call a noble brow. The eyes are un
flinching but always smiling. In
general appearanco Tumulty looks
something like a fighting parson.
You can see just by looking at him
that ho has a big heart, but he has a
way about him of a man who will
stand a lot of jollying but no trifling,
and who is not afraid to uso his fists
Not Afraid of Anybody
He is not afraid of any one, and
that includes the president of the
United States. The conversation had
drifted to the kind of secretaries that
President Taft had been burdened
with and Tumulty said:
"A secretary who is mealy
mouthed, who is afraid to speak his
mind and say what he thinks is right,
will hamper any executive will in
the end do more downright harm
How much harm can bo done by
an incompetent or indiscreet secre
tary is fully realized by Tumulty.
He has made a careful study of the
various causes which contributed to
the success or failure of every ad
ministration since Lincoln. He
knows to what an extent the wreck
of Mr. Taft's administration was due
to the light in which the ex-president
was shown by his own spokes
men. Mr. Taft was singularly un
lucky in his choice of secretaries.
, "When he was appointed secretary
to the governor everybody predicted
that one so young and inexperienced
would fail ignominiously. That was
two years ago and .people did not
know Tumulty. Now the same men
are saying that he will make a tre
mendous success of his new job. In
any case he has the well wishes even
of his political enomies.
I asked Tumulty what he read and
what his favorite recreation was.
Ho told me that he read politics,
mostly, and that his favorite recrea
tion was politics. Just then Mrs.
Tumulty came In and said that she
thought her husband worked, ato,
played and read politics to the ex
clusion of everything else, and he
smiled and went over and held up
one of the children for her to kiss.
Then ho admitted that, his family
and his work aside, he was fonder
of the theatre than of anything else.
He likes music, but it must be good
music. lie likes a good, clean, whole
some play; there may be as much
comedy about it as the author
chooses, but it must be free from all
vulgarity. He is the kind of play
goer who loves the theatre and finds
mighty few shows that he really ap
To complete the picture, Tumulty
is as simple in his dress as he is
democratic in manner. He wears a
plain brown suit of clothes, a com
fortable turn-down collar and a black
tie. He wears no jewelry except a
wedding ring and is as unostenta
tious as it is possible to bo. Ho is
not fond of society, and will prob
ably spend more time in Washington
at the National Press club than he
will in the drawing-rooms of the so
cially elect. In this ho will differ
from his predecessors, who have al
ways attached much importance to
the social side of their official life.
There are three classes into which
men who have served as secretaries
to the presidents may bo divided.
Some were merely private secretar
ies, like Carpenter; others were pub
lic secretaries, like Hilles; a few
have been real assistant president,
like Dan Lamont. Joseph P. Tu
