ndvlnble to caU a monster meeting of
the labor leadeis of the country to
lonslder menus to as-slst the stilkcrs
In their light against, the United

The elicular mcielv asks for tlio
opinion whether It would be better to
assist the strikers by a genctnl strike
ot the union men all over the I'nlted
States or to nhslst them by cash con
tilliutlons. The circular was only te

Kioin WellhVille nothing has been ic
eelvcd heio except word the situ

will be miulo tomonow to put men to

Nicholas Was at Flrt Followed by

t'orrevpindencc of The Aswelitcd Press.
St. Petersburg, Monday, July 8. The
grant of more liberal pi ess regulations
affords additional pioof that Umpcior
Nicholas has emancipated himself
from tho advisors who still bold tho
Ideas which prevailed during tho un
happy period that followed the murder
of tlio Czar liberator, Alexander I. As
an Instance of more benevolent ic
forms tho following example Is given:
A deputation of electors, led by a
courageous lltteiatcaur who Is no
longer actively connected with the
pi es, went bofoie his majesty with
their humble petition. "CJIve us a
piess law," they pleaded. "Let It bo
as your majesty may deem proper, but
give us a law. Let us know whore
wo stand. Fiee us fiom the domina
tion of officials, w.hose will Is their only
law. (live us as much freedom as you
can. Wo will not nbuse It."
The emperor made a giaclous ic
sponse. The editors nnd publlshois
bieathed a deep sigh of relief. Hut
they were cruelly disappointed. The
reactionary crowd gained the oar of
the cmpeior. An artificial agitation
was started. The machinery of gov
ernment and the police was set In mo
tion and the emperor was pcisuarfcd
that fanatical elements only waited
for tho giant of a modicum of llbeity
In order to -Hack the throne, altar

The law now granted will restoie
