AFTER TWENTY-TWO YEARS A NEW
VHITE HOUSE COACHMAN.
Tho Old DaMcy "Wlio Guided the Horses
for Grant, Hayes, Garfield, Arthur and
Cleveland Tells Some of His Reminis
cences to "Walter Wollman.
Washington, Aug. 7. An unhappy
man is Albert Hawkins, colored; and no
wonder, for lie has lost a throne. Twenty
two years has Hawkins sat supreme upon
the box of the White House carriage,
HAWXLS'S ON THE BOX.
and ho had long ago concluded he was
thus seated for life. But for some reason
Mrs. Harrison has let the old man go,
and employed anew coachman in his
place. Naturally the fall has nearly
broken the old man's heart. Hawkins re
tiros from his office with much bitter
ness of heart and many interesting rec
ollections of the White House and its
occupants. The trouble is to induce him
There is not a newspaper man in
Washington who does not know from
actual test how well Hawkins can hold
his tongue. During the twenty-two
years of his service in the White House
stables he has been besought many
thousand of times to give up bits of in
formation, apparently trivial in them
selves, but of piime importance to the
chronicling craft. He has always re
fused. It has been said of Hawkins that
his own coach horses could not pull a
word from his lips concerning the move
ments or habits of his employers. He
habitually drew his lips as tightly as he
did his lines, and thus drovo calmly
through twenty-two years of rough
roads. Hawkins is a large, coal black
man, whose hair is now silvered. He is
a positive character, strong in his likes
and dislikes, possessed of fancies and
hatreds amounting almost to supersti
tions. Mrs. Cleveland was the apple of
his eye. To this day he is prone to talk
of her sweetness, of her beauty, of her
kindness. Ho shed tears when she left
the White House, Republican though he
is, and it was the mention of Mrs. Cleve
land that loosened the old man's tongue.
"Ah," ho exolaimed, ''that was a wo
man of a million. That was the sweet-
est woman that ever entered the White
House in my day. I shall never forget
dear, sweet Mrs. Cleveland. She"
All things earthly, even such honest I
rhapsodies, must come to an end, and so I
I interrupted Hawkins with an inquiry
concerning Ins first days as the presi
"It has been said of me,'' replied the
dethroned whip, "that I was in tho
anny with Gen. Grant, and that he
brought me to Washington as his coach
man. That is not true. I did not enter
the servico of tho general till after he
was elected president. Gen. Grant was
the greatest lover of fino horses we have
had iu the White Houso in my day. He
liked a spirited horse, one that was fond
of plunging and rearing and of pulling
the carriage along by tho bits. How my
arms used to ache driving the general's
favorite span over the country roach?.
Ho nover wanted to go slow, no matter
what the rocda were. Often I used to
pull up on tho hills and dangerous
places, but -Gen. Grant would sing out
to me, "Let 'era go, Hawkins; thoy won't
hurt themselves." And so I let 'em go,
sometimes, it seemed to me, at the risk
of killing everybody behind them. But
Gen. Grant wouldn't let a horse of his
be abused. He wanted them driven
like the wind, but only for a short time,
ajid then he wanted them taken care of
like babies. I never in all my life saw
such a particular msa .as ho was about
the care of horses, and, it wasn't easy to
fool'him, either. Ho used to comedown
to tho stables when ho wasn't expected
and take a look at things, and he knew
when tho boys had done what was right
and when they hadn't. ' Her was a power
ful handy man to have about in case of
sickness in the stable, too.
"It has always appeared to mo," con
tinued Hawkins, "that people didn't
know Gen. Grant. For instance. I don't
believe it was generally known that tho
general was so gentle and kind and so
hated to have any bother that the Whito
Houso was ruled by Mrs. Grant as with
a rod of iron. She managed everything,
snd the general, along with all the other
folks, gave wayto her. Mrs. Grant was
easily angered and when in a passion
was a regular whirlwind, but tho storm
soon blew over, and then she was as
sweet as she could be. She seemed to
be sorry for something she had said
while angry, and for a week or two she
would actually bo so meek in the pres
ence of the servants that they talked
about it And then, when they were
just ready to imagine that they could do
as they pleased, she would flare up and
make their heads swim. Nellie Grant
was a sweet girl, enough like Mrs.
Cleveland to be her sister, and it made
me sick when she married that English
man. That was all Mrs. Grant's doings.
The general was opposed to it from
the first, and he was mighty badly hurt
over it, I can tell you. If it had been
anybody but Mrs. Grant that he had to
deal with on that occasion the wedding
never would have come on. Mrs. Grant
was the only person in the world that
could induce the general to change his
mind after he had once made it up. She
ruled him completely. But she was a
splendid woman, and we all liked, her.
There was a change whan the Hayeses
came in. We had no more fine horses.
Mrs. Hayes was very popular among the
servants, but for some reason we did
not care much for Mr. Hayes. The
Grants teemed to be in the White House
for the fun there was ia it. while the
Hayeses were more serious. President
Hayes did not care a snap about horses
and rarely rode out. It always seemed
to mo that he was averse to being seen
in public. A crowd umde him decided
"Prcvitksit Garfield ' was ia . whole !

and easy to approach. The family was
a well ordered one,- and inclined to have
some enjoyment out of life, though the
boys were not half so wild as the Grant
boys were. Miss Mollie Garfield was
the pet of the White House during the
stay of her parents, and we were all very
fond of her, though I remember that we
had a good deal of pity for her too, as
she seemed all the time to be struggling
along under a load of parental restraint.
Once in a while she got over the traces
and showed us that she had a 6pirit, and
a right lively one at that. I shall never
forget the morning PresMent Garfield
was shot. I had driven him and Secre
tary Blaine to tho station, and they had
not been out of the carriage more than
twenty seconds when I heard the report
of the pistol. Though at that time I did
not know what had happened, I felt that
something had gone wrong with the
president. In five minutes it couldn't
have been longer there were 10,000 peo
ple about that station. It seemed the
whole of Washington had suddenly gath
ered at Pennsylvania avenue, and the
crowd was so dense that it was all I
could do to force my horses through the
mass of humanity. Men caught at the
reins and grabbed hold of the wheels,
swearing they would not let me go on
till I told them what had happened. At
that moment I knew nothing except that
the president had been shot, but they
wouldn't believe me. If the police hadn't
come to my rescue I shouldn't have
reached the White House in four hours.
"When President Arthur came to the
White House it was in many respects as
if the Grant regime had been restored.
President Arthur was the gayest man
that ever occupied the presidential chair,
I'll venture. I can see hini now as I
used to see him, standing on the portico
waiting for me to drive up. His clothes
faultless; not a wrinkle anywhere;
every garment and every seam a perfect
fit, and trousers that were simply divine.
Trousers were his weakness, just as
horses were Gen. Grant's weakness. The
servants used to tell me that Gen. Ar
thur had a new pair of trousers made
i every week, and that he had at times as
many as seventy or eighty pairs in hia
THE PRESIDENT'S STABLES.
wardrobe, but I never believed that.
Mr. Arthur rode out a great deal, and
he wanted the equipage as neat and
perfect as he was himself. One day
we drove up to the White House
with a little bit of dust on the
victoria. Mr. Arthur saw it and it
provoked him so much that he sent the
carnage Daclc to tho stable and gave up
his proposed drive. Every three months
the footman and I had to go over to New
York and spend a week getting new out
fits. We paid a hundred dollars a suit,
and sometimes bought ten or twelve
suits at one order. The carnages and
harness were of the most expensive pat
tern and they had always to be kept
looking just as if they had come from
the shop. The silk hats which we wore
during the day we were not allowed to
wear at night. The president was very
particular about this, as he said th?
night air ruined silk hats. President
Arthur spent money like water, not only
on the stable but in the house, and I
don't believe he saved a cent of his sal
ary. "President Cleveland did not ride out
much till after ho was married. When
ho wanted to go out ho would order a
carriage, and it didn't make a particle
of difference to him what carriage was
used or how many horses. I believe he
would have jumped into an old fash
ioned one horse chaise and never noticed
the difference. But when the day of his
marriage approached he began to spruce
up and really became quite foppish.
He kept this up ufl one dajr he discov
ered that tho servants were laughing .at
him, and then he blushed like a school
boy and for a time tried to fall back to
his old habits.
"Mrs. Cleveland," Hawkins went on,
with an enthusiasm which showed he at
last had reached the topic nearest his
heart, "was the most perfect lady that
ever lived. None of the servants could
ever be asked to do too much for her.
Day and night they were always antici
pating her least desire. And how the
president did love her! I never saw such
perfect devotion. I'll tell you a little
secret about the Clevelands. When tha
nevfbpapers used to say that Mr. Cleve
land wa6 not treating his wife right tho
president went nearly crasy. He used
to say that he wished he were not presi
dent of the United States, so that he might
find the man that wrote those terrible
things and choke him. And the presi
dent did look to me as if he could kill
the fellow. Bnt Mrs. Cleveland would
say m her sweet way: 'Never mind,
Grover. You oughtn't to care much if
I don't, and I don't care a snap, as I
know how false the st-eries are, and eome
day the world will know it, too.' "
As to the present occupants of the
executive mansion the ex-ccaclrman
would hftve little to say, excepting as to
BabyMcKee. "I like the whole fam
ily," he said, "but I love that little ras
cal. There is plenty of the old Nick
under that boy's skiu, and he was a great
pet of mine.'' Wjunn: Wexxhan.

would thicken and be red and

was prononnced incurable. I
heard of the Cuticltka Reme-
