Williams Well Informed.
Representative Williams of Mlsstinlp-
1 Is a minority leader who leads. There
f no subject of Importance which

ot speak. By keeping 1 close touch
vlth the minority members of all the

rom him on the minority side.
Talk In Two Houses.
One of the stenographers of the house
lelmtes took pains to figure up the
imoiinl of talk lu the two houses of
congress after the close of a session ,
and he found that Ihe representatives
averaged forty five words per minute
norc than hcimtors. The average for
he senate was 110 words and the
louse 1S. > words. One dny for sK
lours the debate in the house averaged
201 ! winds a minute. There Is only oni1
cry rapid talker In the senate now ,
Senator Clarke of Arkansas , but there
ire seveni 1 In the house. Represeiitn
live Llttlelleld has the best record. Hi
.diked an hour and n half recently and
iveraged 200 words a minute. The
'aslest ' talker the house has known In
recent times was Henry II. .Johnson of
Indiana , who talked .MO words a niln
ite for one hour and twenty minutes
lie was what the shorthand men called
1 "roast. "
Senator Warren In Demand.
" " christened
"Beau Brummel" they
Senator Warren on the trip which the
congressional party took to the Phil
.prunes. The Wyoming senator , yount ,
looking , well groomed , attired In the
latest styles , with n pleasant word for
everybody and especially gracious to
the ladles , was given the appellation
with no murk of criticism , but with respect
spoct and regard. The popularity of
the senator on the trip Is reflected In
his popularity In Washington. He Is a
man ever In demand at dinners am :
balls and other entertainments. No
man In congress receives so many In
vltatlons , and weie It not for the grou
amount of work he has to do he couk
spend all his time In the social whirl.
Rascal and Fool.
"There Is some hope , " said Senator
Bailey In debute recently , "of correct
ing a rascal by bringing him to believe
it Is best to be honest , but there is no
remedy for a fool that I have ever been
able to discover. "
Familiar With tha Navy.
Representative Foss of Illinois In
probably more familiar with the navy
than any other man in congress am
certainly knows more about It thaunuy
one of the three men who Imve been
secretaries of the navy during the pas
four years. Moody did not give the at
tentlou to It that he no doubt would
have given If he had not been looking
forward to another cabinet place ; Paul
Morton did not stay long enough to
learn much about It , and Bonaparte
since his Incumbency has been Im
mersed In politics and winding up his
law business , but It Is doubtful If In
four years any secretary would lenrn
as much as Foss knows. The naval
committee Is obliged to know n grenl
deal about every feature of the great
department of national defense , but
Foss makes It his business to know
every detail , whether it be the manage
ment of the department or the build
ing of n warship.
