TILE WASHINGTON CRITIC, SATURDAY EVENING, APRIL. 10, 18U0.
MRS. HARRISON TALKS, i
WHY THE WHITE HOUSE IS NOT A
BED OF ROSES.

Tho Whito IIouso is tlio goal of ovcry
liollticiaii's ambitions, and hln wifo has
dreams of an cxlsteuco behind lis plllard
portico, for which Arcadian is too small
nnd poor a word. Every ono of thorn
lias views upon how they wuulJ order
and enjoy life in tho mansion, but It Is a
question whether tho reality could o inal
any of theso anticipations? whether tho
AYhito IIouso Is n bed of roses for Its,
Mrs. Grant owns that tho eifiht Imp
plest ycaiB of her llfo wcro those passed
within tho "White IIouso. Not all her
predecessors and successors own to so
much for whllo thcro is tho Gratification
of all prido and ambition for tholr
lieges, thoro arc many things thot offset
and make tho cost of such a station.
"While oTcry ono opprooches tho White
Houso family with deference, smiles,
and apparent friendliness, and say only
hind and flattering things, all tho under
current of unfriendly comment and
criticism comes to them, too, in different
"Anybody can do all tho President's
wife has to do and succeed," said a.
Cabinet officer's wife. "Every ono
goes to tho AYhito House primed full
of remarks, too, and thoro is always
such a lot of peoplo there that tho
President's wifo only needs to say,
'80 happy to havo met you,' ond 'Good
morningf or 'Good evening' to them.
Now, if sho had to sit down and make
conversation with theso peoplcand re
turn their calls and talk, then, loo, sho
would havo a chance to mako blunders
and do real work."
Tho misticss of tho "White IIouso
says: "I wish people would not bo
afraid of me. Thero is nothing in my
appearance to frighten or tonguc-tio
people, or never used, to be; but half of
tho peoplo who como are so embar
rassed and excised that they do not
seem to know what they arc about, and
one has not tlmo enough In tho crush
to quiet them or put them at their
Tho daughter of a foreien mlnlstor
once said: "Whenever I so to tho White
IIouso I havo such a fright. My heart
jumps out of my body when I get near
tho Blue Iloom, ray voice fails, and I
am almost unconscious of what I am
doing until the grcotings are past. Each
time I see tho President I am as ner
vous and frightened as the very first
time I was presented to her Majesty."
She told this to a Senator's daughter,
who looked at her curiouslv and could
not understand tho English girl's inborn
reverence and awe of a ruler; but scores
of peoplo cxpcricnco the same terrors.
There are stories of oftlco-seekors being
admitted to the President's oral library,
and while they waited such an awful
stage fright came ipon them that they
could only stutter nnd mumble a few
words of their long nrguments and take
precipitate leave of the kindly and
quiet man who was ready to listen to
The want of privacy is what Presi
dent Harrison's family and past occu
pants have complained most of. The
AVhlto IIouso itself is as frcoly open
and public as any public building in tho
city, according to tho unwritten and
inviolable law of custom. Tho pub
licity of tho President's life increases
with the growth of the American press.
With each campaign and Administra
tion more space in the papers is given
up to tho most intimate personal life
and the daily doings of such victims.
Their portraits are met everywhere, and
every time tho President turns round,
or his wife changes her dress, it is re
corded across tho whole country. A
file of old newspapers will show how
iccently and rapidly this personal
chronicling has grown up, and past
Presidents had a family and personal
life of comparative privacy.
"The papers toll you all more of our
selves than wo know," wroto Mrs.
Harrison to a friend shortly after the
election; "but it saves us much letter
writing. I grew quite tired of reading
of tho Hnriisons during-the campaign,
and I hardly know how the country
could have stood much more of It. I
never beforo knew how great and good
and accomplished' I was, and, if
another one had taken up a pen, I
should have claimed the wings and
mounted. I know all that my obituary
"Tho press has been uniformly kind,
almost too kind to us," said Mrs. Har
ilson a lew days since. "I sometimes
think though that the press has gono
mad by tho questions reporters put to
me. In the midst of tho campaign some
one came to know 'if marriage was a
failure.' For myself, decidedly not.
Then a womon came outto Indianapolis
to ask 'If tho bustle should go.'
Another ono wanted to know if I
thought that ' women should propose.'
A dozen havo come and havo written
to ask which blossom I preforred for
'the national flower.' Others have
sought mo out to know ' if women are
happy,' and ' what should be tho ago of
tho modern bride,' and ' who should
wear the decollete dress.' The patent
underwear and tho dress-reform people
come often. The last of all the conun
drums was from somo one mystified by
the funny man's allusions in the news
papers, who wanted to know If the
President ate pie.'
" 'Yes," said tho President, 'and I
will appeal to tho country on that issuo
and bo supported,'
"Then tho peoplo who want cooking
jeceipts to print or to sell at their
church fairs! Thev print them, and I
read critical comment from all parts of
"And tho cra.y-qullt people?"
"You might-as well shako a red ilag
at a bull as say crazy quilt to mo. I
thought tho crazy-quilt rage was over
years ago, but it seems to bo at its
height fust now. They write to mo for
scraps of my dresses by-hundreds, and
the census must bo in tho thousands)
now. Happy Martha Washington and
Dolly Madison, with no ono making
crayy quilts In their days. Thoy send
me squares of 3ilk, and ask mo to
write my name on them and to get the
lidies of tho Cabinet families to do the
same, and they scold mo if I do not
huiry about it, or if I decline, as I in
variably do, without response."
Tho pensioners write toMrs.IIanlsou
to know why thero is a delay in their
getting their papers, and tho people
who nddiess thu President and receive
no answer, or olso n note from Private
Secretary Halford, write to ask Mrs",
ilniilton to Joy tho subject beforo tho
President. In ovcry such case, whether
wilttun or verbal, from oldest friend or
unyono, tho members of tho President's
family absolutely refueo to prefer re
questsfor offices or fuvoisto him. They
see how worn and harrassed ho Is with
tho all-day sicgo for olllces, and thoy
will not spoil his lltllo rest or peace lit
thopilvalo paitof tho houso by any
thing of that Mud. Those wllo ask
such favors cannot and will not sec tho
ililicaev and thu liistlcu ot tho ladles'
couiso, and with every such appeal
mado to them Mrs, Harrison and Mrs,
Jlr-Kco havo n sinking at heart In fear
of an enemy made by their refusals.
Tho temporanco people call nnd writ
nnd exhort Mrs. Ilairison as if sho wcto
an abandoned sinner, and thoy tails to
her of Mrs. Hayes, oud hold up
Mrs. Hayes o an example, until
sho must soon dread to hear tho namo
of that cood womon, who was in a way
related to her. If there wore an open
bar in thoWhlto Houso somo of tho ex
porters could not bo moro anxious and
earnest. Tho President and Mrs, Har
rison, who are temperate In all things,
havo only followed cstobllshcd social
usages, and set before their guests what
Is usual and proper,
Every charity and every begging
schema appeals to Airs. Harrison, and
thrco tipicstho President's salary woidd
not meet theso requests. From build
ing a tombs ton 0 for Mory, tho mother
of George Washington, or a Lucy
Hayes' Memorinl Tcmplo down to
binding a photograph and a dollar to
buy tho framo for It to somo strange
correspondent, every ono appeals to
her. Many of tho begging letters are
from poor and Ignorant peoplo, and
aro really prayers addressed to the
highest caithly power thoy know for
help, when their other prayers havo not
been answered. Every fair and chari
tablo entertainment within flftv miles
begs her attendance. Actors and artists
call and ask that tho President's family
will attend their poiformanccs; musi
cians and elocutionists and Infant prodi
gies want to be heard in tho White
II0U60 parlors, aud it is difficult to do
cllno these kind offers that would re
sult In so much benefit to theso per
foimcrs. All tho cumulative methods
of raising money for charities havo
been tried, by asking Mrs. Harrison to
send ten cents or n dollar and mail the
Inclosed blanks to ten moro peoplo,
who will keep on widening tho circle of
contributors by tens.
Mrs. Harrison's mall is a daily curios
ity, as well as an infliction. Tho cranks
in every part of tho country "wrlto to
her, and some of tho letters pass beyond
crankcry. When tho papers announced
that the White House was overrun with
ants, scores or recipes caino for ridding
tho place of tho pests, and in postscripts
tho. writers suggested tho rewards they
would liko for this voluntary kindness
a sum of money, a silk dress, or a post
office. At tho tlmo of tho rat invasion
recipes for rat poisoning and packages
of rat poison came daily. The letter
writers are often impertinent. They
advise Mrs. Harrison not to sign her
name as Cairie, not to bang her hair,
and not to become worldly-minded.
Tho petitions for autographs and photo
graphs are equal to tho crazy-quilt ap
peals. Anxious mothers ask her to
make out a list of books that sho would
adviso a young girl to read. Another
mother wroto that her promising young
son had dreamed that Mrs. Harrison
had sent him a violin. Tho solution of
tho dream was in tho postscript, of
course, and piovidcd for tho dream's
coming true by giving full directions
lor sending an express package to their
country cross roads. Boxes of home
made candy, and cakes, pickles, and
preserves aro scut, requesting orders for
the Whito IIouso tablo and an opinion
of their mcilts. A prize loiter came
from tho South at tho time of the holi
days, and when deciphered read:
"J'rcs. Mrs. Benjamin Harrison:
"I am very desirous to get a Now Years
prescut Irom Washington Cittv ami couse
kucntly havo located on you for tho pres
ent, as I glvo all the aid 1 could to give Mr.
Harrison the President office. My eon,
, cast his first and only vote
for Harrison through my Influence and
many, many others, and now a New Years
Ueensako from 3011 will be highly appreci
ated. If you rospond to my desire please
do not express It as I have vowed nuver to
pay express again tiulcss I could get to sec
what I pay for. So pay tho express when
you ship the present so that I will not have
to brake my vow. A dress pattern, or any
thing. Yoro truo friend, "
"Mils. G. V. .'
Tho women of some association or
club will write in n testimonial to Mrs.
Harrison, and by tho time an acknowl
edgment goes from tho White nouse,
discord and disunion has risen in the
sisterhood, and each faction writes her
their version of how things stand, and
berate ono another warmly. "Sho
ought never to havo held the office,"
wroto one club member of another.
"Sho has no social position, as her hus
band is only a letter-carrier." Thero
was a flno hit of democracy 1 and a tlno
thing to send to tho mansion of the
chief of the land of the free, of liberty
and equality 1 Of course four llfths of
Mrs. Harrison's mall goes straight to the
waste basket, and not all of it even
mcots her eye, as thoso who attend to
her mall know the signs of u crank
intuitively. With the Hood of such
rubbish coming daily, it has to be an
exceptional bit, a com of crankery, that
is saved for Mrs. Harrison's "eccentric
filo" of letters.
Whatever tho occupauts of the
White House have dono In this and in
past administrations, there is sure to be
adverse criticism. The same people,
too, who hod so much fault to find
when President Arthur changed tho
coachman's livery to light drab, criti
cised when Mrs. Harrison made it dark
gieen. Piesident Grant was berated
for driving four horses', aud President
narriEou gets it for driving ono on his
afternoon excursions to tho suburbs.
Thoso who never quit criticism, be
cause President Cleveland hedged him
self In behind a sovereign's etiquette,
and attended dinneis in nono but the
houses of his Cabinet officers, are dis
pleased because President Harrison has
reverted to tho simpler, moro common
senso Republicanism of the old Hue.
Dealing with the members of tho
press Is a most difficult and dellcato
task, and the misticss of tho Whito
House need not bo envied that sharo of
her lcsponsibllitlcs. A tactless or un
gracious courso thcro has ruined tho
chances and tho popularity of too many
people hi official lite. How to meet all
tho requests from that source, to answer
or parry all their questions, scuslblo and
nonsensical, proper and improper, civil
and Impertinent, requires moro discre
tion than is given to tho average
woman. For tho first few months after
tho nomination and tho inauguration tho
ladles of tho family weio simply looked
at. The repot tors wanted to seo Mrs.
Harrison and Mrs. McKce, and no third
pel son could do. To women of their
common senso and natural refinement
this being elevated to the level of some
thing curious In a glass caso, to ha
stand at face to face, was tnlug and
not too Haltering.
Mrs. Harrison lias gradually passed
tho Interviewing department over to
Mrs. McICco now, and her tact, pa
tienco and amiability have mado editors,
correspondents and reporters her
friends, it is Bho who goes down to
seo tho sciibcs from other cities, who
shows them tho grcouhouso nnd gives
them flowers, and who answers as to
what Mis. Ilartisou -thinks of tho
World's Fair silo, and of divorce und
whether a mayonnaise should ho mado
with lemon-iulco or tarratron vinegar.
I "Oh." 6ald ono of them with confusion
! when Mrs. Ilorilsou hetself appeared,
'I did not mean to tiouble you or take
up your tlmo' Mis. MclCeo Is always
1 so nood mituied and obliging, and jun
laughs theso questions oil so nicely
ibntwo do not mind coming to her
I "1 cannot seo how any ono con havo
hU head turned hy cluvullon ton higher
1 'Hire, said At rs. jttrheo. "You only
havo to live lit Washington a very
little tlmo to seo what it Is woith, and
tho tips and' downs of official life. If
my head shows signs of being turned I
hope my fathor will lock, mo up."
Mrs. Ilnrrlson and Mrs. Mckecwhllo
as proud ond fond of tho two McICco
babies as any grandmother nnd mother,
hnvo been not a little annoyed by tho
constant and ridiculous allusions to tlio
President's littlo grandson, who is not
entitled to bo called Baby McKcc.whcn
there is tho little sister younger than
ho. "It is not possible for General
Harrison to think more of his grand
son thnn I do of mine," said a fond
grandfather; "but I'd want to hurt
somo ono If our innocent littlo fellow
hod to be treated so In tho news
papers." Tho President's family arc all people
of common-sense and cannot fall to be
annoyed, and after tho campaign and
elections hnvo passed, it would be only
rational for tho newspapers to get a new
joke. Only ono editor, bo far as known,
lias issued a general order to his staff
that Baby McKcc shall not bo mentioned
except in tho lino of legitimate nows
and happenings, and then, as Mrs. Mc
Kco's oldest child Is Benny McKeo, and
tho baby is Mory McKce, accuracy must
bo respected by tho would-bo funnv
Imagination pictures the Presidential
family as living on the pinnacle of
splendor and luxury.. Any other house
In town almost offers moro real comfort
to its occupants, and thcro aro a hundred
houses where moro art ond luxury aro
found in tho finish and fittings. Tho
family havo no living room or sitting
room thot is privato ond their own savo
the end of tho draughty corridor up
stairs. Tho offices havo absorbed so
much of tho house that only ono bed
chamber can bo set opart for tho guests
whom they may wish to entertain.
Much of tho tablo service Is plated
ware, tho carpets aro often turned and
tho curtains patched. Mrs. narrlson
says anxiously. "If wo can afford new
curtains this year," qulto as If sho were
a housekeeper with a husband on a
slender salary Instead of tho mistress of
tho Whito Houso, that has to bo fur
nished and cared for out of beggarly
appropriations doled out by tho stupid
and stingy legislators of the greatest aud
richest country on earth.

The local team closed tho exhibition
season yestcrdoy by administering n
drubbing to tho Gorhamsto tho tuno of
20 to 2. Tho gamo was an unlntorestlng
one, and was only distinguished by the
hard hitting of tho Wnshlngtons, who
batted as they pleased, and only ceased
making luns when they wcro too tired
to run tho bases.
Tho exhibition season which has just
closed has not proven a very successful
one, except in so far ns it has enabled
tho men to gain somo knowlcdgo of each
other's methods of play and to get a
littlo practlco preliminary to tho harder
work of tho pennant race. Tho weather
has been tho greatest barrier to success,
ond when it was good tho team that was
to ploy against tho local nino was not a
drawing attraction, so that financially
tho season was n failure.
Nevertheless tho records mode by
the local team afford a sufficient index
by which to judge tho nbility of each
ployer. Tho men havo shown them
.Belves to bo extraordinarily strong bat
ters, although batting against pitchers
who were not of their class, and some
of them have mado phenomenal records
in this line. McCoy leads "tho batters
with a record of ,007, but as he only
participated in parts of two games ho is
not the heaviest batter, for Nicholas,
who played in nine gomes, has tho re
markable avcrago of .'101. All tho
men, with tho exception of Maco and
Moloney, aro well over the .300 mark.
Bader Is far and awny tho best run-getter
of the team, but in this respect all
tho men havo done excellently, nnd do

to hope that it will achieve any such
record as this in tho championship

The championship season begins to
day, and from now until October the
boys will ho hustling at a pretty lively
rnte in order to maintain their position
in the race. The Washington baseball
public is to be congratulated that it has
u team tills season that does not begin
the race, handicapped by tho knowl
edge that it stands" no show whatever
for championship honors or anything
approximating thereto, but, on tho con
trary, wasialmost Inevitable tall-cnders.
Such has been the conditions which
have prevailed for the past four years.
But this season all is changed. Tho
club could not begin it under moro
auspicious circumstances. It is con
nected with a first-class organization
that, while a minor league, is bound
ere mony seasons to be a potent factor
in baseball. It is free from any fight
or opposition, such as prevails against
the National League, and there is at
least an even chance for a fairly suc
cessful financial season. It starts in tho
rnce with a first-class club, one, in fact,
that is as strong ns any in tho Associa
tion. Its chances for the pennant nro
exceedingly bright, and, If it fails to
win it, It will be In tho fight clear to
the finish. The Washington Club
staits out with tho best wishes of all
Ihe lovers of sport in this city, who nro
already reconciled to tho fact that it
is better to bo fighting for tho cham
pionship In n minor association, than
to be tho toil-endcrs in a major one,
losing money and prestige year after
Harry Wright, when asked his
opinion of tho Washington Club after
Thursday's game, said: "You havo a
great club here. I liko them exceed
ingly, nnd if thoy wero in tho Leaguo
they would mako somo of the other
clubs hustle to keep ahead of them.
Thcic arc n number of men on tho team
who promise to develop into first-class
stars. How do thoy compare with the
Phillies? Now, you don't expect mo to
answer that question. It's a great
team, though, and I wouldn't mind
having some of tho men." This is

best judges of ball players In the

Is indigestion and a sluggish liver, tlio

stomach, Ayer's Pills aro tho most re
liable remedy." Samuel C. Hradburn,
"After tho uso of Ayer's Tills for
many years, in my practlco and family,
I am justified in saying that they aro an
excellent cathaitlo and liver medicine
sustaining nil tho claims inailo for them."
W. A. Wcstfall, M. V V. P. Austin
& N. W. Kallway Co,, Burnet, Texas.
"Ayer's Tills nro tho best mcdlcino
known to me for regulating tho bowels,
and for all diseases caused by a dls
ordered stomach and liver. I suffered
for over three years from headache, in
digestion, and constipation. I had no
nnnetito and was weak nnd nervous
most of tho time. By using three boxes
of Ayer's Pills, and nt tho same timo
dieting myself , I was completely cured."
Philip Lockwood.Topeka, Kansas.
"I was troubled for years with indi

few boxes of Ayer's Pills, used lu small
daily doses, restored mo to health.
