It is reported from Hayti that another
attempt has been made to
story is that the President was in
bed at the palace when one of his attendants
saw a man slipping along
the corridor toward the President's
room. The attendant grappled with
him and was stabbed in the shoulder.
Other attendants came and the man
was hdd and bound. He was asked
what his object was in visiting the
palace and said: To kill Hippolyte."
He was then taken out and shot.
An investigation was made and it
ivas found that the man got into the
grounds by breaking through the
fence. The next day six of ihe
guards were shot for allowing the
man io get into the house, and the
Lieutenant who commanded them
was sentenced to be shot, but a son
of Hippolyte interceded for the Lieutenant
and his life was spared, but he
is still in prison. It is believed that
ihe attempted assassination is the result
of a conspiracy in which people
in Hippolyte's household are implicated.
