There are a good mauy women iu Wushington who, froui eupenor social tuet ami diplomatic inunogeineut, always bnppeu to be "in" with the "ms," and seldom, if ever, "out" with tlio "outs." 111 tbe ollieinl social lifo here, there is Jittle, if any, distinction betwoen ?oeial aud political, and tlieru is. as ? rule, ns much polities in tbe after? noon tens us there is on the floor of cither House or Senate, although in tlio former ease it is moio churtu ingly veiled and drapi d. In cabinet, diplomatic. Senatorial and CongreB?ioual circles, tlio social lenders are us clearly detiuod ns uro the more purely political leaders iu the hulls oi Government legislation. Just now there uro n few Indu s who, through the combined forces of tbeit individual characters, and the jiositioiis of their husbands, occupy prominent places iu tho social world.

Those who remembo' tlio time when Chief Justice Chase- presided over the Supremo Court niui lived for a time at the corner of Sixth cud E streets, northwest, will readily recall his tall, sluudei and handsome and wonderfully clever daughter, Katberiuo, who was tue idol of her father's heart aud the oeutre of at (ruction iu a lurgo and brilliant cir? cle of society, stio tool; precedence over tue ladies double und treble her Bonior iu the Senate, Cabinet and Embassies, und her wonderful tuet served her ou nil occasions, ] 1 or subsequent career, including her marriage to Governor Sprague, of Ltbodc Island, her divorce mid her rut in n to Washington, the *ceue of her social triumphs, with an iu (cresting group of daughters, ure; ?-tili fresh in the memories ol c largo number of citizens, Mrs. Cleveland mado the f-lep from tho class room of it seminary to the drawing-room of tin- Exeo tiuvo Mausiou, Uupeudiug wholly on tier own judgment lor success. A little more than u girl, u littlu loss than n woman iu years, mot ?caroely more than a child iu e.\ nerieuce, she tool; her place ut bei husband's aide nud instantly as? serted her tights to distiuctiou. Her marriage iu tho White House provoked crilioism the leugth and breudth of tlio Iniul. and her critics prepared themselves lor regular school girl deportment and were disappointed. She did what few women iu tho W hite House have ever dune, i,he captivated und charmed her own sex. it has beeil said that It were better lor thu Democratic party if her limduud | u s.

In Ibis respect Mr. Oievolund diflora very materially from his former opponent, I bo Into .lames G, Ulniue, whose personality won him n host of friends among Democrats and Re? publicans alike, Mrs. Harriot Lane Johnston, who Is spending mo winter at her new home, corner of F und Eighteenth ptreets, ouoo grneeii tho White ilouso with unprecedented charm end Unease, She was educated at the Visitation Convent, Georgetown, while her uncle, James Buchenau, was Secretary of State Hinter the folk administration, ami Miss Lane epent every Saturday nud Sunday with him. At his bouse she met ail that was best, brightest and most distinguished in tho nation, und ac? quired the ease ami grace of manner which afterward attracted tho ad mirutiuu of tue Court of England.

His fervent devotion to tho South, his irrcpronehablo integrity in poli? tics aud vehement patriotism would have made him a favorite iu history iu any ago. Another brilliant represoulativo ol' the great Mississippi Valley, is Hon. Johu S. Williams, from tho famous Yasoo City district. Al? though one of thu youngest mem? bers of tho House, his broad culture and grasp of mmd, aud mastery of the great questions before the coun? try, have placed him iu the front ranks of tho rising young statesmen of tho day, 1 knew bun iu boy? hood wiieu be gave promise of intel? lectual tastes which now Hud elo? quent expression iu his exulted und valiant manhood, lie is a glorious type of that cbivalrio spirit born ol the .Mississippi Valley, which gave to 1'reutiss uu inspiration and forco of geuius which euablcd him to ou trance his audience aud thrill tho hearts of mou, THE WEST END CHAPEL.

THE JUDGE ASKS FOR LAW, A Large Crowd Hear the Revoked License Transfer SystemDis Cussed--The Issue Squarely Made and a Decision Reserved. The discussion of matters relating to tho sale of liquor always attracts large crowds iu Norfolk. This is doubtless due to the conditions wbtch exist here, the like of which no other oity ol the country is so badly affected. The people of Nor? folk for more tbau two years have been striving to curtail in some legitimate manner the iufluenco ex urtad by the liquor trallic, which had spread out its wings ami cneoin pasBed tho whole municipality, with the exception of ?ratnbleton, u veri? table basis la the prent desert of loose onil cureless control. Tho ojuuy evils of which the poo plo complained, they behoved wero the natural products of tho re? voked licoose transfor system, which enabled the man detected in violating the law, to secure dum mies and continue tho business nd iutluituni; that many euch truusfcrs have been made is not denied by any, and have cuused uioro than once, vigorous protests from the press, pulpit and people. Many of the best Judges of the country believe the policy unsound in law, and the community have denounced the demoralization resulting from tho practice. riiii i.ssCE. Somo weeks ago Judge Brooke, of the Corporation Court, revoked the license of M. Enright, of Atlantic City ward, lor selling liquor to a minor, ilo ut once applied for a transfer of his licouse to a person who it was supposed would measure up to tho requirements of the statute. The people of Atlantic Olty ward protested against tho transfer and appeared before the judge of tho Corporation Court ami secured a coutinuauoe. In the mean time Judge IJrooke retired from tho bench and the issue came up yesterday before Judge llunckel. T?R a it Ii t'm r.s' r. Mr. J. (i. Tilton represented the petitioner, Mr. 8. W. Small the peo? ple. The announcement that the question would be argued, and that Judge Haockcl would desire alt of the legal light the attorneys oould furnish, attracted u large and curi? ous crowd. Iu presenting his peti tiuii air. Tiltou argued that there wus u property right in the license, aud though the Court oonld with? draw the privilege it could n-*t de? stroy tho property which the liquor dealer hud a right to transfer to other persons acceptable to tho Court. Mr. Tiltou submitted as it part of urgiiment a letter written ou the subject by Mr. W. If. C. Bills. Mr. Small opened hy saying that ho had listened with pleasure and instruction to tho argument of his young friend and to the joint argu? ment of Tilton and Ellis. A PKCULIAU Bl'SI.NKSS, JIo dwelt upon the fact that the liquor business is a separate busi? ness, a peculiar business, with peon liar dangers and surrounded with restrictions that aro properly tin po-e l;thut tho liquor license i- a privilege, not a right, granted by tho favor of tho court, which privi lege nau tie extinguished altogether. He msibted that invoke means to take away iho personal privileges the holder has m the license; tliu' the transfer of the license is only by llu' further gr.ice of the court aud such transfer is ot a license that hau not been questioned au approved licence; that the holder of a revoked license can't put up at unction the privilege granted him by tho sover eign; that the tax collected for the license it- not au exchange between the sovereign nnJ the holder of the license; that tuxes are collected. as a OONTKIRI 1 !i N and not ns tin exciiungo of values: that the holder of tho license has not received in exchange for his money a value that is trans ferable; that a license revoked is ?Mead." Mr. Tilton closed the argument. Ho insisted that the revoked license l.us a properity right that oau't be taken away from the holder; that tho Court sits in uidgmeut to decide whether tho huldor of a license is u propor persou to sell liquor, and whether tho place at which the liquor is to be sold is a proper nlucc for its eate, and that when tho Court rovokua llie license it only says that iiio privilege to conduct the business has been revolted. 'li.o Judge requested that each at toruey submit u brief, which will bo done, when Judgo llunckel will ren? der hia deoision. The poverty of law quoted on the subject was notieea hie, there being none to quote, us the question owes i s birtu to tho hatching grounds of '.bis on v, Haitis Itravei?
