CalcvTTA, March SI. Dispatches from
Wan Jala J-, the capital of Burmah, say
that fire has been raging there since 11
o'clock Tuesday niht. Three-fourths of
the city is now in ashes, and the fire has
not been checked. Among the buildings
already gone are the old palace, the new
government telegraph office, and two con
vents. The whole business portion of the
city has been swept away. The loss of life
has been about UiO, and 2.500 persons have

Thousands Likely to Die.
Chief Secretary Symes telegraphs that
thousands will die unless food and medi
cine for the injured are sent at once. The
residence of Sir Alexander McKenzie.chief
commissioner, was burned and two of his
servants were mortally injured. There is
no provision against tire in the city, and
the people did not wait to fight it, but fled
panic-stricken before it. The road to
Amarapura is crowded with fugitives, who
will seek help in that city. The suffering
will be intense, as the rest of the city
will be destroyed before the fire is out, aud
about 23,0(10 families will be homeless.
WATCHING THE REDS AT LONDON.
Talk of KefiiNlnK AnarrhUts AhyIiiui in
London, March 31. The Scotland Yard
authorities received word from Paris yes
terday that forty anarchists expelled from
France yesterday on account of the recent
dynamite outrages in the French capital
were nearly all making for England. The
dispatches gave the name of the suspects,
with their descriptions and told what
trains they had taken. Some had started
by way of Belgium, others by way of
Dieppe, others by way of Havre and oth
ers by way of the Channel islands. Chief
Anderson, of the criminal investigation
department, hurried to the home office
and consulted with Secretary Matthews
and other high functionaries as to the best
method of dealing with this invasion of
Will Shadow Them from the Start.
Upon returning to Scotland Yard hecon
fered with his assistants, and perfected ar
rangements to have all the ports at which
the anarchist travelers were likely to land
watcbefl by detectives, who will shadow
the unwelcome immigrants from the time
they Bel foot upon English soil until they
reach London and take up permanent quar
ters. The government has determined
upon a system of registration for sus
picious foreign residents of London, so
that the police can keep close watch on
such people. It is the intention to arrest
every person known to belong to the an
archist following at the very first explosion
or other outrage in London.
Anarchists Better Look Out.
No doubt is entertained that some such
outrage wlj- be committed, though it is
strange that the enemies of the existing
order should by this means imperil their
only refuge in Europe, except Switzerland.
Even Switzerland is debating the question
of restricting the privileges she has always
heretofore granted in the matter of domi
cile to foreign political criminals of every
class. There is a strong feeling among the
English Conservatives, which is also
shared by a number of Liberals, in favor
of exclading the anarchists from this coun
try, though to do so would break up a long
Standing tradition of toleration.
Chicago Isn't Very Safe.
It is learned that already great precau
tions are being exercised in the guarding
of all public buildings against any at
tempt at wrecking. Home Secretary Mat
thews recently conferred with the law offi
cers of the crown as to the propriety of
prosecuting certain inflammatory weekly
papers, chiefly foreign organs, printed in
London aud circulated mainly on the con
tinent. It is understood that steps will
be taken to begin legal proceedings. The
London police state that the anarchists do
not regard New York as a safe place of res
idence for them nowadays. They are not
likely to take up their quarters in Amer
ica unless the British government decides
to refuse them a refuge in London. If
driven out of England they will probably
go to Chicago.
GREAT EXCITEMENT AT PARIS.
Foreigners Asking for Guarantees of
Safety Police Hard at Work.
TAltlS, March 31. The anarchist excite
ment is greater than ever. Foreigners liv
ing in the St. Germain quarter have sent
a delegation to the district mayor asking
whether he could guarantee their safety.
This official assured them that the most
. energetic measures were being taken, and
that foreigners residing in Paris had noth
ing to fear. Some foreigners, however, do
not quite see how his assurances of com
plete security can be correct, because none
of the authors of the present or previous
dynamite outrages has been arrested, and
there is - nothing to guarantee them
against being in a house where reckless
anarchists may be staying.
Giving Out Search Warrants.
The entire force of the Paris police is
now alert and actively engaged in ferreting
out the origin of the dynamite outrages.
At 5 a. m. yesterday thirty -five police com
missioners were suppiie.l witn searcn
warrants : or tlieir various districts. It is
particularly in the suburbs of Paris, and
especially in the St. Denis, St. Ouen and
Patitiu quarters where the search has been
and is bein directed. St. Denis has per
haps the m jst odious reputation of all. It
is n quarter where during the last year
them have been many irritating anti
patriotic disturbances, and anarchists
hide in its heap lodging houses in greater
numbers th in elsewhere.
What One liomb Could Do.
Special w atch is kept over the Palais de
L'Industrie, which is filling up with pict
ures and st it ues destined to figure in the
coming salon. It is feared that an at
tempt may be made there during the draw
ing of the cjnscription. Nothing would,
indeed, be easier than for an anarchist to
mix in the crowd of young men and throw
a lxrub whi :h, considering the large quan
tity of inflammable material in the Palais
de L'Industrie, might result in the com
plete destruction of the building and iti
valuable cot. tents.
Trattic in Deadly Explosives.
A singular fact is that some anarchists
are said to le making a traffic of the dead
ly explosives-in their possession, and per
sons whom i hey can trust can readily buy
a bomb. This opens a tempting oppor
tunity to pei-sous inclined to revenge, and
f here is no doubt that some of the out
rages attribi. ted to anarchists are reallv
acts of priva e vengeance for real or imag

Paws, March The report of an ex
plosion in the building of theCredit Lyon
nai.se was gr.-atly exaggerated by rumor.
It appears up in careful examination that
there was n thing more than a slight ex

the news spread like wildfire that the
anarchists were carrying out their threiits
of attacking the banking institutions, and
that much damage had beeu done to the
BURIAL OF WALT WHITMAN.
Five Thousand I'eople Attend the Serv
ices IncersoU's Address.
Campkn, N. J., March 81. The remains
of Walt Whitman, the poet, were interred
yesterday afu moon in his tomb at liar
leigh cemetery, after funeral set vices that
were broad enough to include pretty
much everything in belief or unbe
lief, from a selection from the
New Testament git ing the words of the
Savior concert in g death, and others from
Esther in th-i Old Testament and from
Plato, to a brilliant address from the
champion of negation Koliert J. Ingersoll.
According to t he request of Whitman him
self, there was no clergyman present.
Programme of the Service.
Thsre were a,!) persons at the ceuie'
tery, where a tent had been erected which
would not hold a fifth of them. The
services opened with Whitman's "Death
Carol." There was an address on Whit
man's life by Thos. B. Harned. The next
thing was extracts from the writings of
Confucius, Buddha, the Koran and Isaiah.
Then followed selections from the New
Testament an 1 Plato, and theu the ad
dress by Colt Del Ingersoll. Among the
floral gifts was a laurel wreath "In the
name of Sir Edwin Arnold."
Stediuan's Poetical Farewell.
Edmund Clarence Stedman sent a
wreath of ivy with the following lines:
Good-bye from till you loved on earth,
ltui-k, tree, duni creature, man and woman.
To you. I ln-ir comrade human.
Tie last assa lit.
Ends now; aud now, iu some great world has
A minstrel, whose strong soul bus broader
More brave imaginings.
Stars crown the iil.ti;i here your dust shall
Even us we say, ood-1 ye.
GtMKi-bye. oid VTult."
Col. li gerHull Address.
Colonel Ingersoll said: "Again, we, in
the mystery of life, are brought face to
face with the mystery of death. A great
man a great A mericun the most eminent
citizen of this republic is dead before us."
He then said that Whitman was so great
that be rose above the greatest without
arrogance. His sympathies were for all.
Even on the brow of crime he placed the
kiss of sympathy and said "Not until the
sun excludes yo i do 1 exclude you," which,
the speaker sai 1, was one of the greatest
lines in literatu -e. He was the poet of di
vine democracy, of life, of love, of the
natural, and o!' the human race every
where. He was also the poet of death.
AVhitmai not an Agnostic.
In Mr. Harnetl's address he said of Mr.
Whiman's religious belief: "I deem it
my duty to mention two important facts
one, his posit ve belief in immortality
and the other his fearlessness of death.
With him immortality was not a hope, or
a beautiful dreiim. He believed that he
lived in an etern il universe, and that man
was as indestructible as his creator."

bill providing for the transfer of the
revenue cutter service from the treasury
department to t ie navy department was

ments. The committee adopted all the

WASHINGTON, March 31. A favorable
report from the postofiice committee was
made to the senai e yesterday on the bill to
employ mail collectors at free delivery
offices at $000 per year. Union soldiers
and sailors of the late war are made eligi
ble and are exempted by the.bill from civil

IYXCIIED A BRUTE.
Findlay, 0., the Scene of a Mob
A IflSCEEANT GIVEN SHOBT SHEIFT
Strung I'p Once Some One Shoots the
Hope in Two Dragged by the Neck to
Another riace by "Best Citizens,"
Ranged and His Body Riddled with
Itnlleta Account of the Bloody Crime
that Resulted in the Lawlessness Wife
and Daughters Butchered.
Findlay, O., March SL Joseph Lyttle,
the man who, at 5 o'clock yesterday morn
ing, hacked his wife and two daughters in
a horrible manner, was taken from the
county jail here at 12:50 this morning by a
mob of nearly 1,000 determined men and
hanged. The mob broke in the windows
of the jail but were unable to reach
Lyttle's cell by that route, and finally the
doors were battered down with oil well
drills and Lyttle was seized. He was taken
to the bridge about two squares distant
and strung up to an iron crosspiece of the
Shot the Rope in Two.
Just as he was being pulled up a shot
from a revolver rvig out on the night air,
and the rope was shot in two, dropping
the victim to the ground. He was then
hurriedly taken to the nearest telegraph
pole, where the lynching was completed,
Lyttle dying without a struggle. It was
the intention of the authorities to sileutly
convey Lyttle to a suburb in a carriage at
I o'clock this morning, and from there
take a train for Lima for safe keeping, but
were frustrated by the determined efforts
of the lynchers.
Lyttle Expected the Lynchers.
Lyttle evidently anticipated death, for
he left a note asking that his body be
turned over to his brother with the re
quest that he be buried beside his mother.
As the mob entered the jail I.yttle called
their attention to the cell he was occupy
ing as the one they were looking for. It
took thirty minutes to batter down the
cell door, when the doomed man was
dragged out and thence to the Main street
bridge. After the first attempt was made
to hang Lyttle he was dragged by the neck
through the street to the futal telegraph
Always the "Best Citizens."
Shots from two score revolvers were fired
into the lifeless body. The mob is said to
have been composed of the best citizens,
but was poorly organized and lacking a
leader. The body is still hanging await
ing the arrival of the coroner, the mob
having dispersed immediately after the
BRUTAL CRIME OF THE VICTIM.
With a Hatchet He Butchers liis Wife
The crime for which Lyttle was lynched
was a most brutal one. Lyttle is an old
soldier whose wife obtained a divorce from
him some time ago on the ground of cru
elty. He went to the Soldiers' home at
Dayton, but returned Sunday night and
tried to get his wife to live with him
again, aud she permitted him to stay at
the house a few days. His ,rown daughv4
lers were Ditterly opposed to this move,
and this Lyttle resented and threatened to
kill the girls if his plans were interfered
An Account of the Slaughter.
Tuesday night, after a wrangle of this
character, the old man went up-stairs to
bed, but got up about 6 o'clock yesterday
morning, and going to the kitchen got a
hatchet and attacked his daughter Delia
as she came into the room, splitting her
skull and mutilating her head horribly.
The eldest daughter, Emma, came to her
sister's rescue, and met the same fate, be
ing frightfully injured, but is yet alive.
The mother, hearing the affray, came into
the room. Lyttle began cutting her head
with his hatchet, inflicting six ghastly
wounds, which will prove fatal, although
the woman is yet alive.
His Life a Long Story or Crime.
Lyttle has served one term in the peni
tentiary for inhumanly treating a child.
His whole life has been one long story of
cruel'y to his family and all with whom
he came in contact. Mrs. Lyttle and her
youngest daughter cannot possibly live,
but Emma, the eldest daughter, will pos
sibly survive her fatal injuries. Lyttle
confessed that he came home from the
Soldiers' home on purpose to kill his
