FER0IIIAI1D VISITS NICK Czar of Russia Welcomes Emperor of Bulgaria Formal Dinner Given at Taarkoe-Selo. SSt. Petersburg, Feb. 21. Emperor Ferdinand of Bulgaria arrived here to day on, an imperial train whih brought him from the frontier. His re ception adhered to the distinctive cer emonial to royalty. Emperor Nicholas and the royal visitors who had come to St. Peters burg to attend the funeral of Grand Duke Vladimir, had already taken their places In the cathedral when Emperor Ferdinand arrived. A formal dinner was given at Tsar skoeSelo in honor of the vlsitng roy al representatives this evening. , where Mr. Hcbsacker was assaulted, which may have been the weapon us ed by the robbers. It was blood stained. Mr. Greaney took it to Chief Egan, who has tried to discover whet It could have come, but without re sults at last account. Mr. Hcbsacker is unable to give any description of his assailants, and Ihe officers are therefore working in he dark. The report is that one of the three negroes acted as u look-on!, while one struck Mr. Hebsackor and held him while the third took money. A negro who resides near where the assault occurred loid t;ie pol'ce yesterday that he heard Mr. Hchsack cr's cries for help, ana -started to ward the scene, but as he came cut of his gate was shot at by the rob bers, (tie of the bullets striking the ence near him. and he ran back into the house. A little laer lie and an other young negro carried the injur ed man to Mr. Galilean's home where he was cared lor. Mayor Parsons decided yesterday to offer a reward of $lm for the cap ture of the robbers, but Sheriff Dav'? had already done so on his own ac count, expecting that his action would be approved by the county board if results lollowed. The sheriff offers ,i reward of $1' for the arrest and con viction of the rascals, and offers some points which may serve as a clue, namely, that the pocket book taken was a black one bearing the imprin' of Paul H. Sehuh, tobacconist, on the inside and th.it the money stolen con miffed of a new $10 bill, five $3 bills, and two 1 bills. It Is stated that one of the negroes acted as a look-out, while another strurk and held Mr. Hcbsacker and the third robbed him. Word from the injured man last evening was that he was still stiff r Ing from the wounds on his hind, which consist of two ugly cuts. He is cheerful, however, and will nrohaUv be out in a few davs. wiih K. P. Fitzgerald as toast ma ter. Other members of the partv be side the alderman, were Chas. Schiit ter. E. L.
