One Who Baa CHvea It
Lieut John Byron Hamilton delivered
his lecture on "Tbe Land of the White
Czar," to a fair sized audience at Har
per's theatre last evening. While not as
large as it might have been, the audience
was composed of our best class of people
who thoroughly appreciated the lieuten
ant's entertaining lecture. The speaker
began by calling hishearers' attention to
e size of that vast country and said that
mparatively few people were acquainted
with Russia as it really is.
Most people only know that country
from cheap, trashy literature and maga
i-.ine articles which tbey have read about
it. "Our public libraries contain many
of these volumes," ssid the speaker, "and
I am sorry to say are tbe ones that are
tiostly read, while the standard works of
Wallace, Dickson and other well known
authors have the dust of years upon
tiem." He then g(.ve a glowing descrip
tion of the country and its boundaries.
a ad also described aride ontbeSt. Peters
burg & Moscow railway, which
ha said was probably not only
tie slightest, but also tbe most
expensive railway ever built. He then
described Novgorod and the famous
monument erected there in 1862 to com'
mamoratetheonethousande h anniversary
of Russia, after which he spoke britfly
of tbe church of St. Sophia and its his
toric surroundings. Leaving Novgorod,
tha speaker took his audience on a sight
ce ing tour through some ef the most in
teresting cities of tbe land of the White
Czar, drawing beau.iful pictures of the
manners, customs and surroundings of
thfse interesting people.
Tbe lecturer then spoke of the intro-
dut lion of the Greek church int Russia
and of its effect upon the people, and
gave an interesting description of the
workings of the secret police of that
couatry. saying that some of their work
was almost as remarkable as Bishop's
min J reading. He did not think the po
lice as a rule were any more cruel than
those of other countries, and added that
he bad neyer seen during his stay as fro
quent use of the club as he had witnessed
in some of our own American cities. Tbe
speaker described the Russian convict
systtim and tbe transporting of
prisoners in dirty and crowded cars
and of tbeir being classified into three
clastea, tbe first of which were the chief
political offenders who were condemned
to tt e dark mines to tou year alter year
in the darkness, never seeing a ray of
light but once a year, which is on the
czat's birthday. On Sunday they are
brought into a chapel hewn in the rock in
the dark mines where tbe worl of God
and i he gospel of love and charity is
preached to thtm. "This, said tbe
speaker, "is a stain upon Rasaian history
that it will take centuries to erase." Tbe
aecot d class are those who have
committed less grievous offenses, and
who are put to work on the forts which
are similar to our penitentiaries, and the
third class are those of minor offense?.
who arc sent with their families to Siberia
and 1 ve in communities, and who are
often pardoned, a singular fact about the
last named class being that tbey seldom
return to tbeir own country. In closing
tbe lieutenant spoke britfly of tbe present
famine in Russia and of tbe inability of
the government to guard against it on ac
count of the lack of railway facilities and
means of communication, and also that it
was n it an easy matter to interfere with
a machine that has been running for nun
dreds of years like that of the Russian
Laieiitcnant Hamilton nas an easy

in that country has fully equipped him
