The hike to New Iiraunfclq. covering
aixty-rour miles, wnicn was in tnc na
ture of an endurance contest, con
vinced tho militiamen that they must
keep themselves physically fit.
Tho Washlngtonians' first pay day
here was characterized by scenes of
Jollity and mirth in strong contrast with
the soldiers' grouch over the delay In
paying them. When Capt. E. W. Ful
lam, regimental adjutant. Instructed
Sergeant Loveless, chief of the drum
nnd bugle corps, to sound "pay call,"
tho sergeant Jumped three feet In the
air and shouted with glee. At double
quick speed he rustled out the buglers
and drummers, ana began mo ever
welcomo pay day parade.
After sounding pay call the buglers
played a little ditty known oa "You're
In tho army now." The gist of this
song Is "You're In the army now,
you're not behind the plow, you base
born boob the probabilities of your be
coming wealthy arc most remote, you're
In tho army now." This Is not a ver
batim copy of the words, but It Is as
near accurate as Is printable.
The exuberant militiamen did not like
this song following pay call, and chased
tho buglers to their quarters.

Increase In efficiency, of street clean
ing. By the present arrangement con
tracts on these four classes of waste
removal are made every nvo years.
A new contractor would have to In
clude the cost of a plant in his bid.
Duplication of Work.
The old contractors take advantage
of this fact to lower their bids enough
to keep new bidders from competing
with them, but they also Include In
their bids a portion of the price repre
sented In their original bids for equip
ment of plants.
Money Is now spent on Inspection,
It was stated, which could be spent
on those directly engaged In the work
of wasto removal, it was stated.
When the street cleaning work was
taken out of the hands of contractors
th city saved $.10,000 at the outset
by converting Its inspectors Into fore
men, and thus eliminating a uvnlica
tlon of employment.
Price Increasing Yearly.
Each year, It Is argued, the cost of
erecting municipal plants for garbage
and refuse will Increase Price
of material has advanced 30 per cent,
ana tnat or machinery even more,
since tho estimates of cost of a mu
nicipal plant were made by Mr. Os
born. On the basis of existing prices he
made the following estimate:
"The not annual cost of tho District
In 102S, as estimated for the recom
mended project, amounts to $137,008,
Including interest and depreciation.
The amount required to collect and
dispose of municipal waste by present
contracts Is $101,020 per year. Assum
ing that tho cost by contract under
present conditions will not Increase,
there would be a saving of $.13,002 per
year If the work was done by the Dis
trict at the estimated cost for 102S.
"If this amount was set aside as a
sinking fund each year, with Interest
at 3'.i per cent. It would only require
approximately thirteen years to amor
tize tho total capital Investment of
$885,000, so that after this period not
only would the capital Investment bo
paid off, but the District would own
the plants In practically as good con
dition as when new."
Points In Plan.
The proposed plan of municipal col
lection and disposal Includes the fol
"Separate collection of each class of

from the standpoint of appearance
and elimination of nuisance.
"Construction of two garbage trans
