patch receired here from Batoum, in
the Government of Kutal», Trans-
eavcasta, reports the outbreak of m.
revolution there. It says that the
•treets vrere barricaded and that fierce
fighting- took place. The military em
ployed artillery and many persons, In
cluding subjects of the Ottoman empire,
were killed. *In response to a request
made by the Turkish Consul, the Porte

vessels to Batoum to brine back

ST. PETERSBURG. Doc. 17.— A shud
der of horror has convulsed Russia. The
Government claims it has given battle
only to the "red" revolutionists, but the
populace generally believes that the
"white terror" has returned. Already
the leaders of the proletariat agitation,
\u25a0*ch/> e.=f.ap«KJ .rsLpture.on-. Saturday night
a.t the Economic Society, and even men
of the tank of Professor Milukoff are'ln
hiding from the police, who are bunting
them down.
The Government evidently expects a
battle royal and has made its disposi
tions accordingly. It fully understands
that the proletariat will give blow for
blow In answer to the wholesale arrests.
The Workmen's Council and the League
of Leagues last night issued a declara
tion of a general strike, to be begun im
mediately, and consequently, by an Im
perial ukase published this morning, all
Governors General, Governors and pre
fects throughout the empire, wno are cut
off by telegraph, are clothed with almost
dictatorial powers, being authorized,
without consulting St. Petersburg, to de
clare a state of elege and, if necessary,
even martial law. As most of the pro
vincial authorities are reactionary offi
cials of the old regime, the advantage
they will take of such power to terrorize
the populace can easily be imagined,
they being In a position to become petty
tyrants and wage war each In his own
particular fashion against the revolution
The Novoe- Vremya was the only paper,
with the exception of the Official Mes
senger, to appear to-day and In the cen
ter of the first page is a half column of
blank paper, showing where the censor
had forbidden an article. The Novoe
Vremya seceded from the Publishers'
Union and was published under the pro
tection of the police and Cossacks.
The Slovo and the Novostl, two other
papers that have not suspended publi
cation, - were unable to appear, as the
printers walked out In obedience to an
order from the Council of Workmen, be
cause these papers refused to print the
manifesto of the proletariat organization.
In addition to the general strike it is
expected that the revolutionaries will
have recourse to the old methods of
fighting the Government. It Is stated
that terrorist organizations held a meet-

Count de Witte's life Is considered to
be in danger and the annex of the palace,
where he Is residing. Is heavily guarded.
The most significant news comes from
Tfiarskoe-Selo, where. In view of the res

down* on the strike, a regular campaign
Is being conducted, with the purpose of
firing the loyalty of the guard regiments.

Fresh Scandal In
volves Steel
Breach of Promise Suit
Against Packer
Causes Stir.
Name of a High Financier
May Be Dragged Into .
the Case.
Special Dispatch to The Call.
PITTSBURG, Dec 17.— Another scandal
Is bubbling and boiling here, involving a
number of United States Steel Corpora
tion and Carnegie Steel Company offi
cials, as the result of Mrs. Mary I. Vet
ter's suit against Gibson D. Packer for
$100,000 for alleged breach of promise. Aa
is usual in all cases' of wealthy . men in
Allegheny County, the papers in the suit
are not in their proper place in the office
of records, and the county officials are
using their official positions to keep the
entire scandal from becoming, public.
Love letters, diamonds and magnificent
presents will form -part of the evidence
offered by the plaintiff.
The Vettcr vs. Packer suit threatens to
bring Into prominence one of the biggest
men interested in the United States Steel
Corporation, for It is this big man who Is
alleged to have introduced Mrs. Vetter,to
Packer eight years ago. This big . man
is now fuming- and fretting because Pack
er did not settle the case with Mrs. Vet
ter. and he is said to have scored Packer
roundly for being 1 mean enough to endan
ger:. his 'poittton-rf or ' the - sake - *of JIOO.OOO:
when he bad-aided Packer in making mil
lions of dollars. *\u25a0.-.,
- Packer was a protege of Andrew. Car
negie and one of his young partners. An
drew Carnegie made him a' millionaire.
When the United States Steel Corpora
tion bought out the Carnegie Steel Com
pany Packer was attached to the law de
partment of . the Carnegie Steel Com
pany. He seldom if ever appeared in the
local courts, and is unknown to the mem
bers of the Allegheny County bar. He is
said 'to have received a princely salary as
head of the Carnegie Steel Company le
gal department.
It Is a fact known in Pittsburg that no
where In this country does there exist
such a nest of scandals as among the set
to which Andrew Carnegie refers as his
"young men."
Mrs. Vetter arrived here yesterday and
has been Indisposed at her hotel. When
asked about her suit against Packer she
said: •.';.. "
"Yes, I <have brought suit against Mr.
Packer for $100,000 damages for breach 1 ; of
promise. He has treated me shamefully.
I have known him for eight years. I.be
came engaged to Mr. Packer two years
ago while in Philadelphia. He had been
paying me attention a long time before
that. • Last February Mr. Packer broke
off the engagement without any apparent
reason, and he declined to marry me.
When he broke off «the engagement I
made a tour of Europe and on my return
lived In New York.; I am here to spend
the holidays and will return to New
York." V "': ._

MEETEETSE, .Wyo.*;. Dec. 17.— A call
for maidens has gone, out to the land. One

country. According to the ; figures of the
State census, just completed, there are
1262 bachelors, mostly desirable, to a mere
handful of 118 maids : of voting age.
Among Ube excess of more than a thou

has undertaken to bring about \ a change
In the conditions in the shortest possible

It Is believed. that .many young^women
who would make; desirable wives 'are; toil

and stores of the big cities simply; because
they have no knowledge of the conditions
here. Articles truthfully depleting' the

NEW YORK, Dec. 17.— The reorganiza

Roosevelt arid Governor Hlggins has been
begun with much turmoil and bitterness.
Platt has been driven from the; field and

subordinates whom; they, made prominent

Of the ultimate l result, the President and
the Governor.on one side, backed by Hhe
\tremendous power of Federal and I State
patronage, and the minor ' bosses, "backed
by the forces of corruption, on the , other;
there is no real doubt that the party! will
