YESTERDAY'S GLITTERING SCENE AT THE WHITE HOUSE, The Knln no Terrors for tlie Thous- ands or Callers lit the Executive Man- Uurrlson, lu Inference to Her Sitter's Death, Takes no 1'urt In the I'VjttVll WAKIHNOTON, Jan. Official Washing- 3ti aHsumed Its most formal bearing yester- day ami assisted in the ceremonious exact- ions which long years of custom have sanc- wd as necessary to the observance of a New Year. The rain did not diseourage tho who observe the custom of ex- changing calls. Interest centered at tbe ex- ecutive mansion where the president and ladies of tbe cabinet were to rocoive those in official and social life. The cold, pure white- ness of the exterior of tiie mansion waa in direct contrast with the scene within. There everything was warmth and bi HinllaJt twined in and about the great chan- deliers and depended from the toja of tall mirrors and windows. The nut room was tho oriiy one of tho four public roomi that secured its light from the sun. Gieat spreading palms and tall robber plants were standing In every nook and corner, while the mantels were banked with various plants. Iu the blue room the decorations lent an additioual charm to the beauty of Iho oval-shaped apartment. Tho central chandelier and side lights were shaded with unique effect. The three windows in the back of the room were almost hidden by masses of preon. In tbe east room palms and rubber trees Under the mantels ferns, hyacinths and ice plants were banked. In tbe red room where the diplo- matic corps assembled, and in the green room tbe decorations were tbe same, differing only in the substitutions of Cowers. Eleven o'clock was the time set for tbe re- ception to begin, but it was past the hour when the diplomatic corps, tbe members of tbe marine and international conferences had assembled. The drizzle with which the morning opened had turned into rain. Out- side tbe White House a crowd of wbite- coated coachmen sat on their carriages. In the vestibule of tho mansion the red-coated musicians ot tho Marine band were seated ready for i he signal to play. At a signal to Professor Sousu the band struck up "Hail to the and those assembled in tbe cor- ridor outside the blue room saw tho presi- dential party descending the stairs. Leaning on tbe arm of the president waa Mrs. MuKee, who took the of hnr mother. Mrs. Harrison decided not to take part in the re- ception, on account of tbe recent death of her sisier, Mrs. Hcott Lord. Mrs. McKou wore a Martha Washington dress of while armure silk, princess back and train. Following after tbe president and Mrs. McKeo came the vice president and Mrs. Morton. Then came Secretary Blaine witti Mrs. Stephen Klkius, and after them came the other members of the cabinet. When the blue room was reached tbe president and Mrs. McKee took thoir places at the head of the receiving line, which was composed of Mrs. Morton, Mrs. Windom, Mrs. Miller, Mrs. Wanamaker, Mrs. Noble, Mrs. Tracy and Mrs. Rusk. The invited guests were Mrs. Logan, Mrs. Hale, Mrs. Gor- man, Mm McMillan, Mrs. Hiscock, Mrs. Platt, Mrs. Pugb, Mrs. Quay, Mrs. Cockerill, Mrs. Reed, Mr. Keed, Mrs. Burrows, Mrs. Butterworth, tbe Misses Blaine, and Miss Simpkins of New York, the Misses Wauamaker, Misses Halstoad, Miss Clover, Miss Rusk, Miss Harlan, Miss Dram, Mrs. Ernst, Mrs. J. V. L. Fmdlay, Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Harris, Miss Grosvenor, Miss Wilson, Mrs. Elkins, Mrs. Charles Emory Bmilh, Miss Grace Davis, Miss Halford, Mrs. Wilmerding, Miss Tracy, Mr. and Miss Rans- dell, Mrs. Carey and Miss Proctor. After the receiving party had taken their places the reception proper began. The members of Iho diplomatic corps headed by Baron through the blue room and Into the east room. The guests, as they ap- proached the president, were presented by name, Major O. II. Ernst, U. B. A., acting as master of ceremonies. The uniforms of most of tbe members of the corps shone with renewed brilliancy under the glare of the gas. Then came the members of the inter- national conference, a majority of them dleased in conventional dress suite. The marine conference members came next. The members of the Venezuelan claim commission completed this segment of the program. The chief justice and associate justices of the supreme court, the judges of the United States court of claims, and the judges of the supreme court of the District of Columbia were announced liter a few minutes' intermission. Chief Justice Fuller shook hands with tbe president and tbe others, and became so fascinated with the scent that he went behind the line. After the judiciary came a number of senators and reprsentatives. They did not attract much attention on account of the plainness of their dress. Neither did the commissioners of the District of Columbia and a few ox ministers of the United States who came with the con- gressional party. By this time tbe east room was well filled with diplomats, congressmen and others. Ladies were plenty. Here stood a member of the diplomatic corps in resplendent uni- form talking to a member of tho Pan Ameri- can congress, attired in full dress, while just beyond were a couple of army officers chat- ting with a grim looking justices, and the lady thnt clung to his arm. Tho officers of the army and nuvy and tho marine were due at nnd were promptly on time. Mnj. Gen. Sohofleld, with an orange scarf across his breast, walked past tbe line at the bead of the bureau chiefs of the war department, each clad In the uniform to which his rank entitled him. Adjt Gen. Kelt on and Gens. McKeever, Rochester, Benet, MacFeely, Casey and Col. Barr, with officers of the Third artillery, the Sixth cavalry and a num- ber of those on special duty in this city con- stituted the army contingent. Admiral Porter did not head the navy. Ht sent his regrets and allowed the bureau chiefs of the navy department to represent him. The naval representation was com poaed of Commodores Ramsey, Brown, Mjll- ville, White, Secard and Wilson, and a num- ber of officers ttn special duty in Washington. Col. MacCouley beaded tbe marine corps officers. With the passing of the marine corps the crowd in the east room began tt- thin out, and some of those who helped tr -receive in the blue room took their departure Secretary Blaine with Mr, and Mrs. Em mons Blaine, Mrs. Elkins, Miss gimpkins ol Hew York, nnd James G. Blaine, Jr., wen among those wbo departed early. At noon the regrets of the secretary of Bmithsonlan institution, civil service com missiotiers, interstate commerce commission era, assistant secretaries of departments assistant post master, solicitor general, assist ant attorney general, commissioner of labor heads of bureaus of the several departments and the president and oflli-ers of the Colum bla Institute for the and Dumb wei i announced. Only fifteen minutes veri taken up in receiving these. Following came the veterans of ihe Mexican wor, tbi G. A. H., the Loyal Legion, and members ol tbe Oldest Inhabitants' association of tut District of Columbia. They were disposed of in twenty minutes, and at tbe gen- eral reception of citliens began. Tbe crowd was unusually smaJl on account of the rain, and at 1 30 o'clock, forty minutes before the time set for the close of the reception, the president shook hands with the last comer. After keeping the doors closed ten minutes the president ordered them opened and kept them open until 2 o'clock, the regular hour for closing. When the doors were again closed not more than 2UO additional callers had appeared. Promptly at 2 o'clock the outside doors were closed and a few minutes later the pres- ident, Mrs. McKee and those of the receiving party that remained went to luncheon. The reception was the 100th held on New Years day by presidents, of the United Stalp-i. Mrs. Morton was tho flrst wife of a vice president nho has assisted at receptions at the White House on New Years day for the past sixteen years. Tim Vice President'! Kucnpliun. WABFIINUTOX, Jan. 2.

The vice president and Mrs. Morton received tho guests in the library. The reception Itt'Kun at noon and continued until after 2 o'clock. At times the number of callers made the spacious parlors uncom- fortably crowded. HON. HENRY R. PIERSON DEAD. The Able Statesman and Scholar Passes Away After A Hrlef IllneM. NEW Yrmic, Jan.

Fifty-eight others, from whom oil means of escape bad been cut off, were gallantly rescued by the attaches of tho Institution and members of the fire brlgnde amidst the most Intense excitement and at great risk. Two ot the matrons effected their escape by sliding dnwn a water pipe. They reached the ground uninjured. (Some of the boys, emboldened by tbe exumple sot by the matrons, escaped m the sauie manner. The superintendent of the school exhibited great bra very and repeatedly dashed through the flames returning each time with the al- most inanimate form of some youngster. The school contained in COO pupils.

Boy Hero Raves Miiny Will Probably Apologize. LONDON, Jan. of persons, impelled by curiosity, have visited tho scone of the fire in the building of the Forest Gato pauper school and tho police and attendants have betm kept busy in their en- deuvors to retain sufficient clear space wberelu necessary work might be done. The school wiis filled with boys who hud been committed to its care because of their incor- rigable habits, and altogether the iinnaLua were of a character from which Jittlo disci- pline or obedience might be expected in mo- ments when both were imperative. As a rule, however, the boys yielded to the direc- tions of their superiors and to this fact is due the safety of scores who otherwise would have perished. Ot the twenty-six who lost tbolr lives only two were burned to death, the others having been suffocated in their bods. Many of the latter were aroused with the rest, but Lecanio stupefied with the smoke and crawled buck to their cnu to die. The bero of the occasion was a boy wbo acted in the capacity of monitor in tbe fatal ward, himself a boy whose vicious habits had made him an inmate of the institution. Through his efforts many boys were literally driven from the burning building and ho ceased his work ot rtwcue only when ho liirn- self was driven out by tho flames. Several of bia companions he dragged, unconscioun, out of the windows, while others be carried into the air in hia arms. Persons in official circles profess to see in- dications that Portugal has decided to apolo- gize to England for Serf a Pluto's nets, and especially his conduct in hoisting tho Por- tuguese flag on British protected territory and causing the British flag to be hauled down. It is conceded that if Portugal shall do this England can Insist on nothing further without incurring the suspicion of tho powers that the ostensible object of her quarrel with Portugal is entirely foreign to tho renl concerning which some explanation should be forthcoming. The Freeman's Journal states that it has learned from excellent authority that Lord Salisbury has in contemplation an early dis- solution of parliament and an appeal to tho country on the government's new Irish issues. The German government has completed the compilation of an African white hook which it will lay before the reichttag on the reassembling of that body. The book, H is said, contains documents of great importance which have not hitherto been alluded to in the press, if indeed their existence wiis known. The editor of tho St. Petersburg NOVM Vremya, who has just returned homo from a visit to Pwth, declares that the Hungarians are Russia's most valuable allies. A BIG DEAL PENDING.
