The Washington correspondent of the
Chicago Tribune Bays:
A shaking up of some of the import
ant arsenal comnaods will shortly occur.
Three of. the big arsenals Rock Iland,
HI., Watertown and Frankfort, P.,
are now without commanding officers,
there are "a number of officers who save
had more than the allotted period of ser
vice at their present stations. Hence
quite an extensive chtnge my be looked
for. There is some interest in army cir
cles to know what part, if any, the new
secretary of war will take in these changes.
Ordinarily they are mide strictly in ac
cordance with the recommendation of the
chief ot ordnance, and if the present
chief, G-n. F agler, is allowed to have
full swine; in the mat'er there is no
reason to fear that the changes this time
will not be to the best interest of she ser
vice. But there seems to be an impres
sion sflott that the new secretary will not
lose an opportunity to make the best pos
sible use of the little political patronage
attached tc the war department, and as
the arsenals and quartermaster depots are
about the only branches of the army that
offer a chance for political appointments,
it would not be surprising if Mr. Elkins
took a personal interest in the selection
of the new commanding tflicers for the
three posts named.
A superb holiday attraction has been
secured by the Burlis Opera bouse for
Christmas matinee and night, on which
occasion Lillian Lewis will appear in two
of her btst plays. At the matinee, "As
in a Licking Glass," will be presented,
and in the evening. "Credit Lorraine"
will be the bill. The latter play hss
proved a veritable gold mine for Mies
Lewis, and from a financial standpoint
her season will compare favorably with
any star in America. "Credit Lorraine ' is
a beautiful play. In point of cocsiruc
t on it is exquisite; in iis characteristics
natural. The plot evolves itself out of
the sc;irn. aud the interest grows
stronger and stronger with each act till
the finale is reached with a perfect storm
of action. The audience demonstrate
their approval of bo'h play acd actress
An opportunity, which seldom pre
