this week. Early Monday morning
he started out, and has been going
steadily ever since, and expects to
leave for Spartanburg for the Christ
mas recess as soon as he finishes his
visits to the various parts of the city.
Mr. Johnson has been in Washing

thing about the "points of interest"
that are so numerous in the capital.
Rut there are other tilings in Wash
ington that arc interesting him this
week. He is sightseeing, but he is
tiding it officially, for the purpose of
securing information with respect to
the items of the $35,000,000 appro-1
priation bill of which he will be in
charge on the lloor of the house soon
after the reconvening of congress in
The object of this visit is to Inspect
the various buildings which the gov
ernment is renting from private own
ers in Washington. He wishes to In
vestigate for himself the character
of the quarters for which the public
Is paying, the condition In which they
are kein, and such things as that. I.t
is customary for the Republican
members of the committee?:-who
have controlled it for 16 years?to
approve the rents wlthou'l any ac
