Lyons by Osare Santo, an Italian
niiiirchist, 21 years old.
l'rosiuent Carnot wont to Lyons to
visit the exhibition of art, sciences and
industries. Be left the chamber of
commereo banquet, given in his honor,
shortly after 9 o'clock and walked to
his carriage, which was waiting in the
Place De La Bourse Ho hud hardly
tukon his seat whon Santo, n newspa
per iu bis hand, pressed through the
crowd and sprang upon the carriage
step. President Carnot started slight
ly. Santo snatched a dagger from the
newspaper and plunged it into the
president's abdomen near the liver.
The president sank back unconscious.
Ho was taken at once to the prefeo
ture and the most skilful surgeons in
the city were summoned. Meantime
Santo was arrested.
The nows spread swiftly to every
part of the eity. Infuriated i crowds
filled the streets. I . tors 10 o'clock an
Italian restaurant had beren sacked and
the police were obliged to strain every
uerve to proteot the Italian consulate.
THE RKCKPTION AT LYONS.
President Carnot arrived iu Lyons
yesterday and intended lo remain
there over Tuesday. Ho was accom
panied by General Borius, chief of his
military household, most of his other
household officials, Premier Dupny, M.
Burdeau and other members of the
cabinet. He was received enthusiastic
ally ut the station by the mayor and dis
trict officials, who, in twenty-seven Lan
daus drawn by horses draped with the
tri -color, oscorted him and his party to
the Hotel De Ville. Cheering crowds
filled the street and gave the president
such u welcome as be had seldom re
ceived. There ws a luncheon at the
Hotel De Ville and In the evening a
dinner at the prefecture. From the
balcony of the prefecture the president
reviewed a large torchlight procession
which was followed by fireworks aud
an illumination. Afterward the pro
gramme of the city officials for Sun
day, Monday and Tuesday was sub
mitted to him in detail and he ex
pressed his satisfaction with the ar
rangements. Today the president and hie party
paid a state visit to the exhibition.
Afterward the president held a recep
caption at the prefecture. He planned
to go to the Grand theater on the Place
Da La Comedie this evening after the
banquet at the chamber of commerce.
He was In a particularly happy mood
during the banquet and was noticeably
elated by the cordiality of his reoeption
not only by the crowd outside the
building, but also by the guests with
in. He was cheered incesoaatly from
the niouumt he left the chamber of
commerce until he took the carriage
for the theater. The demonstrative
enthusiasm of the crowd caused the
confusion wbioh gave Santo hit oppor
tunity, a he was able to push hit way
forward quite unnoticed" nntil at the
tep of the oarriage.
As Santo sprang away from the oar
riage step and tried to escape, he was
seized and surrounded. But for the
prompt Interference of the police he
would have been torn and trampled to
death on the spot. As soon as the police
extricated him from tho hands of his
captors, they hurried him off to the
SCENES AT THE THEATER.
At 9 o'clock all who had been invited
to attend the gala performance in the
presidont'e honor bad gathered in the
Grand theater. Every seat outside the
boxes was filled, The audience awaited
impatiently the arrival of the presi
dental party. Suddenly two men ran
up to the main outrauce and called out
that the president had been killed.
The words had immediate effect upon
the erowd. On every side expressions
of execration and vegeanoe filled the
air and cries of "a mort," "a mort"
and ''vengeance" were heard in all
parts of the building. M. Rivand, the
prefeot, addressed the audience and
said that in the Rue De La Repnblique
a wretch who had approached M. Car
not under the pretext of presenting a
petition, stabbed the president with a
dagger. Here M. Rivaud was again
Interrupted with shouts of indignation
and was heard with uiffioulty when he
added: "Do not make my task more
painful. We have left M. Carnot In
the hands of doctors. You will under
stand that under these circumstances,
all hearts being filled with sorrow, the
performance cannot taka place."
DIED OF HEMORRHAGES,
The president bad repeated hemorr
hages after he was removed to the
prefecture. He sank gradually but
steadily until 18.40 o'clock, when he
died. Mme Carnot and her two sour
left Paris at 11 67 o'olook last evening
by speeial train for Lyons. All the
ministers who did not go to Lyons
with the president were in council at
the Ely see at midnight. The senate
and chamber will be convoked today.
An eye-witness who was walking
breast of the president's carriage with
Adrien Dupuy, the premier's brother,
says that as the president's carriage
approached the Credit Lyonnals, his
own attention was attracted by n
slight disturbance in the front line of
the crowd. He then saw the earrings
top. The president had fallen back
against the cushions and his face had
become livid. An onjtcry was raised
at once. Hundreds shouted that an at
tempt upon the president's life had
been made, ami the crowd seemed sud
denly to go mad with excitement.
"Meanwhile tin- assas9in had been
felled to the ground by u blow by M.
Uivand, perftct of tho Rhone. lie whs
surrounded by an ungry crowd and
cries of 'lynch him' wore heard on nil
sides. It was only with the greatest
difficulty that the police were able to
protect him from tho fury of tho peo
ple In fact, had not a number of
mounted guards surrounded und pro
tected the police on their way to the
.station, the prisoner would have been
taken from them and beaten to death."
At ll.HO o'clock Sunday evening the
surgeons at the prefecture lisued this
bulletin: "The president's condition is
sUrming but not hopeless. The wound
is in tho region of the liver. The
hemorrhage, whioh at first was Very
copious, has now ceased." A little
more than an hour later the president
Marie Francois Sadi Carnot, prcsi
dent of the French republic, was born
at Limoges in August, Wl, He was
a grandson of Carnot, "the organizer
of victory," under the French conven
tion, and was a civil engineer by pro
fession. At the age of 20 he entered
as a student in the Boole Polytsch
nique, nnd passed with distinction to a
senool for npecial instruction in the
building of roads and bridges. During
the siege of Paris in 1871 he was ap
pointed prefect of the Seine Inferiere,
and as commissary general gave valu
able assistance in organizing tho de
fences of that department.
In February, 1871, he took his seat lo

BORROW AT WASHINGTON.
Washington, D. c, June 24 The
first bulletins of the assassination of the
president of the French Republic were
received in Washington shortly before
6 p. m. (United St'ites time) and ran
through the community like an olectric
shock. Tho While House was called

Two other conspicuous instances in
French history of assassination by the
knife, the killinrr of Marat by Char

stabbing of Henry IV by Ravaillac
were recalled as the only instance in
modern history of the successful ac

citizens of Washington, who within
the past thirty years have witnessed
the nnprovked murder two of our own
presidonts by tho assassin's bullet, the
apparently aimless character of the
crime against the president of the
French republic carried with it an ap
peal to their sympathies of especial
force. Tho French chamber of depu
ties adjourned when the news of the
death of Garfield was received. If
matters of such urgent importance
were not mow pressing Upon congress,
it is probable that like action would be
taken by our own legislative body.
Mr. J. Pstenotre, the French ambas

THE tag James D, Nichols, owned

foundered off tho Atlantic High

There was a quantity of beer abroad,
but from the accounts of the rescued
passengers, no one was intoxicated.
The Nichols passed on down through
the narrows and then moved over to
tho fishing banks oft the Highlands not
far from Sea Bright. She arrived
there about 9:30 o'clock Here the ex
cursionists fished until about noon,
when tho start for the home jonrney
Wits made. As the tug proceeded on
her course towards tho city, the wind
freshened to some extent, and the
waves rolled higbor. The change in
the weather and the sea seemed not to
affect the craft or tho spirits of thoso
on board her.
The steamer Algonquin, of the Clyde
line, passed the tug, and the latter fol
lowed in the wake of the big steamer.
At that time there appeared to be noth
ing amiss on the Nichols. But in half
an hour the situation was completely
changed. The waves became more
boisterous and dashed up against the
sides of the tug, throwing spray over
the excursionists who were on the
deck. And here, where the trouble
commenced, and stories as to what
next happened commencA to conflict.
According to one chapter of tho narra
tives, the finhermeu, to avoid getting
wet, moved around on the dry sido of
the vessel. It is olalmod by Bonie that
this action on the part of the passengers
resulted in the foundering of the tng.

By others it Is claimed that the

at all to do with the accident. These

With the aid of his glasses he saw the
craft was crowded with people and
that she was on the point of founder

fore the screws of the ship bed ceased
their revolutions an order had been
issued to lower and man the Itfeaboat.
Boat No. 4 wus hurriedly swung from
its dnvitts and Officer Rich, accom
panied by Seamen Chris Hansen, John
Nelson, Q. Nelson and John Tanger
son scrambled into it.
When the work of lowering the boat
was accomplished, the people On the
Algonquin looked over the water to
where tliey had seen the tug. As they
did so the little vessel careoned over
to the starboard, her smokestack al
most touching the crest of a wave,

Just at this time, however, another
big white cap came rolling along and
striking the tug, sent her over the
other way. Thus thn water played

sank ont of sight, the top wheel house,

life raft was the most sought for, and
those who were so fortunate as to make
it, were saved.
When the Algonquin's boat reached
tho scene of the accident and com
menced the work of rescue, she wsh
joined in her labor by the three above
namol tngs, all of whioh had boen
cruising in the vicinity. Togethor
they commenced to take the people

floating aimlessly about by the Al
gonquin's crew. It was full of water
and had evidently boen overturned

body of a man. Whoever he was he
had probably prepared for the plunge
Into the soa. His cost was off and his
shirt sleeves rolled up to his shoulders.
Effort wero made to revive tho spark
of life that was at first thought to still
be within him, but they were unavnil

had picked npall they could carry.nlno
living and ono dead, they put back to
the vessel, which in the meantirne had

the point where the accident had oc
curred It was far too rough to attempt
to bring the rescued on board the
Htratnor so a lino waa thrown the life

At the latter place they wero brought
to tho Algonquin's deck. Lator they
were brought up to the city by the
steamer. Tho tugs which had assisted
in tho rescuo also brought to the city
the survivors they had picked up.
A Number of Slavs and Poles Are

Punxsutawney, Pa. , June 24. Some
time during last night 25 of tho police
of the Bell, Lewis nnd Yates company,
who had been stationed at the Eleanors
mine, wore taken through this place
and stationed nt Walstoa mine.
At 0. :t0 this morning sixty Poles nnd
Slavs were brought hero from Roches
and Buffalo, and wore immediately
taken up to Walston mine. On their
arrival thern thoy wem met by a crowd
of minors composed mostly of their
own people. Tho polico stationed
there made an attempt to prevent the
miners from talking to them, but the
erowd increased so rapidly that the po
lice withdrew nnd called on the troops.
The commanding officer with twelve
men, who wore doing guard duty, went
to the scone, but found no disorder.
Tho miners as aoon as the police left
explained to the new men that they

places and if possible break the strike.
I he new men in reply said that thoy
had been hired to work on the railroad
at $2.25 par day and they hnd no in
tention of taking the strikers places.
Late this afternoon two passenger
ooaches filled with privatepolice passed
through here for Walston. The situa

it is possiblo that there may be a con

police arrived at the Adrian mine. The
car had no soonor stopped than it wus
surrounded by at least 1,000 miners,
women and children, who climbed all
over the car yelling and hooting. The
policemen wero unarmed. The militia
was sent for nnd company F was or
dered to the scene nut were unable to

were then ordered out and went to the
scone at double quick, and when the
miners saw tho reinforcements they
L. W. Robinson, the general super
intendent here, was with the police.
He was pulled out of the car by the
men and beaten badly by them, while
tho women spat in his face, The great
est excitement prevails in that region.
A visit was made to the residence of
Superintendent Robinson tonight, and
it was fonnd that he was not so bndiy
injured as waa at first reported. The
deputies wore armed with Winches
ters, but tho Bhoriff would not give
the order to fire. The sheriff who had
charge of tho police received a ssvero
blow above tho left eye from the bands
of one of the women and was other
wise badly used up. As soon as he
was able to get out of tho mob's hands
he went to notify the militia.
At 11 o'clock tonight shots are being
fired at Adrinn mine. Two carloads
of nw men woro this morning taken

posed to be the murderer, under arrest
It proved, howover, that the wrong
person had been taken into custody and
the party was compelled to return to
this city empty handed.
Frank Egli, a well educated and in
telligent Italian, who resides on the
South Side, claims that ono of his
countrymen who works with him nt
Duryoa, knows where murderer
Medala is in hiding. H says that the
place is only a short distaneo from this
city, and that Medala is waiting for his
friends to supply him with enough of
clothing to enable him to leave Amer

anything about the case. He serms
fearful that it may result in harm to
him and in conversation with the re
porter yesterday he said several times
that he would likoto have a revolver to
protect himself with.
Yesterday afternoon Italians who are
