In the Old
Berlin. Jan. 25. A battle between
the troops and the citizens of Radom
in Russian Poland, resulted in the
killing of an officer and between 40
and 50 soldiers and nearly 100 work
men and reservists. The citizens lat

-Troijs now hold the town, paradin
the -streets and . firing whenever n
crowd assembles. It is believed many
more persons have been killed in this
way. According to the newspaper re
ports, the uprising at Radom was
caused by the news of Sunday's mas
sacre at St. Petersburg. The workmen
quit their i!aces cf employment simul
taneously and paraded the streets,
shouting "Down with the czar." "Down
with the murderers of children."
Some men had revolvers, while oth
tr carried explosives. Tnelr ciuos
attracted the attention of the reserves
in the barracks, and they broke down
the gates and joined the mob.
The governor turned out the troops
to suppress the outbreak, but the riot
ers violently resisted. Their leader
discharged his revolver and the cap
tain of infantry fell dead. Another
officer also was shot. The commander
of the gendarmerie then ordered his
men to fire on the ringleader, and the
latter fell badly wounded. Gendarmes
and troops advanced and there was a
desperate fight over the body of the
ringleader, who. after the demonstra
tors had been driven back by bayo
ne's, was hacked to death by the
swords of the gendarmes.
The mob thereupon rushed on the
troops and a struggle occurred at
close quarters in which another officer
and 40 or 50 soldiers and nearly a hun
