He has a serious internal malady hlch
cannot be surgically t rented, and it makes
htm nervous and Irritable. All effort! to
muse him fall. The prince of Wales gave
up trying to entertain him and went to
visit Lord Rlpon In the country. Princo
Arthur of Connaught, only a lad, is now
showing the shah around. The entertain
ments provided for the Oriental potentate
are mainly of a juvenile character, Includ
ing the Empire Music hall, the hippodrome
circus, Mme. Tussaud's wax works and the
Crystal Palace fireworks display.
The shah does not conceal his disappoint
ment that be has not been dining In com
pany since he arrived. This aloofness Is
partly due to his illness. The court circu
lar Insinuated that be attended a dinner
In his honor at Buckingham palace given
by the prince of Wales, representing the
king, but the shah was not there. He did
not attend the official dinner given by Lord
Lansdowne as the foreign minister, and
ven at the Persian legation be lunched
alone in a separate room.
Too Speedy for Htm.
The shah Is morbidly nervous, and espe
cially while traveling. When he went to
Portsmouth to meet the. king he stopped
the train three times because It was going
too fsst for him. It was running twenty
three miles an hour. On the third stop
page a railway oraciai remarked iu luw
tone to the newspaper men: "It this Is
too fast for htm he had better get out
and walk." The shah's moroseness did not
wear oft aboard the royal yacht until he
met the queen, with whom he conversed
In comparative calmness. . He also ap
peared interested when Princess Victoria
anapshotted blm. He has only been seen
to smile ones while here. That was when
he suddenly found hlmaslt face . to face
with bis own effigy In Mme. Tussaud's wax
works exhibition. Hs made soma comment
in the Persian tongue, which caused his
ulte to laugh, but they- declined to inter
pret It The visit will end officially to
morrow, hut as the English channel la
rough the shah will not cross to Calais,
hut will wslt at Dover for a smooth sea.
He is not likely to repeat his visit.

Is having extensive alterations made to her
house In Paris. 8 he tells how she was sum
moned from Berlin to dance for the shah

the waters before he went to London. The
shah wanted to have every trick of the color
lighting explained to him and boldly fum
bled among the folds of her dancing skirts,
to ascertain how the tiny electric bulbs were
arranged, until the dancer manifested an
noyance. Mile. Lole says tha stories of his
gifts of splendid gems must be falsehoods,
for, sside from her fee, which wss paid by
tbo grand vizier, the shah only offered her
a bix of the poorest sort of candy.
The shah Is expected to arrive her Mon
day with his suite of seventy-five persons
and to remain until September 10. He
wants a summer residence in Paris. Kara

Mr. Mayor, and You, My Fellow Cltlsens:
I thank you for the greeting you have
given me and for the chance of seeing you
this morning. I have greatly enjoyed pass
ing through your beautiful state. I wel
come the opportunity of meeting you and
your representatives. I think that It Is an
advantage to all of us who were trying to
put your purpose ami wlshea into effect In
the national legislature and adminUtratlon
when we tan come Into touch with you per
sonally. I have taken the chance to try, now that
congress is not In session, now that there
Is a holiday at the national capital, of
going through the country to see you, my
fellow cltlsens. I am obliged to you for
coming out here.
Last night, in Hartford, I spoke of two
or three questions which we now have be
fore our people. I shall not try to make
any address to you today. This nstlon has
great problems to face, problems in its ex
ternal policy, problems even more Impor
tant In the administration of its Internal
affairs. We can solve them only If with
serious purpose we set ourselves to the
tuiik alike in the national and state gov
ernments and In the local municipality and
county organizations. We have great

POLICE PROMPTLY ARREST MURDERER
After Being Lodged la City Jail
Christiansen Does Not Seem to
Realise the Gravity of the
Craied by Jealousy and drink, Antone
Christiansen murdered his wife about 4
o'clock yesterday afternoon by shooting her
with a thirty-eight-caliber revolver. He
fired four shots. Tbe second struck her In
the left eye and the third In the back,
immediately below the left shoulder blade.
Death was instantaneous. Christiansen was
arrested a few mlnutea after the shooting
and lodged In the city Jail. The body of
the murdered woman waa removed to the
rooms of the coroner.
The tragedy occurred In a room occupied
by the couple on the second floor of the
Montgomery hotel at 1421 Dodge street
and was the culmination of frequent quar
rels between them.
Yesterday afternoon Christiansen re
turned home intoxicated and began to quar
rel with Mrs. Christiansen. During the
progress of this Christiansen was heard to
remark to his wife that her "time waa
abort." A few momenta later, while the
two were In the room alone, ahota were
heard. Ida Mangusen, a chambermaid at
the hotel, rushed Into the atreet and gave
the alarm. The police were aummoned,
but before they arrived Christiansen had
left the room wherein he had killed hla
wife and locked himself In a bath room on
the aame floor.
Son Helps at the Arrest.
John Christiansen, their son, who had
left home's abort time before the ahootlng,
returned to the house at the aame time
the police arrived and saw hla father In
the bath room, through a window which
pB'J onto ths r?o? ef an s5'o!s'5s
lng. He Informed the police and Officers
Vanoua and Flynn rushed to tha window
and Captain Mostyn to the door of tbe
room. Christiansen had locked the door,
but aa the officers started to enter through
the window, he made a rush for the door,
unlocked It, and waa grabbed by Captain
Mostyn. He then threw hla hand to hla
hip pocket, aa though to draw a revolver,
but tbe captain caught the hand. Chris
Hansen then surrendered and banded the
revolver to the captain, quietly remarking:
-This la the gun."
The body ot the murdered woman waa
found lying face up across tbe bed, the
feet resting on the floor. By her side on
the bed waa a wash bowl, which she had
in her hand when the ahootlng was done.
Blood waa flowing from the wound In her
face and she lay In a crimson pool which
came from the wound In her back. Chris
tiansen had anapped hla revolver at her
four times. The first charge failed to ex
plode, the second atruck her in the eye,
and aa she reeled and started to fall he
Bred again, this charge striking her In
the back. Aa she fell acrosa the bed he
snapped his revolver sgaln, but this
charge tailed to explode.
Christiansen Is Stolid.
After being taken to the police atatlon
Christiansen expressed no concern or re
gret over the shooting. When he was In
formed that hla wife waa dead he aald
he did not believe it. After he had been
convinced that aha waa dead he aald noth
ing, nor did he show any Indication that
he cared. He waa thoroughly 'sober by the
time he reached the station and told of the
murder of hla wife calmly and without
"I waa in her room," he aald, "when
she came In to dress. I apoke to her and
she answered me insultingly. I then drew
my revolver and anapped it at her, but
It did not explode. The next charge ex
ploded and it atruck her. She reeled, and
aa she fell, with ber back toward me, I
shot again and I auppose I hit her in the
back. I am not sure whether I shot a
fourth time. I did not think that I killed
The revolver used waa a 88-callber ham-
merleaa and waa purchased by Christian
sen In South Omaha last Thursday, though
he stated that at the time be bought It he
had no Idea of killtnk hla wife.
Stormy Family Life.
Christiansen Is 40 yesrs of age and hla
wife waa 35. Tbey had been married nine
teen yeara and had one aon aged IS yeara.
They resided In South Omaha for about
fourteen years snd then removed to Omaha.
Those who know them say their married
life has been a atormy one and their quar
rels frequent, and much more ao of late,
owing to Christiansen's Jealousy and to the
fart that he was drunk almost constantly.
May 1 last, with Christiansen's spprovsl,
Mrs. Chr'stlansen and Charles Krug rented
the Montgomery hotel snd Mrs. Christiansen
was installed as landlady, she and Krug to
divide the proceeda ot the house. At reg
ular intervale abe and Krug met and aet
tled tbelr accounta. This made Christian
sen more Jealous and .on a recent occasion
when he-returned home and found hla wife,
Krug and Ida Mangusen In a room to
gether, settling accounts, he threatened to
kill Mrs. Christiansen. For some time Mrs.
Christiansen has been in poor health and
during )it week she hsd been under the
care of a physician. All this time, hla aon
and the. roomers at the hotel said, Chris
tiansen was brutal to hla wife and had fre
quent quarrels with her. Saturday after
noon the aon waa present when the two be
gan to quarrel, but was sent on an errand
by hia mother. He aald that he knew his
father had a revolver Friday and that he
and hla mother hsd spoken of having him
arrested, but did not.
Inquest Prosinbly Monday.
Mrs. Christiansen waa a alster of Michael
Mlnlkus, a aaloon keeper at 1001 Pierce
street. It is probable that an Inquest will
be held cn ber body Monday morning. Chris
tiansen Is a carpenter and at one time
wae employed by the Union Pacific Rail
road finpany. He has a sister living in
OmcV: End a brother !n South Omaha.
