TERRORISM IN RU38IA.
The campaign of assassination now
pursued by the Russian revolutionists
lias a strong if not specious argument
in Its favor. "What we are waging," it
is urged, "Is war, just as truly as Jap
an waged war upon Russia. Their arms
were powder and ball, ours the dyna
mite bomb, each weapon made neces
sary by the conditions. Two nations
were opposed in one case, two classes
in another, the bureaucracy and the
representatives of the people. Our op
ponents are also armed, with knout
and gibbet and volleys of musketry
along the crowded streets of cities.
In the case of this war declaration of
war teas beat* made, and »o tor ifr&m
nr taking unfair advantage we flglit'
M^alnst overwhelming odds. War is the
last recourse and the Russian people
lias tried every peaceful means of se
curing Its essential rights. It Is no
less a legitimate battle that was fought
in the house of Premier Stolypln than
on the plain of Mukden. If noneom
patants, innocent children, suffered In
the former case. It is always the non
combatants who suffer most, In one
way or another, in every war. And If
It Is said that our violence begets vio
lence, it is true in every warfare that
they who take the sword shall per
ish by the sword. Nor Is our warfare
ineffectual, for our enemy, the bureau
cracy, Is already panic stricken, feels
the doom of inevitable defeat, and Is
rily too hesitant for its own salvation
in making concessions forced by the
campaign of the dynamite bomb. In
any case their fault is greater than
The world WU1 grant the last of
these arguments. It is remarkable
how many in civilised lands are ad
mitting the cogency of the other argu
ments. But it must be remembered
that war, to be endurable to the con
science of this generation, must be
absolutely the last resort of the in
jured. And it is also true that no en
lightened conscience of this time will
admit the justification of war except
under conditions of its horrors, like
the humane treatment of prisoners, the
care of the enemy's wounded, and hon
or paid to the vanquished. It is be
cause no such ameliorations can find
place in the warfare of the terror
ists, and because their campaign does
not appear an absolute and final ne
cessity that the spirit of civilization is
forced to denounce it, notwithstanding
tt)e noble motives of those who are in
Hie truest sense not assassins, but sol
diers, and in spite of the *unspeakable
greater measure of obloquy meted out
to the oppression of the Russian peo
The alternative to this warfare has
been suggested by the douma. It is
that the Russian people should re
pudiate the government that has
proved Itself unworthy the title, and
refuse either pecuniary support or
military service. This course would in
volve great suffering, but not an
amount ecual to that entailed in the
campaign of the terrorists.
It is overwhelmingly probable that
the situation is now beyond any peace
ful solution. The crown's ofTer of
land to the peasantry is but one-tenth
of that coming to them by the law of
1861, and will not satisfy either their
sense of justice or their needs. Besides
it'is made too late. The World'must
witness enormities in'comparison with
which the atrocities thus far are but
the beginning of sorrows. The Judg
ment of history will condemn, with'
pity, the excesses of the terrorists,
even though out of all this evil thel-e
emerges good, slowly and imperfectly.
The Chicago Chronicle has stud
ied the Chautauqua question in a phi
losophical manner, and concludes:
There is no finer fruit of modern
civilization than the Chautauqua. This
institution is in evidence in almost
every decent small town or country
neighborhood. It is located in a
grove or on a hill or near a lake. It
has a tent or auditorium in which
there is a succession of entertainments
under christian or at least moral aus
pices. It is the respectable and in
structive resort of thousands and
hundreds of thousands of people who
once spent their evenings and Sundays
far less profitably.
All hail the c-hautauqua! The Chron
icle takes off its hat to it. All the
more for that reason it deplores one
of its tendencies and feels at liberty
to criticise it. Faithftil are the
wounds of a friend.
This tendency Is the morbid cur
iosity which leads It to Invite to its
lecture platform all the political and
sociological freaks in the land. Of
course, this is somewhat natural. The
day has almost gone by when people
listen to lectures for instruction. For
the last forty years at least no lec
turer has been able to attract an au
dience by his lecture. He must have
become notorious in some way, and
even then the lecture is a mere pre
text for looking him over, like a prize
hog at a fat stock show. This to the
way of the world.
The only question is whether the
chautauqua Is not on a higher plane
than the average populace. Judging
by Its genesis and its founders, tlie
general impression is that it is some
thing more than usually dignified si ml
clean, if not christian. The chau
tauqua auditorium therefore is not a
place where one would expect to hear
unworthy sentiments expressed even
by notorious characters.
The truth is, however, that the
chautauqua seems to be inordinately
fond of people who are in the public
eye whether they represent sense
nonsense, truth or error, virtue or vk«.
The season has just closed and the.s-^
freak lecturers are now putting away
their nonsense in camphor until next
June. The fjuestion for Chautauqua
managers is whether they shall ever
be permitted to air them again on

....Gotham News Letter....
New York, Sept. 22.—The real es
tate boom, which had assumed such
immense proportions, has suffered a
check. The current stringency in 4he
money market has struck the real es
tate market harder than any other
section of, the business commurilty.
Mortgages were paying such c^pripara
tlvely small rates that many Invest
ors have fallen into the habit? of loan
ing on other securities, and conse
quently real estate mortgages have
been left to the savings banks and
building and loan societies. On both
of these the speculators in real es
tate had leaned with great weight,
fairly rushing the market with their
applications, in order to buy the bar
gains which were legitimate Invest
ment, stirred up by large profits made
In quick exchange of property. Be
sides this the savings banks have been
drawn upon very heavily by deposi
tors,-for Investment in real estate, so
that they have less than the usual
proportionate of assets to invest in
mortgages based also upon real estate.
In consequence there is no longer a
boom In real estate circles, but rather
a decided dullness, not to say gloom.
Since January 1st the total number of
mortgages that had been recorded up
to last week was 19,818 against 24.046
last year for the same per
iod, and they were for over
a, hundred and eighty mil
lions of dollars less money. And this
although there has .been but a slight
falling off in the number of buildings
erected. This shows that the build
ers have not secured all the money
they needed for the construction of the
buildings they have put under way.
The rate of interest has kept up not
withstanding the operation of the
mortgage tax law, which exacts half
of one per cent at the time of record
ing the mortgage and exempts the
mortgage from further taxation, and
it has had no effect upon the rate of
interest. The building and loan com
panies report that they are loaded up
to their full limit. The result will be
that the high prices of real estate will
soon show a decline. Failures of
some speculative builders are spoken
of as not at all unlikely.
During a sharp thunderstorm last
week a business man who has an of
fice in a skyscraper building was sur
prised to see a young lady step in and
hear her ask for permission to sit
down for a little while. He acced
ed of course, and she then said she
was so afraid of the lightning and
thunder that she came to another of
fice up the hall In order to be with
somebody while the storm was on.
When the storm passed she left,
thanking the gentleman, and seeming
to have received a great favor. It
seems that there are a great many af
flicted. as she is, with an abnormal fear
of a thunderstorm.
Patrolman Loeb and Byrnes were
passing a three-story brick store and
dwelling on Eighth avenue early in
the morning when they noticed that a
tailor store on the ground floor was on
fire. The officers immediately set
about awakening the Campbell fam
ily, who live over the store. In a
I few minutes two women appeared at
the windows above the store. As
there was no exit from the house, ex
jcept through the burning store, the
i women were told to wait until the fire
had arrived. They disap
peared for a brief time, but they came
to the window again, each with a bird
,cage, which they dropped to the offi
cers. Each cage contained a can
ary. The women went back then and
reappeared each carrying a small dog.
The operation of dropping was then
repeated, the animals beta* caught by
The operation of a municipally own
ed ferry gave out a startling Incident
last week, when one night the patrons
of the Staten Island ferry found that
serlvc'e on the line had been suspend
ed for two and=a Half hours, and learn
ed that this had been done to enable
jthe employes to participate hi a meet
ing of the Cherokee club at New-
Brighton, where Nicholas Muller and
Sheriff McCormick, rival candidates
for the democratic leadership, were
fighting for the endorsement of the
organization. Lawrence Hallen, sup
erintendent of the line, is the man
who is said to have tied up the boats.
Mayor McClellan has come just in
time to investigate the matter. It
certainly is a disturbing thought that

Heroes and heroines continue to crop
out in the reports of the day's doings
of the great city and its suburbs. Ov
er in Jersey City, modest eight-year
old Jessie De Young, said to an officer
who commended her for saving her
playmate aged twelve from drowning,
"well, I couldn't stand there and see*
Nellie drowned, could I?" Jessie and
Nellie Drew had been playing near the
river at Bayonne, when Nellie fell in.
Without^ a jmloment's ^hesitation the
eight-year-old girl jumped In with all
her clothes on, swam to her drowning
playmate. Just before she reached
lier side Nellie sank for the second
time and Jessie dove and caught her
by the arm. Nellie struggled and
several times pulled her smaller res
cuer under water, but with rare
presence of mind Jessie held the oth
er glri under water until she had losft
consciousness and ceased to fight.
Then though almost exhausted, she
swam with her to shore..
The raising of wages by the New
York Street Railway Co. came as a
surprise to them as they had not ask
ed for it, the company asking for the
initiative. It was a well deserved
raise, as New York has the best mo
tormen and conductors in the country,
and the management appreciates them.
There is also a great scarcity of good
men for running trolley cars In this
city, and good men can get places for
the asking at once. The trolley lines
in this city, are run on the best kind
of system, and there are very few
complaints of them while in Brooklyn
the complaints are continuous and
never ending. It is surprising what
a dlfferenece one little river makes,
when on one side of it is continual
wrangling, and on the other side con
tinual harmony and smoothness.
The boy that dived from the Brook
lyn bridge last week is an expert at
the business. He experimented to
see if he could dive a hundred and
thirty-six feet, as he had dived mafty
smaller distances. He gives out th«
statement that the only thing he
could think of In his descent was the
fact that he had not paid his laundry
bill. He said he only bunged his ey^
a little bit, and felt a little sore. He
weighs 152 pounds, but he says he
made a shallow dive, going under only
ten feet, and could have swum to land
easily if a tug had not been handy.
He certainly did not dive for purposes
of suicide. He managed to have his
head strike the water first, and said
it didn't seem as long for his descent
as it had done in previous jumps of
sixty feet, which he frequently makes

The dangers of the barber shop*
seem to Increase in number and var
ety. A bald man has a hard time 'Of
it when he enters a barber shop, as
dangers seem to be lying wait for
his hapless scalp. Hair tonic was
the cause of a bald man getting his
scalp badly scorched the other day in
a city shop. The barber had just
applied it when the victim struck a
