London, Oct. 28. —Military circles and tbe public in general were startled today by tbe publication in tbe columns of Truth of the details of another mutinous outbreak upon the Dart of the Grenadier guards, who are now stationed at Wind sor castle. Thiß is the second muiiny of the same battalion in the last six months. It had its origin in tbe ill feeling permeating many of the corps of the British army on account of insuffi cient and unpalatable rations which tne men claimed were served them for their meals. On Wednesday, October 14th, these rations, they claim, were espe cially bad and caused the smouldering feeling of insubordination to break out. The privates of company one refused to eat their rations and they were con fined to the barracks for a day, and the corporals of the same company were placed under arrest pending an inquiry into the mutinous conduct of the pri vates. The inquiry made into the out break showed that the grenadiers had upon a previous occasion complained of the quality of the bread served them, and the justness of their complaint not being admitted, the men threw the bread out of tbe barrack windows into the square. The adjutant of the third battalion declared that he was not aware the mfti had acted in the manner mentioned. He was wholly ignorant of the entire incident, and paid he had not received any report upon the Bubject. Thereupon Truth says: "The evidence of 100 wit nesses can prove the facte. If such ah outbreak and consequent arrests are pos sible without the colonel or adjutant knowing of them, the worst said about tbe gulf separating the officers from the men, is not far short of the truth." The officers of the guards admit that there was a row, but refuse to give par ticulars, declaring the trouble was of a trivial nature. RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION. Germans Driven Out of Russia by a Peculiar System. New York, Oct. 28.—Among the pas sengers on the Majestic, which arrived today, was Dr. Walter Kempster, special immigration commissioner, who haa made au exhaustive investigation of the Russian phase of the subject. Con cerning his trip and the results of it. Dr. ICerapster Haid he could say nothing until bin official report was made. "I will speak on one subject, however," said he. "It is with reference to Ger mans who are being expelled from Russia iv great numbers. This is being done in spite of the fact that there has been no ukase issued ordering the ex pulsions of Germans. They are beine forced out be a system which the peo ple of this country cannot understand. Hitherto their villages had been allowed to elect their own president. Last fall an order was issued that all persons elected to such positions should 'kiss the Russian Christ.' All these Germans being Roman Catholics, have naturally declined to do this, hence they are debarred." 'Other methods of tersecution are practiced," said Dr. Kempster. "If the Germans desire to build any churches or repair existing structures, they are required to submit the plans to the holy synod. This body always raises the estimate from hundreds to thou sands, precluding the possibility of hav ing the work done. The German lan guage is not allowed now to be taught in the schools. All this is nothing more than religious persecution. The conse quence is that the Germans, who are wretche Uy poor, are selling their hold ings at any price and leaving Russia, many going to the Argentine Republic, while others are coming here." Dr. Kempster says they form a most desirable clas9 of immigration lor this country. Speaking of the forthcoming report of the commission, he said when the report is published it will be a text for every newspaper and for every pul pit in the laud. No News of the .Tapan Quake.
