Waisaw, Mav 1.TMrty-cme persons
were killed and many were wounded in
a conflict here this afternoon between
troops and -tvorknien.
A procession of workmen carrying red
flags was stopped by cavalry and in
fantry. The cavalry charged and the
infantry fired a volley with the above
result. Fifteen of the wounded were
removed to the hospital, but many
others were taken to their homes.
Another collision between soldiers and
workiren occurred at the corner of
Zlote and Sosnowa streets. A military
patrol fired on the crowd and kiTTed or
wounded twenty persons.
In a small rioi at Lodz a priest was
stoned. This led to a^scuffle between
the crowd and the police, in which four
men were shot.
Old Believers at Moscow Again Wor

Moscow, Mav 1.The removal of re

which had been closed for foity-nine

outbreak. No tram cars or carriages

The streets are crowded, but every
thing was quiet up to noon. Manv pa

Czar Decrees that Subjects May Wor
ship as They Please.
St. Petersburg, May 1.The grant
ing of real religious freedom to the
people of Russia by the czar yesterday
as an Easter gift was an event of
highest significance, in comparison with
which the remission of millions of dol
lars of taxes to the peasantry, a long
list of decorations and six pages oi
of bureaucratic officials are
ardly worth comment.
Liberty of conscience has been re
peatedly nroclaimed, and Procurator
Pobiedonostzeff in his famous reply to
the evangelical petition in 1888 con
tended that it existed in the empire.
The fact is that as a trysting place all
religions have been tolerated in Russia,
but none has been allowed to trespass
upon the orthodox faith as enunciated
from the mosque that faces the church
on the Nevsky prospect in St. Peters
Sects Persecuted.
Ppople were free to remain in the
faith of their fathers, but were prohib
ited from making proselvtes. Perse
cutions of every kind were directed
against the descendant sects, especially
the old believers. Against the dis
sidents are enumerated a thousand and
one peculiar heresies.
The Stundists and Molkans of south
ern Russia.^ now the principal native
nonconformists, who might be described
as the Quakers of Eussia, have made
tremendous progress recent years in
3pite of persecution which often has
driven them eastward and made them
pioneers of Russian colonization
There are in all about twelve thousand
of these dissidents.
Jews, Catholics and Lutherans.
The emperor's act will also affect
about forty million belonging to the
alien faiths, such as the Jews, Catholics
and Lutherans of Poland and the Baltic
provinces, the Protestants of Finland
ancl the followers of Islam and Buddha in
the Urals, the Crimea, the Caucasus,
Turkestan and central Asia. These
figures are only approximate, as proba
bly millions who are normally orthodox
secretly profess other religions. Whole
villages of Mussulmans baptized into
the orthodox communion by a ruse pe
titioned in vain to be permitted to re
turn to Mohammedaoism.
While the emperor's approval of the
action of the cmmittee of ministers
distinctly holdsto orthodoxy as the state
religion and creates the usual commis
sion to work out many details in con
nection with the offspring of mixed
marriages during minority, legitimati
zation of marriages, registration of
deaths and births, it also rescinds a
number of acts aimed specifically at
various religions and establishes the
princirjle of absolute freedom of worship
and the right of every Russian who be
comes of age to change his confession
of faith, in which the assurance of re
ligious freedom lies.
Belief for Catholics.
It also contemplates relief of Catho
lics and Poles from the present vexa
tious restrictions as to preaching the
catechism, the Bussian language, etc.
The emperor has accepted the axiom of

not hold strange children against their

Washington Report Has Postmas

Plan of H. C. Frick.
Washington, May 1.It is reported
here that Postmaster General Cortelyou
has been agreed upon for president of
the Equitable Life Assurance society
of New York as a compromise between
President Alexander of that society and
First Vice President Hyde.
This arrangement is said to have
been brought about by United States
Senator Bjaox and Henry C. Prick,
chairman of the executive committee
of the society.
Mr. Cortelyou declines to discuss the
Denials in New York.
New York, May 1.An official of
the Equitable Life Assurance society
said today:
Mr. Alexander is president of the
Equitable. The report that the presi

cannot be correct."
Mr. Hyde was shown the Washington

asked to bo excused from commenting
on it.

now on is costing the county $100 a

Members of the committee are also

The committee has no doubt as to
the power of congress under the con

commerce commission, or any tribunal,
to fix rates. The attornev general is
its adviser in this respect. Its oppo

power the commission or any other

the president said in his last annual
message, in which he brought the rail
load rate question to a head.

place in the sentiment of the commit

friends are rubbing their hands in glee

done which will diminish the control
of railroads over their own properties,

The feeling did not in any way reduce

his cross-examination of John Kolb, the

and skillful questioning the state's at
torney secured some important state
ments. The alibi was limited to three
men who are charged with the murder
Kalderwit, Hammon and Kolband
Mabel Ward and Alger Waller. Kolb
stated repeatedly that these five were
all who were in room 18 at the Grand
Central hotel on the night of the mur
der. The witness also admitted that
beer parties were given almost nightly
in the Ward-Hammon apartments. He
said there was one on the night of the
murder as well as the night before and
the two nights following. Kolb refused
to admit any alliance with any of the
women in the case, but admitted being
a steady attendant at the beer parties.
Showing Kolb's Character.
Kolb was on the stand all the morn
ing. He followed his original line of
testimony, but was led into making ad
missions of actions not included in his
direct account of the days preceding
and following the murder as well as the
day of the murder. One purpose of Mr.
Hall's apparent hit or miss method was
to bring out he natural side of the
witness. Kolb lost some-M ftis dignity
and became at times quite "cockey"
and even flippant with the attorney.
After a little preliminary work in re
gard to roofing paints, he Was asked
to tell what he knew of the murder. He
remembered reading that the job was
done bv three men and a woman who
waited outside with a -white horse. He
did not remember much of the descrip
tions of the men. He also read ac
counts of the Crawford-Palmer case at
the same time.

carefully, as tho curious as to whence

the postmark and then turned to Miss

they examined the postmark and the

Mankato, Minn., May 1.Testimony

George R. Koch tended to prove that
Dr. Gebhardt, the murdered man, was
haunted by a fear, inspired by the re
ceipt of a poison package, that some
one sought his life.
Miss Lydia Schapekahm, who was
Dr. Gebhardt's office girl, told the
story of the receipt of the package thru
the mail and of the manner in which
the murdered dentist considered it at
that time. The day is being devoted
by the state to an effort to prove that
a previous attempt had been made on
the life of Dr. Gebhardt and that Dr.
Koch was responsible for it.

failed to prove that the former show
girl murdered Caesar Young, they said,
and were content to stand or fall on

that her troubles were rapidly nearing

To her future, if the jury sets her

There is only one plan she has made,
and that is to hurry to Washington
on the first train with her father. When
asked if she would return to the stage,
she replied that she had offers at big
salaries. It has even been suggested
that Nan Patterson, her sister Julia
