It was fully half aa hour before a beginning
was made to clear the wreckage, while the

UlShted. and by the fitful light from these the
'work was continued and the walls were shored
up with strong' beams.
< Many trees In the avenue were blown down
:by the force of the explosion, and the aspect of
'the house and grounds v.-<is one of desolation.

a small tree, and a bloody, dust covered hand

Inquiry at the Calmerer Hospital to-day j
showed that Premier Btolypln's daughter was i
■fill alive, but that her condition was critical, I
and It was feared that ranrrene would set in. j
She 1b under the care of the well known sur
geon, I>r. Pavloft*. The hospital doctors Intend- I
ed to amputate her legs, but Dr. Pavloff advised {
that the operation be postponed. M. Stolypin
has received telegrams of sympathy from the
grand dukes, grand duchesses. Count Wltte and
other prominent persons.
Mile. Btolypln is one of seven, daughters of the
Premier. The wounded boy Is his only son.
M. Btolypln moved last night to his house In
Morskaia street, which is almost next door to
the house where the assassins had their lodg
ings. The Premier has frequently visited the j
latter house, which Is the property of Princess I
Mestchereky and Is divided Into furnished rooms
of the hlehoft dan.
At the Hospital of Bt. Peter and St. Paul there
was a disgraceful soramble of thousands of
curiosity seekers around the mangled bodies of
twenty-six of the victims, which had lain ex
posed on the grots In the hospital yard the
whole of last night and to-day, and were still
there at 6 o'clock this evening. Women promi
nent In society fought and jostled street laborers

Though doeens of suspected revolutionists were
gathered in to-day In the capital, no Important
arrests have been announced. The police have
"baen unsuccessful in getting on the track of the
conspiracy, beyond establishing from the text
of the death sentence found on the body of one
«*f the dead assassins that the band belonged to
the Maxlmists, better known as the "flying
Croup" of the Social Revolutionists. This group
Is thus designated because it operates on an un
fixed base. It has bern responsible for most of
the recent assassinations, not having accepted
the dictum of the larger fighting organization
of the Social Revolutionists to discontinue ac
tivity during the session of parliament. Among
its members, who do not exceed a few hundred,
were Mile. Spiridonovo. who shot the chief of
the secret police, Luzhenoffsky. at Tamboff ; Mile.
Barbara Prlntz. who committed suicide after the
premature explosion of a bomb Intended for
Governor General Kaulbars; the slayer of Gen
eral Kozloft*. of the headquarters staff, who was
murdered In the park at Peterhof on July 14.
and Bclenzoff, the principal of the great Moscow
bank robbery. The group is financed largely
with the proceeds of the Credit Mutual Bank
robbery. A peculiarity of Its workings Is that
Its decrees are never executed by residents of
the same city in which the victim lives, but those
who carry them out are drafted from other lo

air.- According 1 to a report current, a meeting oC
the 'camarilla discussed the question to-night at
Feterhof and a majority wns in favor of such, a
f-teji. Grand Duko Nicholas Nlrholaluvltch. who
had Just returned from calling on Premier
Stolypin, was especially in favor of the plan.
It Is Bald that after the meeting Grand Duke
Nicholas. nnd other grand dukes /went to the
Emperor to demand his authorisation, btrt up to
the present moment this has not been received.
M, PoUanvoff, who was talking to M. Stolypin
at the time of the explosion, gives the following
account of the disaster:
After dismissing the matter of zemstvo finan
ces and Indulging In a little talk on the general
political condition in the province of Simbirsk
I had risen to depart The Minister was extend
ing his hand to me when the explosion occurred.
It seemed as if there were two or three shocks
in succession. I felt myself lifted in the air and
then hurled violently to the floor. I did not lose
consciousness. After a moment I regained my
feet and made my way out through a window
Into the garden, the doors of the study being
blocked by broken furniture. The Minister's first
words were, "Where is my family? What has
happened? I answered that it was a bomb
thrown from the garden. We then went to the
front of the house and as soon as possible I
hailed my coachman and departed. Of those in
the reception room antechamber all were kiilod
or wounded. I and my colleagues, who were
with M. Stolypin. alone escaped.
The death sentence had long hung over the head
of General Mln, owing to the disfavor Into which
he bad fallen because of harsh methods and cruel
ties. General (then Colouel) Mm commanded the
Beminovsky Regiment when the people were shot
down near the Technological Institute In St. Peters
burg on October 81, and It is said that he wanted
to eet the buildings of the Institute on fire and
burn the students inside. Mm was sent by the
Emperor to suppress the disorders at Saratoff after
the assassination of General Bakharoff In December
last and when the trouble at that place was quelled
ha was dispatched at the and of Deoember to Mos
cow to assist in putting down th« uprising there.
On April 34 a member of the Aehting organisation
of the revolutionists, Ilsguised as an officer, who
had called at MJn's resldsnee several times and re
quoßted to see him, excited the suspicion of the at
taeh«a of the household and was arrented. He was
a revolutionist «-"d was armed with a revolver and
a dfigger.
On July II last 5t was reported that some of the
soldiers of th« Seminovsky Guard Regiment, at
Krasnoy* Selo had served notice on General Mm
that they intended to kill him at the first oppor
tunity for forcing them to murder tholr fellow
citizens in the Moscow revolt and that Mln, in fear
of his life, had fled from th« camp.
Identity of Assassin at Home of M.
Stolypin — Detectives Killed.
London, Aug. 27.— Dispatches from St Peters
burg to the newspapers this morning supply
further details concerning the attempt on the
life of the Russian Premier. It is said that the
man who threw or dropped the bomb was named
Morosoff, and that he was a native of Ryazan
Province. Among the killed were nearly all the
agents of the secret police in the house, in
cluding four women detectives. Several persons
were warned beforehand that an attempt on the
life of the premier would be made. Mme. David
off, wife of the court chamberlain, who was
killed, says that her husband received a postcard
on Friday, saying: "Do not go where you Intend
going." Another official named Plsemsky re
ceived a similar warning. He feigned illness and
thus escaped.
Some of " the accounts suggest that the ex
plosion was premature, and that therefore the
escape of the premier was due to the fact that
the assassins were partly Intoxicated.
All the newspapers comment upon the ap
parent indifference of the Russian public to such
outrages, saying that this is either because their
frequency engenders callousness or because of
sympathy with the revolutionists.
When M. Stolypin was Governor of Saratoff
the superintendent of police there was being at
tacked by a mob for carrying out orders that
aroused their resentment. Stolypin, seeing what
was happening, rushed up between the superin
tendent and the angry crowd, exclaiming, "If
you want to kill the responsible official. It is I.
The superintendent is only doing his duty in
executing my orders. He had no choice but to
carry them out It was I alone who issued them,
and here I am." The crowd, surprised at Stoly
pln's courage, silently dispersed.
"The Daily Telegraph's" St Petersburg cor
respondent, commenting on the outrage, says:
No political reforms can heal the present moral
gangrene which is eating away the soul of the
nation. Political motives play hardh- any part
In the epidemic of loathsome crime. The ideas
of right and wrong are '/holly perverted.
Bestiali .y and humanity are now struggling for
the ujrper hand, and the chances are on the sido
of tie?»iality. If the Constitutional Democrats
were in power to-morrow the epidemic ol crime
would continue, for the struggle is not between
this party or that, but between resvldom arid
men of law and order.
Eight Persons Killed, Thirty-two
Wounded, at Yudooka.
Yudooka, Aug. 20. — After a meeting of work
men to-day, which was addressed by Michail
chenko, a member of the former parliament
shots were nred. This resulted in an encounter
between th« workmen and Cossapks and police,
the latter firing nine volleys, which killed eight
persons and wounded thirty-two.
Hamburg, Aug. 20.— A search of the room oc

No Cuh'ins Found Here Keenly to
Help Fight Insurgents.
There was no apparent enthusiasm among
looal Cubans yesterday over their government's
appeal for volunteers, and none could be found
who showed the least desire to help fight the
Insurgents. Sympathizers of the Insurgent
cause pointed out last night three instances that
Indicate, they beUeve. the seriousness of the up
rising and the precarious position of the Palma
government. Colonel Charles M. Agulrre. a vet
eran of the revolution In Cuba and one of the
most active of the local enemies of the govern
ment, said last night, when told of the proposed
amnesty decree:
That in Itself is an official admission that the
insurrection is stronger and more threatening
than the government has heretofore cared to
acknowledge. If it believed that there was any
possibility of crushing the movement by force
of arms, that decree would never be Issued. How
ever, I know the metal of the men In the field, for
I hare fought with them, and can safely say
that they can be neither reconciled to a cause
that they think unworthy, nor bulldozed Into lay-
Ing down their arms. This veiled threat will
avail the government nothing; it Is only an
acknowledgment of weakness. When the **ln
surrectos" g«t ready to avail themselves of the
government's magnanimity they will make It
known. But the time is not yet.
Two more things that prove that the revolu
tionary movement Is worthy of serious atten
tion are the Havana government's appeal for
volunteers, and the large shipment of arms,
ammunition and ordnance from this city yes
terday. Surely the government doesn't expect
to use up two million cartridges on "a handful
of dissatisfied politicians." I have news that
the movement is rapidly spreading to Santa
Clara and Santiago provinces, and that In sev
eral places prominent men. most of them recog
nised military leaders, have joined the rebellion.
Colonel Agulrre is a brother-in-law of Colonel
Orestes Perrara, a professor of law In the Ha
vana University, who, yesterday's dispatches
said. Is leading an insurgent force In Santa
Clara. Earlier news from Havana said that
Colonel Perrara had been arrested, charged with
complicity in a conspiracy against the govern
ment In collecting money and arms In New
York for the revolt. Colonel Ferrara had no
Information of the latest news of his brother
in-law's action.
Another Important desertion from the Moder
ate party of Cuba, which Is the one supporting
the government, it was announced yesterday,
was that of General Orenclo Nodarse, who is at
present staying in this city. General Nodarse,
who was one of the leaders of the Moderate
party, formerly occupied the office of Director
of Poats, which corresponds to our Postmaster
General. His break with the Palma adminis
tration came when the President arbitrarily. It
la charged, annulled the election of the Liberal
members of the Havana City Council and put
in their places members of his own party, the
Moderates. General Nodarse objected vigorously
against this action, but President Palma refused
to reconsider his step, whereupon General No
darse resigned and came here.
When seen yesterday the general said: "The
situation Is very grave."
Reports from the island say that his brother
Colonel Alberto Xodarse, a veteran of the revolu
tion and. like General Nodarse, a man of great
prestige, has Joined the Insurrection. Of this
report the general simply said: "I don't know
anything about it."
A reporter informed General Nodarse that the
Havana government was considering the is
suance of a decree of amnesty.
"It is a good Idea," he said, laughing, without
Indicating whether he meant the decree or the
Miguel Corona, member of the Cuban House
of Representatives and director of "El Cubano
Libre." a newspaper of Santiago, who is staying
In this city, ridiculed yesterday the story of the
existence in this city of a revolutionary Junta.
"Who constitutes this junta?" asked the Con
gressman. "A few enemies of the government
get together and, 10, we have a junta. But I
would like to know Its purpose. Certainly these
men have no money with which to do any work.
For that matter, the insurgents have no money,
either, and without It they can do nothing. It
is true they have some arms which they kept
from the last war, but they are not enough to
keep up a long fight."
Regarding the rumors of filibustering expe
ditions from Florida, Sefior Corona said:
I am sure there have been no expeditions. Not
that it is impossible to land one in Cuba; for
that is a very easy thing to do, but because there
is no money with which to fit out one.
A well-to-do Cuban merchant of this city said
The insurrection in Cuba Is a foolhardy under
taking, and cannot succeed, because nobody will
contribute any funds to It. My countrymen
don't seem to know when they are well off. We
Cubans in the United States gave all In our
power to the cause of independence, but we have
no funds for the present uprising.
These are busy days for the soldiers of fort
une, who perhaps could be more appropriately
dubbed soldiers of misfortune, for their experi
ences in fighting have almost Invariably reralte.l
disastrously for them. There are several of
them in this city always looking for a chance to
fight for anything or anybody. Just now they
have their eyes on Cuba.
One of these called yesterday at the cigar store
of F. E, Fonseca A Co.. at Columbus Circle, and
calling John Fonseca aside confided to him that
he was a fighter.
According to his story, he had been a captain
in the United States army and had served in
thn Philippines. His Spanish patois bore out
at toast the last part of his story. Mr. Fonseca
explained to him that the Insurgents were not
recruiting any men here, but referred him to
the Cuban consulate.
* I'll go there to-morrow." said the self-styled
former army officer: "I'd Just as lieve fight for
the government as for the rebels."

Tells Bronx Borough President He
Has Fight on Hands.
In his anxiety to hold the reins of the organisa
tion Charlie Murphy is said to be going to ex
tremes these days. It was learned yesterday that
he had had a long conference with Borough Presi
dent Haffen of The Bronx. He told Hatten some
one must be up and doing or he— Haffen— would be
enowed under in the 83d. 34th and 85th Assembly
districts. Up to a few days ago Murphy really be
lieved HafTen could carry The Bronx without a
struggle, but the ne«va ho has received dally of th*
widespread disaffection has caused him to change
his opinion. MoClellan appears to be maklr.g re
markable Inroads among Haffen's followers.
Tho independent candidates for leadership In the
three districts of The Bronx were greatly cb—
yesterday by reports from their agents. With Mc-
Clellan's namo as the battle cry they hay* won
hundreds of voters from Haffen's candidates, they
say. and the primaries will show It. The inde
pendent candidates united yesterday In declaring
that they were not opposed to the parent organi
zation, Tammany Hall. but to the man Murphy, and
all his clan.
In the 35th Assembly District, where Joseph I.
Berry la the independent candidate for leader, nu
merous clubs have sprung up in the last few weeks
and Indorsed Berry. A mass meeting was held in
Nolan's Hotel. Fordham, on Saturday night, at
which Haffen was roundly denounced.
A rousing meeting: was held on Saturday night
In Prlta's Hall, Camoron Place and Morris avenue.
Among the speakers were Joseph I. Berry, the can
didate: Joseph J. Martin. Samnel D. Davis and
Korpert Blank. Another was held at Schmidt's
Hall. Third and Bathgate avenues. Berry was the
speaker. He denied the right of Louts F. Haffen or
any other man to dictate to the people whom they
should vote for at a primary or any other election.
Louis F. Haffen, he insisted, was interfering: with
the greatest franchise any dtisen possessed— the
right to vote for whom he pleased— the place to
rebuke such insolence was at the polls.

feated In Westchester the Hearst people intend to
make a fight in the Democratic State Convention,
with the hope of having the nine delegates from
the county elected for Jerome thrown out. Th*
Hearst people base th* contest on th* charge that
due notice of the Assembly district conventions in
Mount Vernon. Mount Klsco and Peekskill. was not
given, but that ex-Mayor Walsh of Tonkers and ex.
Mayor Flake of Mount Vernon. who have been run
ning the Jerome campaign, posted the notices at the
last minute, so that they would reach delegates not
wanted at the conventions too late tor them to at
tend. It Is also alleged that these men called th*
three conventions on separate dates, so that they
could attend each of them In person and whip the
delegates into line.
The contest In Westchester. It Is said. Is in line
with a policy which the Hearst managers will fol
low all over the state where they hay* failed to
control the delegates. Contests will be started. It
is reported, and if the Hearst men are strong
enough to capture the temporary organisation of
the convention, they will name a oommKta* on
credentials which will proceed to throw out Jerome
delegates wherever they can find an excuse for
doing so.

Nebraska™. Vanguard of Welcom
ing Delegations, Roach City.
"Bryan's Nebraska Hem* Folks," the first to ar
rive bete of the state delegations which are to at*
tend the Bryan reception st Madison Square Gar*
den on Thursday, reached the Hotel Victoria last
nlgbt at 10:30 o'clock, nearly five hours late. They
had had their troubles before they saw the lights
of Broadway, and most of them sought their
couches as soon as they could be assigned to the
MSSM reserved for the delegation. Early to-day
mm "ill begin to wander through tbe> city, sewte*
broadcast the Bryan enthusiasm of th* Mr t Ne
braska Bind.
In the party were some 130 men and five women.
They left Omaha on Friday night In a special train
of six Pullman coaches. Heading the delegation
were Mayors Brown of Lincoln, Dolman of Omaha,
Hunker of West Point. Watsto of Humboldt. Qeer
ing of Plattsmouth. Uhlis of Holdrege, and Burke
of Frtend. J. W. Cutrlgbt. of Normal. 3fr. Bryan's
old secretary; H. S. Daniel, secretary of the State
Central Committee; Lisle I. Abbot, State's At*
torn'ey, and W. H. Green, of Crelghton. Demo
cratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor, were also
in the party.
A3 the delegation left the train at the Pennsyl
vania station in Jersey City, and agate as Its bnbv
bers lined up in the Victoria Hotel, where they
were greeted by President Hoge of the Commercial
Travellers' Anti-Trust League, and Harry W.
Walker, its secretary, superficial observers noted
some few points of interest. There was not a
whisk-r in the party and even mustaches were not
luxuriant. Sllmnees and length of body seemed to
be eminently proper, though Mayor Brown carries
considerable weight with dignity. Slouch bats, of
wide brim, preferably black, were to order, while
waistcoats , were at a huge discount. All wore
white badges with the "Home Folks" inscription,
and the Bryan doctrine wtU bs- spread eiroua*th»
hotel to-day on banners of the following devices:
••We have kept the faith."
••We believe in national honor.
"We knew they would come to Know tarn.
"What is home without a Bryan?"
"They called him the boy orator of the flag.
"And Wattereon came also."
"Who said 'Repudiator'?"
Considerable trouble waa experienced because no
baggageman was shipped on the special train, and
the trunks of many of the delegates had not
reached Jersey City. As soon as the train entered
the station several went hustling to the baggage
room to "nnd out about It." They didn't find much,
and expressed freely their opinions of the "cussed
corporations" which would sell a through ticket,
but wouldn't check the baggage with it
One of those who visited the baggage room saw a
group of the trunk smashers In repose. He sur
veyed them thoroughly, then expressed himself to
his fellows as follows: "Boys, I nover was prouder
of Nebraska. I looked 'era over good, and they
ain't much better nor much worse than we are."
The ferryboats and the river furnished much of
Interest to the visitors. One. pointing dramatical*
ly down the bay while crossing the river, exclaimed
loudly: "There's where he is. boys," end the rush
to gase In the direction designated nearly made the
ferryboat turn turtle.
Other ferryboats, brilliantly lighted, plying m
every direction, drew forth another comment. T'lt'sT 'It's
no wonder Rockefeller's rich; they all burn oil."
while one of the women declared earnestly: "All
these tugs belong to the corporations."
Every effort will be mad* by the various recep
tion committees to make the thousands of visitors
comfortable. The "Hospitality Committee." of
which Francis Burton Harrison Is chairman, will
hold a meeting this morning to appoint special
groups of "glad-hand men." mostly from tha South
and west," who will devote themselves to giving
the delegates "a good time." The state societies
here In New York also expect to entertain the
visitors from their home states. The Missouri So
ciety will bold a reception for Governor Folk, the
Maryland Society one for Governor Warfield. while
the North Carolina BorJety has scheduled another
for Governor Glenn, th.< two United States Sen
ators and the eight Congressmen who will be with
the North Carolina delegation.
On Wednesday night the Democrat! o Crab will
have a big reception for the visitors. Boc-Vlce-
Preaident Stevenson will be there. The Democratta
Club and the Manhattan Club win ««ep open house
from now on. for the delegates win arrive In gr-a
