WAS IT DYNAMITE?

tion I That an Attempt Has Been Made
on BCIs LifeA Broken "Wire Renders I
HaimlessThe Affair May Have Been
Concocted Simply for the Purpose of
Creating: a Sensation.
"WASHINGTON, NOV 4.An attempt waa
made last night to either Mi or malm
Chief Justice Walte of the Triced States
Supreme Court or to perpetrate silly hoax
About (3 3 0 a sma ll pasteboard box
was sent to his house through the
special-delive ry postal service I wa a
about ten by six inches and looked some
thing like a valentine box. I was addressed
In a small, cramped and apparently dis
guised back-hand to "Hon. Chief Justice
Waite, No. 1415 I street N W Washington,
DC" Near the bottom were the words
"Important papers," underscored.
The thing inclosed was a glass tu be about
ten inches long and of the diameter of a
lead pencil. The tu be was bent at an angle
of about sixty degrees, and was fastened to
the box by means of sma ll pieces of heavy
paper pasted over I The tube for most of
Its lengih contained a jet-black liquid, but
about one and a half inches from the
end was a percussion cap separating
the fluid from a little more than an inch of
coarse powder, apparently what is known
as Atlas powder &.t the other end of the
powder was another percussion cap and to
this was attached the wire, which was ap
parently intended to explode the tube.
This wire was ]oined to a small rubber
band fastened to one side of the box,
and another wire ran from the rubber
to a "hook and eye," which was held in
place by a piece of paper pasted over i If
the machine is really what it seems to be
the raising of the lid would have exploded
I Before it reached the Chief Justice 's
house, however, the box was stamped on
one side by a post-office employe, and the
force of the blow caused the wire to slip
through the "hook and eye," thus severing
the necessary connection.
There are circumstances which lead to a
suspicion that the whole thing is a hoax,
The person through whom the matter was
i ought to the attention of the police is a
young man who sells items to newspaper
correspondents, and who is not by many
regarded as Uustworthy His name is with
held at the request of the police, to whom
he told substantially the following story
About 6 o'clock he went to the post-office
to post a letter and going to one of the
desks to address it he noticed a man put
ting the addiess of Chief-Justioo Waite
on a box. says he thought nothing of
it at the time, and therefore did
not observe the man closely enough
to be able to identify him. When
on the street, however, the thought
came to him that there was something tus
picious about it, inasmuch as the Chief Jus
tice had on Welnesday delivered the opin
ion denying a writ of error to the con
demned Chic ig Anarchists thereupon
went to the home of the lief Justice and
inquired of him if he had leceived a box
The Chief Justice said he had not and the
young man then went to the post-office
and ascertain ed that the box had been de
livered 6 3 0 o'clock. next offered to
sell two newspaper correspondents a story
about it The correspondents desired to
make a ui.tb.er iuvfcstigauon, and went to
the police station and told the story to De
tective Sergeant Hollanberger, who imme
diate ly called on the Chief Justice, who
then acknowledged receiving the box and
gave It to the sergeant
The Chief Justice said he had received the
box while at dinner and had opened it, but
without being harmed, the wire which was
to have exploded it ivmg been detached,
as already stated Mr Waite did not attach
any importance to the box and said he
thought it a sensat onal ix. The sergeant
took the box to police headquarters, where
it is now held as evidence. Sergeant Hol
lanberger said he had no clew to the sender
of the box.

Novelties in Evening or Other Toilets
Outside Garments for Winter Wear.
[Special New York Correspondence.!
Importers who remained late in Paris in
search of the latest autumn and early win
ter novelties have returned to the ir native
shores, bringing with them many new sug
gestions in wool dresses of tailor cut, for
the promenade, in corded silk and velvet
for visiting and carriage costumes, and in
Buriped Marie Antoinette brocad es and
fancy velvets and plushes for evening
toilets. Few contrasts in color, and the use
of fine pilot cloth and other faced v, ools,
are the futures of the most stylish tailor
gowns for instance, a moss-green cloth
dress opens over a vest of pale almond
cloth, with skirts of the same, boldered
with dark-brown fur The vtst is covered
with applique work of silk cord in arabesque
designs. Next to the use of cloths and vel
vets come plush and fur in combination
with cloth The velvets and plushes this
season are wonderfully varied in kind, a
pearing in changeable effects, or in "two
toned" patterns as they are called, and also
in plaids both little and large, in staipea of
every conceivable design, and width, in leaf
designs, with moirecl stripes, and in imit a
tion of leopard and tiger skins
The designs for these tailor gowns give
long straight lines in par ts of the skirt,
with plaited panels
and swinging curves
in other portions, and
still others show sho rt
with irregular draper
ies in Louis XI
style, with odd three
cornered revers on
one side of the tunic.
There are also very
simple draperies on
some of the most ele
gant costumes, such
as a French polenaise
deftly li't'd at the
sides abo ve a skirt of
velvet, plain striped
or plaided. These
polenais es are usual-
of finest camel's
hair, and although
not new in name, ap

and wove lines
that give each model

BUFFALO BILL ABROAD.

The success of "our own" Buffalo Bill
W. Codyin England is very gratifying
to thousands of admirers on this side
There was more truth than many imagined
in his reply to the mqmry
"What are yon dome in England?"
"Chiefly playing poker with Duchesses."
i & English nobihty quickly "cottoned
o" Buffalo Bill because they recognized
that he belonged to a higher order than then*
ownNature's nobility. Despite his wild
life he early managed to acquire a educa
tion and the poli sh which makes hftn easy
even in roy al society.
His poli sh is the bitter fruit, it is said, of a
young love experience When a young man
on the plains, wild, woolly and unkempt in
appearance and characte r, he fell in love
with a dashing httie school teacher. Full
of pluck and faith in himself he propos ed
to her. She laughed at him and hecol
After a tune he braced up, bought some
books, and began to study.

Buffalo Bill's Wild
West Co, London, Sept. 19,1887," W
Shoemaker, of the Cowboy Band, writes
Some weeks ago I was suffering from
great disorder of the liver and kidneys and
general prostrati on I was forced to quit
work and take bed I called in a physi
cian, who only afforded temporary relief.
A frie nd induced me to take Warner's safe
cure, which afforded aunpst instant relief,
and aft er taking three bottles, I find myself
in aB good health as at any tune in life
Two other members of the Wild West
show, Mawe Beardsley, pony express rider,
and Jim Mitchell, a cowboy, add to this
statement of Shoemaker's, that in then: long
experience on the plains, from change of
water, climate, and mode of life, and severe
riding, they became subject to liver and
kidney diseases, and they have found a sure
remedy for these troubles in Warner's safe
cure. Mawe Beardsley says: I constantly
recommend it to friends
Buffalo BUI has pluck and courage and
hard sense, and not only controls all the
wi ld elements that make up the Wild West
show, but controls himself
His experience as a scout makes him wary,
discreet and shrewdi quickly learns
the best way to secure results, and, li ke a
true man, has no prejudices against any
thing that proves its merit s.
Buffalo Bill is so popular in England he
may come home a

not he will probably enjoy himself quite as
well, having secured a fortune ample
enough for all his wants, title or no title.

Consumption.Mrs. EDWARD NEWTON, of Hamwsmtth,

ble cure in my case. I was so reduced that my friends had all
given me up, and I had also been giv en up by two doctors. I then
went to the best 'doctor In these parts. told me that medicine
iras only a punishment in my case, and would not undertake to
1 treat me. said I might try Cod liver oil if I
liked, as that was the only thing' that could possi
bly have any curative power over consumption so
far advanced. I tried the Cod liver oil as a last
treatment, but I was so weak I could not ke ep it
on my stomach. husband, not feeling satisfied
to give me up yet though he had bought for me
everything he saw advertised for complaint, procured a quan
tity of your'Golden Medical Discovery.' I to ok only four bottles,
and, to the surprise of everybody, am to-day doing my own work,
and am entirely free from that terrible cough which harrassed me
nig ht and day. I have been afQicted with rheumatism for a number
of years, and.now feel so much better that I believe with a con
touatfon of your Golden Medical Discovery** I will be restored
to perfeot health. I would say to those who are falling a prey to
that terrible disease consumption, do not do as I did, rake every
thing' else first but take the' Golden Medical Discover y' in the
early stages of the disease, and thereby save a great deal of suf
fering and be restored to health at once. Any person who is
still in doubt, need but write me, inclosing a stamped, self
addressed envelope for reply, when the foregoing statement will
b fully substantiated by me."
