The Kotorlons English Duke Meet With
ioxD05,Nov.lO. The Duke oi Marl
borough was found dead in bed at
Blenheim palace this morning'.
The Duke of Marlborough, tenth
earl in precedence in the United King
dom and one of Lngland s greatest
aristocrats, if title be taken as a claim
for greatness, was a notoriously im
moral man and was known as such in
the two hemispheres. American in
terest in him centers in his wife, the
widow, Mrs. Lillie Warren llamersley
of rew lork, and his famous and beau
tiful palace, Blenheim, one of the most
magnificent of English country seats.
The duke was 47 years old before
his succession to the dukedom and
while marquis of Blandford he was
divorced in 1833 from his first wife.
His accomplice was the countess of
Aylesford, whose husband was a
dissolute peer and lived usually
in foreign countries and for a
time in Texas. After being di
vorced Marlborough and - Lady Ayles
ford lived openly together in Paris and
a son was born, which the duke later
acknowledged was his. He signed all
the papers necessary to the registry of
birth and settled on the boy &SO.O0O.
rne Earl ot Ayiesiora sued lor a
divorce, which was refused, as his
own character was not aoove sus
picion. In the meantime Lady Ayles
ford had thrown herself on the char
ity of friends as the duke treated her
badly and would never give her more
than $10 at a time. On the death of
the Earl of Aylesford the latter's wife
put in a claim for her child as lawful
heir to the Aylesford estate and title.
English aristocrats were horrified, and
the house of lords, before whom the
case was tried, quickly threw out the
claims and gave the title and estate to
the earl s brother. Nor was this the
only scandal in which the duke had
In 1887, being badly m need of funds,
Uie duke came to America, it is said,
for the purpose of finding a matrimo
nial partner with sufficient beauty to
add luster to his social position and
with sufficient funds to enable him to
make good the possibilities of his sta
tion. At the home of Mrs. Paran Stevens
he met Mrs. Hamersley and soon af
ter learned that her fortune was not
under tier,absolute control; that it was
to be left ultimately to the male issue
of J. Hooker Hamersley, cou
sin of Mrs. Hamersley's hus
band, and in case there should
be none, to such charities in New
York as Mrs. Hamersley should desig
nate. In the meantime Mrs. Hamersley
was to receive an annual income of
$150,000 from the estate, which was in
charge of three trustees, during her
While the gossips were speculating
the duke returned to England, where
he passed the winter, and Jn May was
again in America. The engagement
was soon announced, and a Gotham so
ciety leader was to take precedence of
every American woman who had
even married an English nobleman
and was also to take precedence of
every English woman except the queen
and nine others. The marriage oc
curred in the New York city hall,
Mayor Hewett officiating.

London, Not. 10. Another meeting
of the unemployed workingmen was
held at Tower Hill yesterday and
the speeches made showed increased
violence in their tone. The meeting
was more pregnant with promises of
violence than any other recently held

procession was formed and marched
toward the West End. As the crowd

short scuffle the men were driven
back. The editor of the St James
Gazette sent out word that he was
prepared and willing to see a deputa

grievances with them This had the
effect of quieting the mob. A deputa
tion was at once appointed to have an
interview with the editor, and then
the procession proceeded.
