¡ STORM CLOUDS AGAIN. SECOND RUSSIAN RISING. OFFICIALS' STERN PREPARA- TIONS. St. Petersburg, Sunday.—The hopes that the convocation ot the Duma would restore tranquility and assure political reforms m Russia have been counteracted by the extra- ordinary military preparations which arc being in all parts ot the empire. L Durnovo, Minister of the Interior, is strengthening the garrisons in many large towns which are regarded an revolutionary centres. Large quantities of ammunition, together with machine guns, have been shipped from the principal arsenals, and Irtish Cossacks are steadily pouring into Europe from the south-west provmceb. Reports received by the Ministry oi the Interior from every part of the country point unmistakably to the organisation of another aTmed rising. Instead oi treating these warnings with contemptuous indifference, as in the past, the Government has determined to crush the rising art, the outset. M. Durnovo has ordered the military authorities to show no mercy. Every man or woman found in possession of a, bomb, or any kind of explosives, is to be summarily shot or hanged. Bomb factories are being constantly raided, especially in Moscow, Kieff, and the Baltic provinces, and revolu- tionary prisoners aTe as constantly "dis- appearing," after having been taken into custody. IÆ-tt-ish newspapers state that in the Baltic provinces, from December 14th to February 14th, there were hanged 18 rebels, shot 621, flogged 251, killed fighting 320, and 97 farms were burned. Four schools and two town halls were destroyed.—("Daily Express.") THE EXPERIENCE OF GLASGOW. Glasgow went into the telephone busi- ness to help tho then Government," says a memorandum quoted by "The Electrical Times," "and the telephone system had achieved an unexpected degree of success. The object aimed at was not profit, but a cheaper and better telephone service for the citizens. About £150,000 per annum was now being saved to the community through the competitive cheapening of rates. The Corporation took up its telephone license in the belief that although nominally termin- able in 1913 it would be extended as a mat- ter of counse, provided it were properly exercised. There was no doubt that the N.T.C. would be willing to take over the system at full capital value, but this would be departing from the purposes of the Cor- poration. Should the Government not de- sire to take over the svstem, the Corpora- tion would much prefer an extension of their license, when the existing one expires in 1913. It was believed that the competition of the National Company was carried on at a loss. Glasgow had soent £360,000 on its municipal telephone system, and the Cor- poration wa.s certainly not prepared to hand it over for a. penny" less than it cost the community. The Government had offered to take over the Brighton, Swansea and Ports- mouth systems at a price involving a loss of 20 to 28 per cent. on capital expended. On such a basis the losses to Glasgow would amount of £ 90,000."
