twenty-five yearn. Uke most of our Oct

bond, lie says: "1 have had Catarrh for
ten years would huwk and spit ; took cold
easily; my ears would feel stopped up and
nose also. About five years ago my hear
ing began to fall and recently my throat
and lungs would choke up in the night
with slime and 1 would nearly smother. I
could not rest and would get up In the
morning tired. My general health became
impaired and 1 about two months ago put
myself under Dr. Dennis' tieatment for
Catarrh. 1 am now improved in every
way. i have no more choking, no
more slime In noe or throat and my hear

committoo on ways ami means, which
means that ho will bo recognized as the
lender of tho majority on tho floor. The
remaining live will bo his lieutenants.
But it always happens in tho organiza
tion of the popular branch of our national
legislature-that a limited coterie actually
have the reins of power well in their
hands and do pretty much ustheyplenso.
It was so iti tlio Randall congresses, in
the Keifer congress, in the Carlislo con
gress, in tho Reed
by a coterio of
this sort comes
tnoro from gen
than from otllcial
power Great as
is tho power of
tho sp- akor
second o dy in im
portance to that
of tho president
of tho United
ho must lead moro because ho is a leader,
because he has followers on tho lloor,
than becauso he is chairman, A majority
of tho men in this houso uro compara
tively new to legislative life. Perhaps
moro than 250 of tho 830 membera aro in
their first or second term.
Young congressmen nearly always at
tach themselves to ono of five or six
leaders who havo been hero so many
years that tney
know every trick
of tho trade. Thoy
go to their lender
for advice and us
6iBtauce; he must
6ee tho speaker
for them, and pro
sent their claims
for recognition or
other favors As
soon as n man
gets u sufficient
number of theso
him be becomes a
lieutenant, und usually begins to as
pire to the speakership itself. When
these lieuteuants und tho speaker ngree
upon a lino of procedure it in pretty
certuin to be carried out to tho end.
Roger Q. Mills is a leader through his
sincerity, his ardor, his persistent zeal in
pressing one idea. Not gifted naturally
with the qualities of leadership, ho has
nevertheless reached tho very front rank
through his devotion to tho cause known
as tariif reform The four great Demo
cratic commoners of the last decade were
William U. Morrison. John U. Carlisle,
lloger Q. Mills
and Samuel J
Randall. The last

It happens that not all of tho Demo
cratic members of tho houso havo been
pleased to see the Carlisle-Mills coterio
"run things.'' Human naturo is pretty
much the samo ui the house as else
where, and men who cannot get "in'

"Ono thing I didn't like," said a
prominent Democrat, "was being com
polled to go to Mills or Willlo Ureckiu
rid go or Mo
Millin nnd ask
them to go to neo

ovory t i in u I
tion. There was
too much junta
rulo about it. But
when I got what
I wanted, ns I
usually did, I al
most forgot the
w. a i nitKCKiNitinois. manner in which
it was tiecetwtry to go about getting it.''
In this way, without there having been
anything liko bitterness or strife about
it, Crisp and Springer, both naturally
strong men, good debaters and person
ally popular, havo been pushed pretty
well to tho front, so that thoy uro now
strong competitors for speakership hon
ors. Ono tiling may bo depended upon,
and that Is the ability of every man who
comes to rank among tho leaders on tho
floor There is no such thing as sham
ming one's way into prominence in tho
house. It is a
placo In which
the bubble of
false protenso Is
ed. Tho man
who lights his
near tho top must
have good stuff in
Rt s 9
ability, tact, force,
ness for self pro
tection, sincerity a it. nitucKtNiiinaK.
and generosity with which to make
friends and hold them. Our houso of
commons is tho best placo that can bo
found for studying American character.
Hero 1100 odd of tho brightest, most ener
getic men of tho land are fighting for
recognition and standing. They aro
mon who have gono through tho compe
tition at homo tho struggles of caucus,
convention, election only to find that
after winning thoso battles they must
on coming hero enter another arena.
A dozen or more men, iu addition to
the soven already named, havo fought
the good fight und won high rauk as
commoners. Thero is James II. Blount,
of Georgia, a bril
who is indeed u
with small hope
of success. Wil
liam L. Wilson,
of West Virginia,
is an example of
what a man may
t. r. itf.nD modesty, learn
ing and affabili
ty, oven in tho hurly burly of tho house.
Many look upon Mr. Wilson as a prob
able speaker in tho event of a compro
mise, though my own opinion is that ono
of tho three leaders, Mills, Crisp or
Springer, will win, with their chancea
in about tho order named.
Herbert and Gates, of Alabama, are
strong men. and Turner, of Georgia, a
great lawyer, has won high placo us
chairman of un important committee.
Forney, of Alabama, is suro to bo chair

did uot like coterie rule, looking to
Crisp or Springer us their lender All
the last bouse ate
that I fancy this
trio ot survivors
of last fall's bat'
ties will have
much their own
way next winter
so far us the pul
icy and tactics of
the minority are
the leader of u
minority, us u thorn iu tho sides of the
dominaut party. Mr Reed promises to
bo fully as interesting and picturesque as
he was in the last congress, where bis
will was law The Republican host of
17S m the last house has been reduced by
one-half to a squad of eigbty-fcven men
iu the new congress, but it is a little
army which will not lam for leadership
Besides the three triumvirs, of whom
you will hear much next winter, a few
brilliant debaters remain to fight the
i in tj- battles. The best of them are
noutelle of Maine, Henderson and Hoi
liver of Iowa. Hitt and Hopkins of Illi
nois, Payne of New York, Dalzell of
Pennsylvania and Ilnugeu of Wisconsin.
Among the Republicans of prominence
and ability, though not strong iu debate,
are Diugli-v of Maine, Walker of Massa
chusetts, Bel'len of New York und Hen
derson of Iowa
In two months wo shall be up in the
gallery watching the first fury of battle
in the national arena.
