Renewed Activity on the Part of the Anarchists. A Bomb Exploded in the Prefecture of Police In Paris. The Dublin Outrage Believed to Be Part of the General Plot—The A Reds Closely Watched in This Country. By the Associated Press. New York, Dec. 29. —A morning paper tomorrow will say: Tbe New York and Chicago police are stirred up over tbs recent manifestations of activity by the dynamiters. The Reds are being care fully watched in tbis country. Yester day's explosion of a bomb in the Paris prefecture of police, the Dublin out rages laet Saturday, and the explosion last Wednesday in Milwaukee by which nearly a million dollars' worth of prop erty was destroyed, are now believed to be part and parcel of the threatened scheme of world-wide destruction which the Anarchists have been proclaiming for some time past. PARIS DYNAMITERS. A Bomb Exploded In the Office of tha Prefecture of Police. Pakis, Dec. 29.—An explosion oc curred in a corridor in the office of the prefecture of police at 1:30 this morn ing, breaking the windows, damaging the woodwork and tearing down some plastering. Nobody was hurt. It is not definitely known whether the ex plosion was that of an Anarchist bomb or of gaa accumulated in the building, but it ia not generally believed Anarch ists had anything to do with it, though they would like to have it understood that they did it aa a warning against the coming proaeention of Anarchist Fran cois, recently extradited from England for complicity in the Cafe Very ex plosion. An investigation by experts shows that tbe explosion was the work of Anarchists who placed a bomb in tbe hall heavily charged with chlorate of powder. The incident causes much alarm, lest the dynamite campaign ie about to be renewed. THE DUBLIN OUTRAGE. It Has Beared the Authorities!— Detectives Guard ioc Gladstone. London, Dec. 29.—The authorities ap pear to be co strongly convinced that the Dubtin explosion, by which Detec tive- Synett lost his life, was p*rt 01 '>o work of a band of conspirators, that they have cent Detective Biarritz to keep guard over Gladstone and protect him from outrage. Home Secretary Asquith ia also protected when he goes out in public by detectives in civilian attire. In view of all the precautione taken, the opinion prevails that the au thorities are in possession of definite and important information aa to the ex istence ot a formidable dynamite con spiracy. Dublin, Dec. 29.—Considerable ex citement has been caused in borne rule circles by news that the imperial au thorities have directed the employment of the spy, Le Caron, to trace out the guilty parties connected with the Dublin explosion. PERSECUTION OF THE JEWS. The Lot ot the Hebrews Made Very Hard In Russia. , London, Dec. 29.—The latest advicea from St. Petersburg and other parte of Ruasia show that tbe persecution of the Jews and the inhumanity of the Czar'a officials toward the unhappy race are Sreater than ever before. Six edicts aye been issued, aiming to disperse the Jewish subjects of Russia, weaken their position in the trading centers and crush out their religion. The edicts are en forced with the severest rigor every where. Moscow papers boast that aince tbe beginning of 1891, 20,000 Jews have been converted to the orthodox faith. The condition of the Jews, except in Lods and a few other places, is becom ing steadily worse, particularly in tbe case of those who have no meana to bribe Russian officials. THE POfE DISPLEASED. American Prelatea Suspected of Insubor dination to the Vatican. Rome, Dec. 29.—Cables from the United States in regard to the differ ences of opinion existing there are at tracting more attention among Roman ecclesiastics than almost any other for eign topic. Some advicea received are construed as indicating insubordination toward the papal authority in high quarters in America. Should this be shown to the satisfaction of the Vatican, decisive action, it is rumored, will be taken to enforce complete and unequivocal obedience to tbe will of tbe supreme pontiff, no matter who may be affected by the pontifical action. RAILROADERS IN SESSION. The Federation Proposition lining Fa vorably Considered. Cedar Rapids, la., Dec. 29.—The chief officers of the conductors', switch men's, trainmen's, firemen's and tele graphers' brotherhoods have been hold ing a secret conference in this city today with federation for the chief topic of discussion.

Finally a com mittee of one from each delegation waa appointed to draft a plan and submit it tomorrow morning. Smallpox In Htvburr. Washington, Dec. 29.—A cable mes sage was received at the state depart ment today from United States Consul Eates, at Hamburg, saying: "In the city there were today seven cases of cholera, of which one died; none in the port."

New York, Dec. 29.—The Times states that Secretary of the Treasury Foster's trip to tbis city was not on private bus inesa as given out officially, but for the purpose of consulting Wall etreet mag nates on the propoeition to relieve the money market and check the import of gold by having the government issue 150,000,000 to $100,000,000 bonds. The president's co-operation was counted on, but this waa suddenly discovered to be delusive.

D., Dec. 29. —Wamburg, one of the Harrison electors, will receive a certificateo( election, notwithstanding the order of the court to count the famoua Selz precinct, which would, if counted in time, have elected all three Weaver electors. Under the state law the governor ia required to iaeue a proc lamation of the vote for electors within 10 days after the state canvas, and 10 days therefrom is allowed for noticee of contest.

SHROUDED IN MYSTERY. Was Miss Ayres Murdered or Did She Commit Suicide. Sacramento, Dec. 29.—There were no new developments in the Brighton Junc tion tragedy up to 10 o'clock tonight, and there are not likely to be until Rail road Detective Burke overtakes two men who traded a gold ring at Latrobe for liquor, about 9 a. m. The ring was re ceived here tonight by Superintendent Wright, and Detective Ben True Bay a two frienda of Mies Ayres who have seen it tbink it waa hers. If it can be fully identified as belonging to ber there will be no doubt about her murder by theee men, on whose trail the officers now are. The pay car passed Folsom about 6 o'clock this morning, and the men could have walked there and jumped on tho trucks and riddeu to Latrobe. A freight train also passed Brighton juet before the station waa burned. The woman mpy have been murdered sev eral houre before the fire occurred, and the fire may have .been caused by her dog upsetting a lamp after the murderers were well on the way. Another thing that beara out the theory of murder is that the lock on the door leading from Miss Ayres' room out upon the plat form baa been found and the bolt waa turned back showing tbe door waa not locked. Coroner Clark, however, holds to the suicide theory, based on a love affair. At present the whole thing is a mystery. Blame Very Comfortable. Washington, Dec. 29.—This evening Dr. Johnßton, who had just returned from a visit to Blame, eaid he waa very comfortable. * Blame ia slowly improving, but he ia still very ill.

San Francisco, Dec. 29.—Johnny Van Heest, the Wieconein bantam, was picked tonight, at odds of 20 to 15, aa the prospective winner of his fight with Solly Smith ol Lob Angelee, at the Cal ifornia Athletic club. Smith recently fought a draw with George Siddons, who gave Van Heest a good battle, and be had previously disposed of Dan Daly in good time, bo that ac a shot t-ender he was well liked and freely backed. A $2000 purse and tbe prospect of a match with Dixon was the inducement that brought tbe men together. Peter Jackson entered tbe hall before the fight commenced, and received an enthusiastic reception. In responding he referred to the fact that tbe Califor nia club had on his arrival in this country championed his cause, and be said all he asked was that he might finish what ha had begun. This was taken by the members as an allusion to his famous meeting with Corbett, and a storm of applause greeted his remarks. Van Heest, accompanied by his sec onds, Dannie Needham, Billy Dacey and Jack Hicks, entered the ring at 9:18 p. m. Smith followed, with Sam Fitz patrick and Seward Smith. Smith stripped trim as a racer, while Van Hceat looked like a pudgy little draft horae. Time waa called at 9:25. Smith countered hard with hia left, followed by a bard right swing on tbe head. Thiee rallies followed in which the men swung wild, and Van Heest slipped to the floor. Van Heest stopped Smith with a smashing left drive on the ear aa the round closed.

Smith ' rushed and Van slid across the ring ou bis stomach, and nearly off the plat form in his effort to get away. Third—Van delivered a good left on the jaw, and a left and right swing that ' seat Smith at him like a little fury. Van Heest drove hia left in, swung bis i right and ducked without avail. Smith ruahed him from pillar to post, pushing bim down three times and going down once himself. This was Van litem's ' round though, aud excitement was in tense. Fourth—Van Heest had an unfor tunate fall, with the back ol his head striking the floor. Smith caught, him with a long lead, dropping him, then Btood over him, upper cutting him aa he 1 rose. 1 Van Heest fell again, and the ropea catching hie throat, sent him over with a jolt. He landed a stiff left in S nith's face, and dropped him with a light left counter on the cheek, but Smith thought 1 be had his man on the dowii grade and i would not be stayed. Filth—Van Heest swung his right in i desperation and clinches weie frequent, aud more than once Van went to the floor, borne down by the left smashes of i Smith, who pushed him even through the ropes, falling on him. Referee Jor dan had no easy task in keeping the 1 wildcat Californian within the proper ; bounds. Smith hd<i far the best of this round, and Van Heest was groggy at the close. Sixth—Van HeeBt found difficulty In landing hia swings, but got in hia right on ti.e ribs as Smith ducked and clinched. Van dropped once without being struck and Smith pushed his head to the floor, pinning him down. Van caught hfrn a right smash in the mouth as the round closed, bringing Smith to hia knees It was a wild rough and tumble fight, with plenty of hard bio we intermixed. Seventh —Van stopped Smith with a left on the nose, bringing blood. Smith cent him twice to the floor with a back handed light smash in the face. Van clinched at Smith's lega to save himself when down. Van countered with hia left on Smith's swollen nose and brought him to his knees with a right swing, falling bimeblf. Smith closed ih, round with a bard right on tbe head. Eighth—Van's continued dropping to the floor did not please Smith's friendß, while Van Heeßt'a adherents hissed Smith for hia apparent desire to throw Van whanevergtne men came together. A aeries of good countera with honors about even concluded this round. Ninth—Tbe men were tired and the only blow struck waa a right-bander on the ear by Smith. Tenth—Little done. Eleventh—Ditto. Twelfth—Van Heest started the ball with a left bander and immediately the ring waa a scene of flying handa and lege as Smith rushed in and bore Van to tbe floor repeatedly, falling on him . and taking apparently every unfair ad vantage until every man in the hall waa yelling like a mad man: "Foul!" "Foul!" The referee refused to allow tbe claim. Thirteenth—ThiH round waa much like the twelfth. Van scored a couple of ewinga on the muzzle, which Smith repaid with left drives and both men's noses and mouths bled profusely. Around the ring they wrestled, Van Heest, being the smaller man, getting tbe worst of it, nnd as the round closed Smith waa driving him from corner to corner, upper-cutting him with hia left and right, making one of the roughest exhibitions ever Been in tbe California club. Fourteenth—Van ran, hugged and swung in desperation. Smith threw hini and fell upon him, bearing down on hia neck with his knee. Van Heeet roße and dropped Smith to hia knees with a well directed right. Smith rushed in and 1 PRICE FIVE CENTS. swung his r'ght, eenriing Van down. The latter'a head struck the floor with a thud, and he lay motionless. His sec onds threw up the sponge and Van Heeet waa borne to hia corner. SULLIVAN SPEAKS.

NOW SIX DAYS OVERDUE. THE STEAMER TJ.HBRIA NOT TET arrived in roitr. Eifeet Seen on Christmas Day In a Dis abled Condition—Cunard Olllclals Express Belief in the Ves sels Safety. New Yokk, Dec. 29.—The steamship Umbria has not yet arrived, but the Cunard officers still profese the belief that the vessel is in no especial danger. The Eteamahip Galileo, from Hull, which arrived here this morning, had continuous northwest gales and high, bead seaß throughout, with frequent enow equf.lle. Captain Coleman died on the voyage and was buried at 'sea. De comber 25tb, at sp. m , in latitude 42 deg. 62 mm., longitude 58 dcg. 55 mm., the Galileo sighted the steamer Umbria, apparently disabled, bearing northwest, and bore down close to her. She exhibited three red lights, showing she was unroariHgefibie but not requiring assistance. Though a heavy sea was running, she lav quite easy and comfortable, with the wind blowing a stiff northwest gale. It is eupDost d her machinery wa.* disabled, and the was lying to. making repairs. Next morn ing the Galileo passed two eaßt bound steamers which would render any as sistance if peeded. Captain Jones sayo there need be no alarm in regard to her safety. London, Dec. 29.-Aa the hours lengthen with no tidings of the overdue steamer Umbria, anxiety increases. Tbe relatives and friends of those on board continually visit the offices, of the company or ask by telegraph for intelli gence. While the comp*nv'B sgenta profess to have no fear aa to the safety of the vessel, the un derwriters look upon her as an extra hazardous risk, and reinsurance rates have risen sines yesterday from 12 guineas premium (a very high rate) to 20guineae. A broken shaft would ac count for her delay, but vessel men fear ahe may have Btruck a floating wreck, a number of which have been reported, or her sail area, though eufficieut to work her, is rather limited, and she would make alow headway by wind. * Halifax, N. 8., Dec. 29.-—A rumor iB in circulation here tonight that the dis abled eteamer Umbria had reached Har rington in a sinking condition, but in quiry shows that tiie etoi vis falye. The ship has not. been sighted snywbere off the Nova Scotia const, every part of which has been communicated with MEXICAN ADVICES. General Garcia'* Defeat Not Credited. Colonel Hernandez's Cane.
