A fierce northeast billiard and snow which
blew down on St. Petersburg tonight pre
vented bloodshed In the Russian capltul.
The bitter cold, by forcing the strikers to
-main Indoors, did more to preserve order
han all the Cossack cavalry patrolling the
treets. Heavy military reserves are sta
tioned In nil the industrial districts, but np

snd to protest against the execution of the
mutinous sailors at Cronstadt.
Thousands of Men Out.
The men walked, out of all the mills and
tlon of Jurisdiction. It Is understood deli-
gates from the woodworkers came to the
convention with Instructions to demand the
expulsion of the brotherhood from the fed
eration. It was announced today that there is now
every Indication of an amicable adjustment
of the differences. If this Is done th- mat
ter will not be brought before the conven
tion for adjustment.
President John Mitchell of the United
Mine Workers of America, accompanied by
R. Ryan, delegate from Illinois, went to
Carnegie tonight, where they addressed a
meeting of miners. Mr. Mitchell's address
was mainly an adjuration to the miners to
acquire good educations. The most perti
nent point he made was that he would
never sanction a cut in the miners' wages.
Thomas J. Kldd, president of the wood
workers and fifth vice president of the fed
eration, announced tonight that he would
not be a candidate for re-election. Fur this
position, and for the position of eighth vice
president, over Which there will prolmbly
be a vigorous contest, several candidates
have appeared. They aro W. D. Mahon of
the Street Railway Men's association. Will
iam D. Huber of the carpenters' union.

The American Federation of Iabor was in
session only an hour this morning and the
tlm was occupied In the presentation and
adoption of many resolutions. First Vice
President James Duncan presided.
A resolution condemning the workshops
In the Rock Island (III.) arsenal as sweat
shops was adopted.
The afternoon session opened with an
address by Paul Kennedy of New York,
secretary of the committee on sanitation
of the Central Federation union and the
committee on prevention of tuberculosis of
the charity organization of New York,
Mr. Kennedy, after telling of the grent
ravages made by tuberculosis among work
men, requested the federation to do .some
thing to prevent further spread and. If
possible, eradicate the disease. He asked
that rthe factory laws be enforced and
told of tha good work done by his com
mittee In the past year and showed that
the death rate In New York alone had
fallen off 40 per cent. In the past year,
meaning a saving of 5.000 lives. The con

strike headquarter many reports were

strike had yet been ralrfod.
Foreign Residents Alarmed.
The altuatloo has caused a renewal of
the panicky feeling among the inhabitants,
whose nerves were already shattered by
the events of tha last fortnight, aud hun
dreds of persona Who had returned are
again leaving for Finland. The foreign
residents are becoming nioe and more
alarmed and many of them are hastily
preparing to go abroad for the winter.
In oass the Finnish socialists should Join
:helr Russian comrades and tie up the
Finnish railroad, the only egress would
b by water, and the freeslng of the Gulf
of Finland a fortnight hence would close
the last exit. The foreign embassies share
the public alarm and the British embassy
is aU vising the Immediate removal of
woman and children. There are all aorta
of wild rumors about Interference by the
foreign powers In circulation, and the
Bourse Gazette prints a report that all
the great powers have Joined in a notifica
tion to Russia that they intend to inter
fere and prevent anarchy. This is as false
as the story circulated that Mr. Eddy,
the American charge d'affaires, has tele
graphed for a warship and the cruiser
Minneapolis was now proceeding hither.
The American embassy has not asked for
a warship and has not been advised by
the Staid department that one is coining.
.May Declare Martial Uir,
Count Wltte and his cabinet were In ses
sion throughout the afternoon and evening
discussing the situation and a number of
prominent Uberuls were culled In fo;- con
sultation. Grand Duke Nicholas was present part f
tha time. The possibility that the goverc
ment might be compelled. If the situation
grew worse, to declare martial law it, El.
Petersburg was considered, but 8 far ax
has been learned no definite decision in this
matter was reached.
While the League of Leagues is deposed
to back up the strike, the workmen are un
doubtedly alienating much public sympathy
by their recklessness. Many liberals openly
declare that the strike Is a tactical blunder 1
which may prove dlsuutruus. hut their tem
perate counsel is rejected.
In government circles It is recognized
that the situation In Poland requires a skill
ful hand at the helm. Governor General
Sea Ion probably will be replaced by a man
of Count Wltte's choice. The name of Gen
eral M entity is mentioned iu this connec
tion, but It Is doubtful if he will accept tho
i. Dire under present conditions.
In response to Inquiries Count W ine ia
aid to have reiterated his assurances that
tl.e Jewish question will be referred to the
IViumu for settlement, and he Is also said
lo have declared that the emperor's will

first officers of the new territory are:
V. T. Anderson, sreretary of stale; ,lnm
M. Ptetre, treasurer; K1 C. Ryan, delegate

The convention divided the Island Into

which Is to convene next week; tax asses
sors and collectors, tine ticket was named
In each district, the only political question
being to place the Island under the Stars

Washington: Dear Sir The neonle of this
Island, having purchased homes under the

States territory, and having watted over
three years for recognition of their right
as American citizens, fearing a contlnun
tlon of these conditions and feeling alarm
at the rendition of Cuba, durinii tho com
ing election, have taken preliminary steps
for the establishment of territorial gov
ernment, under the constitution of the
T'nlted States, believing this the proper
step for us to take and the mo.-t effective
wav to receive justice and equity from our
national lawmaking body, also relying upon

Ho Kneoarsgenirnt for Seoeders.
WASHINGTON. Nov. 15. It has been
known for several months that American
residents in the Isle of Pines were becom
ing restive under Cuban control, but no
Intimation had been received in official cir
cles here that they Intended to resort to
radical measures to assert what they be.

The announcement that at mass meet
ings of residents of the Island delegates
were chosen to come to Washington to
antagonise the treaty pending before the
senate for the formal transfer or the
Island to tho republic nf Cuba was not
surprising to administration officials, but
surprise was creattd at the reported erec
tion of a territorial government on tho
Island and the selection of Important offi
cials to administer the affairs of that
It can be said that the would-be seceders
will receive no encouragement from the
administration. Secretary Root, when he
was secretary of war. was very clear and
emphatic on the points "that the Isle of
Fines belonged to Cuba as a matter of
right, as a mater of International law
and as a matter of Justice;" furthermore,
that In procuring naval stations In Cuba
for the I'nlted States, there was a general
understanding that the Isle of Pines was
to be ceded to Cuba, although Its title had
been in doubt.
Senor Quesada. the Cuban minister here,
called at the State department today and
seerrcd to bo considerably agitated over the
news of tho movement In the Isle of Pines
to oppose the formal transfer of the Island
to Cuba. He had an Interview on the sub
ject with Secretary Root, but declined to
