Ing Mobs and Inciting Them to Murder Populace Special Cable to The Herald. PARIS, Nov. 9.— Persky, the well known translator of Maxim Gorky's works, who Is now In Berlin, writes to Aurora: A friend of mine, a doctor at Kleff, writes that 25,000 Jews have been mas sacred and that 1,000 women and chil dren have been outraged and strangled.

TELLS OF AWFUL BARBARITY "Black Hundred" Murder School Children In Procession By Associated Prefes. ST. PETERSBURG, Nov. B.— The revolutionary wave Is beginning to subside, except in the Caucasus. As de tails of what happened throughout European Russia during the upheaval arrive the stories grow more revolt- In the Baltic provinces revolt and incendiarism prevailed. In Poland even the clergy. Catholic and Protest ant, participated in the manifestations in favor of the autonomy of the an cient kingdom. In southwestern Russia hardly a city or town escaped Jewish massacres. At Tomsk, Siberia, according to tho latest reports received here, the whole population of 40,000 and the military stood by while 600 men, women and children were burned in a theater. The court house at Tomsk and the -mayor's" residence, .where the students and revolutionists took refuge from the mob were burned, and those who tried to flee were killed in the streets. In Moscow the special revolutionists and the Black Hundred and the Cos sacks and police fought bloody bat ' ties. The descent of the butchers of Mos cow with their knives and axes upon the students was one of the most hor rible chapters, but not as pitiful, how ever, as the attack of the Black Hun dred on a procession of school children carrying red flags. When the children sought to escape the police barred the way and the youthful martyrs were beaten Into in sensibility and, in some cases, were actually torn to pieces. In the Alexander garden at Moscow Cossacks lay In ambush In the shrub bery and set upon their victims with whips. Many were beaten to death and oth ers were hardly able to crawl away. The reports from the Caucasus show there is no Immediate prospect of sup pressing the present state of anarchy. Battles between Tartars and Arme nians continue, and the destruction of the railroads and the lack of troops make It impossible for the authorities to cope with the situation.

Some mistake as to the date of the trial may have been made by Wright, Johnson urged. Judge Hart said the court has the power to set aside an order of for feiture within 20 days of its entry and should Wright appear the 20 days he. could easily set aside the or der asked for by Seymour. The court then directed that an or der be entered declaring Wright's bond forfeited, and for the present the Wright case Is a closed incident, from its legal aspect.

Foraker today authorized the following statement: "The defeats we have sustained In the city and state have no relation to national politics, but are due solely to local causes. "Whether right or not, the belief ob tains that the great mass of voters have not had any proper representation in nominating conventions and that a man with ambition to engage in' the public service has no opportunity un-, less he was fortunate enough to be put on a prearranged slate. It was nat ural to expect that sooner or later this would be resented. "In large part that is what the de feat of yesterday meant. It will be easy to cure this trouble.

DEMOCRATB SWEEP OHIO Latest Estimates Give Pattlson Plural. lty of Nearly 60,000 By Associated Press. COLUMBUS, 0., Nov. B.— That John M. Pattlson has been elected governor for the next two years by a plurality running well above 40,000 Is settled to night, as also Is the Democratic work ing majority in both houses of the leg islature, but there is still some uncer tainty as to the remainder of the ticket. . . The earlier returns were apparently from sections favorable to the govern or, for he held a lead, over the rest of the ticket until today, when. fuller re turns from the country districts cut into his vote severely and by the mid dle of the afternoon he seemed to be over 40,000 votes behind hiß ticket. If that difference stands the victory of these officers will depend upon j the size of Pattlson's plurality, with the chances in favor of the choice of the entire Democratic list. Chairman Garber tonight figures pluralities for Pattison that aggregated close to 65, 000, In which event the entire Demo cratic ticket was safe. The Republicans have given out no later estimates since that of Chairman Dick concerning the election of Patti son by 25,000 plurality, but later re ports received at headquarters indicate that a larger figure Is correct. Control Senate and House Republican estimates tonight give the Democrats two . to five majority in the next senate and from ten to fifteen In the house, and these are probably the minimum estimates. . The Democrv claim a majority of five in the senate und twenty-seven .in the house. ■ • • The widespread scratching of tickets caused such delay In the counting that thirty hours after the close of the polls there was still uncertainty; notwith standing the overwhelming nature of the Democratic victory. The state officers •■ and legislators chosen yesterday will serve three years, instead of two, as heretofore, the constitutional amendment for bi ennial elections providing that the terms of oftlctals elected at this time shall expire on January 1, 1909, .at which time the state officers and legis lators chosen in November, 1908, will assume office. The legislature chosen in 1908 will choose a United States sen ator in succession to Senator Foraker. For some time there was confusion on this point, and it was widely but In correctly asserted that the legislature just chosen would name Foraker's successor. ... Plurality May Reach 60,000 The reports to Chairman Garber. to night from all sections of the state In dicated a plurality for Pattison of more than 65,000, and. he said 'he be lieved that If the gains continue ..It might reach 60,000. Republican . ad vices Indicated that, leaving out the five large, counties, the Herrlck loss In the remaining 83 counties would' aver age 600 votes to the county, or a differ. ence of nearly 60,000 between the vote cast for Herrlck and and that for- the remainder of the Republican ticket. The other Republicans being thus about 50,000 ahead of their chief, would win If Paulson was less than 60,000 ahead of Herrick, but as the figures Indicated that Pattlson had consider ably more than the ■ necessary 60,000, while the difference between Herrlck and the other Republican candidates seemed to be narrowing slightly, It was PRICE: SINGLE COPY, 5 CENTS safe to assume that the entire Demo cratic ticket had been elected.
