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.

would mean for them several months
in jail. The others, who are able.to

$5,000, and are in a position to take
the cases into court for a finish fight,
are looked for to appear in court on

THE DAILY PIONEER
Will Not Permit Them to Organize for
Self-Defense,
St. Petersburg, May 23. The o\r-
cular of Interior Minister von Plohwe,
issued on May 17, ascribes the massa
ere of the Jews at KlBhineff largely to
acts of self-defense on tho part of the
Jews, and continued
"The events* at Kishineff have
alarnuni the Jewish portion of the pop
ulation in many regions of the empire
and have occasioned rumors among
the Christians about impending Jew
ish persecutions. In sumo of the citie?
the Jews began forming self-defense
associations. After 1 reported to hi3
majesty about the disorders his maj
esty commanded me to impress upon
the commanders in the provinces and
towns that they are obligated and held
personally responsible to take all the
necessary measures to prevent vio
lence and calm the populace in order
to remove the occasion of fears for
life and violation of property inter
ests.
"After informing your excellency of
these facts I feel it necessary to state
for your guidance that no sort of asso
ciations for self-def?ns can be toler-
ated."
The jews are not inclined to depend
solely upon the police and have armed
themselves in spite of the^ circular
throughout the Jewish belt" Undoubt
edly their action prevented a repeti
tion of Tlfe massacre at Kiev, Odossar
Minsk and elsewhere. The Minsk
Jews are so alarmed that the slightest
outbreak causes a general closing and
barricading of their shops.

RELIANCE DEFEATS COLUMBIA.
Combination of Good Luck and Splen
did Sailing Qualities.
New York, May 23.By a combina

qualities the new cup yacht Reliance

the former cup defender. Columbia, as
she n^ver had suffered^ leading her

mile course off Glen Cove by fourteen
minutes and forty-three seconds, of
ficial time. Not all of the glory of the
victory was fairly earned by the new
boat. If it had been there would
have been no doubt that the Reliance
would be the next cup defender. But
despite the Columbia's ill luck, the Re
liance convincingly showed herself to
be the be****" boat.
