Paris, Dec 30. An Explosion at 1:30
yesterday morning in the hall leading to
the suite of offices between the ground
floor and the first story of the prefecture
of police has caused a sensation. The
authorities are not decided as to whether
the explosion was the work of anarchists
or merely an accident caused by a leakage
of gits. An investigation is being held.
The explosion caused no fatality, but win
dows were smashed and wood work dam
aged and a portion of the ceiling brought
down. The police are inclined to attribute
the affair to anarchists, although not de
cided on that point. They think that the
explosion had something to do with the
recent extradition and approaching trial of
Francois, the anarchist accused of connec
tion with the cafe Very explosion.
An AnarchiKt's Triumphant Kemarks.
An anarchist is reported as savins;: "Ah
you thought we were crushed, but we have
enough dynamite left to blow up all the
capitalists. The police have been runnin;
airer rrancoiR as it lie was the only man
cajiable of setiting light to a bomb, but you
will find out differently. We will s-howthe
bourgeoisie tLat if we remain quiet for a
certain length of time we are not dis
armed. 'So lng as human beings die from
hunger by tHr side of those who die from
indigestion te former will avenge them
selves by eveTy means in their power."
A Change of Tarties Noted.
An Italian anarchist passing throueh
Paris is reported ;is saying that the anarch
ists would not attack private houses, "since
it is rarely the victim aimed at that is
touched, and innocent victims are the con
sequence. We will attack public offices to
destroy the records aud terrify the instru
ments of boumeoise rule, and the banks to
destroy capital, and in that way we will
strike a blow-At the bonrgeoise society of
today from vraich it will find it difficult to
Doesn't Approve Bombs.
Citizen Guesde, one of the militant chiefs
of extreme socialism, who took a leading
part in the recent meeting which resolved
upon an appeal to the army and a demons
tration at the Plais Bourbon, has taken
occasion to repudiate sympathy with bomb
methods, while advocating what he calls
the social revolution. There is at present
however, not the slightest evidence that
tne explosion yesterday was caused by an
anarchist bomb, alt bought some of the
anarchists would apparently like to have it
understood that such was the case.
Francois Kcmains Defiant.
Francois is said to lie as defiant in the
French prison as he was in London. He
has been followed here by his alleged wife,
a pretty woman, already under police sur
veillance, and said to be as devoted to the
anarchist cause as Francois himself. Fran
cois is said to have told the juge destruc
tion that if he has to go to the scaffold he
will go singing like Ilavaehol. The author
ities are sat isfied that Francois has been
the leading spirit of the anarchists since
the execution of Ravachol, and no effort
will be spared to bring him to the guillo
PROTECTING BRITISH OFFICIALS.
Detectives Sent to Guard Gladstone Con
LOMiON, uec. d'j. ine autnoritics ap
pear to be strongly convinced that the
Dublin explosion, by which Detective
Synnott lost his life, was part of the work
of a band of conspirators that they have
sent a detective to Biarritz to keep guard
over Gladstone and protect him from out
rage. Gladstone has not been made aware
of the precaution taken, as it is known
(hat he would resent any protection of the
kind should he be aware of it. Home Sec
retary Asquith is also protected when he
goes out m public by a detective in civilian
attire who keeps near enough to interfere
in the event of an attack upon Mr. As
quith. In view of nil the precautions
taken the opinion prevails that the author
itief are in possession of definite and im
portant information n to the existence of
a formidable dynamite conspiraay.
RUSSIAN PERSECUTION OFfJEWS.
A Comlitiou of Tilings Timt s Dixgrace
to the Century.
LoXKOS, Dec. ISO. The latest advices from
St. Petersburg and other parts of Russia
show that the persecution of the Jews and
the inhumanity of the czar's officials toward
that unhappy race are greater than ever
before. Six edicts have been issued aim
iug to disperse the Jewish subjects of Rus
sia, weaken their position and trading cen
tern, and crush out their religion. These
edicts are enlorced with the utmost ri
in many parts of the empire, and with se
verity everywhere. Hie Moscow papers
boast that since thebeginuiugof 1S01 20,000
Jews have been converted to orthodoxy.
Holding Them to the "Fabh."
The unhappy converts, who have been
driven to a j pretended denial of their re.
ligious fattt in ordar to escape intolerable
presecutiim, have been deported to the dis
trict of Tcherkesovo, about five miles from
Moscow. 'JEhere they are rigorously gov
erned by the priests of the Kussian Ortho
dox church; who require them to attend
the services of that church and to comply
with it various rules, watching narrowly for
any sign of evasion or repentanc These
priests have entire supervision of the
wretched colony, and the alleged converts
from Judaism are onlyIlowed leave to re
turn to Moscow upon a certificate from the
priests certifying that the convert holding
such certificate is assured in the faith of
the orthodox church. yAt
io mercy vo um ijukbtl -
'When thus released from ibe ordeal at
Tcherkesovo their troubles are not over.

hould the charge of recantation be estab
lished the usual punishment is deportation
to Siberia. o mercy is shown to any
Jews, no mat ter ho w meritorious, who can
be brought within the scope of the cruel
edicts. Thousands of Jewish working peo
ple have been driven from their employ
ment to become beggars and wanderers.
Old soldiers who wear medals ,for faithful
and galiant service in Russia's army are
treated with as little mer:y as other Jews.
As Bad as Our I -ate Slavery.
Jews are confined to the places of their
birth. They may not even have a single
tie there, and may have been absent a
longer period than an average human life
time; but that makes no difference to the
ussian officials. The old man of 70 or 80
who left his native place when a child
must go back there and be torn from the
arms of his children and his children s

him. The scenes witnessed in consequence
are most piiiful,-and would move, one
would think, even the heart of the Grand

London, Dec. 30. An American who is
described as a young man, 'Si rears old.
and of good appearance, lost at the tables
at Monte Carlo 3,500 belonging to his
mother and which she entrusted to his
are. When the last gold piece was gone
he walked silentlv out of the casino and
hrew himself on the railroad track in
front of an approaching train and was
crushed to death under the wheels.
So Considerate of Tliero.
London, Dec. :0. A dispatch to the
Standard from Moscow savs: "It is re
ported that the ministry of justice has de
cided to exempt female convicts in Siberia
from flogging and from wearing manacles
aud to substitute punishment by restricted
diet and by isolation.
The Grand Old Man Is 84. 1
London, Dec. St). Queen Victoria was
among the earliest to congratulate Rt.
Hon. William E. Gladstone on the arrival
of his eighty-third birthday yesterday.
Her telegram was unusually gracious in
tone. Hundreds of other telegrams and
letters have leen received.
SOLD AT A DISCOUNT.
Columbian Half Dollar Goes Off at
New YoKK, Dec. 30. A well-dressed
man, accompanied by a ladv, boarded
One Hundred and Twenty-hfth street
cable car at Madison avenue. The
car had proceeded about two blocks when
the conductor asked him for his fare. The
man dived down into one of his pockets
and brought forth a shining silver coin.
He held that in his hand long enough to
search through all his other pockets, but
failing to find any other money he handed
it to the conductor. The conductor, aft T
looking the coin over, said scornfully:
'What's this you've given me? Is it some
kind of i new Canadian money? Well, we
don't take it."
Not Good for Car Fare.
The passenger said this coin was a new
Columbian half dollar, and was legal ten
der for its face value, but the conductor
would not accept it. Assistant Fire Mar
shal Frank, who was in the car and over
heard the conversation, offered 75 cents for
the coin and got it. "I paid $1.50 for it,"
said the original owner, with a wry face, as
he explained to Mr. i rank that he had left
his purse in his other clothes.
Secret Organization oi egroe.
CoLCMBCS, Dec, o0. Graham Den well, a
colored lawyer of Columbus and a Demo
crat, claims that the Democratic victory of
last fall was due in large part, in Ohio at
least, to the independent action of colored
Republicans. Mr. Denwell asserts that
secret lodges were organized by colored
Republicans into which neither Democrats
nor "professional negroes" were admitted.
In these lodges the doctrine was taught
that as long as the colored man is a chattel
of any one party he will fail to receive
recognition in politics, and that his polit
ical salvation lies in independent action.
Vnlucky Day for the Falls.
Rum ford Falls, Me., Dec 30. Wednes
day was remarkable in this town for its
list of fatalities. Frank Richards was ter
ribly mangled while sledging rock in which
there was a dynamite cartridge which ex
ploded. William Falvey and Louis Berry,
of Quelec, drank some wood alcohol in
the morning and died in the afternoon.
Thomas Burgess, an old and respected
farmer of Peru, went into the woods with
his axe. 1-ater he was found dead under a
tree he had cut down.

LEONARD BROWN'S NOVEL IDEA.
lie Will Fight Saloons with Women
Des Moines, Dec 30. Leonard Brown is
fighting the proposed disorderly house ordi
nance now pending before the city counciL
Mr. Brown is a Prohibitionist, and he is
proud of it, He has a novel plan to defeat
the alleged purposes of this ordinance, if
it be passed. He stated Wednesday morn
ing that if this law be enacted by the city
council and any saloons started under .,
he would organize a band of 300 or 400
women and supply each of them with
Brown Will Lead the Fair Ones.
Then he would lead the procession
through the streets and they would pelt
the saloon windows with rocks and stones
until every window in every saloon in the
city was demolished. He said they would
have a perfect right to do this and could
defy arrest; that the common law of the
state empowered each and every citizen
with authority to abate a nuisance, and
they would proceed to do so under this
WILL NEVER BE WELL AGAIN.
The Opinion Expressed Regarding Ex
Washington, Dec. 30. "As compared
with previous mornings the one just passed
was the best Mr. Blaine has had since he
was ill. Tonight he is as well as he was
last night." The foregoing statement was
made by Dr. Johnson at 9 o'clock last
night, just after he had returned from a
visit to Mr. Blaine. A call at the Blaine
residence later in the evening brought
forth the statement that Mr. Blaine was
Mowly Improving, but Very III.
. A gentleman who has access to Mr.
Blaine's room said last evening that the
impression Mr. Blaiue made upou him was
about the same ns tnat made upon Mr. J.
H. Manley, of Maine, who saw Mr. Blaine
Wednesday, viz: that Mr. Blaine is siowly
improving, but that he is still very ill.
one will sav that he will ever be well
again. All that can be done is to prolong
his days for a comparatively short time.
