THE Flags on all Public Buildings at Half Mint, and Residences and Business (Houses Being Draped In Solemn Black —Frederick William Proclaimed Em peror of Germany With the Title of Frederick III. BERLIN, March 10.—Emperor Will lam's death, which occurred at 8:30 a. in., is officially confirmed. BERLIN SHROUDED IN GLOOM. SPlags at Half-Hast, Publio and Private Buildings Draped in Mourning, and Business at a Standstill. BERLIN, March 10.—The feeling of in tense relief and gratitude which pervaded all classes in Berlin last night when it became known that the emperor was still alive was succeeded by one of profound grief when the official announcement was made of the death of the grand old warrior at 8:30 Friday morning. There is no doubt whatever of the truth of the sad news. IJll \wv\ mVif'rr! KMPHITOR WILLIAM I, OF CF. 1131 ANY. Immediately-after his death was made known the imperial standard on the palace was lowered to half mast, as were also those on public buildings and em bassies in the city. Private citizens are rlraping their houses in emblems of mourning. All Berlin is shrouded in silence. The public was warned that there was no longer any hope for the aged monarch by the following official bulletin, which was issued at 7 o'clock a. m.: "After a slight flickering of the vital powers uuring the early hours of the evening the emperor's weakness contin ued to increase, until now everything points to an early dissolution. Signed, JJAVEB LEXTHOI.D." The sad intelligence was at once tele graphed to the crown prince at San Remo. A dispatch from there says im mediate preparations art being made for the departure of the crown prince, princess and Dr. McKenzie by special train for Berlin. HIS LAST NIGHT. False Rumors of His Deatli Caused by i» Fainting Spoil—His l.itst Night oil Earth. LONDON, March !).—The city was wild with excitement to-day over the con flicting reports from Berlin concerning the condition of the royal patient. All day long a deluge of dispatches lias flooded the paper offices, the exchanges and news bureaus, and the patriotic Germans could find in their differing statements reason for either joy or sor row. Toward afternoon, however, the telegrams became ominous and pointed to but one conclusion, and still later it the day came the news of Etnperor William's death. The London papers announced the death on their bulletins at 6:15 o'clock, and then the cxcitement was intense. The paper offices were be seiged and thronged, and even the morn ing papers all had enormous posters dis played conveying the sad intelligence to all who passed. This, however, proved to be a mistake, which was undoubtedly due to a fainting .spell with which the emperor was seized between 5 and 6 o'clock in the after noon, which had every appearance of a final collapse. At 1 a. m. he was sleeping soundly and his breathing was regular. He has taken substantial food and appears to have a good appetite. When awake he is fully conscious, showing an inter est in what is going on around him. He expressed regret that he was "causing so much trouble." Gen. Winter feld started last night with dispatches tor the crown prince. Many of the princes have now left the palace. The empress and the grand duchess of Baden remain with the emperor throughout the night. An Aid to Division.
