An Italian Killed at Toulon Premier
Lyons, June 2. As the da-advanced
Monday the rioting in the city became
more widespread and at one time it ap
peared as though the mob would take
full possession of the town. In the
Guilletoire quarters the disturbances
were particularly violent. Thousands of
men and boys paraded the streets and
attacked and sacked even Italian store
they came across. Crosso's distillery,
Silveti's iron monger and Carpinelio's
grocery and wineshop were among the
large places attacked.
A policeman was seriously wounded
in the Jirotteaux quarter while defend
ing an Italian wineshop against an at
tack by a frenzied mob. The streets are
strewn with debris of every description.
The leit side of the River Rhone was the
scene of the worst acts of violence. Here
the troops were summoned to aid the po
lice and the utmost difficulty in restoring
order. Dnring Monday night a total of
800 arrests made.
Threats Against Italian.
Were it not for the presence of the
overwhelming force of troops stationed
in and about the city, there is little doubt
that tho mob would attack the palais of
justice and wreak vengeance upon the
murdeier. Mourning emblems an worn
by nearly every man, woman and child
in the city and no dwelling seems too
poor to display the emblems of grief.
During MonIa a mob, including a
number of members of the various gym
nastic societies, who had arrived in this
city to take part in the fetes, began to
gather about the cafes Casati, Mattosi
and Maderni aud about the Italian quar
ters. Another large crow 1 gathered
about the hall where the well known
Italian Harmonic club meets and most
serious disorder was apprehended.
Threats were heard on all sides against
Italians and anarchists.
Several of the Italian wine shops were
attacked and partly wrecked and the
Italian cafes mentioned were stoned and
otherwise damaged in spite of the efforts
of the police and military. The side
walks in front of the Italian cafes were
strewn with wreckage. The troops are
held in reserve under arms at their bar
racks. A company of infantry is also
held in reserve in a hoiue adjoining the
Italian consulate to be ready to support
the police in case of an attack. At the
request 6f the local authorities the Italian
consul has removed the Italian flag from
outside the consulate.
Forced to Flee For Their Live?.
Some of the more hotheaded men
proposed an attack upon the Italian
quarter and the proposition was received
with wild crie of applause, and in a
moment an enormous mob, at the head
of which was carried a French flag, was
enronte to that part of the city given
over to the Italians. Before the police
could intervene to prevent the tronble
the mob had attacked all tho shops be
longing to the foreigners aud sacked
them. Tho proprietors and their fami
lies were forced to flee tor their lives.
In the meantime another large band
marched through other streets and by
threats compelled ever Italian who kept
a cafe to close his place.
The crowds in the Rue do la Repub
liqne became threatening and refused to
disierse and it was finally necessary to
command the curaisters to charge the
Carnot! Hotly Taken to the Train.
The body of M. Carnot was taken from
the prefecture Monday evening and
placed on the train that will convey it to
Paris. After prayers for the dead had
been offered the c;tsket containg the re
mains were carried aud placed on a gun
carriage. While this was Iving done
salutes of artillery were fired, trumpets
were sounded and drums were beaten.
All civil and military honor was shown
the dead. The street m front of the pre
fecture was densely thronged as were nil
the streets leading to the railway station.
Troops and gens d" armes kept the route
clear. The procession that followed in
cluded all the civil mihtarv authorities
of Lyons and a large number of delega
tions from different cities and towns.
Every man along the line of march re
moved his hat as the body passed by him.
The people, who had heretofore stood
yeverent and mute before the nation's
martyr, when the body had passed gave
vent to their pent up excitement and
rage. Ever where could be heard cries
of: --Long live Carnot and death to hi-,
Upon the arrival of the cortege at the
station, the casket was tenderly lifted
from the gun carriage and conveyed
into a saloon carriage. The remains
were attended by the officers of M. Car
not's military household, who had ac
companied him to Lyons. In another
carriage were Mme. Carnot and her
three sons. A large crowd was assem
bled about the station and, as the train
started on its journey for Paris, many
signs of the deepest emotion were dis
played. CHAMBER OF DEPUTIES ADJOURNS.
Caslmir-Pcrler Formally Announces Presi
dent CarnotN Death.
Paris. June 2f. The chamber of
deputies was thronged to the utmost
Monday and there wa great excitement
when Premier Casiniir-Peiier entered.
Every person present arose and stood
wuile the premier read M. Dnpuy's let
ter making the formal announcement of
the death of President Cirnot and add
ing that the whole of France was stupe
fied by the abominable crime. Dupuy
also said: -'From all parts expressions
of sorrow are arriving. Franc- weeps
at the loss of the loyal servant and up
right citizen who carried with honor and
fidelity the national flag, and who
awakened in Europe feelings which show
how much is the ordeal through which
we are now passing. The republic wili
ever remember President Carnut. Our
sympathies ate with the family which
mourns his los and which, like him,
is worthy of France. The whole conntn
joins in the indignation felt at the crime.''
M. Casimir-Perier, after he had fin

ished reading, said: "The chamber of
deputies and France associate themselves
with these words. Let us bow respect
fully before the tomb which closes over
a life of devotiou to the fatherland and
to the republic. France remains ibrave
and strong tts on the day of national
mourning." The chamber of deputies
The senate was crowded Monday even
insr when the president, M. Challemel la
Conr, made an address expressive of the
senate's feeling at the death of President
"Europe,' he said, "is appreciating
the nobleness and strength of his char
acter and share's in France's grief." The
speaker then voiced the sentiment and
condolence with the family, saying: "If
any man's innate goodness should have
guarded him from hatred and fanatic
ism, it was President Carnot. The
crime has strengthened our energetic re

society and to prevent outrages upon
Funeral to Be Held Sunday.
London, June 0. A dispatch from
Paris says: The funeral of President
Carnot has been fixed for Sunday. The
remains will be laid in the Pantheon,
where Victor Hugo is buried, beside
those of Lazare Carnot, the president's
grandfather. The correspondent of the
paper adds: I am told that M. Carnot
shrank from going to Lyons. He was
long in deciding to make the journey on
account of the weariness arising froui
his ill health. When, however, his
friends began to talk of the Lyons an
archists avenging Vaillant's death, "the
president thought he was in honor bound
to go. There has leen no disorder here.
There is absolutely no feeling in Paris
against the Italians. Despite the public
grief, which is sincere, the Parisians
never had such cool heads. Daily since
Vaillant's attempt the president has re
ceived manacing letters.
Premier CrispPs Dispatch.
Rome, June 20. Premier Crispi's
official dispatch to the French govern
ment reads as follows: "Deeply afflicted
at the news of the shocking misdeed
which has iobbed Franca of her firt
magistrate and Italy of a friend, I beg to
express the feelings of horror and pain
felt by the king's government and the
whole Italian nation and my personal
grief for the illustrious man France has
just lost. He was attached to me not
only by ties of admiration, but by sin
cere friendship. Assassins have no
country and the countries to which
those criminals owe their births are the
first to repudiate them. France and
Italy can see in the assassin only an
euemv of humanitv."
Searching for Accomplices.
Lyons, June 20. The police are ac
tively engaged in searching for accom
plices of Santo. They are particularly
anxious to find a hair dresser's assistant
named Marius Violley, who is said to
have repeatedly predicted that President
Carnot would be murdered on his ar
rival here. An Italian woman who
proves to have been Violley 's mistress
and one of Violley's associates named
Roux have been arrested. Violley, him
self, however, ha9 disappeared, but the
police are hopeful they will be soon able
to find him. Recently while drunk a
friend of Violley exclaimed, "I hear the
tolling of the lells, Violley has written
an article aud we are betrayed."
An Italian Killed at Toulon.
Toulon, June 20. Here, as elsewhere
in France, the smouldering indignation
against Italians requires but a breath to
fan it into a flame. The British steamer
Richardson was being discharged by a
number of French and Italian steve
dores. One of the latter spoke insult
ingly of the dead president and several
Frenchmen fell upon him. The Italian
was struck a fearful blow on ' the head
with a bar of iron, badly fracturing the
skull. The Italian had strength enough
left to draw a knife, but was disarmed.

Santo. Early History.
Rome. June 2i. Ceasar Giovani Santo,
the man who murdered President Carnot,
is the son of Marie liroglio and Antione
Caesavio. He joined the anarchists' as
sociation at an early age. In January,
18!2. he tried, with two fellow anarch
ists, to start a newspaper, but was un
able to raise the funds necessary. The
police watched him until tho end of lsu;-",
when he went to Switzerland.

where they stripped him of his clothing

Chicago, June 2. William A. Sims
rott. late treasurer and secretary of the
Switchmen's Mutual Aid association has
left the city. He was discharged from
an inebriate asylum and quietly took his
wife and child and went away. His
relatives said he did not tell where he
was going, but he said he would be
absent a mouth. Considerable comment
is occasioned by the discovery that the
ex-official, whose accounts are said to be
short upward of $25,000, left without
any word as to his whereabouts.
Gun Fired Every Hour.
San Francisco. June 20. Many flag3
floated at half-mast in San Francisco
Monday out of respect to the memory of
President Carnot. The news of the presi
dent's assassination created the greatest
excitement among the men on board the
Dngay-Trouin, the big French man-of-war,
now in this port. The ship's flag
was put at half-mast. At 8 o'clock the
first gun was fired, and thereafter until
sundown a gun was fired everv hour.

Wiped Out of
Village of KeiKhley Nearly
Wichita, June 20. At 7:110 Monday
evening a terrible cyclone from the
eotithwest struck the village of Keighley,
Butler county, and nearly wiped the lit
tle town ont of existence. All the tele
graph wires are down and the informa
tion was brought to Leon by a courier
who rode a swift horse. Owing to tho
fact the courier left immediately after
the cyclone passed over, the details are
meager. It is known, however, that Ed
Thurmau was crushed to death in n
stable. Many were pinned under falling
houses and their tearful wails indicato
serious injury. It is thought many were
killed, as the cyclone swept on its coursn
as far east as the people could see it.
Two general stores, the largest buildings
in the village, were crushed like egg
shells. A freight train was standing on
the 'Frisco track at the time and six
box cars were lifted up and turned up
side down. This would indicate the
cyclone was at least 200 feet wide. Tho
wreck is standing on the track piled ISO
feet high and trains cannot pass.

The tariff bill lias been before the sen
ate for many weeks. Over -100 Demo
cratic amendments have been proposed,
and- the long debate on each of these
drags from week to week, from month
to month. Meantime the country waits;
industries of every sort, paralyzed by
the threat of the repeal of the present
protective tariff, stand idle or working
on short time until some definite legisla
tion is in sight. This long delay, this
continued tension of the business situa
tion, is wholly due to Democratic inca
pacity. Look at the record of delays. Mr. Wil
son's bill was so altered and amended in
the house that it was hardly recogniz
able. It went to the senate to be re
vamped in secret caucus and loaded
down with over 400 amendments. If
they had a mind of their own. why did
they not speak it in their first bill? Why,
if the Wilson bill is wrong, are we to be
lieve that the Wilson-Voorhees bill is
The mere careful consideration of a
tariff bill demands time. If to tlmf. '5
added 400 amendments by a Democratic
committee, many weeks must be con
sumed. All the Republicans ask is fair discus

It is not their fault if a fluctuating Dem
ocratic mind brings 400 new topics to be
They have a few rights; should be ex
pected to propose some amendments, but
they are not standing in the way.
They have dared the Democrats to
bring it to vote. They stand ready to
press the matter to a speedy decision.
All they will demand is that after fair
and full discussion there should he yea
and nay votes on all important topics, so
that there can be no Democratic hedg
ing, no hiding behind unrecorded votes.
The Democrats have full control of the
executive, the house and the senate.
That they do nothing except talk and
quarrel among themselves is no fault of
the minority. When the Republicans
had charge, they knew their mind and
spoke it aud got their legislation onto
the statute books in good order. That
the Democrats fail in this duty is be
cause they have no mind or so many dif
ferent oues; because they are unable to
rise to the dignity of initiative, but pot
ter and dodder while a nation waits in
idleness and distress.
"Protection, Protection, Protection!
The Mark Lane Express, the repre

tural classes, in its issue of May 7 has
the following strong and significant re
marks: "Protection, protection, protection!
The Liberal hears the triplet in every
political note, and there is truth in the

This is a world which refuses to be gov

with mathematical exactitude. Circum

The Industry of the Sheriff.
The platform of the Democratic party
at Chicago vigorously denounced the in
dustry of the sheriff, which, it was
claimed, had been fostered by protection.
j Remembering how busy a time tho sher
iff has had since March 4, 1893, it is as
well to see how the Democratic perform
ance has agreed with its denunciation of
the sheriff's industry.
During 1893 there were 15,oG0 trade
failures in the United States, being 52
per cent more than in 1892. Tlie liabili
ties of those who failed in 1893 were
!f4G0,000,000, as compared with liabilities
of $108,000,000 in 1892, an increase of
$352,000,000 in a single year. Was there
ever such an arrant humbug and fraud as
this Chicago denunciation of the sheriff?
United States to arise at once and de
mand the immediate cessation of the pol
icy of prostration which the high sheriff
is thrusting upon the American people
and to "denounce a policy which fosters
no industry so much as it does that of
the sheriff." American Economist.
A New Name.
It is proposed at an early day to havo
a public christening of the tariff measure
now before the senate, (ireat uncer
tainty has arisen as to the parentage of
tho bill, and in order to settle the con
troversy as to whose name it shall bear
a public christening will take place, at
which the name will be published by a
proper representative from the executive
mansion. This tariff bill will appear
somewliat as a curiosity for the lack of
a godmother. The godfather will be
chosen from the Whisky or the Sugar
Some of the names suggested are in
the form of compromises, as follows:
Voor-Harris, Gor-Mills, Voor-Hill-Mills
or Gor-Voor-Brice-Land. The commit
tee on nomenclature and title of the
bill object to the use of any long words,
as it is expected in the next national
campaign that the name of this splendid
measure will need to be repeated quite
often; hence a very short, pertinent name
will be needed. Some of the following
are most popular: Trust-Land, Cleve
Hill. Among the many bills starting out
with the original Wilson bill, the Voor
hees bill, etc., the most popular seems to
be the Sugar bill.
A dispatch has been received at th
senate from some foreign beneficiary,
without the fear of the Lord in his heart,
who suggested the name Canadian bill.
This would be a give away and would
not do at all, as the purpose of this bill
uuqestionably is to cover, as far as pos
sible, the exact results expected to be ob
tained. People are becoming so impa
tient in waiting for the passage of the
bill that some one has suggested the due
bill. The gentlemen of the press are re
quested to forbear making any refer
ence to this variously unnamed bill un
til such time as the committee on financu
are able to give out officially the name
by which it must afterward be desig

Gradually, but surely, the United
States is penetrating markets which
Great Britain has tenaciously held and
controlled for many years. In corrobora
tion of this view one of the leading Eng

with British Honduras, judging from the
latest official statistics, is not in a healthy

$744,000 in 1683 to 682,000 in 1892. On
the other hand, the imports from the
United States have increased from $452,
000 in 1883 to f 793,000 in 1892. The ex
ports of the colony also show a decline
as regards the United Kingdom, while
those sent to the United States have in
creased from 253,000 in 1833 to $530,000
in 1893. The total foreign trade of the
colony has increased, but the United
Kingdom has been a loser." These are
facts and are in every sense important.

Buy Homemade Goods.
If yon are employed in a factory that
makes dress goods and your wife and
your neighbor's wife should each buy a
dress pattern that was made in England,
they are depriving you of work because
there must bo a smaller demand for the
goods you are making, and your employ
er cannot make more goods than the peo
ple will buy just for the sake of finding
work for you. See that they buy goods
made in your factor.
