A dispatch from Washington re ports a bill just passed the house which "provides that any person within tho District of Columbia or other placo over which tho United States has cxolusivo jurisdiction who shall lovy or attempt to levy blackmail on any person by making, threatening or at tempting to moke any disclosure, cither written or by publication, within or outside of such distriot or place, in jurious to to tho character of any person for the purpose of obtaining money or other benefit, or for tho pui po30 of ridiculo or revenge, shall bo guilty of a misdemeanor and upon con viotion thereof boforo any court having jurisdiction shall bo punished by lino not exocoding $1000 and shall bo im prisoned or confined at hard labor for not exceeding ono year, at the discre tion of tho oourt." The dispatch closes as follows: Under such a law it is probable the jails of every county in tho United States would bo speedily filled, not only with newspaper moo, but with the best classes and their wives. Tho law is vicious and it is strango and unaooountable how suoh a bill ever passed a Democratic honse. But, so far as filling tho jails of overy county in tho United States, that is all stuff. The United States has ex clusive jurisdiction in but a very small part of a small number of oounties in the United States. The bill, howovor, does brid die tho press absolutely in the Distriot of Columbia, and any other plaoe whero the United States haB cxolu sivo jurisdiction, and the fact that tho bill was reported at tho first of tho session, went to tho judiciary committee was reported favorably to the houso disoussed at lentrth and passed, without somo newspapor cor respondent oatohing on to that "or f or tho purpose of ridioule or revepge"x olauso shows that the prescnf ' pross gang at tho national oa'pital have forgotten tho "price of liberty." And, hero is another thing. Hon. David 13 Culberson is tho chairman of tho judioiary committee, why did he not finmn to trip roarnn nf tlin (Vnnlnm tiftho press? The News will wager theteltzer for tho whole gang that if Hon. Rogwx Q. Mills had been pres ont in the hou6s when that bill was reported ho wouldhavo defeated it. Alderman Herbertho silvor king of the Fifth ward rcmamed last night in conversation about Mhe Chilean embroglio that tho president had - : a btoh of the whole matteV and that ho should havo rofcrrcd the Chilean alia r to the Texas railroad oommis siorA The difference between Hill and Millfc on the Silver coinaco and tariff refown questions is that Mills is for silvei'tpinago and tariff reform while Hill is fox njBadent. SOCIETY- Socioty flashed up and soared aloft likoa rookot last wock, bursting into several brilliant lights and oolors in high places; the stick oamo down this week. This has been almost a placo of darkness on tho social oalondar, the Elks ontortainment alono lighting up tho sombor gloom of inaction. Wo are a fronziod pcoplo and last wook tho frenzy siezed us to do great things, whilo this week our desiro to do noth ing amounts almost to a frenzy. Why even tho Philo Literary Club failed to hold a literary mooting this week. Tho King's Daughtors entortainment did not materialize, owing to tho des perate frenzy of certain persons tt postpono it, but it will ocour in tho near futuro, as soon as the players of parts have fully rocovcrod from tho grip frenzy. The prinoipal evant of tho wock was tho german given by tho Elks, at their olub houBO, on Thursday even ing, complimentary to Miss Tate, prior to her departure for hor homo iu Houston. Tho Elks never do things by halves and tho ontcrtain ment was in overy way wor thy of the fair guest of the evening. About twenty couples wero presont and indulged in tho german, whioh was load by Mr. R. M. Bain, who introduced somo now and pleasing figuros. Tho favors were vory hand some and unique, have boon ordered from Now York expressly for tho oc casion, In tho large billiard hall was a table beautifully decorated and ladened with dainty viands, a gener ous punch bowl occupiod a corner of tho hall and contained a delicious beverage, a concootion of Mr. W. IT. Cameron, who is famod in the art of mixing. Nothing was omitted that could possibly conduco to tho pleasure of the evening. The guests woro Missos Tato of Houston, Laflarrous and Horndon of Tennessee, Miss Staples of Sherman, and Misses llotan, Goodnob, Pearro, Olive, Oliver, Osa Higginson, Laura Itisher. Messrs. W H. Cameron, B S Castles, M C Park, J R Downs, W C Watson, J S Rotan, John Tscharner, Win Sleeper, Robt Caruthers, F C Connor, Ed Bailey of Houston, Mrs Goo Clark and Mr and Mrs Bain. Mrs. Helen Conger entortainod a number of friends at a progrcsshe euoher party Thursday evening. It was in the nature of a farewell party to Mr. E. W. Franz, who takes his departure for St. Louis Sunday, About ten couples participated in the game whioh was spirited and exciting. Miss Lean Keautc and Mrs. John D. Mayfield captured tho ladies' prizes, and Mr. Berry and W A Poage wero awarded the prizes for tho gentlemen. Refreshments were served at the conclusion of tho games and tho even ing was highly enjoyable to all. Mr. Harry Braswell of this city and Miss Winifred Habicht of Austin were united in marriago at tho homo of the brido on Tuesday, the 20th inst. Tho marriage was quito a sur prise to their many friends hero who knew nothing of it until tho happy eouplo arrive in this oity en route to Missouri. Tho bride will bo remem bered as the charming guest of Miss Womaok, whom she visited last win ter. Tho groom is one of our most popular young men and ho is indeed to be congratulated upon tho prize ho has won. The best wishes of a host of friends follow them.' Invitations aro out to tho marriage of-lDr. R F Minnook of this city, to Miss Tenie Alberta Thomas of San Antonio, on Wednesday, Feb. 3, at 9 o'olook a.m. at the Paino Methodist ohuroh, south. Dr. Minnook and his bride will bo at homo aftor Fob. 12 at 526 North Fourth Stroot. Ono of the events of the coming week will be tho postponod entortain ment of the Histrionics, for tho bene fit of tho King's Daughters' charity fund, Tho night for its presentation has not boon definitely fixed upon, but tho date will bo announced in the daily papers in duo timo, and the in toresting programme, as well as tho worthy object, will undoubtedly draw a large audionce. Thero is a Sorosis Cirolo as well as a Woman's Club among us, and it is doloing into tho ologies and abstenso sciontifio subjoots, whilo tho latter club is chiefly oooupied with lighter literature Tho germ theory and publio hoalth were subjects at a recont meeting of tho SoroBis, and tho mem bers wero as familiar with bacilli and micrococci as their neighbors' new bonnets. What has become of tho Ohataugua circles that formerly flourished among us? Wo havon't heard anything from thorn in a long long time. There is plenty of good material in Waoo for a suooocssful Chataugua cirolo and it is surprising with our proBent frenzy for literary clubsoirolos and classes, that one has not boon organizod. A Chataugua cirolo proporly conducted is yery entertaining and highly bone fioial to its members, and proportion ately so to tho community at large. The course for the prosont soason is ohiefly upon Amerioan history and litoraturo, and patriotism should mako it especially popular. Tho ladies committoo for the World's Fair mot in the board of trado rooms yostorday afternoon to discuss ways and moanB. Mrs. W. L. Prathor has kindly offered tho uso of hor elogant homo for ono evening for tho benefit of tho ladies' fund, and a reception has been arranged to tako placo thero noxt Friday ovening. ThiB will be ono of social ovonts of next weok. Tho Histrionics will givo an entainment for tho ladios' fund at an early dato, also. Tho ladies matinee whist club was delightfully entortainod by Mrs T A Crawford on Thursday afternoon laBt. Miss Ada Rishor will aot as hostess to tho olub on next Thursday after noon. Tho vonni? ladios of our best Jow- ish sooioty gavo a leap year hop com plimentary to tnoir young gentlemen friends at V. M. IT. A. hall last ovon- lng.
