Prince Henri Removed From the
Field Hors.de Combat.
PRICKED IN THE ABDOMEN
The Immense Populnr Interest In
tbo Knconnter Compelled the Com
batants to ilnlce It a Serlons Affair-The
Italian Army Xow Vin
dicated and Turin Is a Hero.
Paris, Aug. ID. The duel between Prince
Henri of oilcans and the Count of Turin, a
nephew of King Humbert, which grew
out of statements made by the prince
PRINCE VICTOR EMANUEL.
regarding the conduct of the Italian pris
oners who were captured by KingMcnelik
during the recent disastrous campaign
in Abyssinia, took place at 0 o'oclock this
morning in the Hois des Maiecbaux, about
ten miles from Paris.
The fight was a desperate one. The
prince wa severely wounded and was re
moved rrom the field hors de combat. The
count was slightlj wounded.
The plate where the meeting occurred
Is a favorite dueling ground.
Certain cynical perwms decline even now
to regard the affair erhm4y, and describe -it
a a "horrible accident" on the field of
honor. A majority of the Parisians, how
ever, treat It as an international event of
the incht tragic imparlance. The victim is
the hero of the hour, and bulletins from his
bedbide .are read with breathless Intere-t
on the Kilevards.
The interesting invalid has only to ex
press the desire and France will place all
her dc-Uuies In his hands, so, at least, the
volatile enthusiasm of the crowds which
throng the streets would Indicate.
Notfiing, iiideed, has thrown Paris into
such a lever of excitement since President
Camot was assa-mated. It is hardly
necessary, in recording this most sensa
tional event in the recent history of man
kind to leprodnce the many columns of
patriotic rhapsody which fill the special
editions of the Paiis newspapers.
Tee teirible story when compressed into
more modest proportions is, about as fol
lows: The two principals realized yesterday
that th tremendous public intere&tin their
affaire d'honneui forced upon them the
choice tetween a real duel and exposure to
sueb penalties of popular ridicule that their
reputations would not survive. The con
ferences between the seconds became
more numerouc and solemn than ever, the
veil of myrtery was wound ostentatiously
around every feature of the affair and every
punctilio was strictly observed.
Principals and seconds alike knew that
the eyes of Europe were upon them and
acted as though the fate of the universe
w in their keeping. It was really su
premely ridiculous. AH manner of false
reports r-ere Industriously circulated, partly
to whet public curiosity and partly to con
ceal the time and place of meeting. It
was announced that the fight would not
take place on Sunday, owing to religious
reasons. Tills proved a complete ruse,
and the esger populace went to bed
Saturday night expecting that the combat
would ucrm Monday. Consequently, only
privileged confidants were present when

"Either combatant may maintain the
ground he gains, and each will be allowed
a space of fifteen metres within which to
advance or retire .
"Each assault willlastfour minutes, and
the combat v.-ill be resumed in the positions
occupied by the combatants, and will only
terminate on a decision to that effect by
the four seconds, or on the advice of the
doctors when one of the adversaries Is
manifestly In a state of inferiority.
"Tlie conduct of the meeting will be
entrusted alternately to the parties, lots
being drawn at the commencement- This
arrangement ifc madeowing to the objection
of Prince Henry to entrust the direction of
the encounter to a fifth party.
'At a later meeting on the same date
the Bois des Marchaux were chosen for
the encounter, and the rendezvous was
fixed far 5 o'clock the next morning."
The report then formally announces that
the meeting was held as arranged, and
"Tlie combat lasted twenty-six minutes,

Tlie doctors on both sides examined the
wouud and declared that Prince Henry

and precautions observed in the arrange

accounts aie derived from the seconds or
physicians. The following Is the most
Interesting btory available, compiled from
Information no given
It must be explained by way of preface
that the Count of Turin had insisted on
one particular point. He wab ready to
cross swords with Prince Henry in France,
but on the one express condition that not
a living soul besides tlie principals, sec
onds and medical attendants should be
present on the scene of combat.
It was between 3 and -1 o'clock that MM.
Leontieff and Mourrichon pioceeded In a
landau to the Bois des Marechaux, whither
Prince Henry drove with his medical at
tendants, while the Count of Turin went
to the trysting place in compauy with his
seconds. On arrival It was at once per
ceived to their great relief that they were
secure from prjlng eyes.
All Intrusion had been successfully
eluded. Both princes were attired in the
garb which appears to be de rigucur on
such occasions. They wore frock coats
and tall hats. There was no picnic air
about them. On the contrary, they looked
stern and serious, and as if they meant
business. The encouuter, after all that
had occurred, was bound to be no mere

ravages made around the principal towns
near Havana by the insurgent, Col Raoul
Araugo, his continual raids upon the iowns
and the many challenges sent by him to
Gen. "Weyler and all the other commaude;s

to a .combined attack upon him by tho
Spanish forces of Gen. Morote and Co!.

repelled three attacks of the Spaniards.
After the first attack Gen. Morote and

The second attack assumed the Import
ance of a formal battle, lasting twenty
four hours. After it "was seen that all

PLAN TO AID THE STRIKE.
Dully Tax to He Levied Upon AIL
Wheeling, W. Va., Aug. 15.-Labor
leaders of this district, assisted by the
coal strike agitators In all quarters or
the State, have hit upon a plan which
they feel will result In tlie continuation
of the (strike tc an indefinite time. An
erforr will bo made to levy a dally tax
upon all union labor In the State, and
very likely In the country, as it Is al
leged by many that the scheme wus
recommended by the officials who at
tended the conference at Monongah on
Friday. Wheeling labor unions are now
contributing to the strike fund, but the
lenders say under the nw system each
man will contribute a sum corresponding to
his wages. With all the union labor of
West Virginia thus assisting them, tho
strikers could remain Idle forever If nec
essary. The plan was spoken of by Bebs on his
last visit to West Virginia, and it is more
than likely that it will carry. New or
ganizers are on their way to the Kanawha
fields, where the striking men have
adopted marching tactics with a very
considerable degree of success.

Little at Hyattsville.
Cries of "Murder! Help! Help!" startled
the citizens living in the extreme eastern

hit way to his home In Muncle.
Mr. Heath had been on the ears all day
and was consequently tired and hungry. Ho
learned that the train was to stop at Union
City for a short while, and he embraced the
opportunity to take a short walk. Upon bis
return, he found that he had a few min
utes more, and accordingly ordered a light
lunch. The dishes wese tempting, and Mr. .
Heath proceeded to do Justice to the fare.
He lieard the bell ring for the starting
of the train, but lingered a few moments
to finish his repast. When he reached the
platform the train had started and was
moving up the track. He ran rapidly
alter the train and succeeded in catching
hold or the stair rail. As he grasped the
rail the car gave a sudden lurch forward
and he was thrown violently to the ground.
Mr. Heath fell but a few Inches from the
track and it is considered miraculous than
he was not thrown under the wheels.

Mr. Heath's tody, aud his clothing became
entangled in the brasswork or the step.
He was rolled over and over by the
rapidly moving train, his head and body
coming in contact with the ground and
A conductor who had seen the accident
had in the meantime pulled the bellropc
and given the signal to stop the train.
It was some time berore the engine could
be brought to a standstill, and the ex
cited passengers and trainmen got out,
expecting to find Mr. Heath dead.
He v.'a, verv badly bruised and cut, but
beyond thee injuries appeared none the
worse Tor his cIomj call. It seems in
credible that he Could not have been mora
severely hurt, and the physicians still fear
th'it internal Injuries may have been in
curred. Mr. Heath was put in a carriage and
taken tothe Bynum House, a local hostlery,
and now remains there In charge of physi
cians. The train proceeded on its way after.
