BAR AMERICAN WIFE.
Earl of Granard May Not Become Lord
London, Feb. 13. There are reports
In society that the Earl of Granard,
who has just resigned. Is not likely to
be appointed because of the fact that
his wife, who was Miss Beatrice Mills,
Is an American.
It Is rumored that the speciDc objec
tion to him Is that It would be Im
politic to have an American woman In
a posltlott to Influence the lord cham
berlain, who is the practical arbiter of
British society through his power to
determine who shall be commanded to
attend court functions. The story has
received much currency, but so far la
not backed by anything authoritative.

Influences were used to obtain Brandt'
conviction powerful Influences were
brought to bear on Governor Dix to
convince him that Brandt's case should
not bo reopened.
It was learned that the governor Is

attorney general demanding complete

The Plan That Promotes Success
Minister of Foreign Affairs Made
Knight of the Garter.
London, Feb. 13. The Gazette an
nounces that Sir ICdwnrd Grey, the
minister of foreign affairs, has been
made n knight of the most noble
Order of the Garter.
The announcement created general
surprise, as Sir Edward is the first
commoner to be made n member of
the order since Horace Wnlpole was ap
pointed in 1712(1 and the first ever cre
ated when no vacancy In the member
ship existed. It wns thought nt first
thnt Sir Edward hnd been appointed
to fill n vacancy caused by the deatli
of the Duke of Fife, but It turns out
that the latter was specially appointed,
nnd his deatli made no room In the
membership for a now appointment.
