Philadelphia Times : The Nebraska
senators , Van Wyck and Mandcrson , nro
also brilliantly represented in the sera-
torinl circle. Mrs. Van Wyck was Miss
"
Kntu llroadhcad , of MHfonl" . I'd. , dausli-
tor of Colonel John H. Broadhcad , fanner
and merchant , of Pike comity and of the
eastern branch of the colonial and revo
lutionary family of that name in thn Key-
htiino commonwealth. During the time
that Mr. Van Auken represented the Pike
county ( Pa. ) district in congress , Mr. Van
Wyck represented the Orange county ( N.
V. ) district , which stretched along the
opposite shore of the Delaware. During
the tay season tit the capital Mrs. Van
Auken wai in the habit of having her sis
ter , one of the belles of northeastern
Pennsylvania , assist her in her social
duties at Washington , where Miss Kato
became a great favorite. Upon one oc
casion Mrs. Van Auken and her sister
worn present at a crcat reception given
bv Postmaster General Handall. The
member from "New York beyond the
waters of the Delaware was also present ,
nnd during the evening hail the honor of
tieing introduced by Mrs. Van Auken to
her Hister , Miss Kale Hroadhead , of Milford -
ford , Pa. The futo of the member from
Now York was Bcaled. Acquaintance
rapidly blossomed into Jove mid
love uloomed into matrimony , and
Miss Kato Brondhe.ad , of Milford ,
Pa. , liecame Mrs. Charles H. Van Wyck ,
ot Middlelown , N. Y. , nd on March 4 ,
1B31 , went a step higher in thu social af
fairs of the nation's capital as Airs. Sen
ator Van Wyck. This charming daughter
of Pennsylvania's county of Pike for six
years has been one of the ornaments of
the senatorial social circle. The inter
ruption of the senator's own succession
lor another term will deprive Washing
ton society oi olio of Its most popular
ladies.
Thu wife of the junior senator from
Nebraska is another of the particularly
attractive married ladies of Washington.
Iklra , Mandorson was Airs. Rebecca S.
Blown , of Canton , O. Her father , A. S.
Brown , was one of the prominent la > vycrs
of that stale. Her grandfather , John
Harris , , who settled in Ohio in 181-1 , was
an influential whig politician , and inado
a vigorous speech in the convention at
Philadelphia in 18-13 in favor of Millard
Filhnoro for vice president , which con
tributed largely to ids nomination. Mrs.
Mandorson , who is very beautiful anil
dresses elegantly and in excellent taste ,
taKe.s great'pleasure in giving happiness
to her lady friends by inviting them to
Washington as her guests during the
season.
Society Women.
The last week before Lent was duly
crowded with the traicties that usually
precede the season of penitence. Omaha
is becoming so metropolitan in the num
ber und nature of its onlorlainmeuts that
to lee : in the ring involves a waste of
nervous force that few are able to sustain
without sacrificing for society in ore than
can posAibly bq gained from it. The
round has been so unbroken this winter
that in many cases the female head of
the house has required to be introduced
to her family about once a week , when
Sunday necessarily brought a cessation
in the dizzy whirl and gave the masculine
BKio some show for recognition. The
usual order of things seems to bo re
versed in this progressive period , anil in
stead of the husband doing the dissipat
ing for the family , the wives are having A
monopoly of it ami seem to take to it nat
urally. This is a much more philosophic
nnd lady-like method of asserting the
rights of women than aspiring to the lec
ture platform and getting the reputation
of being1 stronir minded. The society
woman is usually pretty deep with all her
apparent artles.sncss and fcho knows bat
ter than to make herself ridiculous and
frighten away the men witli an assump
tion of authority , but she nevertheless
rules her domain with suave , though re
lentless , persistency and revels in her
Mjvoreignly the more that it is gained
without apparent ellbrt. Only men who
huvu been made sadder and wiser by
means of matrimony can bear witness to
tbe snares and pitfalls of the sweetly sub
missive feminine character.
The Kvcnt of the " \Vcclr.
The Patti concert was an epoch that
crowded n51 social happenings to the
wall. Anticipation was so intense that
no one felt like settling down to ordinary
gaieties until the excitement had subsided.
A few are privately taking themselves to
task for having been berne along with
the current , and are slightly embittered
over the concessions that now nnd then
liavu to bo paid to fashion. That the
diva was universally admired goes with
out saying , but not many would go
through the discomfort of that night
again oven for the queen of song. The
jamming , reckless crowd , the stilling at
mosphere , the uncomfortable scats and
the plagno of intervening bonnets , made
thii niu ( of the concert a welcome release.
Women who had the slightest rccard for
the Illness of things , not to speak of the
convenience of others , removed their
bonnets , but a largo sprinkling of them ,
with the relinemcnt of cruelty that is
pre-rminentlr the attribute of perverse
womankind , kept their heads covered
and caused moro profanity than six
weeks of fasting can blot out. A One man ,
ntter vainly ro < iuusting un usher to have
nil ollunding lint removed from before
him , stood up for the rust of the evening ,
and his seat was appropriated by another
person. There ought to ba a stringent
law ngainst the wearing of bonnets in a
cnncml hall , to reach llioso who are too
bolKsh to to influenced by motives of
consideration for others or to adopt any
fiiion innovation until their "tet" hassano-
lioneil it ,

CHICAGO IMtonUCK MARKET.
CnicAoo , Fed. CO. [ Special Telegram to
the Bii'.l There Is haully anybody left In
the provision pit who believes tliat this is an
Armour pork deal. A forlnlghl BRO opinion
\\as all ono way , and it wns unanimous that
nobody buf Armour could uosslbly put pork
up from SS.OOtoSU.OO. A week ace there
nppcaicd a division of unanimity and there
were as many \\lio believed that the pork
deal was Ream's anil Jones' us that the
manipulation Mas Armour's. Now , with
May pork almost 810.00thero aio very few in
deed who lieliovo the coiner onoof Armour's.
It Is getting to be bellfi\cil that the clique Ims
not ahleKer man In than N. It. livnm , and
that when Nat Jones , N. U. Ream and Leo
pold .Bloom are nnmed theto arc no others to
bo Included among the engineers of thn pork
squeeze. That It Is a clever manlDulalion
nobody denies. Ream and Jones \\erc slnlk-
1 UK uliotit Uie piovlsiou croud miiltoilnR
about "Armour's unholy practices" until
they really pot Ihe crowd lo belleui
tlmt their ImlliHinlion was riditeoiis.
Admirers of the latter of those two operators
were for a long while holding up their hands
and assevciatlns ; that "Heam was not that
kind of a fellow , " but this docs not KO any
lonerr. The squeeze Is Ream's anil Jones'
and Bloom's , and the shorts must suear at
them. Thu point Is now , can the clique soil
the slufT nud cot the piolits In Right safely In
Its pockets ? When Ciulnhy and the other
members of Hie Ilttlo synilicato sold 1,000,000
bushels of wheat under TSe yestordav they
explained tliulr sales in this way : . If the
Clnclnnsti clique does not succeed in corner-
Inj ; May wheat the price will no because of
their failure a good deal lower than If the
effort had never been mnile , Now how ean
May wheat be successfully cornered ? The
rule iimkes winter wheat deliverable on con-
Iracls and 3,500,000 bushels oC winter wheat
can bo cot nt St. Louis for a less pnco oven ,
although it Is a butter grudo than spring 7\'o.
2 at Clilcaio. All that It would cost
there would bo the freight. There nro
4,000.000 bushels of wheat at Mil
waukee and 10,000.000 bushels at
Dnlulli and 7fiOO,000 bushnls nt Minneapolis
All this wheat Is tributary to tills market. 1C
there Is a corner here e\ cry bushel of wheat
In the country , winter as well as sprlne , can
bo biunglit here. It Is a mure question ot
freight. That wasn't the case In the days
when Armour and Handy nml MeOeochand
George C. Walker and N. K , Fairbanks ran
their snccusbtnl deals here. In part an ad
vance of 10 cents was scared at the very
opening , \ \ henMay wns iinnly held at
10.021-5 , and it soon touched S10.15. A linu
but nt the same time steady tone prevailed in
wheat nnd coin. The former o ] > cned nt
? SB'c and the latter at ! 5S c nnd both stayed
almost exactly where tlmy opened. There
was not enough stuff for sale to depress
pi ices nor sufliclciit burin ? orders on the
lloor to brini : out any decided advance.
Pork continued on up to S10.20. theic not
being very much for sale.VhoU wns
fairly bought br local scalpers
but kept very steady ninund 7SJ
078 Vc. Corn nicked up during the
lirit hour to S ( S % c. The regular dispo
sition to clear up tiade over Sunday was an-
parent everywhere. As the session advanced
ndcaithof news nffucllnc values was veiy
noticeiiblo in pork. Thuro svns inixcllcallv
nothing else talked about. May icnched
510.20 , but failed to remain there owing to
the absence of either outside or local ciders ,
lly noon May had reacted to SU.07ltf ! bid , but
wns linu under light offerings. Tlio talk is
for 100,090 hogs at the ynids next week ,
which means light enough receipts to attract
some attention nnd doubtless exert moro or
less of inlhiiiiicii on the speculative miulct.
Practically nil that heat hulls had to console
themselves with was the prospect of u de
crease in the visible Monday In the neighbor
hood of 1,030 , ( 00 biiblifk. Locally there was
no trade calculated toattrnct imy attention.
Once during the morning May got ns high as
T.VsC'C7b e nnd ( ell Iaterto7br > , ( i47si4'e , not bc-
caubo it was beared * but because U met with
no support nt all. Nobody evinced anv dis
position to trade nnd by noon half of tlia
regular operators had either deseitcd the pit
altogether or were sitting around idle nnil
permitting the market to look out for Itself.
