New-York; Nov. 0. The much talked of
wedding ot Hits Consuclo Vanderbilt and
the Duke of Marlborough took place to-day
in St. Thomas' Church'.
The hour Bet for the lieginnlng of the
ceremony was 12 o'clock. At that hour
the. church was thronged with the repre-
eentatlvui of New York' smartest society
' gathered to witness the ceremony .,
The church was gorgeously decorated for
the occasion, the floral display being with
out doubt the moil lavish that New York
has ever known.
The precautions Jo keep out of the church
all unlntlled guests and to hold back the
cro ivds which it was expected would gather
in the btreets were amply Justified.
As early as 9 o'clock a number of men
and women began to collect about the
oelg hborbood ot the church and to eye curi
ously the fccc-ne of the approaching nup
tials. A squad of fifty policemen were on
hand to keep the entrances to the church
lly 10 o'clock they had their hands full
to keep the fast increasing crowd moving.
At thai hour the church doors were tlirowu
open and liftecn minutes later the first cf
the guests, intent on f-ecuriiig good places
from which to wltners the bridal proces
sion nud the ceremony, began to arrive.
Entrance to theUiurca was gained by the
main doors on Tilth avenue. .From 10:10
o'clock carnage arter carruge rolled up,
their occupants quickly passing into the
church. As the hour for the ceremony
drew nearer the crowd became larger and
The steps of houses and the sidewalks up
and down the avenue were jammed until
It was almost impossible for the pedestrian
to obtain a passage through the crowd.
Traffic on Fifth avenue was practically
aia standstill by uooa owing to-the crowds
which tilled tbestrcet. The police succeeded
by hard work In keeping clear a passage
The church within was decorated to the
perfection of the florist's art. No expense
was 'spared to make the interior of the
edifice as beautiful as possible.
The estlbule was com cried into a boyver
of tropical vines and foliage. The nav
were liutd with the rarist palms and the
ceilings hung with vines.
Trom the dome of the church massive
strands of foliage and flowers, lilies, roses
and chrysanthemums were huug. Around
the six columns supporting thcdt,:iic broad
sashes of pink and white chrysanthemums
and lerns were wouud from base to capltol.
Jledalllous of maple foliage were fas
tened to the front of the galleries, while
garlauds of white and piuk cosmos were
so thickly festooned along the gallery rail
ss almost completely to hide the wood
work. Pendant, from the gallery rjil
about the entire church were orchids, piuk,
green and mauve, with dark green foliage.
Across the chancel stood three high eoth
lc arches of bride roses and lilies with a
background of asparagus ferns. The chan
cel rail was concealed by lilies of the
valley, while the gates were hidden under
Turlejelnes ferns and white catalyeas,
palniK, and trailing vines were plated on
the back of the chancel. In the rear of
the chancel was a masof palms and while
and pink flowers, suJi as rocs, azaleas
Mies and clirjsanthcmums.
OCEANS OF FLOWERS.
On the altar were four tall vases filled
with various kinds of lilies. On cither side
cf the chancel rail were banks of fern
with growing bushes of bridesmaid roses
The choir and organ stalls were almost
hidden by banks of roses and lilies fringed
at the bottom with pink and white .Mpinc
violets, taking the place of choir curtains
with arches of pink and white tees.
Vines were twined about the columns
flanking the organ, f-pringmg from bushes
of roses growing at their base. In the pul
pit was a century old palm und around its
sides were garlands of orchids and a
drapery of ferns.
At the entrance to the center and side
aisles gates of lilies and roses were placed.
The ushers were at their jiosts the mo
ment the doors opened. 1 he were Messrs
T. BrocLholvt Cutting, Rlihard T. 'Wilson,
Jr., Reginald Ronalds, Herbert D. Bobbins,
and Hamilton Wilkes Cary.
The full iholr of the church was In the

harpist, had charge of the music.

Although the report of the commission

sources that this con mansion rinds that- the

necessary. The route selected Is found
to be the best adapted to the purposes fit
the canal and the whole scheme or Von'
struction is commended.
What will be done by the next Congress
is still an undetermined uuantlty. hen
ator Morgan believes that if the canal bill
is re-introduced and urged It will pass
both houses. It certainly has a very re-siiectnhlc-
maloritv in the Senate, but Its
'success. In the l!ouc depend upon several
contingencies. That mere is an actual
majority In Its favor is not doubled, but
the expenditure of such a large sum of
money Immediately In the face of an ap
proaching Presidential election may cause
the in. liter to bo dclaved by thoe In
charge of the party management in the
iiousc. mis. at least, is me view oi
some who liave considered the question.
Senator Morgan Is prepared to follow tn
the lead of anyone w holnterests himself In
this matter, anil lie believes that Congress
will eventually cue its supportjo the con
struction -of tills canal.
"The next Congcss will he a very busy
one," said Mr. Morgan,, "for our foreign
relations appear to be occupying much of
the attention of the- State Department.
Many Interesting questions arc before the
country Ilawnlt, Cuba, Alaska, Venez
uela, and the Bering Sea claims, and Con
cress -will doublle have much to say
upon these matters. If tho Venezuelan
corresiondence has reached n finished
state, I have no doubt that the. Stale De
partment will transmit It to Congress.
The Alabkan boundary question Is In a
great measure closely allied to that pend

conclusion to that dispute. This Govern

the matter will be delayed so long that the

ANTE-MO I1TEM STATEMENTS.
What New York Papers Think "The
Lundxllde Still Sliding."
New York, Nov. 6. The morning papers
comment editorially upon the result of yes
terday's clcctlou as follows:
TheSun (Tammany Democrut)sa)s: Tho
election reveals the Republican strength
In the nation, compared with the Demo
cratic strength, as abnormally great. The
landslide of 1894 Is still sliding. New
York has beenbeld Republican by a majority
that must be classed with tho extraordinary
majority of 1894. Tammany has made
New rork city appear Democratic again.
The Times (Democrat) says: It would
be foolish to base on these elections any
definite predictions as to the- direction or
force of the current of popular sentiment
next year. -But it is plain that there Is no
evidence of that recovery from the "tidal
wave" of 1891for which the more sanguine
Democrats bad hoped. More powerful, so
far as national Interests were considered,
than all other Influences was tho melan
choly and disgraceful breakdown of the
party in the United States Senate through
cue treason oi uorman ana cince ana ineir
immediate followers. Notwithstanding this
misiortune, the principles or the the party
The Tribune (Republican) says: It is a
great victory, although another like that
of 1894 was not to be expected. The Re
publicans hold the battle-field, and If
pushed from some points have gained
others of larger Importance. The general
results or ttic elections are so strongly
favorable that the Republicans have reason
to look forward with the utmost hope.
The Recorder (Rep.) sajs: The grand
old party was never closer to the hearts of
the people than 'it Is at the present hoar.
In Its success lie all the hopes of Americans
for a policy that will make us respected
abroad and prosperous at home. That Is
enough to explain any tidal wave.
The Press, Hep., says: This Is a re--publican
United States. This is the most
Important fact which yesterday's voting
-established. The battle was i. test of
Jiarty strength, and its result possesses no
other significance than that of "a victory

The political landslide- struck the old
State of Kentucky yesterday with suf
ficient force to reduce the normal Demo
cratic majority almost to the vanishing
point. If It Las not disappeared.
The secret blanket ballot made the re
turns provoklngly slow, while several coun
ties, could not be reached by telegraph,
but enough were received to Indicate that
the vote for governor will be close be
tween P. W. Hardin, Democrat, and W.O.
The vote was light throughout the State
and 6hows a general Democratic loss, not
only for Hardin, but for the whole Dem
ocratic ticket. Hardin was scratched con
siderably in some counties, but In a Tevr
he ran ahead of his ticket. Returns rroni

Scattering returns from about half of
these counties show Democratic losses, and
It is considered doubtful whether Hardin
can come to Jeflerson County with a vote
sufficient to overcome the Republican plu
rality ot 5,597 here.
The greatest surprise of the election Is
ln"the probable control of the lower house
ot the leglslature.by the Republicans. The
returns indicate theelection of fifty Republi
can representatives, forty-one Democrats
and nine doubtful.
Democrats elect nine and Republicans nine
senators, but the hold-over senators will
give the Democrats a majority In the
Benate, and probably on joint ballot. The
closeness of the legislature will make Sena
tor Blackburn's re-election doubtful.
In Louisville the Republicans made almost
