8T. PETERSBURG, June 29. An of
ficial denial la given to the report that
the emperor and court are leaving Peter
hof and returning to Tsarskoe Selo, owing
to the discovery of a revolutionary plot
among the palace servants. The report
Is officially accounted for by rumors fol
lowing the retirement of General Flesko, the
commandent at Peterbof. and the appoint
ment of Colonel Lermentoff, comnianQt-r of
the Imperial regiment of Uhlans as lits
aucceasor. The former's retirement is
atatt-d to be due purely to private con
siderations, but several officers of Ills staff
are indignant at ths promotion of Colonel
Lerrrentoff over their heads and have
asked to be relieved.. This gave riae to the
report of the discovery of a revolutionary
While the official explanations are re
garded with suspicion, as it Is beyond
question that the terrorists and revolu
tionists are constantly attempting to gain
a foothold In the palace, there is no cause
to doubt the truth of the official statement
that ths court hss no Intention of returning-
to Tsarako Selo this summer.
Peterhof In reality Is much eater from
the Imperial family than Tsarskos Selo,
being located on a gulf, enabling the im
perial yacht to be moored at a wharf 200
yardn from ths palace, always avalllabla
to convey the emperor and his family to
Finland, or some other place of security.
There la an elaborate system of wlreleas
telegraphy connecting the palace at Peter
hof with ths fortreasees of CronsUult.

side world as he was during the operators'
strike last fall. Since the revelations that
dlMoyalty had Invaded even "his majesty's
tfwjjreglment of the guards It Is assarted
he-.rttf nothing would be surprising.
Qeneral Trepnff, commander "of the palace,
who Is personally charged with protecting
the safety of the emperor's person, has
redoubled his precautions.
The garrison at . Peterhof - has been
strengthened by a guard of Clroassans and
the 'detachment of . Cossacks . about the
palace has been doubled. The servants at
tne palace, as heretofore, are the emperor's
faithful Nameluke and Tartars, soma of
whom do not speak the Russian language
The Russian servants are confined for ths
tih.e being to tried lackeys and valets, but
among these the terrorists have frequently
boasted that they have spies. .Newsboys
carrying sacks are forbidden to enter the
grounds of ths old palace, to which tha
public la admitted, and no one Is allowed
within the walls surrounding the grounds
of tha small palace where the imperial
family resides without a permit. Secret
police by the hundreds. In civilian clothes
throng tha parks and streets. The em
peror never drives out beyond the grounds
of the small palace and the members ot
the court are practically prisoners within
Its wails. The principal amuaement .ia
tennis, but all the cuatomary gaiety of
court life has vanished.

her they regretted her early departure snd
hoped she would retain for England the
kindly feeling and Interest which England
would retain for her.
Mr. Longworth replied, thanking the
American women for their courtesy snd

himself and his wife at the kindness they
had met with on every hand.
Iiord Curzon. speaking for the guests,
said It had been a great pleasure for them
to meet the daughter of the greatest states
man of the day, not only because she Is
the daughter of the president, but because
of herself. President Roosevelt was mak
ing an enduring mark on the history of
his times, but, above all, the British had to
thank him for cementing the good rela

for Tea Days.
WASHINGTON, Juns 2.-6eeretary-Root
will accept the hospitality of Chils and
make part of his trip along the west coast
of South America In a Chilean warship.
The United States cruiser Charleston, on
which Secretary Root will sail for South
America, is too large a craft to work ita
way along ths Inside passage from the
strait of Magellan to Valparaiso, Chile, and
consequently the American secretary of
State and his party will probably leave the
Charleston at Sandy Point lh the strait of
Magellan and go. aboard a Chlltan man-of-war
which can work Its way along between
the ialands of the nest coast and the main
land, thus shortening the trip by several
hundred miles and enabling Mr. Root to
remain longer In Chile.
Secretary Root will probably be in Rio
Janeiro for about ten days. His stops on
the west coast of South America will be at
Valparaiso, Chile, Callao, Peru, and Guaya
quil, Ecuador. From Valparaiso he will
Journey by rail to Bantlago, the capital ot
Chile. He will also take the rail trip from
Callao to Lima, the Peruvian capltol. The
distance from Guayaquil to Quito, the capi
tal of Ecuador, ia so great that Mr. Root
probably will be unable to make the trip.
After crossing the Isthmus of Panama
Mr. Root will go to Cartagena, Colombia,
to pay his respects to that government.
The Colombian secretary of state will
doubtless be at Cartagena to greet Mr.

a specialist in this line that he has twice

WASHINGTON, June 2P. The president
tonight at 11 : Ifi signed the railroad rate
bill. He also signed the Immigration Mil
snd the hill for the construction of a lock
canal across the istnmus of Panama.
WASHINGTON. June . The senate de
voted most of Its time today to, considera
tion of conference reports. Including the
reports of the railroad rate bill, the pure
food bill and the meat Insnectloji provision
of the agricultural hill. All were adopted
during the day's session.
The principal controversy waa over the
rate bill when Senators Bailey and Tillman
had a heated colloquy, the mora notable be
cause of the warm friendship existing be
tween' the two senators. The controversy
was on the subject of railroad lawyers snd
Mr. Ilalley expressed strong disapproval
of the South Carolina senator's views on
that subject. There was also much dis
cussion of the meat Inspection provision.
A number of senators expressed themselves
aa willing only to accept the house provi
sion because it was attached to an appro
priation bill and a deadlock would cauae
the failure of the supply bill.
Ttllmaa Opens Debate.
Senator Tillman called up the ennferenco
report on the railroad rate legislation and
began his attack upon the pipe line amend
ment aa being In the interest of the Stand
ard Oil company.
"About the time the Allison amendments
were incubating," lie said, "there was s
great furore about the Garfield report on
the Standard till ornpany and we wero
told that the exposures of its crimes would
help the vote on the rate bill and undr
the cover of this dust the president re
tired from his advsnred position on rail
road legislation and accepted the Alllso.t
provision. . There the big stick and (ne
pitchfork, which had been in alliance,
found themaelvea separated and the pitch
fork, while doing duty on the firing lire,
looked around only to see tha tall of fit
aasociate hustling to the rearsliding to
wards the Allison base, to uae a bass ball
phrase. The big stick wss rushing In on
all -four's target between Father Allison,
legs." . .
He had no fsult to find, hs added, ex
cept that he considered the president hid
been Inconsistent in not coming to the as
sistance of the senate conferees. He con
sidered it a little remarkable that Just
when he might do something to thwsrt
the policy of this gigantic monopoly he Is
aa mum aa a niouse, except that there is
now another hurrah about what the prssl
dent Is going to do to the Standard OH In
the way of suits."
Big Mca I'nmolested.
He added that notwithstanding the
prosecution has been decided upon we are
carefully told In advance that the hlg'l
officials, such as Rockefeller, Rogers and
Arrhbold, are not to be molested.
He then commented upon the employment
of District Attorney Morrison of Illinois as
special counsel tn this case, saying that hs
had demonstrated "how not to do It" lu ths
Waters esse. "If," he added, "they wanted
an expert In that line he is as good as
could be found.
In the same connection he said that h
had beeh Informed that Hon. Frank Monet t,
"the most competent of all attorneys, Is lo
lose his Job." He sdded: "So It goes, ths
dear people are bumbooiled every day. but
the hurrah goes on. The president assures
us that the crimes of the Standard Oil
company are to be punished, but when It
comes to a real fight and when there Is sn
opportunity to do so he alts dumb snd al
lows the house conferees to compel tbe sen
ate conferees to yield to the demands uf
the Standard Oil company."
Senators Cullom and Hopkins defended
Mr. Morrison as a painstaking .and dill
gent attorney and Senator Foraker asked
for the source of the South Carolina sena
tor's lnormatlon concerning ths probable
retirement of Mr. Monett. This. Mr. Till
man said, hs was not at liberty to give.
Senator McCumber protested against the
elimination of the provision of ths paas
amendment permitting tha free transpor
tation of farm laborers. Senators Dolllver
and Tillman agreed In assuring him that
they could bs carried as at present as
"harvest excursionists," to which ths North
Dakota senator replied that if that was
trus the bill is not worth ths paper It la
Elklns Defends Report.
Senator KJklne defended the conference
report, on the commodity amendment, say
ing that ss originally adopted ths pro
vision meant a confiscation of the property
of the Independent oil operatora. He also
took exception to Mr. Tillman's criticisms,
saying In reply thai ha, Mr. IClklns, Is ss
free from the Influence of Standard Oil
aa any member could be. He also declared
that the prealdent needs no defense and
he charged that the South Carolina sena
tor was aggrieved because the president
did not agree with him. Hs declared that
the effect of the Tillman policy would ba
to break down the Independent companlea
' and said apparently that was what Mr.
Tillman was trying to du. He admonished
I the South Carolinian that even If he de-
sired to injure the Standard Oil company
he should not at the asms ttma destroy
j the business of thousands of others. He
said the Standard Oil company la able to
take car of Itself and to the latter point
Senator Bailey replied that "whether that
company needa help or not it gets It. In
a colloquy between Senators Klklns and
Tillman relative to what th former knew
of Weat Virginia Mr. Tillman aald: "Wnut
you want In Weat Virginia Is otes." tj
which Mr. Elklns retorted: "You are hunt
ing votes In South Carolina yourself."
. Mr. Paly announced hla Intention to vnt
for the report, but confessed that neither
of the new provisions wss to his liking.
