This is not Idle gosii, but tho statement of Gen unl S, S, lliudett, formally commander-in-chief of the Grand Army of tho en tire covmtty; also ovcominandcr of tho Department of tho Potomac. The fact that tho remains of lighting General Crook, with his sheathed swoid, -will bo laid bcsldo thoso of gal lant Phil. Sheridan on old Ailtngton's green slopes, bcucath tho great sighing trees, for which tho cemetery Is noted, Is bringing Tun Critic's proposl- on to the extiemo forefront In Army and veteran circles. Added to this is tho probability that tho old hero of Appomattox, General Grant, will bo removed from his neglected gravo in Riverside Park, Now Yoik, and rein tcrretl with Sheridan and Crook in that gicat bivouac of tho dead on tho green crested hills across tho Potomac. Referring to this question Major Robert S. Laccy, who stands high in Garnd Army circles, said to a Crime re ported to-day: "Tho faet is not gener ally known that tho Grand Army throughout the country has contributed thousands of dollars to erect a Grant monument, but the matter is resting in abeyance in tho hope that Mrs. Grant will permit tho General's remains to bo bi ought to Arlington so wo can cicct our monument hero. The Grand Army has provided means for a noblo monument for tho old hero, but It appears lepugnant at present for us to uso this money in tho city of New York. All volunteer soldiers, without exception, would fa or General Grant's removal to Ar lington. Everywhere they rebelled against his interment at Rivcisldc, and this opposition was never waived until Mrs. Grant decided upon tho Now York site, livery consistent effort, however, bas been mado since by tho Grand Army of tho Republic to securo his removal. As a volunteer soldier theio appears no place so appropriate ns Ailington Cemetery. I, myself, shall leanest to be laid at rest there when Idle." Speaking of the Arlington improve ment pioject Major Lacey continued: "We should not use the acres for ono governmental purposo alono, simplv because the grounds arc large enough for - ailous uses. Tho city of Washington now lias no extensive grounds for na iades and pageant puipose3, and Ar lington has room enough for everything. By all means uso a poition of it for tho purposes of the Agilcultuial Do paitmcnt, and let tho balance bo used for exposition and drill grounds. Connecting tho city with Arlington by means of a bridge would bo virtually extending tho Mall two miles into tho county of Alexandria and would glvo over two square miles for city and Government purposes. Of this the cemetery now occupies about 150 acres and FortMycr, say 50, leaving ucaily 1,000 acies for these Government and city uses. "Tho beautiful plateau lying be tween the historic Potomac and the heights is capacious enough for oveiy thing needed; but, as a starter, let tho Agricultural Department hayo a por tion 01 me giounuior us uses." Major Lacey Is also heartily in favor of tho Memorial bridge. General S. S. Burdett, tho foimer commander-ln-chlcf of theGrand Army and District commander, was found in his cosy office by a Ciutio re porter. He said: "I have noticed tho pioposltiou being agitated by The Ciutio looking toward tho construction of a memorial bridge, the erection of an amphitheatre in Arlington Cemetery and other pio poscd improvements on tho property sunounding tho old estate. 1 am heartily in favor of theso projects and am certain that tho great body of the Giand Army membership all over the country aro equally in terested and favorable. Tho Govern ment has a plant at Arlington over which It has nbboluto contiol, and which without any further cost for purcbaso money can be made so beautiful as to become a matter of national pride. I am firmly of the opinion that, added to the number of great soldiers already buried there, all tb -a who yet suivivc will be gathered thcie rs one by one they piss away, I am also still of the opinion that, on sec ond and better thought, the remains of the gieat commander. General Ulysses S. Giant, will also be buried in pictur esque Arlington." m Mr. Glnilistono Snjs Ho Is Scotcli, Fiom the I'Mladelphla Ledger . James 1).

WASHINGTON CITY I'll LSI! YT13RY. Another Wiirni Discussion Over tlio Confession of l'ttltll. The session of the Washington Pies byteiy was opened this morning with prayer by Rev. Dr. Hamilton. Tho question aroso as to whether the report of the committee on the revision of the confession of faith, stating what changs weie desiicd, should .bo for warded to the Gcnoral Assembly, and provoked quite an animated discussion. Judge Diako demanded tho yeas and nays on the motion, and tho point of order wns madethat the Presbytery had decided in favor of revision and that to oidcr its rcpoit transmitted was a puicly perfunctory matter. Finally Judge Drake's motion pre vailed, the l oil was called and thoic poit of tho committee was oulercd to bo transmitted to the General Assembly by a voto of 27 to 10.

Tho present opposition to tho World's Fair bill In tho Senate, says tho Wash ington concspoudent o! tho Chicago Jlaald, is In cssonco simply a Wash ington lcnl cstato enterprise. A colcrlo of speculator wanted In tho first place to get tlio fair in Washington at tho Government's expense, counting on tho boom which would follow, with an advance iu prices and tho marketing at largo profits of rm cnormmij interest In both actual holdings and options; This did not work becouso tho fair was voted to Chicago. But, dctcrmlnod not to bo left out in tho cold, theso speculators, whoso interests aro in that section of tho District lying beyond tho limits toward the property which cc Picsidcnt Cleveland Is alleged to havo owned, hatched out a now plan. This first mado its appemanco in tho bill to crcato a great national park In tho pretty valloy of Rock Creek. It happens that Rock Creek runs directly through the section of country In which the syndlcato of speculators ato Inter ested. LIthcr sldo of tho slto of tho proposed park Is plastered with options, which the syndicate holds. If tho park can be created at an expense to tho Gocrnmcntof many millions of dol lars all theso options can bo made prof itable investments. Already the Senato has passed tho Rock Creek Park bill, and tho lobbyists aro now at work on tho House. Tho park schemo Is a good thing for the syndicate, enchancing threo or four fold tho value of their holdings, but this is not all. Theso Washington schemers arc full of resources and de vices. The park plan is not n now one, but the manipulators havo cleverly con trived to turn it to their own uses and magnify Its advantages. This they did by chancing tho namo of tho park from National Pork to Columbus Park, ostensibly out of respect to tho memory of tho great discoverer. Very nicely was this change of namo designed to prcpaio tho way for the biggest grab of all a Columbus memorial nail to cost a million or two of dollars. No sooner was this pait of the plan hatched than Senator Daniel was in duced to Introduce tin amendment to the Chicago Woild's Fair bill, providing for tho erection of such a memorial hall in Washington. Nothing was said about tho site for tho hall, and all talk of the Blto has been caiefully kept In the background. But with a $11,000,000 Columbus Park In hand where olso could a Columbus memorial hall be placed? Of course tho park and the hall would have to go together, and the result would be an unpicccdcntcd boom in all the property lying contiguous to the narrow but veiy long tract wmcii it Is pioposed the Govctnment shall tako under Its protective wing and nourish with many millions into a thing of beauty. So the Daniel amendment was skill fully drawn, Chicago was to bo fright ened into accepting it, on penalty of having the World's Fair bill defeated. Great naval displays weic to bo pio- vided for In the harbois of New York, Botton, Philadelphia and other cities, and It was thought this would catch the New Yoik, Now Enriand and Pennsylvania voto. Thus "tho park schemo would go thiough aud the hall scheme would go thiough; tho co terlo of speculators, who havo their grip on thousands of acres of land ly ing along the valley of Rook Creek, would nil become millionaires in tho name of patiiollsmnnd Chilstopher Co lumbus. Semo of the lurgest holders of Rock Cieck property aremcmbeis of the Scu ate. Another largo holder Is the Vice President, A California Senator has largo investments, in that region, and just at tho moment when his vote is needed iu the interests of Chicago, to which he has been supposed to bo fiicndly, tho California member of the Senate Committee goes home to stay a month. Another member of this coin mitteo is interested to the extent of i-SoO.OOO In Rock Creek land. Thiough out the Senate there Is sympathy with tho Senatorial real cstato speculators, who are numbered by the dozen. For these reasons the Washington syndicate thinks it has its campaign well In hand, and, by making uso of the envious and feverish spirit of New York and the anti-fair feeling in the South, it hopes to bring Chicago to terms. These terms are a Columbus Park and a Columbus hall for Wash ington, or no fair in Chicago. A very pretty schemo this, but tho probabili ties are it will not woik. Tho Senate Committco Is a llttlo tinctmed with Washington real estate, as is tho entire Senate, but it Is still safe to assume that the Chicago bill will in time bo favor ably lepoftcd. ll.ilf-ltulied Congressional Join.

A well-known politician recently gavo nn amusing account of tho diplomatic manner in which James Buchnuan dis posed "of ofllco-scckers and yet sent them away happy. Tho man who tells tho story was prlvnto secretary during tho four years of Buchanan's Adminis tration to ono of tho New York Son ntors. His most Intlmato friend was pilynto fecrctary to BUQlinnnn, and, 1Q spent many liours with tlio President's secretary In tho President's private oillro, In company with Buchanau. Buchanan's manner with tho office seeker was Invariably tho same. A Mr. Smith would call with n letter from Mr. Jones IntioduclngiMr. Smith to Mr. Buchanan. Buchanan would read the letter and say: "Show Mr. Smith In." Mr. Smith would enter, nnd Buchanau, rising, would greot Mr. Smith with tho greatest cordiality. Placing his left hand on Smith's shoulder, nnd taking Smith's hand in his right Buchanan would proceed as follows: "Mr. Smith, 1 believe? Glad to meet you, sir. Friend of Mr. Jones' I under stand? Warm friend of mino for twenty vears Is Mr. Jones. Aic you married, Mr. Smith. "Yes sir " "How is Mis. Smith?" "Very well, thank you, Mr. Bu chanan." "Any children, Mr. Smith?" "Yes, sir; three." "How aro tho little ones?" "Veiy healthy, sir." "Glad to hear It. Have you scon Jones lately? Yes? How Is Mr. Jones?" "In perfect health, sir." "Ah! Do you know Mrs. Jones?" "Yes, sir.'' "How is Mrs. Jones? Chaiming woman, charming. How mo the little Jones children ?" "Very well, sir." "Ah 1 Do you know Mr. Hopkins, an old filend of Mr. Jones'? Yes? Splendid mnn, splendid. I've held Mr. Hopkins as a warm personal nnd political friend of mino for moio .than twenty years. How is Mr. Hopkins?" "KIcely, tho last tlmo I saw lilm." "Do von know Mis. Hopkins?" "Yes" sir." "How Is Mrs. Hopkins?" All this time Mr. Buchanan was holding Mr. Smith's hand and patting him on the shoulder, and Mr. Smith was thoioughly happy nt the Interest displayed in him by so gicat a man. Then Buchanan would say: "I am delighted delighted to havo met you, Mr Smith. Any friend of my old filend Jones is welcome, and I will pay especial attention to your re quest, Mi. Smith. If you will loavo your papers, Mr. Smith, I will look them over. Mr. Secrctaiy," turning to his secretary, "tako Mr. Smith's pa persthis is" Mr. Smith, intioduccd by my dear lricnd Jones aud put his pa pers Whcio I shall eeo them; in fact, mark them so that I shall bo suro to sec tham. Delighted to have met you, Sir. Smith. Remember mo to my old friend. Good moiniug, Mr. Smith," And Smith went out to make loom for some other man to como iu Immediately after, when Buchanan would go through the same sccno with him. Bach man felt suio he had canlcd his point with the Picsidcnt, and neither ever heard from his papeis.
