J-Mitor Critic: Droiiplug Into the Arling
ton Hole few nights ago my attention
was attracted at tbrnews"-sliilid by n little
book entitled "The New Ilia In llussla,"
liy (,'otonel Chnilcs A. do Arnaiul. 1 pur
efui'eil tho buul: ami read it with such
keen interest' and surprise nt tlio revela
tions therein that I should bo glad If you
would give spate lu Tin: Cnnic foru low
remarks from menu tho Mibjcct treated of
by Ibis work. I have been a constant reader
ol'Tiii: CniTic for many yearn, anil have
always found It au.xlous to do justice (did
to give the truth about every puliliu mailer
but also bold anil fearless in doing that
lustlittuiul giving that truth. The work
in question removed many impressions
fioin my. mind which 1 had received of
lateycars about llussla, and doubtless thero
are many other porsons who, In this mut
ter, are in the same situation as myself.
A few ycaningo I had mude upmy mind
to go to ltusnia and spend soino years
tlicio in a business undertaking which
would have lesiiltcdlu financial iiilv.iiu
ageto myself and as-oeiutes. .fust about
tho time, however, that I was rend)-' to
make llnal arrangements for my iirop wed
undertaking Jlr. Oeorgo Kennnn'u articles
on the nilminlslratloii nt Itussbiiiji'.-lke
nnd the brutal, despotic and liifamnus
manner lu wlilth thoolllclnlsof that em
pire treated tho ocoplo begun to iijiti-ar.ui
the "Ccnturv Jiugtilne." I re-nl them
carefully, believed their statements nud
abanilontd nil idea of my KuMiau enter
prise. 1 was unwilling to v!-lt and do bushics
in a (ouutty wheic the I'.dminislr.itloti of
Jusllco was a nuttter entirely within tlio
discretion of a brutal and corrupt bureau
cracy. 1 was afraid to tru-t my llfo or
my money in a country where law seemed
to lie only the whim of tyrannical offi
cials, and where a man was liable, nt the
caprice of a policeman, to bo torn from
his bed at midnight aud hurried oil',
without law or justice, to n frozen wilder
ness thousands of miles away to bo
eternally buried thero amid nameless and
indc.-crlbnblo horrors. Mo 1 gave up my
proposed journey lo tho Czar's dominions.
lint nftcr rending Colonel doArnaud's
woik, "The New lira In Uusshi," I have
experienced a great change of opinion.
That book has mado mo revise my jndg.
incut. I begin to think I wits very credu
lous and unsuspecting to nccejit Jlr, Ken
nan'd assertions without further examina
tion. Colonel dc Ainaud, In his work,
carefully examines Mr. Kennan's asser
tions and in a brief space sil lucidly and
forcibly shows their extreme improbabil
ity, uud further, by citing facts that tho
reader ruunot dispute, so shatters Jlr.
Kennan's storletf of ltusslan cruelty 'anil
despotism that no man can read "The
New lira In llussla" without entertaining
thcgiiixest doubts of the Irnth of Jlr.
Kennan's alleged facts.
The whole matter Is a x-cry serious one,
both from n sentimental und from a
biislncs.s.polntof vloiv. Tho commercial
relations between Hussln and the United
Ptates tip to the dato of .Mr. Kennan's arti
,tlcs were of the friendliest character and
were dex eloping with nmuiing rapidity.
No other .foreigners were leceivcd so
win inly and hospitably In ltussia as
Americans. In fact, llussla was tho only
friend wo had in tho world. American
taplial, energy and brains were eagerly
w elcoincd in tho Jluscqvito empire. That
country opcjied a field to us of incalcula
ble x-aluo in the extension und tlcveloii-
mcui oi misincss. mo puoucatioi) ot
Kennuii'n articles had tho effect of greatly
repressing those triciidlv'fecllngs., Many
men, like myself, abstained from going to
ltussia from absolute fear for their lives
and means. Am) the Itusslaus naturally
grew more reserved and fess demonstra
tive in their welcome to Americans,
Novv, sir, Jlr. Kcnnnu, since tlio publi
cation of Colonel doArnaud's work, owes
n duty both to himself and to his country,
to answer it and prove that his assertions
nro true. Culonil do Aruiiud says they
uro not, and proceeds to prove it. Ho the
niutttr rests in u niitsucu. i.uuer ivoir
nan's stntimcnts mo true or they aro fatso.
If they nro true then ho is in
to show where Colonel doArnaud's sttite-
luents aro false. If they aro falso then
he Mauds convicted before the world, cither
of possessing a childishly weak and uu-
rciiitDio judgment or oi misrepresenting
facts. Ono tiling Is clour, Colonel do Ar
naiid lias mado ft absolutely necessary for
Jlr. Kcnmin to come out and refute tho
former's positions, or to rest convicted ns
a slanderer of a friendly government.

Using tha full capacity of tho steam pump
