Scott, editor of The Register, at the public reception tendered him last night by the lola Ministerial Union and the Current Topics Club. Ry 7:30 all the seats were taken and all the standing room occupied and it was evident that the church would be entirely inadequate to hold the audiente but it was then too late to make other arrangements and the reception and address were ; given as originally planned. Aftor the assgjgbly of approximately over 1200 persons arose and sang •'America,'" Rei-. Benson M. Powell, pastor of the First Methodist church, made a short prefatory speech. He said that' it was unnecessary to introduce Mr. Scott whose life work had been a.mong' this people and after a brief tribute to the editor's service in the city, state and nati_pn, called Mr. Scott to his place in the'i^evening's program. Mr Scott w.as given an enthusiastic hand when he arose to speak and after a moment of acknowledgement launched into ti,. .story of starving Bel gfcini, a story wiich t.he people were eager to hear. The speaker's narrative covered a wide range, but a'.l its p'la.^ps, of rour.«e, r'>lated to the stricken "little sijjter of the .world." and the relief work among the starving people. He doscrilied the wonderful organization tljroush which the <;ontributions of the .-Vmerican people are distributed, and made a stron.i; appeal for continued assistance for the starving ' Rplciails, declaring that conditions could but s;row more severe as the war was prolonged. .At the conclusion of the addr-^ss, hundreds remained to greet Mr. Scott and felicitate him on his safe return from a perilous voyage.

The explosion occurred in Mine No. 3, great volumes of smoke pouring out of the opening. As it is directly connected with No, 4 it wag feared the men there had been shocked by the blast.

Jerry Bedwell and Roll Gard have goneto Kansas City for a short busi-jpf the detective, oeaa Tisit fBy the A.ssoci:ited Press) New York, Mar. 2.—An attempt to blow up St. Patricks^cathedral with a bomb today and the a'rrest of two men by detectives who had been informed for months of their activities, was followed by an announcement made at police headquarters that the arrest liad bulked an anarchistic piot to kill with bombs Andrew Cardegie, John D. Rockefeller, sr., John D. Rockefeller, jr., and other wealthy men. The anarchists were to inaugurate in New York city a reign of terror comparable only to days of the French revolution. A part of the ploc. the police assert, was for gangs of men armed with rifles and revolvers to appear simultaneously in various parts of the city to shoot and pillage. The biggeSi banks of New York were to be blowu up and wealthy men were to be slain. The wrecking o£ the cathedra! ivas to be the signal for an elaborate campaign of murder and looting. The ne.xt move was to place bombs in the homes of Andrew Carnegie, the Rock efellers and Cornelius Vanderbilt. §0 far had the plot;progressed that the manufacture of bombs had been started. With the capitalists disposed of, the anarchists planned to invade the financial district and lay their bombs in the biggest city banks. General looting was to follow. For months a central _ office detective had worked in the inner circle of the anarchists according to the police story and had kept the detective bureau advised of all plans. This detective. Frank Baldo, assisted in th ,e manufacture of the t)ombs with which the attempt was to be made today to blow up the cathedral. The detective accompanied the bomb thrower to the edifice and sat with him wlipn the bomb was thrown, lin mediately the cathedral in which 800 were at worship became alive with detectives whose presence was unsuspected. Baldo. sitting beside the bomb thrower placed him under arrest. Detectives in a pew behind the two men dashed into the aisle and stamped out the sputtering fuse. The congregation hardly realized 'what had happened and there was no panic. At police headquarters the bomb thrower said he was Frank Abarno, a lithographer. 24 years old. Soon after he was taken to headquarters detectives acting ' upon information given by Baldo arrested Charles Carbone, an 18 year old boy and charged him with complicity m the plot and with helping to make bombs. Stage Was Well Set. When Abarno entered the cathedral door, the bomb under his coat and Baldo at his' side. J^e walked to a stage whose every setting had been placed' by detectives. Two scrub women on their knees in the vestibule in which he passed were in reality central office detectives. The white wigged priest who met thehi at the door and took them to a seat near the front was a sergeant of police. Just behind Aberno. there entered the church quite casually, two other detectives who followed the pseudo priest and took seats at his bidding in the pew behind. It was these men who saved the cathedral, from damage by beating out the fire in the fuse;^ Aberno realized the identity of his companion a moment after he had lighted the fuse from the glowing end of a cigar. The missile had hardly ieftj bis hand to lie for a moment on the carpet at the fopt of the altar wh <ln Baldo pinioned Abarno's arms behind him. told him ae was under arrest and started to leave the church. Abarno permitted himself to be handcuffed to his captor without resistance and walked meekly, down the liisle with other detectives sur- rountling him. , The bomb hurled at the altar was made with a plaster of Paris body and filled with scrap iron. Inspector Agen said it was the deadliest he had ever seen. Most of the scrap iron was round knobs which had. been rent from the iron fences in fronAJ of the houses of Ne .w York City 's best residences. ' According to _the police the plot was centralized in iher gang of anarchists known as Bresci so named because of the admiration which its members express for G. Aetano Bresci, the man who killed JTCing Humbert in Italy in 1900. At the tim.e of lAig assassination it was reported that a group of anarchists in New York and Patterson, N. J., shared in the plot. An unusual developifaent in the ease on which CommiBsioner Woods said he did not care to comment was the detention at police headquarters of Frank Baldo, the detective through whom headquarters had learned of the gang's alleged activities. He was placed under arrest merely as a technicality. Baldo is the assumed name of the detective. Hla real same Mr. Woods aaid I* Emello Poicnanl. .\;r. Cil.Tdtf—Wtiv. what 's the tfouble, Mr. Blue?
