St. Petersburg, /eb. 28.—A military
court sitting in the fortress of St.
Peter and SL Paul under the presiden-
cy of Gen. Nlkisoroff yesterday con-
demned to death seven of the Terror-
ists charged with complicity in the
attempt last week In this city upon
the lives of Grand Duke Nicholas
Nicholaevitch, a second cousin of the
Emperor and M. Chlteheglovitoff, the]
Minister of Justice, and sentenced
three others to fifteen years impris-
onment at hard labor.
Among those upon whom the death
sentence was passed Is a supposed
Italian journalist Calvlno, who has
represented papers In St. Petersburg,
La Vita, of Rome and II Tempo of
Milan. A special attorney was secur-
ed for him by the Italian Embassy,
but Calvlno spurned the assistance of
the Embassy, saying he wished to
share the fate of his comrades. Ad-
dressing the court In broken Russian,
he made the sensational declaration
that the passport that bore his name
was not really his and that therefore
he desired to be tried as a Russian
subject. All efforts on the part of the j

Toklo, Feb. 28.—Special cablegrams
from New York and London published
In Toklo newspapers have created
astonishment In financial circles be-
cause It Is evident that certain inf-
fluences have determined to misrep-
resent and exaggerate existing condi-
tions ln Japan. These cablegrams
say that the decline of Japanese secur-
ities Is due to a financial panic.
The use of the word “panic” as rep-
Dr. Vollni’s practice has dwindled
since these threats have been made
against him, for he refuses to make
any night calls. He is suspicious of

Dr. VolinI la convinced that the
anti-clerical quarrel started over a
personal difference between one of
the leading Italians and a priest
“The anti-clerical society Is a na-
tional movement ln Italy," he said.
“Here In Chicago a society has been
formed—the Giordano Bruno—which
has for its object the spreading of
the doctrine that the priests should
-not mix up In matters of local gov-
ernment. There Is no anarchy ln It.
