LIFE OF WITTE
REVOLUTIONISTS UNEARTH A
Reformers Will Guard Premier— St.
Petersburg Excited Over Report
That General Massacre of
Jews Is Planned
suciecdH Prince HlllkofC of minister of
communications. The constitutional
democrats consider that they have won
v great victory by preventing any
leaders of the constitutional group
from accepting office, saying that
Count Wltte'H ministry Is thus stamped
purely temporary and must give way
immediately upon the convening of the
national assembly to a cabinet in full
sympathy with the parliamentary ma
jority. The count Is greatly disap
pointed at the refusal of the consti
tutionalists to support him, since it
forces him to fight on two fronts, with
the reactionaries on his right and the
social democrats and revolutionaries
clamoring for a republic on his left.
Invitation to Tolstoy
Count AVltte has Invited Count Tol

of the academy of fine arts, owing to
Oen. Trepoff's reserve policy, to
take the portfolio of education. Count
John Tolstoy Is no relation to Count
Leo Tolstoy. Prof. Kevesky has joined
Michael Stakovich In the organization
of a Christian democracy.
A long official program published
this morning denies that disorders In
any part at the country have been fo

ises a most cureful Inquiry Into the
outrages against life and property and
the adoption of measures to prevent
their recurrence. It says that even
were the accusations against the gov
ernment confirmed they would not form
a pretext for the recent terrible oc
currences. The government recognizes
that it is Its duty to remain quite im
partial'and to give its protection to all
persons requiring it.
The government will strive to fulfill
the emperor's will regarding the free
dom of citizenship, the communication
says. "The hostile factions of differ
ent parties and the moderates result
in a situation unsuitable for the In

Stories of Proposed Carnival of Blood
~? • Excite St. Petersburg
By Associated Preus.
ST; PETERSBURG. Nov. 10.— Stories
are being industriously circulated that
a regular St. Bartholomew massacre
of the Jews and intellectuals has been
planned by the "Black Hundred" of St.
Petersburg for some time. It is de
clared that all houses containing Jews
are being marked with a red cross.
While It Is undoubtedly true that the
lower classes would like to be let loose,
no real danger Is anticipated, as the po
lice have received the most rigid in
structions to suppress any attempt at
an :. uprising.
Count Witte has ordered a thorough
investigation of all the Jewish mussu
cies and other disorders in the interior
where the police, troops and officials
are charged either with inciting or
abetting violence, and he is determined
to have all the offenders removed and
Genuine alarm has, however, been
created by the reports of the contem
plated massacre of Jews here tomor
row night, as shown by the fact that
members of the American colony, in
cluding a number of naturalized Jews,
appeared at the embassy today In a
greatly alarmed state to ask advice
Spencer Eddy, the American charge
d affaires, made them a speech, saying
that he did not regard an outbreak as
.possible, but he Instructed them all In
the event of danger to seek asylum at
the Klienmlchael palace in Serge
street, in which the embassy is Rituat
ed. Should the threatened outbreak oc

guard for the palace. The other em

MINOR STATE OFFICES NOT
Indication That Harris, Republican
Candidate for Lieutenant Governor,
May Have Been Elected — All
Returns Not Yet In
i(y Associated I'ress.
COLUMBUS, 0., Nov. 10.— Comph-te
returns on the state ticket, except for
governor, are still unavailable tonight,
with the result that both the Repub
lican* and Democrats continue to claim
the election of all minor state offices.
Official returns from eighteen counties
show that Harris, the Republican candi
date for lieutenant governor, has an
average lend in t-ach county of 740 over
Herrir.k for governor. If l,hls ratio
should be maintained In the remainder
of the clghty-elght counties of tho
state, which Is considered doubtful,
Harris would have a lead of 66,000 over
Herrlck In the state.
This would insure the election not
only of Harris for lieutenant governor,
but all tho remainder of the Republican
state ticket, as Harris apparently re
ceived the lowe3t vote nfxt to Herrlck.
Attorney General Ellis and State
Treasurer McKlnnon claim that re
turns received by them from a ma
jority of the counties tn this state in
dicate their election by a plurality of
15,000 to 20,000. The Republicans claim
the lower branch of the legislature by
sixty-two to fifty-nine, and the Demo
crats claim it by sixty-two to fifty-nine.
On the face of the unofficial returns the
senate Is composed of nineteen Demo
crats and eighteen Republicans, but the

AVASIIINGTON, Nov. 10.— The presi

of the case of Midshipman Brnnch,
who died at the naval academy at
Annapolis after a glove contest with
Secretary Bonaparte today made a
request of the superintendent, Admiral
Sands, for the specific Information de
sired. At the conclusion of a long:
conference with Wf admiral, It was
stated that no action had been de
termined upon, although It was indi
cated that there might be a statement
from an official quarter tomorrow.
It was stated that according to in
formation before the department the
indicaions were that the death of Mid
shipman Branch was caused by re
peated blows on the head and that
in the opinion of medical men It could
not have been caused by a single blow.
Secretary Bonaparte said today that
the practice of fighting at the academy
was very objectionable and thought it
should be discouraged.
Statement Comes Fro-n Academy Re-
garding Fatal Battle
By Assnelnted Press.
ANNAPOLIS, Nov. 10.— A statement
coming from within the naval academy
and believed to represent the midship
men's version of the fight between Mid
shipmen Merlweather and Branch and
the death of. the latter is as follows:
The fight between Midshipmen
Branch. and Meriweather was because
of personal dislike and trouble between
the two midshipmen, which culminated
in the latter personally insulting the
former. Midshipman Branch did not
report Midshipman Meriweather for any j
violation of regulations and he did not'
incur this fight because of discharging
his duty. Branch challenged Meri
weather as the result of insulting re
marks addressed to him by the latter,
and it was decided that their dif
ferences be decided in the usual manly
American fashion. In weight there was
not a difference of over five pounds be
tween the two. Both midshipmen were
good physical specimens of manhood,
Branch having at one time had the
academy lightweight wrestling cham
pionship. Meriweather was not con-
Bldered to be exceptionally well de
veloped physically, ns has been errone
ously stated. This way of settling their
personal differences may have been a
mistaken one, but as far as can be
said about an affair of this description
it was free from brutality and any un
fairness, and the tragic ending Is a
most lamentable accident.
At the conclusion of the fight Branch
wus able to walk to his room and there
conversed with his seconds for a time,
afterward taking a shower bath and
retiring. No fear of the result being
tragic was felt. until the next morning,
when he was found unconscious.
The code at the naval academy abso
lutely prohibits fighting over a report.
Midshipmen on duty frequently have
to exercise this duty for the main
tenance of discipline and it would.be
just as serious an offense against their
code for the midshipmen so reported
to challenge the one who made the re
port us it would for a' University of
Virgina student to offend against their
code of honor by cheating a an examin
