BBUSSEI.S, Jan. 22.—Prince Baudouin nephew of King- Leopold, and heir to the throne of .Belgium, is dead. He died in this city at 3 o'clock a. in. The cause of his death is alleged to have been an attack of bronchitis. The death of the Prince'lias caused a tremendous sensation- and creates consternation in all classes in Brussels. There are all sorts of rumors circulating* as the public was entirely unaware that the Prince was ill. Intense excitement prevails in Brussels and throughout the provinces. Crowds of people are parading 1 the streets or gathering in knots at street corners eagerly discussing the situation. ' On all sides the warmest expressions of sympathy with the royal family in" this " their fresh trouble are heard. Prince Bau- dourrrs popularity and brilliant talents and the bright hopes centered by the Belgians on his future career, make them feel the Prince's loss in the keenest manner possible. The news of the Prince's death was withheld from- his sister, the Princess Henriette, a beautiful girl about 20 years of age, who is dangerously sick from inflammation of the lungs. The palace''* of the Count of Flanders, where the Princess resides, is surrounded by a strong force of police, who are doing their utmost to prevent the unusual noise in the streets from arousing the suspicions of the suffering Princess. The sudden death of the Prince Baudouin has caused the. most alarming rumors to be circulated on all sides, and these rumors grew in importance as the day progressed. It was openly asserted that the death of the popular Belgian Prince was a repetition of the sad circumstances surrounding the death of the Archduke Eudolph, the heir to the Austrian throne, who met his death in such a mysterious manner on January SO, 1SS9. It was added that' a beautiful German governess, who had been recently ba,nished from the Belgium court by order of King Leopold, had been in some way connected with the death of Prince Baudouin. Rumor also had it that there had been an intrigue, lasting a long time, "between the governess and the Prince, and the result of their liason is said to have been the birth of a child. In any case the death of Prince Baudouin is surrounded with mystery and speculation. The court physicians, in the death certificate, announce that Prince Baudouin's death was caused by hemorrhages, following a severe attack of bronchitis. The physicians also assert that the Prince caught a chill while watching at the bedside of his sister, the Princess Henriette, who has been ill for some time past. But these statements are far from convincing the people that the real cause of the death of Prince Baudouin has been given to the public, and the startling rumors already referred to are popularly believed to be founded on a solid basis of fact of some description. Teleirrams and messages of condolence with the royal family of Belgium in. this their great sorrow are already reaching Brussels 'from all parts of Europe, among-the dispatches received being words of sympathy from. Queen Victoria and the Prince and Princess of Wales. Prince- Baudouin. Leopold Philippe Marie- Charles Antoine Joseph Louis was the son of the Count of Flanders,' brother of King Leopold. Prince Baudouin was born in this city on June ; 3, 1869. He was a captain of Belgian 1 carbiners and a captain of Prussian, cavalry, being attached to the Second Regiment of Hanoverian Dragoons. The brother of Prtice Baudouin, Prince Albert Leopold Clement Marie Meinrad, who was born April 8, 1875, is now heir to the throne of Belgium. Prince Albert is now studying under, the direction of a, number of tutors in preparation for passing his examination previous to . entering upon a military cafeer.
