STRIKE SPREADS THROUGH
Hostility to Government Grows Apace in All Por

RULER AND FAMILY
More Troops Brought in and
Done During Night
St. Petersburg. Jan. 24. While the
city is quiet, there is still extreme ten
sion in St. Petersburg, but from Mos
cow comes news that disorders have
begun there, and the lull here may be
only a precursor of another storm.
Not a single mill or factory has start
ed up. This is very significant, as in
dicating the workmen are being sup
plied with the sinews of war.

None has applied for pay at the fac
tories. although some have two weeks'
pay coming to them. Crowds in the
streets are all sullen, and several thous
and additional troops were brought in
at daylight and housed in the barracks.

Machine gun batteries were also
placed at several points for emergen
cies. The terror of the people has been
somewhat relieved, but the dread of
the next few days continues.
Many foreigners are leaving Russia.
The foreign embassies are not mani
festing alarm. They are expressing
confidence that the government will be
able to handle the situation and that
there is nothing now warranting appre
hension for the lives or safety of their
l TIIOHITI:i 0KIIKT.
The authorities insist the danger is
exaggerated and continue to scout the
idea of revolution, and maintain the
ability of the government to meet all
emergencies. Revolutionists are re
ported to be actively preparing bombs
and infernal machines to wreck postal
and telegraph offices and destroy other
government property. The revolution
ists talk wildly of issuing a manifesto
declaring a provisional government.

CZAR A WEAK MAN
Former Russian Ambassador
White Gives Views on
TRUTH IS KEPT FROM HIM
One Man Nowadays Unable to Do the
Thinking for 140,000.000
Ithaca. X. Y.. Jan. 24. Andrew D.
White, former ambassador to Russia
and one of the best informed Ameri
cans on Russian affairs, makes the fol
lowing statement in regard to the sit
uation in St. Petersburg:
"If the czar is a weak man. as the
present emperor is, he can do very
little. A weak man cannot know any
thing about the empire to sp"ak of. be
cause he is surrounded by grand
dukes, women, etc., who tell him what
they want him to believe and keej
at) the truth away from him which
they do not wish him to bear.
Ilralaa of I be Kiuplrr.
"The main difficulty in the whoI3
case is that the emperor is supposed
to do all the thinking for 140.000,000
people scattered over the largest terri
tory iossessed by any government in
the world, with all sorts of different
races, religions and ideas, and this no
man can do and least of all in a time
uadilloaM are latolrrable.
"The simple fact is the evils of the
o'd system have become absolutely in
tolerable. And when you add to that
fact the sending off of immense num
bers of the best young men in the
country to an utterly useless and wick
ed war. and the pressure of taxation
which grinds the people to the dus.
you have a situation which none but
the very strongest rulers in all human
history ran cope with.
"The czar has no strength of charac
ter, no proper education anl is hope
lessly unfit to grapple with the situa
tion. "Xo doubt the worst of the features
of the situation have been kept froru

Mr. White said it was not unlikely
that advisers of the emperor would
try to follow out the jiolicy of Emperor
Xicholas I. who had the ringleaders of
the instirre-ction of SO years ago shot,
hanged or sent to Siberia. He did
not believe howevi-r. that important

rese-nting the tendency of the admin

fairs of the gove-rnment through the
use of protocols, which; they declare, is
a perversion of senatorial prerogative.
A resolution introduced yesterday by
Senator Bacon, calling for information
concerning the protocol with Santo

strong protest against the practice of
the state department. Senator Teller
voiced the sentiment of the senate,

an assumption of authority on the part
