At this hour,  the     delegates a,nd oilier officials decline to     throw further     light  on the  subject of  lhe negotiations  winch will  he     resumed tomorrow*.   It    us taken  for granted     ihat a compromise    has  been   reached  on  the subject of fortifications    which has been     the crux of*  tiro situation from   the start and that  the main -questions will be arbitrated,  ft  is     rumored  that considerable in-"'  lluence     was iLVought to bear on both  sides looking to concessions by  which  the   wounding of the  sensibility   of the  people of c'ther nation might be avoid  ed and an cntentn net ween the Scandinavian peojiies be secured. While it  is possible that the exact terms of an  agreement     have , een drawn up and  approved by both sides, the indefinite*'' '  imvss of the official announcement coupled with     the resumption of sessions  of the delegates     tomorrow, leads' to  the     inference that     only  the  broad  terms on which Sweden will consent,  will dissolution    of the union be'set-  tied.   But     as both sides up to this  morning    appeared firm     in their demand     regarding the fortresses there  is     good reason to suppose th'at mutual concessions were made-   Prior to  tho assembly    of the     conference to-  nicjht premiers Lundeburg and Mikai-  cses, respectively of Sweden and Norway, were in ��������� conference alone.   The  report that the rowers had made ren--  rrsenttvtion    to Sweden was based on  the  fact that. Grmt  Br-t^n. France.

A pretty  young girl .was. nob  only jilted  at the hour set  for    her  welding,      when      a hundred   gue.',.s  ���������were     assembled  for  the ceremony,  but the perfidious lover left the gay  party  for  a few moments  and,   walking up the     street,    marned another  girl.     Pi city Mary  Kren, or Thornton street,  Williamsburg,  is  lhc)jilt-  ed girl,  and  John  Muranzd  is     the  good   looking   youlh   whom  she     accuses of heartlessly leaving her wh-.flc  the wedding   festivities  were at their  height at the home of lhe really and  truly     -hride's   parents   &{   Hopkins  street.   Before  the   festivities      were  over 'the jilted  girl   learned of     the  perfidy,   .-and  the young- wife,  Mrs.  '  Annie  Talcrn  Maranzel,   declares   the  '   other young woman  descended on the  liouse   with  a party   of  relatives and  friends  and   pulled   her  hair,   I'n    the  police  court   at  Williamsburg      -she  caused  the Kren girl to be araignod  on  the  charge   of .-assault,   and    she  was present .with her husband,  who,  it was plain,   would c-rather  have H.oen  anywhere  else,   to prosecute.    While  they stood .before Magistrate. T-Iig-g-*^-  bothani,  Mrs.   Maranzel  nestled close  up against her  big  but  uncomfortable husband.   She shot   glances       of  triumph   at  the other  young  woman.  "I     gave my love, my money,    my  everything to him," said Miss Kren,  ���������luirsting  into  tears,   "and now     ho  has  broken my heart.   While he was  out  of work I paid  his  board       awl  kept  him   from  starv.jig,"   she  continued.   "And  even tlie money for his  weddmg  clothes���������the very suit       in  which he married her,  and  was     to  have     married    me���������came from  my  purse." ~ v.,  In  denying   the charge  of  assault,  Miss Kren told how* her marriage to  Maran/cl   was  to have  taken      l>lacc  early      in   the evening.    The   guests  were present to the number of a hundred or more, and   the wedding feast.  was spread.    She  was  attired   r..n all  her  finery,  and  the  coach  was       in  |  waiting to  take  them  to  a church in  Thorp  avenue, near  Thornton street.  The hour to  start      was  close     at  hand when  the  groom���������all  spick and  span  in  his new clothes,   and  seemingly  the ha-ppiost  or  men���������answered  a ring  at  the  door-bell,   returning an  instant  later  to' the  presence��������� of' the  ��������� startled  guests  and  even* more, startled bridc-to-hc"with  a note that urgent business demanded his1 prescence  elsewhere.   He would  i:e gone only a  little   while,   he.said.   The   confiding  young woman  wept  a little,  but she.  said she would wait until he returned.   It' was near  ten   o'clock  when a  searching^ party started   out  to hunt  the   missing  man*.   The   bride-not-to-  bc was  in the  van  of  the searchers.  As they  nearod Hopkins  street there  was a sound  of merry-making within  "Young Mr.  Maranzel and  the pret  Iy Annie Talern have been  married"  a neighbor     -volunteered.  What  then'  happened    Magistrate  Higginh-otham:  will try and  decide when the case is  resumed.    The  Talerns  say the house  was    ' rushed,   the  festivities  broken  up. and     that the frightened       and  shrieking bride had -her  face slapped  and  hair     mauled   by  the infuriated  Miss   Kren.    The  latter' declares this  to be      untrue.  When  seen by a reporter,  the young wife said:  "I     do-  not     know  that  my husband  jilted  this  other woman  for  me.  But       I  love    him     and  lie  belongs  to  me  alone.''  A Cordial invitation is extended toy;>u to be  pres.  ent at cur  GRAND  MILLINERY  RA'fKS Ja.oo PKR.
