Pari, June 21. Sadie Carnot, presl
oent of the French Republic, wan
tabbed mortally at 9:15 o'clock this
evening In Lyons by Osare Giovanni
Santo, an Italian anarchlBt, twenty
one years old.
President Carnot went to Lyons to
visit the exhibition ot arts, sciences
and Industries. He left the chamber of
commerce banquet, given In his honor,
shortly after 9 o'clock and walked to
his carriage, which was waiting In the
Place do la Bourse. He had hardly
taken his seat when Santo, with a
newspaper In his hand, preened through
the crowd and sprang upon the car
riage step. President Carnot started
slightly. Santo snatched a dagger from
the newspaper and plunged It Into the
president's abdomen near the liver.
The president sank back unconscious.
He was taken at once to the prefecture
and the most skillful surgeons in the
city were summoned. Meantime San
to was arrested.
The news spread swiftly to every
part of the city. Infuriated crowds
filled the streets. ' Before 10 o'clock an
Italian restaurant had been sacked
and the police were obliged to strain
every nerve to protect the Italian con
A dispatch received at midnight from
Lyons gives this account of the assas
sination: President Carnot had already entered
his carriage when the attack was made
upon him by Santo. He had partaken
of refreshments at the chamber of com
merce and the procession which had
escorted him from the exposition had
been reformed in the Place des Cordel
iers and had started for the Grand
theater, where a gala performance had
been arranged In his honor. The car
riage had hardly more than started
along the Rue de la Republic amid the
acclamation of the thousands of spec
tators and President Carnot-was ac
knowledging the enthusiastic greetings
of the people.
In front of the Credit Lyonnaise a
man suddenly ran forward to the car
riage. Jumped to the step and stabbed
the president to the heart with a dag
ger which, he had concealed under his
eoat. An eye-witness who was walk
. Ing abreast of the president's carriage
with ,AdrJen Dupuy, the , premier's
brother, says that as the president's
rialsfe his own attention waa attracted
by fa slight disturbance "in the front
Hnef of the crowd. He then saw the
carjf lage itop. The president had fal
len back against the cushions and his
fac j had become livid. An outcry was
ral ied at once. Hundreds shouted that
n attempt on the president's life had
kei n mads and the crowd seemed sud
lenly to go mad with excitement.
I Meanwhile the assassin had hnen
filled to the ground with a blow by M.
Rjivaud, prefect of the Rhone. He waj
surrounded by an angry crowd and
ekes of "lynch him," were heard on
Bill sides. It was only with the grew est
difficulty that the police were able (o
protect him. In fact had not & mob of
mounted guards surrounded ami pio-
!:ected the police on their way to the
station the -prisoner would havp been
taken from them and beaten, to
At 11:30 o'clock last evening the sur
geons at the prefecture issued this bul
"The president's condition Is alarm
ing, but not hopeless. The wound, is
In the region of the liver. - The hemorrhage-
which was very copious has now
A little more than an hour later the
president was dead. . '
At 9 o'clock last night all who had
been invited to attend the gala per
formance. In the president's honor had
gathered In the Grand theater. Every
seat but the boxes was filled. The audi
ence awaited the arrival of the presi
dential party. Suddenly two "men lan
tip to the .main entrance and callad out
that the president had been killed. The
news spread swiftly to the rear sei- ts of
the theater and thence like a wind
over the great audience. A few women
cried out in horror, but the groat ma
jority of those present refused to be
lieve the Intelligence. Several govern
ment officials left the theater lii.nrie
Siately to obtain more information.
It appeared as If all Lyons was at that
moment .assembled in Place de la
Comedle.;. The. multitude was j acked
together like a wall. ..'..
... Suddenly a landau, preceded by four
mounted gendarmes dashed out of the
. Rue de la . Republique. In it were
Adrian, Dupuy, Deputy Chaudey and
M. Rlvaud, the prefect. The crowd
i mistaking the landau for the presi
dent's carriage cried "vlve Carnot! vlve
la republique!" Chaudey-on the right
and Rlvaud on the left called from the
carriage a tones full of emotion:
"Do not shout.'. An attempt has Just
been made upon the life of the presl
dent" ' v ''. .
, The words had immediate effect .On
' every side expressions of execration and
vengeance filled the air. . ' J -
The landau was drilven to the Grand
theater.. Arriving there M. Rlvaud
and ': ; Chaucey . proceeded to the
- president's box. : Seeing them enter the
audience '.'rose from their seats in a
body.",! M. Rlvaud advanced to the
- front of the box and said in a voice
broken with sobs: '"'.;'
"The president of the republic has
' been assassinated."
' ' The announcement caused great hor
, ror, and erieSjOf "A mort! a mort!" and
V "Vengeance!" were heard In All parts of
the - building. M. Rlvaud, continuing.
' said that in the Rue de la Reubllpue a
wretch who had 'approached M. Jarnot
under the pretext of prsentlng a petl
' tion stabbed the president with a dag
. ger Here M. Rlvaud was again lnter-
- rupted with shouts f Indignation and
was heard with much difficulty, when he
"Do not make my task more painful.
We have left M. Carnot In the hands of
doctors. You will understand that un
der these circumstances, .llhtarti being
filled with sorrow, tho performance
cannot take place." The prefect then
left the theater.
Immediately after the president was
stabbed the horses attached to his car
rlag were started at a gallop for the
prefecture. The president lay limp In
the carriage. His eyes were closed nnil
he was apparently lifeless. His clot hen
had been loosened so that the red sash
of the Legion ot Honor was displayed.
On his left side near the waist a wet
red spot told the whole story of his
wound. He was lifted with the greatest
caro from the vehicle and was carried
to his room on the first floor. Ho was
laid on the bed and M. tialleton, the
mayor of the clty.exomlned the wound.
The young assassin's full name was
given by hint at the police station an
Cesare Giovanni Santo. He Is nearly
twenty-two years old, has a very small
moustache and wore a light brown suit
with a peaked cap. On his way to the
station he held his head down and
glanced continually right and left as If
looking for some possible means of es
cape. Upon being Interrogated he gave his
name, but professed to know too little
of the language to say much more. His
Inability to speak French Is rather pe
culiar, as he has lived In Cette for the
last six months and Is believed to have
been considerably longer In the coun
try. He went from Cette to Lyons yes
terday. t - ''.-
London, June 25. The Standard's
Paris dispatch says: The authorities
made every effort to prevent the mur
der becoming known to the public. The
Elysee palace officials refused to give
Information, and telephone communi
cation between Paris and Lyons was
Btopped. . The news of the murder
threw political men Into a state of con
Rternatlon. A workman's book found In
Santo's pocket shows that he was born
in Moulevescontl, province of Milan.
After Dr. Gaileton's examination of
the president's wound It was decided
that an operation was necessary. Dr.
Oilier proceeded to probe the wound.
The president thereupon regained con
sciousness and exclaimed in a clear
"How you are hurting me!"
The News says: The terrible news of
the assassination of the president of
the French republic will be received
with a shock of horror all over the
world. No such blow has been struck
by political hatred and fanaticism since
the bullet of insane Gulteau mortally
wounded General Garfield or the pistol
of Wilkes Booth killed President Lin
coln. M. Carnot, like the presidents of
the sister republic, was a man whom
not only his countrymen, but other na
tions regarded with the utmost confi
dante and respect. In difficult and
even dangerous times he has filled his
exalted post with a personal dignity
and a political sagacity which have
been of the greatest service to the
world. He has brought the republic
through more than one crisis which
has threatened its stability and has
kept his country at peace. He was in
many respects an ideal president. His
period of office would have concluded
with the present year, and there seem
ed every prospect of his re-election.
His presidency will be regarded as the
most brilliant and successful of the
series. His death following the brutal
attack upon him is a very serious ca
lamity for France and Europe.
The Chronicle saysj Lincoln died in
a theater at the hand of a lunatic en
raged at the defeat of confederacy,
which the president Intended to let
down so gently. President Garfield fell
likewise under the bullet of one who
was not made save In a political sense,
and died after two months of anguish.
These are the only parallels that his
tory affords to the fiendish atrocity of
last night. It was understood that
President Carnot did not Intend to seek
re-election that might have been his for
Never was a man less likely to excite
personal vengeance and unless we are
to suppose that he has been the victim
of a mad man's frenzy It must be as
sumed that he has been stricken be
cause he -did notpardon the anarchists
who were recently guillotined for the
murders of innocent men and women.
Sadie Carnot is lying dead, slain by
the wild injustice of a blind savagery.
A madness so perfectly imbecile as
that of his assaSsln the world has never
yet known. 'It is only probable that the
foul deed will give a handle to the
apostles of reaction throughout Europe.

New York, June 24. As the steamer
Algonquin of the Clyde line from
Cluirhnnm and Jnrkaonvllle was off
the Atlantic highlands and about four
miles southeaHt of the- Scotland light
ship at 12:45 this afternoon on her way
to her pier In this city the scream of a
whistle reached the ears of Captain
rintt, who was standing on the bridge.
It was a signal of distress. The cap
tain observed about a mile away a big
tug rolling and pitching on tho waves.
With his glasses he saw that the craft
was crowded with people and that she
was close to tho point of foundering.
He signalled the engine room.
A moment later the ship was in the
wind, .rolling on ,he waves. Tho
screws had stopped. First Olllcer Rice
had been ordered to clear away and
mun a boat and the order was obeyed
in a trlcp. When the work of lowering
the boat was accomplished the people
on the Algonquin looked over the water
to where they had seen the tug. As
they did so the little vessel careened
way over to starboard, her smokestack
almost touching the crest of a passing
Just at this time, however, another
big whitecapcame rolling along and,
striking the tug, sent her over the
other way. Thus the waters played
with her for a minute or two and then
she went to the bottom.
As she sank out of sight, the top of
the wheel-house, together with a raft
and a lifeboat, remained floating on the
water. To every particle of wreck
clung one or more of the drowning
throng. The liferaft was the most
sought for and those who were so for
tunate as to make it were saved.
When the Algonquin reached the
scene of the accident and commenced
the work of rescue.she was Joined In her
labor by three tugs the Governor, the
Wallace B. Flint and the R. J. Moran.
All of these vessels had been cruising
In the vicinity and had responded to
the whistle of distress and reached the
drowning people at about the same
time as did the Algonquin's crew. To
gether they commenced to take the
people from the water and from the
raft. Everyone was cool and collected,
and In twenty minutes from the time
the rescuers arrived, those who had
been on the foundered craft, excepting
those who had gone to the bottom, bad
The Moran confined itself to the raft
These with the few picked up from the
water numbered thirty-four. The Al
gonquin's crew secured ten, while the
Governor and the Flint also got a num
ber on board their respective boats.
The lost tug's lifeboat was found
floating aimlessly about by the Algon
quin's crew. It was full of water and
had evidently been overturned many
times. In the bottom of It, however,
tangled In ropes was found the body of
a man. The man had probably prepared
for a plunge Into the sea. His coat
was off and his shirt sleeves were
irolled Irp Ito .'his shoulders. Efforts
were made to revive the spark of life
that was at first thought to be In him,
but they were unavailing. In his pock
ets was found a quantity of lines and
hooks. . . . ""
From the survivors It was learned
that the lost tug was James D. Nlcol
and that she was owned by William
Reeves of New York city. The people
who were aboard were members of an
excursion party, which was got'Tip un
der the direction of the Herring Fishing
club, a social organization composed
mostly of Germans, and having head
quartersat No. 55 First avenue. It was
tie tenth annual excursion of the club.
A strange feature of the disaster ap
pears to be that but few of the people
'were acquainted with one another.
For instance of the nine persons res
cued by the Algonquin,not one of them
was able to identify the body found in
the boat. Tickets, it appears, were
sold to persons who had probably never
heard of the Herring Fishing club.
The Nlcol left the foot of First street,
East River, at 7:30 this mornlrig. She
passed down through the Narrows and
then moved over to the Fishing Banks,,
off the Highlands, not far from Sea
bright, N. J.. Here the passengers
fished until noon, when the homeward
start was made. As the tug proceeded
homeward the wind freshened and the
waves rolled higher. -
The Algonquin passed the tug and
the latter followed in the wake of the
big steamer. At the time there ap
peared to be nothing amiss on the
Nlcol. But in half an hour the situa
tion was completely changed. The
waves became more boisterous and
dashed up against the side of the tug,
throwing spray over the excursionists
who were on the deck. The stories as
to what next . happened conflict. Ac
cording to one account the fishers, to
avoid getting wet, moved around on the
side of the vessel where the waves did
not strike with such force. It is claimed
by some that this action resulted In the
foundering. With the increased weight
on one side she toppled over and; the
water ran into .her to such an extent
that it was thereafter impossible to
navigate. She struggled for a short
distance, and then, as the water con
tinued to roll over her, she sank further
and further into the swells and finally
went down. By others it Is claimed
that the passengers had nothing .to do
with the accident. These allege that
the tug was old and rotten, that,' she
was terribly overcrowded and consfc
quently topheavy, and that when she
got into the heavy sea she simply went
As near' as can be ascertained twenty-five
people or .thereabouts were
drowned. These figures are secured by
estimates of tha number of persons who
were aboard and the numbe? saved. V
When the crew from the Algonquin
picked up about all they could, carry
nine living and one dead they, put

from the point where the accident oc
curred. It was far too rough to attempt
to bring the rescued on board the

WAY TOTE THIS WEEK.
It Is .Believed the Tariff Bill Will Soon
Be Out of the Senate.
Washington, June 24. Party leaders
on both sides of tho chamber agree that
this week will see tho tariff bill out of
the senate; as to the precise date there
is a divergence of opinion. Messrs.
Harris and Jones expect to seethe final
vote taken not later than Tuesday even
ing. Mr, Aldrich on the republican
side says it may bo taken then, hut it
will more likely be Thursday. Mr. Al
lison says the vote may be taken Thurs
day, but he- hardly thinks it will be
reached before Saturday.
' The republicans have not abandoned
their intention of debating certain
propositions in the bill such as the sugar
schedule, its allegation connection, with
the trust and the investigation now go
ing on. Neither will they overlook the
abandonment of the reciprocal or com
mercial arrangements made under the
provisions of the McKinley act. They
reason after the conferees have made
their report and the policy of the con
trolling party as finally agreed upon has
become kuown there will be ample time
to discuss these subjects.
' It is believed that the ineome' tax part
bf the bill will be concluded to-morrow.
A large number of amendments still to
be offered to the income tax and the at
tack the republicans intend making on
the increase in the-tax on whiskey may,
however, preventri these matters from

THE "BUFFALO VI LL" XXCVRSTOX.
About 300 People WVnt to Brooklyn by
the Al. Foster.
About 300 people enjoyed the excur
sion by the steamer "Al. Foster" to
Buffalo Bill's Wild West show at South

went hail an opportunity of enjoying
themselves to the fullest extent, while
there were many from tho best fami
lies in the city onboard. Mayor Sar
gent and wife were among the passen
gers, and they expressed themselves as
greatly pleased both with the sail on tho
sound and the entertainment furnished
by the Hon. Mr. Cody.
The steamer left Belle dock promptly
at. 8:30 o'clock, and although even at
that hour the streets had become almost
unbearable on account of the heat, when
the boat had got well started on its way
a most refreshing breeze was encoun
tered which lasted until the boat reached
Brooklyn. Excellent iiiusio was fuv
uisbed and refreshments wero served on
board. Ambrose park, in South Brook
lyn, where the show is was reached
about :15 o'clock and at 3 o'clock the
performance begun. The nature of
Buffalo Bill's Wild West is too well
known to need much comment. It can
bo said, however, that no amuse
ment iu the , country is conducted
on as large a scale. Immense
crowds of people from "Greater New
York" witness the two performances
daily. Last Saturday there were fully
1!,000 people present. The exhibition
given by a company of Rillian Arabians
of their manner of riding and national
sports was ono of the best numbers on
the program, while tho crack shooting
of Miss Annie Oakley, Johnnie Baker
and Buffalo Bill was also greatly en
joyed. The congress of the rough riders of
the world included troops of horsemen,
representing the. cavalry of England,
Austria, franco, Rifssia, Turkey, Italy,
also Cossacks, Bedouins, negroes, In
dians and a detachment of United
The show was over shortly after 5
o'clock and tho boat was advertised to
leave nt 5:20, but on account of not
being able to obtain water in the usual
manner, was obliged to go somo dist
ance to procure it. Being thus delayed
the boat did not arrive at New Haven
until 1 o'clock.
The next excursion from Mils city will
be on Saturday, July 7.

seipienco Sullivan dove head foremost)
in the mud and was unablo to extricate
himself from his position. When his-!
companions saw that ho did not riso to

assistance and succeeded in extricating
him from the mud, but not until life
was extinct. Tho body was pulled out
of tho water and carried to tho dock,
where Medical Examiner White was

bo removed to Sisk's undertaking es

teu-yeur-old son of William Lynch of 10
Atwater street, got in beyond his depth
and was drowned. Lynch, with another
lad named O'Ncil, went into the water
and played around in the shallow water
uear t he bank for some time. Finally
they waded out a short distance further,
when Lynch threw up his hands and
disappeared under the water. It is sup
posed that he must have waded into a

at assistance proved futile. Neither of
the boys could swim. The body was re
