Berlin, Nov. 28. —It now appears tbat
Kmperor William, last Sunday received
an infernal machine from Orleans, simi
lar to the one sent to Caprivi. It wae
accompanied by a letter. Both were
delivered at the emperor's civil cabinet,
where its nature was discovered and it
was rendered harmless.
The letter which accompanied the
infernal machine sent to Caprivi, read:

gathered in February. This kind is not

The letter sent to Emperor William
with tbe iniernal machine bad the same
contents as tbe one addressed to Ca

of tbe two infernal machines was tbe
work of a crank is now abandoned, and
it ia believed tbe attempts upon the life
of tbe emperor and the chancellor were
due to Chauvinists, disappointed at the
slo'v work oi the Franco Russian en
tente, and who decided to take revenge
in their own hands.
The machine Bent to tbe emperor was
contained in a wooden box similar to
those used for dominos. At one end of
the box, near the bottom, waa fixed a
brass case filled with nitre-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 the 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

machine. Tbe French government has
promised the utmost aaßiataitoe in trac

and Miss Mary L. Yeargin, supposed to
have been drowned in Lake Cayuga,

Fresno, Cal., Nov. 28.—The work of
securing a jury to try Chris Evans was

men were examined during the day and

one. After the examination of the first

sel. He first described the tight at
Young's cabin, stating that tbe officers,
among whom was Vie Wilson, for whose
murder 1 Ivans is being tried, were com
ing down tbe trail. Tbey did not sus
pect they were in danger of an attack
and were totally unprepared. After
telling how Evane and Sontag began the
hostilities that resulted in the murder
of Wileon and Andy McGinniß, Attor
ney Tupper described the train robbery
at Collis by Evens and Sontag and the
murder by the came persona of Oscar
Beaver at Viealia. Having eetablisbed
the connection of the defendant with
these crimes, the speaker claimed the
officers were in pursuit of their duty
when ambushed and foully murdered
by the defendant and hie partner, John
Sontag. The taking of testimony will
begin in the morning.
A WILLING WITNESS.
Sensational Testimony In the Smuggling
Case at Portland.
Portland, Ore., Nov. 28. —In the
smuggling case, the principal witness
called by the government thia afternoon,
was Nathan Blum, a stockholder in the
Merchants' Steamship company. Blum
yesterday pleaded guilty to smuggling
opium, and it is understood that tbe
prosecution is relying on bis teetimony
principally to secure a conviction of tbe
others. Blum proved to be a very will
ing witness and gave hie testimony in a
bravado manner. He testified tbat from
March, 1892, to March, 1893, bis com
pany smuggled irom seven to nine tone
of opium into this port, valued at about
$200,000. He went into details, showing
that while his company was ostensibly
doing a wholesale grocery and shipping
business, their main source of revenue
waa from emuggling opium, which was
disposed of in this city and San Fran
Blum, W. B. Jacklingand Major John
Wilson, of Victoria. B. C, it appears
from the testimony, bought all the
opium in Victoria arid Vancouver, B. C,
and they put it aboard ateamera for this

barrels, and when the Bteamer reached
the Columbia river, a few milee from
the city, the opium was thrown over

Instead of a surplus there will be a de

is estimated the gross revenue for the

deficit will be decreased a million and a
quarter by the fund taken from tbe un
