[Es tersd at the l-cstomco Alexandria, Virgin is, hb ecc^nd-class matter.! A DUEL WITH CHESSMEN. William Stampfer, proprietor of the "Manhattan Cafe," at the corner of Ninth street and Second avenue,does not whether know bis friend, Baron Eugen von 0:tenkron, has really put an end to his existence or is merely playing a lover's dodge to frighten '"Clara" into listening to Iiis suit. As the matier stands, however, the baron and his rival, Otto Erlanger, fought an "American duel" at the Manhattan Cafe on Monday night. The baron was the loser and has disappear? ed, leaving word that he would take his life, according to the code. "Baton vou Otleukron and I were fellow students at Vienna," said Mr. Stampfer to me Tuesday night. "He comes from an old aud noble Bohemian family, and is a regular patron of my place." "] thought nothing of it when the Baron brought hie friend, Otto Erlang? er, here Tuesday night and began to play chess in one of the upper rooms. But the game seemed so interminable that I asked them if iL would never end. "Don't disturb us," said Vou Otten . . "This is a serious matter." "Two hours later I was called up to the room where the two men hud at lasl finished their game. The Baron was hiti and trembling. He could scarce? ly speak coherently as he placed a little package io my hand. '? 'Perhaps you'll never see ma again, ; i friend,' he stammered. 'Keep these binga tor me. I'll send you a letter in a day or so.' "With that he rushed from the room, without casting a glauce at Erlanger, .\ bo .-lowly followed him. "I did not regard the affair seriously ai that time, as both are impetuous aud hot tempered men. Bin yesterday I ved the promised letter from Ot teukrOH. and it puts quite a serious as? pect on the mutter, considering that it comes from a man who is advanced in the thirties."' In the letter 1 be Baron writes that in.' and Erlanger had fallen in love with a young woman named Clara. They ; :: decided to end the rivalry by play? ing three games of chess, the loser to commit suicide. "i lost," writes the baron. "I intend Waving this city of misfortune. I will kill myself at some distant point, so that my unidentified body will not be a burden to my friends. "Clara loved me once. Perhaps she will think of me tenderly when she iiears I am dead. The package I left with you contains correspondence and a few valuables, which I bequeath to my friend, Frederic von Muehlbacb. He will call for them." Mr. Stampfer says that he has never heard o! the young woman called Clara. There were more thao a dozen letters in the package, all sigued "Clara," and addressed to the baron in the most af? fectionate und endeariug terms. A young mau, faultlessly attired, but in a state of great excitement, called <m Mr. Stumpfer Tuesday morning, and, giving the name of Frederick von Muehlbacb, demanded the baron's package. He gave a receipt for the articles it contained. The list includes a plain gold ring, a small black metal watch, a platinum aud gold chain, a silver match box aud thirteen letters signed "Clara." Mr. Stampfer was so busy at the time that he was unable to question Von Muehlbach. Afterward he tried to re? call the addresses of the baron and his friend Erlanger, but he only remem? bers that they stayed in some board? ing house on the east side. Von Muehlbach he had never seen before. He says thai the baron was not giv? en to melancholia, but was a very pas? sional e, erratic sort of individual. Despite the fact that his letter is ex? tremely earnest aud sombre in its tone. Mr. Stampfer thinks the baron is in hiding not far from Second avenue, awaiting the effect that the announce? ment of his demise will have upon the obdurate "Clara."?V. }". Herald.
