TITLE DOES NOT , AVAIL
Noble Would-Be Visitor Once
Attempted Suicide for Love
of Miss Mary Duke.
By Tnlm-imtionnl Nowa Service.
NEW YORK, Oct. Tjiidovico Pig
natolli, Princo d'Aragon, si'ion of one
of Spain's noble families and son of
Don .Jaime, pretender to tho throne of
Spain, is a guest of Uncle Sam in the
detention pen at Ellis island. As a re
sult of confidential information sent to
tho commissioner of immigration, the
haughty grandeo was Tofuscd permission
to land on his arrival today from
On his former visits to this country
and particularly at tho Lime he was pay
ing court to Miss Jdary Duke, daughter
of Benjamin L. Dulcc.. the tobacco mil
lionaire, t.ho prince camo ashore sur
rounded by a large retinue and was per
mitted to visit these shores unmolosted.
Since then his conduct in Prance tvas
such that he is under a ban of expulsion
and it. was from information received
from the French government that the
prince "went to Kllis island today.
When an inspector notified the royal
visitor that, his character and financial
standing would have to be investigated
before he would be able to proceed to
Virginia, tho Princo d'Aragon choked
with indignation. As the full moaning
of the inspector's information dawned
upon him, tho Spaniard recovered bis
composure and said haughtib":
"It is impossible for me to go to Ellis
island. I am a prince of ro'al descent
and you insult me. Is this the prated
liberty of America? Mr. .Inlcs Bach,
the banker, will be at the pier to meet
mo and the Spanish consul in New York
will see that the insult that has been
paid me is made tho subject of an offi
cial dispatch to Washington. "
Tho inspector ropliod that in tho first
place aliens with suicidal tendencies
were not welcome visitors here. Fur
ther, ho explained that it had been
learned that the prince had been- ox
pclled from Prance by reason of his con
nection with a notorious gajubling club
where members had a code of honor pe
Tho prince had denie'd that he had at
tempted to commit; suicido in Paris as
reported, but after tho inspector had
questioned him closely he admitted that
ho had shot himsolf by accident. His
detention, however, had -nothing to do
with tho answers ho made on board, as
it had been decided beforo the liner
reached quarantine that the confidential
notico from Paris was snfliciont to no
cossitato ft special hearing.

ship news reporters the princo stated
that he hnd no desire to kill bimself

Senator Kearns Testifies.
While the Consolidated witnesses had
testified that this development had re

$50,000 to $100,000. all of the Coali

that tho valuation would not be in ex

to place any valuation on tho Andes.
Senator Kearns briefly testified as to
his experience in mining, extending over
a period of thirty years. Tie said ho had
