MARIE LLOYD.
Her Husband Charged with Using Threats to Her.

Charles Courtenay, described as a commission agent, of Lewisham, was charged at Marlborough-street on Tuesday with using threats to his wife, Matilda Alice Victoria Courtenay, otherwise known as Marie Lloyd.
Inspector Tildesley deposed to the arrest of Courtenay. Mr. Tom Beard, for Mrs. Courtenay, asked that defendant should be bound over to keep the peace. Defendant said he would not consent to be bound over, as he had done nothing. The sworn information on which the warrant was granted was to the effect that Mrs. Courtenay was separated from her husband by virtue of a deed dated January 23, 1894. It was said that defendant used obscene language and threatened to murder complainant. Defendant had previously been bound over to keep the peace. Mr. Hannay said it would be necessary that prosecutrix should attend, and remanded the case, defendant being admitted to bail.

THE EMPIRE.
CARDIFF.

Miss Marie Lloyd, whose name is one to conjure with in a theatre of varieties, heads the bill for the Cardiff Empire this week, another big "turn" being the three brothers Le Fre in the "Gentleman Scamp," where scope is given for acting, singing, dancing, and acrobatic feats. Mr. George M'Culloch, one of the oddest of impersonators; Mr. Alf Chester, Miss Maggie Day, a clever little character vocalist and dancer; the Musical Palmers, and the two Emeralds, most artistic artistes, make up a very attractive bill.

THE EMPIRE.

An exceedingly strong company has been engaged at the Empire Theatre of Varieties this week. First and foremost comes Miss Marie Lloyd, the eminent comedienne, who sings the well-known song, "When you wink the other eye," and who is engaged to take the leading lady's part in the next Drury Lane pantomime. A very amusing "turn" will be found to be that of Mr. Tom White and his street Arabs. Mr. George Lashwood and Miss Ada Rippon are staying another week, and the remaining members of the company are Miss Kate Vince, violinist; the Sisters Devey, vocalists; Miss Marie Balfour, descriptive vocalist; and Messrs. Turle and Volto, trapeze artists.

Found, a water-cart actually in the act of watering the streets! This is not a flight of fancy, but the solemn truth, and the multitudes who will have serious doubts on the subject may get the proofs at this office - only,
please, don't all come at once.
Miss Marie Lloyd is to be congratulated on her escape at Newport baths on Wednesday. But for Mr. George Moore no one knows what would have happened. Such a thing couldn't possibly have occurred
at Cardiff: the mud is too thick. But the incident simply illustrates the saying that in this world there's no pleasure una-Lloyd.

Conveyances Collide.
MISS MARIE LLOYD IN A CARRIAGE ACCIDENT.

Before Mr. Justice Hawkins and a special jury on Friday Brantford v. Birch was an action to recover damages in respect of injuries done to a horse and a brougham which were passing along Oxford-street, conveying a lady artiste and her friend from one music-hall to another,
and the question in dispute between the parties was through whose fault it was that the collision between the brougham and an omnibus happened.
Mr. Heber Hart was for the plaintiff, and Mr. Kemp, Q.C., and Mr. Munro for the defendant.
The plaintiff was a job master at Balham-hill, and defendant was an omnibus proprietor, and was also Government contractor for Post Office work. The account of the accident as given by William Chester (plaintiff's coachman) was that about half-past ten at night on the 17th of January
last he was driving Miss Marie Lloyd and Mrs. Le Brun, her friend, from the Metropolitan Music-hall, Edgware-road, to the Palace Music-hall, in Shaftesbury-avenue, and when near Hereford-gardens he met two 'busses going towards the Marble Arch, one following the other. The hind one was
suddenly pulled out sharply from behind the other, and ran into his horse and brougham. The splinter bar of the 'bus struck one of his horses on the ribs, and so injured it that its value was reduced from 40 guineas to 10 pounds. The carriage was also injured. Soon after the accident a constable
came up.
Mr. Justice Hawkins: When it was all over, of course. (Laughter.)
Mr. Kemp: But the constable saw something that was very important.
Mrs. Le Brun said that she was the wife of Mr. George Le Brun, and she was in the brougham with Miss Lloyd at the time of the accident. Witness herself was not a music-hall artiste, but simply a friend of Miss Lloyd. They were in good time to get to the music-hall. The brougham came to a sudden
stand-still, and Miss Lloyd and witness got out to see what was the matter. They took a cab, put the luggage upon it, and went on for the next "turn." She did not think that they remained on the scene of the accident for more than ten minutes. Miss Lloyd was in good time for her next "turn." The brougham
horses had never been going at any rapid pace, for Miss Lloyd was very nervous, and she did not like rapid travelling.
Cross-examined: She was not at the time of the accident attending to the omnibus horses; she was prompting Miss Lloyd with her songs. It might be that Miss Lloyd was due at the Palace Music-hall at 10:25, and that the accident happened at 10:17. She could not, however, say that this was the time.
The plaintiff's coachman, in the course of his evidence, bore out counsel's opening statement, and added that he was not at all excited, but was as cool as he was in the witness-box. A police-constable, however, who was called for the plaintiff, said that the driver was at the time very excited. The witness at
the time thought that he was intoxicated, but he did not now think that he was drunk.
A number of witnesses were called for the defence. A Mr. Cooper said that just before the accident the brougham was going so rapidly that he thought that the horses were running away, and he rushed into the road to try and stop them. They were going from twelve to fifteen miles an hour, while the omnibus was
going at a walking pace. - Another witness, however, said that the pace of the omnibus was from six to seven miles an hour, but when the driver heard someone call out he put on his brake, and so pulled up to a walking pace. There was at the time no omnibus in front of the defendant's omnibus, which was travelling
in a straight line, and there was no attempt to pass any other vehicle.
The jury, without hearing the whole of the evidence for the defence, intimated that they had made up their minds, and there was a verdict and judgment for the defendant.

Alec Hurley became Lloyd's second husband.

He featured in Britain's early "talkies",notably as the villain in "The Flying Scotsman"(1929) and earlier films synchronized to phonograph cylinders.

A tour of Australia was possibly the catalyst of their "misconduct".

Marie was happy to see the last of her first husband.

And eventually,her second.

She then married a jockey.

MARIE LLOYD'S CONTRACT.

Before Mr. Justice Kekewich on Tuesday morning an injunction was moved for, on behalf of the Canterbury and Paragon Theatres (Limited), to restrain Miss Marie Lloyd from performing at the Grand Hall of Varieties, Clapham Junction, in an alleged breach of contract. -
Counsel stated that her first performance under the contract was on February 20 next, and she agreed, as was customary in the profession, not to perform elsewhere on the Surrey side pending her performance under the contract. - Mr. Warrington argued that the agreement
was unreasonable both as to time and space. The agreement was signed on the 3rd of June, and from that time till February she was to be debarred from following her profession in a large area of London. - Mr. Justice Kekewich upheld this view, and refused the injunction, with costs.

MARIE LLOYD'S HUSBAND.
BOUND OVER FOR ASSAULTING HIS FATHER-IN-LAW.

Percy Courtney, 33, described as a commission agent (the husband of Miss Marie Lloyd), staying at the Adelphi Hotel, Strand, was charged on a warrant at Marlborough-street, on Thursday, with having assaulted Mr. John Wood, a licensed victualler, of the Prince's Public-house, Wardour-street, W.
The prosecutor deposed that about midnight on July 14 he was seated in a carriage in Wardour-street with his daughter (the defendant's wife) and another lady, when the defendant came up, and saying, "Come out of that you, ______ Yank," struck him a blow on the head with a stick and smashed in his hat.
He (prosecutor) got out of the carriage and returned the blow with his own stick. Witness thought the defendant must have meant the blow for another man, as he (Mr. Wood) was not an American. - Mr. Newton bound the defendant over in his own recognisances in the sum of 10 pounds to keep the peace,
and ordered him to pay the costs of the proceedings.

Miss Marie Lloyd Divorced.

Miss Marie Lloyd, the well-known music-hall artist, was divorced from her husband, Mr. Percy Courtney, on Friday. Mr. Alec Hurley, also well-known in the music-halls, was the co-respondent.
Miss Marie Lloyd was married to Mr. Courtney in 1887 at Hoxton. A child was born, but ten years ago the wife left her husband, taking the child with her. For a time the respondent lived with her parents, but eventually, the petitioner stated, he learnt that she was living with Mr. Alec Hurley. He then presented his petition, but
lack of means forced him to relinquish the suit.
Mr. Courtney then went to France, and making some money eventually came back to England and recommenced proceedings.
Sir F. Jeune: There will be a decree nisi with costs. I don't know about the child.
Counsel: I am quite willing to let the child stay in the convent.
His Lordship: Very well, then.

A MERRY WEDDING PARTY.
BOISTEROUS MIRTH AT MARRIAGE OF MISS MARIE LLOYD.

The marriage of Miss Marie Lloyd, the well-known comedienne, and Mr. Alec Hurley, the equally popular coster impersonator, was legally solemnised at the regsitrar's office in the Hampstead Town-hall at noon on Saturday, the ceremony being carried through amid a scene of boisterous mirth. It was shortly after noon
when Miss Marie Lloyd and her bridal party and the bridegroom and his friends drove up in a couple of smart motor-cars. Up the broad staircase to the registrar's office trooped the bride and bridegroom and friends. The bride, who at every step up the staircase was kissed and embraced by her ardent friends, was attired
in a cream dress, with a costly ermine cape over her shoulders. The bridegroom was attired in conventional frock-coat costume, and was attended by Mr. Sam Poluski and Mr. Tom Macnaughton, "his keepers," jocularly remarked the vivacious bride. The little room in which the wedding ceremonies usually take place was altogether
inadequate to accommodate the crowd of friends. A hurried consultation was held, and Mr. Robert Bridger, the registrar, considerately agreed to conduct the ceremony in one of the larger rooms. The two groomsmen danced attendance on the bridegroom, and Mr. Sam Poluski convulsed everybody when, as a finishing touch, he
drew a handkerchief and carefully wiped the perspiration from the beaming countenance of his charge, afterwards dusting his boots. Well-known music-hall gags and skits flew from mouth to mouth, and everyone shrieked with laughter. While Mr. Sam Poluski told tales of the awful responsibilities of a groomsman to sympathetic ears,
the bride and bridegroom were photographed. The groomsmen having been left out of this act, the picture had of necessity to be re-taken.
In the midst of the mirth the registrar rose and enjoined silence, and in a few moments the brief legal ceremony which made Alexander Hurley and Matilda Alice Victoria Courtenay husband and wife was completed. At the conclusion of the ceremony the bride was surrounded by her friends, who showered kisses upon her, the bridegroom
was saluted as often as the bride, and the exuberant groomsmen kissed each other.

MISS MARIE LLOYD.
HUSBAND CLAIMS DIVORCE DAMAGES.

 A petition for divorce has been filed by the well-known "coster comedian," Mr. Alec Hurley, against his wife, Miss Marie Lloyd, to whom he was married on October 27, 1906, at the Hampstead Registry Office (says the "Daily Chronicle.") Mr. Alec Hurley alleges in his petition that during his absence in Birmingham, where he was fulfilling a professional engagement
in his sketch, "Cockneys in Japan," Mrs. Hurley had all the furniture removed from their house in King Henry's-road, Primrose-hill, and went to live at the Midland Hotel, where (according to Mr. Hurley's citation) she was visited from time to time by the co-respondent in the coming action, Mr. Ben Dillon, the well-known jockey.
It is alleged in the petition that respondent and co-respondent have for some weeks been staying in the South of France together.
Mr. Hurley is claiming 5,000 pounds damages against Mr. Ben Dillon.
In the marriage register at the Hampstead Town-hall the petitioner is described:
"Alexander Hurley, 35, bachelor, comedian, 98, King Henry's-road, N.W., son of John Daniel Hurley, deceased, captain in merchant service," while Miss Marie Lloyd is entered in the records as "Matilda Alice Victoria Courtenay, formerly Wood, spinster, otherwise Marie Lloyd, 36, the divorced wife of Percy James Courtenay." The register gives her father's name as John
James William Wood, "artificial florist," and the signatures of bride and bridegroom are witnessed "in the presence of Sam Poluski, Alice M'Naughten, and J. Wood."

MISS MARIE LLOYD.
She Went to the Bottom at Newport Swimming Baths.

Whilst Miss Marie Lloyd, the star of the Newport Empire programme, and a lady friend were having a dip at the public baths on Wednesday a quietly sensational incident occurred. Both the visitors were, it is stated,
able to swim a little, but when they struck out into deep water they fouled one another, with the result that Miss Marie Lloyd went under, and, losing her presence of mind got into difficulties. Her companion became excited,
and called for help. One of the attendants - George Moore - went in, and helped the music-hall star out of the water with the aid of a pole and triangular lift, kept for the purpose. Miss Lloyd appeared none the worse for her
adventure, and took her accustomed turns on the stage at night.

MISS MARIE LLOYD SUED.

At Glasgow on Wednesday the Moss' Empires Company sought to interdict Miss Marie Lloyd from continuing her appearances at the Glasgow Pavilion. They urged that she was under a 1,000 pound contract with them not to appear
within ten miles of Glasgow from May to October.
The Sheriff refused to interdict, as the contract was not signed by both parties.

MARIE LLOYD IN AMERICA.

Marie Lloyd is in America, and the other night she appeared at the Olympia Music-hall in Pittsburg. This is what is said about her turn in a local paper: - "Marie Lloyd, the English music-hall singer, brought the blushes to the cheeks of a large percentage at Koster
Bial's last night, but the regular habitues cheered her coarse songs to the echo and smothered her in flowers. She should be requested to moderate her transports.

THE CHARGE AGAINST A MUSIC-HALL ARTIST.

The Press Association states that today (Thursday) is fixed for the adjourned hearing of the summons, in which Miss Bessie Bellwood, described as of the London Pavilion, is charged with having committed an assault on Percy Courtenay, the husband of Miss Marie Lloyd,
while at the Trocadero Music-hall, on December 22. On the first day Mr. Woodburn Smith, solicitor, representing the prosecutor, asked Mr. Newton for an adjournment, and stated that if the matter could be left over there might be no occasion to further trouble his worship. Since
then an arrangement has been come to, but of course awaits the sanction of the magistrate. The basis of the proposed settlement is stated to be an apology from Miss Bellwood, and payment of costs incurred in initiating the proceedings.

THEATRE OR MUSIC HALL.
INTERVIEWS WITH MISS MARIE LLOYD AND MR. DAN LENO.

SPECIALLY SET FOR THE EVENING EXPRESS.

The announcement that Miss Marie Lloyd and Mr. Dan Leno are about to desert the music-hall for the stage "proper" dismayed lovers of the halls. For both these artists were looked upon as fixed stars of the music-hall firmament, and to find that they were
but wandering planets was a sad shock.
"It isn't that I'm tired of the halls," explained Miss Marie Lloyd to an interviewer, "and I don't think they are tired of me. But as soon as I make a success of a song on the halls, it does not matter how I sing it, some people say such things that I'm going to try a new line
of business."
The lady's feelings were obviously very much hurt.
"But are you leaving the halls for good, or is this only a passing flirtation?"
"If I am a success I shall stick to comic opera," said the lady, determinedly; "and there's another reason for it. To keep the halls amused you have always to be getting new songs and dresses, and it means fearfully hard work."
So Miss Marie Lloyd starts at Dublin with Mr. King's company in March, and the piece will very likely be produced in London later on.
There is one grain of comfort left - Mr. Dan Leno is no deserter.
"Don't believe the rumour, my boy," he said; "I am going into burlesque or comic opera. Don't know which; not fixed yet. But only for a six weeks' tour. Pledged to the halls for the next six years."
It seems that the funny little man takes a six weeks' tour every year, and instead of "doing the halls" this time it will be the theatres.
He starts with Mr. Milton Bode's company at Birmingham in a few weeks, but it is only for a change.
"Say I'm leaving the halls, do they?" he remarked, "why, they might as well have said I was going to prison."

CARDIFF AMUSEMENTS.
THE EMPIRE.

Again a most attractive programme has been arranged for the Cardiff Palace of Varieties. The announcement that Mr. Stoll had engaged Marie Lloyd, the principal artiste in the pantomime at the Drury Lane Theatre, would alone attract a crowded house, but this engagement
is backed up by others hardly less important.

South African Politics.
MISS MARIE LLOYD INTERVIEWS THE PRESIDENT OF THE TRANSVAAL.

The Famous Artiste Asks Leading Questions, but Kruger is Diplomatic and Only Says "Ask Johnny Jones."

Any one not aware of the reason for the scene which occurred at Waterloo on Sunday might easily have imagined the wild excitement to be due to the arrival of a party of Royal visitors for the Jubilee. The occasion was the homecoming of Miss Marie Lloyd, who has been filling a short
but splendidly successful season in South Africa.
It was nearly a quarter-past one when the special bearing the passengers from the steamship Tartar was sighted in the offing, and at that time some hundreds of people were gathered on the platform. As the engine entered the dock an enthusiastic relative of the distinguished variety artiste
said, "Get together, boys, and give her a cheer," and a few seconds later the lady who has given to a grateful world many such enduring classics as "Oh, Mr. Porter" and "Johnny Jones" swept by in the fore-end of a saloon car. If there was excitement at the moment it was increased fiftyfold as
the eminent artiste, with an exclamation of delirious joy, jumped from the platform of the coach into the eager arms of the enthusiastic relative aforesaid. For half an hour the scene was too touchingly beautiful to be profaned by description. To the bewildered senses of a callous journalist it seemed
that a plump, golden-haired lady in sailor rig was rushing around bestowing hysterical caresses on all within hugging range. Thirty-seven resounding kisses jarred the glass roof of the station inside of twenty-three seconds, which, it seems, dislocates the previous record by a second and two-fifths.
But amid that scene of frenzy one remained calm and unhugged. His heroic figure, drawn to its full height, and his classical features fixed with the immobility of a Roman statue, he looked without a quiver upon the spectacle of wholesale osculation. Then advancing proudly to the little lady with the golden
hair, he said, "What ho, Marie - do you speak Johannesburg?" It is, perhaps, superfluous to state that the original of the picture was Mr. Daniel Leno. Then amid a riot of happy words an adjournment was made to the refreshment-room.
Later in the day a representative of the "Daily Mail" saw Miss Marie Lloyd at her suburban home, and there gathered that the two months' season at the Empire, Johannesburg, had been an unqualified success.
"My nervousness on the opening night," said the lady, "was awful, but I explained that to the house, and had to sing six songs afterwards. South African politics? Oh, I never worry about politics. I've got something much more important than that to think of. But I saw President Kruger at Pretoria, and we had
quite a nice chat. There's a general notion out there that our little interview has settled all international difficulties. I asked him how he was, and he replied, "Oh, going strong," or words to that effect. Then I tried to get out of him why he didn't do the square thing by the Uitlanders, and give them their Aliens Immigration
Act and close their drifts and things, or whatever it was the Uitlanders wanted, and he said if I asked Johnny Jones I should know, see? He rather got back on me, didn't he?
"The people out there are immensely good. Come and see all the presents they made me. Why, to tell you the truth, I didn't want to come home, but it's nice to be back again all the same. In '99 I return, and before that I shall go to Australia."
Miss Marie Lloyd will appear at the matinee to be given at the Royal, Holborn, today (Monday), in aid of the Prince of Wales's Fund, and in a fortnight she will resume duty at five halls. She has no intention, at present at all events, of lecturing in the meantime on South African politics.
