Wsa.s orTosx, March 25, 1 S7.
When it was understood on Tuesday that
the president expected to make known
the names of the Inter-State Commiýsion
ers that day, the White House became the e
centre of interest and news of the appoint
mounts was anxiously awaited by the friends
of the numerous applicants. The selection
of these commissioners has been one of
the most perplexing problems of M3r. ('leve
land's a:dministration, and it is with a great
sense of relief that the question is settled.
The appontment of Judge Cooley. of
Michigan, for six years, e-x-representative
IMorri:,n for five, and Mr. Bragg, of Ala- )
bama, for two years, was generally antici
pated. I mean the appointments were
anticipated, but the time for which these
gentlemen were appli::ted created sur- at
prise, for it was expected that IMr. IMorri
son would be chosen for the long term,and o'
that the second place would be given to a w
republican, Judge Schionmaker, of New
York, who was appointed for four years,
and Mr. Walker. of Vermont for three, cl
had not been regarded as ,osil ilities. and o
nobody in Wastllington had ever heard of cn
the name of the latter in connection with in
lie is a former law pupil of Senator lo
Edmunds, and it is said that the president nm
having grown weary in trying to construct
a satisfactory commission, and finding it
impossible to get a suitable republican
from M3a1sachusetts, sent for the Vermont in
,senator and followed his advice in Lomi- th
nating )Ir. Walker. The latter was rep- In
resented by Mr. Edmunds as being. a L.
man both learned and practical, of hi-t th
standing and unblemis-hed clh: rcter. Iie 39
was also endorsed as a solid and orthodox K i
republican, which, from 31r. Edmunds, lo
meant that he wx a not a 1laifen man wl

however, that it woduld be impossible for h1a

in this city on the 213rd of l ay, will end on Ti
the 80th of that mouth,. Decoration Day, th
with a grand combination parade of the
National Guardsmen and the Grand Army
of the Republic. There will be $26,500 m
in cash distributed in prizes,besides stands Pl,

special medals and plate trophies. Sh
The grounds of the camp are those ly- cu]
ing around the Washington monument;
and the drill ground is the level ellipse -
lying just south of the presidential man
sion, known as the White Lot. This level
plain, which is is one half mile in circum
ference, will be fenced in, and stands
sufficient to seat from 30,000 to 35,000 will
be erected. The grounds were granted by
the secretary of war on approval of Gen.
Sheridan, and the committee have given
E. terbonds for their return in perfect order af
ter the drill.
S Daily contests will here be hell to
prove the excellence of the citizen soldiery
and infantry, artillery, cavalry. and zouave
tactics. Cadet corps of military schools
will drill for prizes as well as the chainm
pion companies from thirty-six states, and
bands and drum corps will be in atten
dance from east, south and west. Each

and on Governor's Day and on Memorial
SDay the entire army corps from CampE
Gon George Washington will }arade on the
broad asphalt avenues of the city.
