The intention is to use the corner
stone as the bed of a monument to
be erected on the site of the Missouri
building to commemorate forever
with appropriate inscriptions Missou
ri's participation in the Louisiana
Purchase exposition. No metallic
case was placed inside the stone, as
is usual with corner stones, because
the building will be temporary. When,
however, the monument is erected the
case will be installed.
The Missouri building will be the
finest state building ever built at a
World's fair. The dimensions of the
building, over all, are 311 feet 6 inches
by 178 feet SHi inches. The gavel used
for the laying of the corner stone is
known as the Washington gavel, and
was used by George Washington in
Masonic lodge meetings. This imple
ment was also used in laying the cor
ner stone of the capitol at Washing
ton. Other State Sitea Dedicated.

blows drove the stake deep into the

the state of Iowa has planted let no
man uproot." He then made a brief
address dedicating the site as the
home of Iowa during the World's fair,
Col. Lafe Young, of Des Moines, and
others made brief addresses in con
cluding the ceremony.
Almost within a stone s throw of
Iowa's site the spot to be occupied
by Oklahoma's building was being"
dedicated at the same time.
Gov. Ferguson made a brief ad

dismissed the guests, because in read
ing the marriage license he found the

The wedding was to have been vnai
of A. Lincoln Chase, manager ot a
department store here, and Miss
Gladys A. G. Geer, daughter of one of
the oldest residents of Hartford.
Mr. Chase and Miss Geer had start
ed down the center aisle, when, sud
denly, at the rector's call, the party
stopped within a few feet of. the
chancel rail. After a hurried consul
tation Mr. Chase and Miss Geer, much
embarrassed, turned and hurried out
of the church.
Advancing to the altar, Dr. Good
win said: "Friends, the wedding has
been postponed." This was all the
explanation he made.
Later, Dr. Goodwin said: "The laws
of the Episcopal church forbid me to
marry a divorced person. I did not
know the circumstances until a read
the license while I was in the church
ready to perform the ceremony. I
am very sorry to have caused the par

not act otherwise."

The necent Marriage in England
Discussed by Bishop Doane.
Albany, N. Y., May 2. RU Rev. Wm.
Crosswell Doane, D. D., Protestant
Episcopal bishop of Albany, who is
known throughout the United States
as being strenuously opposed to the
marriage of divorced persons, asserts
that the Church of England had noth
ing to do with the recent marriage of
Wm. K. Vanderbilt and Mrs. Ruther
ford in London, beyond the fact that
the ceremony was sanctioned by one
of its chancellors, whom he regard
in the same light as a civil official
who issues licenses in this country.
The bishon said: "It is a very grave
scandal, but the Church of England
had nothing to do with it be
yond the fact that Mr. Van
derbilt secured a clergyman of th
church to marry him. He applied to
the chancellor for the license and got
it. The chancellor's position in En
gland is about that of the civil official
who issues licenses in this country.
The bishop of London had nothing to
do with it and, therefore, the church
herself was not involved."
BISHOP BCRGESS VIEWS.
Am Event Tliat Could JVot Possibly
Oeenr In This Country.
New York, May 2. Bishop Freder
ick Burgess, of the Long Island Epis
copal diocese, speaking of the an-
derbilt-Rutherford marriage, said:
This could not possibly occur in this
country, as our ecclesiastical laws ot
the Episcopal church would not for
a moment permit it. I have no doubt
whatever that Rer. Mr. Hadden, who
performed the ceremony, will be rep
rimanded. In this country it would
result in the clergyman being sus
pended from his diocese and this
would virtually be a complete suspen
sion from the church, as he could not
enter any other diocese.
"I am personally very .much op
posed to divorced people marrying
in the Episcopal church, even though
one may be innocent."

Washington, Maj- 2. Nine Italian
laborers who have been working in

complained at the Italian embassy

their destination they were compelled
to engage in blasting and other haz
ardous labors. Four of their party,
which originally numbered 30, they
say, were seriously injured, and the
remainder, when they protested, were
seized, their hands tied with cords,
and they were forced to return to
work under an armed guard.
