St. Petersburg, August 19.—A call to an uncompromising war with terrorism and revolution in Poland was sounded in the imperial telegram of congratulation to Governor General Skallon of Warsaw, on his escape from the bombs of would be assassins at Warsaw Saturday in this telegram from Emperor Nicholas. After thanking Divine Providence for saving the governor general’s life “for me and Russia," continues: “Do not be discouraged; be resolute in the battle with insensate heresy and sedition." On account of present conditions in Poland it would be impossible to execute the imperial will as the police have prac tically been driven from the streets of the Polish capital and the prevailing mil itary measures are believed to be inade quate to cope with the revolutionists. Hence the text of the telegram is re garded here as Indicating the intention of the Emperor to strengthen the hands of General Skallon or his successor by furnishing more troops, empowering the use of sterner methods than hitherto were permissible and the formation of a special ministry to take over the gov ernment of the Polish provinces. The establishment of what is practically a dictatorship for Poland is hinted at by the Svet, the governmetn organ. HAMMERSTEIN, IMPRESARIO. Hasn’t Dignity Enough Yet, He Says, But Feels it Coming. From the New York Times. The Manhattan Grand Opera House, Oscar Hammerstein's theatrical venture, will open on November 19. The new im presario is still trying out applicants for positions in the chorus of the Thirty fourth street house. About twenty-five men and twenty women came to the Vic toria theatre yesterday morning. Mr. Hammerstein heard them run the scale and ring fragments of their favorite songs, while he puffed a long cigar and expressed his approval or disapproval. Oscar Hammerstein is president, vice president, secretary and everything else of consequence in the new grand opera company; therefore he speaks for the company. And speaking for the company yesterday Mr. Hammerstein had nothing but sympathetic tilings to say about Mr. Conried, the man he considers his rival. "What is his name?” Mr. Hammer stein asked, referring to Mr. Conried, but confessing his inability to remember his name. "Oh! Conried, that is it. I wish him no bad luck. I hope ne will continue in the condition of affluence which he enjoys at the present time." But the new impresario couldn’t help shaking his head doubtfully. "Far be it from me to wish that he should return to his old trade. No, no, not that; I could not wish it." He waited a moment, and a newspaper reporter Anally asked: "Why, what was that?!’ "Well, I guess it was making rat traps In Hungary. No, I should not want him to go back to that." The new Impresario sat in a box in the dim theatre a few mornings ago when the applicants were ready to sing for him. A piano had been wheeled to the stage, and a single drop curtain shut off the front of the stage from the bald brick walls in the rear. Most of the applicants among the women were Americans. Almost all the men were Italians. Some of the men singers had the appearance of subway guards on a holiday. Mr. Hammerstein said that the persons who sang yester day had had long and excellent training in singing, though they lacked stage ex perience. The try-out started with a young woman on the stage, who stepped in front of the little dell and began a life and death strugle with the flower song from "Faust.” Ater the first 10 words Mr. Ham merstein flipped his cigar, turned down : his thumb, and called out: j "Enough! Away from the stage. Give I the feller with the books your name.” A very tall Italian, with his hair oiled and his frock coat newly pressed, sang a ! note or two in most impressive style, but | he too, was stopped by the impresario. Up and down in the dark space be side the orchestra seats walked two 1 dozen Italians, each whistling or hum I mlng the thing he though would most surely impress the new impresario. Now and then they would bump Into one an other, but they kept on rehearsing just the same. Hammerstein cared to hear only the scale from some of the applicants. Time and time again the singers would hand the pianist some music, and would begin to roll their eyes, whereupon the Im presario would yell down from his dark box: "Cut it out! Only the scale! Only that!” A greasy-haired, fat boy. wearing eye glasses, paced out in front of the gar nered golden wheat, and let Ay In a high tenor voice. He escaped his hands and wabbled Ills head. Tie felt called upon to act as well as sing. When he had Anlshed he. seemed to stoop down as If ho would gather up an imaginary bouquet. "Now. look at that.” Hammerstein said. "That tenor Is poor by himself: In a chorus, grand. I tell you. these American voices are grand. I shall train them up. That Is what I like about most of these men. They haven't been on the stage, and I can train them my self. They will grow up with me." When ail the men and women had had a hearing Hammerstein called them all to the stage to look over the contracts One little snub-nosed girl signed and then hurried away with her man escort She was bubbling over with happiness. "Isn't it lovely. Arthur!" she cried. The man did not seem so sure of it. Japanese Midshipman Dies.

HUE UNO ARREST Liberal Leaders Are Charged With Conspiracy TO ASSASSINATE PALMA All the Men Arrested Deny Knowledge of Alleged Crime and Say They Are Victims of Governmen tal Persecution. Havana, August 19.—Half a dozen highly ! prominent leaders of the liberal party have been taken into custody on the charge of conspiracy against the govern ment and plotting to assassinate Presi dent Palma. The events of today have shown that the government was fully aroused to the necessity of putting down not only the open outlawry in western Cuba, but also of capturing and confining thte alleged leaders of this movemet who were strong ly suspected of plotting the assassination of the President and overthrowing the present government by force. To that end the six members of the liberal party were arrested. The men arrested here are Gen. Carlos Garcia Velez and his brother, Fausto, ex-Cuban consul at Bremen; ex Senator Monteaguedo, Col. Manuel Ple dra, chief of police in the House of Rep resentatives, and Gen. Enrique Loynaz del Castillo, a former congressman from Puerto Principe province. These men are charged with conspiracy. Telegrams were sent to Santiago directing the arrest of Juan Galberto Gomez of Havana, known as the colored orator and one of the most Influential leaders. Gomez has been late ly campaigning throughout Santiago pro vince. The police of Santiago were also ordered to arrest Demetrio Castillo. Go- ; mez and Castillo are charged with inciting to outlawry and revolution. The Havana arrests were made by the city police on charges preferred by the chief of the government secret service. Gen. Enrique Lyonez del Castillo man aged to make his escape. Col. Manuel Pledra is the same man who endeavored to start a revolution in 1905. He was cap tured but subsequently pardoned and re mained in the employ of the government as chief of police in the House. General Castillo is a radical man and on various occasions has been a disturb ing element In politics. The details of this alleged conspiracy are not yet clear. The officials assert that they have sufficient evidence to secure convictions. Arrests In Santiago. Dispatches from Santiago say the two arrests there were accomplished this evening without excitement or resistance. It is reported here that the rebels In the Province of Pinar Del Rio have received considerable reinforcements In the remoter districts. Cuban veteran voluteers are assembling to attack and disperse all re bels in the remoter districts are said to be well armed and probably well supplied with ammunition. Troops are being held in readiness to be transported to Pinar Del Rio and the Western railway has been notified that a train for this purpose may be requested at any moment. In view of the rumors and evidences of plots the government is loath to send the Havana troops away. The entire forco of rural guards number 3000, five hundred of whom are scattered through Pinar Dei Rio province. | A law doubling the size of the rural guard almost passed congress at the last session. It was not acted upon by the I senate. President Palma will sleep in the palace tonight. Victims of Persecution. The five men arrested here this after noon were interviewed in jail. They denied any knowledge of why they had been arrested. They declare they are simply victims of persecution. The police lieutenant who allowed Gen eral Del Castillo to escape has been ar rested. The revolutionists in Pinar Del Rio province number at least 200 and proba bly more. Some ammunition and three • prisoners have already been captured. General Rodriguez, commander of the rural guard, at the conclusion of a con ference with President Palma, held at a late hour tonight said to the Associated Press: *'1 regret to say our troops were obliged to fight rebels again today. None of the guards have been wounded as far as we know. We are not aware what the other side suffered. They were scattered and fled. There were two encounters. One took place at Punta Corda, and the other at Sanjuan de Martinez.” RAMSEY, RAILROAD BUILDER. Personal Side of Man Who Will Con struct New System. From Various Sources. Josephp Ramsey's first work In railroad ing was as a member of an engineering corps on the Pittsburg, Cincinnati and St. Louis railroad. There he had an op portunity to show the stuff of which he was made. He did his work so well that In four months he was advanced. He then became assistant engineer of the Cincinnati and Muskegon Valley rail road, which position he acceptably filled. Mr. Ramsey progressed right along In various positions. In 17S9 he was made chief engineer and superintendent of the Pittsburg and Southern. From there he was transferred to the Pittsburg. Char tiers and Younghlogheny road as chief en gineer and general manager, where he remained until, 1883. During that time he also filled the position of general man ager and chief engineer of two other roads, having charge of three lines of railway. The next change that Mr. Ramsey made was In August, 1883. when he went to Ohio as chief engineer of the Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton road, which posi tion he held for four years. In 1390 he became assistant to the president of the Citctnnatl, Cleveland. Chicago and St. Louis road, and in March of the same year was made president of the Pekin Union railroad. The following year he was elected vice president of the Cincin nati, Wabash and Michigan, and in 1393 was made general manager of the Cin cinnati. Cleveland, Chicago and St. Louis railroad and vice president and general manager of the Dayton and Union road. From April, 1893, to December, 1896, Mr. Ramsey was general manager of the Ter minal Railroad association of St. Louis. In December, 1896. he became vice presi dent and general manager of the Wabash svstem and several subsidiary companies. In July. 1901, he was made president of the Wabash system, with headquarters in St. Louis. Last year, after a vigorous contest between Mr. Gould and himself for control of the Wabash, he was forced out. Getting the Wabash Into Pittsburg was one of Ramsey's hardest fights. The work Is said to have cost 120,000,000. Ram sey was right In it from start to finish, and knew all the details.

Cartwright & Co. 220 21st Street FIFTY-ACRE SAND BANK FOR SALE. This sand is the best we have seen in Alabama or Georgia for either general building purposes, concrete work or blocks or for sand-lime brick. It has brought, based on its superiority, and should continue to bring from ten to twenty cents per ton more than any other sand on the market. • It is entirely free from trash, pebbles, clay or other im purities. It has an average depth of thirty feet, with very little over-burden and the supply is therefore practically in exhaustible. It is so located as to insure the sand pits always above water-level, uneffected by freshets or high-waters, and this would enable producers to guarantee absolute regularity of shipments. It offers other advantages, not the least of which is its immediate proximity to transportation facili ties. Sample and additional information concerning this, or other opportunities for profitable investment in our terri tory will be furnished by SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY H. B. BIGHAM, Asst. Gen’l Industrial Agent, Atlanta, Ga. him is that he made contracts with the great street plants insuring tonnage suf ficient for the Wabash to repair the ex penditure in a remarkably short time. The Pennsylvania railroad had its abid ing place in Pittsburg for years, and fought with all its vast power the ad vance of the Wabash. Perhaps the happiest day in the life of Joseph Ramsey was when his car crossed over the bridge to the "forbidden city" in July, 1904. At this time Mr. Gould said, looking over the work which had been accom plished by Mr. Ramsey: "Ramsey, this is miraculous.” It has been frequently said that Mr. Ramsey was never so happy as when ho had a fight on his hands. Several years ago the Wabash had trou ble with the engineers, and Chief Arthur, who was alive then, sent word to Mr. Ramsey that he would like to talk the matter over with him. Tn response Mr. Ramsey said: "Tell Mr. Arthur that I shall be very glad to see him personally, but not as a representative of our engineers." This was a cut from which Arthur never really recovered, and it served to embit ter the feeling between the engineers and the president to a marked degree. Yet with all of this Mr. Ramsey managed to tide over the issue and emerged without a strike and a settlement that was satis factory to all concerned. A critic says of Ramsey’s faults: "They are stubbornness, lack of tact and jeal ousness of authority, but to sum up his good traits would require for more space. "Among his associates he is popular, and none of them but wish him success in his fight, but many of tnem. are now of the opinion that the victor of so many hard fights is going dow’n to ignominous defeat. "The many who have called upon him at his office will always remember the keen gray eyes lifted like a flash from some document, and It Is on record that he Is always reading something, but more than all else they will recall the man-to man attitude which he assumed, and the frank and absolutely fair manner in which he heard them. “Anyone and everyone calling upon Mr. Ramsey can get a hearing. There Is not the usual red tape procedure to gain ad mission to liis office. All that is neces sary is to state your name, and if you desired your business, and then wait your turn." Joseph Walton, once known as the coal king of western Pennsylvania, was at tracted to Ramsey. Walton, taking a ride over a little narrow-gauge line, no ticed a man running ahead of the engine on a steep grade scattering sand on the rails. Another day he saw the same man doctoring up a crippled locomotive which had broken down on the road. Again ho saw him turning switches for his train, and finally he spoke, having learned that it was Ramsey, the young superinten dent. "Young man," said the old millionaire "I’ve been watching you some time. I’m Walton, the coal man. I’d like to stake you in some business, for you’re a won der. Better come and see me tomorrow and we’ll talk things over. I’ve some thing better than this jerkwater road.” “Is it a railroad proposition?” said Ramsey. j "Railroad hell,” said Walton, whose plain talk was one of his strong points. “No, it’s coal.” “Much obliged, but I guess I’ll stick at railroading,” said Ramsey. “An’ by - I’ll bet you own your own line some day,” shouted Walton as he grasped Ramsey’s hand. “Always re member that old ‘Joe’ Walton has a mil lion or two, and if you want to buy a road just come and see me.” Walton is long since dead. Girls Displace “Buttons.” From the London Dally Mail. The charity school boy and the boy In buttons wore two types of boyhood out of which Dickens contrived to get a great deal of humor. The first named has en tirely disappeared, while page boys of the “Joe the Fat Bay” class are almost extinct, and the last specimens are to be found in clubs and hotels. At one time the possession of a bright little hoy in buttons was held to indicate that the mistress had risen above the rank of a mere suburbanite and was reaching the fringe of society, but now the parlor* maid has taken his place. Within the past nine or ten years the demand for page boys for private houses has dwindled to almost nil. except in the casp of doctors, who combine in them the duties of door opener, medicine carrier and hoot cleaner. People nowadays prefer to have a smart parlor maid to open the door and re ceive callers, or to employ a young for eigner of 18 or 20 years of age, who not only acts as footman, hut also as window clenner and general handy man for a trifling wage, leaving after he has earned the language. In the West End clubs and hotels, how ever. there is still a demand for the ser vlees of the boy in buttons. What has become, also, of the “tiger.” the perky little being in top hat and top hoots who sat with folded arms and su percilious air on the back seat of the high dogcarts driven by the young bloods of thirty years ago? Another Lynching Is Feared. Charleston. S. C., August 19.—A special to the News and Courier from Salem says this afternoon a negro living In Bateshurg county attempted criminal assault and badly injured a little white girl. A mes sage sent from the governor's ofTice to the sheriff urges" him to protect the man if caught, but it is feared that the negro will be lynched as soon as captured. A Suggestion.
