to the Thlny-slxth Congress, and with the
exception of the Thirty-ninth, Forty-rifth
and Furty'-slxlh Co tigresses, he has served as

ROBE HIS HOUBx".
Richard Parks illaud, who has repre
sented the Eighth Missouri district in Con
gress for the last twent-lvn jears, is an
other old and tamiliar race that will be
found missing in the next House. He is the
lather or the "Bland Sliver Dollar," and
has been the leader or the sliver rorces In
the House ever since the tt bile metal be
came an issue.
The trouble with Bland was that he
rode his hubby to death. Even his constitu
ents grew weary, or his silver tones, aud
last No ember declined to return hint to
Congress. Judge James E.Cnbb, or Georgia,
who became umous ror his "where am I

was also lost In the shuffle last fall. He

Col. William C. P. Breckinridge, ot Ken
tucky, who represented the Seventh dis
trict or that State ror ten years, was de
feated ror rcuumlnatlon by a disgusted
constituency a jear ago. It was after his
famous trial Tor breach of promise, in which
Madeline Follard figured as prosecutrix.
It wa3 a desperate fight, and one that will
alwajs be remembered In Kentucky.
Col. Breckinridge was known as the "silver-tongued
orator." He is one of the
finest and most entertaining talkers who
have occupied n seat In the lower house
of Congress for jears. He was a nuniit
considerable Influence among his rellow
members until the scandal with Miss Pol
lard. Even then he retained quite a num
ber of his old friends, and had he been
re-elected to Congress he would to-uay
occupy a prominent position among tne
great statesmen of the countrj-. His po
litical race is run, however, and he may
never be heard of again In that world.
Timothv J. Campbell, or the Ninth New
York district, is a character who will not
be seen in the next House. Tim was rirst
elected to the Torty-nintli Congress to fill
the seat or Samuel S.Cox. who resigned
to accept the mission to Turkey during
President Cleveland's rirst term. He was
re-elected to the I'lrtleth, Fifty-first, Firty
second and Fifty-third Congresses, tint was
t urped down by Tammany Hall for Harry C.
Miner, the will-known actor and theatrical
manager of Gotham.
WILSON AND BIIVAN.
Pror. William L. Wilson, or West Vir
ginia, the author or the present tariff bill,
who has represented the Second district
or that State in the House ror the last
dozen years, is another who was caught
out In the wet last November. He is still
in publicise through the kindness of G rover
Cleveland. He is a member of the Pres
ident's orridal family, being the chief dis
penser of patronage at the post-office pie
non. William Jennings Bryan, of Lin
coln, Neb., is another statesman, who,
while only in Congress two terms, became
rather famous. Although now only 35
years of age he was one of thef inest orators
in the House.
Speaker Crisp took such a liking to the
youngster that he made him a member
or the Ways and Means Committee, and
he proved himseira very valuable assistant
to Chairman Wilson. Bryan is k rabid
rree trader, and tlie Wilson bill, as it
passed the House, did not suit him. If
lie had had his way he would have free
listed nearly everything. While a Demo
crat, he differed with the Cleveland Admin
istration in many things, and that prob
ably accounts for his not being In the next
House. He became involved in a fight for
State supremacy with Secretary of Agri
culture Morton and got the worst of the
HE WAS jV CUCKOO.
William M. Springer, who represented
the Thirteenth Illinois district Jn the
lower House of Congress for twenty
years, was side-tracked last November.
He belonged to the small coterie of
statesman in the last House, known as
"Cleveland Cuckoos." After his defeat
for re-election tlfe President appointed
him to a life Judgeship down in Okla
homa. The nonorable Constnntine Buckley
Kilgore of Texas served eight years in
the House from tlie Third district of the
Lone Star State. He was noted for his
kicking and objecting abilities. He
was an adjutant general in the Confederate
army. His hatred for Union soldiers was
so intense that it was impossible to get
a bill through the House Tor the relief of
them when "Buck," as he was familiarly
called, was present. He was not in Con
gress long until he "became known as the
"Great Objector," taking Father Hol
During tlie exciting day of the Fltty
rirflt Congress, when Speaker' Reed was
endeavoring to secure a quorum, "Buck,"
who was locked in the Chamber during
a "call of the House," kicked down a door
and walked out. Wliiledoing his kicking act,
Dlngley, of Slalne, who was on the opposite
side or the door, received a blow in the roce
when the door 'flew open. He still carries
a mark on his nasal appendage asarcminder
of that little episode. "Buck" kicked him
self out of Congress, but, like Springer,
of Illinois, he landed In an Oklahoma Judge
ship. Another noted statesman win be con
spicuous ror Iiis absence. He is Jerry
Simpson, the "Sockless Socrates, or Medi
cine Lodge, Kansas." Jerry. It will be
remembered, came to Congress on the
tidal wave or 1S90. He was elected by
the People's party ot "Bleeding Kansas,"
with the aid or the Democrats.

At 12 o'clock the officiating clergy; attir
ed In Ihclr clerical robes, entered from
the vestry room. Bishop LlttleJohn, who
officiated, followed by Bishop Poller
and the Rev. John Wesley Brown, rector
or the church, took their stations at the
chancel, and waited the arrival or the
bride and bridegroom.
At a few minutes before 12 o'clock car
riages containing the bride, her mother
and the bridesmaids drove up to the
church. The bridal parly at once went to
the smnll room at the Icrt of the entrance,
where the last touches were put on the
BU Thomas's Chtuck,
gowns, and everything was in readiness
for the ceremony.
William K. Vnuderbilt reached the church
on the minute or 12 o'clock. He drove
down rrom the Metropolitan Club, and
escorted his daughter to the altar. When
all was ready Tor the ceremony the church
was closed, and no one was allowed to
enter whether or not they were provided
with a card.
M rs. Vnuderbilt was escorted up the center
aisle to the rront pew ou the north side,
which she occupied with her other children.
Tlie bridal procession formed in the south
ern vestibule. Mr. Warren then began the
wedding march from Lohengrin.
The Duke of Marlborough with bis lest
man, his cousin, the Hou. Ior Guest, en
tered the church from the cstry room and
took their posts at the right of the chancel
and awaited the coming of the bride. The
duke wore a frock suit or dark gray cloth,

Miss Catharine Duerand Miss Elsie Bran

Sliss Daisy Post and Sliss Slarie Wlnthrop;
Miss Edith Morton and Miss Evelyn Burden.
Then came Miss Vanderbllt on the arm of
her father, and carrying in her left hand
the bridal bouquet.
The bridesmaids took positions nt either
side or the chancel. Thebridegroom stepped
forward and took tlie right hand of Miss
Vanderbllt and led her to the chancel steps.

tlie Duke and his bride went to the vestry
room and signed the marriage registry.
At the same time each of the bridesmaids
took a basket of nosegaysand marched back
up the aisle, distributing them among the
guests. As tlie Duke and his bride re-entered
tlie church tlie orchestra played the
wedding march from Tannhauser.
The bridesmaids returned to the chancel
and the bridal party marched down the
aisle, the ushers leading. The bridesmaids
followed them and then came the Duke and
his bride. After them came Mrs. Vander
bllt on the arm of Sir. Guest. The party
immediately entered carriages and drove
to Mrs. Vanderbilt's house, whero the re
ception and breakfast followed.
One feature of tlie wedding which has ex
cited much comment was thefact that few
of W. K. Vanderbilt's family were Invited
either to the church or to the breakfast.
Cornelius Vanderbilt's house Is closed.
He and his f aniUy are in Newport, and will

caused' much talk but little surprise.
A large crowd gathered about Mrs.
Vanderbilt's bouse in the morning and
watched narrowly all the goings on there.
There was as usual a predominance of
women. A squad of police were on hand
to prevent and disorder and to protect
the family and guests from annoyance.
Tho boose was profusely decorated for the
reception to folio w t he wedding. The haUs
were filled with palms and ferns.
A Hungarian orchestra was stationed
under the staircase, screened from view
by a network, of banging vines. The bride
and bridegroom received the guests In
the main drawing room, standing beneath
a large bell of lilies of the valley. Bushes
of chrysanthemums and roses and banks
and wreaths of cut flowers were arranged
atiout the house.
SERVICE OF GOLD.
The wedding breakfast was served in
the large dining-room. Eighteen covers
were laid at the table of the bridal party.
The service was of gold.
Each guest received the customary, wed
ding cake In a small box, having on Us
coer a coronet and the letters C. and M.
One hundred were present at the break

sentatlves of the British Legation at Wash

Outcast From the Profession
Eke Out ii Livelihood.
I ran across u curious character such a
one as would have delighted Dickens in.a
Pennsylvania town the other day.
He stood on an empty packing box at a
street corner early in the evening. A crowd
of 100 or more persons surrounded him,
listening eagerly. The man, who was, per
haps, riftj-, was dressed iu shabby blue
flannel clothes, nis head was bared. As
I approached I noticed that he was ges
ticulating vigorously and that his voice
was raised in Impassioned speech.
"An itinerant preacher," 1 thought. But
w hen I drew ni arer 1 round thai he was not
exhorting his liearers to embrace religion;
lie was declaiming Shakespeare, and his
audience was hanging upon his words with
breathless interest. I Joined the circle.
Presentlv the man said he would give
J tlieina bit of lloman history. In well-chosen
words, Willi great terseness, he told the
story of Caesar's lire, and then plajed the
scene from the tragedy between Casius and
Brutus, In which the lean andhungry oneln
cltes his gentler brother against the tyrant.
The delivery of the lines was superb. I
know or no living Amerlcanactor who could
peak them with more dramatic power or
poetic appreciation. The elocution was cor
rect enough to satisfy therequirements even
of AUred Ayrcs, while feelirg. Imagination
thought and word were conspicuous.
And what a voice! It seemed as ir For

FASHIONABLE FURBELOWS FOR
All Self-Respecting Dogs Wear
High Muffs and Bouquets
It would be both partial and inaccurate
to give this autumn tbe palm or fashionable
popularity to pet dogs of any special breed
or color, because to-day that which marks
the smart dog among bis lesser fcUows is
the wherewithal he Is arrayed. Bull and
fox terriers, dandles and dachscbunds, pugs
and wire-haired Scotch terriers, among the
small canines, are equal favorites; but
after being put in possession of the dog she
wanted the feminine owner now hurries the
astonished lllUe animal oft at once to her
tailor. Faithful Fido Is there helped onto
a table and his measures taken for suit
able winter outside wraps. If Fido is a
pink-faced, blunt-nosed Boston bull ter
rier his blanket is made of dark green
silk corduroj- or heavy damson-colored
cloth, lined with satin ot the sameshadeand
bound with dark green or damson suede.
Ic circles his neck, catches below his chin,
witli three small silver buttons, fits well
down over the loins, and in furthermore held
by a suede or patent leather strap, tbatclr-
cles his whole body and holds on one side
with handsome silver buckles.
This coat must fit as accurately as that
of his mistress does, for 'tis usually, by
the way, made from a piece or her own
gown and it sometimes shows the initials
in sliver thread worked in one corner.
Just up" near the throat, on the left-hand
side, the tallrr Is ordered to work a
buttonhole and fix a rubber strap, for
there every morning and afternoon is fast
ened Fldo's boutonnlere of carnations. But
his dogshlp's wardrobe does not end here,
for in case or weddings he must have a
suitable garment, more particularly nice
in case It Is bis mistress' wedding. Then
tbe blanket is of pure white corduroy,
bound with satin ribbon, while a wide
ribbon tied about his body holds a nosegay
of real orange blossoms or the same sort
of flowers carried In tbe bridal bouquet.
On this occasion he wears around his neck
a thickly quilted ruche of white satin
ribbons in place ot bis collar, and along
witn the bridesmaids he comes In for a
favor of some sort from the groom.
This is apt to be a locket with canine
sentiments engraved on it and a picture
of his mistress inside, or one of those mar

lars Fido has a hair dozen rasclnatlng
neck rixlngs meant ror carriage and visit

bon, or even.or mlroir velvet, and a famil
iar sight on Filth avenue in New York is a
handsome, ferocious-looking brundle bull
dog, who trots at his mistress heels, wear
ing a huge rosette of green velvet on his
collar, and in the midst of the rosette is
pinned a big red rose. Sometimes his col
lar is a rolded band or velvet with two
big rosettes, one under each ear, and a
little knot or violets pirned In the center
or both. Right behind this modish beast
follows the lady's Scotch terrier, an ugly,
sandy haired little animal, whose blankets
are always the latest fashions from Pan.

sylvania men in declining to meet the Bos
ton Athletic Association team jesterday
according to agreement struck the local
football fraternity as a dtepljy of exceed
ing weakness, and brought down upon the
heretofore believed to be Invincible com
bination a good de-al of ridicule. It was
looked upon as a pure case of scare, brought
on by the experience the Fennsylvanlans
had with. the Chicago Athletic Association
The Canterburys have challenged the
Shamrocks for an early game, but the lat
ter will Jiot lake on an engagetnenuwith
them until they have arrived at some
definite understanding with the Polomacn.
The Canterburys are a much heavier team
than the Shamrocks, averaging about 155
pounds, while the Shamrocks average more
than ten pounds less.
Capt. DouglifTry, or the Shamrocks, dis
covered two or three weak spots In the
make-up or the Shamrocks In the game
with tbe Itockville boys on Monday that
be proposes to strengthen at once. One or
tbe-sc holes is to be plugged with a mute
named Kccliner, who played with the
Kechner played right end lor the visitors
on Modday. He made more trouble ror
the Shamrocks than any other man among
their opponents, and his work was the talk
or the entire crowd or spectators. He has
had offers, it Is said, to play In Balti
more and Philadelphia, but wants to come
to Washington, and the Shamrocks have
gladly acce-pted bis services.
Prof. Baldwin and his aggregation orroot
ball players appear to have been lost in the
shnrne. They were at practice regularlya
couple of weeks ago, and were said to be
programmed for a game with tbe Blakes
on the ICth of this month, but the professor
aud the ladies have not been seen or heard
or lately, and It is probable they bave gh en
tlie notion up as a bad job.
Cabura, right end ror the Columbian Col
lege eleven, is not only a tip-top rootball
player, liasebaU plajer and good athlete
generally, but he Is a fast and plucky bicy
cle rider, and will start In the two-mile
race at the Georgetown inter-collegiate
contests on Saturday. He knows his col-li-ge
chum, Schade. is looked upon by many
as a sure winner or that event, barring acci
dent, but he believes he can give the hand
some young blonde a lively chase, notwith
standing his supiiosed superiority.
It was rumored yesterday that big Mike
Mahoney, to whom Georgetown College
boys are looking for great work In the
contests on Saturday, had given it out
that be would not take part in any ot the
events on that day. If big Mike, with his
twenty years, 'six feet four, and 220
pounds, should fall to appear there will
be much disapiiointment, for he Is not
only one ot the very best athletes, but
be Is one of tbe most popular students at
The Baltimore Athletic Club which is to
play here with tbe Columbia Athletic Club
men on the 16th Is rated by Baltimore foot
baU experts to be one or tbe very strongest
club combinations to be found anywhere
in the East. They are spoken of as being
right up in rank with such teams as that of
tbe Boston Athletic Association and Chi
cago Athletic Association, and their friends
predict that the Columbia men will hardly
be able to give them healthy exercise.
The bad weather of last Saturday forced
the postponement for the second time of
the visit of the Central High School eleven
to Laurel to meet tbe team or that town,
and the game has been set ror next Sat
urday. In tbe meantime tbe Centrals are
getting In Eonie telling practice work and
they expect to give tbe Laurel lads a
good shaking up.
The University of Virginia men, so It Is
said, have assured the Columbian 'Varsity
team that they will be glad to give them a
trial on "he gridiron in the near luture.
They may send. la a date Tor the meeting
before the week is over-
Mr. McArthur, who is engineering the
Thanksgiving Day road race, Is sending
entry blanks Tor the event to many promi
nent riders in the East and South, and it
is thought will hear favorably from a
fair share of them. It was said yesterday
that Sims would certainly be among the
starters, if Mudd goes In, as it will make
him feel particularly good to beat the ster
ling man In a race of his own making.
The Gallandet boys do not mince words
in giving reasons for declining to meet the
Columbia Athletic club team. They say
they do not regard slugging as essential to
good football playing. They might have
couched their meaning in mnuer terms, uuc
they probably saidjust what llieywantedto.
This If rurther evidence that there will be
lew contests this year among the stronger
local teams, a ract that will be regretted
by every lover or the TootbaU game.

NOTES ABOUT BOXEItS.
Young Beckett, who is scheduled to meet
"Roaring Joe" near River View on the
1 7th, says if he wins this battle, he wUl be
wllUng to take on anotber one at once.
Beckett is a lively-looking boy. If he can
fight as well as be looks and talks, he
ought to be able to-put up a very lively
mill. Those who claim to know about his
ability believe that he is capable ot giving
any of the boxers of bis jiounds hereabouts
all tbe fight they want, and u good deal
Frank Wongo, the Indian, is iu Phila
delphia trying to make another match with
Jack Hanley. Wongo says the only thing
that kept bim from giving Hanley a drub
bing when be fought him before the Eureka
Club, ot this city, was tbe accident that
overtook him. Wongo broke a bone in one
of bis arms in that battle. The maimed
member is now well, and he wants Hanley
to give him anotber fight. Hanley has
shown no disposition to gratify the In
dian's wishes up to this time.
Jack Daly is said to be getting himself
Into good shape for his meeting on the 11th
with Ned McConnell. Daly admits that be
never in bis lire berore was as anxious to
win a right as he is to win this one. He and
McConnell are very bitter toward each
other, and the battle Is sure to be a vicious
one, Tor both men are strong, clever box
ers and game to the core. The bout Is to .
be with two-ouDce gloves, to a rinish. It
is to take place in private at or near Wil
mington. A select rew or Daly's rrlends
will go rrom this city to see it.
Again tbe report has been sent abroad
that Jack McAullffe has quit the ring. It
is said that McAuUffe was anxious to meet
Kid Lavlgne or Toung Griffo, but that,
as neither or these men has shown any dis
position to meet hitn since they fought
their recent draw. Jack has become dis
gusted and has determined to have noth
ing more to do with tbe ring as a fighter,
though he may turn out a trainer, manager
or backer. He realizes that to await the
pleasure of Lavlgne only makes bim older
and lessens his chances, and he proposes
to not give the Michigan boy or anybody
else the opportunity or making a reputation
orr of a "has been."
The cast end of Washington is turning
out boxers by tbe dozen these days. A
number of tbem are on record as standing
ready to match. On Monday night two of
these newcomers, Tom Shcnk-and Walter
Arnold, uiiddlewelguts, came together in
a barn onthe Bladensburg road, ror a rin
ish fight. Both men are new at the game,
but they are credited with putting up a
mill that for gameness and cleverness
would have been worthy of any of tho
Twenty-two rounds were fought when
Sbenk, who had been saving his strength,
landed a stinging blow on Arnold's jaw
that put the latter out. Up to the twen
tieth round matters were very even. Ar
nold is not satisfied with the result and
has asked ror another chance, but as yet
Shenk has not agreed to give it to blui
