The Herald this morning is issued from its newly occupied and commodious building, Eleventh and E streets northwest. This is a business Congress, but it does not seem to be able to do its work in business hours. It has to work nights and Sundays. . The weather is likely to grow warmer before Wednesday. Still it is safe to say it the mer cury is at 90 on that day a good many Repub lican Congressmen will find it cold enough for them. The Eepublicaus of the House have decided they will not Are out any more Democrats this session. If they had come to this conclusiou earlier 'fewer of them might now be hunting around for a job against the 4th of March. If the scientists of the National Museum want to add a feature totheirgrand old curiosity shop which will astonish posterity more than the totem-poles of Alaska, they should secure a collection of the weather of the last ten days. Edward Bellamy's paper, the New Nation, sa3s that the number of members of the next House of Representatives who look with favor on national ownership of railroads is large enough to hold the balance of power in certain contingencies. This is highly interesting. Governor Hill, of New York, is credited by his admirers with the cunning of the fox or the ferret in political manipulation, but he does not display the wisdom of the serpent when he emerges above his local horizon into the broad field of national or interstate affairs. The con troversy into which he plunged with Governor Bulkeley, of Connecticut, over the extradition of a Connecticut offender who took refuge in New York was of questionable wisdom; but Gover nor Hill's course at once became dignified and statesmanlike in the light of Bulkeler's flip pant and contemptible letter in reply, offering to release the two" hundred con victs in Connecticut prisons and turn them loose in New York. The people of Connecticut can't yet their "hold-over" Governor out of office soon enough for their own good. Death has played fast and loose with the members of the Fifty-first Congress, striking down right and left with a ruthless hand. The Senate tho past week wascalledonto mourn the loss of two of its most respected and eminent members, Senator Wilson, of Maryland, and Senator Hearst, of California. Senator Wil son's death was sudden and unexpected, and ceiiic as a great shock. Senator Hearst had for some weeks been in a condition that gave his friends no hope for his " re covery, but his demise last night brought with it no less sorrow on that account. He was a man who was beloved and respected by all whokucw him, and served his State and the country faithfully and well in the Senate. A man of great wealth, he was charitable ac cording to his splendid meanB, and leaves be hind him a memory which will long be kept green in the hearts of those whom he be friended, There is no man on the Republican side of the House who can get up a more torrJd and turbulent case of indignation over the alleged unfair election methods in tho South than tho somewhat flamboyant Mr. Boutelle, of Maine Ho still waves the bloody shirt on occasions with a vigor and venom that seriously Imperil theiatcgrity of the rotten garment and pro claims himself with thunder-toned vehemence in favor of a free ballot and a fair-count in tho South. Mr. Boutelle seems, however, to be blessed with an adjustlblo Yankee conscience which permits him to oppose a free ballot and a fair count in his own State of Maine. In his paper, the Bangor Whig, ho denouuees uuspar Jugly the attempt to secure a free ballot iu the State through tho adoption of the Australian system. Tho secret ballot would make the bulldozing of factory-hands and other work iugineu at election time much more difficult than it is at present in Maluo and other North ern States, and hence the political bosses arc against anything resembling the Australian system. The Bangor Whig declares that if tho secret ballot is adopted, it will mean tho over throw of the Republican party la Maine. It's a pour conscience that won't work both way a. A BRILLIANT AFFAIR. THIS WOMEN'S KKOKI'TION AND KAS (JUHT AT AVILI.AIID'S. Sonic of the Distinguished Ladles Present ITow Tlioy Woro Dressed nnd What They Said About tho Uanquot Table. Tho Woman's National Press Association gave a reception and banquet on Thursday evcuiug in' tho tea-room of Willard's Hotel in honor of Mrs. Potter Palmer, of the Columbian Exposition, Chicago; the officers of tho Woman's Council of Women, aud the Now England Woman's Press Club one of tho most notable and slons of tho week, rouudlnsr It proved to bo enjoyable occa- up tho days of work that occupied tho council with an air of social festivity aud good-fellowship that was charming. Ten long tables tho leugth of the room, with a cross board at iho south end, wore laid for one hundred guests. Another equally haudsomc table was set for twenty or more guests iu the upper hall. The beautiful floral decoration was a mass of light tulips and hyacinths set iu a large oval bed of smllax and maiden-hair fern, and around it were grouped tho guests of honor. Pots of pink aud whlto azallas In s;llt wicker baskets were set at inter vals with very haudsomc fruit pieces, and a bouquet of violets was at each plate. At 10 P. M. Mrs. Potter Palmer arrived and took her place beside Mrs. M. D. Lincoln, presi dent of the W. N. P. A. Mrs. Lincoln wore a simple black silk with rich laces. Bcsido her was one of Chicago's loveliest specimens of womanhood, one whom they delighted to honor, since to great beauty and grace of bear ing Is added the greater power of attraction, a fine intellect. Mrs. Palmer wore a black lace gown over satin and black ostrich feather trim ming. A band of pearls an Inch wide clasped with a cluster brooch of diamonds encircled her throat. Her hair is slightly gray and was worn high. Her manners are easy and her bearing gracious. If a genial presence on Woman's Committee can make the position "go," Mrs. Potter Palmer is tho Ex- the Mrs. woman to do it. Beside Mrs. P timer was E6tclle Merrill, president of the N. E. P. Club. She wore a green velvet gown with corsage bouquet of beauty roses. Mrs. Edward Roby, of Chicago, stood next in line. She wore a Paris gown of gray corded silk and black er mine trimmings, with a diamond brooch. Mrs. Kate Tannatt Woods, of Salem, Mass., a well-known contributor to the Philadelphia Home journal and authoress of a score of books, stood next. She wore a rich gown.of black lace. Mrs. Mary S. Lockwood. vice president of the W. N. P. A., wore a rich black velvet dress, with light brocade front panel and trimmings. Mrs. Lucy Stone Blackwell, one of the most notable of all these talented women, wore a simple gown of black and a cap and stomacher of rich white lace. It had been the intention to include all the members of the W. N. P. A. in the receiving party; but so many notable women appeared that it was quite necessary to break ranks, each member consti tuting herself a hostess in her own right. Miss Frauces Willard, Belva Lockwood, Mary Wright Sewall, Mrs. Ella Dietz Clymer, Mrs. H. N. Ralston, Mrs. Marv Frost Ormsby, of New Yoik; Miss Murphy, of the Toledo Morning Commercial; Mis. Field, of the New Orleans Picayune; Miss Isabella Bally, of Boston; Miss Florette Vintng, Dr. Blackwell, Gen. Rose crans, Mrs. Staples, and Mrs. Meredith, of the Commission of the Columbian Exposition, with scores of other eminent women, mingled in the drawing-rooms, formed the most distinguished social gathering of women ever convened in this city. At 11 o'clock tho supper-room was thrown open. Mrs. M. D. Lincoln sat at the head of the table, Mrs. Meredith on the right hand, in Mrs. Palmer's place, that lady having to retire to meet another engagement; Mrs. M. S. Lock wood, Miss Frances Willard. and Mrs. Carr, of the Chicago Exposition, at the foot of the table. Ou the left of Mrs. Lincoln sat Mrs. EstclleH. Merrill, Gen. Rosecrans, Mrs. Ed ward Roby, of Chicago; Mrs. Emily L. Sher wood, Mrs. Charles Davis, of New York, secre tary of the King's Daughters; Mrs. Marv Lew Dickinson, general secretary of the King's Daughters and professor in Denver University; Mrs. Ella Dietz Clymer, Miss Ransom, artist; Mrs. Lucy A. Leggett, Mile. Decca, and Rev. Amanda Day. On the opposite side were Dr. Uluckwell and Lucy Stone, Col. McCreery, (for once dumb. It belnir. as he said. "wnmnn'A night.'') Dr. Helberger, Mrs. Kate Tannatt Woods, Miss Flora Vinlng, Mrs. N. S. Chapin, Mrs. William Ford Helmuth, of New York Mrs. Gen. Pickett, Miss Alice Blackwell, Mrs, II. N. Ral6ton, Miss Helen Winelow, of Boston; Mrs. Huntley, Mrs. Field, of the New Orleans Picayune; Mrs. Emily Thornton Charles, Mrs. Gist, Mre. Sperry, Miss Cynthia Cloveland, Dr. Ross, Coyne Flether, Mr. Langman, Mrs. Flora D. Sampson, Mrs. McCreery, and others were present. An elegant 6tipper, consisting of oysters, salad6, olives, Ices, creams, fruits, cakes, aud coffee, was served, after which the ."feast of veahon and the flow of soul" was commenced by Mrs. Lincoln making a few felicitous re marks before Introducing the distinguished speakers. Mrs. H. N. Ralston then read an original poem, written for the occasion, which was received with applause. Mrs. Lincoln then introduced Mrs. Meredith as Mrs. Potter Palmer's representative. Mrs. Meredith dis claimed her utter inutility to represent that lady, but she could stand up for the World's Exposition to bo held in Chicago in 1S93, Sho proved to be a good champion of that cause, and made mauy happy hits, but for all that she pined to get back to Indiana, where there was not such a scarcity of the masculine cle ment of society as here, although there were a few specimens of noble manhood represented to leaveu this lump of loveliness. Sho longed for her farm of shorthorns. Then she feat down amid a storm of applause. Mrs. M. S. Lockwood, Commissioner of tho Columbian Exposition at large, said that this hour was the pleasantest part of the week's pro ceedings, and she wittily alluded to Mr6. Mere dith's desire to get back to her shorthorns, with a few remarks tending toward the evolution of the woman's part In tho great coming Fair. Mrs. Lockwood was at her best, and sho sub elded umld a tumult of applauso. Mrs. Estelle Merrill rose with dignity and grace on Mrs. Lincoln's call. Sho sold when told that a speech was expected of her she felt like rebulling, and, like a naughty child, saying, "I will not do it;" but on looking at the little presiding officer she concluded that there was a big will in a little body, aud she would be made to do. She made one of the best speeches of the evening, and gave much information about tho N. E. W. Press Club, which sho said was composed principally of actual women journalists. Mrs. Merrill is a good story-teller, and sho sprinkled her remarks plentifully with this stimulating sauce, which met with due ap preciation. Tho ouly old lady in America, all tho rest being either buds: debutantes, wives, spiu6ters, or elderly women Lucy Stone, then rose at tho call of tho presiding oilicer, and was, on being introduced as "St. Lucy," received with a ris ing ovation and a flutter of whlto handker chiefs, a regular "Chautauqua salute," (which shows how that popular idea has become a woman's graceful substitute for tho noisy saluto of mankind. 1 Sho told n good story on Miss Willard, and sat down leaving that "spinster," as sho calls herself, to hit back if she wanted to. Sho did it well by saying that sho belloved in men and women speaking tho appreciative word of ono another during their lifetime, aud if it was considered "taffy" to toll how much sho loved Lucy Stone during her lifottmo it was not cpltaphy. She also contributed a fact to prehlstonlc ethnology, proving that tho myth of Evo having been moulded out of ono of Adam's ribs was a prehlstonlc error, it latterly being self-evident that Evo's origin was on a higher plane, and that sho sprung from his jawbone, and hns been at it over since. Sho said the Woman's Council now being thor oughly organized, were yesterday (tho general officers) convasslng the subject of an appro priate motto at tho Ulcus House lunch table, and, while various mottoes Avcre suggested, she was going to give this audience a secret of the ono sho suggested, there being no newspaper women present to reveal it; and "Lord, kindly lead," was what she whispered. Mrs. Ella Dietz Clymer, of Now York, presi dent of Sorosis, vice president of tho Woman's National Council, gave a graceful greeting from tho mother of woman's clubs, Sorosis a word that formerly paralyzed a man, ho consid ering It somo dreadful Incantation. Sho said tho nut Sorosis had cracked was tho power to convert conservative women Into good radical women. She know, having been Avith it slnco Its organization, being a charter member. Mrs. Roby, of Chicago, said that fifty-one years ago Chicago was an Indian village, set in tho prairie mud. To-day it glories In being tho second city in America, ha's a million and a half inhabitants, had tho biggest blazo ever known in America, and in 1S93 will hold the biggest fair ever hold in the world. Mrs. Kate Tannatt Woods had three minutes to make a speech iu, but sho ruined woman's reputation as a talker forever, having concluded her remarks Iu exactly ono minute and a half by offering tho following sentiment: "Tho confederation of press clubs: in its sway gener ous; in its impulses, may it go on until the whole number of States are included." Mrs. Mary Frost Ormsby 6poko of tho help to be derived from tho confederation of clubs. Mrs. Nettle Sanford Chapin, of Iowa, said it seemed a pity to send to tho woolly West, which sho represented, for a speaker, when all the culturo of the ripened East was present. She offered as a sentiment, "AH honor to tho pioneers: bravo men and women everywhere. Isabella Beecher Hooker grows more Beech erish in looks aud speech each vear of her lifo. She said she enjoyed every minute of this bright occasion, but especially her companion, Madamo Belgarinla, of England, and whom 6hc gave way to. Mrs. Belgarlnia said she had been in this country two weeks and was almost persuaded to be a republican citizen, so charmed was she. She said American women were ahead of Eng lish women iu one particular. She bad been a guest at the RIggs during all the women's meetings and she had yet to hear tho first word of fault-finding with each other, or of "back biting." Belva Lockwood called for a toa6t to be drunk in pure cold water to "The penwomen of America, as women are so smart they can find and use their brains without the 'stimu lant' that man so often protests he needs." Mile. Decca sung "Home, Sweet Home" most charmingly, and at 1 A. M. the most unique and remarkable of women's gala occasions came to an end, and tho fair guests were bundled off home in cabs or carriages to happy dreams with clear heads. LATE SOCIETY ITEMS.
