Yesterday, “ Black Friday,” in Lodz,
surpassed all the horrors of “ Red Sun

not yet possible to ascertain the exact
number of the victims, estimates place
the killed and wounded as high as
2 , 000 .
The troubles h£re were initiated by
the Social Democrats and Jewish Bund,
who determined to avenge their com

passed off quietly, but during the night
workmen attacked the patrols. In this
fighting two officers and seven Cossacks
w§xe killed. One of the latter was
shot by a girl of 13 years.
Friday was a day of terror. The city
was given up to bloodshed.
and fierce street fighting prevailed all
day. Barricades were hurriedly con
structed in the Jewish quarter at dawn.
Men climbed to the roofs of houses,
cutting telephone and telegraph wires
to use for entanglements in the streets,
while others cut down telegraph poles
and used them in strengthening their
barricades which already had been con
structed and in building others.
Early in the day two bombs were
thrown from the crowd into the bar
racks, killing or wounding 20 soldiers.
