Panic Stricken Jews Flee
Massacre in Russian Capital
Premier Clashes With Czar
and Tries to Resign
but Fails.
London, Nov. 12., 5 a.m.Hundreds of panic-stricken Jews and many
other persons are fleeing from St. Petersburg to escape the threatened!
massacre, now announced throughout the Russian capital by means of
handbills. Trains and steamers to Finland and other points are crowded
and the rich Jews are hiding their valuables before leaving the city, lest
they become spoils for a mob like the one which sacked Odessa last week.
Meanwhile the terror is spreading to other parts of the empire. An
exodus from Odessa was prevented only by the energetic action of Gov-
ernor-General Kaulbars when the people heard that another uprising
had been planned.
Fearing that the granting of autonomy to Poland at this time would
signal the dismemberment of the Russian empire, Count Witte is taking
measures to prevent it by instituting martial law thruout the country.
In Warsaw the authorities propose to end the strikes by cutting off the
supplies of fuel from the people, leaving the cold to force them to
Panic-stricken Jews in a wild
flight aTe crowding every train
and boat that leaves this city. Hand
bills distributed on th"e streets an
nounce that Sunday will witness a gen
eral massacre of the intellectuals,''
students and Jews.
The reactionaries assert this is a
move by Count Witte in order to seernor,
cure the radicals' support for the gov
ernment. The liberals say that the
"Black Hundre d" have organized a
massacre to prevent the carrying out
of reforms.
Clash with the Czar.
An influential Bussian who was pres
ent at the conference at Peterhof
palace informs the correspondent of
The Journal that Count Witte in
sisted yesterday that the ministers of
waT and of the navy and the presi
dent of the national defense, hitherto
under control of Grand Duke Nicholas,
must submit to the premier, like the
other cabinet ministers. He wanted
also to discharge twenty-five governors.
The czar refused these demands, where
upon Count Witte tendered his resigna
tion, which was not accepted. Rumors
of Witte's fall caused a panic on the
stock exchange.
Witte Looks Ghastly.
The correspondent of The Jour
a 1 accompanied a delegation of Jew
ish bankers that called upon Count
Witte. The premier looked ghastly.
He denied the truth of the rumors of
massacre and assured the delegation
that every means would be put forth
for the protection of life.
The situation of the Jews is critical.
One feature of the antisemitic aggita
tion thruout the empire is the accusa
tion that the Jews want to overthrow
the monarchy and elect a president of
their own race.
Poles Against Jews.
The Poles, who hitherto have been
with the Jews, aTe now against them
because they declare that the Jews pre
fer Bussian rule as opposed to Poland'3
autonomy. Influential Russian liberal,
deserting the Jewish constitutionalists,
have formed a christian democratic
The appointment of Grand Duke
Nicholas to succeed Grand Duke Vladi
mir is meeting with opposition. Count
Witte's newspapers argue that effi
ciency of administration is incompat
ible with the holding of office by grand
dukes, as it hampers control.
By clever handling of the press op
position to Count Witte has been prac
tically stopped. The newspapers are
filled with telegraphic extracts from
American and European editorials fa
vorable to the premier.

Greatest Scandal in History
of Badgerdom's Official
Life is Feared.
ADISON, Wis., Nov. 11 The
greatest graft scandal in the
history of Wisconsin official
life is likely to be brought out
charges which have been niade against
the University of Wisconsin authori
ties. The nature of the charges is con
cealed, tho it is known that written
charges have been filed with the gov
who is holding them secret.
The Graft Scandal.
Briefly stated, the condition of afso
fairs seems to be this:
Professor G. W. Knapp made some
unknown charges against his superiors.
He was at once given indefinite leave
of absence, with the understanding
that this was to become permanent. Ar
chitect Jennings, involved in the
charge, Tesigned his position in charge
of the erection of important new uni
versity buildings.
After the first announcement that
Knapp was likely to be dismissed, it
developed that he had filed a long
document with the governor and given
the authorities until Nov. 20 to
This is regarded as an ultimatum. If
he is not assured of at least the reten
tion of his present position, something
is likely to drop.
The "university and state authorities
I declare that the affair is a tempest in
a teapot, but Professor Knapp, Archi
tect Jennings and Secretary Riley of
the state board of regents have all re
tained attorneys to look out for their
interests in the events of future sen
sational developments.
Disapproves Contract.
The governor has refused to approve
a contract for certain new university
buildings. This has developed the fact
that a Janesville firm which tele
graphed that mailed bids on the new
structures had received back its bidvania,
unopened, tho an arrangement had been
made with the university regents for
its reception. These contractors have
also secured attorneys.
The firm which did secure the con
tract, tho not accused of having been
involved in any improper deal to secure
the contract, has also retained attor
neys. The regents have announced that
only Dean Henry is exonerated. What
the charges are they and others inter
ested refuse to say.
Mounts by Municipal Own
ership .Campaign to Com
manding Height.
Certain to Head a Radical
Ticket in Next Race for
the Presidency.
By W. W. Jermane.
Bryan as a Prophet.
The result of the municipal campaign
in Chicago lasl spring was the first
reliable intimation the country -had that
municipal ownership, with pro-radical
tendencies, had taken a strong hold on
the imagination of the laboring masses.
It was shortly after the result in Chi
cago had become known that W. J.
Bryan, with an instinct whose iner
rancy was not appreciated at the time,
announced that he proposed during the
to go abroad for a more careful
study of the public ownership question.
Bryan had sailed from San Francisco be
fore the American public realized that
his quest was a practical one, for Hearst
had not at that time become a menace
to the Tammany organization in New
York, and there was no intimation that
the great metropolis was to duplicate",
far as the moral effect is concerned,
the earlier -result in Chicago.
Spread of "M. O." Idea.*
Now, both the leading cities of the
country have put 'themselves on record
unmistakably as having pronounced
public ownership opinions, and no sane
man questions that the sentiments con
trolling those cities also control urban
populations from one end of the country
to the other. This urban vote has been
largely a democratic votetwo-thirds
of it has been unquestionably demo
cratic, and perhaps the ratio is greater
thatand so, with a public owner
ship presidential ticket, headed by
Hearst, or it may be by Bryan himself,
the democrats would be struck a mortal
blow in their strongholds, the cities,
and the republicans would be at the
same time so weakened as to give a
popular interest to the campaign com
parably only to the interest existing
in 1896.
Graft Breaking Up Parties.
This threatened breaking up of the
old parties and rise of radicalism has
been due to several causes. One is the
general knowledge thruout the country
now that graft exists in both these
parties to a criminal degree. Tam
many Odell the Weaver campaign in
Philadelphia the situation in Pennsyl
growing out of the failure of the
Enterprise National bank the expos
ures in Ohio, culminating with Secre
tary Taft's sensational declaration that
if voting this year he would vote
against the Gox machine in Cincinnati,

brought to light the plans of the Gor
man machine to disfranchise thousands
of republican voters of foreign parent
age in Baltimore, under cover of a con-

the ruin wrought to Tam
many and to the regular re
publican organization in New York city,
as the result of the late municipal cam
paign towers the form of W. R. Hearst
as a potent presidential probability,
dominating the situation. His nomina
tion on a radical presidential ticket,
with public ownership of quasi-public
utilities as its main issue, it is believed,
can now no more be prevented than
Bryan's nomination in 1896 could have
been prevented after he had made his
"crown of thorns and cross of gold"
speech to the Chicago convention.
Hearst's nomination on such a ticket
will draw heavily upon both the old
parties, more especially in the urban
districts, and the line of cleavage be
tween frightened conservatism on the
one hand and rampant radicalism on the
other will probably make the 1908 cam
paign a duplicate in many essential ea
tures of the campaign of 1896.
