-legend that the world
is supported on the backs of three whales,
said that the autocracy rested on three
cetacea money, the army and the loyalty
of the people but that Russia Is now
bankrupt and the moral sympathy of the
people alienated, and that the army alqpo
remains true, and this, he predicted, would
not be long.
Another speaker openly preached ter
rorism and advocated "making an exam
ple of a number of high penwnages."
Trepoff Allied With Witte.
Count "Witte's ally in the stupendous
task he is about to take will be General
Trepoff, who, though all his life has been
spent as an instrument of oppression
and though he twice has escaped attempts
by the terrorists' instruments of death,
has come to -realize that the old order of
things Is changing and giving: place to a
new, and is now a genuine convert to the
policy of giving the people a share in the
The best opinion is that nothing will
save the present goevrnment from com
plete ruin. Many 6hrewd observers he
Heve that Witte comes too late.
Soldiers Camp on Streets.
The condition In St. Petersburg In that
of one fairly under siege , and one with
surprises threatened from within, almost
completely Isolated and its scanty store
of provisions being rapidly exhausted.
The garrison, however, is overwhelmingly
large. General Trepoff has 90,000 troops
under his command, which are distrib
uted In. evsry ctioa of. tie city., ihzrt
is scarcely a block" without Hts military
patrol. Infantry and cavalry are quar
tered in courtyards all over town, the
barracks are crowded and the ampllrcs
of the soldiers, who are bivouacking- in
the streets, light up the thoroughfares
where electricity has been extinguished.
The Nevsky prospect, the city's main
avenue, which last night was in dark
ness, tonight presents a weird appearance.
A powerful searchlight, mounted at the
Admiralty, Illuminates the center of the
avenue with a blinding light, . leaving the
sidewalks in darkness. Drivers in the
roadway, dazzled by the glare, were, un
able to see where they were going, and
the- throngs In obscurity on the sidewalks
were In butjittle better plight. There was
constant confusion, which was augmented
during the evening by an attempt of the
Cossacks" and gendarmes to clear the
Two hundred thousand men arc idle.
"Workmen's meetings held throughout the
city today unanimously favored continu
ing the strike. The lawyers during the
afternoon stopped all the businoss of the
Moscow Defies Authority.
The situation at Moscow parallels that
In St. Petersburg. The same' paralysis
has seized Bussla's - second city. The
strike is general. The people are defy
ing all prohibitions and are swarming
to the universities and -other meeting
places. A. provisional government has
already been organized and is waiting to
exercise its powers. The university is
barVlcaded against the troops.
The populations of other towns arc
growing more violent, and reports of
disorders are arising in large numbes
frpm all sections. The efforts of the
troops so far have been generally suc
cessful. Troops are in full possession
at many places in the Interior and the
inhabitants 'are panic-stricken.
There Is no relaxation of the railroad
strike, which bus spread even to Con
tral Asia, where the Trans-Caspian-Orenburg-
and Tashkend lines are tied up
The strike on the Trans-Siberian Rail
road is interfering with the bringing- of
troops from the Far East. The Thir
teenth Corps was ordered to entrain
yesterday, but was unable to do so.
Rumors of Black Sea Mutiny.
The sudden and unexpected arrival
of the battleship Catherine II at Odes
sa, while the remainder of the fleet is
announced to be still cruising- at sea,
has revived the rumors of the mutiny
reported to have taken place on board
that battleship and a second mutiny
on the Kniaz Potemkih, but there is
no conflrmatlQn of those rumors. The
dispatch to the Associated Press from
Odessa announced only the bare fact
of the Catherine IPs arrival there. Ic
spite of the fact that the revolutionist
party has the government almost by
the -throat, persons well informed as to
the situation are of the opinion that
present conditions cannot long; endure.
The proletariat, they say, will be first
to feel the pangs of hunger. There are
intimations that the strike organiza
tion may early next week issue a proc
lamation that the strike has served its
purpose and shown its strength to the
people, and directing that the workers
resume their occupations, but to be
prepared for another and greater 'dem
onstration later, if necessary.
FIGHTING OX CITY STREETS
One Hundred "Wounded In Frequent
Conflicts at Moscow.
MOSCOW, Oct. 20. (L A. ' M.) (Spe-
cimal.) One hundred persons wounded- is
the record of the fighting "that has oc
curred here tonight. Of these several will
die. Fr6quent collisions between strikers
and tho troops have occurred and blood
has been spilled freely by the soldiers-in
dispersing the bands of citizens.
It is almost certain that fighting of a
general nature will result from tho at
tacks made on the people by soldiers, as
the citizens are becoming greatly aroused.

SAN FRANCISCO, Cal.. Oct. SS.-fSpecial
Correspondence.) Two months ago, the
loaders of the Democratic and Republican
parties in San Francisco came together
and resolved that aH the old-time party
strife should be burled in an attempt to
wrest the clty government from the forces
which have done so much to bring dis
credit upon San Francisco. This decid
ed, the next step was to select a standard-bearer
who should command the re
spect of all good citizens.
This, it will be readily understood, was
no easy task, and formed the rock upon
which It was freely predicted the fusion
movement would be wrecked. A careful
survey was made of the list of available
candidates, and finally a list was drawn
up on which were nearly 200 names. Then
the process of elimination was begun, and
at the conclusion of a week's careful
study it was decided that John S. Part

Partridge is a product of the frontier.
He was born in the mountains of Lasson

was 20 or 30 miles. His father, who was a
civil engineor, sent the boy to the schools
of SusanvHIe. Completing the course of
the village Institution, young Partridge
gained the consent of his parents to come
to San Francisco for his high-school train
ing. He threw himself into his work with

Forty contractors have been bidding for
portions of the work, but the slices of
the construction fund have so far been
parceled to only a little more than a
dozen. Several contracts have been
awarded for work westward from Cape
Horn, but not announced, because no at
tempt will probably be made to prosecute
work at that end until the Eastern and
larger portion is finished, or practicaily
so. There Is a great deal 6f dirt work
below Cape Horn that cannot be economi
cally done during the Winter months.
Peter- Slems announced last night that

construction material can be delivered by
the shortest 'possible haul. In reference
to time of completing the work, he was
reticent, but said: "It will be hurried
Just as rapidly as possible, but owing to
the facts that everybody has taken it
into their heads to build railroads at the
satnc time, that labor Is scarce and that
portions of the work cannot well be car

Just how-soon It can be finished. For ad

The subcontractors to whom awards of

STRAW VOTES ALL HIS WAY
McCIellan's Own Meetings
Cheer Hearst to Echo.-
TAMMANY MEN WEAKENING
District Leader Flops and Others
Promise Support Uprising
Against Gas Trust May
Sweep Hearst In.
NEW YORK. Oct. 2S.-(SpeciaI.) It
really sounds foolish to say it. I know,
but the actual fact Is that It Is begin
ning to look very much as If William
Randolph Hearst might be elected.
Explain It? Well, I cannot, but. Tam
many Is scared out of several years
growth, and Is using the most desperatej
means to stem the tide.
You do not hear anything else but
Hearst wherever you go. The enthusiasm,
for him is not confined to his friends, the
common people, but is spreading through
out the city.
Of course, straw votes do not always
Indicate the way the political wind Is
blowing, but occasionally they do. For
example,- the Brooklyn Eagle has been
testing sentiment, with the most unex
pected results. The Eagle, It should bo
stated. Is a warm advocate of McClel
Ian and bitterly opposed to Hearst, but
was fair enough to print the following
A Few Straw Votes.
One of the most extraordinary test votes
ever taken In this city was that made yester
day at the repair shops and factory of the
Long Island Railroad Company at Hollls.
With a view to determining the favorite,
candidate of the vast number of employes
for Mayor, some of the men rigged up a
batlotbox and word Was sent around that
all men who had registered and wera en
titled to a vole would be expected to ex
press a. preference In the Mayoralty race.
The vote was by secret ballot. There are
about 000 men In the shops. It Is said, and
of these there were 832 entitled to vote
throughout the city. The counting of the
ballots resulted as follows: Hearst, Ma
Clellan. 5; Ivns. 2.
Now, what do you think of th4t?
The male employes of Macy's store
who are registered took a straw ballot
under almost similar conditions, with
this result: Hearst 625, McCIellan 4, Ivlns
2, Lee (Socialist) 1.
And here are a few more:
Fisher's Marble Yard, One Hundred and
Forty-first street and Locust avenue: Hearst,
203: McCIellan. 18: Ivlns. 18.
Mlona Social Club. No. 205 East One Hun

Members of the Joint Board of the Metro
politan District Army and Navy Union.
Brooklyn: Hearst. 33; McCIellan, 4; Ivlns. 7.
The secretary of the Housesmlths &
Brldgemen's Union is authority for tho
statement that 4200 of the 5000 members
will vote for Hearst, and it may be more.
This percentage 13 practically kept up In
all the labor unions of the city.
One Tammnny Lender Flops.
One Democratic Assembly district lead
in Brooklyn, Henry F. Cochrane, has
openly gone over with his organization to
the Municipal Ownership League. I know
absolutely that five Tammany Assembly
district leaders have sent word to Hearst
that, while they are outwardly with the
organization, they are secretly doing all
they can to aid him, and will be ready to
flop after election. They are trying to
carry water on both shoulders, of course,
but they realize that the situation is des
perate. Mayor McCIellan's tour of the city,
which Is much more extensive than he
first planned, has developed the most as
tonishing conditions. His auditors have
got up by scores, cheered for Hearst,
hooted Murphy and gas, and acted In a
most unusual way. And this, mark you.
Is In districts overwhelmingly Tammany
for years and where the meager opposi
tion has In the past found- It advisable to
keep quiet to escape sudden death. An
effort has been made to show that these
disturbers were hired by the Municipal
Ownership League, but Inquiry satisfies
anyone that they were heretofore loyal
