A Nctv Insane Ward 'Building in Course of Erection at the Watcrtotan ' Hospital.
Renjamin Karle died" suddenly last
evening- at about 9:30 o'clock at the
Industrial home on Sixth street. He
was about 75 years old and death was
due to old age. Mr. Karle returned
to the home early in the evening a.fter
a short visit .with friends. He went
immediately to his room, but left it
shortly to go to the toilet. His long
absence from his room alarmed the
..matron-of the hall, and she began to
investigate the cause. Upon opening
the door of the toilet she was horror-
stricken to find Mr. Earle stretched
out m death on the floor. The police
were, immediately notified, and they
summoned Cornier Lambach. who,
after an examination, said that it
wou4d not be necessary to hold an in
quest; that death was due to old age
Mr. Karle was one of Davenport's old-
est and best known citizens. He was
at one time connected with the late
Mr. Gould in the furniture business
on Second street. The. business pros
pered, and wheji Mr. Earle retired he
was considered to be pretty well fixed
w:th this world's goo;Is.

Thursday afternoon, while crossing
the street on Harrison and Fifth
streets, George Linn, a colored man.
had a very narrow escape from a ser
ious accident. .He was picking his
way amongst tne maze ot vehicles
that always are moving on Harrison
street during the crush of the after
noon traffic, and did not notice the
approach of a car. The motorman
saw the man just in . time and shut
off his power. The car struck him,
however, and when the car came to
a full stop it was found that the man
was lying with both of his arms
across the rail. Had the car proceed
ed four more inches he would have
had both of his arms cut off.

Mrs. Annie Kroeger, the aunt of the
girl, was the one who swore out the
information. She stated that the girl
had been living with her since the
other matter came up and that for
the last few days she had been in a
bad condition." She stated that the
girl thought someone was trying to
kill her and that she had got up in
the night and was going to leave the
house. The commissioners made a
thorough examination and decided to
send her to Mt. Pleasant. Miss Muller
was the woman who made sensational
charges against the Ie Claire physi

tirely disproven at the trial.

THE RUSSIAN CROWN
REMOTE CHANCE OF THE SUCCES
SION OF A FEMALE HEIR.
The Ciari Four Girls Ineligible.
Stories of Grand Dnke Michael,
Help Presumptive of Mcholaa II.
Pretty Grand Dachesa Ulga.
The announcement recently made
that the czarina of Russia has retired
from society and that the czar repairs
daily to the mosque to pray for a male
heir renews public interest in the suc
cession of the Russian crown. Al-
'.5-. ."i. '
GBAXD UCHES3 OLGA.
(Eldcst daughter of the czar. .
though Nicholas II. has four children,
he has no direct heir, the heir pre
sumptive being his brother. Grand Duke
Michael. Should the czar's prayers be
answered, however, the grand duke
would be relegated to a back seat.
Down to the present the czarina has
presented only daughters to the great
ruler of the north, and under the Rus
sian system they are not eligible to the
crovrn except under certain conditions,
whlcrt, owing to existing circum
stances, are of Interest. '
The so called Russian system, which
prevails not only in the Muscovite em
pire, but also in Holland, Greece, Ba
varia and YVurttemberg, provides that
all possible male heirs to the throne
sliould take precedence over the prin
cesses of the reigning house and that
none of the latter should come to the
throne until the complete extinction
of the male line.
Only In that event could the rights
of the daughters of Emperor Nicholas
be taken Into consideration, and then
the elder of the four namely, little
Grand Duchess Olga would naturally
come before all other princesses of the
imperial house of Romanoff, since the
succession by women is regulated by
the degree of proximity of relationship
to the emperor who has last reigned.
At the present time there Is a score or
more of grand dukes of Russia who
would all have to die without leaving
male issue before the little Grand
Duchess Olga could come to the throne.
She would, however, come before her
aunts. Xenia and Olga, daughters of
the late czar and sisters of Nicholas
II., and before the sisters of Alexan-
Grand , Duke Michael, brother of the
czar and heir presumptive to the
throne, is twenty-five years of age and
a bachelor. Comparatively little Is
known of his ability or character, ex
cept that be belongs to., or at least la.ta
sympathy with, the" views held" by his
powerful uncle, the Grand Duke Vladi
mir. These have two principal objects
the aggrandisement of the Russian
empire at whatever cost to others and
the crushing out of liberalism.
Grand Duke Michael was his father's
favorite and the one person in the em
pire who had the audacity to check
that stern autocrat and to laugh in his
face. It is related that during the last
trip of Alexander III. to Copenhagen
he was lying one warm afternoon oi
deck on a low couch, endeavoring to
snatch a few moments' repose.
His siesta was, however, disturbed
by Michael, who persisted in leaping
over the couch, notwithstanding the
protests of the emperor. At last, thor
oughly angered and with a view of en
forcing obedience to his behests, Alex
ander exclaimed, "It is the czar who
commands you to stop this!" Instead,
however, of showing any signs of be
ing impressed thereby. Michael seemed
tickled by the comic aspect of the af
fair and simply threw himself on the
deck and rolled over and over, scream
ing with laughter, in which Alexander,
sleepy and angry as he was, ultimately
had to join.
Grand Duke Michael has not the lit
erary taste and love of books possessed
by the czar, who shares with his sister
Olga the reputation of .being the schol
ar of the family, but his physical
strength Is much greater. On the top
story of Gatchina (the prison palace of
Alexander III., as it has been called)
is a suit of rooms that has been fitted
up as a gymnasium by Mkharl and Is
the portion of the palace most fre
quently visited by the heir to the Rus
sian throne. He is a capital boxer, a
crack shot, an e.iert swordsman and
can perform with ease most of the
feats of professional strong men.
The czar, on the contrary, cares little
for athletic sports. He loves to doff
the robes of state and disport himself
in smoking jacket and slippers. He
enters enthusiastically into the games
of his children and'delights in romp
ing wpfth them about their nursery, a
feeling that is fully reciprocated by the
little ones, who regard their father as
their most interesting playmate.
Grand Duchess Olga, eldest daughter
of the czar, was born Nov. 15, 1S93.

The cheapest postal service in the
world is that of Japan, where for two

letters are conveyed all over the em

consider the mountainous country
and their poor facilities for travel,
railroads being very few. The prog

also very remarkable, especially when
you remember the fact that in spite
of all opposition it now occupies the
