famous Pony Express rider?from
Santa Ft, N. M., to Independence,
Mo., in 1853?800 miles in five days
thirteen hours.
In 1852 he had covered the same
: distance in a little o**er eight days,
! and his record was on (he wager of
$1,000 that he "could do it in an even
j eight." In the whole distance he did
? not stop to rest, end changed horses
only with every 100 or 200 miles, lie
was a stocky French Canadian, light
hearted, genial, adventurous, abso?
lutely fearless.
For some time he was an overland
freighter; and he also made the enor?
mously difficult and dangerous drive
of a flock of sheep from New Mexico
to California across the deserts of
the Colorado. He was killed in Santa

London (By Cable).?A St. Peters?

way of Eydtkuhncr?, Sunday, says :
"The revolutionists, it is declared, will
shortly proclaim themselves the acting
goirernment They will divide Russia
roughly into a thousand electoral dis?
tricts. Meanwhile the government fears
to act with vigor, only arresting a few
strike leaders and liberating them the
next day.
"The strike committee continues its
terrorism. Tt render*- the life of "black?

them on the streets. Cossacks who in?
tervened Sunday were put to flight by
a shower of bomb cases containing mes?
sages stating that loaded bombs would

'The state of the army grows worse
daily. Sixteen thousand mer? of the gar?

leading columns of the Manchurian army
which have just arrived at Moscow, are
mutinous and have been disarmed.
"The whole Fourteenth Naval Battal?

More Trouble For Witte.
Petersburg. (By Cable).?Another
crisis is at hand involving thc indefinite
prolongation of the strike, thc probable
immediate precipitation e>i a general
strike throughout Russia and a possible
final struggle between the government
and the proleariat.
This sudden change for the worse is
thc result of the shedekhvg of thc first
blood in the telegraph strike Saturday
afternoon almost simultaneously with the
action of M. Durnovo, minister of the in?

the labor organizations by arresting If.

About 2 o'clock several companies of

leading to the headquarters 01 the coun?
cil, in Targovin Street. Having barred
the approaches, a force of troop*, and po?
lice surrounded the building, after which
secret men rushed in and seized Krus
talef?. The latter made nib resistance and
the affair was conducted quickly. It
was impossible fot KruSta?eff to conceal
the papers of thc organization, in which
the police evidently expect to find evi?
dence proving the ultimate object to be
an armed uprising against the govern?
ment.
A disturbance in which two strike?
breakers were killed and a policeman
and several others wounded occurred at
the same hour immediately in front of
the general postOffice. The strikers for
two days have been seeking to per?
suade the volunteer and regular car?
riers to refuse to work. At the door of
the building the strikers, enraged by the
refusal of the volunteers to quit, drew
knives, whereupon a carrier attempted
? ."end himself with a revolver. Both
carrier and a companion were killed on
the spot.
