Leaders Arrested in Catalonia

BARCELONA: The independent state of Catalonia, which was proclaimed by President Luis Companys at 8.30 last night [Oct. 7], came to an end at 6 o’clock this morning when Spanish troops under General Balet occupied the government buildings and arrested the Catalan President and the members of the Cabinet. Simultaneously the project of proclaiming Spain a federated republic with Manuel Azana, former Premier, as its first President, collapsed. Azana was not to be found all day, but it was reported tonight that he has been arrested at a small port near here as he was about to embark for France.
