.T. PETERSBURG, Oct. 31.-A11 Kussia
today celebrated enthusiastically the em
peror's gift of freedom, which the greater
part of the people received with deepest
toy, though In Bt. Petersburg. Moscow and
Mher cities socialists and revolutionaries
organised antl-'government demonstrations
nd red flag parades, which, with the
patrlntln manifestations, led to a number of
ronfllcts between the "reds" nnd the
whites." as the anti-government and roynl
st fictions are respectively termed. On
ihe whole, the day passed more quietly In
Russia than had been expected, though col
lisions between the people and the troops
are reported from Poltava. Kazan and
Klshlneff and two men were killed.
In each of the two capitals, St. Peters
burg and Moscow, the day was one such
as the Russians never before have seen.
The Slavic people, which during the long
war Just closed and the anxious period
preceding the announcement of the new
era of constitutionalism, seemed self-restrained
and apathetic, gave itself up fully
to exuberance of the moment and spent
the entire day In parades and assemblies,
which for the first time In the hWory 'of
Russia were freely permitted. Under the
orders of Count Wltte and General Trepoff.
the troops generally were withdrawn from
the streets of the cities and the fifllest
vein given tho people to let out the en
thusiasm In demonstrations, which, so
long as they were not destructive, were not
Interfered with.
First Bright nay.
It was a significant omen that after a
fortnight of gloomy and depressing weather
symbolic; of the daya of the strike, the
sun shone out brightly today and in St.
Petersburg and brought a radiant Indian
summer day. The scenes in St. Petersburg
reminded the observer of events in an
American university town after a foot ball
victory, but a thousand times magnified.
From early morning the streets of the capl-
ial were Ailed with a mass of demonstrators !
who tiaraded up and down the broad 1
Nevsky Prospect and tramped time and .

unelnllHt senators, consisting of Doth stu- i
dents and workman, and members of revo-j
lutlonary organisations lumped into tne
forefront of affairs in Ft. Petersburg and
converted the celebration Into a great revo
lutionary demonstration.
Demands of the Socialists.
There were long processiona In which
hundreds of red flags were carried and to
which every one was compelled to doft the
hat. A great majority of the paraders
flaunted on the lapels of their coats ros-
ettes and streamers ot crimson riooon, ana ;

Early In the day the "Marseillaise sup

marching aong. The loyalists attempted to
tak the lead against the socialists and rev

demonstrators in attempting to inarch to

troops. Shots were fired on both sides
with the result that one man was killed

MANILA. Oct. 31. The farewell banquet
to Governor Luke K. Wright was attended
by many army officers and civilians and
was one of the most popular demonstra

He was cheered for ten minutes when he
arose to speak. In his address lie gave
credit to his colleagues for the work that

they never had been conscious of swerv

He urged the people to cease political dis

Whatever may be the utterances of any
American, howevei distinguished, he swuks

Governor Wright expressed failh in the

great applause.
A public reception which will be tendered

The president will go to the executive
office after luncheon.
Two hours before the Dolphin reached
its moorings people began to gather at the
navy yard wharf. For an hour an escort
of marines, headed by the marine band,
were in line facing the wharf. Ten min
utes before the landing was made a salute
of twenty-one guns was fired from the
yard battery and was Immediately an
swered by the Dolphin.
As the president stepped ashore the
bugles sounded and the marine band played
"The Star-Spangled Banner." The presi
dent stood uncovered and the officers and
marines stopped at "attention."
It was intended that the marines should
escort the president out of the yard, but
at the conclusion of the tribute to the
flag Mrs. Roosevelt drove up from behind
the guard, the president entered the car
riage, warmly grasped the hand of his
wife and his carriage proceeded out of the
yard. The crowd voiced Its sentiment of
welcome and as the many huge shops
were passed the workmen rushed out and
"Glad to see you," shouted the president
as he drove on: "Glad to see you back."
