man?uvres this uutumn and was go?
ing to looped the new Austrian prov?
ince? of Bosnia and Herzegovina, clear?
ly show that all Austria, as well as
the Emperor, realizes that he is no
longer Kmperor except in name.
Trouble has been brewing for some
time. The Kmperor has been seeing
every ?lay his nephew assuming th>
part of Austria's ruler. In fact, for
(several years the Kmperor has ?keen
little more than a ngurehead, the arch?
duke doing all the work and deciding
?everything of importance. The Km?
peror was particularly hurt when he
learned recently that his nephew had

but to Belvedoc Castle, the residence
?f the archduke. The Emperor ex?
presses his opinion of this in th?e, bit-1
terest terms, protesting against the
archduke's "hurry to see him dead."

"I don't want to'live on the other
side any more." she said. "There are
too many unhappy memories associ?

But since the news of yesterday tell?
ing of the seaaaaination of Franz Fer?

that Mrs. Hayne will change her mind.
The aged Kmperor has been dying
by inches for months, so it is freely
said in Vienna. Optimistic reports of
his condition are issued at t'req'ir i '
intervals by th?.? chamberlain at the

Une particular reason why Mrs.

stern opposition t?. any irregularity in
the Hapsburg succession.
After Rudolph was found dead just
twenty-five years ago a rather grew
