THE CAPITAL CITY GUARD.
The excursion of the Capital
City Guard to Harpers Ferry W.
Va.s last Monday rvas in every
respect a big affair. So great was
the crowd that the managers were
compelled to run three trains from
this city aud one from Baltiir ore.
The first train with 17 coaches
left the Baltimore & Ohio Depot
at 8:20 second train at 9 with 10
coaches and the 3d traiu at 9:30,
with 12 coaches. Several bunded
got in at Hockville and others small
stations. The last trail met the one
from Baltimore, withlO coaches.
at Washington Junction, lhere
were about 2512 people in the park
at Harpers Eerry. There were two
bands of music at the park and
both pavillion were kept lively
during the da Thisexcurion was
about the largest that ever leftthis
city. Col. Kelly, Lieut. Joice,
Capt. Perry, and other members
of the committee worked hard for
the success of the excursiou.
The very best of order was pre
served and not a cross word was
spoken by any one. Owing to the
great number who were prohibited
from going on this excurison they
have requested the Guard to repeat
it. Which is under consideration.

The bankruptcy of the Paris
Morning News illustrates the
fact that, in journalism, as else
where, you cannot charge a plant
from its own soil and climate to
those which nature uever intend
ed it for, and expect it to flourish.
The conditions of existence which
enable the Parisian press to thrive
are inimical to healthy life of au
American newspaper. The Ameri
reader c.jres for news first and
opinious aiterwards. with the
French reader this is reversed. As
a consequence, the avenues for
news-getting in France are diffi
cult to thread: while auyT political
writer with the requisite audacity
of sentiment aud style, and a fair
kuowledge ot the art of fencing,
can make his way to fame an d
fortune with a little persistence.
The editor of the Morning News
started out with a purpose to give
the American on the Europen
continent a paper of the sort they
had at home. They could not, how
ever, print an interview without
the liability of a snddtn suspens
ion; They could not even tell how
much larger their circulation was
than Gahgnaui's without paying a
heavy fine for the privilege.
Against all these obstacles they
struggled for some years and made
a place for themselves, such as it 1
was. jDur. u was a place not nneu
with monev; and the collapse of
the concern under a load of debt
estimated at thirty thousand dol
lars has probable saved it from a
wore fate which might have come

A LIVELY MEETING., LAST WEEK.
CAPT BOSTON ELECTED TO SUCCEED
On the first of Eebruary last.
Major Fleetwood of the Washing
ton Cadet Corps, gave formal no
tice to that organization, that on
the 1st day of July he would re
tire from the position of its com
manding officer and leader, to
which he was elected January 4,
1880, and has since been.
The first public intimation given
of the proposed change was
througn the Bee in April last, but
owiug to the rules of the Corps,
it was difficult to get at a correct
statement of the case. At a meet
ing held on Wednesday June 3d,
the injunction of secrecy was re
moved and we are enabled to re
port that at the close of the regu
lar business, Maj. Fleetwood made
a formal tender of his resignation
aud supported it by a speech of
about fifteen minutes length, re
counting the history of the corps
from the time of his entry to the
present, contrasting its coudition
then and uov, and unanswerably
giving his reasons for having now
reached the fixed conclusion to
withdraw as he had raised the
corps from a sickly infancy to be
now a full grown man and able to
take care of itself. The corps atill
however refused unanimously to
take it in that shape, but on
motion of Capt. Boston, in consid
eration of the services aud record
of the Major in the upbuilding of
the corps, he was retired with the
same rank of Major for life, ex
empted from all clues and assess.
meuts, aud a framed certificate to
that effect ordered to be prepared
aud presented to him. The Major
was quite adected by this tribute
of appreciation and warmly ex
pressed his abiding interest in the
Capt. Geo. H. Boston, Capt.
Arthur Brooks and Col. Geo. Mr
Arnold were theu placed iu nom
ination for the vacant position and j
Capt. Boston was elected to be
Major commanding by an over
whelming majority, afterward
made unanimous. The entire
Drocedings of the meeting were
conducted with the best of feeling
and all pledged themselves to re
newed efforts to keep the flag of
the Cadets in the front where the
retiring Major had carried abd so
long kept it against all opposition.
Capt. Boston is a wide awake
man. He is liberal hearted and
one who has the respect and con
fidence of all well thinking people.
He has contributed liberally to the
support of the Cadets and vrill no
doubt in his new position do hon

Boston to succeed Maj. Fleetwood
has been anticipated some time.
