You have on of directors he continued Genile Meti who not Only men of words but i think you will concede that they men of deeds from the appearance of our new Home. I think you will nil endorse the action of Tho Board in provi aug to lib tally for the ladies. We realize the necessity of Weinig solid with them. Following the Church the school House acid the theater there is not Liing that so clearly Marks the Progress of civilization As the modern club. In sparsely settled country districts the Blacksmith shop or the country grocery store and fourth rate Post office combined were and the places where the friends and neighbors gather around to give expression to their opinions on the leading topics of Tho Day and to discuss the politics of the time. Indeed it Lias been truly a said that in fourth class Post offices the polities of the country is made. This club will form a meeting place for to citizens of this part of Tho City i Trust. I desire on behalf of the Board of directors to thank the member of Tho club for their encouragement their kindness and their appreciation of its work during these Many Mouths of preparation. Now you Sec the club House As it is. It remains for you to maintain it and to keep the climb up to i s present Standard of excellence. Or. Bryant then very favourably introduced St. Chair Mckelway who was received with warm applause. Lie said a a air. President and gentle men i Baliche that i am Here to night As a substitute for general Slocum. I had a great Deal rather be his substitute in the year 1891 than to have been his sub Timte Between i8�o1 and laughter although if what i a to heard be True the dangers he then encountered to ins life will not be More than those i am to confront at a later period to my Dige Tiou. Laughter it is not. However time to die jest yet. Laughter and continued applause. A voice a we. See Tuo Geu Tieman Evi Doutly belongs to that Roy Ai organization of minds which under a re pubic May not to incorrectly termed a dynasty. Loud laughter and cheers or president the desire of tuft race to perpetuate it Buff with thu love of Kindred established to Home. Eventually civilization and religion of to Rcd the desirability of monogamous Homes. The Home thus became the unit or the a Date. Just is the ii Izon became the unit of suffrage. Upon the a Ccu parts of Homes accessible by Leigh uni Hood and congenial by similarity of Tantee or beef the priv Eippie of combination took effect. That Prince a in religion took the form of churches. In business interests it took the form of guilds associations leagues Ami the like in plunder it has taken the form of politics. in mystery Aud spi Tacic it takes Pic Lonu of Lodge. In Fellowship it has Tanen the form of clubs. Brooklyn always a City of churches and of houses has Tiff Long been a City of to Ives of guilds and of leagues. Bin it was late in becoming a City of clubs flip Fuentes Titu which it took on this feature is not discreditable. The rapidity with which this form has multiplied of late in this Community is not surprising. Brooklyn h to and has move pleasure More sociability and More hospitality in her Homes than any other City. had Ami Lias More Force Ami fragrance More versatility and More virility in her pulpit than any other City the wants or other communities less Lur Lunate thanoor own earlier demanded that clubs should be established in them. Brooklyn Lus taken its own time and its own Way in our timing this luxury of clubs which in process of use will become a necessity. We All know that As journalism in Brooklyn sprung from the illustrious example of a single newspaper which i am too modest to mention laughter so also have Eibs in Brooklyn a Primig from the inspiration of the existence and from Tho copying or the avoidance of the example of the old men s Christian association at the Corner of in Pierrepont Aud Clit of streets. Laughter first thereafter cat no the Hamilton. Following have born the columbian Olio the Lincoln club in which they not Oiny the Friend it the bullies of Temperance laughter the Carle toil club supplying the Fedun Iii wants of the l Snopl the Oxford club crowning Limo neighbourhood and supplementing rather than neutralizing the influences of or. Cuy Ler s Churchi laughter Rue Union league club the pleasures of platen i am barred by the detestable character of my politics laughter Ami applause and last a Dougli far from least to pm Hanover club slow aug that that which without tue approbation of to Brooklyn Baity times is called by men the Eastern District daughter come to imitate or emulate to equal or to exceed the social and forces of the Western District. Any comparative delay that Lias marked the provision of this a Pieu did mansion has been apologized for to night. Without knowing in detail the reasons it Lias seemed to to an outsider that your Progress Lias been rapid and not Siow. Surely the result crowns the work. This spacious Assembly room will us come in Tho near a a Ture ibo Point of assemblage of consultation and of Fellowship of the Best citizenship of Tut portion of our great City. These ample apartments Wilt by graced with work of Aud made fragrant Aud forceful with Friendly exc aug of thought and of sentiment. 1 am glad that you appreciate to direction in Winch to club forces of Limo last decade of the nineteenth Century moving. I am glad that you have provided a Annex for the ladies in this institution. Last Friday evening i was the guest of a women club Korosis. There or. Iii ahead and myself made addresses a did about ten other men but the address of each Lulu was preceded by a address from to lady announcing and exhibiting the subject to be talked., about and calling Tuou the get Luau who followed her to respond to it amplify it or to pass upon the posts that had been previously taken. Ami i risk untiring in saying that for refinement for Eunise Lens and for lucidity of thought the addresses of the ladies in their own Bailiwick not Only favourably compared with but Lar exceeded those of the gentlemen with the exe Eption of Tho address of or. Halstead and of at Otuel Man whom 1 am still too modest to mention. Laughter Aud applause without desiring to interrupt Tho conversation beyond the doors 1 wish to say that while 1 believe m a Many Soiu by use it considered Aud in another portion of the neighbourhood or City m a woman a , by itself considered that the club of the future will be simply a club of which men and women will Botu be members and that then do Small degree of antagonism which m gentle exist toward the club a a possible mat of the Home will Long ago Piave disappeared. You and 1 believe in Thode Evno represent the sex of our Mother our sister and our wives. We do not sympathize with the cynical Frenchman who said Mazih sleep was his last repose for when he awoke there was Poznan. You win lipid Tuo Success of your club dependent upon the operation of easy principles. Let the Guver Niue end of the club govern. Lei the Wellov Phiiip end of the club fraternize. Make no rigid and numerous rules hard to live up to but Icahn the in sons abilities As you will team the pleasure of club slip. By experience trusting More to tune and to interest Tuan to devices or bylaws or even to Constitution. Applause i thank you heartily for your attention. I jul not longer intrude Between your desires and the burning ambition of those behind me to speak. I pro lie not Only for this club great Success out fur this portion of the City a series of Ciuba representing its wants Aud it wishes. Us taste and its opinions and for Brooklyn that Prosperity in All her affairs which comes whenever the District in which 1 live provides the mayor Aud the District in which Jou live the majority to elect him. Laughter and Long continued applause judge Henry a. Moore was the next speaker introduced by or. Bryant. He said in substance Why anybody should be introduced to say anything or to attempt to make anything in the semblance of a speech alter what to have Hoard from Jar. Mckelway is a secret which rests alone in the bosom of or. Bryant. But i would be an ungrateful Man indeed if i did not say a few words in response to your kind invitation. Evhen about ten Days ago i saw that the Hanover club was to be opened and Havo a reception i prayed but perhaps you will not believe that. Laughter j hoped that i Wiuff get an invitation. A Little while afterwards one come along and i cannot Tell you of the anticipations of pleasure that i had. A letter came to to this morning froth a old Frioud of mine nuking me to speak at least ten minutes to you to night. Now i so Mil leave speech making to air. Air incl Vray. He is a professional speech Makor. He passes most of his life in inflicting upon buffering audiences speeches. Air. Mckelway Rose instantly and replied a my sentences do not give half so much pain As your.�?�. Thi Swift Quot repartee brought Forth loud cheers applause and this is like anticipating Purgatory on Hie part. To has Norer received one of my sentences but Lio knows a Liat he deserves. Laughter Aud applause hell get it one of these Days. It does seem to me that the organization of such class As these Marks a i Progress in our civilization and i congratulate the citizens of this part Tif Brooklyn upon the fact that this wave of civilization is reaching their boundaries now. I am a Little surprised however to find the respected president of Thi club calling this part of Tho town Williams Burch. It. Never was Yili Ramsburgh never. But gentlemen that is not anything perhaps to its discredit. I remember Tho time when this Section was nothing but Corn Fields and mud holes. The transformation seems marvelous indeed. It is not a very great while since there seemed to to two popular ideas. One was that Tho Gallows was the very Gate of Paradise and the other was that the club was the Gate to that place Down below which my Friend brother Peters Doe not believe in. Now gentlemen allow me to congratulate Yon on this Beautiful Bouse. You Flavo place cozy comfortable and Homelike. It is better for it to be so Thau to Havo it More grand and up leu. Did. I Hope Yon will succeed and Prosper i have no doubt but that you will. Sou deserve it. Or. a advice is sound advice. Allow me to thank you for your kindness gentlemen in inviting me hero to night to make these trivial remarks. 1 wish your club All Prosperity now and for All time. Long applause or. Bryant then presented exp Rost master Joseph c. Hendrix who said in parts the Hanover club has already been extremely fortunate. They have had presented to them Tho double breasted Back action automatic phrase maker of America. Laughter they have had the Best known criminal Judigo in All this Region get up and Tell them that he recognizes them All laughter not being upon the programme in my own mind i was expecting Uriate of Halstead for whose Especial Benefit Tho Union league club with All it acrimony toward democrats was organized to speak myself to be reserved simply As a listener. This club Means a Good Deal to my imagination. Coming from the old Mon s Christian Alao citation at the Corner of Pierre Poujaud Pii Uton streets of which the most conspicuous Christian is judge Moore per nip is nothing but Good Waties. Wherever a Canter becomes Strong in population wherever it gathers about itself wealth and intelligence by an by gentlemen meet together first in borne Good neighbors House then in More Rao deat apartment Aud finally in a splendid club House now get Lemmeu in Latt Noh Ine the club upon the great sea of social life in Brooklyn it u important that you should Settle its character for character it must Hare. The character of Tho clubs of the pity of Brooklyn is Oue of Good. Strong devoted and Loyal citizenship a character that regards Brooklyn a a metropolitan Center of itself. Each club Mast take of a different character though All toward one final goal the Best i Tiff zen ship of the City of Brooklyn. There Greo times ahead in this City. We getting on rapidly Aud no Man needs to indulge in any great prevision to see that a trome Doub population will accumulate Here which will have its feet washed by the wavelets of the Atlantis Ocean on the one hand and which will scarcely limit itself in spreading Ovet. The Andalon the Hudson River. On this Une and from out thib sturdy yeomanry of Ortiz Onazip i think we can have a prevision of Good to Buff to come for the Hanover club. Applause the next speaker introduced Wab Murat Halstead who said i should hesitate to undertake to add even a a cry. Few sentence to the affluence of speaking we have had this evening. However a few thing have suggested themselves to my mind Thi evening which May to appropriate. I can see no reason Why there should be any he station or doubt in speaking of the Eastern District of Tho City. That might become a term of great dignity and distinction As for instance the West end of London where the expanding magnificence of that populace is especially significant. Club exist. They meet a Public want. They serve the wants of Tho people and they to be appreciated. They May become in every Way conducive to the cultivation of a better Public Andrii and give the citizens who gather together an Opportunity for the formation of an executive faculty that will take something out of the hands of those who exclusively and professionally handle politic a. The club has its uses and is a institution that will flourish doubtless. In Brooklyn i have had the Honor and the pleas nil a of the hospitality of a number of clubs. I have not As yet been Able to make Tho round of them completely. But i Hope to persevere in Tho Good work anti familiarize my Elf More and Moro with them. This Cine certainly has a very pleasant location and i feel myself no longer a stranger in Brooklyn when i re member that since i have been Here Thi Superb club House has been cons Ruoto i. I take it gentlemen that this club is one of the exp resin no of that Friendl incs in a Community of that congeniality of sentiment and of that neighbourly interest and kindness that is character Telic of your City and distinguishes it above other. I have to make my personal acknowledgements for the hospitality and the Kindne and the generosity with which i have been received in this cumin Unity. I am grateful for the attention that you have kindly bestowed upon my remark. Applause the Rev. Henry a. Powell was then introduced by or. Bryant As the last speaker. He said in part i do not know of anything More that i can say in addition to the remark of my predecessors. I find my blk in the midst of a difficulty. If i were not a poor unlearned c erg Mun. If i know nothing whatever about that terrible game which men Call euchre 1 should beg leave looking into your face to night and after an examination of Thi building to say that club Trumps Aud that the Hanover club is the joker. Laughter and applause i Havo been studying the subject of club during the Day. I knew nothing about them until about 9 of clock this morning when i began my investigations. I have been trying to find out the of your name what is the a Yovor club suggestive of i found in Tho course of my search that Hanover is a province of Prussia. I then thought the member of this club must to German. But looking further i found this statement the climate of Hanover is moist Aud foggy. Laughter i to adored whether Itiat Waun i Tiiu Ati ii that Thiwa to be a Motet Placo and men wore to go Home in a foggy condition. Laughter so i came Here in a state of mental confusion. But i find that this club i to stand in this part of the City of Brooklyn Tor Tho highest Typo of Liberal Manly and social Fellowship. The character of the men who comp so Tho Hanover club is a guarantee to the people of Lii Community that it will maintain a High tone and by it life and activities it will Merit Tho approval Aud Euthern of them All. If anyone a a word to a against the Hanover club to will find himself in a minority this club Mark the improvement Aud the a Piryt of improvement in Thi part of the City. Beautiful in a every part in the Harmony of its fittings and in All it it testifies to the Good judgment of your committees and to the bound sense of the club. You will go on and grow. Sound men will govern the club and it wiil before Long Liao won the esteem or Thi entire Community silencing every mean Petty word or utterance of critic Teui. You on the right Road in your beginning Aud All you have to Dziato go straight ahead in order to wih the highest possible successes applause following the address an elaborate supper wan served in the cafes downstairs. Expressions of admiration were to be Hoard on All sides in the inspection of the club House and the reception broke up at a late hour. Rev. J. Wells d. D., the venerable pastor of the South third Street presbyterian Church in sending regrets at inability to attend wrote a in common with Many of my fellow citizen i Hope Tuat Tho Hanover club May have All the excellencies of the Best institutions of the kind and that the new club House May be a Center of influence for Good not Only to the member of Tho club and their families but to our part of the i a a veterans have a merry time.

Prod Coloia of a a la he oct Oroon at the criterion theater the criterion was filled last night every seat was occupied and even women Wero compelled to stand among the rows of men who lined the bide Aud Back Walls of the auditorium. As one of the audience said the theater is too Small and the Academy is too Large for comfortable hearing. The Melpomene is a popular society and the members Carnot do enough to make their friends and guests comfortable a hence the crowd. The presentation of the a oct Oroon was not As perfect As it might have been. The play itself is one of Tho beat constructed melodramas of the late Dion Boucicaut and while for dramatic effect the plot and characters strongly marked there is an uncanny element in Trio sentiment Aud a cold blooded morbid Ness in the Story that leaves an unpleasant feeling. The performance was to some extent a worthy handling of the play. The cast was As follows George Peyton mrs. Peytona a Nephew Bert Andriks Jacob Mocloskey an overseer James Van Dyk Salem Scudder a Yankee Virgil Lopez Pete an old Darky. Albert Mealoy Sunnyside a planter w. J. Moran Lafouche a Rich planter or. J. J. Mackey Paul a yellow boy master Albert Lopez Ratts Captain of a Mississippi Steamer j. E. Quinn colonel Poindexter an auctioneer Frank j.

Or. James Van Dyk made his first appearance this season in Tho role of Jacob Mccloskey a heavy villain of the old school. Or. Van Dyk has not Tho voice that a conventional stage villain a supposed to possess. His per ional appearance and voice were More suggestive of a love making operatic Tenor than a heavy Basso villain of the play. But to read his lines , and Savo for a desire to Over act when a quiet passion would have been More effective begot through Tho part fairly Well. Or. Virgil Lopez As Salem shudder was Over weighted. In Tho first place he was imperfect in bin Linen and on several occasions had to be prompted. He played the Parta if to had Beon called upon to do so at Tho eleventh hour in a Case of emergency. I dialect particularly in Tho first and second acts was More that of a bowery boy than Tho typical character Yankee that Boucicaut intended. In the last half of the drama however lie improved in that particular. The really artistic portraiture of Tho men of the cast was or. Mea Foy picture of old Pote Tho Darky. This Man is an artist. There is no straining after effects what he Doe is easy natural and brimful of humor. Howa particularly Good in the auction a Cone and ins dialect and by play in Good Tasto. Or. Frank j. Higgins a the auctioneer and or. Quinn As Ratts were both Good. Or. Nydam As the Indian Wah no tee was picturesque Aud effective. He would have been still More so had he stripped himself of the thick Buckskin coat worn during the most of the play when to started out on the Warpath to track Mcclora key to his death in the Louisiana Cane Brake. Master Albert Lopez As the boy Paul did Well but should to play the part again to should make up As a a a yellow boy not As a Stone coloured in the scene where the planters Southern Yontl cinch they bump owed to be with the exception of Mecloskey Euter the House they should remove their hat. Of the women of the cast miss Ella Griffith Greene a the Star. The part of Zoe Calls for an actress of much ability and miss Greece in the Nauy phase of character embodied in the part of Tho hapless oct Oroon girl was equal to each occasion. The make up was excellent but might have been improved by a Little More color in the Cheeks. Her a peaking voice a Good her Reading intelligent Aud forcible and her actions picturesque and Graceful. In her scenes with Scudder her facial play was expressive and in the sentiment no. Beenes with George Peyton Sho Wab tender and affectionate. Her action Oliou she found herself bold As a Blavo to Mecloskey was and her death a realistic enough to gain a round of applause. Mia Greece inky feel Satin Ifield with her Good work. Mia Mabel Smith a Dora sunny Ido a Southern Belle looked Hau drome and played the Young gushing Southern girl effectively and intelligently. Or. Lawson a mrs. Peyton gave a smooth and consistent picture physically and artistically of Tho Southern aristocrat possessed of the prejudices and affections of her kind. The makeup of or. Moran a sunny a planter is deserving of a word of commendation. The rest of the cast had Little to do but that Little was done properly. The third and fourth act i were not no to the Mark they require con it id Raulo rehearsing should the society intend to produce Tho play again the situations in the groupings were huddled and awkward and Waits in the business lifter dialogue cues wore Given were very noticeable.

This Little machine of brass which was originally designed and is now sold for Tho use of mathematicians weary Cashiers bookkeeper and others whose daily life is a Monotony of Tig Uros has proved of the greatest value to the astronomer in making calculations of space and it May by used in Many ways beside that of Mere addition.

Professor. P. H. Van Der Woyde was the next speaker and to detailed at length Trio present state of scientific investigation with regard to the properties of heat Aud Tho bearing those investigations have upon the nebular theory of Laplace. Laplace believed and taught that Tho entire universe was formed primarily from a nebulous mass which losing its heat gradually closed in from a gaseous state to amp solid which of course was then Moro readily influenced by gravitation and the solid masses gradually combined the smaller with Tho larger until planets were formed and thus the entire system was set awhirl. Professor Van Der Weydt claimed that Laplace a theory a All wrong Aud has been shown to be so by All recent a scientific investigation. He explained that the atoms from which planets were formed instead of being in the first place in a gaseous heated state were without any beat whatever until the Force of a Center of gravitation Drew them together and Tho passage of the atoms through space caused friction and consequently heat hence when planets were formed they were All in a Utu to of fusion and gradually have cooled As Tho Moon and other dead planet have done and the Earth Sun and other heated Planeta doing.
