Paul Keglivich, of Southern Hun
cjary, Arrives, Starts for
Hotel, Disappears.
Austrian Baron and Lieutenant
Intimate He Wished to Bury
His Identity?Mistaken for
Maeterlinck at First.
Somewhere in this great city of the
Western world Is a real Croatian count,
go far as is known he Is alone, aava for
l.?*KiO crowns In his country'" **otn an 1
a pedleree. Ho happened into this port
?Mvrly yesterday morning in the staar
age of the North German Lloyd liner
Barbarossa, here from Bremen. Land?
ing at the Battery late yesterday after?
noon from Ellis Island, he took a taxi
cab for the Hotel Grenoble. Last night
he had disairpeared.
C??unt Paul Keglivich was the name
under which he was registered at the
Immigration Bureau. Two friends of
his, seen at the Grenoble last night, said
that waa his baptismal name. But ho
wasn't going under that name now. they
added. He had "checked" that at Ellis
Island and had set foot on American
soil under a name not his own, deter?
mined to become a man of mystery. He
would be hard to find, they said.
The friends at the Grenoble were Lieu?
tenant Hans Karl von Reiter, of the 12th
Austrian Dragoon?, and Baron George
Pelathy. Th< y reached here from
Hlfini. Bohemia, on the Kr?n Prinzessin
Cacilie last Friday. They were surprise?!
to learn that their friend, the count, had
crossed the ocean In the ?steerage. They
wrote, under the Impression that he had
i ome on the Barbarossa because she
Tva?< a second class boat. He was of a
?cood. old family, they tad, and they
wondered slightly that he had only l.tKTO
crowns In his pot k?t. Presumably that
"?as his monthly income, which they in?
timated was a mere nothing to a Hun?
garian count
??ne thousand .tours equals, when
?hanged to American gold, about |2M.
Pome indigent people anvmd the Bat?
tery when he landed figured that the
taximeter would fat up most of his cap?
ital on the way to his hotel, which
stands at Seventh avenue and &6th street.
Count Paul, however, was to all appear?
ances as carelcsr of his wealth as Hun?
garian r.obl'ineii are credited in novels
wi'h belnaj. Stepping brioklj trota the
ferry house in high healed shoes and
gaitera tight fitting ovtareoat and ivory
headed can,-, he flash???l a monocla on th<
astonished tnxl driver.
"Must be Maeterlinck." commented
one of the ship new? reporters, and with
hoi,. born of sudden inspiration he
sdd?*<l: "Take It off; we know you."
It stayed on. A more careful Inspec?
tion dashed the new born hope, for it
showed not a middle aged man of intel?
lect, but a youth, obviously under thirty
and confessedly _ome years younger.
To Inquiries as to where he was going

According to statistics Issued yesterday
by Edward S. Cornell, secretary of the Na?

pedestrian who attempts to dispute the right

yesterday in a balky elevator 1n the Post

patiently until the large oval cage could
be released from It? wedged position and
hauled up to the second floor.
The wait occurred on the elevator In tha
northeast corner of the building, which
has only recently been changed from

delay might have been much longer had
not workmen who were busy at the other
