A genuine feeling of sorrow followed the announcement yesterday of the death of the late William Hall Slack. There are few men, either in social lift or in club circles. enjoying the wide acquaintance which was his, who was so pleasantly regarded. Of late years he had stepped prominently to the front as the promoter of and organizer of all the leading social events. Probably in this or any other city there never was an individual with so many natural gifts in his capacity for the work nor any whose efforts were followed by better results. He had wonderful executive ability In devising the greatest of these events and the kind est consideration of the opinions of those about him, so that none of the ill feeling which is usually manifest on similar occa sions with other social bodies ever came to the surface in the affairs he managed. For the last year he felt keenly the position in which he stood in his domestic affairs, and he virtually withdrew from society. While he continued to organize all the cotillions and assemblies, he never appeared at any of them. After the guests had assembled and the event was in progress he at once left the scene. In his social dictatorship, so far as public functions went, he efercised a liberality of iders which is eminently characteristic of the true Washington at mosphere. He made no attempt at the ex clusiveness which would form an insur mountable barrier to people new to the capital, and which would, in his judgment rob ~society of its most delightful and de sirable features. Personally, there were few men more sought after, and fewer still whose mair'er gave so little indication of it to the world at large. The keen p6r row and the friendly things expresed on every side are abundant evidence that his memory will be kept green in Washington soc ty for many a day.
