St. Petersburg.'April 6. At last
the terrorists have succeeded in
penetrating the cordon of guards
about the czar, and in-smuggling
high explosives into the palace it
self, and as a result there is a feel-
ins of ADDrehension among -all of
the high officials and . the guar-ls
about his majesty have been treb
led. 1 . , - - 1 ' ,
Late vesterdav afternoon, as the
guard at lhe palace" was being
chanced , Lieutenant-Colonel -Shi-
raupski, who was in command, no
ticed that one of the Cossacks who
had been posted at the main door
was wearing the sword of an infan
try omcer, and not the eabre ot a
Cossack. He thereupon called a
corporal and placed the man under
arrest.- He was at once ' searched
and incriminating; documents were
found on" his person.
Search" of the police revealed two
packages of dynamite, placed
against the mam door ot the impe
rial suite, in at dark- corner, where
they were not likely to be noticed
A searching inquiry, was at once
instituted, with the--result - that
twelve secret police agents were ar
rested as accomplices, and all were
hurried to the Peter and Paul for
tress, where they were interviewed
by General Trepoff. i
The fact that the terrorists have
succeeded in -corrupting members
of the secret police and soldiers hss
caused much alarm, and another
attempt against a iiign . official is
looked for. ---r -

New York, April 4. Robert S.

ican ambassador! to. France,
just arrived in Paris from St. Pe
tersburg, says he is surprised at the
reports that there was . a desire to
conclude peace at any price mani
fested in official circles, cables - tbe
Paris correspondent of the Herald.
According to Ambassador McCor
mic no such desire exists in St. Pe-
"On the' contrary, in officials cir
cles, there is," he said, "a general
desire to continue the war to the
bitter end, and there are great
hopes . that Admiral RojeBtvensky
will meet the Japanese fleet and
gain a victory which may, in one
day, change the entire aspect of the
war. All .the hopes of Russia are
now centered in that fleet, and its

of Police, aided by two companies

a thorough search of Wola, a suburb
of this city, chiefly inhabited by
crimiaala,,revolutionaries and sub-
pected persons. ;Tha " police seized
quantities of revolutionary pam

persons. The search occupied the
whole of the night.
Mussoree, India, April 4. Sev
eral earthquake shocks were expe
rienced here today, commencing at
6:lo A. M. The first was the most
severe and continued for three min
utes. Eleven shocks were distinct
ly felt. .
Considerable damage was done
to property. The left wing of the
Savoy Hotel entirely collapsed, the
new Catholic church was wrecked,
and every house in the place was
more or less damaged. Several
homes were hurriedly vacated.
There were many small landslides.
The mall crackled in five places.
Several casualties are reported.
One woman was killed and many
natives were seriously injured.
Reports from the Debra Dun and
Rajhur districts show that exten
sive damage has been done.
Lahore, April 4 Shortly after
6 this morning a succession of se
vere earthquake shocks" were felt
here. The damage was extensive.
It is feared that there was much
loss of life in the city, where many
tall old houses in the city collapsed
and parts of lofty buildings crashe
on email adjacent dwellings.

London, April 4. A dispatch to

has occurred here, accompanied by
serious loss of life and grpat damage

cathedral and Juma Masjid, one of
tbe finest mosques ia India, are se

headless, legless trunk of a young
man was found late last night on
Vallejo street, near Powell. It was
still warm and the flesh was quiv
ering when picked up. The body
was wrapped in an old blanket,
tied up with fisherman's twine. A
man was seen to throw the bundle
away by a passerby, who pursued
him, but failed to overtake him.

Chicago, April 4. A political
tornado" today overwhelmed one of -the
most ruggedly unique leaders
in the country. Incidentally, the -;
republican party met defeat in a
memorable effort to capture tha
mayoralty of Chicago. As a direct
result, the city is officially commit
ted to the policy of the quickest
possible cessation of private fran
chises for public utilities. Muni-,
cipal ownership is especially threat
ening street-car lines-valued high,
up in the millions.

J j. 5 a 1 1 1 1

here, John May nard
Harlan, son of Associate Justice
Harlan, of the supreme court of the
United States, was a loser for re
publican candidate for mayor. The
defeat is attributed to an extraor
dinary whirl of causes, starting
with political revenge and taking
in a wide sweep, embracing the
most up-to-date socialism as a fac
tor. - The victor is Judge Edward
F. Dunne, democrat.
Seldom, if ever, has Chicago wst-
nessed a more lively picturesque
contest. Todoy the' city was hide
ous with 'the ringing of cowbells
and the roar of cannon crackers.
The republican candidate suffer
ed heavily from campaign attacks
charging that he was a political as
sassin. Alleged unworthy leaders
of his own party who had been
thrust from office and power large
ly through Jiarlan s aggressiveness
in previous campaigns were con
spicuously absent from his support.
Districts where republican majori
ties had seemed constant and time
honored as the seasons were omi
nously reported today as "slow.".
Appeals to fear of domination by
corporate wealth appeared to! Bway
many, voters, and perhaps more
than any other influence were in
correctly guaged by the republi
cans. Harlan has been savagely
harassed during the campaign as
the reputed representative of-Wall-"street
interefi.s-injent on fastening
burdensom&franchiBe grants' upon
the'city; i'The jepubHcans, howev- -er,
had figured that the voters sus
ceptible to appeals of this kind
would support the socialist candi
date, Collins, and that losees, if
any, to the republicans would be
more than made up by Harlan's
old-time admirers among independ
ent voters. Estimates however, of
50,000 votes as the total for Collins
(socialist) fell woefully short.
Calculations upon colored voters
were another source of error in re
publican expectations. An unmis
takable defection, suddenly mani
fested to day in districts where Af
ro-Americans are numerous, gave a
severe jolt to republican campaign
managers. The most plausible ex
planation was that Judge Dunne
from the bench in years had shown
an unexampled spirit of fairness to
word colored men and women in
exigencies where freedom from race
prejudice, was sorely needed.
One of the amusing features that
tonight is recalled as tending to
center good nature d feeling in Judge
Dunne s behalf is his record as
a father. He is the bappy parent
of thirteen children. This phase of .
the campaign was snared by "Pap"
Anson, who ha9 an almost equally,
meritorious record in family mat
ters. Anson, the old-time hero of
baseball, waB the democratic can
didate for city clerk. His popular
ity personally was beyond a doubt
a potent help to the democrats, who
seem to hugrly appreciate bis cam
paign statibtjcs, designed to prove
that the democrats, at least in Chi
cago, are the original and genuine
opponents to race suicide.
The plurality for Dunne, dem,,
was 24,248 vo.es over Harlan. In
the city election two jears ego
