Paris. Nov. 22.— The unveiling of Falguiere's j

on this wintry, tempestuous day, recalling the
rugged life struggle of the author of "The Human

The "Gaulois" publishes portraits of a score

FORMING A GREAT CARTEL
AUSTRO-HUNGARIAN IRON AND STEEL
Vienna, Nov. 22.— After several months' ne
gotiations the Austrian and Hungarian iron and
steel industries have succeeded in forming a
combination comprising twenty-three separate
l&hmenta, the capital of which aggregates
170,000,000. The new organization is not a
trust, but a cartel, or combination, under which
each establishment is worked separately, though
all are supervised by a central board, which
regulates the output and fixes prices. This car
tel includes practically every important iron
and steel interest in the dual monarchy, such
as the production of raw iron, bars, plates, rails,
nails and wire. The agreement will be effective
for ten years, expiring on June 13. 1912. The
Austrian and Hungarian cartels are organized
separately but worked jointly. The Austrian
combination has eighteen members and the
It is anticipated that this organization will
result in great improvement in the industrial
situation, which just now is exceedingly un
satisfactory, particularly in the engineering,
locomotive and wagon works branches. Of
twenty thousand machinists in Vienna, eight
thousand are reported to have been discharged
recently. The wagon and locomotive works in
other parts of the country are employing only
haif the usual force, and one result of these
conditions is a large increase in emigration,
particularly from the iron districts of Bohemia,
whence hundreds of persons have lately gone to
Cir.ada, Mexico and the Transvaal. The gen
eral situation, however. Is likely to improve
shortly, when extensive public works, including
the construction of canals and railroad bridges,
will be begun. These public works in Austria
will, it is estimated, cost $75,000,000, and In

MRS. GORE'S DEATH.
PARIS POLICE STILL GROPING IN THE
Paris, Nov. 22. — The police officials here admit
that they are making no progress toward the
solution of the mysterious death of Mrs. Ellen
Gore, and this fact is strengthening the theory
that the affair was one of accident rather than
of design. This view is so strong, especially
among the members of the Russian colony, that
De Rydzewski's advocate. Deputy Cruppi. to
day announced his intention of applying to the
court on Monday for the provisional release of
the accused. The authorities are likely to re
sist this motion, as they are not yet ready fully
to accept the theory of accident. Consul Gen
eral Gowdy also inclines against the accident
theory, but the American officials will not take
an active part in the prosecution. M. Cruppi's
efforts are due to the interest which the Russian
friends of the accused man have manifested in
him, scores of them having called upon Judge-
Ganneval to testify to his good character. The
callers included the counsellor of the Russian
Embassy, who is acquainted with the prisoner.
Dr. Morlur., who first arrived upon the scene
of the tragedy, has given out a statement Which
strengthens the friends of the accident theory.
He confirms the assertion made by Dr. Socquet
that the ball ranged upward, and concludes
that the tragedy was the natural result of the
ueapon being discharged accidentally by a fall
to the floor. On the other hand, one of the
American officials especially assigned to the
case says his personal inspection of Mrs. Gore's
body showed that the direction of the bullet
was almost parallel with the surface of the
earth, and that the point at which the ball
emerged from the back of the head was hardly
a. half inch higher than the point at which It
entered above the eye. This Lonflicts with the
theory of the French physician, and tends to
strengthen the murder theory.
Letters and telegrams in the possession of the
police show the circun. stances of the meeting on
the day of the tragedy, and exonerate Mrs.
Gore from the suspicions which might arise from
her presence in De Rydzewski's room. One of
the letters shows that she wished to see De
Rydzewskl. Thl3 letter he answered by tele
graph, saying that he was suffering from a
sore throat and that it was impossible for him
to go out. As a result of his inability to leave
his room Mr?. Gore went to him. Some of the
officials contend that the visit was of a business
nature, asserting that Mrs. Gore's remittances
had not been received, and that she went to her
musical friend for temporary assistance. This
theory is apparently borne out by the statement
that a check for *»SU, dtawn to the order of Mrs.
Gore. Is said to have been found oy the police In
De Rydzewski's desk. The existence of this
check, however, Las not been fully established.
owing to the reticence of the police.
Consul General Gowdy has received a cable
message from ;he attorney, Mr. Butler, of Mex
ico City, asking that Mrs. Gore's body be given
kindly burial. The Consul General's quick ac
tion prevented the following of the usual cus
tom of burning unclaimed bodies in lime. He
wrote to the morgue authorities regarding the
matter, and the funeral has been fixed for
day afternoon. The interment will be in the
Boulogne Cemetery. Many artists intend to at
ter.d ihe obsequies.
A cable dispatch has been received by a for
mer friend of Mrs. Gore here from a New-York
lawyer, announcing that the latter has in his
ision a will executed by Mrs. 'lore last De
cember. The details of the instrument, however,
are not given.
The examination of D* Rydzewski will be he.4

HUNTER SHOOTIXG AFFRAY.
IT WAS MURDER. SAYS CONSUL GEN
SAYS MINISTER HUNTER.
Washington. Nov. 22— The State Department
to-day received reports from Dr. Hunter, Min
ister at Guatemala City, and Consul General
McNally, at the same place, regarding the case
of Godfrey Hunter. Jr.. and Secretary Bailey,
of the American Legation there, who were par
ties to the shooting affray resulting in the death
of William Fitzgerald yesterday. Mr. McNaily's
latest advices, give the affair the aspect of a
shocking and cold blooded murder, making it
appear that Secretary Bailey was a party to the
crime, holding up Fitzgerald with a revolver in
front, while Hunter shot him from behind.
Minister Hunter's statement is a flat contra
diction of this report. He says that his son
Godfrey and Secretary Bailey, while sitting on
a bench in a public park, were attacked by Fitz
gerald, who struck young Hunter and snapped
a pistol, which failed to explode. Hunter there
upon shot and killed him. The existence of a
conspiracy between members of the American
colony, including Consul General McNaliy. is
charged by Dr. Hunter. It is known here that
a bitter personal feud has existed for several
years between Dr. Hunter and Mr. McNally.
The State Department will wait to hear from
the Gautemalan Government before taking ac
Guatemala City. Guatemala. Nov. 21. — William
A. Fitzgerald, of Grand Rapids. Mich., was shot
and killed to-day by W. Godfrey Hunter, Jr.,
son of the United States Minister. Hunter fired
the shots from behind Fitzgerald, with James G.
Bailey, of Kentucky, secretary of the United
States Legation here, standing by with a drawn
revolver. Both ran away with their revolvers
in hand until arrested. They are now at lib
erty through Minister Hunter claiming im
munity for them. It is asserted that Fitzgerald
had no chance to defend himself, and that he
was an inoffensive man.
The lives of the Hunters and that of Bailey
are threatened by indignant Americans.
