A DAY OF SENSATIONS A Mysterious Explosion in Dublin Castle. Did the Physical Force Party Explode a Bomb? Or Was It Merely Escaped Gas That Was Ignited? A Big Dynamite Scare In Paris—A Crank Atrested for Bombarding the British Honse of Commons. Associated Press Dispatches. Dublin, Dec. 31.—-A decided sensation was caused in this city today my a ru mor that the "Physical Force" party had again resumed operations here, and that their first attempt would be against Dublin castle, the official residence of the earl of Zetland, viceroy of Ireland. It has transpired that a number of workmen were employed in making alterations lately in the yard about the castle. One ot the places which was being overhauled was an office directly under the room in which the privy coun cil holds its meetings. While the work men were pursuing their occupations there was suddenly a tremendous report in the office above re ferred to, which shook the build ing. Nobody was hurt. The police were immediately notified and began an investigation of the affair. The dam age to the castle was heavy. The ceil ing of the two floors above the cellar were blown to pieces. The furniture in the office beneath the privy council chamber was completely smashed and destroyed. The affair' created consternation among the people living and employed about the castle.. All the dynamite outrages perpetrated in London and other places in Great Britain are called to mind, and a large number of people have no other opinion than that the "Physical Force" party have again put the policy of terrorism into effect. The Irish authorities immediately tel egraphed to London summoning to their assistance Colonel Magendie, chief in spector of explosives, of the home office. The inspector of explosives of this city declares that the explosion was caused by a large quantity of gun cotton. A meeting of toe privy council was to have been held tonight, and it is supposed the miscreants made some miscalculation in their arrangements for timing the ex plosion. It was later announced that one of the principal clerks in the office of the chief secretary for Ireland had a very narrow escape from death by the explosion. This evening the castle officials state that after the first feeling of alarm passed away, the consequences of the explosion were found less serious than they had feared. The expenditure of a few pounds, they say, will repair the damage. The privy council meta= usual after the explosion. Chief of Police Malon says the force of the explosion was exerted chiefly in an outward direc tion, and it was possibly an explosion of gas. PARIS STARTLED. Exposure of » Dynamite Flat an the Part of Ruaaian Refugees. Parib, Dec. 31. —Today the people of Paris were btartled by runors published in Le Soleii and other newspapers that a plot was discovered in the Russian colony, having for its object the destruc tion ot the building in which the cham ber of deputies meets and also the build ing occupied by the Russian embassy. The conspirators, it was said, had ar ranged to blow up these buildings with dynamite. Knowledge of the plot came to the police in some unknown manner, and an investigation was set on foot. The rumor must have had some basis in truth, for many refugee Russians re siding in Paris and the suburbß have been taken into custody. A number of houses occupied by suspects have been searched by the police, and it is reported a quantity of incriminating documents were found. SHOWED HIS CONTEMPT. A Crank Arrested for Bombarding the House of Commons. London, Dec. 31.—A man named Bor las, a graduate of Oxford university, was arrested today while he was amusing himself by bombarding the house of commons with a revolver. In court Borlas declared that he was an anarchist and he wanted to show his contempt for the house of commons. He decided that shooting at the house would be the proper course to show his contempt The prisoner was remanded for further hearing. The opinion is that the man is mentally unbalanced. CABLE FLASHES. Samuel Adjai Crowther, bishop of the Niger territory, is dead. Fifty Nihilists, suspected of being con nected with a conspiracy formed in Mos cow, are on trial in 'Warsaw citadel. Among the prisoners are four women. Prince Victor Hobonloho, who was aojourning in London and had been for some time suffering from cancer, died, Thursday, from the effects of influenza. The French chamber has rejected the duty of 24 francs placed on petroleum by the senate, and agreed to a duty of 12 francs on refined and 7 francs on crude petroleum. The tariff bill was then finally passed. Five criminals who escaped from prieon at Montpeher, France, after strangling the warden and a fellow pris oner, were all recaptured. They were mobbed on the way back to prison, and the infuriated crowd nearly succeeded in lynching them. Jos. A. Sheferth, formerly secretary and treasurer of the Boyal Arcanum Buildiug and Loan association of Brook lyn, N. V., has been arrested in London on the charge of embezzling $20,000 from the association, and puirendered for ex tradition to the United States. BLOWING IN THE SURPLUS.

Washington, Dec. 31—The revenues of ihe government for the month of De cember were $28,500,000, or $2,500,000 less than the expenditures for ibe same period.

Must Be Born for the Stage, Says John W. Norton. "How are actors made?" The ques tioner had John W. Norton backed into a corner of his office in the Grand opera house. "The Great Maker of All makes them," said Mr. Norton. "Is He always satisfied with the job?" "There is no reason why he should not be. He makes actors, and not pre tenders. Sometimes I have had pre tenders on my hands to train—that is to educate, anyhow to try to educate. But actors are born, and not made. Teachers may develop their talents, nothing more. I never have bat one student at a time —and one student is enough. At present a very capable woman is studying with me, and she is developing talent that will count in the future. I cannot tell her name, but she will win." Mr. Norton has had a wide experience in teaching aspirants for histrionic achievements. "You can't make an actor or an actress any more than you can make a poet," said be. "Those who make a success on the stage come from ail classes. They are not always born from parents who are stage people. For instance, there is Joe Jefferson, who came from a family of actors; yet his two eons by his first wife have no am bition or bent for stage work, while a son by his second wife has decided abil ity in that direction. It is true that the birth ability very oftea skips a genera tion. It may be developed in the sec ond or third generation. You will al ways find that the born actor comes from a family of actors —maybe remote in the ancestry, but the inborn talent is there somewhere." LIKE THE WOULD-BE rOETS. Mr. Norton said further that editors see in the applicants for space in print the same class of people as those who ap ply for room on the stage. The one who wants a start on the stage is very much like the one who wants to write for the daily press. He or she, as a rule, has an idea tha„ be or she is qualified for the high rank —that the lower end of the ladder is for some one else. Those who know absolutely nothing about newspa per work apply for the highest places in newspaper offices. Only the experi enced man asks to get a start on a level with the working force. He who be lieves that he is a born actor has no pa tience with the position of an under study. He has studied the star points, and he insists upon going at once into impersonations of the greatest charac ters. Those who have made the greatest success on the stage seem to have stum bled into the places that they occupy. They may have had long-standing am bitions, but they did not strike the level for years. Joe Etnmett, Lotta, Sol Smith Russell —dozens of them were hangers-on about the stage before they made a good name or money. Sol Smith Russell came from a family of actors. He was never interested in anything else but the stage. When he was a boy in a mercantile house it was his habit to get all the boys he could lind about him and from a box give im provised characterizations. Acting was born with him, yet it required years for him to make a mark. Mary Anderson bad a natural bent for the stage. She was ambitious, and had talent with ambition. She did not come from parents who had been on the stage. She was the pretty daughter of a widow of Louisville, and when she made her first appearance she was de clared a failure. But friends stood by her more in sympathy than for any other reason. She was as persistent as ambitious, and she won. A well known editor of Louisville lived near the home of Mary Anderson at this time. He was a mild-mannered man and became interested in Mi6S Anderson. He thought that she was lack-leg in ability, but he wantrd her to have a fair chance. He gave her encouragement in print and he gave his personal influence to aid her. After a while she became famous on the stage and mistortune befell the editor. He had a government position, and when Cleveland was elected to the presidency trouble came. The editor was short in his accounts. Mies Anderson was in another part of the country, but she heard of the trouble. She at once made inquiry by telegraph and found that the shortage had been made up, with the exception of $6000. Mies An derson acted promptly in telegraphing the money to cover the deficiency. ACTOR AND NOTHING ELSE. "An actor is generally fit for nothing but the stage," said Mr. Norton. "You can't make anything else of him. If he shows any capacity on the stage, help him along and some day he will strike his class." Said James T. Powers of A Straight Tip: "My observations lead me to the belief that the man who ia successful on the stage is successful at nothing else. He cau't keep books, nor can he be a salesman. Like your good shoemaker he must stick to his last. I hardly know how I got on the stage. I always was infatuated with acting, and finally the way opened to me. And here I am. So are hundreds of others. The stage has an education peculiar to itself. A man cannot be a good actor in any branch on the stage unless he has brain. He may not have an education from a college curriculum, but he has the brain and he has educated himeelf. The great actors, like the great editors, were educated within their professions."—fSt. Louis Republic. Spiritualistic Phenomena. Dr. Henry Cook, the medium who some years ago made quite a sensation in Mew York through his spiritualistic manifestations, will make his first ap pearance in this city on Sunday night, January 3id, at the Los Angeles theater. Ail agree that the seance is extraordin aiy, to a degree remarkable, unexcelled by any seance of the kind before the public. Cook leaves his audience free to draw their own inferences as to the motive force of his manifestations, neither claiming, as some do, to have the aid of supernatural powers, nor con fessing that he is alone dependent upon his own exertions and dexterity. 'If I do not have invisible aid, pray tell me how I do these things?" A highly nervous, but bright, intelligent gentle man, he seems to be, without power to do one-half the feats that are made a regular part of his seance. At the theater Sunday night the skeptical will be at liberty to subject the gentleman to any reasonable test and free to detect what they can.

His First View of America Was at Wattins's Island. Tho Discoverer's Remains Reposing: at San Domingo. Sentence of Yuma Indians Commuted. The Interstate Commerce Commis sion Wrestles With the Free Pass Question. Associated Press DfsDatcaes. Washington, Dec. 31.—At the last day's session of the American Historical society, President Adams of Cornell university read an interesting paper on "Recent discoveries concerning Colum bus." Volumes have been written on the subject of the first landing place of Columbus in the new world and the resting place of his remains. President Adams is of the opinion that these ques tions were definitely settled by recent investigations of the German explorer Rudolf Cronen, who went, about a year ago, to the Bahamas to study the gui a tions. President Adams' paper reviewed thi work of Cronen and gave the first information of the result of the ex plorer's labors. Cronen's conclusion is that the first landing was on Wattins's island, and at or near Graham's harbor, on the west side of the island. This conclusion was arrived at after a most careful inspec tion of all authorities, comparisons with Columbus's journal, etc. Of still more- importance are his in vestigations in regard to the resting places of the remains of Columbus. Cronen is convinced that the Span ish authorities are mistaken in sup posing that the remains were transferred to Havana from San Domingo. On the 11th of July last, Cronen, in the pres ence of the archbishop and a number of civil officials, as well as the consuls of the foreign governments at San Domingo, opened a casket believed by the local authorities to contain the remains of Columbus. These had been sealed at the time the vault containing them was discovered in 1877. Cronen photographed all the inscrip tions with great care. They are found to differ very considerably from the rep resentation previously published, and in the opinion of the explorer are incon testably genuine. The situation of the vault indicated that it was constructed before that which contained the re mains taken to Havana. The remains of Columbus were taken from Spain to San Domingo about 1541, whereas the remains of his son and grandson were not transported till the beginning of the seventeenth century. It seems improb able that a leaden box containing the remains of Columbus would have no mark by which it could be identified, as was the case with the box taken to Havana in 1795. The box discovered in the vault opened in 1877 contains five inscriptions, and Cronen believeß the charge of fraud* brought by Spanish officials against the authorities of San Domingo is unfound ed. He says the inscriptions themselves, when carefully studied, show they are old; that the processes of oxidization which have gone on since they were made preclude the possibility of their being modern. In conclusion he thinks the proof should be regarded as complete that the remains of Columbus are still at San Domingo. KAILHUAD PASSES. Newspaper Men, Hotel Keepers and Ico Dealers Ought tt> Have Them. Washington, Dec. 31.—The interstate commerce commission today announced its decision in the railroad pass case of the Boßton and Maine railway. In its answer it states that it was in the habit of giving passes us a business feature of its administration to numerous classes of persons which it specified in the answer. The commission, in its opin ion, discusses the statute, and cities authorities at some length, and con- eludes: "The construction we give to section 2 of the act is that where for different passengers the charge to one is greater or less compensation than to another, constitutes unjust discrimination and iB unlawful, unless the charge of luch greater or less compensation 13 allowed under the exceptions pro vided in section 22; and where the traffic is under substantially similar cir cumstances and conditions in other re spects, not rendered dissimilar within the meaning of the statute, by the fact that such passenger* hold unlike, or as Eometimes termed unequal, official, so cial, or business positions, or belong to different classes as they ordinarily exist in the community, or are arbitrarily created by the carrier. This would ex clude the right to give interstate passes to certain classes, specified in the an swer, which ; Gentlemen emi nent in the public service; the higher officers of state; prominent officers of the United States; members of railroad legislative committees, and persons whose good will is important to the cor poration." There were other classes of pass holders named in the answer, whose passes, though in form free, were free only in name, because in reality there was come consideration for them, such as issued to newspapers in exchange for advertising; to hotel proprietors, ice dealers and to some other persons who are claimed to stand on a special ground of right. As to this class of persons the commission said the investigation would have to be extended to enable it to pass satisfactory judgment t.iereon; and to avoid the delay which a proper and full investigation of these classes would occasion, and in view of their minor importance, and yet, perhaps, greater difficulty of de, cision, and of the urgency that defend ant be informed at, this time of the de cision on the leading questions, namely : The general construd ion of the statute upon the subject of free transportation, the commission concluded to hold the case as to such special classes of persons for such investigation as might be neces sary to put them in full possession of all the facts before finally passing upon them, and in the meantime to issue an order applicable to the classes first named, in accordance with the construc tion above set forth, this being pursuant to the practice in other cases. Tobacco Statistics, Washington, Dec, 31. —The census bureau today issued a bulletin giving statistics of tobacco production in the United States. The entire crop in the country amounted in 1888 to 488,255.396 pounds, the number of planters being 205.802, and the area devoted to tobacco culture, exclusive of counties cultivating less than one acre, 692.990 acres. The total value of the crop, estimated on the basis of actual sales, was $34,844,448, an average of 7.1 cents per pound, or $50.28 per acre. The averaste price per pound in states pioducing 5,000,000 pounds or upward, ranged from 4 5 cents, in Mis i-ouri, and 4 7 cents in Maryland, to 12 8 cents in Connecticut, and 14 cents in Norjth Carolina. In Louisiana it aver aced 25.5 cents per pound to the pro ducer. WII.I. NOT HANG. The President Commutes the Sentence of the Yuma Indians. Washington, D.

Washington. Dec. 31.—The American Society of Church History has decided to place at the world's fair a suitable ex hibit. Boeing the Fair on the Installment Plan. An organization has formed a pi€». whereby any one in New York may visit the World's fair, paying their expenses on the installment plan. A membership fee of five dollars is charged to pay the running expenses of the society. The remaining payments are in installments of, say, one dollar a week for fifty-five weeks. To provido against loss of the people's savings by accident or fraud, all moneys so deposited are turned over to the New York Security and Trust company. Un der the deed of trust the society gets no money from the Trust company until the members have been given their ticket and coupons providing for their transportation and board. Each mem ber then signs a receipt, and on presenta tion of a number of these to the Trust company it releases a corresponding amount of money. The benefits, to be furnished at any time after the opening of the World's Columbian exposition, on fifteen days' notice, up to twenty days preceding its closing, are: A first class railway ticket from a designated point to Chicago and return. Transfer in Chicago for self and usual allowance of baggage from station to hotel or lodgings and return. Seven days' hotel accommodations in Chicago.

An accident insurance ticket in a re liable company for fifteen days, com mencing on date of departure from home, paying $3,000 in case of death by accident, or $10 per week in case of acci dental injury.—New York World. Queer Phenomenon at Sea. Captain J. Roben, commander of the Lloyd steamer Neckar, has written to the German marine observatory in Bre men that when he was off Sakota, on Sept. 1, at 9 p. in., the sea suddenly be came an even milk white luminous color, which at times seemed to flame up from the depths of the water, like the in creased glow' of an electric lamp when the current grows too strong. No bottom was found when the lead was sunk, and at 10 p. m. the sharp edge between the bright and the dark water was reached. After twenty-five minutes quite bright water again appeared, and after 11 p. m. it decreased. The next night the phenomenon was observed to Instill more intense, but after that it was not again met with. The appearance had nothing in common with the usual phosphorescence of the sea. During its presence the horizon was everywhere distinctly visible, except where at various changing points on the horizon the light seemed to shine bright ly, at which time a thin haze seemed to lie on the water. —LondoK News. Why Coffee Is Adulterated. The main reason for the adulteration of .coffee i 3 that there is not enough of it to go around. Mocha now sells at the highest price ever known, which is about 25 cents a pound in large quantities for the green bean. Pure Java sells for 23 cents a pound and pure Rio for 14J cents a pound. These are very high prices and the supply of the best grades is limited. The temptations to adultera tion are now therefore at the highest. Some low grade Brazil coffee was recent ly sold at 11 cents a pound, and, when that comes to be doctored by the grind ers, the coffee part of the product will be small. There is a wide difference between 35 cents a pound and 10 cents. It is a difference between the best and the poorest, and generally represents the difference between the pure article and the adulterated.—New York Sun, Texan Oysters.

Gifts of Very Poor Children. The children in the free kindergarten in West Fifty-fourth street received an ohject lesson in charity on Thanksgiving day. Most of these children arc of poor parentage, some of them even destitute. A day or two before Thanksgiving day their teachers talked to them in a kindly way about the real purpose and spirit of the day. They had nartured the idea that it was a feast day, and that they ought to have a nice dinner in the school. The teachers told them that they could best manifest their thankful ness for the blessings they enjoyed by contributing some little gift to make others, poorer than themselves, happy. There was no urging that the children should give, but merely the suggestion. On Thanksgiving day an autumn festi val was held at the free kindergarten, and one of its most interesting and beau tiful features was the offering of gifts for the poor by these poor children. They marched in procession around a large table and deposited their little tokens. One very small boy brought a big red apple, another a small paper of candy, still another a much worn picture book, and a fourth laid a set of jackstones on the table. But it was the offering of a poorly clad and pale faced little girl that touched the hearts of the observers most keenly. She modestly placed upon the table a single sprig of geranium, which had doubtless been plucked from a care fully nurtured home plant. There were other more pretentions and valuable gifts, and all were gathered up and dis tributed among the poor patients in the various city hospitals.—New York Times. The Alligator Played 'Possum. An alligator that played 'possum came near doing damage to some young men near Millen Monday. Van Tyler, of this place, together"with Messrs. Apple white and DeLoach, of Millen, had been out to the river hunting. They had killed a 'gator about seven fee: long, and putting him in the wagon were bringing him to the town. Van, who was sitting near the middle of the wagon, began to triumph over his fallen enemy by con temptuously kicking him iv the side. Then a thing happened that was done so quick the boys can't explain it. There was a rush, a snap, a yell, and Van went out the wagon head foremost, and leav ing as a souvenir a part of his pants hanging on the 'gator's teeth. The other boys woke up to the im portance of hasty action, but DeLoach took a little too much time in getting ready for an old fashioned head fore most dive into a sand bed, hence ho struck the ground minus a shoe heel, which his 'gatorship gratefully swal lowed and slyly 'wunk' his eye as if he enjoyed a lively time himself. The boys rallied from their stampede, and advancing with guns put an end to their foe. —Waynesboro (Ga.) True Citi zen.
