WASHINGTO N LETTER.
Washington, May 27th, 1887.
All things are quiet at the Capitol ex
cept the military. If the soldier boys
do not have a good time it will be nois
fault of their hosts. Every thing was
in readiness by Saturday for their com
ing. The largest area of beautiful grass
plot on which they drill is enclosed by
a fence so high that no little urchin
can scramble to its top or get a view
of the lovely panorama within without
paying his twenty-five cents, or climb
the telegraph posts to view the coveted
sight as Ben. Butler ascended his tow
er to take in the situation around Rich
mond during the late unpleasantness.
Rails have been laid for the movement
of the two vessels that will represent
the fight between the Monitor and Mer
rimack. This will be a grand and
thrilling spectacle. The drill ground is
partially enclosed by a grand stand that
will seat 15,000. On Sunday, next the
celebrated divine Rev. T. DeWitt Tal
mage, will preach on the camp grounds
to the soldiery. Applications are pil
ing up for seats on that occasion.
The beautiful green on the bank of
the Potomac and from which the Wash
ington Monument towers up 555 feet,
covered with snow white tents for
the quartering of the troops, most of
whom arrived Saturday and Sunday and
now every train is bringing in more.
This country has never witnessed in
time of peace such a military pageant
as is in store for Washington and itscompany
thousands of visitors this week.
The judges of drill are all experi
enced army officers, who have passed
much time at the leading institutions
where the manual of arms was thought
of first in everything. The judges' pro
gramme has not been made known, of
course, and no military organization
will be informed what maneuvers it
will be required to perform until it en
ters the drill ground for each contest.
The highest prize offered is $5000,
and that is for the best company of in
It takes quite a good deal of money
to run the dining room and kitchen
erected on the drill ground for this oc
casion. The kitchen is capable of pre
paring food for four thousand persons
at a time, and is fitted up with the larg
est range in the city. The dining room
seats twelve hundred men, allowing
seventeen inches of room for each, and
the caterer who purchased this privi
lege says he can reset the tables every
twenty-five minutes. The amount of
crockery is very larze, nearly fifty
thousand pieces. About nineteen hun
dred of the soldiers are attempting to
do their own cooking on account of the
bad they treatment have received hereto
fore while attending other drills.The cat
erer hopes however, to win all.of them
over to his establishment by doing well
by the soldiers. He is under contract
with the Drill committee to charge his
military patrons only one dollar for
three meals. Others he can charge what
Wednesday the 25th and Monday, the
30th, (Decoration day) will be
great days of the camp in popular esti
mation. Wednesday will be Gover
nor's day on which the Governors of dif
ferent States with their staffs, will sur
round the President on a grand stand
in front of the White House and review
the troops. On Decoration day
soldiers in camp will join the proces
sion to Arlington, the National ceme
try, and with the Grand Army of
Republic, take part in the excersises of
the day. In the afternoon of the same
day the prizes and trophies, the flags
and stands of colors, the medals and
cash premiums will be presented to the
successful competitors and then the
camp will break up. The victors will
receive their "spoils," of course, from
the hands of the president.
The government of this camp is regu
lar and rigid according to Army regu
lations, thus giving those who partici
pate an idea of actual service, such as
many of them never had. All commands
are subjected to camp duty regular
inspection at quarters, daily dress par
ade, and all rules, regulations and orders
that may be promulgated by the com
mandant of the camp. All commands
entered are required to remain dur
ing the full term of the camp, and are
not permitted to quarter and board out
side of it.
Judical circles are much agitated as to
who will be appointed co fill the vacan
cy on the Supreme Court Bench made
by the death of Justice Woods. Many
prominent names have been mentioned,
the number including Secretary Lamar
and Attorney General Garland. I is
generally conceded that the appoint
ment will go to the South. Although
his name has not yet been mentioned
you need not be surprised if Circuit
Judge Jackson receives the appoint
ment. Judge Jackson was loth to
leave the Senate and only did so at the
earnest solicitation of the President. It
is believed that however much he might
have been willing to accomodate the
Presdent he would not have given up
his seat in the Senate unless he had
cause to believe lhatwhen the oppor
tunity arose he would be appointed to
the U. S. Supreme Court Bench. The
judge is not only an able jurist but is
also from the Southrepresenting Ten
nessee in the Senate at the time of his
appointment to the Circuit Court Bench.
In view of all the circumstances, Judge
Jackson is likely to receive the appoint
The Ministers of the Gospel in the
District of Columbia are becoming very
aggressive. Within the past week they
have agreed not to marry any divorced
person unless the divorce has been ob
tained for adultry. hast Session of
Congresss they made a strenuous effort
to have Congress amend the divorce
laws in force here so as to allow divorce
for only one or two causes whereas at

The Clerks in the departments are
getting bravely over their recent scare
produced by the new rules of the Civil
Service Commissioners compelling all
employes to undergo an examination
for promotion whether they wanted to
or not, and in the event of failure to
come up to the standard be subject to
dismissal. The explanation given by
Commissioner Oberly has quieted ma
ny a palpitating heart, and now all isoration
serene and quiet along the Potomac
Work of the District Court.
The suit against the Winona & St.
Peter Land Co. to recover taxes on cer
tain lands was argued and submitted to
to the judge. These are not the lands
that were placed on the tax lists this
year for the first time, but lands that
had been previously enlisted. The
filed an answer claiming the
lands are not taxable, and consequently
it was carried into court. The decision
will be given later.

The company claimed ownership to the

territory had no right to grant same to

was donated by the government for the

therefore the grant was void. The court
took the same view and instructed the

of the damages. This is the first case
