PITTSDOKO , Pa. , July ! i3. A desperate nd almost successful attempt was made this afternoon to assassinate Henry Clay FrlcK , cbnlrinnn of the Curucglo Steel company , limited. His assailant was Alex Borkman , a Kus- Mini Jew , who cumo here from' Now York with the avldotit lotontlon of removing the man who has ooon the principal ono of tlio employers in the great struggle now point ; on between capital ana labor In this city. It 4 was a few minutes ueforo 2 o'clock this afternoon when a dark coinploxlonod young man with n Jewish caste of eounUmanco , of medium height aud fairly well drtssod. entered - tored the elevator In the Chroulolo-Tole- prnph bulldlug , which Is also occupied by the Carnegie Stc"l company , limited , and nsknd to bo lot oft nt Mr. Frictt's oilloj. The young man had boon a frequent visitor dur ing the past few days , and Uavld Forlney , the elevator boy , thought nothing of the request , but stopped ut the pocond floor und polntod out the way to the chairman's pri- vulo room. Hlurtled \ > r Pistol Shots. Two minutes later the occupants of the building and passors-by on Fifth avenue were startled by three pistol shots , llrod In rapid succession. Intuitively the victim was dh'Inod and "FrlcK Is shotl1' "Frick Is shot ! " were tno words soon passed from mouth to mouth on the street. It was trua. A man bollovod to bo a crank had assailed the grout stool raiitor , but the f latter , tiotwlthatnudin ? two bullet wounds find four ugly gashes from a dagger , still lives and will probably recover. As was his custom Mr. Frick took lunch nt the Duqucsno club ut noon today and ro- turnud to his onico at 1:3j : thU afternoon. Ho wont to the Uflh Hoar , where ho re mained but a few minutes. Ho than came down the elevator to his private room on the second floor , fronting on Fifth avenue , where ho scaled hlmsolf nt his desk. The olllco of Mr. Lolshmnn , a business partner of Mr. Frlck's , adjoins that of the latter. Mr. Lelshman caino In and the two we.ro holding u private conference , no ono clso being In the room. The Woiild-llo Assimgln Appear * . A few minutes before 2 o'clock Harry licckloy , the ofllco boy , noticed u man hastily push open the swinging gate In tbo railing that runs botwcon thu public ) portion and the enclosure where the desks of the stenographers and clerk" are located. There was no ono'noar the private odlco door and the boy hurried up to ask the In truder what ho wanted , out ho was too Into , as the stranger hud already entered the private apartment. As ho entered the ofllco \ Mr. Frick looked up , us did also Mr. Lelsh- iniin , to see who It was. Mr. FrlcK was examining n bundle of paporf. The man prang within about , llvo foot of Mr. Frick ami quickly drawing his revolver pulled the trlcgor. The first cartridge did not explode , the locond shot entering the back nf Air. Frlck's neck und glancing downward , passed to the outsldo below the armpit. Frick ma-Jo an exclamation and jumped to the circular window on Fifth avenue and rlod In vain to open It. The assailant passed In front of the desk , and approaching close to Mr. Frick , lived ngaln. The bull entered the muscle on the left siuo of the neck and passed around to a lodgement under tbo right car , where it was later reached by the probo. Dexporato Mrilgulo ulth the Desperado. At this instant Mr. LeUhman throw him elf on the would-bo assassin and wrestled for possession of tha revolver. Mr. Lclsh man clutched the barrel and pointed the \ imtzzlo upward , ns the carlrlugo exploded the ball entered the plastering near the glass partition. With agility the desperado drew n dugrcr niul attempted to stub Mr. Lcish man , who was holding the assailant by the shoulder and body. Mr. Frick saw the gleam of steel , and al though staggering from the shock of the two wounds and blooding profusely , Jumped between - twoon the man and sclzad tha man's arm. The latter freed himself from Irishman's grasp and plunged the dagger Into Mr. Frlck's right ldo Just above the hip , mak ing an ugly wound three Inches long. Ho inadn another lunge and this tftno the knlfo truck higher up , but the point ttruult a rib and glanced down without Inlllcilug much of an Injury. Twice again was the kntfo 'thrust at Mr. Fnou , but ho wus moiely scratched by those last attempts to kill him. The struggle was In full view nf these on the street. By this time the olllco boys and Deputy Sheriff May , who Just entered ns the flrntshot was tired , throw themselves on tno ustusbln. I'rlck Sui < > * HU A * lliint' * 1.1 IV. Mny hud drawn tils revolver und was about to shoot the follow In the bark when Frick cried out : "Don't kill him. Wo'vo got him all right. Leave him to the law. " The man broke awuy and triad to escape but u'at bcciircd und taken to the Central pollco station. Thu prompt uetlon of Mr. Frick saved the lives of Mr. Lolshmnn and lili self.appointed executioner. In live mlii- utos a dozen surgeons , Including Lrs. ) Lltch * Hold , McClctluml , Murdock and Joseph and John Dleknon , were nt hand. Mr , Frick won told to llo down on a louneo and after his clothing hud been removed the wounds \voro washed and the blood stopped. During nil this tlmo thn wounded man was unlm , had a ) > rfcct command of hU features mid appar ently WUB less excited thnn utiy other person in the roam. From tlmo to tlmo ho tnndosug. pe tlon as to how badly ho wu hurt , and a bnlf hour after the shooting directed a mcs. * ago lo Andrew Carnegie about thn nssuult , In which ho told him ho thought ho would bo ill right. At Mr. Prick's request ill communication with his residence was shut off nnd his brothcr-ln-liuv wns sent to Inform Ms wlfo of his llliuss nnd to reassure bar.

In the meanwhile Mr. Frick was removoi to the back ofllo-i , where the physicians mndo a careful examination , nnd at 4 p. m. tdo bullet was removed and the wounded man was resting easy. The news created intense oxcitcmont nail telegrams poured In on Mr. Friclc from pcoplo high and low from various parts of the United States. At no time did ho bollovoho bcllovo ho was fatally injured nnd , after tha romoral ot the bullets , to four of his stenographers ho di rected Icttors undnskoJ his chlofs about the condition of attain at Homestead and Uesquosno.

A largo crowd followed the patrol wagon con taining tbo prisoner to the central i-ollce station und when the lock-up wai reached , the police were compelled to shut the gates to the yard to keep out the pooplo. The pri-ioner was so much exhausted trom excitement that ho could not answer tno usual questions for several minutes.

" Then Inspector McKolvlo had the room cleared In order to alMta the excitement und refused lo allow auyono to talk to the pris oner.

Several months ago I pointed out to the readers of the Herald ihoaangor to the pence of Euronj that was to bj npprohondcd from that quarter. I was nol deceived. England In January , 18VU , sip nod a treaty with Spain and Italy for the apportionment of Morrocco to tha exclusion of Franco * Franco , however , has the right to bo con sulted iu Moorish affairs , slnco Algiers Is contiguous lo Morrocco. The French diplomats said nolulng , but mndc n note of what was being done. England did not dc- slro to put into operation tbo treaty made with the European powers , nnd so she tried to tnko for herself ulono all Iho profit deriv able. With this end in view , she sent to Morrocco Sir Charles Evau Smith , charged to conclude a treaty of commerce with the sultan , but this treaty covered almost every question , und If iho sultan slgnod it , Mor rocco would bu placed virtually under an English protectorate. Armucd the Ilrltlnli I.lon. Tbo negotiations , which lusted for several months , toll Ihrougb because the sultan was not willing to accord England the right to establish stations upon Moorish territory. All the Encllsh newspapers were furious. They accused Franco of b Ing the cause of this crushing blow lo English diplomacy. It would not hnvo bjcn possible to have talton Iho Engllslf auger seriously if Ihcro had not come at the same tlmo the nowJ that disturbances had broken out in Morroceo and that Europeans were in danger. Soon English Intervention became necessary to restore order , and It looked us If tha same blow would bo struck as hnd been struck In Egypt. Intervention iu Mor rocco "to ro-osUbllsh order" meant the prompt bring ubout of the occupation of the country , and a litllo nfter its annexa tion would bo possible.
