CitiCAno , Nov. (5 Tlio cells of the sever
condemned annrchists in the county Jail were
scarche il to-dnj und six loaded bombs wen
found hidden n\\uy in a wooden box whicl
was cent enlcd tinder n pile of newspapers litho
the corner of Llngg's ' lull. Some tlino ng (
Sheriff Mntsoh decided to search nnd cleai
out the cells of the o\en prisoners und to
day v as set foi the examination. Woidwas
fccnt by the sheriff lo tlio fiicndti of the con
dunned saving that no admittance \\ould bi
given at the Jail and Ibis morning the until i
foicoof deputy sheilffs toportcd at the Jal
for duty. It was shently lifter 9-30 o'elocl
when Lingg and Kngol were load from the !
cells to the "consultation cage" and tin
scinch began , Engcl's tell was first cnteiei
nnd thoroughly oxploicd and the clothini
hanging illiquid the i oil searched but beioni
n few empty cigar boxes , some fiult , book :
und p.ipers , nothing was found.
Then the deputy shcnffH Liitcied Llngg'i

Helf In a corner of his tempoiaiy prison iim
wutilied them with eager eics Hovvas pult

thu searchers moved aionnd in the llttli
stoned wall uoom. Suddenly two of tin
three men insldo Jumped out into the corrl
dor w hllc thu third man hi Id at arm's lengtl
n small wooden box which ho e.nefull ) cut
ried to the Jail ollko and laid on .lailcr Foltz'

pipe each about six or seven inches ii
length. It was filled with some heavy sul
Htancu and plumed at both ends .lailc
roll ? picked up one whit b was dosed at on
end with a lound lion stopper and ono of th

oheniist for analyst's , though theic was n
doubt as no the icsult of the examinatioi
Then the senuh was continued , butbejond

Then the cells of Fischer , Pin sons , Spio'
Schwab and Pioldcn weio scinched in th
order nami'd , but no contiubind articles o
any kind weio found. It was decided , however
over , that it was best to change cells and ai
eoidiiigly finn apartments on the lowcrtlc
weio cleaned out. Number 11 , which is d
rectly in front of the cntianco of the Jail , an
between two rows of iion giatlngs , in whlc

Sheriff Mntson was seen on the subjec
during the aftei noon. Ho was very retlcen
at Hist , but llnally told the piiticulais of th
uttair. They had no reason , ho said , to mak
this search at this particular time , it bein
simply a pic-cautionary mcasuio. Suuda
was selected as a quu.t dav 'when the 03
ainlnation would muko less disturbance th.i
on a week dav."Of course In view of the di
velopmontH of thusearch , the most stringui
precautionaiy measuics will now I
taken. The piisoneis will not boallowc
to exeiciso as inucli as founcily , and tli
number of visltois will bo luitilctcd. None
ono will bo allowed toisit any of the cot
dunned In the cage , and if any inteivlow
aio planted it will bo only to near iclathc
and in the pirscnco of the Jail oftlciats. N
baskets of victuals or fiuit will bo allowed I
bo heat and no lettei s or dispati lies i ccciv e
or sent until they aio caiofullv e\imined. .

cither dcmocints und republicans that the ap

on the bench of the supreme court of the
United States would bo confirmed , and a
number of icpublican senators have stated ,
BO that It may reach thu ears of the pi esldcnt

keep htm shelved very much of thd time.
Senator Ldinunds js aheady commuted
against the continuation of an appointment
like this and he Is chaii inun of the committee
