A WELL PREPARED PLOT SEVERAL PERI AL UNDER MEMBERS OF THE IM GUARDS ARE PLACED ARREST MUTINEERS TO BE PUNISHED. H'ubllsherB' rressj Petersburg, Au. 11. Grand 5t. Duko Nicholas Nicholalevitch, presi dent of the council of national defense, narrowly escaped assassination at the hands of the imperial guards, in the guard camp ut Krasnoye-Selo. It appears that the grand duke was personally reviewing, maneuvering A&d putting the troops throuli blank GRAND DUKE NICHOLAS, firing practice, when he suddenly was startled by the wasp-like hiss of bul lets about his head. Fortunately neither himself nor his horse was touched. The com mar 1 to cease fir ing was immediately given, and the noldlers of the regiment were marcned tack to their Quarters, and an investi gation was begun in the hope of ascer taining from the barrels of tho rilles which of the soldiers fired ball cart ridges. Several arrest are understood to have been made. The bold attempt on the grand duke's life caused un immediate change in the plans of the emperor, who had arranged to f.:o to Krasnoye Selo and spend a week with the sol diers of his imperial guards. After tho preliminary investigations the military and naval prosecutors have decided to try by court martial no less than 2,000 soldiers and sailors ho participated in the Cronstadt and Sveaborg mutinies. The prospects of the men, however, have been bright ened by the decision of the emperor to appoint two extraordinary commis sions to investigate the causes of tho outbreaks at Cronstadt and Sveaborg, and to determine the responsibility for the demoralization. War Minister Rudiger and Minister of Marino Birllieff are said to bo ar riving at the same conclusion as Ad miral Skrydloff, the commander of tho Black sea fleet, that the officers arc xnoro to blame than the men. Afterwards it was definitely estab lished that tho shots were: fired by the First battalion of the sharpshooters of tho guard, who advanced in rushes, whllo making a sham attack on an in trenched position. Fully 100 shots vrero fired, but the impatience of the conspirators led them to open fire at such, a distance as to frustrnte their object. Before the maneuvers began all the ball cartridges were taken from the troops.

Tho violence of attacks on tho auto mobile, which in the last year has not caused as muny deaths as street car cause in a single fortnight, seems to be tho result of blind prejudice. Chicago Journal. Unless they adopt a safer and sanov policy in tho use of their machines the general public will sooner or later im pose restrictions upon automobiling that will be unpleasantly rigorous from the motor enthusiast's point of view. Worcester Post. There is no sense whatever in fight lng ngainst the automobile. It is o;i" of the accepted methods of travel, vid It has come to stay. What is needed Is not a crusade to iutlame the minds of the people, but a general and intel ligeut acceptance of the machine, coupled with a proper control exercised under the law.
