APOSTLE HEBER J. GRANT
ARRESTED FOR POLYGAMY
SALT LAKE, Nov. 11. Apostle Grant of the Mormon church
lias been arrested for polygamy.
Miss May Goelet, the most courted
girl in the world and the richest girl in
her own right in America, will hence
forth be known as the Duchess of Rox
burghe. The Duchess is worth in her
own right about $30,000,000.
It is eight years since the courting of
Miss Goelet began. In that time the
twenty men who have been most
conspicuous among her suitors have all
had interesting or remarkable adven
tures. Some have gone to war, some
have died, some have become famous.
The twenty were: The Duke of Rox
burghe, the Grand Duke Boris of Rus
sia, Prince Franc-i of Teck, the Prince
Henri of Orleans. Prince Hugo of Ho
henlohe, the Prince of Sagan, the Duke
of Abruzzi, the Duke of Manchester,
the Earl of Shaftesbury, Lord Ingestre,
Lord Dalmeny, the Hon. Lionel Roths
child, Captain Oswald Ames. Henry
Cavendish, Lord Crichton, Paul Des
chanel, Santos Dumont, Signor Marco
ni, Jasques Lebaudy and Craig Wads
worth. Among them they possessed $81,000,
000, this sum being divided among
twelve of them, while the rest were
virtually penniless. These twelve had
fourteen splendid castles, palaces and
villas in England, France and Ger
many. Eight years ago when this universal
international courtship began Miss
Goelet was only seventeen years old.
But with social talents and cleverness
inherited from a mother of the noted
R. T. Wilson family, and a perfect
education, she took a leading place in
society at once. The occasion on
which she first attracted the attention
of American society was at the wed
ding of Miss ("onsuelo Vanderbilt to the
Duke of Marlborough in 1S95, when she
was a bridesmaid.
The new Duchess is slight, dark and
very attractive. It is an exaggeration
to say that she is strikingly handsome,
as many have done. Two cynical so
ciety men were discussing the point,
and one of them said:
"Would you call her face handsome?"
"Not exactly but her fortune Is,"
said the other.
Today at twenty-five the Duchess of
Roxburghe is in absolute possession of
$30,000,000 of New York real estate.
One of her earliest suitors was the
Duke of Manchester. His engagement
was actually announced by the Lon
don "Daily Telegraph." Mr. Ogden
Goelet, who was then alive, told a re
porter that he could never allow his
daughter to marry a foreigner. It was
later learned that Miss Goelet had vol
untarily declined the Duke. After that
he c'onsoled himself for a time with
journalism and next year eloDed with
Miss Zimmerman of Cincinnati a mar
riage which has turned out cuite hao
pily. Miss Goelet had suitors in the highest
society of every European country.
There was Prince Henri of Orleans, by
far the most enterprising member of
the dethroned royal family of France.
He thought that Miss Goelet's $30,000,
000 would help the royalist cause, but
he sought it in vain. Then he tried
to win fame as an explorer and died
miserably in Tonkin.
The most illustrious of all by birth
was the Grand Duke Boris, first cousin
of the Czar of Russia. When he was
staying with the Goelets at Newport
Mrs. Stuyvesant Fish remarked that
"everybody knew he was there to mar
ry Miss Goelet and pay off his debts."
A most interesting suitor in France
was the brilliant Paul Deschanel, now
President of the Chamber of Deouties
and regarded as the next President of
the republic. He needed a rich wife
badly in his political career, but he
failed to win Miss Goelet.
Jacques Lebaudy, who is as rich as
Miss Goelet, being the son of the great
est sugar refiner in France, has re
cently created himself Emperor of the
Sahara. Miss Goelet might have been
Empress.
In Italy an exalted suitor was the
Duke of Abruzzi, cousin of the Kine:
of Italy. When he found that there
was no hope for him he organized an
expedition to the North Pole and scored
the farthest North.

government troops with the result that the place was left in the
possession of the rebels until the whole rebellion was later crushed.
