Kind Ever (Slvnn In the Culled Slates.
Washington, Feb. 2U. Tho dinner
given last night by Mr. Andrew Carne
glo to tho President and Cabinet and
tho delegates and officer) of tho Inter
national American Congress was prob
ably tho most superb alfair of tho kind
ever given in tho 1'nited States. Tho
novel and unique arrangements planned
by him were carried out by Mr. William
L. Curtis, the executive officer of tho
International Conferenco. The effects
in floral decoration and tabln service
were superb. Tho walls of the new
square dining room at tho Arlington
Hotel wero literally banked with flow
ers until it looked liko a scene from
fairy land. The table was an exact
circle, thirty-six feet in diameter.
Covers were laid for forty-eight gentle
men. The center of tho table was a
mammoth four-leaved clover of maiden
hair ferns, over which was suspended
a monstrous silver lamp, the brilliancy
of which was softened by fostoons of
sea-weed that drooped into the ferns.
The angles between the leaves of thn
clover were filled with solid masses ol
orchids, tulips and crocuses; there be
ing thousands of blossoms which wero
collected in New Orleans. Mobile, Sa
vannah. I'ensacola, Jacksonville and
other cities of the South, as well as In
tho greenhouses ot Philadelphia, New
York, Newport and Boston.
Tho menu was an unusually slmplo
one. Among thn wines nndchamp.ign"s
served wero "Twehn Apostles," sherry
and some rare old Madeira. Thu menu
was engraved in fine script upon heavy
beveled ldccks of papier-mache. No
French terms wero used. In tho upper
lr ft -band corner of tho block wero thu
inll'als of Mr. Carneglo in two shades
or green, whllo tho uamo ot the guest
wa, by a now and peculiar process,
blown In glass at the bottom. During
tho dinner a .vocal and instrumental
concert was given, instead of tho ordi
nary orchestral music. Mile. Marceda,

Johnson, Mr. Herldou Morooll and tho
Schubert quartet'" gavo tho vocal
numbers; Miss Alice Raymond rendered
with great eltect a cornet bolu; Mr.
