Special to Tho Tribune.
PARK CITY, July 23. The St. Louis On
tario holfltlng works wore blown up at 1
o'clock today by some persons who
seemed to have a desire to destroy prop
erty. P. J., Lapelt, who has charge of the
property and the three men cmp1oj;eil In
tho mlno had been to dinner and wero Just

and 6aw the sides of the building and rocf

discovered thut giant powder with a long
fuse attached haJ bfrn put In tha building
and set off. perhaps w 1th. tho Idea that tho
explosion would take place about the time
that the crew returned to work.
Investigation showed thnt n man had
come up the trail from the Provo river
and returned, new-mnde tracks being per
fectly Tlaln, as last night's heavy rain
hero had obliterated all old tracks.
The force of the explosion was suffi
ciently great to throw the corrugated Iron
sides of tho building out, to tenr off part
of the roof, and to destroy the hoisting
bucket and a heavy mine car which stood
near the collar of the shaft.
The Park City officers were notified and
went over at once, but as tho hoisting
works were on the other Bide of tho Wa
satch line they could do nothing.

Sandy Point Farms the Scene of a
Costly Entertainment for
Party of 400.
NEWPORT, R. L, July 29. Sandy
Point Farms, the summer home of Mrs.
Reginald Claypole Vanderbilt, was the
scene of a magnificent and costly ball
this evening, a record breaker In many
ways and the colony of millionaire
families here was staggered by its ex
travagance. In giving the ball Mrs.
Vanderbilt proved herself to be one of
the most powerful young matrons here.
Was Costly Function.
Formal balls never have been in
vogue In Newport, yet the Vanderbilt
ball was as conventional and as costly
as If held In a Fifth avenue mansion
Instead of In a rambling frame house
overhanging the sea. Mrs. Astor has
entertalnod with delightful dances at
Beechwood, and she insisted that an
air of Informality pervade them, but
young Mrs. Vanderbilt aimed at and
gave an Imposing entertainment.
Three Hundred Invited.
Three hundred Invitations had been
issued, mostly to the younger portion
of socloty, but the young host and
hostess did not forget the elders, and
among the older guests were Mrs, As
tor, Mrs, James P. Kernochan. Mrs.
Elbridge T. Gerry and other of the older
women of society. Between these two
classes came the set In which Mrs.
Herman Oelrlchs, Mrs. Fish, Mrs. O.
H. P. Belmont and Mrs. Richard Gnm
brlll are leaders, and It also was In at
tendance. Hugo Ballroom.
When Sandy Point Farms was built
It was Intended as a house for enter
taining, and the whole lower floor was
thrown Into a huge ballroom. It Is
surrounded by a broad veranda, where
there were cushioned chairs and couches
for the guests who sit out dances. Sup
per was served on the veranda and In
gay little tents of heavy striped silk,
which, by the way, did service at the
marriage of Miss Gladys Brooks and
E. Van Rensselear Thayer in Septem
ber of last year.
Feature of the Affair.
The feature of the ball was the cotil
lion led by Elisha Dyer, Jr., and Harry
Lehr. Dyer, who helped the young
Vanderbllts with their arrangements,
danced with Mrs. "Reggie," and Lehr
lead from the other end of the hall with
Mrs. Alfred Gwyne Vanderbilt. A min
uet was danced, sixteen persons wear
ing the fancy costumes of Colonial
days. Mrs. Glen Collins, formerly Miss
Nathalie Schenck. who Is now staying
with the Vanderbllts, arranged It as a
surprise. The cotillion favors were
most beautiful. Mrs. Vanderbilt bought
them when In Paris on her honeymoon,
and gold pencils, gold cigar clips, gold
mounted powder puffs and gauze fans
were among the mementos she gave
This gorgeous ball served the com
bined purpose of the houscwarmlng of
Sandy Point Farms and the coming out
of Mrs. Vanderbilt as a matron.
BALANCES IN TREASURY.
Secretary Shaw and the President
Consider This Question.1
WASHINGTON. D. C. July 29.-Condl-tlons
of the treasury, as regards tho work
ing balance In the depai-tment, were con
sidered with tho President by Secretary
Shaw. Thus far, during July, tho expen
ditures of tho Govcrnmont have exceeded
the receipts by about $2i),000.000. As a re
sult, the working balance of the treasury
has fallen bolow SSO.000.toO. This fact has .
suggested tho possibility of making a call
on national bank dcpoultorlcs for a part
of tho deposits of the Government In their
vaults. Secretary Shaw Is convinced,
however, that no call will be necessary,
perhaps for a considerable time, and so
informed the President.
Today's statement of tho treasury
shows: Available cash balnnco, JII9,W71,

for Wholesale Murder of OfH
1 cials, Excopting Czar.
ST. PETERSBURG, July 29. The
name of the assassin of Interior Minis
ter Von Plehve Is given by the Bourse
Gazette as Prozeff, but this Is not con
firmed by the police, who, If satisfied
that they have established the Identity
or even tho nationality of the mufderer,
are carefully guarding the facts per
haps to throw his accomplices off tho
Plot a Far-Reaching One.
The general public Is disposed to re
gard the crime as Intimately connected
with the far-reaching terrorist plot re
vealed last summer by the arrest of
Gerschunln, the Russian revolutionary
agitator at Kleff, where he had gone to
organize an attempt on the Emperor's
life at Snraoff during the ceremonies
Incident to the canonization of St. Sera
phim. The subsequent trial estab
lished the fact that Gerschunln was tho
head of a murderous conspiracy similar
to the Nihilist conspiracies of the early
'80s, the object of which was to create
a reign of terror In Russia by killing
Ministers, Governors, and the Emperor
himself. Gerschunln Is a Jew and was
a former petty official of St. Petersburg.
Beginning' of Conspiracy.
The perpetrators of the murder, as
well as the victims, were to be selected
by lot. The series of crimes resulting
from this conspiracy began with the
attempt on the life of Privy Councillor
Pobledonostzeff, chief procurator of the
Holy Synod, who was llred at by a man
named Logowekl March 22. 1901, and In
cluded the killing of M. Bogdanovltch.
ex-Governor-General of Ufa, European
Russia, who was assassinated May 19,
1903: M. Bogollepoff, former Minister of
Public Instruction, who was shot by
Peter Karpovlch February 27, 1901, and
died March 15 of the same year, from
the effects of his wound, and M. Slpla
gulne, Mr. Von Plehve's predecessor,
assassinated April 16, 1902, by a student
named Balmashoff, nnd the attempts on
Prince Obolensky, now Governor-General
of Finland, while Governor of
KharkhofT, he being llred at four times
August 11, 1902. and Prince' Galltzsln,
Goycrnor-General of the Caucasus, who
was stabbed by three natives In the
outskirts of Tlflls, October 23, 1903.
Murdor of Finnish Governor.
The more recent murders of Cover-
nor-General Bobrlkeff of Finland, who j
was shot by Eugene Schaumann June
10, and of Vlce-Oovernor AndrlefT of
Ellzabethpol, Trans-Caucasia, assassi
nated July 17 last, probably were not
connected with this plot. Gerschunln
was captured and he and two others,
one of whom waB a woman, were tried,
convicted and sentenced to death, but
the Emperor, with Van Plehve's acqui
escence, commuted the sentences to fif
teen years' imprisonment.
Gerschunln Is now serving his sen
tence In Schlusselberg prison.
Later the correspondent of the Asso
ciated Press learned that while the
Identity and nationality of the assassin
and his accomplice are still not definite
ly established, the police are making
progress In unraveling the skein. They
are amazed to find how far-reaching
was the conspiracy. There Is nothing
yet, however, to prove Its connection
with that of Gerschunln. The docu
ments found show the existence of a
wholesale plot to murder Ministers,
but the most remarkable feature In that
It did not Include the Emperor, who Is
distinctly declared to be "unlnvolvcd."
Accomplices Are Captured.
The capture of the accomplices of
the murderer was effected under cir
cumstances Rhowlng that the conspira
tors pursued the very plun followed nt
the time of the assassination of Alex
ander II. The accomplices then were
posted at several street corners In order
that If one mun failed another might
succeed. The same plan was adopted

lime. Plehvc, widow of tho deceased
statesman, arrived here today. She Is
broken down, but Is culm. The sight of
her husband's remains caused the wid
ow, who suffers from heart trouble, a
shock, and she fell to the floor' In a
fainting condition. Doctors revived her
and later she Avent to the Minister's
villa on the Islands of the Neva.
The funeral of Von Plehve has been
fixed for July 31. Requiem masses will
be celebrated dally. The Emperor Is
expected to attend this evening's services.

fViOYER KflAKES STATEMENT.
President Western Federation of Mi
ners Wants Members Protected.
DENVER. Colo, July 29. The News
today prints the following from an in
terview with President Charles H.
Mover of the Western Federation of
Miners, who Is here to confer with oill
clala of that organization:
"It Is time to call out the troops again
to protect our men In. the Cripple Creek
district. There Is no legal authority
there now. Tho Sheriff's officers can
not control things. A mob controls and
our men are being subjected to whlte
capplngs, whippings and every sort of
brutal treatment," said Mr. Mover. "If
the Governor had wanted to be fair he
would have ended martial law, V with
drawn, the troops and left, say, fifty sol
diers there to deal impartially with all
violators of the law. Instead of that he
withdrew all the troops and left the
commission and mob In control, leaving
our helpless men to the mercy of that
mob. He simply Indorses the mob,
asks us to call off the strike, and will
not allow our men to go back. To call
the strike off would be to acknowledce
that we were wrong; that the treatment
we had received was right, and that we
got what was due us.
"The Governor Ignores the real issue.
He asks that Ave call off the strike be
cause he has called off the military, and
then let the people decide who Is right.
If the people were to decide that the
Governor's military' policy was right
that would not settle a single question
at Issue. Let the Governor, the mine
owners and the Citizens' alliance sub
mit the questions that caused us to
strike the eight-hour day and the right
to organize. If he had asked for a de
cision on these questions I might have
called off the strike.
"We have not yet taken up tho matter
of calling off the strike, but I do not see
why it should be called off. If It was
just In the beginning It Is just now and
Its continuance Is just. The Governor
and his Adjutant-General convict them
selves. They have been saying that the
strike was over, yet they ask us to call
off tho strike, which they say does not
"But' I believe that our men will go
back anyhow. If they do go back, un
armed and peaceable, as they would go,
the Governor will have a chuuee to
show the people whether he Is fair or
