I is So Fully Aroused That the Pres

Insufficient to Stop Firing From
Lodz, By Cable.-Since the arrival of
re-inforcements actual fighting in the
city has stopped, but the outbreak is
by no means quelled, and fresh collis
ions are expected momentarialy.
The city resembles a shambles and
the terrible scenes of the last two days
will never be wiped from the memory
of the Polish people.
The fighting spirit of the people is
fully aroused. They have tasted blood
and want more. Certainly the revo
lutionary spirit is abroad and it re
mains to be seen whether military
measures will have the same effect as
Saturday at Baluty, a suburb of Lodz,
four Cossacks were killed and sixteen
others wounded by a bomb which was
thrown into the barracks. Twenty of
their horses were killed.
Occasional volleys are stilled fired by
the police or gendarmes in response to
shots from houses.
The soldiers are showing what ap
pears to be wanton cruelty. Late in
the afternoon they shot and killed two
women-a mother and her daughter.
The funerals of victims of the 'shoot
ing of Thursday and Friday took place
surreptitiously in various outlying vil
lages. It is quite impossible to give the
exact number of killed and wounded, as
reports vary according to the quarter
from which they are obtained. Cer
tainly the killed number more than
a hundred, and the wounded five times
as many. An official reports says that
the number of casualities was largely
increased by the neglpect of persons to
remain Indoors, and the others who in
sisted on looking out of doors and win
dows when the volleys were being fired
upon the rioters by the soldiers. Resi
dents of the city say that they receiv
ed no orders to remain indoors.
