LONDON, May 7. An attempt to
wreck the ancient St Paul's cathedral by
a bomb early today li attributed to the
militant suffragettes. Th venter who
conducts sightseers through thu mas
slve edifice was making his rounds at
about 8 o'clock this morning when he
heard a tickling sound near the high
altar. Upon Investigation he found hid
den a heavy parcel done up In brown
paper. Ho Immediately placed i In
water and handed It over to the police,
who found a suffragette newspaper
wrapped up with the bomb.
This attempt and tho placing of two
other bombs In other parts of the city
this morning made It appear that the
militant suffragettes had entered anew
on their havoc-working campaign fol
lowing the defeat Of tho woman suffrage
bill In the House of Commons last night.
Shortly after the discovery at tho ca
thedral tho police found a similar bomb
like package on the steps of a news
paper office In Fleet street nnd a tin
canister belloved to contain explosives,
was picked up on the steps of a whole
sale drug establishment near St. Paul's.
The general puhllo Is admitted to the
choir of St. raid's between 11 o'clock In
the morning and 3:30 In tho ofternoon.
The cathedral was closed at 6 o'clock
last evening and It appears certain that
the bomb was deposited before that hour.
It was found beneath a chair beside the
bishop's throne at the head of the choir.
The dean conducted evensong near the
bishop's throno lost evening, but neither
ho nor the verger then noticed tho pack
age or heard the ticking. Several parts
of the cathedral usually opened to tho
public were closed today.
Arson Sciunil II nay.
Buffragette "arson squads" were also
busy early this morning. They burned
down a pavilion on the cricket field at
Bishop's park, Fulham. In the west end
of London, and also set fire to an unoc

"Small but fiendishly powerful" Is the
police officers' description of tho bomb

cathedral this morning. When the ma

night, but a derangement of clockworks
retarded Us explosion. Apparently only
this accident prevented untold damage
to tho cathedral. A number of brass

DKFEAT OF SUFFRAGE LAW

LONDON, May 7. The defeat of tho
woman suffrage bill q ,ths House of
Commons last .night Is generally attrlb

women themselves tho militant ones.
whoso wild, law-breaking tactics alienated
tho sympathy of suffrage supporters.
The paper says that the suffragists'
actions lay heavy on the debates In the
"There is not tho slightest doubt that
the militants have defeated their own
objects," tho paper continues. 'The
change in the political barometer cannot
be mistaken. For some years past bills

TO HIT SALOONS BODY BLOW
(Continued from Fago One.)
wthln two miles of any state educational
Tho first of the propositions is designed
to catch tho bootlegger. The second is
designed to reduce the number of sa
loons In the smaller towns.
The third and last preposition Is the
one that would striko Omaha and Lin
coln saloons the hardest. A circle with
a radius of two miles drawn around the
doaf institute at Forty-second and BouIe
vard in Omaha, and another similar circle
around the state medical school at Forty-
second street and Dewey avenue, would
encloao two overlapping areas, Including
fifty-four saloons In Omaha and six in
Benson. One of there circles would run
tangent to Sixteenth street at th'e post
oftlco and would eliminate all saloons di
rectly west, southwest and northwest of
that place. It would just cut through the
edge of the largest cluster of saloons in
Omaha, which runs from east of the
postotflce toward the river.
Where It Would lilt Them.
The proposition placing the number of
saloons on a population basis would throw
out some thirty saloons of the 243 in'
Omaha, and the measure removing them
two miles from a state educational In
stitution would throw out some forty
three more. Thirteen of these, under the
apportionment to population scheme,
might procure a license and operate In
another portion of the city, but the other
thirty could not.
Lincoln, with the University of Ne
braska located In the heart of the city,
would lose all of Its twenty-five saloons
under the scheme to have all removed
two miles from a state educational Insti
tution. The leaguers arc tickling themselves
with the Idea that this will throw Lincoln
into a dilemma on the campus removal
matter. The proposition for the removal
of the campus will be submitted to the
people at the election at the same time
that the proposition for removing the sa
loons two miles from state educational
Institutions will be submitted.
As to other towns In the state, the
measure will affect Kearney, Chadron.
Geneva, Nebraska City and Beatrice, as
all have state educational Institutions.
The circle two miles around the state
normal at Kearney would cover the city
and dispose of all of the eight saloons
there. The similar circle around the our-

mal at Chadron would cover tho town
and kill the full quota of fivo saloons
there. The circle around tho Girls' In
dustrial school at Geneva would cover
that town and the three saloons there
would have to go. The circle around the
school for tho blind at Nebraska City
would Include most of the city and settle
the fate of at least five saloons there.

Few Votes Cast.
Although the campaign was at fever
heat for weeks before election the voters
manifested but little excitement at the
polls yesterday, and no unusual interest
was taken in tho results. Thu vote yes
terday was comparatively light compared
with the registration and xest In which
the campaign was conducted by the can
didates. barly returns favored Koutsky for the
head of tho tlckota, and he maintained
a good lead over Hoctor until the Second

First of tho Seventh. Glllln's district, was

put aside all possibilities of the repub
lican candidate's election.
With the exceptions of city clerk and
the fire and police commissioners, every
qther office was a battle to tho end
among the candidates. At times it would
look like the republicans were ahead and
then one precinct would put the demo
crats to tho front. It was back up and
down for the candidates until the last
precinct was added In on the totals.
Koutsky's defeat was due largely to
the strong democratic fire and police
board combination, which favored Hoctor
with a large number of votes that would
otherwise have been given to the repub
The election was marked by little un
derhand methods. Patrolmen were de
tailed to each polling place, but It was
the quietest the police have had for

WASHINGTON, May 7. After a con
ference with President Wilson today.
Postmaster General Burleson announced
that an executive order would be Issued
requiring that all fourth class postmas
ters now In office, or candidates for
prospective appointments should be sub
jected to a competitive examination td
determine tholr fitness for the office.
The postmaster general issued a state
ment explaining tho purpose of the new
executive order declaring that President
Taft's action In putting the fourth class
postmasters in tho classified service was
not sufficient and that the mere placing
of "a great horde of persons" In the
classified service was not in conformity
with the spirit of the civil service, as
there were not tests to detormlne the
merits of the applicant. Tho new order,
which substantially amends the Taft ex
ecutive order, retains In the classified
service all fourth class postmasters, but
specifically requires a competitive exam
ination and a selection by postotflco in
spectors from among the first throe elig
ible applicants. The order places the ago
limit for appointees at 65 years.
Mr. Burleson. In his discussion, of the
situation, indicates that the ' Wilson ad
ministration' wishes to take the -fourth
class postmasters out of politics, but
points out that democrats, as well as
republicans, will have an opportunity un
