JOHN'S WAS PACKED OTHER NATIONS COMB IN, TOO J p r TIMES Thousands Lined the Sidewalks Along H Street and at Dnpont Circle to Get a Glimpse of the Fair Bride Sparkle of Diamonds and Perfume of Flowers in Church and Home Handsome Presents. Perfect spring -weather, blue sky, the scent of flowers everywhere, a shower of congratulations, smiling faces at every turn, toasts to the health, happiness and long life of the bride; such was yesterday. Buch -was the wedding day of Miss Mary "Victoria Loiter, who at 11:30 o'clock, in fit John's Church, before nn immense concourse of friends from far and near, plighted her troth to Hon. George Nathaniel Curzon, of Kedteston, Hall, Lancashire, Member of Parliament from Soutbport, England. Long before the hour set for the ceremony the approaches to the church were crowded with the usual throng of people who con gregate about a church in tho "West End when a fashionable wedding is in progress. If nothing else was to be achieved by those foremost in the throng, they would at least be gratified by a glimpse of the bride in all ber wedding splendor as she alighted from the carriage and walked to the church portico, after the fashion of brides innumerable whose marriages have taken place in historic old St. John's. It was a gay scene that met Miss Let ter's gaze as she drove up to the church, for the showing of colors in the new spring tpilets of those who were not bidden to the ceremony and yet desired to have a glimpse cf the bnde and groom in tills way, was of tlic bravest description. The sidewalks were lined, the overflow of humanity hav ing to contort itself by standing on the oppoBlte side of the way by Lafayette Square and Sixteenth street. All along H street and down Sixteenth street there was a massing of carriages of every de scription of elegance, an array of liveried Coachmen, the gleam of patent leather top boot, a roiubow of cockades on the drivers' hats, the clanking of harness, and the im patient pawing of the restive, perfectly j'oomed horses, held in check while the owners tarried within the church. GREAT CROWDS OUTSIDE. It was small wonder that the crowd out side was constantly receiving additions, as tho sight of the turnouts and the rapidly arriving teams, with their elegantly dressed occupants, was one quite well worth looking at. It was ju8tsuchanotherapnng morning, by the way, one year ago, that another and almost as large a crowd collected on the east side of Lafayette square, when themar r.age c r Mjes Elaine to Mr. Truxton Beale was in progress. "Within the church the assemblage of fine gowns andmagntficentcostumeswasaslght to be remembered. Every one present was in the verj bravest of their possessions, and the general effeot in looking over the heads of the company gathered to witness the marriage was that of a gorgeous flower garden. The bonnets were simply Indescrib able, the daintiest, airiest nothings ining inable, orflowers, lace and jet. As an offbet to all this the decorations or the church were mainly of palms, arranged m jCTy'WWliliml '111 CROWDS AT THE CUBZON-LEITER WEDDING. within the chancel with most artistic effect. On ''bereide of the chancel rail, where the br.de and groom stood during the cere meny, and nnally knelt to receive the bless ing of the bishop upon their marriage, there was a massing of the tallest palms, with wt te azaleas rising in front, a mass of Bncwy bloom. The reredos held tall gold chalices filled with Easter lHies. The tall palms waved and rustled with every slightest current of air, a background of graceful artistic green that showed to best advantage the tvory whiteness of the magnificent wedding gown, the full court tra n falling in gleaming folds that swept the chancel steps as the bride knelt with tho groom to receive tho blessing of the char u at the conclusion of the ceremony. ENTER THE WEDDING PARTY. Above the chancel rail the tallest of the palms met and arched over the kneeling couple, the choristers in their white sur plires, each wearing a wedding favor, chanted the choral service to the organ ac ccrrpaniment, and Washington society clad In the typical wedding garments looked on at the ceremony about which so much has been written.talked and conjectured for the last few wcekB. Prior to tho entrance of the wedding party tho choristers sang "Epithalme," from "Romeo and Juliet." In a few mo mcr. ts after this they entered and filed into th chancel stalls chanting Wagner's wed ding hymn, "Faithful and True." Imme diately following the benediction was sung HasdciVHalleluJ ah," followedby Haydn's anthem, "To Thee, O Father, Throned on High" as a recessional. As the choristers passed from the chantry to the chancel stalls they t ere followed by the groom with his best man.

Lyles worked athis trade of plumbing and lived with his mother, Mrs. Robert Per kins, at No. 321 Monroe street. Ho waa regarded as one of the best young men in Anacostia. After the recovery of Lyles' body, about llo'clock yesterday morning by the police boat Joe Blackburn, Coroner Hammett visited Anacostia, and after a most tlior oughinvestigationof the afralrdccided that no inquest was necessary, as the drowning was purely accidental. Indignation Is felt among the friends of the two young people at the sensational rcportB of the accident reported in another paper, in whichitwas alleged thatthenffalr bore evidence ofa double suicide or a quar rel.

As has been expected the resolution to extend the scope of the special bribery investigation com mittee was offered to-night, but there was some surprise when Senator Reynolds did it. He said that his actions on the police bills had been questioned, and the resolution called for an investigation of the bi-partisan police bill. He said he owed this to himself, bis friends, con stituents and colleagues. Senator Gaines said that he did not ob ject to the resolution, but he wauted it understood that he would not permit the side-tracking of the charges of bribery in connection with the firemcns' salary bill. Let the whole matter be examined, but the original purpose was entitled to the right of way.

Concessions Exacted By the Treaty of Peace Extend to European Powers 3y Virtuo of Favored Hation Clause Sussian War Vessels in Japanese Harbors Ordered to Be Ecady to Leave at Short Notice. Yokohama, April 22. Following is the text of a statement issued by the Japanese government, denying the reports that it has concluded an offensive and defensive al liance with China, and declaring that the commercial advantagesSecured by Japan will also bo enjoyed by the other powers under the favored nation treatment: "Misapprehensions ate reported to be current in Europe regarding the terms of the Japane'se-Chinese" treaty. It has been represented that Japan has secured a 2 per cent, ad valorem duty on imports, in stead of a specific duty, and has also formed an offensivo and defensive alli ance with China. "The commercial consesslons obtained by Japan, beyond those- already secured by the treaty powers under the favored-nation clause, comprise the right to navigato the Yaug-tse-Kiang to Chung-King, and also the Woo-Sung river and the canals lead ing to Soo-Chow and Hang-Chow, and tho right to Import machinery and certain goods duty free, and to establish fac to riea. "These concessions arc not exclusive to Japan. They naturally extend to tho European powers in virtue of the favored nation clause. In securing these priv ileges for all, Japan expects the ap proval of all the powers. "The reported offensive and defensive alliance does not exist." An Imperial proclamation just issued exhorts the nation to moderation at the preeeut juncture of the country's history. ORDERS TO RUSSIAN WARSHIPS. London, April 23. A dispatch to the Times from Kobe, Japan, says that all furloughs of officers of the Russian men-of-war at that place and Nagasaki have been stopped. The commanders of the warships have received an order from the Russian legation to hold themselves in readiness to leave at twelve hours' notice. A Berlin dispatch to tho Times says that the Yossisohe Zeitung blames the government for joining France and Russia against Japan. The paper says: "Suppose Great Britain and the United States sup port Japan in refusing to submit to the Russian demands, Germany will become iuvolved In needless complications nd would lose her own trade without earning; Chinese gratitude." TERMS OF THE SURRENDER. London, April 23. In an editorial this morning the Times, after admitting tfcat Japan evidently intends to criple anil humil iate China in a manner seriously a fretting European interests, insists that the diplo matic history of Europe does not bear out the pretenaion that any power or powers are entitled to dictate the terms of peace between the two nations. It adcls: "Great Britain's interests are involved quite as much as Russia's, but we Ond no stipulations in the treaty of peace warrant ing our interference at the cost of exciting the enmity of Japan."

Huntington, president of the Southern Paoific RaBrnad, was arrested to-day on a charge of giving: a free pass to one Frank Stona, in violation of the Interstate commerce law. San Francisco, April 22. C. P. Hunting ton is mistaken as to the cause of bis arrest. It is not Frank M. Stone who Is after him, but the American Railway Union. During the long and bitter trial of the A. R. U. strikers in this city for violations of tho interstate commerce law, Frank M. Stone, a politician and lawyer, was called as a witness for the prosecution. He bad been a passenger on a train stopped by strikers, and his testimony waa wanted by the Government to convict them. At torney Mentieth, who defended the strik ers, cross-examined Stone, and during the cross- examination elicited tho fact that Stone traveled on a pass. The pass is an interstate one, but Stone said he had never used it outside of Cali fornia. After this testimony Mentieth ap plied for a warrant for the arrest or Hunt ington, but it was refused by the acting: district attorney. Finally the Federal grand jury indicted Huntington, and after Government officials had waited in vain for the railroad magnate to come West and be arrested, the warrant was sent to New York to be served.
