HE'S KAISER'S SON, CHICAGO MAN SAYS Carl Coler Declares He Is Un lawful Offspring of Em peror William I. Income Cut Off, He Demands that Germany's Ruler Pro vide for Him. Special to The Journal. Chicago, Nov. 10.Claims of a man, now a resident of Chicago, who makes the amazing assertion that he is the disinherited son of Emperor William I of Germany, grandfather of the present kaiser, have been laid before Herr von Wever, the imperial German consul, in the form of an affidavit. Consul von Wever forwarded today to his imperial master the report of the Chicagoan's representations, tho he makes light of them officially. The "pretender" is Carl Coler, who lives at 613 North Clark street. He declares that Emperor Wilhelm must recognize and provide for him as befits royalty. Of Distinguished Appearance. Coler is 58 years old, of distinguished appearance and polished manners. In Betting forth his claims he points to his remarkable resemblance in features and mannerisms, to the entire Hohen aollern family. Coler says that he has been cast off by his three brothers, all men of the highest note in his native country, af ter he had consented to exile himself in order that the scandal, which he al leges is linked with his parentage, might be hid and the name of a king be shielded. Coler. who says he was born in Ber lin Sept. 30, 1848, says his mother was Julia Coler, wife of Carl Coler, imperial ambassador at large for making postal treaties. During one of the ambassa dor's numerous absences abroad, Kaiser Wilhelm I became enamored of Mrs. Coler and induced^er to become a lady in waiting at the imperial court. Coler died, he says, when the claimant was 3 years old. Had Hint of Scandal. After his mother's death, Carl de clares, he learned the secret of his par entage. When he talked of the matter to his half-brothers they became en raged and compelled him to leave the country. He yielded and came to Chi cago in 1885. Since then, he has lived here and received regulaily a liberal maintenance from his half-brothers. This has been stopped, and Coler de cided to make public his jparentage and the proof before Kaiser Wilhelm. Tho Consul von Wever denies that the matter had ever been presented to him before, it was evident that some hint of the coming scandal had reached the German consul in advance. Coler avers that his parentage is generally known at the German court, and that Emperor Wilhelm will not dare to dispute his allegations. November 17th tsemmc/xwrx map? COMES FOR A DIVORCE? tSSZ***^ DUCHESS OP MARLBOROUGH, Formerly Consuelo Vanderbllt, Who, It Is Reported, Will Seek a Secret Di vorce in America. DUCHESS MAY SEEK DIVORCE IN AMERICA Secret Separation from Duke of Marlborough May Be Wife's Object. Journal Special Service. London, Nov. 10.The possibility of conducting divorce proceedings in se cret in the courts of New York may take the Marlborough divorce case to the former home of the duchess, who was Consuelo Vanderbilt. It is de clared that this means of escaping the Sublicity which is attending Anna ould's efforts to rid herself of her titled husband in France has been con sidered seriously by the duchess. The duke is prepared to drive a hard bargain in a bill of separation. He is holding out against the duchess' de mand for the custody of the children, conditions which, if accepted, would be equivalent to admission on the part of the duchess that she was the wrong. Confronted by these terms, the ducjiess of Marlborough has taken no legal steps to regain possession of her chil dren. Her inactivity in this direction has afforded excuse for much gossip and Justification by the dnke's friends" of his lofty attitude of injured innocence. The duke is letting it be known that he is exhausting every means at his command to obtain an absolute divorce to vindicate himself, but under the English law he can obtain no relief, tho he prove his case, if his wife can establish faults on his part.

Marks Further Recognition of City as Linseed Oil Center. The Spencer Kellogg company of Buffalo, N. Y., the largest independent linseed oil manufacturers in the world, will build a mill in Minneapolis. Thirty six presses, which means an important capacity, have already been ordered for the Minneapolis mill, and more will probably be added eventually. The location of the new plant is not defin itely known, but it will probably be somewhere near the present center of the industry in Southeast Minneapolis. The coming in of the Spencer Kel logg company not only means much for Minneapolis industrially, but it marks the most important development for several years in the linseed oil trade. The recognition by this strong company of the importance of Minneapolis is highly significant. For years it has owned large eastern mills, and will shortly have in operation 186 presses, making it tower above any other com pany capacity, except only the Amer ican Linseed Oil company, or so-called "trust." It is said that twenty-four presses will be installed here immediately. To irovide accommodation for these and machinery for necessary flaxseed storage capacity, will require the erec tion of buildings of considerable size. Definite arrangements bearing upon thpse points have not yet been made. The# rise of Minneapolis into first Slace in the world as a linseed oil pro ucer is one of the wonders of indus trial change and development in the west. Tho flaxseed had long been crushed here, the growth of the indus try really dates from the entry of E. C. Warner, George F. Piper and W. D. Douglas, who, about six years ago, built the big Midland mill. Others fol lowed. Minneapolis today has five active plants. The American Linseed Oil com pany operates one mill of forty fires3es and has another, the Archer mill, of sixteen presses, not always active. The Midland operates ^ixty-f our presses, the Archer-Daniels mill, which has iust been enlarged, has fifty-six, the Minnesota Linseed Oil company has twelve, and the Northern Linseed Oil company ten. Every year '8,000$00 bushels of flax seed go into the crushers and 400,000 barrels of oil and 152,000 tons of oil cake are produced. The business runs to great figures annually, represents large invseted capital and operates for the material welfare of the city. Jackson, La., Nov. 10.Every member of the faculty of Centenary college here, except Pro fessor Moncrief, has resigned as a consequence of the recent stabbing* of Rev Dr Miller by Moncrief Two days ago the entire student body left the college for their home on account of the retention of Professor Moncrief. Centen ary college is a Methodist institution. PURITY FOOTBALL. 8 w4 *.%&. SATURDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 10, 1906. Bulletins from Field By O'Loughlln. Marshall Field* Chicago, Nov. 10. The big football game of the west for 1906 is. being played on a heavy field. The ram has been increasing since 10 a.m. and pools of water are filling the planking of the seats. Early toda^ there appears to have been a grand rally of helpers on the field, as it wasu covered with straw from the south goaf to the 15-yard line on the north, wfcen the team entered the field. Large sheets of canvas covered the straw va. the center of the field, but it is not known when it was put out. Slippery Ball Dangerous. The gridiron, as near as can be seen, appears to have a good stand of turf, as* good as that of Northrop field. It can stand a lot of wetting, altho at this hour it is assured that a slippery ball will make the fast passes possible under the new rules almost an impos sibility. The crowd is not coming very fast into the stands, but the standing-room division is filling up rapidly. The Chi cago ushers are giving their "go Chi cago yell" to keep warm. Bain Cuts Attendance. The rain will, it is estimated cut the attendance by at least 8,000. There has been a total ticket sale of more than 16,000, but many of these seatholders are hardly expected to brave the disa greeable weather. The rain is slacking a trifle and a cool breeze from the north is gaining a little strength. Minnesota's rooters are arriving. "They are standing up. They don't dare to hit down as none thought to wear his cravenete trousers. The rain is increasing again and the standing room gallery isassuming the proportions and appearance of a mush room bed of ombrella size. Tie Dope Is Upset. It, looks as tho still greater uncer tainly as to the outcome of the game has been introduced by the rain. Chicago professes to believe that this will help Minnesota, but the gophers have been squeezing a dry gridiron as well as the maroons. The gopher attack might have been a great surprise to the Chicago root ers who were evidently expecting Dr. Williams' menJjfco,Jplay nothing but straight footbafr^Dr. Wipams says a wet fielo. w5il hfort Minnesota just as bad as Chicago. Minnesota's Band Conies. Laborers have just started to clear off the straw. The rain has obliterated all yard marks. Volunteers are pour ing over the fences and a Sandow might find inspiration for a bombardy harvest. Others are encouraging the laborers. The crowd is fairly pouring in now. The Minnesota band has just entered the grounds and is marching to their place in front of the west stand. Every gate is admitting a stream of football rooters, as. none others would leave their fireside on an afternoon like this. The wort of clearing the field is progressing rapidly. Band Parades Field. The Minnesota band is now parading the gridiron with considerable enthu siastic cheering, and faint-hearted boom ing of the wet bassdrum. The gates are still admitting a steady stream of umbrella-carrying rooters. Coach Stagg Arrives. Professor Stagg has appeared and clad in a heavy mackintosh and leg gins is directing th eremoval of the straw from the gridiron. The Chicago band is appearing on the Commons and tive sections. gridiron. Chicago is giving them a tremendous reception. More and more people. It begins to look as tho after all the stands will be completely filled. There is little attention being paid to seating the people in their respec spective sections. Newspaper Raincoats. Both bands arc now parading the gridiron and the enthusiasm has awak ened for the first time today. The Minnesota rooters in the middle have just arrived in a group. They have improvised cravenettes. They are tearing slits in newspapers poking their heads thru the slits and making the paper act as an army rubber blanket. Teams Await Call. Both teams are in the gymnasium and are waiting to be called. Little work remains to clear the field, altho the gridiron is nothing more than a stretch of green sward, the rain hav ing removed all traces of the lines, and it will be impracticable to mark it at this time. Long John Cinclair and the Chicago rooter team each bareheaded, but muf fled in a big sweater are leading their respective organizations in a series of yelt calls campaign. Playing "Hot Time." Minnesota's bandmen are standing out in the rain and manfully playing "There Will Be a Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight"there will be for somebody. Chicago's band is now grouped on the side lines and playing their famous Go-Chicago" song which the maroon rooters are giving lustily. Minnesota is coming on the field Ittner, Vita, Weist, Stafford, Smith, Case, Marshall, Larkin, Doane, Schuk nect, Current. They are now going thru a light sig nal practice going straight down the field merely having the oall, but not giving any formations. Gophers Win Toss. The stands look now to be completely filled, altho the umbrellas take up con siderable space. The teams are now on the field* Minnesota won the toss. Minnesota chose to receive the kick off, defending the south goal. Parry kicked off at 2:11 p,m., sending the ball to Minnesota on her 10-yard line and it was run back to the 23-yard line. Time out, Minnesota man hurt. THE GOPHERS' TRAINER DR. H. L. WILLIAMS. Coach of the Minnesota Team. GOPHERS IN FINE TRIM, DECLARES DR. WILLIAMS S Gophers Strength Augmente As Drizzling Rain Sets In $ By H. L. Williams, Minnesota's Coach. I am not claiming a victory for Minnesota, but neither am I con ceding anything to Chicago. We are in condition to put up a hard game against a great team, and nobody can say what the result will be. Every man on the Minnesota eleven is in his best physical trim, and I think the gophers will do all that is expected of them. I know that in Eckersall and Steffen Chi cago has two of the most dangerous men on the gridiron, and our de fense will have plenty of work in stopping them. I hope for a dry, fast field. $ By O'Loughlln. Chicago Beach Hotel, Nov. 10. "The day of the game" dawned with a heavy fog hanging over the lake and South Chicago, but with the weath er bureau predicting fair and cooler weather for the afternoon. There was little breeze, and if the battle of this afternoon develops into a kicking con test, there will not be anything save the rush of the opponents to worry the kickers. Chicago is changing sentiment re garding the game. Yesterday there was a general air of confidence over the result. Last night, the sporting fraternity from down-town invaded the hotels and talked loudly of betting with odds of 10-8 on Chicago. They found few takers, as the rooter delegation had hardly started to sell to their ordi nary strength. Yesterday all of the talk was to the effect that the Minnesota giants, as they term them, would be slow, and there was much gossip as to how Messrs. Eckersall and Steffens would circle the ends and make monkeys of the "giants of the north." Stagg Admits Fear. There was a constant stream of cu rious rooters thru the hotel yesterday to look over the team and in some way or other there has come a change as to the idea of Minnesota's speed. Another thing which has gone to knock some of the cocksureness out of Chicago was Professor Stagg's frank admission at last night's banquet that he knew Harry Williams, knew his ability as a football strategist and coach, and was afraid of him. As the teams come out for the fray Chicago admits that it is going to be a mighty close game, and some of the newspaper forecasts are that Chicago will win, of course, but a very scant margin. Williams Baffles Dopists. The gopher coach has been the de spair of the Chicago reporters. He has declined to forecast victory for his men. He has held oack the weights and refused to tell anything about his line-up. This has caused them no small discomfort, but they have not permit ted any lack of information from pre venting them from printing "facts about the game." Downtown, in the loop section, Minr nesota has owned the earth. The bulk of the gopher rooters who arrived yes terday morning stopped down in the city and there was a continual pour ing in of them all afternoon and l$st night. The "avalanche came this morning. r-^ i Maroon and Gold Everywhere.

Chicago does not like it, figuring that a heavy field would slow up the Chicago attack and give the gophers the edge. There is no sign of a let-up to the rain, but, on the contrary, it looks as tho it might grow heavier. LOOKS LIKE TOSSUP, IS STAGG'S OPINION By A. A. Stagg, Chicago's Coach. I still think it is an even chance. I am banking on our speed, our cleverness, our quick charging, and, most of all, on Eckersall, to beat out the weight and strength of Minnesota. Williams has a team that is in every way a great bunch, This is the big game of the season. I still believe that the new rules favor us. Under the old rules Minnesota would have had a big advantage because of their beef, but under the new code, we ought to be able to overcome this handi cap by our speed. It looks like a tossup. N nesota, people. It looks as tho the"f Chamber of Commerce and Minneapolis x. clubs are deserted or transferred to*& Chicago. The maroon and gold is to be seen everywhere from the modest rosette of the alumnus to the two-yard streamer of the freshmen, and they are still coming.

The great hall was packed' to the doors with students. As the gophers entered the Chicagoans stood and cheered vociferously. They gave their own yells and those of Minnesota. On an elevation at the end of the bfjr hall the tables of honor had beeft At the central table were oache Stagg and Williams, Professor James Paige of Minnesota, Dean Hall and Dr. Clapp of Chicago, Professor H. P. Nachtreib of Minnesota, John Glea son, president of the Minnesota board of athletic control and Captains Cur rent and Eckersall. The teams were placed at either side, the players mix ing up at the two tables in sociable fashion. Minnesota, Yale, Chicago and Chicago alumni were at other tables. It was a noisy banquet. Minnesota alumni mixed their signals on trying manfully at the Chicago veils and Chi cago alumni and students had an equal ly hard time at twisting their tongues aboilt the Ski-U-Mah message. Every sentiment expressed or course served was accompanied by this vocal inter change of courtesies. A Battle of Bouquets. 4 The speechmaking, led by Professor Stagg, was a period of felicitation in which the brotherhood of man in gener al ,and football players in particular predominated. Bouquets of subtle per fume and others with the flavor of, the broader sentiment were handed back and forth between the leaders. Speeches were made by Professor James Paige, Dr. H. S.

Each division assured the other that honorable victory was the one consideration, but that if defeat must come the vanquished could not by any means choose a better or more highly respected victor. The ethical side of intercollegiate athletics was touched upon and each new sentiment called forth a fxoih round, of ,cheen.
