Bekun, Feb. '-'7. The kaiser lias been
called n good many things since he as
cended the throne, and especially lately;
nor have the epithets always been of a
complimentary character. ' But one thing
lie lias never been called and that is cow
ard. He showed yesterday nfternoon that
his "jjrit" was good by riding from the
castle, attended by one aide and preceded
by two mounted jMilicemen, through the
crowded streets from which but a short
time before the cries of enraged socialists
had been heard as the police attacked and
drove back the mob.
The Populace Cheer Him.
He rode slowly and was loudly and en
thusiastically cheered by the masses. He
rode aloiiK the I liter den Linden to the
Thiergarten and was everywhere tho re
cipient of a most hearty welcome from the
excited populace. As he returned to
the schloss from his ride about 4 o'clock
the people generally cheered him, and he
replied by a smile of recognition. He
was pale, as he is naturally always pale,
except in the flush of excessive exercise or
induljrence, and those who have studied
his appearance say that the pallor of his
countenance in the face of the exciting
events of Thursday and yesterday proves
Will Lead Ills Soldiers.
It is said that when he was approached
on the subject of ordering out the gar
rison, he replied: 'When the soldiers go
I will lead them." This he uttered in a
tone of decision which put a stop to fur
ther inquiry, and carried the conviction to
the military that the army would be used
only as a last resort, and that the kaiser
would send his troops to no danger he was
Hot willing to face himself. No one doubts
the personal courage of the kaiser, any
more than that of his late father and his
mother. The general opinion is that he
would show himself, on occasion, brave
even to rashness, and would not hesitate
to play, as he once said. King Ilk-hard to
the people's Wat Tyler.
Has Faith in His Name,
nis riiling out ulniot unattended is
mentioned as showing both his courage
and his faitli in the attachment of the
people to his house. Nothwithstanding
the socialist propaganda there is a deep
underlying sentiment among the masses
of loyalty to the HohenzoKerns. This is
especially strong in Brandenburg, among
the descendants of the ancient, residents,
who are still the substantial element of
Herlin, of Koiiigslieg and Frankfort-on-the-Oder
society. The news of the demon
stration against the palace called out yes
terday a multitude of the substantial citi
eens, and these gave hearty evidence by
chwrs of their fidelity to the kaiser and
their appreciation of his courage in going

ing f r "Bread." Ttiey were met ner nr
castle gates by the police and dispersed
after a sharp light. They rallied several
times, but tiie police were masters of the
situariou every time. Turbulence was
almost entirely quelled by afternoon. The
polio; did not interfere with people unless
they seemed bent on mischief, or were
heard expressing sympathy with the out
break. In such cases the offenders were
eithe-arrested or ordered instantly home.
The Kaiser Will Call 'Km Down.
The total number of arrests made dur
ing the two days is 200, und sixty persons
are k lown to have been wounded. Many
of tie slighUy wounded are supposed to
have made their escape and to be in hid
ing with their friends. The kaiser is said
to he angry, not so much with the mob as
with the authorities of Berlin for having
been found unprepared. It is expected
that he will call them, from burgomaster
down, to a severe account.
ICepudiated by the Socialists.
The newspaper Yorwnerts says that in be
half of the Social Democrats it disclaims any
eymp ithy or collusion with the rioters.and
denies that Social Democrats had anything
to do with the outbreak, which it says was
incited and carried on by the lowest dregs
of so'iety. The Vossiche Zeituug says
that the roughs of any city tire ready to
romn it destruction and outrage. The Bi-r

Skeleton of a Murdered Man Found in a
IH"i us, Ky., Feb. 27. Thursday a party
of hunters succeeded in treeing a coon
and were unable to dislodge him. Then
they cliopped down the tree and to their
amazement found that it was hollow, and
that in the hollow was lodged a skeleton.
The t oon was forgotten and every one
erowd'-d around to see the skeleton. The
clothing was carefully examined, and in
the pockets were found papers which
prove: the remains to be those of Henry
Ilayden, who disappeared seven years ago.
Quarreled with His Urother-ln-I.aw.
Larj.e shot were found in the clothing of
the skeleton, proving death to have re
sulted from gun-shot wounds. It seems
that Henry Hayden lived near his brother-
1 m-law, Robert Price. They failed to get
along together and had frequent quarrels.
. One d ty Hayden disappeared, and some
I were not slow to accuse Price of knowing
. something about it. Shortly afterward
Price took his family and the family of

MISE.RY AND PERHAPS MURDER.
Children Nearly Starved, Mother Missing,
Father Suspected of Murder.
Asm and. Wis., Feb. 1:7. A family of
little children were found in a squalid
hut n -arly frozen and starved to death
yesterc.ay morning. One of them was a
nursing baby. They had burned their feet
in trying to keep them warm. The father
had be' -n on a spree, and the mot her had
disappeared mysteriously over a week mru

Crowh, the father, has been arrested on

"Going to tiet a New Mama."
It is alleged that he made threats to put
his wife out of the way, and his little
children sav that he was "going to get a
new mnma." A search is being made for

His Majesty, However, Was Too Majestic
to Hear Them.
The report of the kaiser's ride spread
through the city and had more influence
than the police in allaying excite
ment and conciliating the populace.
The sidewalks of the Unter den
Linden were thronged with a
compact crowd to witness his return.
The cheers were without a groan or hiss
to mar them until a point was reached
where about 150 socialists were gathered
In a mob. As the kaiser approached,
with his aide riding a short distance be
hind, the mob of socialists jeered and
groaned. The kaiser remained niijestic
and erect. Never had he presented an ap
pearance more like that of his soldier
grandfather. He seemed not to hear a
Jeer or a groan or to give the slightest at
tention as the police, with drawn swords,
rushed to the spot and threw themselves
upon the socialists.
The Unexpected Happened.
The latter seemed unprepared for an at
tack. They had apparently calculated
that there would be no interference with
them under the presence of the kaiser. A
few of them stood stubborn for a moment,
resenting by epithets the assaults of the
police. Then they tried to escape. The
police cut them down with their swords,
not killing any, but wounding several
slightly. Those who appeared to be lead
ers were seized and hurried away to pris
on on the charge of lese majestic The in
stant the disturbance was passed and the
cheers renewed the kaiser dropped the
tnask of impassiveness and again showed
by his manner tlut he recognized and es
teemed the plaudit? of the people.
All Quiet at the German Capital.
Last night there was quiet throughout
the city. Early in the evening groups
gathered here and there iu the suburbs,
but were quickly dispersed, a few arrests
also being made. In the thoroughfares of
the eastern district many of the shops
were closed for fear of further trouble and
pillage. Nearly all the police force was on
duty, or on reserve at a moment's call,
only those who were injured or exhausted
in Thursday's struggle being excused.
Until almost midnight crowds wandered
about the streets visiting from curiosity
the various localities where the encounter
between police and mob hod been hottest.

The mob did not give up with its demon

Jacksonville, 111., Feb. 27. Yesterday
Fritz Keener, father of the senior member
of the firm of Keener & Pike, who failed
at Meredosia on Jan. 11, carrying with its
assignment want and destitution into
hundreds of homes along the Illinois bot
toms, came here from Denver and an
nouncing that he would relieve the most
urgent caes among the sufferers by the
failure of his son's firm, distributed $12,
000 in small amounts. While this sum is
scarcely a drop in the bucket compared to
the amount lost to the poor people by the
failure it will relieve many of the most
pressing cases of need. Tiie scenes attend
ing the distribution were in manv in
stances affecting in the extreme.
The Firm a Household Word.
The name of Keener lias been i. house
hold word in this section for half a cen
tury. Thomas and Fritz Keener began
business iu the MOs, when the Illinois river
was the great artery of trade for this part
of thestate. Their headquarters wereat Na
ples, a town in Scott county, though they
had branches in several other places up
and down the river, and did a great busi
ness. When the war broke out they had a
fine credit. Anticipating a rise iu grain
they bought heavily, and during the first
yenr of the late unpleasantness they were

Destruction stared them in the face,
when a brother-in-law, Jacob Knsminger,
then in business iu St. Louis, cametotheir
rescue and enabled them to carry their
grain. A subsequent rise iu price sent
them as far ahead as they had been be.
hind. To their credit they remembered
their benefactor, and when he failed a few
years later they opened a wnreliouse in
this place and kept him in business as
long as he lived. About twenty years ago
Thomas Keener died and John L. Pike
was taken into the firm, which iecan:e

business in the old way and made consid

roads decidedly curtailed their trade.
CUT TOO BIG A SHINE.
I'oor luvestmentsand Swell Doing Hesull
in a Crash.
Fritz Keener went to Denver some years
ago, withdrawing from the firm, and if
said to be very wealthy. His son and
Pike continued the business. Until very
lately there was no bank iu all the region
along the Illinois river nearer than Beards
town anil the firm of Keener & Pike, and
formerly T. !t F. Keener were the depos
itaries of the poor people all about there.
Kverpbody knew old Fritz was good, ai;d
ha was generally supposed to be interest! d
in the firm, and if he wasn't he backed
his son right along, so it was the same
thing. This fact gave fhe firm good credit
and was the cause of it ruining so many
Wanted to be a Commodor e.
Young Keener married a worthy young
lady, Mijs Lillian Shaw, of Beardstown,
and to make himself conspicuous he
bought a $10,000 yacht, bad it fitted in
the most luxurious style and roamed up
and down the river whenever the water
would permit, though his craft drew so
much water that he could only get near to
shore when the stream was high. But one
small craft didn't furnish glory enough.
He wanted to be called commodore, and
commodore he would be called. So in St.
Louis he bought an old steamer called the
Calhoun and in Cincinnati another, which
he named the John L. Pike, and under
took to establish a packet line between
1'eoria aim i. Louis.
Lost Money and Collapsed.
The venture was a failure principally be
cause young Keener insisted on running
it, and this with other losing transactions
brought about the collapse, which occurred
Jan. 11. Hundreds of poor victims went
down with the crash. One poor widow
had loaned the firm the proceeds
of her husband's life insurance.

Several servant girls had left with the

wages for years. A number of poor farm
ers, several of them renters, had sold the
linn wheat and left t he proceeds to be
drawn at their convenience. Kven several
charitable societies were multced.
Hoped for Help from Frits.
People wondered if old Fritz wouldn't
come to the rescue as be had in times
past, but he failed to show up until hope
deferred made the heart sick. So yester
day, though it came a trifle tardy, his ad
vent, was hailed with acclamations and his
distribution received with blessings.
When interviewed on the subject Old
r ritz, as he is called, said the obligation
on his part was even hardly a moral one,
as he had legally withdrawn from the firm
years ago, but he had a pride in preserving
the honor of the family name. He select
