II RUSSIAN REFUGEE
Ivan Norodny Now in New York
City. _
HEADED CRONSTADT MUTINY
Was Minister of Domestic Affairs in
Baltic Provinces.
ASSASSIN OF DUKE SERGIUS
Lieut. Schmidt?His Execution Graph
ically Described?Last Words for
Russia and Revolution.
A genuine political refugee with tlie hall
mark of authenticity on his person and a
price on his head Is a sort of a rara avis
In this enlightened land. But there is one
located in New Tork city just now, and the
good people of Gotham have taken him to
their hearts. ,
The refugee Is a Russian and his name is
Ivan Norodny. lie was head and front of
the attempted mutiny in Cronstadt last
year and was minister of domestic affairs
in the abortive provisional government in
the Baltic provinces. The New York Sun
tells all about Ivan and his stunts.
Mr. Norodny, who, besides his Ian, has
a long line of consonantical jaw-breakers,
tells of the hanging of the assassin of the
Grand Dufte Sergius and the execution of
Lieut. Schmidt of the Russian navy.
A Price on His Head.
Ivan escaped from Russia in the dis
guise of an army surgeon early in January
with a 30,000 ruble price on his head. That
price has been collected, by the way, and
Norodny doesn't know whether he has a
price ori his head now or not. There Is a
game in it, such a game as should per
suade any one that thfe Russian people are
ready for self-government.
About as soon as Norodny got away a
man bearing a remarkable resemblance to
his published description appeared In St.
Petersburg and daunted himself l>efore the
police. Ilim the head con man pointed out
to the police as Norodny. He was arrested
at once and damning proofs were found on
his person. He protested loudly that he
was not Norodny. but could bring no wit
nesses to prove It.
The case seemed so strong that the au
thor ties paid the full amount of the re
ward and the head raker walked out of
sight of the police. Three days later the
nssistant faker brought absolute proofs to
show that he was not Norodny. There was
no proof that he connived with the "head
con man in putting up that game?still,
proof is not really needed in Russia Just
now At any rate, the prisoner walked out
a free man. Jiiked oft somewhere and div
vied up. If. there'ore, you see a Russian
policeman coming, don't turn Norodny over
to him. You m'ght not get your money.
Norodny. a little Russian and an "intel
lectual," told again the story of the trouble
on the Black sea and the Baltic. He Is Just
in receipt or a letter from an attorney
named R'asner, who was an eyewitness to
the execution of L4eut. Schmidt of the Rus
sian navy on March 19 at Otchakoff.
Norodny has been studying English for
only three weeks. Being a Russian, he lias
caught nearly the whole vocabulary of the
language, but his proaunciation is Karnay
giesk and he gets twisted on Idioms. His
translation of the letter was Tree, there
fore. Th's Is the substance of It:
The Shooting of Schmidt.
"I saw the assassin of Grand Duke Ser
gius hanged; yet that was as nothing for
horror with this shooting. My pen refuses
to move when I think of It.
"At 4 o'clock In the morning he -Was led
out on a little island, together with the
three common sailors who died with him
His struggle to the end was to save the
three sailors On the way to the Island he
begged for permission to send a telegram to
St. Petersburg taking all the responsibility
and exonerating the sailors. The admiral
refused that. 'Then let me at least die like
an officer,* he said. 'Do not blind or bind
me."
"They granted that, and decided that
since lie could see and the others would
die blind, he should be shot first. Schmidt
was placed with his back against the hill.
Thirty men of his own command, many of
whom loved him. were told oft to kill him.
It was being done for an example, and the
autocracy spared no horror.
"Now the admiral feared that these men
might not shoot at the word, and behind
them he stationed 200 men, with loaded
rifles trained on every man of the firing
squad. Their orders were to shoot Instantly
any man who failed to fire. Schmidt did
not know this; had he, I am certain that
he would have begged them to fire if they
loved him, since his end was inevitable.
"Schmidt walked llke'a soldier to the spot.
All the way he st>oke Incessantly to the sol
diers who walked to right and left, exhort
ing them to rise for humanity. A priest ap
proached him.
" 'No,' said Schmidt kindly, 'I believe in
no God except the good of humanity.' Then
he stepped Into his place.
'The officer had drawn his sword, when
Schmidt called out:
" 'Wait! I want a glass of water! You
will not refuse that to a dying man!' It
seemed a strange request, but they granted
It. Hardly were the water bearers out of
range when he raised the glass high above
his head:
" To the people of Russia!' he cried. 'To
the Russian people and the social revolu
tion!*
His Last Words.
"Those were his last words, for the officer,
seeing it all now, cried:
" 'Fire!'
"Only sixteen of the thirty men in the
firing squad fired. The rest lowered their
pieces, overcome by the sublimity of this
pledge in the face of death.
"The admiral kept his word. The sixteen
who had fired were ordered rapidly out of
line; the fourteen who failed were kept lu
place, their backs toward their death.
" 'Fire!' said the officer of the 200 men
behind.
"Probably not more than half of them
obeyed, but It was enough. The fourteen
fell as one man. Then they proceeded with
the butchery of the three condemned sol
diers.
"The men had fired for the most part at
the breast of Schmidt, and not at his head.
He had dropped the glass as he fell, but
his right arm was still raised high over
his head In a toast to the Russian people.
"What a day was this, comrade, in the
history.of Russia.'"
Riasner was attorney for Schmidt during
his trial, and was admitted to the execu
tion on that account.
"ft appears." said Novodny, "that the
American people are under the impression
that Schmidt was leader in the Knktz Po
tcmkln affair. That is not true. He was
never near that trouble. At the time he
had two months leave and was working
among the Baltic provinces.
"The general mutiny, led by Schmidt, was
under preparation, and the ships were all
to be captured at once, when friction arose
between the officers and men of the Po
temkln and that mutiny was on. By keep
ing the men In ignorance by various devices
they held things safe. Had Schmidt been
on the Potemkln she would never have fail
ed, for all she needed was a guiding hand.
Schmidt was arrested later.
Th?. Mutiny at Cronstadt.
"I led 40,000 men for one night In the
mutiny at Cronstadt. This la how it hap
pened:
"We had the 40,000 men In garrison there
honeycombed with revolution. There were
many groups in every company and a leader
In every group. It was tfll ready, but we
wanted to teat it, and the imprisonment of
sixteen sailors in the fortrestt there was a
great opportunity?for there was great In
dignation over it.
"The movement was made at 2 o'clock
la the morning. That night moat of the
officers were away drinking. In the cos
tume of a general?for Russian peasant sol
diers will obey only a uniform?I passed
the friendly sentries, took my stand on
the parade ground and ordered th?- signal?

telling them that we were going to rescue
their comrades, after which we would let
them go back to barracks. In an orderly
manner a picked corps marched down to
the fortress, demanded the keys and got
their comrades. We marched them Sack j
and sent them to bed. Most of the officers
and the town authorities ran away and
stayed away until It blew over.
"But the government withdrew the
troops; and we proclaimed at once the
republic In the Baltic provinces. Do you
know what that means? The first republic
proclaimed on Russian soli?our Independ- j
ence day. It lasted three weeks. We hope- I
fully made all preparations to govern?we ,
even seized the mint and got out a currency, j
Then came the Cossacks?there is no mak- j
Ing revolution with them. They work for |
their hire. They killed about as they
pleased.
Slaughter That He Saw. |
"I was disguised In the uniform of a re
tired army surgeon, and the chase got hot |
at times. Of the slaughter I will tell you
only what I saw.
"A schoolmaster, not guilty, as I knew,
of assisting the new republic, but guilty
of writing liberal articles, was tide to a
telegraph pole, with two other men?also
merely liberals. All were married and
had children. Their families were forced
to stand under a Cossack guard and watch
the execution?when the women tried to
turn .away the Cossacks, under orders,
turned their eyes toward the scene.
"I saw that?I, to whom Just such a thing
might happen If they found me. So at
last I bribed my way across the border to
Germany.
"We are the military party. We are for
an organized, armed revolution. When,
next summer, we hoist the standard and
part of the army comes to Join us, the social
democrats will come, too. The duma Is
cut and dried. The government sent out
to each district the list of men they wanted
elected?and they were elected.
"I cannot speak for the rest of the coun
try, but in .Little Russia we have forty per
cent of the officers and sixty per cent of
the men. I make two exceptions, though.
The crack guards, officers and men, are all
loyal; and the Cossack privates are too
wild and ignorant to be taught revolution.
They slaughter where they are paid; they
are now the hangmen of Russia."
GOV. PATTISON'S ILLNESS.
Believed to Be Afflicted With Tumor
?Operation Likely.
Though the physicians al Columbus, Ohio,
say that the object in taking the governor
to Christ HospitaJ at Cincinnati Is merely
to rest for the remaining part of the Jour
ney to Mllford, It is believed that the inten
tion is to perform an operation upon him.
If such an operation la necessary, it must
be done quickly to have the desired eflCtMit.
It Is now known that the principal cause
of trouble In the governor's case is the
prostate gland. There Is a growth there
that the physicians have regarded as sar
comatous; that is. a malignant tumor.
Before leaving for Cincinnati, Dr. O. P.
Holt said in regard to this;
"Gov. Patlisori is suffering, amon;? other
things, from an abnormal growth ori the
prostate gland. There are Indie ations that
this may be a cancerous growth. Thi.) will
?be determined at the hospital at Cincinnati.
It may be that an operation wiil be neces
sary. If tLe examination reveals to a cer
tainty that the governor Is afflicted with a
malignant growth, he will be operated upon
Immediately. No one can preuict the out
come of such an operation."
A dispatch from Cincinnati says; Gov.
Pattison's condition was satisfactory
today. The noon bulletin Issued by the doc
tors follows:
"Gov. Paulson passed a very comfortable
night His condition is Just about the
same as yesterday. Pulse. 90; temperature,
normal; respiration, 20."
ORDER RESCINDED IN PA&T.
Department Permits Strike Commit
tee's Postals to Go Through Malls.
Third Assistant Postmaster General Ed
win C:- Madden has written a letter to Mr.
T. C. Parsons, chairman of the printers'
eight-hour committee. In reference to a
large number of post cards which were sent
out to business houses by the Ladles' Aux
iliary to Columbia Typographical Union.
These cards were rejected by station G of
this city because It was said they were
larger than the size permitted by law to go
through the malls for one cent each. The
regulation size is three and nine-sixteenths
Inches by five and nine-sixteenths inches.
Those sent out by the ladies were but one
eighth of an inch longer than the legal size.
Mr. Madden In his communication Bays
he has decided to let this lot go through the
malls, but suggests that the legal size be
conformed to in the future.
Mr. T. C. Parsons, chairman of the eight
hour committee of the printers, replying to
the statement of President Byron S. Adams
of the Typothetae of Washington, as pub
lished in The Star yesterday, said this aft
ernoon ;
"When the president of the typothetae
said that only one-third of the printers ot
the country are members of the Typogra
phical Union, according to the 1900 census,
claiming the remaining two-thirds to be
non-union, he unthoughtediy overlooked the
fact that the census Includes every man,
woman and child setting type in the coun
try', and as many thousands of them are
to be found in the multitude of small towns
and villages where there are no unions the
opportunity for affiliating is lacking.
"It is only fair to these country printers
to say that about SX) per cent of them are
In full sympathy with the principles of the
Typographical Union and Join it at the first
opportunity.
"The great number of letters received by
our members from proprietors of typoth
etae offices holding out flattering induce
ments to them to desert our ranks and act
as strikebreakers is very good evidence that
the typothetae thinks the skill of the print
er's art is represented in the union."
WON BY CENTRAL.
Debate With Western High School
Yesterday Afternoon.
"That the federal government should su
pervise and control insurance companies
transacting an interstate and international
business" was the proposition under dispu
tation yesterday afternoon at the Central
High School in the interhigh school debate
between Western and Central. The contest
was Judged by Mr. Charles Lyman. Mr. E.
D. Shaw and Dr. Teunis Hamlin and the
decision was given to the Central, which
upheld the negative.
Chairman C. W. A. Veditz of the George
Washington University, called the session
to order, a large audience of students,
teachers, local und visiting, and friends and
parents, being gathered to hear the argu
ments.
The rostrum was tastefully decorated
with the red and white of Western, and
the diirk blue and white of Central. A
bust of Minerva stood on Western's slue
and a similar bust of Augustus On Cen
tral's; In the Impartial middle of the stage
stood a winged victory.
The Western was represented by Messrs.
T. H. Farrlngton, D. A. Baer and George
L. Harrison, who read as alternate, the

the young ladles of Central senior class, in
white dresses and bedecked with red rib
bons, entertained the teams, the visiting
teachers, the chairman and the Judges in
the lady teachers' room, which also in hon
or of Western, was gaily decorated in red

tween Eastern and Western having been
won by Eastern. The championship debate
between Central and Eastern will be held

VIEWS OF MR. STUART
SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS

pioyea of the Board of Budcatlon of t^
District, that on and after July .

the school, of the District beyond the
second grade shall be given a whole day
session, the superintendent of schools Mr.
A. T. Stuart, gave to a Star repor r
general explanation of the sltuaton' ,.ld
"Schools." Mr. Stuart said. whlch wo^
be affected by the enactment of the law
are those of the third and fourth grades.
There are at present forty-eight such half
day schools in the District. These are
scattered throughout the system In the
thirteen divisions, the greatest """"ber be
ing found in the fifth division. or Oeorge
town. and the thirteenth, or colored, divi
sion of South Washington. . >,?lf dav
"Only four of the forty-elgT>t half-day
ofhonls are of the fourth grade. All tho
remainder are of the third ?rarle- arl^.ha,rf
about evenly divided hf^een the^hlte
and colored schools. The four halt a y
^s3Wn^onh\nTthe completion of the new
situation.
Finding Boom Is the Problem.
"The whole problem." Mr. Stuart added,
"Is one of finding rooms. In Georgetown
also the completion of the Anthony Hyde
Hulldlne will free rooms In that section.
Both the Cordozo and the Hyde buildings
will be ready early In the fall and there
is an unused room at present In both the
Koss and the Blow schools, recently dedl
cated. The building of the "ew unton
station has caused so many '*?il'fa ,t1.
move l'rom that quarter that the enroll
ment of the Gales School has greatly de
creased. but with everything 1"J?
consideration It will be Impossible, *|th
the present school facilities, to provide
space for these schools. Rooms will have
to be rented and ifunds supplied. t?
Mr. Stuart estimates that at least twenty
four rooms will be needed, and he stated
that the law will affect at least l,?toP"Pj'9
uDon the rolls at present. Upon being re
minded of the probable passage of the com
Dulsory education bill. Mr. Stuart express
ed liimself as enable to tell what the re
SU"A3ntogwhat 'the passage of ? compulsory
lit**. li?v -o- - - -
education bill may mean Is amattero,
niire speculation." he said. The police
census gave the number of children on the
streets as 71L The Civic Center orgaTiiza
?tonplaced them at 7.0O0. The truth must
?be somewhat between these numbers and.
I am heartily in favor of compulsory
educaUon. I have said the only thing to
do will be to pass the law and then take
care of the children that come In. It is
good to have these matters a part of the
organic law.
Two Requirements.
"These two requirements will certainly
demand more rooms, more teachers 'and
larger equipment.
"With respect to the other features of the
new bill Mr. Stuart said he hardly cared
to express himself, as he had not seen a
copy of the revised bill. , ,
The enlargement of the board of educa
tion to nine members, three of whom are
to be colftred and three women, to serve
only three years Instead of seven, and
without pay. caused little comment today
among teachers. Every one seemed pleased
with the liberal increases in the salary
'lue exact relations of the changes in su
pervision by which the colored schools are
placed under the sole charge of the assist
ant superintendent and the director of high
school given charge over the academic and
scientific branches in the McKluley Man
ual Training, are not clear as yet in the
minds of school officials, but are under
stood to meet with general approval.
Mr. Stuart seemed to be interested P&r"
tlcularlv in the exact amount of definition
which the bill makes of the duties of the
hoard the superintendent and the new
officer the superintendent of buildings and
supplies But the impression crtated was
that the concentration of the educational
features upon the superintendent is a dis
tinct gain. _

THE M. P. CONFERENCE
REPORTS ON UNION PLAN AT
BALTIMORE YESTERDAY.
The proposed union of the Methodist
Protestant, Congregational and United
Brethren churches was the leading ques
tion which came before yesterday's session
Of the Maryland conference of the Metho
dist Protestaht Church In Baltimore. Th?
body did not commit Itself on the question.
Bev. Dr. T. H. Lewis, president of W est- -
ern Maryland College, who was the com- ,
missloner appointed by last year's confer
ence to attend the gathering of the three
denominations at Dayton, Ohio, in Febru
ary, made a thorough report of the prog
ress made by the gathering. He laid par
ticular emphasis on the a'm and scope of
the proposed union and railed attention to
erroneous inferences which had been drawn.
Dr. Lewis' Report.
"It is proper that I should say," Dr.
Lewis began, "that the developments of j
the few months immediately preceding the |
meeting of the council convinced me that
| organic union of the three churches was out
of the question."
The proposal that a constitution be adopt
ed, Dr. Lewis said, brought the question ot
1 organic unity to the rront from the tlrst.
In the last hour of the conference, he said,
the committee appointed ror the purpose re
ported that it was Inexpedient to adopt a
constitution.
The definite work of the conference con
sisted. said Dr. Lewis, in the appointment
of committees to consider the questions ol
doctrine, polity and vested rights. The
work of the committee on doctrine, he said,
proved to be easiest, "owing to the willing
