ran ladies' keckption-uoom. .
The so-called "ladies' reception-room,"
which consisted of some nigs and chairs de
posited in one corner of Statuary Hall, has
vanished completely, and John Adams and
Joseph Giddlngs look down disconsolately
upon the vacant space lately filled with ladies
more or less beautiful and attractive. Some
years ago the room now occupied by the sub
committee of Ways and Means was used as a
lodics' reception-room, where women having
business received Congressmen and discussed
their claims or grievances. By and by, so
rumor has it, this semi-private npartmcut was
monopolized too much by women having no
business and by Congressmen who preferred
to while away their time in such society to the
duller duty of law-making. However that
may be, the committee in authority a year or
two ago seized upon the women's reception
room, and on the plea of crowded quarters ap
propriated it for the use of the said sub-committee.
About ten feet from the south side of
Statuary Hall are ranged eight massive pillars,
behind which, on cither side of the door, are
two long, narrow, and comparatively secluded
spaces. Into one of these were transplanted a
few tender old rugs and some internally disor
ganized leather furniture. Then adding a
table, some blauk cards, and a genial old gen
tleman to superintend the committee wrote a
placard, "Reception-Room for Ladies Only,"
and, tying it with a white string around one of
the huge pillars, the deed was done. The
1 uiiiaiiu iiuuuiy ml oiuiuury li.ui hub ueeu ue-
stroyed, but the properties have been preserved
aud a Congressman having business with ladies
is very careful that the person he meets iu this
gaping audience chamber shall be worthy of
presentation to his mother or his.sister or his
aunt, should such of his esteemed relatives
suddenly present themselves.
Immediately on adjournment these rugs were
rolled up, and along with the chairs, sofas, and
the superintendent's table and the big printed
placard, have been stored away until next De
eember. Among the reduced number of offi
cials and watchers at the Capitol are the ouly
two women on the pay-roll of that big estab
lishment. These are the two matrons in charge
of the ladles' private reception-rooms of the
House and Senate wings. Opening into the
House gallery on the southwest corner are two
cozy, nicely furnished apartments, set apart
for the exclusive use of women. Easy chairs,
ice water, mirrors, aud toilet appurtenances
are at the service of the sightseers and visitors
to the gallery. Mrs. Heart, the genial, dark
eyed widow in charge, is an Ohio woman, and,
though a Republican appointee, lias made her
self so popular that she will most likely be un
disturbed by the party's change of fortune.
It is a very handsome and stately woman
who has charge of the subterranean parlor ac
corded to women in the Senate wing. Her
fine bruuette complexion, silky waving hair,
soft voice, and subdued manner but merely
suggest the race to which she belongs. Prop
erly equipped aud environed, Clementine
might readily pass for a foreign lady of dis
tinction, so easy and well-bred is she in her
general carriage and conversation. She holds
her place here through the Sherman influence,
and previous to her appointment was a maid
in the family of Senator Sherman and that of
the late General for more than thirteen years.
She is devoted to the Sherman family, with
the old instinctive habit of the Virginian serv
ant to the master's fortunes. Nothing so de
lights Clementine as the recounting of the
clever sayings and generous deeds of the vari
ous members of the Sherman family. Of the
General she speaks with reverence, and proudly
refers to his generous expenditure of money,
of his daughter's devotion, and she pictures
John Sherman as the most genial of men at
home and warm-hearted and cordial to his
close friends. Lady visitors, especially Wash
ingtonians, like to stop and chat with Clemen
tine, and they And her far better posted on
current events than the average society woman.
She was, of course, intensely interested in the
election bill, and watched its fato from day to
day with eager hope for its success. She was
present when Don Cameron voted to lay it
aside uud her disappointment was intense, and
not so much apparently on the defeat of the
measure as that one of the Sherman family
could have voted to kill it.
"What will Miss Lizzie say ?" was Clemen
tine's mournful remark, By Miss Lizzie she
referred to Mrs. Seuator Cameron, formerly
Miss Lizzie Sherman, and then she told how in
other times and under other differences of
opiniou between Senator John Sherman and
Senator Don Cameron Miss Lizzie had invari
ably supported her uncle's judgment.
Until the 1st of May the entire Capitol force
will lie taking a rest. After that the initial
disorganization for regular house-cleaniucr will
begin, and from July to December thohun
dreds of cleaners, painters, upholsterers, and
decorators will get the big building in order
for another deluge of legislation, another sea
son of desecration and dirt.
