A Decree That Stums the Progress ol
the World's Thought
CZAR OF RUSSIA GROWS LIBERAL
Local Self-Government Granted in
Some Instances A Long Step in
St. Petersburg, By Cable. The Czar
has published a de ree providing ftfr
freedom of religion throughout hia
dominion?, establishing to tome de
gree local fcelf-govcrnment and mak
icg other concessions to the village
cornuiittits. The decree, which was U
tued in commemoration of the anni
versary of the biihday of Alexander
III, is considered to be the most sig
nificant act of state since the emanci
pation of the serfs. The public hailB
it as the proclamation of an era open
ing up bright prospects of the ear.y
improvement of Russian internal ad
ministration. The text of the decree is
in part as follows:
"The trouble agitating our country,
which to our deep regret have partly
been sown by designs hostile to the
State and partly engendered by doc
trines foreign to Russian life, hinder
the general work of ameliorating the
well-being of our people, lhcsc trou
bles confuse the public mind, remove
the people from productive labor, and
often ruin families dear to our heart
and young energies among high and
low, necessary to the internal develop
ment of the country. Jn demanding
the fulfillment of this, our will, while
remaining strongly opposed to any vio
lation of the normal course of national
life, and having confidence that ail
will loynlly discharge their local du
ties, we are irrevocably decided to
satisfy the needs for which the Ptato
has become ripe and have deemed it
expedient to strengthen and decree it
expedient to observance of the prin
ciples of tolerance laid down by the
fundamental laws oLthe Russian Em
pire, which, recognizing the Orthodox
Church as the ruling one, grant to all
our subjects of other religious and to
all foreign persuasions freedom of
creed and worship in accordance with
other riies; and we are further resolv
ed to continue the active carrying out
of measures for the improvement of
the material position of the orthodox
rural clergy, while enabling them to
rake a larger share in inteiiectual and
"In accordance with impending
measures for the consolidation of the
national economy, the efforts of the
Stat) credit institutions ami especially
tho nobles and peasants hanks fihouid
be directed to strengthening and de
veloping the welfare and fundamental
pillars or Russian village life and that
of the Io.al nobility and peasantry.
These principles marked out by us for
the disposition cf the laws of the rural
population are, when formulated, to be
referred to the provincial government
councils, so that with the ussittar.ee
of persons enjoying the public's confi
dence, thej may be further develoncd
and adapted to the special conditions
or individual localities. This funda
mental principle of the inviolability of
communal property is to be maintain
ed, while at the same time means are
to be found to render it easier for the
individual to server connections with
the community to which he belongs, if
he- so desires.
"Without delay measures must bo
taken to release the peasants from the
present burdensome liability of en
"Through reforms arc to be effected
in the provincial governments and dis
tricts administrations! by the local
representatives, while attention will
be devoted to securing closer co-oper
ation between the communal authori
ties and parochial trustees of the Or
thodox churches wherever possible.
"Calling upon all our subjects to co
operate in strengthening: the founda
tions of families, school and public life
under which alone tho well-being of
the people and the confidence of every
one in the stabiity of his rights can
develop, we command of our ministers
and chief officials concerned in this
matter to submit to us their views re
garding the execution of our inten
tions." Sworn to Kill His Uncie.
Knoxville, Tenn., Special. Garrett
Heddon, an alleged moonshiner, has
been stabbed to death by his brother,
Riley Heddon, in Polk county. A j ear
ago in an altercation with another
brother, Garrett killed him and thi3
mureler led to his own death. Garrett
and Riley had visited the tovn of Re
liance and had started home v;hen they
became involved in a quarrel about
Garrett having killed his brother, the
result being that Riley plunged a knife
through his body. Garrett was taken
home, where, after his family had as
sembled, he gave to his eldest son,
aged 10, his pistol, making him swear
that he would kill his uncle when he
was large enough.
