The Wiijk mid Means Committee,
that had been silt. ng so long in Wash'
tnglou, has discontinue 1 its so-called
Investigations and Congiess liming
adjourned, we are In tlio midst of the
holiday season. An unusally largo
number of -Senators and Members re
main Jn Washington -tlioo espeeiully
who homes tiro remote fiom the Cap
ital butthese arc cheerod by the visits
of their sons and daughters who are

be In western 11 id sitttli irn s

than in the ci.pltal of IhoU uitcd Stales.
Tto ground is covered with six inches
ofsno.v, but the days are bright and
there has scarcely as yet been any
really cold weather.
The cltieiis of Washington -those
lo make it their homes are Interested
in tho prepaiatior.s for tlio Inaugura
tion of President elect Tuft. Seventy
flv thousands dollars have been al
ready subscribed for lliu expenses of
tho street pageant and the inaugural
ball and it is Interesting to nolo that
this amount Is313,Q('0 greater than the
total subscription for Presidont Roose
velt's last inaugural ion There is no
doubt but that the subscription will bo
considerably Increased for donations
are coming In In bums of 100 or more.
Locally Mr. Taft is u much more
popular man than Presidont Roosevelt.
He Is genial, traclful. imperturbably
goodliuinored and as the professor said
Mr. Uoosovolt "ain't". Thousands of
Wnshingtonians have a grudge against
the President. Ho oxtondod tho work
ing hours in all tho departments from
1 to 1.3o o'clock, causing what was
Imagined to bo intolureblo hardships
to at least twenty-thousands govern
mont employees, Interfering with
their dinner hour and with the sche
dules of local trains, for it must bo
remembered that hundreds of govern
ment clerks live eight and ten and oven
forty miles outside the city, quite. 'a
number of them' coming ovor in tho
morning from Baltimore androturning
In tho evening. Presidont elect Toft
will not have to do what Mr Roose
velt has done, fortunately perhaps for
his local popularity, but it may be
safely assumed that he will not rescind
Inauguration on tlio fourth of March
is expected to surpass in splendor and
iu volume of spectators, street parade,
mid inaugural ball, any similar event
that has been given before. As usiitH
Pennsylvania venue, on the south
side, will be lined with bleachers
who o tho spectator may sit on a
rough pine ho ml at an expense of any
where from llfly cents to a dollar and
a half and watch an almost endless
pioeession, military and civic, with
fifty or more brass, bands interspersed
for live or six hours Tho day is us
ully inclement and frequently ulniit
intolerable. The scats that cost $l.vi
will have awnings; while those f Ic-s
price will be exposed to the frowuliigoi
smiling skios, as the cisc limy be. In
thirty years residence your correspon
dent remembers only one pU-usunt
fourth of March and that was the day
of tho first inauguration of Piesldent
Andrew Carnegie's admission before
the Committee on ways and means
that.uii 1' tcruatiomil combination of
sleel manufacturers existed lias nat
urally excited many peoplo interested
in tlio tariff pioblem and it is said
that steps will be taken to got to tho
bottom of this alleged international
trust. Mr. Carnegie denied that he
knew anything f it personally, but
he did not deny its existence and hud
heard of it from several bom ces Thero
has been talk of summoning J. Pier-
pout Morgan, on the a-suiiiptioii that
if thero'is a big trust anywlieio, he is
in it, or may know something about it.
Moreover, Mr. Morgan had much to do
with the creation of tho steel trust and
it is somowliat natural to suppose that
he is advised as to any International
It is predicted by tlioso who profess
to know that President Roosevelt's
reply to the demand of tho Houso of
Representative for tho information
upon which ho bused the assertion iu
his animal message, that Members of
Congress woro averso to investigation
by secret service men, is prepared and
in the form of a special message. It
is said that the President has com
pleted it after worklne d ly and night
to gtt it off his hands iu order that ho
nilKht enjoy Iho Christmas holidays
with alight heart Tho draft of this
inetugi it is saUl. has boon submitted
to the Cabinet and tho paper was cuie
fully scrutinized by every one of the
President's counsellors. Itissaid that
those who are anticipating n vitriolic
documont will not have their expecta
tions rcallzod. The piper is said to
bo conservative, calm and teniporute.
Congress will scarcely havo assomblcd
in tho Capital beforo this paper will
be received by It and those who havo
seen It, believe that tlio country will
be convinced, as will also Members of
Congress, that tlio President had sutll
dent reason for 1 he words that have
bien so heatedly crltlcize'd and dis
cussed iu his annual iiicb&ngo.
