PETERSBURG. April .-ln tha Hall
of Nobility in this city In the presence at
1000 people, addresses from over 100 soci
eties wra presented on Friday, last,
to Aleila Suvorln, proprtetor-edUor of the
Novoe Vremya, to celebrate the fiftieth
anniversary of the publication of hla first
article. With that comprehensiveness
which marks Russian festal occasions M.
Buvorln. who la 75. had begun the day
with a church service ot thanksgiving at
10 a. m.. and continued the celebration to
the end of a complimentary supper after
. J a. m.. the neat day, bearing up through
a sequence of oratory, ode singing, stage
plays, dancing by the favorite artists of
the Imperial ballet, and orchestral music.
He had his health proposed by Mr.
Khoralnr.koff. president of the Imperial
Duma; the terpiachorean goddesses Tuhes
slnskaya and Pavlova danced to him and
in the name of foreign culture Una CavaJI
eri sang him Neapolitan songs to a guitar
accompaniment. Incidentally there were
tableaux vtvants. arranged by the painter,
Constantln Mahovsky, showing the divers
nationalities of Russia and the printing
and production of a newspaper.
Notices of M. Buvorin's career teem with
human Intereat. He has been entirely alive
In everything he has done, hla sest for
controversy Is genuine, he Is a patriotic
nationalist and he has assailed all parties.
Boaad Offend Maar.
"There are lOu nationalities In Russia."
he says, "and to be a nationalist you have
to offend 1U0 of them."
Withal he Is a man of many itractkal
good works. In his book-publishing busi
ness he teaches professionally the art of
good Russian printing in a way that no
private enterprise has attempted. He de
frayed the publication of a handsome edl
tldn of the works of Russia's best loved
poet, Pushkin, for &0 rents, so that the peo
ple at large should have access to the best
thing in their language. II founded the
Uterary-Artlatlc theater here, called usu
ally the Buvorln theater, and he la an
eager student of modern painting.
Old Serger Suvorln, hla father, was a
serf of the crown. II was a military
conscript for life, and was wounded in the
battle of Borodino, where the Russians
made their first great stand against Napo
leon's advance on Moscow. He rose to
the rank of captain and by so doing ran
somed himself from , serfdom. He died In
the province of Voronesh, nominally of
nuble rank, but without any private posses
sions to speak of.
His son Alexis was born there in 1834
and waa sent to the local military achool.
In dun course he was graduated, and chose
the engineering service in the army. But
want of means made an officer's lite so
cially Impossible for him. He resigned his
commission and tried his hand at teaching
the sons of bis moreprosperous neighbors.
I.llerary Hack la Early Lilt,
To eke out a decent subsistence he sent
some literary sketches and veraea to the
loctl paper, which had the good luck to
attract the notice of the popular poet
Nlkltln. Hla first notable success waa a
story of poor people, which he called
"OaribaWI." It was published in 1861. It
fame waa helped by the celebrated actor,
Sadovsky, who used to recite passages from
it at the literary evenings, then, as now,
a favorite social pastime.
He was Invited at the end of that year
to Moscow by the Countess Sal las to write
popular booklets for the society for the
propagation of useful knowledge. The sec
ond of these books was prohibited by the
censure. In 1863 he moved to St. Peters
burg, where he took charge of the book
review pages of the Rustiky Invalide, the
chief military newspaper.
While holding this post he published a
volume of miscellaneous essays, for which
he was prosecuted by the government and
sentenced to two months' Imprisonment.
The sentence was reduced by the appeal
court to three weeks, but the book was
destroyed. His vogue waa now widespread.
He contributed a Sunday feullleton to the
Petergskl Vledomoatl which showed his
Individ Jl talent at Its best his spontane
ous humor, sincerity of feeling, and a gift
of looking at incidents from the point of
view of their social value.
His politics at that time were those of
the moderate Liberals, who favored west
ern Ideas. He assailed the reactionaries
and nationalists of the narrow school In
the Veslnlk Europy to a degree that made
his name odious to the ruling wirepullers
In the official world. He secured his dis
missal In 1871 from the staff of the Peters-
burgskl Vledomoatl. After eighteen months
of freelance newspaper work M. Suvorln.
with a partner, M. Llkhateheff. acquired
In lhTtf the Novole Vremya, a St. Peters
burg dally of small consequence.
bdltiDK I'ader DIIBcaltles.
j His previous conflicts with the censor
ship prevented Mr. Suvorln from announc
ing himself In the columns of his new
property as responsible editor. 8o he
signed himself a he does to this day
"Publisher." The new venture roused great
hopes among the reformers who had re
joiced in the public success of Suvorln's
work on the Vledomostl. To a great ex
tent their hopes, so far as domestic affairs
went, were deceived.
He had taken over the paper at a time
when the Christian Slavs In the Turkish
empire arid the Ualkans w re bestirring
them he Ives tor a national existence. Suvorln
enibiaced their cause from the outset and
made the Novoe Vremya their champion
throughout all the struggles arising from
the Russo-Turklsh war and the Berlin
This policy and the vigorous and alert
management of the paper brought It enor
mous success. Suvorln Himself likes ts
abide by his early literary form and his
personal contributions to his paper were
under the rubrlo "Little Letters" and kept
the true epistolary, animated style.
In recent years Suvorln has devoted
himself specially to the theater, which he
had always loved and frequented as a sym
pathetic and well-equipped critic. By
common consent he was voted to the
chief place in the literary and artistic
club which owns the Little Theater. His
reputation as a dramatist rests chiefly
on two plays. "Tatiana Keplna" (1S88) and
and "Medea" (ISM), which are atlll played
with great success. He has written be
sides these many stage sketches and
Noted for Pithy Aphorisms.
Suvorln is noted for the pithy aphorisms
with which he has hit off the. ruling foibles
of his compatriots. "Id Russia the man's
dressing gown and slippers were created
before the man," Is his comment on the
laslness of the Slav. "A Jewish half talent
defeats a Russian great talent by Its readi
ness and Insistence on reaching Its end."
This of the brooding, melancholia type of
Russian philosopher "Peopta live In noise,
dispute and haggling, not In quiet. In
quiet they only die." "To live one must
believe, and tha realities of life help be
lief. Persistent pessimism poisons every
