WHITE HOUSE WATCH DOGS HOW PRESIDENT CLEVELAND AND HIS F»M.LY ARE GUARDED. Till. BOLTS AND BAHS SECVKE. How the Policemen Etand on Guard Night and Day at the Doors in the Ha-^emnnt and About the Grounds — How Cleveland Repelled an Assault at Albany. HE White house *nas never been more carefully guarded than it is today. Tramps are swarm ing into Washington from all parts of the United States, and a report was received here the other day that 1,500 were on their way from the South to the capital. The president's mail includes all sorts of cranky letters, and A~m-%^»«mc\ lilfc the financial distress which prevails over the United States has developed a discontented army, many of the soldiers of which think that President Cleve laud can redress their grievances. The air seems to breed cranks,and the demon of destruction is abroad in the land. A week or so ago Washington's "Jack the Ripper" got into the White house and amused himself by carving up Ihe fur niture. He cut the curtains in the green room and ran his knife throuch the ele gant coverings of the solas and chairs. SSince then the private rooms of the W liite house have not been shown to visitor?, ;ind the vigilance of the guards has been increased. The Hawaiian matter, with the severe editorial criti cisms oT the president upon it from many sources, has not helped his posi tion In Hit,* eyes of the cranks, and the possibility of a Guiteau or a Prender gast hangs like a shadow over the ex ecutive mansion. THE WHITE HOUSE DEFENSE. I have devoted some time this week to finding tut just what safeguards are placed around the president. He is al most a.s well watched as any monarch of Europe. Policeman are stationed about the White house grounds, and the / "*~\ /-S CLKVELAKS ASSAULTED. White house itself as it is now arranged is almost crank proof. It is, you know, surrounded by acres of green grass and trees. It is fully 300 feet back from the street, and the grounds in the rear and at the sides cover acres. The trees are, large, and there is no dense shrubbery anywhere. The burglar who would attempt to pass through it, cither in davor night, could be easily seen, and it has practically no hiding places. An iron fence about five feet high runs around the grounds. This fence is set firmly in a sandstone basement, and the bars which compose it are tipped with sharp points, so that it would be impossible to climb over them without injury, and each bar is about an inch in diameter. They are so closely placed together that it would require Ibe breaking of two or three of them In order for a man's body to be gotten through the fence, and the only access to the grounds is by the gates. There are eight gates to the park of the executive mansion, two on the side next the treasury and two fac ing tlie state department. There are also four gates at the front facing Pennsylvania avenue. The gates at the sides are for foot passengers only, and they are locked every evening with great iron chains and padlocks. The trout gates are larger. Two of them are fur carriages and two for foot pas senge:s. They are of the strongest of wrought iron, and they are locked every night in the same way as the Kates at the side. THE POLICE OX QUABD. The police of the city are constantly on guard on the streets outside of the grounds. They patrol Pennsylvania avenue in front of the White house, and they move up and down between it and the treasury and the state department. They also keep their eyes on the white lot. which extends beinnd the White House nark, and any one paying special attention to the building "at night is carefully watched. In addition to this force there is the White house police proper, and It will sur prise some to know that it re quires the service ot thirteen policemen to guard the grounds and the house it.selt. This is in addition to the messengers and servants of the execu tive mansion, and these policemen have their regular watches and are on guard night and day. During the day the gates are open and certain parts of the grounds are practically free to visitors, but no one enn move through them aud be for a. moment out of sight of one of these policemen, aud this corps of police, though it comes from the city, is under the charge of Private Secretary Thurber. or more immediately of Capt. Decker, who may be called the chief watch dog of President Cleveland. Within the past few years a wire fence has been built around a part of .the ground nearest the White house. Com ing into the great half moon drive through the gate above the treasury you walk up a flagstone sidewalk until you get near the mansion, and you reach this wire fence at about twenty feet from the White house itself. Running parallel with the White house from the coiner to the front steps this fence is of great bars of iron about two inches thick, tipped with gilded arrow heads and reaching as high as your chest. There is au area way between the wall upon which the fence is built and the White house it self, and looking dowu this at the corner you see one of the doors which lead into the basement. This door is guarded by the policeman at the back of the house, and also by the guard who always stands in the long central corri dor of the basement. The gate leading from the drive down to this door is kept lacked, and tne wire fence which ex tends from this gate down to the treas ury entrance begins again at the back of the White house and shuts off this 6ide yard and this door from visitors. It runs around to the back of the White house to the back steps, and on the other side of these steps shuts off visit ors from access to the house. Tilt: REAR GI'ARD. A policeman stands at the back steps night and day, and the basement and the first floor entrances are guarded by him. His position gives him a view of the grounds in rear of tbe mansion, and he is one of the most important guards of the force. Should he go to sleep or be removed toone of the main entrances of the White house, supposing the crank could pass the guards on the out side, it would be by the back steps and the blue room, which are less carefully guarded than the basement. Even in this case, however, the burglar would h; ye to pick the locks of the doors leaning into the. blue room, and h ■ would then have to pa>s through a number of other doors before he could get at the president's valuables or his person. CAPT. DECKER AND THE CKAXK. It was in this way that a son of a United States senator broke into the Wlii'-' house not long ago. He got in through the window of the red room, but it was found that he was drunk rather than crazy, and the matter was hushed up. A red-headed crank from Idaho haunted the grounds back of the White house for some days about the time of the close of the last session of congress. He was crazy on the subject of the silver bill, and protiably medi tated some injury to the president. His case was investigated by t lie DOiice, and it was found that he had written threat ening letters to the president, lie es caped, however, before his true charac ter was known. INSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE. The police inside the White house are tr-e most important of the president's watch dogs. Supposing the crank to have passed the policeman on the. grounds, ho enters the White house by the front door. This has a massive lock, and it is never left standing open. It admits you to the great vestibule of the executive mansion, which is, you know, twice as big as the average city parlor, and which is shut off from the rest of the house by walls at the ends and by a great glass screen at the back. This vestibule always contains from three to five guards. Some of them are the messen gers ot the White house and others are policemeu in uniform. It is only with in the last few months that police uniforms have been used in the White house. Tiiese policemen are heavy-set fellows. They are the pick of the force, and they are men who have good de tective faculties, as well as strong muscles and courageous hearts. They can usually detect a crank at a glance, and every visitor who comes into the White house has to pass under their eye ;. One of them usually sits or stands at the right of the door as you come in, and -if you pass the door keeper you are motioned to the left- Going across the vestibule, you find here the door that leads you to the hall and to the east room. Here there is another policeman on guard, and if you have no business witli the presi dent this man does not permit you to mount the stairs. You are permitted to go into the east room and look about, but no further. The action of the van dal who cut the green room curtains and sofas will probably prevent the private rooni9 of the White house being open to the public for some time to come. This man recalls a case which hap pened during the days of President Lincoln. A woman sightseer in her anxiety to carry away a relic of the White house had taken a pair of scissors and snipped a piece out of the lace curtain. She was caught in the act and was taken up to President Lincoln, lie gave her a good sermon, but let her go. The man who cut the green room furniture seems to have been actuated by i he desire to destroy, rather than to have been a relic hunter. WHERE THE PRESIDENT WORKS. Grover Cleveland does all of his work above stairs. It is on the second floor of the executive mansion that the presi dent and his family live, and this is the HE STOOD TOO NEAR THE SSGN. I—Hello1 — Hello I There comes a pretty girl. I'l cross the street — — -_ 1 3— Now to take me hat off — ah I — and make an impression. "THIB PATNY TAVZ fiATLt GLOBE: " SUNDAY MOBNING, DECEMBER 10, i^—TWfi&FY' PaSSS part of the White bouse which is most carefully watched. The livine rooms of the family are at the west end of this floor. The end nearest the treasury is devoted to offices, and it is always tilled with clsrks and messengers. This is the only part that is accessible to people who have public business. These men after they have passed the guards down stairs are allowed to go up tie staircase between tne east room and tl c vestibule. At the top or this there is a guard in citizen's clothes, and past ing across a hall you come into another corridor, in the rooms of which at the back are the offices of the president end Mr. Thurbcr, and also the big parlor in which the cabinet meets. As you step into this corridor you see seated at a desk one of the most trusted servants and best watchman any ruler has ever known. This is Sergeant Loeffler, the special messenger of the president. He is a wiry, sharp-eyed man, with a gray mustache. No one knows how old hu is, but his muscles are iron. He was fight ing the Indians long before the war began, and for the past twenty years he has been, oue of the confidential serv ants of the White house. It is lie who takes in the cards that reach the presi dent. He kuows all the prominent men of the country, and he sometimes de tects bad characters who have passed the men below. In this same corridor you find a couple of colored guards, among them Arthur, who has been the messenger of Ihe private secretary of the president for years, and if you are an unknown man your card will be given by Sereeant Loeffler to Arthur, and you will have to go in and have an interview with Private Secretary Thur ber before you can pierce the divinity which hedges your Amer ican king. Mr. Thurber has naturally a great reverence for the president. He appreciates the dangers which surround him, ami one must have indeed gootl credentials and an honest face to be ad mitted by him into President Cleve land's office. Just across the hall are the offices of another corps of clerks, including Col. William H. Crook, wiio has been twenty-eight years connected with the executive mausion. and who was one of President Lincoln's special body guards when he made his trip to Richmond. All of tlie employes of the White house are connected with the president and me private secretary by electric bells, and the whole army could be called into the president's room by the pressure ot a button. NIGHT IN THE WHITE HOUSE. 1 have shown you that it would be almost impossible for any one to break into the White iiouse at night. 1 want to tell you how easily the 'nan would be caught if he got in. He would, in the hist place, have to pass the men on the city police force, climb over the fence I I $\ \\ I Ml - | I Yj\i» SERGEANT I.OEFFLER. and get to the White house itself. He would have to do this under ablaze ot lights, tor electricity and gas unite to turn night into day, and the lamps in front of the mansion always burn. Suppose he got to the front door and pictted the lock, he would find himself, on en tering the vestibule, in the hands of the three policemen who are always on guard there after dark. He could in no way break into the front of the mansion except through this door or the windows at its sides. If he at tempted to enter the basement door facing the treasury, he would be cap tured by the policeman stationed there, and if he eluded him, upon getting into the basement, he would find himself in a wide hall lighted by electricity and patrolled by a stalwart officer armed to the teeth. It he could possibly pass him he might get to the second floor of " ©KQWM g. go \| jjHjL 2 — and stand on Brown's pavement — ah ! the house by the stairway which comes out into the private cor ridor of the mansion near the conserva tory, and thence he could slip up the private stairs to the second floor and be hi the living rooms and sleeping rooms ''»r the president. To do this, however, he would h.ive to break locks, and the slightest noise would Ltd heard by the officers in the vestibule, so that you see hu would have an almost impossible task. In case he got to the president's bedroom, a touch of the button by Mr. Cleveland would set the electric bell on the lawer floor to ringing, and the po licemen and the servants would come rushing in at the sound. A ring at the telephone of the office near by would call the whole police, force of the city to the White house in a few minutes, aurt a connection could be made with the armed forces of the navy yard, so that a force of soldiers would surround the mansion and prevent any possible escape. DANGEHS OUTSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE. ] The chief danger lies outside of the , White house. So far no attempt has ' ever been made to atlack a president in" the executive mansion. Hie risks are too creat. The attacks upon Lincoln. Jackson ana Garlield were all made when they were away from the house, , and the scheme to abduct Lincoln in.r r eluded the capturing of him while he was on his way to the soldiers' home!, The guards which are now placed ' about a president when he is away; from office are better than they have ever been before, and the safety of the president is carefully watched when he is at his country home. Eight mounted policemen patrol the roads of this part of the Washiugton suburbs, and you can hardly go into the country now about "here without meeting a po liceman on horseback. The police serv ice of the capital has, lnfact,*never been bo efficient as it is today, and the presi dent is seldom away from the eyes of the police. When he goes to church there is an ofiicer on ihe street outside, and his afternoon rides seldom go out siue the range of the mounted police. TUE PKKSn>ENT A IiKAVK MAW. 1 am told that the president objects to the clofe watch which is kept upon him. He is a brave man, and he does not like it. lie was, you know, attacked by s crank when he was governor of New York, just before he was elected presi dent. He was on his way to the capitol in Albany, when a man sprang out from the corner of the street and tried to strike him in the face. President Cleveland at first acted merely on the defensive, but toward the last of the trouble he gave the man a fairly good pounding. While he was making the assault a friend of Mr. Cleveland's came up and seized the man. and Mr. Cleve land thereupon went on to the gov ernor's office. The man was not satis fied with some action of Cleveland in regard to a pardon, and the trial which ensued showed that lie was crazy. There is a story here that President Cleveland was attacked during the cam paign by a crank in Mew York. I can not vouch for its truth, but it is said that about three weeks before the elec tion a maij called at Mr. Cleveland's house on West Fifty-fourth street iv New York and asked to see him. He was shown into the parlor, and a moment later Mr. Cleveland entered. As he did so the man raised a revolver ana snapped it at him. The cap missed lire, and Mr. Cleveland, throwing his arms around the man, pressed him against the wall and called for Iwlp. A few minutes later he was iv the hands of the police, and shortly after this he found a place in an insane asylum. Through Dr. Eryant and Supt. liyrnes the matter was kept out of the papers, and today no one but the president and his most intimate friends know the exact facts of the case. FIIAXK G. CARPEXTKB. The Arrested Snap Shot. "Stranger," said the young man with the white hair and the dyed mustache to the photographer, "I am here to git my picture took, and I'll tell you how it is.

Sharply Reluiked by an Intelli gent Woman. To the Editor of ths Glor>e. 1 am somewhat bewildered and great ly astonished over an editorial in last Sunday's Pioneer Press— "Woman's Suffrage in Colorado." Astonished that in these enlightened days any news paper man would b9 so blind to the signs of the times as the writer of that article seems to be. . T \Vhen reading the silly screed strung on a bent wire of thought there rose up vividly before my mina's eye a scene afcd a conversation which took place in a private parlor at the St. Nichdlas hotel in New York city in the sum nfer of 18f>0— a long and earnest talk over the political situation and the presidential campaign then in progress, and the present as well as fut ure status of the negro race. Finally Stephen A. Douglas arose from his* cliair, and, walking the length of the room, turned and said to my father, in his earnest, forcible manner: "1 tell you, Mr. S ,it Is impossible; the 'negro' belongs to an inferior race, he* cannot understand or appreciate freedom; as a race they have no intel lectual powers or capacity for self-gov ernment. They never will be free.' l '• You are wrong, senator, " was my father's reply, '• '1 shall live not only to see them a free people, but citi zens of these United States." My father's words were prophetic. He did live to see them fre°, and also citizens of the United States. All the actors in that social-political discussion but myself have lows been resting in the silent cities of the dead. This editorial brought back to me a long-forgotten incident of my happy young girlhood. What was then tliouglu and said about the negro race is now being written and said about women, the female race. Tlie negro race lias demonstrated its powers of inteilectu.il strength, its ca pacity for self-government, and ability to enjoy, as well as appreciate personal freedom. The race has had a hard road to travel, biu it has pressed steadily on ward and upward tliu hill of discourage ment, bigotry and intolerance and has tolerance, as well as respectful treat irent as citizens of the United States, in every state of the Union. If thi- negro race of male slaves has been able to clearly demonstrate and practically prove its fitness to be granted and endowed with all the immu nities and privileges of citizenship, why cnmiot the female race also be conceded to have the same moral intel ligence and mental capacity for self government? If the low grade of Italian immi grants, the veriest scum of all Northern European nations of the male race, have moral intelligence and mental ca pacity enough lo be granted and en dowed with thu franchise, and ac cepted without a protest as citizens of the state, why cannot the native-born American womnn of Revolutionary colonial antecedents, well read, well bred, and thoroughly educated as she necessarily must be, be lookea upon and considered the moral, intellectual equal of the illiterate and vicious foreign element, and to iiave some in telligence, intellectual, moral, mental capacity— enough to enable her also to be 'admitted into the political house hold as a citizen of the United States, endowed with the franchise, and en titled to all the privileges and immuni ties of citizenship? isn'x it "statutes based upon senti ment" which open wide political arms ana uni>ar state doors and locked gates to cordially welcome a"political murder erand fugitive from justice," endow him with the franchise and inducts him into the sacred privacy of the United Mates senate, extend to him without a ques tion as to his qualifications all the privi leges and immunities of citizenship, without any reference to the stipula tions of the federal law of naturaliza tions, section 2165, section 21t>7, section 2170? If our editorial censor in the Pioneer Press-, who is so horrified over the mere idea or' the female ra<«t being considered intelligent enough. or mentally qualified to exercise the rights of citizenship in the state of Colorado, will calmly look at the condition ot" affairs close at home lying across the Republican threshold of his own political lawmaking house hold, he will, I'm afraid, find some sen timental law-making and constitutional tinkering in his own state, enough to wake him up out of his Rip Van Wiu kleian sleep, his dreams on paper re garding woman suffrage in general ; for, if 1 am not very much mistaken. there is a clause in the state constitution which endows any European vagabond or fugitive from justice who has "been In the state of Minnesota four months, in the United States one year, to vote at any election within the state"? "The Pioneer Press disbelieves in woman suffrage for reasons that are fundamental." Undoubtedly because she is a woman, one of the female" race. "Because it does recognize that she differs from man, and that no law or custom or sentiment can transform that difference into ideutlty." ca For centuries it \vas the customj in India to burn widows witli the bodies of their dead husbands. Would the Pio neer continue that custom? Our censorious friend on the Pioneer must have met. associated with and been brought into daily, hourly associa tion with a veiy singular class and grade of the femaleTace to have arrived at this stupendous conclusion of the In eradicable difference of sex which con stitutes a woman's mental inferioritj to the male immigrant— the Italian, the Hungarian, the Polack, for instance— for he goes on to say: "No amourt of progress, and no amplest recogni tion of the equality of the sexes in dignity, and the superiority of women in many of the highest traits of human nature, will ever alter the fact that the physical difference of sex is the sign and basis of a mental difference, a difference meaning not inferiority,butonly unlike-,, ness of function, and 'a difference in their assigned places in social and po litical development.'' The mountain labored (the gigantic editorial brain moved), and 10, there is brought forth a mouse. It is true there is a difference between man and and woman; a difference of physical construction and social assign ment; but tor all that, the female race must also take its place In the ranks of the citizen column, and perform her duty as an important factor in the body politic. If our editorial Pioneer censor will carefully study the text of the federal constitution, he can dismiss all fears of the female race ever displacing the masculine element in the governmental official functions and business places, for he will find that an important docu ment is made out in the masculine gen der only. This renders it impossible for woman to take a man's place, perform a man's work, official or business duties, etc. Let him also hunt up the decision of Federal Judire Hunt, of the court of appeals, in the United States court for the district of New York, in the case of Susan B. Anthony vs. State of New York— an election case. Let him also look up the decision of Attorney General Vanetta, of the state of New Jersey, in the case of Eu riekaC. Jones vs. Hudson County Jail one an United States, the other" a state case; but both take the same position; one that, as the text of the federal law is in the masculine geuder, the word "persons," in tiie fourteenth amendment, only refers to the male race of citizens; the other that, as the laws of the. state of New Jersey are formed and -passed in the masculine gender, they can only t>e considered to refer to the male citizens of the United States. These two decisions remove the bug aboo 1 that troubles and seriously dis turbs the peace of mind of the ed itorial quill belonging to the Pioneer; but women are citizens, endowed with the federal franchise, for all that, and can vote at the federal elections (if bo SPEOIALi. Read our Market Letter to be published in these columns next \ c Inesday, Dec. 13th. /f, v & /-v^ & Jt / 1 0 / «i they choose); were endowed with this citizenshiu, right and privilege by tli c . omission of the pronoun defining the stye in the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth amendments to the fed eral constitution; but, although en dowed with all the rights and privi leges, the immunities of citizenship, still they are debarred from occupying, being appointed to, or holding official positions of any kind under the federal government, by the defining of the sex of the federal official in the exclusive use of the masculine pronouns "him," ••his," "he;" throughout the whole text of the federal law in its original form. The amendments confer the franchise, but no more." The Pioneer is rieht in one thing, there is an ineradicable difference, a physical difference, between the sexes; urian.'s work and woman's work. Woman's work is wifehood, mother hood, domestic, social homemaking, housekeeping; but this cannot shut her out from her citizen right and personal privilege to choose at the ballot box her representative iv congressional or state lawmaKiug chambers, her choice of preference for governor or president, although it does shut her out from pub lic official business life and confines her exclusively within the limits of the femaie, the social domestic world. - A Woman.

It seems that the hollow of the At lantic is not strictly a basin whose depth increases regularly toward the center, the latest investigation showing that it is neither a saucer nor disiilike one, so even is the contour of its bed. It is found that proceeding westward from the Irish coast the oceau deepens very gradually; in fact, for the first 230 j miles the gradient is but six feet to the mile, though in the next twenty miles the fall is more than 2,000 feet, so precip itous being this sudden descent that in many places depths of 1,200 to 1,600 fathoms are encountered in proximity to the hundred-fathom Hue. , With the depth ot 1,800 to 2,000 fath oms the sea bed in this part of the At lantic becomes a slightly undulating plain, whose gradients are so slight as to show but little alteration of depth for some 1,200 miles, the extraordinary flat ness of these submarine prairies there fore, rendering the . familiar idea of a basin rather inappropriate. - ■ . . The greatest depth in the Atlantic claimed to have been found . some 100 miles to the northward of the island of St. Thomas, where soundings of 3,875 fathoms were . obtained.' The seas around Great Britain, instead of form ing part of the Atlantic hollow, as heretofore generally regarded, are now alleged to be rather a part of the plat form banks of the great European con tinent which the ocean ba3 overflowed. There is more Catarrh in this section of the country than all other diseases put together, and until the last few years was supposed to be incurable. For a great many years doctors pro nounced it a local disease, and pre scribed local remedies, and, by con stantly failing to cure with local treat ment, pronounced it incurable. Science has proven catarrh to be a constitutional disease.anrt therefore requires constitu tional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheuev & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only constitutional cure on the market-- It is taken in ternally in doses from 10 drops to a tea spoonful.
