The statement was handed by Thaw

Woman Made Former Attempt.
An attempt was made on the life of
the admiral Feb. 9 last. A woman ap
peared at his official residence during
the afternoon of that day and sent in
her card, saying she was the daughter
of a rear admiral at St. Petersburg who
was an old acquaintance of Chouknin
On entering the' admiral's office the
woman drew a rapid fire pistol and
fired four shots at him, each bullet
missing the mark. As she turned to
escape the woman was killed by an
orderly on duty at Crouknin's door.
The crime beyond doubt was political.
Had Been Threatened. .
When the sentences imposed on the
sailors for the Kniaz Potemkin mutiny
were before the admiral for review,
formal notice was served on him that
if he approved the death sentence he
would share the same fate. Chouknin,
however, approved the sentences, and
several intimations afterward reached
him to the effect that the terrorists
were merely waiting for a favorable
opportunity to kill him. Some time
elapsed before the police were able to
establish the identity of the woman
who attempted Admiral Chouknin's
life, but it finally became known she
was a Hebrew.

St. Petersburg. July 11. There was
wild consternation at the imperial pal

discovery in the garden of that palace
of several bombs filled with dynamite,
The excitement and dread were in
describable . It was obvious that the
bombs must have been placed there
by some one connected with the pal
ace, either as officer, guard or serv
ant, and everyone equally was under
suspicion. General Trepoff, the com
