MSTINCTLY MORI CRITICAL.
Strike Situation in Russia Alsrms the
8t. Petersburg, March 3.—The strike
situation throughout Russia has been 1
rendered distinctly more critical by
the bold demands of the St. Peters
burg workmen, confronting the gov
ernment again with the necessity of i
yielding everything in the face of a
threat or of seeing all hope of a per-,
manent settlement of the strike here
and elsewhere through like agencies
dashed to the ground. But the worst
feature of the situation is that the au
thorities are now convinced that the
leaders of the workmen, in pursuance
of a deep political plan, are managed
by a shrewd hidden agency, which is
deliberately trying to prevent a set
tlement. The authorities seem at their
wits' ends and in the meantime rumors
are again afloat that the action of the
workmen was preliminary to a big
demonstration on Saturday. There
are similar reports of a projected
demonstration of workmen of Moscow
to signalize the emancipation anni
versary. The police apparently do not
know what to expect, but their gen
eral fear of the outcome is based on
the discovery at Moscow and at Wir
ballen, Russian Poland, of quantities
of bombs, many boxes of which have
been smuggled into Russia, and it Is
reported that the demonstrations may
be backed by the use of bombs against

Declares Welfare of Norway Depends
Christiania, March 3.—Crown Prince
Gustave, in his capacity as regent, has
issued a manifesto addressed to the
president of the special committee of
the storthing in which he says the
welfare of the country depends solely
upon union with Sweden.
He lays the strongest injunction up
on the committee to take no action
that would be likely to cause a rupture
between the two countries, adding that
the influence of the crown never had
b.een opposed to Norway having a
separate consular service, the only
condition being that joint foreign re
lations should be so arranged as to
uphold the union of the two countries.
After suggesting a reopening of ne
gotiations with Sweden on broader
lines with a view to maintaining the
equilibrium between the kngidoms the
crown prince points out the great dan
gers lurking in disruption, declares
that he regards the present situation
with the greatest regret and calls upon
the committee to do its duty and meas
oro the consequences very carefully.

his signature those of Representatives

sets out that Adams proved by his
evidence that 60 of the 104 precincts
attacked by Peabody were proven to
