Taris. Aug-. 16. The Count of Turin
and l'rinoe Henri of Orleans fought
a duel with swords at 5 o'clock yester
day morning In the I2ois de Marechaux
ut Vancrtuson. M. Leontieff acted aa
umpire. The fighting was most deter
mined, and lasted twenty-six minutes.
ThfTH were five engagements, of
which two were at close Quarters.
Prince Henri received two serious
wounds In the right shoulder and the
right side of the abdomen. The Count
of Turin was wounded in the right
hand. I'rlnce Inri was taken to the
residence of the Iuc de Chartres and
received medical attendance. The con
dition of I'rlnce 11-nrl of Orleans is as
Mtlsfactury as could be expected. The
dut'tors, after consultation, have ex
pressed the opinion that no Important
organ was touched, but absolute re.n
I necessary for recovery. Owing to
rumors at Naples and flsewhere the
public had not expected a duel to come
off. It was therefore quite private.

The ollli lul uccount. furnished by the
"conds, recites fully the dreumstaneos
lauding up to the encounter. The Count
of Turin, considering the letters of
I'rlnce Henri if Orleans to the Figaro
offensive to the Italian army, wrote 10
him on July ( demanding a retraction.
Tills b tter could not be answered until
Aug. 11. the day of the arrival cl
I'rlnce Henri In France. The prince
replied to the count's demand by tele
pram, maintaining th right of a travel-
r to record his exM-rk nce.. The official
uccount then descrllies the arranv
ments for Uih duel, gives the names ol

their first Interview they agreed that
the encounter was inevltiil.le. By com

the arrangement was due to formal de

At a later meeting Saturday the sec

the encounter. It fays that In the MrM
assault Prince Henri was hit in the
right breast, though the weapon did not
penetrate the thorax. On the strength
of the reiort of the doctors the seconds
decided that the combat must go on. The
second avmult was stopped because the
combatants came Into close quarters. In

was hit in the back of the right hand.

accord. While his wound was being

swords Prince Hrnrl vigorously pressed

treated to the limit of the ground, and
then resuming the offensive touched his
opponent. The third ard fourth assaults
ended In long engagements within guard.
The Temps pays that the wound in the
abdotnr-n rf Prince Henri is serious, but
not alarming. Had the Count of Turin's
steel gone half a centimetre deeper the
irtestines would have lieen perforated.
After his wound had received a prelim

or false statement or non-payment of
royalty the decision of he geld com
missioner shall be final."
SO.MK OTHKR RtflilLATlOS.
Cvcry Other Claim Kcserred to the ;ov-
eraiment and Don't Yon Forget It.
The regulations 'governing the dis
posal of placer mining claims along the
Yukon river and its tributaries are
amended so that entry can only be
granted for alternate claims known as
creek claims, bench claims, bar diggings
and dry diggings; and that the other
alternate claims be reserved for the
crown, to be disposed of by public
auction or In such manner as may be
decided by the minister of the Interior.
The penalty for trespassing upen
a claim reserved for the crown is the
immediate cancellation by the gold
commissicr.er cf any entry or entries
which the person trespassing may have
obtained, whether by original entry or
purchase, for a mining claim, and the
refusal by the gold commissioner of the
acceptance of any application wtfich
the person trespassing may at any time
make for claims.
In addition to such penalty the
mounted police, upon a requisition from
the gold commissioner to that effect,
may take the necessary steps to eject
the trespasser. The clause in the former
regulations providing that the discov
erer of a new mine is entitled to claim
and shall be granted a claim for "bar
diggings" 750 feet in length, has been
amended so that the grant ma apply
to the creek and river claims Instead of
to "bar diggings."

Yellowstone Lake, Wyo., Aug. 16.
Two masked highwaymen hald up and
robbed a number of Yellowstone Na
tional park transportation coaches in
the park Saturday morning, relieving
the tourists of about $300. The coaches
were robbed while en route from Can
yon hotel to Norris Geyser basin, and
had covered but about three miles of
their journey. At the point where the
hold-up took place was the crest it a
high hill where the freight road branches
off from the government road at a sud
den turn. Each coach was halted and
robbed as It drove up.
Colonel Young has an excellent de
scription of the men, and it will be al
most impossible for the highwaymen
to leave the park, as soldiers are guard
ing every possible outlet. None of the
passengers in the coaches was hurt.
