Russian Struggle In the rocinc Monthly appears an
for freedom editoral by William II. Galvani which
wo herewith give as clearly selling forth the Russian situation.
Never before has ofiicial Russia been so terribly exposed as in
these history-making days. Never before, in these days of the
Twentieth Century , has any governing power been held up to
the gaze of the world as the Despotism of the North. Surely a
spectre so brutal, so ghastly and so hideous has never, since the
close of the Dark Ages, challenged the attention of tho civilized
world. Indeed, it is doubtful as to whether, in the gloomiest pe
riod of the Dark Ages, any subdivision of the human family ever
suffered so terribly from the yoke imposed by Tyranny, Impost
ure and Privilege, as the people in the Empire of the Czar. Nor
have civil, military, and priestly arrogance and usurpations ever
transformed any land into such u scene of dissension, of hatred, of
presecution. and of blood, as tho twin monster of statecraft and
priestcraft in the Holy Russian Empire. And all this was delib
erately planned and cruelly executed with but one aim in viow
namely that the unlimited power of the governing autocracy
should not slip out from its bloody hands.
The first effort for constitutional rights was made when Nicholas
I. announced his own accession, in December, 1825. This organiz
ed effort was made by the Decembrists, who took advantage of the
prevailing perplexity of opinion during the days of the interreg
num, when the people were undecided on the question of aucces
sion. According to the laws of primogeniture, the successor of
Alexander I. should have been Constantine, the eldest of his broth
ers. But Constantine renounced tho crown in order to marry the
Countess Groudsinka, and hence. Nicholas, the third son of Paul,
became Emperor-PonriiT of all the Russias. The revolt at his
accession was led by a poet, Rdeyeff, head of the Society of the
North, and Pestel, head of the Society of the South. The result of
the first struggle for freedom in Russia was tho ghaftly execution
of Pestel, Rileyeff, Monravieff-Apostol, Bestuzheff-Riumin, and Ka
kovsky, while about one hundred young men, representing the
flower of Russian intelligence, were exiled to Siberia. Inspired by
the lives of those who died for liberty in Russia, a number of
'young men were led to take the "Hannibal Oath" of avenging the
memory of those forerunners of freedom in the land of the Czars,
and from this small band the work continued uninterruptedly to
this day. Their activity, however, was never so systematic and so
far-reachiug as it has been during the last thirty years of per
sistent effort and heroic sacrifice.
The Manchurian adventure, with its vast system of railway, con
slruction, fortifications, town building, and still vaster system of
ofiicial theft for.il is estimated that about three-fourths of all the
millions expended were stolen by the bureaucrats in charge
paved the way for tho memorable Russo-Japanese conQit with all
its dire consequences to the organized brigandage presided over
by His Imperial Majesty, Nicholas Alexandrovitch, Emperor and
Autocrat of all the Russias, King of Poland, Grand Duke of Fin-
lajd, etc., etc., etc. The terrible disaster in the Far East and the
gathering storm at home led the autocracy to a new scheme of
. perjury and deception, in order to create some enthusiasm .and
unification of an outraged people whereby their endless trials and
misfortunes might be met in a spirit of resignation. The. series
of edicts, rescripts, manifestos, etc., purporting to give projects
for commissions to provide sham assemblies to carry out sham re
forms, failed entii-ely to" stem the tide of the general revolt. A
hurried peace was arranged, but that, too, with no effeco upon the
approaching storm. The revolt throughout the Empire of the Czar
nnaiiy DroKeout, and with what results wo all know: the autocracy
yielded the franchise 'was extended, the legislative power was
conceded to the assembly, amnesty to many of the political pris
oners granted, and if the program is at all honestly carried out, it
may lead to a regeneration of Russia. And yet all that was grant
ed repesents no more than what the Executive Committee of the
revolutionary party asked of Alexauder III., ten days after the
assassination or Alexander 11. How much happier and more nros
perous Russia might have been had those concessions been made
at that time!
It is impossible to conclude this brief review of Russia's strug
gle for freedom without expressing the highest possible admin.
tion for the remarkable way in which this great upheval had been
planned and brought about. Though the struggle throughout its
History Had cost so many sacrifices, yet the final consummation
was so well arranged by a system of general strikes that it might
havo been fully accomplished without any sacrifices whatever. As
usual, however, the bureaucracy in different parts of the Empire
conciuaea on a carnival oi crime, and not only nave they allowed
full swing to the vicious and criminal of whom there are so many
in modern cities, but these ollice-holding criminals have them
selves participated in the general looting, and have taken no means
whatever to check the bloody crimes which so horrified the whole
Graft. At a former meeting of the board of supervisors bills
ior nve aonara each, were presented by tne Inter Island Steam
Ship Company for carrying deck passenger from liana to Kahului
irom Kahului to liana and from Pukoo Malokai to Honolulu.
xs iH rtguiar cnaige is out two uoiiars ior deck passengers
me Dins were returned ior correction
In the company s letter of the 19th of Dec. addressed to the
county clerk the following startling statement is made. "The
charge of five dollars for deck passengers from Pukoo to Honolulu
is correct, being the regular charge which the Territorial Govern
ment pays for officers and prisoners."
In plain luiglish this means that any individual may travel for
two dollars deck.'passage but when tho people's money is to pay the
oiuveuuu an extra ihljo item oi one nunurou and ntty per cent
The board of supervisors returned the bills and will refuse tt
stand for any such graft.
