PARIS. April . 35. Special.) Although
r.o autopsy stiiv be made on the body of
Puc de Cliaulnes. since Dr. Castex cer
tines that uc died of embolism of tha
rart. no doubt fimalns that the death
of the young nohlunaii' came a the re
sult of his ten years' Uabtt of taking sev
fral i kinds of drugs, especially morphine.
Dr. Caito pa- the D'iko was warned
several woJt ago that only prompt
cessation of the habit and prolonged
quiet would save his life. Never having
been subjected to any kind of control, the
Duke was morally unable to help out
his medical advisers by following their
Hounded by Creditors.
Moreover, the end was hastened by tha
Puke's financial troubles, which con
stantly succeeded one another, even after
his "rich American marriage." It was
r,o secrtt that the. ducal' couple was
hounded by creditors morning, noon and
night, who had obtained fresh judgments
against the Duke after his marriage.
Most of them were turned away from the
door unpaid by a special "superintend
ent." The Duke evidently did not mean
to pay his old debts wth his wife's
money, unless there was no other way out
or iu ;
Could Xot Abandon Vices.
A member of the family said this morn
ing: "Now that poor Emmanuel is dead, the
truth might as well be told. The real
difficulties In Uie way of the marriage
were made on this side and not on the
Shonts side. The Due de Chaulnes had
to have money and the Duchess d'Uses
and his other relatives hoped marriage
would settle- his habits and prevent the
development of his heart trouble by
ending his life of dissipation. Unfor
tunately, a man of 30 does not change his
riisjiotiitlan all at once. At all events,
the task was too great for the poor boy
who has gone."

Sen.-ntional Reports of Duke's
Heath Current In Paris.
PARIS. April S5. Notwithstanding
the official report that the Due de
t'haulnes died of natural causes, the
I'arla newspnpers print various ver
sions as to the manner and place of
his sudden demise. The Petit Journal
suys the Duke died in a small apart,
nient in a house belonging to his sis
t';r, the Imchess d'Uzes on the Rue Van
Dyke: He retired Thursday night,
according to the Petit Journal, and,
rot appearing Friday morning, a ser
vant entered the apartment and found
htm dead in bed. his features present
ing a livid appearance, as if decomposi
tion had set in. Beside the body, saya
the account, were bottles containing
cocaine, x ether and morphine. From
this the newspaper draws the deduc- j
tion thnt death was due to an over- 1
dose of drugs affecting his naturally
weak h'-art. .
The body .'of. the Due de Chaulnes was
ronWyol at daylight this morning from
the iintt-l to the Church of St. Philip. )
It was accompanied only by an under
take and his attendants and the Due d 2
l.uynrs, a cousin of the Due d3 Chaulnes,
mid the official head of the De Chaulnes
household. The cure of the church re- .
reived the roffin at the door. It was '
escorted to the crypt, and after a slmpl 1

pletion of Alie. arrangements for the fu

certain, however, that "the funeral and
Interment will occur at the Chateau de
Aprlarle," the ancestral residence of the
l.uynes. outdlde of Paris. -
The Duchess de la Kouchfoucauld and
Princess lialilzin, an aunt of the young
Duo, remained last night with the wid

noon the, Duchess went down to the
Chateau de Apririe. accompanied by the
Due da Duyneu. The false reports that
the Duc.de Chaulnes had died In his Bis
ter's apartments in the Rue Van Dyke
arose from tha desire of the management
of the Hotel- Dunghara to make It appear
that thet death of the Due had not oc

WASHINGTON, ' April Jo. Washing
ton society was severely shocked by
news of the death of the Due de
Chaulnes. It was well known to Amer
icans wi.o frequently visit Paris that
the Duke had for years been addicted
to the drug habit and had often re
tired from society 'r days at a time
while recovering fronr.. the effects of
too heavy administration of narcotics.
During his visit here last Spring and
at the time he was most ardently
suing for the hand of Miss Shonts the
Duke was taken violently III. and it
was said that ha suffered from a dis
tressing throat trouble, which required
a milk d.et Tor a week, and which so

KEEP OFF RAILROAD LAND
Mondell Wants Bonaparte to Warn
OKEGONTAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington. April 25. Chairman Mondell. of
the public lands committee, intends
seeing the Attorney-General and urg
ing him to make public a statement to
the effectithat, pending determination
of the suit to secure forfeiture of the
Oregon & California Railroad land,
none of the land remaining In the hands
of the railroad company or land claimed
by purchasers fiom the railroad com
pany will be subject to settlement,
entry or filing in any form. Unless this
w-arning Is given; Mr. Mondell says,
shyster lawyers ..will induce gullible
persons to settle upon this land tinder
the assurance that their settlement will
give them a preference right to the land
if It is later opened to entry.
Mr. Mondell says it is Impossible to tell
at this time what disposition will be made
of the land that may be recovered by the
Government. He Inclines to the opinion
that it'wlll not be opined under the gen
eral land laws, but will be disposed of
according to some law to be enacted by
Congress later on. His object In urging
the issuance of a statement by the Attorney-General
is to ward off a repeti
tion of the damage done to settlers in
Sherman County, who settled upon wagon
road land under a misapprehension but
in good faith, and who win subsequently
dispossessed and lost all their Improve
ments. It is his opinion that any psrson
who settles on railroad ' land now that
suit is to. be begun will acquire no valid
rights, but will certainly; be ousted when
suitB .are concluded.- It 'is his advice to
all Intending settlers to keep off .this land

FAILS TO HOLD UP SALOON
Masked Man Works on East Side,
hut Is Frustrated.
At attempt to hold up the saloon of
William Gottschalk. at East Nineteenth
and Umatilla street. Sellwood, a few
minutes before midnight, last night, was
frustrated by the presence of mind of the
proprietor, who, instead of standing with
his hands in the air as ordered, made a
rush for the door, so that h2 could give
an alarm. The would-be robber fired his
revolver at Gottschalk and missed him.
and, fearing apprehension, made his es
cape through the rear entrance.
That the robber was unsuccessful was
no doubt due to the presince in the sa
loon of Robert Jones and David Smith,
residents of the vicinity, whom the rob
ber ordered to join the saloonman, so that
he could more easily keep them covered
with his revolver.
It was when he turned to speak to
Jones and Smith that Gottschalk made a
rush for the door. The robber is de
scribed about 5 feet 8 inches In height,
weight about 100 pounds, and wore a
mask of a red bandanna handkerchief.

Point Duma shortly after 9 o'clock this
morning with 100,000 people assembled
along the shores to extend them a re
luctant farewell. No spectacle so
superb has ever been witnessed off the
Coast of Southern California unless It
was the arrival of the same ships a
week ago today.
Never before has such a multitude
gatheied along the shores of Santa

far beyond their normal capacity, men,
women and children slept last night
on the beach or In the canyons Just
outside Santa Monica, Others passed
the night on the floor of offices In the
City Hall and hundreds who had gath
ered at Venice whiled away the hours
before daylight by dancing to music
furnished by a band that gave a con
cert last night. As a final test many
of the sleepless, but eager sightseers,
finding that the restaurants were un
able to provide breakfast for half the
people, cheerfully sacrificed the - meal
for an early chance of a view some
where along the shore.
After various evolutions of the
divisions the fleet steamed in single
column the line extending from op
posite Santa Monica to the southern
limits of Venice, a distance of four 1
miles or more. Here was afforded the
most magnificent spectacle of the day.
Opposite Port Los Angeles the Con
necticut turned seaward. heading
straight for the extremity of Point
Duma, and one by one the sbips were
swallowed up in the tog. It was a few
minutes after o'clock when the
