(By AMoclatea Pre m.)
ST. PETERSBURG, August 20.?Sat?
urday's unsuccessful attempt on tho Ufo
of Promlor Stolypin with its sickening,
useless ?laughter of thirty-two persons,
was followed to-night by another revo?
lutionary outrage, In which General Mln,
commander of the Semlnovsky Ouard
Regiment,, and, who, since his promotion?
al bo general, has been attached as a
personal adjutant to the suite of the
Emperor, was killed on the station plac
form al Petorhof by a young woman who
llred flvo shots into his body from an
au ion w tic revolver and then, without
resistance, submitted to, arrest. The cap?
ture of tho girl was effected by General
Mln's wife, who held her unUl tho ar?
rival of nn officer.
This was the third successive attempt
on the llfo of General Mln, who was con?
demned to death by the terrorists Imme?
diately after tha Moscow revolt, last
December, on account of tho stern re?
pression practiced by a battalion under
his command, and especially for the
wholesale execution of persons .condemned
by drum-head court-martial for being
caught with arras In their hands.
Girl Very Calm.
General Min was returning from tho
capital to hi? summer residence at
Peterhof, and had Just greeted his wife
and daughter on the platform, when a
young woman?almost a girl?approached
him from behind, and fired two shots Into
his back and then three more into his
body as it eanit to the ground. Further
shots v/ero prevented by Madame Mln,
who threw herself upon the murderess,
and seized the hand which held the pis?
Tho woman did not attempt to escapo
hut she cautioned Madame Mln not to
lout-h a hand-bag which 8he had placed
?n tho platform before shooting tho gen?
eral, explaining that it contained a bomb.
To the police the girl acknowledged that
?he had dono the deed, saying sho had
executed the sentence of tho Fighting Or?
ganization of the Socialist Revolutionists,
but sho refused to give her name.
By a remarkable mischance, General
Mln only last week, after the conclusion
of tho maneuvers at Krasnoye-Sclo, dis-"
missed the body-guard which had ac?
companied him slnco the first attempt
was made on his life, saying that the
ordinary police of Peterhof would be
sufiiclent to guard him and his villa at
Condemned by Terrorists.
Tho death sentence had long hung over
tho head of General Mln, owing to the
disfavor into which ho had fallen because
of alleged harsh methods and cruelties.
It was Cenoral (Colonel) Mln who com?
manded the? Semlnovsky Regiment when
tho people wore shot down near the
technological Instituto in St. Petersburg
on October 31st, and who. It was stated,
wanted to set tho buildings of tho Insti?
tuto on fire and roast the students Insldo.
Mln was sent by the Emperor to sup?
press tho disorders at Sarato aftor the
assassination of Lieutonant-Gonernl Sak
aroft in Decombor last, and when the
trotiblo at that placo was quelled was dis?
patched at tho ond of December to Mos?
cow to assist In putting down the up?
On April 2-lth, a member of the fight?
ing' organisation of the revolutionists,
disguised . as an officer, who had called
at Mln's resldonco several times and
requested to see him, exolted tho sus?
picion of tho attaches of the household
and was arrostod. It developed that lio
was a revolutionist and was armed with
h revolver and a dagger.
On July 18th, last, It was reported that
lomo of the soldier? of tho Semlnovsky
' guard at Krasnoye-Solo had served no?
tice on General Mln that thay Intended
to kill him at the first opportunity for
forcing- them to murder their fellow-cltl
eons in tho Moscow revolt, and that Min,
In fear of hiR life, had, fled tho empp.

Their Custom, They. Found

On her way to Highland Springs
Methodist Church to teach her Sunday
school class yesterday , morning, and
evidently thinking over the subject lesson
for the morning, Miss Vinnla Agnes
Emerick, of Highland Springs, wa3 struck
by car Ko. 143, of the Seven Pines line,
carried on tho fender fey about thirty
feet, and* thrown a few feet from the
track on'the south side, where she lay
unconscious until friends rushed to her
aid and picked her up! .
Tho accident occurred just a short
distance from the office of Dr. O. T.
Collins, who la away on his vacation at
present and whose place Is being ?up
pllcd by Dr. R. S., Fitzgerald, of No.
_T0tf East Broad Street,
Miss Emerick /liad passed by Dr.
Collins's homo, and there1 engaged In 'a
few minutes' conversation with Dr. Fitz?
She was In her usual happy mood, and
asked Dr. Fitzgerald cheerily if he would
go to Sunday school. lie replied chat
he would go In a few minutes, and then
went to answer the telephone.
Miss Emerick proceeded on her way,
taking bor route along the car track.
Fifteen feet ahead of ^tcr was Mr. P. S.
Rtside, a ?tore-keeper " of Highland
Springs, who was also on his. way to
Was in Deep Thought.
Miss Erncrick was evidently . in deep,
thought, for she had pusr head bent down,'
oaVlf Bho wore ; pondering 'over . some',
subject. Car No. ?43 came up behind?.,
and, ' accordlftg-' to the majority- of " the
witnesses, the motorman began Tinging
his bell and whistling vlolenUy. Mr.
Rcado moved from the line, but the
unfortunate young woman kept straight
on between the tracks. The car struck
her squarely. She fell backwards In the
fender, whldh carried her about thirty
feot, and then threw her out a few feet
from tho track.
Tho car was bound for Richmond, and
was going at tho usual rate of speed
Just before the accident occurre'd.
Several eye-witnesses to tho accident
testified to the fact that the motorman,
?. J. Austin, gave violent warning with
his bell and whistle, and that when
he saw, too late, that the accident was
unavoidable, he reversed his current and
applied tho brakos. The car failed to
stop, (howover, and it slid for fifteen
feet before striking Miss Emerick. The
motorman was unable to halt It for about
125 or 160 feet after reversing his current
and applying his brakes, and It went
Borne distance after hurling the body of
tho young woman from the fender. The
umbrella which Miss Emerlok was carry?
ing, flew up and struck the motorman In
the face, as she fell In the fender.
Unconscious to Death.
A small boft' ran Into Dr. Fitzgerald's
office and told him that a lady had been
hurt by a car, and tho physician Imme?
diately rushed out. Ho found Miss
Emerick unconscious and had her carried
Into his office. An examination of the
wounds showed that her left leg was
broken in two places Just above the
ankle, that her left eye was badly cut
and bruised, and that she had suffered a
fracture of the baso of tho skull. It was
tho last wound that evidently caused her
death, said Dr. Fitzgerald, as It probably
also produced a hemorrhage of t?ie brain.
The physician worked over her heroically,
but the young ?woman never regained con?
sciousness, and died at 11:37 o'clock, an
hour and seventeen minutes after the
Everybody In Highland Springs was soon
on tho scene of tho accident, and for a
while there was much confu.ion, Mo?

Sef??iior F?onrS?^fb Carolina-Discuisises Race Question
In Indiana, Speaking In Midst
Of Pouring Rain.
(Special to Tho Timos-Dlspatch. )
ANDERSON,, IND., August 26;?Beforo
5,000 persons; at tho Indiana Spiritualists
Chesterfield Camp this afternoon, Sena?
tor Tlllman talked nearly two hours on
"The race problem." Twice he wa-s In?
terrupted by showers.
Finally the crowd scattered for shelter,
but while rain beat in his face- the Sena?
tor shouted: "Let me add tho doxology
that South' Carolina has white domina?
tion and will hold It In spite of h-1."
, Of Ute equality of races and the raco
question he ?/aid, neither question was
settled by tho Civil War. Some one
stopped him and suggested ho meant to
say "Rebellion." : .
"I did not moan rebellion," hotly replied
the Senator, "for there was no rebellion.
It was simply a mean, bloody war, be?
tween brethren, got up in the North,
and ought to have been prevented."
Senator Tlllman said education would
not uplift the negro, because this was
no foundation for education in tho Af?
rican. Another theory-he heard was to
amalgamate whites and blacks by mar?
riage. Like amalgamation in Cuba, he
said, the result of such marriage would
be a race of mongrels.
"Would you see us mongrels?" h? asked.
"We of the Soutli would seo you In h?1
first. We do not agree to tho idea of
annihilation . of the African from our
country by driving lilm back to Africa.
He does not want to go,. u.nd' tho South
does not want him to leave. To do so
would paralyze. Industrial activity In
Southern States." '.,'';'
Of Vlce-Prosldent Fairbank's address to
a negro institution at Columbus, O., whero
education was urged for tho negroes.
Senator Tlllman said in an interview:
"And -when tho African gets education
ho starts for the three P's?preaching,
politics or ponltentiary."
