ONE OF INTEREST National Gallery Now Holds Works of Well Known Artists. COLLECTION COMES DIRECT FROM GOTHAM Examples of Expression of All Cults Displayed?Open to Public During March. An exhibition of portraits l>y the members of the National Association of Portrait Painters opened with a pri vate view and reception today in the National Gallery of Art at tlie New Na tional Museum. Last season this same group of well known artists was rep resented in the National Gallery by a score or more of interesting canvases. This year the collection comes direct from galleries in New York, where it lias been on view fur several wee^s. The names of the artists contr.buting arc all known to art lovers of this city, and form essentially the same group as the exhibition in 11*14. It is greatly legretted among art lovers that John W. Alexander is not represented, like wise Adolph Boric of Philadelphia, not to speak of John S. Sargent. There are. however, among the exhibitors one or two members of the association v hrch did not appear in last season's catalogue. All Cults Represented. The canvases in general present a dignified appearance and have been hung with the usual care and taste. It is a most catholic exhibition, compris ing examples of artistic expression for all cults, from those admiring "the offi cial portrait" to those "with modern tendencies"?but portraits all. Frank W. Benson is to be seen at his best in his likeness of Philip Little, a beautiful little canvas, complete and sincere. Miss Cecilia Beaux is repre sented by a portrait of A. Piatt An drew. former assistant secretary of the Treasury. It is an excellent like ness. which was shown, however, in an exhibition of her paintings held three vears ago in the Corcoran Gallery. William M. Chase sends two canvases, the one entitled "Miss N." was with this group in New York, the "Portrait of William Grosvenor" being an addi tion for Washington's benefit. Irving R. Wiles shows a likeness of his beautiful daughter, whom he has painted so often. This canvas shows the young lady, also an artist, by the way, in a leopard skin coat. It is graceful and charming. Portrait of Singer's Wife. Brenetta Herrman Crawford shows a full length standing portrait of Mrs. Ricardo Martin, the wife of the tenor of the Metropolitan Opera. It is a charming harmony of broken color, subdued in tone, refined and dignified. Robert Henri's canvas does not suggest what most persons term a portrait, but It is a bit of joyously beautiful color, i handled as Henri does. George Bellows and George Luke, bracketed so often on account of their "modernist" tendencies, are quite true to their creeds, the former in his por trait of Willard Straight and the latter in his Morgan Robertson. Howard Gardner Cushing sends a decorative arrangement. The back ground is beautiful and the composi tion unusual and compelling. William Cotton's portrait of Miss Do rothy King is lovely in color and the gown and chair are beautifully painted. Eugene Speicher's work is seen for the first time with this group and his portrait of a young woman is a \-alua ble addition. Crawford's Canvases. The secretary of the association. Earl Stetson Crawford, is represented by two canvases, both of young women. The one entitled "Portrait of Peggy as Pierette," is deftly handled, particular ly the textures of the gown and dra peries. The "Portrait of Miss Wood ruff" is totally different and only three quarter length. but an interesting achievement. Charles Dana Gibson's "Girl With a Guitar" is cleverly handled and quite characteristic. Robert Yorinoli s represented by a very small work. "Mrs. W. W. Walker," ably handled and convincing. S. Mont gomery Roosevelt shows two portraits, the one of "The Earl of Ivintore," a lit tle less Interesting, perhaps, than the "Portrait of a Lady." In the latter tiiere are some very pleasing passages and the artist is to he complimented upon the lively little dog the lady holds. Excellent Likenesses. John C. Johansen has his likeness of Alexander W. Drake, for many years art editor of the Century Magazine. It Is an excellent likeness. Lydia Field Emmet's "Marjorie" is attractive. M Jean McLean portrays a little girl with extreme cleverness. Ellen Emmet Rand shows a portrait of H. F. du Pont. De Witt M. Lockrna1 is represented by a portrait of a gentleman. "Mr. E. L. Y." ar.d also a smaller portrait of .Miss D. ' The sain? may be said of Henry Salem Hubhell's "Portrait." In Victor Hecht's portrait of Mrs. L'nterrneyer is evinced a pleasant color sens* and fidelity to likeness. William T. Smedley's Portrait of Miss G is very entertaining and sprightly, well painted :?mJ i.* expected to prove one of the favorites of the exhibition. The exhibition will be open to th*? I ttblic during the mon'li of March. Local Rifle Teams Take Part.

Prominently Identified With Civic and Fraternal Organizations?Fu neral Monday Afternoon. Rebort Henry Harkness, sixty-five years old, member of one of Washing ton's oldest families and employe of the Riggs National Bank for the past twenty-one years, died Thursday night at his residence, 1311 Irving street northwest, following a short illness. Funeral services are to be held Mon day afternoon at S o'clock at the home. Rev. Dr. Joseph T. Kelly of the Fourth Presbyterian Church will officiate, as sisted by Rev. Howard J. Bell. Inter ment is to be in the family lot at Oak Hill cemetery, under the auspices of the Masonic fraternity. Mr. Harkness was born in this city January 27, 1850. He was the son of Thomas F. and Mary Roderick Hark ness. His father was one of the seven original "penny posts,'' who, in ante bellum days, delivered letters through out the city for so much per letter. The Harkness family came to Wash ington at the establishment of the seat of government here. Incident in Family History. Tn writing a history of the family, only shortly before his death, Mr. Harkness relates the circumstances of ill health which forced his father to give up indoor employment and take up the occupation of "penny* post." This was during the early fifties, and for many years Thomas Harkness de livered letters in Washington, as stated, receiving 2 cents per letter and finding it to be quite profitable. At the. beginning of the civil war the let ter delivery fee was reduced to 1 cent. Mr. Harkness, sr.. was in the employ of the Post Office Department for twenty-six years. Robert H. Harkness was educated in the public schools of the old first ward, and won a scholarship to Columbian University, now the George Washing tori University, from which institution lie was later graduated with honors. Mr. Harkness was also graduated from 'the law school of the university, and I was admitted to the District bar, al though he never took up the practice J of the profession. | Following his graduation he became ] a teacher in (he Franklin School. jUater he was with the Real instate [Title Company for a number of years. I For the past twenty-one years he was J a bookkeeper in the Riggs National Bank, and he held this position at the time of his death. Officials of the. bank [speak of Mr. Harkness as one of the most conscientious and careful men they ever knew. Friends throughout the city will remember him for his many dfeeds of kindness done for those who neded help, a!; of which he did with great modesty. Member of Local Organizations.

Enlisted men in the coast guard who have had more than eighteen years' continuous service are entitled to no more than 55 per month as continuous service pay. No increase in contin uous service pay is provided by coast guard legislation beyond the allowance authorized for a fifth three-year en listment. The controller of the Treasury, in in terpreting the provision of $1 per month additional pay for each term of enlistment, cites the fact that the coast guard act provides for this extra compensation up to the fifth en listment. He supports the 'attitude of the auditor for the Treasury Depart ment in declining to approve the atti tude of the Secretary of the Treasury, who approved pay rolls providing for |l monthly increase as accumulative for terms of enlistment beyond the five term peri6d. "The only reasonable construction that can be given to the provision as worded is that $5 is the maximum monthly increase that can be allowed for continuous service," comments Con troller Downey.

This is the lirst time in more than thirty years, steamship men said to day, in which there has been a lack of ocean liners going to Great Britain or since the date when steam vessels with a regular schedule succeeded the old sailing clippers. Cause of Shortage. Strikes in English ports, the conges, tion of freight in the Mersey and the Thames, and the extraordinary de mands made by the admiralty upon the British transatlantic lines for trans ports have caused the situation, it was stated. The brunt of the shortage has fallen on New York. Six steamships sail next week for the Mediterranean, France and Holland. | GEORGE EVANS, MINSTREL, DIES AFTER OPERATION Noted Comedian, Known on Stagfe as "Honey Boy," Succumbs in Bal timore Hospital. BALTIMORE, Md.f March 6.?George (Honey Boy) Evans, the minstrel, died at a hospital here yesterday. He came here for an operation several days ago. Evans had been suffering from stomach trouble for some time, and was under the care of a specialist here last summer. Lately he had been tour ing the south with his company, and about three weeks ago was compelled to leave it at Birmingham, Ala. "Honey Boy" Evans was forty-two years old, and had reached the pinnacle of minstrelsy on the American stage. He was a Welshman, a Cardiffer. He came to America when seven years old. In Many Vocations. Evans In turn was a printer, a news paper reporter, the tenor of a quartet, a comedian and minstrel. He was also ballad singer in the original Haverly Minstrels, with the old "Forty?Count 'Em, Forty," outfit. He was a child then. With the exception of a brief period, when he was with a musical comedy show, Evans continued in minstrelsy. He was giving minstrel songs and monologues in vaudeville when he was given his sobriquet, "Honey Boy." This came from the then popular song, "I'll be True to My Honey Boy." George Cohan brought out Evans as a star. This was seven years ago. "Honey Boy" was credited with being the highest paid minstrel in the busi ness. 25,000 EXPECTED 10 VISIT CAPITAL | Army and Navy Union En campment Will Be Held Here in September. JUST ONE WEEK PRIOR TO COMING OF G. A. R. __ Parade and Many Social Events Will Mark Gathering of Mili tary Men. The seventeenth biennial encamp ment of the Army and Navy Union, U. S. A., is to be held in Washington September 20 to 24, inclusive, just one week prior to the holding: of the na tional encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic. This decision was reached by Gen. li. Oden Lake, national commander of the Army and Navy Union, today, after a conference with members of the council of administra tion. The matter of: holding: this encamp ment in Washington has been under consideration by the conventions com mittee of the Washington Hoard of Trade for several weeks. Gen. Lake estimates that the encampment will bring to this city at least 25,000 visit ors, including members of the organi zation. He has arranged with the man agement of the New Willard Hotel to have a suite of rooms for encampment headquarters from June 1 until Sep tember 30. It is proposed to hold the encampment of this organization of American soldiers, sailors and marines in the ballroom of the hotel. Big- Parade a Feature. " A feature of the encampment will be a big parade, which will include all the veteran organizations of Washington, garrisons of the Army and Navy Union from this and other cities, the District of Columbia National Guard and de tachments from the regular Army, Navy and Marine Corps. It is stated that the stands from which will be wit nessed the final grand review of the veterans of the civil war will be in readiness at the time of the holding of the Army and Navy encampment, so that the parade of that organization also may be witnessed from these stands. The tentative program of events, as prepared by Gen. Lake and memDers of his staff, includes a grand military ball at the New Willard Hotel and a ban quet to which will be invited high gov ernment officials, members of the dip lomatic corps and officers of the Army, Navy and Marine Corps and of the sev eral patriotic associations. There also will be campflres held under the aus pices of the seven Washington garri sons of the Army and Navy Union, a ^pilgrimage to Mount Vernon and per haps an excursion down the Potomac, besides many sightseeing trips about Washington. Others Sought Convention. A strong contest was put up by gar risons of the Army and Navy Union in the eastern states to have the next en campment held at either Atlantic City, N. J., or Boston, but Gen. Lake, be lieving that Washington is the logical and proper convention city of the United States, especially for patriotic organizations, threw the weight of his influence in favor of this city. Gen. Lake announces that within a few days he will name the active en campment committee to be comprised of members of the Army and Navy I Union. and after consultation with ! leading citizens of Washington, he will also name the several citizens' com mittees. He is informed that practi cally th" entire membership of the Army ami Navy Union of Pennsylvania, Virginia and Maryland will attend the encampment in a body. One of the features will be the appearance of venerable (Jen. George Washington Garrison.

The history of the Army and Navy Union dates from March 31. 1SSS. when articles of incorporation were granted for an organization to be known as the Regular Army I'nion of the United | States of America. During the twen ty-six years of its existence the name of the organization has been sul?ject to various changes, in order that all mem bers and ex-members of the regular and volunteer forces of the United States might be afforded a certain rec ognition for their services. The arti cles of incorporation have been amend ed from time to- time io conform with [ rlies.- changes, and in their present j form embrace copies of resolutions that authorized in the'order mentioned the following names: "Regular Army I nion."
