An Elopement That PUln't Occur Another
Karl H. Kurb and MissMyrcella
Campbell were united in marriage at
St. Joseph parsonage last evening by
Rev. Father Mackin.
In this simple announcement there
is nothing remarkably strange, but
from events that have transpired
within the past few days, they no
doubt fully realize the fact that "the
course of true love never did run
smooth." For some time past the
young people have been possessed of
that one absorbing idea that tney
had been intended for each other, but
objections being raised by Miss
Campbell s family on account of re
ligious reasons, the happy termina
tion of their little romance had never
been consummated. They had
waited patiently for the day when
the srirl's folks would no longer ob
ject to the union, but like the letter,
it never came.

ROMANCE AND REALITY.
Concluded to Klope.
A few days ago the young people
decided that the only thing that re
mained for them to do was to elope,
and they accordingly laid their plans
that way. Everything was gotten in
readiness, but on the evening that
Miss Campbell left her home on her
romantic trip she was shadowed bv
members of her family and when she
met her lover the pair were immedi
ately intercepted and persuade) to
return home upon me representation
that if the father's consent w as asked
everything would probably be all
rirrht. This the ardent youth did on
the following day. but was met with
a -tl-it refusal in no unmistakable
terms. 1 hen the couple procured a
special dispensation from Bishop
Spauldin"-, of Peoria, to be married
and were wedded as stated, afterward
going to the parental home on Elev
enth "street, where the event was cel
ebrated. They left last night for Du
buque on a wedding trip. The mar
riage occurred while the father.
James Campbell, was at work last
night, and when he came home this
morning and found that he had not
been let into the secret until it was
all over, he started in to break up
housekeeping. A lively time about
the Campbell domicile ensued and
when Campbell, who takes pride in
calling himself the '-east iron man."

The Request of Physicians to Have the Fu
neral Ceremonies Suspended Creates a
Sensation Brothers of the Deceased
Fear That All Was Not RightsThe Coro
ner Allows the Funeral to Proceed but
the Hody Will Probably be Exhumed.
Considerable of a sensation was
stirred up in the city late yester
day afternoon, growing out of the
fact that two well known physicians
had sought to have the funeral of
the late William E. Wynes interfered
with until a post mortem examina
tion could he made to satisfy reports
that had become current to the ef
fect that he had not died from nat
ural causes. Drs. C. Truesdale and
J. F. Myers called on Coroner David
Hawes about 1:15 yesterday after
noon and asked that the latter order
a stay of the funeral ceremonies un
til a post mortem exaniinat ion could
No Interference With the Funeral.
Owing to the fact that it was so
near the funeral hour and also that
the wife of deceased and her mother
had signilied their intent ions of stren
uously objecting to any such proceed
ings, the coroner concluded not to
interfere with the funeral arrange
ments. He. -however, advised the
physicians that if it was necessary
lie would issue an order to have the
body exhumed and in this way any
scene that might ensue from an in
terference with the funeral could be
'avoided. It was thereupon agreed to
allow the matter to rest until later
ami the funeral occurred at the hour
Why An Kxaiiiiiia ion is Desired.
The facts that led up to the action
of the doctors in w ishing the coroner
lo order an investigation are of a
somewhat sensational character and
are understood to emanate from the
brothers of t lie deceased, who have
not been satisfied in their own minds
astothe real -cause of his death.
Dr. Truesdale hail the casein charge.
Drs. Bernhardt and Meyers being
called in for consultation. At that
time peritonitis symptoms had de
veloped and it was from this that h
died. 1 he brothers of Mr. Wynes. as
stated, were not satistied as to
what had led up to his death
and freely expressed themselves as
i feeling t hat wav. Their convictions
were strengthened in this from tin
fact that Mr. Wvnes had told them
himself as thev claim that he had
suspicions that his sickness was not
due to natural causes. Inmediatcly
after his death there was talk ot a
post mortem, that being advised by
the attending physicians in order
that everyone might be better satis
fied and the cause of his death estab
lished beyond a doubt. Mrs. Wynes
however, was strongly opposed to
any such measures, as washer moth
er. Slay Yet le F.xhmiied.
In deference to the wishes of the
widow no stringent measures were
taken, but the doctors still feel that
an examination should be made, and
it is not at all improbable that an or
der will be issued by Coroner Hawes
to exhume the body so that an exam
ination can be made.
It is understood that formal appli
cation is to be made to the coroner
for the postmortem yet t his evening.
