AND THE WORK HE PERFORMS.

EYom tlf .Veto York Sun.
Washington, June 11. —There is no man
living who exercises a greater power in the
administration of the affairs of this govern
ment, scarcely excepting the President him
self, than Daniel Lamont, and I don't be
lieve if you were to search the whole popu
lation over you could not tiud one better
qualified to fill the position he holds. If
Presidents’ privave secretaries were to be
made to order, Dan Lamont would make a
good model. He is cool, wary and alert;
he is judicious, diplomatic and deliberate;
he is patient, yet he is prompt; he can put
up with a smooth bore who must be toler
ated as long as anybody could, and he can
bounce out one who need not be listened to,
with skilful alacrity.
A gentleman who was about the execu
tive mansion at Albany a good deal between
the time when Cleveland was elected and
inaugurated tells me that he set in
the back part of that house, and in
voluntarily overhead a conversation between
the President elect and a gentleman who
was very deaf very tedious and had the
lrest of intentions. Thus adviser had been
instructing the President-elect as to his duty
for an hour or more while my friend was
waiting without, hardly stopping to draw
breath, when Daniel Lamont passed
through the room. The President glanced
up at him with a sigh of relief, and in an
undertone which the deaf man could not
, “Dan, can’t you rescue me from this old
rooster; he has almost talked me to death i”
“Introduce me,’’ which ceremony being
performed, he steered the bore over to the
other corner of the apartment as skillfully os
an angler would snare a trout, and in less
than five minutes was shaking hands with
him on the front steps and thanking him for
the honor of the call.
A man who can do that sort of thing
without giving offense is very handy
around the White House, where more bores
go than visit any other place on the conti
nent. The President appreciates the use
fulness of his private secretary, and recog
nizes it by paying Col. Lamoiit as much
money out of his own pocket as he receives
from the government, which is 83,500 a
year, so that his compensation is very near
ly as much as that of a Cabinet officer.
Their coming together was an accident.
Till Mr. Cleveland was elected Governor of
New York Col. Lamont was a reporter of
the Albany Argus. During the campaign
he acted as Secretary of the State Commit
tee, and when Mr. Cleveland was getting up
his first message to the Legislature he asked
for someone who was well informed on
State affairs to assist him.
Everybody agreed that Dan Lamont
would be as able an assistant as could be
found, and so he went to Buffalo and re
mained there three weeks with the new
Governor, hunting up statistics for him,
looking after his correspondence, and doing
all sorts of jobs of a confidential and offi
When Gov. Cleveland was inaugurated
he complimented Lamont by appointing
him to a position on his staff, which had no
salary attached to it, but carried with it
the honorary rank of Colonel, and that is
the way he got his military title. The new
Governor had never used a private secre
tary, and said he Aid not want one, but he
had not been in the executive mansion a
week before he was totally swamped.
Then, for the second time, Lament was sent
for to help him clear awav the accumula
tion of business: but it would not stay cleared
away, and so Lamont found himself in
stalled in a position he had not sought,
which had not been offered him, but into
which he had been hustled by circum
stances. It was only to be temporary, the
service he was performing, but since that
day the Pi’esideiit has scarcely been out of
sight of Dan for a day except once, and
that was when off on his bridal trip. Even
then he sent for Lamont before the week
was over. No President ever gave more
full and free confidence to hissecretarv than
is intrusted to Lamont. Mr. Cleveland has
not a secret from him. He even employed
the genial Daniel to do his courting, and
couldn't have had a better agent in this ca
By the time Lamont reaches the White
House from his home on H street, four or
five blocks away, the President has finished
liis breakfast, read the morning papers and
is ready for his day’s work. Lamont goes
to his side at once, and the two sit down to
gether over the morning’s mail. There are
usually a hundred lettered’ so requiring tho
I’l-esident’s attention, and after reading
them over he directs what the answers, if
any, shall be. Then there are other official
subjects of pressing importance to be
looked after, and the work of the day to be
laid out. By this time the President’s call
ers have begim to arrive, and while he is
disposing of them Col. Lamont has a room
full of people to see. They come on almost
every errand that can be conceived of. One
wants a foreign mission; another thinks
some official of the government has treated
him unjustly; another has a claim pending
before the "Commissioner of Pensions, ana
thinks a note from the President would se
cure immediate and favorable action; an
other has been granted a. patent for some
new labor-saving machine, and would like
to show it to the President in order to get
from him a certificate of its utility. There
are usually a number of poor women who
have been discharged from government em
ployment. or whose husbands or sons have
neon dismissed; women whose sons have
enlisted in the army or navy, and who have
come all the way to Washington to get the
President to order their discharge, or the
haves or mothers of convicts with pitiful
appeals for pardon. Then there are delega
tions who have come to invite the President
to appear ns an advertisement for some sum
mer resort, or some county fair, or to make
an address at some celebration. The lat
ter’s doorkeeper sends to Col. Laniont all tho
callers he thinks the President will not want
to see, and they comprise about two-thirds
of all the people who enter tho White
House. Politicians ami office seekers try to
interest Lamont in the claims of them
selves and their friends and to persuade him
to use his influence in their behalf; but
this in something lie will not do. Lament's
rule is to Serve the President alone. Ho is
interested in the welfare of no one else,
and, unless he sees where the President .can
make a point, ho offers no suggestion.
Very queer requests are made of him.
One day a gentleman called at the White
House to ask Col. Laniont to persuade the
President to take particular notice of an
old lady who was intending to lie at his pun
lie reception that day. lie said it would
give him so much gratification if he would
only notice her a little more conspicuously
than he did the rest of Hi* guests. On an
other occasion a gentleman wrote to say
that he would attend tile reception with a
bride whom ho hail told that the President
would recognize as such as soon as ho saw
her in tho crowd. Ho had tried to con
vince her that the President, by some art of
divination, was enabled to detect evorv
bride who came to the White House, and if
Air. Cleveland would only demonstrate that
he had such a faculty in this caso it would
lie very gratifying. He told how he could
be identified, andny what sign the Presi
dent might tell the party. When Col. la
ment took the note to tlie President tho Tit
ter luughod, and said, “All right, if I can re
member I will try to gratify them." When
the party reached him in the line of hand
makers, and the gentleman who had made
the rouuost gave the sign, th President
“tumbled - ’ instantly, and, looking into the
lady’s face, be said:
“I’m delighted to see you, Mrs. Jones, par
ttcuiorly to tu> brides are bCtro* to-day. X
have watched for them as usual, for I can
always detect them, you Know, and you are
but the third I’ve seen. We usually have a
dozen or so, but they make up in beauty’ to
day what they- lack in numbers.”
Now, who having ti e prevalent impres
sion of the President would expect him to
do a graceful little act like that ! The young
woman nearly fainted from amazement, but
she soon recovered from it, nnd will tell her
children and her grandchildren how the
President of the United States identified her
a bride in a company of 150 women.
Not long ago the President received a lot
tery- ticket from a person down in Mississip
pi. It evidently came from somo iguor
ant colored man, who read on the back of
the document that no prize would be paid
unless the ticket was indorsed by the Presi
dent. Of course the President of the lottery
company was meant, but the poor darkey
thought it was tho President of the United
States who must sign the ticket to make it
Other incidents quite as curious relieve
tho monotony of official life nearly every
day. Sometimes it is aman who has an invest
ment in which he would like to have the
President join, or some inventive genius
with a patent suspender buckle which he
wants the President to try and commend.
Each day- brings its cranks and curiosities.
At 1:30 o’clock, when the President goes
down to his public reception, Col. Lamont
slips out to get a bite of lunch and a breath
of fresh air, and at 3:30 is back at his desk
again. As soon as the President has dis
missed his last caller he rings his bell for
Lamont, and the two are closeted for the
rest of the afternoon.
“Here,” says the Presitoit, “is a letter
from a woman who has lost three
sons in the war and cunT get a pension.
Send that down to Black and tell him to
stretch a point in her favor if the facts are
as she gives them; and, by tho way, I wish
yqu would remind Commissioner Coleman
the next time he conies here to send some
garden seeds to that old fellow—what’s his
name?—l’ve got a memorandum of it some
where —why, that old fellow who keeps the
hotel in the Adirondacks. I promised him
last summer I’d have some seeds sent to him,
but forgot all about it. By the way, Dan,
what arrangements have you made about
our trip up there the first of Juno?” and the
failthful Daniel relates the story of the
preparations for the fishing trip. The next
topic of conversation may be an extra ses
sion of Congress, or the funding of the pub
lic debt, or tho appointment of a Governor
of Utah. Perhaps a telegram may come
which requires an immediate answer, or a
member of the Cabinet may enter with
some business to bo attended to at once, but
if there is no interruption the conference
goes on till the President’s desk is cleared or
a messenger comes in to say that the care
riage has come to take the President for the
afternoon drive. Formerly Col. Lamont
went with the President, but since there has
been a mistress at the White House she has
occupied the other seat. And it is better all
around for her to do so, for the President
always talked business when he was with
Lamont, but when he has his wife along he
lays it aside. Lamont, too, while he loses a
ride in a comfortable carriage behind a fine
pair of horses, gets a chance to visit his
own family, and a respite from business,
At 7 o’clock or 7:30 Col. La
mont is at his desk again, signing the official
letters that have been written by the sten
ographers during the day—for he signs all
the mail that goes out of the White House
except what private letters the President
and Mrs. Cleveland write. What little
time he has left he spends going over the
newspapers, which his editorial training en
ables him to do with great rapidity. The
articles he wants the President so see are
marked with a blue pencil, and those that
are to be cut. out and pasted in a scrap book
are marked with a green pencil. Ilay’es and
Arthur both had what was called a newspa
per clerk —a man who did nothing else but
clip from the newspapers what was said
about them. Lamont does the reading him
self, and the telegraph operator spends his
spare tiibe in using the scissors and paste
No records are kept at the White House
except of the appointments made, thff com
missions signed, and the other documents of
an official character issued by the President.
The latter has his own private memoranda,
but it is not preserved. All letters of im
portance are filed away. Those relating to
appointments to office are sent to the sev
eral departments where they belong, but
two-thirds of the stationery brought in the
mails is sent to the paper mills.
In addition to his clerical duties, Col.
Lamont acts as Grand Chamberlain. Ho
makes out the lists of persons to be invited
to state dinners or receptions, issues the
invitations, makes up the table, pairs off
the guests two and two as he thinks will be
most agreeable and congenial, so that a
guest who gets a good partner may thank
Col. Lamont. while one who does not must
not blame him, for material is scarce some
times. There are a good many private
affairs of the President to be looked after,
also, as well as confidential errands to New
York to see politicians there, which can be
in trusted to" no other member of the offiial
family. The President’s marriage -was a
great test of Lamont's ability as a manag
er, but I understand that he does not wish
to undertake such a job again. Nothing
that has appeared in the papers since he
entered the White House has amused the
President as much as a two-line paragraph
printed in the Sun a few days after the
wedding. It read:
“Advice to Presidents about to marry:
Employ Daniel Lamont.”
Advice for the Minister.
From the Dakota Bell.
A young man who recently graduated
from an Eastern theological school went out
to Murray, in the Coeur d’Alene country,
to take charge of a church. The largest
gambling hall in town was cleared for his ac
commodation the .first Sunday, one table on
which Spanish monte woe usually dealt be
ing left for him to staud behind. A large
stock register book was laid on this, which
was supposed to represent a Bible. The
whole town turned out and the young di
vine preached a powerful sermon. In it he
strongly denounced gambling, horse-racing,
drinking and profanity. That afternoon he
was called on by a committee of leading
citizens, one of whom said:
‘Tai-dner, thar’s a little matter we’d like
to talk over with ye. I reckon it's all O. K.
that you an’ me should speak o’ some mat

HIS LAST WHIRLPOOL VOYAGE.
Graham's Perilous Performance and
Narrow Escape From Death.
A dispatch from Niagara Falls to the New
York World says: Carlisle D. Graham, the
hardy cooper, made his third voyage
through the Whirlpool Rapids today. The
trip was attended with great peril, and only
the navigator’s nerve and presence of mind
saved his life. At 4 o’clock this afternoon
there was a tremendous crowd along the
river hanks and on the bridges. The Grand
Legion of the Select Knights and the
Ancient Order United Workmen’s reunion
here to-day brought a score of excursion
trains and thousands of strangera into the
village, and Graham’s voyage was the event
of the day.
Down at the old Maid of the Mist landing
the barrel was launched, and was anxiously
watched by the cooper and his friends.
Nothing more moist than the atmosphere of
dime museums and saloons had touched it
for many months, and the cask leaked badly.
Because of this and for lack of perfect ar
rangements with the proprietors of Whirl
pool parks and bridges Graham and his
manager, K. R. C. Nolan, decided to aban
don the plan of riding, Mazeppa fashion, on
the outside of the barrel. The announce
ment was quietly made, but such a howl of
disgust was raised that Graham declared he
would go through anyway, mid soon stowed
himself in the bottom of his long cylinder.
There was no hammock to support him, and
only two straps to bang on by, but at 5:30
he shouted pluckily, “Let her go,” and the
cask was towed out into the stream. The
man-hole cover was not hinged, and the last
words of Manager Nolan were: “Don’traise
the cover till you are sure your are all
Three minutes later the yawl boat cast
off its tow, and the cask, standing straight
up in the water, started slowly down stream.
At 5:36 it struck the main current, and
three-quarters of a minute later danced
under the cantilever bridge. As the barrel
passed beneath the suspension bridge a shout
was raised and a dozen enthusiastic ladies
dropped their corsage bouquets in the wake
of the craft, which by this time had reached
the great hollow wave where the Whirlpool
Rapids begin. Up on the long swell it
traveled, and then down with a plunge,
and then on again, spinning like a cork, and
again hidden from view under the green
waves and the cloud of spray. Only once
did the barrel up-end, ami then it quickly
righted and sped on.
At 5:44, just fourteen minutes from the
start, the cask entered the great whirlpool,
and the entire circuit of the pool was made
in seven minutes. The watchers at the
Canadian point neglooted an opportunity to
capture the cask, and it began its second
circuit. For some minutes it floated slowly
about, and then a sudden current carried it
nearly to the centre of the pool. Constable
Andrew Horne, Manager Nolan and others
who were close to the water’s edge, tried to
notify Graham of his danger. A dozen
shots from a revolver were fired, and at
last the man-hole cover was pushed up and
Graham’s head protruded. There was no
possibility of replacing the cover, and should
he be carried down the lower rapids the
great waves would fill the cask ana drowm
him. Graham realized his danger, and
could hear the shouts of warning. Await
ing a favorable turn, which brought the
barrel a little nearer the shore, he climbed
out and dived toward the shore. The barrel
half turned over and shipped considerable
Ed Flanders, Freddy Quinn and another
than had been hired by Manager Nolan to
assist Graham in the,whirlpool, but none of
them volunteered now. The cooper was
battling for life fully 100 yards from shore
and the chances were desperate, %'olan
was frantic. “Swim! you dog, you!” he
shouted to Flanders, but the latter refused
to risk his life. Nolan threatened him with
his revolver, but Flanders was too badly
frightened. Constable Horne muttered
“coward” under his breath and quickly
threw off his clothes. Clad in his under
clothes he dived off a huge rock, and with
long, powerful strokes swam towards the
now almost exhausted cooper. Graham
was pulled under the surface once, but
bobbed up again a few yards away and
.... . -
IV hen Horne reached him both men were
in bad shape, but they persevered, and at
last the variable currents which had opposed
their effort turned and swung both the
swimmers in close to the shore. Horne suc
ceeded in dragging Graham to land, and the
latter fainted. The brave constable was
not in much better shape, but aopious
draughts of brandy revived them. The
cooper was a mass of bruises from his rough
handling in the barrel, and his story of the
trip was a thrilling one. “I could hear a
hissing noise when I passed under the
bridges,” said he, “and I knew where I was
then. That big plunge in front of Man
ning’s elevator is a terror. It made the
barrel spin like a top, and I crouched
down in the bottom till my knees
touched my chin. Then the cask
began to leak, and I was first knee deep and
afterward nearly chin deep in water. When
I was going around the whirlpool the second
time 1 thought I was iu tho lower rapids.
I didn’t hear the shouts at first, and when I
lifted off the cover I tell you I was scared.
I was drifting off toward'the rapids again,
and I know I would be drowned in the cask
sure. There was no way for me to get that
cover on again. It looked pretty ticklish
there in the middle of the whirlpool, but it
was life or death, so I took chances on swim
The barrel drifted for some hours in the
maelstrom and it was recovered this even
ing. Graham says he ls through with the
rapids and will do nothing more in the
aquatic line until Juiv 15, when be proposes
to go over the Horseshoe Falls.
