Tho great Oscar has been feted and mado much of by our society, aud attentions from all sides hao been showered upon htm, Ito Is very much grotllkd by tho treatment ho has r6 celved lnco his arrival at tho Capita), and In con versation with a well-known society young lady yesterday said : "Supremely dcllghtrul Is It to mo to know that my nihent In tho metropolis has awakened that reverential sense of thoar tlstlo and beautiful which, Ilk a deep and puro well-spring', lies ntths bottom of every virgin and untainted heart, and needs only "d den Impulse, llko tho rush of awakened waters, to rccal It In all Its prlstluo beauty, Tho beautiful Is not an Intanglblo substance, lost In tho realms nf mUtr enintlness. but tho real essence ofihecood and great. In art everything Is braulllul, and It needs only tho purified spirit of Innoccuco to ap preciate and esteem tho teachings of those gcu lu'cs who devoted their lives to tho suprcmist height allotted to mortal man," Much more was said on tho snino subject, but tho joung lady fainted and could not remember any more, and no pon can do Justice to th expressions of tho poet. Tho few words quoted made such a deep Impression nn tho ouiii; lady when liercHod that sho was a bio to repent them verbatim. Mr. W lido spent yesterday morning quietly at his ho tel and so did bis colored man. Ho passed his time alppliig tea, smoking Turkish clganltM, and reading Tcnii) sou, Swinburne, nnd Ned llumllnc. At two o'clock hoordircdacarrbicoaiid went for adrhe. Dcsplta tho unpleasant day 0car drank lu tho bcautlis of James Creek Canal with mldltv. A counlo of hours . was anent In this way, when tho poet returned to his room and plaed solltalro with tho head cook. Later ho took a shott walk, Mr. Wlldo being a great pedestrian. At nine o'clock tho noted rcMhcto wcut to Representative and Mrs. Robeson's, on K street, aud piscd a unlit but pleasant evening wltlithcin, Mr. and Mrs. Robeson seem to have taken a great fancy to tho poet, and ho fully re ciprocatis It. Naturally Mr. Wlldo was tho ccntro of attraction, but without monopolizing tho coin creation ho managed to lead and iflrert It Into those chauiuls most attractive to his auditors, nnd every oi(0 listened with pleasure in tho well turned andoltgant phrases of tho long-haired lecturer. It Is safo to say that no visitor to our clly from foreign lands has attracted moro atten tion sinco Dr.Tachinyiilli lea for tho shores of ei recce. llir Vlrstllln T,t-slIittiirV Richmond, Va , Jan. 2?.

Bctonrcf a of the Coldest Land Owned by Uncle Sam What Can Be Found Tlif-rc What tho Feople There Want Congress to Do The Indians, Several statements having of lato appeared In regard to tho resources of Alaska, a reporter of Tun l'.ErunncAM noticed thonatno of Mr, Paul Schulrenn the register of Wormlcy's and sought on Intorvlcvv with that gentleman. Mr. Schulzol probably as well acquainted with Southeastern Alaska as any man, and as president of the North west Trading Company has had unbounded chances or studying tho country and knowing Its valuonsa commcrclil cctitio, Mr, Schtilzo was found lu his parlor, busily engaged In correspond ence, but when Informed of tho object of Ihe re porter's visit laid down his pen and gladly wel comed him In a courteous nnd friendly manner. "Tell mo something about tho resources and characteristics of Alaska," said thoscrlbo. " I am personally acquainted wllh Southeastern Alaska (that part of tho Territory lying cast of Mount St. 1 lias)," said Mr.Schtilzo, "end may say that Its general chnraclcrlitlci aro like those of Norway, Nobody with any common senso would oxroso themselves lo ridicule by saying that Nor way Is devoid of resources, Pcoplo ore In tho habit of talking about Alaska ss utterly barren aud a howling wilderness, I hold that tho Terri tory I rich In resources and susceptible; of consul- cnioiu iievciop cm, " W hat nro Its risnurccs t ' "Abov c nil fish , then furs, timber, and minerals, As to timber, tho Island nl llio Alexander Archi pelago nhaiiud with largo bodies of valuahlospruro iiudbemloek.

Nothing yet, however, inn be definitely said about them, A good deal of prospecting has been dono and In dications point tnirrcnt wealth In the near future. Tho minerals yielded by the Territory are gold, sliver, nickel, and copper." "How about tho admlnlstnitlon of Justice In Alaska?" "That Is something I want to tell you about. For years there has been n persistent cfiort to decry nnd bcrnto Southeastern Alnskn. By theso mean tho Territory ha been deprived of nil proper and reasonable legislation, nud tho pcoplo aud thoso Interested In Its welfare have sulK red In conse quence. In Alnskn ut present thcro nro no courts, nor can pcoplo get titles lo their laud and thus secure their Improvements, Thoy can neither suo nor bustled. This la tho main reason why so little progress has been mado In tho devel opment or Southeastern Alaska. Capitalists will not lnv est money vv llliout some protection of tho law, and people will not mako permanent Im provements without lu tug ablo tn secure tho lltlo lo their land. This persistent belittling, ns 1 said before, lias prevented legislation. Now hero is an extract tut from a dally paper In tills city. It says "As to the timber, I havo ill vv av s hi ard that something ' w us going to bu done to dcvolop Its value next y ear 'ovur since my first acquaintance with Alaska, in ISOj.
