Muller, for a time confined In an in- sane asylum, drew a revolver upon Officer Charles DIetz of the traffic quad, shortly before noon to-day and killed him. Running around to the tartled people on the sidewalk Mul- ler emptied his weapon and started on a run through main street. One bullet slightly wounded Charles Doherty, who was passing by, another missile pros- trated Leopold Rago, a barber, and at the hospital later it was feared he would die. After a long run Muller was captured and taken to the police station where he made the building re- sound with yells and shrieks for the Rockefellers and Vanderbilts to come and bail him out. Muller is said by the police to have been writing beg ging letters to members of the ander- ilt family in !STew York, and the police ave been asked to arrest him. Muller as been confined in the state asylum or the insane at Middle-town He wns eleased some time since as harmless. One of the reasons for confining him, t is understood, was the character of he letters he sent to President loosevelt at the time.
