AKRON DAILY DEMOCRAT. TUESDAY DECEMBER 19 COLTS OF CONGRESS. HEW FACES AND FIGURES IN THE LEGISLATIVE HALLS. Hen Who Mow Make Their Debut In ttia Home of llepreaentatlvea, Store Than a HnndreA of Them. . Some Rotable Character!. Bpocial Correspondence. 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 ver! te. 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 0m CAUSE OF DEAFNESS. Tho Moil Common Cauio Only Recently Dlicoverod. 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 system. 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 Catarrh Tablets, sold by all druggists atCOcts. for full sized package. public's relations to the nation's wards. Should any Important phase of the In- WILLIAM ASTQK CnANLKB. dlan question come to the front the voice of the new member from western New York Is likely to bo heard. Ilo Is, by the way, a good-talker. j Among the ne w representatives from Pennsylvania Is a grunclsouofa pres ident In thp person ,of Mr. Rufus K. Polk of Danville, representing tbo.Sov cnteenth district. lie, like James K. Polk, his grandslre, Is a Democrat and succeeds "Farmer" Kulp of Slmmoklu. Another new man Is Mr. James K. roll: Hall of Rldgwny, Ell; county, a bright lawyer, succeeding William O. Arnold. A Democrat and lawyer Is Captain Henry D. Orcen of Reading, from tho Ninth district, elected last month to succeed tho lato well known Daniel Ermontiour, who died suddenly In September, A new Keystono State Republican member Is Mr. Joseph E. Thrppp of Bedford, a thriving business man of fnshlonablo tnstcs, succeeding Joslah D. Hicks of Altoona. Tho Michigan delegation contains four new members, and among these nio a Methodist divine, the Rev. Wash ington Gardner, from tho Third dis trict, a picturesque character, and Mr. Henry C. Smith, from the Adrian dis trict, who Is heralded as a great story teller and adds one more to the num ber ct Smiths from Michigan and In tho houso already, making three Smiths In Michigan's delegation and flvo In tho house. Tho successor from the lata Richard P. Bland's district (the Eighth Mis souri) is Dorsoy W. ShncUeford of Jef ferson City, a lawyer and Judge and shrewd business man. Ho is an owner of lead and zinc mines. Jero Simpson's successor, from the Can Always Find the Best of Proof In (lome Testimony. The following public statement comes from a resident, who can be seen on thq streets, who ran bo inter viewed at his homo, nnd who will bo only too pleased to glvo minute par ticulars to anyono who really suffers from any of 'tlia consequences which Inevitably follow weakened or over excited kidneys. Is not suoh "vldence of more value than a published statement from some citizen of a far.away place?

Long, Simpson's predecessor In tho last congress, so that the two have com to bo called "alternates" from that district. Mr. Long Is a hand some fellow, tall and dark, and a pros perous lawyer. Ono of the most unique nnd Inter esting characters among tho new members from the west Is Francis W. Cushman, representative at large from tho state of Washington, who Suc ceeds James Hamilton Lewis of Seat tle. Mr. Cushman, whose homo is nt Tacomn, Is heralded as a vcrltablo genius and bids fair to beenmu ns pic turesque and Interesting and amlablo a flguro as Lewis was.

Samuel IIubbahd. FASHION IS CONSIDERATE. Easy to Have tiooil I)rcsca at Rea eouuble CoKt. Special Correspondence 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 dress. The bnt, which Is the object of thfe fair maiden's earnest adoration, Is an empire bonnet of silk beaver In a rich tan color. There Is a baud uf seal 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 bon. Just Imnglnc a sweet llttlo face, with brown hair and eyes, under this hat! Colden balr would bo as pretty and carry out the scheme of color Just as well. There Is a queer novelty In mado up velvet gowns. It reminds one a llttlo of the Alaska Indian bedqullts, In that It Is sewed with tiny pearl shirt but tons, llko dots. Some have them scak tered all over the dress; others have them arranged In various patterns nlong tho edges of tunics, etc, Polkn dots a re. seen In all the fabrics now ar riving for spring and next summer Some of them aie worked In silks on woolen surface, and on silks they are ARE YOD SATISFIED. riCTrt Wrrttovr PLATC A SPECIALTY. & M . . iT jrh EX e 1 ar I VaTVaT sLV aaaaw aa bt sa-ai at m And you keep your senses alert nil CII-IImm ent t ttiOc .

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 left 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 looser have a gocrnment and ceases to bo a citizen, for at present he Is a voter. Tbo five civilized nations of the ter ritory arc so called to designate them AS CLD L1XK IXDIAX OHEF. 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 av, ay. , 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 pert with tho bon and arrow and the rllle, and whlto Intruders tako des perato chances In entering these wild nnd thinly settled rcglcns. Occasion 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 masteied tho art of making dresses, and when they have bought several yards of red calico tbey wrap tbo piece around tho body ns a Itomnn toga. Cattlemen are swarming Into the ter ritory, anticipating the coming chango In affairs, and the tro 'des between them and the Indlaus are becoming more serious. Tending tbo substitu tion of the federal ,laws for tribal laws the cattlemen who nro reaping rich hanests on the tribal grazing laods re fuse to pay for the leases and yet nlll not vacate. They hold that as the tribal governments aro virtually extinct there is uo one to pay the money to. "Itus tiers," or cattle thieves, aro worse than tho con hoys, and when theso aro caught lu tho act tbey aro killed on the spot, tainlly tho Indian patrolman reports lu his chief such casualties, but since tbo recent changes In affairs these reports are omitted.
