CZAR IS IN DANGER
'DON'T RUSH TO MINIDOKA LAND
Dynamite is Found Hidden in
SECRET POLICE WERE IN PLOT
Twelve Membors Arretted and Placed
In Dungeon Chance Leads to
Discovery of Explosive
8t. Petersburg, April 0. At Inst the
terrorist Imvo succeeded in penetrating
the cordon of guards nbout llio czur,
and in smuggling high explosives Into
tlio palaco Itself, and ns n result there
is a feeling of upprvhension among nil
of tlio high officials nnd the guards
about his majesty lmvo boon trebled.
Lato yesterday afternoon, ns the
M" I guard at the palace was being changed,
Licutonant Colonel Shlroupsky, who
was in command, noticed that one of
the Cossacks who had been posted at
the main door was wearing the sword
of an infantry officer, nnd not tho sabre
of a Cossack. He thereupon called a
corporal and placed the man under ar
rest, lie was at once searched and in
criminating documents were found on
Search of tho palace revealed two
packages of dynamite, placed against
the nuin door of the imperial suite, in
a dark corner where they were not
likoly to be noticed.
A searching inquiry was nt onco in
stituted, with the result that 12 secret
police agents were arrested as accom
. plies, and all were hurried to the Peter
nnd Paul fortress, where they were
Interviewed by General Trcpoft.
The fact that the terrorists have suc
ceeded in corrupting members of the
secret police and soldiers has caused
much alarm, and another attempt
against a high official is looked for.
Pumping Problem for Irrigation Has
Not Boon Solved.
Washington, April 7. Tho attention
of the director of the geological sur
vey has been called to tho fact that n
misapprehension exists on tho part of
certain citltens of Idaho iih to tho plans
of tho reclamation service In regard to
somo important details relating to tho
Minidoka project. This misunder
standing has arisen, It is believed, by
reason of tho efforts of many settlors to
anticipate tho pUus of the engineers
and secure choice holdings of land.
Tho government fiom the llrst has
warned intending settlers to go slow In
making entries on tho lauds embraced
in this project, and has called particu
lar attention to tho fact that the plnns
for irrigation, especially thoso involv
ing the pumping plant, were merely
tentative, and am Id not Ik worked out
as quickly as those for tho gravity sys
tem. While nothing has arisen to pre
vont the ultimate development of a
pumping plant, so many delicate en
gineering features are involved tlmt
careful consideration must bo given to
these before any detlulte conclusions
nre reached or the llnat plans are ap
proved. Thus, apparently, while no reason
exists for believing tlmt the pumping
features of the Minidoka project will
not ultimately bo utilized, the engineers
very wisely have concluded to give this
question more study and consideration
In-fore recommending it for construction.

PRICE PAID FOR CATTLE.
Njxt Question for Consideration Be
fore Beef Trust Grand Jury.
Chicago, April 0. Prices paid for
livestock by the packers, alleged re
bates granted tho nickers by the rail
roads for handling the same and the
private accounts of some of the packing
concerns are to be closely inquired into
within the next few days by the Feder
al grand jury which is investigating
the business affairs of the beef trust.
Another phase of the question of the al
leged combination of some of the pack
ers in violation of the Sherman anti
trust law and Judge Grosscup'a injunc
tion which is to bo inquired into is the
price paid by wholesale dealers to the
puckers for meats.
Witnesses who can give the jurors
detailed and accurate information along
these lines have been subpoenaed and
appeared at the investigation today.
Some of these witnesses testified and,
although they refused to make public
what they told the jury, it is said a
large amount of data valuable to the
government was secured from them.
More complaints of interference with
the witnesses reached United States
Attorney ISethea and Captain Porter, of
the secret service, during the day. The
session today was devoted to the exam
ination of men employed at the Chi
cago stockyards and packing houses.
With the exception of the, Sunday
adjournments, the jury, It is said, will
now proceed steadily to the end of the
inquiry. The United States attorney
has announced that May 15 will prob
ably see the close.
It is said tho hearing of the plea and
demurrer of Thomas J. Connors, the
indicted superintendent of tho Annour
company, will be disposed of before
the jury presents other true bills in
volving persons on charges of tamper
ing with witnesses.
Murder and Pillage Mark Their Trail
Kl Paso, Tex., April 0. John St.
Clair, a well known prospector, wltoic
statements are considered reliable, has
returned from the Ynqul country neat
Urvs, Sonora, and reports that tho In
dians are still on the warpath. He
says that Malpuchc, tho old chief, Is
at the head of a kind of over 60 and is
devastating the whole country, mur
dering, pillaging and burning. Grain
and cotton ranches are being abandoned
and the people are going into the towns
The whole country is in a state of
panic. Mail routes between the small
towns have been abandoned and pro
visions are getting scarce. Although
the country is overrun with soldiers,
he says, the Indians ate fearless and
continue their depredations. St. Chili
does not believe it is safe for Americans
to go into the Yaqui country at this
time, as the Yaquls are very hostile to
While going from Urea to his camp
in the mountains, St. Clair heard tiring
and ran into what had been an Indian
ambuscade. He found two dead Mex
icans who had been killed only a few
minutes before hu reached the place.
The Ysquis are armed with rifles nnd
are well supplied with cartridges, St.
Cold Rains Have Damaged Prunes,
but Farmers are Satisfied,
Albany Linn county people nre
watching the weatherman closely these
days, nnil' yearning for n "fair day"
Hug. This Is particularly true of fruit
growers, for tho recent cold rains nre
menace to the fruit crop.
As it is, somo injury has been report
ed. A prominent farmer 'and fruit
grower of Linn county states that ho is
of the opinion that cherries nnd prunso
nre somewhat Injured already, particu
larly cherries. Tho cherry trees were
loaded with blossoms nt the end of tho
warm spring weather that marked the
closing days of February nnd tho tlrst
half of March, nnd tho ruin caught
them at tho tenderest age. Then n
couple of light frosts last week added
to the danger.
Prunes were not brought out so much
ns cherries by tho premature advent of
spring, and may possibly escape injury.
Although the trees seemed to be in
blossom nt tho egiunlug of tho ruins,
they were in reality not generally In
full bloom, but were loaded with buds
that were just ready to burst but had
not yet excised the tender inner jKirt
to the weather. Under these circum
stances it is believed the damage will
b nominal, if good weather comes
soon. However, it would not take
many days of chilling rains and winds
to ilo irreparable damage. It has bccii'
stated that the prune trees were giving
evidence of such a heavy crop that it
would really lw letter for the fruit If
some of tho embryo prunes were killed
by the cold.
Other branches of farming nre faring
well. An easy winter and early spring
places stock in excellent condition, and
every class of stock looks well. Hairy
farmers are milking more cows, with
better results than in years before nt
this season of the year. Many farmers
will finish the winter in much better
shape than was anticipated after the
poor crops of last year.
Wheat is looking tine, and, tarring
some unforeseen freak of nature to de
stroy the present bright prospects, the
wheat yield of the valley will lie far
above the nverage. Fall sown whiMt
can n I most lie seen to grow now, and
many farmers are preparing to put all
their remaining acreage in spring grain.
Albany Mill May Be Rebuilt.
Albany President Charie Coopey
and Secretary II. M Grant, of tho Ran
nockburn Woolen Mills company, who
have been in Albany looking after their
property, which was recently almost
totally destroyed by (Ire, statu that it
is possible the mill will Ih rebuilt.
The brick walls art) part of them stand
ing nnd in good shape, nnd some of tho
machinery can bo saved. The big boll
er in the engine room was not damaged,
and altogether there is quite a nucleus
around which to start a new mill. The
company had a great deal of business
ahead when the fire occurred.
FRAUD ON STATE.
Marlon County Grand Jury Will Inves
tigate Illegal Transactions.
Salem -Though tho statutes govern
ing the salo of state lands lmvo been
violated ever since they wero enncted,
tho Investigation to bo imulo by tho
Mnrion county grand jury this week
will be the tltst attempt that has ever
been iimdo to punish infraction of these
laws. Several hundred thousand acres
of hind have been iHiught illegally, and
the statu school fund has been de
spoiled of several hundred tliourniid
dollars, but usually punishment of tho
offense has been barred by the statute
of limitation before it was diseovoied,
or, tho state having received tho legal
price for the laud sold, no one (eels in
terested enough to start an investiga
tion. Tho offense which the grand
Jury will Investigate this week Is of re
cent date, and tho (nets are so well
known that the transactions can
scarcely bo overlooked.
ItccmiKO tho state in every instance
receives the price required by law, and
is not directly robbed, it has hin eosy
to let tho Infractions of law pi with
scarce a tmssing notice. Hut liullrcetlv
tho state has been nibbed and vigorous
notion at the proper time would not
only linvo landed tho offender In pris
on, but saved many thousands of dol
lars for the school fund. It is not
through tho ordinary wiles of school
laud that the steals have taken place,
for in nil such eni the state has re
ceived all the laud is worth. It is
through the lieu hind oHrutlous tlmt
tho manipulator of public hunts have
made their fortunes ut tho e.xcuo of
the school fund.

Lahore, British India, April 7. As
tho particulars filter in from the outly
