boomers, after hearing Captain Couch's re
port of the mission to Washington, grum
bled a good deal at his advice to disperse,
but finally adopted the report which was to
the effect that the President had promised
to drhe the cattlemen out of the Territory,
nd to see that negotiations were opened
with the Indians for the purpose of secur
ing the land for homestead settlement as
provided by act of Congress. The following
resolutions were adopted:
Bunlvril, That In order to aid the National
administration to carry out the aforesaid
measure In good faltb, and to solve tbe
problem of settlemeat or Oklahoma, as soon
as practicable, wo doem It advisable to wait
for a reasonable time the contemplated
Itrmlved, That tho headquarters of the colo
nist shall remain at Arkansas OUy until a
more sultablo place can be secured bjr tbe
officers of I he colonists.
Immediately after Uie meeting prepara
tions for iemoal began and It Is thought
that within forty-eight hours at least, two
third of the colonists will have departed.
They atcept the situation quIeUy, but aay
they will again be ready to take the field
whenever Captain Couch calls upon them.
PrrrsBUBOii, April 84. A terrible lira
broke out In the saloon of Thomas Murphy,
In bharpsburg, a suburb of this city, yester
day afternoon. The Pittsburgh and Alle
gl.cny fire departments were summoned, but
before the fire was gotten under control fif
teen buildings were consumed and about
twciity-fhe more badly damaged. Many of
the houses were occupied by more than one
family. The loss will reach and probably
exceed 8100,000. The Insurance cannot be
estimated at this hour. Many of Uie In
mates of the burned buildings had narrow
escaiies. but so far as can be learned no one
Mi seriously Injuicd. The Catholic Church

Knlrrtiilned Agalnut AmlataaS
jOKDoiv, April 21. Much consternation
was caused throughout tho city )esterday
morning by the report that tho Admiralty
Office had been blown up. Investigation
proved tho rexrt was much exaggerated. A
package containing a quantity of dynaintU
Is supioscd to hav e been placed against ths
wall of the building directly under the So
licitor's office and set off by a slow fuse and
other contrivances. Tho building was bad
ly shaken up and all the windows were
broken. In Mr. Swainson' s office not a
Whole pane of glass remained. Hu and hit
clerks were dashed to the, floor by the con
cussion. Mr. Swainson was seriously hurt
The others escaped with slight Injuries.
The explosion was heard for a long dis
tance and oile lushed to tho vicinity ol
the Admiralty building, exacting to find ij
In ruins. A strong force of xIlce and mili
tary were placed on guaid and no one w at
allowed to nppiiMLh tho building. The
authorities were vigorously Investigating,
with the hope of obtaining a clue to the
The officials aro In a quandary and seem
to be unable to account for tho explosion.
They now confess that they do not know
whether it was caused by djnamlte, gun
powder or gljccrlne.
Immcdlatcl) after the explosion the police
set to woik to discover Its cause. Allen
trances to the building were Immediately
closed and no ono was permitted to pass In
or out The name and addiess of every
person In the structure at the time of the
explosion were then taken as they left the
building. The police Incline to the belief
that the explosion was the work of some ol
tho same gang of dviiauilters who caused
the explosion In the Tower and Parliament
buildings In .lanu.uy last.
The phjslclans who called to attend Mr.
Swainson say that ho Is sutfertng from con
cussion of the brain, and that his Injuries
will probably prnvn fatal.
Tho greatest excitement prevailed In and
around tho building. The officials were
At the time of the explosion the sun was
shining brightly and the business of the day
was winy miner way. it is considered
miraculous that so few persons were injured,
as long Hid s of people weie constantly pas
sing in and out
Miss Mary Anderson wos breakfasting
with Mr. Gladstone's family when the ex
plosion occurred, and all present were much
alarmed by the dcton iticui, fearing that
some terrible disaster had occurred.
The latest developments Iu regard to the
e-.ploslon point to tho belief that it was tho
result of a deep laid plot of the. djnamlte
fiends. Several iiersnns have already called
on the police and informed them that two
strangers were observed riconnoltering the
building the evening before. Two officials
also testified that they had seen two men
yesteiday morning approach the building
from the Horse Guard parade giouuds,
earning a tin can, which they placed in a
recess In the main possago to the building.
When asked why they did not take thein
Into custody the officers stated that they be
lieved them to be workmen and attached
but little Importance to their movement.
Workmen hav o been recently employed
In the building making lepAirs and assisting
some survejors who were taking measur
menta in and around the grounds. The
officers say they can fully Identify the men.
Many of the rooms in tho building were
totally wrecked. 'I here was only one ex
plosion. The Chief of the .Scotland Yaid
detectives, and the Admiralty officials held
a long consultation. Mr. Swainson, the In
jured man, Is the Sollcitorof thoAdniiralty.
The passage In w hich the explosion oc
tal r red Is the ono usually used by the Duke
of Edinburgh. When not at his county seat
it Is the duty ot his llns.il Highness to show
himself at the Admiralty every morning,
and he generally walks over at a rapid pace
alone, when in town, and enters by the hall
now the scene of the vv reck.
Tho time selected for the explosion. If It
really was the result of a design, was ths
hour at which most of the Lords of the Ad
miralty might bo exiiected to arrive in pre
paration for the morning board meeting,
the business of tho Lords being very heavy
and urgent in consequence of the extensive
war preparations ordered by the Govern
ment and the large number of iron-clads to
be madfl ready for commission. The Lords'
board room Is only a few jards distant from
the spot where the explosion took place and
adjoining the public offices, communicating
Hut a few pace3 from the entrance, where
the cans were deposited in the west-wing,
is the official residence of the First Lord of
the Admiralty. Tho passage by w hlch the
suspected djnamlters entered tho building
Is In full view of the Prime Minister's pri
vate rooms, at No. 10 Downing Street, and
not fifty yards below the scene of the explo
sion, a sentry of the Guards was passing
bvtfront ot the Guards' barracks
The east-wing of the Horse Guards, occu
pied by the troops furnishing guard at the
main gateway to St James Park, adjoins
the west-wing of the Admiralty, and within
a few yards of the explosion, divided only
by a stone-wall and a tier of offices, are
the horse stables and the quarters of the
troopers. There were iollca on duty in the
park, In the rear of tho Admiralty, and the
rear of Mr. Gladstone's, and in the court
way, in front of the Admiralty, fouror4ve
doorkeepers at the main entrance, a keeper
at the end ot the hall, close to Mr. Swain
son's office, and also ono at the foot of the
staircase leading to the office of the Admiral
on duty and the principal secretaries and
The police officials now suspect that the
explosion in the Admiralty building was the
result of malice entertained against Mr. Ed
ward N. Swainson, the assistant secretary,
by some of the emplojes. Swainson is very
much disliked because of his strictness, and
It Is now believed that some ono of the em-
Bloyes, ialiorlng under fancied wrong, took
lis means of avenging It The otlkialssay
that as a result of their Investigation they
are now sure that an lufi rn.il machine con
taining either ihinmlto or gun cotton, was
placed In a book-case fastened to the wall
directly over Swalnson's head, and there is
where the explosion occurred. In support
f their theory that tho machine was placed
there by some of tho employes, the detec
tives say that no stranger could have passed
the janitor, who Is stationed at the entrance
of the office, without being accosted as to
the nature of his business.
Some Influential journals advocate the
passage of an act providing that persons
causing explosions by djnamlte with Intent
to malm or kill shall suffer death by hang
ing. Some of tho papers are uncharitable
enough to comment upon the fact that tha
Admiralty offico Is the most notorious of all
the departments for its Inertness and ted-
