The visitors the Congressmen's secre
taries have to deal with, says a Wash
ington correspondent, are tho gems of
his curious experience. Some of them
are as well know n in Washington ns the
capitol itself. They comprise every
grade, both sexes, and pretty much all
ages. They are olliee-seckers, beggars,
rolunlary advisers, anxious inquirers,
and peoplo who just look iu for tho fun
of it. Tho men arc easy enough to deal
with. A little attention, a civil or en
couraging reply, and away they go,
contented and tolerably hnimv. But
the women are the terrors.
I remember ono at tho thought of
whom my blood runs cold, even now.
She was a gaunt, brawny female, who
had been a lobbyist and correspondent
of various obscure western papers. She
had once given my t hief a puff in one
of her letters, and on the strength of
that was never done demanding favors.
First she wanted a treasury clorkship
for herself. Then a doorkeeper's post
for a nophew. Another nephew she
wanted made marshal of the District of
Columbia, ono of tho best of tho minor
appointments under tho Government.
She didn't get any of these, but she got
considerable money. After worrying
my chief until ho would have nothing
further to do with her, she fell foul of
his family, and turned up every week to
demand Mrs. 's subscription to some
charitable scheme which never existed,
but which the good natured lady never
failod to respond to with five or ten dol
lars, which the fraud coolly pocketed.
But one of the worst frauds the Con-
f pressmen are persecuted by, is the al
eged newspaper correspondent. Tho
spawn of these which springs up in
Washington every session is incredible.
Tho bulk of them aro women, and such
women! They have cards, represent
ing; them to be tho correspondents of
nnlicard of journals, ami, on these
and their cheek, they depend for their
living. They either call to interview
a victim, and boldly strike him
money, or they write half a doze
dalous untruths w hich they brjj
copy of, to sco if "he has-
tionsto make." The e . 4l t nn . . ,
