The information which this gentle

surprise to those who have been ac
customed, of late years at least, to re

GERMAN PRESS SATISFIED
Thankful for Resolve to Bridle Im

No Cloud Shall Come Between
Him and His People.
BERLIN. Nov. 21. Emperor 'William
made his first appearance In- public to
day since his Interview with Chancellor
von Buelow, last Tuesday, when the
Prince urged upon his majesty the ne
cessity of speaking and acting only on
the advice of his responsible ministers,
and he gave a striking example of his
readiness to observe the obligation then
laid upon him.
The occasion was the centennial cel
ebration of the City Council. When
the Emperor arose to ascend the
tribune. Prince von Buelow stepped
forward and Impressively handed him a
printed sheet, and the Emperor, Ig
noring his custom of speaking extem
poraneously, confined his remarks to
what was on this paper.
No Cloud Between Them.
After a few formal expressions, his
majesty made the following references
to recent occurrences:
I chtrlsh a firm confidence that the bond
of loyally and aifertlon which, from aneU'nt
times In our fatherland, has so . closely
Joined the King and cltisena, the Prince and
lh people, always will remain unbroken.
IT. accordh-g to the words of the Prussian
National Hymn, "the sun cannot always
shine and dull days mint occur." then the
rising clouds should never throw thoir
shadow between me and my people.
Says Press Is Satisfied.
The Nord Deutsche Zeitnng, refer
ring to the Emperor's declaration to
Prince von Buelow on the occasion of
the interview this week, says the Ger
man press has almost unanimously ex
pressed sincere satisfaction therewith.
An overwhelming majority of the Ger
man nation feels , deeply thankful for
the Emperor's highminded resolve in
the matter of his Imperial duties, as
set forth in the Reichsanzeiger. it
The nation possesses a guarantee of the
continuance of that confidence between the
crown and the people which In the past has
given rise to such solendid achievements.
Ills majesty's resolve appears the more high
minded, because it was taken in s?ite of
the undeniable exaggerations of the public
criticism, which the Emperor must have
felt was unjustified.

foster-father, A. W. Demlng, and his

a fortune aggregating in amount $700,

Strange Story of Old
RICH AMENDS MADE TO WOMAN
Theodore Bunnell's Romance
Revealed at Death.
SHE CONTESTS FOR ESTATE
Founder of Grand Junction Gives
Many Xotes to Woman on Whom
He Attempted Assault
LOS ANGELES, Cal., Nov 21. A suit
filed today in the United States Circuit
Court by Mrs. Melissa Z. Funk, of At
tica, Ind., to collect $20,000 worth of
notes from the $200,000 estate of Theo
dore P. Bunnell, late founder of Grand
Junction, Colo., and capitalist of Santa
Monica, Cal., reveals one of the most
remarkable stories ever recorded in
the annals of the Western courts.
By means of letters and promissory
notes alleged to have been signed by
Bunnell, which were filed today in
court, it is shown that Bunnell when a
young man in Indiana 50 years ago
made an assault and attempted mis
treatment of Mrs. Funk, who was then
Miss Melissa Zink, a lass of 13 years,
falling in which he was stricken with
remorse, which first forced him to
leave the country and throughout the
remainder of his life compelled him to
do penance for his act During the en
suing years he wrote many letters to
Miss Zlnk begging forgiveness, and
sent her numerous promissory notes,
payable from his estate, as a palliation
for the injury he had done her. These
notes are made out in unusual form,
showing the stricken 'conscience from
which the writer suffered.
Xo He'rs. Claim Rejected.
Bunnell, who had been a resident of
Santa Monica, a seaside resort of Los
Angeles, for many years, died at the
age of- 75, a year ago, in Colorado
Springs, his body remaining unclaimed
in that city for some days. He left no
heirs, his wife having died two years
previous to his own demise. His body
was finally returned here and interred
in Woodlawn cemetery. George H.
Hutton, of California, and William A.
Marsh, of Colorado Springs, are the
executors of the estate, which is lo
cated In California and In Colorado
Springs and Grand Junction. The exe
cutors have refused to allow the
claims of Mrs. Funk, and the suit
filed today is the result.
Xote Confesses Crime.
The first note is dated April 26, I860,
and with its accompanying statement
reveals the very heart of the whole
story. It is in this language:
Rob Roy. Ind.. April 20. 1800. I promise
to pay Melissa Zink or order. $.W00 for the
damage I did her In 18r, and for the love
and gratitude I bear to her I pledge my
estate and all 1 am worth with the payment
of this note after my death, by the person
that settles my estate, without coet to the
hearer. THEODORE BUNNELL.
My explanation no one will misconstrue
and blame Miss Zink. She is the most vir
tuous Kirl I ever knew. I love her with a
pure divine love; -would marry her if she
would marry me. I went to her home in
a. storms found her alone, so thought I would
. . -I assaulted her after a desperate
fight between us. She was badly hurt. I
gave up when she got an axe. She was only
13 or 14 years old at that time. I begged
forgiveness. She may tell the rest. She
never lie. THEODORE BUNNELL.
Wealth Does Xot Ease Conscience.
A few years" later Bunnell came
West and lived the life of a plainsman,
hunting buffalo and conducting a trad
ing store among the Indians. He ob
tained control of a large tract of land
and founded Grand Junction The win
ning of wealth did not, however, oblit
erate the thought of the misdeed which
rested upon his mind. Letters begging
forgiveness were sent continuously to
Miss Zink One of them, dated 1870.

Steel Company is to have a real Christ

The exuberant and unrestrained glee
and thankfulness , were caused by an
announcement today by officials of the

jority of the inhabitants of the town,
that the shops would be running in
full force by December 1. By that

re-opening last Summer have been
working on a short schedule.
The re-employment of thousands of
men means much also to the merchants
of the suburb.

Vamhill Growers Prefer to Make a
Better Display in Portland.
M'MINNVILLE, Or., Nov 21. (Spe
cial.) The proposed apple fair for
Yamhill County, that was to have been
held here on November 27 and 28, was
today called off by the committees in
charge. The reasons given for the
abandonment of the enterprise are
that it is impossible to interest a suf
ficient number of the leading horti
culturists to bring exhibits on ac
count of Its close proximity to the
state horticultural exhibit, to be held
in Portland the following week.
Desiring to make a good showing at
Portland, they must, of necessity, neg
lect the local display, and rather than
take the chances of an inferior ex
hibit here, the committee decided to
wait until next year and give an
apple fair worthy of Old Yamhill.
