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
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
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

Shotting was renewed this evening.
