PETERSBURG, Nov. .-The official Messenger print! thin morning another strongly worded appeal for confidence It bears Count Wltte's remarks, hints strongly that the empire Is threatened with dismem berment unless the people rally to its sup port and draws attention to the different character of the representations with which the government Is being besieged to quell the exciting disorders in the country, some of them complaining of the seal of the troops and others Of their Inaction, some suiting for military protection and others for the entire removal of the soldiers. "Al though It is Impossible In every case," the note says, "to diagnose the true cause of the conflicts, it is clear that their origin generally Is the hostility aroused among the ' different classes of the population. Those who ure dissatisfied with the mani festo provoke the Indignation of those who received tt with gratitude, leading to at tacks and counter-attacks, all of which could be avoided if the people only had con fidence that the reforms set forth in the Imperial manifesto will be executed. Dis orders accomplish nothing and only delay the reforms which are designed to give the people a representative assembly In which to settle their differences. .The duty of every faithful subject of the emperor iff to aid In the pacification of the country. Depends oa Press. "In particular," the note concludes, "the government reckons on the support of the press,' which must understand that In the present situation a union of the intellectual forces of the whole -nation Is necessary," The tactics of the opposition, according to the Ruse, will be peaceable. They will take the form of demonstrations to com pel the' government to redeem Its promises and meet ' the wishes of the people.. The paper claims that even Count Wilts falls to comprehend the forces with which lie Is dealing, "which consist of unions and leagues representing organised distrust." Continuing, the Buss nays: There are no leaders, and Count Wltto's efforts to bring Individuals Into his ramp are therefore unavailing.

In some places disorders have recommenced with redoubled fury. The horrible . story of massacre at Odessa is not fully known here. In the Caucausus the Tartar and Russians are cutting each other's throats and the Armejilans are giving themselves nip to pillage and incen diarism. From .Bachmul, Bessarabia, comes an entirely new tnle of revolt. A three days' attack on the.. Jews was begun Thursday, with every Indication of police organisa tion. Jerwlsh students were beaten, tho Jewish Mores in the markets were sacked during the day and during the night tho plunder fit residences commenced. Troops arrived on the ' scene, but the following day the work ot pillage was resumed be fore the! eyes of the soldiers and police. The prayers of th hunted Jews for mercy were unavailing. Toward noon the torch wss applied to stores . and houses. The police would not permit the Jews to fight the firs and the troops were withdrawn. Then the pillage began afresh. . It was temporarily stopped Saturday morning through' the efforts of the Russian peas ants, but the police spread falsa reports. which aroused the mob, and there was a renewal of the work of plunder and mas sacre. Tho losses are said to be In the million of dollars. A telephone message from Moscow says the Jews are terror stricken with fesr of a massscre there. Many of them have abandoned their lodg ings and are sleeping In the bouses of friends, Sltaattoa Complex. The political situation is most complex. Whether the government will be able to out rids tba popular storm Is problematical, for Count Witts will have a harder task in making peace with the Russian people than he bad with Japan, in the midst of the confusion following the abdication of sbso lutlsm there has not yet been time for a WOMEN PETITION THE PREMIER Wives of Mea Oat of Work Make Appeal to British Premier. - f LONDON, Nov. S. The desperate condl tion of the people of London wss brought to the notice of Premier Balfour today by a remarkable deputation of the wives and other women relatives of the unemployed, who did not hesitate to tell the premier unless something is speedily done to lessen their sufferings there will be bloodshed. 1't forget that hungry men are des- ' men." said one of the speakers. All he same tale to tell of husbands out f irk and stsrving wives and children. 4 pinched faces and tattered clothing e womon, some of whom had babies ielr arm, bore eloquent testimony of xuth of their complaints. Enormous ds of women from all parts of London Mied through the streets, headed by 1 itatlon which Mr. Balfour received at office of the local government board, is "Marseillaise" was heard as the pro Hon advanced, perhaps the first time It was ever heard under such circumstances In the streets of London. Only thirty of the women were admitted to the presence of Mr. Balfour. The pre mler was very sympathetic. He acknowl edged . that the evil was very real but he had little to suggest In the way of allevia tion except an expression of hope that pullc charity would come to the aid of the unemployed. He deprecated the socialistic suggestion that industries should be started at the national expense for the benefit of the unemployed as calculated to destroy the springs of enterprise and energy of the nation. At the close of Mr. Balfouri 'speech of despair," as the delegates de scribed It, Mrs. Crooks, wife of William Crooks, a labor party member of the house of commons, and several other women ex cltedly Invited Mr. Balfour to come and live among them for a few months. The premier remarked that he was quite aware that nothing he had suld could bo other than disappointing. They had his genuine sympathy and he felt most acutely the magnitude of the evil from which they were suffering. A mass meeting of the women was held in the afternoon to' hear the report of the delegation. Mr. Crooks, M. P., and others made speeches. Mr. Crooks said that Mr. Balfour's reply to the delegation was un worthy of the premier of a great country, The mention of Mr. Balfour's name was greeted with a storm of hisses. Mr. Crooks added that they had started an agitation whath would not cease until every man who wanted work was supplied with suf ficient to support his wife and children, The speaker urged his hearers to continue the agitation. He said that a' revolution In England would not be behind the revo lution In Russia In securing the demands of the people. The meeting unanimously adopted a resolution to continue the fight for the employment of ths unemployed and the meeting broke up amid uproarious scenes and the singing of the "Marsell laise," ' . BRIDGE OPEN 10 ALL ALIKE United 8tatai Eutrsmo Court Dooitei in Faror of Great Weitin, OTHER ROADS MAY USE THE STRUCTURE Not Oaly Those Holding Contracts, bat Others Mar Cross by Paying Reasonable Compensa tion for Service. WASHINGTON, Nov. . The supreme court of the United Elates today In the case of the Union Pacific Railroad Company against the Mason City gt Fort Dodge Railroad Company, affirmed the decree of the circuit court of appeals for the Eighth circuit. The case Involved the right to the ure of 'the railroad bridge across the Missouri river at Omaha. , By this final decision ths Union Pacific Is compelled to accord the use ot the bridge and its approaches to other com panies, upon payment of reasonable com pensation, providing such use does not interfere with the work of the Union Pa cific This admits to use of the bridge not only roads with which the Union Pacific has made contracts, (abrogated by a later management), but to the Mason City sc Fort Dodge railroad. The decisions of the lower courts were based on tho contracts. The supreme court holds that the decision of the lower courts upholding the validity of the contracts was also an adjudication of the right of the roads under the statutes. Sustains an Eight-Hour Law. The supreme court of the United States today affirmed the decision of tho supreme court of Missouri, maintaining the validity of the Missouri law making eight hours a legal day's work in the mines. The case in point was that of "Cuntwcll, et al., against Missouri." Regarding the Union Pacific bridge de cision, Judge McHugh said that he had had no word from Washington, but if the finding of the lower court was sustained it would give the Great Western and any other railroad the right to use the bridge, the union station and the tracks to South Omaha. Judge Kelly said that he had heard noth ing from the case and could not say how far the decision went. Local interest in the case has not been very keen as it was accepted as a foregone conclusion all along the case would end just as It did. THE LAW ON MACHINE VOTING Section 19. .

WASHINGTON, Nov. t-An open break between Greece and Roumsnla will, ac cording to private Information received In this city, soon make the dangerous situa tion In the Balkans still more complicated. During the beginning of the last month Greece recalled Its diplomatic representa tive from Bucharest, and Roumsnla was thereby forced to withdraw Its minister from Athens. The Immediate cause for the breach was the fact that the sultan recog nized tho Independence of the Koetso Wallachs, a people living near the Greek border In Macedonia, which numbers per haps 100,000. They belong to the Rou reanlan race, but were claimed by the Greeks to be under the command of the Greek patriarch in Constantinople. Accord ingly bands were formed on the Greek frontier and expeditions sent among the Koetso-Wallachs to fore the latter to ac knowledge themselves to be Greeks and to register that way, during the census, then being taken In the Ottoman empire.

Columbia univer sity last year received money gifts amount ing to n,9()0,000 and had an enrollment of 4.981 Btudents, according to the annual report of President Nicholas Murray Butler. President Butler said of Columbia's new study program, whereby a student may graduate after three years or may take more than four years to cover the same ground: "It breaks up the lockstep theory system of unirorm annual promotions from class to class." Under this system the requirement for graduation is the completion of a prescribed number of hours of work. Ittnay even be possible. President Butler says, for an un usually advanced student to graduate In less than three years. In this same con nection he says: .
