Indeed, It looks an If there might b great change In th near fu ture mid Mine of three evrnts may truce their orlnln to one cf tlie Hires gentlemen mho have been a conspicu ous recently. Senator Morrill liven In a ne.it lint mall brick house on Thomas Circle In delightful neighborhood. Just nerrM l the at at the "Portland, occupied by Secretary Morton, while near hy are the German I'-ration, the Italian embassy, nl not far off are the homes of Secre tary Carlisle, the attorney -renoial an I many others of equal prominence. Mor rill's home I j very plain from the ex teilor view but within It is furnished In comfortable, but rot luxurious tyl. There Is large parlor, a sitting room and baric of all Is the dining room, which Is bright and sunny. The furnishings are not In the latest rtyles, hut they are substantial, mostly In dark tints, while In the library we f.nd eery open wood fire and a table Uttered with writing material before th? cheerful Mire. Fenator Morrill has t)"en in the senate for longer un- broken term than that ever recorded li the credit of any oth'r senator llv In, lie was born In 1R which makes him J"t ft this year, pretty old for a mar, who Ih still one of the most labori ous of our statesmen. He was not mar' tied till be was 41 and has Just been enjoying wedlock forty-five years. Mrs Merrill wrt a Mis lt'ith Fwan, of Kutin, a small town about twenty miles from Hoi ton. Her tether was a (lector and there were seven children In the family. It was while visiting at the home of a cousin In Stafford, Ver niort, that she met the senator, and when they were married, be took her to a house far which ho had himself drawi the plans, and which bad taken three years to be completed. Mrs. Morrill comes of an old and dis tinguished New England family, one of her ancestors help Miles Standlsh. the Rttnt Puritan leader. She Is a dcll- c.'its woman, and, being now about 73 years of ege, Is not able to mingle much In social life. There Is only one chil l In the family, young James, who Is private secretary to the senator. Mrs Morrill Is a deeply religious woman and one of strong opinions, and while she SPNATOii MOU11II.U has never been an nUkocato of wo'iinn's auffraire, she Is an ardent admirer of thoM) ladles who are agitating ques tions which tend to the advancement of women. One of the prominent ladles In town tried to get her to enter lulu a campaign aralnst the sufTrauls-U when the movement was first lnaur.iirate.1, but Mrs. Morrill, who Is a woman of public s;ilrlt. refused on the greund Ilia', siie thought that the aKltatlon would result In great good. Fenator Morrill Is a hard worker and The at seven each mornlnc. by tine Is on bis way to the Caplt"! and spends the day In earr.cst bibor.

The or naments on his tuhle are of silver, nnt) among them Is a large Inkstand w hich was presented to him by Senator Quay, Mrs. Allen, wife of the senator from Nebraska, Is not housekeeping this winter, but boardleg at a house J'ist opposite the Capitol. With tho excep tion of l.cr husband there are none of h-T family with her, for all of the children are at the home In Madlton. Mrs. Allen Is a 1'enntylvaiila girl, hav ing beer, born In Warren county, but moved with her family filst to Illinois and then to lnwa, at the litter place meeting her fate In the perron of the fenator. She Is a woman of medium luiK'it. with h:'.iel fjes. dark Irilr, a plt.'iMiiit face and aixalile manners. There Is nothing cf the It'llni- Yi.t about her personality, w'ul.-li l.r quid and retiring, and It Is ca.-Ilv to l, s c.. that her t.iptes lie more In tin direction of home than o! t!;o ili: ical arena. In ti'.l slio tal.es no h.n n ;-,t :i j , . . ; i . tlcl or the rest of the qu-stlot s 11.111 preavnt SKitatlcns, for her whole pi, as tir is centered In her husband and chil dren. While she cuul l enMly be nn.onjj the most prominent leader In social circles at the capital the earis nothing for social pleasures, but j ns.ii-s 1 er tl.i.c quietly at home. Mr. Allen, who Is now one of ths most prominent figures In the Vrt,t as a presidential possibility on the popu list ticket. Is on of the most popular c4 iucet tlslily respected of the ecua- tori. lie Is earnest In his conviction',,,. r'Tf liMP and a man of bonrsty and purpose. lA-lliA 111' lj While the honor Is likely to be his, II . one u at ..irs. Alien is nni auxiout 1 to come Ir. his way, yet there are few who would make more graceful mis tresse of the White House than the wife of the senator from Nebraska. Senator Carter, who Is undoubtedly one of the most coutplctiou Azures to day, has a pret'.y home on the out skirts of the city. It Is on the side ol a high hill, and It new brick house, furnished In modern itjlo Mrs. Carter Is a tall blonde and la tin mother cf two cute children, John, whi is 5, and Hugh, who Is about 3. The '"nrl"! home Ih attractively furnished, the polished floor bring coveied with rugs, and ell the tones of the home being la a light tint. The Cartera are Catholic. Mrs. Carter Is a native ol Washington state, lining been born ne?r the city of Olympln, She hna tak en great Interest In her husband's ca reer and accompanies blin on most ol his campaigning tours through th state One of the most Interesting tblnfs In re.-rnt events Is the klinlerqarten which Is held each day at the WhIW u -e for the rbllilri n of the prealdent attended by many of the tinblei of other prominent people.

Mrs. Cleveland, nl-ter-ln-law to th preiil lent, Is a visitor at tho Whit Hoiife and Is the recipient of much at tention from the ladles In oulclal cir cles. Mrs. 1'errine, the mother of Mr Cleveland, Is also a guerj tit the Exe cutive Mansion.
