Renewed Activity on the Part of the Anarchists. A Bomb Exploded ia the Prefecture of Police in Paris. The Dublin Outrage Believed to Be Part of the fteiisral Plot—Tho ;1 Beds Closely Watched In This Country. By the Associated Press. Nbw York, Dec. 29.—A morning paper tomorrow will say: The New York and Chicago police are stirred up over tbo recent manifestations of activity by the dynamiters. The Beds are being care fully watched in this country. Yester day's explosion ol a bomb in tbe 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 tho Office of tho Prefecture of Police. Paris, Dec. 29 —An explosion oc curred in a corridor in the office of the prefecture of police at 1:30 this morn ing, breaking tbe windows, damaging the woodwork and tearing down come plastering. Nobody was hurt. It is not definitely known whether the ex plosion was tbat of an Anarchist bomb or of gas accumulated in the building, but it is not generally believed Anarch ists had anything to do with it, though they would like to have it understood that they did it as a warning against the coming proseeotion of Anarchist Fran cois, recently extradited from England for complicity in the Cafe Very ex plosion. An investigation by experts shows that the 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 tbe dynamite campaign ie about to be renewed. . THE DUBLIN OUTRAGE. It Hu Beared the A ulhorltlot—Detectives Guarding- Gladstone. London, Dec. 29.—The authorities ap pear to be co strongly, convinced that the Dubfin explosion, by which Detec tive Synott lost his life, was pwri, oi tfse ' work of a band of conspirators, that they have sent Detective Biarritz to keep guard over Gladstone and protect him from outrage. Home Secretary Asquith is also protected when he goes out in public by detectives in civilian attire. In view of all the precautions taken, the opinion prevails that the au thorities are in possession of definite and important information as to the ex istence of a formidable dynamite con spiracy. Dublin, Dec. 29.—Considerable ex citement has been caused in home rule circles by news tbat the imperial au thorities have directed the employment of the spy, Le Caron, to trace out the guilty parties connected with tbe Dublin explosion. PERSECUTION OF THK JKWS. Tbe Lot of the Hebrews Had* Very Hard In Russia. . London, Dec. 29.—The latest advices from St. Petersburg and other parts of Russia show tbat the persecution of the Jews and the inhumanity of the Czar's officials toward the unhappy race are greater than ever before. Six edicts nave been issued, aiming to disperse the Jewish subjects of Russia, weaken their position ia the trading centers and crush ont their religion. The edicts are en forced with the severest rigor every where. Moscow papers boast that since tbe beginning of 1891, 20,000 Jews have been converted to the orthodox faith. The condition of the Jews, except in Lodz and a few other places, iB becom ing steadily worse, particularly in tbe case of those who have no means to bribe Russian officials. THK POPE DIBFLBASKD. American Prelates Suspected of Insubor dination to the Vatican. Romk, Dec. 29.—Cables from the United States in regard to the differ ences of opinion existing there are at tracting more attention among Romun ecclesiastics than almost any other for eign topic. Some advices 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 ie rumored, will be taken to enforce complete and unequivocal obedience to the will of the supreme pontiff, no matter who may be affected by the pontifical action. RAILROADERS IN SESSION. The Federation Proposition Being; 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. The sessions occupied the entire day and when completed but lit tle had been accomplished beyond the fact tbat most of tbe representatives had shown that they were in favor of some sort of a union. Finally a com mittee of one from each delegation was appointed to draft a plan and submit it tomorrow morning. Smallpox In Hamburg;. Washington, Dec. 29.—A cable mes sage was received at the state depart ment today from United States Consul Estee, at Hamburg, saying: "In the city there were today seven cases of cholera, of which one died; none in the port."

Omaha, Neb., Dec. 29.—A warrant has been sworn out for George Williams (colored) on tho charge of murder, and the police are looking for him.

Shortly after dinner that evening the family were taken sick and one of the babies died yesterday. Tbe sickness of the family is due to poison, but there is nothing to indicate what sort of drug was used. The sickness re sulted from drinking coffee. Ewing and wife were seriously ill all day, but were better this afternoon and will probably jecover. FOSTER OIV'KN A REBUFF. The Presdent Vetoes His Scheme to Is sue Bonds. New York, Dec, 29. —Tbe Times states that Secretary of the Treasury Foster's trip to this city was not on private bus iness as given out officially, but for the purpose of consulting Wall street mag nates on the proposition to relieve the money market and check the import of gold by having tbe government issue 160,000,000 to $100,000,000 bondß. The president's co-operation was counted on, but this was suddenly discovered to be delusive. The president not only re fused to approve the deal, but went fur ther and declared he could see no excuse for issuing bonds, and he did not pro pose that any should be issued while he was president. Yellow Fever In Venezuela. Caracas, Venezuela, Dec. 29.—Yel low fever is epidemic in La Guayra. The mortality here continues to in crease, and in the smaller towns down the valley is spreading in every direc tion. Here yellow fever and typhoid are causing a monthly death rate double that of the British city, without a sewer age system or other sanitary require ments. NEW YORK SENATORSHIP MR.

Hill, Richard Croker, Lieuten ant-Governor Sheehan and Edward Murphy, jr., held a three hours' confer ence this afternoon. The subject under discussion waß Mr,' Murphy's chances for the senatorehip, and it is reported, if it is foreseen within the next few days that the chairman's candidacy is too strongly opposed, another man iriendly to Hill and antagonistic to the president-elect will be selected for United States senator. Tbe information comes from a very reliable source. One Republican Elector. Bismarck, N. D , Dec. 29. —Wamburg, one of the Harrison electors, will receive a certificateof election, notwithstanding the order of the court to count the famous Selz precinct, which would, if counted jn time, have elected all three Weaver electors. Under the state law the governor is required to iseue a proc lamation of the vote for electors within 10 dayß after the state canvas, and 10 days therefrom is allowed for notices of contest. Tbis time expired yesterday, and as no notice has been served on tbe governor he will issue certificates to two Fusion and one Republican elector. Defective Certificates. Cheyenne, Wyo., Dec. 29.—The su preme court today, Chief Justice Groes beck dissenting, in the course of a long decision practically decided that defectb in certificates of nomination under the Australian election law, even after elec tion, were a bar to officers taking seats. SHROUDED IN MY9TKKY. Whs 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 he 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 says two friends of Miss Ayres who have seen it think it was hers. If it can be fully identified as belonging to ber there will be no doubt about her murder by these men, on whose trail the officers now are. The pay car passed Folsom about 6 o'clock tbis morning, and the men could have walked there and jumped on the trucks and ridden to Latrobe. A freight train aleo passed Brighton just before the station was burned. The woman mey have been murdered sev eral hours 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 bears out the theory of murder is that the lock on the door leading from Miss Ayres' room out upon the plat form has been found and the bolt was turned back showing the door was 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. Johnston, who had just returned from a visit to Blame, said be was very comfortable. * Blame is slowly improving, but he is still very ill. An impression now pre vails to the effect that while he is a very sick man he is in no immediate danger of death. No one is bold enough, how ever, to assert that Blame will ever again be a well man. . Cholera at Bremen. Bbeimn, Deo. 29.—Five cases of dis ease, suspected to be cholera, have been discovered among the troops here. Sol diers belonging to neighboring garri son are forbidden to visit Hamburg.

It Was a Rough and Tumble Fight from Start to Finish. The Wisconsin Man's Backers Threw Up tbe Sponge at the End of the Fourteenth Round. Pugilistic Motes. By tbo Associated Press. San Francisco, Dec. 29.—Johnny Van Heest, the Wisconsin bantam, was picked tonight, at odds of 20 to 15, as the prospective winner of hia fight with Solly Smith of Los Angeles, at the Cal ifornia Athletic club. Smith recently fought a draw with George Siddons, who gave Van Heest a good battle, and he had previously disposed of Dan Daly in good time, co that as a short-ender he was well liked and freely backed. A $2000 purse and the prospect of a match with Dixon was the inducement that brought the men together. Peter Jackson entered tbe hall before tbe tight 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 be asked was tbat he might finish what ha had begun. This was taken by tbe members as an allusion to bis 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 tbe ring at 9:18 p. m. Smith followed, with Sam Fitz patrick and Seward Smith. Smith stripped trim as a racer, while Van Heest looked like a pudgy little draft horse. Time was called at 9:25. Smith countered hard with his left, followed by a bard right swing on the head. Thiee rallies fo.lowed in which the men swung wild, and Van Heest slipped to the floor. Van Heest stopped Smith with a smashing left drive on tbe ear as the round closed. Second —Smith stopped Van Heest with a left jolt on tbe jaw. Smith's su perior height and reach made it difficult for Van Heest to find him, but he up pcr-cut him with his left. Smith tuahed and Van slid across the ring on his 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 sent Smith at him like a little fury. Van Heest drove hia left in, swung bia right and ducked without avail. Smith rushed him from pillar to post, pushing him down three times and going down once himself. This was Van Heeßt's round though, and excitement was in tense. Fourth—Van Heest had an unfor tunate fall, with the back of his head striking the floor. Smith caught him with a long lead, dropping him, then stood over him, upper cutting him as he rose. Van Heest fell again, and the ropes catching hie throat, sent him over with a jolt. He landed a stiff left in Smith's face, and dropped him with a light left counter on tha cheek, but Smith thought be had his man on the dowa grade and would not. be stayed. Fifth —Van Heest swung his right in desperation and clinches were frequent, and more than once Van went to the floor, borne down by tbe left smashes of Smith, who pushed him even through the ropes, falling on him. Referee Jor dan had no easy task in keeping the wildcat Californian within the proper bounds. Smith had far the best of this round, and Van Heest was groggy at the close. Sixth —Van Heest found difficulty In landing his swings, but got in his right on tbe ribs as Smith ducked and clinched. Van dropped once without bei»g struck and Smith pushed his head to the floor, pinning him down. Van caught firm a right smash in the mouth as tbe round closed, bringing Smith to his knees It was a wild rough and tumble tight, with plenty of hard blows intermixed. Seventh—Van stopped Smith with a left on the nose, bringing blood. Smith sent him twice to the floor witb a back handed light smash in the face. Van clinched at Smith's legs to save himself when down. Van countered with his left on Smith's swollen nose and brought him to his knees with a right swing, falling himetlf. Smith closed th<j round with a hard tight on the head. Eighth—Van's continued dropping to the floor did not please Smith's friends, while Van Heeßt's adherents hiseed Srcith for his apparent desire to throw Van wbeneverjthe men came together. A series of good counters with honors about even concluded this round. Ninth —The men were tired and the only blow struck was a right hander on the ear by Smith. Tenth—Little done. Eleventh—Ditto. Twelfth—Van Heest started the ball with a left hander and immediately tbe ring was a scene of flying hands and lege as Smith rushed in and bore Van to the floor repeatedly, falling on him . and taking apparently every unfair ad vantage until every man in the hall was yelling like a mad man: "Foul!" "Foul!" The referee refused to allow tbe claim. Thirteenth—Thia round was much like the twelfth. Van scored a couple of swings 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, and as the round closed Smith was driving him from corner to corner, upper-cutting him with his left and right, making one of the roughest exhibitions ever seen in tbe California club. Fourteenth—Van ran, bugged and swung in desperation. Smith threw him and fell upon him. bearing down on hia neck with his knee. Van Heest roße and dropped Smith to his knees with a well directed right. Smith rushed in and PRICE FIVE CENTS. swung his right, ending Van down. Thelatter'a head struck the floor with a thud, aud he lay motionless. His sec onds threw up the sponge and Van Heest was borne to his corner. SULLIVAN SPEAKS. —- «»»« v » m.-5 .

Sullivan is playing, was treated to a stirring speech by the ex-champion to night. He said he had not the remotest idea of lighting Cor bett again. Sullivan said alao that the allegations he hod made againßt his backers were baeed on sound facts. So far as the report tbat be was crazy was concerned, it was all bosh, as his per sonal appearance and speech could prove. Daly Polishes Off McCarthy.

NOW SIX DAYS OVERDUE. THE STEAMER B.HBKIA NOT VET ARBIVJKD IN roitr. Last Seen on Christmas Day in a Dis abled Condition— Cunard Officials Express Belief in the Ves sel's Safely. New York, Dec. 29.—The steamship Umbria has not yet arrived, but the Cunard officers still profess the belief tbat the vessel is in no especial danger. The steamship Galileo, from Hull, which arrived here this morning, had continuous northwest gales and high bead seas throughout, with frequent snow squalls. Captain Coleman died on the voyage and was buried at 'sea. De comber 25tb, at sp. m , in latitude 42 deg. 52 mm., longitude 58 deg. 55 mm., the Galileo sighted the steamer Umbria, apparently disabled, bearing ncrthwest, and bore down close to her. She exhibited three red lights, showing she was unmanageable but not requiring assistance. Though a heavy sea was running, ebe lay quite easy and comfortable, with the wind blowing a stiff siorthwest gale. It is Dupt,osi d her machinery was disabled, and'the was lyir.g to. making repairs. Next morn ing the Galileo passed two oaßt bound steamers which would render any as sistance if seeded. Captain Jonea eaya there need be no alarm in regard to her safety. Ljndon, Dec. 29.-Aa the hours lengthen with no tidings of the overdue steamer Umbria, anxiety increases. The relatives and friends of those on board continually visit the offices of the company or ask by telegraph for intelli gence. While the companv'a agents profess to have no fear as to the safety of the vessel, the un derwriters look upon her as an extra hazardous risk, and reinsurance rates have risen since yesterday from 12 guineas premium (a very high rate) to 20 guineas. A broken Bhaft would ac count for her delay, hot vessel men fear she may have struck a floating wreck, a number of which have been repoited, or her sail area, though sufficient to work her, is rather limited, and she would make slow headway by wind. * Halifax, N. S., Dec. 29.-—A rumor is in circulation here tonight that the dis abled steamer Umbria had reached Har rington in a sinking condition, but in quiry shows that this story is fa!*e. Tbe ship has not been sighteii anywhere off the Nova Scotia coast, every part of which has been communicated with. MEXICAN ADVICES. General Garcla's Defeat Not Credited. Colonel Hernandez's Cane. Chy op Mexico, Dec. 29. The report that 300 Mexican troopß under General Garcia had been routed by 250 revolu tionists at Las Dimas, weßt of Guerrero, is believed to be without foundation. Garcia telegraphed the government yes terday, but said nothing about the re ported engagement. The appeal ot Colonel Hernendez ia being heard in tbe aupitme court. Counsel for the defendant argues that Garza, with whom Hernandez was con nected, was not a revolutionist but a common bandit. The death sentence imposed upon Hernandez is likely to be confirmed by the court, but a pardon is expected afterward. A STRANGE MURDER. An Arkansas Boy's Mother Compels Him to Shout Her.
