A Few Thoughts Upon the Delights of
Now Mualcnl Pro ! lRy Cain-
Suggestions Hogm-dliiR
tlio Cnro ol' the Voice AVhnt Is
Doing In tlio Drnnintlo AVorld.
A cheerful Institution of tbcso United
States and ono that tulds to the slender stock
of holidays of the American people occurs
next Thursday , when all sects nnd classes
uro supposed to give thanks for the mercies
nnd bcncllts ; of the nearly past year , and to
pray for n continuation of kind treatment In
the future.
Apple ton's compilers ns well as other
authors of definitions , surround the origin of
the day with several beginnings and trace it
definitely to none.
Other countries have their "harvest homo"
festivals nnd celebration of the Ingatb'ering
seasons , but no other country of tUa glebe
is put on record as possessing n civil holi
day of this description , separate and distinct
from any day of thanks or commemoration of
any special deliverance.
Tlio Hebrew feast of Tabernacles 'came
nearer to Thanksgiving day tlinn any other
observance and tlio ancient data of the former
suggests It as being the foundation of the
The early history of the day in America is
quite well l nownI , arasuroto the majority of
TUB BF.E readers , but that no ono may bo
Ignorant of its adoption in this country , I
hope I may bo pardoned u snort digression
from the usual topics \vhlch are discussed
under this heading.
Custom has flited the last Thursday la No
vember as the day on which the celebration
shall bo held , but in the early days the gov
ernors of the different states issued their
pronunclamcntos as thov pleased.
The determination of a general day came
about through the location of u flourishing
village half in Massachusetts nnd half In
tthode Island. The respective governors of
the two states used to choose different days
much to the disconcertion of the domestic
arrangements of the residents of the town in
question. On two days of the year one half
the population would don Its good clothes.
live high , shut up Its stores , go to church and
put on style generally , while the other half
sloshed around and attended to business Just
the same as if nothing had happened. -
Of course the rivalry got to bo expensive
nnd finally the governor of Massachusetts
said to the governor of Ilhodo Island some
thing that has since been attributed to the
governors of the Carollnas. Anyhow a
treaty of peace ensued and unity ot thanks
and turkey for ever after was the result in
the divided village.
The celebration has kept pace with time
until today it rauka with the lirst of Ameri
can holidays.
To the dramatic profession it comes with
positive delight. It means a Jolly dinner for
every Thespian in the hind who has the
wherewithal to purchase It , and these who
haven't will find in a convenient saloon ,
where free lunch is served , a warm cut from
the breast of the fowl which on this day is
sacrificed upon the altar of a nation's thank
To the managers of theaters the country
over it means big houses , big profits and In
consequence their hearts nro llllcd with
thankfulness that on two or three days of the
year they hnvo nn opportunity tosuspcniT
the free list and fill the scats , which would
otherwise be occupied by dead heads , with
patrons , whose dollars help to maico the man
agerial heart glad on Thanksgiving' day.
To the men and women who are far re
moved from the Ingle sides of their boyhood
and girlhood , Thanksgiving day is freighted
with tender memories. Boys and girts no
longer they arc out In the world battling for
place nnd position , fortune and fame , but
reminiscences of other Thanksgiving days
troop in upon thorn , Jiot unllko wedding
guests to a feast.
The sentiment which I have tried to ex

lines which I nave chosen to call
A homestead old I see tonight.
Its gables pinnacled with snow ;
Its rustle windows warm with light ,
Its hearth with dancing flames UKlow.
From olty and from town has come
A madcap , moriy , noisy ciow
Who take possession , ful | and free ,
And frolic as they used to do.
And now old songs are sung again ,
And ancient Incidents recited ;
The boys recall the garret myths
' The glils , the uluces love WHS plighted.
And In the midst of all this joy ,
Old " /.eke , " who still persists In living ,
Brings ill ) the elder from below
And uppieskept for this Tlmnkkglvlng.
The crackling logs , upon the hearth
Their mimic salvos ( Ire at will ,
As If rejoicing In the fate
That keens. sweet pcaco around It still ;
And though tonight I'm faraway.
Still memory leads mo to the living ,
And well I know I'm not forgot
Amid their joys this glad Thanksgiving ,
I was talking yesterday with Henry E.
Dlxoy nnd the talk naturally drifted to the
evolution of the burlesque. It may bo inter
esting to know what Mr , Dixoy's' Ideas arc
regarding it :
"Burlesque occupies a rather unique posi
tion among the other branches of the dnv
matlo art , " said ho. "It lucks tuo heaviness
of the legitimate , the improbable situations ol
the melodrama and .tho absurdities of the
broad furco. Yet at the same time burlesque
takes all those three in handvand cloverlj
lampoons and caricatures them. There Is a
freedom and dash in burlesque that Is hardly
permissible In other branches of the art.
Stapo ideas nro sometimes brushed ruthlesslj
aside end the author or actor uses his OUT
ideas to carry out effect. There is no pent-ur
Utlca lu burlesque. In fact the very frothi
ness nnd crlspness of burlesque Is whai
makes It so attractive to music lovers. Con
vcntlonalisms are pierced as whh a line stiletto
otto ; stage weaknesses ore handled withoui
cloves and the owner of a real live fad canse (
it exposed to a gaping world in all Its hide
ousness. "
"Has the burlesque made any progress
Mr. Dlxeyi"
"In my opinion it has made more raplc
strtaes toward perfection than any depart
ment of the dramatic art. The student of thi
stage can recollect 'Pocahontas' nnd 'Chris
topher Columbus.1 It is not necessary to g <
any further back than the date which In
eludes these old favorites. They are th <
typical and for a time wore the Ideal bur
losqucs of their day. An analysis of the !
'construction shows that the groundwork o
tno libretto presented but ono idea through
out , or. It might bo said with u llttlo mori
truthfulness , two Ideas throughout. Oin
was , In the llrst place , a bold attempt a
rhyming. 'Daughter' was made to form ni
apparently euphonious coalition will
'oughter , ' a corruption of 'ought to,1 nnd so I
went on. English was nssassinotci
In cold blood , grammatical precedent
were annihilated ana nodical license wa
a very long suit for the librettist So muel
for the llrst point. In the second place hit
this rhymthmic delirium were Injected a nure
her of very bad puns. Jn the construction o
'Adonis' and my other burlesques I hav
made studious efforts to avoid these hack
noycd methods and I have introduced in thol
stead such features as will pleas > o the eye an
ear ana the better sense of humor. Burlesque
are better staged und the mechanical effect
uro more pleasing. In all these direction
have improvements boon made and th
burlesque of today is fur in advance of thus
seen only ten years ago , " Tun EOUNOEK.

"A Brim Monkey" will bo at Boyd's opera
house as the holiday attraction , commencing
Thursday , Thanksgiving matinee , nnd con
tinuing for three nights wltn Saturday mail-
nco. Mr. Hoyt has In this ploco woven his
absurdities Into n connected story. Thcro ib
Just ns much bright mid attractive music ,
graceful dancing by pretty girls , nnd pletur-
C3 < | uo specialties distributed through tlio
c\cnlng as there was in the case ol Mr.
Hoyt's earlier comedies , but in "A Dross
Monkey" the thread ot the story is never
lost , nnd effective and uproariously fimny
climaxes , wowing naturally cut of the situa
tion , brings the acts to a finish.
The story has a number of quaint develop-
meifts. Ono of the quaintest deals with n

by npiicarlng In public places In the company
of the toughest ho can Ilnd , The auction

picturesque features. The auction room Is
presided over by Jonah , ono of the unfor
tunates of life who is in the habit of ascrib
ing all of his many misfortunes to such out
ward nnd visible signs as como under his
notice. The famous "Wild Man from Borneo1

The most notable among the new features is
Qeorgo P. Marlon's Italian "Chestnut"
speech. It Is said to bo excellent in character dialect , novel and original , and so entirely
different from the customary Irish and Ger

Jlrs. Cotton's Pupils Score a Well DC-
served Sucuess.
The first of n series of inuslca'.os which
Mrs. Ji W. Cotton and her pupils , purpose
giving during the winter was held Thursday
evening In the Linlnger art gallery on Daven
port street , followed by a reception of nn
hour , during which the guests present took
occasion to warmly concratulato the par
ticipants uoon the success they achieved.
En passant ono cannot help but allude to
the Ronoroslty of Mr. Ueorgo W. Llnlngcr In
allowing the recital to bo held in his art gal
lery. If there were only a few moro such
public spirited men In Omaha the cause of
art. of literature , of music would bo greatly
furthered Instead of remaining in its uudc-
velopca state , ns now.
The recital was even moro of n success
than the most enthusiastic of Mrs. Cotton's
admirers had hoped for. Thcro was a certain
emprosscmcnt aboiit the performance which
could not help but please the audience ,
which filled the salon almost to suffocation.
It was really a crush , thor friends of the vari
ous participants being out In force to assist
at the debut of the vocalists.
Mrs. George Gould inaugurated the evenIng -
Ing by singing ToursL-iUJecause of Thee"
very sweetly and prettily , and was followed
by Miss Mvrtlo Coon who rendered Bach's
"Cradle Song" very effectively. Miss
Mary Oliver quite . surprised her
friends by her beautiful rendi
tion of Cowon's , , . "Lovo is a
Dream. " It was so/full / of sentiment and
phased so perfectly that u storm of applause
followed Its completion1.
Mr. Paul Beresford , the only gentleman
figuring on the programme , sang "Calvary"
in a very modest maunpr. His voice , while
not particularly large , is handled with skill ,
and under Mrs. Cotton's direction ought to
grow in beauty as it rfvov s in volume.
Mrs. C. S.V hltney , Is the possessor of n very
sweet soprano Voice which was shown to
good advantage In Ardlll's "Magnetic Waltz. "
Miss Kate Ball selected for her debut ns n
soloist Chadwlck's pretty ballad "So Far
Away , " which displayed her light nlto vole
very acceptably Indeed ,
Two ducts by Caracctola , "A Streamlet
Full of FlowerH , " and "Nearest and Dearest"
by Miss Boulter and Mrs. Mocller were
beautifully sang. Both voices were in perfect
harmony , the soprano of Miss Boulter fur
nishing the high lights for Mrs. Moellcr's
rich and rare contralto. And the number
was ono of the gems of the evening , introduc
ing two well and favorably known vocalists to
the audience.
Miss Clara Clarkson charmed the guests by
her daiuty rendering of "La Primovera , " by
Torry. While her voice is not big by any
means It is beautifully modulated m the upper
register especially , Just suited for coloratura
Miss Anna Bishop has both a rich nnd a
irihguotio alto , which shows evidence of very
careful tralniiig. It is full of sentiment and
gives promise of something out of the or
dinary if care Is taken in its development.
Miss Bishop sanp "Tho Journey is Long , "
ono of Coombs' compositions , and won many
worm words of pralso for the manner of Its
In a year MIsc Georgia Boulter has
wonderfully improved , so much so
that it was the wonder of
her fronds , who have not heard
her Sunday after Sunday at tno St. Mary's '
Avenue Congregational church whcro she
holds the position of first soprano. Her
technique has greatly increased under Mrs.
Cotton's direction , and her phrasing , which
was so much of a former drawback to her
work , has wonderfully Improved. She has a
beautiful voice excelling in the upper
register. ' Her middle voice still
needs judicious care which may have been
some what handicapped by her solo selection ,
"Do placer ml balza 11 gor,1' ' f rom "William
Tell. " Written upon an exalted plane ,
the favorite lyrio number of Mmo.
Pattl , Gcrstcr and Nilsson , it was
nevertheless very effectively suncr ,
barring a slight tendency to accentuate notes
which the composer never intended should
bo so marked.
The programme was completed by an
octette , "Approach of Spring , " by Gnde ,
which was charmingly done , the di
vision of the voices being as fol
lows : First sopranos , Mrs. Whitney , Miss
MnrvOlverj second sopranos , Mrs. George
Gould , Miss Clara Clarkson ; tint altos , Miss
Kuto Ball , Miss Lou 1'ortcrfleld ; second

Ojylng to the great demand for space In tlio
columns ot TUB SUNDAY Br.e some of the
speeches nt ttio Hosowater-Webster banquet
nt the Omaha club Saturday evening , the
Ifith lust , were unavoidably crowded out.
They are hero accordingly reproduced.
Dr. George L. Miller in responding to the
toast , "Tho Campaign , " said :
"Mr. Toastmnstcr mid gentlemen of thtf
Omaha club-I hnvo boon sitting hero this
evening very much delighted with some
things that I have seen and heard , and very
much lu suspicion or some other things thnt
I have noticed ( laughter ] In the last half
hour , or hour , or two hours. I am suspicious
that John L. Webster , my eminent friend ,
has been secretly ti-yiiiir to steal ray speech
hero. I projioso to punish Mr. Webster- for
the offense by talking to you nn hour , but
ho Implored mo not to do It ,
nnd In consideration of your feelings
I will not Inlllct tlio punishment this even
ing , but will reserve it for the futuro.
I liavo listened with prcnt satisfaction to
the eloquent speeches of the gentlemen who
have preceded mo-eloquent gentlemen who
are entitled to the gratitude of tlio people of
this state. I want to speak of n , man who is
not hero tonight. Of n young man who has
passed to his rest ; the young mnn who was
the organizer of the Huslno Men's nnd
Bankers' association and to whoso innnngo
mcnt and counsel , the state of Nebraska owes
its deliverance from the great public calam
ity. [ A voice : "Moffntt. " Applause. ] Ho
was not well enough known to this communi
ty ; I tiiKo It for granted that ho was not
known to many outsldo the commercial uor-
tion of tlio city , but wherever ho was known
ho wus known as a manly , true
and loyal man , nnd I want to
say thnt this occasion should not pass
without a tribute to the memory of a man
who had ns accurate Judgment of our affairs ,
present and future , considering the tlmo of
ills residence in the city , ns any man I over
had the honor of mooting. That young man ,
modest nnd retiring , though aggressive ,
worked with tucso gentlemen , with Mr.
Rosowntor nt the head , In u way thnt showed
us that when we lost him , wo lost ns capable
nnd useful a man as' ever lived. [ Applause. ]
"Although my Identity with this commit
tee was a mere .iguratlvo one , or ono with
which I had no particular connection except
to know of Its organization , I say that the
combination of tills great editor , the elo
quence of Webster nnd that man of unex
celled organizing power , Mr. Uoggcn , who Is
unsurpassed as nil organizer by an von o I
over know , having access M I did to reports
ovcry hour , I say hero on my responsibility ,
hat in nil my observation In political work ,
have never seen men bettor organized for
lattlo than In the campaign Just passed. My
Icpartment has been ono of prominent scr-
. Ice to the Voice. [ Laughter ] , As the
approved correspondent of n man by the
name of Kodman , I will submit to this busi
ness association If I did not completely un-
old the wants and needs of the people in
his campaign. If that letter of mlno was
uot sufficiently plain 1 will surrender nil my
: lnlm of recognition at the hands of the
itcrury bureau. [ Laughter ] . I told them
vhat wo did not have nnd I toll thorn what
vo wanted. That little Incident in thib cam-
mlgn was very amusing to many nndsomc-
\hat to mo. I Immediately subscribed to
, ho "Voico and I am n regular patron of that
japer now. ULnughtcrj. It has given mo
ill the literary distinction I over had In my
ifo since I presided over the Omaha Hoi'ild.
"Gentlemen , I have listened tonight to the
eloquent and comprehensive address of Mr.
liosowntor , who has stated something of the
past nnd much of the future of this great
poungclty , now in its babyhood , compared to
what it will bo within the lives of the young
men hero tonight , The work in the f uturo
for this city will soon belong to the young
men who are kind enough to listen to mo.
The shadows of ago nro falling upon the
heads of the men who may be called the
fathers and founders of Omaha. Ins , ono of the
men \ylio came hero before the Indian occupa
tion had ceased , In the coming few years can
see Jho end of n life that has been active hero
for thirty-six years. I sny to the young men
hero tonight , you who arc hi the meridian of
manhood , that your imagination cannot paint
n future for this city that will not bo far out
stripped by the reality , for the next twenty-
five years.
"For thirty years I have made n daily study
of tbo resources of Omaha. I remember very
well when a man by the name of Durant , who
built the railroad hero , said that the railroad
could never bo operated for the reason that
there wns no fuel In the Rocky mountains
with which to run the locomotives. I know
It wns his plan never to build the railroad nn
Inch beyond the city of Cheyenne , because
ho said the mountains could not be passed , or
the fuel could not bo obtained.
"When I came to Chicago , men said , 'VVc
have all the growth wo will ever have hero
and you had better go west , ' and I cnmo west
to grow down with the country for the first
fifteen years , and I say to these young men ,
don't you discredit anything whnt such men
ns I nm say about the future of Omahn , for
upon that depends your future fortune. If 1
could have convinced the incn of Omaha
twenty years ago thnt this city was to have a
population of 150,000,1 could have made a
thousand inon rich.
"Thoso gentlemen have furnished mo the
text ; Kosowater has given you the statistics ,
and I am dealing with what I can foresee
of the future of this city , mid when you wish
for the dovclopment.of this community west
of you with all Its manifold resources. In ten
or twenty years It will out-run and discount
tbo Imagination two to ono. [ Applause. I
Then W. V. Morse , the eminent merchant of
your city , has a Jug of whisky corked up ,
which ho says ho is never going to uncork
until this city has a population of 400,000 ; I
want to say to him that ho will bo a compara
tively young man when the jug is uncorked.
Thanking you , gentleman , for your kind at
tention , I bid you good night. [ Great ap
plause and cheers. ]
Major J , W. Paddock responded to the
toast , "Tho Old Settlers. " Ho said : "Unlike
Mr. Yates , who staits with water , I will
take a generous sup of wine. When I was
first notined of this banquet I was told thai

Mr. Henry VTutes , responding to the toast
of "Our Bankers. "
after u humorous refer
ence to some other hankers present who
should hr\vu been called upon instead of him
self , and the possible connection that bunks
inU'hi bavo with the occasion , nt suggested
by Judge Clnrkson spoke nsfollows :
"I had the honor of presiding at the llrst
mooting called for the purpose of inaugurat
ing the nnti.prohlLltlon cnmp.ilgn , and upon
mo devolved the duty of appointing an execu
tive committee. Several weeks were tuknu
for the purpose , nnd I bcllovo I selected a
good committee. I am free to confess thnt ,
fora time , I felt , with other , somewhat dis-
satlslled when this committee was displaced
nt a subsequent gathering by another
chosen In Its place. In the light , however ,
of results , it must now bo admitted that the
right men were found for the place , who ,
with the blessing of the divine 1'rovidcnco.
hnvo brought about tills grand success , nnd
to Mr. Edward Kosowater personally , in my
opinion , the credit is larirolv duo for the de
feat of the prohibition amendment.
"T was opposed to prohibition not merely , as
assorted by so many , thnt It did not prohibit
but , firstly , because I believed It would bo
detrimental to the material Interests of this
city nnd stnto ; nnd , secondly , because I did
not bellovo in the principle itself. The law
should not undertake to Interfere to this ex
tent with Individual rights. Life Is made up
of small things. Men's tastes differ. Ono
finds his greatest enjoyment In a good cigar ,
another , perhaps , in the driving of a fast
team , or the eating of a turkey , and I am
not sure hut others find theirs In
prayers und psalm-slnglng. Notwithstand
ing this belief , during all my twenty-nine"
years of residence In this city for I bellovo
I nnte-dnto Mr. Hosewntor no one hero can
say I was over sosn Insldo u saloon. And ,
right hero , I believe it proper to refer to a
subject nnd problem which Is presented to
the people of this city. It should be dis
tinctly understood and our newspapers
should send It forth with no uncer
tain sound , that wo nro lu favor of temper
ance nnd the enforcement of the law. Puulic
opinion V1I1 do moro to lessen the , number of
saloons and the curse of saloons than any
law which can bo enacted. Great advance In
this dlioction has been nmdo in recent years ,
and , If our prohibition friends will onlv let
us alone or will Join bonds with us. much
greater results will follow In the futuro.
The men who voted for prohibition were ,
some of them cranks and others doubtless
tricksters and impostors ; but , the largo ma
jority were terribly in earnest and no ono
should bolloVo Hint the cause of prohibition
Is dead. To combat with It successfully , wo
should demonstrate , what I boltovo to bo a
fact , that n largo majority of our people ,
.vhllo voting against prohibition and for high
license , arc also opposed to the saloons and
Enloon influence.
Another problem In this connection Is nlso
brought vividly before us of the largest
financial importance nnd which mast soon
receive our gravest consideration. In vlow
of nil the contingencies presented , some
movement sould bo commenced or some plan
devised for the support of our public schools
other than that derived from saloon licenses.
"In closing , I desire again to nlludo to the
great service rendered to our state and city
by our guests of this evening. These entitle
them to all the thanks you have extended
nnd nil the honors you have conferred upon
them , and , In my opinion , deserve nt our
hands a much moro substantial recognition
than what is supplied by this banquet from
the Omaha club , "
W. E. Annln , being Introduced by the
chairman ns "anxious to respond to the toast
of 'The Pi-ess'said : "When the commit
tee of llvo , of which I happen to bo a mem
ber , was appointed to see now many of the
200 members of this club would bo willing to
stay away , wo mutually agreed that no posi
tion of honor or trust should bo accepted by
any member of that committee. Wo broke

but persistently insisted that ho should bo se

tendered the position to J. M. Woolworth.
Ho regretfully declined on account , of ab
sence from the city. So , too , aid Dr. Aliller ,
who had broken another engagement to bo

were compelled to come down to Offutt , and ,
of course , ho accepted with thanks. [ Pro

"As I passed by the table about two mln-
ufosago Mr. Offutt suld : 'Wo shall call on
vou to respond to the toaat of The
Press , ' and Mr. Kosowater added sotto
voce 'Tho Express. ' [ Laughter , ] There
Is feomothing lu that. Of course , for three
years past I have had no stilted connection
with any Oinahu paper nnd am on that ac
count n local ex-press man. Hut the call to
answer to the toast of my profession tiring *
mo to my feet nnd I do not feel embarrassed
as I guzo upon this wine emblazoned assem
blage , to endorse a calling thnt has nrhluvcd
HO much In victory and defeat , nnd through

"Thohjis no toast through whoso silvery

that the toast seems to bo proposed only when
either an editor Is a guoM , of the evening 01

seated at the tables. [ Laughter und ap

"Wo fear tlio press always , und wo hate
the press frequently , but wo uro apt to ad

wo know that the press Is always nblc U

and dodging up Douelas sti-oot to avoid meet

physical manner the fact that they difToroi

For myself , I recall the days \vucn It tooli
six-blocks' walk for n certain newspaper inVl.
to avoid meeting un enraged landlady , nn
when all the dividends of Omnlm nnwspnpors
combined for n vnnr would not have paid the

"Tho Omaha pnns Ims nlwnyn led
this city , It has nluays blazed
the way of every public Improvement. It
has cleared the track for the Investment of

nnd stood shoulder to shoulder when the
prosperity of the fair city was immiltcd.
[ Prolonged npplnuso.j In no city In the

"Thnt was n remnrkablo combination or

and the lawyer , which I'ducatod the people ol
this state on the subject of nutl-piiihlbitlon.
Hut , gentlemen , you addressed only a few
thousand ntn time from tlio platform amid u
whirlwind of cheers. It was when the prosd
put In cold typo those remnrkablo debates
that hundreds of thousands of voters read nnd
rotle"ted over your arguments and the calm
consideration of n quiet hour clinched the un-
dlsputablo facts nnd llgures which you so
ably presented. Tlio press was the greatest
ally and the mostpowerful Instrument in that
most Important Htrugglo through wnlch wo
have passed. And at the front , striking with
all 1U old-tlmo vigor , stood Tun OM \ n13un ,
gathering votes wherever It went nnd prov
