BT. 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. He summons
them under the Inllin'nce of his personality:
they linen, but are poucih-sn to reply, and
when they lake back his words to tho or

Bad News from Interior.
Tho nows from Hie ' Interior shows' thut
there has been little Improvement in the
situation. 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

The political situation is most complex.
Whether the government will be able to

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.

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. The

NEW YORK, Nov. 8. Columbia univer

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: .
"It is useless to say that American
students between J and 21 years of. age
cannot with advantage pursue professional
and, other university subjects of study,
when these are precisely the years when
the students of t'ranee and Germany are

than 3U0 names, Superintendent Davidson
said:
"I feel assured that the members of the

Wane Scale for Janitors.
Member Lindsay sprung a surprise by In
troducing a resolution to direct the com

the next meeting a revision of Janitors'
wages, with a view of equalising them on a
basis of the work performed, rather than
according to the number of rooms occu

Inexact and does not compensate In propor

from Member Cole, he said he did not
know of any salaries among the Janitors
that were in need of reduction.

The Hearst campaign culminated last night
tn a monster meeting at Madisoa Square
Garden, which was marked by an unparal

All Candidates Confident.
Tonight the managers ot the three may-

The belting on the result has been con
