Something About the Bright Men Who Occupy It ghe Washington Correspondent* of Orest Kcffspspsr* Matt Be Thorough Oen tlciiw.i or They Cannot Hold Their Toslttons. Special Washington Letter. Tlie successful newspaper corre spondent at the national capital must I*, a gentleman. He must mingle with men who represent tens of thousands of citizens; and with senators who are selected by tho legislatures of sovereign states. These men nre regarded as the best men In their several districts mid states; for the people have elected them and set upon them the seal of their approval. They nre gentlemen, cul tured, refined, and scholarly. Of course there are exceptions, but Hie rule pre vails. The newspaper correspondents who meet with them daily must be gen \ tlumen, and they must not be inferior to them if they would command success. There was a time when stotesmen could say, and did say, concerning any publication which did not please them, that "it is a newspaper He.” They were *n much bigger and greater than the correspondents that they could assume lordly airs ami with a wave of the hand dispose of a correspondent who Oared to criticise them. Anew era was be gun 15 years ago when Don I‘iatt was the brilliant editor of the Sunday Cap ital here. He managed his paper upon Hie assumption that a ntutcninn is a public servant, amenable to criticism, awl subject to limitations of power. Of course he met with violent opposi tion in tlic pursuance of (hut policy; but he owned his paper nnd was a very independent man. He made enemies. Pttiss OALLBEY OF TUB HOUSE OF RKIMIESENTATIVES. All men of t hat stump must excite nnl nioHlttcH; Ho became bitter. He de generated Into n iconoclast of the moKt Virulent type. He acquired jtopularity only with his intimate nssuointeH; with men who knew his tender heart nml virile brain. Hut he established mi era. Other Independent men have followed him, and there is no longer any question of tb per men and statesmen. The ideal correspondent is a gentle man who represents a district or a state In as full and complete a sense as does a member of congress. Ho has educa tion, experience, polish, understands legislation, knows parliamentary law ami precedents, is familiar with the Working* of congressional committees, ami knows public men and affairs os "ell ns the best of the statesmen. His newspaper looks to him for faithful, ac curate, loyal service, just os the people look for just such service from their congressmen. He must be worthy of his responsible position, or be will lose it. ihe statesmen must make a history, 1 lie correspondent must accurately portray it. Side by side the scribe and the legislator labor for the welfare and enlightenment of the people. The con gressmen receive si,ooo per annum for their services. The successful ond worthy correspondents receive approx imate compensation from their papers. J he brain of the one is as good ns the brain of the other. In education and re quirements they are on u parity. The 3-lth congress has assembled. The gentlemen upon the door of the senate nml of the house have multiform duties of importance which the people expect to be attended to with skill and patri otism. The gentlemen in the press gal leries will be expected to faithfully por tray the work of the statesmen. The people will hold their public servants to strict accountability for their prom ises and performances, They must not be misrepresented by the correspond ents, and they will not be. Their best friends are in the press galleries. They have only to he true to themselves and prove themselves worthy of the trusts "hieh have been confided to them. It will be remembered that not quite two years ago certain correspondents published stories indicating that mem bers of the United States senate were suspected of having been bribed by the great sugar trust while a tariff bill was pending. Immediately a resolution "as offered for an investigation of the charges, and the newspaper men were regarded ns being In contempt of the senate. The writers were called be fore a dignified committee and refused 'o divulge the sources of their informa bon. Thereupon they were warranted to appear before a locai court, but noth ing came of it. The gentlemen were r jffht in refusing to give the names of their informants, and every senator re jected them for their loyalty to their friends. Many a state secret is con fided to gentlemen of the press, solely for their individual information, in or der that they may have inside facts to Use several wdeks or months later on, "'hen such knowledge may prove of tneat value. The journalist who would betray his senatorial friend would be an anathema on the floor of the senate and also among his confreres of the gal leries. It is a part of the unwritten con stitution of the profession that secrets wo obtained shall be held inviolable, of the press gallery representatives might be misleading without a wurd of ex. planation. The picture shows the press pnllery pretty well filled. | t B ' llow , th?, P ? t,lCe 0t m " ny rc l-orters nt a heß n siting .1,-bate is being umled on between two congressmen tpon such occasions the scuts In iho fpillery are well filled; but ordinarily they are empty. The correspondents never get news In the galleries except upon startling occasions. They usual ly get their best Information In the senate and house restaurants, at the homes of the statesmen, or in the pri vacy of committee rooms. Very little writing is done In the galleries, al though everyone of the rdepresentn t ves of lending is pro vided with pen. Ink, pencil, stationary, and messengers to carry their many’ script to the telegraph offices In the rear. There are press lobbies back of the galleries, where running accounts of daily proceedings are written with agile fingers, or dictated to stem ographers who click the keys of type writers, while the confused din of tel ( graphic work merrily makes conglom erate clatter showing that business is Is lng carried on from that point with the entire continent. On one occasion, needing the name of a circuit judge who had been ap(K>inted from Missouri by the president, I asked the telegraph operator whose wire ran from here to St. Lou la to Inquire of the Glolie-Democrnt the name of the man. A few strokes of the key were made, and the iqiernlor sold: "Amos M. Thayer.” Inside of two minutes. I had sent an inquiry half ucrosa the con tinent and received an answer which was necessary to the completion of an article Which was being prepared in the cnpltol building at Washington. That Ws quick work. Wasn’t it? The special correspondent nt Wash- ington during the/present important session of congress? will be a sort of free lance. not be circum scribed by iroi/clad orders from the home ofllcc. will be intrusted to accurately litfui himself concerning nil matters of importance to the renders of the paper which lie > renm^j n fa--l f .. will write stories of g filers • Interest and —H lu rn: or, if anything of unusual Interest spires, he will telegraph thousands of words regardless of the expense of telegraph tolls. He must use good judgment, be economical or lavish ac-, cording to circumstances, and he must decide nod net an promptly ns n gen eral upon the field of buttle. His re sponsibility is great, and he realizes that fact all the time. He has u roving commission, but he must never become an Apache nor a guerilla. The new mem tiers of congress usual ly refer to the correspondents us “re isirters'’ for the newspapers which tlvey represent. The average corres ismdent does not like that designa tion. Importers are usually regarded ns local writers who work under the direction of their city editors, while the eorres|ioudents are generally men who have gone a notch or two higher than the position of city editor. It is a pro fessional distinction, of which states men know nothing, until they com mence to learn the ways and whims of this new class of citizens, composed us it is of men of a distinct class, with whom the new congressmen have never lie fore mingled. Inasmuch as their intercourse is usually pleasant and mu tually agreeable, they soon learn these distinctions. Journalism is to-day a profession, ns distinct and ns positive as theology, medicine or law. It is one of the learned professions, and It has grada tions from the young man who “pol ishes up the handle of the big front door” to the editor in chief or pro prietor and business manager. It may lie truly said that no mau who would bo incompetent to till the position of city editor or managing editor should bo adjudged competent to represent n prosperous newspaper ns Its Washing ton correspondent.

Uarnum, a J., the Jxplorcr missionary, is an enthusiast Jonoerning Alaska and her resources. Tl cost us 7,:i00,000 iu gold,” ho says, "and we have already taken out of it 184,000,000 in hard money. If I were Glowed by my superiors I would write mj write every day about this rich ?mplrc until the American people bo ron to appreciate the treasures that vre slipping from their grasp. The English know this country much bet ter than wo do, end ore Intriguing all the time, cither to oust the Ameri cans or circumscribe their territories. Vho Americans claim that the bound* try Hue meanders along the const to the mainland. The English contend that tlie line follows the outer const Hue and that the numerous fiords, bays and inlets cut no figure. The head of Portland canal is stated ns the sxtremo southern limit of the Ameri can possessions, but the English have readily overcome this difficulty by lo cating a Portland cnnnl far to the north, so as to cut out nil these har bors and the islands forming them. The result of this would be to throw the American boundary nearly ono hundred miles to the west and take into IlritUh territory the most valuable! possessions in the strlpsoulli of Mount Kl. Ellas. For instance, Juneau, the outfitting point for the mines, and (Racier bay would become English, and instead of the boundary being over one hundred miles cast of Sitka it would be only between twenty-five and thirty. "If litis territory hud no other value than (Racier bay any country might bo proud of its possession and strive to retain it Hut this country has nutnld wealth of cool, precious minerals and timber. The English know tills, and have Copt. Consldinc and twenty picked men to stand guard at tho line of Iho disputed territory around the gold fields. "Forty-Mile creek Is the scene of most of the present excitement Al though sixty days arc open for wash ing the gold, the miners sink a shaft down to the pay dirt, In Iho glacial drift, and, by keeping small (ires burn ing against it, are able to get out a foot or to every day. This they pile on tho dump, and when the water comes down in tho short spell of tho open weather they sluice out the gold. The dirt is rich enough to warrant tho risk of losing a whole year’s work of such a terribly laborious character. "No one who goes to Forty-Mile creek can plead ignorance of the boundary line. Bam Patch, boss of boundary bar, takes care of that. Eight on his claim is tho boundary monu ment, and no one goes up or down the river that ho does not inform of its existence. Yon cannot get away from it, us ho takes you right up to It, and, with a satisfied ’there It is,’lets yon go. America has no more loya* son limn Bum Patch, the name ho goua by in that bleak region. "The gold fields proper, as now known, are about eight miles inside the lino, so you see America has good reason to look out for her interests. There is one thing certain, no ono has gone through this territory without being shown the boundary monument, and ho knows hy miles of weary travel tho distance it is from the gold fluids." —St. Louis Globe-Democrat. DIGGING FOR GOLD. An Old Min VTlio 1 1 hr llrm Halving In th Mountain* for Fifty Vnur*. An old man entered a leading hard warn, store in Washington yesterday and bought some blasting powder. His white hair hung low upon his shoulders, his beard dropped far down upon his breast lie looked like n WsfUiWe Hip Vim Winkle just awak ened from his slnnber* It is not often that he comes to town, and when he does he leives as soon ns hit supplies are purchased. Up in tho mountains the old man has a cabin where lie lias lived alone for many years, raising barely enough corn on the rocky land ho owns to sustain Ills existence. For half a century he has been digging for gold, and from tima to time enough has been found in a little stream near his cabin to stimu late his search. But there has never been sufficient to pay for opening up a tunnel and the old man has been digging one for 50 years. Ho works alone, for he is afraid to confide his secret to any man. From morning un til night he digs, and when rock is readied that has to bo blasted lie buys ail the powder that tho money he can raise will pay for, and when that is gone must wait until another crop can be raised to procure anew supply. Tho old prospector will not live to make many more trips to Washington, and it will probably never be known whether tho washings of free gold he has secured from the stream came from a vein in the mountain where ho has vainly spent his life or not.—Wash ington Star. ORIGIN OF THE HUMAN RACE, Some Hcienfclitft Hold the Polar Keatons Wore Once lohnblted. Believers In the Laplace theory of the origin of the sun and the planets are of the opinion that the original stock of the human race first came into existence at the poles of the earth and gradually moved out toward the equa tor. All believers in the nebular hy pothesis are fast conforming their Ideas to the belief that this earth was once a red-hot ball of fire, and that the hu man race came into existence as soon as a portion of the globe had cooled sufficiently to admit of their living upon it The portion most likely to cool first was the poles, and the evi dence deduced from this speculation is that upon which is founded the idea of the polar oriirin of the human family. On the above theory is explained the mysterious finding of the remains of tropical birds, bessts and plants far up in the polar regions. If it la really) true that the poles were the first hnb-| liable spots on the earth's surface, and that they were rendered so by the globe first cooling at the spots least affected by sunshine, it must be true also that the polar regions are gradu ally encroaching upon the temperate and torrid zones.

The latter was Uenry Mnler, who resides with his parents on Aqueduct Street, New ark, N. J,. and who hands out mcdlcino over the counter of Dr. Andrew P.
