he wrote to Mayor Caynor, telling how
hla wedding day hsl been "spoiled."
The Mayor to-day seit tho following
answer to the unhappy bridegroom:
I have received your letter of
Nov. IS complaining that an Al
derman on marrying you the day
before at his house, demanded 121
of you as his fee, and that you
paid him for the reason that It
would have mortified you too
much to make a protest tn tha
presence of your bride and other
ladies who were present.
Of course, tho Alderman com
mitted a great outrage, nnd he no
doubt knew that you would pay
him sooner than dispute with him
openly. He hod no right to charge
you anything. I receive many let
ters of a similar kind. My advice
to you all la to go to clergymen
to bo married, and then you will
bo treated properly. 1 do not, by
this, mean to Bay that all of the
Aldermen would treat you as this
Aldermen did, but unfortunately
aome of them would.
You. say It was all the money
you had with u. mid that you
expected to use It for Immediate
expenses with your bride. I cer
tainly sympathize with you. If
some one bad held you up In the
street and taken It away from you
It would not have been worse. You
may sue the Alderman to get your
money back, but If you do he will
no doubt say you made him a
voluntary present of the $20, and,
who knows, the Judge may believe
