SCEXES AT SVEABORG.
Fort* Badly Battered by Shells from
H .j-mgfors. Aug. 3.— The correspondent of The
'assnrlstfiii nnw was permitted to-day to look
s»mii IHi fortress on Che main island as well as all
the other fortifications overlooking the town, al
tr.r-ugh the officials who complied with his re-
I Nil were careful not to allow him to see the
guns. The scenes proved the truth of the state
ments that the mutineers had the upper hand in
practically aU the fortresses until the arrival of
BJBj ortad by an officer, the correspondent saw
«U the miner barracks and fortifications and the
■o-t.irf sad neighboring; quays, which bristled
-with machine guns. Flagstaff* had been splin
tered, as if the mutineers had tried to shoot
away the Russian colors. The most severe fire
from the fortress was directed on the head
ejsjartera of the commander, who. on the second
day of the trouble, was forced to seek shelter
ii a better protected place.
The barracks In the vicinity showed plainly
the effects of the fighting;. They are to-day
panning more than tottering ruins, upheld by
Sjsjsj girders. The church In which hang the
memorials of the French and English botnbard
inint of ItSS was struck several times, but It Is
evident that the mutineers did net wish to de
stroy the building, in spite of the tact that none
of Its windows remain whole,
Results of the firing were seen on every hand,
fragments of shrapnel, chain shot and shells lit

many signs of the bombardment, great rents in
the walls, boles in the roof and shattered win
dows telling their own tales. The correspondent
was not permitted to examine In detail the forti
fications held by the rebels, as these form part
of the national defences and are secret There is
no question that until the warships came up the
government was powerless, and was simply able
to hold Its positions. The commander had
scarcely fled from his headquarters, leaving them
a heap of ruins, when the warships crept up the
coast and opened fire. Taken unawares, with

•this morning. The prisoners have been marched
out and sent to Skatudden Island, where they
will await trial.
The Red Guard yesterday evening made an
effort to bring about a general strike. They
marched in force to the powerhouse of the street
railroad and ordered the men to strike. Upon
their refusal the rebels attempted to destroy
the buildings. Police and communal guards
were summoned and a fight followed, resulting
In the killing of the assistant chief of police,
several communal guards and a number of the
Bed Guard. Cossacks were summoned and

The Red Guard consists of the greater part
of the Finnish proletariat, while the communal
guards are made up of the middle and wealthy
Classes and are organized to maintain order and
protect property. They are armed with rifles
and are almost under military discipline.
The government is handling the situation
carefully, fearing that the movement may spread
throughout the country. The Cossacks are used

Premier Ma?/ Resign- -Troop* Back
in Capital- -Admiral Dtad.
St. Petersburg. Aug. 3.— Premier Stolypltt has
gone to Peterhof, with the intention, it is be
lieved, of tendering his resignation.
The report that Emperor Nicholas had flatly
refused to accept the conditions to which
Premier Stolypln agreed in his negotiations with
Count Heyden. Alexander Guchkoff, Prince
Nicholas Lvoff, Paul Vlnogradoff and Senator
Koni for the reorganization of the Cabinet Is
true. Official confirmation came this morning
in the following announcement:
The reports that the non-bureaucratic ele
ments will enter the Cabinet are untrue.
Count Heyden and his associates have now
washed their hands of the government The
count has left St. Petersburg for his estate in
the country, and all M. Stolypin's promises of
"strong handed reforms" are thus made void.
He has been worsted in his first encounter with
the Influences at court, and the predictions of
the Liberals that the dissolution of parliament
would lead to a dictatorship appear to be on
the point of realization.
The Guard regiments, which were sent back
to their camp at Krasnoye-Selo at the end of
last week, when the government thought that
the country had accepted the Emperor's decree,
are returning to the capital. They were march
ing in aU night. The patrols In the streets have
again been reinforced, all the public buildings
are heavily occupied by troops and the domi
ciliary visits and arrests are Increasing. The
authorities act as if dazed. The searchlights
of a cruiser stationed in the lower reaches of
the Neva and similar lights on the roof of the
Baltic works were played last night on the

Last night's incendiary fires did not spread,
giving relief to those who feared the whole city
might be burned.
Reports from Cronstadt to-day said that all
the sailors had not yet surrendered. Trials by
drumhead court martial were resumed at 10
o'clock this morning.
All the officers killed at Cronstadt fell fighting.
Rear Admiral Beclemscheff, who received many
vounds, died during the night. When the sailors
mutinied the admiral immediately went out with
his staff, and entered the barracks. Within a
few seconds he and two captains were shot
The crowd of civilians who joined the muti
neers Included a large number of women. They
were armed with rifles, revolvers and swords.
One of the wounded captains was spared be
cause he wore the St. George's Cross.
Captain Trodioneff, who wag killed, fought in
the Battle of the Sea of Japan on one of the
Russian ships which foundered. He was four
teen hours in the water before he was picked up.
It has been ascertained that the Yenisei Regi
ment played the moat prominent part at Cron
stadt in quelling the mutiny of the sailors. The
rebels had broken into the arsenal, after over
powering the guards, and had seized a quantity
of arms. After firing several volleys the Yenisei
Regiment charged, driving out the mutineers and
pursuing them Into the streets. Some shots
were fired at the loyal troops from houses. Many
of the mutineers sougnt to escape from the
town, but they were met by a hot fire and driven
to their barracks, where they were surrounded.
An attempt was made by one party of muti
neers to capture the harbor batteries, but it
was repulsed by the fire of machine guns.
M. Chtcheglovttoff, the Minister of Justice,
this morning issued an appeal to the public in
the name of the Emperor to observe the law,

Eight Officers Escaped— , of - the
Capture at Reval.
St. Petersburg, Aug. 3.-The accounts received
here of the mutiny on the armored cruiser Pam
yat Azova, off tho >:.-•:. nlan coast on August 1.
show that the sailors expected to obtain the
support of the garrison of the fortress of KevaL
A student agitator, probably ono of the emis
saries sent from St. ' Petersburg, was stowed
away on board. When the crew mutinied after
midnight Wednesday the cruiser was anchored
twenty miles down the coast Evidently her
commander. Captain Eoslnsky, had learned what
was going on, for ho arrested and Bent ashore
a sailor named Tarosoff. who was wgar.ied as
being the ringleader. Two hours afterward the
sailors rose, entered the cabin and killed Cap
tain Saborovsky. When he saw the mutineers
approaching, tho captain made a rush for the
carbine rack, but the sailors had .jammed the
breech blocks of the carbines and Captain Sa
borovsky was shot.
The firing aroused the officers below, who ran
on deck, crowded into a launch moored along
side and started for the shore. The mutineers
Immediately loaded a rapid-fire gun and also
manned a cutter and put off in pursuit of the
launch. Lieutenant Unkaovsky and two other
officers were killed by a shell from tlte cruiser,
and others were wounded. The mutineers in
the cutter were rapidly overhauling the launch,
when, on reaching shallow water, the surviving
officers jumped into the bay and made for the
shore. An attempt was made to drag with them
one of their wounded comrades, but he was
finally abandoned and drowned. Eight officers
The mutineers headed the cruiser for Reval.
Her consort, a torpedo boat, followed under fire
from the Pamyat Azova, but was not hit, as she
succeeded in keeping out of range.
Arriving at Reval. some of the mutineers put
off In a boat for the fortress, in order to request
the artillerymen to Join them, but the authori
ties had been informed of what had happened,
and the mutineers were arrested as they landed.
This being seen from the cruiser, the main body
of the crew, who seemed to have remained neu
tral, suddenly turned on the mutineers, over
powered them, replaced the red flag at the mast
head with a whtte flag and sent word ashore
that the mutineers were confined below decks,
whereupon the Qovernor General sent off soldiers
in boats and the mutineers were taken ashore.
About one hundred and fifty sailors were ar
rested, and a number of students found among
the crew were also made prisoners.
The Pamyat Azova was the cruiser on which
Emperor Nicholas, then heir to the throne, made
a voyage to the Far East in 1803.
London, Aug. 3.— A dispatch to a news agency
from Reval says that In the mutiny on the Pam

LARGE FIRE AT MILAN.
Damage to Exposition Estimated at
Milan, Aug. 3.— Fire which broke out here, this
morning In the International Exposition did
great damage. The sections devoted to the
decorative arts of Italy and Hungary weife de
stroyed, as also was the pavilion in which were
installed the exhibits of Italian and Hungarian
architecture. The damage is estimated at $2,
000,000. Several firemen and soldiers were in
The fire was first discovered at 5 o'clock this
morning in the Hungarian section and spread
rapidly to the art sections, situated in an ad
joining park. For a time the British, Swiss.
Japanese and Netherlands sections were threat
ened, but by energetic work the firemen suc
ceeded in saving them. The Jewelry and fine
arts sections also were threatened, but a large
force of soldiers carried the pictures from the
Gallery of Fine Arts into the corridors of sec
tions beyond the fire zone.
The Palace of Decorative Arts, covering 15.000
square yards and containing; four thousand ex
hibits, is a mass of ruins. The building was
lightly constructed of woe/, and Iron. The ex
hibits, chiefly fine examples of furniture, hang
ings, household goods and clothing, were a total
loss. The Architectural Pavilion, which was also
destroyed, contained many exhibits of historio
value. Including the original model of the dome
of the Cathedral of Milan, original documents
referring to the Milanese scientist Volta, and
many documents relating to Napoleon.
Although the Fine Arts Pavilion was saved
many paintings were damaged.
The fire was at first thought due to an #lectr!e
wire, but the Edison company's statement that
the current was rut off 'ast night has caused
the authorities to investigate the reports that
employes who were recently discharged as night
watchmen were responsible for the fire.
The committee has decided Immediately to re
build the burned edifices, and has called on the
exhibitors for co-operation. No American ex
hibits were injured by the fire.

Boston and Montana Company shut down this
evening, the men being Informed that the

It is said that one man. who is in arrears

in demanding the discharge of this one smelter
