Special to tlie HIK. : ] The Due de.Morney's
[ wedding with Miss Gusman Blanc came elf
at the Clinft'Ii of the Madeleine to-day with
splendid eclat. The weather was the ideal
Parlsan summer day of du/r.llng sun and
cool northerly brte/.e. At noon the massive
hrotuoilooisof the Madeleine were thrown
Wide open and a crimson velvet earpet was
Spread from tlm gianlle steps and reached
down to tlie boulevard. The vast church was
lilted to overllowlni ; , hundreds of ladles
( standing on tip too on chairs to catch a
K glimpse of the biide. 'i'ho toilets were beau
tiful , lavender pink , pale blue straw and
white predominating. Thousands of people
gathered on the sidewalks and In the 1/al- /
conies and windows facing tlio Madelelno.
At 12:15 : the nuptial cortege appeared. The
DucdoMorncy alighted from a coupe drawn
by two supeib bays. Ho looked \ery pale
and serious , lie was In evening dress , and
wore a largo cross and ribbon of the grand
commander of the order of Charles 111 ot
of Spain. Ills liancco drove nplnalarco
landau , with dark brown horses covered with
white H..tin ribbons , and with coachman and
footmen In brown , crimson and gold livery
She wore a white satin bridal dress with a.
viiylong train , very simple and entirely
coveted by her white tulleveil. . She
was attended by three bridesmaids.
In the nave of the church six
ubhcs In full canonicals performed
the marriage service , Abbe Pattls pronounc
ing the nuptial benediction. The music was
very impiessive , including the Ucus Jsrael of
Bec.ihoven , the Ofons Pietas of Haydn , and
Goiinad's Ave Mai ie. The organ was played
by Theodore Dulccrs. AtSo'clock all left the
church , tlie Due and do Mornoy
driving elf In a coupe drawn by two superb
bays. The wedding reception and bieakfast
were at the Grand hotel.
The due's presents to the bride were equal
to those of the famous duke of Buckingham.
I will only mention four of them : A superb
riviere of diamonds , not mounted ; that is to
say , held together by a wire of gold so line
that when worn on the neck tlio diamonds
only are visible , and liavo the appearance of
hundreds of huge drops ot dew. Another
present was a magnificent diadem of
diamonds , woith at least S O.OOl ) . Then a
broad ribbon of diamonds , attached to a sort
of gold chain work , bo as to tic and untie
about tlie neck like an ordinary silk scarf.
Then a fan of white feathers , literally pow
dered with thousands of small diamonds.
The flowers that the due sent to the bride
during tlio thirty days preceding the wedding
„ were superb , no two bouquets ever being the
J , same. One day there would boa ship of carnations -
t / nations , lilted witli roses ; another day , n
. * - - South Amerlcrn hammock , made of twisted
lilies of the valley and filled with orchids ;
the next day a bicycle , made of corn flowers
surmounted by roses ; then a balloon of lilies ,
with jasmine and pausies ; in short , every
floral oriuinality that a vivid imagination
could deviec.
Among many other striking costumes com
prising tlie trosseaii is a moss-green dress of
1'ieneh foille. The tunic falls in straight
panneaux , and is draped In front with ciepo
do chine. Over the tunic is a dark green
velve.t Louis XV casque , with a tigaro vesto
richly embroidered and studded with emer
alds and gold. One of thu diichcsso seaside
dresses Is a palm In Ivory , white and ecru.
The skirt Is composed of a deep valant ,
which is , like the corsage , covered with
Venetian i-mbioldery. In fiont of tlio cor-
sagu Isa gau/.o ciuvo , forming a jabot. The
diiehesso evening toilets are buwilderlngly
beautiful. Ono of the richest , 1 won't say
tlm loveliest , is u sulphur satin dinner cos
tume , consisting of a bkirt draped with crupo
do chine , exquisitely embroidered , and spangled -
. gled with gold , polannlso of grosse foille ,
caught up at the hips over n pout'coqulllo ,
fastened with llttlo satin bows , and n
cot-sago which meets ami Is merged In
n broad celnture. trimmed with dainty satin
bows. Another dinner toilet , only to bo used
on state occasions , pel haps chaster In taste ,
and 1 think more effective , is made of white
satin , with aditvctoirocasqiieof while striped
Pckln. The skirt is covered with suottcd
guuzc , gracefully draped and festooned with
white silk. Hound the waist is n broad satin
bash , with long ends falling behind und fas
tened In fiont by a double row of large an
tique enameled buttons , pet In gllver.
Like many other duchesses , the Duchess
do Mornoy is not above taking a bint liom
tlm stage. Thocuilosity of her trosseaii Is
undoubtedly a long by/.antino mantle , sug
gested by "Theodora , " made of the richest
Ivory velvetine , lined with' pink satin and
thickly embioldered with by.iuitlno : designs
In silk and gold. After marvels , such
comparatively simple trilles as a blue and
wlntu woolen check morning dress , a dark
blue foulard , a flounced walking costume , and
a rustic toilet of ecru ttissor , and
n stripedmoldclro and white foulard summer
dress , specially made forTiouvllluand thoraces
races , 1 hellovo would shrink back Into In-
blgnilicanco If It were not that each Is remarkable -
markablo for some charming detail of cut or
trimming. But a robu do Hudson of silver
brocade , relieved with rose buds and forgot
mo nols , brings us baclc to ducal splendor
again. This costume , tlio last I will mention ,
Is completed by a casque a la Lamb.illu , open
ing on a bewitching chemise of pale pink

The Bavarian Parliament Closed.
MI-NICII , July 1. [ New York Herald Cable
Special to the Bin : . ] Parliament closed
to-day in tlio presence of the royal princes ,
Leopold , Lmlwlg , Ferdinand , and Duke
Ludwig. The Ilrst president made n lengthy
speech , apart of which was a sort of praycn
for the house of Wlttlesbach. He concluded
by saying : "God grant that we may never
have again a session fraught with such
frightful convulsions and painful excitement
as the session just closed. " All tlie members
withdrew amid wildly enthusiastic cheers
for the king and the loyal family. The
queen's mother Is to-night worse with sevnio

Chamberlain's Sxvuy Declared to be
Glvltifi Out.
BOSTON , July 1. The Herald staff correspondent
pendent cables to-night from London that it
seems apparent that Chamberlain's personal
and local sway Is now restricted almost en
tirely to Birmingham. Yet , even there , he Is
not supreme since in several of the seven
divisions of the borough the Gladstone feel
ing lias been so strong as to oblige the mem
bers seeking re-election to make concessions
or risk defeat by Gladstone candidates. The
political history of the past fortnight in Bir
mingham is slngulailv interesting. Of seven
liberal members live voted against the home
ule bill , bui it is by no means clear that five-
sevenths of the electorate approved of their
vote. Gladstone's followers have been men
aced by their own friends with tory votes.
So confident arc those who threaten that no
tory will compete witli the unionist , even lie
might win against tlio dividend liberal vote ,
that tlio compact is suspected of being some
thing more substantial than appears on the
surface , aome indiscreet expressions which
have fallen from the lips of Arthur Chamber
lain have little loom for doubt that Ins
brother has something very like u
formal understanding on the point witli Lord
liundolph Churchill. On the other hand
there aie but few votes that will be Influenced
by. the personal nature of dilliciiltles which
sundered Chamberlain from his old chief.
Thu Birmingham pet has complained in pub
lic of one of these. His grievance is that
after being uskod to join tlie cabinet for tlio
purpose ot inquiry into tlio cause of Ireland's
trouble , he was left out of the inquiry alto
gether. In private lie says Gladstone is a
man witli whom it Is next to impossible to
work ; that ho is domineering and
Impatient of discussion when it docs
not take the form of eulogy. The return
without opposition of Liverpool yesterday of
three conscivatlves Whitley , Kayden ana
Baron Henry C. Worms signifies nothing.
It Is true each was opposed at the last elec
tion , but in tliat contest VVhitloy and Kayden
won their seats by more than twofold major
ity , and so Worm had a margin of a seventh
ol tlio vote so there was no encouragement
for opposition to their re-election.

A Dcinnorutla Fnrcc.
Dr.s MOINUS , la. , July L [ Special Tele
gram to the BII : . ] In the wildest days of
greenback madness or democratlo discontent
there never was seen in Iowa such a state
convention as the democratic convention
here to-day. Pandemonium let loose but
faintly describes- scenes of riot that were
enacted. All went smoothly till the com
mittee on platform made its repot t , and then
the ball was opened. The majority report re
solved in favor of local option in counties
and municipalities , and for the enforcement
of prohibition whore that was oidered , and
where It was not , the substitution of a license
whose minimum amount should bo SAOO.
This was n lemnikable advance over other
years , and brought the democrats to the old
camping grounds of the republicans. It was
an nma/.lng spectacle to see democrats , who
all their lives had denounced prohibition as
wrong in principle , stand up and demand
prohibition lor the counties that might want
It. Tlsls sentiment , however , was conlined
to the democrats from the Interior , or , as they
were called , the "slough water districts. "
Tlio river counties brought In a minority re
port consenting to local option In cities , but
leaving , as an alternative , a license without
any sum mentioned. Then the light
began. Fifty men were on the lloor
at once , clamoring to bo heard.
The local option and high license men in
sisted that the democratic party was beaten
last year because it had not the couraco of its
convictions and took up low license to please
the saloons. The river counties retorted that
they furnished tlie democratic majorities mid
had a right to be heard. They weie willing
to shut their eyes to consistency and take lo
cal option , but they demand ( lie right to lix
their own license fees and icgulate their own
Hamilton , of Leo county , who wrote the
minority resolution , stood in the aisle expos
tulating with the convention and exclaiming
in a demonstrative way : "Wo will go with
you against our judgment to local option , but
for ( Sod's sake let us regulate our own
license. "
Schmidt , senator from Davenport , spoke In
a similar strain , while Senator Knight , ot
Dtilmiuo , demanded to know whether this
convention was there to stand by demooiatic
principles or to juggle with expediency In
the hope of catching some unwary republi
cans. Ho warned the convention that if it
passed this high license fee and forced it
upon all communities , whether willing or
not , the democrats of tlio river counties
would not be satisfied and would not go into
the light with a prospect to win. But itva s
in vain , for tlio "slough water districts" out
voted them and c.-.mped on the practical pro
hibition ground by 174 majority. *
The turbulence that this called out was
nothing to that which followed when a mem
ber sent up a resolution denouncing , in the
severest language , the senators who took § 210
back pay for the vacation before the
Brown impeachment trial began. At once
there was a motion made to lay the resolu
tion on the table. The convention voted
this down and Senator Knight , of Diibuque ,
waving his tall white hat to attract thu atten
tion of the chair , obtained the lloor , and in
stentorian tones declared :
"Mr. Chairman , 1 tiruud the resolution as a
lie , and I denounce the authors of It as a liars.
The senators liavo performed services for
which this pay was taken. " JIo then
launched out into a vigorous defense of those
who had taken the back-pay , claiming that
they were entitled legally and morally to it.
A rural delegate shouted out : "Dm you
take the money ? "
"Yes , 1 did , and I would do It again , " was
Knight's ringing reply.
"You'll never got another chance , "
screamed a dozen voices.
At tills the Dubmpio delegation , sixteen 111
number , headed by .Mayor Slab , rose to their
feet and. waving their arms , yelled : "Ho
will ! Ho will 1"
"We'll send him again. "
"Yes. 1 will , " said Knight , "and I defy this
convention , mid 1 defy tlie men who wrote
that resolution , to do me harm so long as 1
have tlie confidence and support of tlio people -
plo I represent. My coiihtituuncy endorsed
my action and sent mo to this convention us
chairman of tlio delegation , and 1 don't care
a farthing for your resolution , whether you
vote it up or down. Jf you wanted to de
nounce ical abuses and real evils , why
didn't you denounce tlio president of
the United S ates for bowing down
before the corporate monopolies and veto
ing tlio DCS Monies river land bill at the de
mand of a gigantic land grab ? Why didn't
you denounce him for depriving poor settlers
of tliulr rights ? Why didn't you denounce-
the judiciary department of tlio government ,
loaned down with Pan-Klectrlc stock , and become -
come a shame and disgrace to the country ?
Why didn't you denounce the members of
your last legislature that rode on the passes
of corporations and then drew from tlio
treasury mileage for every milo they traveled
in coming to the legislature ? "
At this point ho was Interrupted with
hlssosand groans and yells of "put him out. "
His words had fallen like a thunderbolt
among the astonished delegates. Knight
had been thu Idol of tlio democratic party.
An eloquent , powerful speaker , a gentleman
of many graces , tlio convention was nearly
struck dumb nt his tierce Invectives upon the
Congressman Cook rushed to the platform
and exclaimed : "This Is outrageous. Senator
Knight Is a gentleman and has aright to bo
heard. "
"No he hasn't when ho abusns n democratic
president , " shouted several angry delegates.
"But I will bu heard , " said Knight , "and
you can hiss , as becomes your nature , but 1
defy you to come down to Dubumto among
my friends and hiss mo there. Von pass u
lot of fulsome llattery of the president that
you know doesn't mean anything , and the
same men , for tlio saku of cheap glory , fulmi
nate against better men , or us good men as
they ever were. I say to you , gentlemen ,
thai you had better direct your surgery. If
you want to correct evils , to the festering
boresof the president and his administra
tion , i Yells and hisses ot rage and horror. )
Hiss If you want to , " ho continued , "I care
not for your hisses and abuse so long as 1
am fortified by tlio respect und regard and
contidcnro of the people of my constituency. "
Ho sat down , and the convention , as by
one accord , bioko for tlio doors and ad
journed for dinner. But it was plain to be
seen that the hone and enthusiasm of the
convention had all vanished , Thu daleirales
wi'io ' too umd for sober utterance. They
went swearing down tlio streets , threatening
vcngenco upon Knight and all his friends.
When the convention reassembled the light
was resumed. A n attempt was madeto compro
mise the affair by a substitute resolution put
ting the blame upon the republican party for
passing the law under which tlio senators
took back nay. Tills resolution was greeted
with derisive shouts of "that's too thin , "
"that never will do , " Then an attempt was
made to carry the previous question and shut
plf debate , but that failed and palidemonlum
broke loose again. Senator Johnson , an
other democrat who took tlio back pay , de
fended his action , hut was hooted down , aim
hnaHy the censure was wsaqd , with a hurrah
wud then the convention went to the nomi
nation of state olliccrs. lint the discord had
taken awny all Interest In further pioced-
inga , Many delegates left in disgust , and the
convention concluded Its work witli 111 feel-
maud shame and chagrin manifested on
t ery fac * .
Cato JjcUi of UlacJ ; liawk county , was nom
inated by acclamation for secretory of state ,
and Paul Onclick tof .Burlington , was nom
inated for auditor.

the democratic convention , the latter com
pleted Its work by nominating for attorney

and Frank Bradley tor supreme court re

The following Is tlie democratic platform :
The democracy of Iowa , In convention as
sembled , announce the following platform nf
principles : That the clean , pure and honest
administration of drover Cleveland Is a mat
ter of just piIdn for every American citizen ,
without distinction of patty , and we most
cordially and heartily aptnove and applaud
the noble , determined und successful efforts
of the president In the Interests of good itov-
ernment , and we pledge him our continued
support In all such elloits.
That the nohlo and manly efforts of Gladstone
stoneIn behalf of a representative govern
ment for Ireland commands our uiuiualltlcd
That we most heartily express our apprecia
tion of the serviceof nil union soldiers-uud
sailors , and recommend tlm lullest recogni
tion ol in defense ol our conn-
trv by ample and liberal pension laws , making
allowances to all who rcculved Injuries or
disabilities in tlio service , and to those de
pendent upon them. To that end we con
demn private bills and special legislation ,
which favor a few to the detriment of the
manv , and favor general laws that will ena
ble the pension bureau to bestow the go\ em
inent bounty upon all meritorious claimants.
That to Impose taxes for any other purpose
than the raising of necessary revenue for the
support of thu government Is unconstitu
tional and wholly inconsistent with our
boasted freedom. Wo theieforo call upon
congress for the Immediate revision of our
tariff laws to u revenue basis , to the end that
every Industry and every section may enjoy
perfect equality under the law.
That we insist that the surplus revenue ac
cumulated In the treasury of the United
States , not needed to defray the current ex
penses of the government and meet the ap
propriations made by congress , bo applied to
ilm payment of the public debt.
That the public lands nro a trust held by
tlio government as the heritage of its people ,
and that they should under no circumstances
be alienated from its citizens nor made the
subject of barter and sale tor speculative pur
poses , but should be held for actual settlers
who purpose , by their own labor , to buildlup
in our country a homo ; and we demand the
immediate and unconditional forfeiture of
all unearned railroad land grants.
That , recognizing Industry and morality as
tlio standard of individual and national
greatness , and that the foundation of purity
and happiness in tliu'homo would secure to
thu laborer a partlclpatlDii in tlie fruits of his
toll , and a share to the family and the homo
in the refining influences of advancing civil
ization , we therefore call upon all who may
havoat hcait the greatest good to the greatest
number to join with us in sicurln ; . ' , by un
prejudiced legislation , a just recognition of
the rights of the toiler , und in protecting the
Individual rigtits of tlio laboiers by proper ,
equitable and honorable safeguards against
tlie present and threatened encroachments of
monopoly corporations.- ,
Westernly denounce the betrayal of tho'ln-
terests of the miners ot Iowa by tlie last repub
lican legislature and Its shameless violation
of the pledges given ; by its platform and
party leaders as shown by the defeat of the
measures of relief demanded by the miners
of tlio state. Tle ) only safe foundation for

principles of popular government , is wholly

That wherever a public officer Is shown to
have been corrupt , or to have violated the
laws in his otlicial position , wo call for his
prompt conviction and severe punishment.
Mo long continuance in dishonest and illegal
practices can be accepted as a shield orpallla-
tion of guilt. Recent disclosures of republi
can maladministration , corruption , doiianco
of law and abuse of power-call loudly for the
punishment of many guilty men and for
driving from power a party which has so dis
graced und debauched the administration of
public affairs In Iowa.
That wo favor the repeal of the present
prohibitory liquor law of this state , and an
enactment. In lieu thereof , securing each
county and municipal-corporation the right
to determine lor Itself the prohibition or
license of the sale of intoxicating liquor as a
beverage , providing by proper legislation for
the enforcement of prohibition where prohi
bition Is adopted , and where license Is
adopted , for a license fee not less than S500 ,
with such legislative restrictions as will pro
mote sobriety and suppress free whisky.

Will tJio Operators Strike ?
WA nix m > .v , July 1.- ( Special Telegram
to the Uii.l : There Is considerable talk
among Uin Western Union telegraph oper
ators at this point nf prolublo strike before
the close of the summer. Most of those who
wore spoken with to-tiny on the subject main-
tallied a studied reticence , but one of tlio
mtmbcrlliially made the folluwliigstatcuicnt ;
"Yes ; H Is true wo arc considering the ad
visability of a strike.Vo \ have certain de
mands that we piopose to submit to the com
pany. If these demands mo not cumpllcd
with , wo shall probably quit woilc the 1st of
August. "
"Wlmlnro thcso demands ? " was asked.
"It Is not to secure an Increase of pay. "
WHS the reply , "but rattier to prevent the com
pany from reducing our salaries , us has been
the custom for several years past. 1 can bet
ter Illustrate my Idea by taking the case of .1
ninety-dollar man whom the company lias
seen lit to discharge. This man's place will
boiilled by a slxty-vlollar man , which makes
n practical reduction in that ease of SfSO a
month , In the event of the discharged operator
rater belli ; ; reinstateilby the company , he
will bo fortunate toftevback'nt $ ( tt or , at the
most , 870 a month. The WesternJjUnion olll-
eials arc afraid to make a systcmjfiuq reduc
tion nil along the line for fearof p'reelpltatrftic.
a strike , \\hlcli would crcatu a strong public
sentiment In our favor. For this reason lli'ey
employ the method 1 have Just described ,
whll'h bus amounted , in the last three years ,
to a cut of probably S5 percent. "
"In the event of a strike , will thn men who
took your places In the former strike 'scabs , '
as you call them oppose you again ? "
The operator smiled. "It would surprise
you , 1 dare say , to learn that the 'scabs' are
the most aggiessive element we have among
us. By a soil of retributive justice they
seem to have suffered worse than those of us
who went out in 18S3. hi the great majority
of cases they were inferior men. The com
pany ottered them the highest rate of wages
paid at that time. They were not woiththe
salary then , and are not now. Tne company
latterly lias been discharging them upon the
slightest technicality and ic-cmploylng them
again at about Halt' their former pay. All the
strikers were taken back at greatly reduced
wages , and consequently they hnvo less
grievance than those who took their places.
Nevertheless , wo can't permit the company
to continue cutting down , and for that rea
son shall ask them to cry a halt. If they
don't agree to our proposition. It is very
probable a strike will be ordered August 1.
Our organization Is now incorporated In the
Knights ot Labor , who will give us the bone-
lit of their experience as well as their moral
and mental suppoit. If wo do strike , " ho
added In conclusion , "you may look for a
dilToicnt termination from that of thrco
year ago , " ,

went to their work in the various yards , each

called into active service once more. They

for consignment over the Lake Shore yester
day afternoon , and it was to take these
out that the engine was sent to tlio yards.
The strikers still keep clear of the vicinity

on them by lear of arrest , the influence of
their leaders and tlio presence of deputy

Prospective Ucvivnl of tlio Tripartite
on n Peace Knot Ing.
CHICAGO , July 1. [ bpoelal Telrgiam to
the llr.i : . ] Tnero has been considerable
change In the compromise proer.uumo to set
tle the western Height war. The ma/lagers /
liavo given up the meeting called to arrange
the affairs of tlio western freight association
nli < i President 11. It.Cabloof the Uoek Island
has issued a notice that there will bo a meetIng -
Ing of -'Tripartite" ( Western Trunk line )
association , July s. To this helms invited
Vlco-Prcsldont Potter , of the IHirllneton.and
Marvin llughitt , of the Northwestcrn.iieither
of whom Is a member. The Union P.u'llic , It
Is stated , Is particularly anxious to revive
tlio "Tripartite- order to protect Its busi
ness from Invading roads In Nebraska and
Wyoming. It Is not believed the Burlington
and Noilhwcstern will consent to
the proposition. The St. Paul of-
clals appear to bo as anxious for
peace as they foimerly were for war. The
Watuih Is anxious to remain In tlio combina
tion , hut it Is doubtful whether It will bo re
admitted upon the same favorable terms It
formerly enjoyed. When the tripartite com
bination was ilrst formed the Wabash system
had not been dismembered. Ithavimidropped
since its main line Irom Chicago to Omaha ,
It will be requested toMibmil. to a reduction
In its peicoiitaio or go out of combina
tion. That the Wah.ish will resist this Is
quite eeilaln. Kansas City merchants are
bitterly complaining because- - Council Hi nil's
and Omaha merchants get the benelit of war
rules while they ( Kanas City merchants )
are compelled to pay lull tariff rates , thus
preventing Kansas City merchants tiom com
peting with their competitors at Council
Bluffs and Omaha. If the present war on
Council Bluffs and Omaha rates does nut
soon come to an end the Southwestern rail
way association will lie compelled to reduce
rates to Kansas City and southwestern
Missouri points. In the western freight
rates yesterday on open rate was nude by all
roads on lumber to eight cents per hundred
Hounds from Chicago and six cents from
Si. Louis to Council Bluffs and Umalm.
