The Reform Agitation in Russia.
Governor-General's Narrow Escape
Would-be Assassin Killed by his Bomb.
United Press Association—By Kleofcrio Telegraph—Copyright St. Petersburg, May 20 Last month the Warsaw polioe discovered a plot to assassinate General Maksimovitch, the Governor-General. Since then he has frequently been threatened with assassination by bombs owing to his suppression of the May Day demonstrations, and the recent shooting of Jewish Socialists. In consequence he has been specially protected. A few minutes before the Governor-Gen-eral and other offioials were leaving Warsaw Castle yesterday, to attend a Cathedral service in honour of the Cz ( ar's birthday, a Polish revolutionary Socialist named Dobrowolski, a shoemaker, seated outside a cafe, near the Cathedral, was observed to look nervously towards the Castle. His demeanour excited suspicion, and two detectives approached him from opposite directions. Each seized him by tne hands, causing a bomb to drop from his pocket. This exploded, and Dobrowolski and one of the deteotives were killed, and twenty-one injured, including three ladies, a student, and two schoolboys. Three of these were seriously injured. Many arrests have bean made.
