It la Quito Popular -with Senators and Congrsesmen. gUtosmon Who Own Their Oomo Ar» Conip»rntlvnlT Few—Many Live In HotoU and Quito a Number In ttonrdinc House*. [Special Washlnmnn Letter. 1 This city is not so much of a boarding ho«so as it usud to be. A RTeat many of our statesmen, particularly our senators, have purchased permanent residences; but still quite a number of them live at hotels. Senator Aldrich, oi Rhode Island; Senator Camden, of West Virginia; Senator J'kitt, o£ Conaectiout, and Senator Squire, of V'ashinffton, reside at the Arlington. Senator Camden and Senator Platt, not being possessed of a very great deal of this world's poods, have very modest apartments in this prominent hotel, at a moderate price; while Senators Aldrich and .Squire, both of them rich men, have magnificent apartments and live in bplcndid style. The hotel keepers arc all very anxious to secure the families of senators and representatives as their guests, becausu tin: presence of these political loaders in their hotels naturally draws custom to thorn. The many people who come to Washington for the purpose of having personal or political axes ground naturally want to call upon the senators from their state who can do them tin- most /rood; and of course when they unn afiorrt to <lo so they like to stop at the very hotel where their particular great man resides. This, of course, brings money into the purses of the Hur.ifaeos. The Hotel Kormandie has for Its guests four numbers of the senate, in the persons of Senators lilackburn, of Kentucky; Hill, of New York; JIuntou, of Virginia, and Smith, of New Jersey. The presence of those senators naturally brings a. great iH-al 'of custom to tiie liostelrie, because the pcopje from Kentucky, Kew Vork, Virginia' and J>ow .Ic-rsey, who desire to see their wnn.U>rs, go to the hotel where they reside, if they happen to have money enough to pay their way. Of course, nil visitors want to stop at Orst-class hotels in the- national capital if they can aft'ord to do so, and the prices aro really quite reasonable; *ut naturally the cheaper hotels catch a great many. Kor several months Senator Quay, of Pennsylvania, and Senator Hill, of New Vork, Initl apartments upon .the same floor at the Nonuandie; and they met there very frequently us near neighbors. It is n singular coincidence that the most successful politician in the republican party and the most sagacious politician in the democratic party were to neighborly and upon such apparently friendly terms, on the fame floor of the same hotel and occupying seats at tables which were contiguous in the same dining-room. The Metropolitan hotel has only three senators as Its guests during the present session of congress, but it _haa more representatives probably than any other hotel in the city. It is famous as a resort for southern statesmen. Senators Berry, of Arkansas; Ransom, of North Carolina, and Pasco, of Florida, reside at the Metropolitan, and so does Speaker Crisp! and the latter is a guest of a great deal more prominence indeed even than a senator. Quite a number of senators rosiflo in their own houses, and nearly all of them, through the social Influences of their wives and daughters, take a leading part in the society of the national capital. Senator Allison, of loiva, resides in his own house, but he is a widower without children, and hence does not give any entertainments in his own home, he goes out into society a great deal, however, and is as popular in the social as he is prominent in the political world. Senator Cameron, of Pennsylvania, has a splendid home of his own on La- A niSH-PBIOED DONKET. fayetto square within a long stone's throw of the white house. It is one of the oldest buildings in the city and formerly belonged to Commodore Rogers, of the navy, who purchased the lot originally from Henry Clay* and all that he paid for it was a fine Anda- lusian jackass. The story goes that Clay was very anxious to possess the animal, and that Commodore Rogers said that he would sell it for no other price than that particular lot. Clay said that he believed that the jackass was worth more than the lot of ground, and he very gladly made the exchange. That single lot would to-day bring at least 850,000 at auction, In spite ol the depressing condition of our business affairs at this time, Senator McMillan, of Michigan, one of the wealthiest men in the senate, la the owner of a splendid house on Vermont avenue, only three or four doors from the residence, of Senator Allison. The residence of Senator McMillan la one of the most beautifully and richly in the eltv. ind th* enter- tainments which are given there are like picnics in fairy land. The home of Senator Sherman, of Ohio, on K street, is one of the most valuable pieces of property in the city, and is furnished most elaborately, although the main object of the senator Beems to be in everything the furtherance of his own home comforts during the latter period of his life. He is, as is generally known throughout the country, not only one of our ablest financiers, in the sense that he understands the science of political economy so far as the government is concerned! but ho is also and always has been a great financier in the matter of the direction of his own business, and is many times a millionaire. It is a singular fact that the two senators from each state and the representatives from the various districts of each state i|o not seem to harmonize when they come to Washington. That is to say, it very seldom happens that the two senators from one state occupy contiguous seats in the senate, or that the representatives of any ono state select contiguous seats in the house of representatives. It is also a fnet that the two senators from one state never live together in the same hotel or in the same boarding house. The nearest approximation of harmony in any state delegation, .so far as surface indications are concerned, is to be found in the Iowa delegation at the Hotel Kormandio. Col. llendersone the oldest member in the house 'from Iowa, in point of continuous service, went to that hotel last August when TUB T.AKDLABTf'e'DAUOnTEB. the extraordinary session of congress convened, and he was followed there by Mr. Cousins, a new member from Iowa, and ono of the youngest men in the house of representatives from any state. -Senator Allison's private secretary, Joe Morgan, followed these two Iowa representatives to the same hostelry, and Congressman Hull, of Dea Jloines, came after them. Representative Gear, of the First Iowa district, went to the same place, but has since changed his location. In no other instance in the city have so many representatives from one state come tog-ether to reside under the same roof. A great many of the senatorial palaces have been deserted by their originators and builders, because of their retirement from public life. Senator Sawyer, the Wisconsin millionaire, lived but one year in his baronial stone castle, when his successor was elected, and Senator Sawyer went back to Oshkosh to live. Senator Hearst, of California, died before his term was completed, and his palace is now rented and occupied by another. Senator Palmer, of Michigan, left his senatorial palace to become minister to Spain, and lie has never since occupied it; but it is understood by his friends that he would be willing to take another terra in the senate if the people of Michigan should insist upon it. Senator Stanford, of California, one of the most benevolent of rich men. and ono of the most beloved in the memory of his friends, left his palace last summer, when he was called to one of tha mansions of the blest. But, despite the fact that the great men of our country are making homes for themselves in the national capital, there are very many who like boarding house life. It is not an uncommon thing lor fledffling ittatesmwn to become preoccupied with the charms and fascinations of the dr.njfhtur of the landlady of the boarding house. Every landlady has a daughter. _ I don't know how it happens, but it is a fact that every landlady lias a daufrh- ter. It is not always the case that the, daughter is beautiful, but she is young and attractive aud the boarders all lilio her. She goes to church, to the theater and to balls with the congressional boarder; and she usually works her way into some government position by judiciously smilinp and be- guiliER the statesman. That is the reason the District of Columbia has more than its quota of officeholders, while many of the sovereign states aro elamoring for favors for favorite sons and favorite daughters. It would probably be interesting to you to know something about the , houses which statesmen of the past i used to occupy and the entertainments which they pave, but that will be the subject of another letter. SMITH D. Fnv. A rsycliolofflcnl Experience. Professor—Did you ever have any psycholoffical experiences? Mrs. Eyeglass—Indeed 1 did—a most remarkable ono. "Prophetic?" "Yes." "I should greatly like to hear it. "Onenifrhtl dreamed that the sky suddenly blazed with light; the heavens were filled with a thronging host, a trumpet sounded, the dead rose from their graves, and then 6 voice shouted: •Something terrible is going to happen." "Well?" ' , "Well, the very next day out cook left,"—N. Y. Weekly. WHAT HE HAD CAUGHT. Thli Story May Be T»k*n with a Grata or More of Suit. The New York Sun prints an amusing tale, which the reader may receive with as many ounces of allowance as he thinks necessary. It is connected with the wreck of a circus train in a rather wild southern country. Many of the cages of the menagerie were broken, it appears, and their occupants had full opportunity to escape to the woods and fields. While all hands were waiting the arrival of a wrecking train, an old colored man, with a business look about him, approached the circus manager. "Boss," he said, "do 1 git anythin' if Icotch the girnfiee what got away last No giraffe got away," was the reply- Wai, I cotched sornethin' ober on TFED HIM TO A TUEE. my place dat must ha' pot away from soWbody. My ole woman done say it's a piraffee, but inebbe it's a elephant." "Our elephants are all here, bnt one of the camels is ffouo." "Mcbbe it's a camel. I nebber seed no camel. He ain't pot no winps nor nufiln'." "Does it look like a horse or a cow?" "So, sah. >fy boy Henry says it'* a 'nosceros, but 1'se a little suspicious dat it hain't." "We have no rhinoceros, but it may be our sacred bull from India." "Does yo' sae;x-d ball fi-rowl like a dawg an' show his teef?" "So." "Does he walk roun 1 a niffg-er's cab- In, an' take a dawfj by de neck an' shako do life outen him, an' roar an' roar?" "No. It must be ono of our lions! You don't mean to say you have captured a lion?" "Can't say, b-.iss. It's somethin 1 dat growls an' roars an' switches his tall. Him didn't wantor como along, but I jest tied ar<>r>u roun' his neck an 1 made him. He's tied up to dat tree ober dere, an' I reckon yo' oughter pimme 'bout two bits for my tremble." The circus hands wont up the road with the oM man, and about a i;u-rter of a mile uw.iy, tied to a persimmon tree aud looking much disgusted, was the biffg-est lion of the menagerie. "Dunno if it's an elephant or a 'nos- oeros or a tfiraft'ce." said the colored man, as he went up and began loosening the rope, "but yore he am, an'bein' as he killed iny d'nwp, an' beiu' as I had tor drag- him all de way ober, mebbe you'll make it fo' bits," "Man alive!" gasped the manager, as ho handed the uejjro a silver doilar. "Didn't you know this was a lion?" "No. Nebber done knowfid what he was. Just pot a rope an' made him come along 1 ; an' when he prowled an' roared I hammered him wid dis stick. Much oblecged, sab..' 1 On Fnr,i<lc. It was a great day in the driving park, and there had never been a liner display of wealth on wheels seen in that focality, and a man had come out to see what it all meant. H was plain he had never seen a carriage parade before. After a bit ho turned to one of the prcat mass of spectators. "What is it?" he inquired, nodding toward a porgeous pageant "It's a carriage parade of our most fashionable classes," was the reply. "Oh," said the mnn, "it's a kind of a parade of the unemployed, is it?" The other one. looked curiously at the man. "That's all right," said the man, as if he kriaw what he wai talking- about, and he walked away.—Detroit Free Press. —Before 1840 there were in Paris and other trades organizations of -wiredrawers, thiinble-makors, button-makers, weight-innkers, boll-founders, eow- pass-makors and modelers who mada patterns and molds for founding. —As Qood~»s~~Ueaa.—nc—-wnars this terrible thing- I hoar?
