Edgar was treated to a sensation the other day. in which a woman, a man from Fairfield and a gun took promi nent parts. The woman oecupiesrooms over a saloon and the man, whose name is Enwald, went to her room and at tempted to force an entrance The woman shot him in the left breast with a 32-caliber revolver.

PRESIDENT CARNOT MURDER- | ED BY AN ANARCHIST. STABBED TO DEATH IK HIS CARRIAGE. 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 THE 'MURDERED®*RESIDENT, SADI CARNOT, 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 CRIME DONE IN A MOMENT. 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 BATTLE FOB REVENGE. 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. LAST HOURS FULL OF PAIN. 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. EXCITEMENT JN THE THEATER. 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. VENGEANCE ON ALL ITALIANS. 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 WITH HER DEAD. 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 terly. 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 palace. THE BODY LYING IN STATE. 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 night. The prefecture itself is surrounded with troops, and a strong detachment of infantry is guarding the building in vvhieh Santo, the assassin, is con fined. THE ASSASSIN S PAST RECORD 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. SYMPATHY UNIVERSAL.

GnoVEIl Ci.eveuanu Execuu ,’e Mansion, June 25. lRltl , The news of the assassination cre ated a profound sensation here last night, and members of both houses, diplomatists and other public men discussed it as a great calamity to the world.

When the house met to-day it was generally understood it would adjourn early out of respect to the memory of President Carnot. Chaplain Hagby referred in his prayer to the calamity.

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 tucky. 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, trying.one 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 for Pale People in the Kentucky Post. This was something new, and as one more drug after so many others could not do so much harm. John prevailed upon me to try the Pink Pills. It was, I think, in the first week in May the pills arrived. I remember I was not expected to live for more than three or four days at the time. The effect of the Pills, however, was marvelous, and I could soon eat heartily, a thing I had not done for years The liver began almost instantaneously to perform its functions, and has done so ever since. Without doubt the pills saved my life and while I do not crave notoriety I cannot refuse to testify to their worth. The reporter called upon Mr. Hughes, the Louisa druggist, who informed him that Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills have been very popular since Judge Ilice used them with such benefit. He mentioned several who have found relief in their use. An analysis of Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills for Pale People shows that they contain, in a condensed form, all the elements necessary to give new life and richness to the blood and restore shat tered nerves. They are an unfailing specific for such diseases as locomotor ataxia, partial paraljsis, St. Vitus’ dance, sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism, nervous headache, the after effects of la grippe, palpitation of the heart, pale and sallow complexions, all fcrms of weakness, either in male or female, and all diseases resulting from vitiated hu mors in the blood. Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills are sold by all dealers, or will be sent post paid on receipt of price, (50 cents a box, or 6 boxes for $2.50—they are never sold in bulk or by the 100) by addressing Dr. Williams’ Medicine Co., Schenectady, N. Y. He Was Safe. “My boy,” said a very practical old gentleman, “let politics alone. Never allow yourself to be put in office.” “Yes, father, but know that the office sometimes seeks the man.” ■ “Very true. But you are safe. There isn’t one chance in sixty of its finding him if he is a resident of the District of Columbia.” Her Confidence Shaken. “It is a dreadful thing not to have confidence in one’s husband,” said Mrs. Svvifkins. "Yes,” replied the visitor. “But you surely have no trouble with yours. ” “That is all that you couid be ex pected to know about it. I was play ing poker with him the other even ing and he raised the limit on two deuces, and then got scared and called me. Now, what is to become of a woman who has trusted her fu ture to such a man?” An Kcho from the World'* Fair. The Lake Shore Route has recently gotten out a very handsome litho water color of the “Exposition Flyer,” the famous twenty hour train in ser vice between New York and Chicago during the fair. Among the many wonderful achievements of the Colum bian year this train—which was the fastest long distance train ever run_ holds a prominent place, and to any. ODe interested in the subject the pict ure is well worth framing. Ten cents in stamps or silver sent to C. K. Wil ber. Wesh Bass. Agt., Chicago, will secure one.
