LoxfieM, Feb. IS. Provided with a
cable dispatch of latroductloa from
George Keanan, the celebrated Siberian
traveler, tae London agent of the Asso
ciated Press called on Serglus Stepnlak,
the well known writer upon Russian
political aad social condltlohs,and asked
him whether ho could give any informa
tion In regard to the dutrages in tho po
litical prison at Kara In Kaatern Siberia,
rumor of which had recently reached
the public press by way of the Russian
colony In Paris.
Mr. Stepnlak replied that the reports
already published gave only a hint of
the horriblo tragedy enacted at Kara.
Perfectly trustworthy Information, he
aald, had beea received In ojpher letter
that have succeeded In getting to Pari
and London from exile In Eastern SI
berla. These letter, which were Both
Ing but meager aerap of paper, told the
tory of tho recent horror only In It
main outline, but ono who know nbout
the Siberian prison life did not need a
circumstantial recital to understand tho
cruelty of discipline and the agony of
suffering of which this horror wa the
According to tha latest information
Madame Slhlda did not commit suicide,
aa tho earliest reports stated. She died
from the effect of a cruel flogging to
which she was subjected. The flogging
took place on Wednesday, November 6.
It ws continued till tinder the brutal
blow tha unhappy victim lostconwlous
ncs and lay aa one dead. The poor
woman never revived from the terrible
shock, but continued to grow weakor
and weaker until Friday, when death
came to hor relief. The newa of
her snicking official murder produced
widespread dismay among her fellow
prisoners and three of them, unable to
longer boar their wretched fate, com
mitted aulcldo by taking poison. How
thoy obtained tho poison Is not known,
but probably they had longhad It tn their
possession and wero keeping it as a last
resort. Tho names of thu women wero
Mario Kaliuhnaya, Maria Paoloona
Karalefskava and Nadexhda SmlmlL.
Marie Kaliuhnaya wa arrested la
1884, being then a girl of eighteen, on a
charge of disloyalty. Her father was a
merchant at Odessa. During her Im
prisonment every moans was tried In
vain to extort from her a confession Im
plicating hor friends. At last Colonel
Katanskl, a gendarmo officer, brought
to her a skillfully forged statement
purporting to bo tho confession of her
fellow conspirators and promising Im
munity If she also confessed. Mario
fell Into tho trap, confessed and hor con
fession was used against her friends, who
wero sentenced to penal servitude.
When sho learned that thoy had made
no confession, but had boon convicted on
hnr testimony alone, she procured a re
volver, and on August 31, called on Col
onel Katanskl and fired at him, wound
ing him slightly In ono ear. For this
attempted assassination sho waa con
demned by court martial at Odessa Sep
tember 10, 1884, and sentenced to twenty
years' penal servltudo.
Maria Paoloona Karalefskaya waa a
married laiby. about ttilrty-fivn years of
age, daughter of a woll known landed
proprietor In tho south of Russia, Paul
Yoroutsof, and sister of Basil Vorotitsof,
ono of thn best known political econ
omists in Russia. Sho Joined a secret
Circle Which was surnrlaml anil Kanliir..,
by the pollen In February, 1870, and

should have no right to take the reshlp

the original through rate. On this,
point the Commission held a follow:
"Where property la to An transported by

carriage from oae stattea to another,
there may be sound and legal reasons,
for making a charge for the through
transportation which is lea than the.

was subjected to such atrocious treat

Mme. Slhlda, indignant and terror
stricken by this awful event vehemently
denounced thn outrage. Sho attracted
tho attention of tho director, who then
approached her with tho same Insults,
