It is to lower the Irish race f in the eyes of young Americans ana " hold the Irishman up to ridiculte ; and cause his children to disrespect i; him and the country fi;om which he J f came.''

The 31-ycar- old' .marriage contract entered Into between the late W. K. Vanderbllt and. the Duke of Marlborough prior , tP the marriage of the Duke and ' Consuolo Vanderbirt, which reveals the terms of the transfer of Vander-' bill riches for a title, has been un-f. earthed here in the Surrogate's 't Court.' ' i . This follows the report of action of jthe Catholio Church at Rome In an- i nulling the marriage between the . Duke, and the American heiress, a marriage that took place In the Epis- eopal Church 'of St. Thomas, Fifth ' ave Manhattan, In 1895. Dishop Manning, in' whose diocese the union took place, has been among : those to express consternation at the j annulment decree. , ; , I; The pie-nuptial marriage contract between the Vartderbills and the Duke f Marlborough reveals that to date the Duke, despite the fact that he Is divorced, Mas collected $3,100,000 and la still getting $100,000 yearly. W. . K. , Vanderbilt, the contract shows, established a $2,500,000 trust fund In stock of the Beach Creek Railway and ' under -the agreement the. Duke. of Marlborough was to get $100,000 yearly from the fund. The father of the 17-year-old bride also agreed to give Consuelo another $10Q,;000 for her support, " , The document shows that the Duke was determined upon shrewd bargaining, and Vanderbilt was distrustful of the nobleman. The Duke succeeded, however. In forcing the provision that in event Consuelo oV her kin should upset the $2,600,000 : Beach' Creek Railway trust fund,' she would Ipse the $2,-500,000 trust fund from her grandfather's estate and he the, Duke, would get it. , .

Queen Marie, today, was on the last lap of her Journey across North America, a trip of 10,000 miles that has consumed almost a month and exhausted the endurance of everyone aboard the train. When the train comes to its last stop, Jersey City, a score of weary passengers will alight to face the city they left last month in the best of spirits. Not even the excitement over the illness, of King Ferdinand, which is curtailing Her Majesty's visit to this country, succeeded in surmounting the hatreds of the party. They were in fact increased. The divided factions fell on the re turn as another bone of contention and quarreled Incessantly over the route, the time and the sort of demeanor the Queens should assume under the circumstances. , Arriving at Jersey City, the royal party will motor to Tuxedo to the estate of Charles E. Mitchell. New York banker, to rest and await the sailing of the Berengarla, Wednesday. i i Plots and Counted Plots Now Abound in Rumania By United Press. Vienna, Nov. 20.

Well, that's the way Maude Stewart Welch, author of "Vrouw Knicker bockerthe Story of Brooklyn" felt last night when approached for an interview at 10:15, on entering the vestibule of her home, 137 East 20th st, Jackson Heights. . 'I don't know a thing about It! Let me see It" she exclaimed. The reporter handed her the black- covered book with Its gold inscription and she examined It expertly. Pretty good get-up," she said, turning to her husband, J. J. Welch, vice-president of the Western Union Telegraph Co. "Yes, but you ought to talk to the gentleman. He's been waiting here a long time." Mrs. Welch at her apartment. she la probably so called seemed a trifle unpolsed by the sudden cata-pulslon of the book she had written upon her. "I'd rather not talk," she said, "not Just now, anyway." Finally her husband persuaded her. He went upstairs, she sat on the stairs, and the reporter got out his pencil. Started as porter. Mrs. Welch had been a newspaper woman, has written short stories under the name of M. H. Hall they were not Quite worthy of the name of Welch, she explained so it was ot necessary to ask her questions. h! h flnwn ,!. lnoriinir,kjhe Juat dictated, i goi ion so oixen in Brooklyn that I became fascinated by the placev It was a 'knotty problem to be solved. That was many years swiftness since announcement was made of the Queen's early return from the United States. In Vienna and throughout Central Europe, the Queen's recall has caused uneasiness among politicians. Increasing reports" of the grave nature of the King of Rumania's illness have been accompanied by i rumors that the entire country is restless and tilled with plots and plotters.

Now I knew it by heart, and love it.. "We would be living In Brooklyn Heights now, but it was impossible to obtain a house with a large backyard, and surrounding foliage which We desired for the children. "Yes, I am a mother. There are' Marjoiie and Frances. "Their ages? , What agea mat ter? Date are only labels, as I've said in the book. I hate dates. "I first stayed in the Hotel Margaret About two years. I liked It While there I' began learning; about Brooklyn. No more will I lead a friend into the Gowanus Canal, trying to show him tha way from Times Plaza to Livingston st My days at the Margaret proved profitable. ' Worked Long on Book.- "While there I spent most of tny leisure on the book. I would, travel about visiting queer streets, tracing; old distinguished names, running down tha lives of quaint houses. , "No, I waa not born In Brooklyn. I was born in Rainbow, la. My parents were born in the East, my mother In Philadelphia, my father in a am all Vermont town. - We're lived largely, in the -East however. When asked about Brooklyn and Manhattan, the author, laughed so heartily that, she stood up a mo ment and moved into the lighted portion of the vestibule. ' She appeared rather tall, and neither thin nor stout Her hair seemed copper colored, but the light was deceptive and she was wearing a hat. "It is to laugh! Brooklyn and Manhatttan are not to be mentioned in the same breath. Manhattan is dirty, crowded and impersonal Brooklyn is clean, spacious and friendly. "I can sincerely say that I love Brooklyn and hate Manhattan. I've traveled all over the United States and in Europe, and I think that those two statements apply to the rest of the world. I love Brooklyn and hate Manhattan. Mrs. Welch does not smoke, "des pite my bobbed hair," she said with a smile. And in further "despite," Mrs. Welch does not believe in "too much domesticity." In her boqk she tells that the Dutch the early settlers of Brooklyn were "great on the domesticity stuff, but I believe in careers first" Believe In Career i Her children, if she ha anything to do with it are going to have career before marriage. "I fell In love when I wa If and was aa good as married then. Yes, only one husband, and quite satisfied. Mrs. Welch is the mother of Mar- Jorle, training for journalism, and Frances, preparing for the stage. When the family lived in Brook lyn the daughters attended a public school on Glenwood rd.

It gave me many happy hours. . Drop Illustrations. "And on thing more. At first the book wa to be fully illustrated. By whom? Myself. But when I finished the drawings I found them unsatisfactory. They didn't., do Brooklyn justice." Mrs. Welch is not a "joiner." She does not belong to a long list of Clubs or organizations. That is why she is unknown at present to historical societies ' ' , "My only club' Is the "Pen Women,' and that IS connected with my avocation. My vocation, I assume, I being a wife but "not a housewife." Mrs. welch is working on a novel. wmcn sue is provocatively about silent. Somehow, however; In the writer's mind, though Mr. Welch was not present the honors ot the conversation belong to him. Without his genial and persevering perauastoni it could not have taken place. 1 And Maude Stewart Welch ha Men her book. i . . CONVICTED OF HAVTNO DRUGS.
