STORY Of SDUE II
DETAIL8 OF MASSACRE OF JEWS
IN RUSSIAN POLAND.
SOLDIERS BEGIN SLAUGHTER
Fill Streetg With Dead Victims of
Their Fury 140 Corpses Picked Up
and as Many More Believed to Be
Hidden in Cellars.
Warsaw, Sept. 12. With the sanc
tion of tho authorities, who provided
an armed guard for tho mission, tho
AsBOclatod Press correspondent vis
ited Sledlco, the scene of tho murder
ous ovents of Sept. 8, 9 and 10. Tho
sallway station at Sledlce, when tho
vurrespondent arrived there, was
erowdod with Jews, among whom wero
many starving women with infants In
their arms. Almost on tho moment
there fell upon the ears of the fright
ened people the sound of a volley
being fired In tho town, which lies half
a mile back of tho station. A panic
vnsued, men trembling with fear and
women imploring the soldiers for mer
cy, anticipating the slaughter of their
Vved ones and themselves. Proceed
ing to tho town tho correspondent
traversed Warsaw street, which pre
sented a desolate aspect, the stores
3howlng signs of having been plun
dered. Everywhere In tho street wero I
to be seen soldiers ready to Are on ,
the least provocation. The streets
rero littered with Jews' hats, torn ,
slothing and damaged carts. ,
The most severe dnmngo was dono j
It; Plenkna street, whore the houses
lvere riddled with bullets and In many
Instances walls had been demolished I
with cannon shots. At the Victoria
hotel the rooms had been broken Into j
xnd their contents thrown Into tho ,
streets and burned. Prom this point
the correspondent was obliged to turn
back, shooting having recommenced.
Refugees state that Governor En
jelke was taken sick a week ago and
that control of affairs In Sledlce then
passed Into the hands of Colonel
Tuchanowskl, an antl-semlte. Tho
people at once began to desert tho
town, apprehending an attack upon the
Jews. It lb said that paid provocative
gents so contrived matters that tho
coldlers began shooting In the streets
ind bombarded houses, the occupants
being forced to flee. To quicken the
HameB tho soldiers threw oil on burn
ing houses. Soldiers opened fire upon
the Jewish hospital, killing two of the
Inmates. As a man was taking his
wife and nowly born child to a hos
pital they were fired upon by soldiers
and the wife nnd child wero killed.
By actual count 140 corpses wero
picked up In the streets and it Is
itated that ns many moro bodies aro
bidden In cellars. Only one Christian
is known to havo been killed and so
far as can bo learned no soldier was
Wiled. The undisciplined soldiery
acted with the utmost brutality all
through the troubles.

Havana, Sept. 12. So far as war de
velopments went, tho day was ono of
the quietest since the outbreak of tho
Insurrection, but the public Interest
was deeper and discussion more anl- -
mated and earnest than on any pre-,
ceding day. Tho government s out-
right declaration that the war will be
prosecuted to a finish was everywhere
the sole topic of conversation. That
fighting of a far moro desperate char

shall havo spread throughout the prov
inces is not doubted In any quarter.
The fear of an attack by the Insur
gents on Havana Is spreading and
there are rumors moro or less authen

paraded through tho principal streets
and wore greeted with some enthusi

by the artillery band, consisted of 400
mounted rural guards, 200 mounted
city militia, COO infantry and a city

When tho state of tho tide permitted,
Btorm shutters wero opened and a free
draft of air allowed to enter through
the door. Then all hands eyed tho sea
anxiously. The wind was strong and
piercing, nnd tho reef maintained its
ceaseless roaring. Whenever a window
opened toward the land there was a
small crowd waiting to peep through

gradually permeating the Inmates of
the lighthouse actually resulted in the
formation of queues, with stated In

momentary relief in looking at tho
land. Tho cliffs, the solitary white
houses, the little hamlets half hidden
in cozy nooks, seemed to be so ab
surdly near. It was ridiculous to imag
ine that help could be long deferred.
Tho seaward passing of a steamer, car

only three instances were husband and

the saloon accounted for this seeming
discrepancy. Dazed men nnd senseless
women were wrenched from each oth

seas or durlug the final wild fight for
life at the head of the companion stair
way. A wreck, a lire In a theater, pay
little heed to the marriage tie.
