NED $75,000,000 FOR RELIEF.
LONDON", Dec. 6.?The St. Peters
burg correspondent of the Daily Hall
says thai the Swede, Lldval. whose
name has been mentioned In connec
tion with the famine relief scandal. It
known In Nljnl Novgorod, as the own
? of a gambling home where the wild
est debauches' apcurred, and' where
women of the lowest character haunt1
ed the saloons. >
It seems to be Increasingly evfdenl
that LJIdval was the willing tool of a
court clique, who feathered theii
nests with relief .money.
Twenty Million People May Starve.
Princes G. E. Lvoff.and Orbellanl
the representatives "of the Moscow
ZemBtvo famine relief organization
who have just returned from the
stricken districts, hnve furnished the
following facts regarding the condi
tlons In the famine provinces:
The crops in the seven provinces ol
Samara, Saratov, Seinblrsk, Kazan,
I'enza, Tambov and Ufa were practl
cally total failures. In twenty-one
r.?n..lB(.oo ?1vo hnrvonts voro vftrv noor.
About twenty million people will need
assistance for from four to ten mouths
to stave ofl starvation until the new
crops are available. The destitution
Is less Intense than it was in 1891. In
some regions the Inhabitants have
heen suffering from starvation for ten
years, passable crops having been
gathered in only two out of the ten
years. Prince Lvoff believes the govcnment
estimate of 150,000,000 for famine
relief is inadequate. The Moscow
Zemstvo relief organization calculates
that $70,000,000 and possible
more will be necessary.
Girls Sold Into Slavery. ..
On the strength of his .personal
knowledge Prince Lvolf reaffirmed the
truth of the report lately officially
denied that girls In Kazen province
htid heen sold into slavery and taken
t<> .Mohammedan harems in the Caucasus.
He said the sales were masked
tinder the guise of catering domes
tic service, out mat uia uut aucca mr
troth of the first statements made.
Hundreds of families In the Volga
province, the prince added, were flockIntr
l" the already overpopulated
towns.

' lag to tbe stories told by those vho ,

( (or the excursion from Morgantow$
; to Washington and retnrn on Thanks- j
_ siting day, the Baltimore and Oljto *
roalroad did not play fair with the ''
promoters of the excursion and those *
who guaranteed the sale of thrqe hun
dred tickets at (3 each. It Is alleged
that the railroad aiccepted mileage .
1 from about 50 persons vho.took the ,
trip, and for this reason, the excur- J
slon was short shout one-third of the J
1 number required in the guarantee. '
When the sales of the tickets, for *
the excursion were audited, it was
found that only about two hundred !
tickets had been sold. By nctuut
count it was shown that there were .
more than 260 people on the train.
None of these people rode free, and "
It developed later that mileage had *5
* *? - ' - J
ben accepted tor me trip, iuuv
was no mention made ot mileage In ]
tbe agreement. Tbe railroad, of .]
course, had a right to accept the ,j
mileage, but it Is the opinion of those ,
who were Interested In promoting the "j
excursion at least that all persons "?
who gave mileage for their transpor- 4
tation should he counted in making =
up the three hundred. The mattor ?
has been taken up with the B. and 0.
authorities and it is thought the arrangement
can ho made.
The guarantors of tbe excursion lost
