By the Associated Press.
London, Jan. 22 —AH the party lead
ers have issued whips exhorting their
followers to be unremitting in attend
ance to their parliamentary duties dur
ing the coming session, as the home
rule bill will be introduced shortly after
the opening, and heavy, hot debates are
to be expeoted from the beginnio'g.
At the cabinet meeting yesterday the
ministers discussed tbe legal aspects of
the home rule bill.
Reports that Gladstone is failing have
caused great solicitude and some alarm
among hia personal friends and the ad
vocates of home rule. To dispel all
dcubtß he walks and drives frequently in
the parks, besides sending out occasional
denials tbat, he is feeling less strong aud
euergetic than formerly. There ia a
general apprehension among the Liberal
Englishmen, however, that the prime,
minister is not as well at he and his
friends would make the world believe.
It is impossible to verify tbe apprehen
sions, as G adstone is very closely
guarded by his family and his nearest
■rlends, and only personal and political
intimates are able to gain access to him.
ANXIETY IN CAIRO.
Europeans Alarmed at the Khedlve'i
Defiant . ttttade.
Cviro, Jan 22 —The good impression
caused by the success of Qreat Britain's
intervention in Egyptian cabinet affairs
is giving way to a feeling of great anxiety
among tbe European residents, in con
sequence of the almost defiant attitude
since adopted h«\ tbe khedive. The
kbedive's open encouragement of popu

caused by the action of the British gov
eminent. The British officials here be
lieve the khedive's course has shaken
the British position in Egypt and en
dangered thi progress of the reforms in
stituted by the British government.
London, Jan. 22 —The Cairo corres
pondent of the Times says: The situa
tion is very strained. Popular excite
ment is increasing owing to tbe general
belief that the khedive intends to test
Great Britain's determination to con
tinue her occupation and ascendancy.
The press denounces the British officials
as rebels because tbey iefused to recog
nize three new ministers during
the two days between the kh c dive's
nomination and England's rejection
of them. The khedive is credited
openly with his intention to dismiss all
the highest English officials. The lan
guage of the press is increasing in vio
lence and alludes to the khedive ac a
hero. The khedive, with a strong na
ture impelling him to extremes and with
preferences for advisors interested in
disturbing public order, can easily be
made the tool of clever heads about his
DYNAMITING IN ROME.
Bombs Exploded Before an Hotel and the
Rome, Jan, 22. — Dynamite bombg
were exploded almost simultaneously
thia afternoon before the Hotel D'Angle
terre and in the garden of the proprie
tor's house in Via San Claudia. The
heel wae partly wrecked. Nobody was
injured, although the hotel had more
than 100 lodgers at the hour of tbe ex
plosion. At first the front wall was ex
pected to fall; after an examination,
however, tbe commissary announced
that there was no immediate danger and
the lodgers might return to pack their
trunks. Several women refused to re
turn, and their belongings were cared
for by the police. Before evening
all had left for other hotels.
The proprietor said this evening the
hotel and contents are almost
a total loss; not a whole piece of furni
ture is left in the building. The walls
of houses near tbe hotel were cracked,
and all the windows in Via San Claudia
more or less damaged. All the windows
were smashed for 100 yards on every
side. No walls were racked, however,
and but for the breakage of glassware,
crockery and furniture little barm was
done. Nobody was injured, as the
families bad left their ho nee. for tbe
afternoon. Immediately after the ex
plosion the report went abroad that An
archists were again at work. Tbe pro
prietor of the Hotel D'Angelterre, how
ever, Bays he is convinced both explo
sions were caused by a man whom he
discharged recently from his service.
JOY AT BELGRADE.
The Reconciliation of HHan and Natalie
Belgrade, Jan. 22 —The Servian rad

over the reconciliation of Milan and
Natalie. The newspapers are vicing
with each other in expressing congratu
lations and good wishes. Young King
Alexander telegraphed to his parents the
announcement that their reconciliation
is the pleasantest news ever received by
him, and that it afforded him the hap
piest day of his life. Many letters and
telegrams of congratulation have been

received by the king and bis parents
from foreign courts.
Io court circles it is said the reconcil
iation is due to the pleadings of the son,
but thia is not credited generally. The
whole affair is believed to have been
the achievement ol Russian diplomat' l ,
who found tbe absence of so good a friend
as Natalie a serious detriment to their
interests. Milan was Rusaianiz-d by
securing loans from St. Petersburg, and
bis return to Natalie is believed to have
followed directly a promise of further
payments from the same source.
The question as to the necessity oi an
other marriage ceremony is much dis
ensued. The divorce was not accepted
as valid by Natalie, although Milan al
ways maintained that it wae complete
from every point of view. As the di
vorce was sanctioned by law it probably
will stand, and another wedding will be

Denver, Colo., Jan. 22 —All places of
amusement found open tonight wore
closed by order of the pohea board, and
the proprietors and employes arre;- c l

raided was the Tabor Grand Opera
house and tho Wonderland. The places
were nermitttd to get under way. aud
The police wore forced to make
tbe arreßts by Rev. H. M. Hart,
dean of the Episcopal church, who has
inaugurated a crusade against Sunday
amusements and insists upon the en
forcement of the law which heretofore
has been a dead letter. After the thea
ters were closed immenee crowds gath

the matter over, much excitement ex

made for Dean Hart's Inuse and
in a short time about 2000 people
surrounded it and alter hooting
and cat calling, stones were thrown,
smashing the windows. An alarm was
rung and the, police soon arrived on tbe
scene and dispersed the crowd without
making any arrests. Nobody was in
the bombarded building at the time,
the dean and his fam ly having been
removed by friends a short time before
the mob arrived. The excitement soon
subsided and no farther trouble is ex
The Sadden Mental Derangement of a
London, Jan 22.—The exact facts ac
to the sudden mental derangement of
John Luning, son of a San Francisco
millionaire, and hia subsequent removal
from the yacht Alert at Nice to Paris,
are as follows: Luning began acting
peculiar when half way across the At
lantic; he grew rapidly worse until his
arrival at Nice, where the friends whom
he was enter ainlng decided that for his
own welfare they ought to place him
under restraint. They telegraphed
Charles Peters, formerly Luning's
schoolmate in San Francisco and
now student of art in Paris,
the details concerning Luning's
condition. Peters, Frank Unger snd
Harry Gillig went to Nice and took
Luning back to Paris. They summoned
to the hotel Dr. Warren Bey, an Ameri
can physician, and subsequently called
Dr. Charcot. Upon tbe recommenda
tion of both physicians Luning was re
moved to a private asylum. His friends
then cabled to London for an English
physician aud the physician will bring
Luning to London shortly.
A dispatch from Paris says Luning
planned to marry in Paris a young
woman from Now York, who was there
awaiting hie arrival. The dispatch
adds that Luning was a conductor on a
New York elevated railway when, by
his father's deatb, he became an heir to

tained are fearfully burned beads and
faces. AU were also injured internally
from inhaling bur ing flames, which
scorched and parched their throats to
such an extent that their escape from
instant death is almost miraculous.
The other injured persons suffered
from burns on various parts of the head,
limbs and body.
SCENES IN THE HOSPITAL.
The wreck and Us consequences was
the topic of conversation in Alton to
day. A representative of the Associ
ated Press arrived in-the city early this
morning and visited the hospital. The
scenes in the wards occupied by tbe in
j ured were even more heart-rending
than yesterday. Lying on cote,
wrapped in cotton bandages until they
had almost lost the semblance of human
beings, and surrounded by weeping re
lations and sorrowing friends, they
formed a p : cture that brought teai'B to
the eyes even of the physicians. Tbe
moanings of the patients was piteous.
Every few moments some tortured soul,
writhing in agony, would half rise from
bis couch, then fall back, suffering
more intense pain than before. Tbey
would beg piteouely to be relieved from
A PITIFUL SIGHT.
Perhaps the most pitiful sight was
that of 13-year-old Willie McCarthy.
The boy's flesh was baked from bead to
foot; his eyes were burned out; the
skin was peeled oil' his face and head,
taking with it large portions of flesh.
The only response his anxious mother
received to her inquiry as to how he
felt, was: "Oh, my head! Doctor, can't
Some patients lay perfectly quiet, no
sigh or moan escaping from their lips.

A VISIT TO THE MORGUE.
Not until a visit was made to the
morgue did the horrible reality of the
accident become apparent. Here,
awaiting the undertaker, were tbe
bodies of five of those who died during
tbe night. Tbe bandages were re
moved from the bodies and the 'earful
ravages of the burning oil were plainly
apparent. Scarcely one in five could be
recognized even by their relatives. The
oil, wherever it touched tbeekin,burned
deep into the flesh, while euch portions
of the cuticle as escaped entire destruc
tion were blistered and in many places
blackened by tbe intense beat. Their
lips were terribly swollen and dis
colored and the eyes of all five were
burned out entirely. Every vestige
of hair was burned off the face
and head, and in many places tbe skull
and cheek bones were exposed. Wives,
mothers, sisters .uid daughters, on being
shown the bodies of their beloved dead,
shrank back in horror and could scarcely
be convinced that tbe distorted features
before tbem were all that remained of
tboee so dear to tbem.
INQUEST AND FUNERALS.

hospital, the jury having previously
been in session at, Warm and Alton

others on Tuesday. Edward Miller was

OTHER PEOPLE MISSING.
There was a rumor on tbe streets this
afternoon that 11 students from Shutleff
college were missing since tbe accident.
All efforts to verify the rumor failed,
however, but the fact that bodies were
found this morning near the scene of the
wreck gives rise to the probability tbat
there may be yet more bodies which
have not been found.
Mrs. William Mantz reported thia
morning that her husband, who started
for the scene of the accident, had not
yet returned. A searching party organ
ized, and after a long time tbe dead
body of Mantz was found near Wood river,
over half a mile from tbe place where
the explosion occurred. The supposi
tion is he started to run in the direction
of liia home as soon as the explosion
took place, but was caught by the show
er of seething fluid. He, however, most
have run some distmce after he waa
burned, and probably fell dead on
reaching the spot where his body waa
Reports about others missing led to
the finding of other bodies, and when
the reporter left the city, parties were
still out searching for additional victims.
CROWDS OF SIQHT-SBEBS.
The scene of yesterday's dreadfnl
catastrophe was visited by hundreds to
day. Every available vehicle in Alton
was pressed into service to convey sight
seers to the destination. Every train
running between the two places waa
crowded, and scores made the distance,
four miles, on foot.
No trace has been found of the runa
way switchman, Richard Gratton.

officials state, will ba between $125,000

New Yobk, lan. 22.—A Berlin cable
says: Tne forerunner of hia imperial
highness, tbe czarewitch, arrived tome
24 hours before the great event material
ise which aeta all Berlin talking.
Stories are going the rounda with refer
ence to the czarewitch that it ia the
I'zar'a desire to make a dicker with the
story its refa~te<l wlifcil the
revival of nihilism:
The St Petersburg central committee
of Nihilists, it ia said, ordered come
three months ago one of their members,
a you'>g aristocrat, noted for his manly
beauty aud refinement of manners, to
engage in an intrigue with tbe wife of
General Browdeinki, a shining light of
the political bouse of the czar, whose
duty it is to watch the international
league of Nihilists and Socialists. The
comrade did honor to the confidence
which his friends extended him,
and ia November he eloped
with the general's wife from St.
Petersburg, tbe woman having
first provided herself with 15,000 roubles
from ber husband's safe. Tbey traveled
through various parts of Europe, stop
ping finally at Pi time. They had no
eooner put up at a hotel when a cipher
diepatcb ordered them to return at once
to Kief. Thie was on January sth. The
Nibiiiet, though thinking it very strange
tbat his comrades bad recalled aim so
quickly and demanded bim to pu\ him
self into immediate danger of capture,
followed the summons, and with tha
general's wife re-entered Russia.
They had no sooner crossed the fron
tier when a number of police officers in
citizens' drese entered their carriage and
informed them that they were prisoners
of the state. Arrived in Kief, tbey were
at once confronted by General Brow
deinki and subjected to a rigid cross
examination. The general'B wife, npon
seeing ber husband, assumed a deter
mined attitude and boldly said: "I am
a Nihilist, and I will not reveal one
single word that I know."
Tbe general tried bis best to move
her. On receiving only defiant answers,
he finally got enraged and drew a sword
and plunged it into his wife's heart,
killing ber instantly. The Nihilist waa
carried off lo St. Petersburg, where he ia
