The commissioner is satisfied with the re

says that Levisse iissei ,s that the original

Orleans to lie corrected; that when the

THE EMPEROR -WILLIAM.
BULLETS SHOT AT Hllf FROM UN-
The Person Wlio Fired the Shots Ar
Who He is and What He Says Alsmt It.
Berlin, May 11. At 3:30 this afternoon
as the emperor William was rctum'"isf from
a drive with the ifrand duchess ot Uaden
several shots from a revolver were fired at
him in the avenue Unter-den-Linden. No-
Ixnly was hurt. The person who tired the
shots was arrested.
Aji accomplice, who attempted to rescue
the would-be assassin, was arrested.
The city is greatly e:;cited in conrequ. nce
of the event. Great crowds assembled ia
front of the palace, to whom tho emperor
several times presented himself, in acknowl
edgment of their expressions of sympathy.
Memiiers ot the ministry, foreign amtmssa-
lore and officers ot tlie armv hastened to
the palace, tendering their congratulations
upon the emperors e.capc. The would-lie
assar iim are in the han.Ls or the police, who
iecline to lurnish onv nilormnljon, and the
character of the perpetrators and motive of
their crime is unknown.
Two shots were fired hto the Emperor's
carriage from the sidewalk without effect.
The assassin ran into Middle avenue, fol
lowed by a crowd. An attempt being made
to capture him lie tired three more shots
and threw his revolver away. He was then
secured. The emperor's carriage was
siop'ied, and the footman sprang from the
box and assisted at the capture. I other
man, who, it is alleged, attempted to rescue
the one who fired the shot, was ai rested a
few minutes afterwards in Middle avenue.
The man who attempted to assasvnato the
emperor is a tinsmith named Eniil Mu::
hoedel. said to be from Leihsic. He was
taken to the nearest police station where a
preliminary investigation was instituted.
The accomplice arrested is named Krueger,
a hWcr belonging to Berlin. There were
unceasing demonstration! licfore the palace
throughout the evening. Dense masses
were streaming in from the remotest suburbs
to manifest their loyalty and s iiipathy,
sinking the national anthem. The emperor
went to the opera and Royal theatre last
night and received great ovations.
EXAMINATION OF THE WOU.D-nE ASSASSIN.
Berlin. May 12. At the official examii
ation of Ha'del, the prisoner stated that he
was a native of Leipsic and was born in
1857. He denied that he fired at the em
peror. He affirmed that he was without
work and intended to shoot himself public
ly to show the rich the present condition of
the people. He stated that he shot once at
himself and could not account for the oth
er three shots which were wanf'ng in the
chaiiilter of the revolver. He thought
that he might have discharged them 'i
absent-mindedness. The prisoner whs in
possession of several Socialistic and Demo
cratic writings, tickets ot membership ot
several Berlin Socialistic unions and the
likeness of two Socialistic leaders. He
declared he Mongol to no pari.., but was
an anarchist, the enemy of all political par
ties, to the present condition of society and
public institutions. It further resulted from
the investigation that Hodnell formerly at
tended socialistic meetings near Leipsic
The other prisoner, Krueger, appears intio-'
cent, and is reported to have been liberated.
He was arrested because he endeavored to
protect Hoedel against the assaults of the
Telegrams congratulating the emperor on.
