SOUTHERN BUILDING
115th and H Streets N.W.
The Southern Building at present has nine
stories. Being completed only fifteen months ago,
it is of strictly modern architecture and equipped
i i r *r . ii* r i i
with every business lacinty, including iour nignspeed
elevators which run at minute intervals. The
original plans of the architects (the well known
firm of D. H. Burnham & Co. of Chicago) provided
for the construction of eleven stories, instead of
nine. The management contemplates the early
erection of these two additional stories, in order to
meet the demands for space made by various clubs,
social organizations and business corporations
which cannot now be accommodated.

S AM L EI. F. TAPPAX.
Col, Samnel P. Tappan, a member of the
Sherman commission to pacify the Indians
in ist>7 and 1S(>8, and a Colorado
newspaper man and soldier of note, who
died in Washington last week, although
little known to the present generation,
was regarded in many respects as one
of the most remarkable men of his day.
Coincident with his death is being re
called the fact that it was through his
introduction that Henry M. Stanley found
employment on the New York Herald,
which afterward resulted in the younger
newspaper man finding the explorer Livingstone
in. Africa.
Col. Tappan's opportunity to perform
this service for Stanley, and, as it proved,
for the world at large, came about
through his membership in the Indian
peace commission, appointed soon after
the close of the civil war to pacify the
plains Indians, many of whom had taken
advantage of the fact that the national
troops were occupied elsewhere to make
trouble on the frontier.
d
Col. Tappan's meeting with Stanley was
only one interesting episode in a life
which was filled with interesting experiences.
When he died he had passed his
eighty-second hbirthday annoversary, but,
owing to his advanced age and retiring
disposition, he was unknown to the present
generation.
Born in Manchester-by-t lie-Sea, in
Massachusetts, in IKtu, he had grown
to ripe manhood before the beginning
of the great war and into decided convictions
against the holding of slaves
in the United States. As a young man he
made the acquaintance of Horace Greeley
of the New York Tribune, ancj when
the anti-slavery agitation in Kansas began
to claim national attention he
sought and obtained an appointment from
Mr. Greeley to represent his paper 011
that turbulent frontier. He spent several
years participating in and recording
the stirring events of the time which
introduced "Bleeding Kansas" to the
reading world. John Brown was a personal
acquaintance and Guerilla Quantrell
a byword.
Joins in Bush for Gold.
Even while Kansas was claiming more ,
than the ordinary share of attention Tappan's
roving disposition led him to a still ,
farther exploration of the then almost
unknown west. The announcement of
the discovery of gold in the Pikes Peak
region in 1S5X appealed to him so strongly
that he joined one of the first overland
expeditions to the new Klderado.
as what now is Colorado then was called.
There lie continued to represent the Tribune.
and some of the first descriptions
of life in that then terra incognita were ,
written by him for his paper. In addition
to his work for the Trlhnns Mr Ta.<
pan engaged in local journalism. 11c was
an assistant on the Herald, one of the
first newspapers of Denver, and In that
connection had many rare and thrilling
experiences.
When the call came for troops to defend
the west against <Jen. Sibley's invasion
from Texas, as it did early in 1SU1,
Colorado responded resolutely. There
then were only about in.ooo people in the
territory, hut a large majority of them ]
were men, and a requisition for two companies
was responded to by enough recruits
to constitute two regiments.
By this time .Mr. Tappan had transplanted
the scene of his activities from :
Denver to the gold mining section in 1
Gilpin county.^ He raised one of the two
first companies of the 1st Colorado Regi- |:
mcnt. affectionately known as "Colorado's
Pet ljambs." All the members of
the Tappan company were mountaineers. 1
They were Inured to every hardship of
frontier life, and many of them were
utterly reckless of their lives. They were
good soldiers so long as there was something
to do, but they demanded constant
? employment. As they marched from Gilpin
county to Denver under Capt. Tappan
? they were armed in the main with re~~
volvers. Doubtless they presented an odd
I appearance when they made their appearance
on the streets of the capital
city, and the southern contingent manifested
a disposition to poke fun at them.
Praises Colorado Regiment.
Col. Tappan believed to the day of his
death that the work of the 1st Colorado
Regiment had failed to receive due recognition
from the country at large. It
fought the battle of Glorieta almost unaided.
To this tight, though of but small
dimensions when measured by the number
engaged, he attributed a powerful
*in fHvintr /I {rr.nti..rt /? ? 1
I_?. ... o- - n ?i? w nuii ftUV t'l If
mental conditions in the mountain region.
Mr. Tappan was not alone in believing
that the plans of the secessionists comprehended
the seizure of the entire country
from Kansas to California, and tills
opinion was supported by the maneuvers
of Sibley's command
I Gen. Sibley was an experienced officer
of the regular army and he led a valiant
force of Texans which numbered 1,.VK>
or men. Early in the spring of
l.siil he headed toward the northwest
from Texas, and he carried all before
him until he encountered the Colorado
troops at a little Mexican settlement
called Glorieta. in the mountains lying
between Santa Fe and Fort I'nion not
far from the Colorado line, hut in New
Mexico. He had captured Albuquerque
and Santa Fe, both considerable centers,
and had left Gen. Canby in his rear, apparently
effectually bottled up.
Leaving Santa Fe, Sibley headed northward,
supposedly with a view of proceeding
to Denver, Col. Tappan always
believed that it was his purpose to make
headquarters In that city, form an alliance
with Brigham Young, then supreme
in I'tah, and to make conquest of the
entire country to the coast. If such was
the purpose it was frustrated at Glorieta.
While the southerners were hurrying
north the Coloradans had been dying
southward. By this, timt? the regiment
had acquired its full quota of ten well
rounded companies, every man of which
was a resourceful tighter. Some of them
had fought Indians and a few had taken
part in the war with Mexico, but In the
main they, were undisciplined. .There
were enough additions to bring the fighting
strpngth of thp command up to 1.350.
(.'apt. Tappan had bppn promoted to bp
lieutenant colonel. He was second in
command and led the cavalry contingent.
The two forces met near the mouth of
Apache canyon. Evidently the southerners
were much worn by forced marches,
but they fought bravely. The conflict
waged ail day. but at night the Sibley
forces withdrew. The triumph was complete.
The southern expedition to the
northwest was abandoned: Sibley made
a rapid retreat southward and the new
Colorado troops were permitted to turn
their attention to the enemy in other
quarters.
Continues With the Army.
After the close of the war Col. Tappan
continued with the army in command of
small posts on the frontier. It was while
thus employed that he became engaged
in a controversy with one of his former
fellow-ofllcers of the 1st Colorado which
at the time attracted national attention.
The other officer was J. M. Chivington.
who was a major in tho regiment at the
time of the Olorieta fight, hut afterward
rose to the command of the regiment as
its colonel. He was responsible for what
is known as the Sand creek massacre.
Finding several hundred Indians encamped
on Sand creek, a small stream
in southeastern Colorado, he fell upon
them before daylight one morning and
killed all the members of the band with
a few exceptions. The slaughter includ
ed women and children as well as men.
When the facts came out there was a
general storm of Indignation. Tappan's
sense of justice was touched, and as a
former officer of the command he felt
especially humiliated by the awful
tragedy. He joined with others in demanding
a military inquiry and never
ceased to denounce the action of Chivington.
Tappan's attitude toward this affair
had much to do with his selection as a
member of the Sherman commission. This
commission was in existence during the
greater part of the years ltM?7 and lSdS.
It had but started upon its career when
Stanley called upon its members at
Omaha. He had just arrived from Colorado.
and the fact of his acquaintance in
that territory was sufficient recommendation
to Tappan. Stanley then was a
hardy young man and he wanted to go
with the commission. He was without
funds and in order to accomplish his purpose
must have employment. There was
no place in connection with the commission's
work to give him. but. finding that
he could write. Tappan offered to turn
over to him the correspondence for the
Tribune, which he still held. Stanley
accepted and throughout the extended
tours was Tappan's tent mate and traveling
companion.
Stanley Sent to Africa.
The commission's work completed, Stan
ley went to New York, armed with letters
from Tappan to the Tribune staff.
He had formed the idea of going; to Africa
to report the wars being wage?j at
the time by King John of Abyssinia, but,
unwilling to commission him to such a
task themselves, the Tribune editors recommended
him to their neighbors of the
Herald. He was promptly employed and
sent to Mr. Bennett at Paris for further
instructions. Then followed the search
for IJvingstone, which made him famous.
Col. Tappan always spoke with admiration
and affection for the great explorer.
He said that he was a man of reserve,
but that he had a peculiar influence over
the Indians, a quality to which the colonel
attributed much of iiis success in dealing
with the savage tribes of the dark continent.
He gave Tappan a coat of mail
which he said he had taken from a Turkish
brigand in Asia Minor in adventures
whicli he had had there before meeting
the colonel, and in turn Col. Tappan presented
it to the National Museum of thfs
city.
Col. Tappan had resided in Washington
for the past twenty-five years. He lived
quietly. Indeed, after his associates of
the civil war period passed away he seldom
went out. He was buried last Wednesday
in Arlington national cemetery by
a few of his surviving military comrades.
HEARINGS CONDUCTED
ON MILIHA PAY BILL
I
Col. Harvey of District Guard
Voices His Views on
* Pending Measure.
Two hearings were held yesterday by
the House rules committee on the militia
pay bill being urged by the National
Guard Association of the I'nited States
in order to enter a special rule for
parly consideration of the measure. Col.
William E. Harvey, commanding the ;
2d Infantry, N. G. D. C., and member
of the executive committee of the association,
addressed the committee in j
the afternoon on some phases of the bill I
in the light of the Constitution of the
United States.
The committee was anxious to get tlie
views of Col. Harvey 011 section 5 .
of the militia pay bill, which authorizes ,
the President to transfer to the army
any portion of the National Guard "in
time of war or when war is imminent, or
in other grave emergencies."
Views of Col. Harvey.
Briefly, Col. Harvey, after expounding ^
the constitutional idea of the militia,
said:
"Of course, the United States govern- ]
ment cannot make conscripts of us, and
this passage of the bill is only a contract.
The government says to all
those who are already in the organized
militia, 'I^et us pay you so much a
month, and then if we need you we will
transfer you to the army.' " i
"Would that leave state organizations 1
intact in time of peace?" he was asked. v
"Undoubtedly."
Others who made statements were .
Gen. E. C. Young of Illinois, Gen. Chase
of Colorado, Gen. Obar of Georgia and W
Gen. Fridge of Mississippi. The com- E
mittee will hold further hearings. s

An active campaign in the interest of
the bill introduced by Representative
Johnson, chairman of the House Dis- 3
trict committee, providing for a wider t
use of school buildings in the District f
of Columbia will be waged by the r
Woman's Alliance of All Souls' Church.
At a recent meeting of this society ]
appointment of a committee to urge i
passage of the bill by Congress was 1
authorized. The alliance favors the i
amendment recommended by the Dis- i
trict Commissioners which, if favorably
acted upon, will make the school
buildings available for civic meetings, t
According to information presented to 1
the alliance by Edgar S. Martin, super- c
visor of playgrounds, in a speech deliv- r

EColds Appointments Should Be Made
for Good of People, Not Politics.
Had Gov. Wood row Wilson hen sittin?
11 one of the galleries of the House of
tepresentatives yesterday afternoon he
ron Id have heard as tine a lesson in
iiaking up a presidential cabinet as has
teen presented to the American Confess
for many a day. The lesson was
iven by Representative Sims of Tennesee,
who drew his text from something
Villiam J. Bryan had written in an
(iitorial in the Commoner. The democrats
ook the cabinet-making instructions with
IfHl Sf?riUUMlt*M5| clUU lilt* ii.|/u uiivanc
sked Mr. Sims if he were describing
imself. Prominent democrats who have

iepresentatlve Henry of Texas, Repreontative
Burleson of the same state and
iepresentatlve Palmer of Pennsylvania,
icre all ears and attention and applauded
trongly.
The chapter on cabinet making will
?e published in the Congressional Record.
Quotes Bryan Editorial.
In the Commoner editorial, as read by
Jr. Sims as a prelude, Mr. Bryan wrote
bat cabinet appointments should be made
or the good of the people and not to
epay political debts.
"Whether we be Bryanites or antiBryanites."
said Mr. Sims, "I think we
must ail agree with the ideas and principles
advocated in that article. We see
n great deal stated in the newspapers
about who is to be in the cabinet. I desire
to say that the kind of men I want
to see in the cabinet are men who will
ell the President the truth though th?
leavens fall, without either exaggerating
>r minimizing. The President, as it were,
nust look through the cabinet to see th*
onditlons of tho country. The cabinet is
Ln a way the eyes of the President. When
I was a youth I read that under the
Knglish law they did not punish the king
or any wrongdoing, but they punished
his advisers and coachers. I thought at
the time that it was a great outrage, but
I have since concluded that it was a very
wise provision of law. Those who get
next to the President and mislead him
should be punished. I would be in favor
>f hanging these misinformers."
Lauds Wilson's Judgment.
Representative Sims said that Gov.
iVilson had shown himself to be a man
if sound judgment:
"He has the judgment to do the right
Lhing If he can only have the facts
presented to him without prejudice and
without bias. It makes no difference
to me who the man is who goes into
the cabinet so long as he be a man ol

. } But above all must he forget himself
I and forget his friends, and if he has
enmities he must forget them, and tell
the President the plain truth, and let
the President's judgment rest upon a
: clear understanding of the facts."
"Is the gentleman complaining now of
what he thinks the President-elect is
going to do?" asked Representative j
Garner of Texas. Mr. Sims replied in
the negative,
j "Is the gentleman writing Gov. Wilson
a letter through the columns of the
, Congressional Record advising him
! as to what he thinks he ought to do?"
pressed Mr. Garner.
"I am not intending in this way to advise
the President," returned Mr. Sims.
! "I am trying to point out what I think
would be an ideal member of the cabinet.
Mann Starts Laughter.
: Representative Mann of Illinois aroused
laughter with this question:
"Is not the gentleman telling what he
will do when lie- is it member of the
cabinet?"
"I have no idea, not the slightest conception,
of being so honored," replied Mr.
Sims, gravely.
"Has the gentleman anybody in mind
who will fill the bill?" asked I'ncle Joe
i *'i nnnll
"1 have noboilv in mind." returned Mr. I
Sims. "I think that within the last hundred
years Presidents have been preju- J
diced unduly against some people, and
have been persuaded to reward others
.unjustly by reason of the false information
given them. Where a man secretly,
under the Ruise of friendship, in order to
attain some other end than the public
welfare. Rives poor advice, he otiRht to
hang, just as did the false advisers of the
king.
"Therefore. 1 do not think that such a
position ought to be sought, or that It
our lit to be lobbied for, or that men
ought to be appointed by reason of their
extraordinary willingness to serve, but
that they shbuld be selected with reference
to the public welfare, with no other
motive than that the public good is to be
i enhanced, and not the ends of some private
citizens to be promoted."

three men grabbed hold of his throat and
choked him, while another assisted in
throwing him to the pavement.
Realizing the men were after his
money, Mr. Casey put up a desperate
light and shouted for help. His outcries.
it is believed, frightened his assailants
off before they succeeded in getting
bis roll of bills.
Mr. Casey went to the fourth precinct

his experience. He said the three men
are about eighteen or twenty years old.
He was able to give a description of one

The enrollment of women as members 1
and their active partieipation in the meetings
of the organization was urged last 1
night by President David L. Selke in an '
address at the annual meeting of the
Connecticut Avenue Citizens' Association, '
at the Army and Navy Preparatory '
School. Women have been eligible to
membership since the inception of the ;
association, ana j\ir. Se iko pointed out i'
this fuct last night an<i advised that the}'

fair sex.
Mr. Selkc said that although the asso- '
ciatioti in the past year had grown in
membership from thirty-two to more than '
100, its membership was still far too low 1
when the fact is taken into consideration '
that there are to 4,quo persons living
in the territory dealt with by the asso- i
ciation. <
Things to Be Requested. i
Among the things to requested by the
association in the near future, he said,
will he more adequate pdlfee and tire
protection and more public schools. The
car company also will come in for a few j
requests such as cleaner t ars, better ventilation
and express service.
As a special entertainment was given
last night tlrere were many women present.
The election of officers was the only I
