to an attempt of the military authorities
to arrest and disarm the Seventh reserve

advantage of a great, religious procession
today the authorities sent the regiment lo
escort the orwceslonlsts and preserve order
and attempted, in the absence of the bulk
of the regiment to arrest the men remain,
lug in barracks and stationed at the rail
way station. The regiment, on hearing of
this action left the procession and galloped
to the rescue of their comrades, firing as
they rode. They cut their way through
other troops to the barracks where they
barricaded themselves and beat off repealed
attacks of the loyal troops. Bhota could
till be heard at midnight. The detachment
of the Seventh at the railway station cut
the telegraph and semaphore wires and
is holding out there. An officer of the
railroad corps and the commanding officer
and a sergeant of the Seventh cavalry are
reported to have been killed, while many
were wounded. The procession broke up In
a panic and as this dispatch Is filed the
population is In a state of terror.
ST. PETERSBURG, July 10.-Some addi
tional details of the mutiny of the Seventh
cavalry at Tambov show that both the
Infantry and the Cossacks sent to subdue
the mutineers refused to fire on them, the
Infantry bayoneting the officers who gave
the command. Only a detachment of
dragoons, who. It Is said, had been plied
with liquor, attacked the mutineers. The
officers of the Seventh fired on their own
men. The number of killed or wounded
has not been established.

tenuating circumstances the emperor will
be requested to commute the sentences
of tbe four officers to dismissal from the
service and deprive certain rights.
The full report of the Cronstadt court
martial shows that Admiral Rojestvensky
was acqultetd on tht ground that he was
not In his full senses and therefore was
not accountable for what transpired at the
lime of the surrender. Some of the officers
who were tried with Rojestvensky were
acquitted, their guilt not being proven.

FUTURE OF RUSSIAN PEOPLE
French Historian in Touch with Situation
CONDITION ONE OF ACTUAL REVOLUTION
Liberals Desire to Save Throne
from the Wreck, hot This
May Kot Re Pos
sible. PARIS. July 10. Anatole Iroy-Beaulieu,
director of the institute of France and the
foremost French authority on Russians af
fairs, whose history of Russia Is recog
nised as being one of the most accurate
records of the political affairs of that em
pire received the correspondent of the As
sociated Press at his country seat near
Versailles where he devoted an houf to
discussing the gravity of Russia's present
condition and the outlook for the future.
M. Letoy-Beaulleu makes frequent visits
to Russia, the last only a few weeks ago,
for the purpose of personally observing the
first Russian election. When asked to sum
up his recent observation he said:
It should be understood that the Rus
sian situation is one of actual revolution.
It is no crisis which can be measured by
days, weeks or months but Is a vast and
complete transition, resembling that of the
French revolution. When I s:iy revolution
I do not mi an that the monarchy In certain
to be overthrown although it Is possible
that this may follow. The greater part of
the leaders of the coiiMtitutionHl democracy
desire to save the throne from wreck, but
they recognize that they are not masters
of the future. If the government dors not
sHiiefy the nations demand, catastrophes
of the gravt;ft nature ate ahead for Russia.
Personally I think that the overthrow
of the throne would bo a great disaster
for that would mean anarchy and prob
ably civil war.
Arbitrary Antocracj Doomed.
M. leroy-Beaulieu was asked if the
preservation of the throne meant a con
tinuation of the autocracy.
"By no means," he replied. "On the con.
trary, arbitrary autocracy is doomed. All
the present monarchy can save at the best
Is power within constitutional or well de
fined limits. The emperor has good In
tentions, but he knows very little of his
own country outside of the limits of the
palaces. He is always hesitating, is him
self terrified by the example of the French
revolution and does not wish to have the
same end as Louis XIV. although he for
gets that Charles I of England arrived at
a similar end by another route. Perhaps
it is already too late to save the dynasty
from going down with the autocracy, but
the emperor might atay the storm by per
mitting the formation of a ministry repre
senting Parliament, which represents the
people. He has already lost much time
and tha feeling of discontent Is contin
ually Increasing." ,
M. Leroy-Beaulleu then discussed the
agrarian and other leading questions. "The
land," he said. " Is the most difficult ques
tion, owing to the Intense feeling among
ths peasants. The government recoils be
fore the enormous cost of part, or total
expropriation of the ancient estates, yet
unless the emperor satisfies the expecta
tions of the peasants he will transform
them Into an opposition element and" per
haps Into revolutionists."
. Status of Jewish People.
When questioned concerning the Jewish
question he spoke of his observations dur
ing his recent travels In Kussla, where he
was struck with the tenacity with which
the Jews demanded the same civil and
political rights as Christians.
"There are 8,000.000 Jews in Russia," he
said, "and If so many of them are found
among the revolutionists the . reason is
to be found in the exceptional laws to
which they are compelled to submit The
Jews thus become Irreconcilable adversaries
of the government, which obstinately re
fuses them the rights accorded to other
people In the country. Thus the reac
tionists count on the Jews and this is why
the police incite brutalities against the
Jews, like those at Blalystok. Even if
the ministers are not directly responsible,
tho local police organize these butcheries,
which proceed under the benevolent silence
of the administration. When I visited
Russia plans for uprisings against the
Jews were everywhere announced and the
subsequent action merely realised what I
fully anticipated. The sole means to end
the uprisings and bring about the with
drawal of the Jemlsh masses from the rev
olutionary propaganda Is to accord them
equality before the law. The Russian
Parliament demands this, but the govern
ment hesitates, persisting in considering
the Jews to be the principal organisers of
Elections la State of Siege.
Continuing M. Leroy-Beaulleu described
the scenes he witnessed during the elec
tions In Russia when he visited three typ
ical interior cities, Ixidz. Warsaw and
Czenstokowa. Iods he compared with Chi
cago, owing to the rapidity of Its growth
and energy of the people. He said:
"The elections proceeded In a state of
siege. All the election bureaus in Polnnd
were guarded by troops snd often Cos
sacks were stationed at the doors. I have
even heard the Cossacks' whips falling on
the backs of electors at Ixk!i, but that
did not prevent the people from returning
opposition members to Parliament. It Is no
ticeable that there are twelve Jewish mem
bers In the lower house, Including those of
Moscow the Pittsburg of Russia. One of
the Jewish leaders of Moscow has elo
quently defended the project for a division
of the lands among the peasants, showing
that there Is no ground to expect that
the Jews will prove a disrupting element
among the constitutional democracy."
Results Through Growth.
In conclusion M. Leroy-Beaulleu said:
It Is difficult to forsee the final results
of such a vast upheaval, but I expects re
sults to come about through slow processes.
The results of your American revolution
were realised quickly liecauite vour people
were prepared but the people of Russia are
far different. I am inclined to believe that
this revolution will continue In various
stages of Intensity for ten and perhaps
twenty years, owing to the magnitude of
tiie questions Involved and the dangers
along the way. For the present the em
peror's choice of a liberal ministry ap
pears to be the best means of averting a
revolution with the possible consequences
of .he overthrow of the dynasty.

Members of the Douglas county delegation
to the republican state convention, chosen
at the recent primary, organized for busi
ness at a well attended meeting last night,
by the election of Hon. Howard 11. Buldrlge
as chairman, and the adoption of a reso
lution offered by Robert Cowell, providing
for the appointment of a steering com
mittee "for the purpose of furthering the
interests of Edward Rosewater, and doing
everything possible to create favorable sen
timent for the election of delegates In
other counties, whose views accord with
ours, and to look after, guard and further
the interests of Mr. Rosewater's randidacy
In every possible way In the convention."
K. 8. Fisher named Mr. Baldrlge as chair
man, and the election was by acclamation.
The meeting was demonstrative of en
thusiasm and encouragement for success In
the movement In which all were enlisted.
This enthusiasm was manifested by the
unanimous adoption of a resolution pro
posed by Judge W. A. Foster, as follows:
Whereas, the pre-eminent qualifications
nnd special fitness of the Hon. U.dward
Rosewnter. to represent the great state of
Nebraska In the senate of the United States
are t:niverHully recognized, and whereas the
recent primary election in Douglas county,
turning ii'ion his candidacy as the issne.

by a decisivo vote, averaging a majority
of more than 2 to 1. over the opposing

Resolved that we recognize In our elec

to exert all our efforts to secure his nomi
nation by the convention and subsequent
election by the legislature as United States
senator and we Invite the co-operation of
republicans throughout the state, in the
accomplishment of this purpose which will
mean so much for Nebraska.
The session of the delegation was then
resolved Into an animated discussion of
ways and tneana for promoting the common
object through proselyting work outside of
Douglas county. Different members vol
unteered to exert their influence in par
ticular counties, where they had personal
friends and acquaintances.
A resolution was passed declaring that
no candidate for any state office from
Douglas county would be considered by
the delegation at any stage of the pro
ceedings, but that the sole and only ob
ject would be to secure the nomination of
Mr. Rosewater for senator. A large ma

WAGES OF SCHOOL TEACHERS
Indiana Man Says They Must Be
Higher ur Schools Will
NEW HAVEN. Conn., July k 10. The
American Institute of 'Instruction ' opened
its annual convention 'today, with sessions
in several departments.
In the department of public school finance
Calvin N. Kendall, superintendent of
schools in Indianapolis, Ind., spoke on the
expense, of the education which public
schools ought to give, saying in part:
Thla expense must he considerably more
thun at present, for the following reasons:
Fit st 'i he demands upon scnooia ace con
stantly Increasing. As an example, the
farmers in some sections of the country
are demanding that the elements of agri
culture shall be taught. Manual training
in ita various phases is another example.
Second More and more people live in the
cities, and schools in cities cost more per
capita thun schools Ih .He country.
Third The cost of living has greatly in
creased In the last ten years. This seri
ously affects tho net salaries of teachers.
Fourth There are numerous well paid
and attractive employment other man
teaching for both men and women.
Fifth The public can afford to pay more
for schools than at present, because the
country is protperous, is growing richer
and good scnoois contribute as no other
force does to tho various kinds of produc
The teacher is the determining factor in
the success of schools. We demand teach
ers possessing good health, scholarly at
tainments, teaching power, social refine
ment and the ability to use good Eng
lish. So far as schools fall short of teach
ers possessing these qualities, so far are
they wasteful and so far do they full to
accomplish their purpose ths proouction of
intelligent, citizenship and sociul elftciency.
Excepting New York, Boston, Chicago
and Pnlladelphla, the average yearly sala
ries of women teachers in the elementary
schools waa only tub'. In half of, the
cities the average is less man oiv.
So far as men are concerned, they have
practically disappeared from teaching in the
elementary scnoois of cities, owing to the
inadequate salaries. '
The wages for women in half the cities
are less than those of servant girls, when
it is considered that the latter pay noth
