BERLIN, May 25. (New York World Ca
blegram Special Telegram.) Almost the
cntlro private fortunes of emperor William
nnd empress and other members of tho
royal family of Ocrmany have been swept
oway In tho swindles perpetrated by Com
mercial Councillor Sandon. Tho opera
tions of Sandon suggest tho C20 per cent n
year scheme. Ho Is under arrest, and,
while tho emperor's legal advisors aro en
doavorlng to iletcrmlno tho extent of his
tnaJcsty'B losses, court circles anil cafes
ring with expressions of admiration at the
audacity of tho man who duped tho em
peror by tho flimsiest sort ot chicanery.
As nearly oh can bo learned, Sandon got
away with something like $4,750,000 belong
ing to members ut tho court. His liabil
ities, including claims of tho royal family,
will easily foot up that amount. Ills via
Iblo nesctB In money do not exceed $100,000.
Ills houses, yachts and stables will prob
, ably realize $100,000. So that tho royal per-
eonages who huvu bocn mulcted ot their
prtvntu fortunes stand very llttlo show of
getting oven as much ob ono per cent of
tholr loss. His maJeBty Ib bollcved to havo
lost 13.750.000 through tho operations of
Eanden. Tho empress, whoso private for
timo Ih small, Is said to have bocn swln
died out of $625,000. Tho emperor, who Is
heavily in dobt, has already abandoned
eomo of his projects for upending money,
at which ho Is an adopt. Ills solo prlvuto
fortune now amounts to about $1,000,000 n
f year. A largo part of this, however, will

According to tho gossips In court circles,
tho omperor, who was u great admirer of
tha brilliant Sandcn, wanted to turn over
tho entlro Iron Stock fund, amounting to
125,000,000, to Sandcn In tho hopo of In
crenslng It twenty-fold. Tho Iron Stock,
which In the family fund of tho roynl fam
ily, 1b now Invested In Gtltedgocd secur
ities and In London nnd New York real
estate. If Sandcn had secured control ot
this fund ho would undoubtedly havo been
nblo to carry on his operations for years
without difficulty. Tho rollnpsc of his lly-
tiy-nlght schemo of enriching tho nobility
by promising to pay proposterous rates of
Interest on money entrusted to him for
Investment, was duo to his speculation In
American securities.

Ho was caught In tho Northern Pacific
corner along with n lot ot other Herman
capitalists and IiIb collapse followed. An
examination Into his affairs by some of the
cabinet ministers a day or two ago disclosed
tho naturo and extent of his operations. Ho
wns arrested in his palaco at Potsdam by
Colonel von Moltko. governor of Potsdam,
While ho was entortnlnlng guests nt an elab-
orato dinner. Tho governor ot Potsdam
took tho broker to his library nnd for two
hours questioned him regarding his affairs.
Ho first declnrod ho was entirely solvent
and nblo to return to his clients, Including
tho royal family, all tho monoy entrusted to
him with exorbitant Interest earned by tho
money. At tho ond of two hours Sandcn
confessed that ho wns bankrupt nnd that
tho royal funds had gono with tho money
tntruated to him by tho common people.
"So you dnred to sprculato with tho sav
ings of ray august mistress?" shouted tho
Kitiire AVnnteil Twenty Per Cent.
"How could I help It?" protested Sandon,
'when uho wnnted from 10 to 20 per cent
ton hor money?"
"Uut hl majesty said ho never empow
ered you to put tho royal funds to any hut
legltlmato uses," thundered tho governor.
"Woll," said Snnden, "If tho kaiser was
tatlsfled with 3 per cent why did ho not buy
Prussian consols? I suppose ho thought tho
S per cent consols wcro good enough for
Americans while his money was to te loaned
to tho highest bidders."
