Russian Jews of. this city are dully hear
Ing from relatives living In the empire of

Horrible descriptions of slaughter and

a lurid description of the niassacres which
occurred there and In,' Cmtn, following the
iKsti-iee of the rear a recent manifesto.
According to. the account crowds of brig
( anrts followed the parade which was held
in reiteration or the issuance of the mani

their head a picture of the cxar and a.
r"ros,' emblem of state and church, made
their way to the Jewish quarter where
they at once- began therf' work of murder,
and 'robbery. '' ' ' "
.Driving number. of Jewish children Into
the street they poured karosene on them
and get Ore to them while the mothers were
, obliged to stand by and helplessly listen
' to ,the agonized screams- of their little
ones os they perished in the flames.
,' After making way with the children the
murderer . turned their attention to the
parents and slaughtered them without
merry. Three hundred Jews perished at
rthat, time In Koloras, while In I'mnn 1.000
were, killed. The most horrible cruelties
were practiced by those -who participated
.In the massacre.
Not only did the police refuse te pro
tect or aid the Jewa 'in any way during
the massacres, but many of them even
assisted the assassins In their bloody work.
The student and members of the educated
classes, however, came to tho assistance
of the Jewg and many of them fought
valiantly In their dpfense.

is a term that aptly describes
the character ana action of '
