The 1'renluVnt entered Into the fplrlt of the occaHlon and mado one of the mnu l1lRhtfut Kiie.its of honor that tho club ever has enter tained The club manifested toward Mr. Wil son a most friendly spirit. In fact told him that he was the man to rlm,- anew . the Independence boll, und gave l.lm 11 greot ovation when hU turn came to reply, to the Rood natured fun that the club hud had throughout tho dinner nt the expense-of the lemocratlc party. All of President Wilson's Cabinet ex cept Secretary of the Treasury Mc Adoo were ot the tnbles. For many of them this was also their first experi ence at a. Gridiron feast, und they entered as heartily Into tho merrymak Ine as did the President himself. The usual manlier of Senator, mem bers of the House, foreign representa tives and well known men In tho busi ness, financial and professional world wero present ss Kiiests. The dinner Itself was plven In honor of tho new PreMdnnt. The fun began almost before the first course was served. The diners found themselves Knzlint nt tho interior of a llHhthoiiM--thc Democratic llishthouse It was called. Senator Hoke Smith, who looked as If he were ready to rescuo anything from u four masted schooner to a drowning tariff schedule, enters first. " Tls a bitter nlftht," said Hoke, rub bine his frostbitten ears. "Whee'unh-UKh," moaned the wind and a bushel or so of paper snow fell Impressively. "Ah. 'tis n happy day." added Hoke, "for we tlmple tisher folk In Port Hevenue. For sixteen years the old Democrntlc Unlit has been dark, nut where Is the light now?" The l.lKht I KnrnUhrd. For an answer the property man sol emnly placed a lighted lantern on a con i venlent peg. Then In came "Champ Clark." ' Tl a bitter nlsht," said Champ to Hoke More wind and another bushel of snow Th only "William fl. McAcIpo" followed close upon the heels of Speaker Clark, and with him came further evi dences of the storm without. The trio gazed upon the turmoil. "G () P. liner Tnft la but a hulk on Protection Shonl." said one. "The mizzentop of tho brig Progres ilvn senrco shows above Bull Moose rocks." exclaimed McAdoo, peering Into the outer darkness "VeB. and the swift clipper I'ncle Joe lies whitening on the sands." added Chump Clark. "All are wrecks, lost for lack of light." observed Hoke Smith. "Vou mean for lack of cash," com mented the Hon Champ. Just then Hoke Smith, taking another good look at the storm, nllowed that it was "a black wast for black deeds." McAdoo believed, however, that the wreckers had tied before "us honest coast guards." Hut Lifeguard McAdoo had spoken ton noon, for In the next mo- ment the frightful discovery was made that "Penroce Hmoot, king or tn wreck ers, - had been sighted In the oiling As the force of this discovery dawned on the Democrats within the lighthouse they were cheered by news of the arrival of "Oscar I'nderwood" to protect the onnt The Democrats wero saddened, however, by the added Information that the protection was to be "purely inci dental." But Oscar the protector, had not ar rived alone. About the same time ap peared "Old Bill Hrynn" und his daugh ter "Tariff." the fairest maid that ever nursed an Infant Industry She was the heroine und Oscar's sweetheart. The Democrats In tho lighthouse teemed to be In damrer of forgottlng that It was a bitter night when a mes senger bov arrived accompanied with another large gob of wind ami snow The telegram that he brought was signed "Wnodrow Wilson " It told of the necebsltv of keeping the light burning, because the, good ship "T. Jef. ferson Platform" was duo from Balti more with a cargo of tariff revision, currency reform, trust binders and with the Seven Sisters on board. The Vllluln Cnlrm. But hark, on tho wings of a particu larly violent gust of wind the villain, Penrose Smoot. enters. He sees the Klrl, Tariff, Old Bill Bryan's daughter and Oscar's sweetheart "I'll wreck the Platform," said "then once aboard the lugger tho girl Is mine." "I'll dress you like Sheba's queen," the villain added n moment later, np. pealing to Miss Tariff herself. "No," replied the brave girl, "rags are royal raiment when worn for Woodrow's snkn." Mies Tariff said, however, with a blush nnd a hanging of her head that he was "a poor, unprotected girl." "Unhand me. villain! Help' Help'" h screamed. Whereupon Oscar, the hero, dashed In, absolutely forgetting the announce ment that It was a bitter cold night, and rescued Miss Tariff, There wero many other eventr Ir. tho skit. Including a hand to hand conflict hetween Old Bill Bryan and tho villain In nn effort to see who would put out the light, but finally tho good ip wa. hailed. The guests had hardly finished laugh ing nt this when one of tho members of the club started up a song, a parody on "Row, How, How," and having par tlcular reference to the cool reception that office seekers got at the White Hnusn nnd the turning of them over to Cabinet officers.
