LINCOLN. Nov. & The discovery t
et a small blase in the tnanel leading "

capitol building has caused, several of-
ftcials. to believe that a deliberate at-l
tembt was made to destroy the latter j
structure. ine names -were ranuaea
to .the " asbestos" covering of a large
sseaai pipe running through the tun
nel. - Outside ot the asbestos is a cov
ering, of four layers" of heavy paper."!;
This paper was burned away .m two :
spots, each about a foot in. diaaieter.
Below, the pipe was" found a pile of
excelsior and." several burnt matches.
The place' where, the fire" was found is
about forty feet -"from .the capitol
building- and with a good draft, the
flames would have spread the entire
distance- within a few minutes-
Secretary of Stale Marsh sad. Attorney-
General Prout investigated the
discovery, but-arrived at no definite I
conclusion. It was reasoned. that i? an.
attempt was planned to -destroy, the
building the fire would have been
started nearer.the building or in the
woodwork. The pipe is hot enough ta
scorch dry paper, but" it is said by en
gineers that it could not "produce any
effect on the asbestos, which is be-
