London, Sept. 1C. More attention is
being paid to the details of the alleged
dynamite conspiracy than any other
subject, not excepting the situation in
Turkey. Those who do not participate
in the horror professed by the author
ities over the diabolical details of the
plot which they are claiming with sen
sational inipressiveness to have un
earthed find ouflU'lent entertainment in
the expression of their skenticism. A
preventative of the Associated Press
lias made some inquiries at Scotland
lard as to the methods pursued in
shadowing the !".otters. and as to how
it hapiiened thkt the authorities were
so well informed of the clans of the
lotters in advance, it was stated
there that the wwrk had been done in
the I'nited States by the Pinkerton
agency, who hid for years forwarded
ever- week the fullest reports of every
meevtitii; of any revolutionary body in
the fnited States, particularly in Chi
cago nnd New York. The espionage
maintained on fratherinRS in those two
cities is remarkably complete.

taining to the patheriiiKS and full de

lice in these cases was precipitated by
the heavy drinking and foolish talking
of Tynan, there has been the greatest
possible activity on their part since, in
order to round an the minor Plotters

It is a note.ble fact that the police
authorirlea of Paris express creat scorn
for the idoa that there was anv con
nection l-ctween any plot that Tvnan
may have concocted and an attempt
upon th llf- of the czar. The elab
orate tale of collusion between the
Fenians and the continental anarchists
and i:tiFslnn nihilists is lauRhed at in
Pnris. although the authorities of Scot
land Yard are usinir this story as much
ns they possibly tan in order to in-
tluenee the French authorities to sur
render Tynan. The suspicion is broad

person of the czar was concocted for
no other purpose than to appeal to
political sympathy of France to-

ALEXANDER SULLIVAN ARRESTED.

New York. Sept. lfi. The World this
inclining says: It was rumored late
ia-st night that Alexander Sullivan, of
Chicago, whose name figured so con
spicuously though indefinitely in the
Cronin murder case, had been arrested
in Paris at the instance. of the Eng
lish police. In connection with the ru
mor The World's Chier.gi correspon
dent telegraphed the following: "Alex
ander Sullivan went abroad two months
ago to Carlsbad, so it is said. Satur
day night last his wife. Margaret Sul
livan, was stricken with apoplexy and
now is Very ill. She said that he was
to have sailed yesterday from Bremen.
"She cannot lie swi. Nothing definite
is known here, though it is rumored
that Sullivan is in trouble. The be
lief is that Mrs. Sullivan's attack was
caused by some distressing news con
tained in a cablegram. It is said by
Irishmen here that Sullivan would not
have gone into any dynamiting scheme
now. It is possible that he may have
been arrested on the theory that he
was an Irish Invincible, bet there is
no evidence that he was even remote
ly connected with the Invincihles."
