crowd In the Bols de Boulogne
As the landau In which President Faure rode
was passing the cascade at the end of the Bols
de Boulogne a man in the crowd threw a bomb
st tho carriage The missile exploded, but not a
person was In any war Injured.
The explosion caused the greatest excitement.
A nan who was supposed to have thrown the
bomb was arrested after he had been noarly
beaten to death by tho mob. It was then found
that he was Innocent. It was at first thought
that some one had fired a blank revolvor shot in
the air.
President Fauro paid no heed to the explosion,
nor to the excitement which followed it, but pro
ceeded directly to the course. There is not the
slightest doubt that the bomb was aimed at M.
I Faure.
The nws of the attempted assassination
qulcxlr spread throughout Paris, and vast
crowds assembled, who gavo the President a
splendid OTation as he was returning after the
races to the Palace of the Elytee.
It was almost 3 o'clock when M. Faure was
passing the cascade and when the explosion oc
curred. The detonation was loud, but It was at
flnt supposed that a madman bad fired a blank
shot. Immediately thereafter, however, there
was a shower of nails and scraps of metal, while
the air was filled with an evil odor.
No damage was done to the President's car
riage, which proceeded without stopping.
Upon reaching the race course M. Faure Trent
st once to the President's box on the grand
stand and faced tho people, who acclaimed him
The Grand Duke Sergiusof Russia was in the
paddock. When he learned of the outrage he
went to the President's box and warmly con
gratulated htm on his escape.
Tho scene on the grand, stand was oxeeptlon
ally brilliant. Among those who witnessed the
nee were a large number of ladles, all the dlplo-
Irasts, and many grandees who are en route trom
different parts of Europe to attend the approach
ing Jubilee celebrations in London.
In the mean time there was tremendous ex
citement at the scene of the outrage. The crowd
Belted the supposed bomb thrower and be
labored him with sticks, stones, kicks, and cuffs.
Finally, dazed and bleeding, tbe man was taken
inemtody by gendarmes, when it was found
tbat he was a detective in plain clothes who
had been at signed to the special duty of protect
ing toe President.
It lectns that the detective was near M.
Paurs'a earriago when the bomb was thrown.
He immediately dashed Into an adjacent wood
alter the man he suspected had thrown the
romb. He failed to catch him, however, and at
once returned to the ncene of the explosion.
While he was engaged in picking up the remains
of the bomb tho crowd attacked him, mistaking
I him for the criminal. The unfortunate victim
of tbe crowd's fury was taken to a hospital.
The police then mado a search of the place
and found, almoat Intact, a cylinder seven inches
long and three and a half Inches In diameter.
TBey alio found an old pistol and a dagger, and
and a scrap of paper on which was inscribed:
"Tho execution of Felix Fauro."
Many arrests were made of persons in the vi
cinity, bat few of tho prisonors were detained by
the police. Kobody has been arrested since.
Major Meaux Halnt-Marc. one of tbe personal
attaches of tho President, who was In the lan
dau beside M. Faure, says that those In the car
rtgo undoubtedly had a narrow escape. The
wmb fell close to the carriage, and there was a
loud exploaion. after which tbe air was filled
ha suffocating fumes.
The newspapers published special editions
rl'lng all the known details of the affair.
Although tho thrower of the bomb was not
"rested, two youths, aged 10 and 10 years,

Perry, Oklahoma, Juno 13. An unprece
dented revival of religion has prevailed at
Ingalls, Cushlng and Lawson of late. A re
ligious movement began In that section six
months ago, and has continued till It has grown
to wonderful proportions. Six months ago the
town of Ingalls which at one Urns was consid
ered one of the toughest towns in tho two Ter
ritories, bad six saloons. To-day it has none,
ana nobody could get a license to go into the
saloon business. Some of the former liqnor sell
ers are now superintendents in Sunday schools;
others are Sunday school teachers, while nearly
all are members of the Church.
An area of forty miles squaro, including In
galls, Cushlng, and Lawson, for years was the
home of the most noted outlaw bands that ever
operated in the West. It was the rendexvous
for the Daltons, Doollns, Cook, and other noted
bands, whose members are cither dead, having
been killed in fights, or are serving terms in the
penitentiary. Twenty-odd men havo been killed
in Ingalls within tbe past six years. The town
graveyard contains the bodies of ten men who
died with their boots on. Near Lawson fourteen
people were killed In a short time.
But all this Is past. Where whiskoy drink
ing, murdering, gambling, and all sorts of out
lawry existed, churches and churchgotng people
are now In control. One of the most noted of
these outlaws was Bill Uoolln. who died with
his boots on near Lawson last year. A week ago
one of his brothers-in-law was elected superin
tendent of a union Sunday school at Lawson.
This man for years was a harborer and a pro
tector of Doolln and his notorious gang.
During all this reign of outlawry church men
were scarce and nearly the whole population In
the country were apparently In sympathy with
the outlaws. The change is so marked and so
sudden that lthas created commentoverywhere.
The change was brought about by the efforts of
former United States Marshal E. D. Nix, as
sisted by Sheriff Frank Lako of Pawnee county,
and Deputy Marshals Frank M. Can ton, William
Tlghtman, and Hank Thomas. These men
routed tho outlaws and then n 1ml f dozen min
isters began a series of revivals which have con
tinued for months in the different localities.

bad country is Hell Itoarlng Creek. Preacher

bankers, and his cousin, W. Morton Smith, tho
financial editor of the Mail and Krprtet, were
drowned In tho Hudson off Fort Loo )ostordny
afternoon by tho capsizing of a catbont in which
they were sailing.
Miss Alvina Qullmotte, 22 years old, a Bister
of Arcule, was with her brother and cousin at tho
timo tho boat capsized, but was rescued by n
party on board tho naphtha launoh, Lorn a
Doono, owned by Prof. Kdwnrd Weston, the
cloctrlclan and Invontor, who lives in Nowark.
Tho Ouilmottes nnd their cousin, Mr. Smith,
lived together at Watklns Park, holt a mllo bo
low Fort Lee. They loft tho bouse at 2 o'olock
yesterday afternoon and walked to tho shoro at
Uuona Ylsta, whoro thoy hired an olghtcen-foot
catboat nt Carlock's boathouso.
After an hour's sail, when about midstream, tho
boat was Btruck by a squall and was capsized.
Tho three occupants clung to tho upturned boat,
Qullmetto helping his sister with ono arm.
Smith waved his hat to attract attention and
shouted for holD. Finally they managed to
climb on tho bot torn of the boat. Prof. Weston's
launch was 300 yards away.
The party on the launch consisted of Prof.
Weston. Mrs. Weston, their son Edwnrd F., who
is a young man, two young women, Miss Grace
Flood of Orange, N. J and Miss Nutting of Buf
falo, and the sailing master, Capt. Murck.
Tho Lorna Doono Is a fifty-foot boat. Tho
party aboard of her wore preparing to tako din

"Look there! Is that a man In tho water sig
nalling for help I"
With the aid of glasses Prof. Weston wns able
to soo Just what hiul occurred. The Doono was
going up tho river at tho time. Prof. Weston
gave orders to hurry to tho rescue. Before the
Doono reached tho upturnod boat thoso aboard
her saw tho tnrco persons slip from tho boat's
bottom into the water.
One of the men sank out of sight at once. The
other mado a struggle to keep afloat. When
within a fow seconds of being rescued he nlso
sank and was not seen again.

Nevertheless she was sinking for the last tlmo
when the naphtha launch reached her.
Young Edward Weston plunged a boatbonk
Into the water whero tho woman had disap
peared. Ho managed to get hold of her skirts
with It. and, with tho aid of Capt. Murck and
Prof. Weston, she was drawn to the surface.
The three women on board tho Doono helped to
drag her n board.
They rolled ber oror tho dock, administered
whiskoy, and In other ways strove to resuscitate
her, while tho men In tho party kept up the
search for tho two men who had ulsanpoared.
When Mies Qullmetto regained consciousness
she became historical, colling for hor brother,
and exclaiming that If ho had not been rescued,
she wanted todlo.
If Arcule Is drowned." she exclaimed, "throw
me back into tho river.
Capt. Murck quieted her by tolling her that
her brother had been picked up by another boat.
Than, whoa all hopes of rcorerlng tho bodies of
the two men had been despaired of, the Doono
made for the wharf at Buena VI jta.
There a earriago was summoned, and Miss
Qullmetto was taken to her home, a party from
the Doono accompanying her. Neighbors wero
called in, who helped care for her.
The rescuing party abandoned their pleasure
trip and returned to the Atlantic Yacht Club's
house, whero Prof. Weston was seen last nluhu
"It was a very sad affair." said he. "My
guests were all fooling Jolly, and tho Doono was

A Total of 1,600,000 Acres or iJind !ot Iteu
resented In the ITloa.
Atlanta, Qa., June 13. The Populists, repre
senting the country counties, havo been charg
ing tho State Government with all sorts of dis
crimination In tax levies against tbe farmors.
To meet this charge the Legislature several
J ears ago appointed boards of equalization to
eoe that tbe assessments of property wore uni
form In city and country. This caused such a
howl among the Populists in the country that
the succeeding Legislature repealed the law and
restored the practice of every man giving in his
own property.
An Investigating committee now at work has
discovered that In these Populist counties blocks
of land ranging from six to twenty-two thou
sand acros have been lost, and the astounding
fact is developed thnt 1,500,000 acres are unac
counted for. This discrepancy comes from peo
ple In the country exclusively. The Investiga
tion was culled for by Mr. Blulock, member of
the Legislature from the rural county of Fayette.
Tho first big shortage of returns he stumbled
upon was In his own county, whero 7,000 acres
were unaccounted for.

A Train or Klsht Cars Loaded with Coney
Island Biciirslonlsta Crashes Into a Heavy
Nter! Itall Placed Across the Traoka at tba
Itxtrnnee to n Tunnel The Pasaengsra
Am Shaken Up, but Escape Injury.
What appeared to be a deliberate attempt to
wreck an excursion train with 1,000 men,
women, nnd children aboard was mado on tho
New York and Soa Beach Railroad near Sixty
fifth street and Fifth avenue, Brooklyn, nt 0:15
o'clock lost night
From an examination made afterward It Is be
lieved that at loost three mon were concerned in
the nttempt, and had their plan boon successful
a frightful disaster would have occurred.
William Lohmann, assistant superintendent of
tho company, called at tho Fourth avenue
polloo station in Brooklyn last night and re
ported tho case, and Polloo Captain ICenney
started half a dozon mon out on a search for tho
men who attempted tho wreck.
Mr. Lohmann sold thnt somebody had placed
a steel rati thirty fcot long and weighing 000
pounds across the track Just above the entranco
to the tunnel at that point on the road. The
rail was laid squarely across tho track, with the
evident Intention of wrecking the train.
Tho train, which consisted of eight cars
crowded with passengers, loft tho Soa Beach
station at Consy Island at 8:50 o'clock to catch
the 0:20 u'clock boat for New York at the Bay
ltldgo forry. The Brooklyn station of tho
road Is nt Third avenue and Sixty-fifth
street, and tho tunnel Is a short distance
abovo Fifth avenue. The trains run through a
culvert from tho Bay Ridge depot to Seventh
avenue. This particular train was duo at tho
Third avenue depot at 0:05 P. M. and to connect
with tho U:20 boat at Bay nidge.
It was tho heaviest train of the day. The
traffic had been heavy all day. Changes had to
bo mode In the running schedule.
Had the train been on schedule time it would
have undoubtedly beon wrecked, tho officials
Tho train wan in charge of Condutcor Charles
Petty, and tho engineer was William
Mallon. Tho engineer had not begun
to slow down for tho Third avo
nuo station and was running at tho
usual rato of speed whon entering the
tunnol. The rays of the hoadllght shining oh
I the track ahead rovcalcd tho rail laid across the
It was too late for tho engineer to revorse the
lever, however, and tho locomotlvo struck the
rail full tilt.
There was a Jar, a loud report, and tho train
jolted over tho track through tho tunnel, a
piece of tho roll having evidently fallen under
tbo cars.
Tbe train ran smoothly enough after that, and
Engineer Mallon thought it best to go right
ahead to the Third avenue depot, two blocks
beyond. Ho reached there In two minutes and
immediately roported to Mr. Lohmann.
Tbe passengers were bndly frightened, but be
yond a general shaking up nobody was injured.
They were not told what bad occurred, and af
ter some passongers disembarked at Third ave
nue the train went on to Bay Ridge, whero tbe
majority took tbo ferry for this city, all uncon
scious of the danger they had passed through.
Mr. Lohmann and Policeman Kelly, who was
stationed at the Third avenuo depot, hurried
back along tho track to find out what had caused
the trouble.
The) found the heavy rati smashed Into threo
pieces, ono of which was In the shape of tbe let
ter "U." Mr. Lohmann was startled at the
e idont attempt to wreck tho train, and leaving
the policeman at tho sceno he ran to the station
house tolnform the polite.
Tho embankment of the culvert at the point
whero the attempt at wrecking took plaoe slopes
down a dlsUncu of thirty feet, and Mr. Lohmann
thinks tho rail was carried or rolled down tho
Ho says that the Sea Bench company had no
rails of the kind used lying beside their track.
A train twund for Coney Island passed tho point
nnfoly twenty minute before the inbound train
struck the rail. Nothing was seen of the rail by
the engineer of the outward train.
On Sept. 2. 1 805 (Labor Day ), there was a big
accident on the Soa Beach road near Woodlawn
station, which Is noar tho scene of tho attempt
at wrecking last night.
A train made up of seventeen cars crowded
with excursionists from Newark was run Into
by a runaway engine and sixty-seven persons
were hurt, boveral of theso dloa afterward and
tho company had many damage suits to defend.
Mr. Lohmann said Inst night he could not ad
vance any reason for the attempt to w reck the
Mr. IiOhmnnn said the rail could not hare by
any chanoe fallen on the track In tbe maunor tn
which It wus found. Ho declared that It would
havo taken at least thrto men to have moved
the rail down tbo embankment.
Tho trncks of tbe Culver route of the Long
Inland Railroad run parallel with thoso of tho
Sea Honch at a distance of thirty feet, und It
may be that tho rail was one of thoso used on
the Culver trncks.
Up to 1 o'clock this morning tho police had
mado no arrests.
