St. Petersburg, Nov. 6. —The whole
structure of tlie autocratic regime is
falling, and Emperor Nicholas no
longer resists. The memorable week
which began with abdication of abso
lutism before a political strike dem
ontsration extending throughout the
confines of the empire, and reducing
the government to impotence, and the
birth of a new and popular regime
amid scenes of disorder, pillage and
bloodshed, ends in a complete surren
der to the aspirations of the Finland
The sad story of the Russification
of Finland began under the regime
of Emperor Nicholas' father, with the
introduction of the Russian postal sys
tem, and attracted the sympathy of the
world. One by one the Finnish grand
duchy was stripped of ancient privi
leges by the Russian administration,
including the gendarmerie, and mili
tary conscription and the use of the
Russian language were introduced.
Finally the Finnish diet became whol
ly emasculated and was powerless, ex
cept to protest.
The Finns fought sturdily, but Rus
sian troops garrisoned every town and
hundreds of prominent Finns were
driven into exile. As with all cities
in Russia, political intrigue and ob
to political criminals of various cat
struction, their only weapons, proved
unavailing. After the issuance of the
imperial rescript of March 3, the Fin
landers managed to wrest some con
cessions. including the restoration of
the Finnish language; and this week
thoy were quick to see and to seize an
opportunity, while all the attention of
the government was engrossed on the
impore proper. They struck and tied
up the railroads over which troops
could be dispatched, and compelled the
emperor's appointed senate to resign
in a body. They organized a militia
in Helsingfors, practically drove the
Russian gendarmerie out of the city,
and sent a deputation to Prince John
Obolensky, the governor general, and
also one to Peterhof to demand the
immediate convocation of the diet in
extraordinary session and the oblit
eration of the whole Russification pol
icy. The situation was so threatening
that the government was obliged to
send warships to Helsingfors and
turn the guns of the fort on the city.
On the advice of Count Witte and
Prince Obolensky, Emperor Nicholas
yielded and signed a manifesto not
only convoking the diet, but giving it
control of the budget and authorizing
an election law providing for universal
suffrage. Another manifesto abro
gates the military and other laws of
The success of the Finnish program
may inspire a similar spirit in Poland.
The manifesto of Emperor Nicholas
granting the demands of the Finns
convokes the diet December 20; abol
ishes the dictatorship; rescinds Gover
nor General Bobrikoff's illegal enact
ments; annuls the manifesto of Feb
ruary 15, 1899, which provides for com
mon legislation for the empire and ail
the laws since then enacted. It an
nounces that the extraordinary diet
now convoked is for the revision of
the diet's electoral basis. The ukase
gives power to elaborate a new system
of representation, based on universal
suffrage and for a report to the ad
ministration which win make it re
sponsible before the diet.
The ukase provides for the formu
lation of laws giving practical auton
omy. The emperor has accepted the
resignation of the entire senate and
has virtually promised to remove the

DURING lAST FISC4L YEAR 6533
QUITE THE SERVICE.
Major General Ainsworth in His An
, nual Report Uevoted Much Atten
! tion to the Subject—Canteen Not
I Likely to Be Restored—Easy and
Luxurious Life of Soldiers Criticized.
Major General r'. C. Ainsworth, the
military secretary, in his annual re
port, devoted much attention to de
sertions lrom the army. Those who
know how the canteen came to be
abolished, he states, are not hopeful
of its restoration; there is no likeli
hood of any such increase in the sol
diers' pay as will offset the greater in
ducement offered in civil pursuits; the
comforts and even luxuries that are
furnished men in our service are even
now criticized by some as being not
only extravagant, but injurious in their
eilect on men whose real business it
is to march and light, encumbered
with few comforts and no luxuries;
and the discipline and instruction to
which the soldier is now subjected are
not likely to be relaxed in the future.
Our people have little real interest
in tne army in time of peace and from
me earliest days of the republic have
been accustomed to look upon it as a
more or less unnecessary institution.
Enlistment in the army in time of
peace is not uncommonly regarded as
evidence of worthlessness on the part
of the recruit.
It is safe to predict that desertions
from the army will continue to be ex
cessive until there shau have been
a radical change of public sentiment
toward the army and until the de
serter shall come to be regarded as
the criminal that he is, to be ostra
cized and hunted down as relentlessly
as any other transgressor of the laws.
There is no reason to look for such a
change of sentiment in the near fut
ure, and there are some who believe
that the change will never come until
our people shall have learned, through
national disaster and humiliation that
the effective maintenance of an army
of professional soldiers is absolutely
essential to the preservation of the na
tional honor and life, and that the
trained and disciplined troops of a
modern enemy can not be withstood by
hastily organized armies of untrained
or half trained civilians.
j The losses in the regular army dur
j ing the fiscal year were: Officers kill
ed in action or died of wounds, disease,
etc., 24; resigned or discharged, 20;
dismissed, 13; deserted, 3; retired, 59;
Enlisted men killed in action or died
of wounds, disease, etc., 377; dis
charged upon expiration of term of
service, 22,254; discharged for disa
bility by sentence of court martial and
[ by order, 9460; deserted, 6533; retired,
| ls9; total, 38,831.
During the year 274 battle flags in
| custody of the war department were
returned to the governors of the states
in which the regiments that bore them
were raised. He says there still re
main here 452 of these flags.
General Ainsworth recommends that
these union flags be transferred to the
United States Military academy, and
that the confederate flags be given to
