Memory-How i Biitcrthrr's Question
Was Answered Note of Intrrr.l.
Wabihnoton, April 11. Sonntor Tel
ler's sonslblo proK)altlon to nlollRh tho
secret sessions of tho scnato Is likely to
carry when that body ngnln convenes,
Tho secret session Is n farce nntl n mil
snnco. It Is n farco becnuso it Is not bo
crot, after all, nnd it Is n miisatico bo
catuo It inflicts upon senators tho ne
cessity of lying nnd upon nowspnper men
tho need of asking great btatcamen to
violato their oaths of olTlco. Everybody
knows tlmt tho nowspapcrs print moro
or less correctly tho proceedings of theso
so called secret oxecutivo sessions, and
tho Information on which their reports
aro based must coino front tho senntors
themselves, sinco thoy aro tho only per
sons present. As n rulo overy nowspn
per man has two or three senators on
whom ho depends for information.
In most cases theso sonators aro from
thoBtato in which tho journal is printed
that tho correspondent represents, but
not always. Tho correspondent keeps
two or thrco senators "on his string," so
that if ono cannot bo found in good tltno
thoro remains nt least ono moro to fall
back upon. Correspondents do ngood
deal of "trading" In this matter of secret
sessions, and find It n great help. For
instnnco, tho Doston correspondent
worms from tho Massachusetts senators
all ho can and gives tho siibstanco there
of to his friends, correspondents from
Philadelphia nnd Chicago. Theso hnvo
mcamvhllo oxtrnotcd as much possiblo
from tho Pennsylvania nnd Illinois sen
ators, and when it is nil put together
each correspondent finds ho has a prottv
full nnd correct account of tho nroccoJ
It must not bo supposed that senators
willingly talk of secret sessions. As a
rulo they aro exceedingly reluctant to
speak, but many of them aro undor such
obligations to correspondents nnd tho
papers thoy represent, nnd hnvo such n
full realisation of tho necessities of tho
caso from a journalistic standpoint, that
thoy permit themselves to bo coaxed into
giving up n few fragmentary words. A
vust majority of tho senators try to still
their consciences with tho conceit that
in refusing to do much moro than give
assent or dissent to tho interrogatives of
tho correspondent thoy nro preserving
their oaths inviolate) but thcro aro a few
sonators who frankly Bay tho secret ses
sion is a humbug, nnd tell all thoy know
without guiso or guile. Lucky tho cor
respondent who has ono of theso sena
tors "on his string."
Ono of tho remarkablo phases of publia
iifo in Wasldngton in tho closo relation
ship and perfect confldenco existing be
tween statesmen and nowspnper corre
spondents. Tho successful correspond
ents at Washington are men of character
and honor. If thoy aro not men who
can bo safely trusted with secrets thoy
are out of placo in Washington. Ono of
the chief duties of a capital newspaper
writer is to discriminate as to what may
bo properly printed. In his freo and
friendly relations with publio men he
becomes possessed of information which
ho could not glvo to tho publio without
working injustico to his friends; and
though not bound by cither tho expressed
or implied obligations of tho confi
dential communication ho finds it
necessary to bo on tho alert, lest ho
at ono tltno or another fall to
exercise tho nlco discrimination which
judge so infallibly between tho' publio
and tho private It happens very fre
quently that newspaper men becomo
possessors of secrets which would ruin
the careers of publio men if published in
full, but no lino of which over1 finds its
way into print. Discretion and honor
are so well understood here as newspa
per characteristics that senators, repre
sentatives and cabinet officers place moro
confidence in correspondents than in
their own colleagues. Neatly illustra
tive of this was a little corridor incident
which occurred in tho Arlington hotel
when uen. Harrison was quartered there,
just beforo inauguration. An Indiana
friend of Gen. Harrison's was giving
two nowspaper men a bit of Informa
tion, "absolutely confidential, not to bo
mblished." Ho had not proceeded far
nlils relation of thostato secret when
ho paused and whispered:
"Step over this way a little. I'm
afraid Senator is overhearing us."
As an instance of tho confidence placed
in newspaper correspondents by publio
men an odd story may be fold, though
tho namo of tho chipf actor must of
course bo omlttlf Two or three months
beforo tho Republican national conven
tion last year a Now York correspondent
called on acorfaln senator, who had not
been genet vlly considered a candidate
for tho prctjdency, and was astonished
to hear tho senator suyt
"I bcliovtKt tan bo nominated for tho
presidency & tho Chicago convention. I
havo about iS&tta up my mind to bo a
candidate Inroad earnest. Now, I will
tell you of a)hiloplan I havo In mind.
Til charter aNmecbil train from AVaali
Ington to Chicago! invito all tho nows
paper rcpresentatlvb-vcgialong as my
guests. Invitations for this trip will bo
sent out about thrco weeks beforo the
convention, and I count that, inasmuch
as nowspaper men aro only human liko
tho rest of us, this little strolto of mine
will result hi having me r. good deal
boomed for tho nomination in all tho
leading papers of tho country,"
Tho newspaper man listened to this
novel proposition with no little amaw
meat, but finally plucked up courage
enough to rcplyt ,,
"Senator, since your conddlng such
a matter to mo implies that you want my
opinion of It, I will give you that very
frankly. It would, never do in tho
world. You mean well, of course, but
ifttad of briaging yu friesda and
strength it would only subject you 'to
ridicule. In the ftnt place, one or other
of tho railroads sends out a special train
to carry tho correspondents freo of
charge. Many of tho correspondents ro
f uso to ncccpt oven this favor, News
papers nnd nowspaper men nro much
moro independent about such thlngsthan
thoy used to Ik. If you hlro n special
train, senator, you will not hnvo enough
passengers to mako up a good whist
party. If 1 wcro you, I should dismiss
tho idea from my mind nt once"
Tho senator took tho nowspacr man's
ndvlco. Hu hired no special train, nnd
his namo was not mentioned in tho Chi
Secretary Hl.ilno is a much richer man
than ho Is generally credited with being.
Ho is moro than n millionaire. Probably
tho luckiest Investment Mr. Dlnlno over
mado was In tho Llttlo Hopo mino nt
Lcadvlllo, Colo,, which linn, nlono mado
tho secretary rich. That initio has paid
fl, 500,000 dividends In tho last fivo years,
of which largo sum Mr. Blaino's slinro
has been about onosoventh. "That mino
appears (o !k misnamed," said a friend
to htm, recently; "it should bo called
Great Hopo Instead of Llttlo Hojo."
"Yes," replied tho secretary, "Great
Hopo would Ihj better. I havo already
got from that mino $1,800 for overy ono
InvesU'd, and havo tho stock left." Mr,
Dlalno is nlso n largo stockholder in tho
Pridoof Erin mino nt Lend ville, which Is
paying dividends of $23,000 a month.
Secretary lllnlno's wondorful memory
for names and fncos is nlmost dally de
monstrated by aotual test A few days
ago ox-CongrcNsmnn Thomas, of Illinois,
took a cousin of his to call nt tho stato
department. "Dlnlno won't rcmemlor
mo," said tho cousin, who is n Chicagoan
named Saunders. "I never met him but
onco, nnd that was only for a couplo of
minutes, hero In his ofilco, when ho was
secretary of state under Gnrflold. It
would bo simply miraculous if ho wefo
to romombcr my faco, lot nlono my
name, nt this Into day," Tho ox-congressman
had so much confldenco In
Blaino's memory that ho wagered his
cousin a Ikjx of cigars tho secretary
would either call him by namo or re
member his faco and tell where and un
der whnt circumstances they had last
mot. When tho pair entered tho room
of tho secretary of stato Mr. Dlalno
stopped forward to givo greeting to
Thomas. This dono, ho turned to tho
cousin, held Saunders' hand ten or fif
teen seconds, looking him mcanwhllo in
tho oyc, and finally Baying; "I am glnd
to boo you, Mr. Saunders. Eight years
havo passed slnco wo met in this very
room." And thus Thomas won tho
Among tho tunny ofilco seekers still
remaining in WmJiington is otio whoso
caso possesses moro than ordinary Inter
est. Mrs. Col. Young, widow of ono of
North Carolina's most prominent Repub
licans, wants tho postofflco lb. her town,
and could got If If her congressman
would indorso her papers. Tills tho con
gressman refuses to do. "And just to
think," says Mrs. Young, "that my hus
band and I onco owned this congress
man. Mr. Cheatham was onco our slave.
His mlddlo namo Is Plummcr, and that
is what wo used to call him. I can re
member tlio llttlo mulatto boy so welL
Dozens of times I said to my husband;
'Don't keep llttlo Plummcr out thcro in
tho cold holding tho horso. Tio tho horso
and let tlio boy como in to tho flro.' I
was very kind to tho llttlo fellow, and ho
used to think everything of us. but now
that our Blavo has becomo our congress
man ho doesn't seem to wish to bo kind
to mo. Ho has oven proposed that I
agreo to tako if minor clerkship hero in
ono of tho departments, as ho has de
cided to put ono of hia colored constitu
ents in tho po8toffice, and ho wants to get
mo out of tho way."
Writing of newspaper men reminds
mo of an odd duty which often falls to
thorn In tho regular run of business. If tho
subscribers of metropolitan daily news
papers know tho troublo they wcro put
Ing pcoplo to with their never ceasing
inquiries about naturalization laws, land
laws, etc, perhaps they would bo moro
modest in their requests. Let us follow
one of these inquiries from start to
finish. It was received through the
malls in tho office of a Chicago news
paper. Tho managing editor assigned it
to ono of his assistants. This painstaking
and patient gentleman Bpcnt thrco hours
in tho ofilco library trying to find out tho
information asked for, but without suc
cess. Ho reported hU fulluro to the
managing editor, and that personage
merely exclaimed; "Wire tho Washing
ton ofilco to look It up."
In ten minutes tho Washington corre
spondent had started his young man for
tho department of justlco with tho tele
graphed inquiry between his fingers. At
tho department ho was told: "Wo never
answer questions. In fact, It is against
tho law for us to givo opinions that aro
not asked for by tho president or mem
bers of his cabinet. Besides, If It wcro
to becomo known that wo wcro answer
ing legnl questions to everybody, it is
my belief that insldo of a month wo'd
bo getting 60,000 letters of that sort a
day. I can't answer your question, but
I will show you where you can find tho
information you seek." And after a fow
moments' inspection of a big book the
assistant correspondent was on his way
to Ills ofilco with tho solution of the
problom in his pocket. In a fow min
utes tho answer was speeding over tho
wires Chlcagoward, and next morning
"Old Subscriber" picked up1 his paper,
read with much satisfaction tho shgrt
but clear and comprehcnslvo response to
his query, and said to himself: ''It
doesn't seem to boa bit of troublo for
theso newspaper fellows to answer ques
tions. Thoy know everything."
