Justice Burke and Recorder Karnes figured in a little elopement early yesterday morning that has caused more excitement about the court house than anything that has happened for some time. Yesterday morning as the gray streaks of dawn were beginning to show in the sky Benno Bankau and Miss Mary E. Litcher were made man and wife on the south steps of the court house. The young couple, with a friend, appeared at his house last Sunday night. They wanted to be married but had no license.
Recorder Joseph Karnes resides on Twenty-fourth and Faraon and the justice told the young couple the only way out of it would be to go and get the recorder to go to his office and get a license for them. They agreed and the justice accompanied them. The house was silent as the grave and no amount of yelling could raise anyone in the Karnes home. Windows flew up in each part of the neighborhood and heads and white gowned figures appeared. Some appeard to have boot jacks in hand but none was thrown.
Justice Burke had done his duty and he went back home, telling the young couple if they discovered the whereabouts of the recorder to awake him and he woulod do the rest. At 3 o'clock he was awakened. The couple, with the friend, was there with a carriage. The party went to the Karnes residence. The recorder was picked up and they went to the court house. The license was procurred and the couple married.
The young woman has been in the employ of Henry Krug, Jr., for some time. Her husband formerly worked for Mr. Krugs father and the friend that asserted the couple in getting the licens is now in the employ of Mr. Krug, it is said.
