[Special Cable to The Tlmes-Dlspatch.]
Paris, February i6.?There was a
,-iolent lncidont In the Chambcr of

yho wai" chief sccretary of the
ilinistcr of War, and Captaln Sevour
md, who ls attached to tho minlstcr's
?ablnet, and acts as parliamcntary
secretary.
Tlie war budget was under di-cus
?ion. and Captaln Sevourand. ln rjufto"
i natural way, handed to the Minister
if War sonic do-uments which hc rc
(Ulred to answer a question. General
i'outec*. who was present, took umbrage
lecause the captain liad not flrst
vanded the documents to hlm, BO that
io might pass them on to tho min?
ister. Golng up to tho captain thc
general spoke to hlm angrlly, eventual?
ly ordering hlm pcremptorlVy to "clear
out," adding that the captain had no
risht to comrhunlcate dlrectly with
tho minister.
Even 'I'rlcd lo I*u?b lllni Oul.
Tlie captain stopped to tell sevoral
deputles what had happened, when
General Toutee again rushed up cx
cltedly. and told the captaln lo "get
out"' ln most violent terms. even ptit
tlng his liand oh the captain's shouldcr
as though to push him out.
Doputies at once became very ox
clted over the gcneral's action, which
they regarded as exceedlng tlie
limits of hls offlce. -and a hasty con?
ference of tho mernbera of thr govern?
inent was called, whilo a deputy de
manded to Imorpcllatc the government
on tlie means of making higher ranks
respect tliose below them in the same
way as hnd boen dono for the lower
urrades. The deputy ex pressed hls in
iigrnation at lhe action of General
I'outec.
Irnle General Is Ousled.
Hereupon General Brun, the Minister
?f War, asCended thc tribune aml said
ie regretted the lncidont and had iu.
vish to exaggerato it. "But ln vlew
>f the effect," he continued, "I rojeret
o announce to the Chumber that Gen

Thjs anh'ouncement was greeted with

[Special Cable to The Tirae3-Dlapatch."
Parls, February .6.?Since tho re?
turn of tho I'rlncc Dc-I Draga, tho hus?
band of Mrs. Joseph smlth, of tho Lton
Brewory, N'cw York, tho most oxtrav
agant and extraordinary commisslons
have been dcmandcd of hlm by hla
"fricnds" and by thc tradespcoplc wlth
whom hc did buslness.
Among those who touched large
commlsslons was Count Bonl dc C'as
tellane. Ills claim is based upon the
fact that hc Introduced tho Prlnce Dcl
Drago to a well-known goldsmith and
jewelcr in thc Rue do lu l'alx, whon
tho princo placed a heavy order for
sllver for hls manslon ln tho Ruc
Bassano. Count Bonl, who learned
tho art of "raking off in tho daya
when ho disbursed Anna Gould's cash,
received a commlsslon conunensurato
with hls ablllty and standlng as a
noblcman.
It camo nono too soon, tho count's
funds belng very low. In a fow weeks
ho will lose hls stipend of $3,0UU
yearly whlch he gains as deputy,
thero bolng no hopo of hls re-election.
Count Bonl's commlsslon ls duo more
to his social efforts than to anything
else. Prlnco Dcl Drago. though thc
grandson of a Queen. hns no such
standlrig in Parlsian socletv as Count
Boni. even ln hls fall.
Thc Marquiso do Castollano, Count
Bonl's mother, is one of tbc old no
blllty, and at hls request she Invlted
tho Prlncess Josephlno Smith Dcl
Drago to a rcctplon at her houso in
the Ruo Constantine. Tho flood had i
put out tho gas and electric llghts.
and thc functlon was given in flood
fashion by tho llght of'wax candlcs.
The Ainerlcan prlnce.3 thus met al?
most all of the old nobllity of France.
as well as many Italian arlstoerats.'

Another big commission has been
paid to Count Dlsonl, who was former?
ly ln tho Italian diplomatic servlce. lie
introduced the furniture dealer. He
asked .5 per cent.. but flnally tool:
15 per cent. commlsslons.
Thc most curlous of all ts the com?
mission asked for by the Vlcomto de
Pontac dc Bordeau. This nbblefnan is
trying to compcl Prince Del Drago to
pay hira a pereentago upon thc entire
Llon Brcwcry fortune, in other words,
a. matrinioiilal commission. De Pontac
himself was a suitor for thc. hand of
Mrs. Joscphine Smith when Del Drago
entered the fleld, and polnted out that
he, belng a prince, while De Pontac
was only a provinelal visconnt, the
latier's chanco of winnlng the Amer?
ican wldow was extremely slight.
Do Pontac, reallzlng tne force of
the argument. withdrcw from the con?
test. He now says he was promlsed
a commission, but Del Drago shrugs
hls shoulders, for tho French courts
have declded that a contract for ser?
vlces 10 bring about a marriago is
"Immoral," and cannot be enforced.

Only More So"?Expects

(Special Cable to The Times-Dispatch.]
London, February 26.?Bernard
Shaw, ln a conversation about theatri?
cal ntattei-3 In general, was inducccl
to say somethlng about hla ncw play,
"Mlsalllance," and its posslble effect.
"Mlsalllance" is in tho Hat of new
plays to bo produced at the Repertory
Theatre (Duke of York's).
"You may remember,*' sald Mr. Shaw,
"that the campaign against my plays
oixlmlnatcd nearly two years ago ln
an unprccedented outburat of denun
c.lation when my 'Getting Married'
was produced ut tho Hayinarket
Theatre. One London daily paper de
scribed tho curtaln as falling amld a
storm of htsses, lhe bald fact belng
that there wero six curtaln calls and
no hisses.
Hcleuseil tlie Mnnngor*.
"Thc effect was, for tho nioment.
very serlous. Tho hooklng at the
Haymarket Theatre went down tn the
lowest point ever reached In the. r?
corded hlstory of thc theatre. T im?
mediately released all tho managers
who had undertaken to produce tho
play elsewhere.
"The. pressure which had been put
on me for some years in Germany
to produce my plays there in the first
instance. and so avold the reports of
illsastroua fallure whirh lnvarlably fol?
low my London .productions, was re
doublod. It seemed for thc nioment
Unposslblc to expect nry newspaper
r_a._>' to go to a play so furlously
denounced as intoler?bic.
Kortunately a curlous thing hap?
pened. All the people who saw the
llrst performanco kept coming again
and again. untll tlie word passed
round that I had fooled the press
again?though I protest I had no ln
tention of doing it. Tlio situatlon was
saved, and the play pullcd through
handsomely,
.lnst I.ike "Getting Marrled."
"I now wi.sh it to be known a.s wlde
ly as possibic that 'Mlsalllance' is just
like 'Getting Married,' only much more
so. I have carefully cliari-hed, re?
peated and exaggerated every fcatur0
that the crltlcs denounced. I have
again gone back to the classlc form.
preserving all the unlties? no division
Into acts, no chance of scene. no sllly
plot, not a scra'p of what tho critic,
call art ion: nothing biit Shaw and
some very good aeting.
"I shal] be sorry to seo my old col
