in this city, Mrs. Edith Boiling Gait,1
widow, will be married' Saturday, De-1

Not since the marriage of President
John Tyler to Miss Julia Gardiner has
there been a wedding of a president
marked by such extreme quiet and seclusiveness
as is to be the case at
this wedding which will join the Wilson
and the Gait families. President
Tyler went to New York to be mar
ried to Miss Gardiner and there at the
Church of the Ascension in the presence
of only a handful of persons he
took unto himself his second wife. At
the coming wedding of another president
of the United States there will be j
present no persons except those of the
immediate families of the two contracting
Only one cabinet officer, Mr. McAdoo,
will witness the ceremony, and
ne not Dy rignt or nis official position,
but because he is the son-in-law of the
president, having married Mr. Wilson's
youngest daughter. When Grover
Cleveland was married in the White
House to Miss Folsom, the wedding j
party was a small one, but included
in it were members of the president's
Dabinet and several other high officers ,
Df government. President Wilson and .
Mrs. Gait have decreed tfcat their ]
union shall be wholly a family affair. ^

Mrs. Gait will be attended by her
3ister, Miss Bertha Boiling of this

irinciDals have many close relatives. ,

a bouquet of orchids, which Mr. Wilson
found out long ago to be her favorite
flowers. She will be attired in
a traveling gown. The ring will be a
plain gold circlet inscribed with the
the initials Of bride and groom.
Mrs. Edith Boiling Gait has been
known for a good many years as one
of the most perfectly gowned women
in Washington. She is a handsome
woman and always dresses in exquisite
taste. Her gowns always have
been chosen with rare care and almost
perfect judgment For some time
Mrs. Gait has been busy in selecting
her trousseau, being aided in this most !
important work by her mother, Mrs.
Boiling, a woman of excellent discernment.
Mrs. Gait's trousseau already
bias arrived in Washington. Its selection
was a matter of months and some
controversies arose as to what might
be called its origin. There were '
stories to the effect that French supoly
houses resented sunnlvine any
;hing through German-American mid- i
ile men. Most of the stories were 5
baseless, and it can be said that al
nost wholly Mrs. Gait's wedding out- .
it is of American origin.
Resume White House Functions.
Dark green and orchid are the pre- ]
lominating hues in the gowns of the
)ride-to-be, for, as has been said, 1
>rchids are Mrs. Gait's favorite flow- ]

jowns, and evening gowns, the latter'
>f which will be seen throughout the (
roming winter when the White House- .
s to be reopened for a series of oldime
entertainments. The four great (
)fficial receptions, which were omitted 1
ast winter, will be resumed, and there i
vill be afternoon teas and many mu- ]
licals. t
President Wilson is the sixth pre3llent
of the United States to marry ai x
ridow. Washington, Jefferson, Madison,
Fillmore and Benjamin Harrison *
carried widows, in one or two cases s
he widow being the second, wife of
he president. John Tyler and Theo- ?
lore Roosevelt each married the sec- ?
?nd time, but their wives had not be- ,
ore been wedded. i

Grover Cleveland did not marry un- t:
1 fairly late in life. He married p
ranees Folsom, the daughter of his
tw partner, whom he had known y
hen she was a little girl at an age i
hen she had called him "Uncle i
leve.'' Mr. Cleveland and Miss Fol)m
were married in the Blue room at ~
le White House.
For a long time it was thought that
resident Wilson wouia De marnea
i the White House. For some reason
* other people took it for granted
Lat Mrs. Gait would prefer a cere- e
ony in the executive mansion. From d
le point of view of womankind it
jemingly is a compelling thing to be
ble to speak of a White House wed[ng
as one of the participants. Mrs. a
alt, however, held to the thought that
woman should be married in her
wn home rather than in that of her c
usband. She did not believe in ^
reaking the American home preceent
in such matters, a world's prece- ^
ent in fact. Washington generally
Dncedes that she showed good taste
1 her quick determination that her b
wn house should be the scene of the P
redding. fi
The wedding of the president of the b

etail and surroundings a most simple

Commoner Tells Men Who Targe
Preparedness That War is
Idle Fear.
The State.
Charleston, Dec. 16.?William Jennings
Bryan, leading exponent of +lie
forces in the United States who are
battling with words against war and
the general program of defense, tonight
brought his message for universal
peace to the delegates of the Southern
Commercial congress in the German
Artillery hall, which was filled
to" capacity. Hundreds were turned
away unable to gain admittance.
Another distinguished speaker of the
evening was William C. Gorgas, surwnn
pfuncrd 1 TT Q A -rrrVi <-\ h-ah /?
OVVU QVUViUl, KJ. -ti,, YTXlVy T> Wli, a
worldwide reputation because of his
conquest of disease in tbe tropics.
The title of the Commoner's address
was "War or Peace." He has been
delivering practically the same address
at many points in the United States
since his retirement as secretary of
state in the Wilson cabinet.
The address by Mr. Bryan injected a
new element into the commercial congress,
which has been giving serious
consideration to the necessity of arming
the United States to repeL all. in- v
vasion. In his address the former secretary
ridiculed the idea of a nation

that the driving out of whiskey to prepare

what he termed the jingo metropolitan
Mr. Bryan was given an ovation toaight
when he entered the convention
aalL More than 100 persons jumped
;o their feet, cheering wildly.
The Commoner was particularly eloluent
and despite the fact that many.
n the audience were opposed to some
>f the policies enunciated lie received
iberal applause on eviery point scored
n favor of peace. The efforts of Mr,.
3ryan to secure progressive legislator!
and his constant fight for measlres

Senator B. R. Tillman was present
it the meeting but was forced to leave
shortly after Mr. Bryan began his adIress.
(The senator assured Mr. Bryan,
hat^it was Ms physical condition that
caused him to retire and said that he
*rouid read all that h-e-had to say.
Upon being introduced Mr. Bryan
iaid that it was a great pleasure to.
lave the privilege of addressing the
commercial congress. He called atentjon
to the fact that three United,
states sesators were present to "near
Lis address. "I am gJad to present the
ubject to them and to you" he said
X the outset of his address. "I am in.
leaxty sympathy with all of the ob
ects of your association:," said the
ormer secretary in discussing the
inas of the commercial congress.
In his address tonight Mr. Bryan
id not advocate the dismantling of
the fleet or the disorganization of tile
rmy. He did vigorously oppose the
ncrease of these two fighting wings
f the government services. At one
one in Stfs addtes& tha former secreary
said, "And I so much believe in
he right of the people to nave wiat
hey want that I admit the right of
he people to go to war if they really
rant, but I feel as a North Carolina
? 14 4-1*^4.
ongressman expressed nini-seii,
f we are to "have war, it would be beter
for the people to rote it upon thern'r
elves than to have others vote it on
hem. "I believe that the women,
houfd vote on all questions, but if they
ote on onry one it ought to be an eiecion
which decides the issue between,
eace antf war.*
Mr. Bryan's references to President
Tilson were in a very friedly tone.
