Germany's .Kdserin Suffers from
Strain of taxi Winter's Anxieties.
_ victoria. Augusta of Germany Is sadlj
ed of rest and change, and it is for this rea
"that che * I be itn the Emperor during his
Ita in Sicily.' The fact of the matter is that she
has not' recovered from the strain and fatigue of
unßB #. jj er second son. Prince Eltel Frits, through
1- is "dan4 < «' rol|s illness in January last, and, while
since th«i she hns taken part in the state cere
monials where her presence has been absolutely
I. ills'— 'H~ she has abstained from all entertain
jneot> which could be avoided, and has not ac
companied the Emperor to any of his dinners at
the foreifin embassies.
It may be remembered that the prince was liv
ing at the so-called Cablnetshaus. at Potsdam,
when he was taken ill. There was no room for. her
there, and, as the entire court was at Berlin, she
left her other children in the capital and took up
her residence in the so-called Stadtschloss, at
Potsdam, spending, however, the entire day, and
often the greater part of the night, by her son's
bedside. Indeed, one night when his condition was
most critical she did not return to the Stadtschloss
until 6 o'clock in the morning, to enatch a few
hours' sJ.-ep. Another morning she arrived at her
eon's residence at 6 o'clock. She found, of course,
the outer door closed, but would not ring the door
bell for fear of disturbing him. The sentinel on
duty had no key, and so the imperial lady and her
maid walked up and down for an hour in the cold
and damp of the wintry dawn until the doors were
finally opened by the servants.
Th» Empress, even as a young girl, in the days when
•he was still known as "Dona" by her relatives,
was noted for her kindness of heart and for her
aacrtflce of self for others. Possession of the throne
of Germany has not chanced her in the least, save
la this, that by raising: her to a greater eminence
a.boy« her fellow creatures it has enabled her to
see more of human suffering end. has increased her
anxiety to relievo it. This is known throughout the
length and breadth of Germany, where her popu
larity is to-day greater than that of any princess
'who has occupied the Prussian throne- since the
cays of Queen Louise. Her children are devoted to
her, and so is her husband, who never loses an op
portunity of paying public tribute to the support
which she has been to him in all his difficulties and
troubles. In Germany nothing but enthusiastic
praise is heard of her, even among the Socialists.
l.'Tii Pauncefote's daughter Lilian, who spent so
: years of her girlhood In Washington, and
crt» married there at the English Embassy her
young kinsman, Robert Bromley, an attache of
her father's mission, has Just become Lady Bromley
through the succession of her husband to his
father's baronetcy and estates, which are situated
in th^ counties of Nottingham and of Rutland. Sir
Robert and Lady Bromley have been for the last
year or so living In the West Indies, where Sir
Robert, after a brief spell of service as assistant
private secretary to Joseph Chamberlain, at the
Colonial Department, had received the $5,000 a year
pest of administrator and governor of St. Kttts, or,
to give It Its full title. St. Christopher, the oldest
colony of the West Indies, which owes its appella
tion to Columbus, who, discovering the Island In
1433, was so delighted therewith that he gave it his
name of Christopher. It is healthful and pictu
resque, and the r.ame of the principal mountain,
namely. Mount Misery, must not be regarded as re
flecting in any way on the charm of the island.
g?r Robert Promley. liko the late Lord Paunce
fate. Is descended from the famous Nottingham
banker. Abel Smith. The latter had three sons, the
eldest of whom. George, was created a baronet. It
■was his son. the second beronet, who secured the
King's permission to change his name from Smith
to Bromley. He was the great-great-grandfather
of Sir Robert Bromley, who, I may add, has also a
strain of Stuart blood in his veins. Sir George
Smith, that is to say. the father of the flrst Sir
George Bromley, having married the natural grand
daughter of Princt Rupert, who rlayed Bo great a
role in the wf.rs between Kin? Charles I and Crom
v.ell, his father being Frederick, Kins of Bohemia,
and hi* mother Princess Elizabeth of Great Britain,
daughter of King James I.
Old Abel Srr-ith'f? second son. John, became a Lon
don merchant, and it was his son who change'! his
r.nme- of Smith for that of Paunccfote. and became
"estor of the lnte Lord Pauncefote. The
tnM son of th* original Abel Smith bore the name
of Abet, like his father, and it was nis son Robert
who was- tha baalßar »f Pi"- and who rendered such
mitcaa to that famous Premier and to the
■.inn l HlilCllt in a financial and political way during
'. . • wars with Franco that Pitt obtained for him,
not without difficulty, a peerage, whereupon he
took the title of Lord Carrington, dropping the
patronymic o f Smith and assuming in lieu thereof
that >.f Carrtnston. Th<- present Lord Carrlngton
is his prandson. and a younger brother of the earl,
namely. Sir William Carrlngton, Is chief of the
Pttece of Walr-s's household, and married to an
American woman, daughter of the late Francis
Warden, of New-York.
The new Marquis of Anglesey, far from being
badly off, as asserted In cable dispatches and let
ters from London, succeeds to an income of $SuO,OCQ,
on which there are but two charges, namely, one of
550.000 a year to be paid for life to the childless
widow at '.lip late marquis, and another of $00,000 a
year to the widow of the fourth marquis. She was
Miss Mary King, of Sand Hill, Ga. Of course the
country seats. Beaudescrt, in Staffordshire, and
Pl&s Newydd. in Anglesey, are stripped of all the art
treasures, furniture, etc., that were not entailed.
the latter having- been dispersed for all time by auc
tion. But, save for the annuities above mentioned
to the two widowed marchionesses of Anglesey, the
new marquis has . his big Income from the family
entaiied estates entirely unencumbered,- the cred
itors of the late peer having co longer any claim
■808. its revenues. Their claims became extin
guished by his death, and. although they will be
partly covered by insurance companies and by the
proceeds of the sales, yet they will still los« about
a million dollars through his demise.
From the interior of Africa, on the shores of
those great lakes which constitute the sources of
the Nile, comes the news of the birth of another
of those future peers of the British realm who
can boast of American blood in his veins. A year
ago the master of Falkland, eldest son and heir
of Viscount and Viscountess Falkland, married a
very pretty girl of the name of Miss Ella Catford,
and finding it financially Impossible to continue to
live in London and at Windsor as a married officer
of the Grenadier Guards, one of the most expen
sive regiments of the army, be volunteered for ser
vice in the East African Protectorate, and took
his bride out to Central Africa, where he is now
in command of Fort Nar.di. with the prospect of
winning distinction not only as a soldier, but also
as an administrator. It Is there that his wife
has Just given birth to a little boy, who In due
course of time will become fourteenth Viscount
Falkland and Lord Cary. and who la a great
grandson of Robert Reade, of New-York. For
Lady Falkland is a daughter of the latter, and
will be remembered by many of the older genera
tions as Miss Mary Reade, who made her debut
in New-York toward • the latter end of the 70's,
about the time of Miss Consuelo Yznaga's mar
riage to the late Duke of Manchester.
The Falklands" patronymic is Cary. and their
family is a very ancient one. On** of its members,
William Cary, was a brother-in-law of King Henry
VIII, having married Mary Boleyn, bister of Queen
Acne Boleyn. who lost her head on the scaffold.
Sir Edward Cary was Keeper of the Crown Jewels
to Queen Elizabeth, and his son. Sir Henry, who
died as Lord Falkland, was the first peer created
by King James I after his accession to the throne
of England. Curiously enough, he did nor confer
an English peerage, but a Scotch one, upon Sir
Henry Cary.. although the Carys are an old Devon
ablre family, and thus it happens that to-day Vis
count Falkland, whote estates are situated in the
South, of England, who does not own a single rood
of land in Scotland, «■# who has nothing Scotch
about him save his title, sits in the House of Lords
•* a representativti p**>r of Scotland.
It ia an error to imagine that Lord Falkland is
descended from or of the daughters of Oliver
Cromwfll, as I bay. seen ptated. On the contrary,
his ancestors were i on»" the most bitter foes of
the (reat Protector. The second Viscount Falkland
was one of the most ; mous cavaliers of Charles I,
served the litter as '*cretary of State, and fell
fighting the Cromwt. xn forces at Newbury. His
•on. the fourth viscount, was imprisoned in , the
Tower of London by Cromwell, for being- con
cerned In a royalist restoration conspiracy. The
ninth viscount, a captain of th© royal navy, and
-■who -was killtd. in a duel. la 1809. married a, Miss
Anthcn. of New- York, a member of the family to
which' Mrs.' Stuyvesant Fish belongs, and It ls'tbla
ninth lords grandson who 4b the present peer. .'
All the eldest ■ sons of Scotch peers bear the
courtesy title of "Master." prefixed not to the
family patronymic, ) but to their father's i title.
TV.us. whereas Lord Falkland second . son :Is
known as the Hon. Byron Cary. the eldest son.
the one. now in Central Africa, is known as the
"Master of Falkland," his wife, however, being
Mrs. Lucius Cary. And in the same way, when
young Lord Fairfax marries and has a son, the
latter will be the Master of Fairfax. *
Lord Fairfax, by-the-bye, still retains his Amer
ican citizenship, which his father held before him,
and on this account is debarred from taking part
in the elections held nt the palace of Holyrood at
the time of each general Parliamentary election
for the purpose of choosing the sixteen Scotch
I peers, to purpose of the peerage of .the northern
i to represent thr peerage of the northern
kingdom in the House of Lords at Westminster.
There are only about three dozen Scotch peers re
maining who are unprovided with English— that is
to say. United Kingdom— peerages. At the time of
the union of Scotland and England there were no
; fewer than 154 Scotch peers, but since 1712 none
I have been created, the Crown being debarred
[ therefrom by the terms of the act of union. The
Crown, however, is permitted to create a limited
; number of Irish peerages, one for every three that
! become extinct. Scotch peerages, . it may ba
added, descend In the female as well as In the
male line. . MARQUISE ; DE FONTENOY.

Dr. Funk Wishes to Have the Sub
ject Treated Scientifically.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: As the anti-psychic storm has now subsided,
though the sea here and there still runs high, will
not the press permit me a few suggestions as to
the methods of investigation which, in my Judg
ment, will prove helpful in separating the true
from the false phenomena and in determining the
laws that govern them, and as to how the press nnd
the public may render essential service in helping to
right conclusioas? My meaning will be more easily
understood through several concrete illustrations:
First Class of Phenomena.— A few weeks ago. in
Chicago, Dr. CaH A. Wlckland an intelligent and
respectable physician of that city, residing at No.
616 North Wells-st... gave me a number of personal
experiences, which have convinced him that obses
sion by evil dlscarnate intelligences is the cause of
a large per cent of insanity— over one-half, he
thinks. Through his wife, who ia a non-profes
sional "sensitive," or "medium, he has made hun
dreds of Investigations, ana has applied many in
genious tests to prove the identity of these so-called
foreign intelligences. He claims to have cured
many cases of insanity by working along this
theory— some who were pronounced hopelessly in
sane. We may laugh at this, but is there solid
ground for an a priori dogmatic conclusion that
hypnotism may not bo a fact between a spirit out of
the flesh and one in the flesh, as it ia a fact be
tween two persons in the flesh? A few years ago
we pearly all ridiculed hypnotism as wholly char
latanism or illusion. Obsession was common
enough in Christ's time. Many an insane one Christ
and His disciples cured by "casting out devils.
There are other practitiomrs throughout the world
who believe and practice as does Dr. Wickland.
Will not the press gather carefully facts bearing
on this class of cases and publish them, giving
names and addresses and verified details, especially
the facts that would seem to establish the identity
of the so-called obsessing spirit? Is it not worth
while? Let us remember, a single scientifically
demonstrated fact of the existence of even an evil
discarnate spirit will do more to prove the continu
ance of life after dean timn all the sermons on
immortality that have been preached in the last
ten years. That single demonstration would be the
death knell of materialism.
Second Class of Phenomena.— By an arrangement
with Dr. M. A. Veeder, of Lyons, N. V., a medical
scientiet of wide repute. I in Brooklyn drew the
figure of a flsh and then pointed to the zenith.
Sensitives whom Dr. Veeder had at his office told
him at that moment that I drew a flsh and pointed
to the zenith. No one but myself, four hundred
miles distant, could have known either fact by any
scientitlcally recognized method of communication.
Tliis seems to point to long- distance telepathy.
Similar facts are occurring in many places. v\ ill
not the press be hospitable to them and closely
verify and report them minutely? Nature- in this
way may be whispering to our dull senses of forces
and laws more subtle and vastly more important
than thoFe that gave us wireless telegraphy.
Third CU.FB of Phenomena— G. L. Seabury, No.
1,414 Atlantic-aye., Brooklyn, whose respectability
and truthfulness can be easily tested, has given
me the facts to the least detail of a test experiment
he made through Mrs. Pepper. She answered for
him an important personal question in a letter
which he kept in his pocket throughout the whole
sitting. The evidential value of such a test depends
upon the honesty of the sitter, his secrecy as to
his intention and his avoidance of giving any in
formation to the medium during the sitting. A
large per cent of sitters are "easy victims, giving
themselves away" in their much talk. I have cross
examined Mr. Seabury, and think thin case typical
of a large number of cases worth careful investi
gation. On pages No. 217-235 of "Widow's Mite."
many experiments of this class are given which I
made through Mrs. Pepper ("Mrs. A.") and through
Margaret Gaulo ("Miss B.") under test conditions
at private sittings. These cases indicate at least
nearby mind reading of a high order. But what
is the explanation of them if they are taken in con
nection with the case vouched for by Professor
Hyslop of a message sent lii English from Boston
through Mrs. Piper and received almost simultane
ously by another medium in England in Greek,
neither medium understanding Greek? If the press
and public will give a sufficient number of verified
facts of this class, the scientists quite likely will
in due time solve for us also this puzzling riddle.
Fourth Class of Pnenomena,— A short time since
I gave to the press the case of a man finding his
father who had left home In London twenty-nine
years before, and had never thereafter been heard of
by the family. Since then I have got all the facts,
examined all the letters between father, son and
executors, cross-examined the man, and have
found him well to do. «md deemed by friends and
neighbors to be of unimpeachable veracity. The
case from "very point that I havo approached it,
seems criticism proof. No recognized theory of
telepathy explains it. What is the explanation?
Coincidence? Yes. as says one. If we may sup
pose that an explosion of a type foundry would
somewhere in the universe and some time in eter
nity produce the Iliad.
Genuine cases of the above and other classes,
wherever occurring, should be searched for by the
press more than if they were lumps of gold, and
should be verified, if possible, to the minutest in
cident, and given not jocosely, but seriously, to the
world. My tlm*> is so occupied that I can give but
a few minutes now and then to this work— a few
minutes of my recreation hours. Why will not tha
press soberly take up this matter? Rlghtly
handled, there is sensation In it worthy of the most
royal purple Journalism. Believe me, there ia more
tnan fraud and coincidence in these experiences.
Gladstone was right when, in his membership let
ter to the Society for Psychical Research, he said
that this work of investigation "is the most im
portant work which is being done in the world— by
far the most Important."
No hypothesis of explanation is as yet given that
matches all around; no theory has as yet passed
beyond the speculative stago.
Pormit me an additional point or two:
In these Investigations, it is not wise to assume
that a "sensitive" you deem worth testing la dis
honest. If you do, the chances are you will get
nothing. Be wise as serpents, but harmless as
doves. Remember, Christ could do no wonders in
his own country because of "their unbelief." Learn
what that means, you who "know It all" and are ao
"cocksure." A prestidigitator js good at detecting
tricks, but may not be worth his salt in the in
vestigation of genuine psychic phenomena. Psychic
things are psychically discerned as musical things
are musically discerned. A Darwin, whose faculty
for music Is atrophied. Is no Judge as to whether it
is a Paderewski at the piano in the other room; the
judgment of a child musically developed is far
better. All thing? carry their own proof to a
faculty up to the level of ths faculties' develop
ment Also, predisposition is a sword that cuts
both ways; deception invites deception; like draws
like. These things are true, whether the psychic
phenomena which are being Investigated are from
the subjective mind of tne medium or from foreign
intelligences. "Words, words and nothing more."
is all this to nine out of ten of even cultured read
ers; but If they will study it out. they will find
these words the hardest kind of sense.
Do not be afraid that the universal order of
things will be upset if some new truth Is diseov
er^a _ na tural truth, not supernatural; there is noth
ing supernatural but God, and He most probably Is
infinitely natural. Never forget God has made the
universe fireproof, and has thought it altogether
safe to trust us with the match box to experiment
And will not the press permit me to suggest that
the instruction be reversed that see;ns in some
newspaper offices to be given to reporters: "Young
men. flrst be Interesting; second, be Interesting;
third, fourth and filth, be Interesting; and then, in
cidentally, if convenient, be truthful."
New-York. March 27. I. K. FUNK.
Position of the Man Who Would Give It
Tc the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: The position of those who are objecting to
the acceptance by the American Board of Commis
sioners for Foreign Missions of the money of Mr.
Rockefeller se«ms to be this, as well as I can make
out :
First— A man who has made money in a way that
doesn't meet popular approval is not to be allowed
to give It away for benevolent purposes, or
Second— He must not be allowed to give U to
hone6t men, to be applied by them to benevolent
purposes; hence
Third— lf he seeks to find a corporation which will
apply his money for benevolent purposes, he must
find one whose trustees are not honest men: or if
he proposes to form a corporation for that purpose
he must provide that Its trustees shall be dishon
est men.
I'nlesa the above propositions are to be main
tained why may not the scholars in the various
schools of the American Board receive the benefit
which would come to them from Mr. Rockefel
l«»r-« money?

Mr sic.
The Olirc Mcmi (Quartet.
In Mendelssohn Hall last night four young
women, at whose head sat Miss Olive Mead, gave
a concert of chamber music with the help of Mr.
Harold Randolph, director of the Peabody Conser
vatory of Music In Baltimore. Miss Mead and her
companions have been heard here in similar enter
tainments before, and It has been the duty— a
plensant one — of the recorder of and commentator
on musical affairs for this journal to say that they
needed not to ask odds of any but the finest
organization of men who play chamber music in
New-York. Mr. Randolph has also been united
with that organization— the Knelsel Quartet— ami
for thut reason, If for no other. It was agreeable
to note the association of last night. Miss Mead's
companions are Miss Elizabeth Houghton, Miss
Gladys Worth and Miss Lillian Littlehales.
They began their concert with a perform
ance of Dvorak's "American" Quarten. which
proved peculiarly delightful, because of its dem
onstration of the fact that the young women had
admirably understood its spirit and had the techni
cal as well &f intellectual capacity to body It forth.
Then they went further, and showed their general
musicianship in Brahms's pianoforte Trio in C
minor and Saint Saelns's quintet in A minor. In
both of which pieces they had the sympathetic co
operation of Mr. Randolph.
The concert given in aid of the East Side Music
Settlement School at Carnegie Hall last night, at
which Mme. Eames and Ysaye appeared, drew
forth a big, though not a packed, house, and af
forded much pleasure to the audience. Ysaye and
Mme. Eames, in Gounod's "Aye Maria." for which
the great violinist played an obbligato with fine
effect, were greeted with great, enthusiasm. Mme.
Eames sang twice besides, and received for her
work $2,200, which must have aided her quite as
much as the music school. This figure doubtless
included some time spent in rehearsal: but even
so. It represents her full price for concert work,
which is thus seen to be profitable. Walter Dam
rosch and the New-York Symphony Orchestra
furnished the orchestral numbers and accompani
Dr. Charles A. Olcott. of No. 489 Bedford-aye..

George Becker, manager of the Kneisel Quartet,
Who died on Wednesday, learned Just before his
death of the benefit concert held for him on
Wednesday evening at Mendelssohn Hall. Mr.
Eecker, who was sixty-five years old, had been ill
tor several days. Dr. Bradshaw, his physician.

years Mr. Becker was associated with Theodore
Thomas. He leaves a widow and a son. The

At the reception of the Uptown Press Club last
night at the Harlem Casino, Police Commissioner
McAdoo made a short speech.
"As long as I am Police Commissioner." said he,
"I will see that the residents of Harlem are pro
tected from all sorts of vice. I am doing every
thing in my power to give a cl«-an administration.
I am glad to see such clubs as this formed."
The Commissioner dwelt on the honesty of a re
porter and asked that all facts be presented to the
public as they are.
"If one reporter is a fakir, the public 'hinks that
all reporters are fakirs." said !■«". 'It In the same
In the Police- Department. If cne policeman has a
bad reputation. It Is the gener * belief that all
policemen are bad."

Grout at Municipal Art Society Din
ner Advocates Schools umLSuhxvntj*.
Tho Municipal Art Society had its annual d nnrr
last night In Its rooms In 34th-st. Controller Grout
was the principal guest. President Robert W.
De Forrest of the Art Commission. Francis K.
Pendleton. of the City Improvement Commission.
an<l President Frederick CrowntnshieM of th-- Fine
Arts Federation were present. Calvin Tom
kins, president of the society, was chairman of the
dinner. He spoke of the society's work In fight
ing the subway signs.
Controller Grout said he believed that .f the
society had not taken a stand against subway ad
vertising nothing would have been done. He 'lelleved
that when this Is finally settled the cpurts will hold
that a railway franchise does not include the right
to sell merchandise or the right of advertising.
This will lncludn not only the subway, but the sur
face and elevated lines as well, he thinks.
The Controller wanted to see the Improvements
advocated by the society go through, but wondered
where the city was to get the necessary money.
The city's funds for Improvements were limited la
10 per cent of its Income. The borrowing capacity
is limited by the charter. After docks and schools,
he thought transit expenditures the most urgent.
He would put these before parks and similar Im
Mr. de Forest, president of the Municipal Art
Commission, paid that all were interested in the
"city beautiful." but even more in "the city useful."
Although his commission only has the right to say
"Yes" or "No" on certain projects, he thought It a
valuable part of the city's machinery. The civic
pride that established Central Park was almost
wanting, he said. He did not like to see museums
maintained through private generosity. The city
should support them.
Mayor McClellan wrote that a great mistake had
been made in the development of the city In under
taking public Improvements for the moment rather
than for the ultimate future.
Mr. Pendleton suggested that In making g~eat
public improvements the city should condemn more
land than it needs, and after the improvements
wye made sell the surplus at largely enhanced
prices, thus defraying cost of improvements.
Mr Crowninshleld did not agree with Mr. Grout
that rapid transit should take precedence over
other improvements. He criticised the New- York
Public Library in Bryant Sfluare. and said that
artists generally liken It to a boys marble in a
teacup. He also said that the only way modern art
could survive was for the city to nurture it either
through a museum or by giving It orders for work.
Question of Association of Harvard and
M. I. T. To Be Submitted.
Boston. March 30.— At a meeting of the corpora

to-day it was voted to refer the question of asso
ciating the Institute and Harvard University to the

the close of the meeting President Henry S. Prltch
ett issued the following statement:
"At a meeting of the corporation of the Institute
it was voted to refer the tentative plan for co
operating with Harvard to the faculty for a report
as to its educational advantages or disadvantages,
and to transmit it also to the alumni for an expres
sion of their opinion. Sufficient time will be allowed
for a full and free expression, both on the part of
the faculty and of the alumni."
