Sax Francisco, March 15.—Charles Lux, of the firm of Miller & Lux, one of the largest cattle dealers on the Pacific coast, died at 4 o'clock this morning, in his home on the northwest corner of Jackson and Gough streets. Mr. Lux received a severe fall from a wagon, on his private estate, at Baden, Sau Mateo county, about a year ago, from the ef fects of which he had not entirely re covered. This, together with a cold contracted while attending, personally, to his out-door business on one of his ranches during the recent snow storm, brought on the fatal illness. The de ceased was born in Alsace, and was 64 years of age. He cama to this city in 1857, and opened a retail butcher-shop. Five years later he formed a partnership with Henry Miller, under the firm name Miller & Lux, cattlo dealers and whole sale butchers. The name of the firm is associated in the legal annals with what has thus far probably been the most important 1 itigatian in the history of the State. This was the great water rights suit of Miller & Lux vs. Haggin & Carr, in which the Supreme Court, iv recent elaborate deoisions, upheld the English doctrine of riparian rights, as established in California, Miller & Lux being the prevailing parties. He leaves a widow and stepson, Jesse S. Potter. In the Interest of I'r v i t.tiro it ers. San Francisco, March 15. —The Di rectors of the Fruit-Growers' Union held an executive meeting last night.

Prescott, manager of the Oregon Eailway and Navigation Company, tendered bis resig nation ten days ago to President Smith, in New York. Up to this date the res ignation has not been accepted, and it is thought that it will not be. The resig nation of Mr. Prescott is construed to mean that the lease of the Oregon Rail way and Navigation Company by the Union Pacitio is "off," for if it were otherwise it is not likely he would have desired to leave the service of the com pany. milling* Accident. Virginia City, March 15. —Thomas Martin, a miner in tbe Silver Thread mine, met with a serious and probably fatal accident this evening, by the cage falling on him. It dropped thirty feet aud could not bo removed for fully two minutes. Ie is not known what caused the falling of the cage, but many blame the engineer. Attorney Deuprey's Pccu- liar Position. OAKLAND FOR HIGH LICENSE. Apaches Out on a Horse-Stealing- Expedition in the Dragoon Mountains. Associated Press Disitches to the llekald San Francisco, March 15.—Judge Murphy rendered his decision in the matter of Attorney Deuprey's contempt of court, in refusing to answer a certain question on the «itness stand in the Goldenson case. The question was as follows: "Have you ever received any communication, letters, affidavits, names or addresses from persons purporting to be witnesses iv this case, outside of the defendant?" The Court, in a long de cision, held and directed that Deuprey should Answer the question propounded. Deuprey then took the witness-stand and answered the question. Tho Judge thereupon ordered that the order citing Deuprey to show cause ba vacated. This case is a peculiar ouo. Deuprey, In the first place, accepted a retainer as counsel for the defendant, Goldenson. He delayed the trial of the case on sev eral occasions, alleging, as a reason, his being occupied with cases in other courts. Judge Murphy finally informed him that he must either go ou with the case or withdraw from it. On his fur ther refusal to do so, Judge Murphy appointed Messrs. Cook and Campbell as counsel for the defendant. In order to better defend their client, these latter gentlemen wished to obtain all informa tion from Deuprey that had been com municated to him by theMefendaut, and cited him as a witness in the case, Deuprey refused to answor questions put to him and was held in contempt. Cook k Campbell, counsel for the de fendant, repeatedly claimed that the only object they had iv eliciting this in formation from Mr. Deuprey, aud which he refused to give, was to save, if possi ble, the defendant from the gallows. Mr. Deuprey to-day, on being cited to show cause, answered that he was in posses sion of no information respecting the dt fendent, other than that received as de fendant's confidential agent. Mr. Camp bell thought this answer an evasive one, but Jndge Murphy considered that, as Mr. Deuprey had answered thit he had no information, such as was implied in the question put to him, his reply must be accepted as satisfactory. The pecu liarities of Mr. Deuprey's position in this matter evoke considerable comment, The Oakland Election. Ban Francisco, March 15.—Full re turns in the Oakland city election con firm tho previous reports as to the suc cess of the Republican ticket. The vote for Mayor is as follows: Davis (Repub lican), 2761; Hayes (Democrat), 2009; Martin (American), 1357. The vote for the high liquor license retail, is 2693, against 2133; for high license wholesale, 2551, against 2173, The election was a victory for the Re publican ticket, which has not been equalled before for eleven years. The American party, born at the last, State election, had a complete ticket in the field at this election, but not one of its candidates was elected exespt John C. Wilson, Councilman from tho Second ward, who was the nominee of both the Republican and the American party conventions. The result shows that there was a large increase in the Amer ican party vote, and that it was more largely drawu from Democrats than from Republicans. ISA I III.Mi INDIANS, Horse-stealing Apaches Betected by Prospectors. To.tmsTONE, Ariz., March 15.—Jim Tate, who has been prospecting in the Dragoon mountains, arrived in this city last night, and reports seoing three In dians between the hours of 3 and 4 o'clock f. M. yesterday. The Indians were rapidly crossing Sulphur Spring valley, about four miles southeast of Bauer's ranch, and he mistook them for ranohers who had lost some stock, and paid no moro attention to them. About one hour after, Tate, who was in a se cluded little gulch, bearing a noise where he had three horses and a burro hobbled, looked up, and not thiny feet from him he saw three armed Indians, each of whom was mounted on au American bay horse, iv the act of lasso ing his animals. Tate and a companion attacked the hostile*, who broke and ran up a steep mountain side, leaving a rope and other objects behind in their flight. Tate thinks there may bo other Indians in the mountains who had no horses, and that these Indians are some of the few that are reported as having stolen away from tbe reservation and that they are on a horse-stealing expedi tion. Later reports confirm the above. More Indians have been seen in the same vicinity, and fears are entertained of another outbreak. The Indians were going south when seen to-day. General Miles has issued orders to the troops at Fort Lowell to hold themselves in readi ness to take the field nt a moment's no tice. The General's disposition to promptly quell an Indian outbreak is hailed with satisfaction by our settlers. Santa Barbara by Electric Light.

T., March 15.—News has reached here that a frightful collision between an express and a freight train took place on tbe Northern Pacific near Wheatland, west of Fargo, on Saturday, smashing two engines, eight cars and killing tho engineer aud fireman of the freight train, whilst others were injured. Wheatland, Dak., March 15.—A disastrous accident occurrtd ou tho Northern Pacific, about ouo and a half m.les we3tot here, at 5:20 on the morn ing of Saturday, the 12th. Tho passen ger train was running along ou time, though not at full speed, having stop ped at Wheatland and had not yet got fairly under way. Westward stretches a thirty-mile level track of prairie. The passengers, who wtro mostly asleep, wereiwkeeued byasuddeu jolt thatstop ped tbe train. Rusingout they found that heir train had run iquarely into a freight train coming east. Both en gines were totally wrecked, aiid the ireight train, running at high 3peed, was damaged, while the passenger train es caped with comparatively small injury. Eight box cars were piled up on the lo comotives, crushed and splintered and totally wrecked. The engineer, Fireman Snider and a brakeman, had been sit ting in the cab of the engine, totally forgetful of their orders to look out for the passenger traiu and utterly un conscious ot its approach. The fire man was found buried almost out of -ight by the coal in the tender and crushed against a hot steaming boiler, where he was bruised, burned and scalded to death. The engineer was still alive when rescued and lived some hours, saying with his dying breath, "I am to blame for the accident." Tho brakeman was also badly muti lated, but was still alive when sent from the scene of the wreck to the hos pital at Brainerd. It is not probable that he oan recover. Conductor Lowery of the freight train was arrested and pat in jail at Wheatland. The engineer ana tbe fireman of the passenger train jumped in time to save themselves and uo one else ou that train was injured, BOODLE OFFICIALS. A Number of Cook County Thieves Arrested for fraud.

Driscoll, bookkeeper of the Chicago Pharmaceutical Company, and one James T. Connelly were arrested to-night for conspiracy to defrnud the county. An army of detectives aud Deputy Sheriffs is tcourirg for others of the "boodlcrs" who have within a couple of years brought this county to the verge of bankruptcy. They and their friends were beside themselves with fear aud excitement all evening. Mike McDonald, Crawford and a host of others wero seen to be 'running all over tho city, hastily devising relict for their indicted friends. Cabs were dashing at brenk-neck speed from tbe Sheriff's of fice (the headquarters of tbe prosecution,) to the County Hospital, the Insane Asy lum and other places where the con spirators were wont to meet. Warden McGariglo was the first game bagged. He was at once driven to the sheriff's offico from the hospital. Mike McDorald was promptly on hand and had E. S. Dryer, a prominent banker and real estate agent, therein a moment. Dryer quickly furnished bail. Warden Varnell was at the theater when he beard that the officers were after him. Varnell coolly walked to tbe Sheriff's office and gave himself up. Hoandolh era like Mc Sarigle were bailed almost the moment they reached tho office of the Sheriff. About midnight, when the sus pects were being brought in, crowds of curious citizens gathered about the county building, but iugress was sternly barred to all but tho officers, their prisoners and those per sons about to sign releases. Ar rests are understood to be upon in dictments, returned this evening by the special grand jury, which has been in session but two or three days. TAKINt. SHAPE. The Rumors About the B. A O. Deal Becoming Tangible. New York, Maroh 15.—1t is gener ally believed on Wall street that the control of tho Baltimore and Ohio has passed into the hands of a syndicate. The story is current and is repeated by parties, who are generally accepted as good authority, that Jay Gould has ac quired a quarter interest in the syndi cate and has paid $1,400,000 In cash on an agreement. Russell Sage is also named as a member of the syndicate. According to reports tho Western Uuion takes the Baltimore and Ohio telegraph lines, Dinamoro takes tho express busi ness for tbe Adams Express Company and the Pennsylvania Railway takes the road. Details are said to have been ar ranged last night. Nothing could be learned to-night of tho result of the Sully-Sage conference to day, but it is generally believed that the floating rumors are in tbe mam oor rect, and that the lirst payment for the oontrol of the Baltimore and Ohio stock has been subscribed. Sully was repeat edly questioned in regard to the meet ing, but refused to give any information and would not even admit that ho had boen present at tbe confer, nee. The re ports affected the stock market favor ably, and city operators beli-ve that an agreemeut of tome kind has been con cluded. A Hopeless Task. Nkw York, March 15 —Rev. Justin D. Fulton, a well known Baptist clergy man, is about to abandon his present pulpit in Brooklyn, to engage in the work of converting the Catholics of this oountry. His letter of resignation will be considered by the Board of Deacons at their meeting to-morrow evening, and will be read to the congregation Sunday next. Decease of a Postmaster. Salt Lakk, March 15. —VV. C. Browe, Postmaster of this city, died this morn ing after an illness of about three weeks, caused by nicotine poisoning. Nuaier ous npplioations have been already for warded for the position. WEDNESDAY MORNING. MARCH 16. 1887. THE RAILROAD DISASTER EASTERN. Ascribed to a Bridge Faulty In material and Construction. Boston, March 15 —All night a large force of laborers was engaged in clearing np the debris of the wrecked cars at the sceno of the bridge disaster. It was slow work and but little headway was made, yet tbe men labored hard, and when the light of morning was sufficient for the continuation of the work without the necessity of artificial light, it pro gressed more rapidly. Ropes were stretched around the scene and nil per sons not actively engaged in clearing tbe wreck wero forced to keep outside the line. A large force was set to the task of taking the broken bridge apart. The baggage-car aud one of the rear cars ot the train had been completely de molished, and nil that marks the spot where Those two cars fell, at the base of the embankment, is a heap of kin dling wood. Tho wreck is a more appalling sight tbau the recent ruins at tbe White River Junction, aud thia points strongly to j the fact that the train was running at a speed of fully twenly-fivo miles an hour. The forward cars, which lie on the embank ment and in the roadway, remain iv the same position as when they fell. There were undoubtedly nine cars on the train, as tbe tops of nine are to be fouud, but the remains of the cars are in such a sate of demolition that it is impossible to discern how many there were. In consequence rumors have prevailed that there wero but ciglat cars in the train. The General Manager of the road declares that the bridge was one of the strongest on the road, despite contrary rumors. Professor Swain, of the Insti tute of Technology, who made an exam ination of the wrecked bridge, thinks that there were serious defects in some portions of the bridge, not ouly in the material, but in the manner of its con struction. THE NORTHERN PACIFIC. A Possible Ei tension of the Hoad to Portland to be Considered. New York, March 15.—At the regu lar meeting of tho Board of Directors of the Northern Pacific railroad, March 17th, a proposition will be considered to extend the road to Portland, about 214 miles, paralleling the Oregon Railway and Navigation, thereby giving the Northern Pacific railroad two western termini at Portland for the Oregon trade and another at Tacoma for through bus iness. The Northern Pacifii has the right to build a line through the Colum bia river valley, and it has a land grant of $26,000 acres per mile in Washington Teiritory.and 20,000 per mile in Oregon. This land grant includes over 500,000 acres. It is stated that a syndicate of Chicago capitalists have offered to grade tho roadbed, build the masonry and bridges and lay ties for the land grant. A motion will be made at tbe Directors' meeting that a committee be appointed with authority to confer with tbe Chi-i cago people. If this line is constructed it will not interfere with the completion ol tho Cascade division t'rrough to Ta coma, The directors will probably au thorize the construction of small roads in Idaho aud Montana, running to the mining districts, A Bit. FIRE Which 'l.ij I nuse Trouble Be tween two Races* Raleigh, X. C, March 15.—A fire broke out in Johnson's warehouse at Ox ford, at 1:30 o'clock thismjruing. There was a high wind and the flames spread rapidly in a southerly direction, jump ing Commercial avenue and burning bouses ou both sides of thesireet for some distance. Half of the business portion of the town was destroyed aud twenty three firms were burned out. The loss is about $100,000, and the insurance scarcely half that amount. Tho general belief is that the lire was the work of colored incendiaries, and great excite ment prevails. The white people think they could lay their hands on those responsible for the conflagration, and trouble is feared. FHEGXE-OU'f. The Canucks' Preparations Against the Yankee Sca-IJog. New York, March 15.—A special from Ottawa, Ont., says: Tho Fisheries department has completed the plan of compaign for the coming season, and it was submitted to the Cabinet Council last evening. After a full discussion it wns adopted. Speaking with regard to it. Sir John Mac Donald said to-day: "The protective fleet will be even more efficient than that of last year, and the Yankee smack that succeeds in tres passing within the three-mile limit, without molestation, will have to be commanded by an uncommonly old sea dog. Public Education on This Coast Washington, March 15.—1n the Education Convention, which is in progress here, City Superintendent F. S. Campbell, of Oakland, California, spoke of the public education of the Pacific Coast. He dwelt at some length on tho uight schools and their advan tages, and paid attention to tbe ueeds of ihe large class which they met. In the early days of tho settlement of the West, he said, the E ist was, as a matter of course, far ahead of tlie West in its facilities und its systems of education, but he felt to day that the West had profited by the example of the East iv reaching out for the very best educa tional facilities possible. An interesting discussion followed, led by S. Water man, of Stockton, California, and J. P. Fogg, of Eureka, Nevada. manning Sails. New York, March 15.— Secretary Daniel Manning sailed for Europe on the steamer Arizona this morning, accompa nied by his wife and daughter, Mr. Manning said that the journey was taken in the hope that the tonio of sua air would benefit him. He was feeling strong aud the cold he caught in Wash ingtou had almost entirely left him. H b old complaint has troubled him for six months. C. N. Jordan sailed on the same steamer. They Want l air Judges. Lodisville, March 15.—At a meeting here to-day, of tho committee appointed by the American Turf Congress, which assembled at Cincinnati recently, it was only resolved that it was the unanimous souse of the committee that each clnb in the Congress should, in the interest of breeders, of owners and of fair racing, provide a regular set of impartial and skilled judges to aot throughout eaoa | meeting. • . Location of the New Smallpox Hospital. FOREIGN. Editor Herald—ln your report of the meeting of the City Council, held yesterday, published in this morning's Daily Herald, we are informed that there is to be no change in the location of the pesthoase. Mr. Goss and his brickyard and his Chinamen must be protected at the expense of a large num ber of families. Mr. Goss is reported as saying "that he had a brickyard at the mouth of the can an proposed for the pesthouse," nnd that more teams wonld have to pass the new site than the one now in use. Now we assert (and we defy contradiction by Mr. Goes or any one elst) that there is no person living or settled in said cation except the em ploye's of Mr. Goss and others manufac turing brick in the mouth of said canon, and nearly all of said employe, are Chinamen. There is no regularly trav eled road or highway through said canon. The teams referred to by Mr. Goss must be learns hauling brick from his yard, and they must of necessity travel in and out of tbe mouth of the canon and would not go near the pest house if located near the upper end of said canon. Where the pesthouse is now located there is a public road passing immediately in front; qnite a settlement of people are living above the pesthouse and these must of necessity pass very noar the same in going to and returning from their business. Their children must pass the same road going to and coming from school. Every afternoon there is a strong current of air passing down the canon by the said pesthouse into and among the houses and yards of about from forty to sixty families, not more than from 400 to 600 yards from the pesthouse; also a publio school of about ninety children. The Orphan's Home is situated in the same neighborhood. Several children in the neighborhood of the pesthouse now have the smallpox, and must have contracted the disease either from the draft of air from the pesthouse, or from the careless manner heretofore practiced in taking patients to the pesthouse. Now, Mr. Editor, we have endeavored to give Ihe facts as they exist. We are taxed to the value of our property for the support of the city, state and county, and are, in our humble opinion, entitled to some protection to our property and for the lives of our families, from those in authority. We as well as some of our neighbors have, as a matter of pre caution, sent a portion of our families away by reason of the nearness to us of the pesthouse. We shall see whether the lives and property of fifty or sixty families will be protected by the city authorities, or whether Mr. Goss, his brickyard and Chinamen shall be pro tected in our stead. Mr. Breed is quoted as saying that "the present place i i good enough." We are of tho opinion that if the mothers living in the vicinity of the pesthouse had hold of him for a few mo ments he would change his mind, and be in favor of a more isolated locality for the smallpox. J. B. Holla way. Los Angeles, March 15, 1887. War Preparations Fever ishly Prosecuted. DEATH OF A FRENCH PAINTER. British Columbia Unable to Receive Eastern Mails Owing; to Rail way Blockades. Associated Press Dispatches to the Herald New York, March 15.—The Post's London special says: The public are badly informed here of the preparations of Austria and Germany for immediate war. A correspondent just arrived from Cracow informs me that 10,000 men are engaged, night and day, in fortifying that place. Austria's preparations for war arc herculean, but late. Germany, on the other hand, is prepared to start the campaign to-morrow. Army con tracts are signed, officers have sealed marching orders and the expectation of immediate war is almost universal. Her state of readiness is perfect, with not a gaiter button wanting to the equipment of the army. Business is completely suspended. Commercial relations have been so much disturbed that opionion favors immediate release from the ten sion in Germany. Notwithstanding the rumors of the probable violation of Belgian territory the feeling is that the campaign will be conducted, as in 1870, on the Alsace-Lorraine frontier. France is not so ready for war as Germany will be. It is thoroughly understood that if the war breaks out in the west of Eu rope it would be started by Germany, for tactical and diplomatic reasons, to neutralize France in the event of an Au.stro Russian conflict. - Death of a French Painter. London, March 15.—The death is on nonnced of GußtaveOchilles Guillaumet, a French painter. He was 47 years of age. Victoria Without Eastern malls. Victoria, B. C, March 15.—N0 East ern mails have been received at Victoria since the middle of February, owing to railway blockades. Reliable authorities say that four day's mail will arrive at Port Moody Wednesday. It can not be conjectured when any more will go through. THKEE CRUISERS Upon which Work Is to be Re sumed immediately. Washington, March 15.—Secretary Whitney to-day informed Chief of Con struction Wilson that the Navy Depart ment bad been advisod by the Attorney- General that the available balance of the general appropriation, under the re spective heads of Bureau of Construction and Repairs and Bureau of Steam Engin eering can be lawfully applied and used in completing tbe hulls and machinery of the crnisers Chicago, Boßton and At lanta, provided the total expenditure shall not exceed the total estimates of tho hulls and machinery, as reported by the Naval Advisory Board. The woik on the vessels will be resumed ut once, Large Fire in Buffalo. Bcffalo, N. V., March 15.—This morning tbe large brick building of Mil ler, Grainer _ Co., opposite the Commer cial Advertiser office,was burned totally. The loss on the building is $200,000, and on the stock $150,000, with a heavy in surance. The two upper floors were oc cupied as the Masonic Hall. Their loss is $35,000; insurance, $25,000. Matters Which Claimed the At tic, li of the Police Yesterday. The case of James Ash, charged with battery for cutting Harry Chandler on tbe temple with a tumbler, was set for Wednesday, March 233, yesterday, by- Justice Austin. The examination of Major Horace 801 l upon a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, preferred by G. H. Barlow, for the assault upon General Bonton on tbe Bth instant, was set for next Tuesday by Justice Austin, yesterday. It was reported yesterday that a horse and buggy belonging to John Hanlon had been stolen from Spring street, near First, on Monday. On Monday afternoon a horse and n two-seated spring wagon was taken from Main street. The same has been in litigation for some time, and it is stated that there is a dispute between G. E. Carleton and J, C. Whissen about it. The matter will be settled in Justice Taney's Court. Roxana Morgan plead guilty to a charge of malicious mischief yesteriiay, for breaking two shells. She will be sentenced to-day. Immense Works. The majority of the people of San Bernardino hardly realiza the extent or the importance of the works in process of construction at and around the Cali fornia Southern depot in this city. No less than live great buildings are in pro cess of erection. A roundhouse with a capacity for twenty-five stalls comes first. Next, a machine shop, 90x160. Tbe third ou the list is a car shop, also 90x160. The fourth building is for a foundry, in which the companies will have nil their owu casting and fonndry work done. Touching the foundry, and really part of the same building, will be a great blacksmith-shop, for doing all the nec essary work of the company in this de partment. The dimensions of the latter building will probably be on the same scale as tbe machine shop. A vast coal bin, 2000, t feet bng, with an elevated road for the cars to run up and uuload, is another great addition to the headquartTe establishment. The roundhouse, the machine shop, the foundry, the blacksmith shop and a pattern shop, the latter a two-story building, will be built of brick, though at first it was designed to construct them in frame. It is estimated that when these shops are opened n force of fully 1500 men will be required to operate them, and as many of these are old, regular, steady employes of the company, with families, this will mean an addition of at least 3500 people to the population of San Bernardino almost immediately. No wonder the Courier has been sanguine as to the rapid development and imme diate growth of this city. We will have a population of 10,000 before we realize it. If we go on and enforce sanitary reforms we may have a population of 10,000 in this city and its close suburbs by the Ist of March, 1888.—[San Ber nardino Courier. The Lcs Angeles A. O. U. W. Build ing Association was incorporated yester day. It is a real estate concern, with a capital stock of $100,000, divided into 10,000 ten dollar shares, of which $7300 is actually subscribed.

He had been holding a claim for Mr. Cox, a few miles beyond the Peralta ranch, and was seen at tbe cabin the day before the storm. It is thought that when the storm com menced ho started to go to the liallenger ranch, where he had been invited to come iv case of danger, and that he got lost in the snowdrifts. Ho was very feeble and as be had been missed over a week up to the time the news was brought iv, the chances are he has per-1 ished. —[Santa Barbara Democrat. • Ontario. The Record gives the following rail road briefs: The track-laying on the Santa Fe ia suspended for a few days for a lack of ties; the track is now laid a little west of the Cucamonga vineyard. The ground is now nearly all cleared for the '2500 foot sidetrack on the Southern Pncitic; it will stretch away from the foot of Euclid avenue towards Pomona, till nearly out of sight. The material for the new Southern Pa cilic depot is beiug unloaded, and work will b* begun at one*. Aisuranoi s have been given that the depot will be specially well-built, and finished in or namental style. Au engiue has been put on the road lately that has a regular steamboat whis tle; Captain Graves says it is like the whistle of tbe Bobt. K.

Tbe paper adds thataa the Czir was passing along a thorough fare, on his way to attend services in commemoration of the death of his father, a bomb was thrown at him, bnt for some reason it failed to explode, and that tbe persons arrested were concerned fa the assassination plot. St. Petkrsburo, March 15.—1t ia semi-officiaKy stated that on Sunday the police were informed that an attempt might be made on the life of tbe Csar that day, it being the anniversary of the assassination of bis father.

Th» paper makes no mention of any unusual incident hav ing occurred on that day or since. London, March 15.—The Russian Embassy here refuse to day to give any informaiion respecting the trntb. or falsity of the report that an attempt on the Czar's life was made last Sunday ia St. Petersburg. A dispatch from St. Petersburg to the Daily News says: While the Czar waa returning from the reqiiem services ia tbe Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Pan], a bomb, attached to a cord, was thrown in his direction. The intention was to tighten the string, whieb was connected with tome mechan ism, and to thns explode the bomb, but before this design could be ex ecuted the criminal and a suspected accomplice were seized. It was found that they lived together in a lodging house in the suburbs of the city. The police visited this house, and discovered there a quantity or explosives and a nam ber of revolutionary pampblets. Over 200 persons have already been arrested in connection with the affair, and domiciliary visits are being made throughout the city. The German police had warned the Russian authorities that an attempt waa to be made against the Czar's life, but the lat ter failed to trace the plotters. A tele gram from Vienna confirms tbe Daily News dispatch and says that the bomb was thrown under the Czir'a carriage and that it was shaped like a book, so I that it could be carried in the hand with out exalting suspicion. A dispatch from St, Fetenbu'g to tb» Standard says that one of the six stu dents arrested in connection' with the plot carried a hollow book containing a bottle filled with dynamite and poisoned bullets. The others had parcels and bags containing bombs. The dispatch also says that it is alleged that a w man was arrested who had a bomb concealed in her muff. The Russian Embassy in London has received dispatches contirmirg the re ports of the discovery of a plot to assas sinate the Czar and the arrest of tbe ring leaders. These dispatches say that no actual attempt was made to kill tbe Czar, as tbe plot had been discovered before he left the palace. The British Government has received dispatches to the same effect from Sir R D. Morier, British Ambassador at St. Petersburg. A St. Petersburg dispatch to tbe Times says: "Ou Sunday the ronte which was to have been taken by the Czar was crowded with gayly dressed people. Before tbe imperial party left the fortress tbe police telegraphed that they had grave suspicions that violenoa would be attempted and advised Their Majesties to change their route. Accord ingly tho royal party drove by Ihe war of tbe Neva quay and by a eircuitons route, avoiding the tour. Meanwhile arrests were made at the corner of tbe Newsky Prospect and the great Mora kaia, where the plotters expeoted that the imperial party would slacken its pace, upon turning the corner. Tbe would-be assassin is of short stature. I In refuses to reply to any questiona. The Czar cried on hearing the danger which he haul escaped. He did not learn tbe particulars until he arrived at the Gatcbina Palace. Tbe persons arrested in connection with the constitutional plot indignantly deny that they were in any way conuected with the outrage, and repudiate any idea of conspiracy. Their motto, they say, is 'the people, with the Czar or against the Czar.' They havo published a lithographic periodical, composed mainly of extracts from the works of notable writers est constitutional law and political econ omy."
