[Written for Tan BoNDYA I.Dnzanur.1 HE INTERESTING ROW RE ported by cable to be going on be. tween the duke of Manchester and Miss Bessie Bellwood has aroused much in terest among the duke's former cronies in this oity who, knew him as Viscount Mandeville. Not a few New Yorkers well known about town have participated in the nocturnal revels of both Mandeville and Manchester in London, and they had been looking forward until the news of the row came, to the oonsummation of an.arrange meat in contemplation for several years by whlih Beasle Bellwood was to be brought this country as a music hall singer, with to tacit understandihg that his grace of Man. chester would in all probhbtlity seize the opportunity of revisiting the city where, some eight or nine years ago, he used so thoroughly to enjoy himself with Ed ward S. Stokes, Tom Gould, James Gordon Bennett, Pat Reilly, Ed Mallahan and other choice spirits. Of course, unless Manches ter and Bellwood are reconciled, the visit of this interesting British peer will not come about, whatever should be the result of the managerial negotiations with Miss Bell wood. The discussion of probabilities in the case drew out an evening or two ago, at a table in the Hoffman house art gallery, a flood of piuant reminiscences of Mande ville's adventures in the western metropo lis. Not the least noteworthy of which was the following narrated by that accomplished impressario of the variety stage, ex-cam paign editor and all around good fellow, Pat Reilly. "If you believe in the migration of souls, and can imagine the spiritof a Malay pirate animating in this year of grace, '91, the personality of a British peer, you will get a fair idea of that marvelous good fellow who is now duke of Manchester and whose ex ploits, if I speak only of what I have seen myself, might well fill many chapters of a volume on the marvelous. He prefers the company of a tough to that of a straight laced arlstocrar, and when I ran across him accidentally in London a couple of summers ago, he gave me such a DUKE OF MANCIIFSTER. 'time' that I aotnally haven't recovered from it yet. It's about that 'time' that I'll tell you, if you'll'let me. Nobody who has never seen the man can form an idea of the grotesque, habitual sneer which stunts the good nature that would otherwise struggle through his Mephistophelan features. When I said he seemed to be a reincarnated Malay pirate, I had in my mind his long narrow face and his drooping, scraggy black moustache. At heart he is as clever as any man in patent leathers. I believe I could draw a better picture of him than I ever saw. He is only about five feet seven high, and has filled out in figure a little since he became duke, now weighing prob ably 1.55 pounds. "If he hadn't become a peer a couple of years ago, I have very little doubt but what he might have acquired an international reputation as a burlesque manager, for Bes sie Bellwood was on the point of coming over to this country, and he never nould have let her get that far away from him. She earned her $300 a week, singing in London and at Oxford and Cambridge, and while he didn't travel with her then, he lived with her near London, at a beautiful tottage in Hampton on the Thames. She used to drive down to the station every morning with a spirited horse, and the duke by her side. If they had come here at that time, or if they were to come this fall, they would turn New York upside down the first night after they landed, and as like as not, land in the jug before morning' 'I've a great mind to go with you,' were Bellwood's last words to Marie Loftuas when she sailed last year, and I know she'll never be satis fied until she, too, has her hack at New York. She is now, and has been for some years, in my opinion, the handsomest woman on the London stage, her Celtic blue eyes and dark hair giving her the pe culiar half-Spanish beauty which is so much admired in Irish girls. She is popu lar, too. When she licks a cab man, as she often does-when cabby is extortionate, she marches into court as calm as a May morn ing, with her little 'How much is it, judge?' pays up her £5 like a man and marches out again. I saw her under just such circum stances once, when in addition to her ad venture with the cabman, she had a row with his lordship also, and he had in the language of the east side, put two beau tiful lamps over her eyes. On another occasion when she was fined £5 for a similar offence, she actually served her five days in jail and gave the 'quid' to a charity. When Tom Gould heard that Manchester might turn up here before long, he expressed considerable pleasure at the prospect and said he'd like to see his grace just about seventy-five pounds worth. I've always thought it was very much to Miss Bellwood's credit that she didn't thrash Manchester herself some times, instead of allowing him to put lamps over her eyes. She's a great, big, buxom woman, high colored and muscular, with legs like posts and the arms of a coal heaver. I promised to tell you about that excursion. Bat I only wish that I-or even one of my rival burlesque impressarios on West Twenty-third street or East Four teenth street, could succeed in our long cherished scheme to get ]3ellwood over here as a music hall singer, under the tact man agement of his grace of Manchester. "But I haven't told you about that wild day on the Thames yet. It was as fine a June day as ever you saw. I was lucky enough to have an invitation from his race to go on his steam launch with Miss Bellwood and himself mnd a jolly party of an excursion from London to Windsor and back. It was just the time of year when the "merry Thames" is at its pest. The yacht was a beauty, about sixty feet long, and with ample accommodations for twenty passengers. The dining room and cabin were particularly commodious and specially contrived, it would seem, for the ease of people who had dined well and late. Bessie Bellwood was, of course. the queen of the party, and I never saw her looking better than she did that Sunday morning, with the sun shining and the lark singing R r&O0, ih* on. hetls o lQoagn uIoea ato the a : a h t gaJ W raceta right °ýand a em tea of ret horse. e wasn dreed in all white l ennand wore russet shoes. By h side a ie. in a cool Worth d ie-worth a oo ffty pound note I should'may ookin a otio as you please and attired through out in the height of fashion. As they drove down a orony of his exclaimed. 'Ah, there's his grace, wouldn't I like to see him this time to-night thoughl' Ten oases of Pommery Jules Mumm, moselles. olarets and burgundies were put aboard. The cuisine of the Manchester yaoht,was already famous and the chef had not negleoted his larders. The enginee r, THE OIBLS HA.V FUIN. his two assistants and the pilot were promptly on hand and at nine o'clock we were off. After the first two bottles his grace took the wheel, Bessie observing 'Oh, a he's all right, and will do for a couple of 3 hours yet. Now, a couple of bottles with his grace means more than it sounds, be cause of late years he has been drinking magnums and can easily get away with three or four of them at sixty shillings a mag. He was in a great humor that morn ing, all smiles and nods, and making every body feel at home, while Bessie played the fine lady to perfection. At every one of the dozen locks of the way we stopped and not content with what he had aboard, made requisitions to the river houses. After we had gotten about ten miles up the Thames, 'the summer of the vine in all our veins,' we concluded not to go to Windsor, as the champagne was all gone and we had to make a landing to buy some more. Indeed, his grace having de clared his intention of stopping at every resort on the way back, it was unanimously agreed that it was quite time to turn our faces homeward. Our progress back was simply a grand hurrah all the way down. Every look we got to his grace would amuse himself by picking up the 'dead soldiers' and throwing them at the bystanders on the look walls. We hadn't got more than a couple of miles homeward bound before the local constables attempted to read the riot act to us, for which one of them was knooked into the look by an empty bottle for his pains. Telegrams were sent ahead of us ordering all officers of her majesty to stop the launch, and some of them, as it turned out afterwards, actually accused us of having abducted a lady from Raynor's. We had stopped there a moment and Mr. and Mrs. Raynor had come aboard. The former speedily acquiring that condition of ex uberance which actually led him to forget whether he had a wife or not. There were a lot of geraniums and potted plants in the cabin, some of them four or five feet high, and the deck was speedily transformed into a tropical garden by moving them up. In their midst we sat and cracked magnums. Raynor started to go ashore pretty soon, but madame remained aboard, and laugh ingly wondered. as the yacht steamed fu riously away, "Oh, what will my poor hus band say?" As it turned out the poor man went nearly mad and fired avolley of tele erams after us all the way down to London. This. I believe, was Mrs. Raynor's second abduction by this same party. The Raynor menials and the potboys in attendence at neighboring public houses organized a posse and pursued us in row boats but we soon left them behind. When we got to the next look we found to our dismay that the telegrams caused it to be shut against us, so the posse had no diffli oulty in catching us there. They were afraid to come aboard and attempt to rescue so they followed as on through the lock, eagerly seizing and emptying the bottles of wine with which they were vigorously pelted from our decks. Now the wine steward and the chef had been stealthily assisting to empty the cham pagne bottles that were so liberally strewn around, and our first intimation of it was the discovery of the two engaged in a regu lar mill down in the cabin, quarreling over a half empty magnum. A well known sporting man in the party said, 'Ah, here's me GRACe cOT WTLL. a go'; and his grace immediately recover ing from the somnolent influences of his fourth bottle, cried, 'Jolly Good! Make for shore and we'll have an old fashioned mill!' The deck lines were taken ashore to as pret. tv a patch of turf as you ever saw and a regular prize ring was speedily formed, the ladies meanwhile shutting themselves up in the dining room. The steward got first blood and matters were proceedine as blood ily as any of us could desire, when just as time was called for the second round some body shrieked out that the yacht was aground. This alarmed us, as we didn't want to be caught, and the two contestants, now so exhausted as to be unable to walk, were picked up bodily and thrown aboard. His grace had them carried down into the cabin, where a gallon of salt and ice from a couple of magnum coolers was gently ap plied to the head of each. Once more we started down the river, succeeding in the next ten minutes in run ning down two row boats. Our noble skip nor was at this interesting juncture in the stern of his launch trying to load his six pound brass canon, which was used for tiring signals, to fire a salute over the ship wrecked crews of the row boat. By this time the ladies had come on deck quite worked up to the bottle throwing point themselves, and there was a regular funsilade of champagne at the poor wretches who were swimming round us, trying to crawl aboard. They had nerve enough, however, to dive for the champagne every time. This episode naturally attracted even a greater crowd and a score or two of boys and girls who had been haymaking in the adjoining fields, thronged to the water's edge, grab bing eagerly for the pennies and sixpenoe which the duke and Belwood fired at them with both hands. It was perhaps just as well that the police came aboard just below there. When they found out whose launch it was they were very polite, took iooe at * Copyriabt. DRS.
