Small and Early Dance tit HtiusdierVi ..Miss Alices ltocliestci'B Luncheon. Fashionable interest was divided last night between the reception at the Ex ecutive Mansion, the dance of the Small and Early class at Rauscher's and the fifth-annual ball of the Southern Relief Society, which was, by all odds, the most brilliantly successful function given in the name'of charity which has occurred in this city for years. Southern smilax transformed the Na tional Rifles Armory into an arbor of sylvan beauty, the vivid green of the foliage contrasting with the red drape ries and snow-white walls. Under the chandeliers swung huge red umbrella like disks, through which the light glowed with rosy brightness, and the platform was hedged with palms. As the guests entered the hall they were received by .Mrs. Ralph Walsh, president of the Southern Relief So ciety, together with a committee com posed of the wives of the Congressional representatives from the Southern States and ladies representing the Dis trict of Columbia, as follows: Alabama, Mrs. Bankhead; Arkansas, Mrs. Jones: California, Mrs. Maguire; Delaware, Mrs. Kenney; Florida, Mrs. Sparkman; Georgia, Mrs. Bartlett; Kentucky, Mrs. Lindsay; Louisiana. Mrs. Meyer; Mis sissippi, Mrs. Catchings; Missouri, Mrs. Bland; Maryland, Mrs. Gorman; North Carolina, Mrs. Butler and Mrs. More head; South Carolina, Mrs. Wilson and Mrs. M. C. Butler: Texas, Mrs. Savers; Virginia, Mrs. Daniel and Mrs. Swan son:Washington, Mrs. Lewis. The ladies of the District were: Mrs. Forbes Beale, Mrs. Chatard, Mrs. Robert I. Fleming, Mrs. E. K. Goldsborough, Mrs. Green Clay Goodloe, Mrs. Robert Hinckley, Miss Kibbey, Mrs. N. S. Lincoln, Mrs. F. B. Loring, Miss Virginia Miller, Mrs. 55. B. Vance, Mrs. Joseph E. Washing ton, Mrs. E. Rust Smith, first vice president of the Southern Relief So ciety: Mrs. Albert Akers, serond: Mrs. Archibald Young, third: Mrs. Edward Ayres, fourth; Mrs. S. Sprlgg Belt, chairman of executive committee; Mis. Robext N. Harper. Mrs. Magnus Thompson, Mrs. W. D. Pcachey, Mrs. J. W. Drew, Miss Lena Richardson, Mrs. E. M. Gadboii and Mrs. Green wood Stanley. Tile committee on dancing who con tributed so effectively to the success of the evening, consisted of Mr. M. S. Thompson, chairman; Mr. Finley Har ris. Mr. AV. D. Peachey. Mr. T. W. Hun gerford, Mr. J. H. Ingraham, and a co terie of young Southern society men, who performed their onerous duties with all the gracious courtliness for which their fathers were famed. Web er's band, stationed in the balcony overlooking the ballroom, gave inspira tion to the danceis by their exhilarat ing measures, and closed the evening with that dance so dear to the South ern heart the old Virginia reel. The committee on dancing, who so happily arranged the night's program, were Dr. Duff G. Lewis, Mr. Frank B. Martin, Dr. Mason, Mr. J. D. Bradley and Mr. Blunt. The reception lasted from 9 to 10, af ter which the ladies of the receiving party adjourned to the platform, where they received informally those who arrived later from the theaters and the reception at the White House. The badges worn by the Moor manage! s weie of red, white and red ribbon, with ciossed Confederate Hags in gilt, while those worn by the ladies were red and white satin, the pointed ends or namented with a gold tassel. A few among the hundreds present were Senator and Mrs. Chilton, Senator and Mrs. Money, Miss Money, Senatoi and Mrs. Martin, Mr. and Mrs. Freder ick Harper, Dr. and Mr?. Harper, Rep resentative and Mrs. Cow herd, Mr. and Mrs. Luther Long Shaw, Miss Foster, Mr. and Mrs. Cyrus Mantz, Miss Mantz. Mis. Goff. the Misses Atkinson, of West Virginia; Miss Minnick.

The third and last of the subscrip tion dances given duiing the winter by the Small and Early class at Rausch er's last night was a brilliant conclu sion to the series that have been among the most delightful dancing events of the year. The Small and Early class was or ganized by a number of the most dis tinguished ladies in the capital for the purpose of giving pleasure to their young daughters and friends, and the guests last night, with but few excep tions, were the same who enjoyed the hospitality of the class at the previous dances, as all cards sent out repiesent ed invitations to the series of three. The chaperones of the evening were Mrs. Archibald Hopkins. Mrs. John S. Ward and Mrs. John G. Walker, and among the dancers were the Misses Warder, the Misses Owen. Miss Palmer.

If variety is really "the spice of life," the benefit performance given yester day afternoon at the Columbia Thea ter by Washington Lodge, No. 15, B. P. O. Elks, certainly had a fair share of seasoning. Neaily every theater in the city was represented on the program, besides which a number of people came from Baltimore to assist, and a half dozen local societies took part. As may be readily supposed, with such an en tertainment to offer and such people to give it, the Columbia was crowded to the doors and, as may be as easily un derstood, the bill was a very long one. For nearly five hours the performance continued, and had there been less va riety the audience must have been wearied long before the entertainment was over, in spite of its excellence. Williams and Walker, colored come dians, who were seen here last week, started the bnll rolling and set the ap plause going with their well-known turn, and Ilelene Mora followed with three songs. Charles K. Sweet evoked considerable enthusiasm with his mu sical tramp act; McMahone and King presented a clever black-faced turn, and Sam J. Adams introduced a mono logue both unique and genuinely fun ny. Miss Hyberta Pryme appeared in the familiar garb of a serio-comic and contributed two songs, while Collins and Collins brought down the lrouse with their singing and dancing. Charm ing Marie Stuart, together with Hines and Remington, brought to a close the Mist portion of the bill. The second began with a scene from "Julius Caesar," in which Thomas W. Keene was the Cassius and Charles B. Hanford the Brutus. Both gave excel lent portrayals of two difficult parts. Rose Sutherland, a chic little dancer, who was seen here last year with "A Trip to Chinatown," and is at present a member of the company playing "A Hired Girl," reiterated her ability as a dancer. "Waldo Whipple told some rather ancient jokes well, and Fannie Fields proved her right to the sobri quet "happy." Willis P. Sweatnam. the old-time minstrel, and the Althea Sisters made excellent impressions, which Thomas J. Ryan and Mary Rich field seconded a bit later. The Mad rids, who have earned the right to be called "The Old Madrids" by long and honorable service, pleased with theii music. The entertainment was brought to a close by a clever presentation of Charles Palmer's adaptation of All phonse Daudet's story, "1S71." In this Edward J. Walsh. John J. Nolan, A. T, Seaman and Alice Irwin appeared to advantage. The one unpleasant feature of the entire performance was the feeling aroused by Mile. Held's refusal to ap pear after being advertised. Col. Ed Hay commented rather sharply on the matter, and his remark'? were so heart ily applauded that the state of opinion was plainly shown. Ximineiinmi Declines to lie Lender. Prof. Zimmerman, of the Naval Acad emy Band, has declined to accept the leadership of the Marine Band. His leason is that the pay is too small. No appointment will be made until it is de tei mined whether or not Congtess will pass the bill giving the leader the pay of a second lieutenant in the Marine Coips Mr. Larien, the acting leader of the band, gives excellent satisfaction. Coining to Washington. A pnrty of delegates to the National Women's Suffrage Association meeting and the meeting of the National So ciety of Daughters of the American Revolution left Chicago yesterday morn ing at 10:20 o'clock, over the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, and will reach Wash ington today at 11:33. The Master Key. A doctor who pre scribes a dozen dif ferent rem edies for the symp toms o one disease is like an old time turn key lutein jr about a ponderous bunch of keys, each one to open a different door. When anyone's J blood is thin and ' watery and poi- jlf soned with bilious if( impurities this condition will chow itself in ev- . r .1.- body and the av- pracp dnrtnr crives one medicine for the stomach, another for the head, a third for the lungs aud so on; as if each particu lar symptom was a separate dungeon of misery to be unlocked with its own particu lar key; but the scientific, experienced physician looks deeper and seeks the one master-key which unlocks them all. Thirty years ago Dr. R. V. Pierce, of Buf falo, N. Y found the wonderful "Golden Medical Discovery1' which has since made him famous: It is the perfect master-key which unlocks every torture chamber of weakness and pain caused by faulty action of the digestive system. Itc'ives the stom ach and blood-making glands power to pro duce the healthy blood which drives out all impure disease germs and waste products, and builds up healthy tissue, solid muscu lar flesh aud nerve energy. Mr. J. W. Briltin. or Clinton, Dewitt Co., 111., (P. O. Box 475), -writes : " For over a j ear I was troubled with liver complaint,' had no appetite, could keep nothing on my stomach and had severe pain in mv stomach and bowels. I doc tored with home doctors but did not obtain re lief until a friend advised me to take Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. After taking four bottles I think myself cured, as I can eat any thing I want and my food never hurts me. Thauks for your medicines. I cauuot saj too much in favor of them." For constipated conditions Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are the best simple, com fortable laxative. They never gripe. Ac cept no substitutes or imitations. I CrJW O MS u a TWO IRISIMMENDMENTS They xre Rejected by ihe British House of Commons. V One Gnve 1 1 'Inna Home Rule una the Other GrniitfflVAimiosty to l'o- llticnl Prisoners. London, Feb. 11 ..-In the House of Commous today .John E. Redmond, member for Waterford City, and the leader of the Parnellite Nationalists, moved an amendent to, the address in reply to the queeri's speech, favoring home rule for Ii eland. Mr. Redmond's amendment asked for an independent Irish parliament. The other sections of the Irish parly jn Parliament held a meeting and un animously decided to support the am endment. Mr. Redmond taunted Mr. Dillon, the anti-rarnellile leader, with not having moved a similar amendment. He de clared that the Nationalist cau?e was sacrificed to the maintenance of a Lib eral alliance. Mr. James O'Kelly, Parnell member for Roscommon, seconded Mr. Red mond's motion. Sir William Hai'court, the Liberal leader, said that Mr. Redmond had ask ed the Liberals to repudiate 'the suprem acy of the imperial l'atliament, which had been placed in the forefront in two home rule bills with the consent of the Irish parly. William Redmond, the Parnellite member for East Clare, moved an amendment to the address to the effect that annesty should be granted to the Irish political piisoners. Lord Charles Beiesford, the newly elected Liberal Unionist member from York City, supported the amendment. He said that many Irishmen believed that these prisoners woie tteated more rigorously than other prisoners. His re marks were cheeied by the Irish mem ber.". Sir Matthew White Ridley, the home secretary, opposed the amendment in be half of the government, and it was u jected by a vote of 152 to 100. London, Feb. 11. Mr. Redmond's amendment asks for an independent Irish parliament. The other sections of the Irish party in Pailiament held a meeting this after noon and unanimously decided to sup port Mr. Redmond's amendment. COTTON GOODS COMBINE.

Watch Next Sunday's Issue! CARTER'S COURMARTIAL Judge Advocate Barr Comments on Civilians Refusing to Testify. Thinks Other Tribunals May Hare the Power to Compel Witnessed to Answer Questions. Savannah. Feb. 11. In the Carter court martial trial today Col. Barr, the judge advocate, before calling Jacob Paulson, president of the Savannah Rowboat Company to the stand made an address to the court In which he referred to published statements that the court had announced that it had no power to punish contumacious wit nesses, Col. Barr saying further that he was forced to admit that an attor ney general had ruled that there is some deficiency in the legislation that decides and controls the administration of justice in matters connected with the army. At the same time the judge advocate said that while this court may not be empowered to force answers from wit nesses there are other tribunals that have the power, and should a commit tee of Congress decide to investigate the refusals of witnesses to answer ques tions there Is no doubt of its power to compel answers. Mr. Blair, counsel for Capt. Carter, protested against the remarks of the judge advocate as far as they concern ed Capt. Carter and attempted to pre vent the remarks of the judga advo cate from going on the record, but failed. Mr. Paulson was then put on the stand, but persistently refused to an swer question concerning an agree ment between the bidders on gov ernment work in the Savannah harbor as to who should and who should rot biJ. KEEXE PLAYS SHYLOCK. The T i aijed Ian Gives n Satisfactory Performance. With the ghosts of two very bad Shakespearian portrayals staring him in the face and a small audience per forming the same office, Thomas W. Keene began last night at the Lafayette Square Opera House, and succeeded in giving a fairly satisfactory performance of the role of Shylock, in "The Merchant of Venice." In many ways this was sur prising, since the crafty Jew gives rise to as much discussion and probably to more difference in conception than eith er Hamlet or Othello. For tome reason Mr. Kcene's art seemed more mellow and less melc-dramatic than at any time during the week, and the result was a portrayal that was not at all discredit able. Occasionally the actor gave way to the loud style of work that has so much injured the rest of his parts, but. as a general thing, he invested the role with dignity and repose. His Shylock was rather younger than he is usually pictured, more of a bigot and less of a usurer, but there was no fault in this, and the audience was not slow in testi fying its approval of his acting. Lucia Moore was fair as Jessica, but Mary Timbermann gave Pottia a number of ridiculous affectations of voice and manner that early provoked the mirth of the gallery and the disproval of the remainder of the house. Her Portia was extremely matured and different In every way from, the ingenuous character she should have been. George Morion seemed to be under heavy pressure, as Antonio, but he evidently had the cor rect conception of the part, and his act ing was intelligent, if not particularly strong. John Milton was a neutral Bassanio. and Paul G. Taylor won many admirers by his legitimate acting of the part of Launcelot. He made the imper sonation consistently humorous.
