London Mob Condemns Alfonso and
Blames King Edward.
Loiulou, Oct. 18.—The red Hag was
raised iu Loudon this afternoon and
a large mob moved upon the Spanish
embassay to make a dem onstration of
its disapproval of the execution of Pro
lessor Francisco Ferrer at Barcelona.
Police drove off the crowds in their
usual bloodless effectual way. But un
easiness pervaded the neighborhood.
The trouble began at a mass meeting
in T rafalgar square organized by sev
eral socialists and labor bodies. Sev
eral hundred members of these organi
zations marched to the square carrying
red Hags draped with crepe and bearing
inscriptions denouncing K ing Alfonso.
A black bordered banner was left stand

letters, “ To Hell W ith the M urderer
Several laborite members of parlia
meut spoke. Victor Grayson, of Man
Chester, the socialist member, capped
the climax by declaring th at if the head
of every king of Europe were toru from
his body, it would not pay half the price
of F e rrer’s life.
He called the Russian emperor a
“ dirty m onster," and said King E d
ward, who could have prevented the
execution, was responsible for what
might happen iu England ns a result
of it. He demanded the expulsion of
the Spanish m inister.
The socialist societies, carrying ban
ners, then marched to the Spanish em
bassy, singing revolutionary songs and
hooting King Alfonso. A rabble ac
companied them, filling the streets. It
was dark when they reached the open
square in front of the embassy, and
they found the square filled with police.
The embassy window’s were dark and
tnere was no sign of life. The police
would not let the procession enter the
square, nor even stop.
The crowds turned back and kept
moving up Victoria street, toward the
Parliam ent buildings, singing, shouting
and groaning. The reserves drove the
mob into the side streets, dispersing it
