A Terrible Tlot IHsriiverett. Vit.N v. Oct. 10. Tliu Vienna police have f urnished the press w Ith an account of the recentlj -discovered anarchist plot to burn Vienna. Although many details are obv iouslj suppressed, the plot is show n to hav e surpassed in extent and diabolical in genuity any djnatuite plot hitherto concoct ed. Seventeen of the conspirators have been arrested. An examination of Die prisoners shows that the plot was hatched in and directed from America and London, and was to be carried out by Viennese An archists who recentlj returned from Amer ica. The plot was clevwly organized. The conspirators were divided into several groups, one of which w as detahed to set fire to the town, another to take charge of the dynamite operations, and anothei to forge the necessary official documents and to coin money for expenses. Parties were detailed to set fire to 1'enzing. Vnternieldling, Uet zendorf, Meldhng and Faontcn. The police got wind of the plot and watched it until it was almost mature. The) receive universal praise for their zeal and circumspection. An anarchist of Prague gave the first information concerning the conspiracj to the authorities. The plotters were mostly Czecks and Germans. Thej held secret meetings in a tavern at Penzing, where operators were instructed in the use and manufacture of bombs. The seizures in clude numerous daggers and bombs, dyna mite, fire bottles for firing buildings, print ing and forging implements, and a variety of disguises, all of the most ingenious char acter. Another plan to obtain money was by means of a forged document to frighten old ladies, at whose houses the plotters would make a domiciliary visit under pretense of searching for counterfeit money, when they would seize all the good money upon which they could lay hands. A recent fire in a private house was the result of an experi ment with a tire bottle. TH1T ANCHORIA SIGHTED. She Is OIT St, John Under Canraa wltli a Drokrn Shaft. Xew Youk, Oct 11.

THROUGH OTHER EYES. 4riintr Fnurtt 8lse Up llie Volltlcul situ. nllun in tlie Klelul) District from the Mnmlpolnt of a Itrpubllcan KiilKht of Labor. Senator A. D. Fassett, who was In Springheld a few dajs ago in the intercstof the Cincinnati Commercial OozrMc, sends the following letter concerning the political situation In this district to his paper. It will be read vvitli much Interest In this city, where Senator Fassett is known to be a Knight of Labor, and a republican of the truest blue : Nowhere else In tills state Is the political situation so complicated as It is here. When the conditions are all favorable Clark coun ty is good for two thousand republican ma joritj. and it looks to me that It will remain steadfast and roll up the usual majority for brave old General Kobinson and the repub lican state ticket. It also looks to me that the candidates forjudges on the republican ticket w ill command the full strength of the partv. The trouble begins when the name of General Robert P. Kennedy, the con gressional nominee. Is reached, and it con tinues dovv 11 to Infirmary director. I tried to find some good, substantial reasons for the opjH)sltion to Kennedy and the repub lican county ticket, and 1 believe that during the two days I remained in Spring- field I probed the matter to the bottom. The opposition Is the outgrowth of last spring's labor troubles. These troubles had their origin in a mistaken idea conceived bv Wm. N. Whiteley, of the Champion works. ot the alms and objects of the Knights of Labor. Jir. Whiteley Is one of the wealthi est, and at the same tiiuo most benevolent, citizens of Springheld. There is not one element in his character or one spot in his life to designate him the arch enemy of labor he has come to be regarded since last March. He is one of the plainest dressed men in the city. He has no aristocratic notions. He Is, in short, a very large man, and is as big-hearted and generous as he is large. Hut he Is stubborn, self-willed, somewhat rev engeful and dictatorial when iua fight He was informed that many of his employes were Knights of Labor, and his informant misrepresented that order. It was represented to him that the Knights were preparing for a. strike, and with mi other object In view than self-preservatiom, without Investigation, he forbid the em ployment of Knights of Labor. The fact is there were only arevr Knigiits In his employ when that edict went out, but the spirit of it was so un-American, so foreign to the prevailing opinions of free dom that the membership increased In a few da) s from three hundred to three thousand. There are now ten assemblies in the city, and the member-hip Is thirtj-three hun dred. A better class of w orklngmen never assisted in the upbuilding of a city. A more determined set of men never stood up together as those Springfield Knights, and the issue is squarely joined. To still runner complicate matters, Mr. Whiteley. angry at the press of the city. which, without an exception, criticised his course, started a paper of his own a little one, for a cent It Is a bright, sparkling, newsy little lreebooter on the sea of Springfield journalism, and were It not for the bitter, revengeful spirit breathed into Its nostrils during its spirit of incubation, it might be a valuable acquisition to the city. As it is Its a mission seems to be to abuse and mis represent the Knights of Labor. Kach Is sue charges them with being Socialists, Communists and Anarchists. Wherever jou go in the city the Knights have sympathizers. The newspapers, the lawjers, the bankers and business urn generally are their friends If not openly. they are covertly. The Knights are all em- PioiejuiJ&mrlated by tbejight, the y have oiThuTthlr meinterehlpnsgrowKgTl Mr. Whiteley, it is readily conceived, had become a powerful political leader. His workingmen loved him, for he would get out In the street and march and sing and sound the hen gag with them. They would march with him and sing with him and vote with him until It became widely known that Wm. N. Whiteley could dictate the politics of the city, the comity and the dis- Jtrict This was before the strike, and the Knights, knowing that he would never j leid the business point determined that he should not remain the great leader that he had been. Last spring they ran a ticket of their own again-t the republican ticket claiming it was Whiteley's, and thev elected their ticket throughout by 1.000 majority. Now Whiteley opposed the nomination of General Keifer and favored Kennedy, but Kennedy would have been, nominated had Whiteley opposed him. Before Clark county was reached he had more than enough votes to nominate him. But that fact counted for nothing. Kennedy is Whitelej's man. say the Knights, and fol low ing the line mapped out for the future they set out not to defeat Kennedy, but to run him behind his ticket in Clark county. Thej intended no fusion with democrats, but started out on their own hook. They nominated a republican protectionist and the democrats, hating Kennedy for the way he hammered democratic frauds and forger ies with his gavels last winter, 1 n o-sed this candidate, hoping to defeat "King Bob." Here Is the situation: Foraker had 'J, 000 majority last year in Clark county and 1.900 in the district outside of this county. At least 1.500 republican knights in Springfield will vote for McMillin. Whiteley will In due 300 of his non-union democratic cm ploves to vote for Kennedy, as will 200 dis satisfied democrats. In the county outside tills city are 300 dissatisfied democrats who will vote for Kennedy. That will reduce Kenned 's majority in Clark county to about GOO. Outside of this county there will be but little change between his vote and that of ForakerN a ear ago, so that General Kennedy can count safely on 2,000 majori ty in the district - General Robinson and the republican state ticket will run fully up to last fall's figures.

Lynch, the shoe dealer, whoso lav ish advertising has made his name locally and prov inciall famous, has gone east for his health, and the doors of his store in the Johnson building, opposite the First Pres b)terian church, are closed this morning. The air of ransacked solitude that pervades the place is In marked contrast to the buL ling activit that held sway from Sunda; midnight to da) light this morning. A large force of men vv ere bus) stow Ing away goods In cases, and sev eral teams were kept going back and forth to and from the depot con- veIng the packed goods to the night trains and express offices.

His faniily are still in the city, hav ing their residence on Mulberry s rett Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock Oscar T. Martin, Esq , recelv ed a telegram from James II. Laws & Co , commission dealers at Cincinnati, to attach the goods of C. XT. Lj nch for two claim held by the firm, ag gregating S400. The telegram stated that L) nch was moving out the goods of his store In Cincinnatln a way calculated to arouse suspicion. Mr. Martin at once swore out an attachment before Justice Brecken- rldge, and Constable Mohr was put in charge of the stock. The matter was final ly settled by Wm. It Horner, attorney for Lynch and his successors, who gave Mr. Martin a note for the amount It was known that James P. Goodwin, Esq., was alo on the lookout for rent due Robert Johnson, but it Is supposed this matter was settled satisfactorily. The first Intima tion that the general public had that some thing was rotten In Denmark was when a newspaper publisher sent an order Saturday evening and it was refused. The store was about stripped this morn ing, when a Gloue-Repum ic reporter vis ited it Tiiere was something less than 100,000 empty pajier boxes plied on the shelves, with which Lynch had beguiled the public Into the belief that he carried about twice the stock that he really did. B. F. Porter, who was Lynch's head clerk, was in charge of the store. He is a 11LAMW OOkINO INIIIVII1L AI, with a "thou-caust-not-say-I-did-it"' look about him that is refreshing. He made the following statement as to the case: L)nch was being pressed by creditors and did not hav e the means at hand to hold his head above water. He was in debt to Por ter for borrowed capital that the lat ter had put Into the business and for his services as clerk. Porter urged a settlement and L)nch finally gave him a note for S 1,000, covering both the loans and the other debt Lynch left for New York or tbareabouts, Wednesday, and about the same time. Porter and Mrs. Lynch bought out the stock far 33,500. Sunday, a rep resentative of W. H. II. Laws Jc Co., of Cincinnati, who were heavy creditors of the firm, came to Springfield and bought the stock and fixtures for $3,100. The goods were shipped to tlie nnn mentioned. ."""

There was weeping and gnashing of teeth from Gnashv ilie, this morning, among Lynch's creditors, prominent among which were thu newspaper hrms. As early as possible the Springfield Publishing coinpan got out an attachment on the safe, shelv ing, tables, desks, boxes, and other stuff that remained in the store room, Including tlie general air of desolation. Some goods at the American express office boxed for shipment, were also attached. Constable Mohr locked the store up. Porter and Attorney Horner both claimed that the 8AFE AM) SfCH FfXTUHhS As had belonged to the store, were now the property of W. H. II. Laws & Co., of Cin cinnati, and could not be attached. It re mains to be seen, howev er. Lynch had three stores one In Cincin nati, one in Zmesville and one In Spring field. In a recent commercial report he returned his stock at 326,000. There are heavy eastern creditors. ROBERT B. MANTEtL, TheGleat Emotional Actor, to Appear in "Tangled Idles" Next Wednesday liven ing at lllack's. Robert B. Mantell, supported by the finest company in America, will appear In Keller's new American comedy-drama, of human interest to every man and woman of the nineteenth centuiy, entitled "Tangled Lives," at Black's opera house, next Wed nesday evening, Oct 13. Tlie following splendid notice appeared as a special dis patch to the New York Berahl: "Tangled Lives," presented at the Globe theater last night before a large audience, is a new play by an American author, and for that reason was of interest in itself. But added to this was the fact that Robert B. Mantell, the )oung emotional actor who has hitherto been identified w ith leading roles under the rank of star, assumed for the first time tlie one particular place of prominence in the cast to which all actors aspire, as a step toward riches and fame. The play of "Tangled Lives," so the author holds, and not without reason, may be taken as an instructiv e society drama, showing as it does tliecomplications that can arise from marriage sanctioned only by agreement of tlie parties and not by the word of a clerg) man. The plot Is good, ami the dialogue has many passages of wit and many of strength, so that the play will undoubtedly draw well. The characters are all abl) as sumed. Naturally the most attention last night wt s paid to Mr. Mantell In the role of Kajmond. His easy grace Is perfect for the part and his power of expressing re strained emotion showed itselt throughout It is a great pleasure to listen to a oung actor who can realize that extreme manifes tations of passion are not necessary to ex press the nature of an Intelligent man deep ly moved by some inward emotion, and in this projier faculty Mr. Mantell ex cels. Sale of seats for this grand entertainment Is now hi progress at C. II. Pierce & Ca's book store. Republican Mectlncs. Hon. Chauncey I.

On Saturday night as tlie excursion train was returning from Bellefontalne Will Shanahan, the 18-) ear-old son of Patrick Shanahau, an L B.

Young Shanahan in company with two friends named Sillier and Murphy boarded tlie train at Bellefontalne and n.lUHEI) TO THE TOP Of one of the passenger coaches. The boys remained there until the train was several miles from Bellefontalne on Its -way to Springfield, when they let themselves down to the plat form of the car, Murphy getting down first. Miller second 'and Shanahan last Both Miller and Murphy Insist that Shanahan readied the platform safely. Thelrdescent from the top of tlie car occurred at West Liberty. Miller and Murphy entered the car, and supposed that they were followed by Shanahan, but when they turned to look for him he vvai gone. They looked out on the platform, Sut he was not there. Little was said abouf the matter until the train ar rived in Springfield. Soon after tnldnight Mr. Shanahan. the )oung man's father, received a telegram from West Liierty, stating that his son was fatal!) injured, and requesting him to come there Immed ately. He left soon after ward, and arr ed at his son's bedside only a short time b sfore he died, his death occur ring at 4 o'clo ksyesterday morning.

THE 8TOE-TIII!OWIMl TIIEOKV seems to receive the most general credence, but who threw the missile, nobody knows. The entire case Is shrouded In in)stery, which may be cleared away soon.

Yesterday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock the remains of the dead boy were brought to this city and taken to his home.

Carson, of Plqna, being present was called upon to made a speech, and at length related his ob servation of tlie practical workings of local ODtlon In Georgia, where he visited this this summer. Before the opening of the afternoon ses sion Rev. Elliot, one of the local pastors of Troy, was called upon to pray. Before doiug so, be said that he dtsired to relieve his mind of one thing, and it was this: One of the local papers had changed that this move ment was started in the interest of the democratic party, and to the detriment of the republicans. He said that he wished to denounce that as untrue, and if there had been the slightest suspicion that the meet ing was In the Interest of any political party, he would have nothing to do with it It is purely a gospel meeting, he said, and strict ly non-partisan. Democrats, on the other hand hold that the meeting is nothing more than a scheme on the part of the republicans to draw votes from the democrats. The meetings have not been v ery well attended and hav e prac tically been a failure. Last night addresses were made by Rev. It II. Rust of Springfield; Rev. W. E. Moore, of Columbus, and by Rev.

Why the Westerns Were Late. In an account of the false alarm of fire Saturday night, which appeared in Sun da)' Gloug-Rki'UIIuc, mention was cas ually made of the fact that the Westerns were a little later than common, the fact be-' ing all the more noticeable in contrast with their usual promptness. Lest an injustice should be done the boys In the mind of the public, it is only fair t state that the cause of the Westerns' delay was a "green" horse which they are just breaking in. This is the hrst alarm at night that he has attend ed, and tlie sight of the firemen sliding down the pole and other strange things ter rified the animal to such an extent that he lost his head completely, and reared and plunged all ov er the house. Fireman Tom Norton was thrown headlong in the mud In front of the house and narrowly escaped being run over. It was tlie new horse that caused the delay, and no fault of the boys. The announcement Is made vv ith pleasure. He Was a bpringtlelder. A Zanesville dispatch sa)s that Jack Mc Donald, a Springfield tramp, who was re leased from the workhouse a few days ago, after serving a term for robbing a fellow- tramp, was run in last night by Officers Wendell and Listen.

He had ev Idently started the fire and hearing the officers approaching, scat tered the embers and pretended to be asleep. The ma) or, gave him sixty days this morn ing. -ffsra'TTi NEW E DS THIS DAY: Vaw FnvlUh Pheek ('leaking. Xoreltles In Fane Braids for Trta- mlnir Cloaks and DresM, laeiaauw some Tery norel stjlw.
