VIENNA.— (Correspondence of the
Associated Press)—Pending an in-1
vestigation by parliament of the dis
position of the imperial funds, the po
sion of the former Emperor Charles
and the erstwhile imperial family con
tinues to be a painful one though not
dangerous unless the situation should
lead to disorders. In that event the
family possibly may travel to Swit-1
zerland or elsewhere.
The socialist papers continue freely
to attack the former emperor, arch
dukes and aristrocracy, claiming that
the latter did not do their duty during
the war. There is much critical and
frivolous gossip concerning the for
mer Empress Zita.
The secret file of the old Emperor
Francis Joseph is being examined.
His fortune is variously estimated at
from 30.000,000 to 200,000,000 crowns.
" According to one report the old em
peror divided 60,000,000 crowns be
tween his two daughters, Gisela and
Valerie, and his grand-daughter, the
Princess Windischgraotz, with other
large sums, the imperial funds from
which donations were made to church
es, pensions and the royal poor. Al- '
though Charles, officially is the dis- 1
penser of these funds, it is stated
that in reality it is handled by the ,
band directors. j
Ekertsau castle, where the former j
emperor is now living does not belong ]
to him but is property of the state to
gether with other large estates and
also the famous collection of jewels
in Hofburg castle among which is the
"Fiorentina" diamond called the j
1'ourth largest in the world, and also a 1
wonderful necklace. It is expected :
that this property will be distributed
among the various republics of the '
former empire when the accounts are

Declaring that he believed the Am
erican people could not and would
not permit the cradle of the white
man's civilization to perish, C. Y.
Vickery, secretary of the American
Committee for Relief in the Near !
East ( formerly Armenian and Syrian I
Relief), expressed confidence that the j
committee's need of $30,000,000 for re- j
lief work among the poverty-stricken j
and starving Armenians and others in i
the near east would be fully realized
and the nation's quota would be sub
scribed between January 12 and 19

of Spokane, chairman of the campaign
in eastern Washington and northern
Mr. Vickery pointed out the dire
need of orphanages for the children of
Armenia and other sections of the
Ottoman empire, orphaned by the
wholesale murder of their parents by
the Turks, by citing one of the many
touching incidents that come to the
committee from American missionar
ies and its relief workers in the near
east. He said that $4,000,000 of the
$30,000,000 would be devoted to the
building of orphanages for the strik
en children.
The incident cited by Mr. Vickery
to stress the need for orphanages fol
lows :
"Everybody is dead but us," sobbed
two little brothers, when they were
discovered living alone in a dug-out.
"Go, run for your lives and God bless
you," was the warning prayer of their
sister when she sent them away while
she remained behind with their dying
"For two weeks, the little brothers
had fled from the Turks as their sister
bade them, hiding by day and running
by night. At last they reached the
dug-out which had been made by sol
diers of one of the armies fighting in
that country and there the little boys
were found by a passing American
All the food they had during their
flight was roots, berries and grass. In
a pitiable condition, they were taken
to an orphanage, established by funds
contributed by the American people.
Here they are being cared for along
with 500 other child refugees.

some phases of the work and declared
he would join in a demand for thor

Although saying that he had no
quarrel with the Y. M. C. A., he laid
emphasis upon what he called the
"utter inefficiency of the officials in
charge of the work in France."

Four Hearts That Beat As Two.
Two weddings were solemnized at
the Methodist parsonage last evening
at 8 o'clock. This was not a double
wedding, but the ceremonies were per
formed one immediately following the
other, by the Rev, H. O. Perry.
The first bride and groom to take
the vows were Miss Ella Nebelsleck
and Mr. Harry Schooler of Genesee.
Miss Ella Nebelseick is a sister of
Miss Emma Nebelsieck of the Fashion
Shop in Moscow, who was in attend
ance at the weddings.
The second happy couple were Miss
Ada Schooler of Genesee and Mr.
Gouis Steltz of near Moscow. Mr. and
Mrs. Schooler will make their home
at Genesee and Mr. and Mrs. Steltz
will live near Moscow.
