Gov. Cnrtin Kclatc Some Anecdotci oflho '
Ilns!aa Antociat. !
Iu ibc bonso postoflice the olLer ;
day, -writes tbo Washington corres- j
poiident of tbo Indianapolis Journal, ,
some statesmen -wero discussing tno
trial oE Eiel, tbo rabellionist in tbe
Nort-hwest province, lio bas been
sentenced lo death for conspiracy and
treason against her majesty's govern
ment. Among them was Representa
tive Cnrtin of Pennsylvania, ex-governor
and ex-minister to numerous
"I should not care to have my life,"
said Gov. Curtin, ''bang in tbo bal
ance of maDy of tbe courts of foreign
countries, and especially courts-martial.
The tribunals of Russia are
very oppressive and the peoplo "who
arecalied upon to defend themselves
against treason, conspiracy or even
disrespect to the government have
little chance for life. It is almost
sure death to bo charged with any
thing against the czar of Russia. I
remember an instance which came un
der my notice while I was United
States minister to Enssia, which
shows the oppression. An American
of considerable prominence and a
good deal of wealth, who was travel
ing over the world, came to me with
n letter. He made my headquarters
his own aud I showed him all tbo
courtesies I could. He was quite in
dependent and American, I found,
however, in his observations about
the czarish government, and seemed
to understand tbo courtesies required
toward the "ruler and his subordi
nates. "One day while this American was
in St. Petersburg with me," continued
Gov. Curtin, "we took a stroll on the
leading thoroughfare at a time when
the populace was out in force for
drives and walks. It is a custom
strictly adhered to that the head shall
be bared aud the people shall bo
bared aud tbo peoplo shall bow
in courtesy lo the czar when
lie drives through the streets.
"When we were out the Czar
passed our party, who were on
foot. He was in bis carriage, accom
panied by numerous attendants. Ev
eryone raised his hat and bowed ex
cept my American friend with me.
The czar recognized me and my
'friends, and-alsrxlbe one who did Jiot
salute him. I saw that the discour
tesy was observed, and turned to my
friend when the cavalcade had passsd
and said: You made a great mistako
in not saluting the czar.' 4Oh,' replied
h?, 'I don't care anything about that'
"The next day a note came to me
(o appear at the foreign office. I
'You wero out on the street yes
terday when the czar passed through
on his drive?'
'" Yes,' I replied.
"'Yon had some friends with you?1
" 'Yes, sir.'
"t)ae of them did not salute the
" 'I believe not.'
"'Well, you bad belter ask him lo
come here and apologize or explain
his actiou. That will bo satisfactory.'
"Of course I was greatly embar
rassed, and promised lo have my
friend call and make the amend hon
orable if bo would do so. Eat do
you know that the fellow wouldn't
do it? No, his American obstinacy
fhowed itself, even lo mnlishnes3. He
said be wouldn't do it, he didn't pro
pose to apologize for failing to saluto
the czar; ho had done nothing wrong
and he had nothing lo apologize for.
This was communicated to the foreign
office, with my regrets. I could do
nothing more. Tbo very next day
my friend came to me with a great
document from the Russian govern
ment. He said he wanted it trans
lated. I bad it dono for him, It was
a notice to skip.
" 'You must leave here at once,' I
said to my friend.
" 'Oh ! but I shall not do it,' he
naively replied. 'I am guilty of no
crime, and I shall remain hero as
long as I wish,'
"A few evenings afterward, I learn
ed, sorao officers called at tbe hotel
and took my friend away. Ho was
never beard from after that I do
not know whether he was sent lo
Siberia, to prison, or executed."
Gov. Curtin related an incident
which illustrates the perfection of
the Russian spy system. While min
ister to Russia ho went to Paris. It
was during the Franco-Prussian dif
ficulty. The president of Franco seat for
him. and ho went to the palace.
"Yon have recently had n talk with
the czar of Russia about our foreign
trouble?" be asked.
"I have," replied the governor.
"Would you caro to tell me what
ho tbiuks of it ?"
"Well, as a diplomat representing
the United States, I must decline,"
the governor answered.
Returning to Russia the czar re
quested his presence.
"You have just been over to
"Talked with the president P
"Would yon caro to tell mo what
was said about the foreign difficulty?"
Gov. Curtin declined to do so, in
the same respectful language he had
employed in Paris.
"W7ell, I will tell you what was said
to you, exactly," said the czar, and
he proceeded to repeat the conversa
tion tbe governor had bad. The in
formation had reached the czar
through the Russian spy system,
which is world-renowned.
