tlon, but before any action could be ta
ken in the Knight Commander case, the
Russian Government must have the op
portunity of receiving the report of the
commander of the Vladivostok squad

unduly press the matter and promised
to wait a reasonable time.

noon, Premier Balfour, confirming the
announcements made In theso dis
patches, said the acute stage of the Red
.vea Incidents had passed, and that the
Russian volunteer fleet vessels would be
withdrawn. He laid down the British

either had no right to Issue or to take
such action.

Russian Government through Spencer
Eddy, the American charge at St.
Petersburg, on the subject of the seiz

Amorclan company, the owners of the
ship, undoubtedly will appeal to the
German Government to secure tho ro
leaso of lta ship and compensation for
the delay ln her cmlse and other Items
of loss. It Is deemed highly desirable
to take conservative action, and above
all to' avoid Increasing the Irritation in
shipping circles over the recent seizures
and Blnklng of vessels. Therefore, Mr.
Eddy has been, It Is understood, In
structed to make some very moderate
representations to the Russian Govern

and discuss the move. The placo named
for tho men to apply for tholr money
Is outside the stock yards proper, at
Halsted street and Exchange avenue.
It was selected as affording the least
possibility of disorder.

larly laundry, hotel and the cheaper

No More Conferences.
Arthur Meeker of the Armour com
pany today declared that the answer
given by the packers at the conference
with the State Board of Arbitration last
night, reflected in Its entirety tho posi
tion of the packers, and that the state
ment attributed to him that they wore
willing to go back to the agreement en
tered Into with Mr. Donnclly'H organi
zation was entirely unfounded.
"Our position Is." he said, "that we
had an agreement with the butchers'
organisation and allied trades which
they have failed to live up to, and un
der the circumstances we do not care
to make any furtfcLr agreements with
then."

Outcome of a Widespread
ST. PETERSBURG, July 23. Vlat

assassinated at 9:50 o'clock this morn- jf
lng by a bomb thrown at his carriage jH
whilo ho was driving to the BaltR)

weekly report to the Czar.
Widespread Plot.
The assassination Is, believed to bo
tho outcome of a widespread plot, the
existence of which has been suspected
for several days. Numerous arrest3
have already been made, including that
of tho assassin, a young man who 1? H
believed to be a Finn of the name of
Leglo, and who Is now In a hospital, jH
perhaps fatally Injured by the cxplo- jH
sion of his own bomb. jH
Accomplice Also Arrested.
An accomplice of Leglo, also ap
parently a Finn, but whoso name I:
unknown, has been arrested. He had jH
In his possession a bomb which he tried IH
to throw, but he was overpowered by IH
the police Just In time to prevent great ,H
loss of life. jH
Thrown From Sidewalk.
The assassin stood on the sidewalk jH
Just as Minister Von Plehvc's carriage
was about to cross the canal bridge
near the station. The minister was es- jH
corted by a number of detectives on
blcyclcB, and one of them Jostled the
assassin who then rushed into the road
and threw the bomb after the carriage
Minister Killed Outrisrht.
The missile struck the hind wheel and jH
exploded with fearful force, killing or
wounding more than a score of per- jH
sons. Minister Von Plehve and his
coachman were killed outright and an
officer of the guard was fatally injured.
Seized by Detectives.
One of the detectives caught the as
slssln who endeavored to escape, though
wounded by splinters ln the face, arm
and abdomen. He made no attempt at jH
resistance, however, when seized by
the detective and confessed his crime, jH
but refused to give his name. jH
Force of Explosion Terrific.
The explosive Is believed to have been
composed of pyroxlln, as It gave off jH
little smoke. The force of the explosion jH
Avas so terrific that It not only broke WM
nearly every window within a radius jH
of half a mile, but reduced heavy pav- jH
lng stones to powder, heaved up the
pavement and flung a heavy piece of jH
Iron work of the carriage across the
canal, severing a thick barge mast,
which fell stunning the captain of the
barge. Everybody in the street was jH
lenocked down and bruised. IH
Scene of Wild Confusion.
Immediately there ensued a scone of jH
the wildest confusion. Police and gen- jH
d'armcB hurried up from every direction jH
and vast crowds gathered about the jH
spot where the mangled body of the
Minister lay weltering ln his blood.
Wns Shockingly Mangled.
M. Von Plehvc's shockingly mangled
body was lying in the middle of the SH
road. It had been partially covered
with a pollco officer's overcoat, with tho jH
left arm, the bone of which was broken
off, projecting. jH
A policeman came up and raised the
overcoat ln order to rearrange It. re-
veallng for an Instant the strong fea- jH
turcs of the dead Minister, whose head
was battered almost beyojid reoognl-
The roadway wns strewn for a hun-
dred yards with the wreckage of the jH
carriage and pieces of tho red lining of H
tho Minister's official overcoat. tH
A few yards from M. Von Plehvc's
body lay a shapeless heap of the coach- JH
man's remains. jH
On Wny to Visit Emporor. fjM
M. Von Plehve was on his way to jH
visit the Emperor. The tragedy oc-
curred on the Zalalkonski prospect, a tH
broad thoroughfaro leading up to the jl
Warnaw dopot, whemco the road turns
sharply to the left toward the Baltic
railroad 9tatlon. The exact spot at jH
which tho outrage occurred Is Just be- WmW
fore tho bridge spanning the circular jH
canal, on tho other side of which both
stations are situated. jH
Know Minister's Movements. jH
Tho bomb thrower must have known fH
perfectly well that Minister Von Plehve flH
would pass the spot this morning, for IH
the Minister makes his report to the Vl
Emperor every Thursday. JH
The Infernal machine was thrown jH
with deadly accuracy and the assassin jH
was favored by the fact that traffic jH
hero is nlways of the heaviest owing to jH
tho crooalng of lines of surface cars and Hl
tho continuous stream of heavy trucks. Vl
M. Von Plehvo was always appre- IH
hcnslve of attempts upon his life and jH
used to drive as rapidly ns possible. Tho
coachman, however, was compelled to
go slow at this point jH
