BY LA MAfllU ISK DB PONTIAOV. EMPEROR WILLIAM'S new ambas? sador at Constantinople, Karon Hans von Wangen helm, who tins a number of relatives of the same name living in this country, both lu New York and elsewhere, was a IreQuent visitor to tho United states while minister plenipotentiary to Mex? ico. In jssi'i he married a Ocrttian American girl?daughter of a natural? ised American citizen?Lucy Ahrenfeld, of New York, but tho union proved unhappy, and wag dissolved by the German divorce courts In 1 ?57, and he subsequently led to the altar Hur? on, aa Joanna vg.ii bpluenberg. He 'a a. man ot the Marschall von Bieber? stein school, and spent many years at Constantinople) ;is hin most trusted lieutenant. lie lacks bis former ohlef'a ? suavlter In modo." but corresponding? ly surpasses him In the matter ot "for-. liter in ro," and whenever Bieberstein was compelled to call the SufoUmo Porte to account with more than usual Vigor, he was wont to leave Constan? tinople for a few days, so as to turn over the task to Waiiguiiluin as charge d'affaires. I So painful,' indeed, must b-> the i memories which tho Turkish govern? ment has retained of Wangenhelm, i that I am rather surprised at tbeir aci eptlng Mm as a persona grata. An? other Important position which brought Wangenhelm Into tbe public ey?. was that of charge d'affaires In Morocco about threo years sine.-, when tho Franco-Qerman contretemps at Caaa ; blanca was brought about by the I French seizure from German boats 'it 'port of deserters from the French For ?den L'-glvn who wore of German ; birth. Wangenhelm contributed much to settbmc.it of this difficulty, which at I one lime was very acute, and was ' thereupon sent to Athens, whence he has b?en promoted to his present post. He mav be relied upon to cont'nue the clever policy of Bieberstein, and to maintain the predominance whi. h tho latter won for Germany of late years at Btamboul. The two br <f lines announcing tne death of Countess wolkenstetn-Trost berg show how completely forgotten by the present generation Is that re? markable woman, who play.-d 30 Im? portant a political and social role in Paris, Vienna and especially In Ber? lin some- thirty or torty years ago, when her salons In the Gorman capi? tal were the acknowledged headquar I bers of that powerful Court Camarilla. , which, favored by old EinprcVs Au , gUSta and other members of the Ho hensollorn family, fought lismarck' ( tooth and nail. The memoirs and biographies of the ? Iron Chancellor are full of bitter com ? plaints about the manner In which his plans and policies wore obstruct 1 Cd. and III 'many Instances fofled, by this court car.nl. So enraged, indeed. ? lid he become that lie lodged a Strong ] protest with old Emperor Will am against the use of the imperial pul I aces as tnueting places of the Camar I ilia. Countless wolkensteln, who was . then the youthful, blonde and fascin? ating wife of old Count Schleinitz, minister of the royal and Imp. rial house, had as such magnificent apart? ments assigned to him in the old Kaiser's palaces, both at. Berlin and Potsdam. The old Emperor was very fond Of Schleinitz, and still more so of his wife, so he contented himself with laughingly protesting against her assumption of leadership In rebel? lion against his government. In those days she was known all Over Europe by the nickname of "La Prlncc8se Trompotto," owing to her fanatical udoral'on for Wagner's mu? sic; and there is no doubt that the Icomposer owed even more to her championship than lu that of Princess Pauline Metternich. Coslma Wagner, I am glad to any, has remembered this, and sent her son, Siegfried, with a beautiful dural token ana a card expressive of remembrance to be placed on the countess's cofltn. At least Hire, ambassadors of great powers wer? recalled from Berlin ..t I'..-mack's instance on account ot their frequenting the salons of Pr'n cesse Trompette," and it was with pro? found relief that he learned one morn? ing of the sudden death of her aged husband, as bo believed that it would greatly diminish her power. But she was still destined to remain a very -harp thorn in his side. Eor, after a year of widowhood, sin.- married Count Anthony von Wolkensteln-Trostborg. who for ten years had been her most devoted admirer, Ii s Infatuation fo> her being ns widely known as that of the late iiuke of Devonshire fot '? the late Duchess of Manchester boforj he led her to the altar. Wolkensteln was a Knight of the I Golden Fleeci and Austrian ambassa? dor at St. Petersburg. The Dowager '? Czarina Is passionately devoted to I music, and this community of taste ? with "La Prlncegse Trompette" soon led to the development or a great in? timacy between them. Indeed, the in . fluence which the ambassadress ob I talned over the Empress and over the Emperor through ber was altogether remarkable, and was naturally em : ployed to foster, n Austrian interests, the intense aversion of the imperial ? pair for Bismarck. In fact, the COUIlt i uss was more dangerous to h'm at St. Petersburg than she had ever been ! as Countess Schleinitz at Berlin. Af ; ter the Czar's death and Bismarck's downfall the Wolkenstelns, who suf? fered greatly from the climate of Ruft . sla, secured their transfer to Paris, I where they remained until tho j count's retirement from the diplo? mats service, in 11*03. In Paris, the countess was much at home; for It was in its salons that as I Fraule'n von Buch, daughter of tho Prussian minister at Home', uho made I her debut lu society at the celebrated , fane) dress unit of Princess Mottet nlch, which, of all tho festivities of 1 the Second Empire, Is perhaps tho only tme that has made for Itself a place In h'story. t>Kl i'.mil's publication In American mugazints of his expcrleneoi aa a leading official of the French secret i service police has given tho public some Idea of tne cave with which the I authorities of every country safeguard visiting royalties, whether traveling ' incognito or otherwise. The reason, ' therefore, of the anger displayed by the Kaiser towards the Hamburg po? lice for nut "shallowing" the int.-King lot Denmark, for that monarch's own ] prot- ctl.hi. Is easily understood. Th.- King, who was nearly seventy years old and In had health, was well known In Hamburg, where his arrival under 11 transparent Incognito, attend? ed by a suite that occupied an entire . floor of tho Hamburger Hof, had at? tracted much attention. I The ignoble Insinuations put forward ' by the Hamburg authorities In an 1111 praiseworlhy effort to excuse their criminal neglect have fortunately ben met toy Immediate and ovecwhelmlng evidence. Twenty minutes only elaps? ed between the King's leaving the hotel and his death. Bach minute Is accounted for. He strolled to the Cafe I do I'Opera, In tho Qansenjarkt, bought a Whiskey and soda und a picture postcard, and seated himself at one of the cafe tables to address the card 10 one Of his little grandchildren, with a loving message and a promise of speedy return. Walking thence to tht. nearest iiia'lhox he posted tho card and was immediately overtaken by heaTt fa'lure. In spite of the fact that before his death he was able to give h<S hotel address to a passerby?a doc? tor some say ? hts body was hurr'od lo the morgue, where the "found drowned" and dead longshoremen are taken. Tho Kaiser might well bo oven more than nngry. (Copyright. 1012, by the Brontwood Company. 1 DR. W. W.
