Last night , thn second annual banquet
of thn Omaha ( Jim club took phcc at the
Millard hotel. It was held In the newly
decorated and beautified dining hall ,
which was illumined with scores of bril
The opening was set for 0 o'clock ,
nnd at that time nearly all of the mem
bers and tlio invited guests had
assembled in the parlors. Afowminutos
of agreeable greetings nnd conversation
were indulged , and then , at a given
signal , tlio guests formed in line , nnd
tinder the rscort of Messrs. T. II. Cotter.
George E. Kny , and O. F. Bruckcr. filed
into the banquet room.
But a few minutes sulllccd to scat the
guests , nnd when this was accom
plished , the tables ranged in a
quadrilateral , were surrounded by
ns genial , gentlemanly nnd imposing a
number of epicures as over graced a
board In Omaha ,
The head was toward the west , and in
the middle al.Iell'W Bedford , president
of the club. On his right sat B. K. B.
Kennedy , of thu old Omaha Sportsman's
club , wliilo his left was sustained by Dr.
J. II. Peabody , who , though a resident of
these parts for nearly a quarter of a cen
tury , yet lacks the distinction of what , in
Btereolypcd parlance , is denominated an
old settlor. On either side of thesn gen
tlemen ranged other old sportsmen , in
terspersed with representatives of the
Herald , World , ! : : and Republican. At
the other extremity of the table sat Gen
eral George S. Smith , vice inosldentof the
olub , .supported by ( J. B. Lane , the
secretary" and treasurer , and George
K. Kay , ono of the mem
bers of the board of managers , as
also ono of thn most energetic and useful
members of the association. In the mid
dle of tin ) side tables sat the captain of
each of the two sides which lately in
dulged in the hunt , the vanquished
in which were taxed with the responsi
bility of furnishing Iho feast , at which
nil had -gathered. The captain on the
right wati Dr. H. A. Worley , whoso side
consisted of the following huntsmen :
John K. Stout. F. S. Parmnlco. George
K. Kay ' , II. B Kennedy. Gcorgo S. Smith ,
T. H.'Cottor , F. II. Simons. A. S Patrick- ,
J. B. Evans , Sam Usher , P. II. Eustis , G.
S Mills and . ) . W Holmes. The captain
on the. lefi was J. J. Ilardiu , whcsn
subordinates comprised tlio following1 :
J. W. Petty , IT. A. ronrohe , C. B. Lane ,
The captain and members first men
tioned wore victorious , making a total
score of 1.-108 points , while Captain liar-
din's side made 1/4EJ3 , lliuslosin" the con
test by but thirty-live points. Tlio leader
in tlio shooting was General G. S. Smith ,
who made i total of : & 3 points , and this
factscomed to give as much pleasure to
the other competitors as it did to the gen
Besides these members , tlio invited
guests were B. E. B. Kennedy , Dr.
J. H. Peabody , S. B. Hathaway ,
C. II. llriggs , K. N. Walker ,
O. H. Gordon , C. J. Williams
J II. Griflin , W. S. Wing , Henry Griso

High , O. M. Dorrance , Chas. Balbach
Captain M. 1'arrell , Gcorgo B. Kddy , of
the Excelsior ; 13. C. Snyder , Republican ,
nud S. Woodbridge , World.
Among these were a few old sportsmen
such as Messrs. Withncll , Kennedy , Dr.
Peabody , Hathaway , Parmaleo , General
Smith , Brucker , Mils and Hooy. The
contrast between these and tlio other
sportsmen , young , handsome and ener
getic , was most striking , except possibly
in the case of Parnial.o , who , though
Scarcely beyond his majority , is yet old
iq the ranks of the hunters.
A more beautiful spread had never been
laid in Omaha. The inner edge of the
table was garnished with water-cross
worked into graceful curves and
designs , and relieved at inter
vals with fresh and fragrant cut roses ,
of various nnd beautiful types. At each
angle htood a capacious bowl , filled with
n nectar not too line for the lion homines
who delighted in the inspiration which
they found in its depths. On its surface
floated a snowy substance in n
wavy , tremulous manner. Between
repositories reposed clusters of fruit ,
pyramids of pastry with an indefi
nite variety of delicacies which not alone
delighted the taste but was pleasing to

"Good ! Yet remember

Audubon , In his time , and especially in
Ids works on bird life , which live after ,
lid much to cultivate a taste for winged
creatures , both in the Held and upon the
Udilo , but it was hearty good cheer , in
vigorating appreciation , and withal a re *
lined epicurean sense , which caused the
features mentioned 10 bo appreciated , as
Iho di'lljrhl ful spread desurvtul. Course
followed couro with mechanical regu.
larity , and the pleasant smile , the hearty
yet subdued laughter , and grateful mur
mur of conversation , which just
filled the room , told of the
appeal to the senses which had been
made in many ways. The wines ,
too , wore excellent , and found hearty ap
preciation with ovnry gentleman who
tell disposed to indulge in them.
The credit of the banquet , and a grout
credit it is , belongs primarily , of course ,
* o the Millard , lint to Mr , C. K. Smith ,
whoso ircniil presence watched over and
made more liomolikp the pleasant ofTair ,
the pronounced success of the spread ,
thn garnishment it displayed , the
manner in which it was
served by n corps 9f twenty
waiters , belongs. Nothinir was
Ifft undone ! . Kvrrythtng conducing to
the comfort of the guests had been anti
cipated , and ns a consequence their
wants were supplied before , indeed , they
could give expression to them.
When the cigars were readied , General
Smith , after an interesting preface of a
few words , facetiously called upon Presi
dent Bed ford to explain how it was that
his score happened to bear a strong like
ness to the cipher. Tins Mr. Bedford
said could bo easily explained by the
statement that ho had been caught in HIP
swamps at Florence.
Then followed a series of lon.sU re
sponded to by General Smith , B. K. B.
Kennedy nnd others The latter re
ferred to the existence of Iho old Omaha
Sportsmen's club , of whinh , organized as
it had been about twenty- five years before ,
lie saw hut one face ho remembered. In
those days , too , they used to haye
club hunts with , however , but five
members on a side. But thu club
grew until it liad forty members. In
the < > days also the man who acted ns
leader , achieved the title by a count of
sixty-one points , which was in singular
contrast with that of the two hundred and
more points which had , this year , earned
that distinction for General Smith.
Around him he saw what was apparent
in the streets of Omaha , strange faces on
nil sides. There was a Unto when ho
used to know everybody. Now ho could
scarcely enumerate a dozen of those pres
ent who were not strangers to him. In
thosodays when they met for their annual
dill ) supper at Harry Wilson's saloon , ho
know all the members. These facts made
him fuel that ho was growing old. When
twenty-live years ago ho had learned to
shoot , lie never thought ho would shoot
as long as lie had , but he would con
tinue to shoot as long as it was permitted
hi'ii so to do. He perhaps was not so
sure of foot nor accurate in sight as
some of IIIH eagle-eyed young companions
but was still devoted to the sport and was
pleased to see that there were so many
other young folks who loved it equally
Other toasts were responded to bv Dr.
Worley , J. J. Hardtn , Dr. Hyde , Tank
Hathaway , C. E. Snyder , of thn Republi
can , tlio PIER representative , J. It. Clark-
son , and Dr. Peabody. It is rocrcttcd
that oven a summary of these remarks ,
which wore quite happy , is forbidden for
want of space.
President jJochel closed the banquet by
slating that if tlui guests had enjoyed the
evening as well as the club had enjoyed
their presence the ambition of the latter
would be attained.
The gathering then retired.

Jacob Sehall , a butcher , who has lived
on North Nineteenth street , is mysteri

that lie was going to South Omaha to see

pocket when he left home , His wife is
in great distress over his mysterious dis
appearance and fears that ho has been

Superintendent Hughes , of tlio Iowa
division of the Chicago Northwestern ,
from BoOne , la. , and J. M. Alworth ,
freight agent of the same road at Coun
cil Bluffs , were at the stock yards yester
day. The Northwestern and Burlington
people arc very much aroused over the
action of the Rock Island in hauling their
stock at the proportionate rate of the
through charges. There scorns to bo a
general impression that there will not bo
a war on rates between the roads , based
on ( he supposition that the commissioner
would not countcnanco the action of the
Rock Island , nnd that tlio road would
not find It to its advantage to continue
in an aggressive attitude against the
other roads. Just at this time , too , a
rate war would bo a very unfortunate
agair for Omaha. The new packing
houses that will bo ready for business hero
within a low weeks will create a demand
for all of the live slock that can be brought
to Omaha. If the war is commenced the
North western will carry into execution
their threat that they will restore local
rates on stock shinned from Nebraska
points to Omaha. This would oH'ectually
shut oft' all live stock from entering the
city over the Chicago & Northwestern ,
and will also lose to the city the stock
that will naturally go over the other
roads to Chicago on account of the cut

The Republican County Committee
ItcconsIdcrM ItH Action.
The opposition that has manifested
itself to the action of the republican
county central committee in dropping
the name of F. B. Ilibbard , ono of the
candidates for tlio legislature from the
ticket , resulted in another meeting of the
committee yesterday. Chairman W. F.
Bechol presided and II. W. Dunn acted as
secretary. The minutes of the last meet
ing were read and presented to "the com
mittee for their approval. Dennis Lane
moved that the action of the committee
in reference to Mr. Hibbard's candidacy
The motion drew out a lively discus
sion. Mr. llosowatcr made a statement
concerning the action of the convention.
He held that a creature could bo greater
than its creator , and that the central
committee , which was created by tlio
county convention , had no power
to undo the work ot the con
vention. Ho claimed that any
ticket which tlio central committee would
place in tlio field would be illegal and
bogus if it differed in any manner from
the ticket chosen by the county conven-
After n. lengthy and heated discussion
the motion to reconsider the vote drop
ping Mr. Hibbard's name from the ticket
Mr. Ilibbard was then called out and
briefly addressed the committee. Ho
stated that ho had been placed in a deli
cate position by the hasty and ill-advised
action of the committee. He said that
lie hau been a republican nil his life. Ho
denied emphatically that he was a tem
perance advocate. Ho had watched the
growth of the question from its first start
in Massachusetts , and was convinced that
Nebraska's liqnor law is the best that ex
ists. In case of his election he pledged
himself to bo honest and to act consci
entiously and work for the bcstintcrcstof
The committee , after hearing Mr. Hib-
bard , adjourned.
HIKED A MAN TO SHOUT.
How JiulKO Coolcy Gave- Himself
A good joke is being told at the expense
of "Jedgo * Cooley , the well known law
yer and politician of this city. The
Judge was quite recently in attendance
upon n political mass meeting which was
being hold in a place not a thousand
miles from Omaha. Ho was cocked and
primed for ono of his eloquent speeches
advocating the cause of Church Howe.
The nicotine : progressed satisfactorily ,
and a number "of good speeches were
made. Only ono circumstance marred
the serenity of the occasion. Some
lusty lunged youth in the rear of
the audience was continually bawl
ing out "Judge Cooleyl" "Let's
hear from Judge Cooley ! " "A
speech from Judge Cooley ! " oto.
He kept this up until finally tlio judge
was seen to rise from his scat. He sham
bled slowly up to the platform , his head
bowed ill deep thought , ono hand thrust
under his Prince Albert , the other co
quetting beneath his left coattail. He
solemnly mounted the platform , and pro
ceeded to electrify his hearers with a
scries of Wcbsterian periods. Still the
follow in the roar of thn room continued
to call loudly for "Judgo Cooloy. "
Finally the chairman arose and address
ing himself to the disturber said : "I hope
that you'll keep still for a few moments.
Don't you know that this is Mr. Cooley
who is now speaking ? "
"Naw , " said tlio follow in a datzod
sort ol a way , "that can't bo Judge
Cooley , why , blast it , that's the d
fool that hired mo to holler ! "
Tlio first I'roinoiintlo Concert.
The musical event of next week will
bo the appearances at the first promenade
concert at the Exposition building of
Signora Linda Brambillii and her excel
lent company. Mr. Franko , who is man
aging this series of concerts , has secured
this company at an enormous expense
for the initial number of the concertsand ,
ho should bo encouraged in a liberal man
ner by the music-loving people of
Omaha. The success of these concerts
will in n crrcat measure decide whether
Mr. Franko will continue his residence
and work in Omaha. Signora Brambilla
will bo supported by the following dis
tinguished artists : Signora Linda Bram
billa , prima donna soprano. Miss Eva
May WycoiT , contralto , Mr. Joseph
Hr. oosoph Hirsehbaoh , tenor. Mr , Wil
liam Moebius , violinist , Miss Murquorito
Louise Harris , pianist.
Mr. Franko has made arrangements
for the introduction of another new mus
ical departure that will doubtless prove a
pleasing and a taking one. Commencing
next Sunday ho will give regular after
noon sacred concerts at Boyd's ' opera

Dr. Ilattoii'B Position.
ATLANTIC , la. , Oct. 23. J'o the Editor :
DKAU Sm 1 was pained to read in your
issue of to-day a telegram from this place
yesterday , stating that Dr. liatton had
withdrawn from the greenback candi
dacy , but still remained on the track as
a K. of L. candidate. I wish to state
through your columns that the above is
false , and that the telegram was sent by
those opposed to him , and was not in any
manner authorized cither by him or by
any 1C. of L. Dr. Hatton was interviewed
yesterday by a committee of the K. of L.
( of which committee I , myself , was one ) ,
and the doctor insured us in unmistaka
ble terms that ho had withdrawn from
the race. I send you herewith a copy of
the interview , at length. You can append
it hereto if you desiro. A called meeting
was held by thn two assemblies of the
K. of L. of lied Oak last night , and the
evidence of his withdrawal in substan
tial and unmistakable form for the first
time laid before them. The assemblies
in joint convention assembled with but
ono dissenting vote , and that was a
democratic editor and declared in favor of
renommating him on n straight K. of L.
candidacy , relying on his past life of un
swerving devotion to the principles as
held by thn K. of L. , to cause him to
accept the election on the above issuo.
All the local assemblies within roach of
Ked Oak and Atlantic have been seen ,
and a meeting of the congressional com
mittee has been called to meet at Atlantic
on Tuesday next , when , it is Known , ho
will bo unanimously nominated ns a
candidate for the K. of L. And the light
will be by them conducted on a'non par-
man basis , their candidate being utterly
free from party atlilialions of any kind.
This is the basis upon which wo found
our race , discountenancing all the false
inaHgiiuionts that have been circulated
about the man while ho was so near
death's door upon a siok bed and unable
to refute them. Wo respectfully ask
that you give the above place in your
columns , in the interest of truth.

Indianapolis Journal : "In 18M , " said
Father Uessonles1 ! wont to Franco on

to make the bird palatable. Down south

Catholio church , ami on his dying bed I
made thu request that if any bishop or
priest came into that part of the country
ho should bless the grave. Many years

Queen Nathnlio is the daughter of a
colonel in thn Kussian army , Ki'chko , a
boyard ot Hrssnrnbia , nnd of Princess
Pulohurio Sbroudga , a Roumanian. She

it is dinicult to describe the rare and
exceeding beauty of the < ] iicon. Her
classical features have at the samn time
a commanding royal majesty nnd the in
uocent charm of a playful girl. Her
fair broad forehead is crownetl by n pro
fusion of jet black hair ; her almond-
shaped brown eyes have n look at once
inexpressibly tender and sparkling with
intelligence ; her rippling smile and sit
vco laugher irradiate a clear and pale
complexion , recalling her own K'issian '
snows , warmed into a richer coloring by
the eastern suns. She is tall and sur
passingly graceful , and her manners
have a subtle charm , partly royal and
Uoforo the fatal Servian-Hulgarian war
broke out , while she was enjoying her
popularity and the glory of1 her late
accession to the royal crown. Queen
Nathalie had made her remote little
court the resort of western elegance , wit
and rellnomont , and enlivened it with
receptions over which she presided with
all her juvenile gayety and tact. At the
Konak ( then the palace ) she organized
little balls at which , with her ladies in
waiting , maids of honor , and ollicurs of
her guard , she danced the Kussian ma
zurka with true national spirit. Attunes
she would appear in the picturesque cos
tume of the Servian peasants , with ( Ho
red head gear studded with .sequins , the
gold-broidercd vest , the full silken chem
isette , the skirt with its dazzling and
multicolored ornamentation. Thus at
tired she went tlironirh the slow , r'lvth- '
mical steps of the kolo , an old dance
of the country , the monotonous echoes of
which are often heard on the shores of
the far Danube.
Without pedantry or any of the pre
tentious of a blue stocking , the queen is
well road and possesses a solid and
varied instruction. She is not a poet nor
an author , like the queen of Houmania ,
but she speaks French quite as fluently
and takes n particular pleasure in read
ing tlio poi'try of France as well as all
the publications treating on history ,
which is her favorite study. On her
book shelves , besides the classics and
sorions volumes , can be seen the works
of Taine , Coppia , with his musical
vorac ; Sully Prudhommie , rtio satirist ;
L'Amand and Alphonso Daudt-t. The
latter is one of the very few novelists of
the modern school who have found favor
with queens , although queens have met
with small indulgence at his hands.
Diplomats have always been received
with murKcd distinction at tiie court of
Belgrade , and made much more of than
in othergrander European capitals ; and
as the social world of the city is ex
tremely restricted , and oilers few attrac
tions to tlio foreigner , lie is indebted to
the queen for almost the only receptions
where he can forgot that he has virtually
reached the confines of worldly civiliza
tion. On the arrival and departure of
every foreign representative a gala ban
quet is given at Iho palace ; during des
sert the orchestra plays tlio national
anthem ot the guest of the hour , and
witii hospitable courtesy the king
drinks his health , adding a few well-
chosen words of welcome or farewell.
During the last war , and after the
cruel humiliations and deceptions it
brought her people , Queen Nathalie was
unrennttent in her endeavors to assist
the stricken , tend the wounded , en
courage the sufTering , and won for her
self the title of "Madonna of Kossovo. "
A Servian legend says that the Blessed
Virgin visited tlio fallen soldiers on the
battlefield of Kossovoj where , in a mur
derous conflict in 138 ! ) , Sultan Amurath I.
found his death. But the infidel died
victorious , and from that period dates
the serfdom of tlio Servians. The simple
nation , oppressed and tyranized over ,
never forgot the defeat and subsequent
catastrophe which madn it , n Christian
peonlo , the slave of the Mussulman , and
nearly 500 years ago , stayed for centuries
tlio progress of its civilization. In its
picturesguo folk lore , many lays and
poems record the event ami the super
natural visitation of Our Lady :
Servia saw herself once more fran-
chiscd in 1882 , and in the first flush of her
freedom received a cruel stroke from the
Bulgarian foe , who attempted to strike
at the roots of her newly acquired inde
pendence. Queen Nathalie , during those
troubled times , when the fate of her
country hung in the halancn , proved her
self a heroine. Even to this day , when a
spoming trnnquility is restored , she trains
herself to the part she Would play should
a fresh storm sweep across the land.
Barely a day parses that she does not
perform some act of mercy , visiting the
hospitals , giving personal supervision to
some charitable institution , or seeking
the alllieted in their own miserable
haunts. When she enters the wards or
nears n patient's pallet he lifts her hands
and makes the sign of the cioss as before
some sainted vision. When she pusses
on foot through the streets of IlisliErado ,
escorted only by a single lady in waiting ,
small children riisn to kiss tlio hem of her
garment , and the mothers kneel craving a
pormibslon , which is never refused , to
kiss the little hand always opened togive.
His only in very young nations that
this rcvoronco and love for the sovereign
finds a spontaneous expression. The vic
torious monarohs of morn civilized and
matured lands receive less hoinago than
beautiful , vanquished Nathalie , ot Survia.
It was she who prevailed on King Milan
not to abdicate in the lirst moment of
despair at his reverses , and to keep for
his son thn throne to which the vote of
hisneoplu had raised him.
This only heir. Prince Alexander , was
born in 1870. His mother superintended
his education , and oven now she spends
