Tho namo of his assassin Is Angelo
Tho king had been attending a distri-
bution of prizes In connection with a
gymnastic competition. Ho had Just en-
tered his carrlago with his aide-de-camp
amid tho cheers of the crowd whea ho
was struck by threo revolver shots fired
in quick succession.
Ono plorced tho heart of his majesty
who fell back nnd' oxplrod In a few min-
utes. Tho assassin was Immediately arrested
and was with some dlfllculty saved from
tho fury of tho populace. IIo gav3 his
namo as Angolo Bressl describing him-
self as of Prato In Tuscany.
King Humbort waH born at Turin Maxell
14 1841 and was tho son of King Victor
Emmanuol II of Italy and tho Archduch-
ess Adelaide of Austria. In his early
days he took to tho army and with his
father went through the campaign In 1559
at tho ngo of 10 years. At tho ngi of
22 ho commanded a division of the Ital-
ian army and covered tho retreat of the
army after tho battlo of Custozza In 1SC5.
At tho age of 21 he married his cousin
Katharlna ol Savoy and to them there
was born ono son who was named Vlcioi
Emmanuel Ferdinand. In 1878 at tho age
of 33 years Humbert afceonded tho throne
left vacant by tho death of his father.
Shortly after his ascension to tho thrane
there was an attempt made to assassinate '
him. During tho cholera epidemic in '
1841 he gained great favor with his peo-j
pie for tho generous manner in which he
assisted tho victims of the plague out of
his own prlvato coffer. and for the bin-
very he showed in entering tho city of
Naples at tho time the epidemic was at
Its height. .'-. i
When Humbert was 23 years old hH
father put him in command of a division
in tho battlo of Villafranca and the
young prlnco managed his charge so well
that vlth a minimum of raw Infantry he
by strategem overcame af 'whole regiment
of cavalry at ono turn. Victor Emman-
uol saw in the youth the seed of a future
general and with the narrow vision and
one-sided prejudice of the victorious Sol-
dier ho straightway turned all his at-
tention to educating his son to bo a sol-
dier pure and simple and nothing but a
soldier. Prince Humbert was sent to all
countries that ho might learn the latest
arts of war and mlltary practice and
therefore we may jook to the father for
the blame of educating a soldier to rule
his people when the battle was over for
placing upon the throne a military ruler
when Italy way at peace and needed with
all the great crying need of a bleeding
war-ravaged unity a statesman king.
Slrce his early youth Humbert had sub
jected hlmsolf to the severest personal
regulations and for whatever he can be
blamed ho can never be said to have
fallod In any duty because of his love of
luxury or his disinclination for physical
fatigue or discomfort. He was always
winter and summer up and at work at
5 o'clock In tho morning; ho performed ov
erythlng down to tho smallest personal
duty for himself with military exact-
ness; and was as punctual In alKongage-
mentR and appointments as a business
man whoso time Is precious and who re-
a'lzes tho Importance of not keeping oth-
er men of affairs waiting. Unless there
was jo?nf accident or some unavoldaLie
fls'ay over which he had no control or
unless he was accompanied by the queen
who is r toriously behind time Humbert
always nppeared invariably the mompnt
he was opected. Threo vears ago. whin
hi3 life was attempted by an nnarciiM
who sprang Into his carriage as he ws
driving t-i th Ttussian embassy tho ttlnc
ordiTffi hia attendant to proceed In hats
to thi diminatitn and. upon his arrivil
made a lormal rpology for tho delay not
montlonlng lne cause of the vonsequrrruiy
excusable failure to come up to time.
POPE CELEBRATES MASS.
BRUSSELS JULY 30. A Wpecial from
"Manager Angelo dt Pietro. prefect of
th congregation of the council took it
upm hlmiojf to Inform the pope of the
asa-alnatlon of King Humbert. He en-
tered the chamber of Leo at an -early
h''Ur The latter was alroady nwnke.
' The curdlnal oautlouily first stated
that an attempt had been made upon the
life of tho king whereupon the pope Im-
Hifdlatoly asked if the wound was dan-
gerous. Tho prolate replied. 'Very dap-
gcrous' but his anxious air wa noticed
by the pope who at once divined tho
truth. His omotion was such that ho was
unable to spook for some tlmo. When his
distress had passed he wished to leave his
bed and to colebrate mass for thoao of
the Klnc's soil.
Later he summoned Cardinal Rampolla
(papal secretary of state) whom he re-
quested to send a dispatch of condolence
to Prlncoss CIotlld sister of the quoon.

Profound calm prevails throughout thp
entire country. Such members of tuo
Chamber of Deputies as aro In Rome
met this afternoon and adopted a reso-
lution execrating tho crime and express-
ing unbounded sorrow.
NEWS AT PARIS.
PARIS JULY 30. The news of assays
slnatlon did not arrive here until this
morning. Senior Dato minister of the m-
terlor Immediately left a card at the Ital-
ian embassy which at that hour was not
acquainted with the fact.
Senor SUvela the premier and Marquis

called later. The assassination has caused
the greatest indignation through France.
THE NEWS AT BERLIN.
BERLIN JULY 29. King Humbert's
asasslnatlon has awakened universal ex-
pressions of horror at tho deed and sym-
pathy for Italy throughout Germany. Up-
on the arrival of the news the flags at
all the ministries were half masted.
Count von Buelow's representative other
officials and many private persons callei
upon tho Italian ambassador Count Lanza
Dl Busca who arrived this afternoon
The press print3 ..lengthy and warm eu-
logies emphasizing King Humbert's
friendship for the Kaiser his father and
grandfather and his Invariable fidelity to
oermany. The National Zeltung says:
"Throughout the entire civilized world
the feeling of horror for the crime will
be equalled by tho astonishment that a
murderous weapon has been directed
against a prince whose whole life was de-
voUd to unselfish activity for his land
MONZA JULY 30 It appears that when
King Humbert was wounded he ex-
claimed: 'It is nothing."
The Royal carriage covered the distance
between the gymastlc club house where
the crime was committed and tho royal
villa at full speed acquiring but three
minutes. The king expired on the way
and although placed on a b.d was dead
when the doctors arrived.
Bressl is young tall and swarthy. It
appears that ho remained four days In
Prato and two days at Bologna after
which he en ma here. When Queen Mar-
gherlta arrived at tho vlll It was still
hoped that tho king would survive and
when the truth was broken to her a heart
rending fccene ensued. Bursting Into tears
she exclaimed: "It is tho greatest crime
of the century. Humbert was good and
faithful. No person could have loved his
people mor. He was one who bore 111
will to none."
When tho queen's mother arrived there
was another affecting scene.
The aSHaseln is strictly guarded In pris-
on. He continues to perserve absolute In-
difference and took his moals today with-
out any sign of being affected by his po-
sition. A second revolvor was found on
tho public stand In the gymnastic grounds
The room whero the embalming is pro-
ceeding is already filled with fiowoi'B.
The queen horelf placed a wreath on
the blfr and knelt and prayed beside tho
body; and. in spite of entreaties of tho
princess nnd princesses she refuses to
quit tho death chamber which is in
charge of Count Jurrl the lnte king's aide

tails of the terrible tragedy aro availably.

'rfpoctators realized what had occurred.

ery few pollco were in attendance nnd
only a small guard of soldiers was keep-

king amid tho choors of the crowd came

camp Gen. Ponzio Baglla. He had en-
WASIINGTON July 30. The effect
of the day's news from China was to
freshen hope that the government can
soon get in direct comunlcatlon with
Minister Conger. The mass of the testi-
mony as to his being alive ns late as
the 22d is such as to warrant the con-
sideration of the projects for the future
With all Its anxity to get Mr. Conger
and the Americans in Pekin away the
department is proceeding with proper
caution and is by no means disposed to
accept any pro-position that would un-
duly jeopardize their lives. Such might
be the result of an off-hand acceptance
to have the Chinese government de-
liver the ministers at Tien Tsln for it
is realized taht the escort might be
overpowered on its way to the sea.
Conger himself is the best person to
judge of the condition under which his
deliverance shall be affected and there-
fore it is again looking to the Chinese
government to place It in communica-
tion with Mr. Conger in order that It
may be advised by him.
That requirement was the first con-
dition laid down by President McKin-
ley In his answer to the appeal of the
Chinese emperor so that the situation
cannot be said to be materially chang-
ed by the developments of the day.
The department Is inclined to regard
Consul Fowler's communication as the
most valuable proof in regard to the
safety of the Pekln diplomats. Up
to a late hour no answer had been re-
ceived to the second Conger message
but in view of Consul Fowler's news
the officials were inclined to look for-
ward to an early reply.
It Is known here that Germany is one
of the governments that is putting
forth every effort to get in direct com-
munication with the beleagured minis-
ters and like the United States has
had recpurse to the underground)
route. An object of special solicitude
Is to discover whether Baroness von
Ketteler has escaped or whether she
shared the fate of her husband. Up to
the present nothing has been rce'ved to
throw any light on the subject.
The German ambassador and the
French charge paled at the stae de-
partment today to secure the 'atest in-
formation which Secretary Hays had
received and both were lmmensly
pleased at the Fowler dispatch.
General Chaffee reported today h's
arrival at Taku In advance of the ex-
The real rough
rider Is the man
who rides the river
With n twisting
squirming log for
a saddle on which
he stands balanc-
ing himself to its
every motion. If
his coolness fails
or his nerve gives
way disaster and
death reach out
It's the giving
way of the
" nerve " which
proves fatal to so
many a man. Per-
haps he is simply
crossing the street
as he has done ten
thousand times. He hears a shout stops
hesitates gets rattled " and is run over.
When a man finds that his memory plays
him false often when he starts off to get
something and forgets what he went for
when he knows he has locked the front
door and yet an irritating uncertainty
compels him to get up and verify his
knowledge then that man is in dan-
ger at any minute when confronted by a
trifling danger. He is unnerved.
This condition can be perfectly cured
by the use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Med-
ical Discovery. It strengthens tic stom-
ach nourishes the nerves and '.tirifies
the blood. It contains no ioohol
whisky or other intoxicant.
"The reason I delayed writing was because I
wanted to wnit one year after I had taken the
medicine before giving my statement and now
I can send a Rood conscientious testimonial"
writes as. H Sergeant Esq. of Plain City
Madisoi' Co.. Ohio. "During the summer and
fall of i& I became all " run down" nerves
were out of order and stomach out of order I
wrote to Dr. Pierce for advice. He said I had
general debility and advised Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery and. thanks to you for your
advice I used six bottles; and since I stopped
taking it about one vear ago I have not taken
any medicine of any Vind and have been able to
uvrk every day. My appetite is good I can eat
three square meals a day I do not feel that
miserable burning in the stomach after eating
end my blood and nerves are in good shape."

LONDON. July 31.-1:05 a. m. The
admirnlity has made public the folow-
ing dispatch from Real Admiral Bruce
at Tien Tsln:
"Following message from Pek'n:
"British legation Pekln June 20 to
July 1G repeatedly attacked by Chinese
troops on all sides both rifle and artil-
lery fire. Since July 1C an armistice
but a cordon is strictly drawn on both
sides the position. Chinese barricades
close to ours.
"All women and children in the
British legation. Casualties to date are
C2 killed including Captain Strouts. A
number of wounded In hospital Includ-
ing Captain Halllnday. Rest of legation
all wll except Warren and David Ol-
iphant killed July 21.
WASHINGTON July 30. Barol vor
Holleben the German ambassador
called upon Secretary Hay this morn-
ing. He said he had received no word
from Berlin on the receipt of the im-
portant letter from the German lega-
tion at Pekin discovered by Mr. Fow-
ler. As 1b always the case with these
Chinese advises a discrepancy appears
immediately upon comparlso nof the
German and the Japanese advices. The
German report says that the attack
stopped on tlie 12th: the Japanese re-
port places the cessation of the firing
on the 17th. The state department of-
ficials .believe that this is easily ex-
plained by a consideration of the dif-
fence of the Christian and the Chinese
calendars. Another curious statement
however is contained in the Japanese
report that six legations were still be-
ing defended on the 22d. This is in ap-
parent conflict with Mr. Conger's last
reported statement that the ministers
were in the British legation under con-
tinued shot nnd shell.
It was understood that Mr. Conger
meant all of the ministers were in the
British legation though this might
have been a strained interpretation of
his message and the various legations
mentioned in the Japanese dispatch
may still be depopuated.
The mlitary men here are amazed
that the legations successfully resisted
nearly a month's Incessant shelling by
ten baltalllons of Chinese. That any
trace of brick building should remain
after suoh a bombnrdment Is Inconceiv-
able by them.
