A Bomb Hurled at Russell Sago,
the well-known Broker.
Tho ltuthtliiK wrecked, Two Persons

Wnll Street Alarmed.
New Youk, December 1.Ku&ull
Sage, tho millionaiiu broker eeaped
death by a miracle, to-day, his ollieo
ami the entire Empire building, in
which it was, being shaken tit tho very
foundation )y the explosion of it dyna
mite bomb hurled by a crank lho mado
It demand upon Sago for the immediate
payment of $1,250,000, the ultimatum
being in ease of refusal, tho deatli of
the millionaire, the cr.Uik himself and
those employed in the otliee. Never
in the history of the metropolis is it
probable that aij event has occurred
that for the time caused more excite
ment in Wall stieet and lower liroad
w ay. Fully 50,000 people were drawn
to tho Acene of tho e.ploion, and for
ad hour tho kj1Ico were powerless to
bring order out of chaos. It was just
twenty minutes past 2 when the explo
sion came with a force that was abso
lutely startling, completely wrecking
tho second floor of the building, throw
ing pedestrians in the street to the
ground and alarming people for blocks
Those close at haml saw a man
blown through one of the window of
Sage's olllco into Hector street. A
few minutes later Sage himself, with
blood utreamilig down his face and
hand, was helped out into the street
and taken to O'C'onnelPs drug store,
just below Wall street, on llroadwa) .
There, also, was carried the man
blown from the window. Within tun
minutes after the explosion Dr. Munn,
the physician of .hi) Gould, was at the
side of Sage and personally attended
to his injuries, which piwed to be not
of a serious nature. The hair and eye
brows of the millionaire were burned
and his face and bauds were hint by
small particles of glass and plaster, the
result of the explosion.
Sage, though suffering from" the
shock, made tho following .statement
while his wound was being dressed:
"A man who gave tho name nf II. D.
Wilson came to my office just now.
I had never seen him before. He had
a carpet bag in his hand and said: "If
you will not give mo $1,250,000 I will
blow you to pieces." I know nothing
further, except hearing a great explo
sion, falling on tho floor and regaining
consciousness here. The man h ing on
the lloor of tho drug store is, I believe,
the same one who asked me for the
When Sage's wounds wet u dressed
he was taken in a cab to his home.
Outside of the door everything was
confusion. Men lost their heads and
rumors of tho wildest kind lilled tho
air, Twenty men were said to have
been killed and injured, and from the
building the fireman led or cairied tho
dead and injured. Ambulances were
summoned from three hospitals, and
soon tho streets were solidly filled with
a struggling mass of persons all eager
to get to the sceno of tho disaster.
When tho police tu lived in force tho
building was quickly cleared of all per
sons and a search was made in tfio
wrecked offices, ust iusidn of tho
door of thu general office was found
tho trunk of a man in a state that ren
dered recognition near!) impossible,
the head bavin"; been served from tho
body. A pointed redlb bfatd gave
tlio appearand! of an educated man,
which was enhanced by brown curls of
hair and a heavy mustache that adorn
ed the upper jip. When the body was
taken up it was found to have been
torn Into shreds by tho explosion. Tho
interior of tho offices plainly showed
jhijl (he forcf of ho explosion was
something toiTllic, All tlio partition
walls were blown tjown and the sashes
and v indow frames were forced out
ward. Tlio colling had been blown
down null tho ffooj" forced downward,
rendering H tns;ifft to walk upon, Thu
desks and ehaiis wero overturned and
hurled Into (in mtoH'ilhnhlo mass, and
every piece of glass in tlio big air-shaft
that ran to tho roof was shivered.
A search isioky showed that tho
body of tho man with tho pointed beard
was tlio only qiip ijiiinny tlio d.(di. In
the mean time tho crowds in tho street
grolV larger, tjip tiluvated trains from
up tiwn bulging thousands to the
scene, all impelled byeutiosity. For
an hour ciifisioit resigned. Then tho
IWlilT ('I!!:)'? tlp'ty e;uls and something
like a correct (1st of tho killed and In
jured was had. But one man had been
killed ouright, tho man with the point
ed beard. He is supposed to bo II. D.
Wilson,- ljo jjijjn who nuplti tlie uVj
Itiand for tio money front S.tge nntl
throw tho bomb. Benjamin V. Mor
ton, who was thrown through a win
dow, ivas n clerk in tho office. Ho
was removed to tho Chambers-Street
Hospital, where ho died at 1:30 o'clock.
The following; injured were taken to
tho hospital: Frank Hoborson, !i0
years old. clerk for" Imbro & Co., brok
ers, lie was in hago's olllco at tlie
time of the explosion. His skull was
fractured and 'lfv will probably die.
Charles W. Osborn, Sage's cashier, had
his skull fractured, and will probably
die; Samuel J. Calhoun, Who was iu
tho building at tho time, received a
fraeturo of the leg; Col. J. J. Slocum,
a brother-in-law of SagC, and his chief
clerk, was badly cut about the head
and face, and when hi.s wounds wero
dressed returned to tho scene, declar
ing that ho bad left thediornf the safe
open iu)d was fearful Iho securities in it
had been blown out and lost. Quickly
gathering together what he found ho
placed them in a small safe amlhild it
removed to the office of tho Manhattan
Kaihva) Company in tho same build
ing. In the afternoon tho firemen found
among tho debris a leg, thought to bo
that of a woman. Whether it is or
not has not been discovered. Ititssell
Sago never employed a woman type
writer, and as this fact is well estab
lished the supposition is that if tho leg
is that of a woman it is all that's left
of one of his "put and call" customers
who wasiu the office at tho time.
Ititssell Sago saw the head of D. 11.
Wilson, tho man who threw the bomb
and identified , it as belonging to tho
man who had come to his office aud
demanded money. Inspector B)rnes
took the ghastly gory head in a basket
to Mr. Sage's house, and carried it to
Mr. Sage's bedroom. The instant tho
magnate, x ho was lying in bed, saw
the head he said: "That's the held of
Aliiany (Nr. Y.,) December 1. The
dynamite crank is thought to have
been Hiram 1). Wilson, aged 15, an
escaped lunatic" aud a native of Glens
Falls, Warren county. Wilson escap
ed previously from Middletown and
other asylums. The first signs of in
sanity were developed fourteen ) ears
ago, when ho kept tho Bolton House
on Lake George, lie has of late years
talked of making horses go faster than
any have eier gone, and of patent
rights. WiKon after short tcims in
insane asylums, was discharged as
cured, or escaped. Ho generally cele
brated his freedom by attempting to
kill some one who refused to moot his
demands for money.
Several years ago he attempted to
kill a man w bom he had asked for
money to set him up in business.
On another occasion, when W. J.
Arkell was in Albany, Wilson made a
demand on him, threatened to kill him
and oven attempted to assault him in
his office. He had also threatened the
life of Goodwin Brown, one of tho
State Lunacy Commissioners. Wilson
was arrested hero about a ) ear ago for
threatening to kill some on-.
A ICunsns City Theory.
Kansas Cm Dec. 5. By the Asso
ciated Press. There is reason to be
lieve that Hugh Wilson,' late member
of tho real estate firm of Brewster &
Wilson in this city, was tho man who
threw tho bomb at millionaire Sage
yesterdav. Men who knew Wilson say
that the published description of the
would-be assassin is his. Wilson made
considerable money in business here,
but ids friends say that with the col
lapse of tho boom he lost almost ovcry
thidg. About a year ago ho moved to
New York. Persons here aver that
they have lately heard that he has for
the past few months been in straight

ond Congress camo into fotiunl exist

ono of tho most remarkable bodies of
legislators that has ever assembled iu
this country. Of 332 members there
are only 133 why wero members of tho
last congress. There arc 19 t members
who were elected last fall Of this
number l'J have seen previous sen ice
in congress. There are, thotefoiv, 153
men iu this congress who have been
members before and 175 wIm have
never yet been iu the house of repre
sentatives. The Fifty-fiit Congress
contained 170 republicans and 155
democrats. Of these 170, tight were
seated on contests, and to make room
for them eight democrats were unseat
ed. At tho beginning of the session
figures stood, republicans 108, demo
crats 1C3. Tho Fifty-second congress
begins today with 87 republicans and
215 democrats, or Farmer's Alliance
representatives, but there is a differ
ence of opinion as to how many of
these 215 really represent the agricul
tural movement. Only eiht were
elected as distinctively Farmers' Alli
ance men. These are Simpson, Baker,
Davis, Otis and Clover, of Kansas; Ken
of Nebraska; Everett, of Georgia and
Halvorsen, of Minnesota; but besides
thee the Alliance profes-w to .count
on the votes of Hall, of Minnesota;
Winn, Livingston and Moses of Geor

Pams, December 4. Dom Pedro,
late Emperor of Brazil, died at the
Hotel Bedford five minutes after mid
night. His fever had been incroasing
since 7 o'clock in the evenLig, when
Dr. Charcot was summoned hastily
and remained until the end. The
Princess Isabello and her husband, the
Count d'Eu, were also present. The
disease with which the ex-Emperor
suffered was diabetes. It is said that
the last conscious words of Dom Pedro
were an expression of his deep affec
tion for Brazil and regretu that he
could not go back there to die.
Pedro II, Dom Pedro do Alcantara,
ox-Emperor of Brazil was born at Rio
Janeiro, on December 2, 1825. He
was thson of Emperor Pedro I And of
tho Archduchess Leopoldina of Austria.
Ho was less than 5 years old when
disputes between Pedro I and the
Chamber of deputies mado him Empe
ror by tho abdication of his father In
his favor. During his mitority tho
country was governed by a regency.
Tho Chamber of Deputies declared him
to have attained his majoiity iu his
fourteenth year, aud two years later,
on July IS, 1811, ho was crowned
Emperor of Brazil.

an applicant for adiuKsion, but tho
lingering traces of Mormonism will
