Finds Two Satchels and a Trunk
Full of Dynamite Bombs.
The Explosives Wore Found in the
Closet of an Anarchist's Room.
Two Years Ago ttio Satchels and Trunk

Itoepor by the Owner,' Who Then
lft for Tnrts Unknown.
Chicago, Sept 81. Two satchels
nnd u largo trunk filled with dynamite
bombs wore discovered by the police
hero Saturday night in the rooms of
an anarchist in a four-story brick
building at the corner of Oak and
Scdgewick streets. The anarchist has
not been seen in Chicago for two years,
but ho left his baggage behind htm
and It was never opened until Sunday.
Two years ago an anarchist named
Bcstmau lived in the Sedgcwick street
house and went away to go to Texas.
Ho owed six mouths' rent on leaving,
and told the landlady that he would
leave ,hls trunk which contained valu
ables. Ever since the trunk, together
with two satchels, have been stored
away and left unmolested In a
closet of the room. In fact it
had been forgotten until Sunday even
ing, when the landlady went Into the
closet looking for another trunk which
contained some winter clothing which
she wished to got. In searching for
tho clothing sho came across the trunk
licit by the anarchist, which sho had
entirely forgotten. It was brought
out, and with tho aid of a hatchet the
lock wus broken and tho trunk opened.
On top of the contents of the trunk were
a few cjothes. These being removed,
a trunkful of dynamite was displayed.
The womun was very much frightened
and at once notified the police. In the
satchels were found several letters
written by Parsons and one or two of
tho other anarchists who wcro execut
ed. Tho whereabouts of tho owner of
the trunk is not known.

A Farmer Taken From Ills Homo nt Night
nnd Cruollr Ilcatcn.
Toledo, O., Sept 21.t The fact was
learned Sundoy thot a brutal whlte
caplng occurred within a few miles of
Toledo ten days ago, but tho region in
which tho outrage took placo is so
terror stricken that no onp dared to
carry any word to tho authorities until
Sunday, morning. A farmer named
Huntsman living near Holland, in this
couuty, was tho victim.
His two children wore returning from
Holland on September 0, when two
men overtook them and accused them
of finding and secreting a pockctbook
containing SSO. This was denied and
the children were searched without
findlng'tho bookl Tho same men went
to Huntsman's house that night and
again insisted that tho book was in tho
possession of tho family. They
finally went away, threatening all
sorts of vengeance. The following
night a band of a dozen or more men
took Huntsman from his bed and boat
him outrageously. That dono he was
strung up for a few moments to a tree.
Ho was then lowered again, beaten
and partially buried. He was then
given a chance to make a statement
and on claiming to be Innocent,
ho was hung up by the heels and again
burled. He was then notified to leave
tho country within 13 hours or die.
The poor man's jaw was broken and ho
was frightfully bruised, but his fear
was so great that he and his family re
mained in the woods without food or
medical attention or the two follow

Of Commissioner of Pensions to
the Secretary of the Interior.
It Shows That 40,874 New Pension
ers Were Added During the Year.

Wasuinqton, Sopt BL Commission
er of. Pppsions Dominie has tu,bmlttcd
to the secretary of tho interior his an
nual report on tho operations of tho
pension bureau for the fiscal year
ended June St, 1890, showing that 40,
371 new pensioners wero added, 8,823
restored who had been previously drop
ped, making a total of 44,217; tho
losses for various reasons, aggregating
44,003. Tho whole number of pension
ers on tlio rolls Juno 30, 1800, was 070,
078. 1 ho commissioner states that it
may now bo safely assumed that tho
roll from this time on will show a
steady diminution unless congress
should enact still more liberal provis
ions. The rate of mortality of pen
sioners, particularly those who berved
through the war of tho rebellion, Is
Disallowances of pensions during
tho year amounted to 97,2S0, most of
whom being applications for increases.
Tho amount disbursed wn'sS138,214,000,
adccrcabc of 81,502.000.
Upon assuming charge of tho bureau
tho commissioner directed that prefer
ences bo given original applicants, giv
ing second place to those whose names
wero already on the rolls, and who are
additional pensioners. The office busi
ness has greatly increased in corre
spondence, which dcl-ys the settle
ment of claims, as it requires a largo
clerical force to answer inquiries.
The amount appropriated for pen
sions payments 8140,000,000 was found
to be more than sufficient. There was
at the close of tho fiscal year an unex
pended balance of SI, 700,000.
The commissioner adopts tho esti
mates of his predecessors for 1808,
namely 8140,000.000 for pensions and
S1.32S.000 for other expenses.
Thepaymcntrof pensioners in check,
the commissioner thinks, is better than
payment in person. In regard to pen
sions payablo in Germany, the stoto
department has been asked for Infot m
ation as to whether If anybody other
than a United States consul can admin
ister.oaths in such cases.
Instructions are now being proparcd
by tho medical referee which will in
sure to every pension applicant tho
benefit of the judgment and experi
ence of three members of the board of
surgeons, except where a claimant ex
pressly waves his right and agrees to
an examination by a less number. It
is intended to detail experts from this
division to visit and instruct the 1,2S5
boards in the country ns to uniformity
of examination in the construction of
medical certificates and to prevent er
rors in rating.
Tho act of January 5, 1893, increas
ing Mexican veterans' pensions from
?S to 812 whose names wero then on
the roll does not, the commissioner
jays, make any provision for the pen
sion ot others whose names might bo
subsequently recorded, and he recom
mends that the 812 increase be granted
to all Mexican survivors who are total
ly disabled nnd in destitute circum
stances. The commissioner also calls atten
tion to the fact that there is no statute
providing a pension to the widows of
the officers who died from causes ori
ginating in the service prior to March
1, lfaOl, during tho time of peace. This
ho thinks, is an inequality in the law
ivhich should bo remedied by congres
sional action. The commissioner
strongly fa.vors the bill now before
:ongress entitled an act to codify and
irrancii the laws relating to pensions.

the early morning. The streets are
thronged, however, but there arc no
new outrages. It is at this hour
charged that the lawnessness Sunday
night was duo to a mob of strikers,
principally from the Couer d'Aline who
have long been breeding trouble in
Leadville, and who, seeing that the
strike was nearing nn end, were de
termined to make a final stroke. This
assertion is largely made by the peace
able miners of the camp. Early Sun
day night there was every evidence
that tho strike was broken.
The urstr attack was made on. the
Coronado. which was blown up. The
memberaofthe mob, which numbered
not over fitty persons, then went
to tho Emmett. Hero they wero re
pulsed. The arrival of the militia is
anxiously awaited,- despito the appar

been sent to tho hills and armed citi
zens are patrolling the streets. The
