AN ARTIST PLOT
New York, March 8
A widespread anarchistic plot, which bad for its object the kilting of Andrew Carnegie, Kockfeller (father and son), Cornelius VanderbiH and other of the wealthiest men in tbe States, has been nipped in the bud by the arrest of two men when they were in tbe act of projecting a lighted bomb towards the high altar in St. Patrick's Cathedral Tbe blowing of the cathedral, it is said, was to have been tbe signal for inaugurating a reign of terror comparable to the French revolution. Gangs, with rifles and revolvers, were to appear simultaneously in various parts of the town, They were to invade the financial districts and lay bombs under the biggest banks. A general looting was to follow in the confusion and panic which it was expected to create, Tbe Anarchists' plans became known to detectives, who worked for months among the plotters in order to get thoroughly into touch with the designs and ramilicntioDß of the plot, with a view to its frustration
