( Copi/r/u/il / / ISS3 l > u Jamcd Gordon HcnncU. ]
PAIIIS. April 2 ! ) . [ New Vork Herald
Cable Special to TUB Br.n.1 The cm-
press of Austila , accompanied by the Arch
Duichcss Marie Valnrie , is nt present in
Wiesbaden. For porno tlmo , it lm.ibccn |
rumored that her majesty wns suffering from
an incurable disease , but what the nature of
the disease was bus hitherto not been spcclj
lied. The Flguro now asserts that It re
ceived the following Information from
sources on which the utmost reliance can bo
placed : "It is true , " says this Journal ,
"that the enipx-oss of Austria is nt
Wiesbaden , but it also is true that
she inhabits a villa quite outsldo
the town nnd that police agents guard all the
approaches to her house. This Is because
the unfortunate empress is subject to the
same mental malady by which her cousin ,
King Louis of Bavaria , was visited. She
will see no one. It is not merely since the
death of Archduke Rudolph that the Em
press Elizabeth has been affected. Thu
symptoms showed themselves fourteen years
ago In a craving for continual movement and
various hallucinations. During the last cen
tury there huvo been twentv-seven cases of
Insanity in the Bavarian royal family. The
present king is a lunatic and several of his
relatives have been attacked by the same dis
ease. For years her majesty never passed
a night at the royal palace at Vienna ,
and she used to fancy tlfat she
was pursued by the spectre of Murla The
resa. After the death ot Louis II of Ba-
varm the hallucinations to which the em
press is subjected have assumed ono special
character. She fancies that King Louis ap
peared before her and that water ( lowed
down his garments In such volume as to en
danger her life. She used to scream out for
help nnd then become Insensible. Her last
year's stay at Corfu did her majesty much
good , In fact who endured but ono crisis
there , fancying that she was called upon to
enter a convent. This Idea cave way to a
monomania for Heine , and she made a jour
ney to Hamburg for the solo purpose of
seeing a portrait of the poet. When
the empress learned of the death of Archduke -
duke Rudolph the now hallucination took
possession of her that she was her son's
murderer. Her majesty's disease assumed a
violent character. When the court moved to
Pcsih she would not sco her physicians , and
clothed herself in ecclesiastical vestments
and refused to take food , and her attendants
were obliged lo fasten her hands. At pres
ent , concludes the Figaro , the acute stage of
the disease has passed , leaving ajuotable soft- '
cuing of tlio brain. The case is inoro or less
hopeless. . _ _

LINCOLN , Nob. , April 21. [ Special Tele
I gram to THE BEB.I The citizens of Koya
I I Palm county propose to rid that country of
the pang of cattle and horse thieves that
have been Infesting northern Nebraska for
the past four or more years. G. H. Rogers
and John Blvcrs , of Sprlngviow , were in
' conference with Governor Thnyor during
the entire afternoon and evening working
upon a plan that will loud to the accomplish
ment of this end.
It scorns that the honest law-abiding citi
zens of that part of the state have grown
desperate. They put It strongly. They say
that neither their property nor their lives
nro safe under the present condition
of affairs. Affidavits wcro submitted
to the governor that leave no
. shadow of xloubt that horse nnd cattle
' thieving has been carried on to an alarming
extent in that and neighboring counties.
Horace , Stuart , n former member of the
gang , makes nftldavit fixing the Identity of a
number of the leading members of the law
less band. The Information ho furnished
the governor is so startling that the latter
has concluded to visit that nnd neighboring
counties for the purpose ; of inquiring into
the situation from every standpoint , and ho
will leave for thorn in n day or two.
. The gang operates without fear of law ,
and this is what makes the situation so ex
asperating. It Is learned that the thieving Is
done on tha Indian reservation , thus putting
the criminals beyond the jurisdiction of
either the state or federal courts , and they
laugh at every effort that has been made to
bring thorn to Justice. This led to the or-
eanl/ation of the farmers' protective asso
ciations , or vigilance committees , for self-
protection. As thu gang puts it , "anti-
vlgilunco" committees Imvo been organized ,
, und the country is kept in a constant furore
of agitation. Some of the members of the
band arc said to bo men of wealth , and they
have friends of position and influence to do
all they can to protect them from summary
vengeance. They ti'll the story there that
the governor has promised to protect them
with the state militia. This hus kept the
protective association inactive for some
time , but the constant thieving , threats and
and clamors led to the visit of Messrs.
Rogers nnd Blvens , who have put the matter
properly before the governor , and ho gave
them the outspoken assurance that no
militia or other body of troops would bo sent
into that or any other country to protect and
' strengthen lawlessness. This was the
special assurance that the gentlemen sought.
The gang numbers over fifty , wno are grow
ing rich at the expense of the honest home
steader and stock raiser.

BASSETT , Nob. , April 24. [ Special Tele
gram to TUB Bnn.1 The rccanvass , to-day , of
the votes cast in Rock county for county seat
at the election on January 29 , gives the
county seat to Bassett by a majority of thir
ty-one. Recent developments show such
stupendous fraud on the part of Newport , at
the election hold In that town that It is gen
erally conceded by the pcoplo of the county
that a contest of the election , if instituted ,
will result in giving Bassett about twice the
majority which she now has. Positive evidence -
denco is now collected which will prove flf ty-
seveu out of the 1H9 votes cast in tlio precinct
of Nowpoit uro illegal , and a careful canvass
of the county shows that there must huvo
been nearly seventy such votes cast. There
is therefore no question as to whether the
permanent county scat is at Bassett. It is
and will stay there.

CHICAGO , April 24. [ Special Telegram to
TUB BEK.I There was renewed interest in
the Carter divorce case , to-day , when the defendant -
fondant , Leslie Carter , was placed on the
stand , nnd In a manly , straightforward way ,
tola the whole history of his married life ,
nnd denied all tbo charges brought against
him , Ono feature of the proceedings was
the way In which the witness silenced Mrs.
Carter's chief counsel , Judge Smith , who has
n great fondness for bullying witnesses on
the stand. Carter has n singularly rapid way
of speaking , and runs his words togclhcr in
n way which Is confusing lo nu old person
llko Judge Smilh. When Mr. Carter said ho
believed Mrs. Carter did write loiters homo
to her mother , Judge Smith stopped htm nnd
bawled out :
"What.1 , !
"I boilovo she did , " shouted Mr. Carter ,
with a. plainness of articulation and rapidity
of utterance and loudncss of volco , com
bined with n certain polntcdiiRss of gaze ,
which made Judge Smith lower his head
as a turtle does when ono throws n stick at
his shell. This experience was repeated once
or twice , nnd Judge Smith's discomfiture
was BO apparent that a gcntlo laugh wont
round the room. As the News puts It ,
"Judgo Smith's expression was that of a
man who had inadvcnturcdly boon the target
of the garden hose in full operation , and ho
paid 1 strict attention thereafter. " The wit
' ness said that Iho onlydisagrccmcntbolwccn
the two during the wedding trip was n
dlfTei enco of opinion nbout going to Newport
instead of to Washington. This had not
oven thn complexion of u discussion. Mr.
Carter distinctly said that no unpleasant or
Offnnsivo conduct occurred.
"Everything was perfectly happy ! " asked
"Certainly , sir , perfectly happy , " replied
Ho then gave n detailed narrative of their
stay in Boston , mentioning the picture galleries -
leries they visiied , the churches they at
tended and the visit to Cambridge and the
colleges. The two wcro together almost all
the time. This contradlclcd Mrs , Cartor'8
story Hint she was virtually a solitary pris
oner. Ho spoke of meeting Mr. John S.
Perry at the depot in Albany , to which city
they had gone at the instance of Mrs. Car
ter , who wished to attend the commence
ment , exercises nt n school there , u Mrs.
McMahon's daughters being among the
graduates. They next went to the Prospect
house at Kaatskill , where they wcro Iho
only guests , and , the most of
their time was put in in driving ; thence to
Now York , and so on , with the route. They
dined out once ut the house of Mr. Curler's
sister , once at the house of Henry W. Mcr-
rlam , They went to the theater several
times , and still all was sereno. They went
to purchase n carriage and then household
glassware , and finally a turquoise 'and dia
mend rinjr , .which cost a little over $100.
This ho gave his wife for a birthday present.
The drift of-all this was to show that it was
veritably a honeymoon. Explaining the
relationship of Miss Margaret Carter , Mr.
Carter said that his mother died when ho
wus a boy cloven years old , and his father
died in 1573. Miss Carter had como from
Scotland to take charge of the household
after his mother died. When Leslie and
Mrs. Carter came to the house on the bridal
tour ho was positive nothing unpleasant oc
curred. Ills relatives made constant efforts
to entertain her while ho was uwuy ut his

Partial Drop of Sunday Frciuhl XraiiiH
on the Vandei-bilt Systoni.
NEW YOIIK , April 24. [ Special Telegram
to THE BEE. ] All the Vanderbilt roads cast
of Chicago will , on May 1 , abandon a.great
proportion of the Sunday freight trains.
Even next Sunday fewer trains than usual
will run. "For a year past , " said President
Chauncey M. Depew , "Mr. Cornelius Van-
dcrbllt has been urging n change. The presi
dents of the Vanderbilt roads hold monthly
meetings , and at the meeting : which preceded
Vanderbilt's departure for Europe , on March
30. it was decided to make the experiment ,
for mat is what it is. It is not proposed to
stop all Sunday trains. The change affects
the freight business only , although wo have ,
already succeeded lu curtailing u number of
Sunday passenger trains by giving up ex
cursions , and In other ways. It is not possi
ble , of course , for us to stop all Sunday
freights. There nro certain kinds of freight
which must bo moved. Wo can not lot per
ishable goods rot on the road. Cattle and
other like stock must bo cared for and for
warded , nnd certain market trains can not
bo abandoned. If some of our trains did not
get to this city , on Monday morning , there
would bo n fumino here ; that Is , you know ,
n fumino of eomo things. Wo expect to roj
duce the number of men employed In the
Sunday tralllc by from 3 : ) > ; f to 50 per cent. "
"Aro the reasons for this action religious
or economical , or both ? "
"Almost purely religious , although wo do
expect that it will improve the morals of the
men and give thorn more tlmo nt homo. The
latter Is , however , going to boudinicult mat
ter to iix ; that is , to nrrnngo it en that
freight crows will bo ut homo at the end of
the Saturday run. "
"Aro you In favor ol the change , and who
also bee Ides Mr. Vanderbilt wanted Itf "
"I am In favor of it , and so were nearly all
the presidents. The most serious trouble is
to arrange it. Wo can't refuse to receive
.freight from connecting roads , nor can wo
afford tirioso one day's ' business in the week ;
that woula rufa us , "
"But the men will havfl to ! "so ono-seventh
of their income , will they not ! Are "not tlio
freight crows paid by the run ! "
"Yes , they ore BO paid , and , of course ,
they will lese Just so much monov , but the
mm have repeatedly said that they did not
want to work on Sunday. Now wo will take
them at their word. Perhaps they may netlike
like it. I have known such cases. They
clamor for a theory , but they realize u con
dition , "
Doiiew said the change would affect all the
Vamlorbilt roads cast of Chicago , of
"It would bo much easier to accomplish If
the roads west of there could bo biought In ,
but that is impossible. Tlio Luke Shore &
Michigan Southern is so surrounded by com
petition thut it would lose half its business
If we should try It there , and wo can't afford
that , you know. "
Ho said that the clmngo would make the
business of the roads redhoton Mondays
and Tuesdays , und thut It would nccuHsltulo
greater yard facilities ull along the road , as
well as , perhaps , a lafger number uf cars ,
'ihe roads would try , he said , to _ pet along
without employing any additional crows ,
