Scaulan said that many of
stories circulated lately relating to
discovery of sensational evidence were
without foundation in some cases and
overdrawn in others. It is evident the
main hope is centered ia Mrs. Andrew
Foy as far as new evidence is concerned.
It is said she will testify that Coughlin,
Cooney the Fox, and Martin Bourk fre
quently held secret interviews in her
house and that that fact would strengthen
the circumstantial evidence to be pre
sented. It is expected t he trial will con
tinue until the middle of January.

After securing adjournment In the
Coughlin trial State's Attorney Kern said
that a plot to bribe the jury had been dis
covered. Developments of a highly sen
sational character are promised, and if
Kern's plans do not miscarry he will prob
ably ask Judge Tuthill to remove two
jurors when court convenes. Ru
mors of Jury bribing flew thick
aud fast around the court room, and con
siderable significance was attached to
Mr. Eott urn's statement to the court that
he had "grave reasons" for requesting the
adjournment. . The state's attorney is also
quoted as saying that ha would ahortly
send the conspirators to the penitentiary
on undisputableyevidence. Both Kickham
Scaulan and Mr. Bottum left Judge Tut

Berlin, Nor. Sa Great excitement was
caused among tha attaches of the chancel

parcel addressed to tha chancellor, sup

was received at tha chancellery. Colonel

open the parcel, when be noticed a few
grains of gunpowder falling out of it, lie
immediately dispatched the parcel to a po
lice station, with the iiniMtion that be
thought it aa infernal whine.
The police placed the parcel In watet
and gave it a thorough soaking, aftet
which they examined it. When tha wrap
inss were removed a striking cap was
found attached to what proved beyond
doubt to be an infernal machine. One re
port states that this cap exploded while
the police were examining tha machine,
but owing to the contents of the parcel
being saturated with water failed to
cause an explosion.
