IiOMi:. April C-'.-At 2:30 o'clock this af.trnoon. while Kins Humbert was on -his way to the race, a man nanvl Pietro Acciarito. an iron worker out of employ ment, attemptou to slab his Majesty with a dagger. The mar. was .ized before ho could carry out his purpose and the Kinsr proceeded to the Camptnelle ran; course, seemlnsly unmoved. On arriving at the race cour.se his Majesty was preatly j cheered. Acciarito appears to be a political fanatic. He says he has no accomplices. King Humbert, accompanied by his aid- de-camp. General Pondis Gaglia. was Koinfr : to witness the royal derby. His assailant, who was waitinc: outside St. John's gate, rushed up to the carriage in which his Majesty was seated and attempted to stab him. The Kins avoided the dagger by ris ing from his seat. Acciarito, seeing he had failed in his attempt to assassinate the King, threw away his dagger. He was im mediately arrested by two carbineers, while his Majesty calmly ordered his coachman to drive on. The news spread with great rapidity and when the King reached the royal stand at the race course it was soon surrounded by a cheering multitude. The members of the diplomatic corps present at the race and a number of otheristinguished people sent their congratulations to the King on his escape. King Humbert treated the matter lightly, and remarked: "It Is only one of the little incidents of my trade." The Kin? remained at the race course with his nephew, the Duke of Aosla, until the royal derby was run. His Majesty returned to the Quirlnal. fol lowed by hundreds of carriages, and thou sands of people gathered about the palace and gave him an Imposing and frantic ova tion. They called for the royal hymn, and the band of the guard on duty at the palace played it repeatedly. King Humbert and Queen Margaret were greatly moved by the popular demonstration and twice appeared on the balcony of the palace and bowed their acknowledgements of the frantic cheering of the populace. The embassies, public ofllces and private houses were dec orated with flags as an expression of re joicing at the escape of his Majesty and thousands of people inscribed their names at the palace. During the afternoon pla cards were pested calling upon the popula tion to take part in a great manifestation Jn honor of the King at 0 o'clock to-night. Queen Margaret arrived at the race course shortly after King Humbert, who Informed her of his escape. The Queen was greatly agitated, and affectionately pressed his hand. The newspapers and the public universal ly execrate the attempt. At the theaters and at many other places of public gather ings throughout the country loyal mani festations indicate the popular sympathy. Acciarito declares that he was impelled to the act by hunger, but it appears that yesterday he uttered vague threats of an Intention to kill an exalted person. This Is the second time the life of King Humbert has been attempted. As his Majesty was leaving for Naples on Nov. 17, 1ST?, the year of his acccession to the throne, a man named Giovanni Passanante approached the King's carriage and at tempted to stab his Majesty with a dagger. The King, however, was only scratched by the blade, but Signor Cairoli, who was then prime minister and who was with his Majesty in the carriage, was severely wounded in the thigh. Passanante was sentenced to death, but the King commuted his sentence to Imprisonment for life. Acciarito. who attempted to kill the King to-day. Is twenty-four years old and a na tive of Artegna, a village of the province of Unoline, three miles south of Genoa. Attempt to Kill n President. MONTEVIDEO, April 22. An attempt ha3 been made to assassinate the President of Uruguay, Senor Jidlaste Uorda. He was shct at by the would-be assassin, but the buliet missed Its mark. The President's assailant was arrested. The would-bo assassin Is u student named Itabccca. The President was standing in the gateway of the oillclal residence when the weapon was leveleet at him. The re volver was old and fortunately missed fire. It does not appear that any political signifi cance attaches to the act. PRAISl-2 FOIl COL.. II AY. London ertnpnper Pleased with the KmbaModor'n Short Speeeh. LONDON. April 21 The United States embassador. Colonel John Hay. accom panied by the secretary of the United States embassy, Henry White, called at the Foreign Office this afternoon and saw the permanent officials of that department of the government. All the afternoon papers cordially wel comed Colonel Hay to the court of St. James, and remark upon the good taste he displayed In his speech in reply to the wel come yesterday of the rriyor of Southamp ton upon tho embassador's arrival at that port.

The St. James Gazette remarks: ""Ylonel Hay is aware thai his welcome here Is sincere enouch to need no gush. Doubtless he will do his best to promote good will be tween ourselves and the I'r.ited States Perhaps his services will be called into pl iy earlier than expected.

The break at Promised Land in Issaquena county. Mis sissippi, is reported to be more serious than at first supposed. The crevasse has wid ened considerably since last night, and the water is pouring through In great volume. Many places heretofore high and dry are being inundated and the water is rising hourly. There is much destitution existing In the Bogue Phalia country, principally among the poorer class of negroes, and a call for Immediate aid has been issued. The situation south of Vicksburg remains practically unchanged. No new breaks are reported, but a strict surveillance of the embankments is being kept both day and night. At Memphis the river is stationary to-night. A dispatch from Vicksburg says: "The Valley route completed to-day an inspec tion of its Riverside division from Friar's Point to Leland and thence to Yazoo river bridge. Many miles of track are washed off the roadbed, the latter is seriously washed out. bridges are gone and the dam age Is enormous. The Illinois Central paid S20.000.000 for this road, more than half of which is In the delta, and the road has had at least half that amount of property ly ing Idle since the floods. The cost of re pairs, is not stated, but it will be heavy. It is reliably stated that three-fourths of Madison parish, comprising 43.000 acres of cultivated lands is under water. Very little loss of stock has occurred so far, and none is apprehended. Issaquena and Sharkey counties will be severely affected by the break at Promised Land. One plantation reports a foot rise already, and people who were still clinging to their half-submerged homes will to driven out, as many have been already. "Lieutenant Crowley's two assistants ar rived from Washington to-day. and one of them will leave for the interior of the delta to-morrow. A camp for the refugees has been laid out south of the city, and 413 tents will be put up for them. They are danger ously crowded in their present quarters, many are falling 111 and about fifty are in the hospitals. All will be required to go into camp. The provisions regulating the giving of relief are being very strictly con strued. "Dr. R. J. Coombs, of this city, a prom inent physician and planter, made a trip out in the Hogue. country, twenty-five miles northeast of here, yesterday, and brought back deplorable accounts of the condition there. He says that Ave hundred nesroes men. women and children are huddled to gether with starving horses, mules, cows, pigs, poultry, cats and dogs, on a piece of railroad grade. They are lelng looked after by no one. and have starvation ra tions to keen them for four or live days only. They have no tents, and their only shelter is a patchwork of rags, stretched on poles and walled in with cross ties. The grade is cut through by the water above and below them, and they are literally surrounded by an ocean of water from twenty to twenty-rtve feet deep." Had IMneen in Levee. NEW ORLEANS. April 22.-Several bad places have developed in the 'local levees and prompt work was required to make them secure. There is more feared from breaks above than from Injury to the local lino and the entire protection levee be tween the river and the lake will be raided and strenRthened. work beginning in the morning. The city has been divided up Into districts, each district supplied with a re sponsible superintendent and a large force and ample material, and work is going ahead rapidly. The citizens have guaran teed the funds above those in the hands of the authorities. FIRE AT P0TTERSV1LLE. Thirty-Six Houncm Owned h the Cnr nele Company II n rued. PITTSBURG. April 22Fire broke out at 2:J0 p. m. in the town of Pottersville, noar Homestead, and thirty-six houses were burned. The origin of the lire is unknown. First reports were greatly exaggerated. Pottersville is within the Carnegie yards and consisted of about four hundred framo dwellings which were built at the time of the strike of The place is the home of about three hundred or four hundred families and has a population of about ono ' thousand. It was at first re ported that one man at least and .a number of small chil dren had been burned to death, and the walling of frantic women searching In the crowds for their little ones was pitiable in the extreme. From last reports the missing ones had been acounted for. The houses were owned by the Carnegie Company and were not valuable structures, but were com fortable homes. No household effects were saved by the residents. Other Fires. WASHINGTON. April 22. Fire broke out ulmut l:.) o'clock to-day on the third lloor of storehouse No. 2 at the Washington navy yard, the lower portion of which is used for oifice purpose and the remainder for the storage of merchandise and offi cers' personal effects.

SEISOX BILL PASSED niPOUTAT SIDSTITITE FOR TOR RE Y MAX K II L' PTC Y .MEASURE. It Met with Little Opposition In the Senate nml Wn Adopted by u. Vote of 41) to S. PROVISIONS OF THE BILL RESOLUTION KMMJ ESS I ii SYMPA THY FOR THE WARRING GREEKS. The "Great White Czar" of the House Renamed the "('rent White Fili buster by Mr. Morgan. 1 WASHINGTON, April 22.-The session of, tho Senate to-day was one of the most j eventful since Congress assembled. It ' opened with a proposition for an official ex pression of sympathy to the Greeks in their struggle with Turkey. This soon was merged In a turbulent debate over the dis organized state of the Senate, during which Senator Morgan characterized Speaker ; Reed as the "great white filibuster." Later in tho day the Nelson bankruptcy bill was passed by the decisive vote of 49 to 8, as follows: Yeas Allen, Baker, Bate, Butler. Chand ler. Chilton. Clark. Cullom. Davis, Fair banks. Foraker, Frye, Gear, Hanna, Hans brough, Harris of Kansas. Hawley, Heit feld, Hoar. Jones of Arkansas. Kyle, Bodge, McBride. McMillan. Mantle, Martin, Mason, Mills. Mitchell. Murphy. Nelson. Pasco, Perkins, Pettigrew. Piatt of New York, Pritchard. Roach, Sewell. Smith, Spooner, Stewart, Tillman. Turner, Vest. Walthall. Warren, Wellington, White. Wilson. Nays Berry, Clay. Gorman. Gray, Lind say, McEnery, Morgan, Pettus. Mr. Allen, of Nebraska, offered the resolu tion providing that the chief executive ex press the sympathy of the American people to tho government of Greece. The senator declared that the present contest was one between Christianity and Paganism. At the request of Mr. Davis, chairman of the committee on foreign relations the resolu tion was referred, Mr. Davis promising speedy action. The resolution reads: "Resolved. That the established policy of the United States of avoiding entangling alliances with the European powers is in no respect violated by our sympathizing with the Christian people of Greece In their present heroic struggle against the ad vancement of the Ottoman empire; and that, in the judgment of tho Senate it would be a recognition of the wishes of all. for the executive to express to the govern ment of Greece tho sympathy of the Ameri can people." The debate on Senate committees aroused Mr. Morgan to a speech of unusual severity. He spoke of "dictatorships," of the sub ordination of public business to politics. He characterized the condition of inaction in the House of Representatives as "the most gigantic and unheard of filibuster" ever attempted. In conclusion Mr. Morgan said that 'the speaker of the House, who had been known as "the great white Czar" should be hereafter known as the "great white filibuster." Another stirring chapter to the same sub ject was added by Mr. Allen, who proposed a complete cessation of Senate business, except to consider appropriation bills until committees were filled. Tho resolution led to another heated debate in which Messrs. Chandler, Gear and Allen participated. The resolution finally went over. The bankruptcy bill as passed is the sub stitute frametl by Mr. Nelson, of Minnesota. The success of this substitute in displacing the committee bill was a great surprise and disappointment to the judiciary com mittee which had reported a comprehensive bill, known as the Torrey bill. It was re garded as a personal triumph of Mr. Nelson. The Nelson bill, as passed, provides for voluntary and Involuntary bankruptcy, but the theory of its author was to free it from harshness and make It of substantial benefit to debtors and creditors, it is sim ple compared with the Torrey bill. The bill provides that any debter, other than a cor poration, owing $2r0 or more, who Is un able to pay his debts, may file his petition it- the District Court of the United States, offering to surrender all his property for the payment of Ms debts except such as is exempt by the law of his domicile. The petition shall give a schedule of all prop erty, exempt and unexempt, and of all creditors and the amount and n?ture of the debts and the petitioner shall offer to sur render all his unexempt property for a full dlscharg3 from his debts and liabilities. The petition shall be heard by the court in not less than thirty nor more than ninety days. If the court upholds the petition the estate is transferred to an "assignee" for settlement. Creditors can resist the pro ceedings before the court on certain enum erated grounds of fraud, preference to cred itors, etc. Preferences lour months prior to tiling bankruptcy petitions are void and transfers of property within six months are vcid. Provision is made for distributing the es tate among the creditors. After the set tlement the court gives a final decree, dis charging the bankrupt from all liabilities to any of the creditors described in the schedule who may become a party to the proceedings. But such discharge- shall not include any obligations which shall have been created In consequence of his defalca tion as a public officer, or as an executor, administrator, guardian or trustee, or while acting In any other fiduciary capacity: nor any debtor obligation to any surety of the bankrupt who has paid or may pay any such fiduciary debt or any part of it. nor any debt or obligation created by the ob taining of moneys or property under false pretenses. The provision as to involuntary bank ruptcy is that if any debtor being a banker, broker, merchant, trader or manufacturer, who owes ?.0O or over, shall, at any time within four months of the time of the tiling of the petition; convey or voluntarily en cumber any of his property with the pur pose to prefer or defraud any creditors, he shall be deemed bankrupt. Creditors hav ing debts against such a bankrupt to tho amount of $500 may. within four months after the act of bankruptcy has been com mitted, file in the court a petition for an adjudication of bankruptcy. The court then proceeds within thirty days to hear the case. The accused may demand a jury. On the hearing the court or jury holds whether the accused Is or is not a bank rupt. Fees in both classes of bankruptcy are provided, namely: Attorney fees not above $100: assignee, not above 1 per day. Appeals are allowed except when entire bankrup estate is uncVr $.".(h)0. After the pasasge of the bankruptcy bill, the "free homestea I bill" was taken up. Mr. Morgan offered an amendment providing that all public lands not taken up bv public entry by Jan. 1. J'.'tio. shall bo granted to the States iml Territories where the lands are located for educational pur poses. The homestead bill was made the unfinished business and then laid aside. On the announcement of the death of Representative Holman the Senate ad journed as a mark of respect, the adjourn ment being until next Monday. Although no formal action has been taken an understanding has been reuched-that the Senate will not do any more business until a week from next Monday. When the Sen ate meets on Monday an adjournment will be taken until Thursday and on Thursday anather adjournment taken to the following Monday. This will allow those who desire to attend tho Grant monument ceremonies to do so. III.ANIMTES ROUTED. Bailey nnd Hi Democrntlr Faction in the House Analn In Evidence. WASHINGTON. April 22. The House to day adopted a special order for considera tion of the Senate amendments of the In dian appropriation bill without reference to a committee. Democratic dissensions again ciime to the surface. Mr. IJailey and his followers joined with the Republicans on this" proposition, after the special order had been modified so as not to cover the ap propriation bills. Mr. Bland, of Missouri, protested vigorously against the course, but only had a following of twenty-four, not enough to get a record vote. Mr. Simp son, of Kansas, is out of the city, and therefore was not In evidence. The Sen ate amendments of minor Importance were concurred in, except that removing the In dian supply depot from Chicago to Omaha. The amendment relative to the opening of the Uncompahgre reservation was not I acted on to-day. While it was being de- bated the death of Judge Holrrian was an nounced, and as a mark of respect the House adjourned. When the amendment relating to the opening of the Uncompahgre Indian res ervation was reached. Mr. Sherman moved r.onconcurrence. Mr. Lacey argued that the gilsonite linds In the reservation should be opened up. but not given away. The rights of the government should be pro tected by a system of leases and royalties. Mr. King supported the Senate amend ment and declared that the richness of the gilsonite beds had been greatly exagger ated. He argued that It had been the un broken rule to allow prospectors on mineral land.s to reap the reward of their discov eries, and that there was no reason now to change the government's policy. No such policy had ever been suggested as to sold and silver, petroleum and all other prod ucts. "Has not the government's present pol icy resulted in the aprrandlzoment of a few corporations and the Impoverishment of the wholi? people?' asked Mr. Maguire. Mr. Kins replied that the result had been just the reverse. The whole people had profited. Mr. Underwood read from the report of the experts, showing that the deposits cov ered 10.(00 square, miles and that 23.000.000 tons were in sight. It was worth in the markets $40 per ton. This ended the debate for tho day. - M-JV MINISTER TO HAWAII. Ilnrold M. Scwiill, Son of Bryan's Ilmi nliiK Mate. Nominated. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. WASHINGTON, April 22.-Harold M. Sewall. of Maine, whose father was one of tho tails of tho Populistic ticket in the re cent campaign, was to-day nominated to be envoy extraordinary and minister plenipo tentiary of the United States at Hawaii. The nominee is an ardent sound-money Republican, while his father is a Democrat who went wandering after the strange sil ver god and landed in the Popocratic camp. Young Mr. Sewall has been in the ellplo matic service before at Apia, Samoa where he was sent as consul by President Harrison. President McKlnley to-day also nominated a batch of postmasters and the following: Thomas H. Phair, of Maine, col lector of customs, district of Aroostook, Maine; James S. Harriman. of Maine, col lector of customs, district of Belfast. Me.: Assistant Surgeon Ezra K. Sprague, of New Jersey, to be passed assistant surgeon, Marine Hospital Service. The Senate in executive session to-day confirmed the following nominations: Har old M. Sowall, of Maine, to be minister to Hawaii; J. A. Smith, of Vermont, to be consul at Leghorn. Italy; Thomas S. Har rison, of Pennsylvania, to be agent and con sul general at Cairo, Egypt: Frank R. Moore, of New York, to be colllector of In ternal revenue for the First district of New York; James E. Davenport, of New Hamp shire, to be first deputy commissioner of pensions: Everett M. Kelley. of Illinois, to be second deputy commissioner of pensions; Milton Phillips, of Wisconsin, to be attor ney of the United States for the Eastern district of Wisconsin; William ouneblood. of Alabama, to be auditor for the lnt rior Department: J. P. Jackson, of California, to be collector of customs, district of San Francisco. The Senate committee on Indian affairs to-day reported favorably the nomination of Wm. A. Jones, of Wisconsin, to be com missioner of Indian affairs. Mr. Lanham, of Texas, to-day Introduced a bill entitled "To reduce the expenditures of the government, to decrease federal sal aries and to discourage the office-seeking Industry," which provides for a reduction in the salaries of all persons on the rolls of the United States 33 1-3 per cent. The preamble declares that there is an abnor mal disproportion between the compensa tion of government employes and citizens in private occupations which causes an un seemly race for office. Indiana postmasters were appointed to day as follows: Adams, Decatur county, Dan W. Hazelrigg, vice James Darby, re movetl; Rumey. Decatur county, J. S. Minor, vice E. E. House, removed; Cllfty, Decatur county, Morton Messenheimer, vice W. J. Grant, removed; Edna Mills, Clinton county, S. J. Roth, vice J. H. Yost, resigned; Helmer. Steuben county, H. S. Pallman. vice Isaiah H. Hovarter, removed: Millhousen, Decatur county, George Rhodes, vice Joseph Herbert, re moved; Newton Stewart. Orange county, W. J. North, vice L. A." Parks, removed; Spe-neerville, De Kalb county, Jack Beams, vice Edwin Beams, resigned. All of the executive departments of the government are receiving large numbers of letters from ex-soldeirs Indicating a general misunderstanding as to their rights to ap pointment to office. Many of the veterans who are after office seem to labor under the impression that they can be appointed to positions in the civil service without the formality of the examination or requisition of the Civil-service Commission. This is largely due to the fact that the law pro vides that ex-soldiers within the civil serv ice who resign or who are displaced for cause other than their own fault may be ie instated to their old positions at any time. The law. however, makes no provision giv ing preference to soldiers In entering the government service who have not been In the civil service before, except that offi cials making requisitions on the Civil-service Commission for a list of eligible ap pointees may favor the veterans who may happen to be on that list. AVork on the Tariff Hill. WASHINGTON. April 22. The Republic an tariff subcommittee of the Senate finance committee is working now with its eyes lixed upon next Tuesday as the day to report the tariff bill to the full committee, but without feeling at all confident that this result can be accomplished. All will depend upon the Interruptions that may take place, the persistence and iniluence of thoso who seek changes, and the demands of other senators, and the bill mav not go to the full committee before the end of the week. The committee is also informing those who seek to secure changes in the bill that their suggestions are not likely . to Ihj considered after the present week, and that, consequently, whatever amendments are to be made will be finally passed upon before the close of the work on Saturday night. The Perriiie Land Grant. WASHINGTON, April 22. Senator Petti grew, from the committee on public lands, to-day filed a minority report oa the inves tigation of the Pcrrlne grant In Florida. He contends that it is the duty of Con gress to de-clare the grant forfeited and of the executive department to cancel the patents and punish the offenders. He says that "no compliance on the part of the Perrine heirs with the provisions of the grant has bein made, but by fraudulent, pretended compliance patents have been se cured to nearly 23.1M0 acres." He says there are indications of collusion on the "part of the officers of the government In "this ne farious and fraudulent transaction." The Perrines are related to ex-President Cleve land. TRAGEDY AND MYSTERY. Two Men Found Dead and Only One Revolver to Tell the Tale. UN I ONTO WN. Pa., April 22. Frank Brown, civil engineer of Fair Chance, and Joshua McFadden, a butcher, of this place, met their death to-day in a very mysterious and tragic manner. The men engaged a room at tho Iifayette Hotel this afternoon in which to transact some, important busi ness. About 6 o'clock the clerk heard six pistol shots, but thinking some person was shooting rats, paid no attention to it. Later in the evening their room door was forced open and the dead bodies of both men were found lying on the floor. Brown's head was badly torn with shot, and he had a bullet hole through his left hand. McFadden had died of hemorrhage, a bullet having1 pene trated his lung. Only one revolver was found in the room and it Is believed one man killed the otiier and commltte-d suicide. The men were formerly business partners and when they dissolved Brown Rave Mc Fadden a note for J220. This note was found torn in two and covered with blood lying on the-lloor. It is supposed they quarreled over the settlement of the note. Some think there is a woman In the case, and jealousy was the cause of the tragedy. Receiver for Brewing; Company. NEW YORK. April 22.

Finance Min ister Fielding delivered his budget speech in the House of Commons to-day. Taking up the question of tariffs. Mr. Fielding at tacked the national high tariff protec tive policy which has been in force in Canada for many years. He said that policy had proved a most dismal failure, and that while manufacturers had no vested rights in protection, the government did not propose to strike it down at once, because In doing so the laborers and others concerned would have to be considered as well as the manufacturers. When the Lil- eral party had laid down its policy on the tariff question in convention in Ottawa in lsS: the United States had just a little before that time declared through the Dem ocratic party in favor of tariff reform. The Canadian Liberals followed suit, with the idea that an opportunity would be given to the United States to enter into reciprocity with this country. Since that time the United States had returned to a high protec tion, and now there was little prospect of securing a reciprocity with that countrj. He did not believe that the Dingley bill was framed against Canada, but its effect was to prevent freer trade relations with Can ada. He did not propose retaliation against the United States. It would not be wisdom to adopt such a policy. He did not give up all hope of reciprocity with the Uniteti States, but in the meantime Canada vould deal with those countries which were wil ling to deal with her. While there vas to be a general tariff, yet there was going to be a preferential tariff for those countries that were willing to deal with this country. That preferential tariff would be against the United States and in favor of the prod ucts of Great Britain. WORK OF CRIMINALS. JLouiNvllIe A Nashville PasiteiiKer Train Wrecked In Alabama. LOUISVILLE. Ky., April 22.-A Louisville & Nashville train was criminally wrecked last night at Mudge's trestle, nine miles north of Evergreen, Ala. Engineer Adams, Fireman Jones and express messenger Locke were badly scalded and injured. In many respect the wreck was similar to the recent awful affair at Cahaba, Ala, and, though not attended with such disastrous results, seemed to have been planned as de liberately as that one. According to the in formation which has reached the superin tendent of transportation here, four negro tramps who were seen in the neighborhood shortly before the accident occurred, re moved the rails just south of the trestle. The job was neatly done, and nothing would have saved the trainload of passen gers had It not been for the heroism of Fireman Jones and Engineer Adams, who remained at their posts after tho engine had left the track. The engine, caboose, baggage and mail cars were completely wrecked, but none of the passengers were injured. MURDER IN THE TENDERLOIN.

Murphy was later arraigned in court and committed to jail without bail pending in vestigation of the murder.

Before turning bartender Murphy was a stevedore. UNUSUAL ACCIDENT. Little Girl Hanged by Her Bonnet StrlngM to ti Cherry Tree Liiuh. DES MOINES, la., April 22.-The little daughter of John F.
