CHAT ABOUT CONGRESSMEN.
Some Lively Anecdotes Related by a
From the yew York Tribune,
Senator George, of Mississippi, is one of
tbe most bowlegged men in Congress and,
by the way, there are a great many of them.
It is one of tbe traditions of the country
where be comes from that his trousers are
cut with a circular saw. The result is that
these garments are usually conspicuous for
a baggy appearance where they are widest.
Senator Vance called the attention of a
group of his colleagues standing in the
lobby of his hotel to this interesting phe
nomenon and then remarked:
“I never get a rear view of my old friend
George without thinking of the story of an
old tar-heel down in North Carolina who
went to a circus for the first time in his life.
After that memorable event he was sitting
around the tavern fire one evening relating
his experience to a group of his cronies and,
regarding them with an air of superiority,
under which they were meekly inquisitive.
One of them timidly asked:
‘“Did you see the bar at the circus, Uncle
Zeke? Did you see the bar?’
“ * Yaas,’ responded the old man solemnly,
‘I done seen the bar.'
“ ‘What sort of a bar was it, Uncle Zeke?’
“ ‘Waal, I never dono seen a bar afore,
but I 'low that it rnought be a right smart
of a bar.’
“ ‘Did you see the lion, Uncle Zeke?’
“ ‘Yaas, I done seen the lion.’
“ ‘What sort of a lion was it, Uncle Zekef
“‘Waal, I never donej>oen a lion afore,
hut I ’low that it mought be a right smarj
of a lion.’
“ ‘Did you see the camel, Uncle Zeke?’
“ ‘Yaas, I done seen the camel’
“ ‘What sort of a camel was it, Uncle
“ ‘Waal, I never done seen a camel afore,
but I ’low that it mought boa right smart
of a camel.’
“ ‘Did you see the elephant. Uncle Zeke?’
“ ‘Yaas, I done seen the elephant.’
“ ‘Wnat sort of an elephant was it?’
“ ‘Waal, I never done seen an elephant
afore, an’ I ’low that it mought be a right
smart of an elephant; but it ’peared to me
like as if ho had a heap o’ slack leather
about his pants. ’ ”
Senator Daniel, of Virginia, Gen. Ma
hone’s successor, will not cut a very great
figure in the Senate, I think, though his
Southern admirers sometimes refer to him
as the “Henry Clay of Virginia.” He can
make a flowery speech and deliver it like
an actor, but such qualities do not count for
much in the Senate nowadays. What is
wanted is a vast amount of information,
industry and common sense. These the
new Senator nossesses only to a limited de
gree. He looks much like the pictures one
sees of John Wilkes Booth, though he him
self prefers to be for obvious reasons com
pared to Edwin Booth. He is straight and
tall while he speaks, and though he hobbles
about on crutches, he discards them the
minute he addresses a public audience. His
voice is clear, resonant and pleasing. His
accent is South'ro. He calls to “toe,” and
speaks the word court as though it were
pronounced “coat.” He says “fo” for for,
and has the other usual dialectisms of the
South. In his speeches he is fond of intro
ducing startling comparisons. I remember,
for instance, hearing him say in the House
“You might as well pul a mustard plaster
on a bald head for heart disease as to apply
legislation for tl*o cure of labur troubles.”
Now, such kind of talk will never do for
the Senate and Major Daniel will find this
out very quickly. He is, by the way, en
joying the reputation of being the most in
veterate “dry smoker” in pongress. You
rarely see him without an unlighted cigar
in his mouth. He is, in addition, the most
careless man about dress imaginable. He
is worse than old Van Wyck used to be—
and that is saying a good deal.
While everybody admits that Springer
and Townshend possess the “gift of gab” in
an eminent degree, it is universally con
ceded that Senator “Joe” Blackburn can
outdo either of them. Adlai Stevenson, the
Assistant Postmaster General, is responsible
for a story which seems to prove it. He is
a Kentuckian by birth ana he and Black
burn attended the same school “befo’ the
wah. ” Two f ello w students got into a “per
sonal difficulty” which at last became so
serious that an appeal to the “code” was re
garded as necessary. Stevenson and Black
burn were chosen as seconds by the princi
pals. “Joe” was the happy owner of a pair
of pistols which were to Be used on the oc
casion. Surgeons were engaged, the ground
selected and sunrise was fixed as the time
when “honah” should be vindicated. At
daybreak on the following morning ail par
ties were on the ground. The distance was
measured and the principals were placed,
facing each other, each with his loaded pis
tol in hand.
“It was customarv at that time,” said
Stevenson, “for each man’s second at that
stage of the business to address some re
marks of a hortatory nature to his princi
pal, partly with a view to prevent an un
necessary spilling of blood and partly to
impress him with the solemnity of the occa
sion. Well, the sun had just appear oil above
the horizon; the sky was unclouded; dew
drops sparkled like diamonds on the grass
and foliage; birds sang their morning
hymns; all nature smiled and peace reigned
everywhere except in the breasts of the two
boys who stood facing each other, wuitiug
for the word to fire. Nothing remained to
be dono except to give the usual advice. I
looked toward Joe and said:
“ ‘Now, Joe, you say whatever you desiro
to your man and I will follow you.’
“ ‘All right,’ replied Joe, and he began.”
At this point Stevenson always stops as
though the story was ended and the anxious
listener is expected to ask:
“Well, how did the dvel result? Was
either man killed?”
And then Stevenson, with a grave face,
“You see, the fact is, the duel never was
“Why, as I said, Joe began his little
speech just as the sun rose, and when he
had concluded the sun had set and it had
become so dark that the men could not see
to shoot, and they gave up the idea of fight

Among the new Congressmen Is M. T.
Biggs—"Old Biggs,” he calls himself —of
California. He is noted for his hospitality
and invites every ne.w acquaintance to visit
California and visit him. “Just inquire for
‘Old Biggs,’ everybody knows him and you
will always And the latch string out,” is his
usual form of invitation. Mr. Biggs emi
grated to California from Missouri many
years ago. He left behind a brother, who
is quite as original a character as the Con
gressman. Tho former was a member of
the State Senate some years ago whim Col.
Golman, now Commissioner of Agriculture,
was Lieutenant Governor. Tho latter was
deeply interested in tho success of a bill to
provide for the printing of 30,000 extra
copies of the State Report on Agricult uro.
Biggs, although a large farmer, opposed the
bill and delivered tho speech which killed it.
In doing so he told a good story at Column’s
expense. Said he:
“Mr. President, I’m agin book farmin’; I
learned to b > a farmer at the plow tail and
that’s tho only way to learn Now I have
great respect for Col. Column and know
t hat he is in earnest in this matter, hut he
is mistaken. He is the editor of an agri
cultural newspaper which I have taken for
a great many years. My family could not
get. along without it. It isfml ot interestin’
and amoosin’ tales, which they enjoy. But,
Mr. President, I was about to say that I
found out from that newspaper, at conside
rable expense, that book farmin’ don’t pay.
I read in it one day. before I knew as much
86 I did after I took its advice, that it was
n S' od plan to let sheep run in an apple or
chard. Now I had a young apple orchard
which was the pride of my heart. Every
tree was about four feet high and vigorous
and thrifty, witli bark as smooth as a lady’s
cheek. \Y ell, one morning I turned my flock
sheep into that orchard and rode off to
( ounty Court. When I rode back in tho
evenin’ I stopped to lpok at the orchard, for
Jt was pj tde ut my heart. Mr. President,
that apple orchard had disappeared; the
sheep were there but ‘nary’ an apple tree
C ? u i I got down from my horse and
climbed the fence and tried to find mv apple
orchard, but It was gone. At last, Mr.
President, I did ‘disldver’ one poor little
st ub about a foot high and the old ram was
a-buckiiT at that. No, sir. this book farmin’
"’on’t do. I know it to my sorrow.”
I hat was the last of Coinian’s bili.
Congressman Martin, of Texas, who blow
out the gas in his room at Willard’s last
week and came very near death's door in
consequence, is not the only one of his type.
An employe of the House lias been telling
rue about anew Congressman from the
West, who came walking into the hall,
looked around for awhile with an air of
ownership os if he had just bought the
Capitol and was pleased with his purchase,
and then inquired which the vacant desks
were. When told they were all vacant he
seemed gratified and asked how they were
“Every member selects for himself,” was
“Which have been taken?”
“None. Nobody has been in to choose
“Wa’al, that’s lucky, ain’t it; so I’m the
first man on the ground.” and walking away
with a satisfied air he picked out a seat
nearly in front of the clerk's desk and ob
served : *
“I reckon I’ll roost here.”
The word was passed around among the
messengers and pages, and, as usual, they
were ready for a lark. A card was cut upon
which the new Honorable wrote his name,
and then one of the boys shoved it in the
frame made for the purpose. Next they
showed him to the stationery room, where
he inquired into the perquisites of a legis
lator and seemed greatly pleased at the idea
of haying so much tine letter paper and
sundries at his disposal. He gave each of
the pages a pocketknife and the stationery
clerk put him up an assortment of all kinds
and sizes of paper and envelopes, which he
packed away in his desk. Thon he sat down
to write a letter home and “tell the folks all
all about it.” He will discover eventually
wdiat the boys were laughing at.
I heard about another member of the
freshman class at the Capitol who discov
ered the House restaurant, ordered a square
meal, ate it with great gusto and was then
almost knocked out of nis chair by having
a cashier’s check presented to him. He had
previously taken a bath and offered to pay
for it, but. was told that it was a free gov
ernment institution. He naturally con
cluded that a groat Nation—spelled with a
big N—that bathed its servants and j>aid
men to rub them down, fed them as well,
and thought the waiter was trying to hum
“Isn’t this the members’restaurant?” ho
“Yes, sir,” replied the waiter.
“Weil, I’m a member from 80-and-8o,”
“Can’t help that, sir; members pay just
like other folks.”
Well, it all ended by the new member
hauling out his wallet and in a cautious
way settling the bill, but it will take some
time for the idea to get through his head that
while the government provides every op
portunity for its legislators to be clean, it
has not reached that point yet where it pro
poses to feed them.
Some of the new Congressmen, I may say
in a general way, require a good deal of
room, but they will be able to get along
with less presently. A member is never so
wise or important as on the day he arrives
in Washington, but the atmosphere absorbs
much of his size and by evaporation he
subsides to his natural dimensions.
RICH, BUT DRIVEN FROM HOME.
The Eventful Life Led by Willie Ruter
Under Two Guardians.
From the New York World.
The testimony taken before Referee Ed
ward Whitney Hall Monday in the Ruter
case wholly contradicted that of last week,
when Emily Ruter testified that her brother
Dederick did not beat her cruelly. At the
examination yesterday Willie Ruter 11
years of age, a brother of Emily, told this
story of Dederick. When his parents died
Dederick, he said, put Emily and
himself in the Mount Vernon Mount
Orphan Asylum. After remaining
there a year Dederick took the two
children to a farm on Long Island. From
there the hoy was shifted from place to
glace without receiving any schooling.
■ederick often beat him. To Referee Hall
he showed a scar from a wound that Deder
ick had inflicted with a club. He was made
to work hard. When asked by Lawyer
Morris if he considered Dederick a proper
guardian for him the poor boy replied, with
Dederick’s|cruelty became unbearable; the
boy applied to the Surrogate for a moro hu
mane guardian, and Christian Bambach
was appointed. The new protector was not
one whit better than the one whose place he
had taken. Bambnch was a builder, and,
according to the boy’s testimony, he made
him work night and day without paying him
any wages. Growing tired of this new op
pression, the boy ran away and found em
ployment with the Manhattan Beef Com
pany, in the Manhattan Market, on
Eleventh avenue, where he is at present
employed. When asked by the lawyers yes
terday why he ran away from Bambach,
the boy replied that he had been put out of

she told him that Dederick treated her in a

the death of her parents she was forced, on
account of the cruelty of Dederick, to

silk handkerchief to view above thebdgo of

hearted conductor for a lift of a lew miles
on his weary way across the country;

MRS. CLEVELAND’S HUMOR.
Pleasant Gossip About the Lady of the
From the .Yeio York Herald.
Washington, Dec. J. —The following
paragraph is now going the rounds:
“And now comes, a Miss Couzens, who
writes verses and insists that President
Cleveland’s marriage resfulted from a poem
she wrote advising such a stop. But the
public is sceptical. Let her try it on
David B. Hill, and stand or fall by the out
Miss Couzens is Miss Phobe, who was made
United States Marshal in St. lAm is by the
authority given to Justice Miller, the va
cancy' being caused by the death of Miss
Couzens’ father last summer.
The lame artist. Miss Marion Foster, has
also claimed that it was on account of a por
trait she painted of him that the President
began seriously to think of marriage, though
in what the magic charm consisted she has
not explained fully.
Mrs. Cleveland has a keen sense of humor
and has, says one who bus talked with her
several times, been greatly amused at the
many different theories of which she has
been told as to who or what suggested to the
President the idea of marrying. Everybody
seems to think it could not” have originated
within himself, as it is so unusual for one
who has lived over forty-five years a bache
lor to think of marriage without some
strong influence being brought to bear upon
him in that direction.
In this connection Mrs. Cleveland has
merrily told of the equivocal speech a lady
friend of hers made when a conversation
was in progress on this subject, who said, “I
think it was Miss Folsom herself who sug
“Of course,” said the lady to whom Mi's.
Cleveland laughingly mentioned this, “she
meant that the great attractions of Miss Fol
som naturally suggested to the President
the desire to marry her.”
“I suppose, as she was my friend,” an
swered Mrs. Cleveland, with twinkling eyes,
“that was what she meant, but it sounded
ABOVE ALL CBITICISM.
Says a lady who traveled much in this
country last summer:
“I was more than once asked by ladies as
well as by gentlemen during my travels
who had never met Mrs. Cleveland or been
in Washington since she has presided in the
White H use how it is that they had never
read or heard an adverse criticism of her.
‘Can it be possible,’ they ask,‘that she always
does the right thing and never hurts any
“ ‘She is so young,’ they continue, ‘and has
had so little experience in life, it seems mar
velous that “he never does or says anything
to antagonize any one or provoke unkind
“ ’lt does seem almost impossible,’ I an
swered, ‘but it is true and I have never
known of a similar instance in the case of
manor woman since I have lived in Wash
ington. Usually, the fact of a person of
either sex being in a high position and
having youth and good looks is enough
to provoke envy and so give rise to spite
ful comments, even it wholly unde

given by some good fairy at her birth the
wonderful gift of being able to disarm envy,
hatred, malice, and all uncharitableness, anil
no one apjiears to feel disposed to find fault
with her.’ ” 4
HER PLEASANT CONVERSATION.
The wife of a prominent naval officer,
whose good fortune it has been to meet
ladies at the courts of Europe, says:
“It has equally been my good fortune to
have had several times opportunity to talk
with Mrs. Cleveland when there was but
one other present. She talks right along
like any other young lady, with no self-con
sciousness or appearance of being on her
guard, far less of talking for effect, yet she
never said anything that, the most evil dis
posed person could nave repeated to her dis
advantage. Her replies are always quick
in answer to the most unexpected remarks,
yet always appropriate.
“One evening 1 chanced to speak with her
about the late Senatar Log m’s widow and
Mrs. Morrison, the wife of the ex-Cotigress
man from Illinois, and said how different
the two ladies were, and that each in a very
different way had been a great assistance to
her husband in his political career, though
Mrs. Morrison was rarely seen in public,
while Mrs. Logan during her husband’s life
was constantly in society.
“Mrs. Cleveland said: ‘I suppose each
helped her husband in the way he most need
ed help. 1 think it is so nice for a woman to
be able to help her husband in the way he
most needs it.’
“She spoke as if this was something about
which she had often thought, and there was
an earnestness in her tone as she spoke the
last sentence and an expression in her face
which showed that her ambition—perhaps
her only one—lay in that direction. Except
that she seems to have no vanity she would
have learned before this time that her goal
NOT A POLITICIAN.
“Mrs. Cleveland seldom if ever discusses
politics, and you would never know if you
heard her talk, without knowing who she
was, whether her preference were for
people of any political party because of
their politics, for she speaks equally kindly
“When she came back here from her long
trip it is said, she found at least 100 letters
awaiting her. She used to try to answer
all her letters herself, but now she finds it
impossible. Suppose, for instance, she
gave only five minutes to replying to each
of 100, whieh is less than would be practic
able if she wrote moro than a seuteuoe or
two, that would be .eight hours, and she gets
thirty or f rty letters ami notes daily, so all
her t ime could easily be consumed in writing
and to people who as a rule, are unknown to
“Of course there are some letters ad
dressed to her which she never sees. The
letters written asking money, whether ad
dressed to her or to the President, are never

A GOOD, JUDICIOUS FINANCIER, who goes
slow and sure, looking after his or her own
Interests, will not and cannot, in justice to them
selves, fell to note how much they can save by
purchasing their Clothing, Hats and Furbish
ing Goods of APPEL A HCHAUL, the One-Price
Clothiers, who mark each and every article in
plain figures—no deviation whatever. Their
style of doing the one-price plan, PLAIN FIG
URES, is sufficient guarantee that the goods are
marked as low as ran be legitimately sold for,
as it is a well-known fact that a strictly one
price plan of doing business cannot he success
ful with fancy figures.

do not run the risk of meeting some friend or
acquaintance with the Identical Suit or Overcoat
bought at the same place at different prices.

misrepresent any article, os we give a memoran

to do so. and we assure you, after getting ac
quainted with our style of doing business in gen
