liiivo one of tho cosiest nml most corn
fortaulo illtilnn-rooms Imaginable, and
U Is situated In the north wins of the
ISxccuUvo Mansion, overlooking tho
Bjiacions park and Lafayette" Square,
High ceilings are n fenturo of all tho
rooins In tho Wlilto House, and tho
dlnlng-room fonns no exception, tho
walls being tinted n subdued terra
cottii, which gives a ilch aspect almost
like a mnhoRauy-cnvIrcined apnrlnieat.
In thecontioot tho dlnlng-room is a
massive round extension oak table, the
legs beliijr moulded and carved in an
nrtistlc mrtnner, while leather uphol
stered mahogany chairs are placed at
convenient intervals around the board.
Two wicker high chairo aro also con
spicuous in tho room, their occurinitts
being tho diminutive members of tho
Harmon household, nnd they are al
ways present at breakfast and luncheon
wncnuicre arc mo visitors to be enter
tfllned by the family.
AN INTERESTING SCENE.
Faciugtho cast In this room Is a large
open fireplace, In which a blazing wbod
fire imparts a picturesque and pleasant
appearance, especially during tho crisp
fall and winter morning? and evenings.
On tho mantel ovei' tho fireplace Is a
handsome bronze clock, surmounted by
an exquisite Antlope In bronze, and an
tique brass sconces nnd candelabra
aio prominent on each side of tho
uiantel-plccc. Just oir from the mantel
ia tho cnlna closet In which is stored
1,000 pieces, composing tho famous
"Vhlto llouso porcelain service, tho
-order forwhich was given Jn tho spring
of 1870. As, It was to bo used only for
Stato occasions Sirs. Hayes desired that
it should combino elegance and ap
propriate American decoration. Do
signs wcro furnished by Theodore It.
Davis, illustrating exclusively American
ffiuua and flora, and his success is best
(nown in tiio ioiiowlne: letter winch ho
received from tho White House:
Exncimvn Mansion, 'Washington.
Dkaic Bin: My absence from homo when
the beautiful porcelain set arrived is my
apology for the delay In sendlne you my
thanks. Tho exquisite State dinner serv
ice executed by Ilavlland s Co.
from original designs by you Is uni
versally admired by all competent Judges
of works of art who liavo seen It. It Is a
delight to study tho beautiful forms and
paintings. Ono almost feels as if the cer
amic art should be used for no other pur
pose except to gratify the eye. I conenratu
late j ou on the accomplishment of the task
tjhlcb you so kindly Imposed upon yourself
In the production of the beautiful designs
wliloh have added fresh laurels to Amer
ican art. Slucercly, l.ucv V. Hayes.
In addition to tho Hayes dinner
hcrvico for Stato occasions there aro two
other sets of china in tho While Houso,
ono of which, purchased during tho
Grant administration, is banded with
royal purple, while lu the centre is tho
seal of tho United States an American
eagle with outstretched wings and hav
ing in his talons a number of arrows.
Its breast is covered with a shield,
from which is shown a streamer bear
ing the legend, "E Plurlbus Unum,"
and over the eagle's head Is a constella
tion of stars surrounding a sun burst.
Another dinner set was purchased when
Lincoln was President, and this is dis
tinguished from the other While Houso
china ns tho gold-band set, although,
like the others, the United States seal
is shown on every piece of the service.
Since the Hayes service has been set
apart for Stato occasions the Harrison
family cat their meals in tho private
dining-room of tho White House, using
tho Lincoln or Grant china, as tho
steward sees fit. There is no danger of
a scarcity of china nt ODy entertain
ment in tho Executive Mansion, for
the three sets in use number about
twenty-flvo hundred pieces of the hand
somest table-ware ever shown in this or
any other country.
OLITTEUINO CRYSTAL 'AHK.
Leaving the china closet tho next ob
ject lu tho dining-room is a masslvo
mahogany buffet, upon which glittering:
crystal ware is abundant, and the entire
southern wall of the apartment Is con.
cealcd by this piece of furniture. Con
spicuous on tho west side of the room
is a maeniflccnt sideboard, also of the
finest mahogany, the carving of which
is a work of art, nnd some of tho hand
somest pieces of Theodore Davla' skill
in porcelain decoration are displayed
on tlio ample shelves, ucitcato cou
weby lace curtains screen tho family
from, tho observation of curious out
siders,, and few porsons who have noted
the spry movemeuts of half a dozen
waiters in a long room adjacent to tho
conservatory Imagined that they have
becu so close to tho President's dining
room. A rich velvet carpet of a dark
ciimson color covers tho floor of tho
dining-room, aud owing to Its thlcknesi
not a sound is made by the feet of tho
waiters ns thoy pass to nnd fro In min

Naval Constructor Philip Hlchborn and
Chief Engineer Philip Inch of tho Navy
have inndo tho report of their visit to tho
Nllcs Tool Works of Hamilton, Ohio, to
Inspect tho bendlug rolls constructed by
lhat company for tho Mare Island Nnvy
Yord. nnd nlilch are tho largest In tho
wnilil. The report describes the test: A
plate of steel, 11 Inches In thlcUuees, was
pasted throucli tho rolls, backward and
lorwnrd, several times, and was then bent
to an arc of aclrclowhosoiadlus wasabout
five feet. The rolls wero then raised and
lowered by power flist parallel and then nt
an Inclination ns well us bringing tho two
centre tolls close together, all of which was
done by thn work of ono man. Tho ma
chine has four wrougb't-iron forged tolls
Kl icci in icngiii uriwecu journals, sup
ported In two housings of massive propor
tions, Twoof these tolls arc placed f 11 tho
centre of tho housings, ono vertically, above
the other, They nrcilSlnches In diameter
and are used to pinch the plato and carry
IMhrough, The other two rolls -are-placed
01111 011 each side of (he centie rolls, 'thoy
arc used to bend the plate nnd nro 25J Inches
In diameter. Tho side rolls are so placed
as to move very closely by tho lower centre
roll when the latter Is touching tho upper,
roll. Tho rolls arc driven by a pair ot
vcitical reversing engines, and all tho op
erations of starting, stopping aud
reversing both engines causlo per
fonnrd by the engineer from ouo
position. The whole inachluo Is mounted
! on a heavy cast-iron, sola plate, eighteen
j Inches deep, which is to bo beddeu on a
massive stone foundation. Tho cost of
1 building the rolls and transporting them
10 iuo raciuc uoast is enormous, ami mo
film cannot have mudo much from the con
tract. It enables them to bid ou futuro
work of the same character successfully,
and as there will probably bo similar ma
chines built for at least two uavy-yards

will lose nothing by the piescut contract.
J. J. Garth, formerly a naval cadet, has
had a claim against tho Government for
seven months' pay. Ho resigned Decem
ber 17,1868, from his cadetshlp, and the
leslguatlon was accepted. Later ho with
drew tho resignation on the conseut of Sec
retary Tracy, who was advised by tho
Attorney General that such a withdrawal
was illegal and that tho cadet, having onco
left the service, tho power of reappoint
ment was vested alone in tho member of
Congie.s to whose district tho cadetshlp
was acci edited. Ou July 22, 18S9, Garth
was notified of tho facts lu the case, and
immediately claimed pay for the service
rroin December too my. 1 no Auditor dis
allowed the claim, aud yesterday tho Sec
ond Comptiollcr sustained tho disallow
ance. There is some.dlsSatfsfactton among iho
officers of the Ninth United States Cavalry
over the assignment of Lieutenant Charles
Young, the colored graduate of the Mili
tary Academy, to that regiment. Tho only
other colored officer lu the Army Is Lieu
tenant Oohu II. Alexander, a graduato of
the class'of '87, who Is on duty at Fort Du
Chcsno, Utah, and who Is also attached to
the Ninth Cavalry. Lieutenant Young, on
graduating last June, was made an addi
tional second lieutcnaut, aud within a few
weeks has been commissioned a second non
tenant to fill one of tho two vacancies In
tho cavalry arm. The Ninth Cavalry ofll
ccts legard the regiment as Imposed upon,
when a place for Lieutenant Young could
have been found In tho Tenth Cavalry.
Tho examination for naval constructors
continues at the Navv Dcpailmcnt. From
seven ambitious candidates for appoint
ment as assistant naval constructors four
weeks ago the number has fallen to two,
Mr. Hart, tho draughtsman lu tho Bureau
of Construction and Repair, and Assistant
Engineer De Witt C. Kcdgrave of the
Navy. Tho candidates bad appealed to tho
Secretary regarding the severity of the ex
amination provided, claiming that undue
prominence was given mathematics In the
valuation of subjects. Most of tho candi
dates withdrew on tho Secretary's refusal
to change the examination. The illness ot
Mr. Redgrave will prolong the examination
another week, and tho opinion at the De
partment seems to bo that there will bo no
result. The list of constructors is not lim
ited by law and appointment can bo made
at the option of the Secretary, wth or
without examination. The pay ot ttu as
sistant naval constructor is from $2,000 to
42,CCO, according to length of service.

of color-blindness. The examination covers
a peilod of ten years and ca'unot be re
garded as accurate, since It was only with
g;eat trouble that pilots couseuted to such
an Inquiry, and many, conscious of their
affliction, evade a test that, would dis
qualify them for work. Tho fact that some
attempt has been made each year since

United States Navy having stated while a
member of the Maritime Conference, that
such information had never been obtained

ileal estate matters In the northwestern
section of the city took an upward ten
dency lost week, growing, out of sevoral
large syndicate transactions, the most nota
blo being the snlo of the Richmond Park tract
of slxty-flvo acres. This was accomplished by
tho Messrs. Goblsborough, the figures ng
grcgatlug $103,000, although but n few
jearB ngo tho same pleco of land was pur
chased for $7,CC0. No better ovldcnco Is
needed of the continued appreciation ot
suburban property, and It Is understood
lhat tho syndlcato Interested In tho pur

Into building sites and put them upon the
market. This property commences at Klln
gle's Ford and rnns northerly from Wood
ley l'ark, and Is Just oast of ex-Prcsldent
Cleveland's Oak View.
In discussing the sale Mr. Goldsborough

There was an auction salo of old ma
terial yesterday afternoon lu what Is known
a "The Gold licit," tho territory ou F street,
between Seventh and Fifteenth streets
northwest, aud In a few days a number of
fraiao and old brick buildings will bo num
bered with tho things that wcro. At tho
corner of the alley on the south sldo of F
street, between Ninth and Tenth streets,
thero Is a lot. 37 feet wide by 100 foot
deeprwhieh became tho property of the
National Union File Insurance Compapy
about the 1st of December, 1880.
THK NEW INSUltANCK llUII.DINO.
An advantage possessed by the proposed
building for the insurance company Is that
all tho rooms, sixty-six In number, will be
well lighted ou all sides and ventilated In
tho most approved modern style. No wood
whatever will be used in the construction
of the building, and tho lloors will have
Iron beams and girders, while thewallswlll
be of terra cotta, tho spaces between thorn
and tho floor arches being filled In with
cement. Even Id the roof tho fireproof
will be carried out by tho use of slate and
iron, and the architect, Ulcun Brown, has
made a modol building aud one which
cannot fall to attract favorable comment.
Upon tho F street front of this lot tliero
Is a framo dwelling, and hi the rear Is a
brick stable, tho mateilal of which was
sold at auction yesterday. Contracts will
probably be awarded to-morrow for tho ex
cavation for a fireproof six-story structure
to bo known as tho National Union Build
ing. When the lot was purchased tho
figure pald,.$-i0,000, was regarded as very
moderate, for this mado the slto cost about
$11 per square foot. For an additional
$50,000 the company proposo to mako a de
cided improvement on this square, which
is likely to present a somewhat torn-up ap
peaunce in a few days.
St. Cloud Building, at tho corner of
Ninth and F streets, wjlt join the humble
frame of the lot fu tlio centre of the
square, lu making room for the chariot of
msn IN VALUES.
Frtsldent A. T. Britton of tho now Trust
Company said toTiiECitrrio representative
that laud bought by htm in the same block
for the Pacific Building cost over $13 a
square foot aud that It any of it Is sold on
tbcfqunro for$lSper fooot tho purchaser
will get a bargain. That this Is appreci
ated is shown by the fact that within a few
do j s after consummating the purchase
of tho new site Noble D, Lamer of tho In
surance Company was offered a consider
able advance on tho $10,000 paid for the
"I knew 111 advance," said Mr. Larner,
"abut the proposed Improvement at tho
Saint Cloud site, and this may account for
tho eagerness of my company to buy tho
lot which we now possess. It Is not for
sale, no matter what figure may bo offered,
for we know a good thing when we get It
about as well as anybody else In Washing
ton." These two transactions tu suburban aud
inside property are a fair reflex of tho con
dition of the real estate market In the Dis
trict at present, and talks with tho dealers
indicate a hcalthytone in all other sections.
Northeast property Is rapidly enhancing In
value, and especially since a number of
building permits within the past year show
that tho tide of population is pushing out
in that direction. Comfortable dwelllug
houses for persons of moderate means are
being made a feature of tho Improvements
In this part of the city aud In tho vicinity
of Lincoln Park and Kendall Green, nnd
thero Is a marked Increase In brick houses,
usually about three stories high.
