A Dnlon between tbt Whitney and VanderbUt families was formed here to-day, when Mlu Gertrude Van derbilt was given by her father In marriage to Itarrr I'arne Whitney, eldest ion of former 8ec rtturj of the Nil)'. William C. Whitney. The wedding was conspicuous for Hi simplicity and prlrary. The guests were limited to about a score, outside of the member! of th two fam ilies. Hut for the lltneii of Mr. Yanderhtlt, the wedding would have been celebrated In Trinity Church with iplendor. Even- detail of tbe programme was kept secret as near ai poislble, and no one know ex actly who would be there. The legal part of the ceremony was performed by the Hey. Dr. George J. MagUL rector of Trinity Church. The pvxpal ritual was read by Dlihop IL C Pot ter, who alto pronounced the benediction. The whoVrrrenionr lasted only a fair minute. It was followed by a breakfast, after which the bride and bridegroom drove to Fort Adama and boarded W R. VanderbUt! yacht, the Valient, and steamed down the Bound. A notable feature of tbe wedding wai the great wealth represented by the bridesmaids, whose fortune! aggregate about $00,000,000. They were Miss Minnie Taylor, MUs Angelica Gerry. Mlsa Edith Shepard, MUl Emily Sloan, and Miss Leila Sloane, the three last being Miss VanderbUt's cousins. Tbe bridegroom was at tended by his brother, Payne Whitney, tbe best did, wbo came from Europe to attend the wedding. The ushera wens Messrs. Alfred O. VanderbUt, brother of the bride ; C. C. Baldwin, P. L.Coltenet. P. H. McMillan, and F. L. Polk. The guests were: Mrs. W. II. VanderbUt, Mr. JE. F. Shepard. Mr. and Mrs. W. Jay Schleffe llo, Mr. and Mrs. William D. 81oane, Mr. and Mrs. W. S. Webb. Mr. and Mrs. H. McK. Twotably, Mr. J. Rutgers Lo Roy, Mr. William C Whitney, Mr. and Mrs. Almerlo Ilugh Paget, Mr.and Mrs. C. T. Blarney, Mr. O. II. Payne, Dr. C M.

A large crowd of persona from Newport and about the town gathered upon the cliff and Ochre Point sides of the rllla and gazed upon "The Breakers" and listened to the strains of the orchestra tinder the. leadership of Nahan Tranko, director of the band at the German theatre in New Tort. The daT was perfect. Not a cloud dotted the sky, which wai a blue from horizon to horizon. A gentle southwesterly breeze tempered the atmosphere delightfully. The tall trees on the lawn of "The Breakers" swayed and nodded and Mined to keep time to the wedding music Uau fcu from the house through the great open win dows. The programme was so well managed last there was absolutely not a single hitch In carrylzt It out. excepting that the late arrival of guests necessitated a abort postponement of the ,' Mremoay. which took plaea la the drawing room. Tbe feature of the programme which, while apparently Insignificant to most persons, most , concerned tbe bride and bridegroom was get- i ting away after tbe ceremony without any one " knowing their means of transportation or their 1 destination. Tbe first report had It that the ' first stage of tbe honeymoon would be taken on board the Valiant. Mr. W. K. VanderbUt's yacnt. Tbe arrival of Cornelius VanderbUt's special car last evening aet aside this rumor. This morning a special train of five cars. In- ,. eluding Mr. VanderbUt's private car. was made Tip and switched on a siding at the Old Colony station. Tbe agent gave out to a crowd of perhaps 600 that the train was to leave with tho bridal party at 2 o'clock going via South Farmlngton, con- nectlng there with tbe Boston and Albany road , asd passing through to Lenox. This, It turned cat, was arranged to mislead curiosity seekers ,' While the big crowd was swarming all over the train In expectation of catching a glimpse of the bride and bridegroom, the latter were speeding their way by a devious route to Port Adams down on the bay, where the Valiant hod p steam and was tugging away at her anchor Is be released and go down the Sound. It was about 1:30 o'clock when the young tnilt, pelted with rice, made their way to the Vsnderbtlt carriage, which was driven up to tisdeor. A spirited pair of bays, decorated With rosettes of white ribbon, champed at the Ut. Two men sat on the box, one holding the relcs, the other a whin. The two were deco rated with white rosettes stuck on their coat Ispels. At the word the horses eprang an ay and fairly flew down tho wide drive and ont the main gateway, turning luto Ochre Point ave Bce. This tney followed to Shepard avenue. and then struck Bellovue avenue, following It t A to IUiar d avenue. At Sprlns street they made j another turn and hnrrled along, thence lo Mor- ton avenue. Down into Harrison avenue, br H the country club, they whirled to the south Wharf. Here their fast ride ended. Cornelius VanderbUt's secretary was stand H lug there ready to meet them. He handed Mrs. Whitney down to the float. Mr. Whitney fol- towed. The three entered a naphtha launch, which darted off to the Valiant. Tbe yacht B was bidden behind the point, bnt made Its ap H Pearance around the end of the fort. As It did B so tbo strains of muslo were wafted across tho H Wain. Tbero was an orchestra on board the 4 yacht. The party of three was taken up while ' the yacht was moving along slowly. Her hull disappeared around tho bend very quickly, and H not even the VanderbUt family knew herdes H tiuatlan. Late to-night a report reached hero B that she had anchored somewhere off Iing L IiUtid, ar.d that the bride and bridegroom In- tended to lako a train for Lenox from New j York 1 he special train at the Old Colony stn B tlou gulled out at 2. .10 without anybody but tho B tralu hands on board.

The tirldal party took position before the beautlfnl floral Prie liien of white sweet peas and lilies of the valley, upon which, later, they knelt for the blessing. Dr. Maglll nnd Illnhop Potter then performed the ceremony, while an orchestra rendered Handel's "Largo." Mr. VanderbUt relnii hlmvlf un and gave Ms daughter away. Tliu floral display In the grand salon consisted of an arrangement to fill the spaces between the groups nf twin colnmn. forming ati alcove In the gold room, where the ceremony took place, with large taxes filled to overflowing with lilies. Augusta Victoria rose, and Ku-charis-Amazonlca. Here and there about the room were tbe rarest of rat flowers, placed In vases. The fireplace was entirely banked with Farleyensls Xern, with Lanclfollum Album In termingled, tho colors all according with Uie permanent colors of tbe apartment. After the oeremony the bridal pair went Into the gray morning room, where they recolved tinder a canopy n( troplLal follago and two gi gantic palms, uhe only floral decorations con- aisled of a row of blooming while and pink rose troes eight feet tall, arranged alternately. The wedding breakfast was In order at 13:30 o'clock In the (lining halL There were abont seventy persons present, which Included all the two families, save Mr. George VanderbUt. who Is In Europe, and most Intimate friends. The break fast was served on ten small tables about a larser one at which the bridal party sat. i The beautiful VanderbUt silver rervlce was used. Tbe bridal table was decked with lilies of tho alley and white orchids. The small tables were decorated with mounds of bridal roses and bridesmaid rosee, while garlands of lilies of the valley and orchids covered the cloth. Groups of tall palm trees and hydran geas ornamented the balustrade along the ter race facing the sea. The breakfast was served In tbe palatial din ingmom on tbe east side of the villa, facing tbe ocean and north of the hall. It la a room of grand proportion, the celling Is some twenty Teet overhead, while two-thirds tbe way up there Is a massive cornice supported by great onyx pillars. The larger part of tho walls are In marble, and the decorations are rich lu carv ing and painting. Two great chandeliers with class ornamentation are dazzling with thetr beauty when lighted up. The gifts of the bride to her bridesmaids were forget-me-not brooches of dlsmonds and pearls. MrWhltney gave his ushera and best man Dear! and diamond stick pins. Every detail of the wedding bespoke lath wealth, though there was no loud display. The towns of the bridesmaids, which were the flfts of tbe bride, cost In the neighborhood of 1.000 each, Tbe bride's gown cost two and a half times that sum. The long Tell, which was caught up with orange blossoms and a diamond arrow, the girt of the bridegroom, was the same that Mrs. Cornelius VanderbUt wore on her wedding day. Mr. and Sirs. Cornelias VanderbUt. Jr., were not present, and so there has been no recon ciliation. Tbe sons of William K. VanderbUt. the cousins of the bride, were also not present for some reason or other. It was generally thought they wonld be. The wedding gifts probably exceed in value any beston cd upon a bridal coaple In this coun try. One room up stairs was literally filled. The greater part of tbe sifts consisted of Jewels and gold and silver. Diamonds there were In refusion. They represented a fortune, and letectlve Richards and his two assistants recog nized the fact, for they never took their eyes off them nntll the precious stones were locked np In tbe safe. A diamond necklace and tiara from the bride's parents and a diamond necklace from Mr, Whitney divided honors In the exhibition with tbe ruby and diamond pendant of Mr. W. K. VanderbUt, and Col. Payne's pearl necklace which, when thrown about the bride's neck, reached to the floor. In addition to theae there were all sorts of keepsakes, some useful and others merely ornamental, but all studded with preclona stones. "TheBreakeiVMslhemost palatial summer residence In the East. It replaced a wooden vUla which Mr. VanderbUt bought from Pierre Lorlllard several years ago, and which was de stroyed by fire. It is taxed for nearly a million dollars, and cost twice that sum. It Is built of cut Indiana limestone, with very elaborate carvlnrs from designs by Karl Bitter, tliein.nlD tor of the statue of the Keoubllo seen at the World's Fair. The structure la very large and Its adjoining terraces have great area, that at tbe front of the house being 100 feet long. Tbe bouse Is built entirely of stone, brlcg. and Iron, with cemented partition walls, and U therefore fireproof. Not a nartlcte of wood was used In the perma nent strseturaAsd very 11 ttl .about the Interior finish, which Is largely or marble and onyx. The grand salon, at the right of the hall. Is a LoolsXV. room, and the mot beautiful in tbe house. The furniture Is of heavy gold wood work, n 1th rich red silk coverings. The fresco painting about tho salon was executed by a corps nf Parisian artists, and required eeks to accomplish. The library Is of antique oak. und a part of Its decoration Is a fireplace and man telpiece that was unearthed trom tbo ruins of Pompeii and cost Mr. VanderbUt 175,000. Its celling Is gold in color.

After Talrtr-ve Iloara or Eapoenr OsT the Nenrroaadlautd Ilaaha Cant. Baraslde and tbe Tweatytwe Men AVer rannd by tbe Ulreassla and Brought Here. Capt. Thomas C Burnslde, skipper of the British tramp steamer Moldava, with his crew of twenty-two men, arrived In port yesterday on the Anchor line steamship Clrcassta. The Mol daa hit and was sunk by a big Iceberg off the Banks of Newfoundland. All tbe crew were saved after spending two days on the ocean in small boats. They lost nearly everything but tbe clothes on their backs. The iceberg tbey encountered was the biggest reported this season. Icebergs bare been large and plentiful this summer, and the skippers ot ocean steamers have had to exerclao unusual caution in avoiding tbem. The iceberg which tbe Moldava ran onto Is described as having been SCO feet high and so long that Capt. Burn side said he was nnablo to calculate lis length. One of the crew said tt was three miles long. The Moldava was of 1,477 tons register. Bhe was owned by the Mercantile Shipping Com pany of London, and was laden with 2,000 tons of coal for the Admiralty at Halifax. Sha sailed from Cardiff. Wales, on Aug. 11, and had good weather until early on the morning ot Aug. ID, when the atmosphere began lo get thick and hazy. Bhe proceeded at half speed and full speed alternately as the weather al lowed. Late In the nrternoon of Wednesday, Aug. 10, th fog became unusually thick, and the steamship was slowed down to half speed. The fog was not so dense, however, that It ob scured the sun altogether. A faint light overhead Indicated that the sun was breaking through the Dank. A fresh wind was blowing and the sea was choppy. Capt. Burnslde was on the bridge on tbe port side and 6econd Offioer Wade was on th starboard side, whlletwoseamenstoodontheforecaitletop. All were peering ahead through the fog, as the Cap tain surmised that they might meet an Iceberg in that region. The Moldava was thsn In lati tude 47 63'. longitude 40 10', bhe began steaming at half speed at 44 o'clock, and Just fifteen minutes later the watch on the forecastle lop gave the warning err that there was lco ahead four points off the port bow. Capt. Burnslde shouted to the steersman to put hit helm hard a-port, and this order had no sooner been executed than there was another warning cry from the forecastle watch that there was Ice from two to three points off the starboard side. Capt. Burnslde realized that he had ran Into what was apparently an Ice floe and Immediately gave the order to reverse the engines with all speed. Two minutes later, while the wheel was backing, a lar was felt from stem to stern. It aroused those of the crew who were below and they immediately tumbled out on deck. Tho forecoatlo lookont said there was no apparent damage to the bow. Capt. Burnslde, however, or dered Chief Engineer Klnnere and the ship's carpenter to go over the side in boatswains' chairs and ascertain what dam age there was. If any. They reported that everything was all right and not even the saint was scraped- The steamship was clear of the Ice br this time, bnt tbe huge berg was plainly discernible through the fog that surrounded lu Its tall sides loomed up higher than the steam ship's foremast. Capt. Burnslde then discov ered' thai the steamship hail ran lnui a horse-shoe-shaped bay In tbe Ice floe, and It Is sup posed that tbe damage sustained by tbe steam ship was caused by running over that part of tbe Iceberg which was submerged. It ma bat e been cansed, howeTer. by a piece or ice that had become detached trom tbe biff mass After tho Jar the Captain hail the hold sounded, but no water was tnnnd. The lifeboats Here snung out from tbe davits and everything was made ready for lowering them into the sea. At 0:10 o'clock another aoundlni; nas taken and it was found that there were thlit.fli Inches ot water in the scnnd compartment, while the first compartment nas dry as be torn, showing that the steamship was trtlllns at tbe bow. All hands nere mustered to Miss a sail under tho bow of the steamship, and she was "ent ahead slowly to keep the sail In position. Tbe boat were quickly pro Uioned. There was no lime to spare, and while the men hantlly gathered up what belongings tbey could the Captain elzert the register, log book, sextant, and quadrant, and put them Into one of the boats The next sounding shotted 4.4 feet of water in the second compartment, and at 7 o'clock water was reported In tho other. The water continued to rlso rap.dly in both compartments, and the Captain gave orders to man the life boats. There were three boats ready, and tho officers and crsw piled in as fast as they could. It was now? 4G o clock, and tbn waUr noaotcr the bow nf the steamer befuro tho Captain, real izing that It would bo folly to remain In the ves sel any longer. Jumped Into one of tbo boats, and all threo nero cleared away frum tho Moldava. Her propelli r could be seen hluli out of the water as she was going down, and then the cheering sound of another steamer's whistle was heard near by. If tt had coma along fifteen minutes boforc It could bao beun answered from the Moldava, but tho entire crew, yelling at the top or their lungs, got no responso. Iho occupants of all three Uiats rowed desperateh In tbo direction from which the steamer's whistle anntidcd, but It was not heard aealn, and tlicr finally stopptd rowing. All hands were completely exhausted. Tho Captain and tune of the crew nere In tho first boat, which was prnrlded nlth sail. With them was a pet terrier belonging to the Captain. Mate William huthcrltnd, who com manded tbe second lifeboat, with six of the crew, had picked np a cat frum the dock nnd placed her In bis boat. Four other cats and twenty chickens were left behind. Boatswain Williams and the rest of the crow were In tho tnlrd boat. Tbe Captain calculated that they wcro about 170 miles off Cape Itacn and forty miles nut of the regular steamship course. Ho concluded to iicad for Ht Johns, and setting tho eall on bis lont, had thnothtrs lashed behind. All hands turned to and tbei row cd steadily to tbe north wist until H o'clock tho noit morning, when the aca became ton rngh to go ahead, bca anchors were put out and the men In the boats rested. At 11 o'clock tbn Captain hoisted his rail again aud started to tow the other boats. Ho steered by a pocket rompnss. boon the w Hid became too strong for the sail and be was forced to take It In. Tbe sen ran high, and the lifeboats were tossed about like corks, with combers bioaklng over them every few moments. The sea anchors wero put out again, but the lasblngs of the boats wero parted by the heavy sas. Die men succeeded In keeping tho boats together. The sen calmed down toward evoulng, and they Ikv. gan roning again. They kepi it up III shuts until 1 o'clock on Friday niurnlnir, when they were forced to put out their sua anchors again. They remained together, nnd at 4 o'clock In the morning tho hoartu whistle of the Clrcaxsia was heard, and tl.o exhausted men arou-nl thenirelvvs. 'Ihey had sutne bine lights, and these wero hurriedly lighted, hoon tbero was nnother whlsllo from the steamer, and then a signal showed that the shipwrecked crew hnd been seen. The Clrcas ela stopped as soon as sho could aud the Mo. dava's crew rowed with might and main for her. Dawn was brisking as they started for the Clrraexia and rams of th" passengers on the latter hurried on deck when aim stopped. The Moldava'a orow wero almost ready to drop aa thrr approarhid her. and those In the maid's bnat hail to 1m almost driven to keep up.

The Iceberg which struok the Moldava was In what Is known In the Hydrographlo Office as th central division, which Includes that section of the Atlantic between longitude 52 and longl tnde 4H west. It Is the seventh big Iceberg wnlch has been reported by steamships arriv ing at this port since July 16. On that data the German steamer WUUommen passed one in latitude 42. loncltude48. which was 60 feat high and 160 feet long.

The Republican mass meeting at Old Orchard to-day, starting tbe Stat speaking campaign tn earnest, was probably the largest ever held in tbe district From 0,000 to 8.000 persons were present from all parts ot the district. Bpeaker Reed wai the chief orator. He waa In splendid form, and those who heard blm, many ot them veterans who have followed his political fortune! for twenty years, declared it the best epeeoh he has ever made upon the stamp ot the district. Us SDoke tor about one bour. Mr. Reed's reception was memorable tor the marks of enthusiasm and affection displayed by the great audience. Although In a more serious vein than those speeches with which Mr. Reed used to delight his hearers in other years, the audience found much quiet humor to amuse them. That part wherein Mr. Reed de clared that Malno was never moro steadfast for the Republican party than now was received with loud cheers ot approval. The people had journeyed trom all over th Bute to listen to the speeches ot the day In this grove and under these trees which have echoed the eloquence ot so many ot the great orators of all parties. Bat the elms ot Old Orchard never greeted an audience more thoroughly in earnest. Hotel Flsko was made official headquarters, and here Mr. Reed held an Informal reception after his arrival from his cottage at Grand Beach at about 11 o'clock. At 12:30 a dinner party ot fourteen sat down In the private dining room ot the Flske. The party Included Mr. Reed, the Hon. John DalzeU ot Pennsylvania, tbe Hon. Charles F. Ltbby ot Portland. J. E. Barclay. New Vork; the Hon. Murray Crane. Dalton, Mass. After dinner the procession was formed In front of th hotel, and the march to the camp ground began at a quarter before 2. Tbe chief marshal In chart ot the parade was th Hon. Horace Barbank of Saoo. Leading the march waa th Amerioan Cadot band of Portland. Following was a platoon of police, the Blddeford Fife and Dram Corps, the newly organised Mc Klnley and Hobart battalion commanded by Capt. Amos Goodwin, all In their campaign uniforms, 200 strong, and tbe Lincoln Club ot Portland, tinder command of Capt. J. D. Qulmby, with 160 men In line. The carriages, containing tbe speakers of the day and Invited guests, brought np the rear ot the procession. Arriving at the grove, the appearance of tbe party was greeted by rounds of applause from the assambled thousands. The presiding offioer of the day was the Hon. Charles F. LIbby of Port land, who In a brief speech Introduced Mr. Reed as the first speaker of the afternoon. Mr. Reed was received with cheers and applause as he stepped forward, and he held the closest atten tion of the vast crowd that thronged the audi torium by his able and masterly treatment of the vital questions ot the day and campaign. He said: " In this great temple of nature which basso often echoed with the words which teach of a nobler and broador life hereafter, which ts to be purchased by n manly struggle with evil here below, It is very fitting that we should com. menco this campaign for the opportunity to labor, wbloh is the opportunit to live, for a sound currency, whereby we gatLer tocursolves the Just and undiminished results of our labor, and for national honor, which is the culmination of Individual honor and the foundation of na tional prosperity. " What aeemed tho great primeval curse that In tbe sweat ot his face should man eat bread has been found. In tbe wider t lew of the great cycles ot the Almighty, to be the foundation of all sound hops, all sure urogress, nnd all perma nent power. Man no longer shuns labor a his deadliest foe, but welcomes It as his dearest frlccd. Nations no longer dream of riches as the spoils of war, but as tho fruit of human energy, directed by wise laws and encouraged by peace and good will. Battlements and forts and ensiles, armies and navies, are day by day less and leas tbo enginery of slaughter, aud more and more the guarantee ot peace with honor. What tho world longs for now Is not the pageantry and devastaUon of war for the aggran dizement of tbe few, but tho fnll utilization of all human energy for the benufit ot all mankind. " Give us but the opportunity to labor and the whole world of human Ufo will burst Into tree and llower. " Tu the seventy-flve millions of peoplo which makoup'the great republlo the opportunity to labor means more than lo all the, world besides. It means tbe development ot resources great beyond tbe oomtirehcnslon or any mortal and the diffusion among all ot riches to which the glories ot the Arabian Nights are bat the glitter of th pawnshop, and to which the sheen of all the Jewels of this earth are but the gleam ot tbe gloww orru In tne pallor of tho datrn. ALU I'Eon.U nltOt'LD PK AT wonR. "To develop our great resources It Is the one prime necessity that all our people should be at work, that all tho brain and muscle should be In harmonious notion, uuttod in their endeavors to utilize tbo great forces nf nature and to make wealth out of senseless matter and out of all the life which begins with the cradle and ends with the grave, and out of all the powers which ebb aud flow tn tho tides ot the ocean, in the rush of the rivers, aud out of the great energies which aro locked np In the bosom of the earth. "Man alone has mastery of the earth and sea and sky, and bv him alono can tho hidden treas ures be poured Into tbo light of day. "Butcaoh Individual man Is weak and power less. Only by combination, each w lib the other, can great results bo had. No moro striking proof of this can an where be found than In that complex union of men which makes up the modern nation and modern society. But whllo men must be united for great enterprises tho nature of man craves also liberty nnd Individu ality. Modern union and the complex, wonder fully complex, condition of modern soolety have drawbacks nnd sorrows which are completely their own. The sachems of New England had no financial troubles, no strikes. Tho currency quostton was as simple as a string of wampum. In Central Africa to-day banks net cr nreak and checks are never dishonored; for nellhor banks nor checks are needlul for their kind of pros perity. Beforo the farior system rendered combinations of workmen ncidful there was less dlscoulent, bu'. almost no progress, and thiro was no sharlug by tt-u toilers of theprollu and the pleasures.
