Mhi ster of Justice Brland is re
porter already to have beguni an in
quiry into the case to determine the
truth of the allegation that M. Lei
tett, examining magistrate, enter
tained relations with Mme. Steinhell
which induced him to stifle the affair.
The political opponents of the gov
ernment, like Henri Rochefort, have
been trying to make political capital
of the affair by seening to force an
expoi-ure of the scandal connected
with the mysterious death of Presi
dent of ("resident" Faure In 1899. Al
though hushed up at the time, It was
eonini n knowledge among those be
hind the scenes that Mine. Steinhell
was with Faure at lilysee palace
when Faure died. Some (tapers do
not hedtate to print what they term
the story of the lhuson. According
to these stories Faure had met Mine.

the maneuvres the pear previous to
his death, and she was greatly

Acted Queer at Funeral.1 j
A person who attended Faure's
funeral described to the Associated
Press today how, after the ceremony
at the cemetery, Mme. Steinhell fell
on he:- knees at the grave and placed
a bunch of violets on the coffin.
Then, he said, sobbing she pros
trated herself on the ground, pas
sionately kissing Faure's portrait.
Immediately after this, according to
the same authority, Steinhlll, who
had bo n complacent at the friend
ship existing between Faure and his
wife and who had accepted the le
gion of Honor at the hands of PresI
dent Faure, began proceedings for a
divorce, but through the Intervention
of his family this suit was withdrawn
According to gossip, compromising
papers of some political Importance
Poisoned Faure is Charge,
The antlSemite Libre Parole
charge Mme. Steinhell with having
poisoned Faure. The newspaper re
calls that on the day of the funeral a
writer on the Libre Parole who had
seen Ihe body said: "All the skill of
the er.ibalmer was unable to preserve
the corpse from the dissolvent ac
tion of a subtle poison." The Journal
continues by charging that Chief of
"Ddtctlves Haniard and Magistrate!
Leydett knew the arrest of Mme.
Stelnt.eil was inevitable and would
lead to a raking up of the scandalous
mvEte.-y of Faure's . death, which.
with difficulty had been stifled for
ten years, and accordingly did their
best t'j hush up the present Inquiry.
The newspaper concludes by say
