thus bring tho secretary of war Into tho

not bo president ho certainly has tho
filoflRitro of occupying tho most liomi

nro tho olllcea of tho adjutant general,
tho inspector general, quartermaster gen

clneers, chief of ordnance, judgo ndvo
ato general and chief signal olllccr. It
'la somewhat rcmnrknblo that S.OOOclerka
aro required to tako caroof tho fiscal and
other routino affairs of an army or a llttlo
auoro than 20,000 otllcers and men. Tho
'war department is really tho easiest of
all tho departments to manage. In times
of peaco it Is practically nblo to run itself.
iFow cha:!"itt aro utndo in the ttatf on

Ja so essentially military and runs 60
llargclv on precedent that but few mat
ters of great Importance, or perplexity
reach tho desk of tho secretary.
Tlio desk of tho attorney general, next
in lino according to tjio law of 1880,
Btanda In tho middlcof a, very largo room
which looks rather moro llko a parlor
than an olllce. It Is like-an art gallery,
too, for on Its wnlla aro hung thirty-llvo
or forty portraits of former attomeysgen
end, pictures which cost tho govern
Client from 100 to $1,050 each. Con
rplcuous among them nro Hevcrdy Jolin
6on, Caleb Cushlug, U. M. Stanton, V.
M. Bvarts and Hoger 11. Taney. Tho
attomey general Is simply Undo Sam's
,legal adviser nnd prosecuting attorney.
Ho has suporvislon of UnUed States at
torneys utul mnrshnls throughout tho
country, nnd is ex-olllcio n member of
tho cabinet. Tho local fctaff or tho attor

of but fifty pei-bons all told, half of them

queer that the country U full of lawyers
eager to rUo up their prlvato practico,
with ivr'i;;. y.-.'O.OCO or sWO.UOJ n year,
in order to couu down here and work:

"Well.'WId ho. "when I first camo licro
I wan most pushed to find means of es

Inwycrs wero never noted Tor their back

175 places o had about 0,000 applicants.
Mnyho lis was not no largo a number,
hut at tho time I thought it was 1)0,000.
Each applicant sent nliout fifty letters
nnd nil tho way from half n dozen to
two score of men to talk It over with mo.
For ono olllco thero wero 210 applicants.
I nm Borry for my successor."
Tho secretary of tho navy works in a
beautiful room, from whoso windows
ono may look out upon tho Whlto Uouso
consorvntory nnd tho window at which
tho president's wlfo sits with her book
or embroidery. Secretary Whitney hns
hnd moro work to do hero than any
secretary hIiico tlio closo of tho war, nnd
his ouccessor will find Ida task anything
but ensy. Undo Sam Is now engaged In
building a navy, and with his usual im
petuosity ho It doing it with a rush. Mrs.
Whitney onco told mo her husband,
of whom she is Justly very proud, hnd
worked harder as secretary or tho navy
than ho over did before. "Ho took hold
of tho department," said hIio, "na ho
Used to tako hold of dilllcult law cases,
aud studied night nnd dny till ho hnd
mustered it. Mr. Whitney likes hnrd
work. When ho wns In tho city nttor
noy's ofllco lu Now York thov used to
leave nil tho dilllcult enses to him. nnd
ho rather liked It." Secretary Whltnoy
knows how to hnudlu men ns well ns
ships. Indeed, tho duties of his olllco
largely consist of hnndllng men, thero
being naval bureaus, in charge of naval
olllcers, to tako euro of tho ships and
their belongings. At 10 o'clock every
morning tho secretary takes up position
In his outer olllco. All his callers nro
admitted to the room, where ho can bco
inein ami tnoyenn boo him. Ho stands
by a high desk, and receives Ids
visitors ono nfter another. Tho calltfr
may Hit, but tho secretary stands.
Under such conditions tho nvcrago
visitor states his business in tho
fewest posslblo words mid gets away
as soon as ho can. It Is a common say
ing in Washington that Mr. Whitney
can dlsposo of a greater number or
callers In nn hour than any other official,
and this is tho manner in which ho docs
it a good hint for his successor. After
two hours nt tho outer desk tho i,ecro
tnry retires to his olllco proper, whero
ho works stendlly till S or In tho even
ing. Ho hns been ono of tho most suc
cessful of nil or tho present cabinet min
isters, and Ida administration lias tho
credit or giving tho American nnvy Its
Btnrt on tho road to greatness.
Thero is nothing sumptuous in tho
ofllccs or tho postmaster general and sec
retary of tho Interior, except tho marblo
bathroom in connection with tho latter.
Tho postmaster general works In a plain
room, which has rather old fashioned
furniture. In this room and about tho
dovoted head of Mr. Dickinson's succes
Eor will bo Eoen the worst crush of tho
season after March !. Hero tho nlaco

Mr. Vilas estimates tliut ho lost ten
years oi nis uio uurmg uie urst bix
months of tho year 1885, when ho sat nt
his desk nnd fought oIT tho mob, besides
nmking fifteen or twenty thousand ono
rules, who havo not yet forgiven him.
In number of persons employed, nnd in
direct contact with tho ieopfc, tho post

departments. A postmaster general need
not bo a lawyer, but a secretary of tho
Interior should havo had law training.
This great department controls tho patent
ofllco, tho pension ofllco, public lands
and mines, tho Indians, education, rail
roads, public surveys, tho federal cen
sus, etc. Secretary Vilas' room is as
plain as Dickinson's, but his desk la kept
always In thp ixrfectlon of orderliness.
Both Vilas and Dickinson wero lawyers
of renown before taking public ofllco.
