MODErlN COMFORT FOR STATESMEN J AND VISITORS. Syittciu of Improve. I Ventilation Adopted. Theater Chair In the Gallerio For the Comfort of Looker On Old Traditiou AholUhed-Few Change In the House. When congress reassembled, a marked change was noted in tho neuate chain ber. A complete revolution in heating and ventilating has taken place, under tho direction of Dr. Woodbridgo of tho Boston School of Technology. Tho un sightly brass and iron ventilators which scarred the senatorial carpets and caused intermittent chills and fevers to creep up tho rheumatic limbs of senators have been banished, and fresh air comes into tho chamber through perforations in tho supports of tho desks, at u temperature cf about 72 degrees, escaping into the or spaces between tho various in the Now, main aisles desks In tho galleries the greatest transfor mation has occurred. Tho old time, straight bark benches hav been remov ed, and handsomo mahogany framed theater chairs with maroon colored leather backs and seats havo been sub stituted. Each chair is provided with nir chambers and perforations on tho sidn. The uniformity of t ho gallery seats wipes ont tim "class distinction" that hitherto prevailed in favor of tho dip lomatic and executive galleries. For many years pat the upholstering in tho ujjuumauc ami ex cutivo galJrrirs was a iriiKui iuw, wniiij tiio cnicrmt public galleries was a light gray! althonii tho dividing linra r.m tainod, the furnishing of all tho galler ies is inn same ami m harmony will; tho mahogany effect upon the, floor bidow. Under tho uuw ventilating system it Will not Id ea-y to lnovo tho ,0ic at will, as heretofore. Tho ventilating ap paratus is a part cf tho desk, and to wovo tho dk would requiro a general mutilation of the flooring. The effect prevailing in tho chamber is heightened by the substitution of ma hogany doors with frosted glass panels for tho yellow pino frames covered with ft bilious green covering, which opened into the cloakrooms and tho lobbies. The rich green and gold carpet has been replaced upon tho floor of the chamber, forming a harmonious groundwork for the highly polishod mahogany dosks and square backed, If athf r covered chairs. Sergeant-at-arms Bright has succeed ed In demolishing a long cherished tra. dition. The senate now contains chairs of but a single pattern. Previous to last session it was the custom of each senator to consult his Individual preference in electing the style of chair he would oo ?u7. The result was an unsightly mix- turo or mahogany, oaE, walnut, cano bottoms and haircloth chairs scattered about tho chamber, suggesting a job lot auction room rather than tho dignified United states senate. Electricity has replaced tho gas jets in tho ceiling and the galleries in fact, throughout tho scnato wingand the electric lighting will reduco tho temper ature of the building at night at least 10 degrees. Tho modifications and changes wcro accomplished at un outlay of something below $35,000. Asido from tho placing of anewpieco of carpet in front of tho speaker's desk, no material changes havo been made in the furnishing of tho house of represent atives. Tho officers of the house are anxious that provision should bo made at tho coming session for u thorough renovation and the introduction of a new system of ventilation and seating simi lar to that in the senate. Tho house has always been slow to assert its independence in providing for its own comfort. Tho backwardness is duo to the fact that its members stand up for election by tho poople every two years, while- senators have only to run the gantlet of a state legislature once in six years. Tho houso appears posi tively shabby iu comparison with the Bcnate chamber at present. Washing ton Post. I'rinco of Wale, Mioemaktr. Tim ruble brings us ploriou now Hi royal hiehinsa knew n trade!
