"Tsarskoe' Selo, Russia, March 23
On his arrival here yesterday in the
custody of . four members of the duma
the : deposed Emperor Nicholas was
turned over immediately to the Tsar
skoe Selo commander and taken to
the Alexandrovsky palace, where the
former empress . Alexandra already
was interned. The special train car
rying the former ruler' arrived at
10:30 o'clock on the branch line out
side of " Alexandrovsky park. On
leaving the train Nicholas entered an
automobile, accompanied by his ad
jutant. Prince DolgoroukofC. the only
courtier of the first rank who accom
panied him, by the four 'duma com
missioners. , They were flriven to the
palace.
Nicholas was met at the door in
the left wing of the palace by Count
Benkendorff, who was his marshal of
the court, . and is now under arrest.
The former ruler held himself erect,
looking calm and indifferent, although
he stepped from the automobile with
nervous haste. A r battalion of the
First rifle guard regiment was at the
railroad depot. The commander at
Ti arskoe Selo is Col. Kobuilinsky,
former commander of the Petrograd
sky regiment, stationed in peace time
in Warsaw. To him the duma com
missioners announced?
"Our mission of handing over the
emperor is finished We now go to
I'etrograd to announce this fact to
the duma."
The Associated Press correspondent
drove to the old Tsarskoe Selo palace,
which is entirely deserted and with
out guards, and then to the new
palace, where the former imperial
family is interned. The palace , lies
in a large park enclosed, by a plain
spiked fence five feet high, coated
with, silver paint. From the corner
nearest, the old palace the new palace
is partly visible through the thick
wood, the chief facade, faicng north,
being: entirely in view. The first no
ticeable ' sign of the revolution was
that no imperial 'standard floated
from the roof. Within the park, over
the broad expanse , of snow, not a
single person was 'visible. Apparently
there were no guards within the park,
but outside the fence every 50 yards
along the roadway were double sen
tries from the Petrogradsky . regi
ment, in long blue coats with fixed
bayonets.
MORALITY SUBJECT
AT REVIVAL MEETS
Three evangelistic revival meetings
in Bridgeport had - sweeping effect
upon the large audiences which gath
ered to hear the various preachers last
night. Insufficient wages to the girl,
the so-called double standard, liquor

ed by the many speakers who re
ceived vociferous applause for their
efforts. V
Dr Milton S. Rees spoke in the
Casino where" his previous revivals
have been held fior the last two
weeks. He said that drinking on
the part of wonien in thio community
was upon the increase, that the taste
in many Instances was cultivated di
rectly in7 the home. He called at
tention to the ribald conduct of both
classes in the After-midnight cabs
and automobiles on main thorough
fares and declared no woman safe to
day unless she placed herself ,in
Christ's keeping. .

One of the refugees said:
"For several months the Germans
have been concentrating in the neigh

All civilians deported from northern
France and Belgium were forced to
carry out military ( work feverishly
