1 WILLIAMII.'SNEWAMBITION B ifM JEBVSALEM TRIP TO MAKE HIM A 'M LUTHERAN POPE. Prniiln'i Struggle of Seventy Years for n Foothold In I'ali-Mlnr rrntrnlonl Pros elyting and Clrrmnnlcatlon Go Hand In Hand In Holy l.nnd -Antl-Cnthollrlsm. Rous. Aug. 20. William II. "a Invitation to the reform churches to send representatives to the Inauguration of tlio fit. Xavlor's Church nt Jerusalem dhows tho true charaetor of tho Kaiser's journoy to Palestine. It is a manifes tatlon hT International Luthernnlsra under tho protcelloa of the Hohenzollerns. Fond of dramatlo setting and of glory, the young sovereign, after haying tried to play nil parts, now poses as the Pope of universal i Lutheranism. The festivals at Jerusalem In honor of the Kaiser will have the np pesranoe of a caronsnl of Continental Protestantism, of which the Rultnn will be the m strange impresario. With his love of splendor, H William II. wishes to Impress the plastic Im- W agination of the Orientals and to convert Jerusalem Into a sort of Mocoa of Lutheranism. One might ask on what grounds and by what light does tho head of a nation assume this mission. Is there not In this an exaggeration of pretentious, a skilful blow struok at the hutvhes of the Orient, which have always shown tho groatoat repulsion for tho cold bare ness of Prussian Lutheranism 1 Who gives this sovereign the power to thus claim universal jurisdiction over the reformed sects? We can understand that the Emperor I should address this call to tho Lutherans of Austria-Hungary, who aro working to incor rorate the Hapsburg empire with Lutheran Germany, but what Is the explanation of tho Invitation to the Lutherans of other countries ? The German Catholics, who. In all form, have (ought against tne French protectorate and who balled In the Emperor the Godfrey of Bouillon of the Catholio Orient, will probably sen what the ground thought of tho Gorman mplro Is. But I do not wish to start a polemic. I sim ply mark an evolution in Germnn policy under the (Bgls of Lutheranism. William II. Intends to take possession of Jerusalem ns a late Pope. This triumphant voyage, which should not be forgotten. Is tho coronation of three-quarters of a century of work. King Frederick William III. first conceived tho idea of the Lutheran l Caliphate of Jerusalem. A mystio like William II.. slightly crazy, oven. (William IV.) had dreamed of planting Lutheranism in the Holy City. His theological Dumont. Horr von Bun en, was inclined to fodernto all the reformed churches under the protoctorato of the Hohen Eollerns. His intrigues at Koine, his labors nd theological works, his journeys to London, his private conversations with the King and the different rellelous communities are a mat ter of record. Mgr. Janssen, the groat histo rian of the German people, tells of this quoor adventure In his fascinating Zeit und Lrbrnsbil ter. The romance had no result: the only wretched outcome of tho odyssey was the crea tion at Jerusalem In 1840 of a Lutheran-Anull- ean blshoprlck, the Sultan Riving his consent. But the still-born foundation went to ploces after a few years. Tho seed, however, had been sown ; Prussian Lutheranism had taken root. In 1852 Frederick William established a Brandenburg parish at Je rusalem. Agricultural colonies, charitable institutions, as well as religious, wero formed round the establishment. In 1800. just before the war. the Council and tho Kulturkampf. William I. wrested from tho Sultan the gift of Muristan, a quarter of Christian Jerusalem. of which the Crown Prince, later Frederick III., took official possession at the time of the in auguration of the Suez Canal. It Is there that the 8t. Xavier Church is situated, at whose con secration William II. will b present on Oct. 31 next. It will be noticed that the tradition is taking form. Prussia, in tho midst of Conti nental cares of the gravest chnractor. does not forget Jerusalem : It Is the fixed idea, an ad ministrative Idea containing a correct policy of the house of Hohenzoilem. Around this mod est nucleus rise littlo by little the Prussian Lu theran establishments. Frederick William sent to Jerusalem In 1851 the first deaconesses to aid the sick and the pilgrims. They come from tho Kalserswerth establishment, which is flourish ing. On the heights of Godfrey rises above the town an immense hospital, containing ninety beds and taking in annually 500 poor persons. l Arabs. Mussulmans. Jews or Christians. To tho hospital Prussia has joined aclinic, which ex tends Its services yearly to thousands of pa I 1 tlents. Out of this charitable asylum Prussia has formed a true centre of German Influence. -, I Boon, still following out the same Inspiration. M Prussia, in 1868. erected a girls' boarding I school, where a hundred orphans receive in struction and education. The Prussian Order w of Templars has crowned by Its labors this first attempt at Oermanlzatlon. It has founded an H enormous almshouse to shelter the poor and 7K the stranger. Grand Duke Froderick Franz of Mecklenburg likewise founded an asylum for sick children. In 1807 the Baroness von Kessenbrinck built a Lutheran refuge for ! lepers. The object which these organizations have is shown clearly by tho story of tho Prus sian Templars In 1884. These heroes of charity then showed themselves to bo tho eternal enemies of Catholicism. They scaled Mount Carmol. saeked It. drove out tho monks, and. If It had not been for the intervention of the French Consul, would havo transformed that famous sanctuary Into a citadel of Lutheranism. Around Jerusalem, in the modern town, where are situated the villas and consulates of the Europeans, Prussia has founded tho Syrian Orphanage. The German Institution is almost as large as the whole town. William II. gave It In 1804 all oivll rights. It Is really a fortress of Lutheranism. A Prussian pastor. Horr Bohneller, was the founder of It. Ho had long tried to enroll the people of the neighborhood, but without success. When the bloody perse cution of Mount Lebanon broke out and the unfortunate people fled from the mountains, Herr Behnollor took possession of a number of children and thus laid the foundation for the I establishment in 1800. To-day It Is a littlo kingdom. William I. presented bolls to the ehapol of the orphans. The students, divided Into eight classes, come from ull parts, from Palestine, Hamuriu. Galileo, Mount Leb anon and the Lake of Genesareth: 1,500 ehildren are educated In It. Instruction be gins In Arable, and ends exclusively In Gor man. It is a thoroughly military enrollment. The ohildren become blacksmiths, carpenters, potters, tllomakers. shoemakers, tailors, cabi netmakers and turners ; the establishment has printing press of Its own and publishes the Metirnoer of Zion. In a speoial seminary schoolteachers and pastors aro educated to Germanize Palestine. It Is a great German, Arable-Lutheran colony; a branch house has been oreated at Cologne, the Pulestinahuus. which Is the commercial outlet for the prod uote of the house, merchandise of all kinds, works of art, Ac, These are the establishments of the Lutheran Germanize! Ion In Jerusalem which tho Emperor goes to bless in the character of the Pope of Lutheranism. In the country districts they have the same organizations. Since tho Kaiser's Invitation to all Lutheran sects, the Catholics f who wish to take away from France the pro tectorate over the Christians lu order to give it to the house of Hohenzollern will open their eyes to the general idea of tho Lutheran em pire. The Protestants of other countries must settle for themselves whether thoy wish to place their resources in the hands of Prussian ambition and become the followers of the young I sovereign. W1U William's pilgrimage succeed ? Will not the strange demands of these embarrassing ltd noisy ambitions perhaps bring about the reaction whloh they should cause in spite of the elvlllty of Abdul Humid, who is making use of the Kaiser as being the savior of his sick em pire T iMNUltlNA'lo.

It Rm Illm Arrested Agsln-Hls rigs Ac rnaed of Being III Smelling. The members of the Country Club of West Chester have again raised their voices In pro test against the Annoyances of Frederick Lohhanor and his Pleasure Park. Two numths ago Mr. W. Butler Duncan, Jr., and other members of the Country Club apiicarcd before Magistrate Flammer to bear witness to the awful chaos of noises and smells which afflicted the peueoful citizens of West Chester and especially the members of the Country Club. Lohbauer was held for trial In the Court, of Kpoclal Sessions, but by some inad vertence the case was assigned to General Missions, and cannot como to trial for six weeks or more. Meanwhile through the golden summer sea son Lohbuuor has been Industriously fatten ing pigs and putting away In the vaults of the Bowery Havings Bank the shekels from his Pleasure Park. Each Sunday ami each holiday a baseball game was played for endless innings, and tho carousal swung merrily around from dawn until midnight to the accompaniment of the strange music of l.ohbauer's steam organ. Un I .lib. it- Day the Mabel surpassed all tionnds and the heat-tnden breeze wnfted the odor of the venerable pigpen directly across the ver anda of the Country Club house. Mr. E. C. Potter had invited some friends from Newport for the day. and late In the afternoon had carried them over to the Country Club to enjoy the evening shade. "What Is this strange odor?" asked one of Mr. Potter's friends. Mr. Potter's mortifica tion was not to be expressed in words, and he asked his friends inside, swenrlng a solemn oath to see the Ixvhbauer nuisance abated if he should accomplish nothing else for the re mainder of his life. When he learned that tho action ngnlnst Lohbauer had been temporarily shelved he appeared before Magistrate Slnims at the Centre Street Court and got a second warrant for the German's arrest. The charge against I)hhauer Is that he "does wilfully, knowing ly and unlawfully keep and maintain, operate and perform with and play upon and per mit, and cause to be kept and maintained, operated and performed with and played upon a certain sound-producing instrument in such a manner and at such hours of the day and Tight as to annoy the health and repose of per sons abidiug in dwelling houses in that vicinity." When Lnhhnuer nppoarcd before Magistrate Kimms yesterday to answer to Mr. Potter's complaint he said: "our Honor. I have been once nlready on this same chnrgo arrested. I havo not yot been tried." He was Informed that he must answer to the present charge, so asked for a postpone ment until Thursday, whloh was granted BOUND TO WIN A WHITK BRIDE. But the Immigration Ortlclnls Still Detain Hamilton's Sweetheart. Martin Hamilton, the black American who expected yesterday to marry Maggie Wood, a comely young Scotch immigrant who arrived here on Thursday, was at tho Barge Office ready for the ceremony early In tho morning. The girl was also willing, but the special board of Inquiry wanted more time to con sider Maggie's case, which Is tho first of its kind In the annals of tho Immigration Bureau nt this port. That meant to Hamilton and his counsel, T. Thomas Fortune and D. Mncon Webster, that Commissioner Fitchic still hoped to llnd a way of preventing the marriage. Dr. Lorenzo I'llo. counsel for the special board of Inquiry, suggested that decision in the caso bo postponed until to-morrow, to i give the lawyers time to consider the iegal and other aspects of It. Counsel for Hamilton ' and the young woman were willing to let it go over a day. but they declared that if tlio i board of Inquiry refused to let Maggie laud. they would take her caso before a United ! States Court on a writ of linheas corpus. 1 The points that will bo talked over are: In I nsmuon as Mangle once renounced Hamilton In an affidavit and at the sumo time admitted that she had no money, cannot she be ex cluded us an undesirable immigrant likely to become a public ehurger Has not Hamilton, as a self-supporting American citizen, the right to marry the woman to whom he be came betrothed abroad? Would not Hamilton and the girl get into lots of trouble because of the laws against miscegenation in many States? Counsel for the board of inquiry may , point out that there nre twenty-four States ; and Territories in which the marriage between 1 whites and blacks Is void. Among tho States aro Colorado, California, Oregon, Nevada, Idaho. Utah. Indiana. Kentucky. Maryland. I Delaware. Texas. Virginia .mil est Virginia. I It would be practically impossible for Hamilton to live in any of the far Southern States if he should go there with a white wife. BOTH WEARY OF M ARRIJ.QE. Thomas W. Taylor and Hit Wife Apply to the Courts for Relief. Laura M. Taylor has brought an action in the Supreme Court to have annulled her marriage to Thomas W. Taylor, a clerk In the Western National Bank, on the ground that it was brought about by misrepresentations as to his Income, his station in life and other mutters of a personal nature. Mr. Taylor also wants to , havo tho marriago annulled because, ho says, bis wife represented herself as a single wo- ! man when, in fact, she was the wife of Thomas Colin Campbell, who was alive at the time. The Taylors wore marriod on April 11, 1807. at Naveslnk Highlands. They agreed upon urticles of separation last January. Taylor contributed to his wife's support until last May. whou she brought the action. Ho says sho Is the mother of Taylor Charlos Campbell, of whom her former husband Is tlio father. Mrs. Taylor dutiles the former marriage, but admits on information and belief that Csmp- l bell was alive on April 18, lns'7. a week alter her marriago to Taylor. Her application for alimony was denied yesterday by Justice Cohen, who gave le-r a counsel fen of $50. Mrs. Taylor says that Taylor represented that he was the son of a wealthy merchant and would Inherit a fortune, and that he had nn In come of $4,800 when ho married her. It did not take her long to discover that this was not so, and then she left him and went buck to tier mother. Mr. Taylor declares that he did not misrepre sent himself, but that his wife told him she was a single woman, and that tho child she had was I a son of her mother's brothor. Ho agreed when they separated to contribute to her support two fifthsofhls salary, and ho continued to do so I until she sued him. Sho constantly made do- mauds upon him for money, and told him Mr. i Campbell Intended to hare him arrested. He think-Campbell is paying her an allowance of $110 a month. THIEF KABBED AT TIFFANY'S.

A theft was committed In the store of Tif fany It Co.. 15 Union square, at 2:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon, and before 3 o'clock tho man charged with thu orlinu had been haled I before Magistrate Cornell in the West Fifty fourth Streot Police Court, examined, and held In (1.000 for trial.

BVT THE POLICE DO NOT BKLTETE HUE WAS DBOWNBD. They Hay the Clothing She Left In the Bath house at Coney Inland Ii of Winter Weight nnd Well Worn She Took with Her, When She Left, Her Jewelry and Money Parents Discredit Elopement Theory. A dozen dotectlves were put to work yester day tn the caso of Miss Louisa King who dis appeared on Sunday afternoon, leaving her clothing In a bathhouse nt Conoy Island. As told in yesterday's Sun Miss King, tho daugh ter of Charles King, a retired wholesale grocer, living nt 17 West r'7th stroot, went to Coney Island accompanied by her maid. Alma Llnd strom. About 0 o'clock In the evening tho maid notified the police that her mistress had gone in bathing, but had failed to re turn, and she feared she had been drowned. The police found Miss King's clothing In tho bathhouse stall which she hud hired, and then started out to search for the young woman's body. A number of men employed as llfo snvers at Coney Island were directed to man their boats and sonrch In the surf. This was ' continued until midnight, and then Police Cap- i tain Dunu, who is in charge of the Coney Isl and forco, notified the girl's parents of her disappearance. Miss King's brother went to Coney Island Immediately and furnished the police with a good description of the missing girl. Sho was handsome, ho said, and 2,'t years old. Ho added that she had considerable jewelry when she left her homo shortly after noon on Sun day. He asked the nolico to question Alma about tho jewelry. Capt. Dunn took the maid Into his office and talked to her for an hour. She said that very ofton she had accompanied Miss King to tho seaside. Only last week, she said, they went to Long Branch. On that oc casion, she said. Miss King became acquainted with a man named Amos Chamberlain. She believed Miss King hud an appointment to meet him at Coney Island on Sunday. Upon reaching Coney Island Mr. Chamberlain was not found, she said, and Miss King seemed disappointed. Upon learning this story Miss King's brother instructed the maid not to talk to newspaper reporters about the case. The detectlvos were told later that Miss King I had boon seon about tho tlrao she was sup posed to have gone Into the water In Peter I Doyle's bathing pavilion, which adjoins the pa villon In whloh Miss King had hired a bath house stnli. She then wore a bathing suit and bad a wrap over her shoulders. Doyle said that this young woman hail taken one of his bnthhouso stabs and that she had a bundle under her arm. Putting tho story of Doyle . with that told of tho mnn Chamberlain, Capt. Dunn came to'he conclusion thut Miss King had not been drowned. Nevertheless, the po- , I lice searched tho bench all day yesterduy for , some trace of the girl. Miss King's relatives deny that thore is any possibility of the man Chamberlain being eon ; nectod with her disappearance. Hor father I told the police that Chamberlain was employed as private secretary to an officer of a trust ; company nt 26 Broadway. He said further , that his daughter became acquainted with Cham berlain about a year ago. When the case was first reported to the police ; by A.iu.-i Lindstrom the maid said that her l mistress was the daughter of a wealthy retired I merchant, and that Miss King had gone to i Coney Island for a day's outing with her par I cuts' knowledge and consent. The maid said that she and Miss King walked along the beach ! and Btrolled about the Coney Island Bowery I for an hour or so. Both then went in I bathing. She loft Miss King in t lie water, she said, and, dressing, loitered ulong the beach, paying no attention to her mistress until an hour later, when sho went to the bathhouse which Miss King had occupied and found It locked. She went out on the beach then, but could find no trace of her mistress. After an i other hour's wait on the beach she reported Miss King's. disappearance. The maid identi fied tbo clothing found as that worn by Miss King. With the clothing was found a copy of " i.ucile. " win -h the maid said Miss King had been reading on the beach. Capt. Dunn opened the book and found a pieoe of paper between two of the pages on which tho following verses I wero written : Corae to me, desre-t, I'm lonely without thee: Daytime- sad nlghtlmo l'la thinking about thee. Come, love, my heart In your sn-enne la weary; Bane, for mr spirit Is sickened and dreary. Come to the arms which Alone should caree thee; Come to the heart that la throbbing to press taae. Minx. When the girl's relatives saw a copy of the verses they said that they threw no additional light up m the case. They did not believe that Miss King was in love. Mrs. King, the girl's mother, said that she believed Louisa had ben drowned. "Two years ago." she said, "while we occu pied a cottago at Monmouth Beach. Louisa went bathing, and. being seized witli cramps, was carried out to sea by the undertow. She . was rescued just in time, and ever since she has been afraid to bathe alone. Hegardlng tho trip to Long Branch. I know ail about that. Louisa went with my two married daughters. Mrs. Armstrong, who lives in Jersey City, ami I Mrs Serviss, who lives at Glen Cove. L. I. I believe they met Mr. Chamberlain there. Louisa was not In love with him. In fact, sho was not In love with any man that I knew of. I am sutl.-iled that she did not commit suicide, because she was not that kind of n girl. She would have lett a letter behind her In case she did anything of that kind. "To-dny I was notified that tho body of a young woman had been found at South Bench. Doteetlvo Lynch, who culled at the house, said ho would like to have a photograph of my daughter to see whether the body found ut South Bench was Louisa's. The iioliee later In formed me that there was no truth in the story of the finding of a body at South Bcuch. I am I positive, however, that Louisa did not commit I suicldo, and as to the stories about hor huving eloped with Mr. Chamberlain, they are all un true. If Louisa had wanted to marry Mr. ! Chamboii.iiii her parents would t,ot have ob- jocted." Tbo snot whero the maid said Miss King went bathing is just above the Iron Pier. I Owing to the strong undertow, two men havo been stationed tliere during the season as life- I I savers. One of these, Cnpt. Charles Hellly, said yesterday that he did not believe Miss King bad entered the water at all. Ho remembered seeing a young woman walking along the beach attired in a bathing suit and currying a i bright-colored sun umbrella. This young Woman answers tbo description of Miss King. Iteilly said thut be had watched her for an hour, and during that time she did not go into the wator. Edwurd Baxter, another life-saver, employed , near the Iron Pier, said that there wero so many people In bathing on Sunday afternoon that it would havo been an impossibility for Miss King to have been drowned thero without . someone having heard of It. Hunter said that some of the waiters in the saloons along the Coney Island Bowery told him that they hud seen a young woman strolling ubout for an hour on the Bowery board walk. This young woman, they said, wore a battling suit. Cap:. Dunn said late last night that ho hail given up the theory thut Miss King had Ntn drowned. "I lud'etliat she ha- gone I away, probably to get married," said the 7'ap tain. and she has taken this way of doing It In order to deceive her parents. I understand that she had received attention from two young men, one of them poor und the other wealthy. She liked tho poor ono. and her family. I be lieve, wanted hor to many the rich one. "The clothing slin left in the bathing house was of winter weight and woll worn, not at ull i.u -Ii as a girl like Miss King would wear to the seaside And, besides, she carried awuy with her her parasol, pocketbook and jewelry If the furl hud been drowned, the body would limit ii'i'ii east upon thu beach almost Immediately, as the tide was rising ut the time she disup peured." Mr. King said last night: " I bellcvo the true story is that my daughter was being taught how to swim by thu maid. and wlnle trying to strike out for herself was carried away by the undertow and was drowned. Tho maid In her Ignorance feared to toll the Iioliee the true story, evidently thinking they would hold her responsible. My daughter was not in love with any one und has not run away. She had no reason to commit suicide. W'ehave I ull ol her belongings except tho red parasol. und we do not believe she hud u red parusol I witli her." Tho circumstances surrounding the disap paataucc of Mi-s King recall other Coney Isl and cases which remained mysteries for a long time. One of thebu was the case of Kvu Jewutt, a good-looking young woman, who was rm- filoyed in u bakery owned by her brotlier-ln-aw, Samuel W. Thornton. One day Thornton I took his sister-in-law to tVincy aland, leaving I hi- wi c ii, charge, of the bakery on Myrtle ave nue, Brooklyn. Thornton und Miss Jewell hired bathing suits ut ono of the bathing pa vilions. That night their clothing was found in Hie pavilion. The couple disupiwuiud and I were supposed to have been drowned. Four I weeks later they tinned up in Florida. I They said they hud gone lu bathing at Coney i Island and had been carried out to sea on a 1 wave, but managed to reach a log that was floating in the ocuun. After floating about for a long lime they were picked up by a passing Hchoouer and put ashore on the coast of Florida Then, they -aid. tliey trumped many miles before i.a dilng civilization. The members of the chinch win ii Tiioriiioii und Miss Jewett were In the habit ol intending did not b.liye the couple's story, und decided thult hey should be tried by the deacons. The trial lusted sev eral and , Bam and Kva were Jtoneratsd. 2aklPtliMlli'V,rtU to" K" - LIVE TOPICS ABOCT TOWN. Every New York club has Its kicker, who wins distinction by his persistency and activity In this direction. Sometimes the kickers serve a good purpose, nnd one club realized tho value of such n member when, not long Ago, an other member brought a typewriter into the library and refused to take It elsewhere, on the ground that ho had to do his writing there, could use no other instrument for that pur pose. and recognized nobody's right to ob ject to the presence of anything so well estab lished as a typewriter. He was ultimately dis lodged through the efforts of ono who had never before been appreciated at his correct value us a fsctor for order In tho club. An other organization Is wondering when Its kicker will prove his value In nn equally unselfish way. So far ho has confined himself to the correction of Improprieties so purely personal that tho club at large has not benellt ed by his interference. Tho thoroughness of his last nctlon has led the members who have heard of It to hoe that he mny some day ac complish a great deal for the benetlt of his fellows. One morning In the club dining room lie was seen to be laboring under more than the usual excitement. His state of mind reached Its climax when tho head waiter stepped to his table. Soon his neighbors learned that one of his soft-boiled eggs was cracked "Iok At tliAt," he said, calling tho man's attention to A microscopic crack lu one end of an egg. "Where lu the world do such eggs como from? Find out the farm at which they are bought and mako It a point to see that more limo Is fed to the hens. Then tho shells will be stronger and the eggs wil be fit for gentlemen to eat." The hend wulter promised to do what he could toward Im proving tho hens' diet, and as the members glanced at one nnother they thought that such a genius for kicking ought to accomplish wonders if his talents were ever turned in tbo right direction. A Now Yorker who recently returned from Franco paid a visit to Sarah Bernhardt nt the abandoned army barracks at Bellelslo, which sho has made Into a retreat for the brief period of each year In whloh sho rests from work. Ho dwelt on her freedom from all the ntVcctnlions of her earlier days, in whloh she was accustomed to sleep in a coffin and dis concert hor friends by making pets of wild animals. All of these eccentricities have dis appeared, and In the mellowness of hor some what advanced middle age Mme. Sarah, ns her friends call hor. has grown very much more like the rest of her sex. One eccentricity to which sho has taken for her vacation days j savors ot the strenuous days of her career. She will Insist upon taking hor daily bath on the roof of her chateau. The time selected for this ceremony is the lato forenoon, al though It is subject to any postponements and repetitions that the license of genius wishOB. At the appointed hour, whatever It happens to be, the bath Is prepared on the roof. Then the actress uscends, and in tho full glaro of Iho sunshine sho iierforms this func tion of the toilet, which Is usually accom plished with greater privacy in the ease of ! less distinguished persons. Tlio advantages ut the sltuat'on are to bo found In the sun nnd uir. which Mme. Bernhardt declares are ad juncts of a bath that she is unwilling to do without so long as the state of the weather and the Isolation of hor establishment enable her t enjoy them. There are certain clroum- l stances which mitigate tlio uneonveiitionallty the proceedings. Her home Is tho highest spot in tho region, and thero are no neighboring hills which command a view of the roof. The watchman in tlio lighthouse a few hun dred yards awuy is un old man who flndB all his time occupied by his duties. So this latest eccentricity of Mine. Bernhardt Is not so striking as it might bo at other places than her chateau. She gets tho benefit of sun and air and her roof is ns private ns her .boudoir. After the affeciations which have marked other stages of her career, the latest seems comparatively gentle. Her chief diversion at Bellelsle, apart from tho luxury of bathing on the roof, is found in hunting. All day she tramps over the country In hunting dress, and the disproportion between the number of shots she tires and the game she brings down has never been known to interfere with her enthusiasm at the chuso. The Ocean House at Newport was a land mark which survived many social changes at Newport. When fashion abandoned the ho tels it was given over to tourists who came to see Hie plooo and persons who stopped there for a few days' enjoyment of the town's at tractions, its guests were never of Newport's life, and later, when permanent summer guests again becumo n feature of the hotel, they were in no way identified with what is knowu as the summer life of the town. So far us they shared in that, tho hotel might have been situated In another town. They saw what there was of it that was visible on the Btreets. and that wiu, all The hotel later came to have lis regular summer guests, who parsed weeks there and went to Newport uuite us the might have gono to other summer re sorta, The presence of a foreign notability occasion u llv added lustre to the register, but It I was exclusively the foreigners who gave tho place th's distinction. Within the past few years the hotel had begun to got nearer the .-eat atmosphere of Newport life. Several fam ilies who were conspicuous in tho social life of Ni'wiort went there, and this proved enough to make the place regarded yvith more tolera tion than it had received In many years. The names of well-known people began to appear with greater frequency iimong its lists of nests and something like social regeneration might have come if the place hud not been destroyed by lire. Tho smaller and more expensive ho tels do not supply completely the demand for accommodations which exists now, and If Newiort gets n new hotel it is likely to enjoy the henollt of the vogue that was just return- I Ing to the hotol which it had deserted so posi tively years before, when the entire life of Newport went to the cottages and the mag iiillcciit homos built there in recent yeurd. Tho cable cars aro not alone responsible for anew allmcut whi.'h has lately made its ap pearance. A medical journal which has pub lished an nccount of the new ailment attrib utes It chiefly to tho trolley, although In both cases tho aotlvo participation of thu patient Is necessary. According to tho investigations of a physician, this new trouble consists of a fracture of one of the bones of the spine caused by striking the back of the sent In a street cnr. lie finds tliut moat pent ns rise in thoir seats before they have reached their destination or before the car has come to a full stop. In many cases they are thrown back on their seats when ibis happens or again.-. I the back of t lie scat, and this violent contact Is likely to break ono of the binall bones In the spine. Luckily the result is not nearly so sorlous us it sounds and Is much more likely to be Incon venient than dangerous. As the luvestlgu- I tlons which proved the existence of the new ailment were made In a Western town whero transportation was chiefly by means of the trolleyB, the sumo effects might not have been expected here. But the physlclnn found thut the trouble wus llkelv to be caused by any quickly moving vehicle quite independently of what the motor ikiwc r was. So persons suf fering from unexplained back aches may dis cover that they have stood up too soon while those who have so far escaped may tnko warn ing and keep their seats, in tho words of the conductor, until tho cur stops. Hello Archer Wants u Divorce. Bello Archer, the well-known versatile ac tress, Is seeking a divorce from her husband, Herbert K. Archor, an English actor. The pio ceedings have been instituted in tho New Jersey Court of Chancery by her attorneys. Fay uud Van Note. Chancellor Alcxnnder T. Mctiill has ordered notice ot the proceedings served by publication. The notice appeared in the last issuo ot a Buyonno. N. J., weekly newspa per. The defendant has until tho 21th day of October to file his answer to the plea. The grounds upon which the divorce is desired are abandonment, continued desertion, und non support. About four or five years ago Herbert Arciur was notified thut by the death of u rela tive he hud fallen heir to a legacy which would make him n wealthy man. He returned to Eng land to gain itossessioii of his Inheritance, but his wife did not accompany him The last heard of Archer by his former intimates m Hay. line was thut he had accepted from the llritlsh tlovcrnineut a position of some conse quence lu u British colony.

ONE MOKE OF OVR THEATRES OPENED FOR TttE WINTER SEASON. Two New Short Playa In Vaudeville, "An Ar tist's Dilemma" and "Bob Kaekett'i lnjamns " A Lena One for the Itowery, "A Factory Waif" Camlllo Crao's Violin. Tho Herald Square Thoatre was reopened last night It had the aspect of a now house. The former bright and rathor garish colorings of tho auditorium had givon way to darker and n-st hetie hues. New carpets and . upholstery imparted a further effect of ' richness. "The French Maid," last spring's musical larce on that stage, was performed again. The company was headed by Charles Blgelow, an auept in thoso eccontnclties which are deemed essential In that stylo of entertainment. Ills representation of a waiter, whoso obsequiousness hides wound ed pride and rancorous resentment, was quite as clover and amusing as before. Of course Its exaggeration carrlod It beyond characterization into oaricature. but. consider ing it from tho travesty point of view, it was well to accept it as fun without going into art particulars. While thero wus a manifest disposition to give additional I importance to Mr. Bigolow. that objoct was ' not at tuiiied through any appreciable bollttlo mout of others. The company retained some of Its former members, and, collootlvoly, was or efficient as before. The ballad of the stalwart sailor, sung by Hallen Mostyn. ' had a now pertinency since the war with Spain. Olive liedpath was the maid from Francs, and sho was loss French I than cosmopolitan In hor friskincss. but sho j danced nimbly and was diverting. Yolande Wallace was again the most notable wearer of , tights. The audience cr iwded the theatre, and was so extromoly enthusiastic that encores ex tended the entertainment until half past 11 o'clock. A ploy which had been written to order was "An Artist's Dilemma" at Tractor's yesterday afternoon. It was by Herbert Hall Winslow. 'or Mr. and Mrs. Charlos T. jSllis. The actor is a Oerman dialect comedian of the type which the lute Joseph K. Emmet originated. He looks like that onco Idolized comedian, and has a high tenor voice to yodel with. There fore tho author raado him an artist in a some what, picturesque garb, und gave him a child to slug to and caress right after the curtain went up. The actress is fat and jolly, with a comic face and a brogue at command. So for her was provided the part of a rough Irish i woman. These two personages were brought together in a studio, into which tho woman blundered instoad of a physician's office noxt door, and where tho artist was expect ing a Hawaiian princess to come and sit for a portrait. Thoir misunderstandings of each other were ludicrous enough to make the audience laugh satisfactorily. Mr. Winslow had devised some original talk, plain and simple enough to avoid all danger of puzzling tho ' meanest mind, while at the samo time clean and wholosome. Mrs. Ellis 6poke her share of it witli good, broad humor. Mr. Ellis was less clever with it, but he had sung himself into fair favor before that, and afterward he got an- , other chance lor bis pleasant voice lu a pa thetic ballad of the war, ubout a sailor .lad whose mothor mourned his death on tlio euuken Maine. That was the climax of the play, and while ho sang it Mrs. Ellis posed with several others in living pictures to lllus tra'e tho verses. How did the dramatist con trive to make that conclusion reasonable? Ho didnt havo to. Tho artist remarked that the proof of a new song of his had come from the printer, and he would examine ittto ilud the errors. Then he sung It very well, and the people heard nothing about any misprints in i it. but saw the solid wall open und shut for a series of unexplained tableaux. The phe nomenon did cot astonish Mr. Ellis at all. nnd tthy tinuld tho spectators marvel in their satis- tuu I. 'lit Camlllo I'rso's advent In continuous vaude ville occurred tit Keith's yesterday. In two showy selections she proved to variety show I followers that young womea who are very bright us to cheeks, yellow as to hair, and short as to skirt aud bodice are not the only ,iolin players. For some moments in tholopen ing number tho gods missed un air. She showed an artist's hand, but produced no tune that the hearers could tako away with them, and during that time somo of thorn were, no doubt, preparing to decide in favor of tho short-skirt sisterhood. But it wasn't long be fore even the blackcd-up "mokes" who fiddle tho newest "coon songs" were hopelessly out ol memory, uud when the melody was reached and was almost as long as the technically line introduction the gallery folks broke lu be fore It was finished nnd applauded vigorously. They treated the second selection in the same manner, and. us there was not u measure of it nil that they could recall to whistle, it was a line compliment to the player. In the sume bill Harry Lacy, he who was for several years handsomely heroic In "The Still Alarm, en tered local vaudeville, playing a short new farce entitled "Bob Hackcit's 1'njamas " The garments of tho title were in sight during half the play and a woman s night rig was ulso in evidence. At one time it looked as if the actor was to disrobe publicly. His shoes eumo off, his collar followed suit, aud then he with drew, leaving the pajamas to Ida Van Stolen. She swapped a tailor town for them, but I while the made the ehnngo tho actor held tho stage, swinging Indian clubs nnd echoing hor laughter over Tier difficulties with the unfa miliar garments. In tliein. she wus mistaken I by their owner for a man and bidden to take them off. At the point where 'ho owner was to uso force in recovering his property she confessed her sex. He immediately hid with his jacket the nnderllnnnel that covered the ton half of him and the affair changed from wild farce to sentiment. As tho curtain fell a elcrgwnnn was coming upstairs on the jump to make the two one. because If thev sere not married in seven minutes they'd lose a JlUU.- 000 legaoy. The author of this rather re- , marknble dramatic proposition was not named. It was laughable lo those who gave no 1 bought to its lack of plausibility, aud buoh seemed in a good majority. Labor agitators wero potent in " The Factory Waif," tho now melodrama disclosod last night at the People's. During four acts and eloven scenes tho mischief coming from theopitosltinn of gra-ping employers and stubborn workmen was dominant. This though tho play com menced with so happy a picture as tho presen tation of a watch by the mlllhauds to the wide browed foreman. He was ono of them, to ap parent danger to mill discipline at times, but ever to the pleasure of the gallery. He was one of a committee of strikers who waited upon their employer with an ulti matum 1 ho wus about to patent un invention that was to make his everlu-ting fortune, and ' whose completed drawings be left about, with tracing papor handy, and he was tho suitor for a young woman to whom a rascally mill owner extended attentions that were for a time more acceptable than his own lie was also nearly convicted of a murder that borne ono else wus seen to do. and in all these matters he wus neither newly oppressed nor unconven tionally n loser. In ono scene ho bat tled with a conflagration In a mill that hud been tired by Its owner. These , were new circumstances, hut his efforts were ' unavailing und the mill burned to the ground. The Hie liud liecu siui ted In a shod, anil while the clacks in doors und window casings dis closed the flames within the chap who set tlio lire Btopped 10 talk the mutter over. When he finally concluded that a thing not to do after setting u factory nllru was to watch it hum. the hero dashed lu with an axe. Hie raps nut doors ujar.and there woioburstaot lluiuouml showers 1 of stmrks almost as brilllaiitus those that in tlie 1 Bowery were welcoming returning pickulck eri. A barrel of gasoline were the dramatist's explosive, and there were a fine bung and scatter to it. The audience howled ovei 11 111 approval, and it also warmed to specialties 1I0110 I by Homo of the players. The villain, though u capable actor, was more laughed nt than ' hissed, a iKiuit thut marks a change in Bowery 1 treatment of melodrama's plotters. His com panions were a capable lot. the hero, an elderly workman, several miilhunds and u niinoi vil lain being belter players thou are usual in such pieces. Newport Social Doings. Newtobt. It. I..

Hester street, possesses a beard that gives him a pa triarchal appearance. His whiskers and his loud declarations of innocence onnsed tho heart of Maglstrato.Mott to soften yesterday In Essex Market Court when Slopsky was arraigned be fore him on a charge of disorderly conduct. Slopsky's head was swathed with bandages, aud for at least once in the history of that court a good reason existed for the bandnges. Slopsky's troubles were mainly due to tho fAct that ho has acquired a taste for the whis key of the oast side saloons, where ardent spirits nre retailed ut the low price of it cents por glass. Slopsky. while peddling fruit from a pushcart yesterday, becamo thirsty and weut to tho saloon or Patrick Coleman at 3H5 Cherry Btreet for a drink. Coleman Is so proud of his nationality that he onus his saloon "Tho Harp." Slopsky laid three cents on tho bar. "I vant some vhlskey." he sold In his usual apologetic. scIf-efTaelng way. "You do?" ejaculated Coleman, sarcasti cally. "So much a that all to wnnst? Shure, Ol fought thot yez worgoln' t' boy wan dhrlnk whin yez kem in, an' here yez ure ordherlng ut wholesale. Git t'ell outer here." With this Coleman threw tho three pennies through the open door Into the street. With a wall of anguish Slopsky rati after his money, mid arrived nt the sidewalk just In time to eoo the small son of Mrs. lloro who keeps a newsstand on the corner, gat lioiing in the cents. Slopsky seized him and tried to take the money away from him. Tho hoy yelled and his mother, not knowing the true circumstances, imagined that Slopsky was trying to rob her sou. She took a heavy club that she had under her newsstand and fell upon Slopsky. "lez dliirty. be-whishkered thafe at the worruld!" sho shouted. "Olil taehe yez to bo robbin' a poor lad nv his ha-ard-urued pin nies I Tako that an' thut au' thatl" The "t huts'' were liberal welts over the bend with her club. Slopsky run Into the saloon and begged Coleman to protect him. Colo man put him out of the place, and Mrs. Qore descouded upon him again. A crowd gath ered und cheered her. and this woke up a policeman In the neighborhood, who aame up on a ruu und gruffly demanded what caused the trouble. Mrs. Gore and Slopsky both talked ut once, and as the cop was Irish he naturally sitled with Mrs. Gore, and Slopsky was arrested. When his Innocent looks, great gesticula tions and vehement and voluble speech caused Magistrate Mott to dlsehurue him. Slopsky turned and started to hurry out of court, but Mrs. Uoro Intercepted him. "Hero's your dliirty free clnts that mado this shindy." said she. "No wan kin say tho Widdy Ooro lver kipt wan cint sho hadn't kem honest by." Slopsky seized the money and hurried from the court without vouchsafing a word of thanks. MAIL WAOON DRIVER BILLED.
