VE WYORK, July 26:?"Of all the men In America who hare been strenuously opposed to International marriages, I have been th? most radical. Had you told me a year ago that'my daughter would marry a tltled'forelgner, I would have laughed at the prediction as preposterous. "But It Is actually, going to happen, and with my consent. The Duke Is a decent chap. It Is true that he Is a gentelman of.leisure, but he has no bad habits and no debts. "His Income Is sufficient to support Elsie. If it were not he wonld not get any money from her. He would have to look out for himself. He did not aSk' me for any, and die would not have got any If he had." So spoke Charles A. Moore, president of the American Protective Tariff League, as he stepped off the Oceanic yesterday, and was asked about the engagement of his daughter, Mary Elsie, to Don Marino Torlonla, who comes of one ot Rome's most famous families and hears, among others, the titles Duke of Poll, Duke Gundagola and Prince of Ulvttalla-Dossl. While Mr. Moore talked with reporters, Mrs. Moore' and Miss Moore, together with the young Duke, who accompanied them on the Oceanic, hastened away In an automobile. They are going to the Moore country home, at Belle Haven, near Greenwich. The Duke Is a tall, handsome man 01 aristocratic appearance. When Mr. Moore bad assisted his wife, daughter and future son-in-law into the car he resumed his talk. "Tes, It was a love match," he said. "Love at first sight, I believe. They met In Venice two years ago ? you know what a romantic place that is. No, sir, I never would have believed that I would ever become the father-In law of a titled foreigner. I guess the laugh Is on me." The Duke's family belongs to the] original family of Torlonla, and Is related to hte highest Roman aristocrats, such as the Prlnce3 Chlgl, Orlslnl, Dorla, Paufill, Barbarlna, Colonna. Stigiana and the Dukes Sporgla and Ceslarrln. No Case Against Official. GRAFTON, W.
