St. Petersburg, March 9.-The trial
of Nicholas Tschaikovsky and Madame
Breshkovskaya on the charge of revo
lutionary conspiracy ' ended today with
the acquittal of Tscbaikoveky and the
comparatively mild sentence . of exile
Imposed upon -Madame Breshkovskaya.
r While Madame - Breshkovskaya' s
sentence provides ' a perpetual exile,
she escaped - hard--' iatoor, -which tier
counsel consider a great victory.
A handful of friends surrounded the
prisoners, showering congratulations
upon them and exchanging kisses in
typical Russian fashion. The guards
allowed the woman half an hour with
her friends before taking -fcer to the
detention prison, where she will await
The collapse of the prosecution's
case was due to the utter discrediting
of Pateuk, who himself is serving a
life term for murder and other crimes,
and the failure of the crown to pre
sent other witnesses who could con
nect Tscha-ivosky and Madame Bresh
kovskaya. with revolutionary activity
as charged in the indictment. The
woman,' however, had pleaded- guilty to
being a social revolutionist. The jurors
found that the business records intro
duced amply accounted for Tschaikov
skys presence in Russia.
Tschaikovsky will leave here in three
weeks for England. Madame Breeh-i

perience of others, will be reasonably
comfortable, if money is forthcoming

Promise of Help
INJECTED NEW LIFE INTO GEN
ERAL STRIKE MOVEMENT.
Talked of by Philadelphia Strike Lead
ers Open Air Mass Meeting in Bass
ball Park Today Mors Cars Moving
Philadelphia, March g.-Promiae of
help from without and development of
strength in it3 own field which ap
peared to take even its most confident
leaders by surprise injected new life
into the Philadelphia general sympa-
tnetlc strike movement today.
A Tabor campaign which yesterday
gave every ign of waning force re
ceived its strongest impetus today
from the action of the state federation
of labor convention in Newcastle in
1 declaring that a .state-wide and even
nation-wide" tieup of industry would
not be too great a price to pay if
necessary to insure success to the lo
cal c use.' - . -
Added to this came the revelation
that the. union labor movement in sym
pathy with the striking employes of
tne Philadelphia-Rapid Transit com
pany was strong -enough to invade
what was supposed to be a secure cita
del of the opposing forces and open an
admittedly wide breach.
.2,000 Locomotive .Workers Quit.,
The success of the strike leaders in
inducing something over 1,000 employes
of the -oaldwin Locomotive works to
walk out today,, following the early
morning desertion of possibly as many
more, was the most striking develop
ment of the day in the local situation.
This alone was enough to cause the
committee of ten in charge of the gen
eral strike to regard- this as their most
successful day. Their claim that
nearly six thousand men of the Bald
win plant, which- is an open shop and
had hitherto resisted strike pressure,
was by no means admitted by the com
pany management, which cut the figure
more than half.
Trouble Expected Today at Open Air
. Mass Meeting."
Possible trouble was indicated, by
the announcement of the strikers'
committee that it. would hold an open
air mass -meeting- in the--National
league baseball park tomorrow noon. ;
The police authorities declared that
the meeting would not ' be permitted,
but following this declaration the. men
reiterated- their intention of holding it
as scheduled, claiming ;- the . right of
peaceful assemblage and exercise of
free speech at a meeting on enclosed
private property , as within their con
stitutional rights. Results of the in
dicated clash are awaited with' some
little -trepidation. The strikers declare
their meeting will toe orderly however,
and that there -wlH be no. justU cause
No Distui banco of Consequence Yos
v - . terday.
The day was without disturbances of
consequence and up to a late hour to
night the only- outbreak had been A
minor disturbance or two in the Ken
sington -shop district. No one was re
ported injured. :r
- Cars Mora Largely Patronized.
The street car company slightly in
creased the number of cars in service
and the lines in the business and resi
dence districts were apparently more
largely patronized than on any day
since the strike began.
A committee representing the United
Business Men's league in' the northeast
district waited upon President Kruger
of the Rapid Transit company and re- J
quested him not to run cars in the
Kensington district after nightfall, so
as to avoid danger to life and proper
ty in that territory. President Kruger
declined to grant the request, an
nouncing his determination to run the
cars of the company wherever ' it was
possible to do so at any cost.
No Signs of Strike in Business District
An important acquisition to the
ranks of. the strikers was announced
tonight from Camden, N. J., where
1,500 carpenters went out. About the
same- number quit work at suburban
points along the Pennsylvania rail
road's main line and the men declared
that if necessary 2,600 more carpen
ters -would' be called out in Montgom
ery county, next adjacent to Philadel
phia, tomorrow. In the business dis
trict of the city today there were no
signs of the strige. To all appearances
the usual life of the community went
on there undisturbed.

for a military liighway between Fort

with labor from the military prison at
Fort Leavenworth. Opposition was
expressed to having the government
take part in the building of any state
Representative Habeon of Alabama
produced an amendment providing for
a division -of the cost of roads between
the government and the states. when
ever the secretary of war had ap
proved plans for them as necessary.
"There should toe some great plan
drawn up," said Mr. Hobson. "for the
construction of roads -in the United
States under a single harmonious sys
tem. The roads of. Alabama should fit
into those of the adjoining states in
every direction." '
Mr. Payne of New York,' the re
publican' floor leader, suggested that
this plan to -build roads all over the
United States was comparable only
to the Alabaman's " contention ' for a.
greater navy. 'Hn' declared -it would
bankrupt the United .States to enter
upon such a policy.
" "My amendment - provides that' the
United States shall pay but one-half,"
suggested Mr.' Hobson.
"Ten per cent; of it would cost more
than your war with Japan would cost'
in' a thousand years," shouted Mr.
Payne." . . .
- Mr. Hobson merely smiled In - re
ply. "Deliver the country -from-tho Im
agination of the gentleman who'comes
here from Alabama.", concluded . Mr.
Payne, as he sat down amid a roar of
laughter. " .
