THE MARRIA6E LEAKED OUT
RECENT WEDDING OF DR.
PI,YES AND MISS HAMILTON.
They Supposed That the Ceremony
at Fairfax Court House Would
Remain a Secret.
* A few friends of Dr. J. Chester Pyles
and Miss Josephine Hamilton, both of
Whom live on Capitol Hill, are all a-flut
\0r over the recent romantic marriage of
tfcls young couple. As yet only a limited
tttamber of their friends know of It?a
very limited number, by tlie way?but
rumors are traveling fast, and the happy
bride and bridegroom, who were married
at Fairfax Court House, Va., June lt>,
will soon be the recipients of the con
gratulations and good wishes they had
not expected to receive until some time
They had been engaged for some time.
There was no opposition on the part of
the bride's parents. Mr and Mrs. Robert
B- Hamilton, of Ti?K F street northeast.
On the contrary. Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton
think a great deal of the young physician.
Dr. Pyles lives at '.'OS sth street south
One tine day week before last the
young people decided to get married. Of
course it was to be a secret, because Dr.
Pyies* house, where they expert to live
later, will not be ready for them until
September. and they had no intention of
announcing their marriage until then,
when they will uo on their delayed honey
moon. So forgetful of the la<t that even
such things as secret marriages will leak
out. they determined to fool everybody
for a while
They had to have one confidante,
though, so they selected Dr. Pyles' sis
ter. Mis* Hester Pyles. With a woman's
innate love of lovers and brides and
bridegrooms. Miss Pyles Jumped at the
chance to be declared In* on the romance.
The night before the wedding Miss
Pyles sp*-nt with Miss Hamilton, and
early the next morning the two stole out
of the house and hied them to the Union
station, where the bridegroom met them.
They sought the first southern train out
A Surprise in Store.
When they alighted at the railroad sta

them. Fairfax station on the Southern
railway is three miles and a half from
Fairfax Court House, where the wedding
Was to occur. So they had to take the
old stage, which has been traveling be
tween the courthouse and the station for
many, many years. It was a beautiful,
bright morning. The three elopers were
in excellent spirits and. Instead of being
put out at having to drive three miles,
they were struck with the humor of it,
and the two girls traveled the distance
in a gale of laughter.
Obtaining the necessary license the
bridegroom led his bride to the parson
age of the Baptist Church, where the
Itev. Mr. Strother performed the cere
mony. Then the trio returned to Wash
ington and told the bride's family all

be unveiled here Saturday.
It will be the first monument raised to I
his memory. Getting together the funds!
for it has consumed tho- greater part of;
the last ten years. The movement had!
its ineipiency in Illinois.

Wagner was made treasurer of the com

This committee has raised nearly

Congress appointed : s a committee for

War, the superintendent of public build

was passed and signed by the President,
authorizing the expenditure of Sto.ooo

purpose of preparing a site for the monu

finally settled en the site which is just
across 7th street from the heroic statue
of Gen. Hancock.
The idea of an organization to hold in
friendly relation those who should sur
vive the great struggle was born upon
bivouac in the expedition of Sherman
against Meridian, Miss., in Februray,
Maj. B. F. Stevenson was a native of
Illinois. He was born in Wayne county
October KO, 1822. In young manhood he
went to live in Sangamon county He
was a graduate of Iiush Medical College
of Chicago, 111., in the class of 1849-5n.
ITpon the organization of the 14th Illi
nois Infantry, May ^5. 1MJ1. Dr. Stephen
son was elected its surgeon. Another
man was mustered into the position,
though Gen. Stephenson had been unan
imously elected hy the officers and en
listed men of the regiment, under the
laws of Illinois.
Later, I>r. Stephenson was appointed
regimental surgeon of the regiment, and
he was mustered in at Pittsburg I.anding
April 7 liS 2. Dr. Stephenson served his
term of three years and was mustered
cut June 24, 1864.
Idea Conceived in. Bivovac.
The 14th Illinois was a part of the
Meridian expedition. In the long watches
of the nights, upon the march and in the
bivouac Chaplain W. J. Rutledge and
Maj. Stephenson discussed the matter of
the soldier organization.
Chaplain Rutledge suggested Xo Maj.
Stephenson that soldiers when mustered
out of service naturally desire some asso
ciation to preserve friendships and memo
ries of common trials and dangers. As
they talked together their thoughts ex
panded into the widest fields of conjec
ture as to the capacity for good in such
an organization of veterans, and they
agreed that if they were spared they
would together work out some such

subject formed the greater part of their
correspondence until March, 18t>6, when
the two comrades met by appointment in
Springfield, 111 They spent several days
in arranging a ritual for the proposed
The following are known to have par

Col. B. F. Smith, Maj. A. A. North, Capt.

Fred I. Dean.
The last two were well known in Wash
ington. and died here only two years ago.
Of all these veterans only one, Maj.
Robert M. Woods, is living. All the
others have "mustered out."
Col. Woods will unveil the monument to
hifc old commander.
Maj. Stephenson and the veterans per
fected an organization, somewhat incho
ate, but which they called "The Grand
Army of the Republic", Department of
Illinois," of which Maj. Stephenson was
styled the department commander and
Robert M. Woods adjutant general This
organization of tlio Department of Illinois
was completed April 1, lsc,t>.

Stephenson's Hopes Daslied.
The Department of Illinois, as organized
by Maj. Stephenson, was only "provision

called by Maj. Stephenson to meet in j

Stephenson called the m -eting to order,
and appointed a committee on organiza- j
Afaj. Gen. Stephen A. Hurlbut, who was ;
to be the first commander-in-chief, was i
chairman of the committee on resolutions.
The convention proceeded to elect Gen. I
John M. I'almer, commander of the fully
organized Department of Illinois, instead j
of Dr. Stephenson, as he had hoped they j
would do. The convention adopted reso
lutions of eulogy to. Maj. Stephenson, in
which they recognized him as the head
and front of the organization.
Although bitterly hurt that he was not
elected commander, Maj. Stephenson
then turned his attention to a national
>rganization, of which he styled himself
"commander-in-chief," and issued general
orders No. 1.'?, dated October :tl. l.siMt, in
which he called a national convention of i
the Grand Army of the Republic to meet j
in Indianapolis, November 2a. ls?itt. Again
Maj. Stephenson was turned down, and i
Gen. Hurlhut of Illinois, but a native of!
South Carolina, was elected first com

he created was to expand anil then fade i
