St. Petersburg, Nov. 19. The pop
ulation of Russia was estimated at
about 73.000,000 In 1SG1. the year of the
emancipation of the serfs. It Is now
calculated to be over 136,000,000. accord
Ing to a statement published by tha
ministry of finance. This estimate U
obtained by adding tho calculated an'
mini excess of bit tin over deaths, which
Is certainly 2,000,000 to the total of
120.000.000 given by tV census of Jan
uary 28, 1897, with h was 120,100,000
without (he fir.r.nl Duchy (if Finland or
129,000.000 Including Finland. The Sla
vic population is 71 per cent of tli'
whole, Russians alone numbering S'j.
000,000 or CC pir fiit. and the poln
8.060.000 or 7 per c nt. The total Fin
nish population I over 0,000.000 ami
tho Llthunlans nlmost reach the same
figure, numbering 5.000,000. Various
Turkish peoples of the Volga, the Cri
mea, the Caucasus anil Siberia number
11,000,000 or nbout 9 per cent of tin
whole. There arc 4.000,000 Hcbrows and
about a million pcisons of German
descent or birth.
It has so long been the fashion to
describe tho land of the Czar as "dark
est Russia" 0 "starving Russia" that
most people hive difficulty In rcallzln3
that there has been any progress In
tho empire, during the last forty yens
except In population. An observer
who has open ces is fairly overwhelm
ed with evidences of a forward move
ment along a thousand lines. Since a
gloomier view Is maintained stubborn
ly, In spite of tho immense rallwuy
constructions of recent yearB, It may
be worth while to Indicate a few of tho
numerous minor Indications of quick
ened life which havo come to hand un
sought and to mention some of tho er
roneous Impressions which a residence
Tnko tho simple, facts of tho climate.
One Is accustomed to think of St. Pe
tersburg as hard frozen moro than half
tho year, with tho thermometer usu
ally 30 and 10 degrees below zero. Por
sons who think nothing of n winter In
St. Paul, Duluth or Canada return
from a short Islt to Russia with tho
most exaggerated notions of tho Inten
sity of Its winter. The Russians are
themselves to blamo for this. Tho
houses are constructed with double
windows, which are rarely opened ex
cept In midsummer nnd nro hermeti
cally sealed except for small airhole),
which, In the windows of the better
class of houses, nro opened only onco
a day. The windows were all scaled
up two months ago, nnd, In spite of the
fact that tho thermometer has register
ed freezing weather only two or tlneo
days of tho present autumn and winter.
Your correspondent has seen native
Russians run from a room where tlio
window was opned for a moment as
from a pestilence. That this is an un
usually mild fall Is not asserted hen-.
Winter terrors vanish upon closer In
spection. Col. Hofloway, the consul
general of the United States, who has
lived here three years, has never
known tho thermometer to register
below 10 to 12 degrees of cold, and Is
comfortable In the consulate, with no
more clothing than he wore In his In
Many other Impressions havo no
more secure foundation. They can of
ten bo traced to tho Influence of resi
dents whose Ideas became fixed twenty
or thirty years ago. A young man who
spent a few weeks here last summer In
company with ono of these pesslmle
tic authorities, described St. Peters
burg as a dreary, dirty, uninteresting
ono and two story sort of town which
resembled a mushrom prairie city in
the early days of the Western plains.
Ho had simply looked through anoth
er man's blue spectacles. It has proved
the same with information about cer
tain restrictive regulations. One was
warned against carrying books In ono'fl
baggage since the police would attempt
to read them nil and would probably
"caviar" blot out with an Impenetra
ble Ink, any passages which they did
not understand. The fact Is tho poliro
did not read the titles of any book.!,
in the luggage of a single passcngT
tho day your correspondent crossed tho
frontier. Wnrnlngs were given by a
Russian Journalist, whose active work
was finished many years ago and who
has been the adviser of numerous cor
respondents nnd writers from fibroid,
that tho supervision of political tele
grntnB was so strict that It was best not
to touch upon politics nt all. Your cor
respondent found foreign newspapers
filled with the most varied criticism if
Russian affairs freely admitted und
Tho olHel.il whov) duty It Is to pavs
upon political telegrams sent abroad
was found to be a pleasant, well In
formed polished gentleman, whoso blue
pencil Is not In evident as much as is
One usually comes to Russia w 1th lli
most exaggerated expectations of trou
ble nnd vexation on nicoutn of pasi
port regulations. With the exception
o' having to get one'H passport vised
by n Russian Consul (lencral abroad
before crossing the frontier, the polled
requirements nro In reality far IeB
onerous thnn those of Germany, where
ono usually appears at the police sta
tion In person If one wishes to stay
moro than n week or two.. In St. IV.
tcrsburg tho passport Is delivered to
the hotel proprietor who sends It to
the police. It Is returned endorsed
with n new stamp, for one must pay
a small fee. The police look to the
hotel proprietor or to the doorkeepers
of private houses for the proper en
forcement of their regulations. One
could accumulate Instances of this
kind Indefinitely. Without opening
large subjects, a few facts, in them
selves perhaps petty, will suffice to
show that tho Idea that Russia Is stag
nant Is equally erroneous.

upon a desired Increase In tourist traffic to the Islands, a few remarks
from a tourist may assist In accounting for tome decrease In tra
vel this way.
it has been my fortune to spent n largo part of tho lust flvo years
in travel. In tho smoking room of many bteatners I havo heard tho

official discourtesy uro given Instance after Instance. Of the truth
of Incidents given or tho general sweeping assertion that a tourist
recently uiado "that Hawaii niut Naples live by skinning the tour

singular confirmation In twenty-fuur hours.

had friends waiting, nil had but little lime to spend and wanted
to make the must of daylight. Hut a very nlllclous and exceedingly
discourteous customs nlllclal Unit guard over tho plank and an
nounced that no ono went ashore until the mall w.ih off. Hotel agents,
etc. came on promiscuously an 1 for four minutes by the walcli the
