l.onn of Life by
August 81.—The trial of
Seattle, Wash., Hept. I.—The steam
was returning from a gymnastic exhi
bition, opened here trxluy.
mense crowd of jaxqrle gathered aixmt
the court rrxrin from early morning,
seeking admission. Only a few places
were reserved for the ticketdiolding
Tlie hearing began at 9
o’clock. Bresai sat in the dock, calm
and almost indifferent. His rxmusel,
"tgnor Martelii, bead ol the Milan bar,
I and the anarchist writer, hignor Mer
lin, made requests on various grounds
for an adjournment, w hich was refused.
It is said that Breaai wrote to the
judges declaring he would not reply
to lire interrogatories.
Wiiile the indictrnenti which was
very long, was being read, Breast Was
apparently unmoved, and scanned the
fm es of the audiener, without any signs
• j I fear or effrontery.
lhe indictmgiit showed that th» an-
Mixsln indulged in Incessant target
practice, and that he prepred bullets so
ax to tender them more dangerous, Tbe
witneixuM were then iutnxiuced tor the
Tbe examination of Breaai followed.
He declared he decided to kill King
Humbert after the events of Milan ami
Sicily, "to avenge the misery of the
people and my own.” He added: "I
acted without advice or accomplice».”
The prisoner admitted the target prac
tice ami tile preparation of bullets.
He x|»iku in a low, firm voice, ami said
be firs-l three shots at three yards
w ith his revolver. Two wooden targets
were her» placml on the table la-fore
the judges. Two hours' suspension of
the court ensued, and then the wit-
m-xhua were heard.
A brigadier of gendarmes, Falvatori,
recapitulated the story of thu assassin-
atiou of the king. He said be saved
Bressi from the crowd, who nearly
lynched the assassin. Bressi, wiien
rescued, wax covered with blrxid,
Bressi escaped with life imprison
ment, as that |>eualty is the most severe’
which can be imposed under the law»
of Italy for murder, on which charg,
tlie anarchist was tried, It was at firs
believed Bressi would tie tried on the j
charge of treason, in which case the
penalty would have been death.
thu city, she brought nothing bill
Nome news. There were 250 return
ing passengers, many of them who had
made the round trip for pleasure. The
Senator brought about $320,(KM) in
treasure, $300,000 of it consigned to
various companies and tanking institu
tions in thia city. The $20,000 was
owned by private individuals.
The recent storms at Nome created
terrible loss of life. Thirty-eight bod
ies have taen recovered on the beach
and buried by the officials. Captain
Richaidson, of the Sequoia, which is
engaged in the fishing trade down the
coast, says that 17 dead Indies have
been found awl buried tatween Topkuk
and <iolotinin bay, and 21 between
Topkuk and Bort Safety. The major
ity of the drowned men are supposed
to lie victims of the late storm. It. J.
Nelson foiiud two bodies at Chinik.
On one was found the address. 21 Third
street, San Francisco, but do name.
So far as known, none ot the bodies
were Identified before burial. Captain
Ramwell, agent of the steamer El
more, says that passengers arriving
from down the coast say that fully 25
dead bodies, washed ashore by the
waves, have l>een buried between Top
kuk and Golofinin bay.
Reports of drowning have also been
received from up the coast. Men who
have come down from York and Port
Clarence lately, say that without doubt
many persons were drowne-t. How
many will probably never be known.

He received 708
votes, or 6S more
than the necessary number. The con

great disorder many times marked the

plan of tbe anti-Rogers faction to put
J. T. Ronald, of King, whom a great

as the balloting proceeded seemed cer

voted for Robertson, expecting to give
Ronald the second nomination. The
King county man had made a combi

other nomination, and he could not
honorably enter the second contest.
Dauiels tinally solved the problem for
King county and saved Ronald’s neck
by offering to withdraw. Ronald and
Robertson were then nominated by ac
The following platform was adopted
