Washinotok, Nov. 3, 1884.
It is an odd fact that the best sign of the
approach of the gay season in Washington
is noticed at the auction sales. These com
petitive entertainments are very popular in
this city and draw big crowds. They are
especially diverting to certain classes of
women who love a bargain as much as they
do a bonnet, but they are also a Bource of
excitement and interest to the very larga
number of people here, who eke out an in
come by renting rooms, or tak:ng boarders.
There is hardly a parallel ia any other city
of the country to this, in this respect. A,
reasonable estimate would say that at least
half of tho domiciles of Washington are oc
cupied by more than one family. The
principle reason for this is found in the fact
that incomes are usually small, A clerk
with a salary of $1,000, $1,300 or $1,400
and an increasing family, cannot afford to
rent a good house for their exclusive use.
fie solves the problem of how to live well
on a small income, by sub-letting apart
ments in a Urge house the rent of which he
assumes, but reduces in this way very often
so that his living rooms cost but a nominal
sum. The unmarried clerks and clerkesees,
and young couples, and visitors for "the
season," make up his tenants. Now, as
winter approaches and the city fills up with
people, the vacant houses are taken and the
customers. One would think that some
time the second hand furniture would fail
to materialize and spread itself over the
large store rooms, and out into the street
and half wy up and down the block, as is
the case on auction days here; but it is al
ways there. The half-worn carpets and
chairs, the faded settees and sofas, rheu
matic tables and blase bric-a-brac, all elo
quently dumb about the things and events
with which they have been associated, are
on hand, and aro eagerly bought and carted
off to commence life over again in a sort of
a way. It is wonderful where it all comes
from, bat it is a good illustration of how
changeable an offico holding community is.
There is an opportunity for an imagineative
writer to trace the career of furniture from
a cabinet minister's to Dinah's front parlor
if he wants to. Such mutability: apper
tains to Washington curious. But the sub
ject is left for the romancer, with the asser
tion that the movement of old furniturt is
tho first sign of the coming gay season.
The second or short session of congress
is usually an important one. It meets in
December, a Urge slice is cut out for the
holidays, and it expires March 4th. This
leaves little chance for active business and
besides tho houso is practically disorgan
ized. Those who have been defeated for
the new term do not care to work. Their
interest is dead. Those who are re-elected
are busy with schemes for getting better
committee placet, and eo the session is
usually a trifling one, The laxity which
prevails is, however, taken advantage of by
the lobbyists. There are more steals car
ried through and mors bad legislation is en
acted. The salary grabs and special grants
of all kinds, hove all passed on the ere of
an expiring congress. It always happens
when tho dominant party is overthrown in
congress, that tne soreheads signalize
their retirement to private life by gouging
something from tho treasury, This soothes
the pangs of defeat and eases the pain
which attends the overthrow of their am
feccret of Micccua.
