PARIS. 8ept. 27. (New Tork World Ca
blegramSpecial Telegram.) The World
correspondent today met In Paris a prom
inent roemb r of the Belgian government.
This man, although absolutely devoted to
King Leopold and the royal dynasty, wu
rnoet pessimistic as to the future of the
royal household.
"The king," he said, "made a deplorable
mistake In bis attitude toward Countess
Lonyal. The Incident will yet prove bis
undoing. The public protest has been tem
porarily subdued on account of the sol
emnity of the circumstances, but the In
dignation of the people still rankles, and, as
la will be judiciously fanned by King
Leopold's enemies, It will soon burst Into
auch a storm that the king's abdication
will be unavoidable within six months.
Possibly Prince Albert will then be allowed
to ascend the throne, but a graver revolu
tion Is more likely, which will result In the
establishment of a republic,
"King Leopold has lately grown Intensely
unpopular. His supercilious detachment
from the affairs of the kingdom, his con
tinuous escapades In Paris and Nice, his
curious financial manipulations In connec
tion with the Congo state, his practical
abandonment of the queen. Oven after ber
physicians hsd warned him that she was
doomed, his cruelty to Princess Louise of
Coburg and now to Countess Lonyal, to
gether with the surrender of all his power
Into the1 bands of the reactionary clerical
party, have finally rendered King Leopold's

middle classes. The aristocracy alone,
whose privileges run with his, support him.
"The king, however, will not be surprised
or displeased when an abdication la wrought
from hlra. He has long looked forward to
the possibility of enjoying his Immense
fortune In freedom. Most of his money la
now Invested In Prance, England and
America. He la. now building a fine resi
dence In Paris and Is all ready to mors
out of Belgium.
"However, It he finds the movement la
likely to dispossess his cherished nephew.
Ktug Leopold may shew fight, in which
case the conflict between the army and
the people will bo a bloody one, whose
result no one can foresee.".
Of All the Wonderful Thins Ho
Thinks Reporter the Most
(Copyright, 1903, by Press Publishing Co.)
PARIS, Sept. 17. (New York World
Cablegram Special Telegram.) Paris now
possesses two picturesque Russian grand
dukes. The first Is Boris, who Immediately
upon his arrival at Havre gave several
amusing Interviews. The gist of these
talks was that the American newopapere
were Irrepresslbly enterprising and surely
constitute the greatest curiosity In the
t'nited State. He declares that Ameri
can society' Is delightful and American
progress is so stupendous tbat It should
be considered as an ever-present prob
lem for every European nation.
About the reporters, Boris aald: "If
you talk to him one minute about the
weather the next day he prints a whole
column about your love affairs. It you
. nlmply shake hands, remaining perfectly
dumb meanwhile, he will print two
columns. If you refuse to see him at all
you expect a full page of mixed dialogue
and life sketches. 81nce ordinary cham
pagne drinking was not picturesque enough
for them, they represented me gulping It
from a dainty chorus girl's slipper."
All of this Boris calls amusing.

Hotel Rtts with Mme. Pistolkors, ths
companion of his fourth elopement. Boris

ensued. What they aald to each other

Hla District Railroad.
(Coryright, 1902. by Press Publishing Co.)
LONDON, Sept. 27. (New York World
Cablegram Special Telegram.) Charles
Terkes has been talking very freely since
his return to London concerning the rulnoue
competition of the J. Plerpont Morgan
combination in the underground railway
field. Mr. Yerkes said today: "The Dis
trict railway will be electrified completely
eighteen months from now. An enormous
amount of money Is being spent upon it,
and what we say la that we should be
given a fair chance to show what he can
do. If Parliament gives permission to your
rivals to run another line along side the
District railway and practically ruin it, as
such a line must Inevitably do, I do not
think It would be fair."
"8uppote," Mr. Yerkes was asked, "these
schemes bad started before you took an
Interest In the District railway?"
"I do not hesitate to say that in that
rasa wo should not have touched the Dis
trict railway until the question was set
tled. Now, however, that we are In It, we
are bound to see it through. We could not
sell our stock even If we tried."
Mr. Yerkes did not tblnk tbe Morgan line
would confer any advantage upon the public
which would not be conferred by the elec
trified District railway, and he certainly
did not think there was any necessity for
both lines. "We have now to fight for our
existence," he said.
Charles Rothschild Gathers Them

for Hla Collection.
(Copyright. 1902, by Press Publishing Co.)
LONDON, Sept. 27. (New York World
Cablegram Special Telegram.) The Roth
schilds are all noted as collectors of strange
things, but Lord Rothschild's second son,
Charles, prides himself on having the larg
est collection of fleas that was ever brought
together. This strange hobby has been
brought Into notice by the fact that some
Polar explorers have just brought him a
number of fleas tbat live on animals within
Artie circles.
"Every animal and bird has a particular
kind of a flea," he says, enthusiastically,
"and very many of them have several dif
ferent kinds. So, you aee, the flea affords
more diverse material for a collector than
any living creature. I have fleas from
every corner of the world over 10.000 dif
ferent varietlea. Whenever an expedition
Is about to start for a foreign land I engage
one of the party to collect specimens of
fleas from every species of mammal and
bird that is encountered. The variety Is
endless and It affords me as great delight
to find a new flea as any of my relatives
derive from aecurlng a great masterpiece
of art." Charles Rothschild is 25 years of
age, and his elder brother, Walter, la a
noted naturalist. Both have their collec
tions at Trine: Park, Lord Rothschild's
country place.

ent while he was on a flying visit to Rome
prior to his departure for the United States

that he had the sympathy of Italian people
and said he would arraign the conduct of
the Pesaro authorities, If necessary, before
the king. Asked whether he had rfny In
tention of settling in the United States
Mascagnt impetuously answered: "I ad

for their generous admiration, but I love
my country and I should prefer to live
surrounded by enemies and In comparative
oblivion here rather than aa a pampered
favorite elsewhere."

PARIS, Sept. 27. (New York World

pleasures of glided youth to a cobbler's
bench is tho romantic career of Count Ed
ward 8tadlos. a member of one of the
noblest families of Austria. The some
what unusual moral of the tale Is the fact
that In the face of a fresh smile from
fickle fortune he prefers to remain a cob
bler. The affair came about In this way: The
young count, having dissipated Ms wealth.
was wandering through a forest in
Hungary when he came upon a cobbler
to whom he confessed his poverty. The
man offered him a home and a trade and
the count, accepting, was taken to his
homo and taught to make and mend shoes.
One day a man of law, who had been
looking for him a long time, arrived and
told him that by tho successive and rapid
deaths of all of his male relatives he had
become belr of the Immense fortune of the
Stadlos and member of the House of Peers
of Austria. This sudden prosperity, com
ing after so many misfortunes, did not
turn tbe head of the noble cobbler, who,
according to rumor, ordered that a simple
hut be built In the forest, and now, having
renounced the vanities of the world, he
live In this hut, making and mending his
own shoes.

BOSTON, Sept. 27. A committee of cltl-
tens, headed by the publisher of a Boston
newspaper today sought relief In the courts
from the present coal shortage and h'.gh
prices by asking for a receiver for the coal
companies and coal carrying roads. A bill
In equity wa filed In the supreme court
against the following named corporations:
Tbo Philadelphia ft Reading Railroad com
pany; the Central Railroad of New Jersey;
the Lehigh Valley Railroad company; the
Delaware, Lackawanna ft Western Railroad
company; the Delaware A Hudson com
pany; the New York, Ontario ft Western
railroad; the Erie Railroad company; the
Pennsylvania Coal company and the Phila
delphia ft Reading Iron ft Coal company.
The petitioners ask that a receiver be
appointed for the benefit of all concerned
upon such terms and In such manner, and
with such agents and servants, and with
such rates of wages and other conditions
of employment and at such prices for goods
produced and sold, as the court shall from
time to time adjudge proper.
The bill Is baaed upon the legal theory
of the coal situation, given by H. W. Chap
lin, a lawyer.
Position of Plaintiff.
Mr. Chaplin says in support of his posi
tion: "Since the public have a right tn
the mines, a right to have coal forthwith
mined for Immediate consumption, and
have a right to have that coal Immediately
transported out of the mine regions, by the
coal carrying roads, a court of equity, if
no other solution of the difficulty Is op:n.
has authority to and upon the application of
a representative proportion of the people
undoubtedly would appoint a receiver or
receivers to take Into his or their hands
the whole business now tn the hands of
the anthracite coal combine, and to run It
in their place."
A subpoena to serve on the defendants,
giving notice of the bringing of the ault. Is
to be taken out Monday by tbe plaintiff
lawyer, and It will probably he returnable
in November.

Qulvera has the festival of a coronation
opened with such splendor and promise
ae has thin the carnival which marks the
ascent of King Ak-Sar-Ben VIII. to tho
Although the festivities ' decreed by th
powers have but just begun, thousands
upon thousands of his majesty's faithful
subjects have already come from all parts
of the kingdom and their hearts are Joyous
with the spirit of the time.
The rates of the Imperial city are open
and through them a multitude of loyal and
enthusiastic citizens swing every day to
participate In the festival attending th
crowning of the new king. By the timo
the gorgeous royal pageant passes on Its
way to the palace next Thursday night and
by the time the royal court ball Is set in
motion next Friday night the city will be
crowded to Its utmost.
Last night, even as the festival la open
ing, multitudes swarmed the highways aud
byways of the Imperial city the people as
radiant In spirits as the city was brilliant
in holiday attire. -And whle the crowds
have never been equalled, so has th Illum
ination of the Imperial city surpassed all
previous showing.
Streeta ioreool- Illnmlned.
The street lllumlrmiloij famished a
brilliant, dazzling spectacle. Light from
thousands of incandescent ilectrtc bulbs
dissolved night into day and shone with
glittering splendor. Streets were arched
and hemmed by continuous strings of these
glowing embers, which also hung In rsdi-
ant clusters from stately buildings that
reared tbelr blazing heights like walls of
fire above the admiring masses fairly awed
by this peerless feat of the electrician.
Farnara and Sixteenth stretts, of the
principal thoroughfares, presented the
most striking appearances. They were
irched with rows of. Incandescent at ln,-
tervals of A block, lined on both sides by.
similar strings, thus forming ranopie of
brilliant hue. Farnam street from Tenth
to Twentieth was one long corridor of fir.
as waa also Bixteentn irom tiowero. 10
Webster, about the same distance. Th In
tersecting arches at Sixteenth and Farnam
formed tbe climax of the dazzling picture.
Douglas street from Twelfth to Seven
teenth and Harney from Fifteenth to Sev
enteenth were draped in luminous folds.
Conrthonse Paragan of Paseaat.
With all tbe inspiring glory of this fes
tive night the court house was the paragon
of the pageant. Its old dome was one
blazing mass of white light, and on Its
pinnacle arose, in majestic splendor, the
emblematic form of Justice, wreathed In
fire and with fiery hand outstretched, aa If
In token to the beckoning figure of tho
Ooddess of Liberty, which danced amid
myriads of glistening lights on tbe city
ball building across the street. Just be
neath this triumphant spectacle against
the front of the court house tnd above
the Farnam street entrance was a beautiful
shield of red, white tnd blue ;ghts, tbe
Etars penetrating the background of blue.
Every window In the old eolflc was
fringed with incandescents.
The city ball, Just opposite, shone back
aa it to vie In friendly rivalry with th
gorgeous glory of th "temple of Justice."
The Goddess of Liberty, In haughty mien,
smiled In graceful grandeur upon her bril
liant sister. Justice, and a radiant trl
colored shield, like that on the court
house, helped to complete the Imposing
Bee Bnlldlna- 1 Brilliant.
The Bee building completed a trio of the
most beautifully decorated of all the build
ings In the city. Across the top over tbe
Farnam street entrance, like diamond lace,
sparkled hundreds of Incandescents, and
from the projections wreathe of diamonds
smiled on the gazing thousands. Around
tbe windows end on the Farnam street
side were lights of many colors, arranged
In artistic groups.
The seats erected on both sides of the
street were filled for hours by many per
sons, who gazed In admiration on the
three buildings.
Decoration of Bualneaa Honaaa.
Of th business houses tbe Boston store
probably attracted the greatest number of
persons and elicited the greatest amount
of praise. From a five-pointed diamond
star, which was constructed far above the
building over the entrance at Sixteenth
and Douglas streets, two strings of lights
trailed to a base of light which edged the
top of the entrance. Three large squares
of light enclosed the eaat side of the
building, and from each window Old Olory
waved. At this place the streeta wer
congested many tlmea during the evening
by the admiring throngs.
At the store of W. R. Bennett tbe Illu
minations wer In tbe ahow windows, and
the Oriental scene and the queen of Ak-Sar-Ben
in her parlor were Illuminated
with the color of Ak-Sar-Ben. This place
was highly complimented and during tb
nttr evening a good-natured crowd num
bering thoueanda jostled each other for a
place to see.
Many other business bouses wer gaily
decorated, Including the hotels, and there
were thousands of persons who, being un
able to get into tbe carnival grounds, felt
amply repaid for tbelr presence In th city
by the sight of th wonderful Illumina
tions. Crowd Well Behaved.
Th crowd that entered the carnival
grounds occupied every available space and
standing roun. was easily at a premium.
There were 31,771 persons paid admission
Itito the grounds. Of these 28,773 went
through th turnstile and th remainder
through tb past galea and tb large sxlt
