When the bridal party ascended the stairs nt the.barraclc and took a position Ju frow smiles, beamed from pretty faces hid under the conventional poke bonnet" of the Sal vation Army lasses. Major John Sammons gave the bride and bridegroom in an ante nuptial address the benellts of his own wedded experience. So enthusiastic did the Major become that he declared In a voice that could be heard a block that be could lick an- one (weicht and color conditions waived) who said that marriage was a failure. To keep up the enthusiasm Brigadier Stephen Marshall, who officiated at the wedding, declared immediately after the ceremony that the bride and bridegroom were promoted In rank from Captain to Eniign, Just to help them brave the matri monial sea. The Brigadier also allowed the twain a furlough (they don't have honeymoons In the Salvation Army) of two weks, and headed a subscription of 5 to help them spend the furlough. From a pockot he pro duced a $3 bill and dared anyone else In the audience to do likewise. He went among the crowded benches and succeeded in raising $25. Brigadier Marshall next announced tbat all the young ladles of the army iieM at liberty to give their observations on mar riage, and that they would be followed by those In the army that had tried It. Ensign Stone King was the 1m ycung woman to rexpond to the invitation. n"d ke stated that while she did not like marriage In general, she would not be particularly averse to It. if some young (3ilva;lon) Army officer came forward. None re sponded. Brigadier Marshall then Introduced the bridegroom of a minute to the'audlence, re ferring to him as "the Individual who im agined be is the happiest man in the house." Captain Isaac declared that he knew he was the happiest. Then the bride bluthlngly confessed that she was extremely happy and called for a halleluah, to which all shouted reply, while the big bass drum resumed operation. The form of ceremony used by the Salva tionists follows: "We do solemnly declare that we have not sought this marriage for the sake of our own happlners and interest only, although we hope these will be furthered thereby, but because we believe that the union will enable us better to please and serve God and more earnestly and successfully to tight and work in the salvation Army."

III.. July 24. Just returned from a trip to Colorado, Mayor Patten of Kvans ton to-day assumed personal charge of his deal in July oats and boosted the price of that commodity to 70 cents, or the highest figure at which oats have sold in nearly thirty years. The price reached to-day nearly equals that paid for oats during "war times." In July. 1S54. oats sold at SI cents. In October. ISO, thej- sold at 71 cents, and touched that figure again in July, 1S71. In the last few years oats have sold on the Board of Trade as low as 14Ji cents, that price Ijeing record ed In September, 1S96. There was much excitement caused by the advanca to-day. This circumstance, traders said, was due to tht fact most of the smaller shorts had co-ered, leaving the bigger ones to carry on the struggle with Patten. Brokrs. acting for the bull leaders, were active In bidding the price up. and this led many to believe private settlements were near at hand. XJttle credence was placed In reports In circulation the last day or so. that large quantities of oats were headed toward this market. Intended to break up the congested conditions In July. Tho bears hae been talking larse re ceipts for tbr Jaut vveek or so. but so far i-ielr predIct.o.i.u.Ye not been fulfilled. Unless receipts increase materially with in the next few days, traders say shorts will have little alternative except to settle with Mayor Patten and at his own terms, and it Is figured that the deal will net the big speculator a handsome profit, al though Ms present line Is not nearly so Urge as the one he had In May. when he gave shorts In that month a hard squeeze. July corn also developed more In the way of bullish activity. It sold at 70 centa. or 3 cents above the close yesterday. The advance took place on scattered buy ing by shorts, who. because of small re ceipts and large cash shipments, once more stand In fear of manipulation. LEADING TOPICS -IN- TO-DAY'S REPUBLIC.

"Did you talk with Faulkner about the 73.000 which bad been deposited in tho Lincoln Trust Company's safe deposit box to be used to influence tho passage of the Suburban bill by the House ot Delegates?' "Yes. I met Mr. Faulkner In the Chemical building, and as we walked west on Olive street, going to our homes he broached the subject of the $73,000. TVe walked as far as Grand avenue and talked of the different combines. In his remark about the $75,000 I told htm I had heard ot It. but did not be lieve It on account of Phil Stock's connec tion with It. Later I conversed with Faulkner about the matter on the House of Delegates' floor. He told me that the boys were desperate, and that a threat had been made to give the story to the press In order to frighten Stock Into giving up the money."

Asked to state whether he had been subpoenaed to testify before tba Grand Jury, he replied that he had. Governor Johnson then took the witness. He first asked Relss what nurd he repre sented. The witness replied that it was the Twenty-eighth. "What is your politics?' asked Johnson. "Republican." replied Relss. When asked if he had met Faulkner In the House, Relss replied that he had and that Faulkner was a man of whom he had a high regard. When asked to state if 1-e and Faulkner had not often talked about general matters jn the Houe, Relss said he was free to admit that he bad; that Faulkner was one ot the members of tbat body who had attracted his fancy.

He told how Cronln was made Speaker of the House and said that It was charged that Cronln' s organization was working to block legislation desired by the Mayor. Asked to tell how the conversation with Faulkner came up, the witness stated that he complained about the manner In which Speaker Cronln had treated him.
