On the Subject.
He Was There at the Bequest of a Friend,
But Knew Nothing of the Young
Mr. Lemoyne, the Other Witness,
clined to be Facetious About
Pittsbcboh, Pa., September 23. "Yes,
I was one of the witnesses to the mar
riage of James G. Blaine," said David
Bell, the well-known attorney, who was
found in his office yesterday afternoon by
a United Press reporter aud questioned
concerning his eonaectlon with that
now famous nuptial event. "I
made a memorandum iu my diary
at the time, which is about all I cau re
member about it Mr. Bell here pro
duced a large cloth bound book, closely
written. The diary covered that portion
of his life from 1S46 until October, 1851.
The memorandum Is as follows: "March
2'J, 1851. In presence of John Lemoyne
aud myself, James G. Blaine, of Ken
tuckywas united lxi the bonds of matri
mony to Miss Harriet Stan wood by the
Rev. Mr. Bryan, at his bouse, Third
street, Pittsburgh, at half past six o'clock
When questioned as to how he came to
be a witness of the marriage, Mr. Bell
said : "I was a graduate at Jefferson Col
lege, and Mr. Blaine was a Washington
man. I don't remember that I had ever
met him before. Jno. Lemoyne knew
bim intimately, aud it was at his request
that I consented to become a witness. I
cau not recall any of the details beyond
the mere fact of my being present at the
ceremony. The whole affair is a blank
In my mind."
"Had you received the impression at
the time that it was a morganatic or
clandestine marriage, do you think you
would have remembered it?" '
"I think that had I received any
such impression the fact would have
left so strong an Impression on my
mind that I should have been able to
recall it. I have been thinking
over the matter pretty lutenty
for the past three weeks, but can recall
no circumstance that would warrant such
a conclusion. Mr. Lemoyne wrote to me
some days ago in regard to the date, but
1 have never received anvcotumunlcatlou
from Mr. Blaine in regard to tho matter.
What I have told you is absolutely all I
know about the matter or am able to
The Other Witness Interviewed.
Chicago, III., September 23. The
Daily Nexus (Indepeudeut Democratic)
has the following:
"Yes, I witnessed Blaiue's marriage in
Pittsburgh in March, 1851," said ex-Con.
gressman John V. Lemoyue, in answer to
a reporter's inquiry.
"Did you know at that time that Blaine
and his wife bad been married previously
"No; were they'Muqulilnirly answered
Mr. Lemoyne, with some surprise.
Mr. Lemoyne has just returned from a
two weeks' huntlug trip iu Minnesota
and Dakota, and when seen had not been
in his house ten minutes. He had not
read the dally papers since he left Chi
cago, and had not seen Mr. Blaine's let
ter to Mr. Phelps, uor his sworn reply
to the interrogatories of the Indianapolis
Sentinel, in both of which Blaine as
serted that be was married secretly in
Kentucky In June, 1850. Mr. Lemoyne
was referred to these, and after looking
at them, said : .
"Well, I cannot say how that was. It
may have been so, but I heard nothing
said by Blaine or anyone else at the time
of the Pittsburgh marriage which led me
to even suppose that there had been a
previous marriage. He says that the
Pittsburgh marriage was bad simply to
satisfy all possible doubts regarding the
legality of the one be claims occurred
previously In Kentucky. Ho made no ex
planation of that sort to those who wit
nessed the Pittsburgh marriage.
"Do you believe that he was married iu
Kentucky at all?"
"Oh, ho must have been," replied
Mr. Lemoyne laughing; "doesn't he
say he was. It makes me think of
what tho man- said about the patent
medicine 'if you don't believe it's good,
just read the printed advertisement and
see what that says.' "
