Kuicide Cbeckuiales Assassination.
New York, July 21. The Herald
says: Our St. Petersburg correspond
ent telegraphs to-night fresli particu
lars concerning the recent plot laid to
assassinate the Czar. M. Baronoff,
chief-of-police, had received an anony
mous letter stating that on tins 13th of
July the Emperor of Russia was to be
assassinated. The letter contained
nothing more. " Baronoff made inquiry
in every direction and ascertained that
a young student had committed suicide
under extraordinary circumstances.
Having first run himself through with
his sword without having injured a vi
tal part, he then lodged a bullet with
his revolver in his left temple, and
then finding himself still alive, fired
again in the temple and in the gapin'g
wound made by his sword. This detcr
termined suicide awakened M. Bar
onoff's suspicions. He found the man
apparently dead, but in fact still breat h
ing ami m . a swoon.. Baronoff, by the
aid of doctors, caused the student to
come to his sences and to speak. The
student declared that he had formed
part of a secret society of twenty Ni
hilists, who liad all sworn to kill the
Emperor. They had all drawn lots and
it had fallen to his lot to carry out the
plan of assassination on the 13th day of
July. Daggers were suspended over
his head, anil his brother Nihilists swore
to kill him if lie should show the
slightest hesitation, but notwithstand
ing this threat, his heart failed him and
ho resolved to die by his own hand.
Before committing suicide he had writ
ten Baronoff Avith the conviction that
one of his fellow conspirators would
immediately take his place. The stu
dent lived till the 18th of July before
breathing his last. He revealed the
names ot his brother Nihilists, Avho
have all been secured by the police.
Conklinc's Future JtloYeiiiciits.
Philadelphia, July 21. -The Ledger's
New York specials learn from well in
formed sources that Senator Conkling
as soon as the Albany contest is decid
ed will take a trip across the Atlantic
with a view to rest and recuperation
and on his return in October he will
make a trip through tho Southern
States, including in his programme the
Cotton International Exposition at At
lanta, Georgia. His friends say he is
solicitous about strengthening his po
litical influence in that section and to
that end will take the earliest opportu
nity to remove the unfavorable impres
sions of his stalwart speeches during
the last year and especially during the
Presidential campaign which they are
supposed to have made on the South
ern mmu. Ihe ex-Senator clearly has
not abandoned the expectation ot sonu
day being President of the United
States and if he has weakened his posi
tion at tins end oi the Union he would
seem to consider it sound policy to do
what he can to strengthen himself else
where. It will be his aim to demon
strate to the Southern mind that the
stalwart policy meant the restoration of
southern prosperity and southern influ
ence -within the legitimate meaning of
those terms, and that tho pcoplo who
have been representing him as hos
tile to either were animated either by
malice or personal hostility.

J. Goshen, in addressing his constitu
ents at Ripon, his first speech since his
return from Constantinople, testified to
the cordial co-operation of six ambas
sadors of the powers in settling the
Greek question. He declared emphati
cally that he saw no deviation from a
straight course on the part of Russia,
who was so much suspected, and that
no power had been more prudent than
Austria. If it be true that Austria har
bors designs of pushing down to Salo
nica, he had found no trustworthy evi
dence of such a course.

The Gazette has hazarded the opin
ion that if the Chicago, Burlington &
Quincy and Atchison, Topeka & Santa
Fe Railroads and Denver & Rio Grande
Railway are consolidated, Jay Gould
will bo thrown on the defensive and
forced to build a road to connect the
Union Pacific Railways with the Texas
& Pacific. He has declared his' inten
tion of building the latter road through
to the Pacific, and will undoubtedly do
so, because he "needs that in his busi
ness." He must build it in self defence,
because he showed by gaining control
of the Union Pacific, and "standing in"
with the Central Pacific on California
traffic, that he realized what a desira
ble thing it is to have a Pacific termi
nus. The Texas & Pacific will run from
New Orleans to the Pacific, but it will
have in the consolidated C. B. &Q. and
A. T. & S. F. and their joint line, the
Atlantic & Pacific, a formidable rival.
Traffic between Colorado, Kansas and
Nebraska and the Pacific coast and
slope will be desirable, and Gould will
not have that long. Now, by combin
ing his Union Pacific road with the
Central, he has some advantage.
But a line under one management as
the Boston capitalists will have in the
A. & P. and A. T. & S. F. will worry
him. Then extending to Chicago by an
other link the C. B. & Q., there is a
continuous line from Chicago to the
Gould could reach Chicago only by
the circuitous way of the Texas & Pa
cific and his Iron Mountain and the
other lines of his southwestern system
via Kansas City or St. Louis and then
by the Wabash to that city. He must
have a shorter route to Chicago, for the
same reason that he must have a con
tinuous line to Colorado and her two
neighboring States.
There is danger in his relying on the
Central Pacific. First, by building a
competing line to the Central's lower
route, the Southern Pacific, he will
spoil its business and cannot expect any
favors. As soon as the S. P. is extend
ed to a connection with the lines that
Huntington has purchased or will con
trol, the Central will not be obliged to
depend on the Union Pacific, and the
friendly relations heretofore existing
and the fact that the two roads were
parties to a monopolous monotony in
the past will be forgotten, or, at any
rate ignored.
In addition to this, there is no knowing
how much longer the nominal owners
of tho Central will hold that line. The
U. S. government has a mortgage on it,
and may foreclose at any time. On the
other hand, the railway kings, who
have been cheating the government out
of its dues these ten or fifteen years, and
who have stolen enough out of the earn
ings of the road to build the Southern
Pacific, as well as shorter, better, and
competing lines to the subsidized roads
throughout California, are likely to turn
round and compel the grvernment to
take the Central system, or lose every
thing. Jay Gould cannot bulldoze the
government nor pool with its road, and
there is no safety, for the time being,
by relying on the Central, nor none in
the future.
If he is to make the Union Pacific sys
tem pay, he must connect it with the
Texas & Pacific, and by putting in this
link he would secure an unbroken con
nection between San Francisco and
Kansas' City, St. Louis and Chicago. It
is worth striving for, and lie will surely
make the effort.
Now, the only way to make this con
nection is to build south from Denver
through Long' s canyon into New Mex
ico, and then over the route our people
have hoped to see adopted by the D. &
R. G. , to Las Vegas. Gould has pur
chased many roads that never could ex
pect to secure the amount of traffic that
he could control by such a line. The
peal trade would be good, and would
keep on increasing. From this city to
the point where the Texas & Pacific
will cross the Pecos is a short line, and
and the only choice that Gould would
have. In building aline down the Pe
cos Valley he would develop a won
derfully rich section. This is the link
he must put in, and our people would
do as much for him as they would for
the D. & R. G. or anyone who woul
build such a line.
This is not all futile theorizing. We
should not be surprised if Gould is al
ready considering such a project. Our
readers are familiar with the change in
the programme of the proposed Denver
& New Orleans R. R. that has been di
verted from its original course, as first
mapped out. Gov. Evans has said that
tho road would be built to a point at or
near Trinidad.
Ii this is the case a road will be built
from there to Las Vegas to connect
with it, and then down the Pecos. In
this connection it may not be amiss to
republish the following extracts from
an editorial in tho Denver Tribune of
tho 17th, that was unusually severe on
ex-Go v. Evans:
"There is much bitter feeling among
the Denver stockholders of the Denver
& New Orleans at the course which Ex
Governor Evans has taken concerning
the road. He seems to be acting simp
ly as a tail to Jay Gould's kite and in di
rect enmity to the city's interests.
His present plan is to make Pueblo,
as nearly as his master, Jay Gould, can
accomplish it, the distributing point
for the State.
Under certain circumstances the Den
ver & New Orleans might have been
made to pay, but there is no hope for
it now. The intention seems to bo to
make it simply an instrument for Jay
Gould's revenge at the expense of Col
orado interests, and Evans is acting as
his tool to bring this abont."
If the Tribune's fears are realized,
then the road is to go to Pueblo. If so,
why not continue on to Trinidad ? Wrhy
not build to Las Vegas ? May it not be
extended down the Pecos ?
It is not going to hurt Denver to have
a line to Las Vegas, so far as the section
through which it will pass in this Terri
tory. Here is tho great supply point of
the richest portion of New Mexico. Be
tween here and the Raton mountains,
lies the great Maxwell grant, rich in
mineral and agricultural resources,
where vast flocks and herds can be
kept up, and where the finest timber in
the Territory can be secured. The
whole of Colfax, Mora and San Miguel
counties is likewise rich. Wliat better
thing do the ambitious business men of
the "Queen City of the Plains" desire!
Can they better themselves by insuring
commercial intercourse with such an
other rich section, can they find a richer
field for trade ? We think not ! and if
they assist, rather than oppose, the
plans of the Denver & New Orleans as
they are amended, they will never re
gret it. Let the road come on !
There may be some foundation for
the statement that Gov. Evans is play
ing into the hands of Gould. That
schemer is not inclined to build a road
where there is any prospect of a road's
being constructed over the route he re
gards as one that he would select were
he in the construction business. If the
Denver & New Orleans is built Gould
will ultimately control it, that is safe to
But on the other hand, the necessity
for building such a lino may be so ur
gent (as we believe it is) that he will build
at once. It has already been reported
that the Kansas Pacific railroad engin
eers have been making a survey of
Long's canon. May it not be that
Gould is already picking out this route?
