He has Just returned from see ing ofT his brother, who is departing for the front, and writes of the touch ing scenes he witnessed at Tamhofl as the reserve men left for tha Far East. Young Tolstoi says the peas ants are united In agreeing thnt tho war must be fought out until Japan Is subdued. He adds: It is a hard time for Russia, hut It is the period of her regeneration. The war in the Far East Is a great war, such as Russia hasiot seen since the days of Peter the Great a war for the possession of the eastern shores of the European-Asiatic continent, Just as in the days of Peter it was for the -western shores. Just as in the war with the Swedes we suffered at Narva, but we conquered at Poltava, we are now suffering reverses with the Asiatic Swedes; but there will come a day when Japan will be vanquished." In concluding, young Tolstoi pre dicts tho triumph of-Russia, which he declares Is deftlnc-d "to become,. In stead of England, the greatest nation in tho world." 119 says tho Slavs will spread over and absorb all the neigh boring people they have already sub jugated in the Crlmpa, the Caucasus, Eastern Russia and Siberia, adding: 'Russia In lhi only power destined tn realiv.o the dream of world con finest."

Kelly Relates Story of St. Louis Combine. Kelly Names a Politician Who Gave Him $15,000 to Keep Out of Reach of Grand Jury Plots to Intimidate and Discredit Circuit Attorney Folk. Price of Votes. St Louis, Oct. 4. In a written con fession Charles F. Kelly, speaker ol the house of delegates during a period In the life of the boodle combine, re lates the story of that combine. Kelly details the Btory of the city lighting deal, for which he says a boodle fund of $47,500 was divided be tween the 19 members of the combine at Julius Lehmann's birthday party. He declares that a go-between gave him the boodle fund and that he took it to Lehmann's house and that he there divided it "We had a fixed schedule of prices," ho said, "for various bills, according to the value of the franchises or privi leges given. We hardly ever received less than $1,000 for the combined vote On one or two occasions, though, we got as low as $50 each for our votes, end some of the boys took $5 each. "Our combine was not along party lines. Both Democrats and Repub licans belonged to it. My experience has been that boodlers Hue up accord ing to their own interests and not un der party standards. Democrats and Republicans In St. Louis usually nom inate men to go tn the house of dele gates for the money they can make out of It. "Each party man votes for his own fellow and either one that gets in serves those who rob the city of fran chises. I believe this has been tol erated in St. Louis, because the heads of so many of the large corporations of the city used to think it less trouble to buy what they wanted than to eleel honest men to the house of delegates. "There are many other things I can and will tell later on, but this will do now. This, in brief, Is my story and the confession of my Infamy. I be lieve, though that If the people of St Louts allow this man (a prominent pol itician Is named) to go on and control both political parties and put his men In office, the public will be Just at guilty as I am today. "I am now suffering the penalty ol my crimes, am degraded and dis graced. I shall endeavor for the rest of my life to atcne for the wrongs 1 have done." Kelly declared that the politician he mentions paid him $15)00 of the $50, 000 promised on condition that Kelly would keep away from tho grand Jury Kelly went to Europe, Intending to re main until after the statute of limita tion had run out on the lighting deal By a miscalculation, Kelly said, he came back too soon and was arrested Kelly added: "I know from my own knowledge and from the statements made to me by those on the Inside that bribery has been going on in the municipal assembly of St Louis foi the past 25 years. Hardly a bill passed that body In the last quarter of a century unless It was paid for. We did not fear exposure and punish ment. "When the present prosecutor (Cir cuit Attorney Folk) commenced hie war on us, we tried to intimidate htm by threats of assassination and when this had no effect we laid all sorts ol traps for him, without success. Then some decided that the best plan would bo to start a newspaper and libel him so fiercely as to draw his fire by tak ing up his time In libel prosecuting, or if he did not, his Influence would be weakened and destroyed. "Although we could And nothing after a thorough search to make at tack on, libels were deliberately made up for the purpose of affecting public Bentlment. This plan was participat ed In, not only by members of the house of delegates under Indictment for Doodling but by prominent finan ciers of St. Louis who feared exposure and by those who gave ua the money." Of the combine, Kelly had this to say: "We never thought of passing a bill out of which any money could be ob tained, unless we were paid for our votes. We went about it in a busi ness like way and had combine meet ings at stated times and fixed the bribe price which we were to receive for our votes, by a majority vote ol the combine. Then we would select ene of the combine In whose honesty we had confidence, to go out and get the money. "Among ourselveB, understand, we fad a high code of mora'.-, and it wat considered extremely dishonest for a member of the combine to accept brlbo money without dividing it among his follows." Conspirators Gave Ball. Trenton, N. J., Oct. . Julius S Stone, Harry C. Qulntard, James Rusf and Charles W. Russ, who were Joint ly Indicted on a chargo of conspiracy against tho United States government and prejudlco against the government steamship inspection laws by placing pieces of iron Inside of cork life pre servers, pleaded not guilty today and gave bail.

The wellknown legal firm of Dolson & Poison In EM cott square has been asked to defend a client who does not appear to re quire the services of an attorney Just at the 'present time.

Dally Is dead at his home In East Or gan ge from the effects of a cancerous growth resulting from long continued persistence In experimenting with X ray apparatus In tho Edison labora tory.

For 16 years Mr. Dally was employed In the Edison works and seven years ago became assistant In the X-ray experimental department, where continuous exposure to the mys terious power of the rays Induced the cancerous growth on his hands which finally caused his death, after Intense suffering, and the successive amputa tion Of both his arms.
