MORE NAVAL VESSELS NEEDED.
Secretary Tracy Undecided Where to
Send the Charleston.
Washington, April 7. There is still
need of more naval vessels in the Pacific,
and Secretary Tracy is embarrassed to
decide where to send the Charleston,
because she is wanted in no less than
three places at once. The senate com
mittee to visit Alaska would like to have
the Charleston carry them on their trip,
but Secretary Tracy and Commodore
Ramsay, chief of the bureau ' of naviga
tion, after consideration of the subject
today, decided that she could not be
spared for this purpose. She is needed
to increase the force in Chilian waters,
and it is probable that ehe will go there,
though the condition of affairs in ; the
Hawaiian islands is such that she may
be sent there. American residents of
Honolulu and other points in the islands
have written to the secretary of state,
representing that English agents are
seeking to undermine American ascend
ency in Hawaiian affairs, and urging
that a strong naval force be sent to Hon
olulu as a notice to European nations
that the United States does not propose
to reunquisn its virtual protectorate over
the islands. Secretary . Tracv has the
subject under consideration, and it is
probable tbat the Charleston will remain
at Mare Island until further information
is received from both Honolulu and
Chili, which will enable him to decide
at which place she is needed most.

Death of the Morganatic Son of Arch
duke John of Austria.
London, April 7. A Vienna dispatch
says the death of Count Franz von Mer
an at Abbazia brings up one of the most
romantic stories connected with the lm
perial family of Austria. The count was
the issue of a marriage of the Archduke
John with a voung lady named l-raulem
Anna Plochel. The vounsr ladv was the
daughter of a respectable tradesman of
Vienna,- and her beauty attracted the
attention of the archduke while he was
driving one day in the streets of the
capital. Prince of the imperial house
are noted for their gallantry almost with'
out exception, but the archduke found
t raulein Plochel proof against his rank
and blandishments. Being desperately
in love he married her, thereby causing
a great shock in court circles. The em
peror at first was deeply grieved, but at
length resolved to lorgive.tne match,
and raised the voung woman to the no
ble title of Countess of Meran, although
she was never recognized as an Austrian
nrincess. Her son inherited her rank.
but not his fathers, and both lived to
endure the miseries that follows the
mesalliance of royalty. The countess.
forsaken by her husband, spent most of
her time in educating her son, and he,
in turn, proved a faithful companion to
his mother, ms death is the last chap
ter of the story. ,
THE FUNERAL POSTPONED.
An Ohio. Woman, Supposed to be Dead,
Returning to I.lfe.
Lima, O., April 7. Mrs. Francis
O'Neill, a cousin of sheriff O'Neill, of
Allen county, died suddenly Saturday
morning. As deceased was apparently
in the best of health up to the moment
of her death, it was attributed to heart
failure. Today signs of returning life
was noticed by the relatives. Her body
became warm and twitched convulsively.
All the funeral ' arrangements, which
had been made, were postponed, but up
to this writing she had not recovered
consciousness. The relatives have de
cided that, even if death appears certain,
they will keep her remains in a ventilated
vault until death is certain beyond pre
adventure. This action is on account of
a similar occurrence in the case of ber
brother five years ago. Mr. Lawler, her
brother, in 1886 died, apparently, and
all arrangements were made for his
burial. On the day set for the funeral
he returned to life, and is today a promi
nent business man, and a leading poli
tician. The relatives of Mrs. O'Neill
fear that she may have experienced . a
trance, as did her brother.
NEW ORLEANS MAFIA.
Report That the Government Will
to the Bottom of the Affair.
Washington, April 7. There is reason
to believe that the government has de
cided to go to the bottom of the New
Orleans affair, and with that end in view
has ent to that city a number of the
best-trained detectives in its employ,
who are to act in connection with the
United States attorney there and report
to him. The whole matter is to be care
fully investigated, beginning with the
assassination of Chief Hennessy and end
ing with the killing of the accused men.
The charges as to the existence of the
Mafia in New Orleans, the charges of
bribing the jurors whose verdict stirred
the people to violence, and the quarrels
between rival detective agencies there,
are all to be weighed and reported upon
by this experienced force in the govern
ment's pay. This course has been de
termined upon, it is said, because Mr.
Blaine realizes that in the end, in order
to be able to deal with the claims of
Italy, he must know the whole story.

frills and lace, and is bringing him up
