MAKING WHITE HOUSE NEW
How the IHslorio Mansion is Kept Eight
Up to Date.
AND IT COSTS A PRETTY PENNY

1'UHHCIINluII ,
t'vcry summer during the absence of the
president's family the white house undergoes
an overhauling and general renovation , and
this year there was more to be done In that
line than usual on account of the changes
which are always being made with a .now
administration and the wear and tear which
will necessarily entail as long as the execu
tive mansion Is the mccca for the thousands
of omccscckors.
Fo\V realize the care which the historic
home of our presidents demands , relates the
Washington Post. It Is an old building
U ban stood for almost a century and In
order to prevent the ravages of time great
pains are taken to keep It In a perfect state
of preservation. To do this requires constant
watchfulness , as well as a constant outlay
of money , and although the appropriations
made < by congress for the white hotiso seem
generous , yet they Invariably fall short of
the actual needs of the place. The sum of
$20,000 U annually appropriated for "fur
nishings and repairs of building and salaries
of employes. " Ten thousand dollars of this
Is paid to the employes , and one of the hard
est piobloniH Colonel Hlnghnm has had to
solve this spring has been how to make that
remaining $10,000 pay for all which should
bo done there this year.
As a small example of the expense at
tending the repairs take this Item ; The
locks In many of the doors arc out of order.
They are old-fashioned locks , which were
put In there many years ago and are now
oilt-'of date and out of the market , but
either the same kind of locks must be used
and to do so they will have to be repro
duced from modcls-or else new doors and
new door frames must go In , for to replace
them with modern locks would require un
sightly patching of every door and frame
In which they were Inserted. This Is only a
little Item , but It gives an Idea of the dif
ficulties which attend the renovations when
made.
TO SUIT THR TENANTS.
Evcrv president's family brings Its own
Individuality Into the white house , and
years ace It was a pretty general custom
dUrlng the regime of one administration to
empty the house of the furnlshlnas which
were put there by the former' Inmates and
to refurnish with new. In this way some of
the second-hand stores of Washington came
Into possession of furniture of great historic
Interest and which Is now priceless to the
parties who thus secured It. President Ar
thur had a well known mania for old things ,
and when ho went Into the White House he
overhauled the garret and brought to light
Bomo of the stowed-away pieces of furniture
and brlc-a-hrac. but , being a man , he lacked
a woman's Intuition , and so failed to find
many things which , later , Mrs. Harrison suc
ceeded in unearthing.
It was AUhur who discovered the old
white marble-topped octagon-shaped table.
In Lincoln s time It was one of the ornamen
tal pieces of the red room , but It had fallen
under the ban and was relegated to the attic.
When President Arthur found It ho had It
put In the corridor leading Into 'tho con
servatory and used It to hold his cigars , as
ho and his friends often sat In this corridor
after dinner and smoked , a custom which
President McKlnley has adopted. The hand
some elk chairs and corner cabinets which
* race this apartment are also of Mr. Arthur's
selection , and the majority of the bowls and
vases for flowers . . nd. . the tJars for palms , ,
which are In all , ot the lower rooms , were
bought by him. The exquisite mahogany cab
inet * , table , and the mantlcpleco In the red
room were designed by him , and Mrs. Cleve
land was BO pleased with them that when
ho had the room remodeled a year or two
heo she had the doors and window framrs
done after the same pattern.
The red room was Mrs. Cleveland's favor-
Itn of the state apartments , and there she
received her guests when holding her private
receptions and teas. Mrs. McKluley has
phown a preference for the blue room and
In It she entertained the ladles of the cabi
net the evening of the first official family
dinner , and ctvrly In the spring she held her
afternoon receptions there. A new piano has
teen ulaccd In this room since her advent
In the Whlto House.
IN TUB PRIVATE APARTMENTS.
But U Is In the rooms upstairs where the
bomo life of the president's family Is largely
sjont and where the personal taste of the
flrst lady of the land has full scope. All of
the rooms on the east side of the building
upstairs are used for offices , but leading
out from them U a long corridor , which Is
rather dark and gloomy If the day clunce
to bo cloudy , but which lights up bril
liantly at night , and It was bore that Mrs.
Cleveland served the charming suppern
which sue always civo the receiving party
After the public receptions. Some of the
oldest furniture In the houss Is In this hall.
In ono corner U a verltablo "grandfather's
clock , " and on the walls are pictures ot
several of the presidents. "Mother" Mc-
Klnloy's picture , by Pelxotto , hangs near the
west entrance.
Off from this U the west hallway , which
Is used as the family sitting room , and to
which Mrs. McKlnley has already given a
delightful , homelike air. At the head of
the stairs U the brars gate which -Mrs. Cleve
land had swung to keep her llttlo folks from
tumbling down them. On the walls Just
over the railing are the three Immense pic
tures of the front view of St. Mark f , the
Coliseum and King Arthur , which Colonel
WllBcn had placed there. Two hnndsomc
cabinet * grace the east corners of the room ,
on which are the tall 'Mexican ' onyx vasca
which Mrs. Grant brought with her from the
Centennial. , , .
A window scat lines the entire bow of
the beautiful largo west window , and In It
a dozen downy pillows are piled. Mrs. Mc-
Klnley'a easy rocker Is near the table , and
en It lie the dally papers and magazines ,
Not far away IB the sweet-toned piano , wnlc.i
was one of thu first things the new mistress
ddod to this apartment , for everybody know
how fond of music she Is , and while Mlis
Mabel McKlnley , who has a lovely voice ,
was hrr guest there wore several Informal
tut admiral musicals given around this In-
Btrument. Hero Mrs , McKlnley's monilogH
were usually spent until she. weal for drlvu
between 10 and 11 o'clock. Although she la
something of an Invalid. Mrs. MoKlnloys
and aho invariably
fingers are seldom Idle ,
has on hand several pieces of needlework.
Borne years ago. when she wae much more
of en Invalid than she U now , ono winter
she crocheted and cent a large number of
lalnty allppere to the patlcnH In a charity
hospital In Cleveland ,
Like every other president , Mr. McKlnley
h s been the recipient of many unique pres.
cnts but a mosaic Ublo which stands near
the head of the stairway In this corridor
ccrta'.nly must rtcik near the head of the
list of curious gifts , It Is octagon In shape ,
and Is Inlaid of light and dark wood aud
made of Infinitely small pieces. H w s ac-
'companlcd by & letter which stated that
there are 53,000 pieces of wood In the table ,
"which wure secured from the tombs of Lln-
'coln , Johnion. Orant , Hayes , Oarfield and
'Arthur , and from the residences of Harrison
and McKlnley. The letter states , further ,
that a design runs through the table of a
Political alary which will repay lnvestl"a-
ilon , and that the table wan made by the
champion whlttler of the world and was pre
sented to the president on the Fourth of
July , 1S9T. It Is lo be feared that the ofilco
Bcekers have not allowed Mr. McKlnley the
time to unravel the story.
Draped against the Ions pier mirror 1

Twenty-third Ohio Veteran Volunteer In

the president which graced the Postal con
gress during Us sessions in the old Corcoran

prcnldent'e picture In the renter , aud con
tains the total vote of the last election. In
( no west corridor Is the eagle which was
lent him uhortly after his Inauguration.
The library Is another of Mrs , McKlnley'e
favorite room * , and the beautiful view from
Its windows of the mull , the monument , the
Potomac and the blue hilts of Virginia nml
Maryland lying In the distance Is n ncvcr-
f&lllne lourco of delight to her. The room
In oval In shape , and its walls arc covered
with A damask finished paper on which IB K

at the Centennial. On the other side of the
room U the Jnpincso cabinet which Perry
brought .with him ns a present to the United
Btates government when he returned from
his expedition to Japan during Duchanan's
administration.
SOMH NBW PICTUnBS.
A recent addition to the library Is a paint
ing of Mrs. McKlnloy. U Is a very artistic
pleco of work , and must have been n most
satisfactory portrilt at the time ot the Bit
ting. Uolow this picture , on a little round
table , Is the Illblo .which the bUhops of the
African Methodist church presented , and
which Mr. McKlnloy kissed In taking his
Inaugural oath. It Is Inclosed In a handsome
cess of wood , with braes trimmings. Of
three now pictures which have been re
ceived In the past few days , and for the
present have been put In the library , one Is
of Queen Victoria and the members of the
royal family , taken during the queen's recent
Jubilee ; another contains the pictures ot the
electoral college of Now York , and the third
Is the harbor of Illo Janeiro. This latter
Is In a very handsome cold leaf frame ,
headed with the shields of the United States
and Illo Janeiro.
The President and Mrs. McKlnley's sleep
ing apartments are the same ones which were
occupied by Mrs. Cleveland and the children ,
and load directly oft from the west corridor.
When Mrs. Cleveland used them they were
furnished In reds , but shortly after the In
auguration they were remodeled. Thu bed
room Is a largo chamber with two windows
facing Lafayette park , off from It to the west
Is Mrs. McKlnley's boudoir and bath. The
walls In all of these rooms are papered In a
Unlit robin's egg blue , while the frieze
blends Into a soft pink and again merges into
the blue of the field of the celling , the softest
of velvet carpets and rugs match the colorIng -
Ing of the papering to 'a nlcecy. The bed
steads are of brass , and the musslve center
table -ami1 the rockers are of mahogany.
Dainty lace curtains screen the windows and
on the walls are pictures of family friends
and several of Mr. and Mrs. Mi-Klnley In
their "sylvan days , " ns the Idtier laughingly
declares. On each aide of thu. m.mtol h. ng
IOIIK strands ot horseshoes which were Eont
to Mr. McKlnley during tha campaign , mid
If ho should add to theje all the rabblis'
feet and other omens of good luck which ho
received , ho might garland the entire room
with them ! Over the bed In an oval gilt
frame hangs the picture of the little
daughter , whose sudden death was such a
terrible blow to Its parents.
Hut the room of which the White House
in most proud at this time Is Colonel Dubola'
small reception room at the 'right ' of the
Tiffany screen off ot the main corridor ,
Which has lust been remodeled by Colonel
Ulnchim. and If the genial Dubols has an
attack of swell head It will be entirely owing
to his fine new quarters.
AN OLD FLEMISH ROOM.
During hU absence abroad Colonel Ding-
ham mode a careful study of the 'subject ,
and brought back with him some of the finest
architectural plans to be had In "Europe , and
In dos-Icnlnc this llttlo room he followed ac-
curatclv the old Flemish style of 200 years
ano. The Flemish style IB somewhat crude ,
but rich and thoroughly harmonious , which
Is characteristic of the old Holland Dutch.
All of the woodwork of this room , Including
the flooring. Is very dark , wax finished oak ,
which elves It a subdued richness that Is
not scon In any other mode. A wainscoting
seven feet high , and In panels twelve Inches
wide. Is carried around the entire room ;
above this Ihe wall Is covered with an olive
croon damask paper , surmounted by a frlezo
of Flemish tapestry , representing a forest
scene , bordered at the bottom with a richly
carved.and at the top with a perfectly
" '
plain "molding. ;
The celling IE 'dazzling ; H Is artificially
oxldyzed goldleaf , laid on In squares and
treated In this mannqr to produce the lin-
prcsalou that time has variegated It Into Its
wonderful coloring. The celling Is divided
Into four panels by heavy oak coping beams ,
which rest on heavily carved brackets. The
fireplace Is the main feature of the room.
It has an old Flemish hood top , covered with
dark.oak.shingles . : beneath It are pilasters
and "panels done In skillfully carved fruit
pieces. The hearth and fireplace are In
wrought Iron and olive green tiles.
At ( ho side of the fireplace Is an elabo
rately carved settee , lie two panels In the
back representing Dutch drinking sccnco ,
and the corners are finished with the heads
of two artists of that period. A highly-
polished table and three or four chairs of
the same design complete the present fur
nishing , but Colonel HltiKlmm hopes to add
a genuine antique Flemish cabinet and hand-
press , which Is to bo had In the city.
Thlu room takes one back to the sixteenth
century , and Is as artistically complete as
It well could bo , and Colonel Dlnghtim should
bo congratulated on the happy conception
ot his design.

The SurcNt Ajtcnt for Developing ;
Onl-of-the-Wny Territory.
The lust for gold Is the boat colonizer of
out-of-the-way territory known among men.
The more distant and ! i.accessible the gold
is , the more eager men are to unearth It ,
says the San Francisco News Letter. As a
matter of fact , It has almost Invariably been
found on parts of the earth's surface hard
to get at. To reach California In the early
' 50s 2,000 miles of land had to be crossed
with wagon teams , or the dangers of round
ing the Horn had to bo encountered , or the
still greater danger of Panama fever had to
be risked. Had It not been for Marshall's
discovery California had remained almost a
terra Incognita to this day. What marvo8
hath not the discovery of gold wrought In
this golden state of ours ! They need not
be recounted for they are all around us.
cud the world 1s well advised of thc-lr Im
portance. Then In far-off Australia , the very
antipodes of civilization up to 1851 , gold
was discovered at the end of the world as
It were. The results to the sunny , sout'hern
hemisphere who shall tell of them ? Several
large and self-governing communities have
grown Into Importance , and are destined
to unite Into an Anglo-Saxon republic second
only to our own. Again , In the continent
that so long remained dark to the outside
world , gold -was discovered , and forthwith
the jungle was leveled by the footsteps of
the white nun , a great city arose , fortunes )
were made , the stack exchanges of London ,
Paris aud Berlin went wild with excitement ,
and the Wltwatcrsrand gold field became the
largest single producer of gold In the world.
Now cornea the great finds In the snow and
Icebound region of Alaska. Despite almcnt
unparalleled difficulties , mm , and even
women , are at this moment rush'ng thither
as they did to California "in the days of
old the days of gold the days of " 49. "
From the tremendous results that flow
from gold seeking one would suppose that
mining was far and away the most profita
ble occupation on the face of the earth. The
truth Is that gold mining has been a direct
loss to very country that has engaged In It.
Given n rich soil and a favorable climate ,
there Is more money In a farm than in an
average gold mine. Since 1849 California
has yielded a total of $1,301,000,000 In gold.
Today our farms and orcharda arc officially
valued at $740,000,000 , of which 76 per cent
Is free from Incumbrance. That Is the added
value given to the land by reason of the labor
expended upon It. To that la to be added
the value of the crops that have year by year
been taken oft that land. With these two
Items taken together , the produce of our
farms has nearly doubled the value of that
taken from our mines. The estimated value
of all the farms In the United States Is over
$13,000.000,000 , which Is more than three
times the value of all the coined gold In the
world. The gold ore mined In California
last year yielded $13,1)00,529. ) Its production
cost $12,500,555. Of course , there was a profit
on some milieu , and a loss on others , but this
was the average , which shows that gold min
ing In the golden state leaves In the aggre
gate on Inadequate margin of profit. In 1890
the total gold and silver mined In the United
States amounted to $99,283,752 , and the capi
tal Invested was $486,323,338 , or $1.90 of capi
tal for every dollar of bullion produced. Al
though Australia has produced $500,000,000
more gold than California , It IB estimated
that the debt , principal and Interest , which
the government Incurred In supplying the
gold fields with railroads , water works , tele
graphs , etc. , will equal the total gold pro
duction. In 1892 , the year before the panic ,
our agricultural exports for the whole coun
try amounted to $77'J,328 232 , and the exports
of our domestic mat''jfaclijrr3 to Jlliu.000.000.
So that of products of uie farm and the mill
wo sold In ono year nearly as much In value
u the total yield of gold in California since
mining began to be.
It U estimated that thcro were In the
United States last year about 6,000 capital
ized bullion mines , great end small. Moro
than 11,000 mlnei produced ICBH than $10,009
each. Only twenty-eight mines of tbo C.OOO
produced over $500,000 each , and less tlun
fifty produced between $200,000 und $500,000.
There wore known to bo 1,000 non-profitable
mines worked last year , and that there were
1,266 Idle or abandoned mines. These losses
nre from mines cither developed or In pro
cess of development. They do not show 00
per cent of the total losses. The mining camps
and country from Alaska to Peru hold thou
sands of men who have spent their lives in
quest of gold. Many of thcs ? have Rjthercd
small fortunes In placer rn'i cs , only to lose
all In the tcarch for gold-bearing quartz.
Not one prospector In twenty-five , BO the
records show. Is eucr-CFHtuI , and those who
do make a strike usually lost whut they
made In further ventures. If thu amount of
capital sunk In abandoned mines and lost by
Individual prospectors were added to the cap
ital In paylug properties , It would bo found
that the search for gold IB about the most
unprofitable business a man can engage In ;
that for every dollar of gold produced , two
have been expended , with the profit to the
few and the losi to the many. But that
Is where thu attractiveness comes In. Gold
seekers are born gamblers , end It Is because
big purees are "hung up" hero and thcro In
auriferous toll that the ardent unlrlts ot
this Imuglnatlve and npecnlativo world are
so ready lo start to Alaska , or anywhere
cUe , to try their luck , In the foot bills
and Sierras of California there are as many
rich purses hidden away aa are to be found
In any other part of the world. Gold seek
ing enriches a few , and It Is because every
man believes be will be found among the
favored that so many are eager to Join In
the latest ruth , hazardous and almost Im
possible as It IB. To the extent to which
cold mining la a colonizer , the world owca U
much.

ASIC FOU UKnUORI ) HATES OX COKE.
CoiiNiiinvrN Iti > < itiCNt Hnilroml
to Millie ItiMlnt-tioil.
The consumers of coke In this vicinity are
after the freight officials of western railroads.
They call upon the rate-makers several times
a day , and then follow up their personal In
terviews with vigorous letters. The coke
consumers want the benefit of the reductions
that have already been guaranteed to the
consumers of hard and soft coal.
U will bo remembered that hard coal rates
from Chicago to Missouri river points last
week tumbled down until they reached the
$2 mark. Soft coal rates were soon afterward
[ ilacod on the same basis as hard coal rates.
This change was not a very Important one ,
as comparatively few shipments of soft coal
come to the west from Chicago , the bulk of
the soft coal coming directly west from the
Ohio mines.
The freight mere say the reason no reduc
tion In the rates on coke has yet been made
Is because such a small amount of that com
modity Is used In this territory that a reduc
tion would not be warranted. The principal
consumers of coke ore the beet sugar fac
tories. The coke men are persistent In their
efforts to have what coke they do use shipped
Into Nebraska at ratea corresponding with
the low rates for which hard and soft coal
are now being handled , and a cut in coke
rates IB not at all Improbable.

CHICAGO , Sept. 17. The Uulon Pacific
has entered a protest against being held
ta any degree responsible for the payment
of fG commissions on Colorado business and
$3 commissions en St. Paul business. It has
been claimed by some of the roads that thu
Union Pacific was reeponslble for1 these new
ratoa of commission , but the truth Is that
It Is no more responsible for them than
Is the man In the mocn. Some time ago
a meeting was held In this city between
representatives of the St. Paul , Northwest
ern , Burlington and Atchlson roads , at which
It was agreed to Ignore the rates of commis
sion that had .been pa-id b > ' the Great West
ern road and to pay cio larger commissions
than were being paid at the time of the
meeting. This agreement was broken by
the offer of the St. Paul to pay a commis
sion of $5 for the first ticket xold over Its
new road to California , and , although It
protested that It had no Intention of paying
the commlEslocB on regular bua'ncsfl , the
other roads promptly met the rate of com
mission and have been paying It ever stnco.
The Union Pacific h d nothing whatever to
do with this matter' aud was In no way
concerned with the payment of the larger
commissions.

Story by Jot ; JiTerHoii.
At the sixth annual meeting and dinner
of the Old Colony club at the Vineyard
Sound house , Falmouth Heights , Mass. , Joe
Jefferson presided and opened the proceed
ings with the following story :
"The worthy captain has Just told mo that
It Is useless to expect of him a speech , but
that If ho were walking the quarterdeck of a
ship ho would know where ho was. Now ,
that Is where he. greatly differs from myself.
When I am walking the quarterdeck of a
jlllp I do not In the least know where I am.
I am reminded of what once occurred to me.
[ was crossing the Atlantic. The weather
was dreadful. Captain Ashley knows what
that means. I was trying to guide myself
along the deck , and , Incidentally , to aid
others. In this mission I ran across a lady
ylng prostrated on the deck , evidently sorely
roublcd with that dreadful disease , scaalck-
icss.
"I said to her , 'Madame , may I bring you
anything to relieve you ? '
'liho looked up ) at mo and feebly said : 'I
icg you will not mention It. Will you also
itndly excuse me , sir ? '
"I then said to her : 'But Is there nothing
I can do for you ? '
" 'No , sir , ' said she In the same tone.
Please go away. '
" 'But , madame , ' I said , 'you are evidently
suffering. CanI do nothing to help you ? '
" 'I wish , ' said she , 'that you would go
away. I am not lit to HCO any one. '
" 'I urn sorry , madame , ' I persisted , 'that I
can be of so little service. Can I do nothing
'or your poor husband , the gentleman whoso
lead I see In your lap ? '
" 'Oh , ' said she , 'that Is not my husband.
I do not kuow In the least who he Is. ' "
