DESCRIPTION OF KRTJPP'o famous
ESTABLISHMENT AT ESSEN.
Bow a Start Was Made Throa-Quarters
of a Century Ago—A Singlo Work
shop Then—A City of Factories Now
—The Beautiful Krupp Villa—Notea of
Corretpondeuce Washington Evening Star.
Dusseldore, Her., July 22.—The receipt
of a letter from Fred. Krupp, informing mo
that lie had assumed control of the Krupp
works ft Essen and the vast estate of his
father, the late Alfred Krupp, reminds me
of my promise to send the Star n tew lines
in regard to this celebrated establishment
that holds such an impoi taut position in the
business world. It is located at Essen, on
the Ruhr, within the consular district of
liusseldorf. and is not only the largest of its
kind in Germany but is said to be the largest
in the world. Acres of ground are covered
by buildings nnd they are filled with the
most improved machinery and appliances
of every kind for the manufacture of guns,
gun-carriages, machinery and tools. The
contracts of the company extend over the
entire world, with every nation, and tho
number of their employes steadily at work
is now about 20,t>00. Orders are at present
being filled by the works for tho United
[States in connection with the new ships for
the navy, and on private account their ship
ments every week to the ports of America
of steel, iron machinery and tools are enor
THE WORKS AT ESSEN,
some five miles from the Krupp villa, are
encircled by heavy brick walls. Watchmen
are at every gate and officials in uniform are
everywhere. Admission is denied to all ex
cept those on special business, accompanied
by an attendant. The Krupp colony, with
families, aggregates over (>O,O(K. Tho em
ployes are quartered in a city adjoining tho
works, numbering thousands of houses. The
best order prevails and the wants of the
Sle are supplied by bake-houses, stores,
i, slaughter-houses, schools, hospitals,
churches and boarding-houses—in reality an
entire city, belonging'solely to Krupp and
the works. The establishment has an army
of officials, among the number por.sons who
have occupied high positions in the affairs
of state and who came to Krupp, preferring
his service to that of the government. It is
the largest establishment of the kind in the
world owned by a single individual, and the
entire estate is left to one son, Fred. Alfred
The entire business of Krupp has of late
been in tho hands of a chief manager, at a
salary of $15,000 per annum, with a corps
of able assistants at high salaries, and nei
ther the elder nor young Krupp has of late
taken a very active part in the business
THE ELDER KRUI'P
was over 75 years of age at the time of his
death, which occurred July 14. Tho cir
cumstances attending his death are some
what painful. He was estranged from his
wife for some reason unknown to the pub
lic, and his son and only heir, Fred Kruup,
a man about 40 years of age, was with his
wife at Heidelberg sick. The old gentle
man, with his millions, died at his villa
alone, in the solitude of the forest that sur
rounds the place, without relative or friend
near, and attended in his last moments only
by the servants that were usually in the
THE BEAUTIFUL KRUPP VILLA.
He lived and died at his villa, Hugel, on
the Ruhr, a magnificent building of great
dimensions, located upon an eminence, sur
rounded by 800 acres of land, beautifully
laid out in parks, drives, lawns, etc.; the
building commanding an extended view of
the surrounding country, “the valley of the
Ruhr." The interior of the villa is a mar
vel of elegance and taste on a grand scale,
aud few buildings in the empire can be
found that are in such perfect proportion
and that contain so many curiosities anil
works of art. In one of the rooms may be
seen a mirror, in size 7xlo feet, a most per
fect aud beautiful looking glass, which,
upon close inspection, is found to bo made
of polished cast-steel. It is a costly work
and said to be the only one of the kind in
existence. Numbers of other groat ouriosi
ties could bo mentioned, but neither time
Bor space will permit.
Mr. Krupp, even within a few days of his
death, was busy in the laboratory that ad
joins his villa with experiments and the de
velopment of new ideas in connection with
his vast interests. Ho was said to be the
richest man and the largest taxpayer in the
German empire. A title of nobility was
offered by the German government to him,
which he declined. As late as 1N54 his en
tire force (which now numbers 20,000) was
but 540 workmen, and his extensive estab
lishment but a tithe of what it at pi-esentis.
He was undoubtedly one of the most re
markable men of the times. Kings and
princes have shown him great respect, and
nations ixave sought his workshops in times
of peace as wen as war. Upon the an
nouncement of his death messages 0 f con
dolence were sent to the family from the
Emperor, Prince Bismarck, the Crown
Princo of Germany and other high officials,
and a number of dignitaries attended the
funeral, among them tho President of Rhein-
Frussia and other officials of the govern
ment from this and other places. Many
years ago the late Admiral Farragut, while
on foreign sdi-vice, having a grout desire to
see Mr. Krupp and his famous establish
ment, in company with Commodore Har
mony, the present Chief of the Bureau of
Yards and Docks, Navy Department, then
n young officer, came up the valley of the
Rhur to Essen and visited Mr. Krupp. They
were received by him with courtesy and
kindness, and left greatly impressed with
what they had seen, particularly in the line
of ordnance and g unmaking.
THE FOUNDATION OF THE KRUPP WORKS
was a small shop, erected over 70 years ago,
on tho site of the present works at Alten-
Ksseu, run by water power, where for 10
years, from 1810 to 1830 Fred. Krupp, tho
father of the deceased, assisted by but two
workmen, spent his time aud what means
he had in trying to invent n new method for
producing crucible cast-steel. The elder
Krupp died in 1826, Hi* yearn of age, after a
life of hardship, in which he sacrificed
health and fortune with but limited results.
His successor was his eldest son, Alfred
Krupp, who recently died, assisted at first
by a younger brother, who soon left tho
Place for other fields of industry. Alfred
Krupp labored assiduously lip to the year
IMS, surmounting many difficulties, ]>er
formiug day’s work as a laborer, with no
encouragement or means, until finally, by
great perseverance, untiring energy and the
help or a few friends, his business began to
develop und flourish.
hi 1544 lie received a gold Prussian modal
at the Berlin exhibition, and at the Ijondon
exhibition tho “Council medal'' forexliibit
j.nK an ingot of cast steel, weighing nearly
jUMi pounds. After this the I'anieof Krupp
began to extend over the entire world, and
Rom that time the use of cast-steel in Ku
r"pe became better known. Mr. Krupp
wii.- the owner of the greatest number of
patents in the empire, or appliances for
machinery, tools, railroad materials, guns
ftml gun-carriages. Since tho year 1840
Runs have been manufactured at the Krunp
w orks from cast steel. In the year 1847
Krupp sent n cast-steel gun to Berlin, which
"as thoroughly tested and the superiority
of the material and workmanship admitted
by the government. Not only in the inauu
luriuro of steel guns, but in shells and ex
plosives did the Krupp system take the lead

ROB ROY’S COUNTRY.
An Interesting and Graphic Descrip
tion of* a Trip Through a Portion of
Edinburgh, Aug. 16. —Sir Walter Scott
has made historic almost every point in
Scotland. The most prosaic visitor to Ediu
! burgh will find himself touched with the ro
mantic while standing on Colton Hill, be
neath another Parthenon, looking out over
the old town and the new. One wide hori
zon embraces both, and the additions of
I mountains and sea, impart something of
the everlasting freshness of nature to the
new city and the old. Many of those ro
mantic charms have their origin in the ge
nius of Scott, and in those marvelous fasci
nations of fiction with which he has in
vested this part of Scotland. It is true
that there is scarcely a glen or loch, or a
mountain side wliieh has not its
legend, belonging rather to the
domain of romance than to history. Mr.
William Black, the novelist, has sought the
inspiration of Scottish ground, and thereby'
has given anew charm to many of the old
localities in his more recent publications.
Burns, in the lowlands, hus done as much
as Scott in the Highlands to invest the
lands with these marvelous charms. Indeed,
there is no more abiding presence in all
Scotland than Robert Burns, while every
character to which a song of his has given
being, still inhabits the scene in which he
placed it. And among the Scotch people
there is not an incident connected either
w ith himself or the objects of his love or
the creations of his genius, lacks a devoted
and unfading remembrance.
ROB ROY’S COUNTRY.
However, it was with Rob Roy’s country
that I wished to write. I can never forget
the thrill of expectancy' with which I found
myself environed as I begun to realize the
nearness of the actual scenery of Rob
Roy’s exploits. Leaving Edinburgh in the
morning on a summer day, with the pure
highland atmosphere filling the lungs, ami
watching the suusbine and shadow chasing
each other over the mountain tops, and
with a copy of Scott’s matchless story in
hand, the approach to Aberfoyle about
noonday, all the incidents of the
famous McGregor’s life became as
real as the particular spots with which
they were connected. The “Clachan of
Aberfal,” at which Francis Osbaldistone
and Bailie Jarvie sought to spend a night,
has been changed to an elegant brick hotel,
called the “Bailio Jnrvie Nicol Hotel.” At
this point we changed from rail to coach,
and I was favored with a seat next to the
driver, who proved to be exceedingly com
municative after a special donation of a
shilling or two. TTie long whip cracked
harmlessly over the heads of a splendid
team as they dashed at full
speed up the mountain’s side, over
one of tne finest roads that I have ever
traveled over. Our jehu informed us that
from the point of starting until wo reached
the banks of Loch Lomond, the whole land
belonged to his Grace the Duke of Montrose.
In the far distance the most remarkable
mountain in all the range could be seen the
summit of Ben Lomond. As we reached
still higher heights, the rugged sides of Ben
A’anand Ben Venu came m sight. As we
turned the loftiest peak the most enrapturing
scene burst upon our view. The
Kossacks, rising in their loveliness, glitter
ing in their green attire beneath an even
ing’s sun, ana lying calm and fair at their
feet was Loch Katrine—
“ln whose deep heart, where cloud and sky ex
Perpetual joy, perpetual music wakes;
Fairer than all thy sisters in the land,
Thou art thyself the Lady of tho Lakes.”
The descent was rapid and the evening
made joyous by constant exclamations of
wonder and surprise at the ravishing beauty
of the scene. On reaching Lake Katrine
we dismissed the coachman and boarded the
little steamer awaiting our approuch. We
had a charming sail of ten miles. “Ellen’s
Isle” and the “Silver Strand” on the oppo
site shore brought Ellen’s actuality so
forcibly to the mind that no one could
douht of her pathetic story.
* HELEN M’GREGOR’S BIRTH PLACE.
Soon after leaving Loch Katrine we come
to the spot where Helen McGregor, the wife
of Rob Roy, was born. The old stone house,
with its thatched roof, still stands in which
her eyes opened to the light for the first
time. Her history was filled with bitter
ness and disappointment.
The clan McGregor was on account of
the massacre of a body of students whom
curiosity had induced to witness the battle
of Glenfuin in which the McGregors were
the victors, were by law deprived of their
very name and every effort made to annihi
late the whole clan. They were dispersed
and persecuted to the utmost by the act of
Council of the realm June 24, 1613; death
was declared against any persons of the tribe
formerly called MoGregor who should pre
sume to assemble in greater numbers than
ROB ROT, OR RED ROBERT,
became a cattle trader after his marriage,
and his talents boing of no mean order, he
inspired general confidence and done a suc
cessful business. One of bis patrons was the
Duke of Montrose, who advanced him sums
of money at various times to assist him in his
business. But the depression of the cattle
trade brought financial failure to Rob Roy’s
plans, and he was unable to pay. He left
his home at Inversnaid ; on Loch Lomond,
and went into the interior of the Highlands
—not empty-handed, if reports be
true, and changed his commercial
adventures for speculations of a very dif
ferent kind. The Duke of Montrose seized
Rob Roy’s landed property and stock to
make good his indebtedness, and in doing so
raised the ire of Rob's wife, who was said to
lie a woman of imperious and haughty
temper. But she was drivon from her home
and in her extreme anguish at being ex
pelled from the banks of Loch Lomond
gave vent to her feelings in a fine piece of
pipe music still known to amateurs by the
name of “Rob Roy’s Lament”
It is well to remember these facts to ap
preciate Helen McGregor’s eloouent reply
to Capt. Thornton, of the English army,
who was seeking the life of her husband.
As he approached the summit of tho rock
on which she was standing, with unsheathed
Rword, “Stand,” said she, with a command
ing tone, “and tell me what ye seek in
McGregor’s country?” “We seek the out
luw, Rob Roy, and make no war on woman,
therefore assure yourself of no evil treat
“Ay,” retorted Helen McGregor, draw
ing herself up to fullest height;
“I am no stranger to your tender mercies.
Ye have left tne neither name nor fame.
My mother's bones will shrink aside in thoir
grave when mine are laid beside them. Ye
have left me neither house nor hold, blanket
nor bedding, cattle to feed us or flocks to
i-Jot,lie us. Yo have taken from us ull—all!
The very name of our ancestors have ye
taken away, and now ye come for our lives.”
The trip from I/Och Katrine to Inversnaid
was rather tame compared with the other
part of the journey. Our driver was very
mute, ami as nobody showed him a six
pence he left us to our own sightseeing and
reflections. Our party, it Isilng Saturday
evening, concluded to sjiend Sunday in Hob
Roy’s country. We parted with a vrry
pleasant company and rested on the banks
of the most beautiful lakes in Scotland,
Loch I/imond. Hither the celebrated Dr.
Thomas Guthrie, of Edinburgh, used to
come every summer to rest and recuperate.
His letters from this pomt had created a
great desire to see the bosom of
this tranquil lake, and hence we se
lected the Sabbath to enjoy this quietness.
We devoted Saturday evening to visiting
Rob Kov’s cave on the cliff overlooking the
lake. 'This was the freebooter's hiding
place when pursued by his enemies. It is
difficult of approach. We hired an old
Scotchman to pilot us thither. He car
ried us in a boat something
over n mile up the east side of the
lake, and then up an almost perpmidiculur
cliff, where steps iiregularlv made rendered
it only possible. The mouth of the cave is
small, and would scarcely bo noticed by the
casual passer-by. Creeping through this
small entrance, and by a sharp turn, w*

those early days of rapine and plunder as
the hiding place of Rob Roy and his elan.
Wo brought away a few lobbies as trophies

on the British isle this is the most attrac

keeps up its perpetual music just, below our
window, and the great mountains hedge us
in on oil h‘*r side, and the transparent waters
of Loch Lomond spred out ill everlasting
beauty at the foot of tho hill.
Sunday is a peaceful, restful day. We
attended service at the chapel, about a mile
up the mountain side, and enjoyed the sim
ple won,hip of these plain Scotch mountain
eers. In the afternoon we visited on old
Scotch home. We reach it by a serpentine
pathway around the mountain side. Wo

two ancient maiden ladies and

about 60 years old. Here they had lived,

six generations the McFarlane family. How
they lived would be hard to determine,

A Not Very Refined Woman Who
Likes to Have Her Way.
Txmdon Letter to the New York Sun.
A friend who, during a visit to Hom
burg, has met and frequently dined with
Bismarck’s wife kindly sends me an inter
esting description of her. Princess Bis
marck, who alone enjoys tho privilege of
telling the master of Europe that he needs
to change his collar or to be more careful
about his personal appearance in general,
was originally Fraeulein von Puttkamer, a
member of a" noble Pomeranian family, and
she is a most interesting woman, although
probably not one in a thousand readers has
ever heard anything about her. She can
not be called lovely. She is past 00, very
tall, and very gray. Her face is very strong,
with large cheek bones. She is rather what
a character of Dickens describes as a “fine
figure of a woman,” inclined, perhaps, to
be bony. Her acquaintance with the peo
ple at Homhurg and Frankfort dates from
the time long ago when Bismarck, not in the
least a great man then, was simply an
official at Frankfort. She made friends
then to whom she has always remained
true, and to whom she goes every year to
Wherever Mrs. Bismarck is she rules.
When she enters a house every window
must lie closed tight, and no door can re
main needlessly open, as she shares with tho
French their morbid dread of currents of
air. At table she is fond of talking, and
speaks very loud and decidedly. Hho gets
very much excited in discussion, and to con
tradict her is not safe. She is very fond of
music and discusses it learnedly, although
she really knows little about it. This
causes many wordy battles between her and
her old friend, Baroness Willie Rothschild,
one of the friends gained in Bismarck’s lass
important days. The Baroness is old, and,
like most Rothschilds, not remarkable fer
beauty, but she is bright, really
knows something about music, writes
French songs, and composes a great deal.
She plays and sings her own work, and she
and the Princess Bismarck do a great deal
of talking about it.
The Princess shares her husband’s digest
ive trouble, and relies, like him, upon the
advice of the expert Dr. Hchvveininger,
but, like her grand husband and the old
Emperor, she quite refuses to be governed
in her living by medical advice, and my cor
respondent writes me how she drinks
champagne almost frozen, in spit© of the
entreaties of her lady companion, a precise
and amiable old stiftsdame. “The only un
favorable thing about Princess von Bis
marck,” says my correspondent naively, “is
that she neglects to consider how youth
should bo talked to, and even at table,
where young girls may be, does not repress
her tendency to relate tales with a taint of
Princess Bismarck has brought her boys
up in the way they should go, and, although
she lived a long time in a little hotel on
Kiselogstrasse, they came frequently to see
her, Herbert from Kcßiiigstein and William,
who calls himself and likes to be called Bill
Bismarck, from Hainan, not far from
Frankfort, where he is landrath. Neither
of the boys resembles his mother, but they
take after their father, especially William,
who is a wonderfully exact, though men
tally diluted, reproduction.
BUFFALO BILL’S BRIDE.
Fay’s Reminiscence of a Louisville Girl,
Wife and Widow.
A correspondent of the Louisville Courier-
Journal, writing from White Sulphur
Bprings, Va., says: In vain have I looked
through all the accounts published describ
ing the Queen's Jubilee for some mention of
Buffalo Bill. It was expected by his ad
mirers that he would be ut the head of the
Queen’s escort of Princes. Has English
royalty gone back on the illustrious Bill?
Evidently the Queen is not so particular
about divorced men as she is about divorced
women. While the wild Bill of the West
was basking in the smiles aud patronage of
royalty, someone with a too retentive mem
ory recalled a little episode in his life which
links Lzjuisville, as well as Washington,
with tho varied fortunes of this illustrious
gentleman. In the days of George I). Pren
tice and the Louisville Journal there was a
gentleman by the name of Whitely con
nected with that paper. I think he was on©
of the distiiiguislied Kentucky Colonels in
the Mexican war, of which O’Hara, Haw
kins, Pickett and others survived to add ad
ditional honors to their names. Col. White
ly married Miss Georgie Barcktay,a daugh
ter of one of the old merchants of I/juisville.
During the late “war between the Htutes”
Col. Whitely, his wife, children nnd his
mother-in-law, Mrs. Barekluy, lived in
Washington, and he hod charge of tho New
York Herald bureau. He wrote letters
from the “front,” and stood at tho head of
journalists. His wife died of consumption,
and not long afterward Col. Whitely mar
ried n handsome young girl who lived on
Capitol Hill. Then the Colonel paid the
debt of nature, aud that, with other debts,
reduced his family to poverty, and the
young and interesting widow obtained a
clerkship in the Treasury. Next there ap
peared on the scene the rich and fascinating
Col. Cody. Shortly after it was announced
that the fascinating Mrs. Whitely was en
gaged to the Western millionaire. He re
turned to Denver, aud tho lady was to ob
tain a trousseau worthy of such magnificent
prospects, and follow lior lover to his West
ern home It was arranged that the wed
ding hou!d take place inf Oliver. The pro
gramme was carried out with great pomp,
anil the bride was supposed to be an object
of envy, until rumors reached her friend* of
a Milt for divorce, which was obtained, and
no one in Washington who knew Mrs.
Whitely has heird of tier siuc#, and few
identified the Col, Cody .Victoria'* pal, with
Buffalo BUI, the idol ot Kiigikh royalty.
