Is Any Man Safe
In a drunken quarrel over an
electien bet the postmaster of St.
Cloud assaulted a friend and
beat him to insensibility. So
seriously injured was the post-
master's victim that it was but a
day or two ago that he regained
consciousness and he is still un-
able to speak or to communicate
with anyone in any way. His as-
sailant, the postmaster of St.
Cloud, is still at liberty and no
move whatever has been made to
call him to account for the deed,
although his victim has lain for
days at death's door.
The grand jury of Stearns
county investigated the matter
and reported that they were un-
able to learn the condition of the
victim and that there was noth-
ing upon which an indictment
could be based. At the same
time the man lies in the hospital
with a clot of blood at the base of
his brain and the doctors say
that if he lives seven weeks while
the clot is disappearing, he will
It begins to look as though no
man coald bfe safe from the hands
of the butcher in Minnesota.
PETITION TO THE CZAR.
^..'rtsians Desire a Direct Voice in the
St. Petersburg, Nov. 21.The day
may mark a red letter in the Russian
calendar. About 100 representatives
of provincial zemstvos assembled prl
vately at 2 p. m. with the avowed pur
pose of presenting to Emperor Nich
olas, through Interior Minister Svia
topolk-Mirsky, a truthful picture of the
internal conditions of Russia coupled
with recommendations pointing out
in plain terms the necessity for call
ing a legally empowered constituent
assembly to have a direct voice in the
government. The word "constitution,"
however, will be carefully avoided.
The Liberals have been greatly ex
cited by the developments of the last
few days. The meeting was to be
held at the duma, or city hall, but at
the last moment official auspices were
refused, the emperor withdrawing his
Many of the zemstvos' representa
tives attribute the emperor's attitude
primarily to the influence of Grand
Duke Sergius, M. Pobedonosteff, the
procurer general of the holy synod,
and M. Sassonoff, a member of the
council of the empjh^. and indirectly
to such reactionariS, as Merchersky,
Strumer and Suchinsky. The two lat
ter were the late Interior Minister von
Plehve's assistants, who were promot
ed to the council of the empire. When
Prince Sviatopolk-Mirsky dispensed
with their services the spectre of the
constitution was successfully raised,
according to their view. They are
not disposed to criticise Prince Svia
topolk-Mirsky, whose good intentions
they do not question. They believe
he is powerless, but nevertheless they
express disappointment at the fact
that he yielded.
At the meeting in the afternoon
seven of the ten articles composing
the prepared memorandum were adopt
ed. These sections declares that the
"abnormal conditions in Russia are
the result of the complete estrange
ment of the government and people,
due to the absence of essential, requi
site mutual confidences." These sec
tions also declare that the conditions
necessitate freedom of conscience,
speech, press and the privilege of
meeting in union and assert that the
peasants must be placed on an equal
ity with the other classes.
REFUGEES FROM VLADIVOSTOK.
Russian Warships There Said to Be
in Bad Shape.
Chefoo, Nov. 21.The steamers
Taiping and Progress, carrying 1,000
Vladivostok Chinese, arrived here
during the day. They report that the
former British steamer Allanton left
Vladivostok laden with ammunition
Nov. 12 in an attempt to run to Port
Arthur. Another source says the
steamer Victoria, laden with provis
ions, has succeeded in running the
blockade of Port Arthur.
A passenger of the Taiping says
the Russian protected cruiser Bogatyr
is held up by pontoons at Vladivostok,
while two other warships are less se
riously damaged. It is not known how
the damages were received.
The Japanese are pouring provis
ions, ammunition, clothing, etc., into
Newchwang in view of the approach
of the time when the ice will close
Negotiations on Subject of Anglo-Rus
St. Petersburg, Nov. 21.The nego
tiations on the subject of the Anglo
Russian convention are practically
concluded. Only one small minor
point remains to be settled and that
is of such slight importance that For
eign Minister Lamsdorff and Ambas
sador Hardinge this afternoon will dis
cuss the question as to how and where
the signatures are to be exchanged.
In substance the change in the lan
guage regarding the determination of
the responsibility by the international
commission will make the convention
provide for the location of any blame
which is found to exist upon any
persons of Russian, British or foreign
line as we mention.
Former President and Cashier of Ohio
Toledo, Nov. 21.Dr. Calvin Hath

and making false entries on its books
to cover up the shortage. The ac

missioner Gaines and were released
on $5,000 bail each pending hearing
later. The shortage came to light sev
eral months ago and was made up by
the other stockholders.
HIS EVERY ACT HONEST.
Ex-Mayor Perry Denies Complicity in
Grand Rapids Boodling.
Grand Rapids, Mich., Nov. 21.Ex-
Mayor George H. Perry, who is on trial
charged with Taribery in connection
with the Lake Michigan water deal,
made a complete and sweeping denial
of complicity in the deal while on the
witness stand. He denounced the
story told by Lant K. Salsbury, the
people's witness, and Fred H. Garman,
one of the promoters of the deal, as
false and declared that his every act
in connection with the water matter
was prompted by honest conviction.
MAN WASHED OVERBOARD.
Fishing Schooner Had Hard Time in
Gloucester, Mass., Nov. 21.The
fishing schooner Arthur D. Story has
arrived from George Banks and re
ported the loss of one man and the
injury of two others during the gale
last Monday. The schooner tossed
helplessly for hours. The crew of
fourteen lashed themselves to the ves
el and suffered severely. During the
height of the storm the main boom
gave way and one man was swept
overboard, and lost.

in the administration. Commissioner
Jones has been in office about seven,

ident McKinley in 1897.
