LONDON , Murch 15. A terrific gas
explosion occurred In the local govern
ment board offijos at Westminster
at 0 o'o'ock to-night , destroying much
property. Thja report was hoard in
the house ot commons and caused
alarm. The conousaioa was so great
that it shook the side galleries and re
porters' gallery. Being the dinner
hour bnt few members of the house
were in the hall. The Duke of Edin-
burg was in the poors' gallery and
seamed alarmed. The speaker rang
his bell and naked the cauao of the
alarm. No one was injured. The
wildest rumors are afloat. The report
resembled the discharge of an eighty-
ton gun.
LATER. It is now believed the ex
plosion was caused by dynamite , and
was the deliberate attempt to blow up
the government officers. The explo
sion being the subject of considera
tion in the commons , Haroourt , homo
secretary , said ho did not think it
right to say anything about the mat
ter until cffialol Inquiry had boon
mado. Ho had hoard an attempt was
made to blow up The Timoa office ,
but no injury was done.
The explosion was hoard a distance
of two or throe miles. Yesterday
evening a canister containing explo
sive material was found behind The
Times cflise , with it is rumored , a
lighted fnao attached and the police
are making investigations. Officials
f hink the explosion was closed by gun
powder or dynamite. Officsrs cf the
gaa company doclnrj they can find no
evidence that it woo caused by gas.

houses of parliament was 'doubled.
The government offices and residences
oE ministers are strongly guarded.
The Times attaches llttlo importance
to the explosion which occurred at
its office. The canister contained
only a small quantity of powder.
The Dally News says : "It is of
course obvlons that the explosion waa
the result of a premeditated design.
We are confronted with the fact that
there are in London persons bold
enough to act on the wildest coun
sels of O'DonovauRossa. It is impossi
ble not to connect the author of this
outrage with certain phases of the
Irish crlmo and the assassin pros a of
America. "
The Times says : The Fenian an
swer to Gladstone's speech on the land
act was not long delayed. Wo are in
the preaonca of the first , attempt o the
dynamite party to carry out the policy
of bringing the war into the heart of
London. The oxploalon at our office
occurred at 7:45 : Wednesday evening ,
bnt the falling of the canister prevent
ed any serious damage. There is
roanon to believe two attempts of this
kind were made b/ the same miscre
The explosion was undoubtedly the
work of FeuhuB. The adjaoant streets
are filled with myriads of fragments
of glass , and heavy platoglasa u lyini ;

weighing 200 pounds wai projected
against King street station , mailing &

mado. The full extent of the aamago
cannot bo estimated till daylight.
Five hundred constables are guarding
the scone ,
The building has the appearance of
having been bombarded. A deep
trench ton feet by throe was made in
- one room , the floor of which had boon
literally ploughed. Two children ,
sleeping in a honso in the corner of
King street , wore thrown from their
bed oy the force of the explosion and
their faces badly cut. They wore

udgo of this diatrlot would bsgih to

ottlcd yottorday by the action in
ho diatrlot court.
Upon the convening of court Judge
tfovillo naked Judge Wakoly to come
p and alt with him behind the bar ,
nd then introduced him to the mom-
era present as their new judge , and
asked him if ho would say anything to
ho couat. Judge Wakoloy and
aid that while it was not cuttomary
0 make a opecoh on such occasions ,
10 would addroai a few words to those
. resent , and thereupon naid :
Gentlemen ol the Vnr :
Having taken the oath of cfllco
nndor my recent appointment as one
if the judges of this court , I dm now
cady to enter upon official duty.
With jieriniaslon of the judge pro
ildlng I desire to odd to this state
mout a few words. I know that it Is
not usual poiaibly it may be uupre
lodonted for an incumbent tospeak
rom the bench of the circumstances
nnder which ho has boon called to it.
1 choose , however , to-dty , to follow
the ( strong promptings of my heart ,
oven though it shall violate naags ,
and thus publicly express to the mom-
bora of this bar , collectively and tndl-
ridually , my grateful recognition of
heir united and most generous action
which was potential in calling mo to
his judgment seat.
Fittoon years of personal and Hru
osslonal association , and of charp con
tention , at many times , in the strug
gles of the law enables thorn to know
mo well. That they were willing , nn
sought , in reliance on my fidelity , dla
crotiou and Impartiality to commit to
my judicial keeping end determination
tlm weighty interesto and rights rep
resented by them waa a testimonial
which deeply moved mo , and which ]
regard as among the most valued o :
my profoBsional life. Yet even this
brings to mo also Us burden. I can
eay'to you with great sincerity that
wbat.moet oppresses moat this MO

ifi * 1 _ | _ _ /T1 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ L.t 1 11 _ _ \i. ilT _ _
shall ozpcct moro of ma than thle , I
shall bo compelled to disappoint yoa.
If I shall bo able to meat all your just
expectations and reasonable require
ment * } It will bo an atnplo reward. If
I shall fall to do no I shall have roaion
to feel that the fleeting honora of this
place have boon secured at too great a
COBt.We all reoogniza the duo relations
of the bench and the bar. The court
haa Its solemn daticn , and ito just and
stern prorogattvea. These duties must
bo performed ; thooo prerogatives inuat
bo maintained , or the court falls to
keep Itself on the high level of ita
ordained and constitutional functions.
The bar has Its rights , its duties , its
privileges. I have been of it , and
with it too long , 1 trust , to overlook
this. I hope I shall not remain on the
bench long enough to forget it. Yet
when thceo rights havobaon accorded ,
and thcso privileges enjoyed , In the
full mciuiiro of right and approved
custom , and the question goua to the
court for judgment , such judgment ,
given In duty and in coussiunc. , deserves -
serves , and from the fair minded law
yer will command respectful acquies
cence , coat what it may to his cause
and his client. For myaolf , I can
prom'so ' yon only a faithtnl and hon-
oat endeavor to walk with judicial
rectitude in the path of the law ,
lighted by justice , load wheresoever
It may.
I am fully conccloua that no court
in independent of the aid furnished by
the learning , the research , the trained
logic , and matured thodght of the bar.
Of those aids I shall always bo most
glad to avail myself.
Finally , gentlemen , I shall be
zialouB , in co-operation with ray ju
dicial associate and yonrsolvoi , to do
my full part in the effort to reduce
this docket of nnreachod causes which
confront ] us term after term , and
bring justice somewhat nearer to the
suitors in this court. "
Following this came the calling of
the docket to find some cases which
could bo taken np by consent of both
parties at once , tbo council chamber
having been secured for Judge Wakoloy
to hold court in fcr the present. j\
very largo number of cues wore called 1 I
over before one was found that conld
ba taken up. This proved to bo the
ciao of Preston vs. Rlopen , up on
error , with Kennedy and Godwin for
the plaintiff , and Redlok and Kedlck
for the defendant , which was the first
case hoard by Jndgo Wakoly nnder
the now dispensation.
Next Monday Judge Wakely will go
to Columbus to hold a term of court
for Judge Pont. Judge Novllle holds
the Sirpy county court next wcokand
upon adjourning Saturday the court
hero Tvlll adjourn uutll a week from
next Monday , at which time both
judged will resume the trial of onuses ,
and business will bo puahcd with

CINCINNATI , March. 15. The firm
of Pflrrman & Pfau , whisky dealers ,
suspended to-day. The liabilities
amount to $825,000 ; assets , $000,000.
The rumor that a failure was likely
to occur caused a good deal of anxiety
In business circles early in the day ,
but as soon as it became known that It
waa PHrrmaun & Pfau who had boon
driven to the wall , a sense of relief
was experienced , and no bad results
are likely to follow on account of the
failure. The suspension is duo to
over-production and the failure of eon-
gross to pasa the bonded whiskey ex
tension bill. Two small drafts , each
for less than $5,000 each , wont to
protest. An extension could probably
have boon secured , but-there was no
probability that tlio situation would
Smnrovo. There la evidently llttlo
chance of loss of any of iho creditors.
