LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 5. — The
Courier-Journal to-day print? a sensational
FTory in effect that Governor Bradley of
Kentucky has joined the American Pro
tective Association, and is the associa
tion's candidate for President. The state
ment is conrirmed by his presence at the
cession of the Louisville American Pro
tective Association council?. The Courier
.lounial says Governor Bradley was ac-
I into that order on the afternoon of
.^f [.tern ber 28, 1895, at the Victoria Hotel
in this city under a special dispensation
granted by State President C. E. Sapp.
About the middle of last September the
American Protective Association of the
fr-tate determined to indorse some one of
the tickets then in the field. It indorsed
all of the Republican ticket with the ci
i • ption of Colonel Bradley, who was the
candidate for Governor on that ticket. In
regard to the candidafe for Governor there
•was some dissension. Governor Bradley
■was not indorsed because it was said that
some of his family were Catholics, and the
American Protective Association turned
toward Thomas Pettit, the Populist can
It is said Pettit would have been in
dorsed, but for the fact that Bradley be-
came a member of the order.
Realizing that matters were in a serious
condition, some of Bradley's friends re
solred to have him join the order. On
ihe afternoon of September 27 last, Brad
ley spoke at Scottsville, in AJJeu County.
He was met at that place by John P.
Fliltr Jr., County Attorney of Jefferson
Coonty, »iio assured him that everything
was lost it he did not join the A. P. A.
Pults made the trip to Scottsville espe
cially to bring Bradley to Louisville for
the purpose of having him initiated, and
Bradley consented. Leaving Scottsville
on the afternoon or night of September
27, they arrived at the Victoria Hotel in
this city in time for breakfast on the
morning of Saturday, September 28. He
was initiated on that day, the oath being
administered by Georee H. Thomas.
Several days ago, the Courier- Journal
add?, Governor Bradley received a tele-
pram from the Supreme Advisory Board
cf the American Protective Association in
Washington. The telegram, it is said,
told the Governor to t>e of good cheer and
iiot withdraw from the Presidential race.
The further information was conveyed
that the American Protective Association
would have a majority in the Republican
National Convention; that it was for
Bradley and would never vote for McKin
ley. no matter how the delegates were in
structed, because, it is said. Governor Mc-
Kinley had joined the Ancient Order of
Hibernians some time ago.
It is Baid further that the telegram to
Governor Bradley informed him that Lin

candidate, was off the track, and that both

that organization would rally to his sup

NEW YORK, Ni V., April s.—Ex-Presi
dent Harrison spent the most quiet day of
his visit to the metropolis to-day. He re
tired at 9 o'clock this evening, after dining
with his former Attorney-General and law
partner, W. H. H. Miller. It has been a
day of declinations, both by the general
aud his friends, regarding the details of
to-morrow's wedding. General Harrison
declined to say a word about it to the pub
lic. His secretary, Mr. Tibbetts, who is to
be one of the ushers, declined to tell at
what hour the ceremony in St. Thomas
Church is to take place. He also declined
to gave any particulars whatever about
the affair and its participants.
Mrs. Dimmick declined to talk, and her
friend?, Mrs. L. V. ParKer and Mrs. John
A. C. Gray, declined to tell any of the in
teresting things that had come to their
Mr. Harrison arose at 7 o'clock a. m.
and spent some time in looking over his
mail, and it was 9 o'clock when he went
down to breakfast in company with
Colonel Corbin, U. 3. A., who had called,
and Private Secretary Tibbetta. After
breakfast they were joined by Daniel T.
Ransdell, who is to be an usher, a:id the
party talked for some time. General Har
rison wrote a few letters, and at noon was
joined by his former Attorney-General,
with whom Mr. Harrison was alone for
upward of an hour. They then started for
a walk, and passed out at the Twenty
third street door of the hotel to avoid the
reporters who were in the corridors. The
ex-President was recognized by but few
pedestrians, and after strolling up Fifth
avenue a few blocks returned to his hotel
and stayed in his apartments umi! dinner
Every one connected with the church
ceremony declined to-day to state the
exact time at which it is to occur. That is
done to avoid a crowd around St. Thomas',
although Police Inspector Cortlight has
taken special precautions to prevent any
annoyance to the bridal party. It is
known, however, that the ceremony will
take place between 5 and 6 o'clock in the
afternoon, unless another change is made
in the plans.
The ushers, Messrs. Tibbctts and Rans
dell, Mrs. Parker, the wife of Lieutenant
Parker, U. S. N., who is Mrs. Dimmick's
sister, and Mrs. Parker of Washington, the
wife of Major Parker, will accompany Gen
eral Harrison and his bride as far as Phila
delphia in his special car after the wed
ding. A wedding dinner will be served
on the train. Although it was reported
that William C. Whitney had made prep
arations for a wedding dinner at his home
directly after the church ceremony, he re
fused to confirm it and so do the others.

Mrs. Dimmick. Senator Elkins, who held
the portfolio of War, went to New York
last night. Senator Proctor, who pre
ceded Elkins in the War office, who is the

wedding, but may go in the morning if he
feels well enough to make the trip. There
will be present at the wedding besides
those named Messrs. Charles \V. Foster of

INDIANAPOLIS, Ixd., April s— Russell
Harrison and Mrs. McKee, the son and
daughter of General Harrison, did not
leave for New York to-day to attend the
wedding of the ex-President and Mrs.
Dimruick to-morrow, and they will not
be present at the ceremony. From the
time that the Harrison-Dimmick engage
ment was iir.st reported it was an open
secret here that the children of the ex-
President were bitterly hostile to a second
marriage. Wi.-en she :came here some
time ago, Mrs. McKee, instead of going to
the residence of her father, which has
always been her stopping place while in
the city, went to the home of her husband,
and the only visits that she has made to
her former home have been for the pur
pose o! removing her personal belongings.
Mrs. McKee will leave for her home in
Boston next Tuesday, and so will not bn
present when her father brings his new
bride to the old home on Delaware street.

FORTVSE FOR A STENOGRAPHER.
Pretty Gertrude Hopkins the Heir to
CLEVELAND, Ohio, April s.— Miss Ger
trude Hopkins, one of the official stenog
raphers in the Common Pleas Court, who
has a surplus of personal beauty, will
shortly have a typewriter for sale cheap,
unless she wants to keep it as a memento
of "former days." Miss Hopkins has dis
covered that she is an heiress to $7,000,000.
Her mother, formerly a Miss Barker, was
born in New York in 1836. Miss Josephine
Barker was the daußhter of James Barker,
who was born in England. The latter was
a fourth son, and as the English law at the
timtj gave all the property to the eldest son,
he came to America. Later the eldest son,
who inherited the property, becoming dis
solute, sold away his life interests.
A change in the English laws turned the
attention of the American Barkers to the
property, and they beean suit to recover
the Jife interest. Solicitors nave been re
tained to look after Miss Hopkins' inter
ests. It is stated that there are very good
prospects of her winning the case. There
are not many claimants, and if the suit is
won Miss Hopkins will be very wealthy.

the Venezuelan Government to American
capitalists in the gold country at the

Booth-Tucker was as follows:
"In regard to the very painful circum
stances that brought us here, I want to say
I want your prayers. My wife wants your
prayers. As for the army, you need not be
anxious. With the help of God we are not
going to suffer materially, but we will
