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 menced. Most of the strikers until lately enjoyed full liberty, some of them being employed by the munici pality. Slayers of Prince Chavodze Killed, Tiflis, Jan. 2.
