Quarantine Officer Pettus has Informed Secretary Dawes, of tho Hoard of Trade and Business Men's Association, that he will release the Reina Mercedes from quarantine on .Saturday morning, at 10 o'clock. The Mcrrltt-Chapman Wrecking Company have written Secretary Daw..- that they will begin at 10 a. m. Saturday to taw the Reina Mercedes Up to the Norfolk navy yard. Secretary Dawes and his associates have done all in their power to push forward preparations for a rousing re? ception to tile trophy ship, and now tiny ask for tho co-operation of all local vessel owners. All owners of steam craft, largo or small, are earnestly requested to notify Commodore Twohy of their willingness to take part in the parade that will es? cort the . rulser from Did Point Comfort to the- Norfolk navy yard. It is suggested that owners of steam? ers could no doubt, by charging a mod? erate price, secure large loads of pas? sengers for the trip to the cruiser and back with her. It Is also suggested that the Norfolk Light Artillery Blues and Grimes Bat? tery station their guns at some con? venient point on the river front ami lire salutes a*! soon as the cruiser is sight? ed, and salute her until she passes by them; WORKED THE PUMPS.

WOUI/D NOT MARCH BEHIND BAT TALK iN OF NEGROES. Members of the X. L. A. Blues are very indignant over an article which appeared In - j ?11 day's?Washington Post, w hich ihcy stale does them great injustice. Tho article complained of fol? lows: "The Norfolk Blues, about twenty live men strong,who came up by stcim boat yesterday morning to take part in the military parade, refused to partici? pate. The reason given by tho boys for this action was the fact that there was a. battalion ?>:' colon d mi n i:i the line. In making Up the parade liie Blues were assigned lo the Second Division, in which the First Separate Battalion D. C. N. G., was .also scheduled lo appear in the march. This battalion Is com? posed of the negroes >??( the National Guard, and their position was jus; ahead of that to which the Blues bad been assigned. "Upon learning the condition of af? fairs, the commanding officer protested, and submitted the matter to the Blues, who unanimously declared their deter? mination to take no part in tlie parade if the i .dotc.l companies were allowed to remain in the position to which they had been assigned, it was too late, however, to make a change, and the Blues, rather than march behind the negroes, declined to march at all, but contented themselves to watch the pro? cession with other spectators. The Norfolk Blues composed a com? pany ill the Ninth United Slates Vnl tlnti tra (immunes) and are a splendid body of soldiers. They declared that they bad never humiliated themselves to walk jvlth negroes, and did hoi pro? pose to begin nt this stage in their mil? itary career. Th re was no Ill-feeling, but the boys were determined in their refusal. A few returned home last I night, but the majority remained to at j tond the Jubilee events." The Norfolk I* A. Blues did not com? pose a company In the Ninth U. S. Volunteers (Immunes), though they are a spli ndid body of soldiers, all right. The men state that the color line play? ed no par) iti thi ir decision not to pa? rade, but that th? facts were ns fol? lows-: The Blues are proud ami claim they have n rli ht to be. Thoy carried but twenty-four men to the Nation's Capi? tal, and. considering tho magnitude of the affair and ihe large bodies of men parading, they fell that they would look Insignificant in the procession, and for this reason, and no other, they decided not to march. They state that they have no idea where any such report started, ns the Blues' officers were not Interviewed in i regard to the matter.

Secretary Basset: drops their names from the rolls, however, and in sending out Ids weekly reports, announces that so many memberships have expired. When th. y are r. newed he adds them to the totals for the week, and in this way the membership is computed. It Is good'bookkeeping. but some of the ene? mies of tho league would have the pub? lic think the organization bad lost all tho members who did not rertew Imme? diately, Instead of taking His sixty days. The league oilleials do not expect to have the membership rolls show an In? crease until tho 1st of Juno at least, on account of these lapses of membership, but from that time on it has been found that the memberships are again taken up In almost as largo numbers as when going out. These added to the new ap? plications will make a very satisfactory showing. OTHER LOCAL ON PAGE 3.
