direful silence. We hope the reverend

J. Alxz Montgomery knocked the re
doubtable Capt. Koehler clear out of the
ring in the Fifth ward caucus Tuesday
night. ThU" would seem to indicate that
rotation in office is applicable to the city
clerkship as well as other offices, and that
Koehler will have to drop the plum he
has so long; enjoyed.
It looks as though Fiebig bad the call
for the collector-ship in the republican
camp. He bails from the Fourth ward
where the republican machine revolves
on its axis in a never-ceasing whirl.
When the Fourth ward republicans got
"sot" in a certain direction, they gener
ally "get there." This ia meant as a
gentle bint to the hundred or two other
candidates for this plum, that Fiebig is
about to collar the swa.
The house of representatives of Illi
nois yesterday passed Crawford's stock
yard bill by a vote of 08 to 27. The Alt
ars printed the provisions of the bill at
the time of its introduction, which makes
considerable reduction in the price ot
slaughtering at the Union stock yards
near Chicago. It has taken Bro. Craw
ford a good while to get to the front, but
the Arqds takes pleasure in noting the
fact that be has finally "got thar."
Hamper's VTetk'y, which, for a quarter
of a century, was the most influential or
gan of the republican party, has this com
mendation of the late democratic admin
istration: "It has demonstrated the fact
that while the democratic party counts
nearly as many adherens as the republi
can, it is not a revolutionary party, and
that the union and the government are
perfectly safe under democratic ascend
ency. After a prolonged civil convul
sion, with all tbe changes wrought by it,
this Is a result of immense significance.
It has taken from our political contro
versies tbe unreasonable apprehension
that the success of a party embracing half
of the people threatens the existence of
the government Itself and has thus tended
effectively to restore the political conten
tions of the country to their normal con
ditions. Still further, these four years
have shown the advantage of a vigorous
personality in tbe presidency, the ability
to resist the strongest tendency of the
government by party, which is toward
the practical annihilation of executive

Pater and Mater Aubery Interviewed
The Chief Jostlo Declines to Talk,
but Mrs. Fuller's Heart and Arms Are)
Open to the Young Wife.
CniCAOO, Mar;h 21. The news contained
In the telegram in tbose disiiatehes yesterday
reporting tbe elojieiiieiit and marriage of
Miss Paulina Fuller, tha 19-year-old daughter
of Chief Justice Fuller, of the United States
supreme court, to Mr. J. Matt Aubery, only
ion of J. M. Aubery, of this city, created a
eoiuiuotion in society circles in tbia city
TOl'NO A f BERT'S BRIDK.
which has nut been equalled in a long time.
The young couple are now at tha Plaukiiiton
housa, Milwaukee, where they will remain
for a time.
The romance began on Oet. 81, 1887, at the
home of Mi Fuller, where a Halloween
party was in progress. Among the guests
was young Aubrey, until then unknown
to the dashing brunette. Autre, who
is about 23 years old, of rather at
tractive appearance and withal a very inter
esting young gentleman, was presented to
Pauline. At tbe first contact of their glances
a spark of love flashed out which ended in
Tuesday's escapade. Their mutual admira
tion was noticed from the first, and, as neither
took paiDs to dixguise it, caused general com
ment. They were always to be seen together,
and every one iu the extensive circle of their
acquaintances looked upon a marriage as a
foregone conclusion. It subsequently trans
pired, wheu the tide of their love seemed at
the flood, that Pauline's mother entertained
serious objections to her daughter marrying
young Aubrey. It was not that there was
any personal objection to him, but Mrs. Ful
ler, with the natural disinclination to part
with her daughter, opposed the match.
V batever may have been the ground of
Mrs. Fuller's objections, however, It was
sufllcient to add new satisfaction to ber bus
band's elevation to the supreme bench of the
United States, as that necessitated removal
from Chicago, and it is said the lady hoped
that new scenes and new faces would obliter
ate the impression made upou her daughter's
TOUNQ AITBERT liUfnKI.V.
heart by young Aubery. Tbe chief Jus
tice himself is believed to have been not
averse to the match if It was bis daughter's
choice, of which there was no doubt, and
It was also said that Miss Pauline had a will
of ber own, and being of age had no hesita
tion in expressing it, and that will was to
marry ber lover, come what might.
Tbe pleasures of tbe capital did not
strange the affections of Pauline, and she
evidently didn't care much for the society ot
high official life, for on Jan. 1 she packed
her trunks and came to Chicago for a visit.
She went first to the home of William L.
Ogden, 40 Thirty-fifth street, whose daugh
ter Carrie is one of Pauline's intimate friends.
There she remained a month, and then went
to visit another chum, pretty Mamie Cos
sens, of 3,737 Langley avenue. With Miss
Cozaens she remained until March 1, when
she went to visit Hattie Smith, atb,011
Grand boulevard. On Sunday "last Pauline
announced that she intended to return to
Washington, and should leave at 5 o'clock
Wednesday afternoon on the Fort Wayne,
and asked several of her young friends to be
there and bid her good-bye. Tuesday morn
ing Pauline told the Smiths that she would
spend tbe afternoon with a friend on the
north aide, and expected to return to supper.
If she did not, however, the Smiths were not
to be alarmed, as she would have escort
home in' the evening.
Instead of going to the north side, Pauline
met young Aubery at Ountber's candy store,
and was driven by him to the Milwaukee &
St Paul station, where the afternoon train
was taken for the Cream -City. Arriving
there, they registered at the Kirby, remain
ing until 9 o'clock in the parlors. Young
Aubery then asked the clerk for direction to
a justice of the peace, and was referred to
Justice Gregory. The magistrate was visit
ed, and the wedding took place in short or
der as already related, his honor nut know
lng until afterward that he had been officiat
ing at the nuptials of a daughter of the chief
justice of the United States.
Mrs. J. Matt Aubery, Jr., nee Pauline Ful
ler, is tbe fifth daughter of Chief Justice
Fuller, and will be IV years old next June,
8he has always been conspicuous in the south
side circle bi which she has moved for her at
tractive presence, agreeable manners and vi
vacious deportment Neither of the words
blonde or brunette would exactly describe
her style of beauty. She is the posses-tor ef
regular features, a fair complexion, expres
sive eyes and mouth, and a figure that has
ever been the despair of her own sex and the
admiration of the opposite one. The young
lady is famous among her friends for ber
taste in dress, and ber striking toilets have
never failed to excite the wonder and ad
miration of those who have enjoyed tbe
privilege of a view of them.
J. Matt Aubery, Jr., is 23 years old. In
personal appearance he ia .not at all bad
looking, above medium height, erect, and
rather broad-shouldered. He has a smooth
face, framed with a copious growth of dark
hair. He has an interesting nose, of consid
erable prominence aad a large mouth. He is
what is known as a "lively bey," a member
of tbe Carleton club, and though not what is
called a popular fellow, is on very good terms
with everybody except Mrs. Fuller. In bis
business be is of good habits, and if he has
half a show will make a mark as well as a
name in the world.
Mr. Aubery pare was seen yesterday, and
said the event took his breath away not that
he did not know that bis son was badly "gone"
on Miss Fuller, bu , be had no idea the young
man would take such radical measures to
make sure of hist ride. He was in Milwau
kee himself Tue ay, but came home that
evening, and, of course, did aot know of the
presence of Matt and his sweetheart in the
"1 feel pretty bad about It," continued the
father. "He's my c nly son, and a good boy at
that, and we have teen very proud and fond of
him, hoping to kee him with ns a long time
yet. I regret the atf Mr more, however, because
of its sensational character. The objections
made to the marriage by Miss Fuller's parents
were by no means serious, aa I understood
it They merely thought their daughter
and my son too young to marry just
yet aad myself and wife thought so, too, and
we wanted the unlc a put off for a year or two,
but it seems the yc ung folks had a different
mind about it; at lst they are married, and
we've got to make the best of it Naturally,
I'm proud of the co inection. My son's wife is
not only the daughter of a good family, she is
a beautiful, accomplished, and amiable girl,
entirely suited In asteand ambition to my
boy, with whom she has chosen to cast her lot
Mrs. Aubery wat not less disturbed than
her husband. She had doubtless taken a
good, motherly cry over the escapade of her
boy, however, and was therefore rather more
resigned than her husband, who was any
thing but merry.
"Why, I never drt araed of this elopement,"
said Mrs. Aubery. -'It ia dreadful, and 1 don't
know what to say. But it really wasn't right
for my son to do U Is. It wasn't neo -ssary,
and it will mae Miw Fuller's parents feel so
much hurt that tlie marriage took place in
this Irregular way. I suppose they arranged
the matter sever: days ago. Any how,
they're married, and while I am proud of the
oholce my son has n ade she is awonderf oily
sweet ana loveable ifirl and wholly devoted to
him I am cbagrlnel that the union has been
consummated in a manner so out of the or
dinary and proper v ay."
The only communications so far received
by any one in this city direct from the inter
ested people were a telegram from Mrs. Au
bery, Jr., to a frier d briefly telling her to
have no anxiety on her account, and signed
"Mrs. Pauline Aubtry"; a telegram from the
young husband as follows: "I was married
to-night A letter to-morrow. Matt," and
the following received by W. M. Booth, of
the law firm of Booth, Gregory & Harlan,
from Chief Justice Fuller:
What do you know of Pauline's elopement?
Is It true r What cs n be done 7
M. W. Fuller.
A reply was sent closing with:
Nothlugcan be done unless by legal proceed
ing's. A. M. Booth.
A telegram from Milwaukee relates an in
terview with young Aubery, in which he said
that he and his afflaaced felt that Mrs. Ful
ler would never oonnt to the marriags, the
mother being ambitious for a more distin
guished match for bar daughter, and so they
concluded to take tie matter into their own
hands. He would stay in Milwaukee until
he heard from the chief justice, who had
been duly telegraph xi, and thought forgive
ness would not long be delayed. Said he:
"I have been receit iug congratulatory mes
sages all day. I ha1 one from my folks this
morning. They art, satisfied. No, I have
not heard from Waihington yet It is hard
"That looks bad, doesn't itr
"Oh, uo. I think it will be all right in
time," ami with this bit of philosophy the
husband edged diagonally across the corri
dor, where some on was waiting.
Mr. and Mrs. Aulery remained in their
room at Milwaukee most of yesterday. The
former has relatives there. He is a nephew
of "Doc" C. M. Aubery, a well-known resi
dent He knew nettling of the escapade
until he read the nev-s in tbe day's papers.
THE CHIEF JUSTICE AND WIFE.
They Are ProfounJIy Shocked, but Will
Welcome the Runaways.
Wasdinotojj Ch y, March 21. The re
port that Miss Pauline Fuller, daughter of
Chief Justice Fuller, had eloped reached the
capital about 1 o'clock yesterday, and pro
duced a profound sensation. Mrs. Fuller
was the first to brit g the news to the chief
justice. She came hurriedly in a carriage,
arriving after he bai taken his seat on the
supreme bench, and informed an attendant
of her desire to see h m. He withdrew from
the beuch and an Liter-view was bad. Of
course nothing is known as to the de
tails of the interview, and Mrs. Full
er withdrew from tbe capitol hastily
without speaking of tbe matter to anybody.
The chief justice risumed his seat on tbe
bench, and pursued his duties with a very
grave countenance. He has only spoken to
one or two of his olesest friends on the sub
ject, and they are entirely reticent, saying
in reply to questions that nothing can be
said about it
Mrs. Fuller made a brief statement last
evening. She said t Sat she was at a loss to
understand her daughter's conduct There
was no necessity for an elopement If she
had said ?he wanted to marry, there would
have been no oppos tiou. She and ber bus
band would be welcome at ber father's home.
Mrs. Fuller said further that her heart and
that of the chief just oe, and those of tbe fam
ily aa wall, were aa f ill of love for the daugh
ter as ever. Naught eould remove that. If
Mrs. Aubery (nee Fuller) could have seen her
mother and beard hsr when she said this she
would have supplicated her forgiveness. The
consideration shown the chief justice and his
family in this city on account of this news is
respeotf ully profound, and the general expres
sion is that whatever there is of a sensational
eharacter in the affidr may speedily disap
pear and be forgotten, and that tbe family,
which occupies the viiry pinnacle of social es
teem, may be united and happy.
Chief Justice Fuller refused to say anything
to any one yesterday regarding the affair.

Springfield, Ills., March 21. The senate
passed a bill yesterday providing for the re
moval of dams in the Illinois river. As this
will be necessary if tie Chicago drainage bill
peases, this action Is a point in favor of the lat
ter bilL By a vote of 12 to 18 Berry's anti
pool bill was rejected and a motion to recon
sider was later defea red 18 to 18. The gov
ernor's appointments were then con
firmed in executive session. Bills
repealing the act ceding locks and
dams in Illinois river, and requiring appli
cants for admisssion to the Soldiers' Home to
have resided two years in the state were
passed. During consideration of the general
appropriation bill fihumway objected to
$7,000 for the fish commission. He thought
it was very foolish t pay the fish commis
sioners so much money to put little fishes in
the streams of the sta and have them swim
down Into the Mississippi to feed the whole
country. The objection was in vain
Tbe house took tp the bill to regulate
charges at stock yard t, and about sixty peti
tions from granger ledges were read, asking
its passage. It posset 96 to 27. The reso
lution for an inves igatien of militia ex
penses then came -up, and the pending ques
tions when the house adjourned Tuesday
a motion to table a notion to indefinitely
postpone was decided in the negative. The
resolution was afterward referred. The bill
to prevent fraud in the sale-of lard was sent
to third reading. Tho firemens' pension fund
bill was passed, and n bill to permit dities
and counties to help support non-sectariao
hospitals, etc., was orlered to third reading.

There is a current report that the president
has requested tbe senators from several
states, including Illinois, to submit tbe names
of one or more persons from their respective
states from which be may select a .nominee
for the English mission. He did not make
this request in person, but he did it as cer
tainly as if it had come from his own lips.
It is said that the man whom he had "in

secretly urged the nomination of Mr. Reid
has declined with thanks on account of the
pressure of important private business which
he can not afford to neglect. Tbe ru

Washington Citt, March 21. Promoters

KNOCKED OUT BY A VOTE.
A Yale Professor's Vote for Cleveland Bars
Nw York, March 21. A special dis
patch from New Haven to Tha Times says:
The advisability of appointing Prof. Artbur
T. Hadley, of Yale, a member of the inter
state commission to succeed A. F Walker,
resigned, has been under oi moderation by
the administration at Washington, and a day
or two ago one of tbe leading managers of
the Republican party in New Haven, acting,
doubtless, under instructions, called upon tbe
professor to ascertain whether, at the last
election be voted for Mr. Harrison or Mr.
Cleveland. The professor answered that he
voted for Cleveland. Mr. Walker is a Re
publican. According to the intor-state commerce act
whenever there is a vacancy in tbe board
tbe candidate must come from the same po
litical party as that to which the retiring
member belonged. It is understood that
Mr. Hadley was a Republican until the nom
ination of Blaine in 16M4, but it is generally
believed that bis vote against Harrison wyj
be an insurmountable obstacle to his ap
pointment to succeed Mr. Walker, although
be has been strongly indorsed by tbe press of
New England. Neither be uor tbe gentle
man who called upon him has since heard a
wold as to tho administration's conclusions,
and this is regarded as indicating that Yale
is not to bo honored by this appointment

Detail of a Most Deliberate and
Newark, X. J., March 21. After Ferdi
nand Mutter, a milkman living on the road
between .Lyons Farms and lrringfon, had
left home yesterday morning to serve his
customers, Joseph Halzman, his hired man,
enticed three chillrn of the family into the
barn, tied their bunds and feet and buried
tbein in the hay, went to the house, attempt
ed to assault Mrs. Mutter and, on being doe
perately resisted, struck her on the head
with a hammer, rendering her unconscious.
Snlimnn then ransacked every trunk, box
and drawer in the bouse in search of money,
but overlooked a pocketboaJc containing ilho
and secured only a silver watch.
While he was thus engaged Mrs. Mutter re
gained consciousness, but fearing another at
tack, she lay still, feigning death. Saliruan
before leaving the house bent over her and
felt her face, and was apparently satisfied
that she was dead. He then went out Mrs.
Mutter, thinkingthat he was goneaway, stag
gered to the door, Intending to give the alarm.
Sal r man had not left tbe premises, and, on
aeeing him, Mrs. Mutter started to run, but
was overtaken and dragged into the barn by
Salzman, who there struck her twice on the
bead -with the hammer, and while she lay
senseless on tbe floor beat her with a club un
til it seemed certain that she was dead. He
then fled, and bas not yet been found.
Soon after he left one of tbe children roan
aged to crawl out from the . hay, and seeing
his mother lying covered with blood he ran
out and cried for help. A neighbor respond
ed, and Mrs. Mutter was carried into the
house and cared for, and the Children re
leased. The woman's skull is fractured iq
three places, aud she is not expected to live.
Mutter became crazed when he returned
home aud found his wife dying. He started
to this city, but instead of informins? the po
lice at headquarters, where be was advised to
go, he wandered about seeking Salzman in
various saloons, and this delay gave Salz
man a good start. Detectives are now search
ing in all directions for the murderer, who
is a Swiss, 24 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall,
with a sandy mustache and florid complex
ion. He came to this country on the steamer
Britannic last November.
