St. Petersburg, Aug. 26. Saturday's unsuccessful attempt on the life of Premier Stolypln with Its sickening, useless slaughter of thirty-two per sons, was foll'owed to-night by another revolutionary outrage in which Gen eral Min, commander of the Semlnov sky Guard regiment and who, since his promotion to be a general, has been at tached as a personal adjutant to the suite of the emperor, was killed on the station platform at Peterhof by a young woman, who fired five shots Into his body from an automatic revolver and then, without resistance, submitted to arrest. ' The capture of the girl was affected by General Mln's wife, who held her until the arrival of an lofficer. This was the third successive attempt on the life of Gen. Min, who was con demned to death by the terrorists im mediately after the Moscow revolt last IDecember on account of the stern re pressions practiced by a battalion un der his command and especially for the wholesale execution of persons' con demned by drumhead court martial for being caught with arms In their hands.

To the police the girl acknowledged that she had done the deed, saying she had executed the sentence of the fight ing organization iof the social revolu tionists but she refused to give her name. By a remarkable mischance Gen. Min only last week after the conclusion of the maneuvres at Krannoye-'Selo ris inlssed the body guard which had ac companied him since the first attempt was made ion his life, saying that the ordinary police, of Peterhof would be sufficient to guard him and his villa at Peterhof.

The second battalion of the guard, under command of Colonel Ri nnan, conducted repressions along the railroad to Kazan, for which acts Rl inan also was condemned to death. .Undeterred by several attempts to execute this sentence Riman accept ed an appointment on the staff of Gen eral Sakkon, governor-general of War saw, after the bom'b outrages at War paw, and left two days ago to assist in the suppression of anarchy in Pol and.

Situation So Increasingly Serious That it is Tacitly Admitted in All Govern ment Circles That Enlargement of Army Will Not Stop at Any Given Number Grave Differences Between President Palma und Vice President Capote Question Whether Former Should Retire for the Sake of Peace. Havana, Aug. 26. The deep anxiety of President Palma to extend every possible opportunity for peace with'out bloodshed, and his desire to permit those who Joined the insurrection un der misguidance to repent and return to their Wnmes unmolested combined with the general wish to end a situa tion fraught with so much loss and suffering, has led to consideration by the president and his cabinet of a project decreeing a thirtyday amnesty period, during which the Insurrection ists are invited to lay dbwn their arms and return to their peaceful pursuits. It was proposed to Issue the decree to morrow but persons close to the presi dent strongly opposed the measure and the matter was deferred and may be relinquished. General Montalvo, who Is acting see ing secretary of the Interior, on leav ing the president to-night said that at present there was no intention to issue an amnesty. Font Sterling, secretary tf the treasury, said the matter was not being seriously , considered and other friends of President Palma de clared It would' be an unwise move. Sunday proved to be a day of inac tivity, but preparations proceeded without abatement. IA fund of $2,000, 000 has been set aside by the treasury for defence and drafts on it are heavy and constant. ' The situation is so Increasingly ser ious that it Is tacitly admitted in all government circles that the enlarge ment of the army will not stop at any given number, but will continue Indefi nitely. The growth of the Insurrection cer tainly seems to keep pace with the preparations for suffocating it. Next to the progress wf the combatants, the most interesting question to-day seems to be how to end the war without flghtfng, Around the discussion of this question centers a deal mf crimination and recriminations from both liberals and moderates, each side brlnjtfng ac cusations against the other, as to the responsibility for precipitating the re Ibeiilon. . . GRAVE DIFFERENCES- President Palma nnd Vice President Ca pote Not in Agreement. Havana, . Aug. 26. The Associated Prosa learns that there are grave dif ferences between President Palma and Vice President Mendez Capote. The latter Is suspected of having considered with Senator Alfredo Zayas, president of the liberal party, the question whether peace could not be restored by Palma'a withdrawal from the presi dency, by permitting Mendez Capote to succeed him, and toy glvipk .certain posts to the liberals. None of the par ties concerned were willing to discuss this matter to-night, but the source of the correspondent's Information Is en tirely reliable. Major Gomez, of tho government, re ports another engagement with insur gents near Cascabnl to-day, In which several men were killed or wounded. Details of this affair have not yet been received here. . " ' Acting Secretary of tho Interior Montalvo has recommended the estab lishment Of a. censorship, and It Is fear ed such a restriction shortly will be im posed. A train from Havana bearing 150 re cruits and forty rural guards reached Pinar del Rio to-day, and reinforced the government troops already there. The presence of small parties of in surrectionists are reported daily In the four western provinces, principally in Havana and Santa Clara. A band of 1O0 Insurgents entered Las Lnjas, Santa Clara province, . to-dny and got away with the contents of the local treasury, $8,000. A special edition of the Official Ga zette, issued to-night, authorizes the soizure of all horses needed by the gov ernment forces. Proper payment will be made for ail animals thus token. The shortage of horses is at present one of the worst drawbacks with which the government has to contend. The government has discovered that the movements of Pino Guerro and oth er important revolutionary commanders are directed by a committee of revo lutionary veterans in Havana. This practice will be broken up, and several arrests are expected. The government announced this even ing the capture of ex-Congsman Carlos Mendieta, the leader of the In surgents in Santa Clara Province. He had $8,000 on his person when caught. This capture has been authenticated from other sources. It occurred in the city of Santa Clara. Colonel Aranda, wlio was with Mendieta, also was tak en prisoner. The capture of Mendieta is of great importance. Explosives Found in Student's Room. Hamburg, Aug. 26.

Among the numer ous opinions canvassed by the newspa pers with regard to President'. Roose velt's order with regard to a reform in spelling is one by George Bernard Shaw, who says: "There has been nothing like It since Mahommet reformed the calendar by making the year consist of twelve lunar months. It serves us right. The thing had to be taken in hand somehow, and If we refused to attend to our own ex perts we must make the best of the two energetic amateurs who have forced our hands." ARGUES WITH SOCIALIST. DEBATE INSTEAD OF ADDRESS ON GREEN. Alexander Rosen, New York Socialist, ' Gives Platform to Unknown Opponent of Party Principles Unknown Speaks of Socialism as "All Embracing Trust" Would be Worse Than Pres ent Regime. , . . Those wha clustered around the little table on the green last night from which, Alex Rosen, the New York socialist, spoke were treated to a debate Instead of a speech. Mr. Rosen's opponent was one of the crowd of listeners who, when opportunity was given tt ask questions, called Mr. Rosen to task for some of his statements, and later on at Rosen's invitation took the stand In opposition to socialism. . This unknown debater referred to so cialism as an "all embracing trust, which, w-hen once in power, would give us no better satisfaction than the pres ent regime." Then he said we should be dependent on the state of which each would form an insignificant cipher for everything that we eat mr wear. (At first he was biased by the crowd !but as he Continued speaking he gained some favor and applause. The unknown was interviewed by a Journal and Courier reporter when he had finished speaking but refused to divulge his name, saying that he was not in It for notoriety. He was1 a mid dle aged man, and evidently an Eng lish Jew, and seemed very conversant with the history ofl the, United States and Europe. Ho said that tills was the only country in which a man could en joy religious toleration. He cited his own case as an example He had been a resident of England where there Is a state church. He had tried to em brace the Jewish religion Ibut the laws of the land prevented. A Jew could become a Church of England man, but tho system did not work vice versa. He had therefore come to America. In reply Rbsen distinguished between political and industrial freedom, saying that he had plenty of the former but 'insufficient of the latter. We could oust our president and , oup mayors, but we could not rid' ourselves of the trust presidents under the present sys tetm. In his topening speech Rosen was listened to !by a quiet and attractive group of about 150 men and women. His subject was "Socialism 'and Why It Must Succeed." There was little of the small boy rowdyism which is often displayed at green addresses. Mr. Rosen Is a small, dark-haired man young, wearing a la Jack Lonon a soft rolling collar shirt and a dark ready made suit. He made a number of attacks on such corporations are the Brooklyn Rapid Transit company, and the beef trust, declaring that the rem edy for all abuses was for the people to take charge iof these His irony regarding the capitalistic class was telling, but he was slightly inaccurate In his accounts.
