ST. PETF.RSRURG, Jan. 7.-Flne snow,
sifting down from a cold Kky, furnished
Ideal weather for the Russian Christmas
so far an 8t. Petersburg wan concerned.
All the theaters and other puu-ea of public
amusement, even the restaurants, were
closed and the day wan Riven up to the
proverbial Christmas holidays. Th" ols"
pension which have torn and distracted
the country seemed to have disappeared
for the moment and even the radical news
papers, animated by the sentiment of peace
and good will to all, silenced their (runs.
The day panned quietly and without un
toward Incident. Tho religious services
n the churches were largely attended.
At the palace at Tnarnkoe Selo the em
peror himself presided at the Christmas
tree. l.ter, accompanied by the lmi)erlal
children, hln majesty visited the quarters
nf his imperial Cossark escort, to the
members of which he distributed prenents.
According to the Novoe Vreinya the re
iriaed budget as submitted to the emperor
makes the revenues for 1906 l.riH,jO,000,
u against 1.027.nO".onO for lant year. The
xpendltures are estimated at 11,
against $1 ,2fO.W,000 for lant year.
Damaae to American Property.
Mr. Meyer, the American ambassador, to
lay received from the American consuls
it Moscow and Odessa detailed reports of
Jamages suffered by American property
during the recent riots. A statement of
the damages claimed will be forwarded

Governor of German Cameroon Ac-
eased of Grosa Brutality to
African Native.
RERUN, Jan. 6. (Special Cablegram to
The Bee.) Herr von Puttkamer. governor
of the German Cameroons, has been recalled
to answer charges of gross brutality to na
tives. It will be remembered that a great
deal has been made of this matter pub.
licly In the Reichstag.
Kresh developments ' show' that the" half
has never been told so far as the public at
tack In the Reichstag were concerned
Among other charges It is asserted that
Captain von Besser alone was responsible
for the death from starvation of hundreds
of natives. The captain was In charge of
an expedition In the Cameroons, composed
of native troops In the service of the gov
A German lieutenant Is quoted as stating
that at the time that these natives were
dying provisions were easily obtainable, but
that the captain refused to allow supplies
to be bought. When other officers asked the
reason for the prohibition the captain re
plied that he wanted the native pigs to die
and that In allowing them to die be was
only pleasing his government. According to
the atory the victims remained unhurled and
their bodies were devoured by vultures.
Right In line with this are the charges
brought against Governor Horn of Togo
land. A native who was accused of stealing
money and refused to confess was fright'
fully flogged, It is said. After refusing
seoond time to confess Governor Horn
caused him to be tied to a stake under a hot
sun and Issued orders that no one was to
Ims allowed to give him any water or other
wise relieve his sufferings during his nb
sence. He then went away and later on
Captain Doerlng and another officer found
the native dead. It Is significant that no
punishment has been Inflicted on Horn.
Trouble In Aaat ro-llaugary Mmr Kol

lK.N.NA, Jan. ii. (Special Cablegram to
The liie.j Ii begins to appear as though
thciu might be a revival of "Jew-baiting
in Vienna, and, in fact, throughout Austria
and Hungary. The Jews say that they will
not allow Dr. Lueger't recent speech to
pans unchallenged. Meetings of protest are
being called and the Jewish press is almost
unanimous In condemnation of the burgo
master' "warning" as an incitement to
racial and religious Intolerance, If nut to
pillage and murder.
The Chrlbtlan socialists and antl-8emitic
newspapers are not slow In taking advan
tage of this Jewish agitation against Pr
I.ueger. They picture him. us an unoffend
ing victim of Semitic hatred. Even Ir,
Lurger himself Is worried over the situa
tion. In an Interview he says that he was
not understood ln his "warning." He says
that he does not wish the Jens to lie pil
laged or murdered taut all that he advises
Is that his Christian fellow citizens should
buy nothing in the Jewish shops.

WASHINGTON. Jan. 7,-The. senate will
begin the week with the consideration of
the question of the relations between this
country and Santo Iiomlngo. The subject
will be hrouuhl up on Senator Tillman's
resolution calling on the president for In
formation relative to the status of affairs
since the fiiKht cf Morales, and If tha
senate do. not teke up that resolution
.Mr. Ravnor IM address tho senate on
the liominican ipiest Inn. It is said to bs
Senator Tillman's Intention to press his
resolution, and utiles It is accepted by
the senate lie will probably talk on It, If
not tomorrow, thru on ome other day
during the week. With the subject onco
opened up considerable debate may be
expected, for the republican senators nr
prepared to defend the attitude of tlio
president In the Dominican matter, lt is
not expected lhat the, treaty with Morales
will be presented for some time, but re
publican senators say they have no Inten
tion of letting it go by default. The presi
dent. It is pointed out, is anxious for ac
tion and prefers rejection to failuro to act.
Ills friends In tiie senne cite tho course
of events In the republic. When the finan
cial affairs of the country have been less
disturbed than In previous uprisings, as
sustaining the president's attitude toward
the little republic. On the other hand, the
revolution has a tendency to solidify the
democrats against the agreement, and If
they hold their ground they will be able
to defeat ratification.
Shipping; Bill Meat.
Senator Galllnger, cliulrman of the mer
chant marine commission, has given notice
of his intention to call up the commission's
shipping bill tomorrow and If he does so
that measure, bing the unfinished busi
ness, will supplant the Iomlnlcun Ques
tion. If through courtesy, however, he
should give way to the senators to discuss
other questions he will bring up the ship
ping hill later. When the commission'
bill is taken up Mr. Galllnger will open
the debate on lhat measure. He will be
followed later by Senator Lodge in support
and hy Senator Mallory In opposition to tha
bill. The measure will probably be before
the senate for 'soma lime. but. Senator
Galllnger will urge a vote as soon as possi
ble Ii Is expected that the treaty with Cuba
relative to the Isle of Pines will be dis
cussed during the week, but If deferred
the discussion will he had In the near fu
ture. This treaty Is in the hands of Sen
ator Foraker and he will make an effort
to secure action at tho first practicable
moment. The trenty will not be ratified
I without opposition. Several senators have
expressed themselves as of opinion that
tho Americans nn the Isle of I'lnes ac
quired some rights as such under promises
made them by representatives of their gov
ernment. Many Pennsylvania people are
on tho Island and Senator Penrose has an
nounced his Intention of aiding them in
maintaining their status.
