Tho Washington Htar of tho l.'lth Inst,
prints a vory accurate and llfo-llku
picture of the Hon. (J. M. Lambert
sou of this city, who succeeded fira,
A. H. Nettleton as assistant secretary
of the United states treasury. Tluwu
who know Mr. Lumbortson and huvo
studied and admired tho unaccountuhlo
Ins and outH of his fcaturen will readily
conclude that his plcturo,prlnted alone
In a prominent position, must have hid
to a sale of papers that duv that cre
ated qulto a stir among Washington
nowshovH. lint, seriously, those who
kiwiu' Mr. Lumbortson best can f 1 ml In
his features a great deal to ailinlro, al
though they are not modeled upon tho
pattern most approved among siiporll
clal observers. No one can study his
face for a moment without discovering
tho outward evidences It presents of
deep Intellectuality. Tho expression
upon his face Is always one of kindness
and thoughtfiillncss. Ho Is one of the
few men one meets Into whoso eyes an
oliservor can look and seem to fathom
his thoughts. One can easily lmaglno
tbni liU ihoiiL'htH are rollected In his
eyes, especially when ho Is engaged In
tfio trial of Homo great lawsuit.
Tho picture Is accompanied by an
extended sketch of his professional
life concluding with the statement;
"Ho Is a man of commanding ainicar-
unco, being over six feet In height, hut
Is vory gentle and pleasing In his man
ners. Ho Is already vory popular In
the department and will undoubtedly
prove a valuable aid to Secretary Fos
ter In tho udmlnlstratloii of Its Impor
tant and complicated functions." In
detailing his professional work tho
paperglves amongothorlnte resting facts
tho following; "Ho has had a number
of cases before the Interstate commerce
commission and In July, 181)0, ho argued
before that commission on behalf of
the farmers' ulllauco of the state of
Nebraska through tho authority of the
governor, tho question of reducing
tho rates on corn and other nrndiicta
transported from tho state of Nebraska
to the seaboard. His argument In that
case was printed and widely circulated.
Hulnomiontlv ho act'd as attorney for
the Interstate commerce commission at
Chicago In conne-.tlon with tho viola
tion of tho interstate commerce law.
Out of this arose the somewhat noted
Counsolman case, which Mr. Lambort
Kon argued In the Supremo Court of
tho Uinted States, and which was de
cided by that court about a year ago.
Subsoutyintly tho president was
strongly urged to appoint Mr. Lamlwrt

John C. Watson Is evidently In ear
nest In advocating a measure to pro
vide for the health of prisoners by re
quiring tlio raising of jail Hours above
the HiirVo of the ground. This Is
designed to do away with that relic of
feudal cruelty, the stono lloor of tho
dungeon, and Is not. as might ho sup
posed, with the design of assisting
prisoners t ) escape. Ho Iiiih made tho
law apply only to rountloH having
more than il.lKK) Inhabitant, an it Is
palpably so much more unhealthy for
a prisoner in a hlg county to sleep on
a ground lloor than it Is In a small and
sparsely settled county.

Tho sketch concludes: " Ills friends
toll a good ittury in connection, with hid
advent Into public life. Ho was a dele
gate to a republican congressional con
vention, ami as a special compliment to
his oratorical powers was chosen to put
In nomination thu iiamo of Judge
Lorenzo Crouusu. Standing in his
pluce, ho launched forth in tho most
eloquent terms In laudation of tho man
whoso selection to a seat in tho national
legislature, ho said, would not only
rolled uulKiuiided credit upon the state,
hut would also add such a decided lus
ter to the country's dladum that it
would fairly da.lo tho other nations
of tho world. Ho soared way ii1hvo tho
empyrean heights and metaphorically
brushed tho cobwebs from the skies,
hut tantalllngly withheld the name of
his Ideal candidate. That was to bo the
climax of bin peroration. It wait a long
address ami some of tho delegates lo
came Impatient. One of thu number,
who was waiting to put In a nomina
tion and was not fully aware of Mr.
LamborUson's position, finally turned
to one of his colleagues and. said:
'Who In thunder Is that follow talking
about, anyhow?' 'Well, I don't know,'
was tho measured response, 'I at judg
ing from his remarks I think ho Ih
going to nominate tho Holy Savior. I
don't know of any one olso whoso vir
tues meet Lumbortsou's vivid descrip
tion.' Notwithstanding those Irrev
erent comments on the Hiteech, Crounsu
wuh nominated by tho convention and
was duly elected. Some illnatured
jeopW Hay this was accomplished in
spite of l-uiubortson'h speech. A coin
cidf.nto in the case is that Judge
Cwjiir.t-0, who is now governor of
NeljriJiKii, resigned the omco ot assist
ant ivorotary of tho treasury a fow
ulihiliH only before Mr. Lumbortson
was uppointod to his present position."
