By Leased Wire to Thc Tribune.
NEW YORK, May 7. King Ed
ward s pacifying influence in European
international politics makes his death
a source of deop regret to advocates
of universal poaco. This appears in a
statement givon to a Tribune- represen
tative by Andrew B. Humphrey, gen
eral secretary of thc American I5eacc
and Arbitration league, of which for
mer Senator James B. McCreary is
president, former President .Roosevelt
honorary president, and which numbors
among its members Admiral Dewey and
many of the best known men in the
country. Mr. Humphrey said:
! "That the death, o'f King Edward
should cause thc worldwide sorrow that
;b apparent cannot be surprising when
it is remembered how well hy earned
the title of Edward thc Peacemaker,
which has been conferred upon him bv
universal sentiment. Thc event may be
regarded as a great loss to the move
ment for universal peace.
Knew Need of Peace.
io other rulor in Europe under
stood it better or believed in it moro
sincerely. His lifclontr training under!
England's great Queen Victoria, espe
cially fitted him to be a peacemaker.
His interost in the movement has been
so manifest and his success in in
fluencing the amicnble settlement of
international incidents of a threatening
nature will cause him to bo missod in
the pcuce counsels of the near future.
"King Edward's death, coming at
this particular time, iB. in a senBe a set
back for the programme of the Ameri
can Penco and Arbitration league That
is to say, it is a disappointment that
the peace-lovinc monarch hns passed
.away on the eve of an expected meet
ing with America's great peacemaker,
former President Boosevelt, during
which, in all probability, this great
topic would have been ono of the most
interesting discussed. Mr. Koosvclt,
who is ono of tho honorary presidents
of this len-ue, might have been ex
pected to invite some exchango of views
relating to the proposition to invest, the
president of the court at Tho Hamic
with the powers to be vested in thc
international court of arbitration and
.lustice. which it is expected will be
created at the third ponce conference
in 19 M.
"Of course, it is impossible to say
just how far a -man in thc king's posi
tion could or would commit himself on
any such question as this, but I think
it is tolerably well known .that it is
one of thc propositions in the direc
tion of international ponce that inter
CHtcd King Edward deeply.

LONDON, May 7. Without any dis

oeoplo do not like his name. George

Not one of the four Georges who

the new king brought any lustor to
the English crown. Tho first George
was an imported prince, who had mado
a record as a brave officer in the
Hanoverian army, and an indiscrimin

the latter respect was fully maintained
during his reign over a country whose
language ho could not speak.

Three Striking Instances -of

BY MABG-AKET WATTS
By Leased Wire to" The Tribune.
NEW YORK, May 7. Prince Fran
cisco del Drago, son of Queen Maria
Christina of Spain, self-confessed fortune-hunter,
who has come to America
in senrch of a rich wife, will be met
with a frosty recoption as has been
mado evident by tho action of three of
America's richest heiresses in choosing
husbands on this side of the water.
And that is not all. The inothors of
a number of well-known American
heiresses and some of the heiresses
themselves have formed a compact,' the
object of which is to give the cold
shoulder to penniless foreign noble
men. The Colonial club, the most exclu
sive women's club in America, has been
the seat of much gossip in the past
few daj's over the understanding
reached, by which American girls will
be persuaded to take. American hus-
Dancis instead of titles.
The marriage of Miss Marjorie Gould
to Anthony J. Drexel, Jr., caused u
lifting of aristocratic eyebrows, but at
that time the "Club for the Advance
ment of American Husbands" had not
been perfected. Thc Gould-Drcxel mar
riage was roally responsible for it.
Next came tho announcement of tho
engagement of Miss Mabel Townsend
to Peter Gerry, aud in view of the
fact thnt Miss Townsend had been
courted by a score of titled foreigners,
it began to believe that titles were
below par. It came as the first step
in thc formation of this society, and
now comes thc engagement o Miss
Mary llarriinan to C. C. Itamsoy of
Woary of Titles,
Miss Hurriman, Miss Townsend and
Miss Gould constituted a trio of the
richest and most beautiful girls in
Such women ns Mrs. E. H. llarri
inan. Miss Helen Gould and Miss Anno
Morgan are tho prime movers in the
Colonial club organization, which has
for its primal object the marrying of
American men to American girls.
Of course, this club of which I speak
is not an organization drawn up with
a charter and by laws and officers and
all that sort of thing. It is a mutual
understanding and 83Tinpathetic bond, by
which girls will be advised, that is.
rich girls, to accept thc hands and
fortunes of American men.
If these altruistic women should have
their way the time would soon bo here
when young American millionaires
would quit, marrying 'qhorus girls after
wino suppers, and young American heir
esses would cease marrying foreign
titles for a sum sufficient to paj thc
noblcmnn's obligations. Among the
.women said to be interested not one
can bo found who will admit that the
organization is a fact, but it is rumored
other engagements will bo announced
by two more heiresses. At tho Colo
nial club thcro is much whispering
and many knowing gestures. In tho
tea-room it is a matter of common gos
sip that tho number of international
alliances will gruduallv become fewer
if the patriotic women hold their sway.
Princo del Drago is a friend of Prince ;
Mimiel of Braganza, who married Miss
Anita Stewart, and is apparently fired
by thc success of his royal friend. 1

Deed Recorded Past Week May II
Tell Story of Murder I
Will Out. I
PATRIARCH MAY RAVE '
TO EXPLAIN TO ELDERS j
Temple Worker Dies and Trans
fer of Property Occurs Short
ly Before Death.
The old maxim that murder will oat,
that death oft reveals secrets that can
never be learned during life, is proved
more often in Utah than anywhere else
in the world. This, of course, is due
to iihe fnct that there are more skele
tons in homes in Utah than anywhere;
moro heartbroken women than any
where else, when population is taken
into consideration. This is traeeable
to tho fact that an anti-polygamy man
ifesto was issued by the churcn Sep
tember 24, 181)0. Since then it is al
leged that polygamous marriagea havo
not been countenanced -by the church,
as it has also been alleged that no po
lygamous marriages havo occurred.
Yet The Tribune, in its issue of April j
25, printed a list of ninety-sfx polyga-mist-8
who had taken "wives since the
Sunday, Mny 1, Tho Tribune printed
a, special telegram from Manti, which
Bkowed conclusively, because it was ad
mitted "hv thf rtliiinli fliaf Prnc,'ri4- i
Anderson of tho Manti temple had per
formed a polygamous marriage in the
Mnnti temple November 9, 1909; that I
he did tins after ho had been warned
that the marriage which ho afterwards I
performed was illegal. Miles A- Rom
ncy was the polygamist whom Pres
ident Anderson married to a plural
wife. Exposures by Tho Tribune forced I
tho church to excommunicate Romney,
an nbsoluto admission thai the
charges mado by The Tribuno were
Taylor Pleaded Guilty.
It will bo remembered that one .To- ?
scph E. Taylor, a five or aix-ply po-
lygamist, had been tried and pleaded 6
guilty to a charge of unlawful co- ff
habitation on November 13, 1899, in I
the third district court, and was sen-
tenced on November 22 of the same
year to pay a fine of $150 or iinpris-
onment for 150 day3. He paid tho i
fine. This was moro than nine veara
after the manifesto had been issued.
. On July 30, 1909, this same five or j
six-ply polygamist, Joseph E. Taylor, I
sent a communication to Thc Tribune. 1
wherein ho offered to pay $1000 if The S
Tribune would cite a caso of plural 9
marriage, sinco tho manifesto of 1890..
that had tho sanction of tho president i
of the Mormon church. He worded his
letter, or rather the high ccclesiast who
wroto it for him, very adroitl-, so as to H
bo ablo to always sneak out when H
proof of polj'gatnous mnrriages wero H
i produced because ho knew it would bo H
; impossible, owing to tho fact that the H
1 contracting pnrties would porjnro thorn-
' selves rather than show that they had
tho sanction of tho church. H
Of course, Joseph E. Tavlor would H
not dare openly to take a plural wife. B
The law is against it. And this leads
to a story. 1
Here Is the Story. H
- On May 2, 1910. thcro died in the H
L. D. S. hospital Rachel Susan Davis. (
Her residence, according to tho death H
certificate on file in the office of tho H
board of health of Salt Lake City, was
given as 814 East First .avenue, Thn H
information of her death was givtm by H
J. E. Taylor, whoso residence is given

bo said to be his official residence. H

tho Temple. Her father was Mosei
Davis. Ho died Mnrch 15. 1909. He H
