Interesting man, like a modern knight

World correspondent. Mr. Laurent, who
wears the crosa of the Legion of Honor,

a deputy, and now Is an aggressive editor

The World correspondent referred to the
press comparison of the travels of Presi

Mr. Laurent observed:

saluting, remark: 'What are you doing
here, M. le President.' He, replying, un
affectedly, ssys: 'I am just waiting for
my omnibus,' and when It comes along he
hops on, standing on the platform and
moklng a cigar.
"Rut the voyage and displays In Algiers
had to be made costly, or I perceive
France would hare been belittled In the
eyes of the Arabs."
Mr. Laurent expresssd his Ideas on other
'subjects now agitating the press as fol
lows: Republic is Permanent.
"A change In government In France
could only become possible as the result of
a most disastrous wsr, or one ending In
extraordinary victory. In the first Instance,
, maddened vth chagrin, the people might
do anything; in the eecoad, a successful
general might become such a popular idol
that he could achieve anything.
"One royalist, the pretended Prince Victor
Napoleon, who, forbidden to enter France,
Uvea In Brussels, is out of the race for
private reasons, while bis younger brother,
Louis, now a general In the Ruealan army,
though able and popular, seem content In
hie present position. The other pretender,
the duke Of Orleans, who Is also barred
from France, had a brief-popularity through
Insisting on coming Into the country to do
military service, but being arrested aa a
result he has now subsided."
B peaking on the question of the budget.
Mr. Laurent said:
"It Is Impossible for.lt to be worse, but
I think the government credit le not men
aced, although the difficulties can only be
overcome by more taxation and rigid econ
omy. The French 'woolen stockings' are
till aa full of money aa they were In 1870,
but It would lake some grsat national peril
to bring It ut."

I Touching upon the tuple of the freedom
of the press, he observed:
"I believe In absolute freedom In utter

I believe the press is equally amenable to

the common law."
Recently in a series of articles entitled
"I'ne Bastille a Prendre" (A Bastille to

of opening the private mall of prominent

PARIS, April 25. (New Tork World Ca

central figures of thj opera quarter In the
"City of Light" is Mme. Duperron, 75 yesrs
old, who has kept for thirty-six years a
newspaper kiosk Just to the right aa one
comes out of the Orsnd hotel on the Boule
vsrd des Cspuclnes
Through the winter fogs and cold and
the summer heat and dust of a lull genera
tion this eccentric but highly Intelligent
woman hss been at ber station dally with
unfailing cheerfulness to wait upon custo
mers who come from all quarters of the
globe and spesk all langusges. During the
lege of I'ari5 she sold evening txti.it with
unruffled calm while shells were scattering
death along the boulevards.
Throughout the commune ehe continued
her dally tasks, wisely expressing no opin
ion on any question except that the public
could not read too many newspapers, and
hue escaping interference.
She once caused a great commotion In
the Place de L'Opera at a military review
by Napoleon lit. Somebody of not enough
social importance to Insure an audience
with the emperor was keenly anxious to
bring to his notice a letter, the story goes,
nd Mme. Duperron never denied it, that
the letter wan written by a woman In
Napoleon's household whose husband bad
deserted ber In a manner particularly
shameful, even for those times.
Mme. Duperron volunteered to place the
letter In the emperor's bands. While the
emperor was reviewing the troops, sur
rounded by splendidly mounted chasseurs,
she suddenly darted from the crowd and.
rushing to Napoleon's side, forced a letter
nto his hands.
A score ot arms were outstretched to
thrust her back, but the emperor took the
letter, directing the mounted men to see
hat the woman was not trampled by their
horses. Furthermore, it Is said that the
writer of the letter achieved her end and
that through the medium of the emperor
her husband wae restored to her,
The Intrepid young woman who pushed
aside an emperor's chasseurs three decades
ago Is a bent yet active old woman today,
with Intelligent memory, rich In striking

an object of Interest, affection and respect

PARIS. April 25. (New York World Ca
blegram Special Telegram.) Santos-Du-mont
has been paying close attention lately
to hla great balloon tent, which covers al
most an acre of ground. So many accidents
happen In experimenting with new balloons
and now apparatua while starting to make
an ascent and even before getting fairly
out of the shed that be Is taking every pre
caution to make hie great tent secure with
steel guy ropes,
Although the shed la ready to receive four
balloons he will give his Immediate atten

fitting out will take at least a week. One
of these. No. 6, of the same type aa the last
one in which Santos-Dumont made an
asoent In 1901, has 22,000 cublo feet ca
pacity. The other, No. 7. le of 9.000 cubic
feet capacity. It la forty-eight feet long
and eighty-two feet in diameter. The front
end is larger than the rear. It baa a com

with air by meana of a fan controlled from

Season Proves Handicap.
The season's backwardness has retarded
not only Santos-Duraont's experiments at
Neullly, but also those of Engineer Julllot,
who hss charge of the Lebaudy brothers'
big balloon at Molsson.
Anybody except plucky "little Santos"
would be discouraged at the adverse weather
conditions of the laat few weeks, making
ballooning practically Impossible. The re
cent storm of mixed snow and rain with
heavy wind did considerable damage to his
aerodrome, but with Indomitable energy
Bantos works away and expects to have re'
paire made in a few days.
The Lebaudy brothers' big airship, which
la kept at Molsson, 100 miles from Paris,
has had better luck. Juchmes and Julllot,
the pilot and Inventor respectively, have
made several short trips-from ths aero
drome and have-returned without accident.
Thess gentlemen are confident that they will
be able to fulfill the conditions of the
Deutsch prise, which means sailing from
St. Cloud around the Eiffel tower and back,
But more experiments and better weather
must be awaited before the trip to Paris
ana back can be undertaken.
Expects Many Rear rets.
As eoon as the experlmente get to the
stage of actual air trials the greatest In
terest will center about the degree of con
trol Santos-Dumont will have over his new
airship built to carry fourteen passengers,
about which the World has already pub
lished Interviews. The aeronaut Is much
less concerned about possible failure of this,
his most ambitious undertaking, than he le
at the dubloue prospect of finding fourteen
persons willing to go up with blm. This Is
the balloon with which ha proposes to mako
pleasure excursions, hoping to make the
balloon pay for itself by charging each pas-

the club and In society. Everyone Is glad
to meet him socially, to dine with him, to
plsy billiards with him, and all that, but
the crucial test will come when he aenda

It was the biggest meeting of the campaign
so far held In the Interests ot the opposing
candidates. The principal speakers were

Ovations lasting from two to three min

Cornish and Mr. Rosewater, while liberal
applause and -cheers were given for ths
other candidates. Tbe mayor, who wae
tbe first speaker, was suffering from a se
vers cold end said but a few words. He
told his audience that he had tried to give
(hem clean, business-like administrations;
that the corporations are fighting him tooth
and nail but that he Is resolved to be true
to the people to the last, and on such a
foundation declaration will make hie fight

' The' address of Mr. Cornish was approved
in no gentle manner by the assembly, and
his points never failed to arouse a ready
response, Indicating that they had been
understood. Shortly after he had started
he waa Interrupted for a moment by the
entrance of fifty Second warders. "It Is
good to see the way in which tbe boya ot
the Second ward rally in the interests of
tbe truest friend they ever had In Omaha,"
remarked tbe speaker, and instantly there
was a wild scene of enthusiasm for Frank
E. Moores. ,
There wss another scene ot great ex
citement when Mr. Rosewater declared that
the chances of Moores for re-election were
better than they were three years ago a
weeit before election. Tbe cheering was
sustained when he aald the First, Second

for Moorea than the whole city would for

would do the eame, and that the mayor
will get more votes tban Benson In the re

speech to reviewing what he had accom
