the subject Intimately, say that the

Yacht Trip Planned for Wooing
Is a Most Dismal
(By the International News SerTlee.)
Palis. July 13. News has Just reached
Paris that tha Duke and Duchess of
Manchester's party, which sailed away
bo gaily from the sunny shores of the
Mediterranean last spring, went all to
leces in flowery Japan.
It will be remembered that the ducal
host and hostess were not the principal
figures in that interesting yachting
party. Mrs. William B. Leeds, the
wealthy widow of a New York banker.
was the real heroine and Lord Falconer.
son of the Earl of Klntore and tjueendam,
aspirant to the. hand of Mrs. Agnew-Chapman-Van
Valkenberg, was the hero.
Sir Francis Lascelles was of the party
by way of chaperenage. The duke and
duchess had hoped to make a marriage
between tne Impecunious Lord Falconer
and the wealthy widow, and where could
tiic wooing be done mora discreetly and
effectively than In the yacht Seml which belonged to Anthony
Drcxel? - -
Widow, Bored, Beturns.
But in this case the course of love
did not run smooth, for on reaching
Yokohama the widow thought she was
bored and made a bee line for Paris,
and the whole party went to pieces on
the sunny shores of Japan. Mrs. Leeds
traveled back by the Tsanssiberlan rail
road, but not with any member of the
party. .,
Loid Falconer passed through Paris
a few days ago on his way to London,
hut he did not see Mrs. Leeds, who had
been called to America by the Illness
of her father. The Duke of Manchester
Is n. .w on the steam yacht Warrior, near
Cistellama. and the duchess is believed
to be In Tanderagee castle, Ireland.
Never was a yachting party more dis
rupted or a courtship cruise more com

Berlin, July 13. Tho kaiser is not
to be outdone (by his son as an author
and has long been busily engaged writ
ing or rather dictating his memoirs,
since he succeeded his father in 1888. He
Is devoting at least half an hour daily
to this work.
The memoirs will only be published
according to the kaiser's present inten
tions 10 years after his death, but if the
work displeases the next kaiser It may
never bo published unless revised.
From a person who enjoys the kaiser's
absolute confIdencfiund long friendship,
I luarn that the memoirs ana extremely
frank. They deal with much sincerity
with his ministers, his children and his
fellow- European-sovereigns,-- The me
moirs will include a pen portrait of
Edward VII, detailed the. day after that
monarch died, and which will throw a
strong and somewhat constitutional light
upon the relationship of the two men
who for 10 years held Europe s fate In
their hands. The kaiser acknowledges
that tho repeated achievements of Ed
ward, his easy genial way, his success
as a diplomat and even as a dandy dis
pleased him, for his own natural gifts
run on quite different lines.
Falls to Outdo Edward.
The kaiser, It seems, once tried to
outdo Edward In tho art of dressing.
He ordered some sensational hats of
varied hues, but especially. gray. Ed
ward's favorite color for head gear, to
be hrought to Potsdam palace, previous
to his departure for Willcni Wlllems
hope, where he was to meet his royil
kinsman. He tried them all on In the
presence of the kaiserin. but W llliain
had to recognize that hlu hats lacked
chic and that he never would succeed
In getting the butter of Edward as a
Each meeting the kaiser had with Ed
ward left the former dissatisfied and
uneasy. Each time the same words
rose to his imperial lips: "What will
come out of all this? Did I commit
At one point In his memoirs, tho
kaiser expressed his regret that another
European ruler should always be act
ing as his tutor.
Towards his own family the memoirs
are not over tender. His wrath at tho
crown prince after the latter's Incau
tious demonstration In the reichstag at
the Morocco debate Is set down in vivid
phrases. Toward the kaiserin the me
moirs bear witness of unfailing respect
and affection. The kai.ser, who so sel
dom takes advice, reveals the fact that
In certain different circumstances fie
consulted his spouse and acted with
profit as she advised. The kaiser ex
presses only One regret regarding the
kaiserin and that concerns her delesta
tlon of court functions in which he rev
els. She loves to retire early In the
evening and looks on the January court
balls as tortures. The kaiser relates
how one evening at a stale ball the
kaiserin had Just received the homage
of M. Blhourd. the French ambassador,
but owing to her natural timidity she
could not find a fitting reply to the
carefully considered words of the
The Incident was embarrassing and in
different political conditions might have
been considered an affront to the French
representative, but the kaiser, who sees
everything, came to his wife's rescue
and at once found a fitting reply which
adjusted the matter. Several Incidents
of this kind are recalled. But tho
stories which will attract most com
ment If ever published tonceins the re

Prince Von Buelow's retirement was the
sequel to a wild scene which took place
at the Berlin palace several days after
the publication of the London imily le
egraph's interview. From that day Bue
low's fate was sealed.
The kaiser's relations with Americans
of distinction are also curiously de
scribed In the memoirs which display
a most vivid interest affecting America
and especially American capitalism. His
friendship for J. Plerpont Morgan is
frequently referred to, while his admira
tion for John D. Rockefeller, Andrew
Carnegie and others are matters of fre
quent record. He speaks also readily
of his 'Interview with ox-President
Roosevelt, but confesses he was imme
diately disappointed. The kaiser and
(he crown prince have made up their
dispute which was seven or eight months
old. They met again In Bernn at (lie
bedside of the sick empresh and the
kaiser accepted the invitation of his
son to Inspect his regiment at Dantzcl.
Socialists Prepare Protest.
Socialist leaders arc preparing to cir

of a manifesto condemning th cruelty
practiced by officers on common sol
diets in the German army. The Social

Princes Patricia met Princess Mar

LondOij, July 13. "A more fiendish
and abonirlnable case It has never been

at Marylebone, in passing sentence of
six months' hard labor on Ellen Cole

It appeared that the defendant had
been living with a married man, and
was keeping the child for a sum of 60
cents a week. She admitted that she
had given way to drink, and was ac
cused of grossly Ill-treating the child.
Dr. Ryan, of 89 Kentish townroad stated
that the child was fairly nourished, but
was suffering from rickets and whoop
ing cough, and when examined on May
15 had 19 bruises about the limbs and
body, as" if It had been struck with a
blunt instrument and pinched. There
were also several Inflamed welts on its
cheeks, which were evidently inflicted
with the swish of a cane; three abra
sions under the eye, like scratches, and
scars on the nose.
On June 8 the doctor said he saw the
child again, and then found that it
scarcely had a sound inch on its body.
There were numerous bruises in addi
tion to those he had previously seen,
while on the child's forehead were ten
short weals that appeared to have been
caused by a cane split at the end. All
these Injuries were about two days old,
and there were several others some
days older. A lodger in the house spoke
of hearing the child cry frequently, and
She had heard the child srfyl "Don't beat
me, mummy." f
Defendant expressed regret, and In
passing sentence upon her, Paul Taylor
said the child must,, have looked upon
her as the devil incarnate, and upon its
own existence as a veritable hell.

(By the International News SerTlee.)
Paris, July 13. "Let us smash the
infamy' Let ua smash the infamy!"
This Is the shibboleth which has been
resounding through the legislative and
municipal halls of Paris during the past
few days. The Infamy referred to Is
the coining of the. necessities of the
people Into gold by spe illation, especial
ly In wheat, flour and sugar.
It Is calculated that there will be a
bread famine in Paris later in July, and
Ithe. muiyclpal , council of ; Paris recpni-
mends that the communes or trance

advocacy of a similar purchase by the
nation for the benefit of the people was
recentlv presented in the New York.
j rromTKer" Whole discussion in the
chamber, senate and city council, it is
quite clear that speculation Is the enemy
of the people. Georges Berry, deputy
for Purls, a man - whose name stands
for civic virtue, says:
"At Toulon, Bordeaux and Limoges,
the municipal councils ask how long
they will be able to give bread to the
population. Thus we may have a short
age of bread all over : ranee any day.
We must not close our eyes so as not

serious because In France bread Is the

While our people are crying for bread

"Why should people be allowed to goJ

Rome, Italy, July IS Columns hare
been written regarding the personal ap
pearance of tha - po pe,- his part - In the
ceremony of ths consistory and the
pomp and splendor that surrounds the
papal court, yet relatively little is
known ot his Intimate personality. This
in part, may be explained by reason of
the ceremony that surrounds ths pontiff
and by reason of ths cars that has been
taken to guard him from the approach
of 111 lntentloned plebeians.
It has always seemed to me, how
ever, that behind the church ceremonial
Hhere nauet be- a humair aid some
touch of interest outside tha stern
formality that guards every publlo
move of Plus X, that would brin ths
holy father, disciple of Christ, on a
plane with his fellows. It Is with this
Idea In mind that I sought ths streets
contiguous to the Vatican rather than a
plea for a reception.
The Vatican itself Is a magnificent
old pile whose spires, roofs and gables -rise
high above an encircling grove of
ancient trees that decorate its gar
dens. The quiet serenity of the vine
covered masonry, the peaceful majesty
lent by the hand of ages and the atmos
phere that seems to surround ths hal
lowed spot through its long association
with the ecclesiastical history, make its
Imposing architecture the most , promi
nent in Rome.
This feature is all the more accentu
ated after a visit to the ancient Roman
amphitheatre, and the great aqueducts
and mausoleums of the Roman em
perors. These, in truth, are Imposing,
but they contrast sharply with ths
buildings that house the pope and form
the font of the Roman Catholic chureh.
TneTRohiun buildings are inanimate and
magnificent in their death, While the
Vatican Is animate and doubly impos
ing through the soul that lives within.
Ths Vatican Idas Apart.
The Vatican, indeed, lies apart and
distinct from tho rest of the city. It
Is not removed through its isolation,
but through Its atmosphere. On the one
hand Is the magnificent palace of King
Victor Kmmanuel, busy with the toll
of war and feeding the countless ave
nues that lead to the Ghetto and on
the other hand is the palace of the pope,
vast, silent and Imposing, set in an at
mosphere of its own and as much apart
from the busy city as though it were
surrounded by a desert
In fact its air of isolation Is such
that one. wonders in what light it is
viewed by the surrounding millions who
ha.:e . helped to effectually remove it
from the plane of mundane things by
the act that severed church and state
some half century ago. It is not neces
sary to go far to receive the answer.
Plutocrat and plebeian alike observe
the ancient fealty with all the devotion
of true believers. There is little of the
anti-Catholic demonstration that Is
prevalent in free speaking America. And
It seems that the church, through Its
severance with the state, has gained
rather than lost by the transaction,
Of the pope himself, his rites and
character there are a thousand stories
current. Plus X, the son of a poor
peasant. Is hailed everywhere as the
father, and to his people he has always
retained those simple manners and cus
toms that marked his novitiate as par
ish priest and teacher of the peasants.
Something beside mere anecdote,
however, forms the foundation for these
stories of simplicity and nobility of
character. There Is In Rome at the
present day physical proof of the pon
tiff's former obscurity. This proof lies
with hia two sisters, Lucrecla and
Teresa, unobtrusive peasant women whs
have followed the pope from his' humble
"'"SIstsM''XTvs"SM Pops.
These women dwell In a llttLe house
not a stone's throw from the Vatican.
The Inside of their dwelling lg extreme
In its simplicity, and the only ornament
of the bleak walls-being a huge portrait
of Plux X.
Both of these sisters are old, well
along in the sixties, and both of them
observe a quiet regime and simplicity
of dress that makes them inconspicu
ous to the peint of obscurity. But if
their habits are mouse like when ap
plied to temporal affairs they are very
lions when concerned in the welfare of
their brother.
Lucrecla, the cook, In particular Is
keen and crltlral in tho interest of the
pontiff. It was she whom he called
from llleso when he was first attacked
by the rheumatic gout that has proved
so painful and so dangerous during his
later years. And it Is she, assisted b
her sister, Teresa, who now supervised
the pope's meals and tends him In his
Of the pope's culinary tastes and vrr
sonal habits it is said that he is frugal
to the point of self denial He adheres
to the simple peasant dishes of his
youth and observes a Spartan regime.
Another interesting figure of the
pope's household is his brother, Angela
barto, a humble postman, who spends
what time he may in company with the
pontiff and his sisters. It Is his brother
upon whom the pope relies for that
masculine companionship 4hat is a part
of every mortal. And these two old
men, both handsome and with thick
white hair, alike, and yet not alike, ar9
the closest companions.
