LONDON BOMB OUTRAGE.
A SquuJ of Detectives from Scotland
Yard Investigate the -Mysterious Explosion-Many
By the United Press.
London, Nov. 5. A spuad of detec
tives from Scotland Yard Is Investigat
ing the bomb explosion which occurred
at about midnight lust night In front
of the house of Reginald Brett, son of
the lute Lord Esher, in Tllney street,
Park lane, two doors from the house of
Sir Henry Hawkins, one of the Justices
of the queen's bench division of the
high court of Justice, who has sentenced
a number of anarchists. The police
found the remains of the bomb, which
was mude of iron piping one-half an
inch thick and three inches Hi circum
ference, the ends being closed with lead.
Suspicion rests on a man who alighted
in the vicinity of the house from a cub
which had conveyed, him there from the
Savoy hotel Just before the explosion.
The suspected person is not yet in cut
tody, but his arrest Is expected soon.
Colonel Sir Kdward Bradford, the chief
Comnilssloner of police, is directing the
Inquiry. . . '
The whole neighborhood sedmcd to be
in possession of uniformed police and
detectives who kept back the crowds
who had flocked to the spot. Some of the
residents of the locality were so
Alarmed by the explosion that they fled
from their houses, and their houses
have been under police guard since lust
Among the theories which the police
are Investigating Is tho theory that the
explosion was the work 'of some person
who sought revenge for some decision
rendered by the late Lord Usher, when
master of the rolls, in which case the
miscreant must be sought for among
the many cranks who huvxe appeared
from time to time In the Rolls court.
Another theory is that the outrage wus
the result of the recently annnouncud
determination of the Irish Physical
Force party to begin an active dyna
mite campaign, and that the explosion
was Intended as some sort of a notice
or warning to the home secretary.
