EMPEROR SLIGHTS A GUEST
Causes Terrible Trouble in Hungary bj
Ignoring Politician at Court EalL
TWO HUNDRED CROATIANS ARE EXECUTED
Martial Law Proelalssed at Kreats
Gives Chance to PaaUh Thoso

olotloa for Baaday Last.
VIENNA, May 15. Contrary to general
hopes and expectations the Hungarian
political situation seems to have grown
worse rather than better during Emperor
Francis Joseph's stay at Buda-Pest
This is reported to be largely due to an
Incident at the court ball on Thursday.
As usual his majesty embraced the op
portunity to converse with the most prom
inent political and ofllcial personages,
but on this occasion he entirely overlooked
Count Apponyi, president of the lower
house, whose relations with Premier de
Szell are said to be strained.
The emperor's oversight was partic
ularly remarked, as during the evening
they frequently stood near each other. The
opposition, which is hoping that the count
will Join it at some future time, is greatly
annoyed at the affair and resolved to ad
dress an Interpolation to the ministry at
today's session of Parliament, but de
ferred action at the urgent request of
Premier de Ssell.
Count Apponyi himself appear to be of
fended. He did not preside In the house
today and it Is expected he will not ap
pear until the matter Is settled. It is now
reported that the emperor will receive the
count In special audience.
Concurrently with the government's
troubles In Hungary the disturbances in
Croatia continue. There was a great
demonstration at Buccart 6n Thursday,
when 1,000 persona demanded the release
of the rioters arrested on the day pre
vious. The authorities refused, where
upon the mob attacked the court house and
forced the officials to give up the pris
oners. All this happened while a detach
ment of troops was guarding a railroad
station a short distance from the town.
At Kreats. which Is under martial law,
200 persons have been tried and executed.
In a published Interview the ban of Croatia
stated that a revolution had been planned
for May 10, but the government discov
ered the plot In time. The ban was forced
to admit that Hungarian officials were
partially responsible for the troubles.
Notwithstanding unfavorable reports it Is
still hoped that affairs In Croatia soon will
become quieter. This, however, must be
largely dependent on the political situation
CIRCUS ARRIVES IN TOWN
Porepaaa-h A Sells' Brothers' Teats
Are Pitched for Two Per- '
This Is the day the small boy has been
waiting for these many weeks. He showed
tossing Interest In the opening of the base
Sill season, but the circus posters have
had him hypnotised over since they have
been on the bill boards. Now the circus Is
here. . It came on schedule time this morn
ing and performances will be given both
afternoon and night And It la a great big
circus, a combination of the great show
organised and operated by the lata Adam
Forepaugh and that of the equally as well
known Bells brother. ,
The circus opened Its season at St Louis
a few weeks ago and In consequence the
people of Omaha will have the advantage
of seeing the show In all Its early sesson
freshness. Speaking of the performance,
one of the St Louis papers said: "It Is
unique. There la no spectacle; there Is no
striving after new or odd changes; no
straining for Innovation. EVery act pre
sented is a real circus act. It is a tremen
dously big show, but a circus all the time.
Its essence lies in its big, heavy feature
acts and the apparatus necessary to pro
duce them. This is its distinguishing trait,
and lifts it out of the rut and seta it over
In a class of its own."
And whisper Dlavolo, the bright scintil
lating star of a constellation, wilt positively
appear at both performances. - Diavolo's
performance -of looping the loop on a bi
cycle Is. pointed to aa the greatest circus
feature ever seen under a tent The posters
depicting the act have caused no amount
of comment, and many wagers have been
made pro and con relative to the possibility
of a man on a bicycle performing such a
feat The managers of the circus state
that any doubting Thomas will be con
vinced when the show appears hero. A
short time ago Diavolo's understudy met
with probably fatal injuries while attempt
ing to perform the feat at St Louis, but
this accident has not affected Diavolo's
Among other features attention Is called

single wheel ascends and descends a narrow
spiral tower that reaches to the top of the

In the performance of the Ryan-Zorella
troupe of aeriallsta. Two scores of cham
pion riders of all schools of equestrianism
will be seen in the lings. The celebrated
LaCarmens will perform feats on a slender
wire suspended high In the air that other
performers would find difficult on the
ground. The famous Eddy family of seven
sensational acrobats are a feature of the
show. There will be every sort of act that
a well regulated show should havo and
many features that no other circus pre

PITY THE BOY WITH MONEY
Straggles of a Youngster of IT to
Dodge the Matrimonial Net
of a Widow.
It Is becoming exceedingly dangerous for
very young men who are unused to the

to publish recently concerning the case of
an Indiana boy who Inherited a fortune
and was kidnaped by some of his relatives,
who have tried to make it appear that he

before I found relief, but It seemed like
a Godsend to me. I kept up the treat

months ago, but I have had ho relnpse

to his ma.
Then the hapless woman's love turned to
fierce, burning hate. She steeled her heart
against Clinton, and when she met him on
the stairs an evening or two later she
