Wine Merchant Paid Bills of the

Ing an American
Special to The Herald.
NEW YORK, Feb. 10.— Now that the
Countess de Castellane has come to the
parting of the ways, Newport's cottage
colony Is recalling what a determined
business man Count Bonl was. As one
who knows asserts, he was most mat
ter of fact about his purpose, but if It
had . not been for the financial aid
which Raoul Duval, a wine importer,
gave him ha would have cut a sorry
figure. Duval himself married a
daughter of a house of richeß, Beatrice
Tobln of San Francisco, whose father
founded the Hlbernla Savings society.
S Naturally Newport was Count Bonl's
Mecca, and there, with the credit of
Duval behind him, he opened his cam
• palgn in the summer of 1894. This was
not long after Mrs. Herman Oerichs
came east. Mrs. Oerlchs's sister Vir-
Klnla, now Mrs. William K. Vanderbllt,
Jr., was then Miss Fair, and the young
man with a title made plans to lay
siege to her heart. He got as far as
!Mrs. Oclrlch's door ono day and no
■further. Ho left a bunch of beautiful
La France roses behind him and later
they were Been scattered on thp lawn.
It waft said then that Mrs. Oelrlchs
wanted no title for her sister or any
one else in the Fair family.
Duval and Castellane were Insepar
able that summer and together they
gave one entertainment after another
which attracted attention.
It was always Duval who paid the
bills. At one of these entertainments
Castellane came under the favorable
notice of Mrs. Paran [Stevens, who put
him In touch with the Goulds and the
circumstances which culminated in his
winning Anna Gould. As time ran on,
Castellane's . financial condition got
panicky but Duval never failed, him.
It- was he who put him up at the
Waldorf Astoria, where the count gave
his farewell bachelor dinner on the eve
of his wedding to Miss Gould.

Mr. McCrea said:
"The Pennsylvania railroad 1b not
and never has been an owner or miner
of bituminous coal, either directly or
indirectly and therefore could not have
influenced West Virginia roads, in
which It Is interested, to suppress de
velopment of that state to protect its
own coal interests. Certainly there
has been no prompting on the part of
the Pennsylvania company In regard
to the Red Rock case, or any other

Carmichael, a Shanghai merchant, just
arrived here, Is the cry that has been
taken up In China and has spread like
wildfire from province to province,
kindling everywhere the slumbering
hatred of the Mongolian against all
foreigners. The spirit of revolt Is rife
In the land, young China Is rising, and
In his opinion trouble is bound to come.
Thf> growing sentiment against the
foreign element in Chlnn, according to
Carmichael, will result In open hostil
ities unless the powers take a hand and
show that they are prepared with
armed force to suppress the first signs
of an outbreak. He says that the only
way to gain the respect of the Chinese
is to Inspire them with a wholesome
fear of foreigners. Ho adds that the
few regiments stationed at Manila will
bo entirely Inadequate to cope with tho
trouble In ease It comes.
' "It Is Impossible," he says, "to deal
with the Chinese with diplomacy. The

bring them to their senses."

reported the proceedings to tho Chinese
papers. He quoted Mr. Bryan as de
claring that the labor party was -so
strong in the United States that Chi

would never be permitted to enter, and
as drawing a gloomy picture of what
would happen to the American work
men If the Chinese were allowed to
take away their employment.

Capt. E. J. Mikkelsen Believes There
Is a Big Archipelago, Still Un

By Associated Press.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 10.— Upon the
theory that there exists In the Arctio
region an enormous archipelago as yet
unexplored, lying between the Perry
Islands and "Wrangel land, off the Si
berian coast, Captain E. J. Mlkkelsen,
commander of the Anglo-American
Polar expedition, will undertake what
Is said to be an entirely novel cam
paign In the history of Arctic expedi
tions.' Although a subject of Denmark,
Captain Mlkkelsen, upon discovering
the new continent, intends to plant
there the American flag and claim It
as a possession of the United States.
He has no intention of trying to reach
the. North Pole, an undertaking which
he believes to be both Impossible and
useless of attainment. Captain Mlkkol
sen today, necompanled by the Danish
minister and Henry Edward .Rood of
New York City, called upon the presi
dent and explained to him the objects
and purposes of the expedition. Presi
dent Roosevelt expressed his hearty
approval of the enterprise. It was ex
plained that the object of Captain Mlk
kejsen Is to make scientific Investiga
tions, which probably will result In
new and important additions to the
present knowledge of geology, meteor
ology, hydrography, astronomy and
physics. , Captain Mikkelsen will have
as his companions on the expedition,
which will start from San Francisco
in May of the present year, Ernest
Leffingwell of the University of Chi
cago, who will have charge of nil of
the scientific work, and Ejnar Dltlev

Scientist Says One Hundred Years
Will See the Supply of Ore
By Associated Press.
CHICAGO, Feb. 10.— One hundred
years will probably see the exhaustion
of the world's present iron ore re
sources, according to Dr. C. Kenneth
Lelth, professor of geology In the Uni
versity of Wisconsin, who lectured last
night on the subject before the geologi
cal society. According to Professor
Lelth' the present known deposits of
high-grade ore In the United States
will be exhausted in a comparatively
short period of time and then the low
grade deposits will 'oe drawn upon,
.with the result of changing the geo
logical location of the great steel and
iron plants of the country. ■
"It is probable that the entry of low
grade ores Into the iron industry will
have the effect of bringing the fur
naces nearer the base of supply," said
Dr. Lelth, "and this means the removal
of the iron centers from Plttsburg and
other eastern points to Chicago and
points farther west. There are deposits
of low-grade ore In Colorado and Wy
oming, but it will be many years be
fore they will become factors of com
mercial importance." k .

nation announced with regret by the
department of state today of James VV.
Davidson, consul to Antung, Man

years retires because of his Inability
to longer draw on his private income

Mr, Davidson In his letter of reftlgn

too small to conduct In a satisfactory

had he not possessed some private
income obtained from literary work It
would have been Impossible for him to
contlnuo In service this long.
Had it been possible to retain Mr.
Davidson by transfer to a moro lucra
tive post the department would have
done so, but the offers he has had are
so far In excess of what he would re
ceive with the consular service that the
department has been forced to accept
his resignation.

Mrs. Julia Curry Trlnkle of 3040 Gallup

containing a fortune. It was found in
a tree trunk near Lincoln park. Mrs.
Trlnkle says in her letter that she read
in a magazine an account of the finding
of the box by workmen who were fell-
Ing trees in Lincoln park.
The story, she says, described the,
contents of the box as a small fortune
in money, a deed- to valuable land in
New York city, a will dated December
12, 1889, and diamonds and jewelery of
great value. Mrs. Trlnkle says that if
the name of William Curry is to be
found on any papers In the box
It is likely that the poperty be
longed to one of her ancestors, who
shortly before the date of the will was
stricken with brain fever , and subse
quently died from insanity, leaving no
will and no trace of a large amount of
money, diamonds and Jewelry. Be
cause of the failure to find the deed to
the property in New York the property
has passed out of the family.
Governor Stokes will make an effort
to locate .the finders of the box and ob
tain from them the Information which
Mrs. Trlnkle desires. ' [ \: '■::■:

Rabbi Hirsch of Chicago Declares It
Has No Place in Re.
By As*orlatnd Press.
CHICAGO, Feb. 10.— Emotionalism
In religion was opposed by Dr. Emll G.
Hirsch in his weekly lecture at Isra«l
temple last night. He declared that
Judaism Is not a religion of emotion
or sentiment, but of thought and study.
"The Jew is not sentimental," said
Dr. Hirsch. "for he thinks religion
logically. Any one can be an emotional
pastor. It takes little effort to make
people weep. In fact, In an emotional
religion It does not matter much
whether any one is in the pulpit.
"Religion, to be valuable, however,
should be unemotional. In our temple
we should furnish a stimulant for the
mind. This temple should be a house
of learning and people should come
here to be stimulated and urged to re
flection and thought. Everywhere in
the pulpit the man should have some
thing to say."
