Whether Russia is facing a revolution

to their intention to march to the Winter
palace and present their petition to the
Czar, and the government is resolved to
prevent the demonstration.
Troops poured into St. Petersburg all

at the palace square. Ail industries in the
capital have been suspended. Butchers

CROKER IN ALTO SMASH.

Car Pins Young Sportsman Beneath
Waves of Ormond Beach.
[BT TELEGRAPH TO THE TKIBV.NE.]
Daytona, Fla.. Jan. '21.— Frank 11. Croker, of
Xew-York, son of Richard Croker, was severely
injured this afternoon in an automobile accident
on the beach. His driver, Victor Ravel, of Xew-
York, was killed instantly. M. F. Stanley, a vis
itor here, propelling a motor cycle chair car,
which caused the accident, had both legs broken.
Proker's 75-horsepower Simplex rolled over and
down the sand into the ocean, and when It
stopped it whs half submerged In waur. Had
( rolter not been pulled out from under the car
he would probably have drowned.
The upset occurred about two miles this side
of Ormond. Croker was upeedlne his car north
ward, driving himself, when he saw, far ahead,
the man propelling the motor chair car. Croker
tried to turn out, but the cyclist finally shot
sideways to the ripht. directly In front of the
automobile. Croker made a mighty effort to
turn, but at that ruomeat tba damp sand g
his wheel, wrenching one of the tires, and the
car turned sharply and then flopped sideways,
turning over until it reached foot deep water.
Mr. Croker was found to have his leg broken
near the thigh, and tbe other leg injured, but
probably not broken. He had a deep cut ;ind a
contusion on the forehead, and blood was flow
ing from his eors. He was unconscious for
about ten minutt-e. Finally, when a. byßtond«±r
rolled back his eyeiida he spoke, and gradually
revived. There is still a chan<e of internal in
juries being foui:d. but it seems probabh
he will ret-over.
Ravel. the driver, had ceased to breathe when
his body was pulled out of th" Atlantic. The
cyclist, whose legs were rroken. was taken to
a carriage and speedily driven off.
At a late hour to-night word received from
Ormond Is that Croker waa resting easily at the
Hotel Ormond and that doctors feel sure he
will recover. He hajs been conscious practically
a!I the time Flnce he revived after the first shock.
Five doctors are in attendance— Messrs. Ben
nrt. Miller. Def-le*-, Marsh and Parks. Later
examination indicates that only one le;? was
broken, also one thumb. His body Is bruised
all over in spots. The coroner has taken charge
of Raeul's body. The automobile still 'ies in
the ocean, and ta being viewed by a crowd in the
The accident is likelj to cau6e the government
to exercise jurisdiction over the beach. The city
has assumed control, but legally has no control
above high water mark. President Peck of tne
Florida East f'oast Automobile Association said
this evening he was satiEfled that a soft spot
of sand, gripping the tire, threw the car over.
Croker Is one of the most daring amateur au-
Mpts In the country, and has his motor
boat her*-, intending to enter the Palm Beach
boat races week after next. He made h'.s fiist
■.jnt appearance In the YanderMit Cup
races last October. In that contest his car, to
be reduced to proper weight, was bored full of
holes. Thia caused it to sajf ao in the race that
the back of the seat pushed him tightly against
the Bteering aAkaefl, and he had to withdraw. At
the Empire » 'lvy track lust fall he won the world
amateur records from ten to twelve miles, when
he was forced to slow down. He is also Jnter
eat«d in goif, dogs and horses.

WIGWAM TO NAME JEROME
ALLIANCE WITH MURPHY.
Tammany to Rt nominate District
Attorney — Its Purpose.
District Attorney Jerome is to be nominated
by Tammany Hal] to succeed himself. There Is
<L*very reason to believe that a dral has been
made between Charles F. Murphy and the Dis
t;i t Attorney looking to hlB nomination by
Tammany this fall. The deal has not taken th'
shape of a hard and fast compact, but It is none
!!'• i bb binding for all that
A Republican district leader told ex-Governo*
Odell yesterday at the Fifth Avenue Hotel the
following incident: A young lawyer, a short
time before the nrst of the year, asked the
district leader to get him an appointment on
the staff of Attorney General Mayer. The dis
trict leader was working to get it, when the
applicant called on him and said:
"You needn't mind about yetting that place
for me. 'Charlie' Murphy baa a : me on Je
An investigation of the political complexion
of Mr. Jerome's staff probably would show that
four-fifths of the lawyers and clerks on the
payroll of the department are Democrats and in
good and regular standing in Tammany Hall.
A Tribune reporter learned yesterday from a
trustworthy source that just before he went
on the bench, Victor J. Dowling, who in the
fail of 1903 persuaded Charles F. Murphy to
nominate Controller Grout and President Fumes
on the Tammany ticket, after these official'? hail
bf«*n len&.rf; b'ated by C^e- Ctt!Z4SM ( • l:,l; «md
Republicans, suggested that it could be done
again in the cafe of Jerome.
The Murphy coup In 1908 demoralized the
Puaionista and resulted in the election of the
Tammany ticket. Mr. Murphy believes that he
can repeat the trick this year by nominating
Jerome. It is practically certain that h
do this, no matter whether the Citizens' Union
fir.n Dominates the District Attorney to succeed
.!' or not.
The Republican tea iav« decided
that they will not nominate Mr. Jerome to sur
ceed himself. The Republican objection to Mr.
-isis in part in the fact that many of
the district !<'.uiers think that if the District
Attorn ted bj Republican*
be might I 1 .is an eligible candidate
for G" the Democratic ticket a year
from next falL Th< Republicans are oppoi
general principles to developing Democratic
candidate* for Governor.
It may be recalled that Charles F. Murphy of
late yean has not had anything disagreeable to
uut Mr. Jerome i r his conduct of the Dis
trict Attorney's office On the other hand, Mr.

ment "f I>c».ks and Ferries, whereby Mr.
Murphy's business associates and political favoi
started oil promisingly, i'ut
it was not lung before Mr. Jerome apparently
lost interest. The end of the year came, and
the statute of limitations prevented further ef
fective action In the investigation.
Another development full of sutgestiveness is
the fact thai Commissioner HcAdoo, with the
knowledge and sanction of Mayor McClellan and
Charles F. Murphy, has turned against the po
lice force, and :s gonig to unusual lengths, for a
iany vtih ia!, in allowing up the corrupt
practices of the Tannnanyized Police Depart
ment. Tliis is regarded at the Democratic Club
as the winning card for Tammany next fall.
Punish the police, and assist Jerome! That li

Mr. Murphy, whose district has be<-n pnn^-t^d

BRING ORDER TO SAX DOMINGO
NEGOTIATIONS FOR VIRTUAL AMERICAN CONTROL
OF WEST INDIAN REPUBLIC.
Term* of a Protocol Signed for the Trco Government* — Dominican In*
tegrity Guaranteed, icith American Control of Finances* _i^|
Santo Domingo, Jrxn. 21.— A protocol between
the Dominican government and th© American
Minister, Mr. Dawson. and Commander A. C.
Dllllngham, U. S. N.. in behalf of the American
government, was signed yesterday.
The principal conditions are that the Ameri
can government guarantees the complete in
tegrity of Dominican territory, agrees to under
take the adjustment of all obligations of the
Dominican government foreign and domestic,
and the conditions of payments; to adjust un
reasonable claims, and to determine the validity
and amount of pending claim s.
In the case of the appointment of one or more
commissions to reach such an adjustment, the
Dominican government shall be represented In
order to protect its responsibllty. The American
government will take charge of the existing cus
tom housos and those hereafter to be created,
and will name the employes necessary to their
management, the duties tkey will exercise and
th?ir rights. These will be considered Domi
nicans and subject to the laws of the republic.
The Dominican government will have at each
custom house inspectors in behalf of its inter
ests from the d.:te when the contract takes
sidered as acting under its provisions.
( >ut of the revenues collected at the «
bouses of the republic ths American government
will deliver to the Dominican government 4,">
per cent of the total of the gross amount for the
purpose of attending to the necessities of the
budget. It is estimated that th" first yea* |
000 will be receivable monthly. The advance
payments are divided into four instalm-
FRIENDLY PROTECTORATE BEGINS FEBRUARY 1.
[FROM THE TRIBUNE P.: P.F.Af. !
Washington. Jan. 21.— On February 1 the
United States will assume over Santo Domingo
the friendly protectorate first predicted in these
dispatches to The Tribune of December 4. This
action will be taken in accordance with the pro
visions of a protocol signed at Santo Domingo
City to-day by Mr. Dawson, the United States
Minister, and the President of Santo Domingo.
Under the provisions of the protocol, the Unite!
States guaranties thc>" compete integrity of Do
minican territory and agrees to undertake the
adjustment of Santo Domingo's debts, domestic
and foreign, to adjust the conditions of pay
ment and adjudicated unliquidated indebted
ness. To accomplish this end the American gov
ernment will take entire charge of the custom
houses of the island nation. Out of the customs
receipts. 4."i per cent will be paid to Santo Do
mingo to meet the national expenses, while the
remaining 53 per cent will be applied to the ex
penses of collection and the defrayment of the
accumulated indebtedness. It is estimated that
the aggregate monthly receipts will amount to
$000,000. The United States will also, as al
ready toM in these dispatches, give all possible
assistance In the restoration of Dominican
credit, in the establishment of good order and
toward increasing the efficiency of administra
tion. Everything possible will be done to pro
mote the material welfare and progress of the
NO LAND GRABBING SCHEME.
As was authoritatively announced in The
Tribune cf December 4, "the United States will
not purchase, annex, or even accept as a gift
the Republic of Santo Domingo. It is. however,
possible that the United States in return for act
ing as Dominican receiver, may acquire- the use
of a coaling station on Samana Bay."
Under the arbitral award of July 14, 1004. the
indebtedness of Santo Domingo to citizens of the
United States, amounting to $4,451,2.V) was af
firmed, and monthly payments of $37,000 for
the first year and $41,000 CG for each succeeding
year we're provided for. the entire debt to bear
interest at 4 per cent until paid. To meet these
payments the entire port receipts of Porto
Plata. Sanchez. Samana and Monte Cristl were
to be set apart, with the further provision that,
In default of the prescribed payments, the
United States might assume control of these
ports and administer their receipts In accord
ance with the provisions of the award.
The total debt of the republic amounts
to upward of |32.!S0,000; European bond
holders have acknoweldE- . claims of approxi
mately $7,000,000. and their representatives in
"Washington have urged that. In the light of
Santo Domingo's repeated repudiation of sol
emn pledges, the United States either assume
control In the interest of European bondhold
ers, or permit some foreign government to as
sume such control. This country has been un
willing to take such action without the co-oper
ation of Santo Domingo, although fully recog
nizing the force of the arguments presented by
the representatives of the foreign creditors. The
amicable agreement by which this end has now
been accomplished Is. therefore, regarded as a
triumph for American diplomacy, and also as in
suring the national and financial integrity of a
republic until now. because of the hopeless In
ternal condition?, hopelessly insolvent.
THE TRIBUNE'S PREDICTION CONFIRMED
In the light of the conditions prevailing in
Santo Domingo, the positive prediction was
made In these dispatches that the United States
would be compelled to assume entire control of
the republic, and that such control would be ac
complished by mutual agreement between the
Dominican authorities and this government.
This end was then regarded by officials of the
State Department as the only practicable solu
tion of the situation, and gratification Is ex
pressed that £uch an end ha been brought about
with the wise consent cf Santo Domingo.
While full details of the protocol have not
yet been received by the State Department,
