CLIorzNATt, May O;.-For saveral
days the first regiment of the Ohio
national guard' has been on duty night
and day as its armory, near the court
house; several hundred special pollee,
men have been appointed; safety or.
ganizitions have been made all over
the city. At the mayor's request
four regiments of militia have been
ordered here by the governor. The
explanation for all this preparation is
made Saturday for the first time. It is
that the police commles oncrs have
discovered that the Soclalistd, Io.tbe
number of six bundred, are oragnusr
and armed witrh Qffective r1ga; that
they control here the manufactures of
dynamite; that the one used fzu,
cage was made here, and they
now on hand for use a supply of
infernal machines. The commissi
claim that they have found the name
of the manufactures, Wm. Haines, of
Covington, Ky. This, id connection
with the rumor that Herr Most was in
Covington Saturday gives some
plaualbillity to the 'fears of the auth.
orities and accounts for the apparently
unusual precautions taken. The troops
ordered here have not yet arrived.
They will probably be quartered in
