and to tbe nihilistic propaganda. The lo

ing wmcn many im rioters were killed
and a number of the soldiers were eitber
shot or stoned to death.

The riot en nakllv made such a fierce at
tack upon the troops that tbe latter were
repulsed and driven, to seek shelter in a
position which, they fortified while await

troops were sammnd aad tbe combined

will be dealt with in the severest manner.
It is said the nihilists are spreading their
propaganda in aamilar manner in many
