Hi acts ore done " by tlio grooe of God." havo led
H all patriotic statesmen to bo tearful and un-
H certain u to his nttltudo In oaoh now crisis in
I H European politics. t
Tho old Emperor professed complete relt
' asco oa Ood, and nevor failed to give a Trilling
W hMrlastoall proposals of his Btato advisers.
B Koboilr srumbles at the occasional mistakes
' ettho present Emporor, as, for Instance whon
M , h planned to visit Btrasburg with King Hum-
fort or sont tho Empress Frederick on hor
'B celebrated mission of reconciliation to Paris
B but complaints are heard overywhoro that the
Emperor's ovory act Is the) result of sudaon Im
pulses, ondorsod by tlio crowd of sycophnnts
that (111 tho German court. Tho Emperor's
personal relations are govornod completely
by his llkos and dislikes.' and ho carries theso
private prejudices Into public affairs. Ho does
not brook contradiction, and refuses to hear
arguments against his decisions. Suggoa
i tlons from Mb Btato advisers arc usually met
with sharp roproof. aa tho Emporor thinks, nn

nate all the plans tor new pollclos.
Occasionally, howovor.ho takes u well-veiled

; ' The ehronlo affoctlon of his car has dovoloped
$ a strong tendency to constant pettlshness In
bis onoe sunny disposition, and his supreme
efforts to koop every detail of government in
his grasp have strained his norvos and shaken
his constitution. A good illustration of the
Emperor's conduct toward deserving mon who
for trivial reasons havo incurred hlsdlsploas-
i ure is glvon by tho case of Goo. Von Podblol-
j sky. This man Is one of the most brilliant
W cavalry officers In the German army. By some
V, Incautious remark, conveyod to the Emporor
1 by n professional courtier, Podblelsky in-
i curred the displeasure of1 'William as
Crown Prince. The Goneral was thon
Colonel of the famous Zlethen Hussars
and In popularity was second to no man in the
army except Moltko. It was impossible for
William to prevent his promotion to a Major-
Generalship. but as soon as possible the young
Emperor had him appointed to tho distant
command at Metz.
A few months ago the Chief of the Goneral
fjtaff ordered Podblelsky to elaborate a plan
for the defence of Meti In certain omorgencles.
The General Staff was so pleased with the plan
produced by Podblsky that it ordored copies
of it to be sent to ajl Commanding Generals In
tho western frontier districts for their, guldr
anoe n future operations. "The Chlof of th

about hfm or rjls w'orlO. - . ,.
'When Podblelsky heard of this scene he
banded ln'his resignation, and the Emperor
accepted it immediately.
'y Prinoe Fuerstenberg, an able and wealthy
cavalry officer, had a still sorrlor experience
with the Emporor's temper. Puorstenborg was
fanatical in his dovotion to the service and
commanded a squadron of tho Imperial Hus
sars of tho Guard. Ho was onoe a great favor
ite at William IL's court, and tho young Em
peror frequently passed an evening at his
house. Ono evening tho Emperor invited him
self to dinner, and was chatting affably with
the Princess, a daughter of the Duo de Bagan.
When he happened to glanco at the label on a
bottle of wino. Immediately his faco becamo
etem. and ho said sharply to the Princo:
"It seems that you have not read my order
to my ofuoors tabooing French, wines. This
champagne Is not sparkling hock."
The Prince replied that he had read theor-
I daf. but supposod it applied to tho mess
room. Ho did not dream, ho said, that it was
intended to affect officers In thoir private
housoholds. Ho had. moreover, ventured to
offer It to his Msjosty on account of his fond
ness for tho French brand.
"I HuppoBo. then, you did not think much of
my order?" contlnuod tho Kaiser.
"If your Mnjosty must know," answered the
Prince, " I did not It was Intended, presuma
bly tn promote oconomy, but German spark
ling wine? are much lighter, the officers are
llkolytodrlnktwlcoas much as they drink of
-similar French wlnos, and tho object of tho or
der Is thus defeated."
This candor increased tho Emperor's anger,
'and (ho departed shortly In very bad humor.
The next day hotook pains to Insult the Prince
before the officers of his regiment, remarking
that ho lacked tho qualities of a good squad
ron commander. The Prinoe forthwith re
signed. The Emperor subsequently relented,
and offered to reinstate him. The Prince, how
evor, turnod a doif ear to all tho imperial
In tho case of Von Kroslgk, another eminent
soldier, the Emperor's splto was frustrated by
theflrranossofhlsMinlsterofWar. As Crown
nines, William onco highly complimented
: l&ijor.GencrM Von Kroslgk upon the splendid
drllj of his cavalry brigade, adding impulsive-
I Wi,V)VhcnI am Emperor. I will give you on
,trmy corps to command."
KroMgk, Intending to express his good
, wishes for the 111 Emperor Frederick, clumsily
Fl replied: "Itrort that I shall not live to see
a that ,io.."
3 William took this as a personal affront, and
j upon ascending tho throne did everything in
,( l'l power to prevent Von Kroslgk's promotion.
j Alter nil hN efforts to defer tho time for Von
Jvroslck's promotion ton full Generalship had
Ucn exhausted, he requested tho War Mlnls
tfrtopabs over the ense. Tho War Minister
"If Von Kroslgk goes. I go too."
The Emporor ylolded to the force of this
threat, but Von Kroslgk is still on his block

Bhadow of suspicion rests are being kept under

watchod day and night and noposslblo avenue
of escapo is loft open. Parsons acting both In
tho interest of the bank and its depositors
havo secured tlio nld of detectives to assist In
ascertaining what .hns bcoomo of tlio stolen
money, and who wore directly or indirectly
interested in tho plundering of th Institution.
Large numbors of the depositors In
more romoto towns, of this' and ad
jacent counties, who did not loam of
tho failure until late yesterday, afternoon,
havo beon flocking to town to-dny. Many ot
(ho depositors navo boon clo'ncled with lawyors
at th'cir lio'raos and ofllcoa to-day socking
counsol and advice. It will bo a busy wook for
tho legal fraternity ot this city. Sovoral of tho
depositors havo boen In secret sosslon to-day
to consider tho fidvlsnblllty of calling a mass
meotlng ot depositors and others interested to
namo somo porson to act as receiver tor tlio
institution in whom thoy can place, the utmost
confidence that tho affairs of the bank will bo
wound up as spoodlly as possible, and tho de
positors rocolvo thoir money before it is usod
up in logal and other exponses.
Had tho trustees of the institution immedi
ately upon ascertaining that Treasurer Os
trande: was n heavy dofaultor placed tho
bank's affairs tn tho hands of tho Btato Bank
ing Department and asked for an immediate
investigation by export accountants, such as
has boon done tho past week, and had refused
to accept any deposits or transact ony further
business until such complete examination had
been mado. but llttlo odium would have boon
cast upon the management As It is, the
statement mado by tho trustees threo weeks
ago. backed up by many of tho leading busi
ness and professional mon. restored conQ
denco in tho institution, nnd hundreds of de
positors who had withdrawn their money dur
ing tho two days' run roturnod their deposits.
This was dono until tho very closing hour of
tho bank on Friday, whon tho persons In
charge must havo known ot its rotten condi
tion. It Is this more than anything olsa that
has exasperated the depositors, especially
thoso who live in this city and near-by towns,
and visited the Institution fretiuontly.
It is asserted by ono of tho officials of tho in
stitution that for nearly ayear there have beon
evidences that all was not right but that tho
trustees were desirous ot fixing tho responsi
bility where it properly belonged, and for tills
reason worked tho. case up secretly. Whon
tncy"s become assured'1 that Ostrander was
guilty of using the funds they deposed and ar
rested him. This they also did in the case ot
'hi s i assistant, MattHeWi T Trumpbour. The
wonder-is tnat.irnimpboar is i behind tho
bars," for' h ' bad... evair'. opportunity to
escape, having eaironwwseVteim. office on
Thursday and not .arrested until 1 o clock on
Saturday morning: That ho was. preparing
to oscape was evident at the time ot his arrest
for his trunk' wo? partly packed,' and had ho
not been arrested that morning ho would no
doubt have been on Canadian soil to-day. Tlio
supposition is that he did not hasten his do
pnrturo on Friday tor laok ot money.
Both Ostrander and Trumpbpur havo beon
extravagant nnd high livers. Thoy feasted on
tho fat of tho land at tlio oxpense of tho de
positors. On nil sides it Is asserted that wine,
women, and stock speculation havo been their
ruin. In tho case of Oatrander It may bo said
that on account of physical Infirmities during
tho past few years fio had somewhat modified
his former habits. A few months ago it was
supposodthat ho was at death's door, but by
constant nnd careful treatment his con
dition Improved, and hn Is now robust and
in fairly good health. That- ho continues to
enjoy a good cigar, wan evidenced yesterday
when he was brought before tho Mayor and
Recorder and remanded until to-morrow for
examination. Ho sat beside his counsol in an
easy ohair, complacently puffing awuy.
Ostrando? and Trumpbour have oaoh itottn
twlco married. For somo reason Ostrundor's
eldest son quit the parental'root Immediately
alter the father's second marriage and uover
returned. Whon ho visited thu town ho nover
spent bis tlmel at the old home, but with
friends or relatives. Bumor says that tho
caueoof tho trouble was that tho son had
selected for his wlfo tho woman who subse
nuontlv becamo Ills stenmothor. and whoso af
fections had beon to a cortaln degree alienated
by his fathor, who In those days had abundant
means at his command. i
Trumpbour, who camo from an old and re
spected family, though nowin his sixties is
what may ho called a nandsomo man. Always
urbane and courteous, though wearing an air
of pomposity, fuultlessly attired at all times in
tho height ot fashloq. with plenty of ready
oash, ho novor had any difficulty in finding
admirers among the fair sex. Ho is tall, ot
flood form, and of commanding prosonce. His
inlr is iron cray and hn wears a long flowing
moustacho to match. His llrst wlfo died about
two years ago. leaving no" direct heirs except
two grandchildren, twin girls, now about 14
years of pgo. it is said that Mrs. Trumpbour
left hor property to thoso grandchildren and
that Trumpbour has little, If any, property in
his own right Besides a city residence ho has
a country cottago at Mount Marion, on tho
West Bhoro Railroad, a fow mllos north of
here, where he sponds the summer months.
About a month or so ago tho community wus
somowhat surprised i to read tho announce
ment of tho marriage ot Mr. Trumpbour to
Miss Trnver, the daughter of a fashionable
milliner of this city and comparatively anew
comor. Bho is an attractive young woman,
and much sympathy is oxproBSod for hor.

ot Infidelity. La to on Saturday hlghtho shot
and killed her. Then ho shot John C Burch-(
ell, an old friend, whom ho accusodit Intimacy'
with his wife BurchoiHg pretty snro toJteK"
Osmond Is ono of thoso' devil-may-care,
happy-go-lucky follows who seldom do great
harm, and more rarely any good." Ho was ft
brass worker, but indolent' nnd shiftless al
ways. o worked only when ho could not got

pactly built 'Ills' ores aroigray and-small.
Seven years ago tho woman was good looking,
nnd sho had not' lost all hor comollnesa when
hor hdaband shot her. ' .
Up to September' two years ago Osmond
lived with hor ot 708 Third avenue At that'
'time Osmond's aunt Mrs. Eliza Cu'ahing, dlod.
Mrs. Cushlng had an adopted son. John C.
Burcholl. Sho lived with Burohell at 600
Third avonuo, between Thirty-ninth and
Fortieth streets. By hor will sho loft nil hor
personal property, money, and furniture to
Burohell. Burcholl had llvod with Mrs. Cash
ing slnco ho was 8 years old.
After-Mrs. Cushing's death Burohell asked
Osmond to soil his household furniture and
como to livo with him at 000 Third avonue
Osmond did so, and for u ttmo tho now ar
rangement worked well. Then Osmond grew'
jealous. Ho hud boforo chargod hlswito with
unfaithfulness to him, and had particularly
objected to her acquaintance with ono Chnrlos
Crotty. But now ho was suspicious of Burch
oll. Burohell Is a bacholor, and 40 years old.
It is insisted by his friends that his rotations'
with Mrs. Osmond wore always proper. But'
Osmond was surly and quarrelsome and there
were occasions when ho bent his wife
In Juno of this year ho had to go to Bellevue
Hospital for a oouplo of weoks. Whon ho came
out of tho hospital his wlfo refused to have
anything more to do with htm. Ho hung
around for a few wooks trying to ovorcomo her
resolution, but sho was firm. Early in August,
he wont to ljvo nt 010 Second avonuo in a fur
nished room. In tho moan tbno Mrs. Osmond
had begun proceedings torn divorce with ali
mony. Occasionally Osmond came to tho houBo
in Third avonuo and tried to seo his wife
Sometimes ho saw hor and thon thore was al
most sure to bo u quarrel. Ho was constantly
trying to induco hor to glvo up living in tho
samo house with Burcholl and to go with him
to his rooms in Second avonue But sho ctead
fatly refused to havo anything more to do
with him.
The neighbors say. and Mrs. Osmond's sis
ter. Mrs. O'Brlon. who llvos on the floor below
tho Burchell rooms, corroborates tho story,
that on ouo of tho visits whloh Osmond mado
to his wifo hn seized a carving knifo and
threatened to kilt hor. Bho escaped from him
at that time and had him arrested. Then, bo
causo liu plondcd that in his ill health prison
llfo would kill him, sho refused to mnko a com
plaint against him.
Last Tuesday night Osmond went to seo his
wife again. The papers In her divorce suit had
beon served on him. His mood was a mixture
of anger and supplication. Ho begged his wife
to return to him. stormed and swore bocauso
sho would not. nnd then went away.
For tho last few wooks ho hud beon working
for tho Interior Conduit and Insulating Com
pany, at 527 West Thirty-fourth street . Ho
lost his place last Saturday. When ho was paid
off ho took the money und gqf very drnhk. !

rooms, when ho wont In hls'wlfe and Burchell
wore sitting nt a table eating supper, Mrs.
Osmond's thirteon-yoar-old sister, Nolllo, was
with them. Osmond walked up to his wifo and
spoke to hor about tho divorco caso. Sho re
plied that she would not talk with him about
it, and told him that ho must boo hor lawyer.
Without any further talk Osmond drew his
revolver. His wife sprang up. and ho shot her.
Sho turned in falling, and he shot her again.
ShoBcreamed "Oh, my God!" as sho fell to
tho floor. Sho was dead in ten minutes. Tho
llrst bullet had btrnck her in the loft breast
and the socond In tho left side ot tho back.
Iiurcholl was looking nway whan Osmond
fired the first shot. Ho sprang upundranat
Osmond, but not In tlmn to prevent tho second
shot or a third, which ho received hlmseif In
tlio loft breast Then ho grabbed Osmond hy
tho arm. und In thu struggle which followod
tlio revolver was lowered a little, so that when
Osmond llred tho fourth bullet It struck Burch
ell in tho abdomen and onded the struggle.
