Romance of Son of Nicaraguan President
rVTASHlNGTON. Alfonso Zelaya.
Iff the president of Nicaragua's only
son. and his lovely young American
wife, a descendant of the Lees of Vir
ginia, are two great attractions at a
lve-cent theater in Ninth street here.
Every morning Mr. and Mrs. Zelaya,
who seem devoted to each other, go
from their three-room flat to the
sheap little amusement house. The
wife, who has the dark eyes, the vivid
coloring and the lithe figure of her
Spanish mother, seats herself in the
high chair back of the ticket window.
There she remains, all afternoon and
far into the night, selling tickets,
while the performance- is repeated
aver and over again and nickel John
ales admire her from afar.
Her husband, heir of the president
of a South American republic, takes
his place at the piano; he is the or
chestra rolled Into one. He plays well;
he reels off with equal brilliancy mar
tial music when the soldiers charge in
the moving pictures; some idio-pa-thetic
ballad when a songtress sings of
her dear old mother in the humble
cottage far away, or rag time when a
burnt cork ethiop gives a stale cake
walk. Thus the Zelayas support them
selves and their baby.
Zelaya's father, a pretty good fighter,
wished his son to-have a military edu
cation, so the United States govern
ment politely Invited Alfonso to be
come a cadet at West Point. He en-:
tered the academy six years ago, and;
after a couple of years "fluked"?
failed to pass Ihis examinations. He
came to Washington, and while living1
in a boarding house met the charming
Miss Marguerite Baker, as she was
known, adopted daughter of Dr. W. W.
Baker, of the post office department.1
They were wed in . the spring of
1906 since then they have learned,
but seemingly not to their sorrow, that
the world is not made up of Repub
lics and of well-born and considerate
A most romantic fact In this court
ship and marriage became known
months after Zelaya had won
his bride. Then she produced proofs
of her descent from the Lee family.
Mrs. Zelaya's' mother was a beautiful.
Spanish woman, and records in the
District of Columbia courts show that
the daughter was committed to a local
foundling asylum years ago under the
name of Lee. She was taken from the
asylum and adopted by Dr. Baker, and
until she wed young Zelaya it was be
lieved that she was Dr. Baker's daugh
ter. Mrs. Zelaya speaks with a pro
nounced Spanish accent. Her hus
band and she visited Nicaragua, and
reports came back to this country that
President Zelaya had been won over
by his daughter-in-law. Just why the,
young couple are living under . such
circumstances it is impossible to
learn, their pride bars them from mak
ing an explanation. It was rumored,
not long ago. that Zelaya's father
would appoint him to a diplomatic

There was no special celebration of
