A., nt military nttacho of tub United States Kmbassy In tiOndon, there Is an Interesting story. This assignment la contld crcd In bo ono ot tno most desirable In Iho army, but only oftloern of means can afford to take it, oiinrcount of tho expensive social obligations which It entails. Tho place has been vacant for somotlmr. Its last Incumbent was Capt. O. M. Carter of thu Kuglneer Corps, who was detachod became ot tho iharges concert-Ins hit conduct of tho engineering work In SftVh.inah harbor, on which ho is soon to bo trlrd by a court-martial. Pant. Carter Is well to do and was highly In dorsed. Col. Hates wns a )otitb In the little town of Monroe, Mich. One ot his companions was neorge A. Custer, afterward the gallant Indian fighter, and another n as Ueorge Spalding, whoso fnther's farm adjoined that of Col. Bates's father. One day omig Spalding saved Bates from drowning In tho rher Raisin, to which Monroltes point with pride, as tho stream that gavo a name to ono ot the great battlts ot thu warof 1H12, and It wns natural when Spalding organized n company of the ITrorth Michigan ltcglmont, othcrwiso nnd morn popularly known throughout the Slate a tho Old Smith Guards, that Hatesshould enlist under his rescuer. Bates was a mcro boy, nnd he had servedafow months only when he was appointed a cadet at- tho I'nltcd States Military Academy. That was in 18(11. Pour years Inter, Just at the end ot hos tilities, ho vsan appointed a Second Lieutenant of cavalry. He served on tho Western frontier until lHOI), and wis highly commended for his conduct In engagements with Indians. Hebe came n paymaster In lH7f. A few ilsvs ago Col. Hates ennio to Washing ton, and called on his old friend and com niunder, Gon. George Spalding, now a Repre sentative In Congress from Michigan. He told Gen. Spalding thnt he wanted to bo military attach in London; so Oen. Spalding started out to get It for him. Ho saw Secretary Alger, told him all about Col. Hates, and explained Just how well fitted hu was for performing tho duties of the ottlce. He secured the indorso mrnt of the Michigan Senators, nnd although there wero several other army cifilcers, highly Indorsed, who wanted to go to London, Secre tary Algor decided In favor of Col. Bates, and signed the necessary order to-day nt his bome. whore tho Secretary Is confined by an attack ot the grin. Col. Hates married tho niece and adopted daughter of tbe late Edwin D. Morgan ot Now York, and received n share ot the Morgan millions. The formal designation ot Capt. Alexander Rodgers, Fourth Cavalry, as military nttacho at Paris, previously mentlonod in The Scn, was made to-day.

The Commissioner of Pensions has Issued an order against the con sideration of applications for Increasoof pen sions until aftor the lapse of twelve months from Ihedatoof last ajlowanceor rejection ot the claim. These claims ureaunost nsnumerous as those of applications for original pensions, and Commissioner Evans thinks It will work no great hardship to the former class If they aro compelled to wait a year between for reviews of their cases, while at the same time It will give tho cxnminors an opportunity to ndjudlcato cases which have not had any consideration, Tho greatest cause for complaint against the Pension Olllce at present is the delay in acting upon original applications, and it Is thought the new order villi materially lessen this by hastening tho adjudication of the great number of these cases now awaiting action. Commissioner ICvnns says his published views on the proposed compilation of a list ot pen sioners have been misconstrued. It wns not his intention, ho sajs. lo distribute these lists indiscriminately over tbe country, but. on the contrary, solely to examiners in the fluid to aid them in their work. Regarding the accuracy of published statistics on desertions during the lute war, which uto given as about 200,000. Commissioner Kvans is convinced thnt tbe number is greitly over estimated. It has often been proved that sol diers who wero recorded as deserters were not deserters at all, bnl bad been captured by the enemy or killed in battle, und the numerous bills for removal -of charges of desertion that lmvo boen pasted bv Congress wero men tioned as an Instance, i Then, too, the list was swelled by the successive desertions of the bounty Jumpers, bo would enlist In ono Siato under one name, and, aftor securing the advance money, would disinpenr only to practlco tho same game In another locality under another name. The Commissioner thinks the actual number of desertions von be Bet down at about 100,000. cot., .iionjimox's auccEssoit.. Tbn Illinois Senators Urce tlm Appointment or D. T. l.lltlrr or That fltatr.

The organization Is a branch ot tho Master Harbors' Association of tho State of New York, which Is represented Irt twenty eight towns and four villages. These are the re forms which It seeks: 1. Tho abolishing nt the barber schools. B. Tho ap prenticeship ot thiee years. 8. The receiving of a certificate aftar three years at a barber. 4. Theea tobllshnient of a Hoard of Examiners consisting ot fire practical barbers. 0. All barber thops to be un der sanitary Inspection of the Board of ll-Mth. 0. The violation of the above rules shall be punished. A circular setting forth these objects, and calling attention to tho largo number of shops in which a shnvo may be purchased for flvo cents, w as mailed to 47G barbers not mombors of tbe association by Secretary Gustnv Gross. It 1b proposed to interest In tho mnttor all tho bar bers ot Greater New York, of whom there are estimated to he nearly 30,000. President Joseph Miller ot the Metropolitan Association said last ulgbt: "It Is for tho inter est of the public os well ns for our own welfare thnt we advocate theso reforms. The barber's trade I ono which must bo thoroughly learned, as much as tho ulumbcr's or tho printer's. No inau can learn to bo n skilful barber in Bix weeks, and wo aim to keep grenn barbers from Inflicting themselves on tbo public. Then there Is thndnngerof contagion from tho cheap shopsin which ono towel is mado to do duty for soicral customers. Wo are mak ing no attempt to regulate the prico of n shave, but. If our measures go through, It Is notllkclr thnt a Journeyman who has served a three-years apprenticeship will be willing to work for thu w aires paid in the cheap shops, and they will dlo of themselves." Tho Metropolitan Association was organized three years ago, and at that time secured tho passngo of tbe 1 o'clock Sunday closing law.

TO COLONIZE OARUENT WORKERS. A Plnn to Relieve tbo Cons-ratten In tho Kaat Aide Ilebresv Quarter. It was learned yesterday that tho officers of tbe Baron do Hirsch Fund, who havo been try ing for somo time to get eovernl thousand He brews to lenvo tho congested cast side, uro en deavoring to securo tho co-operation of Meyer Schocnfcld In it colonization project. Schocn fold has been approached informally on the subject, and is inclined to favor thc.plnn. It is proposed to purchase n tract ot land at bomo distanco from tho metropolitan district on which to found n colony of Hebrews from the cast aide, nnd thus to relievo tho congestion in thnt part of tho citv. Several attcmptB havo been made to get tho Hebrew clothing workers to leave tho tenements nnd form colonics out bldo of New York, but they hnvo been fnll-urt-ri. It Is thought thnt with Schocnfeld's assistance the colonization plan can bo carried out. Schocnfcld said vesterdav that he wns wil ling to cooperate in the onterpri.o If a yenr's bunnort wero guurnnteed tu the members of the colony In order thut they might havo tlmo to Htart dlllercnt trades, 'lhcy knew nothing of farming or anything but tailoring. "I could eunrantco to get nt loast. 5,000 to leave New- Yurk," ho Mild, "nnd more would follow. Thcro urn 40 per cent, too manv gar ment workers In the Grenter Now York. There tire 1)0,000 altogether, i minting tho cIohU nakcr!", in tho metropolitan district. Thcro aro muni reasons why Hebrew lmmigrnht1 stay in New York. Ono is thut moat of them hnvo been learning tho tailoring business, of which New York is tho centre. Another is thnt tho riunday law Is not enforced ugalnst the Ortho dox Hebrews here, to that heio they work on Sunday and keen tho Hebrew Sabbath on Satur day, while in other largo cities the Sunday law is enforced ngainst all allko. For these rea sons tho east sldo has become more and moro congested and colonization is the best remedy." ENGINEERS WIT,r, KEEP OUT.

This self-explanatory telegram from him was recolved by Secretary Alger to-day: "I bollevc the nutritive value claimed for condensed food somewhat exaggerated; be sides those foods aro difficult to pack, and tin packages add greatly to tho weight.

These articles possess proper nutrition, are easy to pack, and, except butter and milk, have no extra weight for packages." The War Department heard to-day from William A.
