ONE STRANGE MARRIAGE.
It Was Dissolved by the Familiar Methods of the Divorce Court. Mary McKinney Respected and Would be a Sister to Oharley Reed. But He Got a Gan, and UndertFoar of Death She rromptly Married Him. WVAenoToON, Aug. 3.-Tl'he strangest mar riage a divorce court was ever called upon to dissolve was recently annulled by a de oree of Justice Hagner, of the supreme court of the District of Columbia. Mary Stuart MeKenney,who was "wedded yet no wife." was granted a divorce from Oharles E. Reed, with permission to resume her maiden name. Her ground of com plaint was that she had been "married by force," almost at the point of the pistol, in fact, and that she had never sustained the relation of wife to the would-be husband. Mary MeKinney is about twenty-four years old. She can hardly remember her father, who died when she was very young, and her mother has long been an invalid: so for years Mary has had no one to lean upon and no one to whom to apnoal for advice and assistance. She was one of the first clerks appointed by Supt. Porter to assist in the census work. One of the first acquaintances she made in the census bureau was Charles Ed.vin Reed, a good-looking fellow, who was regarded as an excellent clerk. The young people worked side by side for sev oral months and a close intimacy grew up between them. After Superintendent Por ter assigned them both to night work Reed was in the habit of escorting Miss MoKin ney to her home in the early morning hours. Reed was politely attentive, but never ob trusive. As the days went by she noticed a slight change in his demeanor, but she is quite sare she was totally unprepared to reoive from him a declaration of love and an offer of marriage. It was the old story; she respected him and would be a sister to him, but she really could not love him. Reed did not shed tears over his rejection. He told her very coolly, but with quiet emphasis, that he wanted her to be his wife, not his sister, arid ended by de claring his firm conviction that sooner or later she would change her mind and marry him. He was in no hurry, he said, and he could wait. Mary did not know what to make of Reed's conduct. bhe had expected to see him either angry or tearful. This cool, un moved determination frightened her, but she contented herself with forbidding him to call upon her, and avoided him as much as possible when engaged in her daily task. But Reed was not to be shaken off so eas ily. He intercepted her at every opportun ity, and even risked being handed over to the police in order to have a few words with her. On her way to and from the bureau he would wait for her at quiet corners, and always with the urgent request that she re consider her determination. Her fear of him soon increased to positive terror, for, besides declaring that he would surely marry her some day, he warned her that he would kill her before she should wed an other. About the first of last November Miss McKinney resigned from the census bureau. In giving up her wo-k she believed she had also got rid of her importunate suitor. One day, towe'er, she went to the bureau to get something she had left there, and upon leaving the building she was met by Reed, who drew her into a corridor and, telling her that he had a revolver in his pocket, de clared that he would kill her at once unless she would consent to marry him. She says that, looking at his determined face and into his glittering eyes, she believed he would carry out his threat. He went on to tell her how easily they could be married without anyone knowing of the affair. They would not live together until she had learned to love him, but, once married, he would feel sure of her and certain that she could not marry another. With the fear of death thus before her, she consented, and obeying his instructions met him within an hour and they were mar ried the same afternoon by the Rev. Asbury R. Reilly, the colored pastor of Grace M. E. church. Reed had secured the help of Justice of the Pence O'Neil, who got a li cense for him and kept it out of the record for a few days, so that it would not get into the newspapere. Buta wideawake local re porter found the blank in the record, and when it was filled up he printed the notice of the marriage. For two days Reed had kept his promise not to claim Mary McKinney as his wife. the had gone home, and, with the fear of her eccentric husband strong upon her, she had said nothing to her mother of the mar riage, but when the marriage was published Reed wrote his wife, pointing to the fact that their secret had been divulged and urging that she acknowledge him as her husband and live with him. She replied in a curt note, refusing his plea, and declining even to grant him an interview. Reed followed his first letter with' others, and the girl, almost frantic with fear, consulted an old family friend, David A. McKnight, a well-known lawyer. MeKnight sent a peremptory message to Reed to call on him. Reed came promnotly. and told his story without the slightest hesitation. He admitted everythingir that Miss McKinney had said, but saBid he loved the girl passionately and had no thougilt of injuring he,. lie was sure she would in time return his love alnd they would be very happy. He wanted his wife to live with him, and pleaded for an interview so that he might persuade her. 'The lawyer concluded that it would be FIRST BAY'S SALES AMOUNTEB TO $9,450. * " Contracts Made for the Erection of a 30-Room Hotel and a General Store.

For Information Call on JAS. P. PORTER, Power Block, Helena beat for the yola woman to acknowledge Haeed aas he oblnd, and he arranged a itervie tween them. Re kept .itWin hear stanoe in an adjoin Iag room. In respense to her ue band's pleadints the girl burst into years and finally suffered an attack of bys terica. Reed, Lawyer McKnight sayrs watched her sufferings with pedect com reosre, with not a trace of pity apparent in his strong, pale face. She was his wife, he said, and he could wait till she learned to love him. After the youa people had separated, McKnight told Mary's mother the whole story. Mrs. MeKinney declared that the marriage must be annulled without delay. Then a curious revelation was made. Mary produced a paper, signed by Reed, which she said he had given her two days after their marriage. It read as follows: I will state that I forced Mary B. Mc Kinney. by threats, to marry me, on the condition that it should bhe kept sescret. The marriage license has been published in the papers, therefore I make this statement. On the other side of this paper the wife had written: I promise not to use this paper in any way to injure C. E. Reed. MARY S. MUOKINNTiar. Even this paper the girl signed with her maiden name. Lawyer McKnight's professional instinct told him he had a good case. At the April term of the equity court Mary S. Kinney filed a bill praying for a deoreesetting aside her marriage with Reed, on the ground that it had been procured by threats. Reed did not contest the action, and yesterday Judge Hagner granted the divorce. The young woman has been Mary Stuart MeKinney all through these queer proceed ings, and Mary Stuart MoKinney she de clared she will be for the rest of her life. She has tested matrimony and she is satis flied that marriage is a failure. THE MARKET'S. ?F'w Yore. August a.-Bar silver. $1.005. Copper-lleoavy; lake, August, $12.25.
