Ctiple Kept It Secret on Account of Objec
tion of Uncle ana Aunt.
Bed Bank, X. J., Aug. 24— The formal an
nonncement here to-day of a marriage which
took place on July 11. 1895. was a surprtee. The
conlimrtlns parties were James Brown and Hiss
Elisabeth T. Reed, both of Red Bank. The Rev
J. A- Owen, of Elizabeth, performed the cere^
mony for the couple, it was a secret wedding,
because of the opposition of the uncle and aunt
of the bride, with whom she lived. The couple
never iiv«rj. together, and not even their most
intimate Jnendu had any intimation of the mar
rase, Mire Reed continued to be known by
that name. *
Mr. Brown is past fifty and his wife about
forty-five years old. The opposition of the uncls
and aunt was never withdrawn, and therefore
the matter was always a secret. Recently. It is
said. Brown thought Mrs. Brown was receiving
attentions from another man, ai*J warned him
that she was his wife. The statement was
toughed at, co Brown met about obtaining hia
poofs, and to-day published the notice. Brown

COMMENT OX CHANGE.
Esperanto Society Will Try to Enlist
[By Telegraph to The Tribune. 1
Chicago, Aug. 2L— President Roosevelt's action In
the matter of spelling aroused considerable discus
sion in Chicago to-day.
"I'm against It," said El G. Cooley, superintendent
of schools. "Whenever 1 see one of those con
founded words on a page it haunts me four or five
lines ahead and as many after. Why. the whole
idea reminds me of the old fellow who wanted
Congress to appropriate $50,000 for the Improvement
of the alimentary canal. It will take about as long
to reform spelling as it would to reform the ali
mentary canal. I know that you can prove mathe
matically that by cutting out a few letters you can
save nineteen seconds in every eight lines, but I
guess I'm a little eld fashioned in my views. I'm
"I am glad to hear this and think It Is a fine
thing." said A. W. Smalr. dean of the senior col
lege at the University of Chicago. "Although
there are many objections offered that it will take
up a long time to get used to this new system of
spelling. I Relieve that It will make spelling easier
for those coming after us. I heartily commend It
and am a great believer In It."
"I am not favorably inclined toward the reform
spelling," said Charles Hutchlnson, trustee of the
university. "As yet I have been given no reason
which I thought of sufficient weight to warrant a
change from the customary system. Whether or
not the old way is irrational is a question Involv
ing tha whole history of tho language. So far as
the economy of time under the new method goes,
the time saved is not worthy of consideration."
Alfonse Gibourl, secretary of the Esperanto So
ciety, which was organized in Chicago last June to
teach and spread the new language, said to-day
that the society would at once, endeavor to enlist
the aid of the President in the movement.
"The official action of the 1 resident in recog
nizing spelling reform." said the secretary, "is the
entering wedge for a universal language. We will
communicate with him at once iegardlng the ad
visability of appointing a commission to Investigate
th* new tongue.
'•.Esperanto, we believe, will be the coming lan
frno.iro, and will l»f(me fo common that it will be
heard in every country. Qi course, it will laKe
time. We think it the only solution of the uni
versal language question, and are sure the Presi
dent will give us his support."
LONDON' TRESS KOT SYMPATHETIC.
One Paper Says President Should Have
Shown Mercy in Spelling Befonn,
Ixmdon, Aug. 25.— President Roosevelt's decision
to adopt the reformed spelling In his messages and
In executive correspondence is commented upon by
the newspapers of London this morning in anything
but a sympathetic spirit.
"The Standard"* bluntly declares that the Presi
dent overrates his powers, adding that It declines
to believe that scholarly and cultivated Americans
will sacrifice the history and meaning of the lan
guage by adopting the "Carnegie Jargon."
Other newspapers deal with the matter In a
numerous vein. "The Dally News" points out that
If American publishers wlah to Invade the British
market they should be conservative hi their or
"The Chronicle," which has more sympathy with
some of the changes, says:
Whether we like the new spelling or not, it prob
ably will be forced upon us, because the United
States is coming more and more Into control of
the printing presses of the English speaking world.
If once President Roosevelt can establish uni
formity In America on the lines he prescribes, the
new spelling will be likely before long to become
dominant in Great Britain also; but. as he is
strong, he might have been merciful and sum
moned an Anglo-American congress to endeavor to
arrlvo at an agreement on a common mode of
fuelling, so that the President's English and the
King's English should be the same.

tral Station and perched themselves on a Beat. They
■were quickly followed by others, comics: in groups
of Irom. thrc9 to forty, until i.56 had been assembled.
At Just 8:« the cry. "All aboard!" earns, and
through the gate they M each one being- anxious
to be the first aboard th<» train.
"Don't crowd so. go plow," ehout«d a cateman.
"But, suppose the train should go and leave us.
what would we do then?" came the Quick reply from
a boy. "I ain't goln' to take no chances, but get
aboard Just as quick as I can."
After a few minutes all were safely seated on the
train. Flfty-flve of them were on a Harlem Di
vision train, which was going to Richmond Fur
nace. Prom Richmond Furnace the party had a
long ride over the hills to St. Helen's Home, at In
terlaken, Mass., where they complete a company
of a hundred, part of which went up" Thursday.
One. hundred more of the company were aboard of
a New Haven train, which stopped at Bantam.
Conn. From Bantam this party also had a four
mile drive to the Sh«ppard lCnapp Home, near Mil
The next party to leave had a long sail from
New York to the Atlantic Highlands before they
climbed into th© wagons which took them to Eunice
Home, at Chanel Hill. N. J. There were eighty
two altogether in the party, sixty boys and twenty
two girls. The proppect of a ride on the boat, even
though it was raining, delighted them greatly
while they were waiting on the pier.
"Is this an ocean ■ liner?" one boy wanted to
know, as the Atlantic Highlands boat drew up to
the pier. "She looks big enough to be. I wouldn't
bo afraid to cross the ocean In her."
There were only twenty In the nest party to
leave. They were bound for Falrneld, Conn., where
they are to be entertained at Elm Cottage. To re
place the twenty who returned from Mechanics
town yesterday, twenty more convalescent children
went out to partake of the bounty of the people
of Middletown and Goshcn. The returning chil
dren had many tales to tell of the pleasures of
their visit. The stream near their Mechanicstown
home, in which they were permitted to wade, had
delighted them particularly. Happy Land, at Ten
ant, N. J.. received another instalment of fifty
girls yesterday to replace* those who came back
from that place on Wednesday.
The last and big-gest party of the day numbered

its duty to remind readers that the Tribune Fresh

whloh absolutely every dollar contributed by the
public goes directly to the work of sending a poor
child to the country, keeping It there for two weeks
and bringing It back again. No collectors are ever
employed, and all collections made for the fund are
purely voluntary. All expenses for the organisa
tion, agents and general machinery of the charity
are privately defrayed by The Tribune itself and bjf
the trustees of the fund. There are no percentages
to collectors to come out of the contributions of
the public, and no payments to agents, managers,

MAT TRY TURBINES FOR NEXT BATTX.E
BHIP.—The Bureau of Steam Engineering Is pre
paring to make further inquiry Into the turbine as
a possible substitute for the reciprocating engine on
naval ships. There Is the remotest chance of the
adoption of the turbine on the next battleship to be
designed, but at present the experts see no good
reason for departing from the true and tried
mechanism for naval propulsion. There have been
several Inspections of the transatlantic liners which
are equipped with turbines, but the Information ob
tained has not bean entirely satisfactory: In fact,
there Is great difficulty In obtaining desired facts
concerning the expenditure oi coal. This and other
features are kept under cover, and It has come to
be appreciated that there may be good reasons for
considering the turbine more expensive in opera
tion—at least as to coal consumption— than the re
ciprocating engine. At the same time the bureau
desires to obtain all possible information on the
subject, and to this end will pursue the inquiry, the
ne^tt step being the detail of L'eutenant Commander
H. F. Norton, now on duty in the Bureau of Steam
engineering, for an observation trip on the steamer
Carmania, upon which in .nstalled the Parsons tur
bine. Commander Norton will be accompanied by
a bureau draftsman and will eeek to add to the de
partment fund of information in regard to turbine
operation with, if possible, tome record of the ex
penditure of fuel. It is hoped to make comparisons
with another steamer of identical dimensions, the
Caronla, which is equipped with reciprocating en
COAST DEFENCES IN "WTNTER.-OB* of the
most vexatious questions confronting the coast
artillerists is that of preserving the expensive
armament at Northern posts against the damaging
effect of snow and Ice during the winter. Experi
ments were made at some of the New England
posts, with a view to finding out Just what would
be necessary to preserve the guns, and at the same
time interfere as little as possible with the practice
of the gunners and others who must be required,
regardless of season, to keep up to the standard of
efficiency In the operation of the coast defences.
It is also necessary to have some system which
will not prevent guns being placed in action within
the shortest possible time to meet any emergency
which might come up In winter, and which would
be. If this were not anticipated, an occasion for an
enemy to take advantage of the known fact that
at that season the defences of the Northern coast
were out of commission. Several methods of cover-
Ing the guns with a temporary shelter have been
tested, and the artillery authorities will shortly
determine which of these systems Is the most
AUTHORITY OF GENTJRAL&— A technicality
which has come up In the War Department applies
to the departmental commanders who are on duty
In command of army camps of Instruction. Ordi
narily these officers are permitted to issue what is
known as travel orders; that is. orders to officers
and men involving travel, and carrying with it a
legal allowance. The commanding officers are away
from their headquarters and some of them are even
outside of their departments. It was questioned
whether they still had the right to issue the orders;
If they did not have such right, it would presently
appear, by virtue of decisions of the Controller,
that certain army officers and soldiers were deprived
of their mileage and other allowance?. It has been
decided that the officers may issue orders in Indi
vidual cases where it is absolutely nec*?sary to take
such action. In the case of militia offlcers.ar.il men
the transportation comes out of the allotment for
militia purposes, and the orders in such cases are
issued by division commanders, and no complication
can arise by the absence of department commanders
from their respective headquarters.

( UITIC OF ARMY SYSTEM.
General Greely Says Division Meth- \
od Is Not Most Efficient.
Washington, Aug. 24.— Major General A. W.
Greely, commanding the Pacific division, calls at
tention in his annual report to the present system,
which, he says, "is believed to be an erroneous
military principle to have the same territory cov
ered by two commanders." He refers to the con
dition that exists all over the United States, where
a division Is commanded by a major general and
departments in the division commanded by either j
a major general or a brigadier general. General :
Greely speaks of the earthquake and fire In San
Francisco and the extraordinary duties performed
by the army on that occasion, and says the ex
perience "developed large numbers of instances to
show that such a dual command is not the most
efficient." He recommends the restoration of a sys
tem of departments, the abolition of division and
establishment of brigade posts.
The report has caused considerable discussion In
the War Department. It is said that it emphasises
the point several times made that with six major
generals of the line and fifteen brigadier generals
of the line great difficulty Is found hi .-tailing
places for them commensurate with their rank.
One reason for creating four divisions was to give
places for major generals, the departments be
ing commanded by brigadiers. General Greely
makes It appear that there Is no necessity fur
such dual commands, as the departments now
report direct to the War Department and tha
division commanders do not know what has been
done. It is said also that extra staff officers are
required, which might well be dispensed with should
the old department method be resumed. Under
present conditions there are two major generals
stationed at Governor's Island. There are a ma' >r
central and a brigadier general at San Fran
cisco. Naturally. it seems that the duties are not
■uch as to require two general offljers at one
place, with a full set of officers, such as are at
tached to every division and every department.
