Convictions Grow Out of Railroad
Troubles In 1905, When Many Per
sons Were Killed in Demonstrations
at Yekaterinoslav.
Yekaterinoslav, Russia, Jan. 2. The
military court pronounced forty-one
death sentences, nine for recent
crimes. Thirty-two of the condemned
men were strikers in the railroad
troubles of October, 1905. In addition
to the death sentences, twelve strik
ers were condemned to penal servitude
for life, forty-eight to lesser terms of
exile and thirty-nine were acquitted.
These sentences grow out of the
events of 1905, when strikers attempt
ed to tie up the whole railway system,
telegraph lines and gas and' electric
light plants. The demonstrations at
Yekaterinoslav were particularly des
perate, many persons 'alng killed and
injured. The criminal prosecution to
these events was only recently com

lately enjoyed full liberty, some of
them being employed by the munici
