Odessa , June 30. A semblance ol
order has been lestored , but the sit
uation is still most critical. Sensa
tional accounts are current regarding
the rioting. In these accounts it is
elated that no fewer than 1,000 per
sons were killed. The troops faced a
position of complete anarchy , thou
sands of desperate incendiaries trying
to set lire to every building They
were compelled to adopt ( lie sternest
measures and employed machine guns
against the mob. It Is alleged that a
large body of rioters tried to enter
the central part of the town by way
of Polish hill , and that a terrific fusil
lade was kept up by both sides with
rifles and revolvers It is also alleged
that hundreds were killed nnd that
when the mob tried to ascend the
steps near the church of St Nicholas.
Cossacks and other troops fired re
peatedly with vollevs into the crowd
with terrible result- , wagon loads of
dead being carried away. Many lives
It is said , were lost in the endeavors
of the military to &top incendiarism
The conflagration extended for over a
mile and thousands of tons of railway
sleepers and all the trestles support
ing the elevated railroad surrounding
the- port , together with all the con
tiguous buildings , were consumed , the
troops In the meanwhile firing volleys
to compel the rioters to desist
RUSSIA RIPE FOR REVOLUTION
Army and Navy Permeated With
St Petersburg , Juno 30. The Rus
sian government , although it has been
almost paralyzed by the terrible
events at Odessa and the news that
the sailors at Llbau have mutinied , Is
making desperate and oven frantic ef
forts to meet the situation and to
stamp out the flames of revolution be

which Is now the last bulwark of the

country profoundly stirred and the
Intelligent classes solidly arrayed

Great fear Is expressed that many
regiments are honeycombed with se
dition and there is grave doubt of
their loyalty should they be called
upon to fire on the revolutionists.
The first act of the government aft-
ed dispatching Admiral Kruger's
Efjimdion from Sevastopol was to sum
fry- mon the Knlaz Potemklne , whose mu
tineers have now been Joined by the
crews of the two torpedo boats which
accompanied it to Odessa , to surrender
under the threat of firing upon and
sinking the vessel. This was followed
by the declaration of martial law at
Odessa nnd Llbau and the clothing of
the military commanders with plenary
Dlspatches received here from Odes
sa do not make the situation very
clonr. Millions of dollars' worth of
property , Including ships , has been
burned r otherwise destroyed. The
city Is terror-stricken , and many , prob
ably hundreds , have been killed or
wounded In the street lighting The
fact that the troop.s nnd police made
no attempt tn Interfere with the
burial of llio martyred sailor Is con
sidered to be conclusive evidence that
they cither felt themselves powerless
or feared to make the attempt on ac
count of the attitude of the populace.
Under cover of the darkness , produced
by the dense pall of smoke hanging
over the city , It Is reported the mob
hiu begun to tack and plunder. For
eign property has suffered heavily.

arable and all workmen have gone out
tn sympathy with the action of the
bluejackets. Private reports are tali ]
to have been received , according to
which artillery was employed against
the mutineers , but this has not been
confirmed , nor Is there at hand any
statement giving the number of killed
or wounded The mutiny at Llbau ,
following on the heels of the evfr.ts
at Odessa , gave rise to the Impression
that It might ha the result of a gen
eral plot uf the sailors , but no con
nection between these happenings has
yet been established.

Chicago , June 30. The threatened
war in passenger rates to the cast
was precipitated by the Michigan
Central , which filed notice with tha

will require until that time to issue
the new rate sheet.
It is understood the Grand Trunk
will meet the new rates of the Michi
gan Central by putting In rates of
$16 first class nnd $15 second class
