the Pacific Mail Company Marvel ous talcs then ran merrily around promis ing wonderful developments in the com panys adairs The companys past was to be a trillc only compared with the new glo ries and new profits that the Gould regime assured lint somehow or other Uiepre dicted fortunes failed to come Pacific Mail stock was up around SliO si share in the stock market then it has been down in the neighborhood of i3U a share since It is under the circumstances therefore hardly surprising thai sumo of the big stock holders whose original investment was a good beyond the present market value have lately dropped a little of the element of reverence out of their dispositions Voting George Gould now appears to thorn a slightly less important personage than he seemed when his farther was starring him twentyfour months ago Mutterings of accumulating wrath on1 this score have been long heard in streed It was yesterday however that out siders were able to discover that the Gonld contingent intended to back them up with acts They say that George Gould is to be retired from the presidency the Pacific Mail Company C P Huntington is to be the companys controller and Henry Villard is allied with him It is stated on what is practically official authority that a majority of the companys capital stock has already been turned over to the names of Iluntington and Villdrd or their represen tatives This contemplates one of the most Import ant deals of recent years in the financial world Jay Gould and his friends are said to have been caught napping never sus pecting that Messrs Huntington aridVil Jarcl would undertake to capture an ex clusive control of the property There have been few open suggestions that either Hunt ington orVHlarcl was figuring actively in the matter Both have been much out of town apparently devoting themselves toOther and very dillerent affairs which only proves ono more old Stock Exchange axiom that some men are never so close to Wall street as when they are miles George Gould was put into the Pacific Mail presidency largely through the work of one man F Henry Hart New York knows Henry Hart He is a little fel lowphysieally but he is a big man financi ally lie has millions of dollars ancb wears kliiclothcs Ho owns a couple of street railways and rides in a cab It was no fault of Henry Hart that the Pacific Mail market values shrunk He played fair and in the feeling euphony of ihese latter days ho was done in qviotd It is estimated that his loss on Pa ilfic Mail account approximates Through Harts ministrations ViHard and Huntington who have ofliccs in the same Wall street building were brought together The success of the antiGould movement will mean harmony between immense in tor sis represented In the West Northwest and Southwest by the Huntington and Villard enterprises never hitherto having any thing in common Both will gain by this icw deal It is or course not proposed by Huntington to cut oil1 the Pacific Mails im portant San Francisco connections but hero is a special interest in the concessions that it is declared are to be made to Vjllard through the making of an additional Pacific Mail post at This moans

African midnightpicnics and bloodcurdling famil iarity with the razor all this in was once the central grounds of the Nations capital and where tho best society of our iirst reigns of government held theirfash ionable sway Decadence and retrogression seem to have centralized in one spot in Washington and the story of it all can be related in a few thrilling paragraphs Although only a century old Washington is able 10 turn a retrospective glance on a pastthat is rich in romance and story a past beginning in troublous times of the new country jusc succeeding the great struggle from which it had emerged after casting oil the bonds that freedom and embracing in its chronicles the history of a nation Washington is of all other American cities a city of strong and at times disagreeable contrasts A city of magnificent distances it certainly is and thovisitor to tho Capital City who confines himself to tho wide sweeps of perfect avenues and beautiful parks leases sight of the slums and plague spots with which Washington all other cities is infested Of all the dangerous localities there is none in this city so noted for desperate and outrageous acts the now neglected house and grounds of OLD VAN N13SS MANSION a princely home but a short century ago and the resort of tho lowest and vilest of Washingtons lough population The handsom 0 old building of the architecture of the colonial period though built long after the colonies had ceased to exist stands in a beautiful though neglected park just to tho southwest of tho White House grounds It is a building that bears upon every line and angle the imprint of the geiiiusof tho architect to whose individualiiy and skill is due much of the beauty of the statelydomed building that shelters our lawmakers From his hands came the plans and designs of the princely ediiice and under his personal supervision the structure was reared In its time it has sheltered the highest dignitaries in tho land and its walls havo witnessed tho stately revelry of the oldfashioned minuet with presidents and premiers among the dancers Now it is given over to the wild orgies held under the tho Hells Bottom Clam Bake or the Foggy Bottom Herring Where the coy glance of the artless maiden in tho picturesque costume of the irno answered tho bolder looks of some gallant in couth dress and powdered wig low is seen only the black and gleam tig teeth of some negro belle engaged in the of disposing of her fifth glass of Hat oer in the presence of her rough com janion who nervously feels for his ever nesent razor and calculates chance of escaping when the inevitable free fight oc urs it is a degradation for the gods to veep over The history of this old mansion is inalicn ibly connected with the history of Washing 011City Tho mistress of that once happy ionic was the daughter of Davy Burns Obstinate Mr as Washington was vont to call him in many of his letters Burns was the original owner of tho greater part of what is now the City of Washington and at one time raised large and prafitublc crops of corn and wheaton the place whore the Department buildings now stand It may be interesting to the farmers o know that the ground where the Treasury build ing now stands was at that time very pro ductive and there is a record showing that on this spot Farmer Davy raised the largest number of bushels of wheat to the acre of any farmer for miles around Burns had that obstinate disposition which is often characterized as thechief clement of the Scotch nature and when Washington and the rest of the Federal Government wanted to buy his acres and build a city Burns was stubborn and would nor sell All the per suasive force of Washington was wasted on this obstinate Scot On one memorable occasion the discussion had waged for over an hour The President of the young Republic and the owner of the land on which the capital of that Republic was to bo built were seated under one of the shading the Burns cottage and which is still standing Washington tired and heated with argument arose from the rude bench on which he had boon sitting with the remark have been authorized to select a site for the National capital and your farm is part of the site that 1 have selected The city will be built on this ground and on no other and if you will enter into an amica ble agreement you will receive ample com pensation if you will not then the Govern mentwill take your farm and turn it to its own This was an argument too strong for the Scotchman and he entered into an agree ment which made him TIT15 MAN in the section It also enabled him to en dow his daughter the peerless Marcia Burns with all that was needed to make her a belle of the new city By this fortu itious circumstance the daughter of an humble Scotch farmer whose highest hopes would otherwise have been a marriage with sonie hornyhanded laborer and a conse quent life of to wed with one of the brightest lights in the nat ional Her fathers fortune was not neededto enhance her worth how ever for she was known asthe most bcaSti ful and accomplished maiden of all the surrounding towns At her fathers huruble cottage called the leading men of the time and often met in the little one storied house Washington and many of his advisers and counsellors The man that she marrdeq was fitted to hold a place with any many suitors who thronged to her fathers cottage aud her life with him was most happy John F Van iStess member of Congress from New York was married to Marcia when she was 21 of age They lived for a time in the primitive home where Marcia born but when their only daughter had grown toyouthful wpman hood the new mansion was bujlt The cost oS the structtire was a princely sum in those days but the result justified the expenditure mansion yet beautifulin its design and sturdy strength From the coming home from schoolof the young mistress of the a period lived with husband and sn cuiuhou toa illness Hor death was to her mother a shock Too pro at to bo end n rod and her lifo from that time on was largely Riven to works of charity Much of hor life was passed in the old in which she was born and afior axvhilo she passed away Her husband then mayor of Washington sur vived her for many years and during afterlife entertained royally in the stately edilieo on the banks uf the Potoiuae He himself had in time TO follow the absolute law of nature and with his death the downfall of house ro lonjr famed for us sonorous hospitality Then came the de cay and neglect that lias since made the place a byword of scorn and The eyepleasing avenues leading to the man sion and the pretty walks loading hither nml throuuhoui the grounds are overgrown and filled with weedy verhiasio In many spots in the dense jireen of the th ick shrubbery ean be seen a faint gleam of color the presence of a flower that has not been crushed to death by the rank growth around it Here and ihero ean be seen a rude shelter with a counter before it and the pleasing announcement of the brand of beer sold while in other parts of the grounds swings and shooting galleries attest the character of the place The estate is now owned by the heirs of oxOovernor Swirnu of Maryland Of course there is a ghost that frequents the place and the legend further avers that on the anniversary of the death of General Van Xess six hoadkvs horses gallop about the ground Other spirits seem to have frequented the place at some previous thno according to the tradition but the unhal lowed uses to which the place has been put hns driven away all respectable spirits and none arc seen there now when the negro picnic is in full blast and the black bottle circulates with freedom A SLOW SOCIAL SKASOX The past season probably been most conservative in social alTairs that Washington has over had The White House which has always set the in circles when the social season begins has been lively without biug vulgarly gay The President and Sirs Harrison have in a quiet but extremely way entertained more people during the time they have boon in a position to enter tain than any of their predecessors except ing President Arthtir There was a period of weeks when was on the doors of some memoor of the household and of course sadness filled the hearts instead of an inclination to be gay President and Mrs Harrison have enter tained around their private family board somebody at dinner or luncheon almost every day when the door was not closed on account death There have been instances where society people experienced disappointment during the past winter This was owing to the fact that a great many new people that entered life in Washington were unused to etiquette which prevails here It is one of the unwritten rules of ollicial society thatthe ladies of officials must make the first advance and call upon those whom they desire to be classed as their friends I am told of n lady the wife of one of the prominent officials who is keenly disappointed in Washington society When she came here she opened hor spacious parlors ind sat down expecting the society people of the National capital to cluster about her on of her wealth and social position at home She was told by her friends that she must make the first ad vances if she wanted to be anything in so ciety and that no one would call upon her who had not first received a call The lady said that she did not care for the red tape of Washington society and that the only thing required was an announcement in the papers to make he house full on every re ception clay with the best society people She arranged her first reception on a grand scale The announcement was made in the local newspapers her beautiful miuision was a perfect bower of flowers and a glare of gaslight ller dining room could not Jiave been more attractive The lady had about her a bevy of handsome women and girls all bright conversationalists andready to win all strangers who should appear There was but oiio caller at that house on that the wife of an old friend who has lived in Washington many years The hostess was almost heartbroken when called and expressed in vivid language her morti fication at having been passed by without a caller She could not understand why it was till the old friend informed her that no one woman and in fact no one set of women could break down the oldestablished social lines of Washington Jt took the lady al most three weeks to make tip her mind to yield but she did yield A month later she spent almost an entire week calling upon the wivos of private and public When again she opened her par lors for a reception the effect of her work was readily seen The street in front of the louse was filled with fashionable equipages during the entire afternoon and evening Other women now in Washington who vere unwilling to conform to the social re inironients and whose receptions have not jccn a success are unable to pacify them elves but these are the only persons who
