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 in September. 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 east. " 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 for Fairfax. A Surprise in Store. When they alighted at the railroad sta tion they found a surprise in store for 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 about it. Mrs. I'yles. who Is a tall, handsome blonde, has a host of friends on Capitol Hill, and it is predicted that when her marriage is generally known she will be flooded with presents and congratulations.

HARMS URGED WIDER INQUIRY ? SAYS INSPECTORS EVERY WHERE COMPLAIN. Anxious for Opportunity to Tell of Conditions, He Asserts?Secre tary Wilson Unmoved. FREMONT, Ohio, June 26.?James F. Harms of Fremont, a former government meat inspector, whose letter of pesigna tion to Secretary of Agriculture James A. Wilson brought about the recent investi gation of the. National stockyards at Kast St. Louis, today made public an open letter to Secretary Wilson urging a general investigation of the Inspection departments of the various packing plants of the country. In his letter Mr. Harms says that he has letters from meat Inspectors located from Philadelphia to San Francisco ask ing to be given the opportunity to tell what they know of conditions at other stations. He says he had been repeatedly Informed the in.-pections at the National stockyards at Kast St. Louis was su perior to that of any other station. Secretary Wilson says he has not re ceived Inspector Harms' letter. Owing to the character of the report of the spe cial commission sent to St. Louis to in vestigate Harms' original charge" he is not inclined to pay any attention 10 the open letter. The report of this commission has not yet been made public, but Is in the hands of the Secretary. It i? understood it does not substantiate the contentions of Harms. The peach crop for Hampshire county, W. Va., will greatly exceed earlier ex pectation. The June crop was light and while the crop will be somewhat "spotty." Harry Miller, one of the largest growers, predicts that the county will market more peaches than in any former single season. TO BE UNVEILED SATURDAY, JULY 3 THREE VIEWS OF THE G. A. R. MONUMENT.

Recognition Given at Last. i After forty-three years the founder of the Grand Army of tiie Republic, Maj. j ! Stephenson, is to have nation.-1 re- e^- i nition through the massive monument i.o 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. Gen. Charles Partridge of the Dep. rt- j merit of Illinois tirst suggest* d the monu- ; ment about ten years ag > to < ol. John McElrov, ediu?r of the National Tribune, the organ of the veterans. Coi. .\1 Klro> 1 took up the -matter and agitated ^ it j through the columns of the Nation <1 Tri-j bune, and several hundred dollars was j raised in that way. Finally the matter was taken to the national enc.impotent of the Gra:;d Army of the Republic. That body took up the work. The first suggestion was lor a statue of Maj. Stephenson in bronze, representing, him in uiiiiorin. This statue was to be erected in Washington. Congress readily pasted a law permit i ting its erection. No money w.s ap | proprlated. Gen. Louis Wagner of Philadelphia, ninth commander-in-chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, who, with Gen. i Robert B. Beath, also of Philadelphia and a past eommander-ln-chief, hold the record of never h ving missel an en campment of the Grand Army of the Re public, and Col. McElroy were appointed upon a committee to raise funds. Gen. Wagner was made treasurer of the com mittee, and lias so served ever since. This committee has raised nearly 000 for the monument. *-?. this sum the Woman's Relief Corps has contributed $txjy. Congress Votes Money. Congress appointed : s a committee for ! the House and Senate the Secretary of War, the superintendent of public build 1 ings and grounds and the chairmen of the I committees of library of the House and Senate. In 11*?7 the joint resolution of t!)02 was repealed and a new resolution was passed and signed by the President, authorizing the expenditure of Sto.ooo from the United States Treasury for the purpose of preparing a site for the monu ment and erecting a pedestal when the place should be selected. The joint resolution of 11)07 also directed that in addition to tlit* committee .from Congress, the treasurer of the Grand Arny committee. Gen. Wagner, and the | secretary of the committee be added and i created a "commission" to carry on tlie [ work. The monument is now completed and is I ready i ?? ? " 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, 18(54. 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 project. At the close of their atmy service this 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 organization. The following are known to have par ticipated in the conferences in Spring field that finally resulted in the organi zation of the Grand Army of the Repub lic: Maj. B. F. Stephenson, Col. John M. Snyder, Dr. James Hamilton. Maj. Robert M. Woods. Maj. Robert Alien. Chaplain William Rutledge. Col. Martin Flood. Col Daniel Grass, Col. Fdward Prince. Capt. John S. Phelps. Capt. John A. Lightfoot. : Col. B. F. Smith, Maj. A. A. North, Capt. Henry Howe, Col. B. F. Hawkes and 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>. April (i. 1HMJ. tiie first post of the Grand Army of the Republic was organized .at Decatur. 111. This post is on? of the large posts of Illinois today. Not a sin gle member who signed the charter is now living, except Gen. Woods. Stephenson's Hopes Daslied. The Department of Illinois, as organized by Maj. Stephenson, was only "provision al." Maj. Stephenson was its "pro visional commander." The first department onoampment was j called by Maj. Stephenson to meet in j Springfield. 111.. June 2>. 1806. Maj. Stephenson called the m -eting to order, and appointed a committee on organiza- j tion. 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 ma nder-in-chief. lie was to suffer bitterer disappoint-! "lent, however. The organization which I he created was to expand anil then fade i into nothingness before his death. The I "Grand Army," of which he had dreamed, had practically disappeared from view I when he t.icd in 1871. Wane and Revival of G. A. R. Years were to pass after the death of Maj. Stephenson before the Grand Army was to become the thing its founder dreamed of. Gen. John A. Logan was the second commander-in-chief. It was during his first term that he issued his general or ders No. 11, establishing Memorial day He was twice re-elected. I'mler his years of office the Grand Army grew rapidly. But the plant needed nourishing. Gen. Logan had not the tim.-1 ior that. The Grand Army began to decline dur ing his third term, until at the close of nia last administration there was scarce ly a department in good standing. At his first national convention, or cn ~ ? I'pm Tv?re twenty-three de partments represented; at the second, nineteen, and at the third only seventeen, and in those representation was largely self-constituted. At the eleventh annual session, when Gen. John F. Hartranft of Pennsylvania was commander-in-chief, hut twelve de partments were entitled to representation. Most of those were scarcely considered in legal standing. j .ie membership began to creep up in 1S7X, and had reached itl.OUi. In l*>vt. wuile Gen. Robert B. Beath was coni mander-in-t-hief, the order made its great est gain?over So.noo in that one year. Nothing liKe it was known, before, and nothing since. The Grand Army of the Republic gained rapidly until when it reached high water mark. Since then the num bers have decreased rapidly, until the membership at this time is The losses by death each year *are heavy. L?ast year the number was 12,00>. The three-faced monument will bear four bronze tablets. The front will have tne tablet "Fraternity." a soldier and sailor under the ilag. "Charity" is repre sented as a woman giving a cup of cold water to a child, who Is under her pro tecting cloak. "Royalty" is represented by a woman of noble proportions, who holds a sword in one hand and the great seal of the United States upon a shield in the other. The three words represent the motto of the Grand Army of the Republic and of the Woman's Relief Corps, the auxiliary of the G. A. R. It is also the motto of the Ladies of the G. A. R. Just below the hronze tablet "Fraterni ty" will be a tine bas-relief of Maj. Stephenson in his uniform, the only pic ture of him known to exist.
