called "Marl «ie la Reine— de la Main Gauche"— in
other words, the husband of the monarch's favorite.
An obscurity is the kindest fate that he can
expect— an obscurity such as has fallon to the lot
of the husbands of Mme. de Pompadour, and of
Mme. Co Maint*non. That Is perhaps -why the
death of Philip Kristicz the other day at Mentone
has attracted so very little attention. He was In
his -per days a clever and successful man, a
brilliant •.Irian, who entirely through his own
merits had won his way up to the post of Minister
of Finance <-■'. Pcrvia, when m an unfortunate mo
ment he rr.amed the wonderfully beautiful and
enormously rich daughter of Joanidcs Bey, the chief
architect of the Sultan and member of an ancient
Klnp Milan fell In love with Arto.misia Kristicz
almost as soon as ever she appeared at his court
as a bria>. and ere long conferred upon her hus
band the roots of principal private secretary and
chief of the royal household: that Is to say. one of
the positions of greatest power and influence In the
klr.fioin. Queen Natalie, who had already had
trouble with King Milan In connection with his
attentions to Mm». Maso, the wife of the Greek
Envoy, and who had publicly Insulted her on this
cccvjrn at B court ceremony, speedily became aware
of Milan's infatuation for Mmc Kristicz, nnd after
manr violent scenes, not only between the King and
the Qu^en, but also between the latter and Arte-
Eiisia, Natalie deserted her husband and the king
dom, declining to live any longer under the same
roof that sheltered Mme. Kristicz. The latter, in
fact, was the cause Of the final separation of this
most ill matched of royal couples.
After Natalie's sensational departure, Milan,
ftndir.g the presence of Philip Kristicz a trifle awk
ward, sir.co Mme. Kristics was openly Installed as
the favorite of the sovereign, appointed him to the
roit of Minister at Berlin, where, however, he
foiuid co cold a welcome that, after waiting in
vaia for several weeks for an opportunity to pre
test his letters of credence to the Kaiser, he left
Berlin, eubseiuently Milan made an attempt to
Indue* the Italian Court to receive Kristicz. as
Servian Envoy, but It wa« unsuccessful, and there
upon Milan end Artemesla effected an arrange
raor.t with him whereby in return for giving his
consent to a divorce from her. she assured to him,
frcra her Immense fortune, a large annuity for the
rerr.idr.dcr or his life- With this he withdrew to
Russia, where he seme years later married a rich
Muscovite widow, and from that time forth divided
J-.ii existence between her estates In Russia and
til* French Riviera, refraining from ever setting
toot gain in Servla.
About a year after ho left Artemeeia she gave
fclrth to a boy, who received the name of Milan,
F.nd of whom King Milan openly acknowledged him
•tlf to be the father. The King was most anxious
to legitimize the youngster by marrying Artemesla,
but the sentence of divorce Which he had Induced
the Infamous Metropolitan of Servia to pronounce
between himself and Natalie was so palpably in
valid that it was eventually withdrawn, and as
Natalie would never give her consent to any full-
Cedged dissolution of her marriage, Milan was ur.
».bl* to wed Artemisia.
Profoundly disappointed. Artemesla eventually
abandoned Milan and returned to her people at

FERDINAND'S INSIGNIA AS KING.
Borne ten year* ago or more Prince Ferdinand of
Bulgaria, bent on transforming himself from a
rsere prince— vaseal of the Sultan— into a full
f.fcdgfd king, ordered for himself at Munich a crown,
a sceptre, an orb — In one word, the entire regalia
r.€rt&.lnir.g to sovereign majesty. By the time the
cut&t had been completed, at a considerable cost,
the great powers of twrope bad come to the con
clusion that t:.s time for an elevation in rank of the
ruler of Bulgaria was unproplUous and that It
would be well to await somo more remote date.
Accordingly, Ferdinand, who hem Inherited all
the thriftiness for which his grandfather. King
"Laula Philippe of Franc*, was 6o distinguished, in
tlßMSet to the Jeweller that it would be well for
him to retain the regalia until it was needed.
Weeks developed Into months, and months Into
jretLTS. end finally the Jeweller, Who had a consider
able amount of capital tied up in this Insignia,
rsfitsi which he could have turned to good account
If nt his t'eposal, requested Prince Ferdinand to
take possession thereof and to pay him, at any rate,
a. or tic aof the money due. >-s Ferdinand did not
see any immediate prospect of becominj; king, ha
turned a deaf ear to the suggestion of the Jeweller,
who at length, finding all hig protests and demands
unheeded. Instituted legal proceedings against the
prince in the Bavarian courts, and at the name
time placed on exhibition in his shop windows at
Munich the crown, soeptre, orb. mantle, «word and
throne, intimating that they had been ordered by
the ruler of Bulgaria, bot had been left on his
hands. It was not until all Europe was laughing
at the previousness or the prince that finally his
clever old mother. Trlncesp Clementine of Coburg,
the only surviving child of Kin* Louis Philippe,
and popularly known as tho 'grand old woman of
Europe." learned about the matter, paid for the
regalia, took possession thereof and sent it to
Sofia to her favorite son
There it has remained locked up ever since. But
n °w- It has been taken out of !ts rapes and polished
U P. for the moment so long and ardently awaited
D >' Prince Ferdinand ia nt hand, and every one of
the great powers, Including even the Sultan, has
withdrawn former objections to the transformation
of Bulgaria ir.to a kingdom. It is generally felt
that Ferdinand deserves ;i good deal of credit for
'■'■'• sarvfees which he hHs rendered to all Boropa
In averting war In tho Halkans and that t v :
tlve quietude o f the Macedonian Nationalists since
the beginning of the conflict between Russia and
Japan, over a year agro, is mainly due to his states
manship. The crown ls therefore coming to him
'n the way of reward. Of course, it must be un
derstood that be Is assuming it himself, and not le
celviiig It from the hands of the great powers; but
he could not have done bo had they maintained
their objections, which they have now waived.

Mr. McCormick and French Presi

Pirls, May 2.— Ambassador McCormlclc was re
ceived by President Loubet at 5 o'clock to-day.
Shortly before the hour for the reception a squad
ron of cuirassiers, escorting: three state coaches,
galloped up to the American Embassy. With them

Baron Roujeaux, representing the Foreign Office

Ambassador McCormick and M. .Mollard entered
the first coach, which was drawn by a pair of
bays with gilded harness. Coachmen and out
riders were In state Livery. Lines of cuirassiers
stretching from curb to curb flanked the Ambassa
dor's coach. Throngs lined the Chan. & Elysees to
see the equipage pass. At the Palace of th* Ely
s£e long lines of infantry encircled the court. As
the party drove within the circle the band took up
the. American national anthem and the French tri
color was lowered in salute
The reception was In the Salon dcs Ambassa
dcurs. where M. Dclcasse Introduced the Ambassa

In presenting his credentials Mr. McCormick
spoke of the century of friendship uniting Franco
ana the United States In an alliance more enduring
than that of treaties. ■!.;.■ also to the recent
closer feeling of friendship between France nd the
Mother Country of America. These lings of
rriendship, he said, were of the greatest benefit to
commercial and pacific interests, which were those
of the progressive world.
President Iyiubet. replying, said France had no
prouder heritaf'» than her part in the work which
brought the powerful American nation Into being.
JUoro than a turv s test had not been able to in
terrupt the friendship.
AET UNION SCHEME PROSPERING.
Members of Two Bodies Believe It Will
Make Possible Exhibition Building.
Th.p scheme for the union of the National Acad
emy of Design and th«» Society of American Artists
is prospering. Harry W. Watrous, secretary of the
Academy of Design, told a Tribune reporter yes
terday that the board of control of the society had
appointed a committee of three to meet a similar
committee of the academy, and that these con
ferrees would probably agree on a plan. Lawyers
will have to look after the legal difficulties.
Kenyon Cox, a member of the council of the
Acadejny of Design, taid the scheme of the union
of the Academy of Design and the Society of Ameri
can Artists was a step in the> direction of erect
ing a great exhibition building, which would be a
central art home. The Joint committee was now
busy trying to reconcile the interests and ideas of
both societies, he said.
Mr. Cox said it was hoped to make a body of
artists so representative of all elements of Ameri
can art that It would appeal to th« public, and
that the money for a great art building would be
'Mr. Cox declared that no one could tell now
whether the scheme would be adopted by the
Academy of Design or the Society of American
Artists. It waa only a question of time, how
ever, when the two bodies must become practically
Identical, he said.
Frederick Dielman. president of the National
Academy of Design, said he had heard of many
academicians Who were In favor of the union. It
would seem, said Mr. Dielman. as if su.h a union
should finally dispose of the oft heard reports
about dissensions. »
Mr. Dielman paid, the public would be benefited
much more than the artists by a united fine arts
building. Failure to realize this explained, he said,
the extraordinary condition that New-York should
be far behind many third rate Western cities in
facilities for art exhibitions. The proposed union
■would bring about a clearer understanding of the
amicable relations existing between the various art

MISS BAKRYMORE IN IBSEN.
JMlss Ethel Barrymore appeared last nl?;ht a3
in "A rH>H'p House" at the Lyceum Theatre.
Behind that simple announcement lies the story of
a young woman's ambition nnd an audience's sur

corner in p.iblle regard; she has been petted and
pictured and praised. But that she could play a

company were called out again and again.
That the company (and the stage manager) de
served their share of the greeting it is essential
to insist on at once. Ibsen himself turned with
scorn on the actress who told him he wrote "great
parts," shouting that he did not write parts, but
Plays. A sano narration of the Btory, a clean-cut
handling of all characters, a desire on the part of
everybody tr> g i Y e the play a hearing for Its own

VX EXCISES AT HAMPTON.
John Graham Brooks and Booker T.
Washington Make Addresses.
[BT telegraph to the TRIBCIfE.]
Hampton, Va . May 2.— Hampton Institute is
celebrating this week the thirty-seventh anniver
sary of its founding by General B. C. Armstrong.
To-day 13 Virginia Day and the beautiful grounds
°f the institute are thronged with visitors from
many States, including tho members of Robert C.
Ogden's party of educators from the North, large
delegations from tho Richmond and Norfolk
educational associations, and a body of Hampton
alumni, assembled for their tenth triennial re
union. The morning spent In studying the
Hampton method of learning by work In shop,
classroom and kitchen. ,
An unusual and interesting feature of the formal
txcrclses of the afternoon in the flag draped gym
nasium was the sinking of native Indian muaio by
Indians of six different tribes, some of whom were
in costume. The mueic included cradle, feather,
dance ceremonial and religious songs of the
Pawnee, Arapahoo. Hopl, Seneca. Sioux, and
Apache- tribes. A Pueblo song was sung by Miss
Natalie Curtis, of New-York. Graduates of the
school told how Hampton had changed their ideals
and made possible for them useful, self-respecting
lives. At the -.lose of the pn>er?.e.ma addresses
were made by Booker T. Washington, John
Graham Brooks and others.
Mr. Brooks spoke of some of the fruit of Hamp
ton, telling of tha progress of negroes in various
parts Of the South directly attributable to the
influence of Hampton graduates. The real busi
ness of Hampton, he said, wmJ to show how a
race could be disciplined into Independence and
how success was to be won In this school. If
Hampton fruit could be grown on a dozen limbs. It
could be made to grow on a thousand, he said. Mr.
"Washington, in his address, called upon the white
peoplo of both North and South to have patlenc-a
with his people In this transition period of their
history. Ho urged strongly the need of closer
co-oiieration between the white and black people
of tha South, it was largely due, he said, to such
conferring together In various communities of tho

MANY APPLAUD MODJESKA
Testimonial to Actress a Success —
Padereicski Sends Letter.
Tho testimonial to Mme. Modjeska at the Metro
politan Opera House, yesterday alternoon served
the- triple purpose of awakening fond memories
of a fine actress by a renewed slcht and sound
of her. of affording a large number of people tha
opportunity to offer her their tribute of respect
and admiration, and finally of gaining for her a
substantial gift— $10,000. The expenses of the
performance were about COM (including, as in tho
case of the Holland benefit, nt to Mr. Cor.rled
for the opera house), and the Illness of Padercwski
undoubtedly had a bad effect on the attendance.
The houso' was far from filled. Had the great
Polish pianist been able to appear probably 16,000
more would have been realized.
De Pachmann. taking his place, opened the pro
gramme with a group of Chopin numbers. He was
followed by Ada Reban and Guy Standing in a
seena from "The Country Girl." by Miss Ella Kus
sell. who gang "Dlch Theure Halle" ar.d tho Baca-
Gounod "Ay« Maria." and by Mrs. Patrick Camp
bell, who. in a "superb Rossettian gown of black
and gold, recited the un-Roesettian poem, "High
Tide on the Coast of Lincolnshire."
lime. "Modjeska herself then appeared In three
scenes from '"Macbeth." Her entrance was the sig
nal for prolonged applause, and a perfect stillness
greeted her every word. Her voice was full and
steady, and her foreign accent, it »eemeci to many,
less pronounced than of old. She was supported
by James O'Neill as Macbeth, bouts James as Mac
duff, by John Malone. Horace Lowls, "Vincent Ser
rano, and others. With such men as Mr. O'Neill
and Mr. James, with th« voice and style to fill the
spaces "of the opera house, tho great arousal
scene stirred tho audience profoundly.
After this seen* Edmund Clarence Stedman. in
the absence of Mr. Winter, presented to the actress
a scroll bearing the names of numerous players and
men and -women distinguished in all walks of life.
His address was felicitous and charming, and no
less so was the reply of Modjeska, who was again
hailed with long applause, as still again after tho
sleep walking scene.
David Bispham, who also read a letter of regret
from Paderewskl. then sang, and the programme
concluded with Act in of "Mary Stuart." with
Mme. MofIJ OUSTS as Mary. Mary Shaw as Klizabeth.
Kate Denin Wilson as Hunr.uh and John B. aTsllsul
as Leicester. These players were In Modjeska's
company in the same parts when she put on the
play here long ago.
Padeiewskl. who wan not even able to b« present
in a box, though his wifa attended, admirably
caught the spirit of ths testimonial In his leiter.
For many months I have been looking forward to
May 2, anticipating one of the greatest Joys of ray
career. Th.' thought of joining you all on mis
solemn occasion has been my pride for many
months. Tho sudden adversity of fate makes me
feel now grieved and humiliated, and words cannot
express all the bitterness of my disappointment.
But there is still a pride and a joy 1 cannot be de
prived of— the prido 01 belonging to the same ~<->un
try. to the same race- which sent into the wide
world ..no of the greatest and noblest artists I
times and nations; tho Joy of being one of p.. any to
whom Mme. Modjeska had been good, kind and
generous. The first encouraging words I heard as a
pianist came from her lips; the first successful con
cert I had in my life was due to her assistance.
Unable to be present. l beg of you to convoy to
Mine. Modjeska the homage of my profound ad
miration and gratitude and to extend my slneerest
thanks to all who contribute to make this day the
day of legitimate and crowning triumph for a
career great, noble pure and beautiful.
