ifwo Bombs Hurled From the Top
Galle ry to the Floor of the
Lyceo Theater in Barcelona —
One Explodes Among the
Stalls and the Horrible Re
sults Occur.
Bakcii.ona, Nov. S.— A dynamite
bomb thrown by alleged anarchists into
the midst of a crowded theater is the
latest outrage and disaster to be record
ed In Spain, The Lyceo theater, on
the Rainbla de Capuchins, the Italian
opera house, a magnificent building
which is sometimes classed as the larg
est theater in Europe, was filled last
night with a large and distinguished
audience, and it is estimated to have
numbered close ou to 4.000 people. The
opera '•William Tell" was oeinc per
formed for the first time after a long in
terval. While the performance was
proceeding, and the enjoyment was at
its height, two dynamite bombs were
suddenly hurled from the topmost gal
lery into the midst of the stalls on the
floor of the house. One of the dynamite
l)on:bs exploded with a terrible
report, which shook the theater
to its foundations, and which scat
tered death, wounds and destruc
tion upon all sides. The second bomb,
haj pily, did not explode, having fallen
in tne lap of a lady, from whence it
rollt-d harmlessly to the floor. The ex
plosion of the bomb caused a scene of
terror ani confusion rarely witnessed
in a theater. The whole audience rose
\.o its feet with horror and dismay,
hardly knowing what had happened,
the building ringing with shrieks of
fear, cries of pain and exclamations of
vengeance. For a moment the Lyceo
was tilled with smoke and dust, falling
glass and plaster, which caused a
HOKKIBLE, BOABISG DIN',
which added to the horrors of the situa
tion and which frenzied the vast
Budience. The terrified crowd, fearing
that at any moment another bomb
mit'ht be thrown into their midst, com
pletely lost all sense of coiurol, all re
gard tor women and children seemed to
vanish in those moments of fearful
"sauve gui peut," and there was a fear
ful, mad rusn for the doors, men and
women fiercely lighting with each oilier
as they crushed weaker ones beneath
their ft-et in the effort to escape from
the dynamite-shaken thean-r, leav
ing the wounded and dying behind
them, tended only by a few of the
braver ht-ails who remained faithful to
their dear ones. In this mad rush ninny
old people and children were severely
injured through being trampled under
foot, while others were severely bruised
End crushed by the outpouring crowd.
Thus, in a few minutes comparatively,
Hie theater was emptied, except of the
dead ;ti:d injured. The stalls presentee:
R tt-rrible sight; the part where the
Limb exploded was a mass of splintored
Wreckage, amid which lay numbers ot
de;id bodies, some of them so terribly
dangled as to be beyond recognition.
When the wreckage wa.s in some degree
cleared away there were fouud fifteen
De;id bodies, of which six were those of
taeu and nine of the corpses of women.
The Indies of the unior;uMate ladies
lay close together, their bright-colored
evening dresses, laces and jewelry,
gloves, hats and bonnets and other
finery drei.ctied with blood and torn in
the most fearful manner. It is report
ed, soon after the examination of the
dead men, that a large proportion ot the
killed belonged to one family, who had
taken a number of tickets, it is pre
sumed, forming a theater parly in honor
Df the birthday of one of those lying

by the anarchist bomb. At some dis
tance from the fatal spot where the
fifteen dead bodies lay beneath the
Wreckage were eroaiung in agony
many ladies and gentlemen who had
been wounded by splinters of wood.
pieces oi class and fragment*- of iron.
Of those wounded, several were so se
riously hurt that they may not recover
from the effects of the explosion. The
doctors, who had been hastily sum
moned by the police, arrived in quick
succession, ana immediately commenced
a careful examination of t.'ie victims
of this latest horrible outrage on the
part of the anarchists. Then the dead
were removed and laid together, and the
wounds of those who were more se
riously hurt were then attended to by
the physicians. The stairs and cor
ridors were next searched for
dead and wounded people who fell
victims to that terrible rush
lor the doors which followed the ex
plosion. Upon the stairs and in the
corridors three persons were found
lying dead, and a large number of
seriously injured people were picked
up. Throughout the niirht the theater
-was surrounded by a "dense crowd ot
people, who packed the Hambla de Ca
puchins to the utmost, and who were
with difficulty kept back by a strong
l)ody of police. It seemed, trom the
appearance of the streets, that the
whole of the population of Barcelona
was out of doers, and many were the
expressions of
BITTEJiSESS AND INPIOXATIOX
1.0111 ail sides against anarchists. But
while the people are indignant and
madly incensed at the dynamite out
rum-, following so closely "upon the at
tempt made by Pallas to take the life of
CapL Gen. Martinez Campos, there is a
universal feeling of consternation at the
helplessness of the government in this
emergency. All the houses inhabited
by suspects have been searched and
Beveral arrests have been made. Among
the iirst arrests were those of
an Italian named Saldani and a French
man named Aragon. It is presumed
that the actual bomb thrower escaped,
and that the police are simply rounding
up the anarchists' haunts with the hope
el Gliding some ciue to the actual per
petrator of tiie crime. fGen. Campos, as
soon as he was informed of the outrage,
wired to Madrid, and government mes
sages monopolized the wires for the re
mainder of the night. There is still
much uncertainty as to the number of
injured. Among the dead is an Amer
ican named Figueras. Jiis wife was
badly wounded, Out is now progressing
favorably. Mrs. figueras has not yet
been informed of her husband's death,
as her condition does not warrant the
sad news being communicated to her.
The unexpiode.d bomb was found under
a seat, aud is identical with those used
by Pallas, the anarchist.
'J he second act of the opera had just
commenced when the bombs were
thrown, either from the fourth or the
fifth gallery. Fifteen persons were
killed instantly and fifteen others have
since succumbed. Eighty persons are
in a serious condition, some of them
from injuries and others from fright.
The interior of the opera house is badly
v reeked. The killed include a German
named Roggenbiod, an Englishman
i. aiued Rauim and a Frenchman named
ilerdon. Among the injured is a Ger
man named Wicke, who was the repre
sentative of a North American firm.
There are no Americans or Englishmen
among the injured.
The Italian Saldani.wbo was arrested
on suspicion of being responsible far
the outrage, declares his innocence, but
Ins statements are contradictory] and
lie will be kept until further Investiga
lion by the police. Several Spanish
anarchists have been undated on sus
picion that they have Knowledge of the
crime. Mine. Damrini. sister of the
prkua donna of the opera, is -reported
to have been killed : by the explosion;
A number of German-.; - tourists
were in the audience, but none oi
them were injured. Saldani was ar
resteri as he was hastening down' the
staircase from the top gallery just after
the explosion. When lie was taken be
fore a judge he gave vamie replies to
the questions, put to him. The only
definite bit of information that could be
{jot from him was that he was the lead
er of a recent strike of marble workers.
A search was made of his house, but
nothing of a criminating character was
discovered.
At a council of the ministry tonight
special powers were granted to the po
lice to pursue the persons connected
with last night's crime. The new pow
ers conferred are equivalent to the sus
pension of the habeas corpus. It is
now represented thai live of the wound
ed persons cannot recover. A consid
erable portion of the furniture of the
theater was ruined, and the tiecorations
were damaged. The architect has or
liered the iiouse to be temporarily
Closed.
The catastrophe has caused a pro
found sensation throughout Spain. The
authorities of Barcelona art 1 censured
for permitting the perpetration of fre
quent outrages by anarchists or other
lawless persons.
The queen resent is much upset over
this fresh calamity, coming so soon after
tiie Sautander disaster. Additional
anarchists will be arrested tonight.
Later—lt has just been learned that
Saldani has confessed, liis lull name
is Maurice Saldani.

REPUBLICANS ELECT EVERY JUDGE
IN SOUTH DAKOTA.
TWO HAVE A NIRKO V. SQIEKZE
Andrews in the Third and Gartl
nerin the Seventh Slip Through
With Majorities of 150 and
200— No Indications of a Con
test by the Democrats — Hudson
I-iaiikers Sued.
Speoin! to the QloDe.
Hukok, S. D., Nov. B.— South Dakota
Republicans made a clean sweep of the
state yesterday, electing three supreme
court judges, eight circuit court judges
and several commissioners. The con
test in the Third and Seventh districts,
where. the Democrats and Independents
fused, was close, but resulted in the
election of Andrews in the Third and
Gardner In the Seventh by from 150 to
200 majority. The Independents are
greatly disappointed, and take the de
feat bitterly. The vote is tar below es
timates made by leaders, aud not a
single claim *has been realized. This
(Beadle) county, with five precincts to
hear from, gives the Republicans 033,
Democrats 213, and Independents 211.
Abeudeex, S. D., Nov. B.— Brown
county, estimated, twelve distant pre
cincts still unheard from, wiil give the
Republican judicial ticket 100 plurality,
with the exception of Bennett, who
runs behind Potter, Independent, 150
votes. The Republicans elect both their
candidates for county commissioners.
Miller, S. D., Nov. B.— Thirty-three
precincts of forty in the county give the
Republican state ticket 342, Democratic,
56; Independent, 300; Fuller, Rep., for
circuit judge, has 430; Hartley, lnd.,
274. The remaining precincts will give
the Republican state ticket five to
tvventy-flve plurality in the county and
increase Fuller's majority to 175.
Sioux Falls, S. D., Nov. S.— Reports
from all counties in the state show the
Republican state ticket elected by 4,000.
The vote was everywhere light. Jones
is elected judge in this district by 700
plurality. Plowman, Populist, is prob
ably elected in the Black llills. All the
other Republican candidates for circuit
judtre are elected.
Deadwood, S. D., Nov. B.— At the
Eighth judicial district election a very
light vote was cast. The three counties
will not exceed 4,500. Rice, Republican,
has a plurality of twenty over Plow
man, Independent, with twenty Plow
man precincts to hear from, which will
without doubt elect Plowman by a small
majority. The Republican vote for
supreme judges is hi excess of the
oMiers.
Milbaxk, S. D., Nov. B.— lt will
probably require the official canvass to
determine the result on judge in the
Third circuit district. The probabilities
favor Andrews' election by about fifty
majority.
JULIA OX THE STAND.

Special to the Globe.
Duixtth, Minn., Nov. B.— A jury was
secured in the Father Connolly criminal
assault case at 3 o'clock this afternoon.

half an hour. She told with minute de
tails of the six or seven times she al
iened Connolly violated her person. She
said the first time was March 19, by
drugging. The acts contiuued until
May 4. Cross-examination failed to
shake her testimony. The redirect ex
amination was in progress at the time
of the adjournment. The court room
was packed. Many leading ladies of
the city were present and took in un
flinchingly all the salacious details. In
he morning the girl's stepbrother.
Theodore Hannon, will testify.
Hudson Bankers Sued.
Hudsos, Wis.. Nov. B.— The city
council and school board have directed
that suits be commenced against J. F.
Jones, city treasurer, and against J. R.
Ismon, E. J. Matteson and A. J. Goss,
bondsmen, for the recovery of $4,000 of
city funds deposited in the defunct
Hudson Savings bank by tne treasurer.
The suits will be commenced iiume-
diately for the purpose ot establishing

GEN*. RUSK BUTTER.
Doctors Perform a Delicate Oper
ation on the Patient.
Vmjoqua, Wis., Nov. B.— The con
dition of Gen. Rusk, which has given
his family and physicians much anxiety
during the past twenty-tour hours, is
said to be materially improved tonight.
On the arrival of Dr. Hamilton, of Chi
cago, ex-surgeon general of the United
States, this morning, a consultation,
with local physicians was held, and a
surgical operation was decided upon.
The operation was performed during
the afternoon, and at 6 o'clock, when
the correspondent called at the resi
lience, he was assured by members of
"the family that the patient had rallied
from the. effects of the operation, and
was resting comfortably. t ,.
The operation was a delicate one upon
the bladder. Dr. Hamilton expressed
the belief that the general would speed
ily recover. He says the incision was
absolutely essential.
Hansbrough's Private Secretary.
Special to the Globe.
Grand Forks, Nov. B.— Fred L. Dan
nie, who has been Senator Hansbrough's
private secretary and political manager
for a number of years, was admitted to
the bar here last week to practice law.
Mr. Dennie is only an example of many
young men who me by their own
etforts. But a few years ago he was
working on a farm at Mayville, N. D.
While acting as Senator Hansbrough's
secretary he found time to read law and
graduate at the Columbia law school.
In the event of Mr. Hansbrough not
receiving the nomination for United
States . senator four years hence, it is
believed Mr. Deunie will be his choice
to fill that high position. ■
