The list of toagts was long, The health of Queen Victoria was proposed by the chairman who read a letter- dated Windsor castle from Sir Arthur John Bigge, private secretary to her majesty, saying: Her Majeaty Keturiif* Tliankri. "The queen desires me to beg that the American ambassador will be so good as to convey to the members of the American society in London the expression of her majesty's sincere thanks for the beautifully illuminated address of congratulations she received from that body. I have further to assure your excellency how deeply the queen was touched by the sentiments of sympathy with the enthusiasm of her own subjects on the sixtieth anniversary of her accession to the throne which was contained in this address from citizens of the United States." AmbafcBacIor Hay Makes a Speech. When the health of Ambassador Hay was proposed he responded with a bright speech. He °ketrhed the origin of the day, which began, he ffid, "in that pathetic thank-offering of our forefathers when they were keeping alightthespark of freedom which was uestir.ecl to kindle into such a beacon-blaze,enl'ghteningand admonishing the world. Some of our peculiar institution?." continued Hay, "thank Heaven we hr.ve lost.

Tonight we can hardly be said to be in a foreign land. A French statesman said the other day: ''Where there Is one Frenchman there is France.'

Berlin, Nov. L'ti.—Americans in Berlin met yesterday at a Thanksgiving: ban quet at the Kaiserhof. The occasion was very enjDyable. United States Ambassador White opened the toast list In «. felicitious speech, and later, in reply to a toast to his health, indulged in humorous reminiscences of former similar functions here. He concluded the open- Ing speech by proposing a joint toast to Emperor William and President McKinley, which was received with great enthusiasm. The greetings of the assembly were cabled to President McKinley. Qolte a Political Sermon. Washington, Nov. 26.—At the Metropolitan M. E. church, where President McKinley attended service, Rev. Dr. Johnston declared that prosperity is here; that of the perils that threaten the nation the chief were rum, socialism and Jesuitism. He spoke at some length against the danger of a foreign chruch obtaining ascendancy in the state. He advocated giving the Roman Catholic the same civil rights that every man enjoys, but that his church be warned to keep its hands off the state. In the course of his remarks he referred to Spain as "a burnt-out nation, the basest of kingdoms." He also referred to the danger of corrupt parties and instanced the victory of Tammany in New York. WISCONSIN DOWNS NORTHWESTERN. Foot Ball Played in Mud and Drizzling Ruin—Results of Other Games. Chicago, Nov. 26.—On a field ankle deep in mud and in a drizzling rain, before a vast crowd, the University of Wisconsin team defeated the Northwestern university eleven by the decisive score of 22 to 0. When Wisconsin had the ball—which was most of the time—Peele, Cochems and Forrest were sent through the line for gains of from three to ten yards, Cochems especially distinguishinghimself by his terrific line bucking. For Northwestern Kackson, Libberton, Perry and Sloan played the best offensive game, and Peitz and Captain Hunter covered themselves with glory in defensive work. Another lively gam« was that between the Chicago and Michigan -university elevens. It was woa by Chicago—21 to If.. Other games played here were the New Jersey All-Star team against the Chicago Athletic association eleven, in which the New Jersey men were not in it from the start, and the Chicago Bankers against the New York Knickerbockers, in which Chicago was again a victor.

Turkey Should Be the American National Bird, the Ambassador Says. Hay then paid an eloquent tribute to "the unknown nameless artist, who In the days of early New England first brought to perfection the pumpkin pie." He indorsed Benjamin Franklin's suggestion that the turkey be the national emblem instead of the eagle, "who, with aristocratic profile, loud voice and predatory disposition, hardly commends himself as the embfem of modest, industrious and conscientious democracy; while the turkey, like a true altruist, exists only for the good of others, and perishes by thousands yearly for the public welfare." In concluding his speech Hay enumerated the causes for thankfulness speak English, or if our friends on this and said: 'TVe are thankful that we can side of the ocean think that is boasting, that we talk United States, which answers equally as well for telling the truth. The great body of the people of the two countries are friends. We are the fortunate heirs to English law and. liberty, which both nations respect." Lord .Stratljconj, and Mount Royal (responding to "Our Next Door Neighbors,") said that Canada, while loyal to the queen and to Great Britain, had the fullest feeling of friendship for the United States, and he was satisfied that if either country should get into difficulties the other would help its neighbor. Hon. Sir John CJarell Barnes, justice of the high court of justice, when he proposed the health of Ambassador Hay, dwelling upon the great friendliness that he believed exists between England and the United States, said: "If the two countries will only put their backs together they can rule the destinies of the world." Arch Deacon Sinclair proposed the toa?t "The Ladies." which was responded to by Miss Genevieve Vard, the actress. Observation at »w York.

Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 26.—Robert FitZ- simmonsand Martin Julian, who showed in Lincoln with their company last night, denied the report sent out from Buffalo of another fight between Fltz- simmons and Corbett.

The entrance of the president of the chamber, Dr. Abra- hamovics, was the signal for loud and ironical salutations, which were followed by vehement Leftist shouts of "shame." Dr. Abrahamovics made art attempt to speak, but Dr. Wolff, the German Nationlist leader, interrupted him by shouting: "Some one else must take the chair, not this swindler!" Herr Schoenerer.tbe leader of the section of the German opposition, then yelled at the top of his voice: "I demand the right to speak, which I am entitled to." Wolff Says Bight Has Departed. Thereupon Dr. Wolff retorted: "There is no such thing as right in this house. It is trodden under foot by his mamelukes." As the uproar which followed showed every sign of increasing Dr. Abrahamovics adjourned the house until 3 o'clock in the afternoon, amid a storm of "hurrahs" and "bravos." The sitting was resumed at 3:30. Immediately the Leftists commenced a tremendous din. in the middle of which the German Centrist, Count Falkenhyn, conceived as a happy idea a proposal to cow the obstructionists by threatening their pockets.

Finally Herr Wolff stationed himself directly in front of the presidential tribune and began a shrill whistle. A number of deputies tried to force open the doors at the front of the platform, while a. party of Czechs endeavored to prevent them. When the tumult was at its height Herr Abrahamovics declared that he regarded the motion of Count Falkenhyn as a necessary measure of self-defense, and called for the voting. The whole Right at once arose, and the president declared the motion carried. A number of deputies then began clambering upon the president's platform, whereupon he seized his beil and left the house. Gave It Up Tor the Day. After a short interval he returned and began to address the chamber, but his voice was drowned in a torrent of Leftist yells and shouts of "Get out," and "shame," Finally the sitting was suspended for an hour, at the close of which President Abrahamovics returned and announced that in accordance with wishes expressed in many quraters. he had decided to close the sitting, to open again today.
