T>e revolt, it is pointed out. occurred on the
anniversary of a mining disaster which was
earned by the recklessness of some officers and
resulted in the loss of a dozen lives.
Copies of the Viborgr manifesto of the out

A naval squadron, including the battleship
EiaTS. is reported to have sailed from Reval this
afternoon for Sveaborg.
The telegraph building; here has been ruined,
and the barracks and cathedral have been bad
ly damaged by the fire of the 11-Inch guns. The
numbers of wounded and killed have probably
been overestimated.
The socialists are on the alert, and the towns
people are in fear of a bombardment if the
squadron arrives here.
There was a panic all day long yesterday
among the summer residents on the islands of
the archipelago, owing to the fall of stray bul
lets and shells, which caused a number of casu
alties, both on the islands and in the city. A
man sitting on the veranda of the yacht club
was mortally wounded and a servant was killed.
For more than a week Russian revolutionists
have been working among the troops, distribut
ing the Viborg and the Group of Toil manifestoes,
and it is reported that on Sunday fifteen hun

The Dews of the revolt here caused the great
est excitement at Cronstadt. Precautions were
hastily taker, by the authorities there. The
hfSaMlllilnrie of the guns on board some of tho
n-airhips were removed, while detachments of
troops were sent on board other ships.
MUTINIES IN THE FLEET.
Four Warships Reported Seized —
Czar's Yacht Held Ready.
St. Petersburg, Aug. 2. — St. Petersburg is anx
iously awaiting news of the outcome of yester
day's battle between th* mutineers and the gov
ernment forces at Sveaborg. No definite Infor
mation ha*- been received here owing to the
damage done to the land telegraph wires. The
advices received by the government by wireless
telegraphy have not been divulged.
The utmost importar.ee is attached to the con
duct of the fleet. According to semi-official in
timation the crews of these vessels are still un
der the control of their officers, but private ad
%-ices say that some members of the crews have
be^n confined below decks for fear of mutiny.
There was a rumor In circulation here to»night
that four of the ships of the Baltic squadron
were in complete mutiny and roaming at large
in the Gulf of Finland, and that the commandant
at Cronstadt had been ordered to prepare for an
attack by these vessels.
It is. worthy of Bate that a dispatch to an offi
cial agency from Heleingfors announcing the ar
rival of the fleet off Sveaborg. and the fact that
that U oper,f j fire, does not mention what it
opened fire against.
Vice Admiral Birileff presumably has gone to
HelKingfors to assume personal command of the
fleet. Grand Duke Alexander Michaelovitch,
the Emperor's brother, is not with the fleet, as
previously reported, but at Gatchina with the
Km press Dowager.
The most intense anxiety still prevails with
regard to a possible uprising at Cronstadt and
the spread of the revolt through the entire naval
establishment. A personal visit by a corre
spondent of The Associated Press to Cronstadt,
however, shows that the authorities There re
ceived timely warning of the events at Sveaborg
and nipped a possible revolt In the bud. They
had the situation well in hand on Tuesday night,
and quietly placed detachments of infantry at
the doors of the marine barracks and removed
the carbines from the racks in the buildings.
Yesterday morning the fifteen hundred sailors
composing the 7th Equipage, quartered at Cron
stadt. whose loyalty had been distrusted, found
themselves prisoners. The correspondent saw
them looking out of the windows of their bar
racks and unable to communicate with the out
side. The streets of Cronstadt are swarming
with troops of the loyal Guard regiments and
the newly arrived men of the Twenty-fourth Di
vision.
The commandant at Cronstadt ordered the
confiscation of newspapers from Si. Petersburg
in order to prevent the news of the outbreak at
Sveahorg from reaching the islanders. This
measure was fairly successful.
A group of agitators who went over to Cron
stadt In the same boat with the correspondent
attempted to hold meetings and communicate
news of the Sveaborg happenings. They were
dispersed, however, and fled before the levelled
rifles of the soldier?.
The officers of the navy department at Cron
stadt are besieged by the wives and relatives of
officers on board the ships at Helslngfors, who
are frantic ever the reports that the crews had
risen and killed their superiors.
As th* correspondent was crossing from Cron
etadt to Oranienbaum he saw the Imperial yacht
Polar Star lying with steam up at the pier be
low the imperial residence at Peterhof.
The general telegraph office of St. Petersburg
and surrounding buildings were occupied by de
tachments of Guards juft before midnight. The
authorities evidently fear a genera! attempt to
cut communication between the capital and the
Interior.
NO CRONSTADT MUTINY.
Communication Restored — Move for
General Strike.
St. Petersburg. Aug. 1. — Telephone communi
cation with Cron.-tadt m-as restored this after
noon, ami at 6 o'clock this evening a message
to The Associated Press said that no disturb
ance had occurred there during the day.
Both the telegraph and telephones lines to
Cronstadt were cut la«t r.^ght. The chief anxiety
here was in regard to the loyalty of the mala
part of the Baltic fleet, consisting of a battle
ship and three cruisers, which were hurriedly
sent from Reval to Helsingfora. A telegram,
aaid to be from the commander of the fortress,
was received here to-day, but its meaning was
zxat clear. It said: 'The entire crews cf four
worships have mutinied."
Other dispatches mentioned the crews of the
torpedo boat destroyers and other ships on the
'spot as rebelling, while another dispatch said:
For a time, with a portion of the crews locked
below decks, the loyal members of the crews
fired upon the mutineers.
HH m ■«• • from an unexpected quarter has
caused dismay in government circles and the
feeling of alarm is increased by the bad news
from the interior. The strikes are spreading
rapidly. The whole of the Donets Basin, the
c*=tre cf the :...:...ui and En:e!j!r.s: ii.Jufcliy, U
in the grip of the strikers. The ■ revolutionists
are wildly jubilant. Although the mutiny; at
Sve'aborg; occurred unexpectedly, they decided
to take advantage or it and. try to precipitate
the g-er.cml .•■.»:.,.»■• I between tho government
and the people for which they have been pre
paring. They express supreme confidence that
the military supports of the government will
break where least expected, and that the gov
ernment will find, when the teat comes, that the
army Is divided against Itself, and that units
succeed to be loyal will fight on the side of the
people.
The workmen's councils here and at Moscow
have already Issued warnings to the workmen's
organizations through the country to hold them
selves in readiness to strike, and the revolu
tionary military committee is acting with energy.
They say that the crews of the warships at
St. Petersburg are ready, and that if the Cron
stadt squadron mutinies all the ships In the Bal
tic vrlll soon be in their hands. The palace fit
Peterhof is under the guns of the Cronstadt
fortress.
Emissaries have been dispatched to the ports
of Reval, Riga and Ldbau. and If they are suc
cessful, the capital will be immediately hemmed
in by revolutionists.
The proletariat organizations of Finland yes
terday Issued orders to begin a general strike
through the grand duchy at noon to-day. Tho
proclamation exempts only the men employed at
the electric light, ges and waterworks in the
cities.
The "Btech" thinks that civil war is at hand.
The Liberals in general believe that the gov
ernment will now be forced to discard all pre
tence of reform, and that a military dictatorship
is immediately ahead.
Admiral Birileff, Minister of Marine, has sailed
for Helsingfors on the schoolship Asia. The
Admiralty officials decline to make public tho
nature of the advices which they have received
from the scene of the mutiny.
Thus far no troops have been sent to Fin
land from Russia proper, but General Saltza,
commander of the military forces. in Finland,
has been authorized to draw on all the garri
sons in Finland, if necessary. All told there are
about forty thousand Russian troops in the
grand duchy.
POLISH REVOLT GROWS.
Governor General Threatens to
Resign His Post.
Warsaw, Aug. I.— ln view of the recent out
rages In and around Warsaw, the increased
energy of the revolutionists and the inadequacy
of the repressive measures at present in force,
the Governor General has informed the govern
ment at St. Petersburg, in emphatic terms, that
he will resign unless he is permitted to establish
a strict' state of siege. It is probable that the
government will accept hie resignation. A con
tinuation of the present state of affairs is impos
sible.
The secret printing works here, where all
socialist newspapers and proclamations have
been printed, which was recently discovered by
the police, is a large and well equipped plant.
The presses are driven by electricity. Several
thousand copies of proclamations by the out
lawed parliament were found. Twenty arrests
were made.
THE MURDER OF H. HERTZENSTEIN.
Popular Leader Killed by Black Hundred
Assassins at Terioki.
St. Petersburg, Aug. I.— -The report of the
murder of M. Hertsenstein, a leader of the Con
stitutional Democrats in parliament, is con
firmed. He was assassinated at his country
house near Terioki, Finland, by men in the pay
of the Black Hundred organization.

was hit twice and fell dead. Ills daughter was
wounded in the hand. The murderers escaped.
Three hours prior to the murder, a telephone
message was received at a newspaper office from
Moscow asking for news of M. Hertzenstein, and
saying that it was reported in Moscow that he
had been assassinated.
M. Hertzenstein was of Jewish descent and
wealthy. His attacks on the Minister of Fin
ance in the lower house attracted much atten
tion. He was a practical banker, having been
for a long time the secretary of the Moscow
Land Bank. He was a recognized authority on
finance. His family had renounced the Jewish
faith and become Orthodox Russians several
generations ago. lie occupied a prominent place
in Moscow society and was highly popular
among the peasants.
St. Petersburg, Aug. 2.— The Liberals are
planning great demonstrations here and at Mos
cow at the time of the funeral of the murdered
Deputy, M. Hertzenstein. In the present temper
of the people these demonstrations may result
in collisions and bloodshed such as marked the
funeral of Prince Troubetskoy. Tho Liberals
have applied for permission to transport the body
through St. Petersburg from the Finnish to the
Moscow railroad stations. This has not yet
been granted.
Two persons suspected of complicity in the
murder and a gendarme of Terioki. who re
peatedly was seen in their company, have been
•fretted.
l*Maater Stolypin proceeded by yacht yester
day to Feierhof. where he laid before the Em
l-eror for his signature the ukases appointing
Count Hoyden. Prince Nicholas Lvoff and Alex

decision Is not expected before Friday, and team
are entertained that th«> revolt at Svcaborg may
influence him unfavorably in the matter.

CAMPAIGN IN LEYTE.
Force Ready to Round Up Bandits
— The Rice Imports.
Manila, Aug. 1. — General Lee, commander of
the American forces on the island of Leyte, has
telegraphed to General Wood that he has five
hundred regular troops, besides a number of
scouts and constabulary, ready to begin a move
ment to round up the rebellious Pulajanes. The
municipal presidents charge that the recent out
break was caused by the action of Governor
Deveyra. in disarming the municipal police of
many towns, thus leaving the homes of the peo
ple practically unguarded.
Gm^ernor General Ide has received reports say
ing that in the fiscal year ended June 30 the
importations of rice to the Philippines decreased
61,072,411 pounds, valued at $3.064488 in gold.
Commenting on the reports, the Governor Gen
eral says:
From thesfc reports it appears that the num
ber of pounds of rice imported into the Philip
pines during the fiscal year of lIMMt was some
thing Iras than three-sevenths of the importa
tions in 1901, and the- cash sent out from the
islands for rice was less than four-elevenths of
the sum sent in 1894. If the same ratio of
decrease continues for a year, or even a semester,
no more rice will be imported, and In two years
the islands, besides supplying the home demand,
ought to be exporting rice.
The publication of the report has caused a
controversy. The local shippers contend that the
decrease of importations is a result of tho pov
erty of the people, who, it is alleged, are not
buying rice, but are living on yams and other
food. The shippers say that the Philippines
will never export rice.
SCIENTISTS MEIT AT YORK.
I R. Lankester Speaks on Recent Discov
eries — American Gifts.
London, Aug. 1. — The annual meetng of the
British Association for the Advancement of
Science began at York to-day, under the presi
dency of Edwin Ray Lankester. In his address
the president outlined the advancement of sci
ence during the last quarter of a century, which
he said "will stand out forever as that in which
new chemical elements possessing astounding
properties have been made known with extraor
dinary rapidity and sureness of demonstration."
Mr. Lankester devoted much of his address to
a review of tho increased knowledge concerning
radium, and gave Ernest Rutherford, of McGill
University, Montreal, much of the credit for in
vestigation in this direction.
Speaking of astronomy, Mr. Lankester made
reference to the method of Professor Pickering,
of Harvard University, of charting the sky
rapidly and his records of the sky as a whole.
"This wonderful new method." continued tha
president. " is a mode of keeping a record of
present movements ami chances which promises
much for tho future of astronomy."
The speaker made acknowledgment of the as
sistants rendered by wealthy Americans to
scientific research in providing great telescopes
and equipment, as well as other helpful gifts for
other branches of science. "In the United States
this is not infrequent," said the speaker, "while
in this country it Is rare."
In the course of the session it was announced
that Sir David Gill had been nominated for the
presidency of the association for 11)07.
TAXPAYERS WANT THIRD TRACK.
The Allied Taxpayers' Associations of The
Bronx held a meeting, last nl*h* at Bedford Park
Casino, Webster avenue and 200 th street, and pro
tested against the Rapid Transit Commission's re
cent decision against the building of a through ex
press third track on the Third avenue elevated
line from Manhattan to Bronx Park. Philip Mc-
Kinley presided.
Julius Haas declared that the present Rapid
Transit Commission should be replaced by one con
sisting of two members from every borough in
the greater city, except Richmond, which should
have one member.
President McCaffrey of the East Tretnont Tax
payers' Association offered a resolution calling on
the Kapid Transit Commissioners "to reconsider
rind grant, upon proper terms and restrictions, the
application of the interbofeouKh Rapid Transit
Company to third-truck the elevated line In The
Bronx as submitted by the compnnv and rejected
by the board." The resolution approved the plans
for extended rapid transit agreed upon by the
board, but maintained that they were insufficient.

HOW TO ESCAPE EIECTKIC CHAIB.
Get a Good Lawyer and Keep Quiet, Says
Ex-District Attorney of Queens.
Ex-District Attorney Merrill, of Queens, who
has been retained by Joseph Adams, of Chester
Park, who shot his cousin last Saturday night,
sometime ago gave uterance to the following
remarkable statement, gathered, he said, from a
rather broad experience;
No man need ro to the electric chair if he
does two things— shuts his mouth tight and en
gages a good lawyer immediately after the
slaying. The law is such to-day that no per
son observing that simple rule need bo con
victed of murder in the first desre*.
Adams is the young bridegroom who slew
another bridegroom because, as his relatives
claim, the other man and his family had issued
statements derogatory to Mrs. Adams, his
bride. Adams himself has made no statement
whatever, save to say to Acting Captain Lynch,
of the Richmond Hill police station, that he shot
Bchmitzler in self-defence.
Coroner Ambler, at the inquest yesterday, held
Adams without bail to await the action of the
grand jury, tho coroner's jury having recom
mended such a course.
As the prisoner was being led from the room
a man, said to be a relative of the slain man,
sprang at his throat, crying: 'You coward:"
He was restrained by the ofllcers. who, however,
did not arrest him.
"There is nothing In this case." said Mr. Mer
rill after the inquest. "We will get this young
man off. He acted in self-defenco. His wife
had been defamed. He went to the house quietly
to see if the people there were the authors of the
anonymous postal cards ehe had been receiving.
He was attacked by two men, who used chairs
as clubs, and he defended himself."
KANSAS WHEAT, 80,000,000 BUSHELS.
Larger Yield Than Was Expected— to
Farmers $50,000,000
[By Telegraph to The Tribune.]
Kansas City, Mo.. Aug. I.— The wheat crop of
Kansas has turned our far beyond expectations
of any one who attempted to make estimates of
the output before the harvest. Up to July 1 the
general expectation was that the yield would
be less than last year. The thrashing has now
gone far enough to indicate that the state has
raised about ninety million bushels of wheat, or
thirteen million bushels more than in 1905, anil
with one exception the largest crop that Kan
sas has ever produced.
Some phenomenal yields are reported in nearly
every county in the state. Many fields produced
forty to fifty bushels to the acre, and there are
few counties that do not report tields yielding
thirty bushels or more.
At the present market values this years wheat
crop is worth $."i»Mi(K»,o(fc» to the farmers of
Kansas. The corn crop of Kansas promises
to be about 2<lO.<fc<O,<JUO bushels, worth about
