Ight long. Trouble has occurred at Trevlso ,

There was a renewal ot the disturbances
t Milan last night , due , to the arrival of a
mob of students from Pnvla , armed with
evolvers. They attempted to force nn en-
ranee Into the city , but were repulsed by
ctachmcnt of Bcrsagllcra , who killed two

ho doors are mostly torn down and on all
Ides can bo seen the remains of fires and
wrecked furniture and other hoiiRouoUl
oods. In fact those portions of the city arc

LONDON , May 9. The Milan corrC'
spondont of the Dally News , tclegraphlin

Calm reigns again today. This being so I
can do no harm to say plainly , though It I ;
by no means certain that the words wll
reach you , that for the last three days tin
city has been In the throes of revolution
with nil Its horrors and sadness.
"Certain quarters today present a seem
of complete devastation. In others tbi
quietness of terrorism reigns and this Is tin
more striking when contrasted In the mini
of the spectator with the scenes of yester
day and Saturday , when above the shriek
ot the dying rose the shrieks of widows am
the hoarse words of command and the trami
of soldiers , followed by the terrible boom o
"When the fury first broke out many pco
pie who would have nothing to do with tin
movement were caught In a trap. Hero 1
an Instance :
'The soldiers were advancing to tlv
charge against the barricade In the Vii
Torno , when a woman , young , richly dressci
and stiff with terror , was struck by a bul
let In the breast. She fell against the wall
only having time to exclaim 'mother' be
'oro dying. At the same time old people
unable to resist the rush , were tramplci
'At another point a fine carriage , will
torses wild with fright , was stopped by th
mob and Its occupant , a woman , forctbl ;
removed and left to find her way homo a
best she could. The carriage was used ti
carry the wounded to the hospital.
"At the central station the engine driver
and guards refused 'to 'leaYo ' , their famlllc
to the mercy of the mob. However , after
delay of forty minutes the trodps obllgei
.hem to go on with the trains.
"The fighting was In real earnest an <
.he soldiers were received as people rccelvi
a foreign Invader. Pools ot blood wcr
seen in the streets and often the scattcrci
brains ot the killed.
'The Red Cross organization , wearlni
Midges , succored the wounded and dying.
Parent * Hantlnir for Children.
"Many children had exceedingly narrow
escapes , the firing coming Just as th
schools had been closed at noon. Parent
rushed about In , an agony of mind. An ;
mother or father can understand their feel
ings while passing through a mob wit
bullets whistling about their cars.
"Women , Instead of restraining the met
egged them on to greater excesses and eve
allowed their children to participate. Som
even pushed themselves under the nose
of the soldiers crying : 'Cowards ! Assas
sins ! Wo work all day to maintain you 1
Idleness ! ' and raising similar protests.
"When the mob Invaded the central rail
way station the express for Turin was Jus
on the point of leaving. The rioters , whei
they saw it , cried : 'Look , look ; they ar
going to Turin for the fetes of the jubilee
They are going to enjoy themselves. Shame
Come back ; come back ; ' and so on. Mean
while the train advanced , but very slowl ]
and hundreds of people threw themselve
upon the track In front ot tbo engine scream
Ing , 'Come on , but over our body. '
'A ' very noticeable point throughout the tw
days' has been that the working men , thoug
without adequate means of offense or dc
tense have shown extraordinary tactlct
knowledge , a proof among others , that or
