Madrid, Aug. 17. The court announced
Its decision at Vergara yesterday in the
case of Angiolli (alias Gulli) who as
sassinated Canovas del Castillo. About
:00 persons were present at the trial.
The vicinity of the prison was almost
deserted, the public being apparently in
different in view of the certainty that
he death penalty would follow the
court-martial. Angiolli, heavily man
acled, sat between two gen d'armea and
immediately in front of his judges. Tha
president of the court read the declar
ations of eye-witnesses, after which the
written statement of the prisoner was
read by the clerk of the court.
How He Fell Into Anarchist Ways.
Angiclli, in the course of the state
ment, said that he left Fosriria in Orln-
er, 1SS5. and went to Marseilles and
Barcelona, where he took the name of
o?e Santos. At first he had no thought
of becoming an anarchist, but while at
Ccririna h-e began to be interested in
anarchist doctrines. He then returned
Marseilles, and after his exnulsion
from that city he went to Belgium and
Ixindon, where he spent most cf his time
n the society of anarchists. When the
xecution took place at Barcelona on
May 4 of five at the anarchists convicted
cf participation in the bomb outrage at
the feast of Corpus Christi he conceived
ho idea cf assassinatineCanovns VI.
ut seeklr.g an accomplice he proceeded
to Srain and carried out the resolution.
Defense Makes the Insanity Flea.
The public prosecutor described the
crime as "premeditated murder" and
sked the court te impose the death pen
ny, lieutenant Gorria. whom the
ourt hu-d assigned as counsel to defend
ngiolli, urged that the prisoner was
demented at the time of the shooting.
nd made a strong appeal to the benevo
lence of the judges. While his counsel
was- presenting this plea Angiolli listen
ed in silence. Then he asked permission
o speak for himself, which was-cranted.
He thanked lieutenant Gorria for his
fforts, and denied that he had any ac
complices, e.r that he was an accomplice
t tnf.se who committed the boir.bthrow-
ing outrage at Barcelona, or that he had
participated in secret gatherings of an
archltst. When he began to discuss an
archist theories the presid'-nt of the
court interrupted him and threatened to
stop him if he pursued that line of re
mark or touched upon any matters not
connected with the trial.
Wanted to Justify His Crime.
Angiolli iiersisted in speaking cf poli
tics and of the wars in Cuba ar.cl the
Philippines. The president said: "All
tnii nas r.otning to ao with your
"I must justify my-
The president retorted: "That is no
Justification. Moreover, you can con
vince nobody In that-way."
Angiolli began again, but the presi
dent declared the trial ended and or
dered the court room cleared. After the
prisoner had been conducted to his cell
the judges deliberated for an hour and
then r.nrounced the sentence of the
court, which was that Angiolli be gar
roted within the prison walls.

Paris, Aug. 17. Prinee Henri of Or

part of the right side of the abdomen
Sunday morning in the duel fought with
the Count of Turin, nephew of the king
of Italy, passed a quiet night. His con
dition is now considered by his physi
cians to be satisfactory. General Al-
bertcne. the Italian officer who had
challenged Prince Henri, but w ao gaye
way to the Count of Turin, has with
drawn his challenge. Paris is intense
ly excited over the dutd. The sale of
rapers on the boulevards was almost
unprecedented, while on all sides knots
of Parisians, gesticulating with even
more than customary energy, were dis
cussing, almost quarreling, over the en
Although the republicans would fain
console themselves with the refiertiou
that Prince Henri's overthrow has killed
Orleansism for a generation, French
pride, irrespective of party, is deeply
hurt by the Italian prinoe's victory.
Happily the mood of the Parisian
changes quickly and often, for if th.?
present temper were to last Internation
al complications would be unavoidable.
The French anger is further stimulated
by persistent reports that Prince Henri
was inferior to his opponent in nerve
more than in wordsmanshlp, and was
completely overborne by the violent,
reckless onslaught of the Count of
