FUTURE OF THE FENCIBLES
Handsome Quarters Secured For
Their Armory at 913 E Street.
Cupt. Do nior Declares There XIu Been
.No Lack or "Hntlulloulzlmt tbo
ITenelblCH and lliflcs.
The future of the rencihles is assured In
the very handsome quatter.t, which" they
have just seemed at No. QUI D street
northwest.. This building has recently
been remodeled and fitted up in the most
approved style just in time to receive Uie
Fenclbles. whose uniforms and military
impedimenta willbeseut to thcnewqiiaitcrs
The Fenclbles, by tho way, are going
back into the neighborhood of their birth
place and Uiat of some of the crack corps
of the city The whole block is alivo
with military history and traditions.
A report has been in circulation for a few
days that the reucibles and the National
Killus would form a battalion. The
result, in this case, involves two condi
tions: That Uie Rifles shall decode from the
militia, or that the Fenclbles shall coalesce
wtUi the Rifles aud accept their name, in
which case the suggestion would bo possi
ble. The Washington Light Infantry, for
instance, is composed of four companies
till under the name of tho
Capt. Doincr said last night, referring
to tho reported baitaIioui7big of the two
companies; that the suggestion was sim
ply in tho air. the rumor, doubtless, he
said, being traceable to the fraternnble
relations of the organizations. The dis
cussion of tho question was purely Informal;
certainly noneorthoofricersof thcFeneiblea
or National Rifles had discussed it.
Notwithstanding tho fact that the piono
eition is informal uud onlv military gossip,
it would not surprise the public if the reu
cibles and Rifles should inarch again under
tho same r-ompauy insignia.
The only remaining ceremony In connec
tion with tho disbuiidnicut of tho Fencibles
will be the "mustering out." The order to
disband practically carried with it the
duty of mustering out This last will lw

in writing that they have beeiunusteredout

The details "wore related to The Times
yesterday of all organization in the United
States Treasury Department, the ostensible
piupose of v.'!ilf.h,s to benefit department
clerks !" '
The organization has its paper printed
so as to read the Economic Keller Associa
tion. It is composed of cleiks in the Treasury
Department who lend money to membets
and brethren at .1 per tent per month
or3G per cent per yoar .
According to the laws of the District
of Columbia this organization is an usurious
one, plain and simple
It is said that the members of this 3 per
cent, per month bunking scheme, are men
in good standing in various churches, and
that they are regarded as men of high repute
In the Tieasury
PAiT.'lC PER CENT.
The clerks in the Treasury not members
are required to get oue or two goodi udoisers
and still pay ;t( per cent a year while
they could gel the samo amounts m the city
banks with good indorsers at from 'J to 8
per cent, a year, .It is plain that this
Economic Relief Association can make
the difference between the legal rate, aud
their usurious, rate, by simply having the
influence or means to get from any bank
enough money to lend to tho clerks who need
'economic relief '
The association is credited Willi having
outoaloait from S20,000to S25.000 a jear
which gives the co-operntors a pretty r.ur
dividend at 36 per cent.
SECRETARY SMYSER'S STATEMENT
Mr W II. Smys.r,a clerk in the office of
the second auditor of the Treasury, is the
secretary and treasurer of this association.
He was called on yesterday and made a
statement In reference to the history and
transactions of the concern It was or
ganized under the Harrison administration
-vi hen Gen Patterson, was second auditor
of the Treasury Mr. Srayser said that Gen
Patersou was cognizant of the association
and it's object and permitted it to exist
under the agreement that it should not
work during office hours
lb is a eo-oieraUve tissoci.it ion com
posed of abont 30 or 40 clerks, to whoiflj
are issued certificates, of deposit on which
they can raise money It also does busi
ness outside the membership and. lends
money at three per cent per month. A
clerk for instance, ,ou endorsement, can
get say $10 for a month for 25 cents, and
Mr Smyser said ttiat they usually prefer
to pay this than borrow from other sources.
BENEFITS THE CLERKS
Mr Smyser contends that the association
is really a benefit to the clerks in the
department, and he is informed that Similar
associations exist in other departments
of the government. He was asked if Col.

that he had no knowledge of it, bat that he
would stop it summarily if such ft business
was conducted in the department during
office hours. He had no control over busi
ness transactions ot the clerics which were

that tho matter was not now before I mi
