(Copyright. 1SS, by the Associated Fress.) LONDON. An?. 2?. The past week has been a social blank. livery one of Impor tance, who is" not enjoying a visit to the resorts of the continent. Is either shooting grouse on the moors, deer stalking on the hills, or preparing for the partridge shoot ing, vhlrh opens Sept. 1. London is bereft ot royalty and the members of the royal family will remain scattered until the re union at Hal moral, early in October, to wel come the Czar and Czarina. The Queen starts, on Tuesday, for lialmoral. The visit of the Czar and Czarina to England is a family affair, but. nevertheless, it is no se cret that the Marquis of Salisbury's visit to Osborne, on Wednesday last, was duo to the anxiety of the Queen to be fully posted on the foreign olftcers' views as to the Anglo-Hussian policy, so as not to make any mistake in the event of the Czar's con versation trenching upon high politics. One of the topics of conversation is the melodramatic rupture of Sir Robert Peel's week-old engagement to Klla, daughter of Lord Ashton. It has set the tongue of so ciety wagging rapidly and has called for the publication in the Dally News, of which Lord Ashton is part owner, of u statement announcing that the engagement was un authorized and that there is not the remot est possibility of such a marriage taking place. It is now reported that the rupture was cauftd by the llancee's receipt of a letter from a lady, who whs a friend of Mrs. Langtry and Abingdon Ualrd. The your.g lady. It appears, showed this letter to hor father, and the latter promptly gave Sir Robert 1'eel. who was staying at Rye lands. Ids conge. The lovers fir.-t met a month ago and It was a case of love at tlrst slKht. Ulr Rol-rt l'eel Invited Lady Ashton and Miss Klla to Drayton, and on the third day of their visit he proposed and was accepted. Lord Ashton consented to the engagement and promised to supple ment iir RolnTt Peel's Income of JL'.".mu by giving hi daughter XIlo.iv.ij per annum. The discussion of the rumorof the possi ble marriage of Mr. Waldorf' Astor to Prin cess Victoria of Wales, has been reopened by a leading society Journal, which regards the match as quite possible, saying It will give the greatest satisfaction to all intelli gent people in the English-speaking world, adding: "There has been more than one royal marriage In Europe during the past few years which was not so promising as would Ikj the marriage of the daughter of a future king to a man of good physical attribute:?, moral commercial character, nnd who. under such circumstances, would .speedily bo promoted toa dukedom." A paragraph, which Is read In a variety of wavH, Is in circulation here to the effect that the Prince of Wales Is recovering his old spirits nnd i. resuming many of his earlier ways. The widest Interest is taken here in the nuptials of Jean de Rclzke, who Is to be married to the Counters De Mallly Ncsle. Doth the lady and famous tenor are Cath olics and tkey cannot marry after the bit ter's divorce frorr her husband except by a dispensation from the Pope. It is be lieved this will be obtained and the wed ding is likely to tak place on his estate, in Poland, in the early part of October. It is also understood that the tenor will abandon the stage In The first prize of :u.000 of the Paris exposition lottery wan won by a man named Jonvel, a rag merchant of Dunkerquc.

SPORTS OF LAW MAKERS HOW STATUS 31 E X AM) DIPLOMATICS PASS HAPPY HOURS AWAY, Poker Lends, Horses Next and Wheels LurKely Popular Olney In Flun neli Plays Tennis. Washington Letter In Ronton Transcript. That Garret A. Hobart has taken to play ing golf is regarded in Washington as scarcely good form for a vice presidential nominee. Fishing has come by precedent to be regarded as the sport proper to the exec utive branch of the government, and this is the especial privilege o: the President only. A Vice President re illy has no au thority of assuming he Is. sufficiently on earth to engage In any sport. If Hobart persists In golf and by good luck achieves tho vice presidency, he may make my words Inspired both by a. knowledge of Rolf and the disintegrating: effects of his office upon a man; inside of three months he will Una himself "fozzling" every ball he at tempts to strike, and before hx has teen Vice President half a year he will play such a wretched game he will not be. able to find a single fself-respcctlns "caddie" wil ling to carry I. is clubs and make his tees. It is painful to witness how the otllce has undone the man in the absence of Vic President Stevenson. When he entered upon his duties at Washington, he was an extraordinarily fine specimen of vigorous manhood, tall, sturdy impressive by reason of his size and the strength of his form and bearing suggested. I saw him at Cape May tho past month, and observed, as I had not before, the decrepit figure he has become. He looks shmnken in body, walks with un uncertain step, apparently fre of his size and the strength his form daughter; his face is stamped by apathy, as if the effect of sitting in solitary Judgment upon Senator Jones's silver speeches were written upon him in indelible characters of everlasting ennui, and altogether he is dis mal evidence of how the strong parts of a man atrophy in the vice presidential chair." It may be that mild athletics might help all this, and that Hobart has taken to golf with tho clear intention of training for his office. All snorts go hand in hand with politics at Washington. None are tabooed except pugilism; but, as everybody knows, in spito of the fact that the last Congress passed stringent laws against prize lighting, any man who has genuine love for this sort of thing has only to be elected to Congress to get his till in the House of Representa tives. ifeing a woman, I of course do not know charly what does and does not come under the head of spjrts, but whether it be rele vant or in any sense proper right here, 1 may say that ioker is probably the most generally esteemed means of diverting great minds from the burden of affairs of state at the capital. I called on a promi nent Senator recently and in the room at his hotel, which answers both as his otflce and parlor. I was edified to behold resting on a pile of Congressional liecords an outllt of gamblers' hats you know the shades for the eyes worn under the light during all night games and the mantel was prettily decorated with seductive shades of chips. WATSON PLAYS CRArS. Tom Watson, I am told, delights in "craps," which he plays in harmony with his severe conscience by making it his in variable custom to give his winnings to tha poor, who always win in his game, for when he loses he further impoverishes him self by making a donation to charity of the figure of his loss, llryan has no love for any game. He would "wear a crown of thorns and die upen a cross of gold" rather than play cards. He looks upon horse rac Ing as ungodly, and it is said that while he was in Congress, on the day the Drcoklyn handicap or the Suburban was run, he and Railey of Texas used to go hand in hand from the floor of the House inlo a deserted committee room and weep and pray for the regene ration of Congress. On the days the;e great racing events take place Congress practically suspends business and the mem bers of both houses leave their country and their constituents to Providence. Sen ator Stewart will even stop talking silver to hang over the telegraph Instruments in the galleries and in the corridors of the capitol to learn how tb race is going, and whether the "air tight tip" they have play ed Is a winner after all. Since the depart ure of Rryan from Congress, on these occa sions llalley of Texas weeps and prays alone. Ignorant of his scruples and know ing he formerly owned a valua ble string of horses. I asked Mr. Halley at the beginning of th rate season this spring what his horses would do. "I don't know." he replied. "I own a hundred hordes, every one having a splendid record, but when 1 came to Con gress I turned them all over to a friend and have had absolutely nothing to.do with t.:em since. "Horse racing may bo, and In many cases Is, a leRltlmate sport for honest men. but It has. unfortunutely, become so general1" Identified with pool selling and with black log that I feel it a duty 1 owe my constit uents to preserve the fame of their repre sentatives In Congress free from any asso ciation whatsoever with the sport." I do not know another man In Congress who adheres to this racing policy, and I do know a number who are anient and nem-rous adherents of the turf. Tho very Senate chamber has been, as you may re call, the scene of a famous turf transac tion. It was there that Senator Stanford sold Hell Hoy. the noted Palo Alto sire, to Senator Htockbrldge for HS.ooo, and then tried to buy him back for Senator Stewart Is the richest In horse flesh of nny man In Congress. His string Includes twenty trotters In the '20 class, besides a hundred odd cracks which ho has stalled In royal ntyle nt a farm he has lately purchased In Virginia, within easy reach of Washington. Senator Allen Is a breeder of hordes and owns a number very famous In the West. Last winter Senator Murphy presented him with a valuable colt of celebrated parentage nnd great speed, which the Nebraska Senator christened "Senator Murphy," thus further Interweav ing the glory of the Senate and the turf. Senator Wetmoro and Senator Wolcott nru members of the Washington Jockey Club, that reorganized lho past spring for tho purpose of elevating the turf and redeem ing Washington from the Iniquity of pool nelllng to practice the more expensive Brit ish sysietn of "batting on the nod." Sen ator McMillan, Sftiator Hill nnd Senator Murphy are all fond of fat hordes, mid Senator Jtlackburn, it goes without paying, regnrds the American thoroughbred us an Institution It would bo disloyal not to lov m.d trve. Lovr.s fast nonsi:s. In the House, Congressman Owens, who succeeded "Willie" Rrecklnrldge. Congm man CJrout of Vermont and Congressman Walker of Massachusetts are most conspic uously known in connection with fast horses, but ntiothrr Congressman, whoso name it is not within the malice of woman to mention. furnishes the rarest Instanco I have ever known of how absorbing a man's pulsion for horses may became. "They tell me you are fond of horses," I said. "Yes." ho answered with a sigh, which mournfully suggested the vanity of being fond Of everything. "Yes," he said, "my horses and my books are ull I have." Across the room .-at hiti wlfo and baby, but then, they only went to show what vonun and babies amount to In the expe rience of a truly great Congressman. Perhaps it's more wicked to race horses than to play tennis, but to my mind horse raclii or even poker-playing is .oinehow u great deal more compatible with the virile character cue loves In fancy to ascribe to a statesman than playing tennis. I never pee Secretary Olney clad in white flannels, racquet in hand, distinguishing himself on a tennis court, that he dos not appear to me much too nice and pretty to dig in the dry dust of internatlcnM affairs. Sir Juliun Puuncefote. in his hours of ease, fences, an exorcise that Is in esthetic accordance witn a dip.omat' duty, though the ponderous form of the ambassador must make U a bit dlltlcult. Oddly enough, devoted as Englishmen commonly are to riding and hunting, not a man at the Rrltish embassy ever rides or hunts at Washington. Not one of their names adorns the very exclu sive list of members of the Chevy Chase Hunt Club, though every other embassy and tho mere important legations are reire euud there. Hush O'Lltrna, fcecreiary of the Rrltish embassv, is one of the champion steeplechasers of Europe. Rut no one has ever seen him in the saddle In or about Washington. Postmaster General Wilson not only rides a bicycle, but has been so pub lcly Identlrkd with the sport as to have 1 en one of tho judges who reviewed the mammoth bicycle parade that was an event of the recent Christian Endeavor convention. This be came the occasion of placing the Cleveland administration on record on the vexed bloomer question In ?o far as the Postmaster-General represents the administra tion, for on this occasion the iirst lady's prize was awarded to a fair cyclist who wore white silk bloomers, and I have never heard that Mr. Wilson entered a dissenting opinion to a minority report. Everybody says that Thomas Brackett Reed is a bicycle enthusiast, but as noliody I as ever seen him on a wheel. I think my self the rumor grew out of the glory of his summer clothes. With the llrst spell of hot weather Reed dons a negligee shirt and coat and trousers of Kentucky grass cloth, which, with a leather belt and vivid tie, nuggest a nature susceptible to knicker bockers, golf stockings and other parade features of the whee. Cannon of Illinois does ride a bicycle, as every one who has entered his committee room at the capl- tol the past season has learned to his sor row. DEVOTED TO HIS WHEEL. With that blind and unreasonable devo tion to hla machine which prompts a- true cyclist to break his neck rather than let his machine come to harm. Cannon, at the rlk of the necks of all his friends, insists on storing his wheel in his committee room, where they do say the thing acts like a. fiend incarnate, falling against everybody who enters Into Its diabolical presence, and by its general behavior causing so much profanity and other evil as In itself to war- rant( theigxlfftence of Charlotte Smith's arti-bicyejp league, independent of bloom ers, promiscuous flirtations and all else that is urged against the bicycle as an im moral agent. There is scarcely a man among the diplo matic corps who does not ride a wheel. I have known an embassador to make a round of state calls on his bicycle. The gorgeousnets of the attire of some of tho diplomatic cyclists Is wonderful to behold. I saw the secretary of the Russian legation at tho train tUe other day, bidding some friends good-bye. He had come down on his wheel and was dazzling in a suit of Russian crash with white canvas leggings and a white Tarn o'Shanter cap. A ragged small boy stood peering at him througn the grat ing of the gate opening into the street, and finally called out what, undefined, must have been in the mlndxjf any one beholding him: "Say, mister, does yer mamma know yer out In dem nice white clothes? Alne ye r'frald the dirty carsil spoil. 'em?" Doubtless the worst guyed cyclist In town 1.. .Mr. Chung, of the Chinese lega tion. Clad in all the glory of his silken. Celestial, varl-colored attire, he goes scorching along the streets, his queue streaming behind, his "angel" sleeves In flated like balloons on either side, and bis flowing Fklrts fluttering on the breeze, the whole picture .is uncannily grotesque as I always lind the effect of English speech proceeding from the Incongruous body of this same small Chinaman. He is a gradu ate of Yale, a member of the D. K. H. fraternity, and not only speaks English perfectly, but thinks English. The hint of our modern nnd familiar civilization he ex hibits in conversation contrasted with the antiquity, the strangeness of his native civilization apparent in his dress, ami the unutterable calm of his Chinese face, is as if the stone image of Rudeiia on my writ ing table asked after my health and ex pressed an intelligent, up-to-dute opinion on the merits of different makes of bicy cles. In riding his wheel Mr. Chung's skirts must cause him to take a deep in terest In the bicycle dress problem of wom en. Rut I saw him not long ago solve a woman's dress problem In a way to sug gest that, with all htr progression, the twentieth century American woman is still very far short of the resources of a man, even of a Chinaman. I happened to be in an open street car with Mr. Chung during a severe wind and rain storm. The Moor of the car was flooded, and every woman of us struggled to keep our petticoats out of the water. In the same manner, for a while Mr. Chung struggled to preserve his silk skirts dry, and then what do you sup pose he did to make every woman envy him? He gathered his skirts up on either side and tucked them into the pockets of his trousers underneath. HOME-COMING OF FOLKS.
