411 Intention on the Part of the Church to
Combine Church and State or to "Con
trol the Political Action of Church Offi
cials Is Disavowed, Yet Church Ofliflals
are Warned That Xhelr First Duty Is to
the Church and They'd Better Not Un
dertake to Hold Down Too Many Jobs
at Once.,
Salt Lake City. Utah, April 6 The
Desert Xews today publishes a three
column address to the members and of
ficers of the church of Jesus Christ of
Latter Day Saints in congress assambl
ed. The address is on the conference
of the church and state and is signed
by "Wilford Ruff, George Q. Cannon and
Joseph Smrth, son of the first president,
John Smith, patriarch, eleven of the
twelve apostles, seven members of the
first council of the seventies and the
three presiding bishops, composing all
the high officials of the Mormon church.
The address says that during the, last
political excitement the presiding offi
cers "were in some cases misunderstood
and in others misrepresented. Continu
ing, the address says, in part:
"We -wish to state in the most positive
language that at no time hast here been
an attempt or even a desire to encroacn
upon the rights of the state. There
has not "been, nor is there the remostest,
desire on our part to do anything look
ing -to a union of church and state.
"In view of the occurrences to which
reference has been made, we feel it our
duty to clearly define our position, so
there may be no cause hereafter for dis
pute. ""We unanimously agree to and pro
mulgate as a rule that should always
be observed In iflie church and by every
leading official thereof, that before ac
cepting any position, political or other
wise, which would interefere with the
proper and complete discharge of his ec
clesiastical duties, and before accepting
a nomination or entering Into engage
ments to perform new duties, said offi
cial should apply to proper authorities
and learn from them whether he can,
consistently with the obligations al
ready entered into "with the churoh up
on assuming hia office, take upon him
Belf the added duties and labors and re
sponsibilities of the new position. To
maintain proper discipline and order in
the church we deem this absolutely
necessary, and in asserting this rule,
we do not consider that we are infring
ing in the least degree upon the indi
vidual rights of the citizens.
"We declare that In making these re
quirements of ourselves and our breth
ren in the ministry wedo not in the least
desire to dictate to them concerning
their duties as American citizens or to
interfere with the affairs of the state."
A significant feature of the address is
that it does not show the name of Mr.
Moses Thatcher, one of the twelve apos
tles. Last year Moses Thatcher accept
ed the nomination for United States
senator on the Democratic ticket -without
consent of the church authorities
and strongly maintained the view that
the church had no authority over his per
sonal actions regarding politics.

Happily Ever After.
New York, April 6. An attachment
which, it is claimed by those in a
position to know, had fits origin in the
White House, culminated today in the
marriage at the Protestant Episcopal
church of St. Thomas of Uenjamin Har
rison, ex-president of the "United States

tracting parties, the wedding was a
quiet one. only the immediate relatives
and friends of the two families, to a to
tal of about thirty, being Invited. A
great crowd of people, however, assem
bled about the edifice. The bride-elect,
who reached the church in advance of
the ex-president, entered almost unob
served, by the vestry door. The groom
elect, accompanied by Colonel Daniel
M. Ramsdell and his private secretary,
E. F. Tibetts. arrived about ten min
utes later. The Easter Sunday floral
decorations of the altar and chancel
had not been removed and a liberal ad
dition of fresh cut flowers gave the
sanctuary the appearance of a floral
As the bride, escorted by her brother-in-law,
Lieuetnant J. F. Parker of the
United States cruiser New York, walk
ed down the aisle, the ex-president, ac
cording to Episcopal usage, emerged
from the vestry and awaited her at the
altar rail. The bride's gown was of
gray brocaded satin with full front
corsage of ivory satin and rovers, elab
orately adorned with Duchesse lace.
In her right hand she carried an ivory
covered prayer book and a large bunch
of lilacs.
The wedding office of the Eniscopal
church was read by the Rev. Dr. John

poses and sajs: That for about three

can grow hair on bald heads. "Why?
Simply because you have never seen it
done, or because, perhaps, you have
been deceived time and time again by
other (so-called) restorers. Mr. Bush,

his military secretary
After the benediction had been pro
nounced and the couple and witnesses
had signed their names in the vestry
book, they "were driven to the Parker
residence at 40 East Thirty-eighth
street where a small reception, followed
by a wedding dinner was given.
There was a large crowd around the
church, which kept gathering after the
bridal party had entered the church.
Captain Steinkemp and seventy-five
men kept the avenue clear for car
riages. There was no block or unusual
rush at any time.
Immediately after the bridal party
left the church the crowd dispersed.
At 7 o'clock General Harrison and his
hride left the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Pincbote In Graraercy park and entered
a closed carriage. In a second carriage
were Lieutenant and Mrs. Parker and
General Tracey, and in the third car
riage Mrs. Harrison's maid. Daniel
Ramsdell and E. F. Tibbett had left tor
the Pennsylvania depot immediately on
leaving the church to prepare for the
arrival of the bridal party. At 7:20
o'clock the party arrived at Des Brasses
street and were driven Immediately on
board the ferry, which pulled out soon
after for the depot. On the arrival of
the party at the depot they were con
ducted to President Thomson's private
car, which had been placed at General
Harrison s disposal.
The train started at S:02 p. m., and is
expected to arrive at Indianapolis at
10:15 tomorrow night.
The bride of today is a beautiful wo
man and in the prime of life. She is the
daughter of Russell F. Lord, who was
general superintendent and chief en
gineer of the Delaware and Hudson
Canal company, and who died during
the war. In 1SS1 she was married to
Benjamin E. Dimmlck, son of Samuel
E. Dimmlck, ex-attorney general of
Pennsylvania and one of the most
prominent lawyers of the state. Three
months after his marriage, however,
Mr. Dimmick died of typhoid fever. For
years his widow who was left with an
ample estate was heartbroken and it
was not until the Illness of Mrs. Harri
son during the closing months of the
president's administration, that she
again appeared in public. During that
sorrowful period and after the death of
the first lady of the land, she did the
honors of the White House, and it was
at this time that the romance that cul
minated today had its beginning.
Ex-President Harrison is 63 years, of
age, or some twenty-eight years the
senior of his second wife.
Indianapolis, April 6. General Har
rison's children, Mrs. McKee and Rus
sell B. Harrison, did not start to New
York yesterday to attend their father's
wedding. There is no estrangement
between father and children, but the
son. and daughter decided not to wit
ness the ceremony.
Philadelphia, April 6. The train
bearing Mr and Mrs. Harrison arrived
here at 10:06 tonight. The bridal party
occupied a special car. A crowd of
about 1,000 braved the rain and gather
ed about the car. The ex-president
appeared on the platform while the
bride stood in the doorway. After
they had hidden good-bye to Lieutenant
and Mrs. Parker, who left the train at
this point, the groom lifted his hat sev
eral times in response to the cheers of
the crowd. He and his bride then re
entered the ear and the train left for

London, Eng., April 7. The Daily
News and the Chronicle have a report
from Constantinople, said to be on the
best authority, that an imperial Irade
has decreed the wholesale explusion of
all Christian missionaries from Armen
ia, who are mainly French Catholics
and American Protestants. It is still
possible, sal's this report, by Immediate J
pressure, to prevent the execution of the
decree, but no time is to be lost.
The Daily News says: There is rea
son to believe that .the Sultan has sign
ed this decree but tha't it has not yet
been issued. It is Lord Salisbury's
obvious duty to leave no diplomatic
stone unturned to prevent the threaten
ed disaster. No doubt Mr. Riddle, (the
United States charged' affaires) will act
with energy.
The Chronicle thinks the irade is aim
ed at the agents of the relief fund, and
is due to the fact 'that the missionaries
give publicly to the massacres, The
Chronicle believes that Lord Salisbury
could count upon Prench as well as
American support in demanding the
withdrawal of the irade.

olic mission at Orfa declares that 8,000
Armenians have been massacred there

All Europe has, la turn, accepted this
assurance as proof of England's sym

Germany showed appreciation of this
fact by voting with Italy and Austria
to assist England's war with the khalif.
France and Russia, on the contrary, are
ablaze with hostile indignation against
England because of this movement.
"From all this, the importance of an
Anglo-Spanish alliance to Great Britain
is obvious. Neither Gibraltar nor
Malta. England's only two ports on the
Mediterranean, is capable of either har
boring or refitting a fleet, but with both
the Italian and Spanish ports thrown
open to the British navy, the French
fleet at Toulon would be at England's
mercy, and Russia could hardly make
a junction from the Black sea with the
ships of her French ally. Such are the
apparent reasons why Great Britain
should wish to make 6uch an alliance.
It would, however, leave her in safe
possession of Gibraltar."

How a California Gang- Planned to Capture
Cornelius Vuudcrbilt.
San Francisco, April 6. Geo. E. Gard,
late chief of the Southern Pacific com
pany's detective force, has made public
a plot to kidnap Cornelius Vanderbilt,
which for boldness rivals anything ever
attempted on the Pacific coast. At least
Gard states that he received a letter
from one of the conspirators, who were
making San Francisco their base of op
erations. "The letter," says Gard,
"was the most startling epistle I ever
received, but I am convinced of its
genuineness for I know the person that
wrote it, well, as to his history and po
sition." The conspirators agreed to hold up
Vanderbilfs special train at some point
In the San Joaquin valley and make the
best haul possible. If no money was to
be had any ofherrway Cornelius Vander
bilt was to foe kidnaped and every one
else in the party to be killed if necessa
ry in accomplishment of the end in
view. The point decided on is an ideal
one and the train ordinarily would
pass through at night. A daylight
run was made and thwarted the gang.
In the Vanderbilt party were Chauncey
M. Depew and others. They left for
the east last night. Detectives, with
the aid of the man who wrote the letter
are running down the guilty parties.
San Francisco, April 6. The offlcials
of the Southern Pacific railway say they
know nothing of the alleged plot to hold
the train upon which Chauncey Depow
and Cornelius Vanderbilt were riding
last week and abduct Mr. Vanderbilt.
The story was printed in this city and
an interview was given with Detective
Gard, formerly in the employ of the
Southern Pacific, who said the plot had
been revealed to him by a man who at
nm intended to participate in the crime
Detective Gard Is well known in Cali
fornia and his reputation for veracity
has never been questioned.

Chicago Tribune Is Afraid It Will Have to
Eat McKluley Crow.
Chicago, April 4. The Chicago Trib
une, a bitter enemy of McKinley's.
which has "been fighting him because of
his friendliness to silver has calmed
down. The Tribune saw a dish of crow
ahead. This morning it apologizes as
"The Tribune prints as part of the
news of the day what the supporters
of other presidential candidates have
to say about Governor ilcKlnley's fin
ancial record, but it does not share
the apprehensions which some of the
advocates of other candidates say they
entertain when they peruse that record.
"The Tribune wants to be fair and
therefore it must say that Governor
McKinley has been just and sound on
the financial question as his party has
been. He has kept in line with "it all
the time and he is sound enough now
to satisfy as exacting a man as Senator
Sherman, and that Indorsement should
satisfy every reasonable Republican.
If nominated and elected we have no
fear whatever of hi3 going astray on
the financial question.
"It is true his party convention in
Ohio adopted a platform which i3 re
garded by many as something of a
straddle. Probably it was only the ex
pedient of a politician anxious to get
delegates from free silver states. But
when the platform Is made at St. Louis
it will be so explicitly for sound money
that nobody can misunderstand It.
Whoever is nominated will have to ac
cept it and to stand squarely on it.
However equivocal the utterances of
some of his upoprters may be now,
when the silver states have not elected
delegates, they will cease to be so if he
gets the nomination.
No supoprter of McKinley can expect
to please the silver mining states and
please New York at the same time. But
to be elected lie must have the latter
and the other sound money Republican
states. Therefore if McKInly Is nomi
nated all his friends will at once and
i-uminuaiiy assure sound money men
everywhere that he is as sound as the
"The Tribune wants to be understood
as having full confidence in Governor
fMcKinley's financial record. It Is gen
erally the same as that of this paper.
For the last twenty years It has stood
about where SIcKinley has stood. He
votea to pass the Allison bill over Pres
ident Haye's veto land the Tribune
stood with him. No man could have
predicted then that silver would con
tinue to fall in spite of the efforts to
hold it up. So who can justly find
fault with that part of McKinley's
"It was generally -believed that the
more extensive use of silver contemplat
ed would' increase the demand and
check the tendency to fall In price, es
pecially If an international agreement
could be secured for the general remon
etizatlon of silver.
Twenty years have elapsed since
then. Extensive silver purchases by
tnis country have not had the expected
effect, and the hope of an international
agreement has become weak and remote
Consequently men who were strong ad
vocats of free silver two decades ago
have become convinced-that it is hope
less at present to expect that any leg
islation on the part of this country
can make sixteen ounces of silver worth
one of gold.
"What they said or did in 1S7S is a
matter of no consequence. They do
nt believe now that unlimited silver
dollars containing 371VJ grains of sliver
being on 50 cents' worth of that metal,
can be kept at par by the legislative
fiat. There is no school like that of
experience, and both the Tribune ami
Governor McKinley have attended it."
The Inter-Ocean, a McKinley paper,
taunts the Tribune as follows:
The Chicago Tribune Is at it again.
It wants to beat McKinley for presi
dent, but every effort it makes to ac
complish its purpose places the Buckeye
Governor nearer the hearts of the vot
ers and increases their enthusiasm for
him. Only a little while ago. In hot
word?, the Tribune declared that Mc
Kinley would nevr do for a candidate
because he was too high a protection
ist, when the phout came back from all
over the country: "That's why we
like him. and that's why we want him."
Discomfited In that attack, the ven
erable editor of the Tribune now coin
back wtth the sinister Inquiry. "Is Mc
Kinley for free silver?" and follow! op
the question by giving the governor?
record in congress oa the silver ques
tion which really ebows that be was
In happy accord with a great majority
of the Republican party on that aa wH
as on other great queatioos. Ta troth
la. the more the editor of the Trlbooe
attacks Governor McKinley from the
high horse of anti-protection and tb-siagle-old
standard (both of wbicb
the editor seems to bold jest as close
ia his heart aa be dare, and stay In fh

will be aid Governor McKialay tt reacb

these questions Governor McKinley
was not only with ta r&mt Majority
of the Republican party, bat be showed
himself to be moving In cloee contact
with the general pebfic seattmest ot ta

hed oes McKinley, whom he desires to
injure. The fact is that Loth Govern
or McKinley and Speaker Reed are bi
metalllata. This is fehown by their rec
ords, which are consistently In harmony
with the Republican platforms, which
have always been bimetallic
The records too, of both gentlemen,
have been consistent with their pres
ent positions. The same oannot be said
of the record of Mr. Medlll. It Is within
the memory of all persons of mature
years that at one time he was one of
the most unreasonable shouters for the
"dollar of the daddies" In the we?t.That
was back in 1S78-79, before he hnd be

when he develops from a borrower Into
a money-loaner from an Interest payer
Into a coupon clipper. Statesmen sel
dom make that kind of development,
and can. consequently, stand by their
recors. The real friends of the candi

serve should call him off. Ills blun
