The (“lastly Spectacle of :1 Bomb
Thrower—Additional Partic
lars of the Sicken
lng Tragedy.
NEW YORK, Dec. 5.-—ln the examination
of the mangled remains of the man found
in Russell Sage’s office there was taken
from the mangled mass of flesh and cloth
ing a seven-chamber building revolver.
This was all that could be found by which
identification could be made. What was
left of the body was laid out in an under
taker’s oifice on Greenwich street. It was
not much. The head was there, blackened,
but neither cut nor disfigured in any way.
It was cut off of the neck, and looked for
all the world like the mask of a man 35 or ,
40 years old, with a full beard that mighti
have been long, but was now burned close
to the chin and cheeks. Then there was
a leg, the right, the left foot, one hand and
that was all. The body proper was gone.
Neither chest nor abdomen was found.
Shreds of clothing were found, showing
that the man had worn trousers of blue
black plaid, a black overcoat and long
black stocking that might have started the
story that a woman’s leg was found. He
had been careful to rid himself of every
thing that might disclose his identity. His
name had been written in the bag. but he
had cuf it out with a knife. Sage made
this statement to Inspector Byrnes:
I came out of my office, having been
, sent for. and found a man with a satchel.
‘ He handed me a card bearing the name of
H. D. Wilson. He said he came from J.
D. Rockfeller, and handed me a written
letter in a sealed enveloped. It was ad
dressed tome. I found it was a demand
upon me for the payment of $1,250,000.
T )e letter stated that if the money was
not given up at once to the presenter of the
letter he would blow me, himself and the
entire ofiice up with dynamite. I read the
letter and, placing it in the envelope,
handed it back to. him and turned to go
into my private ofiice, when the explosion
Coroner Messmer went to the' Chambers
street hospital and took the ante~rnortem
statement of Frank Roberts, an employe
of Im brie & 00. He said he went to Sage’s
office to get some shares of stock. He saw
a man talking to Sage very attentively.
The man held out what seemed like a pis
tol. It glittered and he put it in his right
hand overcoat pocket. Roberts knew
nothing more until he yelled murder. He
heard the explosion, and everybody yelled
Russell Sage, jr., said that of late Mr.
Sage had received three or four threatening
letters signed James Walsh. In one 0
them the writer demanded $1,200 000.
What amount the others called for Sage
could not say. The recent troubles be
tween President Andrews, of the New York
Steam Heating Company, and the Stand
ard Gaslight Comfany. now come into
play in the case. large part of the stock
in i’spute belonged to he Widows Sfiinola
and Manheim. These women, Wals said
in his letters, he was about to marry. He
therefore demanded money to put him on
theirflnancial level. Sage paid no atten
tion‘to him. Jay Gould was also attacked
iiftiettcr's and denounced ,7 Aindgibn'slve terms.
' he writer threatened Sage’s lie but no at
tention was paid to it, as all who knew
about the letters believed him a “harm
less crank,” to use Sages’ own words.
Several years ago he attempted to kill a
man who lad asked for money to set him
up in business. On another occasion, when
W. J. Arkell was in Albany, Wilson made
a demand on him, and even attenlrFted to
assault him in his own office. 6 also
threatened the life of Goodwin Brown. one
of the state lunacy commissioners. Wilson
was arrested here about a. year ago for
threatening to kill some one.
Russell age saw the head of Wilson,the
man who threw the bomb. and identities
it as belonging to the man who came to
the office and demanded money. Inspec
tor Byrnes took the ghastlyh‘gory hea 111
a basket and together with unn, carried
it to Sage’s bedroom. The instant the mag
mate, w 10 was lying in bed, saw the coun
tenance he said: “That’s the head of the
man. '
This morning the chief clerk of Russell
Sage said that arrangements had been
made for the temporary transaction of »
tne business of Sage’s office at the office of
of Caldwell (it Bunker. Osborn had a
large force of men at Work overhauling the
great pile of rubbish and [ficking out val
uable pagers which the exp osion scattered
allover t e premises. The men who were
injured by the explosion yesterday are
mostly all doing well this morning.
But one gel-son was killed outright. He
is suppose to be H. D. Wilson, the man
who made the demand for money from
Sage and threw the bomb. Benjamin F.
Morton, a clerk in the office, who was
‘ thrown through the window, was removed
the Chambers street hospital, ,where he
died atl:3o.
The following injured were taken to the
Frank Stockton, 20 years old, clerk for
for Imbrie (it Co., brokers. He was in
Sage’s olfice at the time of the explosion.
His skully/as fractured and he wi [prob
ably die. ’
Charles W. Osborn, Russell Sage’s cash
ier, suffered a fracture.
Samuel Calhoun, who was in the build
ing at the time, received a fractured leg.
001. J. J. Slocum, brother-in-law of Sage
and his chief clerk, was badly out about the
head and face.
Washington E. Connor says he called
upon Sage this morning and found him
looking right and cheerful. He says he
will be all right again in a few days. He
said no bonds were lost. The only, loss
will be by the destruction of the oli‘ice and
furniture. Inspector Byrnes is exerting
himself to try and locate and identify the
bomb thrower. The entire detective force
of the city is put on the case.
It is now believed to be an undisputed
fact that only two people were killed, the
bomb thrower and B. F. Norton, Sage’s
private secretary. So thoroughly has Rus
sell Sage recovered from the eli'ects of yes
terday’s explosion that he has just an-l
nounced his intention of resuming business l
on Monday.

the Production of Hops.
WASHINGTON, Dec. s.——Superintendent
Porter has issueda bulletin on hop pro
duction of the United States. The rapid
manner in which the Pacific Coast states
have forged ahead in this industry is a
matter which deserves comment. The re—
port shows the production of hops for the

u on 50,212 acres of land in seven states.
The five leadiiag states are: New York,

What Is Said of Each of Them—{len
denion Has Not Withdrawn
and I's Quallfled.
"Why should not Joseph Chilberg be re
elected city treasurer by the people of
Olympia?" said a number of citizens to a
TRIBUNE reporter today. “What is there
against him. Has he not been a faithful
officer, guarding well the financial interests ‘
of the city during the year? Is he not an
old citizen here who has shown his con-‘
fidence in the city by building a fine busi-‘
ness block on Main street? Look at his
hard work in both campaigns for the loca
tion of the capital He never faltered in‘
the city’s interests and now an attempt is ‘
being made to defeat him. Why ? It is
absolutely certain that nothing can be
urged against him and we believe he will
be triumphantly re-elected by the people.”
“Is there any truth in the story that L.
F. Henderson is ineligible ‘1” asked the re
porter of one of the citizens.
“I do not know” was the reply, “but if
it is true as reported that he has not lived
inside the corporation limits continuously
for one year he is ineligible. Section 111
of the city charter says he ‘shall have re
sided in such city for one year next preced
ing the date of such election or appoint
ment.” '
Then in case Henderson withdraws there
will be but two nominees.”
“Precisely,” said the citizen. “It will be
Chilberg and Glover. ”
Hunnnnsowmnn THE FXELD.
L. F. Henderson was interviewed by a
reporter, later in the afternoon. He said
that he had resided within the city limits
one year and nearly two months and. that
there was nothing in the statement that
he intended to‘withdraw from the contest
in anybody’s favor. He had been nomi
nated fairly by the convention and would
stick to the end, and believed he
would be elected. He thinks it
would have been a better political
plan for his opponents to let such an un
truthful yarn as that remain until the day
of election. Then perhaps it would have
worked better.
A. D. Glover says his chances are im
proving and he thinks heLWill be elected on
Tuesday. He has a. large number of cin
zens working for him.

WASHINGTON, Dec. s.——The most remark
able contest, In the opinion of old and ex
perienced congressmen, for speakership of
the house of representatives, that has ta
ken place for many years reached its last
day this morning, with no material change
in the situation. An attack on Springer’s

but Springer said this morning he would
not be forced to retire by defections in his
own ranks, and that he is stillresolved to go
before the caucus and stick to the end. A
