One of Our Dinners
Several weeks ago Samuel Bar-
mak, '19, who came to America
from Mohilev-on-Dniester in the
province of Podola, Russia, three
years ago, wrote a series of ar.
ticles on his native land for The
Michigan Daily. While these ar-
ticles were written without any
knowledge of the revolution that
has just taken place in Russia,
they are prophetic of the present
situation. The first article ap-
pears this morning.
The first serious revolutionary
movement took place during the
reign of Nicholas I. A conspiracy
with the purpose of extorting a con-
stitution from the czar was discov-
ered. Most of the conspirators were
members of the aristocratic class,
many of them being nobles, and
others high government officials.
They were all ruthlessly punished. A
number of them were executed dur-
ing the beautiful "white nights" of
Petrograd, the rest were deported to
Siberia for a life term. This is known
in Russia as the "affair of the De-
cembrists." It occurred in Decem-
Under Alexander II opposition to
autocratic form of government was
becoming intense. The people under-
stood that the ruler would not cur-
tail his unlimited power unless com-
pelled to do so. They began to pre-
pare to vindicate their right of par-
ticipating in the government by pre-
paring for revolution. Numerous or-
ganizations were being established
with the purpose of conducting propa-
ganda among peasants and soldiers.
Proclamations were being widely
distributed, their contents were stim-
ulating the intellectuals and enlight-
ening the,,peasantry and workmen on
the evils of autocratic government.
Several unsuccessful attempts to as-
sassinate the czar and to combat the
governing party while it was without
a ruler, were made.
In some of these attempts the in-
stigators proceeded in an original
manner. The description of which
may be of some interest to the reader.
One of the royal employees, a furni-
ture polisher, was a revolutionist. His
lodging was in the basement of the
palace, in .which he gradually ac-
cumulated a quantity of dynamite.
Having located the royal dining
room he exploded the charge at the
time when it was the czar's custom to
dine. A terrific explqsion took place.
As the czar had a guest on that day
the dinner had been postponed and
no one was injured. The would-be
assassin escaped. He was later ar-
rested in connection with another rev-
olutionary affair, identified, and exe-
Make Another Attempt
Another attempt was made in the
The czar was to return to Petro-
grad from a certain city. In a vil-
lage near the part of the railroad
which was unavoidably to be passed
by the royal train the attemptors
hired a house from which they be-
gan to dig a tunnel to the railway.
The work had been begun a few
months before the time when the
czar was to go to Petrograd. This
hard and dangerous undertaking was
finally completed. The electric wires
ran from the house to the railway
through the tunnel. Dynamite stored
beneath the railway was to be ex-
ploded by this arrangement.
In order to prevent the success of
any attempt upon the life of the czar,
the royal train is usually preceeded
by one train and followed by two
others. When the second train, which
the would-be assassins thought car-
ried the czar, drew near, the current
was turned on. An explosion oc-
curred which shattered the train.
Great was the disappointment of the
attemptors when they learned that
the czar was in the first train.
Assassinate Alexander II
Alexander II was assassinated in
1881. This, according to the agree-
ment of the revolutionists, was to be
a signal for revolution. Revolution
indeed did break out at many places,
but was quickly suppressed by Alex-
ander III, who succeeded.
A scheme for a Russian constitution
was found in Alexander II's office.
Certain books claim that he was
killed by Royalists who were to lose
much if Russia should become less
autocratic. These royalists played a
conspicuous role during the reign of
Alexander I, grandfather of Alexander
Alexander I was noted for his lib-
eral ideas. It is known that he con-
templated drawing up a Russian con-
stitution but was prevented by court-
iers from carrying out his plans. It
is also claimed that Nicholas II, the
present czar, is of a mild disposition
and undecisive character, and that
were it not for the reactionary min-
isters and influential and selfish
courtiers the Russian nation would
have enjoyed more liberty.

fENGINEERS TO JOURNEY
WESTWARD ON 117 TRIP
STUDENTS DENIED ADMISSION
TO PENNSYLVANIA NAVY
"Westward Ho!" will be the slogan
of the engineers on their spring trip
this year. This decision was reached
after an answer had been received

letter sent by Prof. John E. Emswil-
er, saying that admission to their
yards could not be granted.
Those going on the trip will leave
Ann Arbor Friday night, April 6, and
will go directly to Gary where a day
will be spent. The engineers will stay
three days in Chicago, one in Mil-
