HE NORFOLK WEEKLY NEWS-JOURNAL. NORFOLK , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY , .JANUARY 27. 1JI05. FEELING DECIDEDLY CALMER AND NEWSPAPERS APPEAR. LABORERS RETURN TO WORK Troops Lined the Streets All Night to Protect the Returning Workmen and Patrol la Still Maintained Moscow I * Quiet Again. St Petersburg , Jan. 26 , 12:05 : p. m. The aspect of the city Is almost nor mal Oils morning nnd the feeling Is decidedly calmer. Several nowspa- papers have appeared. The authorities are following up tbo proclamation of last night and are doIng - Ing everything possible to quiet the public alarm. With the troops In the streets dur ing the night in accordance with the promise to protect all workmen who would return to work , the patrol still encircles the big Industrial establish ments. Moscow Is Quiet. Moscow , Jan. 20. The streets nro quiet this morning and the nowspa' pore , with tlio exception of three , re appeared. Trouble at Llbau. Llbau , Jan. 26. Workmen hero are being compelled to leave the factories ! and mlllo by the moro mllftant faction ' of the strikers. The telegraph lines have been damaged. FIRST BLOOD IN FINL/1 'Hy Thirty Persons Wounded by Cot. ' ' at Helslnnfors. Bt. Petersburg , Jan. 26. Contrary to expectation , the first move of the newly appointed governor general of St. Petersburg Is pacific In character. It takes the form of a proclamation , jointly signed by General Trepofl and M. Kokovsoff , the minister of finance , telling the strikers that they have been led Into trouble by evil-disposed persons and that tholr bcstjnterests will bo served by peaceful representa tions to the government. Tbe work men are also assured that the em peror has ordered the framing of cer tain laws for their benefit and the creation of a system of state Insur ance that will protect them from want in case of sickness or disability. The document will be followed eith t er by an imperial manifesto along the same lines , in the hope of preventing W the spread of the strike , or by specific proclamations by the local authorities wherever strikes are In progress. By promising to yield the question ot the hours of labor , which are now loCally - Cally eleven In Russia , the authorities believe they will meet the main griev ance of the workmen. This , together With the guarantee of protection , the authorities hope will Induce those strikers who are indifferent to pojlt- leal demands , and which class They de < clare constitute a great bulk of the men , to resume work. It Is certain many strikers were forced out against their wishes , but the general effect ot the proclamation is problematical. The fears of serious trouble in Mos cow were not realized. The only au thentlcated Instance of anything ap preaching violence there was in the dispersal of a crowd of about 3,000 workmen by Cossacks. So far as la known there was no casualties. From Finland anti-Russian demon etrations are reported , a collision be tween a crowd of 10,000 persons and troops and police resulting in the wounding of about thirty Finns. In Finland the agitation has nothing to do with the labor question , but la purely political in character. If a general movement breaks out among the Finns It Is likely to take the form of an armed uprising , as al most every Finn has a weapon In bis house. Various political , educational and mercantile bodies In Russia are adopting declarations in favor of an elective representative legislative body , and denouncing misrule under tbe autocracy. Thongh the strikes have boon spreading to various towns , the sltua tlon , while disquieting , is not acute anywhere. In several Baltic province towns there has been considerable disorder especially In Riga , where the military ere In complete possession. Sir Charles Hardlnge , the British minister , received from Captain Grove , tbe British consul at Moscow confirmation of the Associated Press dispatch from Moscow announcing the posting of a London telegram 1m putlng tbe disorders to British ant Japanese Influences , and he will ask explanations from Minister Lams dorff today. It Is not expected , bow ever , that the affair will lead to a so rloua diplomatic Incident , and it 1 thought the Russian government wll Blsavow responsibility for the course of Acting Chief of Police Roudenefl The dispatch to Ambassador Hard Inge makes no mention of Roudeneff'i offer to meet Captain Grove. Press Censor is Defied. London , Jan. 20. Some of the Lon Bon morning papers complain tha the Russian censorship of news dls patches has been rolmposod. Thos complaints are quite unjustified. Tba no real censorship la exercises la ov dent from Associated Press and othe dispatches which continue to comment with perfect freedom on tbo political Klluatlon For Instance , the Dally Telegraph's Bt. Petersburg dispatches this morn- ins say. "Russia Is cloven In twain and no human force can weld the parts together. On ono side stands the autocrat , whoso behests are still mechanically fulfilled by his army , which , however , Is a section of the people. On the other hand stands the entire nation , united In the Inten tion to dellvor Itself from a yoke which has now become unbearable" The correspondent declares that In the whole empire there IB but one of ilclal so loathed as TiepofT. and that Is General Klelghels of ICiofT , wlio may yet be minister of the Interior That , the correspondent says , alone proves that the autocracy has de clared war against tbu Russian nation He asserts that auests have been so numerous that the fortiesses and prisons ate overclouded Fighting at Helsingfors. Helslngfois , Finland , Jan. 21 ! . Al though the ciowds on the stieets were smaller , there was seveie light ing , Cossacks and police firing their revolveis. Some thlrfy persons note wounded , ot whom nine were taken to the hospital. " " NEW YORK'S POORER CLASSES FEEL COLD TERRIBLY.
