SLAIN BY ANARCHISTS A Paris Restaurant Wrecked by a Bomb and the Pro prietor Killed. The Restaurateur's Wife Is Crazed by the Shock and Others Injured. Ravachol's Arrest Occurred in the Establishment Blown Up. Today's Trial of the Insolent Dynamiter May Develop Sensations. Pa nis, April 25. The restaurant of M. Very, who on March 30 delivered Ravachol, the anarchist, into the hand, of the police, was utterly wrecked at 4 o'clock tonight by a bomb explosion. Tne force of the explosion was terrific and widely felt, and an enormous crowd quickly gathered about the mattered building*. The police, on entering, found M. Very lying on the floor of tin- restaurant In the midst of heaps of debris.groaning with fright and pain. On.- of bis legs had been broken and he was sent to a hospital, where the leg was amputated, M. Very dying shortly after. A grand daughter of M. Very was also injured, and two ladies living In rooms over the restaurant wero badly shaken an I bruised. Very's wife was not injured, but she has lost her senses owing lo the severity of the shock bin- suffered and is raving like a maniac. At this hour(lO:'iQ a. m.) firemen are clearing away the ruin-.. Fortunately the damage done is almost entirely con fined to the building In which Very's restaurant was located. A detachment of troops is keeping clear the roadway before the ruined cafe. To Terrorize Jurymen. It is the general opinion that the ex plosion was perpetrated mainly to ter rorize the jurymen who will be oil duty at Ravachol's trial. The police have a theory that the bomb was thrown into the basement of the building through a grating. A policeman who was on duty just outside the restau rant when the explosion occurred was thrown to the pavement by the shock. He stated that in- saw nothing suspicious. M. l.''/e. the prefect of police; M. Goron, chief of the municipal police, and M. bayard, secretary of the ministry of the interior, arrived on the scene goon after tin- explosion. A quantity of goods lying exposed in front of an adjoining shop was de stroyed. Three persons have been ar rested on suspicion of being implicated in the murderous affair. Out- of them shouted "Vive I'anarchle" on being taken into custody. The news of the explosion quickly spread throughout the city, creating consternation, especially on the boule vards, where exaggerated reports of the affair were current. Detachments, of police hurriedly formed a coition in the Boulevard Magenta, on which, at the corner of Rue Laucry, Very's restaurant is located. Ex pectins I lie Worst. In this city and in St. Etienne re newed arrests of anarchists are taking place. Stringent precautions are being taken at the palais de justice to prevent any manifestation being made tomor row by the anarchists during the trial of Ravachol. Few applications are be ing made lor seats, as the people are fearful of dynamite outrages being per petrated in th.i court room, and deem it Mild to remain away while the pro ceedings are going on. It has been de cided by the authorities that the trial will last only one day. even if it is tumid necessary for the court to sit all night to finish the ease. It is not known what course the anar chists will pursue, but it is feared that some of them may in some way gain admission to the court room, and throw a bomb. So many dynamite outrages have been perpetrated in spite of ail the precautions of the police, that the public is willing to believe that the anarchists will try any scheme, no mat ter how desperate, to prevent llavachol from being punished. It Is certain that none of the judges Is at all anxious to preside at the trial, as the anarchists have threatened vengiance against the judge who sentences him. The Eclair today publishes a letter, signed by a number of Ravachol's friends, addressed to the jurors who will sit in the case. The letter appeals to tne jurors to observe impartial fair ness, ami declares that Ravachol's acts of vengeance were justified by the criminal attitude of Judge Renoltand Public Prosecutor Unlet at the trial of the Clichy anarchists. The Eclair also publishes the text of an anarchist proc lamation which has been secretly printed, with a view to Influencing the municipal elections, which will be held May l. Tins is a violent manifesto, ad vocating neutrality in the elections, which are denounced as a bourgeois fatce. Twelve Pounds of Dynamite. The bomb contained at Itast twelve pounds of dynamite and completely wrecked the establishment The ex plosion occurred when the wine shop was half full of guests, and as nearly as can be learned the bond) was placed just within the outside door of the cor ridor and at the door leading from the corridor into the wine room. M. Very was standing iv the middle of the room when the shock same. He was thrown against the wall in a heap of shattered tables ami chairs. The ceiling fell and several beams were split and fell to the floor. M. Very was in a pitiable condition. Both of his legs had been crushed by the falling beams, his collar bone fract ured and right arm broken. His little boy was found unconscious In a corner with his collar bone broken. Of the other ten persons injured three were taken to the hospital and the others were helped to their homes by the po lice. Nix of them are said to have boues broken and internal injuries. Blown to Splinters. Half of the front of the wine shop was blown out. the stairs of the lower two stories were smashed to splinters, and not a door or a window in the house was left whole. The floor in the corridor was blown away. The chandelier was twisted and hurled into a corner, and where the ceiling and walls were split, the plaster was taken off as if scraped with a knife. .The buildings on each side of the wine shop were damaged from top to bottom. Half of the furni ture was broken and all the glass shat tered. The whole block around the wine shop was rocked by the explosion and the walls were started so that they cracked or bulged. The neighborhood is thickly populated, and five minute? SAINT PAUL MINN., TUKSIiAY MORNING, APRIL 26, 1592. after the explosion the street was crowded with frightened men and women. An extra force of police was si rn moned. and an e.. or i was made to in duce the people to return to their homes. The effort was fruitless for some time, and women and children blocked the sidewalk", crying ano* wringing their hands. Later men began carrying out the most valuable possessions and prepared to move their families to other part* of tin- city. Much of the patronage of the win.- shop was local, and families In the neighborhood fear that Havachol's friends have marked it for destruction. A waiter who was taken to the hospital says M. Very has received no fewer than fifty or sixty threatening letters from an archists since Kaurchol was arrested. Due of them, found by the police in M. Very's desk In the wrecked shop, reads: Bevenarc Threatened. .Sir: You bave dxred to betray Kavacbol. Beware. You will learn a hat his friends can do.

L' He rot, the waiter, who assisted in the arrest of llavachol, was not at the shop when the bomb exploded, and It i.i thought that he baa fled from the city. This morning he received a letter warn ing him that he would not live to testify against Ravachol and that the next twenty-four hours would be his last. The rumor Is abroad that an attempt will be made to assassinate M. Quesney de Beauprarie, the prosecutor general. on bis way to court tomorrow. His residence is guarded within and with out tonight. Policemen are in the corri dors on every floor and detectives patrol the street on which his house stands. M. Athaliu, the examining magistrate in the case, is similarly guarded, The trial tomorrow will lie held in an at mosphere of panic, for the police have been warned that preparations have been made to blow up the court room. The panic tonight throughout the city surpasses anything that has been ex perienced since the outrages began. The arrest of llavachol, which evi dently was the direct cause Of the ex plosion described above, took place March 30 at M. Very's wine shop. LICKED UPTsY FLAMES. Smith & Far we I I'm Magnificent minimi- Store Completely Gutted by Fire Last .Night. Firemen Labor Under Great Diffi culty, and the Loan In Placed at About $10,000. Smith & Harwell's four-story furni ture store was gutted by fire last even ing, and the loss is little less than total. This firm had recently enlarged its quarters so that it occupied Nos. 137, 139 and 141 Kast Seventh street, and last week had an "opening." It was one of the most extensive establishments in the city, and the stock included house furnishings of all descriptions. The tin- department did admirable execu tion. There are few commodities more combustible than furniture, with its coating of heavy varnishes, and the flames made persistent headway, despite the deluge sent in by the department. Shortly after the lire was discovered a carriage was sent to the residence of Mr. Smith, the senior member of the firm, and he was hurried to the scene of the conflagration to find that his property was almost ruined, He claimed that the calamity is more serious because of the season it is now that people are making leases, removing and settling for the coining year, and that is why tapestries, car pets, furniture and furnishings are in active demand, and a prosperous sea son has just begun, and Mr. Smith has no doubt that the sales would have been much greater the coming few months than ever before. The lire broke out in the rear of either the lirst floor or the basement and ran up the elevator shaft and stairways, but seemed to miss the two intervening floors, and confined itself to the top and bottom floors. The roof was burned off, but the tire did comparatively little damage to the building otherwise, prob ably not to exceed t&OOO. The build ing is owned by the Hale estate. The stock on the ground floor, which was the main sales floor, as well as that on the upper floor, is _\ Total Liia>, but there will he some salvage on the carpels, upholstery and furniture on the second and third floors. Mr. Smith, of the firm, says the stock was worth 140, --000. and insured for 925.000, and Chief Jackson estimates the loss on stock at from 00 to 75 per cent, so that 935,000 to $40,000 will cover the entire loss on building and stock. ■* The network of electric wires in the neighborhood interfered with the suc cessful operation of the ladders and water tower, and they were finally cut. During the operation a fireman .named Murray, from No. -.', received a severe shock from one ot the wires. Another fireman, named Thomas, was nearly suffocated by the smoke while at work on a ladder near the top of the build ing. -.. The fire was discovered at 10:30 by Officers Lawson and Brown, who sen) iu the alarm, and only a few minutes had elapsed before the engines from the central and from Nos. 1 and 2 stations were on the scene. Chief Jackson saw at a glance that the fire was of a serious nature and turned in a general alarm, winch brought all the apparatus to the tire. Every available piece of hose in the department was pressed into service and in a short time numer ous streams or water were playing upon the building. Despite the efforts of the firemen the fire gained headway until it burned through the roof, anil lit up the entire block between Broadway and Pine streets on Kast Seventh. It did not require "much labor to .subdue the flames in the lower part of the building, but they - hart shot up the elevator shafts, and were spread over the entire floor. '.. Lad ders were lifted to the windows, but the firemen could not endure the awful heat, and worked under the greatest difficulty. After a while, however, the water that was poured continuously upon the root began to have effect, and the flames were subdued al T o'clock this morning. _ Rain and Crops*. "", : ',-„" 5 :. Fakgo, M.

A RATTLING BURST. First Guns of the City Cam * paign Fired Last Even ; ing. Rousing: Meetings of Citizens in Various Wards of the City. J. C. Michaels Exposes the Hypocrisy of the Repub lican Party. T. D. O'Brien's Slashing: Ex pose of the Notorious Manifesto. : The Democrats of the Eighth ward Inaugurated their campaign in a ratifi cation meeting at the hall corner of University and Western avenues. Rio-ring speeches were made by As sistant Corporation Attorney .Michaels. John li. 1-. ■-, William Rodgers and others, while Or. llirsh delivered a telling address in German. Mr. Rodgers was chosen chairman, and Patrick Mc- Hugh secretary. Mr. Rodgers, In open ing the meeting, sounded the key note of the campaign He declared that be was proud of Robert A. Smith, and pursued that the major is absolutely incapable of doing a wrong to any man. He is generous, kind-hearted, philan thropic and friendly to the common Interests of the citizens, Heisespecially admired and esteemed by li** intelligent industrial classes, whom he lias always befriended. Mr. Itogers said he could not Kay so much lor the opposite candidate. .No doubt lie is n hue gentleman and all that, but lie nil never associate with the common peo pie, save when he i-> looking tor votes, lie would not greet a man in ihe hall on equal terms because of his aiistocratit i proclivities because he Is of the silk stocking order. Mr. Pager stated the purpose of the meeting. it was to rat ify the acts of the Democratic city con vention, ami when he paid further tribute' to Mayor Smith his remarks were greeted with cheers. The ticket, he said, is composed of men who battle In the Interests of the whole people, ami not in the Interests of classes. That la the record of the Democratic party iv St. Paul, ami he pointed with pride to the city institution-, that have been per fected under genuine Democratic doini muioii. The police force, cried, is the best in the world. :'T say this without a fear of contra diction," be pursued. "1 have trav eled a great deal, ami I know that we have the best police protection in the world.' If a "crook" comes to St. Paul tii do any work, lie la spotted before lie gets fifty feet from the union depot. If, he-counuil.3. a crime, he has mi oppo: In lit-j ,*>r committing a second so long as .rol'n Clark and .John J. O'Connor arc on the force.'' » Mr. Michaels was next Introduced. He referred- to his pledge in the same i hall two years ago, that, it the Demo -1 era tic party violates a faith by refusing to carry out the principles of the plat form adopted by the convention, be would renounce the parly. He Was hap i py in knowing that every faith had been implicitly kept, and he was ready* to it-new the pledge, lie deprecated abusive speeches, and said thai none would be indulged in. lie would not question or impugn the motives of the opposition. The object of the gather ing was to review the course of the offi cials the past two years, and not to em ploy epithets and disgraceful language such its the other party in dulges in. If the Democratic part) can't make a good accounting for the two years, turn them out, but lie would challenge any. one to point to a dishonest act committed by the admis irhtiou. The press has advertised St. Paul as a sink of iniquity, and said it is given over to thieves and to corrupt classes. These statements have been cdpied throughout the country, and m cificulable injury has been marked, the worst with one exception in the history of Ho- city, and that was the census infamy. Mr. Michaels read the peculiar platform of the Republican party, ami challenged the issue. It impugns every, officeholder, and pronounces him a handler by Implication. It says the officeholders have stolen $."",000,000 from the city, and Mr. Michaels proceeded to- show that the imputation is a malicious lie. Be asked what the peo ple must think of a party that attempts to. ride into power upon such an In famous platform. From 1888 to IV under the rule of the so-called publican reform council, |2,|40,000 in bonds were issued. In March. 'lßßß, 1300,000 in bonds were sold for. the water works extension, ami 150, --000 toe the city and county hospital, and $35,000 lor Lake Couio boulevard. The water Works bonds ami the school bonds should not be considered In the city debt The water works will never cost the city a cent. The revenue from water rents will meet the bonds, and ' none of 'the taxpayers will pay a cent. " .'The speaker spoke of the efficiency of the. police and fire departments, and 'then, he reviewed the candidates. 'When Richard McNaiuee and J.J.Ryan wtre mentioned, the audience gave a spontaneous outburst and cheered to tin* echo, revealing the temper of the ward concerning the labor candidates. : : Mr. Michaels directed attention to the ; eijitbr-hour-a-day system given by the I Democrats. He spoke if Mayor .Smith generosity, and showed that the mayor ctr«s twice over his salary to deserving poor every year, and then a picture was drawn of Wright the Prohibitionist, Wright the Republican and Wright the citizen. Dr. ilirsch was introduced* and spoke in German; then the indomitable cam paigner .John 11. Ives followed. He provoked a mighty wave of enthusiasm by reciting his experiences of the con tinued efforts to get prohibition in this state. FIFTH IX LIXIi T.D. O'Brien Shows Up the Falsity ; of the Republican Platform. ■ Through a misunderstanding of the place of meeting ' the opening of the campaign in the Fifth ward was not so largely attended as is usually the case -in that section of the city. but. before ; Ibe speaking" was. half over, the hall was well filled with a representative audi ence.. The meeting was opened by William Koch, who was made perma nent chairman on motion of Moritz Heim. Charley Ring waid was elected secretary. * The chairman explained the "cause of confusion in regard to the place -of meeting, and introduced the speaker of the evening, Thomas D. O'Brien. Mr. O'Brien dissected the Repub lican . platform as adopted by the i ; late convention. • In a clear and .concise manner he snowed how," by the purchase of the water works, the city had expended two mill ' : _ 1 f->^J_»_A-?_^_BHni_n__k---_B_n_M__HH_MPfiSHi ion of that five million there Is j so much talk about, and staled that at the present lime the works were self-supporting and realiy earning a dividend for the ci- St. I Paul today was enjoying the best water of any city in the country, and to this fact was due. in a targe measure, the healthful condition of the city. An other portion of this money there is so much hue and cry about was expended in the building of railroad crossings for ' the protection of the lives of our citi tens, and who would object to this ex penditure, especial!*-' when it is consid ered that these same crossings must oe crossed every day by our little ones on their wav to and from BCbOOI ami it is their only protec tion from au accidental death. Another large slice was used in building the splendid sewer system throughout the city, and the remainder was put into school houses. The speaker explained how, by an act of the legislature, the school board had been made part 'if the municipality and the entire floating in debtedness ot that board had been made a part of the debt of the city, wnlch had not been the case before this act was passed, as the board of educa tion was then a separate institution and not under the control ot the city.

He defied any member of that Republican convention to prove any of the Democratic nominees a thief, In the nomination of Robert A. Smith the Democrats had one of the noblest men in the city, of St. Paul and a man who was always the friend of the masses and had " been for the past thirty years. During the speaking William Banholzer, the next city treasure! ot St. Paul, entered the ball and was greeted with enthusiastic cheers. Morit/ Helm made a short address on the present ad ministration and discussed the ticket In general, giving the voters some good advice.

Wright was the lirst speaker at the Twin City ball last night. Asa matter of fact he had little of moment to say other than to declare in favor of turning the gang out The meeting was picturesque in expletives, and Mayor Smith was roasted to a turn. I*. J. Dreia was there, 100, and he promised to remain in the field until the polls close. He explained that he had promised his Democratic supporters in the city convention that he would not run independent it be should be de feated for the regular nomination, but he denied that he is running independ ent. He is the candidate of a parly. J. llaiiim Davidson followed with a vituperative speech. He cried for crush ing out "the damnable ring that i choking out the life of the city," aud said that very little building i-> being done in the city because of the dominion of the ring. Since Fred Wright has been nominated, preparations have been made for a large amount of build ing, but the speaker Insisted that the improvements will be abandoned in the case the people do not turn out the gang, lie jumped upon Mayor Smith with both feet, and pronounced him the biggest disgrace as an oflicial thai St. Paul has ever suffered; but he did not confine himself to municipal politics. lie went into county and state affairs, and had a great deal to say about spe cial assessments and taxes. He said lie \ had paid nearly MOO himself in special assessments. "Mr. Schriber spoke in the same tone as did others. The air was surcharged with vituperation and ugly sounding epithets. Roused the First Warders. There was rousing Democratic meet ing last evening in the First ward. The gathering took place in Turgeon's hall, Payne avenue.and was presided over by Hugh Campbell. Gilbert Olson was called upon to perform the secretarial duties. Stirring addresses were deliv ered by C. D. O'Brien, P. K. Ives, Dr. Oscar Fliesburg and Dan AberJe. J. D.

I More Money Spent During: the Two Years of the Re publicans. Heavy Republican Registra tion Frauds in the First Ward. Outsiders Denounce That Ly ing Republican Platform Slander. Out-dde of its vile slanders of the city covernment generally then-cent Kepub lican platform contained a statement winch, robbed of its billingsgate and abase, i-'-ar»» n t*i • robbery of some to.uuo.uuj during the past five years. This statement has been harped and played upon by the Republican organs - both mouth ami printed and has formed the only possible weapon in the hands of the boomers of the hybrid ticket. This statement seems to have been made by the hot-headed and ex cited Republicans with utter getful ness of the fact that during two of the past live years they were in power In the council, the only body which had authority to spend one dollar of the pub lic money. It might be of interest to look up the records and ascertain whether public expenses were not [ ' larger during the brief term of Itepub j \ licit 1 1 control than for the corresponding I period under Democratic domination.

There never has been a reckless squan dering of the public fund-, as every tax payer well knows, and there has never, in the long course of Democratic con trol of St. Paul, been a single cent mis appropriated or one dollar lost through the dishonesty or corruption of a pub lic official. This is a record which can be equaled by but a very few cities of the country, and is a record which tic- fair-minded and patriotic Repub licans should join the Democrats iv ex ploiting, instead of circulating through out the country an infamous, lying docu ment that will make St. Paul a by-word and a laughing stock. REGISTRATION It IDS. Republicans Stuffing the Rooks in the First Ward. The Republican committee and or gans have raised a great cry over al leged frauds by the Democrats In the registration. It now transpires that this cry was raised for a specitic pur pose. The Republicans have set up the yell of "Stop thief" to cover up their own rascality. It lias been discovered . that a well-planned -•• stem of fraudu- • lent registration has been going on in the First ward, and that hundreds of fraudulent . names have been placed by the Republicans on the registration books. The total registration in that i ward is now nearly 500 in excess of the ; vote cast there last election: and this, \ too, in the face of the fact that a great many voters have left the ward since that election.

Tin- View of Travelers on i In- Re publican Platform "If, I were a citizen of St. Paul 1 would vote regardless of party to rebuke the men who are guilty of giving tin city th black eye th.it the Republican platform makers did In the resolution* which were adopted .i* their convention last Thursday," lid T. 1,. French, the well-known banker of Wahpeton, N. D.. at the Merchants' last evening. "Anil sit would I," rem irked John A. Bowman, formerly a banker at Detroit, Minn., and now one o| tlm principal owners of the Dulutli .V Winnipeg rail way. "1 am surprised thai there Is a paper iii the city that support)) a ticket running on mcli a platform. I know [Job Smith, and I know that a better ami more honest man was never made mayor of a city like M. Paul." "Well," remarked W. A. Parr, the well known attorney of this city, '-then Is one good tiling about it all, and it li that the ticket nominated on that tissue tit slanders will be snowed out ot sight at the election." [I is sale to say that the credit and standing of St. Paul was never before in its history dealt such i blow. A falsehood travels so much more rapidly than the truth that the entire country is already talking about the terrible condition of St. Paul. In Minnesota and the Dakota*, where the excellent standing of St. Paul j. well known, but little damage has been done, but in more distant states, where the people are not acquainted with the wild desire of a gang of local schemers to get into office, this tissue of falsehood ami cal umny is destined to do ureal injury to the city's interests. F.veiy visitor to St. Paul remarks that tin* city is in a direful condition if the Re publican platform is true. A good illustration of the way this is regarded outsiue was given by Senator M. 1.. MacCormack.of ('rami hoiks. yester day afternoon in a short talk at ihe Meichants'. "We cannot understand the way St. Paul people have of lighting their local political battle-, he said. "With us th<* party hat would attack the credit of the city as the Prohibition-Republican combination has done here would not find themselves 'in it' very largely at the election. I always had the impres sion that St. Paul is a pretty good city, well governed and prosperous. 1 know it has all the Improvements thai go to make a city, but either 1 have been mistaken or the Republican platform is false." This feeling among the people from outside the city is a fair hides of the sentiments of the people of St. Paul. On every hand staunch Republicans can be found who do not hesitate to de nounce both Col. Wright and platform. They are found among all classes of the people from the humblest toiler to the business man and capitalist. Opposi tion to the Prohibition — Republican ticket and platform is placed on tho ground of loyalty to the fi- and the people of St." Paul have more than once in the past demonstrated that at times like this they do not recognize paity lines. Due of tin- most prominent ofh cials of one of tiie railway lines which centers fti this city, whose name, by the way. is withheld 'for that reason, said yesterday : "I am a Republican, but 1 will not vote for Col. Wright because of the platform upjii which he is making his canvas--. To my mind a vote for him is a vote to Indorse that platform, and scatter It broadcast all over the country that St. Paul is a badly governed ami bankrupt city.
