THE MAGNITUDE OF RUSSIA'S DISCONTENT.

AUSTRIA'S NEW EPOCH.
FREE SUFFRAGE FOR ALrE.
Monster Demonstrations Lead the
Crown to Grant Reforms.
Vienna, Xov. 2S?To-day marked a new epoch
ln Austrian hlstory. for tht? Austrian people
throughout the entire land made known to the
crown their demand for equal suffrage. and even
as this demand was beir.g voiced the crown
.through Premier Baron Gautch von Franken
thurn. ln Parliament, was assuring the people
that Its will would be done. The Premier prom?
lsed to bring in by the end of February a bill
providing for a full and free universal, equal
and direct suffrage.
The people made known their demand hy a
?erles of monster demonstrations In all the prin
efptl cities and towns of the country. From only
one town. Austerlitz. are serious disorders re?
ported. There the troops Sred on disorderly
demonstrators. killing two and wounding thlrty.
Otherwise the demonstrations were charaeter
ized by the maintenance of order and dignity.
Hundreds of thousands of men paraded to-day.
thus emphasizing their demand for political
freedom. _?ach a demonsSration was never be?
fore witnessc-d in Austria. The most Impressive
feature of the whole day in Vienna was that
not a single voice was raised as the n-asses
marched si'ently but earnestly and with unmls
takable determtnat'on.
Parliament opened at 11 o'ciock. and at noon
Premier Von Frankenthurn announced the
granting of suffrage to the people. Between
10 a m. and 3 p. m..* fully 175.000 men and
women marched past the Parliament buildings,
each person wearing on his arm a red cloth
band. bearlng words imperatively demanding
the granting of equal suffrage.
The demonstrators turned out in much larger
nurnbers than had been expected. and the day's
occurrence has made a deep and serious impres
slon upon the country at large. The Premier's
words ln Parliament relatlng to suffrage made
a favorable impresslon, particularly upon the
Germans, who are gratifled because of the pnv
ernment's promise to protect the various na
tionalities composing the population of th* em?
pire. In this they see an assurance of the con
tinuance of their national predominance. The
nezt election to the Chamber of Deputies wfll
take place next year, probably in the summer.

Speaks with Weaver and Colby at
City Club Dinner.
BOLTS FROM THE BOSS BEHEABERS.
"When a judge of tho Supreme Court has
to go to Charley Murphy?a common bar
tender?and plead to be elevated to a position
to pass on our lives, our liberties, and our
property, it is something for the bar to think
about.
"lt is known that certain members of the
judiciary to which i have reference retain
their interests in commercial and other busi?
ness matters and transactions."?(District
Attorney Jerome.
"I would inscribe ballot reform as first in
the reform demanded by the hour. The bal?
lot should be made to record the will of the
people. . . . A complicated ballot is the
chief buttress of corrupt politicians.
"The officeholder* should be wholly di
vorced from all politicai relation to the mak
ers of nominations or the conduct of elec?
tions. Even voluntary contributions to polit
Kal parties ahouW be prohtbite-d."?(Mayor
Weaver.
"Fighting bosses sa individuals is like dig
ging dandelions without reaching the roots
?they spring up overnight again.
"What is one permanent remedy? To me
it seems that it can be found in a direct
primary law that will enable a person with a
plan of reform to get possession of the ma?
chinery of his party to put his reform into
effect. It drives the party boss to the wall
for good."?State Senator-elect Colby, of
New-Jersey.
A bltter attack on the Supreme Court of the
State by District Attorney Jerome and the
promise from him that he would fight against
an elective judiciary to the end. whether he had
the support of fellow members of the bar or not,
were the features of the "Politicai Independence
Dinner" given last night by the Clty Club.
From the same platform several hundred lnde?
pendent politicai -**<Tkers heard Mayor Weaver
of Philadelphia tell how the battle for purlty
; in public places had been fought and won In
I the Quaker Clty and what the winnlng rneant.
[ Then Everett Colby. the young Jerseyman who

; fight. told of the reform wave sweeping the
! State across the river, and prophesied its con
; tinuance by means of the direct primary. Mayor
| Tom Johnson of cieveland. avowing hirnself an
j involved radical, saw in the gathering of varl
I ous party representatlves a sign of the times
: that citizenship was rising above partisanship.
At the end of the speech of Mr. Jerome Mr.
'. Fox, the toastmaster, remarked that he agreed
'? with the sentlments expressed by the speaker.
! especially in reference to politics in the judiciary.
"A member of the bar." said Mr. Fox. "who
puts up an assessment to a politicai party to
secure his nomination should not oniy be de?
feated at the polls on Election Day. but by mem
. bers of the bar this man, or these men, should be
ostracized socially by his fellow members of the
| bar."
The long oak panelled dinner hall of the City
Club was decoTaled with yellow and blue rib?
bons. the colors of the Quaker City. in honor
of Mavor Weaver and his winning flght for
| puritv and reform. Austen G. Fox. president
of the club. presided. and from the minute Mr.
Jerome be-an to speak the enthusiasm for Inde?

WARSAW.
?a/IUustratlon,
MUTINEERS STILL OUT.
SAILORS' GRACE EXPIRES.
May Be War in Crimea?Discon
tent in Army Spreads.
St. Petersburg. Nov. 28.?The last day of grace
accorded the mutineers at Sebastopol expired at
mldnight with no signs of surrender on the part
of the men. The hills towerlng above the har?
bor of the Russian stronghold in *he Black Sea
may resound this morning. as they did in the
days of the Crlmean "War. with the roar of
musketry and cannon should the government
attempt to carry cut its announced intention of
crushing the revolt.
The rebellious sailors are plaving a waiting
game, and apparently have full confidence that
the guns of the fieet will not be turned against
them. If they have not actually dlsregarded the
summons to haul down the red flag they seem
determined to make the authorities show their
hands.
Whether General Nepluoff, the commandant of
the fortress, who was released by the mutineers
to-day and relieved General Baron Meiler Gako
molskle, wlll dare to accept the challenge of the
mutineers and stake the discipline and loyalty.
not only of the troops at his dlsposal. but of the
whole army, on the east is. however, doubtfui.
Dispatches from a score of garrisons in Russia
show that the land forces of the empire are In
a state of dlscontent, and any order to the troops
to fire upon the sailors might precipitate a gen?
eral and widespread mutiny. On the other hand,
it would be dlfflcult to starve out the sailors by
a regular slege, as provisions and water can be
obtalned by them. and they are under the guns
of not unfriendly warships
The report that the whole fleet had gone over
to the mutineers under the command of Lieu?
tenant Schmidt, the revolutlonary commander
of the cruiser Otchakoff, is incorrect, though
the offlcers of the other ships, as in Vlce-Ad
miral Kruger's abortive demonstration against
the mutineers on the Kniaz Potemkine at
Odessa, probably will be unable to carry out
any measures against the mutineers.
The staff quarters at Sebastopol are guarded
by Cossacks, and the offlcers in the streets are
aecompanied by escorts of Cossacks. the only
branch of the service the fidelity of which is
absolutely unquestioned. Even the members of
the Guard regiments, who are pets of the im?
perial famlly and superlatively paid and treated
as compared with the members of other regi?
ments. are joining in the revolutionary move?
ment. Two hundred and fifty men of the Guard
regiments, who were said to have been leaders
in spreading the revolutionary propaganda, were
arresteri at their barracks Sunday nlght. It is
reported that lhe sailors of the Guard equipages.
from which the crews for the lmperial yachts
are drawn, will be removed to St. Petersburg on
account of disaffeetion among them.
The Councll for National Defence held a pro
tracted session yesterday, at which the situation
was discussed.
The rumblings of another general strike are
becomlng louder. The post and telegraph offi?
cials at Moscow have already gone out, and the
strike has spread to twelve other cities.
The General Workmen's Councll has sum
moned a conference of the leaders throughout
the empire for Thursday to discuss the possibii
ity of a national strike in sympathy with the
locked out workmen of St. Petersburg. There is
a strong feeling against such a strike, however,
not only on account of the poverty of the work?
men, but also because it would interfere with
the great strike planned for January.
A delegation representing the Newspaper
T'nion called upon Count Witte yesterday to de?
mand that the writer, M. Serasheffsky who was
expelied from Warsaw by Governor General
Skallon, be allowed to return. The Premier
said he would telegraph to the Governor Gen?
eral suggesting the exercise of ali leniency pos?
sible in the case of M. Serasheffsky. but that he
was unwilling to issue a dlrect order. "You
know." he said, "how touchy these Governor
Generals and Governors are just now. Say a
word to them and they reslgn."
Professor Hodsky. Editor of the "T-asha
Shisn." called upon the Premier to demand per
rnission for Father Gapon to return to Russia.
"What is the use of deception among fri_-id_,"
said Count Witte to the professor. "You and I
know. even if the pollce do not, that Father
Gapon has been living In your house since Au?
gust 13."_

The alleged swlndle operated by Hoffheimer
s a compllcated affalr and extends back over a

From that time on. it is alleged. Hoffheimer
iellvered lists to Strauss & Co. daily of car
oads of cattle feed whlch he sald he had bought
?'rom various concerns and had sold to Nelson
Morrls & Co. He would obtain checks for the
imount of hls purchases from S. W. Strauss &

he bankers drafts on Nelson Morris & Co. for
he amounts for which he lnformed them he had
lold tbe feed to the packing company. The drafts
aken by the bankers were depo_ited in their

FOOTBALL EEFORMERS ACT.
The Columbia Committee on Student Or?
ganization* passed resoiutions abolishing
football at the university.
Edmund Wetmore, a member of the Board
of Overseers of Harvard University, said the
board at its next meeting would probably
take up the reform of football.
New-York University called on all institu?
tions with which it haa football affiliations
for a conference, instructing its delegates to
such conference to vDte for the abolitioo of
the game.
Chancellor MacCracken was assured that
Western colleges favored his plan for the ab
oliticn or reform of the game.
Another football death waa recorded, that
of a youth injured in a game at Sedalia,
Mo., on Saturday.
The adoption of a rule requiring ten in
stead of five yards in three downs ia ?
remedy suggested by Walter Camp.
President Rhees- of University of Roches?
ter said the game as played at present would
not be tolerat.d at that institution. He wiii
approve any action taken to modify the rules
and rnethods of the game.
It was reported that William T. Reid, jr.,
head coach of Harvard, was preparing to go
to Washington for a second interview with
President Roosevelt on football, Mr. Reid
Jeclined to discuss the matter.
Football has been abolished at Columbia Uni?
versity. Acting under the dh-ection of Dr.Nicholas
Murray Butler, president of the university, the
.?ommittee on student organizations met last
night and passed resolutlons whlch can have ne
.ther effect than the complete abolishment t._
the game.
The statement given out by the committee
lfter the meeting at the home of Professo**
Henry Bedinger Mitchell, at No. 79 Madison
ive.. read as follows:
Under the authority conferred by the university
?ouncll upon the university committee on student
jrganizations to supervlse ar.d control all student

?ontroller of student organizations.
Resolved. That in the opinion of this commlttee
he present game of football should be abolisheti,
md the committee recommend to the university
?ouncll that the game be prohibited at Columbia
,'nlversity.
The committee is compt sed of Herbert Gard
ner Lord, chairman; George Ciinton Densmore
.dell and Henry Bedinger Mitchell. The com
nittee has absolute controi over all student cwr
janizatlons of any sort, and it its action in this
natter is final. Meeting with the committee
were Dean George Washington Kirchway. a

Cavor of the action taken and lent influence to
_ring it about.
After glvlng ou* the statemertf of the commit

Or the action which had been taken. He said:
Th>' reasons for this action need no explanatlon.
["hey must be present to every one acquainted with

Although the committee has taken the action
iy itself, and President Butler has given out no
tatement of his views, it is known that he is in
ull accord with the action.
A preliminary meeting was held in Presi
lent Butler's office yesterday aft.moon. Mr.
hjtler expressed his views on the matter fully
