fhe Assassin of Caraot Sentenced to Meet
Death Upon the Guillotine.
The Murderer Brought Into Court
Carefully Guarded Looked Pale and
Jaded His Bravado Evidently

Prisoner and a Soldier Who
estitied Against Hilm.
Lyons, France, Aug. 3.
(7i ASERIO SANTO, the murderer of
I u. President Ciiruot, heard his
I 11 ilooui pronouueed this morning.
vs tin whs sentenced to die upon
nit) guillotine.
Wliua the assize court opened this
morning, about the same class of audi
nee Whs present as yesterday. A regi
ment of soldiers surrounded tbe court
house, mid detachments of infantry
and cavalry guarded tbe approaches.
As upon tbe opening day, a number
of ii'uyly dressed woman occupied tbe
principal seats in the gallery. Fewer
of the general public were admitted
into tbe bedy of the room.
Caserio, who seemed to have passed
a sleepless nitfht, in spite of his forced
bravado, looked pale ana nervous as he
wus led into the court room between
two detective officers.
Tha van that brought him from St.
Paul prison was guarded by a squad of
dragoons n the same manner us yes
terday. Ev ry precaution whs taken
to preserve tbe peace and prevent anar
chistic outrage. Strangers in the city
wire scrutinized and all known sym
pathizers with tbe oause of the Beds
were placed under special polios espi
onage. While nobody In Lyons or France,
for that mutter, anticipated any other
verdist tnnn that of death, and that
swiftly, noue were prepared for so sud
den a termination of the trial. Son to
himsnlf bad not for a moment indulged
the hope that be would escape the
knife, and had nerved himself to as
sume a caimoeaa that his twitching fin
gers belied. Nevertheless, it Is acknowl
edged that the Hssassin has brought
himself to regard himself in the light
of a liberator and a martyr. H is so
prettily vuin aud earegiously egotistical.
Thus be poses before the court and
spectators, and derives Immense satis
faction out of the fact that a hundred
newspaper scribes are at this moment
sending accounts of his trial to the
four quarters of the earth.
The presiding judge, Breuillao, open
ed the session at about 0 a. m. and im
mediately orderod Caario to be pro
duced. Lsblnnc. the soldier who win
a follow prisoner with Caserio at Mar
seilles, tstiQd that Caserio told bim
that bo intended to kill President Car
not, probably at Lyons, when the pres
ident visited that city.
"That is a lie," interrupted Casorlo
excitedly. -'I never told you or any
one else anything about mv plans."
When Luciano's testimony wag fin
ished, the publio prosecutor reviewed
at length the details of tbe trial and
demunded that tbe Jury should not
hesitate to do its duty. Santo listened
to his speech with a smile of contempt
on his face.
M. Dubreail, couasel for the defense
follftwed with an appeal for the pris
oner. He has d his defense on three
point; (1) That there was lunacy in
prisoner's family; (2) his anarchist
surroundings; (3) the impossibility of
reeonciliug the assassin's religious
life with a premeditated attempt at
The jury was out about a quarter of
an hour. When tbe jury returned
Caserio was brought in and f iced the
con-t for the last time. Judge Breuillao
turned to the prisoner for a moment
and then, addressing the jnry, asked
the latter tbe formal question:
"Is Caserio Santo Geronimo guilty
or not guilty of the crime of assassinat
ing tbe president of the republic?"
Tuere was some eonfusion as the In.
terpeter translated to the prisoner
what he said; but audible over the
interpreter's voice was tbe reply of tbe
foreman of the jury: "Guilty with
out extenuating circumstances." There
was silense again aa the verdict was
translated to Caserio, who reoeived it
with oynloal smite."
The presiding judgs, as soon as the
prisoner was acquainted with tbe jury's
finding, arose and, speaking directly to
the assassin, said : "The coart con
demns Caserio Santo Geronimo to
death. You have three days In which
to appeal to tbe court of oassation."
When tbe sentence was ottered Ca
serio exclaimed, "Vive la Revolution
Notwithstanding the prisoner'! de
fiant attitude, bis habitual smile dis
appeared from bis faoe when the sent
ence was pronounced.
Throughout the city intense satis far
Hon is expressed over the speedy sent
ence of tbe miserable assassin, Those
Beds who might be inclined to com
miserate tbe wretch are following tbe
dlotates of prudence and remaining

The Situation as Revealed in Dunn &
Co's. Weekly Review Out
look More Hopeful.
New York, Aug. 8 R. G. Dun &
Co.'s weekly review of trade tomorrow
will say: So much business has been
deferred during the past year, and
merchandise stocks have been so re
duced, that tbe mure approach of a de
cision in the tariff question without
certainty what it is to be, has this
week encouraged large preparation for
increased business. In spite of outgo
ing gold and sinking treasury reserves,
small railroad earnings, some injury to
crops and increased trouble in the coke
regions, the tone and tbe outlook are
more hopeful.
Tbe injury to crops by hot winds and
drought, if as great as some report, will
affect all interests, hat at this season it
is never easy to distinguish between
local and general dum tge.
After tariff uncertainties have van
ished, It will be recognized that pur
chasers and orders for tbe coming year
win depend largely upon tbe crops.
But at present the DrosDect of a deci
sion in oongress, and the common Im
pression tbat tbe pending bill may fall
between the two houses. has stimulated
some activity In textiles.
Recovery in the iron market is hin
dered by tbe trouble in the ooke region,
where in any of the new eolorsn bunds
have quit and gone back to the south,
and the strikers have ducided to con
tinue tbe struggle.
Tbe volume of domsstlo business re
flected by exchanges through clearing
houses Is 22 6 par cent, less than last
y'ir, and 23 8. per cent, less than in
1893 improvemedt however, onnnot
presede but must follow recovery in
manufactures. The railroads earning
reported for July are 26 6 per cent, less
than last your, and partly because of
the sharp decline a year ago, the de
crease for the latest week was only 13 1
per oont. The tonnage east bound
from Chicago has nearly reeovered its
former magnitude.
Gold exports and other discourag
ing features depressed the average
prioe of stocks 40 cents per share,
while legislative rumors helped to lift
trust stocks 01 cents per share.
Commercial liabilities thns far re
ported in failures during July
amounted to $9 016,778, of whlob
$4,500,220 were ot maufuaoturing and
$4 231,470 of trading concerns.jand the
decrease of tbe month, though great in
comparison with lust year, is hardly as
muoh as has been expectea. The fail
ure! this week bsve been 219 in the
United States against 436 last year,
and 44 in Canada against 84 last year.

An Agreement Said to Have Been Reached
bj tbe Confcrrees.
Four Members of the Conference
Announce That the Tariff Deadlock
Has Been Broken It Is Predicted
That the President Will Sign the Bill
Within Ten Days The Adjustment
Necessary for Public Good Louis
iana Senators.
Washington, Aug. 8.
n FTER the meeting of the cabinet
Ml today four members announced
each to a different person that
Uu an agreement had been reached
by the senate and bouse conferees on
the tariff bill. Tbe basis of agreement
was not disclcstd. but one of the most
distinguished mumpers of the cabinet
said to a United Press reporter: "You
can announce tbat the president will
sign the tariff bill within ten days."
United Press bulletins announcing a
tariff adjustment spread rapiJly
through the eity and caused much ex
citement. No one of the cabinet offi
cers who spoke of the settlement would
divulge tbe terms, but the inference
was strongly conveyed that the senate
bill with not very material conces
sions Is the basis of the agree
ment. Tbe paramouut reasons
that seem to have brought abont
an adjustment was stated to be the ab
solute neceesity fur the cessation of the
period of uncertainty in order tbat gov
ernment finance might recuperate, gold
exports stop, and the oountry be given
an opportunity to resume business
which has ulmost come to a standstill
because of tbe long drawn out delay.
From other sources it is learned that
the sugar schedule that will be agreed
to and which has been oooeptod by the
house oonferrees is as follows:
Forty per cent ad valorem on all
raw sugar and tbe same amount on all
refined sugar, the doty to be collected,
however, on the basis of tbe saccharine
strength. In addition to this there is
to be a differential to the refiner of
one-fifth of a cent a pound and a dis
criminating duty against those coun
tries that pay an export bounty on re
Hned sugar equlvallnt to the bounty
paid. It Is understood tbat tbe govern
ment will also regulate in some way
the prioes of foreign sugars so as to
prevent any attempt to juggle with the
It is said tonight tbat the Louis
iana senators und Messrs. Allen
and Eyle, the latter representing the
beet sugar iudnstry, will not accept
tbe proposed schedule. It this be true,
it is not apparent how the Democrats
expect to pass the bill. There is no
provision la the schedule for the
bounty for 1894 and the Louisiana sen
ators have declared tbat unless this
bounty is put in tbe bill tbey cannot
snpport it. It Is probable tbat by to
morrow night tbe situation will have
crystalized into something tangible and
tbat tbe outcome will be known with
some degree of defiulteness,
