Until that moment O'Connor was bemoaning hlr tuck th.it he should have to bo In court t'i make a charge nftnlnst u push cart pertler instead of liolng homo with his wife nnd two children on his usual hours "f leave. Instantly he darted forward and grabbing the bomb, which hod oily thicii Inches of fusp visible, started for tho doorway. Hp tried to rub tlie fuse out, nnd fnl'.lng In that he terked the Insulated fuso from Its faMenlng In thp heart of tho explosive, Kxrept for his quickness of eye, his preface of mind In a most ticklish situation nnd his cotirngo the Tombs police court probably would have been wrecked and many persons. Including Magistrate John A. L. Campbell, who s sitting on the bench with his wlf.j anil several visitors, might have been killed or severely Injured. There were mo,ro than two pounds of mixed black and smokeless powder nnd about thirty loaded cartridges In tho bomb. Experts say that tho explosive- would have done great damage. IIiikc Conspiracy Seen. The bomb Is tho fifth powerful ex plosive that has been placed In churches or courts slnoo the I. W. W. and tho anarchists began their campaign In this city last winter under tho ruIbo of un employment. Tho attempt to wreck the Tombs court yesterday, following within three days the explosion of the h nib outside tho Itronx county Court Hou.e, led many experts In the I'ollce Department to believe that the bomb was part of a huge conspiracy on the part of anarchist or I. V. W. men to wage war on churches and courts. There is no doubt in their minds that it was a deliberate attack on Magistrate Campbell. Ho has figured more con fp'.cuously than any other City Magis trate In the handling of tho I. W. v. tases. He sentenced 170 of tho 190 per sons arrested at the time of the raid of Frank Tannenbaum on tho Church of St. Alphonsus. He .sent Hecky Edol sohn to prison. Ho convicted llounk White, the pastor of the Church of Social Involution, and sent him to the Island. All these convictions were the result of tho I. W. W. agitation. At tho lime of the I. W. V. trials Magistrate Campbell received many threatenlnr let ten and was followed by gangs of loughs on several occasions. Furthermore. It will be recalled that Arthur Caron, who was one of Tinmen taum's assistants In the raids on churches last spring, was killed by tho premature explosion "tfa" bomb In a llathousu at 1626 Lexington avenue on July 4. This convinced the police that members of the I. V were engaged In the manurac ture of bombs and responsible for thel p.acing.

"BOBS" WAS THE IDOL OF BRITISH SOLDIERS Special Cable Detpatel) to Tiis Sex ' London, Nov. 14. Lord Roberts, Kng-1 land's oldest General nnd popular hero of thp South African wnr, died nt tho , front nt 8 o'clock to-night, according to nn olllclnt announcement of the press bureau. The official bureau Issued the follow ing announcement to-night: "Iord Kitchener announces with deep regret, which he knows will be shared by the whole army, that he received on Saturday the following telegram from Sir John French, the commander of tho llrltlsh forces in France: " '1 deeply regret to tell you that Lord Roberts died at 8 o'clock this evening.' "Lord Roberts was on a brief visit to France In order to greet the Indian troops, of which he was Colonel in Chief. Ho contracted a chill on Thursday and succumbed after a short Illness to an at tack of pneumonia." Lord Roberts's age he was 82 on September 30 last was a contributory cause of death, although he had been In his usual health lately, which was ex ceptionally good for a man of his age. His death will have purely a sent!- mental effect upon the situation. Since the outbreak of the present war he had been working hard imploring young men to realize their country's danger and to offer their services In the present war. For years he had been preaching the doctrine of llrltlsh military unprepared- ness, and when he retired from active service In 1905 he devoted his time to attempting to arouse all England to the urgent, necessity of adopting compulsory military training nnd service. His earnestness In this regard cauied him to be looked upon by opponents as a fanatic upon the subject. Several times since the end of last July he had conferred at the War Ofllce with Lord Kitchener, and- these meet ings may be regarded as consultations, but the effect of any suggestions offered by Lord Roberts Is problematical. Of all the brilliant soldiers who helped to found and consolidate the British Umpire In the Hast none has acquired a higher niche In the temple of military fame than he who was known In the llrltlsh peerage as Earl Roberts of Kan dahar, nnd to the public as "Bobs, name popularly bestowed almost a genera tion ago, when the fiery little soldier was first focussed In the public eye through the drab medium of official "mentions, He was of slight physique and In his youth suffered from a weak heart. Tet he was so courageous that early In life he won the Vlctoila Cross and gave many other proofs of physical prowess. So skilled a lender was ho that In his Indian campaigns on more than one occasion with C.000 troops he defeated 50,000 of the enemy: so skilled In ad ministration and organization that he could bring order out of chaos In as aulck time as he could quell an Indian mutiny, nnd withal kindly, cheerful, stanch In bis friendships and continually fighting fr the best for his soldiers. It was no wonder that "Hobs' soon won worldwide fame, i"1' a sf,cure I'lllce he l'eafts of his countrymen. was born In 1832 at Cawnpore, India, the son or another famed Indian tighter. Gen. lr Abraham Roberts. O. C. It., and was christened Frederick Sleigh. He was educated at Iiton, Sandhurst and Addiscombe. At Addlacombo he suf fered much from his heart, and when he went to Bombay with fifty other cadets It was doubtful If he could endure the ellmnte. At the outbreak of the Indian inutlnv In May, 1857, ho was transferred from the quartermaster-General's staff to the Delhi Held force, and here no saw his first real service. It was service such as millions of Euro neans are undergoing now. Bullets rained around him; ono or ins neat menus, sinna- Imr with n a few feet or him, was killed, and when tho final assault was delivered Huberts' horse was Killed unoer mm. After th Is he went back to ins mrtn nlace to serve as a staff officer, dlstln gulshlus himself repeatedly.

On his return lie saw service In seme of the mountain campaigns, and In 1887 was appointed Assistant Quartermaster General to Sir Donald Stewart's Iiengal Hrlgade for Abyssinia. He then made another record for etllclency In handling troops, for which he was mentioned three times In omelal despatches. Then h got another leave, returning to India In IMS, when he undertook another particularly troublesome campaign Into Lushal, In which he had to ciu a pain iw imm through dense forests, while his troops were attacked by cholera, as well as h...uiAii iv the natives.
