THE TZAR'S PERIL

Revolution for a Text.
THE KILLING OF SOUDEIKIN.
It Wmm Brought A boat by the Latter!
Plata to Kill Counts Tolstoi and Flva,

Bras.. U now a republlo. Tb change from
monarchy cam about in such a wondrously
quick and unprt-cexlentedly bloodless manner
a to astonish the whole thinking world. A
complete revolution, without a drop of blood
shed in defense of the old time honored prin
ciple of monarchy!
The effect of the fall of the empire in Br
11 on the nations of the Old World must be
tremendous. Tremendous, too, must be the
effect upon their kinifs and tsars. The peo
ple there are disnontonted, rebellious; their
king lose ground all the while, whereas the
principle of popular republican government
is gaining new ground.
ilow will my old unhappy country take
the news! How is it with the tiart ITo is
the very Moat of a monarch, whereas Dom
Pedro was not. Through no fault of bis
own, Pom Pedro was inconsistent with the
ideal of a true moiiarchisin he cared, it is
said, for his people to the detriment of his
personal intercHts, iiibruHts of the throue.
The far-sighted tz.tr is consistent be cares
root. It is known, for his people. Under cir
cumstances as in the case of the Brazilian
ex-emperor. Pom Pedro did not rewist, be
cause he could not resist. Such an emperor
aa William would have shown courage to tlie
extent of ignoring a popular demand, where
as a Uar would have awaited, Down like "the
blind fury with the abhorred shears and slit
the thin spun life."
Such, I think, Is a true monarch, and be
ing the truest, the Wiir muit feel sore, and
yiore no than any other inconsistent mon
arch. However little thoy Dom Pedro and
the tsar resernlile each other, the cause of
their doom, effected with respect to one and
expected with regard to the other, is one and
the same. Due digs his own grave by being
good, by doing good to his people; the other
does the same by be-in, bail, by keeping down
And he does it well, this other onel
Heavens, when will my poor, oppressed
country see the light of republican liberty I
When will it tie bnppyf That we, Russians,
would not get rid of our ideal monarch in
the Braiilinn manner, I doubt not; but that
the easy dowuf all of Pun Pedro lightens the
task before us, I feel sure.
People in America brnud us Nihilists with
the name of "amassing." They disturb the
equilibrium, for they never give a name to a
tsar. But speaking for myself as well as for
tho hosts of my murdered friends, I may any
that happy should we all have been could we
have done our duty without taking up arms.
However, things In Russia are just now as
suming a most wonderful shape. We, the
Nihilists, may some dny fold our hands and
with satisfaction otwerva bow the furies
thrnst their knives Into their own flosh.
They do It even now, and the effect is truly
grand, since thoy do it through their own ex
As an Illustration in support of this state
ment, allow me to narrate a receut event,
which, had it not taken place in Russia,
could hardly bo believed.
A former friend of mine, and my comrade
in our war with Kim-iau despotism, Leff
TihomirolT, is one of only two of us who sur
vived the two short years lsTiM), which
seemed to us two scores of years long, aud
during which our terroristic activity at
tained Its apogee. Tihomlroff emigrated to
FYance, and subsequently, disheartened by
the lack of substantial success and the enor
mous losses in the ranks of revolutionists,
contrived to convince himself that It Is the
Uar, and none else, who can make the Rus
sian people happy.
TibomirofT s somersault became known to
the ideal monarch, who graciously allowed
him to return to the country of his fore
fathers. My former comrade is now there,
and has to some extent succeeded in regain
ing the cimlMence of the ever suspicious Uar.
However, before he left Paris, be wrote
an account of the occurrence, which I
am to narrate. The character of the man
guarantees its truth fulness. It would be un
just with regard to the readers to narrate the
event as I know it myself. My attitude
towards the Russian tzarism is well known,
as much to the public as to the tzar. I would
be suspected of exaggerations were I to put
my own color on the picture.
The principal actor is no less a personage
than the chief of the Russian secret imperial
police, CoL Soudeikln, vested with the un
limited powers of bis imperial master. The
secret imperiul police of Russia was formerly
known aa the "third section of his imperial
majesty's own choncollory;" the nam was
abolished as the Institution became abhorred
by the people, but the substance was retained.
Toe secret police, it should be remembered,
deals exclusively with offense and offenders
of a political character; and the Nihilists be
ing the only party actively opposed to the
ideal monarchtsm, Soudeikln directed against
them all the resources of that vast and om
nipresent organization. I say vast, since
there Is not a nook or corner in Russia where
there is not at least a couple of spies preseut;
since there is not one house in St. Petersburg,
Moscow and the other large cities where there
is not a resident detective; since the aggre
gate force of the secret police exceeds one
hundred thousand men.
The readers will presently see that the
chief of the secret imperial police la vested
with powers over the life and death of a Rus
sian subject (there are no "citizens" in
Russia) ; be can and has the right to go by
or against the law, and to Ignore or overrule
As a detective Soudeikln was successful be
yond all expectations placed in him by the
emperor, and while he pursued his calling
with fanaticism worthy a man of convictions
be was free of any principles. Moreover, he
was as free of devotion to the tzar as of hatred
towards Nihilists. Personal interests, an ex
cessive love of himself and a passion to attain
the position of a minister of the Imperial
cabinet, and to rule every one and everything
to his own liking, were the only stimulants
that roused his mind to wonderful successes.
Naturally, principles in nihilists, as much as
in all others, were subjects of bis derision.
Life and happiness, even of his own friends,
he treated with indifference; thoy must serve
bis own ends. Houdoikin was a true repre
sentative of that political and social degrada
tion which slowly but unrelentingly gnaws
into the flesh and boue of the official Russia.
Detective P ,a traitor from the ranks of
Nihilists, betrayed to bis chief a number of
his former comrade revolutionists. His
foliation with the secret police became ulti
mately known, aud he was powerless to do
, any more barm. Ilia life was threatened.
He appealed to Soudeikin for assistance. But
the latter could make no use of him any
longer; another one was needed; one suitable
to replace T , one who has yet the confi
dence of the Nihilists. Degaieff , another spy,
would be a suitable man, but be does not
auswer the last mentioned condition.
"Kill P Houdoikin advises his spy De
gaieff; "this will restore to you the former
coufliienco of Nihilists (Degaieff was also a
traitor), and your work will be effective. Of
course," adds be, "it is a pity to kill him, but
It cannot be helped. P is now useless,
Degaieff found the proposition vf bia chief
rather a Us) awkward one; be remained
Well," continued Houdelklu, seeing Inde
cision on the face of his subordinate, "kill
Bhriaba, if you like; I give you leave. The
effect will be tho same."
Shriaba was also a confidential friend of
Soudeikin ami a successful spy. Like P., be
became known to the Nihilist and his career
The glorious successes of CoL Soudeikin were
righteously appreciated by the Uar. And
bow could it be otherwise! "The true solu
tion of tiro problem of enterprising Nihilism,"
min,"t,'r of the interior,
tount Tolstoi, .!,,. wtUl lkl4J ,ice,
The Uar echoes this sentiment, and, JataraU
t u, ouuuDucin was I us very man to
save the throne. ''Soudeikin mustLe spared
from going with tua to Moscow; why should
be risk his life at such a critical timer ex
claimed once bia majesty, when bis aid re
ported to him of the arrangements made to
Insure bis safety during the time Alexander
II was to be crowned in Moscow as the Uar
of all the Russia.
Such kind disposition of the tzar became
known to the colonel. He was sure the tzar
would make bim a minister were it not for the
Counts Tolstoi and Pleve, respectively minis
ters of the Interior and Justice, who stood in hit
way. The two shrewd counts had a good
reason to fear, in Soudeikin, a powerful com
petitor for their plat, and kept bim in the
background as much as they could, to the
ever growing anger of the colonel. They be
came the principal object of bis hatred; they
must give way. The grudge of a year's
standing finally resolved itaelf into a scheme
calculated to attain the desired end. Degaieff
was taken into confidence.
The scheme was this: Degaieff was te or
ganise a terroristic party of bis own, with
himself as the head of the executive commit
tee. A series of well executed minor murders,
which Soudeikin will tnke care not to discov
er, was to terrorize the tzar and the minis
ters. Meanwhile the colonel was to resign
his poet, to further embarrass the emperor.
This dona, Pgnicff was to execute the final
"Kill Count Tolstoi and some one of the
imperial family, say the Grand Duke Vladi
mir," says Soudeikin. "This will have a sure
effect upon the fear stricken Uar; Tolstoi
will be out of my way; I will become the in
dispensable inan, and will dictate my own
Onco a minister, he, with Degaieff, were to
constitute a secret compact; they would rule
the "underground," a well as the "over
ground," Rusniu; the tzar, the court, the
ministry, the peophi, would be at their
I must add here thnt, notwithstanding the
seeming absurdity, the plans of the chief of
the secret police were well based. Soudeikin,
the most artful and successful Russian de
tective, was recognized as such by every ons
from the emperor down. Terrorized by Nihi
list, the court regarded Soudeikin as their
only guardian; they would concede to bim
anything to have his protection.
The chief detective took care to keep the
Imperial family in a state of perpetual fear
for their lives. Whenever Nihilists showed
signs of fatigue he orgHiiized fictitious ter
roristic circles, plotting murder; he discov
ered these plots, arrested irticlpnnts and
secretly set them free again, once more to
plot and murder.
The preparations to murder Count Tolstoi
and the Grand Duke Vladimir were begun in
earnest. Detectives were told off to watch
the daily movements and the habits of life of
the two selected victims, and a day for the
executiou of the deed apKiuted.
But hern the official conspirator had to
muke a halt.
The way it came to pass deserves to lie nar
rated here: Monster of crime himself, De
gaieff, the intimate friend of Soudeikin, was
uorrill-xl by the cold blooded, conscienceless
machinations of his superior. The man in
him begau to revolt. Gradually his conscience
awakened, he shrank Iwick, he detested Sou
deikin, he abhorred him. lie no longer
wanted to continue his abominable duty ; he
would rather die, but first he must kill Sou
deikiiu Degaieff next appears to the Nihilists. He
does not expect their forgiveness for his in
fernal deeds; he merely asks their help to kill
What a spectacle! And yet the two detect
ives were not alouo. Born and grown in the
atmosphere which he inhaled, Soudeikin was
one amongst all who constitute the ofllrial
Russia, who breathe the sitiue air, infesting,
Jegrading. Repulsive as it i, it is a good ;
omen to those who wish to see Russia free. i
The revolutionists agreed to help, and
Soudeikin died a victim of his owu revolting
system of demoralization.
Little is known of Ivhu ff" life previous
to his becoming a spy. For an offense of a J
political character he was tried by a court
and sentenced to deportation to Siberia.
Thence he wrote to Soudeikin imploring for
giveness and offering his services. He was
at ouce returned to St. Petersburg, and as
quickly became an intimate friend of bis
benefactor. The latter paid full confidence
to bis new acquaintance, often visited hitn in
bis house, chatting and scheming until early
At 8 o'clock in the evening of Dec. 1(5, 1$S7,
Soudeikin was to be the invited guest in the
bouse of bis intimate friend. By this hour
three revolutionists eutered the house and
took positions two behind the entrance door
and one in the library. The chief came, ac
companied by Soudofsky, a relation of his
and a treasurer of the jxliee deportment
The visitors took off their coats and sat at
the table of the reception room. Friendly
greetings being exchanged with the host, the
atter invites tbem to the library. He enters
the room first and places himself against the
window. Soudeikin follows him.
A report of a pistol! The chief shrieks in
terror. He is wounded. He madly rushes
into the vestibule, followed by Soudofsky.
Sharp, shrill cries for help resound through
the rooms J Both are met with blows of
crowbars, and full on the floor. Their ap
peals weaken, and silent death finally ends
their aboiniuable lives.
The revolutionists and the host safely de
part Late in the night two lifeless bodies
were found in the deserted apartments. They
were recognized, and an alarm was sent out
through all the police preclncU of St. Peters
burg. The governor of the province hur
riedly galloped to the palace to report the oc
currence. Soudeikiu's body was escorted to the grave.
Following the cofllu was a floral decoration,
borne by two members of the detective force.
This was sent by the Uarina herself as the
last tribute "to the one who honestly fulfilled
his duties to the end," as the inscription an
nounced. A fit tribute!

Ay, nol He is alive, and will live till he

The common lot is one of sorrow say
at least the pessimists, they who look
at the worst side. Certainly what would
otherwise be a bright existence, is often
shadowed by some ailment that over
hangs it like a pall, obscuring perpetual
ly the radiance that else would light the
path. Such an ailment, and a very com
mon one, is nervousness, or in other
words, weakness of the nervous system,
a condition only irremediable where inef
ficient or improper means are taken to
relieve it. The concurrent experience of
nervous people who have persistently
used Hostetter s Stomach Bitters is; that
it conquers entirely supersensitiveness of
the nerves, as well as diseases so called
which are invited and sustained by
their chronic weakness. As the nerves
gain stamina from the great tonic the
trouble disappears. Use the Bitters for
malaria, rheumatism, biliousness and
