No mor--> brilliant scene lias e\ 01 ?-? nie.i itself in ? *oti vent ion Hall than that of last night. when 11 if graduates of the ? entral, Kastern and Western High Schools received their diplomas in a trl insularrnmmfncemrnt celebration. Kvery scat in the mammoth hall was tilled with ilt^ fellow* students. thr> families and i > i-mis n! the graduates, gathered to 'i(upland them for their achievement and x*'nil thom Cods peed in their journey *long the path of lift-. At intervals during the exen-ises the Marine Hand, under the direction of l.ieut. Santelmann, crashed out inspiring airs. On the platform were the speakers of the evening, including members of Con gress. prominent District officials and the principal school teachers of Washington. In buck of them, lilting tier after tier, were the graduates, the young women ' 'ad simply in white, th ? young men wearing the conventional black. From the time ?'apt. James K. Oyster, (?resident of the board of education, who was the presiding officer, called the great -ati erinu to ord r until the last strains ? ! t ie closing number of the hand had ? lied away the program was carried out with marked punctuality. In spite of the insufferable heat, the enthusiasm of the fiudiencc was always at flood tide and loud applause greeted the awarding of ilie diplomas bv Justice Ashley M. Gould, as s.n-iate justice of the District Supreme ''oitrt. and the announcement of the prizes .Hid scholarships by Superintendent St uart. Mr. Foster's Address. After the invocation I ad b"en deliv 01 d by Rev. Jol;n Keid Shannon, pastor of the Metropolitan Methodist Episcopal Church, which was followed by a musical .-ejection, ('apt. Oyster introduced, as the principal speaker of the evening. Repre sentative David J. Foster of Vermont. .Mr. Foster called t'.ie Washington high s iiools the "schools of I'ncle Sam." , I'he\ are the only schools, lie said, under the control of tlie general government, and for that reason, he thought, they should be made the best schools in the . ountrj. "And I think they are," he tiddeil*. I think the Washington schools should have the best system ill the world." continued the speaker. "This a mat ter that Congress should take particu ar care of. Perhaps, when we get i' rough with the corporation tax legisla tion. we will have plenty of revenue and ? able to sp< nd some more of it on the , s Iiools. 'Washington should be a great educa tional center. All teachers should come j ier to find a model for their institutions. ' Such salaries should be paid as to attract I he best teachers. The entire nation should * a personal interest in all that per tains to the city's schools. "Our public school system is the cornet stone of our national life. As such Uashington should be associated with the best system of public instruction. I i ere . an be no question on this point. Ij is not a question upon which Congress -should betray any hesitation. Suggests a Motto. "We are all sovereigns in this nation, yet we are all interdependent, owing to I he amazing complexities of our economic stem. No man stands by himself. The education which these young men and v. omen received is one to prepare them to do their work not alone, but in the highest form of co-operation with others. - In return for this training which they roceived at the expense of the city we ask an honest, patriotic, courageous citi zenship. That is? the best payment they * ean give us. As a motto for you graduates I sug gest this In essentials, unity; in non essentials, liberty: in all tilings, charity." ' api. Oyster spoke of the progress tnat had been made in the development of ihe iool system of the District during the ) i?i twenty years and told of the work '1 ?' board ot education, of which he is I >e head, during the past year. No op p'?rtunit> was overlooked by t'apt. Oys - Ier it. the course of his address to point the rieeessrity ot a greater appropria tion from Congress for the schools. Jlo r? toned facetiously to the speech of R? preventative Campbell to Ihe graduates i'i tiie McKinley School on Tuesdav. "Pointers'' for Congress. "Only yesterday." said t'apt. Oyster, T*epre??entative t'atnphell told the pupils at McKinley School that the girls should bo taught to make good coffee Yet lie <!>d lint promise to use bis influence in ' onirics* for an appropriation to bear i expense ot' this special training. Rep ? sentative llohson iecently told the pu pils or" one of the wchools that the schools lould be decorated with American Hags. 1 c m omi*d ignorant of the fact that Con gioss has appropriated the money for one Hag foi each school, anil one flag only. "there is still much tor us to do in o'ir school work. We arc watching <-U>so the methods of the public schools of t i< we.-n, which, during the past few years, lave outstripped the eastern schools in the development of their systems, par r-ularly with respect of manual training ?nurses." ?

VETERANS' POT IS BILIN". Lively Time Forecasted for ljJ. S. W. V. Annnal Encampment. The pf t nf politics of the Department of the District of Columbia Fn'ted Span ish War Veterans is boiling and bubbling right merrily as the time for tlie annual District encampment approaches. The District encampment will be held next month. As to two of the candidates for department commander a rather analogous condition is presented, one of them. Cant. Clarence V. Sayer, is com mander of Richard J. Harden Camp. The other, Capt. D. V. Chisholm, is a mem ber of the same camn. At a meeting of Harden Camp last night the c-ind'dicj of Capt. Chisholm was indorsed by the camp. But ft is claimed by the friends of Capt. Sayer that a majority of the camp are favorable to his election. H is also said that a majority of the other ? ?amps iu the L)islriet a~e favorable to Capt. Sayer's election. \ ,?e third candi date Is said to be Capt. Porter of the Admiral Dewey Naval Camn. At. the meeting of Harden Camp last night William P. Armstrong and J. J Harvey were elected delegate^ to i'.ie national encampment to be held in Sep tember at Seattle, Wash. Messrs. Kessler.

I lie lest of it is that no matter if yon liave been there oticc there i^ al .wavs the desire to go again. It is the trump card in the deck of outing spots. The witchery of the Falls i> never ending and ever varying. I he environment is attractive from every point of view. The temperature of the region i^ recreative. The facilities for seeing every notable foot and every scenic phase of the wonderful river are complete and most reason able in price. The Circum-Xiagara trolley system is a great boon to the sightseer. Then there are delightful little trips into King Kdward's domain both by rail and boat which carry with them the spice of foreign travel. The idea of shifting from the shadow of one flag to that of another by passing an imaginary line is fascinating. Niagara is the nearest spot wh^re both flags can be seen at once, each flying over its own soil. I he Pennsylvania Railroad's route to Niagara is sccnical ly attractive, and its provisions for special vacation excursions are equally so. # t Special excursions are fixed for July 14. 28. August 11, 25, September 8. 22 and Oetober 6. The excursion tickets arc sold at $11.00 from Washington. $10.05 from Baltimore, and permit a stay of fifteen days.
