Petersburg Cat Off From
Telegraph Operators Strike
Throughout the Empire.
A GENERAL TIE UP.
Is Being Discussed by the Work
The Situation of the Govern
ment Is Growing Desperate.
St. Petersburg:, Nov. 29. 12:10 p. m.
The situation has again suddenly grown
xceedingly grave. The Russian capital
Is shut off from telegraph communication
with the Interior. The Pan Russian
strike of telegraph operators declared
yesterday has gone into operation and
the workmen's council Is deliberating
whether to declare a general political
strike throughout Russia tomorrow,
predicating this action upon the alleged
unwarranted arrest of the members of
the peasants' congress at Moscow and
also calling on the people to compel the
employers at St. Petersburg who locked
out 70,000 men to open their doors.
The telegraph strike draws an impen
etrable curtain between the capital and
the provinces which in such a crisis ren
ders the position of the government al
most desperate as being In constant
touch with the military and local au
thorities in the interior is imperative. If
the telegraph strike can he maintained
the government would be compelled to
grope blindly in the dark. The employes
tif the office here have not yet struck
but they are expected to walk out today.
Only two lines are working out of St.
Telephonic messages from Moscow
which are momentarily expected to irtop,
ay that the operators on the Siberian
lines and on all the lines south, north
and east of Moscow have 6truck. Com
munication with Sebastopol and Odessa"
has ceased. The operators on the lines
throughout the Baltic provinces have
The telegraphers' strike Is the di
rect outgrowth of the government's cir
cular prohibiting telegraph operators
from Joining a union which prohibition
IS attributed to M. Dunovo, minister of
the Interior for whose removal from of
fice the radicals are vigorously work-ins-
The minister recently summarily dis
charged the leaders of the Moscow un
ion and yesterday their colleagues sent
a II hour ultimatum to M. Dunovo and
Premier Wltte, demanding the rein
statement of the dismissed men and uie
withdrawal of the obnoxious circular.
No answer being forthcoming at thf
specified time the strike was declared.
The telegraphers of Moscow after leav
ing their keys held a meeting in an ad
Joining building and upon the appear
ance of the police and troops sent to
break up the meeting they declared
firmly that they would not disperse
even if the authorities used force.
Sebastopol being cut off from tele
graph communication with the capital
it Is not known here whether the muti
neers have surrendered or whether (Jen.
Nepteuff, the commander of the fortress
began active operations against them
today. The last dispatch which came
through announced that Sebastopol was
practically deserted except for the
troops. The scared population have
fled In all directions and Balaklava and
neighboring towns were filled with ref
ugees. The streets of Sebastopol were
reported as being flooded with Incoming
troops and artillery and machine guns
have been placed so as to command Ad
miralty Point, the stronghold of the
mutineers while the guns of Fort Con
tartlne had been trained on the sail
ors' barracks. General Neptueff and
the other military officers accordintr to
advices were consulting with a view to
working out a plan to take the mutni
eers by siege, without bloodshed if pos
sible. No further statement was made re
garding the attitude of the Black sea
A dispatch to the Novoe Vremya says
not more than a thousand sailors are
now supporting the leaders of the
mutiny who number a hundred. The dis
patch also says that there are only 400
rifles in the sailors' barrack and that
illy a few cartridges are available. The
Slavo whioh is supporting County Wltte
has been exceedingly pessimistic. It
ays revolution constitutes a double
danger as "every success of the revolu
tionists enable the reactionists to point
out the danger of continuing the reform
program, while every turn of the wheel
backwards stimulates the revolutionists
to make new attacks on the govern
ment." The editor of the new pictorial satiri
cal paper Poulemet who was arrested
November 27 has been released. Writing
his experiences he says he was arrested
at 2 o'clock in the morning, that his
apartments were rifled and that he was
held for two days in prison in violation
of the inviolability of person guaranteed
by the imperial manifesto. The public
prosecutor, however, found that the edi
tor had not committed any crime and
M. Dnrnovo was compelled to order his
liberation, "yet this is called the new
regime." says the editor. In conclusion.
Line to Berlin Interrupted.
Benin, rov. 29. 5:25 p. m. The
imperial postoffice announces that all
telegraph communication with Russia
n.is Deen interrupted since noon.
CLOSE TO THE SHORE.
Kansas Is Nearly Out of
As a result of fhe showing made by
the state treasury examination for the
month of November, made Tuesday af
ternoon by Uovernor Hoch, Auditor
"Wells and Secretary of State Burrow, it
in evident thai the only thing which can
save the state from stamping warrants
not paid for want of funds" in the
months-of December and January is a
dividend nom tne first .National ban!:
A dividend of even 50 per cent would
probably pull the state out of the hole.
At present the examination shows that
there is less than $40,000 in the treasury
with which to meet the November bills.
The state officers, however, lave seen
to it that they are provided for. Their
salaries for the month of November
have already been paid. Consequently
the bills remaining are for salaries of
employes in state Institutions, and other
miscellaneous bills. The $40,000 still in
the treasury will be used for satisfying
these demands as far ss possible. The
ones which come In late will slmplyhave
to wait until the state gets more money.
It is thought that some of the Institu
tions may he late in sending in their pay
rolls this month, m which case It would
give the state a little more time. By
allowing everything to take its full time.
the state officers hope to be able to avoid
the not paid -stamp. Ttrey are banking
entirely upon the First National divi
dend. The treasury examination Tuesday af
ternoon showed that there is 1494,525.83
on hand in the general revenue fund, (ft
this amount about J420.000 is tied up In
the First National. This leaves $74,525
as the true balance. From this must be
subtracted $38,291 which the treasury
examiners found in the treasury in the
form of uncancelled warrants. This
leaves about 136,234 on hand.
The report on the amount of money
In state depository banks shows that
the Bank of Topeka is carrying the
largest balance. It has $68,000.
There are eighteen authorized deposi
tories which have no money at all.
Thinks Athletic Relations With Yale
Is a Detriment.
Cambridge. Mass.. Nov. 29. The Har
vard graduates magazine for Decem
ber will contain an article by an un
named graduate of the university set
ting forth that Harvard should abandon
athletic relations with Yale on the
ground that such relations are used by
Tale simply as a basis to claim patity
with Harvard as an institution of learn
ing. Harvard, the writer says, further
more can not win without adopting
Yale methods and this she can not do
without violence to her ideals.
Speaking of an alleged tendency on
the part of the Yale authorities to main
tain silence concerning the "internal
weaknesses" of the university, in con
trast to Harvard's policy of publicity
and self-correction, the writer con
tinues: "The only publicity which Yale has
consistently encouraged is publicity in
athletics. And no wonder. Thanks to
the linking of Yale's name with Har
vard's in the sports of the past thirty
years, the public in Its haphazard fash
Ion has gone on supposing that Harvard
and Yale were about on a level as In
stitutions of education. The truth has
been, of course, that while Harvard has
steadily held the irimacy of Ameri
can universities since 1870, Yale has
dropped to sixth or eieht place In point
of attendance and has been outstripped
by four if not five universities in its
offering of high-grade instruction and in
its professional schools."
The writer declares that Yale, under
the sway of what he terms the "athleto
cracy," has persistently resisted every
attempt to curb or regulate or purify
The article goes on to declare that
Yale presidents and professors by their
own admission find the rule of the "ath
letocracy" Irksome. but fear to lose
their popularity by opposing it. The
policy of Walter Camp, which Yni has
adopted for her own, is, the writer says,
responsible for Yale's athletic condition.
"Not that Harvard players have al
ways been above reproach," he adds.
"The temptation to imitate the prac
tices which have brought victory to
their opponents has proved too strong.
"Yale for a quarter of a century has
organized a wonderful athletic Institu
tion whose main business has been to
turn out winning teams and whose rul
ing spirit is 'anything to win.' Let us
part company, for competition between
two competitors so antagonistic in
principles is incompatible."
3 CENT FARE WINS.
Johnson Scores Final Victory
Over Railway Company.
Columbus, O., Nov. 29. By a decision
of the supreme court today Mayor Tom
L. Johnson of Cleveland, wins a victory
in his fight for three cent fares. On one
ground or another all the other fran
chises granted by the Cleveland city

tion inspired by the opposition com
panies. The court today reversed the
judgment of the circuit court of Cuya

or Imitation Fur.
Charming loathful Effects Ob
tained With Velvet Ribbon.
TOQUES AND TURBANS
Are the Fayorite Models for the
Mat ot Fur.
Loveliest of All the Winter's
Fancies in Millinery.
By KATHEIUXE ANDERSON.
HANKSGIVING DAY usually
usners in tne nrst good
snowstorm and the girl who is
churchward bent takes this op
portunity to appear in the
most becoming headirear of the
year the fur hat. The soft pelt min
gling in its cozy warmth with the
lightest of summer flowers and furbe
lows sets off a fair face as no other bit
of millinery can. and when snow is
here, surely It is time for fur!
Foremost among the new creations
in fur headgear is the large hat built
entirely of some silky skin. Not only
is the genuine pelt used for this pur
pose, hut in very modish effects, Imita
tion fur cloth is employed with bands
and tails of real fur.
An extremely smart instance of the
latter style is a wide-brimmed hat with
large flat crown covered with the silk
iest gray beaver cloth. Graduated
folds of white chiffon line the Hating
peaked brim and a band of white fox
completes the upper edge. Raised
high on a bandeau at the back, the hat
is pitched well over the face, while a
long white ostrich plume rising from
the back of the crown, falls coquettish)-
on the coiffure. This particular
style of hat is suited to evening as well
as day-time wear, but demands par
ticularly striking features in the wo
man whom it becomes.
More simple and youthful is a som
brero shape built entirelv of chinchilla.
Porcelain blue velvet ribbon is bunched
in loops around a full-blown white
rose. The latter adorns the under side
of the left brim and emphasizes the
inimitable dark and light markings of
this elegant pelt. White velvet rib
bon surrounds the crown and forms a
large bow precisely. at the center of
One other popular style of large
hat, the mushroom shape, is employed
extensively as a fur model. Very
choice among the offerings of an exclu
sive fur house Is a hat of chinchilla in
the Inverted saucer shape with loose
sack coat to match. A bed of velvet
geranium flowers not the rounding
cluster of blossoms, but the individual
flowers fills in the top of the crown,
and another bunch masses itself
charmingly at the side of the bandeau.
An Alsatian bow of rose velvet ribbon
with steel buckle spreads across the
back and harmonizes with the steel
trimmed rose velvet rosettes on the
coat. Tn place of the geraniums, short
feathers or feather rosettes are em
ployed to cover the top of the mush
room fur hats and to fill In the deep
curve of the brim.
With brim abruptly tilted, a large
hat in pale green felt virtually gives
the effect of a small toque. A wide
band of richly dyed sable forms the
very high crown, the height being ac
centuated by ribbon that rises at the
top. Plastered at the side of the sharp
ly upturned brim on the left, bronze
green ostrich tips cover the entire
space, while a shorter brim on the op
posite side is tacked up by a head of
In the realm of the season's smart
toques, however. Is where fur appears
largely. Remarkably unique is a tur
ban with high cone-shaped crown and
circular upstanding brim. And still
more unique is the fact that it Is built
of young Alderney skin. Eight brown
velvet pipes the brim, which is con
cealed beneath folds of liberty satin in
white that terminate in a long, stiff,
clerical bow at the front. Prince of
Wales ostrich tips of dowy whiteness
trim the left side.
A fetching little model with mink
trimmings suggests a lovely hat for the
girl who has a short straight neckpiece
of squirrel or chinchilla left from last
year. A three-inch stole Is laid on a
boat-shaped turban frame, to form al
most a point in front. Curving around
to the back, one end passes through a
slit in the other, both ends being wired
to stand out perkily like a smart bow.
Their meeting point is concealed be
neath a large, square buckle. A white
ostrich feather rosette fills In the space
at the center of the fur stole, as well
as the space under the bow at the
back. But with equally charming ef
fect white tulle could be made to serve
the same purpose.
A fashion which promises to be very
popular with the well-dressed girl the
remainder of the season is to have
collars and cuffs of the outer jacket
or heavy coat, or fur, and a large polo
turban of the same pelt. Built entirely
of the fur, very little trimming adorns
the hat, u single brilliant buckle or
button serving, perhaps, to clasp letted
or spangled quills directly in front, or
in cavalier style at the side. Large
beadwork buttons will also be used in
For more dressy wear, spreading os
prey, bird of paradise, or other of the
feathered tribe in white, will perch
jauntily on these all-fur turbans. On
a Frenchy creation of moleskin, loops
ot Diuc tinsel riDDon filled in a hollow
space at the back. A silver buckle
pinned the end of a blue quill just
where the brim of the hat turned up
and in to give a pointed tricorn ef
fect. Dressy black hats In broadtail
show many variations of the tricorn
shape and are set off by stunning gilt
buckle and gilt braids.
More elaborate still are the hats of
tinsel cloth and lace forming a back
ground for tails, bands and heads of
fur, and rendered extremely dainty by
gatherings of Valenciennes lace. The
example In question shows a simple
circular shape, covered with silver
cloth, tne crown being concealed un
der Princess lace. A wide band of
sable bordered with ecru lace encircles
the sides of the crown, and two sable
tails fall over the hair at the back
Silver tinsel roses nestling in velvet
leaves trim the front of the crown.
Not soon to be forgotten by the wo
man who loves real lace Is a fragile
chapeau in the wardrobe of a young
debutante. A wide benf brim is built
of genuine rose point lace with a slen
der. slanting bow of the same lace
gracing the front slightly to the left
side. Genuine ermine forms a round
flat crown, while tiny ermine tails in
tertwine with the lace bow. Resting at
the center of the bow is a tinsel orchid
and another nestles at the back
amidst graduated layers of pleated
white tulle, A white aigrette juts out
saucily at the left side.
Combining tulle with fur gives ex
quisitely dainty effects. Tulle ruches
Of all sorts appear with fur hats and
pelerines. In fact, the. ruches them
selves look very much like capes.
Noteworthy is one with full gathering
of tulle about the neck and two capes
of different widths in shaded accord-
lon-pleated tulle, the lower cape reach
ing to the shoulder iines. Printed
crepe de chine scarfs also combine
charmingly with fur neckpieces and
form draped bows at the back of fur

Paris, Nov. 29. The Korean min
ister, Min Yung Tehan, Will sail for
New York today on the Kaiser
Wilhelm It. for the purpose of pre
senting a protest at Washington,
against Japan assuming authorlty
over Korea. The minister says the
protest emanates from the emperor of
Korea, who cabled Instructions to pre

United States. The American govern
ment has already been advised of
Minister Mm s coming visit. No de
tails of the protest are obtainable. The

test from Minister Min but has not
taken any action. The minister's ad
vices say that Japan's assumption of
power was accompanied by a display
of armed force and that the emperor
was treated violently.

quarters indicate that there Is no in
tention to act upon the Korean protest.

Chicago, 111.. Nov. 29. WHEAT Active
buying by shorts and commission houses
caused decided strength today in the
wheat market here. The urgent demand
was the result of bullish foreign news.
The principal factor was the report of
rain in Argentina, where harvesting has
Just commenced. The unsettled condition
in Russia, however, had considerable in
fluence. Small receipts in the northwest
furnished additional incentives to buy
wheat. May opened c to c high

the SSc mark. Minneapolis. Ihiluth and
Chtcago reported receipts of 593 cars,
against 567 cars a year ago.
The close was strong with May un
c. at 88c.
CORN Strong cables and the advance
in wheat created bullish sentiment in the
corn pit. Shorts and commission houses
were active bidder, but offerings were
light. May opened unchanged to c high

The market closed firm, with May up

OATS Oats were firm in sympathy with
other grains. The volume of trading,
however, was small. May opened un
changed to a shade higher, at 31c to 31

PROVISIONS Renewed buying of pork
by shorts caused strength in provisions.
An advance of 10c in the price of live

New York Stocks.
Wall St.. New York, Nov. 29. STOCKS
Opening prices in the stock market
showed many changes from last night.
The wide fluctuations, however, were con
fined to the department of specialties.
Amongst these Virginia-Carolina Chemi
cal rose 1 points, Colorado and South
ern 1 points, Reading 1 points. Amer
ican Woolen lost 1 points, Sloss-Shef-field
Steel and Tennesse Coal and Smelt
ing a point and Metropolitan Street Rail
way and Denver and Rio Grande prefer
red large fractions. There were subse
quent reactions which reduced the large
gains and also modified some of the
Emphasis to the heavy realizing of the
last few days in special stocks by the pre
cipitate fall In prices which occurred dur
ing the first half hour's business. Con
trary to recent operations the entire mar
ket succumbed under this setting. Pull
man and Tennessee Coal yielded 5 points,
Sloss-Sheff ield Steel 4 points and De
troit Southern preferred certificates 3
points. Lead, which had opened strong
ly at 69. fell to 68, and all other previous
ly higher stocks surrendered their ad
vances and Something more. Signs of
support became definite enough to Insure
heavy buying to cover and the market
rose smartly with a number of stocks
mounting to well over yesterday's closing.
Lead rebounded to 7P.4, a gain ot 3
points. Tennessee Coal went up 3 points
from the lowest and Sloss-Sheffield Steel
2 points. In a general way the market
fought back a portion of its losses, but
continued to manifest traces of feverlsh-ness-.
Prices wavered from time to time, the
general movement proving narrow and
dealings less active than recently. The
specialties Joining the upward movement
included Cotton Oil 2 points, Virginia and
Carolina Chemical 1 points. Colorado
and Southern first preferred 1 points
and Rock Island preferred, Brooklyn Dap
id Transit, United States Pipe. Railway
Spring and Distillers' Securities a point.
The general reaction checked this move
ment and carried some stocks lower than
before. Anaconda dropped 4 points. Read
ing's advance to 1 points over yesterday
checked the reaction, but brought trad
ing nearly to a standstill.
Bonds were irregular at noon.
The general list might have been elim
inated from the category of stocks traded
In for all the interest that was manifest
ed outside of Lead and Reading. Both
of these stocks went up in an irresistible
manner, despite the large offerings that
the rise Invited. Reading reached 137
a sain of 2 points, and Lead overshad
owed yesterday's record price, touching
74, a rise of 6 points. New York, Chi
cago and St. Louis preferred Improved 1
points, while Great Northern preferred
lost 1 point. Wisconsin Central l'.i points
and Lead preferred 2 points.
Strength revived In the industrials with
the recovery in Lead. Smelting and
Amalgamated Copper rose 2 points over
last night. Republic Steel and Tennessee
Coal 1 points and Sloss-Sheffield Steel a
point. Central Leather gained 154 points
and Canadian Pacific 1 point. The gen
eral list was rather indifferent to the
movements and was unsettled when the
metal stocks reacted. Lead. Smelting and
Tennessee Coal dropped hack over 2
points. The Metropolitans yielded easily.
Northern Pacific lost 1 and Great North
ern preferred 2 points.
