Ef A most Important fact, which may serve as
T a cluo to the Identity ot the murderous mad'
I man whose bomb-throwing exploit In the of-
Sec ot Husscll Sngo yesterday afternoon
.U causing tbe lossot two lives and themalm
' tag ot several persons has created such a
M J tremendoua sensation throughout tho coun-
try, was brought to light this morning.
.V It v 111 be remembered that In the height ot
I yesterday's excitement, when nil sorts of
I. wild lumors and stones were flying about'
LL thy accounts nearly all agreed lu one point.
wfr " Ihit point was that the name of the mys-
jvl teilous d)uamlter was "Wilson." It was
"p E&ld by Mr. Sage that when ho found himself
I face to faco vv 1th thn maniac In the little antc-
mom of tho outer ofllce, tho latter presented
blm a em don which was the name of "II. D.
It wns learned this morning by au Evknimo
j WoitiDicporter that tho card presented by
F tbe assassin to Cleric Norton at the window
Q' ' of theouttronico two or threo minutes before
mf 11 r. Sage made his appearance, bore the
r names Wlllson Hcdcnberg," ot 111 Broad-
I The man said he wanted to see Ur. Sage
I about tho negotiation of some bonds, and
I declared that he came from Mr. Rockefeller.
W Wlllson & Uedenbcrg, who have an onice at
the address mentioned, are engaged In the
W promotion of business enterprises, and fre-
quently negotlato bonds for companies that
' B wish to raise capital to start their business.
I The senior member oi the rlimls Hugh It.
I Wllltcn. He Is a young man, but has had a
large experience w 1th cranks and enthusiasts
D who have schemes which they are bent upon
I putting In operation.
l An Etinino World reporter found Mr.
I Wlllson In his ofllce early this morning.
I Asked If he had any Idea who tbe person
I could bo who presented the card ot his firm
I at ltussell Sage's ofllco yesterday noon, Mr.
, V Wlllson replied t
V thinks ii k has sekn tub assassin.
B 1 have been reading In the papers the do-
fsS ecrlptlon of tto head which was found among
yf tbo debris In Mr. bnge's offlce, and whloh 1b
f J supposed to be that of tho fiend who tried to
I blow up the building.
I " I am very forcibly Impressed with this
I , dcsci lptlon, as it agrees in many points w 1th

VJ his name or any particulars about his rest.
mT dence or his business, for I might be doing the
jM person I have In mind a very groat Injur)'!
J but there Is no den lng the fact that In Its
I main points his description agrees very ao
I curatcly with that ot our would-be client.
" " It lb about seven months since I have seen
blm. He had a bohemo to promoto and came
lr to us. I didn't know who sent blm here, but
II we hndbuvernl visits from him. We did not
fl think well of his proposition, so we declined
U to do business nllb hliu.
JM. " Ho was uu American, I am certain, and

"Ho also wore his hair, which was rt.irU

Tho police have not yet lmestlgated this
clue. They are trj lng to solve tho problem as
to whether tho bomb thrower Is tho mysteri
ous "John Walsh " w ho has been writing
threatening letters to Mr. bago recently.
Who Walsh Is nobody knows; but quite
recently -Mr. sago rocehed a long letter
signed by this name, In which tho writer said
he must have 1,200,000 at once.
lie had a good deal to say In this letter
about the recent dispute between the Stand
ard Gaslight Company and President Wallaco
U. Andrews, ot the Steam Company, and
mentioned tho 11,200,000 In stock which be
longed to the widows ot Uen. Spluola and tho
late Mr. Monhelmcr.
He declared that be was going to marry
both these ladles, and demanded tho money
from Mr. Sago In order that ho might bo
placed on a financial equality with them.
Bcvei al other letters followed, signed by the
same "John Walsh," In which tho demand
was reiterated and threats ot bodily harm
were made in case Mr. Sage refused to comply
with the request.
The millionaire, who receives no end ot
letters of this kind, as bis nephew says, paid
ho attention whatever to tbe demand at nrst,
Imagining It to be only tho Idle threat of a
harmless lunatic
Afterwards, during the earlier part ot tho
present week, when the letters began to come
In almost every day, he became a little
nervous and sent for Inspector Ilyrncs.
Tbe Inspector called at Mr. Sage's onice. at
71 Broadway, several times. Mr. Sage
showed blm tbo letters, and ho undertook to
look up the writer. It Is said that the In
spector was on his way down to Mr. Sage's
offlco yesterday when tho climax canio and
the crank got lu his fiendish work.
There Is no doubt whatever that the bead
and the Bhreds ot the human body now lying
In a pine box at tho Morgue aro those ot the
body ot the murderous inaulac.
The bead and face are In almost a perfect
Btato ot preservation. From tbo neck thcro
bangs a long strip ot blackened tlcsh and
muscle, which tells ot the frightful force
w bleu to ro It from tho body.
The bristly hair of the redclsb-brown beard
and mustache. Is slightly blnged, which gives
to It a Homew hat kinky appearance.
Tho e clashes aro burned off, but tho short
dark hair, which stands up btralght and thick
from tho forehead, Is not marked by tho flame.
The features are very regular, tho neso
straight and well proportioned, with dellcato
nostrils, though tho face Is somewhat elon
gated and thin.
1 ho forehead Is high and retrentlng and the
ears are small and well formed. Tbe skin of
the face Is somewhat reddened lu patches as
though slightly burned, and wheio the nat
ural color of the skin Is tioeu It appears some
what tallow.
The eyes are wide opsn and staring, tbe
pupils being very much contracted. They

arc largo and full, and In color arc of a bluish
one of thn most noticeable things about tho
features Is tho mouth. The lips are full and
rod, and the teeth while, regular and remaik-
pompadour style. His eyes were blue and
large, and soft In expression. There was
nothing wild about them, as I remember.
" The descriptions given of tho head at the
Morguo glvo the same general features, as to
hair, beard, eyes, and so forth, and although I
can hardly believe It Is the samo person,
still tho correspondence of detail Is so strik
ing thut I am going to tho Morgue this aftoi
noon and take a look at tbo head. I could
tell In a moment If It was tbe same person.
"There has been plenty of time for him to
go crazy since I saw him. We na o n great
many cranks come to see us, and I do not
often remember them from ono week to
another; but somehow or other tbo appear
nnce of this particular man Impressed itself
upon me, and I have a feeling that It may bo
the same person.
" During bis negotiations with us he never
expressed any animosity toward millionaires
In general, or ltussell Sage, Jay Gould or any
one else In particular. He might have taken
some ot our cards with blm, and probably
ably perfect and beautiful In their formation.
Tho trunk ot the body has been blown Into
shreds. One arm, tho left, was blown off at
the bhoulder and broken at tho w rbt.
The right arm has disappeared entirely.
Soveral lingers and tho thumb or thu right
bam were found and are In tbe box at tbe
Morgue, together with a hundred other
scraps ot flesh and bono from various parts of
the body.
The left leg Is almost Intact from tho hip
down, but only tho foot and lower portion ot
the right leg was found.
Tarts of tho man's body w as blown through
the floor Into tbo old ofllco of the Union Trust
Company below, and bevcral fragments of it
were picked up there by the police In clearing
away tho wreckage jesterday afternoon.
It Is eWdent that the explosion must bavo
taken placo In closo proximity to tho dyna
miter's body, otherwise It could not have had
such frightful effort.
It looks as though tho hand bag which ho
carried, and which is bald to have been filled
with nltro-gl'cerlne, or fulminating powder,
exploded as ho held It In bis right band.
borne think ho may have simply dropped It
on the floor at bis feet, and there Is another
theory that be threw a small bottle or bomb
containing the explosive at Mr. Sage. wiOoh
missed Llm, and, striking tho wall or floor,
The concussion from this Instantly caused
the larger quantity, which the bomb-throner
still had In his satchel, to explode, and In
this way tho perpetrator ot this awful crime
was himself blown to fragments.
Robertson Will Recover, Though
DUfleurad for Life Tho Others.
At Chambers Street Hospital this morning
I. L. Robertson, the whlie-halred father ot
l'rank Robertson, tho twenty-ycar-old clerk
In Russell Sage's onlec, awaited anxiously
tho report of tho doctor on tho condition of
hl3 son. It came at u o'clock. The doctors
bent down word that tbo unfortunate young
I man was doing as well as could be expected,
'and that there was a fair hopo for his
reco ery.
Young Roberlbon was horribly mangled by
the terrible explosion. Thero was hardly a
portion of his body that was not Injured, ono
I eye was completely smashed and tho sur
geons found It uccssaiy to remove It. Thero
was a great gash torn In his abdomen and his
legs and at ms were cut and torn, llut what
was diagnosed by tho atnbulanco surgeon
from a hasty examination as a double com
pound fraciure of tbo base of the skull was
found on more careful examination to bo only
an ugly scalp wound.
Concussion was feared, but did not develop
last night, and tho young man may recover,
though he will bo frightfully disfigured for
life. He lived with hid father at Avenue A
and Fifth street, Bergen point.
Charles W. Osbjrn, Mr. Sago's cashier, and
tor many years his conndcntlal secretary,
also 1) lng at thu Chambers Street Hospital,
was improving this morning. That was tho
glad news that Rev. Ur. J. M. Farrar, of tho
j beventh Avenuo Reformed Church, Brooklyn,
! took to Mrs. Osborn at her homo, luti llcrkc-
Mr. Osborn received multiple wounds and
gashes, tho worst of which was a laceration
of tho neck. Ho Is a manor titty-two years
and suffered much from nervous shock,, but
the physicians thought this morning that ho
would got well.
Tbo other victims of tho explosion who
went to Chambers Street Hospital wore Ben
jamin F. Norton, who died there yesterday,
and batnuel G. Calhoun.
Calhoun, a telegraph operator In the orflce
of Washlngtor E. Connor, walked to the hos
pital after tho explosion. He bad received a
tremendous blow on the right side of the
head, and was much dazed; but tho surgeons
found that bo had sustained no serious In
Jury, and after his wound was dressed ho re
turned to the sceno of the explosion and was
about all tho afternoon.
A great knob appeared and grew to the size
ot bis fist back of the right ear, and tbo man
grew more and more confused, till be was
tlnally induced to go to his bomo at IDS Dean
street, Brooklyn.
His Ghastly Severed Head Not Tot
Tho disrupted and disintegrated mass of
liuunn llesli and bones belonging to the frame
ot the dead dynamiter lay In au ordinary
pine box at tho Morguo this morning.
The bloody, severed head, which was taken
to tho homo of Russell bago last night and
there Identities by him as that of tho man
who had demanded tho great sum of money,
was returned tu tho Morgue by Inspector
ltjrnes's ortlcers shortly before midnight.
There were comparatively few visitors to
thu dead-house tbHloreuuvZ, r.nd those who
did appear were Impelled by curiosity.
Several attaches oi llellevuo Hospital re
moved the lid and paied i the ghastly bead,
but no uno could say ho bad ever been It
1 ho turn and rngg.-d remmrtts of the cloth- (
lng picked up at the bcene of tbo explosion
are piled cm a table In the autopsy room. As
sistant MnrgucKeepcr I'lnnlgau examined
the blood-stained fragments this morning In
the presence of an Kvknivu Vorlii reporter.
Thcro w as a portion of a ptlr ot trousers,
strlpod In n bluish grav.aplcco of n black
cIothovrrcn.it and pieces of a black dlagonr.l i
coat nnd vest. A sleuvo of a white cot
ton undershirt aud two pieces of gray
cotton drawers and brown overshlrt
were tlfere. 'I hero were, besides, shreds
of a white linen shlit, a bltck suspender, a
light-brown, lelt-hand kid glovo; a pair ot
laced shoes and n piece of the rlin ot a black
derhj hat, to which was attached a wind I
The clothing was of n mediocre quality, in '
examining the piece of trousers u button w as (
found with the name of "Brooks, Boston." I
This would indicate that thu trousers wire
made lu Boston by this llrm. It may possibly
furnish u cluo towards the dynauilier't)
The glove was numbered T and was stamped
"K." The him or tbe shoes was No. 11.
Asslstaut Kecpir Flimlgan said to tbo re
porter that he would nail up the box con
taining thu body nl the dynamiter. Tho hor
rlblu fragments wjuU! be kept at tbo Morgue
until .Monday, uud It not then claimed the)
would bo burled lu Potter's Field.
Ho Was Injured Chiefly by Bhock,
and Drove Out To-Day.
" Mr. Sago Is very much better," was tho
answer that a servant at the house, liut)
ruth avenue, repeated at Uasl a bundled
times this morning lu reply to Inquiries alter
his condition.
There was a constant stream of visitors at
the millionaire's home. Most of them left
curds. Only a few of the many who wanted
to seo Mr. Bago personally wero admitted.
Among these were Almon Goodwin, President
(lallaway, of thu Third National Bank, and
George J. Gould, Jay Gould's son, who re
mained for nearly an hour.
Ur. J. 1'. Munn, Mr. Gould's physlcan, called
nt H o'clock and again an hour later.
"What Is Mr. Sage's condition t" bo was
asked by an Kvkvinii World reporter.
" Ho Is getting along splendidly. Ho suf
' fered moro Horn bhock than from wounds, and
has almost fully recovered."
" Will he be able to go to his offlce to-day J"
" He Is able to go, but I advl,cd him to keep
quiet for a day or two. Ho will go out for an
ahlng to-day that Is all."
Reporters were not admitted to see Mr.
Sage. Ills nephew, Russell Sage, Jr., an
swered all questions. He bald that Mr. Sage
had no furtber Information to give tbe press.
Mr. Sage had had a long conference with
Chief Inspector Byrnes last night- More
than that tho nephew refuaeu to tell.
Among tho early callers to-day were:
Charles N Talbot, W. E. Conner, Will
i lam Warner Hoppln, W. It, Grace, J. C

Visit of a Mystorlou3 Crank to the
Western Union Building.
There was a startling rumor thU morning
that tbe man who exploded the bomb lu ltus-
l wll Sage's ofllco yesterday hud also visited
thu Western Union Telegraph Company's
: building earlier In tho day In quest ot Jay
Investigation by an Evening World re
porter developed that a man, evidently crazy
I aud of bomewhat similar appearance to Mr.
' Sago's assailant, wont up to the fourth Moor
of tho big building at lua Broadway about
ld.'JO jesterday forenoon and told Doorman
Michael Dovvd, at the operating rooms, that
ho wanted to collect a bill, but didn't know
I whom be w anted to bee.
' Doorman Dond sent blm downstairs again,
and tho man disappeared. He had a beard
something like Mr. Sage's assailant, but wore
1 a slouch hat, light gray overcoat and carried
no handbag.
Body of Young Benjamin F. Norton
Taken to His Home To-Day.
Benjamin F. Norton, who was gathered up
a shattered wreck after the explosion and
taken unconscious to Chambers btreot Hos
pital, died within an hour after his arrival
there, or at 1.30 o'clock. lie bad sustained a
1 compound Iracture of the skull, besides Inter

down the Hudson River last night. i.jH
Ihe news of the disaster was first luarned '
from W. Curran, a Imat-hand on the Louise, ''M,

btai tlltig story. : 'M
Hu said that twelvo barges loaded with jH

Cornell Ton lng Company's steamboat Town 'tssfl
I Whn off croton Tolnt tho swellof tbo river 'H
: was ro great that tho steamboat was com- lisjH
i pellet! tn change Its course. This caused tho ; :H
barges to bunt each other, and In tho terrible , jlH
I windstorm that swept down upon them a Laaaal
moment later they were upset and every JH
i barge w ent down. jH
There were nve men to each barge, and H
all but two men reached shore. safl
Among tho barges wero tho Irene, Capt. aaaaal
.James Kennedy; tho Dolson, Capt. Pat 'H
' Cahllt ; Louise, Capt, A. Bradbury ; the vH
Lizzie and Louise, Capt. Christie Ray ; the H
Iircnnan, capt. Jas. G. Scott, and the Ellen 'H
C. McGulie, capt. G. Larkln. '
" Wo were In tho cabin playing tho con- 'jH
ccrtlua," said Curran, "when tbo accident H
occurred. I ran on deck right after the l
shock, but all I could see was ono scow run jH
6m top ot another. H
"I was thrown into tho water and escaped rjH
by sw lmmlug ashore." H
At tbo ofllco ot the Cornell Steamboat com- 'H
pauy, at tbe foot of Uetbune street, tbls iH
morning, It was said that three ot tbe barges H
were owned by tbe Diamond Brick Company, ' JH
two by the Tompkins cove Stone Company, ' H
