"WASHINGTON , D. C. , Dec. 17,1S83.
Though "the season" in the official
social circles of the capital docs not
open until the first of January , there
have been a few informal receptions ,
etc. , and on some days the door-steps
of certain residences have been pretty
well littered with the little tissue slips
dropped from packages of. visiting curds.
It must be an awful bore to be the wife
of an official and receive this stream of
callers on certain days , yet the ladies
seem to like it and are even more am
bitious than their husbands to occupy
the positions placing them high in the
social scale. There being no Mrs. Ar
thur in the White House , and Senator
Anthony , who is to be President of the
Senate , and really Vice President , be
ing a bachelor , Mrs. Carlisle , the wife
of the new Speaker , will occupy the po
sition of society-leader this winter. At
all official dinners Mrs. Carlisle , like
Mrs. Keifer last year , will rank her
husband , and if the President is present
will take the position corresponding to
his. This official etiquette seems very
strange outside of Washington , but
here where so many guests at enter
tainments are official it is absolutely
necessary that there should be some rule
of precedence , or else there would be
bitter jealousies. At u dinner the old
est Senator in point of service takes
precedence of all other Senators pres
ent , even though he may be the dullest
and most uninteresting one present. In
the same way the Members who have
served the longest take precedence of
the younger ones.
Mrs. Carlisle is a woman who will
grace her position. She is a Kentuckian -
ian , her father having at one time been
Mayor of Cbvington , and she inherits
the splendid physique for which Ken
tucky belles are famous- She is a
blonde in complexion , with blue-gray
eyes , and a 5111x2 as lithe as a young
girl's. It is difficult to realize that she
is the mother of two grown sons > She
is dignified , but unassuming in manner ,
loyal to her friends and kind to every
one. Her great faith in her husband's
success was well illustrated in her cool
confidence during the Speakership con
test. No one showed less excitement ,
and whenever the subjectTras broached
to her she said calmly : "I am just as
certain of his bejng Speaker as I am
that I'm alive. Of course no one can
beat John. He has never been beateu
yet when lie sra a candidate for any
Even had Senator Edmunds remain
ed President of the .Senate Mrs. Ed-
muads would not have taken her place
as society leader , as she is in mourning
for a daughter. The President's .house
will be unusually gay this 'winter , at is
-aid. 33rs. McElroyoT Albany , the
President's sister , will be here wi u her
beautiful daughter to do the honors
there. They say Mr. Arthur is remark
ably fond of music , though the stories
.about his banjo flaying and jig dancing
.are not quite .true. One of his friends
saye .that even a well-tuned .hand organ
.has charms for ttlie President , and re-
