Sarcasm of Mr. Henderson.
London, March 7. The police of
London in general and of the '"E" di
vision in particular, are infferieg from
snother dynamite scare, but their
previous experiences in this line have
led people to look with suspicion upon
Aceordiug to the story told by Super
intendent Richard W Btegglej of the
polios division referred to, a tin box
apposed to contain dynamite or some
other high explosive was found last
night upon one of the windowsille of
the historical Bow Street police station,
almost fronting the more famous Bow
Street police court.
The tin box is described as being two
inches deep, one inch broad, an 1 as
having a round hole in it from which
protruded portions of a burned fuse.
The discovery of the box was made
by one of the policemen attached to
the Bow street police station, and he
immediately gave the alarm. The in
spector aud snperintendent were called
and tbe box was taken to the extrem
ity of the yard of the police station,
wnere it was watered for a long time.
The discovery ef the alleged bomb was
signalled to Scotland Yard, and from
there tne news spread that au attemnt
had been made to blow up Bow street
police station by moan, of a dynamite
bomb. In fact, the startling "find"
wa soon magnifi'il into a report that
the Bow street station house had ac
tually been the scene of a dynamite
Gradually, however, the effects of
the scare passed off. and the superin
tendent of police made a careful ex
amination of the alleged dynamite
bomb. When the box was opened it
was found, it is said, to contain a cart
ridge, supposed to be loaded with some
high explosive, though the scoptics in
sist it contained ordinary gunpowder.
In any esse the box was found to be
blackened with the smoke and fire
irom the bnrned fuse, snd there is still
some doubt aa to whether an attempt
of a very weak nature was made to
cause an explosion at the Bow Street
ponce station, or wnstlier some prae
tical joker had been at work.
