MEMBERS OF CONGRESS. Beaatoi Beaur la arell-to-do. Hia family has been la e< >uifortahlo cir cumstr acaa for geaeratiO-a. Ba haa arrad earafally, thoagh well, and hia posscssions have increnscd inoderate *\y with time. itilliard experts in congresa yield Ihe palm to Senator Mullory, of Flor? ida, whose work with the nie is of the highest order. Only Coiijjressman Cochran. of Mu?souri, and Congress Baan Lauham. of ltxas, are supposed to be in his elass, aiul both coneede the Florida mau's superior skill. The roll call of niiilionaire senators ln the Fifty-eighth congress will atand about as follows: Clark, Han ?a, Depew, l'latt, Kean, Dryden, Ei kins. Bard, Karaaa, 1'erkins, Waa* anore, Proetor, Scott, Quay, Alger, and Addicks. Perhaps about one sen? ator in every six is a real live niiilion? aire. ? Senator Dubois was feeling a bit fcvut of sorts and on the advice of his physician went to Atlantic City for aome sea air. "How did you make Out?" the senator was asked on hia return. "Not very well," Dubois Te jplied. "You see, I went for sea air and every minute of the four days I atayed there was nothing but a land Jbreeze.** r A reporter saw Senator Hoar com? ing out of the white house and said: ?"Can I say that you have been talk Ing with the president on the trust problem?" Mr. Hoar beamed through his spectacles as he replied slowly: *"Let me see. Yes, you could say that." "Then, senator," began the re? porter, but the vencrable Yankee in terrupted: "Yes, you can say that, but it wouldn't be true," aud he *a.-alked away chuckling. The national house of representa tives has concluded that Congressman Bheppard, of Texas, has the most del Icately balanced conscience in the cn tire body. When he started back from his holiday he had through tickets from Washington, but he found that by coming on the route he had selected he would be four hours late for tha opening of con grc-s. This discovery was made -n 6t. Louis. Mr. Sheppard promptly threw away his tieUets and bough: another whieh landed him in Waah* laajtaa just la time. He wondered arhj more aaaaaaaal stat aaaaaa langhcd whep ha told al this experi? ence. The Tixan is only '27 years old, whieh may iro ., long way tow;:rd ac nnamtlaaj for his eat ra aaa ftdalrtj to duty. BY WAY OF VARIETY. Gerniany's tallest soldier is a non BOllimissioiied otlieer six feet cight Inehes la height. A ahala af baaha to ha eoadacted by B et nt ra] insi it ution is to be organized lu San Francisco a> soon as the details can b* completed. Caaada'a tradc iBeraaatd in the fis ?al year to June ha^lMt, $35,188,058, having been in the aggregate $414, 431,Kil, aeeordtag to the department |Df trade aiul eommerce. Many Ccrinan raihvays stat ions have tunnels hy means of which the dif ferent traeks are aafaly reached. It ls now proMose?l to have such tunnels Bt important street erossings in Her lin. In the United States and Canada the telegraph poles are usually spaced 55 yards apart, and on the average the number of rail lengths passed over in 20 seconds givea very nearly the train speed in miles per hour. A novel scheme bns recently been evolved by which a train v\ill not only be lighted by electricity.but the power will be obtained by a rotary fan at taehed to the front end of the loco rootive. Tests havt shown that on an ?rdinary train five cars can be illumi JDated in a night and that thebattery tn the morning will have nearly its tnaximum charge? of electricity. IN SOME OF OUR CITLES. The report of Coroner Dugan. of rhilaitelphia, showed that iu the last year 3,709 deatha were reported and 2,804 inquests held. Mihvaukee's police trials are but few. Only nine policemen were tried on eharges last year out of a force of 2S1. This represents a great im proveinent ha the past ten years, aa there were 42 trials ia 1889.* Kes'uleiits and property holders on Thirteenth street, in Atlanta, Ga., have petitioned the authorities to change its name to Piedmont place, explaining that the name "Thir? teenth" is somewhat in the nature of B stigma because of popular super Btition and is detrimental to their interests. City Engineer Ericson, of Chieago, aays that there is a waste of 7C per cent. of all the water pumped and, his plea for the introduction of many inore water meters having been un heeded, he will be compelled to ask for an addiiional appropriation of $200,000 or more for the city pump ing stations.
