Adjoining the capitol grounds 13
the Library of Congress, said to he
one of the finest public buildings
in the world. The building is of
the Italian Renaissance order of
architecture,, and is three stories
high, capped with a magnificent
dome crowned with gold foil. The
walls stand G9- feet high from the
foundation. It has nearly 2,009
windows. There is- a broad street
on either side of- tlm building..
The building is of white granite,,
mid is beautified inside and outside
with-ornaments and decorations.
It covers nearly 3 acres of ground,
and i3 a monument of the exceed ing.
prodigality of our government.
The White House was undergo
ing repairs, and the publje was not
permitted to enter the grounds. I
was sorry I could not enter the
world-famed residence of -our Pres
idents. But I had the pleasure on
two occasions-of seeing President
Roosevelt. The President reminds
me of the late lamented John A.
Barnes (the "Old Governor" or
"Butt-cut of Democracy"). of our
county, except the President look
ed "ruffer" and perhaps more bur
ly and less-handsome.
The Corcoran Art Gallery was
founded aud endowed by the late
William W. v '-coran in 1SC0 as a
gift to the pubhv or the perpetual
establishment and encouragement
of', the fine arts. Its collections
have grown to extent and value uiir
til now the Corcoran is one of the
chief places of interest in Wash-
-r. i 1.1 , K...M.1
inglOn. It occupies nuuie Limit
ing constructed of Georgia white
marble above whose entrance is
the inscription chosen by Mr. Cor
coran:: "Dedicated to Arts"" It
contains the finest sculptures I
ever saw in any collection, not-excepting
those nt the capitol.
The Carnegie Library, , not' yet
completed, is-a beautiful structure
of white marble,, hnd is situated
wear the White House.
I passed the Treasury building
several times,.but did no enter in
to it; It is-a stone building of im.
mense-proportions, and is Uncle
Sam's baub-. In my poverty I
could not gett my consent to go m -
io ft place -of so much rich treasure
and not be allowed to pluck some
The Bureau of Engraving and
Printing is a fine building, and is
a branch of the Treasury. Here
are printed the Government bonds
national currency, postage and rev-
enue stamps, military, naval and
and diplomatic commissions, pass
ports, etc. I spent a half day in
the building and saw the work be
ing done there. It takes 30 days
to make one greenback bill. But,
the department turns out a million
dollars a day and this is taken to
the Treasury and stored away and
to be paid out as needed for the
expenses of the Government.
I visited the navy yard and saw
men making canwn, some of the
big guns being 40 feet long. I saw
there some of the greatest machin
ery in the world.
A little incident occurred after
leaving the Library of Congress
that I will relate. I lunched with
Old Man Peck and his Bad Boy
and Mrs. Bad Boy. The Bad Boy
played off one of his fine jokes on
the old man,, in consequence of
which the old man got drunk and
went to the devil ta ta.
