MARRIED AT DUNKIRK
     The Bride's Father Objected and They Took an Evening Train for New York -
     Ceremony Performed in a Drug Store.
     Albert Springborn
and Mary Lawrence of this city were married in a drug store at Dunkirk, N. Y.   Monday evening Springborn left the young bride-elect in the railway station on arriving on an evening train and entered a drug store to inquire where a justice of the peace could be found to marry him.  Police Justice Hiller, who happened on the spot, offered to find Justice Holestein which he did in about fifteen minutes, when the young couple were married in the front part of the store in the presence of many witnesses, who crowded the door and sidewalk.  When the young husband had placed the ring on the finger of his young and pretty bride they went back to the station, where they took the night train for this city.
     They represented that the mother of the bride had consented to the marriage, but her father had not, and as according to the laws of Ohio, persons under 18 years cannot legally be married without the consent of their parents, they came to New York state to be married and take their short wedding journey.
     Buffalo papers refer to the affair as an outrage and are severe n their criticism of the action of both justices.
