MISS DEAN GETS A DECREE
She Is Now Free to Marry an Un
New Yoik Court Grants tho Request
for an Annulment of Her Alli
ance "With Brown.
-New York, Aug. 5. The marriage of
Mr. rruncls "W. Blown, the "Washington
broker, and Madge Dean, the actress, was
annulled by a decice signed by Justice
Nash In the supreme court today. The
annulment "was asked for by MlssDean on
the ground that Brown had a wife living
at the time of her marriage, on August .5,
.Miss liean did notappear in court at any
time during the trial. Brown, however,
made no attempt to pievent tbe annulment-
Be wab in China at the time, his
biokorage business in "Washington Laving
proved a failure, and he sent a derosition
Baying that his first wire was living.
His only excuse was that he "was men
tally and legally Incompetent to contract
the second marriage. He stated that he
had been drinking heavily at the time of
the second ceremony, and that his mind
was temporarily affected. Bis ideas
"were confused and hazy, and he didn't
reall7e what he was doing
Frank Brown is in "Washington at the
present time, staying with his mother.
At the time of Madge Bean's disclosure
the first Mrs. Frank Brown gave him up.
They have not arranged a reconcllllatlon
clnce that time, but It is understood that
Mr. Brown is now endeavoring to do so, and
has made eloquent pleas, both by letter
and through personal friends. It is be
lieved that this decree in New York will
aid hi m in this attempt, and that the
Browns will before long be a happy and re
united family again.
Brown's career as a broker in "Wash
ington was as remarkable as his matri
monial one He 't a man of much per
sonal attractiveness In face and In man
ner, and his free and easy generosity made
him many friends, genuine and other
wise, ne spent thousands of dollars with
a recklessness which made him a marked
roan He and his friends ate costly sup
pers, drank champagne, tipped waiters
$20 bills, drov e handsome turnouts all out
of Mr. Brown's pocket, though it after
ward developed that his right to use the
money was questionable.
Of a sudden, the brokerage business of
Frank Brown went under, and it was
discoered that various people in "Wash
ington were out tomething like 23,000
It waB soon after this tiat it was found
that part of this 25,000 had been in
vested in winning the affections of the
sprightly Miss Bean, the footlight fairy.

did not contain a great deal of grain.
Tne explosion shook the entire norths estern
part or the city and part of the north
The theory advanced by Fire Chief
Sweeaie is that It was spontaneous com
bustion of grain dust, which gathers In
elevators, and which Is extremely dan
gerous. Immediately nfter the explosion
flames burst from the ruins, and what was
left of the building was practically de
stroyed by fire. An alarm was sent in and
noon repeated, but not until the service
within early call had been summoned was
the cry for engines stopped E cry police
ambulance iu the city was sent for. A
switching crtw on the Northwestern Rail
road was passing the elevator at the
time, and it If reported that a number of
men were caught by a falling wall
The alarm brought twenty engines and
the fire tug Yosemite, which steamed up
to the side of the building. In a moment
the tug's sides were blazing and she put
off. A tug took, off the crew, and a stream
of water from a fire engine on chore ex

were sufficiently under control firemen
pushed through the smoke. They dis
covered tlie bodies of two men burned to a

Columbus, O., Aug. 5. President Ratch
ford tody made public a letter Just re
ceived from Gov. Atkinson, of "West Vir
ginia, In regard to the Injunctions Issued
in Mirion county, In that State, against
the miners' organizers.
Theletter is addressed to Messrs. Gompers,
Sovereign, and Ratchford, who waited
upon him recently in his office in Charles
ton. He say t hat he understands they have
never been legally served with this in
Junction, and thut in view of the fact
that the Judicial and executive branches
of tho State government are distinctly
separated, it would be Improper for him
to express an opinion of the pioceedlngs.
Ho adds: "I hac, however, requested
the Attorney-General toappcar in this
matter, and assist In having an early adjudi
cation by the supreme court of this State,
of this Injunction proceeding. I have done
this because this lnjuuctbi presents

it is tbe first of the kind issued in thlrs
State, and becauss it affects the rights of a
large number of citizens of West Virginia.
"The bill of rights of the constitution of
this State guarantees the right to assemble
in a peaceable manner, lo consult or

Iu other words, I claim the right for

The Sloops Mnhe a Fairly Interest
ing Race, But tbe Vigilant Was
2sot Sailed for AH That Is in
Her Colonia Miy Have to Rua
Newport, R. I,, Aug.S.-yrhe.racrafprthe
Goelet cups waa sailed today in$a"'fresh
northeast breeze and something of a sea.
The sloop cup was won by Navahoe and
the schooner cup by Colonia. The race lost
much or its significance and interest this
5 ear from the fact that the Vigilant was
Navahoe'3 only competitor, while in the
schooner class Colonia had a walkover,
something unprecedented since the cups
were first offered for competition, fifteen
The .-.loops made a fairly interesting
race, but those watching it could not help
feeling that Vigilant waa not being sailed
for all she was worth. The Navahoe was
handled In a masterly manner by Capt.
Crocker, and showed a splendid turn o
speed, both on andofr the wind.
The race was sailed over the thirty
eight Block Island course. In the early
forenoon ir was raining heavily, so a post
ponement was ordered. Later, however,
the signal for the race was made and Vigi
lant, Navahoe and Colonia responded and.
got under way for Brenton'o Reef and
the start at thelightshlp.
The start was made by the bloops at
1215, the regatta committee being on
board the i-tcam yacht Margherlta. The
preparatory signal minutes before that
found them decidedly nnprepared. Neither
of them had sails aloft, and they were
still getting working topsails Into place as
they crossed the line. Vigilant crossed
at 12.18 22 and Navahoe at 12:19.4. Both
had booms to scarboard, but soon set spin
nakers to starlioard, with booms wUl off
to port. N avahoe w as moving fast,
and the long run to the first mark sho
pulled up clowly on the Vigilant, so that
she was close enough to take an ad
vantage of an accident. Tbe mark waa be
ing t from the tug Luckenbach.
In the heavy sea the raft carrying the
flag was capsized and there was no tima
to right it So a second mark was wa
but it was to the eastward of the other
one, and both boats had to bring the
wind on the quarter to reach It. Navahoe
was first around the mark at 2.40 09, and
Vigilant at 2-40 30. Both boats held
their port taok, but there was a big
difference in their sailing. Vigilant was
'held very high and was pinched ac times
until ,her topsail was aback and hec break
sails fluttering. There seemed to be
a difference of nearly a point in the
pointing or the noats. Navahoe had had
trouble with her topsails on the run down,
and now took it down and set another. j
She held the port tach. until a.15, then
went to starboard and came in toward
Vigilant. Five minutes later with the
boats within half a mile or each other,
Vigdant tacked to starboard. For just
hair an hour the boats held their star
board tacks, much the same as on the first
tack. Vigilant was pointing higher, but
Navahoe was doing the footing and was
slowly pulling up on even terms. Tha
race at this point was a strong reminder
of the critical point iu tho first cup race
In 1895 between Defender and Valkjne.
The boats were on the same tack as on
that event and, like Defender, Navahoe
was astern, but out to weather of tho
other's course when tack was taken.
At o 30, with Navahoe ranging up very
fast, Vigilant tacked to port In an ef
fort to cros bee bow, but failed, jmd
was com Mllcd to go under stern Navahoe
lacked once on the Vlgllant's weather
quarter and had her antagonist beaten,
barring accident Navahoe.at4.0 1, tacked,
to starboard, with the "West Island mark
not far avay At 4 00:40 she rounded it,
while the Vigilant was timed at 107.01-Navaho'-
set a balloon jib-topall, whlla
the Visitant set only a No 1 jib topsail,
and, latoron, a balloon forestaysall Hardly
was the Vigilant round the stake than,
she bogan to luff nut on Navahoe'a wea
ther quarter The latter responded until
her ballooner was half-a-Uack Vigilant
lurfed further and higher than was pos
sible Tor Navahoe with her ballooner, and
rinally got her wind and ran by her to
windward with a rush.
The sailing was of the most exciting;
kind, and for a mile there was hardly
clerir space between Navahoe's bowsprit
and Vlgllant's main boom: then Navahoa
began to giin nnd pulled away to a lead
or two or three lengths across thelina.
Colonia all this time had been having a
race of her own anddolngfalrly well with
the sloops, but she attracted no attention.
