The power of the |*olltlcal boss la b*'-

the great majority of the Democrat* favor

to the matter. Is it no* pitiful that such

It Is now thought probable that the
Cxar will not visit the Paris Exposition.
It was arranged that his visit should oc
cur about the middle of this month. The
police had gone over the situation very
carefully and announced that th* y felt en
tirely able to protect the Czar. At first
the assassination of the King of Italy
and the attempt on the life of the Shah
hud mode them timid. The chief of po
!lc- said that the chances were that all
of the leading anarchists would make
their way to Paris If the rzar should un
r.ouncc hi* purpos< to visit the exposition.
l-aer, he said to th*- government that
he had the situation so well In hand that
he thought the Ciar would be In no dan
ger If he should make the visit.
He pointed out to the government that
all of the leading anarchists were under
lurvHlhncc, and would !*• arrested the
moment they attempted to enter France.
Everything looked so ftvorabir that the
Russian minister in Paris was notified
that th* Czar could come to the exposi
tion without running any risk worth
I? was Just at this time that nn Inci
dent happened that made the Czar hesi
tate to accept the invitation, nnd caused
the French government to wish that he
would postpone his visit Indefinitely.
The Incident was this; The French
Presklent, M I/mbet, was on his way
to the exposition to distribute prize?,
when Alfred Jacquemurt, a half-crazy
waiter of one of the restaurants which
are so numerous along the principal ave
nues. broke through the cordon of guards,
and, springing upon the steps of the Pres
ident’s carriage, dropped & photograph of
himself In the President’s lap. He was
a harmless creature and declared that he
had committed the net simply to show
how easy It was to attack the President
in one of the principal avenues of the
The Russian minister at once communi
cated the affair to the Czar. who. while
willing to Ik* guided by his advisers in
the decision of the question oh to whether
or not be should visit the exposition, was
apparently Inclined to the opinion
that the Paris police did not have
as good a control of the situation In Pari*
as they thought they had Ami the chief
of the Paris police was evidently of the
same opinion. Therefore, the half-wit
ted waiter mny be the means of keeping
the Czar away from the French capital.
