Crowd Saved From Explosion by
Brave Policeman O'Connor, Who
Pulls Out Blazing Fuse and
Carries Bomb to Street.
A bomb fashioned of an oil can stuffed with two pounds of black
and smokeless powder and thirty cartridges, ranging in calibre from .32 to
.44and with a burning fuse attached, was found to-day under a btndrln
the Centre Street Police Court in the Criminal Courts Building. Magis
trate John Logan Campbell, who has sentenced many active Anarchists
to jail, had reached the court only a few minutes in advance of the dis
covery of the bomb.
Three days ago an attempt was made by bomb throwers to kill
County Judge Louis Gibbs of 'the' Bronx. To-day's attempt was un
doubtedly aimed at Magistrate Campbell. Direct attacks on the courts
and Judges form a new element in the crusade of violence preached by
the Anarchists and I. VV. W. leaders of this community. And to-day's
outrage was tinparallelled for audacity and risk on the part of the
Patrolman George O'Connor of the Mulberry street station, who was
nailing to arraign a prisoner, Haw smoko ascending from under a bench
oa the right-hand sldo of the court-room In the fourth row from the rail
surrounding the Magistrate's tnclosure and the third rail from the rear,
lie amide a dlvo for the source of the smoke and picked up a parcel wrapped
In riowspaper.
The free end of a fuse was sizzling and spitting and some of the spark.i
hud dropped on the newspaper, setting It on Ore. With great presence of
mind O'Connor tore tho fuse from the bomb. He did not know what he
had In his hands, but he know It was something that carried danger. With
no thought as to hts own safety he clasped tho bomb to his breast unj
raced from the court-room, followed by other policemen, who had noticed
his action.
Tho police court Is on the first floor of tho Criminal Courts Building,
occupying a room in the southeast corner. O'Connor sped out into tho
rotunda, dashed through the great doors and down the long flight of stepa
Into Centre street. Not until be reached the odge of the curb, clear off the
courthouse property, did he let go of the bomb.
He was not gentle In ridding himself of his burden. It landed on the
northbound trolley tracks in 'front of a Madison avenue car and rolled
cross the street to the opposite curb line, where it lay in the gutter.
O'Connt - was followed to thu street by scores of persons who bad
been lounging In the rotunda and by a c'.ozen policemen from the police
court anl othor parts sf the bulUli., The policemen conferred among
themselves and decided to take no chances with the bomb, which was in
th gutter on the east side of Centre street midway betweea Franklin and
Wblte streets.
Lines were formed at these two crosstown thoroughfares. No pedes
trian or vehicle was allowed to enter the block. When tho embargo bad
feeta in effect five minutes and the block was clear a little old Italian
sroroan stepped out of a store Just across the sidewalk from the bomb.
A hundred voices shouted a warning. The old woman became contused
and edged toward the gutter, finally coming to a stop so olose to the bomb
sum could have touched it.
Patrolman O'Connor, who had established himself on guard duty at
syiilte street, again showed himself a policeman possessed of initiative.
jStu afraid the bomb might go off and kill the old woman. So he made
sprint halfway down the block, picked her up in his arms and, without
saMkentng speed, carried her to Franklin Btreet, where he put her down,
(ho was frightened halt to death and scurried away toward Mulberry
In the mean time the tenants In tho buildings along the east side of
Centre street between White and Franklin streets were In an agitated
gtatn of mind. They could see the bomb down In the gutter and they
sjtsVt know what moment It might explode and blow them off the map,
In this emergency It was Claude
Aorta1 Tom Foley, who displayed Initiative. Lucker appeared on the
Mcwmlk with a bucket of water and approaching the bomb with hatte

after another, and happily each on
of them was pleasant. First wu

hurrying tn the opposite -direction to
take trains for Princeton.
The midnight train- from Washing
ton, on which ttio President and his
party travelled In his favorite car,
Ideal, arrived at 5.SS A. M two min
utes ahead of time. The President ate
an abundant breakfast, and It was not
until 7.36 A. M. that he wu ready t6'
leave the train. Then he came up In
one of the elevators, accompanied by
his daughter, Miss Margaret Wilson;
by Dr. Cary Grayson, the Whit
House physician, and by Secret Ser
vice Agents Sloan and Callahan, who
were Joined by three mora agents
from the New York office.
At the Thlrty-thlrd street exit Col.
K. M. House, the President's hoat for
the week-end, greeted them. The party
entered motor oars to go to No. 116
Esst Fifty-third street, where Colonel
and Mrs. House have taken an apart
ment. The programme waa that the
President should remain right there
until Sunday night, enjoying the com
plete quiet and rest which Dr. Gray
son had prescribed. But right here
another surprise occurred.
"Glorious day, Isn't It I" the Pres
ident exclaimed as the cars rolled up
Fifth avenue.
"Yes: a perfect day for golf," re
plied Dr. Grayson.
"Well, I know a member of the Pip
ing Hock Country Club at Locust
Valley, Long Island," said Col. House,
"and I have some bags of golf clubs
at home."
"Fine!" said the President, his eyes
dancing. "What a day we'll have!"
So the two cars stopped for a few
momenta In front of Col. House's
home. A man took the baggage Into
the house. In a Jiffy he reappeared
with two bags of golf clubs.
The party arrived at Piping Rock
at 9 o'clock, and fifteen minutes later
the match was under wuy. Miss Wil
son had remained In town with Mrs.
Hours and Col. Houso did not care to
play. Gordon Auchlnclosn was his
friend In the club, and Mr. Auchln
closs played In a threesome with the
Iresldent and Dr. Grayson.
Frank Roytl, a youngster In knick
ers, noted for never having "lost" a
ball, had t tin honor of carrying clubs
for the President.
On tho home ntnn holes Mr. Auchln
rlom struck his true gait, while the
President had a great deal of trou

simply would not go into the cup.
Therefore he was six down to Mr.
Auchlneloss at the finish, though he
had the satisfaction of beating Dr.

Great British Battleship Blew Up
After She Had Been Hit by a
itfihe or Torpedoed Off
Irish Coast.
Rumors of disaster to the British superdreadnougfc Audacious,
which have persisted ever since the White Star liner Olympic, diverted
from her course, arrived at Lough Swilly on Oct. 29, are confirmed In
mail advices received by the Associated Press from a point In Ireland.
After a career of less than two years, the Audacious, of the King
George V. classthird In tonnage and armament of His Majesty's war
ships lies at the bottom of the ocean
was hit by a torpedo or disabled by a mine just before 9 o'clock on the
morning of Oct. 27. .
With the possible exception of one or two men the whole crew of
800 officers and men was rescued by small boats from the Olympic.
Tbe rescue was made In a rough sea through brilliant and daring
seamanship on the part of the Wblte Star orew.
The battleship's cry for assistance was caught by the wireless opera
tor at the Olympic which was only
ruahad forwuxd at full speed while
Volunteers were called for and double the number necessary to man
the lifeboats responded. The crippled battleship waa reached a few
minute after o'clock, and before

Alter taking off all th officers and orew who would leave their ship,
Capt, Haddock ot the Olympic turned hts attention to an attempt to sar
the warship. A cable was fastened to her, but It snapped as it tightened.
The bulkheads began to give way and It waa soon apparont that It would
be Impossible to tow the ship or keep her long afloat.
The cruiser Liverpool and several other warship which had come up
stood by. Later In the afternoon It was decided to abandon the Audaclou
and the officers and men who had remained aboard her reluctantly left
her. Tho flotilla of rescue ships continued to stand by until 0 o'clock that
evening, when a terrific explosion occurred on honrd und the Audacious

The exploelon Is supposed to have been caused by shells set loose by
