a Pamous French Family

Miss Anna Gould, daughter of the late
Jay Gould, to Count Paul Ernest Boni
face de Castcllane, was solemnized today
tit noon, Archbishop Corrigan officiating,
at the residence of her brother, George J.
At 11:30, relatives and eighty intimate
friends assembled at the house, which
was artistically draped throughout with
tropidal plants, roses and lilies. Elsa's
Dream, from Lohengrin, was sung by
Rosa Schuer, the operatic soprano, to an
accompaniment of string orchestra. This
was followed by a bridal march from
ljohcngrin, and the assembled guests
witnessed the bridal procession descend
ing the flower-adorned stairs in the fol
lowing order:
I'shers, Prince Del Drago, Raoul Duval,
Brockstoi Cutting and Howard Gould;
bridesmaids, Miss Beatrice Richardson,
Miss Adelaide Montgomery, Miss Cather
ine Cameron and Miss Helen Gould. The
bride, leaning on the arm of her brother,
George J. Gould, her train being carried
by her nephews, Masters Kingdon and
Jay Gould, entered the music rooms and
passed into the East India room, where,
The bride's "going away" gown
awaiting the approach of his bride, stood
the bridegroom, attended by bis brother,
Count Juan de Castellane. On a dais
stood Archbishop Corrigan, wearing eccle
siastical robes. Mr Gould placed his sis
ter's hand in the Count de Castellane's
hand, and withdrew to where his wife and
two little daughters stood. The ceremony
was abridged uy the fact that the bride
is not, as has been frequently stated, of
tbe same religious faith as her husband.
The Aye Maria was sung by Rose Schuer,
stationed at the foot of the stairs in
the large noli. After the benediction
MendelssoUn'• weduing march tilled the
room and in bride received the good
wishes of the Archbishop and friends.
A delicious wedding breakfast was served.
At 2:30 tbe bride, attired in a traveling
dress,passed through the hall crowded with
friends anxious to bid her farewell. The
family have a remote idea as to the im
mediate future of the movements of the
Count and Countess de Castellane.

collar of superb pearls, consisting of ten
I strands, in which were seventy-two dia
monds and 800 pearls. The Marquis and

I toinettc.

Spending {50,000 a Month.
For the past month Miss Anna Gould
has been spending her income every single
duy. Hhe iias $l">,Oo'J,noo in all, SGOO.OOO a
year, $60,00) a month and nearly $2,003
every twenty-four hours. This is the first
time in her twenty-one years that she hus
»en able to get through with the vast
■ :n of money which her careful old father,
~.iy Gould, piled Up for her.
She has been buying her wedding
clothe*, us all the world knows, and as she
i - to. be a Countess, her trousseau is un
nAiHTry coMly. even for a millionaire bride.
Ever since Count de Castellane made his
formal proposil for her pretty little white
hand, the cable has been busied with
orders to Pingat, Felix, Doucet and Worth
for gowns, wraps, bonnets and sets on
sets of exquisite lingerie, and she and the
Count have robbed all of the big New
York shops of their choicest creations, for
her fiance has matchless taste, and he has
suggested many of her handsomest robes
and designed himself her wedding gown
and the very striking toillettes for the
Miss Helen Gould, the lovely sister of
the little bride, and Miss Annie Cameron,
daughter of Sir Roderick Cameron, are to
wear exquisite bridesmaids' dresses of
heavy white cloth trimmed with bands of
black sable fur; their big picture hats of
black velvet will be loaded with black
plumes, and they will carry bunches of
lilies of the valley and orchids. The
groom's gifts to them are pins made of
the monogram G. C, set in flashing dia
The bride will wear white satin as stiff
and lustrous as satin can be. The gown
is cut in princess fashion, and the only
trimming for the full plain skirt is a frill
of marvelously beautiful lace falling from
wreaths of orange blossoms. The train is
four yards long. It will be almost covered
by the exquisite point lace veil, which is
to fall from a coronet of emeralds and
diamonds, the gift of Mr. and Mrs. George
Jay Gould. The corsage is made with
high neck and very full, long sleeves.
Two $14,000 Emeralds
Catching the lace on her bodice, the gift
of her fiance will show with dazzling
effect. The gift was designed by Count de
Castellane, and it is regal in its beauty.
Two hundred and fifty large diamonds and
two immense emeralds, the latter costing
$14,000 each, are used. There is a central
piece nearly as large as a woman's hand
and an elaborate diamond-crusted design
enclosing one of the emeralds. Double
chains of diamonds run right and left,
fastening high upon the shoulders, caught
at one end by three diamond feathers,
and at the other by a small copy of the
center piece, also holding an emerald.
From the necklace of diamonds which
Miss Helen Gould has given, among many
other gifts, will hang a pendant, another
gift from the groom. It is an emerald as
nearly flawless as those stones ever are,
and the largest for depth and brilliancy
that has ever been seen in New York. It
is suspended in a loon of picked white
diamonds. Besides her bouquet of white
lilies and orchids, she will carry a fan of
point lace, made In the same pattern as
liar veil and the lace which drapes her
The dolng-Away down
Her going-away gown is a thing of
beauty. The material is heavy ribbed
dark green silk, almost the color of an
ivy leaf. The skirt fits snugly about the
waist, but flares in the most approved
French fashion at the foot. A band of
dark mink fur runs around the skirt, and
upon it is a black silk guipure entredeux
laid over a band of white satin two inches
deep. The skirt is plain in the front and
at the sides, but falls in a deep series of
godet pleats at the back. The corsage is
a quaintly shaded coat opening over a
waist coat of tight-fitting ermine, with a
high military collar outlined by a narrow
band of mink. The coat has a broad col
lar and a wide reverse of white satin over
laid with the black guipure, and the
sleeves are voluminous affairs of the silk/
trimmed with a tiny band of mink at the
waist. The crowning glory of this cos
tume is the buttons, all of wedgwood
ware, having a design of white Cnpids on
a green background, set in a rim of flash
ing rhinestones. The gloves are white,
and the picture hat of green velvet is
trimmed with a bunch of green ostrich
tips in front and a great, loose bunch of
violets on one side, looking as though
they were, like the other flowers, freshly
gathered at the conservatories at Lynd
She Will Take Twelve Trunks
In the twelve big trunks which will ac
company the Countess de Castellane across
the seas are dresses to walk in, to dance
in and talk in, and especially dresses in
which to do nothing at all. A beauty
which she will wear in the early Spring
is of Narcissus green cloth braided all
over in a ribbon design in fine silk braid
of a walnnt tint, entwined* with thaeads
of iridescent metal. The capote is of
Narcissus velvet with wings of bronze.
A gown of purple cloth has a triple
pleated blouse of purple Lyons velvet,
with a collar and narrow braces of er
mine, and a black silk, brocaded in roses
and forget-me-nots, has a waist of pink
chiffon over pink silk, touched with
bands and bows of rose pink velvet.
There are velvet and silk gowns for car-
riage and reception wear, brocaded arm
ace-covered silk gowns for balls and par
ties, dinner dresses and housa dresses in
almost endless variety of coloring and

It would have done your eyes good to
see the exquisite hand-made lingerie, all
ruffled and embroidered. Every article
is ruffled, fine and soft enough for any
baby in the land. Three dozen of every
article was ordered, and the bill for these
cobwebby garments was $3,000. Silk skirtn
were ordered of every hue, ruffled and
embroidered. Every article was of silk,
and the colors included every shade of the
Many people thought that, owing to
the short time between the announce
ment of the engagement and the mar
riage, Miss Gould might utilize the
trousseau she purchased in Paris a year
ago, when she was engaged to Oliver
Harnman. The breaking of this engage
ment made the trousseau useless. But
Miss Gould is not an ordinary young
woman in the matter of wealth or dispo
sition, and a new trousseau was deter
mined upon with gratifying results that
can easily be seen.
From a financial standpoint the wed
ding will be a credit to the name of
Gould. The trousseau, the gifts of the
family and friends and the other mci
dentals will represent in the aggregate an
expenditure of something like $160,000.
A Civil Harriage
Xew York, March s.—The World this
morning says: At 2p. m. George Gould
telephoned to his attorney, Julien T.
Davies, saying in effect, "We have de
cided to have a civil marriage. (So imme
diately to the Court House and ask a
judge to come up prepared to perform a
marriage ceremony."
- -This niesv.me caused ureal evituncnt
in the law office. Justice Andrews con
sented to go, and leaving the bench was
driven rapidly to the Gould home. When
he arrived it was 3:30 o'clock, and the
rest of the wedding party was in a state of
excitement for fear the plan to
have a civil marriage might fall
through. Justice Andrews performed
the ceremony. George and Helen Gould,
Attorney Garner and about half a dozen
of the guests were witnesses. The bride
and bridegroom signed the certificate
hurriedly and departed.

The Flags Lowered Upon the
Fifty-Third Congress
Partial; Words of Thanks to Speaker
Crisp of the House
Kindly Sentiments for the Retiring Officers
Loudly Applauded—Closing Acts
In Both Houses
Washington, March 4.—At noon today,
after a continuous session of forty-eight
hours, interrupted by an occasional re
cess, the flags above the capitol were
lowered and the Fifty-third Congress had
passed into history. In the House the
end was not marked or marred by any un
pleasant incident. All the appropriation
bills were out of he way when the House
convened at 8 o'clock this morning | the
time dwindled away until 11 o'clock, the
only feature being a rather brisk debate
on the results to follow from the project
ed monetary conference. The usual com
mittee was sent to the President to inform
him that Congress was ready to adjourn,
and the other formalities of the end of a
Congress were gone through with. The
concluding minutes were in the nature ol
a love feast. The best of feeling pre*
The resolution of thanks to the Speak
er, which came from the minority, was
offered today by Cannon in a very grace
ful speech, bearing testimony to the high
appreciation in which the presiding offi
cer was held by the Republican minority,
Wilson of West Virginia responded on be
half of the majority, and Simpson o r
Kansas represented the Populists, join
ing in the expression of thanks for the
courtesies and kindnesses exteneded by
the Speaker.
All the kindly sentiments were applaud
ed, and when Crisp himself ascended the
rostrum to return thanks and deliver his
parting words, the demonstration was ter
rifie. .
At the conclusion of his speech, just be
fore delaring the House ad journed, he ap
pointed Mr. Culberson of Texas. Mr.
Hitt. of Illinois and himself members of
the monetary commission. His own ap
pointment was by resolution.
As the Fifty-third Congress came to an
end the Doxology was sung by the corres
pondents in the press gallery.
At noon the United States Senate closed
its final session of the Fifty-third Con
gress amid crowded galleries, congratula
tory resolutions, a parting word from
President Cleveland and a brief valedic
tory from the Vice-President.
The wonted dignity of the Senate was
preserved to the end, except for the rush
of business incident to the last hours of a
The Senators were at work by 9 o'clock,
after having remained in the chamber
until 4 a. m.
They clearly showed the fatigue of the
long session, lasting from Saturday noon,
and their ranks were too thin up to 11
o'clock to accomplish anything beyond
informal business. By that time there
were few vacant seats on the floor and
the galleries were literally packed, the
crowds filling the Senate, pushing into
the aisles and overflowing in long lines
down the corridors and stairways.
Many members of the diplomatio corps
occupied the gallery reserved for them.
By 10 o'clock the last formalities of/the
two remaining appropriation
naval and general deficiency—wer* con
sidered and started to the executive
There was no disposition to keep up
the debate and two efforts to cotnsi'der
questions affecting the Bering Sea were
cut off by objections. A feature, of the
last moments of the session was the
tumultuous laughter which greeted the
announcement of Mr. Voorhees of the
committee to wait on the PresVdent, that
the latter tendered his congratulations to
Congress on the close of their'labors.
Vice-President Stevenson closed the
session with a few well choaen words as
he stated tho work of tho Fifty-third
Congress passed into history.
Close of the Session In the Lower Branch at
Washington, March 4.—At 8 o'clock this
morning when the House re-convened in
its final session after a four-hour recess
there were exactly eleven members on the
floor. The speaker was at his post. All
looked tired and worn out. In the public
gallery opposite the speaker's chair were
half a dozen belated visitors who had re
mained all night, and in tho private gal
lery a solitary female held the fort. Bhe
looked bedraggled but was evidently de
termined to sit it out. Otherwise the hall
was deserted.
Mr. Baker, Republican of New Hamp
shire, had the honor of passing the first
bill of the final session. It was a bill to
pay a war claim of Margaret Kennedy,
amounting to $4,000. The husband of tbe
beneficiary had been a well known tiguro
about the capitol for years.
Every morning he was to be found at
one of the doors with his pockets full of
apples dealing them out to members and
appealing for votes for his bill.
Mr. Dockery was on the watch looking
after Uncle Sam's strong box, but be al
lowed several bills to go through by
unanimous consent. One by one the
members arrived and the galleries began
to till.
At 9 o'clock. Chairman Sayres, of the
appropriation committee, entered the hail,
Although he has been almost constantly
at work for forty-eight hours, he was
buoyant and of light step, overjoyed thai
the last appropriation bill had passed.
Orosvenor, Republican, of Ohio, caused
the first Hurry by a sharp speech, con
tending that the Republicans were the
true friends of bimetallism. The repeal
of the Sherman act, two years ago, he
said, had accomplished more than any
other influence to bring about the hopeful
condition for silver we now observe the
world over. He predicted great result*
