Tho noxt move by Gould is awaited with

great point is whether theso things
will bring him back to Wall street os
n dashing speculator as of old. Gould
long since announced his retirement from
tne speculative arena and has kept his word
as fur as can bo ascertained. But if Gould
puts his cash by tho millions into various
enterprises und is constantly on tho
look out for fresh fields to conquer, tho pro
sumption is that his own son will find it
necessary to como into tho market if only to
protect their interests. For a long timu tho
brokers have had littlo or nothing to do,
Couimack, Bateman and tho roht of their
party furnish business for but a handful of

tho coming Moses who is to lead them safely
out of their present deplorable plight. Peo
pie who aro seldom wrong say that when
Gould gets Muckay to consent" to

Bho studied nssiduously, uud mastered the

in 1882 to ninku her debut on tho stago of tho
Folies Dromatiqties, in Paris. Four years

This is Miss Dauvrny's second marriage.
Her first husband was Herbert Tracy a dra

Miss Dauvray met Mr. Wnrd socially two
years ago, nnd sinco thou sho has been a

Cleveland, Oct, 13. Tho causo of Mrs.
James A. Garfield ond daughter, Miss Mollio,
sailing for Eugland so unexpectedly on tho
Arizona yesterday is tho critical illness of
Miss Mason, Mrs. Garfield's niece, who is
now in London. This necessarily postpones
tho marriago of Miss Mollio to J. Stnnley
Brown, which had been fixed for Oct. 20.
Mrs. Garllold and daughter oxpect to pass
tho winter in Europe, and will not return bo
foro noxt spring at tho earliest. Tho wed
ding, therefore, will probably not toko placo
until next autumn. Thoy wero not accom
panied by Mr. Brown.
Notwithstanding tho foregoing explana
tion, which is an authoritative statement
from closo family frionds, the consensus of
opinion In social circles horo is that thoro
was soma interior purposo in this sudden dis
arrangement of long-matured plans, and cur
rent gossip is to tho effect that tho postpone
ment of tho wedding is not only until noxt
year, but is indefinite.
Nothing positive is known, of conrso; but
with tho wedding day so near at hand it is
argued, and with reason, that it could havo
been advanced t6 meet tho omergoncy, if tho
illness of Miss Mason is railing Mrs.and Miss
Garfield abroad, or if it wero necessary to go
a year's obscnao would not bo entailed in
consequonco. Altogether tho affair is most
mysterious, and bos afforded society hero a
choico morsel of gossip.
