[FBOM THE nißCn BrREAU.J Wsi*' 1 "!*** 1 . Feb. 17.— The Dominican treaty wiil be taken u;> by the Committee on Foreign Rdatiaas ■* special meeting called for to morrow irjorru. 1 i- r . and all proper meaxis will be used to expedite its consideration. As was the caee with the Panama, treaty, there will not be a party division on the protocol when it is con sidered in the Sonata. Southern Democrats ap preciate the force of the President's assertion that the welfare and prosperity of the Domini can Rflpufrtiff "are intimately asociated with the South A'.'sntic and Gulf States, the normal ex psjisi^u of whose commerce lies in that direc tion." Borne Democratic Senators believe that as the advantages ■which must accrue to the South ern Sates from peace and prosperity in Santo PSBBtagO come to be appreciated by their con stituents, there will be a general demand for its ratification, precisely as the advantages to be derived from the Panama Canal led to a demand - ratification of the Panama treaty. Such conditions as have for some years existed in t!.* Dominican Republic are admittedly a men ace to the Southern States, uhereaa the exist ence of a stable and prosperous republic, similar to Cuba, in that quarter must contribute to the comercial and political welfare of all the States bordering on the Gulf. ASSERTION OF MONROE DOCTRINE. Senators are already feeling the pressure in the closing days of Congress, made doubly se vere by the necessity of spending upward of five hours each day in the Swayne impeach ment trial and such consideration as has been given to the pending protocol has been purely tentaCve; but the importance of the convention U not underestimated, and several of its most saJier.l f- atures are being discussed. For in etance, It 1b remarked that the preamble of the protocol contains a declaration of the Monroe Doctrine which it is now proposed, for the first time in the hietory of this country, to make "the HUmwiwl law of the land," under Article 6 of the Constitution, by its inclusion in a rati fied treaty. The declaration Is as follows: Whereas, The government of the United States of America, viewing any attempt on the part of the governments outside of this hemisphere to Of. press or octroi the destiny of the Do minican Republic as a manifestation of an un f disposition toward the United States, ttc. Tbos* opposed to the Monroe Doctrine and its Inevitable corollaries may object to this declara ti'n and may seek to strike it out, but those who regard that doctrine as essential to the welfare of the United States see- no objection to bo clear a declaration of the principle, and bsttawg it is time that, by its incorporation in a to be ratified by the Senate, it shall be come an integral j?art of the supreme national law. MAY ADD A "PLATT AMENDMENT." The belief is also expressed In some quarters that the protocol should contain a "Platt amend ment" which shall forestall future "frenzied finance" on the part of Santo Domingo, and in- Fure to the republic a continuance of that stabil ity and prosperity enjoyed by Cuba, which it is the intent of the United States to confer on it by the temporary direction of Its fiscal affairs. It is declared by those who hold this view that comparatively little will have been accomplished if panto Domingo, after its financial affairs have b«*n put in order by the United States, shall be left free to incur unreasonable indebtedness and to become the prey of financial promoters, who *ffl not hesitate even to promote revolutions in crdrr that th*y may profit by the improvidence of those who may from time to time control the administration of the republics finances. Those «"ho entertain this view suggest that it may prove advisable to incorporate in the protocol a reproduction of the Platt amendment, which has already exerted ao benign an Influence on the dfft!ni*-s of Cuba, and such a suggestion will, in all probability, be made at the meetings of the Conirrsht'-e on Foreign Relations. "While- n is hoped to effect the ratification of the protocol at the earliest practicable moment, Fuch a course being manifestly for the best In terests of Santo Domingo, an well as of the care fully thought out plan of the administration, it is appreciated that at this stage of a short ses sion of Congress a few Democrats might ef fectually block ratification until after March 4; but jt is further remarked that such a course Would accomplish nothing, as the Senate could easfly tak* 1 up the treaty Immediately after March 4. with ho limitation on the time to be <Jf-votr-d to its consideration, and under such Circumstances no amount of Democratic filibus tering v.ould s^rvp to defeat the will of two thlrdi of the Senate. :du class to withdraw. thirty at Massachusetts Agricultural Col lege it'sent Suspensions.

[BY TELEGRAPH TO THE TRIBUNE.] St. John's, N. F.. Feb. 17. — Premier Bond be fore the general election last fall pledged him self, if re-elected, to adopt an aggressive pol icy against the United States if the Bond-Hay treaty was not ratified at the present session of Congress, He contends that, on the plea" that they were willing to support .reciprocity, Americans have been enjoying: for the last sixteen years for a merely nominal license fee, baiting, outfitting and transshipping privileges Immensely important to them, the colony acting in good faith toward them during that period. The Senate's present rejection of the treaty evidences bad faith on their part, he said, and there was no longer any reason why the colony should sacrifice its own position by continuing these privileges. The Colonial Cabinet is now considering what policy to adopt when the legislature assembles in the middle of March. The exclusion of Ameri can fishermen from bait privileges would be the first step. A combination with Canada to secure like action on her part would probably be the second. Denial to Americans of the right to purchase winter herring cargoes from the colo ny, or levying an export duty thereon equal to the American import duty on herring in foreign bottoms, such export duty being provided as a bounty to enable Newfoundland fisher folk to engage in thiß industry on as equality with Americans, is likely to be the third step. The f'.vrth would be a discriminating duty asninft American imports which are now $3,000,000 an nually. Canada and Great Britnir. each contribu ting about the same, the result of the duty bein? to divert most of the American trade to rivals. Canada is understood to be ready to follow Newfoundland's lead, being satisfied of the hope lessness of reciprocity and des'ous of reverting to the conditions existing prior to 1888. when the T'nited States paid $S,OOo,<YX> for twelve years' inshore fishing privileges. ARREST EX-INSTRUCTORS. Say Former Villanova Faculty Men Wrote Annoying Letters. Milton Roach, of No. 214 West 14th-st., and Anthony Beauvolr, of No. 59 West 17th-st., were arraigned before Magistrate Flammer in the Jefferson Market police court yesterday on a charge of disorderly conduct in writing annoy ing letters. They were held in $riOO bail. The complainants were President Delurey and Dr. John Reiner, of St. Thomas of Villanova College, at Villanova. Perm. Roach and Beau voir were instructors at the college, and about the first of the year they were dismissed, the complainants say. Roach taught English and the Frenchman taught Greek and Latin. Fol lowing the dismissals, the furniture in a num ber of the rooms in the college building were found demolished. Then letters began to pour In upon the professors. Villa nova, Perm., Feb. 17 (Special).— President Delurey and Dr. Reiner returned here to-night. They strongly suspect that the prisoners were part authors of the recent vandalism at the college. Dr. Delur* y said, however, that the men made no confession. Both prisoners are *<aid to have been jealous of Dr. Reiner. It was in Dr. Reiner's study the furniture was smashed.

Governor, Odell and Other Leaders Decide on Immediate Measure. The Republican leaders, at a conference last night at the Fifth Avenue Hotel, decided to pass a law fixing the price of gas in the city of New-York at SO cents a thousand feet. The reduced rate will become operative, it is under stood, as soon as the law is pass»l. The conference, which took plac« in Ftute Chairman Odell's mom in the Fifth Avenue Ho tel, was attended by Governor Higgins, Mr. Odell, Senators Malby and Elsberg. Speaker Nixon and William Halpin. president of the County Committee. Senator Raines and lieu tenant Governor Bruce called on Mr. Odell ear lier in the day. Another thing decided on was that the Raines law is to stand as it is. with the exception of the amendments favored by Senator Raines. These amendments provide that before the li cense is issued the applicant must obtain cer tificates from the Fire, Health and Buildings departments. Th ■ desirability of a legislative inquiry into Commissioner Oakley's lighting contracts and a State Water Commission bill were discussed at length. Governor Higgins reached town with Mr. Per ley, his secretary, at about ft o'clock, going to the Albemarle, as usual. When seen there by a Tribune reporter, he paid: I got -in early start for the amen corner din ner to-morrow night. I came In time to wish Chairman Odell a safe Journey and a pleasant vacation, and talk over legislation matters with him and others. Notihng of overshadowing im portance is under discussion. I expect to return to Albany on Sundaj When asked about the prospect of a State Water Commission bill, the Governor said. As I have said many times, I think we will have to come to that. I think it will be well to appoint a State commission, with power to In dicate the watersheds to which the cities may go for future supplies. If Mayor McClellan is right In his contention that the city may go ahead now and extend its water system, there is no objection so long as the city is not blocked, but when It is blocked, us it is likely to be sooner or latrr, the best way out of the difficulty will be for a State commission to have power to say to which watersheds the various cities shall re sort. It was learned that the leaders decided that It would be wise to put through the gas legisla tion already referred to. It Is said that the new law will not operate in all the boroughs alike, but that the Ni cent rate will apply to Man hattan and Brooklyn. A larger price may he charged in Queens.

The special committee of directors of the New- York, New-Haven and Hartford appointed to cor.elder the demand of the locomotive firemen employed by the road met here yesterday and decided to reject that demand. The refusal was conveyed to Timothy Shea, second vice-grand master of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Fire men, at New-Haven last night, and it now re maftm to be seen" whether or not the firemen will carry into effect the threat attributed to them in case of a refusal, a strike. They hay» already had a secret ballot and voted what action to take should they be confronted by the situation they now face, but the natu/a of thi* vote has not been revealei. The firemen took no action on the statement from the committee at New-Haver, last night. but Mi. Shea's words indicated that there was little probability of an immediate strike, if any. The refusal was contained In the following state-men: to Mr Shea: The New-York. New-Haven and Hartford Rail road Company— President's Office, at New- York, February IT. 19Or>. Mr. Timothy Phea.

Dear Sir: Agreeable to promise made by the special committee, board of directors, at the hearing with the committee of adjustment of locomotive firemen, held at Grand Central Sta tion. New-York, on Tuesday. February 14. 1905, the committee advises you of its conclusion, as follows; The question at issue is the following: That in the case of engineers who have been disci plined and are members of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen, upon taking an appeal from the decision of the officers applying the discipline to a higher officer, that a committee of engineers, members of the Brotherhood of locomotive Firemen, should take up his case with t»he management. Instead of the engineers' adjustment committee. , The committee having carefully considered the statements made at the hearing, having exam ined the records of the company in regard to the questions at issue, and having consulted with the officers of the company concerning the satve, has reached the following ,-onclusions, namely: That any aggrieved engineer is guaranteed an opportunity to be represented by an advocate before the officers of the company by the pro vlalon contained in Article. 1 of the schedule made with the locomotive engineers in our em ploy, in effect January 1, lftfH. In which article it is provided that "all engineers will be given a fair chance to defend thf-mselves against chnrgos in holding investigations. . . . All en. gineers who ;ire interested will be allowed to choose a disinterested engineer to represent or accompany them on boards of investigation, if they bo desire, when an appeal is made after the l'.rVr investigation." The committee is in entire accord with tha position taken and decision rendered in this mat ter by the president and executive officials charged with the operation and management of the company/s railroad, namely, that the claim of your committee ennnot be conceded, and be lirve that this decision Is for the best Interests of the company. The decision of the president and executive officers as already communicated to \ou by them, is therefore sustained. Yours truly, CHARLES F. BOOKER. Chairman. JOHN G. PARKKR, Secretary.

CZAR'S UNCLE, LEADER OF THE RUSSIAN 'AUTOCRACY ASSASSINATED AT MOSCOW. Grand Duke and His Carriage Blotcn to Pieces — The Assassin Capt ured — Consternation at Court. The assassination of Grand Ehike Sergius, whom the Russian pcopla considered the source of many of their misfortunes, caused consternation at Tsarskoe-Selo and gave impetus to the movement to force the Emperor tm institute reforms. The strike spread among the factories of St. Peters burg and Lodz, and the situation in these cities is considered critical. After the conference of the Emperor and his ministers credence was given to reports that steps had been taken toward peace in the Far East. There are rumors that the council discussed Japan's terms. Sharp skirmishes continue along the front. This morning's dispatches from St. Petersburg say that a land parliament is now assured, and that a committee has been appointed to ar-* range the method of its selection. NEW IMPULSE GIVEN TO THE POPULAR AGITATI'W. Moscow, Feb. 18.— Within the w^lls of the far famed Kremlin, ard almost underneath the historical tower from which Ivan the Terrible watched the heads of his ?n*n»ies fallnig be neath the axe on the famous Red Square, and within a stone's throw of the great bell of Mos cow. Grand Duke Sergius. uncle and brother-m law of Emperor Nicholas, and the chief of the reactionaries me: a terrible death shortly be fore 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The dcci was committed by a single Terrorist, who threw Vcreath the carriage of the grand duke a bomb charged with the same high-power explosive which wrought Minister Plehve's death. The missile was packed with nftils and frag ments of Iron, and its explosion tore the imperiil victim's body to ghastly fragments, which strewed the snow for yards around. Every v lndow in the srreat, lofty facade of the Palace of Justice vas shattered, and bits of iron wen imbedded deeply in the walls of the arsenal, a hundred yards away. The assassin belongs to the noted "fighting group" of the Socialist Revolutionary party, which has removed other prominent officials, and long ago passed sentence of death upon Grand Duk^ Sergius. The grand duke knew that he stood in the shadow of death. He was the recipient of repeated warnings, and elabo rate precautions were taken to insure his safety, but all the resources of the gendarmerie, secret police and soldiers proved unavailing against an attempt almost duplicating the procedure that caused the death of M. Plehve in July of last year. It was the irony of fate that Sergius. after taking refuge in his country villa during th>? strike troubles a 'month ago and later seeking even more secure shelter in the palace within the Kremlin's walls, should be killed while' go ing to the Governor General' 9 palace, beyond the walls, and which he had abandoned to enable the police better to protrot him. Grand Duchess Elizabeth, who has been en gaged dally in the task of preparing comforts for the sick and wounded Russian soldiers in Manchuria, was about to drive to the palace to Join her husband. When she heard of what had befallen the grand duke she was driven in haste to the scene of the tragedy, and knelt, hatless and coatlese. on the bloodstained snow, and murmured prayers for the welfare of the soui of her slain consort. The scene of the crime was the sreat open tri angle within the Kremlin, bounded by the ar senal, treasury and courts of Justice, in one nnsle of which is the Nicholas, or Little Palace, where the grand duke dwelt. At the opposite corner is the Nikoisky Gate, the exit to the town be yond the ramparts. A few minutes before the bell of the gate sounded the hour of 3 o'clock, the equipage of the grand duke emerged from the gate* of the palace and proceeded, followed by sleighs con taining secret police. It swept at ■ smart pneo toward the gate, parsing the Choudeff Cloister. Ivan's Tower, the great Czar Bell and long rows of cannon captured from Napoleon In the win ter retreat of 1812.

A thick cloud of smoke and, snow arose. - When it h;«<2 cleared a ghastly sight was pre sented. On the snow lay fragments of the body of Grand Duke Sergius. mingled with the wreck of the carriage. Th- Grand Duk»'s head had been torn from his body and reduced to ■ pulp, and the trunk and limbs were frightfully man gled. A finger, hearing a rich seal ring, •. 13 found lying several yards away. The crimson, tint and a sickening smell of blood were every where. Only a few frngmor.tr of eTorh Indicated that the body had once been ciothed. Th» coachman lay moaclcs with pain beside a deep hole in. the pavement. Th« horses, drains the front wheels of the carriage, had dashed ■>•?. maddened with pain, to sink dying before th*jr reached the gate. The so_:nd of the terrific explosion as heard throughout the city and even I ■ mid th? river. Instantly a crowd be^an to assemble, and even to handle grim evidences of the tragedy while tt discussed the affair In awe-struck voices. Police officials rapidly gathered, but before anything could be done toward collecting the scattered fragments of the body Qnuid Duchess Elizabeth drove up In an open carriage. Sha had dropped her work at the headquarters ot the Red Cross and sped to the s^cne of tha crime without waiting to don her outer wraps. She broke down entirely at the sight and dropped to her knees, sobbing bitterly. After a few minutes she was led away. Then a stretcher was brought, and. covered with a p!a!rx soldier's cloak, the body of Beigl was berne to the Choudoff Cloister, where officials ,ir. i mem bers of the grand duke's suits had assembled. The assassin was thrown to th? ground and stunned by the force of the explosion, but ha quickly arose and ran toward the gat;s, attempt ing to escape. His haste and the blorxl streaming from his face where he had been wounded by fragments of the bomb attracted the attention of a sergeant of police, who seized him beforo he could draw his revolver. The man di:l not deny his crime, but. on the contrcry. gloried In Its success. "I don't care." he said. "I hive done my Job." He expressed his satisfaction that he had been able to kill the graru* duKe without involving his Innocent wife. He avo % vM his membership In the social revolutionary or ganization, but refused to give his name, and at the jail his papers were found to be forged. The revolver with which th arsas^in was a rme i was an automatic magazine pistol of the same type as the weapon employed by Hwhawr thal. the assassin of Solsa'.on SobUsen, the Pro curator General of Finland, at Kelsingfors. on February G. His Injuries are not serious. The Grand Duke's coachman, who was badly injured, was removed to a bjaapitaL Lite last night he was still living. The news of the tragedy spread rapidly to every quarter of the city, aided by extra edi tions of all th • newspapers, which appeared with deep black borders.
