In regard to the alleged warning from the editor' oE the Providonce Journal as to a plot to destroy the building, the commissioners stated that.this warning never reached Ot- had been communi- cated 'to the .United States district attorney.-at New. York. The'report winds up with the fel- lowing statement: Yo'ur commissioners feel very strongly that it; might be possible at a later date to obtain evidence (which :hey cannot reach at the present time) which might establish by one ques- tion whether this fire, was .incendiary or accidental, and would humbly sug- gest that this report be treated, not. as a but' as an interim report, and that the commission be left open."
