. ODES8A, RusHla, Jan. 3. (New York
WorM Cablegram Special Telegram.) Dis
quieting details about the czar'a health are
leaking out. Tho pressure of empire la tell
'lng on him. A conitltutlon, never atrong;
nervous system which received a shock In
a tea rnuse In Japan years ago. when a Jap
fanatic attacked him, has been overladen
with work which It cannot carry, and by the
advice of his physicians he is In the Cri
mea to seek rest and change.
' Yalta, where the czar's Crimean resi
dence, Llvadla, Is situated. Is one of the
loveliest places on earth. Sheltered on the
north by a range of high htlla, which break
the cold winds coming from the Arctic with
out Interruption, It lies on a lovely bay,
the waters of which, save on the rarest oc
casions, rival the purples and blues of the
Aegean. All over the slope of the hills are
picturesque villages of the Crimean" Tar
tans, lying low in their orchards and
cypress groves, and on the higher, rocky
slopes the olive and vine find a home.
Llvadla Itself Is a paradise. There czars
have lavished their treasures to make It
what It Is the loveliest retreat In creation,
the house Itself Is ostentatiously simple
when seen from some distance, but as one ap
proaches there is a richness of decoration
about it, a marvelous beauty about the
grounds, which mark them as the haunt of
one who has untold wealth at command and
an army of servants.
Favorite of Tsarina.
Th young czarina went there aa a bride
and was enchanted with this pearl of the
Russian Riviera. In her northern home,
with its frosts of nature and still severer
social frosts, the longs for the days when
he and "Kolla," as she calls her hCaband,
ran tramp arm In arm amid the gardens and
cypress groves of Llvadla. None of her
people know much of this sweet life, the

rarely. If at all, and always with bated

The czar la an early riser. His German
nurse taught him a German proverb, "The
early morning has gold In Its mouth." H
tjuotes this with a smile when a minister
comes late to an appointment at 7 o'clock
tn the morning. He dresses hastily It Is
without putting on a collar, and takes a
rapid walk through the grounds with halt
a dozen fbx terriers at his heels, and
Tatlana, the next to the eldest little grand
duchess, racing behind.
At 8 o'clock there Is coffee, but only the
family Is present, snd Olga, the eldest
daughter, her father's Image, has her place

The rest poke gentle fun at her until she

Anlstosla, the youngest. Is only a year and

lho happiest of mortals, and he looks it.
Ministers Come Next.
1 Afterward come the ministers and secre
taries with their portfolios and telegrams
and' "acts," aa they call their ponderous
state documents. The czar reads them all,
slaving away at them until mid-day, whlls
his wife is with the children, sometimes
romping with them when nobody is looking,
her nnlden hair streaming at her back as
he flies about.
English Is alwaya spoken on these occa
ions. When the czar and his wife are
alone no other language Is used, but if a
stranger appears they turn to French.
When the czar was deeply immersed in a
series of state papers with the minister
of the Interior the other day, the door
suddenly opened and Olga appeared.
"Father," she said. In the best of Eng
linn, "come to breakfast, we cannot wait
any longer." And Olga waited around until
the mighty monarch had to leave his mln
later and, seizing her in his arms, off they
marched to breakfast, the minister smiling
and bowing at the writing table.
The luncheon Is a slmplo affair, but there
are always from a score to a dozen officers
present and any minister who may be In
The little grand duchesses are there also
and worry the lives out of the staid officers
with their droll questions, to the Infinite

Tatlana recently asked a stiff and proper
young captain In the navy If he had any
little girls like her, and when he answered
he had none, she asked ':'Why?" and when
he reddened at this the little grand duchess
told him she liked bltu better when he
looked cool than when he looked hot.
If the weather Is One and not too warm

LONDON. Jan. 3 N'w York World Ca
blegram Special Telegram.) English so
ciety ha i no more rmnrkable example of
the semi-detached couple than the marquis
and the marchioness of Anglesey. The
marchioness Is the daughter of Sir Oeorgo
Chrtwynd, the second husband of the mar
chioness of Hastings, the daughter of the
second rosrquts of Anglesey. As Lady Flora
Tanet this ludy (the mother) a reigning
belle, was engaged, away back In tbe six
ties, to Homy Chaplin Two days before
the wedding she went to Marshall ft Snell
grove's dry goods store on Oxford street,
ostensibly to make final arrangements for
her trousseau, entered the store by the
front door, left it by the side door, ran
away and married the marquis of Hast
ings. How Henry Chaplin's "dark horse"
Hermit beat the marquis of Hastings first
favorite In the next year's Derby and
seriously crippled tbe tatter's fortune is
one of the romances of the British turf.
When, five years ago. Miss Chetwynd
married the marquis of Anglesey (or Lord
Uxbrldge, as he then was). It was con
sidered a great matrimonial stroke. He
had an income of nearly $1,000,000 a year
and gave to her 25, 000 worth of Jewelry.
They separated after six weeks. In six
months she brought suit to have the mar
riage nullified, but a few days before the
casn was to have been heard she applied
to have It withdrawn. The facts never
came to light, the case being heard "In
camera," but Justice Jeune, who has a
unique experience In matrimonial matters,
said It was the most extraordinary cane
that had ever come to his notice. The
stilt was withdrawn, the marquis settled
$60,000 a year on the marchioness, and
since then they have gone their own ways.
The marquis has a bad case of stage
mania. He devotes all his time to private
theatricals, which he carries out on a
lavish scale at his castle, Plas Newydd, In
north Wales. The marchioness, considered
the most beautiful marchioness in Eng
land, passes her time between London,
Paris and the Riviera. She 1 of the airy,
fairy type, with wonderful pink and whit
complexion, tltlanesque red hair, and eyes
that only Greuze could do Justice to. She
excites unbounded admiration and Interest
In her Is heightened by tbe mystery that
surrounds her brief matrimonial life.

PARIS. Jan. 8. (New York World Ca-
blegram Special Telegram.) Now that the
Humbert are In prison and the public is
satisfied that the government Is not trying
to screen them, there Is no disposition to
prosecute them. Rather, It may be said,
there 1 a certain amount of sympathy
for the prisoner. Lawyers who may be
presumed to know the feeling of the Judges
who will pas upon this case say there Is
a disposition to look lightly upon Mme.
Humbert a conduct.
There can be no doubt that honest
men suffered through her operations, yet It
was not they, but the money lenders (who
made enormous sums out of her), and
when they saw they could not make more
set the law In motion with a view to her
exposure. With those blood suckers
neither the law nor the public has any
sympathy. "Served them right" is the
The attitude of Leonce Marchand, the
millionaire oil merchant of Dunkirk, who
is Humbert's biggest creditor, may be
taken as an Indication of the procedure
which those who are not professional
money lenders will adopt toward Mme.
"My brother and I, between us, loaned
Mme. Humbert nearly 12.500.000 francs
($2,500,000)," said he, "and we never got
a centime back. What Is the good of try
ing to get It back now? Besides, we know
quite well that the money never did
Therese (Mme. Humbert) any good. It
went to satisfy the usurers. As far as
we are concerned, Mme. Humbert may have
an easy mind. Neither my brother nor I
have any Intention of bringing an action
against her. We were fools and don't
want to have any more to do with an af
fair which does not Interest us any more."
The situation, therefore, may be summed
up as follows: It Mme. Humbert and
her brother, Romaln d'Aurlgnac, maintain
a discreet silence regarding their relations
with those In high quarters they will bene
fit by the efforts mads In their behalf by
tbe magistracy and those In authority. If
any on presses" for a harsh sentence It
will be the money lenders, for whom the
public has acant regard.
. Light Sentences Probable.
The probable result will be that Mme.
Humbert and Romaln will get sentences
of one or two years' Imprisonment and
that tbe other members of the family
either will be more leniently dealt with or
will be set at liberty.
It was feared that the Humberts' coming
back would lead to rlotoua scenes and re
gretable incidents. The prefect of police
and the minister of the Interior passed
long, anxious hours arranging tbe details
of elaborate measures intended to circum
vent the public and press. Vp to the last
minute no outsiders knew where the de
tectives would leave the train from Madrid
with their prisoners. Representatives of
the Psrls newspapers waited on Prefect
Leplne tbe evening before the train was due
and asked for Information about the hour
and place of arrival. "Come again to
morrow morning at ," said Prefect Le
pine. When the reporters turned up Mr.
Leplne told them to Jump Into carriages
in waiting and follow him. They did so
and were driven to the Orleans Belt Line
station, Just inside the walls of the city.
This place had been chosen by the au
thorities in order to avoid such a crowd
as certainly would have Invaded the new
central terminus at Qual d'Orsay had the
Humberts landed there.
The train arrived before daybreak. A
score of detectives lined up alongside the
last car, which promptly was uncoupled.
snd the remainder of the train resumed
Its Journey to central Paris. Hennion
the French chief of detectives, who bad
accompanied the prisoners from Madrid
was tbe first to step down from ths car,
Then came Mme. Humbert, dreased In
black and wearing a fur boa and dark hat
trimmed with violets. She seemed to nave
grown much thinner during her residence in
Spain. Although she looked tired, her
festures wore a stamp of decision.
Outside the station Mme. Humbert and
Eva were put Into a cab. Two detectives
were about to take place beside them
when Mme. Humbert, in an Imploring voice,
exclaimed: "M. Hennion, can we not be
left alone? We are so tired."
"Very well," replied Hennion.
Then only one detective went Inside the
vehicle, the other getting up beside the
driver. Marie d'Aurlgnac got into the
second cab with two more detectives. Then
"Bring out the others."
Men Com Last.
Romaln d'Aurlgnac was the firt of the
men to step down. He wss smiling, ss
usual, and apparently not In the leaat dls
concerted. Emit, bis brother, did not seem
to relish bis position. Frederick Hum
bert, the husband of Therese, walked with
much difficulty, his soft hat pulled down
over his eyes. They were also conducted
by detectives to cabs.
As soon as everybody was ready the party
started for the conciergtrte. The proces

FOR A GRAIN MARKET
Campaign Formally Launched at Citizen's
Meeting at Board of Trade.
ENERGETIC MEN TAKE INITIAL STEPS
Adopt Businesslike Methods to Attaii
the End in View.
RECOGNIZE OPPOSITION OF RAILROADS
Committee of Five Men Appointed to
Assemble Figures and fact
OBJECT IS TO PROVE DISCRIMINATION
Furthermore Committee la Expected
to Convince Railroad Companies
that Grain Market Would
Be to Their Advantage.
The campaign for the establishment of a
grain market In Omaha Is now under way.
It was formally lauched at the meeting of
those citizens in any way interested held
in the exchange room at the Board of Trade
building Saturday afternoon. Some two
score men appeared to take tpen and active
part In the Initial event of this crusado
started In behalf of the commercial Interests
of this city against the railroads which op
pose the market.
As a consequence of this meeting a sys
tematic movement toward securing the mar
ket is already on foot. Businesslike meth
ods were adopted from the first. It was
recognized Immediately and frankly by the
conference that the plan depended for suc
cess upon the help of the railways which
now oppose It, and steps vere taken to
alter this attitude. It was admitted that
without such a change In the sentiments
of tho roads tho market could not tope to
thrive and It was agreed that the first thing
In order was to show the railroads that It
would be to their own interests to aid th
To this end, after much deliberation and
open discussion, a committee of five men
waa appointed to assemble figures and facts
to show the railroads that they were dis
criminating against Omaha, and also to
prove to them that they would gain by not
doing so, that tbe grain mnrket would be to
their benefit. At the close ot the meeting
Chairman E. P. Peck appointed P. 3. Her,
N. Merrlam, W. C. Sunderland, Jnmea
Walsh and L. R. Cottrell on this committee.
Mr. Peck stated that be had endeavored to
give due consideration to the interests ot
both grain men and the Board ot Trade In
his selection. A recess was then taken for
two weeks, after which interval the body
wl.l again meet In tbe same place to hear
aud act upon the report ot ths committee.
Men at the Meeting.
. The sole disappointing feature of th
meeting was the dearth of grain men pres
ent. Less than a score of the forty or more
In the city were there to show an open
front In the fight. This fact was th sub
ject of considerable oomment on the part
Ot thos cltlxens who spoke to. Ih matUtv,.
of th grain market. -
Th grain men were: N. Merrlam, J. IL
Hamilton J. H. Conrad, P. E. Her, 8. A.
McWhorter, B. P. Peck, F. C. Holllnger, W.
C. Sunderland, Thomas Baker, Jamea
Walsh, J. Comstock, L. R. Cottrell, F. J.
Campbell, John E. Von Dorn, F. A. Grits
ner, F. Falkner of Schuyler, Neb., and N. A.
Duff of Nebraska City.
The directorate of the Board ot Trad
was represented by two members, James
Walsh and S. A. McWhorter. Two railroad
men only were present. They were George
Entrlkln, division freight agent of tbe Wa
bash railroad, and W. Lalng, contracting
freight agent tor tbe same road. (
One question that has been much agitated
during the last week was decisively settled.
That was that the market Is to be under
the auspices of the Omaha Board of Trade.
It was decided that no tther pin would,
carry behind it the stability and backing
that the Board of Trade can lend to the
project. There was some sentiment to the
contrary expressed by a few men present,
but the majority was Insistent that no
other plan should be considered for a mo
ment. To that end the Immediate organ
isation was left absolutely temporary In .
order that everything may be swung In to
the Board of Trade directorate as soon as
the preliminary rteps are completed.
1'roceedlng In Detail .
The session continued a little more than
an hour, commencing at 3.30. Mr. Peck
was at once installed as temporary chair
man and F. C. Holllnger aa secretary. Tb
object of tbe meeting was stated and thos
present called upon for expressions on
the matter. P. E. Her was first called.
"We can get this thing If the railroads
will help us. It will be of the greatest
benefit to the city In every way. With
that grain market here and the railroads
all favorable to It there la hardly a limit to
what the town can become. But It all de
pends on these railways."
James Walsh followed: "Outsiders who
look at this city and note Its location say
that there Is something wrong. And there
Is something wrong. It can be righted only
by agitation. The grain men can do It it
they will all stand together. The qu-sstlon
before us la bow to reach the corporations
that are opposing this market. Not nearly
all the grain men are present. The absent
ones are here in tbe spirit, but not In per
son. They are afraid that some of the fa
vors they are enjoying at the hands of these
railroads in question will be cut off. Those
that are here are the Independent ones
who are going in this thing from the first
for all there Is In It. Omaha should b ona
of tbe biggest grain markets. It location
warrants .it. All ws want Is Justice from
the railroads and we will become that. In
order to get justice the grain men must say
what they know eoncernlng the discrimina
tion that Is practiced against this city by
Mr. Merrlam Speaks.
N. Merrlam was called upon to tell what
he knew of this discrimination. "I am not
prepared to ssy whether Omaha haa ths
recognition due It from the railroads or
not," said he. "It not. the pe.ople of the
city are to blame. Tbey can compel It.
I understand that Kansas City was in that
condition a few years ago. It broke Its
bonda and if we unit Omaha can do ths
same, It there are any bonds. I shall not
ssy there are. If we are being discriinl
nsted sgalnat we must have tbe figures to
show that we are. I believe that If th
railroads are shown In facts and figure
that they are discriminating against this
city they will help eliminate the evil. W
must have the flgurea."
I'pon this Mr. McWhorter moved that a
committee be appointed to get up these
facts and figures. Mr. Van Ixrn seconded
the motion. Mr. Her moved ss an amend
ment that the rommi'tee also Investigate
and elucidate th necessity and advtaablU
