GREAT FALLS TRIBUNE.
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
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
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.

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.
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
"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 ?"
"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.
