ASSASSIN' IMMEDIATELY ARRESTED
He Cynically Avoired His Guilt and
But Narrowly Escaped the
Fury of the Populace.
MONZA, Italy, July 30.-King Humbert
has been assassinated. He was shot hero
last evening at 10:45 by a man named
Angelo Bressl, and died at 11:30.
The King had been attending a distri
bution of prlzeB In connection with a
gymnastic competition about 10 o'clock.
He had just entered his carriage
with his ald-de-camp, amid the
cheers of the crowd, when he
was struck by three revolver shots fired
in quick succession. One pierced the heart
of His Majesty, who fell back and ex
pired in a few minutes.
The assassin was immediately arrested
and was with some difficulty saved from
the fury of the populace. He gave his
name as Angelo Bressl, describing him
self as of Prato, In Tuscany. He cynically
avowed his guilt of tho crime.

Too Late for Official Comment.
NEW YORK, July 29.-Owlng to the
lateness of the hour at which the news
of the assassination of King Humbert
was received In this city. It was impos
sible to sec either Consul-General Branchl
or Vice-Consuls Albertl and Burdese.

Prince of Naples to Succeed.
KANSAS CITY, July 29.-Jerome Fedeli,
Italian Vice-Consul In Kansas City, was
greatly shocked when he learned of the
assassination of King Humbert of Italy.
"King Humbert was greatly beloved by
his people." said Mr. Fedeli, "and I con
not conceive why any one but a crank or
an anarchist should wish to take his life.
He was good and kind and charitable. I
knew him welL He will be succeeded In
all probability by his oldest son, tho
Prince of Naples, who Is a young man,
not yet 30 years old.
"Why He Did Not Kill the Kins.
NEW YORK. July 30. Ten days ago an
Italian In Paterson, N. J., Carbole Spe
ranza, laid down his life and so absolved
himself fronvhis pledge to kill King Hum
bort of Italy. Ho killed Guiseppe Pessana
and then took his own life. It was said
that he held high place In the Mafia. The
two men quarreled and Speranza shot
Pessana and blew out his own brains. A
very strange letter was-found In his pock
et. In the letter which Speranza had pre
pared, he set forth that he was chosen
by his anarchist comrades to kill the
King of Italy, but that, owing to the fact
that he was In this country on the date
set for the attempt at assassination, he
could not fulfill his obligation.
"This Is not of my bidding," wrote Spe
ranza, "but the good and brave society
will sit On February 2. In Italy, It was
my lot and my order to kill the King. My
number came out In America and I could
not do It. They gave me liberty, but
ordered that the will of the society must
be obeyed. They have said that because
I was In America that I could do nothing,
but I will show them that I do not talk
only. Companions, either renounce the
society or in silence obey the oath of
The Dead Klner.
Jean Marie Ferdinand Eugene Humbert
I, King of Italy, was born March 14. lS4t
He attended his father, Victor Emmanuel,
during the War of .Italian Independence
in IKS. In 1S6S. when Italy fought with
Austria, the Prince took the field as com
mander of a division In General Calal
dlnl's army, and was present at the dis
astrous battle of Custozza, June 23, 1SGS.
After Rome was occupied In 1S70 by the
Italian troops, ho took up his residence
there, and upon the death of his father,
January 9, 1S78, succeeded to the throne
of Italy. In November of the same year
an attempt was made to assassinate him,
but It failed. When the would-be assas
sin was condemned to death, Humbert
commuted his sentence to Imprisonment
at hard labor. During the cholera epi
demic at Naples, he exposed himself fre
quently In his endeavors to alleviate the
suffering of the sick and dying. By these
and other acts of kindness the King won
the affection of the Italian people. In
1S6S he married his cousin. Princess Mar
guerite of Savor, and a son was born of
this marriage In 1SC9.
