Grand Duke Alexis is stayine at Hombnrg and probably will represent the Bussian emperor at a further royal conference, which, if necessary, will take place. RUSSIANS CHANGE FEONT. Constitutional Democrats Are Being Defeated in New Elections. St. Petersburg, Aug. 13.Constitu- tional democratic leaders as candidates for re-election are going down to de feat. M. Kakoshkene, next to M. Eo ditcheff the most brilliant constitution al demociatic orator in the-outlawed parliament, has been defeated by Count Sherenietieff, notorious reactionary, anil yesterday two constitutional democrats were defeated at Samara. While these results certainly indicate a reaction of sentiment against the advance in the program of constitutional democrats it should also be pointed out that the nobility and landed proprietors have the dominant influence in zemstvo elec tions, and the defeat of the constitu tional democrats probably represents more their hostility to the principle of the forced expropriation of land, to which the constitutional democrats are committed, than enmity toward the purely political part of their program. Nevertheless, the important landed interests, reactionary or liberal, are uniting and lining up in favor of the government's, as against the parlia ment 's radical agrarian program. There are strong reasons to believe that it is the intention of the Stolypin ministry, if things move normally, to support the candidates of the regenera tionists, who are expected to amal- fhe amate with the Octoberists, whether eo-operation of the right wing of the constitutional democrats is secured or not. A significant symptom of the radical change in the situation produced by the miseragle failure o the general strike is the fact that the majority of the social democratic leaders who, a fort night ago, were its most active pro moters, are now in favor of turning their attention to the coming elections, and have already begun to conyass the situation for their candidates. DUKE SOARED TRAITOR SHOT Nicholaievitch Won't Command Army Mutineers Executed. St. Petersburg, Aug. 13.Grand Duke Nicholas Nicholaievitch, the As sociated Press is informed by a mem ber of his entourage, has declined tov accept the post of commander-in-chief Of all tlie troops of the empire "nhere martial law exists," which was ten dered to him Aug. 4. Whether this was decided before or after the attempt on his life at Kras noye Selo, Aug. 10, is not known, but the ostensible reason is that Grand Duke Nicholas believes that such a post should not be given to a grand duke, but to a purely military man. He advocates the appointment of Gen eial Linevitch, formerly commander-in chief of the Manchurian army. Yesterday the second birtHilay of the C7areyitch was observed with the usual display of flags and illuminations, but there was no enthusiasm. The trial by courtmartial of the Svea borg mutineers, commenced Saturday at Helsingf ors and Lieutenants Kochan ovsky and Ernilianoff, aged espectively 0 and 21 years, and five soldiers, were at the first sitting found guilty and condemned to death and all weie shot and buried in a common grave without ceremony. Kochanovsky's father is a colonel of the guards at St. Peters burg. NEW PATENTS. Special to The Journal.

Journal Special Service. New York, Aug.. 13.In an attempt to make a world's record against which competitors in the international balloon races at Paris next month will have to struggle. Dr. Julian P. Thomas will take his balloon to Chicago and try for a flight to New York. Dr. Thomas will' inflate his balloon with hydrogen, giving it far greater lifting capacity, permitting him to car ry a companion aeronaut and an abun dance of ballast and provisions. Inflat ing of the great silk bulb will cost $840 and with other expenses will make the ascension one of the costliest ever made in this country. "It is my hope,'' said Dr. Thomas, "to see Americans outstrip the French and hold the world's records for suc cessful flights. I am having my own airship built, it has six or eight new devices which makes it different from others built so far and as any of these devices may develop into a man-killer, we first will operate the machine by means of electric wires from the earth.'' BROWNS VALLEY HAS ITS MYSTERY Foul Play, Suicide, Accident All Considered in Disappearance of W. H. Carter. Speoial to The Journal. Browns Valley, Minn., Aug. 13.W. H. Carter, an old and prominent resi dent of this place, has been missing from his boarding house since 11 0 'clock Saturday night, and it is feared he has thrown himself into the Little Minnesota river, which runs but a short distance away. His hat and cane were found on the river bank yester day morning. It is conjectured by some that he wandered too near the water and in the darkness tumbled in. Foul play is also suspected, but no arrests have been made. Detectives will be sent for and placed on the case at once. The river was dragged yesterday and sixteen charges of dynamite exploded, but the body was not recovered. Mr. Carter had been in poor health several years and at the time of his disappearance was barely able to walk alone. He was possessed of consider able property, and in his active life had. been a prominent worker in Ma sonic circles. He was an Englishman by birth and was about 65 years old. He had no relatives in this country. SUIGIDES TH INCREASE ST. LODIS HOLDS RECORD' Journal Special Service. New York, Aug. 13.Suicide is in creasing at an alarming rate in Greater New York, and from the beginning of the year the numbers of those who kill themselves will be much greater than in 1905. During the seven months iust ended in 1906 there have been in the greater city 433 suicidesan average of sixty two a month. If this average is main tained for the ensuing five months, the total number of suicides for the year 1906' -will be 743an increase of eighty three over the year 1905. The propor tion of men who commit suicide to women is three to one. For every one woman who kills herself there are three men who do so. Greater New York ranks fifth as a suicide city, being exceeded, in this di rection by St. Louis, Hoboken, Chica go and Oakland, Cal., the order named. After New York come Mil waukee, Cincinnati, Newark, Boston, Indianapolis and New Orleans. The city which has the fewest suicides in proportion to population is Fall River, Mass., where 2.7 per cent in 100,000 of population kill themselves. POLICE WITH PEOPLE IN TROLLEY RIOTS New York., Aug., 13.As a result of the disturbances amounting in some in stant almost to riots on Coney Island cars of the Brooklyn Rapid Transit company yesterday, when several thous and persons were eiected from cars when they refused to pg-^ ten cent fares. Acting Police Cfcaafc/Sssnoner Waldo today revoked permits granting the company power to employ sixty special policemen who assisted in put ting off passengers. These special policemen wore uni forms almost identical with those of regular policemen. They were stationed at points along the line where the sec ond fare was collected. Those who refused to pay and insisted upon con tinuing their journey were seized and forcibly ejected. Justice Gaynor of the supreme court ruled Saturday that the Brooklyn Rapid Transit had no right to demand double fare. Mr. Waldo said today that the five cents fare ruling will be enforced. "The police department," he said, "will arrest every employee or agent of the Brooklyn Rapid Transit company who assaults a citizen. trf* Have you see the Pillsbury "A" Mill? "North Coast Limited."

Cumberland, Mel., Aug, 13.Serious but, rational dealing with anarchism, which he asserts is a most vicious form of evil, was recommended yesterday by Secretary of the Navy Charles Bona parte in an address at the Allegheny Chautauqua. The proposition for a concert of the powers to stem the growth and activity of the interna tional outlaws was praised by Secreta ry Bonaparts as a proiect of vast im portance, but he urged that local ac tion was necessary, declaring it impos sible to accomplish the defeat of the reds without fixing local punishment for their lawlessness. Regarding puni lshment, he said: "On anarchists the death penalty should be unequivocally imposed by law and inflexibly executed whenever the prisoner has sought directly or in directly to take life for offenses of less gravity I advise a comparatively brief but very rigorous imprisonment, characterized by complete seclusion, deprivation of all comfort and denial of any form of distraction, and which could be, to my mind, advantageously supplemented by a severe but not pub lic whipping. The lash, of all punish ments, most clearly shows the culprit that he suffers for what his fellow citi zens hold odious and disgraceful and not merely for reasons of public policy.'' FIGHmfALDDEL AS GIRL LOOKS ON Wooer Slays His Sweetheart's Father in a Battle with Pistols. Greenville, S. C, Aug. IS.-Cowering in a corner of her bedroom, Miss Nan nie Drake last night saw her father, Thomas F. Drake, fight a pistol duel to the death with her sweetheart, Allen Emmerson. After the exchange of sev eral shots, Drake fell dead with a bul let thru his heart, almost at the feet of his daughter. Emmerson staggered out of the room suffering from a severe but not fatal wound. The girl was found in hysterics over the corpse of her father and crying that she was guilty of his death. Drake, who was a wealthy planter, heard a noise in his daughter's room. On entering he saw his daughter and Emmerson. Instantly he began shoot ing. Emmerson sprang away from the girl, secured his pistol, which was on a table, and returned the fire. The father fired four shots, but only one took effect, striking Emmerson in the thigh. After being wounded, Emmerson fired a shot that killed Drake. After Em merson killed Drake he left the house and went to Anderson, where he sur rendered. When the circumstances be came known, there was so much in dignation against Emmerson that he was brought here to prevent a possible lynching. Miss Drake has fled. BARELY MISS DEATH IN BLAZING AIRSHIP New York, Aug. 13.Caught high in a flaming balloon, Nelson Elmquist, a professional aeronaut, and his assistant, James Moss, had a narrow escape from death yesterday. The two men had been giving exhi bitions at Bergen Beach, and it was determined to give the crowd an extra "thriller." They were to go inland, then sail over Bergen Beach, and when about half a mile out, Elmquist was to make a drop in a parachute into the waters of Gravesend bay. Shortlv af ter the balloon sose the aeronauts saw that the crowd was greatly excited over something. Elmquist began looking about and saw that the silk bag of his balloon was on fire. He shouted to Moss to open the valve and let out the gas. Moss tried this, but before the balloon reached the ground he .iumped out, a distance of about fifty feet. The rapid escape of the gas thru the valve and from the holes put in it by Elmquist caused the balloon to settle. It fell directlv on top of Moss, who lay stunned. The spectators pounced upon the flaming airship and soon extin guished the flames. Both aeronauts were badly burned.

President of Wrecked Bank a Suicide, His Son Thinks. Believes Skilful Forger Hired by the Looters. Chicago, Aug. 13.Theodore Was vStens land, son of the fugitive Milwaukee Avenue bank wrecker, has made a full statement of his knowledge of the cir cumstances surrounding the flight of his father and touching the colossal for gery fraud in the bank. In a frank narration of the manner in which the great scandal was made known to him, young Stensland not only flatly denies that he ever had knowledge of the plot before Aug. 3 last, but submitted various proofs with which he expects to substantiate his story. He declares absolutely that he was not only ignorant of the steals per petrated, but that he never profited in any way from them. The young man advanced the belief that his father has not fled the coun try, but has committed suicide. He also advanced the theory that his father could not himself have committed the forgeries of notes because of an im pemment- in his control of the pen in recent years. Had Export tforgert He thinks also that Cashier Henry W. Hering could not have sufficiently disguised his chirography to perform the imitations, and that, therefore, an outside 'expert was employed for the purpose of copying signatures on blank checks. It became known in the evening that young Stensland late on Saturday had fhe iven to Receiver John C. Fetzer, for benefit of the bauk depositors, deed to all the Cook county real estate held by his father, who had given him power of attorney. The fugitive banker's son was found at a downtown hotel, where he is stay ing preparatory to surrendering him self today to the sheriff on the bench warrant for conspiracy, in which he was included with Paul O. Stensland and Cashier Hering. He had not sur rendered at a late hour this afternoon, however. Sleuth Seeks Woman. Assistant State's Attorney Olsen stated today that he had received in formation concerning a woman (whosa identity he refused to reveal) who, he said, would impart information re Warding Cashier Hering and President tensland. A detective was sent for the woman and, it was expected, she would be questioned later in the day. Madison,Wis., Aug. 13.Police went today to Westport, seven miles from here, to interview David Lease, a farmer, who is reported to have seen Paul 0. Stensland, the missing presi-" cfent of the Milwaukee Avenue State bank of Chicago, out driving last Fri day. Lease was once in the commission business in Chicago near Stensland's bank and claims to know Stensland. Fugitive Seen in Chicago. According to the Chicago Chronicle, Stensland has been seen cnicago twice within a week. Two witnesses, one of whom, William Jennings, was for nine years a porteruin the. bank, told of having met the banker on the street and exchanged salutes with him. Each time, it is*as&ei?ted, he waSaccompanied by James Erickson, a nephew. State Bank Examiner C. C. Jones, who has completed his inspection of the defunct bank was reticent concerning the exact results of his investigations, t\vf intimated that the total shortage discovered is between $800,000 and $1,000,000. Thinks Son Guilty. The local police and the state's at torney's office continued their inquisi tions. Inspector Shippey questioned more than a dozen of the institution's employees, seeking information from watchmen, bookkeepers, assistant tell ers and other minor officials. One bookkeeper was positive that President Stensland's son was cogniz ant of the shaky condition of the bank previous to Aug. 3, the date on which young Stensland claims he first sus pected irregularities on the part of his father. Othr employees told the inspector of midnight trips to the bank by President Stensland and Cashier Hering. The in formation is regarded as important by the police. REFUSES TO EXPLAIN ABSENCE OF 31 YEARS! Chicago, Aug., IS.After an unex- ?lained absence of thirty-one years 'rofessor Charles H. Frye, former su perintendent of the Chicago Normal school of this city, has returned home as if from the dead. One of his first acts upon arrival at his home was to hand a roll or crisp $100 bills, totaling $5,000 over to his wife with the remark, "ask me no questions.'' Frye was 31 years of age when he disappeared. Since that day no word has been received from by his wife. He has settled down at home as though nothing had happened. SLASHED ON A CAR BY MAN WITH RAZOR New York, Aug. 13.While a pas senger on a trolley car that was pro ceeding along the Bowery earlv to-day, Preston Machtey, 41 veare old, was cut and badly wounded by a rasor in the hand of a man who made his es cape. Machtey was accompanied by a woman who gave her name as Mary Cook. Sne fainted. Both the man and the woman were taken to a hospital in an unconscious condition. As Machtey and the woman were' boarding the car at Bivington street a man struck Machtey with a stick and knocked him down." Machtey picked himself up and was assisted aboard a car. Soon after Machtey, a Pittsburg man, took his seat another man jumped aboard the car and rushed at Machtey with a razor. Before anyone could in terfere the assailant slashed Machtey twice with the weapon, almost severing the jugular vein. After being revived Machtey told the police he did not know the name of either of his assail ants.

How Good Food may Turn to Poison. ^ff^^ ECAYisnot digestion, you know, even when it takes place in the stomach.

The Instestines are also lined with millions of little suction pumps, that draw the Nutri ment from Food, as it passes them in going through. ?^~J m~ But, when the Bowel-Musoles are weak, the Food moves too slowly to stimulate the little Gastric Mouths and there la no flow or too little flow of Digestive Juice, to change the food into nourishment.
