Church and Home Handsome Presents.
Perfect spring -weather, blue sky, the
scent of flowers everywhere, a shower of
congratulations, smiling faces at every
turn, toasts to the health, happiness and
long life of the bride; such was yesterday.
Buch -was the wedding day of Miss Mary
"Victoria Loiter, who at 11:30 o'clock,
in fit John's Church, before nn immense
concourse of friends from far and near,
plighted her troth to Hon. George Nathaniel
Curzon, of Kedteston, Hall, Lancashire,
Member of Parliament from Soutbport,
Long before the hour set for the ceremony
the approaches to the church were crowded
with the usual throng of people who con
gregate about a church in tho "West End
when a fashionable wedding is in progress.
If nothing else was to be achieved by those
foremost in the throng, they would at least
be gratified by a glimpse of the bride in
all ber wedding splendor as she alighted
from the carriage and walked to the
church portico, after the fashion of brides
innumerable whose marriages have taken
place in historic old St. John's.
It was a gay scene that met Miss Let

ceremony and yet desired to have a glimpse

tlic bravest description. The sidewalks
were lined, the overflow of humanity hav

oppoBlte side of the way by Lafayette
Square and Sixteenth street. All along
H street and down Sixteenth street there
was a massing of carriages of every de
scription of elegance, an array of liveried
Coachmen, the gleam of patent leather top
boot, a roiubow of cockades on the drivers'
hats, the clanking of harness, and the im
patient pawing of the restive, perfectly
j'oomed horses, held in check while the
owners tarried within the church.
GREAT CROWDS OUTSIDE.
It was small wonder that the crowd out
side was constantly receiving additions, as
tho sight of the turnouts and the rapidly
arriving teams, with their elegantly dressed
occupants, was one quite well worth looking
at. It was ju8tsuchanotherapnng morning,
by the way, one year ago, that another and
almost as large a crowd collected on the
east side of Lafayette square, when themar

in the verj bravest of their possessions,
and the general effeot in looking over the

On ''bereide of the chancel rail, where the
br.de and groom stood during the cere
meny, and nnally knelt to receive the bless

was a massing of the tallest palms, with
wt te azaleas rising in front, a mass of
Bncwy bloom. The reredos held tall gold
chalices filled with Easter lHies.
The tall palms waved and rustled with
every slightest current of air, a background
of graceful artistic green that showed to
best advantage the tvory whiteness of the
magnificent wedding gown, the full court
tra n falling in gleaming folds that swept
the chancel steps as the bride knelt with
tho groom to receive tho blessing of the
char u at the conclusion of the ceremony.
ENTER THE WEDDING PARTY.
Above the chancel rail the tallest of the
palms met and arched over the kneeling

Prior to tho entrance of the wedding

from "Romeo and Juliet." In a few mo

He Investigated All the Circumstances Sur
rounding the Death of Miss Canter and
Mr. Lyles and Decided That It Was
Purely Accidental Friends Indignant
Because of Sensational Reports.
Side by side, In the church In which they

Both the young peoplo were members
of the choir of Emanuel P. E. Church, and
were universally popular in Anacostia.
Miss Canter has been housokceper for tier
father, Mr. George Cantor, for a number of
years, and she was a bright, pretty girl,

After the recovery of Lyles' body, about
llo'clock yesterday morning by the police
boat Joe Blackburn, Coroner Hammett
visited Anacostia, and after a most tlior
oughinvestigationof the afralrdccided that
no inquest was necessary, as the drowning
was purely accidental.
Indignation Is felt among the friends
of the two young people at the sensational
rcportB of the accident reported in another
paper, in whichitwas alleged thatthenffalr
bore evidence ofa double suicide or a quar
rel. All of tho witnesses to the affair
state that It was impossible to make any
thing but an accident of it except by a wild
stretch of the most vivid imagination.
HE SAW THEM DROWN.
Mr. James S. Martin, who is a resident
of Anacostia, and has known botli Miss
a sail boat, when about two hundred yards
distant and made all possible haste to the
scene, but arrived too late to render any
assistance. He said that the young peo
ple were trying to exchange places in the
boat, when Miss Canter lost her balance
and fell overboard. Lyles in trying to
catch her, also fell in the river.
Mary Brown, a young colored woman,
who lives at 1011 Seventh street southeast,
also witnessed the accidentfrom the wharf,
and told substantially the samo story as
Mr. Martin. She said that when the young
lady lost her balance she screamed, and the
young man tried to catch her, but both
fell in the river.

Philadelphia, April 22. Dr. Thomas S.
K. Morton, of this city, who was in consulta

night that if Mrs. Parnell lives sho will bo
permanently deranged. He said that this
almost invariably follows concussiou of tho
brain, accompanied by insensibility.
In his opinion it is not unlikely that tho
old lady's wonderful vitality will save her
life. Sho is eighty-six years old and not
eighty, as lias been printed, but had he not
known otherwise, he would not have taken
her to bo raoro than fifty-six.

aspect of the caso has improved.

Albany, N. Y., April 22. As has been
expected the resolution to extend the scope
of the special bribery investigation com
mittee was offered to-night, but there
was some surprise when Senator Reynolds
did it. He said that his actions on the
police bills had been questioned, and the
resolution called for an investigation of
the bi-partisan police bill. He said he
owed this to himself, bis friends, con
stituents and colleagues.
Senator Gaines said that he did not ob
ject to the resolution, but he wauted it
understood that he would not permit the
side-tracking of the charges of bribery in
connection with the firemcns' salary bill.
Let the whole matter be examined, but
the original purpose was entitled to the
right of way.
Senator O'Connor asked that the reso
lution be laid aside until to-morrow, when
tho investigating commmittee would be
iu session and could decide what ought to
be done. If any senator had been guilty of
corrupt acts the people ought to know it.
The resolution was laid aside.

in the sensational Stiles divorce case re
cently on trial in Chicago, were arrested
this evening on a charge of adultery.

is claimed they had been living together at
St. Charles, 111. Crane was Indicted as
Herbert P. Crane, alias Bert Crane, and
Mrs. Stiles as Lizzie P. Stiles, alias Lillian
The divorce created much comment owing
to the social prominence of those concerned.
It will be remembered that Judge Ewlng
dismissed the case two weeks ago on the
ground that "no case had been made out."
Mr. Stiles' attorney made an ineffectual
effort to have the caso reopened, making
the same charges as that on which to-day'a
indictment is based.

Yokohama, April 22. Following is the
text of a statement issued by the Japanese
government, denying the reports that it has
concluded an offensive and defensive al
liance with China, and declaring that the
commercial advantagesSecured by Japan
will also bo enjoyed by the other powers
under the favored nation treatment:
"Misapprehensions ate reported to be
current in Europe regarding the terms of

represented that Japan has secured a 2
per cent, ad valorem duty on imports, in
stead of a specific duty, and has also
formed an offensivo and defensive alli

"The commercial consesslons obtained
by Japan, beyond those- already secured by
the treaty powers under the favored-nation
clause, comprise the right to navigato
the Yaug-tse-Kiang to Chung-King, and also
the Woo-Sung river and the canals lead

right to Import machinery and certain
goods duty free, and to establish fac
"These concessions arc not exclusive
to Japan. They naturally extend to tho
European powers in virtue of the favored
nation clause. In securing these priv
ileges for all, Japan expects the ap
proval of all the powers.

alliance does not exist."

the pretenaion that any power or powers
are entitled to dictate the terms of peace
between the two nations. It adcls:
"Great Britain's interests are involved
quite as much as Russia's, but we Ond no
