They are bright-looking men and each is
Bald to be an expert in the application of
machinery to farming operations. They
are raemberg of a farmers' association,
and were selected by their brother agri
culturists to make this trip.
They speak no English, but are accom
panied by Constantino Krasilnikoff, a
shrewd young: Russian, who lived for ten
years in this city arid talks United States
like a native son. Krasilnikoff left here
three years ago and took up his residence
in Eastern Siberia. He can tell the quar
tet .nothing about agricultural machinery,
but he will act as interpreter and business
agent for the four Molokans.
Krasilnikoff says the farmers of Eastern
Siberia are very prosperous. Through
their association they are able to operate
on a large scale and to handle their pro
duce to the best advantage. They have
UM'd American -.machines and Implements
for years and keep In constant touch with

Terrible Story of Cannibal
ism and 'Destitution Comes
From Chukchis Peninsula
ST. PETERSBURG. March So—Horrible
accounts are reaehlpg St. Petersburg of
qannibaliani- and atarvatiQn among tribes
inhabiting the Arctic plain of the Chuk
ohis peninsula, at -the extremity of. Asia.
Most of the reindeer died of starvation
during the. winter of 1904-05, " leaving tha
Inhabitants without means of communi
cation or food. During ; the last * winter
whole tribes have died, and members of
the Omqlpns and Oloiya tribes, when
facing starvation, assembled in council
and decidied' that : nothins: remained but
death. They agreed tlrat each head of
a family should kill. his. wife and children
and then commit "suicide. \u25a0 The tribesmen
gathered on a plateau covered with snow
and ice, and in the darkness of the Arctic
winter the spartan decision was executed,
not a. single member r of the two tribes
surviving. ,' . '
More revolting still is the story of what
occurred |n a family of the Yukahir tribe.
A mother and nine of her- children died
of hunger,? the father, a -surviving daugh
ter and a nephew- lived upon the remains,
and when they were consumed, ; the father
murdered the nephew. A Russian named
Dolganoff, who went to the region to buy
furs, reported the situation at Yatkutsk,
Siberia, He entered a snow hut of a
Yukahir family while the latter were
eating a . murdered relative.

Report That Jews In Southwestern ftus
. \u0084 '."ula Are .te 'Be Killed. .'•
ST. PETERSBURG; _ March SO.— The
League of Russian Writers has Issued an
appeal to the Russian people to unite in
the- name* of j their consciences ] and salfr
respect to prevent the Jewish massacres
which, they claim, are beyond doubt being
prepared in Southwestern Russia, for Eas
tertide. The' 7 appeal says it ,is not
fancy but fact that- the police and
gendarmes are arranging to let loose the
black- hundred upon the members of. the
poor, helpless ' race. It recalls - that the
Klshineff, Gomel apd Odessa anti- Jewish
outrages were committed at the instiga
tion of Minister of the Interior Plehve,
Chief of Police Neldhardt and Count Pod
gerichanie, Chief of • the Gendarmerie of
Gomel. >Just as in past times, St. Bar
tholomew days were arranged by agents
of the Government," the appeal ; declares,
thef recent proclamations \u25a0 emanating from
the printing* office of the police master, at
St.- 'Petersburg -and that of the military
staff *at> Odessa > leave -up dpubl that*- toe
authorities are privy to • the present pro
paganda: i.The- appeal farther ... declares
that rM**Kalsousky's*book warning . Jews
to leave Russia immediately- or be treated
as- the- Jews were .treated *by. the Span
iards in the middle ages was printed .and
distributed from the offices of the police
masters' of- St. Petersburg and Ekater
inoslav. The League of Writers -claims
to hold '\u25a0 proof that masacres -have been
planned to take place- at Alexandrovsk,
Minsk, Brest, Lltovsk, Rostof-on-Don and
Krementchug. It also points out that the
anti-Jewish . press is spreading insidious
rumors designed to excite i the j ignorant,
instancing specifically the* case of. the
Moscow day, wherein was printed an ar
ticle under the* caption,"' "The Jewish
Easter. is Coming— Take Care of Your
Children," containing the usual horrible
intimation of "blood atonement." i
The appeal asks" how long the Russian
people " will remain idle spectators of ah
Infamy which \u25a0 brings the shame of the
world upon the nation. "None of the non-
Russian peoples oppressed by the Govern
ment suffer so many bloody tragedies as
the Jews," 1 ' the appeal says."* "We know
how Armenians have btein massacred,
how students have been beaten and the
awful treatment to which the' intelligen
cia'arid all fighters "for ' liberty,' have~ been
subjected, but none that compares with
the hatred for Jews, who are perpetually
trembling before a blooay nightmare.
