stopped when Manning had his stroke of apoplexy but then he has taking them larly and this is his only exercise He is not much of a horseman and has not as far as I can learn owned a hd to the White House He is tro heavy to well and 1 do not think he has boon in the saddle here President thur di ove a more turnout than Cleve land He now and then took a gallop over the hills on hoi and he -s drove a I His livery was gorgeous and you never saw him walking Arthur at- tended St John's iust across the street from the White always drove with his coachman and footman and on the style of n prince President land is more democratic He has his man and footman and lie keeps them in But his two turnouts the Victoria nnd the landau cost than and the harness made of black rubber and trimmed with silver has only the simple of G C in monogram on the rosette of the bridle Buchanan the last cratic president had a harness which alone cost and Jefferson paid for hie coich horses which he drove while he was president George ton drove about while he was dent four and six horse teams coachman end footman were white and his chariot of state was a white hemisphere on wheels with the paintings or One of tho famous artists of the tune The president has had a great many more at his afternoon receptions since the announcement has bean that he is about to The ladies of Washington And all strangers are anxious to see him and mot a few of thorn attempt to make some jesting remark as they shake his hand THose receptions occur in the East room on the afternoons of Wednesday and Friday of each week and Cleveland says that they Jhe pleasantest part of his daily life During them he gets away from his work and the and there is enough variety in them tn make them of the people who call are only in Washington for a day or two and the crowd that conies h of all classes There are not a few women with babies in their and it's unny to how tli president shies off and straightens himself up when one of these approaches He does not kiss babies often but when he doos it you can hear of his lips at the of the room I am inclined to think that there js more than kiss and that the president's baby kisses ara those or the stage more than sw Chv a good handshAker He stands straight on his feet at all of his re- his Prince Albert coat is kept buttoned tightly about his fat frame Ho Wires your hand firmly and grasps it tightly while he straight into your eye and How do yon do Mr Blank He ways mentions name and never fails to look at ym If you go to one of these re- you will pei haps have to wait

forms in line and in die comes up to be presented Col takes your name and duces you tothe Mr dent Mr The president grasps your hand raid gives you a shake Before you know it you lire out of tho President Cleveland can shake hands tV receptions at the rate of one for two seconds He has got the matter down to a science and ho allows none to talk to him or bother him about office at such times He is very kini to children and I think he likes to meet boys airl girls better than grown people Ho treats thj poor as well as tho richly dressed and I saw him very kin lly to a at ono of these re- the other day who passed through with a basket of oggi upon her arm The eight-hour law is about to be put in force in Washington but will not affect the president There is probably no man in the country who woi ks longer or harder than Grover Cleveland He puts in an average of seventeen hours a dly and ten hours of this at least is brain work He rises at 7 shaves and dresses himself His boots are blacked by a servant ho is particular as to his personal appearance He does not spend however much tinu in dressing and as soon as ho is through he sits down and reads the newspapers until He eats a hearty breakfast of beefsteak and fruit washing it dow n with strong coffee He then goes di- to his office and begins to write He answers all his own private ence and writes very rapidly He does not use a stenographer at all and his state papers have all been written with his own hand After writing a couple of hours his business callers begin to arrive mid ho must throw aside his ing and listen to them First come prominent men senators supremo court judges and cabinet ministers These have weighty matters to talk about and tho dent's mind must be all alive After he is through with these there are a hundred or so of rs who are admitted by cards and who must all be talked with Then there are more prominent men and BOW 1 o'clock having arrived the president goes down and gels a lunch He eats likes a school boy and it takes him about fifteen minutes to get through with this hearty midday meat He now shakes hands with the callers in the East room and then goes back to work He grinds away until 3 o'clock anil then he and Lumont take tho drives of which I have already told you After his drive ha takes his dinner He likes plain food at this and he sometimes washes it down with a glass of wine or a bottle of beer After dinner he s to his and he and Lamont away there until far into the If you will stand by the Washington ment at certain midnights of the week you may see a light glimmering in onj window of the Whit Houso across the lawn That dow is the one which out of th library just back of President Cleveland s dosk A telesi ope would tho president writing by it and you might stop an 1 watch it for an hour or two it goos out and the ness that president thinks he baa this day's salary at least and ring gone to bi d On three days of the ek the president's work is varie 1 by the meetings of the net Those me tings take place at 11 o'clock on Tuesdays Thursdays and Saturdays They last for an hour or longer according to tho amount of business on hand They are held in a large room which lies between that of Private Secretary Lamont and the THE BOOM dent's office This room is known as the nit room and in it the cabinet meetings of administration after administration have been held It is furnished with a fire place at the right and a mirror over it and several oil paintings upon the walls The cabinet table around which the ministers sit while the council of state is going on is a round-cornered affair of black nut about eight feet long and four Secretary of Interior L Q C Laniar Attorney General A H Secretary of Navy W P Secretary of Treasury D Postma s t e r General W K secretary of W C Secretary of State T P Bayard Tho President DIAGRAM OP THK CABINET TAHLE wide The president sits at the end with back towards tho window At his right is Secretary Bayard with his smooth face and natty air and next to him the stiff secretary of wur comes the postmaster general and at the lower end of tho doughty Lamar Otf Manning's ooat ia on fhe left hand It Is vacant now and no one pre- sumes to take it during the Below Manning site Secretary Whitney In eyeglasses and mar is the soat of the These cabinet meetings are very informal No one rises when he a speech and the president does not call the cabinet to order nor as a general thing put things to vote The ministers In MI kinds of positions but there is no The matters relating to the of state are discussed and those of the other secretaries in the order an they sit around the table In front of dent Cleveland thero is a pen and ink and most of the bring paper with them which they lay on the them when they sit To the left of the table on wall is a at big enough to a room reot in wze unuer it is a globe at least four feet in diameter on which is painted a map of the world The cabinet ministers often stand with the dent under this map and they discuss together as to how a thing ahull be done in the different parts of the country represented by it They gather around the globe mid questions of state policy illustrating their points upon it All of them have learned much during the past and they do nothing without ly understanding the why nnd the wherefore Cleveland's cabinet gets along very amicably together They chat with each other on the front steps of the executive mansion while they wait for their nnd Vilas is I am told the best story teller among them Vilas always rides to the White House He has an English coachman with side whiskers of tho tame dapple gray as his horse Lamar to cabinet for a time on horseback but he has hia carriage now Both Whitney and Bayard walk and you may now nnd then them coming to the cabinet meetings to getter WHITNEY AND President Cleveland is reported as ing that he is too poor to This depends on what you call poor Ono can live on or and upward a year and at the end of the year ha has only lived after all Most men with possessions would think selves well off He gets a year MANNING AND salary and somewhere between nnd more to keep up the White House establishment I can see no reason why tho president could not save money on these figures and he ought to easily save a year A great deal is made of the expense of his entertainments and state dinners but these only last from January to Lent and the cost of them has been greatly overestimated The president pays nothing for stationery fuel or house rent does not travel uny to spenk of and hia ordinary living does not cost him much more than though ho were a private citizen President Cleveland is said by Buffalo friends to have some investments about that city He made a year at his practice befor he got into politics aud some of his real investments in falo are rapidly gi owing in value Cine friend of his says he is worth at least He ought to be able to save another from salary and if ho is the kind of a man that I think be is he will go back to bis law tice when he gets out of politics FRANK The Gentral Choir Concert The concert given last evening in Jhe Central M by

for the police The moment thut tempted to disperse the mo i the bomb sped en i s destructive errand and into the ranks of the policemen a murderous fire of bullets was poured The officers rallied and returned the fire How many of the mob to-night no one knows The officers at first paid their attention to their own fallen comrades and the victims among the rioters were carried away by their own

defying men together with the excited con- dition of public feeling demand that the position of the organized association of this city represented in the Trades and Labor Assembly and District Assembly 34 should be clearly and officially defined the means employed to secure a recognition of their demands stated and the facts spread broadcast that they have neither sympathy nor affiliation with any clans of men who set law and order at defiance From the in- ception of the eight hours movement to the present time they have spoken with no uncertain sound They have consistently and persistently deprecated a resort to violence and that course they meant to sue to the end But while they thus unhesitatingly condemn the action of all as unwise and unnecessary they take this occasion to announce they are none the Jess determined to secure the recognition and adoption of the eight hour system by any and every lawful means within their power and intend to fight it out on that line if it takes all summer In this connection they earnestly re- quest all saloon keepers to refuse to sell liquor to men under its influence or to those known to be addicted to ita use By 80 doing they

tbe men in conversation The man said he conld not understand why it is that men could not do as they think best He had comelo this country because the Agent who had told him to grate had promised him he would come to a free country He had come here with idea that this a free one in which a man conld do what he pleased Now he had found out that the police in this country nen just at had as those in Europe and protected the prop erty of the rich which the workingmen wanted to destroy because they wanted to compel the rich to become their equal Therefore he hated the American police as much as he did the officers in and thought it just to kill them and their spies being a spy they had driven him frim the neighborhood and are now doing their best to demolish the building which gave him shelter in the day a big deep-chested red mouthed Anarchist stood at the corner of Evergreen and Leavitt streets a small crowd and advocating the tion of the police This fellow however was an Englishman A

lighting They can be d anywhere from a six candle power up wards though for stores the sixteen candle power are the ones in general use Thin light can not be successfully operated on an arc circuit as
