Harliuaun :i .Soap Peddler.
Leo Hartrnann, the nihilist, ha? been
identified in New York in a soap pedler.
He has hceu making a poor living in that
way for months, but under an assumed
name, and quite unknown to the police; but
he was tempted to make a speech in the re?
cent meeting denunciatory of Secretary-of- \
State Bayard for arranging a treaty with j
Russia to extradite assassins of czars, and
recognition has ensued. He is short and
slight, and of a nervous temperament. He !
usually wear; a full blonde beard, and when j
he first came to America he dressed well
and tastily. At present he is inclined to the
unkempt sbabbiness that distinguishes most
of the radical agitators when they have not
been refined by the regular habits of prison
life. Hartmann taik3 freely about the
events that led to his Ilight to this country.
He had uot bc?ti ia New York long be?
fore he found himself compelled to keep
quiet, for a bard attempt was made to bring
an attempt upon the Czar's lifo under the
head of the extraditable laws. Hartmann'e
friends maintained that he had to ilee from
Russia "on account o: a political ollence ;
thai his attempt to remove the Czar was but
a part of the acknowledged programme of a
polical party. And so it was, hut thero is no
knowing just bow the aliair might have
turned out could Havtmann have been found
when the court;; were ashed to make a pre?
cedent on the case. Never did hunted man
disappear so completely, and whtlo police
and detectives were scouring tho East Side
for him, he was amusing himself by learning
English and reading editorial comment on
himself in 3Ir. Swinton's library. When tho
chase was abandoned, for it was plain that
the government would hesitate, if not ro
fuse to surrender Hartmann, the nihilist re?
turned to the light, but ho did not make
much fuss about it. He sajs that bis at?
tempt upon the Czar's life was the fourth
that enduring monarch escaped. The eighth
killed him. Hartman::'* e?ort occurred in
November, 1879. A little mote than a year
before he had escaped from prison where he
was coniined for his political opinions. The
policy ol terrorism was originated and in?
augurated ia 1S71>, and Hartmauu was one
of its tirst expounders. After two or three
futile efforts the revolutionary parly, which
was centered at St. Petersburg, deemed it
ad visible, on account of the growing severi?
ty of the police, to break up and. scatter its
members through the country. Hartmann
went to a village on the Volga, where not
long after a secret congress of the revolu?
tionists wa3 held. The organization was
strengthened in various way-?, one of which
was the election cf a supreme council of
thn-e persons. This council had absolute
control over the members, and all were
bound to do its bidding without question.
At its head was a woman, SophiePerovsky.
since executed for complicity in the success?
ful attempt upon the Czar. Hartmann was
eiec'ed a member of the next highest au?
thority?the executive committee?and
after the adjournment of tho congress
be laid before it a new plan for
presenting the work against the Czar. It
was in brief to construct a mine under his
imperial highness and blow him up. The
idea took at once, and Hartmann wr.3sentto
St. Peter-burg to examine the sj-stem of
canals there with a view to utilizing them in
some way. It was found impracticable on
account of the nature of the soil. His high?
ness was at that time in the Crimea, and the
nihilists, accordingly, sent out searchers
everywhere to determine by what route the
iJzar would return home. When it was
learned that he would take passage over the
Great Southern Railway, they bought a
small house near the track, just outside the
city of Aloscow. Hartmann and Sophie
Perovsky, who pretended to be his wife,
lived there and secreted with them a num?
ber of their fellow-conspirators. They had
1-jO feet of tunnel to construct in order to
get under the railway track. The difficul?
ties of the task may be imagined when it is
considered that it had to be done with the
I utmost secrecy. A transverse section of the
I tunnel was thirty-six inches broad at the
' base and fort3* six inches high, triangular in
shape. Tho miners had got. within seven
feet of the track, and were just under tho
edge of the high embankment on which the
read runs at that point, when they decided
that, there was not dynamite enough. The
explosive had been manufactured secretly in
St. Petersburg. One of the conspirators,
I named Goldenherg, was sent to the capital
j to get more. He was arrested soon after
his arrival. Meanwhile, the work on tho
tunnel was delayed, and the innocent look
ing neople in the little house near the
railroad were disturbed by the report
that the Czar had started for home.
There was nothi?g to do hut try the
mine in its incomplete state, and with a
smail charge, or see the work wasted. All
the conspirators but Sophie Petrovsky, and.
as Hartmann says, "one other"?Hartmann
himself, probably?left tho neighborhood,
j Copper cylinders seven feet long and six
! inches in diameter were filled with dyna
! mite and placed at the end of the tunnel.
I They were connected by wire with a gal
' vanic battery stationed in a barn at some
distance from the house. Sophie Petrovsky
! took up her station at the battery, while her
companion went up the track to watch for
the right train. Be was in sight of the barn
and could give a signal when to connect the
wires at the battery. Presently the train
came rushing along". It was the imperial
conveyance, sure enoueh, and when it was
directly over the mine the comrade gave
Petrovsky the signal. The connection was
made and the cars leaped into the air and
feii in a. confuse;], burning wreck at the foot
of the embankment. Nothing, not even
more dynamite, could have made it more
complete?except the presence of the Czar
in the train. At Moscow, fur some rea3on
he had sent the baggage tiain ahead of his
own cars, and was following safely ?long
.several miles behind v>hvn the explosion oc?
curred. But ihn two conspirators were
happily ignorant of this for a time, and they
made their wnj from the scene together hv
a succession <> transits through hack yards
to a thoroughfare, and lest themselves in
the city, convinced that they had rid their
country of its tyrant. Hatiniaiiti escaped,
bat most of bin companions were talt^n or!
remained to operate new plot3, finally to ha
succesful, and then on the scaffold to
pay for ir.

English bondholders ate trwl: avoring, through the
instrumentality of the council of fores: u hoi

With this object in view, the English bond?

their bonds and have authorized the council of j
foreign bondholders to act for them in the nego?
tiations which arc about to ba h"'l between a . o:u

It is most desirable that all bolders of Virginia

the effort to clloct an early settlement of the
State debt. To better accomplish this object, tin:
council of foreign bondholders earnestly request
the holders of Virginia bonds in America to co?
