BOGUS EMPRESS s
Boston Natives of Sunny Italy
Swindled by Alleged Au$-,
Boston, May 15A woman who
claimed to be Carlotta, the wife of
Maximilian, formerly emperor of Mexi
co, and brother of Francis Joseph, pres
ent emperor of Austria, has, according
to the Herald, left the city after secur
ing some $40,000 from members of the
Italian colony on the pretense that she
was the rightful claimant of the Aus
trian throne. The Herald says:
She is being sought by over one hun
died residents of the North End district,
who for almost eight years have Ween
paying her money to enable her, as they
supposed, to gam possession of the Aus
trian throne, upon which event taking
place she promised that those who helped
her would be made ministers and noble
men and be given vast estates.
Would Be a Duchess.
One woman, the wife of a. prominent
Italian, gave her $3,000 on the promise
that she should be a duchess. An organ
grinder contributed a few hundred dol
lars, all his savings, on the understanding
that he should be made^comt musician.
Hundreds contributed tens and hundreds
on similar assurances.
Many Italian residents secretly visited
her at her royal headquarters, a hand
somely furnished room in a dwelling-house
on the corner of two South End streets,
where the pseudo empress sat on an im
posing throne, resplendent In red cloth and
tinsel, and graciously allowed them to
kiss her hand on the occasions on which
they brought her tributes of money. At
effch Bide of the throne stood courtiers
and a bodyguard who clanked stage
Mysterious secrets such as would over
throw the present Austrian ruler were
credited to this woman. When she ap
peared In Boston eight years ago it was
mysteriously whispered among the few
in the North End that Carlotta, sister-in
law of Emperor Francis Joseph, was in
Boston in disguise, having escaped from
Brussels, where she had for many years
been confined in an asylum.
Italians are fairly familiar with Aus
trian history, and when they were told
that Carlotta had come here to collect a
few faithful followers on whom she could
rely, and enough money to return to
Austria and use in connection with her
all-powerful secrets, and that those who
aided her would bask, when she gained the
throne, in her royal favor, they believed
their fortunes were made.
Dashing Young Courtiers.
Carlotta's aides in this vast enterprise
were a number of select and dashing
young men of various nationalities, among
whom was one Moriarity, who represented
himself to be Crown Prince Rudolph, the
eldest son of Emperor Francis Joseph,
who in January, 1889, shot himself.
Recently the Italians were getting sus
picious and began to hint openly that
Carlotta and the henchmen were de
laying matters. Recent visits to the

chance of the blessed ol&s mug going to the
emperor's subjects at the finish. For that black
seawolf, Hambuig, looks like a winner from
her thick, stubby bowsprit to her mastcaps.
As a natural consequence of .the great vari
ety of racers entered for this event, the opinions
of experts differ as to the final result. The
little Fleur de Lis, while holding the sympathy
of all, would seem to have very little chance
of winning. She is stanch and can hold up
under a tremendous blow, but she is scarcely

CITY VETERINARIAN KEYS TALKS
OF THE WORK.
Says that He Thinks the Dairymen
Are Mistaken When They Say that
Cows Killed Last Week Were Not
Suffering From TuberculosisWork
Will Go On.
"Almost as many cattle have been
tested for tuberculosis in Minneapolis
as in the entire United States, outside
of this citv. That should convince al
most anyone that the health officers
of this city know a little about the
subject,'' declared Dr. A. A. Keys,
city veterinarian, in discjussing the op
position of the Minneapolis Dairy?
men's association to the cattle inspec-'
tion of the health department. The
association has appointed Dr. C. C. Ly
ford, as expert, to represent it when
cattle are killed after being con
demned by the tuberculin test. He
does not represent the association on
the state livestock sanitary board, as
has been stated.
According to the report from the as
sociation's meeting of Saturday evefaf
ing the dairymen have a laugh" on
the state board for having killed many
"perfectly healthy^' cattle after the
use of tuberculin as a means of de
tecting tuberculosis. It is announced
that the association has discovered
that one-fifth of the animals con
demned by the state board are "per
fectly healthy," this statement being
based on the supposed fact that two
cai casses of the ten cows killed last
week did not show tubercular lesions.
Examination Was Hasty.
I want to set the dairymen and the*,
public right on this particular inspec
tion and correct some misstatements,"'
says Dr. Keys. "Instead of ten cattle
there were sixty-three condemned, and
these were all killed one day last week
at South St. Paul by the inspectors of
the United States bureau of animal in
dustry. Of these forty-two were owned
by Riedell & Nelson and twenty-one by
D. D. Therres, both herds being located
at Fridley. One cow in the Riedell &
Nelson herd and one in the Therrejs
herd did not show tubercular lesions at
the post-mortem examination. This
does not prove that the disease did not
exist. On the contrary, the chances are
that both animals were diseased. The
examination was naturally a hurried
one and the inspectors relied only on
their eyesight. They examineid the
lungs, the lacteal and other pfpmitienf
glands, but the tuberejes might hav'e!
been in the spinal cord, or in sonue
of the minor glands or tissues of the
flesh. The lesions are undoubtedly*
there, tho it might take a microscopic
examination to reveal them. It can
not be said that anv animal was per
fectly healthy until a scientific micro
scopic examination has been made.
"In four years and four months
Minneapolis officials have tested 25,000
cattle with tuberculin and of this num
ber we have condemned about 1,500.
In only four of the 1,500 no" traces of
tuberculosis were found. altho the
chances are that all four were dis
eased. The United States bureau of
animal industry holds the tuberculin
test to be practically infallible, and so
do all authorities.
"We shall continue the work here, in
spite of all opposition. We have con
demned twenty-two more cows in the
Riedell & Nelson herd and these will
be killed at once. A representative of
the dairymen or anyone else will be free
to watch the post-mortem examina-
Dr. Corbett's Opinion.
Dr. J. Frank Corbett, city bacteriol
ogist, corroborates Dr. Keys in the
statement that the government officials
approve^ of the tuberculin test and Te
gard it as practically infallible. Ac
cording to government reports, 15 per
cent of all cows which have reacted
from the tuberculin test are capaCle
of producing tuberculosis. This consti
tutes a serious state of affairs.
