Republican A. P. Leased Wire
NEW YORK. Sept. 19. Department
of justice agents and the police were
still without a clue tonight of the
identity of persons responsible for
Thursday's explosionin Wall street.
Alexander Brailovsky, a Russian
Journalist, who was arrested yesterday
on information furnished by an anony
mous correspondence and who ad
mitted having been in the financial
district a short time after the ex
plosion, is still held without bail on
a chares of being an undesirable
alien.
William J. Flynn. chief of the bu
reau of investigation of the -department
of justice, declared tonight he
placed no significance in Brailovsky's
arrest, but said he was being ques
tioned and held in conformance with
the department's plan "not to overlook
any bets" and to follow up all "leads."
No other charge or suggestion that
Brailovsky is any way personally , re
sponsible for the disaster has yet bten
made by the authorities. They an
nounced however, that he would be
questioned further and an effort made
to loear three men with whom he
was seri talking at Pine and Nassau
streets less, than an hour after the
blast: He vehemently denies being
implicated in the supposed plot.
, One Body Unidentified
The only other recent important de
velopment is the suggestion by Medi
cal Examiner Norris that the sole re
maining unidentified body, that of a
blond-haired boy about 19, may be that
of the driver of the "death wagon,"
which was abandoned near the assay
office just before the explosion and
which is believed to have carried the
time bomb causing the disaster. Seven
'"entifications" of the body were
m&de today but all proved erroneous.
A revised list of the dead tonight
showed that 34 persons were killed.
Robert A. Pope, brother-in-law of
Edwin Fischer, who sent postcard
warnings of the disaster, from Toronto
to friends in the financial district,
was questioned for two hours today
at the department of justice. Pope
turned Fischer over to the authorities
in Hamilton. Ont., where he is being
detained pending " his extradition to
this city, where he will be questioned
as to his knowledge of the blast. Chief
Flynn would not disclose the nature
of the investigation of Pope or eay
whether he would come voluntarily or
in answer to summons. Fischer, who
already has been adjudged mentally
unbalanced by a lunacy commission in
Hamilton, is expected here tomorrow.
Chief Flynn declared there ware no
new developments in the case tonight,
although bis men were working on sev
eral "leads" and hoped . for definite
results. He denied published reports
that he was seeking five members of
the so-called Gallianl band of an
archists. 'I ki.ow where these people are and
we are watching them," he paid. We
have them under surveillance along
with a number of other people, but
we are not looking for them."
1C0.0C0 View Scene in Day,
Police estimated-that lOU.OC'ti persons
visited the scene of the explosion to
day. All prominent churches and public
buildings, as well as the home. of high
public official-;' and financier!, were
placed under extra guard during the
week end.
Impressive funeral services were
held today for eigth of the dead, mili
tary honors being accorded to three
who were war veterans.
The September grand jury will be
gin listening to the testimony of wit
nesses tomorrow. Subpoenas have
been issued for more than a score of
persons who claim to have been with
in a block of the explosion.
o
MILAN. Sept. 19 Complete agree
ment between employers and metal
workers is believed to be in prospect
as a result of the negotiations here.
Belief that the difficulties presenting
the graver problems of the situation
have been solved is expressed.
The metal workers have accepted a
wage advance of four lire daily, this
amount to be reduced 20 per cent in
the cases of workmen from 18 to 20
years of age. and by 40 per cent in
the cases of women and children.
The employers also have agreed to

BRINGS NO CHANGE
LONDON. Sept. 19. The condition
of Terence MacSwjney, lord mayor of
Cork, was reported unchanged in three
bulletins issued today by the Irish
Self-determination k-asjue, although he
appeared somewbat refreshed by two
hours' sleep during the night. The
evening bulletin said: "
'He is extremely weak but still ctin-
Seiol'S."
Cousidt raid talk was occasioned to
day by a paraeraph .appearing in the
Sunday Times under the hfad:
"Who Is Feeding Mr.- MacSwiney?"
It says: Kv-rybody is asKinsr who H
feeding him. There is no doubt at al!
that the f-overnment Is not gi lni him
food, or any of the prison officials.
It is suggested that his visitors. rii'S,ts
and relatives, are givmir him sufficient
food to keep him alive." (
Pointing out that Mr. MacSwiney
and the Cork hur.Kcr stri- Rets have
virtually equalled pr. Tanner's 40 day'

"No nourishment or food of any kind
is being given to the lord mayor.'
Dr. Tanner's Celebrated Fast
The fast of lr. Henry Tanner which
virtually-lasted 40 days was carried out
under supervision of a New York med
ical college in the summer of lsy .
Dr. Tanner previously had abstained
from food, one of his efforts, unoffi
cially reported, covering 42 days. It
was the doubt expressed regarding this
achievement that impelled him to un
dergo his world famous 40-day fast.
He then was 49 years old and he lived

"Until Niagara Falls"
In one of his love notes Martin wrote,
"I'll love you, Kuth, until Niagara

"Angel Child: Instead of writing

using a scratchy pen. However, that
does not have anything to do with how
much I love you, which of eourve, is
more than this (arrow skitters down

Republican A. P. Leased Wire
GENOA, Sept. 18 Two high ex
plosive bombs similar to the one
that exploded in the stock ex
change here on Friday, have been
found by the police in a livery
stable, but the persons who hid
them there have not been discov
ered. The authorities are closely
following every clue, feeling they
may arrest the perpetrators of the
outrage and possibly reveal an in
ternational terrorist plot which
may extend to the United States.
Six Hungarians have been ar
rested since the bomb explosion.
They had plenty of money but none
of them had identification papers.
They are said to be communists
and were taken at a hotel alleged
to be a Veidezvous for radicals.
Several Russians and Hungarians,
held as suspicious characters, were
found there recently.
Police officials Have ascertained
the bomb had been made recently,
and for this reason, there is some
suspicion that it was turned out by
a plant occupied by workmen. At
tempts have been made to blow up
several fashionable restaurants,
one of which was located in the
basement of the stock exchange
building. .
