PARIS, July SO. Tha news of the ter
rible defeat Inflicted on the Spanish
forces by Moors at Melilla. and the con
firmation of the extent of the Insurrec
tion in Spain, causes apprehension here.
The triumph of the Moors In the Riff
rountry perhaps will Inflame all of
(slam, and lead to an uprising in Algeria
and the Soudan. The attack upon French
troops at Colom-Bechar the other day is
Bow regarded here as a direct result of
fee events on the Riff coast. Some of
the Paris newspapers, therefore, boldly
uirgrest that In self-interest It Is the
duty of Europe to come to the rescue.
The Eclair says it is impossible for Eu
rope to bow before the insolent, trium
phant Moors, and that Christian civiliza
tion cannot afford to allow Spain to be
beaten. On the other hand, many news
papers declare that the Melilla disaster
recalls the muddle and Incapacity of
every department in the Spanish govern
ment during the Cuban war. These news
papers advise the government at Madrid
to make a virtue of necessity by prompt
ly ending the adventure, as otherwise It
will put an end to the Spanish govern
ment. The Marquis del Munis, the Spanish
ambassador at Paris, has transmitted a
note to the French government formally
declaring that the Riff campaign was
not undertaken with the object of con
quest, but solely to punish the Moors for
their attacks on Spaniards, and their af
front to the Melilla garrison.
The Spanish ambassador, in an inter
view today attributes the unheaval at
Bercelona solely to the anarchists,
and he la confident it will be promptly
suppressed. He explains that the gov
ernment Intends to satisfy the popular
demand regarding obligatory military
service and that It has already Intro
duced a bill in the Senate for that pur
pose. ffllDE TED SPA IX INTO AVAR
after Reverses In Cuba and Philip
pines, Spaniards Wanted Victory.
PARIS. July SO It is learned that
Spain's disavowal of any intention of con
quest tn Africa was made at the specific
request of France, In consequence of the
circulation of reports that Spain had re
re 1 red a mandate and the promise of sup
port from France and England.
The Madrid correspondent of the Temps
lays he learns from authoritative sources
that there is no question of a ministerial
crista or the formation of a military cab
inet. The correspondent says that King Al
fonso has received from Marshals Lopez,
Pomingues and Rivera and Generals
Luque and Polavleja and more than 100
superior officers a tender of their services
to aid in the suppression of the revolt
The French government today tele
graphed instructions to the French mil
itary commander In Algeria Instructing
Mm to strengthen the French posts on the
Moroccan frontier and to be prepared to
act energetically In the event of the Moors
In French territory attempting to Join the
movement against Spain.
The Madrid correspondent of the Temps
reports that General Marina, commander
of the military forces at Melilla, Is satis
fied that he can meet the situation with
the troops now at his disposal and the
reinforcement which are now on their
way to him.
An unexplainahle statement attributed
to htm Is that the Spanish death losses
number of which 40 are officers, and
the wounded number 60. of which 60 are
officers. The text of this official telegram
as made public yesterday by the War Of
fice, gave a much greater casualty list.
Private dispatches from Madrid say
King Alfonso agreed with Premier Maura
that after the humiliating loss of Cuba
and the Philippines. Spain could not avoid
the exemplary punishment of the Moors
without admitting that she was a fallen

"The truth is. this movement undoubt
edly is revolutionary and has been or

fluence, who have not appeared up to the
present and as to whose identity dls
cretlon counsels silence."
A Bpeciai from Madrid, dated Friday,
states that more than 400 were killed In
the revolutionary straggle at Barcelona.
The situation was considered so serious
that two regiments detailed to start for
Melilla were ordered to remain in Madrid.
A special from San Sebastian says that
the troops have mastered the situation in
Barcelona, where the casualty list num
bers more than 1600. Seventy armed in
surgents were captured there this morn
ing and summarily shot.
' People Greet Soldiers.
"The people acclaimed the soldiers
with cries of "Long; live the army.'
Down with the War Office.'
"They were followed about the streets
by crowds of women, who shook their
hands and embraced the necks of their
horses, crying: Ion will not go to
"General Brandies was cheered to the
echo, while 24,000 women waved their
handkerchiefs at the troops on their

carry a vision of frenzied fighting In

voted Red Cross, of the churches
burned, of altars and images wrecked,
and the flight of monks and nuns to

SPAIN'S LUCKLESS QUEEN, WHO IS IN DANGER OF LOSING
THRONE TO WHICH SHE WAS FORCED AGAINST HER WILL.
QIKEN VICTOBIA OF SPAIN.
General In charge of the government
forces at Barcelona state that the re
volt In that city is now put down, and
that but a few scattered groups of rev
olutionists xe still holding out in the
suburbs. In official circles this report
causes Intense relief, but in other cir
cles there is a general tendency to dis
credit it and to believe that the mes
sage has been sent out merely to dis
courage other revolutionary bodies,
who have taken great heart from the
fact that Alejandro le Reux, the leader
of the revolutionists, is returning from
Brazil to take active charge of the up
rising. The government authorities fear the
return of this man more than anything
else, as he holds the workingmen's as
sociations in the palm of his hand.
Last year, after a break with the Cata
lonlan solldarists. he was arrested and
sentenced to two years' imprisonment,
but escaped and fled to Brazil. His
return will mean an active leader at
the head of the present revolution: and
it is the lack of a strong chief that has
so far enabled the government troops
to make what progress they have
against the revolt.
Barcelona today, according to reports
that have gotten past the censor. Is tn
a state of terror, half the people being
paralyzed with fear, and half mad
dened with blood. The slaughter In
St. Martin's Square yesterday, when
cavalrymen drove bands of revolution
ists before machine guns and had them
shot down, has added to the fires of re
volt, and while many rebels were
killed the number is not even esti
mated those that remain have sworn
vengeance, and the brutality of the
slaughter has won many new recruits.
Reports received from throughout
Catalonia lay great stress upon the
fury of the women, who fought side by
side with the men everywhere.
At Barcelona they fought behind the
barricades with the men, urging them
to fight to the death. Everywhere they
resisted searches by gendarmes for re
cruits for the reserves, barring the
doors of their houses and firing at the
soldiers from the windows.
At Casa de la Salva the population
surrounded and disarmed the civil guard
and locked up the officials in the bar
racks. Not only at Barcelona but
throughout the province, church property
was the special object of the popular
fury. Horrible stories are recounted of
the merciless fashion in which the
churches and convents were sacked and
burned. The Inmates of the Institutions
were driven Into the fields to cries of
"Down with the church."
At Granollers. 16 miles, from Barcelona,
two convents were burned.
At Amer the Carmelite convent wis
looted and burned. The Sisters narrow
ly escaped with their lives.
From many Interior points come re
ports of not and incendiarism. But
the movement is without the apparent
central organisation of a leader. In
the north there are fears that Don
Jaime, the Carllst leader, will take ad
vantage of the situation by renewing
the Carllst movement against the dy
nasty. ROYAL FAMILY HAS XOT FLED

Victoria. Used as a human pawn In
the European political chese game, she
was forced three years ago to renounce
the man she loved and to marry King
Alfonso. Torn from her English home,
she was thrust among people whom she
detested and who hate her with all the
Latin vldictiveness for one not of their
race and religion chiefly religion.
Hatred Instead of Love.
She had to give up her own faith and
her own people; she won the enmity
of the Spanish court and populace as an
"irterloper" and a "foreigner," she has
quarreled with her royal husband; she
hates her mother-in-law, while the boy
King reciprocates by hating his own
mother-in-law Just as cordially, and she
Is practically alone and friendless in the
nation of which she Is Queen.
Now, to crown her troubles, Spain Is
in revolt, and the unhappy woman on the
throne knows not whether she will have
throne, cronn or even life when the
civil war ends.
Denied Joys of Home Life.
Even the happiness of home life and
the simple Joys of the domestic hearth
are denied her, because the rigid rules
of the Spanish court do not permit her
to bring up her children herself, as she
would wish. Instead, they must be tended
and cared for by nurses and tutors and
governesses and ladies in waiting.
NOTED PREACHER HONORED
Title of Doctor of Divinity Conferred
on J. R. X. Boll, or Corvallis.
COR V ALLI S, Or.. July 80. (Special.)
Last evening the trustees of Philomath
College, through President White, con
ferred the dc-ee of doctor of divinity
upon Rev. J. R. N. Bell, of Corvallis. Dr.
Bell, who had been previously Invited to
lecture before the collegiate body, took
for his theme "Modern Aristocracy." The
subject was treated so meritoriously that
the lecture was taken in lieu of a thesis.
President White, at the olose of the lec
ture, requested Rev. Bell to arise and
there for the first time officially notified
him of the action of the board.
The action of the board is somewhat
remarkable for the reasons that Dr. Bell
Is the only man in the We6t who received
that honor from all the presidents and
faculties of colleges and university assem
bled at a state teachers' association, as
was done tn Dr. Bell's case some 20 years
ago tn the old Corvallis College. The
title of reverend, as applied to ministers,
has been declared by the Corvallis min
isterial body as unfitting and Improper.
Philomath College has been very sparing
In conferring honorary degrees, having
granted honorary degrees to three persons
only In a history of 40 years.
Citizens of Corvallis, who recognize Dr.
Bell's scholarly attainments, his power as
a pulpiteer and his genial character unite
In hearty approval of the action of Philo
