suspicion in the paiaeo ns to Mllo, Helfine's
uso for her strange friends. Just what was
browing at court Was not surmised until Mile,
vaearesco began to ridicule generally tho pro
posal to marry Crown Prince Ferdinand,

Charles has been communicating with tho
Hohenzollorn as to tho disturbance that she
has raised at his court. The rumor thsn
spread that sho had sot her rap for tho Crown
Prlneo and such hub proved to bo the ease.
That her marrying tho Crown Prlneo would

studious, and unoldlerly young Fer
dinand of Hohenzollorn was pretty easy
game, nnd his romantic aud groat-hearted
nunt was too much infatuated with her fa
vorito to reulbo the perils of tho ohase. In
vain liratluno. Carp. Sturdza, and other Cas
sandras of lEnumunian statesmanship warned
tho King that this transcendental lltora-y
hobby at court was likely to come to a bad end,
nnd that the Vaearesco influence was threaten
ing the .sufoty of tho country. Tho King was
blinded by tho Queen, and tho Queon was
blinded or kept in tow by Mile. Uelcne.
Tho Crown Prlneo suddenly developed nn
amazing fondness for Carmen fiylva's literary

Among tlio aristocratic fnmillosof Iioumania
a worm was browing, although the worst wus
not known. Complaints oumo to tho King
thick and fast from nobles and statesmen and
vv-oro communicated by him to tho Queon. but
sho kept her own counsel and In high-flown
angimgo rejnicod among her friends ot simi
lar eccentricity that real lovo had trlumphod
and that u plain Vncaresco and a Prlneo of
Hohenzollorn had found each other's honrts.

shadow of that crown which hovers over tho

hearts will beat with joy whon tho happy
coup o plight their troth ut tho altar."
Either Carmen Bylvu Is a false prophet or
Iioumania has few patriotio hearts, for the
more the Impression got altroad that tho
Crown l'rince was In danger of holng trapped
by tlio Queen s fuvorito tho louder became tho
grumbling around the court of Jluehurest
Tho Quocn. to be sum, partly porsuaded her

sho hnd persuaded him that tho Vacaresoo

embassies; but he treated tho matter rather
gingerly at best, i,nd whon tho stirm of gen
eral Indignation broke ho had no hoart to de
fend a match that always had been against his
better judgment An element In precipitating
this storm was it photograph of Carmen bylva.
Mile Viiciiresco. and Prince Fordinand. King
Charles, fortunately for his crown, was not In
it. i he yuoon was represented In this photo
graph as sitting on a low chair and regarding
with rapt uttention Apollo and the Muses. At
her feet tiro shown thn Prince and Mllo. Helcno
lookinc unutterable things into each other's
oyos. Although but six copies of this photo
graph wore made, the Cabinet got wind of Us
existence, and there was stormy weathor
mound the palace nt Bucharest. Tho King
tulktvil with tho Crown Prince, found him de
termined to marry Mile. Holene. and so con
sentod reluctantly to lay the mat tor beforo tho
Ministerial, Councllon the next day. Hardly had
U'. pfpwu 'rincu gone when Gen. Lahovary.
Minister of War. arrived. As ho spoke with
the hing Carmen Hylva broke In upon them In
a high btata of excitement und tod the Gen
eral thn whole story of tho match. The Gen.
eral said the match was IrapofcBlble. A scene
followed, involving the Minuter. King. Queon,
and tho young couple, nna Carmen.Hylva In a
passion dismissed the General with the words:
I am Queen, and tho opposition of two
dozen .Ministers will not keen me from accom
plishing what I think best"
.The, General went nnd on the next day nt
the Ministerial Oduncll told all about his sorry
experience at the palace. The Ministers gave
the King a lecture on the evljs o.f petticoat
Sov eminent, und unanimously pronounced
le match Impossible. When Carmen Bylva
heard their verdict she falntod. Bho was taken
to bed, ill and prying, und has not yet recov
ered from tho shock. Crown Prlncn Ferdinand
was btliT-nepked. and said he would do as he
pleased. The King oujlbd a council of all tho
statesmen of the, land and llstoood to thoir
opinions. Gen Florescu said:
"Hire, do not take this stop, for It moans the
ruin of you nnd your dynasty,"
Demeterhturctza said to tho Queen:
Dt not forget, your Majesty, (hat we aro
Roumanians. Although to-day wo fight to tho
death fpr your Guvornment. to-iuoVrow. if you
toko this stop, you will stand alone,''
Upon hearing these words tho Queen fainted
again ana was carried to her room. Ber
health was shattered. She was taken by her
physicians to Venlci. accompanied, desnlto
thnprotmtaof all Bucharest. iy Mile. Ueline.
For sevoral weeks repvntod but vnln efforts

paokod off tn another direction, and some

It evor was-dospito olllcial asseverations that al 1
thought of the match ha been given up bytho
lovers. As late as on Oct. l!Otrie G'auJois an
nounced that a frlenil of the Crown l'rince
had Informed the editor that the lovers
hot! Just met again, and, , had , ronewed
their vows. In coso sho should win. hor sixth

Mile. Ilulono would hnrdlr bo able to win her
seventh nnd bo n Queen. .The alternative for
tho Crown Prince, as expressed by Carp and
endorsed by iioumanlun statosmon of all
parties, I:
"Hire, marry Mllo. Vacarosoo If yon wilt but
It you do you must resign your right ot suc
cession to your brother Charles."
Tho truth of reports as to King Charles's ab
dication is. of course. In doubt. That during
his recent visit tn Berlin tho King discussed
tne contingency with Emperor William IL Is
regarded ae reasonably cortuln. Tho justifi
cation of sueb an act could bo found easily
in the loss of prestlgo by King Charles
nnd his Queon among their subjects.
There Is a strong feeling in Bucharest
thattltoBConesof thisyoarat tho pulaco will
handicap tho King ns long as lio may sit on
the throne, nnd that tho oonlldenco which ho
won from his subjects by arduous nnd wise ef
fort through twenty-five years of his reign,
now lust can never bo regained. Tho ten
dency of public opinion in Iloumanla Is indi
cated thus uy a newspaper correspondent in
Bucharest:
"Tho dynasty has been iraurod greatly by
the vvholo affair, especially by the headstrong,
rash, and masterful behavior of tho Queen.
Bliarn words aro spoken concerning her. such
ns, Tlio beet thing she cau do is to lenvo Iiou
mania altogether; in Nouo Vrlcd sho may
make poetry jwd matches nil sho pleases,' &c
The Crown Pr.'nco Is donouneed for 'his ego
tism, his sulktness. und his dependence on
women nnd courtiers.' Even tho King gets off
badly nt tho hands of the poople. who say that
he has ' shown tbut lio has a weak character.' "
Tlio most deplorable rosult of Mile. 'vnea
rcsco'Blntrlgulncatthooourtof Bucharest Is
Indicated by tho last words of this quotation.
Beforo ho beeamo tho victim of his wife's ec
centricities, hor favrtrlte's schemes, and tho
Crown Prince's gullibility there was not a
more highly repected sovereign tlinn King

tho jim-jams, which led him to beliovo that the
proper thing for him to do was to commit sui
cide. Mr. Donohough flnt attracted attention
on tho streets of Rochostcr, after making up
his mind to die. by kneeling down at tho side
ofastono horse block and then battering his
head against it with nil the force ho could oom
mnnd. Three timos. according to a eitlzeu who
was a witness to tho quoor scene, tho remorse
ful railroad man pounded his head against the
solid stone, and eacli time tlio blood gushed
from his head. The three blows not having tho
desired effect. Donohough aroso aud, covered
with blood, made a dlvo for a tire plug which
was In tho vicinity. Ho struck tho iron like a
battering ram. head first Tho sound of tho
collision was heard nearly half a block, and
tlio crazy man rebounded sovornl feet from tho
shock. Thoro woro many spectators by this
time, nnd everybody was afraid of him. for ho
kept constantly shouting that bo was tiicro for
blood and death. Ot tho former lio obtainod
plenty, but the latter didn't seem any nearer
after the man's assault on the tiro plug than It
was before Denoln uh had started In.
"Alter butting tlio tiro plug until it seemed
to tho frightenod spectator mat his skull must
bo reduced to a pulp, tho rum-orazed follow
ceased his efforts for a moment He then saw
a man driving down tho street with a team
that was going ut a goml. stiff gait With a
yell Donohough ran iniotbostreetund jumped
directly In tront of the team, ana stood ready
to lie run down. Tho driver, by a quick move
ment succeeded in turning tho horses asldo
sufllclontly to clear the man. and tho wheels of
tho wagon grazed him as they sped by. This
encounter with tho man and the team
seomod to give Donohougli a new Idea, and
away lie tore for the nearest street-cur line, lio
wuitod until a car had come along to within a
few yards of him. nnd thou dashed forward and
throw himself across tho rails. Tho driver
hastily nut on tho brnkosand turned tho horses
out ot tho track and stopped within threo feet
of thu prostrate man's body.
Foiled In his attempts to get hlmsolf run

Quickly jumping to hlsteetho rushed fiom
tho street to thu sidewalk, and, leaping In the
plr, turnod and came down with u crash with
his head on the flagging. Ho ro pea tod this
twice, and although he was now red with blood
from his head to his feet thoro was no evi
dence of any weakening about him. After his
third Iungo against tho stone sidewalk ho saw
or heard anothor car coming, and once more he
ran und threw hlmsolf in front of the horses.
Tho driver of this cur succeeded in stopping it
and lllce a flash Donohough got to his feet and.
with lowered head, rushed toward the car
horses. He struck the heavy Iron-bound
games of one of the. horses with his houd.
That shock knocked him down, but he took
advantage of tho fall to crawl between the
front legs of one of tho horses and placo him

-An Xafclbtt at the Calcao Fair. ,
If somo of Uioso eminent persons whoeo diet
Mr. Word Mo alllster regulates noted tho Karl
and Countess ot Abordoon In tho stcamahlp
lists several woeks ago and turnod to their
dog-eared peomgos for further light, they can.
not fall to havtj found that both tho Earl and
the Countess had many ancestors and titles
and estates, and' would bo altogether doslrabio
people to know.
The Earl ot Aberdeen Is a plain, unpreten
tious Englishman who hns oomo ovor hero with
his wife whtlo sho attends to a matter ot bust
noss that Is publla rather than private.
The Earl and Coqntees of Aberdeen aro close
friends of Mr. Gladstone and warm sym
pathizers with the movoment for homo rulo
for Ireland. Tho Earl was Lord Lieutenant ot
Ireland during part of 1880, and In that tlmo
both ho and his wife loarnod a good doal about
Irish affairs. Since, both have IntoroBtod thorn
aelves in the people of Ireland. Tho Countess
of Aberdoon has been ospooially active. She
has organized a socloty tor the betterment of
tho condition of the poor ot Ireland, and has
manaeed in a quiet way to do moro good than
many politicians who have wearied tho world
with oratory.
The Countess ot Aberdeen observed that In
Ireland agriculture ot a poor sort genoralry
was tho only occupatioc of tho people Sho
saw that the hands of the poor womon of
Ireland wero idlo for want of any occupation
(o which to turn thorn. Bho saw that thoso
bands were swift to loam and skilful to oxe
cuto. Sha noticed that in a small way tho
Sisters ot tho Irish oonventa bad trlod to
om ploy thoso hands at tho making of laces
and embroideries, and that whtlo tho results
wero small they woro good. Bo tlio Countess
sot herself to organize. Irish Industries on a
large scale, and raise the making' of laoesand
embroldories into a national occupation tor
Irishwomen.
Thore was a time whert the women of Ireland
mode laces nnd ombroMerles that were tho
admiration of tho world Tho t attorns they
used still exist in the old books. Those pat
terns were got out and tho movoment was
begun. Tho Countess unod her groat eoelal
prestlgo to got many eittnent pooplo of all
parties into hor socloty, which is callod the
Irish Industries Association. Politics was ex
cluded from tho association, whoso solo busi
ness was to help tho poor to help themselves.
This association. whicV started In 1887,
has a depot in London and anothor In Dublin.
It has a powerful social backing. It has
earnest secretaries, who travel all through
Ireland, taking patterns to Irish hom.es. toach
ineirlsb Angers how to Callow tho patterns,
collecting the laces and embroideries, and
paying for them. There is not the suspioton
of an effort on tho part of ?he organizers to
mnko money. It Is only a irasiness-llkt en
deavor to Increase tho napptnuBs and useful
ness of a poor pooplo.
As those goods wero now to tho market tho
Countess and her friends havu had to intro
duce them. They have mude the Celtio pat
terns popular in Londou. und u the real merit
of tho Irish product has boen shown, tho
things woven at tlio firesides of Irish cabins
or in demand. Although In Its swaddling
clothes, the association 1b an assured success.
So when tlio Earl and Counties of Aberdeen
camo to this country theycamo-to spread tho
demand forth products of Irish manufacture.
Tho Countess wishes that thesu Irish manu
factures shall have a placein tho Chicago Fair,
which snothinkt will boa good nlaco for tlio
wholo American people to raako their ac
quaintance. Tho Irish Industries Associa
tion Is not rich. To make this Chicago exhibit
about S15.000 is required, and the Countoes
hopes to raise this sum in this country. or at
least a gooa part of it.
binco her arrival in this country she has
visited New York. Boston, and Chicagn. and
sho will visit Washington beforo her return
to England. Iu Chicago and Boston she or
ganized strong efforts to aid In raising tho
necessary funds. In Chicago she was es
pecially suocessfuL Sho Is nowtn Now York
to soo what can be dono here.
Hho and her husband and their small daugh

Tho Earl is a tall, slender man. with a
dark beard nnd a fnco of a student Lady Aber

spirits aro of the best Bho has bright brown
eves that look at ono dlrectlv. Hur halt la
brown, and is not dore In tho latest fashion,
nor, indeed, in any lute fashion. Nor was lior
gown In anyway pronounced. Her voloo is
sweot and pleasant to hear. Bho in practical
and good-humored, an earnest woman, who
bus much heart in what sho Is spending hor
tlmo and money for. She told what arrange
ments she had mado for tho Chicmro Fair.
"We aro to have." sold she. "twoilglble

thoso will bo wholly encased in glees. Thoso
rooms havo boen placed at our disposal by
Marshall Field, who also takes a wnrm Interest
In our work, uud who. I am conlldetxt will glvo

'The glass room will contain full-sized

From this It will bo seen that Lady Aberdoon
is interested In and has fuith In tho revival of
all branohes of Irish manufacture, bho lias
several or thorichest men in Chicago on lior
subscription list, nnd sho also has many who

big English Insurance company to insure tlio

fratornity quite as much. It cost hlra $4,000
for a limited period, or 8 per cent, but thoro
aro hundreds of owners of valuablo horses who
would like to pay the same porcontago for nn

As a rule the owner of on exponsire thor

There was ones a horse Insurance company,

owing to the comparatively short lives of

It seems as if it would pay the big owners to
form n mutual insurance company. They
know that racehorses and thoroughbreds of
all kinds reoeivu much more oaro and atten

they aro far less liable to Injury. It has boen
claimed, as an objection to the Insuring of

tq Impossible. n horsemen know tho value of

lmportanoe and far-reaching conscquenoos
of a final settlement of our relations with
Canada upon tho basis ot political union:
therefore I desire to reply to somo ot Mr.
Wlmsn's importunities for a treaty of unre
stricted reciprocity with his native land,
through The Sdn.
We, have 1,500.000 native-born Canadians rd
siding In this country. They camo hero bo
causo they could do better for thomselvos or
thoir famlllei than they could by remaining In
Canada. They aro among our very best, most
active, enterprising, public, spirltod. ambitious
and successful citizens. They represent ono
thirdof all tho living Canadians upon this
continent Thoy wore unwilling to wait for
political union. No ono charges thorn with
disloyalty, not oven tho most rabid Tories.
Ernstns Wlman Is preeminently the greatest
living Canadian resident In the Unltod States,
a broad-minded, generous-hearted, clear
sighted, oarnest student of oubllo affairs. For
a quarter of acontury ho has boon an actlvo
and Inspiring workor among us, always loyal
to tho host interests of his adopted country as
ho saw them, intensely loyal to his native land,
and over on tho alert to promote Its honor or
Its commercial and financial development I
honor him for his dovotton to tho interests ot
his countrymen, and I appreciate tho mngnl
tudo of tho servico ho has rondorod at his own
cost and exponse to tho pooplo ot Canada.
He lovos the Canadian pooplo. Bo do
I. My residence of twenty-flvo years
among them was ono long object lesson
of their sterling worth and high character.
As I havo said on many other occasions, thnv
are our cousins and our equals. Thoy are
Americans tn principle, policy, methods, nnd
aspiration. They are geographically and
commercially inextricably bound to us. Thoy
aro separated from us by a sontimontal
political tie only. It is for our host Inter
ests and tholrs that tho political tie by
which they are united to another continent
should be forever severed. Tho Canadian
question can nevor bo Anally settled until It is
sevored and Canada is left froo to arrango her
own future.
No living Canadian see? more clearly than
Mr. Wlman docs tho immense value to Canada
of free accoss to this markot secured for a
long term of years. He sees, for oxamplo.
that the iron minos on the south shore ot Lake
Superior 'aro supplying 10.000.000 tons of ore
annually to various furnaces in Ohio. Penn
sylvania, Michigan, and Illinois; that a small
royalty of 50 cents por ton for the ore yields an
annual income of $5,000,000. or the Interest nt
Ave per cent on $100,000,000: that equally
gooa mines on tho north shore havo no pro
ductive or convertible value: that freo access
to this market would place tho Canadian mines
on a par with tho mines on tho south shore.
He sees that in Nova Scotia tho Londonder
ry Iron mines, whero iron has been
mado of oxoollont quality for nearly
forty years, only a few miles from
tidewater at Halifax, can be bought for half a
million dollars, including blast furnaces, roll
ing mills, Ac. He sees the Nova Scotia
coal mines close by almost unworked. Ho sees
near at hand an almost unlimited supply of
shipbuilding timber, nnd ho says Given free
access to tho market of tho United States for a
long term of years, Halifax with its suporb
harbor would become the Glasgow ot North
America. Ho sees that Mr. Blaine has laid tho
foundation for a mighty trade with Spanish
America in tho near future In all kinds of
machinery and railway supplies, 4c, and
that Halifax has the location and command of
tho raw material to secure a largo pereontago
SLl tr?dfl ifT?,h? c?uy only share In tho

that the Londonderry iron mines and Nova

000.000 to tlie province ; that Halifax would
bcoome a great shipbuilding and manufacturing-seaport,
and that Its largo oonsuming
population would add Immensely to the value
of all the agricultural lands of Nova Scotia and
Prlneo Edward Island. Ho scos clearly that
Montreal would bocome tho greatest rival of
New ioik on the Atlantic coast, not only as an
Importing nnd exporting city, but as a crnut
munurai'turlng centre, und that with a popula
tion of a million It would enormously increase
the convertible, value of the agricul
!uraLJunds of ho Frovince of Quoboc:
that tho same results would follow in Ontario
and tho Gonad an Jvorthwest: thnt popula
tion would flow Into Canada and cause a raar
yollous increaso In convertible values of all
kinds of real property. Ho understands that
without tho increase In population there will
bo very little, if any. increaso in productive or
convertible values. Ho realizes that If the ox
pdus now going on from Canada to this coun
try continues there will bo a steady decline in
convertible values: thoroforo no wonder ho

Mr. imun asks us to give Canadians all tho
rights, privileges, and boneflts of American

Mr. Wlman. knowing It to he a fact that wo
have the largest surplus in 1801 of food prod
ucts wo ever produced, should not have written
such trash. It is not creditable to his judg
ment. He must base his Importunities for
reciprocity upon stronger grounds. The ex
cess of exports of wheat trom Canada over
imports of wheat into Canada has averaged,
for tho past ten years, less than S.5OU.O0O
bushols annually. With the largest crop I
Canada has ever produced, her surplus for
ltfttl will not exceed 10.UUU.U00 bushels, while
our surplus will roach, in all probability, 250,.
000,000 bushels. How absurd to argue that
within ten years wo shall be ln any degroo de
pendent upon Canada for our supply of bread I
Canada is now dependent upon us for her sup
ply ol corn and hog products. If she did not
rocelvo thorn from us she would not have, with
a full crop, any surplus of wheat for export
Again. Mr. Wlman asks us to open our mar
kets to Canada upon the basis of reciprocal
legislation, rather than by treaty, for a fixed
term of years. Mr. Blake, the greatest living
Canadian statesman, has pronounced Mr.
Wlman'splnn "an unsubstantial dream,"
I first visited Canada ln 185 and made a
carefnl Investigation of the agricultural possi
bilities of the province of Upper Canada, now
Ontario, and since that time have been an
open a -d avowed advocate of the political
union of the two countries. I went there to
reside in 1881, and returned here in 18tJ. I
am familiar with the agricultural, mineral,
and lumber resources of ail the provlnoes.
Canada does not produce anything which we
do not either admit free or produce ourselves
in excess ot our consumption. Why should we
open our markets freo to her surplus products,
aud not to similar nroduets f rom Mexfeo. South
America, and European countries so long as
she insists upon being controlled and directed
by a European power adverse to the develop
ment of our foreign trade?
Wo havo an Inexhaustible supply of Iron ore
for centuries to come. Why should we volun
tarily adopt a policy which will causo capital
and labor to be expended in opening and de
veloping Canadian minos, and thereby bo di
verted from ourown mines? Tho iame condi
tions exist as to other loading industries.
Mr. Wlman appreciates tho enormous power
which the largo coneumer has to open the
markets of the world to Its surplus products,
and also tho power of a nation which is Inde
pendent ot every other nation for its food sup
ply and tho produots of skilled Industry to
mako advantageous commercial treaties witlt
other countries, and ho Is Intensely anxious
to soeure all tho advantages of our position for
his countrymen by inducing us toadmlttheir
surplus products freo int this markot. that
they may be sent to nations with whom we
havo made liberal trado arrangements, as
ourown products.
Mr. Wlman anneals to our hearts nnd not to
our judgmont whon ho endoavors to persuado
us to enter Into a treaty of reciprocity with
Canada, If ho will direct his energies to con
Vert his countrymen to demand Independence
or political union with this country, ho will ap
