YOUTH'S NOBLE WORK Thousands oT Thanksgiving Dinners Provided for the Poor BY THE SCHOOL CHILDREN. Relief Hall Yesterday Made to Resembie a Huge Cor nucopia. EVENTS OF THANKSGIVING. The Hotels Will Celebrate the Day With Elaborate Bills of Fare. If the hundreds of poor families in this city are enabled to enjoy tomor row's least day they will have to ti.ank chiefly neither the authorities, the wealthy citizens, the charitable societies nor the churches-. To ih* children—the children of the public schools—belones the i list, Last year the pupils con tributed generously. This year they have outdone themselves. Relief hull. Ml East Ninth street, is the cornucopia of charily for the city's poor. Supt. HuU'hius keeps a careful detailed list of mil persons applying to the relief society. From this list some three hundred families have been chosen as deserting of charitable of fices. '1 he as^reeate list shows an average of seven persons to ■ family, or more than '2,000 people in all. Various churches, school classes and individuals efaofle l-V> of these families, rather more than halt, for'their especial care toil ay. The list includes: House of Hope. 31 families ;room 16, high school, 14: People church, 11; A. C, >: Charles E. Flituer, 0; Mrs. Abbot, 0: Miss Pollock, high school. tj; Max field milling school, 5: F.

In addition to the remaining 150 ram- Hies on the Relief society's regular list, at least Bfly more we re supplied during yesterday by the exertions of Mr. Hutching and his assistants. Only in a few cases were the funds of the society drawn upon for these supplies. All the rest were made nappy by the contribu tions of the public school children. In the above list. also, it. is to be noted that the high school aod industrial school took care of some forty families. Be sides, a great many of the city's 400 school rooms looked directly after two or tinee families that had been sought out b.iy sine of their own scholars. Clothing of all sorts, turkeys, chickens and groceries came in quantities from every side. Scarcely a single scholar failed to bring something. So it may be said that probably 3.C00 of the many who will today dine in comfort owe then immediate Thanksgiving to the little practical Christians of the public schools. A Utopian Dream. All day yesterday Relief hall resem bled a Utopian dream. Food in abund ance was to be had for the asking. The cole restriction lay in the necessary evidence that the petitioner was nut fully competent to provide for himself and family. From 9 in the morning until 6 at nisrht the sidewalk, the en trance, the corridors, were filled with a crowd but rarely seen in our Amer ican cities. They were almost exclus ively foreigner*, most of them women, with i:ere and tilt*re an old man or a lit tle girl. The women were generally without hats, wearing shawls over their heads. Previous assistance had enabled them to be clad with reasonable comf ort, and their faces bore no more evi dence ot deprivation than is apparent in the usual arrivals at Castle Garden. Yet one and ail were pushiutr and crowding each oilier in their anxiety for something to eat. It was a painful, sad sight, and strange to the dweller in the West. The worst aspect of the matter was that, with few exceptions, their necessity was genuine. Secretary Hutch ins was assisted in his hard day's work by the following committee, appointed by himself: Mrs. Hutchins, I.irs. F. .i. Ilaynes. Mrs. El v:dg», Miss Julia Knauft, Rev. W. N. Jameison and C IV. Horr. Each applicant gave his name, resi dence, and details of his family condi dition. In most cases his situation al ready appeared in the society's records, otherwise a little cross - questioning would reveal the truth. If not evident ly an Impostor the applicant received a card bearing Mr Ilutchins' "O.

One man gave his name as l'ollibtscholbsky. or sonic think equally mellifluous, and started in with a lucid Polish explana tion. Guv. Ramsey, who was present, was called upon to interpret the lin guistic mystery. The governor's I'olish i?i a bit rusty, but his German is always available, hi broken sentences Mr. I'tilly, etc., assured the governor that he had but one wife ami two boys aired twelve and eighteen; that everybody at homo was well: but that owing to the commercial depression he would not have as satisfactory a dinner today as lie had desired, especially in view of the fact that other pet-pie were settiur tin keys for nothing. The case was taken under perpetual advisement while a young girl related a pitiful story, She would seem to deserve two turkeys, ex cept that she was not a little girl, but a married woman, half intoxicated, with no children, and a Husband who had frequently defrauded the charitable. But these were the happy or unhappy exceptions. Too ma»y cases resembled that of little Bertha II . uged eleven, daughter of » widow with live children from six mouths to fourteen years of age, and aii girls, except the eldest, who is working temporarily in a tin shop. Mother and baby sister both ill. Besides the public schools, almost every private educational institution joined in tlie good work. St. Cather ine's school especially sent a large quantity of rlotir and miscellaneous pro visions. i'liarit) ol < heir<-li<>«. The House of Hoik cared for some sixtv-h've families in the abrogate. Their supplies were divided between the church proper and the Hope chapel on Bradley street. At Christ chuich the chtrity commit tee, under the active management of Mrs. E. C Dugan, chairman, and in dudittfe Mrs. «I. W. Edijerion. Mrs. B. F. Heardsley. Mr?. ('. E. Mayo and Mrs. Ada Murphy, contributed most abun dant supplies to a score or more of fam ilies. Each family received a sack of tiour. a bushel of potatoes and grocer ies in proportion. "Every day'll be" Thanksgiving for a while in this gra cious Episcopalian environment. The ladies of the Teople's church have given especial care to the numer ous poor families upon "the rlats." In dividual contributions will be distrib uted this year.

WASHINGTON SWORE. The Father of His Country Did This on Thanksgiving Night. A SOLDIER'S BROKEN NOSE. Newly Discovered Letters Tell of the First Official Thanksgiving-. THE BELLS OF OLD TRINITY Rang Out Merrily Before the First Thanksgiving Banquet. The first national Thanksgiving day ever observed by the United States of America owes its historic interest to one broken nose and an oath. To the oath we owe the supremacy of the turkey as our national feast day bird, and to ihe broken nose we owe the only evidence that has come down to us.that (ieorge Washington ever swore. Yet all these important things are collateral to the main fact that we narrowly es caped losing Thanksgiving after all.and that all the tamed men of that day got into a very bitter quarrel over it and ate a turkey dinner at daggers drawn, so to speak. The idea of having such n national holiday at all originated in the fertile brain of Alexander Hamilton. Hamil ton was then secretary of the treasury, antl in August. lTS'.t, he broached the matter at one of the meetings of Presi dent Washington's cabinet. The late (Jen. Hamilton, whose death so recently threw many notable New York families JOBS PKTEK 6AWEL MUm.KXHEKO. into mourning, had a very full collec tion of the correspondence bearins udoii the celebration of this republic's first Thanksgiving. To be sure, there had been Thank.-givings in this country from time immemorial before our gov ernment was born, but the iiist cele bration of a genuinely national charac ter was the one appointed by George Washiuzton of glorious memory. This correspondence is now in the possession of the Schuyler Hamilton* and is au thority for this hitherto unpublished history. lHtlu't Like the Idea. It was in September of 17S'J that the matter was brought to the attention of congress. Reurusentative Boudinot, of Xew England, moved that, in view of the blessings so abuudantly bestowed ou the country by the Almighty, a day of T.iauksgiving be set apart by the president. The resolution was sup ported by Representative Sherman, of Connecticut, but it aroused violeut op position. Many members of congress denounced the proposition as effete and monarchical, and we have the authority of Representative Muhlenberc. of Penn sylvania, for the statement that some members grew so personal in their dis cussions of the manor that blows were exchanged on the streets of New York. It appears from the Hamilton letters, and the fact will certainly sur prise the historians, that Jefferson and Hamilton immediately differed as to the desirability of the holiday. Jefferson was opposed to tha idea because it seemed undemocratic. He was then, of course, fresh from his long residence in free-thinking France. Anything that savored of prayer and chinch oteerv anee iv the government was opposed to his extreme views in the matter of sep aration of church and state. He ex pressed th«se views with moderation and good sense in a concise letter.for be had as yet hardly assumed the reins of office. Unfortunately, the letter which Washington is said to have addres-sod Alexauder Hamilton on the subject is lost. A Fight OT«>r Its Observance. However, the resolution went through congress, and Washington duly aupoint, ed the last Thursday of November, 1789 a* the first of one long line of national Thankseivings. Immediately another CONTEMPORARY CAKICATUHK OP JEF acrimonious contest was begun. How was the day to b« observed? It was proposed to have a monster procession of dizultarieK, beaded by Washington himself on horseback. Jefferson's op position to anything of the kind effect ively prevented such spectacular per ambulation. It was fiutlly determined that the day was a domestic lioliday. and should be observed in the privacy of the home after the good old New England manner. This much w« know from John. Adams, the vlcu presideut, who came from Massachusetts, the mother of Thanksgivings. 'Mils settlement of the controversy was must gratifying to Mr*. Washing ton, who at once intuit- arrangements to hold a levee in true colonial fashion in the presidential mansion. Every one of prominence In the new government was asked, from Chief Justice Jay down. And ike* all came, too, for George Washington was a gentleman, and to be asked to his house was a social distinction, apart from the faci that,he was president of tne United (States. Now it seems that Alexander Ham ilton, eatrrr to do anything calculated to put 1 'human Jefferson (0 confusion, had been or^an'tzijiir all manner of festivi ties hikl observances liKeiy to make of ThitiiU.Hgiviiig a noisy holiday. Jeffer son, o«i the contrary, had held some what aloof from the whole thiiin, for he had too treat pride in his superiority to all affairs of a reliiciuus na ture, and he looked upon Thanksgiving as a BeUgfottl contrivance entirely. By the time the day arrived there had been engendered much unpleasant feeling be tween the cabinet factions, and this un pleasant feeling was communicated to the respective partisans of the two cab iaet leaders, ihe friends of Jefferson did what they decently could to isisore Thanksgiving altogether, as John Adams' letters show very emphatically. Hamilton's partisans, oii tlie contrary, did all in their power to make the day a success, and when the state of affairs was made known in Boston and in l'hiladeiphia, the battle was heartily entered into. Washington had the mor tification of seeiiiit that his day of thanksgiving for the blessincs of Al miehty God had become a source of no end of contention. The Fir«t '1 liankssitius Banquet. However, the clay dawned bright and even warm for New York. The bells of Trinity were rune for an hour and there was a parade of one regiment re viewed by Hamilton from Faunae's Tavern. Then Hie cheering part of the day began by indulgence in various forms of stimulating pereoiatiom, and every one no doubt was very thankful. Washington went to church in the morning, and at high noon began to re ceive his visitors. It was well on in the afternoon that Hamilton's little dinner began. It was rather a famous little dinner in Its day and generation, al though it is never talked of nowa days. It was eaten at Fiance's, and was the first official Thanks giving banquet in our history. Ham ilton was to respond to a toast and then go oil to the president's mansion, out it seems the secretary or the treasury was behind time, and there occurred at the dinner table what would now be called a disagreement among gentlemen. ye have much aiut detailed information about it in the Hamilton letters. In the first place Lieut. St. flair, a nephew of laiiiea Arthur St. Clair. look occasion to say upon his honor as a gentleman that he was sober. An unhistoric uer sonagu of whom we know no more than that his name was Tisdal. and thai he was an alderman and notary, > mpeached -»ie veracity or Lieut. St. Clair, a>id de fied him to prove it. The liuuUn.uit thereupon threw a bottle at nobody in particular and nnsse'i his aim. In an instant, as they say in novels, all was con fusion, and then like » ttou cut of a machine, in walked Alexan der Hamilton. The scene that me this gaze, according to John Adam's account of it, was shaiuetui. Viands an I glass ware and gentlemen were all massed to gether. However, they were sepatated, and Hamilton, dreading the effect of the scitudal if the episode became public property, aid his best to patch matters up. The skeptical alderman appear* to have had ids doubts upon the subject of Lit ut. St. Clairs sobrieiy set at rest, but unfortunately there could be no doubt that the lieutenant's m.se. was broken in the course ot debate, far the Hamilton letters distinctly say so. out we have the same authority for main j taming that it was agreed that a gentle* i man is at times justified in insisting that lie is sober. A Row About tlie Turkey. The next thing that happened, accord- Ing to the letters, was a dispute about the turkey. Where was the turkey? It had not been brought upon the t«biV. There were loud shouts for turkey, but none was forthcoming. A proposition to dispense with that fowl was hooted down, and Alexander Hamilton swore— the Hamilton letters say he or-—that no citizen of the United States of America should abstain from turkey on Thanksgiving day. Weil, they trot a turkey somehow, and ate it. Then they FAUSCI'S TATERJf. drank and cheered and sang songs and sail? songs and cheered and drank. They knew how to observe Thanks giving in those days. Tins little matter attended to, Hamil ton made a speech and hied him to the presidential abode. Here there hud been dignified observance ot the day, but it seems that some Inkling of the little row at Faunee's had got abroad already, and Washington put some questions to the secretary of the treasury about it. Both Kuox and Randolph mention the exer cised condition of the president, and Hamilton seems to have been influenced somewhat by his recent excitement. However it was, Washington at any rate became vexed and indulged in some pointed remarks. Ileadersof the history of the period remember the effective way iv wfcich I'arton, Marshall and Milliard have touched up tbe anger of our first president. Washington's dis-. pleasure always took the form of just resentment. He reseated the whole Thanksgiving episode. John Jay .fives the language or the Father of His Country on this occasion with some pretensions to exactness. Washington whs incensed that a young soldier should have broken his nose in a tavern brawl while professing to be giving thank* for Heaven's best gifts. Our first president went so far as to Bay that it was disgraceful "by God." "By God, sir!" was the most blasphemous impiecation in the Washington vocabu lary, and he used it twice to Hamilton. The first occasion was on this unhappy Thanksgiving. At the second, Hamil ton quitted his master. Thus, in a bundle of family letters, does the forgotten episode lie preserved. Like many another event of the time, it has passed out of human knowledge, and the printed correspondence of the great ones of the time, in which allu sion to it is made, reposes amid dust heaps, and is never perused by the eye of man. But it was a great eveut in its time, and made Thanksgiving a lu—iior able day to our forefathers in official circles. History is silent ou the subject of the future career of the lieutenant's broken nose, but Thanksgiving day has come down to us intact.
