Because Prea Ident Itushton refused to loan him $5. 00 on aotne picture ! the reaaon Robert Steele, a former druit salesman of Garner, la., threw a bomb In the Fourth Street National bank, blowing himself and Cashier Mclear to pieces, horribly mangling William Cmm. the negro messenger, ana wounuing auoui twenty other persons, some seriously. The remains of MeLear were gathered up with a shovel. He and Steele dis appeared In fragments. ineir iiesn is hurled tnrougn tee iron grating of the windows behind the cashiers desk, and squeezed through the bars like curda through a sieve. Crumu. his legs broken, fell In a mass of splintered wood 10 feet away. The whole building seemed to rocs, desks and partitions flew Into frag ments, men and women wcr burled down like nine pins. Down came a rain of glass from the (rest dome or me building. Iron bars bent under the force and greenbacka fluttered every where Use anow. Elevator men ran their cara to the first floor and fled. Money was scattered everywhere. The body of Steele was Indescribably mangled. His legs were In one part of the room, his arms In another, his body and fragments of bis head were on the side and some out la Otinna street. With the finding Sunday of the per gonal effveta of the man who threw the bomb In the Fourth Street National bank on Saturday, killing Cashier W. Z. M Lear and hlmaelf. there Is little doubt left In tho minds of the police Pfflrlals that he was Itobert Steele of Garner. la. The bomb thrower was found to have slept Friday night at the Urunt houe. a hostelry on the out skirts if the Tenderloin, frequented mostly by rcspectlble working people., The man registered as J. 1L Steele of New York. IK arrived at the hotel about 7 o'clock Friday nlht and en gaged a 60-cent room. He carried a grip, mhich he refused to allow the porter to carry to his room. Wh'-n detectives searched his room Sunday they found several yards of slow luse, a number of detonating taps, a revolver, box of cartridges In the grip, together with a number of tools aad some clotting. There was a suit bearing the tsg of a Chicago tlothlr.g house and a pair of overalls marked with the name of a Lynchburg, Va , merchant. There w as also a way bill for a box shipped over the South ern railway. It Is supposed that none of those hurt by the explosion will die. J. W. Crump, the negro messenger In the bank, and bodyguard of President Richard H. Rustoo of the Institution, who Is the most seriously laj-jred. was Sunday operated on. His condition was such a few hours after the explo sion that he was reported dead, but rallied, and the hyslclans operated In an effort to save his eyesight, though bis eyes may never regain tlelr normal condition. , . - City of Panama Safe.
