The Jews of Odessa


Excerpts of a article published in the New York Daily-Tribune on July 4, 1906



Martial Law at Odessa -- Rising at Askabad -- Krustaleff's Trial

St. Petersburg, July 3. -- All doubt of the existence of an organized military revolutionary league which is inspiring mutinies and uprisings in the army has been set at rest by discovery of the seal and documents of the league in the course of the search of soldiers attached to staff headquarters at Vilna and detailed to various regiments of the Third Corps. General Rudiger, the Minister of War, has ordered a strict investigation to be made of all detachments of troops, in order to determine the extent of the revolutionary propaganda and the best methods to counteract it.

Martial law was declared to-day at Odessa on account of the ferment among the troops there....

The administrative and the parliamentary views of the Bialystok excesses were published to-night, the first in the report of Baron Frisch, president of the Council of the Empire, to the Minister of the Interior, M. Stolypin, published in "The Official Messenger," and the latter the report of the parliamentary commission. Though they differ in many important respects, they unite in holding certain officials, guilty of inciting and taking part in the excesses. It is significant that Shiremetleff, Prefect of Police of Bialystok, has been summoned to St. Petersburg. There is a slight discrepancy in the statements of casualties. According to the report of Baron Frisch eighty-two were killed, of whom seventy-five were Jews, and seventy-eight wounded, of whom sixty were Jews, while the property loss is placed at $100,000, whereas the parliamentary commission reports eighty-two Jews and six Christians killed and approximately the same number wounded.
