Fighting Spirit of Polish People Is Fully Aroused—Soldiers Are Cruel —Shoot Women and Children—Thou sands of Men Shot Down—Work man Lead Crowd of 50,000 People. I.odz, June 25.—The city resembles a shambles, and the terrible scenes of the last two days will never be wiped from the memory of Polish peo ple. Altogether ten regiments are en camped In lxidz. The fighting spirit of the people is fully aroused. They bave tasted blood and want more. Certainly the revolutionary spirit is abroad, and It remains to be seen whether military measures will have the same effect as previously. The soldiers are showing what ap pears to be wanton cruelty. Satur day afternoon they shot and killed two women, a mother and her daught er. Since the arrival of reinforcements actual fightiug In the city has stop ped, but the outbreak is by no means quelled, and fresh collisions are ex pected momentarily. It is quite Impossible to give the exact number of killed and wounded, as reports vary according to the quar ter from which they are obtained. Cer tainly the killed number more than 100, possibly 200, and the wounded five times as many. An official report says the number of casualties was largely increased by the neglect of persons to remain indoors. Others who Insisted on looking out of doors and windows when volleys were being fired upon the rioters by the soldiers were taking risks. Residents of the city say that they received no orders to remain Indoors. The present trouble began at Lodz last Thursday after the funeral of the victims ot the conflict between troops and terrorists the previous Sunday. The Christians were permitted to bury their dead, but the Jews were prohibited from doing so, and the police secretly interred the bodies of the Jewß at night, which excited in dignation, and terrorist riots wero ini tiated Thursday. The most serious phases of the riot ing developed when the crowd delib erately pillaged liquor shops, and soon the leaders. Inflamed by drink, led a crowd of at least 80.000 to further and more serious attacks. Police and mil itary were attacked whenever they appeared in small force, and many individual members were killed. After pillaging the liquor shops the crowd set fire to them and prevented the firemen from extinguishing the blaze. This was repeated deliberately at many places. FYlday the fury of found full vent, and even children, caught by the contagion, were seen kissing (lags and heard swearing that they were ready to die for liberty. A Jew ish girl mounted a box In the market square and addressed an Immense throng. Suddenly the police appeared and fired a volley and the girl fell dead. Market gardeners coming In were slain and their carts were used In building barricades. Wires were then Btretched In front of these barricades, and the police were unable to charge. Meanwhile the mob had secured arms, and revolyers were freely used. Final ly the military secured the upper hand, but not without considerable losses to themselves and fearful slaughter to the rioters. The soldiers exhibited the utmost carelessness as to whether tbey kill ed peaceful persons or rioters, and as a consequence many women and children were among the dead. The streets on Friday resembled a battlefield. The houses were barri caded with boards and mattresses, and for hours volleys and Individual shots were heard In every quarter of the city. Until late at night the Cossacks were busy collecting bodies of the dead and picking up persons seriously wounded. The bodies were carried off In carts to neighboring church yards, hence the Impossibility of giving an accurate estimate of the dead until order is completely restor ed, If, indeed, the full story Is ever told. Robbing the Dead. Shotting was renewed this evening. Cossacks are robbing the dead of Jew elry and money. A factory owner named Newmann has been shot by strikers. Today at Baluty, a suburb of Ix>di, four Cossacks were killed and 1G oth er* wounded by a bomb which was thrown into their barracks. Twenty three of their horses were killed. Big Mine* Change Hands. Rossland, B. C.—The news that the Gooderham-Blackstock syndicate had sold out Its control in the War Eagle, the Centre Star and the St. Eugene to a syndicate headed by Messrs. Osier and Matthews of Toronto, who have associated with them in the deal other Montreal and New York capitalists, caused considerable surprise, as it was unexpected at a time when the proposed amalgamation of the mines with the Le Rol was in progress. The reaaon for the sale is the death of George Oooderham and the illness of T. G. Blackstock. A lot of people know nor* than they can Bad out.
