No Conspiracy Against the Kaiser.

ANCONA (Italy), March 30.

The Chamber of Indictments, which has been investigating the case of the Italian anarchists who were arrested in Alexandria, Egypt, on the charge of plotting against Emperor William at the time of his recent visit to the Holy Land, finds that there was no conspiracy against the Emperor, but that the bombs found scattered with a view of creating a belief that a plot had been arranged.  The court, however, has committed thirteen anarchists for trial by the Consular Court at Alexandria, on a charge of belonging to an illegal association.
