When the Chicago Daily Tribune
takes it upon itself to call a man a
fake and pretender and when this
man claims to be a cousin to the
crowned heads of England, Spain
and Austria, trouble is liable to re
sult So when the Trib in its column
headed "La Marquise De Fontenoy,"
printed for highbrows with a taste
for royal scandal, called Rudolph
Francois Ghislain Hamilton De Lan
da Berghes St Wincok a pretender
he sued them for $50,000.
The story was printed just a year
ago yesterday. "La Marquise" said
that Rudolph had just come to this
country and was posing as the cou
sin of the reigning heads of England,
Austria and Spain, while he was
merely a pretender.
"La Marquise" then went on to
throw mud on the claims of Rudolph
as a bishop of the Old Catholic
church of Scotland. In fact, "La

De Fontenoy" dope all over the
country and that his social standing
would be hurt considerably.
So he asked Att'y Frederick Silber
of Chicago to sue the Tribune for
$50,000 and had other attorneys in
the east file similar actions against
other papers which printed the same
. Att'y Silber says he has started an
investigation of the swell "La Mar
quise" and says he found that "La
Marquise" stuff is written by a man
named Phillip C. Owen. And a mar
quise is supposed to be a female per
son. Silber says that the Tribune will go
easy hereafter when its articles hit
