Washington anil I'ati In iccent
timr arc llie only capital which
have witnessed conflict between
contending forces tor capture. The
present week ha .been a memora
ble one in this city, fince on' Tuc-,
day a monument wa unveiled on
the site of old Fort Steven, where,
forty years ago, J5,ooo Confeder
ate soldier under General Early
were torced to retreat by the Union
soldiers under General Wright.
At one time the city wa in a panic,
and preparations were made to take
the president and hi family down
the Potomac in a steamboat. But
instead of flying President Lincoln
went to Fort Steven and much to
the consternation of the officers, in
sisted upon witnessing the conflict
and abiding the result. All this
took place on the 12th of July
and this week the spot had been
marked by a beautiful shaft of gran
ite raised to the memory of the dead
of the 122nd New York Volunteer.
Many of the men who were in arms
on that day have survived to this
and were present at the unveiling.
Col. C. V. Tracy, who was once a
private in the regiment thus com
memoiated. made the opening ad
dress. It was a memorable day for
Washington and recalled vividly
the trying and terrible days of more
than a generation ago. Washing
ton i destined to become a city of
monument and memorials. It is
now proposed to bring the remains
of Pierre L 'Enfant to the capital,
and erect over his grave a suitable
memoii.-tl. He is the celebrated
Frenchman who, under the guidance
of Washington, drew up the plan
upon which the present city is built.
It has been suggested that a great
granite boulder be placed upon his
grave, and that a map of the city be
carved upon it
Politically the town is very calm
after the adjournment of the great
nominating conventions. Both pr
ties appear to be satisfied with the
candidates which have been named.
Already Republican ratification
meetings are being held. Although
. there is no actual voting in Wash-
gton, thousands of employee go
to their homes in November and
vote wlscre they are citizens. Thi
arrangement enables them to take a
deep interest in politics. It is given
out that Mr. Goiman will manage
the campaign' for Judge Paiker.
Mr. Cortelyou has gone to New
York to make 'arrangement about
opening Republican headquarter
in that city. He is known to be
working industriously and earnestly
and will have the advice of the best
Republican talent in that state.
Naturally both partiethope to carry
New York state, with the char.ee
largely in favor of the Republican.
The President made a good Gover
nor of New Yoik, and the present
Governor is both a Republican and
an able man. There i complete
harmony in Republican ranks, un
bounded confidence on the part of
the people, and general prospetity
throughout the country. With these
factoi there it no such word a
.Yesterday your correspondent
met lit the Department of War,
Gen. A. W. Greeley, of Arctic
fame, Chief of the Signal Corp.
He is tall, thin, very gray and quite
feeble. He steps softly and feel
his way along like an old man.
Duiing iccent 'year he ha aged
fast. The assault he suffcicd a few
year ago. when some Baltimore
tough tried to force their way into
hia house, was a severe shock. The
Gcneial will soun depart for Alaska
upon an inspection tour, going to
Seattle and Sitka, to attend the
opening of the Government cable
between those cities. The General
is much interested in wireles tele
giaphy, ami has ordered a test of
the Fetsenden s stein between Fort
Wiijjht mid Schuyler, in New Votk.
As chief of the Signal Corp tie i
not yet tons intcd that trustwoithy
line of witelcs communication can
he established for long distances.
L'npt. Wihlmaii, of (he Signal
Cuipf, will also piocetd to Alaska
to try and establish wiiclt com
munication between Cape Nome
and St. Michael, across N 01 ton
Sou ml, a instance of ij'o mile. la
prcpeiatiuii for the turning army
maneuvci at Mantissa In Viigima,
Gen. Greeley hasordcreb two auto-'
nubile supply cais, which will l e
operated on the field and road to
keep communication open between!
distant parts of the licit!.
Nearly all the Cabinet officer ,
are out ot the city for a ummer va
cation, and for much needed rest
after a long and hard season of la
bor. Postmaster General Payne
ha gone to Poland Spring, Me.,
and Secretary Shaw is booked to
peak in a day or two at College
Point, Long Island. It it now
thcught that Mr. Gifford Pinchot,
chief of the Forestry Division, will
be appointed Asst. Sec. ot Agricul
ture. He is an accomplished young
man, full of life and enthusiasm and
a personal triend of the President.
Secy. Morton has gone to Chicago,
and will make quite a tour of the
west before returning to town.
The climate and the condition of
the crops are ever matters of inter
est to the Secretary of Agriculture.
He repotts that winter wheat ha
been greatly damaged in Nebraska,
Kansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri,
by continuous arid heavy rains. But
corn has made rapid 'growth and
gives promise of an abundant crop.
There is much rejoicing at the De
partment over a report from Vic
toria, Texas, that the Guatemalan
ant "kills everything in sight.'
In other words it attacks the cotton
boll weevil, and other ant also.
The Department has thought it best
to issue a circular to local weather
observers, recommending them not
to put too much confidence in un
official long range forcast. The
public should be educated to know
that it is impossible to tell the
weather a week, a month or six
months in advance, and that it is
foolish to be alarmed because floods
cyclones, and cold waves in sum
mer time ate piedicted. As Mr.
Moore of the Weathet Bureau says
"Jt is hard enough to hit the nail
on the head in a twenty-four fore
cast." Although Mr. Bryan charge
that President Roosevelt is trying to
inject the race question into Ameri
can politics, which, if it becomes
national will make it impossible to,
t'o considir economic questions, it
i known that the president ha no
such idea. Those who wish to get
a full and fair knowledge of the ne
gro in America, what advance he
has made since freedom carne to (
him what position he occupies to-1
day 1 how much land he cultivate;
liow much personal property and
real estate he own; what ba been
