THE MEMBEll FK01I ST. I0DIS.
A Curious Character to be Introduced Into
ihe New Consres.
Correspondence Richmond Dispatch.
There will be some odd specimens in the
next House of Representatives, and people
who happen to meet a few of the new mem
bers will wonder how they ever got to Con
gress. Mr. Niedringhaus, of St. Louis,
who will succeed John J. O'Neill, pres
ent Chairman of the Committee on Labor,
is a manufacturer of kitchenwnre nnd
has a fortune estimated at between $1,000,000
and S2.000.b00. He obtained some valuable
patents and made his money in a compara
tively short period. He doesn't reside in
the district w men ne is to represent, bat mi
big fnctory is in the district and he employs
more than 1,000 men, women find children.
Outside ot business matters in which he is
directly interested, Niedringhaus is a thor
oughly ignorant man. He absolutely knows
nothing of public men and affairs. It is
estimated that the Republican managers in
St. Louis who put him up made him carry
the whole ticket in the district, and they
bled him for "campaign expenses" to the
tune of 575,000. He was being introduced
around the capitol this week, and when pre
sented to a man as well known as Senator
Hissock, of NewtSTork, said: "Glad to meet
you, Jlr. Hiscock. "What State are vou
irora, sir?" On meeting Senator Sherman,
and others equally as prominent be asked
the same question. Mr. Niedringhaus, it is
useless to remark, hasn't made a verv good
impression among his brethren in the Re
