Washimstan, -May 28 Whila the
Kirmrsi, or the Dnca of Nations, as it
.IscxUad, was probably the grandest
social 'entertainment that has evfr
taken plies In Waatunateo. it devel
oped in a striking degree how fir char
ity is ofpaeretenad to proeare money
for wottby object'. While I do not
deeire to unduly criticise the manage
ment ot cnarity entertainments In
Washington, yet there are always cer
tain leaturea connected witn (bees to
ciety attractions which are not in any
degree commendable. - That the la
dies who encouraged aad carried to
eucb sacsesffal completion the grand
event we witnessed here for two nigbti
and one matinee, which netted the
bandaometum of 13600 for the Na
tiooal Homeopathic Hospital, are en
titled to great credit, goes without sv
ing. Yet all the credit is not theirs.
"Without the co-operation ot those
who gave thiirtime and service to
insure the so cess of the magnificent
sptctaclethe (tl jrtsol the lady man

mike the suggestion that hereafter on
similar occasions tbe participants be
allowed more free privileges tban were
gran'ed st the Kirmess. I speak of
the absurd charges made for checking
cats, coats, wraps and umbrellas, and
the (till moie senseless and unnec
essary x action of 5 cents for
a glass of water. Those who
were not inclined to submit to tbis
extortion, were obl'ged to borrow
glasses and go outside of tbe theater
to procure it I think that some pro
vision should have been made for fur
nishing this necefssry article which
costs nothing, for those who have not
only given their time and labor, but
each of whom paid for the hire of
their cos'umes, and wsre alto obi 'Bed
to pay 1 for taking part in tbe Kir
mess, so tbe cost to each partic'paot
therefore could not have been less
than $5. Considerable dissatisfaction
is expressed by those who were com
pelled to yield to this exaction, and it
would saem that the btat way to in
sure success of a repetition of the
Kirmess, or a similar entertainment in
the future, wonld be for the manage
ment to pay for all expenses, and thus
keep on goad terms with tbe people
upon whom they . depend to make
their social undertakings a success.
In the Henate tbe terms of twenty
five Bens tors will expire on the 4.h of
March next. A few have been re
elected, some are certain of re-election,
and many will be succeeded by party
rivals or political opponents. Senator
Hearst of California will be succeeded
by a Republican, as the legislative
elections this year are certain to go
against the Democrats. At this time
Congressman Fulton, the fa a Fran
cisco millionaire, is spoken of as tbe
moat formidable candidate.
Speaker Carlisle is quoted as saying
that it is "possible for Congress to ad
journ by the 25tb of June" that is, in
lees tban four weeks. The prevailing
opinion, however, is that Cong' ess
will not set away before July 15tb.
The House is behind in its busines?,
and, independent of the grave differ
ences of opinion between the Senate
and IIooss on the appropriation bills.
there are several questions of import
ance to be considered. Besides, there
- is an evident deeire on tbe part of the
8enate not to hurry businefs, and
both parties want time to make records
- for the approaching Congressional can
vass. Toe tariff will not be considered
at this season.
Last week Mr. Ferry Belmont gave
his first entertainment of tbe season
and dined tbe Comm'ttees on For.
eign Affairs of the Senate and House.
Every one supposed when Mr. Bel
mont was made Chairman of the
House Committee on Fore ga Affairs,
he would neceesarily entertain largelv,
but such has not been the case. Ha
lives very quietly by himself in a
. apaoiou house on the corner of Rhode
Island avenue and 8evei.tee.nth street.
He lives in a corner of it like an oys
' ter in his shell. He is surrounded
' with a good workinglibrary, where he
works incessantly grappling the prob
lems which come before the commit
tee, and attentively watching the In
terests of his constituents. The only
occupants oi tne noose wun mm are
his private teoretiry and the butler.
Miss Rose Elizabeth Oevland, sis

Washington is the only city to-day
' of its 8zs In Amsrica, where a man is
unable to procure a shave on Sunday
in a barber shop. In the Criminal
Co art recently, Judge Mo Arthur de
cided that Sunday shaving was illejta'.
An exception waa taken and the ca?e
will be canied tr the General Term.
The traffic in the sale ot flowers in
Washington is growing every year. I
have often wondered where all these
fbwera cima from, and the past week
-1 have visited every prominent floral
establishment in toe city, some of
which are very elaborate. Every
dea'er expresses himself as entirely
aitisfied with the business .of tbe
season, and have all they can do and
are rushed from moroing to night.
They supply dinner parties, recep
tions, weddings, funerals, sad in short
the aitistio hand of tbe fforist is s?en
at every entertainment. The renting
of potted plants fir an evening's enter
tainment is a part ef the Dusiness
which pays; while for $50 one ran

to the tiori-t is the dear young

ot 8ndirg flowers to bis sweet

also good customers, and it is not in-
ireqaent tnat ago bouquet is banded
over the footlights to some favorite
actress from this source. The greater
porn on oi ine nawers are raised in tbe
vicinity of Washington, wbile aome
come from New York and Philadel
phia. 'J here are no more rich peo
ple here willing to spend tbeir money
in entertaining than during any other
previous administration. There is a
general ra ly among society people,
end pretty social events are occurring
ad tbe time, which of course means a
more lavish consumption of flowers
snd a consequent increase in the rev

Assistant Secrvta-y of tbe Interior
Jeaks, who has sent bis resignation to
tbe President, is a unique man in his
way. Some years ago there lived near
hie home an old bachelor, a man of
considerable we-ltb, named Paul
Darling. Judge Jenks had been for
Tfarj his taide. nbilcsonhe. and
friend; not only in legal matters, bat
in other affairs. Finally Darling be
came senouBiy in, and it waa found
that only a few honis inteivened be
tween him and the time when he
would be cal'ed away. He hastily
sent for a nearby lawyer to draw up
hia last will and testameot. He be
queathed tbe sum of 1300X00 to vari
ous relativee, and desired that tbe res
idua or tne estate, if any, be divided
among cena'n charitable institutions.
Ths lawyer informed him that the law
of tbe State made null and void
any oequeets to clwltable or
becevolent institutions made less
tban thirty days be'ore the
death of the tsta!or. "Well then."
sa'd Dailicg, "Leave tbe residue to
George Jenks. He would do with tbe
money pretty much aa I would do
with i'." When lbs estate was settled
np the residue amounted to f ICO.OOO.
Tnis was turned over to Jenks. With
a rara conscientiousness that far sur
passed any ordinary principle of honor,
he never devoted one cent of tbis
money to his own use, but divided it
smong sncb charitable institutions as

Declare the Necessity for Re-

The Re7. Dr. Daniel Currv of New
York, in a debate In the Church Con
gress at Cleveland upon "The Present
Necessity for a Restatement of Chris
tian Beliefs," read a pnuer that at
tracted a great deal of a'tention, in
which he says: "It U manifest that
the present age is a time of changes
in the fotni of Christian tbnueht and
of modifications of doctrinal concep
tions The formulas of doctrine which
have come down to us from the past,
although so pivcioua to those by
whom they were once cherished, no
longer satisfactorily express the theo
logical conceptions of the best minds
of Christendom. Although it has
become fashionable to certain circles
to speak light y of theology and to pre
fer the sentimental and the practical
in religion to the speculative and in
tellectual, It is i-till certain that Chris
tianity as manifested m its human
subject must be, first of all, a system
ol truths to be accepted respecting
ii ,d's purposes toward men, and His
methods for working out his designs
in and among them. The changes
that are so str ngly marked in thu ie

Nashville Banner: Ex-Gov. John C.
Brown says Judge East would make
the most fcrmidable Itepublii an can
didate for Governor in Tennessee, but
he thinks the Judae would be badly
beaten if the Democrats nominate the
right man. He says all the Demo
cratic gentlemen u scussed for the
Governorship are good men, snd if
there is any choice among them the
best one of the lot should be chosen.
This is putting it very guardedly and
lacks the virtue of being in the
nature of information. What the
Democrats want to know, or rather
what they should want to know, is
which one of the many candidates is
tne best man tor the nomination If
Ex-Qov. Brown, who is well informed
concerning public men in Tennessee,
and who is, we think, a pretty good
judge of men, would be as positive in
his expressions concerning the Demo
cratic candidates as he is concerning the
Kepub lean candidates he might as
sist in solving the Democratic prob
lem and helping along tbo Iiarmoni
con performance. The opinions of
public men on such matters are very
interest ng when there is any d-finite-
ne-s to the opinion. We think uov.
Brown is right in saving that JihIl'C
