HAS CLEVER SCHEME
"LAME DUCK PARLOR"
FOR CERTAIN CALLERS
New White House Arrangement Made
Neoettsary by Numerous Applicants
from Congressmen Who Did Not
"Come Back" Washington Gossip.
Washington, D. C They have
changed the Interior appointments of
the white house the internal archi
tecture, so to speak so as to provide
a nice, comfortable substitute for the
time-honored navigation of Salt river
by politicians who didn't come back
on November 8. One of the spacious
corridors of the executive offices has
been converted into an additional
waiting room, to accommodate an as
tonishingly Increased number of call
ers since the president's return from
Rnm astute Individual discovered
that about 90 per cent of this daily
crowd who sought the presidential
presence were "lame ducks' seeking
some nice, soft berth to occupy after
Mwh 4. AlthouKh this is the open
season for Jobs, so many are the
huntsmen and so keen the fervor of
the chase, that the poor hunted berths
are nearly all run to cover.
Naturally the white house Is the
Dreaerve where the game Is thickest.
Energetic huntsmen frequent the
executive offices faithfully. They do
not Intend to be far away when the
nrpnlilnt lets a. lob loose.
And so It happens that the list of
wRitlnir callers has been extraordi
narily augmented during these last
fw weeks. A hundred or so Job-
hunters made a brave showing, but
they have overcrowded the Bpacious
reception rooms at the executive of
fices so that the patriots who have
other business at the white house than
chasing down vacancies on the gov-;
ernment payroll get lost In the shuf
fle. The "Jobbed" ones didn't like to
rub elbows with tha tentative Job
less. So Secretary Charles D. Norton de
cided on the architectural arrange
ment above described, in order to
separate the sheep from the goats.
Those who call to point out to the
president their fitness for such-and-
such a Job, and to recall to his mind
tholr varied services for the party,
are horded into the new reception
room which Is merely a corridor
scroonod off from the vestibule, nice'
ly decorated with chairs and green
palms. This new room has come to
be known definitely as "Lame Duck
Senator Thomas Carter of Mon
tana, was the first of the clan of the
soon-to-be-Jobless to occupy the cor
ridor. Senator Depew of New Tork,
who will be succeeded by a democrat
was another "lame duck" among the
first to warm the leather on a chair
i- In the alley.
Rep. Kennedy of Ohio, who was
swirled out of place by that tidal
wave of November 8, has been almost
a dally called. Representative Cocks,
who succumbed with Stimson In New
York, has been on the Job. Many
other injured members have been
much In evidence. , , J i-
Batea Was Slandered.
, But the saddest blow of all came
to Representative Arthur L. Bates,
of the 26th Pennsylvania district
"breesed" 'into the executive offices
the other day, still thinking grateful
ly of the 1100 majority with which the
constituents of his district had ex
pressed their preference for him over
"Sorry you weren't elected, Bates,"
: was the greeting he received from a
"Yes, It was too bad," Joined in an
"I sympathise with you," added
"But I was re-elected," replied the
"Well, all the news we've read was
that you went down," they replied,
Bates was a bit put out that his
1100 majority hadn't attracted atten'
tion, but he went In to see President
"Bates, I certainly shall miss you
next year," condoled the chief execu
tive. "It seems too bad to lose you."
"But, I am re-elected by 1100 ma
jority," shouted Bates. "Every
where I go somebody sympathises
with me. I don't wont any sympathy

State Department Luxury. , V
If soma young man, the son of poor
but honest parents, has the qualifi
cations for a diplomatic Job and wants
one, he probably can have It by ap
plying to Secretary of State Knox
and giving the necessary references.
Secretary Knox has no objoctlons to
the rich. He himself can afford to
maintain a city home, a country place
and choose the livery of his coach
man to match the color of his horses.
But one must keep up appearances.
Things have come to such a pass that
the state department Is rapidly de
' veloplng Into a target for hostile crit
icism as a putocratlc Institution, not
merely tinted, but smeared all over,
with affluence, like Mr. Mldlaa To
balance things, It Is necessary to have
a few young gentlemen who can con
sistently take up the high cost of liv
ing cry and give the touch of healthy
democracy to this executive depart
ment, which is on the verge of being
engulfed with luxury. The strain of
trying to look por Is rapidly becom
ing too great for the state department
officials to bear.
As things stand now not mention
Ing the diplomats In tho foreign ser
vice, who are kullty of being enor
mously wealthy there are a goodly
number of offenders of this charac
ter, right here at horn. Tho secre
tary himself can afford to choose be
tween the automobile and the horse.
Assistant Secretary Wilson, when tn
need of relaxation, can rua over to
New York and Jump on tho Lusttanla.
Third Assistant Chanler Hale Is not
pinched with penury either.
But listen, how things have chang
ed even In the lower ranks.
Hugh Gibson, secretary to the as
sistant secretary, who ranks as a sec
retary of embassy on the diplomatic
list, works eighteen hours out of
twenty-four. When anything Is
wanted, Gibson gets It. If it is nec
essary to do some overtime' work, ,Jthe
poor government clerk, who gets down
at nine o'clock, goes home, and Gib
son, who is usually on the Job at 7:30,
says and does It. When he gets twen
ty minutes off 'for luncheon, Gibson
rushes over to the Metropolitan club,
and bolts a wretched pheasant, or bit
of email, and hurried back to the
Another recent addition to the de
nartment's force is Arthur Orr. of

London embassy before he came to
