HURTS FRENCH PRIDE
All Paris Enraged Oyer
Prince Henry's Defeat.
EXCITEMENT OX THE INCREASE
Itiporta That Henry tacked Nerve
Dnrtuc the Duel Serve to Fan
New Yokk, Aug. 16. A dispatch to
the World from Paris says :
Paris is intensely excited over the
royal duel in which Prince Henry of
Orleans was severely wounded by the
Count of Turin, a nephew of the king of
Italy. The sale of evening papers on
the boulevards was almost unprece
dented, while on all sides knots of Pari
sians, gesticulating with their customary
energy, were discussing, almost quarrel
ing over the encounter.
Although the Republicans would fain
console themselves with the reflection
that Prince Henry's overthrow has
killed Orleanism for a generation, French
pride, irrespective of party, is deeply
hurt by the Italian Prince's victory.
Happily, the mood of the Parisian
changes quickly and often, for if the
present temper were to last, interna
tional complications would be unavoid
able. The French anger is further stimu
lated by persistent reports that Prince
Henry was inferior to hia opponent in
nerve more than in swordsmanship, and
was completely overborne by the violent,
reckless onslaughts of the count. The
opinion is said to have been expressed
by the count's seconds that if Prince
Henry had had proper self-control he
had an opening in the second bout which
would easily have enabled him to put
the Count of Turin hors de combat.
The count is also said to have die
played less than his usual skill and lit
erally to have overborne his antagonist
by his desperate onset from the-very
According to one account, the wound
in the abdomen from which Prince
Henry was disabled was the result of bis
own malagresse in parrying a fierce
lunge of his opponent.
It is said that the prince collipsed in
stantly, and that the count looked on in
alarm when his surgeon, approaching,
asked to be permitted to dress the
wound on Turin's sword hand which was
The swords used had been rubbed with
an anti-septic, but it is needless to say
that if Prince Henry has sustained a
wound perforating the intestines the
danger of peritonitis is great and will
iiot have passed for some days.
It seems to afford appreciable gratifi
cation to the average Parisian that the
encounter was a reality and not a sham,
but that was due to the earnestness with
which the Count of Turin entered
General Albertone's seconds still claim
that the prince must meet him when he
ia restored to health.

Parsons, of Hartford Is at
Death's Door. '
New York, Aug. 16. A dispatch to
the Herald from Hartford, Conn., says.
James S. Parsons, the fugitive presi
dent of the Continental Life Insurance
Company, has returned after ten years,
a penniless man, to pay his debt to
nature. It is said that he has an incur
able disease of the stomach, and can live
but a short time. He has been living in
Canada since the wrecking of the com
pany, but for a year or so intimate
friends have known that he was in
Massachusetts, latterly in a Boston hos
pital. He was hunted out of the United
States by officers of the law, and returns
in the hope that he may breathe his last
in his own home.
State Insurance Commissioner Fyler
began the prosecution against him in
1877. It was believed that Parsons' de
falcation amounted to between' $100,000
and $150,000, though what he had done
with the money was a mystery. Four
indictment for making false returns to
the insurance commissioner were made
out against him and against the com

President McKlnley Said to Favor
New York, Aug. 16. The Herald's
Washington correspondent wires :
In all probability one state will be
added to the American galaxy during
McKinley's administration. The presi
dent, it is understood, looks with favor
upon the admission of New Mexico,
it is likely that the territory will be the
next, to join the Union.
The bill for admission will be intro
duced in the house in the next session
by Mr. Ferguson, who is himself a Dem
ocrat with silver sympathies, and the
eagerness with which the sound-money
Republicans will rally to the support of
the bill is an open question.
Arizona will make in the house re
newed pleas for admission through her
delegate, Marcus A. Smith, of Tucson,
and Senator Carter is expected to add
his efforts in the senate.

One of the Chief Causes la the Mili

This relation between stature and
health is brought to concrete expres
sion in the armies of Europe through a
rejection of all recruits for service who
fall below a certain minimum standard
of height, generally about five feet.
The result of this, says Popular Science
onthlj'.is to preclude the possibility of
marriag-e f or all the fully developed
men during their three years in the
barracks, while the undersized individ
uals, exempted from service on this ac
count, are left free to propag-ate the
species meanwhile. Is it not apparent
that the effect of this artificial selec
tion is to put a distinct premium upon
inferiority of statue in so far as the
future generations are concerned?
This enforced postponement of mar
riage for the normal man implies not
merely that the children of normal
families are born later in life that
would not be of great moment in itself
it means far more than this. The ma
jority of children are more often born
in the earlier half cf married life, be
fore the age of 35. Hence a postpone
ment of matrimony means not only
later children, but fewer children.
Herein lies the great significance of the
problem for us. Standing armies tend
in this respect to overload succeeding
generations with inferior types of men.
Safely Hid $100,000,000.
The discussion in coneotion with the
renewal of the charter of ithe Bank of
France, which has just been prolonged
by the national legislature until the
end of 1920, has brought to light the
measures that were adopted during the
war of 1870 for the preservation of the
specie and valuables confided to the care
of the institution to the extent of over
$100,000,000. It seems that the whole
of this treasure was packed into some
25,000 cases, marked "explosive pro
jectiles," and was shipped by rail to
Brest, where it was "cached" in such a
manner in the arsenal that, even had
the Germans captured the port, they
would never hnve discovered the hid
ingr place. Chicago .Journal.

fact that the American people are now anxious to give their attention to home and
business interests. To meet this condition, politics will have far less space and
prominence, until another State or National occasion demands a renewal of the
fight for the principles for which THE TRIBUNE has labored from its inception
to the present dav. and won its ereatest victories'.
