New Ha van and Hartford Railroad sc eepted thla afternoon the resignation of President C. B. Mellen, which waa tendered at a meeting held yesterday. The reslgnetlon la to take effect upon the appointment of Mr. Msllsn's sue- t. P. Morgan. Theodore X. Vail. Samuel Res. William Skinner. Edward Mllllgan and Robert W. Taft are the mensbers of ths committee which con tinue ae an organisation acting for thf Board of Ulracture until a new president of the New York. New Haveh end Hartford Is choeen. The commit tee he aeveral Dig railroad men under consideration, but It Is not believed likely that anybody now connected with tha New York. New Haven and Hartford or It allied llr.ee known In I have been at any time In sympathy with Mr. Mellen will ie selectet'. In fact It would appear that the resignation of .Mr. Mellen amount to a declaration of open warfare on hie part against the New York. New Hav en and Hartford illrectotate. Of course this cannot be Mated with certainty, but It la known that Mr. Mellen doe not purpose to liave all the blame of the various New Haven stock manipu lations, monopoly plan and operating mishaps loaded on his huuldera when, he claims, everything he did waa ee ra tioned or ordere.l by the directorate. SUDDEN RISE AND QUICK COL LAPSE OP BYRNES BOOM. An In. Id -lit tending to lllusliate that s!l f no harmony between Mf Mellen and t le board of directors of the New Haven road was the sudden rtie and onlck collapre tn.day of a report that T.mothy K. Hyrncs, Pint Vlce-Preol-lent end llenersl Maniper of the New York. Nev Haven and Hartford, would be chosen Mr. Mellen' successor. Mr. Byrnes Is a lawyer hy profession, but s railroad man by instinct and training, and as an operating official he takes high rank. He rame to the New Havan syatem from the Northern Pacific at the request of Mr. Mellen nine years ago. An hour before the meeting of the committee to-day to act on Mr. Mellsn's resignation every Xe- Haven official In the Orand Central Terminal building was certain that Mr. Byrnes would soon bo chossn president of the road. Mr. Byrnea was on hand. Hs had bean summoned to meet the committee. But tha committee did not select Mr. Byrnea. And Mr. Byrne, looking con siderably put out, started for Huston on the first tram out. Than the rumors switched and it was hawked about that Mr. Byrnes would also tender his reslg r.stlonthst he ha. I been too close a friend and too loyal an ssoolats of Mr. Mellen to be considered as the head of the system. Following this came tha report that the entire Mellen human machinery of the New Haven la to go out with tha bi.cbose that the directors will b:lng in a new head who will Infuse new blood turougiout the systsm. At any rato ull the Melln men on the road are expecting separation from thalr Jobs. Thla meaning all tha men Mr. Mellen brought with him from the Northern Pactflo or employed from other roads or promoted to responsible positions on ths New Haven lines after he took tha presidency.

An Infernal machine strangely similar to the one sent to Jacob Schlff alx years ago. Inclosed In a wooden box and con taining enough explosive and Iron pipe to kill several persons, waa sent to-day by parcel post to Jaoquae Frank, a saleeman, of No. 7Q West One Hundred and Seventieth street Inspector Albert BalUkt of the Bureau of Combustibles, -who soaked the bomb until It waa harm- lee,, pronounced It one of the most fiendish machines hs had encountered In his ntnsteen years' service opening deadly contrivances.

While Hannon stood at the door Frank tors off ths strings which bound the box and ripped open the paper. Aa ha did so there wae a strong odor of sulphur. He turned the package over and thsrs flowed from a small crevice In tha cover a email stream of black gunpowder. LIGHTS A MATCH AND PUTS IT TO POWDER. Frank calmly collected the powder, placed It on the floor and lit a match. There waa a flash. Hannon ran nbout ing from the floor and called up Capt. Day of the St. Nicholas avanue station, who despatched two policemen to the house. The police sent for inspector Balllla. The bomb was taken to the basement and submerged In a tub of water. While Balllle and the policeman waited, nsws of the arrival of tha bomb spread quickly through the neighborhood and a great crowd collectsd In front of the premiss.

Just under ths cover was a strip of smery paper. Standing up from the Interior of the box were five sulphur matches so arranged tha when the cover was slid opsn the matchee would come In contact with ths paper, and causs the explosion of the gun powder.
