Baited States Senators Who Leok
Visitors to the Senate galleries, says the)
Washington Critic, can not fail to notice the
singular resemblances between half a dosen
prominent members of tho present Senate
and as many other conspicuous figures in
tho country's political history.
Occasionally Senator Eustis, of Louisiana,
strikes an attitude, or his features catch a
peculiar light, which renders his resem
blance to Blaine so striking that it is gener
ally recognized and commented upon. Al
though so widely 'separated in latitude, the
statesmen from the extreme North and
South arc so much alike in appearance that
it is sometimes difficult to convince a visitor
that tho "man from Maine" is not again in
Senator Blair's resemblance to Hayes has
often been commented upon, and increases
with the marks that time is making upon
tho philanthropic New England Senator.
The two men might readily be mistaken for
each other. The resemblance which in tho
case of Eustis and Blaine does not extend
further than to the similarity of feature and
expression, in this case extends to manner,
voice, form and bearing, and is in all re
spects soemingly almost perfect.
The similarity between the face and form
of Senator Cullom and the portraits of Lin
coln, heightened by the fact of their similar
geographical origin, has been the subject of
remark for many years and has done its
full part in shaping the political destinies of
Senator Morrill's resemblance to Charles
Sumner is one of the most notable of the
Senate likenesses, owing to its singular
fidelity to every detail of countenance, color
of eye, shade of hair and even to the tones
of the voice and case of gesture.
To the visitor who is seeking resemblances
there is little ditliculity in noticing a strik
ing likeness between the profile of Senator
Gorman and that of Washington as shown
by many of the medallion portraits. This
resemblance is sufficiently apparent to have
been often remarked, and when the face of
the Maryland Senator is in perfect repose i
and the expression one of attentive thought J
it affords certainly the closest resemblance J
to the face of Washington of any now in
The new Senators have displaced several
of tho Senate gallery of living likenesses,
but have added cue of the most striking to
the number it. is that of Senator Davis, of
Minnesota, whose resemblance to Ben But
ler is so great as to impress itself upon the
most casual observer.
THE AWFUL BLIZZARD.
llow It Carrie hnftVrJns anil OHcn Death
to Western Travelers.
A blizzard is simply a strong, cold wind
moving unchecked over leagues of light
unpacked snow, says the Toronto Globe. It
sweeps up that which has previously fallen,
carries it away in the color of a vast shaken
fleece, distributes it so that each atmos
pheric atom has its little particle, and drives
along all with a steady fury. Whether fresh
snow is falling can seldom be determined by 1
people out in a real blizzard. As rar as the
eye can sec upward, and that is but a little
space, the hurry of minute pellets hurtling
through ether across an uurevcaled sky pre
vails, and the hurrying sameness on every
side is varied only by occasional tall and bend
ing wraiths where the wi'iu whirls in shifting
column. A confusion of the senses, compar
ablo to none produced otherwise, appalls one
submitted to the enormous and blinding
force of such a snow-hllcd vind, r.nd scarce
ly a distinct thought remains, except that
the awful cold forbids crouching for rest
and shelter. To our personal knowledge, one
in such a storm keeps with difficulty upon a
railway track lifted three feet above the
surrounding prairie, :::id may be lost 1)3
five steps the wrong way after stumbling
down from tho embankment, which, being
white, Lccomcs instantly invisible.
It is recorded on good authority that
teamsters halting with their horses have
been snowed over thirty feet deep by bliz
zards, and have survived by beating out
breathing chambers till the cessation of the
storm enabled them to dig themselves to
upper air. The formation of a drift about a
halted man or horse or r'eigh is sometimes
wonderfully speedy, and the drift, once es
tablished, grows by virtue of its obstructive
ncss. In some well-authenticated eases
lost persons have been found by the drifts
over them and dug out alive; in others, tho
spring has revealed corpses still unthawed
among tho last white relics of winter. In
blizzards people have often been unable to
see across the street of a northwest town,
nnd sometimes lose their direction in trying
to reach the opposite side of a well-built

Ours is a great country. This is not an
original remark, but it has a lame quantity
of truth in it And we are continually
growing greater iu very many respects in
cluding some that are not of a character in
which wo can take any pride. But it is in
population that wc arc making the most
gigantic strides. The St. Louis Clotx-Demo-erat
shows oiir present and prospective posi
tions in this respect :-.s follows:
41 The United States has a population of at
least G2.COC,000 at this moment. This makes
it second in this particular among the great
civilized nations of the world. Keeping in
view the ratio of growth of tho countries
named between recent census periods, there
arc to-day about SS.WW.000 inhabitants in
European Russia, 47,000,000 in Germany,
40,000,000 in Austro-Uungary, 38,000,000 in
Franco. 87,000,000 in Groat Britain and Ire
land, 30,000,000 in Italy, and 17,000,000 in
Spain. The population of none of the other
countries in Europe reaches 10,000.000
Turkey's inhabitants outside of Asia aggre
gate scarcely half that figure. Russia

Even Russia must scon be left far in the

Waite died at C: 10 o'clock this morning.
The Chief Justice dined on Saturday
evening with Senator Hearst and on his
return home ho became so ill that his fami

Ho was confined to his bed on Sunday and
on Monday he insisted upon going to the
Supreme Court to be present when the de

The weather was mild and .the doctor

The telephone decision had been written
by the Chief Justice, but he was too ill to
read it from the bench, and that duty was
therefore performed by Justice Blatch
ford. Special care was taken that no evi
dence of the Chiet Justice's illness should
appear, and none'of the throng that heard
the decision read suspected the real reason
why it was announced by Justice BUtch
ford. As soon as possible after the reading,
Justico Waite left the bench and was hur
riedly driven home. It is ad mittcd that the
trip to the capitol was fur from prudent for
one in Justice Walte's condition, but it is
asserted that no serious consequences can
be ascribed to it Tho Chief Justico was
determined to go and the doctors had to
yc!d. He went back to bed and since then
had been a very sick man.
On Tuesday morning symptoms of acute
bronchitis appeared, accompanied by in
somnia aud great rest essucss. Uis condi
tion Tuesday was net alarming, but on
Wednesday circumscribed pneumonia
showed itself. On Thursday night be was
comfortable, and no particular alarm vas
felt but at six o'clock this morning failure
of the heart's action was observed. Death
ensued in a few minutes.
His daughter, Miss Marie F. Waite, and
bis son, Mr. C. C. Waite, vicc-picsidentof

any information to give to inq-rrers, and
extraordinary efforts were uudc by all
having ..nowlcdgc of the facts to keep
the Chief Justice's illness a secret.
Justice Wane's, illness was due to trouble
with his liver and spleen, complicated with
very painful stomach disorders. Justice
Waite had a very serious lit of sickness
just at the close of the administration of
President Arthur. He was confined to his
hou-c for several weeks with an attack of
erysipelas, that threatened at one time to
have a fatal termination. The serious
character of his illness at that time was
not generally known until after the crisis
had been passed, and it was not until he
was well enough to bo up and about his

paragraphs appeared reporting him to be

Chief Justice Waite was born in Lynn, Conn.,
in 1S16. In this State his youth wasYpassed.
His education was completed at Yle College,
from which institution he graduates' in 1KT7.
His inclinations were for the legal profession.

moved to Maumeo City, O., where-hc actively
entered into the business of his profession. He
never manifested any taste ftr .party politics,
but never shrank from fuUHjJf-his duty as
citizen. In 1819 he was e1cM to the Ohio
Legislature in which body hurgood sense was
manifested on all measures of public policy.
In Is'jO he removed to Toledo, which city he
made his home until he moved to Washingtos
City in 17-1. He was devoted to the law, sad
while at Toledo he declined repeated nomina
tions to Concrcss. He also refused to accept an
appointment to the Supremo bench of his8tate.

There was perhaps no lawyer In the State bet

In IK74 President Grant appointed him Chief
Justice of the United States. This position he
has tilled with honor to himself and to trfs
country. His rulings hare been in the main

appointment was fortunate in that it placed a
solid and conservative lawyer at the head ot the
court of highest resort In the country.
The dead Chief Justice's full name was Mor

with a view to suing Cox for dataagCA
Being asked how much the suit would be
for f 10,000 or more he answered : "Yes,
and three times ten and more. I have not
determined just yet how much it will be,
but it will be a good round sum,
you can bet." The girl. Day added,
had partially recovered from her
injuries, although her face was
badly swollen aud discolored from the
effects of the acid, and her hair was falling

trouble, came with the girl. "The boy,"
said Day, "is determined to do the right

Mexico, Mo., March 23. It is about a set
tied fact that the course of the Chicago,
Hannibal & Springfield railroad from Han

the change the line will run from this city
to the Missouri river, crossing at Moniteau

Hannibal over some existing road, which,
it is whispered, is nothing less than the
