Eight Hundred Notables at a
CLOSING EVENT OF A FESTIVE WEEK

Depew At? Addresses by Vice President
Morton and Secretary of State Foster,
Representing the President.
New York, Oct. 14. As if to justify Sid
ney Smith's witticism that every event,
even an earthquake, must be celebrated by
the Anglo-Saxon race by a banquet, even if
they had to hunt a place amid the ruins in
which to dine, New York's celebration of
the discovery of America was closed by a
banquet last night which was in a measure
as successful as the ceremonial which had
preceded it. It is no light task to seat com
fortably and dine over 800 guests, but this
was accomplished by the celebration com
mittee in a satisfactory manner. Theaudi
torhini of the Loxen lyceum, Fifty-ninth
street and Madison avenue, where the feast
was held, is on ideal banquet halL
Decorations of the Itanquet Hall.
. Its beauties were enhanced by wonder
fully artistic decorations and electric light
effects. The balconies were hung with
hand-embroidered designs of the ancient
armor of Italy and Spain on a background
of crimson plush, interspersed with United
States flags and the colors of Italy and
Spain. At the cap of each pilaster there
was a gilt eagle holding an American flag
in its beak, and from the center of the
dome scarfs of red, white and blue fell in
graceful sweeps to the cornice. The dinner
was excellent and well served, the wines
of good quality, and the music in
full keeping with the rest of the service.
The guests of honor dined on the stage,
which was so draped as to resemble an al
cove of the main banquetting hall, and in
the center appeared a portrait of Colum
bus, encircled by the flags of Italy, Spain
and the United States.
'. Distinguished Guests Present.
1 Mayor Grant presided, supported on the
right by Vice President Morton, Secretary
of State Foster, ex-President Grover Cleve
land, Mr. Arnold, president of the board of
aldermen; Baron Fava, Italian minister,
and Mrs. G. F. Wahle, Jr.; on the left by
Governor Flower, ex-President Hayes, Gen
eral Horace Porter and Bishop" Potter.
Among those in the boxes were Secretaries
Husk and Foster (of the treasury),
Senor Romero and Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland.
There were also present the governors of
Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania,
New Jersey and South Carolina, and Gen
eral Schofield and others of prominence.
Empty Was the Seat, IH-pew Was Absent.
There was a vacant-chair at the banquet,
that assigned to Chauncey M. Depew, who
was not present for some unknown reason.
He was to have been toastmaster, but
Mayor Grant acted as his substitute. The
"creature comfort" part of the occasion was
disiiosed of by 10 p. in., and then the "feast
of reason began, the drinking of the toasts
being figurative. The mayor thanked all
who had contributed to the success of the
Columbian week, and then proposed the
first toast, to "The President of the United
SPOKE FOR THE PRESIDENT.
Vice President Morton Makes Some Intro
At this Vice President Morton arose and
"The reason for the president's absence
from these commemorative celebrations is
known to you all, and to the whole coun
try. He is standing in a great shadow, !
awaiting the issue of life or death, aud the '
eager importunity with which the words
brought by wire from Washington are '
scanned testifies to the hopeful sympathy )
of all our people. I lament the necessity .
of taking his place even momentarily, and J
am here to tnank you for the respectful 1
courtesy which has assigned him the prom- j
inent post in these civic ceremonies.
- Added a Holiday to the Calendar.
It is impressive from the events of the
past five days that we have added a new
holiday to the American calendar. The
K'th of October w ill hereafter be marked
with white. We have instituted the Co
lumbian festival, to be repeated at the j
expiration of 100 years, to the furthermost
limit of time, by actors who will not have
been witnesses of the preceding celebration.
The opening pageant has been worthy of
the great pilot and the great discoverer.
It has been applauded by a countless audi
ence of millions of intelligent people.
Thanks to Spall Italy and France.
"On behalf of the president I am here to
especially thank the ministers of Spain and
Italy and France for their fraternal assist
ance, and the representatives of other pow
ers or their kindly approbation. Mr. May
or, with thanks to you and to this distin
guished audience for the courtesies person
ally show to myself, I now turn over the
toast proposed, "The United States of Amer
ica," to the president's principal adviser,
the secretary of state.
John W. Foster's Response.
Applause greeted the vice president at
beginning and end and was repeated as the
secretary of state arose.
Secretary Foster said: "To make the
United States the subject of an after-dinner
speech reminds one of the despair of
the great philosopher Kant when the ver
satile aud would-be omniscient Madame de
Stael demanded of him an explanation of
his philosophy at an evening reception,and
how his despair was turned to disgust
when, after patiently bearing him for ten
minutes, she interrupted him by saying:
'That will do, that will do. I understand
it all now.' I fear I may not have such
thoroughly satisfied auditors as the great
philosopher when my ten minutes have ex -pired.
"However, I venture the thought that the
fruits of the great achievement which we
celebrate in this banquet are most con
spicuously emliodied in that which is signi
fied by the sentiment just announced the
United; States and it must be a source of
sincere regret to you all that he to whom
the duty was assigned should not be able to
be present to make fitting response. Ko
words of mine can add interest or . impres
alveneBS to that great act of faith and cour
age which, since the advent of the founder
of the Christian religion, stands un
paralleled In its importance and usefulness
to niinkind. By means of if the human
race has wrought and is working out a
destiny which was not possible in the old
To Which We Can Point with Pride.
"There are some features which charac
terize the United States to which on this
occasion we may point with just pride. In
no other nation of the world is the re
ligious faith which so efficiently contrib
uted to the success of the first voyage of the
great discoverer so potent in controlling so
ciety, enriching its charities, and elevating
the race. It was in the United States that
civil and religious liberty exjierienced its
new birtli. In no other nation is
education so munificently fostered and in
telligence so generally diffused throughout
all classes. In no other nations are the
masses so fully supplied with good homes,
so comfortably clothed, so well fed.
AN IMPROVEMENT SUGGESTED.
A Little Less of Jiidjc Lynch Would Ito
After enumerating a number of our
natural advantages the speaker went on:
"In the miiNt of our glorification of Co
lumbus and of our own glorification it
may not lie in the best taste for me to hint
at any shortcomings or defects of these
United States. But it is plaiu to any in
telligent citizen that we have not yet
reached perfection iu either society or gov
ernment. Yet I do not promise the unwel
come task of enumerating these defects to
night. I trust, however, you will tolerate
the mention of one, possibly not the most
serious, but certainly of sufficient gravity
to attract the attention of thoughtful citi
zens. In my residence abroad the criticism
most frequently made to me by public men
and Intelligent observers was the lax and
partial administration of justice in the
Mighty Hard to Exaggerate 'Em.
"Too often have I leen made to blnsh at
the recital usually, it is true, in exagger
ated terms of the riots, lynching and
lawless execution Jof punishment upon
supposed culprits, not infrequent in this
country. Usually it is the imperfect ad
ministration of justice by the constituted
authorities which occasions, but never
justifies, these lawless acts; and Inrk of
the derelict authorities may generally be
found a perverted public sentiment. What
a well grounded source of exultation it
would be if to the list already enumerated
we could make the claim thSi. in this land
justice was always impartially adminis
tered to the high and low, to the rich and
poor, without fear or favor.
Hope for the Future, However.
"While we rejoice in present attainments
we shall press forward to greater perfec
tion as a nation in the years to come. Let
us remember that the state is the culmina
tion of human progress the state, with its
organized life, the body politic, many mem
lers, all one, serving the ends of every part.
We are justly prond to point to the United
States today as the achievement of the
greatest results yet attained by mankind in
the way of society and human fellowship.
In the perpetuity of this body politic how
much of blessing is there for this hemi
sphere, how much of hope Is there for the
race in all lands."
Other Tonsts and Responses.
The other toasts were as follows: "The
City of New York," response by President
Arnold, of the board of aldermen; "Amer
ica and Its Discoverer," G. F. Wahle; "State
of Xew York," Governor Flower; "Amer
ican Patriotism," General Horace Porter;
"New York's Legislature," Assemblyman
Sulzer; "The United States Congress,"
Amos J. Cummings. Neither of the ex
presidents of the United States took any
oratorical part in the proceedings.

COUNTERFEIT SILVER CERTIFICATE.
How It Can lie Detected if You Are Very
Washington, Oct. 14. The secret service
division of the treasury dep artment is ad
vised that a new counterfeit $3 silver cer
tificate was put in circulation on Oct. 11
at Chicago, Ills. It has the new back and
is of the series 1S91; check letter C; Rose-
craus register; Nelekrr, treasurer. The
paper is fair, and is an imitation of the
new distinctive distributed fibre paper used
by the -government, the fibre being imi
tated in blue and pink ink by the use of a
feigns or the Spurious.
The face of the note bears a light im
pression wl.ich gives the numbering
(though good) a heavy appearance. The
portrait of General tra:it is poor, the nose
lieing broad and flat. The lettering, with
few exceptions, is good and the small
scalloped seal is excellent in workmanship
and color. The green on the back of the
note is very light and has a blue tinge
and the geometrical lines are so untrue and
indistinct that a little scrutiny reveals the
false character of the nc-te.
I'apnl Delegates Arrive.
XewYokk, Oct. 14. Archbishop Satolli
and Mgr. Dennis J. O'Couuell, the papal
delegates that arrived here Wednesday on
the steamship Majestic, from Rome, left

more. They went in a special car, accom
panied by a committee sent here by Cardi
nal Giblwns. The delegates will visit
ashington and hare an interview with
Secretary of State Foster regarding their
mission to this country. They are sent
here by the pope to thoroughly examine the
condition of the Roman Catholic church in
the United States.
Caught the Glasgow Hatcher.
Glasgow, Oct. 14. The police have
caught McEwan, the man who murdered
the woman at PollockshieldH He had cut
his throat, but will live. The woman has
also been identified. Her name was Eliza
beth O'Connor, and she was a fallen wom
an who had vpent the night with McEwan.
A peculiar fact has been noted that part
of the dismemberment was done skilfully.
This adds strength to the idea that Mc
Ewan may be the original "Jack the Rip

Coffeyviixk, Kan., Oct, 14. Excite
ment was at fever heat yesterday. A tele
gram was received here from Wharton, In
dian Territory, that a large band of des
peradoes had left- that place for Coffeyville
Wednesday night for the avowed purpose
of avenging the death of their leaders, the
Daltons. Informal meetings were held
nnd more Winchesters were ordered by
wire from Parsons and Kansas City. Every
thing was comparatively quiet last night
and few really expect, the desperadoes to
come, hut if they should they will meet
with a warmer reception than did the Daltons.
Insubordinate Itritish Troops.

horses belonging to the Thirteenth com

insubordination is known.
