Ancle Sam's liberal Provision for
SOME CAPITOL IMPROVEMENTS
Vaiiiona Fouiulrr r l'olltlr uU(

Once mure the lawmakers of the United
Htatrs arc assembled at the seat of kov
crnment taklnK up tholr leBUlatlvo labors
and onco more thcyare housed In an lm
proved a well as a renovated capltol. If
there la any Ktrurtur In our broad land
that Is maintained In perfect repair "well
Kept up" In overy souse of tho term-It Is
ane the Insoct pests- rind "tree doctors"
have been engaged 'at considerable ex.

to arrest decay.
Of course, the capltol bulldlnjr has had
its annual "bath" on the we of tho re
turn of Its dlstlnaulshed tenants. This
elentudliK of the vast htte marble pllu
by means of clear water hurled agulimt
It with (treat forco Is a formidable task.
Two or three fire engines and a consider,
able, force of firemen to direct the 'reBms
are enKKod for days at a time on this
('ntrrlner In thrj Inner Man, j
Of the actual Improvements made dur- J
lng the last charter of a year at tho '
capltol some of the most Important Im

the congressmen themselves have had ti

and tho attached kltcluns. It Is not to be.

Krouitda as H did elsewhere In the coun-'n-.
and the most unwelcome outcome
was the Joe of a number of tho stately
trees that b&ve won the admiration ut
Itsltors to Wtalngtou In years gono by.
To renulr the havoc the capltol officials
have bean plantlub' a large number of
0UDS trees, and In order that tlunw new.
uiiners may In after ytartt iouaes udded
Uitereat for the people of the nation there'

JIean,'bl)y the offlcluls huvo bestirred

forest nionarchs as thi capltol grounds
lng iiuartera will be parsimonious when
It comes to looking after the wonts of the!
'inner man." However- there. Is auothrr!
factor In this partlgular situation, al
though It Is one that would probably
never he suspected by any person not "on
thn Inside'' at the capltol. Whisper the
secret, though, tho cupltol restaurants
never pay. us a business proposition. !
The presiding officers of the trnale and J
house, rospectlvely, duly delegate 'each'
year some person to operate the capltol '
restaurants, but such have been the mis i
fortunes of one caterer otter another that
mere is no longer any scramo'e tor a po
sition which Is all honor nnd very llttlo
profits. You see, mine host of a capltol
i cafe has u. very limited period of uc-
tlvlt each day. The congressmen are
never there for breakfast, nor for thut
matter Is the generul public that Is also J
permitted to patronlzo tiieso restaurants,
but In rooms apart from thoso reserved
for the distinguished patrons.
Similarly there la no trade tor the even
ing in (Ml except on rare occasions. All
the trade of these unlive -atluc plac
comes In the form of a rush at the noon
hour. Tho upshot iif the matter Is that
for all thnt congress makes all sorts of
coneekslons, such, as free rent, free light
and free heat, these capltol restadrants
I are anything: but a gold mine for the
managers and tho only way In which It
no boast- The trees huvgiueen carefully Mr. possible to attract capable caterers to
rayed at frtxiuwit intervals to dlscour. (the positions Is to provide all possible
conveniences hence these latest Improve
ments. Tho present Improvements Include the
provision of an additional dining room at
the nenata restaurant, whereas the house
of representatives restaurant has been
completely remodeled, with an Inereaso of
spaco and accommodations. A newly In
stalled "steam tnblo" at tho house res
taurant will keep piping hot the favorite
dishes of epicurean representatives, and
on the senate side thero are some new
fixings put In especially for the benefit
of Mrs. Murphy, the senate's famous
official "plo baker,'- who turns out each
day not less thnn fifty pies of the kind
that mother used to make. Newly In
stalled In thn congressional restaurant
also are two refrigerating machines of
four tons capacity each.
Thi' llnrlx-r Shop.
Another nook which will not be recog
nixed by the representatives Is the house
It has now been moved to larger and
better quarters. Tho late autumn Is
painting and papering time at tho cap
ltol. just as It la In many a private resi
dence. Quite a number of tho commit
tee rooms the rooms where the real work
'of congress Is done have been frescoed
and repainted for the coming season. Hev
iral years ago thn powers that be planned
a transformation In the electric lighting
system of the cupltol new Illuminating'
facllltca that will bo at onco moro ef
fcctlvo nnd more artistic, and which In
muny Instances will afford what Is known
as Indirect Illumination rather than the
glaro thnt Is objectionable to so many
people. This new scheme was pushed
forward during thn recess, the new light
ing fixtures of the crystal typo being In
stalled In tho nine special rooms.
The heating and ventilating apparatus
throughout thn capital was carefully
overhauled this autumn, but there was no
opportunity during the recess to Install
the new refrigerating system as there
would have been had not congress hung
around Washington nil last summer. Thta
refrigerating system. It may be explained,
is planned to cool the fresh air as It Is
admitted to the capltol, so thnt the law
makers wilt not suffer so severely when
I they remain In Washington during the
rummer as they felt obliged to do this
year The copltol la already provided
with an elaborate system for forcinc
fresh air Into the big bulldhig by means
of powerful fans and thero are oven
facilities for "washing" this air so tlat
It will bo free from Impurities, but means
of cooling the precious ozone- has hereto,
fore been lacking.
To supply this defect congress has ap
propriated the sum of $70,000. It seems
likely that a porfect refrigerating system
will cost even more than that, but the
lawmakers are not going to bulk nt ex
pense and have Instructed the superin
tendent of the big building to go ahead
and secure for them the boon of Iced air
If it can be had nt any reasonable price.
Decidedly the most Important of the
changes when It comes to real novelty
Is the new underground railway which
has been provided for conveying I'nlted
States senators and their friends back
and forth between the capltol and the
senate office, building, located soma two
blocks away. Ever since tho senate and
house, office buildings were completed
soveral years ago they havebeen con
nected with the capltol by electric lighted
tunnels. The representatives have walked
back and forth through their "tube." but
the venerable senators have ben con
veyed In unlfjue electric automobiles spe
cially built for this subterranean speed
way. Unfortunately these motor cars have
not proved entirely satisfactory. They
broke down sometimes at moments In
opportune for the dignity of tho senator.,
and they have been expensive to main
tain. Now there is being substituted for
these motors what Is known as a monorail
line-- very picturesque transportation
scheme whereby a car capable of holding
twelve s buspendrd from a rati hung like
saddle bags on a horse and whisked
along at a lively gait, making the round
trip between the senate building and the
capltol In a very few minutes. Then
monorail Hues havo been used to somu
oxtent In Germany! but they aro a new
thing hcrr, and the one which Is now
building at tho capltol Is untlko any other
In the world.
House llnplit Transit,
The lower house is. nevertheless. Inter
esting Itself In connecting links for the
two buildings, and to that end there has
been Installed a remarkable pneumatic
tube system, about 700 feet In length, for
the transfer of malls, books, etc., between
the capltol and the house office building.
Strictly speaking maybe, this shouldn't
be culled a pnoumatlo tube, becauso un
like tho pneumatic tubes operated at tho
poutotliccs In New York and other lurge
cities It Is operated by suction Instead of
by compressed ulr. Anyway, this new
rapid transit lino Is especially Interesting
becauso the tubo Is eighteen Inches in
diameter, or nearly twice the sire of tho
lmilar tubes at Now York and elsewhere.
It Is entirely automatic In Its action, and
It sends scooting Its full length a heavily
loaded mall sack Just as easily, appar
ently, as the pneumatic carrier In tho
uveragc department store brings the cus
tomer's change from the cashier's desk.
The closing sefslon of tho present con
gress will find It simply Imperative to
mako some provisions for the bigger con
gress that will succeed it. This Is the last
year 'n which there will bo less1 than -too
, reprcentntive8. Next year, thanks to the
i Hhowlng of Increased population made by
I the last census nnd the consequent re
apportionment, Tnele Sam will have 4SJ
J representatives on his hands. Some nr-
ningemcni win navo to ne maae lor seal

the present desks and armchairs from

TRYING TO SUPPRESS BOOK
UotliRchllds (io Into Court to Pre.
vent Publication of l'amllr
Utcrary London Is Keenly Interested In
the efforts which are being made by the
London house of llothschllds to stop the
publication of a book dealing with the
history of the famous financial family,
Tlio volume Is entitled "The Romance of
the Itothschllds" and the publisher Is
Everlelgh Nash, who, It Is understood,
told his friends that he was determined
to go on with the book despite the ob
jections of the Rothschilds. Arrange
ments have also been made by Nash for
simultaneous publication of the "ro
mance" In America by the Putnams.
The attempts to suppress the book have
already taken a legal form. The Roths
childs applied to Justice Ballhache,
England's newest member of the bench.
In chambers, for an Injunction against
Nash. As reports of such proceedings
in camera are prohibited, no mention of
the case lias been made in any English
papers for fear of Incurring prosecution
for contempt of court,
Judge Ballhache's hearing on the appli
cation for an Injunction occupied twenty
minute',. It la stated. The counsel for
the Rothschilds argued that the book
contained libelous matter and Instanced
a story which he alleged It contained of
how Nathan Rothschild, founder of the
London branch of the firm, maae a large
amount of mnney after the battla of
Waterloo. Nathan was In Paris when he
received private word that Napoleon had
been defeated on the Uelgian battlefield.
He lasted to London In hot haste and
arrived at the stock exchange next
morning, worn, weary and travel stained.
The Loudon Stock Exchange was at
that lime alive with reports that Well
tngton had been worsted and stocks
were tumbling. Rothschild, who could
have stopped the slump with a single
word announcing Napoleon's defeat, said
nothing. His woc-begone appearance,
due really to the fatigue of his hurried
Journey, was attributed to his depression
over tho financial losses he was sup-
' posed to have Incurred, and some of his
I friends opn1y expi eased their sympathy
I According to the story told In "The Ro-
mance of the Hnthfchtlds," Nathan not
,on!y allowed them to remain under that
false impression, but encouraged it.
Meanwhile, his agents were quletty hu
lng up all the consols they could obtalr
In preparation for the rise which followed
the receipt of nows that It was Welling,
ton, not Napoleon, who had gained the
day on tho field of Waterloo.
As the counsel for the llothschllds cited
this story as ground for Injunction, Jus
tlco Uailhachet Interposed the remark.
"It's a long tlmo since Waterloo." other
arguments advanced by the Rothschild s
counsel were equally witnout effect on
tho Judge, who summarily dismUeed the
application for an injunction.
Notice of appeal was given by tu'
Rothschild lawyers, and It is expected
that unless the Rothschilds prefer to
avoid the publicity of a trlai in open
court the matter will soon be heard
Mr. Nash refused to speak of the mat
ter as being a case which was in a sense
subjudlce. in another form the story
of Nathan Rothschild's Waterloo coup
appears In the Encyclopaedia nritannlca.
Tho sensitiveness of the Rothschild
family was recently shown by their ac
tion toward the play, "The Klvo Frank
furters," on its production In Germain
and later on ita being brought out ii
London. The, objections to its produc
tion here are reported to have taken the
form of representations to the Lord
Chamberlain's office. The censor, how
ever, saw no reason for not licensing the
play. This was given at the Lyrlo the
ater with such great success on the
opening night that the subsequent shoit
run of the piece was a cause of much
astonished comment. Among the theories
suggested to explain the mystery was,
that the withdrawal of the piece In ap
parently the full tide of success was not
unconnected with financial inducements,
which the house of Rothschild was well
qualified to make.-London Correspond
