Mm Wttm 4 . ! lh ;5 VOL. XVIII.-NO. 12 TEN CENTS. ANARCHISTS AT WORK. President of Franc AnatilnateH, Following is a telegram to the Sionx Joorual: i Toss. Franoe, June 25. President Car 0t was assassinated here last night while on his way to the theater at about -9:30 o'clock by an Italian named Cesare ftiovanm Santo, and died at 13:45. The president was visiting Lyons in oouneotion with the international exposi Una. Uoon his arrival here he was ten dered a reoeption at the prefecture, after .hioh he visited the exhibition. Atter spending some time at the exhibition he prooeeded to the Palais de Commeroe, where a banquet was given in me uouor, it 9:26 last night President (Jaruot start id for the theater, where a gala perform luce was to be given beoause of his presses in the city. Several oarrisges were in tie profession, the first one being ocoo-nied by the president. M. Carnol's car riage was driven slowly along in front of the Palais de Commerce and then turned into the Roe de la Republique, still following the faoade of the palaoe When half way down the street, whioh was lined with enthusiastic orowds of peo Die who were loudly obeering, a man rush ed out of the crowd and sprang upon the ten of the president's landeau. J net at that moment M. Carnot was waving his liizht hand and saluting, with bis bat in his left band, in response to an ovation. People close to Hie carriage saw that the man standing oo the step bad a knife in l is hand. By the glare of the eleotrio lights they saw the bright blade gleam in the air as the assassin's arm deseeuded, aud tbeu President Carnot was seen to fall baca in his seat, his face deathly pale. Oue of his hands was pressed over his heart where the steel had entered bis hod?. M. Eivaud, prefect of Lyons, who was dated beside M. Carnot, immediately struck the assassin a blow fall iu the face and knocked biin from the step, thus pre veutimr the man from stabbing me preai dent again, which it was bis evident in- teutiou to do. Instantly cries of "-e president est as-assin! A mortal I'assnssin!" were heard on every side, and the crowd iu ibe vioinity of the carriage swelled to enormous pro portions, every member of it seemingly iuteut upon killing the assassin. He was grasped by a dozen hands, and his life would then and there have paid for its eiiine. had it not been for several eer geants de viile who seized him aud at waioted to draw him away from his oap tors. This was found to be impossible, as the infuriated popalaoe was determined to lynoh the man and the efforts of the sergeants availed nothing beyond saving in. mn from inatant death. Blows were aimed at his faoe and head over the ehoul ders of the police, who by this time bad received reinforoements, and many of the blowa landed fairly At last the police succeeded in driving the howling mob bsck a foot or so from the prisoner, but to get the captive through the crowd was a physical iropossibili'y. 1q the meantime the newi of the attempted mnrder spread with lightning rapidity and mounted guards were sent to aid the polioa, who were still struggling to preserve the life of the assassin. With drawn sabers the guards rode down into ibe crowd, heedless of whom the borsea trampled upon. The crowd gave way before the horses and at last the center of the mob was reached. Then a oordon was formed aronnd the almost exhausted policemen and captive and the march to the polioe station began. Even thus surrounded the prisoner was not safe, for men in the crowd made frantic endeavors to reach him. The guards repelled these attacks with the flat sides of their swords, while at the same time keeping watchful eves upon the crowd to prevent the pris oner from being shot. Maledictions were hurled upon the captive and never before has such wild indignation against a human being been seen in this city. In the meantime physicians were haeti f summoned to attend the preeilent. who had almost immediately been conveyed to the prefecture, and be died as above noted at 12:4 j. use the English language more and become Americanized. The Germans, some of them, made objection, while a greater number of the younger ones left their uer-man lodges beoause they preferred the EDglish speaking ones.

Montana Pops Divided. Hxlena, June 27. The populist state ennvention whioh meets at Deer Lodge to morrow, will only have two offices to make nominations for arepreientative in ooa cress and an asaomate juitioe oi tne su preme oourt. The great question before the convention will ba that ot insion. ine minority party in the itate want to fuse with the demoorats, the plan being to nominate a demoorat for congress and a poouliBt for associate justice, the demo srati to then nominata at their conven tion the same men. The majority of tbe delegates, however, are believed to favor straight populist nominatians. The convention may express its choioe for candidates for United States senator, bnt this it not probable. The Btate capi tal fight now on between Helena and Anaconda, and which will be determined in November, will cut a figure in the eon vention. In Custody tor Perjury- Dennty U. 8. Marshal Bray brought W. C. Folden down from Lead Monday night and took him before U. 8 Court Commissioner Frank McLaughlin upon a charge of testifying falsely in the Fullerton case at Sioux Falls. He was held in the sum of $500 bonds whioh he could not furnish and ihe ort.imiuary examination was con tinned until Saturday at 2 o'clock. The complainant in the case alleges that Fol Jen testified that ho was in Martm's sa loon, Lead, on a certain date and that Martin was in Kansas at the time and did not own a saloon at Lead. Folden swore he boarded at the Hometake hotel with Sam Roy and it has beau show that at the time Sam Roy had been dead thirteen months. He also testified that ne was in Lead when the Fullerton aocident hap pened and oomplainant has proven that he (Folden) was in Pennington county at the time. Serious Accident. R. W.

The suff irer was at once Lkn to his room in the Anthony block and Dr. Howe and Bjwmao summoned, .ho in a short tim bad the patient real Liu eaav and b th limbs encased in plaa V - terparis. Il was al first reporied that in addition to the broken liujhs, internal m ir had happened. Aa examination by tbe pLiysiciaus fntljJ to suj that such was the case. As to bow the accideut happened, Mr Keating, in oharg-s of the barn, says that Cooper came there between and 6 p. na-. . in ,t- !,., loft a he usually aaa wii w v - . didtogetaomesljeo.

He lost no time in going down and there found Mr. Cooper suffering from tbe injuries mentioned, which will lay him op for several months. He certainly had a very narrow eacapa from death. Republicans at Denver DiKTia, June 27. Chairman Carter ar rived today but most discretely held aloof from the league delegates. He felt a delicacy in appearing before them, as his official connection is with another branch of tbe party o-ganixation. Chairman Manly of the executive committ-je of the national association is advising i h the league of ficers. The story is afloat that Carters position is insecure. Efforts are making to remove biin as national chairman. The executive committee of the nation al leacue held a I -ng session today. The silver question vexes them. The Colorado members declare that the success of the U'e campaign this fall depends on the action of the convention. The Ohio pull for the convention is d dared to be a scheme to sdvanoe McKiu- ley's presidential boom and some of the other candidates are awakening to an op position to Cleveland O., as the neit place of meeting. The young republican u very muoh in evidence in Denver just now. The league idea seems to be suited to his eutbusiastio nature and as a delegate to the national republican league convention b has an oooortuui'y to express quite Jolly con siderable of his sentiments and display his enthusiasm. The delegates have been arriving since Saturday and more .re reported on the road. The hospitality of tbe city has been severely tnied to comfortably accommo date tbe delegates, as many failed to se oure quarters iu advance and some delega uous brougut more people than tney bad announced. However, tbeie will be no disc jm fort. Diamond Dick'a Wild West Show P. C. Mattox, of perpetual motion fame whose stage name is "Diamond Dick," was in the city yesterday from bis borne, Piedmont. He has been engaged the past few months securing material for his Wild West Show," with whioh be eipeots to embark about the middle ot text month. He has collected a great many relics of tne west, which are always of in terest to the unsophisticated people of the east, and says he is going to have as irood a show as Buffalo Bills, which is of the same order. His outfit is not together vet. bot can be gathered in a ehort time. It consists of large band wagon, a stsge coach which was used between Cheyenne and Deadwood in the days of road agents and Indians, a large carnage, three wag one. 38 horses, 16 men. 10 Indiaus and I irirls. Tbe show will travel entirely over land and make its first appearance at Chadron for a week's stand. From there it will take an eastern course and tbe mau- aeement intends to confine his travels to the eastern and southern states, speudiLg the winters in the south. The outfit does not perform in a tent, but has a cauvas wall or enclosure twelve feet high, wuo nothing but the azure sky above. "Dia mond Dick" has had a number oi years experience in the circus basinees and as sures us he will have a better show man the average circus.

Abont two weeks ago it was determined bv the Elkhorn management to build the road from the eattle yards near Belle Fonrche up tae valley of Middle creek to a point opposite the mouth of Oak creek, eight miles distant. This was decided a -on at the solicitation of tbe cattlemen out in that section, who claimed to have greet difficulty in getting their herd, to the Middle creek shipping pens on account of the location, and furthermore that the st. ck shrank perceptibly and quite a loss was entBiled from tbe scarcity of feed atd water.

At the recent meeting of tho directors and principal stockholders of the above oompany a large amoont of business was transacted, of interest not alone to the company bot to the Black Hills in gen r-a1, chief among which was the decision to double the capacity of their works by the erection of a cyanide plant capable of treating 100 tons per day, plans and spe cifications for which are now nearly com pleted. The crushing capacity of the present chlorinatiou works will be increased by the addition of a new building now under construction, to accommodate new sets of rolls and screens. The ma chinery, tanks, etc., for the cyanide plant will in all probability be furnished by the tarns 6rm that supplied them to the Black Hills G. A 8. Ex. M. & M. company, tr. Taylor, secretary of the latter compauy, having furnished their address to Harris Franklin, president of the Golden Reward oompany, a few daj s ago. It is not yet known whether tho MdArthnr-torrest process will be adopted iu the new works or not. Experiments wera made last fall by the Golden Beward company relative to the precipitation of mineral from the cyanide solution to or on copper plates by means of electricity, the test was on a small scale bot proved eminently sat- ief actory. Should this methodlbe adopted it will revolutionize the cyanide process in the Black Hills at least, as by it the zinc shavings used in the McArthnr-Forrest are entirely done away with, thus reduc ing the cost of treatment to that extent The Golden Beward company have an im mense reserve supply of ore in their vari ous mines, carrying gold and silver in al most equal proportions, none of which the oompany have attempted to treat in iu chlorinaiion plant from the fact that the cold only coold be recovered by that method. To the conservative and able management of the affairs of the oompany by its president, Harris Franklin, and sec retary. C. W. Carpenter, the splendid buo cess and profitable results a-e mainly due Tbe mines controlled by tbe ootrpany have an unlimited supply of pay ore m sight, and instead of diminishing as the work progres es on them, the shoots be come larger aud better defined.
