Lola the Second.
77ie Young King of Bavaria Otplund
by a Cincinnati Adventures.
From the Cincinnati Times,' June 11.
All Munich is at the present time
full of rumors about a strange love af
fair between the young King of Bava
ria and an American confidence wo
man. Tho following particulars of this
interesting affair, which has caused a
great deal of merriment among the
Bavarian - Democrats, but nas deeply
disgusted the memlers of the royal
family have been ascertained from
.trustworthy sources. In January, 1872,
there arrived at Munich an American
lady of about twenty-eight tr thirty,
of very preposessing appearance, ele
gant manners, and richly dr.-r-.-nl. She
registered her name at the 4 poll i ti
ger Hotel, where she stopped, as Mrs.
Fanny Jordan, from Cincinnati, Ohio;
Mrs. Jordan was accompanied by a
fetnme tie chambrt had ple nty of bag
gage with her, and,io all appearances,
was in easy circumstances. JShe had
letters of introduction to tho Consul of
tho United States, and had little diffi
culty in gaining access to the best cir
cles of society. Even her wish to be
presented at Court was gratified, and
she was introduced to the Queen Dow
ager at a soiree at the palace.
It appears that Mrs. Jordan con
ceived, some time after her presenta
tion at Court, the idea of entrapping
the young King, who rarely appeared
in his capital, but most of the ti mo led
almost the life a hermit at his country
seat of Ilohenschwangau.
Mrs. Jordan resolved to see the King,
and on the 12th of February set out for
the village, of- Bergnnr sear. Uoben
echwangua, and engaged two. rooms at
the Golden Bear Hotel. She was not
longin ascertaining the places where
tho King, who is fond or walking out
alone for hours in the neighborhood,
might be met, -and the first fine day
Mrs. Jordan walked out with hcemme
tie chambre, in order to meet King
Louis, and, if possible, to make his ac
quaintance. About two o'clock in the
afternoon she saw a tall young man
dressed in a suit of- iron-gray, his head
covered with a broad-brimmed, low
crowned hat, and carrying a small
riding-whip in his hand, approaching.
Mrs. Jordan, who recognized the well
known features of the King, at once
hastened to make .preparations for at
tracting his attention. She took from
the hands of her maid a telescope and
a travellers hand-book, and seemed
lost in admiration of the beautiful
L' A few minutes afterward the King
M as close to her. The prenosessing ap
pearance of the American lady, her ev
ident admiration of the landscape, to
which Louis the Second is very proud,
.made at once an impression upon him,
ard he stood still, lifting hi3 hat. Mrs.
Jordan returned his salutation, and,
approaching the King, asked him the
name of a village which was to be seen
In the distance. The King politely
gave the Information, and then entered
into a conversation with, her. They
conversed in French, walking slowly
along the highway toward the village,
and, on separating, Mrs. Jordan, who
expressed a great desire to visit Ilo
henschwangau, was overjoyed to re
ceive from the King, who told her
with unaffected frankness who he was,
an invitation to inspect . his country
scat and delightful gardens, which are
among the finest in Europe.
It may be Imagined that she unprov
ed the opportunity, and on the follow
ing afternoon called on the King. He
escorted her through the palace, showed
.her the picture gallery, the theatre, the
'conservatory, and the fountains in the
gardens. Her well-calculated efforts to
make an impression on him, her skill
as a conversationalist, her lively tem
perament, did not remain without ef
fect upon the King, who is little vers
ed Jn worldly affairs, and by no means
insensible to the blandishments of a
pretty atid accomplished woman.
when Mrs. Jordan finally bade him
adieu he shook her warmly by the
hand, and asked her to visit him again,
and even promised to return her call.
lie was as good as his word, and next
day he paid her a visit at the Golden
Boar. Mrs. Jordan's road to success
was now an easy one. Shc met the
King frequently at Hohenchwagau, or
in the environs. The two made long
excursions on horseback, or walked for
hours In the wooded hills of the neigh
borhood. The siren seemed to exercise
an irresistible charm upon the Prince.
His attendants noticed that he became
thoughtful and melancholy; but,
knowing that remonstrances would be
of no avail, did not interfere with his
intimacy with the American lady.
Mrs. Jordan soon received substan
tial marks of the royal favor. Being a
vcrv erood horsewoman, she was pre
sented with a very fine white mare by
the King. A valuable diamond brace
let, a miniature portrait of the King,
set with emeralds, and other presents
of value, were pressed upon her by her
royal lover. Finally, she managed to
obtain loans of quite large sums of
money from him. Everything went
on swimmingly, and Mrs. Jordan was
In a fair way of becoming to Louis the
Second what Lola Montez had been to
his grandfather, King Louis the First,
when an untoward event put an end to
On application at the office of the
United States Consul, they were shown
the letters of introduction which she
had presented to that functionary, and
which were from reputable people in
Cincinnati and New York. At the
Oberpollinger Hotel, where she had
stopped for nearly a month, nothing
could be said against her. She had
always conducted herself with the
strictest propriety, and had promptly
paid her bills. But she had left three
largo trunks at the hotel, and the de
tectives, with that disregard of personal
rights so peculiar to the police of Ger
many, broke the trunks open. They
found in them numerous letters, which
left no doubt of the real character of
Mrs. Jordan. It appeared from these
letters that she had passed the last
three years in several European capi-:
tals under several aliases. It was true,
that she was from Cincinnati, but her
real name, as appeared from several
letters written to her by her father,
wasChumley. She-had- at least one
hundred letters from lovers. not a few
of "-TfhichT contained valuable inclos
ures. . ' r -
She had last been to Berlin, where
she had had a - liaison with a 1'russian;
colonel, who had committed forgery to'
gratify her incessant demands for i
money,, and who, in consequence had
been cashiered. She herself had escaped
arrest only by precipitate flight from
Berlin. In short, the detective? dis
covered that she was a dangerous con-i
fidence woman of the worst sort, and
they went thercuixjn to the village
where she was stopping, and told her
they would arrest her unless she con
sented to leave Bavaria at once.
The baffled adventuress at first tried
to put on a lold front, and showed a
disposition to bid defiance to the offi
cers ; but when told that her true char
acter was thoroughly known, she
deemed discretion the better part of
valor, and, writing a tearful letter to
the King, set out for Switzerland. It
is believed bhe took in money and val
uables, about 10,000 witii her.

" A New York lady visiting in Providence
the past two weeks was strongly impressed'
that she ought to go home, and made ar
rangements to go last Friday night, but was
(prevailed on to stay over Sunday so as to

morning about 4 o'clock she awoke, and
saw her sister that she had left in New.
York standing in her room, and got up to
meet her when the vision vanished. She
returned to her bed, fell asleep and was

and by noon received word that her sister,
