8ir: I am twenty-two yeara old, and atreedy
exiled foreve* from my eountry. Four yeam ago
I waa a atudent in a nnlveraity in oae of tbe
fcrgeet eitiea of Buaaia. In American univerei
Ulee, I underetand, it ia the euatom for two young
men to ? chum* together. In Bnaaia we are not
ao rieh, aad three or four oontribute toward tbe
eommon axpenaea. I waa one of a group of
four. One of theae four waa. unknown to the
othera, a NihiUat. Thia oould not weU happen
here It ean readily happen in Buaaia, where
oue-half of tl-* population apiea on the other half.

Tha Bevolutioniate hnve their apie* in *? poliee,
the amy, the palace, and the bodyguard itaelf.
My brother had incurred the enmity of & com
mnndant of gendarmea. He Bad been arreated aa
a politleal euapect. and eent to Siberia. Sinoc
my brother'a arreat I had been unknoxvn to mv.
Klf nnder police aurVeillanoe, though I belonged
Z no Nihlliatio eircle, read no Nlhiltotic liter
ature. and had aoeepted my poor brother'a loae
aa one of thoee inevitable orueltiea to which the
Bnarian who ia not a noble ia bardened. One
erenittg when I came home from the theatre 1
found my room full of gendarmea, who arreatexl
me at onee for political crime. I was then and
there aearched. The police pulled to pieoea every
tlring ln the room that eould contain booka, pam
phleta or papera, but found nothing of a com
promiaing nature. I waa then put into a oovered
6_oeky. nnd takeu to priaon. I waa flrat taken
before the colonel of poliee. the man wboae
enmity exiled my brother. He aaked me who my
frienda were and what they were dolng. I
demanded the cauae of my arreat. No explanaUon
waa given me, and having nothing to confeae, l
had no information to give. I waa marohed off
at onee to my oell. to woit there ontil I waa pre,
pared to enlighten the Government on a aul.iect
Jf which I knew nothing. I learned months afW
ward that I had been arrested because a few
daya before written proclematione had been olr
eulatod by the Nihiliste. The handwriting
raaemblrd nline, and I had been aeen purchaaing
flfty poatage atampa at one of the Government
My een; ahall I ever forget it? It would be
onjuat for me to pretend that all the cells n
a Buaaian priaon were hke mine. I waa purpoaely
K_t to one of the worat that, bein? young
I might be frightened into a confeaaion. The
caok and the whip are not now u?d in Rubmb,
but there are civilized methoda of torture that
can oompel confeaaion aa aevere aa thoae of the
Inquiaition of Spoin or the aecret oouncila ef
Venice. I fclt when the door waa opened aa f
I were entering a grave. Pieture to yourself
a Kuare hole in the middle ot a. atone aeven
feeTlont. aeven feet widr. and aix feet hiph.
Tor onee I bleaaed my ahort atature. There waa
no window in thia hole but a glaaa ovrr the
door- no light but what came from the oil lorop
that hung outeide. An iron bedaide, fastened
to the waH cut ofl a foot or ao of apaoe from
my narrow hmlta. Everything ia made faat
that the deaperate may not commit auie.de. for
thoae who go insane in prison are not few. A
wooden table waa locked to the floor at one end
of the dea. and by ita aide waa fnst?ncd a woodrn
chair. On the wall hung an icon, a aicrrd
pioture of a aaint, to encourage devotion. I ?u.d
plenty of time for devotion. There waa no light
ftr booka ox the amall induatriee in which priaon
era employ themaelvea. I wna allowed to do no
work The gilded linea of that hateful flgure,
tbe only bright object in that, murky darkne**-,
burned themselvea into my brnin. I eould aee
them npeated in the empty air ln every corner
of my cell. and even now they come back to
me at timea when I am in total durkneaa.
On the bed waa a atraw mattreae and two
blanketa. That atraw waa chantpd but onee a
month. On entering the priaon I had been aub
mitted to a eearch beside which the aearch at
my room waa child'a play. I waa even mt.de
to open my mouth that the police might be
aaaured tliat there waa no dynamite concenled
there They disoovered nothing more formidable
than my tongue. I was allowed to retain my
underclothea, but inatead of my outer gHrmente
I reoeived a long woollen robe like a drea-ung
gown With thia for day uae and mv blanketa
by night I waa never cold. Who eould be cold
in an atmoephere like that of my cell? If the
oell waa warm enough, it waa hardly dry.
Water trieklrd constnntlv over the atone walls
and waked me by trickling on my faoe. After
a nomber of weeks ot thia aolitary conflnemmt
my nerxea became ao ahattered that when this
happened I would leap from my bed ln shuddering
agony In that datap cave I contracte<l an affeo

Thoae eyea, ahraya ahininj. ttroueh tbat hole
la tha wall, had a horrible fa*c_n_ition. Ihated
tbem. and yet I looked lor them. It la bad enough
to be aJone, bnt ta be eonflned wlth a peir ot
allcmt eyea is more horrible still. At flrat I ased
to aak tha offloer ot the guard what my offenee
waa and what would be my fate, bnt after ha vmg
been answered tbat I waa doomed to Slberia I
learned wiadom and waa silent, My only amuse
ment waa tbe lormatlon of varlons craiy p-ans
for escape. How I eeoaped mnaey I bardly know
myaelf. After I had been eonflned lor two months
I beard one day, toward evening, a tapplng
agalnst the wall of my cell. Thoae who bave
read Mr. Kennan's adndrable art-olee will know
at onee what it waa, bnt I did not gueae tbe
cauae for some time. Flneily I ffueeeed tbat
it waa sctno plan ol commnnioatloa from another
prisoner. and saeh it proved. I need not repeat
here what has been told so well elsewhere ol the
mode of talking by tapa. There la in nenrry
every eell ln some obseure oorner, observable
only by tha eyea of men who, like beta, have
grown nsed to the darknesa, a llttle plan scratohed
in the itone, if by nothlng,else somrtimee by a
broken tooth of a prisoner. In this plan the
letters are so arranged that by a combinatlon
of tapa it is unneoeasary to tap twenty-three times
for the twenty.third letter. Of oourse, at flrst.
before I discovered the oomponnd method, my
next door neighbor tapped onee for A, twlee for
B, and so on. When onoe I bad mastered thls
method of commnnlcatlon I felt no longer alone.
Tapplng ls forbldden, and tbe Government knows
that it exists, but tbe key or the tapping alphabet
they have not yet discovered, even through their
Tbe wall aeparating me from the next cell
was the wall behind my bed, so tbat when lyiug
on the bed I oould top the wall away from
the door without being noticed by the
gendarme. One unhappy evening I waa
discovered and the next day was sentenced for
pnnishment to conflnement in one of the towera
in the four oorners of the encloenre tbat walled
in the prison buildings. Theae towers were de
slgned not by men but by devils. Iron stairways
surround them, on which the sentrles stand day
and night. The towers are elreular and about
fifty feet in height. They contain from eight to
ten rooms, one on top of the other. I waa led
out of my cell through the oorridor and thenoe
aoross the open courtyard. The glnre of Ught
was tonnent to my darknesa-dullrd eyee, and I
had to cloee them. If the light waa a tonnent,
however, the air was a oordial, and gave me
6trength for what was to follow. I wob conducted
up the iron atairway to the fourth eell from the
ground. There was air enough there, but if my
flrst cell was amall this was o pill box. The
height was bnt four and a half feet, and it was
not long enough for me to 11. at full length, and
I am a short man. The diet was bread and water
trwice a day. In this torturing den I was kept
for three or lour weeks, till I lost my senses from
exhaustioh. Some time previous to this I had
begun to spit blood from my lunp. In spitr of
the pain of this place of conflnement, the chief
mode of punishment, it wm prefrrahle to the
mental and nervous tormenta of the dark hole in
which I was eonflned. The wlndow was grated
and painted white, but it did admit light, and there
waa plenty of freeh air.
From the tower I was taken, like a oorpae, to
the inflrmory. Tl.o bed. here were seperate and
there wns at least fresb air nnd better food. For
hreaktast there was white bread and oatmeal, for
dinner beef or some other good meat, and for
supper white bread. Sometimes article* were
aent to the sick prisoners by tbe oharitetie. I
fell heir to a handkerchlef wlth a coronet sent by
some noblo woman or other who Bympathizcd
with ub. Of course it was taken from mo when I
left the prison, and there was some excitement In
guessing who the donor wns. The physician who
inspr-cted us was a peraonal acquaintnnce of my
father's, and I saw tho trnrx in his eyos when ho
ri-me to me. Hut he could do nothiuK for me, for
the physicians themselvea are watched at every
momrnt by tho gendarmes, and the ali_-Mo.it sus
pieion of IjailBliama w-ith the prisoners is foh
lowed by heavy punishment. After two weeks of
hospitul life I wus hiittieiently recovored to be
taken before tho outhorities for the ? doprosa,"
oflicial exnmination, and then for the lirst Ume I
learned the nature of my crime.
I was too weak to wwlk, nnd was earri'd to the
examination-room. It was hunK with black, like
the hall of the lnquhition. Behind lha t-ible
covercd with blaek sat the General of I'olice, the
Minister of Justice, tho St-?tc Attorney and a
seo.retary wlth the protocols. I wns otrried to
the prisonen' cnge and made to stand while the
eharge agalnst me was read, though I was mercl
fully allowed to sit when tho qoestions were
askod. ' A g?ndnrme, with revolver loaded, atood
on each aido of me, and two more guurded tht
enlTance. The General of Pollco ask_d the queo
tlons and tlio attorney wroto down tho answers
At flrst I declalmed against tho Cr.iir aiul his
government, but tho platol barreb stopped tliut.
I wns then askoil if I helonged to any socioty, and
nnmce of my friends nnd what thoy had in view.
I answerw' that I did belong to such it Boeicty, and
that its intention wns to klll tlie Cznr und drstroy
the Government. Tlio namoa of my frienda 1 de
chned to diacloso in St. Petcrsburg, but I promiaod
to do so if sent to Odesea, where, I anid, I need not
tet-r aBsassination. All tho offlcers roso when I told
theae lies, and promised me evorytiiing under
lleaven if I woukl disclose the ruimes then nnd
there; but I stuck to my purposc. At flrst they
tried to make me sign my tostimony without. read?
lng lt, but I declincd to fdgn till I was shown all
tliat liad been WTitten, and then with great dlfli
culty, so weak was I, I signed my name This
fulse testimony was part of a plnn of escape. In
spite of constant watchlng, sohtory conflnement,
and stonc walls, I had had word from my friendH,
and my escape in all its details was planned bofore
I had left the prison.
After my cxamination I was taken baek to the
inflrmary, and aa it w-as aupposed that 1 was gning
to aid our paternal government by lietraylng my
friends I was fed on the best of fare. Roasted
fowls nnd sound wine came to my toblc instea<l
of sour soup aud black hread. I kept up an exhi
bition of hickness as long as potsihlo. in order
to reoeive this life-giving regimen. but at the
end of three weeks I wns uuuhlc to shani any long?
er und was pronoui-ced well enough to move.
Sinee my cxamination I luul got baek my own
ci'diics, und it waa in them without chains that I
wub imt into a covered drosky and taken to the
railrond station. A squodron of cavalry surroiind
ed the vehlcle. Tlicre wns a gendarme on the
drivcr's seat beside the lse_atah.il and two with
iue inside. Tho station wus clcnroil of people, and
a crowd collected on the outside, Ixdieving
that 1 had attomptcd to iisaiasinate tho Cznr.
Tlirough a double llle of goiidarn.eB I was con
du.ted to a s|>eoiiil car on tiie expresTs train. Fe-Jple
in tho crowd throw mo cigarettea, but most of
theae wcre kept by my guards. At luat thc train
itarted and we wcre fairly on our way, tl.e guards
to Odcasa and I to freedom.
In tlie rarriago im tlie rear wore two
friends of mine. The escape had been arranged
to tuke phice after leavlng a certain station. I
wus Xo be warned which by bearlng at tho station
previous the name of that station called loudly aa
lf to some tourist three times under my window.
Flnally the slgnal came, and at the next etopping
place I was in a tingle of excitement. The train
?topped, and aa usual at the lurge atopplng placea
on* of my three guards left tho carriage and re
tunu-d with a big urn of toa. Aa usual, alao, thoy
offered me a dnnk, but I declin-ed. They all
croaaed themselvea and soon flnisbed the tea. The
train started, aad In flve mtsatea my threa gen

friend, who alao leaped from tha traln. He
apralnad hia enkle badly. To oeve* Ua -fcnoks he
had bought a ttpket only half ??y to Odeaaa, aod
bad bribed tha eonduotor to kt him ride further?
a practlce eommoa enough in Buaaia. When.
therrfore, tha police tried to naoertain if any of
tbe poaaengera who had bought ticketa for Odeaaa
had left the traln before reaehlng that place, there
waa no miBing t ioket and no Odeaaa paaaonger to
be aooounted for. MaWnf for tbe woode. W?
atruggled to the flrat little town and there hired
a Idbitka and weat atraight to Odeaaa, aa the place
of all othera where we were the leeet likely to be
looked for. . ," ... .- ; _,.,_

or two all the region etongthe line of the rail?
road on which I had uavelied waa placerded with
effera of a reward of 2,000 roublea for information
that would lead to my capture, At that time the
unfortunate Jewa inOdeaea were undergoing that
atrance peraeeuUon that attraoted tha attention
of thooiviliaed world. . Moba formed ln theatreeta
largely of etudanta. I aaw a Coaaaok atnke with

Idiot and rode hia horae at me. Ihen I remembeml
what ln my exelt-rment I had forgotten, that I had
about me the namea of people who would glve me
asaistanee, and considerable correapondence that
would inanre the arreat of aome of my friends.
I ran like a hare down the atreet but four feet
