A larce ' oblong tublo covered with wonderful crea- dons from the club kitchen occupied the centre, and small taMes set for guests were rtngod around it close to tho walls. At the west end of tho room was tho guest table, with twenty-one covers laid, and sur rounded with high-backed, loathor-eovered chairs. The chair ut tho centre of this table, backing acalnst the wost wall and faclnc the room, was lurcer than tho others. This was Intended for tho honored jiiet of the evening. Above It hung a largo American flag, and above that again. over looking the entire room, was a portrait of Andrew Jackson. The large central table was the feature of the decoration. It's centrepiece was an enormous reacock spreading Its wings halt way to tho ceiling, and guarded by turkeys and Scotch pheasants la full feather below and around it. Astonishing pyramids of quail, pheasant, and other tamo birds, whose brown roasted skins were hidden for thetime within their natural covering; of feath ers, skilfully replaced, caught and held the eye. Trailing chains of emilax were woven letween and around these warders, and h un dreds of wax candles under shades of scarlet bilk threw a red glow over all. Senator Hill and his party did not come until P o'clock, but the club house was crowded at 8. The hall was filled with members and guests to a degree which made tho chocking of coats and hats a work ot time. J.

Nelson Smith, the Chairman of Tammany's General Committee, with his bald hend gllstentnc brightly, showed no signs of his re cent illness as he grasped tho Senator's hand and told him how glad he was to son him. Hecordor Smyth, with his kindly eyes twink ling, spoko a feivheurty words of welcome to the Senator. Then the Hocorder moved to one shin nnd remained there viewing the sceno with approving oyus until tho greetings were over, ltcgister Frank T.

There seemed to be no end to the line. An hour hud pnssed and the Senator wns still ns busy shaking hands and responding to words of welcome ns he was at tlrst. The lino was still full of well-known men. Judge Hil ton, chubby nnd rosy, with his son as chubby and li'sy ns himself, had just passed, and moving up to where the henator stood were Civil Justice Kelly.

He hud greeted tho Senator when l-.oll.-starrhi.-d. ac.l ho was Pusy holding a little reception f his own. Besides, he has ample opportunity of greeting the Senator in Washington, and was disinclined to intoitere with le-s fortunate persons. Anout Minuter to 10 o'rlock Mr. Cram inter rupted tho hnrd-slinklng by abruptly taking tho Senator t.y the arm and leading him uway from the line of guests, which still was pushing forward with no promise of tin end. Mayor Grant. Gov. Abbetr. ii nd Hocorder Smyth stepped forward and this party led the way to tho supper room. Gov. Ahbt'ttand llecmder Smyth linked arms and pushed tholr way through thn crowd. Mayor Grant, and Mr. Cram followed. Then the Henator walked ulouu. Tho other guebts tell in behind. , , ., , Entering tho supper room by the south door, tho party marched its length to tho great table at the west end.

Tho room was uulckly tilled. Tho limited number ot seats at the small tables along tho sides woro occupied, and others stood around the big central table and helped thomseltos. while waiters ruthlessly stiipped the plumugo from tho roasted gamo birds. The east end of the room was also crowdod with persons awaiting their turns and inci dentally watching the bright scene. The, re port wont ubrond that, notwithstanding thu earlier arrangement to the contrary. Senator Hill would be culled upon to say a fow words. It was the Sonator swish hot to speak, but tho report went that his health would bo proposed and that ho would probably bpeak in response. Tills served to crowd the doors to a degree which made it Im possible to enter the room after the party was bcated. During this period of expectancy President Coudort. enveloped in an overcoat with a gieat fur collar, entered the club house. Ho ex plained that he had boon detained in Albnny on business nnd had just got in town. Ho was unable to enter the supper room, however, until after Senator Hill had spoken. After supper was served Commissioner Oram rose and tupped gently on the table. Instantly there wus hush, and Mr. Cram said: "In the absence of the President of the club It becomes my duty to propuno tho health of the Hon. Senator David I). Hill, a Democrat, and to iibk that you drink the toast, standing." Tho crowd stood up, and thero followed a vigorous round of applause. Tho applause was doubled when Senator Hill urose slowly to "Democrats nnd fellow citizens." ho said, "I thank you very heaitlly for this most magnifi cent reception, llest assured that 1 greatly appreciate the fact that 1 .una guest of this great Democratlu organisation ol tho cltvof New York, an organization that has among its niemlieib many of the eminent men i if tho city nnd homo of Hie most distinguished Dem ocrats of tho country, Ilaluit that tills ro (option Is not Intended so niueliiiH nil honor to myself us to the Demociatiu cause, with which 1 hne been to smuo ex tent identified (luting the, piist seven years. 1 debhe to t'iy simply that I huvo al ways labeled to discharge my duty to my State und to my I aity. and i.icjuiec with you in thu fact that wo have carried the last citadel of the licpubllruns lutlm Empire Stnto.

By this timo. about 8 o'clock, a gale, varying In force fiorn fifty to seventy miles, was screeching out of tho northwest The course of tho tugs was nearly lu tho tooth of tho blast. They mndo no appreciable progress. Each scow, made ot two pontoons, opening longitudinally at tho bottom, rose high out ot tho wator whou relieved of its load, present ing a freeboard of olght feet to tho wind. The efforts of the tugbontmou were confined to vrovontlng themselves from being blown soa Ward. Thoy hopod to coutlnuo the work of making port utter tho wind should go down u bit. Tho rising seas smashed under the broad bows of thn scows, and the Webster's hawser parted. There woald have been little trouble in securing the broken linn if it had not bo come entangled in the propetlor of the tug. Her engluos stopped, and she becamo unman ageable. She diilted down on the Bcowsthut sho was towing, and tlio gale bore the three boats in a dangerous tangle toward thu Spanish coast. Tho Mcliol was labor ing against sea and wind on the in shore side of tho ill-aided Webster. Tho Nichol's Captain saw the Webster's plight, und. running his scows in toward Kockuway beaeh. bade their Captains cast nnchor on the shoals, and, casting off his hawser, steamed out to help the Webster. A lino from tho Nichol was mado fast to the crippled tug, which had passed a Hue to the drifting bcuws. nnd thu Nichol gallantly btrovo to get tho trio moving westward. She strained nt her hawser, puffed und snorted heroieiilly. but did not gain an inch. Then her water began to get low, und her bkipner decided to return to the citv, have her tank illled, and bring as sistance to tho Wobstor and her tow. Sostie gave a farewell toot of elieor to thu men on the Wobstor and .teamed homeward. Meanwhile, tlio Hag on the bcows and the Webster Hew union down as they started helplessly seaward. The life savers In the top stoiy of the ltockavvay station watched them through glasses until they vuubhod be low tho liorl.on. That was at 10 o'clock yesterday morning. Nearly an hour before the life savers had been uttraeted by tlioNlehol.whlcli lowered her Hug and then hoisted it union down, after having rim in as near as she daied toward Kockuway. Tho report ot tho life savers reached this city just before noon. Superintendent Burdett of the Barney Dumping Boat Company concludod that the scows belonged to his employers. The return ef tho Nichol early in the after noon confirmed his impression. He immedi ately despatched Morau's bip ocean tug Vos burgh t beared for the Webster und the scows. The Nichol. after taking in water, fol lowed the Vosburgh. Commissioner Bronnan sent out tho Strcot Cleaning Department's poworful tug Dussori. and .Mr. F. II. Dalzull said that tho Boston 'low boat Company, wtilch ho represents hero, probably would send out a steamer from Newport. Other tugs wont out on speculation, as the capture of any one of tho drifting craft moans a salvage of several thousand dollars. Superintendent Burdett said that each scow had a little house, about 12 feet long aft. with a stovo nnd coal. The men had provisions for twenty-four hours. The scows wore stanch, but could not btand heavy rolling In tall seas. Mr. Buidottfearod that they might get far out Into thu turbulence kicked up the frosty gala and roll their houses off. In which event tho men aboard probably would freoze to death tt they woro not overwhelmed by tho wnvos. Tho scows cost $12,000 each, and tho Webster is proba bly worth about S10.000. Each scow lias 45 fathoms of chain and a 000-pouud anchor. A do-pateh fiom Firo Islutid at X'a o'clock yesterday afternoon said that the two barges left by the Nieol near tho Hockaway shoals had dragged thoir anchors and were drifting out to sea. Hying their Hags union down. If this despatch is true It is likely that the rescu ing fleet maybe diverted from its search for the, Webster and her bcows by the Nichol's tow. The cruising tugs started down the bay nt 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon on the raco for huniun lives and salvage. Thu Webster and her scows probably had drifted, if thoy still vvvroallopt, at least thirty miles to the nouth eiibt. There is a chance that they may bo passed by some Mediterranean steamship coming In and their crews takon off. If noth ing is heard of them this morning, Superin tendent Burdott will hire un oceun tug. pro vision hor for several days, and go cruising for thorn. About two years ngo a tug was forced to abandon one of tho blglfuiney scows offHoek awuy. The scow drifted for thieo dav.stownrd the Jersey coast, nnd Anally wns overhauled by the tug Luckeubach. The two men on the scow were nearly starved. Thoy hud plenty of coal and kept a lire in tho little house On the second day they appeased their hunger by killing, cooking, and eating n pet dog. Mr. Iturdiitt says there nro no dugs on the bcows towed by tlio Webster. The kind of weather that the drifting boats found off tho Hook is indicated by the expe rience of the North Gerninn I.loydbteumsnlp i'ulda. which arrived late yesterday alternoon. She looked like a shin of glas. so completely was she shrouded (u ice. sho battled ngalnst high seas alt dny long until she reached tho Suudy Hook Hghlbhlp at 4 o'clock. llargen Ashore ut Sea Clltr.

Mfss Mollis Whearty, who is wanted in New York on a charge of defraud lug the Government while in chargo of a postal brunch at tho coiner of North Mooro and Hudson streets, has been in this city since, and was almost captured to-day. On Dec. 10 last tho money order department In the Now York ofllco discovered that there was a sliortago of $:itii) in tho Btation. The young womnn accused William 1L Kennody of the crime. Ho was innocent She was allowed to go on condition that she would be on hand for her trial. To this sho agreed, but she suddenly loft New York, and hor whereabouts was unknown until she was found to be iu Buffalo a few days ugo. Inspector James learned that Miss Whearty and hor brotlior-ln-Iaw, F'rancis J. Cogan. money order clerk nt Station A. had come to Buffalo and had met nt 205 Main street, Buf falo. Cogan roturnod to Now York and llnnlly acknowledged that lie had- met the girl here, and said that she would not come back to Now York. A warrant was then forwarded to the authorities hero for her ar lest. and the t'nlted States Marshal was in formed by Mr. Clark, with whom sho was stop ping, that she hud been at his house, but had left the night before New Year's, nud hud gone toDetiolt.

The soul of tho youth who cnllod tho Proph et Lllas nnmos because ho prophesied skating weather and It didn't come, will bo appeased to-dny. It will bo so cold Hint ovon tho voracious oldest inhabitants may bo disinclined to mako com pinlsotis between Jan. 'J7. 18112, and that frightfully froty day away back lu the fifties. There was a plenty vvlntor yestordny. It wasvlsihlo on tho windows, especially thoso facing tho north or wost. The cold comes from the remote north that Is. a part of II docs. Thoro are really two cold wnvos beating In airy undulations upon our islaud. They formed a syndicate ono from over tho Canadian border and tho other from the great N'otthwest and rushed down on us before dawn yesterday. Tho mercury dropped "JCdccrees In tho three hours between 5 and b A. M., when It register ed 10 degrees nbovo zero. North of Lake On tario tho mercury took a lofty and nrctlo tumblo of CO degrees, or from 44 degrees nbovo zoro to 10 below. Tho coldest half of the dual wave came from tho neighborhood of Hudson liny. Purs wore needed, and allwomonwho ventured out in tho nipping nud discourteous wind woro thorn. Tho prophet declared yesterday that the morcury and zero might shake bauds across the chasm of twclvo mild winters beforo dnwn to-duy. Tho coldest day we have had this year wus eight degrees above zero. The thermometer registered that at Via o'clock this morning. A biting wind made the air ap pear colder than tho red streak iu Per ry's instrument indicated, and shivering folks who stopped to look at it expressed disappoint ment nt its nltitude. Hut thut it was unusually cold nobody could doubt who heard tho sharp, uietalllo screech of tho car wheels on thn frosty trackB nud the grinding or truck and carriage wheels on tho street If the morcury drops to zero, to-dny will be the coldest since 1SS0. Tho lovvost temperature oil blizzard day wus A degrees above zero. Tho, wind that camo down tho valley of the Hudson with the nrctlo weather struck the city at a forty-flve-mllo gait and made skirts fly and sent hats skyward. After an uninterrupted swoop down tho bay. tho boisterous nor"wester ac quired a speed ot 05 miles, nnd doubtless in creased it in the open sea. No sailing vessels came in, und tho bteamshlos that arrived were masked in Ice. Tho Boss were tumultuous along the Jersey coa-t Tho fishing smack L. 11. Miller.

The janitor of tho tenement 153 East 100th street stumbled over tho body ot a man lying in the arcawny nt 8 o'clock yesterday morning. A paper in the man's pock et bore the words. "Thomas Malonoy, 51 Atlantic avenue. Urooklyn " The body was taken to the Last Eighty-eighth street station, nnd word waB sent to tho Brook lyn address. The message brought Daniel Itnnuiian, who identified the dead man as a fellow-boarder, named Moloney, who had left home tho nlcht before saying he was going to a ball at Tammany Hall. Tho Coroner decided that death was due to exposure. It is supposed that Maloney fell down tlio area stops whllo intoxicated aud froze to death. The Cold Wave Up (he Stats. PouGnKEErsiE. Jan. 26.

They had not gone far before they reached a troachoroua spot whore the high wind had moved the Ice, nnd Instead of ico they struck snow-covered water. One by one the fishermen went into the water. They were not near enough tocotiiorto help ench other, and had it not been for the timely assistance of other men It Is certain that sev eral would have been drownod. but by drifting to thick ice all were helped out and sent home covered from head to foot with icicles.

It sseaaal hat also served, in n measuro, to lessen the (taal talk of war that was so vigorous and so gen- CWsaal eral yesterday, although It Is probable thero fHissss! Is no real reason tor the belief that Chill Is Iv'Jssssal rendy to grant the demands ot the President. IrtJoHl The contents of the Santiago despatch can- SHHi not be stated with accuracy to-night, and Jn- sasssl deed there is as yet no oflloial confirmation. sasssl obtainable of the report that such a despatch '-'ssssssfl was sent from Santiago or recoived In Wash , . ' ington. President Harrison. Secretary Tracy. - i?B and Minister Montt refused absolutely either aaaaal to afllrm or deny the report. Socretary Blaine, H moreover, repeatedly said to-day that it any fllal such despntch was in existence he was una- Jsllrsfi! ware of the fact. The Secretary must have ILKi been absent-minded when he gave out this Xufl statement, for there is no doubt whatever that 'ItfSlJ the despatch was received and that it was - 'isHaM seriously considored by the President and P members of the Cabinot to-dny. The exact -SeSswJ wording of the message cannot be learned, "ioRI but It is known that It is a pretended recogni- IfSv tlon by Chill ot tho justice ofiiio demands JimE$ mado by tho Unitod States and an expression J&wiv ot its willingness to accede to at least a por- wJlM. tlon of them. w9Sl' The despatches from Chill are at present m transmitted by tlio Navy Department code. IS5?' and tho ono from Ministor Egan was received jJJffiV in Secretary Tracy's big bureau at an early 5l 6.V hour this morning. It was laboriously trans- SSjoa" lated. as all navnl olpher messages are. and the ?$ contonts were discussed at tho Cabinot meet- &'(j?y ing, which began at 11 o'clock. Neither 'Hlfr' of tho proposals In tho Santiago da $'ak. spatch met with favor at the White House, and ';t2 ' thoso who know what Is going on say that the Vtiffi suggestion to submit the Baltimore case to vitlr arbitration has an offenslveness in its Intima- I'iiAaii tlon that tho subject is still open to argument w'riH' and that tho facts havo not boon conclusively !fs;JA5 presented by the Executive authority of this IMS! country. Those who have had a great deal to ipNfi do with the preparation of the evidence upon feS'Vri! which the President based his message ot i' frazil Monday say that nothing can be gained by re- Jl'"i! forrlng tho subject to arbitration, and that WJw any proposition to do so now In the face of the uM Ri emphntio finding ot tho President is an in- !$ r slnuntlon not only against tho judicial ele- lMh ments of the message, but also a slur on tha ?J B testimony of thoso who wero concernod in ths yrSi ' actual Incldonts. If such terms as those am ija4 m all tho Chilians have to offer ns a reply to the JffiJj jj President's note of tho -'1st instanttlie mattor, ipjj ;, in tho opinion ot tho oftlcials at tho Mate Do- JifjyJMi partmcut, is still remote from amicable settle- IsS ment fiufisTfij Those who hnvo expoctcd war as the ut- lHlt come of the diplomatic incident, and who loolc luEfiai for any sort of trickery on tho part of the au- Islam thorities at Santlugn, aro disposed to regard JMv thn message of to-day as a continuance of tho ssssssn dilatory system ot International Intercourse Rj which has peen practiced by Chili In hor dlplo- H mntla relations with the United States. There are people In Washington occupy- H ins important places under the Ex- H ecutivo who llilnk Chill Is dellber- iKMtl atoly securclng time for the furtherance SiJjiP ot hor schomes, on the completion of which, it 5JwK is suppobod, hho will bo able lo prosont a for- ?iWA mlilablo aspect to u contending nation.
