There Is a danger that the real Issue'
at stake in the Dublin conflict may.be
overlooked. So -Jar as I have .been
able to notice, the .prohibition .of the
Sunday, meeting and .the brutal Mies "of
the .police seem to have ha4 a nw>nop\
oly of Uie attention of speakers and.
newspapers. .These, however, are details inportant enough aud worthy of,
the strongest possible condemnation.
■but to my mind they are.aot'the most
Important element in -the -situation.
It is quite olear that,llf. W, M. iMur-
phy, who, as he^iprou-dly announced1,
had made .up Ms Mnd to "smash Lar>
lciirism," had been at p&'ins to" secure
the active co-operation of Dublin Castle in 'his e££ort. It is admitted that
he visited .the Castle on the Tuesday,
before the trouble began. The sequence of -the events following *his visit
may be stated as follows: Two nights
later the proposed meeting on Sunday,
t.he 30th, was proclaimed; large batches of the Royal Irish Constabulary
were drafted into Dublin from the districts round the city, and James Larkin and several trade union, offIcials
were arrested. It is tlie charge upon
which they were arrested to wliich I
want to diirect special atteh'tiion.
Before .giving its terms let me remind my readers that a hundred years
ago trade unions were Illegal conspiV-
acies, and that, a strike was a seditious
act. There is no definition ot sedition,
and any judge upon the .bench may
construe any act he pleases into a se-
tJitious act. At. a meeting at which sedition is spoken, not owly the speaker
himself, but everyone on. th© platform
and everyone in the audience -who
does not at once protest Against the
"seditious" utterances ls also guilty of
sedition and liable to .imprisonment
and penal servitude. This is the common law of the country, under which
■the authorities have at all tinues attempted ito put down popular movements.
It was so dn the early days of it-he
trade union movement, and it was so
dn tiie days of the Radical and Chartist
movements. The object of all the
trade union acts from 1824 down to
1906 has been to exempt trade unions
from the operation of tlve common law
In respeot to seditious conspiracy, it
was under the same common law. of
sedition and conspiracy that tho suffragettes and Lansbury were recently
convicted. ^-
Bearing this fact in mind, the terms
of the warrant under which Larkin
and his colleagues were arrested have
a special significance. '
There never was a,meeting 'held In
connection with a strike or a labor
dispute in which the same charge
would not hold good. It is true that 1n
this case an endeavor is made to mak©
at appear that Larkln's crime was
"raising hatred between tho working
classes of Dublin and the police forces j
of the crown and 'the soldiers of Uie

any m-ettle they straightway leave the
court, to resume their duties as strike
teaders, emil, agaiin, as in the ease of
.Ljartain, theygare-arrested and put on
tal-4-1, < not .this ..time lor having been
seditious, or having broken the law,
but for .having been guilty of "contempt of count," ,and on this charge
are #u*f in prison.
■This action of the authorities inevitably leads to 'disturbances, whereupon troops and. -hired thugs of the em-
-ployeRs are hroughit upon the scene to
■shoot .-down tiKe strikers, and, when
occasion requires it, the district is put
under martial law. Of recent years the
■authaniUes dn 'this country, from tihe'
Borne OCfica downwards, have been
aiming at the introduction of a like
S'Date of things with us. Mr. -W. M.
Murphy is not the first big capitalist
to approach tlie government in asking
its add .to suppress a strike. In August,
1U11, Sir Guy Granet headed a dsputa-
i tion of itattway directors to vhe Prime
IMfotfster to dsk fojr protection- to run
the Railways by .blackleg labor if the
railwaymen struck work. The request
iwas ilmni'eidiiately complied, with, and
■there a^so ware lives lpst as a consequence. The conduct of the police in
Dublin on Sloody Sunday was little, if
any, worse than it'was in Tonypandy
during the minera* strike, or at Ktrk-
connelJ dn Scotland during the miners'
stnike there, or. than in Cornwall ,the
oMitm day.   -
It cannot be too ofiten drummed into
the ears of a careless, hap.py-go4u*cky
demiocrarey and its. leaders tliat every
bit ot ground gained -by the workers is
viewedi with alarm ;by the masterclass.
In -the eyes -pf "society" a strike is
still -a rebellious uprising of the lower
orders. The "law" Is for -the lprotec-
-tiion of order and 'property, and will
be enforced1 not only by the prison, tout
also .bjyfcho club of the policeman, and
by -the bayonet and bullet of .tlie soldier. It* bas been so all down ittorough
the ages, and is so at this moment
The tremendous development of trade
unionism during recent years, not
alone tin members, but also In class-
conscious solidarity,, and the rise of a
labor party (Inspired iby Socialism ls
being viewed with grave apprehension
by the propertied class. The less
responsible elements In the Tory party
and ipress is clamoring for repressive
legislation and action iby the authorities. ,   \
■The Mbaral panty in "office dtfes not
clamor; it acts. The forces bf IMbor
must be aroused it worse evils are 'to
be averted. The Dublin dispute, where
we see aid tihe forces of Society lined
up to keep the workers in subjection,
ds an object lesson of which organized
Jabor must take heed. Mr. W. M.,

to exciting hatred between tbe working class*.* of Dublin and the police

also charged'With'having made speeches "for the purpose of exciting hatired
and contempt of the government."
Here, again, the most obtuse-minded
person cannot fall to see the length to
which th'.s l-fatls. Should 'it happen
that Larkin and his colleagues are convicted, a precedent will have been established that criticism of the government In sending soldiers end policemen during a strike -is "sedition,"

No more damaging criticism of the
policy of specification has been em-'
barked upon, by the Home Office in
relation to rescue apparatus and somo
other things could have .been' conceived than the report just made by Dr.
Haldane to the Doncaster Coalowners'
Committee, says the Colliery Guardian, which continues:
■Notwithstanding the guarded terms
In; which the Royal (Commission on
Mines reported on the subject, the industry has, by Aot of Parliament, been
compelled to -install and use appliances that have Instinctively excited suspicion among the most experienced
mining engineers. As the Home Office declined to accept the opportunity provided for them by the Scottish
coal owners to save their face, and to
admit — temporarily at least — the
smoke-helmet and hose attachment as
fulfilling the requirements, they must
incur the full weight of this criticism.
■Most searching it is. Dr. Haldane
has not indulged In terms that are beyond the understanding of anyone connected-with mining, and he has proved
by experiments, some of them almost
dangerously dramatic, that defects or
weaknesses were present in each of
the apparatus- tested. "Some of these
defects," he says, "seemed to be remediable by taking special precautions
in use, or by modifications in construction. Other defects seemed to be of a
more radical kind. . . ."
/The helmet appliances \\ere all
found .to leak, and Dr. Haldane consider^ that many of the deaths that
have occurred must <be attributed to
this cause. Again, the Injectors, were
found to .be inadequate for the purpose
for which they are intended, and the
purifiers-failed in lasting power. It ts
clear, from simply reading the account
of the experiments, that a man may,
under existing conditions, lose his life
{-without any .warning or preliminary
symptoms. When we duly consider
the weight of Dr. Haldane's -words,
■that "every weak point in an apparatus is sure to appear during actual
use underground," the full gravity of
the matter cannot be obscured. Apart
from the critical aspect, this report
has exceptional value on account of
the dear exposition which Dr. Haldane
gives of the physiological problems
I involved. ■ .
j (Manufacturers in their zeal for pre-
j eminence—excellent in Its way—are
i rather .prone to bellttlte any criticisms
I which conflict immediately' with the
sale of their products.   Such an atti
tude is foolish in the extreme, because
it is onljr from criticism derived from
experience,'well sifted and considered,
that perfection—and in this ease safety—can,, come. A few weeks ago we
reproduced'the report of an authentic
American'Commission on resuscitation
from electric shock in which certain
well-known mechanical devices for restoring respiration are subjected to
almost merciless criticism. Dr. Haldane's report on the self-contained
breathing appliances is more sober,
but 'equally unambiguous.
It Is folly-to ascribe such reports to
inveterajte prejudice. There was a
time, no doubt, when mlning.engineers
disliked «ioh things frcm sheer conservatism, -but that day has "happily
passed. ;Such flxperieiue as that gained by Mr. Allott at the Norton Colliery
has done much to convince managers
aud owners that the rescue appliance
has a very useful and Important function .to perform. Again, those -who
maintain that the Doncaster Committee, who are doing such valuable work
for the Industry, have carried out this
Investigation simply as a counter-blast
to legislation, and, so to speak, to gel
even with the Home Office over—shall
we say It?—the Bentley case, are placing ihe most bigoted evaluation upon
public spirit. The coal owners in the
new Doncaster coal field in whose
keeping is placed a national asset of
great value, have been faced with problems of ■Well-night unparalleled difficulty. They have not been slow to recognize the value of such apparatus' as
a means of contending with gob fires,
but they have taken the right view
that, before using them, they must be
above suspicion. As Dr. Haldane says
in concluding Mb report: "It is quite
evident from the results of our experiments .that a number of serious and
more or less dangerous defects exist
in rescue apparatus at present in use
in this country, and in the manner of
using them. The sooner these defects
are re<jognlzed the sooner will thev be
remedied, or adequate means be taken
to guard against harm resulting from
them." '
As a result of this report we may
expect improvements co be forthcoming, because makers have never lacked Ingenuity In dealing with such- questions; but until then the statutory inhibitions must be relaxed, and let us
hear no more senseless recriminations,
such as those which resulted from tha
Cadder disaster.—The Coal and Coke

While the editor was in Minneapolis, Editor Tousley of "Co-operation"

Now the United States knows that intervention
will be a costly affair, and that such action may
not be reciprocated by the Mexicans. History provides some very salient examples for her guidance,
viz., the Philippine Islands and Cuba. At present
her attitude reminds oue of the dog in tho manger,
but slie will not be able to adopt this attitude for
long. Wall Street, the London Exchango and the
continental markets will force her to tako action,

lie does not. When peaceable means h-jve been

one sat the whole of last year), and consequently,

Tlie question of expense need cause no excitement; the city will pay that, and the City 'Clerk
will get. his fee (a matter of $25.00..or so) for acting as returning officer. There may he a few more
crumbs for thc printer. If is our earnest prayer
that we get them.
Tlie question that the citizens are desirous of
knowing .is that if Rizzuto has not got the qualification, how will this effect the legality of last
year's tax sale? The penalty that a city can incur
in having an alderman sitting who lias not got fhe
qualification is a paltry $30.00 for each meeting,
while the cost that will lie placed upon the city
should the tax sale he declared illegal should be ■
sufficient to keep the ratepayers-working overtime j
war question, however, that the capitalist loves,
and loves dearly, for this permits him to manipulate the market, and that is the TIIRKAT OF
WAR. Tliis is the one thing that he will tolerate
and there is nothing that big capital thrives on
more than rumor. This is another reason why ihe.
incident mentioned attracts so much attention—
tlie market can he so easily manipulated. There is
another war that capital is not adverse to, but he
does not like this 'advertised—labor war..
Now the reason why the capitalist does not desire to advertise his own Avar is because of his
methods, and if news does leak out iu connection
with labor troubles then it must be his version, not
the workers'. And the same applies to disasters.
Too often, if the true facts were published, society
might indulge in one of those spasmodic outbursts
of sympathy for the worker that are so iii'conve-
nieiit to the master class.
The worker should not require a magnifying

The concert held last Friday, 20t&
inst, ia Hosmer Opera House, to-^aid
the Presbyterian Church, wias one of
'the -most successful functions held in
Hosmer for some years past.   Some
itwo hundred and fifty people  were
gathered, having great expectations,
whioh were not disappointed. Promptly at eight o'clock our local moving
picture ariiist turned on his machine.
Alter the films iM.r. J. BrownTlgg was
asked to 'take the chair and conduct
the program for the concert. This part
of the evening's entertainment would
have pleased the most exacting and
was certainly well received by those
present.     Mr.   Wm.   Shaw,  baritone,
•rendered "The Admiral's Broom" so
well that he was recalled and responded with "Admiral Tom      Miss Barton
and 'Mils-3 -.Marlatt rendered a -pianoforte duet in an accomplished manner.
Mr. Kendall sang "The baby'ou the
«*hare" and being enpored caused many
smiles .by his rendering of "The green ;
.grass grew all around."   Miss Itankin I
sang "Tostle's good-bye" in a pleasing j
contralto   voice   and   was   recalled.!
"Poor John," a comic song; was well
received, sung by Mr. Alex. McKelnie,
■in character. For an encore he safrg,
"Aftways take a girl  named  Daisy." j
Mr.  McKelnie   is one of our rising
comedians.   It has been well said that
■there are two ways of doing anything,
a right way and a  wrong one, and
when a double quartet from the choir
rendered the part song, "Come where
the lilies bloom," they certainly had
the right way, and the applause was
long and loud.   'Jlr. J. J. Greenlee re-
tflted Praff. Aytoun'p "Charles Edward
at Versailles on the anniversary of the
Battle of Cullsden."    Mrs. J. Brown-
rigg, Miss Pltblado and Miss Benton
acted as accompanists.   It is generally
a difficult matter In Western towns

laughable farcical comedy, "Freezing a

Mr. Kendal a fine opportunity to display his ability, which he embraced to

Story of Lopa-tixi, Russian
Revolutionist •.
By W. B. Northrop ,*
-j* ■   *
I have been twenty-sis times arrested in my life and I have seen seventeen different .prisons in Russia, but
whenever I was imprisoned my first
thought was, "How can I escape?"
'The prisons iu Siberia in 1871 were
like antediluvian buildings. Plight,
however, was not easy. I noticed
there .were three compartments In the
yard for the natural needs or the
prisoners. Two of these were used,
while the third in the middle had not
been used lor months. The reason
was that the planks there were half
destroyed. The three compartments
were situated close to the wooden
hedge with which the prison was surrounded.
One night 1 went to the compartment in the middle, closing the door
and leaving the sentry, who accompanied me, outside. I jumped into
the ditch, and, having reached the
wooden hedgo under the ground, 1
raised two or three planks with superhuman force. In a minute I was
free and began to run In the streets
of the town. rnfortuuately, the
planks creaked and the sentry, seeing
a man running wildly in the street,
screamed: "A prisoner has escaped!"
The sentry rushed to seize me, and at
the same time eight gendarmes, who
•were playing cards, jumped on their
horses and ran after me. 1 ran for
half an hour, but I then noticed it was
useless. The horses were behind myself, and the sentry with his rifle .knelt
down to fire. 1 waved my hand and
stammered, "1 surrender!"
Siberian rifles at that time .were of
■ the piston system. The soldier, having misunderstood my demeanor,
fired, but the first shot was blank.
Having realized the danger, I sprang
on. the sentry's shoulders before he
could load his rifle and.snatched the
rifle from him, shouting, "You dare
not fire; I told you I surrendered!"
The poor sentry was greatly confused,
being deprived of his rifle, and i shall
never forget his naive request. "Listen
to me," he said; "you are a prisoner;
you have escaped. The law says 1
must kill you, and now you have
taken ray rifle. You cannot be saved.
The gendarmes are coming. Allow
me to stab you with the bayonet.
Such is the rule, you know.   If I do
not observe it   i   shall be punished
The gendarmes were, coming indeed. -They wore without arms, and
only the petty officer ha<Ta sword. In
a moment I snatched tae sword trom
him, but a horse tumbled on me. I
was disarmed and arrested.
Special measures were taken by the j
authorities to prevent any further attempts, of flight on my part. Moan-
while the Chief of Gendarmes at St.
Petersburg wired to accuse me only
of having used false passports in Siberia. After the trial (I was fined
and paid 100 rubles) I was not released. 1 do not know how long my imprisonment would have eontimii'.l but
the Governor General of Irkutsk. General Sinelnlkoff, personally asked the
Czar Alexander II to release me and
to allow me to reside privately at Irkutsk. General Slnelnikoff was a very
curious person. 1 should say he was
a kind of "Imperial Socialist," We
often conversed and he had evoked a
deep interest in my mind. His idea
was to make all the Russians equal
under the Czar autocrat, to remove
the bureaucracy and to introduce a
kind of patrlarchial empire. I used
to ipolnt out to him the impossibility
of such an order of things at the time,
when the distinctions .between the men
■were so numerous and when Russia
became too .big, .but nothing could per-
suade General Slnelnikoff. He liked
mo very much and respected my ideas,
finding great resemblance between his
own ideas and mine.
I was released in 1872 and 'began to
live at Irkutsk privately under tbe
surveillance of the police. .The surveillance iwas to be very strict, but the
police observed extreme politeness toward the man who enjoyed the benevolence of the Governor General himself.
While living at Irkutsk I succeeded
in converting many to my creed. »Be-
lng a Marxist myself, I was very
cautious and professed to fe a Liberal In those cases wjiere I saw my
views would appear extreme to my
•people. The result was that I had
many friends among the -upper class
of the Irkutsk .population, and well as
among the peasantry and the convicts.
There iwere many robbers at that time,
the so-called  "highway  men."   Even
these knew me and sympathized with
my ideas, as they never attacked tlie
poor, (whereas the rich had to fear tie
worsl from them.
I felt I could not remain for a long
time at Irkutsk,-and being aided by
some of my friends I arranged my
plan of escape.
I purchased a boat and went down
the r-iver Angara in a summer night.,
Xobo-tiy saw me, and as the river is
rapid near Irkutsk I traveled rather
swiftly. But the journey was awful
afterwards. J had no provisions and
I .was afraid of landing on the banks.
I learned once a big reward was offered to any one who would arrest
Lopatin. 1 had to pass the terrible
cataracts of tlio Angara in my fragile
little boat, and even now I shudder
at the thoughts of the dangers I faced:
Many hundreds of miles I passed
without seeing any living beings, eating roots on the way and occasionally
bread (from the poor vagabond or convict who had just escaped from the
galleys. ->
1 reached the river Yenissey, and
then purchased a horse. After many
difficulties I arrived at Tomsk.
I had a military doctor's passport.
■My name was Ilyin from Verny  (a
town in Russian Central  Asia).    On
the next day of my arrival I met the
Chief of Police Sn the street.   I did
not fear anything, but the Chief of
Police asked me to show him my passport.    He was somewhat dissatisfied
with the document "and ordered me to
follow  him to the  police station.    I
went there.  The Chief of Police showed me a photograph of myself, which
was sent from Irkutsk to all the Siberian towii{j.   I recognized lt at once,
but as the picture was very bad I protested.   I said there was no resemblance  between Lopatin and  myself
and 'finally threatened  with  a complaint to the Minister of War.    The
Chief of Police asked me to call upon
the Governor.   We went there and I
delivered again a magnificent speech,
telling the Governor I was unwilling
to suffer any more misunderstanding.
The Governor agreed I resembled Lopatin very little, and we both laughed
at thc Chief of Police.    The latter,
however,   withdrew   while   we   were
speaking and  visited all the hotels,
looking for travelers from Irkutsk. He
found one and inquired about Dr. Ilyin. The .traveler said a doctor witb
that name had, indeed, been at IrK-
utsk.   " .
."What is 'Ihis outside appearance?"
the Chief of Police asked.
"Small, dark hair, very thin, clean
shaved." These features were just the
opposite of my^own, as I was tall, not
tliin at all antRiad a beard.
The Chief of -Police asked the traveler to ,come with him under some
foolish pretext, and just when I was
telling a story to tlie Governor they
both entered into the room.
The traveler "knew me and was
amazed at my. presence at the Governor's. This confusion was too evident, and I saw I was lost.
"For God's« sake," the traveler
stammered, "'Herman Alexandrovich,
do not think I betrayed your incognito, I should have never come here!"
I iwas arrested and soon sent back
to Irkutsk. -This was the end of all
my efforts, of my terrible journey in
the boat and of perilous adventures
on the way. ,.  ,,
My friends .at Irkutsk had been
much grieved- to see me Imprisoned
again. 'I. was strictly watched, but
despite all th'^ efforts of the administration to cut-me off from the outer
world, I could manage sometimes to
writQ to my friends and even to receive letters,-from them.
General Slnelnikoff, always well Inclined toward myself, would not keep
cue imprisoned, and asked the Czar
Alexander II to allow him to use my
services, as in his opiulon I was a
very able man. The Czar's reply was
unfavorable. "The Czar" it stated,
"remembered well Lopatfn's behavior
in 1867 and would not like to promote
I saw there was no -hope for .me and
I began to think over a new project
of escape
My relations with the convicts and
with the prisoners of my own prison
had heen always excellent. The convicts at that time possessed a stroilg
organization. The Control Committee
was to be obeyed blindly; those who
tried to disobey them were murdered
mercilessly. The same case was with
the highwaymen.
SOme of.the noblemen who were
imprisoned in my prison for thefts
and robberies disliked me very, much,
and once eveorvplayed an abominable
wick on me. They accused me of an
attempt to poison my guards. A quantity of arsenic -was, indeed, found in
my room, which, naturally, had'ibeen
put there on purpose. The accusation appeared to be very serious, hut
all the convicts said they saw the
noblemen putting the arsenic in the
room when I was away in the yard.
I -was acquitted.
On the next day after the trial one
of my enemies was slowly walking in
the yard of the prison, when a figure
with a white veil over hts head Tan
through the yard and rushed at the
man, striking him with a huge brick
on the head. The nobleman fell dead
and the. figure, whose face ■ could not
ha seen, vanished. The "inquiry wa.s
useless. As 1 learned afterwards the
assassin was one of the convicts acting by the order, of .the Central Committee of the galleys.
I communicated- my plah of flight to
the highwaymen and. to .the Central
Committee of the galleys, and they
promised to help .me.
It was a fine day. My friends, the
highwaymen, brought me a .peasant's
dress, a knife and a pistol, a (pair of
boots, etc., and told me everything
about the road. My plan was to seize
the cab of a procurator, -who was expected . qu that day in the prison. I
was waiting accompanied by a soldier
who had only his sword, when an official arrived on horseback to inform
the chief of the prison that the procurator could not come. The official
attached .the horse with a rope to the
tree in the yard and disappeared.
I turned round, snatched the sword
from the soldier's hands, cut tbe rope,
jumped on the horse and rode away.
The gate of the prison was open and
I galloped into the street. Heaps of
hoards and planks were scattered In
the street and I could not see where
my way lay.' The river Angara was
close to me. • I knew I had to cross
it, hut I did not know the ford. I
could not lose a moment, as.the whole
prison was alarmed. The shore was
terribly bad. I had to go down the
shore, but the horse would not. I
jumped on the ground, and using my
utmost energy, I pushed the animal
down and went myself after it. The
horse fell into ithe water and disappeared, but soon .began to swim. I
caught it, jumped on its back and
reached the opposite bank, where a
thick wood was extending. Iwas
■bruised, the horse .was bleeding; but
the most unfortunate event for myself
was the loss of my spectacles during
the fall.
I rode through the wood until It
became dark, and began to rain. I
could hear voices. The wood was to
be searched. I concealed myself in
the hushes. The Cossacks were
searching the wood rather reluctantly. It was raining, the night was
awfully dark and the air chilly. No
one could be pleased with the task of
finding Loipatin In such weather.
Three hours passed and the sound
of human voices disappeared. I rode
away from .tlie wood, when I heard
rather than saw a group of Cossacks.
"Have you seen the wolf?" they inquired.
"What sort of wolf?" I replied.
"Come here! Come here!" the Cossacks shouted, but I rode further on
and they did not pursue me.

A wii,V-
Tlie night was so dark that it was
impossible to discern anything at the
distance of a yard. Suddenly I was
stopped by a group of peasants, evidently summoned by the .police to help
the Cossacks In their work.
"Who are you?" they exclaimed.
"1 am a simple workman. Leave
me In peace, you fellows!" I replied.
"Wljat is the use of stopping honest
people on their way. Get away,
"Wait a bit!" a v'old-e replied. "We
must arrest you!" Another man
shouted, "Don't you know that an
important (prisoner has escaped?"
"Well, I have nothing to do with
him.   What Is your prisoner to me?"
A quarrel ensued among the .peasants, some of them wishing to arrest
me, others saying this was quite useless. It was decided (finally- to examine my -appearance. A fellow -began to touch my face with his hand,
amd when he reached my eyes I
thanked -my chance of having lost the

I found tho town aisvake. Parties
of Cossacks and peasants were riding
In all directions, looking for Lopatin. I
was obliged to conceal myself over
head and ears in a hunghill and I remained there for .two hours. When
all 'becaime quiet I went to a friend of i
mine and rang the bell. No answer.
I jumped over the hedge and went to
the kitchen, where the cook Mary
knew me very well. I crept there
steal UUly, and catching Mary In my ■
arms, I shut her mouth and whispered "I ami Herman Alexandrovich." The
girl ran to Hell this to Her mistress
and Jn two minutes L was put> 'Into a
cellar with plenty of bread, meat, etc.
I slept like dead the whole night,
but I noticed that on the next day
my hospitable friends were too frightened themselves to keep me, and "I
decided to leave the place at once.

There was a gentleman at Irkutsk,
who had arrived there two or three
years before me. He was formerly a
gambler, and It was reported that he

I left my friends and went straight
to the detective's or gambler's house.
It 'was 9 o'clock.    The porter would
not let me in.

"Then  wait outside, you dirty 'fellow, I won't let you dn." .
I sat in the "street on a bench, when
a lad from the gambler's house asked
me to come In.
We were conversing .together In the
peculiar language of the peasantry,
when a noise was heard in the street.
A carriage .stopped, and the gambler
and liis wife appeared.
"A *peasarat ds here waiting for you,"
the  housemaid   said,  addressing her

"My mistress, madam," I said, "has
given you the last number of 'The
■Fatherland^ Memoirs'; please give
it to ime now.' I pronounced • this
phrase ln literary Russian.
The lady started, and in an altered
voice ordered me .to go to the ante-
chamber. She leaned toward her husband and whispered something into
his ear. The latter rushed into the

"Por God's sake tell me!" •
■ "Your wife has got a terrible headache," I replied. "You send your
housemaid upstairs with her, the porter will .fetch the doctor, and the lad
mill go to the apothecary's shop.
Meanwhile, you will show me a good

iThe gambler followed my instructions and in five, minutes I was Installed pretty well in a storeroom.
lily knowledge of human psychology had not deceived me. Father
and mother would not take so much
care of their son as the gambler and
Ms wife did of myself.' I remained
at their house for a fortnight. We
parted as best friends, and the gambler offered .me some money. I refused to take it. He told me also
that a 500 rubles reward was offered
to the man -who would give any information about Lopatin.
. I crossed the Angara and went to a
convict's house. A friend of mine, a
highwayman, bought me a horse, and
I reached Tomsk safely. I. took a
steamer- there and arrived at iTlkh-
vlnsk without *a*ny Incident.

| quiet, but 1 could not live there wlth-
lout visiting Russia at least once a
year. The risk was very great,-but
she desire was Irresistible.* -The Rus*
shm Government had agents every*.
where, so that I used to take special
precautions. I wanted to go To the
Caucasus In 1876 Just to satisfy ray
need for activity. I asked my friends
there to get roe a horse, and I traveled in the Caucasus for four months,
wassfng every valley and river, aud
•thus -satisfying, my extraordinary
physical strength with which nature
had endowed me, Uut before leav«
lug Pari* for the Caucasus I -wrote
a -series of letters to St Petersburg
to my mother, asking my friend En-
gels, the collaborator of'Marx, to forward them to Philadelphia. I marked
the dates on the envelopes with a
pencil, nud I was sure my friends In
America would «end tbe letters regularly. There was an exhibition at
Philadelphia In 1876, and the police
«t Si. Petersburg on opening the let-
tm addressed to Airs. Lopatin would
certainly not think her son was in tho
Caucasus at that time whilo letters
from him were arriving from America. .
I earned any living In Paris by trans-
iM'lons, Imt this naturally was not sat-
fldcnt for my wife and son. I decided
to go to St. Petersburg, where I conld

searches  and  arrests  were  made in
the capital.
I .was returning home when I saw
a owlice officer at my door who
st^rti&d a/t the name of Sebastianoff.
Being-very cautious, I telegraphed to
my <w-ifeftjshe lived in a villa) not. to
call upon Die until further notice.
A number of gendarmes and policemen called upon me on the next day
and began to search my room. I was
wondering <at them, being unaware
whether they were looking for Sebas-
tianoff .or Lopatin. My. wife's photograph was on my desk in a gala dress.
The gendarmerie officer asked me
who was the lady. 1 said it was a
'French actress. Suddenly I heard my
wife's voice on the stairs. Evidently
she had!" not received my telegram.
She entered the room .before I could
move. The ofiilcer looked at her and*,
smiling:, addressed me: "What a
st range resemblance between the photo aud tills lady!" The danger was
too imminent, and I told my wife in
French: "Tell every tiling, conceal
nothing." ■ I..wanted to save her at any
price. Meanwhile, the gendarmes had
neanly finished tlieir work. They did
not find'anything, but I was amazed
at the officer examining my stick and
umbrella. The .reason was that I had
knives concealed in these and no one
knew ,it except Voronovich, my friend
in Paris. I learned afterwards that
Voronovich was an agent of the government and that it was he who informed the 'police of Lonatin's arrival,
stating, by the by, the fact about
tlie knives.
■The .police, however, had.been looking for Sebastianoff, as they did. not
know Lopatin's outside appearance.
It -was a .strange whim of fate that I
was arrested.   ,
The police discovered a secret
printing office long before my arrival.
The manager was arrested. At the
trial he said he was appointed by a
certain Sebastianoff. He confessed afterwards that he invented the name.
When my friend^ Dr.-Weimar, was
arrested, after the assassination of
General Mesentsoff, he refused to say
anything; The reason of his arrest
was that a revolver had been found
uear the .general's corpse. The police
ascertained the fact that the revolver
had been sold to Dr. Weimar. This
was not enough. Dr. Weimar had
been seriously compromised since
Prince Kropotkin's flight. The latter
escaped, helped by his friends, who
asked Dr. Weimar to give them one
of his good horses. Dr. Weimar did
not know the motives but agreed to
give one of his horses. After the
flight of Prince Kropotkln the horse,
being abandoned, returned home,
closely watched by the police. ■■ The
p.tifa.ir had no consequence for Dr.
Kravcbiiimsky, the assassin of .General Mesentsoff. a3so used Weimar's
horses. This was too much ■ for *he

Special orders were given to the
police to look tor SebasHanoff. The
result .was my arrest'. The police
were Informed at the same time of
Lopatin's residing in St.. Petersburg.
The chief of police did not see I.o-
■IMtin and wired to Veronovlch to
coma to Russia. The latter arrived
at St. Petersburg and recognised me
at once. The police thus found Lo-
P-atln and Sebastianoff both.
I was taken to the "Third Section,"
the terrible institution of the secret
police In Russia. 'My. wife wa* there,
The gendarmes left me alone ln a
big room, when I heard n horrible
scream by a woman. I thought it
was my wife's voice and forgetting

roristic acts, i.e., assassinations of the
momarchs, high officials, etc., were
factors of .freedom, whereas my opinion was that such acts meant only
symptoms of the general discontent.
I admitted terrorism in theory as tbe
only possible .policy against the bitterest enemies of mankind.
Several prominent members of the
so-called "Zemsky Union," a kind of
semi-official association created at St.
Petersburg in 1882, arrived at Paris
in 1883 and opened negotiations with
the "Xarodnaya Volia." 1 was appointed by my friends to represent
Ihe "Xarodnaya Volia," although I
did not belong to the party yet. The
"Zemsky Unionists" proposed to conclude a treaty. They asked us not to
make any attempts on the Czar's life,
promising to release our friends in
exchange. I wanted Cheraiysbevsky
to be .released immediately and agreed
to, sign the treaty under this condition. The "Unionists" left Paris for
St. Petersburg and the pourparlers
ceased quite unexpectedly.
We had a very energetic agent at
St. Petersburg, M. Degaeff, a mem-
-ber of the Executive Committee. I
went to St. Petersburg in November,
1883, as an Englishman, Norrlsson,
and when I met'Degaeff I could not
help being suspicious. Degaeff told
•me he was arrested at Odessa and
then escaped, but the narrative ap-.
.peared to me quite incredible, I returned to Paris and learned there
tliat Degaeff was employed as secretary of the Chief of the Secret Police
at St. Petersburg, Colonel Sudeykin.
Our party knew this and agreed to
Degaeff's appointment, hoping thus to
achieve success for its own cause
Degaeff used to betray insignificant
revolutionary plans and Colonel Sudeykin was much pleased with him.
The object of the party was to learn
(■he designs of the government through
Degnaeff, though sacrificing some victims, to murder Sudeykin and to destroy the most important plans of the
Russian bureaucracy.
One of our best agents, Miss Vera
Flsjner (her brother is now a celebrated singer at the St. Petersburg
Imperial (Theatre) was arrested at
Kharkoff in 1883. I suspected De-
gaeff's hand in this plot, and the
man appeared too dangerous to me.
I was sure he was deceiving us.
Finally, the Central Committee of the
"Naroduaya Volia" ordered Degaeff to
assassinate Colonel Sudeykin, threatening him death In case of disobedience.
The reason of the sudden Interruption of the pourparler between us
and the Zemsky Union was clear to
me. The government saw that our
party had 'been nearly destroyed since
the numerous arrests, and being assisted by Degaeff, decided to close the
Frightened with the decision of the'
Central Committee of the "Xarodnaya
Volia," Degaeff hastened to kill Colonel Sudeykin and fled to .Paris. I
held this man to be too dangerous and
the committee sent him to Guiana. I
heard afterwards that Degaeff became
rich and took out naturalization papers In America.
In January, 1884, I joined, the
"Nanodnaya Volia." and left Paris for

revolutionary organizations j™ q";?!°. I In—1888

1 was not tortured, us I think, nobody was in Russia, c.\t<?pt in very
few cases.
The trial was fixed in 18-S7. The
highest statesmen wore present.
There were iivn moro revolutionists,
who had served under my command.
1 askc-d the Martial Court not to
spare me. "My life," I said, " has not
been very useful for the "Xarodnaya
Volia,' and as our party is destroyed
now, there is nothing left for me in
■the future. I consider myself to be
a prisoner of war. Our party has declared 'war .to the Russian ', Government; you have captured one' of the
revolutionary generals. Act as you
can. I do not. recognize your justice,
•so that I shall not speak any more.
I want only to give .t he account of
my arrest, in order to show that I did
not betray my officers and soldiers,
that I tried to swallow the list with
the addresses."
The .president interrupted .me: "I
carnnot allow you to give this account
here/' he said.
"I appeal to your honor," ' I exclaimed. "You are officers and you
understand Uie sense of duty. I want
to retain my honor, I must speak. I
must tell Russia that Herman Lopatin,
one of her sons, is not a coward.- I
must tell her that the list had been
seized because of the barbarian state
of things in this country under which
people may be arrested in the street
in the open daylight."    .
I pronounced these words nearly
fainting. Tlie .president could not stop
me, and I told everything.
We were sentenced to death.
For sixteen days we were waiting
for the hangman, when the Czar,
Alexander III, decided to send us to
the Schlusselburg prison for the remainder of our lives.
I was brought to the grim prison on
tlie banks of the Neva, where I remained for eighteen* and one-half
years. I had a small damp room like
the other prisoners. But I was too
strong for the Schlusselburg fortress,
and while plenty of my colleagues became mad or died through the abominable re,rime, my health was not altered.
We were allowed to walk in the big
yard separately, always in company of
the sentries. We had no newspapers,
no journals, no books. It was a long,
continuous solitary, night without any
sound. The sufferings of such isolation are Indeed Indescribable.
The food was -horrid.   Black beetles
and worms swarmed in our sou;i and
meat.    No   protests   were   permitted. |
Whoever dared protest aloud  risked l
boing flogged.    The    law    authorizpd I

shoot any one who struck a wai tor. i
Some of the prisoners were eaten by ,
worms and rats.   One of the unfortunate fellows broke his head on the wall,
preferring to die rather than continue
his miserable existence.
We guessed sometimes that some of.
Mie prisoners were dead or executed ;
by the number of plates in which'
tlie waiters brought us food. But we.
had no news froni the outer <worid.
