PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS ME5EUS5IE LIKELI ID GO 'fflJEIF Small Personal Treasure Of Ill-Fated King Appears Exhausted BY MILTON HKONNKH XEA Seivife SlnfT Corrpspoiidenl LONDON, Nov. 11,—Hailc So- Jii.ssli- tlif Fim. King of Kings of Elliiopin. Conquering Lion of Jiiclali—a frail liule shadow king. thin and dark—has permitted his fiir-uds in England to reveal that lit; supposed treasure box, transported from Ethiopia, is empty. He stands out as the most notable victim of Ulc League of Na- tlcns ond llu> hig powers which control and sway it. Encouraged by Uic League to ir-sist (lie war of uggrc-sKlait waged upon liis country ty Italy, he has lost everything , favc honor. All his once-proud titles today sound derisively: "King ol Kings of Ethiopia"— v.ilh himself in exile an-J nil the Et'Jophm chlrftnlns. wlio acknowledged Ills rule, cither killed by tlie Italians or forced by them Into submission! "Conquering Lion of Judali"— with his armies wiped nut, his capital and country in T~.e hands of Ihe enemy! , Today he lives far from his un- live land, in Die old watering lilace of Bath, simply, modestly us befits one bereft of fortune. At the time he left hit country, much was mode In Ihe report.? concerning Uic vast treasure he was supposed to have carried off ivith him. What It really amounted lo was a few boxes of silver coins and a box or two of silver plate—his own possessions. They have long ngo Been spent to maintain his family, to send his representatives to Geneva to the League of Nations Assembly, and in fees for lawyers looking after his Interests. * Financial Frustration •Sin the desperate attempt to help Himself, the iioor little Emperor lins been blocked at, every turn. He sat down to write his memoirs. There was n London publisher willing to issue the book. There was in England a'nd elsewhere a sympathetic audience ready to buy it. But when he had completed it, he was doomed to disappointment. The manuscript was sent buck to him. Inexperienced In (he art of book-making. Haile Selassie had spent too.much time narrating fr>r distant,, events and had given all loo little space to tlie tragic wnr with Italy—the inside story, as only lie could reveal it. Then he turned lo the French courts lo establish his rights to big blocks of slock In the Fiench- controllcd Addis Abnlia-Djiboutl railway, the only line leading from the Red Sei>{ to the capital Ethiopia. In the same courts .sought to establish his rights lo stock in the Franco-AbyJisininn Salt Co. Had he lieeti successful, he could have soltf these shares and gotten much-needed financial relief. The Flench courts arc still pondering. SSO.OPO Tied tip in Court Next In- turned lo the English courts and filed suit against the Cable and Wireless Co. for $50.0<M he claimed was due him under nn agreement regarding wireless service between Addis AVmbti nnil England.' Tile company did noi deny thai the money was due to somebody, but questioned whether )-eile Selassie was that somebody. This was especially so because Italy claimed the money. The little king's attorney made great play of the fact that he was still recognized as Emperor of Ethiopia by the British government. The wireless people sntd Ihe trouble was that as the King of Jt,ily now claimed to bo the Einperor of Ethiopia, he might sue the company for Ihe money, claiming Haile Selassie hsd no light to it. The English court is .'lumbering over Hie point. So straitened have the circumstances of Haile Selassie now become. Hint, as soon as they think .Uic moment propitious, the Abyssinia Association of Great Britain is going to issue an appeal for n relief fund for him.
