CONFLICT IS EXPECTED
Between Rntslan Troops and Revolu*
tlonlsts at St. Petersburg.
THE STRIKERS ARE DETERMINED.
Many Shops Closed and Food Has
Mounted to Famine Prices — Mon-
ster Meeting Held at University by
St. Petersburg, Oct. 30. — The last
link of the railroads binding the capi-
tal with the outer world was broken
late at night when the Finland rail-
road suspended service between St.
Petersburg and the Finnish border.
Telegraphic communication Is still
open but there is still a possibility
that the cable operators may be com-
pelled to join a general strike of tele-
graphers. Up to the present there is
a total absence of disorder.
. St. Petersburg.—It is reporled that
many persons were injured during
the dispersal of a meeting at Novoch-
erkass, the capital of the province of
the Don Cossacks.
St. Petersburg. — That the present
situation cannot end without blood-
shed is the conviction prevailing in
tho higher government circles, which
from moment to moment are expect-
ing a conflict between the troops and
the revolutionists in St. Petersburg
and news of trouble in the provinces,
especially at Kharkoff. The govern-
or of Kieff has been instructed to take
all necessary measures to restore or-
der, which the local government and
the commander of the troops are un-
able to maintain. One of the most
prominent members of the council re-
ceived the Associated Press repre-
sentative and said:
“The situation is a grievous and a
painful one, and I see no way out of
it except by the employment of armed
force. Please do not misunderstand
me. I look upon the prospect with
tears, but it is becoming more and
more evident that the troops will be
compelled to fire. I can see no oth-
er possible outcome. The revolution-
ists and terrorists are absolutely bent
on forcing a coniiict upon us, and
nothing we can do will satisfy. The
extension of the suffrage and the right
of assembly will be nothing to them.
They are determined to have blood-
shed. and we cannot avoid the issue.
It is a frightful disease from which
Russia is suffering, and, sad and pain-
ful as it is, the government must act
The minister said that the law cre-
ating a responsible cabinet will prob- |
ably be promulgated and Count
Witte’s nomination as premier an-
nounced. i'nder the statute the
premier may or may not hold a special
portfolio. Witte spent almost the en-
;tire day with the emperor at Peter-
Jiolf. and he has not confided to his
cdlieagues whether he intends to take
the ministry of the interior or the
ministry of finance, or no portfolio at
all. The whole of the ministerial body
Is also in ignorance as to whether I

A remarkable feature of all the
.speeches was the spirit of complete
Confidence that the success of the
movement was at hand, and the mani-
festation as the minister quoted in the
first part of this dispatch, was to force
an armed conflict upon the govern-
ment. The meetings continued far
inlo the night. In the city, in spite
,of the absence of disorders, there is
ja condition of actual panic. Half of

Wealth Lady, 80 Years old, Disappears
From New York.
New York. Oct. 30. — With $13,000
worth of jewelry and a large sum of
money in her possession. Mrs. Mar-
garet Todd, a very wealthy woman. 80
years old, left the Hoffman apartment
house, 29 West. Twenty-sixth street,
which she owned and where she lived,
saying that she was going to visit
friends in East Orange, N. J. Later
when it was learned that she had not
reached her destination the police
were requested to look for her.
The mystery of her disappearance
was cleared up. when a dispatch was
received from Philadelphia stating
that a woman identified as Mrs. Todd
had been found frightfully mangled
beside the tracks of the Philadelphia
& Reading railroad, near Kairmount
Park, and had died in the hospital.
How Mrs. Tood met with the accident
or how she happened to be in Phila-
delphia is not known.

candles or kerosene lamps for light,
while the street lamps In a large part
of the city havo been extinguished.
The streets practically are deserted
except for the squads of Infantry and
cavalry, which aro everywhere.
The shops began to close In the af-
ternoon in the Morskala, Nevsky and
other central streets. Many of the In-
habitants shut themselves in their
houses, scarcely venturing out to
make necessary purchases of food,
which has mounted to famine prices.
The scene Inside tho university
beggars description. In the great open
air court, with no light except a few
flickering candles on a hastily con-
structed tribune, from -1,000 to 5,000
workmen, students and professional
men stood wedged together in the cold
and wet snowfall, listening to revo-
lutionary harangues. Another great
meeting was held in the central hall
of the university and scores of similar
meetings of the separate trades and
professions were held in the other
rooms of the building. Halls were set
aside for teachers, physicians, bank
clerks, journalists, printers, pharma-
cists, women, engineers, lawyers, tail-
ors and persons of other callings and
trades, and a room was even set aside
for non-command officers of the army,
but only a half dozen of those were

St. Petersburg Cut Oif.
Moscow, Oct. 31.—With its capital
in a state bordering on panic and iis
ancient capital city, Moscow, engag-
ed in the formation of a government
to act independently of the imperial
authorities, the Russian empire con-
fronts a situation that is alarming and
is hourly becoming more grave. Com-
munication between St. Petersburg
and Moscow was broken off, so that
what is transpiring there is not known.
The day passed up to evening with-
out disorder at St. Petersburg, but at
Gomel a bomb was exploded and the
chief of police and two soldiers were
wounded. Martial law was proclaim-
ed at Kharkoff, where 15 victims of
the recent demonstrations were bur-
ied. Warsaw was patrolled by troops,
and dispatches from Ashkabad and
Irkutsk announced the extension of
tho strike to Asiatic Russia. In Reval

REACHED NO AGREEMENT.
Chicago, Oct. 30. — Both conven-
tions of the Interstate Commerce Law
League adjourned sine die. without
making any effort at reconciliation,
and as a consequence there will be
two regularly organized bodies work-
ing in the interests of railroad rate
legislation. The title of the new asso-
ciation, after much discussion, was
selected as the Federal Rate Regula-
tion Association. N. W. McLeod, the
temporary chairman of the anti-con-
vention, was elected president, and an
| executive board of vice-presidents
I from the different states represented
was elected by different states and
ratified by the convention as a whole.
The purposes of the new organiza-
tion, as outlined by the president, and
by G. X. Wentling. of San Francisco,
are to be the same as that of the regu-
lar body, except that the views of the
regular body are not to be followed as
set forth in the resolutions.
Besides the board of vice-presidents
President McLeod was authorized to
select a hoard of twelve delegates at
large to formulate the by-laws and
rules of the association.
Famine at Lodz.
Cate Seemed Htipelesa but Yielded to
Dr. Wllliama’ Pink Pilla.
Mr. Kenney has actually escaped from
the paralytic’s fate to which hoseeumjia
short time ngo hopelessly doomed. The
surprising report has been fully verified
and some important Hetails secured in a
personal interview’ with the rcceut sitf-
"The doctor," said Mr. Kenney, "told
me that if I wanted to live any length
of time I would have to give up work al-
together, and he told my friends that
the paralysis which hud begun would iu
time involve my whole body."
"Just how were you alllicfed at this
time?” Mr. Kenney was asked.
" Well, I had first hot, and I ben cold
nnd clammy feelings, and at times my
body felt- as if ueedles were being stuck
into it. These sensations were followed
by terrible pains, and again I would have
no feeling at all, but a numbness would
come over me, and I would not be able to
move. The most agonizing tortures came
from headaches and a pain iu the spine.
“ Night after night I could not get my
natural sleep and ray system was wrecked
by the strain of torturing pains and the
effect of tho opiates 1 was forced to take
to induce sleep. As I look back on the
terrible suffering 1 endured during this
period I often wonder how I retaiuecfiuy
reason through it all.
“ But relief came quickly when I
was induced to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People. Tho very first box
seemed to help me, and seven boxes made
me entirely well. There can be no doubt
about the thoroughness of my cure, for I
have worked steadily ever since and that
is nearly four years.”
Mr. Kenney is at present employed by
the Merrimac Hat Company mid resides
at 101 Anbiu street, Ameslmry, Mass.
The remedy which he used with such
satisfactory results, is sold by all drug-
gists, or direct by the Dr. Williams

him to convert the farcical national assembly
into a real legislative body elected by greatly
extended suffrage and to confer upon the peo-

Those welcome tidings reached St. Peters-
burg shortly before 0 o’clock this evening.
Count Witte bad spent the day with the em-
peror at Peterhof, going over the final draft of
the manifesto to which he insisted that certain
minor modifications be made, and before tak-
ing the train for St. Petersburg lie telephoned
to a friend that the emperor had affixed his sig-
nature and that the imperial mandate compris-
ing the conditions upon which lie had agreed
to accept office was in his pocket.
These include freedom of the press, the right
of assembly and the immunity of the person,
including the right of habeas corpus.
An official announcement will be issued this
evening appointing Count Witte prime min-
ister with special authority to co-ordinate and
unify the powers of the different branches of

Telegraphic communication with St. Peters-
burg appears to be improving. A dispatch re-

Travelers from Berlin are able to reach St.
Petersburg in sixty hours going by way of Stet-
tin-, Sassinz, Stockholm and Ilangoe, and thence
to Viborg and St. Petersburg.
Count Witte insisted on a cabinet on the
British model with a selected premier respon-
sible to the imperial douma, or parliament,
while the emperor clung to the appointment of
the members of the cabinet on the American
plan by the emperor as chief of state.
The state department lias instructed Charge
<T Affaires Eddy in ease of emergency to give
American citizens asylum at the embassy and
if necessary to charter a steamer.
Foreign Minister Lamsdorff is reassuring
the ambassadors by formally guaranteeing the
safety of foreign residents. Tie announces that
the government is prepared to afford them mili-

SHREWDNESS OF A CABMAN.
Was Left a Fortune by an Eccentric
English exchanges tell of a young
cabman in Birmingham who attract-
ed the notice of an eccentric old lady
because of his resemblance to her
dead son. She bequeathed to him the
bulk of her fortune on condition that
he went to college and did all he could
to become a gentleman. Being quick
and clever, he had no difficulty in ac-
quiring a sufficiency of Greek and
other learning, but he shrewdly sus-
pected that if he went to either Ox-
ford or Cambridge at once he would
not feel at home among his new com-
panions. So, putting pride in his
pocket, he obtained a place as “scout,”
or servant, at one of those scats of
learning and profited so much by
what he saw and observed in this
humble position that when he eventu-
ally proceeded to the other university
as a student he was able to pass
