THE HOTELS OF WASHINGTON.
TUU UOTELS, TUE £ATUMEIlIN PLACES OF WARMINGTON MOCIBTY. ?hIe Eblsltt Ilouse, Risg's, Willard's and the Arllngten flHotels-Their Chlar anterlatlc. and Patrons. (Spoolal Corrosuondnone of the Dem)ocrat.] EImrT'r lousic, Washington, October is, 1577. 1 When I went, to the Capitol this morning I was told that the Democratic Menators would not push the untlted ucaes Itoday unless the ltadicals for, od the issue, Knowing both tlh tact that thl itadidaln would not fore' the h ssue and the ronson why they would not, I lost. in terest in the tSenate and went over to thet House. There I found the main business of members to bethat of r aidng the new Doorketepr in behalf of the myriad appliants for the hundred and odd small places in the gift of that funtilonary. Thlis state of lingsa was, wtually with the Hen ate, of little Interest, so I resolved towrito a letter on asubjoet whlch carries only an incidental Interest in polities, but which really plays an important part in thosum total of tpublic affairs. I refer to TIlE HoThiI,S OF WAUmINOTON. British eoonomists tell us that the gauge of elvilzation is found in the clasesioation of tastes, habits and pur-utta: that the highest state of livilization involves the closest gre gariousness on the pait of guilds. elasses and denominations among men; that London is the most perfectly civilized city In the world because, though twice as larg as any other city In territory and populatidn, t here is no o'ty - in the world, groat or small, in whi the stranger may so easily find his way to the seat of any particular branch of trado or of Industry which he wishes to find. Thilis indeed true. LIondon hiss its localities not only well defined, but historically pointed out and advertised. Its Commercial District, its Financial District, Its Warehouse Ilistrlt, its flnaser Quarter--in fact. everything, from iodg gigt-houso to palace atnd from a bit of ribbon to a cargo of coal, is classified, set apart and al. most labelod with nomenclature that has be. ' me traditional. In that great metropolis of the world the names of streets have passed Into synonyms of special industries and traffcls, current wherever the English languago is known. Lombard street is a synonym for money-changing, as current In America as in England-and so on ad lihbiftn. 'the same order of distltction is obsorved In the theatres, the parks, the public halls and the, hotels. Everywhere we seo the operation of the Agttlo-Saxon pattiality for order and positive eonvenience-that tendency to save time and abridge locomotion, so as to tranesatr the largest posilble amount. of business with the least pus- I ibleM trouble and expense. There can be no doubt that this classification of groat masses of population and of interests into such de f ied order and with such plain sys t'i. n is. as It is claimed to be, at once : trilumph and a trophy of civilisation. ?robably, as this science of classiflcation e po.gresses, we shall ultimately reach the ideal o'ty of the future. whoose shopping distrie!s iheal be definedl by tlaw and where the green er, who invades the street which is the do- p n of dry gOnlods, may be abated as a legal e ., Bsane. or where the cattle-drover, who regis- n atthe hotel frequented by statesmnn, may . put out by the colored porter without re rse to the civtl rights tillt. Thtt would ocr. sl lybe a lofty fitht of the angel of civliza- it , and it is eortuln to be delayed until other E ref s ate effected nearer the surfatce of the T u'wthut imgng extravaganzas, let us o1 consider the fats relating to the subject first at .ý, suggested. Washington, nt judgment, I In dn one sense at. least the most to lyilized oity on the American continout. at is to say, in a scal sense. Now when speatk of g, TH "SOOCIETY OF WASHINGTON" I must not be understood to refer to those bevies of underdone and overdressed girls, or to those mobs of boys alike boardless and brainless, who chiefly dance its germans and ae Its fashionable calls. This precocious In ti tion indeed calls itself Washington eoiety," but there its title ends. Sensible people, who really constitute the society of the tonal capital, generally regard the insti tution described above Im the outward indloe ions of a successful revolt in the nursery. With thus much of reservation, then. let me proceed upon the hypothesis that Washington fn a social sensc , is the most highly civililed of Amerloan cities. There are various reasons why the hotels of Washington shuld be of greater relative Im pmtaaHlce than lthe hotels of other cities are. In ll other places the bulk of the Important and lfluontial population is permlntucently resident _and domiclhd in homes; so that their hotels re mere caravansaries for the passing enter Sainment of the unknown wayfarer. At all fylnts, in cities like New York, Chicago, New Orleans and St. Louis. whatever eomnunion there is betwoen hotel and resident ile is based upon commenlrctl rather than upon social con " siderationji But heurdlh hotels frequently shelter THE MA(INATEIS OF SOCIETY itself. Here it, is not. the sojourner at the hotel who is glt of in invitation to she home of a friend in the suburbs; butit is the frieonl in the suburbs who seeks the society of the magnate at the hotel. For theseo and other reasons the Washington hotel acquires an imtIor anes peculiarly its own. Eviry hotel in Washington is, by some event within its walls, linked with the hIstory of the nation. The register teems with autographs of the great, and every room has hel a it stats man. If you move about the office floor alter dinner you jostle the rulers of the land, and sntti.e bar-rooms are big with destiny. In short sme partl of the fierce glare of no toiety which thu. nation tlrns upon its eatltal falls on its lhstelries and gives them an interest to manklind. There ,;re four really great hotels in Wash ington, two great restuauraut and two colossal boarding- houses. THE FOUR (fREAT IIOTELS ae the Ebbiti house, own d and manured by QaWleb O Willhrt; Willard's Hotel, owned by Henry Willard and managed by John F. Coke; the Arlington, owned-well, by its mortgnganss- and managed by .oiessI : and the lilggs louse. which h is its fame all before it. 1'The two great restaurants are We-ker's and Wormley's, and the two cot, sal boarding-houses are called the National and the Metropolitan. These hotels have gradually fallen into lines or "runs" of special patronage until they have acquired sonlmthing of the distinctivcuess of character notod above as the British test of civ Ilitation: a distinctiveness whichis notto be found in the hotoels of any other city in the- land. THEC E.nrTT HOUSE is the socrity hotel. It is the resort of the army and navy anlmost without exception, and the supeeisal .ilc,,.t of Imanaaging mnammas Who come hiller '" brlny out their daughters in I WaShinstm soc'inety.' The proprietor. Mr. I WLllardt, makes a first bid for this iatticrular class of iusltoi, iby carefully attending to tue I outward attriactiveness of his house; You know It is the outward hubilirnent that chiefly catches eeye of he society female; and thus Mr. Wil beckons the sweet creatures unto him. 'he Ebbitt stands at the corner of Fourteenth andF streets, and occupies one quarter of an immense block. bounded by the two streets named, Thi rteenth,E and Pennsylvania Avenue. 1 Its light Fre.ich style of architecture, clean white tacite and general airiness. give it the appearance f a watering place rather than a city hotel. The outward effect is fully sus talned within,. for Mr. Willard, having invited the birds of so.ltety by the outward beauty of his cae, in tlakeon ,are to prolong the thlappy fancy by tilling the insieo with looking-gitas s t and provtinug-not one vast, awkwa.e p ,rlor. bt several small. cosy ones. in various oInex nooks and corners of his building. are some of the distinctive features of e ociety hotel, the management of which is _-ondueted to conform to the character a ready est-blished. The hot-I during the social n become- a domestic establislmenr on a Scale. t gives two or three regular fetcs wuringthe season. and every Baturday evening a wsoiree dasaaute, t whioh alt reg.lar guests a. e expseted to invite their friends.

Wlllard's is the headquarters of the politifcans, a" the Ebbltt is of the society people. The house is an immense bulldinr,, rangy in facade and disjointud in architecture. with Its dining-room tdown cellar, I and is full of dark corridors and back rooms it ftor the treason stratagem and spoils of the poltlicians who frequent it. The lessee and manager, Col. John F. Colco. Is one of those gifted individuals who knows how to keep not Sonly a hotel, but two for he in also manager, during the summer, of one of the big hou sn at Cape MItay. He is a clever fellow, and holds his peculiar run of custom well in hand, TTHE ARLINGTON is of later growth than the Ebbitt or Willard's. t Is in the, West End and was orlilnally doe 1 signed for the headquarters of the arlstocra ,yr 'that flourished in Washington ten years ago. Uonsequently It. became to a great extent the olysium of thecartoet-bingers and the favor r ito hunting ground of the lobby. The proprie tor of the Ar linrton-lioessle-is always the most distingulshed man there. The rates used to be ta a with extras. The extras consl4ted laragely n being permitted to view the distin. guilshd proprietor once or twice a d,y. Four years ago I went to call on a carpet-bag Senator at the Arlington. The "Senator' had been ac cused of stoeling several Important mail routes and other portable property of the government in Texas, and I wanted to ask him, as a matter of news. if it was true, and, if so, what he had done with the stolen property. Going up to the 1 counter I Inqulred "If old -- was n ?" The great and beautiful Ioossle was behind the counter. He bent upon me a withering glance which destroyed several years growth of me, and whech I have only recently recovered from. " 'o whom do you refer?" he Inqulrcd. in a truly massive manner. "Why to old -, of --." I replied. e Iajetii'atlly the great man turned upon his heel and like a beautiful dream he disa peared in the mysterious racesses of his bark ofce. I leavingl his clerks to curdle my young blood t with their freezing politeness. Ihad outraged the dignity of the Arlington. I had offended the decorum of the headquarters of carpet-bag Pfery and the lobby. I never learned whether old- was in or not." Some years later I heard talk of a receiver about to lb appelntcd for the Arlington. I sup pose the dignity of the proprietor was too much for the concern. I should imagine that the dignity of Itoessle could not be supported on anything loss than the fortune of Crawus. TUE R(1005 HOUSE is a now venture and is located on Fifteenth street, opposite the north end of the Treasury. The house is simply a well-to-do brick affair but the hills are strictly palatial. I am told that it costs a dollar and a half to stand in front of the Riggs and pick your teooth. The RiLggs has not yet established a distinctive character except for hiah prices-whioh is not a good character to have in these times which try men's souls. No newspaper correspondent can stop within one block of the Riggs. The aver a~e newspaper salary wodid not pay the tooth pick bill. I see I have alrnady exhausted the limits of a letter. On some other occasion I will resume the subject and devote a letter to chararteristlo kneedotes and historical sketches concerning these famous hotels. A. U. IB. Get your kid gloves at Kreeger's.

Pa TiDl eATII IIl3TI' - A Prominent Itepubllean's View of It a and Indersement of the Nleholls Administration. Some days ago ex-Gov. Michael Hahn, the Speaker of the Packard Leglslaturo, and a recognized chief of the Republican party, rn ceived a letter from a promlinnt Reopublican I politician of Philadelphia and editor of a lead a ing journal in that city, from which the follow n Ilng extracts are taken: "Oan you tell me anything about Loueisana c oonsols as a safe Investment? Others and I have d been watching them since you have Itwn settled 1 down by Mr. Ityes, and we have been told by r certain brokers that they are good, and ought tto be at par. What Is the dbtl of thr state. and s what is the likelihood of repudlation? The Southern States have a way of repudiating t hel r ;. debts that make investors shy of them. I know - you are in a position to give good and trust worthy information on this suhiect." t To which Mr. Hahn gives the following reply, of which he has furnished us a copy: SNzw OanraANS, October t.1877. d Mu Dear Sir--In reply to your lntter Inquiring d as to the validity and solidity of the state scti rities known as htate Jansols, 'I have to say r that the funding act whlch was passed under r the Repubhlican administration of the Stfate and made a part of the constitution by an amend Smeort thereof, has stood the test of the sevorost t examination and hes proved one of the most r suce ssful and complete funding acts which I was ever enactod in any of the States. Its gunr e antees are of the strongest and most impregna ble character. T The old debt of the State. after being sub jected to a thorough sifting of all doubltful claims and securities being referred to the Soour t and roegularly adjudicated upon. has been reduced to the sum or twelve millions, which arerepresented by consolidated bonds bearing 7 per cent Interesr, and having forty years to run from the 1st of January, s114. These bonds are made a constitutional contrnat. The Legis I latuer can never inquire into or repudiate the same. A fixed tax oif 5. mills on the assess ment of all the taxable property of the State is set apart as a trust fund, requiring no auvro priation by the Legislature to apply them to the payment of the Interest semi-annually of these' bonds. It is made a highly penal offense for any State offieer to apply them to any other pur pose. The obligation, so to keet'p this tax and apply it as prescribed, has been Imposed on onto of the largest and most responslble of tlhe city banks, up to within a ftw months ago, and is now imposed on anoither bank also plendidl ly managed. 'The tax never pansses into the btate treasury, but Is hold by the bank as a trust fund, payable only to the holders of tthese bonds. The present State government has been care ful to indicate and prove Iby its acts that it will fulfill and dischargo all the bllgations of this constltutional contract. It it scilnimed and re fused to go into any inquiry in regard to alleged illegal issues of conaols by previous adminfs tratlons, but nasumed as consttutituonal and conclusive contracts all those whil"h have boon issued as consols. Human ingenuity could not devise more complete securities for a State debt or better guarantees agaInst repudiation. The tax, which is fixed in the nnsfltut tion at a t, mills, is amole to moot the interest, and tiht total tax of 14 i mills is abundant for all the ex penses of the State. There are good reasons to believe thils tax will be collected, and that It will be hones ly appllld. The present. State administ ration, at the head of whiaro is Governor Nicholls, has minifoest'd thus far a I beral spirit to till classes of the poe tile, and has declared its policy, and to a certain extent has carried it out, of redueing the ex fenses of the governmennt and administering its a ,airs with inturl.y, punctuality and jus tice to all. From this rather extended statement of the character and facts relative to o r State si curittes, you and your friends must draw their own conclusions as to the safety, value and cer tainty of the consols of this State as an invest ment.
