NO GREAT SECRET "AFFAIR" Willi THE NOBLEMAN Motive for the Masquerade which Has Lasted for- Past Fifteen Years, Mixed—Was Driven From Home When IS Years of Age and Immedi ately Assumed Role of a Man. Associated Press to. The- Evening Tlmea. Chicago, Dec. 26.—The excitement growing out of the discovery that Nicolai de Raylan, for years clerk to Baron Schiippenibach, Russian consul in Chicago, was a woman, a discovery only made after her death, in Phoenix, Ariz.,, has been solved, by the admis sions of the two women with whom she lived as "husband." The' motive for De Raylan's mas querade,. which had seen kept up for fifteen years, is mixed. Part ot it dates back to her early affair with a girl in Southern Russia, at the first period of her assuming "manhood," and part of the explanation is found in her connection with revolutionary "bunds" in this country and Russia. Mrs. Eugenie Bruchulis, 3112 South Halsted street, De Raylan's first "wife," and .Mrs. Anne De Raylan, 592 California avenue, both unbosomed themselves in explaining the "mys tery." There was no great secret dating back to an "affair" with a nobleman in Russia. The woman, De Raylan, was of the common class and of the southern part. The 11-year-old boy. who had been reported as being the real child of the De Raylan woman, is in reality, as Mrs, Anna De Raylan has stated, her own child. The boy is the son of Joseph Armstrong, 1133 Milwaukee avenue, her former hus band, and the register of the birth is in the city hall. Armstrong appeared and claimed the fatherhood. The re ported "kidnapping" of the boy is a fiction, according to Mrs. De Raylan. The idea of posing as a man grew gradually with the De Raylan girl. Trouble with her parents over a revo lutionary secret drove her from her home in Elizavetgrad when IS years old. She went to the town of Kamen yets, and there, as a man, won the love of a young girl, Jenya Vassilo vitch. Throughout all her life in America as a man, the romance clung to her. There was a diary, which Mrs. Cruchulis revealed, telling ail the de tails of this sad romance It told of how the De Raylan girl lost the love of "Jenya," referred to as "my angel girl," through an affair with a girl of the Neva quarter in St. Petersburg. During the years of her double life in New York and Chicago and the City of Mexico, letters constantly weut back to Russia to the "angel girl." The girl wrote pitiful letters, begging to be brought to this country, saying that she would be good and true, and at one period De Raylan tried to in duce her friend, Francis Bruchulis, to marry her old '"sweetheart." During her residence in America, several other instances of like nature (Continued on page 8.) THE EVENING TIMES Stands for North Dakota at all Times and Under all Circumstances.
