The railway across the Caucasus from
Batoum, the port on the Black sea, to
Baku, on the Caspian, is 358 miles long,
although from the map the strip of territory'
between those two bodies of water
does not seem half so wide.
The track follows the foothills of the
Caucasus mountains through the ancient
state of Georgia, on the southern and
Asiatic side. Snow-capped peaks are in
sight from the car windows nearly everyday
in the year during half the journey.
The highest point reached by the train is
3,027 feet, where it passes through a long
The railway was built by the Russian
government for military purposes about
forty years ago, and fc> still under military
control and managed by military
methods. All the material and rolling
stock comes from the gov|rnment shops
at Moscow. The engines burn oil for
* fuel, and the tracks are five feet gauge.
A squad of soldiers accompanies every
train and occupies a car immediately
back of the locomotive, to guard the
mails ^pd the express car, which often
contains treasure and alwrays many valuable
packages This guard has been
maintained ever since the revolution,
which is not entirely over here, from ^11
Martial Law Prevails.
The functions of the civil governor general
have been practically suspended for
two years. The military commander exercises
autocratic authority, and martial
law is enforced according to his judgment.
That is. all crimes which he construes
aa political are tried by military courts
and punished by the military authorities,
who have practically filled the prisons
with political offenders. Other crimes
against person and property which, in
the judgment of the military authorities,
have no political significance are committed
to the jurisdiction of the civil
Ntf part of Russia suffered so much
from Are and sword during the revolution
a few years ago as the Caucasus.

and horrors committed on both
The terrible prison in the citadel that
crowns a hill overlooking the city of
TiAlis is stLll crowded with patriots whose
zeal outran their Judgment, and whose
ideas of civil liberty are somewhat
broader and more radical than we are
accustomed to conceae.
* Russian anarchists who throw bombs
at their rulers and blow up barracks
filled with sleeping soldiers in the name
of God and liberty are not quite sane
That is the most charitable way to regard
the awful crimes that have been
committed in. the name of patriotism ani
The leaders of the insurrection here
look upon the French revolution as
sacred history. The province of the
. Caucasus has been the scene of many
aimilar occurrences recently. Nor is the
trouble over yet.
Trouble Not Over.
About the end of February a Georgian
prince named Dadish Keliarri, living near
the city of Kutais, the first town of
importance on the railway, had an offer
for a large tract of land which he had
been trying to sell for several years.
There was no secret about it, and the
buyers were Russians of high commercial
standing and eminent respectability.
After the sale became known the prince
received an anonymous letter informing
him that the people of Georgia did i.ot
* approve of selling property to Russians,
and that the land in question belonged
to the tenants who till it. instead of
himself, who inherited it from his ancestors.
The usual socialistic arguments
in such cases were recited. He was no
tiAed that the transaction would not be
The prince took no notice 'of the communication.
He probably threw it in the
waste basket, as anonymous letters are
circulated quite freely in this part of the
the papers were made out he received
a second letter of similar import,
telLng him that some patriotic soviet/
bad forhidden the sale of the prooerty
to any one but the tenants who qow
occupy it. and that a violation of its
orders would be punished by death.
This letter was preserved, although It
did not stop the sale. On the day the
deeds were signed the prince was shot
dead on the thresnold of the bank
where he had just deposited the purchase
Prince Kiplani Slain.
Prince Kipiani, another Georgian noble,
had a similar experience a&er the
aale of a piece of property in the same
locajity. He. too. suffered the death penalty
for selling a portion of his estate
to strangers instead of turning it over
to his tenants.
No one has yet been punished for these
acts of barbarism, but they have been
generally approved by the peasants and
the masses of the Georgian population, on
the theory that Russians have no rights
? in this province, and that the highest
duties of patriotism are to burn and kill
wherever any attempt is made to alienate
the sacred soil by a Georgian to the
ownership of an invader.
The land troubles in Ireland have not
been a circumstance to those that have
# occurred here The same fanatical spirit
has been < arried into education and reiigion,
as well as Into business.
The Georgian church is a branch of
the orthodox Greek, with some minor and
technical differences in theology and ritual
1 ha%e never been able to learn
Just what they are. and. indeed no
i one seems to know.
But the Georgians refuse to commune
with the Russians, and would burn the
Russian churches and massacre their
priests if they could accomplish anything
tiierebj They are simply fanatical
in racial prejudice.
Russians Also to Blamo.
The Russians are not altogether bla/neless
for this terrible situation, becausr
they have attempted to force the Russian
ritual and Russian priests upon unwllllni
parishes in many places, and have in.
listed that the Russian language Instead
Of the Georgian language shall be used
in the schools. Therefore, the children
are growing up in ignorance.
No Georgian parent will allow his chll
dren to attend a school where the Russian
language is taught. He would probably
suffer ostracism IT not a worse punishment
if he did.
There are said to be seventy different
races represented in the city of Tiflls. Th?
guide book says that seventy different
languages are spoken upon Its streets
If tnat is true, it is probably the most
cosmopolitan city in the world.
' You can easily believe the statement
t after seeing the wondrous variety of cos
turtles and features of the people wh<
wasr them. There Is no unity amonfl
these seventy races. There is no common
national feeling. There is notbini
upon which patriotism could be based.
The Georgians hate the Russians. Th?
Tartars bale the Armenians- The Per
I sians hate the Armenians. The Kurds
and the Armenians are always fighting.
, Indeed, no two of the many races repI
resented here are on amicable terms, ex
cept the Germans, who mind their owi
business and are friendly to everybody.
No Loyalty to Czar.
There is no loyalty to the czar and
nothing to inspire it. The administration
of the Caucasus is purely military
The first thought in the Russian mind is
conquest. After that there is no othei
thought but to retain possession.
Instead of planting trees and encouraging
the people to improve their methods
of agriculture, the Russians build fort
, resses. instead of building schoolhouses
they build barracks.
The railway across the" province and
that which runs down to the Persian border
were primarily for the movement ol
troops. Military supplies are given preference
over all other freight. The famous
military road through the Dariel pass
the only means of crossing the Caucasus
mountains, oost the government betweer
twenty and twenty-five million dollars
and is for military purposes rather thar
for commerce.
At least 130,000 soldiers are kept on a
war footing in this province alone. Thai
number of men are not only withdrawr
from the fields and factories, and the
number of producers thus reduced, bin
the peasants, who work the farms, thf
, shopkeepers and other peaceful members
of the population are taxed to pay foi
their support, which is a continual grievance
that cannot be removed.
If the money that is spent upoh military
purposes could be' devoted to material
development and the education of the
people the army would not be needed.
Rusglajis Hold All Offices.
All the influential and lucrative offices
are held by imported Russians, although
clerkships and other minor positions are
given to natives. The province of the Caucasus,
which is north of the mountain
range, and that of the Trans-Caucasus,
which is south, are governed by autocrats
who are directly responsible to the czar
and to him alone. Several members ol
the Imperial family have occupied the
posts which have been cohaidered desirable
until the revolution.
At the same time it should be explained
that the Russians are here by invitation.
More than a hundred years ago the Georgian
king voluntarily appealed for the
protection of Alexander I against the aggressiveness
of Aga Mohammed Kahn,
a Persian invader, and in 18fti he signed a
treaty of practical annexation to Russia
with Alexander I.
There is a fine large historical picture
by a Georgian artist in the military
museum here representing the enthusiasm
manifested by the people when the
Russian troops entered .the city of Tiflis
and the Russian governor assugied authority.
Journey Across Caucasus.
But I started to tell about the railway
journey across the Caucasus, which is
rather .interesting. The cars are large,
the seats are wide, low and comfortable,
and the flrst-class coaches are arranged
so that they can be made up into
beds at night like those in the ordinary
European sleeping cars, altnough every
passenger who desires to utilize them in
that way must bring his own sheets,
blankets and pillow.
The cars are divided into compartments.
The only objection is that there is but
one small high window in each compartment,
so that it is impossible to see the
country you are passing through unless
you stand up or go into the corridor,
which is lighted in a similar way.
The first-class passengers, except ourselves,
were all military officers and their
families. They all wore their uniforms
and swords, high topped boots and heavy
overcoats, notwithstanding tne hoi
The first third of the distance from
Baioum to Titiis is a level plain, called a
?l?nn. in Russia. Which IS thoroughly
cultivated, but the farm hotnts are
wretched wooden hovels. We saw the
women working In the helds?which they
have to do to keep the pot boiling, for
the men are in the army drawing no
wages and producing nothing.
Timber and Cattle.
There is a good deal of timber. We saw
several droves of scraggy-looking cattle
on jthe hillsides. Most of the cultivated
land is planted to wheat and other
At every stopping place a portion of the
platform, at the end of the station house,
is surrendered to vegetable sellers, usually
old women who have onions, lettuce,
radishes and other garden truck piled up
on little trays around them, and seemed
to be doing a good business. Boys peddled
baskets of strawberries under the windows
of the cars. They were swindles, ol
course. When you had eaten off a couple
of layers you found nothing but leaves.
They offered you cherries in an attractive
form, the stems of the fruit ingeniously
Inserted through slits In a stick,
making long red wands, some of them
three feet loag. There are refreshment
stands at every station, at which tea,
sausages, sandwiches, bread, cheese and
other edibles are offered, and the train
makep long stops, so that-the passengers
have plenty of time to sip tea or drink
a glass of vodka and to egercise on the
platform. - At
every station tanks of cold watei
and samovars of hot water are provided
free for third-class passengers, who can
help themselvew and make their own tea,

long stops, it took us thirteen hours tc

Declaration of Independence It Read
by "George Washington.''
TRENTON. N. J.. July 4?A sane
Fourth of July is being observed by the
inmates of the New Jersey State Hospital
for the Insane here. The Promiscuous
use of fireworks has been
prohibited, and the lunatics have forgotten
their "bugs" for the day and
are being as sane as possible, so that
the attendants as well as the patients
may enjoy themselves.
The attendants arranged a central
celebration ip which all participated
This event was preceded by a parade
about the grounds. The inmates wore
new suits of linen. Peter Parker a
north New Jersey inmate, who believes
that he is George Washington, and that
the other patients are patriots, was
. permitted to read the Declaration of Independence.
Another patient who became
insane as a result of injuries
suffered when in charge of a pyrotechnic
display, will be permitted to set off the
fireworks, under the supervision of the
