A ('rank Makes an Assault
on Cleveland.
Tiie Republican Candidate Waves
the Bloody Shirt in Indiana—A
Texas Desperado Escapes.
A Disastrous Fire.
[Spwr.il ItUie llrrald by Associated Pre**.,
Albany, Oei. 20-The city WM thrown iv
to great excitement this morning hy the re
port ihal Governor Cleveland hud been as
saulted while tm his way (n>m the Execu
live Mansion ti» Ihe Capital. Home report.,
had it that he had been assassinated, and
otbeni that he had beeu fatally wounded.
The reports spread with marvellous rapid
Hy, and soon hundred.* thronged the Cap
ital and .nought out the Governor's room to
Inquire as to the foundation for the rumori,
and the condition of the Governor. As la
usually tbe ease, there was a slight founda
tion for the rumors upon which a super
structure of fiction had been built ou punt,
ing from mouth lo mouth. Stripped of all
embelHshmeutstne facts are substantially
as follows:
As Governor Clevelandwas going from
.the Executive mansion to the Capital,
about v o clock this mom lug, he wa*
assaulted iv front of the Medical Col-
Jege by Samuel Boone, of Klmlra, who
struck at the Governor with his right hand.
The blow was WHrded oif, aud the man re
peated the blows several time* without hit
ting the Governor s face. He then darted
-toward a pile of cobblestones, but waa Inter
cepted by Ur. Houghton before he obtained
ihe missile. Booue returned to attack the
-Governor again, when Houghton seized aud
held him, and the Governor dellb
erately resumed his walk. Boone
wis released and went r|iiletly to
his boarding house on LancHStersireet,where
he was arrested shortly afterwards. Dr.
Houghton overtook the Governor and con
versed briefly with him about the assault.
The Governor proceeded to the Capitol and
went to work, alluding only casually to the
mntterto the attaches of his office. In the
police court Boone pleaded uot guilty. And
asked two days to prepare his case, as he
wanted to telegraph Judge Hoanlmau Smith,
of the Supreme Court, to defend him. The
c ise was put down for Wednesday afternoon.
Booue aa- beeu seeking a pardon for his
brother in law, Byron B. Fairbanks, sen
tenced to two years at Auburn for shooting
Into a crowd assembled near his house ou
Hallow een and seriously wounding a boy.
Boone and wile called on the Governor at
Klmira during his recent visit in lhe Htate
Fair and asked for a pardon for Fairbanks.
The Governor said he would look into it
when he returned to Albany. He mentioned
the matter to District Attorney slauflliUeld,
Who expressed himself a* strung y opposed
to granting a pardon, as he did not think
there were auy grounds for clemency.
About a wf* or ten days after Cleveland
returned (Boone) turned up. The Gov
ernor sAld he had not reached the case yet.
Boone made some threatening remarks aud
retired. Boone followed the Governor back
end forth to the Executive Mansion that day
nnd declared be would not leave until he
t ranted the pardon. Finally he disappeared,
ist Monday be reappeared. Mrs. Booue
went Into the executive chamber while her
husband remained In the anteroom. She
became excited and violent in her language
and the Governor's attendants say suddenly
struck at Cleveland, who seised her arm be
fore the blow came, and requested tbe
ivoman to be seated and be calm. He rose
and she sat down and then screaming, fell
fo the fittor in violent hysterics. Two order
lies then removed her across the street to a
house where she was treated. Hhe has beeu
liysterleal moat of the time since. Boone
Mates thai when he heard his wife scream
he rushed into the exeeullve chamber aud
found the Governor just letting go of her.
He wit* put aside by the orderlies, who re
moved the woman. He claimed that the
treatment of his wife was so severe that she
is in a dying condition aud overcome, by his
feelings he attacked the Governor A re
port* r of the Albany Jmumil, who called at
{he house where Mrs. Boone Is, saw her and
lhe braises on her arm where it ts alleged
iheG.iveri.Mr seized her, were shown him.
The attendant* said she was iv a comatose
condition and apparently dying
Biame, who assaulted the Governor unsuc
cessfully, solicited fo* his brother In law,
who Is confined in Auburn prison for -hoot
ing a man in chenung comity a year ago,
Boone met the Governor as he was walking
over JCagle street from the Executive man
*>iou to |he Capitol, about * o'clock this
morning, and struck at him, at thesame
t'xee uttering au oath. Governor Cleveland
i>rew up his hand- and warded off the
/low. Several person- near by who saw the
flair ran after tbe man and captured him.
tfovernor Cleveland al ouee proceeded to
the Executive Chamber. Boone mmc here
about two weeks ago to press his applieaflon
•nd the Governor said to him that he woubi
lake spthepapersat his earliest convenience
end would decide it a* soon as possthb-
Ufs impression was thst the prosecuting
officers of the eouutnr were unfavorable to
the pardon, and If so, he aoyld not grant it
unless they saw fit from further reflections
to modify their statements as no pardons
Were granted In opposition to looal author
ities. Boone, at this demanded an tnimedi
ml* answer, yes, or no," and said to Cleve
land, If the District Attorney had reported
egaiust pardon, he would slap his face, and
if not be would come hack aud slap the
G -vernor's face. In a few days Booue tele
graphed ibe Governor that the District
Attorney hat] saved him a face slapping by
acknowledging that Cleveland's statement
was true. Last week, one morning, Booue
and his wife appeared at the Kaeetitlve
Chambers.Aiid the Governor granted them an
Audience. The woman was In a state of great
Bervoutt incitement and attempted to strike
the Governor- He caught her by the wrist
"My dear woman, you are tteslde yourself;
a.t down aud let Ms talk this matter over
reasonably '' At tbat Bag threw herself on
Iheiltw.r and screamed and shouted until
ehe was removed front the building. Boone
and wife have remained here ever since nnd
lixitis has followed the U.neruor hack and
forth from his house to the eipllol He has
uttered all manner of threats to shoot
Cleveland, eb* , and was regarded asacrank:
his wife has had several fits >.f hysteria and
(he attending physician urged Boone to lake
her home, but he has refused Booue Is In
tail and will be examined a» |o hi* sanlt >
This evening the excitement over the <•■.
sanlt on Governor Cleveland had largely
abated. The condition of Mrs.
ftootie, who has Wen suffering
from hysteria since her Interview with the
Uovernor a week ago, today Is not danger
our- The statement thst she was injure., by
the Oovernor during the Interview is en
tlrely untrue. When he told her he eoiiid
not pardon her brother without Invesligt
tioii, ami that the case nm*| take its course,
Hhe attempted to strike htm In the face He
aeized her by lhe wrist* aud said: "Why,
you poor, foolish woman, why don t you be
have yourself V Mrs. Boone was then led
tan into die anlerotun. where she fell upon
the floor in a At, *he Is not injured further
than siistainliilng some bruises Inflicted on
bersel f during her struggle Fairbanks, for
whom Mrs booue sought a pardon, appears
also to be a crank. The Governor today re
ceived a dispatch from lhe Warden of the
Auburn prison, stating tbat Fairbanks had
been pronounced insane by medical experts
and transferred to the insane department.

Fort Wayne, Ind., Oct. 20.—About 2:30 the
train arrived at Fort Wayne. There was a
large crowd at the depot cud ell aloug the
route to the Avellue House, to which Blame
wis driven. Tbe streets in front of the hotel
and Court Houae Suuare oppmlte, end all
the adjacent* streets were filled wllh a dense
m t** of people. When Blame appeared ou
the h ilcony he was loudly cheered, but from
one portion of the crowd, including a num
ber nf men wearing tall white hats, there
c .me cheers for Cleveland, and wheu Blame
attempted to speak he was interrupted by
shouts, yells end cheers for Cleveland c.ioi
ing In.m the »ame quarter. Therefore he
decllhed to speak from tbe balcony, aud re
entering tbe hotel he left ii again by a side
door and lv company with Chairman New
and Hon. Wm. McKtnley, of Ohio, was
driven up Calhoun street to a point opposite
Library Hall. The great body of the crowd
followed him, and here, standing upon the
driver's seat, he made a speech, as follows:
"Citizens ur Indiana The October clec
lions in Ohio aud Weat Virginia have put a
new phase on the national contest, or rather
tbey have reproduced the old phase. [Good.]
The Democratic party, as of old, cousider
they now have the South solid again. They
believe that they will surely get M
electoral votes from the sixteen Southern
States; and tbeu they expect, or tbey hone,
or they claim, that they may secure Hew
York cud Indiana. (Never! never!) It Is
their dream thst with New York and Ind I
ana added to the Solid South, they will
eelie the Government of the nation. (They
can't dv it! never!) I do not believe that
the farmers, business men, manufacturers,
merchants, mechanics, aud last of all, and
most of all, I do not believe that the soldiers
of Indiana oan b« put to that use. (Greet
cheering, end cries of "never! never!") I
do not believe that lne meu who
added lustre aud renown to your State
through four years of bloody war oin be
used to call In the administration of the
government, men who have organised the
great rebellion. [No, no, neverj In the
Senate of the Cnlted States, the Democratic

aud now thelnteuHow is, with an absolute
ly solidified electoral rote from the South
added to the votes of the two States. I neve
named, to seize the government of the
Union, Thai means a great deal- 4 U means
that as the South lurnlshes three fourths of
tbe Democratic strength it will be given the
lead and control of the nation in the eveut
ofa Democratic triumph. It means that
tbe great fluauclal and Industrial system of
the country shall be placed under the dlrec
lion of the 7 South; lhat our currency our
banks, our tariff, our internal revenue laws
-In short, that our wbolp UMOfl ujh.ii
whleh the business of the country depends
shall be plßOed under Hie control oT that
section. It means that the Constitutional
amendments to whleh (hey are so bitterly
opposed shall be enforced only so far as they
may believe In them: thai the national credit
as guarauieeed In the 14th ameudment that
the payment of pensions to the soldiers of
the Union as guaranteed in the same amend
ment shall be under their control, end what
that control might mean can be measured by
the bitterness with which those amendments
were received by the Democrat* of tiie South.
There is not one measure of banking, of tar
iff, of finance, of public credit, of pensions,
Rot 'am line of administration upon
which the government is conducted to-day
to which the Demo(irats of the south are uot
recorded as hostile and to ijvp [hem coutrol
would mean a ohange thu like of which has
not been known iv modern times, ft would
lie as If the dead Stuarts ware recalled to
the throne of England, as If the Bourbons
should Ite revived to administer the govern
ment of the French republic, as though the
Florentine Duke* should be celled back and
empowered to govern the great kingdom of
Italy. [Good, and cheers.] Such a triumph
would be a fearful misfortune to the
South itself. Coder the wlseadmiuistratlon
of the Government by tbe Republican party
It has been steadily and rapidly gaining for
the past teu years In al] elementsof material
pro-periiy It has added gorgeously to Its
wealth since tbe close uf the war nnd ha-,
shared fully In the general advance of the
country. To call that section now to the
rulershlp of the nation would disturb its own
social aud political economy : would rekin
dle smouldering passion*, and under the
peculiar leadership to which It would be
subjected It would organize an admlnistra
tion of resentment, of reprisal, of revenge.
And no greater misfortune then tbat could
come to the nation or the Soulh. It wonld
some as a reaction against tbe progress of
liberal principles in that section of progress
I am reproached by some excellent people
fur appearing before these multitudes of my
countrymen upon the ground that it Is in
consistent with the dignity of lhe office for
which I am named (No, uo, no, no). ] dun [
feel It to be so. There is not a courtier in
Europe so prssd but that he Is glad
to uncover his head ln the presence ol his
sovereign so I uncover In the presence of

claimed that under the free trade policy, be

her goods, and It was ouly
when the tariff was Imposed that
