AND HIS HOUSEHOLD

Nerve When Riot

ST. PETERSBURG, Jan. 23— The
flight of the imperial family from
Tsarskoe-Selo after three and a half
days of secrecy and frequent change
of dwelling from palace to palace, was
. to-day's most noteworthy development.
The Emperor hurriedly left Tsarskoe-
Selo this morning when the news had
' come that the strikers from Kolpino
had chosen that palace as the goal of
their march. Despite the reassuring
statements of court dignitaries and
military men, the Czar is alleged lo
• have lost his nerve immediately and to
have announced his intention to repair
to Peterhof, which is his summer resi
Objections occurred to official minds
and Gatchina was suggested instead of
Peterhof by the Dowager Empress. The
Czar consented and the imperial party
thereupon made a hasty departure for
the palace where Alexander 111 lived in
seclusion during his entire reign.
Whether the soldiers can be got to
fraternize with the people it is im
possible to say, but I can affirm that
yesterday a guard of marines stationed
on the quay refused to fire when or
dered to do so by their officers. What
happened to them I am unable to as-
Certain, but the principal muster of
facts in the relations between the Gov
ernment and the people are these:
The troops understood that the spir
it of the orders which they had re
ceived "from Grand Duke Vladimir was
not to spare bullets and to use their
own discretion as to the time and plac%
of firing. Secondly, in most cases, some
of which I beheld myself, the people
were not warned beforehand, but the
bugle was sounded for three or five
seconds and before the last note had
died away firing began.
." In another instance the order was
. given to disperse, but time was not
acoprded to carry it out and the people
could not, if they would, recoil.
In at least one case the troops were
moved to fire by sudden anger and not
, by the necessity for preserving order.
I was not myself a witness of the fol
lowing fact, but I have received a
statement from a well known noble
man, who is willing to attest it pub
"At a police bridge on the Nevsky,"
he said, "I was chatting with a field
surgeon about collisions between the
troops and the people. We were stand
ing beside a Red Cross van. Suddenly
the officer exclaimed, 'Disperse!' The
soldiers fell into firing order and a
member of the public exclaimed: 'You
can show your bravery against your
own people, you fratricides.' The offi
cer cried out, 'Fire!' pointing to the
side whence the word 'fratricide' had
come. There were about twelve wound
ed and dead. I saw one slain woman
lying on her back, having received a
•bullet between the eyes. Beside her
lay an elderly man in a fur cloak.

WILL DEFY CENSORSHIP.
Four St. Petersburg Editors Say They
Will Publish Truth.
ST. PETERSBURG. Jan. 28.—-The
editors of four newspapers, the Russ,
the Viedomosti, the Novosti and the
Grashdanin, declare their intention,
as soon as the printers return to work
and they are able to resume publica
tion, openly to defy tne censorship in
the matter of strike news and Sun
day's affair. They drew up a letter to
the censor to-day, saying they felt the
gravity of the situation, and demand
ed that they be permitted to print the
facts without minimizing or glossing
them over. The Novoe Vremya and
other papers, however, refused to join
• and the letter was not sent, but the
editors of the four papers named agree
to adopt the course Indicated.
It is reported that a number of mills
and factories will start up to-morrow.
Some of the industrial managers be
lieve that the worst Is over. Father
Gopon's message to his followers to
night was: "The Czar does not exist.
No longer pray for liberty."

that in his opinion no revolution is im

Berlin officials Say Czar Bare Not

BERLIN, Jan. 28.—Emperor Wil

age sat ud late last night receiving
press and private telegrams from St.
Petersburg. The keenest interest pre
vails here, where Russia is probably
better understood than elsewhere, be
cause of geographical nearness and
close business relationship. While the

proceeded from the hearts of the peo

It lacks efficient leadership and is

internal situation, the Russian Gov
ernment dare not drop the reins or
the horses will run away. The Gov

GRAND DUKE SNEERS
AT PEOPLE'S DEMAND
More Blood to Flow
if Vladimir Has
Special Dispatch to The Call.
NEW YORK, Jan. 23.—The strongest,
crudest, most imperious man in Rus
sia to-day is Grand Duke Vladimir, the
eldest uncle of the czar. On him in
this emergency depends, to a great ex
tent, the fate of the monarchy. He
seeks to save the throne because he
wants to occupy it himself.
From one who knows him, who saw
him daily for months at a time at a
Russian health resort and who has had
long talks with him, the following de
"His countenance did not move a
muscle when he spoke. I noticed that
his eye lids even did not wink for
minutes at a time. His was a face of
iron, betokening a dominating, imperi
ous, fearless character. When I en
tered his apartment in the wake of an
aid, Vladimir was scribbling a note
at a little desk. He Jumped up and
put. out his hand.
" 'How do you do?' he said, in very
good English. Glad to see you. Sit
"He drew his chair close up to mine.
The aid left the room and we started
to talk about Russian affairs and poli
tics. It was easy to recognize the im
periousness of the man in his sharp,
clear-cut sentences. His bearded face
was shaven at the chin, exposing a
tenacious, iron Jaw that denoted his
strength of character. '*
"He talked with surprising frankness,
revealing that he strongly favored the
expansion of Russia into Manchuria
and the Far East. That policy, which
led to the war with Japan, has been
ascribed to Vladimir, and I knew he
vigorously urged on the Government.
I asked him whether it was true that
the was kept in ignorance of
many things that went on In Russia,
especially in connection With the peo
ple's demand for greater freedom. His
reply was a sneer at the persons who
were foolish enough to believe such re
ports. The rulers of Russia, he said,
knew what was best for the people; the
masses were not fitted yet to control
themselves. I spoke of a conversation
I had had with a Russian official, who
told me that the people could be al
lowed to advance only a step at a time,
because to give them too much free
dom would be to turn their heads and
ruin the country. Vladimir expressed
his agreement with the statement.
"If Vladimir has * free hand the
revolution will be crushed with.an iron
hand, though Russia runs with blood."
SERVICES FOR THE CZAR.
Russians Give Thanks That He Es-
caped Injury In Riots.
Special services were held yesterday
in the Russian Greek Church on
Powell street to give thanks that the
Czar had escaped injury in the St. Pe
tersburg disturbances. Bishop Tikhen
of the local diocese spoke at some
length on the present crisis in Russia.
He gave It as his opinion that the peo
ple had been misguided and failed to
realize the enormity of their actions in
rebelling against the lawful authority
of the state.

ST. PETERSBURG, Jan. 23.—Emper
or Nicholas is completely prostrated by
grief. He is reported to be almost In a
State of collapse over the situation. In
the meantime everything awaits his
decision. All the schools are closed.
Every window in Grand Duke Ser
gius' St. Petersburg Palace was broken
by a mob during'the night.
| The story of the events immediately
i preceding and during yesterday's out-
I break, as viewed by omeial'eyes, is giv
j en in the Oiheial Messenger as follows:
"All attempts of the factory inspec-
I tors to pacify the workmen were fruit
| less and every worker of the large
factories joined the strike, which
spread quickly and extended to nearly
ali the works in the city. At the same
time the demands of the men increased
and these were formulated in writing,
mostly by Father Gopon. The employ
ers discussed the demands and decided
that if some of them were satisfied it
could not fail to ruin industry, while
others deserved to be examined and
partially conceded. Furthermore, will
ingness was expressed to negotiate
with the men, but not with the strik
ers' organization. The workmen re
fused to agree to it and violated the
agreements between the masters and
men of the different factories.
REVOLI TIOMSTS TO BLAME.
"As the strike was being conducted
without disturbance of public order, no
repressive measures were adopted and
not a single person was arrested. The
agitation of the workmen's organiza
tion was, however, soon joined by agi
tation of revolutionary circles. On the
morning of January 21 the Workmen's
Association, led by Father Gopon, ap
peared with open revolutionary tend
encies. On Sunday, Father Gopon drew
up a petition of workmen to the Em
peror, which contained, besides de
mands on behalf of the men, insolent
demands of a political character.
Among the workmen verbal and writ
ten notifications were circulated, urging
the necessity for a meeting on January
22 on the Palace Square, In order,
through Father Gopon, to submit the<
petition to the Emperor. One of the
demands was of a political character
and the real purpose of the meeting on
the Palace Square was concealed from
the workmen. Fanatical speeches
which Father Gopon, forgetting his j
clerical dignity, addressed to the men, !
and criminal agitation excited the men
to such an extent that on January 22
large crowds proceeded to the center
of the city.
SERIES OF BLOODY COLLISIONS.
"At some points bloody collisions oc
curred betweeh them and the troops, in
consequence of their refusal to obey
the police regulations, or owing to their
direct attacks on the troops. The lat
ter were obliged to fire in the Schlus
setberg causeway, near the Narva Tri
umphal Gate: in Troitjki Square, and
in the fourth line of the Vasslliostrov
quarter; in the Alexander Gardens, at
the corner of Nevsky " Prospect and
Gogol streets, near the police bridge
and at the Kazan Cathedral. In the
fourth line the populace erected three
barricades of planks and wire. On one
of these a red flag was hoisted. From
the windows of neighboring bouses
shots were fired and stones were
thrown at the military. The crowd
took swords from the policemen and
armed themselves therewith. They pil
laged the Schaff small arm factory and
carried off about a hundred swords, a
large number of which, however, the
police recovered. The crowd destroyed
telegraph wires and knocked down
poles. The municipal building in the•
Second District was attacked and de
molished. In the evening five shops on
the St. Petersburg side were plun
STRIKE HEADQUARTERS CLOSED.
Interior Minister Sviatopolk-Mirsky
at 11 o'clock this morning telegraphed
orders to close the headquarters of the
Workmen's Union. This was done by
the workmen themselves without police
After the last volley in the Vas
siliostrov quarter at midnight the men
abandoned the few barricades which
they held untir that hour and retired.
The word was passed around by the
leaders to remain quiet for the present.
During the night a fine, damp snow
fell, covering the ugly red stains and
obliterating all traces of the conflict
of yesterday and with the break of
day the city, except for the presence
of troops in the streets, had resumed
its normal appearande. The shops had
reopened and general traffic was par
tially resumed. The men appeared at
work in several of the factories and
mills, including the works of the Rus
sian Westinghouse Company, but the
managers in a majority of eases told
them to remain away for a few days
and that in the meantime they would
receive their pay.
The people generally were nervous
and apprehensive and kept indoors.
The strikers, looking weary and hag
gard after the excitement of yester
day, collected in sullen little groups
in the vicinity of their various head
quarters and yesterday's barricades
awaiting the decision of their leaders
regarding the plan of action. They
were in an ugly mood and broke out
in curses whenever soldiers marched
GCARDS HOLD THE BRIDGES.
An early morning tour by a press
correspondent showed that a cordon
of troops barred the entrance of the
city from the big industrial sections.
The bridges were still held by the
guards regiments, it being rather
strange to see the officers of the Im
perial Guards, the pets of the St.
Petersburg drawing-rooms, riding
thoroughbreds and doing police duty in
the streets around the palace. There
was no. trace of excitement. The big
square which yesterday was filled with
troops was empty, but inside the palace
court, beyond the sight of the passers-
by, a regiment of dragoons and several
companies of infantry were quartered.
Rumors were current that the stri
kers proposed to proclaima general at
tack on property and a reign of an
archy, but the labor leaders denied this
in the most vigorous terms. One of
Father Gopon's lieutenants declared
that the leaders of the strikers had
resolved to preach the gospel of armed
resistance and the overthrow of au
tocracy, but that it did not carry with
It a threat of pillage or an attack on
GOPON EI.l DES THE POLICE.
The police have not yet been able to
locate Father Gopon, though they, are
searching for him everywhere. His
whereabouts is known only to half a
dozen trusted lieutenants, through
whom he issued orders.
No newspapers have appeared since
Friday except the Official Messenger,
containing the Government decrees,
which is printed under military pro
tection at the office of the State Bank,
where the banknotes are issued. Offi
cial accounts of yesterday's affair were
posted on all the bulletin boards. Strik
ers who came to read spat upon them.
As the day advanced the crowds on
Nevsky Prospect increased, but the
police did not allow them to collect.
Squadrons of Cossacks, with lances
and carbines, patrolled the thorough
fares as a reminder of what would
occurr at the least disturbance. A
half regiment of infantry stacked arms
and remained on duty on the Morskaia.
a fashionable boulevard of the city,
and at noon troops were again march
ed into the Palace square, where peo
ple wire once more trying to collect.
All the Grand Dukes' palaces were
T HOOPS FED ON STREETS.
St. Petersburg has often witnessed
rioting, clearing the streets of demon
strators and Cossack charges with
whips and sabers, but the bloodshed
of yesterday is unparalleled in its his
tory and the many stories of brutality
told by the populace seem to have con
vinced them that a programme of des
perate blood-letting was planned to
overawe the strikers. This is indig
nantly denied by the authorities, who
protest earnestly that they regret that
the situation compelled such stern
measures. They say order had to be
restored or the city would have fallen
Into the hands of the mob.
The troops received their noon meal
in the streets, steaming camp kitchens
being driven from place to place. An
instance of the perfect military man
agement occurred shortly after 1
o'clock to-day, when there was a dis
turbance on the Palace bridge. A
bugle rang out and in less than a min
ute five squadrons of cavalry emerged
from neighboring streets at a gallop,
charging to the alarm. But the few
obstreperous, half-drunken strikers had
already been overpowered, placed in
sleighs and taken to jails.
GENERAL. BEATEN TO DEATH.
Among the authenticated horrors of
yesterday was the case of an aged
general, whose sledge was stopped by
the infuriated people as he was driving
in the direction of the troops.
"Are you going to order them to fire
on us?" yelled the crowd.
When the general ordered his coach
man to drive on, he was instantly
struck on the head by a well dressed
person in a sable fur coat. The gen
eral was then thrown out of the sledge
and beaten and trampled to death.
There are continued rumors of dis
satisfaction among the troops here. It
Is now reported that in addition to the
Moscow' Guard Regiment, the Finland
and Isrr.alosky regiments declined to
obey orders to fire yesterday.
Toward 5 o'clock, driving up the
Nevsky Prospect, a press correspond
ent saw through the gathering gloom
the blaze of eampflres In the Palace
square, with the dark forms of troop
ers sitting around them.
The Nevsky Prospect Itself was
ablaze with light. Strikers and curi
osity-seekers promenaded the two
miles of sidewalk between the Admi
ralty and the Nicholas station, and
squadrons of hussars and cuirassiers
rode up and down in endless proces
sion. The crowds seemed peaceful
enough, the watchword evidently be
ing "Don't abuse the troops." The
only shouts heard were a few isolated
CITY THROWN INTO DARKNESS.
Suddenly the electric lights in the
upper section, between the bazaar
called Gostinny Dvor and the Nicholas
station, were extinguished, and the
thoroughfare was plunged without
warning into utter darkness, which
was not relieved even by the lights in
shop windows, as all the stores were
closed. The scene was. weird and
funereal. The driver at first refused
to move on, fearing some hidden dan
ger, but he finally was persuaded to
proceed, exclaiming with Russian
stoicism: "One can die only once."
A deathly silence prevailed, height
ened by the rustle of hundreds of feet
on the snow-clad sidewalks, the muf
fled tread of looming squadrons and
the lugubrious hammering of- shop
keepers, taking precautions against
possible attack by boarding up the
windows of their stores with rough
lumber. The curious hastily scurried
in adjoining streets, finding their way
home as best they could through the
inky darkness. Only a fringe of sul
len strikers and rough characters re
mained, the police warning all to get
home as soon as possible.
TROOPS USE FLATS OF SABERS.
The only bright spot was a blase of
light from one of the courtyards of
the Annilchkoff Palace, whence the
Empress Dowager yesterday fled to
Tsarskoe-Selo. Beyond stood the
dark, grim palace of Grand Duke Ser
The crowd was particularly dense
around the approaches to the Nicholas
station. Here, in the darkness, mau
rauders attacked a few news venders'
stalls, but a grim' row of infantry
around the station buildings effectu
ally discouraged violence. Other dis
turbers broke numerous windows in
the Gostinny Dvor and the Kiosk at
the corner of the Annilchkoff Palace
garden. A bench torn up from the
adjoining park was placed In the
roadway In the hope that it might
trip up cavalry. Some policemen
were roughly handled and disarme"d
in side streets, but there was no firing.
As the correspondent drove down' the
Nevsky Prospect, troopers were clear
ing the sidewalks of loiterers, using
the flats of their sabers and causing a
This continued until 9 o'clock to
night, when the lights were again
turned on and revealed the Nevsky
Prospect almost deserted.
DEEP CONCERN IN VIENNA.
Belief Expressed That Revolutionary
Spirit Will Not Down.
VIENNA, Jan. 23.—The occurrences
of Sunday in St. Petersburg have made
the deepest impression here upon all
classes and are practically the sole top
ic of discussion at the principal cafes
and clubs. There being no Sunday aft
ernoon papers here, the people did not
learn the full story of the St. Peters
! burg riots until this morning. A few
! of the newspapers here posted bulletins
Sunday afternoon outside their build
ings, but these were read by compara
tively few, most of the Viennese being
then in the cafes, theaters or conceit
This morning the papers published
extra editions with black head lines,
most of them reading "Revolution has
broken out In St. Petersburg." The
afternoon newspapers print page after
page of St. Petersburg dispatches,
practically excluding all other news.
The lack of a repressive censorship in
Russia and the fact that the whole
story apparently was telegraphed from
St. Petersburg were much commented
upon and declared to be unprecedented.
The St. Petersburg occurrences were
called "A full-fledged revolution," "A
day of terror" and "Bloody Sunday." „
The feeling prevails in anti-Russian
quarters that open revolution has be
gun and that there is no telling where
it will end. All the members of Jhe .
Russian legation were at the Embassy
I all day anxiously reading and discuss
ing the news received from the news
papers or brought in by diplomats.
Diplomatic circles here are deeply
concerned over the St. Petersburg
news. It is believed, however, that the
present disorder will soon be put down
by the troops now in St. Petersburg,
but in some quarters it is thought that
in so doing It will only increase the bit
terness of the rage of the people and In
no wise help the situation or put a stop
to the growth of the revolutionary
All the newspapers comment on the
occurrences in St. Petersburg as ex
tremely serious and deeply significant,
and the movement of the people of St.
Petersburg toward the Winter Palace
is compared to the march of the people
of Paris on Versailles in 1789. It is de
clared; the Emperor's answering the
peoples petition with bullets will irre
trievably widen the breach between
him and his subjects.
The newspapers also publish sketches
of the lives of Emperor Nicholas,
Father Gopon and many of the higher
Russian officials at considerable length.
ELDER IS TURNED OVER
TO THE UNDERWRITERS
Owners Accept Insurance and Waive
Their Rights In the Wrecked
PORTLAND, Jan. 23.—The steam
ship George W. Elder, which sunk In
the Columbia River yesterday, has
been turned over to the insurance un
derwriters, her owners, the Harriman
interests, preferring to accept the in
surance rather than keep the wreck
and take the chances of raising her.
The crew has been paid off and the
officers have gone to San Francisco to
take charge of the steamer Costa Rica*
which will be placed on the run.

Seldom, if ever, is there any doubt
about the effect produced by the use
of Pyramid Pile Cure, as Is shown
by the experience given above. The
proprietors of this remedy have thous
ands of similar letters on file, and
surely no better proof of the merit of
the preparation could be asked; when
it is borne in mind that these letters
are wholly unsolicited, there is cer
tainly cause for pride in the remedy.
Pyramid Pile Cure is sold by drug- '
gists for fifty cents a package, and if

if asked to do so. Accept ho sub

urged to write Pyramid Drug Co

describing the causes and cure of piles,
as it affords much useful information
and is sent free for the asking.
