Chicago, Sept. 18 Members of the
Interstate Commerce Commission
yesterday reopened . the old Peavey
elevator dispute between the various
lawyers representing the parties to
the suit relative to a supposed agree
ment for a continuance.
The dispute ended abruptly after
President A. B. Stlckuey of the Chi
cago Oreat . Western Railroad de
clared that he most vigorously pro
tested against any further delay in
the hearing. President Stickney la
one of the petitioners for the re
opening of the case, which involves
the Union Pacific Railroad Company,
the Peavey Elevator 1 Company and
the Trans-Mississippi Elevator Com
pany. One of the chief allegations
in the case is that the railroad com
pany granted rebates to the Peavey
Elevator Company and gave it a mo
nopoly of the grain along the line.
Besides the Chicago Great Western
Railroad the petitioners are the Chi
cago, Burlington & Qulncy and the
Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe rail
roads. The rebating is said to have
been done at Omaha and Kansas
LAW IS AGAINST NEW SPELLING
Statute of Congress Fixes Webster's
Dictionary as Standard.
Washington, Sept. 18. It was an
awful jolt on the President's spelling
reform order ( when some reckless
lawyer of Washington dug up an old
statute of Congress fixing Webster's
dictionary as the standard and au
thority for spelling in all public doc
uments. Webster lived before the
day of Carnegie and followed the
good old orthodox method of spell
ing. Doubtless Congress overstepped
its constitutional' authority when 1
undertook to fix a standard. The
question Is, What will the Superin
tendent of Public Printing do? Will
he obey the law of Congress or yield
to the Instructions ot the President?

GRAND DUKES PANIC-STRICKEN
BY SCDDEN DEATH OF
Fear of Assassination Is Everywhere;
New Attempts of Terrorists, Who
Cluiin They Killed Trepoff.
St. Petersburg, Sept. 18. The
Grand Dukes are in a panic. The
death of General Trepoff, which is
now generally believed to have been
due to poison, has put the entire
royal family In such a state of alarm
that the members of it are literally
falling over each other getting out
of this city. The Grand Dukes left
at midnight last night for the west
and more are preparing to go. Meet
of them will se .tie down in Paris for
a time at least.
Nor is the panic confined by any
means to the royal family. Dozens
of the reactionary clique in the pal
ace at Peteroff are packing up for
trips abroad. They are evidently pre
pared for a long exile, as they are
putting their estates In the hands of
permanent agents and are sending
their valuables ahead of them.
The feeling of terror was added
to when revolutionists tried in War
saw to assassinate General Dorsze
iwski, president of the courtmartial
board. There was but one shot fired,
but the bullet struck the general in
the thigh. His wound is serious
but not necessarily fatal. The would
be assassin escaped.
Trepoff was recognized as the
strong man of Russia and even his
enemies respected his courage and
iron will. Now that he is gone there,
eeems to be no one in the empire to
fill his plaee. There is a consequent
feeling of helplessness on the part
of the court clique.
The Terrorists are declaring that
they will be ready in a few days
to start a new series of assassinations
and that some ot the most prominent
men ot the empire will be among the
first victims. They are boasting,
too, ot the way in which Trepoff was
disposed of. They ridicule the
statement of the attending physicians
that the General died a natural

security of life and property In the
Baltic proviuces, which culminated
last Saturday in the murder of Herr
Bush, a rich German manufacturer
and the leader of the Germany colony
at Riga, has led the German Embassy
here again to make energetic repre
sentations to the Foreign Office con
cerning the ailrptlon of measures for
the protection of German subjects.
Bush was killed by agents of the
revolutionary organization engaged
in levying tribute.
Dr. Von Mlquel, First Secretary of
the German Embassy, called today at
the Foreign Office and presented the
report ot the German Consul at Riga

was struck down In his own factory.
He called attention to the length of
time the reign of terror has lasted.
Although the armed revolt was
crushed and the country reconquered
by the forces under General Orloff
last winter, robberies' and murders
have continued unchecked for over
a year a'nd a half.
There are 5,000 German subjects
living at Riga. Tho American Consul
at Riga has not joined In this de
mand for protection. There are scar
cely any Americans there.
At Odessa the conditions are al
most as bad as In the Baltic prov
inces, the Embassies have been in
formed that guards have been fur
nished for the Consulates and the
residences of the various Consuls.
The Ministers of the Interior, Jus
tice and War have sent commission
ers to investigate the recent massa
cre at Siedlce. The commissioners
have been instructed to Investigate
specially the charges of unrestrained
looting and killing by soldiers and to
Hi the responsibility.
Hunter Crushed to Death by near.
The Dalles (Or.). Sept. 17 Billy
Fritz, a well-known character around
Trout Lake, met deatb while bear
hunting last night. He disappeared
Into the woods, and it is supposed
that not being able to see the bear
after he got him up a tree, built a
fire and went to sleep, intending to
kill his game In the morning. The
fire crept up the tree to a
large limb directly over where Frltt
was asleep, and on which the bear
was lodging. During the night the
limb burned in two and the bear fell
on Frits, cruslng out his life. His
body was found this morning with
the burned limb by his side.
