DRAWING LOTS FOR ROOMS
REPRESENTATIVES GET QUAR
TERS IN NEW BUILDING.
Largest Attendance of Members of
the House at Any Time of
The grrat House office building lottery,
which was pulled oft today on schedule
time, under a previously made arrange
ments brought out the biggest attendance
of the session of representatives up to
date. The drawing for the assignment
of rooms to members was recognized as
an all-afternoon affair, and consequently
the House lost no time, in getting down
to business. On every member's desk this
morning was a big square of white paper
containing the ground-floor plan of the
four stories of the House office building,
with the rooms for members plainly
marked. Each member bad copies of this
plan some days ago. and were supposed
to be familiar with them. Some of them
were and some of them were not. as was
made evident by the manner in which the
House employes designate to check oil
the rooms as fast as they were taken
tore their hair at frequent intervals dur
ing the afternoon.
The Method of Drawing.
The drawing was by the usual met hyd
followed in assigning seats to members
on the opening day of a new Congress. A
blindfolded page put his hand in a bal
lot box and drew out a little white ball
which was marked with a number corre
sponding to that opposite a member's
name on an alphabetical list in possession
of the clerk. Representative Claude
Kitchin of North Carolina was the lucky
man to get the tirst whack at the new
office building. He picked out a nice
light room on one of the upper floors on
the New Jersey avenue or east front.
Then the drawing was continued as rapid
ly as possible, tlie members advancing to
the front of the clerk's desk when their
names were called and announcing their
selection to the House employe in charge
of the recording end of the lottery. Of
course, there were many disappointments,
and some men selected rooms next to
those occupied by their dearest enemies.
But a little judicious swapping w ill change
all this, and it is expected that before long
the members of the House will be pleas
antly and comfortably housed in the big.
new structure. r
Chairmen of committees already had
been assigned quarters ill the new build
ing, and today's drawing was participated
In only by the 333 members who are not
heads of committees. The interest of
members in the novel proceeding was evi
denced by the fact that there were but
few absentees. The selection for these
wore mada by colleagues.
Much Amusement Created.
Much amusement was created by sev
eral members insisting on a thorough un
derstanding of how the drawing was to
be conducted. Mr. Manu, chairman r>f the
committee having the matter in charge,
was subjected to a tire of questions, which
occasioned much confusion and which led
to inquiries of the Speaker as to what>
! business was before the House. Speaker
Cannon finally shut off all discussion by
directing the drawing to proceed.
The drawing had not proceeded far un
til it became evident that the members
were choosing the rooms with a south
ern exposure, by far the most desirable.

NEW YORK. January Si.?Service in thi

trains were to run to Brooklyn today for
the tirst time was more than ample to
carry the early morning rush of passen
gers from Brooklyn to the offices and
stores in Manhattan. Throughout the
rush hours eight-ear trains w^lre run at
intervals of .about three minutes. Not a
passenger was compelled to stand up in
any of the rush-hour trains, and generally
the two or three rear cars were practical

Whether the diversion of traffic by thit

of the morning crusli on the Brooklyn

One reason for the absence of r crowd
from the tunnel service is the fact tha
