Philadelphia Times : Kxucption Is
taken in liitfli quarters to the statement
In Inst Sunday's Tinii's that wudilltiK in
vitations do not require nn jinswcr. They
Ccitalnly do not require an answer ns a
rulu , find IIH a Koncrnl tiling nrc not an-
Kwcrcd. Hut there ro except ions. His
generally understood that an invitation
to a church wedding does not require
any acknowledgment , though man.y con
tend tlintit is only optional , and though
thu person invited is frcu to take no no-
tlco of the Invitation it is ns well to do so
nnd nioro polite. As a matter of fact , tlio
number of people who acknowledge Invi
tations to church weddings is exceedingly
email. It is stoutly contended , however ,
nnd with much force , that - * to
n wcddinir at homo should be acknowl
edged and either accepted or declined ,
for the reason that on such occasions
bomo sort of entertainment is always
provided and it is necessary to know
liow many to provide for , especially when
the number of invited guests is likely to
bo large. Yet thero'aro many who think
that invitations simply to a wedding cor-
Oiny in the daytime , when there is no
reftOJir reception , ito not demand a
formal acknowledgment. Jt is , of course ,
totter etiquette on such occasions to send
The whole diflicnlt.v aboutweddiug'eli-
qnel and the dincrcnco of opinion that
exiats on so many points Is the result of
the false and loose methods unit the hol
low mockeries and shams into which
people have been drifting for several
years. Weddings , which were once the
most charming , as well as the most beau
tiful of social events , incidental to the
home life , have been allowed to become
to a great extent mere spectacles for the
exhibition of vanity , The bride commis
sions someone to look after her dresses ,
the bridegroom appoints Homo one to
lure carriages , employ clergymen , etc. ,
and the bride's family put the whole ar
rangement of the house , the church , the
feast , etc , in the hands of some caterer
or decorator. The getting up of the in
vitations is plven to an export in such
matters in some shop , and very often the
invitations are sent out wholesale by
some one who is employed for the pur
pose. People invited go or not , as thoF
feel inclined , and go to shops and
order presents sent in the most
perfunctorj wuv , so that the bride is as
likely as not to" get twenty vases , or u
dozen lamps , or hity spoons of different
patterns. Where presents are scut they
should , if possible , bo bent early , so as to
give the bride-elect wlonty ot time to
acknowledge thorn ; and if worth sending
nt all they deserve that some time and
care should bo given to their selection.
It is a common thing to hear brides sav
that of all their wedding presents they
appreciate and value most the few appro
priate and often inexpensive things tUat
como from their intimate friends. It
should not bo forgotten Hint a weddine is
the lirst , choicest , and most important of
all social incidents , and that au invita
tion to one is one of the greatest compli
ments that can bo conferred. Invitations
to balls dinners and parties may bo per
functory and meaninglesstbut almost
without exception it is only friends or
acquaintances who are honored who are
invited to a wedding , and a point should
always bo strained to make some sort of
Brilliant Opening Rail.
The opening ball of the Metropolitan
club was a most brilliant all'air , the at
tendance including not onlj the entire
membership but many outsiders. The
grand march Jormcd at 9:150 : o'clock and
dancing was Tcopt"up tjll dawn. The
affair was exclusively full dress , and
nianybriglit toilets and handsome women
added unusual attractiveness to the scone.
The programmes were in keeping with
the general elegance , being tinted linen
with the name of ttio club in illuminated
lettering. The Musical Union orchestra

"Ono Mnn'H Opinion. '
OMAHA , Oct. 15. To the Editor of the
BIK : Yesterday morning's Republican
contains an article headed "Ono Man's
Opinion , " which is deserving of some
attention trom those interested in the
construction of the "Omaha , Nebraska &
Dakota railroad. " The articlein , ques
tion purports to bo an expression of the
profound convictions of n "very promi
nent tralllc otlicial connected with one of
the railroads centering in Omaha , "
although just why this flimsy attempt to
conceal his personality is made , is hard
to conceive , inasmuch as in advocating
the desirability of having "the Union
Pacific company back of them as an as
sistant , " ho completely betrays his con
nection with that "solid friundand main
stay of Omaha , " We "aro theroTftre justi
fied in crediting this powerful argument
to a very prominent trallic ollicial of the
Union Pacific railwav company.
It is just hero to bo remarked that a
wonderful singularity of views is dis
coverable between this expression of
"one man's opinion" and those an
nounced by P. C. Himebaugh , csq. , in
last Tuesday's Herald , which may possi
bly bo accounted for on the generally re
ceived maxim , that great minds often
run in the same direction without the in
tervention even of personal or immediate
interchange of ideas.
The "very prominent , etc. , " betrays a
most philanthropic eagerness to protect
Omaha capitalists from the ( lire results
sure to follow unless they oiler them
selves willing victims to the Union
Pacific railway , but let mo suggest the
possibilities of the aforesaid capitalists
being abundantly able to take care of
their own interests in the future ns well
as in the past , and , that in building our
road , they stnnd at least ns good n chance
of surviving the knifing process as does
a corporation confessedly to-day at tlio
merey ot the general government for its
ability to protect itself. Thn promoters
of our railroad are thoroughly alive to
the requirements of the situation , and be
lieving its construction to bo the most
powerful argument to compel fair treat
ment from existing lines , as well ns to fix
permnnnntly the values ot Omaha , real
estate and its further appreciation are
looking rather to the attainment of such
results than for immediate returns to
their investment. It has never been
held that the Union Pacific railway or
the B. & M. , or any other road uro "do
ing everything in their power to injure
tins city1 this is an entirely gratuitous
assertion on the part of the "very promi
nent" and ono that no one knows better
than himself has no foundation in fact.
Rather has it been said that none of thu
roads in question exhibit the least dis
position to relieve us from most un
righteous discriminations , although im
portuned for months past to do so , and
by this cavalier treatment of well
grounded complaint have finally forced
us to railroad construction as a linnl
remedy. May it not bo possible- that
those in charge of the new enterprise
have already sought and found that
powerful aid through whoso assistance ,
it may solve the conundrum , "how long
will it take the Northwestern to swamp
them ? " Answer a thousand years.
O. N. D.
Caprices of tlio Qtionn.
London Truth : Them is absolutely no
foundation whatever for the statement
in thu World that the princess of Wales
was "recalled" from Copenhagen by the
queen , because her majesty "is most
anxious that no encouragement should
be given by the English rovnl family to
the suit ( sie ) of Prince Walucmar of Den
mark for the Bulgarian throne. " This is
egregious rubbish. There has been no
' "recall , " for it was always arranged that
the princess should return last week to
England , in order that she might bo back
to accompany the princa to Aborgeldio
nt tlio close of the Doncnstcr meeting.
Tlio opinions of "the English royal
fnmily" certninly would not bo likely to
swny Prince Wnldomar , who knows very
wclitlmt the only two persons whoso np-
proval is required are tlio emperor of
Russia nnd Prince Bismarck. The World
is also entirely wrong in announcing that
Lord Salisbury "will veto thu Russian
nominee" to the throne of Bulgaria. He
certainly will not do anything so em
phatically idiotic. There fa no use in
exorcising a "veto" unless you are able
to enforce it , and there is no earthly
reason why England should object to
Prince Waldemar'g candidature. The
country can not afford to regard the hair-
brained caprices of the queon.

young men ? " Not in the street car ,

Omaha people will disagree with me , yet 1
tuel it my duty to caution you and that from
n purely business standpoint , and In common
