EUROPE BELIEVES REVOLUTIONARY
MOVEMENT HAS BUT BEGUN.
GOVERNMENT NOW REALIZES
TEMPER OF. THE POPULACE
LONDON, Jan. 23.—Such phrases as
these, extracted from editorial articles
in the London morning newspapers, in
dicate the opinion held here of yester
days' events at St. Petersburg:
"Revolt has been quelled, but revolu
tion begun." /
"The bureaucracy has declared its
policy; it is the policy of Blagovest
"The inevitable reaction has begun,
and with it a new chapter in Russia's
history and probably also in the his
tory of Europe and Asia."
"The revolutionary movement In
Russia has received its baptism of
blood, its crown of martyrdom."
"Is there a Mirabeau or even a Dan
ton in Russia to-day?"
"A very grave responsibility lies to
day at the door of the Czar, who failed
to grasp his unique opportunity."
"The 'Little Father' has become the
murderer of his people, and it remains
with him to save the country from dis
aster. Even at the eleventh hour he
may do so, but only by recognizing
that autocracy has gone forever."
It is pointed out that the fate of Rus
sia does not depend upon the people of
St. Petersburg alone, but on the masses
throughout the country, and it is con
sidered that the events recent
months connected with the agitation
for constitutional reform sufficiently
attest the people's temper.
Some of the special dispatches from
St. Petersburg this morning comment
upon the unexpectedly determined at
titude displayed by the Russian work
men yesterday as revealing a new

Many special correspondents give ex
travagant reports. For instance, the
correspondent of the Dally Mail says
that 20,000 people from Kolpino were
met at the Moscow arch, on the con
fines of St. Petersburg, with six vol
leys and that 1000 fell dead and 1500
wounded. Other correspondents state
that the workmen have proclaimed
their intention to attack private prop
erty and that Minister of the Interior
Sviatopolk-Mirsky has consented to
receive a deputation of workmen to
day. While many estimate the casual
ties at anywhere near 2000 killed and
wounded, there is everywhere conclu
sive evidence of the Impossibility of

Feared That French Scenes Will Be

PARIS, Jan. 22.—The news of the
bloody events In St. Petersburg has
caused a profound sensation here. The
newspapers issued special editions
throughout the evening, giving the
dramat'c details of the street fighting,
and these were eagerly read and dis
cussed in the boulevards, at the the
aters and in other public places the
tragedy being the one subject of com
ment. The newspaper offices were sur
rounded by crowds awaiting bulletins.
Officials here have received advices
practically the same as those made
The general view, including that of
officials, is one of the deepest appre

precipitate in Russia a period of revo

RUSSIA HILLIS' THEME.
Says Empire Has Neglected the Lesson
CHICAGO, Jan. 22.—"Russia has
neglected the lesson of freedom so elo
quently taught by history," declared
Rev. Newel Dwight Hillis of Plymouth
Church, Brooklyn, in a sermon before
his old congregation of Central Church,
preached in the Auditorium to-nisht.
"A new statement of our lesson is to
be found," he said, "in connection with
that great empire of Europe, which
now is disturbed with the preliminary
tremblings of a social earthquake.
Three hundred yearsago the conditions
which prevail in Russia to-day could
be found in England.
"Later, in France, a noble, when the
poor people of Paris asked for bread,
said: 'Let them eat grass,' and the
next day they butchered him in the
streets. To-day we find in Russia a
nation where the lives of the lower
classes are filled with misery and
squalor. In the warm, rich atmosphere
of the twentieth century these condi
tions exist. One part of society, ar
rayed against the lower classes, is say
ing 'We will be blind to the teachings
of history,' and is ignoring the inevit
able consequences which follow the en
slaving of human souls and bodies. A
little handful of men own all the land,
possess all the titles, hold all the priv
ileges. This is a country of which it
can be truly said: 'The lessons of his
tory have been in vain.' But. perhaps,
even now that lesson Is upon us."
