The News and Gossip at the Nation’s
Capitol by Our Correspondent.
Washington, D.C. Jan 29, 1902.
Wanted —Three Americans of
international reputation, to go to
Europe in the interest of the St.
Louis Exposition. Apply to Pres
ident, White House, Washington,
D. C. Mr. Roosevelt has nob in
serted this want ad, in the papers,
but all the same the want is real.
He promised Gov. Francis, presi
dent of the Exposition Cos., that
he would appoint a commission of
three to go to Europe for the pur
pose of stirring up the govern
ments over there and getting them
to take a little more interest in
in the Exposition, and he would
be glad to hit upon the right men.
Admiral Dewey has been suggest
ed as one of them; also General
Miles. Both are known at all the
European capitals, but neither of
them are in favor with Mr. Roose
velt just now. A facetious Sena
tor to whom the matter was men
tioned, said to the President: “If
you wish the European govern
ments to tumble over each other
in the rush for exhibition space
let the commission be composed
of J. Pierpont Morgan, John D.
Rockafeller and Andrew Carnegie,
and let our newspapers announce
that they intend to buy every
country that doesn’t agree to ex
hibit at the exposition.”
Gov. and Mrs, Shaw'have arriv
ed. For the present, they will live
at a hotel, but expect to be house
keeping before the flowers bloom
in the spring. Secretary shaw
jumped right into business, as
Secretary Gage was impatiently
waiting to be relieved of the cares
and responsibilities of Uncle
Sam’s great financial department,
and Mrs. Shaw found a stack
of social invitations awaiting her
Senator Dubois lias been black
listed by all the West Pointers,
for having referred to them as
“charity boys” in a speech in the
senate. They say that on the
average a West Pointer comes as
near to returning an ecpiivalent
for what he receives from the
government as the average senator
does. As it isn’t my quarrel I
have no opinion to express about
Secretary Gage makes his debut
in anew role —that of a lover and
patron of music—just as he is
making his exit from public life.
About six years ago Mr. and Mrs.
Gage became acquainted with lit
tle Florizel Von Reuter, then only
four years old, son of a German
father and an lowa mother. They
were so impressed with his won
derful musical talent that they
persuaded his parents to allow
Mr. Gage to send him to Europe,
where his talent could he cultiva
ted under the best masters. Since
then until recently the boy has
been studying and practicing Sau
ret and Marteau. His favorite
instrument is the violin. He is
now in Washington, andjbas play
ed for small audiences in the Gage
residence and in the White House,
and competent critics pronounce
him a wonder and predict a great
career for him. What Secretary
Gage thinks of him w r as forcibly
expressed when he said : “I would
rather give this boy’s work to the
world than to have been the Sec
retary of the Treasury.”
Speaking of the youthful ap
pearance of several members of
Congress, Representative Heat
wole, of Minn., told this story, at
his own expense: “I saw a young
man the other day, on the floor of
the house, whom I took to be a
Page. ‘Won’t you be good enough
to tell Stephens, of Texas. I want
to see him,’ I said. ‘Certainly,’
this young man responded, and he
executed my request in the cour
teous manner Later I learned
he was Mr. Lever, of S. C., a
member of this House, and, of
course, I apologized.” Several
members have had similar expe
riences with Mr. Lessler, anew
and youthful-looking in emb e r
from New York city.
The young friends of Reed Knox,
son of tiie Attorney General, who
was fined $5 in the police court
for fast driving on the street, are
having no end of fun with him,
because he put in a plea of igno
rance of law. They tell him that
a plea from the son of a promi
nent lawyer was little short of dis
graceful and that he ought to have
been made to ‘‘do time” for set
ting it up.
The statement sent out from
Washington that no ladies would
attend the State banquet to be
given Prince Henry by the Presi
dent, at the White House, was
made without authority. It is
certain that Mrs. Roosevelt and
Miss Alice Roosevelt will attend
the banquet, and probable that
there will be other lady guests.
The name cards at a luncheon
given in honor of Miss Alice
Roosevelt is likely to be Treasured
as souveninirs by those who have
them, not only because the affair
was an enjoyable one but because
the cards were intrinsically worth
keeping as works of art. Mrs.
Joy, wife of Representative Joy,
of Mo., was the hostess. The name
cards wore made of broad white
satin, in two parts. On one part
is a portrait, in water color, of
Miss Roosevelt, with the date and
name of the guest below, and on
the other was the names of the
guests, surrounded bv a wreath of
(lowers, painted in water colors.
Mrs. Fairbanks, president gen
eral of the D. A. R., said of the
annual congress of that organiza
tion, to be held in Washington,
next month: “All indications
point to the largest attendance of
delegates at the congress of the
Daughters of the American Revo
lution ever known upon a similar
occasion. There will probably be
about nine hundred delegates and
the floor capacity of our hall will
he taxed to its utmost. I think
we will have a most harmonious
congress. Of course, in a body of
nine hundred earnest, energetic
women there will be differences of
opinion, and the natural desire to
win a point may sometimes cause
a little friction, but 1 think we
compare very favorably with con
gresses of ineq, of like parlimenta
ry experience. You see, the pub
lic is not quite accustomed to
‘strenuousness’ in women, and so
we are sometimes misunderstood.
We mean nil right and we are
SOMETHING THAT WILL DO YOU
We know of no way in which we can
be of more service to our readers than
to tell them of something that will be
of real good to them. For this reason
Iwe want to acquaint them with what
we consider one of the very best reme
dies on the market for coughs, colds,
and that alarming complaint, croup.
We refer to Chamberlain s Cough Rem
edy. We have used it with such good
results in our family so long that it has
become a household necessity. By its
prompt use we haven’t any doubt but
that it has time and again prevented
croup. The testimony is given upon
our own experience, and we suggest
that our readers, especially those who
have small children, always keep it in
their homes as a safeguard against
croup.—Camden (S. C.) Messenger.
