THE WASI'GTON TBIES, TUESDAY, MARCH 4 1913.
WILSON, UP EARLY,
Goes Into Hall Half-Clad to
Get His Shoes, and Then
Eats Breakfast Alone.
A sleepy plainclothes man ' on tlio
fourth floor of the Slioreliain Hotel,
rubber his eyes xisorously at S o'clock
this morning at an apparition that
peered through a half-opened door,
stepped gingerly out into the hall, half
clad, and grabbed a pair of shoes that
had been left outside i the door to be
blacked ilinus the glasses and'a "few
habilmenls. tli'e watchman had llfficulty
in recognizing the angular figure as that
of the incoming Presldent'of the United
States. It was Woodrow Wilson.
AVlth his .vlioes in hi hand, the President-elect
slipped back into his room,
got out his shaving paraphernalia,
stropped his old-fashioned razor, and
Wilson went to bed at 11 o'clock last
night. Oire. Wilson decreed that he
j-liould go to bed at 11. und her husband
obeyed. Sirs. Wilson saw that he went
to hisjoonvat that hour, and then went
to her room for rest.
People Astir Early.
Long before 8 o'clock the corri
dors on the' fourth floor were occa
sionally peopled w'tii eager folks.
Host of the thirty-eight relatives were
astir early and tip-toeing along the
corridor, sought out their- baggage
from a heap of trunks, suit cases, and
bags that l'ttered the hallway. There
were whispered conferences, subdued
peals of laughter, and exchange of
Baby oJsepliine Cothran, a grand
niece of thePresIdent-e lect. was one
ot the very first of the Wilsons to be
astir. She toddled up the corridor
guarded by her colored "mammy" and
Miss Jessie Wilson, emerging from
her room, engulfed the little lady in a
laughing embrace, sitting down on
the floor of the hallway, the better to
exchange confldenceswith her. Miss
Eleanor Wilson came out of her room
carrying a" big bolster over her shoul
der which she flung laughingly in her

Woodrow, the two young sons of Joseph
Woodrow, of Columbia, S. C, joined the
Wilson girls in the corridor next. The
two boys are great "pals" of the President-elect's
daughters, rind they scurried
off to a corner of the hall to exchange
experience, look out the window at the
over-cast sky and excitedly comment on
what the day would brjng forth. Stifled
laughter and a good "rigging" awaited
CoL. Thomas IT. ,Birch, who has acted
as the Executive-elect's military secre
tary. Colonel Birch appeared today in
his full regalia of gold lace, gilt but
tons and a sword. The Wilson's weren't
used to seeing him la such style, and
the. younger folks, who are the chum
miest sort of friends with the colonel,
poked fun at him.
Short Time To Eat
President-elect Wilson was ready for
breakfast before his wife and daughters
hail finished buttoning up their dresses,
and so he had his meal brought into
&is room. He finished it in no time,
and was ready for the day.
"Good morning," he nodded to one
.of the newspaper correspondents who
happened by just as Wilson was peer
ing out into the corridor, watching the
relatives sort out their "baggage and
noting with a smile their excited de
meanor. "How's the weather outside?" he con
tinued. The correspondent said the prospects
"That's fine." he remarked em
"Did you sleep' well?'' he was asked.
"I rested nicely and I feel very well
At 9 .o'clock 200 newspaper men clam
ored for admission and Wilson smilingly
submitted to their questioning and was
particularly interested in their inef
ectual attempts to elicit from him the
exact personnel of his Cabinet. Mean
while a clatter of hoofs on the asphalt

Incoming Executive, were assembling,

fast alone in his room this morn

three Wilson girls were dressing
and the incoming Executive de

Wilson's breakfast consisted of half
a grape fruit, oatmeal, two raw
eggs, and a glass of cool water
