Today's Trial of the Insolent

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
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

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
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?
after the explosion the street was
crowded with frightened men and
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

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:

This morning he received a letter warn

against Ravachol and that the next
twenty-four hours would be his last.

been made to blow up the court room.
The panic tonight throughout the city

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. _

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,

March. 'lßßß, 1300,000 in bonds were sold

the city a cent. The revenue from
water rents will meet the bonds, and

■ 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

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. In
answering the charges In the Uepubli

of the evidence and. as a grand juror j
who had more power than any one con- j
nect d .'ii the case, If he had know
of any criminality on the part or Dem- I
ocratic officials could have had them
indicted and tried for the crime. .Still
lie sit there in that convention, and by
his silence, endorsed those lying reso
lutions. 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. The chairman called attention
to the last day of registration and an
nounced that the next meeting would
take place at Ayd's ball, 10*'.» West Sev
enth, this (Tuesday) evening. There
will also he a meeting at C. S. P. S. halt
Friday evening, and one at tin- Seven
corners the latter end of the week. Mon
day evening there will be an open air
meeting to close the campaign in a
blaze of glory.
Vituperation the Stock-ln-Trado
of Republican Speakers.
F. P. 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. Peterson, the Democratic nominee
for ward alderman, was present and
spoke. He was well received— indeed,
the reception given, the, whole of the
Democratic ticket bodes well for its
success... |^Il|H_<_fSf| iSfSßjjj

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 \

period under Democratic domination. J

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.
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. The Democratic com-

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
"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

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
