LoNnov, April 0. It is believed in the
best informed circles that tlio sudden activity
of the police authorities regarding
tho use and manufacture of explosive,
which lias resulted in tlio arrests mado
yesterday in London and Birmingham, and
the Ecizuro of n nitro-glycerine factory at
the latter place, is duo rather to representations
made by several foreign governments,
notably by that of Russia, than to
apprehensions of the plots of tlio Irish
Revolutionists. It is known that the Russian
Ambassador has received a dispatch
from St. Petersburg requesting that tho
English Government bo urged to take tho
utmost precautions to prevent the shipment
of explosives from England to that
country during the next three months, or
until after the Czar's corqnation.
In interviews held to-day with several
prominent chemists, explosive which were
particularly liable to spontaneous combustion,
and therefore exploded sooner or
later if left to themselves, were alluded to
as a fearful sottrceof danger, and the imprudence
of giving a full description of
how to make such explosives as published
to the world in the last report of the Government
Inspector was strongly condemned.
One eminent scientist said that Fenians
and incendiaries might apply to Her
Majesty '8 inspectors and obtain every information
for tho manufacture of infernal
machines. According to this report there
wero lactone.. 817 magazines
and 2,015 scores licensed to contain 4.000
pound of explosives, besides no less than
"i.li(i'.) registered premises where explosives
inilit lie kept. Yet the inspectors admitted
that they had only made 3oo inspections.

It allows no justification iu cases

WitiMLiMi, W. Va April 0.A horrible
triple tragedy occurred Inst night at West
Union, on the Baltimore and Ohio railroad,
fifty miles cast of Purkersburg, in
which n, father and two daughters wero
hrutiil'.y murdered and robbed. Three men
have been arrested on suspicion, but the
deed is yet shrouded in mystery. The murder
is supposed to hnc been committed
early iu tho evening. The murdered man
is Harney Doyle, who kept a grocery and
liquor store and resided with his daughters,
nged seven and eleven, under the same
roof. The main living room adjoined and
communicated with the store-room. The
last time the father and children were seen
alive wns about H o'clock, when
(leorgo Cottrell and Arthur Ingle
left the house, leaving a man nannd
Kenney with Doyle, and the girls, who were
in bed. Kenney was fitting1 on tho side of
the bed. About 10 o'clock Kenney rushed
into Mrs. Weekly's, where ho had his washing
done, and requested tho privilege of
changing shirts, after which he left. The
woman having heard a noise in Doyle's
house, went there. Peering through the
window sho observed the carpet on fire,
and gave the alarm. Mr. Hce rushed in,
extinguished the fire, and wns horrified
to find tho bodies of Doyle and the
two innocent girls welterinu in blood.
Doyle wax still alive, but remained unconscious
till 2 a. in., when he died. Tho
youngest girl was dead when found, but
the other was Mill alive, und barely able
to speak. They were all lying together
near tin lire, to which they had apparently
been dragged, and the tiro was inked out on
the caipet with the purpose of burning the
hoii.se, thus hiding all traces. Tho murder
was evidently committed with a heavy
iron poker, as one was, found there with
blood nnd hair on it. From appearances,
the struggle commenced in the Morerooin.
The opinion prevails that tho murder was
eoiiimittcd for the purpose of robbery, i3
Doyle was supposed to have a large sum of
nullify. A strong iron bound chest in
which ho kept the money was split open
with nn edged tool, and stains of blood
were left on the chest. In addition to tho
wounds inflicted on Doyle's head, his urn
wi.s broken, which goos to show that he
made a manly struggle for tho protection
of his gold and his dear little girls.
The wound on tho back of his head was
tho fatal one. The children were beaten to
death in the same cruel manner. The
oldest child rallied sufficiently to say that
Jim Boyd Harper was tho man who struck
her and her father with a poker, but no
further information could bo obtained from
the child, who will, ere this reaches the public,
bo dead. Harper and his father were both
arrested and aro now in jail, but claim that
they can prove an alibi. Kcnnoy was also
nrrosted on suspicion. Great excitement
prevails, and it is difficult to prevent tho
lynohing of the prisoners. Aside from the
theory of robbery, rumors of different mo-tires
aro in circulation, implicating a man
named Weekly, who was once a resident of
the town, and who attempted blackmail
upon Doyle, claiming that he had been
criminally intimate with Mrs. Weeklv,
and prevailed on her to write to Doyle, informing
him that ho was the father
of her unborn child, but proposing to
compromise the matter for $100. The letter
threatened death in case of a refusal on
the part of Doyle. Weekly has openly
charged Doyle wjth ,the crime referred to,
and threatened to kill him. The public considered
the scheme a blackmailing one, as
Doyle has always stood well in that community.
The prevailing opinion is that
these other parties were enlisted by Weekly
in the tragedy, in the hopes of securing
the large: amount of inorioy Doyle was supposed
to ha vein atore in the strong chest.
No jdea ius been formed as to the sum
by the robbers." Weekly has not
been found yet.

Ho went to General Brady and asked an extension

Ho made no ofl'er or piomio of compensation
to General Bntdy for this favor.
' Did you receive a telegram from General

He was about to state the contents of Ms
reply when tho prosecution objected, and
after a half hour's discussion the reply
wns allowed by the Court.
Witness then slated that he replied that
ho would put in operation all the routes of
Miner, Peck and Dorsey.
He quail eled with Doisey in 1878. Their
differences were about certain drafts that
had been hypothecated at a bank for indebtedness.
Afterwards they divided
their routes by lot. Witness took forty, and
Dorsey and Peck thirty. S. W. Dorsey represented
J. W. Dorsey, and tho drawing

Augusta, Ga., April 6. The Democratic
Convention to nominate a candidate for

Janet S. Boy n ton. President of the
Senate and Aoting Governor, and A. O.
Baoon, are prominent candidates. The supporters
of each claim to have the largest

Phil Cook and others will have
a following in the convention.
The contest promises to bo exciting
and is not freo from local foeling.
While a largo number of counties
have instructed their delrgntes for tho
prominont candidates, it is thought noither

majority rules, and a number of counties
have sent tlioir delegaton uninstructcd,
among others Richmond, Wilkes and several

Here ho became excited, and standing up
said iu a loud and decisivo tone: "Yes,

Savannah, April 1, 1883.
Deah Rossa I havo sincere pleasure in
forwarding you a check for $40, subscribed
by a few devoted and practical Irishmen
here. They don't believe it is fooliBh or
wicked to banish the invading robbers
from Iie'and by the most expeditious methods.
As such, they givo a first subscription
to co-operate with you and your compatriots
towards furtlieiing the object. The
farce of agitation, Parliamentary representation
by permission of the enemy, and

Let us try the antidote, a " vigorous
and plentiful application of strong shocks."

Mr. Rossa would say nothing more about
dynamite. He said he was suffering from
the effects of a fall the previous night. He
left Fall River Wednesday night, and took
a berth. In the night the berth fell, and
his neck was considerably hurt. A number
of men who wero nenr by laughed &
good deal, and he suspected it was not an
accident. A friend of his said it was untrue
that any letters of Rossa's had been
found on one of the dynamite agents arrested.
Rossa, while connected with tho
dynamite movement, wns not such a fool as
to commit himself by letters. At 4:13 p. m.
the reporter returned with the. news of tho
arrest of Whitehead and the confiscation
of his nitro-glycerine factory, to ask Mr.
Rossa if it was true, as stated, that Whitehead
is an Irish-American with a marked
" I am through talking." Btiid Mr. Rossn.
" The Supreme Council of the Revolutionary
organization has advised me to talk no
more with reporters. I have nothing to
say." And he positively refused to utter
another rd on the subject. Even refused
to si.,, when he had received the advice.
Ciui'wiu, April 0. As two detectives
were passing along the street this morning
they observed a man start on a run iu the
opposite direction. The officers gave chaso
and succeeded in capturing him. They took
him to the' Central Station. In the detective's
olbce is poied the picture of a man
who is wanted fur tlio murder of a
policeman iu Si. Louis. He gave the iinnio
of Silas Wright, but proved to be John
Shay, who murdered Policeman Wnl.sh in

the police anested a colored barber named
Everett Holmes, upon a lotlcr received from
Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, stating that he had

the arrest he asked lo be taken lo the barber
shop wheni he had been employed. An
officer went with him. As as Holmes
entered the shop, he deliberately took a
razor and cut his throat several times in a
frightful manner. He fell to thei tloor
bleeding, and only said that ho would die
before he would go to prison. Holmes died
in a short time.
