Cossacks Pour Volleys from Rapid-
Fire Guns Into Mob Packed in the
Streets—Those Who Survive Are
Killed with the Sword.
ODESSA, Dec. 2«i.—The Russian
soldiers are unible to overcome the
dauntless spirit of Moscow townspeo
ple, anp despite superior arms, euorm
ous advantage in military training,
and ac omplete supply of all warlike
appliances, the troops are hardly hold
ing their own. Fighting is now go
ing on in every section of the city and
the dead number hundreds--some re-
ports say thousands —and the end is
not in sight.
Terrible slaunher of ths revolution
aries took place during Sund y night
and early Monday, when the terrorists
attempted to capture enormous am
munition factories held by the soldi
eis. By order of General Mistohenko,
the famous Cossack chieftain, who is
now in command ot the garrison, the
artillery was instructed to mount rapid
fire guns in every window on the roof
so as to conmand all avenues of
approach to the storehouses. The
order was given that these rapid firers
were not to be unmasked until the
people actually began breaking into
the structure.
The result was that the mob wns
packed in the open street iv front
when the signal was giv3n to fire.
Immediately bb one all the wooden
shutters fell back and withering vcl
leys were poured into the crowds,
while the guns on the roof were turn
ed on th«» crowd that had been unable
to pet into the immediate vicinity.
The carnage was something fright
ful, according to private advices re
ceived here. The crowd, stunned for
a moment, turned to flee, bat the
firing was|kept up, and eimalraneous
ly there issued from places of oonoeal
ment whole troops of Cossacks, who,
using carbine and sword, swept
through the crowd of panic strickan
fugitives, killing all whom they could
Inside of half an hour people dis
persed, aud it is declared fully 2000
were killed outright and five times
as many wounded.
These reports ot the casualties are
merely conjecture, however, and it is
impossible to Becure any accurate de
tails, as the government controls the

around the revolutionary command
and compei the soldiers to retire from

The days of the Paris commune

be unable to qoell the rioting.
During the last five hours there

by fire. Most of the structures were
owned or ocoupied by loyalists and
the fires have been set by the rovolu
tionistaries, who kept the firemen
from interfering.
