.T. PETERSBURG, April 18. -Gradually
uiany Interesting details surrounding the
recent arrest of a band of about a dozen
terrorists are, leaking out. The capture,
which Is regarded by the authorities as
being of immense Importance, was accom
plished by Kashovlsky, the Russian
Lecoqul, who was dismissed from the se
cret police several years ago on account
of his connection with Fhllllppe, the spir
itualist, who created such a stir at court
several years ago and who, too, went to
I'arls to live.

pointment as governor general of 6t.

Vhlch had been operating here under the
direction of the central organization which
apparently has its headquarters In Switzer
land. Alfred Henry McCullotigh the man
killed March 11 by the accidental explosion
of a bomb at the Hotel Bristol, whose real
name was Bauman, was one of the chiefs
of the terrorists having charge of the
manufacture of bombs and Kaleieff, who
killed Grand Duke Serglus, also belonged
to the came group.
After Bauman'i death Kalcleft's duties
evolved upon Mile Leontieff, daughter of
General Leontleff, who recently was ap
pointed governor of Yakutsk, Eastern
eiueria. Mile LeontlenT recently became a
convert to terrorism during her stay at
Lucerne, Switzerland. Kaleleff's identity
,was established through the discovery of
a photograph belonging to Savlnkoff, who
has been his comrade, both at the unl'
ersity and In exile.
Savinkon la at Large.
When Kaleieff was charged with his
Identity he admitted it, saying immedi
"Savlnkoff has been arrested."
The police later thought they had cap
tured Savlnkoff, and so announced publicly,
but it turns out that the man held under
that name was another and that Savlnkoff
to whom Kaleieff evidently had confided
, tils intention of killing Grand Duke Sur
plus Is still safe abroad.
Among the others captured was Madame
Jvs.iovskai, a sister-in-law of Korolenko,
' the Russian author. She was Involved In
the Nihilist plot to assassinate Emperor
. Alexander II for which she was sentenced
'. to fifteen years In Siberia, but at the end
of seven years she escaped to America.
Perhaps the most romantic feature is
the fact that Mile Leontieff converted two
Xileces of Governor General Trcpoff, Mile
Trepoff and Princess DenlshenV to the
doctrine of assassination and that after
the arrest of her mentor Mile Trepoff
actually attempted the life of her uncle,
firing two shots at him, both of which
missed. , Thereupon the two girls became
panic stricken and attempted suicide, Mile
Trepoff throwing herself under a train
and Princess Denlsheff shooting herself.
Neither of them succeeded In killing her
self. The family has since tried to make
It appear that the girls' acts were the
result of a mutual pact for self destruction,

officer of the guards.

ASSIMF.S INTERNATIONAL PHASE
Strike of Workmen at LlmoKes Af

PARIS, April 18. The strike riots at
Limoges are developing international
features, as the Havlland factory, em
ploying 6,000 persons, of which Theodore
and Charles Havlland, Americans, are the
proprietors, is the center of the disorder.
Ambassador Porter Is taking active steps
to Insure the protection of American In
terests against violence and to secure an
adjustment between the proprietors of the
factory and the workmen. He conferred
with Foreign Minister Delcasse today con
cerning the precautionary measures which
the government Is taking. The situation
is complicated by strong socialist opposi
tion to the government sending troops to
Limoges. At M. Delcnsso's request Gen
eral Porter used his good offices with the
Messrs. Haviland. The latter, however,
maintained that the workmen were not
Justified in demanding the discharge of
the foreman of the factory and therefore

In the meantime further riotous scenes
led to the massing of large forces of cav

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo., April 18.
President Rooaevelt has killed a bear and
a bob cat. He is satisfied with his hunt
for the biggest game the Rockies afford.
If he gets one more bear or several he
will be better pleased, but to quote his
own words: "I got what I was after.
It was bully sport and I hope It keeps up."
This Is the story brought to Secretary
Loeb tonight by Elmer Chapman, a cour
ier with a close mouth, who was chosen to
bear messages between the president and
the temporary seat of government at the
Hotel Colorado In this city.
Courier Brings Bear skin.
While he came through Newcastle, where
are camped numerous correspondents of
newspapers, he brought his story intact.
There was no leakage and all the informa
tion obtainable at that place was derived
from a view of a close'y rolled fresh bear
skin which Chapman transferred from his
saddle to the cur at the railway station.
"Is that all you've got?" he was asked.
"Isn't that enough?" he replied.
This was about the substance of the
conversation In which Chapman partici
pated at Newcastle. He was chosen be
cause he knows when not to talk. Before
starting on his hunt the president said he
did not want any newspaper men to follow
him. TO three correspondents representing
press associations, who accompanied him
from Washington, the president said: "You
stick by Loeb and I will help you all I can.
I cannot send out a messenger every day,
but as soon as there la anything worth
telling you shall have it."
The courier got through Newcastle with
out talking and the president made good to
those who compiled with his wishes.
Chapman Admires President.
But if the courier was reticent at New
castle, he was different when his Journey
was at an end and Secretary Loeb had re
moved the Injunction of secrecy. His eyes
kindled with a fire that told his admira
tion for the president's prowess as a
hunter more than did the words at his
command. The expression the hardy
mountaineer Injected Into his story was:
"Say, fellows, he's a beaut and no mis
take. The, way he scents game would
make you think he was born in the moun
tains and had never left them. Say, now,

but Is beginning to need rain in portions uf
Kansas and Michigan.
Very slow progress was muds with spring
wheat seeding over the northern portion
of the spring wheat region, as this work
could b prosecuted only in the afternoon,
on uecount of th low temperatures. The
early sown spring wheat does not appear
to have sustained Injury from recent cold,
except In Nebraska, where some fields were
slightly damaged. Oat seeding was also
delayed In the Dakutas. Minnesota, Lake
region and portions of the Middle Atlantic
states. While growth of the early sown
has been checked and some Injury sus
tained in Nebraska the general situation
respecting this crop continues promising.
While fruit must necessarily have sus
tained injury from the severe cold in the
latter part of the week in central and
southern districts it is probable that In the
more northerly sections, to the eastward
of the Mississippi river, tho damage has
been less serious. In New England and

"Frotrsts," tho paper asserts, "are un

The Nlchl Nlchl today says France hos

Russian squadron a secret and adds that
France does not observe the twenty-four-hour
rule. But, the Nlchl Nlchl con
tinues, the spirit of neutrality affords no
excuse for extending mleh hospitality to
a belligerent squadron, and it expresses
the hope that France will take steps to

PARIS, April 18 (3:06 p. m.) The French
government has taken every precaution
to secure the .observance of neutrality In
French waters in Indo-Chlna. ' To this
end Instructions have been sent to M.
Beau, governor general of Indo-Chlna,
again calling his attention to the regula
tions concerning tho observance of neu
trality, issued at the outset of the war.
These are Identical with the neutrality
rules In force during the Spanish-American
war. It Is believed that Admiral De Jon
quleres, commander of the French naval
forces at Saigon, In proceeding to Kam
ranh bay, where part of the Russian sec
ond Pacific squadron baa been seen, Is
following the governor general's Instruc
tions. No Olfirlul Information.

Concerning the statement In the Asso

day, that the international status of the
waters of Kamranh "bay might determine
the question of Admiral Togo's attacking
the Russiuns there, the official view pre
vails here that there are no international
obstacles to prevent the Japanese adopting
such tactics as their naval situation re
quires. ToKo Will Be Cautloaa.
LONDON, April 18 Baron Hayashl, ths
Japanese minister to Great Britain, ex
pressed the opinion to the Associated Press
today that Admiral Togo would not give
battle to Admiral Kojestvensky with his
entire squadron, but would continue the
cautious tactics which characterised hla
attacks on the Port Arthur squadron, not
because he feured defeat, but owing to
liln fli.Hlre to Inflict the vronlMit immint
of damage on the Russians with the least
1 loss to himself. While confident of his abil
j ity to accomplish the total destruction of
I the Russian squadron in a big battle there
' is the danger of Togo losing one or two
of his big ships.
Rusalnna still In Kamranh Bay.
The latest news from the far rust shows
that certainly a portion of the Russian
second Pacific squadron was still coaling
at Kamranh bay Saturday morning, April
13. This news was brought to Singapore
by the British steamer Hul Sang and to
Hong Kong by the French steamer Phu
yen. The former merely reports passing
the Russiun fchlps ut 11 o'clock Ih the
morning. The Phu-yen's officers saw
twenty vessels coaling In the bay snd It Is
suspected that the remainder ft the fleet
was Inside the harbor. According to the
Dally Mail's correspondent at Singapore,
the Sul Sang, which was not molested by
the Russians, sighted a big French war
ship two hours later, fourteen miles to
the southward, evidently proceeding to
Outside Three-Mile Limit.
The piece-nieul character of the news
excludes tho possibility of any accurate
estimate of tne movements of Vice Ad
miral Rojrstvcnsky's squadron, but It
would s-em to show that the vice admiral
has divided his forces, a portion of which
went northward before Saturday. What
has happened since then Is impossible to
say, and there Is no clear evidence even
that the Russians have been within the
three-mile limit, which would bring them,
according to intei national regulations,
Into Infringement of French neutrality.
The fact that they werw visible to passing
shlpa would npprar to chow that they
wire outside the limit.
The correspondent at Toklo of the Dally
Teiegraph says he has no hesitation In de
clining thut should occasion arise and her
pieliinln.iry protests bo ignored, Japan
will -regard any a nr horn go occupied by the
Russian fleet as its naval base and deal
with the situation accordingly.
