THE PITTSBURG DISPATOH, SUNDAY, PEBRTJART 17, 1889.
1 PIQUANT PEOBLEM
Which is Agitating the Dwellers in
the District of Columbia.
WHO WILLTHECABINETLADIES BE?

JCECESS1T1' F OE A XEW WHITE HOUSE
Washington; February 1G. The air is
heavy with expectancy. If the country at
large is interested in the composition of the
coming Cabinet, think what a matter of great
pith and moment must be that piquant
problem to the dwellers of the Columbian
District! Here will reside the all-powerful
Ministers, whose relation to the Executive
is so well expressed by Shakespeare:
".Lesser than he, yet gieater." Under the
immediate sway of the mighty eight, hun
dreds of workers who inhabit this little tri
angular slice of the world must pursue the
even (or uneven) tenor of their way during
the next four years. Of paramount im
portance is it to them that the chief under
whom they serve should be, if not
s jolly good follow, at least a good fellow;
above all, one not Cribbed and confined as
to expenditure within the paltry limits of
the Ministerial salary. The periodic
turkeys of the present Naval Secretary are
ardently hoped for in his successor. I fear,
indeed, that the precedent set by Mr.
"Whitnev will constitute a damnosa heritas
for all future bearers of the naval portfolio.
CURIOUS CABINET CALLS.
Even the female population of the district
is all agog on the subject of the Cabinet
Next to the receptions at the 'White House,
the Cabinet calls are most dearly cher
ished. Should the ladies of the coming eight
not be agreeable, courteous, willing and
anxious to be seen by all and sundry, the
popular voice will cry them down. One of
the oddest delusions in the world pre
vails regarding the right of the
public to invade the drawing; rooms of
the wives of officials in "Washington.
"Ma" and "the girls" from "Wayback
honestly believe that the gilded salons of
the leading ladies of "Washington are, in a
sense, their own property, the husbais of
these ladies being in the pay of Uncle Sam,
i. e., in the pay of the husband and father
of ma and the girls from "Wayback. So they
enter houses without introduction, and treat
the lady of the mansion as if she were a
passing show got up for their amusement
At the residence of one of the millionaire
Senators there occurred, the other day, a
scene which was worthy pictorial represen
tation by the pencil of one of the best
humorous artists. The Senator's wife was
receiving, w hen enter Aunt Jerushaand
Cousin Sue from the agricultural dis
tricts. "Sakes alive! aint this scrumptious!" ex
claimed Aunt Jeru.
"Wal, this beats all I ever heerdon!" re
Tbey danced up and down on the sofa
springs like Margery in "The Bough Dia
mond;" they fingered the marble statues,
roaring with laughter at the scant drapery
of a half-lite size replica of Canova's
Cupid and Psyche; finally they elbowed
their way through the aristocratic throng to
the hostess herself. They seemed not to
regarded her as human at all, but merely
as an objet de luxe, like the rest of the fine
things. Seizing the side breadth of her
gown, they examined it with critical scru
tiny. All silk; not a bit of cotting in it!" de
cided Aunt Jeru.
"Oh, pshor; go 'long!" exclaimed the in
The hostess cut short the colloquy. "Al
low me to offer you a cup of tea," she
"Tea! exclaimed the agricultural visit
ors in a supercilious ensemble, "we didn't
come here to drink slops; we don't pay your
husband for that! Give us some fried oysters
and a plate of slaw!" )
AS O'EE TRUE TALE.
Kay, nay, honor bright! Or at least let
me say, I tell the tale as it was told to me.
Se non e vero, e ben trovato. Oh, that the
pen of that past-mistress in the art ot fine
manners, Mrs. John Sherwood, might be
multiplied a thousand fold, to ply its much
needed function in every corner of the land!
And yet it is but fair to say that consider
ing the vast numbers of persons who come
to Washington the garden spot of social
cnlture whose experience of society has
previously been an unknown incident, a
quantite negligeable, the rarity of such oc
currences speaks well for the innate re
finement of our people; even those of the
remotest sections of the country.
Discussion anent the wortblessness of the
"White House is one of the stirring topics of
the hour. The verdict is unanimous that
the old shanty has outlived its usefulness:
it is a structural wreck. The sort of "White
House that is required for an executive
mansion is a companion" piece in architect
ure to the Sts te Department. Large as that
building is, every loot of space in one of
similar proportions could be utilized to ex
cellent advantage. Eeserving the entire
south side for the Presidental residence, the
northern portion would serve for the Presi
dental business offices, thus preserving a de
cent privacy for the family of the Chief
Magistrate, and any snrplus rooms could be
used for various Governmental operations,
which are now carried on in certain tumble
down old brick houses scattered here and
there about the city; musty old tenements,
grimy with age, poison-spots for dampness
and malodorous drainage.
The necessity for more extensive quarters
for the reception of the people by the Presi
dent and his wife is obvious. The real
truth is that every thronged assemblage in
the "White House at present is an occasion
of danger. The old sheebang will collapse
some day, a la mode of the one horse shay.
"We shall pay for Presidental simplicity
by a frightful loss of life. The crowds
which flock on Saturdays to Mrs. Cleve
land's receptions are of colossal proportions.
As a drawing star this Presidental first
lady (prima donna) is the greatest magnet
the country lias ever known. A solid pha
lanx, of about six or eight abreast, stretches
from the portico of the White House, along
the avenue, past the State Department,
turning the corner of that great building,
running alongside it its whole length, and
so down to the river! And all this human
Mississippi expects to flow past Mrs. Cleve
fend between the hours of 3 and 5. As a
matter of fact it does nothing of the sort It
is dammed midway by the police; and it
hem! returns the compliment with interest
Talk of the sufferings of cattle in the trans
portation cars! Think of Mrs. Cleveland's
callers, about four hours on the hoof, and
then to be told when nearly dead with
fatigue that it is 5 o'clock, that the front
door of the "White House is closed, and that
Mrs. Cleveland has gone driving through
the south entrance!
Those that get in are in clover. That's
the trouble; they won't go away. They get
their hands shaken by Mrs. Cleveland; they
take a good look at that world famous face
ot hers; they pass from red room to bine
room, from "blue room to east room, while
Fwectest music resounds upon the perfumed
air, and an ordered wilderness of blooms
sets off the picture of upholstered splendor,
of circulating humanity, exhilarating in
the extreme. Suddenly a happy thought
arises, why not re-enter the procession, and
get the hand shaken again! They do so;
they uo so once; they do so twice. "Hope
you've been well since I saw you last,"
murmurs the acute First Lady, who recog
nizes the dodge, and dodger. Meantime
the "outs" as usual in political life are
"just cusUn'" "the ins."
SPEED TIIE PABTIirO GUEST.
The remedy! A posse of female "grooms
of the chambers" p welcome the coming,
but to particularly speed the parting guest
The hano-shaken guest wants to be speeded
the worst kind. One journey past the-first
lady and through the rooms should be
enough; then each person should be directed
to the exit In this way there might be
fewer than a thousand people or more dis
appointed each time tne rxesiaent s wiie
holds a public reception.
"We are feeling the approach of the inau
gural Fourth very acutely in Washington.
The route of the Presidental procession
will be black with humanity. Every
vacant space is being fitted up with car
pentry, scats upon which are to be had for
money lots of it I hear of S250 being
asked far the use of a room with two large
windows for the day. Lodgings have gone
up to an exalted price. Three hundred dol
lars a month for a parlor floor (without
food) was asked a friend or mine yesterday.
I have mvself been doing some pricing for
inaugural week for out-of-town friends. I
was asked 520 a week for one small room
without board in a scrubby-looking house
in a horrid street
Washington sadly needs a fine new hotel.
An addition to the edifices of this kind is
being made by the remodeling of the old
office building on the corner of Pennsyl
vania avenue and Fifteenth street, opposite
the Treasury. The transformation will be
made in a month's time, or so it is expected.
The location is a fine one, because so central,
but it is not the one that the projector of the
coming Grand Hotel de Washington must
select Te lulfil his chosen mission he must
plant his People's Palace upon one of the
aristocratic elevated quarters of this
lovely city; remembering the exquisite
dictum of Berthold Auerbach:
"Upon the heights there lies repose."
