Krivoshein, formerly Min ister of Railroads. SLrty-three were sentenced to Imprisonment, while thirty-four were acquit ted. The trial brought out a recital of the atrocities committed by the authorities upon thn accused persons. The chief of the district, accompanied by a detachment of Cossacks, reached the estate soon after the devastation. All the peasants on the ground were at once gathered in. No In vestigation was made. The chief invited priests to administer the last sacrament to the prison ers, and then ordered the Cossacks to beat them all to death. The butchery lasted for four hours. Twenty-three peasants were killed and 130 were mutilated. The Cossacks, then tired out, com pelled the peasants to continue flogging each other, and men had to beat their own brothers, eons and fathers.

PAT SCHOOL. ABOL.IBHKD.-The termination of the Junior naval paymasters' Bchool of application probaMy enda that method of Instructing new ap pointees of the pay corps, for some, years at least. The school was established In ISO,, and there hay. been three sessions of It. attended by rifty two officers, of whom forty-four were new ap pointees and etfrht were already in the service. This represents M per cent of the authorised strength of the naval pay corps, so that more than one-fourth of its members have had the advantage of special training in Washington and have been sent out to the ships with a complelß knowledge of their du ties. There aro now thretj eliglbles on tll « al be made and the appointments to the corps will he m.u le one by one, without the occasion for any such wholesale adnii-Fton to the corps as has cr a_ acterized the filling of vacancies in the > Uat two years, in which time forty-four candidates ha%e been appointed as assistant paymasters. The i school has justified its establishment, and those who ha\e attended it have found themselves better equippea for the work before them. The young P a > masters who attended this year's Cla*.s have been asslMiea to duty atloat at once, and will join their re spect lye stations after h few days' delay. Tho nppolntee3 to the corps hereafter will probably re. *-ive their pro liminary instruction at some of the receiving snips, such as that at New York, and later under an older pay officer on a t>hlp in commission.

Some Recent Experiments in Smelt ing uith Electricity. Portland, Or«.. Oct. 1 <Spec!al).-a H. Clevenger, ■who was last year on the leoturlng staff of tho Le land Stanford Junior University, Is In charge of th© only electrlo hlast furnace for the manufacture of pijr iron In this country. The furnaca Is running at the Lowis and Clark Fxpoeltlon Grounds. In ron neotion with the jrovernment bureau for the testing of "black sands' which contain particles of Iron ore. The active operation of the furnaoe bejran on September 20, B nd Mr. Clenrenger has already suc ceeded in obtaining faultless P i K iron from ore which has hitherto been considered non-r .luclble. Several hundred pounds of the iron, tmelted last werk, has boon run Into moulds and carted to tho Columbia Engineering Works, where it has been cast by the regular tradesmen. It has been found to be without a tlaw. as small gear wheels and other nail articles have com* out of tho moulds in flv.e condition. The eJectno blast furnace is simply a huge elec trlc light, the electrodes, or carbon sticks, being some t;'ii Inches square and three feet li.ng. In stead hi ntakins a jump of a quarter of an inch, as In tho ca.=e of the Ktreet lamps, the current must leap a gap of four Inches. The slight sputter and hum of the common light be,.,, a deafening roar and the light is co intense that one must wear dark glasses before It is possible to work around the furnace without injuring the eyes. Into the large iron piece which serves as a holder for the upper carbon cold water Is kept flowing continu ously to prevent its melting away. Borne peculiar occurrences since the experiments were begun have served to make things lively. One of the*« we* the magnetizing of the Iron sheath which surrounds the furnace, <•> that it had an nfflnlty for shovels, picks, crowbars and other iron tools. To overcome this difficulty it was necessary to insert a copper strip in the sheath, which had the effect of breaking ihi magnetic wave. Regarding th< ■ \\ ■ , [menu Mr. Clevenger says: \V.- have j.rov. , beyond a doubt thai we can r*duce Iron from these or»a with the electrlo fur laoe With the blast furnace this bas hitherto been impossible, be.auso of the large ptT.'entage of titanium contained in them. in the magnetltS ore th'^ WaS l rou *ht from Wyomtng we knew that ,Vml Wl - aboul !8 ° rer ceni Iron We have been a c to secure about 95 per cent of this amount iy the new method.

Croicd Oiwfloxcs Garden — Many Thought Hearst Would Speak. There was almost as much of a demand to se<s the real County Fair and Circus at the Garden last night as there was the other evening: to he.;r Mr. Hearst Bpeak. At 9 o'clock the police formed a line across the entrance and would not allow any one to enter unt.il the crush within had been re lieved. The crowd on the sidewalk was of circus proportions all tho evening; and if the Garden had been as bis again It would probably have been full. Th!s Is the second annual County Fair, but tha first one last fall did not attract so much notice. There wero maay explanations last night of the change. Many declared the orowd thought Hearst •was going to speak, but having paid their 50 cents to ffet In. were Just as well pleased with the tight wire performer who took off his trousers In midair and tossed them down to an admiring multitude. Others said the excellent bill of circus acts was the attraction. The press agent bad his own theory, but he was too modest to state It. He said so him self. ThU year the cattle are all down cellar, and the Interesting and "truly rural" fruit and vegetable exhibit in the side room, where you can look at It in comparative quiet and get a colio of the imagination. The arena 13 more directly Kiven uy to circus features, such aa the "death trap loop," looped by "Daredevil" Babcock, and the rustic band, while In the first balcony are booths of all sorts and the manic Manicures are certainly a novelty at a county fair.

They are. going to have a contest soon. "The County Fair Blowhard" announces that "contest ants will work simultaneously upon the two hands of a single subject, and they will be jmlged as to speed, neatness, finish and silence." Speed was al ways an attribute of the successful manicure, but how long slnca silence also counted? There is also going to be a "writers' right." That will be Thursday.

Bert Banvard. of the Six Ban vards. flyln.sr trapeze- performers, fell to the net while trying to execute a short, sharp double turn and wrenched his shoulder so badly that h>» had to withdraw. The big- crowd cheered him ln^tilv. Extra patrolmen and roundsmen -were called from four police stations to control large crowds which were unable to get Into the Oarden. The crowd became so rough that Sergeant BaHey. of the Ten derloin station, who was there v*th four patrol men, found that he could not handle It, arid sent word to the p.-l!c* station for h«lp. Thlrtv men froni the Tenderloin and the East 22d street and the W>st 20th street stations were sent.

Van men were In great demand yesterday, for It was moving day. Up to about ten years ago more people chanced their house addresses on May l, but now the principal moving day of the year Is October 1. According to many real estate men, more peo ple found new homes in greater New Tork ypster day than on any similar day. Many families had to pay unusually high prices, van owners getting »1q a load. It 13 said. A feature of the moving day incidents was tha lt rKe .V'"Vi )er ?f? f *sro famili^a which moved from the dilapidated tenement houses in th« mid-West m a*, sections to modern apartment hou^-s .between 13M and 136 th streets, near l.*n.>x axenue A generous estimate of the increase "f porula tion In greater New Tork ever l* year ts about a hundred and fifty thousand. owins; to th« record breaking number of Immigrants arriving at this port since January 1. realty experts figure that about two hundred and fifty thousand persons have become residents of thts city in the last ten months But there is comfortable housing for at least two Jiundred thousand per.-, r,.^ more. Judging from the 'To Let" signs to be seen in the city In tenement houses Ike city is overbuilt, and if the head of a futnily wants a nice, new horn* In certain upper sections of the city lie can get such a home until next spring almost ut his own terms, if he goes to the builder, and not to the asrent of the house In some classes of realty the city has not a s'upplv equal to the demand. There aro not enough ilw»>if lng houses in the \\>c r side section north of 6»th street and south of 125 th street. The supply of snen hoiiFfs ther« ls not likely to be hear the demand for years, for th» demand is grnwiriir rapidly each y«af. The greater part of the distrl -r ls now occupied by apartment hotels, apartment houses and llathouses. There Is also .i scarcity of dwelling houses for on» or two families In ' th« Dyckman and Fort Washington Heights sections and In The Bronx. LUNATIC MISTAKEN POR 3URGLAR.
