WISES AM) WISE HOUSES
METHODS BY WHICH CHAMPAGNE
Hoffman House Gatherings-Some of
the Well-Known Men Who Meet at
the Hoffman Bar Room—A Few
Points About New York Politics and
New York, Oct. 29.—0 none of the
streets of New Yoi k running at right angles
with Broadway is a big but dingy store.
Great brass signs ou either side of the door
Indicate that it is a wholesale wine house.
You enter the offices, which have a dark
but not depressing appearance, anil arc met
by one of the retainers, who inquires your
business. You state that you wish to see
the head of the house, and after some delay
you are shown into the inner office of the
establishment. A mail who looks the tyjie
of an elderly French Count, but who is a
German, sits sipping champagne with a
rich customer, and when you enter he tai>s
a bell and orders the retainer, who responds
to the call, to bring another quart bottle of
wine. Two or three of the agents of the
firm drop in, and as they sip their
wine, they aid the father of the house,
who-e establishment and attaches represent
the typical rich wine place of the metropolis,
tell you about the wine business of America.
You hear the somewhat astonishing asser
tion that the people of the United States
are drinking little if any more imported
wine than they did a decade ago, notwith
standing the increase of population and
wealth. You are told that this is because
the mass of Americans appear to be becom
ing more economical and to be learning to
drink more l>oer and less wine.
New York, of course, eousumes more
champagne than any other city in the
United .States, but Chicago uses a large
amount of it. This is due to the fact that
it is a great speculative centre. Sr>e ulators
are the most liberal imbibers of champagne
in the country, and places which eater to
them are constantly besieged by the keen
agents of wine houses
These agents are fashionably dressed, ele
fnnt gout.emcn. but tln ir life is a hard one.
hey must drink wine and spend money
lilierally, and each must have, besides a
pleasing address, aa iron constitution. They
must know and be on good terms with the
bartenders and wine stewards at the fash
ionabie resorts of the city, for little care
lessncss in beeping wide a proper tem
perature or in serving it may ruin its sale
to desirable customers. They must know
everybody who is worth knowing ami spend
their liberal alio n ances for incidental with
judgment. One agent for a then compara
tively obscure firm had its wine put on the
bills of fare of nearly every hotel in New
York not long ago by reason of his exten
sive acquaintance and popularity, but the
firm objected to the extent of his expense
account and he left them, taking with him
much of his custom.
A veteran agent of one of the wine houses,
who, like many of the profession, had his
training in Europe, tells of his experience
one day at a restaurant in a small German
town. He entered with five gentlemen of
prominence who were on a rural excursion
with him and won the astonishment and ad
miration of the loiterers about the place
when he gave the order: “Bring me six lx>t
tles of champagne and six glasses. 1 ’ A
peasant who was considered a great man
by bis townsmen bad entered and heard the
order. Determined not to let his glory fade
before the lustre of the strangers, be turned
to the waiter and in a loud and pompous
tone said: “Bring me six bottles of chain- '
pagneand one glass.” His order and liis as- I
tonishing feat of drinking nearly all the
champagne raised him mightily m the esti
mation of his admirers.
The great champagne firm has ite depart
ment of still wines conducted by experts in
that branch of the trade, who will tell
you the age and pedigree of a wine by tast
ing it They will tell you that Americans
are making comparatively slow progress in
learning to drink expensive still wines, and
that champagne is not after all the most ex
pensive or vinous drinks. Clarets and
Rhine wines at $6 a bottle are sold in con
siderable quantities, and Giovanni Moro
sini. Mr. Gould’s right hand man, who is
not a wine drinker himself, but keepsa well
stocked cellar, has some of that peculiarly
rich brand of Italian wine known as
Chianti, which is almost worth its weight
in gold. The average New York wine firm
occasionally sends a young man
to France to perfect him in
the study of his business. One of
these has just returned and he states that
the chempagne and still wine product of
the present season is less in quantity but
probably better in quality than that of last
year. The French wine growers are slowly
learning the vaiue of a certain application
about the vines as a protection against mil
dew. and nearly every vineyard where this
was not used proved a failure this year.
The young agent made the astonishing dis
covery that the iieople in the champagne
district drink very little champagne. The
Frenchman and German usually prefers a
red wine, ami to meet the demand one firm
is now producing what it calls ruby cham
There are some royal wine drinkers in New
York. One of these is a young man who
may lie seen occasionally at the fashionable
calc and who is isiinted out by the epicures
hs the person who inherited Sam Ward’s
stock of rare old liquors. Fat Gilmore, the
famous musical director, never drinks any
thing else but champagne, and he is consid
ered one of the best judges of it in New
York. There is a modest little restaurant
on one of the crosstown streets of the city,
whose proprietor is counted by friends who
long for a taste of his private stock of Bur
gundy, and who envy him because ho has
been able to drink it all his life without get
ting the gout.
The association of epicures known as the
Terrapin Club are constantly on the lookout
for choice Madeira, which they use in cook
ing their feasts ol diamond backs. Recently
a member found live bottles of it at an old
wine shop in a cheap quarter of the city.
The place had changed bauds, and the new
proprietor was asked what he would take
tor the liquor. He was getting $1 50 a bot
tle for his Madeira, and lie gladly sold the
epicure the five bottles at that price. When
he discovered that it was some choice old
wine, worth at least $5 a bottle, he tried in
vain to annul the bargain.

I went into the Hoffman House cafe the
other night after the theatre, and I was
struck by the general air of happiness and
good humor that pervaded the place. It,
was in the very beat of the political fight,
and the big room was filled with politicians,
actors and men-about-town. Familiar faces
were seen on every side, from such fledg
lings as Edward Hothern, son of the famous
old comedian, and James G. Blaine, Jr., the
son of his eminent father, to old-timers like
Harry Hill, the dive-keeper, and Frank
Work, the banker. Young Sothem lias
rather a striking face, but his companion,
Blaine, is about as sappy, puerile and
effeminate-looking a youngster as I have
ever seen. His features are small, his figure
slim, and he dresses in the most advanced
und dudish attire. He looks like a dude
from the suburbs and not a dude from New
York. There is a certain provincialism
about him that intensifies the effect of his
De Lancey Niooll has just been indorsed
by the Republicans for the District Attor
neyship, It is in one sense the most remark
able fight that has yet taken place for that
office in the history of New York politics. |
The District Attorney’s office did its duty
under tlio law in prosecuting the tssxile i
Aldermen. New York was so delighted at j
the discovery that it had at least one faith

it immediately seized upon all its employes
and tried to exalt them in political favor.
There is something almost painful in the ef
fect of any kindness on the j>urt of a New
York officeholder to a voter. It is so unex

a strong local following. The Dem

straggle betwen the friends of Niooll and

Ntroll was left out in the cold. There'.qxm
Niooll decided to run on an independent
ticket; and he was taken upand indorsed
by the Republican party, it was just after
the Kepuulieuns had indorsed the young

Niooll had put his head in the door for a
moment and he w as instantly surrounded by
friends. He was quiet and dignified, but lie
could not help showing some of the elation
lie felt over the proofs he just had of bis
popularity. He shook hands heartily with
his friends and hastily retired. Col. Fel
lows, small of stat ure, round, red-faced and
genial, stood by the oyster counter with a
fork in one hand and a wary eye ou the
oysters. Every instant some nu n would
rush up and so:*.* him by the hand and
nearly wring it off of his arm, while he
promised his enthusiastic support und pro
phesied victory. The Colonel would smile,
squeeze the hand in return, spear an oyster,
and swallow it hastily in time for the next
man. A wall circle of enthusiastic admirers
stood about, four feet away, and gazed lov
ingly at the orator and candidate. Com
missioner Jacob Hess an<i Senator Fred
Gibbs stood arm-in-arm at the. bar, two
stalwart, broad-shouldered and happy men.
They are war horses of the Republican
party. Talking to them was Douglas
Levine, a small, thick-set and amiable man
that does not believe in anything that is not
Democratic. Jimmy Oliver, once a news
boy and now a legislator, stood with his
arm on Ed Stokes’shoulder, talking confi
dentially to the millionaire speculator and
hotel keener. Both men were prematurely
gray, and their w hite heads were in sharp
contrast to tlioir ruddy faces. Con
gressman Bourse < ,'ockran, who has
a head like n buffalo, stood talking
to E. G. Glm iiv, and Little Marshall
Wilder and Rob Hilliard were rolling
around in two chairs and pounding the ta
bles in front of them with delight at each
other’s stories. They presented a wonder
ful contrast. Hilliard, tall, athletic, well
molded, handsome and the acknowledged
king of the dudes: Wilder, a dwarf, or
rather a cripple, lacking everything that
Hilliard possessed, except unbounded ani
mal spirits and exhaustless good nature.
Maurice Barrymore, suave and muscular,
leaned over A. C. Gunter, the playwright,
and discussed the limitations of different
actors, w hile James Barton L'V wandered
around amiably from one group to another,
his round face beuming happily. Gen.
Barnum and Maj. Rice talked war and
Republicanism till the glasses danced
on tlie bar, and there were dozens of round
ers and Wall street men like Charlie Johns,
Jeff George and Sam King, who drank
champagne liberally and were willing to bet
on anything in sight. No reception in a
private house could ever have had the ease
anil jollity of this assembly. Every man
was acquainted with liis neighbor, though
there were 200 men in the room, and, curi
ously enough, there was very little drinking
at the bar. Occasionally someone would
give an order, but the glasses stood idle
while the discussions waxed hot. It was
the fim of meeting there that caused the
crowd to collect for a chat an hour before
bedtime. Blakely Hall.

Byron Benue: t, W. H. Itjen and E. L.
Wauklyn by Justice Magill on complaint of
Dr. N. Webster and B. E.'.Sawyer, charging
them with false swearing as regards their

affidavit to the effect that the names on the
petition were placed there voluntarily and
without hope of reward by the parties
themselves. In the petitions of the above
named de:-lulants the names of Dr. Web

assert that they neither signed the petitions
themselves nor authorized anyone else to

that, in making affidavit to the effect
that the complainants did sign, the de

THE ARRIVAL AT ATHENS.
Athens, Ga., Oet. 29.—This afternoon
about 500 people assembled at the Georgia
railroad depot to welcome Aliss Winnie
Davis and All's Hayes to the (.'lassie City. A
committee of Athenians, as also a com
mittee from the Atheiiatuin Club, were
present, each in a handsome carriage drawn
by four beautiful gray horses decked in
red, white and blue ribbons. Promptly at
5:30 o’clock the shrill whistle was heard and
tbe train with its distinguished passengers
in a special car came rolling into the depot.

Miss Davis and party were escorted from

were many disappointed faces among the
old veterans as the train rolled in this after
noon and they saw that their old chieftain
had not come, but as the stately figure of
Aliss Winnie passed them tle y stepped back,

ORIGINALITY IS EVERYTHING.
How Fashionable Women Create a
New York, Oct. 29. —Anew conceit with
modistes is to ornament all kindsof bonnets,
hats and muffs with heads of animals, which
are very pretty and original, although, per
haps, valueless from a zoological standpoint.
These heads, of cours*-. resemble nothing in
the whole animal kingdom, and the result
is, therefore, tlio more chic, or chieu, as the
French put it. Every year sere tiie tendency
in fashions point toward the extraordinary
and tiie bizarre. The commonplace has
had its day. A woman may now bo original,
odd, grotesque, anything, in short, but
ordinary. If she lias any sort of individu
ality she can gratify her own taste so as
always to make a distinct figure in any
assembly. If she lacks, however, a decided
personality she must resort to tiie con
spicuous in dress. To be like everybody else
means to be nothing. Fur this reason
ingenious Parisian dressmakers and milli
ners study their subjects and devise special
costumes, ornaments and combinations for
particular customers. A fashionable woman
can often create a sensation by tiie merest
trifle in the details of her toilet. She will
add a flower, a ribbon, a jewel, or a bit of
lace to her gown in a way that nobody else
has ever thought of, and straightway a
fashion is introduced and taken up by a
horde of imitators, who too often forget
that to follow blindly another’s idea is to
argue an absence of convolutions in one’s
own cranium. Women also frequently im
agine that the unusual is of necessity the
elegant and beautiful. It goes without
saying that this is a great mistake. Oddity
in costume, unless tempered by the best
possible taste, inclines toward vulgarity.
French modistes seldom err as to correct
taste, and in one other respect American
dressmakers have much to learn from them.
I refer to the harmonious blending of color.
Our shops exhibit the most costly and
gorgeous materials, but our dressmakers,
unfortunately, do not know how to put them
together. Clara Lanza.

When no other priest is present, and in
ease of grave necessity, Dr. McUlyun ean

sacraments of his church —but he ean

ROWLAND—Died, at Savannah, Ga.. Oct

year of his age.
Seldom do we chronicle a sadder death. A
few years ago the subject of this brief notice
entered upon his business life with every pros
pect of a long and successful career. Endowed
by nature with talents of a sutierior order, he
was enabled to hold positions of responsibility
iu business at an early age; and the future, even
when a mere lad. held out to him the promise
of all that could lie expected or hoped for by
loving friends. But Death "loves a shining
mark." He throws his dark mantle where he
will, and spares not even the young. Our friend
has gone out from amongst us, aud has passed
into the great shadow forever.
But his memory will ever linger with us. His
sincerity, his truthfulness, his devoted friend
ship, his inanlv and courteous bearing, w ill ever
keep him iu the minds and hearts of all who
knew him, and they who knew him best always
loved him most.
Farewell to the friend of my youth;
Farewell to the friend whom I loved;
A better, a truer, a nobler,
Has ne'er from this earth been removed.
