UP TO RUSSIA IN TORMENT HIS NATIVE COUNTRY PIL LAGED, BURNED UP. RUINED: PRISONERS THROWN INTO JAIL EN MASSE; HUNDREDS OP INNOCENT PEOPLE EXE CUTED — HE WARNS BOND BUYERS THAT THEY WON'T GET THEIR MONEY BACK. By Marlen E. Pew. Staff Special to The Press. NEW YORK, March 20. — "The European and American Investors who are now purchasing Russian bonds are not only injuring; the Russian people, but are injuring their own pocket books. In fact I can say with the greatest confi dence that the money used to pur chase bonds will be absolutely lost, for the government will never be in condition to redeem its obligations. "Russia is pillaged, burned up, ruined. The money furnished by the European muyers of Russian bonds merely feeds the Cossacks to set on fire our towns and villages. The whole country is under martial law and thus gives the right to Russian generals to do as they please. "When the end comes, whatever money there may remain In the treasury, given by European bond buyers to aid the government in slaughtering the Russian people, will be seized by the people and used for the benefit of Russia." The sensational statement quot ed, which, if true, would mean the loss of hundreds of millions of In vested capital, is taken from a let ter writted by Maxim Gorky, the famous Russian novelist. The let ter was received by Nicholl Gorky, the adopted son of the great leader, ■who is employed in a publishing house in this city. The Russian budget statement for 1906 showed that it would be secessary to borrow $240.500.000 to balance the estimated receipts and »xpenditures of the stricken nation. The total cost of the Russo-Jap anese war to the czar's domain was §1,050,000,000. It has been reported, denied and teiterated that Count Witto, while In Germany, succeeded in borrow ing $200,000,000 from the Mendel ssohn banking corporation. That amount would just about equal the estimated cost of transporting the Russian troops back from the scene of the war and reducing the army to a peace footmg.
