maintain public order and put down the
mob with an iron hand.

to tho strike, tho President Is represented
as saying, "In any case bo assured I will
keep my hands off unless your folly brings
you Into collision with tho laws of tho
United Statcss when my hand will go on In
a way you will not like. So far as I am
concerned, you have barked up the wrong

cavalry, as commander-in-chief, Is re- fl'
garded ns practically settled. The situ- j: ll
atlon at the front with two and perhaps 1 1 1 IB
ultimately three big armies is consld- , .
ered to demand above all else that the fl! 'H

likely to retain his title and come to j- il
St. Potersburg, nominally In the capa- I . , j fH
city of adviser of the Emperor, and will ;f '
thus efface himself as a factor of the ij
military situation. In the Far East. 5 'H
