.Trial nf n ( liircr Craft In Toronto
* -j liny.
Lawyer Knapp's roller boat was tested In
Toronto bay ten days ago and Its practabll-
ity at least In some measure demonstrated ,
It Is a strange looking craft , eays the Buf
falo Express , and In spite of the confidence
of the Inventor and tho. . man who put up the
money to build the boat , there were few who
believed the ship would "roll. "
It wns towed out Into the bay on Wednes
day , October 20 , and after being cast adrift
began slowly to roll , reaching a speed a !
Bema six miles an hour. The Inventor la
Jubilant , although ho says ho was misled
by the contracting engineers , who Induced
him against his belief to permit them to In-
etall two engines , one at each end of the
eblp , instead of otto moro powerful engine
In the center. When this change is made
ho says the boat will fulfill all claims made
for It. A peculiar result of the strange con-
ntructlon Is that on the speed of the ship In
creases the draught diminishes. When Mm
vessel is rolling at top speed , the Inventor
Claims , It will practically skim the surface
of the ocean , merely fanning the billows
with its etccl flanges. The Inventor Is a
Napanco ( Out. ) lawyer and the capitalist who
put up the money for the demonstration of
Air. Knapp's theory Is George Goodwin , an

upon the number of slilrts he would wear In
a week. Now are the days when ho builds

Miss Anna Gould , It is understood , lhad a
fortune of $15,000,000. Of this sum $4,000,000
wag In her own possession und these millions
she placed at the d-lspos.il of her bonlface.
It Is calculated that ho has spent $2,000,000
a year In Paris ; therefore ho has overstepped

sense of the count's exlravapino to say that
neither William Waldorf Aslor nor Cornelius
Vanderbllt has spent money at one-third ot
The first Intimation do gave of a propen
sity to dazzle the universe was In July last
year when ho hired the Jardln des Acacias
In the inols do Boulogne , built a temporary
pal ) co there and gave a fete do null , This
proved nothing less than an attempt to outdo
Louis XIV and the Klralfy brothers. On the
greensward and through the alleys 60,000 feet
of red carpe.tero laid. Six hundred Ori
ental rugs were strewn In artistic disorder.
The fete was preceded by a gorgeous stoto
dinner of 180 covoro , which was served by 115
waiters , twenty-four powdered footmen In
the Castcllano lively , resplendent and black
satin knickerbockers , with white stockings ;
fifty-two powdered house stewards , In black
coats , white waistcoats and breeches ; thirty
lackeys and nlno doorkeepers to announce
On the lake In thn garden swam a vessel
a miniature of the Venetian Buccntaur
ourrounded by a largo quantity of sea horses
and dolphins. Two operatic and two gypsy
'orchestras were placed respectively In the
palace and on the water. Several hundred
chorus girls of the Grand opera rendered
( xuitomlmo In the style of L'ouls Quatcrzc on
the stage constructed In the pilacc.
Thrco thousand guests were Invited to the
gieat fete and 3,000 glided and upholstered
cbilrs were provided for them. Around the
! ako Iron wlrcn were strung , hung with
flowers and electric lamps. The guests seated
themselves there when tne lake was Illu
The pyrotechnlo display began at 11:30
o'clock. From all sides of the lake the
brlll'ant fireworks burst forth , lighting up
the water and adjacent palaces with its

which gave light when the fireworks ceased.

Tbo Muses next appeared , holding the
symbols of their arts. Then two young
girls descended the double staircase of the
oalaco in whllo dresses ut ancient Greek
lyre and double flute of PAII. A ross-colored
light was thrown on them to typify youth
and hope. They advanced to the terrace on
the border of the lake.
Presently , the calcium was turned on and
a tiumpet of war was heard. More Greek
maidens appeared , this llmo In armor , bear-
Inr swrds end lances.
So the fete went on for hours. It closed
with a final display of .fireworks , about wi'.ilcb.
tlmo rain began to fall , fortunately too late
to mar the fete.
The entertainment cost the Custellancs
400,000 francs. Immediately after U they
gave 10,000 franca to the poor la order ttat
all classes might benefit by their munificence.
In 'the same year that ho gave the great
est entertainment known in Tarls since the
war tbo little count began the building of
a greater palace than.that city has seen arise
unlcr the republic. .Ho dared no less thpn
to reproduce t'je ' Grand Trianon. No Petit
Vrlanon , beloved ot Queen Marie Antoinette ,
was good enough for the husband of Anna-
The site of the new Castcllanc pilaco is
at the corner of the Avenue- 'Bols ' de Bou
logne and the Avenue de Malakoff. Un
doubtedly there Is no finer situation in Paris.
The elle alone cost 4,700,000 francs.
The palace , when completed , will be ac
tually about one-half the size of the Grand
Trianon. Its extreme length will bo 200
feet ; Its front on the Avenue du Bds de
Boulogne 120 feet. The architect Is M. 6am-
The Grand Trlmon Is in the Park of Ver-
t.alllea and was built by Mansard for Louis
XV , whose extravagance and profligacy
brought on the revolution after he was no
longer alive to suffer the Just punishment of
his sins. Louis made It the scene of many
of his orgies.
The unhappy Louis XVI set It apart as a
icsldenco for bis wife , iMnrlo Antoinette who ,
however , preferred the Petit Trianon. The
Grand Trianon was the favorite palace of the
empress Josephine. Napoleon's decree cre
ating the famous continental system waa
dated from the Trianon.
The work on M. De Castellano's Trianon ,
not yet completed , uas cost three times what
ho orlglnilly estimated It would.
The count's capacity for dolug the most
extravagant thing possible must extort n
certain measure of admiration from Amer
icans. He bad. given the biggest fete cud
had begun to build the biggest house.
Then bo bought the biggest yacht afloat.
It waa not only the biggest , but absolutely
the only one of Its class. Ho bought the
Valhalla from Frederick Joseph Laycock , a
rich English banker , who found , the boat tco
rich for him. The Valhalla Is the only
yacht afloat which Is also a full-rigged ship.
She was seen in Now York during the last
International races and carried the exe
crated Dunraven away.
Ho gave $500,000 for her , and she would
have cost $150,000 a year to run. She Is of
1,490 tons displacement , 239 feet long , 37
feet beam ! and Is fitted with triple expansion
engines of 145-borso power. Intended for oc
casional use only. With her heavy spars
and high bulwarks she looks like an old-
tlmo frigate. She carried a crew of 128
men and boys and W.JB . fitted with luxuries
and comforts possible only In a sailing ship
of great size. The principal dining salcon
was 20x37 feet. But the count had martial
blood In his veins and the eca made him
sick , so he sold the Valhalla last week at a
profit. It is said , of $30,000.
But' there arc still men In Franco who do
not offer the glad hand to the little count.
Ho was 'tills spring a candidate for election
at the Jockey club , the most fashionable
club In Paris. It takes ono black bill to ex-
