PETERSBURG Report Spread Thera that Entire r.trrUon Had Revolted aad that tha City Waa Destroyed. 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.

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 bla.show 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.

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.

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 market. 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. PATTISON'S PLURALITY GROWS Complete llrturaa Show Democratic 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 ment to the Associated Press which says In part The people of Ohio by a substantial plu rality have defeated nia for governor. I bow to their will and trust that their wel fare may m the only aim for the new ad ministration. This overthrow of the republican party In Ohio wri3 not caui by himlnes depression or industrial adversity anywhere in the tjtate; it was not caused by any tnlsmannge ment or corruption In the state govern ment : it was not caused by any discontent on ttie part of the people with the record or achievements of the nrpubli nn party In the administration of slate affairs during the lust fourteen years. 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 some good men may be, swept into power upon a popular wave that over-rides prin ilcles. the strain unon our Institutions and upon the fundamental .truth which lie at the rtoitotn or our government win leave the structure weaker rather thHn stronger, j i(atto 1 oisc nai g.'.i my auu.'a as Koveinui o. Ohio with an eye and purpose devoted solely to the nest Interests of ail the people. My conscience is clear. What I did with respect to tne Brannock law was done In the Interest of Justice and morality and In tended to strengthen thut measure as a temperance law. I W iuld' do the same thing over again. '' Tne unconstitutional measures I vetoed I would veto again: the extravagant appropriations that I declined to approve 1 would uecllne to approve again. If the people of Ohio defeated me because they disapproved of my action with respect to these measures they acted wlselv. for had I been f ven a second term I would have been act ated by the same motives and I would have pursued the same course whenever t' e occasion arose.

(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.
