The Arrest of the Assassin Possible Effect of the
Tragedy Upon the Far Eastern War.
Pt. Petersburg. July 2S. Viatsheshf
Oonstantinovltch de Tlehve, minister oC
the interior, was assassinated at 9:50
o'clock this morning with a bomb that
was thrown at his carriage while he
was driving to the Baltic station to
take the train for the palace at Pet
i i lnr. where he was to make his week
ly report to the czar.
The assassination is believed to be
the outcome of a widespread plot, the
existence of which has been suspected
for several days. Numerous arrests
have already been made, including that
of the assassin, a young man who I
believed to be a Finn of the name of
Leglo, and who Is now In the hospital
pei haps fatally injured by the explo
sion of his own bomb. An accomplce
of I.cglo, also apparently a Finn, but
whose name is unknown has been urn-sued.
He had in his possession a
bomb which he tried to threw, but ha
wa.i overpowered by the police Jus-t In
time to prevent great loss of life.

Minister de Plehve and his coachman-
were killed outright and an officer of
tiie guard was fatally wounded.
One of the detectives captured the
assassin as he attempted to escape,
though wounded by splinters in th,5
face, arm and abdomen. Ho made n
attempt at resistance, however, when
seized by the detective and confesB.nl
his crime, but refused to give
name. The police immediately after
the explosion arrested a suspicious in
dividual who took refuge in a hot;l
near the scene of the tragedy. He car
ried a bomb similar to that thrown by
Leglo. As soon as the police saw tha
bomb they scattered, but an employe
of the hctel fan up behind the accom
plice and pinned his arms.
The expioslves-"are believed to have
been composed of pj-roxlin, as It gave

Priests and people, with characteristic

was filled with a reverent crowd ot

No less impressuve was the service

The Murderd Minister One of Its
Paris, July 2S. Tiie news of the a.
nnsslnntlon on Plehve has caused groat
regret by official as It Is regarded ua
a severe blow -to Russia and art event
of considerable international Import
ance. The Impression prevails in
well informed circles that his death
will greatly weaken the Influence of
the powerful war party favoring ,n
aggressive policy in Manchuria of
which do Plehve with Viceroy Alexieff,
Grand Duke Mikhailovitch, M. He
zobrazoff and General Wogack as sec
onds, was a most prominent member
thus possibly influencing future events
of the war in the east.
The fact that de Plehve was notor

ed shortly after manifesting more 1!.

the Jewish question, causes much com

HE RECALLS AN ORDER
Prohibiting the Handling of Business
of the Beef Companies Another
Movement to Bring About a Settle
of the StriKe.
Chicago, July 28. All the railroads
enterin Chicago may become involved
in the butchers' strike. Lawrence J.
Curran, president of the freight hand
lers' union, today ordered all members
of the union employed by the various
railroads throughout Chicago to refuse
to handle any freight whatsoever fcr
the packing houses, where thousands cf
employes are now on a strike. If the
freight handlers live up to the order
of their president, it will be severe r.n
the packers, and "the men say expli
citly that no freight delivered by or
billed to the packing companies, wheth
er delivered at freight houses by teams
or in cars is to" be touched by the mem
bers of the union. What the railroad
officials will do has not been decide.
A meeting of the railroad manager
was held tonight to discus the situa
tion, but what action, if any was taken,
has not been made public.
Aft?r issuing his general order,
President Curran, reconsidered his ac
tion and Is now holding his order in
abeyance, pending a conference to
morrow morning with the leaders of
the allied trades unions, whose mem
bers are on strike.
President Curran's order to the men
was as follows: "At a meeting with
the business agents of the local freight
handler union today it was decKlfd
that all men under the Jurisdiction of
our organization In the varlt-u? rail
roads in Chicago be ordered not to
deliver any freight for the packers,
whether this freight is delivered at thes
freight houses by teams or in cars "
The order, whic h was rigned by Presi
dent Curran and the business agents
was posted in all railroad freight, hous
es tonight." -
At the same time that this tep wa-
taken by the freight handlers another
effort to bring about another conference
between the packers arid the strikers
was made. Henry C. Wallace, the wilt
er and lecturer on agricultural topics,
of Des Moines, Iowa, and A. L. Ames,
of Buckingham, Iowa, president of the
Corn Pelt Meat Producers' association,
are fponsors for the new mcYi-ment -r
peace. Wallace find Ames came to
Chicago today and immediately went
into conference with' the strike lead
crs. Mr. Donnelly and his es.isUnts
were tcld by Mr. Wallace of tha haid
ships the strike was imposing on the
live stock raisers, and they' were asked
if some concessions besides those; offer
ed at the last conference between th-
packers and fctrlke leader could not
be suggested in order to bring th
present conflict to an end.
Mr. Donnelly, who was made spoker
man for the ltfbor leaders, said hj
would welcome mother conference with
the employers. He also informed Mr.
Wallace that th strikers were now
willing to concede the time limit in
which the men should be relnstate-d.
At the last conerenc j with the packers,
Mr. Donnelly insisted that the men be
reinstated within ten days. The pack
ers refused to agree to this limitation,
holding to the original agreement which
allcwed forty-five, days for reinstate
ment. Mr. Wallace said tonight that
he and Ames wo i!d call on the pack
ers' representatives tovmorrow and en
deavor to bring about another confer
ence. Tonight both sides ty the dispute at
tlx stock ".!. wre claiming victory.
According to packers nearly off the
plants in Ch ;agj are running at nearly
their full cipaclty. On the other hand,
tne labor leaders declare that the rack
ing industry In Chicago is demoralized
and that the business is at a stand
still. That the statements of the labor
leaders are not altoether true U evi
denced by the fact ti.-at the packers aie
slaughtering thousands of sinimals ev
rey day. There were several -desertions
from the ranks of the strikers
today, but tKls less was partly offset
by the quitting of a number of the
strike breakers. '
(THE ANSWER WAS FINAL.
Chicago, July 28. Arthur Meeker
of the -Armour Packing company, to
day declared that answer given by the
packers at the conference with the
state board of arbitration last night
reflected in its entirety the position
of the packers.
"Our position," he said, "Is that we
had an agreement with the butcherH
organization and allied trades which
they failed to live up to. Under the
circumstances the packers do not care
to make any further agreement, with

TWO COMPANIES WEAKENING.
Chicago. July 28. Although the rep
resentatives of the packing companies
declare that they desire no
further agreements with their
striking employes and thu
no negotiations with them were con
templated, rumors are persistent that
two big companies Schwarzchlld and
Sulzberger and the Cudahy Packing
company are ready to make terms with
the men. The effect of the strike on
the local trade Is beginning to be felt.
Chicago, July 28. This afternoon
133 men all members of the union de
serted the strikers and returned to
work at Armour's plant. Twenty
eight are car leers and the others
skilled butchers. All were put -at work
at once. "We have the strike won
right now," de.-la.red Superintendent
Conway of the Armour company.
