The priests declare that trouble was only averted at tha time the nuns and monks were evicted by their Interceding with their parishioners to be calm, but that now they (the priests) will change their course If persecution is per slsted in and will wash their hands of responsibility for the outcome. Thus far in the street encounters, especially at Plslaance and Belleville, the weapons used have been chiefly confined to bladders, bludgeons and so-called brass knuckles. But many persons have boen seriously Injured, nevertheless. At La Vlllette, which is the slaughter house quarter, the butchers flocked to the priests, who encouraged them. . Father Oriole caused a riot by an address at the Church of St. Jean Baptlste. One priest, however, when handed a revolver ty a sympathiser, hid it under his gown. Dur- Ing this riot Police Prefect Leplna was hurt by a bottle. The newspaper editorials are all heated, but the editors are of different minds. The Lanterns, a government organ, says "The ministers and members of Parlia ment must listen to the voice of their country and show themselves worthy of their task.

A cartoon directing attention to the sub ject, represents President Loubet and Premier 'Combes as big cigars baring friendly chat Loubet remarks: "It seems that, owing to you, If I go to Rome, permission to kiss the pope's toe will be refused me."

Clermont Gan- nsau, the expert ln antiquities who was commissioned to pronounce upon the gen uineness or otherwise of the now famous tiara of Saitaphernes, has given his de cision without helping matters much. The Odessa Jeweler, Ronchomowsky, who as serts that he "faked" the tiara, came her to demonstrate to the state authorities hi skill in imitating antiques. He has ex hibited his handiwork and proved his craft, yet Ganneau and the directors of the Louvre museum are unoonvlnced.

Something about a woman, tt Is hinted. prompted the prince's attack, for the count gave hlra no provocation in the room.

At the Bachelors and the- Turf. $1,000. the points being 26 cents, with 325 on the game. These limits have proved quite enough to ruin many young men. No money changes hands at the club. The play accounts are kept by the card room cashier, who furnishes an account at the end of the week to the loser. If the money is not received by noon on Monday the defaulter ceases to be a member of the club. DIVORCE F0RA ROYAL PAIR Prospective Heir to Throne of Bararia and HU Wife Un able to Agree.

Those who ought to know assert most positively that when Prince Rupert, the prospecUvs heir to the throne of Bavaria, and his wife. Princess Maria Oabrlelle, return from their voyage to China, their marriage will be dissolved, as It Is Impossible that they can ever agree. The marriage was a love match and the bride's parents, Duk Theo dore (the eye physician) and Duchess Maria Josephe, had . serious misgivings because Prince Rupert bad always been the gayest of the gay princes of Bavaria. He was not quite 17 when he eloped with a girl of 15 and if it had not been for lack of money he might not have been brought back for a long ' time.

(New lork World Cablegram Special Telegram.) The only known case In which an American girl, married to a foreign nobleman, has never used her husband's title is that of Gene vieve Ward, the eminent actress. She lives now in London In retirement o far as the stage is concerned, but all the artistic literary and fashionable London world flocks to her "Mondays at home." She Is called the "Grand Dame" of the English theater, so stately is her presence, so Irreproachable has been her life. Wonderfully beautiful she is still, with a perfectly molded figure, hands that many a famous artist has reproduced in marble, big, dark eyes that flash fire or bubble over with fun as she talks, a delicate complexion and masses of white hair piled high on her shapely head. Genevieve Ward Is Countess Guerbel by right of marriage, but no one dares call her countess.' She hates the title, has never made theatrical capital out of It, as many actresses would have done, and does not use It under any circumstances, Now that her husband. Count Guerbel, Is dead,' there are family estates in Russia she might have, broad acres of land, vast forests and palaces. Her husband had been won to a passionate regard for her, simply because she would not tolerate his wicked life, and he wanted her to have his prop erty. But she would not accept It. She had worked - hard, had lived simply and had- accumulated wealth. But If she had been poor it would have been the same, Telia Her Life Traced y. Genevieve Ward has never allowed the story of her romantic marriage to be pub lished and her most Intimate friends know very little about it Many 1 1 them do not know that , her husband is dead now, but sitting in the cosy drawing room of her picturesque villa In Regent's park, she told her story for the World as she knitted on pair of socks for. her gardener ehe is always knitting and makes dosens of pairs of socks for her' servants and the poor of her neighborhood.. The room was full of souvenirs of her. many stage -triumphs Of the day when she played "Forget-Me-Not" from- one end of the ,world -to- the -other, giving It .over, 1,200 times; portraits of her as , tha tragedy queen - in' - "Macbeth," Becket," ... "Lucretta Borgia,.' , Henry VIII,". and other plays, At times, as she told the sad story,- she became a veritable queen of tragedy herself. ,"The beginning . happened many years ago. , I was. just IS and I was at Nice with my mother . She .was the daughter of Gideon Lee, at one . time mayor of New York, and she lived much In Paris, where the famous men and women of the day came to her salon. My father had been the American consul ' at Bristol and my brother had held various consular and diplomatic positions in Europe. It then happened that at Nice we knew all the great - society people, and there was a rumor which we knew nothing about until later that I was an heiress. Tou know the European nobility think every Ameri can girl abroad is enormously rich. "Well, at Nice that season the social lion was Count Guerbel. He drove magnificent horses, gave-' splendid dinners, was one of the handsomest men In Europe and . a brilliant talker. His family was a noted on in Russia, connected with the Imperial family. The count himself had been a play mate of the esar, Alsxander II, and one of the .page of the empress, and his brother was at this time a member of the esar's household,', -; 'Midst Flowers and Sanshlne. . "Every woman at Nice raved over Count Guerbel and it was natural enough that I should hav been- flattered by his atten t Ions and finally Infatuated with him. "He asked my mother for my hand with old ..world courtesy we thought very charming. 1 accepted and th marriage was . arranged. When-my mother sug gested the American consulate at Nice as the best place for the wedding, he made no objection. - Bo we were married there. "It was la the midst of flowers and sun shine, with delighted friends surrounding us, congratulating us. The count appeared deeply in love and was devoted to me. "But the Austrian ambassador, a friend of my mother,- went to her after the cere mony and told her very gravely that it waa not a legal marriage. The count could not be married without the esar's consent and according to the rites of th Greek church. 1 ' You see. th count hsd discovered I was not rich. He had plenty of land, but no money, and he wanted to marry me be cause he thought I had money. "This waa like a thunderbolt from a clear sky. He consented readily enough to meet us in Paris and have the ceremony per formed there ln- the Russian church. But when he arrived certain religious cere monies of his church ware being observed and we could not be married Immediately. One day he round m alone In our apart ments and tried- to get me to elope with him. . ... "A few days later he tried to poison me gentle devil. He handed me a glaas of wine, but as I was about to drink It my mother dashed it from my hand. She had seen him put a powder Into It He was so disconcerted that he fled.': "What a terrible man," th correspond snt exclaimed. "No worse than many other American girls meet at fashionable resorts in Europe and marry for the pleasure of being called 'countess' or 'duchess' and living In an an cestral palace, the actress replied.

LIPTON RECEIVES REPORT OF RESULT Expresses Surprise at Achievement of Kew Racing; Boat and Bays He Wants Seme apart In Secur ing America's Cap. NEW YORK. May 23. In a wind that ranged from a mere sephyr to an eight-knot breese. Reliance clearly proved Its su periority over Columbia and Constitution on the Long Island sound this evening. Though utHcially the race was no con test, owing to the failure of the boats to finish before :30 o'clock, enough was re vealed to prove that in his latest creation Designer Herreshoff has wrought his mas terplece. In all points of sailing, as they were brought out in the triangular course, the new ooat clearly outclassed Its rivals. Whenever conditions were at all equal it scurried away from the other yachts with ease. The tests to which the boats were sub jected were mainly confined to measuring their respective merits over reaches, close and broad, little opportunity being afforded of showing what they may be capable of ln working to windward or running to lee ward. iA what little chance, there was to form an estimata of the boats in these two latter respects, the new boat demonstrated Its superiority. Bo much for Reliance. As for Coiumoia and Constitution, the contest was inde cisive, though when the time limit had ex Dlred Columbia had a slight advantage over the Belmont boat.' At I'M the "blue peter" was hoisted and the boats made for th starting line, in the preliminary Jockeying for position Cap tain Barr of Reliance had the Desi oi n. poking the long bowsprit of the new boat over the line nine seconds in advance of Constitution and one minute and forty sec onds before Columbia.

Tiollance . be Kan to pull away ai once from Constitution with almost Incredible swiftness, considering that the wind was barely sufficient to bulge the other big headsalls. Columbia, too, was in a oaa way, owing to its failure to get over the tin within the time limit, thereby suffering a handicap of twenty-four seconds. Both Constitution and Columbia went ore to leeward,, looking to And favoring wlnda nf tide currents. ' Her Columbia gained rapidly on the Belmont boat and about midway in the leg. overhauled It Then Reliance became ' becalmed and the other two boats began to lessen the distance that separated them from the leader. . With scarcely a puff to help him. Cap tain Sarr set his spinnaker, but this did not avail him anything, as tt shut oft whatever little wind the balloon had been drawing, and In short order Its lead of more than two miles was cut down to less than a quarter of a mile. Reliance Is Yet Ahead. . As he could not get his spinnaker to pull, Captain Barr took It In, only to reset it again a few minutes later as he drew near the Arst mark. They turned the buoy that marked tha end of th first leg as follows: Reliance, 5:23:60; Columbia, 5:26:30; Con stitution, 6:29:10. Just as the boats were finishing the first leg the wind freshened, and as Reliance came about and spread its sails for the second mark it sped ' away with a. fine burst of speed. Gradually it crept away from Columbia, which was being over hauled by Constitution. Steadily the wind increased and steadily Reliance Increased Its lead. The second leg, a close reach, was negotiated In about sixteen minutes by Re liance, the turns being msde as follows: Reliance. 6:3:60; Columbia, 5:43:10; Con stitution, 6:46:10. Proves Herself a Great Racer. . It waa after Reliance had started for home with Its lee rail awash that it proved to tno , thousands who were watching it ashors and afloat what , a racer, it Is. It simply flew away from Columbia and Con stitution, and In about ten minutes had opened up a lead of over two miles, which was being rapidly Increased when the com mittee signed a proclamation for the race. In th meantime Constitution had very ma terially out down Columbia's lead, and at the finish was nearly abeam of the old defender.- Llptoa Is Mich Sarprlsed. GLASGOW, May 23 Sir Thomas Llpton, in an interview with an Associated Press correspondent regarding the excellent form shown hv Reliance, admitted that he wus somewh.it surprised that Reliance , wss so much better than Columbia, but he pointed out that Colombia waa never fast at drift ing. He said he reserved judgment regard ing Reliance until he should bear of its per formance at top racing speed. He wss not sorry to think that America had a good boat In Reliance. He wanted the cup, but he .1,0 wanted some sport in getting It. He believed that h had an exceptionally good vessel,- better than had yet ben shown, but he wanted no runaway victory. "The closer the races the better It will please me," remarked Sir Thomas, "pro vided Shamrock III finishes on the right side." H saw nothing in Reliance's vic tory to sh his belief In Shsmrock III.
