Gossips of tlio I'lnco Talk of Fornlcn
Minister "nml Slrli."
Washington, July 25. In tlio dog
days gossiping Washington lias fow boh
utors nutl other public men and their
families to talk about, nnd so it turns it9
attention to tliu poor foreign ministers,
their wives nnd attaches. American
curiosity, irroverenco and jest hnvo
driven one poor follow, tho Persian min
ister, out of tho country. Tho Persian
minister on tho street was a fow short
weeks ago one of tho sights of tho capi
tal city. Small boys surrounded him
iind dogged tits footsteps. They mado
life in tho open air bo miserable that ho
bocamo very much of a recluse. Sir
Julian Pauncefote, tho British minister,
POOIt ailOOLY KHAN.
on tho otlior linnd, actually enjoys theso
jittlo attentions so characteristic of tho
Americans. Sir Julian is a brcozy old
fellow himself, nnd likes nothing better
than to take a party of his young men
out to tho races, to tho thentro or n
gamo of baseball.
Tho customs nnd manners of tho peo
plo are nil a great study to him, nnd ho
ilocsn't appear to caro a whit if tho peo
plo staro at him and talk about him
within easy car shot. Ho astonished
everybody n fow nights ngo by going bo-
hind the scenes to call on tho summer
opera queen, nnd when he wns nt tho
circus, shortly after his arrival hero, ho
acted liko n big boy out for n good timo.
Ho actually indulged in red lemonado
nnd peanuts, nnd when tho concert ticket
Boilers enmo nround ho bought a ticket
for every mombcr of his company. They
eat in their seats till tho last falso noto
of tho "concert" had died nwny, and
wcro even then loath to go home. Sir
Julian has seen enough of baseball to
cnablo him to tell when tho home club
is knocking out runs, nnd with a local
prido and patriotism that reflect great
credit upon his catholicity of spirit, ho
applauds tho good plays of tho Washing
ton club nt every opportunity. Sir Julian
is what tho boys call "n trump." IIo is
on Englishman who knows how to mako
a joko nnd how to tako one. IIo is in
clined to bo tho least bit unconventional,
nnd Washington can scarcely contain it
self while, waiting tho arrivnl of his fam
ily and tho throwing open of tho legation
house for tho social season.
Washington peoplo aro nlso eager to
got into the housooccupied by tho Corean
lad I os. Society in tho capital is nothing
if not curious, especially whore foreign
ministers nnd their families aro con
cerned. Tho mule members of tho Corcan col

fond of both riding and driving, but tho
ladles aro rarely or never seen. Gossip
has it that theso interesting women pass

This is u lazy sort of llfo, but Corcan la
dies aro accustomed to seclusion and
don't mind it. Besides thoy nro having
great sport with an American sowing
machine, which occupies their attention
eovoral hours dally. Thoy aro. too, pa
tiently studying English and endeavor
ing to maator tho uso of a fow pretty
phrases for uso during tho approaching
"season," for these Corean ladies hnvo
in their qulot way organized a llttlo re
bellion against tho traditions of thoir na
tivo land and determined to seo some
thing of society's whirl in tho American
capital nuxt winter.
Tho departure of Hadji Hassein Ghooly
Khan for Persia caused tho shedding of
no tears in tho Corean houso on 0 street.
In fact, the round faced Corean women
aro said to hnvo clapped their hands in
Cloo, for did not tlio august nnd uustero
Ghooly Khun onco biiuo tho Coreans un
mercifully? The thin skinned Oriental
affected disdain of tho Chinese and Core
ans, deeming them much inferior to him

men of culture nnd iutelllgonco thoy

The Coreans appear to bo very scnslblo
men. Though tho transition from thoir
country to this must bo like that which
a backwoods boy oxporionces on flrbt go

themsolves nor tako tho opposite oxtromo
of vulgar ostentation. Thoy nro not nt
All sensitive to tho curiosity hunting
stares with which they aro ovcrywhero
met, nnd tako no nottco of tho smiles
which follow them as they go nbout tlio
city. Had Ghooly Khan Imitated tho
example set him by theso neighbors ho
would have saved himself much mortifi
cation of spirit.
The Coreans nro nmong tho fow for
eign residents who do not keep their own
stables. If tho two young nnd pretty
Corcan women now horo wcro at homo
in Seoul their servants would carry them
through the streets In n tolg-hio, or
ladles' chair, swung on poles nnd caro
fully curtained. Hero thoy tako tho com
mon every day American hansom or
coupe. I)y such convoynnco thoy hnvo
boon to tho Capitol, tho museum, tho
Washington monument, tho phntogtn
phcr's nnd on mnny evening journeys over
tho pretty country rends in which Wash
ington's surrounding abound.
Tho handsomest onuipago In "Washing
ton Is that owned by Count d'Arco Val
ley, tho German minister, whoso family
has rvecntly received such n great shock
by tho sulcldo of a daughter near Berlin.
Tho count nnd countess nro now out of
town, enjoying, ns best thoy can under
tho circumstances, tho great American
custom of "summoring," but their coach
and chasseur, which created such n sen
sation last winter, nro still hero. Tlio
coach wns drawn up before tho stato de
partment tho other day, nnd from it
alighted Mr. Mumm Von Schwnrzcnsteln,
secretary of legation. Mr. Mumm Von
Schwnrzcnsteln, though a. learned nnd
cstimnblo gentleman, is, after nil, a tncro
clerk, but as ho was on business with tho
state department, tho German notion of
etiquette required him to uso tho lega
Tlio footman, who descended from tho
box to open tho carrlago door for tho
secretary, was so gorgeously attired that
n crowd collected nnd stared nt him for
hnlf an hour. Tho chasseur woro gaudy
livery, resplendent with gold and lace.
It must hnvo been n very uncomfortable
suit for a hot day, ns a dark blue cloak
of broadcloth, with a doublo row of gilt
buttons down its front, enveloped the
cntiro figure. But tho chasseur sat im
movable and apparently imperturbablo
in tho broiling sun, whero there wns
scarco enough breezo to stir the feather
plume nnd cockndo of tho German colors
which decorated his tall bluo chapeau.
That which most attracted tho nttcntion
of tho curiosity hunters wns tho hand-
boiuo sword worn nt his right side, de-

pendent from heavy rows of gilt cord
caught across the breast from his left
Bhouldcr. When this gorgeous footman
first made ills nppenranco last winter,
tlicro was a disposition to criticlso him
as a piece of ostentation.
Tlio sword was particularly puzzling,
and self appointed critics gravely dis
cussed tho question: "Can a lackoy wcui
a sword?" ftut on second thought the
critics have concluded to let Count d'Arco
Valloy's yager nlone, thoy having discov
ered that while tho employment of uni
formed chasseurs is an innovation In
Washington it Is an established custom
In Berlin, St. Petersburg, London, Paris,
Madrid, Vienna and Rouio.
Tlio Chineso minister and his lively
young men aro always being talked
about. If hnlf tho stories told of them
wero truo, and tho young emperor of
China was much of a stickler for tho
proprieties, probably thcro would soon
bo a shaking up in tho celestial legation
at tho western capital.
Theso young Orientals aro extremely
fond of driving about tho city, and may
bo met any ovening on tho quiet country
roads or in tho Soldiers' Homo grounds,
nearly always accompanied by young
ladies. Tlio penchant of tho Chinese
attaches for American ladies is ono of
tho-romarkablo phases of lifo in tho for
eign colony, and as long as thcro is any
number of young women, entirely re
spectable, but n llttlo fndiffercnt to pub
lic opinion, who aro willing to exchange
smiles for carringo rides, suppers and
boxes at tho opera, tho gossipers may bo
expected to goon wagging their tongues.
Tlio Chineso legation Is near Dupont ctr
clo, and hero the gay young Asiatics nrc
often found cracking jokes with nuree
maids and taking lessons in American
coquetry. So common and ridiculous is
this practico that peoplo living in that
part of tho city now often say to one
another: "Let's stroll dijwn by tho circle
and seo how tho Chineso attaches are
getting along with tho nurso girls."
