    Does this mean that the Jew gossiping in Kovno caused the chillul shabbat of the other Jew?

      Yes. He is saying that when one Jew sins, it causes another Jew to sin. I forgot who the rav was, but he once saw two yeshiva students speaking lashon hora and he yelled at them and said something like this: “Murderer! Because of your lashon hora, someone in another part of the world was just murdered.”
