How the Anarchist H Plot was
CHICAGO, July 17.-About ton
days ugo a prominent Bohemian
called on Inspector Bonlhihl mut
informed h i m Huit a plot was on
foot, tho object of which was to
avon go tho (loath Of (Spies, Harsons,
ot al,, by blowing up with dynamite
tho residences of Julius (5, Grin
nell, who was Slate attorney when
I he anarchists wore tried; Judge
CJnry, who was presiding Judge,
and also tlie residence of Inspector
Bonfield, wno had hoon tho prime
mover in tho ai resin which billow
ed tho HaymarkotfatTatr, and who
furnished most of tho evidence
which brought four of tho principals
to thc gallows, torced another Into
a suicide's grave and sent three oth
ers to Joliot. Thc inspector was
not slow in aiding upon thc tip thus
given, ?ind hy careful shadowing
tu) other skillful'detective work
succeeded in weaving ?1 web, as he
claims, ot incontcstiblo buds about
at least throe men, ami arrested
them this morning, Tho name ol'
the ring leader is John Ilronock,
mid ho lives ?it 2052 Farrell street.
Ile isa Bohemian and a cabinet
maker by trade? Another man is

living on Zion place,and who is thc
informer who told thu story of the
plot lo thu Bohemian, who In turn,
detailed it to Inspector Bonfield.
lt seems that since Hie. execution,
a movement wnfc started muong
thc lol lowers of revolution and
chaos in Chicago, hy which tho
groups which disbanded almost as I
soon us the market bomb burst,
wore to bo re-organized. It ap
pears lo do business nt tho Old
stand. It was thought dangerous,
in the light of past events, to havo
these groups composed of an unlim
ited number because it would in
crease tho possibility of informers
making their appearances nt tho
meot.crilieal periods, when silence
was very golden. Lt was concluded
thal each group us reorganized was
to have no more than three mem
bers with ench of Hie three mom
bo rs well acquainted with Hie oili
er members who composed the
group. When Hms formed, it was
though! Hint "squealing in , .ie An
archist muka in tho future would
become a lost art." The three men
arrested to day constitute a group,
and in tho hands of these was loft
by whom lt is not yid known, thu
Occupation Of blowing up residen
ces until the net of Inst November
was considered tully wiped out in1
Inspector Bonfield was to be re
moved. Ile was tho third one on
the list, ami lie was doomed to die
with the olhers, hilt how was not
fully decided upon. The plot had
nnule rapid advancement, for on
July lib, Ilronock detailed himself
to examine tin? premises of Judge
Uri .moll's bouse in Aldo no square,
with a view to its occupants.
"When my Josiah and me lirst
married," said she, "I'dO an idea
that he hadn't n fault in the ?, orld.
I wouldn't lunn* to any (liing bul
that he hadn't a faull in the world.
I wouldn't hear to anything bul
that he wm: perfect, untl.he tbought
tho same of me.
"1 le just thought, Josiah did, that
he'd drawn one of thom Impossible
prizes in the lottery of inuiriniony
-a woman without a fault.
"Well, by the time he'd gone
through two or throe housekeeping
scrapes, a taking up and putting
down carpets, ?iud setting up and
tearing down stoves, and all that
sort ol' thing, to say nothing of 'blue
Monday,' wash day, and tooth ache
that lasted three days at a time
time we'd gone through all that,
Josiah had found out timi 1 wasn't
quite an nnpol, an I'd discovorod
t hat ho could do and say t biogs t he
saints would skeersly du timi say.
"And OHO da,y in ono of my pen

tho person you thought 1 wa; ?am
I, Josiah'.' 1 ain't I 111 If AS good and
sweet ns you thought I'd be.'
"Wo wus nt tlie dinner table
when 1 said il, and there wus a big
dish ol' boitUtlful boney in the comb
on tlie table.
Josiah says, says, says he, "Ml*
rnmly, I like honey ns well as any
man living likes it, and you like it,
too, but if WO bad to eat it three
tintes a day for even six months,
we'd gel Hodcsprltly sick of it we'd
never want to hoar the word 'hon*

tho spice of life, sure enough."
"A most married fol lc J, 1 take no

day and they've variety enough to
make, lifo luterestln."
