T!:o New Idea cf tire Social Men
New York, Nov. 2#.—-It is getting to be
the ambition of every Ne’.v York woman, as
it lias long been that of every Parisian
dame, to hav e a salon.
To catch a desirable assortment of lions,
to pare their claws, to induce them to roar
gently as auv sucking dove, to knot colored
ribbons in their tawny manes aid to lead
them about like the sawdust procession at
Baniuin’soua more delicate and roses-eented
■scale; this is the new ideal, and social men
The salon proper, that is the political
salon, does not exist in New York. Partly
from the nature of New York politics, and
partly because the woman who could hold
one has not yet appeared. In spite of the
new interest of women in practical matter’s,
even in politics, the woman at whose house
statesmen —supposing statesmen abundant
in New York —could rendezvous, discuss all
sides of a question fairly and without heat,
feel as in the old French days that there
was an open Parliament with a charmingly
int elligent Speaker, whose smites were suffi
cient guerdon lor their oratory: a woman
at whose house politicians could be encour
aged to defend their convictions—or abandon
them, has not. yet been evolved.
The New Y ora salons are literary, musical,
artistic or all three mixed. Polities Is almost
an unknown subject in them.
None of them as yet is very extensive
though several are growing. A New York
salon commonly takes the form of a “Sun
day evening,” and a woman to have an at
tractive gathering every week must be an
agreeable hostess, have plenty of tact, Ire
above jealousy, and have more than an
average share of brains.
THE GATHERINGS THAT COME NEAREST
to deserving the ambitious term of salon
are not the result of lion-hunting. They
have grown of their own accord almost
without knowledge of the woman who is
their centre. They are impromptu, so to
speak, and the pleasantest meeting places
of the city. Miss Mary L. Booth editor of
Harper's Bazar , has a salon of this kind
where one sees the people best worth know
ing in the city. Kate Sanborn, who has a
pretty suite of rooms at the Windsor, is so
■witty and vivacious that witty and viva
cous people gather to her by instinct. Mme.
Demorest’s receptions are rather more of
dress occasions, but are frequented by people
who can write and people who speak and
}>eople who can appreciate other folks who
do these things. Mrs. Martha J. Lamb, of
the Magazine, of American History, is a
delightful hostess, as people who are fortun
ate enough to be her guest know. Mrs.
Croly, ‘ r Jennie June,” and her daughter
Vida have pleasant, “at homes,” where
pleasant people go. Mrs. Laura C. Holloway
lives in Brooklyn and her Sunday evenings
touch a wider circle of human interest than
such gatherings often do. Mi’s. Lillie Dever
eux Blake, the woman suffrage writer and
speaker, is at home to people with ideas, not
all of them, by any means, of the more
radical sort. Mrs. Frank Leslie’s evenings
are cosmopolitan, and include about as
many varieties of people, of the more inter
esting sorts, as there are in the world. Ella
Wheeler Wilcox has not ent rtained in New
York much as yet, but her evenings are
expected to be informal and on a more or
less original plan.
The salon, as I said, is becoming popular,
and a great many women trv to hold an
imitation of one who can’t, 'this leads to
the multiplication of mutual admiration
societies, which of ail stupid ways of enter
taining are about the mast insufferable. It
is for the better success of the cotton and
wool salons of this sort that anew code of
etiruette for the government of lions ought
to be formulated. The lion masculine has
an inconvenient way at inopportune
moments of sulking and refusing to roar, in
sinking contrast to the behavior of the lion
feminine, who on an average is more amiable
and ready to go through her programme of
THE NEW YORK ASSOCIATION
of Collegiate Alumnae held the first of its
winter meetings in the library at Columbia
College last Saturday afternoon. Collect
ively the representatives of the higher edu
cation made a nice looking set of girls.
There were one hundred or more of them,
all in demi-dress, with dainty little bonnets
and pretty gloves They were well groomed,
as horsey New York likes to put it, fresh
and wholesome looking, and very simply
and quietly gowned. Not one in two dozen
wore any jewelry, and there weren’t cosmet
ics enough in the crowd to bring a blush to
the cheek of a plaster of paris angel.
The results of calisthenic training were
evident in the superb carriage of the head,
the erect grace of the figure, and the ease
w ith which every girl walked. They had
mastered the art of locomotion. There
wasn’t a suspicion of a swing or a sidelong
mince to them, and whether gloved or un
gloved they knew just what to do with their
hands. They were a fine set of women
physically, and if girls who don’t go to
school looked half as healthy there would
be a splendid next generation.
There wasn’t a hint of slang and by the
shades of tutti frutti, they wouldn’t have
known what to Jo with gum.
They talked about philanthropy, social
ism and anarchy, and there seemed to be a
good deal of sound political and social econ
omy stowed away in their heads. A number
of thoughtful women who are not “gradu
ates’’ meet with them as guests very fre
quently . Miss Grace H. Dodge, the School
Commissioner, Mrs. Josephine Shaw Lowell,
sister-in-law of the poet, a phalanx of women
physicians, and one or two women dentists
being fairly constant attendants.
MRS. YOUNG, OF FALL RIVER,
has eriven half a million dollars, well, if not
wisely, to build a common schooihouse in
that city. The munificence of the gift, in
comparison with its object, is explained by
the claim that the school, when completed,
will be the finest in the world, and that it
will be provided with a big telescope and a
fine gymnasium. All these things are very
gcod, but it seems to the unprejudiced
observer that a good enough schooihouse,
all things considered, might bo built for a
small fraction of that money, the remainder
of which might be devoted to more pressing
work. Astronomy is a very interesting
study, but one that is hardly likely to be
earned far enough in a public school to
need the use of a big telescope, while a gym
nasium. though a great necessity, needn’t
but how much actual suffering there
exists in the mill district, of which Fall
River is the centre, only those who have
investigated it can know. The Legislature
of Rhode Island was compelled a t'ew years
ago to pass a law compelling married women
who habitually work in the shops to stay at
home at least three weeks when a child is
born. Before that the jxior mothers had
often been driven by actual want to re-enter
the shop with only a few days’ respite, and
the gravest dangers to public health were
the natural result. But the kindly meant
prohibition is sometimes cvatlod, and, where
enforced, often entails as much hardship
through need of ready mo ey as it was de
signed to prevent. The children too ore put
to work so young and kep at it so steadily
that they don’t learn much of writing and
arithmetic to say noth ng of astronomy.
Undoubtedly a $500,000 school is a good
thing, but somehow it doesn’t seem to come

PLENTY OF LIBEL SUITS.
More Fun in New York Newspaper
Offices Than in a Circus.
New York, Nov. 26.—There has been a
heap of fun in the New York newspaper
offices during the past fow days. I say fun,
but it was a sort of grim humor, and it may
prove very sorrowful to the publishers be
fore tho robins nest again. It was not
boisterous fun, but every newspaper man in
town h.as had a good laugh.
The fun consisted in libel suits. Not a
publisher on Newspaper row has escaped.
It seemed as though the watchful managing
editor was off on a holiday and the office
boy was ruiming things. The first shock
came to tho Mail and Express office. It
was iu the form of a badly spelled and hor
ribly written letter from an indignant
father. A paragraph had crept int 6 the
Mail and Express stating that a talented
and beautiful young lady who resides not a
thousand miles from our City Hall had wed
ded a burly negro. Her name was printed
in full, and her beauty and accomplish
ments were dwelt on to the fullest extent.
The newly made husband’s name was given
also, and the item closed by saying that an
indignant father had driven his daughter
from his door forever.
It was a revolting story, to be sure, and
Its publication annoyed the publisher of the
newspaper quite as much as any one else,
for he is a high-toned, dignified gentleman,
who believes in everything except sensation
alism in newspaper writing. A council of
the editors was immediately called, and the
person who furnished the information was
notified by telegraph that if he ever put his
foot in the Mail and Express office again
he would be met by a strong-armed Celt,
who had instructions to hang and quarter
him. The matter was turned over
to the lawyers of the paper and
a meek and humble apology printed. It
was hoped that the irate father
would take the explanation and the apology
in the proper spirit, and would withdraw
his suit, but he did not. He instructed his
lawyers to proceed without delay. As
quickly as the man who furnished the item
could communicate with the office he did so.
He had made a discovery. It was not his
fault that the paper said that the beautiful
girl had become the bride of a negro. He
produced his original manuscript, and lo!
and behold not a word about the husband
being a negro was found in it. The newly
made husband was described as an illiterate
fellow, far beneath his wife in the social
scale: He was said to be a prosperous gro
cer in a negro settlement in New Jersey.
Ah! That was a discovery indeed, then
*a close inspection of the copy revealed the
fact that it was the telegraph editor who
had made the error. He had only glanced
at the manuscript hastily and immediately
concluded that the groom must be a negro
or he would not take his bride to a negro
settlement to live. So without more ado the
item was captioned in this stately and at
SHE MARRIED A NEGRO! *
A CHARMING AND TALENTED YOUNG GIRL WEDS
AN ILLITERATE BLACK MAN’!
Here it became necessary for the tele
graph editor to explain to the publisher.
The interview was painful in the extreme.
“Blast the negro anyhow!” he said, as he
left the awful presence of the publisher. “I
hate negroes! I shall dismiss the colored
woman who does my washing at once!”
What care was exercised in the office for
a day. Every editor and reporter walked
on tiptoe as he passed the desk of the unfor
tunate telegraph editor. His face was a
study and his heart heavy. It was a sad
But the night dispelled the gloom, and
morning came as radiant as a Boston girl
taking her third plate of beans. The air
was crisp and the sun shone brightly. Then
it was that a clever young reporter was sent
to interview a man who had just applied
for a divorce. It was a good interview. It
was highly entertaining and amusing, but
it contained so many misstatements that
the husband wrote to the wife that he was
not responsible for it. The fair lady threat
ened him with a cowhiding, and a big
brawny brother came forward and de
manded an apology from the husband. He
brought husband and wife together, and
they fell on each other’s necks and wept.
The dove of peace spread its wings and the
couple were reunited, the divorce papers
torn up, and they agreed to join issues and
sue the paper for libel!
When the blood fell upon the Mail and
Express office, there was weeping and wail
ing, gnashing of teeth and tearing of hair.
The city editor took a day off and the tele
graph editor joined him in his solitude,
while the poor reporter went over to the
City Hall Park and picked out a bench
upon which the sun shines. He is there
now. He will winter there.
No sadder place could bo found than the
Mail and Express editorial rooms. How
cautious nil the editors and reporters were.
A hundred times each day they walk into
the managing editor's room and submitted
items for his sanction or disapproval.
“In the present state ol' things,” said the
telegraph editor, “it won’t do to take any
big chances. Now here’s an item that says
John Jones, of Norwich, was arrested last
night for rushing the growler.”
“Tut, tut, fhat won’t do,” was the manag
ing editor’s reply.
“Well, how shall we put it?”
“Just change the name and make it John
“But it wasn’t John Smith, it was John
“Oh, yes, of course, but Jones might sue
for libel, don’t you know, and Smith would
not do it, for he would not know which
Smith it was. See? Yes? Oh, of course.
We must give the news, but we don’t care
to revel in too many libel suits.”
At this point the literary editor stuck his
head in the door and sn id he bad been re
viewing a book on “Prehistoric Man” in
“Do you suppose John Sherman will sue
us if we give Prehistoric Man—?”
“Better eliminate tbe word Ohio and in
sert Dakota. We haven’t any readers in
Dakota! Ob, that’s a good way out it, eh?”
And so it went ail day—a gloomy, cheer
less day. But joy came with the evening.
The Mail and Express was no longer alone
in the field of libel suits. The Telegram
printed a lot of cuts of nude figures and
Anthony Comstock, the conservator of
morals, immediately began to protect the
public. While the editors of the 7 elearam
were discussing the situation the Times
printed Swinburne's tragedy, and the
American publishers talked seriously of
pouncing upon the Times for vitiating the
American copyright. On the heels
of this came the annonneement
in the Sun that Pierre Lori I lard
had lost #225,000 at baccarat to Allen
Thorndyke Rice. Lorillard denied it all
and entered a suit for #50,000 damages. Of
course there was a mild circus in the Sun
office, and while this was going on Anthony
Comstock jumped on tho World for saying
that he had struck a small boy and had
used vile langnge. Then Fred Gebhard sued
the Evening Sun tor 850,000 tor railing him
a blackguard. The next day the Herald
contained an expose of some mining frauds,
and the projectors of the mine jumped on
tho Herald with both feet.
And so it has been going on. Every
newspaper office in town has felt the blow
of the aggrieved iu some walk in life. The
only ]>aper that I happen to know of that
has escaped is the Banner of Zion. But no
one knows what a dav mav bring forth.
