THE WASHINGTON HERALD, SUNDAY, MARCH 2. 1913.
All Public Buildings'
Open to City Guests
Show City of America Has More to Display Than
Any Other Men of Affairs and Their Of
ficial Homes Always Interesting.
Aiide from the persons who comprise and control the govern
ment, probably the greatest interest of visitors to the Capital centers
on the public buildings, in the possession of which Washington is
unique among cities.
The government officials themselves arc, to put it that way, Hie
principal objects of interest to visitors. The people of the country
like to read about and see the men who make their laws. They like
to know what they look like and what they are doing. They like to
read about how thev rose to their positions in the national life. And,
next, they like to se'e the places where they work and where the busi
ness of the government is transacted.
In this respect, Washington can afford them ever) thing they want.
Here are the National Capital, all the departments of the executive
branch of the government, all the liiaciiincrv of the nation
Here they can see the places where "their" representatives work,
where they live, where their evcrjday life is. And now, at inaugura
tion, is one of the best times to learn even thing about the workings
of the government and about the men who guide the ship of state.
All the department buildings are open to visitors from 10 to 2 o clock
dailv. The Capitol is also open for inspection every day. While Con
gress is not in session at the present time, it will be shortly, and, at
any event, all the Representatives and Senators are here. Incoming
and outgoing legislators, they are all here for the inauguration. The
two great parties mingle, one coming into power, the other removing
the last vestiges of its Ion:
