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

last Wednesday in Milwaukee by which
nearly a million dollars' worth of prop

be part and parcel of the threatened

the Anarchists have been proclaiming
for some time past.
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

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.

London, Dec. 29.—The authorities ap

the Dubtin explosion, by which Detec

work of a band of conspirators, that
they have cent Detective Biarritz to

him from outrage. Home Secretary

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.
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.

New York, Dec. 29.—The Times states
that Secretary of the Treasury Foster's

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. The president not only re
fused to approve the deal, but went fur

for issuing bonds, and he did not pro
pose that any should be issued while he

One Republican Elector.
Bismarck, N. 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

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

Blame ia slowly improving, but he ia
still very ill. An impression now pre
vails to the effect that while he is a very
sick man he ia in no immediate danger
of death. No one ia bold enough, how
ever, to assert that Blame will ever
again be a well man.

Pugilistic Notes.
By tho Associated Press.
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
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.
Second —Smith stopped Van Heeßt
with a left jolt on the jaw. Smith's su
perior height and reach made it difficult
for Van Heest to find him, but he up
pcr-cut bim with hia left. 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
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
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.
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
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
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.

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
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

General Garcia'* Defeat Not Credited.
Colonel Hernandez's Cane.
Ciiy of Mexico, Dec. 29. The report
that 300 Mexican troops under General
Garcia had been routed by 250 revolu
tionists at Laß Diinas, west of Guerrero,
ia believed to be without foundation.
Garcia telegraphed the government yes
terday, but said nothing about the re
ported engagement.
The appeal ot Colonel Hernandez ia
being heard in the eupieme court.
Counsel for the defendant arguea that
Garza, with whom Hernandez waa con
nected, waa not a revjlutioniat but a
common bandit. The death sentence
imposed upon Hernandez is likely to be
confirmed by the court, but a pardon is
expected afterward.
