•—Mrs. Grover Cleveland and
Thomas Jex Preston, jr., were
married at 10:30 o'clock this
morning by President John
Grier Hibbeu. of Princeton Uni

No preliminary announcement has
been made of the marriage, and the
utmost simplicity was observed in the
The ceremony was performed in
the main drawing-room of President
Hibben's home, the room being
decorated with an extensive bank of
palms and flowers. Mrs. Cleveland
and Mr. Preston stood at the east
end of the room,' while the guests
were ranged along the opposite side.
The servants from the Cleveland
household were also present.

Thomas Preston, of Aurora, N. Y.;
his brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and
Mrs. John Hoppen, of South Orange,
N. J., and his other sister, Mrs.
Florence Preston Jones, of South Or

ing and went directly to "Prospect,”
where Mrs. Cleveland and her family
were already assembled.
The members of Mrs. Cleveland's
family included her debutante daugh
ter Esther; ^er younger daughter,
who came here from school in Con
necticut, and her two sons, Itlchard,
who attends the Exeter Academy^and
Because of the recent illness of Mr.
Preston, the . wedding was private,
the other guests in addition to the
members of the two immediate
famil.es being President and Mrs.
Hibben, Miss Elizabeth Hlbben and
Andrew F. West, dean of Princeton's
graduate school.
The bride wore a simple white silk
gown and carri&l a bouquet of white
Killarney roses.
\ The wedding breakfast was served
at Prospect immediately after the
ceremony. Mr. and Mrs. Preston will
epend the remainder of the winter in

During the afternoon friends from
among the university faculty and the
residents of the town called at

The news of the wedding spread
rapidly about the campus. It is be
lieved that the students will be on
hand to give the couple a send-off if
they are able to find out the time
set. for their departure, which is ex
pected to be late today. The honey

that the younger children will re
turn to school, while Miss Esther will
remain at the Cleveland home with
her grandmother, Mrs. Perrine.
Mrs. Cleveland, who is one of
America’s best loved women, was de
termined to have her wedding sol
emnized as simply as possible. Al
though her engagement aroused a
country-wide interest only equaled by
that of Miss Could, not a word about
the actual arrangements became pub
lic until today.
More Simple Than Gnuld Wedding.
Even,MIsr Gould's wedding was not
marked by the simplicity tliat pre

Cleveland planned.
The marriage is the culmination
of a college romance. Wells College,

Their meeting was remarkable, be
cause Mr. Preston never thought of
entering educational work until he
wan nearly 40 years old. He is now

Studied After Making Fortune.
In the oil business in Newark, Mr.
Preston had amassed a large fortune
when he decided to give up his com
mercial career and study.
He came to Princeton and took a
special course in 1906. It was while
he was studying there that he met
Mrs. Cleveland.
He was graduated in • that year,
and, because of the unusual excel
lence of his work, both graduate and
undergraduate, he obtained at the
ond commencement the degrees of
Lltt. B. and M. A.
Then he went to Weils College as
professor of archaeology and history
of arts. Since Mrs, Cleveland was
an alumna of Uiat institution and
had maintained an active interest in
the work of the college, she and Pro
fessor Preston were drawn together
by bonds of a mutual interest.
Professor Preston has hitherto lived
with his parents in South Orange.
He is a brother-in-law of John J.

Action Is Taken at
Conference of Min
isters Today.
Bids Rev. Bouck White “Stick
to Subject” When He
Rises to Speak.
At a conference of ministers held
today In. the parish house of Trinity
Church in Rector street a committee
of three was appointed to investigate
the local strike of garment workers,
and to place the fa^fs befqre the va
rious congregations Of the city.
A proposal to raise a contribution
Ip 11 ic ' strike fund ' was objected to,
and In Its stead it was agreed to
‘‘admin'ster to the physical needs of
those out of employment" pending
the investigation.
The Rev. Bouck White, curate
of the Holy Trinity Church, of Brook
lyn, after announcing that he rant
to this city to talk from a Socialistic
viewpoint, was requested by Bishop
Edwin S. Lines, of the Episcopal dio
cese, to desist. During the course of
Mr. White's remarks. Bishop Lines
told him bluntly to "get down to the
subject at hand."
When Mr. White took the stand he
first explained h!s arrest in Brooklyn
last week on a charge, of disorderly
conduct. This, he said, was brought
about by his sympathy for the
strikers. He stated that he was
paroled, and would be tried this
afternoon. He explained that he was
going to talk from a Socialist view
point, and started his remarks by
telling his hearers that he was a
Harvard University graduate, and
was the*author of two books, "Daniel
Drew," a study of the psychology of
Wall Street, and "The Call of the
Carpenter, the Life of Christ as a
Spoke with Glnvaaitti.
It was after telling that he re
cently addressed an aud'ence in Bos
ton from the same platform with
Giovanltti, the leader of a strike in
that, city, and while relating the
hardships whfcU, striking ’ laborers
were subjected fmfthat Isis ignites
were construed by . Bishop UJnes to’
be Socialistic, and he was requested
to discuss the matter at hand.
He explained that tbe reason so
many strikers were not citizens of
the United States was because of the
too stringent naturalization laws, and
strenuously denounced the police of
New York city and Brooklyn because
of their sympathy with the employ

He said that he had taken the mat
ter of his arrest up with the police
commissioner and Mayor Gaynor, but
that nothing had ever come of his
The Rev. Bismark Coltorti told of
the suffering in the families of gar
ment workers, and said that many
times, when there was a contageous
disease in a. household, the fact was
withheld from the health authorities
I for fear that members of the family
I would be prevented from bringing
work to their homes. In that way,
he said, disease was spread broad
cast throughout the country.
Bernard Abrams was another
speaker, and his remarks were along
similar lines.
Willing In Arbitrate.
Following Mr. Abrams, the Rev.
Robert Scott Inglis, of the Third
Presbyterian Church, suggested ar
bitration as a means of settling the
differences, and when this question
was put to Mr. Abrams, he replied
that the strikers were willing to arbi
trate with the manufacturers, but not
with the contractors.
The Rev. W. 1. Dawson toiioweu
with the declaration that it was nec
essary first to create sufficient public
interest in the strike, and his motion
to appoint a committee of three to
compile undlsputable facts on both
sides and have the ministers lay them
before their congregations was car
ried and the following were named:
The Rev. M. J. Johnson, of Trinity
Episcopal Church; the Rev, W. J.
Dawson, of the First Presbyterian
Church, and this Rev. G. P. Dough
erty. of St. Paul's M. E. Church. An
other meeting of the clergy will be
held Friday at the parish house.
The Rev. John J. Moment brought
up the question of raising funds for
the strikers, pending the investiga
tion by the committee of three, and
the Rev. Dr. Digits suggested that It
would not be proper for the clergy to
take the part of either side until the
merits of both sides had been gone
into thoroughly. He suggested that
"the phyiscal needs" of the strikers
be administered to, but that nothing
should be done for the "strike fund."
This suggestion met with the appro
val of the conference.
The Rev. Dr. Stubblebine asked If
the Catholic clergy had been Invited
to attend the conference, and when
Informed by the secretary that they
had not been because a directory of
the Catholic clergy was not at hand,
he suggested that an invitation be
tended to the next meeting.
Samuel Levine, who denounced the
attitude of the church toward the
strike situation, was severely ar
raigned by several of the clergymen
after the meeting. The clergymen l
contended that if Mr. Levine did not

WASHINGTON. Feb. 10.—Efforts
to trace unpublished letters that

who is said to have sold the Archbold
letters to the Hearst newspapers.
Blumeling testified that as far as!
he knew, all’ the letters that had'
passed through his hands had been :
made public.
The Archbold letters were brought j
to him in 1904 or 1905, he said, by
Charles Stump and W. AY. Winfield,
and he negotiated the sales to the !
Hearst publications. He sa'd he got
between $8,000 and $9,000, the sum
being divided equally between the j
three men. Blumeling declared he!
had never had any question of con- j
science about the handling of the I
Archbold letters and that his chief j
aim had been to see that they got as
full publicity as possible.

Antarctic Explorer and His Com
panions, Successful in Quest of
Pole, Are Overwhelmed and
Perish as They Turn for Home.
TBE death of Captain Robert F. Scott aud several of the
Pftrt.v wm* iook part in the South Polar expedition, is
reported in a news agency dispatch received here today
from Oamam. New Zealand.
The advices state that tbe.explorer and his party were over
whelmed by a blizzard on iheir return journey from the South
| Pole. The entire )>a||y perished.
They reached the South Pole January IS. 1 Dill.
It is Isdiered here that the disaster did not involve all of the
! Scott parfv of sixty-six. but probably only Scoit himself and the
four others selected by him for the final dash to the pole.
These are »uppos<*d to be Dn. E. A. Wilson, chief of the scien
tific staff: Captain JL. E. G. Oates, of the luniskilling Dragoons;
Lieutenant H. K. Bowers, of the Royal Indian Marine, the com
missariat officer, and Petty Officer E. Evans, of the British Royal
1 Navy.
Captain Kentt's party reached ibe exact (mini where Roald
Amundsen planted the Norwegian flag at the South Foie.
They found there ibe hut constructed -and left behind bv
Amundsen's party.'. *
These facts were recorded in ibe documents found on the
bodies of the dead explorers when they were recovered.
The Antarctic steamer Terra Xt*v#. on which Scott and his
paiiu sailed, signalliftl Oamaru as #ihe passed yesterday on her
wa™jto the port of Lwt^toii. She-is expected to arrive . "
Thursday. T^ie vessel was not expected come to these
for a month. ^
The Terra Nova sailed on June 1. 1910. for New Zealand and the South
Pole. It was joined by Captain Robert F.- iScott a few davs later at
The expedition consisted of 2* officers and scientists in addition to a
crew of *3 picked men from the British Royal navy.
Reports were current at the time the Tprra Nova sailed for the Ant
arctic on December 14. 1912 to bring back the Scott party that some mem
bers of the relief expedition had expressed grave doubts as to whether
Captain Scott and his fellow explorers would ever return. No reason tva*
given for these doubts, but they were freely bruited abroad.
Mrs. Scott left London five weeks ago for New Zealand to meet her
husband there.
The last direct word received from Captain Scett himself was brought
by the commander of the Terra Nova from the southern ice regions, when
she returned to Akaroa, New Zealand, on March 31, last year The brief
message was in Captain Scott's own handwriting and said.
“I am remaining in the Antarctic for another winter. In order to eon»
tinue and complete my work."
Captain Scott had shortly before sent oack a report to his base at Mr
Murdo sound, showing that on January 3, 1912, he had reached a point 13*
miles from the pole and was advancing toward his destination.
The dispatch from Oamaru, N. Z., this morning, shows that in fifteen
days he covered the remaining 150 miles, having traveled at the rate of
ten miles a day.
It was on his return that he and his party were overwhelmed by on*
of the terrific blizzards so prevalent in the Antarctic region.
The date of Captain Scott's attainment of the South Pole, January 19,
1912. shows that he reached the goal of his expedition almost exactly one
month after Captain Koaid Amundsen, the Norwegian explorer.
» . apiain munusen s report sem to*.
King Haakon of Norway read:
"Foie attained 14th-17th December,
1911. All well.”
The report of Captain Scott was
destined not to be received by the
wailing world until after his death.
No details had come to hand this
morning as to how the records of
Captain Scott were found, bn that lie
arrived at the pole on that date men
