DEFEXDS HIS ACTIONS.
Count Witte Would Do Again as
He Did Late in 1905.
St. Petersburg, Nov. Count Wltte- has
written a letter to the "Xovoe Vremya" on the
subject of the statements affecting him which
were made at the trial recently of the mem
bers of the Workmen's Council. The former
Premier In this ««»uimunlcation points out that
the "council, as •well as other revolutionary as
sociations," was organized, while he was in
the United States, and declares that he was
not acquainted with the president of the coun
cil and never had any communication with him
nor any official or private relations with the
council. The count adds that, whether or not
the government acted correctly in arresting the
members of the council, can only be deter
mined by impartial judgment in the future.
For the present. M: "Witte says, he can only
say that should he be placed in the unfortunate
position of having to act under the same cir
cumstances as during the last month or 1905
he would act in the same manner as he did
at that time.
The evening papers to-day print a report that
Count Wltte has been nominated ambassador
to France, but the rumor is stated to be with

Police Department had caused the incendiary
proclamations to be printed and had organ
ized attacks on the Jews, or to summon Count
Witts and other ministers as witnesses to prove
that the Workmen's Council was sanctioned by
the government. The attorneys defending the
fifty-two accused members of the council there
upon withdrew from the case, and the accused
men, through their spokesmen. MM. Krustaloff
and Bronsteln, declared that they ceased to
recognize the jurisdiction of the court and
would press to the extremity of shedding blood
their refusal to participate any further In the
trial. The court, to avoid trouble, thereupon
decided to proceed with the case without the
presence of either lawyers or the accused, such
a procedure being customary under the revolu
tionary conditions in Russia. Eventually four
teen of the leaders of the Workmen's Council
were sentenced, on November 1. to exile In
Siberia and the loss of civil rights. Two others
were condemned to imprisonment In a fortress,
and the rest of the accused were acquitted.
The report of M. L,opucsin. dated June 27.
contains a strong indictment of the former head
of the political police and makes positive alle
gations to the effect that the late General

AIRSHIP VS. SLEDGE.
WeUman Confident That 'Air Line
Only Will Reach the Pole.
Paris, Nov. 15.— Now that Commander Peary
has returned from the Arctic regions without hav
ing reached the North Pole, tho only expedition
known to be preparing to seek the Pole next year
Is that of Walter Wellman. There are other Arctic
expeditions In tne field, byt none of them has the
Pole as an objective.
Mr. Wellman is hard at work with his prepara
tions for next year's expedition. Work was begun
at Asnleres, a suburb of Paris, on the erection of
a large hanger, or workshop, in which the polar air
ship America, of the Wellmiin-'Vhlcago Record-
Herald" expedition, is to be reconstructed during the
coming winter. After study of all the latest dir
igible balloons, including the Lebaudy, built as an
aerial cruiser and scout for the French army, and
the Major Parseval Rhip in Berlin, designed for the
German army. Mr. Wellman has decided on a plan
of reconstruction designed by himself, with the
assistance of his expedition engineers. The new
airship, he believes, will mark a distinct advance
In aeronautics as applied to geographical explora
tion. It will have a total lifting force of 5.300 kilos,
or more than 18,000 pounds, and will carry, in addi
tion to Its o.r*w of five men and a fully equipped
eledping expedition, 3.000 kilos, or fi.fioo pounds, of
petroleum for the motor of 80 horsepower. Instead
of letting the work by contract. Mr. Wellman is
building his own workshop and Installing ma
chinery, and will effect the reconstruction directly
by his own engineers. MM. Vanlman. an American,

'■Commander Peary has made * plucky and IB«
lant effort to reach the Pole." said Mr l.™*n
"and, though he has failed In his great ambition,
all Americans are proud of his achievement in ai
tntning the highest north. Commander Peary nas
fully demonstrate.!. I think, the impracticability
of reaching the Pole by the old method of sluic
ing with dogs over the mutable, drifting sea ice.
Years ngo, after bitter experience, I came to the
conclusion that that method was a failure, and
began searching the modern arts for something
more effective. I believe now, more strongly than
ever, that we have hit upon the right idea— a .motor
driven airship. It Is my belief that we shall reach
the. Pole next July or August from the Immense
aeronautic base we have established at Spltzbergen.
"If our airship will only carry us to the Polo or
its neighborhood, we can return by sledtrine. Th«
distance covered by Peary in sludging to the STth
degTes and back apaln last spring would be suf
ficient to take us from the Pole to Spltznergen.
The drift of ice which prevented Peary reaching
the Pole would help us on our homeward wax, ana
there is a c instant current from the Pole through
the only outlet Of the Arctic Ocean sweeping the
west coast of Spitzbergen. While we have even in
view thlß alternative of a sledging return In cas«
of necessity, we believe our airship r.-lth a. fair
deim>e of pood fortune will carry tin to th« Pole
and southward a?ain to land and' safety. •■ #
JAPANS BIG SHIP AFLOAT.
The Satsuvia. Rivalling Great Brit
ain's Dreadnought, Launched.
Toklo. Nov. 15.— The first class Japanese bat
tleship Satsuma, of 19,000 tons, the first battle
ship to be launched in Japanese waters, took the
water to-day In the presence of the Emperor.
The greatest enthusiasm was manifested. The
newspapers here reflect the epoch making natur.i
of tlii event, as indicated by tho unprecedented
presence of the Emperor, and eulogize the suc
cess of the naval constructors. It is taken for
granted that the ship Is the equal, nnd perhaps
the superior, of any other warship afloat.
The Satsuma 1« the first battleship of modern
construction to be launched in Japan, and is be
lieved to be equal to the Pritish battleship
Dreadnouphi. According to th« Tokio corre
spondent of "The London Daily Telegraph," the
Satsuma embodies all the lessons of the war be
tween Japan and Russia. The woodwork on
board has been reduced to a minimum, tho ves
sel is fitted with elaborate fire apparatus, and
her upper works have been kept as clear of top
hamper as possible. The details of her con
struction follow in the main those of the Dread
nought, whose steaming capacity the Satsuma
is expected to excel. The correspondent assert
ed that there was every reason to believe that
the British and Japanese admiralties exchanged
plans and Ideas previous to the construction of
the Satsuir.a, which was built by Japanese labor
"The Naval Annual" does not give the dlmen
slonfl of the Satsuma, and merely mentions that
fih<» has on armored belt from nine to five Inches
thick. Her armament, however. Is given ns four
12-lnch guns, twelve 10 -inch suns a.nd twelve
4.7-inch guns. She has five; torpedo tubes, of
which four are submerged, and her engines are
calculated to give her a speed of nineteen knots.
The keel of the new battleship was laid on May
According to unofficial reports, the Satsuma
N 482 feet long, has 83^& feet beam and draws
JT l^ feet of water. These reports also say that
her tonnage is 19.2"", or 1,200 tons more than
the Dreadnought, which, however, is ."00 feet
long, nr.orditig to "The Naval Annual." Tho
horsepower of the Satsuma is given unofficially
ap 18.0UO, a^ against 23.000 tor the Dreadnought,
whose speed is <>stiiTinted at twenty-one knots.
The Dreadnought carries ten 12-inch guns.

TO GUARD GREECE'S KING.
Secret Police in Rome Looking Out
for Anarchist Plots.
Rome. Nov. 15.— Several members of the Greek
secret police have arrived here to take part In
protecting the Kin* and Queen of Greece, who
are to arrive here on November 23 on a visit of
four days to King Victor Emmanuel. It Is
stated that the Grecian authorities have re
ceived information that the anarchists intend to
make an attempt upon the life of Kins George
during his visit to Italy, and there is a disposi
tion to connect the bomb explosion outside, the
Cafe Aragno here yesterday with anarchist ac
tivity In this connection.
All the efforts of th« police to arrest or even
discover the identity of the man who exploded
the bomb have been fruitless, but they have
traced hla movements before the explosion. It
appears that he dined at a restaurant near the
CafA Aragno. spoke with a southern accent, was
dressed in the style of the emigrants who return
from the Tnlted States, paid his bill wlfha ■**-

money changer on it. and let it be seen that he
hnd in his pocketbook other 50-llre banknotes,
which surprised the waiter, considering: the ap
rearan-e of the man. This leads to itv> suspi
cion that he was an anarchist, that ho P o slbl>
belonged to the same group which carried • ut
the assassination of King Humbert, and that ti"
came here from the United States with a mis
sion to commit some grave, outrage.

ATTACK OX EDDYISM.
Boston Hector Say* It Is ExscTitialhf
Baltimore, Nov. 15.— At a dinner of the Church
men's Club to-night, the Rev. Dr. William Har
tnan Van Allen, of Boston, who was one of the
speakers, made :i hitter attack on Christian Sci
>i. . and Mrs. Mary Baker G. Eddy. He said la
Kddylstn uses the Christian terminology, pro
fesses reverence for Christ and the Bible, pre
tends to exalt God more highly than other re
ligions do and Ingeniously mtngles much that 13
good and true and indisputable with its own fan
tastic errors. It la therefor well calculated to do
the work Satan designs It to do. namely, to de
stroy fait in the religion of the- Christian Church
and to substitute an anti-Christian caricature. It
is a gigantic bunco schema wherein the victim
thinks he lias the treasure, but instead holds only
th- worthless imitation.
Rehearsing some of the things that have been
said In praise of Mrs Eddy, the speaker added:
All this- may be true, but. If her teachings con
tradict the Christian faith, no personal worth of
hers can make amends. To a fair-minded observer
such panegyrics seem preposterous He s*v»!« an
uncultivated woman, married three times, passing
through various forms of religious belief. and finally
settling down or one of her own Invention, mani
festly covetous, Inconceivably puffed up with van
ity, blasphemously claiming divine honors for her
self and unable to write a page of clear, rational
English prose. Over and over again she places her
writings on an equality with the Bible. The name
of her religion is a misnomer, for it is essentially
anti-Christian, The creed calls God maker of ail
things, while Eddyism denies tl 11 ings do exist
at all, denies that God made them and say? that
they are figments of mortal mind Rddylsm denies
the Trinity, one God In three persons Eddyism
denies that Jesus <"> •■•■;• was the Son of God" and
says that He was "the offspring of Mary's self
conscious communion with God."
