Petersburg, May 11. — According to private advice? from Zhitomir, sixteen persons were killed nnd over a hundred wounded, mostly Jews, in the anti-Jewish riot*. Martial law was prorialmed at Zhitomir to-day. The city is filled v.iih troops, and order generally ie restored. though individual < ns<-s of violence are still oc curring, and a renewal of rioting is feared on Saturday c-vening and Sunday. Stores, which have been barricaded in fear of tumults, are gradually reopen!ng. ; ;itp advices bri!:e news of a ( - .itic outbreak in Gostynln, In •' Warsaw, in which many Jews ad houses were pillaged. No ; :re reported, but Jewish fear further developments, not only In Zhitomir and Gostynln, but also in other lo j ■ iish frontier, where th« Dent is numerous and the anti • Btronsj. The official account of the Zhitomir riots as eigns their beginnings to an encounter between c party of Jews in a boat and some roughs on the bank of the river. The latter stoned the Jew?, who defended themselves with revolvers, bounding several of the attacking party, but not seriously. Reports of the counter quickly ppreadinp aroused the Christian populace to frenzy. The Jews also banded together for pro tection, and, though a general encounter was prevented by the troops, several minor riots oc curred, in one of which a Jewish boy was killed £!id several persons were wounded. The disorder culminated on May 7 in a pitched tattle between Jews and Christiana in the public square in the centre of the city. Simultaneously there were collisions in several of the suburbs. Th<* principal bloodshed occurred on this day, end the rioting assumed apparently an organized character. Finally the military, of which there ■vere three regiments stationed in the town, in tervened and dispersed the crowds. Many ar rests were made, including forty Christians. May 8 saw no renewal of fighting on a grand •cale. but instead the rabble, dividing into small parties, plundered stores and houses where they could evade the military and committed several murders. Tuesday and Wednesday the situa tion was comparatively quiet, though plunder ing and outrages occurred. The regular garrison of three infantry regiments has been augmented By a battery of artillery and a detachment of dragoons. A dispatch from Ki°ff Fays that reports of a Jevish massacre at Zhitomir caused great ex citement through the country districts. Many farmers from surrounding villages went to Zhitomir on May 9. attracted by reports of Jew baiting and minor disorders, and pillaging oc curred in the village of Troyanoff. fifteen miles distant. The beginning of the disorder is at tributed to the murder of Chief of Police Kuga reff. According tO this dispatch, eighteen per tor.s ere killed, of whom thirteen were J«%.s Zhitomir is on the Tet^ref River, eighty miles COBtbweat of Kieff.

A robbery at the Hotel Patterson, No. 58 West 47th-st., In the rooms of David C. Town send, a diamond dealer, was announced last night, when it was eaid oil paintings, bric-a brac, plate and Jewelry valued at thousands of dollars had been stolen. Two employes of the hotel were arrested and taken to the police sta tion in East r>lst-st. The prisoners are John Crawley, a watchman, and George Lewis, an elevator man. Their arrest was on informa tion given by Delia Monahan. an old servant of the Townaenda. who had been in charge of the apartments. Mr. and Mrs. Townsend Bailed for Europe two weeks ago and are supposed to t>e in Florence. Italy, now. On Saturday afternoon the servant left the apartments to visit friends, having hidden a cabinet containing gems and Jewelry of the value of $10,000 in one of the dark rear rooms. Returning at 10 p. m.. she looked up to the win dows of the apartments and there saw a light. She hurried into the house and told Crawley. He told her. she says, that ho had to do an er rand across the street, and that as soon as he had attended to that he would go with her. She. says he made a good deal of noise and talked in a loud tone, and when they entered the apartments the light had been extinguished. Two fine oil paintings had been cut from the gold frames, and most of the heavy silver plate and many articles of Jewelry and bric-a-brac were missing. The hidden cabinet had not been discovered by the thieves. Neither of the men arrested would make any statement when they were confronted at the station by Miss Monahan and examined by Captain Lantry last night. The detectives say they found no pawn tickets in the possession of the men. CASSINI GOES TO MADRID. Baron Rosen To Be Russian "Am bassador at Washington. Washington. May 10.— Count Cassini, the Rus sian Ambassador to this country, has been trans ferred to Madrid. Baron Rosen, until recently Russian Minister to Japan, will succeed him here. That the news of his transfer to Madrid should have become known here before it was offi cially announced at St. Petersburg, has caused some annoyance to the Ambassador, but as he had confided the fact to one of his diplomatic fri'-nds, the word was passed along, and it seemed best to make an official announcement. The ambassador will await Baron Rosens ar rival here, some time in June, before, sailing for Europe. Service of two years and a half without leave haa told on the health of the Ambassador, and, afU'r a visit to St. Petersburg, where he will see the Emperor, Count Cassini will go to Contrexevllle, in the Vosges, to take the cure. Hie presentation at Madrid will occur some time in the fall. The Russan Ambassador at Mad rid, whom Count Cassini succeeds, has been ap pointed one of the Ministers in the Council of the Empire. When the post at Madrid was offered to Count Cassini, several months ago, he took it under consideration, for, although a European em baaay ha* been the desire of the ambassador, he did not think it proper to leave Washington when peace negotiations were possible. The cruise of Admiral Rojestvensky*s fleet to the Par East, he thinks, will prolong the war in definitely, and he decided that be would assume hie now mission some time in the fall. "Seven years In a country as the personal representative of one's sovereign." said th.- Am bassador to-day, "mrtkes one roore than a friend of that country — one comes to feel almost a part of the country. Reg-ret is not a strong enough word to characterize one's feeling at leaving. I leave ln Washington and elsewhere throughout your great country many warm and deAr frioniis.

Passengers on Hackensack Not Alarmed and Flames Soon Put Out. A slicrht fire in tho pilothouse of the ferry boat H.-n-kensnck. plying between 90th-st. and 138th-st. and College Point, at 6 o'clock last evening, gave rise to alarming rumors of dis aster. It was extinguished, however, almost without the knowledge of the fifty passengers. The fire is believed to have been caused by sp.-trks from the flreboat Zophar Mills. The ferryboat, which is In command of Cap tain Helgerton, was in the 'Ji»th-st. slip when an alarm was turned In. In preparing to re spond the farced draught was turned on by the engineer of the fireboat, and showers of sparks poured from her funnel. They were blown agalnsi the ferryboat and smouldered until the boat got into the river, when they burst into flame, igniting the dry woodwork of the pilothouse. When the Hackensnck started for College Point the flames were burn ing brightly. Captain Helgerton saw the danger, and, blowing the fire drill signal, soon had the men at the point of danger. The burning wood was torn out and tbe boat went on its way without stripping the engines. As the boat was between the Sunkor. Meadows ami Casino Beach, the fire was observed from North Brother Island, and there were many who expected a repetition en a smaller scale of the Slocum disaster. ENDS PALISADES BLASTS. Riverside Drive Gets Novel Injunc tion — Rocks a Sounding Board. Justice Vernon M. Davis, of the Supreme Court, rendered a decision yesterday that is important from a legal standpoint and pleasing to all the residents of Riverside Drive and the neighborhood facing what is known as Block House Point, on the New- Jersey shore, where the Clinton Point Stone Company has been blasting the ruck from the Palisades. The de cision, which is the first of its kind ever ren dered, will have the effect of abating this nuisance. The actual plaintiff in the case was Max Vo«el, of 7(lth-st. and Riverside Drive, although the sjits brought for the abatement of the nuisance have been backed by the West Side As sociation, of which Cyrus Clark is president and John C. Coleman, James A- Deering and others are members. The case has been argued by and the injunction obtained through the efforts of Clarence De Witt Rogers. It appears that the Palisades at the point where the rock is l.°ing blasted form a sort of natural sounding board, and the blasts, which are Bet off at noon and at 6 o'clock every da-y, crack the walls and break the ceilings of houses in New- York. The blasting became such a nui sance and a menace 10 life that action had to b» taken to stoD it. The defendants sold that because the blasting was being done In New-Jersey persons living In New-York had no right to interfere, but it ap pear* that the defendants are a New-York cor poration, having an office in this city. The court establishes a pretedent in this case thai, Mr. Rogers says, is fin extremely valuable one, for he says that unless the rieff-rriants can show that they are not committing a nuisance, the de cision of the court will enable the property hold ers to abate the smoke fumes and other nul sances that come under the same jurisdiction. The suit. Mr. Rogers sai'i yesterday, ha« brought out the fact that th.' Woodcliff Land Improvement Company la the owner of the prop erty where the blasting is being done, and that it let the privilege to th^ Clinton Point Stone ■ my. ARRESTS S ELEPHANTS.

IN GALE IN OPEN BOAT. Rescued in Great South Bay Nearly Exhausted by Struggle. Four men were at the mercy of tha waves for thirty-six hours In an open boat in Great South Bay while women walked the shores praying for their rescue and brave men fought against odda to find thsm. They were discovered yes terday afternoon by a party of three in a power launch and rescued. The rescuing party itself went through great danger and suffered severely. The men were nearly exhausted, having had no food or fresh water since early Tuesday morning. They had been compelled to work desperately to prevent the sloop from racking itself to splinters. Eugene R. Smith, a civil engineer, of Islip. was employed by the South Shore Realty Com pany, of which Josiah Robbins, of Bay Shore, is head, to survey some property on Fir" Island. Smith took his assistant, John Bweeaey, and two other men on the sloop Fannie S. Half way across the bay the wind freshened and the little sloop under full sail scudded helplessly be fore it. The company made superhuman efforts to avoid being blown on the shoals, but their work was in vain. Scarcely had they started to bring the boat around when the boom trlpDed in the water the little vessel's nose drove into the bay. and instantly 'he craft was half filled. Only by easing her off and setting her before the wind again were they able to prevent immediate cap- Fizins. A little later the wind tore the sails to Pl Wh«i the Fannie S. reached the surf she was thrown and pounded about, while her crew, see ma no hope of getting her to open water a«aln. tried to drive ncr toward the shore. But. while the waves occasionally propelled the boat a short distance toward the shore, the men could not force her nearer than half a mile from the nearest bit of beach. When day dawned the men could see land half a mile away, but there was no hope of reaching it. Two of the men only could sw^m, but all agreed that swimming would avai! one only a moment or two in such a sea. A pair of long sweeps were unlashed and taken from the cock pit, and the men. two to each sweep, tried their best for many hours to keep their boat from being completely rolled over by the waves. An attempt to hoist a flag of distress nearly capsized them. Meantime Mr. Robbins had telephoned at noon to Fire Island to give some instructions to the surveyors, whom, he supposed, were at work, and had learned that they had not arrived. He waited until mid-afternoon, and then hastily called for volunteers and went to the shore. It was 8 o'clock in the evening befoi-e the rescu ing party could set on* from the shore. It that time until midnight they sailed the watera of the Great South Bay, each man of the crew with a life preserver about his waist, for their danger was almost as great as that of tha men they sought. No trace was found, and the search had finally to be abandoned after tho moon had set. Early yesterday morning Mr. Robbins set out again In his power launch. After a long search they found the shipwrecked men. BUYS BIG TOURING CAR. J. D. Rocke feller Overcomes sion and Will Drive ''Auto." John D.

PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT'S BUSY DAY IN CHICAGO. Chicnsro, May 10.— President Roosevelt's day in Chicago was a btwy and an eventful one. Arriv ing about noon, he adlressed the Merchants' Club on the importance of a big navy and re ceived the members of the Hamilton and How ard clubs and spoke to them briefly. After a short rest he received a delegation representing' the strikers, nnd to-night he was the guest of honor at a dinner given by the Iroquois Club, one of the leading Democratic organizations of the West. In his address he rf iterated his views on the railroad rate question, promised hearty support to Mayor Dunne in his efforts to pre serve law and order, and declared that no gov ernment by either plutocrai y or mob should, ever exist in this country. H» started for Washington shortly after midnight. A committee appointed to call on the Presi dent and lodge with him a protest against the employment of federal troops in tha team sters' strike received an audience late this afternoon. The committee consisted of Cor nelius P. Shea, president of the International Brotherhood of T>n.msters; <'harles Dold, presi dent of the Chicago Federation of Labor: Joseph O'Nell, vice-president of the I'hlcago Federation of Lcbor; T. P. Quinn, a member of the Can vassers' Union, and T. Rlckert, president of the Garment Workers' International Union. The members of the committee. President Roosevelt and Secretary Lopb were the omy persons at the conference. The following account of what passed in the room was given out by Secretary Loeb: After presenting the protest to the President, Mr. Shea, acting as spokesman, said: We are here as a committee to present you a statement, stating our position in this controversy between the Employers' Association anil the Team sters' Association. We have understood that they hail asked your aid for bringing troops to Chicago. We want to present our position to you. Mr. Quinn said: It will take about ten minutes. Perhaps we had better leave it with yoa • The President said that he would read it at once, and after doing so said: I have read the petition you have presented to me, the conclusion of which Is a request for a hearing before any action be taken by the fed eral President relating to the Chicago striko situation. As yet no suggestion of any kind has come to me from any source that I should take any action. Of the m.irits of the case I am wholly ignorant. I have no knowledge of what the situation is or of what steps should properly be taken to end It I feel, however, that In view of one statement, or series of statements, in your letter I ought to say this: I regret that you should in the letter have spoken at all of the use of the federal army as you have there spoken. No request has been made to me for action by th*> federal government, but at the same time. Mr. Shea, as you have in this communication to me brought up that fact, I want to say on* thing with all the emphasis in my power. In uphold ing law and order, in doirg what he. Is able to do to suppress mob violence in any shape or way, the Mayor of Chicago, Mayor Dunne, has my hearty support. I am glad to be able to say this to you, gentlemen, before I said It to another body. Now let me repeat that I know nothing of the facts of the situation. I know nothing of the right or wrong of the points at issue. What I have to say Is based partly upon what I re gard as the unfortunate phrasing of a letter presented to the President of the United States. I have not been called upon to interfere In any way, but you must not misunderstand my atti tude. In every effort of Mayor Dunne to prevent violence by mobs or Individuals, to see that the laws are obeyed, and that order is preserved. he has the hearty support of the President of the United States, and. in my Judgment, he should have that of every good citizen of the United States. Now gentlemen. It has been a great pleasure to se9 you. and I am glad to have had tho chance to say this to you. Mr. Quinn. who knew the President in his youth, said: Mr. President, what prompted us to come to you with this statement is that, for the ImMwo or three weeks, there has been a continual howl for the federal army. I have known you long enough to know that you would not respond to a up*- s ><l»'\ demand; that you will not respond until you hava thoroughly investigated the c.se. The President replied: "Mr Quinn as yet the Mayor of Chicago, has not made any appeal to the Governor, and therefor-, of course, tho Governor has made. none to me; and, as yet nothing in the situa tion has demanded action by me." President Shea of the Teamsters' Union then .said: Let me explain that. The Governor has been re quested by a committee of the employers to rte mand federal troops; the statement has been made In the papers. 1 Immediately telegraphed Governor Deneen that we would allow him to appoint a com mission Regardless of that. I want to mall our position known to you in regard to mob violence. Every time a mob congregates, every act of va lence performed by either a union man or a sym pathizer reacts to our detriment. I £ "«Y*'*° a ; we are skilled workmen enough In our particular craft to demonstrate to our business men or L3U cago that it is to their interest to ems us There Is nothing at stake but the re-employment of citizens of Chicago who have been forced 'out o£ their position* Acts of violence meet wtt condemnation of the officials both local and national, of our organization. \ tolence does not meet with the sympathies of our organisation. I slmplv want to 9*) that we want* to be ta ir .to preserve the business Interests of Chicago, realizing thai the prosperity of our employers Is our prosperity. The President replied: Mr Shea, I can only repeat what 1 have said. I am a believer in unions. I am an honorary member of one union. But the union must obey ; the law. just as tre corporation must obey the law. just as every man. rich or poor, must obey | the law. As yet. no action has been called for , by me. and most certainly if action Is called for I shall try to do justice under the law to ; •very man. so far aa I have power. But the first essential is the preservation of law and or der, the suppression of violence by mobs or In dividuals. This closed the interview, and the committee withdrew. THE STRIKERS' PROTEST. The memorial presented In behalf of the B trlk crß follows: To the Hon. Theodore Roosevelt. President of the United States of America. Honorable Sir: This labor difficulty began as a lockout So far as there has been any strik ing done. It has been a strike for arbitration. The unions involved are committed, both upon principle and by specific contract with the em ployers, for arbitration. .'''."■., . .v. 1 These contracts grew out of the desire of the unions to protect the public peace and welfare. by providing to submit all disputes or differ ences of opinion to the umplrage of an Impartial third party, and accepting that decision-right or wrong— binding upon both parties. Such a course Is a guarantee at the preservation of law acd order. -All that the unions ask for or desire Continued on third pa;e- ■■-,_, _ PRICE THREE CENTS. ■Chlcascs May 10.-p^sldent Roosevelt was th» chief guest to-night at a dinner given in hi* honor by tho Irminols club, th- leading Demo cratic organization of Illinois. Surrounded by men who have fought against him in two na tional political campaigns, who oppose many of his policies, and who have sharply criticised some of his political actions, the President was cheered to the echo as he entered and left the ' hall, was applauded with enthusiasm through out his address, and at Its close* received evi dence that In his case political differences were not a personal Issue. The dinner was given entirely by Democrats to the leader of their political opponents, and many of the kindly personal references made by the speakers of the evening, the majority of whom are Democrats, deeply touched the Presi dent. In his manner and words he showed deep gratification at the warmth of his reception from men who have fought him in political bat tles and are ready to fight him again to-morrow if they believe It necessary. Throughout th« evening, however, ran the dominant not» of ad miration for the character of the man himself. A NOTARIES GATHERING. The great dining hall of the Auditorium, which has been the scene of many notable gatherings, never held one more representative than that which assembled there to-night to do honor to President Roosevelt. (liven under the auspices of a Democratic organization, it was only nat ural that most of those present should be mem bers of that party: but scattered through th« hall were many men strong In Republican doc trine and high in the councils of their party In Illinois. At the President's table were Mayor ward F. Dunne. Charles F. Gunther, presi dent of the Iroquois Club; James Hamilton Lewis, the toastmaster; Samuel Alschuler, Judge Murray F.

Mr. Gunther then introduced as toastmaster of the evening James Hamilton Lewis, who ■was greeted with applause. Mr. Lewis said: Mr President, I do not present you to the Iro quois Club. I present them to yen. They are Democrats. Their Democracy is as your Republi canism—first to their flag ever loyal: to their country ever devoted; faithful to their fallow man and true to themselves. Gentleman of the banquac board, is it to be marvelled that such as these sought the counsel as to-night they delight la the companionship of a President of the whole people of the United States: on» whose sentiment of publio conduct Is not partylsm. but patriotism; whose theme in his commingling with mankind, la that of the I-atln poet Terence, saying: I am a m.in. and all things human touch m«. A man whose impartial Americanism is as broad as *he limits of tii-- Union which It blesses; th.» purity of whose intentions 13 as that of the Cru saci T3 in th« quasi of the cross; whose valor aa a soldier, whose justice as a ruler, has inspired affec on in the hearts of the humblest, while it haa commanded the salute of respect from the powerful of earth; truly, one In whom The element* are ■» mixM that Natiiro might «m 4op An,) nar to ■11 th» world. "This was a man. ' As the first formal speaker of the evening. Mr. Lewis introduced J. M. Dickinson, a leading; member of the Iroquois Club. Mr. Dickinson spoke to "The Iroqnols.

It Is a tribute rarely If ever offered before. The combination of qualities that would evoke such a tribute is rare. It la an expression of good will anil -^nfldence that even a President wh» has been crowned with an unprecedented victory has honored by his acceptance. It would 1n th calmest boson cause a thrill of pleasure tr» near his • leotanition that he is. in not only name, but In heart. President of the whole country, and as Presl ilt-nl has been received with a gooi faith and cor diality equal to that which Inspired it. If there may seem to others to be merit la the giving of thU Invitation, to us It seems that there is more merit In the frank. generous and confident way In which It haa been accepted.
