MADRID, May 10. siueen Victoria gave
; birth today to a son, who becomes heir to
the throne of pain.
The birth of the royal baby has been
awaited with great intercut throughout
Bpaln, The newt from the palace this
morning that the accouchement was Im
minent spread like wildfire and crowds
flocked to tot great plaza fronting the
royal palace. The happy event had taken
1 the capital somewhat by surprise, for only
( yesterday afternoon the queen had taken
her customary drive and the court physl
! clans had Intimated that another two
weeks would pass before confinement.
Messenger were hastily dispatched to the
prime minister and other chief court dig
nitaries, as th advent of an heir to the
throne of Spain Is an event of the deepest
political significance. Through the early
morning ministers and big functionaries
arrived at the court of the palace.
Meantime word reached the waiting
throngs that the queen was progressing
. well. The doctors pronounced her condi
tion normal and satisfactory-' King Alfonso
remained at the queen's bedside
At V o'clock this morning the king can
celled the meeting of the council of minis
ters, which was to hnve considered cur
rent etnte affairs. By 10 o'clock the high
functionaries of the state and capital, with
many ambassadors and ministers, In their
court costumes, had reached the palace.
At noon this assemblage of the nobility
and power of Spain was grouped In the
royal apartments Set aside for official cere,
monies awaiting with feelings of profound
emotion the announcement of the birth of
the heir. The birth of the babe occurred
at 12:45 p. m. The announcement was Im
mediately conveyed to the waiting officials
and crowds outside the palace, who received
the glad tidings with mingled feelings of
enthusiasm and emotion. That the queen
had been blessed with a . son a .male holr
to the throne was no less welcome than
the happy event Itself.
Cheers for Prtnee.
The formal announcement of the birth Of
the ohlld. ws made by the camurara
mayor, or mistress of the robes, to Premier
Maura, who formally communicated the
fact to the distinguished company In the
words. "Gentlemen, it Is a prince."
The news was greeted with the greatest
enthusiasm, which swelled Into a spontane
ous cheer as King Alfonso himself entered,
accompanying the camarara mayor, carry
ing a huge silver tray, ."wpen which was
lying the newly born royal baby, covered
with delicate lace garments. The Infanta
Kulalle was at the king's side as he en
tered with his new-born son.
The scene was most Impressive. Premier
Maura at once advanced and with some
hesitation relieved the mistress of the
robes of her precious load. Then, bearing
the trr.y, the premier proceeded slowly to
the center of the room, where all present
crowfTed around, anxious to obtain a
glimpse of the child, which was presented
to one after the other In their order of
court precedence. When the curiosity of
all those present was satisfied the babe
was handed back to the mistress of the
robes and by the latter was given to the
royal nurse, who Immediately returned to
the side of the queen.
As the nurse appeared In the royal apart
ments a roar of cheering- could be heard
from the outside of the palace. In the
meantime the scenes In the streets outside
were almost beyond description. Business
had been auspended for hours previous to
the announcement of the child's birth. An
Immense multitude gathered In the vicinity
of the palace and when the royal standard.
of red and gold, fluttered up to the peak
of the flagstaff on the punta dedlamente,
making known1 that a prince of the As
. turtos was born, a great shout of Joy went
up from the assembled masses.
Immediately afterward a salute of twen
l tT-ons guns carried the news to the most
remote confines of the city and the tnhabt
- tanta of the surrounding country. As the
sixteenth report resounded (fifteen guns
only would have been fired to announce the
birth of a girl) the men, women and chil
dren waiting In the streets and on the bal
conies aad roofs gave voice to their satis
faction, and soon the whole ctty was ring
ing with cries of "Long live the prince!"
"Long live ths queen t" and "Long live ths
king!" , ,
61msltane (sly ths pubUo blossomed out
as If by iua ic with the Spanish colors and
singing, dancing and otherwise rejoicing,
almost ths entire population of the ctty
streaming in the direction of the palace,
Ths child la described as a robust blonde
and as having his mother's complexion.
Almost Immediately after the birth had
been announced a Te Deum was chanted
la the chapel of the palace, where the holy
sacrament had remained exposed through
out the aocouchemant of the queen. In
accordance with tradition, shortly after tha
bl.th of the heir to the throne the king

It Will Not Be Possible to Get Soma

Both Sides from Other
BOISE, Idaho, May 10-There Is notlce
sble evidence of relaxation In the atmos
phere of Boise today. Notwithstanding an
outward appearance of apathy and lack of
Interest In the case, there has existed for
some time In Boise an extremely tense con
dition. Reports as to what might hnpr.cn
either before the'trlal opened or during Its
progress hnve tended to create a very de
cided feeling of uneasiness.
The presence In the court house of a
number of private detectives employed by
both sides and the outspoken attacks by
the radical element of the socialists nece.
sarlly brought out many rumors and reports
purporting to come from authentic sources
of prohab'e trouble such n an attsck on
the Jail or an attempt to spirit away some
of the chief witnesses for the prosecution.
The proceedings In the court room yester
day did much to dissipate this. There was
a spirit of give and take. A Joke from
one or another of counsel or a laugh caused
by the answer of the talesman scted as
safety vnlves, and when the dny was over
the strain was relieved and every one
Richardson Expects Jury Soon,
Mr. Richardson, one of Haywood's leading
counsel, said today:
"We expect tho sheriff will select his
veniremen with fairness and with core so
as to enable us to secure an Impartial Jury.
If the right class of men Is selected, we
will not take a long time to secure a Jury."
While the number of witnesses to be
called on both sides looks formklnble, there
Is good reason to believe that a larse num
ber of those witnesses will not be In at
tendance, A considerable proportion of the
witnesses for the prosecution live In Colo
rado or In other neighboring states. This
Is also true of the defen-e. as the home nf
the prisoners Is In Colorado and It Is nut
possible to bring them to Idaho against
Lawyers of Boise not connected ln any
way with the case, but who know as much
as Is known of what both sides expect to
do, say that after the Jury Is secured the
trial of the case ought to be over In two
weeks. Judge Fremont Wood exneots to
waste no time, and another adjournment Is
hot looked for after" Monday. ' The -court
will sit from 10 a. m. to noon and from 1
p. to,, till t p. m. and sometimes until
o'clock, with one long session on Saturdays.

In the belief existing In some quarters
that Orchard will refuse to testify. They
believe that he will make, his statement
upon the stand. On all sides there Is a
question as to how far Orchard will be al

alleged Implicates Haywood, Moyer ard
Pettibone. It la around this evidence that
the whole case undoubtedly will move.

said to The Bee correspondent this even
ing that he knew absolutely nothing what
ever of th Chicago Journal's claim that
his brother had been arrested In Chicago
charged with burglary and served a term
In the Jollet penitentiary. The first news
he had of the case was when the cor

spent soms time ln Nebraska during that
time, but from various words received from
him I am morally confident that he was
not ln Chicago."

absolutely no truth In the story. Mrs.
