General Min, Tyrant of Mos
cow, Shot by a Young Girl.
Thirty-Two Deaths From Bomb Explos
ion at Premier's House The Cuban
Rebellion New York Central In
dicted Program of Bryan Recep
tion New York Wheat Crop.
General Min, commander of the
Seminovsky Guard regiment, who sup
pressed the riots at Moscow last De
cember, was assassinated at Peteiholf
Sunduy ulght.
Geiiorul Min was ut the railway sta
tion with his family when he was kill
ed. The deed was committed by a
young girl, who fired live shots from a
revolver Into his back, killing him lu
ntantly. Madame Min seized the assassin by
the hand und held her until the police
arrived. After her arrest the girl
showed the police a bomb lying In the
station, telling them to beware.
To the police the girl acknowledged
that the had done the deed, saying
that sho had executed the sentence of
tho fighting organisation of the Social
revolutionists, but she refused to give
hor name.
The young daughter cf Premier
Stolypln who was Injured by the
bomb explosion In the premier's sum
mer home at Peterholf Saturday and
who was erroneously repotted to have
died, Is still niive and passed a quiet
night under the effects of an opiate.
The premier's son, who also was hurt,
Is better today.
Two more persons Injured by the ex
plosion died during the night, bringing
the total number of denths up to 32.
One of tho most painful features of
the tragedy was the delay In securing
medical aid for the Injured, as over
an hour elapsed before an ambulance
M. Stolypln's one thought was for
his daughter, and he kept exclaiming,
"For God's sake, fetch a doctor. Oh,
my poor girl."
It was fully half an hour before the
beginning was made to systematically
clear tho wreckage, dur.ng whlcl. the
Injured sufTered agonies. At dusk
torches were lighted and by the fitful
light from these the work was contin
ued and the walls were shored up with
strong beams.
Insurgent Forces Well Supplied.
The town of San Juan de Martinez
In Cuba, which on Thursday was oc
cupied by a bank of insurgents 1111
cupied by a hand of Insurgents un
ier the command of Pino Gueri a, again
Is In possession of the constituted
forces of the republic.
At 5:110 o'clock Friday evening the
troops under command of Colonels
Dacallao and Avalo arrived there from
I'Inar del Rio, but news of their coming
aud preceeded them by several hours
and by noon tho last of Guerra's men
had left, taking with them all the
borses they could gather.
Unofficial advices received at Ha
vana from the western part of the
province of Pinar del Rio are to the
effect that the Insurgent forces now
concentrating west of San Juan de
Martinez are far more formidable than
had been supposed and also are better
supplied for camping and a long cam
paign. Palma Contemplates an Amnesty.
The anxiety of President Palma to
extend every opportunity for peace
u lthout bloodshed and his desire to per
mit those who joined the Insurrection
under misguidance to repent and re
turn to their homes unmolested, com
bined with the general wish to end a
situation fraught with so much loss
and suffering, has led to a considera
tion by tho president and his cabinet
of a project decreeing a 30-day amnes
ty period, during which the insurrec
tionists are Invited to lay down their
arms and return to their peaceful pur
suits. The Piatt Amendment.
The Piatt amendment, 11s the legis
lation which defined the conditions on

draw from Cuba and turn the Island
Dver to tho control of the Cuban peo
ple was known, provided that part of
the new republic's constitution should
;ont:iin certain provisions concerning
the future relations ot tho United
States with Cuba. The third of these
provisions was:
"That the government of Cuba con
ients that the United States may ex
ercise the right to Intervene for the
preservation of Cuban independence,
:he maintenance of a government ade
juute for the protection of life, prop
urty and individual liberty, and for dis
charging the obligations with respect
to Cuba Imposed by the treaty of Pails
on tho United States, now to be as
sumed and undertaken by the govern
ment of Cuba."

Federal Grand Jury at Chicago
Returns 10 Indictments.
District Attorney Says Penalty F01
Each Offense Alleged Is a Fine ol
Not Less Than $1,000 Nor More
Than $20,000 There Are 6,428
Counts In the 10 Indictments.
Chicago, Aug. 28. The first aud
second federal grand juries returned 10
indictments against the Standard Oil
company before Judge Bethea lu the
United States circuit court. The In
dictments which contain 0,420 counts
Jre all in connection with the granting
of rebates.
Each of the 0,428 counts in the 10
Indictments covers an alleged offense
and Is based on a tank car shipment of
petroleum products from the refineries
at Whiting, Ind.
These shipments, It Is stated, were
carried by the Chicago, Burlingtoti &
Quincy, Chicago & Alton, Chicago &
Eastern Illinois, Evansvllle & Terre
Haute, Illinois Central, Southern and
Lake Shore & Michigan Southern rail
roads. According to a statement by the dis
trict attorney the Burlington & Alton
roads "had published lawful rates of
18 cents per 100 pounds to East St.
Louis from Whiting and 1914 cents to
St. Louis, but carried oil for the Stan
dard Oil company on a Becret unpub
lished rate at C and 7V4 cents to those
points respectively."
The statement then continues:
"On shipments to points In the
South beyond Grand Junction the
Standard Oil company should have
paid the different lawful rates for the
different points of destination, but was
given concessions which averaged
about 27 per cent of the published
rate. The same Is true of shipments
handled by the Chicago & Eastern Il
linois and Evansvllle & Terre Haute
to Evansvllle, Ind., and points beyond.
"The concessions given to Standard
Oil company by the Lake Shore &
Michigan Southern road were In the
shape of cancellations of storage
charges at Chicago of 5 cents per ton
per day on all oil delayed In delivery.
Other oil shippers were compelled to
pay the storage charges.
"The charges against tho Illinois
Central and Southern railroads are the
same lis those In relation to the ship
ments made to points beyond Grand
It was declared by the district at
torney's office that the penalty for each
offense alleged in the indictments is a
fine of not less than $1,000 nor more
than $20,000. It is believed by the
government attorneys that the lawyers
for the Standard Oil company will en
ter the appearance of the corpora
tion In court as soon as they have ex
amined the indictments. There is no
authority at present allowing tho ar
rest of the officers of a corporation
against which Indictments have been
Greely-Funston Dispute Rival For the
Sampson-Schley Mix-Up.
Los Angeles, Aug. 28. Another
Sampson-Schley controversy is likely
to grow out of the criticisms by Major
General Greely of Brigadier General
Funston, growing out of the conflict
in orders during the days following
the earthquake in San Francisco. Lieu
tenant General Adna R. Chaffee, who
lives here, gave out the following in
terview: "Fortunately there are few officers
with General Greely's propensity for
fingering into matters that would bet
ter be left alone. When I mapped out
the present scheme of military divis
ions and departments in 1 90S it wns at
Secretary Root's request and the result
met his approval.
"There is not the slightest reason
why there should he an embarrassing
conflict of duties, unless one or the
other has a tendency to mix in busi
ness not his own. In the San Fran
cisco disaster the respective duties ol
Generals Funston and Greely were
clear. As General Greely was absent
when the trouble occurred, Funston
was, of course, In supreme command.
And I know that he was quite compe
tent to carry that resiwnslbllity."
Distribution of Crown Lands.
St. Petersburg, Aug. 2S. The distri
bution of crown appanages, the first
part of ,the administration's agrarian
program by which It Is hoped to win
tho peasantry to tho support of the
government at tho coming elections,
was put in effect yesterday when an
ukase was published transferring 4,
BflO.000 acres of appanage lands to the
Peasants' bank for distribution to the
peasants. The urgency of tho situa
tion is such that the ukase, which was
signed the dav, of tho attempt on the
life of Premier Stolypln, was gn.ctlcd
without wailing for final decision as to
the method aud terms of payment. The
principal question, whether the latter
shall he .".'! or (10 years, has not yet
been decitb'd.' Tho announcement on
this point and of the transfer of 10,000,
000 ncre3 of crown lands will be made

Congressman Longworth Denies His
Wife Is to Assist Him In Canvass
For Re-Election.
Cincinnati, Aug. 24. "Ye:i, Mrs.
Longworth will unveil the Ohio monu
ment to William McKinley at Colum
bus Sept. 14 next," said Congressman
Nicholas Longworth. "I thought It
eminently appropriate for her to do so,
considering the association of Presi
dent McKinley and her father and In
view of the manner of her father's
succession to the presidency."
"What part will Mrs. Longworth take
In your campaign for re-election to
congress?" was asked.
"She will not take part. That is set
tled absolutely," Mr. Longworth be
gan. "But for a noble, wifely woman, a
Roosevelt, to remain lnnctlve " the
correspondent ventured.
Far from being displeused Mr. Long
worth smiled and said:
"The story that I have engaged
rooms for my wife, myself anil many
friends at the state convention In Day
ton is not true. I do not think I shall
attend, and certainly Mrs. Longworth
will not.
"Regarding the so-called Cleveland
picnic, at which it has been stated
Mrs. Longworth Is to start her cam
paigning for me, she was not even in
vited to be there. I was asked to at
tend and speak at the reunion of the
Cuyahoga, county Republican clubs,
but found that I could not do so be
cause other matters Intervene. So I
have declined the Invitation."
So It Is determined that Mrs. Long
worth will not follow the example of
many American women In England
who welcomed her recently and who
take a most active part in politics and
campaign for their husbands.
