WASHINGTON LETTER. Washington, D. C, Oct.21 1887. Congress will be urged this winter to pass some measure looking to the cor rection of the present system of heating railroad cars. It undoubtedly has the power to legislate Upon this subject, and the experience especially of thethe past year has fully demonstrated that the stove must go, and some other means of heating be devised that will insure greater safety to the traveling public. The Commissioner of the General Land Office is remarkably modest in his demands, considering that he is an important factor in a ''Reform" ad ministration. In his estimates for the next fiscal year he asks for 175 addi tional clerks and an incie ise in the ap propriation for his Buieau over that of last year, of nearly ODe million of dol lars. If all Buieau officers were like Sparks, and their requests should be granted by Congress, there would be no occasion to worry about the surplus in the Treasury. Figures at the Treasury show that during last month we exported flour to the value of $5,351,812, and wheat to the of $4,701,860. This year the September exportation ot wheat has off over one half, and the expor tation of flour has increased almost two _,, thirds over the corresponding month of ^ent^Tp. m^ last year Indianapolis was the first city visited by the President in his 'swing around.' It held its municipal election last week and went Republican by a largely in creased majority. A fair indication of what is coming. The rumor that an attempt was made to wreck the Presidential train near Memphis, may have some foundation, but it is regarded here almost univer sally as a slim attempt to produce scen ic effect on the last act of an exceeding ly stupid play. During the past few days several Congressman have taken up their abode among us, and many old familiar faces are now recognized on the Avenue. I met Congress nan Barnes of Georgia, yesterday, who is the heavy wheight of theHouse, 325 pounds strong, but albeit a good jovial fellow. He is a strong partisan democrat, and pretends to think with a nervous twitching about the eye, that Cleveland is doing "pretty well." Randall spent a day here last week on'his return from Atlanta, and exhib ited numerous letters of endorsement from various sections in the South, and invitations to visit them, which show pretty clearly that it will be hard work for Carlisle and Mills to read him out of the party One of the proudest men in Washing ton to-day is Commissioner Oberly, He has"downed" the Virginia and Ohio Clubs in tneir rebellion on CivilServicc, is sustained by his two colleagues, and has the the official endorsement of thecorrect New York Mugwump Reform associ ciation. What greater honor can one man achieve? True it don't reduce the price of bread stuffs, or relieve any burdens, but then Oberly is satisfied and correspondingly proud, and he is a part of the administration that i9 seeking praise. A project is on foot to have the next "National Democratic Convention held eve and judging from the energy dis mayed by the projectors and the favor tih which the suggestion is received Washington may boast of being the meeting place selected. It is free from all local preferences and sectional in terests and having a pleasant tempara ture at that season of the year and pre senting many other attractions, it would seem to be a place at which all dele gates and visitors would be most de lighted to spend a brief sojourn in. Come one and all and a National recep tion will be tendered irrespective of poli tics. The city has been alive the pastv/eek with visitors. The Laundrymen's con vention was largely attended, and some of the many Chinese laundrymen per manently located here had the courage to attend some of the meetings and seemed to be much interested in thethe many laundry appliances on exhibition in the hall rented for that purpose. None however deemed it safe to make application for membership, and all ex pressed much satifaction with the fail ure of the proposition to require Laund ry Journals not to insert advertisements of concerns that sell laundry appliances to Chinese. John Chinaman is pro gressive at the Capital and feels secure in the enjo} ment of his freedom under the shadow of the Goddess of Liberty that looks down from the dizzy height of the Dome of the Capitol. The civil Service Commissioner^ are,. kept busy at present in investigating cases of favoritism and disregard of law in the making ofappointments through out the Country by prominent Govern ment officials. Now that the time for the National Contest is coming near to hand the officials cannot so well as in past withstand the demands for the appointment of good sound democrats to office. The Commission however is doing its duty faithfully and well and is prompt in applying the remedy when ever it finds the complaint well found ed. The Commissioners have no sine cure in the offices, and they are round ly abused by friend and foe. The labor organizations are all aroused to a state of intense feeling against one of our Judges who the past week held a number of one of the as semblies engaged in boycotting, guilty of conspiracy. An appeal has been taken to a higher Court and efforts are on foot to hold a public meeting to cen sure the action of the Court. If the de cision stands there will be no boycotts in the District whether the organiza tions have the right on their side or not. The one tried was a test case and so far is against the action of the labor organizations in the District.

How Volapuk Sounds. Much as I havp heard and read about Volapuk, the new language which M. Scble\ er hopes to make universal, I never heard it talked until last week, when among the guests at the hospit able table ef a well known medical man of literary tastes, there were two guests who had actually sat the feet of tne in ventor of Volapuk, so to speak, and started that tongue under his personal direction. To oblige the rest of us, these two visitorsone was a Russian and the other a cosmopolitanengaged in a conversation in Volapuk for our edification. I would rather not write down in black and white my impression of what I heard. One of the guests suggested that Volapuk sounded like double Dutch spoken by a Choctaw In dian suffering from a chronic croup, while another suggested it was more a Welchman trying to cough in modern Greek but it must not be supposed that I endorse their evidently exaggerated statements. Seriously however, I do not think that Volapuk sounded like the universal language of the future, though I must say that many of its words seem taken from roots "common to our own and the German lan^ua^e.

Too frequently, alas, he has an exellent appetite tor liqaids but none for solids of a morning. His tongue will hardly bear inspection at any time if it is not white and furred, it is rough, at all events. The digestive system is wholly out of order and Diarrhoea or Constipation may be a svmptom or the two may al ternate. There are often Hemorrhoids or even loss of blood. There may be giddiness and often headache and acidi ty or flatulence and tenderness in the pit of the stomach.
