A CASE OF POEtIC JUSTICE.
Hotel Blown Up-The Dynamiter Himself
The Only Victim-Marvellous Escape of
the Proprietor of the Golden Eiagle,
on the Corner of New Jersey Av. -
nue and DStreer, Washington,
D. L.,hia Family and Ou' NtN.
shingt',n, September 25.-The
.'t .igl Hotel, on the corner
o. 4-w Jersey avenue and D. street,
was dyuaniittd 'h ; :norning at 4 30'
oiuck by Frank McKie, one of the
gie' , who subEequently committed
sc'ic-. Between twenty and thirty
gutEs, were thrown from their beds
by,, h-> expiosion, but only the pro
p.ewr, L:uis Brandt, and his wife
were irjrt d. The roof of the build
ing was blown off and the falling
wreckt;ge crashed through to the
basement, leaving the structure as if
wrecked by a tornado. Every pane
of glass in the building and the ad
joining structures was broken. The
explosion called out the fire depart
The affair is involved in some
mystery. The proprietor gave a
banquet last night in honor of his
wife, who had just returned from
Gtrmany, and McKie was a guest.
McKie boarded at the hotel for
four years and had been treated as a
member of the Brand family, which
includes a daughter, Sophie, with
whom McKie is said to have been in
love. Brandt denies that there was
any understanding between the two.
McKie remarked last night that he
was going to wait until Sophie re
turned from Germany with her
mother, and then he was going to his
old home in Philadelphia. Mrs.
Brandt and her daughter returned
about 8 o'clock last night. The at
tempt at wholesale murder followed
this morning. McKie with a pistol
in his hand was seen by an employee
of a lunch room opposite the hotel
just. before the shots were fired.
When the explosion ocenrre d a slight
blaze sprang from the debris, but it
was quickly extinguishe~d by the fire
depart-nent. Brandt and his wife
were quickly rescued before many of
the thirty guests of the establish
ment bad reached the part of the
building in which MeKie's room was
located. McKie, with revolver in
his hand, was found lying on the
floor with his head in a pool of blood.
k bullet hole near the right ear had
d instant death. Brandt was
w e abo'nt the body and shaken
?[adly and received a severe cut
on the hg. Mro .irandt sustained
br uises about the body and a cut
h... When the wrecked building
was sear ched today enough dynamite
a a found i McKie's trunk to wreck
a : ack of buildings. There were
six whnole sticks and part of two or
t'.ree o.rd'en sticks, together with a
btox of caps and a quantity of wire
f...r long distance explosion. He had
had at let nine sticks of dynamite
in his possession.
McKie was about 28 years old.
He 'was form.~erly of Philadelphia and
had relatives in Chicago. His
brother, Harry McKie, was killed in
Ohicago last year, according to a
telAgraml found in the dead man's
voom today. McKie was a niacbin
ist in the navy yard here, but re
signed on inheriting upwards of
$20,000 about four years ago. This
amount he is said to have lost on the
races and his act is accredited by
some to this loss. Detectives are in
vestigating the case today.

[From the Chicago Tribune.]
Over-crowding is the motto of the
day. The factories are over crowded;
the theatres are over-crowded the
tenements are over-crowded. The
only reason why one does not say
that the street cars are over-crowded
is that they are somelning worse. All
such over-crowdings, however, are
sparsene=s and loneliness compared
with the over crowding of the Bar.
In 1890 there were 58 law schools,
with 6,0~73 students. Now, accord
ing to an estimate made by Prof.
Hnffcutt, of Cornell, there are 120
schools, with 14,000 students. Mean
while the number of full fledged
law) ers in the United States is said
by the last census to be about 114,
000. No other profession, with the
exception of teaching and of medi
cine, is so populous.
Select specimens of you choicest
grains, vegetables, finely bred stock,
including poultry, for exhibition at
the State Fair. A little effort on
your part will secure one or more of
the andsome presents.
