Sir. I'rlck-TUo Details.
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 ,
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
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
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

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

utos a dozen surgeons , Including Lrs. ) Lltch *

In which ho told him ho thought ho would bo

At Mr. Prick's request ill communication
with his residence was shut off nnd his

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

Mr. Frick would recover , although a son-

At II o'clock ho vwas reported as resting

the police were compelled to shut the gates

The pri-ioner was so much exhausted trom

When nskcii to toll \vhyho attempted the

und it was necessary to choke him
till ho was black In thu fuco before ho
would glvo Iho shell UP. It was taken to
the establishment of Arthur Kirk & Sons ,
where it was pronounced to bo a giant
powder cap of the same kind used by Ling ,

Of course t.tio liberal-unionist se-

PAUIS , July 33. | Now York Herald Cable
Special to THE Bus. ] The vacntlou which
the political world appears lo have boon tak
ing , nnd the consequent calm , has been
broken In upon by recent cvonts In Morrocco.
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. Lara Salis
bury , who at this tlmo was
considerably hnmparod by the elections , yet
in spite of them wanted lo ma'.to a grand
coup In the Jingo line to demonstrate that
Iho consorvallvo party was very patriotic
and to causa a now embarrassment to Iho
"grand old mm. " A dispatch last ovonlng
states lhat Sir Charles Evan Smith had c. m
barked at Tangior.
Lot u ; sco if ho will return , which Is al
most cartulu if England does tbo least thing
in Morocco.

Franco will protect by every moans In her
power. If England should land ton man upon
the Moorish ojast , Franco will land twenty.
No mutter what happens , even should that
bo the immediate result , wo cannot permit
the repetition of the historic Egyptian ludl-
donl , and public opinion will foroo the gov
ernment into notion.
The Moorish question , without very much
disturbing the diplomatic world , yet gives
cause for serious rellootlon. It Is said that
England aid Franco will avoid as much as
possihld a conlllct , but it Is possible that we
may see a number of skirmishes.
Outsldo of this the European situation Is
ouo of tranqulllty. As Iho summer season
rolla on ibo governments of central Europe
ara very much exercised about It , and are
taking precautions ngatnst Iho invutlon of
cholera. It Is difficult to prevent the
ravages of this plague , which has mudo such
frighlful havoc In the south of Russia.
As to Iho conflict between Emperor Wil
liam and Prlnco Bismarck wo must wait for
the return of the kaiser from his whaling
expedition , to s'co what the news will bo.
Then most likely wo shall have a controversy
of u slormy character , the young sovereign
and his old chancellor being very much iu-
cones , iho ouo against the other.

How Senator * mid Ut-prcMriitiiUvcn View thu
AHHiiult on Mr. I'rlok.
WJISHINOTOX. D/C. , July 23. "Tho people
who will regret this most are Xho strikers. "
That is what n prominent democratic sonalor
said this afternoon when iho news Hashed ever
Ibo wlrea to-the capital that Mr. Frick had
been shot. Ho expressed what was iu every
body's mind ut tbo time. Everywhere , nlso ,
there were expressions of sympathy for thu
man Ihus murderously stricken down. But
few senators wore in tbo chumbar when the
news came of the shooting of Mr. Frlok.
They wuro deeply impressed , und some of
them w'lo have been foremost In the debates
which have taken place upon the subject of
the relations of capital and labor und the
Homestead troubles were plunged into a
thoughtful mood. It wus with a fooling of
rcllaf that they received the tutor dispatch ,
announcing thai Iho aot wai not committed
by any of the strikers , although nome of the
senators who sympathized with the latter
feared lhat Iho Utter organization would beheld
hold chargeable with ibo occurrence by many
people who jump at conclusions.
Senators were not dUpe od to discuss the
manor. The olfunt of iho news wus moro
noticeable in Iho house , for little attention
was puid to the current business.
The mum ben of the Homestead Investi
gating committee , who expressed themselves
for publication in regard to the effect ot the
tragedy nt I'itUburif , were very brief In
their uttoruncos. They preferred to wait
until they had hoard nil the funw In the cuso
before passing judinneut upon the case.
C'liili'iniui O.urb' Opinion ,
Hoprciontativo ( Jutes , the chairman ot the
committee , read the dispatches very cure *
fully and then said : "I regret very much
to hear of tha shooting. It adds to the corn ,

hoaid of the shooting. "
Brodorlck , nnothor-uiembor of the Investi
gation committee , recanted the shooting ns
very unfortunate , Indood. It wns hard to
tell whether or not the affair would huvo
nny effect , on the Inbor question. It would
no' , affect the laboring men's causa unless It
wns shown lhat the man who committed the
deed was connected with the laboring men's
organization. If Iho deed wus that ot an ir
responsible crank , ( ns Mr. Brodorlck be
lieved it to bo ) , it ought not to affect injuri
ously the causa of the laboring people , or
that nf any ouo cUc.
