QUESTION OF KIN7G LEOPOLD'S MARmAG-E Paris, Dec. A special despatch to. the Figaro from Brussels says that Baron Goffinet, private .secretary to the late King of Belgium, denied the report that a civil marriage was per- formed at the death bed of Leopold, but he admitted that a secret reli- gious marriage probably occurred re- cently, although the King never speci- fically inforrm-d his intimate friends .of su'ch'-a marriage.
