THE CAUSE 0F
Oppression, Bad Crops and Low Wages Responsible for
Russia's Domestic Difficulties Business of the Coun
try Ruined by Strikes and Ravages of War Riots
and Disorder Prevalent in the Country Districts.
Affairs in Poland are in a desper
ate st.te of unrest and uncertainty,
says Josef Zinovteff in the Wash
ington (I). C.) Star, and just how
bad they arc or may become Inter
nobody knows. In Warsaw any
thing may happen. The recent
attempt to dynamite IJaron Nolkcn,
the Warsaw chief of police, struck
terror to the hearts of the authori
ties, who regard it only as n fust
step in the direction of riots com
pared wilhh which the sauginary
outbreaks of last January were
Their fears are well grounded,
for the leaders of the 1'olish social
istic revolutionary party, who or
ganized the recent strikes, have de
cided on drastic methods. A special
committee sitting in Warsaw has
marked the names of officials who are
to be assassinated. Dynamite bombs
and pistols will be the chief wea
pons to be used. In the last few
months 120,000 revolvers of P'ng
lish manufacture have been smug
gled into Poland.
There now have been strikes in
all the large centers and towns of
Russian Poland, and some of these
strikes are still going on. In the
country the peasants are everywhere
agitating for improved conditions
of life, and as they number nearly
four-fi'ths of the whole pop
ulation of Russian Poland, their
movements are exciting the liveliest
apprehension of the authorities.
Disorder prevails throughtout Po
land in every branch of trade and
industry, and the business life of
the country is almost at n standstill.
This unfortunate state of affairs
is due to various causes. Among
them are bad harvests, low wages,
long hours of labor, oppression
from petty officials, the war in the
far east, and last, but not least, the
fears of further mobilization. But
the bloody riots and conflicts be
tween the military and the people
which disgraced Warsaw at the end
of last January were precipitated by
the similar happenings at St. Peters
burg. The Warsaw disturbances
which marked the beginning of
the troubles in Poland constitute a
lasting and burning disgrace to the
Russian authorities, civil and mili
tary alike. They were begun by
irresponsible schoolboys and contin
ued by the "Hooligan" element of
the city. The police could have
nipped them in the bud had they
wished to do so, but purposely de
sisted and the consequence was a
three days' insurrection such as
Warsaw had not experienced since
the revolution of 1863.
A general strike hnd btokcu out
in Warsaw, but the utmost quiet
and order prevailed. The strikers
maintained a perfectly correct atti
tude, seeking only by peaceable
persuasion to get the shopkeepers
to close their business houses in
sympathy with the strike. There
was no breach of the peace until one
morning a crowd of schoolboys
started to break the street lamps in
a thoroughly systematic fashion.
1 he police only looked on with
amused indifference, and the boys
had a beautiful time. Later, how
ever, the "Hooligans" and crimi
nals of the city, some 5,000 in num
ber, began to emerge from their
haunts and started to pillage and
plunder shops and store and dwell
ings, liven then the police refrain
ed from interference until the af
fair assumed alarming dimensions.
Then the military were summon
ed in hot haste, and infantry, artil
lery and brutal Cossacks started in
with fierce eagerness to clear the
streets and put down the riot
ing. They spared neither man, wo
man nor child. The crowds, which
included many quiet and inoffensive
ciiixei s attracted there only by curi
osity, were ruthlessly shot or sa
bered by the cavalry. Many liuu-
1 dreds of men and women were ar-
rested. In two days order was res
tored, when the authorities commit
ted a crime which it will be long be
fore the citizens of Warsaw forget
or forgive. They let loose upen the
city a regiment of hussats, picked
men, belonging to a body guard of
Uncontrolled by officers or sub
officers, these mounted ruffians
swept through the streets of the
city, shooting, slashing, cutting,
riding down every body thev met.
Nobody was safe fiom their vio
lence. Innocent passcrsby and lit
tle children who sought refuge in
shops and doorways fell before their
swords. Revolting talcs arc cur
rent of their bloody deeds. A cre
dible witness, who visited two hos
pitals, declared that it was pitablc
to see the number ol young child
ren brought into the wards, muti
lated by the sabers of these hussars.
When at last these uniformed butch
ers had been withdrawn the au
thorities were able to take stock of
The official list of dead contained
400 names. As for the wounded,
their number could not be ascertain
ed, and indeed will never be known.
The wounded were cruelly beaten
in the prisons by the infuriated po
lice and soldiers. Dark tales are
told of men and women being flog
ged to death and their bodies bur
ied within the precincts of the jails.
A great general strike followed
this reign of terror. Trade after
trade and industry after industry
was drawn into the movement. One
day the shoemakers struck, and on
the next the bank clerks, domestic
servants and policemen, railway
men and tramway drivers and con
ductors, gas men and iron moldcrs,
bookkeepers and street sweepers,
all joindd the army of strikers.
Some strikes lasted only a few min
utes, others continued for weeks.
Now nearly all are over, but they
have been settled upon a false basis
and peace cannot last long. The
employers gave in all along the line
and . granted the strikers higher
wagos, shorter hours and almost
every other concession they de
manded. The railway employes
got a nine-hour day and the bank
clerks are to have a month's holiday
every year. No demand seemed
too unreasonable to be granted.
Hut, with the business of the coun
try almost ruined by the war, how
is it possible for merchants and
manufacturers to continue such ex
traordinary concessions for any
length of time? It is evident that
they only yielded to obtain peace,
but it is certain that new and more
serious troubles are not far off. Al
ready there are ominous signs ot
new strikes. In some instances
the employers have found that the
new labor basis is impossible, while
in other cases the dread of mobili
zation is causing the workers to
come out of the factories.
Hut, although from the labor
standpoint the cities and towns are
quieter, the country districts arc
seething with troubles. In every
direction the peasants are striking.
Higher wages, shorter hours, past
ure and forest rights, ami the use of
Polish language instead of the
Russian in village affairs these are
among the varied demands of the
7,000,000 peasants in Poland.
Hitherto they have kept quiet,
much to the relief of the authorities.
But socialistic ngitators have been
busy and their efforts have met
with success. The peasant is slow
to move, but once started it is diffi
cult to hold him back. The Rus
sian authorities realize this, and are
much more concerned over the
present agitation than over all the
ordinary labor strikes which have
yet taken place.
Of all the peasants' demands, the
most important relates to the lang
uage question. The peasants have
discovered thru there Is nothing In
the law Against the use of Polish
in local government afTairs, and
they bitlctly resent the action of the
petty Russian officials in forcing
their language upon them to the
exclusion of the peasants' mother
tongue. Only the other day a
peasant was waiting his turn in a
village post office, and hearing that
the official at the window was un
able to give a customer change,
volunteered to lend him some small
coins. The official whom he was
trying to oblige promptly fined him
three roubles ($1.50) for speaking
Polish in a government office. The
peasant felt none the less aggrieved
when he remembered that the afore
said fine would go into the pocket
of the official. Such an incident is
by no means uncommon and does
not tend to promote pleasant rela
tions between the peasants and the
Russian local official world.
