BANISHED BY THE EMPEROR.
Lieutenant Fcdor Von Ranch an Exile
by Imperial Mandate.
Ni:v Yokk, May 21. A recent epi
sode in the Imperial family of Ger
inany gave rise to apprehensions for
the mental soundness of the ruler.
With many admirable qualities, the
iuiincror William is undoubtedly ai
creature of intense and erratic impulses,
and of violent passions. Upon occa
sions his friends have been filled with
grave forebodings concerning his
ability to controThis own violent tem
per. The Emperor is naturally of a jealous
and imperative disposition. It was the
influence of these traits that led to the
banishment from Berlin cf Baron
Fcdor von Ranch, a handsome Lieu-
tenant and Adjutant of the Second
Uattalioii of the Eleventh Brunswick
regiment of Uhlans, the crack dragoon
corps of the Imperial Guard.
The entire scandal has been success
fully suppressed in Germany. Upon
his banishment Von Rauch came to
(Ills city. The Emperor, influenced by
trivial incidents, accused the Baron uf
harboring loo deep an admiration fur
the Empress, whose character is as
pure and noble as any lady's of the
European courts. Owing not less to
his personal qualities than to the pres
tige of his rank and lineage, liaron Von
Rauch had been favored with the
friendship of the present ruler of Ger
many long before the latter became
Emperor. The 13aron was received in
the imperial family on the footing of a
trusted friend and favorite companion.
In his profession he is said to have
evinced such decided military talent
that he was promoted about a year agn
to the adjutancy of his regiment, not
yet having completed his twenty sixth
year. The fact that no man of his age
ever before held the adjutancy of a
regiment in the army may indicate the
value of such distinguished recognition
of his ability. The Baron's futuie
seemed on all sides a brilliant one.
One day in September, 1S91, Baron
Fedor von Rauch said good-bye to his
mess comrades and sailed for New
York, an exile from Court, from family,
from society and the fatherland. His
departure naturally created much sur
prise. Gradually, however, it became
whispered that Von Rmch had been
banished after a scene that came near
resulting in a tragedy. This was pre
vented, it is now understood, by the
timely intervention of Count Waldersee
and the elder Baron Von Rauch. It is
told in Berlin Court circles that liaron
Fedor had been making an afternoon
call at the Palace, as usual, bringing
with him the notes of a new musical
composition of his own. While Von
Rauch was chatting about music with
the family the Emperor left them to
attend a meeting of the Council in an
other part of the Palace. Von Rauch
and several other persons remained in
the Empress' apartment.
When the Emperor returned, about
an hour afterward, it is said that he dis
covered the Empress and the young
Lieutenant alone, conversing in low
tones and apparently so absorbed that
they did not notice the Emperor's ap
proach till startled by the first outburst
of his wrath. The scream of the Em
press brought Count Waldersee and the
young man's father hastily from an ad
joining appartmcnt just in time to save
their young kinsman from personal
violence, perhaps death, at the hands
of his infuriated sovereign. So enraged
was William that those old friends had
the greatest difficulty in quieting him.
At first he swore that the young
liaron should not leave the palace alive.
He even demanded that swords should
be brought and a duel fought then and
there. When at last persuaded that
such action would be disastrous not
only to himself and his family but to
the nation, he consented to allow young
Kauch to depart.
"Go," the Emperor is alleged to
nave exclaimed as his former friend
retired, "go from this house and from
Germany forever. Your life is pro
tected by the curse of a crown which
denies me the poor rights enjoyed by
every other husband in Germany, even
to the lowest.
The young liaron came to New York
last September accompanied by Direc
tor Ballin of the Hamburg-American
Packet Company. He was at once
placed at a desk in the New York
office of the company, under Mr. Carl
Schurz, the Amer.can manager. There
he was known simply as Mr. Von
Rauch, and nominally served as a
clerk. With the exception of a short
trip to Boston, he remained in New
During the entire time of his stay in
this country it is suspected that he was
more or less under the surveillance of
agents or representatives of the German
Empire. The liaron returned to Ger
many as suddenly as he came, on April
2d last, sailing on the Normannia.
During the recent illness of the elder
Baron Von Rauch, preceding h.s recent
death, which was undoubtedly hastened
by the misfortune which his son's in
discretion brought upon himself and
upon the Imperial family. Countess
Waldersee is said to have used all her
innuence to secure the Emperor's per-
mission for the return of the sun to his
dying father's bedside. Even after the
old llaron's death the Emperor could
be induced only to allow liarun Fcdor
to return to his native land for a period
long enough to assume possession of
his inheritance, and insisted that his
stay in uermany snouiu not exceed a
fortnight. This condition, in fact, was
with turn only sufficient baggage for
the journey, and returned to New York j
within six weeks of the day of his de-
