WEDDINGS and engagements 1
have been the only topic of I
interest in social circles dur
ing the past week.
The engagement of Miss j
Delmas, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. D. M. j
Pelmas, and Lionel Fitzgerald-Kennv, tel- I
t-fjraphed from London the other day, was
a delight as well as a great surprise to the j
many f;iends of the young lady in this i
Miss Delruas is the youngest daughter of !
P. M. Delmas, the attorney, and a grand- j
daughter of the late Judge Joseph S. Hose, |
who died in this City a few years ago. Her
eldest sister is the wife of William S.
Barnes, the District Attorney of San Fran
cisco. Mrs. Delmas and her two Uaugh- j
ters, Miss Antoinette Delmas and Miss J
Josephine Delmas, left a little over a year j
ago for Europe.
The ladies had been living very quietly
in Paris, with occasional trips to Italy and
the south of France. It was while tour
ing Italy that they made the acquaintance
of Miss Kenny, sister of the harpy groom, j
Mr. Kenny was first introduced to Miss
Delmas in Paris.
The groom's family is one of the oldest
in Ireland. The original Hugh de Nugent
went to Ireland es the Baron of Delvin in
1215. In 14fXj a descendant was com
mander of the forces in Ireland as Lord
Delvin. In 1681, Richard, the fifteenth
Baron, was created an Earl. The mem
bers of the family were all prominent in
the army and on the bench during the
past two centuries. The present Earl of
Westmeatk was Baron in IS7O. He has ?
two brothers and four sisters living. He
is the eleventh Earl. His brother William >
was born in 1871, and his brother Gilbert in !
1880. His eldest sister was barn in 1866.
Lionel Fitzgerald-Kenr.y is a direct i
descendant by a younger son of the eighth !
Earl, William Thomaa Nugent, who was j
also known as Lord Riverston. The mother j
of the groom died in 1879.
During their stay in Paris the Misses Del
mas have been devoting much of their time j
to the study of languages and to literature, j
Visiting the various art galleries has been j
for them a source of constant delight as !
both young ladies have most artistic capa- ]
The wedding will take place in a London j
church on Thursday, the 21st inst., and will !
be a quiet affair, only the relatives of the ■
two families being present at the cere- ,
mony. The young couple will then make '
a tour of the Continent. They will reside j
on the estate of the husband in Ireland. |
Mrs. Delmas and Miss Delmas will pre- i
sumably remain another year in Europe be- i
fore their return to California.
The other engagement which has not
only interested but astonished the world j
of society is that ot Miss Isaoel McKenna !
and Peter Donahue Martin. The young |
couple have been engaged for the pa«t !
month, and it wa3 not intended to an- j
nouuee the betrothal to the friends until i
the 25th, the date of Mr. Martin's return
from the south, but it inadvertently be
came public.
The young lady who is to be the bride of
Mr. Martin is the eldest daughter of the
Hon. Joseph McKenna, Judge of the
United States Circuit Court of this City.
When her parents left Solano County for
Washington, D. C, where Judge McKenna
served four terms as Congressman, Miss
McKenna accompanied them, and entered
the convent at Georgetown, where she
graduated with honors, the first of the
class of ".ft.
When her father was appointed Judge of
the United States Circuit Court by Presi
dent Harrison the family moved to San
Francisco, and Miss McKenna made her
formal debut in society here. She soon be
came a great favorite with the younger
society set, and was prominent at all social
Miss McKenna has long enjoyed the
reputation of being one of the beauties of
the younger set. Tall and slender, with
patrician features, she certainly deserves
her well-merited succees.
In addition to her many charming per
sonal traits, Miss McKenna has rare men
tal attainments. She is one of the best
read of all the society girls, and the honors
that she bo deservedly won in college she
has maintained in her brilliant social
Miss McKenna made her debut in so
ciety three months ago at a small tea
given by her parents at their residence on
Franklin street. The young debutante
•was an immediate success. Her charm
ing manners, especially her low, sweet,
well-modulated voice, endeared her to all
who met her, and no entertainment was
considered complete without her presence.
Peter Donahuo Martin, the happy man,
is the eldest son of Mr 3. Eleanor Martin
and of the late Edward Martin, one of the
early pioneers of California, who died
several years ago a multi-millionaire. He
is also the nephew of the late Peter Dona
hue and of the late ex-Governor Downey
of Los Angeles.
Mr. Martin received his early education
in California, and then went to the George
town College, near Washington, D. C,
where he graduated a few years ago, and
then returned to thia coast to take active
charge of the estates of his father and
uncle, Governor Downey.
He is at present in the south, where he
manages the Downey estate, with head
quarters at Los Angeles. He also has a
large undivided interest in the Steams
ranch, and manages that large tract of
land, as well as rhe Warner ranch, sitn
a»ed in San Diego County, near the Mexi
can line, and embracing hundreds of
thousands of acres. At present he is at
the Warner ranch with his younger
brother, where he went a week ago.
With all his close attention to business
lie has been quite a favorite in society
circles in this City. He is a member of
the University and Burlingame clubs, and
uikcs an active part in outdoor exercises.
He has played in several poio games, is a
good tennis-player, and has been promi
nent in the gatherings of the Friday-night
Cotillon Club and other society functions.
The date has not yet been set for the
weddinz, but it is stated that it will be
celebrated early in the summer.
Although the wedding of Miss Hannah
Williams and Walter Scott Hobart is to
be an extremely quiet affair, and the
guests who will witness the ceremony
have been limited to twenty-eight in all,
including the family, interest in the nup
tials of the charming young couple is un
limited, and the community at large unites
in wishing them ail possible joy. The
Williams cottage at Fan Rafael, where the
wedding is to be celebrated, is an ideal
home for a marriage. Honeysuckles and
fragrant, climbing roses almost conceal
the outward architecture and nil the home,
with its hospitable open doors and case
ments, with a delicious fragrance.

How the Quarrel Between
Cleveland and Hendricks
The President Failed to Carry Out
Agreements Made When He Was
bat a Candidate.
"But can Thomas afford to accept?"
Mrs. Thomas A. Hendricks asked me
when I read a telegram to her announcing
the nomination of Mr. Hendricks for Vice-
President on the ticket with Grover Cleve
land. Indiana Democracy had been wild
with excitement for months in anticipa
tion of the nomination of Hendricks for
President. Cleveland and others had been
mentioned, but the Democrats of the
Hooaier State knew but one man in all
America who was fit, worthy and entitled
to be the National party's standard-bearer,
and when the second place was given to
their favorite, in the bitterness of their
disappointment they asked as did Mrs.
Hendricks, "Can Thomas afford to ac
This was in 1884 when Grover Cleveland
gave the old leaders an exhibition for the
firrt time of his consummate skill as a
political mixer and manipulator. That he
was adroit on that occasion there is no
doubt whatever, but then he has
been adroit enough on every oc
casion since that capture of the party
to do about as he liked and I have
watched with considerable interest his
methods. Cleveland is not the stubborn
and self-willed politician that some sup
pose him to be, but he is all that and a
good deal more when wearing the robes of
office. The immense majority, nearly
200,000, he received when elected Governor
of New York was misunderstood by him.
Inste ad of understanding it as a rebuke to
the Republican ring he looked upon it as
an expression of the confidence of the
people in himself, such as no other man
ever received, and it so turned his head
that he soon came to the conclusion that
Providence had sent him into the world
to rule mankind and that mankind could
not get on without him, but that did not
binder him from studying the ins and outs
of practical politics, nor to overlook the
sleek methods of Tammany.
But this is a digression, although it
serves to lead tip to revelations of the
man's true character. Mr. Heiuiricks. who
was himself a thorough, but an honest,
politician, made an analysis of Cleveland's
methods to capture the nomination for
President, which convinced him that for
his own good he had better have an under
standing with the head of the ticket be
fore accepting second place. Pressure was
at once brought to bear upon Mr. Hen
dricks to accept, for, it was urged, he
would have to pull the ticket through, if
it ever got through. But the wily old
Indianian said to tnern all, "Give me time
j to think it over." Upon his return from
the Chicago convention I called at his
! residence at Indianapolis, and when I
1 asked when we might expect his letter of
acceptance, "I will tell you," he said, "but,
as they say, 'not for publication.' I do
not know that I shall accept at all; any
way, not until I have had a clear, positive
and certain understanding with Mr. Cleve
"That is an unusual procedure, is it
; not," I said.
"Perhaps so," Mr. Hendricks replied,
"but I have never met Governor Cleveland.
Some of the' New York delegates to the
convention know him quite well, however,
and after listening to recitals of their ex
periences with him I concluded the wiser
course for me would be to have a confer
ence with him before agreeing to run for
"Of course," I said, "if you have a con
ference there would be no danger of a con
flict of opinion and policy between your
letters of acceptance."
"I am not thinking of that at all," he re
plied, "but I shall not accept the nomina
tion until Governor Cleveland gives me
satisfying assurances that, if elected, the
Vice-President will not be a mere fifth
wheel to a wagon. The office of Vice-
President must be elevated to where its
incumbent will not only be the principal
official confidant and adviser of the Presi
dent, but he must be substantially on a
parity with the President in the matter of
patronage, and also there must be less dis
tinction than heretofore in a social way
between the President and Vice-Presi
Being enjoined to necrecy, of course 1
did not "give it away" to the newspaper I
represented, but I awaited with interest
Mr. Hendricks' return from his conference
with Cleveland. Meanwhile the pressure
that was being brought to bear upon Mr.
Hendricks to promptly accept was becom
ing almost too gr at for a human being to
bear. The "boys" wanted to go to work,
but until Hendricks accepted there could
be nothing to enthuse about.
When it suited his convenience Mr.
Tobacco Manufacturers Out
$10,000,000 in '95.
Prospect of Still Larger Loss in '90.
Great Anxiety in Tobacco Circles.
CHICAGO, 111., May B.— it was reported here
to-day that a large sum oi money had been of-
fered for the tobacco habit cure No-To-Bac
famous all over the country for Its wonderful
cures. This offer, it is said, was made by par-
ties who desire to take it off the market and
stop the sale, because of its injury to the to-
bacco business. General Manager Kramer of
>o-To-Bac, when interviewed at his office 45
Randolph street, said:
v "No, sir. No-To-Bac is not for sale to the to-
bacco trust. Certainly No-Tcßac affects the
tobacco business. It will cure over 200 000
people in 1896, at an average savin? of $50
which each would otherwise expend for to-
bacco, amounting in round figures to $10,000,-

Hendricks journeyed down to meet Cleve
land, and a day or two later it was flashed
over the wires that "of course Mr. Hen
dricics would accept— that ho had never
had any other purpose, and that he and
Governor Cleveland were in perfect accord
as to policy and all else." I met Mr. Hen
dricks soon afterward, whan he told me
that Mr. Cleveland promptly and most
cheerfully conceded that his (Hendricks')
demands were not only reasonable and
right, but that they were entirely in har
mony with his own opinion of what rela
tion the Vice-President should sustain to
the President— "a kind of joint adminis
tration of the affairs of the country," as
Cleveland put ii.
It was not long after the inauguration of
Cleveland and HendricKs before hints be
gan to fall here ana there that the rela
tions between the distinguished gentlemen
were very much strained. To me this was
no surprise, for I knew certain of Hen
dricks' friends did not cct the positions
that were promised them, and not one of
them blamed the Vice-President. I never
believed for a moment that Cleveland in
tended to keep faith with Hendricks, and
so when I next met Mr. Hendricks, which
was in the following autumn, I made haste
to find out how matters stood between
himself and the President. "It would do no
good and might do much harm to publicly
air our differences," Mr. Hendricks said,
"but I will say for your own information,
but not for the public just now. anyway,
that Mr. Cleveland has repudiated every
promise he made at our interview when I
agreed to accept the nomination for Vice-
President. lam grieved at this revelation
of his character, most, however, because
he is sure to wreck the party sooner or
"Do you mean," I asked, "that Mr.
Cleveland is already planning tor a second
"Yes, and not only for a second but a
third and as many more as he can get.
Moreover I am satisfied that he was pre
paring'to get the machinery of the party
in hand for that purpose at the very time
he accepted my terms as the condition of
my candidacy for Vice-President. My
friends are beginning to understand that
it is no fault of mine when tbev are turned
down. But if my name helped in any way
to win the victory of November last surely
I am glad that I accepted the nomination,
for the party's good is the first considera
tion always, but for many other reasons I
regret very much that I uid not promptly
refuse to accept before leaving Chicago.
I think Mr. Cleveland's acts and interpre
tation of Democratic principles will do
great harm to the party."
1 had a suspicion at the time, and not
without good reason, that the agreement
between Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Hendricks
included a promise from the former that
the machinery of the party should be run
in the interest of the latter's candidacy
for the nomination for President by the
next convention, and the vehement man
ner of Mr. Hendricks when he told me of
Cleveland's ambition in that direction re
moved all doubt from my mind. I felt
confident that Mr. Hendricks agreed to
run for Vice-President and carry Indiana
for the ticket under a promise that he
should head the procession four years
later. Ana I may add that, in my opin
ion, it was his betrayal more than any
thing else that sent Mr. Hendricks to an
untimely grave. He was the soul of
honor, and to be betrayed by a friend was
too much for his great and good heart.
The cold-bloodedness of President Cleve
land's plan to break with the Vice-
President wounded Mr. Hendricks deeply,
for it was the dragging in of social and
personal matters in a way that was calcu
lated to establish intensely hostile relations
between Mr. Hendricks and several of the
leaders of the party in Indiana. Ex-United
States Senator McDonald and Mr. Hen*
dricks were good enough friends to work
together for the party's good, but there
was a bitter feud between Mrs. Hendricks'
"set" and Mrs. McDonald's "set," and
under no circumstances could they have
met upon common ground in Washing
ton's social life. All this was told to Cleve
land by a mischief-making friend, who
knew that it was just the wedge the Presi
dent was looking for. Mr. Cleveland had
his strikers give it out that he was ex
ceedingly anxious to give McDonald a high

position of some kind in the administra
tion, so that it could have the benefit of hii
own great ability as a jurist and statesman,
as well as the social influence of his
family. Now, Cleveland never intended
to give McDonald anything, but big
scheme worked so well that Indiana's
social and political worlds were thrown
into the wildest commotion. Naturally
Mr. Hendricks stood by his wife and her
"<jet," as did Mr. McDonald by his wife
and her "set." Then the personal frienda
and political following of Hendricks and
McDonald took sides, and right then and
there Mr. Hendricks' hopes for the nomi
nation of his party for President in 1883
were blasted, his power to control patron
age broken, Mr. McDonald was dropped
for good and all, and Cleveland was
supreme in the command of the Demo
cratic party.
The domestic life of "Thomas and
Eliza," as the intimate friends of Mr. and
Mrs. Hendrick3 were wont to call them,
was an ideal one. There was nothing in
their going and corning that had any rela
tion whatever to aristocracy, yet two more
polished people could not have been found
in America. They were very happy i t
their own companionship, but they were
exceedingly fond of the society of their
friends. This will, in some measure, give
a glimpse of their home Jifo when alone:
I called early one morning to say
good-by before leaving Indianapo i
and found Mr. Hendriclrs in his
shirtsleeves and "tied up" in a.
white apron helping his wife "to clear off
the breakfast table." "To what base uses
may not a Vice-President of the I
States at last come, madam?" I jot;
remarked. "Our girl," said Mrs. Hen
dricks, "was taken ill last night, and
Thomas is helping me with the kitchen
work, as you see." "I rather like it, be
sides it gives me more time to be with
Eliza tnesebusy political times," observed
Mr. Hendricks.
On leaving their house I met a lady, an
old friend of the Hendricks family, and I
related to hsr what I had just seen and
heard. "Yes," she said, "Thomas and
Eliza will always be lovers, and were he
crowned King and she Queen of America,
the simplicity of their home life wouiu
continue." Abmoud.
The Prices of Wine and Grapes Climb
ing Higher Very Rap
Wine experts say the outlook this year,
so far as prices are concerned, is more
promising than it has been for a decade.
In speaking on the subject, John
Wheeler, manager of the California Wine
makers' Corporation, said that the trend
of prices this year will carry them away
above expectations.
"You see," he said, "the figures are
these: The output last year was 9,000,000
gallons; this year it will be 4,500,000. The
annual exports for the last few years have
been 16,000,000 gallons, and the home con
sumption has been 6,000,000 gallons. This
gives a total of 22,000,000, but as this rep
resetits 4,000,000 gallons of sweet wines it
leaves the market demand for dry wines
at 10,000,000 gallons. Last year the wine
men were already drawing upon their ac
cumulated stock, and all they have now to
supply the demand is about 5,000,000 gal
"Grapes have taken a correspondingly
high range. At Glen Ellen and Bonoma
they are offering $30 a ton. In Napa Val
ley they are offering $25 and $30 a ton, but
there is not much of a crop there. In
other places grapes are proportionately
Mr. Wheeler thinks the price of wine is
going over 25 cents a gallon within a short
time. Offers of 20 and 21 cents are already
being made.
