New York, Aug. 3.—The Herald to-mor
foW will publish the following:
In the possession of the police and of
the Italian authorities, is evidence which
the investigators regard as indisputable
proof of the formation here and in Pater
son. N. J., of a gigantic plot against the
live* of the crowned heads of the world.
Various shreds and patches of proof were
gathered Yesterday which indicate that
the original fabric woven by the master
weaver was Intricate and subtle. The
anarchists suspected of having gone to
slay the King of Italy, hi 9 Queen and
others went by various routes as the
books of the various steamship companies
The Italian government through Its
consul general yesterday obtained po-ses
sion of the books of the French line. It
Is said the books reveal the fact that
Qulntaval sailed from this countiy. Br set,
It was supposed, obtained passage on a
White Star liner. A note received yester
day from Chevalier Louis V. Fugazy of
this city says that he did not sell the
ticket to Bresci, as an examination of
hb books will show. The woman La Belle
Thertsa, believed to have been the ac
complice of Bresci sailed last May with
him. The Italian secret agents are said
to have found the exact day on which
these two left this shore.
Malatesta, the alleged arch plotter. Is
quoted from London saying that he left
this country six weeks ago on an Ameri
can liner. \
There Were Substitutes.
Those who went forth to kill were form
ed In companies, so that one might fol
low up another in c'ase any as
sassin failed to do his work or flinched
when the final test came.
Those who went later to the scene of
the crime were believed to be Antonio
Lana, the baker, and Sassi, the student.
It was learned yesterday that Matteo
Sassi sailed for Naples on July 7, from
Hoboken, on the North German Lloyd
steamer Kaiser Wilhelm 11. Hl# ticket
was purchased from Ceeare Contia, a
well known agent. Sassi is described In
the books of the company as being 35
years of age. He appeared in the Italian
quarter With La Belle Theresa, and tnen
when Bresci apparently laid siege to the
affections of the fair and fickle queen of
the reds, the student was not seen again.
He seems to have been in the company
which went on Its mission of murder to
the shores of the Old World.
On the same steamer was Antonio
''Lama," who may have been Antonio
Lina, the baker, arrested on the other
side os the accomplice of the assassin,
end known here as an anarchist of the
most ardent hue. His friends say that
he sailed from thie port about May 15.
He disappeared from his familiar haunts
about that time, at least. On the same
steamer was Raffaelo Lama.
In this personally conducted excursion,
of course, Enrico Malatesta is credited
with being the managing director.
Reports yesterday from Cincinnati
tell of an effort to Malatesta to get a man
to go from that city to kill the Italian
King. He did not find the willing tool
there, but here, within a few moles of
New York, he diecovered a man willing to
do the bidding of the arch-conspirator. In
the dty of New York he foisnd Lana, the
baker, and La Belle Theresa,whose records
were yesterday looked up by the Italian
agents. He sent them across the seas by
various steamers and with Instructions
which meant death to the heads which
wore European crowns.
It was found yesterday that the woman
known as La Belle Theresa was once mar
ried to a man named Brugnotl, a maker
of macaroni. The nnme Ighlma, by which
the woman was generally known, was her
maiden name. She had a daughter, Ida.
from whom the police yesterday were
seeking to get some information concern
ing the departure of her mother for
Italy. La Belle Theresa Is gone.
The woman arrested in Italy as Bread's
accomplice is tall and had brown hair.
La Belle Theresa was both tall and fair
haired. This is unusual for an Italian wo
man. She is about 32 years of age. She
had been In company with Bresci and dis
appeared when Bresci bade good-by to
his friends in Paterson.
Antonio Lana, who waq oftdp seen about
Paterson, has also disappeared.

DEMAND FOR PUNISHMENT.
Foreigners Think Chinese Capital
Should Be Destroyed.
Che Foo, July 29, via Shanghai, Aug. 2.
Public opinion and the foreign press at the
treaty ports art alarmed at the possibility
that tho Chinese may prevail upon the
Powers to consent to the establishment of
peace without Inflicting punishment befit
ting the Chinese government's crime.
Officials, persons engaged In commercial
pursuits and missionaries of all nationall
teis are remarkably united. They believe
Pekin should be destroyed as
an object lesson, and that if
the dynasty Is continued, it
should be forced to establish the capital
at. some acce slble city, the Americans
suggesting Nankin. This is copsld re l
Important, as ihe Chinese always believed
that China defeated the Powers in 1830
because the capital remained iniact.
It Is also thought that guarantees to
prevent excessive armament should be
demanded and that China should bi com
pelled, publicly and and, finitely to renounce
the fiction that the foreign mintste * are
repre sentatives of tributary Powers. There
Is a strong demand for unusual punish
mrnt. like the destruction of the kings

LEE WAS FATALLY WOUNDED.
WAY CROSS POLICEMAN WAS SHOT
DOWN BY A NEGRO.
The Criminal Who Got Aws; Is Sup
posed to Be an Escaped Convict
From the Fargo Camp—W ns Try
ing to Get Into a Freight Car
When the Policeman Came Up—Ne
gro Shot Him In the Abdomen nnd
Waycross, Ga., Aug. 3 John W. Lee,
one of the bravest officers on the Way
cross police force, was ehot and In all
probability fatally wounded last night
about 10 o'clock.
The shooting was done by a negro, who
is supposed to be an escaped convict from
the camp at Fargo, on the Atlantic, Val
dosta and Western Railroad.
For two or three days, two negroes, one
coal black and the other a mulatto, have
been hanging about town, and the suppo
sition is that they are two men who es
caped from the Fargo camp several days
ago. It is thought they are the same two
men that made the attack on Scott Bea
ton night before last, and maybe the ones
who held up Mr. Sessions out near the Air
Policeman Lee was on the lookout for
these men, and about 10 o’clock last
night he discovered one of them, the black
one, near the Plant System passenger
station, in the act of mounting a freight
car with the evident intention of leaving
Going up to the man he pulled him
down from the freight ear and started
to place the handcuffs on his wrist. As
he did so the negro shot the officer, the
ball striking him in the stomach, passing
entirely through his body.
Negro Made His Escape.
The negro made a dash immediately aft
er the shooting and Mr. Lee fired one shot
at him, but It is presumed without effect.
At any rate, he made good his escape.
Engineer Dave Flynn was at the water
tunk taking on a supply of water, when
he heard the shooting, which occurred
only a few yards from where his engine
was standing. Jumping down from his
engine, Mr. Flynn ran across in the di
rection of the shooting, asking as he run,
“What is all this shooting about?"
Policeman Lee recognized bis voice and
said, “Come here quick, Dave, I'm shot.”
Mr. Flynn succeeded in getting the
wounded man to the platform, and his
strength failing rapidly, a truck was se
cured and he was taken to the offices of
Walker & Izlar, only a few rods distent,
where he has remained' since.
After examining his wound the physi
cian pronounced the wound fatal.
Scouring the AVoods.
In the meantime men were scouring the
woods for the negro, but he could not
be located. All through the night the
search was continued, but without euc
cess. The other negro, partner of the one
who did the shooting, was arrested and
taken before Mr. Lee, but he said that
was not the man who shot him, but it
was his pal. He described the man who
shot him as a tail black negro, with a
scar on hie forehead. The negro ran
oft in the direction of the Plant System
shops, and it is supposed he escaped into
the woods in some direction.
Mcßee's blood hounds were telephoned
for immediately after the shooting, and
they arr.ved on a special engine at 2 a.
m., and were put at cnee upon the trail,
but in the confusion of tracks it was dif
ficult for them to follow the negro, and
all hope of locating him by this means
was abandoned. Every street and lane and
avenue where it was thought he could
attempt to pass was carefully guarded by
men ready to do their duty.
Mr. Lee was unconscious this morning,
and was reported in a dying condition.
Policeman John Lee is recognized as
one of the best and most efficient men
who ever served on the police force in
Waycross. He has served a number of
years In his present capacity. Something
over a year ago he attempted to arrest
young Fayette Brett, and the boy shot
him in the arm, from the effect of which
he was laid up for several weeks. He is
a eon of C'apt. Joe Lee, an old Confeder
ate soldier, and a man who has the res
pect of sit who know him. He has a wife
and a little baby six or eight months old.
A Negro Arrested.
About 10 o'clock this morning a mes
sage came stating that a negro, answer
ing the description of the man wanted,
had been arrested at Bladen, nineteen
miles this side of Brunswick. A speclai
train was Immediately dispatched by Supt.
Haines, and at 11 o’clock, it pulled out
with Sheriff McClellan, Deputy Cason,
Chief of Police Colley, and a number of
others. They arrived at Bladen and
found that a local constable, A. Boss, had
areeted a negro on suspicion.
It is not believed that he is the negro
wanted. He will he taken before Police
man Lee for ldfntiflcatlcn as soon as the
physicians think best.
Mr. Lee rallied this morning, and to the
great gratification of his friends, the phy
sicians think now there Is good hope of
his recover}’. They think probably the ball
ranged downward, and did not strike any

Mr. Bryan Will Devote It Almost
Wholly to Imperialism.
Lincoln, Neb., Aug. 3.—Mr. Bryan to
day concluded the writing of his speech
to be made at Indianapolis next Wednes
day, in accepting the Democratic nomi
nation for the presidency. The speech
is about eight thousand words in length.
He has adhered to his original inten
tion of devoting the document almost en
tirely to the question of imperialism. In
following this course he pursues the gen
eral plan adopted In 1896 of giving special
attention In his notification to the sub
ject made paramount by the Democratic
platform. For this reason the policy of
the government with reference to the ac
quisition of foreign territory will this
year be given the place of prominence
which was allotted to the financial ques
tion in 1896, the other subjects being left
to be dealt with In tho letter of accept
ance to be given out later. The remarks
upon this subject are based upon the ad
ministration's conduct of affairs in the

of prominence, and Vice Chairman Ed

tee, to-day issued a call to the Executive
Committee of that party to meet in Chi
cago on the day following the Indianap

there is little doubt that Its principal ob
ject Is to confer with Mr. Bryan.

The nuspenslm of flfiy m chanles on the

they say, as ther- appears to b® no slack

this ac ion to an effort being made by
the employer at the shop to secure an
