nsssy, of tho Fourth Precinct. They have
several clues on which to work, one of which
is a letter found on top of tho parcel dolivered
at the house. This letter was inclosed in an
envelope, addressed like the parcel, " Mr.
i Wochsler, No. 829 Washington nvonuc. It
covered two sheets of business note paper,
ruled with bluo linos. It read as follows : .
Mr. J. WrchelerRin i I send yon a few articles
which I have taken from your store dishonestly.
I am very sorry for It now, and I sincerely trust
that you will not entirely condemn a young man
for snch an error. If you will be so Indulgent as
to keep this matter prlvato and not at
tempt to prosecute me I will repay
you for all Roods I havo taken. I
do this on the advice of ray uncle,
J. A. Lanney, of NewYoik. I will be pleased If
you will receive a visit from us, as my undo wants
to see you In regard to this matter, Ulobject and

No. 243 West FIfty-elghtb street, N. Y,
Tho letter was written in ink in an angular
I i hand, the writer evidently intending to
make it look like a lady's hand. Several of
tho words were mfsspolled, but the
letter on tho wholo was that of an
educated person. The defecC seemed to
bo intentional. The latter was undoubtedly
written as a decoy to induce Mr. Wechsler to
' look further into tho fatal package As a
matter offset it had this very effect.
l Other clues are afforded by tho presence in
ff the box of five printed business cards bearing
the name of John A. Lanney, wagon buildor,
415 West Eighteenth street. New York.
Although they were probably placed there
with the express intention of throwing the
polico off the track they may prove val
uable links,, in,,the chain. Then
.there'll another piece of writing in tho hands
.of.Oppt. MoKelvoy which, ho considers,
.affords a most valuable oluo, out he will not
give its exact nature. Superintendent Camp
beH'said this morning that he felt confident
that the man who sent tho infernal mnchino
.wquld bo in the hands of tho police during
the next twenty-four hours.
, '.A. BIO BXWADD OFFERED.
Two thousand dollars reward are offered
for the arrest of the man, and it has stirred
the detectives to their best efforts. One thou.
Band dollars are offered by Mr. Joseph
Wechsler, and the other thousand by his
partner, Mr. A. Abraham.
t Mrs. Wechsler's injuries are much more
serious than they werd at first supposed to
bo. Both her hands were so terribly lacerated
by the pieces of metal scattered by tho ex
plosion that they present tho appearance
.of jagged masses of raw flesh.
, Two fingers of tho left hand were
'almost entirely shot away, and the skin is
shrivelled up by the scattering blast of the
totplosivs." Her face is cashed all over by
jagged pieces of glass and metal, and her left
;eyolidfs out in two. Altogether thero ore
'fifteen separate wounds on her face
and neck. When Dr. A. Itoches-
,ter. of No. 3 St. James place,
called at the house this morning to dress
' Mrs. Wechsler's wounds he found ner in tho
greatest agony. He said that her case is made
- much more serious by the fact that the viru
lent acid mixed with the metal and glass had
entered tho wounds and brought about acute
inflammation. He greatly feared that blood
poisoning would ensue.
' Tho little boy Philip, who is only eight
years of ago, had several inches of his scalp
i torn off by the explosives. His left eye is
.Dadly injured and both his hands are severely
IT WAS A TEHBIBLE EirLOSITE.
An Evejjino Would reporter was shown
.this t morning by Mr. Wechsler into the
.room where the infernal machino was
lopened. Only by such ocular demon
stration could anything liko an accurate
.idea bo obtained of tho terrible force
of the unknown oxplosive. The room
is in the rear of the second floor and is used
as a children's bedroom. The furniture
and carpets wore completely wreoked. All
jo over the floor were places where
H i - the fiery acid had spread, burning the carpet
I .and tho floorincin apaces as large as eighteen
.inchos square. The pier glass and chandelier
.globes were shattered, and the bedclothing
was so burned as to be useless. Large
pieces chipped by tho flying pieces of metal
from tho cornice, tho ceiling and the picture
frames covered the floor, mingled with the
blood of Mrs. Wechslor and the little boy.

Mr. Wechslor is unable to account for tho
aot. He repudiates tho theory that it was
that of a discharged employee seeking re
venge. His statement as to vthe so.
L 'quenco of events last night is as
w follows: " I wont out for a walk at

in half an hour. I am told that at 9. IS a

NOT A DISTniCT MESSENOEB.
Capt. MoKolvey has learned by inquiry at
every District Messenger office in Brooklyn
and New York that the messenger who de
livered the package was not an employee
of any of the companies. Nono of tho com.
panics woro called upon last night to send
anything to Mr. Wechsler's house.
Mr. Hossinan, who recoived tho parcel,
says that tho messonger was short and slim,
and about 20 years of age, but he took no
particular notico of him and ho
is so nearsighted that he is
afraid that he would not bo able to idontify
the man. Tho messenger asked for no ro.
coipt, but hurried off as soon as ho had placed
the parcel in Mr. Itossman's hands.
Tho fragments of the box which contained
tho deadly explosivo wero on Supt. Oamp.
bell's table at Brooklyn Pollco Head,
qurrtors this morning. From the heap of
splinters romaining the box appears to have
been only about oleven inches long, fivo
inchos wide and three inches deep, a remark,
ably small space in which to put three pock,
etbooks and a machino of such terrible
powor. The top of the box was
furnished with a Blido to which
was affiled a steel spring. At tho lowor end
of tho spring was a sharp, jagged pieco of
steel which, when the ltd of tho box was
pushed back, was forced against tho explos
ivo substanco and thus brought about the
NO IDEA WHAT IT WAS.
Tho box and its oontents wero scattered in
such small fragments that as yet only a par.
tial idea can bo obtained of the
composition of tho machino. It Is
known that tho box contained manv
fragment of metal and glass and some power
ful acid in liquid form. Thore aro no traces
of gunpowder or dynamito, but Oapt. Mo
Kelvoy found a remnant of what he believes
is an exploded piece of gun cotton.
No. 213 West Fifty-eiehth street, given
as tho address of Louis B. Swift,
tho man who wrote the letter
accompanying the parcel, is the rear of
Hotol Gladstone. No one in tho hotel knows
a man of tho name of Swift or anything
about the parcel delivered at Mr. Wechsler's
John A. Lanney, the wagon builder, moved
from 415 West Eighteenth street threo months

Mr. Woohsler and Mr. Abraham have been
in business together in Brooklyn for the past

Mr. Gould spent Inst night at Irvington,
and came to town early this morning, accom
panied by his son Edward. He called first
at his house in Fifth avonpe, wharo he re
mained awhilo and then went to, his offlco,
'wKereueto'uslea"lilmBclf all tho morning
settling up bis affairs.
' He left tho Western Union building short
ly after noon with his son George, and took
a carriage for parts unknown. Several of
his clerks announced to inquirers that ho had
gone for the day, and said that it was gener
ally understood that he would sail on tho
At the Cuuard wharf this morning the un.
certainty as to the movements of tho Wall
street wizard was just as pronounced, The
officers of the Umbria professed total igno
rance as to whether Mr. Gould would sail,
and the ohief offlcor doclared that he hod
not seen it stated in tho morning papers.
Ho would not have known that Mr. Gould
was expected to be a passenger on the ves
sel. Mr. Gould's baggago arrived at tho wharf
early this morning and was placed in tho
care of the baggage-master, but not put on
board. It comsted of six small flat trunks
of plain and unpretentious exterior and com
paratively new, and three well'battered Sara
togas. The former wero identified by plain
'cards attached to their handles, bearing the
inscription, "Jay Gould, care Capt. Watson
steamer Umbria, stateroom," while the cards
on tho three others were the same, except
that they wore consigned to tho hold.
To a reporter Capt. Watson, of the Umbria,
said at noon to-dayi ' I have no positive
knowledgo that Mr. Gould will sail to-day.
He has engaged no rooms definitely,
and it is not true that the seven
staterooms which some of the news
papers crcditod to him, wero actually en.
gaged. The only definite thing about it is
that his name is on the list. His baggage,
which arrived here vory early this morning,
come with the instructions that it was not to
be put aboard until further orders. No fur
ther orders have yet been received, and you
see it is still lying out on the dock. How.
ever, I don't believo there is much doubt
about his going."
Apparently there was not muoh in tho mind
of Mr. Gould himself, judging from the
freedom with which he has recently talked of
his plans for his trip abroad. Ho is
to be accompanied by his wife
and tho other members of his
family, with the exception of his two elder
bons, who stay here to take charge of his
affairs, and he thinks that he will not be
away more than throe or four.months. He
will not stay in England any longth
of timo, but will go right on to
meet his yacht either at Gibraltar or Mar.
seilles, and will spend the greater port of the
time cruising about the Mediterranean. He
will go to Constantinople and the Bospborus,
and also visit Alexandria.
If be has time be will go on a voyage of
discovery up the Nile, and visit some of
the historio localities of Egypt. Tho reason
that he does not care to travel ex.
clusively in Europe is that he visited
the Continent and did a good deal of sight
seeing in 1879, and the lazy lifo aboard his
yacht on the Mediterranean he thinks will
be just the thing to build up his worn-out
Counsellor DeLonoey bos sent a letter to
Dlstrict-Attoruoy Martine, protesting
against allowing Jay Gould to
depart for Europe on the Umbria
and holding him re sponcible for the failuro
to arrest Mr. Gould on the orimlnal charge
tn connection with the Kansas Pacino
securties. To this Mr. Martine re
plied to-day, that a careful consider,
atlon of the preliminary question of law
had aroused grave doubts as to the success
of a prosecution of Gould, and he did not
feel warranted iu causing his arrest.
No order of arrest to prevent the departure
of Gould has been issued in civil proceedings,
according to Order of Arrest Clerk Martin, of
the Sheriff's office.
At 2.05 Mr. Gould went on board tho Um

Policeman Nicholas Ulich, of tho Thirtieth

In the English Uovcrnment'a Policy.
SVECUI. CABLE TO THE EVEHIKO WOBLD.J
London, Oct. 29. These reasons aro given
for the remarkable change in tho policy of
tho Government: Tho Marquis of Hart,
ington complained to Lord Salisbury
that , he was bearing the brunt
of the battle while he (Salisbury)
was resting in France, and ho insisted on the
Premier's return. As soon as Lord Salisbury
arrived in Loudon the Marquis drovo to Ar
lington House in an ordinary hansom-cab to
escape notice, and had two hours' confer
ence with tho Premier. He showed how the
country was going over to Gladstone and in
sisted that unless the proclaimings were
stopped in Ireland and the polico quioted in
London, he would reopen communications
with Gladstone and orrango some plan for a
settlement of Home Bulo and domestic ques
tions. Lord Salisbury asked for time to consider.
He consulted with Sir Miahael Hicks-Beach,
who counselled him to follow Harrington's
advice. Ho thereupon instructed the au
thorities in Ireland to stop the proclaiming
of the League meetings. Ohief Secretary
Balfour, raged, at being thus baffled in his
efforts to show what a strong government
in Ireland could do. Home Secretary Mat
thews at the same time was directed to givo
orders that tho police cease their brutal

When Mr. Purdy was asked for whom he
intended to vote for District-Attorney ho
begged tho qttostlon.
Assemblyman Mulry served in tho last
Legislaturo as tho representative of Tam

said that ho has had enough of boss rulo
when it dictates the nomination of suohaman
as Col. Fellows in preference to DoXancey

was known all over tho oity before 10 o'clock

assembling to protest against their dictation.
It is suid on the host authority that several
of tho bosses aro favoring the withdrawal
of Col. Fellows from the ticket. There
is no doubt that last night's meeting
has already had its effect. It would not sur
prise many peoplo who havo had talks to-day
with County Democracy and Tammany Hall
bosses if on effort was made be
foro Monday to got Col. Fellows to
withdraw. Thero appears to be some
foundation to a statement that strong
influenco is being exerted from Washington
and Albany to accomplish this object. The
friends of Gov. Hill say that he was very
angry at tho stupendous blunder of tho local

FELLOWS MUST WtTHDBAW.
The members of tho State Committee who
are not representatives of Tammany Hall and
tho County Democracy are unanimously in
favor of Col. Fellows's withdrawal. They
will not admit this publicly, but they do
urge such a courso in private con
sultations. Members of tho com
mitteo who represent rural districts
say that if Col. Fellows remains on tho
United Democratic ticket it will cost tho
State ticket thousands and thousands of votes
in their sections of tho State, and that the

Republican campaign speakers are using
tho nomination of Col. Fellows for all that it

There was a rumor downtown this morn

wore thinking of asking or advising Col. Fel

denied this. Thoy said lm u ould cither rule

A HEAVY REGISTRATION. IH

every indication points to a veiyiSLH

lawyers and Germans, all of whom aro at- 9Lb1
tractedtothe polls by tho excitement, ere- . SlM
ated by tho contest for District-Attorney. B
Tbo heavy registration, Mr. O'Brien thinks, " ifM
means a powerful vote for Do Lancey Nicoll- yH
and, tho ohief of tho Bureau of IH
Statistics added, " De Lancey Nicoll 'will be- ,'JB
olocted beyond the shadow of a doubt. Mea
who generally let on off-year election go ( jSbH

this heavy registration means." , jt

a falling off in tho Second, Third and Eighth ;J-S1M
