(From Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, Tab. 2. (Special.) An
Interesting b!t of gossip was uncovered
recently whlek tndleatea that It waa Pres
ident McKlnley and not President Roose
velt who discovered cabinet timber In Qov.
arnor Shaw of Iowa. Hon. John A. kas
on of the Haakeye atate is responsible
for the storr. and this la the way ha re
late. U: .
"8ooa after the announcement of the re
tirement of Attorney General Qrlggl from
the Department of 'Justice, the president,
speaking to aome callers, said: 'I wish that
Governor Shaw of Iowa were a lawyer, t
have the greatest admiration for him and
but for the tact that ha la a banker Instead
of a member of the bar I should Invite blra
to accept the portfolio Mr. Griggs is re
elgnlng.' "President McKlnley," Mr. KaSsoa lidded,
"further said It was quit within the
bound of probability that Mr. Bhkw would
ccup a seat at the cabinet table."
Trlfc.t. Mr a. Shaw.
It Is a pleasure to know that the Wash
ington correspondents have taken Mrs.
Lee lie M. Shaw at her true worth and have
found her a moat womanly woman, inter
ested In alt things that tend to the uplift
ing of the race and that Initead of being
a biueatocklng of bluestockings, . a
Puritan of Purltsns, she . Is re
garded as one of the most sensible
women In the official life of Washington.
Apropos the following gentle tribute from
the Buffalo Evening Times of recant
data la herewith reproduced:
Oh. ye ancient women, who think to
keep back the tide of years with the
rouge pot and the dressmaker, assum
ing by their aid the aspect of a factiti
ous youth and who dance the dance of
death with aetuailv young people Ih the
gas-heated atmosphere of bill rooms,
and over-load your aged "tummies" with
chicken aalad, and ices and champagne
punch and other delectable mixtures which
would try the stomach of a Han-American
ostrich, get the New York World of last
Sunday and behold a real woman and not
a bogus one, with no patches on her cheeks
and no rouge upon her lips, and no stays
to confine the comfortable dimensions Of
her form, but with a smile of goodness
on her lips end tha light of tenderness nnd
gentleness In her eyes, and be at named
There is nothing so ghastly aS age mas

The woman described In the Sunday
paper referred to Is Mrs. Leslie M. Shew,,
wlf. of the secretary of tha treasury, whe
ia from Iowa, and brlnga a breath of
, aweet western atmosphere with her Into
the ' hot and artificial surroundings of
Washington life; and she talked . to tha
newspaper woman who reported hef of her
children and her husband, of their early
atrugglea and of her mature years with
out affectation and without pretense, and
every line of that unaffected .talk stamped
tha whole-souled motherly looking wo
man every inch a lady In the truest ac
ceptance of the word and not a galvanised
and venerable popinjay who had been over

tinues to be an excellent story-teller. The

i three talked about? Politics? no. Drama?
No. CapUIn Hull's candidacy for r.ndmtni
tlon In the Sevanth Iowa district No. The
possibility of William Jennings Bryan belbl

Immortality of tha soul. Just whether lie
speaker's liver waa out of Joint that morn
ing, Mr. Lambertaon did not sty, and Mr.
Burkett, being a discreet man, also refused
to assign a eause for so profound a dis
suasion. Mr. Lambertson, however, apropos
pt the talk bad with tha speaker, told the
"I knew tha lata Justice Miller of the
. supreme court very well. I think ha was
one of tha brightest msa whom I ever
cams In contact with. Ons day, being In
a especially reminiscent mood, he said to
me that the subject of the Immortality of
the soul had disturbed him much: that ha
had read a great many philosophical dis
cussions about it, and while ha had reached
a conclusion, still ha wanted to ha buoyed
' up In bla beliefs, and eo oua afternoon ha
- sent word to Salmon P. Chase, then secre
tary of tha . treasury, that ha desired to
speak to the latter upon a vary serious
question and asksd him to coma to bis
house. Mr. Chsse cam on tha evening
designated by Justice Miller. Tha justice
at once launched Into the subject, about
which he wanted to consul . with hit

his friend about the doubts and uncertain

WAITS ON OLD FATHER TIME
o.tofllce Clock Takes Sport
Then Stop, for Tern
For nearly a year now the big clock In
ths tower of th. government building has
been keeping perfect time, which made the
fact that It gained ten minutes on Satur
day all the more remarkable. People were
so In the habit of relying upon it that half
the private' clocks and watches In the city
were pushed ahead ten minute. Even some
of the so-called "regulator." were altered
to conform to thl. error ot Uncle Sam',
John Rudd, the jeweler, -who ha. the
contract for keeping the big timepiece in
order, detected the sudden spurt, and went
up to see what wa. th. matter. Every
thing seemed to be in normal condition.
Ha .topped th. 100-pound pendulum and
.at down to . wait tan minute, for Father
Time to oatch up. It wa. then that he
observed something which may explain the
feverish condition of the clock. Three
pigeons were roosting serenely on the
sheathing that protects ths bandrods ot
the west fade. For awhile it waa a mys
tery as to how they got In, but this wss
soon explained by the fact that a narrow
ventilating window In the room below waa
open. The pigeons bad entered tnrougn
this, and thence, had flown up through the
hatch that Is pierced in ths floor at the
head of tha iron staircase.
Just how the pigeons affected the working
ot tha clock, dr whether they affected It at
all or not, cannot be explained. If it had
been aa engine they might have produced
the result by roosting on the safety valve,
but this clock has no safety valve. How
ever, It Is an interesting fact that the
advent of the pigeons and tha erratle con
duct of the clock were coincident; also
that now, tb birds gone, the clock Is keep
ing perfect time again. Mr. Rudd did not
alter the regulator In any way.
