Haitien Marries a
Virginia White Girl
Baltimore, Md„ Oct. 1.—Mary
land’s law against the marrying of
persons of Negro and Caucasian de
scent evidently does not apply to for
eigners. This is evidenced by the fact
that Maurice Menos, son of Solon
Menos, the Haitien minister to the
United States, was married in Balti
more to Miss Lillian Burgess, of Cul
pepper, Va.. but recently attending a
business college in Washington,
where she met young Menos.
Menos is 26 years old, and is secre
tary of the Haitien legation, going to
Washington a year ago from Paris,
where he held a minor post.
The marriage was performed Fri
day, September 17, by the Itev. J. M.
Wallace, pastor of the Aisquith Street
Presbyterian chufcli, an influential
white minister. Mrs. Apted, an aunt,
and Mrs. Joseph Janis, a sister, ac
companied Miss Burgess from Wash
ington to Baltimore and witnessed the
ceremony. Luncheon was bad at the
Belvedere, the leading hotel in the
exclusive residential district, after
which young Menos and his bride left
for New York.
The Haitien minister was not aware
of his son's intention, and had not
heard of the ceremony until ques
tioned by reporters.

degree and a short while ago con
ferred upon him the degree of doctor
of laws. While at Knox, one of his
fellow students, who was also work
ing his way through, was R. W. Free
man, the oldest colored letter carrier
on the Omaha force. Subsequently
Mr. Kennedy graduated from the
state university of Iowa with the de
gree of bachelor of law. He came at
once to Omaha. That was in 1882,
thirty-three years ago. He had the
usual trials of the average young law
yer. Pluck, path nee and persistence
Nine years ago he represented the
Second Nebraska district for two
years in congress. Mr. Hitchcock,
whom he expects to defeat in the next
senatorial election, defeated him for
congress. He' was chairman of the
republican state committee in 1911
and served as a member of the board
of fire and police commissioners of
Omaha for a number of years. Mr.
Kennedy is a member of the Presby
terian church and a trustee of Belle
vue college.
Early in July Mr. Kennedy, than
whom there is no better qualified man
in the state, announced his candi
dacy for the senatorial toga. The
nominations are to be made at the
primaries in the spring. The election
follows in the autumn. Nebraska
elects her senators by the direct vote
of the people. At the primaries and
at the subsequent elections of Novem
ber, the colored voters—who in na
tional politics are republican—will
undoubtedly support, almost unani
mously, the man whom they believe
from his fair-mindedness and love of
justice for all men, will do all in his
power to insure to them, so far as
legislation can effect it, not special
privileges, but that equality of oppor
tunity and all civic rights and privi
leges, untrammelled by repressive
and discriminatory laws, to which
they are justly entitled as American
citizens. That man is the Hon. John
Lauderdale Kennedy.
