Terrible State Of Affa
of The Czar
The Revolt of the Striking Workmen
- in the Russian Capital Culminates in
a Deadly Conflict With the Troops
One'Detachment of. thc Infantry Re
fuses to Fire on the Strikers, Throw
Jng Down Its ATHIS.
SL Petersburg, By Gable.-Thc re
frolt of striking -workmen culminated j
Sunday in a bloody conflict with the
.troops. At 9:30 o'clock p. m., it was
believed that 1,500 people had been
. killed or wounded, but air estimates
for the present must be accepted with
caution. Popular rumor says that
many thousands have fallen. The city
at 9:30 was quiet. Troops are bivou- ?
acked around camp fires here and :
there in the streets. One detachment.
j:{ "of infantry refused to fire on the peo- j
pie and laid down their arms, but Uh* j
Ians and Cossacks attacked thbse the
infantry would not. Firing continues j
.;"on th? ; Vassiliostroy. It is rumored -
that the workmen there have seisod ? ?
i?ynamite factory and also tho* 30,000 '.
" or 40,000 armed strikers from Kolpino, j
16 miles distant, are marching on St, J
Barricades erected on -the island of
Vassili Ostrov late Sunday "night were !
destroyed by troops almost immediate
ly, with the loss of 30 workmen killed.
The sympathy of the middle class ?5 ?
;ivJth the workmen. i
If Father Gopon, the master mind
' of the movement, aimed .at open revo-1
iution, he managed the affair like a '
genius to break the faith of the people 1
in the "Little Father," who, they were !
convinced, ana whom Father Gopon
had taught them, would . right fchiM?.
wrongs and redress their j?rri?Vances.
. Gorky, the Russian novelist, expressed
the opinion th?*. Sunday's work will
break this raith cf the people in the
Emperor. He said:
'.'This day inaugurated revoluti?ft m
"Russia. The Emperor's prestige wfU
he irrevocably shattered by the shed
ding of innocent blo?dv K? has alien
r ated himself forever-from his people*
. t??pon taught the workmen to, believe
that-an appeal direct^ to 'the' "Little
. Father" \voUld be heeded. They hav?
heea "undeceived. Gopon is now con
Tinged-that jiea?cf ul means Jxave failed.
-?nd that, the Only remedy is force. The
' itirst blood has been , shed," but more
^viU follow. It is now the people
. against the "oppressors, and the battlo
fjf?l be fought to the bitter end,"
.The military authorities had a firm
gnp cn every, artery in the city. At
daybreak, guards, regiments, cavalry
/ held every bridge across the frozen
Neva, the network of caiials which in
terlaces the city, andv the gates
leading from the industrial sec
tion; while in the palace square,
at the storm center. were
marched dragoons, infantry, and
Cossacks of the- guard?? Barred from
o' the bridges and. gates, men, women
and children crossed the frozen river
and canals on. the ico by twos and
threes, hurrying to the palace square,
where they were sure the Emperor
would be j to hear them. The street
approaches to the square were cleared
by volleys and Cossack charges. Men
and women, infuriated to frenzy by the
.. idss of loved ones, cursed the soldiers
; while they retreated. Men har
rangued the crowds, telling them that
the Emperor had foiled them and thatf^j
the time, had come to act. Men beganffjj
to build barricades in the Nevsky pros-'
* peet and at other points, using any gj
material that came to hand and even ?i:
chopping down telegraph poles. er
