banquet hall this afternoon he entertained
at luncheon these vagabonds. A largo crowd
of pit-lies , as well as many customary Kuro-

enter tlio municipal mansion. The Urst to
arrive was Mr * . Keeley , who , forty-live years

A Junir.Rr. omcnx ROOM.
Inside the mansion house was literally a

to Mrs. Keeley , Mrs. Wood honored the buf
falo hero , the youthful Toolo escorted tbo
still youthful Mrs. Sterling , and all the man
agers and manageresses paired as smilingly
as If pooling their box receluts. All vocif
erously drank the queen's health and silently
hoped she would now often box herself.
TIII : r.or.n JIAYOII'S SPKHCII.
The lord mayor , who Is a Cambrldgoman of
roputo.spoke a pleasant prologue of welcome :
"Tho luncheon Is an acknowledgement of
the great debt of gratitude my constituents
ewe thn ladles and gentlemen who had so
long Interested , laughed aud amused them.
It t < as over forty years alnco my thcatre-
Kolnir recollections began. I do not ,
however , propose going into his
tory. I merely desire to express
my ( treat gratification at the opportunity in
my official capacity to testify on behalf of
the ccncr.il public the regard felt for those
who had done so much to evoke their best
feeling. The weather , however , did not
justify , and it would be baibarous to keep
you unnecessarily long In a hot room. Wo
shall speedily adjourn to the saloon , where 1
hope you will lind U cooler. But , In the
meantime , I glvo with the utmost sincerity
the toast , 'Tho Drama , ' aud Mr. Irving will
invixo o Tint DRAMA.
That gentleman began by remarking : "I
know the resuonslolllty of standing before
my follow actors and actresses. I know
what It Is by rehearsals nnd other ex
periences | laugh tori , and I have to bo ex
tremely careful in any remarks 1 may make. "
After some humorous allusions to ancclent
frictions between corporations and actors ,
Uo remarked that an actor always spoke
nicely of it and of lord mayors , lie then
gave felicitous quotations from Shakes
peare , and added : "Many predecessors In
your high oftlce , my lord mayor , have been
immortalized by Shakespeare , notably the
lord mayor in the play of Ulchard III.
I may tell you that the lord mayor
In Klcnard HI waa the first part
in which mv frlond Mr. Toolo distinguished
himself , aud it was indeed ono of his most
distinguished Impersonations. If he could
ever be Induced on any occasion to play the
part again for the benefit of any whom may
be worthy such an honor , I shall be clad to
support him on the occasion In the part of
the J > ko of Gloucester. " At this point of
laughter Mr. Toole was heard to observe In a
semi sotto voce , " 'Tls a bargain. " After
some graceful reference to many present ,
Irving observed : "The actors of this conn-
try , my lord , In some respects , are the best In
the world. [ Great applause. ] Whether
they are the best actors In all respects it
wouldn't be becoming in mo to
say. If I thought HO , I should
be very reticent , because I know what the
result would bo when engagement * como to
renewed. But If. my lord , they are not the
host actors In the world , they are certainly
the most appreciated actors In the world , and
the hospitable , welcome which you have given
to-day Is very gratifying. Wo are also very
delighted , to meet the sheriffs of London.
There may have been a tlmo , pnrhaps , when
the presence ofthe [ sheriffs [ Longcontlnuod

days are past , and we will think only of the
bright future. My lord , on behalf of my
fellows , I tnanK yon , and 1 think I may say
for them that you will have their good re
port while you live and as good aa epitaph
when you die. "
Mr. Toolo continued in ono of those happy
Impromptus which the "Odoro Hook" used to
spend rnor'nlngs over In making Improvls-
lens , and next coffee and pleasant tags fol
lowed In the well ventilated reception saloon
until thoughts of call boys again Introduced
the company to the cheers and recognition of
the "million" outside.

What the Alayor Says About the
"Your honor , " said a reporter of the
BKE , addressing Mayor Broatch , "thoro
is a great deal of talk on the streets about
your order probibiting music aud danc
ing in the boor gardens on Sunday.
Won't you lot the people 'know through
the BEE precisely what , was meant ? "
"With pleasuro. This is an opportu
nity I have desirod. In the first place
there was no regular manifesto issued ,
but instead , in consequence of innumera
ble complaints that have reached mo
from private citizens aa well aa from
members of tbo city council
from different wards , with reference to
the annoyance they have been subjected
to on account of boisterous and disor
derly conduct that ban marked the Sun
day gatherings nt the different beer gardens -
dons , especially these in the south end.
where they have music , dancing and
beer , I considered it my duty to take
some steps toward their .abatement , if
not suppression. Accordingly I simply
instructed the chief of police to Investi
gate the matter and order the closing of
all such descrlood resorts on the Sab
bath. The gardens where they have
dancing seem to bo the objectionable
places , and if there is good foundation
tor tbe verbal order given tbe cbiof ,
it shall stand. I am de
termined that the decency and dig
nity of the city of Omaha shall be main
tained. I am beset on all sides about this
Sunday question. It is a vexed one , and
as you know , public opinion is omnipo
tent when itis aroused. In too many
cities public opinion is asleep. Toughs
do as they please when honest men DC-
come indifferent. It is for us to decide
whether disorder shall take us by the
throat , or whether wo shall throttle it.
Wo must not forget that the welfare of
this city is determined by the people's
son so of what is lawful , innocent and
correct' . If the people demand order they
will have it. Mind , now , I am in sympa
thy with tlio laboring classes , and believe
that they should bo provided with
places of recreation and amusement
whenever they may have the time nnd
opportunity to indulge in .it , bo that
whensoever it may. But 1 do not take
any stock in disreputable dives , or disor
derly beer gardens or dance halls , no
difference who runs them or where they
are located. We have plenty of resorts
whore there is music and refreshments in
Omaha whence comes no complaint , and
they should , in my opinion , not be mo
lested. In conclusion you may say in the
BEK'that there has boon no regularly is
sued order closing the clty Sunday
pleasure resorts. Tbo animus of my in
structions was to reach the disorderly
places. Morning. "

idea touching this interesting question ,

dens and dance hulls vero visited.

lice. Scnf really has a very pleasant place ,
with umbrageous trees , easy chairs , ta
bles and numberless other appliances of
comfort and case , besides on Sunday
there is some startling music ( hut gives
the nerves very active exercise , while a
delightful ctlluvia that tells wondrous
tales of beer , renders the place nil that'
could be expected. Occasionally a crowd
of South Omaha toughs runs in on Paul

BAYARD TAYLOR'S GRAVE.
The Modest Monument In a Cheater
West Chester Record : A few days ago
chancing byLongwood during tlio course
of a drive through Kast Marlborough and
Konnett townships , I tied my horse under
ono of the fresh green maples on the
grounds surrounding the old meeting
house , and sauntering across the road ,
through tbo little iron gateway loading
into its unpretentious burying ground ,
with iu ono hundred or so of humble
mounds and tombstones , I came , cro long ,
to the resting place of ono whoso name
and farao has been spoken throughout the
world , and who , though dead in tbo flesh ,
is destined to live within the realms of
literature forever. It was within a small
enclosure , probably not over ten feet
square , surrounded bv an iron railing of
plain design , but effectual in barring
strangers from intrusion within its sa
cred portals. In one corner of it stood
a tall ovcrgrccn tree with outspreading .
brandies that sheltered a goodly portion
of the lot , and under it , standing on a
granite base , probably a foot in thickness
and three feet square , on a small mound
of earth , rose a cylindrical shaped
stone less than five feet high and two and
a half feet in diameter , flat on top , and of
a light brown or buff color. Near it on
every side were growing shrubbery and
evergreens of humble but neglected
growth , and struggling through tbo
sward bore and there near the base of the
stone wore lilies of the valley , now fresh
inv'gorous bloom , with their tiny white
blossoms bowing In graceful clusters
toward the earth covering thu ashes
of ono who in life so oft had clung to
them. In a line extending mure than
half around the neatly moulded
cylinder of otono , I read thu
words : "Ilo being dead yet spoaketh , "
and under it , about tlio centre of the
cyclindcr , on the side facing the grassy
pathway , surrounded by a wreath of
laurel wrought by sculptor's art within
the Immortal stone , was a medallion of
bronze , with a raised profile. It waa Unit
of a kindly face , full of character , full
of cnorgv and perseverance , but with
lines of disappointment here and there ,
adding to its expression. It was not the
profile of such a man as ooe la accus
tomed to seeing every day. Under it in
letters , too , of bronze was the never dying
