REVOLT IN CROATIA SPREADING OVER THE KINGDOM AND THREATENS DAL- MATIA. GONFLICT WITH THE TOLICR CROWD ATTACKED WITH SABERS AND OVER 350 ARRESTS MADE. LONG STANDING RACE HATRED THOUSANDS OF PEASANTS AT- TEMPT TO PREVENT ARRIVAL OF TROOPS. Vienna, May 23. The revolt ia Croatia ia spreading jto every paiyof the titular kirgdom and threatens to extend to Dalmatia. The celebrations at Agram yester day of the anniversary of th 3 death of Jellachici von Buzlm, the former ban of Croatia, culminated in a fierce con-' flict -with the police, who attacked the crowds with sabers, wounding many persons and making 330 arrests, in cluding several students and women. The city of Agram is completely under military rule. The principal streets are closed by cordons of troops. Four regiments, fully equipi, Kl for. war, have been ordered to proceed from Oedenbarg to the Agram district. At Buccal, and Meja thousands of peasants attempted tc destroy the rail road in order to pi^vent the arrival of troops. They tore up the rails at four different points, and when the mili tary arrived the peasants Pelted Them With Stones, injuring several soldiers. The troops retaliated by shooting and bayonetting many of the peasants. The disturbances in Croatia are pri marily due to the long standing race hatred becween tM Slavs and the Magyars. The present outbreak has two main sources first, the general discontent of the peasantry arising from the extreme poverty prevailing .everywhere, and from the fact that in parts of the country the peasants are on the verge of famine second, the in dignation aroused by the alleged ty rannical rule of Count Khun Heder vary, the present ban of Croatia. The Croatians attribute much of their poverty to the financial methods of the Hungarian government, which is accused of drawing from Croatia money in excess of its legal propor tion of the taxes in spite of the pro tests of the inhabitants.
