IS SEAL OF CZAR
Plan of National Assembly
PROCLAMATION AT MOSCOW
Czar 'Secretly . Prepares to Go to
Ancient Capital to Summon
Assembly on Saturday.
ST. PETERSBURG, Aug. 8. The Rus
felan National Assembly, the firnl gather
ing together of representatives o the
Muscovite people since Emperor Aloxis
Mchaelovltch, the second of the Roma
noffs, summoned the last Zemsky Zobor
in the 17th century, will be proclaimed on
Saturday next The final session of the
rpeclal commission which has been con
Bidering the project as drafted by Minis
ter of the Interior Boullgan and elaborat
ed by the Council of Ministers, was held
at Peterhof today. Its verdict upon the
project as a whole was favorable, and
e.t the conclusion of the session, before
the assembled Grand Dukes, Ministers,
Senators and other members of the com
mission. Emperor Nicholas set the seal of
his approval thereto.
The sitting today continued, from 2:30
in the afternoon until S o'clock at night,
when the commission finished the labors
upon which it had been engaged almost
constantly for the past week. Several of
the members In whom the Emperor re
poses special confidence were requested
"by him to return tomorrow to Peterhof
to assist him in the preparation of a sol
emn manifesto, through which the sum
mons to the representatives of the people
will be issued.
Although it was stated at the com
mencement of the sessions at Peterhof
that Emperor Nicholas had abandoned his
Intention of going to Moscow, the ancient
capital of the empire, to proclaim this
epoch-making change in the institutions
of Russia, the report has been revived,
and it finds credence in spite of the de
nials in court circles today of any knowl
edge of the subject.
It is known that special precautions
have been taken for guarding the rail
road between St. Petersburg and Moscow
over which the Emperor would travel,
and dispatches last week announced the
arrival in Moscow of two additional regi
ments of Cossacks. The same dispatches
told of the thorough search of Moscow
and Its environs for terrorists, whose
headquarters were discovered and the
leaders captured last Sunday. The Asso
ciated Pre?s, however, was informed to
day by the Chancellory of the Ministry
that no plans for the doparturc of the
Emperor to Moscow had been communi
cated, and that the proclamation would
undoubtedly be made from Peterhof.
Though the project has undergone a
number of changes during the various
conferences at Poterhof, it is understood
that its main outlines are substantially
as it emerged from the Council of Minis
ters and described in these dispatches
from time to time.
In principle, the national assembly will
be a deliberative and consultative body
for the discussion of measures laid before
it by the Emperor or his Ministers. It
will have the power to force the with
drawal of ministerial propositions by a
two-thirds vote, which gives it at least
a negative control over legislation. It
will be a large body, probably of over 500
members, chosen by a system of Indirect
elections, and the first session, it is un
derstood, will be held in November. The
elections will take alace in October.
HEFORMS FOR THE CAUCASUS
Viceroy Strives for Them, uut Re
bellion Still Continues.
ODESSA, Aug. P. (Special.) The vice
roy. Count Vorontseff Dasho, is making
great concessions in the Caucasus in an
effort to allay dangerous conditions that
prevail. He travels personally among the
people and -seeks information from them
as to how they may be benefited.
Notables of the different nationalities
under the viceroy's guidance have elab
orated a series of most urgent adminis
trative and fiscal reformB, which will be
brought at once to the attention of the
central government. Dasho indorses those
proposals and advocates their speedy ap
plication. He has also promised to use
his influence in securing careful consid
eration of the languages of the Caucasus,
in order that they may not be crushed
In spite of all this energetic and com
petent work in the interest of reform,
the Caucasus continues in a state of rev
olution. Sometimes the opposition of the
people is violent and it is always daring
and determined. It Is even thought
strikes are more general today than at
any previous time.
The railway workers on the Northern
railway and on the Transcaucaslan line,
which covers 1600 miles, have been Idle
for twelve days and .business in the cities
through which they pass has been at a
standstill, while the ports of Baku. Ba
tum and Novorosslsk have suspended op
erations. French. Austrian. Italian and
English steamship companies refuse to
accept goods destined for those cities.
The population of the region Is thor
oughly warlike, and police and military
patrols are frequently overpowered.
Although Jt is deemed Improbable that
Dasho, able and sincere though he has
shown himself to be, will succeed in re
storing order in the Caucasus until the
general conditions of the empire are
placed upon a settled basis by govern
ment recognition of the demands of the
ASPHALT COMPANY LOSES
Highest Court in Venezuela Says
Concession Should Be Annulled.
OYSTER BAY. Aug. 8. President Roose
velt has been Informed by the department
of State that the Federal Court of Vene
zuela has rendered a decision against the
Bermudez Asphalt Company in the case
involving the so-called Hamilton conces
sion, annulling the concession.
What action may bo taken by this Gov
ernment regarding the matter cannot be
announced at this time. In fact, so far as
can be ascertained here, no determination
of the question has been reached.
It is quite probable that nothing will be
done until Secretary Root, who is now on
a -vacation in Labrador, shall have re
turned "to the United States and consid
ered the subject -with the President in the
light of the report which will be made
hy Judge Calhoun of his Investigation of
the entire asphalt matter.
NEW YORK, Aug. 8. No appeal is now
possible before the Venezuelan courts
sgainst the Judgment, handed jdo.wn by the
Federal Court against the New York &
Bermudez, Asphalt Company, cables the
Herald's correspondent at Caracas. All
the points in the original Judgment of
May 20 are confirmed by the present de
cision in addition to the annulment of the
Hamilton contract, in connection with
which damages for the government are
The asphalt concession -was originally
granted to Hamilton and was acquired
from him by the New York & Bernfudez
Company. The whole matter will be in
vestigated by Special Commissioner Cal
houn, who Is on his way to Venezuela. It
already has been stated that. If the court
should decide against the New York &
Bermudez Company, President Castro
would at once declare the concession for
feited. The proposition of this Govern
ment to arbitrate the asphalt question
was rejected, by President Castro andHhe
matter was. left open until Mr. Calhoun
was appointed to investigate the whole
Immediately following Secretary "Roofs
Induction into the State Department he
spent a day considering the case with So
licitor Penneld and Mr. Calhoun. There
Is little probability of any action being
taken by the United States Government
until the report of Mr. Calhoun has boon
considered by Mr. Root and the President.

ST. PAUL. Aug. 8. Commercial clubs
and merchants' and farmers organiza
tions along the lines of the Great
Northern and Northern Pacific railways
in Minnesota are asked to take action
to end the present telegraphers' strike
and the Governor of Minnosota has
been appealed to to use his good offices
in bringing about harmony. In order
that business interests may suffer no
The wheat harvest throughout South

The telegraphers at strike headquar
ters seem to attach importance to the
expected arrival of President J. J. Hill,
and in his official circular tonight Pres
ident Perham says:
"Mr. J. J. Hill is expected in St. PauI
-within a few days, and it is thought
that he will look Into the strike situa
tion, and possibly bring about a solu
tion of our difficulties."
A wreck on the Northern Pacific at
Brainerd today tied up that branch for
sevoral hours. A switch engine was
on the main line and a head-on col
lision occurred. In which both engines
were -wrecked and the conductor and
several passengers bruised, but no one
seriously hurt The strikers claim the
wreck was caused by a lack of tele

nearly all day. Linemen sent out are
reported to have found the wires
crossed near West Duluth. a fine wire
have been wrapped around the con
nections of all the wires on the pole.
A special from Aberdeen, S. D., says
the strike on that branch of the Great
Northern road Is over, all of the men
having returned to work, satisfied -with
a schedule presented to them last night.
More freight was reported moving to
day than has been moved for a -week
past. The restriction on perishable
foods was removed by both roads to
day, although bills for freight con
signed to some stations were' required
to be prepaid.
Mr. Perham denied that there has
been any serious deflection from the
ranks of the strikers, and says that
the companies are not securing suffi
cient operators to be of ' much service'
to them. He denied that there was a
possibility of a general sympathetic
strike on the part of the engineers and
trainmen, but said that on the Montana
division conductors and engineers had
refused to receive telephone or "flag."
CROSSED WIRES AT SPOKANE
Hooks Used to Worry Railroad Near
SPOKANE, Wash.. Aug. S. At three
points in the business center of Spokane
the wire wreckers have been operating
successfully The ground selected to dam
age the fystem was in the alley north of
the Northern Pacific tracks from Mill to
Madison streets, through which the heavy
western lead of wires runs. At three
points in this section the trouble-makers
created wire woes by throwing up pieces
of wire with hooks bent on the ends Into
the maze of telegraph wires. The hooks
caught and the wires were thus success
fully crossed. Trouble was first located
In the alley on Sunday, but on Sunday
afternoon the line was cleared. During the
night, however, the trick was repeated,
and yesterday morning crossed wiros were
again in evidence. For the second time
the hooked wires were removed. Other
wise lines in the city were not molested.
A. G. Avery. United States District At
torney, took the wire trouble question up
with the local officials or the Western
Union Company Sunday and yesterday,
transmitting a detailed report of condi
tions In this district to the Attorney-general.
Secret Service men will be utilized.
It is stated, to prevent further interfer
ence with wires, the Government's inter
vention being based on complaints as to
interruption of interstate commerce.

Moreover press dispatches today Indi

Otto Rockaway. of Auburn, was in Cen
tralla Tuesday as a walking delegate of
the Order of Railway Telegraphera Mr.
Rockaway's mission was to try to get

McCredle's bunch of erstwhile cripples,
reinforced by the return of Mitchell and
Schlafiy to thelrrcgularpositlons. trounced
the seraphic bunch from the land of
oranges in the opening contest of their
long stay on the home lot. When Eddie
Householder glommed Cravath's fly as the
curtain signal of the matinee the score
board read four for the home guard and
only two for the visitors.
Adelbert Jones, he of the crooked arm
and wrong-sided flipper, was delegated to
fling 'em for the locals, and the week's
rest must have done hlra a world of good
for the southpaw was all the candy and
had the Indian sign of the tribe of Ange
looloos under the leadership of Francis
Dillon. Jonesy was stingy with the swats
he allowed the visitors, for only six were
amassed during the engagement, al
though they scored two runs and for a
short period had the advantage of the
lead. Householder was the principal
offender of the Angels dignity, for the
local -slugger received a triple and a dou
ble, the last being the swat that broke
up the matinee In the eighth chapter.
Portland scored the first run In the
third when McLean led off with a cork
ing single to left. Runkle's attempted
sacrifice retired the big fellow at second
and gave Lou life at the Initial station.
While Jones was striking out Runkle stole
second and as Spies threw badly he went
all the way to third. from whence he
registered on a safe hit by Atz. Los
Angeles tied the affair up In the fifth, on
a single by Kitty Brashear, Cravaths
double, and Spies bunt on the hit-and-run
play. Brash registering on the put-out.
The visitors took the lead In the sev
enth when Cravath hit safely and was
chased all the way home on Artie Ross'
corking drive past Fleming, which netted
the fleet-footed Seraph three sacks, but he
was not satisfied with that and tried to
get four, but the splendid relay by Van

There were tall doings In the locals half
of the eighth when Hall got his.
Mike Mitchell, late of McCredle's hospital
corps, started the ruction with a two-sack
drive to center. Schlafiy dumped one
along the third-base line and was safe at
first for Tooth-Carpenter Smith tempor
arily forgot that there was a ball game
on at Recreation Park and both men
were safe. With Mitchell on third
Schlafiy stole second, and both scored
when Householder laced out his aforemen
tioned double. McLean's sacrifice and an
error on the part of Brashear gave the
third tally of the Inning. Jones issued
his only pass as a starter of the ninth,
but it benefited the visitors naught, for
ho closed thom out without permitting
anyone tq. amble beyond first. Sensational
catches by Flood and Cravath, and the
fielding of Atz were the noticable features
