TUB CITIZEN, W13I1NH8DAY, WHO. 21, 1010.
Plans Reduce House One-third,
but With More Seals,
SHELVES TO REPLACE DESKS.
Changes Likely to Bo Made In Time
For Opening of Sixty-second Session
In December, 1911 Orators Will
Benefit, as Extreme Lung Power Will
Not Be a Necessity.
Finns for reducing by over one-third
Uio slzo of the lml! lu which the na
tional house of representatives sits and
jot lncreasliiR the number of scuts for
members have Just been completed.
Thoy will be brought to the ofllclnl at
tention of tho members of the house
within a short time, with the expecta
tion that they will be npproved and
tliat the work of alteration will bo car
ried out In thu oight months interven
ing between tho adjournment of the
present session nnd tho convening of
the house of the Sixty-second congress.
The present hall of tho house Is 130
feet long by 03 feet wide. Under the
new plans It will bo only 89 feet long
nnd Ot feet wide. In the present hall
there are Individual chairs and desks
Xor each member; in the proposed hall
there will be rows of chairs, as in the
big theaters, with n shelf in front upon
which one who Is speaking can put bis
notes and other lMxks nnd papers.
Less Lung Power Necessary.
Agitation for a reduction In the slr.e
of the hall of the house has been con
tinuous for several years. Many mem
bers have felt that they would like to
be heard all over the chamber without
shouting nnd without having lung
power made the test of their oratorical
ability. The present hall Is so large
that the left hand side doesn't hear
what tho right baud side is saying.
Visitors to the bouse who have heard
the great debates in the house of com
mons or In the chamber of deputies
have not been complimentary to the
American statesmen, nnd their com
ments have more than once drifted to
the ears of members of the house.
In searching for a cause the Ameri
can politicians have discovered It In
the size of the hall In which they must
carry on their debates. The othei
parliamentary bodies with which they
have been compared meet In chambers
of much smaller size, in which every
inflection of the voice is clear. If the
American representative must use bis
extreme lung power with every word
In order to be heard, it is argued, how
can he make an impression as an ora
tor? The plan now proposed will not In
Tolvo any structural changes in the
main walls of tho capltol, and If after
trial the now house Is found to be un
satisfactory or too small tho hall can
Imj changed to Its present size by
knocking out of the partitions which
practically make the smaller hall a
chamber within a chamber. That's
-what the latest plan projioses to erect
partitions of a substantial character
within the present chamber and to
devote a part of the present tloor space
to lounging and cloak rooms.
Smaller Than Present Senate.
If the plan now proposed Is carried
out the hall in which will sit the 400
members of the house will be smaller
than the chamber In which gather the
ninety-two soon to bo ninety-six
United Stntes senators. The senate
chamber is tl.T feet long by 80 feet
wide, to accommodate the same num
ber. One of the objections raised against
the former plan for a smaller bouse
was that pillars were to be placed In
front of the galleries. Under the new
plan there will be no pillars except
in front of the press gallery, but the
press gallery will run the entiro length
of the bouse and therefore give the
newspaper men more room tbnn they
Inasmuch as the celling will not bo
lowered, it Is thought that the other
galteries, while reduced In length In
accordance with the reduced length of
the sides, will be wider and have
enough more rows of seats to accom
modate the same number as now.
FAMOUS PEARLS ARE "DYING"
Noted Necklaces Losing Their Luster
The great pearl necklace In tho
Louvre museum, consisting of 1-15
pearls and valued at $00,000, which
was once the property of Mine. Thiers,
was reported some time ago to be "dy
ing," Through disuse the pearls were
losing their luster and gradually but
sertalnly decllulng in value.
According to a London paper, the
tamo deterioration haB boon noticed
In a rope of pearls belonging to tho
wife of a peer.
"After a death In the family four
cars ago the owner of tho Jewels had
Shem locked away," Bays tho owner of
the article, "In a dark place, the at
mosphere of which must have Influ
enced tho luster of tho pearls. They
were taken out a few days ago and
found to be perfectly dull. The change
which baa been known to take place
In many years occurred hero In a com
paratively short time."
Samoan Population Is Small.
The population of the Samoan Is

LE BLANC GIRL NOT GUILTY.
Crowd Cheers When She Is Acquitted
