AKRON DAILY DEMOCRAT. TUESDAY DECEMBER 19
COLTS OF CONGRESS.
HEW FACES AND FIGURES IN THE
Hen Who Mow Make Their Debut In
ttia Home of llepreaentatlvea,
Store Than a HnndreA of Them.
. Some Rotable Character!.
WAsnmaTos, Dec. IS. Each new
congress brings now faces to thu
chambers of tho senate and houso of
representatives, tho study of which Is
nno of tho most Interesting and en
grossing occupations of the habitats of
tho galleries. Tho Fifty-sixth con
gress, which Is now getting fairly
down to business, Is no exception to
this rule, and In tho house particularly
there are many new faces. Some of
them are extremely strong nud at
tractive, faces, Indicating that force,
mental vigor and self ussertlvcness
which will make their possessors posi
tive factors In national legislation.
Tho membership of tho house In
cludes 100 brand 'new recruits, who
now make their debut In the balls of
congress. Of this number 57 are Dem
ocrats and 47 are Republicans, with
one Populist and one Independent Sil
In view of the protest against the
seating of' Drlgbam II, Roberts and
the wldo public Interest the caso has
awakened, tho member from TJtab Is
without doubt one of the most notnblo
figures of this congress. Many of tho
other new members are notablo at
first largely by reason of the distinc
tion of the representatives whose shoes
they fill. This sort of prominence Is,
naturally enough, not particularly
gratifying to their self respect, and
they will doubtless strive to win favor
able renown In their own right and on
their own merits.
Among theso new recruits nre th'o
successors of ex-Speaker Thomas It.
Heed nnd tho late Nelson DIngley of
Maine; tho successor of the lato la
mented nnd vcnerablo "Silver Dick"
Bland of Missouri; of Joseph U. Walk
er of Massachusetts, for two congress
es chairman of banking and currency;
of Alexander M. Dockery of Missouri,
of Governor Joseph D. Saycrs of Tex
as, of Jcrc Simpson of Kansas and of
the picturesque and cultured James
llamllton Lewis of Washington. There
aro others who by reason of their own
alios l. alles.
peculiar characteristics or unusual at
tainments attract especial attention
from the galleries and whose future
course will bo watched with Interest
by tho outside world as Information
concerning them Is made public
through tho press. Tho records of past
sessions furnish a pretty accurate In
dication of what tho old members will
do In relation to any given proposition,
but there Is usually more or 1om tpec
ulatlou In tho early days of tho ses
sion ns to Just what the colts will do
until they get thoroughly broken Into
the legislative harness.
The successor of ex-Speaker Reed Is
Amos I,. Allen of Alfred, Me., who
was a classmato of Mr. Heed In their
youth at Bowdoln college. They havo
been lifelong friends. As prlvato sec
retary to tho speaker for several years
back Mr, Allen relieved Mr. Reed of
tho ouerous details of his strictly rep
resentative duties In lool.lsf after tho
arled wants of his constituents, and
in doing this he became so well ne
qtialnted with tho voters of the district
and grow so useful to them that on
Mr. Reed's voluntary retirement Mr.
Allen cosily steppod Into his place.
Tho nuccetsor of tho Into Neleou A.
DIngley, who attained especial pronil
ncneo as chairman of tho ways and
means committee. Is Charles D. Little-
field of Rockland, proprietor uud ed
Itor of a newspaper In that town.
Tho greatest chango In tho member
ship of any delegation Is In that from
Mew York state. In the last congress
New York's contingent embraced 0
Democrats and 23 Republicans. Now
tbero are 18 Democrats and 10 Repub
Warns. Thirteen out of the 10 new
men nre Democrats, chiefly from Now
York and Kings counties. Among the
now Manhattans four nt least aro said
to be rich Jefferson M. Levy, Colonel
jWllllam Astor Chanler, Jacob Ruppert
and Daniel J. Rlordon, the latter be
ing John Murray Mitchell's successor.
Colonel Chanler, from the Fourteenth
'district, Is ono of the youngest and
(wealthiest as well as handsomest of
all the new recruits, ana a lively in
terest centers In his personality In con
sequence. A story Is told Illustrating
how the honors of statesmanship came
to him unsought. Tho district had
been represented for thrco terms by
Lemuel Ely Qulgg, Republican, and
the Democratic leaders wcro anx
lous to pick out a man to de
feat Qulgg. Amos J. Cummlngs, the
newspaper writer nnd Democratic rep
resentative from the Tenth district.
went to Chanler one day and suggest
'id that he become a candidate for
congress. Chanler, a real hero of the
Spanish war, Is nevertheless a quiet
and modest fellow, and he frankly told
Cummlngs the idea wasjbsurd. Final
ly, after much persuasloa, young Chan
ler was Induced to accept thu nomina
tion and was elected. He Is likely to
be heard from before the session Is
over. Another young man from the
state of New York who Is likely to at
tract attention Is Edward D. Vrecland,
from tho Thirty-fourth district, who
succeeds Warren B. Hooker, who serv
ed as chairman of tho committee on
rivers and harbors, Mr, Vrecland
lives on the Seneca Indian reservation
and has made much of a study of the
CAUSE OF DEAFNESS.
Tho Moil Common Cauio Only Recently
It has been stntod on rood medical
authority that nluo-tenths of tho
cases of deafness rtro caused from
sutnrrh or from sore throat trouble.
Tho Uttlo tube which leads to the
ear from the throat is lined with n
sort of velvety structure called muc
ous memoriaie. this memurnno is
simply n continuation of the mucous
membrane llnlnsr tho throat. Wliou
dliome of any sort attacks the muc
ous memurnno of tho throat it is very
liable to extond into the eustachian
tubo nnd up into tho oar.
The history of nearly nil cases of
deafness is like this: a cold is con
tracted and neglected, other colds
aro token, tho throat becomes sore
nnd Inflamed, which Is aggravated
by particles of dust nnd germs from
the air. This condition causes tho
disease to spread into tho tubes that
leads to tho car.
It seems n llttlo far fetched to say
that most oases of deafness are caus
ed from catarrh, but It is certainly
true, and anyone who has had a se
rero cntarrhul'cold must havo notic
ed how tho bearing was nllected
while the cold lasted.
With catarrh sufferers tills Impair
ment of hearing becomes chronic
and grows worse tho longer the ca
tarrh is neglected.
You can cure catarrh and deafness
by the regular use of an oxcelldnt
new preparation onllod Stuart's Ca
tarrh Tablets, composed of antlseptio
remedies which act both on the muc
ous membranes but principally and
most effectually op the blood, elimi
nating the catarrhal poison from tho
People whoso hearing Is defective
may think It a llttlo reinarkublo that
a simple and harmless tablet would
very often remove all traces of deaf
ness, but when it is remembered that
catarrh causes the deafness and that
the catarrh is easily cured by tho
regular use of Stuart's Catarrh Tab
lets there Is no mystery about It.
It you are Biibjeot to nasal catarrh
or cntarrh of throat, bronchial tubes
or catarrh of stomach nnd liver, tho
snfest nnd most eiTectlvo treatment
is tho new catarrh specific, Stuart's

FASHION IS CONSIDERATE.
Easy to Have tiooil I)rcsca at Rea
New Yonir, Dec. 18. It has always
seemed to mo particularly hnid that
young folks could not hao everything
they wanted and, above all, young
girls to whom hccomlngncs3 of diess
and dainty belongings aro bo much of
a necessity. I doubt If there. Is any
longing so agonizing as the young
girl's desire to have the pretty things
pecessary to set off her face and form
to their best advantage and to know
that unkind destiny has placed them
beyond her reach.
It Is easy in theso days, or compara
tively so, to have good dresses at a
low cost, becauso It takes so much
less stuff to make a gown than It did
even a year ngo, and, besides, If one
gets plaid or somo one of tho woolly
surfaced stuffs little or no trimming Is
needed. The solid colors nro raoro re
fined, yet for the young plaid In al
most all of the designs Is nice and
suitable, nnd one can always get an
Incredible amount of wear out of them,
as tbo all wool twills and other all
wool plaids will wash like calico. There
Is a neat and pretty plaid dress shown
In this Illustration, the prevailing tints
nnd colors being In greens, with liiro
and there a line of dull red and a dash
of creamy white. Clan plaids aro al
most entirely relegated to children and
to borders for golf capes.
The golf capo has gone far beyond
the original limit sot for It, and now
nearly half tho womeu and even chil
dren one meets has on ono of tbesa
capes. Most of them have the body
of tbo cape right side out, nnd this Is
of rough stuff between nstrakhnu cloth
nnd Irish frieze In nppcaianco In tolld
color. The back of this material,
which Is very thick and warm, Is
plaid, so that tho ruffle of the cape Is
simply turned wrong side out, Tho
hood Is made In tho same way, and a
llttlo shawl fringe carrying the colors
finishes It. Theso capes are certainly
bright and pretty, though , Intended
strictly for golfing or runabouts.
The Illustration shows three tbjngs,
ono being tho gown, which can bo worn
nt home or abroad; next the postlchc
gulmpo yoke. This Is made of somo
kind of light silk, tucked, or, In fact. It
can bo' trimmed In any vny. Tho pret
ty new openwork silks would bo very
suitable for these yoke gulmpes. The
form of It shows that It should be
made up over a stiff lining. The collar
may be overlaid with lace, or that, too,
may be tucked. It has a baud of bins
velvet one Inch nnd a half wide all
around It and fastens Invisibly In the
back. This Is pretty to wear with auy
The bnt, which Is the object of thfe
fair maiden's earnest adoration, Is an
empire bonnet of silk beaver In a rich

brown velvet and strings of tbc same.
Inside the brim Is a seal velvet rosette
with a gilt ornament. Directly on top
is a mass of velvet wallflowers with
all their rich shades of yellow up to
golden brown, and this Is topped by a
true lover's knot of wired veltet rib

WHAT THE ALLOTMENT OF THEIR

Knrrnaclimenls nf Civilisation,
rinlit. Willi Cattlemen nnd Land
Cnr.cor.Mr, I. T., Dec. 10. The allot
ment of lands Is being tnado to the
various Indian tribes In tho Indian Ter
ritory, and In a fow months thel&tribal
goternmenta will havo ended. Many
of tho Klckapoos have refuser) to be
enumerated In the census and are emi
grating to Mexico, and a number of
tho Kcmlnolos nru also preparing to
leao for Chihuahua, to which place
some of their ancestors migrated at
the conclusion of tho Seminole nor.
They reason that It Is no use to remain
and take their allotments "whllu man
get nil the lands by and by." Tho rea
son for the Klowas leaving Is that it
has been discovered that the treaty
with them Is fraudulentthat the two
Indians who did sign It were drunk at
tho time. They wcro recently tried for
treason and would have been shot only
for the timely substitution of tho Unit
cd States court for their tribal court.
The remaining Klonus will send a del
egation to Washington and ask that
tho white settlers bo ejected and that
their lands remain as communal prop
erty. By this means white settlers may
be kept out of tho nation unlebs tho
Indian authorities cho them a permit
to leaso lands. Dut when thu lands
nro allotted In severalty tho settler
will havo to deal only with tho Indi
vidual Indian, nnd of course In time
tbc Indian would have very little land
The Indlani of somo of tho other
nations are, however, favorablo to al
lotment, ns they can lease all except a
few acres to cattlciTfen and live In
Idleness upon the rent?. Immense
tracts of mineral and grazing lands
are being leased by syndicates, and It
seems that a wao of prosperity will
soon strike this almost unknown sec
tion of the United States. Each man
will bo allotted .ICO acres of land for
every member of his family. He may
rent or sell all cxccptlns GO acres.
When that Is gone, ho is almost a pau
per. Their tribal governments aro
virtually abolished, and under tbo
treaty they will cease altogether In
ten years, when the Indian will no

to bo a citizen, for at present he Is a

from tho "blanket tribes" who dwell
among them. There are about 20 parts
of tribes who aro Incorporated In the
Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Sem
inole and Creek Nations. Uach of these
Ihe nations has a tribal government,
which consists of a council and "house
of warriors," answering to our senate
and houso of representatives. The ex
ecutive power Is osteil In a first and
second chief. By a recent act of con
gress the legislative power Is restrict
ed to local tribal matters and Is a gov
ernment In name only. In a few 3 ears
It will cease entirely, as stated, and
the last of tho aboriginal governments
In tho United States will be swopt

While the government has replaced
tbo Indian schools with a free school
system and whito teachers the Indians
aro not disturbed In their religious ex
ercises. They continue to celebrate
the "harvest festival," or "green corn
dance," but are uo longer permitted to
put witches to death. Tho "blauket
Indians" aro only partly civilized
and still cling to their aborigi
nal modo of dress and undress, ac
cording to tbo season. Tbey do uot
scalp tbo paleface, but they are ex

ally the more civilized come to the
villages to itrado game and skins fur
ammunition, guns, whisky, otc. They
get drunk In tho usual civilized way,
and tho usual frontier town fighting
takes place. The women havo uot yet
