charge in his chest thus averting it from the two rulers On Way to Palace The explosion occured just as the royal about the palace The f had been diverted from Arsenal street to Mayoi street owing to popular de- sires The procession had just ed through Mayor street and was about to turn into the ing to the palace when the explosion shook the buildings in the vicinity stunning a number of people and throwing the cortege into 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 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 Queen Victoria out of the riage They then entered another coach and were driven swiftly to the palace All this happened so quickly that pepple away from were not the tragedy that had been enacted and continued to acclaim their sovereign Soon however there appeared the carriage empty with two horses ing- others spattered with blood several of them bleeding from their wounds Grooms and 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 that the 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 proaching streets Bodies were wrapped in blankets and moved to ters while the wounded were taken to hospitals in ambulances The 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 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 private secretary cording to an official statement it is not known whether one or more bomba wore The statement con- that it is impossible to tain at present the author of the out rage though it is known that a Jonian 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 polished steel a half centimetre thick The house from which it according to some reports belongs to the 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 went to the royal palace where he was assured that the king and queen were very tranquil considering their narrow escape The Duke of 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 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 1905 an anarchist threw a bomb at the royal carriage It struck a trooper of the 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 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 embassy and about a of a mile from tlie royal palace L- Many Arrests Made Many arrests have been made among them Manuel Duran a 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 away It had been rumored that King 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 ten although it was to have ed a period of unprecedented ties Some of the wedding features however were such as to fix selves indelibly upon the minds of the spectators One of the prettiest sights was the 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 led to fear an inopportune event The king twice arose on the throne and gazed fastly toward the door Hardly an arm's length away was the American special envoy Frederick W ridge who through chance or de- sign most favorable sition of the assemblage With him was General the French envoy and side of him the envoy of Morocco a huge swathed in white a 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 fonso embraced his bride and her mother This glimpse of domestic derness as well as the democratic touch given by the presence of many in the galleries who were there by the king's request made the scene an effective one to which a sequel quickly succeeded BURNED BY HIS PLAYMATES claims that since then steps have been taken to give certain a preference in matter of

com- it was arranged to construct a building as au annex to he publishing plant of the Gospel senger at Elgin Illinois And still the pot Thus is the condition of politics in West described The 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 er J E C D Kern Cal Kingsley Ben Rodamar and a 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 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 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 Waterloo promises to be the scene of a political such as 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 with sale The Cummins people had a likeness of the governor with his platform while the Perkins crowd had a larger with the platform and the list of delegates and 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 gates to the county convention are said to be Cummins men They are as Harvey Hess Simon Miller Herbert and E ny Barrel Must Be Here That which everybody 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 swear by the great horn spoons it is the Progressives for whom cial have arrived while the progressives are quite 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 tlemen modestly deny the soft im- but wink the other eye and go out to beat the bushes and garner recruits from the hedges and byways The democrats are ed to be good natured and concede that both are for once confining selves to statements of That the wheels and bearings of local are being greased will admit of no contradiction The long green is in evidence also its effect Both sides have money The Perkins lows have a long lead and unless all signs are deceptive they are going to make themselves felt The played a strong card yesterday They captured the and clerks of the primary at 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 ents would at no chicanery to win even though they hud to re- sort to methods that

a sextet of Cummins patriots busy explaining that his jesty was a flower of virtue compared to the editor of the Sioux City 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 day morning Mr Baily 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 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 lows had scarcely recovered from the hysterics of fright when a deputy pharmacy commissioner from ster City lit at the Irving He ly admitted he had come to Waterloo to exert a modest influence for mins Therefore he was looked upon with suspicion and it was only by great persuasion that Call Kingsley was restrained from sicking his dog Mickey the upon him An examination showed that he had come unarmed and as his 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 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 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 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 bune that Mr Miller had written the appeal in its entirety a few

the governor or with ulterior motives for the undoing of Editor Perkins was not learned 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
