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

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

BLOWING IN THE SURPLUS.
The Cash Balance lv the Treasury Get
ting Very Lim.
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. This had the effect of reducing
the treasury cash balance to $30,405,749,
including $14,000,000 in subsidiary sil
ver, and $12,350,027 on deposit with
national banks. The balance December

The principal item in disbursements for
the month was $13,125,000 on account

HOW THE ACTOR IS MADE.
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. A small admission fee
will be charged to defray expenses.

WASHINGTON NOTES.
Recent Discoveries Concern-
ing Columbus.
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

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.

A Church History Kxhiblt.
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.
Six admission tickets to the Columbian
exposition.
Dinner at a restaurant on the grounds
for six days.
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,

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
