The President was in his office in noon last July when the names of several prominent Washingtonians were announced.

Committee of Washington, formed to arrange the entertainment for the Forty-Ninth En campment and Fiftieth anniversary of the Grand Review of the G. A.

The spokesman told the president that his help was noeded because it might he the last great gathering of tho veterans who saved the nation in the days of '61.

He. who coming up the unrivaled statue of Palace Athene was finisher, exclaimed that nothing on earth could ever surpass the view before him. Or what Pericles would say?he who though that nowhere except among tho Immortal gods on high Olympus could man ever see any lng that so-would thrill tho human 3ense of beauty as the view of Acro polis finished? Or what would the aristocratic Horatlus say?he, who, aftor being carried through Forum Romanum when that place was at its best In refined beauty, went homo and wrote: "Odio profanum vulgus et arces." (that tho dovlne beauty of the foeum was soilod by the mere presence of the common rablet) I wonder what theso ancient Immortals would say it they could see those monuments of beauty the Aegan race has erected here? Here this race, to which they be longed. has reached the "end of tho Trail," and from yonder, on the Pa cific ocean the Aegans are met by the Orientals, The meeting Is beau tifully symbolized at "the Court of the Unlverac." Never before was such architectural and sculptouro produced representing all ages and all civiliza tions, and the achievements of hu man endeavor in all lines at all times.

And at the base of Mullgardt's tower one may Bit for days and marvel at the sym bolic jtigniflcance in its huge groups. Ah tho sculpture is the key to the Exposition, so Is the "Palace of Pine Arts" its glory as to architecture. It is different from any building ever erected for this purpose. Still I am told that the motive has been taken from the temple of tbo Sun at Ath ens. That is why I wonder what Pericles or Horatlus would say if they could see this. Prom a distance it looks like a fairy palace overgrown with vegetation centuries old. Within it is a temple in the fullest sense of the word. Here one has a feeling of a sincere reverence, ono hardly knows for what. And as you leave the building proper and stand under the doublo corinthian colonnade with the domed ehtunda in front of you and gazo at tho ornamentations, tho exquisite sculpture and Mr. French's beautiful statue of beloved Abraham Lincoln, you feel like folding your hands, kneeling down, pray that all theso wero permanent, so the world coald como and see?and be so much better and richer by the vision. RUEF NOT EXILED, GOVERNOR STATES SACRAMENTO. Aug. 25.?Gov. Hi ram W. Johnson in commenting up on the paroling of Abraham Ruef from San Quentln state prison, today made it plain that Ruef was not "exiled" to Mendocino county by the board of prison directors, but that the board, by his own request, designated that county as his place of residence. The governor says: "For two years past It has been repeatedly stated that Ruef will be treated ex actly like every other man in state prison ? neither more leniently nor more harshly. "The prison directors, notwith standing the agitation in his behalf, required him as they required all others, except in extraordinary cases to serve half his net sentence. He servod half of his net sentence and then was paroled. "San Francisco newspapers have endeavored to make It appear that he has been 'exiled' to Mendocino coun ty. The prison directors merely com plied with Ruefs request that his res idence bo Mendocino county. 'The only comment I would make on the parolo Is that despite pressure beyond description the majority of the prison directors have demonstrated that they will treat ail who may bo confined by the state with absolute impartiality and apply the same rules aliko to a Ruef and to tho weakest and least known prisoner."
