MAY LEAD TO WAR.
The Italian Minister Demands His Pass
Washington, March 31. Baron Fava
has presented to the state department
his recall by the Italian government and
has demanded his passports. The de
partment was greatly surprised because
it was wholly unexpected and because
the investigation into the Kew Orleans
matter was not completed.
The reason for the recall is that the
king of Italy is dissatisfied with the
progress of the adjustment between the
two countries in regard to the New Or
This action can be construed into no
other way than an act of open hostility
on the part of the Italian government to
the United States with which it has here
tofore been on friendly terms.

Washington, March 31. It is now re

it -was at Florence that the eighteen

Italian officers have refused to give im
prisoned persons any reasons for their

Confirmation of the Reports of the Mas
sacre of the Ghorks's
Calcotta, March 31. Official des
patches received here today by govern
ment officers confirm the report of the
massacre of Ghorka's at Maripur in - the
province of Assam. About 470 of these
were native soldiers which were slain by
hostile tribesmen of Assam, after two
day's fighting. The fate of the British
officers in command of the Ghorkas and
chief commissioner Jas. W. Quinton is
still uncertain but the'viceroy of India,
Marquis of Lansdowne believes that all
the officers and officials have either met
death, or that they are held as prisoners.
In addition to the disaster at Manipur
it is believed that the force of British
troops composed of ' a detachment
of 200 soldiers of Bengal infantry
and about eighty Ghorkas who were
marching from Shillora to Manipur in
order to reinforce the escort of chief
commissioner Quinton, have been at
tacked and share the fate of their com
rades at Manipur.

Pittsburg, March 31. With the ex

A Tragedy of ITnusnal Sadness Reported
From New England.
Boston, March 29. A tragedy of un- i
usual sadness is reported this evening
from the little town of Newport, on the
Avon river, near Windsor. Two days
ago the Viody of Madeline Duval , aged 22
years, the pretty, young wife of Lucien
Duval, was found drowned in an icehble
in the river. She was an orphan, and
had only been married two years, and
was devoted to her husband. ' The body
showed that she had not been long in
the water. The remains were taken to
her home, where her babv was found
crying of hanger. Search for her bus-
Dana lonnu turn wandering aimlessly
about in the woods, almost a mile from
his home, evidently semi-demented.
This led to the suspicion that he might
Vie responsible for his wife's death, and
he was watched. The. funeral of Mrs.
Duval took place today, and during the
excitement attending the obsequies he
eluded his keepers and fled. This
evening his body was found hanging in
a barn, dead, in his pocket was a letter
saying ever since his marriage he had
been trying to ascertain who his wife's
parents were, she being an adopted
child. He had just received information
from St. John, N. B., that she was no
less a persons than his own sister, his
mother and father having seperated, he
f oing with his father to Prince Edward's
sland. Soon after the seperation a
daughter, Madeline, was bora, and the
mother, too proud to ask help of the
father, never told him of the birth. The
girl was adopted and brought to New
port, where Duval met and wedded her,
and one child was the result; Being
very religious, they were overcome with
horror at the discovery, which evidently
drove Mrs. Duval insane and led to her
rash act. Horror and remorse at her
fate also drove him to a similar end.
Everything Points to the Establishment
of Such a Government In Norway.
New York, March 29. A Christiana
letter to the Tribune says that in recent
years Norwegian statesmen have often
made the boast that the next European
republic would celebrate its birth at
Christiana. Since the fall of the min
istry recently Herr Stang was heard to
.. "The belief seems to be general that the
requiem over the last conservative min
istry has been sung."
King Oscar virtually admitted bis
powerlessness to stem the republican
movement in Norway when he abandon
ed his resistance to the nomination of
Steen as prime minister. The latter has
forced the crown to surrender one by one
nearly all its Norwegian prerogatives.
Steen, at a public meeting a few weeks
before becoming premier, said :
"Dnless we obtain the fullest govern
ment, the fullest equality with Sweden,
the union between the two countries will
be completely dissolved. We all hold
our beautiful land to be far too good to
Everything points, therefore, toward
the final separation of democratic Nor
way from conservative Sweden, and to
the early establishment of a republic at
WHAT PROVOKED THE CHALLENGE.
The Story of the Perfidy of the Son of
the Ex-Minister to Roumania.
Vienna, March 29. Marie Glasier is
the name of the pretty circus girl who
charges M. Rudolph Vacaresco, son of
the ex-minister to Roumania, with steal
ing her diamonds. He first borrowed
and then pawned the jewels. The young
man gave the girl the impression that
he would make her his wife, and man
aged to borrow from her not only her
jewelry, but nearly all the money she
earned while at Vienna. What is looked
upon as making the matter worse, he
used a portion of the money thus obtain
ed in paying court to the daughter of the
German embassador. The latter discov
ered his perfidy : and made the facts
known to the Princess Reus with the re
sult of Vacaresco's ejection from the ball.
The Prince of Reus persists in his refus
al to fight a duel on the subject.
THE MURDERED ACTRESS.
She Had Worked In Seattle, and Was
Well Known There.
Seattle, March 29. Mabel DeBabian,
the variety actress, who was shot and
killed in the Casino theater, at Spokane
Falls, Friday night by a discarded lover,
at one time was a performer at Cort's
theater in this city. When the Mabel
Francis Burlesque company stranded in
Portland last winter, the woman was a
member of the troupe. She came to
Seattle and for a few weeks was at the
Standard. Then she went to the Casino
at Spokane. Stage ' Manager John
Baker, of Cort's theater, said this even
ing that he knew the woman well. He
did not consider her a success as a
variety actress, and he could not imagine
why she ever took to the stage, tor she
had no talent nor training, and no idea
of how things should be done. Were
not the circumstances of the tragedy so
serious, he would consider the reports
sent out from Spokane .concerning the
woman as very amusing.
Tiffin's Temperance Warfare.
Tiffin, O., March 29. The temper

After his saloon was demolished Miller

CHEAPER SUGAR TOMORROW.

New York, March 31. The duty on
sugar comes off at 12 o'clock tonight and
wholesale stores will open then to meet
the demand from retailers. A difference
of two cents per pound will, it is expected,
result in enormous sales as retail markets
are practically bare of stock.
TREATED AS A JOKE.
Dr. Gentry's Theory of La Grippe Mi
crobes Declared Improbable.
New York, March 29. The startling
story from Chicago to the effect that Dr.
William T. Gentry, of that city, has dis
covered the microbe of la grippe, and hei
believes they drop down while the earth
is passing through vast spaces of "sand
dust," has caused a sensation among the
physicians of this city, and excited crit
ical comment not at all lavorable to the
medical reputation of the alleged discov
erer, .several prominent doctors and
expert pathologists were interviewed to
day regarding the importance of Dr.
Gentry's discovery, and were unanimous
in declaring that it was altogether im
probable and utterly without scientific
value. Most of the medical fraternity
here upon the story as a huge joke and
decline to discuss it seriously.
