Nicholas' Declines Post of Command
er of Russian Army.
St. Petersburg, Aug. 14. Grand
Duke Niobolaa Nicholaievitcb. the
Aeeoclated Frees is informed by a mem
ber of his entourage, has declined to
accept the post of commander in chief
of all the troops of the empire, "where
martial law exists," which was ten
dered to him Augugt 4.
Whether this was decided before or
after tbe attempt on the life of tbe
grand duke at Krasnoye8elo on August
10 is not known, but tbe ostensible
reason is that Grand Duke Nicbolan be
linvea that such a poet should not be
given to a grand duke, but merely a
military man. Uo advocates the ap
pointment of General Linievitvh, form
erly commadner in chief of the Man-
ckurlan army, but the emperor has not
finally decided the matter.
The activity of the Terrorists in tbe
provinces included, beside the usual
harvest of assassinations in Warsaw,
an attempt on the life of General Ka
ratelieff, cbief of the gendarmerie of
Samara province, and tbe wounding of
Captain of Police Ivanoff, of Libau, by

Expert Engineers Meet In Conference
at Boise September 3.
Washington, Aug. 14. Tbe fourth
annual conference of the engineers of
the United Btatta Reclamation service
will be held at Uoise, Idaho, Septem
ber 3 'to 8, the fourteenth irrigation
congress also being in session at Boise
at that time.
This conference is in continuation of
the general policy of holding annually
a meeting of the principal engineers of
tbe Reclamation service lor the purpose
of discussing matters of administration
and economics of work. Tbe bringing
together of these engineers and prom
nent citlsens of the West makes possi
ble an interchange of views and a dis
cussion of data leading to results of
very great vatae in the furtherance oi
the purposes of the reclamation act.
Each of the engineers, experts and
specialists in tbe various lines will sub
mit a brief paper embracing some point
of general interest, such as detailed
methods of cost, keeping, of designing,
construction, maintenance, or opera
tion. Owing to the advanced condition
of many of tne irrigation projects now
under construction it is expected tnat
this conference will be of more than
usual interest and importance.

Chicago, Aug. 14. Immunity to dif

Jaws in giving rebates to tbe Standard
Oil company is the price which the
Federal authorities are paying for tes
timony upon which they will try to se

When the oil combine prosecution
Was first launched, it was fotind hv tha

Limit to Stensland's Crimes Not Yet
Found by Inspectors.
Chicago, Aug. 14. Tbe belief tbat
large amounts of collateral given as se
curity for notes in the Milwaukee Ave
nue bank have been stolen practically
became a certainty last night, when a
note for $0,000, known to be genuine,
was found In Stensland's house at By
ron street and Lawndale avenue.
Search was made for the collateral se
curity, but it could not be found.
Tho dif co very opened tip a field for
almost unlimited speculation as to how
far tbe looting proct eded before Stone
land disappeared. If tbe real estate
and other securities in the bank- have
been stolen or are found to be worth
less, the amount of money left to pay
the depositors probably will be reduced
as low as 25 per cent.
Assistant State's Attorney Olson was
informed yesterday afternoon that Pres
ident Stensland has large land holdings
in Mexico, and that he may be in the
Southern republic now. The Informa
tion came in the shape of a letter from
an acquaintance of Stensland. Mr. Ol
son said tbat it will take only 24 hours
to run down tbe clew.

survey at Corbett tunnql and Shoshone
dam, on irrigation projects of Nortbern
Wyoming, consideration will be giveu
t) plans for completing those great con
tracts. The failure of the contractors
is being investigated. It is likely the
Geological survey will continue the
works with the equipment and supplies
seized, rather than let a new contract.

St. Paul, Aug. 14. A meeting of the

Calembian Army Officers Detected In
Plot to Secure Control.
Panama, Aug. 13. An alleged plot
oa the part of prominent Colombian
leaders to overthrow President Ama
dor's government and proclaim Colom
bia's sovereignity over Panama, again
has been frustrated throagh tbe activi
ty of the police and government autho
rities. Compromising decnaieats said
to give indubitable evidence of the plot
are reported to have been seised on two
of tbe Colombian conspirators. Two
Colombian generals said to be implicat
ed in the conspiracy were seised by the
pollee. President Amador has decided
that all tha ob$ox!oa& Colombia aJ4
to bo implicated in the plot shall be
expelled from Panama.
Generals Ruiz, Sandoval and Castillo
and Colonels Diaz, Gallado and Mes
quera and nine other Colombian offi
cials are reported to be tbe ringleaders
of the alleged plot. They had namer
one confederates. Their plan was to
accomplish ,a coup d'etat by which
President Amador woald be over
thrown, and then proclaim Colombia's
sovereigaty ever the ooantry that was
once a part of that nation.
An interview that tbe two generals
soaghtat President Aaa'rpalaoe
aroused tbe suspicion of the police.
Both generals were seized and compro
mising documents are paid tv have been
found in their possession. It WAS re
ported that one of the generals was
killed In resisting arrest, but this is
President Amador took tbe discovery
of the plot calmly. After tbe arrest of
tbe generals he attended a musical en

American Secretary's Visit Adversely-;
Criticised In Newspapers.
Berlin, Aug. 13. Germany is smart
ing under Secretary Root's gticeeemm in
South America. Under such title
"The American Peril in Brazil," and
"American Tricks," belligerent articles
bearing tbe hallmark of government in
spiration are appearing in the German
press. They attack the1 United States
for inducing Brazil to grant a preferen
tial tariff reduction of 20 per cent on
a variety of American goods.
The articles urge Germany immedi
ately to counteract this move, which is
asserted to be tbe first ntep in tbe anni
filiation of tbe kaiser's trade in Brazil.
It is suggested that Germany can offer
Brazil two attractive concessions in re
turn for a preferential tariff, namely,
increased consumption of coffee and in
creased immigration. It is asserted
that numbers of Japanese are settling
in Brazil as tbe pioneers of a Japanese
commercial invasion. Tbe fatherland,
therefore, will soon be confronted by
tho deadly rivalry of both tbo United
States and Japan.

General Inquiry Into MutinyjWlll Cause

1 St. Petersburg, Aug. 13. After the
preliminary investigations, the mili
tary and naval prosecutors have decid
ed to try by court martial no lees than
2,000 soldiers and sailors who partici
pated in the Cronetadt and Bveaborg
mutinies. The prospects of the men,
however, have been brightened by the
decision of tbe emperor to appoint two
extraordinary commissions, headed re
spectively by Generals Yodar and Gun
cheroff and Admirals Mollas and Mak
aroff, to investigate the causes of the
outbreaks at Cronstadt and Bveaborg,
and to determine tbe responsibility of
the demoralization. War Minister Ru
dlger and Minister of Marine Birileff
are said to be arriving at the Bame con
clusion as Admiral Skrydloff, the com
mander of the Black sea fleet, that the
officers are more to blame than the
men. The commissions will iBqaire
into the general conditions prevailing
in the navy and army, and it may re

the wholesale cashiering and retire
