Mis Willard's charge that Vice Presi-
dent Moiton had a saloon is thus answer
ed bv an Inter Ocean special fiyim Wash
ington, D. C :
"The M'ji- is again repeated that Vice
President Morton has a liar in his new
apartment hotel in this city. A dispatch
has been received heie to the effect that
one II. B Moulton lias telegraphed to
the W. O.T. U. convention in Chicago
to-day, stating that the only bar-room
license in this city has been taken out by
Vice I'lcidenl Moi ton's Hotel. The
name of II. B. Moulton dies not appear
in the last diicctmy of Washington City,
but whoever that puivin is he is giving
new currency to a tale that has often
been denied. The facts are these: 1.
That the vice picsident does not own or
keep a hotel lieu:. 2. That he doe? not
lease to anyone any hotel, hall, house or
apartment, or tenantalile habitation of
any name ornatuie heie in which a bar
is or has been located. What is general
ly called Vice Ptoideut Morton' hotel
is not a hotel. It is an immense apait
.nient house, named 'TheShoreham." It
is in no MMise a hotel. Tiansient guests
aie not accommodated iheie. It is a fur
nished apai Uncut house, the furniture in
which is owned by the hotel. The flats
are tented in suits only for a term not
le.-s than one year. The building is like
ly to be occupied quite generally by con
gressmen. Sixteen congressmen have
already secured apartments, among them
Senator Furwell. of Illinois, and Con
gressmen T:i' lor and Cannon, of that
state. All ate obliged to take their
quarters for a year. Theie is no bar in
the house. There has been no bar in the
house. I asked Congressman Ilitt, of Il
linois, who had received inquiries from
Lis district, as to what he knew about
the matter. He said that he had made a
personal investigation, with this result:
Tin re is and has been no bar there, and
it is not the purpose of anyone to keep a
bar there. Each apartment isentitledto
a vault in the basement for the purpose
of storing whatever it may be thought
desirable to store. It is for the persons
who rent the separate apartments to de
cide what they may store there. They
can keep potatoes or liquor or whatever
they please; but there is no' bar upon
the piemises. The experience of Mr.
Hitt is the experience of everyone.
The simple fact is that there is no bar
in iheShotehatn. Mr. II. R. Moulton,
who is said to have sent a telegram to
Chicago.stating tlmt there is a bar there,
or the editors of the temperance uauer
v
which is said to be circulating the report
in the west that there is a gorgeous drin:
king bar in this establishment are mis
leading the public. There is no bar
there. A telegram in an evening paper
states that m 'address deliveied before
the convention the statement was made:
'Our protect should be sent to the vice
pres'djnt for permitting a saloon under
his hotel 1 here is no saloon there.and
there has not been. The basement is
wholly occupied with these private vaults
for the use of the lesees of the several
apartments."

It is the belief of your correspondent
that the school board Js responsible for
the weekly blizzards we are having. That
is, they agreed upou last Friday week,
to visit the school, and on that day there
came a blizzard, (they didn't go) and ap
pointed Monday this week to go, (we got
another) and they didn't all get there,
and now if they appoint another day and
we get another blizzard, well? hang
'em.

The Latest Dress.
The Atchison Globe poet thus endors
es the Jennie Miller d-ess: "A woman
oft to herself will bur, and moan all day;
but she can't fall down in a. Miller skirt;
they are not built in that. way. Xo more
short steps she'll have to take, to stride
she has a chance, iu more with weight
they'll make her ache, they're cut too
much like pants. The dres reform is
gr winjr bolder: most women now en
dorse it; they swing their dresses from
the shoulder, and throw away the corset.
Nit more when in the waltz qu idrille.
with lacing they will tingle; no more
when boys embrace them will their
backs feel like a hinIe. No
more when Cup'd's arr.iws fly.
when love is hot and reeking: will the
corset, swelled with maiden i-rh-, em
barass them by squeaking. Quite free
he'll wind his arm about, at once his
love tale own, and reach her tender heart
without a journey through whalebone.
Just how the dress re feu m will end, to
ay we are not able; it uives the women
room to bend; and mikes them comfort
able. Oho I bye tih'l drj-io. yn'vs .oen
ynr div, we think 3'ou will have to hus
tle; and side by side are laid uwiiv. the!
corset aud the butle."
