Madrid, June 2.—The public rejoic ings over the marriage of King Al fonso and Princess Victoria had a ter ribly dramatic sequel at 2:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon, as a bomb thrown from an upper window exploded with deadly effect near the cbach occupied by the king and queen. Providentially, King Alfonso and Queen Victoria es caped by an electric wire deflecting the bomb, but at least sixteen per sons, most of them of the personal and military escort, were killed.

The explosioni occurred just as the royal couple were about to enter the palace. The route of the cortege had been diverted from Arsenal street to Mayor street, owing to the popular de sires. The procession had just passed through Mayor street and was about to turn into the Esplanade leading to the palace when an explosion shook the buildings in the vicinity, stunning a large number of people and throwing the cortege into inextricable confusion. The royal coach was brought to a sudden stop by the shock, officers and soldier of the escort falling to the ground about the equerry and horses that had been killed. Groans of the Dying. The screams of the terrified multi tude mingled with the groans of the dying. It was immediately seen that the royal coach was intact, except as It had been damaged by flying splint ers. King Alfonso immediately alight ed and assisted Queen Victoria out of the carriage. They then entered an other coach and were driven swiftly to the palace. All this happened so quickly that people away from the immediate vicin ity were not aware of the tragedy that had been enacted, and continued to acclaim their sovereigns. Joy Over King's Escape. Soon, however, there appeared the empty royal coach with two horses missing and the others spattered with blood, several of them bleeding from wounds. The grooms and drivers looked deathly pale in their spangled uniforms. Then came a boy shouting that a bomb had been thrown at the king. The appearance Of the king and queen in a coach brought out delirious ovations. The fact was recognized that the sovereigns-had. been spared. Horrible Spectacle. In the meantime the scene, of the tragedy presented a horrible spectacle with dead men and horses lying about, literally torn to pieces. Intense ex citement prevailed, the mob invading the streets while the forces of the guards sought to maintain order and block the approaching streets. The pavement was literally covered with blood, and the upper stories of the buildings nearest were spattered with it. .. Assassin Is Captured.

King and Queen Tranquil. Frederick W.

Later in the day Mr. Whiteridge went to the royal palace, where he was assured that the king and queen were reasonably tranquil considering the circumstances. Indignation Is Great. The indignation of the people over the outrage was very «reat. Some French detectives were almost lynched because they had a foreign appear ance. After the outrage a visitors' book was opened at the palace. It was signed during the afternoon by the for eign princes, envoys, diplomats, min ister? and officials of all ranks. The mayor of Madrid has posted an address to the people stigmatizing the attempt on the lives of the sovereigns as a foul outrage. Many arrests have been made, among them Manuel Duran, a Cata Ionian, who is believed to have been the principal conspirator. THE ROYAL WEDDING. In Brilliancy Temporarily Forgotten Terrible Tragedy. Thetragic event of the afternoon and the narrow margin by which King Al fonso and the new queen of Spain es caped death has caused the brilliancy of the royal wedding to be temporarily forgotten, although it was to have in augurated a period oI unprecedented festivities. Some of the wedding fea tures, however, were such as to fix themselves indelibly upon the minds of the spectators. One of the prettiest sights was the tiny Prince Alfonso, the actual heir to the throne, who ac companied 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. Bride Is Late. King Alfonso reached the altar long before Princess Victoria. The lengthy wait which ensued led many to dread 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. White ridge, who, through chance or design, occupied the most favorable position of any in the assemblage. With him sat Gen. Dalstein, the French envoy, and alongside of him the envoy of! Mdrocco, a huge Othello swathed in white, and next a Chinese mandarin. United States Represented. Republican simplicity never was more strikingly exemplified. The Eu ropean 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 tenderness 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 effective, to which a melancholy sequel quickly succeeded. LAKE STEAMER IS CUT IN TWAIN Is Sent to Bottom of St. Clair River as Result of Explosion. Detroit, Mich., June 2.—The steamer Erin, up-bound and towing the schoon er Danforth, was run into and cut in two by the steamer Cowle, in the St. Clair river, just below St. Clair. ?arly yesterday, and five members of the Erin's crew were drowned. The collision occurred during a fog. The Cowle is a modern steel freighter, and is not thought to have been much damaged, while the Erin was a wooden vessel of the old type. Se- en Men Saved. Six of the Erin's crew and the thir teen-year-old son of Mrs. Reed, who was on the steamer, were saved. Officers of the schooner Danforth charge that the Cowle did not stop and assist in the rescue of the Erin's crew. •The Erin sank so rapidly after the col lision that those members of the crew who were asleep had little chance for their lives, Officers Were Confused. Capt. Sullivan of the Erin was in the pilot house when the collision occur red, and the impact of the steel freight er as she hit the boat, threw him into the river. He floated down to Marine City on some wreckage before being rescued. Capt. Sullivan says that the officers of the Cowle evidently were confused as to the numbej- of boats ap proaching and that this caused the collision. The body of Mrs. Reed came to the surface, soon after the accident and has been picked up. ADMITS SHOOTING MULLER. Boat Joseph Lach Confesses Crime to Bis marck Officers. Bismarck, N. D., June 1.

Forty-five Americans were killed yesterday at Cananea, Mex., forty miles south of here, where is located the great cop per camp of Col. W. C. Greene. The camp is on fire and it is reported that the Mexicans are defying all authori ty. They are reported to be using dynamite in blowing up the great smelters and mills owned by the Greene company. The trouble arose at Cananea over the demand of the Mexicans for an increase in wages from $3.50 to $5 per day. Mexicans Open Fire. Persons who left there at 1:30 yes terday afternoon said Col. Greene was addressing practically the entire pop ulation of the camp in an effort to pacify the excited Mexicans. How ever, between 4 and 5 o'clock yester day afternoon the Mexicans opened fire on the Americans and forty-five are reported killed. Col. Greene wired at once to Bis bee for all the armed men that could be sent to protect the Americans and their property in Cananea. The popu lation of Cananea is 23,000, of which 5,000 are Americans. Flee by Train Load. The family of Col. Greene arrived here last evening, but the colonel re mains with his property. Two trains loaded with refugees are now en route here from Cananea and will go to Bisbee. Gov. Ysabel of Sonora is hurrying here from Hermosillo, the capital of the state, and will be met here by the Bisbee force who will accompany him to Cananea. There has been bad blood at Ca nanea for some time, and only a month ago the home of the superin tendent of the mine was dynamited by unknown persons. Yesterday one of the policemen of the city was killed by an American who claimed it was a personal grievance he had against the Mexican. Rangers Arm for Fray. Capt. Tom Rynning of the Arizona rangers arrived here last night from Douglas with a posse of his men. All the ariss obtainable in Bisbee, Doug las and Naco are now in the hands of picked men who are ready to go to Cananea. It is believed that the Mex ican officials at Cananea are doing all they can to save life and property. There is great excitement In all the towns along the border as hundreds have relatives and friends in Cananea. At 11:30 last night a train load of refugees arrived here from the scene of trouble and confirmed 'the stories received earlier in the evening. It is known that at least a dozen Americans have been killed and fully fifty Mexicans. Trouble Is Over. Bisbee, Ariz., June 5.—The situation at Cananea is again normal. The American volunteers who went across the line at Naco with Gov. Ysabol of Sonora on Saturday morning returned to Bisbee at 5 o'clock yesterday morn ing. Their services were no longer needed, altnough their presence there, during Saturday before the arrival of Col. Kosterlisky with Mexican rurales held the situation in check. The town is now under martial law and Col. Kosterlisky is disarming Americans and Mexicans alike. A tel ephone message to the Review says not a single shot has been fired since Saturday afternoon at 6 o'clock. Col. Kosterlisky, Gov. Ysabel and the. governor general of Sonora, assist ed by Gen. Torres, are all on the ground, and Col. Greene makes the statement that the trouble is over. A conservative estimate of the num ber killed in the two days' fighting is thirty-six Mexicans and six Ameri cans. Only a Labor Trouble. Americans here and at other points on the border regard the incident at Cananea only as labor trouble which might have occurred in any large mining camp where a large number of foreigners are employed. Every ef fort is being made by Americans and Mexicans alike to discourage race feel ing. It is felt that the strike at Cana nea will not influence the friendly re lations between citizens of the two na tions aiong the border. Business con tinued between Americans and Mex icans as usual. Blames It on Americans. Mexico City, June 5.—A statement made by Luis E. Torres, commander of the military zone in Sonora, indi cates that the Americans in Cananea opened fire on the strikers in the lum ber yard at the mines which provoked the stoning that resulted in the death of the Metcalf brothers. Then, as re ported, Americans in automobiles and on horseback passed through the streets of the town shooting into pri vate residences and killing fifteen Mexicans and wounding several peo ple, including a child who was leaving school. 1 1 -f: rlM •r i*'
