Tokio, June 1. Rough estimates
made of the Ruseian losses in the
battle fought in the Sea of Japan,
exclusive of nearly 4000 prisoners,
vary from 7000 to 9000. It is fear
ed that the majority perished. Cal
culating the complements of tbe
sunken and captured snips at uo-
wards of 10,000, 7000 remain unac
counted for. It is possible that the
ships which escaped rescued some
of the crews of. the less fortunate
ships. ' Many bodies have been
washed ashore on the islands and
on the shores of the neighboring
coasts near the scene of the battle.

Tokio, May 3o. It now" appears
that the report of the sinking of an

later retaken by the Japanese war
ships. ' '

Paris, June 1. An attempt to
assassinate King Alfonso was made
at midnight, as his majesty drove
with President Loubet from a gala
performance at the grand opera
house. -A bomb was thrown by an
anarchist, and exploded with dead
ly effect near the royal carriage.
As if by a miracle, both the king
and the president escaped uninjur
ed, but fragments of the missile se
riously injured five persons, killed
or maimed a number of cavalry
horses forming the essort and
knocked out a child's eye. The
king and president retained their
presence of mind, bis majesty send
ing back a member of his suite to
make inquiries; as to the condition
of the woucded;.-vrhe person who
is believed ; to : lave thrown the
bomb, has been arrested with two
others who are thought to be impli
cated in the plot. ;
King Alfonso and President Lou
bet had been cheered along tbe en
tire route to the opeia by enthusi
astic crowds, the young monarch
having completely gained the
hearts of Parisians since his arrival
here. -; -' - -: ': "'". ' . '
When the king . and President
Loubet entered the building, sur
rounded by a brilliant, staff and
followed by nearly the entire diplo
matic corps and superior .officials,
the house which . was composed of
the elite of French society, rose and
cheered, while the orchestra played
the Spanish and iFrench national

formance the king and president

Just a few yards before " reaching
the Rue Rivoli, a man sprang for
wa?d with his arm raised in the air
could prevent him, without utter
ing a word, threw a projectile in
the direction of the royal carriage.
At that moment a deafening ex
plosion occurred. Cries from the
crowd were heard and a scene of in
tense excitement began, the crowd
surging to and fro. Soldiers were
seen to fall, but, as the nasn Horn
thejaomb died out, it was observed
that the king and the president had
not been struck, and their carriage
proceeded on its way.
The bomb had been thrown with
too great force and passed over the
royal carriage and struck the shoul
der of a cuirassier and then fell to
the ground where it exploded, frag
ments of it striking the horses of
tbe soldiers, causing them to bolt
and throw their riders.
Captain Schneider, who was rid
ing at the side of the carriage, and
Captain Gamier, who was on the
left, were both thrown. Fragments
of the bomb also struck five persons,
one horse of the escort was killed
outright and six others lay about,
maimed and bleeding.
' The lorce of the explosion was
terrific and caused a derangement
of the electric lights, which were all
extinguished, adding daikness to
tbe scene of confusion. Women
and children screamed, and a panic
was for a time ' threatened in the
vast throng until the police suc
ceeded in restoring order.
At 2 o'clock this morning the pre
fect of police interrogated the men
arrested, who were all young work
men, of the ages of 14, 2I and 22.
It is not known whether they be
longed to the group which organiz
ed the outrage. They will be put
through a serious interrogation.
Meanwhile they are held at the dis
position of the police.
An anarchist arrested eany ims
morning was knowrf by the police
to have brought a number of bombs
from Spain. Diligent search led to

them, which is believed to have

are ready to strike a blow, and are
