Troops Lined the Streets All Night to
Protect the Returning Workmen and
Patrol la Still Maintained Moscow
I * Quiet Again.
St Petersburg , Jan. 26 , 12:05 : p. m.
The aspect of the city Is almost nor
mal Oils morning nnd the feeling Is
decidedly calmer. Several nowspa-
papers have appeared.
The authorities are following up tbo
proclamation of last night and are doIng -
Ing everything possible to quiet the
public alarm.
With the troops In the streets dur
ing the night in accordance with the
promise to protect all workmen who
would return to work , the patrol still
encircles the big Industrial establish
Moscow Is Quiet.

have been damaged.
Thirty Persons Wounded by Cot. ' '
at Helslnnfors.
Bt. Petersburg , Jan. 26. Contrary
to expectation , the first move of the
newly appointed governor general of
St. Petersburg Is pacific In character.
It takes the form of a proclamation ,
jointly signed by General Trepofl and
M. Kokovsoff , the minister of finance ,
telling the strikers that they have
been led Into trouble by evil-disposed
persons and that tholr bcstjnterests
will bo served by peaceful representa
tions to the government. Tbe work
men are also assured that the em
peror has ordered the framing of cer
tain laws for their benefit and the
creation of a system of state Insur
ance that will protect them from
want in case of sickness or disability.
The document will be followed eith
t er by an imperial manifesto along the
same lines , in the hope of preventing
W the spread of the strike , or by specific
proclamations by the local authorities
wherever strikes are In progress. By
promising to yield the question ot
the hours of labor , which are now loCally -
Cally eleven In Russia , the authorities
believe they will meet the main griev
ance of the workmen. This , together
With the guarantee of protection , the
authorities hope will Induce those
strikers who are indifferent to pojlt-
leal demands , and which class They de <
clare constitute a great bulk of the
men , to resume work. It Is certain
many strikers were forced out against
their wishes , but the general effect
ot the proclamation is problematical.
The fears of serious trouble in Mos
cow were not realized. The only au
thentlcated Instance of anything ap
preaching violence there was in the
dispersal of a crowd of about 3,000
workmen by Cossacks. So far as la
known there was no casualties.
From Finland anti-Russian demon
etrations are reported , a collision be
tween a crowd of 10,000 persons and
troops and police resulting in the
wounding of about thirty Finns. In
Finland the agitation has nothing to
do with the labor question , but la
purely political in character.
If a general movement breaks out
among the Finns It Is likely to take
the form of an armed uprising , as al
most every Finn has a weapon In bis
Various political , educational and
mercantile bodies In Russia are
adopting declarations in favor of an
elective representative legislative
body , and denouncing misrule under
tbe autocracy.
Thongh the strikes have boon
spreading to various towns , the sltua
tlon , while disquieting , is not acute
In several Baltic province towns
there has been considerable disorder
especially In Riga , where the military

Sir Charles Hardlnge , the British
minister , received from Captain
Grove , tbe British consul at Moscow
confirmation of the Associated Press
dispatch from Moscow announcing the
posting of a London telegram 1m
putlng tbe disorders to British ant
Japanese Influences , and he will ask
explanations from Minister Lams
dorff today. It Is not expected , bow
ever , that the affair will lead to a so
rloua diplomatic Incident , and it 1
thought the Russian government wll

of Acting Chief of Police Roudenefl
The dispatch to Ambassador Hard
Inge makes no mention of Roudeneff'i
offer to meet Captain Grove.
Press Censor is Defied.
London , Jan. 20. Some of the Lon
Bon morning papers complain tha
the Russian censorship of news dls
patches has been rolmposod. Thos
complaints are quite unjustified. Tba
no real censorship la exercises la ov
dent from Associated Press and othe
dispatches which continue to comment
with perfect freedom on tbo political
For Instance , the Dally Telegraph's
Bt. Petersburg dispatches this morn-
ins say. "Russia Is cloven In twain
and no human force can weld the
parts together. On ono side stands
the autocrat , whoso behests are still
mechanically fulfilled by his army ,
which , however , Is a section of the
people. On the other hand stands
the entire nation , united In the Inten
tion to dellvor Itself from a yoke
which has now become unbearable"
The correspondent declares that In
the whole empire there IB but one of

Is General Klelghels of ICiofT , wlio

That , the correspondent says , alone

till Is Criticised In Sharp Language ,
but Action on the Measure Goes
Over for One Day Proceedings of
the House.
Washington , Jan. 20. In connection
with tl j consideration of the army
appropriation bill , tbero was an ani
mated discussion in the senate of the
assignment of General Mlles to ecr-
vloo In charge of the Massachusetts
tate militia. Tlio controversy was
begun by Lodge , who criticised In
harp language the provision of the
army bill prohibiting the awarding
of extra pay or allowances to ratlrod
offlcora asnlgnod to actlvo aorvlco
when they exceed thono of a major on
the actlvo list. Ledge declared the
provision was directed at General
Mlles and was most unfair. Lodge ,
Proctor , Platt ( Conn. ) , Spoonor , Bai
ley , Patterson , Carmack and Money
took part In the debate which fol
lowed. Spooner , Platt and Money
contended that the cnactmont would
have the effect of limiting the sal
aries of all retired officers assigned to
actlvo duty to a major's pay retard-
less of rank. Spoonor contended the
paragraph was an Indirect effort to
prevent the assignment to active ser
vice of general otllcors and denounced
It as "cowardly. "
Several amendments were suKgeit-
ed , but action on them and on the
provision went over for the day. Some-
200 pension hills weie passed.
