chester, the socialist member capped
the climax by declaring that if tbe head
of every king of Europe were torn from

of Ferrer's life.
He called the Russian emperor a
"dirty monster," and said King Ed

execution, was responsible for what
might happen In England as a result
of it. He demanded the expulsion of
tbe Spanish minister.
The socialist societies, carrying ban
ners, then marehed to tbe Spanish em
bassy, singing revolutionary songs and
hooting King Alfonso. A rabbis ac
companied them, filling the streets. It
was dark when they reached tho open
square In front of the embassy, and
they found the square filled with police.

would not let the procession- enter the
square, nor even stop.
The crowds turned back and kept
