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

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.
