THREW TWO BOMBS
CHIEF OF POLICE OF WARSAW
Elaborate Conspiracy of Revolutionary
Party—Police Caught Bomb Throw
er, but He Broke Away and Later
Committed Suicide —Affair Causes
Warsaw, March 27. —A bomb was
thrown into the carriage of Baron yon
Nolken, chief of police of Warsaw, at
8 o'clock Sunday evening. The baron
was severely wounded.
According to latest information, the
attack on Daron yon Nolken was the
result of an elaborate conspiracy of
the revolutionary party. Shortly be
fore 8 o'clock an elegantly dressed
man went to the police station at
Praga, a large suburb of Warsaw, on
the other side of the Vistula, and
threw a bomb into the courtyard of
the station, wounding seven persons,
two of them dangerously. The man
started to run away, but was caught
by the captain of the police. He was
found to be a Jew, but his identity has
not yet been discovered.
A telephone message was immedi
ately sent tn Baron yon Nolken at the
city hall informing him of the outrage,
Baron yon Nolken, accompanied by a
police official, took a carriage and
started immediately for Praga. When
passing the castle where the governor
general resides a man standing on the
pavement threw a bomb at the car
riage. Baron yon Nolken, who was sit
ting on the side nearest the assailant,
received the full charge of the bomb,
while his companion escaped unhurt.
The coachman was thrown from the
box and the carnage was smashed.
Baron yon Nolken was removed to
the city hall and doctors were sum
moned, who found he had received in
juries on the head, neck, arm and leg,
which are believed to be serious.
Meantime, the police official accom
panying Baron Nolken saw the
bomb thrower fleeing and pursued
and caught up with him, but the crim
inal proved the stronger and tore him
self away. Another policeman fired
twice after him without result. Half
an hour later a man whom the police
believe to be the bomb thrower, was
found dead in Sowia street. The po
lice think the man shot himself to
A girl who was passing the spot
when the bomb was thrown was
wounded by splinters and was taken
to the hospital.
According to the theory of the police
the revolutionists calculated upon
Baron Yon Nolken going to Praga on
learning of the explosion of the bomb
at the station there, and knew he
must pass the castle, that being the
only route by which he could reach
the only bridge across the Vistula.
The affair caused great excitement.
A popular rumor says that the revolu
tionaries adopted this course of in
forming the police that th<>y have
more bombs besides those discovered
in the Powonski cemetery Saturday.
Baron Yon Nolken is very unpopu
lar. He is hated by the masses of the
Polish people, who held him respon
sible for the sanguinary suppression of
the disturbances here at the end of
January. Fie has been here only a
year, having come from St. Peters
burg, where he was chief of the mount
ed division of the police.
According to later information, the
bomb which exploded at the Praga
police station, was not thrown into
the courtyard, but into a room in the
court station, where the men assem
bled when on duty. The furniture as
well as one wall was destroyed. The
bomb thrower, in trying to escape,
met a policeman and shot twice,
wounding the officer in the stomach.
The prisoner himself was wounded,
and has been placed in the hospital.
The man who was killed in Sowia
street proves to be a plain clothes
policeman, who was seen pursuing
Baron Yon Nolken's assailant. The
police believe that the latter turned
on the policeman and shot him dead.
Baron Yon Nolken's injuries are
serious, but it is thought he will re

by the Associated Press dispatch from

Considerable excitement has been
caused in London by the publication of
a Tokio dispatch from the correspond
ent of the London Daily Telegraph, in
which he states that word has been re
ceived that a fire which started in Har
bin last Wednesday is still burning,
and that a large section of the city and
enormous quanties of stores destined
for the Russian army have been de
stroyed. The report is not confirmed
from any sources, and inquiries ad
dressed to St. Petersburg brought the
response that nothing could ,be learned
there as to the truth or falsity of the
statements. If true, it is likely to
prove a serious matter to General Line
vitch, as the Russian oommandei's re
serve stores of supplies were all stored
by the single track line of the trans
siberian railroad. The Russian troops
at the fornt are none too well spuplied
with food and ammunition, and an
other prolonged conflict with the Jap
anese would undoubtedly exhaust all

that the Russian army sacrificed gen
eral commissariat stores to the amoaut
of $1,250,000 and stores for an army

The boots and uniforms among the
stores, of which the army was in need,
arrived from Europe four days before
the Russian retirement from Mukden.
General Kurobatkin ordered the remov

executed An investigation will be
