Many others were Injured. The following «re the killed: CAPTAIN BAROSSA, commanding part cf the king's escort. LIEUTENANT RETSINET. LIEUTENANT PRENDERGAST. SIX SOLDIERS. THH MARQUISE OF COLOSA. HER DAUGHTER. DON ANTONIO CALVO. HIS NIECE, aged 6 years. JOSE SOLA, 7 years of age. LOUIS FONSECA. One royal groom, who was leadr ing one of the horses drawing the coach carrying the king and queen. Several of those killed wcro standing on the balcony of the house from which the bomb was thrown. The explosion occurred Just as the royal couple were about to enter the palace. The route ot the cortege had been diverted from Arsenal street to Mayor street, owing to the popular de sire. 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, stunnlr.g a large number of people and throwing the cortege into confusion. The royal coach was brought to a sudden atop by the shock, officers and soldiers of the escort falling to the ground about the equery and horses that had been killed. The screams of the terrified multi tude mingled with the groans of the dying, i It was immediately seen that the royal coach was intact except as it had been damaged by flying splinters. .King Alfonso immediately alighted and assisted Queen Victoria out of the carriage. They then entered another coach and were driven swiftly to the palace. All of this happened so quickly that people away from the immediate vi cinity were not aware of the tragedy and , continued to acclaim their sov ereign. Soon, however, there appeared the ■ empty royal coach with horses missing and the others spattered with blood. The grooms and drivers looked deathly -pale in their spangled uni forms. 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' bomb, which waa concealed in a bouquet, was of polished steel, half a centimeter thick. It was thrown from a third floor window. The house, ac cording to some reports, belongs to the , queen mother, having been be queathed to her by a philanthropist and being the only house she owns In Madrid. Kills Horses and Groom The house is opposite the Church of the Sacrament and the captain gener al's residence. The royal procession had come to a temporary stop with the royal , carriage exactly opposite the house when the bomb was thrown. The missile fell to the right of the royal carriage, between the hindmost pair of horses and the front pair of wheels. The explosion killed two horses and a groom. The. Duke of Solomayer, who was riding on the right of the carriage, was slightly wounded. ■ The scene of the tragedy presented a i horrible spectacle, with dead men and horses lying about literally torn to • pieces. Intense excitement pre vailed, the mob invading the streets while the forces of the guards sought to maintain order and block the ap proaching streets. • The bodies were wrapped up In blankets and removed on litters, while the wounded were taken to hospitals In ambulances. The pavement was lit erally covered with blood and the up per stories of the buildings nearest were spattered with it. The place from which the bomb was thrown is a boarding house. The chamber' from which the missile was hurled was taken May 22 by a man from Barcelona giving the name of Moral. When the police surrounded the house the man attempted to flee, but was captured. Another man es caped over the roofs of the houses. The great arches and naves, usually sombre, were lighted up by thousands of electric lights which lined the cor nices and framed the marble altar with an aureole of light. At the left of the altar arose a throne •upon ■ a dais, over which hung a ma jestic canopy of light silk, exquisitely wrought with gold embroideries. At the back of the throne flared the arms of Spain. oTwo richly gilded armchairs of mar velous workmanship occupied the dais. S ; One of the oldest pianos in America.

As the royal couple entered the as semblage arose and two hundred chor isters intoned a processional hymn. The king looked calm, happy and slightly pale, as usual. - Across the breast of his field marshal's uniform was the blue and white sash of the or der of Charles 111, and on his breast sparkled the orders of the Garter and of the Golden Fleece. Bride Enters With Mother The bride entered with her mother, brother and Queen Christina, tho sil vered embroidery of her wedding dress reflecting the myriad of lights until the bride seemed to be robed in Jewels. Her veil, slightly drawn aside, revealed her clear, fine features, with cheeks full of youthful color. The king advanced to meet the brido and they stood together as the marriage service began. The ceremony was per formed with all the impressiveness of the Roman ritual. Cardinal Sancha, archbishop of Toledo, robed In crimson silk, officiating, assisted by. a special nuncio of the pope and tho highest dignitaries of the church, with scores of acolytes and incense bearers. Ceremonies Last an Hour The ceremonies, which lasted nearly an hour, terminated with the nuncio pronouncing the pope's benediction on the newly married couple, and the chanting of the te deum. As the king and Princess Victoria ■were pronounced man and wife, the news was signaled to the waiting crowds and all Madrid broke into fran tic demonstrations of joy, while can non boomed and church bells chimed. KING AND PRINCESS ARE JOINED IN HOLY BONDS OF MATRIMONY MADRID, May 31.— The marriage of King Alfonso and Princess Victoria fina was celebrated today. King Alfonso and his bride left the church at 12:80 p. m. The announce ment of the wedding by the firing of artillery salutes was wildly acclaimed by the people. The city awoke today under a cloud less sky, with dazzling sunshine adding its glories to the bewildering maze of color In. which tho streets were envel oped. From an early hour the centers pre sented an aspect of extreme animation. The entire night had been passed amid the din of fireworks and singing and dancing and thousands of provin cials, unable to secure shelter, spent the night In cafes and in the streets. At 8 o'clock crowds densely packed the main thoroughfares, and the troops took up their positions, stopping all traffic and the whole city took on an air of feverish expectancy. Guards in Attire The esplanade fronting the royal palace was occupied by regiments of the royal guards in full gala uniform, with glittering breastplates and hel mets. They formed semi-circles, guarding the approaches to the palace from the crowds eager to gain points of vantage. The massive outlines of the palace were without decorations, save the royal standard floating above. De tachments of halberdiers, with quaint cockades, stood with halberds crossod at the princess gate leading to the pal ace courtyard. All along the route of the cortege hurried preparations were going on. Troops lined both sides of the street in solid ranks for miles. The scene from the Puerta Del Sol to the Parlo palace was one of striking brilliancy. All the buildings were re splendent with the yellow and red col ors of Spain, woven Into sunbursts, huge rosettes and graceful streamers looped from roof to roof, and arches of roses from which were suspended enormous flower baskets and trailing vines. The wedding cortege started from the royal palace at 9:30 a. m. amid the ringing of church bells, the firing of artillery salutes nnd the clamorous enthusiasm of the crowds massed along the route. Ahead rode trumpet ers In crimson velvet suits of the time LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, JUNE 1, 1906. of Philip II Bounding the approach of the roynl party. Following them mine the personnel of the royal household, the heralds mounted on stallions from th* royal ftud And capnrlMinifil in oriental style, pach led hy n. cadet of the royn.l rlrtln* academy, nnrt the priiifrries nnd Broom* from th« royal stablps lfddlnK the king's favorite horses with pold em broidered saddles, cloths find rolotvd plumes, accompanied hy poften nnd rid ing mastera and all the bewildering equipment of a luxurious rourt. Next came a long line of gala coaches of the Spanish grandees, each of a dis tinctive color, with panels richly paint ed, glided and jeweled and drawn by magnificent horses In sliver harness adorned with tall plumes matching the livery. I < Within rode the nobility of Spain; the men with their breasts covered with orders and the women In wedding at tire. But the brilliancy of this part of the cortege waa far surpassed when the famous royal gala conches came into view, each drawn by eight superb white horses with golden and silver harness and lofty colored plumage, looking like the coaches depicted on some illum inated page of a fnlry book. These coaches formed one of the moat striking features of the cortege. They were marvels of luxury, some of tortoise shells, others of mahogany, set with panels painted by famous artists —all ornamented with precious metals and emblazoned with the royal in (lgnis. They wore relics of bygone days, when kings and queens rode In golden vehicles, but they had been renovated in all their original splendor for this occasion. The tnont Interesting coaches were the Amaranth coach for the court la dles; the Cypher coach for the lords In waiting; the coach of the ducal crown for the Infantas and the shell coach for the queen mother. As the king*; coach appeared It was greeted by a grent roar, while the mul titude wildly waved hundkerchlefs, fnns and parasols. Ills majesty could plainly be seen smiling and bowing to the pop ular greetings. He woro the uniform of a field mar shal, his hat surmounted by a sweeping white plume. Around his coach was a cavalcade of royal guards, heralds, equerries and pages, holding back the enthusiastic populace. Immediately following the royal coach came the bride's party, forming another glittering array of gala coaches bearing the lords and ladles in waiting and the princes and princesses of the house of Battenberg, and finally came the famed mahogany coach with the radiant bride, Princess Victoria, at tended by her mother and Queen Maria Christina. Bride Receives Ovation The appearance of the princess who was about to become their queen aroused the people to the highest pitch of emotion, men and women cheering and shouting friendly salutations, while others from the balconies of the houses along the route showered flowers on thn princess and let loose hundreds of pigeons carrying long, bright streamers. The bride looked most charming and graciously acknowledged the continued ovations. >•">"":,, As the cortege entered the Puerta del Sol the picture presented was strikingly beautiful, with buildings ablaze with color, the streets packed by a dense mass of humanity, the baclconlea crowded with people, the swarming windows, housetops and trees, and In contrast the stately royal cavalcade deffllng slowly amid the enthusiastic clamor of the populace. On reaching the chamber of deputies the cortege came in sight of the church of St. Jeronimo el Real, which was mag nificently adorned for the ceremony. Over the entrance was suspended an immense canopy of red and yellow vel vet embroidered with Spanish es cutcheons and supported by gold-tipped lances. Awaiting the bridal ' party stood lines of halberdiers and palace guards. Play Spanish National Anthem The massed bands played the Span ish national anthem as the bridal couple, with measured steps, passed within the church. The interior of the church presented a scene of rare beauty as the royal couple entered. One of the Injured proved to be a son in-law of Premier Moret's private sec retary. Stranger Rents Apartment ' According to an official statement it Is not known whether one or more bombs were thrown. The statement continues that It is impossible to ascer tain at present the author of the out rage, although It is known that a Cata lonian named Manuel Duran look an apartment in the house from which the bomb was thrown May 22. paying In advance with a 800 peseta bill. He was well dressed, of elegant appearance and showed a fondness for flowers. Frederick "W. AVhitridge, the Ameri can special envoy, went to the royal palace late this afternoon, where he was assured that the king and queen were ■■ resting quietly, considering the circumstances. The duke of Solemayer's wounds are not serious. Mr. Whitridge also called at the for eign office and on behalf of the United States expressed profound sympathy with the "Spanish sovereigns and people. Horrible Scene Presented The scene in the vicinity of the explo sion was horrible. As the municipal guards hastily improvised litters to bear off the mangled corpses, deusu crowds pressed in upon them, causing indescribable confusion. Soldiers occupied ull the streets lead ing to the locality, making it almost Im possible to reach the Hpot from a dis tance. However, the Associated PreßS correspondent was on tho scene soon after the explosion and received an ac count of the affair from the duke of Veragua and Colonel Rafael de Chague, the officers who assisted Queen Victo ria as she alighted from her coach to take another. The bomb was thrown from above, striking the ground and exploding not far from the royal carriage. One of the Holdlers of the king's escort and two other BOldiers were killed and one of the horses drawing the royal coach was killed, while the injured numbered scores. Bodies Torn to Pieces The bodies of many persons were ter ribly torn by the force of the exploslnn. The news of the attempted assassina tion spreal throughout the city with great rapidity, turning the rejoicings of the people to awe. The telegraph offices were invaded by struggling masses, but a rigid censorship was instituted. The explosion would not have oc curred If the cortege had followed the route originally plunned, but returning it was determined to retrace part of Mayor street and give the people fur ther opportunity to observe the pageant. It was Jn front of 188 Mayor street that the bomb exploded. This in wlihlu hulf a block of the esplanade leading to thn royal palace. WEDDING DRESS IS MADE OF FINEST SPANISH PRODUCTS The wedding dress has : attracted great interest in Bpaln, aa it is truly a Spanish product In fabric and flnlsh, except for the wonderful Brussels laco which had been brought to adorn it. It waa a fancy of the king and the queen mother that the wedding dress should be. made In Spain, and the Prin cess Kna RfaolnnMy fell In with this patriots sentiment. The dress Is, therefore, one of the special presents from tho king and l« a marvel of ele* K.incfl. The silk was manufactured from a sprclnl pattern In one of the large Span ish silk Mtahitohmrnts. tt wns made with nil the nrtlatlc skill of the court dressmakers.

KING AND QUEEN TO RESIDE AT LA GRANJA DURING HONEYMOON The/ cnstle which Alfonso and his queen have chosen for their honeymoon Is in the Spanish Versailles, known as La Granja. It is a quaint nnd quiet spot, far removed from the Inquisitive throngs of the capital and with all the picturesque and romantic surroundings suitable for a royal honeymoon. The palace Is situated at the foot of the Imposing Pico de Panalara in the Guadarrama mountains, high above the sea level. The little village dates from ancient times, when Henry IV built a chapel there and dedicated it to St. Hdefonso. BIG ESTATE GOES TO UNIVERSITY Provisions Are Practically Identical, but Different San Francisco Trust Companies Are Named as Executors By Associated Press. FRESNO, Cal., May 31.— A second and last will of M. Theo. Kearney, the Fresno capitalist who died a few days ago while on his way to Germany for his health, was found this morning at Kearney's castle on his estate ten miles west of here and filed by Attor ney W. K. Harris and Manager Frlzelle of the Kearney ranch this morning. The provisions of the will are practi cally the same as the will discovered in San Francisco yesterday. The prop erty Is left to the University of Cali fornia. Makes Two Wills Mr. Kearney made two wills. The first, writen at the St. Francisco hotel in May, 1004, named the Union Trust company as the executor and also mentioned William F. Alvord as . a trustee. In the second, which was made in November of last year at the Chateau Fresno park, the Mercantile Trust company of San Francisco is named as the executor and the name of Prof. S. W. Hilgard is substituted for that of Alvord. The news that Kenrney had changed his executors did not create much sur prise, for he frequently changed his bankers, as he did his lawyers, and he never assigned a reason for his action. There is no mention made in the will as to where his body shall be burled. Leaves Estate to University ■ Kearney left to the state university property which Is valued by the ex perts at $1,000,000, which yields an enormous annual income. The alfalfa lands yielded a gross annual revenue of $40,000, and the income from the sale of the raisin crop was between $80,000 and $100,000 a year. Kearney spent money lavishly on the estate und careful management will make the net Income much larger. The sum of $60 Is left to any woman who can successfully claim to be his widow. ; , *'.-■. Another sum of $50 is to be given to any child, male or female, who can successfully claim to be his offspring. Special Provisions Made In case tho will conflicts with the provisions of the civil code (section 1313), the following gentlemen will have the joint use of the estate: Win. F. Alvord (now dead), James D. Phelan, W. H. Crocker, John Parrott and Joseph D. Grant. Special letters of administration were granted to the Union Trust com pany this morning by Judge Austin, in accordance with the terms of the first will, 'l'lils was before the second will was filed. ,•, Frank 11, Powers of the firm of Hel ler, Powers & Ehman arrived here last night in behalf of the Union Trust company. When he learned that the lust will had named the Mercantile Trust company as executor of the es tate he wild that there would be no contest. RELATIVES SEEK RENO MINER Fear Entertained That Fred H.
