THE PITTSBURG. . DISPATCH, MONDAY, JANUARY; 1889.
A RTJSSIM REFUGEE.
Mr. Colin, a Besident of Allegheny
Tells About Nihilism
AND THE DESPOTISM IT AIMED AT.
Assassination of Hijh Tyrannical Poten
tates, and Its Meaning.
O.NE BRA YE GIEL WHO WAS LIBERATED
Mr. T. Colin, a Russian refugee who lives
in Allegheny, wrote a letter to The DIS
PATCH a few days since, intimating that he
would be willing to furnish au interesting
article about the conditions, customs and
sundry peculiarities of Russia, which
might afford instructive reading to the gen
eral public Accordingly a reporter went
to see Mr. Colin yesterday, and, during -a
very extended conversation, Nihilism and
its followers served as an interesting sub
ject. Mr. Colin is an adherent to the cause
himself, although he does not like to be
called a Nihilist. He said:
The people, who are Indentifled with that
name, are really a very peaceful-minded class
of citizens; but their enemies have called them
N ihilists more f or a nickname than anything
else. In America, for instance, I do not believe
that Nihilism is at all understood; for, if it
were, the American, instead of associating us
with murderers, cutthroats and foul conspira
tors, would sympathize with us, because the
fact is simrly this: The Nihilist is merely an
apostle of republicanism; and the very form of
liberty and democratic government which we
enjoy in this country, tho Nihilists are endeav
oring to introduce into Russia, to take the
place of despotism, tyranny and slavery, which
exist there now. Let me give you a synopsis of
the history of that class of people, and then let
j our readers judge for themselves.
The being which a tyranical Government
calls a Nihilist does not in reality exist in Rus
sia any more. We call ourselves Radicals. The
Ideal Nihilist you have heard of is an unbe
liever in everything existing. Ho wants to up
root the government, overturn religion, change
all social relations and the economic cons trac
tion of the country. Well, such a being was
represented by a few scatterbrained individ
uals, who were the extreme fanatics in a
really good cause. To explain myself better, it
is necessary for me to say that the intellectual
faculties of the Russians
HAVE MADE BAMD STRIDES
during the last SO years. They became more
intelligent by edncatlon. of course, and this
font of knowledge made a few men vain
enough to think that everything in this world
was wrong. From those men came the Ni
hilists; but they .did not last long. How
ever, the general distribution of knowledge
caused everybody to think, and a nat
ural result was that the people gained
the conviction that they should be free,
men. and were not deserving of being treated
like slaves. They felt that they were treated
with restrictions by the despotic rule of the
Russian Government, which were not compati
ble with the free-born spirit of man. Hence
the people of our country organized them
selves for the purpose of curtailing the iron
constitution and the supreme will of the Czar.
A political party sprang into existence, whose
alms were the introdnction of greater liberty
tn the individual, and the abolition of arbitrary
government and personal restriction. Those
are the aims of the Russian Radical or, as he
is wrongly called. Nihilist of to-day.
It was in 1S74 that men of superior intelli
cence went all through the vast country of
Russia and preached to the people about their
rights. They told them that the power to
govern the land really belonged to them, and
that, instead of the Czar owning the country,
it ought to be their own, governed in such
manner as they chose.
The consequence was that the party soon
grew. There were aristocrats, tradesmen,
mechanics peasants and artisans enrolled
among the Radicals, and steps wero taken to
induce the Government to change sundry laws
and forms in the constitution for the benefit of
the population. It was the era of peaceful
propaganda and the commencement of what is
But, peaceful as the propaganda was, the
Government could not allow it to disseminate
among the people, and a crusade was at once
inaugurated against anybody who openly
avow ed himself to be a Radical, or against him
who was only suspected of being a Radical.
The persons were immediately punished, exile
or Siberia being the usual t-entence. Exile
meant a change of residence and associations;
Eiberia explains itself.
A SYSTEM OP ESPIONAGE.
The Government introduced a system of "es
pionage." Men pretending to be Radicals were
gome through the country, and while they os
tensibly glorified in the dawn cf an era of lib
erty, they quietly informed against the Radi
cals wherever they were found.
This system of persecution on the part of the
Government naturally exasperated the people.
It was not unusual to see mothers, fathers,
sisters, brothers, etc, separated and thrown
into prison. Here, of course they were tiven
Into the hands of Government officials, and
these minions of the law, who were nothing if
not the tools of the tyrants who oppressed the
people, treated the political prisoners with
despotic ana innmnan severity.
The consequence was that the people
aroused in utter indignation against their
fiendish foes and murders took place In 1875
a spy was killed in Odessa, and in the follow
ing year Trepof, the Governor of St. Peters
burg, was snot by Vera Zasulitch, a young
The facts of the last case are simply these
Trepof had maltreated a man named Iiogolubof
in a prison It caused a terrible excitement
among the people, but nobody seemed to have
the nerve to get redress and reveuge from the
governor. At last Vera Zasulitch came forth,
and shot at the governor in his own office. The
girl was, of course, arrested: but, in spite of
the evidence against her. the jury ac
quitted her. She was set free, but
t'ie government was after her, and.
liaditnot been for the interference of her
friends, n ho got her out of the country, she
vould, probably, have been sent to Siberia
am how, and to-day she lives in Switzerland.
The stand which the jury took in that case
showed the Government how the people
thought on the subject, and they introduced
greater rigors and more stringent measures
against the Radicals.
The Government and the Radicals grew more
and more incensed against one another, and,
for the next year or so.it was open war between
the two parties.
A CLIJIACTEEIC MOVE.
Finally, in 18S7, the Radicals called a con
gress at Lipetzk, in South Rnssia, and it was
there decided to assume an aggressive policy
against the government, simply as a matter of
Then the government instituted capital pun
ishment against all political offenders, and the
blood of many true and noble Russians flowed
after that. The government also invested the
officials with greater executive power, and they
all distinguished themselves bv their heartless
ness and cruelty. But all this barbaiity had
not the desired effect. The people grevr more
incensed, and Radicalism grew more and more,
until it culminated in the cons'iirary which re
sulted in the assassination sf Alexander IL
This opened the Government's eves, and
Louis Melikoff was called to the head of the
army. But even he failed.
Then, when the present Emperor came to tho
throne, the Radicals congratulated themselves
that things looked better for them, because
the voung monarch promised them all kinds of
things immediately after his accession to
power. But his promises were all idle words,
and to-day there is not a man's life more un
certain than thexistcnce of Alexander IIL
You must not think that the Radical party of
Russia is an organized bodv. No! Such a
thmg could not exist tinder the argns eve of
the watchlul Government and police of Rus
sia But conspiracies are constantly being
formed, and tho day will come when the head
of the present monarch will fall, or else a gov
ernment will be introduced into Russia which
will give the poor man the right which was in
culcated in him by his Creator, who did not
make any man to be a slave.

According to the statement of a promi

All Borts of devices are used, and they are
at once novel, ingenious and artistic In
the parlor window of a handsome house in
the East End, there may be seen a beautiful
stork standing upon one leg, with its head
held aloft in delicious conceit, while from
its partly opened bill there beams a bril
liant light which is given a roseate hue by
a daintily slained globe of crimson. In the
upper portion of the house the lamps are
more simple in construction, but bear the
impress of testhetic art Most of these are
in the form of fairy lamps covered with
parti-colored globes representing "beehives,
and here and there on these globes may be
seen a tiny bee oi black glass. In the halls
are lamps of crude iron with quaint-looking
curves and angles; also one or two in brass
repousse work. When illuminated the

she did not know what would be the out
come. "My husband, you see," she explained,
"is a gentleman of elegant leisure. "When
yon ask me what he does for a living all X
