It Is very evident that tho nmirehlsts, or whoever it. was who stole tho dynamite cartridges from tho Soiuo quarries, aro endeavoring to Innugurnte a reign of terror in this city, mid, to judge from tho consternation that provul s in certain quarter, il is nlao evident that they Bra succeeding. It does not, of con rat, follow that all the explosions that have recently oc curred were caused by these stolen cartridges, but there Is no doubt that the anarchists have a large quantity of dynamite that the police in their ruids have not succeeding In capturing. At 1:25 o'clock this morning a ferritin explosion occurred at the Lobuu bar racks, occupio I by tho "Republican guard," nd joining the Hotel do Villo. In a moment a scene of tho wildest ex citement prevailed. The barracks uro occupied by 800 guards, but they wero not ull in tho building. There were, however, a largo number of people In the barracks. Suddenly nwnkened by tho tremendous roar and shock that seemed t threaten tho demolition of tho structure, tho men sprang through tho windows, thinking that any mo ment tho walls would como toppling down upon them. The people who were in the streets at that early hour hastened to the scene. and the streets in the vicinity were soon filled with an excited crowd Tho poMce nt on co began an investigation und soon learned that a dynamite car tridge had been placed upon tho ledge of a window of tho tnesi room, which is on tho ground flour of the barruclcs. Pieces of the coppjr casing of the cartridge and bits of a fusa wero found and these explained tho methoiU tho miscreants had employed. Ilv llie greatest good luuk all tha guards es caped without injury, and tho only harm dono was to the barracks and tha Imil lings in tho viciuity. Hundreds of windows wero shattered and tho walls of the barracks and other buildings bear traces of the explosi in. Experts huve been cxnrniuing the fragments of coppor found by the po lice and their investigation leads to tho belief that tho shell used was one of tho melinite cartridges used by the army, but that the melinite hud been removed and tho shell filled with a specially prepared powder. A cabinet council was held this after noou at which President Carnot signed a bill introducing a clause in tho penal code., making tho wilful destructioa of property by means of explosives pun ishable with deatlt This clause will be introduced in tho chamber of depu ties this afternoon. The frequency of anarchistic out rages of late has caused a general feel ing of consterj'iition in Paris. It is be lieved that the anarchists will gain courage from their immunity from ar rest, for the police have not succeeded in detecting the authors of any of the explosions, and sarious upprehenslon is fe't regarding tho action they may take on May clay.

LAND SHARPERS. Miftrks lloiaplna a Harvest at the Ktponaa of old Heileliiers -1 lia Swindling Sclieieiia feimlilS tei l.ltrllt. Wasiiinciton, March 15. Letters from old soldiers In regard to the Chey enne and Arapahoe lands are pouring lu upon Missouri and Kansas Congress men, They show that unscrupulous jM-rsons aro reaping a great harvest ut the expi-nse of Ihe veterans. The lat ter are being lod to believe that by giving a power of attorney and a feu of $20, or thereabouts, they can havo filed for them a declaratory Statement which will entitle them to euter 100 acres of this Chey enne and Arspuhoc land any time within six months. From the number of letters received here by congress men within tho past few weeks it looks as if tills new trick had been p ayed upon hundreds if not thousands of old soldiers In the southwestern stutes. Said a Missouri congressman: "No such declaratory statements can bo filed now. The Cheyenne and Arapa hoo lands have not boon allotted, much less thrown open to settlement. The acceptance of these fees on the under standing that tho statements can bo filed now is a great fraud." Many of the letters which have como are evidently inspired from a common source. They are II identically tho same form, and call attention to the following clause in the Harvey b 11 pending for tho openlDg; of tho Chey enne and Arapahoe reservations: "And personal settlement on said Cheyenno and Arapahoe reservations shall be a condition precedent to entry thereon at the proper land oflice, and each set tler upon any of said reservations shall be allowed a period of six months after tho settlement thereon in which to muke'such filing." The writers then go on to say that this will practically repeal the United States statute w hich allows old soldiers to file declaratory statement through an agent and have six months to make entry ujeon the land. In other words, the Harvey bill stands In tho way of the persons who are gathering in ttie 820 bills right and left iu Missouri and Kansas und promising to file declara tory statements at agents for the old soldiers.

Nkw Yohk, March l.L The negotia tions which have been pending for the past two w eeks for a combination of the Tennessee Coal, Iron et ltiilway Co. with the Debnrdolban Coal it Irmj Co. have been succ.-scfu'ly consum mated. Ihe capital of the Hcburael ban company was 10.0:10,000 in stock and 3,0 HI, 000 11 bond-,; that of the Tennessee was 5,0)0,000 in bonds, $1,0)0,009 in preferred stock and f.1,000,000 common stock. That is to say, the two coinpsuies represented a capitalization of 10,000,000 In common stock, 1,000,000 in preferred stock und Si,000,000 of bonded inelchtedness.

I. ark no, Tex., March 15. A Mexican came into Laredo and reported a ghast ly find to the authorities. He savs t ut on last Monday while engaged iu cut ting grass not far from Kl Palo ranch, in Knsinal county, he came suddenly upon the boely of a man hang ing to the limb of a inesiptite. The body was that of a Mexi an, about 110 yc.i! s old, and apparently hsd not been hanging more than twenty hours. The rope used was a small grass rope, which was well se cured to the limit. On the ground not far from the b ely were several emp'y inchester cartridges. The locality is a wil I and urs.'ttlod stretch of country and several miles from the nearest ranch. The reason given by the Mexi can why he had not reported the mat ter was that his master was ahsc it from the ranch and he coul I not leave. The relatieen of this find had hard:? Wen made when another reported the finding of another boely hanging not many miles from where the first one was located. Sheriff lienavielea sent out immediately a deputy sheriff to in vestigate the affair. She re is no ele w yet as te) w hom these law ess acts are to be attributed, though there Is an opinion f-x pressed that these hangings are the deeds of (larr.a's men. w ho thus seek reverge upon those Mexicans w hom they suspect of having aided and abetted the Inited States troops in hunting down (earzs's reveilutionists.

He went there to in vestigate a complaint that the states officials of Minnesota were uua ble by reason of the cordage trust manipu'ations to procure ma chinery for making binding twine ia the state penitentiary at Stillwater. Ho says ho fount the complaint well founded; that John flood, the New York manufacturer of binding twine machines, was In the power of tha trust, anil oeiuld sell to no one outsiele of it. The state oflicials, balked in this direction, consulted the cordage trust, and wero informed that they could have the machines If the state would give a bond of 200,00o to indemnify tho trust against loss by reason of tho manufacture of twine In , the peniten tiary. So tho state has been com pelled to uso an inferior, old-style ma chine, making the output so small that it cannot affect the market JVf. Hor ton says he cannot even lenrn the price charged for twlno by tho trust. He de clares it controls the entire output of sisal and inunilla, but has so guarded everything that he does not believe that sufficient evidence can be got to justify an indictment. Mr, Morton says that certain facts in regard to tho alleged dressed beef com bine and tho so-called biscnit trust have been laid before him and that he proposes to investigate them. The charge against the "Hig Three" packers. Armour, Swift and Morris, is that they control the dressed-beef business of the country, fix the prices for cattle on the hoof and compel wholesale butchers to buy of them or go out of the busi ness by establishing competing houses iu their territ-iry. A BIG STRIKE. Thousand! of D.iigllili load Miners stopped Work. London, March 14 The great coal miners' strike was begun to-day iu ac cordance with the plan of the miners' federation, which, in its manifesto issue 1 a few days ago, declared that tho holiday the men pro posed to take was for tho pur pose of clearing the markets of the surplus coul and for restricting the output, in order to prevout the masters from using the low prices as an excuse for lowering wiigus. At 2 o'clock this afternoon tho men employed in the mines in Lancashire, Cheshire anil Yorkshire stopped work, and the ponies were removed from tho pita The only men now nt work are the surfai'o men, pu npors an i ventila tor attendants, whom the federation has not called out. Mining has com pletely stopped. It was hoped until to-day that somo sort of a compro mise would be arrived nt, but no agreement could lie rciwhe I, and the strange spactaelo presents itself of the employes epitting work in the masters' interests, fur it cannot be denied that if any advantage is to be derived from higher prices the mine ow ners as compared w ith t he miners, will reap the greater portion. The 20,000 miners in Nottingham quit work at noeen ti-day. When they came out of the pits they brought their t eis w ith them. The coal output in the Hristol district alreuly mined is nearly exhausted. The miners have ceased work, and as a result the price of coal has gone up four shillings. Many manufacturers refuse to pny the prico demanded anil have closed their factories. In this re spe'et the action of the miners is work ing greatly to the harm of operatives employed in ciher industries. ANOTHER LYNCHING.

The mob was thoroughly organized fur hours Is'fore the lynching took place The sheriff knew that night fall meant an attack on the jail and that the only salvation for his prisoner was to fly w ith him from the country. He selected two trusted deputies and placing the prisoner in their charge at dusk let them out of the west kitchen door of the jail building. It was the intention to reach a point on the Wa bash track and bv s gnal stop the early evening train. This was thought t) bee the only chance to savo Gordon from the mob's hands.
