With the sole object of ascertaining on
first hand authority the actual truth re
specting Emperor William' condition, your
correspondent haa made exhaustive inqui
ries among the officers and the crew of
11 r. Robert Goelot'a yacht Nahma. which
has Judt arrived here from the Mediter
ranean. The emperor visited the Nahma.
more than once nnd lunched aboard at
(Syracuse, Sicily, a few wteeks ago.
Captain Harvey, who has known the em
peror seven years, said:
"The stories of Emperor William's ill
health are all lies hatched by financial
cliques for their own purposes. When I
saw him In Sicily the emperor was as well
as you or I. We had him aboard five
times. He was the same healthy, happy
looking man on each occasion and was
taking an Interest In everything In life,
as he always did. When leaving his 'maj
esty asked me whether he should see me
at the Kiel regatta. That Inquiry only
hows you that he Is not oppressed by
any kind of Illness."
It Is very evident by the way one and
all spoke that the emperor was a favorite
aboard the Nahma. All maintained, when
questioned separately, (hat he Is perfectly
fit The steward, who stood behind the
emperor's chair at Syracuse every time he
bad meals aboard, sold:
"I waited on the emperor, and every
time he laughed, chatted and Joked, as
though he had not a care In the world. He
was the life and soul of the company. Not
only that, but he enjoyed the good things
with the appetite of a schoolboy. He drank
no spirits nor wine, but only - mineral
waters, flavored with natural fruit' Juices.
You would never think he had been 111, If
you had not seen It In the papers."
Your correspondent made very particular
Inquiries of all. hands about the condition
of Ihe emperor's voice and how he used it.
All declared that triers was nothing wrong
with the voice; that It was perfectly clear
and strong, and that he spoke Just as
freely as anybody else. . The unanimity
of these witnesses was remarkable.. But
they denied that they had.feeti advised, or
warned against' saying anything tending
to confirm current reports., ', . ( .

about this select political circle," said this

PARIS, June 11. (New York World Ca
blegramSpecial Telegram.) Of all the
army of modern playwrights there Is none
more clever or popular than Marcel Pro
vost, the celebrated, French novelist and
dramatist. But he Is an example of a man
who haa won his way to the top, by the
hardest kind of toil. With him life has
had but one purpose and that is the word
work.' His latest effort at dramatisation
was "The Feeblest," lately produced at the
Comedie Francalse. Like an of the other
plays writ Jen by him In recent years, it
has been remarkably well received.
M. Prevoat has a natural gifj for letters.
He Is a man of tremendous energy, and
writes all of hta plays at a great speed.
For eight or even ten hours a day ho will
work as if his life depended on It, turning
out reams of manuscript. At such times
he has a way of forgetting that there Is
such a thing In the world as food, and no
one has the temerity to disturb him.
Few authors of the present day enjoy an
Income anywhere near that of M. Prevost.
He lives In princely style In Parts and has
a. beautiful estate In the country, where
he goes for seversl months In the summer.
M. Prevost Is always crowded with orders
from his publishers.

Invited to all the royal parties given In
the last fortnight. Her dresses eclipse any
thing seen in London ball rooms, and her
wonderfully perfect back and shoulders
are the envy as well aa the admiration
of one and all among the fair aex.
Sensationally low was the gown she wore
at Devonshire house. Some pronounced It
Improper. At the back It was cut right

Mrs. Astor's gown bore the test of the
leveled lorgnettes and the eyeglossess, for
It was a ouperb creation by Worth of dull
gold cloth, through which ran shimmering
lines of glittering threads. Her neck looked
like alabaster and twisted and colled upon
her throat were priceless Topes of strung
pearls and diamonds.
. At Lady Farquhars on Tuesday night,
when both ths king and the queen dined
and afterward stayed to a email dance, to
which the most exclusive people In Eng
land were Invited, Mrs. Astor magnetised
even the eyes of royalty. Never has Worth
sent out such an advertisement as the
dresses worn by this New York woman.
There la great consternation and wonder
ment as to the cost of the gowns and the
value of her Jewels.
Mrs. Arthur Paget was Indeed proud of
her compatriot, as all eyes were leveled
at her. Mrs. Paget was superb In silver
cloth with some mauve chiffon veiling on
the shoulders. Although she looked ex
tremely well, Mrs. Astor, of course, car
ried off the palm for beauty and dis
tinction. . .. ,

will be the- first entertainment the widow
has given since her husband died two years
ago. Although the, invitations say a "small
party," Mrs. Mackay's hospitality Is too
well known to everybody to question the
magnificence of the concerts she will give.
Mrs. Mackay attended the big Catholic
bazar at Princes and spent $1,030 there.
She met the "duchess of Conrtuught, who
opened the baaar and chatted with the
duke for a few minutes. Then she walked

One of the most striking figures In the
room was Mrs. Elnstoln. resplendent in
wonderful diamonds and a gorgeous gown.
She brought her daughter, in white satin,
with a broad satin bow in her hair. The
Elnstelns will give a dance next month In

WASHINGTON, June U.-iNew York
Herald Service Special to The Bee.)
Within the next few days the commission
ers of the District of Columbia must decide
whether a legation property when owned
personnlly by a minister Is entitled to ex
emption of taxes as It is when owned by
the country represented.
The controversy haa come up over the
legation property of Sweden and Norway.
Ths assessor of the district has already de
cided to advise In the result of hjs Investi
gations that the request for exemption be
not granted. However, the matter has
been referred to the district commissioners.
They will deal with It with the utmost
deference to the distinguished foreigner,
since It Is regarded as an affair Involving
Two years ago Mr. Grip, the Swedish
minister, applied for exemption of taxation
of the legation property. In the preceding
December the residence at 21"9 S street, N.
W., had been purchased and the deed made
out to "Mr. Grip, envoy extraordinary and
The assessor In Investigating the matter
learned that the deed was so drawn that
the property was held by Mr. Grip "for his
heirs and consigns forever." The assessor
passed the matter along to the commission
ers and they asked for an opinion from
the corporation counsel, who advised that
the property be exempted whether In the
name of the government or the minister.
This was done nnd the property has been
exempted for the Inst two years.
Last week, however, Mr. Grip sold the
property to Mrs. Delia C. Ellwood, using
his own name In the transfer and making
no mention of his government. ' The same
day he purchased a corresponding prop

was said that he profited several thousand

CAUSE OF BRAZIL'S TROUBLE
Somethlnar Abent tbe District Over
Which It Has Argument
(Copyright by New York Herald Co.. -1804.)
WASHINGTON. June ll.-(New York
Herald Service Special to The Bee.) The
constantly recurring trouble between Braill
and Peru Is of worldwide Interest. A great
wealth ofVubber Is there. Both Braill and
Peru seek to develop the riches of the In
terior region of which even they know lit
Acre Is so Indefinite a region that when
Bolivia entered Into the treaty with Braill
It had ,to transfer Its dispute with Peru
over a part, jr supposed part, of that
reglou. vti' is ,?hat is bothering Braill
and Pet ii iov. The statement and dis
patches In regard to the subject treat It
aa If the whole territory was well known
and was of easy access. Actually the only
access Is. from the Atlantic through long
voyages and from the Pacific over moun
tain walls and across difficult trails till
the navigable streams are reached.
Just what the purposes of (he Brazilian
government are with reference to the Acre
territory acquired from Bolivia by the
treaty of Petropolls is not known. The
export duty Is an Important source of
revenue. It Is presumed thst a profitable
Income will be hsd in granting concessions
to exploit that territory. It Is expected that
enough will be obtained from this source
to provide the $10,000,000 Indemnity paid to
Bolivia and also the amount which will be
necessary for the construction of the rail
way around the Maderla falls.
A very valuable conceaslon for exploiting
rubber In southern Peru Is owned by an
American mining company, whose conces
sion piobsbly will take It up to the rubber
regions of the' Mad re de DIos river and
possibly even to the borders of the present
disputed xone. It Is building roads through
the tropical forests.
A German steamship company made ex
plorations a little north of this region
some time ago. but did not follow them up.

In France hsve sent expeditions and have

deported Victor, Colo., miners, sent out
from their state on a special train In charge
of half a hundred militiamen, were liter
ally dumped from the train today and left
destitute upon the prairie. With a parting
vol!e, fired Into the air, the militiamen
deserted their charges and returned west.
Later the unfortunate miners were turned
back to Colorado by an armed Kansas
sheriff and forty deputies.
The miners had bezn placed on the train,
which was a special made up by the au
thorities in control in the disturbed Colo
rado town, and In charge of well-armed
militiamen started for the east late yester
day. At La Junta, Colo., where the first stop
was made, the cars were closely guarded.
Tho miner were not permitted to leave the
cars, nor were any of the hundred or so
men who gathered at the station allowed to
communicate with them.
When a point half a mile west Of the
Kansas state ' line was reached early
today a halt was made. It was a deserted
spot on the wild prairie, with no railway
station, eating house nor farmer's house
within several miles.
' Told to Go Kast.
Without delay the men were disembnrked,
the engine was reversed and the militiamen
re boarded the train Colonel L. W. Ken
nedy, the officer In command of the guard,
instructed the miners plainly that they
were not wanted In Colorado and told them
they had better go east.
Half a dosen of the soldiers fired a volley
Into the air to Intimidate the men and
the train started west with the militiamen,
leaving the miners to make their way to
some habitation as best they might.
The men started east afoot, but were met
by Sheriff Jack Prady of Hamilton county,
Kansas, and forty armed deputies, who
ordered the men back to Colorado. Three
of the miners had already started east
r.foot. The others retraced their steps at
the command of the Kansas officers along
the railroad track westward. After a long
weary trump they strnggled Into Holly,
Colo., a small, town near the Colorado
Kansas boundary, where they 'wore fur
nished food at the. big Balvatlon Army sta

Despite the emphatic command of Colonel
Kennedy the men, after a rest, again took
up their Journey west and started over

on Colorado soli, ninety-one union miners
from the Cripple Creek district were un
loaded from a special Santa Ft train on
the prairie today, one-half - mile from the
Colorado-Kansas state line, and left to shift
for themselves. The exiles were disem

notified Lieutenant Cole that under no cir

unionists were not wanted in the Sunflower

Lieutenant Cole assured him that the train
would proceed no farther. Then the order
to quit the train waa given In a hurry.

and severely handled and notified by the
Kansas authorities that they would not be

spirit of the men broke. Many of them

Sheriff Adams haa returned here and re
ported that the Dsnver & Rio Grande train
robbers are completely rurrounded In a
patch of brush at the east side of the
junction of Divide creek and the Grand
river. A posse of 100 deputies were pick
eted about the place and he expressed the
belief that It was fv possible for the men
to escape except by rTimmlng the Grand
river. An attempt to do that, he ssld,
seemed almost certain death, as the river
at that point Is nearly half a mllo wide and
has a tremendous current.

ST. PETERSBURG, June 1L (New York
Herald Cablegram Special Telugram to
Tho Bee.) General Kouropatkln's dispatch
announcing the Japanese occupancy of Sin
Yen and Salmatsza Is recognised as strik
ing a very eerlous note In the campaign and
denoting clearly what had ben already In
dicated a day or two ago In my telegrams,
the necessity of the Russian force retliimr.
The unexpected number of Japanese troop
threatening the Russian left flunk makes
it more than ever necessary for large re
inforcements to render Kouropntkln oble
to outflank the enemy, w,hieh Is now threat
ening to outflank him. Until he has got
such a force he cannot move forward. If
the enemy connects with the Mukden road
Kouropatkln must move back; This morn
ing, with Stsu pass In the power of the
Japanese, It Is freely admitted that the
situation has taken a turn for the worse
with the enemy thus occupying the princi
pal strategic point on the road to Mukden.
You must read with the utmost suspic
ion telegrams dated Che Foo, Shanghai,
IJao jYang and Mukden, and especially
thoee purporting to come on the Informa
tion of Chinese fugitives, which are mainly
a tissue of Imaginative pictures, painted
cither to please the Japanese or tho Rus
sians, as the ease mny be.
Bound to Go Limit.
Reports of violent attacks on Port Ar
thur are necessarily untrue, since It Is
known that the Japanese cannot possibly
get their siege, guns In a position for a
long while yet. The reports recently pub
lished that after the fall of Port Arthur
Russia wlil be prepared to accept media
tion are totally untrue. Should the place
fall It will more than ever bind Russia in
Its determination to carry on the war to
tho end. ' .
'Well be It understood, whatever may
have been the opinion ss to the necessity
or wisdom of the war's beginning, with
the events of a disastrous nature that have
Blnce taken place renders unanimous the
feeling throughout the country that Russia
must pursue the war to a victorious end.
The report that. the submarine boat Pro
tector haa been smuggled away from New
port News for Japan excites the highest
Indlgnatlona'here. As the Novoe Vremya
puts tt: '
"America declared neutrality, vet It sends
a submarine to Japan. We hope there will
be an Immediate explanation of this disa
greeable Incident forthcoming from the
American government." ( .

Russians Retire lu Order.
ST. PETERSBURG. June 11. Describing
the fljiht at glu Yen a correspondent of the
Associated Press says ths Russian forces
were south of the town guurdlng the Slu
Yen-Takushan road. The- artillery was
strongly posted on the hills along the road
from Slu Yen to Tyandupoodaa, ' with a
mixed company guarding tha flank and
another company posted on Ijooduopfy hill.
The Rumlan transport train was at the
village of Keuloonsl, guarded by Cossucka.
The Japanese first appeared on the road
between Uhnasa and Slu Yen, and moved
on the Russian position In close formation.
They were met with an excellently directed
artillery lire and forced to retire with
Meanwhile (he Japanese Infantry ad
vanced upon the hill occupied by the Cos
sacks to whose assistance three companies
were successively csl)rd up. After a gal
lant fiKht of two hours the Cossacks re
tired, but It was a barren victory for the
Japanese. The Russian artillery was
turned on the hill vncated by the Cossacks
and the Japanese found the position un
tunable. The Japanese battery was tjulitkly
silenced nnd fled out of range of the Rus
slan shells. '
The Japanese finally turned the position
held by the Cossacks on the hill eot of
Slu Yen and forcd the Russians to retire.
The movement was executed lit an orderly
manner and covered by their nrtlllcry the
Russians retired to Modyanka and thence
through the hills to tha Hal Cheng road
