AGED COUNTESS DEAD Was an 'American Woman and Matriarch of Great Ducal House. [CojTTlriit. IPC*3, by th» Brentwood Cbaiyany.] Old Countesa Olivier d* la Rochefoucauld, matriertrb of th« ducal house of that name, who has just died in Paris at the age of nearly ninety, was &a American woman, a M!sa Eupnraa'.ne Montgr>m*ry. of New Orleans;, member of a family which Is *■ well known in Washington and in »w Tork a* in the Crescent City. Her husband. fin Jat« Count Olivier, who died more than twenty years ago. was a son of Duke Francis de la Rochefoucauld. The latter emigrated, along with the royal princes of Bourbon, from France- at the time of the great Revolution at the- close of the elghtecrth century, married at The Hague a L«evan• -.<» lady, a native of Constantinople, and by her had three tons. The eldest. Olivier, marrtefi away back in 1853 Miss Montgomery, of New Orleans; the second led to the altar Anne Perron, daughter and heiress at a French soldier of fortune, who, having taken service under some of the native rulers of India, M their troops there against the English under Sir Arthur WeUesley, afterward first Duke of Wellinjrion. When his employers finally surrendered to the English. General Perron returned to France, end having "shaken the pagoda tree." an the sayin? gnea. to some purpose, found himself In the possession of a colossal fortune, which was inherited by his daughter, born of his union to the daughter of an IndJan rajah. All this wealth of Indian origin is now in the possession of the grandchildren of old Countess Frederick de la Rochefourau'd. nee Perron. They are the Austrian Countess n—.ertera and the Italian Duchess SalTiati. the Princess Lanceliettl and Princess Chigi, all three of Italy. Ths other brother of Olivier, namely. Hippolyte, b'ko married an heiress, the daughter of a rich ■Vjaj named Roux, and his eon. Gaston de la Rochefoucauld, is the widower of Sir Horace Rumhold's fister Emily, whose first marriage, to George Henry Cavendish, was severed by divorce in 18-jS, end who was the adopted daughter of Baron Delmar, of Berlin, banker of Frederick "William 111 ar.d the first Jew to be ennobled by the Prussian Crown. Old Countess O!i\i»r de la Rochefoucauld's eldest son. Guy. was sentenced three years ago to a term in Jail for breaking his cane on the head cf a Paris policeman in a church door riot, at the Cbn« when the French government was endeavoring to take an inventory of the possessions and treasures of the various churches about the country. Count Guy, who is a man of about fifty-five, insisted that if he had rendered himself guilty of ar,.v -violence, it was because he had caught sight cf the policeman whom he had caned in the act of maltreating his twenty-thre«-year-old son. Count Henry. The authorities, however, took the ground that it was Henry who was ill treating the policemar:, ST.d sent him to jail also for three months, r.tae!y. In the model penitentiary of Fresnes. Couth Guy and hie eldest son. as well as his brothers and nephews, havo always been noted for their combative disposition and for their readiness to right on each and every occasion, which is ascribed hi France to the American blood .in their reins that comes to them through their mother and from those Louisiana planter ancestors of hers, that i« to Fay. a class particularly impatient of contradiction. All of them de la Rochefoucaulds bear the t1tl« of count. The head of the entire family is their ftcond -nd third cousin.

ANOTHER. COMMAND FOR LORD CHARLES, Report* of official origin are being industriously propagated by friends of the present Cabinet, to ye effect 'hat Admiral Lord Charles Boresford, on the impending termination of bis command of the great Channel Fleet, will be appointed to one- of the • -" important berths in the service on shore. Pos- FiKj- this Is merely intended to arrest th« popular sgitafien which has been caused by the general impression • -at Lord Charles Beresford has been pubjected to p-oM'y unfair treatment by the Admiralty, end that the officer who stands highest In public favor as the foremost commander of the British navy Is being sacrificed to the Jealousy and animosity of cliques at "Whitehall. This agitation has grown to such an extent as to become a source cf much concern to the Cabinet. It is possible, however, that the latter may be really in earnest about giving Lord Charles a shore command. For it would not only have the effect of putting an end to OH movement in his behalf, but would also prevent - ■ from entering Parliament and from becoming one of the bitterest critic* and foes of the Inlet ration. A* long as he continues in active *err!c*. either ashore or afloat, he is forced by the laws of discipline to remain silent and to refrain from assailing th» Admiralty; and it is no secret that on several occasions he has been given command, even by First Lords of the Admiralty who were opposed to him, merely in order to reduce him to eilence. There are only three shore commands open to an nfnc«?r of Ms rank, namely, those of the Nore, of Plymouth and of Portsmouth. Of these, that of Portsmouth Is the Boat lucrative and important, carrying with It an official residence, possession of a steam yacht, the governorship of Portsmouth, and * rtiary and allowances amounting to about 120.000 a yeir. Portsmouth, moreover, is England's great«t rsfcval arsenal and stronghold, and. besides this, er..toy« the advantage of being but a little over an hour's run from London. Unfortunately, however, fcr Lord Charles, the Portsmouth command Is filled by Admiral Hir Arthur Fanshawe, who Is his junior ia point of age, and who was on y appointed a few mor-thj ago: and the Mm* thing applies to Plymouth, ka which Admiral Sir William Fawkes was asalarieO or.':y last year. As for the Nave, a successor to Sir Oerard Noel hss oniy Ju*t been appointed. Portsmouth i* probsfcly the only shore b-rth which Lord Charles «nooM be willing to accrpt as in keeping with h'.f rank; and if it Is really Intended to place him there, the Admiralty will ' '■ forced to perpetrate anmb'r piece cf unfairness, by removing Sir Arthur Fanshawe from the blue ribbon of the servlco inrK IWors the completion of Ms term, and. In fact, Just after getting settled there Lady Charles tv"ul<J b* in her element at Portsmouth.

GRANDSON OF A KING. *>;■! count Gustav Brandenburg. v' oae death has Just taken place at his chateau of Domanze, in BOhU. In his ninetieth year, was the last survivirij? irrtnoson of Kin« Frederic* William 11. who. • eVtaaeatlr «t lra Ti£c merits were r-t tli» most extra - Clnarv character. Frederick William, while crown prince, had b*-*n forced by his uncle and predeeee*^r. Frederick th« Great, to wed, first of all. Princess Elizabeth of Brunswick, whom he divorced, aed th«*n Prlnc*ss I>oui»e i if lie«s«, both unions TtfUn: •ntl^-ly lovelf-ts and brought about solely tor political and dynamic reason*. K«n» Frederick William and Wue*n Louise mad* at* pretenre whatever of entertaining the slightest •dttctioo for one another, and after they bad provided for the continuation of th* dynasty by the birth of ;om» eight children. th« eldest of whom succeeded to the throne as Frederick William 111 of Prussia, the Queen gave her ready consent to her consort's morganatic union with the beautiful Countess Julia Voss. The latter would not listen to the King's suit unless it received the sanction of the Church, and clergy were found who were sufficiently devoid of conscientious scruples to perform the ceremony of morganatic* marriage on November 12. 17S7— that Is to sAy, notwithstanding the fact that him marriage with the Queen was in no sens* abrogated. The young countess, who seems to have entertained compunctions as to the value of the blessing of the Church obtained under such circumstances, died a little more than a year later, not long after Eivine birth to a son. who received the title of Count Ingenhelm: and though she was deeply and sincerely mourned by the King, h« consoled himself a few years later, in 1791. by contracting another morganatic marriage of the same kind with Countess Sophie Doenhoft, Queen Louise again giving her consent in writing to the ecclesiastical union. Countess Sophie Doenhoff, though very lovely, was entirely different In character to Countess Jr.! la. Voss. She was extremely ambitious, and took such an active part in political and court intri«rues that she ended by forfeiting her husband's affection and Incurring the hatred of his family and of his ministers to such an extent that she was banished to Keuchatel. She bore him, however, two children, a son and a daughter. The son was created, not long after his birth, Count Brandenburg, and died in 1555. as general of the army, and after having filled for a number of years the office o" Prime Minister of Prussia. Of his three sons, the. two eldest died as generals in ISS2, and th« third and only survivor. Count Gustav. has Just been laid to his rest, without leaving issue, the title of Count Brandenburg thus becoming extinct. MARQUISE DE FONTENOY. MME, NORDICA'S CONCERT. Th«» recital of songs by Mme. Lillian Xordlca, twice postponed because of the singer's indisposition, took place in Carnegie Hall yesterday afternoon and served, first of all. to show how strong a hold upon popular admiration she has. The audience which had assembled to hear her filled the hall : its outpourings of approbation were many, enthusiastic, most cordial and undeniably sincere. In the same degree they were honorable to the artist, whose great services in behalf of dramatic music are remembered with particular gratitude at the present deplorable Juncture of affairs In our opera houses. Mme. Nordlca's programme was one of generous proportions, but was provided with breathing spells in which Mr. Albert Spaldlng played violin solos to pianoforte accompaniments by Mr. Andre Benolst. Mr. Benoist also played all of Mme. Tordlca'a occompaniments except those for a group of seven songs by Brahms, Van der Stucken, Tschalkowsky. Richard Strauss and Schumann, in which *he had the help of Mr. Walter Damrosch, and who, coming 1 unannounced, shared the honors with her. The second of the three Schumann song* ( "Irh grolle nicht") was stormlly redemanded. Mr. Benoisfs contributions to the pleasures of the afternoon also cmII for praise. There were no traces of illness in Mme. Nordlca's voice, which, when not strained, was luscious and opulent in quality. A CONCERT OF CHAMBER MUSIC. The Knelscl Quartet gave the last of its concerts of chamber music In Mendelssohn Hall last night. The gentlemen had the assistance of Miss Katharine Goodson. who played the pianoforte part in Brahma's quartet in <» minor (op. 38), which brought the concert to a close. It was a happy conclusion to a series of entertainments which have been especially enjoyable this season. Three movements (first, second and last) of Dvorak's "American" quartet, and a cheery quartet In <i major by Mozart preceded the Brahms number— music ingratiating in every measure and free from every perplexity. The Joyous spirit which infused It when it gushed from the hearts, fancies and brains of its Veators was reflected again in Its recreation and mad« its hearers happy. Miss Qoodaoa'a co-operation was worthy of her artistic fellows, she pairing the crispr"«s. lucidity and gracefulness of their utterances In the final number and winning a special measure of approbation by the brilliancy of Brahms « concluding gypsy rondo.

MJaa trinlfrerl Holt, daughter of Henry Holt, the author and publisher, will speak at tho Board of Education Building to-night. The board is contemplating the establishment of a number of classes for the instruction of blind children of school age. Miss Holt who is secretary of the New Tork Association for the Blind, at No. US East 59th street, will talk in favor of the adoption of the modified Braille system of raised letters as opposed to the New Tork point system. There will be a public hearing to-night before the committee on elementary schools, and advocates of both methods will present their views. A letter from Mies Helen Keller to Miss Holt, strongly favoring the Braille system, will also be submitted to the committee. The fai-t that one-quarter of all the blind children in all the blind schools of this country are unnecessarily blind was emphasized by Miss Holt and her associate. Miss D Flske Rogers, yesterday. BMnd stenographers were busily engaged in the ad- Joining room with the correspondence) of the association. Downstairs several blind women, young and old, were making baskets and weaving at small looms. Mias Holt said: "There are In th« United States more than sixtyfour thousand Mind persons. For the. blindness of sixteen thousand of these, many of whom are blind from one cause alone, there is no excuse except ignorance and neglect. "The ignorance is of many types; ignorance of conditions which produce blindness, ignorance of the car» of the eyes necessary in the schoolroom, and ignorance of the delicacy of the sensitive organ of sight Neglect Is also of many kinds, but the most serious is the neglect of the prevention of infections of the even of the new born, and of prompt and adequate treatment of the resultant inflammation when It occurs. Knowledge and promptness Are the two great factors in the prevention of blindness." The disease Is known as infant ophthalmia. It Is said to be an infectious disease, appearing at the time of birth, easily prevented if precautionary measures axe taken at once, or within a few hours after birth, and curable If, when it develops, skilled medical treatment can be secured quickly. It is, however, fatal to the sight if prompt preventive and curative measures are not taken, and ends In the destruction of the eyeballs. "The responsibility for preventable blindness must be laid to the charge of those who are a hie, or ought to be able to prevent it." said Miss Holt. "But a knowledge on the part of the public of tli^ dangers which may threaten the eyes will safeguard many eyes that otherwise would be lost. The blindness of babies must be prevented where possible." It is considered of great Importance to extend this knowledge, it was said, so that parents everywhere may insist on the use of a suitable prophylactic In the eyes of the new born, and that the careless members of the medical profession and trained nurses may be brought to a sense of their duty. Th« strangest Ignorance exists In the minds of people as to what th» blind can do. she said. Ehe Started the association work three years ago because Phe felt that the heaviest burden upon the blind was not blindness but idleness. She han given them work to do. and they have already BBC ceeded 88 makers of brooms, brushes, mat.", basket*. In simple carpentry and weaving, cobbling, typewriting-, piano tuning, massage, knitting, crocheting and plain *»w!ng. Dr. William H. Maxwell. City Superintendent of Schools, mid: "I here seen with admiration and delight th* work don* by Mtaa Holt's blind protegee In her rooms In F.a.°t l*th street. Whan I Me how much hns been accomplished by her and her society, I feel all th* more encouraged and stimulated to do Bomething for the blind children of this city. who havo not yet had a Chance In the public schools." • We are without a cent of money.*' Miss Holt added "Our endowment consist* of a debt amounting to ji.orm. We have the promise of mm <f we can raise m,** It appear* discouraging, hut this work cannot fall any mere than th law rf gravity." NEW GERMAN* THEATRE. Dr. Wuellner in "Salome." Dr. I.urtwlK Wfllln»r, WHOM song*, or «■••■£■ recitations, have met with extraordinary popular favor, b"K«n last nigh? « abort acting engagrment at th« New German Theatre, appearing as Herodea in a German version of Oscar Wilde's "Salome."

To his fju.illflcatlons as a vocalist Dr. Wiillner adds genuine dramatic sensibility, and his portrayal last night of the degenerate and superstitious Jewish Tetrarch was «n nrtiMlr" aocotnpllahment of th« first quality. Miss HedwiK Belcher was the Salome. Her physical attractions were exactly fitted to th" part, and i-h* ueed her fine talents to give justified but necessarily repellent emphasis to the abnormalities of Wilde's daughter of Herodlas. The part of Herodtaa was well taken t>y Miss JulU-tt* Barthelmy. The pjr-r<» was In every way well given. As a poetlude, to take the bitter taste out of the mouths of the audience, Arthur Pchnltrler's clever faro. "Llteratur." was produced, with Eugen Burg In the leading part. This burlesque, on the modem tendency to embody actual correspondence and other exhibits from actual life in literary maaterpleeea In well known hero.

"The circus may come and the circus may go. but the Hippodrome is always with us." remarked a seasoned playgoer last night after a casual visit to the playhouse in Sixth avenue. He had Just seen another "thriller" that had been ar)<i«-ri to the circus features of the Hippodrome. A young woman named CDora Is the performer in it. It is a new "loop the loop." and the audience appeared to like It. And it Is only an Incident of the spectacles of "The Battle* in the Skies," "Sporting Daya," "The Ballot of the Beaonm," etc., which comprise the varied entertainment. To-night the performers and employes of the Hippodrome will have their annual ball at Palm Garden. The, fun will begin after the evening performance and will be In progress until daylight tomorrow.

State Committee Probabh/ Will Keep Out of Limelight. rp v ta The Trihun* ' Albany 1 . March 23.— 1f the Republican state organization has no concerted plans for killing Governor Hughes's direct nomination bill, as State Chairman Woodruff declared last night, anti-Hughes men in the legislature, and more particularly in the Assembly, have about perfected a plan In great detail. This includes rot only the death of the direct nominations biil and the New York City charter, but of the Public Service legislation, so far as it would put telephone and telegraph companies under the Jurisdiction of the commission. Aa a sort of offset, if the anti-Hughes leaders had their way they would pass some sort of legislation stiffening existing primary laws a bit and the proposed amendments to the existing Publio Service commission's laws It seems proba.ble that the state committee will be kept out of the limelight so far as possible in the fight which will be waged against Governor Hughes's legislation. Already the professional politicians have seen in various quarters of tha state indications of restivenes on the part of the plain voters at the activity of certain loaders against the Governor and the direct primary bill. The machiaVry of the state commltte has been used in spreading broadcast anti-direct nominations literature, but evidently Chairman Woodruff and his advisers have determined that it would be wise not to obtrude their antagonism toward the Governor too prominently on the public. Within the legislature, though, there exists a different situation, and recognized anti-Hughes men. supported and abetted by their political leaders, will wage the fight. It will be a battle all along the line, sparing no measure which under fairly liberal construction could be deemed to bear a Hughes label. The Governor is known to drslre keenly to have the entire scheme of public service legislation adopted this year, as well aa the direct nominations bill, ?nd is believed to deem a new charter for New York City eminently desirable. The Assembly last year, led by the Speaker, in the Rules Committee killed the telephone and telegraph amendments. It is predicted now by anti-Hughes men that these amendments will be killed In the Committee on Electricity, Gas and Water Supply. The other public service amendments were referred to the Judiciary Committee, and probably will be passed. The Independent telephone companies upstnte are said to be violently oppoaed to the commission's taking over control of telephones, and the telegraph companies never have relished the id^a. I As affairs stand now, the anti-Hughes leaders, after Informal polls, figure that they have control of thft Republicans In each house. That would insure caucus action agr.iriFt the direct nominations bill, though splitting the Republican majority wide open. From to-day's developments, that plan 1s under serious consideration. The men who would vote against any Hughes primary reform bill are counting on holding with them the men without prejudice on the subject, hut who dislike some feature or other now embodied in the bill. It is the doubt whether they could hold those men which is making them go slowly and carefully. F»nßt'ir Agnew. for instance, to-day declared t! at tie did not like some of the features of the H;n-man-Green bill. "Biit If it. comes to a proposition either of supporting the Governor or opposing him," paid he. "I ■ ito for this bill no matter what it contains. Hl« adversaries are very foolish in the campaign ire conducting, because they will force many of iui into exactly that poattlon. Many people ar« v.-lth Governor Hughes, and we don't intend to S"e him mocked or ridiculed.*' If finally the anti-Hughes men decide they can try or th« plans with success they will force a comparatively early adjournment. Financial affair* are in such condition that In any case an adjournment hardly could bf. taken before April 15 or aJong toward May 1. The earlier date leaves almost a month for the spreading of the Hughes propaganda, ami the Governor before now ha« accotiipi' d much In a month. There hi little doubt '■xpresse'l here that If the Legislature adjourne-i without passing the direct nominations bill and the telephone and telegraph legislation the Governor would summon an extra cepsinn. at whl^h these subjecrs would b<« presented for consideration anew. Therefore, there is much speculation among the Governor's opponents about when th* Wall Street commission appointed by the Governor last year will make itn report They fear lest that come at a time and with such material ns to make It worth an extra cession for Its consideration. Also, they know that, much as a legislator dislikes an extra session, for which be receives no additional pay, the Governor has not the slightest prejudice against them, and they frar that the average citizen has a notion th» legislators should complete their work each year as It comet along.
