Old Members Not on the Llt, and Who Certainly Will Be Missed Uncertainty ef Political Greatness Names of Con- ISprcUl Correspondence. -ASIIIXGTOX, Dec. 5. The now congress camo to gether Unlay. Long before 10 o'clivk the galleries were filled, nml nn hour later tho threo acres of space which forms tho site of tiie Capitol buiMiujr was hum- tniag lite a bee hire. The basement was Ailed with strangers, and the restaurants were doing a thriving business. The second floor had many of the aspects of a Parisian boulevard. Pretty women and great men Jostled each other in the corridors, and big crowd hung about the doors of the gallerie of the bouse ami senate. The wooden men who act as doorkeepers and messengers camo out, as usual on such days, in all their glory. Tbey domineered over the crowd. They shoved bark this woman, and pushed that man away. They put on three times as many airs as the senators themselves and their dignity far surpassed that of the supremo Judges on the bench. The galleries inside looked like so many flower gardens, and tho prince of Babylon would have been glad to hare bad such hanging bouquets ou the out side of bis famous palace. The colored citi asn was out in all his glory, and, phoenix like, the Capitol arose in n night from tho doll asbes of the recess into the liveliest activity of one of tho liveliest sessions in our history. Speaker Carlisle called the houc to order, and be mokes a most satisfactory presiding officer. His contest with Thoelie amounted to Bothing, and he is to be the leader of the Democratic house this year, as be was last Many new fares were seen in the house to day, and many wens the reminders of the political heads that have been cut off. About 40 per.oent.of the last congress is absent and 130 members have lieen retired. Frank Hisoock's majestic form, tightly buttoned in its black Prince Albert coat, is seen no more among the Itepublieans, and his dark, hand some face wil; now be reserved for the sena torial gallery gasers. Daniel, of Virginia, with bis crutch and his refined features, has also gone up higher; and good, kind hearted, interstate commerce Reagan will hereafter Wear out the cushions of the senate instead Of the hard chairs of the house. One of the Bxrt notable absences is that of John T. Walt, of Connecticut, who was the oldest member of the but house, and who had a face strikingly like that of Gen. Ceorgo Washington. Then, Ranney, of Massachusetts, the noted lawyer member, who conducted the Pan Electric telephone investigation, has gone back to bis law practice in Massachusetts, where be will make el00,000 a year; and as for Rice, of Massachusetts, and Green, of New Jersey, they too are among tho absent. We will not have Andrew G. Curtin in this congress; and the dark, beautiful facoof Ban tcfevre, of Ohio, will bo admired in other quarters. Judge Geddes, another noted Ohio member, will not be present; and Hen nepin Murphy, whose mission in life was to put through the Hennepin canal, will not be here. Many of the southern members arc not present, and the most niissed man is Ran dolph Tucker, whose kind manner and ster ling worth will be rememlxTed long after he Is pot under the sod. He will practice law both in Washington and in Virginia, and will be a richer man out of cougress than In it The new members feel lost, and everything tbey see looks big to them. Tho chestnut atorj of Senator Nesbitt, of Oregon, is going the rounds among them, and tliey are recall snf bow Nesbitt said when he first came to eonsjress: "I was surprised at the ability of the men I met, and as I took ray scat among tho statesmen I looked around on that magnifi cent body of men and wondered how in tho b 11 I ever got there among them. About two weeks later, when the strangeness had worn off, I again looked around on that mag nificent body of men and I again ttomlered; but, this time, it was how in the h U the other fellows got there'" Congressmen are, in fact, very much like other men, and the average of human great ness is not very much higher than Gel's most ordinary creation. It is the same in tellectually as it is physically. No one man is twice as tall as any other ordinary man, and none of these congressmen know much taore than the average reader of t his article. Tbey strut around here in their store clothes and lead me to wonder- 'Sow, in the name of nil tho gods nt once, npon what meat do these our Caars feed, that tbey are grown so great f Many of them forget that they were all raw red babies once, and they will certainly all bo corpses by and liv Their jiolitieal lives will be shorter tliau their pliy-ical ones, and fully one-third of each congress is not returned. You may walk aliout Washington today, and you will meet on every corner a man who, a year or so ago, carried his head high in political life, but who now has no political bead to sjicak of. You may see Secretary of twang rma inu ocgun to voico tortti Reed's big brain. Reel is Kijd t look liko' ShaLesicare, und ho lias u mind almost as broad R that of tto jioet in its idea of life and statesmanship. He can tell a good story, make a good speech, and, if he cIicmms, oil his tongue with the j vitriol anointment of sarcastic repartee. Joe Cannon, of Illinois, with his vehement gestures, his old slouch liat and his funny stories, is liack again, ami Sam Randall's wonderful eyo lias already caught that of every new congressman w ho can servo him. Congressman Springer sat in his scat today j n ith a smile on his statesman like face, a rose ! in his buttonhole, and a word of oleaginous welcome for his old friends, and Sam Cox boblied about like n jumping jack run by electricity, as Imj trio! to shake hands with i all his friends nt once and tell a new story or an old joko to every one of tlicm. I Martin Foran, the dark, handsome faced congressman from Cleveland, w ho is noted as a representative of the laboring interest, is back, with his dark hair shming like oiled eliony and his Mack eyes sparkling liko dia monds. John J. O'Neill, his hated rival in tho labor field, does not smile nt him as ho passes by, nnd both have bills which will please Mr. I'owderly and, in all probability, ilisplcaso Mr. Jay GouliL A curious thing about this congress is tho numlier of imecr nanus it has in it There is a White, a Ilrown and n Gray, nnd a Bland, of Missouri, feels sad as ho looks Gay, of Louisiana, in the face. One memlier is Long and another is ilule, while another is Wise in name, nnd perhaps in nature, and Mr. Crisp ought certainly to talk incisively. Wo liavo a I teed, a Post and a Cannon, nnd tho last of these is evidently run by ierpetuol motion. Mar land gives tho house a Rusk, and from Missouri and Kentucky coino two Stones.

Non he is n treasury clerk, and bis four in band has degenerated into a hackney cab or a street cor. Horatio King, Buchan an's postmatter general, lives a quiet life here, respected but retired. Ex-Postmasters General Truer and CYeswcll have left olili cal life and are delving fortho dollars. Thero an mora ups and downs in tho world of politics than in the world of money making, and tne only citrercnrets that m iliticshs that rises is sure to fall before he dies, where as the rich man may carry his gold to his coffin and put his bones under a palatial mausoleum. In the meantime the fickle world goes on, and, like the French populace, its cry is "Lo roi est tnortl Vivo lo roiP Tho world wants to know the ups, ami it don't care a cent for the downs. Tlie new congress is an eminently respectable body of men, and many of the new faces indicate tho existence of decided brains behind them. Tlio man who succeeds Bill Morrison promises to keep Illinois liefore the country, and many of tho best of the old members are returned. John D. ling's classic face is seen once more, and his gentle, mild voice is beard chatting with Judge E. 11.

New York Sun. 2,000 AMERICAN VESSELS ON TH8 GREAT LAKES. 3,000 Ton Steamers Afloat Sail Vessels Fast tilvlnir Way to Steam Canadian Shipping Disappearing from the Lakes. American Tonnafe In Wfx Times.. Special Correspondence.) Bcffalo. N. Y., Dec, . II i shipping season of 1S.S7, now aliout coming to a eloso on the great lakes, has leen most pros perous. Though nearly equaled in lb0,w liich w as also a season of high freights and heavy shipments, tho showing is really unprecedented, fmm tho fact that tho larg increase in tonnage since that time has mode the actual profits far greater than over before. The lako trade is a peculiar one, and neccs tarily much more fluctuating than rail OT ocean business. With he period of dull trade that began in lssi, which was brought tbout by stagnation in tbo iron trade, aided by a light foreign demand for grain, the lake fleet added very few vessels to its list; but alwut tho middle of Juno last year there sprang up a sudden nnd somewhat unex jiected demand for ore carriers; new mines rapidly developed at Ashland and Two Har bors at the farther end of Lake Superior, thus necessitating long trips, and since that time there has been a steady demand for ore vessels. This is now more pronounced than that for wheat, coal or lumber carriers, though it is usually cxjiected to drop off some weeks liefore the coal or wheat trade, eqiecially as tho ore usually freezes solid in tho pockets licforo the lakes freeze over. Tho lako trade is comparatively in its in fancy, yet it has assumed of late years some thing liko giant proportions. As lately as 1ST0 the tonnage passing through the Sault canal to and from Lake Superior was insig nificant, reaching but 500,000 tons in 1(0U, while in 1SN) it had grown to more than nine times that amount, actually exceeding tho famous Suez canal in tonnage or freight transmitted. Tho Lake Sirperior region was too much of a wilderness for tho heavy de mand for grain in lSiO-70 to reach it, but Lake Michigan profited by the water route to Buffalo and via the Erie canal to New York as far as the development of the west; crn wheat and corn region at that time made it possible. The vessels of those days were the canal schooners, as they are now slight ingly called, from their ability to navigate tho old Welland canal into Lake Ontario, and it took a lake full of them to do any amount of business. Tho change from tbosu days to tbo present can perhajis lie no better shown than by reference to the fact that wheat freights were twenty-fivecentsa bushel from Chicago to Buffalo in war time, and a citizen of Buf falo remembers seeing just off the city sixty three schooners in a single morning. They carried from 5,000 to 7,000 bushels each, and when ono season a schooner arrived with 10,- 000 bushels of oats, a Buffalo editor filled a I column of his aper trying to show that car goes of such prodigious size could never bo made to pay 1 Today tbo canal schooner of even 30,000 or 30,000 bushel capacity is voted of no account, and more than one vessel has reached Buffalo this season with cargoes of 100,000 bushels. In ISIS, five years after Perry's fleet of sail boats had "hurled" tho British, with another fleet of sailboats, off Lake Erie, the fleet of the great lakes flying the American flag numbered fifty craft, yet tho combined ton nage of them all has mora than once been ex ceeded this year by a single craft built at Buffalo, Cleveland or iu the shipyards of De troit river or Saginaw bay. Tho evolution of tho lake vessel of today has been steady and regular. It was at first a single masted sail craft of less than 100 tons, cajiable of navigating creeks and enter ing every ajwlogy of a harbor on the lakes. It was small enough, too, to be poled or dragged by oxen up the inlets in the absence of anything answering more directly to tho present steam tug. Tho next step was tho larger square rigged craft, which was not superseded till several years of experiment in steam hod followed tho launching of tho Walk-in-the-Water at Buffalo, in 1S3L Then a season of the clumsy side wheel steamer alongside the sailing craft, then the discovery, early in tho forties, of the screw propeller and its superior adaptability to narrow and frozen jwssages. Then came a new idea; tho steamer took undisputed lead over sail croft, the side wheeler nearly disappeared and the propeller took tho schooner or barge in tow, and long lines of from two to eight vessels were seen passing up and down tho lakes in tow of a single steamer. This style is now so popular that a schooner with topmasts is already be coming a rarity. The schooner's tow line is wind and nautical lore, sufficient in itself so long as it holds together. Since towing be came tho rule several changes have taken place in steam craft Tho "river tug" of about 100 tons, but carrying no cargo, was for awhilo the favorite. The name was from tho fact that these tugs were used mainly to tow schooners through Detroit and St Clair rivers. Later on it became apparent that the towing vessel should bo Large enough to carry cargo as well as pull a consort, to for several years no river tugs have been built The original practienoH. men, (, lite nip hiIMium; crazois tMuml ticre.twanover snpplv sooner or later.

The Canadian lake marine is every ear Imi-oiu-ingless. Only one or two vcs.-sds were built this year, und thio for imwnger or way trade only, ("anail.i is shut out of so many ports tliat she is entirely li-mdicnppul.

Of this number in which har lor tugs are included, but uo vt-ssels used for pleasure rather more tlian half carry steam, and the roHirtioit of steam essels is con stantly increasing, less than half a dozen sail veessels having Nvn built this season. Tho canal schooners are disappearing, never to return, and it is safe to predict that iu live years there will lie scarcely a sail vessel left on tho lakes that is not towing, and they will nearly all ha e leen driven into tholumlier trade. This trade is now tho only considera ble one that has shown no larticular change of late. Theold fashioned small steam luirge, with her towof about four Itarg- or schoon ers that havo been adjudged no longer fit for grain, is just as she was half a dozen vears ago. This is largely from tho fact that tho Niagara river is not navigable for heavy draught vessels to Tonawanda, tho principal lumber port on the lower lakes. The Chicago lumlier fleet of small "hookers" nre still less valuable and they, too, are not lieing re placed by new craft What the future lum ber carrier is to bo is uot yet indicnteiL A sad feature of the trade is gathered from tho following item, compiled early iu No vember: asJsfrJPgsVVlJfi ' VSaBsisBSSBBSSBSSBSSBSSBas CLEAT LAKES AXD TRIBUTARY TERKTTOBT. steam barge, carrying but about 10,000 bush els, and when unloaded standing almost en tirely on her stern, from the weight of her machinery, which was placed far aft, is al ready disappearing, and in its place has como the new steam largo of 2,000 tons, that car ries as much w hen towing a consort s other wise. The single masted, double decked pro peller, with side gangways for pocking freight, is an outgrowth of the old side wheel passenger craft, which gave way on ono side to the railroads that stole its iwocngers and on the other to tho prspelicr that proved more manageable. Now within the post two years comes the double dicker steamship de veloped from engrafting an ocean model on the combined ideas of tho new steam buoys and the one masted profiler. The steamship Susquehanna of tho Anchor line, built lost year in Buffalo, is the only completed vessel of this new class, though the Union Dry Dock company has aliout completed a second, the Onego, ami lias a third, the Chemung, under way. These vessels have crint profiling power, three or four spars, si le gangways as well as hatches, anil are in fa-.! huilt with the hope of combining every feature known tobn of advantage to largo craft. They can trade only between largo ports, but will mako money on wuat nt one cent a bushel from Chicago to Buffalo w hen nothing cLso could live. In this connection, what might otherwise properly come further on in this article, should be mentioned n new difficulty that promises to arise in tho lako traffic Tho largo i ml craft that has ln built mainly on the strength of the success of the Onokn of 3,0(0 tons caiwcity, which camo out in 1682, it going to create havoc in lake freight hereafter. Tbo appearance of a dozen of theso in a day, as is quite likely to occur every week or two, will break down tho grain rate in Chicago or Dnluth, or the coal rote in Buffalo or Cleveland, unless these commodi ties are token by contract made early in tha season, as in the case of ore. which is hardlv AKK CRAFT. "Tho month of Octolier shows an aggre gate of 2S.1 accidents and disasters on all tho lakes, 117 more tlian in Septemler this year, and 115 more tlian in Octolier last year.

Totil l.s for tho month, $1,0W, 09, an increase o er September of $325,309. Reckoning 40 lives lost with tho steamer Vernon, 132 persons w cro drowned from ves sels in October on the great lakes." The foundering of the propeller Vernon off Manitowoc, Wis., in the storm of Oct 29 is the most serious accident of the year so for. Novemlier was less disastrous than was tho mouth preceding it, in the aggregate. The loss of tho profiler Osceola off Port Hope, Lake Huron, and the burning on Nov. 17 of tho Anchor line propeller Arizona at Marquette were among the serious disasters of the mouth. Tho whole is quite too large to warrant any attempt at particular- izing. If there is any new fer.turo of the lake trade tnnt'is interesting outside of the strict commercial line, it is the apparent revival of the passenger traffic that went out with tho advent of tho railways. Already steamers from Cleveland, Detroit and Chicago arc doing a thriving jiasscugpr business duruig the warm months, nnd last year for the first timo tho Buffalo iia.sscngcr lines felt the movement As the increase of wealth adds annually to the leisurely claw these trips tc the northwest or to jmints of interest on the way are likely to steadily increase.

Ve, many years apo, established a special lepartmtnt for the treatment of these diseases, umler the management of some of the most skillful physicians and surgeons on our Staff. In order that all who apply to us might rrcen e all the adv antagts of a full Council of the most cxpenenced sisxialists. We offer no apology for devotinjr so much attention to this neglected class or discasts, believing no condition of humanity is too wren mil to merit the syrojsithy and best services of the noble profession to which wc belong. Many who sufftr from these terrible diseases contract them innocently. Why any medical man. Inti nt on doing good and alleviating suffering. should shun such east-s. we cannot Imagine. Why nny one should consider it otherwise than most honorable to cure the worst .cases of these die.s, we cannot understand : and yet of all the other maladies w hich afflict mankind there is prolmbly none about which physicians In general practks? know so little. We shall, therefore, continue, as heretofore, to treat with our best consideration, sy input by. and skill, all applicants who are suf fering; from any of these delicate diseases.
