Those
All wool, fast color, Crow Black and Imperial Blue
Rough Cheviot Suits that we sell at
$10.00
is the biggest ten dollars' worth of clothes you ever saw. Newest
styles in double and single breasted sacks and cutaway frocks, well
tailored and better fitting than any cheap custom made garments.
Poorer suits are sold in nearly every store in town at $12.50.
"We have as good value in an Overcoat at the same price, blue
and black, all wool, fast color Kersey and Beaver, good Italian lin
ing and velvet collar. The tailors would think they were doing
you a special favor to make its equal at $15 and even then they
wouldn't fit as ..well.
The best 50c Neckwear in America is here. It's the same
grade as others get 75c and $1.00 for. Isn't the difference worth
saving? .

To-.iay Is a greatcvent among the Cath
olics or the .Archdiocese of Baltimore. The
see was founded 10U jears ago to day
bj Pope Pius VI., who selected a pastor
ot ilonlgomery count-, Mil., the He v. John
Carroll, as Its rirst incumbent.
Father Carroll was an ex-Jesuit priest,

lie wus the founder of Georgetown Col
lege, In this eity.1 and ruled the bee of
Baltimore until lei.eiiib-r 3, lfclo, when
he died at the amsnetd age of to years.
In December, 1SO0, Rome gave him a
coadjutor, or aisiMnnt, in the lerson of
Rev. Leonard Neakv a n.ilUe or Clurles
county, Md., who turriveU hint two eare;
his death having occurred June Hi. 1M7;
and In April, 1 tua, the Diocese w as rai-ed
to the rank of an Arcl.-bishopric, at which
time the lour carbiitt diuious of a were
maderNew York, Phi&iderphla, Boston, and
Bardstown, (now Louisville) Ky., being
declared Its suffragan Nets, and their
ordinaries. Bishops Egan, Cheverus, and
Benedict ringet,Li!ig consecrated by Arch
bishop Carroll tn'Raitlniore during October
and November, 1810.
Tlie bishop appointed by Rome for New
Torkv Rev. Luke Corcorner, of the Dom
inican Order, died at Naples, I tiny, after
receiving consecration at Rome, and never
saw his sees, but his successor. Rev. Johu
Connull, also a Dcminican, was scon af
terwnrdichoscn, anir is known as, in reality,
the first bishop oflLot Diocese.
The successors of Archbishop Carroll
since 1815 have embraced Most; Revs.
Leonard Neale, founder of the Visitation
Nuus' Convent, Georgetown, who died
June 10, 1817; Ambrose Mnrecbel, a
native of Ingre, France, who died January
29, 1828; James Whitfield, of Liverpool,
Ens., who died October 18, 1834; Samuel
Eccleston, of Chestertown, Md., April 22,
1851; Francis Patrick Kenrick, of
Dublin, Ireland. July 8, 18G3; Martin John
Spaldiug, of Lebanon, Ky., February 7,
1872, and James Kooseelt Bajley, of
New York City, October 3, 1877.
The present cardinal arcbbihop of Bal
timore, James Gibbons, was appointed arch
bishop Bayley's assistant, or coadjutor.
In August, 1877. and succeeded blm on
his death, October 3. 1877. Ue became
a cardinal June 30, 1880.
Among the twenty-seven religious orders
of men and women connected -with the
archdiocese at the present time, those
known ns the Carmelite Nuns, the Visita
tion Nuns and the Sisters of Charity of Em
niettsburg take precedence, having been
founded in 1780, in 1799. and in 180S, re
spectively. The latter order Is probably
tlie best known among them, and members
of that community now conduct the lead
ing hospitals- and asylums at the arch
diocese, foremost among which Is Provi
dence Hospital, Second and D streets south
east. In this city.
At preseut the leading members of this
order in Washington are Sisters Eeatrice
Duffr, of Pittstmrg. Pa.; and Ldnise Carey,
ot New York City, the latter of whom
will soon celebrate her eighteenth anni
versary at the lrstltution.
In view of the fact that Washington has
recently been madeadlocescoftheProtesInnt
Episcopal Church, the Indications are that"
when the nest plenary council at Baltimore
meets a similar division of the see of
Baltimore will be made, just as the arch
diocese wasdlvided In 18C6 by thesevcrance
of the eastern shore counties after the
new see of Wilmington, Del., was con
stituted. It is believed that the date of the next
council Is not remote, as eleven years have
elapsed since the last general council of
November, 1884. at which A rchblshop (now
Cardinal) Gibbons presided.

mid tlio "Young Couplo ilako Tliclr
l'luns Dr. Illnloii Iteleused on Bund
to Apiieur 111 Court.
Mr. J. K. White and Miss Gertrude
Ilislop were married by Rev. Dr. Patch,
pastor of Gunlon Temple Memorial Church,
at No. 1132 Tenth street last night, the
Bedding being the sequel of the arrest
ot Dr. William L. Hislop, and the flight
from home of Miss Gertrude Hislop,
as published exclusively In The Evening
Times of esterday-
Afler four jears of repression, love
triumphed In the end and the ceremony
was solemnized In the midst of friends
and flowers.
Dr. William L. Ilislop, a well known den
tist and brother of Mrs. Dr M.irgaret His
lop, ol No. 313 M street northwest, was
arremed at 2 o'clock yisterday alternoon
and locked up atthcBicondprccli.Ctstatlon
hojse on a warrant chaiging him Willi
threats. The warrant was sworn out by
Mr. J K. White, a yojng draughtsman In
the Cio eminent service, and Fs the outcome
of .i very pretty little rouiauce In which
he and Miss Gertrude Hislop, a ward ot
Dr. Margaret Hislop, are thecetitral figures.
Abiut four years ago White met Miss
Gertrude, then u voumr clrl. al the Central
I Presbyterian Church, ot which all parties
connected witn thcarr.ilr are members. He
I became vry much luiatuated ultli her and
a little less than a year ago the two became
engaged.
1r. Margaret nnd her brother, so It Is
said, violently opposed the union, and hae
done everything In their power to sepa
rate the loteris. White claims that they
bac abused the girl In the most shamerul
manner, and says that a few days ngo Will
iam L. Hislop struck her on the head with
bis fist, and threatened to repeat it.
TOLD HER LOVER OF IT.
The basis of the threats warrant ts con
tained In the statement of the young girl
to her lover, title told him that William
told her repeatedly that If she ever married
White he would kill liliu. White also
-states tbat the brother and sister have
slandered him in the most oatrageous man
uer to the people of bis church, but nothing
has altered bis determination to marry
the young lady.
Yesterday morninghcrccelvedanotefrom
hissweetheart at theolllce, saying fhe was
locked in her mom, andl.er guarufan was
inaklrg preparations to send her to St.
Elizabeth's Insane asjlum. He at once
went to the house, but was refused ad
mittance. He then went to the police
court t where, after consultation with
Assistant Attorney for the District James
L. Pugh, Jie swore out the warrant for
threats.
It was Immediately sent to the station
house and placed In the hands of Policemen
Duvall. Accompanied by White, the io
llceiuan went to the house, and, aller plac
ing the man under arrest, the old lady was
warned against Injuring her charge. After
Hislop was taken to the station house Miss
Gertrude proceeded to pack her trunks,
under protection of Policeman Duvall.
while Sergt. McTaggart nnd her lover
waited on the outslile.
BADE ALL FAREWELL.
As soon as all her belongings were col
lecteel, she bid the old lady aud the bouse
farewell, and Joining her lover across
the street, the two Immediately began prep
arations for the wedding.
White say6 that during the, time the
brother was trying to prevent him from
se'ing Miss Gertrude, the dentist followed
him about the streets, harassed him at his
work, and even t-it in the pew with him at
church in order that he might not leave his
sight. The old lady, he sajs. aud a nurse
girl named Corlnue Manning were active
In spreading reiiorts about him.
Miss Gertrude, the pretty heroine of
this Interesting episode, is a few months
over eighteen years old and very much in
love with her determined fiance.
Mrs. White is an unusually pretty young
lady, with brown hair, brown eyes, a per
fect complexion and every smile digs two
dimples iu her cheeks- She made her re
sponses in a rather tremulous voice, but
It was the nervoumess of determination.
Mr. White Is a slender blond, who made
his promises In a way tbat indicated that
he meant to carry them out. The minister
blessed them, the ladles present kissed
the blushing bride, all hands congratulated
tlie groom, and a policeman from the Second
precinct served a summons on blm to
appear at police court tins morning at 9
o'clock. Mr. E. G. Russell stood as" best
man.
MANY SAW THEM MARRIED.
Among the guests were
Herbert Morgan, Mr. aDd Mrs. John n.
lllnton, Mrs. Wright, Miss Heeler, of Virgiuia;
Miss Wilson, Mr. W. B. Tld, Mr. J. T.
Smith, J. V. A. Shields, Mr. Taul F. Grove,
.Miss Sadie R. Morgan, Mr. and Mrs. J. C.
Buchanan.
The Times saw Dr. Margaret Hislop lat
night, but she refused to discuss the situa
tion, declaring that the young people
"must bear the consequences." The Times
also nought an Interview wllh Rev. Mr.
Rltzer, pastor of the Central Presbyterian
Church, but he sent word that he wmiM not
discuss the matter. Dr. William L Hislop
was- released from station No. 2 last night
under aborxl of $200.
ritOVIXG GROUND CONDITIONS.
- Lieut. MiisonV Anniinl Report Suggests
Ni-ededliiiproienieiits.
The annual report ot Lieut. Mason, In
charge of the proving grounds at Indian
Head, has been made to the Navy Depart
ment, aud contains several items of general
Interest. The report deals, ot course, with
the conditions and repairs at the grounds.
Considerable damage was done to firing
butt No. 2, which had to stand the brunt of
the shot from the twelve and tblrteen-lmh
guns. The three-inch wrought Iron plates
have been replaced by six-Inch cast iron
material, which will be a better resistant.
A brick bomb proof has been erected In
the rear ot the range battery and also 800
linear feet of brick wall to retain the sand
for tests.
Lieut. Mason went Into agriculture and
succeeded as a farmer. He raised about
400 bushels of corn, of good grade; 150
bushels ot inferior grade, and about 0 tons
ot fodder, all ot which will be sufficient to
support the stock. This experiment Is to
be continued annually.
It is recommended that the present sys
tem of lighting by oil be replae-ed by
electric! lighting, and that cheap dwellings
be erected for the employes', boat crews,
and the families ot employes. Lieut. Mason
thinks that six houses, of brlc'kraanufac
tured at the station, each to cost about
$600, would be sufficient, for the present,
to accommodate tho employes.
