An Infernal Machine Sent
to the Kaiser.
It Was Similar to the One
Sent to Caprivi.
The French Government Will Help
to Ferret Out the Sender.
Dynamiting Episodes Discussed ta th*
British Commons-The French
and Italian Orlsee—General
By tbe Associated Press.
Berlin, Nov. 28.— It now appears tbat
Emperor William, last Sunday received
an infernal machine from Orleans, simi
lar to tbe one sent to Caprivi. It was
accompanied by a letter. Both were
delivered at the emperor's civil cabinet,
where its nature waa discovered and it
was rendered harmless.
Tbe letter which accompanied the
infernal machine sent to Caprivi, read:
"1 bave the honor to forward you sam
ples of an astonishing kind of radish
seed, usually sown in December and
gathered in February. This kind is not
affected by frost. Receive, sir, the
assurance of my perfect consideration,
(Signed) "G. Dochanteibs,
"17 Rue Bontlong, Orleans."
Tbe letter sent to Emperor William
with tbe infernal machine bad the same
contents as the one addreseed to Ca
privi. Tbe supposition that the sending
of the two infernal machines was tbe
work of a crank is now abandoned, and
it is believed tbe attempts upon tbe life
of tbe emperor and the chancellor were
due to Chauvinists, disappointed at the
elo'V work of the Franco Russian en
tente, and who decided to take revenge
in their own hands.
The machine sent to tbe emperor waß
contained in a wooden box similar to
those used for dominos. At one end of
the box, near the bottom, was fixed a
brass case filled with nitro-glycerine.
The explosive was concealed thiough an
aperture in tbe bottom, with an ordi
nary percussion cap. The box was filled
in with loose gunpowder. As tbe ap
pearance of the box excited suspicion it
was hatided over to the chief of police
who bad it opened by a gunsmith.
The emperor has not yet been in
formed of the receipt of either infernal
machine. Tbe French government has
promised the utmost asaiataiice in trac
ing.the author of the attempted out
rage, who is as yet utterly unknown.

and Miss Mary L. Yeargin, supposed to
have been drowned in Lake Cayuga,
November 18th, were in New York city,
and that the doctor had written a friend

letter carrier firmly denies the story.

the doctor's overcoat has created com

Yeargin's gloves, were found on tbe

was near by, partly filled with water.
There are some that are inclined to be

Portland, Ore., Nov. 28. —In the
smuggling case, the principal witness
called by the government thia afternoon,
was Nathan Blum, a stockholder in tbe
Merchants' Steamship company. Blum
yesterday pleaded guilty to smuggling
opium, and it is understood that tbe

principally to secure a conviction of the
others. Blum proved to be a very will

bravado manner. He testified tbat from
March, 1892, to March, 1893, his com
pany smuggled from seven to nine tone

Blum, W. B. Jacklingand Major John
Wilson, of Victoria, B. C, it appears

barrels, and when tbe steamer reached
the Columbia river, a few miles from
the city, the opium was thrown over

Deliclt In the Postal
Washington, Nov. 28.—The postmas
ter-general's annual report shows that
the deficiency for the year ended June
30, 1893, was $5,177,171, instead of
$1,552,423, as estimated by Wanamaker.
Instead of a surplus there will be a de
ficit of $7,830,000 the current year. It
ie estimated the gross revenue for the
year ending June 30, 1895, will be $84,
--427,748; expenditures, $90,399,485. The
deficit will be decreased a million and a
quarter by the fund taken from the un
paid money order account.
There are 610 free delivery offices. The
extension of tbe free delivery in towns
of 900 to 4000 would require an addi

THE NEW TARIFF SYSTEM.
The ways and means committee will
tomorrow devote attention to the inter
nal revenue Bchedule of the new tariff
system. Tomorrow Messrs. McMillin,
Bryan and members of tbe sub-commit
tee on internal revenue, will meet and
begin the formulation of tbe internal
revenue and income tax provisions. The
income tax schedule will involve con
siderable labor. It still appears tbat
the increase of the whisky tax, if any
be made, will not exceed 10 cents per
gallon, and the changes in tbe tobacco
schedule will be very slight. The whole
income tax question has been opened up
anew, and it is now possible tbat the

per annum and over.

Six weeka ago a committee of manufac

This afternoon they started for Wash

of the act in every way. They will

Paris, Nov. 2S. —The Kepnblique
Francaise (newspaper), commenting on
the new American tariff hill, says:
"The tariff innovations proposed by the
bill are admirably balanced. It is as
imprudent to isolate one's self as to de
liver native producers over to an over

reduction in woolen, cotton, leather and
silk goods would have been desirable,
but the reductions propoeed will be a
