night under the auspices of the expo

northwest and southwest. Incorpor
ated Oct. 19 , 1881 , the Iroqnois club
has assumed a potitlon of national Im
portance , and to-dsy thousands will
read the published speeches delivered
at its banquet board , and make augur
ies for 1884 The gathering was a
largo one and many a name among the
list of guests Is known where reputa
tion and brain are respected and ad
The large main dining hall of the
Palmer afforded barely sufficient space
for the accommodation of the guests ,
and when all wore seated the array
presented was ouo worthy ot descrip
tion. The room was brilliantly light
ed , and the appointments and decora
tions were superb. On a ralaed plat
form at the north end of the hall a
table stretched from end to end , and
before eight long tables , all covered
with snow white cloth , reached to all
the extremities. Scarcely a chair was
vacant , and , looking down the aisles ,
between the rows of Intellectual facet ,
the student of character wonld have
found ample material for reflection.
Overthodooraand windows weredrapod
the national colors , and the arched
f doorway on the north waa hnng with
, \ the fl g made into the form of a
shield , the lower corner shading a
large oil painting of Jefferson. Juat
above the portrait a pretty design in
flowers attracted attention. This was
the emblem of the club , a tomahawk
of rod flowers with a streamer of im
mortelles encircling it. The immor-
. tolles were dotted with violets do
ty scribing the words "Iroqiols Club. "
, ) The floral decorations wore extremely
' handsome , and BO profuse that the
sweet scent of roses , violets and car
nations pervaded the entire hall.
Long intertwining streamers oi
smllax adorned the table cloths , and
ran prattily through the varied colors
of the mounted flowers. Itntnedl <
ately In front of President Pholpj
waa a magnlfhent floral pleco bordered
dored with call lilies and contalnlngal
most every variety of flowers , forming
a beautiful combination of colors , E
pretty bed for the tender violets thai
were wreathed into the name "Iro
quols. " On either side wore pyra
mlda of varlons hned roses three fee
high , and farther down were slmilai
pyramidal-shaped combinations o
roses with now and then opergnos o
parti- colored fruit Intervening. Sim
ilar decorations wore placed at inter
vals on the other tables , occupied b ]
the non-speaking members of the clul
and gueite , A aplendld band of must
entertained with slight intermissions.
It waa not until 8:15 : o'clock that
the company entered the ban
quet hall , though all the guests
had assembled some time be
fore. Introductions , congratulations ,
and Interchange of opinions engrossed
attention until President Phelps gave
the signal , and as the band played a
grand marnh. the formal entry waa
made , Mr Pnelps leading with Sena
tor Bayard on his arm. Everything
had been so nicely arranged before
hand that no inconvenience was ex
perienced by any , and in five minutes
the large number cf gnesta were
seated , and Mr. Phelps introduced
the Rev. Dr. Galntha Anderson , presi
dent of the university c f Chicago , who
said grace. The menu was an elabor
ate affair , and did justice to the ohef
who prepared it.
Daring the dinner the ttrao was de-
rot d to social convene and the dis
cussion of the viands. After the ban
quet the doors on the north leading
nto the ladles' ordinary wore thrown
> pen , and the audience listening to
he addresses waa largely Increased.
The ordinary was filled with ladies
and their eooorta , who appeared very
much interested and charmed with
he eloquence of the speakers. The
adlea wore for the most part guests of
the Palmer house , bat a few were the
wives and daughters of the guests of
.he . club who had come from a dla-
anoe. From the side doors a very
good view of the Interior of the ban-
inet hall and the guests could bo ch
ained. Interest was centered , how
ever , on those who occupied the
iromlneut positions at the raised
.able. . Tne following gentlemen wore
seated at this table : Eraklue M.

they would blow every English man-

BKUUN , April 15. In the rofchstag '
yesterday the minister of finance read
the imperial message. The emperor
says ho always balloved it waa Ita duty
to devote some solicitude for the
condition ot the working clauses M
displayed by the Prussian kings. The
emperor expresses the conviction that
legislation should not bo restricted to
the police and penal measures but
should benefit worklngmen. The
abolition of the class tax was the first
step towards bonofittlng them. The
emperor la anxious in regard
to the passage of the Insur
ance bill , as its failure , he
thinks would hopelessly destroy
any chance of paislng the sick poor
bill at the next session , The budget
for 1884 and 1885 would therefore be
now submitted , to give the next ses
sion opportunities to consider the
condition of the people.
The German , Austrian and Italian
governments are about to consider the
unlawful use of explosives and plans
for the destruction of life and prop
erty generally. Italy has informed
Germany that henceforth no substance
capable of being exploded will bo
convoyed over any Italian railway in
quantities weighing over 100 pounds.
