Bryan waa the guest of the Bryan Loagu at a lauquet glren to-night at the Tremont House In oeUbratlon of tbe anniversary of Andrew Jackson', blrtb. Four hundred Democrat, who believe In th Chicago platform assembled In the dining ball. With few exceptions they were resident, of Chicago. Their enthusiasm when the name of Mr. Bryan was mentioned waa unbounded, For nearly two hour, before the procession to th banquet hall wa. formed. Mr. Bryan hold reception In tho parlor, of th hotel. It was originally Intended to hare the banquet on Friday, which I. the aotual Jack.on Day an niversary, but Mr. Bryan had received a pre ylou. Invitation to attend a banquet In Omaha that night and ho accepted, giving; to-night to the Chicago Democrats. Carter II, Harrison. President of the Bryan League, acted as toastmaeter. Mr. Bryan said In lil speech! "In view of the fact that the club under whoso auspice, we meet ha. don me the honor to take my name. I feel that It Is only Just to the club and to myself to repeat her what I have said elsewhere, namely, that my Judgment disapprove, of the use of tny name In connection with Democratlo or .liver clubs. My objection Is a two.fold one. In tbe flrst place. I believe that a cause Is so much greater than any Individual that It should not be bur dened by any mistake, which he may make. Th. other objection Is a ucreoual one. I do not want to stand for four year. In tbe attitude of a candidal for th Presidency. I do not want zealous friend, to be continually alarmed lost I should do some thing to alienate some of those who have given me their confldeno and support. " In the past I bare spoken out upon publlo auestlon. whloh lu my judgment needed to be tsoussed, and I desire to occupy th same position In th future. When the next campaign open. It will be time enough to seUot a candidate and we can then elect a candidal aulted to the condi tion, then existing and fit for th work then to be done. Fully appreciating tbe high compli ment paid me and deeply grateful therefor. I .till repeat my suggestion that my name be no longer oonueoted with the names of clube." Mr. Bryan then went Into an elaborate dis cussion to show that only those who supported the nominees of the Chicago Convention are Democrat. He added: "The election has decided the Presidency for four year., and It lias determined the complex ion nf Congress for two years, hut It has not overthrown the conviction, of those who believe that the gold standard Is a conspiracy against thn welfare nf the producing masses, nor has It changed the convictions nf those who believe that trusts must be abolished and corporation, made to obey the law."

She Find Mraucht Into the World Fortj. Ave Kltlen In Four Tear When Us. tlm.tr Cut Otr-The Taehtam'en Mtiara the Horrow or Her Falthlul Mat. The New York Yacht Club', dead cat, which wa. mourned by her mate, as narrated yester day, was, named Dobbins. Sb. appeared at the club houss In Madison avenue In 1892. She wa. only a kitten at that time and didn't attraot much attention, although .ho wa. an imported Manx and had no tall. In covering ground tho Jumped like a rabbit. In 1803 a name was bestowed on the Manx cat. She wa. called Tnbbina. after Tobln'a bronre. which covered tho bottom of the victorious yacht Vigilant. Tbe T wa. soon changed to a D. and th kitten became known to tho club men a. Dobbin.. She wa. friendly with them all and made friends with their visitors. Dobbin, became so famous that yaohtsmon from all over tbe United States would call at the New York Yacht Club to see tho cat. She waa really looked nn by the New York Club yachts men as their mascot. Erery member of tbe club caressed her whenever she waa hoar. That wa. most of the time, for tho had tbe run of the club house. Superintendent Olsen .aw that .he was well cared for. Dobbin, refused to make friends with a yacht club visitor only one. Then she held aloof from Lord Dunraven. When the Irish Earl wa. In this country and was trying to prnrs that th Valkyrie had basted tbe Defender, he paid sov eral visit, to th New York Yacht Club to sub stantiate bl. charges. Dobbin, wa. on hand when tbe Earl visited the club house, but she left blm severely alone. The fact wasn't no ticed particularly at that tlm. but often since Dnbblna's admirers havo commented on the cat's power of perception. The last time Dobbins was seen alive was on Monday night. It was raining at the time and she wa. sitting nn the front stoop of the Hub house. She wasn't alone. A big Maltese Tom at near her. They seemed perfectly contented and didn't appear to mind the tmurlng rain. Clubmon when entering did: not dis turb them, nnd how long Dobbins nnd her admirer eat on the stoop only the tomcat knows, and ho can't tell, home time after mid- Sight the policeman on post in tho neighbor ood saw a dead rat In front of 00 Madison avenue, directly opposite the New York Yacht IMuli. Thanollcetnan l-oked the cat with hit club and recognized Dobbins. Thinking the cat had died in the club house, ami had Ltuii thrown out In th street, he paid nn attention to the dead body except lu make a note of where It lav, so that he could report that n dead cat .was on his post when he reached the station. hen be again passed tbe dead cat, half an hour later, a live cat stood guard over the dead one. "Scatl" said the policeman after watching the Maltese rat In silence for a few memrnts. To the blnecoat'a surprise the Maltese didn't budge. Th policeman walked nearer. The live cat's eyes glared and lie humped hi. back, making the fur stand on end, lie wasn't going to move untesn he had to. When the unthinking policeman mad a Jab at him with his night stick the Maltese gave veul to a faw mournful im-ows, and Jumped over tbe railing In front of the house at 09. Ills attention was attracted to the .not an hour later by tbe i rylng of a cat. The cries were somewhat famlllnr. but more mournful than the policeman had ever heard before. The dead rat's body wa still there, and the Matteso he had chased away bad come baok again to watch It, Th wails cam from the live cat, whose grief was so pitiful that even the policeman waa touched. The blurcoal watched th pair for some minute, and then walked slowly away without making any attempt to disturb th sole mourner. Tuesday morning tbe Maltese rat was .till at his post. Ilia cries had grown fewer as the day began to dawn. When It became light he sat perfectly sttll and neit-r as much as meowed. He was on the alert, however, for several times, as curious Slogs approached he took shelter Inside of the ron railing, and did not come out until they lad departed. Tbe fidelity or the Tom to his dead mate attracted a good deal of attention on Tuesday. Many pas-iers-by slopped lo look at the deed cat aud the lire one sitting silently near It. The dead cat was not removed on Tuesday, and It lay In the same spot all that ntght. 'i he mourner was still on duty, and daylight Wednesday found blm still on guard. 'I he Tort, never left his mate oxcrpt to Jump over the Iron ratling out of the way nf prowling dogs. He remained at the side of Dub bins until Wednesday afternoon. Then the dead wagonnf the Society fur the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals aopearrd and the body was removed. The Tom stood near by while the body nf Dobbins was lifted Into the wagon. He made nn outcry, but looked i Intently after tbe dead wagon in It started away. He followed the wagon for half a blo-'k. and stopped. He took one last look at tbe wagon that contained nls mate. Then be re traced bis steDS and disappeared around the corner of Twenty-seventh street, going toward Fourth avenue. No one knew who owned tho tomcat, nl though he frequently appeared In the area of the New York Yacht t luo and called to Dob bins. Tbeclubcat nlwa answeri-d his call. Now the club men are sorrv they didn't catch the Mallets rat ami install him In the rl'ib house. He would always haie been a remin der of DobDlns. . ... When Superintendent Olsen learned of the death nf Dobbins he went acroa the street and examined tbe cal'a bodv. Tnerx waa a deep ridge across llie cat's neck. a If she had lx-en run over. The clubmen think that some psnor br kicked the animal, and that as the wa. try ing to escape she was run oter. As soon as Superintend.!! Olsen saw thai Dobbin, was no more, this Inscription was printed and hung up In the yacht club: : WE Mourit or Los. : Donniss, ; Wert . Jan. 0. 1197. ! Captain, the sou of Dobbins, who alio lives at the clus. has been wearing crane lnc hi mother's cleuth. 1 here la a band of it tied about blsnrck. Captain will take bla mother', place a the club cat. He Is one year old. Captain's brothers and sisters are many, and are scattered all over the city. Only a few of them are dead. Here Is a record., road by Dobbins, which the New York 1 aoht Club men frel proud of. It' a record which stands In black and whlto In the club house grill room. It tells how many kittens will mourn Dobbin' loss. In ISfl.'l she gave birth to eighteen! In 1KIM. ten; IHUa. eight, and 1800. nine. Another litter would have been born In two weeks. rrcaldent Oilman In Address Colics Stu dent. Dnll C. Oilman, LL. I)..

IMJM I find that It I. utterly Impossible to harmonize ( iSS the different antl-Hansbrnugh factions, and , Sfl the fight in liable to engender a bitter feeling j ! among the rival faction, and make an opening I .' for a combination of Democrat.
