Attempt Is Made to
Destroy St. Paul Ca
thedral in London
"Bomb Throwers" and
"Arson Squad" Re
new Their Activities
London, May 7. An attempt to
wreck the ancient St Paul cathedral
by a bomb early today Is attributed
to the militant Buffragottes The
verger who conducts sightseers
through the massive edifice was mak- j
ing his rounds at about 8 o'clock this
morning when he heard a ticking!
soud near me nign altar, upon in
vestigation he found hidden a heavy
parrel done up in brown paper He
lmmediatelv placed it in water and
handed It over to the police, who
found a suffragette newspaper wrap
ped up with the bomb
This attempt and the placing of
two other bombs In other parts of the
city this morning made it appear that
the militant suffragettes had entered
anew on their havoc-working cam
paign following the defeat of the wo
man suffrage bill In the house of
commons last night Shortly after the
discovery at the oathedral the police
found a similar bomb on the steps of
newspaper office on Fleet street
and a tin canister believed to contain
explosives was picked up on the
steps of a wholesale drug establish
ment near St. Pauls
Examination of the Bombs
No arrests were made following the
discoveries and it is doubtful if the
police have clews to the identity of
the bomb throwers. The various par
cels arc awaiting enmination by ex
perts The bomb from ihe cathedral was
examined at the Bridewell police sta
tion and later at the home office by
government experts
The bomb was painted black and
contained two denotators attached to
an electric batterv It was filled
with slugs of a hard black BUDBtance
resembling coal There is no doubt
the police say. that it was placed in
position by militant suffragettes or
persons in their employ.
The general public is admitted to
the choir of St Pauls between 11
o'clock in the morning and half past
three in Ihe afternoon The cathed
ra was closed entirely at C o'cloi
last evening and It appears certain
that the bomb was deposited before
that bonr it was found beneath a
chair beside the bishop's throne at
the head of the chi lr
The dean conducted evensong near
the bishop's throne last evening but
neither he nor the verger then no
ticed the package or heard the tlckinc.
Plain clothe? policemen have been on
duty In St. Pauls for several weeks
for the express purpose of preventing
militant suffrage outbreaks but they
observed nothing wrong last night
"Arson Squad" Busy.
Several parts of the cathedral, usu
ally opened to the public, were closed
Suffragette " arson squads" were al
to busy early this morning They
burned down a pavilion on the crick
et field at Bishops Park. Fulham. in
the west end of London, and also
set fire to an unoccupied house at
FInchley in the north of London Suf
fragette placards and quantities of
, chemicals were found In the vicinity
of both fires.
Another mysterious fire broke out
at a lumber yard In Lambeth today,
the fourth of this kind in London
within a few days ll was extinguish
ed before much damage had been
"Small but fiendishly powerful," is
the police officers' description of the
bomb found near the hich altar of St.
Paul's cathedral this morning. When
the machine was taken to pieces, it
was discovered that it was timed to
explode at midnight but a derange
ment of the clock work retarded the
explosion. Apparently only thi sect
H dent prevented untold damage to the
if cathedral A number of brass bci
' nails, and coarse metal slugs were
found among the contents.

Has Been Broken By
U. S.
San Francisco, May 7 The Toklo
correspondent of the Japanese New
World of this city cabled the paper
yesterday that the protest of the Jap
anese government against the alien
land law in California would be based
on the contention that by Its terms
the Jupaiiese were placed in a posi
tion inferior to that granted to clti
zeus of European nations In Califor
nia and that the spirit of the 'most
favored nation" clause of the Japan
ese treaty with the United State
was therefore violated, even though
no stipulation of the treaty specific
ally covered the point at Issue. Tho
message adds that there Is still a
strong feeling in Japan that the dif
ficulty can be solved by negotiations
l" I W( en the two governments. Baron
Sakatanl mayor of Toklo, Is quoted
as having said In an interview : "The
right of naturalization and a new
treaty wjtb the United states spec
ifically relating to land ownership
will solve the whole question." Toklo
advices to the Japanese American last
night reported that the Japanese gov
ernment hail announced that an ave
nue toward a satisfactory solution of
the California problem still remained
and argued that the people await the
