t Ascot Crowd Insults the
Prince of Wales
The Cried Out JIavo You Broneht Your
Counters With Your Others Indulge
in More Offensive Thrusts
Special t THE HERALD Examiner Cable
LONDON June 12Kes reached the city
at a late hour last evening that a disagree
able scene occurred at Ascot races yester
day an unfavorable demonstration to the
Prince of Wales being made An attempt
has been made to hush the matter up and
the newspapers have been solicited from
influential quarters t make no mention of
the fact or at least to minimize the import
ance of the affair
It seems that as the prince va driving
up with part of his noble friends the crowd
in the vicinity composed mostly of well
dressed people but with a sprinkling of the
rougher element hooted and jeered his
royal highness making sarcastic allusion to
tho baccarat scandal Some cried out
Have you brought your counters with
you Others indulged in more offensive
thrusts The aristocratic group around the
prince though apparently too astonished
and startled to be in full possession of their
wits managed to make a counter demon
stration of rather a weak sort in support of
the prince who was himself pale with
anger and who cast furious glances at his
This is believed to be the first time that
disrespectful demonstration has ever been
made against the Prince of Wales by a
crowd bearing any claim to respectability
and the incident is even more significant
than the lecturing that he has been getting
the past few days from the religious and
secular newspapers
Referring to that portion of the foregoing
which states that This is believed to be
the first time that a disrespectful demon
stration has ever been mudo against the
Prince of Wales bv a crowd be riniranv
claims to respectability not a few will
I remember that in 1S70 when the Prince of
Wales appeared as a witness not to say co
respondent in the Mordaunt divorce case
which was tried in the absence of Lady
llordaunt as her insanity was certified to
by medical experts that he was insulted on
the streets Lady lordaunt had confessed
to her husband Sir Charles Mordaunt
Bart that she had been unfaithful to him I
with Lord Cole Sir Frederick Johnstone
and the Prince of Wales When in the
witness box the prince declared under oath
that there was no foundation for the ladys
statement nevertheless on one occasion
shortly afterwards a he was driving to
the theatre a London crowd greeted him
with cries Ah you who drove Lady
Mordaunt mad 1
Sir William Gordon Cumming writing to
a prominent Nottingham newspaper says

amount in round numbers t something
more than 7000 There is a rumor cur
rent in the city that Lord Coventry has

self and the officials of the Keystone bank

he knew about the Spring Garden bank

The Congo Slave Treaty
WASHINGTON Juno 12A number of in
quiries have been received at the state de
partment from philanthropic organizations
and individuals as to the failure of the
United States to signify its adherence to
the Congo treaty the final ratification of
which must be exchanged before the end
of the month This treaty is an agreement
to suppress the slave trade the sale of
I breechloading firearms and intoxicants in
I the Congo district of equatorial Africa and
nearly all 01 tne great powers nave accepted
it To the inquiries the state department
replied that the subject i still pending in
tho Unite States Senate and the depart
ment does not feel at liberty to discuss the
matter generally but it is proper to say as
the result of recent correspondence that it
is not improbable that the treaty will go
into effect at1he aopointcd time in respect
t all of the signatories except the United I
States and it will be left open to this gov I
ernment to give its adhesion hereafter I
The opponents of the treaty in the last ses
sion of the Senate took their stand upon
several propositions One was that the
approval of the treaty by the United States
would carry with it the recognition of cer
tain French claims to a largo part of Li
beria which recent events show are now
being actively pushed As that country is
regarded as one of our wards we could not
a I
permit such an aggression It is also urged
tho United States could not consistently
with the Monroe doctrine undertake to I
join a plan of dictation respecting the af I
fairs of another continent and again it
would be unwise for the United States to i
give recognition to the present rather broad
claims of European nations to the best por
by tions tho of treaty Africa which are tacitly recognized

I Father Mollinger Has not Been
Called to Rome
Crowds Assembling at Troy Din Awaiting
St Anthonys Feast Some Remarkable
CasesA Sketch of the Fathers Life
Special t THE HERALD examiner Dispatch
PiTTsncRG June 12An afternoon paper
published a report last evening that Rev
Father S G Mollingcr pastor of tho
Church of the Moat Holy Name on Troy
Hill Allegheny has been summoned to
Rome by tho Pope Father Mollinger is
famous the country over for his wonderful
success in healing the sick and even now I
thero are between three and four thousand
cripples and invalids blind people and deaf I
lodging in Troy Hill boarding houses wait
ing to bo taken in hand by the priestly
healer The story that ho had been called
to Rome caused the wildest consternation
among these sufferers as It was said ho
would sail away Monday next leaving them
to their fate The presumption was that I
the Vatican wanted to know all about Father
Mollingers labors a a physician his
methods income and resources The sen
sation was spoiled last night by Father
Mollingor himself He declared the Popo
had not sent for hiin that he had no inten
tion of going to Rome and that his work
would be continued a usuaL When he dis
poses of the thousands now here to be
Healed by him ho will go out of town for
his usual summer rest There aro
now over three thousand invalid
crowded into Troy Hill boarding
houses In anticipation of 8t Anthonys
day Saturday next when the same miracu
lous powers which distinguished St An
thony it is helloed will be given to his dis
ciple Father Molinger The sick in pall
nearly ten thousand will attend high
mass on that eventful morning that they
may receive tie blessing of Father Mol
linger and be cured of their infirmities
Afflicted people arc now coming into the
city by the score They arrive on every
express train entering the city and come at
all hours They have made sucb demands
upon the lines running to Troy Hill that all
night street cars have become a positive
necessity and are in active service between
the ers railroad station and Father Mailing I
The railroads are reaping a rich harvest
from the sick people said a Union station
official Every train Is filled with them
and I believe not less than one thousand
people have arrived since Monday morn
ing Last night over ono huudrei came in
on the express from the cast Two hours
later a many more arrived from the west
Another eastern soon arrived with some
more and in fact they came in at all hours
and kept the baggage men a busy a
beavers all night long I have been here
fifteen years and in all my ex
perience in railroading I never
saw anything like it Tnese sick people
come in from all points of the compass and
belong to all classes and conditions of men
Among those I saw this morning was a
family from Halifax Tho mother and
daughter came hero with two sons who are
totally blind The mother seenzed to havo
the greatest faith that the priest could
euro their affliction
A specimen case will servo to illustrate
the cures affected by Father Mollineer
Monday when Mrs Francis Heines arrived
from Waterloo X Y she was wheeled
about in an invalids cbair she could not
walk a step for eleven years her lower
limbs had been useless physicians were
able to afford her no relief and told her she
would never again bo able to walk What
I the disease was they could not determine
Last evening lr Heines unaided
walked moro than a dozen yards and is
assured that with returning strength she I
will fully recover the use of her limbs
Since her arrival at Troy Hill she has at
tended mass each day and patiently await
ed the audience with Father Mollinger
Yesterday her turn arrived She was car
ried by her brother and attendant into tho
presence of the the priestphysician People
standing in the church yard said it was too
bad but even Father Mollinger could do
nothing for one so hopelessly afflicted A
few minutes later an attendant came to the
door and exclaimed Make room for this
lady she is walking out She is cured
People standing about were for an instant
ncredulous Their astonishment turned
to awe as Mrs Heines walked down the
hal down three steps to where her in
valids chair was standing No person
aided her Father Mollinger did not seem
to do anything to me she said ton re
porter The minute I was carried Into
him be said You can walk now you aro
cured And I am Oh praise God And
Mrs Heines began to utter her thanks to
he Lord for her deliverance
A remarkable cure was reported in the
cae of James Duffy who has been unable
to hold anything in either band for several
years Yesterday Father Mollinger gave
him a crucifix to hold and looking him
steadily in tho eyes told him to clutch it
tightly The man obeyed and instantly all
trace of palsy left him n
Mamie Scanlon afflicted with hip
lisease and Mrs J Duffy of Biughamton
N Y suffering from a white swelling left
Wednesday for their homes perfectly
cured Such cures are reported daily as
St Anthonys day approaches Sufferers
from rheumatism and chronic disease pre
dominate among the arrivals
Father Mollinger was born atMoline j
Belgium May 29 1831 His parents were
people of some note his father having been
an officer in the Belgian army where he
made a reputation by his daring and ability J
The son early resolved to devoto his life to
religious work He was placed under the i
of monks of Louvain and
aro won high I i
honors in his classes He emigrated to the I
j I United States in 1S5G and April 3 1859
i was ordained a priest of the diocese of
Erie Pa For six years after his admis
sion to the priesthood Father Mollinger
traveled in the countries of Clarion and
i Jefferson At the end of that time he was
transferred to the Pittsburgdioceso He had
I charge of the rural missions of Perrysville
1 and Wexford for threo years Up to this
time his apparently extraordinary power to I
cure the sick had not been dreamed of by
himself or anyone else Father Mollinger
was called suddenly to Troy Hill mission
It was in poor condition and he set about
building it up Success attended his efforts
and so delighted were ho and his parishion
ers that it was decided to celebrate the
feast of St Anthony of Padua which falls I
