Antonova faced her accusers In the largest theater of the city as several thousand women looked on pityingly. Tempering her condemnation of the crime with true feminine sympathy, the prosecutor declared that while society would re gard the offense as a brutal one, the prisoner’* act was attributable to the conditions of misery and oppression under which the working classes were forced to live during the czarlst regime. This, she said, had forced from the heart of the woman all human feel ings. The judge, moved by the leni ency of the prosecutor and the com passion of the weeping audience, modified the usual punishment for the death of another so that Mme. Anto nova was sentenced to serve only sixteen months in prison. The majority of factories In Shang hai and other Chinese cities are Brit ish owned, —— ■■ ■! ■ TIBET TOUR PLANNED.
