BIRMINGHAM STATE HERALD.
VOLUME 2i: BIRMINGHAM, ALA., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1893. NUMBER. 389. ISRAEL KENTUCKY IS LOST But Jacob (Joseph Blackburn) Is Saved, MISSISSIPPI IS ALSO SAVED Ohio Went Almost Unanimously for General Bushnell. GARFIELD’S SON ELECTED SENATOR New York Voted Two to One In Favor of Issuing Nine Million Dollars Worth of Bonds for Internal Canal Improvements. Louisville, Ky., Nov. 6.—The political landslide struck Kentucky yesterday with sufficient force to reduce the normal democratic majority almost to the van ishing point, if it has not disappeared. The secret blanket ballot made the re turns provokingly slow, while several counties could not be reached by tele graph, but enough were received to indi cate that the vote for governor will be close between P. W. Hardin, democrat, and W. O. Bradley, republican. The vote was light throughout the state and shows a general democratic loss, not only for Hardin, but for the entire democratic ticket. Hardin was scratched consider ably in some counties, but in a few he ran ahead of his ticket. Returns from sixty-three counties, outside of Louis ville, complete or estimated, give Hardin 68,662 and Bradley 67,442. In Jefferson county (Louisville) the vote complete is: Hardin, 15,796; Bradley, 21,393. For lieu tenant-governor, Tyler, democrat, re ceived 15,444, and Worthington, republi can, 18,108. Other candidates received about the same vote. This shows that Hardin was not scratched, but that the democrats remained at home or voted the republican ticket. There are fifty-five counties to hear from, a majority of which usually give large democratic plu ralities. Scattering returns from about half of these counties show democratic losses, and It is considered doubtful whether Hardin can come to Jefferson county with a vote sufficient to overcome the re publican plurality of 6597 here. The greatest surprise of the election is In the probable control of the lower house by the republicans. The returns Indicate the election of fifty republican represent atives, forty-one democrats and nine doubtful. The democrats elect nine and the republicans nine senators, but the hold-over senators will give the demo crats a majority in the senate and prob ably on Joint ballot. The closeness of the legislature will make Senator Black burn's re-election doubtful. In Louisville the republicans made almost a clean sweep- They elected all the aldermen, a majority of the councllmen and three park commissioners and four out of seven school trustees. George Durelle defeated Judge George B. Easttn, the present in cumbent for judge of the state court of appeals, by 2349. Louisville, Ky., Nov. 6.—The republi cans are less surprised tonight than are the democrats by the result of the elec tion in Kentucky. When the detained returns began to come in today Chairman Norman of the democratic committee conceded the election of W. O. Bradley as governor and the entire republican state ticket by a plurality ranging from 6000 to 12,000. Mr. Hardin also gave up the contest. Returns on the election of members of the legislature are Incom plete, but indicate that the democrats have elected forty-nine and the popu lists one, which will make the house a tie, provided the republicans elect rep resentatives in unreported counties, which are generally republican. The democrats will have a small majority in the senate. OHIO. Columbus, O., Nov. 6.—Tauter election returns today do not materially change the result In Ohio. With two senatorial district and one county In doubt the re publicans have eighty-three representa tives and twenty-nine senators out of 112 representatives and thirty-senators. The plurality for Bushnell, republican, for governor, will fall between 90,000 and 100,000. It is genertally conceded that the result has placed Governor McKinley on solid ground In Ohio for support for the presidency next year. The result shows that he and his friends loyally sup ported the Foraker faction and the gov ernor has earned and will receive the earnest support of the Foraker faction next year. The state of Ohio wilt now have two republican senators at the same time, which has not happened before since the war except for a brief space from 1865 to 1S69, when Ben Wade-and John Sher man held seats together In the upper branch of congress. This afternoon Chalman Kurtz of the state republcan committee claims 114.0W plurality for Bushnell and a majority on Joint ballot in the legislature of eighty seven. The house, he says, will contain eighty-eight republicans and twenty-two democrats. Two members are yet in doubt. The senate will contain thirty re publicans and six democrats. One mem ber is still in doubt. NEW YORK. New York Nov. 6.--Corrected returns do not diminish the size of the republi can victory. In this state the plurality is close to 80,000. Thirty-six republican senators and fourteen democrats have been elected and the assembly will stand 102 republicans to 48 democrats. In Brooklyn, which went 5000 democratic on the state ticket. Wurster, republican, has been elected mayor by 2200 on the face of the returns. P. J. Gleason claims to be elected mayor of Bong Island City by less than 700 votes. Clarence Lexow is returned to the state senate by over 300 plurality, and Henry J. Goggeshall, who was refused a nom ination by the republicans and indorsed by the democrats of the Sixty-fourth dis trict. wins, with over 4000 votes to spare. The vote for bonding the state to tho extent of $9,000,000 for canal Improvement has been Indorsed about two to one in fa vor of the proposition. In New Jersey John W. Griggs is elect ed governor by 12.536 plurality over Alex T. McGill, democrat, and six of the coun ties which elected senators returned re publicans. The lower house, which was elected, will stand: Republicans 41, dem ocrats 19. In Massachusetts, with one county in complete, Greenhagle, republican, for governor has a plurality of 64,480. The entire state ticket Is elected and both branches of the legislature will be strong ly republican. Pennsylvania capped the climax by go ing republican by 161,914. .New York, Nov. 6.—Returns up to mid night materially increase the republican plurality in this state. In all but half a dozen counties the figures have been filled with county clerks and the results compiled from their figures give Palmer, the republican for secretary of state, a plurality of 90,000. In nearly every coun ty the actual republican vote is heavier than the estimate of last night Indicated. The standing of the next senate will be thirty-six republicans and fourteen dem ocrats. The house will have 103 repub licans a*id ' forty-seven democrats. In the Thirty-fourth assembly district of this city and In the Seventeenth sena torial districts there are close contests, which may sllghtlv change the result. The proposition to bond the state for 39, 000,000 Improvement on canals has been carried by a large majority. In New Jersey tne republican plurality has grown until the latest returns give the state to Griggs, republican for gov ernor, by 26.700. The Jersey legislature will stand: Senate—republicans 18, demo crat' 3; assembly—republicans 43, demo crats 17. NEBRASKA. Omaha, Neb., Nov. 6.—Scattering re turns this morning from the rural dis tricts indicate that Norval, for supreme judge, has about 15,000 plurality. This city and county have gone heavily repub lican. Judge C. R. Scott, whose career has been familiar to newspaper readers for his imprisonment of Editor Rosewater of the Bee, has been replaced in spite of the opposition of the entire bar. He is actually running ahead of his ticket In many districts, the attacks upon him having apparently helped him. Omaha. Nov. 6.—Later returns only em phasize the republican triumph in the cities and counties. Norval, republican, for Judge of the supreme court, has been elected by a plurality over Maxwell, pop ulist, which may reach 25,000. Th pop ulists in ulmost every county, and even the democrats made a better showing. The plurality of Capt. W. J. Broatch, re publican, fur mayor, is about 1000 over Brown, and the remainder of the city re publican ticket is elected by from 300 to 500 plurality. The county ticket has been elected by a large plurality, and every re publican candidate for judge of the dis trict court has been elected. Judge Scott, the famous criminal judge, who has been bitterly criticised by the lawyers and press of this city, ran ahead of his ticket although there were bets made that he would be defeated by 2500. Omaha, Neb., Nov. 6.—Returns from the interior show that Maxwell Is gain ing in some places over the vote for Hol comb of two years ago. Norval's plurali ty will not be as great as was at first supposed, and will probably be below 5000 over Maxwell. It Is possible fhat Maxwell will win if he runs as well as he has been running in the interior coun ties. MARYLAND. Baltimore, Nov. 6.—Later advices from the counties show that the democrats will retain control of the senate, but the republicans will have a big majority of the legislature on joint ballot. The dem ocrats have elected Bennet in Carrol, Bond in Calvert, Michael In Hartford, Finley In Queen Anne and Jackson In Wicomico.. They already have nine hold over senators and thus have a vote of fourteen in a senate of twenty-six mem bers. Michael and Bennet were elected as anti-Gorman democrats. The republicans had three hold-over senators and yesterday elected Randall in Annerundel, Dobler and Strobridge in Baltimore city, Hopper in Baltimore county, Scott in Washington county, Day in Howard, Dryden in Somerset and Norwood in Frederick. This will give the republicans eleven votes. Both sides claim Kent county. Senators Bruce, Michael and Bennet will vote with the republicans on all question of good gov ernment. In the house the republicans have the votes of Allegheny, Annerundel, Baltimore city, Baltimore county, Cecil, Dorchester, Charles, Frederick, Garrett. Howard, Prince George, Somerset, St. Mary's, Talbot, Washington and one from Kent, a total of sixty-eight. The democratic vote in the house will be but twenty-three. The republicans will have forty-three majority on joint ballot. ILLINOIS. Chicago, Nov. 6.—Nine trustees of the sanitary district of Chicago and two judges of the superior court of Cook county were chosen In yesterday's elec tion, the republicans being victorious. The democrats nominated five trustees for the sanitary board, as did the repub licans, and as there are nine offices to fill only one man could be defeated. Joseph J. Duffy, who received the smallest num ber of votes, was defeated. In the judg ship contest Farlin Q. Ball, republican, received a majority of 30,000 over Morri son, democrat. Tire election passed off quietly, the vote polled being about 120,000 Ibelow that'of last year. KANSAS. Topeka, Nov. 6.—The republicans have elected David Martin to be chief Justice. The result is a great surprise to the re publicans even. Mr. Bristow thinks the total vote of the state was between 250, 000 and 260,000. He estimates Holliday's vote at 75,000. Populist Chairman Brled enthal says the total vote may run as high as 275,000 and not lower than 250.000 He says there is still a populist party in Kansas, and a very active one at that. VIRGINIA. Richmond, Va., Nov. 6.—Returns re ceived thus far show that out of twenty senators to be elected the democrats have elected twelve and the republicans six. The six remaining senators wtll proba bly be three democrats and three opposi tion The democrats have elected slxty •hree of the representatives and the op position nineteen. Of the eighteen leg islative districts now to hear from the democrats will probably elect ten and the opposition eight. Democratic major ity thirty-six: democratic majority on Joint ballot, seventy-four. IOWA. Des Moines, Nov. 6 —The republicans claim the state ticket by 20,000 plurality. The legislature Is overwhelmingly repub lican. MASSACHUSETTS. Boston. Nov. 6.—Complete returns from the state give the vote: Greenhalge, re publican for governor. 185,800: Kendall, prohibition. 87G6; 'Williams, democrat, 121,401. Plurality for Greenhalge, 64,499. UTAH. Salt Lake City, Utah. Nov. 6.-The latest returns Indicate the election of Wells, republican, for governor by 1000 to 1500 majority. Roberts, democrat, for congress, Is probably elected over Allen, republican, by 500 majority. The dem ocrats elected district judges. The Salt Lake election goes to the republicans by decreased majorities. The legislature wilt be safely republican, which Insures two United States senators for that par ty. The populist party cut an Insignifl • cant figure throughout the territory. Salt Lake City, Utah, Nov. 6.—At 8 o’clock tonight the returns indicate that the republicans have scored a great vic tory. They have a majority In the legis lature of twenty-nine on Joint ballot. The republican state ticket was elected by about 1800. Allen, republican, is elect ed to congress by about 1000 majority. The vote on the adoption of the constitu tion is about 35.000 for and about 5000 against. George Q. Cannon and Col. Isaac Trumbe will probably be elected to the United States senate. Garfield’s Big Vote. Akron, O., Nov. 0.—Jams R. Garfield, son of the late president, was elected state senator fropn the Twenty-fourth and Twenty-sixth districts by an enor mounujlurality. The district is normally republican by 10,000. but he has carried it by over 14,000 Running with him on the republican ticket was Frelnd Whit tlesey, who has been state senator for several years. Garfield's plurality is greater than his by 2000. The district which he will represent is almost Identi cally the same as when his father was first chosen in 1859 to the office. A re markable coincidence was the fact that Garfield was nominated on July 2. the fourteenth anniversary of his father’s assassination. He was a graduate of the Columbian law school in New York, and for seven years has practiced law in Cleveland. He resides at Mentor. His wife is the daughter of the late President Newell of the Lake Shore road. He is 33 years of age and closely resembles the late president. TWENTY FIREMEN INJURED. New York’s Chief Will Not Trust His Men In So-Called Fire Proof Buildings Again, New York, Nov. 6.—The big fire at Broadway and Bleeker was still burning at 10 o’clock. Three banks were on fire at one time, the Manhattan, the Empire State and the Old Bleeker Street bank. The eight-story stone building owned by the Manhattan bank is very nearly a complete wreck. It cost $500,000 to build it five years ago. There were about twenty different firms in the place, near ly all of whom will suffer a total loss of their stock and office furnishings. Some of the occupants were the Northwestern Straw works of Milwaukee, Wis.; the Plymouth Clothing company of Minneap olis; the Nutly Manufacturing company of Worcester, Mass., and the Trout Brook mills of Baltimore. Other firms were Berman, Heidelberg & Co., Strauss Bros., Goklstone & Steinberg, and the Salisbury Manufacturing company, Qudebrode Bros., and Duffy & Co. The building was said to be fireproof, but Chief Bonner said he would not again trust his men In so-called fire proof buildings. Chief Reilly and Lalley were injured in the fire and about twen ty firemen were more or less hurt. All are reported as doing well. The Empire State bank is & total wreck. The whole building was burned to the ground. It was a six-story brick structure and was occupied by the bank, the New York Feather company, the Hect company, William Bourke and the Consolidated Express company. The buildings below 368, 366 and 364 suffered greatly. Adler’s great glove company lose nearly all, also does A. L. Simon & Co., feathers; the J. F. Goodrich company, carriages; the E. B. Goodman & Co., flowers, and H. H.' Hofhelmer & Co. The total loss Is In the neighborhood of $750,000. Individual losses cannot be fixed yet. The fire was the fiercest in the city for years. It blazed up through half a dozen buildings in less than thirty minutes. The work of the firemen was superb. AN ENGLISH BANQUET. Everything Was Discussed Except the Natial Railway Opening. London, Nov. 6.—A banquet was given here this evening on the occasion of the opening'of the Natial railway, at which Joseph Chambelain, secretary of state for the colonies; Sir Charles Tupper, Ca nadian high commissioner, and all of the colonial agents in London and several members of the house of lords and the house of commons were present. Sir Charles Tupper offered a toa3t in honor of Mr. Chamberlain, referring in com plimentary terms to the secretary. Mr. Chambelain upon rising to reply was en thusiastically received. He said that Great Britain was appraochlng a critical stage In the history of her relations with the Autononist colonies. Upon their opin ion of her policy during the next few years—certainly the next generation— would depend the future of the British empire. This hung together on a thread so slender that even a breath might sev en it. Not long ago statesmen despaired of the possibility of maintaining a perma nent union, foreseeing that a time would come when the colonies, having attained a position of independence, must be ex pected to claim an entire separation. This time had arrived sooner than had been expected. These great communities had taken rank with the nations of the world. He did not suppose that the Idea compelling them to remain in the empire was within the range of intelligent spec ulation. Yet, notwithstanding the time has come for these conditions to be ful filled. the expectance of the statesmen re ferred to has not been realized. As the possibility of a separation had become greater the desire had become less until it no longer existed. Great Britain, on her part, was prepared to do all that could fairly be expected of her. The mother country rejoiced greatly at the wider patriotism, embracing the whole of Great Britain. He believed that the slender thread of which he had spoken was capable of carrying a force of sen timent and sympathy which would be a potent factor in the histories of the world—just as a slender wire would carry an electric force capable of moving ma chinery. He heard on all hands that im perial federation was a vain, empty dream. He would not contest this opin ion. but men must be blind who did not see that It was a dream that Impressed Itself on the mind of the English speak ing race—the sort of a dream which somehow or another became eventually unaccountably realized. The sign of, the time was already in the direction of such a movement. He concluded with an, appreciative reference to the affect on* African colonies. Sir Charles Tupper in proposing hi^. toast to Mr. Chamberlain said that he and his colleagues had learned of the ap pointmnent of that gentleman to the po sition of colonial secretary with sincere pleasure. He heartily thanked the secre tary for the share he had taken In the settlement of the Atlantic fisheries cotn m'ssion. There was no greater field than the colonial office for exercise of the. abil ity of the great statement of the day. a strong minister In a strong government. Home Shaken Again. Rome, Nov. 6.—This cljy was again visited by an earthquake at 3 o'clock this morning, though the shock was not by any means as severe as that of last Friday morning. LONG LOST RECORD FOUND Was the Book Containing the Acts of 1837. IT IS HID FROM THE YANKS When It Was Thought the Capitol Would Be Destroyed. DEMOCRATS WERE NOT SURPRISED Over the Result of Tuesday’s Elections. Captain Johnston Complimented. The Supreme Court—Personal and Local News. Montgomery, Nov. 6.—(Special.)—Mrs. W. B. Mitchell, wife of a traveling sales man of the firm of Loeb & Bro. of this city, while driving In a buggy with her two Infant children this afternoon, was run Into by a runaway team attached to a grocery wagon. The pole of the delivery wagon struck Mrs. Mitchell on the head, killing her Instantly. The vehicle was overturned and one of the children se riously hurt. Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell came here from Troy, Ala., about two years ago. She was about 30 years old. Mrs. Mitchell was a daughter of Judge Alford of Troy, one of the most prominent attorneys of southeast Alabama. George Dyval, the negro driver of the runaway team,Is being held on suspicion of murder. Mitchell Is on the road, It ic not known where. Long Lost Record Found. Hon. H. Clay Armstrong, grand secre tary of the Masonic order In Alabama, recently presented to the governor a long lost and very valuable state record. It Is the big book containing the original cop ies of the acts of Alabama of the session of 1837. Colonel Armstrong found the record recently among the old records of the Masonic fraternity. His presumption Is that during the war, when there was danger of the federal troops destroying the Capitol, the records were hidden away among the archives of the Masons, where they would be assured of safe keeping. When the other records were returned to the capitol after the war It Is supposed that this one was overlooked. It is a venerable looking old book and the acts In It bear the signatures of C. C. Clay, governor, Hugh McVay, president of the senate, and A. P. Bagley, speaker of the house. The Supreme Court. The following matters were disposed of and orders granted In the supreme court today: The state of Alabama, ex. rel., etc., vs. William C. Robinson, judge, etc., Im peachment; motion to dismiss cause de nied; motion to suppress depositions granted, and order appointing commis sioner vacated; motion to withdraw sup pressed depositions denied; case set for hearing on Monday, November 18, 1896. Cleveland Pritchard vs. Patrick Swee neS. from Mobile circuit vonrt, argued anij submitted. Itlttenhouse Moore vs. Barber 'Asphalt Paying company, from Mobile circuit court; motions to dismiss appeal and strike out objections to abstract argued anfl submitted. Harriet E. Vick vs. Benton H. Beverly, from Clarke chancery court; continued by appellant. Mobile Furniture Commission com pany vs. James W. Little, et al., from Mqbile circuit qourt; argued and sub mitted. Mary Cary vs. Henry Holmes, from Mqbile city court; submitted on briefs. Western Union Telegraph company vs. E. Holzborn & Co., from Mobile circuit court; argued and submitted and affirm ed. Fred G. Bromberg ex. etc., vs. Theodore C. Bates, from Mobile chancery court; continued by appellee. George B. Cleveland vs. Adelaide O. D. Edwards, ex. etc., et al., from Mobile chancery court; continued by appellant. Gerald & Chambers vs. Peyton R. Tun stall, from Mobile circuit court; argued and submitted. Henry J. Hunt vs. the Stockton Lum ber company et al., from Mobile chancery court; continued by consent. Hon. Harry Pillaus'and Mr. Frank B. Clark of Mobile were In attendance upon the court, with other attorneys of the Mount Donsun today. In- the Robinson Impeachment case, above the court suppressed the deposi tions upon the grounds that the defend ant consented to the appointment of a commissioner to take the testimony, upon the assumption that all the testimony Would be taken and not that of the state ojily; and because the consent of the der fendant was not in writing in the form ah provided by statute. As a result the witnesses will be summoned to Montgom ery and examined in open court; the trial beginning Monday, November 18, 1895. The 103 volume of Alabama Reports Is about printed, and will go Into the hands of the binder at once. Democrats Not Surprised. The democratic leaders here were not surprised at the result of the elections of yesterday. . The division In the dem ocratic ranks Is charged, by them, with all of the Waterloos. Governor Oates says ho fully expected the defeats, and in a speech at Abbeville yesterday prophe sied exactly what happened. The gov ernor does not believe, however, that the iysuits reported mean the unquestionable defeat of the democratic party In the na tjorfttl elections. He believes these de QatS will open the eyes of many demo sjrate and will illustrate to them that ft House that Is divided against Itself cannot stand. He believes that If pros ftertty continues to bless the country the democrats will still have a good fighting dhance to win In 1896. Captain Johnston Complimented, file Journal pays the following: nice compliment to Captain Johnston: ?Capt. Joseph F. Johnston of Jefferson wi# in the city yesterday. He came down presumably on business, and hav ing Attended to that business queltly re turned in the afternoon to his home. ta-e were no tonus-tongs sounded an inclng his arrival and no bazoo blown notice of his going. He is a plain, dest, unassuming man, essentially a n of the people and for the people, and the people now naturally turn to him in this hour of their peril as their Ifader, as they know him and can trust tjim. Johes—Brown.

About Thirty People Were Killed and Many More Were Injured in the Journal Printing Establishment. Detroit, Mich., Nov. 6.—At 9 o’clock this morning one of the steam boilers connected with the Journal plant explod ed with terrific force and with terrible results. The boiler was located in the southeastern comer of the building, No. 40 West Larned street. The first floor was occupied by the Journal mailing de partment, in which a force of fifteen men and boys are usually employed. The sec ond floor was occupied by the Rogers Typographical Supply company, employ ing seven or eight men; the third floor by Hiller's book bindery, which employed fully 'twenty-five girls and 'men; the fourth floor was occupied by W. Kohl brade, an engraver,‘and on the fifth floor was the stereotype department of the Journal. Only three men were at work In this department when the explosion oc curred. The building No. 45, occupied by John E. Davis & Co., grocers’ supplies, was also completely wrecked. Only five or six persons were at work there, how ever, when the disaster occurred and the loss of life In that building will be small. In an Instant the buildings were a mass of ruins, under which were burled many human beings. The explosion shook the surrounding buildings, and glass in the radius of a block was shattered in all directions, many employes of adjoining establish ments being severely cut by the flying glass. Hair ana Hour arter tne explosion oc curred Are broke out in the debris and the firemen had to suspend the work of rescue and devote their attention to put ting out the flames. Just before the flames started one poor fellow was found with the lower part of his body pinioned tightly. He was conscious and begged the rescuers to get him out. They worked like fiends to release the unfortunate vic tim, but all to no avail. The flames sud denly shot up around him and he had to be left to his fate. Up to noon eight bodies had been taken from the ruins and two more were in sight. Most of the bodies had been burned beyond recognition. The death list will probably reach thirty. The Rogers Typographical Supply com pany, which had just been leased by the Mergenthaler company to William Dun lap, and which was located on the second floor of the wrecked building.was entirely destroyed and the loss cannot be esti mated The destruction of the plant cuts off all supplies to papers using the Rogers Typography machines.

New Yf ^ Nov. 6.—The much talked of weddlny ,'v MissConsuelo Vanderbilt and the Du.c? of Marlborough took place to day In St. Thomas church. The hour set! for the beginning of tho ceremony was 12 o’clock. At that hour the church was thronged with representatives of New York's smartest society, gathered to wit ness the ceremony. The church was gorgeously decorated for the occasion, the floral display being without doubt the most lavish that New York has ever known. # At 12 o’clock the officiating clergy, at tired In their clerical robes, entered from the vestry. Bishop Littlejohn, who offi ciated, was followed by Bishop Potter and Rev. John Wesley Brown, rector of the church, who took their stations at the chancel and waited the arrival of the bride and bridegroom.

Warren then began the wedding march from Lohengrin. The Duke of Marlborough, with his beet man, hla cousin, Hon. Ivor Guest, entered the church from the vestry room and took their posts at the right of the chancel and awaited the coming of the bride. The duke wore a frock suit of dark gray, cloth, a white ascot tie, patent leather shoes and white gloves. The UBhero marched up the side aisles and took thelit stations in front of and at either Hide of the chancel. The bridesmaids led the bridal procession, walking two and two in; tho following order: Miss Catharine Duer and Miss Elsa Bronson, Miss Laura Jay and Miss May Goelet, Miss Daisy Post and Miss Mary Wlnthrop, Miss Edith Morton and Miss Evelyn Burden; Then came Miss Vanderbilt on the arn* of her father and carrying In her left hand a bridal bouquet. The bridesmaids took positions at either side of the chancel. The bridegroom stepped forward and took the right hand of Miss Vanderbilt and led her to the chancel steps. The marriage right of the Episclopal church then followed, Bishop Littlejohn officiating. Immedi ately after he had given his daughter away Mr. Vanderbilt quietly left the church. When the marriage ceremony was over the duke and the bride went to the vestry room and signed the marriage register. At the same time each of the bridesmaids took a basket of nosegays and marched' back up the aisles, distributing them among the guests. As the duke and his bride re-entered the church the orchestra played the wedding march from Tann hauser. The bridesmaids returned to the chancel and the bridal party marched down the aisles, the ushers leading. The bridesmaids followed them and then came the duke and his bride. After them came Mrs. Vanderbilt on the arm of Mr. Guest. The party immediately entered carriages and drove to Mrs. Vanderbilt's house, where a reception and breakfast 'followed. One feature of the wedding which has excited much comment was the fact that few of Mr. W. K. Vanderbilt’s family were Invited either to the church or to the breakfast. Mr. Cornelius Vanderbilt’s house is closed. He and his family are in Newport and will not return to town for a few days. Mrs. Elliot F. Shepard, Mr. Vanderbilt’s sister, sailed for Europe to day. Mr. George Vanderbilt, Mr. F W Vanderbilt and Mrs. William H. Van derbilt were not at the church. The rea son for this absence of the Vanderbilt family Is said to have Its foundation in the coolness between Mrs. W. K. Vander bilt and the Vanderbilt family as the re sult of her recent divorce from her hus band. The fact that Mrs. Vanderbilt did not Invite her husband’s brothers and sis ters to the marriage of her daughter caused much talk but little surprise. The wedding breakfast was served in the large dining room. Eighteen covers were laid at the table of the bridal par ty The service was of gold. Each guest received the customary wedding cake In a small box, having on its cover a coronet and the letters C and M intertwined. One hundred were present at the break fast. They included the clergy, several representatives of the British legation at Washington, the bridal party and their Immediate families and Miss Vanderbilt's nearest friends. A Man and Wife Whipped.
