' 'aiUltltuiSlnoiis. demands .of. senators, re-
Stje.sts of represents lives and the impor
tunities of hursdrods of .otliers" below this
Dfilcja] grade. The consequence 5s that
ihe President 3s. confmca to his . ensce
practically every li our of the day. When
sot listening io the various matters laid
bct6re' him by the cabinet: officers, con
pressmen and others;; he mutt, in the
lolitary moments of his office 2nd house,
pivc consideration to' the "requests and
questions laid: before him. . .
President ItOosCvelt is a most ardent
'(over ".of out-door, sport, and the confine-
Went of his oflice is irKsome to him, if
too long:-. -. Consequently he is
;xr»oricncelng great relief -during the
holidays, when he is permitted, by the
lbser.ee of senators and representatives.
\o "escape, the; .ey«'ry-<lay, grind of his of-
Jce while Congress Is here. Just before
Jhe holidays oliiciar ■announcement was
aade thai President Roosevelt would see j
Icvr callers, and that he would keep no i
j*e£ular ofiice hours. Tho announcement :
',£ being- literally. Jived up to. ssid the
President. wUli the oxceptJon of Cabinet
days, is. out of his office, a great deal"of.
his * time. He is sixjcylng the exercJee
rcost ? pleasant ano agreeable to him—
'.hat of horseback riding. The Presi-
Sent, as Is well kiiOfm. rides with grace
snd c-ase, and hiis the tenacity of a
rowboy. in. remaining firmly in the, sad*
13©. His blooded,' ' high-spirited horse
ij.nr.ot go too fast* or have too many
j:a!ts for- him. Tlie jostling and jolting,
infi the 3>t-en winter winds, cause tho
blood .to 'pulsate through ' him, and evory
V<An to run fast with the animation -of
arid vigor. If the President haa
Vfeen \b\e to dispose of the Venezuelan
question sooner, he would not have "had
Ip remain in his oJTice nearly as much-as
Sc has. With this out of the r.-ay he will
have &. -.number of hoors each day.
v His '.' ..riding ..companions arc Senator
Lb;dge, r lhss bosom' friend: General Lapn
trd Wood, of whom he thinks a great
£ea.i; and. for. viiiom' he has deep admira
tion;. Secretary " Root, his closest cabinet
aflxiseri and' others who are good horse
men. .It takes a good horseman, too. to
keep pace with ..the President. The
weather/ makes no diU'erence to him. 1
Vv^hether the rain" is pouring In torrents,
■whether the thenndmetcr registers zero,
or whether it goes, .to the o,xtrenie and is
iOO--'iii the. .shaded 3ie gets the same lively
tiatisfaciion out' of a long ride. It is re
called, thai, when Prince* Hehr'y was' here,
the President 'invited him to go on a
r/oreeback ride. They, got to the out
skirts of the city, when the .* hardest
thunder-storm and rain-: in years over
took them. The President did not change'
his course vfor an instant, and for two
hours he and Prince Henry, galloped. 'up
liiil and down, over roads and through
wods. At Chicfcamauga" in 'September,
when the President .-visited Chattanooga,
he mounted the finest calvary h6rse at
the army post there, and rode the troop
ers of the United States calvary the
swiftest race they ever had in their lives.
The pace was' so hoi and fast that a
dozen of tlio- troopers 'were dismounted
by the breaking of saddle-girths and
ciher-"nii. c "iftj)S;. and many others lost
their ' h&ts' and other -portions of their
v/earing apparel. The day was" intensely
hot and the cloud of dust left behind by
Xhe on-rushing calvacade,' headed by the
President, obscured ' the vision of the
thousands of iiccpte trying to follow in i
carriages and on Hoot.
Pur all of his horseback rides the Pres
ident attires himself *n suitable costume,
tnd Is perhaps three or four hours in the j
saddle. Mrs. Roosevelt often joins him. |
Their custom is t6 leave the" White House I
-jv a carriage anil lake their horfces in the
Suburbs- of the city; - '■ ' : -
■'Wh'en ' the ' President first came to
Washington he went I walking ': frequently,
sut it \vas tiresome. . to him to be
.'cllovred : everywhere by secret service
snen, : , who feared that soms one
iv'culd attempt to' do him harm,
50 by his horseback rides he is
3ble to le.-ive the secret service men be
n:nfl.: Very few', of. them would be able
to keep up .with Mm.' if they wanted to.
One of the President's escorts on these
"irips. • however, is . a cavalryman who
»res for his. horses in the White House
jlabtes, and who . always sees that the
•?esf horses. arc put QUt a£ the disposal of
tlje." President.^ ,/"■
.._With the reassembling, of Congress, the
President's horse will "get a long rest, and
he will get two months of hard work in

The Dispatch prints herewith a diagram showing a page of the constitution of 1901-02. as it came from the convention
and was referred to c.ie Committee on Revision, and the changes made' in tnat page by ' the Revision Committee. : and there
were about 155 such pages. Some of. thepages" passed upon by the Revision Committee are not so; much .changed ..; and
marked, but others were so much ena r.ged -.' that they, had to be. entirely rewritten. The page portrayed is, therefore, a
fair specimen of tne whole document. - .' . . • . J
:Jn the illustration the. passages marked out' or blurred are either entirely eliminated by the committee or superseded
by the language written. in the margin. , . -
The specimen page, showing the work. that had to'be done on the Constitution is of especial interest at this time as a
guide to the General Assembly and al-nost. unerringly shows the necessity for the appointment of such a committee by
the General Assembly before it has entirely concluded the work of code revision. While the* code is not so Important
as the Constitution, for the reason- that it can be far more readily and easny amended. It is yet of so much importance
that it ww probably be necessary to '..aye a final revision before the adoption of the finished work. Such a joint committee
will; --in air likelihood, have to l>e appointed.: . ■
* The page shown in the illustration is from the corporation article, the printed page showing the section as/it came
from the committee and the entire page showing how it looked after the committee had clone its work. The pa go as it
would read correctly is printed in the constitution, as finally published.

The work, to'be done by these gentlemen
is that authorized; by ■ the. act recently
passed, appropriating $aCO to facilitate

It is, in a sense,. a revision, and is no
small task, and one well worth the sum
to'be' expended. In fact, the State ..will
save /money, under the arrangement , af

to some such commission by contract,; it
would have to be dono^by the two house?-,
or. by the committees thereof, and both
bodies would have to sit while it was
being, done.
Mr. Pollard and Mr. Brenaman will

a wide. margin for amendments, and cut

substituting in lieu thereof those passed
