LONDON, June 8. Viscount . Maid
stone, heir of the Earl of Wlnchelsea and
Nottingham, and Margaretta. only daugh
ter of Anthony J. Drexel. of Philadelphia
and London, were married today in fash
ionable St. Margaret's Church, Westmin
ster. The full ohoral service was con
ducted by the Rt. Rev. Wlnnlngton-ln-gram.
Bishop of London, assisted by Rev.
H. H. Heason, Canon of Westminster
Abbey, and rector of St. Margaret'
Though the wedding was shorn of Some
of the special splendor planned, because
of the mourning of the court and the
consequent absence of several royal per
sonages who otherwise would have been
present, , It was still the smartest func
tion of the year.
The bridal party and guests passed to
the church through a long avenue of peo
ple, some of whom mounted railings,
while others had camp-stools in order to
tet a good view. A squad of police was
required to keep the route clear.
The bride, with her Madonna-like face,
never appeared to better advantage. She
was voted the most beautiful bride that
London has seen In many a long day,
notwithstanding that the mediaeval ar
rangement of her headdress was singular
ly trying. Not another girl in London
would have looked well in it.
Miss Drexel wore a bridal veil, a small
one of family lace, bound over her head
like a cap and held down on her eye
brows and the nape of her neck with a
wreath of flowering myrtle. Her train
was of regal splendor.
As the procession marched up to the
altar, the nave of the church appeared
to have a veritable wall of daisies and
lilies. Tall standards of them rose
from every pew, reaching up 10 feet
high, while the altar itself was em
bowered with costly blossoms.
The Drexels and the Wlnchelseas
dlgned the register together, while the
bridesmaids. wearing bandeaus of
daisies Instead of hats, flitted about
srivlng floral favors to the guests. Of
the American bridesmaids, Nellie Post
was much admired, while Mildred Car
ter and Edith Wayne were the most
businesslike in their distribution of

1VH lii's Chum, Old Nevada I'artner,
Vses Kazor.
I-OS ANGELES. June 8. (Special.)
Jack Williams, the story of whose life
is part of the history of this country
and Southern Nevada, lies on a cot In
the Las Vegas Hospital, the victim of an
attempt at suicide. - .
Williams was a partner of Mark Twain
and other notables during the early days
of the Southwest. He won several for
tunes in the mines and lost each in suc
cession and at 70 years of age finds him
self penniless and broken in health.
Brooding over his lot. Mark Twain's
death coloring his thoughts, he suddenly
became overwhelmed yesterday with a
desire to die. Seizing a razor he almost
eevered his right wrist. . The attempt oc
curred at the Fox House, at Las Vegas.
Williams lay bleeding until so weak he
could not rise from his bed.
Believing there was no possibility of
physicians pulling him through, and
wishing to have his old dog brought to
him, he managed to attract attention by
knocking a bowl from a stand. Doctors
believe he "will recover.
Girl Whose letter Caught Kmbez
zler, Regrets She Wrote.
CHICAGO,. June 8. Special.) As Max
Hubenstein was arraigned before the
Municipal Court at the Harrison-street
Police Court, Miss Birchie Hill today
declared she was sorry that she had
written the letter which caused him to
urrender. to the police. Rubensteein is
charged with embezzling $900 from Libby,
McNeelll & Libby. He was returned to
Chicago in charge of a detective. His
case today was continued to June 17.
'I wrote that letter to him in Los
Angeles because his mother and brother
were worrying so about him after he
ran away from Chicago," said Miss Hill.
"And now 1 am sorry. I will not go to
see him and will not testify unless I
am subpenaed. I had other suitors at
the time Mr. Rubenstein met me. He
appeared a gentlemanly fellow and 1
had no idea that he was an embezzler
until after his flight. Any talk that I
would marry him Is absurd."

H. N. Boehmer, Credit Man,
Accused of Irregularities.
District Attorney's Office Hears of
Alleged Shortage, Which Amounts
to Only $2 00 Error in Book
keeping Is lefense.
H. N". Boehmer, confidential credit man,
and bookkeeper for the United States Na
tional Bank of Vale, was yesterday re
ported at the office of the United States
Attorney -for Oregon as being under ar
rest, and charged with violation of the
National banking laws concerning em
bezzlement, false entries in the books,
crooked reports to the Controller of the
Currency and misappropriation of. money.
The alleged shortage was discovered
during an examination of 'the books of
the bank conducted by National Bank
Examiner Good hart. The latter immedi
ately went before a Justice of the Peace
at Vale and secured a warrant for the
arrest, of Boehmer. who was later re
leased under a. bond of $5000. Assistant
United States Attorney Evans will not
proceed in the case until after a com
plete report has been submitted.
Boehmer has been held under the same
statute that formed the basis of the in
dictment under which Jefferson W. Scri
ber. cashier of the Farmers' & Traders
National Bank, of LaGrande, was tried
and convicted. It covers all irregularities
in the conduct of a banking business.
The total of the defalcation alleged
against the bookkeeper of the bank is
only $200. Examiner Goodhart is con
sidered to be one of the coolest-headed
men employed by the Treas
ury Department and one who would
not cause the arrest of an employe of a
bank without justifying circumstances
being in evidence.
Med ford Man Reglns Suit Against
Jackson County Folk.
C. E. Dunning, of Medford, Jackson
County, yesterday began suit in the
United States Court against Sylvia S.
Robinson and R. T. Burnett, the latter
the County Recorder for Jackson
County, alleging fraud was perpetrated
In the trade of certain Oregon and
California lands.
Dunning says he traded 200 acres of
Jackson County lands for zy$ acres of
bearing orange grove land In River
side County, California, and that after
an inspection of the lands it was as
certained that only 10 acres were In
bearing orange trees. He avers that
it will require six years' time and
$2800 In money to plant the barren two
one-half acres. Mr. Dunning asks
judgment for the amount of money in
volved and a restraining order against
recording the deeds of transfer.
D. J. Warren Makes Second Effort
to Keeover for Injury.
The second trial of the personal Injury
suit of D. J. "Warren against the Oregon
Lumber Company, was begun yesterday
in yie United States Court. Warren was
injured by the falling of a trestle near
Inglis. in Columbia County, where the
big Utah corporation is operating a saw
mill and logging plant. Warren contends
that the trestle was defective in construc
tion, and when it collapsed he was so
seriously Injured that he has since be
come partially paralyzed, somewhat deaf
and near-sighted.
The case was first tried In the United
States Court during April and resulted in
a hung jury, unable to agree upon the
amount of damages to be awarded. Wat
son seeks $25,000 damages. The determi
nation of the case will hinge on the re
sponsibility to be attached to a defective
bolt placed in the steel work of the
bridge which, giving way, allowed the en
tire structure to collapse.

which he made good before he was dis
charged. The real charge against him
was not embezzlement, but that of fal
sifying the records, and he was placed
under bond, which was promptly fur
nished. Boehmer maintained that it
was just an error on his part in the
bookkeeping during one month - and

Surreptitious Sale of Inferior Strong
Liquors One Result of Prohibi
tion Boutell Defends
Beer - Drinking.
WASHINGTON. June 8. That v tho
time was not far distant when the
brewers of the country would be found
working hand in hand with the advo
cates of true temperance reform was
the prediction made by Carl J. Hoster,
president of the United States Brew
ers Association, at the opening ses
sion of th 50th annual convention here
today. Representative Boutell, of Illi
nois, made a speech in which he op
posed prohibition, advocated temper'
ance in all things, and declared that
temperance was "closely allied and al
most akin to strength."
President Hoster in his annual address
to the 500 delegates, declared he had no
apology to make for being a brewer and
that he recognized every brewer as i
promoter of "true temperance."
Representative Boutell followed Presi
dent Hoster and was cheered upon his
Introduction to the convention.
' Lessons Gleaned From Elections.
Three lessons, he said, were to be
learned from tho several states that had
put prohibition into effect. These, he
contended, were:
That prohibition did not prohibit.
That when the open sale of mild bev
erages was forbidden the surreptitious
sales of strong spirits of an inferior qual
ity greatly increased.
That there was an appalling increase in
promotion states in the demand for pat
ent medicines'. tonics and narcotic
liquors. He declared that prohibitory
laws, wnetner eilectlve or ineffective,
were regarded by the wisest statesmen
and philanthropists as out of harmony
with the spirit of an ideal government.
"Is the use of beer by the citizen." Rep
resentative Boutell Inquired, "what Lin
coln said it was, "That which is exclu
sively his own business,' or in the lan
guage of the English philosopher Mills,
entirely a 'self-regarding action," or is
it an action injurious to society and there
fore one that the state can forbid?
Individual Should Choose.
"In this country we first reversed the
wisdom of the ages and agreed that the
majority shall not interfere by secular
legislation with any man's religion. Now
we are quite agreed that it shall not en
croach upon the individual in his choice
of food, apparent amusements or occu
pations." He concluded by saying that fortunately
the cause of genuine temperance is ad
vancing rapidly. 1
"Temperance in all things." said he, "is
the amulet worn by all those who suc
cessfully strive for the mastery. It is the
crown of all human virtues. Temperance
is closely allied and nearly akin to
