evident relish and confined the fight to
the stanch old parent of all the classes—
the Fortnightly— and to Its latest off- :
I spring, the Terpslchoreans. Like a gro
j tesque Bhadow, the portly form of Green
| way hovered in the background, with an ;
"I neither palliate nor deny" air, sort of
casting oil upon the troubled waters. The
I ancient tale retold has, however, one
atoning feature. Mrs. Wells, mother of
Marie Wells, debutante, has come to the
front, makes the fight a more or less
personal one between herself and Mrs.
Monroe Salisbury, the organizer of the
Fortnightly, and offers much spicy matter
In evidence.
According to Mrs. Wells, Miss Marie
has, previous to this season— the season
that has witnessed her u-nfold her dainty
petals and bloom from a shrinking hud
to a full-blown belle— been a prominent
member of the Fortnightlys, and always
j attended their dances. But this season
: all that has been changeu; and thereby
hangs a not uninteresting tale of "cash
ambrosial cash."
Said Mrs. Wells: "Wo have always been
i good friends of Mrs. Salisbury. My hus
, band and she were boy and girl friends,
i and they have always called each other
'Kate' and 'George.'
"Mrs. Salisbury knew Marie was to
come out this season, and she said all
sorts of nice things about the child to
Mr. Wells. She said Marie would get on
wonderfully in society if she could only
i be brought out under proper auspices—
I that because I am not a society woman.
Mr. Wells' only reply was that he had no
ambition to see his daughter a belle, but
was quite Batisfled that she should be
Just such a care-free, happy, good little
I girl as she is.
"Mrs. Salisbury, however. Insisted so
I that Mr. Wells spoke to me rather won
: derlngly of her persistence. But finally
j there came from the lady a request for
I a loan.
"Mrs. Salisbury wanted $3000 very badly,
! and she asked Mr. Wells for it. Mr.
| Wells told her he really couldn't spare
j the money, as he expected a call from
| his Mexican mines that would take all
! his ready cash. Mrs. Salisbury s;<id if
j Mr. Wells wanted to he could* get the
I money for her from a certain capitalist,
; and when Mr. Wells declined she was
very angry.
"We thought no more about the mat
j ter. Marif signed nway all her germans
[ for the season, never once dreaming that
sho was to Tff; left out of the Fortnightly.
"But her invitation never camp. At
first the child thought it an oversight,
but when our friend Mr. Colin Smith,
1 who knows Mrs. Salisbury very well,
asked her about Marie. Mrs. Salisbury
said that Marie had been very rude to
! her.
"Mr. Smith said he doubted Marie being
' that sort of girl, and Mrs. Salisbury said
: she had been so rude as not to calf upon
j her for a year.
"Now, none of us care at all about
| this. I've been a very happy woman and
I never in society! Mario stems to enjoy
\ it, though, but she has any amount of
I beaus and attentions and Invitations, and
| she is as gay and busy and happy as any
girl could find time to be."
And Mrs. Salisbury— the center round
: which all goseip revolves, the organizer
I and mainstay of the Fortnightlys. has
i not one word to fs;iy. She treats the mat
! ter with a dignified, silent contempt, evi
dently assuming that her position needs
i no explanation.

The Davis Brothers Get Seven
Years for Attempted Robbery
of the Mails.
Yesterday was sentence day In the
United States District Court, and Judge
de Haven pronounced judgment upon four
criminals. The first to stand up was
Charles B. "White, a Stockton man, who
got into trouble by advertising an unlaw
ful medicine through the mails. He was
sentenced to pay a fine of 1300, or In de
fault to be imprisoned in the Alameda
County Jail until the fine should have
been paid.
James N. and Edgar L. Davis, the
brothers who tried to rob a mail coach
near Wllllts. In Mendocino County, last
Christmas night, were sentenced to seven
years' imprisonment with hard labor In
the San Quentin penitentiary. The sen
tence was light because it was their first
offense and because they saved the Gov
ernment the expense of a trial by plead
ing guilty.
Stephen Rosenbaum. alias Pinkey, one
of the notorious Rogers gang of counter
feiters, was sentenced to pay a fine of
?100 and to be imprisoned with hard labor
in the San Quentln penitentiary for
eighteen months.

Vice - President Hobart
Takes Precedence
of Pauncefote.
Thus the Comity of Nations Is
Preserved and All Js
British Government Does Not Hesi
tat» to Come to the Rescue of
Washington Society.
Epec'.al Dlscatch to The Call.
Call Office, Riggs House,
Washington, d. C, Jan. 15.
Washington society is tranquil again,
having settled a momentous question of
social precedence. The British Gov
ernment has decided that the Vice-
President of the United States takes
precedence over the British Embassa
dor, and Sir Julian Pauncefote has, un
der Its instructions, made the first call
on Vice-President Hobart, which the
latter has returned.
The question was raised by Sir Ju- i
Han, under the last administration,
when Vice-President Stevenson good '
naturedly waived his claim of preced
ence, but Vice-President Hobart did not
feel that it was right for him to do so i
and so refused to call upon Sir Julian
Pauncefote until the latter should call !
upon him.
As the dispute, although compara
tively unimportant, was liable to make
some friction at official functions. Pres
ident McKinley wrote, unofficially, to
Embassador Hay, with the approval of
Vice-President Hobart, asking him to
sound the British foreign office on the
subject, with the understanding that
whatever it decided would be accepted
by the United States.
Colonel Hay did so and replied that
the British Government accorded the
precedence to the Vice-President, and
that was quickly followed last week
by Sir Julian's formal call on Vice-
President Hobart.
Thus ends a controversy which has
made infinite talk in official and social
circles, although it has not figured
much in the newspapers.
