THE RUSSIAN REVOLT. . .
Revolutionliij Seem to Fill In St. Petersburg
But Win In Moscow. Progress
The revolutionists admit that the
strike in St. Petersburg is a fizzle, but
claims as to the situation in "Moscow
are conflicting, the Government con
tending that the revolt will be com
pletely suppressed in four days, while
the revolutionary party still professes
hope of being successful
Fighting continued in Moscow " and
the list of casualties was much increas
ed, women participating in the blood

a different section of the city.-....

with artillery, but others spring up in
Estimates of the killed and wounded
run all the way from 3,000 to 15,000.
Of about 550 revolutionists at Khaa-
koff three-fourths were killed or wound

The news from the provinces is to
the effect that the strike has extended
in an alarming manner and that large
areas of the country are ablaze with
the fire of revolt.
ihe old A SNU depot here was
burned down Saturday night between
12 and 1 o'clock. Whether the fire wes
of incendiary origin or caused from Are
works or set by rats is a question.
As the fire started on the inside of
the house near the cast r nd and the
whole end of the houatt was in a mass
of flames when discovered. We regret
for the Co. the loss of freight stored in
the depot, but cannot say we are sorry
to lose the old "eye sore." Fortunately
tne rain prevented the whole block
south of the depot from being burned,
although the eitizens worked hard to
prevent the spread. , ;

STORY OF BOY'S WAGON.'
Mix Up In Christmas Gift. Governor Stands
; to Make Good the Present.
Haleigh, N. 'C, Dec. 28. Governor
Glenn had two little boy visitors at his
office today, and spoke most Interest
ingly about what occurred. Last night
at 'the entfrtainment at the city hall
for the little children of the poor a
wagon was given by Raleigh gentlemen
for a little boy named Allen. A boy
camo forward to get the present, but
it was found in a moment after it had
been delivered that his name was - not
Allen, so the wagon was called for and
returned, Governor Glenn at once
said that he would give the boy who
failed to get the wagon the best wagon
he could buy if he would come to the
executive office today, ; strange to say
the first boy to arrive was Allen, who
said he had two wagons already. .The
Governor told, him that the wagon was
for him which was given last night and
that this had already been sent to his
hou'e by the Sunshiners. ' The boy d
parted., not a poor boy at all, though
h.Jastsrjttn;'tx Santa Claus for a
wagon. In a few mi nutes the other
b iy who had returned the wagen last
n'ght came along and the Governor
found he had no wagon and wanted one
to haul things in to get money to help
his mother. The Governor said: '"You
are the very sort of a boy I want to
help," and asked Mr. Stephenson who
had brought the youngster down town
and buy the very best wagon to be
Federal Aid for South.
New Orleans, La., Dec. 28. Con
gressman John Sharp Williams, who is
looked upon as the logical leader of the
movement to secure all possible perma
nent federal aid in the South's battle
against the introduction and spread of
yellow fever infection, in a letter to a
New Orleans friend asserts that just as
soomas the Southern Congressmen can
be got together for a full discussion of
the matter, a bill will be introduced in
Congress having this end in view. Re
cently a story has gained currency in
the South to the effect that Mr. Will
iams had been induced to leave the
framing of the bill to Surgeon General
Wyman of the Marine Hospital Ser
vice'. , ' ' - ' -;'' - "' I, ; '" , . ,
This Mr. Williams denies in toto. It
will be remembered that a majority of
the members of both branches of the
Congress are on record, through per
sonal letters now in the hands of Mr.
Williams, to vote for any reasonable
measure which Mr. Williams may advo
cate and which the South may desire
' President Roosevelt has also promised
eve.ry assistance in his power in this
important matter. It is recognized
that expedition Is necessary if maxi
mum results are to be obtained should
there bo another out break of the fever
next summer. No attempt will ba mae'e
to divest any State of any of its con
stitutional rights or powers for the ef
forts of Congress will be confined to
providing the best possible machinery
for the keeping out of the disease at
the ports and the prevention of the
spread of the infection from one State
to another in case it should develop
again. In addition, it is hoped that
provision may be made which will en
able the Marine Hospital Service to
render local assistance whenever re
quested by the local authorities, similar
the sp endid assistance rendered
New Orleans last summer.
