b ent What the Cisr and Czarina Dis
covered In Finland Meaning of Be
eent Wholesale Arrests of Nobles and
Other Intelligent Russians.
Loxdos, Nov. 17. Since the arrest at
Moscow, on Thursday last of about a
hundred members of noble families,
litterateur, and others, charged with be
ing concerned in the movement looking
to the creation of a popular assembly or
parliament similar to the Tenisky labor
assemblies under the early czars, it baa
become known that this alleged conspiracy
was of much wider extent than at first
supposed, and it is said that several hun
dred people have been taken into custody
in addition to those referred to. From
the time the discovery of this "plot" be
came known the correspondents in Rus
sia of 'the news egeatf es;and"hewspapera
have been, doing their utmost to discover
the true inwardness of these wholesale ar
rests; but apparently, without success for
little or no news regarding this revolu
tionary movement can be procured.
The Kuowlng Russian Exile.
The censorship was perfect and the po
lice advised correspondents to make uo
comments on these recent events. But
iu this city there are a number of promi
nent Russian exiles who seem to be able
to laugh at the Russian police and who
are kept constantly well informed by
some secreet means as to nearly all that
transpires in Russia. Oue of the most
prominent of these refugees was ques
tioned in regard to the large number of
arrests now being made in Russia. After
the correspondent had pledged himself
not to use his informant's name the lat
ter said in substance that never in the his
tory of the Russian empire was the situa
tion of affairs within the dominions of the
czar so desperate and so weighted with
danger to the imperial regime. Not a quar
ter of the real horrors of the famine are
Communities Wiped Off the-Karth.
In some sections, said the Russian gen
tleman referred to, the distress is as great
as when the cholera or the plague swept
down upon villages and (owns and nearly
wiped, all their inhabitants off the face
oft ha earth. Even were the government
so constituted that an honest attempt
coulcj be made to relieve the sufferers;
even had the government at its disposal-
the immense sums of money which
would be necessary to relieve the dis
tressed, thousands more of them would
perish before help could reach them, even
supposing that the inclemency' of it. Rus
sian winter would permit the freer trans
portation of supplies. In view of the fam
ine, official crookedness, disgraceful dis
closures in high circles, the danger of war
and the practical failure of the new Rus
sian loan, Russia's rulers are in a position
which is far from enviable, and to which
war would be a relief, as it would take
the public mind off the contemplation of
official nbu-es. '
THE PARLIAMENTARY MOVEMENT.
A Reform Measure That Only Created a
Desire for More.
"The movement in favor of parlia
mentary government," continued the in
formant, "began tc gain great, headway
in July last when the new governing in
stitutions of cemshinatchalniki, the
chief reform introduced by the late Count
Tolstoi, was established for the first time
in the province of St. Petersburg. These
natchalniki, or district administration,
were desigued to exercise an a mi u itera
tive, judicial, domestic, and generally
patriarchial control over the affairs of
the peasaut ry. and they were to be ap
pointed iu a few provinces at a time. This
was a step in tlie right direction, but it
did not get very far beyond the first
stages, although it served to still further
excite the appetite of those who dreamed
of free government for some kind of a
parliament if only an assembly of a local
j- Rue! l.adly 3Iisg overned.
This reform slopped where it was,
end .amounting to but little. Intelligent
Russians grew more and more impressed
with the fact that Russia is misgoverned,
and discontent is making itf.elf felt on all
sides. The 07. ir knows" it. He felt ic in
Finland when on his recent visit there.
The; people used to show their loyalty in
the plainest manner This time tbey held
aloof, aud there never was any one to
welcome- the czar and czarina except the
official?, at any place visited. Both the
czar and rsarina were visibly affected by
this change iu the demeanor of the peo
ple, aud upon one occasion the czar re
marked to a prominent local ofllcial, that
in bis opinion the Finnish people bad
changed their characters. To this the
Finn replied: "Sir, the people have' re
mained the same, but tbey do not under
stand bow to conceal tBeir thoughts; they
sing when tbey are contented and they
weep when they are unhapy.
: Attempted to Arouse Loyalty.
Finally it was at Wiborg that General
GrUScnberg. governor of the district, did
his utmost to organize a loyal demonstra
tion,' and be invited a singing society at
Helsiogsfors to sing before the imperial
couple. Baron Fnorring, the president of
the Society referred to, replied that , he
must refuse, both on account of the state
of pablic feeling and for pecuniary rea
sons! Then General Grissenberg. disre
garding the first plea, offered a large sum
of money if the society would appear be
fore their majesties, but this time the in
vitation was refused point blank.
Tss "Utile Father" a Bark Number.
This is about the state of feeling among
the peasantry throughout the empire.
"Holy Russia" no longer believes in the
infallibility of the "Little Father" and
they have learned by rude lessons that ha

fing wnen wholesale arrests are lnnaa

taking steps towards providing the people
with some crude form of self-government.
Means Reform or War.
Tb,'!rS ttre out few ways out of the grow
ing difficulty, continued your correspond
ent's informant. The czar must give Rus
sia some little liberty of action, or else
drown out the present sentiment in favor
of such legislation by plunging into war.
The utterances of the Emperor Francis
Joseph recently would eem to indicate
that Austria looks ux.n war as nearly
certain in the near future. Germany
seems to have the same feeling, and so
who can tell what will happen before the
year 1893 expires.
Beginning of a Great Revolution.
The English newspapers, finally said
the Russian gentleman, simply class the
recent arrests at Moscow of the leaders of
the movement in favor of establishing
some kind of s parliament as one of those
ordinary police raids familiar to Russia.
I go much farther than that and say that
it was the first movement in a great revolution-
which will sooner or later give
Russia a parliament.
KING OF THE MOUND BUILDERS.
A Skeleton Found In Ohio That Must
Have Iteen linried 6O0 Tears.
Ciiilucoi HE, O., Nov. 17. Mr. Warren
K. Morehead and Dr. Cresson, who have
been prosecuting excavations here for the
past three months in the interest of the
World's fair, have just made one of the
richest finds of the century iu the way of
pre historic remains. These gentlemen
have confined their excavation to the
Hopewell farm, seven miles from here,
upon which are located some twenty odd
Indian niouuds. On Saturday they were
at work on a mound 500 feet iu length,
feet wide and 28 feet in height.
t;ound a topper Kncased Soldier.
At the depth of fourteen feet, near the
center of the mound, they exhumed the
massive skeleton of a man encased in a
veritable copper armor. The head was
covered by an oval-shaped copper cap.
The jaws had copper mouldings, and the
arms were dressed iu copper. Copper
plates covered the chest and stomach. On
each side of the head on protruding sticks
were wooden antlers ornamented with
copper. The mouth was stuffed with
genuine pearls of immense size, but much
decayed by the ravagns of time. A round
the neck was a necklace of bears' teeth
set with pearls.
His Wire Was There, Too.
At the side of the male skeleton was
also found a female skeleton, the two be
ing supnosed to be man aud wife. It is
estimated that the bodies were bnried
where they were found fully 600 years
ago. Messrs. Morehead and Cresson con
sider this find one of the most important
ones that they have yet made aud believe
that they have at last found the king of
me mound builders.
THE KNIGHTS AND W. C. T. U.
Powderly's Men Pa l'on Some of the
Toledo. J., Xov. IT. The general as
sembly, Knights of Labor, yesterday ap
proved the demand of the Woman's
Christian Temperance nnion for equal
wages and equal suffrage. The second
resolution of the women declaring in
favor of an equal standard of pnrity for
the sexes was approved. The assembly
could not agree to the women's petition
that the World's fair be closed to work
and open for worship Sunday. On the
contrary the knights declared in favor of
its being kept open on Sunday for the ed
ucation of the masses, provided that no
person employed at the fair shall work
more than six days of eight hours each
per week. The fourth resolution, asking
the knights to petition the authorities to
close saloons and prevent the sale of
liquor ou the fair grounds, was rejected.

Why It Would Re a Good Thing to Pat

BALtJMoRE, Jjfov. 17. The Baltimore

point thai bAs been made that the Demo

man,', who, if elected can succeed himself: ;
"Sboald . Cleveland And Boies be nomi
nated and elected "in ISOi Boies, with
some eastern or southern man, prebaps a
Maryland man, 'in the second place, would
naturally lead the Democracy in 189ft.
Thus would be secured the continuance
of leadership, some of our Xew York con- '
temporaries profess to desire.
Cleveland the Man for Xest Tear.
"Mr. Cleveland would not, perhaps, be
available for a third term, but his elec
tion next year would help bis successor.
The principle of continuity of leadership
is a fine thing, but when yon have a lead
er like Mr. Cleveland, who leads and wina ;
votes for his party, this very principle re-'
quires that you shall retain him in com
mand till the battle he has planned shall
have been fought and won."
