ST. PETERSBURG, Russia, Nov. 9.
What is believed to have been a care
fully conceived plot to take the life of
Emperor Nicholas while he was on the
way from Peterhof to his Winter palace
st Tsarskoe-Selo today was frustrated by
the vigilance of the guards. Early this
morning a guard discovered six men try
ing to cut the wire of a semaphore signal
at Ligovo station, at a junction of the
railroad from Peterhof to Tsarskoe-Selo.
The guard was fired upon and wounded.
Several officers and guards at the station
came to his relief and several volleys
were exchanged between the- outlaws and
the soldiers, the former escaping without
The police profess to be unable to un
derstand the attempt to cut the sema
phore, as such an act could hardly work
any harm to the Imperial train, which
was due to puss, a few hours later. It is
generally believed, however, that the out
laws intended to prevent the use of the
signal with the object of bringing the
train to a stop at that point. No ar
rests have been made.

Kentucky is famous all over the
