JlRAtntcn. Nod. , Fab. Slj-ISpoclal Tclo-
/raintoTiin BEK. ] A sensational attempt
was made last night to burn1 the photograph
palWy of A. C. Campbell nnd but for n
peculiar and unlocked for circumstance
would liavo boon successful. That the .it-
tcthptod crlmo was premeditated and born of
innllco is unquestioned , lho roar door of
tbo building was pried open with some im
plement nnd the lira started In n small loft
used for storing picture frames. The loft is
reached by a stop ladder Kept tu the g.\llory
for that purpose nnd contains a small door ,
lho only oponing.Just Insldothls door the flro
was located but tbo Incendiary lost his cun
ning at lho last momotit nnd closed the door ,
Hhutllng of any possible draft , which nlono
lirovonlod tho'llro from extending.
Mr. Campbell visited the gallery early this
morning by appointment with a customer
nnd found the rooms full of smoko. The llro
wns still smoldering and had partly burned
through the colling.
Campbell declines to make any accusations
but many citizens are free In charging ttio
matter to ono or moro of the gang ot gnmblors
of the city.
The gnmbllng rooms that were raided re
cently nro on the inmo floor of the building
in which Mr. Campbell lives , and the parties
arrested clinrpo Campbell with being the in-
Rtigntor of their nrrest. The building it was
sought to destroy Is in the heart of the busi
ness center , and Ihero in no tolltiic thu
amount of damage thut might have resulted
had the llro flends not been felled in their
dastardly attempts. The greatest indlgna-
tlon Is expressed over the matter.

Politics does not monopolize attention.
Paris is groatlv interested In M. Zola's now
novel "La do Uaclo , " thn first Installment of
which has just boon published. I called on
the famous author today at his house , 21
Hue do Bruxolles. Ho was in his study
when I entered a room lillod with bric-a-
brac , tapesiry and furniture of every period ,
tbo faithful reflection of bis own eclectic
mind. The sludy was well supplied wilh
books. M. Zola were hU working dross. A
watch chain and a gold medallion hunt ; from
ono of his pockets. Ho was drinking lho
third of the llvo cups of tea In which no in
dulges every day. I asked him to toll the
Herald the plot of Ms new book.
"The Americans , " said ho , avoiding n di
rect answer to my question , "aro a.groat
people , but they have queer ideas about
literary property. For twenty years past
they have published my works without pay
ing mo a centime for the privilege. Not sat
isfied with this , Iboy hive oven gone lo the
loncth of putting my name on books I never
wrote. For instance a concoction called 'La
Fille oo Nairn' Is sold in the United States
as my work , though I should blush to bo
concerned in It. I fancied that the copyright
laws would make things smooth , but find I
was mistaken. On entering into negotiations
with an American publisher regarding anew
now work , I was sent nn ngroomsnt to sl n ,
declaring thut if any copies of
lho French edition of my book
wcro allowed to enter the United
Slates my Paris publisher and I would bo
prosecuted for piracy. This was really a little -
tlo too strong , so I tore up lho conlrnct and
concluded another. A second incident then
occurred. The American publishers wno
had undertaken the translation of my book
sent mo a protest , complaining that I had do-
colvfid them as to the length of the work ,
which was much longer than they fancied ,
nnd would therefore cost more tlmn , tholr
original estimate to publish. 1 sent tboso
people to the right about , too. It was , i
think , the llrst tune that my publishers had
complained of getting too much for their
money. As a rule the cry la that they get
too little. " . ' '
II N a Story of War.
Then M. X.oln , who had inada those re
marks without mttornoss , but in the tone of
a man who had been rather put out by some
petty trouble , after a abort pause wont
on : "Hut you wont to kno\V the subject of
my novel. Well 'La do Ilaolo' tells tbo story
of the war of 1870 It is divided into three
parts , each containing otyrht chapters. The
lirst deals with the ovcots which preceded
Sedan , In the second wo come to the battle
and have all the ups nnd downs of the strug
gle narrated with great minuteness. The
third nnd last part narrates the sufferings of
the French prisoners and peasantsduring
the occupation of Franco by the Germans
and bilngs us to the commune. ,
"There \orylitllo love in the story. In
the middle of tbo narrativol have introduced
two soldiers , one a peasant and the other a
lawyer. They swear friendship during the
war. Both nosort , aud the peasant kills the
lawyer. In tboso two characters I have sym
bolized rural Franco , which In the real
* , It has been said that In my book I had at
tempted to defend wur in general. This is
false. I bclluve that war is both inevitable
and abominable. My object was lo bay to
my compatriots : 'See what war means.
Look what awaits you if you rush into war.
Live well that you may bo prepared to die
well. ' I never alined at Justifying wars. It
Is monstrous. "
Wlmt Ills Xcit Will lie.
M. Zola said all this In un excited way and
it wus clear bo was wrapped up In his theory.
In answer to u further question ho said that
"La do Ilaclo" would Do the longest of his
works. It will appear In book form on June 30.
M. Zola's next nnd last work will complete
the Uougon Macquari series. It will tell
the story of u doctor in a small provincial
town and will sum up the author's views on
heredity. The novel will bo bused on the
true tola of thu gieat auvaut , Claude Ber
nard , and bis wife and daughter , who wore
once compelled to destroy some papers
of great scientific moment. When
ho has completed the Ilougon Mao-

beyond n continuation of the notion of the

which It was determined that nboinnuttco
composed of Dr. Di La Mntvr , Frances K.
