St. Petersburg, July 18.—The poli
tical barometer Is again falling. The
confusion which seems to have taken
possesslon of the upper spheres since
the efforts to form a coalition minis
try failed, coupled with the alarming
reports from the Interior and the atti
tude of parliament, make almost any
thing possible. There has been a
marked renewal of the apprehension
that a crisis may end in coup de etat
^against parliament. The assassination
of Vice Admiral Chouknin and Gen
eral Kozlov, a discovery that behind
the murder of the general was a big
"plot to kill not only General Trepoft
but Prince Putiatin and other courtiers
and a* general epidemic of assassin
ation, which has terrorized not only
the local authorities but even the
police, together with the wild destruc
tion of property by the peasantry In
lialf a dozen provinces during the last
few days, have again strengthened the
small part of the court which believes
Jn resorting U) "extreme measures."
The adoption by the lower house of
parliament of an address to the coun
try will, it is feared, place in the
bands of the reactionists the needed
lever to move the emperor.

stories of the burning of manor

their mania for the destruction of
property, do not discriminate he
tiveen friends mid enemies, as is

Home to Chastise His Son, for
Associated Press to The Bvenltff Times*
New York, July 18.—During a quar

19-year-ol'd son Conrad, at the home of
the son's sweetheart. Miss Clara
Lazarus, in Hast 104th street today,
the youth stabbed his father with a
piece of broken glass, inflicting prob
ably a mortal wound. The elder
Schirmer several weeks ago ordered
his son to cease paying attentions to
Miss Lazarus, but the youth had be
come engaged to her and his mother
pleaded his cause. The father then
consented that the boy should marry
the girl when he was 21 but Schrimer
declared that Conrad must stop stay
ing out so late nights when calling
on his sweetheart. Last night the boy
remained very late and the father
went there in search of him. When
the father atempted to chastise the
son in the presence of his finance the
boy resisted and in the struggle that
ensued the father broke through a
glass panel of the door. Miss Lazarus
attempted to interfere in behalf of
the boy and Conrad seized a piece of
broken glass and plunged it into his
father's side inflicting a dangerous
wound. The wounded man was re
moved to the hospital but refused to
make a charge against his son. Con
rad was arrested.
Was Used as a Motive Power For the
Aaaoelated Preaa to The Evening Tlmea.
Paris, July 18.—The chilk-like shad
of Persia holds the record of having
driven a motor with the most expen
sive brandy as motive power instead
When the shah received his new car
he was as excited as a child with a
new toy and insisted that it should be
set going at once.
Gasoline is not yet a common com
modity in Persia. The place was
searched, but not a gill of the explo
sive spirit could be found. The couf
tiers trembled for their heads as they
told the sublime ruler the truth.
The shah fumed and then his cur
iosity led him to inquire the nature of
the fluid required. It was spirit. The
shah brightened at once. He had lots
of it, 1868 brandy specially purveyed
to the imperial household. The brandy
was brought, the tanks filled and new
motor car soon hummed along under
the explosive force of probably as ex
pensive a brandy as can be anywhere
