Commissioners and Party Em
bark on the Dolphin.
VOYAGE DOWN THE RIVER
Pleased With the Furniture in the
Home of Washington.
LUNCHEON SERVED ON THE BOAT
Entertainment Arranged for Tonight
?Tomorrow They Will Visit Gov
ernment Printing Office.
The imperial Chinese commissioners and
sixteen of their party today visited Mount
Vernon. The arrangements were much the
same as those made for the visit of Prince
Louis of Battenberg. The Chinese visitors
were accompanied by Sir. Liang, the Chi
nest minister; Mr. Charles Denby of the
State Department, and a party of army and
naval officers, many of whom had previous
ly served in China and the Philippines.
Col. Hatfield, the port commandant at
Port Myer; Lieut. Col. Wotherspon, Lieut.
( ol. Leach and Maj. Mallory represented
the army, and there were present from the
other branch of the service Capt. E. K.
Moore. Commander Glenman, Lieut. Com
mander Snowden, Lieut. Commander Fen
ton and Lieut. Commander Washington.
It was a beautiful day. and all of the
officers of the Dolphin were in full dress to
receive their guests. A detachment of ma
rines was paraded in front of the landing
and the Marine Band was grouped at one
side. Eight boys manned the gangwav, and
the party was received with all the cere
mony that is due a visiting representative
of a foreign power.
When the Dolphin cast off there was a
roar from the saluting gun on the wharf,
and she steamed away down the river to a
salute of nineteen guns, with the Marine
Band playing "The Star Spangled Banner."
The Trip Down the River.
All of the commission except those in
European clothes were wrapped In fur-lined
overcoats, but it was not long before the
chill air of the quarterdeck was too much
for them, and, in spite of the fact that a
bright sun was shining, they trooped below,
where apt. Webster, the commander of the
Dolphin, made them at home in the cabin,
and they smoked and talked till the boat
dropped anchor off Mount Vernon. One of
the party was faithful to the outer air.
Gen. Kwang remaining on the deck and in
specting the mechanism of the guns and ex
examining the deceptively exposed old stone
defenses of Fort Washington.
The Dolphin could not gat into the wharf
at Mt. Vernon and the whole party had
to be transferred in steam launches over the
half mile of water. They were met at
the wharf by Mr. Dodge, the superintendent
of Mt. Vernon, and went at once to the
tomb of Washington, where they stood for
a few minutes with bated heads before the
iron gates. Then the iJarty went slowly up
to the mansion and .inspected it from top
to botlom. They were much struck with
the plainness and simplicity of the old
house, but expressed decided admiration
lor some of the artistic colonial furniture.
They afterward visited the greenhouses
and both of the commissioners took back
with them some cuttings of the Ivy from
the tomb. Cuttings of that vine have
gone to almost every quarter of the
globe, but this is one of the few times in
the history of the republic when any of it
had been taken back to Peking.
Start was made back to Washington
about 1 o'clock, and luncheon was served
on the boat, which arrived a little after 2.
The commissioners said that they were
greatly pleased with the visit and with
the arrangements that had been mafle for
their comfort.
Mr. Denby's Value.
Owing to the absence of a number of the
English-speaking members of the party
wiio had gonp to New York, the Chinese
minister and Mr. Denby were among the
few who had a working knowledge of both
Chinese and English, and they were kept
busy interpreting and explaining to the
other members of the party. Sir Liang has
been unfailing in his attendance on the
party ever since they have been in Wash
ington, and the fact that Mr. Denby knows
many of the mission personally and can
talk to them in their own language has
made his detail from the State Department
a steady job.
The commissioners will dim* tonight with
ex-Secretary Jqhn W. Foster. It will be
merely a private affair, but there will be
a number of people from social and official
circles to meet the guests of honor.
Tomorrow the party will first visit the
government printing office and see how this
government gets out its publications, and
will be told what efforts the present public
printer Is making toward cutting down the
national printing bill.
In the afternoon they will visit Fort
Myer, where a special drill has been ar
ranged for their benefit and in the evening
they will be the guests of Mr. Denby at
dinner.
I
The Commissioners' Work Yesterday.
A visit t\> the Soldiers' Home yesterday
was the only sightseeing indulged in by the
Chinese commissioners, though small par
ties of the- various members of the suite
visited the Corcoran Art Gallery, the Zoo
and the Congressional Library. The party
left the Arlington at 2 p.m. and drove to
the Soldiers' Home, where they were met
by the commandant, Gen. Hamilton Haw
kins. The commissioners were accompa
nied 'by Sir Chentung Liang Cheng, the i
Chinese minister, and Chief Clerk Denby
of the State Department.
The visitors were shown all over the
buildings at the home, and a number of the
veterans drawn up to recleve them were
addressed briefly by the Viceroy Tuan Fang.
His remarks were translated by Mr. Woo,
as follows:
"You brave men have Indeed an elegant
home, and the American government must
feel proud to think they can make com
fortable those who have fought and served
In its cause."
The question of public institutions and
public charities is one of the things that
has ooccupl?>d the attention of the com
missioners very closely while In this coun
try, and they will make a very full report
on it to the empress on their return, as this
is one of the lines of reform that will be
Instituted in the empire during the expect
ed regeneration of the next few years.
The visit to the Soldiers' Home was fol
lowed by calls on Ambassador Speck von
Sternburg of Germany and Ambassador
Hengr-lmuller of Austria-Hungary, whose
countries the commissioners are to visit be
fore returning to China. The Chinese min
ister ale- accompanied them to the em
bassies. A call at the house of Mr. Denby
closed the visiting for the day.
A party of eighteen of the commission
under the direction of Mr. Oyan King, the
Chinese consul at San Francisco, will leave
Washington today for New York, where
they will make arrangements for the com
ing of the commissioners and the rest of
their party a week later. There have been
a number of entertainments arranged for
the party when they all arrive in New York,
including a dinner at the stock exchange
and an entertainment' by the American
Asiatic Association. There may be also
a dinner at the City Club though this has
not yet been definitely determined. The
commissioners however are much interested
in ail American municipal arangements and
the City Club and the Citizens' Union will
be In a position to furnish them with much
tueful Information.
Senator Burton's Case Advanced.
The Supreme Court of the United States
today granted the motion to advance the
case of Senator Burton of Kansas and set
the hearing for April 2 next.
Mandate in Howard's Case Delayed.
The Supreme Court of the United States
today Issued an order for the stay of the
njandate In the case of James B. Howard,
under sentence In Kentucky to life Im
prisonment on the charge of complicity In
the murder of Gov. Ooebel. An opinion

Secretary Taft Sends Impor
tant Bills to Congress.
RESERVE IN CASE OF WAR
Forte of 50,000 Men to Be Assembled
on Call.
RETIREMENT BY SELECTION
Also to Promote the Efficiency of
the Army Bands?The Secretary's
Comments Upon These Measures.
Secretary Taft today sent to Congress 1
drafts of several important hills designed to
Increase the efficiency of the army. Ac
companying each bill was a letter of trans
mittal setting forth the provisions of the
bills and giving the reasons why they
should be enacted into law.
One of these measures provides for a sep
aration of the field from the coast artillery,
retaining the corps organization for the lat
ter. The coast artillery Is increased by of
ficers and men necessary for the torpedo de
fenses of our harhors. and attempt is made
to remedy the present Impossibility of re
taining highly trained men by increasing
their pay.
The bill provided for greater flexibility In
the companies of coast artillery. The field
artillery Is Increased by six batteries, and is
given regimental organization. The total
Increase In both* arms provided for is 5.000
men, and the estimated cost for the first
year is $2,000,000. In additon there wull be
an estimated expense of 15,600,000 for bar
racks. gun sheds, etc.. to cover a period of
five years.
A Partial Reserve.
Another bill Is designed to carry into ef
fect certain provisions of the act of Feb
i uary 2, 1901, and to provide a partial re
serve for coast defense In case of actual
or impending war. The bill provides for a
force of not to exceed 50,000 men, who shall
ha\e served not less than one complete en
listment in the regular army.
They are to be enlisted for five years and
to be carried on the rolls of the military
secretary's office, to be allowed to live
where they please in the United States, but
to be subject to call by the President of
ten days each year for instruction, and. on
the outbreak of a foreign war, to be called
into active service. Secretary Taft explains
that the bill provides for a means of en
abling the President to comply with the act
of February 2, 11*01, to increase the army
to 100,000 men in case of an emergency.
The total cost is estimated at about
S2.000.000 a year.
The Secretary says: "The necessity for a
reserve of trained men was shown "at the
outbreak of the Spaisli war. when it was
found to be Impossible to secure men for
the regular army who had itad previous
training, which necesltated regiments going
Into battle at their peace strength. .The
purpose of the bill is simply to have a'vall
able a trained force to immediately bring
the regular army to the strength now au
thorized by law, which would practicallv
double its efficiency and the annual in
creased expenditure for that purpose would
only be about 3 per c.ent of the present
cost of the permanent military establish
ment."
Increased Efficiency of Bands.
Another bill provides for increasing the
efficiency of army bands both In the num
ber of members and In the scale of pay.
The Secretary says the present pay scale
of the playing members of the military
bands runs from $1." to $2J per month,
which is utterly inadequate to secure and
keep competent musicians. The monthly
pay of bands as now organized is. for in
fantry bands $473 and for cavalry bands
: W2. The bill increases the amount of pay
to $781 a month. It is iMrtJvided that the
bandmaster shall receive $100 a month.
The Secretary strongly urgts the passage
of a bill increasing the pay of non-con
missioned officers in accordance with the
principles followed in the armies of all the
gieat powers.
Retirement by Selection.
One bill provides for a system of retire
ment by selection with a view to promote
the flow of advancements. The bill pro
vides that, should the average number or.
1 vacancies in each grade from all causcs
from colonel down to first lieutenant be
less than a certain per cent of the total
number of officers in the grade next be
! low, additional vacancies to bring the total
to the required number shall be provided
"by weeding out the least efficient officers.'
The Secretary adds:
"It seeks to provide a remedy for a con
dition of affairs in the cavalry, Infantry
and artillery, bad now, but certain to be
come intolerable unless a cure is applied.
That; condition is the result of stagnation
in promotions combined with the unavoid
able failure in practice of retiring and ex
amining boards to remedy the evil."
Other bills the passage of which the Sec
retary advocates provide for the organiza
tion of a service corps of 7,000 men, at
tached to the supply departments of the
army, for the performance of work hereto
fore performed by soldiers: for the reorga
nization of the veterinary corps of the
army: to extend special leave privileges to
certain instructors and student officers at
service schools; to authorize commissions
to issue in the case of officers retired with
increased rank; to provide the non-commis
sioned officers necessary for duty at va
rious recruiting depots, and to provide for
promotions to fill vacancies by detail ot offi
cers below the grade of brigadier general to
the general ataff, and by the detail of offi
cers to the Military Academy, on recruiting
service, etc.
DISTRICT IN CONGRESS
In response to an inquiry of Senator
Gallinger, chairman of the Senate com
mittee on the District of Columbia, Super
intendent Stuart has prepared a state
ment showing the present facilities in the
public schools, and this statement was
today laid before the Senate and will be
printed as a document. It was called for
in view of the discussion relative to the
enforcement of the law for the com
pulsory education of children In the Dis
trict of Columbia.
The reports for October, 1905. show that
there were then forty-two half-day
schools of the third grade, twenty-three of
which are white and nineteen colored,
with an enrollment of 809 white and 734
colored, making a total of 1,543 pupils.
District in Congress.
Senator Gallinger today introduced a bill
to amend sections 877 and 878 of the code
of the District of Columbia. Section 877 as
amended provides that vendors of inlik,
mineral waters and other beverages shall
mark their cans, bottles, boxes, etc.. In a
distinctive manner and cause such mark to
be published, and section 878 makes it un
lawful for any dealer to use cans, bottles,
etc., marked as having belonged to any one
else, and such cans, bottles, etc., cannot
be the subject of traffic except on the part
of the person to whom they originally be
longed.
Senator Gallinger also today Introduced a
bill to extend 4th, Irving and 6th streets
northeast.
The number of half-day schools in grades
above the second, where it is desirable to
have all-day sessions, has been steadily re
duced during the past five years, as new
buildings have been occupied and "In spite
of the increasing population," Mr. Stuart
says, "we are in better condition in this re
spect than we have ever been."
Mr. Gallinger also presented a report from
the Civic Center in this city giving the lat
est information available showing the num
ber of children not attending school in the
District in 1906. The numfber of children
not In attendance, based on the whole en
rollment in April. 1906, and the increase in
population ia estimated to be 5.427.
