snered possessions of the navy. Is a beau
tiful silver service, the plft of the people
of a Kreat State to i battleship, the fate
of which vessel Is nmonp the Immortal
records of the American service alloat,
Tho ship referred to Is the old Maine,
the slnklnp of which in the sprlnp of lfcts
hastened tho war with Spain, and the
service Is tho samo that the people of
Maine pioruted to that ship In June,
iSOl, the first plft of the kind lu tho his
tory of the navy, and tho bepliinlnp of a
custom that up to elate has piven to the
KOVernment the llncst collection of silver
plnte In the world, a collection tho total
value of which is rapidly approaching the
In those days the her.ds of tho navy de
partment were not looking so far ahead
as now. The navy, as it Is to-day, hnd no
past at that time, and tlicro was no pre
cedent to call attention to the fact that
ships of war are not long-lived affairs,
and that with their going, whether to the
bottom of the sea or the Junk heap, some
sort of ownership would have to bo found
for the costly sliver sen-Ices that adorned
the oiriciTs' quarters.
So It was that some dozen years ago
the older went lorth that In tho futuie
sliver services for American men-of-war
should be presented to the ship, but the
title did not go to the ship, but to the
government at Washington, and the re
sult Is that to-day the navy ie i-.rtment
Is already In possession of thousands of
dollars' worth of the llncst punchbowl.,
soup dishes, ladles, wlr.e glasses, -enter
pieces, and cni.illeahra In all the world,
with every prospect of seeing the accu
mulation doubled, if not tiehled, within
the next live or 10 ears.
Some of there services are still on
board the obsolete ships, but the dn i
not far distant when the transfer to the
safer custody of tho government will
be ne-essary. The .Maine's service', a
service that rested at the bottom ol
Havana harbor for n dozen years, was
found In good condition, all tilings con
sidered, when the army engineers biouglit
the wieek of tho turnout old ship to the
surface a few months ago. and the silver
smiths had no great difficulty in making
It once more a tiling beautiful to look
It Is not possible as yet to compute
to an exact llgute the value of the sli
ver plato that has been turned bad
and is still being turned back, but. tak
ing into consideration ihe ships that are
admitted olllclully to be obsolete, it is
safo to say that the value of the plate
on such ships would reach u total well
above the JUl.''0 mark.
NAVY MAY HAVE SILVER SHOP.
It begins to look as if the. navy depart
ment will have to create a shop where
the finest productions of the sllvei smith's
art are on view, but where there is noth
ing for sale. Such u shop, Naval Sllvei
Plate .Museum would probably be more
appropriate, will display in its cases ol
glass, lirst of all, the service of the old
.Maine, a sen lce that y years ago Col.
C. H. Osgood of Lewlston spent nights
and days in designing.
Thi decorative designs i.ji the service
all refer to something ui other that re
minds one of the northensternmost of
the Atlantic Stales. There aro pine
trees, and, of course, the bull moose', and
the sailor, to show that Maine is a
seafaring State, and the tanner, to in
dicate that she Is also great agricultural
ly. The picsontatlon of this sendto oc
curred on June 3, Uld, and the last time
the service was used was within a week
of the time that the .Maine wns blown
up in Havana harbor.
'Ihe second service to be presented to,
any ship in the navy was the magnificent i
punch service given to the old cruiser I
Detioit by the citizens of the cjty after
which that ship was named. The Detioit
long ago ceased to be an active part of
the navy, and was recently ordered sold ,
to tlio highest bidder, which means the
Junk pile, unless some turbulent little
South or Central American or West In-1
dlan republic gets Into the list and hues
the ship fur "a navy."
The Detroit's punchbowl, with Its tray
and glasses, cost $1,0"i The decorations j
of the bowl are consldeied by many the
most beautiful of any on any piece of'
silver plate ever given to a ship. 1
The surface of the bowl shows a bac-1
ehanallan feast on a background of
giapcvlne- and grapes, while on the tray, I
little less beautiful, Is a splendid blrdseye '
view of the harbor of Detroit. 1

lor the continuance of the economy and
rlllclcncy commission Is not truly repre
sentative of democratic policy, saya the
Washington correspondent ot tho Ilostou
Transcript. The House leaders. In fact,
linvo been a good donl disturbed by the
Impression of hostility to administrative
reform which Chairman FiUgi raid Inn
given the rountry by hl persistent op
position to the work of the commission
At tho sime time it probably Is true that
no ntcmpt will he made to amend the bill
or to provide funds for tho commission
at this session of Congress.
Tho reason Is that Woodrotv Wilson hns
given tlie democratic leaders no Intima
tion us in his attitude toward tlio
economy and eiriciency commission. As
nt presiiit oiganlzed, the commission Is
merely nn appendage- of the White Ilouso.
It reports to President Tnft, not to Con
gress, and If the President does not llko
the character of Its report he can amend
it lu nnv particular; or at least, ho can
minimize or emphasise the recommenda
tions of the commission, if not suppress
them altogether. In his message.
WILSON AND THE ECONOMY COM
MISSION Whether President WINon will favor
continuing the economy and elilclency
commission, will preter to fee it placed
under the authority of Congress or of the
President, or will desln to reorganize the
commission along line. of his own the
democratic leaders do not know. The
higher grade democrats, like t'ndervvuod,
Hheiiey, Llovd and a dozen others that
might be mentioned, are not spoilsmen
They are as desirous of good government
ns anyone else and It Is safi to snv that
they would suppoit any plan of further
studv that the new President might out
line. The status ot the economy and ofllelcnev
commission Is Just this: that the I. .ulcr.s
will wait to hear from President Wilson
on the subject and act acconlmulv . Th
wiy that the friends of the commission
ne d not he disturbed If Congress f .lis t"
provide funds at this session, as three
months will lemaln between the op'tilng
of the extra session and the close of the
llscnl year, and if President Wilson so
wishes, suitable appropriations will lie
mnde, whether Chairman Fitzgerald
thinks well of the commission irtea in
MONTICELI.O ON THE REVIEWING
Even with the Inaugural ball omitted,
tho Wilson inauguration will pre sent
some features out ot the ordinary. Foi
example, the pre'Slrtential levhwing stanu
and Its setting will be imt only unique,
but the most biautiful within the lecol
leetion of the oldest Inhabit mt. The
Piesideiit's stand, which will be located
along Pennsylvania avenue on the sid. -walk
of the White House grounds, will
foim an arcliitectura' tribute to Wash
ington and to Jefferson. The immediate
center, where President Wilson will re
view the parade, is made in fac-slmlle of
the entrance to Monticello, the home of
Jefferson. Four immense columns flank
the entrance, and the overhead decora
tion Is a tepllca of that of Jefferson'
home. The little bay window n which
President Wilson will stand is nclosed
In glass, hut the sushi.-, ire r. movable
and the stand will be .n-ob open if cold
winds do not necessitate protection
Tin- two wings extending on either sub
of the President's stand are constructed
nfter the fashion of Washington's home
at Mount Vernon. S:mple square pillars
support the roof, which Is ornamented lu
front with a railing of Identical ' design
with that which sill mounts the poitlen at
Mount Vernon. The huge Monticello col
umns are made of the plaster of park
composition used In exposition buildings
The whole stand will be painted white
THE AHI1TE AND GREEN IDEA.
White nnd gieen constitute tho decora
tive scheme lor the inaugural committee,
and to carry out the iron fenco on thu
north side of the White House will be
subjicted t" a novel treatment. In the
past It has been "ornamented'' with wood
en pillars which have given a cheap et
fes:t. This year tbe committee has piovlil
ed dozen of tall Virginia cedurs, which
will be placed ulong the fence as ( Wisely
as possible. A smalli r row will be set out
in it out, and thus the While Ilouso and
Its piounrts will be completely screened
fiom street view on the Noith. The ob
leet, however, is not in iiunrily to shut otl
the view but Is to furnish a soft green
bnckgiound for the rj-nlly beautiful presl
dent'ul stand. The committee also has re
quired, for the first time, that tho Tteas
ury stand tie decked with a railing of ar
Tile Court of Honor will be crectiM, as
usual, directly opposite the presidential
stand, on the sui.lli bonier of Lafn.vctto
Paik. Llko its more imposing neighbor.
It will be pillaied and roofed and the
roofs of both struct in -s will he protect
ed lioin lain with tarred paper. That
thise two roiirili structures, to be used
for only two rta.vs. cost some J'.'C.OO may
give some hint of their extinl and their
he.iuly. Together they will sent some
W.nro persons. Tho President's stand l.s
oflielal and can be occupied only by in
vitation but the Couit ot Honor Is public
and the man from home stands ns good
a chance of bulnp a seat us the most
distinguished senator.- In fact, except up
on the InauBUral sf-ind nt the Capitol no
special provision is made anywhere for
the Healing of membeis of Congress.
TREES GHOW THROI'GH THE ROOF.
An expensive peculiarity of the two re
vbwinp stands named Is that they nte
const fueled In the midst of trees and
shrubbery. The carpenters lave respect
ed both, bv allowing the trees to pioirudu
up through the roof, n that the loots
although not used at all except ns n
shcllcl, present the aspect of the typical
roof gaiilui. In thi' Com t of Honor n
