LONDON, Nov. 13.
A cablegram from Stockholm today staled that announcement has been
Hide by the Kerensky Government that 'the Holsheviki uprising in Russia has
bttn put down.
"Premier Kcrcnsky's troops have entered Petrogruel and are masters
of a portion of the city," according to a telegraph ngency dispatch receive'd
here today.
This is the first word indicating that the fighting known to have been in
progress for the last forty-eight hours around the capital has actually reached
the city itself.
The dispatch asserted that Kerensky's forces now controlled the historic
Nevsky Prospekt. The Bolshevik! were reported by the telegraph agency to
bt fleeing to the Smolyn Institute, their governmental headquarters, for refuge
The provisional Government's loyal forces deployed down the Nevsky
Prospekt and swept through other thoroughfares. According to unofficial
reports, the fighting was from barricade to barricade in the streets themselves,
but with the Bolshevik! making fainter and fainter resistance as the strength
of the loyal troops was made apparent to them.

The Holsheviki numbered sailors from the

at r.o.ooo.
Apparently the lighting centered on the
Nevsky I'rosnekt the s.uno street which
has already been repeatedly dyed with the
blood of 'arlous revolutionists It wan
along this thoroughfaie that the -Czar's
guards made their last Mand against the
victorious Duma revolutionists back In
March; where the Kronstniltfrebels swept
along with their armored automobiles a few
months later, spattering death, imd alone
wliloh, during the last week, the Holsheviki
executed their coup in t-elzliiR- control of

Into tlie city thero was heavy lighting
around Gntchlna, a few miles from the cap

resulted In the Trotsky.Lenlne troops being

the leaders of the Ilolshelkl had offered to

throughout Sunday.
The lighting centered along the Nevsky
I'rospekt Military cadets, lcyal to the
provisional Government, rode up and down
tho street In motorcars In an effort to clear
it of the Maximalists and anarchist forces,
but were taken nt a disadvantage when fire
was opened upon them from machine Runs
mounted on the roofs of buildings.
Most of the Chilian population took flight,
but a few of the bf.lder souls sought points
of vantage In buildings flanking tho street
and not a few of them were shot down.
There was n burst of sharp fighting In front
of the Winter Palace (the former rcsldenco
of the ex-Czar), and Maximalist soldiers
took shelter In tho garden and tired upon
the street through the palings of tho Iron
fence that Incloses the palace garden. A
red flag was hoisted on the palace grounds,
but fell when the staff was riddled with
rifle bullets.
I'etrograd cables asserted that the garri

Town Meeting Party Wins

Check Lists
The Town Meeting patty won tod.i

in tho Election Court, gaining the (' lurt's
pcimlsslon to search the voters,' ihecSc lists
in the Prothonntary'H nlllce for ovldtnce of
Judges Klnletter and .Martin, presiding In
the court, handed down their decision after
a long and heated legal wianglo between
Henry J. Scott, Town Meeting counsel, and
Jtepresentafive John It K. Scott, attorney
for thu Iti publican city rommittee. Tho
examination of the lists whUli are In sealed
envelopes In tho l'rothonotnryVs office, was
begun shortly before noon by Henry .1.
Scott and Ilobcrt S Bright, another lawyer
for the Independents.
Tho Town Meeting part, through exam
ination of the check lists, hopes to reveal
that enough ballots were Illegally Inv.ill
datid to elect at least two of tho Town
Meeting row landld.itcs. The independents'
contention Is that thousands of ballots
were thrown out because they wcie tuns.
marked for tho Town Meeting ticktt and
also for District Attorney Itotan, unop
posed Organization candidate for re-election.
"From theso check lists we can erulekly
determine If "there Is anv Indication of
fraud," said Henry J. Scott, lu making a
petition to be allowed to examine tho llsja.
Ho brought out that Kepresentatlve Scott
had Islted l'rothonot.iry Walton nnd told
him he had no right to allow any one to see
tho lists.

counsel tn examine tho lists, maintaining
that it was without the Klecllon Court's
Jurlsillctlori to grant It He cited tho act
of 1839 as his authority.
This Is a meio fighting expedition," he
declared. ' Tho Town Meeting party has
no evidence, but hopes to get It by inspect
ing the books and tearing opm the envel
opes. They have no right to do tills. Tho
Hats would loso their evidential value If
opened,' and the Itepubllc.in city committee
wished to cairy the case to a higher court."
Judge Klnletter disagreed with Itepre
sunfatlve Scott, holding that the act of
1830 clearly n.ado the lists public records.
He did not Issue a court order compelling
l'rothonotary Walton tn allow examination
of the lists when Mr. Walton said he was
willing for such Inspection.
It was nnnounced today that argument
on the Town Meeting petition to open tho
ballot-boxen In tho nineteenth and eleventh
divisions of tho Klghteenth Ward would
be hedd Thursday at in o'clock.
The Organization began the uso or ponce

publican Organization city committee. Asked
why he did not file the 700 petitions he
promised yesterday, he pointed to a leather
bag and replied:
"We have the petitions here. Wait."
Henry J. Scott, representing tho Town
Meeting party, made no request for Judicial
inspection of ballots. When the court ad
journed late In the afternoon, returns from
one-halt of. tho Twentieth Ward had been
tabulated. The count of the first eighteen
wards, as tallied by lawyers representing
the Republican City Committee, showed
that the Town Meeting party had gained
about forty votes.

The tlilrte-eii-yeai-eId boy found shot to

yestf relay afternoon wh Identified as An
drew PodkovlsUI. of Swedehind. The Idea
tlftcutlem was made by the father at Under

which place the body wus taken.
Tho father, a Polander, said, through an
Interpieter, that his son left home nt the
usual time for the public school In Swede
land, but had not been to school, He did
not know how ho came to be so far from
his home, nor had he nny idea as to how
tho boy might have met his death, and tho
authorities have no clues.
Thero Is nothing1 to Indicate that the boy
shot himself accidentally, and It Is the gen
eral belief that the boy was murdered,
Nothing since the Keyier murder at the
Gulf Mills twenty years ago has so stirred
the community.
Tho boy was found lying along the road
