Headline: “Bomb Discovered”

Subhead: Wonderland, Minneapolis, Saved by Manager Oliver

Minneapolis, Oct. 13.

A bomb plot to blow up the Wonderland, picture house, was uncovered when five sticks of dynamite were found in the box office.

The bomb plot, laid at the door of radicals, was discovered by Edward Oliver, manager.

Five years ago the theatre was a storm center in the labor dispute which sent four officials of the Trades and Labor Assembly to jail and resulted in a court order restraining picketing of the show house for running on a non-union basis.

The Wonderland had closed for the night and it was an accident the bomb was found by Oliver. It had been pushed through a small opening in the box-office window.
