Martial Lair to be Declared Situation
' Throughout Poland Again Very Sert
oli Lodz in Turmoil for Last Three
. Day Strike in Warsaw Commenced
and Disorders Are Looked For Daring;
the Trial of Man Who Threw Bomb
at Police Station March 26.
Lodz, Russian Poland, June 23 -
Troops have stormed the barricades
erected In the streets by the strikers.
Fifty persons have been killed and 200
wounded. Martial law will be declared
1 Since early this morning this city
has been In a state of panic. The strike
is general at all the factories and the
shops are closed. Barricades were
erected at many points.
Rifle volleys and revolver shots are
heard continuously.,
Many persons have been kllfied or
wounded but it is impossible at pres
ent to ascertain the number with any
exactitude owing to the general char
actetr of the disturbances.
The mob sacked a number of liquor
stores and broke the street lamps. -Street
railroad traffic is interrupted.
' St. Petersburg, June 24. 3:15 a. m
According to advices received here the
situation in Poland is again exceed
ingly serious. .. Censored dispatches
from Lodz, though giving few details.
Indicate that fierce street fighting was
in progress yesterday - between : the
military and the striking workmen, who
barricaded the thoroughfares in vari
ous quarters of the city and offered re
sistance which the troops met with vol
leys. The list of the' dead and wound
ed presumably is heavy but not even
an estimate has been received here.
Russian correspondents telegraphingl
that the streets are entirely in the
hands of the military and the mob and
that it is unsafe to venture out to ob
tain details, v ; ,
It is not known whether the fighting
was continued late night, but it is fear
ed that order can be restored only at
heavy sacrifice. , .
Lodz has been in a turmoil for 'the
past three days. The strike, which
.embraces 60,000 Worker, appears to
ihave entirely lost its economic nature,
anfl la now a vast Political tnanifesta-
' tion. All forms of public business ac
tivity have been .suspended, the peace
ful inhabitant remaining indoors . for
fear of their lives.: The political zeal
of the manif estants ; has become in
flamed by intoxicants from the vodka
shops, which were-broken into and pil
laged yesterday. At Warsaw a, strike
' lhas commenced and disorders are look
ed for during the trial of Okrjey, who
threw a, bomb at a police station March
26, and will probably result in other
bomb outrages. A man was arrested'
yesterday morning armed with a bomb,
which was evidently intended to be
used in the court during the trial yes
terday. In the meantime the government has
publicly disclaimed all designs as to the
Kussiflcation of Poland, the committee
of ministers in its deliberations on the
school question, which were published;
yesterday, saying: "The committee
considers it absolutely necessary to
establish the fact that the Russiflcation
and denationalism of the Poles cannot
possibly lie within the intent of the
Russian government. The aim must
rather be the amalgamation of the Pol
ish government with the Russian ad
ministration, and the welding of the
Polish people with the general body
politic of Russia by peaceful ties, which
will preserve Polish individuality, cul
ture and language. i
Looks as if Chicago Strike Will Soon

Chicago, June 23. All the obstacles
which have prevented an ending of the
teamsters': strike : to-night appear to
have been eliminated, and indications
are that unless something unforeseen
(develops the strike will cease within a
short time. . ; At a meeting to-day be
tween a committee of strikers and J. V.
Farwell, jr., for the Employers' associ
ation, the question of a conspicuous
: display of the union button, which has
been opposed by : the employers, was
settled. This question is to be left to
the employers individually, the associ
ation agreeing to withdraw its demand
for the elimination of the union em
blem. The details of settlement must
yet be agreed to by the general com
mittee of the strikers and finally sub
mitted to a vote of all strikers. Presi
dent Shea says he is satisfied with the
present terms of settlement.

HI. Job.
Honolulu, June 23. Governor Carter
mailed his resignation to President
Roosevelt on Wednesday. He will
leave on June 28 from Washington to
discuss the matter of his retirement
from the governorship. He has been
in cable correspondence with the pres
ident regarding it, and . has received
permission to go to Washington for a
personal Interview.
Governor Carter says he has urged)
President Roosevelt to, accept his res
ignation and appoint a successor. Hia
action, it is declared, was not due to
the election of E. M. Brown as high
sheriff, but had been under considera
tion for some time. It was first writ
ten on June 6, but was withheld on the
advice of frUnds,. who asked him not
to send it to Washington.
The resignation Was the culmination
of a long series of events which led
Governor Carter to the conclusion that
he could be of more service to the ter
ritory of Hawaii outside the guberna
torial chair than in that position.

Ailsa Gives Judges a Scare at the Start
by a Clever Trick That is Common in
America Emperor William Sails the
-Meteor III. to Victory Has Ambas
sador Tower and TJther Guests Help
Him in Trimming Ship.
Imperial Yacht Club, Kiel, Germany,
June 23 American yachts, either
American owned or American built,
made a fine showing to-day. There
were four of them and each won the
race in her class.
: R. W. Goelet's Swan made a bad
start and was last over the line but she
went straight through the fleet, gave a
beautiful example of seamanship' and
got right up to windward and return
ing away from the whole' fleet, finished
4 minutes ' 45 seconds ahead of the
Thyra,; which was second, the Capri
came in third. Time, 4:15:45. Course,
22 miles. A good strong breeze was
blowing and most of the boats put in
at least one reef. ; '
Prince Henry of Prussia was to have
sailed the Orion, with Allison V. Ar
mour on board, over a 33-mile course
with no competitor in her class. The
Ailsa, although not regularly : entered,
was invited to sail against the Orion
and the representative of the Ailsa's
owner did so. The Ailsa crossed the'
line too soon, had to come back .and
did something frequent enough in
America, but which gave the judges a
scare. She made a turn around the
starter's boat almost touching her
spars and came up to windward. In
the meantime the Orion1 was going)
away fast. The Ailsa at the first turn
was 2 minutes behind; at the second
turn was about even and at the third
turn was 50 seconds ahead-' She fin
ished one minute and ten seconds
ahead of the Orion.
The emperor's Meteor III. was a min
ute behind the Hamburg at the start
and was thirty-four Seconds behind at
the first stakeboat. She passed the
Hamburg hear the second turn, was
one minute and nrty-iour seconds
ahead at the last turn and finished
something over three minutes ahead,
or a minute and two seconds corrected
time. ,',.-'. -
Emperor William was at the wheel
of Meteor III. most Of the time arid was
in very good humor and had Ambas
sador Tower, Wilson Marshall, owner
of the yacht Atlantic, and George Lau
der, owner of the Endymion, who -were
among his guests on board the yacht,
hauling on ropes and assisting in trim
ming ship.
The Meteor III. has been sharpened
at both ends and her keel has been
deepened since last season with the ob
ject of increasing her speed. Some of
the English crew who have sailed in
her both before and since said they did
not believe the alterations had helped
her, and that is. understood to be Skip
per Barker's opinion. But others re
garded the Meteor III.'s performance
to-day as rather better than her previ
ous work. '
The American built Navahoe beat the
Comet over the same thirty-three-mile
course by thirty-one minutes.
The schooner yachts Suzanne and
Clara, owned respectively by O. Huld
schinsky and Max Guilleaume, had a
luffing match all the way. They were
practically even all the time, the Su
zanne winning by scarcely more than
ten feet.

President Determined That the Chinese
Shall Receive Fair Treatment
Washington, June 23. Chinese immi
gration to this country and the execu
tion of the Chinese exclusion laws con
stituted the principal topic of discus
sion at to-day's meeting of the cabinet.
It was the last meeting of the cabinet
to be held .before President Roosevelt
shall leave Washington for the sum
mer, i '.:
1 The situation which has arisen out of
the 'enforcement of the Chinese exclu
sion lay is regarded both by the presi
dent and members of his cabinet as se
rious. As Secretary Taft phrased it.
there seems to be more trouble over the
administration of the law than in tire
law itself. He expressed the belief
that too much time was spent in devel
oping evidence against Chinese who
presumably were entitled to enter the
country. The president made it clear
that he was determined that Chinese
should have fair treatment under the
law whenever they applied for admis
sion to this country at any port. He
believed this was not only in the inter
est of American manufacturers arid
business men, but no more than just to
the Chinese.

Crimson Wants Another Game Played
at Cambridge. ; .--ii.v
A serious disagreement between Yale
and Harvard developed yesterday over
the baseball series that is now raging
between the big universities, and it is
believed by those conneoted with the
management of both teams that the
trouble can only be straightened out
with the greatest difficulty.
It was' thought at first that the pos
sibility of a dispute caused by the tie
game played at Cambridge Thursday
was somewhat diminished by the cap
tains and managers of the two teams
getting together and practically decid
ing that the Yale game Tuesday should
be counted as the first game. Yester
day, however. Harvard switched around
and now comes out strongly for anoth
er game to be played at Cmabrldge,
and then providing that if each tearii
wins a game the final game should be
played in New York, Yalo naturally
objects to this, and yesterday informed
the Harvard managers that .such an
arrangement would be impossible.
It is not known what the final out
come will be, but for the next two days
some warm messages will probably be
exchanged - between Cambridge - and
New Haven.

practice to-day, rowing to the navy
yard and back, but not rucing. .' The

form of the boat as a whole seemed to
show improvement, though Tappan, at
No. 2, was still Inclined to catch a little
ahead of the others, while Burchard, at

situation at this time, beyond remark
ing that "some matters must be, set

Washington conference tends to con

regarding an armistice had not been
received arid until this reply is receiv
ed the result of this phase of the nego
tiations cannot be known. In view of
the fact that the president has thus far
addressed himself simultaneously to
both belligerent powers, there is' a dis
position to believe that Mr. Takahlra
may have brought to the White house
to-night an . expression ' of " Japan's
views upon an armlstloe, in response
to the president's well known hope that
clash would not precede the confer
ence.. It has all along - been under

grant an armistice at this time unless
thoroughly assured . that' Russia was
seriously desirous of peace, t- Whether
such assurances have been forthcom

miral Aloxieff's retirement marks the

to refuse an armistice and force another
big battle now would make her respon
sible for the wanton sacrifice of thou
sands of lives-"
