MACHINE THAT ltl THE WORK
Same a the One That Killed Two Men in

Cripple Creek, Col., June 7.
The infernal machine with vliich
the diabolical work was done consist
ed of a quantity of dynamite, esti
mated at l n to :;(M pounds, a loaded
revolver, and a long. slender, steel wire
ran from under the station to the crib
bing of the Dehnonico property, about
400 feet away, where its end was fas
tened to a rung of a chair. The dyna
mite was placed close to the muzzle
of the revolver, which was discharged
by pulling the wire when the engineer
blew ids whistle. The ball from the
revolver exploded the dynamite.
A man was seen running down tbe
hill from the Delmonico after the ex
plosion. The Victor troops, who were
ordered out by Mayor French, were sn
stationed as to keep people from pass
injr over the path taken by this man,
and bloodhounds were sent from Can
on City and Trinidad for the purpooi
of trailing the assassin. The infernal
machine used was similar to the one
exploded in tbe Vindicator mine on
Nov. 21, l!Hi.0. killing two men.
By order of Mayor II . A. Nay
tor. of the National Guard, the hodien
were removed from the coroner's es

This action was taken on request of

men was due to an accident. Later,

NORWAY'S MAELSTROM ON
THE PIKE AT WORLD'S FAIR
Juggling with water to the amount
of ."0.000 gallons a minute is the feat
that the originators of the Magic
Whirlpool have carried into comple
tion on the Pike at the St. Louis
worlds fair. In this amusement fea
ture which is really a reproduction of
of the Norway Maelstrom without the
final plunge into oblivion, the person
who embarks on the boat is sent three
times around the edge of a waterfall
ant! then into the whirlpool proper
where every turn brings him near the
centra fountain into which he seems
certain to he lilunued.
Turning aside from the danger at
the lasi moment the boat passes into
the enchanted lake where scenes from
the oriental glory f the Arabian
Nights U eclipsed by a fairy scene
glowing with soft lights whose chang
ing effect.- soothe rather than dazzle
the eye of the voyager. Scenes from
famuli- events of bistorv and tableaux
from errand opera follow in ranid suc
cession, tin harmoniously blended to
produce a general effect of magnifi
cence rattier than detached units.
Every artifice of makers of modern
illusions is used to mvstifv the t rav
er. Figures 'that appear before the
boat and then vanish or throuirh which
the boat cuts its wav as thouirh thin
tic are among the less startling fea
tures of tin- journey. While some of
the tableaux tire aw insoirinir, none
f them has the slightest taint of the
