Attempt to Assassinate in King Alfonso and His Loss' of at Least Sixteen Lives." THROWN AT ROYAL CARRIAGE King and Queen Narrowly Escape Death in Coftage After Their Wedding. [By Associated Press.] Madrid, May rejoicings over the marriage of King Alfonso and Princess Victoria had a terribly dramatic sequel at this after- noon as a bomb thrown from an up- per window exploded with loud effect near the coach occupied -by the king ana queen. Providentially King Al- fonso and Queen Victoria escaped by an electric wire deflecting the bomb, but at letist sixteen persons, most of them being of the personal and mili- tary escort and other spectators were killed. Many others were injured. The dead are: i, Captain Barrosa, commanding part of the king's escort. Lieut." Reysient." Lieut. Prendergast and six soldiers. Marquise of Golosa and her daugh- ter. Don Antonio Oalvo and his neice, aged G years. Jose Sola, seventy years of age. Louis Fonseea. One royal groom who was leading a horse drawing the coach carrying the king and queen. Several of those killed were stand- ing on the balcony, of the bouse from .which the bomb was thrown. Many soldiers of tlie escort were thrown from horses and injur- ed, fragments of the bomb struck a number of people in the crowd. The horse of one of the re- publican guards belonging to the es- cort received the full force of the charge in his chest, thus averting it from the two rulers. On Way to Palace. The explosion occured just as the royal about, to-enter the palace. .The rout.eo f the'cortege had been diverted from Arsenal street to Mayoi' street owing to popular de- sires. 'The 'procession had just pass{ ed through Mayor street and was about to turn into the esplande lead- ing to the palace when the explosion shook the buildings in" the vicinity, stunning .'a large- number of people and throwing the cortege into inex- tricable confusion. The royal coach was brought to a sudden stop by the shock, officers and soldiers of the cort falling to the ground about tlie equerry and horses that had been kill- ed. The screams of the terrified multitude mingled with the groans 'of the dying. It. was immediately seen that the royal coach was intact. 'King Alfonso immediately alighted and as- sisted Queen Victoria out of the car- riage. They then entered another coach and were driven swiftly to the palace. All this happened so quickly that pepple away from .the'immediate vic- inity were not aware-of the tragedy, that had been enacted and continued to acclaim their sovereign. Soon, however, there appeared the -royal carriage empty with two horses miss- ing- aiid others spattered with .blood, several of them bleeding from their wounds. Grooms and drivers'looked deathly'pale In-their- spangled uni- forms. .Then came a boy shouting that a bomb had been thrown at the king, The appearance of the king and queen in the coach brought out delirious ovations as the fact was recogr.lzed that the -sovereigns had been spared. Horrible Spectacle. Meantime the scene of the tragedy presented a horrible spectacle, with horses and men lying' about literally torn to pieces. Intense excitement prevailed, the mob invading the streets, while the guards maintain order and block the ap-' proaching streets. Bodies were wrapped in blankets and moved to lit- ters while the wounded were taken to hospitals in ambulances. The pave- ment was literally covered with blood and the upper stories of the buildings nearest were spattered with it. The place from which the bomb was is a boarding house. The chamber from which the missile was hurled was taken: May 22nd by a man from Baiv celona giving the name of Morale, and when the police surrounded the house, the man attempted to flee, but was captured. Another man escaped over the roof of houses. One of the injured proved to be a son-in-law of. Premier Moret's private secretary. Ac- cording to an official statement, it is not known whether one or more bomba wore tin-own. The statement con- tinues that it is impossible to ascer- tain at present the author of the out; rage, though it is known that a Cata- Jonian n'umed Manuel Duran took an apartment in the house from 'which the bomb was thrown on May 22nd..'' ;From the Queen's House. The bomb, which was concealed in a bouquet, was.of polished steel, a half centimetre thick. The house from which it was.thrown, according to some reports, belongs to the queen'o mother, having boon bequeathed to her by a philanthropist and .being the' only house she owns in Madrid. The house is opposite the church of the Sacrament and the captain general's residence. Wires of the Scene. .Frederick Whitridge, the American special envoy, cabled the president at 4 o'clock this afternoon, giving the details .concerning the attempt on the life of the king and queen. Later in the day.yWhitridge went to the royal palace, where he was assured that the king and queen were very tranquil, considering their narrow escape. The Duke of Settomayor was entering the palace at the time Whitridge was there showing that his wounds are not serious. Whitridge also called at the foreign office and on behalf of. the United State's expressed profound sym- pathy with the Spanish sovereigns and their people. Curious Incident. As a curious coincidence, it is just a year ago today that the bomb was thrown at King Alfonso in Paris. As the king, accompanied by President Loubet, was driving away from the gala performance at the opera, May 31st, 1905, an anarchist threw a bomb at the royal, carriage. It struck a trooper of the cuirrassier escort on the shoulder, fell to the ground and exploded without Injury to the Icing or president, who continued their drive to Palais D'Orsay. People are Indignant. The indignation of the people over the outrage was very great. Some French detectives were arrested be- cause they had a foreign appearance. After the outrage, the visitors' book was .opened at the palace and it was signed during the afternoon by the foreign princes, envoys, diplomats, ministers and officials oi all ranks. It is stated that on the arrival at the royal palace, the king and queen were both in tears. They were quickly sur- rounded by foreign princes, each anxious to show sympathy and 'offer congratulations on thir escape. From 2 .until G o'clock in the evening, it. was impossible for any brie to get near the' house from which the bomb was thrown. The house is close to thejtal- ia'n embassy, and .about a :quarter of a mile from' tlie 'royal 'palace; L- Many Arrests Made. '.Many arrests have been made, among them Manuel Duran, a Catelo- nian, who is believed to have been the principal conspirator. It is said that immediately on the Duran seized and hurried down stairs. As he reached the street, men flung themselves upon him shouting, "kill the assassin." "The mounted guard pressed around and took-him away. It had been rumored that King Al- fonso a few days ago received an anonymous warning of an intended outrage, but the authorities deny this. The Wedding. The tragic event of this afternoon, and the narrow margin by which King Alfonso and the new queen of Spain escaped death caused the brilliancy of the wedding temporarily to be forgot- ten, although it was to have inaugurat- ed a period of unprecedented festivi- ties. .Some of the wedding features, however', were such as to fix them- selves indelibly upon the minds of the spectators.' One of "the prettiest sights was the tiny.Prince Altonso, Cue actual heir to the throne, who accompanied the king. The little orphan of the Princess of Asturias, was clad in knickerbockers of white silk and reached only to the king's waist. King Alfonso, reached the altar long before Princess Victoria. The lengthy wait which ensxied led maiiy to fear an inopportune event. The king twice arose on the throne and gazed stead: fastly toward the door. Hardly an arm's length away, was the American special envoy, Frederick W. Whit- ridge, who, through chance or de- sign, occupied..the most favorable po- sition of any'in the assemblage. With him was General Dalztein, the French envoy, and. ;alpng side of him the envoy of Morocco, a huge swathed in white, and'next a Chi- nese' minister. Republican simplicity never was more strikingly exemplified. European courts were .represented by princes, most of them heirs to thrones, while France, the United States, and the south and Central American re- publics stood out with plain envoys. As the ceremony closed, King- Al- fonso embraced his bride and her mother. This glimpse of domestic ten- derness, 'as well as the democratic touch given by the presence of many poor'people in the galleries, who were there by the king's request, made the scene an effective one to which a mel- ancholy sequel quickly succeeded. BURNED BY HIS PLAYMATES. itlon claims that since then steps have been taken to give certain cred- itors a preference in. matter of pay- ments. The_ petition is filed on part of a number'of farmers who furnished the beets to the factory and the Union Pacific railroad which holds claim for freight.

Of the amendments considered the senate had receded on but three while the house conferees have ac- cepted thirty-nine. Those on 'which the senate receded are .all of minor importance and are regarded as not affecting the bill in any way. The amendments still in dispute are the express company amendment, those relating to oil and the owner- ship of producing properties by com- mon carriers, the anti-pass" amend- ment, the sleeping, car, provision; "Jim Crow" -cars, bill pf. lading provision, retention or .rejection pf 'w.ords "in its "fairly.'remun- erative" and the: 'side track ..amend- ment.

The amendment is to be reported exactly as it was introduced a year ago by Foraker in the senate.

At that time the vote will be taken for the location of the capi- tal. Wants Easier Bill. Washington. May tive 'Crumpacker of Indiana' introduc- ed a bill today as a substitute for the Beveridge meat inspection amend- ment placed on the agricultural bill in the senate. The bill defines the authority which may be vested in the seci-etfj'y of agriculture and lifts its authority so as not to conflict with the police powers of the state. In accomplishing adequate inspection with this restriction, provision is made whereby the secretary of agri- culture may accept the inspection of state inspectors as to the sanitary condition of packing houses. Where the inspection is made on the part .of packers, which makes the state in- spection inadequate, the secretary 'of agriculture is authorized .to stop all meat products at th'e state lines and make .a thorough inspection. Where the state inspection is accepted by the secretary this federal inspection in transit will not be made. Certain labels and tags to denote the charac- ter of state inspection are provided for. CrumpackfM' believes the Beveridge amendment, in authorizing the feder- al inspection of packing houss Is a violation of the police of a state and that all rulings sustain this position. Edward Cudnhy, hoad of the Cudahy Packing Company of Om- aha, hns written-the members of the Nebraska delegation in congress pro- testing against the Bevertdgc meat inspection anuMUlmcnf to the agricul- tural appropriation bill. 'He objects to the provision compelling packers to pay for iuspectlon and complains that the bill is too drastic in every particular. Senate Is Busy. The senate today passed tho Knox immunity and omnibus lighthouse bill, with practically no debate pass- ed the military academy bill and was only prevented from passing the em- ployers liability bill by a motion to go into executive session. Most of the afternoon was devoted'to consid- eration in the executive session of the nomination of Judge James Wicker- sham 'to judge of the United States circuit court for the district of Alas- ka, but he was not confirmed. Charges against him, which have prevented confirmation for three years were urged strongly by Senators McCum- ber and .Hansbrough, Nelson, Teller, Pettus and a number of others. He was defended by Senators Fcraker, Dollingham, Bailey, Culberson and others. No vote was had, nor did it appear one is imminent. He is now serving on recess appointment. Murphy Has Bill. Washington, May tive Murphy of Missouri, introduced a bill today 'to provide for the free expression of representatives in con- gress on bills, measures, resolutions and rules, and for punishment for in- terferring therein." The bill- makes it a felony, punishable by two years im- prisonment and disqualification to hold any office of profit or trust for any representative or speaker in congress to promise to support or in- fluence the passage of any bill.

Officers are Chosen at the Springfield [By Associated Press.] Springfield, 111., May mem- bers of the various standing commit- tess of the German Baptist Brethren held their first meeting today and elected F. Shanger of South" Band. Ind., moderator to succeed Elder John Zuck of Clarence, Iowa; H. C. Early of Reading, clerk; I. B. Trout oC Elgin, writing clerk. At a meeting of the building com- mittee, it was arranged to construct a building as au annex to (he publishing plant of the Gospel Mes- senger at Elgin, Illinois. And still the pot boils! Thus, is the condition of politics in West iWaterloo described. The var- ious ingredients were stirred with a good big political club and with the hot fire which was under the bowl all day yesterday, the mess into which the game has at last arrived boiled and. bubbled, until a late hour last night. All day the members of each division of the party were chasing up and down the street after some "victim." John Hartman, C. D. Beck- er, J. E. Bragdpn, C. D. Kern, Cal. Kingsley, Ben Rodamar, and a num- ber of others were doing "personal work" and each had a "favorable" re- port to giye when the committees met last night. Both factions of the republican party had a "meeting" last evening. The Perkins "crowd" met somewhere, and it can be said to their credit that they eluded the most vigilant wnteh. A "crowd" was in the lobby of the Irving house, another was to be found in. Henderson's, but the Leavitt Johnson bank had been deserted, the Perkins people fully realizing that it was not a good place to meet. They met, however, a fact evidenced by the crowd of business men who have joined the ranks of the who were to be seen on the streets. Chet. Kern's office and Dr. Power's compartments in the Miller building were the favorite rendesvouz for the Cummins crowd and in each place, the lights burned until a late hour. The Rubicon has been crossed and the bridge has been destroyed and it now is up to the two factions to fight. This, they are both, determined to do. Today is the last day and.West Waterloo promises to be the 'scene of a political such as -it has not seen in a generation. Every man is being brought into line on both sides and Hie Perkins at last com- ing out in the open, are on the streets in open warfare. Yesterday the west side stores and business offices were literally show- ei'sd with "sale The Cummins people had a likeness of the governor with his platform while the Perkins "crowd" had a larger bill, with the platform and the list of delegates and alteranates. The bills were read with perceptible interest by the people and discussions throughout that section of the city were frequent. battle wil be fought and won this evening and while the Cummins people seemingly have a cinch on the caucus, this election, like others in the past, may prove a surprise and the Perkins followers may have a single trump up their sleeVe, which they can play, which will land them the victory. Orange Township Caucus. Orange township caucus was held last evening and a great fight was had. It is said that' the caucus was about divided. The Cummins men were said to have gained control, however, and the nominees for dele- gates to the county convention are said to 'be Cummins men. They are as follows: Harvey Hess. Simon Miller, Herbert and E. Glen- ny. Barrel Must Be Here. That which everybody aflirms must be true. Measured by this standard there is no doubt that a very fat "wad" has arrived in town. The only division of sentiment is with regard to who has it. The "Standpatters" swear by' the great horn spoons it is the "Progressives" for whom finan- cial re-inforcements have arrived, while the '''progressives" are quite ve- hement in asseverating that the "role" is railroad boodle furnished by J. Blythe through Ed. Hunter, of Des Moines for disbursement by Al. Boehmler, of Cedar Falls, and George Lichty, of this city. Both these gen- tlemen modestly deny the soft im- peachment, but wink the other eye and go out to beat the bushes and garner recruits from the hedges and byways. The democrats are dispos- ed to be good natured and concede that both are for once confining them- selves to statements of That, the wheels and bearings of local pol- ities' are being greased will admit of no contradiction. The "long green" is in evidence; also its effect. Both sides have money. The Perkins fel- lows have a long lead, and unless all signs are deceptive they are going to make themselves felt. The "Standpatters" played a strong card yesterday. They captured the judge's and clerks of the primary at Cedivr Falls and if the other side wins It will be with clubs and axes for trumps. Last night the indications wore that there would be a furniture breaking time at Cedar Falls, this evening. The Cummins following were apprehensive' that their oppon- ents would hestitate at. no chicanery to win, even though they hud to re- sort to methods that would make train robbery respectable by compar- ison. Scouring the Woods. Both sides wore very activo- in Wa- terloo yesterday.

Close upon their heels was John Hartman and a sextet of Cummins patriots busy explaining that his santanic jesty was a flower of virtue compared to the editor of the Sioux City Jour- nal. These latter portrayed the evils of railroad domination of the party and showed the state was headed for the demnition bowwows if he should; capture the primaries today. It so happened that W. H. Baily, au eminent attorney from Des Moines, strayed into the city, early yester- day morning. Mr. Baily inscribed- his full name and place of residence upon the register at the Irving house. That he was from Des Moines was sufficient to set tongues wagging. ,He was set down at once as an emissary of the governor, and kept under sur- veillance until noon, when alarm gave way to a sigh of relief. Mr. Baily was found to have come hither to plead a case for a client before the district court. But the Perkins fel- lows had scarcely recovered, from .the hysterics of fright, when' a deputy pharmacy commissioner from Web- ster City "lit" at the Irving. He frank- ly admitted he had come to Waterloo to exert a modest influence for Cum- mins. Therefore he was looked upon with suspicion, and it was only by great persuasion that Call Kingsley was restrained from "sicking" his Irisn dog, "Mickey, the upon him. An examination showed that he had come unarmed and as his mis- sion appeared to be peaceful, he .was permitted to roam about unmolested. Two' traveling' men, being put "wise to the loudly announced that they were in town to do "strong arm" -work for Perkins. Thereafter John Hartman went" about attended by his vicious dog, Blucher, while Chet Kern fortified himself with a blank injunction to serve at a mo- ment's notice. Pathetic Incident. A pathetic incident in was the fact that the appeal to re- publicans of the county, issued by the Perkins following yesterday, had been written by B. G. Miller, .whose death from a stroke of apoplexy oc- curred Wednesday evening, only a few hours after he had completed, the work. It was his last call to his. republican comrades. It was stated to a representative of the Times-Tri- bune that Mr. Miller had written the appeal in its entirety a few hours pre- ceding the summons that closed his life. Editor Witt, of Shell Rock, a dis- tant relative of the famous Russian, winged his flight to Waterloo yester- day. Whether he came with full de- signs against the governor or with ulterior motives for the undoing of Editor Perkins, was not learned. Edi-. tor Witte moved about a mood of deep mystery. Possibly will lift the veil today and disclose where "he is at." The friends of the governor were disposed to regard, him with lively suspicion. This ply he was an enemy bearing Greek gifts. While there is room for the best information last night, was that the having an excellent organization, would win in the contest at the primaries in West Waterloo, this evening. The Perkins crowd were not at all inclined to make any concessions, but there was an air of confidence about the enemy that greatly disturbed them. New Man Chosen by the New York Mutual Life Insurance Company. [By Associated New York, May a meeting today of the trustees of the Mutual Life Insurance company it. was an- nounced that William Stevenson has been elected comptroller. New committees made up almost exclusively of men who controlled the corapany under the McCurdy regime, wej-e elected. President Peabody announced .that, an investigation is being made re- garding the recent charges of corrup- tion in the company's supply depart- ment.
