In MM fact, tho Queen was tho worst possible peace- 17 maker, at th Duko's recouolllntlon with hor 1 Mat been only ostensible, and their relations 1 arc attll atralnod. The blttornosa of tho Duko Hi Waa nursed by tlio Czarina, nnd la partially re- Iaffi sponsible for his last declaration that no set- tlementof the Guelph Fund Is posslblo with out an unauallfled recocnltlon of his right to succession In Hanover nnd Brunswick.

Tho general tenor of tho Interviews given by the Duke to the Emperor's representative showed that he was determined to stand firm on his first ultimatum. He still hugs the delusion. It 1 said, that in the noxt great European war j the Czar will restore him to the Hanovorlnu U throne. Thare Is a great nnd strong partisan feeling In some parts of Hunover In f.ivorot 1 the Duke, but thore is llttlo hopo that he will v ever be ablo to oust Prussia from liur prosont v position there.

The search wai I ' undertaken after tho Prussian Oovernmont 11 hnd boon informed that tho province w.is Fj covered by.n network of societies pledged to r open rebellion after the first German reverses in the next war. The documents seized ntthe time ot the search showed the existence of seditious feeling nnd the spread of seditions propaganda under the supervision ot many cpqsplcuous and wealthy Hanoverians. The ojsUtenceor societies for tho organization of rbbeltlon was found, however, to bo n fiction. Several persons arrested by the police of ?."'' PraMlA are still In prisons at Hanover.

I y In view of these discoveries and the Duko of I Cumberland's uncompromising attitude, tho ;S Em peror baa given orders at last for tho in- , troduetlon of a bill for the release of the Fund. His plan Is to have 24.000.000 marks used in i) improving the public works of Hanover and J th rest placed In the chest ot ready coin for Immediate expenditure for roohillzing tho army npon the breaking out of tho noxt wur. A bill to this effect is being drafted, and yes terday Chancellor Von Caprlvl. In tho Bolch a'ag. B3td that aftor this year no moro socret ' se vice money would be drawn from the Lk ,' QuelpUFund.

' Beggar Mesroehkl is well known tochnritn ble ilobroWB of New York, nnd is ospoctally well known to hovernl rabbis. Ilo Is 5 loot 7 inches tall, stout and dirty, and is described as homoless.

He wns assisted, like all poor llo irows. to get along, at lonst for n while, with out work, und ho concluded to get along en tirely without work. As a professional beggar ho was successful. Ho preyed on robbis clueily. Whon Importuned to do something for bim st'lf, nnd when tho monoy to start him was given to him. ho sometimes purchased n stock of ehoe strings nnd fancy goods and became a street fakir. But ho would never keep at it long. Tho first act of violence ho Is known to hnve been guilty of was committed threo years ago in tho houso of ltabbl Alexander Kohut ot tho East Fifty-fifth street synagogue Ho was ono of tho many Hebrew boggara who re ceived aid from woulthy manners ot that con gregation, and Dr. Kohut had given him monoy on xoveral occasions.

Ho pushed his way into tho hall, nnd then domandod S100 cash of one ot the ladles ot tho family. Tho oung woman was fright ened. "I want a hundred dollars."

Tho young woman ho confronted said sho had not tho money, and ordered him to leave tho house. Finally ho said ho would go provided ho got money enough to pay his way down town. Tho po liceman came in just than and grabbed him hy the nock with one hand and seized the pistol with the othor. Tho man wns locked up In tho East Fifty fifth btreot station. That night when Dr. Kohut got homo and a policeman nskod him to appear In court tho noxt day nnd mako a chargo against tho man. ho paid ho did not wish to prosecute.
