A TERRORIST'S ACT IN WARSAW
fearon von Nolken, Chief ef Police,
Has a Deadly Missie Thrown Into
His Carriage and is Seriously In
jured, But is Likely to Recover-A
Bomb Had Previously Been Thrown

Bring the Chief to the Scene
Thrower of the Second Bomb Es
Warsaw, By Cable.-? bomb was
thrall into the carriage of Baron von
Nolken, chief of Police of Warsaw, at
8 o'clock Sunday evening.
According to the latest information,
ithe attack on Baron von Nolken was
the result of an elaborate conspiracy
of the revolutionary party. Shortly
before 8 o'clock tonight, an elegantly
dressed man went to the police sta
tion at Praga, a large suburb of War
saw, on the other side of the Vistula,
and threw a bomb into the court yard
of the station, wounding seven per
sons, two of them dangerously. The
man started to run away, but was
caught by the captain of the station.
He was found to be a Jew, but his
identity has not been discovered. A
telephone message, was immediately
sent to Baron von Nolken, at the city
hall, informing him of the outrage.
Baron von Nolken, accompanied by
a police official, took a carriage and
started immediately for Praga. When
passing the castle where the Gover
nor General resides, a man standing
on the pavement threw a bomb at
the carriage. Baron von Nolken, who
was sitting on the side nearest the
assailant, received the full charge of
the'bomb, while his companion es
caped unhurt. The coachman was
thrown from the box and the carriage
Baron von Nolken was removed to
the city hall and doctors were sum
moned, who found he had received
Injuries which are believed to be seri
ous on the head, the right arm and
leg. ^Meanwhile the police official ac
companying Baron von Nolken saw
the. bomb thrower fleeing, and pursued
and caught up with him, but the crim
inal proved stronger and tore himself
away. Another policeman fired twice
after him without result. Half an
hour later a man was found dead in
Sowia street, whom the police believe
to be the bomb thrower. The police
think the man shot himself to escape
Would Refuse G ft.
Columbus, O., Special.-Rev. Dr.
Washington Gladden, pastor of the
First Congregational church of Col
umbus, and moderator of the General
Council of Congregational churches cf
the United States in a sermon deliv
ered Sunday, discussed the gift of
$100,000 made by a prominent capital
JaL-to the^Anlepican Board or Missions.
"The money proffered to our board
of missions comes out of a colossal
estate, whose foundations were laid
in the most relentless repacity known
to modern commercial history.
"The United States government is
engaged in a strenuous attempt to fer
ret out and punish this injustice. And
the people of the United States have
a tremendous battle on their hands
with the corporation's greed, which
has entrenched itself in this strong
hold, and has learned to use the rail
ways for the oppression and spolia
tion of the people.
"And now, on the eve of this battle,
they are asked to accept a great gift
of money from the man who, more
completely than any other, representa
the system they are summoned to
"I hope they are not mean enough
to take this money and then turn
around and fight him. I hope they are
not so faithless to their obligations
as to take his money and shut their
mouths or become his apoligists.
"We do not want this man's money.
To accept it will be to work the con
tempt of millions of honest men; to
reject it will strengthen our Church
in the affection and respect of millions
who are inclined to doubt whether
the Churches love God more than
"Our mission will be richer and
stronger without it than with it, and
we shall lose nothing by our loyalty
to the things unseen and eternal."

FLOOD AT PITTSBURG
One of the Worst Experiences the Iron
City Has Had in Year6 Threatens
as a Result of Torrents Pouring
Down the Monongahela.
Pittsburg, Special.-Pittsburg is
threatened with one of the worst floods
in years. At 10 o'clock Fore
caster Frankridge predicts over 30 feet.
He does not expect over 35 feet, if that
much. During the early hours Tues
day, the water began to recede from the
rise in the Alleghany, but a fresh im
petus was given to the rush torrents
by a rainfall of nearly two inches over
the entire water-shed of the Mononga
hela river. Tuesday night about 50
miles above Pittsburg the Monongahela
was rising eight inches an hour, and at
the harbor here the gauges show a rise
of nearly three inches per hour.
Should the river re?ch the predicted
height, street car traffic between this
city and surrounding towns will be
almost suspended, while the railroads
up the Monongahela valley will have
to suspend traffic. Already a number
of mills have shut down, as a resuU
of the water putting out the fires.
From three to five feet more of water
is expected -up the valley, and a total
of 20.000 men are likely to be idle.
Hundreds of houses in Allegheny, on
the south side, and in McKeesport and
other suburbs, are surrounded by from
two to eight feet of water, the occu
pants living in the second stories. In
some places the water has entered the
upper rooms, and homes are being
abandoned for the time being. No fa
talities have. been reported today.
Scores of business houses have their
basements flooded, and the loss will
be heavy. The crest of the flood ?3

Cheers For Kuropatkin.
Harbin, By Cable.-At the departuro
southward of General Kuropatkin,
crowds of thousands of civilians and
soldiers gathered at the station and
gave him a great ovation. Above thun
dering hurrahs were heard cries of
"God send you happiness," "Good-bye,
brother," "Good-bye, father." As the
train started, soldiers rushed forward
in a surging crowd and grasped the
hand-rail of the general's car, throwing
their fur caps in the air and running
some distance with the car. The scene
made a deep impression on General Ku
ropatkin, down whose face tears
streamed. Removing his cap, he sa
luted again and again, and stood bare
headed on the platform of the car as
long as the train was in sight.
Residents of Harbin are uneasy, and
many of them are departing. Chinese
are withdrawing their deposits from
Chinese banks here.
Commission is Too Large.
Washington, Special. - Secretary
Taft made public a letter which he
has written "to the President concern
ing complaints made by Dr. C. A.
L. Reed ' regarding the work of the
isthmian canal commission. In the
course of his letter, Secretary Taft
said that many of the things complain

the control of the canal under one
head, or at least under a commission
composed of not more thad three

SKINNER RELEASED ON BONO
Peculiar Circumstances Proceeding
Killing of Miller D. Anderson
Brought Out at the Hearing.
Barnwell, Special.-Mr. Jomes H.
Skinned, who killed Mr. Miller D. An
derson near Dunbarton, applied for bail
before Judge D. A. Townsend. The tes
timony that was taken at the inquest,
together with numerous affidavits, was
read and commented upon by the attor
neys, when the judge announced that
he would grant bail, which was fixed
at the sum of $1,500.
From some of the affidavits, it seems
that in January Mrs. Anderson was
calling ?in a friendly way on Mrs. Skin
ner, her neighbor; that Mr. Anderson,
learning that his wife was out calling
on Mrs. Skinner, wrote his wife to come
home; that he did not want her to call
on such people. This note offended the
Skinner family who, subsequently,
when they met Mr. Anderson in Dun
barton,..refused to speak to him. This
enraged Mr. Anderson, who used such
gross and insulting language that Mr.
Skinner demanded of him a retraction,
.and this brought on a fisticuff, wherein
Mr. Anderson was severely thrashed.
A number of witnesses swore that
Mr. Anderson threatened to take Mr.
Skinner's life and that these threats
were communicated to Mr. Skinner.
Defendant states in his affidavit that
on morning of homicide Mr. Anderson
was at Dunbarton; that in order to
avoid him he arranged to drive to his
farm; that he got his gun and some
shells that had been loaded by some
friends who had been on a visit to him,
and took his little nephew in the bug
gy with him. That while on the way
he saw a buggy in front of him; that
he did not know whose buggy it. was
until he had driven up to it when Mr.
Anderson called to him and said: "You
took advantage of me before; we'll
settle it now," and drew his gun, when
defendant fired first. Defendant's
nephew swears to the same thing.
Mrs. Anderson, wife of deceased, was
in the buggy at the time deceased was
shot. She says Mr. Skinner overtook
them; that he drove close to the buggy
in which they were riding and, calling
to Mr. Anderson, said: "Do you want
to see me," and without another word
shot him. With her dead husband at
her side, her lonely drive back to Dun
barton was pathetic in the extreme.
Numerous affidavits were produced
setting out the character for peace of
Mr. Skinner and the rowdy character
of Mr. Anderson. At the June term the
case will probably be tried. The com
munity is shocked by this unfortunate
Springfield, Orangeburg County,
Special to Columbia State:
Tis quiet little town was the scene
Saturday of a sensational trial.
Norris Chavis, a young white man in
the employ of Mr. Connie Altman., who
lives a few miles from Springfield,
was arrested and brought before Mag
istrate Arnold Corbett on the charge
of an attempted assault upon the
4-year-old daughter of Mr. Altman.
As far as your correspondent can
ascertain, it was a well defined, though
unsuccessful attempt, Chavis, it is
said, was apprehended by Mr. Altman.
After several witnesses had been ex
amined, Chavis waived a preliminary
hearing and was bound over to the
higher court. He was placed in the
guard house, which is a flimsy affair,
,and during the night the prisoner
made his escape, and up to this hour
has not been captured.
; The community was deeply stirred
by the dastardly attempt, but there
was little talk of violence in any forn?
It is believed that the law would have
been allowed to take its course.
Telegrams from Orangeburg and Co
lumbia have been received indicadas
that a report of lynching had gone
abroad, but this is without foundation.
The child suffered no hurt.
Some Assessments Increased.
The State board of assessors ad
journed until April 1st when the work
of assessing for taxation the property
of railroad companies will be complet
ed. Some assessments were delayed
on account of the opinion of the at
torney general as to the application o'
the franchise tax law to interstate
The board raised the assessment for
the Columbia, Newberry & Laurens
road from $5,000 to $6,000 per mile; the
assessment of the Lancaster & Ches
ter road from $700 to $3,250, and the
Charleston & Western Carolina from
the Georgia line to Spartanburg was
made $8.000 per mile, and from the
Georgia line to Beaufort $7,500 per
The Southern Express company was
made $100 per mile, against $85 last
year. The assessment of the Pullman
Palace Car company was not changed
from $100 per mile, or a total valua
tion of $148,643 for the State.
The Postal and Western Union Tele
graph companies were not changed,
the assessment being $35 per mile of
wire in the State. The American Tel
egraph and Telephone company was
valued at $90,000, against $65,635 last
vear. The Southern Bell Telephone
company was valued at $400,000,
against $215,5&2 last year.
The other ossessments remained the

change made in the assessment of the
Seaboard Air Line, who..; attorneys

All Balk at Indemnity.
Moscow, By Cable-With the excep
tion of The Moscow Gazette, practical
ly all the newspapers of this city are
for peace, on condition that there be
neither cession of territory nor pay
ment of indemnity. At a banquet a
prominent merchant declared: "The
happiest end of the war would be im
mediate peace, but if the government
consents to indemnity we will throw
the bomb. Enough Russian gold has
been spent in Manchuria."
Japs Glad at Loomis' Success
' Tokio, By Cable.-General satisfac
tion is expressed at the success in plac
ing the foreign loan. The domestic loan
was oversubscribed several times and it
is probable a portion of it will be al
lotted to foreign subscribers. The for
eign applications amount to several
million dollars. The success of the for
eign and domestic loans strengthens
the feeling of confidence that Japan
will be able to finance the war without
difficulty or embarrassment.

COMMISSIONER GARFIELD'S REPORT
It Is Found to Be F ATO rabio to th? Great
The report of Commissioner of Cor
porations Garfield on the beef indus
try, after about eight inonths' ihves;
tlgation in Chicago and elsewhere^
shows that there has been au enormous
amount of exaggeration in the state
ments that have appeared for some
time past in regard to the beef busi
ness. This investigation was set on
foot by a resolution of the House of
Representatives adopted March 7,1904,
and the ascertained facts after a most
rigid examination of the methods and
general conduct of the business are
contained in a report covering 808
pages. Its figures and tables conclu
sively show that the popular belief in

ness which many think they enjoy, is
really without foundation.
The report made to President Roose
velt by Commissioner Garfield is real
ly the first official statement: of the ac
tual conditions of the beef business
that has been made, and as all the con
clusions arrived at are based, as shown
by him, upon data officially obtained,
there seems to be no reason why they
should not be regarded ns reliable and
in all respects trustworthy.
This report shows why the price of
both cattle and beef advanced to the
highest level ever known after the
short corn crop of 1901, and ?tates tint
because of the decrease in number of
cattle and also in decreased weight,
"the high prices of beef which caused
so much complaint among consumers
at this time were attributable wholly
to these abnormal cattle prices/'
All the figures of the live weight and
live cost of all dressed beef cattle were
obtained from actual killing records,
and all information of every kind ob
tained by the Commissioner was volun
tarily and freely offered by the pack
ers, all books of record and papers:
connected with the business having
been placed at his disposal.
To make certain that the results of
the investigation should be absolutely
accurate, the Commissioner states that
a double method of ascertaining profits
was adopted, and, without going into
detail here, it is found that the conclu
sion arrived at shows an average profit
of 99 cents per head. The Commis
sioner says "tue close parallelism In
the results of the two methods of as
certaining the profits confirms com
pletely the correctness of the general
conclusions." It is clearly established
that "Western packers do not control
more than half of the beef supply of
the United States," the conclusion of
the Commissioner being that the busi
ness done by them amounts to "about
45 per cent." of the total slaughter of
The whole report is extremely inter*
esting and well worthy of careful pe
rusal. As an official report it mny be
regarded as worthy of confidence, and
lt certainly leads the reader to the
conclusion arrived, nt by the Commis
sioner when he states that "the capi
talization of none of these concerns ls
excessive as compared with its actual
investment," and that from thorough
and rigid examination of original en
tries in books and papers to rrhich ho
had access there was also "indirect evi
dence that the profits of the packers
in their beef business are less than is
frequently supposed," as shown by
comparison between the total profits
and the total amount of sales.

vance never works overtime.
Effects of Prosperity.
In the six years of the country's
greatest prosperity, from 1897 to 1903,
average prices of breadstuffs advanced
65 per cent.; meats, 23.1 per cent.;
dairy aud garden products, 50.1 per
cent, and clothing 24.3. All these were
products of the farmer and stockman,
who profited more than any other class
of the community by Ibese advances.
The miner benefited 42.1 per cent, by
that advance in the nverage price of
metals. The only decrease in the aver
age prices of commodities in that pe
riod was in railway freight rates, which
decreased from .798 per ton-mile in
1S97 to .763 In 1903, a loss of 4.4 per
cent. The report of the Interstate
Commerce Commission shows that the
average Increase In the pny of railroad
employes in that period was a trifle
above 8.5 per cent. ...
