T;t fuse of a, liomb sizzling and
ajvittenrs under a spectators' bench In
the T .nibs police court tit 9:1G yester
day morning caught the sharp ryes of
Patrolman George O'Connor. Until
that moment O'Connor was bemoaning
hlr tuck th.it he should have to bo In
court t'i make a charge nftnlnst u push
cart pertler instead of liolng homo with
his wife nnd two children on his usual
hours "f leave. Instantly he darted
forward and grabbing the bomb, which
hod oily thicii Inches of fusp visible,
started for tho doorway. Hp tried to
rub tlie fuse out, nnd fnl'.lng In that he
terked the Insulated fuso from Its
faMenlng In thp heart of tho explosive,
Kxrept for his quickness of eye, his
preface of mind In a most ticklish
situation nnd his cotirngo the Tombs
police court probably would have been
wrecked and many persons. Including
Magistrate John A. L. Campbell, who
s sitting on the bench with his wlf.j
anil several visitors, might have been
killed or severely Injured.
There were mo,ro than two pounds of
mixed black and smokeless powder nnd
about thirty loaded cartridges In tho
bomb. Experts say that tho explosive-
would have done great damage.
IIiikc Conspiracy Seen.
The bomb Is tho fifth powerful ex
plosive that has been placed In churches
or courts slnoo the I. W. W. and tho
anarchists began their campaign In this
city last winter under tho ruIbo of un
employment. Tho attempt to wreck the
Tombs court yesterday, following
within three days the explosion of the
h nib outside tho Itronx county Court
Hou.e, led many experts In the I'ollce
Department to believe that the bomb
was part of a huge conspiracy on the
part of anarchist or I. V. W. men to
wage war on churches and courts.
There is no doubt in their minds that
it was a deliberate attack on Magistrate
Campbell. Ho has figured more con
fp'.cuously than any other City Magis
trate In the handling of tho I. W. v.
tases. He sentenced 170 of tho 190 per
sons arrested at the time of the raid
of Frank Tannenbaum on tho Church
of St. Alphonsus. He .sent Hecky Edol
sohn to prison. Ho convicted llounk
White, the pastor of the Church of
Social Involution, and sent him to the
Island. All these convictions were the
result of tho I. W. W. agitation. At tho
lime of the I. W. V. trials Magistrate
Campbell received many threatenlnr let
ten and was followed by gangs of
loughs on several occasions.
Furthermore. It will be recalled that
Arthur Caron, who was one of Tinmen
taum's assistants In the raids on churches
last spring, was killed by tho premature
explosion "tfa" bomb In a llathousu at
1626 Lexington avenue on July 4. This
convinced the police that members of the
I. V were engaged In the manurac

England's Famous Warrior
Takes Chill Resulting in
"BOBS" WAS THE IDOL
OF BRITISH SOLDIERS
Special Cable Detpatel) to Tiis Sex '
London, Nov. 14. Lord Roberts, Kng-1
land's oldest General nnd popular hero
of thp South African wnr, died nt tho ,
front nt 8 o'clock to-night, according to
nn olllclnt announcement of the press
The official bureau Issued the follow
ing announcement to-night:
"Iord Kitchener announces with deep
regret, which he knows will be shared
by the whole army, that he received on
Saturday the following telegram from
Sir John French, the commander of tho
llrltlsh forces in France:
" '1 deeply regret to tell you that Lord
Roberts died at 8 o'clock this evening.'
"Lord Roberts was on a brief visit
to France In order to greet the Indian
troops, of which he was Colonel in Chief.
Ho contracted a chill on Thursday and
succumbed after a short Illness to an at
tack of pneumonia."
Lord Roberts's age he was 82 on
September 30 last was a contributory
cause of death, although he had been
In his usual health lately, which was ex
ceptionally good for a man of his age.
His death will have purely a sent!-
mental effect upon the situation. Since
the outbreak of the present war he had
been working hard imploring young
men to realize their country's danger
and to offer their services In the present
For years he had been preaching the
doctrine of llrltlsh military unprepared-
ness, and when he retired from active
service In 1905 he devoted his time to
attempting to arouse all England to the
urgent, necessity of adopting compulsory
military training nnd service.
His earnestness In this regard cauied
him to be looked upon by opponents as
a fanatic upon the subject.
Several times since the end of last
July he had conferred at the War Ofllce
with Lord Kitchener, and- these meet
ings may be regarded as consultations,
but the effect of any suggestions offered
by Lord Roberts Is problematical.
Of all the brilliant soldiers who helped
to found and consolidate the British
Umpire In the Hast none has acquired a
higher niche In the temple of military
fame than he who was known In the
llrltlsh peerage as Earl Roberts of Kan
dahar, nnd to the public as "Bobs,
name popularly bestowed almost a genera
tion ago, when the fiery little soldier was
first focussed In the public eye through
the drab medium of official "mentions,
He was of slight physique and In his
youth suffered from a weak heart. Tet
he was so courageous that early In life
he won the Vlctoila Cross and gave many
other proofs of physical prowess. So
skilled a lender was ho that In his
Indian campaigns on more than one
occasion with C.000 troops he defeated
50,000 of the enemy: so skilled In ad
ministration and organization that he
could bring order out of chaos In as
aulck time as he could quell an Indian
mutiny, nnd withal kindly, cheerful, stanch
In bis friendships and continually fighting
fr the best for his soldiers. It was no
wonder that "Hobs' soon won worldwide
fame, i"1' a sf,cure I'lllce he l'eafts of
was born In 1832 at Cawnpore,
India, the son or another famed Indian
tighter. Gen. lr Abraham Roberts. O. C.
It., and was christened Frederick Sleigh.
He was educated at Iiton, Sandhurst
and Addiscombe. At Addlacombo he suf
fered much from his heart, and when he
went to Bombay with fifty other cadets
It was doubtful If he could endure the
ellmnte. At the outbreak of the Indian
inutlnv In May, 1857, ho was transferred
from the quartermaster-General's staff
to the Delhi Held force, and here no saw
his first real service.
It was service such as millions of Euro
neans are undergoing now. Bullets rained
around him; ono or ins neat menus, sinna-
Imr with n a few feet or him, was killed,
and when tho final assault was delivered
Huberts' horse was Killed unoer mm.
After th Is he went back to ins mrtn
nlace to serve as a staff officer, dlstln
gulshlus himself repeatedly. In one action
while In command of the Ninth Lancers
he performed the feat or inarcning sixty-
six miles In rorty hours, giuing an uie
He was with Sir Colin u.iinpnou at
the second relief of Lucknow, and at ths
battle of Cawnpore snortiy anerwaru.
it wns In the engagement at Khudagnnt
on January 2, 1858, that he won his
Victoria Cross y capiurmg in inic
h.-inrled combat a stnndard from two
sepoys and also by killing a sepoy who
was anout to am a miwar.
He served the rest of that month and
then returned to England on u year's
sick leave. Healdes the Cross in tins, nis
flrt campaign, ne was innuiuuni ncven
times In despatches, received the medal
with three clasps, and on hU promotion
to Captain, shortly after the expiration of
his sick leave, a brevet majority. Dur
ing Ida sick absence he married, on May
17, 1S59, Miss Nora Ilrews.
On his return lie saw service In seme
of the mountain campaigns, and In 1887
was appointed Assistant Quartermaster
General to Sir Donald Stewart's Iiengal
Hrlgade for Abyssinia. He then made
another record for etllclency In handling
troops, for which he was mentioned three
times In omelal despatches. Then h got
another leave, returning to India In IMS,
when he undertook another particularly
troublesome campaign Into Lushal, In
which he had to ciu a pain iw imm

were attacked by cholera, as well as

Dcsplto the Admiralty's silence the

Mr. Franklin expressed surprise when
Dr. Beaumont's remarks were quoted to

that tho Olympic went to the rescue of
a floundering steamer off tho Irish
coust. He would not say, however, tjiat
he knew this stenmer to be thu suiisr
Dr. Heaumont was aboard the Olympic
on October 27 as she neared the Irish
coast and, nccordlng to yesterday's new

dreadnought. Hut he said he did not
catch sight of the Audacious or be
hold a floundering man-of-war and the
quick and daring work of rescue which
the Olympic's crow is described as per
forming. When tho Olympic reached the Auda

out a hitch, except that several of ths
small boats were capsized hy the heavy
seas. Uefpre the crew of the Audacious
was transshipped several vessels of the
Kngllsli squadron ln the Irish Sea came
up and aided In tho work.
The crew was finally transferred to
the Olympic, at noon, within three hours
after the accident.
At Irst It was thought possible to tow
the Audacious to the Irish coast, and a
