BANQUET IS HONOR OK
Inaugnratlon of the New Clab-Rooiu
A Xemorable and Festive
Tbe Deutsche Casino, an association
composed of the very best of onr
German ftllow-cit-'xins, and mbrac
iog in its membership men prominent
in every profession and avocation of
life, celebrated its twenty-seventh an
niversary last night by giving a ban
quet at its elegant and commodious
dab lODms, No. t5 Madison
street, whicn have recently been
fitted up at considerable expense, and
which, in completeness of appoint
ment and eleance and taste of its
interior denotations, will compare
favorably with any club in the city.
In brirging about this resnlt much is
due to the public-spirited geneiority
and hearty enthusiasm of Mr. Joseph
Specht, the veteian president of tbe
club, and Mr. Louis Erb, its efficient
The banquet table, which a, laid
for fifty cover?, was spread in tbe
large meet'ng-tojm o! the lub, and
was covered with a profusio, f fanci
fully designed floral decorations and
pyramids of pastry and other bonne
bouchet. Under the arch separating
the rear rooms hung tbe
words "Welcome" in letters cf
evergreen and arba Vila' a foot long.
Promptly t 9 o'clock p.m. President
8pecht called the assemblage to order,
and an elegant repast was served em
bracing tbe following menu:
Fried Oysters, Cold flaw.

As soon as tlio gueBts were stated
President Specht made an address of
welcome, full of eloquent touches, and
at times in his speech the associations
called np by his remarks moved biin
S3 deeply that he was frequently com
pelled to pause to master his emotion.

Mr. Charles llunize was the
speaker in response to the toast:
Mr. Duntza spoke in German as fol
lows: By invitation of your piesi
dent, it is my pliiure to respond to
the toast, "Our Caaino." 1 need net
dwell at length upon the happy
thoughts thai crowd upon me an I
s' and here; we are celebrating the be
ginning of a new era in our club's
history. After a long winter of ad
versity we are emerging into a spring
of prosperity, blight with thepr miss
of future success, and the flowers and
foliage that decorato this room are
symbolical in their freshness cf tbe
new,life upon which we are entsring.
This is in no sense an exclusively
German club; its privileges are open
to gentlemen of all nations and all
creeds. It is our purpose to furnish
en example of what is necessary for
the development cf social ameni
ties and f rater nil intimacy.
For tho success we have thus
far attained and for the results already
accomplished we are largely indebted
to the public spirit and open-banded
liberality of Mr. Joseph Specht, presi
dent of tbe Casino, and Mr. Louis Erb,
as its able and xealous vice-president.
We owe them a debt of gratitude
we can never hope to repay.
It will be our pleasure to exhibit to
tho world a picture of genial good fel
lowship, such as is common to the
German's social instinc't. Hitherto
we have kept our light buried nnder a
buRhol. We intend from now on to
ectsr upon a new policy, and invite
all socially d'epr-sed gentlemen, rf
whatever nationality, to join us. It
will be our aim to introduce into
our club life tome of tbe social
customs made dean to us in the moth
er countrv. and to make our Casino so
welcome a place of reeort not only to
ourselves but to our wives, daughters
and sitters, that all who come within
tbe influence of its nospitaoie endeav
ors shall find that tbey are members
of one huge family. I think that our
Casino will take root in our social
fabric and prosper, and become an in'
stitution that our posterity will point
to with pride.
Onr Former fatherland
Was responded to by Mr. Otto Zahn,
who spoke eloquently of the attach
ment of Germans to their native
country, and the thousand hallowed
associations evoked by the recollection
of tbe dear fatherland.
Dr. Laski, the learne J libiarian of
the association, wai called npon to ex
nlain the meaning of the term Casino,
which he did by tUting that Casino
was the name of a health resoit in
Ttalv. where people flocked from all
- ' . .i i . s r I .1

and (specially the most intelligent

turned to their homes, and so ;t 'Was
that in the course of time lie came
Casino became synonymous with all
that was cultured, re lined and genteel
Mr. Theodore Krekel followed in re
sponse to the toast :
The Cotiotry of Onr Adoption.
By that peculiar gift of discernment
whioh is one of the many good and
valuable qualities of our worthy chair
man, he has seen fit to select me to re
spond to a toast that should command
the eloquence of a Demosthenes, the
philosophy of a Cicero and the elo
quence cf diction cf a Webster or a
Randolph. I can, however, not con
cur in his judgment in this case, no
more than I would find it proper to
call on a neophyte for an exhortation
in a religious assembly. If it was his
aim to select one whose heart is full of
the emotions that should find utter
ance in such a response bis selection
was a proper one. Bat, gentle
men, let me assure you
that his choice has fallen upon one
who is entirely wanting in pewers of
expression requisite to approach tbe
sublimity of hirtbeme. For tbe
honor conferred I am truly thankful,
and hope that you will take the wilt
for the deed, the fllott for perform
ance. Let the inspiring subject and
assuring surroundings voice my senti
ments. The thought of home, although
an adopted borne, is ore that awakens
a train of nobis sentiments in one's
boeom. When the German comes ti
this country be conies to make this
his permanent future home, and very
often comes- gifted with many at
tributes tint go to make a good
citizen. He brings with him his
idiom, his language, bis tocial predi
lections and bis domestic endear
ments, but he comes with tbe deter
mination t be an American citizen
henceforth, and, na'iona ly speaking,
he is no longer a German, but an
American, usually called a German
American, simply to deeigta'e his de
scent, and not with any reference to
his national allegi-nre. When he
comes to America he is not burdened
with a self-imposed task to hel to
regulate from this side of the ocean
tbe political affairs of the country he
has left behind. He leaves that big
job to the Germans in Germany,
and confides in their ability to exe
cute it Tbe causes that impel him
to disrupt bis tocial, and, in many
cases, bis hi family ties and seek a
home in the new world are many and
various. In (ome cases it was his
burning desire for personal and relig
ions liberty; hi, search for freedom cf
thought and speech ; in other cases he
bas tied from political persecution
and oppression, or to escape tbe meted
punishment for being too ardent a
worshiper at the sh ine cf the God
dess of Liberty or his inability to
bring his ideas of personal liberty in
conformity with these ti his i ultra.
In many cases he comes to better
his material condition. But, what
ever tbe causes that led him
to follow westwardly the star
of his destiny, ho finds on
his arrival that he has not
listened with credulity t the whis
kers of but a fancy, or pursued but a
phantom of hope. He finds Columbia's
promises nut empty words sweet
promises ti the ear to be broken to
the heait. In retuen he renounces
bis allegiance to the .country cf hia
birtb, and vows allegiance to the
country of his adoption with all the
earnestness betot by mature delibera
tion. He still speaks the language of
his mother's lullabies, and the
nursery t ties of old Germany are
banded dawn to his children.
Time and distance have not un
hallowed the spot where rocked
his cradle. Hia memory oft re
verts t3 the scenes of his childlico 1.
In imagination he plays on the
meadows where first he plucked the
and forget-me-not. In his
ohm, .. -rs a'ong tho pathway
nightingales sweet songs. But
Wakened from bis dreams to reali
ty, turning his eyes from yon dim and
dial ant vista he sees before him,
stretching from hia verv feet into lim
itless expait'o, the sublimely grand
panorama cf his adopted country ; his
heart wells up In emotion ; he breathes
a tow cf renewed allegiance and
thanks God that he cin say: "This
is my home thia is my country;"
thanks Gol that it is free, from end to
ond, from lake to gull, lrom ocean to
ocena freoai our torrents that leap I
over rocks, bo onr rivers that plow our
valleys, as our mountain peaks that
wear capi of stow in the very pres
ence of the regal sun.
11$, gentlemen, 1 do not ttits this
irTrCnso cf merit, no more 10 than I
would a youth's love f jr the maiden of
his choirc a maid with golden
Irasses, l;qu!d cyea and surpassing
beauty tf lace and form.
Compare the eacnues, tloiign great
they be, with the advantages gained.
we come to live under a government.
the bast uuhr the sun, whose laws
and ro'itic;il institutions are so well
calculated to piomote intelligence,
prosperity and happiness. Our
dreams cf political and religious
liberty are realized. We become
patt and pan-si oi trie government-
subjects and rulers at the same time.
What wonder we stoma so rapidly
acquire a patriotism worthy of our
countrv, worthy of its advantages end
cf iti duties to the world an enlight
ened patriotism of loyal dflvtttnn.
Everything lie re tends to dilate the
heart and inspire tbe noblest senti
ments. Even nature has combined
all elements of sublimity and grandeur.
The sky itself taes dimensions of
grandeur fitted to the glorious scope
of the empire it overhange. It is
deep, broad and lof-y, and should up
raise a freeman's soul.
Nowhere in the calm more divinely
fair, nowhere ia the btorm more awful
ly sublime, nowhere does the sun
Bnine fonh in more peerless msjeety,
nowhere do the slurs beam down with
a more holy luster. Health lives in
every breeia and plenty comes teem
ing from the soil. Bread dominions
to he measured in li aues only by a
scale of hundreds snatjh imagination
from every belittling irJIuence and
carry it from narrow thoughts to
an ennobling excurei venues. Then
there are ocean lakep, rivers
that sweep over cataracts, eternal
and reeietloss, that hem in moun
tains that stretch into tbe upper
light, and mock from their snow
crowned pinnacle the clouds and the
thunder. Through a't the grand
objects our country enriched speaks
a voice for patriot ; in cborus of our
wo:M, t?in pests of our valleys cease
less, sobbing lakes and oceans, vague
low murmurs of forest and prairie,
mighty bass waterfalls, silver melody
streams it speaks, and tbe voice is a
voice for patriot, equity and goodness.
The measure of onr duty is the great
ness of our advantages. To this stand
ard shall we be subjected by the judg
ment of heaven history. With such
inestimable privileges, such mighty
means of intelligence, and virtue, and
happiness, therein room to lcnk for
goou interminably to future genera
tions. Therefore let us not be found
wanting. Id. ' order that such
' anticipation be not empty dreams,
be - tot promises to change,
tito mockery, vanity and grief, it
should be the labor of a genuine and
noble patriotism, to raise tbe life of
th nation to the level of its privileges.

Next came Mr. Louis Erb, in a very
witty speech, in te spouse to tbe senti
ment. Welcome Onr Gneala,
As vice-president of the German
Casino it affords me pleasure to re
spond to this toast, but having no ex
periencs in this line you must pardon
me if I an brief and not entirely to
the point. As our guests, I bid you
welcome to these rooms of our club,
and I trust yon will enjoy tbe few
hours yon spend with us this evening.
Those of you who are tot acquainted
with the German language have
missed a treat in not understanding
the addresses delivered by some of tbe
gentlemen who preceded me, but
there is one thing you all understand,
and that is German music and Ger
man long. No nation can beat us
Germans in that, and I have no doubt

before yon leave as to-night some of
oar members will convince you of this
fact It was determined after we had
rente! these elegant rooms from one
of the gentlemen who honors ns with
his presence to make vocal and instru
mental music a loading feat
nre in our entertainments, and
I think this an excellent time to
make a beginning. It may seem to
yon, our guesU,from the fact that there
are no ladies present on this occasion,
that the German Caiino was organised
for the benefit cf men only. This is
not so, however, for every Tuesday
night we have ladies' night, and in
the name of our clnb, I assure you
that we shall be delighted to bave you
bring your ladies here. I think wuen
tbey see how nicely we are fixed up
they will persuade you to jiin our
rankr, sing our songs and drink our
It may not be proper ti become per

I cannot retrain from saying that
while the number of our guests is
small it is very select Most of you
are, like ourselves, distinguished C'ti
tsns of this glorious Taxing District,
whose destiny is presided over by oue
of the most pushing and most level
headed man in Tennessee. 1 need
hardly tell you who I refer to, for
what Tana Bpecht is to the caiino
Daddy Hadden ia to Memphis.
1 bave special reasons t) be pleased
with Mr. Hadden, for be has recently
built a fine turnpike out my way,
which enables us conr.try people to
itiy at the Opsins later now than for
meily, fir we bave a good solid read
logo home on and no danger if gel
ting stuck in tbe mud.
Bui speaking of turnpikes, which
are benefiting our city and country so
much, I would call attention to an
other of onr guests. Mr. Keating has
for yea's, through his excellent paper,
railed public attention to the condi
t ou of our pulilic highways and the
neresaity f r their improvement, and
I need t'ardly tell you that his ap
peal has been heard, and you will all
agree with me that this county owes
him a debt of gratituda t r it.
I cannot close my remarks without
saying a word to onr guests about the
president of our club, to whose en
ergy, enterprise and forethought
we are in great measure indubud
for to-night's euterta'nrnent In
tbe flret place ha ia the
youngest man in the Casino. No man
has wcrlted more ftithfully than he to
build up the Casino and mnke it a
club worthy iti name. Tun ftct ia,
his heart is in the Casino. May he
live a leng time to enjoy the fruits of
his labor. In conclusion, our guests,
I am g'ad you have come and I trust
yon will come again. You are always
welcome to thete rooms. When you
leave here at a lata hour in the morn
ing I hope you will find your way
lately houie, and reUin a pleasant

Mr. J. M. Keating ro?e in reponse to a
toast to his health, which was enthu
siastically received, and with a three
timea three, and mid he was happy to
meet his German fellow-citrus at all
times, but especially at the fittive
board. Tbe steadiness, the
patriotism and the indus

power of tho German nation, which
dominated by rcaaun ol its high in

arts and sciences. Looking back to the
days when Ktein essayed the task of
lifting Prussia out nf tbe aahes of de
spair into which Bbe, with
all of tha other German ca
tions, had been plunged by tbe
Unit Napoleon, t) this later time, when
Von Moltke and the soldier Ktnperor
had reconstructed the Empire in I he
Palace cf Versailles, which the first
Napoleon had said it was part of his
Hie s work to crush forever looking
back through these years, there could
easily be traced the march, not
merely of the German people, but tf all
those of Europe. The Germans united
in accord with the plan of Count Ca-
vour, t whom modern Italy owes her
nosition and preatigi a plan that
makes language the limit of nations
