came to Sacramento on business, when
he was enticed into the Mobile house, a
resort kept by a notorious woman named
Kate Cooper. The Strybe brothers gave
him a drink of whisky, in which tbey
had placed morphine for the purpose of

St. I'ltTßrtHniriiG, June 21.—While the
ancient church of Romano at Boriso
glebsk waa crowded with pilgrims who
came to take part in the annual church
procession, a panic was caused by a false
alarm of fire which had been raised by
thieves in order to facilitate their opera
tions. When tne firemen arrived they
found the door locked. Breaking in
they witnessed a fearful sight. In the
mad rush for exit hundreds were
knocked down and trampled on while
others were being suffocated. The
boiließ of 12(1 women and 10 men were
taken from the church. Nor was this
the total number of vfctime, as several
other persons were killed and 20 fatally
injured by leaping from the windows 30
feet from the gronnd.
Fatal Itaaaltft of Wednesday Nlghte's Kx
Madrid, Jane 2L.—The gieatest ex
citement prevails as the result of the
dynamite explosion near the house of
ex-Pritoo Minister Castillo, last night.
In addition to the damage already re
ported and the loss of life and personal
injuries, the Bhock partly wrecked a
building near by in which a circus per
formance was in progress, causing a
panic. A grandson of the Marquis of
liav.ina, president of the senate was hit
by a piece ol falling ceiling and so badly
hurt tnat he will die, A son of
trie matquis of Getadeliat was trampled
to death by the panic-stricken throng.
Seven others W3re seriously hurt in the
crush. A larue number were leBB eeri
ously hurt. It is believed the explosion
was the work of Barcelona dynamiters,
the revolutioniats there being very
active ai late.
A nnm'er of arrests wfil he made, it
ib said, cfviell:/among the men employed
in printir g offices devoted to the publi
cation of anarchistic documents. Many
of those closed a year ago, during the
anarchist troubles, have been reopened,
and have flooded the indnetrial sections
with blood and fire literature.
It is learned that prior to tbe explo
sion, a gentleman and two workmen
were seen near the house of Castillo.
The gentleman disappeared a few min
ntes before the explosion occurred. It
in believed the workman killed by the
explosion carried a number of bombs
charged with dynamite and large bullets,
and tbat it wae tbe intention to dis
tribute them in various parts of the city.'
That the bombs contained ballets is evi
denced by the fact that several build
ings in the vicinity show where
the load flattened itself against
toe walls. It is conjectured
that the fuse on the bomb that tirst ex
ploded burned much more rapidly than
the conspirators calculated, and that
the shocx of the explosion caused tbe
bombs carried by the workman to ex
plode, blowing his body into fragments.
Tho dead man waa a printer. Anar
chist documents belonging to a well
known anarchist, Ernesto Alvarez, were
found in hie pocket. It is believed the
victim of his own diabolical designs
was none other than this foe of law
and order. A letter dated Barcelona
was aleo found, advieing the recipient to
use tbe utmost cautiou in carrying ont
tbe plana entrusted to him. Alvarez
waa previously arrested for connection

THE DEPARTING GUEST.
The Duke or Veragua Thanks the Ma-
tlon for Ita Hospitality.
New York, June 21.—The duke of
Veragua has written a letter to Secre
tary Gresham, taking leave of the gov
ernment and requesting that the pro
found and sincere gratitude of his fam
ily and himself, for the honor and hos
pitality extended to them, be conveyed
to the congress and the people of the
United States. The duke alludes to the
fact that only once before the United
States honored a citizen of another
nation, and rejoiced that in this
way hia name was linked with
that of La Fayette. He pays a tribute
of admiration to the grandeur, progress
and prosperity of the United States, and
for the intelligence, enterprise and patri
otism of the people. He commends tbe
exposition at Chicago as the greatest
triumph of the civilization of the nine
teenth century, and tenders to the expo
sition officials the heartiest congratula
tions and thanks. In closing, the duke
requests Gresham to express to the pres
ident his inability to offer thanks in per
son and pay his farewell respects to the
Secretary Gresham says in reply:
"The gratification which the govern
ment and people of tbe United States
justly feel at being able to welcome as
the guest of the nation, one whose name
and blood today represents the great
admiral to whose perseverance and
dauntless faith the discovery of onr new
world is dne, found a fitting expression
in the cordial welcome extended to yon,
and your visit to onr shores will ever
remain prominently associated with the

Judge Grant Decides That the Proceed
ings Are Unconstitutional,
Woodland, June 21.—Judge Grant
has prepared and will tomorrow file his
decision in tbe state capital removal
case of Livermore vs. Secretary of State
Waite. His judgment is in favor of Liv
eynore, and therefore of Sacramento.
The plaintiff sought to restrain the sec
retary of state from printing the state
capital resolution on the regular ballots,
to be voted on at the next regular
election, on the ground of irregularity
and nnconstitutionality. The decision
tarns upon the point that the action of
tbe legislature is at variance with tbe
constitution. A constitutional amend
ment, to be regularly framed and pre
sented to the people for their ratification
or rejection, should be by a bill regularly
introduced and passed by the assembly
and senate, and not by a concurrent res
olution. The resolution passed by the
late legislature for tbe removal of the
state capital to San Jose is, therefore,
void, in the opinion of Judge Grant, and
he so decides. This finding will be filed
in the superior court in Sacramento to
mo.rtm. it *mTto ii&tibt be appealed
to the supreme court.
LONG ISLAND DISASTER.

Judge Qnimby of Utica, N. V., who bad

said be was a doctor and going to take
Quimby to the Norwegian hospital. He
never arrived there, and the coroner is
trying to find the body. William B.
Hntchinson of Chicago, who was killed,
had several thousand dollars in his
possession, but when his body reached
the morgue, only $1.25 was found.

By the Associated Press.
Mbnlo Park, CaL, Juno 51.—The
first tidings of Senator Stanford's death,
which reached the outside world were
sent by the Associated Press correspond
ent from the little town of Menlo, bat ■
few minutes after it was discovered that
the senator had breathed his last. Owing
to the lateness of the hoar and meager
telegraphic facilities, it was impossible
to obtain bat few details last night.
The friends of Senator Stanford'!
family received the sad news through
the press this morning. At 4:24 a
special train bearing; Charles Lathrop,
Mrs. Stanford's brother, left San Fran
cisco, arriving here at 5:30. A carriage
awaited him at the station, and he waa
driven rapidly to the Stanford residence,
which is situated about a mile and a
half from the station.
FRIENDS HASTEN TO MENLO PARK.
From an early hour this morning tele
graphic messages of sympathy poured
in upon Mrs. Stanford, and each incom
ing train was filled with personal friends,
Southern Pacific i ail way officials and
those who had been intimately associ
ated with the senator in hie many
affairs. Five Southern Pacific officials
were among those who arrived on the
10:40 train from San FraAcisco. General
Manager A. N. Towne, J. A. Fillmore,
H. E. Huntington, Auditor and Con
troller Lansing and Mr. Scbwerin.
Stephen Gage, who also came on an
early train. He learned first of Senator
Stanford's death from the newpapers.
Charles Crocker, who received a tele
gram early thia morning, came on an
early train with Rev. Foute, of Grace
chnrch. I. M. Doggett, superintendent
of the mint, was also among the'frienda
at Palo Alto.
Mr. Hnntinston eaid in reply to an
inquiry that since the senator's severe
attack in Washington his death had
baen among the probabilities of each
day, although it was tbonght by all his
friends that he might survive for years.
Xt was known that he would never again
resume his activity in railway affairs,
and it was known that he would resign
bis seat iv the United States senate, un
less the Republican party needed biro.
The railway officials agreed that the
death of Senator Stanford will have little
effect on the policy of tbe administration
of the affairs of the railway company.
n. E. HUNTINGTON'S STATEMENT.
"While the death of Senator Stanford
came as a surprise to me, I must say it
was not unexpected," said Mr. Hunt
ington. "We had known for months
that his end wag near, but are rather
shocked with the suddenness of the
news. The first news we received waa
tbrongh the papers. Later telegrams
affirmed tbe sad tidings. I do not an
ticipate that the death of Senator
Stanford will have any direct
effect on the conduct of the affairs of the
Southern Pacific company, for since his
retirement from the presidency he haa
taken very little interest in the corpora
tion's business. He was too ill or too
engrossed with political affairs, and
gladly let those at the helm assume the
responsibility. In fact I think that hia
retirement came as a relief. I know
nothing of the senator's will. I am at
sea regarding the disposition he haa
made of his railroad shares. It matters
not, however, how he has disposed of
his stock, for the controlling interest
will remain where it is at present."
He Had Long; Been Ailing; bat Hoped for
Mbnlo Park, Cal., Jane 21.—For sev
eral weeks Senator Stanford bad been
very ill. Hia bearing waa very mncb
affected, and when a reporter called on
him a week ago he was hardly able to
move abont without assistance. He
then eaid be waa the victim of goat, and
that by taking the hot water care he
would soon be all right. For breakfast,
lnnch and dinner he took a large cup of
hot water and some meat, but no vege
tables were allowed him. At that time
he did not anticipate anything seriona
and he talked confidently about the
plans he had in view for the future.
Not tbe slightest thought of hia being
in a precarious condition had entered
his mind, and neither Mre. Stanford
nor his private secretary, Mr. Nash, had
any idea tbat hia illness was dangerous.
JOVIAL TO THE LAST.
The Senator himself felt jovial and
told how he enjoyed hia dinners, and
hia utterances were endorsed by hia
fie eaid he did not intend to return to
Washington unless the Republican party
needed him in Congress, and there is no
doubt tbat he wcvtd-bave resigned hia
seat in the United States Senate before
long. He expressed a desire to live at
•east 10 years longer so that he would
be able to bring his university at Palo
Alto into prominence among the educa
tional institutions of this country.
HAD NO THOUGHT CC DEATH.
There was certainly no thought of his
early deatn in Ac Senator's mind when
he sat by his fireside just a week r.go
last Sunday, and discusied the plans he
had iv his mind for the future.
"I am feeling v»ry well," he eaid at
that time, ''and »».ih proper care I hope
to live at icejt 10 years longer, though I
! am OH years old."
