here that T.uigi Borvanii, the religious fa
natic who threw a paper bag filled with
earth at the kiuy of Italy Saturday near
the Villa Borybese.hns beeu suffering from
mental deran;-:iient and that some mem
bers of his family have occasionally shown
symptoms of the same disorder. The
Villa Uorgbrse was being opened for the
public exhibition now being given in aid
of the Socicta PantaAleghiri. The weath
er was magnificent and there was a large
number of njirctators. About 5 o'clock the
Ling went as usual for a drive in the
neighborhood of the villa, accompanied
only by one aid -de-tamp. Just as the car
riage was p.iNMnu the front of the villa a
fellow who lookt-ti like a working mason
drew from the inside of his coat a wrapped
np paper and dashed it against the royal

at the villa ran to the spot and took the
man into custody. The prisoner strug

On arriving at the police station the pris

the pope. Boreardi had traveled half around
the world and had been a long time in
America, from n hence he had but lately
returned. He said: -I am a fervent' Cath

tils Physicians Admit That They Do Not
- New York, March 27. Among medical
men here t he death of Coloner- Shepard is
the talk of the day. His physician. Dr.
M 'Jj&ne and Dr. McBurney, who was present
at he time, both say the case is the most
peculiar they ever heard of, there being
but few cases like it in the books. The
colonel had been examined thoroughly and
scientifically and absolutly nothing found
that would indicate danger in taking ether
inhalations. Kvery vital organ Eeemed
May Have Had llricht's Disease.
A surgeon connected with one of the
largest hospitals in the city said: A case
of this kind is extraordinary. The use of
ether is reduced to a science. It is one of
the safest of drugs to use. It is most un
usual for any accident to happen except
when the patient suffers from an organic
disease. Persons do suffer from organic
diseases which have not developed. Iu
these cases it is unusual, but it some
times happens that the most careful out
ward examination can be made without
discovering the presence of the disease. In
these cases the use of ether may develop
the disease quickly and fatally. That ap
pears to have been the trouble in the case
of Colonel Shepard. The symptoms after
the ether was administered indicated

The Supposed Accomplice of Itavachol
Captured In France.
Paris, March 27. The local police in St.
Michael, department of the Aisne, have
caught the anarchist, Mathieu, suspected
of having been Ravachol's accomplice in
causing the explosions of a year ago and of
having been implicated with him in the
wrecking the . Cafe Very, iu the Kue Ma
genta. Mathieu had robbed a peasant's
hut near St. Michael and the police
searched for him without knowing of his
identity with the notprious anarchist.
Compromising Papers Found.
They found him hidden in a loft. When
he was stripped for examination the police
found in his shoes papers which showed
that he was closely connected with the
plots of the anarchists in Paris. A com
parison of his appearance with the official
description of Mathieu left r.o room for
doubt that he was the man for whom the
Paris police have been looking ever since
the arrest of his colleague Kavachol.

BERLIX, March 27. The assault on King
Umberto by the religious crank Saturday
afternoon gives the morning papers a wel
come opportunity of indulging in all sorts
speculation regarding the kaiser's pro
jected Italian journey. Some papers actu
ally warn the emperor off, claiming that
the organized bands of anarchists are
awaiting their opportunity to slaughter
him. It would -be a good deal easier f .
them to do it in Rome than in his own ter
ritory, where they are watched and kept in
restraint, they say
. Cf Pay for Members of Parliament.
IONDOK, March 37. The commons have
passed, by a vote of 276 to 229, a resolution
that in the future all members be paid for
their services in parliament. This is one
of the most radical measures ever adopted
in the house of commons. By the payment
of a modest salary, which will not exceed
$2,000 a year and most likely will be under
that amount, representatives of the poorer
classes, without private fortunes of their
own will be enabled to sit in parliament.

The Chicago Millionaire Credited With
" Sharp Financiering. "
Chicago, March K7. Orrin W.Potter and
the Illinois Steel company, of Chicago,
have a f4,000,000 suit on their hands, and
they are charged, to put it mildly, with
some sharp financiering. Captain Eber
Ward, of Detroit, died there in 1S75 and
his estate was figured at over tC.OOO.UOO.
Potter was an executor, and the charge is
that he did not agree with the other execu
tors and by sharp practice got them all out
and himself in complete control.
How the Aliened Fraud IV as Done.
The complaint says that some of the
most valuable assets of the state was
rolling mill stock. This Potter sold at a
very low price and it all came back into
his hands somehow. Such manipulations
as the above are the principal charges and
by them Potter is alleged to have become
possessed of all that was valuable in the
estate at an absurdly low price. Potter
when seen Saturday night said the estate
was settled some years ago and there waa
nothing in tue charges they were 'malici

Philadelphia, March 27. With the
proud distinction of having broken the
record of all preliminary trials, and the
satisfaction of being the fastest armor-d
vessel in the world the cruiser Xew York
returned to Cramp's ship yard yesterday.
From the hour she steamed down the Dela

have awaited with deep interest the result
of the great warship's initial performance.
Three Trials of the Vessel.
Her performance during the whole trip
was splendid in every way, but the trials
on speed were phenomenal At the first
she made 20.(K nautical miles per hour;
second, 19.8V nautical miles; average 19.15
nautical miles. Later she was headed for
deeper water. In a run of four consecu
tive hours she maintained a speed of 20.38

New York, March 27. The Journal this
morning declares that anarchists are plot
ting to kill the Prince of Wales when he
comes to America with .Millionaire W. W.
Astor for the purpose of attending the Chi
cago exposition. It is a story that in its
ramifications makes as interesting and sen
sational a tale as has ever excited the offi
cials of the United States and English gov
ernments. Mr. Astor's plan, in case the
Prince of Wales decides to accompany him,
is to speed directly for Boston. When the
party reaches that city it will go to
Chicago by special trains chartered by Mr.
Astor by way of Canada.
Minister Pauncrfote Informed.
That the Prince of Wales has looked
with favor on the idea of accepting Mr.
Astor's offer United States naval oflicials
prove. They base their views on the fact
that ever since the question of the priuce's
visit to America has been discussed the
British admiralty hasbn moboilizing the
famous Knglih channel squadron for
foreign duty. On the other hand' these
preparations have caused the making of
plots to bring the earthly career of the
Prince of Wales to an end during his
American tour. These views have leen
already presented to Julian Pauncefote,
the English ambassador at Washington. 4
Warned by a Canadian Soldier.
Major Charles Fox Billings, of Peter
boro, Ont., Canada, not long since wrote to
him stating that he has accurate inforn. -tlon
that an extensive anarchistic plot i.as
been begun in which the leading friends of
the red flag in the United States and
Canada are concerned, and which in the
event of the visit of the Prince of Wales to
America will end iu his murder. A letter
ordinarily would meet with scant courtesy
at the hands of Sir Julian Pauncefote, who
would believe in the work of a crank, but
in this case the writer of the startling news
is no crank. He is a retired Knglish army
officer of good standing. He served in the
Crimean war as major of the Seventeenth
Knglish lancers and afterward was trans
ferred to Cnnada. He is a holder of the
Yictoria cross, the Crimean cross and
CREATED GREAT CONSTERNATION.
The Priuoe Vrged to Refuse Astor's Offer
Ararrhists Very Active.
The Journal states that Sir Julian
Pauncefote immediately communicated
the tenor of the letter to the Knglish for
eign office, and the result was widespread
consternation. Cablegrams long and co
gent have passed between the British mis
sion and the London foreign office. English
agents in all the large cities of the United
States and Canada have been communi
cated with. Every effort has been made to
induce the prince to refuse Mr. Astor's
Poison, Pistol. Knife or Dynamite,
The major s:iys that the moment the
prince lands In America his death war
rant will be staled. He will be a victim to
secret poisoning, the knife, the revolver or
by the throwing of that king-killer the
dynamite bomb. If possible the crime will
be committed in the United State, but if
not it will be accomplished when the
prince is in Canada. The Journal sys
thut the situation is so grave that the
matter of the proposed acceptance of Mr.
Astor's invitation is about to become the
reason for oficial inquiry in England,
llyrnes Not Advertising His Knowledge.
Superintendent Byrnes, when asked of
the danger the prince would run, said
that he had recently received advices from
Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago and Cana
dian cities that there was great activity
among anarchists. "If I knew the details
of the plot to murder the Prince'of Wales I
should not tell you of it. Mind I do not
say I know anything of such a plot. But
if the future king of England visits New
York I hope our police force will be able to
protect him and I do not fear that it can
not." Fear Drove Him to Surrender.
Grand R a firs, Mich., March 27. Wil
liam Hawley could scarcely prevail upon
the Ionia house of correction to lock him
up when he so requested Saturday night.
He escaped in 1ssj4 after serving a few
months of a three year sentence from Ot
tawa countv or larceny. Fear so preyed
ujMin his mind that he finally came back
and gave himself up.
Heats the Record on Tumors.
PlTTSBrnw. March 27. One of the most
remarkable surgical operations on record

hospital yesterday by which a tun.r
weighiug 1: pounds was removed from

A Special Session of Congress.
Washington, March 27. This morning

his mind to call an extra session of con
gress next September. He made this
statement several times during last week

Washington, March 27. The date of
final adjournment is apparently nt least
two weeks off, aud it looks as if it would
be about the 10th of April before the presi
dent signifies to the senate that he does not
need to keep it in session any longer and
dissolution of the special session occurs.

Proxpect of a Long Talk.
Washington", March 27. The indications
are that this week the senate will under
take the discussion and perhaps the de

body in late years, namely, the right of a
governor of a state to fill a vacancy in the
United States senate which occurred while
the legislature was in session. The com
