I
By Inlveinal Service.*
Paris. July 11.?Eugenie, widow
of Napoleon III, and last Empress of
France, died at her home in Spain
today.
When Marie Eugenie Ignace Augustine
de Montijo, daughter of a
Spanish count, was a little girl a
gypsy fortune teller told her she
would some day occupy a throne and
live to be 94.
For eighteen years the "beautiful
Spaniard," as she was known In her
prime, was Empress of "ranee, and
during .most of that period her
whim ruled not only her own coun
try but directed the destinies of Europe.
For a time, while Napoleon III
was ill, she was regent.
The gypsy's second prophesy came
true also. Eugenie was 94 years
old- May last.
For the people of France she has
been for raore than half a century
(he living embodiment of historic
days?the glory of the empire, its
fall, the revolution that gave birth
to the republic after the ignominy
cf defeat at the hands of Prussia,
forty marvelous years of amazingly
rwift reconstruction, then the great
war with its four years of defeat
nnd suffering and near debacle, and
finally the day of revenge.
It was for tiiat day that the
"shadow empress" had been clinging
to life with an heroic obstinacy
and will power since July 23, 1914,
the day Austria sent her ultimatum
to Sorbin. First from her home in
Spain, then from her magnificent
Elizabethan mansion at Faruborouch
mil. she watched the titanic
conflict with a hopeful fervor, the
very intensity of which kept the
flame of life aflicker In the frail
physical shell of her former self.
It is recounted that when they
hroueht her the news, on November
11. 1918. of Germany's unconditional
signature of the armistice terms
and again last year, word of her
signing on the "dotted line" at Versailles?the
very Versailles where
forty-eight years before Bismarck
dictated peace with a "pistol at his
victim s head" the venerable ex-arbiter
of Europe's fate broke down
and wept like a child, wept tears of
joy. Her death occurred two days

already have stirred up
miniature tempests that are making

The first Is a statement -made by

the bitterness of the Irish was not
"a bitterness against the Democratic
party, but directed against t

The second was an innocuous I

Responsive Chord in
Attack of Greed".
By FRANK GARDINER.
(Lalreml Service Staff Correspondent.)
Chicago, July 11. ? Substantial
rogress toward the amalgamation
f various political groups gathered
I Chicago into one new national potical
party was made today.
The day's activities centered
round the national convention of
he Labor party of the United States,
eretofore known as the American
abor party which opened its sesions
at Carmen's Hall.
The spirit of union with other poitical
movements prevailed in the
onvention hall, where 700 delegates,
epresenting organized labor, gathred
determined that a miitant, proressive
third party must be born.
As the preliminary work of organting
the labor convention went on
he talk of getting all political
roups represented In Chicago together
on a common ground grew
tronger. Joint conferences were
eld tonight.
S"J? W?r Is on Greed.
John Fitzpatrick, president of
Chicago Federation of Labor, temporary
chairman of the labor conention
and chief keynoter, brought
he delegates to their feet In a noisy
emonstration when he declared:
"When you get down to the bar*
act, all of these different political
nits gathered here have th? same
rogram. If we are no farther apart
han this, isn't it right that we
hould arrive at a place where we
II shall hold the same views and
an unite on a common ground so
hat we can take the reins of govrnment
out of the hands of the
nternational bankers The control
f the nation has gone beyond Wall
treet?It is now international. It iff
control of avarice, greed and gold
gainst the women ar.d children of
he nation."
developments of the last twentyaur
hours indicate that the chances
f an amalgamation of the I^abor
arty of the United States, the Coinlittee
of Forty-eight and the Nonartisan
League are favorable.
Other Mensrer Move*.
Moves are also being made to
erfect a union with the ^ American
'onstitutiona! party, representea
iere by its national executive committee,
the Single Tax party, which
lso is holdinr its national convenion
in Chicago, and other minor
rroups.
A definite move toward a merger
raa made in the I^bor party's conention
when Robert M. Buck, of

-abor party, introduced a resolution,
iroposing that the name of the party
>e changed to the Farmer-Labor
larty of the United States and that

in the convention. This
esolution authorized the confernce
committee to continue its nerotiations
with other political
rroups. The resolution was reerred
