Naw Yokk, Dec. 4. At 12 :15 o'clock
this afternoon a email, shabbily dressed
man, apparently 35 years old, carrying a
brown leather hand valise, called at
Russell Sage's office on the second floor
of seventy Broadway, and asked to see
Sage. W. R. Laidlaw, Sage's clerk, told
him that Sage was busy and could not
be seen. The man persisted and con
tinued talking in a loud tone. Sage who
was in an inner office came out to see
what was the matter. He asked the
man what was . wanted. The man de
manded a jnillion dollars from Sage and
upon being refused, he said: "I de
mand a private interview with you."
Sage replied that it would be impossible
for him to see the man then, but that
he might possibly do so later in the day.
The man continued to demand ah inter
view then and there. Sage ordered him
to leave the office, on this the man
dropped the leather bag and an explo
sion which, shook the entire block in
stantly followed. Sage was thrown ac
ross the room and stunned. Ukidlow
was also thrown across the office, and
had one leg badly : lacerated. The
stranger was throw n against the partition
wall and -was by far the r most' seriously
injured of the three. .There were three
others whose names could not be ascer
tained at the moment, also injured! It
it known that one of the clerks in Sage's
office was' blown1 out through' the win
dow.' Nearly all the windows on the
east and north side of the building were
broken and the interior of the building
is badly wrecked. It is said that two at
least of the occupants of the building
are torn to pieces by the force qf the ex
plosion. Sage, in a conversation after
the explosion said he considered it a
deliberate attempt to kill himself and
destroy the building.

ANCTHF.R GONE WRONG.
He Was a Trusted Bank Clerk With Kx
travagantDeslres. -
New Orleans, Dec. 3. The detectives
have not yet succeeded in finning Rich
ard B. Rowley, the defaulting paying
teller of the Co-operative Banking Asso
ciation, who disappeared with 3500 oi
the bank's funds last Saturday evening.
The bank closed its. doors at the usual
hour, and Rowley, as was customary,
turned over to Cashier Miller the re
turns of the day. Miller, after looking
over the' account, found it correct and
went home. It has been learned that
Rowley, who was acquainted with the
combination of the safe, opened the
strong box and helped himself to the
cash, leaving behind him f.800 in silver,
wnicn was eviaentiy too neavy to carry.
When Rowley failed to appear Mondav
morning, Cashier Miller opened the safe
and discovered the defalcation. The
bank is secured against loss by the fact
that Rowley was bonded in the Ameri
can Guarantee Company of New York
for $5000. Rowley belonged to an excel
lent famtly. His father was adjutant
general of the state before the war. The
defaulter was chief of police of this city
under Mayor Bohan, and was chancellor-commander
of the Knights of Pythias
of the 6tate. - The endowment. rank' of
the order loses about $300 by hiln.

will be made public in a short tfttie.
The purpose of the syndicate is to asso
ciate or amalgamate a number of iron
businesses, and carry them on under one
management. The purchase price is
said to be $500,000. The names of
United States Senator John P. Jones, of
Nevada, General Charles C. Dodge and
J. W. Mackay were given as those most
prominent on this side of the water in
organizing the enterprise.

Heavy Gas Explosion.
Charlotte, N. C, Dec. 3. It was
learned here yesterday that J. M. Ben
son, treasurer of Bladen county, had ab
sconded with $6000 of the county's
money. Benson has for several years
held the position of treasurer of this
county, and for the past two years has
been largely engaged in the merchantile
business at Elizabeth port. His store
has been the headquarters for the al
liance of Bladen county. Several days
ago it was learned that Benson was short
in his accounts, and in consequence of
the rumors that were afloat the county
commissioners bad called a meeting for
yesterday, and Benson was to appear
before them for an investigation. The
commissioners met according to agree
ment, but found out soon after that
Benson had disappeared during the
night. It is thought by many that the
money the county will lose will be a
comparatively small sum compared to
the sum that Benson owes the farmers
of Bladen county. As he always has .
been highly respected and above sus
picion, the farmers would put whatever
money they did not need in his hands,
he paying them good interest, but seldom
paying the principal, and in this way
quite a large sum must have been in his
hands at . the time of his departure.
There seems to be little doubt that Ben
son has appropriated at least $10,000 ' of
other people's money to the exclusive,
benefit of himself. 'Much excitement
exists over his sudden disappearance,
but those most interested have not the
least idea where be has pitched his tent.
Telegrams have been sent in every direc
tion for apprehension of , the fleeing
treasurer,- but nothing has been heard of
him. ..
1 . Had Better Not Return.
New York, Dec. 3. The rumor that
John C. Eno, the ex-president of the
Second National bank, who ran away to
Canada in 1884 with, nearly $5,000,000,
was to return to this city was news to
District Attorney Nicoll, who said yes
terday that he had beard nothing
whatever about his contemplated return.
He placed no faith in the story, for it
was one, that bad frequently been circu
lated within the last four or five years.
There was one thing District 'Attorney
Nicoll would say, and that was that if
Eno did return he, the district attorney,,
would promise the fugitive alivelv time..
If Mr. Nicoll remembered rightly, the-,
evidence was mostly documentary and.
that always' lives. , .
The Judge Shed Tears.
Union, Or.,. , Dec. 3. Judge Fee, of
the circuit court, last night sentenced
Evan Carver, who was found guilty of
murder in the first degree, to be hanged,,
the execution to take place in the jail
yard on January 21, 1892. This was the
first sentence of death ever . passed by
Judge Fee, aud his honor was unable to
refrain, from tears. Carver is a young
man about twenty-one years at age.
He had nothing to say, and took the
sentence quite coolly. This is the first
instance of a criminal being sentenced
to be hanged in Union county.
A Tin-PIate Discussion.
Washington, Dec. 3. In reply to in
quiry the treasury department basin

plates rolled from imported bars or
billets should be similarly classified.

ing manufacturers to use American tin.
