RUSSIAN REVOLUTION IS LAID TO
PRO-GERMAN TREASON AT COURT
Dawning of a New Russia Seen
Rule of the Romanoffs Duma's Long Struggle for Liberty
Meets With Success Rasputin, the "Mad Monk,"
Blamed for Fall of the Czar.
New York. How pro-German trea
son In the government anil the court
brought about tho revolt In Itussla was
described hero by Herman Hernsteln,
editor of tho American Hebrew, and
ono of tho best Informed men on ltus
slan conditions, in this country. He
"The revolution In ItUHsIa may be
tho bitterest, bloodiest uprising of a
people In the history of tho world.
"If tho army is fully intormco 01
it, nnd follows Its dominant inclina
tion which I believe Is toward ue-
poslng the reactionary, autocratic
and pro-German elements at retro
grad the revolt has great chances of
success, and a new llusola may
emerge from tho turmoil.
"For natriotle reasons tne iinerais
in tho duma have been upholding the
hands of the Itusslan government dur
ing tho war. They hnvo prevented
general strikes, thoy have held back
their followers among tho people from
uprising while tho wnr was going on.
They have done everything In tnelr
power to nld the government, lnstend
of opposing It as they did lu peaco
Hut this was not appreciated by
the reactionaries nnd tho court clique,
which Is of German origin and holds
pro-German sentiments, nnd which for
u long time has been seeking a sepa
rate peaco with Germany.
'And so theso elements succeeded
n having tho czar issuo n ukase order
ing tho duma to dissolve. Hut tho lib
eral members of tho duma refused to
bo quieted, nnd, being pressed beyond
tho limit of what they could stand for,
thoy allowed tho revolution, which long
was brewing, to como to a head.
Forced to Extremes.
'This revolution means tho ruling
powers In ltusslu so lost their heads
and went to such extreme lengths they
forced tho people, represented by tho
liberals, to go also to extreme lengths.
"Conditions In Itussln recently hnvo
been terrible nlmost beyond belief.
Tho food situation and tho trans
portation situation have been ex
"Thero havo boon no railroad cars
to carry food supplies to tho armies
at tho front, and no enrs to carry
wounded men back from tho front.
Yet It has been proved beyond doubt
wcnlthy Russian merchants, by brib
ing tho proper olllclals, could got nil
tho cars thoy wanted for their prlvato
"This matter has been brought to
tho pcoplo's attention by tho liberals
In tho duma.
"Their speeches have not been al
lowed to get out of Russia becauso
of tho censorship, but thoy havo been
published thero, and havo been re
peated by word of mouth, so that most
of tho civilian population and most
of tho army, I believe, by now have
heard of tho outrages.
"Theso speeches, It will bo under
stood, not only aroused tho people nnd
tho soldiers, but also brought down
upon tho liberals the wrath of tho gov
ernment. It was lu an effort to stifle
such utterances, apparently, that tho
order dissolving tho duma was Issued.
"Among tho soveral reasons why the
czar and tho court cllquo have been
favorably Inclined toward a separate
peaco with Germany Is this one, that
Germany has promised Russia In the
ovont of such u pence being concluded
to help Russln lu quelling any rebel
lion of tho peoplo that might arise
In tho future. Tho peoplo of Russia
havo constantly been growing stronger,
tho stilfllcrs lu tho army havo been
gaining In education nnd broadening
by fighting alongside tho more 1
democratic Frenchmen and English
men, and altogether tho power of the
small court classes has been more nnd
moro threatened. This has led them to
fear for their future unless they al
lied themselves with a monarchical
nntlon llko Germany.
Czar Owns Pro-German Paper.
"Early lu tho wnr tho czar and tho
Grand Duke Is'leholns had a confer
ence, In tho course of which the grand
duko warned tho czar that If ho (tho
czar) continued to exhibit Indications
that ho desired a separate peaco with
Germuny ho would 'have a torrlblu
revolution on his hands.'
"'And who will lead this revolution?'
tho czar Inquired.
'"I will lend It with tho nrmy,' re
plied the grand duke.
"It was shortly after this Nicholas
wan displaced from tho high com
mnnd of tho Russian nrmlca and was
Bent to an obscure position, while tho
czar himself assumed charge.

Struonlo for Liberty.
Tho struggle of tho Russian duma
ior national liberty began In 1005,
as the Result of Shaking Off of
Tho first pnrllament was a direct
outcome of tin' revolution of 1005,
which followed tho war with Japan.
The cznr found himself confronted
with an almost solid body of liberals.
The dumn of 1005, the most radical
of uli, Insisted upon the czar's living
up to the promises of his manifesto
granting freedom to Russln. Hut tho
czar's premier, Stolypln. would not
countenance any Interference on the
part of tho duma In government af
fairs. This led to tho dissolution of
the first Russian parliament.
Tho second duma was convened
early In 1007. The government did
Its best to securo n largo numbor of
reactionaries In it. IJut the great
majority of the new deputies were
still too progressive for Stolypln.
Clashes soon followed. Tho govern
ment arrested a number of deputies
and exiled them to Siberia. Tho duma
was then dissolved.
Tho duma made an unsuccessful at
tempt at n revolution. More than n
hundred deputies left Petrograd for
Finland. Then an appeal was Issued
to the nation to stand up for tho
dumn. The nppenl, however, met with
llttlo response. The peoplo werb en
tirely under the control of tho military
and tho government.
A new election law was then pro
mulgated by Premier Stolypln. This
inw barred most of the people from
participation In tho elections.
War Makes Changes.
Tho third duma was then assembled
nnd the government found n majority
of conservatives In it. Theso con
servatives wero satisfied to let things
alone. At tho expiration of Its term
In 1012 a fourth duma, the present
body, was convened. Beforo tho wnr
It .was entirely controlled by tho con
servatives. Tho war, however, has
made theso conservatives progressives.
Tho Taurlda palace, tho house
whero tho Russian duma meets, has
become tho birthplace of the now pro
visional government, nnd Is ono of tho
most Interesting structures In Rus
sia. On Its site moro thnn n century
and a qunrter ago stood tho house of
Prince Potemkln, tho favorite o: Cath

Russia Before the "Deluge."
In his serial Illodor has drawn u
striking picture of tho Russia "beforo
tho deluge." It Is a picture that de
picts the degeneracy of tho Russian
court, of tho unheeded voices of tho
people asking for food nnd Justice, -jl
graft and license on every side, of u
cznr weak-kneed, foolish, pitiful, the
tool of his sycophants, believer In
mysticism nnd In tho center of this
most dramatic stage of centuries stood
Rasputin, the untutored, unkempt, re
ligious mystic from Slberln, who by
his hypnotic power over tho cznr nnd
tho czarina was able to make nnd un
mnke ministers, laugh ut tho holy
synod, force Russia Into war and nil
but succeeded In making a separato
pence with Germany.
Illodor, first favored by Rasputin,
"discovered tho real monster Rnsputln
was" nnd then fought him to the finish..
IJut Rasputin won, nnd Illodor fled
to this country.
Probnbly tho most surprising thing
nbout tho overturning of the Roma
noff dynasty was tho ease with which It
was accomplished. Rut a peep behind
the scenes with Illodor Into the court
life of the cznr. Into the degeneracy of
tho nobles, and to the czar himself, de
scribed by Illodor ns a "man without
a tongue, nervous, weak, phlegmntlc,
hardly able to articulate, an abrupt
voice, muffled, emitting sounds like
those from tho grave, eyes dull, misty
and filled with tenrs" may help to ex
plain. It wus the French revolution
Wielded Terrible Influence.
For years the czar hud listened to
tho "teachings" of religious mystics
and the last and the greatest of these
was Rasputin. Illodor snld ho pos
sessed almost hypnotic powers and this
power first exerted Itself on women
and then through them on the court It
self. Ono of those first to fall under
his Inlluenco was the czarina nnd the
cznr soon succumbed.
How strong the Inlluenco of the mys
tics was on tho c.nr Is Illustrated by
the fact that Illodor relates that when
bis ministers had llnlshed giving him
their opinions of weighty mntters tho
mystics would sweep In nnd get tho
lust moments of tho czar's attention,
often reversing nil thnt the ministers
bad said. Rasputin, tho grcntcst of
these, was able to uso this weakness
to great personal advantage, and many
efforts to overthrow him wero defeat
ed by the czar himself.
It was shortly after Rasputin was
Introduced to court by the wife of a
famous general that tho revolution of

the populace, prepared to Hoe. Huspu

front, that the czar ngaln took heart
and from that moment Rasputin held

those charges. What were the prac
