A cable dis patch to Theodore P. Shonts tills morning announces the sudden death In Paris of his son-in-law, the Due do Chaulnes. The Due and Miss The odora Shonts were married in this city last January and were In Kurope on their wedding trip. The marriage of the Hue de Chaul nes and Miss Shonts was the culmina tion of a long sb-ge by the young no bleman for the hand of tho daughter of the former Panama canal commis sioner. Her father oppoKed the match but with the aid of her mother the due came to tho United States and met Mr. Shonts. He made such a good Impression that the father' ob jection to the match was withdrawn and the wedding took place in this city last January, attended by promi nent members of the French society and members of New York and Wash ington society. Immediately following the wedding the couple sailed for Paris to spend the honeymoon and expected to re turn to the United States in tile fall to make New- York their future home. The young due expected to enter business in this city end -would have had the backing his wealthy father-in-law could have given him. Although somewhat financially em lKirrassed tho due bore a much more savory reputation than the usual run of foreigners seeking to marry Amer ican heiresses, and his determination to entet business In this country added an unusual Interest to this interna tional marriage.

Twenty-two automobiles of the finest Am erican and foreign types, started at dawn today for a 239 mile race over one of the must hazardous courses ever chosen for a motor car speed contest. For a little over 32 mil the course winds through the picturesque coun try of Northern Westchester county. About every turn of the course Is a dangerous spot and there are many predictions of accidents. The danger of the course added tremendously to the Interest and as early as three this morning It is estimated that not less than 1 1,000 automobiles were packed along the course.

Important evidence bearing on the allegations of the Mate of Kansas that the Traders' livestock exchange in Kansas City Is operated in violation of the anti-trust laws, was brought out in an Investiga lion here bust night, when Murdo Mc Kenzle. a witness from Trinidad, Colo., r fused to tell A. L. Herger, at torney, tile name of the commission man who, the witness said, had told him the Kansas City market was not open to country buyers. Tho attor ney threatened to send for an officer and there was a long wrangle. Finally the witness said It was Fllo Harris who told him.

JAPANESE SEND TO IMPRESS THE i CHINESE Fifteen Ships WI Co on Os tensibly Friendly Visit but In Reality to ".Show" Them. JAPS WOULD CHECK ANOTHER BOYCOTT Shanghai. April 24. A Japanese squadron, including the most power ful battleships, five armored cruisers und several destroyers, in all fifteen hips, will proceed to southern Chi nese waters, visiting Foo Chow, Amoy and Canton, ostensibly for a friendly visit, but, it is believed, in reality to Impress the Chinese and check an other JaiKiiicse boycott. Tile publication of the Japanese re ply to the American allegations reiu tive to the Mukden outrage inspires Peking and Shanghai with wonder ment at the hardihood of the Japan ese belief in western gullibility. The climax of audacity Is unofileial statements through Inspired Japanese nevvsp-aper dispatches that American Consul W. I). Straight is a drunken brawler, w ho previously disllliglllsm d himself by threuteiilng peaceful Jap anese with a pistol and assaulted an Innocent Japanese postman mud his friends who resented the insults of fered to his servants. The consul, ac cording to the Japanese view, is de serving of blame for not instructing his servants mat the postman was al lowed to enter by the private gale of the consul-ate. The Japanese, denying anything like an attack on thu Ameri can consulate, allege that the consul attacked and injured a Japanese on lhat occasion. The truth is tnat the incident is the culmination of Japanese anti-western feeling. Japanese Consul (icncral Kato, who inspired the reply, is the same individual whose conduct at Chemulpo toward the Kussian offi cials end residents at tin- outbreak of tin- I tussii-Japanese war was bar barous and brutal, encouraging Ja pan's cowardly att.uk upon two Kus sian war ships with a squadron of fourteen.

OFFICERS FEAR" GOVERNMENT SUIT Prosecution Will be Taken Up Next Month In New York-Trust Is Controlled by Ryan and Monopolizes the Tobacco Business. Washington, D. C, April 24. In spite of the denial made by officers of the tobacco trust the report still per sists here that the trust will dissolve rather than fjee the government suit, which is set for May 19, before the United States circuit court in New York. One of tho attorneys of the trust says that several subsidiary com panies will reorganize under the title of the Federal Cigar company with W. S. I.uckett of New York, now head of the Whltlock branches of the trust as president. It is believed that the whole Amer ican Cigar company, the American or United Cigar Stores company, the American Cigar Stands company, the American Snuff company, the Atrteri can Licorice company, together with the many underlying and subsidiary companies composing the American Tobacco company, will undergo the same process as that of the three ma-chine-nuide cigar plants, and that a number of supposedly independent companies, controlling the tobacco and paper cigarette, boxes, licorice, Kussian and Turkish cigarette, loaf, export and other companies, will all be reorganized under luparuto heads. All this, It is said, is to be completed before Congress adjourns. J. C. McHeynolds, one of the gov ernment's, special assistants In. the prosecution of the tobacco trust un der the Sherman law, announced that be had not heard of the proposed dis solution of the combine. Such a step would be possible, he said, und might be agreed on without his know-ledge. He would not say what effect a disso lution of this kind would have on the government's case against the com bine. The prosecution has been under way for months, many hearings have been held, three thousand printed pages of evidence collected, and the arguments on the action for a forci ble dissolution are scheduled to come up In New York on May 1!) before United States Circuit Judge Lacoine, Cox.
