(CALLED ON CORBETT.
ROYALTY City of WAS ANXIOUS TO SEE THE CHAMPION. ge Met Dukes, Lords, Princes and Barons, gow They Impressed Him—Gentleman Jim's Ideas of Men and Things Across the Water. [Special Correspondence.] TEW YORK, Aug. 37.—"Soo Naples and lie!" For years ono of my ambitions had been to visit Europe, and this year I grati fied it- I was there almost five months, playing in London five weeks, in Paris 10 nights, and devoting the remainder of the timo to professional tour of tho prov inces—England, Scotland and Ireland. It was my good fortune to meet many celebrities, and although they did not causo beautiful pearls to bo dissolved in er utA*, food, us Nero is said to havo done to that given his guests, thoy treated me most courteously, and I had a splendid time. During my engagement at the Drury Lane theater, London, which Is managed by the greatest theatrical magnate in Eu rope, Sir Augustus Harris, I met numer ous people of rank, Sir Augustus being kind enough to bring many of his titled friends to see me. Naturally on our open ing night nearly every prominent person interested In sporting matters was present. After the performance I had the pleasure of being introduced to the Duke of Tcck, father of the wife of the Duke of York, who is wn of the Prince of Wales. His little grandson, who may one day be king of England, has been born since then. The duke expressed considerable surprise at physical appearance. He Surprised the Nobility. "Why, Corbett," he said, "you're not nearly so largo a man as I had imagined." He was accompanied by the Baron and Baroness Burdett-Coutts, and, continu ing, was kind enough to say: "You know you surprised all of us tonight. We hard ly expected to find an actor in the cham- AMES J. CORBETT. pion pugilist. Whenever you make up your mind to abandon pugilism, success awaits you on tho stage. I hope you won't feel offended if I ask to feel your muscles?" Of course I was willhig, although I had nothing but a dressing robe on at the time. We adjourned to my dressing room, where 1 stripped and stood before tho duke. "How the mischief did you ever manage to knock out such a giant as John L. Sul tan?" exclaimed the nobleman when ho saw me thus. He then volunteered to bring lis friends to see me and predicted a great snccess for me in London. The Duko of Teck I shall ever remember as the kindest of any of tho royalty I met. That same evening Lord Lonsdale and William Redmund and T. P. O'Connor, Irish members of parliament, called upon me. These two latter aro dear friends of my father's brother, James Corbett, who is a priest at Ballinrobe, in Ireland. Both complimented moon my acting. During my stay in London I met very many people I had read about and known by reputation for years. Tho Prince of Wales was not in town then. Afterward he sent me a note by a courier expressing a desire to see me, but it was not possible for me to arrange this, as we were playing up north at the time. His son, the Duke of York, I met while stopping at tho Hotel Savoy. He asked mo all about my health and wanted to have me spar for his bene fit. Unfortunately this could never bo con veniently arranged, and so I missed that chance. He Met the Premier Also, Others whom I met were tho Duke of Westminster, Duke of Bedford, Sir George Chittion, Lord Norris, Lord Rosebery, tho present premier and successor to Glad stone, Sir Arthur Sullivan and W. S. Gilbert of operatic fame, and many others whom I cannot now remember. In tho theatrical world I was presented to Henry Irving, Wilson Barrett, J. L. Toole, George Alexander, William Terriss and Osborne Tearle. I was banqueted at tho Savage club, the Reform club, tho Bond club and- some oth ers. My experience was that over thero one often meets royal persons who are averse to letting it bo known or display ing who thoy are, and this I found to be the custom among tho better class of peo ple in England. Thoy aro very quiet, and you are surprised when you learn you have been shaking hands with a lord, duke or marquis. It was my privilego to bo allowed to stop at the princely estate of William Wal dorf Astor, on tho banks of tho Thames, whither I was taken by young Clarence Muckay, son of John W. Mackay, the American "bonanza king." Tho latter is Also a friend of mine. Astor's grounds are the most superb I havo ever seen. Ho lives in style. The number of dollars he has spent thore would vex arithmetic to oount and credulity to believe. Brady Was on Hand. Tho guardian of Windsor eastle Invited me to go through that much worshiped precinct while the queon was away, but circumstances prevented. Brady, however, who seldom misses a trick, went to Wind sor as an attache of Sir Augustus Harris' Roval Italian Ooera company and was within so teet dc ner royai nignness dur ing tho entire evening's performance. About this time tho king of Belgium wroto me a personal lotter, or rather he dictated It to ono of his attaches, asking mo to *par at the Antwerp exhibition. Being billed elsewhere, I had no alternative but to deollne. The fogs of London aro groat institu tions. We in America can thank our lucky stars thut we are oxemptfrom them. My impression of England generally is that tho peoplo aro poor. Tho country is too thiekly populated. For a inanufactur in* oountry the deoiesslon Is verv great. Aly trailer is tnat tree trauo nuris me vari ous Industries. Why, you can engage an ablebodied man for 90 shillings (|5) a week. There appears to be no middle class. They aro either very rich or else pre cisely tho reverse. Never before anywhere have I seen bo many beggars as In Eng land. If I stepped out of my hotel and Into a carriage, they would surround mo and expeot me to shower them with pen nies. The condition of the workman there Is Infinitely worse than in Uncle,Sam's domain. Throughout the provinces the prices for seats In theaters are extremely low. A quarter of a dollar will secure a good seat, and the price runs down aa low as sixpence. Hardly any one site In the 3 shilling seats at any time. This Is because the commons look upon the theater as a luxury. They do not usually go more than twice a year, and this at pantomime time, which is between Deoember. and March. As a sort of offset to this the prices in London are higher than In any othei city in the world. The English are very enthusiastic. I received more applause •id kinder receptions there than have evet been my lot before, but they have no money. For Instance, a £600 week there is considered a good one, whereas hero it is called poor. Result of Cheap Labor. The managers employ cheap labor, and no pains are taken in productions except in the groat English metropolis, London, where plays are put on with an extrava gance which would do credit to tho queen of Sheba. But outside of the chief city I am forced to say England is the deadest place I ever struck. Take Birmingham as a sample. A city of nearly 500,000 popu lation, yet as soon us the clocks strike 10 the saloons close and everybody trundles off to bed. It is almost a crime to strike a match after midnight. The police and fire departments are inferior to ours, but the former are far more reserved. They use all sorts of kindness and sweet words to avoid having any trouble with you, but If you once get them aroused look out! The English bobbies are really tho finest set of men I have ever seen. Indeed they are ahead of the militia. They are from 0 to 7 feet tall. Their salaries start at about £1 a week, but when they become veterans in tho service thoy receive good pay- Scotland Js'vcry like England, only the natives aro less bright. They aro a home loving race, which pays much more atten tion to churchgoing than to patronizing the playhouse. In fact, Sunday is better kept there than any plaoe I have evei heard of. It is an unusual thing for the peoplo to go anywhere on that day or do anything at all. Edinburgh is indeed a beautiful place, and although as far north as Labrador the climate is delightful. Impressions of Ireland. I was surprised in Ireland. I expected to find grim poverty stalking about star ing visitors impudently in the face, but in this belief I was happily disappointed, al though in many counties the residents are extremely poor. Dublin- is tho best city. 1 went through the brewery where Guin ness' stout is manufactured. It is capi talized at $100,000,000 and pays 15 per cent on tho investment. The men in Dub lin are good looking, and I thought the girls and women very, very pretty. There is a great deal of business done there. 1 saw Phenix park, where Burke and Cav endish met their deaths, and also Dublin castle. Belfast, famous for its linen and linen mills, is much like an American town. There was an "Uncle Tom's Cabin" com pany playing Ihere the week after we left, the members of which were all American negroes, mostly plantation hands. Whilo in Ireland I kissed the blarney stone. In Belfast tho people are mostly un demonstrative. They did not go into rap tures over me, although I am an Irish Catholic and my uncle a priest. It is said that 70 per cent of the people of Ireland are Protestants, but I fancy this must be a mistake. In Ballinrobe, where my undo lives, all aro very poor. If the crops turn out good, they are all right if not, they simply starve. In one of the provinces where wo were no English is spokon, only Gaelic. It seemed to mo the folks were all talking in German, and you can judge my astonishment when I thought I heard Irish people talking in that tonguo. Thero is moro poverty in Limerick and Cork than in Belfast. It is said there are 60,000 Irish who speak no English. Thero are plenty of railroads throughout the kingdom, but tho cars are much in ferior to ours. If you take an all night car, you must roll up in a blanket, and as they seldom heat tho coaches and than by hot water tanks it becomes cold enough to freeze the hair off an arctic dog before morning. Should tho car roll off the track you would probably die liko a rat in a trap, for you are locked in it. Cost a Barrel For Tips. Tho children and peoplo generally over there are civility itself. Ono rarely hears a man or boy swear, and they will "sir" you to your heart's content. Tho servants attend to you, overy want, but they expect to bo tipped when you leavo your hotel. I guess it cost me a barrel of money for tips, for I gavo up liberally. Bobby Gaylor, tho Irish comedian of our company, became about as popular as it is possiblo fur a man to becomo in Great Britain, and in London they nearly Went into ecstasy over him. Ho was offered good big salary to go back there next year, and this he may do. Whilo in Paris I was presented to tho lato President Carnot, the present Presi dent Cnsimir-Perier, tho American embas sador, Mr. E fist is, und others. They were all introduced in French, and I couldn't understand a word said, but it was explain ed to ran latft. Never in mv life have about America tnan ever uutore. 1 been better treated than in the rencn capital, and I shall always bo glad to go back there. I learned that Casimir-Perier had said he wanted to meet the 'American giant," and that ho had an idea I was built something like John L. Sullivan. When ho found I wasn't,ho said he "didn't know much about pugilism, but bo sup posed I represented tho coming genera tion of pugilists and thought it remarka ble I should have ability as an actor as well. Casimir-Perier wears tho grand cordon of the Legion of Honor. I doubt not that the French people already love him as they did his martyred predecessor. When I left New York for Europe on the Fuorst Bismarck, Charles A. Dana and Baron Hirsch were among my fellow pas sengers. Coming back on the Majestio, there wore many people whom I knew. During tho voyago it was our misfortune to run Into a small vessel, and one of her sailors was drowned. We gave a benefit for the ones who were rescued and real ised $1,800 by this means. I made a speech at tho first cabin concert and presided at tho entertainment glvon in tho second cabin. And In closing let mo say that as the re sult of my tour I am more enthusiastic PROSTRATE BEFORE A KING. Two Americans Pay Their Respectt to the Ruler of Korea, [Special Correspondence.] MILWAUKEE, Aug. 98.—Last December two Milwaukeeans paid a visit to Korea and had tho somewhat unusual experience of being presented at the court in that far away kingdom ovor which China and Ja pan are now at war. Professor A. B. do Guerville, then a resident of this city, was sent to Korea on a diplomatic mission. He was accom panied by Walter C. Chandler, a wealthy young Milwaukeean who was on a tour around the world. De Guerville had duly accredited government papers and asked for an audience with tho almost inaccess ible ruler, and it was Chandler's good fortune to visit the royal residence with him. Their mission was partly Interpre ted and stated by a series of stereoptican views, and the two gentlemen gave his Korean majesty a private exhibition in his own apartments. It was on a cold afternoon in December that wareceived the command of his maj esty LI Hsl, king of Korea, to appear be fore him and deliver an illustrated lec ture. After having hastily donned even ing dress we found to our dismay that but two sedan chairs could be obtained upon such short notice for three of us. Here was a predicament. Walking is, for a Eu ropean, at any time disagreeable in Seoul, and to go to the palaco on foot in an un pardonable breach of etiquette. Luckily at that moment I espied a native of my acquaintance leading a rheumatic pony, and by means of threats and bribes ulti mately succeeded in obtaining possession of the sorry steed, and attired as I was in evening dress mounted and led the way, fol lowed by the chairs containing Dr. Allen, then secretary of the American legation, and Professor do Guerville. The distance from the mansion which wo occupied (Seoul is innocent of anything analogous to a hotel) to the palace gates was about half a mile, and wo picked our way through tho narrow and exceedingly dirty streets, followed by a crowd of curious na tives. Upon our arrival wo were met by a court official representing the king, a host of eunuchs and a number of outland ishly and shabbily uniformed soldiers, who conducted us through innumerable court yards to a small building whore dinner was awaiting us. Tho Korean architecture resembles that of the Japanese, inasmuch as the walls of the houses are largely constructed of pa per, in consequence of which they offer but slight protection from the cold. An ineffectual attempt was made to heat the room with "hibachis," but upon inform ing tho official who had received us that we preferred freezing the salamanderlike arrangements were removed. Enveloped to tho eyes in ereatcoats and wearinsr nats ana gloves, we succeeaea in eating a dinner which, if it left much to be de sired, could only bo laid to an imperfect knowledge of European cooking, and for which our host was profuse in his apolo GOING TO THE PALACE. gies, although we assured him that no French cook could, if asked to do so, pre pare a Korean dinner that would in any way comparo with it. We were next conducted through a few more courtyards to the building in which tho lecture was to bo given. Here we were again besieged by the eunuchs, and with great difficulty I succeeded in spreading the canvas and in putting the lantern to gether. Then came the command to np pear at the presentation, and I, who had been speculating upon tho number of sa laams accompanying the ceremony, was relieved to find it necessary that some one should remain to defend our paraphernalia against the prying fingers of tho eunuch Presently the courtiers began to come in. The room occupied by the king, the queen the crown prince and the ladies of the court was darkened and contained the screen opposito which the partition had been opened enough to admit tho rays from tho lantern, which was just within the adjoining room. Tho professor and I took our places on either side of tho in strumcnt, in front of which stood Min, a cousin of tho queen and therefore one to whom she was allowed to speak and by whom she might be soen. Tho lecture was successful despito tho fact that some of the pictures would in sist upon being shown upside down, and greatly interested the royal family, who asked a great number of questions through Min, who, huving been educated in tho United States, spoke English with more or less fluency. After ho had finished his majesty, being sociably inclined, came to the door and conversed with tho profess or. It was then that for tho first time he became aware of my presence, for botli of us chanced to peep around the partition simultaneously and came face to face, to his evident surpriso and to my moro evi dent embarrassment. At his request I was as formally presented as the circumstances permitted. "Mako a bow," said tho professor iu a stage whisper from aoross tho lantern. 1 bowed in what I considered my best sty la "Bow lowor," came from tho professor in frantic accents, and then I nearly touclicd the floor. Then came tho crown prince, a sickly youth of about SI years, whom oven the famous ''ginseng," which is supposed to be an infallible remedy for all tho ills to whioh flesh is heir and from tho sale of which the king derives perhaps the greater part of his income, has failed to benefit, and tho same formalities, accompanied by the same admonitions from tho now in spiring professor, and tho presentation, to my unspeakable relief, was over. I now had rpportunlty to look upon the •acred person of tho king of heaven. LI Hsl is a smnll man, being not moro than 5 feet 6 Inches in height, with an intelli gent and rathor handsome face, ornament ed with a scant board, which has never known a razor. He is tho twenty-olghth sovereign of tho Han dynasty and has reigned about 30 years, being now about 4.1 vears of nun. lltvwos dressed in a mac- nlflcent robe of red silk 'emuromorai wiru unique devices and encirci.ni by a girdle five or six sizes too large. I have heard him spoken of as being the handsomest man in Korea, but in my opiidou ho must yield that distinction to Mln, tbe queen's cousin, who would lie considered a hand some man in any country. GEORGE H. T.uiowtra. FIGURES DO NOT LIE. YET THEY ARE FULL OF MYSTERY AND PRONE TO DECEIVE. Vow Ex-Fresldent Reinhart of the Atchi son Railroad Learned the Business—Ex pert Accountants and Expert Analysers. Jay Gonld and Vanderbllt. [Special Correspondence.] NEW YORK, Aug. 37.—According to the proverb, figures da not lie, and yet a recent most exciting event which occurred in the business world has shown that they may be so grouped, set apart and handled to mystify and even to mislead. A young man not many years ago en tered the service of one of the greater rail way corporations of this country as an accountant. That is about the last department in railway organ izations from which It would be expected that a youngclerk might be promoted by successive steps until he reached the presidency. Yet this young man was promot ed, although by j. w. REINHART. other than the first corporation into whose employ he en tered, until at last he became the presi dent of one of tho greatest railway corpora tions in the world, certainly the greatest in the number of miles of track operated by it. It was tho Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe system. He was only a little past 40 when he was placed in this post of great responsibility and opportunity, one of the youngest men ever chosen to such a responsible posi tion. President Reinhart, for it is of him that this experience is related, never had other opportunity for learning the details of tho railway business than that which lie obtained either as subordinate or prin cipal in the rooms where railway accounts are kept. In that department he displayed unu sual ability, and after he was placed in charge of the accounts of the Atchison system he prepared and published a re port upon tho condition of that great prop erty which fascinated those who are in terested in railway affairs far more than any novel could do. It had such instan taneous success in the railway world as some of the stories of Dickens did in the world of fiction readers. It was an almost marvelous display of what could be done with figures and what a dramatic and ex citing story they could bo made to tell. As a result of this literature of figures Mr. Reinhart was promoted so that he be came vice president of the company, hav ing supreme control over the accounts, subject only to the action of the president or directors. Later ho was chosen presi dent, but within a few months after he thus b&ame associated with some of the greatest railroad managers of the country bis corporation was compelled to ask the protection of the courts. Not long after that another one of those who are able to go behind the mystery of figures and to dig out from it the truth which lies con cealed made a report which alarmed tho business world. This magician of figures, or expert ac countant, discovered that in one of the special accounts there was concealed, as ne said, an enormous deficiency or obliga tion incurred, as he reported or suggested, through the payment of rebates, or perhaps for some other reason duo either to unfor tunate management, or, as some of the stockholders havo charged, to illegal acts, done prior to Mr. Reinhart's control. If this special account,amountingtoasmuch as $7,000,000, was created to cover up the payment of rebates, then It was a deceit made possible by the ability to manipu late figures so that they might tell any tale, for under the laws of congress the naviuent of rebates is illegal. Mr. Rein nart was not responsible ror tnese acts, but he was tho victim, because the discov ery was made during his term. Figures brought him his high office, and figures afterward cost him his place and splendid opportunities. Whatever the reason for tho creation of this account, tho exposure of tho expert accountant was followed by the resigna tion of Mr. Reinhart from the presidency, and ho thus was made to sutler for the mistakes of others. The ability to analyze figures and the capacity so to group them as to make them tell the truth so that anybody can understand it at a glance are among the most important of the qualities which the direction of a great railway demands. There havo been very able railway man agers who had no special capacity for deal ing with figures in the way of accounts and, on the other hand, some very able financiers would mako very poo? prac tical directors of railway companies. Mr. Gould was one of these latter, lie had an extraordinary capacity for analyzing figures. When ho was thinking of buy ing a railway, he always called for tho re ports, and ho went through them almost by intuition, so that no magician of fig ures was ever able to deceive him. There in lay his great power. He was able to employ very ablo men to manage his rail ways, but there were only one or two men whom ho ever met whose judgment he ro lled upon In the examination of accounts and reports. Lucius Tuttle, tho young president of the great Boston and Maine system, has both tho capacity to analyze figures and to manage a railroad, and so had Tom Scott, in some respcetS the greatest rail way president we have ever had. Com modore Vanderbllt could organize, could discover tho weak or false statements in any reports or figures, but ho was not real ly a great practical manager, and know ing that he always employed at tho high est salaries men who had conspicuous abil ity in that way.

One of the most interesting articles found among the recent numerous es says upon the private life of Napoleon Is on the toilet of the emperor, which, it appears, was a most important mat ter and regulated down to the smallest details with mathematical precision. When awakened it was Napoleon's cus tom to glance over the paper while the fires were lit. He was sensitive to cold, and afire was prepared in every room even in midsummer. Then of distin guished people awaiting an audience he would designate those whom he wished to see, after which he would rise and take a hot bath, lasting about an hour. The daily shaving was the next duty. Ordinarily his physician, Corvisart, would be present, chatting and securing favors for his friends. Napoleon's greeting was usually some badinage, such as: "Ah, charlatan! How many patients have you killed this morning?" And the physician would reply in kind. Two valets were neces sary for shaving, one holding the basin and another the mirror. The emperor, in a flannel robe, de chamber, then covered his face with soap and began to shave. Throwing off his rcbe, No poleon was next delug-ed with eau de cologne and subjected to a thorough scrubbing with a rough brush. The valet then rubbed the whole body with linen rolls saturated with eau de col ogne—a custom that Napoleon had ac quired in the east. The scrubbing was none cf the lightest, either, for he would call out from time to time: "Harder—rub harder." When the scrubbing was over the emperor dressed himself. A curious detail of his custom was the religious care with which he kept hung around his neck the little leather envelope, shaped like a heart, which contained the poison that was to liberate him in case of irre trievable reverses of fortune. This poi son was prepared after a recipe that Cabanis had given to Corvisart, and after the year 1808 the emperor never undertook a campaign without having his little packet of poison.
