ENTERTAINING THE PRINCE
Social Engagements Occupy
Much of Fushimi's Time.
Prince Fushimi of Japan, who Ss spend
ing several days in New York, was enter
tained at luncheon yesterday by Henry
Clews, at his home. No- 27 East 51st street!
The prince and princess. Consul General X-
Midzuno and Sirs. Midzuno and the prince's
staff made up the party. Lindsay Russell,
president eg the Japanese Society, was a
Kuest. In #;e evening prominent Japanese
residents of New York gave the prince a
dinner at Sherry's. Thirty covers were
.laid, the Princess Fushimi and Mr. and
Mrs. Midzuno being present
To-nieht the Japanese Society will give
a dinner for the prince at the Hotel Aster.
During the day he intends to visit the
Brooklyn navy yard, and, if possible, will
co to Mineola to watch the aviators. The
prince was very much disappointed when
the bad earner Interfered with his pro
posed trip to Mineola yesterday. Some lit
tle time will be spent at the navy yard, as
Prince Fushimi is very much interested in
naval construction. He is a veteran of the
Japanese-Russian war, having been a lieu
tenant on Admiral Togo's staff on board
the battleship* Mikasa This interest In
naval affairs is what, leads him to believe
t?iat he will enjoy his coming trip to An
napolis as much as any other part of his
American tour.
He eoes to Philadelphia tomorrow, and
will spend half a day there, then visiting
W&shinerton. The Annapolis trip will be
made from the capital.
Th© Drtnce will visit Boston. Niagara
Falls and Chicago before he goes to San
Francisco. The present plan is to sail from
the Golden Gate on June 21. and thus com
plete the world tour. "When the prince
reaches his native land he will have be-in
away from it for two years, most of which
time he has spent in Europe's capitals.
Washington, .Tune s.— Semi-social and po
litical in character will be the visit to
Washington this .veek of Prince Fushimi-
No-Miya. cousin of the Emperor of Japan,
and his wife. Ostensibly their visit has no
significance, and is merely part of a world
tour which the couple are taking Prince
Fushimi is a sailor man. with an excellent
war record behind him. As an incident to
his visit to Washington he is to inspect
the naval gun factory here, where are be
ing manufactured what American naval of
ficers honestly believe to be th« most for
midable naval weapons in the world,
namely, the 14-inch rifle 3 that are to be
placed on the two new Dreadnoughts.
The social features of the prince's visit
will be numerous, and will keep him busy
from the time he arrives in Washington on
Tuesday until his departure for New York
at the end of the week. He will din" with
the President and Secretary Knox; will at
tend a formal reception and dinner by the
Japanese Ambassador, when he will have
an opportunity to meet all of the diplo
matic corps; will exchange the usual cere
monial visits with Secretary Knox, and
finally will make the trip 10 Mount Vcrnon
to see the tomb of George Washington.

life of him I couldn't remember > the
maiden nam! of the humorist's first
wife, who die* before he came to New
York, leaving him a little daughter.
This daughter name is Margaret Por
ter. She is nY eighteen years old and
a successful sort story writer herself.
A few year ago the. writer married
Miss Sarah C«eman. of Asheville,. N. C.

the home of M r - Griffith's mother. Mrs.
8. P. Griffith.of No. 19 East 41 at street.
The reasonMe desire of Mr. Porter to
share none ft O. Henry's fame has
brought into'existence a vast quantity
of O. Henry legend. The legend runs
that he has en tramp, tintype artist,
book agent, penny-a-liner, prospector.
cowpuncher. [rtlst and druggist.
Demi's of His Life.
As a mattr of record, he went to
Texas while till a boy and spent nearly
three years jn the ranch of Lee Hall,
the ranger. In 1894. to further an in
born literarypmbition. he went to work
on "The Huston Post." . Two years
later ho bought Brann's "Iconoclast" for
?250. Lateral ill he gave the title beck
to Brann. ai* called his own paper "The
Rolling Stoi»-"
It ]iv°<] oty a short time, however,
and then its^ditor and owner embarked
for Centra! ».merica with a friend, who
intended to lecomc interested in banana
raising, but 3id not.
"Most of my time there." said O.
Henry. "I Inocked around amon? the
refugees a.m consuls."
Back to Txas he came, and for two
weeks after lis arrival he tended a soda
water fountiin in a drug store. On this
incident is founded the myth that he
was once a druggist.
"That wai a rotten two weeks." said
he in one »f the very few Interviews
ever had vith him, "They made me.
draw soda vater, and I gave up. "
"A lot o': stories have been printed
about me. and none of therm is true," he
went on in this same interview. "Ifs
been said ttat T was once a cattle thief.
The nearest I ever got to that distinction
was going iown on a friends ranch to
learn cattle raising. Another story is
that 1 have been a miner. T never saw a
mine in ror Hfe. Then, there's the old
yarn that I was a tintype artist. So far
as this is concerned. I must admit that I
ojkp had a tintype taken with my arm
draped gracefully over a lady's shoulder.
"An Embroidered Fib."
"Then there is that infernal newspa
per over !n PittFhurg which printed the
story that when I first began to write I
blew Into its office looking like a tramp,
offered manuscripts for sale, and, be
fore blowing out again, borrowed a dol
lar. That story is an embroidered fib.
Why. I was rhe best dressed man in the
office, unless it was the editor, whose
shoes were a little more pointed than
mine."
After the drug: store experience O.
Henry drifted to New Orleans and thence
to New York. His wandering influenced
his work Texas eivep the setting for the
volume of short stories called "The Heart
o* the West." Central America !b the
scene of "Cabbages and Kings." "The
Four Million." "The Voice of the City"
and "The Trimmed Lamp" are stories of
New York City. "Th*» Gentle Grafter"
is a volume which has no home. Last
year he wrote his only novel. "Roads of
Destiny." Mr. Page called it an elon
gated short story.
Mr. Hall, who when editor of "Ains
lee's" told O. Henry that if he would
come to New York he would pay him
$1,200 for twelve short stories per
annum, said yesterday that ■ the hu
morist's regular price at the time of
his death was 25 cents a. word. He was
careless about money, though, the ed
itor added, and frequently they would
give him a check for $1,000 and tell
him to write them a story. This means
that O. Henry was among the four or
five 'highest paid writers of his time.
Fond of Pitching Coins.
"He had a brass bowl in his room,"
said, Mr. Hall, "into which he used to
pitch coins for the fun of the game.
He would get over on the other side of
thf room a. id see how many coins he
could land in the vessel. This gave
him so much enjoyment that the bowl
was kept pretty full, and whenever he
felt the need of funds he would help
himself from It."
Mr. Page said that his publishing
house paid O. Henry stiff royalties, so
that his yearly income, he thought, must
have been a very comfortable one. But
often, the publisher said, the man would
leave his money at the office, not know-
Ing what to do with it. ur apparently
not caring what became of it.
"What advice would you give to young
writers?' 1 O. Henry was once asked.
"I'll givp you tlie whole secret of short
story writing." he replied. "Here It is:
Rule I— Write stones that please your
self. There is no Rul" '_' ."
Ho worked constantly almost up to the
day of his death. Recently he had sp*>nt
nine months in Asheville. at hiss wife's
home, working on a new plaj. Since his
return to New York ho had complained
of ill health, and ioin< identally lio also
announced his Determination to try
writing in » serious vein. But li" hid
the medicines the doctors prescribed,
and only last Friday Dr. «'harles R. Han
cock, of No. 12»> East r.4th street, was
called in to find kirn sitting up in bed.
gasping for breath The doctor saw he
was In a serious rondltion and ordered
him to the hospital.
The funeral will be held to-morrow, at

LIONESS MAULS KEEPER
Duchess Thprebv Maintains Tra

FATHER FINDS DAUGHTER
Chronicle of Resort Sunday In
cludes Story of Child Injured
in Runaway.
To those who braved the elements yester
day Coney Island was a land of eventful
happenings within her limits everything
that is calculated to stir up emotions In the j
human breast took place. The cycle of
events started with an attack upon a keep
er by one of Captain "JBck" Bonavita 8 j
vicious, omnivorous, man-eating lionesses,
and from that auspicious beginning ran the
gamut of human emotions, finally end;rr*
up with the finding of a stag« struck daugh
ter by her Irate father on one of the tin
selled stages of Coney Island's Bowery.
Th» crowds who throng Dreamland Park
of a Sunday have become so accustomed '••
seeing the hairy lions and tigers make
murderous attacks upon their keeper?, that
they would feel that they had not received
their moneys worth were this important
number in the programme to be left out.
Consequently, while they were grouped
about the cage yesterday afternoon to se a
what they should see, the word went around
that the attack had begun, and everybody
1 crowded a bit closer and stretched their ears
and necks, the better to hear the bloo«l
curdling growls which came from the run
way whore the group of five lions and two
bears were being handled by Peter Taylor, a
trainer.
'As the story --as told by an. entirely dis
interested spectator. Taylor was trying to
drive the animals from their cage to the
performing: arena, and to do this it was
necessary to make them go through th*
runway leading to the arena. Within On
darkness of this runway, but out of sight
of the populace who were waiting for the
spectacle, one of the lionesses, by name
Duchess, which attacked the same trainer
about three weeks ago, again so far forget
her good manners as to make another at
tack upon Taylor.
Keeper Fights for His Life.
Duchess knocked Taylor down with en»
sweep of her powerful paw. and when he
attempted to rise *o his feet again he was
once more brought to earth by a righ*
swing. Taylor then drew his revolver and
fired a blank cartridge at Duchess wth
th© idea of frightening the vicious beat
The shot did not work with the desired
effect, however, and Taylor was forced to
sit down for the third ttec
Five times did Duchess mak- Taylor
take t! c count of "ten." and he was about !
to throw up the sponge when Captain
•Jack " and another trainer. Henry Falken
dorth, who were outsid« the arena among
the spectators, and were attracted by the
revolver shots, went to Taylor's assistance
Seizing stout iron bars, they rushed into
the runway, and after a desperate battle

Duchess The lioness was then driven
Into the arena, waere she took up her
proud position on a pedestal, constructed
for that, purpose Taylor was then earned
into the arena within plain sight of ths
spectators, and Dr. Roff. of the Dreamland
emerg-ncv hospital, was called to attend to
his hurts. It is said that he will recover
from the mauling he. received
After this experience most of th* cro-*» d
of fifty thousand persons who made the
f-ip to Coney Island's sandy shores busied
themselves in trying to find something to
wet their palates with, and from the wav
in which corks were popping and glasses of
the foaming substance disappearing it was
judged that the majority were successful
in their search
As the crowds vert thickest on Surf
avenue, about 3 o'clock, the attention of
everybody tvas distracted by the sight of
a young woman being led through the
streets by Pa'rolman Bohmke. of the
Coney Island station This in itself was
„o t po remarkable, as was the fact that
the young girl was arrayed in the flimsiest
costume and her face and hair were 'made
up" with liberal use of cosmetics and
paint brush. By her side walked an elder
ly man. who ?a*d be was her father
The trio made their way to the Coney
Island police station, where the father
lodged a complaint of -vagrancy against
his daughter. He told the lieutenant on
the desk that Rose Houseman, bis child,
had been attracted by the call of thr stags
and the white lights and had slipped away
from her home on Tuesday last. He had
searched high and low throughout the r-ity
for her without success, until lie finally
thought that she might have tried to get a
position at one of the Bowery music halls
on ron* I^' TslamJ
Father's Search Rewarded.
• While he was conducting his hunt for the
lost daughter, and had almost given up
hope of ever seeing her again, he was at
tracted by the sound of a high and beauti
ful soprano raised above the ceaseless din
of the barkers. Some peculiar, familiar
rote in the human nightingale's upper reg
ister caused the father to peek bis head in
the doorway of a music hall.
He was rewarded by seeing his daughter
on the stage, and the words she sang— "lf
You'll Only Take a Tip from Me" gave
him an inspiration. He hastily left the hall
and found Patrolman Bohmke. whs ar
tested the young songstress and marched
her to *he station. She will appear in the
Coney Island court this morning.
The crowds in front of Dreamland w<re
scattered to places of safety when a run
away horse, drawing a four-seated car
riage, took fright at a trolley car and
bolted. The animal was driven by Albert
Johnson, of No. 554 Atlantic avenue. Brook
lyn, who has only one arm. Just as it
reached a point opposite the Culver Depot
the horse ran Into a delivery wagon and
threw Johnson and Ms wife and hah; to
the street. The child was badly injured and
was treated by Dr. Noble, of the Coney Isl
and Reception Hospital, and taken to that
institution.
The polW of the resort had Httle to

and few exHse violation?. Most of th^ 'are**

PLEA FOR POOR CONVICT
Colonel S. H. Church Asks for
W. W. Ramsey's Freedom.
[By Telegraph to Th» Trtbane.]
Pittsburg. June s.— Colonel Samuel H.
Church, prominently connected with the
Pennsylvania Railroad and personal repre
sentative of Andrew Carnegie at Pittsburg.
has created a sensation here by his utter
ances in reference to a pardon asked for
former President W. W. Ramsey, of the
German National Bank. of Pittsburg. H
has forwarded a letter to Governor Stuart
himself begging a pardon for the banker
on the ground that he has been sufficientlr
punished through exposure.
Ramsey is known to be a poor man. and
Colonel Church, in an interview regarding
Ms letter to the Governor, does not mince
matters in reference to lav- as now ad
ministered, declaring that justice now
"presents one law of tender and lenier.t
compassion for the rich, and quite another
law of merciless and exacting rigor for the
poor." He cites the fact that rich Presi
dent Em!l Winter of the Workingmen's
Savings Bank and Trust Company under
recent conviction was permitted to go to
Europe under JoO.OCO bail, while next day
a really sick man who had stolen only a
little was denied the privilege of going to a
relative's farm for a short time, but was
hurried into prison on a long sentence.
Colonel Church thinks that half the men
now in prison should be pardoned imme
diately, and that half the remainder should
have their sentences shortened.
