WASHINGTON, April 30. (Special Mis
patch to Tho Bee.) Mrs. Alice Roose-velt-Longworth
will, upon her re
turn from Europe, Bet about with
great determination to bring about
a revival of the old French salon in
Washington. Tills is the most ambitious
project which Washington society has un
dertaken in many a day and Mrs. lriK
worth is leadiritf the movement. 1 hear that
gome day the rule in Washington will be
small, si lect functions with only occa
sionally a big crush reception to which all
society is bidden.
This city seems to have the foundation
for a salon. The resident society is cul-
j tured end polished and its cosmopolitan
nature is such as to Imitate the great
social (liters of Europe where the salon
still thrives in some degree.
The foreign bom contingent of the cap
ital society would joyously welcome tire
return of this ancient and classic French
Institution. Indeed, among those who will
assist Mrs. Longworth In bringing it about
is the Countess d'Azy, wife of the naval
attuche of tho French embassy.
Mis. Inz Andt.rson of Boston and Wash
ington, who goes In for llteiature, and Mrs.
Preston Gibson, who dabbles In art occa
sionally, are others Interested in the re
vival of the salon. While the artistic popu
lation of Washington Is not extremely large
this city Is near enough to New York to
make tho Importation of artistic celebrities
a vol y easy mutter.
I should mention Mrs. lierbeit Wads
worlli us another "salon possibility." J
have beard no expression from Mrs. Taft
upon tli0 proposed salon, but 1 daresay
she favors It. It is certain that President
Taft looks with favor upon it.
Mis. leroy Percy, wife of the senator
fioin Mississippi, is fully upholding the
social reputation she enjoyed In the south,
before coming to Washington. Mrs. Percy
is a native of liulsiana. v. her, she was a
member of an aristocratic Creole family.
Sin- possesses great personal charm and
much social tact and will i-hine as one of
the bright soeial HKlils in the senatorial
Mis. John B. Henderson, wife of former
Sinator Henderson, wauls to do for Wash
ington society what Mrs. o. H I. Belmont
and Mrs. Clarence Mackay have done f ir
New York aristocracy in tie way of suf
frage. In brief. Mrs. Henderson wants to
convert up to the "votes for women" stan
dard. She Is very deter nrni d about it. too.
and some of the things she has said about
untl-suffraglsts have been at least unkind.
Mrs. Ellhu Root U the leader of the antis.
but she has disdained to' reply to the
scathing arraignment of Mrs. Henderson.
Those antis are the Jelly fish of society,"
says Mrs. Henderson. "None but the Jelly

The man or woman who signs over his
