Herman Hernandez, nineteen years old, who lives with his widowed mother at Brooklyn, in America, is in a cell on a charge of having attempted murder. The victim is John Sche- rer, 21 years old. A 22-calibre revolver was the weapon used. The shooting occurred at No. 23, Boerum-street. Scherer and Hernandez called there to see a woman known to the Erisoner and police as Katie Schwartz and Mrs. oertz. It is alleged that the woman greeted Hernandez coolly, while she kissed Scherer several times, and placed her arms about his neck. Hernandez, who v-atchecl these proceed- ings, walked up and down the room in anger. Suddenly he wheeled about, and, turning to- wards Scherer, muttered a threat, and hastily pulling a revolver from his hip pocket pointed it squarely at his rival, and pulled the trigger. The report of the revolver was followed by shrieks as Scherer fell to the floor with blood pouring from a wound in his face. Officers of the Stagg-street Station, attracted by the noise, appeared at the front door and ordered it to be opened. When they entered the par lour they found Scherer lying on his back at one side as if dead. Hernandez stood near by, with Le smoking pistol in his right hand. "Who killed this man?" asked the officer. "I shot him," replied Hernandez. An examina- tion by the policeman showed that Scherer WM still alive, and an ambulance was hastily sum- moned. The surgeon of St. Catherine's Hos- pital found the bullet in Solierer's nose, and, after removiijo- him to the hospital, extracted it. Small particles of lead were also found in both his cheeks. After a few hours at the hos- pital Scherer recovered consciousness and de- clared to the nurses that he was not injured seriously, and as dav dawned he got out of his bed, dressed himself, and Igft the hospital. He I' proceeded slowly to the poiice-oourt, where he appeared just as the doors were opened. As I Hernandez was led into 'the room by the officers Scherer arose from his seat and started towards the railing. He had taken but two steps when he threw up his hands, and. with a shriek, fell to the floor unconscious- Surgeon M'Namara removed the man tc 'the hospital, where his con- dition is considered serious. Justice Laimbeer held Hernandez to awa-it the result of his vic- tim's injuries. To a reporter, who saw iiini in ceil at the station, Hernandez told his story. He said lie had been mate on board a full-rigged ship until three moirhs When he left the vessel lie had quite a sum of money, a portion of which he gave to his mother. With the other he furnished a j/.a ;e for the w( man Sohwartz. "I loved the woman," paid he, ":111.1 when my money gave out I civj up tin floor. :tT,rl used to meet her at Boerum-street.
