An Artist who Commits Suicide lor Love ot i
Xi;w York, March 27. A cable from
London litis announced that Amelie Rives,
author of "Quick or the Dead"'' was the
cause of the suicide in Algiers of a brilliant
voung French artist named Jules Kenaud,
who was in-anely in love with her. Behind
this simple announcement there is it story
ofthe most inten-e and tragic character.
Henaud was a handsome young man. the
very ideal of an arti-t. He wa
of good family, from the south of France,
and lived in a respectable style on an
allowance made him by a rich untie, whose
heir he was. Kenaud'.s infatuation for the
sensuous American novelist developed be
fore he ever met her by residing her books,
and he became an apostle of a regular
Amelia Rives "cult" among his social set.
A resident artist who met lienaud last
autumn, when in Paris, told an interest
ing story today of the ravings and carry
ings on of this unfortunate love crazed
young man. Remind, it appeal's, was an
artist of no mean ability. Although
voung lie had established a name ior
himself with his fellow artists, but seemed
altogether unappreciative ot the honors
which the world could bestow. Heahvays
refused to take any steps looking to tlie
making of a name, and he worked at his
art for self gratification. He refused to
present anything for the judgment of the
salon, and unless interested in his subject
he would not take an order. His nature
was mild and impetuous, and though he
was not given over to extraordinary ex
cesses he led the wireless, loose life so com
mon among artists, especially in Paris.
Amelie Rives he worshipped a- a god
dess. Long before he eer saw her -he
seemed to him the very embodiment of
genius. Her pietuies, gleaned from the
American magazines, he had framed and
hung in profusion around his room. One
of his odd fancies was a painting of her
frescoed portrait on the ceiling of his
chamber just above his head. He declared
that her books were more brilliant than
those of Sanor Balzac, more true to life
than Meredith, and were only equalled in
richness of coloring by the poems of
When it was announced that Amelie
Rives was married and under the name of
Mrs. Chandler w;is to visit Paris, Renaud
was almost beside himself. The fact that
her marriage might deter his purpose never
entered his mind. He had been successful
with other women and he did not have the
faintest notion that she, for whom his
whole nature J earned, would oppose him.

Paris that he hung in the rooms a photo
graph of his fair goddess dressed m
Grecian costume, on the back of which
was her signature, which he claimed had

Frm that time on he haunted her foot
steps. For hours he waitetl outside of her
door expecting that she would come out
t' take her carriage. If he knew that she
was to a isit a studio or gallery he would
find an excuse to be there.
Just how far she countenanced the at
tentions of this handsome courtier is not
known, but he was constantly telling to
his companions of the smiles which she
had given him and the opportunities she
made to allow him to show her his devo

take his seat in her carriage, and. by send

elsewhere, get a chance to tell her of his
passion and insist upon an immediate
elopement, but from this foolhardy tiffair
he was dissuaded by a friend.
When Amelie Rives took up sculpture
he dropied his brushes and began to
mold. Whole pages of her stories
and poems he knew by heart anil
made his fellows sick by constantly
spouting. They came at length to look
upon him as a little daft, and pityingly

but we are not antagonizing anybody. The

TO PREVENT SMUGGLING.
St. Pacl, Minn., March 27. Collector
of Customs Edwards has received an order
from Secretary Windom which has created
a great deal of excitement among Canadian
Pacific railway officials, as it will have a
tendency to drive traffic from the line.
Mr. Windom says: "It appears that bag
gage corded and sealed leaves tue
United States at Xeche and is des
tined for points on the Pacific coast
via the Canadian Pacific Rail
road, which terminated on foreign terri
tory. The department is of the opinion
that the cording aud sealing of baggage
for transportation via the route named is
irregular. You are instructed to take the
necessary measures to discontinue the
cording and sealing of baggage for trans
portation via this route."
This order was issued to circumvent
further opium smuggling. Nearly all
the opium used on the Pacific coast
comes from Victoria, B. C. A ood
deal of it is smuggled into North
Dakota. There it is "put into trunks,
corded and sealed and taken through to
Stm Francisco as baggage. To break up
this system the customs officers have for
some "months been breaking seals and in
speaking all baggage. It will be annoying
to travellers who go through to the coast
on the Canadian road to have their bag
gage overhauled, but there stems to be no
other possible method of stopping the

THOUGHTS AROUND THE WORLD.
Ni:v Youk. Mtircli 27. The announce
ment of the Oxford-Cambridge boat race
in London was sent over the various tele
graph circuits Of the United Press within
one and one-half minutes of the time that
the bow of the Oxfords boat crossed the
finish line. This extraordinary feat
was accomplished through the court
esy and co-operation of the Direct
Cable company, whose office in this
city was connected by wire with that of
the United Press, the 'London office being
connected with Mortlake, thus practically
making a continuous wire connection be
tween the scene of the finish of the race
and the general ofiices of the Unitetl Press
on Broadway. The dispatch was filed
three-quarters of a minute after tlie result
of the race was known, and the actual
time in transmitting it to New York and
in sending it over the United Press circuit
was between forty and fort3'-five seconds.

necessity for an amendment to the present
law. He tisked the house to consider the
bill as an earnest attempt to do justice to
both the clerical and tithe payers in the in
terest of the country at large.
