Andrew Jackson's memory will go m
banqueted next Friday, so far as the
eld Jacksnnlau club of Omaha is con
cerned, unless eomeons puts in a
hurry-up. call and saves the day. For
twenty-five years the annlvei-sary of the
battle of New Orleans has been cele
brated with a banquet and miles of
thundrous oratory by the Jacksonta club
the evening of January 8.
Last night was set for a meeting of
the club to deride whether to hold such
a banquet this year. President Frank
Weaver did not appear. Secretary C C.
R dwood popped his head Into the door
at Patterson block and left without wait
ing for any members to gather. Later
an even half dosen of the old members
straggled In, but the house was never
called to order.
W. J. Yanoy. who never missed n meet
ing, unless he had a broken rib. was
on deck early, but lit never mentioned
Andrew Jackson, lie argued with Joe
Sherry against the autocratic methods
of the Metropolitan Water board. In
stead. John Murphy, who has been a
staunch Jarksonlan, did not touch on
the meimry of "Old Hickory." but dis
cussed hla ini(ia) efforts on his new
Murphy Tell Yarn.
James Murphy, told a long and laugh
able yarn of an awful calling down he
and eleven more Jurymen once got from
a district Judge, when they refused to
convict a man. R. J. Altchlson and L.
B. Johnson dipped Into the various dis
cussions, which held the attention of the
half doien patriots until near midnight,
subjects that varied from the Cudahy
kidnapping, to ballot box stuffing In the
old days, from the price of water meters
to the price of prunes, from Bryan's
campaign for congress In 1S2 to Cleve
land's dcTent at the hands of Harrison,
from the durability of auto tire to the
undrairabilitv of yellow jackets.
Pari)' (lulls Frown.
Still the meeting was not called to
order. The portrait of Andrew. Jackson
scowled down upon the six, even as
"Old Hickory" scowled when he was a
federal Judge In the district of Tennes
see and stopped a criminal with tho point
of a rail. The serene face of Washing
ton overlooked the smoke-filled room,
with Jaw set Just as they were set
the day the Father of His Country gave
a neighbor a horse whipping when h
caught him shooting a mallard on the
plantation. Thomas Jefferson peered
down from a dusty frame with the same
patriotic fervor that flowed In hie face
when he wrote, "When in the course of
human events," etc. Even William J.
Bryan peered from a mahogany frame
In the corner as he heard the assemb
lage wondering whether in the face of
hi bolting of Pahlmnn for governor, he
would now turn hi color and recommend
l)ahlman for a federal appointment.
Marble Heart for All.
Yet the portraits of the worthy, patriot
on tho wan might as well have been
chorus girl photos coming with a pound
of tobacco for all the recognition they
received from the club that was organ
ized to honor the names of great demo
crats. For gradually one by one the
little company began to shake themselves
Into their overcoats. One by one they
began to shamble out of the door.
And then as the lights were turned
out, Just a century after the night that
Andrew Jackson worked all night throw
ing up breastworks of bales of cotton
t New Orleans, the straggling remains
of what was once a great club bear
ing his name, left Andrew Jackson in
the dust and darkness of the llttlo room,
