and it practically announces its desire to
Biipnort n ticket of such creation before
its own party lias called a convention or
the democratic party has placed n target
in the field for the contest. The Journal
is evidently afraid to trust the republi
cans of Lincoln and evidently bolinvcs or
knows already that this committed will
put a man of its own liking in the Held
lor mayor , which makes it almost amus
ing to see it preparing to enter the lolo
of n mugwump in city politics. Of
course , if tnis committee of fifteen place
a democrat in nomination , that party will
support the movement , for it would bo in
their forlorn hope an entrance way to
possible success through the common as
sistance of what republicans , through all
kinds of influences , could be drawn into
the support of a democrat through a cry
of reform. It is very evident , however ,
that the great mass of republicans iu

Very much us though some of the alleged
guardians of the city had sotno schemes
to advance or perpetuate and have in
augurated tills movement to scouie that

the public. The city's needs and noces-

tests a Tolco and vote direct from the
people , and the people ought to bo stron

The Lincoln Base Ball association is
1)usily engaged at the picscut time upon
their grounds on South street , and it is
pafo to say that no club in the Western
league will have handsomer or better
fitted grounds , both for the players and
tbo patrons. A largo and commodious
grand stand will bo erected , the grounds
nro fenced and the diamond is being
lilted and platted to pattern after the best

easy access to the park and. already the
stand privileges , programme work and
Jiko accessories have been leased
lor the season. President Threw ,
of the Western league , arrived
liero Sunday evening from the meeting
nt Lcavenworth , at which place the
Kansas City club secured a membership
nnd the schedule of games for the season
was formally adopted. The lirst game
on the Lincoln grounds at the commence
ment of the season will bo played with
the Omaha club on the 5th , titli and 7th
of May , the Lincoln club , however , open
ing the season a week earlier in a series
of three games with the Denver.s at Den

by July the Lincoln team will be leading
the league for the pennant and the Hast
ings club will bo just closu enough to the
leaders to make the games of decided in
terest. It would not bo a bad schcino to
oecuro seats at once for these holiday
contests. The most of the players in the
Lincoln team have reported at head
quarters and the balance are expected

present a constant practice will be the
order and it is understood that efforts are
now advanced for a series of exhibition

Pittbburg Dispatch : One of the legis
lative committees , on Friday , in delving
among the archives of the hotiso of rep
resentatives after traces of an old com
mittee report , came aciois a document
which possessed a romantic Intelest , and
recalls a somewhat exciting incident of
social life at the state capital in lb(15 ( ,
which never got into print and was
known to but a limited circle at tlio time.
The document is the original of house
bill No. 3 of the legislative session of
1800 , the introduction of which at the
first session at which the house was fully
organized was the lirst act in the legisla
tive career of Mathew S. Qu.iy , now state
treasurer and United States senator-elect.
It was a bill to divorce Marv Wilson Me-
Connell from her husband , Henry Lloyd
McConncll. Mrs. McConncll was tiiu
yountr and handsome daughter of the
then Governor Curtin , and tucreby hangs
the romance of this story.
Through the efforts : of Mr. Quay and
Senator Lowrey of the Crawford district
this divorce bill , without going to com-
mittcc , passed both houses of the legisla
ture in less than two hours. This was on
January 10. 18(5i ( > . Miss Mary Wilson Cur
tin had just budded iu her teens when her
father was elected governor of Pennsyl
vania , and was a school girl when sue
came to Harrisburg lo live at tiie execu
tive mansion. She was sprightly , good
natured , and had charming manners. Ky
1805 she had grown to boom of the hand
somest , most ontortaintnir , nnd most
sought after of all in society hero and in
Philadelphia , where she was well known
and is still remembered as a belle.
Ono evening at an entertainment at the
governor's mansion she met youncr Cap
tain Henry Lloyd McConnell , a dashing
olllcer of the army , who was taken ill
during the reception .and kindly taken
care of by the governor's family. This
led to frequent meetings between Miss
Curtin and young McConnell , who was a
fine-looking fellow , but of no particular
social status , and would not have been
listened to by the governor as a suitor
for the hand of his daughter. But Cupid
and the captain's shoulder-straps plavod
havoc with the voting lady's heart. The
result .was that ono afternoon a pair of
timid lovers appeared in the office of old
'Squire Mcl.aughlm and asked to bo
married. The young lady was
veiled. The justice did not droan
that she was the governor's
daughter , whom ho knew by sight
as one of the pretty girls of the town , lie
readily agreed to perform the crcmony.
His little nephew , who was present , wit
nessed the marriage certilicate. The
young lady gave her name as Miss Mary
Wilson Curtin , with a strong accent
upon the last syllable. The old squire
nnd his nephew are both dead , but there
is still a living witness to this ceremony
in Harrlsburg William McLaughlin
the justice's son , who was homo from the
war on a furlough and happened lo be in
the ofllco at the time.
"Captain McConncll , " said Mr. Me-
Laughliu , m relating the story of the
marriage , "was a very handsome fellow ,
but I guess that's about all there was in
him. "
The captain walked down the street to
the executive mansion and left his bride
at the door , going to his own quarters ,
presumably to lot the storm blow over.
Hut the storm never did blow over. The
governor , as was to bo expected , was in
towering rage when ho was told by his
daughter what she had done. The young
lady was hurried off to a boarding school
and out of reach , and negotiations wcro
begun with the husband to got him out of
the way as welj. Gov. Curun's political
power at that time was'greatorprobably ,
than that of any man in the state , and
means were found to induce the young
and daring captain to leave the state and
make no claims upon his wife , who. ho
was told , had repented ot her marriage ,
and didn't care to sco him anv more. In
a few days the captain loft Harrisburg ,
and was lost sight of by his friends hero.
Ho subsequently became a United States
marshal iu the west , where he now
Whether the young bride protested
against the summary way in which she
was snatched from her husband's arms is
a matter of conjecture , but it was cur
rent gossip among those few who knew
of the circumstances that the irate gov
ernor had locked his daughter up iu her
room in the executive mansion until the
captain was out of the way. The mar
riage was kept pretty quiet considering
the circumstances , and. although the
story did leak out in society in a piece
meal sort of way , the particulars were
never known , and the papers knew
nothing of the affair. As soon as the
legislature mot a divorce bill was
presented , as has been soon , and the
marriage annulled. Since then Miss
Curtin has married a gentleman in every
way worthy of her , is well known in so
ciety at the national capital and in New
York , and looks back upon her youthful
folly with the regret which comes with
more sober years.
