The columns of the rooms as also the oflico wcro gracefully decorated with national colors. The Musical Union orchestra which fraternally volunteered its services played the opening march nnd to its inspiring strains the Invited guests' took their places at the board. At the table lirst mentioned sat W. N. Uabcock , exalted ruler of the Omaha lodge of Klks. No. ! )9. ) On his right sat Milton Nobles , next to him being Mr. Hatch , the courteous and gen erous host of the Barker , who tendered the banquet. On Mr. llabcock's left sat Mr. I. W. Miner , and by his side the guest of the evening , Thomas W. Keene. Around the other tables sat about ono hundred and llfty people of the loading professional nt ! nii'.rcantllo circles. But little tune was lost in Gpor.ii'g the feast , nnd when an hour had passed , nn exquisite oyster supper had been dis cussed. Thu following programme was then carried out : Toant-Master's Greeting 1. W. Miner Our Welcome Guests William V.

Bartlett Municipal Government W. F. Becliel Please Keiclster A. B. Davenport The Social Aspect of Utah C. H. Ott Orchestial selection Musical Union Mr. Keenu introduced his remarks by quoting a sentiment from Chin lotto Cushmau. He then said : All , honor to Charlotte Cushman 1 Peer less in the guild ot our ait among oar hon ored country women. My brothers of the Elks. I greet you In loving fraternity. The senti ments just expressed , which you havn en twined as a garland about the cup pledged In honor of the drama , are ns beautiful as they are suggestive. To the sister aits , poetry , sculpture , painting , the world owes its civili zation. The drama Is practical poetry. It Is the materialism of word painting. The senti ments left to us by our sister come to us ns thu echoes of the centuries before Christianity was even a dream , when Pagan Greece was a model for the world , irom which the expanded woild of the present draws Its grandest Inspirations. In the faraway shadow ot prehistoric time the drama was the literature of Greece , contemporaneous with sculpture. Poetry and sculpture wcro co-equal in their birth. Pericles , Euripides and Terence shared public honors. The monumental marbles that crowned the Acropolis are dust and rum but tbo thought crowded the classic groves or Academus with applaud ing thousands still lives In the studies of the world ; youth ot to-day , shadowed only by the erand conceptions ol the master , of him who wrote for all times. The splendid achievements of man's hand perish and pass away. but mind Is eternal. The drama with us Is Shake speare. Shakespeare Is the drama whoso Hues will live as our language will endure. Universal In their reaching , undylnit In their wondrous thought and expression , as fresh as they were in the days of old Queen Bess- Immortal. In all ages the drama has been a reflex of the time. It dollied virtue , ennobled Intel lect , glorified honor , stimulated the humble and showed vice Its own enemy. 1'alntlnt was but a crudity when poetry and the drama were a power. Until ttm decadence of Greece , and long after Rome had become the mistress of the world under the Crcsars , painting was In Its tottering Infancy , and so continued until Angelo and Raphael rose under the fostering patronagn of the mighty powers of the churcii under the pon- tlfls. They founded tlut school known as the Old Musters old to us now In the march of time , but as compared with the drama , young enough In simple parlance , merely to rank as the drama's great great-grand child. Talking , thinking or writing of the drama , Shakespeare rises before the mind's e > e al ways. Ho Is the be-all and the end-all. How endeared to us of every degree , of every ell me and nation has ho become , Wn are told that there are spots upon the effulgent plenty of the sun. The Iconoclastic spirit of the age Is to drag the Imago from the niche In the Ideal temple whore the Immortal great are lodged In Imperlsable glory. Speculation nnd theory ramble wildly , and may I not say blindly among the mists of doubt striv ing to rob blin of his fame until they are bafogged In the ingenious sophistries of a cipher. A cipher ! Playing on the word what Is a cipher ? Naught I I leave it HO , as the bard has said : "What's In a name ? " By any other name Shakspeare would be cher- Ishered as dearly by the world. That drama which was given to us UUO voars ago , by the poor clover's son , who ran away from the Warwickshire village for his satire on the 'squire of Chalcote and from his bride In groun fanes of Shafting , to liutl his fate In London , or what was given to us In Shaksperean name what does it matter. Hamlet and the other Inspirations of his pen uiiBqiullod since ho lived are Shakespeare's still aud as Shakosporean they will remain to the eud , when old Father Time shall loll up his scroll and say "llnls. " But I detain you lee long. My trade Is to love Shakespeare nnd 1 love my trade. It has grown with my life. It Is the meat I toed on and I thank God 1 have thriven ou It. At the suggestion of Mr. Miner , three hearty cheers were given for Mr. Keene after the applause which greeted his address - dross had subsided. Mr. Koenu delivered his address with the etteriiy and earnestness of a man thoroughly imbued with the sentiments apd feelings to which he gave expression , and was listened to with intense interest on the part of every one present. Throughout the evening the most gen erous jovial and fraternal spirit pro- vailed. Pleasant bon mots were ex changed , agreeable conversation in dulged , while at times hearty peals of laughter told that somebody had con tributed to the general fund of merriment by a happy remark or a play of wit. But among the number of merry people , none seemed to enjoy the occasion moro than did the genial gtiost himself. His genial ity inspired nvery person present , and as a consequence the banquet and flow of sentiment closed as an event which will not soon bo forgotten. To Mr , Balch , the modest manager of the Barker , to whose liberality the feast was due , belong the kindest wisnos of his appreciative guests. Mr. Keene , with hi ; company , and the Elks , from Kansas City , leave for the latter place this morning at 10:30 : , via the Missouri Pacific.
