VETERAN ODD FELLOWS' BANQUET.
They Celebrate Their Thirteenth An
Officers Elected for the Ensuing Yvsar
—A Pleasant Occasion, With
Toasts and Responses.
The thirteenth annual reunion and
banquet of the Veteran Odd Fellows of
Sacramento took place last night at
their hall In Odd Fellows' temple, a
very large attendance being present.
The lodge was reported by the Secre
tary, E. J. Clark, to be in a nourishing
condition, there being eighty-seven
members. During the past year six
members have died and eleven new
members have been admitted. Several
members were also admitted last night,
previous to the annual election of offi
The lodge was instituted on Novem
ber 9, 1883, and has steadily progressed
ever since and now numbers among its
members many who are well known and
prominent in the order both in Sacra
mento and the State.
Officers for the ensuing year were
elected as follows: President, Peter
Newman; Vice-President, S. S. Nixon;
Secretary, E. J. Clark; Treasurer, M.
When it came to the election of the
Marshal there was a spirited contest
between John F. Dreman and H. C.
Wolf, which it needed five ballots to
decide. Dreman was finally elected.
After the election was concluded, the
ascimbly adjourned to the banquet
hall, where a repast awaited the mem
bers that drew forth many praises for
the cookery of the lady who prepared
It, and which was thoroughly enjoyed.
After the most ravenous appetites
had been duly appeased, toasts and
speeches were in order. An elaborate
programme had been prepared by the
President, W. H. Sherburn, but as he
had been unavoidably detained, being
absent from the city, the programme
was necessarily an impromptu one.
C. M. Harrison was called on to pre
side and proved equal to the occasion.
He said that Odd Fellowship aided
good citizenship and made better men
of its members. He drew a picture of
the motives and ambition 5 : that actu
ate men, from baybXM d up, and the
benefits that the order brings to them.
F. R. Diay was called on to respond
to the toast "The Man of Business,"
and said he considered it unfair to call
on him, as he was entirely unprepared.
He would do his best, however.
He would ask "What brought you
here to-night? Was it to get some
thing to eat? Was it to afford assist
ance to a needy brother? No, it was
the spirit that never deserts an Odd
Fellow as long as he lives. It was the
spirit of fraternity—of brotherly feel
ing—that permeates every member of
the order and attracts him to his fellow
members; that makes him a better man.
This is as it should be. The passions
that are not for the good of man should
be controlled, and as far as can be,
blotted out. The man who cannot con
trol them, is a failure as a man. The
spirit that animates Odd Fellowship
helps its members to do this. It leads
them to hold up and strengthen their
weaker brethren and guard them from
temptation. This is its mission and it
fullflls it when Odd Fellows carry out
Albert Hart responded to "What Odd
Fellowship Does for Citizenship."
He said that he had nearly marked
the fortieth year of his Odd Fellow
ship. His experience showed him that
It made men better citizens and ele
vated the standard of their morality.
He then recited a humorous poem that
was applicable to the occasion and that
"brought down the house."
A quartet composed of F. J. Bellhouse
first tenor, E. F. Ashworth second tenor,
J. T. Griffits first bass and E. L. Ger
rish second bass, with W. D. Crowe
as accompanist, rendered some fine se
lections that were received with liberal
W. W. Coons, George Dean and others
were called on and made interesting re
marks and the assembly broke up at a
late hour, voting the reunion a success.
At the Metropolitan Theater to-mor
row evening there will be an enter
tainment for the benefit of St. Paul's
Episcopal Church that will undoubted
ly draw, as it will deserve, a large au
dience. It Is for a worthy cause, it is
patriotic in character largely, it is to
be spectacular, and it will engage the
services of about a hundred of the pret
tiest children in the city, besides a great
many young women and adults who
will participate, in all between 250
and 300 people. Seats for the enter
tainment can now be secured at the
box-office of the theater. The whole
stage direction, as has been the while
stage preparation, will be under the su
perintendence of the Misses Mathews
of Chicago, who have managed several
such entertainments and always with
success, the latest being in San Jose.
The spectacle is the fa
mous "America" spectacle that was
given in the Auditorium at Chicago
during the World's Pair. Of course
while the inspiration has been drawn
from the "America" spectacle, the en
tertainment of to-morrow night will be
much modified from the original and
adapted to the season, the occasion,
and to local possibilities. But for all
that it will be very beautiful, very in
teresting and very entertaining. There
will be with a full brass band, a
male quartet, many novel marches and
parades by fairies, brownies and gro
tesque and allegorical characters. In
the midst of a garden scene, with dark
ness settling down and fountains softly
playing, the fairies suddenly appear
among a throng of children, who yield
them place and precedence. With
them come the brownies, and as the
fairy revel begins "America" is taken
up and sung by the children, and Co

SACUAMENTO DAILY EECOKD-UOTOK, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 1, 189 S.
lumbia appears enthroned in republi
can state and attended by her court of
representative characters standing for
free institutions. Columbia and her
attendants take up the music lead at
that point, and by invocation Justice,
Charity and other characters appear.
Then begin a series of novelties in the
way of marches, dances and the like,
with the introduction of topical sub
jects. One of the novelties is the whip
drill dance, another the dudes' drill
dance, and these and others will pre
sent to some extent business and local
interests in an amusing and wholly in
offensive way. One of the features is
the funeral march at night, another is
the rainbow drill and dance, a storm,
the appearance of Cupid, and a military
scene presented by one of our local
companies with accompanying music.
There will be statuary, posing and liv
ing pictures and other novelties, the
whole closing with the spectacular
scene "Peace," with Columbia pre
siding over a people happy in peaceful
and useful pursuits. Of course this ,s
but an outline of the features of the en
tertainment, not all parts and novelties
of which have been named.
There was a large audience in the
Clunie Opera-house last night to wit
ness the beautiful spectacle of "The
Crystal Slipper." The applause that
greeted the rich transformation scene
was as sincere as it was continuous
during the five changes of the act.
Nothing richer, handsomer or more
chaste has been given here in any scenic
spectacle. There were some changes
in the cast of the play last night, but
nothing that affected the smooth and
satisfactory production of the piece.
Miss Powers is now the Fairy Queen,
and a handsome one. In such charac
ters she Is notably successful. The
Phoite-Pinauds, the whirlwind acro
bats and graceful pantomimists, were
applauded to the echo, and surprised
and greatly pleased the spectators.
Eldridge in his specialty act was re
called again and again. This is the last
week of the play; seats are taken al
ready well in advance, and the promise
is for full houses the remaining nights.
It will be deserved. The Eldridge-Hal
lett management had three hard weeks
pr ceding Christmas, along with all
theatrical companies in the State, and
that the holiday spectacle will enable
them to recover losses and continue the
season is a matter that will gratify
amusement lovers, who desire that at
least one theater shall remain open the
Four members of the Eldridge-Hal
lett Company quit yesterday because of
some arrearages in salaries, for from
two to one and a half weeks. Their
places were at once supplied, and the
troupe suffered no harm from the small
strike. It was ill-advised, inasmuch as
Manager Todd certifies that the Messrs.
Eldridge and Hallett have paid up ar
rearages as closely as was possible.
They have had prior to Christmas
week, as everyone knows, three or four
dull weeks, when, as is true of many
other troupes, arrearages accumulate,
a common matter in the lottery of the
atricals. But, he adds, these gentlemen
have acted honorably throughout, and
paid far heavier arrears to these very
people, who had, therefore, no reason t©
complain or to attempt to cripple the
management at a time when it is recov
ering from a dull season, and is paying
every cent to its people rapidly. The
places of the retiring four have been
filled acceptably, and the result of the
ripple is to reflect credit upon the ladies
and gentlemen of the troupe who stood
by Eldridge and Hallett and enable
them to make.the holiday spectacle the
success it has proved to be.
CAUGHT IN THE ACT.
Louis Waarner Captures a Thief Who
Stole His Watch.
Last night about 7:30 o'clock one of
the firemen at the Water Works saw a
man pass the door of the boiler-room
toward a locker that was outside, and
told Louis Wagner, who was on duty,
what he had seen. Wagner went to
ward the locker, when the fellow, who
was inside, tried to pull the door shut
and hide himself. Wagner pulled it
open and asked him what he was doing
there, and was answered that he was
looking for his hat, where he had been
Wagner, however, who had hung his
clothes up there, noticed that they were
lying on the floor, and, picking them up,
found his watch gone. He told the fel
low, who was moving away, to stop,
but he stepped to the door and Wagner
heard the watch fall as he threw it be
hind the door.
Wagner took hold of him, when he
struck a powerful blow, which Wagner
parried, and, the other fireman coming
to his assistance, the fellow was taken
to the police station, after a hard fight,
where he gave his name as Theodore
Norther. The watch was found behind
the door, where he threw it.

C. H. Thomas was found guilty in the
Police Court yesterday of stealing a
pair of boots from a shoemaker named
Fleck, and sentenced to three months
in the County Jail. He told the usual
story of meeting another man with
blankets, who sold him the boots very
cheap, but could not explain how it was
that he met this man and bought the
boots before they were stolen, or why
he wanted to sell them again.

present position as Corporation Coun
sel, Hiram W. Johnson, whom Mayor
Hubbard will appoint to the place, in

Devlin rests his case entirely with the
Trustees, under his recent contract with

quite secure in his petition. He has
prepared a communication to the board
Which will be submitted at its next
meeting. It is as follows:
To the Honorable Board of Trustees

nance passed by your honorable board.

may be summarily discharged by the
board at any time, and as there will be
a new administration commencing this

as possible, acquaint me with your
wishes so that I may govern myself ac
cordingly. Should the board not de
sire my services continuued the Mayor
will appoint some person to take my
place, and I shall do anything that may
be required to acquaint him with the
city's business and litigation.
While the Board of Trustees cannot,
in the first instance, select an attorney,
yet when he is selected with their con
sent, he is the attorney for the board,
and he acts as such no longer than they
Hoping that you will let me know
your wishes, and thanking you for the

A Whist-Player's Thrusts.
Dr. Parr had the largest notion of his
own skill at whist and the smallest
tolerance for a poor opponent. A lady
once asked him at a party how he fared.
"Pretty well, madam," was the pleasing
reply, which he made loud enough for
his partner to hear, "considering that I
have three adversaries."
On another occasion he was playing
with Dr. Warner, the reotor of Bath,
who hazarded a finesse which did not
come off. In a minute Parr had flashed
upon him. "Dick," said he, " you have
the cunning of a Bath sharper without
his skill." The next hand that Warner
held was a fine one, and Parr's features
assumed their natural placidity. In a
tone of condescension he drawled out,
with his usual lisp: "I acquit you of
trickery, Richard; would that I could of
