LONDON. Oct. 25. (New York World Cs
blegrsm Special Telegram.) The Mad
Mullah, against whom another punitive ex
pedition of British troops la about to be
atarted In Sonialiland, In northeast Africa,
has loos been an object of suspicion by
the War office. He and bis followers bate
opposed the development of the interior
of Somaliland and have constantly stirred
up strife by raiding and looting tribes
which were under British protection. Early
last spring be raided tribes within eighteen
miles of Burao, and this, despite the pres
ence of a British garrison, which was pow
aMeas to effect anything against the Mul
lah's rapidly moving force.
This naturally increased the admiration
of his followers for him, and Colonel
Bwayne's punitive expedition, made up of
natives under British officers, waa started
out to scatter his forces. This expedition
waa defeated a few days ago, and for a
time It waa feared that It would be anni
hilated. But It has reached safety, and
all the British wounded are reported to be
doing well. . General Manning arrived at
Aden this week and at once began to rush
trained Indian troops to Somaliland. It la
believed the Mad Mullah has a force of
from It. 000 to 16,000 men, many of whom
are well armed and mounted.
Ask Abyssinia to Help.
The British cannot promptly put any
thing like as large a force as that in the
Held there, but expect to send there a
brigade (3,000 or 4,000 men) of troops from
India. It is understood that the govern
ment will ask the negus (emperor) of
' Abyssinia to send a force against the
fanatlca from the west, aa he did once
before with great effect. If the negue
consents he will send an army out under
Raa Makonnen, the commander-in-chief of
the Abyssinian army. Ras Makonnen came
to London for the coronation aa the repre

(Copyright. 112. by Press Publishing Co.)
PARIS. Oct. 25 (New York World Cable
gramSpecial Telegram ) The great Hum
bert swindle has a rival In the series of
frauds now Isld at the door of a coterie,
headed ty Canon Rosenberg, Abbe Gull
lauroln and a banker named Malleval,
among whose associstes were an alleged
prince, a baroness and a dramatist. Their
operations have just been brought to light
through complaints made to the police by
Mrs. Civet, a woman of independent means,
who, on the advice of the abbe, had en
trusted $100,000 to Malleval, who disap
peared. Mrs. Civet was drawn Into denllngs
with the people she now accuses through her
desire for separation from her husband. K -had
procured a civil divorce and wanted an
annulment of the religious ceremony. A
man going by the name of Oadobert and
calling himself the grand chancellor of the
archbishopric of Smyrna volunteered to In
tercede with the pope In her cause for 112,
000. He got the money, spent It and was
arrested. Rosenberg then promised to use
his good offices at the Vatican, but nothing
came of bis promises, and Mrs. Civet,
finally realizing that she was being fooled,
went to the police. Rosenberg has a fas
cinating personality. He is tall, handsome,
hss engaging manners, is a brilliant talker
and Inspires confidence. Some who have
Buffered through him even now refuse to
believe that he is not the salntliest man on
earth. Hla parenta having made a sensa
tional conversion to Catholicism at Tours,
be went into the church and In 1885 ob
tained the canonry of Tours, but bis busi
ness Instincts got ahead of hla religious in
clinations. Some time later certain titled women
who had followed his counsel found them
selves penniless and he himself had become
bankrupt, with liabilities amounting to
$625,000. Then he waa auspended by hla
His next move affected pious women who
desired divorce. It is alleged that he
passed himself off as the bishop of Cyprus,
that be said he had been appointed vicar
general by the Maronite archbishop, who
haa the power to annul marriage without
appealing to the pope, and he is accused
of granting imaginary divorce to sancti
monious women. This brought him in a
handsome revenue, it is reported, until Mrs.
Civet's action put an end to the business.
The second transaction, Mrs. Civet
avers, she had with Rosenberg, waa to ad
vance $1,000 to enable him to go to America
to negotiate a loan for the Turkish gov
ernment. The canon assured her, she
aaya, that the loan would be repaid ten
fold when he made up his accounts with
the sultan. Rosenberg is also charge
with aendlng young women to gamble for
him at Monte Carlo and with ordering
wine on credit and selling it wherever he
went His audacity knew ni limit, if ths
stories told ef him sre true.

to have repreeented that he owned large

the country, but before he could obtain
payment for his services Mrs. Civet set

GREAT LEGAL BATTLE BEGINS
Fight for .Strotton Millions Cos
monces tn Earnest In Court at
COLORADO SPRINGS. ' Colo.. Oct .
The. great, legal bat Us over the Straiten
millions eommenced in earnest today In
the district court before Judge W. P. Seeds.
Today's proceedings are the beginning of
the fight on the present three executors
named by Mr. Stratum In his will to prove
that the administrators appointed In Sep
tember by County Judge Orr were Illegally
created and. therefore, are not entitled to
handle and administer the estate. The case
waa taken out of the county court and Into
the district on a writ of certiorari issued
three weeks ago.
The most important point yet decided
was the ruling by Judge Seeds that ques
tions In lsw must be taken up before ques
ttons of fact. The decision, as far aa it
goes, is a victory for the executors, ss It
mesns If the lllegslity of the appointment
of the administrators Is established, the en
tire proceedings of the county court will
be thrown out, In which event the executors
will not have to substantiate their charges
of conspiracy preferred against the admini
strators three weeks ago. The latter ob
jected strenuously to the ruling.
United States Senator T. M. Patterson
has been added to the array of legal talen
for the executors, snd appeared In court
. . . V . . .
thla morning, addressing the court for two
hours, in which he reviewed the esse from
the stsrt to the present time
Judge Blssei, for the executors, followed
snd ssserted that the appointment of the
administrators waa Illegal because thers
wss no ground for such action and one of
them, O. P. Grimes, is a brother-in-law of
Judge Orr, who appointed him,
