Washikoton, Feb. 17, 1902.
Aab Wednesday brought to a close
one of the gayest seasons Washington
hat known in many year. Since that
date comparatively small and informal
entertainmcn's have replaced the
brilliant functions of the earlier season
but today everyone is on the qui Vive in
anticipation of the histrionic perfor
mance which will present to an ultra-
fashionable audience the Bower of the
capital' debutautet and dame in
theatricala and tableaux. Fabolous
prices have been paid for boxes and
the long Mat of patronesses, which it
headed by Mra. Rooeevelt'a name and
includes those of the leaders of society,
insure a gratifying success.
The feature of the entertainment will
be the presentation of "The Reward of
Amaryllis," written by Mrs. Kurton
Harrison, with Miss Jennie Pearce, of
Boston, in the leading role. Mrs.
Uarrison has come to Washington to
direct the presentation. The proceeds
will, of course, be devoted to charity.
Another notable event in the interest
of cbarily of equal social Importance
will be the lecture on the evening of
February 20th, on "Klnf Lear" by Dr.
D. J. Stafford, the famous Shakespear
ian interpreter who sacrificed what
would have been a brilliant histrionic
career to enter the Koman Catholic
priesthood. Mrs. Roosevelt's name also
heads the list of patronesses for this
The news that the Italian Ambassador
aud gignora des Planches will soon
occupy the handsome residence recently
purchased by Mrs. Phoebe '.. Hearst,
is greeted most cordially by society.
The Hearst borne is one of the most
beautiful residences in the city and, as
the ambassador ia fond of euterUining
and is already a favorite, it is anticl
patec that bis new borne will prove
another of those charming rendezvous
for which Wauhington is famous. The
former Ambassador, Baron de Fava,
usually resided in New York.
To satisfy a general curiosity as to the
costume which will be worn by
the American representatives at the
coronation of Kdward VII, I have ascer
tained at the slate department that it
will consist of ordinary evening dress,
except that knee breeches and black
silk stockings will be worn in lieu of
trousers. This costume was agreed
upon many years ago in a conference
between the state department aud the
British Foreign office court. The
Americans will be the only persons so
attired, all others not in uniform being
required to appear iu court dress with
cocked hat, sword, etc. The United
Slates' naval and army officers will, ol
course, wear full uulfotni.
Since the passage, by the bouse of
representatives, of the majority auti-
oleomargarine bill no legislation of
importance has been undertaken by that
body ; but today tbo repeal of the war
revenue taxes will be taken up. Much
interest centers in the ways and menus
committee which will take up the ques'
tlon ol Cuban reciprocity today. 1 saw
Chairman Payne this morning but could
elicit from bim only the fact that the
committee would see what it could do
without injury to American interests."
There is no doubt that a majority of the
committee is opposed to granting any
concessions, on principle, but the
pressure from the White House and
from the senate end olflie capitol is so
strong that tome measure will probably
The Philippines bill Is still under con
sideration in the senate and some lime
has been devoted to the permanent
census bill. The former, and possibly
the latter, will probably be disposed ol
The president is again at the White
Houte and ia completing bis verdict in
the Schley case which will probably be
made public soon.
A vigorout effort is being made in the
house of representative! to secure the
passage of a bill providing for a depart
ment of mines and mining and Kepre
sentative S. D. Woods, of California, the
utbor of the bill, ia leaving no stone
unturned to secure that end. The
measure providing for the establishment
of a department of commerce and labor
seems likely to pass the present session
and makes Mr. Woods all the more cer
tain that he can secure the present
passage of his bill. Speaking on th
subject today he said, "There is every
reason why the government should
recogniie the importance of this In
dustry by establishing a department to
represent it with a cabinet officer at its
bead. The mining interests of the
ountry produced wealth in lh9 to
the siuoant of $'J76,UQO,000. Is that not
reason enough in itself why (here should
be a department to represent these
gigantic interests? Again there are
buhdredt of thousands of men employed
in the mines of the country. Their
interests should be safeguarded as only
department of the government can
guard them. We have a department
of agricultute to watch over and pro
tect the interests of Ihe farmers, to in
vestigate improved methods, to deter
mine what are worthy of adoption and
what are not, and so save the farmers
themselves millions of dollars. Ibis
department further investigates foreign
markets. Why should not the mining
interests have all these helps and safe
guards? Tbey deserve them. They
contribute millions to the wealth of the
country and they deserve recognition
and the greatest possible protection that
the government can afford them. The
addition of an immense area ol new
territory in the Philippines, Porto Rico,
etc , all ol it doubtless rich In mineral
wealth, is so added reason lor the es
tablishment ol such a department."
Because of the apparently widely
entertained opinion that the oleomar
garine bill reported by the minority of
the bouse committee on; agriculture and
championed by Representative Wads-
worth, waa inimical to the dairy in
terests, I called on the latter yesterday
and requested him to explain the situa
tion from his standpoint.
"My position," said Mr. Wadtworth,
"is that the minority bill would have
proved more efficacious in Ihe preven
tion of the fraudulent sale of oleomar
garine and that it waa an infinitely more
just, less inquisitorial and less per
nicious form of legislation. The
minority bill would have accomplished
every purpose and would have been
free from the legitimate criticism which
will be applied to tbe majority measure"
'I am a butter maker myself," con
tinued Mr. Wadtworth, "and part owner
in two creameries and my constituents
are largely dairymen but I have no fear
of going before them on this issue and,
hsn tbey understand tbe provisions
of the two billt I am confident that
they will approve of my course.

Grexnd Scenery of Shasta Route.
In toing over the famous "Shasta
Route" of the Southern Pacific Co. the
traveler ever finds something new to
excite his admiration and interest'
Starting at Portland, oue traverses the
whole length of the Willamette Valley,
the gem of the Northwest. Mt. Hood,
Mt. Jefferson, and the Three Sisters and
other snow-capped peak are kept in
sight for bourt. The beautiful valleys
ol the Umpqua and Rogue Rivers, with
their orchards of prunes, peaches, apples,
and othsr fruits are a delight in them
selves. The crossing of the great mount
ain barrier between Oregon and Calif
ornia reveala the grandest mountain sce
nery in the United States. The wonderful
turnings, twistings, and doublings of the
railroad bring into view a grand array of
towering mountains and profound gorges
into wbich we gaxe fioin diir.y heights,
forest clad mountain slopes stretching
up to the line of perpetual snow, and
the foaming mountain streams dashing
fiercely down deep canyons, now and
then stopping for a short rest in tome
quiet pool. After a day's enjoyment of
old Mt, Shasta, the finest peak on the
continent, we drop rapidly down the
canyon of Ihe Sacramento to the broad
plsias of the Sacramento Valley In Cal
ifornia, and thence through vineyards
and orchards to San Francisco.

, A Quaker's Temperance
Heveral persons, among them a Quak
er, were crossing the Alleghany moun
tains in a stsge.
A lively discussion arose on the sub-
left of temperance and tbe liquor

severely bsndled. One of the company
remained silent. After enduring it as
long at ha could he said : "Gentlemen,
I want you to understand that I am a
liquor dealer. I keep a public boose,
but I would have yon to know that I
bare a license, and keep a decent house.
I don't keep loafers and loungers about
my place, and when a man hat enough

"Friend, that is the most damnable
part of thy business. If thee would tell
to drunkards and loalera, thee would
help to kill off the race, and society
would be rid of them. But thee taket
the young, tbe poor, the innocent and

and loafers of tbem. When their char
