The People Hare Become Delirious  With Their New Ftran-d Power  and Liberty���Odessa Christens  Freedom With Bloodsheds-  Death an Disorder at Warsaw.  [.srucrAi, to tub cr.Aiir.]  St. Petersburg, Oct. 31.���Last  night the authority of the Romanoff's  and the old order of things ceased  to -exist in Russia. .        - -     ���     ���  Emperor Nicholas has surrendered  and Count Witte comes into power  as minister ,and president" with an  Imperial mandate, which will permit him to-convert tfee farcical-like 1  national assembly into a real legislative body elected by greater extended suffrage and to confer upon  the. people fundamental civil liberty,  including free speech.  The welcome ,'tidings reached St.  Petersburg this morning that Count  Witte had spent the whole of Mon-  ���day'witli ' lEmperor' Nicholas at  Peterhoff going over the final draft  of the manifest which includes the  freedom ��rf speech, the Tight 'Of assembly and the immunity of the  prison, the latter including the right  of habeas corpus: ;  A late' Moscow despatch states  that never at any previous perioid  have -condttions Iu that city "been so  serious as at present. The strikers  have seized tiie prrblic water com-  .duits between Moscow and Mytis-  piclii and large areas of the country  are wholly without water. The  strikers have- also seized the post  and telegraph' offices and are preventing the dispatch of all mail and  telegrams. The police are wholly  unable to cope with the situation  and the strikers have long since lost  all regard for law and order.  A  EI,EET  MUTINIES.  Odessa, Oct. 31.���There are persistent TLinnoTS afloat In this city to'  the effect that the crews of the  Black Sea fleet mutinied while on  the coast of Asia Minor and killed  Admirals .Birileff 4 and Choutanin  and then sailed back to Sevastopol  after hoisting the revolutionary flag.  Odessa, Oct. 31.��� Sunday last  was a day of strife and bloodshed in  this city. It is utterly impossible to  approximate the number/of persons  killed, for as soon as .the fighting  ceased the��fea<d andl wounded were  hurriedly removed from the streets  and public places by the troops and  hidden away. The wildest excitement still prevails and a notable  feature of the demonstrations ds the  large number of troopers of -all  regiments who are to be seen marching around with the, people.   .  St. Petersburg, "Nov." i.���The  people of this,city.aud,. surrounding  1 districts'have almost-gone mad in  celebrating their recently obtained  liberty, and the many .scenes which  are being enacted were never before  witnessed in Russia. The tremendous crowds which continuously  throng the principle thoroughfares  are totally unites I rained by word,, or  deed. Men and women on bended  knees in the streets render thanks  and thronged at corners 'orators  harangue the ever surging populace.  Count Witte today summoned a  conference of all the" editors of the  city's newspapers and asked theirj  oo-operation'iu an endeavor to..restore normal conditions. The editors expressed unanimousconfidencej  in M. Witte as premier and iprom-|  ised him their' unstinted aid but  they declared tihat they could uoti  publish their several papers until  the consent of the strike committee  had been obtained.  ������Baiti-Hsore, Md., -N��-v. j.���Thei  British cruiser squadrondii-cominand  of Prince Louis of Battenberg arrived at Annapolis today.

The police and soldiery..  are absolutely una'ble to quell' thei  disturbances. The foreign -consulates are guarded by strong cordons  of troops. The people-have become  panic stricken.  Warsaw, Nov. i.:���Disorders stifll-  continue in this city and street conflicts' between the police and 'rioters,  .are >af frequent occurrence. The  authorities are charged wifh mis-'  -construing and ignoring the true  meaning of the. recently issued im-  -perial 12/KUiifestcx ���  Stockholm, Nov. 2.���The otd  union  flag of Norway and Sweden  has been struck throughout the  country and a newly <designed  Swedish ensign has been hoisted.

The'  rioting   was continued 'today with  increased ferocity and over 100 persons have been killed and thousaads  injured.

The Railroad hotel at Hot  Springs, Ark., was. burned ou the  morning >of Oct. 2,7th and six'of the  guests were cremated. Among the  dead was H.

Statistics -show that during the  twelve months ending June 30th,  last, 88.6 persons were "killed ancl  13,783 were injured on the railroads  of tiie United States. There were  1,213 collisions aud 1,53s derailments. The total property damage  was $2,401,"671.  ' The news comes from Dawson'  that Bred Menier, a pioneer who'  had been in the Yukon since 1SS7,  committed suicide on Oct. 23rd by  shooting himself with a revolver,  while at No. 5 below on Bonanza.  Menier had become .melancholy over  money matters and had been drinking heavily.  A Winnipeg despatch states that  a tract of 40,000 acres of land lyingi  north of Melford; Saskatchewan,  has been purchased by Mennouites  from southern Manitoba, whose'  purpose it is to form a Mennonite  colony thece. The land is especially adapted to the growth of wheat,  being the best in the northwest.  Kate Kennedy's roadhoiise, the  "Hillside," oh Lower Hunker',  Yukon, in which -was included the  post office, was ; burned to the  ground on the night of Oct. 24th.  There, were iriauy riarrow escapes  ���but 110 -one -was injured. The lire  was'caused by an overheat-eel stove  in the bunk room. The loss was  about $10,000. .  Conrad's Windy Arm  Mines  Examined by Mr. Robertson, Provincial Mineralogist, Whii  Says Thoy are Best Yet Seen..  Dr. I-L E. Young, M. P. P., arrived from" Conrad C1I3' this.monv-,-...  ing and is very enthusiastic iu his  account of the proposition. Th?  Hon. Mr. McBride wired Dr. Young  that Mr. Fleet Robertson, the British Columbia Provincial Mineralogist, was coming up with "[he ' idea  of leporting ancl looking inloflie  situation in general. Dr. Young'  immediately made arrangements to  meet "Mr. Robertson upon arrival ai  Cariboo. Mr. Conrad made" arrangements whereby every facility  was given to Mr. Robertson to examine the various properties:  Conrad   City,   on   the  shore 'of  Windy Arm, is the terminus of the  aerial tram whici?' ht._    d'eiv built to  the Montana claim.    The tram will,  be  completed   in  a few days, when ,  tiie work will* ".progress'much" moie  quickly than' at present.    The mine  lies   at   an   elevation of 3,500 feet-  above the Arm and.3;8oo!feet.above  the sea.    A winding /trail six miles  long has 'been built.    The train :is  four  and "three-quarter miles long.  /2-'%toue hpiise.rraofeetjoug.has been,..--'  built at the mine.'   ;    '  On the Montana claim va drift hits  been run on the" strike for 250 feet  with "a stope about 50 feet above the  level. This passes through one  fault but has been found on the  other side. The next claim, the  Mount Hero, has been opened  through a mass of slide and float.  A drift So feel long was driven "to  the solid matter and then an upraise  run until'the vein was struck. The  distance between the two drifts is  1,850 feet, which argues an ore  shoot of that length. The vein  averages 36 inches.  Mr.'Robertson has the reputation  of being very conservative in his  opinions on mining propositions  but in this case lie -remarked that it  was the best vein he had seen during t-he time he has .held office, some  seven years. Such a statement,  coming from a-gentleman "who hae  examined .nearly all the propositions  in the-north, was most encouraging.  The adjoining properties were  gone over and the next day the trip  was extended over the B. C. line.  The doctor cannot, of course, give  in detail Ihe report which Mr.  Robertson will make officially .but  he.feels that he is not betraying .Mr-  Robertson's confidence .when he  says that he knows -.the report ,\viE.  be most favorable.; ,  ���:���' A great many-locations have been,  made and with the advent of the  branch line, which the White Pass  railroad have -surveyed, and the.  erection of the smelter a great impetus will be given t�� ��nr northern,  country.  1 With regard to the-smelter. Dr.  Young says that he has Mr. Con-,  .'r'ad's permission to make the statement positive thai the smeller .w-iJil  go up si ��rice. 0  ATLIN,   E.   C,    SATURDAY,    NOVEMBER  The Atlin Claim.

MacA 11 \ay, of Discovery,  had   a   narrow  escape on Saturday  morning last from being badly torn  by a wolverine, which is sometimes  called  a  "Quick-Hatch"'or "Hudson's  Bay  Bear."    MacAulay was  engaged   at   the  lime  in  cruising  timber   on ��� the south side of Birch  creek when, he came upon  the  animal, amongst  some burned timber.  The wolverine was about  30   yards  from   him   when he first saw it and  he stood still,   expecting   that   the  animal  would slink off, but instead  of doing so it commenqed-.to  creep  towards him.    Having no weapons,  not  even  a jack knife, with which-  to defend himself, Mac. .turned  and  did  his  best  sprint  for a,hundred  .yards or so in an endeavor-' to reach  a  deserted, cabin .ahead of the animal.    The beast gained on him and  just as he passed'through the open  doorwaj- of   the  cabin -his pursuer  sprang   and   struck    him   on   the  shoulder   with   one   of   his   paws.  ._ MacAulay secured (a club from the  debris which littered the floor of the  cabin and prepared to make a  fight  for  his  life should the animal enter  his' retreat?    However,  the animal  remained  outside  and  when Mac.  tried  to see what his chances were  for getting away by looking out, of  the door his antagonist sprang and  struck   him .011 the  right  wrist, a  couple  of small rents in the sleeve  of his coat'and a slight scratch  being the amount of thedamage done.  MacAulay brought  his   club   into  play and   beat   off the attack and-  then for, jo minutes he tried to scare  his  adversary  away by alternately  yelling   and   throwing   chunks of  wood  at it.    Finally the wolverine  drew off and, concealing himself behind a knoll, prepared to watch his  man.    MacAulay watched  the animal and understood: the tactics and  he decided to make a break .to, get  away.    Crouching   low    he    went  through    the tdoorway and   gained  the   rear   of   the cabin.    He then  ran in the direction of  a   ditcli   by  way of which he hoped to make his  escape  hut  he  hadn't made over a  hundred yards when   he   saw   that  the animal was after him and that a  pitched  battle   was inevitable and;  having  retained   his club, he faced  about  and   awaited the onslaught.  The   wolverine   came  011   with  25  foot bounds and sprang for his head  but   MacAulay' side-stepped    and  landed a terrific blow on the brute's  back.   ��� The   same  maneuvre was  .repeated half a dozen  times, when  the   wolverine   admitted his defeat  by starting for the tall  timber and  MacAulay didn't  wait  for  him   to  change  his ' mind' but immediately  headed  for  Discovery.    Mac. says  that  the  animal   was  at  least  six  feet long and the' most  aggressive  article that he has ever cast his eyes  onand he considers himself exceedingly fortunate'in  haying beat'off  the beast's repeated attacks.
