PLUMED Blf HEAD
OFFICIALS IW RUSSIA
Death of Lad in Russia is Laid
to Doors of Israelites Who
. Were Engaged in Celebrating
the Feast of the Passover.
HY WILLIAM G. SHEPHERD.
LONDON. July 2 3. I have a story
from exiled Nihilists in Iondon which
proves that the Middle Ages have not
yet passed in Russia that black spot
of the 'civilized" side of the world.
Tliis month Mendel Reilts, a clerk,
who has Iain in jail two years at
Kiev, Russia, will be put on trial for
the murder of a boy named Alexan
der Yuchinski. Every effort has been
made by the Russian otllcials in the
district to prove that the killing was
u ritual murder a blood sacritlce
and that a band of Jews drained the
blood of the boy and distributed the
blood in bottles from synagog to syn-
This is the story of the Yuehir.ski
case, as I have iu first hand, from
Russian Nihilists, who are not Jews
and who have been exiled from Rus
sia simply because they have tried
.to lead their country out of its black
ness. Story of Murder.
On April 1. 1911. the body of Alex
ander Y'uchinski. 12. was found in a
cave on the outskirts of Kiev, Russia.
There were 4 5 wounds on tho body,
all apparently mado with a small
chisel. .M. Krassovsky, the chief of
detectives at Kiev, traced the murder
to a gang of thieves, to which rela
tives of the murdered boy belonged.
Ho endeavored to arrest members
of the gang, but the government
prosecutor would not permit this ac
tion. Suddenly cards and pamphlets ap
peared on the streets of Kiev, with a
rough drawing of the body, marked
with its wounds. And the local gov
rrnment newspaper. "The Two-Head -
cj Eagle", appeared with the direct
charge that the Jews had killed little
Alexander for his blood!
"Orthodox Christians," said the pa
per, "keep an eye on your children
tor the Jewish passover i.- at hand!"
Imagine a newspaper making such
a statement In the twentieth century!
M. Krassovskv was Instructed to
work on the theory that Jews had
killed the boy. He was practically
forced to arrest Mendel Reilis on the
testimony of one of the thieves' gang
that some of the boy's garments had
been found in Beilis rooms. Rut as
soon as possible Krassovsky permit
ted Beilis to go free and again he
went to work io secure evidence that
the thieves had killed the boy to pre
vent his making public th ir crimes.
Charge Trumyed lp.
M. Kru-sviovsky was thereupon re
moved from his oltice j.nd was arrest
ed on a trumped-up charge. A new
chief was put in power a chief who
would follow out the ritual murder
The government, to strengthen the
case, secured the opinion of some
anti-Jewish fanatics to testily that
two Jews had told him all about
"ritual murders'. They had con
fessed, he said, that th ; Jews in Rus
sia, at passover time, made it a point
to secure the blood of Christian boys,
"to be used in making passover
"If the blood Is secured under great
ditliculties," he said, "the Jews are not
forced to follow any rites or cere
monies in obtaining it. But, if the
capture of the bey has been secret,
and a ceremony can be safely allowed,
the custom," he testified, "is to tor
ture the victim as long as possible
and obtain from his wounds every
drop of blood that his weakening
heart can pump."
News Reached Outside.
Jews outside of Russia began to
take an interest in the case. In some
clever manner, the documents of the
two inquests which were held on the
boy, were stolen at Kiev and reached
the hands o2 rich Russian exiles in
England. These documents were sub
mitted to boards of medico-legal ex
perts In Germany, France and Eng
land and al those boards declared
from the evi ence that the boy had
not been tortured and that his blood
had not been taken from his body.
One of the English experts was Dr.
W. H. "Willcox of the home ortice, who,
by his remarkable criminal analysis,
proved that Dr. Crippen murdered
"The boy was killed almost in
stantly, by two blows on the head,"
he reported, in effect. "There was no
torture and no blood-letting, and
there is every evidence that the crime
was committed by an insane man or a
man temporarily mad with anger."
In Kieve now, as a preliminary to
the trial, little pamphlets are being
circulated by the thousands to pros
pective jurymen. The title of these
is "All That a Juryman Should Know
About Ritual Murders". Tho alleged
"ritual murder" is described fully.
In England a great protest against
the "blood accusation" charge in
Russia has been signed by such men
as the Archbishop of Canterbury,
Ixml Rosebery, Austen Chamberlain,
A. J. Balfour and scores of univer
sity professors, doctors and scientists.
