QhC . ... .. . . .. . . . . . . . .. GREAT FALLS TRIBUNE. WASHINGTON LETTER. From Our Regular Correspondent. WARSHMIGTON, April 8, 1887. It looks very much as if the name of Mr. Whitney will live in history as the "naval secretary." He has just taken an other step towards the improvement and building up of the navy. This was the sending forth of an announcement invit ing sealed proposals from the shipbuild ers of the United States for the building of five new iron vessels. All Americans with yards equipped can compete, speed is an important consideration, and extra premium for extra quarter knots is guar anteed contractors. Three of the vessels are cruisers "and must be completed within two years. The others are to be gun boats and must be completed within a year and a half. It is also required that one of the vessels shall be built on or near the coast of the Pacific ocean, one of them on or near the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, and two of them on or near the Atlantic ocean. There has been a good deal of comment here in regard to the withdrawal from the national drill, which takes place next month, two of the prominent Alabama companies, the "True Blues" and the "Greys," because some colored militia will participate in the contest. It is argued by the managers of the coming event that since it is to be a national encampment 2 and drill, they have no right, civil, milita ry or moral, to exclude regularly organ ized soldiery on account of their color. Tle drill has the recognition of the gov ernment, in this sense is an national affair, and is simply intended to illustrate the I proficiency of volunteer soldiery in the manuel of arms and military maneovres. C The social aspects of the ocasion are quite another thing. Soldiers wt camp on the same field are not obliged to put up at the same hotel, or eat at the same table. s As citizens they are still privileged to se lect their own associates. Colored troops a took part in president Cleveland's inaugu- P ration, they were assigned a place in the 0 ceremonies attending the laying of the corner stone of the City hall at Virginia's capital. The managing committee of the national drill, which is composed almost a exclusively of democrats and southern d men, did not hesitate to admit the two col- t ored companies which applied for entry. And, indeed, it is not quite clear why the a militia system of the country is in any Il more danger from the colored element, which is lawfully recognized in its organ- h ization, than is the regular army, which y enlists colored men in its service and con- P verts them into soldiers. The first day that the Inter-State com merce commission was empowered to act d judiciallly, which was on Tuesday (the day I that the law went into effect) it selected ai permanent office quarters. The next day o it announced its first official act-the sus pension of the "long and short haul" clause, as effecting the entire Southern railway and Steamship Association. It is suspend- a ed for a period not to exceed ninety days, o and is subject to revocation at any time by eC the commission. p The Washington home of the new com mission is in a beautiful new building with white marble front, recently erected by the Baltimore Sun company. Each com ,missioner will have a spacious apartment there to himself. Applications for ap pointments under the commission continue to come in by mail. One applicant writes that he is about to take a pleasure trip to Europe, and that should the commission require his services before the date fixed for his return they may cable him at his expense. When the champion pugilist of the world visited the white house one day this week, it is alleged that in an. ungarded moment he gave expression to the opinion that a series of Turkish baths would im prove the President's health. It was for tunate for the muscle developer that he did not belong to the :Medical Association of the District of Columbia, or he would be investigated for expressing sentiments so in conflict with-the exalted "ethics" of. the medical society. There is in' connection with the ordeal through which Dr. Soweta has just passed for having remarked receatly an aeven b that the .lannser rjlife p rsfed *pr sident wain ager of lukdng St apoplexy. The Medical Association of 4 this city have discussed Dr. Sowers' com ment on the executive's health quite lengthily. Some hypeaethical doctors argue that the president's case was in the hands of another member of the profes sion, any expression of opinion on the sub ject was unprofessional and in violation of their code. ke Loaned on a Poker Hand. id The other morning as the janitor of a ie bank not very far from the Palace hotel t opened the door he was surprised to ob serve three rather tired-looking citizens seated on the steps, the center one of s whom held a sealed envelope carefully in is sight of his companions. .a "Want to make a deposit, gentlemen ?" r- asked the cashier, who shortly arrived. "Step inside." d "No, I want to negotiate a loan," said the man with the envelope, "and there ain't a minute to lose. I want $5,000 s quicker'n hades can scorch a feather." "What collaterals have you--govern ments?" inquired the cashier. ,f "Government nothin'. I've got some thing that beats 4 per cents all hollow. You see, I've been sitting inn poker game across the street, and there's over $4,000 in the pot. There's three or four pretty t strong hands out, and as I've every cent a in the center, the boys have given me thirty minutes to raise a stake on my hand. It's in this envelope. Just look at it. But don't give it away to these gentle t men. They're in the game, and came t along to see I don't monkey with the cards." "But, my dear sir," said the cashier, who had quietly opened the envelope and found it contained four kings and an ace, "this is entirely irregular-we don't lend money on cards." "But you ain't going to see me raised out on a hand like that ?" whispered the pokerist. "These fellows think I'm bluff ing, but I can just clean out the whole gang. You see we ain't playing flushes, so I've got 'em right in the door. "Can't help it, sir. Never heard of such a thing," said the cashier, and the disap pointed applicant and friends drifted sadly out of the doer. On the corner they met the bank's president, who was himself just from a quiet, little, all-night game at the Union. They explained the case again, and the next moment the" superior officer darted into the bank, seized a bag of twenties and followed the trio. In about ten minutes he returned with the bag and an extra handful of twenties, which he laid on the counter. "Here, credit $500 to interest account," he said to the cashier. "Why, I thought you had more business snap, sir. Ever play poker ?" "No, sir." "Ah ! thought not-thought not. If you did you'd know what good collateral was. Remember that in futura four kings and an ace, flushes barred, are always good in this institution for our entire assets, sir our entire assets."-SNa Fransisco Ta,,Wp.
