AX MAY FALL UPON CZAR.
Grand Ducal Party Is Said to Be Open-
ly Discussing Hit Overthrow.
St. Petersburg, Nov. 14. —Abdica-
tion or removal of the czar, openly
talked of in high circles, divides at
tention with another sensation.
The dreaded intervention of* Ger
many in the Russian crisis is believed
to have come. The kaiser, when he
learned of the Cronstadt riots, sent a
win less message to the caar offering
to place the German northern squad
ron at his disposal. The czar sent
back a message of thanks. It has not
transpired whether the offer goes be
yond safeguarding the sovereign's per
son, but inasmuch as a Germrn war
ship has been stationed off Peterhof
for several days for this purpose it
is inferred that Emperor William's
proposal has a wider significance.
Little has been siid publicly of the
contemptuous ill will of fashionable
regiments toward the sovereign since
the peace of Portsmouth was signed.
It was soon evident the army would
seek a scapegoat and it is now becom
ing manifest that it will be the czar
himself. This found its loudest expres
sion over the expulsion of Grand Duke
Cyril from the navy. The decree order
ing his expulsion evoked such Out
bursts of indignation in both navy and
army as would have led to the malcon
tent.s being court martialed and shot
If the> had been servants of the kiser.
Grand Duke Vladimir took the side of
bis son energetically and promptly re
signed. Now Vladimir, whatever his
character, has the support of the im
perial guards brigade, which is espe
cially charged with the protection of
the emperor's person.
The high world here began to ridi
cule the sovereign and speak con
temptuously of his character. From
that they began to say there was no
possible future for him as a Russian

Blizzard Stopped Rioting.
St. Petersburg, Nov. 18.—A fierce
northeast blizzard and snow, which
blew down on St. Petersburg, prevent
ed bloodshed in the Russian capital to
day. The bitter cold, by forcing the
strikers to remain indoors, did more to
preserve order than all the Cossack
cavalry patrolling the streets.
Heavy military reserves are stationed
in all the industrial districts, but up to
midnight there was no rioting.
There were rumor* of collisions in dif
ferent parts of the city, but on investi
gation they turned out to be falEe.
There is much anxiety over the out
come of the new strike. The general
feeling is it will not be passive, as was
the recent one.

Massacre Unparalleled May Follow If
People Continue Demand for Free
dom—lron Heel Presses Hard—
Warsaw Is Panic Stricken, Jews Are
Arming Against Mobs.
St. Petersburg, Nov. 14.—Martial
law has been proclaimed throughout
all Poland, and regiment after regi
ment of troopa upon whom the czar
believes he can depend are now being
rushed on special trains to put down
the movement for freedom in that an
cient kingdom. Should the citizens
continue In their demands that au
tonomy be granted them the next tew
weeks will witness scenes of massacre
and bloodshed such as have not been
witnessed since the last general up
rising for a "free Poland."
■ The censorship is again very active,
and all messages from Warsaw show
plainly that they have been tampered
With in transmission.
The proclamation of martial law in
all of the 10 governments of Russian
Poland has caused surprise and ex
asperation, and there are apprehen
sions tnat it will provoke disturbances
worse than those that have already
taken place. Warsaw is panicstricken.
There are persistent rumors of the
organization of anti-Jewish riots, and
the houses of Jews are barricaded
and watched night and day. The Jews
are arming themselves with knives,
revolvers and rifles. Owing to the
general strike the distress at Warsaw
is hourly increasing and there is a
scarcity of coal and food.
Poland is not to be permitted to be
come a second Finland. The Russian
government, in a strongly worded com
munication published this morning,
serves notice on the Polish nation
alists that, for good or ill, tne ancient
kingdom of Poland has now become an
Integral part of the Russian empire,
and that while the government intends
to fully observe the national rights of
Poland, any attempt to wrest Polish
autonomy from the emperor would be
considered an act of revolt, and would
lead the Poles into the sorrowful paths
trodden by them in 1831 and 1863.
The Russian authorities recognize
the gravity of the movement in which
two antagonistic parties, the national
ists and the socialists under the lead
ership of such Poles as Henrik Sienki
wicz, the novelist, have joined forces,
and they declare that none of the bene
fits of the emancipation manifesto can
be conferred on "a country in revolt."
An ofucial communication issued
this morning recalls the fact that the
ukase of December 25 last estaolished
a basis for the gradual renovation of
the civil life of Russian subjects, and
points out that the measures adopted
in pursuance of that ukase affected
equally the Polish people.
ROBBERS PUT ON MUCH STYLE.
Hansom Carriage, Liveried Coachman,
New York, Nov. 14.—During the
absence of the private watchman on
guard at Schumann's Sons jewelry
store at Hroadway and Twenty-second
street, thieves entered the place Sun
day and carried off $10,000 worth of
silverware. The robbers drove to the
store in a hansom carriage, with a
coachman in livery, and having noted
the departure of the watchman enter
ed the front door with false keys. The
presence of the carriage attracted no
attention and half an hour later the
robbers came out, placed their plunder
in the carriage and drove away. The
robbery was discovered a few minutes
later when the watchman returned and
found the door open.
All the silverware was taken from
showcases in the store. An attempt
by the robbers to open a safe in the
basement containing several hundred
thousand dollars' worth of jewelry was

New York. —Charles Knox, the chair
man of the Tammany hall law commit
tee, announced that every step taken
by Mr. Hearst and the municipal own
ership league for a recount of the
votes cast at the recent election would
be bitterly opposed. Mr. Knox said
that the basis for the opposition would
lie the decision of the court of appeals
in 19Q4, written by Judge A. B. Parker,
now Mayor McClellan's senior counsel.
This decision was against the opening
of the ballot boxes, and is, according
to Mr. Knox, the law of the state now.
The language of the decision was to
the effect that the opening of the bal
lot boxes was fraught with great dan
ger and was Inadvisable.
