TO KEEP HIS PROMISE
Ascend* Throne of Bulgaria, Af?
ter Saying He Would Not
BY 1*4 MAJUtllSE UE rOXTBHOY.
JUST at the present moment, when'
the Bulgarian army U In the field,
it is Interesting to recall that bad
...ng Ferdinand kept bis promises to,
bis crony, kinsman and comrade, Arch-,
duke John of Austria, the latter might
atlll be in the land of the living, in-1
stead of having vanished from human;
ken somewhere between La Plata and;
, Valparaiso, under the name of Joan
Archduke John was. after the com
pulsory abdication of the late Prince i
Alexander .of Battenberg, a candidate
for the throne of Bulgaria much fav-j
ored by the Bulgarian dictator. Stem-1
bouloff. and by the other leading
statesmen of the country. Emperor
I Alexander IL of Russia was. however,
anxious that the Bulgarians should
\ Sad ao foreign prince willing to ac- j
cept their throne and used all the in-J
fluence he possessed to prevent anyone j
from accepting the offer. The manner'
in wtich his brother-in-law. Prince;
Waldemar of Denmark, apurned the
crown, furnishing a notable illustra?
tion of the Csar'a attitude la the mat?
ter, and It was through his interfer?
ence at Vienna that Emperor Francis
Joseph Insisted that Archduke Jonn;
should decline the vacant throne at
Sofia. When It was ottered to Prince
I Ferdinand of Coburg, the Czar tele?
graphed to him protesting against bis
acceptance, and caused the Russian
amhaasador at Vienna. Prince Lobanoff.
to personally assure Ferdinand that If!
he declined to go to Bulgaria he would
assure him a most brilliant military
I career In Russia
Ferdinand solemnly promised both
Prince Lobanoff In person and Emper?
or Alexander by telegraph, that under)
. no circumstances would he accept the;
Bulgarian crown and within twelve I
hours afterwards started for Sofia, and,
1 aacended tte throne there j
Before doing so. he had likewise;
promised Archduke John that be would
' intrust to htm the creation and the j
i training of the Bulgarian army. Arch-!
duke John was at the time accounted;
i oae of the cleverest of Austrian cea-i
era la Bat being extremely modern In
: his ideas, he did not find favor with
; the elder generation of Austrian jmb
' mandera, notably, the generalissimo.
' Field Marshal Archduke Albert, who
were too firmly wedded to the tredi
' tlons of the past to relish any lnno
. vations or reforma
' Bat whoa Archduke John prepared
. to join Ferdinand at Sofia, and to take
charge of the Bulgarian army, sever
, lng his connection with the Austrian
j army la order to do so. Ferdinand de
| clined to fulfil hla pledge and to in?
trust htm with nay command. Probe
, bly he feared that once Archduke John
I had out himself adrift from the Aus?
trian army and established himself as
j a military power at Sofia, he might
! renew hla aspirations to the Bulgarian
- throne, and develop lato a dangerous
rival. Possibly, too. be did net wlah
J to still further antagonise the court of
Vienna and the Austrian Emperor. At
; nay rate, be ref need to carry eat hla
? promise to Archduke John, and it waa
j then that the latter, realising that
! there waa ao outlet for his enperabun
' dant energy, hla activities and hie
' talents as a prince of the blood in
' Europe, resolved upon the rennnela
. Uon of bis rank, and to seek hla for
I tone in the New World.
* la reply to a latter of Inquiry from
I a reader. I would say that the pro
! coeds of the sale of Archduke John's
1 belongings which has Just taken place

In Austria?will go to hla nephew.
J Archduke Joaeph Ferdinand, now the
i chief of the Tuscany branch of the

indeed, the auction waa ordered. It

than the Stubel family, as sacs, has

There la oae point mars la the pop?
ular story about Archduke John that,
deserves correction- It baa atwasa
bees advanced to an argument in fa
vor of hie barn* really dead (aa 1
firmly believe him to be); that If he
had aarvtved his diaappearance it waa
?trance that the Austrian crew and I
officers of his Bailing ship. Santa Marg?
arita, on which to left La, Flau for
Valparaiso, should never have given
any sign of life to their relatives ,
Now ttds argument does not how!

when the ship reached Buenos Ayres
from Europe, tile skipper, Sodich. and
the first officer, Sucich, as well aa moat
of the Austrian crew, Dalmatian* every
ope of them, aad recruited by the ex
archduke at Trieste, abandoned the |
veaael, declining to aall any longer:
The ex-archduke, who had received
hie papers aa sailing maater on pass-'
ing his examination at 'Trieste, after
careful studies In navigation, had In?
sisted upon a as urn Ing actual command
of his trap, and on giving directions to
the officers sad crew on the trip across
the Atlantic, which they declared to
be life-endangering and. foolhardy.
They declared that they would not,
intrust their Uvea any longer to so
reckless a lunatic
The remainder of the crew left him
at La Plata, and the consequence waa
that he sailed from thence for Val- '
paralso without a single ose of the j
officers and men who had accompanied
him across the Atlantic from the |
Adriatic, and to was compelled to con- j
tent himself with a eouple of mates,
and a s: ew which to had picked i up j
along the docks st La Plata, aad who
may be described aa having been the'

aa able seamanship waa concerned.
Those few who were aware of the
circumstances under which be sailed
from La Plata for Valparaiso to round,;
that terribly perilous point known as
Cape Horn never expected to aee him I
again, and tn the last letter which his.
wife. Milly Stubel, wrote to her sister. ,
Jennie. In Berlin, dated tbe 12th July

sailing of the Santa Margarita from
La Plata, aha concludes: "To-day we
leave here, and the voyage will, it is
said, take not leas than two months.
God knows whether we shall survive
it. Ton poor Milly." On tbe same day
the ex-archduke addressed a letter to
his lawyer at Vienna, tbe late Dr. Von
Haberler: 1 sail to-day from here

From that day to this no authentic

that the archduke long, before he left,
namely, even as **rry*aa whoa thirty
years of sea, had become completely
bald, losing every vestige of haar on
