of hunting and shooting parties , exciting
inns and full b igs come in from all p.uts of
France , and the Vie do Chateau is now in
full swim. The Grand Dukes W Ladimci
and Alexis nnd the Duke do Luehtenburg
still linger In Paris en route for Rlveri.i.
Thej have been hunting at Hannellef with
the buekliounds of the Diiehosso do Useos ,
and yesterday President C.irnot gave a grand
shooting p.u ty in their honor at Ramhoulll.

There was a p. > rliainonlar5 earthquake m
in the ehambes of deputies Thuisday and

Meanwhile Paris is highly excited o\er the
Chnntilly murder alleged to have been com
mitted to defraud a life insurance company
under unusually dramatic ciicumstanccs. At
4 o'clock on the morning of November ! l ,
two peasants going fioin Coio to Cliantilli ,
following tlm lins of railway bordeimg the
forest , saw the body of a man with blond
stained clothes , IjiiiK in a ditch b'-sidc the
rails. There was a deep gash in the throa ) ,
ami several wounds in the chest , made with
a dagger or some sharp instrument. The
clothes wore torn. Truces were found show
ing that theio had been a fear
ful struggle. One of the feet
was completely severed from the
the body. The papers in the clothes of the
muracied man seemed to prove that his
niuno was Ilippoljte Hojos , and it was
under this name that the mutilated remains
were but led by the authorities of Senles. A
few dajs uftcruaids M. C. , an ex-magistrate
mid sceictary of the Phounlx Life insurance
company , found that the llfo of a man named
Hippolyte Iloyos insiiicd in the books
for 100,001) ) francs , payable to a person who
should bo designated by Hoi os in his will.
A man named IJubnis had aflcctod
this insurance. The secietnry of the
Phoenix , lecollectiiig the life insurance
frauds of Van Schotii er and Ur. Castloman ,
ntanccnmdc a thoiough investigation and
found that at several life insurance com
panies applications had also been made to 111-
MIIO the life ot Hippolyto Hovos
ngo n peas ml boy named Luc tncd to insuie
the Hie of Iloyos at the Nulionnlo company.
Again a man named Huct tiled to eflect a
Binnlnr policy on Ilo. olife at the Aigle
company Aftciwauls a mammmed HO.JOS
Figuo picsonted himself at the Franco com
pany to insure the life of his llr t cousin ,
Hippolyto Ho os. The inspector of the
Kraiitu insuianco company called upon M
Iloyos Figuos , who is now believed to bo
the pseudo victim of the crime
at Cliiintilly , and was received by
Him at thoclutcau of Raverolls at Poigny ,
wheio ho was a steward of Comic Raverolls
Iloyos Figuu then declined that his cousin
llippolj te was u woaltln landowner at Chnr-
li cs , but was almost always nbsont "If you
Will appoint a doctor to cxamino my cousin , "
bald ho , "I will notlfi lllppolyto and wo can

npei-tor iimncd Ir Juteau. % few dajs after
wards , by an adioit substitution , Hovos
Flguo was e.xnmlncd medically by Or.
Juteau , who believed the person he
was examining 10 bo Hlppel.\to Hojos.
This | K > licv was however , not concluded , as
the liiHUied had notrendv money enough to
pay the piemium , and these facts aroused
the susplclonsof M. C. , the secretary of the
Pluunlx where the 100,000 francs policy had
been effected , M. C. at once demanded of
the authoiitics at Senles lo exhume the re
mains of the Chantilly victim.
On Monday the iemuins were exhumed In
the presence of all the available persons who
had known Iloyos Figuc , ox steward of
Como do Riivci-ojis , They remembered him
n * a large , stout , muscular man , with
n huge bristling mustache. When the
coflln wns opercd tlio stench nearly caused
nil present to faint. When the ghastly re
mains were levealcd all present stood
nghast. The bed > of the muulered man was
Hinall , emaciated and feeble. Instead of n
bristling uiousiaclie , there was a slight In
cipient down on the lips of the corpse. Kvery
onooxnlalmrdi "No , this la not Hoyos. " On
Tuesday the clothes that had been found
wen discovered ' .o bo much too largo for the
wearer. They bore Die Initials "II. II. "
nnd the address ol n tailor at
ItamboncUo who rooogni'.sd them
us HIC property of Hippolyte , The Ho.tos
tr.ui drror had consequently dressed his victim
in his own clot'ios. ' Tilts b.ul been done before -
fore the crime , for not only the outside
lilolhlm ; , but the linen and underclothing
wcrn also found to bo the property of Hippo.

trousera had been pleated ana sowed so

Iloyos Ho wns confronted witli the Insur
ance agents and wns recognized bi thorn as
the man who , under ihu nnmo of Dubols ,
Iluot mid lloios Flgue , had called at the
various life Insurance companies to Insure
thp life of Hlppoljto Hojos In other words ,
lo insure his own life under another name ,
pnjnblo to himself.
What bafllrs the aulhorlllcs now Is lo find
oul who murdered the innn. It Is discov
ered Hint a Belgian named Baron was
rmplo.vcd by Hoyos ns n sort of scivant.
Huron i& now missing. When last heard
of he wns stopping at the Solell Levant Inn
at Rambonlot , and , strangely enough , ho was
rcgisteied nt the Inn , not in nls own name ,
but In the name of lloios. Hoi os moreover
paid all Ilaron's bills. Hnron was a small ,
emaciated looking man , with n high forehead
mid slight downy moustache. His appear
ance corresponds w ith Unit of the murdered
man exhiimod on Monday at Scales. An
other extraordinary fact is that Huron's right
foot was deformed and It was the light foot
of the body found nt C'hnntllly thnt was
tev 01 cd from the leg. No trace of this missIng -
Ing foot has jet hccn found. From the evi
dence now before the authorities this sensa
tional crime was effected in the following
manner ; lie os had insured his own lite for
100,000 francs , payable to a person name 1 In
his own will whom ho aftei wards personified
and got the money In Harons he found the
instrument to accomplish the purtose.
Under some pretense Huron had been pre
vailed upon to put on his master's clothes.
Letters and papcis belonging to Iloyos wore
placed in Ilaron's pockets Hovos and Haron
then set out on the fatal Saturday night
on their long walk In the Chantilly woods.
Hoiosallnohcd his victim with a dagger.
The wounds In Hie neck prove this , i'hen
there must have been n long nnd desperate
struggle , for drops of blood were scattered
about over n space of twenty live paces
and the clothing was torn. The mur
dered man was placed on the railroad
Hack , so that his right foot would be severed
from the body bi a passing tiain. All the
material elements of the ci line were accom
plished CXIK Uy as the murderer intended but
he did not reckon upon the keen scented
sccictar.v of the Plm-nix Life Insurance com
pany. The scheme was on the veigo of suc
cess , The murderer would have duly pro-
senled himself and gel the money from the
insurance company , just as Ur Castleman
once did in another instance
Now 1'.iris is on the eve of f-till another
sensational trial. Thursday Hoyos and his
mistiess wens brought to Chantilly and eon-
fiontod with the body of the muuleied man.
Thu scene took place in the stable. The
woman , Pique , carried her tour-months old
child in her m ins HO.JOS ttied to eomeal
his featuics by holding his hand before Ins
face when introduced into the presence of
the body of Ins victim , and when asked if ho
i ecogni/ed it , exclaimed :
"Ceitamly , that is H.uon. "
"You miiideicd him , didn't you ? " asked
the judge of instruction.
"Oh , " icplied Hoios , "that is for you to
prove if .vou can. "
Hojos was at once put in jail awaiting
Among six other murders committed din
ing the week , one is worth eablniL' , for it
iccalls a scene in Othello. Lo Hieton , an
anaiclnst oiator , strangled his wife , nn
Alsatian , on Tuesday night at Montrcnil.
People who lived in the same bouse
witli Lo Hrelon were moused in
the dead of night by a wonian's shrieks and
shouts of "Hell ) , he is strangling mo ! "
Hastening to the scene they found Le Urcton
kneeling ou his wife's chest , piessing his
hands qver her mouth. A candle was Ilickcr-
ing on tlio nianllcpiece. Lo li ! < ton , tuiniiiff
to the intiuders , exclaimed :
"You may call as loud us yon please , she
will neither answer nor move "
When ariested he said : "For the Iwo
years tliat wo have been m.irncd I have
never jet been able lo gel Iho better of my
wife in an argument. I have succeeded at
last. "
The contouricres and modistes aie ; still
reaping n golden h.u vest. Ono of the fea-
luies of the now evening di esses is tliat the
bodices me half of one color and half of an
other , the contrast in some cases being car
ried even to the material. A dress of green
muslin de chiffon sprigircd with gold thiead
is draped over a skirt of Iho pilc-st possible
shade of pink satin The bodice is half of
the pale , though vivid , gieen spangled
with gold , and the other half
of satin and silk muslin of
pale pink , the two colors scorning to merge
one into Ihe other in the most inexplicable
way. I saw to day , in the Rue de la Paix , a
magnificent dinner dress of flame colored
velvet t1 mimed with d.nk Russian sable tails
and black and llanut colored tassels This
umbilici superb coloi mg with i iclincss and

Cable to Tin : LJnn.l Cold weather
has come. Yesterday the thermometer
marked 0 = " below the t 'c/ing point. For
tunately there was no snow , and as a con
sequence no interruption of railway traflle.
Skat ing began early In the week. The Vienna
skating club , undoubtedly the Illicit estab

Them is no river or lake skating \vitnin
i each of the capital. Ainateuts will piobably

It ts only latterly that the Austiians cul
tivated skating , which promises to become n
national pastime. In the provincial towns
girls are not nllo\\ed to skate. In

The emperor has gone touttendtho funeral

pioviously arranged. The picsidcnt of the

in speaking of the late duke , allude
to his litcruiy entertainments. Undei the
psuciloiiym of Phantasus ho wiote several
novelletes , poems and plnjs and adapted
Victor Hugo's "Luoicvia ISoigia" HI veiso
for the ( Joriiinn stage. Ho lived in strict ic-
tircment , leading the life of a country gen
tleman. Ho was an accomplished iideraml
passionate sportsman , and utterly indiffeiciit
to politics. His betiovolencj was proverbial ,
and ho was beloved and respected by all who
came in contact with him. He had cclcbiatcd
his golden wedding last summer. His re
mains lie in state at the ducal palace in
Munich and will be deposited to-morrow
in the Attin church till midnight , when thcv
will ho ! n state theio again Monday night till
. " o'clock , when the funeral will take place.
The couit opera and the Hourg theater in
Vienna will bo closed on that evening.
Thursday being the least of St. Leopold ,
was observed as a close holiday throughout
lower Austua. at. Leopold is thopitrou
saint of this piovmcc. Ever since the canon
ization of Margrave Leopold , the Viennese
have been accustomed to go on a pilgrimage
to his sin mo. After performing their devo
tions the pilgrims invaiiably visit the \\ino
cellars beneath the s icred edilice and freely
quench thirst to the memory of their patron
saint. The castle ot Margrave Leo
pold was perched on a piccipitous
mountain , now known as Leopolds-
burg , overhanging the lordly Danube ,
within an hour's drive of Vienna. Leopold
and his \\ifis , the inaigravin , weto icnowned
for their piety , and immortali/ed themselves
uy founding many uionasteiies and convents ,
the largest of which is Klostcrmiburg. The
crown of St. Leopold is plated on the head of
every Ausuiau empeior at his coionation ,
The Vienna bouise , owing to the unfavora
ble news recaived fiom all ( tors , was
veii Hat today. A saimoDluiil Russian
tologiaphio agency represents the new or-
gani7.ition of the Russia ar.ny as meiely
falling back of two divisions of
lulaiitry and one division of cavalry from
the east to the west empire , but the
potent facts leave no doubt that the real
movement is the reverse of this semi onioial
attempt to disguise the real eh ir.ivtor. The
changes just ordered in the Russian army
canhiidly fail to inci ease the bad impression
cieated in Germany and Austria by the
latest military disposition * of Russia , which
a few days ago I cabled to the Herald.
Hitherto the Austrian press has abstained
from discussing the new Russian army
organizations , their reticence being mainly
due to the fact that Count Kalnoky happened
to be absent from Vienna when the
Russian general order was promulgated.
F.vcn after the foreign minister's retuin the
papers neie hesitate to take up the subject ,
which is a bad symptom. Matters Imvo ad
vanced so far that every move on the part of
the Russians la instantly reported to the in
telligence department of the capital , with
the icsult that a corresponding countermove
Is made on the Austrian side. As a matter
pf eomse , this inodo of procedure is usual
only in cases when the conviction Is enter
tained that fin tliur wai nlngs are. of no avail ,
and things must bo allowed
to take their course ; and this ,
In fact , appears to bo the Impression
pic-vailing in the loading circles In Vienna.
At last night's performance nt Ronachcr's ,
the largo now cafe , the concert was inter
rupted by what is icpreseiited by some to
have been nil accident , and by others an at
tempted hiilclde , I''or some time past a South
Ami'i lean tight rope dancer named Caicedo
has been engaged there , and ono of the
principal attractions of the place. It was his
last performance , as ho wns engaged for Lon
don. His wife had recently given signs of jeal
ousy , and yesterday , shoitly before the day
performance , she rushed nt him with a
knlfo and wns prevented with diniciilty from
injuring him. Caicedo succeeded , however ,
in getting through his work as usual , not
withstanding the emotion ho had gone
through , but In the Interval that elapsed till
ho uppeurod again in the evening he lost his
nerve and told the personnel of the estab
lishment thnt there would be something
worth scelufc' at night. The rope on which
Caicedo performed was stretched across the
stage at a height ) ! of fifteen feet , and there
was no safety net underneath It. It was ob
served that when Caicodo began his perform
ance ho omitted the usual stop * and walked
oaiolessly along the rope until , ou teaching

Los DOS , Xov IT [ New York Herald
Cable Special to Tin : Hru.l A speech do-
llveicd by Lord Randolph Churchill this
afteinoon must give rise to much discus
sion , especially in icspeet to its al
lusions to Americans. It was delivered
to an immense audience amid great demon
strations of approval No public man of
eminence in Cngland has over before taken
up so distinct and bold a line concerning
the lel.itions between England and the
United States Of general tnlk about amity
and good will there has been enough , If not
too much , but Lord Randolph is the first
statesman who has substituted sound princi
pies for empty palaver , and indicated : i
couiso which can nlona secure permanent
good will between the two countiies. He
bodly aflirms Lord Sac'fvillo ' committed an
unpardonable blunder , and that his iccall by
his own govcinment should have been
prompt. With still gi eater cour
age and wisdom , ho denounces the
proposal to keep the United States
without an Knghsh minister , as weak and
vindictive and dangeious It will not bo dif-
ikult foran.\ono who remembers Lord Salis
bury's recent speech at the Mansion house ,
to divmo what Churchill meant by his
caustic allusion to a policy of "sneois and
sulks" Salisbuiy rather more than in
sinuated that President Cleveland had
been turned out because he turned
out Lord S.ickville. The prime minister
takes an eccentric view of Ameiicnn poli
tics , which is only natural , considenng that
he never htudiedthoui. To suppose , however ,
that Americans rose up in indignation against
Cleveland because he was somewhat brusque
towards Saekville , shows a degree of
simplicity and credulity scarcely to
be looked for in u professed cynic. It is
satisfactory to llnd thnt at a time u hen the
Standard and other papers , have been woik-
iniro hard to stir up u bitter feeling towai d
the United States. An immense meeting of
the working classes should be willing to
listen to such words of truth and soberness.
The lesson of LoiU Randolph's remarks will
not be lost upon the country , and it is toler
ably safe to predict tint the house of commons
will not allow thaiu1to be lost on the min

Hum iv , Nov. 17. The cmpeioi's sjiecch
nt the opening of the reichstag on Thursdiii
Is awaited with nn exciting Inteii'st. ailsing
from the revival of the war aim in. The olll-
clal opinion is that , although no unusual
pomp will attend the ceremony , the eripcior
will open the reichstag In peison. If the
tone of the semt-olllcial press were the
guide , the speech would plainly remind the
Germans that they should be on the aleit ,
menaced us they are by powcifnl militaiy
neighbors on both sides. Hut tliu semi olll-
clal picss do not this time icpicbcnt tne olll
cial opinion There certamlj is some lost
lessness in high circles and uneasiness in
llnancuil nimrteis , but it will sin prise both
If the emperor's speech does not tend
to icassuie them in regard to his p.ieillc in
tentions. It will allude to the results of the
Imperial policy in cementing the trip.ntite
alliance , and will piobably be suffused
throughout with a spirit of optimism which
ought to extinguish the new wai scare. It
will otherwise bo rather barren of interest
Allusions will be made to the aimy and nu\i
iidministiation , colonial development and the
Hismarck-Salisbury agi cement in regard to
the suppicssioii of the slave ti.ule. Some
projects of important internal bearing will
(111 ( up the measuie of imperial refeiences.
The reichstag will Hist appoint a piesidont
to succeed U.iron Wedell Pliesdorf , who will
be made minister of the icjal household on
thcad\entof the emperor. Heir Von Lev-
ct/ow , who filled the office from IbSl to IMS I ,
will probably bo his successor. Herr von
Lcoet ow is now landes diicctor of the piov-
ince of Hrandenburg. He is a conservative ,
and left a line record for capacity as presi
dent during the years ho tilled the oflliv.
The prospects are that the session will bo
pacific and uneventful. Hrisk party en
counters mo likely to occur over the colonial
policy , the progressionists and socialists com
bining in hostile criticism. The center will
join witli the nationalists and conservatives
in support of the Koveinmcnt , espccmlli in
relation to the siave trade blockade.
Tne new Hussinn loan is fast raising dis
content among the Geiman bourses. The re
ports of an alliance between France , Russia
and Spain , and rumors ol Russian troops on
the fiontiers of Germany , aio phenomena
which are associated with the Russian loan.
Another tripartite alliance agahiht the Cen
tral Uuropean alliance of Germany , Austria ,
and Italy has not yet been achieved , but it is
aimed in Minister Goblet's speech before the
chamber of deputies in defense of the Vat
ican. The speech was meant to allure Cath
olic Spain toward a sympathetic neutrality ,
if not in actual alliance , with Trance. The
Heilin foreign ofllco is quite alive to the
glowing understanding between France am1
Spain , but an eventual alliance of the two
countries is deemed very improbable.
In icgnrd to the movements of Russian
troops , the Cologne G.uHto in u semi ofll-
cial communication , says : "Tliescope of the
new Russian military orders can not bo
accurately known until war expoits
having clear data on the matter , pronounce
upon it. Tlio reasons published at St.
Petersburg for the redistribution of the
army feebly try to conceal the tinth , but in
Berlin they are estimated at their ti no value.
Tlio fact that Russia is pushing ficsh divi
sions toward the frontier of Germany de
mands keen attention , although men of busi
ness need not discover in those movements
any immediate threat against European
peace. " Other papers show the same un
easiness , although they concur m consider
ing it impiobablo that Russia will openly
hasten forward her war prep irations at tlio
very moment she is appealing for a now
loan. Nevertheless , the money market does
not like to sco Hussia borrowing money.
The bourse in Paiis does not consider the
loan an unmixed evil , since it arranges to
use one-third of the whole amount for con
version This fact modules the hostility to
the loan in Herlin. Still , no subset iption list
will be opened in Hcilin nnd Frankfort. On
the contrary , the semi oflicial press advises
investors to unload on Pans. It Is hoped

piopelled to tno thud floor. Upon arriving

escaped from the lips of Mr. King , who at

While waiting outside the door , Mrs. King
slipped to the elevator and i em.u ked to tlio

She walked restlessly to nnd fie in the

Mr. King shut the door suddenly and for u
