The World in Columbus' Times.
Mr. Depew then sketched th condition of
the old world at the time of the discovery of
America. It was to them the expansion of em
pire, he said, but it proved the supplying of a
haven of ref atre for individual intelligence and
independent conscience. Thinkers who be
lieved men capable of higher destines fled to
these distant lands from intolerable and hope
less oppression. But it required a) years for
them to understand their own powers and
resources. If the people of the o:d world had
not possessed the opportunity of the new for
their emancipation they wonld still be strug
gling with medieval problems. He then
sketched the history of the lands discovered by
Columbus: how they were first divided be
tween Spain. England and France, and how
England finally dominated in North America
and the great wort or. freedom began in the
The Puritan and Cavalier.
He then proceeded: . "The Puritan settled in
New England and the Cavalier in the south.
They represented the opposites of spiritual and
temporal life and opinions. The processes of
liberty liberalized the one and elevated the
other. Washington and Adams were the new
types. Their union in a common cause gave
the world a republic both noble and free. It
possessed conservatism without bigotry, and
liberty without license. It founded institutions
strong enough to resist revolution, and elastic
(nougb for indefinite extension to meet the re
quirement .in government of ever-enlarging
areas of population and the needs of progress
and growth. The Mayflower, with the Pil
grims, and a Dutch ship laden with African
slaves, were on the ocean at the same time, the
one sailing for Massachusetts, the other for
Virginia. This company of saints and first
cargo of slaves represented the forces which
were to peril and rescue free government. The
slaver was the product of the commercial spirit
of Great Britain and the greed of the times 10
stimulate production in the colonies. The men
who wrote in the cabin of the Mayflower tiie
first chapter of freedom, a government of just
and equal laws, were a lit lie band of protest-
ants against injustice and tyranny. The leaven
of their principles made possible the Declare
tion of Independence, liberated the slaves and
founded the free commonwealths which form
the republic of the United States.
Iiirth of the lulled States.
"Platforms of principles, by etition, or pro
test, or statement, have been as frequent as
revolts atrainst established authority. They
are part of the political literature of all
tiona. The Declaration of Independence pro
claimed at Philadelphia. July 4. lTTti, is the only
one of them wliich arrested the attention of the
world when it was published, and has held its
undivided interest ever since. The vocabulary
of the equality of man had been in familiar use
by philosophers and statesmen forages.
"It expressed noble sentiments, but their ap
plication was limited to classes or conditions.
The masses cared little for them nor remem
bered them long. Jeffer-on's superb crystal-
ization of the popular opinion, that 'all men
re created equal, that they are endowed by
their Creator with certain inalienable rights.
that among these are life, lilxrty and the pur
suit of happiness,' had its force and effect in
being the deli lierate utterance of the people.
It swept away in a single sentence kings and
nobles, peers and prelates. It was Magna
t.TiRrta, and the petition of rights pla .ted in
the virgin soil of the American wilderness, and
bearing richer and riper fruit.
"Under its vitalizing influence upon the indi
vidual, the farmer left his plow in the furrow.
the lawyer his books and briefs, the merchant
his shop, and the workman his lx'Ui h. to enlist
in the patriot army. They were fighting for
themselves and their children. They embodied
the idea in their constitution, in the immortal
words with which that grest instrument of
liberty and order legan: 'We, the people of
the United States, do ordain.'
FELLOWSHIP CLUB BANQUET.
LIBERTY IS A SUCCESS.
Triumph of the Principles of the Ameri
The republic founded in the land which Co
lumbus discovered, the HTx-aker said, had been
no mistake. It had stood the test of a century's
trial. It hail established and guaranteed equal
rights to all; it had educated the people in com
mon schools supported by the people; it had
raised the largeat armies of modern times
when its life was at stake, and at the successful
termination of the war that army had melted
away an I gone into the pursuits of i eace. An
archy had no success with its do trines here
and socialisu took no rst. Religion wus abso
lutely free; it was not supported by tax laid by
the state, but the United States was a "hris
tian country. Ths world had lieen the gainer
by the establishment of this government:
Wealth had teen accumulated, but the condi
tion of the p?ople illustrated the universal nis
tribution of the wealth. In everything that
makes existence a pleasure the United States
offered advantages far beyond other lands.
Literature and intelligence flourished and the
demand for higher education taxed the re
sources of the country. The press was free,
but not debauched. The sum of human happi
ness, in short, had been infinitely increased.
England the Motherland.
44 Edmund Burke, speaking in the British par
liament with prophetic voice, said: 4 A great
revolution has happened a revolution made,
not by chopping and changing of power m any
of the existing states, but by the appearance of
new state, of a new species, in a new part of
the globe. It has made as great a change in all
the relations and balances and gravitations of J
power as t tie appearance oi a new planet would
in the system of the solar world.' Thus was the
humiliation of our successful revolt tempered
to the motherland by pride in the state created
by her children. If we claim heritage in Ba
con, Shakespeare, and Milton, we also acknowl
edge that it was for liberties guaranteed Eng
lishmen by sacred charters onr fathers tri
nnipbantly fought. While wisely rejecting
throne and caste and privilege and an estab
lished church in their new-lorn state, they
adopted the substance of English liberty and
the body of English law.

festation of hospitality on the part of prom

one of the most notable in the history of
the country. Never before have thirty

chief executives differing in politics, and it
may lie imbued with more or less sectional
feeling, sat together at the same festive

of the science of diplomacy clinked glasses
and sipped to the health of one another. As
a social function it was a triumph that has

f.t Kinsley's , .resented a picture worthy the
lirosh of the most eminent of artists. Over
the chair of President J. W. Scott, the red,

flags of all nations were gracefully
festooned. The American and Sjtanish
colors, however, predominated. Five
hundred elctric bulb lamps grouped in the
ceiling and skirting the gallery lent a sub
dued radiance to the scene, while the token
"Fellowship"' was descrilied by electric
p lobes on the main panel between the
windows on the south.
The Feature of the Iecorr tiona.
The choicest gems of the hot-house shed
their fragrance from the tables, while the
gallerywa 1 tstooned with smilax, behind
which a mandolin orchestra discoursed the
sweet and subtle airs of Spanish land. The
China table service alternated in red and
yellow, the Spanish national colors a deli
cate and at the same time novel tribute to
the nation that stood sponsor to the great
discoverer. Hut the feature of the decora
tions that attracted the greatest attention
and was productive of the greatest enthusi
asm was the Administration building in
miniature. It rested upon a low platform in
the middle of the hall, fronting it was a
miniature inlet and a grand canal, lioth
filled with water, and between them a
lovely piece of green sward, hedged with
flowers. The miniature building itself was
illuminated from within by electric lights
while a prismatic fountain tossed the
choicest of perfumes high in the air in hues
of the rainliow.
At the Table of Honor.
The banquet la-gun at 7 o'clock. A few
moments liefore President James W. Scott,
with Vice President Morton leaning on his
arm, had led the procession through the
corridor and into the brilliantly lighted
hall. The table of honor extended from
north to south, while four other tables
rested at right angles. Covers were laid
for 100 guests. Vice President Morton had
the seat of honor to the right of the presi
dent and Cardinal Gibbons sat on the left.
Near to the vice president sat ex-president
Hayes and Iiarou Fain, dean of the diplo
matic corps, while Cardinal (iibbons count
ed among his neighbors Secretary Charles
Foster, Postmaster General John Wana
maker, the Chinese Minister, Archbishop
Ireland, and Minister Robert T. I ancoln.
Others of the Guests.
The guests seated at the connecting
tables included most of the members of the
diplomatic corps, General Schofield, Sena
tor Sherman, Henry atterson, Chauncey
M. Depew; Bishop Fowler, of California;
all of the visiting governors, the judges of
the supreme court: Hon. Alfred Carpmael,
royal commissioner from Great Britain;
Secretaries Tracy and Noble, Attorney
General Miller, Justices Brewer and Har
lan; Senators Manderson, of Nebraska, and
Cullom, of Illinos; Richard Harding Davis,
editor of Harper's Weekly, and Richard
Watson Gilder, editor of The Century;
Joseph Keppler, editor of Puck, and George
W. Childs, of the Philadelphia Ledger.
After the good things had been disposed
of speeches were made by Vice President
Morton, President Scott (of the club),
Vhitelaw Reid, ex-President Hayes, and
Others. A toast to the president of the
United States was drunk standing.
Ten Thousand People at m Ball.
The reception and ball tendered to the
visiting civic and military visitors at Six

arrive shortly before 9 o clock, and the ball
was still iu full blast nt 2 a. m. Ten thou

the prominent visitors in the city, includ

Illuminations in the City.
Last night a number of buildings in the
city were illuminated with strings of elet

looking at the decorations. Among tie

The business was established in 1829, and
has passed through several generations and
various changes in stvle. Feb. 1, 18s0, th
style was changed to C. Burkhalter & Co.
composed of the present partners. Charles'
Burkhalter, of the present firm, is a nephew1
of Charles Burkhalter, founder of the
house. The partners have declared right
along that they were worth $:300,000 over
and aliove all liabilities. Charles, the seniof
partner, has been in poor health for siX
months past, but has been able to attend to
business off and on.
Very Heavy Liabilities.
John H. Burkhalter was at the store yes
terday. He said: "We preferred only
our confidential debts to secure money
which we borrowed from our friends. Be
sides the preferences there are, I should
think, about iV,0f0 in notes out, and the
rest of our indebtedness isformerchandise."
Mr. Burkhalter oould not tell definitely
what the liabilities were, but finally ad
mi t ted that he thought they were between
f.iUtl.OOO and J700.000. The assets, he said,
aren ominally larger than the liabilities.
Creditors Are Much Excited.
The failure has caused a great deal of ex
citement among the creditors, and some
very severe criticism. The firm has always
stood well in trade circles, and its paper
sold well. On the strength of this reputa
tion, it is said, the partners borrowed largs
sums of money up to within a day or tw
of their failure. They also lnmght goods
on credit this week. Their purchases were
made and borrowed money was obtained
on the representation that they were per

A creditor said after interviewing John

Burkhalter put as the limit, but he felt
