J TOflSTAND JjBBT IS ORDER Another One of the Gridiron Club's Famous Dinners. - IT WAS PERFECT, AS USUAL Wit and Humor Enlivened a laiculi, lean Fenr Noted Men of the Xii tion Came From Near ami Far to Snealt and lie Suolceu To Some Striking Incidents. The black-barred flag that floated all j-esterday nboe the AiPngton Hotel gave"" notice of tlie Gridiion Club dinner of la&U. evening. It was Gridiron Twelfth Night. This famous club was organized an even dozen j cars ago, and during its long and' successful existence has given many re markable dinners, and those held upon Its,, recurring anniversaries have been the moht attractive and interesting of all. Kadi j ear the only doubt left in the minds of. participants in its charming entertain ments, lias been whether it were possible' for the club to outdo its labt annual, and. every jear it has agreeably disappointed these friendly questioners by surpassing all preceding events m Its history in ele ganee and excellence. Last night's dinner was no exception to- ttiis rule. In tlie matter of decoration, en tertainment and distinguished company, it was more than the equal of any of its pred ecessors aim iiocuiinstniitung the mauj novelties in the art or dinner-giving which this club has presented in tlie past, it lust night demonstrated that it knoWR still otlier dining feats to conquer. Tlieadnnialtle banquet hall of the Ailing ton, beautifully as it lins been decmated in the past, itever presented a more at tractive appearance than as arranged last evening Small, the club decorator, called to his aid Messrs. Ciune, of Patert-on, and Galloway, tlie electrician. The former festooned the walls ot tlie large dining hall with a while, filmj' cloth, and so curtained the gie.it inirrois that the room looked nore like a great salon than a public banquet hall Over all these, tlie florist hung wild hiinlux in graceful pro lusion, and the electrician arranged tile lighting, so as to make an extremely beau tilul eifecr. The huge chandeliers, which adorn tlie banquet hall on ordinary oc casions, were removed, and tlie room was illuminated solelj by inanj clusters of small arc lights attached to the ceiling. The usual gridiron shaped table was used, and it was elaborately decorated. The head of the table was banked up Irom the floor with plants and jars of riower. and on tlie table, finishing tlie picture, were tows of raie and delicate oicluds Tlie menu need not be detailed It was of the best al forded bj the ample cuisine of the Arlington, ami, nonwlhstuiidiug the man j peculiai interruptions, necessitated' bv the extensive, often astonishing, andal wajs unusual program of entertainment winch 1 lie club intersperses through tlie dinner itself, was adniirablj served President S B. Johnson presided in a characteristically felicitous manner lie was particular! j happy iu all introductions of distinguished guests and enlivened the proceedings with many witty interjec tions A new departure, which was much enjoyed, was bright parodies of verses of familiar songs with w hich he brought out Chauncey Depew, Kev. T. DeWitt Talmage and others ot the more notable among the many distinguished persons present Tlie dub membership was not idle In the meantime The interruptions of guests is one of the practices which the club has relegated to oblivion Onlya few comments were interspersed thioughout the many excellent speeches bj guests and tlicv- weresplei'didlydireetedandalvvajsbrought down their men It was In the case of the Comptroller of the Currency, Mr Eckels, that the club plaveil its strongest p tacti cal joke The president introduced tlni Comptroller in a few flattering words Objection was promptly made bj a mem ber of the club to the effect that when the Comptroller Inst appeared at an annual dinner he talked tooiongand said too much This stamped him as dangerous, and therefore the club, rearing .1 lepetition of former long suffering, had arranged a device bj- which a short speech wasren deredcertain lmmediatelj'astrong-throat-ed phonogiaph began to reel off a special speech, hich It was asserted Mr Eckels had prepared for the occasion. This con sisted verj largely of nursery rhjmes adapted to current political events and w.;s received with heart v appreciation Earlj in the evening the proceedings wei e enlivened bj' a verv- amusing one-sided telephone talk with the Major at Canton. This conversation was conducted bj' ex rrcMdeut Annul, and many facts were elicited of keen interest to members of the company. Tor instance, Mr 15ou telle, of Maine, was informed through tlie 'phone that a special deliv cry letter was coming Tor him from Canton A few f-econds later a member of the dub, dressed as a, letter-carrier, appeared, carrjmg on ins shoulder an enormous portfolio, on which tlie word "Navy" stood out m Isold, black letters. Tins was carried clear round the table to Capt. Boutelie'i seat near the president of the club Then the portfolio was opened. The only thing it contained was a huge card bearing the brief and brutal legend "Nit " The menu card was strikingly novel. The club has alwavs succeeded m making tlice cards valuable and attractive soie mrs of its dinners and the one tins jear was most unique. It was in tlie Term of a roj-al flush of clubs The faces of the double-headed cards bore giotesque pic tuics of McKinlcy and Brvan as kings; the regent ot Spain and the discarded Libuokalaui, as queens; ILiniia and Jones as knavcd, aud a miscellaneous assortment of incoming and outgoing small frv- poli ticians as spots on the tens. The backs of the cards served to convey to the guests the mum, the list of those present, the club membership and officers and otlier interesting facts. Late in tlie evening there was one of the keen batireson current political events for which tlie club is noted. It was the proposal to annex the Island of Ireland and served as a - chicle for a thinly-disguised discussion or the acquisition or Cuba. Correspondents W j nn e, Stevensand Hosfoid, representing Senators Cameron. Hale and Chandler indulged 111 a spirited debate or the annexation resolution. Sena tor Hale opposed it because It would seriously disturb our social relations, and Chandler favored it on the general principle of grabbing everj-tlung we can get. The resolutions passed with a whoop. Pres ently, however, Correspondent Dunn, lep resenting Mr. Secrctarv Thurber, brought in tlie announcement that the resolution was returned without the approval of the President. He also announced that he brought the Senate certain documents by Olney, "on unlimited monarchy and tlie decline and fall of the Senate." "I am also dnccled," continued Thur ber's counterpart, "on behalf of the Presi dent, to say to the honorable Senate, "Bats, and otlier tilings to like efrect." The dialogue nvas enlivened by a tele phonic by-play, in which a prominent; Senator and a leading newspaper man of the city were represented as .selling stocks when the leiolulioa pas-sed, and going broke when the President intervened. A feature of the evening -was the pic- DR. WALKER, 1411 Pa. Ave. TALKS ON DISEASES 'AND DISABILITIES OF : : ...... men. "Po vnn fiil inr..- Hn.i in -.lio miiinln! i .Uian on going to bed?

Ilie lusty smooth-faced baby was soon relieved of his swaddling clothes and took ids place among the banqueters. Much might well be Said br the ninny humorous .mil entertaining speeches made by the famous men who gathered about tlie board. There was the most distinguished aiter-dlniiei talker of tlie world, Chauncey M. Depew, whoH proud boast Is that he is a chronic guest or the Giidlron Club; Dr. Talmage, Vice President Stevenson, Speaker Reed. SwreUrj Morton, Senators White and Gorman, Capt.

Incidentally they also receded the in eignia or the peacock feather and jellow jacket, which latter proved to be a jellow garment, whlfh converted these otaid gen tlemen Into veritable Hogan's Alley kills to the great meniuient of the companj.

Tlie work of the oichestra and the Grid iion Quartet was excellent Tlie irrepres sible Major Stoicr delighted the company witli ins songs and banjo; the saxophone iolo and chorus rendeied beautiful music and tlit full orchestra came in for its share of praise. Tlie saxophone solo, "Rocked In the Cradle or tlie Deep," was given by Mr. Eugene Coffin, and Tor an encore a "triple tongue" polka was rendeied. Mi Coffin is said to be the only man in the United States who can "triple tongue" on the saxophone. He has remarkable control or tlie Instrument and his plajing was highly enjojed Later In the evening a quartet of saxophones were introduced, the per rormeis being Messrs Ter Linden, alto; Phil ips, soprano; Ilochfield, tehor, and Seven hujsen, baritone, all of the United States Marine Band Tlie piece was "The Hun ter's Joy," arranged specially for the oc easion bv- Mr Ter Linden.

The storm of applause showed that the audience was a unit in fa"or of the bio graph." Evening Times. "The biograpli pictures are nearly double, the size, clearer, steadier, and brighter than those of the cinematographe." rost "The biograph is a great impiovemcnt in many ways over the cinematographe, which has been operated here for some time. There are 110 blurring effects, and all the views need to make them abso lutely lifelike are color and sound. livery motion is there, and some or the views are startling in their triteness to life."

THE SEMMONS CASE AGAIX Further Development Expected From the Executive Hoard. It current relHjrts be true, the coming week -will bring forth some interesting developments in local labor circles. A prominent member of organized labor said yesterdaj- that lie understood that a meet ing of the general executive board of the Knights of Labor had been called to con sider tic troubles which had latelj- been agitating the local labor bodies. It was also rumored, he said, that the principal object of the meeting was to open up anew the "Simmons case,' and, if iossi ble. adjust the differences amicably. In tliLs tonncction it is stated that Mr. Simmons expulsion from the Knightf. of Labor was not strict! j- in conformity with the law of the order, and this part of the procedure, at least, will be rescinded ami new action taken. Furthermore, it is reported that the immediate ground for expulsiou is a question of veracity be tween two prominent leaders, and this also will be investigated by the general executive board. It is also rumored thcx charges will be preferred against one ot the general executive board by one of the locd.assera Mies. Two Xonnijsters Arrested.
