General Khabalov, Military Governor of Petrograd, has had the city placarded with the following warning this morning:
"All meetings or gatherings are forbidden. I notify the civil population that I have given the troops fresh authority to use their arms and stop at nothing to maintain order."
Around 200 workers were on strike and used force to prevent others from working. The workers prevented the tram from moving. At midday some of the workers forced their way onto Nevskiy, but were dispersed. Violent actions manifested themselves in the shattering of windows in a number of shops and trams. The troops did not use their weapons; four police officers were left with non-threatening injuries.
