WASHIXOTO.V , 'Jan. 15. [ Special Corro spondcnco of IHK HER. I I called last night on M. .Alexander AlcConnol , the now senator from Idaho. IIo Is a stocky , broad-sboul- ilcrcd , full-chested man of nbout forty-five. Ilo hoshnlr andbcnrd much Ilka tbosoof OnrflclJ , aniHhcro Is n look nbout Ills fair fii-tf that reminds mo of the martyred prcsl- dsit Ho Is Hunt nnd western inhlaman- nornndls apparently a peed business man. Washington and his now position tiavo by no means over-owed Mm , nnd I Judge that ho hns n nufllcicnt amount of thnt assurance ana push which will make him n success licro bo- forctho departments. His sclf-rcllancohns been gained by a life of hard knocks. He was born In Michigan nnd had graduated nt the academy thcro when ho decided to start west nnd seek his fortune ' 1 hlJ was In IbliO. Ho left for Chicago with n goodly sum of mcmoy In hl pocket , the total of hit possessions. During the night ho spent In Chicago , however , ho was robbed. Ilo vvoho one morning to find hla pocketbook missing nnd Just enough spare chnngo to get him to Lenvenwortb , Kus. , which tboii formed the sinning point for many of the emigration trains going westward. Ilo stopped off the bout at Lcavcnworth without a cent In his nockot nnd as ho walked up the street ho was accostud by a Jew clothier who caught hold of him nnd naked hltn to come In nnd buy n suit of clothes. "I don't need any clothes , " replied McOonnol , "and besides you don't know how to sell clothes anyhow. 1 can sell moro coeds hi n day tluin you can In a week , and If you will glvo mo n ctinnco I will show you. " This rough address cap tured the Jew , whq was n good nuturod fel low nnd ho continued the talk with McConnell - nell and finally , at the lattcr's proposition , offered htm his board as long as ho stayed In Lcavcnworth If ho would sell for for him. Ilo made up a bed for him In the back part of the store nnd allowed him to sell Boino things on his own account , so that with in a , Sow days McConnol hud earned SOILO money and foil ready to push on towards thd west. In looking about for a chnnco to tro ho found a man who wanted a wagon trnlu driven to Salt I.nho City , McConncll told the man hotas an accomplished niulin jrivor nnd though ho had never held the reins be hind a mule ho got the Job. The train con sisted of a big canvas covered wagon to which wcro harnessed six muios. McConnell drove these all the way to Salt Lake City. It took fifty-two days to make the trip and ho got $1 a day. This money made him feel quite rich and when ho arrived at Salt JV.ilto bo was ready to push on to California and the gold Holds. Ho engaged In mining In California niid was doing very well when n washout and a flood swept away all tils pros pects. M'CCONNEL'S $02,000 POTATO CHOI1. In the meantime ho had noticed thtit eycry one who owned a farm or a garden hi the vi cinity of the California mines made money out of it. It struck him that tbo sarao thing might bo clone In Idaho , and he put what money bo had saved Into farming implements and seeds and started eastward to go into gardening. His articles had to bo carried on a pocU'traln and no walked 450 miles andlo- cnted his garden near Bolso City. Ills garden prospered nna ho was soon selling caobagcs by the thousands nt 40 cents a head , nnd his potato crop in ono year netted him $22,000. Ilo kept up his gar dening for three years , and made inonoy at It right nloug. His prollts enabled him to go Into other Businesses , and hois now'ono of the well-to-do men of the west. Ho lias been nn influential man in Idiiho for ycnvs , nnd like most of these western senator. ? , ho seems to think that the whole United States revolves around his nnw state and that it will eventually bo the greatest place agricultur ally nnd otherwise in the union. Ilo says it has the biggest mlno in the world , nnd he carries a lithograph of this tnlno about with him to provo to strangers thnt ho Is telling the truth. It Is culled the Do Lamar mlno , and It produces f.tO.OOO of gold and silver tt. month , with a prospect of its Increasing its yield vastly in the future. A , SENATOR'S ma WHEAT STOIIIES. Senator McConncl says the panhandle of Idaho Is the finest agricultural region in the United Slates , and ho tells stories about Its wheat productions which , if true , would almost enable the owners of the Innd to get mortgages at 0 nor cent instead of the rates of 10 nnd 12 which ere said to hold good la Kansas. Ho says that thcro are hundicds of nercsof wheat In the ptinlmudlo whlcti turn out forty bushels per acre right along , and ho relates an Incident which occurred in n sleep ing cur upon which bo was traveling through Idaho this full Said ho : "Theio wcro two skeptical eastern men in the berth opposite me , and I overheard ono talking to the other. They were discussing western men and western stories , and ono of them said ) 'Theso westerners are the most accomplished liars of the world. Tuny try to pretend thnt they have lands out here tnat will produce sixty busticls of wheat to the iiero. Now you nnd I know that thnt can't bo , and still they tell the story with as straight n face as though they were reciting Bcripturo or n sermon. ' I let the men go ou forsomntlmoln this strnln and heard them traduce our people ns liars and gamblers and laugh moro and moro as they wont along about the big wheat stories. At last I could stand It no longer and I broke into the con versation. 'Gentlemen , ' said I , 'I am n , west erner nnd I suppose I nm something of a liar and I do cot know but that I may bo some thing of a gambler. I know that I am liar enough to say that wo hnvo right hero in this country which wo nro passing through , land which \\111 not only produce sixty'but 100 bushels of wheat to the ncro. ' Hcrcat both of the easterns laughed incredulously , aud I went on , 'And what's more , centloincn , I nm gambler enough to but any amount nn that statement from $1 to $2i,000 ) nnd the train will stop in a moment nt Mlssoula whcro there is n bank where wo can get our checks certified nnd deposit the bet until ttio matter can bo vcriUod.11 This rather took the wind out of the sails of my follow traveler * . They wouldn't bellovomo'but they weren't willing to bet. My bluff , however , shut up their mouths and I Ivos not bothered about nny further remarks as to western liars during the remainder of the day. " A LOOK AT SKN'ATOIl snOUV. Senator Shoup , the other senator from Idaho , Is of about the same ago of McConncl. Ilo la n tall , straight , broad-shouldered , bluo- eyed man with a big head silently bald iit too top. Ho has a Una face und he Is ono of the good looking men ou the republican side of the chamber. Ilo Is a man with n history and ho lias been beloro the scimto boforo. About twenty-six years ago ho was Investi 3.l l- gated ns ono of the ofllccrs nt the battle ) lf Sand crook where It was charged that lO United States troops wore not Quito ns lo to the Indians as they might have been. leI don't ' know how the Investigation turned loft but I think that Colonel Shoup came out of ft with honor. Now a quarter of a century later , ho coniej back to Washington to bo a Eountor himself and If thcro nro any investi l- gations of the so-called massacres of the Kloux , ho will probably have u hand in them. Ho was a noted government scout during the late civil war and commanded troops through out different puru of the west. Ho started west when ho was only sixteen years old 'da ; his father , who was a woll-to-do Pcnnsylva- nian , nnd stopped ilrst In Illinois where his father engaged iu stock raising. Ha loft hero nt the ago of eighteen nnd crossed the plains iu an emigrant train of canvas cov ered wagons , and engaged In mining some where near 1/iko'a Peak. Ilo kept u store cBt the snmotlino and the store paid enough tone keep the mines golne , Ilo mined for uomo time and tr.cu moved northward and finally settled In Bolso City. Ho boa been engaged la inlaid ? , stock raising and meroautllo busl- no-js for years , and bo U now snld to bo ono of the rich men of his stato. Ho has had nil tbo honors thnt the state and tcmtorv could give him , nnd ho was its Ilrst governor and loft the executive chair to tnko his present place in the senate. Ilo has been a niombor of the national republican committed. nnd ho says thcro Is no doubt of his republicanism , notwithstanding bis action on the silver hill i\ couple of weeks ago. TWO 1JKTKOIT t.AWTEHS. The ups nnd downs of politics wcro well Illustrated lu n trial which took plnco before the supreme court this week. A dapper llt- tlo gentleman with luxuriant sldcwhiskors the color of tanbarlc nnd with an air alto gether like that of a la-do-lnh preacher , was haranguing the old men In gowns on the subject of 5 patent case. The prcacher-IIko lawyer made n good speech nnd ho was closely listened to by ono of the Justices at least. This Justice sat nt the extreme end of the bench nearest the clerk's ofllce , and ho frowned from time to tlmo with all the Im portance of n new Judge. Ho had a big head , a high broad forehead , and his seroro eyes looked out from under his heavy , bushy brows. Ills iioao was n Homan one , and it was largo and straight. Ills great mouth was tightly closed in conscious dignity nnd ho wrinkled ills brow as ho sat there nnd frowned nnd frowned nnd watched the dup- porllttlo gentleman make hi ? plea. Thodlg- ulflcd man was the new nuprcmo court Jus tice , Judge Brown of Detroit , nnd the dapper little gontlotnnn with the tanbarlc whlsucrs was Don M. Dickciison. who was postmaster general In Clci eland's ' cabinet. A few years ngo both of thcso men wcro practicing before the Detroit bar nnd both had great oul- clal ambitions , Dickonson reached tbo top of tbo ladder of his desires first and ho rather smiled at Drown us ho sat In the great postofllco department and i looked outnt him still trylugcases lnUctn > | t. Ho foil baok 10 his old level nt Harrison's 1 election mid now It Is Brown who Is on lop. and on top to stay. Cabinet , olllccrs rise and full with presidential elections , but Judges of the supreme couit arc elected for life , nnd iirowii hns the assurance of dying full of honors. He is u line looking Judge und ho lee .is very much llito Judge Brewer , who sits in tbo other end of the bench He owes his appointment very much to his friends for promptly pressing his claims. He hns long wanted to bo n supreme justice , nnd when Stanley Matthews died ills friends were hero and they wcra ready to push him for the placo. After Brewer was appointed they re served their papers in hand for the death of the next Justice , and upon Juugo Millar's de cease they at once filed their cluims. Judge Brown is said to bo n very fine law } or. Ho made a fortune nt the luw and ho is worth some wbcro between $500.000 nnd lOOl'COO. ' Ho Is the richest justicn of the supreme court since the days of Chief Justice Marshall , who died owning about n hundred thousand acres of land and stocks and bonds galore. HOW IHK MISSOURI SKXATOIW KfcEl'Timil SKATS. Ono of the brightest western congressmen Is Representative Tnrsetioy of Missouri. Ho Is a brother of Tim T.irseney , who was in the last house , nnd 1m isiiuitoas level headed and quite as witty ns his brother , i asked him us to the standing of Senator Cockrell in Mis souri and wherein consisted his strength with the people. Said Air. Turseney : "Senator Cockrell is ono of the most popu lar men in his stnto , and ho is a much bettor politician than ho is given credit for being. Thcro Is hardly n granger In the stale of Mis souri who has not 0110 of Frank Cockrell's autograph letters fnimod to hnng up in his parlor. Cockrell attends to his conospond- cnco better than any public man I know. Ho answers every letter tbo moment it is re ceived , and If the writer wants anything at Washington bis letter is replied to "with the statement thnt the mutter will bo attended to at once nnd n few days later ho writes an other letter telling tno man Just how his case stands and sending him what ho wonts. Senator Cockroll has the statesman's memory. If he meets you today ho will know your face fifteen years from now , and if ho has mot your wife ho will bo sure to ask what has become of Maria nnd how Is baby John , who was with you when-ho last saw you. Ilo makes It his business toattond to the wants of his constituents. Ho is ono of the hardest workers In public life , nnd ho Isn't afraid to tnculo John Sherman , George P. Edmunds , or any of tbo other big bugs on the other sldo of the chamber. " "AVhnt kind of a man Is Vest ! " I asked. "Senator Vest , " replied Mr. Tarsenoy , "Is the direct opposite to Cockicll. Ilo hol'ls his position thiough pure brains , nnd ho has no missing qualities whatever. IIu luw hud so much trouble of ono kind or another that ho has become to n certain extent misanthropic , and lie is not , ns a rule , a good conversation alist. Ho Is n man of great ability uud wo Missourinns admire him. " SKSATOH TUiirin's EDUOvnox. The conversation here turned to literary senators , and Mr. Tarsenoy said that ho bo- lloved that Mr. Turplowns the best posted and most bookish of any man at Washington. said ho : "Senator Turplo understands half n dozen different languages. speaks French , German and Italian and tie quotes Shakespeare , Homer and the bible In the same breath. Ho came out to Kansas City not long ago and I wanted to show him the town. I proposed n carriage , but he objected and said ho didn't want to ride around the streets and that ho would rather walk and look at the store win dows. As wo started out ho asked mo if wo had any good bookstores. I told him wo had a few , and ho asked to be shown the uiggost ono. Wo went to it and Turplo asked the clerk for fomo outlandish old book that I had never seen or heard of. The clerks didn't know the book , nnd ono after another , includ ing the proprietor , was asked concerning It , but all professed ignorance. At lust the lady bookkeeper was called UD , and she snid she thought they had a copy of it. She got it nna gave It to Turplo. Ho grabbed at it like a hungry dog at a hone and sat down right there and read nwny atit for an hour , while I watched him in wonder , wanting to show him the town and waiting for him to linish his education. " xn'a nurp JUSTICU or ASD THE KAXSIN. Hon. Jerry Simpson , the sockless states man , who has been elected bv Kansas to congress will bo ono of the characters of the next house. Ho will by no means bo the only man of his class In congress and the stories of the boorlshncss of congressmen pronusotohe moro numerous than ever bo foro. Simpson Is by no means the only illit erate statesman iu Kansas , and I heard last night the story of an incident which oc curred when Lord Chief Justice Coleridgo of England was In this country Coleridgo was a perfect Chester ! ! eld ns regards manners. Ho was a man of great ability und wide learn ing nnd ho knew the classics as well as ho dlu the English. During his tour through the west ho stopped nt Topekiv and was given a dinner at the expense of the stato. The feast was an elegant ono nnd nil of the great men from mlles around wcro Invited to It to honor the Lord Chief Justice. His honor had the govoinor on ono side of him at the tnblo nnd the lieutenant covernor of the state on the other side. As the party sat down the menu cards had already been laid bcsldo their plntea. These cards were very lino. They cost fi5 apiece and they bore at tlielr heads the coat-of-arms of Kansas which upon was en graved the motto , ' nd nstra per nsiicni. " As Chief Justle Cnlcrldgosatdownho took up this rnrd nnd looking at tbo motto , snid to tbo man on his loft , "Very good Indeed , nnd very appropriate. " "What's goocll" asked the lieutenant > vornor. "I refer to thcso words , " said Judge Colo- rldgo ns ho pointed to the motto. "Yes , " replied the lieutenant governor , with a knowing look as though ho were giving important information , "them words Is Latin. " I nave not heard the reply of the chief Justice , but ho must hnvo thought a great deal. FIUNO G. CnrEXTin. TJIK H TJlstA U KllS.

Boplnn ng with Louis XVI. , from"whom ho received his first apijolntment , and from whom uo went later with a letter to the kinr ( of ling- land , Talleyrand served In all eight known masters besides u Ki'cat number of others who were nt ono tlmo or another said to have him secretly lu their pay. Ho became presi dent of the constituent assembly which or ganized the French revolution. Ho w.u sent to London on u secret mission with a pass port from Dauton. JIo was minister of for- clpn affairs under the directory , under the consulate , under the ornnire , under Lonls XVIII. , and under Louis Plullippo. In diplo matic skill ana success public opinion held him the Unit man of his rcriod that is to say , for half a century the nrat man of Euro pa As to real Inlluenco on ullalra , it Is doubtful If any minister since can ba said to have ox- cried ns much , with the exceptions only of Bismarck and Cavour.
