since thu day in Washington whon thu
hundreds of thousands of veterans, thu
most )overful army on earth, marched
in review to their llnal diHliandmont.
Probably 110,000 nioinbors of tho

almost perfectly aligned, but occasion

Milan, August 31. Tho trial of.
Bressi, tho anarchist, who, July 30,
shot and killed King Humbert, of
Italy, at Monr.a, while his majesty
was returning from a gymtiastio exhi
bition, opened hero today. An im
uienso ciowd of pcoplo gathered about
tho court room from early morning,
seeking admission. Only a few places
wero iejervcd for the ticket-holding
public. Tho hearing began at 0
o'clock. Bressi sat iu tho dock, calm
end almost indifferent. His counsel,
Signor Mnrtolll, head of thu Milan bar,
and tho anarchist writer, Slgnbr Mor
lln, mado requests ou various grouudA
for an adjourument, whicli was rofupod.
It is said that Bresi wruto to tho
jndgos declaring ho would not reply
to the interrogatories.
Whilo tho indiiitment, which was
vory long, was being read, Bressi was
apparently unmoved, and scanned tho
faces of tho audience without any signs
of fear or offrontory.
Tho indictment showed that tho as
sassin indulged iu incessant target
practice, and that he proprcd bullets so
as to render them more dangerous. Tho
witnesses woru then introduced for tho
Tho examination of Bressi followed.
He doularod hu decided to kill King
Humbert after thu events of Milan anil
Sicliy, "to avengo the inlsory of thu
people mid my own." Hu added: "I
ectod without advice or accomplices,"
Thu prisoner admitted the target prac
tice and tho preparation of bullets.
Ho spoke iu a low, llrm uico, and said
ho tired three shuts at three yards
with liis revolver. Two wooden targets
were hero placed on thu tablu huforo
thu judge. Two hours' suspension of
tho court ensued, aipl thou thu. wit
nesses woro heard.
A brigadier of gendaimes, Salvatori,
recapitulated tho story of thu assassin
ation of thu king. Hu said ho saved
Bressi fiom tho crowd, who nearly
lynched thu assassin. Iliessi, when
rescued, was covered with blood.
Ilressi ehcaped with life Imprison
ment, as that iwnulty is tho most suvoro
which can bo iuiMsud under thu laws
of Italy for murder, ou which uhatgu
th anarchist was tried. It was at first
believed Bressi would bo tried ou tho
charge of treason, iu which case thu
penalty would havo been death.
