Report Spread Thera that Entire
r.trrUon Had Revolted aad
that tha City Waa
ST. PETERSBURG. Nov. lu. This city
waa In a furore of excitement all of yester
day and late Into the night over the nev.4
of the mutiny at Cronstadt. Every one of
the exaggerated reports of the affair re
ceived credence In many quarters nnd half
the Inhabitants of the capital believed that
the mutiny was successful, that the troops
sent from here had Joined In the revolt,
that tho entire garrison of St- Petersburg
would follow suit today and that the town
of Cronstadt had been burned to the ground,
together with' the surrounding forts. The
place was represented as being In .the
hands of 8,000 sailors, who had murdered
their officers, seised the arsenal and bom
barded the Imperial palace at Peterhof,
across the bay. Butchery was said to have
prevailed In tho streets aU during the day,
and the rumors even went to the extent of
saying that Father John of CronBtudt had
left the bed on which he was Bupposed to ho
dying to lead the mutineers.
Cossacks tuell Mutiny.
Many. Jjf these sensational reports were,
of course, entirely false, but sufficient do
lalls have been received to prove that about
- 3.000 sailors and a battalion of artillerists
from one of the forts Indulged In a mutiny
which was only put down by about 7.000
Cossack and troops of the Imperial Guard
. hastily dispatched from St. Petersburg and
' from tho garrisons at Peterhof. Before the
arrival of the troops the sailors, many of
whom were drunk on liquor plundered from
the spirit shops, hud set fire to the market
nnd to several groups of houses. About 2C0
sailors were still holding out at midnight,
and a'though these are expected to sur
render today the authorities became so
alarmed that the Paul regiment of the
guard was dispatched to Cronstadt at 1
o'clock this morning. The governor of
Cronstadt telegraphed the general staff at
midnight that the mutiny had been crushed,
that there was no likelihood of a renewal of
tho revolt today, that reports to the effect
that members of the guard had Joined the
mutlneere was fills and that there was no
truth In the. reports that the mutineers had
seised the arsenal and the forts. The gov
ernor Jy. JUJs.. telegram, eald many of
the mutinous sailors tried to escape in
' boats to the mainland, but that they were
raptured and were being brought back to
Cronstadt. Me gave no estimate of the
Mutineers Minbrr Three Thousand.
CRONSTADT, Nov. 9. Midnight During
the rioting Wednesday night machine guns
were employed against the mutinous sailors
who had been Joined by a battalion of ar
tillerymen from the fortress, and has raised
the total number of mutineers to S.ouO. It is
difficult to ascertain the number of casual
ties, but officers place the figures at 200.
Many wounded persons are In the ships.
Ths sailors say their chief grievances are
poor frwd and clothing and an insufficient
amount of liberty from barracks.
Roughs Joined In the pillage, but the
workmen did not participate In It. Many of
the workmen and tho civilian population
have either fled or are trying to flee the
rlty, and the docks are piled high with
baggage and household effects.
At this hour the city Is full of reinforce
ments from Bt. Petersburg and others still
re arriving. Order has been restored and
there waa no renewal of the trouble during
the evening.
The fires are still glowing in the market
mid another group of buildings. The stores
nnd houses ara boarded up and troops are
patrolling tho streets.
Riots In the South.
ODESSA. Nov. 9. Authentic accounts re
eelved here from various points In Bessar.v that the antl-Jewlsh outbreaks
thrs followed the same lines ns at Odessa,
varying only In the number of victims.
At Kishlneff the disturbances were pre
ceded by Inflammatory speeches, gendarmes
and city officials near the governor's house
asserting that the Jews had attempted to
tnke the life of the local bishop and in
tended to loot the treasury. The mob thus
Incited started the bloody work. Carrying
lkws and portraits of the emperor the
mob proceeded to Alexandrovskla, Push-
InsM snd Gostlnskla Btrerts. devastating j
nnd pillaging unhindered. Attempts at self
defense were quelled by the troops. Ninety
ter cent of the killed and wounded wera
victims of bayonets and rifle bullets.
The looting was accompanied by atrorl
ties similar to those witnessed st Odessa
end continued for two days.
They stopped 11s soon as the governor re
ceived an order from St. Petersburg. Sev
enty Jews were killed and 120 were wounded.
Order Is now restored.
A mob at Ismail, Bessarabia, burned alive
eleven Jews who had hidden in a hay rick.
The town of Kalarasch, Bessarabia, was
entirely devastated and burned. Fifty-nine
Jews were killed or perished In the flames
and fled to neighboring villages, where
the peasants beat a number of them to
death with- cudgels and burned three Jews
after drenching them with petroleum.

Premier Balfour nnd Ambassador
Reld Deliver Optimistic Speeches
on International Outlook.
LONDON. Nov. 9. "A century ago Pitt,
standing where I now stand, prophesied
war. Today I prophesy peace." This was
the text on which Premier Balfour based

Oreat Bi with foreign countries at
the lord v jr's banquet in the Ouild
hall toni r Mr. Balfour and Whltelaw
Reld, thi f erlcan ambassador, who re
plied to i toast of "their excellencies,
the fore ministers." proposed by the
lord ma vied with each other in
pleasant Jt 3s for the credit of their re
spective ttrles as leaders among the
advoeat arbitration. The whole tenor
of the rhes was optimistic. Among
sador I referring, to the premier's ex
pressloi . ncernlng the probabilities of
peace, raid it was the- business of diplo
matists to make peace and not war, and
for his part he preferred the court of arbi
tration to the arbitration of the sword.
The ambassador said he would neither con
cede nor dispute Mr. Balfour's claim that
Great Britain had taken precedence In the
matter of arbitration, but he would say
that Great Britain and the. United States
iiad set an example and had settled some
of the most burning questions through arbi
tration, and that today the two countries
were more cordial In their relations than
they hud been at any time In the lust
100 years.
Mr. Reld closed with a tribute to the ac
tion of President Roosevelt in bringing
about peace between Russia and Japan, and
said that King Edward was known
throughout the United States as an ear
nest advocate of peace, whose tact and
moderation had endeared him to every citi
icn of the republic
Other speakers were Mr. Arnold-Foster,
Lord Cowdor and Sir Robert Flnluy, the
attorney general.

monies. The new lord mayor went in

ciations of the city took part, was Impos

members of the commission. They will

Secretary Taft, after personal Inspection
and examination of tho canal work ex
pressed his great gratification at the

BOSTON. Nov. 9. At the dinner of the
Economic club here tonight Governor A. B.
Cummins of Iowa and Henry M. Whitney,
democratic candidate for lieutenant gov'
ernor of Massachusetts In the recent elec
tion, made addresses In favor of the re
vision of the tariff. The present tariff iws
were upheld by Congressman James T. Mc
Clesry of Minnesota and Colonel Albert B.
Clark of this city, secretary of the Home
Market club. E. H. Clement presided and
about 3U0 business men heard the arguments.
The revision side opened the debate, Mr.
Whitney speaking In behalf of reciprocity
and tariff reform. On tariff reform he
quoted statistics by which he endeavored
to show that of the 29.074.117 wage-earners
in the country .the condition of three-quarters
of them would be Improved by being
able to supply their needs In the cheapest
Mr. Mrt'leurr'a Speech.
Congressman McClcary followed Mr.
Whitney. Mr. McCleary opened his re
marks by declaring that he wus In exact
accord with the republican national plat
form and President Roosevelt on the tariff
question, believing that there should be no
revision until the public Interests demanded
It or were promoted thereby,
"The making or the unmaking of a tariff
act Is a tremendous task." said Mr. Mc
Cleary, "and President Roosevelt In his
speech In Minneapolis lust year warned his
countrymen of the danger of changing the
tariff luws by persons unfamiliar with the
making of such laws. Governor Cummins
Invites and urges the people to beware of
the dangers of tariff revision."
The speaker declared that of the fifteen
general schedules In the Dlngley act there
are fourteen of which Governor Cummins
offers no explanation.
Taking up Governor Cummins' allegation
that steel rails were sold cheaper abroad
than In this country, Mr. McCleary quoted
comparative prices of steel rails for six
years, which snowed that the British price
averaged $J! .04 and the American price $28.52
a ton.
C'nmmlna for Reciprocity.
Governor Cummins, the next speaker, said
In part:
There must be, at least lu the abstract,
some definition of a protective duty, and
those who desire to find it cannot go astray.
It Is a duly ts-at measures the difference
between the cost producing the article at
home and abroad.
1 am in hearty sympathy with the view
that inasmuch ns it is impossible to reach
with exact precision the duty which should
be imposed upon a given article it is better
to make the duty too high rather than too
low. so that our own producers may not
only have an equal chance in our own mar
ket, but a lit 1 10 better chance than our for
eign competitors.'
Governor Cummins took up the Iron and
steel schedule and after reviewing the si
uailon and quoting many statistics, said:
If the manufacturer of the United States
can sell his products in the markets of
other countries and iu so doing lie makes
a fair profit upon his sales, the man who
still howls mat our manufacturers need
any considerable protection surrenders his
good sense In his IdulHtry at the shrine of
that miserable maxim filched from the
language of the great American game.
Protection, high or low, with home com
petition, .will make n market fair to both
seller and buyer. High protection without
home competition among sellers will make
a market In which the sellers are the mast
ers and buyers the slaves.
Governor Cummins closed with a few
words In support of reciprocity.
Colonel Clark, who closed the debate,
spoko strongly against any revision.

Candidate for Governor of Ohio
Has 41.T05 Plurality.
COLUMBUS, O.. Nov. 9. Pattieon
plurality for governor is 41.7(f. according
to the official returns reported to the
county seats and telegraphed to the Colum
bus Dispatch today, all counties being in
cluded. Only scattered reports on the minor state
candidates have yet bern received but
these indicate that at least some of the
republicans pulled through by safe plural
ities and in view of the slio of the de
fection from Herrlck J is possible that
the republicans may have chosen all state
officers below governor.
The answers to Chairman Dick's mes
sages came In slowly hut the average
difference between the vote for Herrlck
and that for the nearest other republican
kept well up and tho feeling of confidence
at republican headquarters gained steadily.
As puttlson's plurality was only 41,706, It
was only necessary that the minor republi
can candidates should average about BOO
votes to each county above Herrlck and In
several counties the difference exceeded
1,000. ,
At republican headquarters this morning
a majority of two in the house was claimed
and the senate was said to stand eighteen
to eighteen, with the chances of the re
maining senator favorable to the republi
cans. This, however, la not admitted by
the democrats.
Governor Herrlck tonight gave a state

The people of Ohio by a substantial plu
rality have defeated nia for governor. I

The greatest danRer now confronting the
American people Is the readiness, in re
sponse to some sudden whim or pretext to
dscrt party principles and follow some in
dividual who claims, simctimes with sin
cerity, often with hypocrisy, to represent a
cause that is higher than purty fealty. This
spirit offers tho most fruitful field for tho
demagogue nnd the iconoclast, and while

Reclamntlon Engineers Report Pro
posed Plan la JSot Prac
ticable. (From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, Nov. .-(Speclal Tele
gram.) Senator Warren of Wyoming has
transmitted a communication to the di
rector of tho geological survey from A. A.
Spaugh of Manvillr, Wyo., in which he calls
attention to the alleged fact that there Is a
large area of farming land In the vicinity
of Manville which might be Irrigated from
lug lands near that town. Citizens of
all in Wyoming, could be supplied by con
ducting water from the Pathfinder dam.
Inasmuch as the storage reservoir for
the North Platte project is located In Wy
oming, they naturally desire to use as much
water as possible in their own state. Com
plying with the request embodied In Sen
ator Warren's letter, the chief engineer of
the reclamation service directs that an in
vestigation be made with a view to ascer
taining the facts. Engineer John K. Field
in charge of the North Platie project, re
ports that in order to cover the lands
above described it would bo necessary for
the diversion canal to start with an eleva
tion at least aa high as Alcora. and that
considering the enormous length of the
canal required and its prohibitive cost. It
would be far more feasible to carry water
across the divide north of Douglas and lr
rigate the lands on the Cheyenne river slope
where there is an irrigable area of equally
valuable land which could be reached at a
much less expense.

NEW YORK, Nov. 9. The contest over
the mayoralty election Inaugurated by Wil
liam Randolph Hearst, the municipal
ownership candidate, developed interesting
and spectacular ftures today.
For twelve hours the boxes containing
nearly 600.000 ballots cast In last Tuesday's
election choked tho streets tn the vicinity
of the heailijuarters of the board of elec
tions In Sixth avenue between Forty-Ural
and Forty-second streets. The ballot boxes
had been gathered during tho night by
the police and conveyed in patrol wagons
to the election board's headquarters. There
the officials refused to receive the ballot
boxes and the police, acting under a qouit
order, signed by Justice Oaynor, compell
ing the police authorities to turn tho bullot
over to the election board, had nothing to
do but remain ou'sidc and await the pleas
ure of tho election officials.
Apprised of the situation, the attorneys
for Mr. Hearst appeuied befvro Justtce
Pickey of the state supremo court and
secured from him an order compelling
John It. Voorhlo. president of tho board
of elections, to accept the ballots. The
order wus served promptly and the ballots
then were receipted for by the election
board. I'nder strong guard the patrol
wagons containing tho boxes were driven
to various warehouses In tills city and
Brooklyn, where the ballots were stored
subject to the orders of tho election board.
