HOY McBRlDE Received First Intimation Here Through Papers of Their Destination. Washington, Feb. 24. United States troom have been ordered to Panama. The war department issued instructions iodav directing the Third Infantry, stationed at Ft. Thomas. Ky., Ft. Sheridan, 111., and the Columbus, Ohio, barracks, to pre pare immediately for such duty. The soldiers have all been recalled to Ft. Thomas, Ky., and will sail- in a few days from New York to the isthmus. Companies A and B, of the Third Regular Infantry, passed through Richmond yesterday evening about 5 o'clock, en route from Fort Sheridan, near Chicago, to Ft. Thomas, Ky. While in this city they received abso lutely the first intimation that they were to go to Panama as soon as they grot to their destination. The Rich mond evening and Cincinnati papers bore the news in I arse headlines, and the papers were eagerly bought and read by the soldiers. In a few min utes the entire stock at the station were sold. The dispatch in the evening papers was absolutely the first intimation that had been received by the infan- trvmen that Panama was their ulti mate destination, although it was thought that something was "in the wind" when the order recalling' them from Ft. Sheridan was received. A rumor was started that they were to leave for the Philippines soon, but the news received here upset all the calculations based on 4hat theory. That they were to embark soon for foreign service somewhere was cer tain, as a notice had been received that the Third regiment would be the first one ordered out on foreign serv ice, but few of the soldiers had the slightest idea that they were going to Panama. As is usual with sol diers some grumbling was heard, but the majority were glad that they were to have a little excitement after months in barracks. One of them said: "There is at least one consolation in knowing that we will go to Panama, as there are three more deadly fevers there than WILL PROBABLY COMPLETE WORK TO WHITEWATER RIVER SOME TIMETHIS EVENING And Begin on Richmond Next Day Holland Palace Car to be Here Tomorrow. j Mr. C. .N. u llson general manager of the C.

Mr. Reid is a native of Richmond and has large in terests here, but lives in New York city, where his business interests are largest. He has won great fame by suddenly elimbing from an humble bank position to that of a multimillionaire, owning large interests in several of the greatest manufacturing industries of the United States and in the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific railroad. He is also director in several substantial banking houses in New York and the west. This is only one of the many, but the handsomest of all the gifts, made by this generous man to the people of Richmond. The estimate.! cost of this church is $100,000. The architects are Badgley & Nicklas, of Cleveland. O., experts in church architecture. The building committee appointed by Mr. Reid are Frank II. Glass, Richard Sedgwick, Sharon E. Jones and Rev. S.

KIND OF VOLUN TARY COERCION Relations of Landlord and Tenant at the Foundation of Removal. It was rumored this morning that Richmond may lose one of the most progressive and up-to-date firms doing business on Main street. The firm's lease is about to expire, and the are not willing to renew it un less the landlord will agree to make extensive repairs in the building, so that it shall be one of the best fitted buildings on the street. Now, Richmond could ill afford to lose any of her business firms, and much less one among the leaders. Many cities are sending out represen tatives with biar mdu ENTHUSIACTIC LAST NIGHT. THE OFFICERS NAMED Constitution and By-Laws Adopted and Chairmen of Committee Named. The meeting held in the rooms of the Commercial club last evening, for the purpose of perfecting the organ ization of a municipal league, was largely attended. The temporary chairman, Mrs. F. M. Johnston, and secretary, Mr. N. C. Heironimus, took their places, and the meeting was called to order. The first order of the program was the report of the committee appointed by the chair man at the previous meeting to offer names lor nomination, etc., this com mittee consisiinir of 75. V. WisTpr. An announcement of great interest in connection with the approaching concert by the Earlham chorus is that in the second part the famous song cycle "In a 161-81311 Garden," by Liza Lehmann, will be given by the quartet of soloists from Chicago and Cincinnati, accompanied by Mr. Clar ence Adler, of Cincinnati. This is the composition that has, during recent years, taken the coun try by storm. It was given a year ago, and very creditably, by members of the Musical club of this city, but that rendering only served to whet the appetite of the musical public, and now that there will be an oppor tunity to hear this given by a splendid quartet of professional mu sicians, it is expected that the church, large as it is, will hardly suffice to hold all who will crowd into it. This combination of one of the finest re ligious compositions in existence,Avith one of the most exquisite of modern works, offers a most interesting pro gram. On Saturday Professor Chase was in Cincinnati making final arrange ments for the production of this song cycle, and was fortunate enough to secure the services of Mr. Adler, a brilliant young pianist, who is fam iliar with this work, to do the diffi cult accompanying. He comes as a favor to his friend, Mr. Edmund Jahn, professor in the College of Mu sic, and without doubt the greatest baritone in Cincinnati. On Saturday Mr. Chase also completed arrange ments for the securing of Miss Cal lahan, contralto, for this concert, with regard to whose singing there come glowing reports. The other so loists have been announced in this paper. The advance sale of tickets, which began in this city today was most gratifying to the management, large blocks of seats being ordered in some instances. The management talks of an overflowing house. The fiVl-otc now sold are at popular prices and entitle the holder to a reserved seat, but the plat will not be open until a week from Monday. For further de tails the advertising columns of the daily papers may be consulted. SCHOLAR, SOLDIER, TEACHER PASSED AWAY AT HANOVER THIS MORNING. PROMINENT EDUCATOR For Twenty Years at the Head of In diana Reform School For Boys. Prof. Thomas J. Charlton, one of the foremost eduea-tors in Indiana, and the central west, died this morn ing at his home in Hanover, Ind. Mr. Charlton was born in Switzerland county and grew vip to young man hood on his father's farm. He was a senior in Hanover College when the war came on and answered his coun try's call to duty. He served until the battle of Chaneellorville in which he was severely wounded and left for dead on the field. At the close of the war, he entered West Point Military Academy where he remained about three years. Prof. Charlton was best known as a teacher and superintendent. He was a member of the Indiana State Teachers' Association for more than thirty years and at times knew per sonally every member. He achieved his greatest professional reputation as superintendent of the Indiana Re form School for Boj-s. He held this position -for twenty years and made the Indiana school one of the best in the entire country. A great many states sent the officers of their re formatories to study his system and organization. It was founded on the West Point plan and was next to perfect in its operation. He re signed this position a few years ago, on account of failing health, and re sided at Hanover until his death. T. J. Charlton was a great soul, a genial companion, a true friend and a most excellent gentleman. In the hotel lobby, he was a central figure who stretched out his friendly hand to greet his friends. His handshake was an index of his heart and made one feel at home in his presence. His life was rich in good works and his memorv is worthv of mnnv tributes. He died before it was I, i . n i j i i , niuc iu j;iuw oiu anu iaKe in sail. Peace to his ashes and repose to his soul. 'flLITICAL Some ""5,Jl " get Mr. I lowers, Mr. Rppvp.

The house committee on reform in the civil service .yesterday heard Wil liam Dudley Foulke, former civil service commissioner, on the question of the retirement of suprannuated government employes. Mr. Foulke believed that if a system of retire ment was desirable it could be ac complished by executive order. No legislation or amendment to the civil service law was needed in the opin ion of Mr. Foulke, who declared the civil service law of 1883 a model of legislative genius.
