To Solve Dynamite Explosion.
New Todk, Jan. 28. The authorities
are energetically at work trying to solve
the mystery of the terrlflo explosion of
' dynamite which killed six people and
did so much damage in the vicinity of
the Grand Central Station. --.-''
District Attorney Jerome said tonight
that he had come to the ' conclusion that
fire undoubtedly caused the explosion.
Mr. Jerome has concluded from informa-
tlon received from various sources that
at the time of the explosion there was
between 125 and 200 pounds of explosive
' in the dynamite house and in the morn
ing theie bad been probably 000 pounds.
- John B. McDonald, chief contractor
of the rapid transit tunnel, declared that
dynamite would not explode by burning;
that it could be burned just like saw;

catt'ed the destructions""-" 'r '?

The Horth Carolina Representative Cross
es Swords With "Joe" Cannon.
Washington Times, 88th.
Although he seldom addresses the
House when he gets np to speak Bepre
sentstivs Charles Randolph Thomas, of
the Third North Carolina district, not
only "says thiags," bat talks to some
purpose. This was demonstrated when
the Urgent Deficiency bill was under
consideration. His colleague, Mr. Small
had offered an amendment appropria
ting $12,500 to complete the marine bio
logical station at Beaufort. N. C, and
Mr. Cannon, In charge ot the bill, was
opposed to the amendment
"Uncle Joe" made a rather sharp fight
against the appropriation, and at one
time h looked very much as though the
$18,600 would be knocked out. Audit
was at this point that Mr. Thomas "got
in his fine work." He had in the mean
tIme,.however, put in a personal plea
with his Democratic colleagues for the
young fishes to be hatched at Beaufort,
and when he addressed the House In sup
port of the amendment he received the
closest attention. He frankfy told the
members that he was not only interested
in the amendment In behalf of the cause
of science, bat personally interested be
cause the county in which the fine batch
ery is located will become a part ot his
dlstriot after the next general election,
and this was refreshing. The Govern
ment had, he said, appropriated money
for a fish hatchery at Tupelo, Miss., the
home of "Private" John . Allen, and a
lobster hatchery on the coast of Maine,
and why not complete the one already
authorized at Beaufort?
His plea for fish struck the hearts of
all trne anglers, with the result that the
amendment was carried by a margin of
four votes. It was Mr Thomas' short
talk that saved the day, and the fish In

Washikgton, Jan. 29 The Bepublt
can members or the ways sua means
committee held a prlvato conference to
night and decided to frame a bill for the
reduction of war revenue taxes before
proceeding with the subject of Cubsn
reclpiocfty. It is pretty fully under
stood that lbs majority is prepared to
favor a measure effecting very large re
ductions, amounting practically to a re
peal of the entire war taxes, and aggro
gating about $68,000,000. At th con
ference today It was the prevailing view
that cause for reducing the war taxes

GREAT DEVELOPMENT J
la Florence. The Splendid Shoring of the
Banner And Ozark las Stimulated
All Other Klnlng Enterprises,
North. Idaho Star.
J. N. Taylor, United States Mineral
Surveyor, has just coma down from
Florence and reports great activity la
the camp and that there la mora devel
opment going on at the present time
than there has ever been before In cen
"The Banner" said Mr. Taylor "la
working sixty men in getting their mine
ready to start as soon as their hundred
ton mill they are patting In Is completed
This property has developed Into a
great mine, I believe the largest free
milling gold mine la the Northwest.
They have twenty-seven feet of $14.00
ore in one drift, and twenty-three feet
of $66.00 ore In another drift. This
property was bought by a New York
syndicate composed of. Henry Clews,
Arbnckle Bros., and others a short time
sgo for two hundred thousand dollars,
and the value of the property! today Is
hard to estimate as tbey have a million
dollars worth of ore blocked out
"The Ozark mine lying north of the
Banner Is also drifting on a twenty-four
foot ledge on the 100 foot level, and
there is no question but what It will de
velop Into a great mine, as It has the
richest ore in the camp and has a greater
showing as far as developed than the
Banner. Thev expect to get the mill
now on the property started by the first
ot March and add stamps enough as
soon as the roads will permit in the
spring to make their capacity 100 tons
per day, and with those two big mines
with others that are getting ready to
start, the people ot Florence look for a
great boom in the spring. The town of
Florence is full of mining men looking
for bonds on property where the owners
are not able to do the necessary develop
ment work to put the property on a pay
log basis but as usual the prospectors'
idea since the development of the Ban
ner and Ozark is such that they are hard
to deal with in the way ot price, bat the
people looking for the property have
made liberal offers since the Banner and
Ozark started, and I am satisfied will
pick up most of the best properties be
tween now and spring."

Cargo of Explosive Wrecked.
Norfolk, Jan. 29 Fifteen hundred
cases or 75,000 pounds of dynamite are
a part of the cargo in the hold of the
Norwegian steamship Daggery that is

road iron composes the balance of the
cargo. An easterly gale Has issued me
sea Into a fury. The storm has blown
down the coast wires south of Cspe
Henry. At last reports the snip was
listing heavily to starboard, and was
being beaten unmercifully by the
waves. If the railroad Iron and dyna
mite get together an explosion of ter
rible force is looked for.

better results than the old one, as under
It all charters are granted directly by the

that a number of companies formed in
other States will obtain North Carolina
charters. Th4s month fifty-five charters
have been .granted.
Among the charters granted today was
one to the Southern Handle company of
Burlington, capital $50,000. It will
