The wedding bells shall not ring to night It was the stern voice of law that spoke, and as the blighting frost falls upon bud ding nature, so these inexorable words fell upon the immediate hopes and plans of Peter Henry Ulrlch and Fannie Ell Flora Van Bonn, visitors at the marriage license counter of the court clerk's office yesterday afternoon Wedding preparations Tiad been made, guests invited, a minister secured, all was ready for a June wedding The prospec tive bridegfbom urged the bride to be pleaded tearfully, Hymen wapt, but all unmoved Clerk Switzer read the law to the lovers, the two disconsolate ones turned away crestfallen and there was no wedding at 2121 Crystal Lake avenue last night The two young people above mentioned joined the merry throng of happiness seekers lined up at the marriage license counter late yesterday afternoon When their turn arrived the would-be husband, a well-dressed and intelligent-looking young man, signed the register AS directd His fair partner stood by looking on "Have you ever been married'" asked the clerk ' Yes ' was the laconic reply, as the seeker glanced nervously at the lady. ' Where is your wife?" ' Divorced ' "How long ago?" " * ' * "Last January " "What time in January?" Thereupon the applicant or second pa pers produced a document, the copy of a divorce decree Issued at Detroit, Mich, Jan 27 Clerk Switzer examined the same thoughtfully and announced, that if those figures wera correct he could issue no license, as six months had not elapsed since the granting of Mr Ulrich s di\ orce An argument arose, and the joung man stated that he had beeninformed that if the divorce was granted in another state, it was not necessary to wait six months The clerk forthwith produced the statutes and read therefrom to the discomfiture of the eager voung couple "Why, we have simply got to be mar ried to-night," volunteered the lady, With tears in her voice 'Everything is ar ranged the minister engaged, and there is no way out o it' "I am sorry, madame," dispassionately replied the clerk ' I would like to help you, but you see what the law is " "Well, the six months will be up in a few days and I shouldn t thmk they would make any difference Won't you please give us the license Anyway the lawyer told us It was all right ' ' I can't do J&." - *-***** The fair pleader was crushed for a mo ment Then a smal lighted up her pleas ant features and leaning over the counter she said in a most winning way ' Can t you issue us a license and let us get married to-night and then after the 27th of the month we will come and get another and be married over again'" "The clerk smiled broadly but replied, "No, I am afraid not There is no way I can help you out " And the two disappointed lovers slowly left the office 10 residences 8 Journals 8 Journals. 1 Eve.

SHERIFPSSTAFFPROTESIS Grand Jury Strictures on Tax Col lection Methods Said to Be Unjust. As a result of the grand jury's final report published in yesterday's Journal, there is not the pleasantest feeling Im aginable in the sheriff's office The re port made some severe strictures upon Hennepin sheriffs, who, it Intimated, had without exception been grossly negligent in the matter of collecting personal prop erty taxes Sheriff Dreger has been en deavoring to work a reform in this re spect and his failure to secure results last year was due to the action of the court Itself. There were some extremely busy grand juries last spring and summer, ajid the court was In session upon Important cases thruout the entire term As a result, the sheriff's force was kept hustling upon court work and the personal property tax col lection, which usually occupies the duU weeks of summer, went by default The sheriff requested the court to ap point six additional deputies to look after this collection, but this was refused This year the force has been permanently en larged by the addition of four men, and as Chief Deputy Jones informed the grand jury investigators last week, It is the expectation that personal property taxes will be collected this season and that lev ies Will be made upon the property of de linquents. "When I stated these facts to the grand jurOrs recently," said Mr Jones this morning, "they assured me that that was aU they wanted and that Sheriff Dreger was the only sheriff Who was going after this collection business properly Natur ally We were astonished to read the crit icism In the report. , "Since that document was made public I have taken up the raatteT with three prominent members of the grand jury and they have assured me that they had no idea that our office was to be so sharply criticized, nor did they believe that such criticism "was Just W e expect to make that personal tax collection and are doing It, and In view of that fact, it seems to me that criticisms are, to say the least, in poor taste " NEW BRIDGE AT SNELLING Congressman Stevens and Mayor Smith Interested In Securing a Larger Structure.
