New York, April 17. Special Tele
graphic Letter. The sensation in Brook
lyn's most aristocratic society is the run
sway marriage of Clarence Rice -Slocum,
eon of General Henry "XV. Siocnm, the fa
mous old war horse,
and Miss Annie
Louise Boyle, at the
The marriage oc
curred several days
ago, but had not been
generally known un
til Saturday. The
young conple went to
the tabernacle just as
Dr. Talmage was
about to begin ser
vice and asked to be
married. The bride's mother and sister
were present and everything was regular
and it did not occur to Dr. Talmage that
the young man was General Slocum's son
until after the knot was tied. Then he
asked for information and receiving it
looked thoughtful. It then struck him as
very odd that the general, who lives only a
few blocks away, was not present.
Tbe General Presents a Warlike Front.
It is said that Mr. and Mrs. Clarence
Bice Slocum went to 465 Clinton avenue,
where the groom's father lives. They
pulled the doorbell and timidly announced
themselves. The general is an old soldier,
and knows how to express what is called
righteous indignation. If thestory is true,
he looked hard at Clarence and Mrs.
Clarence and tbeji told them that the
bouse was full and that lodgings for the
night would have to be procurred at some
neighboring hotel. The couple went away
and are not residing on Clinton avenn&.
The gentleman is alleged to be deeply of
fended at his son's conduct, and there is a
rumor that he passed some criticism on
Cannot Identify the Bride.
Who Miss Annie Louise Boyle or ber
mother of her sister is, nobody seems to
know. - An investigation of numerous
Boyle families in Brookly failed to discover
any trafces of persons who claimed relation
ship by marriage to General Slocum.
There is a rumor that Miss Boyle belongs
In New York, and that young Slocum met
her while at business. A
Arrival of Columbus' Descendants.
The duke of Veragua, lineal descendant
of Columbus, arrived here Saturday on
the New York, with the duchess, their
sons and the MarqaU and Marquise Bar
boles, who are also descendants of the
great discoverer. They were met on the
vessel by a reception committee and es-:
corted to-Hotel 'Waldorf where they will
stay until their departure en route to Chi
cago this week. Saturday night they were
presented with the freedom of the city by
Mayor Silroy and a committee of citizens.
Felicitous speeches were exchanged. The
Spanish-American colony made a raid on
the Waldorf Saturday night and gave their
compatriots a warm welcome.with the help
of the Seventeenth regiment band, which
played Spanish 'airs. Yesterday the duke
and party, like good Roman Catholics,
went twchurch, where the priest gave them
a welcome in his sermon.
Can Get Nothing Out of Sbeehan.
Lieutenant Governor Sheehan arrived in
this city yesterday from Washing ton, 'where
he went Friday afternoon to have a talk
with President Cleveland, along with Sen
ator Murphy. The lieutenant governor
said that Senator Murphy and himself had
a most full and satisfactory conference
with the president, yet he declined to state
the object of their call upon the chief execu
tive. Of Cleveland the committeeman said:
"He was not half as savage as some people
TROUBLE IN -THE UNION LEAGUE.
A Young Hebrew Blackballed True In
wartlneu of the Action.
The blackballing of young Seligman, son
of the wealthy Jewish banker by the
Union League has caused more comment
in club circles than any similar event in
the past decade. The element which work
ed against the election of young Seligman
is almost universally condemned. A new
phase of the case has just been promulgated
by a club man. To use t his gentleman '6
language: "It was a question of race and
religion. It was the outgrowth, though,
of a movement which has been on foot in
the club, and has been gaining force too,
for some time.
"Everybody knows that the Union League
club was founded' and has maintained
standing as a Republican organization,.
The Republican party has drawn on it for
brains and money. It has been a Republi
can mouthpiece, too. The ttuth of it all is
that tbe younger element in the club,
which rejected him, has a notion of turn
ing the American eagle and the time-honored
constitution altogether out of the
clubhouse." Which means that they want
to make it a social club purely politics ta
booed, but it seems not race or religion.
The Noise of That Great Salute.

David W. Bruce, worth over $4,000,000,
who his friends claim is an object of pity
more than censure, was arrested by the
police with nine girls in a room in this city.
All were nude and the girls were posing
around the room in graceful positions
when the police broke in. Bruce is old and
feeble. It has been developed since the

To Make the World's Fair a Success tTn
cle Sam's Mite.
Chicago, Aprill 17. Twelve of the'trunk
line railways having termini in Chicago
have just subscribed for practically the
last $1,000,000 worth of the $5,000,000 of
bonds issued by tbe exposition company to
finish the work of building the fair. By
the action of the railroads all the shoals
and shallow places in the matter of financ
ing the exposition have been passed. When
efforts were made three years ago to raise
15,000,000 by subscriptions these same
twelve railways came forward and sub
scribed f530,0t0 worth of stock. Next,
when the Exposition company could look
to no other source for money it asked
these roads to subscribe for bonds equal
to double the amount of their stock sub
scriptions. This was done in every instance
It is a notable fact that in the financing
of the exposition nearly all the funds have
come from Chicago or corporations doing
business in this city; $.500,000 have been
subscribed bere in capital stock; $5,000,000
were given by the city of Chicago; when it
became necessary to put $5,000,000 worth of
bonds on the market forty-four Chicago
banks subscribed for $2.8 1-1,000 of the lssif?;
private citizens took nearly $1,300,000, and
twelve railroads with terminals here took
another $1,000,000, making practically $15,
300,000 raised in Chicago. The government
has contributed .',500,000. . 4
