Provides Delightful Entertainment
for Republican Co-Workers.
Select Couhcllmnn-elect Duunu AV.
Humphrey, of tho Second ward, one of.
Carbondnle's leading business men,
and substantial citizens,-wns -host last
night nt a dinner given at the Harrison
house In appreciation of the work of
the hustlers of the ward who mndo cer
tain the glorious success of tlte Re
publlcnns In the Second ward, the clos
est ward In the city. The affair was a
delightful one, divested of all formality
and an occasion of renewal of fealty to
Republican principles and of promises
to work to duplicate the success of the
late election In the Second ward In all
the wards of tho city where such op
portunities offered themselves.
The dinner was a splendid repast add
ing to the reputation which the Harri
son house enjoys In disposing, of such
enterprises. The menu which the din
ers heartily, discussed as they sat
round the triangle of tables was:
nine points' boullllon Clastone. young
turkey, with stuffed oyster dressing and
giblet sauce, cranberry sauce, ham,
wldpped potatoes, June pens, fillet of
beef, with mushrooms, veal croquettes,
celery, olives, mixed pickles, pickled
beets, chicken salad, ice cream, maca
roons, fruit enle, angel food, nut cake,
fruit, coffee and chocolate!
When cigars were lighted, Mr.
Humphrey became toaslniaster an
characteristic of him, he surprised his
guests and friends by the happy way
In which he acquitted himself. He
marks were made by all of the guests,
but tho most Interesting were the ad
dresses by Frank S. Hoemmelmeyer, the
Republican candidate for mayor and
Abe L. Salem, common councilman
elect. Mr. Kommelmeyer ' made a strong
point for the. strenuous young men In
politics and in this connection pointed
out President Roosevelt, Jerome and
Goddard, of New York city, as splen
did examples of their force In the poli
tical life of the country.
Mr. Salmi, in discussing Ids big ma
jority, said characteristically that the
man who would be successful In poll
tics, as in all other things, must go
in to win. This, it can be truly said,
fioni bis successful record, is Mr.
Salmi's motto In all his ventures.
After the addresses, a vote of thanks
went to Mr. Humphrey and to tho
Harrison house for the service of tho
evening, which brought the delightful
night to a close.

The Snow's Metamorphosis Tersely
Told by Colonel John McComb.
Two persons sat in The Tribune of
fice yesterday discussing the fate of tho
snow-llakes that swept the town a few
days ago. Colonel John McComb was
one of the two; the modest representa
tive of The Tribune can prove no alibi,
so he must have been the other. The
different processes of numerous Mr.
Flake were touched on; his passing,
his metamorphosis, Ids loss of reputa
tion In the face of other forces of the
olr, and a whole lot of such things.
Each of the two had his opinion of the
reign and downfall of Mr. Flake, but
It took the Colonel to aptly describe
matters. Beaching into his vest pocket
and pulling out his fountain pen, he
dashed off two paragraphs, which
everybody will agree are an apt and
right clever description of Mr. Snow
llnke's sojourn nnd his loss of reputa
tion. The story runneth thus:
