I., May 27 Lauraette Clarke, who was reported to have eloped from Port Jefferson, last night, was. arrested here to - day in company with her soldier lover, Lyden Robertson. The couple were married by Justice of the Peace Smith W. Conklin. Miss Clarke, who is the daughter of Stephen H. Clarke of Echo, hired a rig from Liveryman Phillips of Port Jefferson about 10 o'clock last night, saying she was going for a short drive. It developed at the examination before Justice Conklin to - day that the girl met young Robertson and the two drove to Patchogue, arriving here about midnight. They drove about all night. Phillips became alarmed and this morning when the girl' and rig failed to appear and upon inquiry at the girl's home he learned of the man in the case. He telephoned to Liveryman John Baylis here, who kept a sharp look out for tne pair, and about noon Baylis and Constable M. V. Roe caught them and brought them before Justice Conklin, who held them on a charge of stealing the carriage. Phillips was sent for, but on his arrival here about 4 o'clock said he would not appear against the girl or young - man if they would pay the expense, $10. Justice Conklin accepted Phillips' proposal and Young Robertson paid the bill. Both were yanxious to have the justice marry them and both were wreathed in smiles at the happy culmination of the episode. Justice Conklin said it was the first time he had known a case of grand larceny end in a marriage. Robertson says he is a native of Astoria, Long Island, and lived at 2,225 Third avenue, Manhattan, before his enlistment in the One Hundred and Third New York Volunteers, in which he was first lieutenant of Company A. Since the regiment was mustered out about a month ago, he has been visiting his cousin, Thomas Underwood at Port Jefferson. He gave his age as 21, the bride gave her age as IS, though it said, she is not over sixteen. She claims to have known Robertson a long time and she intended to marry him whether her parents objected or not. Robertson is a painter "by trade, he wore the uniform of a first lieutenant of the U. S.V. Both denied that they had any intention ot eloping, claiming they simply went off for a drive not deciding to tie the nuptial knot until brought to the Justice's office. The couple stared to walk to Port Jefferson, fourteen miles north of Patchogue, but Liveryman Phillips invited them to take their bridal trip in his carriage. The bride said she would present the marriage certificate in a gold frame to her father, but it is believed her parents will not take kindly to the marriage. PRESENTED WITH A MEDATj. Sea Cliff, L.

The factional fight in the Immanuel Presbyterian Church continues, although the pastor, the Rev. George L. MacClelland, now fakes no part In the affairs, having gone to the northern part of this state tor a rest. A meeting called for Monday night to take action on his resignation is expected to prove interesting in several ways. It was said today that forty - four friends of the pastor havo prepared their resignations, but will not hand them in until they carry their .points. It is also stated that In order to show their strength at the meeting, Monday evening, the pastor's friends would first vote not to accept his resignation and afterward vote to accept it. The members of the taction favoring the pastor are so certain of their strength when a vote is taken that they expect to carry their points as planned. Mrs. Benjamin F. Stephens of the opposing faction intimated yesterday, that there might ba some surprises forthcoming trom - her friends. In reference to a statement given out by friends of the pastor and' printed in the Eagle, Mrs. Stephens said: ' "I will say that the envelope mentioned in the statement was brought to the building committee 'the morning of the. laying of the corner stone by Ithamon Du Bois, clerk of session sealed when on account of the severe rain storm the exercises, had to be postponed. He asked for the sealed envelope and took it away. It was brought back June 8 or 10, , the afternoon before the laying, of - tha corner stone. "The committee had discussed with Mir. MacClelland the fact that the envelope was ' sealed. He told us it was not proper that It should be sealed, and gave the committee permission to open the envelope, which they did. "They considered that the report was not full enough and was wrong in details that took place before Mr. Du Bois was connected with the church, of which he could not know except on hearsay. Members .of the committee knew these facts of their own knowledge and appended and enclosed with the report tha additions and corrected statements. The original document was not altered. "I am also pleased to know about Mr. Parliman. I never quite understood before what he had to do with this church and this trouble."

The matter was first brought to the attention of the residents some weeks ago when the news reached them that an organization known as the Brooklyn Rowing Club had asked permission of the authorities to erect a club house at the foot of Seventy - fourth street.
