Giovanni Santo, an Italian, the Slayer—
The Wretch Almost Beaten to Death
by the Populace — The Whole
World Shocked — President
Cleveland Issues a Mes
sage to Congress*
Lyons, France, June 26.—President
Carnot of France was stabbed through
the left side by Cesare Giovanni
Santo, a young Italian Anarchist, last
night while on iiis way to attend a
fete at the theater, and three hours
later was dead. The knife of the
murderer had pierced through the
upper liver and from the first there
was no hope.
The wretched assassin was terribly
beaten by the infuriate'd people who
witnessed the terrible crime, but was
saved for the guillotine by gendarmes
and soldiers.
The international silk exhibition in
this city was opened yesterday, and
President Carnot and most of the
ministers were honored guests. The
distinguished party spent some time
at the exhibition and were then ten
dered a banquet at the chamber of
commerce. A gala performance had
been arranged at the principal theater
for the evening, and the president
and his party started for the struc
ture at 9:25 o'clock, the president’s
carriage in front. The streets were
lined with enthusiastic people who
cheered repeatedly for their popular
chief magistrate. All seemed per
fectly bright and only one of all the
hosts on the streets was aware of any
cloud to mar the happiness of the
people of France.
The president’s carriage, which was
in the lead, had beeD driven slowly
down the Hue de la Republique when,
just as he was waving his right hand
and saluting with liis hat in his left,
a man pushed his way through the
cheering masses and leaped upon the
step. A long knife was in his hand.
A moment it flashed in the electric
light beams as it was raised aloft.
Then before even one ery of warning
could be uttered, it descended with
terrible force. The president fell
back on The seat of the carriage while
one hand pressed his left side.
M. Rivand, prefect of Lyons, whose
guest President Carnot was, leaped up
like a flash and and struck the cow
ardly assassin a blow full in the faee,
hurling him from the step just as he
was preparing to raise the bloody
poinard for a second blow.
The tragedy occupied but an in
stant. but that instant plunged all
France into mourning.
The people, who a moment before
had been cheering enthusiastically
for their chief magistrate, instantly
cried: “The president is assassinated.
Death to the assassin!” and pressed
closely around the wretch. Dozens
seized him and tried to tear him limb
from limb, while each moment the
angry cries gathered fresh force.
Gendarmes stationed along the
street to preserve order gathered
about the now trembling assassin and
partially checked the infuriated peo
ple. Blows were rained on hint from
all sides over the shoulders of the
officers, who received accessions .each
moment and soon were strong enough
to hold the incensed hosts in check.
While the people were battling for
revenge, the president was driven to
the prefecture and placed upon a low
iron bed between two windows. His
clothes were deeply stained with
blood. The best surgeons of the city
were summoned and, headed by Dr.
Gailleton, mayor of the city, mide a
hasty examination of the wound.
Because of the weakness of the
president, chloroform was not admin
istered. During the probing of the
wound by Dr. Cellier, M. Carnot, who
had been unconscious, rallied and ex
claimed: “How you are hurting me!”
The president was reassured by the
physicians and the examination was
continued as gently as possible. Dur
ing this he cried several times: “My
God, will this never end?” "My God,
how I am suffering.”
As soon as the examination was
completed, the physicians agreed that
there was no hope and sent for the
Archbishop of Lyons to administer
the last rites of the church.
The president remained conscious
to the last.
In the theater, toward which the
president and his party were driving,
was the must brilliant audience of
the season. All were impatiently
awaiting the arrival of the guests of
honor when Prefect Ilivaud and Depu
ty Cliaudey appeared in the front of the
president's box. Tiie whole audience
arose as if to greet the president. The
prefect cried out in a voice broken
with sobs: “The president has just
been assassinated.”
The women screamed and several
fainted while the men uttered excla
mations of fury and ran from the the
ater with cries of vengeance.
When silence was in a measure re
stored, M. Rivaud continued: “In the
Rue de la Republique a miscre
ant, under the pretext of presenting
a petition stabbed M. Carnot with a
dagger.” M. Rivaud was again inter
rupted with shouts of “Death to the
murderer, revenge, revenge.”
Waving his hands for silence, M.
Rivaud again spoke, saying: “Do not
make my mission more painful. We
left M. Carnot in the hands of the
doctors. You understand that under
these conditions our hearts are filled
with sorrow, and that the proposed
performance in the president’s honor
cannot take place.”
The audience then left the building,
many of them proceeding at once to
the prefecture, when they stood in
the streets waiting for any report that
might be vouchsafed to them from
the building, and discussing the crime
they considered liad cast disgrace
upon the fair fame of their city.
A« soon as it became known that
the assassin was an Italian, mobs
wrecked Italian cafes, and then bear
ing French flags and crying “Down
with the foreigners!” “out with
them!” hundreds of people marched
to the Rue de la Barre, in which
street the Italian consulate is situ
ated. There is no doubt the consulate
would have been sacked had it not
been for the prompt action of the
police, who stopped the crowd and
compelled its members to disperse.
After the attacks upon the Italian
cafes the disorderly element among
the crowds devoted their attention to
the Italians whom they found upon
the street. Several of them were pur
sued by the mob and barely escaped
with their lives. The police, who
were extraordinarily vigilant, had
great difficulty in rescuingthe hunted
men. The Rue de la Barre is now
barricaded at both ends and guarded
by troops. .
Mme. Carnot, accompanied by her
two sons, arrived at Lyons at ” o’clock
this morning. The widow was most
respectfully greeted by a large crowd
of people assembled about the rail
road depot. She proceeded immedi
ately to the prefecture, where the
body of the late president now re
poses in state.
When Mme. Carnot reached the pre
fecture the death chamber was cleared
of all but the family and the widow,
who had been joined by her third son,
was left alone with her dead. The
late president’s family remained for a
long time in prayer before the bier,
and then the widow was led away by
her three sons, all four weeping bit
Later a consultation between the
sons of the late president and the
authorities in charge of the body took
place. The exact nature of their de
liberations has not been made public,
but it was stated that Mme. Carnot
did not desire the body of her late
husband to be embalmed and wished
it removed immediately from Lyons
to Paris in order that it might lie in
state in the chapel of the Elysee
The apartment at the prefecture in
which the body of the late president
lies in state presents a most interest
ing appearance. The body of the mur
dered man is clad in a dress suit and
across his breast is the grand cordon
of the Legion of Honor, of which, as
chief of the state he was grand mas
ter. Around the bier are stationed a
number of the high officers of the
president's military household, who,
with several Sisters of Charity have
watched the remains throughout the
The prefecture itself is surrounded
with troops, and a strong detachment

The inquiries of the police this
afternoon resulted in showing that
Santo was born in Motta Visconti,
northwest of Pavia, in December,
1873. The prisoner is a baker by
trade and was tried in Milan in 1892
for breach of the peace, but he was
acquitted, owing to lack of sufficient
evidence against him.
Santo was known as a dangerons
anarchist and delivered anarchists
lectures of the wildest character
before going to Switzerland last year.
The police are keeping a s' -.ct
watch over Anarchists in all the cities
of France, and it is expected that sev
eral important arrests will be made.
There no longer seems to be much
doubt that the president’s assassina
tion was the result of an Anarchistic
conspiracy to avenge the deaths of
Vaillant add Emil Henri, the two re
cently executed Anarchists. Twenty
detectives have gone to Cette, depart
ment of Herfault, where Santo was
recently domiciled, in order to track
down his supposed accomplices.

The news of the assassination cre

Crippled for Six Year* With Sciatica Id
Ita Worst Form—He Expected to
Die, But Was Saved in a
Marvelous Manner.
From the Covington, Ky.. Po-t.
The Hon. John M. Rice, of Louisa,
Lawrence County, Kentucky, has for
the past two years retired from active
life as Criminal and Circuit Judge of
the Sixteenth Judicial district of Ken
He has for many years served his na
tive county and state in the legislature
at Frankfort and at Washington, and,
until his retirement, was a noted figure
in political and judicial circles. The
Judge is well known throughout the
state and possesses the best qualities
which go to make a Kentucky gentle
man honored wherever he is known.
About six years ago the bodily
troubles which finally caused hisretire
ment at a time when his mental facul
ties were in the zenith of their strength,
began their encroachment upon his
naturally strong constitution. A few
days ago a Kentucky Post reporter
called upon Judge Rice, who in the fol
lowing words related the history of the
causes that led to his retirement. “It
is just about six years since I bad an
attack of rheumatism, slight at first,
but soon developing into .Sciatic rheu
matism, which began first with acute
shooting pains in the hips, gradually
extending downward to my feet.
"My condition became so uao mat i
eventually lost all power of my legs, and
then the liver, kidneys and bladder and
in fact, my whole system became de
ranged. 1 tried the treatment of many
physicians, but receiving no lasting
benefit from them, I had recourse to
patent remedies, kind after
another until I believe there were none
1 had not sampled.
"In 1888, attended by my son John, I
went to Hot Springs, Ark. I was not
much benefitted by some months stay
there when I returned home. My liver
was actually dead, and a dull persistent
pain in its region kept me on the rack
all the time. In 1890 I was reappointed
Circuit Judge, but it was impossible for
me to give attention to my duties. In
1891, I went to the Silurian Springs,
Wakeshaw, Wis. I stayed there soma
time, but without improvement.
“Again I returned home, this time
feeling no hopes of recovery. The mus
cles of my limbs were now reduced by
atrophy to mere strings. Sciatic pains
tortured me terribly, but it was the dis
ordered condition of my liver that was,
1 felt, gradually wearing my life away.
Doctors gave me up, all kinds of rem
edies had been tried without avail, and
there was nothing more for me to do
but resign myself to fate.
“I lingered on in this condition sus
tained almost entirely by stimulants
until April, 1893. One day John saw
an account of Dr. Williams’ I’ink Pills
