mony—Bride Weeps," but the
Groom Is Stolid.
"Can a woman marry who is in
sane?" demanded Laverne A. Clarke
yesterday of Deputy Robinson in the
office of the clerk of courts. Clarke's
eyes were listened not upon Mr. Rob
inson, but on the tremulous face of the
pretty girl who had accompanied him
into the office. With the couple was an
attorney who had demanded a license
for the twain. The deputy hesitated.
The girl's face flushed crimson. The
attorney looked uncomfortable.
"I ask you the question because she's
crazy," exclaimed Clarke excitedly, no
trace of softening in the grim face he
turned to his pretty bride elect.
"I'm not insane—l never was in
sane," sobbed the girl, pressing a flimsy
bit of cambric to her eyes. "I've had
trouble, but it didn't make me crazy.
He says I tried to cut my throat, but
it isn't true and —" Sobs interrupted
the little bride's protest.
These sobs were too much for the
deputy. He issued the license and the
odd trio departed.
Later in the afternoon they entered
Justice Mills' office and the attorney,
again being the spokesman, asked that
the nuptial knot be tied.
The girl was still weeping, but the
groom had ceased to protest. He stood
during the ceremony coatless and vest
less, a cynical smile on his face. His
shirt sleeves were rolled up to his el
bows and his suspenders hung loose.
The instant the marriage- ceremony
was over he picked up his hat and

Is Growing Strained and It Is Ex

Go Out Today.
The noon-day meal for several hun
dred j>epple was rudely interrupted
yesterday at many of the down-town
restaurants when members of the
Waiters' union quit work. Business
was brought to a standstill, and scores
of patrons were obliged to return to
work without their dinners.
Three restaurants were affected by
the walk-out at noon and a fourth was
added last evening, when the employes
of the Central restaurant gave up their
positions. The other restaurants
where strikes were declared are: Neu
mann's cafe, Sixth and Cedar streets;
the Rockaway, 143 East Seventh, and
the New York Kitchen, 167 East Sev
Employers Sign Scale.
Last night a number of the employ
ers decided to give in to the waiters,
after trying to get through two meals
without their assistance.
These men capitulated and acceded*
to all the demands of the waiters and
signed the scale.
The men in these houses will be on
hand this morning to wait on the cus
tomers and the trouble is over as far
as they are concerned.
The situation in all the restaurants,
when the strike was declared was lu
dicrous. Not until the guests were
seated to the tables and lunch coun
ters did the men spring the walk-out.
Orders that were being given were
cut short and in many instances only
half the meal was served.
Had to Eat Without Beer.
In Neumann's a family was seated
at one of the tables. They had arrived
at the cafe a few moments before 12
o'clock and had given their order. The
sauerkraut, rye bread and spareribs
were served, but the beer was on the
way when .the order to quit was given
by the head waiter. Immediately the
waiter dropped the "suds."
The family waited for the beer, but
it was not forthcoming. Eating spare
ribs and sauerkraut without liquid re
freshments is dry work and at last the
man of the party became impatient.
"Herr Neumann," he crjed, ''My
beer?" But Mr. Neumann had donned
the discarded garb of the head waiter
and was busy in another part of the
room. Repeated cries from the patron
brought no results, and with a dis
gusted air he drank a glass of water.
Several others, who were unable to
secure service, left the cafe.
At the Rockaway and the New York
Kitchen the situation was about the
same. The busy clerks, with a ten
minute lunch recess, clamored for
victuals. But the food did not come.
Coffee was served, but the "sinker"
remained on the side shelf. W. O. Wil
liams, the proprietor, acted as head
waiter and, dish collector. The cashier
turned in, and a few women were em
ployed to help out.
But the combined help did little to
relieve the situation. Nine trained
waiters had quit, and only three inex
perienced hands were available to take
"We want our lunch," demanded a
crowd of clerks.
"Well, if you do, come and get It,"
replied Mr. Williams. There was a
rush and crush. Five men behind the
counter served their own dinner. Oth
er patrons who came later were also
allowed to serve themselves, while
Mr. Williams gathered dirty dishes
and handed out checks.
"There is little doing today," said
the cook at the New York Kitchen.
'One order every five minutes is about
the rate. All is peaceful here, while
in the lunch room there is a rush and

Strike at Supper Time.
Six waiters struck at the Centra!
restaurant at supper time. The res
taurant was crowded with patrons
from the cafes where the walk-outs
had occurred at noon.
"Now quit/ said the head waiter at
five minutes past 6, and the six em
ployes walked out. A girl and the two
proprietors took care of the crowd but
it was long after 7 o'clock before any
of the guests received their supper.
"If the restaurant owners don't sign
the scale before Monday," said one of
the members of the "Waiters' union last
night, "the cooks will go out on a sym
pathetic strike Monday. We are
bound to win, for the restaurant own
ers are at our mercy.''
The men are demanding $9 a week
and a year's contract with the em
ployers. Many of the restaurants are
now paying the salary demanded by
the men, but object to signing the con

declared President Warner, "and what
disposition will the board make of the
Someone moved that the disposition
of the case be left to the president,
and Mr. Warner immediately ordered a
fine of $5 imposed.
The board by a unanimous vote
adopted the report of Vice President
Schweizer, who investigated the
charges made by D. D. Smith regard
ing- the delay of the department in re
sponding to an alarm of fire on Lincoln
avenue the morning of Aug. 5»
Mr. Smith, who is an insurance
agent and carried insurance on some
of the buildings burned, charged that
the apparatus arrived on the scene
two hours after the fire and that only
one hose cart responded.
Eighteen Minutes After Alarm.
In the report of his investigation
Vice President Schweizer says:
"Engine Company No. 14 and Hook
and Ladder company was sent out to
the fire at 3:08 on a telephone mes
sage from a person who informed the
operator that there was a fire on Lin
coln avenue beyond the Short line
tracks.- Some minutes later more defi
nite information was received and En
gine Company No. 5 was sent to the
scene a^ 3:12 o'clock. Hose Company
No. 14 arrived at the fire eighteen
minutes after being notified and a fe\r
minutes ahead of the steamer, and
then one of the houses was entirely de
stroyed. An effort was made to get a
stream on from the hydrant but the
pressure was not strong enough to be
of any use. The engine arrived four
minutes later, was at once put to work
and when Engine No. 5 arrived there
was no further danger of the fire
'While it is to be regretted that the
aepartment was not advised of the
fire sooner, it is a fact that neither the
department nor any of its members
were in any way to blame for this
delay. The department must be first
advised of a fire over its alarm sys
tem by someone pulling a box, or ad
vised by telephone as to its exact lo
cation before any companies can be
sent out by operators in the fire alarm
Department Was Not Late.
"I regret very much that any citizen
should have been called upon to find
any fault with the workings of the de
partment in this case, but the com
plaints were not justified, for there is
nothing to show the department was
late in arriving at the fire after it had
been reported, nor is there anything to
show that the department did not get
to work quickly after arriving on the
scene. The total loss from this fire will
not exceed $6,000, and this is a small
matter compared to what may happen
some day in this district if a fire oc
curs and our inside companies should
be at work at a fire in another section
of the city.
"This is another instance where It
has been proven that the contention of
the present fire commissioners is cor
rect in that the western portion of the
city is not properly protected with
fire apparatus, and the board should
be provided with funds to make addi
tions to the department as recom
mended in its annual report in Jan
Would Amend Charter.
Following the adoption of the report
the board discussed the advisability of
appearing before the charter commis
sion and securing an amendment
which would give an increased fund
for the department. The park board
had «ecured an increase or an amend
ment providing for one, and the fire
department should not be overlooked.
There was some question as to wheth
er there could be any relief gained
from the charter commission, and
President Warner and
Freeman were instructed to consul
