THE MKEES EKE AIJSENT
They Would Not Uive Their Consent to
the Ccneral's Marriage Tho Wedding
Marked for Its Simplicity.
'I ha Wedding Uu n.
New York, April 6. Perhaps as
simple a wedding- as has ever been
witnessed In tho saore-d walls of SK
Thomas church was solemnized half an
hour before 6 o'clock this evening, when
General Harrison, twenty-third presi
dent of the I'nlted States, entered Into
the holy bonds of wedlock with Sir.

the thirty-six favored witnesses of the

o'clock. As they entered they were re

looking private secretary of the ex
presldcnt, h. F. Tlbbett, and the- sol

of the civil war. Mrs. John K. Parker,

color, an only occasional tjuy Kanter j

Professor William Warren, the j
church organist, rendered a few pre-
Ilmlnnry selections from the great
masters. Still the scene seemed cold
and almost gloomy. One could hardly
realize that a wedding of national Im
portance was about to be solemnized.
It was Just J o'clock when lienernl
Harrison and General Uen.iamin F.
Tracy, ills best man, entered a car
riage at the Fifth avenue hotel and
started for the church, where they ar
rived nt 6.20 o'clock. They entered
through the lectors' residence on Fifty
third street, ami Went directly to the
vestry, where they nwnhed the arrival
Of the bride. (Ieneral Harrison wore a
long frock coat, dark trousers and
white gloves. In the lapel of his coat
was a buttonnlere of lilies of the val
ley. General Tracy wore a frock coat
and striped trousers, und a small bou
ijULt of white violets.
At 5 o'clock Mrs. Dimnilok and her
brother-in-law, Lieutenant John F.
Parker. I'. S. N.. were driven from
their residence. No. 40 East Thirty
eighth street, and reached the church
iU.fc.lS o'clock. They entered by the
main door on Fifth avenue and went
dined to the tower room to the left of
the vestibule, where wraps and coats
were dlH"Prdod. It was n.3i o'clock
when the two large doors leading to the
center aisle were thrown open and the
ushers. -Hide hy side, stood In the pas
sage way. At the same moment Ir. J.
Wesley Urown, the officiating clergy
man, robed In n white cassock, ap
peared from the vestry, followed by the
sexton. The reverend doctor passed
In behind the sanctuary rail, the at
tendant closing the gales after him.
Dr. Hrown knelt In prayer a few mo
ments and then the ever - popular
strains of 'Lohengrin" burst forth and
re-echoed back from the empty stalls
with double volume. Then the door
leading to the vestry on the left of the
altar opened and the silvery locks of
Generals Harrison and Tracy were
seen. There wns an awkward pause
for a minute and the assemblage looked
Inquiringly first at the altar, then at
the rear entrance.
THE BRIDK APPKARS.
Finally, at 5.33 o'clock, the bride ap
peared and fell in behind the ushers.
At the same moment the minister
nodded his head, signalling the groom
to step forward.
General Harrison and his best man
at once came forward and stood upon
the top chancel step. The left hand of
General Harrison was bared and he
carried In his right the left hand glove.
Immediately the bridal procession was
begun. The two ushers walked well
forward and tok a position on the sec
ond chancel step. The bride, leaning
on the arm of her brother-ln-lnw, Lieu
tenant Parker, followed.
Mrs. Dimmick carried no bouquet,
but Instead carried a handsome white
silken prayer book, with an embossed
golden cross on the cover.
As the bridal party approached the
chancel, General Harrison came down
the steps to the Moor to receive his
bride. With a frank movement, she
extended her right hand which the
'gToom clasped In his left. Then the
right hand which the groom clasped In
his left. Then the couple marched up
the stens to the center of tho nltar,
where they knelt a moment In prayer.
General Tracy and Lieutenant Parker
followed, the former standing to tho
riRht of the groom, and tho lieutenant
to the left of the bride. It was a pretty
picture, beautiful In its simplicity. The
reading of the ProteKtnnt Kplscopnl
ceremony was at once hcirun. Hoth
faced the minister and listened Intently
to his words. When the usual question
was propounded to the room, "Wilt
thou have this woman to be thy wed
ded wife." etc., th general responded
in subdued, nlumst inaudible tones.
When the game question was put to
the bride, she answetvd In a clear nius
As the minister uttered the words:
"Those whom God hath joined togeth
er, let no man put asunder," bride and
groom turned about and faced, each

unused glove dangling between his

Harrison and Mrs. Dimmick one were

Dr. Itrown .shook hands with both and
offered bis warm congratulations. The
ex-presldent then extended 1.1s right
arm to his newly made bride, and. to
the soft strains of the "Tannhauser
Wedding March," they pled down the
During the ceremony the Intermezzo
from Mascagni's 'Tavallerla ltustl
cann" was rendered on the oriran.
The moment the bridal pot ty entered
the assemblage arose and rernuined
s-f.nillng throughout the ceremony.
The deepest interest was manifested In
the proceedings and every movement
of the contracting cotil le wns noted.
As the bride nnd groom walked down
the aisle after the ceremony Mrs. Hur
rhion bowed pleasantly to her different
acquaintances. The stern expression
depicted upon her usually placid face
had faded away, and was surplantod
by a bright, cheering smile.
lienernl Harrison's face bore ti calm,
sntlstled expression. '.Phe bridal party
was driven to the residence of Mrs.
Plr.chot. No. 2 Gramercy Park, where
li;rht refreshments were served. Here
the bride and groom donned their
traveling attire. Soon after 7 o'clock
the party re-entered their carriages
nnd were tuken to the Pennsylvania
railroad station in Jersey City. They
boarded the private car of Vice Presi
dent Frank Thompson, which wns
coupled to the regular 7..10 p. m. train
west and the bride and groom left at
once for Indianapolis.
M'KISF.S WERE AP.SENT.
The. fact that General Harrison's
daughter. Mim. McKee, nnd his son,
lUissell P.. Harrison, were not at the
wedding occasioned considerable com
ment. It has been rumored that Mr.
Harrison's family wns strongly op
posed to their father's marriage to Mrs.
Dimmick. While Ihey still retain all
due ntYectlon for their parent, it Is said
they declined to give their tlllal sanc
tion. The honeymoon will be spent in Gen
eral Harrison's home In Indianapolis,
which lias been rclltted and renovated
for the occasion. Later the couple will
go to the Adirondack mountains,
where a cottage has been prepared for
them at First Lake, n the Fulton
The groom's gift to his best man was
a walking stick, which was valued by
General Harrison because of Its asso
ciations. Its history dates back to the
civil war, and General Tracy highly
values Its possession.
The Moral decorations In the church
Were simple and art is tic. There wan
no attempt nt pompous display, but a
striking effect had been achieved by
the free use of the nrevnilinir Eastet
lilies und greenery. The body of the
edifice was In no way embellished, all
the decorations being conllned In and
about the nltar.
The bride's gown was a heavy, pearl
colored faille frnncals of exquisite
lustre, trimmed with rare honiton lace,
which practically covered the should
ers of the gown, falling over the
idi-eves and continuing in wide reveres
which turn again near the waist line
to form a Louis Quaterza jacket effect.
Soft, full bows of pale turquoise blue
velvet caught the laco together over
a full vest of chiffon, und the neck was
linishod with a soft crush collar of the
A lengthwise jnbote of honiton laco
trimmed either side of the front
breadth of the skirt, which was cut
deml-trnln. to hfi'ig in graceful waves
of fullness. With this was worn a
small capote of pale blue .velvet, trim
med with n. white aljrrette and pnmnon.
nnd a twist of lace cinflned with a
superb diamond ornament. 'Another
diamond ornament of equal size und
value fastened the lace on one side of
the corsage mar the shoulder. The
groom's gift to the bride, a niagnllicent
chain of neii.-ls, wns looped on the
corsage. Mrs. Dimmiek's bonnet was
smnll, of blue velvet, trimmed with
white nlgerctte and small spangles,
held in place by jewelled pins.
Philadelphia. April fi. When the

vate car having nboard the Harrison
bridal party came Into Broad street

employes collecttd. In respond- to some
cheering from the crowd Genctnl Har

looked through the window ami smiled
her thanks. Lieutenant Parker ard

Washington, April 6. The proposi
tion In the postotlice appropriation bill
affecting tho consolidation of Binall
postollices near the large towns and
cities, led to a long debate In the senate
today. In which there was an exhibit
ing of much political nnd personal feel
ing. While the present administration
of the postolllce department received
commendations from a Republican sen
ntor (Mr. Wolcr.tt, of Colorado) It re
ceived severe criticism from a Demo
cratic seutor (Mr. Gorman, of Mary
land) and President Cleveland r.imti In
for a large measure of abuse from a
Populist senator (Mr. Allen, of Nebras
ka). According to Mr. Wolcott the af
fairs of the postoffiee department arc
being- "ably and intelligently conduct
ed." Mr. Gorman Ironically congratulated
the postolllce department that it had a
Republican senator for defender, and
he suggested with biting sarcasm, thnt
ninny acts of the administration could
best he defended by some Republicans.
He condemned Postinnstcr General
Wilson for going about the country de
livering lectures on the tariff and on
gold and silver, tnstend of attending
to the duties of his otllce, and quoted
the homely proverbs that, when a man
is found proclaiming his own virtue
nnd honesty, there is a rascal near at
Mr. Allen was even less reserved In
the expression of his views. The great
est mugw.ump In the country, he said,
was installed in the white house, al
though he thought It was difficult to tell
whether Mr. Cleveland wns more of a
mugwump than he was of an Imperial
Democrat. He added that Mr. Cleve
land was a disgrace to the great of
fice he occupied, and thHt he ought
not to be, und doubtless would not be.
returned to that jiosltion again.
Tho session closed without a vote
having been reached, but It was agreed
that a vote should bf tijken nt 5 o'clock
tomorrow- on the bill and all pending
A messnge announcing the action of
the house on the Cuban resolution was
received; but no further action on the
part of the senate was necessary. '
Cl'HAN RESOLUTION PASSED.
According to the arrangement made
Saturday, the house today voted upon
the report of the conference committee,
recommending tho adoption of the sen
ate resolutions regarding Cuba, instead
of those recently paused by the house.
They were agreed to, 245 to 27. The af
firmative vote would have been ten or
twelve greater, but several gentlemen
who had general pairs -with absent
niurnbers did not feel nt liberty to vote,
although it was stated that the absen
tees were themselves In fnvor of the
resolutions. Several gentlemen lost
their votes by being out of the house
when the roll was called.
The negative votes were cast by
Messrs. Arnold (R. 1.). Atwood (Mass.),
1 Slack (N. Y.). Houtelle (Me.), Daniels
(N. Y.), Draper (Mass.). Glllot (N. Y.),

cans, and Messrs. Berry (Ky.), Black
(Gh.), Culberson (Tex.). Ellett (Va.),
Elliott (S. C), Lockhart (N. C), Tuck
er (Ta.), Turner (Qa.) and Tyler (Va.),
The text of the resolution follows:
Resolved, That in the opinion of con
gress a condition of public war exists be
tween the government of Spain and the
government proclaimed nnd for some
time maintained by force of arms by the
people of Cuba, and that the United States
of America should maintain a strict neu
trality between the powers, according to
each all the rights of belligerents In the
ports and territory of thiVliilted Stales.
Rrsolved, Further, that the friendly of
fices of the United States should be offered
by the president to the Spunlsh govern
ment for the recognition of the Independ
ence of Cuba.
These nre the senate resolutions, con
curred In by the house.
Despatches from Madrid, stating that
It is expected in official circles there
thnt President Cleveland will sign the
Cuban belligerency resolutions, but
will postpone giving them effect by a
declaration, indicate thnt. the nature
of the resolutions Is not even yet under
stood nt the Spanish capital. As re
peatedly explained, they are "concur
rent" not "Joint" resolutions, nnd under
a practice which has grown up In re
cent years In congress, concurrent reso
lutions do not require approval or dis
approval hy the president, who may act
upon them or not, as he chooses, but in
no case Is called unon to sign them.
