If President Wilson carries out the re
puted plan of placing his finger dally on
the congressional pulse during the spe
cial session of congress, we may expect
to see suddenly shifted Into tho limelight
of publicity one of the least known, but
orpate rooms in the United States cap
ltol. This Is thp apartment known as the
"President's room,'' and It has been up
to this time prqbably the least used of all
the rooms In the huge structure. Indeed,
In a sense, the room may be said to have
been known only to gtildes and the tour
Uts that they dally pilot through the
maies of the marble pile. The mere fact
that the president's name Is borne by
this room has long made It a magnet for
the average sightseer, and the guides
have learned by long experience to - In
clude It In the Itinerary of every peroon
ally conducted tour of the building.
But the men who work in the capital
day In, day out, have seldom gone near
this "show place," and some of them
might actually be puzzled for the mo
ment to direct you to It, if .your inquiry
caught them unaware?. This room far
tho president hasn't even needed atten
tion from the painters and decorators aa
have most of the other rooms. Perhaps
It Is because it has been so little used;
but aside from an occasional ."touching
up" heijs.and there, ery little has been
done for the maintenance of this room
since the civil war. As for actual use by
tho . president, that has been so rare as
to almost rob the room of the right to
tho use of the name. If a chief executive
were to come to the captol on the occa
sion Of any great ceremonial he might be
expected to tarry In the president's room
until time for him to enter tho legislative
hall, but such a visit Is of rare occur-
Similarly, on tne lost day or the final
ntht of a session of congress the presi
dent may go to the capltol In order o

but this Involves occupancy of the room
for only a few hours each year. In ex

at tha capltol that, with tho exception of

Just who was the originator of the Idea
pf a room for the president In the na
tional capltol seems" to bo shrouded in
mystery. History, in so far as can be as
certained, Is silent on this subject. But
for all that, the room Is one of the most
ornate In the historic edifice, Indeed, the
president's room, which Is located In the
senate wing of the capltol, at the west
end of tho private lohby which is directly
north of the senato chamber proper, (a
generally considered the most beautifully
decorated room in the building. The whole
ornamentation of the room Is the work
of Brumldl, the Italian artist, who did so
much of the more pretentious decorative
work In the capltol, and who was at his
best In the embellishment of the presi
Constantino Brumdl had a most roman
tic career. HI father was ft Greek and
his mother an Italian, and he learned In
Jlome the, n.ow almost forgotten art of
fresco. He was a captain of tho Papal
Guards at the time of the revolution In
Rome .and was thrown ln.tq prison and
remained there for more than a year,
only being released, at the Intervention
of, the, pope, on condition that he. Imme?
dlately leave Italy. This explalps his
migration to America. His first three
years In the new world were spent In
Mexico, but at the end of that time he,
took up bis residence In Washington and
entered upon -a life work, the crpwplng
achievement of which was the decoration
of the president's room.
Conspicuous among the painting in
the president's room are aplendld medal
lion portraits of President George Wash
tngton and the prominent members of
his cabinet Thomas Jefferaon, secretary
of state, Iftnry Knox, secretary ,of war,
Alexander Hamilton, secretary of the
treasury; Edmund Randolph, attorney
general, and Samuel Osgood, postmaster
general. It will not be surprising It
President Wlljon arranges, when occupy
ing this room, to faoe the portrait of
Jefferson, for his admiration for the
founder of the democratic party Is well
known, and is the more readily under
standable when It Is borne In mind that
Wilson's birthplace in Virginia." Is distant
only a few miles from the home and
tomb of Jefferson at Montlcello, and WIU
son, as a young man, attended tne un.
yerslty which was founded by Jefferson
and which was his especial pride.
In the four corners of the preldent's
room are frescoes of four famous men,
each of whom has been cffoieq as rep

One thought that Is pound to suggest
Itself upon nn Inspection of tho presi
dent's room Is that things are likely to
he somewhat crowded If the president
should desire to receive there a consid
erable, pumber of legislators nt nny one
time. There Is a huge, full-length mirror
at one side of the president's room, which
conveys an effect of spaciousness, but In
reality the apartment Is of .comparatively
modest size when compared, for Instance,
to 'that adjoining "show spacn" the fa
mous ''Marble room" built entirely of
Italian and Tennessee marble and which
Is used by the senators as a private re
Scene of Large GnthfrtiiKS.
But for all that the president's room In
rathor limited In size, It has been tho
scene of some rnther largo gatherings
A notable occasion In point was Friday,
December 18, 1874. when King Kalakaun
of Hawaii and his suite gathered In the
president's room and were greeeted by
many senators and representatives. Per
haps the most historic event that ever
had the president's room as Its setting
occurred one evening In March. 1865,
when President Lincoln, while seated In
the president's room, received from Gen
eral Grant that memorable message stat
ing that General Ieo had made tho pre
liminary overtures for peace. Here Ln,
coin consulted with the secretaries of
state and war, and here, about midnight,
he wrote with his own hand a reply
whph Was signed by Stanton and for
warded to General Grant.
It Is likely that If President Wilson
elects to- spend- any considerable time 'at
the capltol the president's room will be
refurnished. At present and. for years
past the furnishings have been only such

to thousands of persons who have mado ,

The federal Jobs that pre really worth
anything from a financial standi o'nt are
lew. There nee only ten canine amccm,
a comparatively few foreign ambpsraijpra
and ministers, nnd no very large numbor
of bureau chiefs and other ofllclala of
lesser tmportivnce , and smaller salaries,
The remaining places are very m:der
nlely paid, Tho fqderal government does
not begin to rpward Its rervnnt with
anything like hq' liberality .that many
states and cities practice with regard to
their employes. 'The average civil service
clerk In New York City, for Instance.,
would not look at a federal Job. Often he
gets twice os much money as tho man j
who is performing aimiiar fluty far uncie-
Feiv Shining Bxamptrp.
It Is well enough to polpt out a few
shining examples of modest government
employes who have ttsen to hujh place,
but the Instances are so few that they
merely emphasize the general rtllc, which
s that a man Who gives the best years
pf his life to Uncle Sam on a small aaU
ary, and who Is protected by -civil service,
s anchored for lite without much hope
of profitable promotion.
The civil service system works both
ways. It aeemj only Just that nn effi
cient cmployo should retain his place,
regardless of changes In administration.
That Is the effect of the prosent system.
On the other hand, however, tho young
citizen who papflea an examination and
finally obtains a federal Job, may os well
make up his mind to get along .on a
small salary fqr tp9 remainder of his
Jlfe. The government will put him to
work and pay him enough to give him
a fairly good living, but It guarantees
tlm nothing beyond that. Arter he has
eld a modest clerkship for ten years
or so. ho usually finds himself unfitted

Tho effect on the averagp citizen of
such a goyernment Place, after he has
occupied It for a period of years, Is to
sap both his courage and his ambition.
Government work Is done very dif
ferently from private work. Tho office
holder soon comes to realize this. When

he has unfitted himself for anything
else. Ho simply prays that the civil
reryico system may remain intact and
that Uncle ftim, who made the most of
hfs youthful daya, will continue htm
in omploy for the rest of hi life.
Training Unfits for Other Work.
When the government trains a man to
become efficient In government work It
does not give him the sort of experience
that, in nine cuBes out of ten will be of
any use to him In any other sort of
employment. The only thing that pre
vents thousands of mlddleaged men from
being thrown helpless on their own re
sources, a'ter the government has ex
acted tho best that Is In them, Is the civil
service system, which Is so roundly
cursed by the outsiders who want to get
thejr Jobs. The moment the outsiders be
come Insiders, Jiowever, their point of
view changes, They begin to admire the
cjvil service system,
It Ib a favorite device for the young
offlceseekers to point to tha cure ore of
George B. Cortelyou and William bob,
both of whom began as stenographers In
tho government service. There are a few
other flhlnlng lights whose names are used
In the same manner. But the Loebs and
