FACTS ABOUT RIOT
Emperor William Thwarted Bu
reaucrats' Plans to Keep
Czar in the Dark.
2fw York Sun Special Service.
Berlin, Feb. 16.The czar is deeply
thankful to the emperor of Germany
for the latest proof of his friendship.
When Empeior William learned of
the massacre in St. Petersburg, Jan.
22, he suspected that those wno sur
round the czar would keep him ig
norance of the astounding details.
So the emperor sent to bt. Petersburg
by a confidential messenger, whom he
has employed often in secret missions,
a file oi German newspapers containing
elaborate accounts of "$ed Sunday 's"
Ureadtul events. The messenger was
ordered to deliver the newspapers to
Duke George ot Leuchtenberg, a young
officer of the horse guards, who mar
ried a princess, formerly one of the
czarina's maids of honor, and who is
in high favor with both emperor and
czar. The messenger bore also a letter
to Duke George, in which the emperor
instructed him to give the newspapers
to the czar when opportunity offered.
When the czar received the newspa
pers he was terribly excited and shaken.
I know nothing of all this.," he
exclaimed. All these things have been
kept from me. Whom can I trust?
Who will tell me the truth?"
These facts have come back from St.
Petersburg to court circles here and are
indubitable.
CZAR FEARS FOR THRONE
Hesitates to Call Zemsky ZaborAfraid
of Its Power.
St. Petersburg, Feb. 16.In spite of
Emperor Nicholas' personal inclination
in favor of the zemsky zabor, as inti
mated to Count Leo Denovitch Tolstoi,
the imperial decision to summon this
parliament has not yet been taken. The
czar is carefully weighing arguments
pro and con before committing himself
to this course. This statement is made
upon the authority of perhaps the most
liberal of the emperor's ministers, who
this evening informed the Associated
Press that the question remains under
consideration at the Tsarskoe Selo.
I myself have frankly urged upon
his majesty," the minister said, "the
view that the time has come when the
people should no longer be denied a
voice in the government and the same
counsel has been given by manv others,
who, like me, believe that the moderate
liberal element hich has been drifting
nw&y can thus be i allied to the support
of the government, llis majesty re
ceived our views svmpathetically. and,
I believe, personally is inclined to
adopt the course we suggest.
"It is no secret, however, that pow
erful influences about his majesty are
pressing the contraiv view and advanc
ing strong arguments which cannot
lightly be thrust abide, even if the de
cision finally is favorable."
It is understood that one of the argu
ments used by the court party against
the revival of the zemsky zabor is the
fact that the body in the old days
wielded immense power, being itself
responsible for the elevation of the Bo
manoff dynasty to the throne, and there
fore it might even undertake, if again
called into being, to elect a new ruler.
Generallv speaking, the position of
he opposition to the zemsky zabor is
voiced in yesterday's Moscow Gazette,
the leading exponent of the absolute
autocracy of Russia, in which it is
prophesied that the creation of the elec
toral assembly will lead to a struggle
between it and the emperor which in
evitably will end in the overthrow of
he autocracy.

SMOOT DECISION

Senate Committee Likely to Be
Aguinst Him, but Report
Will Wait.
New York Sun Special Service.
Washington, Feb. 16.The senate
committee on privileges and elections
will meet next Saturday to take up the
case of Senator Reed Smoot of Utah,
whose expulsion is demanded because of
his connection as an apostle in the Mor
mon church. The preparation of a re
fiort will be taken up. I is understood
hat no matter wh at he recommenda
tions of the committee may be, the ques
tion will not be taken up in the senate
until the next session. It has'been sug
gested that it may be considered dur
ing the special session called to confirm
the president's nominations after March
4, but this is saul to be unlikely.
There is nothing to indicate the sen
timent of the privileges and. elections
committee as to the expulsion of Mr.
Smoot. Those who have conducted the
inquiry on behalf of the petitioners ask
ing Mr. Smoot's expulsion declare there
is a majority of from one to three
against Senator Smoot. It is estimated
that all the democrats on the commit
tee will vote against Mr. Smoot, and
that at least two republicans will act
with them. This would give the oppon
ents of the senator a majority or one,
the committee being composed of eight
republicans and five democrats.
Friends of Mr. Smoot do not concede
that this computation is accurate.

Victoria, O., Feb. 16.Advices
were received yesterday by the steam

during the recent Russian cavalry raid
on Yin-kow and the Japanese communi

ed and also failed to retreat. In spite
of the fact that a Red Cross band was
attached to his arm, the Russians ar

rounded by his family, General Lew
Wallace, author of "Ben Hur," one
time minister to Turkey and veteran of
the Mexican and civil wars, died at
his home in this city last night, aged
78 years.
The health of General Wallace had
been waning for several years, and for
months it was generally known that
he could not long survive.
For more than a year he was unable
to assimilate food, and this, together
with his extreme age, made more diffi
cult his fight against death. But his
rugged constitution and remarkable vi
tality were responsible for prolonging
his life several months.
The deathbed scene was one of calm
ness. Beside his physician, only his
wife, his son, Henry Wallace of Indian
apolis, and Mrs. Wallace were present.
wo grandchildren, altho in the house,
were not admitted to the room.
When told by his physician that he
was dying, General Wallace was per
fectly calm, and his last words were
expressions of cheer to his grief-strick
en family. Bidding them farewell, he
said: "L am ready to meet my maker,"
and lapsed into unconsciousness from
which he did not recover.

LOUISE SPOILS PLOT
TO TAKE HER CHILD
Florence, Feb. 16.The affairs of the
Countess Montignoso (Princess Louise),
former wife of Frederick Augustus of
Saxony, took a decided turn yesterday.
For some time the countess has sus
pected that her German nurse, Mahote,
was planning to abduct the little Prin
cess Anna Monica Pia and place her in
the care of her father, the king.
Yesterday, under the pretext that the
German consul was waiting for the
nurse at the gate of the villa where
the countess is residing, the latter led
Mahcte to the gate. Then, quickly
pushing the nurse outside and closing
and locking the gate, the countess cried:
"Go to your master!"
The nurse made-vigorous efforts to
get back into the villa, even appealing
to Dr. Koerner, the Dresden lawyer,
who is seeking to recover the countess'
child for the icing, but she was unsuc
cessful.

BANK DIRECTORS
Committee of Depositors of Failed
Faribault Bank Will Rec
ommend Actions.
Special to Tina Journal,
Faribault, Minn., Feb. 16.Troubles
appear to be accumulating for the
directors of the First National bank. It
has always been felt by a large num
ber of the depositors that if the direct
ors had exercised a reasonable and prop
er supervision of, the affairs of the bank
it would never have failed. It is urged
that, inasmuch as its suspension is due
to their negligence or the unwarranted
trust they reposed in the president,
they should be compelled to make up
a ny loss that may accrue to the depos
itors.
It is learned that this view is shared
by a majority if not all of the commit
tee men recently appointed to look after
the interests of the depositors. They
have at all events been inquiring into
the legal aspects of the case with a
view to enforcing the claims of the de
positors and it is said that they have
found that in the more recent decisions
of the United States courts, it is held
that where directors fail to supervise
properly a bank's affairs, they oan be
held personally responsible for a ny loss
that may result from their negligence.
It is said that in their report, to be
made at the meeting on the 25th, the
committeemen will advise that, if
the assets of the bank are not
sufficient to pay dollar for dollar of
the depositor's claims, action be taken
to collect from the directors a sum suffi
cient to make up the total amount.
Whether such an aetion can be main
tained will, of course, depend upon the
evidence adduced at he trial.
Invested on Clement's Request.
There is one director at least on
whom such an action if successful
would seem to entail a great hardship.
His connection with the bank came
about in an unusual way. never
intended to become a permanent stock
holder and consequently was never at
any trouble to inform himself as to the
bank's condition when he bought the
stock that stands in his name. K. D.
Chase took ur D. W. Grant's stock, only
a few months ago and then at the per
sonal solicitation of Mr. Clement, and
on his assurance that he only wanted
him to carry it for a short time until he
himself was in a position to buy it.
Mr. Clement represented to Mr. Chase
that the stock was worth at least $175,
that he could get it for $150 and urged
him to take it as a personal accommo
dation and to relieve him of the neces
sity of putting it upon the market,
which he was extremely unwilling to do
at that time.
Mr. Chase expressed a reluctance to
do so as banking was not in his line
and he knew nothing about the busi
ness. Being further urged, and on Mr.
Clement's repeated assurance that he

four years in the state senate. In 1852 he
married Susan Arnold Elston.
At the outbreak of the civil war he was
made adjutant general of Indiana. Soon
after he became colonel of the .Eleventh
Indiana volunteers, serving in West Vir
ginia. Sept. 3, 1861, he became brigadier
general of volunteers. He commanded a
division at the battle of Fort Donelson,
and, as a major general, he commanded
a division at Shiloh. It was General Wal
lace who prepared the defenses of Cin
cinnati in 1863 and saved the city from
capture by General Edmund Kirby Smith.
Later he commanded the Middle depart
ment and Eight army corps, and inter
cepted Early's dash toward Washington,
fighting the battle of Monocacy July 9,
1864, and saving Washingten from cap

CHILD LABOR IN
THE LEGISLATURE
Social Democrats Secure Report
for Its Abolishment in
Wisconsin.
Special to The Journal.
Madison, Wis., Feb. 16.Social dem
ocrats have secured a report from the
special committee on rules to abolish
child labor in the legislature. Some of
the messengers and pages are under 14.
The social democrats sought early to
displace these with older boys, but the
legislature killed the measure, holding
that it was not amenable to state lawB.
The report favors conforming 'to the
child-labor law and will be adopted.
The senate today passed the Martin
bill exempting from taxation bequests
to municipalities, also the Kreutzer bill
establishing a municipal court in Mara
thon county. Hudnall's grain-inspec
tion measure was ordered to third read
ing.
In the assembly the committee on
education reported for indefinite post
ponement the bill providing for life
certificates for teachers alter fifteen
years of service.
The substitute report of the commit
tee on rules on the child-labor resolu
tion was adopted with only wo dis

sale of giant firecrackers was favora
bly reported.
The assembly followed the lead of
the senate on the capitol-architect res
olution, re-referring it to the joint com
mittee on capitol and grounds. The
hearing in the matter will be held Tues
day afternoon.
Mr. Carpenter's bill requiring persons
desirous of changing their names to

declines to say anything of his inten

yesterday affect not only the Standard
Oil company, but other combines. The
freight bill makes the railroads common
carriers and in this way all trusts are to

which has been set for consideration

measure was drawn up with the inten

state.
Appeal to President.
The Kansas Oil Producers' associa

President Eoosevelt:
The undersigned, representing the oil
producers of the state of Kansas and
speaking for the intelligent and Indus
trious people of the state and voicing
the spirit of American fair play every
where, appeal to jtou, and thru your sec
retary of ratt interior and by you to the
congress Jhe United States, for help
in the unaSrtaking of the legislature of
the state to protect the oil Industry of the
state from the oppression of the Standard
Oil trust.
Because the legislature presumes to ex
ercise a natural function of government
by legislating for the welfare and pro
tection of industries within the borders
of the state against the oppression of all
monopolies and because the legislature
proposes to try the experiment of a public
making profitable the oil industry, the
general manager of the Standard Oil com
pany has declared a boycott upon Kan

Insulted our people by expressing in the
public prints a groundless fear that they

Controls Bich Tract.
W further represent to you that a men
ace to the crude oil market is a con
tinued ownership by the Standard Oil
company of what is known as the "Fos
ter lease" of the Osage Indian reserva
tion. This reservation includes one and
one-half million acres of land, which
contains a reservoir of petroleum so rich
that if the Standard continues to own
and operate it it will have a supply of
oil that will make it independent of pri
vate production, not only in the west,
but all over the "United States.
The lease is nominally held by "straw
men," but it really is in the grip of the
Standard Oil company, and the oil pro
ducers appeal to the president, the sec
retary of the interior and the congress
to refuse the application now pending for
its extension. It is Uoo much for the
government to give the Standard Oil com
pany or its agents, an organization which
is already so powerful that It presumes
to be greater than the people or the gov
ernment, whose courts give it protection.

New Orleans, Feb. 16.For the first
time in the history of leprosy cases in
the United States, and probably in the
world, physicians here say, a leper has
been disenarged as permanently cured
from, he Louisiana lepers' camp near
here.
A 13-year-old boy was isolated with
a large number off other lepers in the
camp.
A first the boy's condition seemed
hopeless, but he gradually improved
and was separated from those in the
advanced stages. has returned to

lean Asphalt company. The action of
the court brings the asphalt dispute to
the critical point, for it is now incum
bent upon the government here to make
the next move.
The asphalt company last summer
made a strong appeal to the staet de-
Ead
artment here for aid, asserting that it
been denied justice by the Venezu
elan government. The president re
quested Attorney General Moody to re
port whether there had been such a
miscarriage of justice as would warrant
a formal protest.
It is believed that the opinion, which
will soon be mmade public, is to the
effect that the asphalt company has not
been fairly treated, not only according
to the principles of English law, but
even taken as a basis the ordinary Ve
nezuelan legal practice.

rather delicate. Now that President
Castro has returned to Caracas, it is
expected that our minister will renew
his efforts to prevent the case from
roceeding to a point where a summary
must be made upon the Vene
zuelan government to right the wrong.

Prove What the Great Kidney Remedy, Swamp-Root, Will
for YOU, Every Reader of The Journal May Have
a Sample Bottle Sent Absolutely Free Mail.
It used to be considered that only urinary and
bladder troubles were to be traced to the kid
neys, but now modern science proves that nearly
all diseases have their beginning in the disorder
of these most important organs.
Therefore, when your kidneys are we ak or out
of order, you can understand how quickly your
entire body is affected, and how every organ
seems to fail to do its duty.
If you are sick or "feel badly" begin taking
the great kidney remedy, Dr. Kilmer^s Swamp
Boot, because as soon as your kidneys begin to
get better they will help all the other organs to
health. A trial will convince anyone.
I was out of health and run down generally had no ap
petite, was dizzy and suffered with headache most of the
time. I did not know that my kidneys were the cause of
my trouble, but somehow felt that they might be, and I
began taking Swamp-Root There is such a pleasant taste
to Swamp-Boot, and it goes right to the spot and drives dis
ease out of the system. It has cured me, making me
stronger and better in every way, and I cheerfully recom
mend it to all sufferers. Gratefully yours,
MRS. A. L. WALKER, 831 East Linden st, Atlanta, Go.
We ak and unhealthy kidneys are responsible
for many kinds of diseases, and if permitted to
continue much suffering and fatal results are
sure to follow. Kidney trouble irritates the
nerves, makes you dizzy, restless, sleepless and
irritable. Makes you pass water often during
the day and obliges you to get up many times
during the night, unhealthy kidneys cause rheu
matism, gravel, catarrh of the bladder, pain or
dull ache in the back, joints and muscles make
your head ache and back ache, cause indigestion,
stomach and liver trouble, you get a sallow, yel
low complexion, make you feel as though you

How to Find Out.
I there is a ny doubt in your mind as to your
condition, take from your urine on rising about
four ounces, place it in a glass or bottle and let
is stand twenty-four hours. If on examination it
is milky or cloudy, if there is a brick-dust set
tling, or if small particles float about in it, your
kidneys are in need of immediate attention.

sicians in their private practice, and is taken by

New York Sun Special Service.
New York, Feb. 16.Sitting back to
back in the home of Dr. A. L. Nelden,
at No. 13 East Twentieth street, one
woman permitted the second finger of
her right hand to be grafted to the
stump of the second finger of he left
hand of another woman who had lost
part of her digit in an accident soma
years ago.
These women are practically strangers
to each oth n.vcr hr.ving met until
a few days ago for thi ne*t two or
three w -k viey will ne bound together
almost as closely as were the famous
Siamese twins. Side by side they re
cline in narrow hospital cots, their
arms from the elbows down tightlv
wound in bandages, and the whole en
cased in a plaster cast.
Dr. Nelden, who performed the opera
tion, is the same physician who, more
than a yeir ago, declared that lie had
grafted an ear from one man's head to
another.
