rv LIVING IN NEW YORK. If Woman's Claim Can Ba Established a Contest Will Be Made Prince Ru dolph and Mane Vetssra War Found Mysteriously Shot In Austria In 1889. New York. Out of the confusion that lias arisen from the assassination of Francis Ferdinand, heir to the Aus trian throne, and bis morganatic wife, the Duchess of Bohenberg, arises the Interesting report that a-small boy, now being educated in the United States, will lay claim to the throne of Austria. This boy Is Rudolph, son of Mrs. Alma Vetsera Hayne, who Claims she is the daughter of Crown Prince Ru dolph and Marie Vetsera, who were found dead together In a bunting lodge at Meyerling, Austria, In 1888. Mrs. Huyne, who murried a Cana dian stockbroker, George Osborne Hayne, and subsequently divorced him, has persisted that she is the offspring of the morganatic union of Prince Ru dolph and Marie Vetsera, and she nam ed her son .after the man she claims for her sire. The probability of formal claim now being made to the Austrian succession on behalf of this boy Is all the stronger because of the persistence with which the aged emperor of Austria contends for an unbroken line of Hapsburgs. When Crown Prince Rudolph con tracted his morganatic marriage be forced him to renounce all claim to the throne, offering the succession to bis own brother, Carl Ludwlg. When Lud- Photo by American Press Association. UBS. HAVNB AND SON RUDOLPH. wig declined the honor the succession was passed along to the letter's son, Francis Ferdinand, who was slain the other day. When Francis Ferdinand contracted bis morganatic marriage the emperor made him renounce all right to the throne for bis possible heirs. His death. Mrs. Hayne uow believes, opens the way clearly for the claims of her son, Rudolph, and there is every rea son to believe that she Intends push ing them. Mrs. Hayne Is a beautiful Austrian and came to this country for the first time about twelve years ago. She as serts that she Is the child of the tragic love affair which resulted in the deaths of Prince Rudolph und Mnrie Vetsera. She snys her husband often declared that she was the "truest of all the Hapsburgs." On June 5 Mrs Ilnyne returned to this country and told several of the pas sengers aboard the liner that she bad decided to renounce her title of Prin cess Vetsera aud that she expected to live in America so that she might edu cate her son in the way she wishes. "I don't want to live any more on the other side." she declared. "There are too many unhappy associations with Europe for me. I am building a home In New York, and 1 intend to make a home that 1 can enjoy In the real sense." This woman has had rather a roman tic life, especially since ahe first came to the 0 nited State. After being wooed by many suitors she finally mar ried George Osborne Hayne In Toron to In 190?. but three years later Hayne sued for divorce, uaming Justin B. McDougall. son of a Canadian capi talist. This trouble, bowever, came to an end when MrUougall'a father bad blm arrested, and he was later put in an Insane asylum. When Hayne beard of this be hurried to New York to effect a reconciliation with his wife. Spiteful. Dear Creature (speaking metaphori cally!
