In a cb'tl executive such a lover of
horses ai Is President Boosevelt, and
consequently be Is giving a great deal
of attentlou to tbe Wblte House sta-
ties. They are being looked after as
neer before, and tbe stablemen are
earning every dollar of ttWr salary
these days. Not only Is the president .
ne of the best Judges of them In this
country. To please his critical eye an
animal must be entirely free from tbe
slightest aliment or blemish.
In looking around for a team awhile
ago be had three beautiful horses sent
from New York for bis Inspection.
They were superb beasts to all appear
ancesand the employees In the White
House stables were enthusiastic in
their praise. It took the president,
howeer, less than ten minutes to sur
mise that something was wrong, and a
veterinary who was called in soon con
firmed his suspicions. It was a great
disappointment to the president, as
finer animals are seldom seen, but he
has succeeded In securing two fine
specimens of horseflesh. They are two
handsome bays standing sixteen hands
high, weighing 200 pounds and are
five years old.
Tbe White House stables consist of
two buildings, a two story red brick
structure erected In 1S71 and a low,
rambling, yellow framed building
which was the historic stable that
housed the presidents' horses previous
(to that date. They are situated at the
corner of Seventeenth and E street. In
a-corner of tbe park south of and ad
Joining the White House grounds. He
cently the stables have been enlarged
under the direct supervision of Colonel
Theodore Bingham, superintendent of
public buildings and grounds.
The stable attendants are nearly all
white men now, but up to four years
ago were nearly all negroes, and the
few colored hands now employed are
hired to do the work of cleaning the
&h sr . ;
ETTBiXCE TO WnTTE HOUSE STJBLES
stables and keeping the adjacent
grounds In order. Tbe foreman of the
president's stable Is Arthur Hurley, an
ex-Jockey and a man thoroughly ersed
In horse lore. He is a short, thick set
man of thirty-eight jears and a native
of the District. Hurley was In the
service of President Hayes when a boy
and used to assist in exercising tbe
horses. Four years ago he was pro
moted to foreman and has worked
bard to make tbe antiquated building
look semimodern and attractive. He
has three white assistants, who relieve
each other In driving the president and
In superintending tbe cleaning of the
vehicles and the care of the horses.
Leading to the presidential stables
on tbe Seventeenth street side is a
large court, and on both sides are car
riage bouses, where vehicles used by
tbe executive department and the pri
vate conveyances of the president are
kept. Although roomy, tbe stalls for
tbe president's horses are of the sim
plest character. The partitions and
floors are of rough pine planking. Di
rectly over each stall Is a small framea
bearing tbe animals name. Among
the horses Is a pretty little bay man
belonging to Sirs. Roosevelt. It is
called Lady Dancer and was raised by
tbe president's wife from foal. Lady
Dancer receives at least one visit from
Mrs. Boosevelt a day, and tbe children
bring it many a lump of sugar from
the Wblte House table.
Provender for thehorses furnished
for. the ose of the executive depart
ment Is provided by tbe goernment:
and eleven attendants are paid from
tbe Same appropriation, wblcb amounts
to about $10,000. Above tbe rear sta
bles are living rooms for tbe foreman
and his assistants. All repairs to car'
riages and all horseshoeing are done
by contract, and do mechanical work
Is performed at tbe stables.
One of the most elaborate vehicles
seen on tbe streets In Washington for
many years is tbe new carriage of
'President Boosevelt. It Is a two seat
ed, open, light driving wagoiv painted
a dark bine and upholstered In light
yellow leather. Tbe body of the wag
on la of light yellow basket work, with
a. faint stripe of red, and oo tbe panels
of each side Is tbe monogram T. E."
The coachman and footman on tb'.s
carriage wear the handsomest livery
displayed by any president since the
dnys of Arthur. They wear long, dark
bine coats, and on tbeir tall hats are
two cockades of black bora, with a
rosette of red. white and blae silk.

THE STOKER MAYOR.
Interesting Facts Aleut Bridge
port's Chief Executive.
t-ernaps one or tne most interesting
of tbe new mayors elected this fall Is
the chief executive of Bridgeport,
Conn. Denis Muhlhill Is called the
"stoker" major because for thirty
years he has n orked at the furnaces of
a manufacturing company in the city
nhere he now holds the highest mu
nicipal office. Up to tbe very day he
nns elected Mr. MuKllitll put In nine
hours dally shoveling coal, but so sure
was he of success that he then handed
In bis resignation, but said be might
want bis old Job back again in two
years. His majority was the largest
eer ghen a candidate In Bridgeport.
Few mayors hae been so little
known before election and so much
talked about since as the "stoker" may
or. Up to four j ears ago he had hard
ly been heard of outside of his neigh
liorhood. Then be was waited upon
one evening by a committee and asked
to run for alderman. He refused, say
ing he had stayed out of politics all his
life, and It was too late for him to learn
new tricks- They urged him that his
duties .as an alderman would occupy
only two nights a week and that it was
time he did something for bis party.
Finally he accepted, and his election
As an alderman Mr. Mulvlbill at
tracted a great deal of local attention.
He opposed e ery measure that carried
with it an expenditure of public funds
and fought so hard against appropria
tions he regarded as needless that he
wns ghen the name of the "watchdog
of the city treasury."
Although many regarded It as a huge
Joke when Mr. Mulvihlll was nominat
ed for mayor and said It was Impossi
ble for him to win, they did not know
the power of tbe candidate, lie was
known simply as a laborer, but the
fact that be was an unusual one was
not known outside of tbe manufactur
ing plant In which he worked. His
friends predicted Just such a majority
as he received. During 'the campaign'
he made no speeches. Knowing him
li bei poor man, a large number of
people sent blm checks to aid blm In
bis -ampalgn, but these Mr. Mulvlbill
retuned, saying he was able to pay
his ovm bills.
The former coal shoveler and present
mayor of Bridgeport is a man with

deep gray eyes, strong features aad is
a splendid example of physical man
hood. He stands about 5 feet 11 inches
and weighs nearly 200 pounds. His
face Is clean shaved, displaying a strik
ingly tenacious chin. Determination Is
written upon bis countenance unmis
takably. A moment's talk witb the
"stoker? mayor will tell you be Is an
Irishman, and lie bas a philosophy of
life distinctly bis own, which be ex
presses In his own Irish way. He Is
typically Irish in temperament, good
natnred, witty and altogether whole
Mayor Mulvihlll was born in one of
the southern counties of Ireland Just
fifty-eight yean ago. His father was
a machinist and gave tbe ton the ad
vantages of thevmeager school facili
ties available. He aided bis father in
bis work until over twenty years old,
and then, like many other ambitious
Irish lads of the time, be set sail for
America. At first tbe yonng Immigrant
was a day laborer in Massachusetts,
but in 1871 he went to Bridgeport,
CotuL, got a Job as a stoker at the
Wheeler te. Wilson Manufacturing
company, and there be remained. Dar
ing all tat time be bad worked four
teen boon a day, getting up to start
the fires at 430 o'clock In the-morning
and stopping work at 6 In tbe even
ing. It sever occurred to him to ask
for promotion from coal shoveling or to
be surprised that promotion did not
eorae to him without tbe asking.
- Caring all those years a a 'stoker
Mr. Mulvihlll worked lor $14 a week.
On this amount be not only supported
a family, bat saved money besides. He
lived frugally and with his Barings
bought bnlldtog lota la East Bridge
port. They were very cheap then, bat
be tuosght they woald rise In valae.
He was right. Tbe lowest estimate of
the present value of abi property I

proud of his daughter, who Is now In
the high school and studying Trench.
As mayor of Bridgeport his salary will
be $3,000, four times his wages as sto
ker. He believes In hard nork and
says It Is the best tonic In the world.
A fighting Governor.
Few ngnts against comDines nave
aroused more Interest In this country
than tbe one now on In tbe northwest
ern states In oppos'tlon to tbe consoll-
datlon of the Northern Pacific and the
Great Northern and Burlington rail
roads. Governor Samuel B. Van Saut
of Minnesota, wbo is leading the bat
tle against tbe roads, says he has the
support of a number of other govern
ors. The affair promises to be fought
to a finish and will be a bitter one
while It lasts.

dent Lincoln's first call for 75,000 men,
but was rejected on account of his age.

being not quite seventeen. Again he
tried and was rejected, but finally was
accepted as a member of Company A,
Ninth Illinois. Before he was allowed
to go to war, however, he had to have
a written permit from his father.
The governor was a great favorite
not only in bis own company, but
throughout the regiment, and was In
tbe thick of many famous battles. Aft
er the-war he studied In New York city
for some time and then went to Galcs
burg and graduated from Knox col
lege. Soon after his graduation be
went into business with his father at
Leclalre, la . and they built oue of tbe
first raft steamers on tbe Mississippi.
For a number of years Governor Van
Eant was general manager of the Van
Sant & Musser line of steamboats. He
went to Winona, Minn. In 1S83 and
was closely Identified with tbe city's
best Interests -and actively assisted In
all pnblie-OTterprlscs: ror 'two-years"

was tbe unanimous nominee of the Re

the state legislature and In 1893 was
speaker of the lower house. This is bis
flrbt terpi as governor.
The Baroness Hengelmuller, wife of
the Austrian minister, who has Just re
turned to Washington for the winter,
finds herself In rather an unpleasant
position. At a state dinner at tbe White
House last spring she created a sensa
tion by refusing to accept tbe arm of
the Mexican embassador, who bad been
assigned to her as escort, or to sit be-
side him at table. Tbe matter greatly
annoyed tbe late president and was ex
plained by the Austrian minister on
tbe ground that neither be nor his wife
could bold any relations whatsoever
with the representative of a govern
ment that bas pot to death his sover
eign's brotber, the 111 fated Emperor
Since then, however, friendly Inter
course bas been established between
tbe Vienna court and tbe Mexican gov
ernment, and It now becomes Incum
bent upon tbe baroness to call upon tbe
Mexican embassadrcss, whose diplo
matic status is superior to that of the
Austrian minister's wife.
Only a woman can fully appreciate
the feelings of the baroness as she
pays the call demanded by diplomatic
etiquette. She will go hi her carriage,
of course, perhaps accompanied by her
husband as far as tbe curb, and her
card will be received with ell dne cere
mony. It Is when she enterMhe draw
lng room that she will either be polite
ly ennbbed or as warmly welcomed as
etiquette permits. She will live
throngb It, however, and will have
many opportunities to repay In kind.
Baroness Hengelmuller ts said to be
tbe most beautiful woman in the diplo
matic corps In Washington. She was
the first society woman In tbe capital
to drive her own automobile and owns
five of these machines, all of different
styles, which she can 'operate la the
most expert manner..
