The movements of certnln 'notorious anarchists who are travolltiK to and fro between here and Lon don, coming hero to hold conferences with ncvcral Italians lately arrived from rater son, N. J., are causing great concern to the Paris Rccrct police. Tho French govern ment regards seriously tho stories pub lished recently that there Is a plot to kill every crowned ruler. A high olllclal confided to me that thi ccret service recently secured undnubt.d Information showing that murder missions have really been allotted among the an archists not lean than ten men bring as algned for assassination of each potentate. In order to decrease the chances of tho doomed ruler's escape. The anarchists arc especially anxious to kill the new king of Italy iih hoou as pos sible, believing that If his death followed his father's closely the moral effect would bo such that a revolution might ensue. In connection with these facts Figaro publishes u dispatch from Its Invariably well Informed Ilerlln diplomat correspond ent, saying that since King Humbert's death tho kaiser has been terrorized and his sleep has been troubled with night mares, also that ho now wears a concealed protector of flno ateel mesh, which Is proof against bullet and knife. Other pupcra ascribe the reported In tention of King Leopold to abdicate to ter ror Inspired In him by the absolute knowl edge that aoverat anarchists have been as blgncd to dog his steps until a chance Is offered to kill him. Another monarch who is reported as having his life mado wrotched by fear Is King George of Greece, who can now very Bcldom be induced to go out.

(Ireat uneasi ness is felt In Italian police circles, owing to recent alarmist reports from New York It Is now undoubted that n conspiracy is on foot to murder tho new king and that tho would-bo assassins come from the same I'aterson (N.

The NaplCH police had been notified from New York that twenty dangerous nnarchlsts would land at Naples on August 15 or 16. but In aplto of the most vigorous surveillance no arrest has yet been made It appears that tho anarchists coming over to Europe now havo adopted a completo system of transformation of forged passports, with documents to match, so that the police aro nonplussed. Victor Immanuel Is perfectly aware of tho dangers besetting him. but he bravely defies his foes and says that n king Is unworthy bis crown who cannot risk his ltfo to defend it. Ills only regret as expressed to his former tutor, Ocnernl Oslo, Is that thero Is no direct heir to tho throne, which would evoUually revert to tho duko of Aosta.

Mrs. Williams ngrced to an Inquiry Into the management of tho fund by a commit- too appointed by tho prince of WalcB under threats ot a withdrawal of tho royal patron ago In June. Tho prince, as n result of theso Inquiries, requested Mrs. Williams to make tho members of the Inquiry commit tee members ot her own fund rommlttee pending a possible, reconstruction. Mrs Williams did not. consent. She wroto Sir Francis Knollys, tho prince's prlvato sec rotary, as follows: "Notwithstanding my extreme deference for tho prince and every member of tbo royal family I must ask you to convey to his royal highness that I cannot consent to members of tho inquiry1 committee be coming members of my committee.

Cllfforl. the novelist and playwright, against Sydney Orundy In connection with the hitter's new play, "A Debt of Honor," now being per formed at thij St. James theater by George Alexander's company. Mra. CIlHord'a play. "Likeness of tho Night," was accepted by tho Kendals, but they now decline to produce It. It wna printed last March In Lady Randolpi Churchill's Anglo-Saxon Ilevlew. In both plays the hero Is an ambitious and success ful bnrrlster who makes love to a woman other than his wife. In both plays the great sccno Is where tho wife and "the other woman" meet. In each caso the latier elo quently Justifies her conduct A strange coincidence is that both plays were read to George Alexander two yearn ago. but Mr. (Irundy says that Mr Alex ander r.ald nothing about tho Clifford play. furthermore. Mr. Grundy says ho never read line written by Mrs. Clifford. He explains tho similarity of the plays this way. It a all a matter of waiting with an Idea until tho public Is ready to accept It. 1 vo had the Idea of this play for twenty years. No doubt Mrs. Clifford had it Just as long. You Feo there nre not twenty stories, after all, fit for stage presentation. We aro all working In the samo little potato patch, dig ging It over and over again. When tho public fnncy turns to a ploy of this kind we trot out our Ideas together, and peoplo say, 'What an extraordinary coincidence.' I am sorry for Mrs. Clifford, but 1 don't think she ought to alter her play by a word or a sentence If she had written to me In stead of to the papers I could have written to Mrs. Kendal and urged her to use the play Just ns It stands. Why niter II? All tho critics will say it is a much better play than mine and tho women will ravo over It." Mr. Orundy adds the following opinion of dramatic critics: "Men who write notices of pluyit have no sense of proportion. There Is no such thing as criticism. I have tried It. I did It until I felt myself getting de moralized, then gave It up. A man who goes to n play and writes a column about It tho same night can't criticise it. II Is composing criticism In his head while the play Is going on; framing sentences when he ought to be looking at the play. Let them drop criticism and tell the playgolng people Just whnt happened.'" Oeorgo Alexander admits a remarkable co- Incidence In plotB. but says ho never men tioned ono author's name to another.

As complaints continue to bo filed about tho unsanitary condition of Mini creek tbo city olllclnls arc Impressed with tho neces sity for a sewer extending from the south line ot Swift H property to tho river. Storm water from tho stock yards sewer and lloor washing empty Into this creek and it is as serted that very unhealthy conditions pre vail among tho residents in the southern por tions ot tho city on account of the polluted condition of the water. When similar complaints were made some tlmo ago tho Stock Yards company con structed nn eight-foot brick sewer through Its entire property In order to carry oft surface and storm water, und this sewer la kept lu first class condition, as city olllclnls who have mado a tour through It testify. At the tlmo of this Inspection It was found that refuso from Swift's gluo factory was bo Ing allowed to run Into tho creek. This was stopped and for a tlmo complaints ceased. Following the stopping of tho gluo fnctory refuFe the packers and stock yarda turned a quantity of lye Into tho sewer dally to pur ify It und tho creek nnd this Beemed to be satisfactory to tho residents of tho Second ward. Now cornea a long petition to the council, signed by ninny residents In the southern portion of tho city, und a demand for a sewer will bo mnde. An Impression provnlls that the packers and tho stock yards uro alone to blamo for tho condition of tho creek. In vestigation however shows that this is not tho case. On West Q street thero Is a storm water sewer which empties into Mud creek. Quito a number of sanitary connections have .been mado to ttla tcwcr nnd the refuse, of course, goes down tho creek. H Is not gen erally known that theso sanitary connec tions havo been made with tho storm water sewer, but such Is the caso and tho city Is sewer, but sucli is 1110 caso and tno city is therefore responsible for its share of tho offensive odor which arises from tho creek. ' A sewer properly constructed from tho south end of Swift's property to the river will cost ln tho neighborhood of $130,000. Surveys have been made by tho corporations recently nnd estimates mndo on tho basis of these surveys. It Is thought that If tho city goes at tho matter In the right manner tho packers will contribute quite liberally toward tho construction of a sewer to the rlvor nnd thus do away with all complaints about Mud creek. In speaking of this matter yesterday ono corporation manager paid that he fa vored the building of a hrlck sewer to tbo river nnd would contribute his share to the city to aid tho enterprise. Just what pro portion the packers and stock yards will bo called upon to pay Is not known, this be ing a detail to bo decided upon later. Tho present sanitary sewer to the river is not Inrgo enough for tho constantly Increasing demands nnd the city will soon havo lo furnish relief ot some kind. By tho bulld lilg of an eight-foot sewer the needs of the city would, It Is asserted, be taken care of for years to come. Members of the council will doubtless take this matter up at an early date with a view to settling a problem which has given tho city a great deal pf trouble. .Iiiiikiiiiiiiii Wiiri-uiilM Vol Culled.
