CITY.
TWO ITALIANS WERE NAMED
UNKNOWN WRITER INFORMS PO-
LICE OF EXISTENCE OF A
PLOT.
Oakland, Cal., May 17. The ex
treme diligence exercised by the local
police department in guarding Presi
dent Roosevelt during his journey
through and brief visit in Ooakland
was the subject of much comment
Thursday, and this extraordinary pre
caution is now explained by the^ fact,
not heretofore known to the public, of
information received by the authori
ties of a plot, which, carried out, would
have meant the assassination of Presi
dent Roosevelt in this city. Late
Wednesday night Mayor Olney re
ceived a communication signed
"K. N.," stating that two men named
Charles Girardo and Antonio Poli
vinco, the latter an Italian who tried
to kill the emperor of Austria before
St. Stephen's church in Vienna, May
13, 1867, had agreed to meet at Gi
rardo's house to discuss the killing of
the president. The writer added: "I
heard that Girardo was in corres
pondence with Czolgosz at Los An
geles."
The letter was referred to the po*
lice, who decline to discuss the matter.
In the Yosemite Valley.
Raymond, Cal., May 16.President
Roosevelt arrived here yesterday

A. B. Moses of the West Aurora high

will prove the merits of his method
and produce results that will even sur
pass all development and progress

proposition to give the new method a

INSTANCES OF HIDEOUS BRUTAL
ITY ALMOST BEYOND DE-
SCRIPTION.
London, May 17. Communications
received by the Jewish relief societies
of England from Kishenev. Kiev and
other, cities in South Russia indicate
that the movement against the Jews
has almost universal support. It is
stated that this fact is frequently dis
guised, but is also sometimes openly
avowed. The. police and soldiers are
represented as utterly callous to the
sufferings even of women and clnl
dren, except where the attention of
high officials has been directly called
to the outrages. Thousands of Jews
are migrating southward, often with
out any definite idea of whither they
are bound or of how to obtain food
by the way. The forced exodus from
Kiev alone involves 37,000 persons,
