Under an alcove in thc rear of the church, walch
i; a,'. essible from the outside of the church, was
found the amoldng remains of a curious-looking
machine, which ls said ta h.* a bomb. Hits of burnt
wadding w>-re found In the hole mad.,- In the ground
by the force of the explosion. As th? Inclosure mn
not shattered, thc pastor thinks) that the explosion
waa caused by a giant cracker, which waa not

scared to k> on with the services.
Tn.- trustees he. 1 a meeting at once to dtacuag

culprit. They summoned g number of arlinesaea
I.--' ire th'-m and ?.-nt several parties to scour the
neighborhood for clevis which might lead to the
offender. A witness, who.*- name the trustees de?
clined to reveal, said that a few minutes before the
explosion ie- bad aeon a young man tn the rear of
the church where tbe explosion t-*,k place, acting

Denver, March 9 <Jovernor Waite is of the opin?

Of the motley power This observation of the I'hlef

Ju ? Glynn, of the District Court, had rendered a

HIS relations with RICHARD croker -OF
pression hy policemen at THI LAST
Morris Tekulsky, president of the Stat* Liquor
Deaiais" ftsaawisiion was an Interesting witness
before the Senate Polios Investigating Commit?
tee yesterday. It is true that W. A. .Sutherland,
counsel for the committee, was unable to get
much positive evidence out of Mr. Tekulsky. A
more unsatisfactory witness has not appeared
before thc oomnititea Eta gave every one the
Impression that he was keeping something back.
He Intimated that the proper question was not
put to him to elicit the information wliich tha
committee wanted, hut siptirmed out of Mr. Suth?
erland's grasp when It came to telling Just what
the right question was.
Mr. Sutherland evidently had been told that
Tekulsky had talked to various persona about a
promise, which Tekulsky apparently attrihuted
to Richard Croker, that the police should receive
orders from the Tammany Hall leaders about ar?
rests for violation of tb** Excise law. The witness
denied having said anything of the kind, but his
answers were often halting and evasive to an
annoying degree. Senator Bradley has through?
out the session asked B,ueStlonB tending to aid
the side of the police, hut when Tekulsky had
Rn tattled testifying the Senator leaned over and
asked him significantly:
"Voil are a very Intelligent man. are you not?"
Th.- witness assented to this, anl the Senator
arent om
"I)o you know the meaning of the term mental
reservation?" Tekulsky bub wared yes again.
Of course, Tekulsky has been one of Tammany's
most eflMent Braves and tools. He admitted
that he wan nominated a delegate to the Consti?
tutional Convention by asking Mr. Croker. The
committee may call on Tekulsky again. If it
does it will probably 1. un a great deal more
than it did yesterday.
As usu.ii. Police Captail Devery cropped up
In the proceedings. It is an off day in the hear?
ings when some testimony ls not given as to
orders issued by him on last Kle.-tlon Day which
should aid the cause ,f Maynard and Tammany
Hall, (mc witness heard him instruct his men
to stand "siik stockings" on their hea,in If they
jail anything at the polling-places. These "silk
stockings" iv,-te watchers gent to the 111,1 As?
sembly District by the Har Association and the
Republican flub. Apparently all the poUcenaea
tn that Assembly District had orders not to allow
Bartlett watchels behind tho rail, although this
right is given hy th,- law.
Yesterday a particularly interesting story about
th" Indicted police . apuin was told. A Repuhll
'?in watcher causel the arrest of an Illegal voter.
Th-* three went to tnt address given by the voter,
hut he was not known there. At the station
bouse, as sion as Captain Devery heard the
wat h.-r's mission, h.- caused his arrest on a
charge of drunkenness and disorderly conduce
In the police court Justice Ryan heard not a
word of testimony, but tined the watcher fa
at once.
An Incident sh .wing that the police were netts*
against Walter W. Hanan whiai he ran for th*
Assembly as an Independent Democratic candi?
date was brought out. A shoe dealer who hafi
signed Mr. Hanan's certificate of nomination was
urged hy several persons, including a liquor seller,
to withdraw his name. He refused to do so. Ten
minutes after the last caller hal gone, a police?
man came up and ordered the shopkeeper to move
his show raBfB from the sidewalk.
Ii- Lam ey Nicoll, who holds a commission
made out hy himself as court Jester to the com?
mittee, did not wear the motley with his former
grace. His humor was not always spontaneous.
It did not bubble forth ns on former days. Poor
Mr. Nicoli was under a disadvantage. Every one
? In th. courtroom knew his tactics. Every one
knew that his scheme was to ridicule thc com?
mittee .ind to turn its a*ork into a joke. His
little game had been laid hare, and Its effective*
; ivss was th-rcfore nearly gone. It is hard to be
| funny winn every "in- is aware that you aro
; getting ;\ big fee for lt and ls on the lookout
i for your witticisms. So Mr. Nicoll was rather
subdued yesterday. He managed to drag out
tw., ,.n three f.'.-ble Jokes by purposely misrepre?
senting the t.-stlmony. and at one such instance
Senator Lexow brought him up with a short
Still. Mr. Nicoll, for a man who has won repu?
tation as a aerioua-mlnded politician and lawyer,
has played the role of low comedian pretty well
in th.- Investigation. Ho may. however, be doing
himself Irreparable injury by thus winning fame
its a humorist. Proctor Knott Of Kentucky. c*n
tell him whit a blight it ls on a public man'a
career to become known as a flanker "f comic ad?
di .-sos. it ls understood that Mr. Knott re?
gards his famous speech on Duluth, which set
th" whole country to laughing, as the most un
fortuna tc lucid, nt of his life
William a But heiland, counsel f>r the com?
mittee, was asked how long the Investigation
of police Interference in elections would continue.
"That is for thi committee to fay." was his
reply. "I have enoug,i testimony to keep it up
nil summer"
Mr. Nicoll sall thal he had not yet spoken
to the committee about being allowed to Intro?
duce testimony In behalf of the police. He had
considered the subject, bul did n,,t know how
much work the committee had already laid out
for Itscif._
The committee appoint.*! io o'clock aa the hoar
for meeting yesterday morning when lt adjourned
on saturday At that hour S-nator Hradley sat ta
the Vfttaeaa chair In the t'.enernl Term noni of the
Court of Common Pleas reading a morning paper
and looking over his spectacles once In a while to
crick a Joke or" tell n story to a group of retriers
at the tables near by. The sergeant-at-arms of the
Senate, three or four witnesses and one or two
caurt officers were th*' only other persons present.
Outside the door a crowd had gathered, but they
were not allowM inside the room until the wit?
nesses liad arrived and secured seats. ?
"Mr. Sergeant." said Senator Hradley, "you had
better make out some subpiena-s for the other
member* of the commit;>*e. If the chairman doesn't
come by <|uarter-|>a.st 10 o'clock, I shall Rend you
after him and have him arraigned before me."
Snator I.exow arrived tn time to prevent being
