PARIS, May 23. (New York World Ca
blegram Special Telegram.) A dangerous
situation Is confronting Premier Combes..
Conservative observers fear grave dis
orders and already there has been con
siderable bloodshed. The disorder in the
Chamber of Deputies only reflected that
throughout France. 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. Now that the debate Is open
between church authorities in France and
the , rights of man, let us destroy this
shameful compact which binds us still to
tha Roman church and overthrow this
worm-eaten edifice the last stronghold of
the reaction. Down with the church.
The . Auto rite In an editorial entitled
"Combes' End" asserts:
"Combes at the supreme moment of
struggle has shown bis cowardice. The
feeling of France Is not with him. '. Neces
sarily he leaves his baneful work un
finished and hesitates In hi persecution,
He who had thought to cause Catholics
to tremble, to dictate to the , Done, to
terrorise the bishops, to cause fire and
bloodshed, lies now like - a bideous 'reptile
stamped . upon no longer able to bite.
What good is net Combes is finished and
before long he will be thrown Into the
Parliamentary garbage box like a piece of
putrid meat."
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."
Combes replied: "Don't you owe me a
areat deal for a service like that?"
Another cartooa shows two deputies In
front of .the Chambers, one accompanied
by bis young son. The first deputy asks:
"What did you do during the Parlia

LONDON, May 23. (New lork World

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

had worked - hard, had lived simply and
had- accumulated wealth. But If she had
been poor it would have been the same,

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

always knitting and makes dosens of pairs
of socks for her' servants and the poor of

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,', -;

"Every woman at Nice raved over Count
Guerbel and it was natural enough that I
should hav been- flattered by his atten

old 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.

Adjntant General Arrives Incxpect
dip and Local Members Hav
to Be Sent For.
The local companies of the National
Guard, the Thurston Rifles, Omaha Guards,
Millard Rifles and South Omaha cavalry
troop,, were called together suddenly Satur
day night for inspection by Adjutant Gen
eral J, H. Culver of the National Guard.
The men were rousted out from homes,
dances and the theater quickly and a hur
ried Inspection made according to the ab
breviated regulations of an overworked and
hurried National Guard officer.
The local companies are to be inspected
by the regular army officer detailed for this
duty during Monday, Tuesday and Wednes
day of this week, and It la required that
each company be Inspected by a National
Guard officer regularly detailed ' for this
duty prior to the Inspection by the regular
army officer. As the state inspection, as
originally planned for, failed to matertalixe,
this hurried step became necessary and
was carried out ln great haste. Afterward
the guard will be supplied with Krag-Jorg-ensen
rifles by the national government as
arranged for by the last congress.
General Culver abort, '.gray, soldierly
was considerably pleased' at the showing
made by the Omaha companies.
Your three companies here," he said,
"made a very good showing considering th
short notice they had to prepare tor in
spection and I am well pleased. We were
forced to come so suddenly because of tha
plans of Major Krepps of the regular army
being changed and the date of his Inspec
tion here put forward one -week. These In
spections are made in compliance with the
requirements of the Dick bill and If the
state establishment I found to be up to
the standard, as it will be, the regular
army weapon will be Issued, so that the
equipment will be uniform ln the whole
service - as required by the law.' The
South Omaha company will be inspected
Monday, the Omaha Guards and Millard
Rifles Tuesday and the Thurstons Wednes
day." .

Sltantlon Worse In Chicago.
CHICAGO. May 23.-The laundry strlk
Is to be prosecuted with renewed igor, a
two hours' conference today between em
ployers and employes having resulted In a
deadlock. 1 . .
Propositions nd counter propositions
were submitted , and , after futile efforts
to, arrive at an. amicable settlement com
mittees representing the Laundry Workers'
union,' the Chicago Federation of Labor,
the engineer, firemen and teamster unions
withdrew from th conference, declaring
that all negotiations were off.
Labor officials assert that all anions
affiliated with th Chicago Federation of
Labor will now be brought into-the fight
and' that the war would not be directed
against the laundries alone, but that union
drivers would be instructed not- to deliver
goods or supplies of any kind, ven to
the homes of the laundry owners.
Tha deadlock occurred over a olause pro
viding that no sympathetic strike should
be called during the life of the proposed
agreement and for the arbitration of. all
differences. , .
Demands of Freight Handlers.
General managers of the various railroad
centering ln Chicago would not commit
themselves today by expressing an opinion
on the subject of the demands made by
their freight handlers. They have not yet
returned any answer to the demands and
would not state the nature of the reply
that would be given. . -j.
It is evident, however, from their de
meanor, that their answer wHI be a refusal
to grant the concessions asked. The gen
eral managers evidently expect a strike
and are preparing to meet it should it
occur. " '
The present attitude of their employes Is
considered by them unreasonable ln view
of the adjustment made nine months ago.
. Laandrles to Resume.
. CHICAGO. May 23. Laundries in Chicago
probably will resume work on Monday. The
strike, which has tied up Chicago laundries
for twenty-two days and ha caused untold
inconvenience to the public, was settled so
far as the laundry workers were concerned
tonight at a conference of employers and
employes. The demands ef the laundry
drivers ar still under consideration, hut
ail will probably be settled before Monday.
The agreement between the laundry work
ers and the employers Is a compromise.
Employers are permitted to employ help
regardless of membership in a union, but
j they are not to discriminate against union
men. The question of wages will be con
sidered by a committee during the. next
thirty days. Arbitration of further differ
ences is provided for.
To Compromise Contempt Cases.
