Premier's Action
Uy Associated Press!
ST. PETERSBURG, Nov. 4.— Count
Wltte . is getting his hands on the
helm and the Russian ship of state Is
beginning to right Itself. Gradually the
■disorder that followed the promulga
tion pf the constitution, giving the
people liberty, Is being put down. The
premier has met the immense difficul
ties confronting him, and the pressure
of the demands of the different classes
of society with energy and sincerity
that are more and more giving him
the support of the moderate liberals,
who have been frightened by, the car
nival of disorder into which the coun
try has been plunged and the inordi
nate demands of the proletariat under
the leadership of the "Iteds" and So
cial Democrats.
Freedom of the press and general
amnesty for offense, except crime,
have followed each other, but Count
Witte hns steadfastly refused to yield
to the demand for the organization of
a national guard, on the ground that
it would be equivalent to arming
the Socialists to fight and destroy the
whole government between midnight
and morning.
Count Wltte today solved the rail
road strike at it conference with the
prike leaders at which he did not hesi
tate to make a practical surrender of
the government to reasonable de
mnnds. The bases of settlement are
comprised In the following communica
tion sent to the strike committees
throughout the empire:
Terms With Strikers
First — Tim remuneration of all rail
road employes is Increased and the
budget of 1900 wll lbe revised to pro
vide therefcr.
Second— The ..creat lon of a committee
on which the employes are to have
elected representatives to consider
(tuitions of Improvement in their con
;, Third— Permission Is given railroad
employes and workmen to have a co
ooenitive organization based on models
,of western Europe and the United
Stites. :• - -
■■: Fourth— The abolition of military
regulations applying to railroads.
Flfth-»Freedom of meeting for em
ployes of railroads to discuss questions
■of' a .strike without notice being given
to the police.
Sixth— lnviolability of the persons of
strikers and the re-employment of men
dismissed for striking.
Seventh— The cancelling of all circu
lar^ limiting the employment of Poles
Mil' the. Polish Southwestern and Wes
tern railroads nnrt giving permission
to use the Polish language in private.
Railroads Resuming Work
Under this settlement nil the rail
roads are resuming work today.
■ Quite as important was M. Witte's
decision in connection with the situa
tion in Finland. He fully realizes the
necessity, of appeasing the aspirations
of the Finns and proposed to the em
peror, the entire reversal of the policy
of Russiflcntion of Flnlaiid, to which
he himself has always been opposed,
and the restoration of the old civil and
nVMtary liberties of the grand duchy.
The Associated Press hears that Em
peror Nicholas was convinced by Count
Witte's arguments as to the necessity
for such a step and the proclamation
may be issued tonight.
Meantime Gen. Trepoff is restoring
In the interior martial law has been
declared and In many Uties In order to
quell disturbances a sort of militia has
been organized under the direction of
students. ■
. Social Democrats in a number .cf
places .including Kazan, Odessa and
Yaraslav,, are helping to maintain or
der, but are not co-operating with the
' Witte's Acts Applauded
Without exception the newspapers
express their appreciation of the enor
mous, task Count Wltte has assumed
and while some of them doubt his suc
cess In view of the obstacles he will
encounter, both from below and above,
there is no attempt to question tha
sincerity of his purpose nor his great
ability, and the promptness with which
he proclaimed the freedom of the press
and amnesty and the retirement of M.
I'obledonostseff, chief procurator of the
holy synod; M. Glasoff, minister of
education, and Governor General Kile
gels of the government of Kleff Is ap
plauded as evidence of the kind of stuff
he is made' of. The Russ says:
"The first appointment, thut of
Prince Alexis Oholenskyas chief pro
curator of the holy synod, is a splen
did one. The days of ■ Bobiedonostseff
and Torquemada are ended."
The Novosti, speaking of the passing
of Pobiedonostseff, says:
-Twenty-nve years a champion of
oppression, ignorance and poverty, he
favored a government founded on vio
lence and Intolerance and brought
Russia to beggary and starvation and
the disgrace of the battle of the Sea of
Japan and the bloody horror of later
Want Trepoff Removed
• The Russ heads the cry for General
Trepoft'B removal, declurlng that "he
was tjie Incarnation of a regime of
bayonets, bullets and Cossack whips
which everywhere has failed, and the
people never will 4ie satisfied as long
us the control of the troops remains In
his hands."
To a deputation which waited on him
today- Count Wltte said It was Impos
sible to remove the troops from the
cities until order was restored, and
tisked the deputation to have con
fidence In the Intentions of himself and
the. government. •

and Jerome Favorites in Betting
Special to The Herald.
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 4.— No mu
nicipal election for many years has
excited so much interest as the pres
ent contest between Mayor Eugene E.
Schmitz, the' candidate of the Union
Labor party, and John S.- Partridge,
the candidate of the fusion party.
which Is made up of the Republican
'and Democratic parties. During the
last two years of Schmitz' incumbency
the feeling has gradually grown bitter
among a large class against the meth
ods of the commissioners appointed by
Schmitz to administer . the municipal
government and it was decided to com
bine the strength of the two old par
tii'n against him.
Schmitz claims the fight is capital
against labor and throughout the cam
paign he and his speakers have de
clared that the Citizens' alliance is
back of the fusion ticket and domi
nates the policy of Its candidates. He
claims if fusion wins the hours of the
laboring men will be Increased, and
In case of a strike all the power of the
police will be used to crush the union
On the other hand the fusion leaders
declare that the fight Is purely one
against graft; that If Partridge is elect
ed he will purge the departments of
grafters and insist upon an honest ad
ministration of the city.
Partridge, who was not well known
when nominated, being a deputy in
the district attorneys office, has made
the campaign as brilliant as Jerome's
first campaign In New York, and has
won thousands of votes by his able
The registration this year was 97,000
and the vote will certainly be between
75,000 and 80,000. Scnmltz claims the
election by from 6000 to 12,000, while
the Partridge leaders claim a victory
by from 10,000 to 15,000.
At the last election Schmitz polled
26,000 votes and the combined Republi
can and Democratic vote was only 32,
000. Schmitz claims he did not then
get the full labor vote and that many
sporting men voted for Crocker, the
Republican candidate. Now he claims
all the labor and sporting vote, the
latter because the town is wide open.
There has been considerable betting
on this election and the odds have
varied from 7 to 10 to 8' to 10, but to.
day several large bets were made at
ti'/z to 10. A leading merchant of the
wholesale district made one bet of
J2OOO to $1300 on Partridge today and
bays ho huß 130,000 more to wager at
George B. McClellan
the same odds. Mose Ounst has placed
the best part of $10,000 on Partridge
at 10 to 7.

NEW YORK, Nov. 4.— No municipal

"The thirty days which I allowed the

excitement Incident to a narrow escape
from death and a horse killed was the
result of a collision between a speed-
Ing automobile driven by Henry R.
Angelo and a horse and buggy at the
corner of Pico and Hill streets at 7
o'clock last night. f
Angelo, who Is a wealthy contractor
and resides at 2133 Harvard boulevard,
was driving the automobile which, ac
cording to witnesses, was running at a
high rate of speed.
E. L.. Titus and his. wife, victims of
the .accident, were driving; their gentle
old family horse attached to a small
buggy. When they reached the Inter
section of Pico and Hill streets Titus
attempted to turn north on Hill street.
As he began to round the corner the
automobile struck the horse full In
front, throwing it with. the buggy and
two occupants clear . back on Pico
street, a distance of about thirty-five
feet. ' - •■.;:,; •:*■;
As soon as • the accident occurred
Angelo leaped from his seat In the
machine and asked the old couple if
they were hurt.. .
Women In Auto Disappear
After he had asked as to the condi
tion of the aged pair -witnesses say
Angelo went to the back of his machine
and tore the • number from where It
hung-. Bystanders say Angelo took the
number tag to the curb and broke oft
the last numeral. The number as
registered was 1234, Cal. As altered
the witnesses gay it read 123, Cal.
At the time of the accident there
were said to be three women In the car
wltrt Angelo, but they disappeared im

tained that one of the -.vomen was Mrs.
Angelo, as she went to a flat near by
and telephoned to her home, where she
told a servant that they had been in an
accident and were coining home on an

Parent Hears of Tragedy and Becomes
So Hysterical That Physicians Fear
She May Die— Suffers Relapse
When Woman Questioned Her
Upcn hearing the news of the death
of her son Louis West, who was killed
while hunting near Piru yesterday,
Mrs. J. West, who resides at the Ca6tle
Craig, was seized with an attack o&
hysterics and may die.
West was killed while riding with
a number of friends in a buckhoard.
He held a loaded shotgun and In some
manner the weapon w.is discharged,
the shot tearing away the left side of
West's face and head. With all possi
ble haste the friends drove to Plru but
a physician there told them West had
been killed instantly.
■West left early In the morning for
an all day's hunt and had been travel-
Ing from one place to another In the
buckboard. At the time of the acci
dent ho was riding in the rear seat
alone and waß holding his shotgun In
his left hand.
In some manner the gun sipped from
his hand and striking on the bottom of
the buckboard was discharged. Being
only a few inches from his face the
whole charge of the cartridge struck
the left side of West's face.
Coroner Beekler of Ventura county
left for the scene of the accident as
soon as he received word and held an
Inquest late last evening. Meager In
formation regarding the tragedy was
telephoned to friends and West's
mother at once.
The news caused Mrs. « est to be
come violently ill but Just us the physi
cians succeeded in getting her In a

northwest corner of Hill an-i Pico
waiting to take a Pico Heights car. I
saw the old man and his wife drive
slowly around the corner and I saw the
automobile strike them. The motor was
running at a very high rate of speed,
more than twenty miles an hour, I
should say.
Mrs. Titus' Condition Serious
"When the collision occurred the
horse and buggy were thrown clear
back on Pico street. When they struck
the sound was indescribable, but it was
sickening, horrible.
"The old lady was either thrown out
or she jumped out, I don't know which,
but I think that ahe was thrown out.
"The driver of the automobile seemed
to be drunk and was hardly able to
walk when he first got out of the
machine. There was a lot of bottles of
beer broken right back of the machine.
"I saw the chauffeur take the num
ber from the machine and attempt to
smash It."
Angelo was taken to the central sta
tion by Patrolmen Carr and Singleton
and was booked on a charge of intoxi
cation. He gave ball in the sum of $50
and was allowed to go to his home.
It Is stated at the police station that
Angelo will be prosecuted for running
down the aged couple.,
The horse was so r^verely injured
that it was necessary to shoot It.
At a late hour last night Mr. Titus
was resting easily, but his wife is in
a very serious condition and It Is feared
that she may die as the result of the
Mr. Angelo's Statement
Mr. Angelo, In discussing the acci
dent, said his automobile was not be
ing driven at a high rate of Bpeed when
the accident occurred. He said he
turned out to escape a street car and
collided with the vehicle in which Mr.
and Mrs. Titus were riding. Mr. An
gelo denied emphatically that he had
taken the number off his machine but
says it was torn off by the collision.
Mr. Angelo scoffed at the idea that
he was intoxicated and declared there
was no foundation for such a charge.
"We were running carefully," said the
contractor, "when the accident oc
curred. I do not think the persons in
the buggy were severely Injured."
