Milan ran so high that a mob visited Mr.
Frjsiaper's home ani he was forced to

afterward fined for assault . He has since
been collecting evidence, aad it is now

Sir 'William Gordon dimming Marries
Hi Faithful American Sweetheart.
London, June 11. Just at this time it
does not look as though the sequel to the
b-tccarat scandal would be the usual
thing. In spite of the adverse verdict,
Sir 'William Gordon Cummkig seems to
have no idea either of suicide or nn ol
acure residence on the continent. There is
no doubt that he has hosts of friends who
do not believe him guilty of the charge, in
spit of the evidence. And among those
friends was a, fair American girl, the
daughter of Commodoae Garner, of New
York, whose heart he had won so and held
so seourely that she will believe no ill of
him. As soon as the scandal was out Sir
William offered Mis Garner her Kberty,
end even nrged htr to take it.
True A Steel to Her Love.
He told her ths meaning of au adverse
verdict its effect on his social and pro
fessional relations -and leggel her to
look nt the matter carefully, at the same
time declaring that his love was as warm
as ever. She would not hear a word of
breaking oil the match. When the trial
was over he saw her again, and again ot
tered her her freedom. The reply was the
same: "Where thou goct I will go." So
yesterday they went to church, anil wheu
they emerged they were maa and wife. At
ID a. m. yesterday there was nothing in
the vicinity of Holy Trinity church to
indicate that the marriage of the cele
brated liaccarat plaintiff was about to
take place. So absolute h.-al been the se
crecy observe! that the outer gates of the
edillue were not even oiiened at that hour.
Presently the verger made his ap pearance

Arrival of Ifcirie anil Groom.
Almost immediately thereafter a cab ar

Gordon dimming and hi best man, Maj.
Yesey Dawson, of the Coldstream Guards.
Hoth gentlemen at once entered the
church, and walked rapidly into the aisle
adjoining the morning chapel, wherein it
had lieen arranged the ceremonies should
ocenr. Shortly after this- two or three
ladies entered. They were siiti followed
by Miss Garner, accoin;enied by Lord and
lnly Middletou and a young lady sup
posed to 1 the bride's sister, all of whom
were conducted np the aisle by the verger.
The bride wa plainly drel in a walking

a black straw hat and aried her gloves
in her hand. Sir William advanced to

There were no bridesmaids, and Lady
Middieton aru-d as charter-one to the bride.
The rejunses were both clear and audible,
and when the bride placed her hand in
that of the groom she did so with a win
ning smile. She seemed jierfccily happy
nnd content. After the conclusion of the
luarriage ceremony both man and wife
knelt iu prayer at the altar. Then Sir
William, giving his arm to the bride and
followed by the few guests present, pro
ceeded to the vestry, where the register
was signed by the principals and others of
the party. Carriages were then entered
