THE LONDON EXPLOSIONS.
There were three explosions in
London on the 21th of January,
briefly referred to in our last issue.
The first occurred in the crypt of
Westminster Hall shortly after two
o'clock in. the afternoon, the second
in the Strangers' Gallery of the
House of Commons a few minutes
later, and the third almost at the
same moment in the building known
as the "While Tower. It is consi
dered fortunate that the explosion
in the Hall happened before that in
the House, as the noise of the first
drew many visitors out of the Com
mons chamber in time to save their
lives. A lady visitor noticed a
smoking package on the steps out
side the crypt and drew a police
man's attention to it. He picked it
up and was running to throw it out
of the building, when he let it fall
and it immediately exploded with
terrific force. That policeman and
another were fatally hurt, and two
oilier persons badly injured. Re
markable force was shown by this
explosion in a downward direction.
Holes were scooped in the ground
large enough to hold a man. Into
one of the holes so formed Constable
Cox wa,s violently thrown and from
it wis extricated in a bruised and
battered condition. The foundation
of the Hall was uninjured, but the
roof was badly damaged. The mag
nificent stained glass window over
the main doorway was damaged, but
not beyond repair. The statues of
"William IV. and George IV., were
overturned and greatly injured.
Some of the windows were blown
bodily away, while others were rid
dled as with shot. The roof of the
crypt, in spite of its massive
strength, was greatly damaged, rifts
being visible here and there.
In the House of Commons the
damage done was immense, and
will take months to repair. Tem
porary repairs will lie made against
the assembling of Parliament on
Feb. 19th. Apparently the explosive
was placed under the Peers gallery,
on the Government side of tho house.
All the woodwork in thai part of the
building was shattered and n wide
hole made through the lloor. Tho
gallery was displaced, and even tho
solid stonework of the doorways
was either pulverized or shifted
from its position; every pane of
glass in the houbo was smashed to
atoms, and the gallery benches over
turned and broken. The gallery
was generally dismantled. A heavy
beam, which formed one of the sup
ports of the gallery, .was projected
into the Speaker's chair, seriously
injuring it. Gladstone's scat wns
torn to pieces. Three-fourths of
the glass roof lmd been removed
previous lo the explosion, 1ml what ,
was left was shattered. The cxplo- i
sion wrenched oil llio Jrisii navp
which f oi ins part of the ornamental
work on the panels of the Parlia
ment house, and tho harp dropped
into the sent of a Parneltltc member.
Mr. l'orslcr's scat was ripped up.
Of the golden letters "V. It." on
the desk opposite Gladstone's seat,
the "V" was torn away. Fortunate
ly the downward force of tho dyna
mite failed lo reach the gas meter of
the House of Commons, which is
directly below the ventilating cham
ber. About sixty visitors were in the
Tower at the time of the explosion
there. The explosive agent was
placed behind a rack of rifles in llie
banqueting hall of the "While Tower.
It played its maddest freaks with the
rifles. Many of them were twisted
in the most eccentric shapes imagin
able and their distorted forms scat
tered about the apartment in a mar
vel of confusion. All the glass and
other fragile articles in the hall were
smashed out of all semblance of their
former selves. A large hole was
crushed through the lloor at the spot
where the dynamite was placed. Di
rectly overhead a similar hole was
blown through the roof. The con
cussion displaced the great stone
which lay over the tomb of the ne
phews of Richard III. and exposed
the coffins in which their dust reposes
almost in sight of the spot where
their eyes wore so cruelly put out
and their young lives smothered.
Tremendous crowds were attracted
by the explosions, and their indigna
tion became furious at the sight of
the bleeding heads, faces and limbs
of the children who formed a large
portion of the injured visitors to the
buildings. Several persons were ar
rested, but all, with the exception of
an Irishman of several names, were
released for want of evidence. "Wo
men are supposed to have had a hand
in the outrage.

The recent dynamlle outrages arc
likely lo cause an extension of the
English detective service. Distress
lias been caused the poor Irish in
England from hundreds being dis
charged from employment since tho
explosions. In some places inoffen

treated in reprisal for the deeds of

New York, was damaged to the ex

The Equality Association is blamed
for the outrage, but its members
deny all knowledge of it.

Some apology for a human being
is in the habit of mutilating the copy
of this paper displayed at the ollico
door. He may find it cheaper one
of these days to pay a nickel for a
whole paper than to cut articles out
of this copy that is stuck up for the
benefit of the poor. '
The mynahs seem to have earned
as much opprobrium here as the
English sparrows have in New Eng
land and Canadian cities. Indeed,
one of the few merits grudgingly
allowed them here is that they keep
the pugnacious and rapacious spar
row in check. "Wc should vote for
converting both the unmusical birds
into pie and stew, and getting in
their places varieties of -song birds
that would be equally useful in
eradicating the grub, bug and insect
pests of vegetation.

The Paris correspondent of the
London Spectator shows, by figures
a tremendous difference in mortality
between the bachelor and benedict
classes, during the prevalence of
cholera in Hint city in November
last. He also shows that mortality
was much lower among married than
single females, and concludes that
"women manage to keep themselves
alive and their husbands too." This
conveys a solemn hint to Honolulu
bachelors in view of a. possible visit
ation of cholera this year.
