To-night the Morton Cadets and the Kfttimal Fencibles wilL return from the Memphis interstate, drill, to be honored with a rousing welcome. Their absence has been brief, bat It has brought them reputation; and. while their laurels are .not f the kind that make undying: history, they are merited, and mark an event in the annals of the District Guard, that jvlll not soon be forgotten. The Morton Cadets deserve especial favor. They bring from the sunny South three prizes won in gallant competition, and as they were captured in maiden drills their achievements are all the more credit able. The National Fencibles were not eo fortunate. An error In judgment lost tlMMft tlu hwiioror warning permanent ios sessien of the champion cup,, but they still retain the reputation so justly deserved of TxdBg the best-drilled company in tho country. As was expected, both companies merited the respect of their competitors, and gained tke good will of all with whom they came ia. came contact. They are entitled, for this reason alone, to the esteem of their fellow -citizens, for, after all, honors, titles nd fame arc nothing compared loan up right reputation. The young men of the Cadets and the Fencibles bring with, them what "Washington esteems above all else tho good namer they bore when they left liere and for that they will be honored to night, as well as for their prize -drill Tiotories. THE FIRST STEV TAKEN. The best feature In the resolution pre sented by the Columbia Typographical TJnteB tor tho extension ot the civil service law to the Government Printing Office is Hie request that it be done "on a basis of personal merit and practical qualifications and ability." If the employes of the of fice are willing to enter the civil service on tie same conditions and terms required of others who pass examinations this propesiUon is commendable and deserves praise. There is, perhaps, one thing connected with the extension ot the civil service law to the Printing Office not generally under stood. It will open the way for the so of machines, and destroy the ability- of the Typographical Union to resist their In troduction. Employes under the civil service law have no need of organization. The law is their rule and guide, and from it there is no appeal. The commission, through its agent, the Public Printer, would discharge and employ, and the life time permanency of employes who are com petent and faithful would prevent a general and successful strike against the Intro duction of labor-caving mach inery. As a question of public policy and in-the interests of "Washington and the employes the resolutions ot Columbia Typographical Unionshouldmeetwithfavor.Foralougtime Senators, Representatives and prominent officials have foreseen tbat the reorganiza tion of the Government Printing Office was necessary, on the ground of economy and good service. The employes have taken the initiative and the first important frtcp is over. Their action will no doubt meet the approval of the President, and in time the office will become a part of the civil Eervice system. THE ELECTION TO-DAY. The election in Alexandria county to day is of great importance to "Washing ton. It will decide for the next four years whether or not gambler rule across the river is to be continued, and on this de cision rests the further retention of the thugs and thieves that overrun this city. There is hope for the moral element, but so little attention has been given to earnest, efficient organization that the chances are that the gambler forces will carry the election. Such a victory would be deplorable. The Ehame ot delivering for four years Into the liandBofgamblersoneofthebestknownand most honored counties ot Yirginia would lie lamentable. Not only would it dlegrace the Slate, bnt it would prove disastrous to the national capital. Here at the home ota great government where Co ngressmeets and where illustrious and enlightened peo ple find permanent and temporary resi dences, there should be no such plague spots as Jaokbon city, Bosslyn aud the outlaw tracks. It is too late now to talk of action. The time has gone by when those capable of feel ing the stigma of a gambler's victory can materially change the result of the election. They must stand or fall on the efforts al ready made, and if defeated it is their loss, their reproach, for which they alone should suffer. Unfortunately that cannot be. "Washington is tha field from which the gamblers' fatten, and while we are not responsible for thedisgrace of adishonorable defeat, we are made the Innocent sufferers. GEN. WXLI.IAM: COGSWELTj. The death of General Cogswell takes away from the House one ot the most in teresting and conscientious members of Congress. "While never brilliant, ho was a faithful, painstaking public servant, and it can truly be said that Ms death, is. a public loss. Geo. Cogswell was a member of the Committees on Appropriations and District of Columbia, both ot which, furnish opportu nity tor Questionable legislation. To his great credit his friends can claim that he always opposed measures that had the ap peaiaaca ot schemes to further private interests to the detriment ot the public. As a .politician, he was fair and honorable, never radical or extreme, and invariably kindly and conservative, ; There aro many ouiers of the coming Congress who could hare been belter spared, but now tliat tlie blow lias fallen there is comfort in the reflection that Gen. Cogswell was an. honest, upright public man. CIRCUMSTANCES .EVERYTHING. The attitude of Secretary Carlisle on thesilverfiuestlonnowmaybedifferentfrom that which marked his views several years ago, but it must be remembered that cir cumstances are different and that he Is not at present acting in the capacity of a politicianseeking office. It issafetu assert that nine-tenlhs of the silver men who dependupon votes togivetheiuoffice would liave a Carlisle record were they placed in the same position. Their conduct and public expressions arc guided entirely by the wishes of those on whose suffrages they depend, subject, of courso, to the dictates of party. They are politicians from policy, sycophants from necessity, and generally hypocrites bo long as thoy are public office seekers. But few such, men have the courage ot conviction. "When they do and are able they become silver advocates for the good of tho country, and not for selfish aggran dizement. The present silver boom is a striking illustration of political hypocrisy. A num ber of members of Congress who voted to rerTeal the Sherman act, and who while in "Washington refused to actively push the cause or silver, are now in the country on their knees berore that idol. "When oppor tunity offered they ran tc-:over, but now that they can declaim without danger ot being responsible for legislation they are the loudest and the bravest of the silver phalanx. A close study of the Eilvor question reveals an important feature. It is not a want of more money that creates the de mand for bmetalliuu, but a money that will do away with the" present cumbersome system of transferring bullion for inter national trade. That money must come through, international bimetallism, and our efforts thould be directed to obtain that necessity rather than to bolster up and provide a livirg for clamorous office seekers. Close attention to portrait sitting has given cx-Presideut Harrison increased talking facilities. For District business consult the Ecking ton Railway Company. It is acting as boss or else appearances are misleading. Tho victory of the Senators may not create an earthquake, but it is an aston ishing baseball phenomenon. Evidently the Hon. Tim Campbell wants to retire from independent politics aud get under cover. He says he would like to at tend the meeting of Democratic editors in New York to-night. After its vigorous jingo handling the Monroe doctrine seems to have gone into re tirement. The hanging of Admiral Meades' scalp to the Presidential girdle was a serious aphalr. If you want money to ; a slow race horse. ;o fast place it on A stretch to reach the moon would bo nothing to tho elasticity ot the man's con science who reported no serious lawless ness in Alexandria county. Ex-President Harrison will not pass Grandpa's hat just now for free silver. The income tax returns will not be re lumed to their makers. They wilL lie in the treasury department and bo relied upon for future evidence. The quickest way to beat the gas com pany is to sign the gas coupon and atid your name to the petition for cheaper gas. Nothing but an act of Congress or Provi dential dispensation will get ahead of tho "Washington gaslight monopoly. No one iB ever behind the times who reads The Times. COMING TO THE THEATERS. "The Guv'nor," as prFeiited by Froderic Bond aud company, at the Grand Opera House this weekis a highly amusing comedy aud attracting large audiences at every performance. For the fifth week, be ginning next Monday the company will pre sent the three-act farcical comedy, "Pink Dominoes," which will introduce for the first time with tho comedy company Miss Elaine Eilson. MissEilson will be remem bered by "Washington theatergoers for her work last season in DanfelFrohinan's"Ama zons" company. She has a pleasing per sonality and fine presence and will be a valuable addition to the summer stock com pany's forces. The performance at Korean's Lyceum Theater next Monday nigtit ror tne itfi.i-nb of Manager Eugene Kernan, whose friends have taken this method of manifesting their esteem, will be one or the most complete variety entertainments ever witnessed iu this city. A most unusual feature of tho -performance is that the programme is made up entirely of professionals,, a number of whom come direct from New York to par ticipate. Among the Washiugtonlans to appear aro the "Walerbury Brothers, the re fined musical artists; late of Cleveland's Minstrel?; Mr. L. A. Itoginsla, in his famous exhibition o artcycloidotrop"; George Gra ham., the inimitable monologue artist, late of Hopkins Trans-Oceanic Stars; and Master.

Urigal aud Lillie Ortiz, the Pyseiio hp notic models; Dorothy Drew, the charming little vocalist and dancer; the Heely Broth ers, eccentric acrobatic comedians; Johnson and Mack, the kings of Ireland; Nellie Sey mour, the character vocalist, and Smith and Champion, rerinsd sketch artists. The per formance will conclude with a grand cake walk, in which twenty-five couples wilL participate. ManagerKernanbasarrangedadecidcdly novel entertainment to be presented to his patrons next week commencing with a Tuesday matinee. May 28. The perform ance will include a number of strictly high class variety stars, and will conclude with a scientific, contest ot a limited number or rounds. There wilt be one or two pre liminary bouts each evening and during the week a battle royal will be arranged. This department will be under the personal direction of Mr P. C. Stewart, who lias Euccessf ully conducted aseriesof more than two hundred contests at the Monumental Amphitheater, Baltimore. Mr. Stewart is well known as an all-round athlete, and his wide experience in sporting circles has enabled him to attain anenviablepositionin the athletic world, and his name alone at the head of Uiis departments a guarantee of the class ot contests wldch. the admirers ot the sport might expect. Next Monday evening will usher in the regular annual season ot cotnedy at the New National Theater. "Nila's First," selected for the opening week, is an amus ing comedy in three actB by T. "W. "Warren and formed one of the Wallack Theater repertoire. It was originally presented I ot the Novelty Theater, London, ami en joyed an extensive run. It is well adapted to tho stock company, and an amsisiug performance is promised. "A.

An amusing warfare has been carried on in Paris between the Government chemists and the makers of sausages In which horse flesh has been used. Some time ago the Butchers' Association of Paris strongly advocated a law rendering it compulsory to designate by a label hr otherwise all sausages composed of horse llesh or In which horscfleeh had been mixed with other meats. The authorities, wliile perfectly willing to moke regula tions enforcing this practice, declined to do so on account ot the impossibility of pun Ishiug offenders. To punkh the violators of a law it Is necessary tu detect the viola tion and also to show proof ot It. In the j present state 01 sriennuc Kuowieuge iv. learned his general repurauon tor reiiaDU uot possible to eatlsfactorily determine the 1 jtVt ami rani just now wondering by v.' hat difference between flesh of the horse and I psychological process that sentence got that of any other animal when they are 1 j,,to H3 ueaii or ct embodied In his note both chopped fine and mixed together. A . book. Some one suggested that perhaps chemist finally discovered that it tne meat t wire treated with iodated water a red dish-brown reaction would be apparent it horseflesh were present. Pork and beef do not give this peculiar tinge. The pork butchers rejoiced and prepared to push tho wished-for legislation. The horsemeat men itad a card up their sleeves , howf-ver, awl commenced adding a Htle Hour to the sausage meat. When the iodat'-d water was applied contact wit lithe starch ot the flour immediately produced a brilliant blue, which eifcctuclty maskxd all tracesofanyothercolor. Thin blue .of course, would point to the likelihood of horsemeat, being present, but it could not be sworn to. Supposing the meat to be pure beef and the flou r added the blue wouldbi the same when the test was applied. The chemist again went to work and dis covered that if the starch was separated by maceration and subsequent filtration and the residue treated with two or three chemicals the horsemeat would be detected. So fJir the victory re3t3 with the chemists. and the law will probably be passed unlera the horsemeat men make another discovery. In 1E82 20,000 horses were slaughtered in Paris, three-fourths ot which, went into saurages, so that the Importance ot tho industry may be realized. Ealtimoro Markets. Baltimore.

Ambassador Pateriotre, HeMr..En' " t" .ills, Col. Webster, Dr. Koliy and . c Cupt. Armour Say Nice Tilings. ''The rcportorral blunder In Monday's Times, In which the Rev. Howard Wilbur Ennls wasmade.to reflect on the character ot the Fronohj?i!tpbab'ndor, was au un fortunate occurrence," said Col. Amos Webster, aproHiineutmcmbur ot the West ern Presbyterian .Clwrch, yesterday, "but it has enabled Uiat paper to give a most umgiiauimous land praiseworthy illustra tion ot the JioVioJi'tble spirit that should characterize Ame'cican journalism. Its retraction anl explanation in to-day's issue, both locally'-hud editorially, proved the uiaiilltiehir that characterizes your paper's policy, and- it must increase your prestige in lhe community. It certainly is satisfactory iu the members of the con gregation. l .' ; "I have no dpubl that the reporter was entirely bouesttu the. mutter, butin joiirnul-I-jm, as In ail other professions, mistakes arellable to occur. ltts,;Idom, however, that they are rectified iu the upright way adopted by The Times." The Fiench Ambassador, M. Pntftioire, wltliacharacteristlcshrugofUieahiiuklers, iald at the embassy last eveuiug, that he paid very little attention to the matter, as he knew that there must have bceu a mistake somewhere. Ho declared that he had ueverin Ins life sought a retraction, from a newspaper, but. that the" voluntary retraction ot The Times wus very pleasing to him, as it showed a fair and honorable spirit that, was credited to journalism. fie said he wished the matter dropped, as It was of no coone queuce anyway. Rev. Mr. Ennis himself said that the statement in yesterday's issue, coming as it did without any pressure from him, wassurprisiuslnitsanipliuidc.andsliowed that The TSrues was an upright and fair newspaper. "It was manly in the extreme," said he. "and gives the public better than anything else could, an Insight into your clean and thoroughgoing policy. In this nineteenth century a man looks for fair play aud Is cratified when he gets it. I Leueve tne re,orter innuccut, especially since I have nB nodded through my sermon ami dreamt it. but I trust my sermons are not as enervating as that. It would be un complimentary both to the reporter and to myself. "I do not like," continued Mr. Ennis, "to be included In the category of sensa tional preachers. Neither my congrega tion nor myself countenance sensational ism ot any kind. I lx?lieve in the strong, vigorous preaching of the Word and a. de termination in (he pulpit hi aid in uproot ing the evils that befcet society. Yoo can not handle things evil with a kid glove, for. as hasorten been declared, a kid glove is a non-conductor, and therefore cannot help in the generation of the electric, life saving fluid or honest purpose, which is the death of social diseases. In the pulpit, as in journalism, truths can be told and evils corrected without, going down in the mud, and it is in that way that I pro pose to tell thr one and to do the other. The Times hasshown by its strong editorial to-day that that is its policyy also, and in conclusion let me again thank it lor ita manlv position."
