The Ceremony Terfonned By Three
Catholic Priests-The Affair a Model
Admiral Dewey was married
to Mrs. Mildred M Hazen, Thurs
day morning at TO o'clock at the
rectory of Father Mackin as
sisted by Rev. Joseph H Foley
and Rev. Sidney Hurlbut, three
priests of the Catholic church.
Father Mackin is the pastor of
Mrs. Hazen and Rev. Foley is
assistant pastor. A special dis
pensation had to be granted to
the bride to marry the admiral,
as he is not a Catholic.
The whole affair was very
simple. Beside the three priests
the mother, Mrs. Washington
McLean and sister, Mrs. Gen.
Ludlow only Mr. Caldwell, the
Admiral's secretary witnessed
the ceremony which took but five
minutes including a most im
pressive address by the priest
before the real ceremony.
Breakfast was served at Mrs.
McLeans and the bridal
party went to New York.
The whole affair seems to have
been a model of simplicity.
Laid To Rest.
The funeral of Mrs. Elizabeth
Gibson was held at the First
Presbyterian church today (Fri
day) at 11 o'lock by Rev. W C
Alexander, assisted by Rev. J C
Davis. A large number of
friends attended the services.
The pall-bearers were Messrs.
Richard Gibson, i William Gibson,
TM Odell, Jno. P Allison, Frank
Smith, and A B Young.

Good Enough Plan.
The company operating a
trolley car line between New
Britain and Berlin Conn., has
pii: on a "jag" car. It appears j
that there is nothing to drink in j
Berlin and citizens who po to
New Britain to quench their
thirst are apt to take too much.
The "iac" car leaves New
Britain every evening at 10 ;
o.clock and drunkou men are not j
allowed to ride on any other.

Two Who Escaped From the Raleigh
Pen Bagcred Again.
A Washington dispatch of the
Chief Wilkie, of the Secret
Service, was this evening noti
fled of the arrest at Dalton, Ga.,
of Frank Morse and W L Good
win, expert counterfeiters, who
have been doing business all
through the south. With these
men was taken their entire out
fit, including a number of coun
terfeit coins. Moarseahd Good
win escaped last August from
the Raleigh penitentiary, where
they were serving terms of im
prisonment for counterfeiting.
Morse was arrested at Mobile
January 13, 1898, together .with
David N. Pierce, and something
over 2,500 in counterfeit $10
silver certificates wns captured
from him. Morse was convicted
and sentenced June CO, 1898, to
a term of ten years in the Ral
eigh penitentiary and fined
Goodwin was arrested at At
lanta July 22, 1896, with one F J
Lewis, and a number of counter
feit coins and contraband appa
ratus were captured.
November 2, 1897, Goodwin
sat in the court room throughout
the trial of his partner, Lewis,
but when his ease was called at
the conclusion of Lewis' trial,
Goodwin had disappeared. His
bond was declared forfeited and
a bench warrant issued for him,
upon which he was shortly after
ward arrested, and on June 15,
1898. was sentenced to a term of
three years in the Raleigh peni
tiary. Two Freights Collide
A head-end collision oc
curred on the -Southern at Toc
coa, Ga. Thursday night between
two freight trains. Several of
the men were hurt but no one
was killed. The engines wore
practically new and were ruined.
It is said that the engineer
on the south-bound was asleep
and running at the rate of 60
miles an hour. It was far from
the worst that might have been.

CAN'T ACCOUNT FOR WHDIS.
The Newspaper Cannot Hope to Flease
We knew a man once who
stopped his paper, and ordered
out his ad., because we failed to
note the fact that he had bought
and improved a ten-acre tract.
Mr. Jones regards it as a per
sonal offense if his local paper
happens to miss noting the fact
that he has been out of town for
a few days. Mr. Smith, on the
other hand, is greatly offended
because you have the imperti
nence to mention his departure
for a coast resort. Mrs. Brown
is delighted to have her after
noon tea written up, smiles
sweetly and orders 50 cents'
worth of papers, if you give a
list of the guests and a descrip
tion of the decorations. Mrs.
Gray, however, regards any at
tempt to find out about her soiree
as meddlesome and insulting, and
shims the door in the face of
your society reporter.
Now it is tolerably plain, even
to a layman, that no paper can
be conducted so as to please all
such parties any more than it can
at the same time satisfy its read
ers who want full accounts of all
the murders and scandals and
those who think everything of
that sort should be omitted, and
most of the space devoted to
reports of sermons, Yr. C. T. U.
meetings, church socials and pro
found editorial disquisitions on
the merits of theosophy or the
claims of the .warring factions of
, the Christian Scientists.
' There seems to be only one
course for the legitimate news
paper to pursue, and that is to
publish the news and publish it
on time. If you wait for the con-
; sent of all parties interested be-
I fore publishing a good item, it
will be musty before your read
ers ever see it. Every well reg
ulated newspaper office needs a
srood man to kill items, as well
' as a man to gather them; but in
general anything that is actual
news, that the public is inter
ested in and has a right to know
about, should be published, no
matter if it does occasionally dis
please "people. If a newspaper
, is accurate and fair in its news
1 reports, it can afford to laugh at
I the idiosyncracies of human na
ture, and go on its way rejoicing
that the people will read an en
terprising paper, and that the
live business man will advertise
in it. Riverside (Cal.) Press.
