Anna Gould Expects
Heir in Few Months,
Paris, April 4. A bombshell
that will shatter nil the finnnrinl
hopes of Count Boni Castellano is
certain in the news that the Prin
cess tie Sagan expects the arrival
of a new heir to the De Satrnn title
and the Gould millions some time
in June or July.
The arrival of a I)e Sagan heir
will give the Princess Anna the
j whip hand over Count Boni and
force him to desist from the cam
paign of unpleasant irritation he
o persistently has carried on since
his divorced wife's marriage to De
Sagan. Count Boni really has a
true affection for his children as
deep as ie his hatred for Dc Sagan.
By the terms of her father's will,
Princess Anna was permitted to
leave her fortune to any child or
children she might have. 1 hi?
places her in the position of being
able to hold Count Boni's child
rena' future inheritance and wel
fare over his head to whip him in
to a more reasonable and less war
like frame of mind, for should the
persistent efforts of Count Boni
estrange the children from theirJ
mother and embitter them against
De Sagan, it is in Princess Anna's
power to cut off the De Castellane
children for the benefit of the De
Sagan heir. .
Count Boni seems to have made
it his special vocation in life to
make things disagreeable for the
occupants of tho pink palace on
the Avenue Malakoff. Anything,
however slight, is taken advantage
of to cause annoyance and pain to
his successor and his former wife.
Only the other day, when the
children were on one of their legal
ly required visits to their father,
Count Boni sacrificed his namesake
son's wealth of curly hair, which
was the mother's pride notcutting,
but clipping the hair so closely
that little Boni is no longer distin
guished but looks as ordinary as
other . children. Princess Anna
wept when etic saw him, but now
the tears will be shed by the other
side and that knowledge is causing
Prince de Sagan to wear a broad
Princess Anna is in the best of
health, and is to be seen frequent

Tulsa, (Okla April 5. Gover
nor Charles N. Haskell, when call
ed before the Federal Grand Jury
to-day to answer to indictments
charging him with fraud in con
nection with Muskogee town lot
cases, made a hard fight against
tho case coming to trial.
Judge Marshall of Utah, who is
presiding, heard extended argu
ments by both sides in the matter
of Haskell's demurrer, and likely
will render a decision to-morrow.
Governor Haskell's attorneys be
gan their fight by asking that the
ijiulutments be quashed, charging
Special Attorney-General Bush
with misconduct in conducting the
grand jury injury which resulted
in the indictments.
It also was charged that the
grand jury had been illegally
drawn, that a stenographer had
been present during the inquiry
and that incompetent testimony
had been the basis of the indict
ments. These allegations were vigorous
'y denied by the Government coun
sel. A; great crowd attended the
opening of the trial. People came
from all parts of the State to see
the unusual spectacle of a gover
nor on trial for alleged fraud.
As soon as the case was called
attorneys for the defense filed a
motion to have the shorthand noteB
of the Muskogee grand jury intro
duced in court, and this motion
was taken up for argument before
the motion toqua?h was consider
ed. The attorneys for the defense
told the court that the argument

New York, April 1. Issue Gug
genheim, the recognized head of the
great firm of M. Guggenheim's) Sons
and eldest of the seven brothers,
has returned from Europe convinced
that the United States is about to
enter upon an era of prosperity
greater than any in its history. Mr.
Guggenheim made a general tour of
Europe during his sojourn abroad,
and relates some interesting impres
sions of his travels.
"The United States is on the very
threshold of the most prosperous era
in its history,' said Mr. Guggen
heim to an interviewer. "Within
the next six months, barring any
untoward circumstances, the depres
sion which has hung over this coun
try since the panic of 1!)07 will have
"I have just returned from a six
week's automobile trip in Europe,
filled with the ozone of Paris and
imbued with a more optimistic
spirit than I ever hail lxfore. I
found the people of Europe to be
even more confident of there appear
ing prosperity of the United States
than are our own people.
"All Europe is looking toward the
United States to lead the way to a
prosperity era that will extend to
every corner of the globe. The con
fidence of others in America has ap
parently been shaken not one whit
by the recent depression in this
country. On the contrary, they are
waiting only for the reaction which
they are certain will carry every
thing with it.
''Europe, with the exception of
France, has always been fairly
friundly to American securities.
They, too, however, are' beginning
to l(Hk with kindness tin American
stocks and bonds.
"Aside from coming homo fairly
surcharged with optimism, I think
the strongest impression my visit
made on nie is tlic recollection of
some of the most striking contrasts
that are presented lxtwcen the cus
toms, traditions manners, men,
women and business methods of this
country and the countries of the old
"No matter from what angle you
view Europe, you are mast impress
ed with the difference there is be
tween it and the United States. Her
business men arc as unlike the busi
ness men of the United States as
black is unlike white. . ,
"They are conseVvativc to the
point of recklessness, as wc here are
active and daring in our operations.
The average business man of Europe
marvels at the business man of
America. He does not approve of
our methods, yet he has unbound
ed confidence? in our ability to ex
tricate ourselves from any situation
in which we may find ourselves.
"The European business man
could no more succeed in this coun
try than he could Uy without wings
or an aeroplane. And on the other
hand, it is not at all certain that the
American business, man could com
pletely succeed alxjard. With his
revolutionary methods he certainly
would not be welcome.
"But the European is perfectly
ready to follow the lend of the men
of this country. Where he dares to
rush in they dare to follow.
"It is this very confidence of
Europe in America, however, that
has materially aided us, in rising
above the depression in which we
have Ix'cn for the last two years. The
material support American securities
have received ami will receive in the
future abroad has been the support

LONDON, April 5. Will the de

question raised by Major F. B. Bad

years' time one may reasonably ex-
jx'ct to be able to say that Hying is

people will have made a trip and
many will own machines and make
almost daily runs," said Major Bad

become the easiest thing in the
world. Even supposing it were not
practicable to convey largo cargoes
of 'goods, it would undoubtedly be
possible to carry , parcels of 1U) lbs.

Fropi kitchen maid to oM-ratic star
this remarkable achievement of
Mine. Olive Frenistad, the world
rcngwned prima donna, has ltecn
brought to light by the disclosures
of Mrs. Charles H. Fowler of Spring
licit), who claims that she introduced
Mne. Frenistad to fame. Mrs.
Fowler dtxs not like the attacks of
herVne-tiiiic maid on ojx-ra singers

The early chapters of Olive Freni
stad 's life are clothed in mystery
and'tbc assertions of Mrs. Fowler
arc (Jit- more remarkable on account
of te ixisition that Mine. Frenistad
now.holds in the musical world. It
is In low u that she was Imrn in
Sweden and made her a pix a ranee
as a pianist at the age of six. From
across the water reports have come
that she continued in her native
land as a "child prodigy" until she
was twelve years of age, when her
parents, who were fairly well to do,
determined to cast their fortunes in
Ani'-rica, the reputed land of prom
ise. After lauding in the country the
F remstads journeyed to Minneapolis
and the next six year of little
Olive's life have never been told to
any nie, even her most intimate
friends. Whatever fortune attended
the F reinstalls after their arrival in
this country is unknown, but it is
just at this time that Mrs. Fowler
claims to have met the Fremstads
and to have taken Olive into her
employ as a maid.
Mrs. Fowler, who is musically in
clined herself, was startled one
morning to hear her new maid gay
ly singing while busily engaged
About her duties in the kitchen and
stopping to listen she claims that
she was astonished nt the wonderful
voice of the young girl, who imme
diately became a great favorite in
Soon afterwards at a social gather
ing held at the Fowler house the
maid was introduced to the guests
and sang for their amusement. For
her age she was remarkably well
versed in operatic scores and fre
quently sang in ducts with Mrs.
Developing a decided affection for
her housemaid, and supposing she
was very well educated, Mrs. Fow
ler claims she made Olive a mem
ber of her family and took -her into
the Junior League in their church
and brought her out.
When Olive Frenistad was eigh
teen years old she visited New York,
where she sang Ix-fore Damrosch
and Seidl. She went to Europe in
ISO: to study for opera. Since then
her success has been wonderful, un
til to-day she is recognized as the
jxtsscssor of one of the finest voices
in the world.
