Fun for Outsiders in tlic Troubles of
the Centennial Celebration.
Correspoialence of The Evi sixo Stab.
New York. 3Iarch 29.
The various committees having in charge the
celebration of the centennial of Washington's
inauguration have cause to wish they had
never been born, or. at any rate, that they had
never been appointed. It was a great social
triumph to be a member of a committee to ar
range this great national celebration, and
every man appointed thanked bis lucky stars
for the good fortune of being chosen. It looks
now as if every man appointed grew several
inches immediately thereafter in his own esti
mate of his social stature, too, and acquired a
corresponding disdain for ordinary mortals who
didn't get an appointment. From the start the
committees managed things in such a way as to
keep out everybody except their "set' from
having any enjoyment at all in the celebration,
and, of course, this way of doing things at once
antagonized the outsiders, who weren't at all
backward in speaking their minds about the
course pursued. 'I hen there were internal
struggles in the committees themselves; fac
tions and cliques were formed, and Greek fre
quently met Greek in a set-to that wasn't at all
consonant with harmonious work. But the
greatest row of all urose over the committee's
blank refusal to allow the legislature of the
state of New York to sit on a reviewing stand
and see the parade go by. The legislature had
freely and generously appropriated j^OO.OOO tor
expenses of the celebration and had given its
permission for all the state militia to attend,
and hence thought it had some rights; but
Ward 31cAUister and bis assistants let the senate
and the assetnby understand plainly that the
"Four Hundred," and not the state legislators,
were running this show, and if the legislature
of the state of New York wished to look on
when the parade went by it could run its
chances with the rest of the democratic
multitude and roost on the curbstones. Then
the Albany lawmakers got mad. They got up a
bill withdrawing the jurisdiction of the best
part of 5tn avenu'* from the New York park de
partment. and putting it in the hands of the
senate and assembly, aud said if there was any
further insolence apparent in the centennial
committee they would rescind their big appro
priation and order all the state troops to stay at
Lome. And then the outsiders who had been
snubbed by the committee just howled their
approval, and the members of the committees
begun wondering if perhaps after all there
might not be some higher and mightier power
than theirs in the land, bo the legislators will
now build their own reviewing stand, with nice
soft pine boards to sit on, on the best site for
viewing the parade that 5th avenue affords,
which by their own law they are in absolute
control of.
? ?
But this, although one of the worst calamities
that has befallen the centetiuial managers,
isn't more tiian a small fraction of the troubles
experienced. It will be remembered that at ail
the great balls of the winter here the police
stopped the wme selling and wine drinking
after 1 o'clock m the morning. Somebody re
minded the swells of the centennial ball com
mittee of this fact, aud suggested that per
haps they'd better see about this early closiug
business before they ordered the wine. The
swells of the committee swelled up still more
Mithatine imitation of princely hauteur, and
said, with an arrogant curl of several lips,
"Please to remember, sir. that thiI is not the
Arion ball, nor the Liederkranz ball. This is
our hall, and the police will not dare inter
fere." Then they appropriated 113.000 for
wine, and the suggester of the cautionary
measures looked sick. Yesterday an organiza
tion known as the Personal Liberty league,
which has a notion of making the early-closing
law so obnoxious that it will be repealed, ap
Somted ten of its members as special
etectives to attend the centennial ball,
and if they can catch anybody look
ing for the bottom of a wine glass after the
prescribed hour they will immediately swear
out and serve warrants of arrest ou Ward 31c
A1 lister, fctuvvesant Fish and tli? ether swells
who said "this is our ball.". It isn't an easy
job for even a McAllister to get bail at 2 o'clock
in the morning, especially if a justice is too
sound asleep in bed at home to want to opeu
court for that express purpose, and tbcre isn't
duite so much princely Lautem as there was in
the actions of the committee, and the sug
gester of cautionary measures is sarcastically
proposing that the ball begin at 8 o'clock in
the afternon as a sort of matinee attraction, so
that the guests won't have to get away with all
that 413,000 worth of wme in one short hour.
? ?
The great German society, the Liederkranz,
is working in harmony with the Personal
Liberty league in this matter. Ever since
Capt Beilly's policemen stopped the wine sell
ing at the Liederkranz ball at 1 o'clock, that
society has been making its influence felt in all
circles where any measure can be brought to
bear to indirectly aid in the repeal of the ob
noxious puritanical law. The society has
worked ou a system. One committee of its
members has used its influence with the mavor;
another committee has gone to Albany to lo\>by
through the legislature m repealer; another
committee has pushed charges against Police
Capt. Be illy for allowing his men to interfere
with the guests of the ball in an insulting way;
another committee has been about gathering
evidenee against gambling houses, dance
| houses and the like in Capt. Bella's precinct,
and has brought charge* before the police
commissioners which awuie Reillv of favoring
certain varieties of law-breaking and antagon
izing others. When yon get a German mad vou
get him mad all the way through, aud when"the
whole Liederkranz gets mad you mar look out
for war.
Police Captain Thomas Reillr. of the notori
ous nineteenth or '-Tenderloin" precinct, is
one of the most interesting characters of this
town. The precinct he command*" is the one
containing most of the theaters, most of the
dance-liouses and "sporting houses" of all
kinds in the city. When Captain Williams,
who formerly commanded this precinct was
promoted to be an inspector, it whs generally
conceded that not a captain on the force could
take his place and exercise the same control
that he had OTer the crooked element in the
precinct. It whs a post that none of the cap
taius craved, for its difficulties were known,
the poiice commissioners gave the selection of
a captain for the precinct much thought, and
while they were thinking they put Captain
Beilly at the head of the district
pro tem. He has been there
ever since, aud can stay all of his
natural life if he wants to. He has made ene
nues or neither the people nor the toughs. and
never 111 the history of New York has tii-re bti u
i>S8ii or 'u ''ie "Tenderloins." Captain
iti ill v recognizes the fact that a certain class of
social pnanahs must exist, and so long as they
do not Haunt their vice ill public or with dis
order, he hIIowh tliem some leeway. And yet
there are no outward signs visible of vice," as
there have been in years past. The captain is
a quiet, urbane, courteous fel'.ow who seems
more like a leisure-loving, easy-going club man
than a king of clubs in a police precinct. Cut
beneath his suave and gentle, winning exterior
he conceals a strong determination, a great en
ergv. and an unwavering purpose, His mild
ness never deceives people but once, as many a
crook knows who thought the quiet admonition
to "git' from such a nuld-niannered police cap
tain meant nothing. I don't believe the Lieder
kranz charges against tins man will have anv
effect. Keilly generally know s where he is go
ing to land before he makes a leap.
One of the most unique features of 'ocal his
tory is the career of tho dimo museum. This
style of show was in years gone by a vehicle * ,r
public instruction rather than public entertain
ment or amusement. The curiosities they then
contained were genuine curiosities, freaks of
nature, relics, odd bits of curios pickec' nr ;.f
all corners of the gh.be, and an afternoon
spent at a must urn was as good a-a\c?r's
st hooluig. Now the dime museum is a nonde
script sort of a show where you aro mrtd tt>
enter by announcements that yon don't < xactiv
understand, but which you are curious enough
to solve to pay ten cents for investigation
And when you have investigated you feel like
denouncing tho whole thing as a d >w:;rielit
swindle. One dime museum in town announces
as its leading attraction "eight grass widows
discussing the important question. 'Is Mar
riage a I allure?' " Another advertises a "RTand
potato-paring match by seven genuine farmers'
daughters. A third exhibits a man who husu't
eaten any food for seventv-two davs. A fourth
has a "wood-sawing match between ten Maine
maidens. And coming features of these "mu
seums are - a grand reception, convention and
ball of all the tatooed ladies and gents in the
country, who will participate in all the society
dances, and "Something entirely new! Twenty
beautiful lady bootblacks, who will brighten ub
your understandings for a prize to the chani

A Description of the Vlllarri House
now Owned by Wliltelaw Reid.
(Copyriifht, 1889.]
The Renaissance, as we derive it in this conn- (
Yry, comcs through the Frcnch rather than j
more dircctly from the land of it* birth. Italy. )
The fiiost prominent influence is that of the.
triin*itiu'.al period from the French ROthic |
illlr> the renais?iinee, which was at its height
d iriag the reign of Francis I. Of this there
are some magnificent examples in New York city.
The lofty vaults, the arches, the processional
pillars nnd cold splendor of materials that dis
tinguished Italian interiors do not adapt easily
either to our climate or our manner of living, j
unless it shall yet prove to the contrary on the |
Pacific coast and in the land of gold. There
are. however, some examples of houses and of i
decoration of which Italy is the direct inspira
tion. and these are surpassed in magnificence I
by nothing else in this country. One of these
is" the Villard house, now the property of Mr.
VYhitelaw Held. Another is the water-color
room of Mr. Cornelius Vanderbilt. to which
may be added the details of the dining-room,
consisting of w ork of a kind not done before in
three centuries.
is almost the only example of a consistent ad
herence to one style, for in most of our fine
houses we are giveu samples, as it were, of the
different decorative schools and periods, and
with an impartiality which ought to prove their
owners truly cosmopolitan. The Villard house I
is one wing of a group of seven houses that
! have been distributed witliiu the proportions
I of an Italian palace. The house was built at
a time when Queen Anne was rampant, and its
calm exterior and straight lines were at first
disappointing to people who hud been edu
cated toward gables and living forms. The en
trance is through the court. The vestibule is
large and loftv. and gives the note of the house.
It is lined with Sienir marble with a deep frieze
of marble mosaic in upright slender tloral
forms. A crystal lamp hangs from the vault,
and broad marble steps lead up to glittering
I: glass doors that open into the main hall.
The hall runs ut right angles, and into the
central room of the drawing-room suite ut one
end, and into the music room ut the other.
Here it broadens and receive* the wide sweep
| of the marble stairway. As will be Been this
I length allows for that rare thing in an American
I house, a vista, in this case one that does not do
violence to the adjective palatial. The hall has
superb proportions, aud it ih floored, lined, and
ceiled with marble, but in justice to the archi
tects and decorators one must add that the first
impression is not of magnificence of material,
but of color, light, gay. cheerful color. This is
acquired very subtly, for there are no positive
tints used.
The marble is Siena, the soft, warm, creamy
tint of which is so agreeable. The side walls are
paneled and the panels are separated by narrow
strips of lighter-tinted marble. The celling
consists of a series ot shallow vaults, carried
down to the side walls, aud these are orna
mented with shells, garlands, and ribbons in
marbles of lighter tint. The principal feature
of the hall is the fireplace, above which is a
hemicycle containing the gracious figure of
Hospitality, with two smaller attendant figures,
'lhese were modeled bv Mr. Augustus Saint
Oaudens and are carved in low relief. Bal
ancing this panel is another oppo
site, containing an heraldic emblem,
with its legend in marble mosaics.
Where the grand staircase enters the walls are
carried up two flights to a ceiling composed of
panels filled with flowing ornamentx in relief.
The walls are lined half way up with Siena
marble. The stairs are marble, aud each mem
ber of the balustrade is of marble cut in some
different design, 15ut the beautiful aud salient
feauture of the stairway is the clock placed in
the wall above the wide spaces of the lower
landing. 1 his is carved in the marble paneling
in the form of a square made of the signs of the
zodiac in low relief. These indicate the hours.
In the center of the panel, amid waving silver
rays, are the clock hands, and above these the
silver-rayed pendulum flashes across the
creamy marble. A table of white holly and a
hall seat reproduce as nearly as possible the
tints of the marble.
Some one has said that to go from this hall
into tho drawing-room was to emerge from a
bath of peaches aud cream to one of strawber
ries aud cream. This is a crude but effective
way of suggesting the two color effects, and the
peculiarity in each case is that the color does
not seem to belong to the fiat surfaces, but to
stain the air. In the hall it results from the
two-hued marbles so inextricably nuugled. In
the drawing-room it is a resultant tint from
mahogany, white wood and the embroidered
silken hangings.
The drawing-room consists of three rooms,
or rather it is one room separated by panels
and pillars into three divisions. The pillars,
pilasters and wainscoting are mahogany, but
the wood is everywhere only the basis for or
nament. This consists of light graceful designs,
in inlays of white wood aud mother of pearl'
and amid its interlacings the monogram H. V.
The wall panels are hung with light yellow siik
covered with an all over design embroidered iu
red, or with these tints reversed. The furniture is
upholstered in the same manner. The mantels
make panels of great beauty. The inlays are
fit for museum prices; the fire facings are of
Mexican onyx. Such a room, as may be
imagined, is sufficient for itself, and is inhos
pitable for bric-a-brac, pictures, and the usual
adornments of a drawing-room.
is opposite the grand staircase and is entered
through double oak doors. One end of the
room is recessed by a perforated screen of oak
into a small breakfast-room. The mantel is of
Verona marble, copied from an old Italian
piece, and has a procession of buffaloes cov
ered in low relief as a frieie. The walls are
wainscoted to the ceiling in small panels, plain
except where they merge into the frieee, as
(ierman legends written in inlays. The ceiling
is spanned by cross-beams, and within these
are color decorations of garlands and women's
faces, executed by Mr. Francis H. Lathrop.
The end of the room is paneled to the ceiling
in Siena marble. Above the mantel are three
figures, "Joy," ??hospitality," and "modera
tion." The peculiarity of these figures is that
they are full length, but seated, the arms clasp
ing the knees. In this manner they form bold
medallions that are connected by broad rib
bons. On each side of the mantel are niches
lined with marble, which has been carved to
represent dolphins plunging downward be
neath rippling water. From these niches the
Croton, purified and refrigerated, is intended
to flow.

Among the beautiful and unusual details of
this house are the doors leading from the dining- J
room into the music-room. These door# ari>

as was remarked above, contains decoration
which except in extent parallels flfteenthcentnry
work. As decoration in kind had not been done
before in our time, it was inevitably largely ex
perimental That Mr. Vanderbilt should have
consente d to experiment carried on so luxuri
ously is not only to his credit, but reflects his
I confidence in the decorator. Mr. Jno. La Farge
, Toe dining-room was intended to serve in part
I ,f"r a Plcture gallery, as the lighting indicate#.
I I he only si.te light is received from a small
conservatory which fronts on the street 1 he
main light comes from an oblong panel in the
ceiling, tilled with opalescent glass, glass jewels
introducing the only positive color. It is the
frame-work of this panel which is in fact the
I rest of the ceiling that receives the decoration.
! It is made up of fourteen oblong panels enclosed
between heavy oak beams that are inlaid with
a double Greek fret in mother of pearl.
Four of these panels are alike. In the center
is the head of Apollo, as the snu god. ham
mered from golden bronze. This is surrounded
I by a wreath, of which the leaves are green ser
i peiitlne. At the ends are Loves, modeled and
| carved in Siena marble and holding ribbons of
; mother of pearl. The panel, which is of whit*
mahogany, is then framed in a wreath of bronze
ana ei.Ciosed in an egg and tongue moulding of
old oak. Opposite the fireplace, which is
paneled to the c?ilu>g in old oak, and orna
mented with an interlacing design ia|?id in
mother of pearl, is a panel containing the date
of erection in raised Roman numerals of irorv
j At each end aie wreaths of serpentine, with
j berries of coral and ivory. In hue with this
( and on each bide, are two rurious panels eu
larged ti oru 6ome carved ivories preserved at
| hens. P rance. These are archaic demons of the
; sea and land. Tlie sea is symbolized bv curv
| ing lines of mother of pearl, with N? ptune and
t his trident and mermaids modeled in ivorvand
metals. Busy little figures digging and carry
ing nower-pots represent land.
thkee panels
balance these on the opposite side. The mid
dle panel has a Iioman design, with a central
ornament and large flowers, inlaid with mother
of p. arl; on each side are clasped hands hold
ing olive branches of green serpentine. Of the
flanking panels one bears the word, ?Hospitali
tas," the other "Amicitia," in large raised let
ters of ivory between wreaths of serDentine and
berries of coral and ivory. These are but tribu
tary to the four principal panels in which both
beauty of design and magnificence of materials

full length figures of

j to which all these luxurious materials merely
j contribute. Pomona is a nude figure carved in

tree, and in the right hand holds a knife of

proaching Completion.
a cosspicror* ootct i* the la^mcapk heab
One of the conspicuous object* in the land
scape rant of the Soldi< rs' house ground* is the
new Catholic University building. The corncr- '
stone ot this structure, which i? intended event
ually to (?- one of a group of buildings. ?u laid
less than a year ago, but the work of construc
tion lias been pushed forward so rapidly that
the great atone wall* are np and the pointed
?late roof finished. The bir.Sdiug ia eutirely
enclosed and the interior walls having been
lined with terra cotta the work of pi catering
has been b> gun. The open winter ha? greatly
facilitatt d the work of building. The stone
masons were able to continue laying stone long
j after the ordinary building aeasou had cloaed.
| In fact, nun have bc< n employed on the
j building coiitiuu.'U?ly since the corner-stone
ww laid on the '.4th of May last,
j The date fixed for the dedication of the build- J
ing is November 1 li<*xt. but it was not exiwUd
thut such progress in construction would have I
1 been possible. As far as the completion of the |
building is concerned, no doubt nn earlier date j
| could now be fixed. As it is. the additional j
time will afford an opportunity for completing j
all the detail* of the'structure.
A M*s<i:VE TILE.
The size i* perhaps what first impresses one
who sees it. Although the entrance to the
grounds, which wag formerly known as the
I Middleton place, is at the Junction of the Bun
ktr Hill road with Lincoln avenue, the new
building is located in the went* rn part of the
grouuds aud stands upon the high ridge over
looking the lawn and grove* of the Soldiers'
home park. The situation is a commanding
one. and the high roof, broken by gables and
rounded chimneys, can be seen for a long dis
tance. In whatever direction it is approached,
whether uloug the Hunker Hill road or Lincoln
avenue or the Hare wood avenue road, the mas
sive walls can be s#en standing out boldly in
the landscape or else partially concealed by the
heavy musses octrees, with which this pictur
esque portion ot the country abounds. From
| the Hare wood avenue road perhaps the
best view of the structure cau be
I obtained. The hill upou which it is
I built slopes down gradually from the
j front of the building to the road and there are
but few trees to obstruct the sight. Along the
brow of the hill the building extends for a dis
tance of feet. The central j?ortioU, which
is finished plainly with a gable, is five stories
i high, while the rest of tlie building is four
stories high. The material used is Georgetown
blue gneiss rock, which is laid in broken range
rock face work. The great extent of the build
ing. the material need and the severely plain
j style of architecture combine to produce a
| striking effect of massiveness and solidity. The
I style of architecture is what is
kuown us modernized Romanesque and
j there is but little ornamentation.
| The blue stone work is relieved by trimmings
of Ohio stone about the doors and windows.
There is a little carving introduced here and
there, but the design is essentially plain and
the carved work relieves rather then enriches.
At the main entrance, which is in the center of
the front, there is a stone porch, and above is a
recess made in the wall for a statue. At the
north end of the building there is a return
wing, aud from the rear of the central portion
of the building Is another wing, which is being
fitted as a chapel.
The arrangement of the interior is simple.
There is a large central entrance hall with a
grand double return staircase A grand arcaded
hall extends through the wings on the rear
from end to end. aud the front is divided into
large apartments for parlors, class and lecture
rooms, prayer-hall, Ac. In the return wmgs
will be the divinity-hall and the recreation
rooms. In the basement under the chapel. and
i a few steps below the level of the main floor,
| will be located the diviuitv library, reading
room, ami r'-creatton-rooms. The chapel floor
| will be a half story above the main floor, and
| entered from the landing of the grand stair
! case. The kitchen, laundry, bakery, and
servants' apartments will bo isolated in
the back building. Two large staircases,
partly of fire-proof construction, one at
each end of wings, carried up around back
shafts inclosing the elevators and veutilating
flues, lead to the upper floors. These floors
are divided into suites of rooms, consisting of
a sitting-room and bed-room for each professor
and student. These rooms are arranged on
both sides of a central corridor 10 feet wide.
When completed they will furnish accommoda
tions for ten professors and sixty students. A
private dining-room for the professors is pro
vided on the second door, and on the fourth
floor there is an infirmary, bath-rooms and
other conveniences are provided on each floor.
The architect of this building, which is known
as the Divinity building, is E. Francis Baldwin,
of Baltimore. He is the nephew of Bishop
Elder, and was the architect of St. Mary s
Theological seminary in Baltimore, the Johns
| Hopkins university, the Baltimore aud Ohio
railroad s central offices, aud several churches
in Baltimore.
will be grouped around a central park. Though
the divinity building is the only one which will
; be erected at present, the sites for the other
j seven have been chosen. In the center, facing
the main avenue, will be the grand hall of
science, with its laboratories. To the right,
and rear of the hall of science, the observatory
will be erected upon a high knoll, aud at the
front, on the opposite side of the park, the li
brary building will stand. A large church, or
university chapel, will be erected on the north,
between the park aud the divinity building,
i with which it will be connected by" an arcade.
The high grounds adjacent to the divinity
building will be reserved as sites for colleges
that may be etected by religious orders in con
nection with the university, and it ia expected
that residences for professors will be ai ranged
around the front of the park.
The rector of the university. Bishop Kean, is
now in Rome consulting with the authorities
relative to the organization of the new univer
sity. He proposes also to secure a competent
corps ot professors before his return to this
city. During his absence the vice-rector. Rev.
Mr. Corrigan, is the representative of the
Psyche's Retrospect.

1st. The wonder is that people who 4o not
dance or play cards should go Into society; an
iens 4 person is equipped for social aatartaia
ment, bis piece is 4t home. In the abeaaee of
dancing and card-playing all we caa suggest to
singing, pal mi* try. iwcitatioua, mind-reading,
puzzle guessing, charade*, and other game* in
which books on gamea. purchasable at any
book-store, will instruct yon.
2d. It would not.
Sd. ? man who aaks a lady of a few bows'
acquaintance with bin* to correspond is guilty
of great presumption. It is little leas than aa
insult If tbe lady in question is a voting, wa
rn arried woman it is not proper for ber ta cor
respond with any male acquaintance, tin less he
is a friend of long standing sad well known to
her family as well as to herself. A plain, 1
live negative should be given to the man tow
refer to, whether ho conaioers it nnktnd or not.
