Affairs in Poland are in a desper ate st.te of unrest and uncertainty, says Josef Zinovteff in the Wash ington (I). C.) Star, and just how bad they arc or may become Inter nobody knows. In Warsaw any thing may happen. The recent attempt to dynamite IJaron Nolkcn, the Warsaw chief of police, struck terror to the hearts of the authori ties, who regard it only as n fust step in the direction of riots com pared wilhh which the sauginary outbreaks of last January were harmless demonstrations. Their fears are well grounded, for the leaders of the 1'olish social istic revolutionary party, who or ganized the recent strikes, have de cided on drastic methods. A special committee sitting in Warsaw has marked the names of officials who are to be assassinated. Dynamite bombs and pistols will be the chief wea pons to be used. In the last few months 120,000 revolvers of P'ng lish manufacture have been smug gled into Poland. There now have been strikes in all the large centers and towns of Russian Poland, and some of these strikes are still going on. In the country the peasants are everywhere agitating for improved conditions of life, and as they number nearly four-fi'ths of the whole pop ulation of Russian Poland, their movements are exciting the liveliest apprehension of the authorities. Disorder prevails throughtout Po land in every branch of trade and industry, and the business life of the country is almost at n standstill. This unfortunate state of affairs is due to various causes. Among them are bad harvests, low wages, long hours of labor, oppression from petty officials, the war in the far east, and last, but not least, the fears of further mobilization. But the bloody riots and conflicts be tween the military and the people which disgraced Warsaw at the end of last January were precipitated by the similar happenings at St. Peters burg. The Warsaw disturbances which marked the beginning of the troubles in Poland constitute a lasting and burning disgrace to the Russian authorities, civil and mili tary alike. They were begun by irresponsible schoolboys and contin ued by the "Hooligan" element of the city. The police could have nipped them in the bud had they wished to do so, but purposely de sisted and the consequence was a three days' insurrection such as Warsaw had not experienced since the revolution of 1863. A general strike hnd btokcu out in Warsaw, but the utmost quiet and order prevailed. The strikers maintained a perfectly correct atti tude, seeking only by peaceable persuasion to get the shopkeepers to close their business houses in sympathy with the strike. There was no breach of the peace until one morning a crowd of schoolboys started to break the street lamps in a thoroughly systematic fashion. 1 he police only looked on with amused indifference, and the boys had a beautiful time. Later, how ever, the "Hooligans" and crimi nals of the city, some 5,000 in num ber, began to emerge from their haunts and started to pillage and plunder shops and store and dwell ings, liven then the police refrain ed from interference until the af fair assumed alarming dimensions. Then the military were summon ed in hot haste, and infantry, artil lery and brutal Cossacks started in with fierce eagerness to clear the streets and put down the riot ing. They spared neither man, wo man nor child. The crowds, which included many quiet and inoffensive ciiixei s attracted there only by curi osity, were ruthlessly shot or sa bered by the cavalry. Many liuu- 1 dreds of men and women were ar- Rlss,A's rested. In two days order was res tored, when the authorities commit ted a crime which it will be long be fore the citizens of Warsaw forget or forgive. They let loose upen the city a regiment of hussats, picked men, belonging to a body guard of the Czar. Uncontrolled by officers or sub officers, these mounted ruffians swept through the streets of the city, shooting, slashing, cutting, riding down every body thev met. Nobody was safe fiom their vio lence. Innocent passcrsby and lit tle children who sought refuge in shops and doorways fell before their swords. Revolting talcs arc cur rent of their bloody deeds. A cre dible witness, who visited two hos pitals, declared that it was pitablc to see the number ol young child ren brought into the wards, muti lated by the sabers of these hussars. When at last these uniformed butch ers had been withdrawn the au thorities were able to take stock of the situation. The official list of dead contained 400 names. As for the wounded, their number could not be ascertain ed, and indeed will never be known. The wounded were cruelly beaten in the prisons by the infuriated po lice and soldiers. Dark tales are told of men and women being flog ged to death and their bodies bur ied within the precincts of the jails. A great general strike followed this reign of terror. Trade after trade and industry after industry was drawn into the movement. One day the shoemakers struck, and on the next the bank clerks, domestic servants and policemen, railway men and tramway drivers and con ductors, gas men and iron moldcrs, bookkeepers and street sweepers, all joindd the army of strikers. Some strikes lasted only a few min utes, others continued for weeks. Now nearly all are over, but they have been settled upon a false basis and peace cannot last long. The employers gave in all along the line and . granted the strikers higher wagos, shorter hours and almost every other concession they de manded. The railway employes got a nine-hour day and the bank clerks are to have a month's holiday every year. No demand seemed too unreasonable to be granted. Hut, with the business of the coun try almost ruined by the war, how is it possible for merchants and manufacturers to continue such ex traordinary concessions for any length of time? It is evident that they only yielded to obtain peace, but it is certain that new and more serious troubles are not far off. Al ready there are ominous signs ot new strikes. In some instances the employers have found that the new labor basis is impossible, while in other cases the dread of mobili zation is causing the workers to come out of the factories. Hut, although from the labor standpoint the cities and towns are quieter, the country districts arc seething with troubles. In every direction the peasants are striking. Higher wages, shorter hours, past ure and forest rights, ami the use of Polish language instead of the Russian in village affairs these are among the varied demands of the 7,000,000 peasants in Poland. Hitherto they have kept quiet, much to the relief of the authorities. But socialistic ngitators have been busy and their efforts have met with success. The peasant is slow to move, but once started it is diffi cult to hold him back. The Rus sian authorities realize this, and are much more concerned over the present agitation than over all the ordinary labor strikes which have yet taken place. Of all the peasants' demands, the most important relates to the lang uage question. The peasants have -mm,. discovered thru there Is nothing In the law Against the use of Polish in local government afTairs, and they bitlctly resent the action of the petty Russian officials in forcing their language upon them to the exclusion of the peasants' mother tongue. Only the other day a peasant was waiting his turn in a village post office, and hearing that the official at the window was un able to give a customer change, volunteered to lend him some small coins. The official whom he was trying to oblige promptly fined him three roubles ($1.50) for speaking Polish in a government office. The peasant felt none the less aggrieved when he remembered that the afore said fine would go into the pocket of the official. Such an incident is by no means uncommon and does not tend to promote pleasant rela tions between the peasants and the Russian local official world. Appropriations Tor School Mouses. Honolulu, May 8. On second reading of the loan appropriation bill, the Senate moved to raise the Ililo government building item from $42,000 to $50,000. Lost. North Kona got $8,000 for a court house and jail, and Maui and Kauai $25,000 each for public buildings. The item of $300,000 for extension of the Honolulu wharf system passed as in the bill. The item of educational buildings in Oahu caused a very long discus sion and was finally passed at $28, 000 and later increased to $30,000. Brown moved to insert an item of $20,000 for the Ililo high school. Carried. Kducational buildings on Hawaii were another source of trouble and after much wrangling passed at $22,000. The Maui educational buildings passed at $13,000 without a mur mur, but on motion to reconsider by Dickey was raised to $20,000. The Kauai buildings found a warm defender in Gandall, who succeeded after much opposition in getting the item raised from $9,000 to $28,350. Subscribe for the Truiunk. Sub scription $2.50 a year.
