The entire guilt for the disaster rests

we w e will shortly hear of other ominous
events e throughout the country
Had U the government met the present
project p roject in the right rht spirit It might have
Inaugurated i a peaceful era for the
country c iitintry ntry But as it was met by b re revolt lt ¬
ing i i ng brutality It means the beginning of
a long and bloody blood civil war
The Theoutcome outcome will m not only be the
downfall d of the autocracy autocrac but butth the dls ¬
appearance n of the present ruling dy d ¬
nasty n asty and may be the disappearance of
the t he monarchy monarch generally in Russia
Soskice added that mone money which may

A regiment re gi m en t of reserves res en CS was ordered j

hesitation of ofhs his men the colonel ap ¬ I Ihesltatian
pealing to t7ielr tIelrdevotlon devotion to the Em ¬
peror perorand and their their country then tl en ordered
the t he colors forward and gave the order
for t or the bugler to sound the assault
Not a man stirred The colonel in des d
peration made another Impassioned
i speech appealing to their sense of
i honor and their courage as soldiers soldi rs
j Waving his sword he shouted
Two Officers Charge Alone
h hI I will lead you on oil und If you dont
come I will go alone aloneu u
The colonel rushed forward forward followed
only onbb by hIs adjutant Both officers fell
riddled with bullets All the officers of
the regiment headed head d by the major
made a final passionate appeal to tath the
men to do their duty then rushed for fur ¬ 1
ward wardlna In a body with the men still hang hangi ¬ i
ing back Twothirds of the officers I II
I were vere stretched on the ground by bullets I
At last when Wh n some of 0 t the surviving SurYiVIn l
officers crept back weeping with r1g rage j
and humiliation the men suddt suddenly > nly pull

forward led by a Jew few subalterns They The
