While Police Captain Constantino!! was standing in Marszalkowska street, Warsaw, at 7 o'clock last evening with two policemen and four soldiers a young man\ threw a bomb into the group. The explosion of the bomb lit- erally tore Captain Constantiuoff to pieces and severely wounded a police- man and six other persons. The assas- sin tried to escape, and, firing his re- volver, wounded a soldier. The other soldiers -replied-with-a-3 r olley r _-killlng the assassin and two other persona. The soldiers then attacked the people r wl^harl~gathe^d-wrrti^lfetr : bay61ie^ and \the 7 \butts of tlTeirgTins, woufJdjng eleven persons, inakingra total of four killed and nineteen wounded. \. The terrorists had sought Captain Constantinoff's life since May day of last year, when he ordered the-soldiers to- fire,- on—a -procession—of—-socialists,- causing the death of thirty persons. Another incipient radical revolt with which it is apparent the Consti- tutional Democratic majority must continually contend broke out in. the lower house of parliament when Labor members introduced resolutions for the immediate - submission to Emperor Nicholas by telegraph of a demand that amnesty \be proclaimed at once. This threatened to sweep the house, but the Constitutional Democrats by sharp politics managed to sidetrack the matter until after the selection of a commission, which, according to Rus- sian procedure, occupied several hours, \and then~were\ able^txrdefeatrit: explosion at 4:30 o'clock In the morn- ing of a large amount of black and smokeless powder in four magazines situated in the suburbs of the eastern section of this city caused thousands of dollars' worth of damage about the city, shook the earth within a radius of more than thirty mlleB and so resem- bied-an earthquake as tu strike~terror to the hearts of the entire population. There were two diBtinct explosions, with a lapse of half a minute between. Chimneys were knocked off houses, glass was broken in hundreds of build- ings, and In the business section of the city big plate glass windows were shat- tered. •. -~ - After making an investigation Super- intendent Thorpe said: \I estimate that 6.000 pounds of powder were exploded in all, but have absolutely no knowl- edge as to the cause .of the explosion.

In the senate on Saturday party lead- ers threw off all restraint and gave fuR^^nt-te^thelr^ffl+i , ftiiHHe4ed-4fld4g-iia- tlon, indulging in a flood of abuse and invective against the president, Sena- tor Bailey finally shouting out: \Let us have no more talk in the senate and in the country about this iron man. He is clay and very com- mon clay at that.\ Official Washington, shaken to its depths by the president's \lie given through Senator Lodge, to the state- ment made by Senator Tillman that Mr. Roosevelt had named Senators Foraker, Spooner and Knox as enemies of the rate bill, was further astounded by the declaration of former Senator Chandler that Mr. Tillman's statement was absolutely correct. Senator Tillman himself hurled a bombshell by producing a statement signed by Mr. Chandler recounting in detail what had taken place at the White House conference between him- self and the president. . After hearing Mr. Tillman, Senator Lodge, who Immediately consulted tlie president by telephone, quickly In- formed, the senate that President Roosevelt had pronounced the asser- tion to be \an unqualified falsehood.\ Mr. Lodge further quoted the president as having expressed sentiments In dl- rect\opposltloir~t<j*tJi03ff~attTlbuted\to- hlm by Mr. Tillman on the alleged au- thority of ex-Senator Chandler and as having declared himself to be heartily in favor of tlie' Spooner amendment. Mr. Chandler when Interviewed said: \I realise wha.t it means to me at the close of my life to be branded by the president of the United States as a deliberate and unqualified falsifier. I shall not rest under the Imputation.
