The Palaces In Which the People
of Washington Beside.
Senator Edmunds' new house is
the coldest and queerest thing in
"Washington architecture. It is'a fit
representative of the icjr Senatoi
from the cold mountains of Vermont.
It looks more like a prison than a
palace, and though it is made of the
warm, red, pressed brick of Phila
delphia, its construction is such that
it looks forbidding and exclusive.
Its entrance is a wide, arched door
which seem3 to have been cut
through the heavy brick walls. The
windows of the lower story are
heavily barred with iron like those
of a bank, and the cave-like en
trance of the carriageway is closed
with an iron barred gate. The
library on the second floor has a
beautiful view looking for many
miles over Washington and the sur
rounding country, but the glass is
framed in a bay .window of copper,
which is riveted all around with
great rivets, the heads of which are
as big as trade dollars. On the
ground floor is the Senator's office, a
room finished in pine of a satiny
whiteness, and lined with shelves of
the same wood. This part of the
house might, I suppose, be called
the basement, but the main entrance
leads into it, and the only difference
in finish from the floors above is that
the ceilings are lower. The house,
when one gets inside of it, looks
well enough, and is, no doubt, goingto
bo a comfortable one. It is situated
within a block or two of Blaine's
mansion, and near Rock Creek, on
whicli Robert Fulton made his first
experiments witli the steamboat.
Edmunds paid $14,000 for tho lot
last year, and I am told his new
house costs $20,000 more. He owns
also another house in Washington,
on Highland Terrace, adjoining that
of Tom Bayard, but he will rent this
now and occupy his new one. He
has also a good home in Burlington,
Vt. This last is a plain, old-fashioned
brick sti ucture, situated upon
the slope of the hill upon which the
city is built. Its windows com
mand a fine view of Lake Cham
plain and the Adirondacks, and it
has about three acres of land around
it. Edmunds can afford to own a
good house. He gets $5,000 a year
from the Senate, $5,000 a year as
counsel for the Vermont Central
Railroad Company, and he makes
Erobably about $50,000 a year out of
is outside law practice." He does
not entertain much, and his family,
as a general thing, are not in the
best of health.
JOHN A. LOGAN'S NEW HOME
Is going to be one of the most com
fortable in Washington. It cost him
only $20,000, and it has an outlook
over the whole country about Wash
ington. Sitting back of the great
granite pillars which support the
roofof its front porch, one sees the
Capitol glistening in the sunlight on
an opposite hill, and in the front the
great, white shaft of the Washington
Monument pierces the clouds. Be
low lies the city with its wide
avenues and its thousands of forest
trees, and away in the distance
winds the wide, silvery stream of
the Potomac, under the Virginia
hills. Arlington and its cemetery is
in plain view at the right, and across
the way lies Georgetown, with its
big Jesuit College, older than the
Capitol itself. The Logan house is a
red brick, wide and deep, with two
stories and many windows, the
woodwork of which is painted light
green. The front door is wide
enough to admit an express wagon,
and the great hall whicli cuts the
house in two would furnish a good
place for a country hoe-down. It is
now fitted out in Mexican and Indian
curiosities and furnished with an
tique furniture. The rooms at the
side are separated from it by por
tiere of bright-colored Mexican
cloths, which hang on brass rods
and make a very pretty effect.
There are plenty of easy chairs, a
number of rugs "and a settee or two
in this hall, and a great, Mexican
vaso stands upon a pedestal at the
side of the door to the parlor. From
the rear of the hall springs a stair
way leading to the second story, and
the rooms which go off from "it are
large, and fitted out with great, wide
crates of the style of years ago.
General Logan's "library is on tho
second floor. It is composed chiefly
of reference books, and he will not
bring his magnificent collection of
books from Chicago here.
THE HOMES OF THE CABINET MINISTERS.
Secretary Whitney has bought a
country estate near Washington. It
lies five miles from the Capitol, and
consists of about a hundred acres of
meadow and woodland. Mr. Whit
ney paid $30,000 for it, and he has
put about $10,000 upon it in tho
shape of improvements, making the
old brick mansion, built more than
a century ago, into a dwelling of
modem style and comfort. He is
well satisfied with his purchase, and
has been, I am told, offered $50,000
for it lately. Like Logan's bouse,
Secretary Whitney's country house
has a beautiful view of Washington
and its surroundings. Secretary
Whitney will, however, live in the
city during the winter season, and
he has rented a big house on Con
necticut Avenue, just above the
mansion of the British Minister,
and in what is known as Diplomatic
Row. It is by no means as fine as
the Secretary's Fifth Avenue palace,
which Oliver Payne built for his
wife at a cost, it is said, of $700,000,
but it keeps out the rain and will

Secretary Vilas has rented a house
on M. Street, just off Thomas Circle,
and near the home of Senator Con-
5er. It is a big brick, owned by a
ew pawnbroker who has made a
fortune in loaning money at 10 per
cent a month, and who owns a great
deal of real estate in Washington.
Vilas owns a house in Madison,
Wis., worth, I am told, about $50,
000. Vilas is worth about $250,000
himself, and will no doubt entertain
Secretary Manning, who started
life as a newsboy, has rented Banker
Bigelow's residence on P Street,
facing Blaine's big house and Dnpont
Circle. I suppose he pays $4,000 or
$5,000 a year for it. A good rent for
an ex-newsboy! isn't it? It is a
new, big. red brick, -with run
ning all over it It has stainei
glass windows, and a touch of the
liueen Anne is put here and there
into its architecture. TI12 first floor
has a dining-room opening on a
veranda, a small reception-room
and a parlor. The hall is wide, and
its stairway is after the sty la-of the
Tudors. Great rugs cover the floors,
and the hangings are rich but not
gaudy. The Secretary's library is
on the second floor, and into this
opens Mrs. Manning's boudoir. The
Secretary's sleeping-room is on tho
same floor. 1 1 is paid to be furnished
with antique things, lie sleeps in a
brass bedstead, and his 250 pounds
of avoirdupois lies upon plush-covered
mattresses under a silk and lace
bed-spread, hand painted. This
story recalls Tabor and his gorgeous
nightshirts. Washington Corre

Libeling the 1Vct.
The daughter of .a Boston mer
chant of great wealth, wide mer
cantile connections and boundless
hospitality, was lately married. The
Western agent of the merchant hap
pened to be in town, and, as the
proud father was inviting about
everybody tohis daughter's wedding,
he invited the Westerner too. The
Westerner came. He was uneasy,
and shifted about fiom place to
place in the house as if he were
hunting for spots that fitted him
better than those he had been in. It
seemed to be an occasion of great
and overwhelming novelty to him.
When the refreshments came around
he was inclined to fight shy of pretty
nearly everything. It was as if he
propo.-ed to take on a little Boston
formality, now that he was in Bos
ton, and require an introduction to
every dish. His host saw that he
wasn't eating much and came around
to see about it.
" Whv, you aren't eating anything,
Mr. West," said he. "Can't "I help
you to something?"
"No, I thank you," said the West
erner, "I ain't very hungry to-night.
I reckon I've eat enough."
Just then a waiter came along
with some croquettes.
"Mr. West, take one of these cro
quette?; I think you'll like them;
tak one, take one."
The Westerner too!: one. He
punched it with his fork, laid it open
a bit, and examined it ethically.
Then he tasted it and eclanned :

and it almost breaks my heart," was
the reply. "I kept him beyond the
