ftT QUAKER CITY
Attempt Made to Re-Pad the
Voting Lists Just Purged
of False Names.
ASSESSORS ARE AFRAID
Despite Legal Opinion Furnished
Them, 'Many Do Not Put In tin
Appearance Jit the Poll
PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Sept 3. (Spe
cial.) Tho plan of the Penrose-Durham
organization to repad the purged voting
lists of the city -with 70,000 to 80,000 false
names to take the places of those that
have been stricken oft by the police can
vass, has proved a dismal failure. The
machine attempted to do this by Issuing
orders to the Assessors of the city to sit
on extra days last week and this -week, in
order that voters "who had been omitted
In the last assessment might be given an
opportunity to get on the ll6ts.
The Assessors received their notiflca
tlon from the city committee, and coupled
with It -was the opinion of Alexander
Simpson, an attorney, saying -they could
legally sit and could legally put on new
names presented by proxy. As a matter
of fact, the only days upon which it is
certain the Assessors can sit to take on
extra names will be September 6 and 6,
but the reform elements decided not to
try to stop the extra assessment, but to
prevent It being used for fraud. In con
sequence, a policeman in uniform was
detailed to watch every polling place in
the city on tho extra days selected by the
machine. This blocked the game.
For three hours last night nearly 2000
policemen braved the rain in vain waiting
at the 110 election divisions in the city.
In obedience to Director of Public Safety
Potter's orders, one and in most cases
two policemen were detailed for duty at
each polling place to watch for Assessors,
and if any appeared, to make note of
what they did. As on Friday night, few
Assessors put in an appearance. A great
many of them admit that they are afraid
to sit excopt on the two days specifically
required by law, September 5 and 6.
The great majority of Assessors con
trolled by the organization have made a
house-to-house canvass of their divisions
In order to be absolutely sure of every
name on their list.
BOMB EXPLODED AMONG MER
RXMAKERS AT BARCELONA.
Crowded Marine Parade Resembles
a Shambles After the Smoke
BARCELONA, Sept. 3. A bomb ex
ploded with terrific force this after
noon on the Marine Parade, which was
thronged with holiday-makers. A
panic ensued and the air was rent with
the shrieks and groans of the victims,
who numbered between 20 and 60, In
cluding one woman killed and five per
sons mortally wounded.
The bomb was conical in shape and
covered with cement. The purpetrator
of the outrage is unknown. One wit
ness stated this morning that a child
was seen to deposit a bomb at the foot
of a treq while another version Is that
the bomb was placed at the foot of the
tree this afternoon and the man who
was seen to place it there was Injured
by Its premature explosion.
After the explosion, Panama hats,
parasols and wearing" apparel were
found strewn about, and there were
pools of blood. The detonation was
heard throughout the city and the
force of tho explosion threw a coach
man from the seat of his carriage 50
yards away. The bomb was filled with
nails and scrap Iron.
A workman, covered with blood,
while running away from the scene,
was pursued by a mob, which pre
sumed hJm to be responsible for the
outrage and, being caught, was nearly
lynched. The man was taken to a
hospital, where he denied he had ex
ploded the bomb.
CLOSED AGAINST ISTHMUS

COLON, 6ept 8. The report by the
medical authorities of the Canal that the
death, August 23, of employes working
on the wharf at La Boca was due to bu
bonic plague has given rise to much dis
cussion. Jeromlmo Ossa, the Ecuadorian
Consul at Colon, declares officially that
tho report is falee and that there have
been no additional cases of bubonic plague
on the Isthmus.
The direct result of this reported pre
valence of the plague is that Central
American and Mexican ports refuse to
receive freight sent by way of the
Isthmus. Costa Rica and Nicaragua have
been altogether closed to Isthmian ports.
Several thousand tons of freight for Cen

SHAKE OFF THE GERMANS
Russian Writer Points to Hope In
PORTSMOUTH. Sept 2. Alexander
Brlantchlnonoff, correspondent of tho St
Petersburg Slovo. writing regarding the
future of Russia, says:
it is an axiom that a great country
cannot consider its frontiers as definitely
fixed until Its provinces have ohtalned
free and unobstructed access to the sea.
Germany has her ports on tho North
Sea; England the Atlantic Ocean; France
tne Aiianuc ana Mediterranean, while
the United States, flanked by two oceans,
is in a better position than any European
country, and for this reason must cer
tainly in the near future play a great role
In the world's politics.
"Russia, owing to this unfortunate and
regrettable war and to the conditions on
which peace have been obtained from
Japan, loses her absolute preponderance
in the Far East but it is to be hoped
that she will be wise enough to recom
mence the badly-begun adventure in Man
churia. She will have to be satisfied to
regain through commerce what she has
lost through the army. Vladivostok, froz
en for months every year, with Japanese
sentinels all. around her, cannot have a
sufficient political value to counterbalance
Japanese amblton, so that a frank un
derstanding between Japan and Russia is
necessary In order that the two countries
shall be sure of each other's good faith,
"The maintenance of Chinese integrity
certainly enters into this programme, us
it is only through peace being Insured In
the Far East that Russia can be free to
confine her activities to the European
stage, where her presence will soon be
come indispensable. No matter what the
future of the control of the gateways to
the Baltic may be. that sea will never be
for Russia anything else but a sea closed
by Ice. So It was natural for Russia
sooner or later to begin again her efforts
to gain an open port to the southward.
"To. obtain this object there are only
two ways, the Persian Gulf and the Bos
porus. The first Is the easier, Persia
being in a. state of disintegration, while
the Indian army, although quite capable
of defending India, is not in a position to
go to the defense of Persia. Germany
would certainly help Russia's schemes in
the Persian Gulf if it were left free in
the Bosporus, while it Russia tried to
reach the Bosporus she would have to
face German opposition and fight Turkey
which Is much stronger than Persia. Eng
land at most would remain passive.
"SU1I. the conquest of the Bosporus
would be tbs best Russia could do, as to
reach the Persian Gulf would nccesviuts
forcing away several thousand miles It
would not be dissimilar to the index
which took her to Port Arthur. She
would advance between two rivals. On
the other hand, if she directed her efforts
toward the Bosporus and offered some
facilities to England in the south of Per
sia, she could be tranquil.
"On the east she would be In position
to protect the Slav" cause against Ger
man influence, which is growing every
day. Onthe northern side she would
prevent Germany from being paramount
in Europe. Finally there is another rea
son for which it is time that Russia
should understand that she must rely on
England and not on Germany. Germany
Is the power of today and is putting for
ward every effort to make England the
power of yesterday and prevent the ris
ing of the power of tomorrow. Russia is
at the head of a great Slav confedera
tion. France, which Is undoubtedly the
power of yesterday, has realized that
and has entered Into an understanding
with England, while still an, ally of Rus
sia. "Alexander HI realized it when he
Joined hands with France, but after him
a clear political object on the part of
Russia was lost The duty of Russia, to
ward her Slav brothers was abandoned,
was forgotten, and the country, with eyes
closed, threw herself Into the hazardous
game, which naturally ended In a catas
trophe. If now Germany succeeds in
pushing Russia into the Persian Gulf, the
adventure will mean a quarrel with Eng-
lana. coolness lowara .trance and the
sacrifice of the Slavs of Austria and Tur
key on the altar of German ambition. It
will finally mean a new conflagration,
with Japan or England combined, with
Germany looking for her own Interests,
If, on the contrary, a quadruple under
standing could be reached between the
two dual alliances, France and Russia
on one side and England and Japan on
the other, having as an object the pro
tection of their Asiatic. African and Aus
tralian possession. Russia might easily
reach her object on the Bosporus and
support Italy and the Slavs when the In
evitable question of the Austrian succes
sion arises. In this way the threatening
imperialism of Germany would be
quenched and the European equilibrium
would be safeguarded, a thing which Is
necessary for the Influence with the Uni
ted States in the Pacific
"However, to be able to direct the Rus
s!an politics to these far distant but nat
ural ana possible aims, it Is necessary
nrst to clear the Russian Foreign Offlco
of German traditions and personnel and
have true diplomatists like WItte. and
not clock diplomatists, in charge of Rus
sla's foreign policy, all of which will be
more difficult than was the conclusion of
peace with Japan,"
