'..it tho prospects of facing the allena
'ion suit and last summer's scandal
"light have cnnie up for discussion be
tween Mr. and Mrs. Fdoy and have re
sulted In a quarrel followed by murder
snd suicide.
Tho maids said they knew of no
nuarrcls between the man and his wife
ilnco their return. There was no evi
dence of a quarrel. No one seems to
have heard the shots.
For the family Charles Edey made
iNs statement:
"Wo cannot account for this tragedy.
Tho separation between my brother nnd
air. wifn began early In August nnd
lasted three weeks. During this time
Mrs. Fdoy was constantly In the caro
of hir aunt or sister, Mrs. Talmage,
ho lives In the KUlnorc apartments
n I In rlt.ni. About September 1 they
called for tho West Indies, visiting Porto
Wco and other places. Any friction
which may have existed prior to that
Mine had passed away. They were
happy when they returned. It seemed
hat their becond honeymoon had be
gun. My brother came to my office tho
diy beloro Christmas. He never was
n better spirits and I thought It was
.o'litisn of his happy homo life, Jf t
s true, aa 1 am told, that Mi. Mur
dock has brought suit ugalnst my
brother for the alienation of his wife's
'.lection, this may explain tho awful
; .ippenlng. The suit Is news to mc.
Mich u suit, while it would not stand
in law, I am sure, may have preyed
ipm my brother's mind, and the.
'.lought that nil tho scandal would
l avo to bo reopened Just when ho
thought all his troubles were past mny
have prompted tho deed. I do not think
the shooting wus donn In anger. This
is a bolt from a clear sky. All wan
happy here, where now all Is dark."
Charles Kdey spoku of his little niece
sad bald sho would be well cared for.
The Inquest will bo continued on Sat
in day afternoon. Mrs. Murdock will 1
willed to tell ubout the alienation suit.
Jt was denied that any lettnrs or papers
"were found In tho houso relating to
the action. Tho two bodies, It Is under

for burial.
On the afternoon of August l nurd.

Vikkxa, Jan. 2. Two prominent Hun-t
garlan politicians, Hcrr Tlszn, president'
of tho lower House, nnd Count Michael,
Karolyl, a member of the Opposition,'
fought a duel with sabres to-day. Count
Karolyl was severely wounded.
The duel was the outcome of Presl-,
dent Tisza's stern repression of the re
cent disorders In the Hungarian Parlia
ment In which Count Karolyl was con
spicuous. On New Year's day, whllo entering
tho National Club at Hudapost, Tlsza
met Count Karolyl and offered him his
hand. The latter tefused to uccept It
and ostentatiously put his hands into j
his pocKets. no sain mat ancr vvnai
had huppened In Parliament It would
bo useless for him tn pretend to bo a
friend of Herr Tlsza, The latter re
garded this as an Insult and Issued a
challenge to a thiol. The conditions
were that- the men should fight unlll
one or the other was disabled. Tho
weapons named were cavalry sabres
Instead of the usual rapiers.
Heir Tiszii, who Is unusually agilo
for a man of his age, had thu better of
the argument throughout for tho reason
that Count Karolyl Is big and heavy.
The contest was to have lasted for
forty-one bouts and occupied one hour.
Count Karolyl received several cuts and
Just ns the thirty-second bout was
started ho was so severely slashed and
disabled fhut tho doctors stopped tho
encounter and llle coinbatunts, who had
not been reconciled, were carried away,
Tho victory is expected to Incredso
the prcstlgo of Herr Tlsza.

cry little is known ol Mr. Keene'b
familv. He always avoided tliu sulj-
ip,., " i.-or manv T',.ars t WHs not known
if Mr. Keeno cared to speak of thn matter.
Some stories Rot around that ho had been
born in London; there) worn still other
reports to the effect that he had been
born in Lynchburg, Vn. In n burst of
confidence ono night late at Delmonico'b
he said;
"I was born in Chester, right near
Liverpool, England, if you want to know."
Mr. Keono said that he was born in the
year 1K3H, but ho gave no dato. He said
his father was an Irish gentleman who
gavo him a fair education. Some reports
hnve said that Mr. Keono's father was a
small London shopkeeper nnd had failed
in business when James ltobert Keono
was u youngster of 13; that the
Keencs, lather and son, then carno to
Lynchburg, Vn., and from there, in 1852,
Ixjgan their wanderings toward Cali
fornia and that they settled for a bhort
tlmo in Whiskeytown. u mining camp
In Shasta county. All is hazy about
Mr. Keeno's father.
After Jiimc It. Keene got started in
San Fiancisco Mr. Kcene tho elder re
turned to Kuropo and ued to visit Pau
and other fashionable spots on the Con
tinent and finally died in Paris. James
Holiort Keene, Ills eldest son, always saw
to it that tho father was woll taken caro of.
Mr. Keene was an unhappy man. He
wah tired of Wall Street, tired of lho turf
tired of sporting men, tired of his triumphs
and ilorcats in nil street ami on tlm turf;
ho was tired of nil topics and all men.
In his closing days ho only desired, to ho
let alone. Ho wa a chrotilu sufferer
from dyspepsia, which dopresned his
naturally nervous temperament unci mudo
life a burden, Undoubtedly ho was
happiest when ho sal by himself in his
Ilroad street utllco and watched th0 fluc
tuations In stocks with tho cool, intense
Interest with which an experienced gam
bler note's tho run of tho cards. To his
chronic dyspepsia, perhaps, was due hit
very repellent, munnor in personal Inter
course, which inado It difficult for any
one not very well acquainted to approach
him familiarly.

doing whnt t want as Governor unlet
I am thn Democratic loader. If any
Democrat challenges this leadership let
him come out In the open. The people,
will decide."
This declaration from Gov. Sulzer waS
prompted by nn Inquiry ns to what h
would do If his proposed Investigation
of Slate departments Involved any ot
the appointees of Charles F. Murphy.
"I have been waiting for that ques
tion," said the Governor, "and T might
as well answer it now nnd for all time."
Gov. Sulzer said that he would treat
nil men alike while he vva.s Governor.
"l.et J. lierpniit Morgan, Thomns P.

Guv. Sulzer made, It plain that he Is no

glanced over lho throng of legislators,
politicians and office seekers who
crowded tho big I3xecutlvo Chamber
at noon as It ha-s never been

by tlto crowd. He seemed to delight
In tho situation. He passed from one
group of callers to another ns they
stood seatored about tho room and
suenicd perfectly nt ease.
One applicant for thn Job of Public.
Service Commissioner pushed his way
through tho groups and made a de
mand upon Gov. Sulzer for a place on
the commission. The Governor told
him he need not hope for the place ho
was seeking, at which tho applicant
asked: "Who have you In mind for
these omces'.'"
"You may rest assured," said the
Governor frankly, "that you are not one
.of them."
