HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL DRILL Immense and Uiitliuslnstlc Crowds Witnessed tlie Contest nt tlie na tional Bnhobnll Park "Hooters" Coered AvitU Ribbons and Red with Hearing Principals and Teachers. Young citizen Boldlers Eeldom perform before such an immense and enthusiastic crowd as that which altended the opening of the competitive drills of the High School Cadets yesterday afternoon at the National Baseball Park. Every cadet must have at least a half dozen best girls, for the young beauties of the Capital made, up about half of the bright and gay throng that .filled the grand stand, the bleachers and the press gallery. The scene was one, therefore, distinctly of color, animation and enthusiasm. It was a bright afternoon, and shades of blue, pink, red and green marked the costumes. All tlie womens portable goods and adorn meuts, hats, parasols and umbrellas, bore favoi-b and ribbons In the colors of their re spective favorite companies. One intense enthusiast bore a new broom which was decorated in an outre style with rd and white streamers. Company B'a "rootara" bore aloft a banner with the humorous device: "We don't sting, we Butts," a plain allusion to tho name of their captain. MADE THINGS LIVELY. Company A had perhaps six or seven hundred of the claque. They were massed at Hip center of tho left section of he seats. Th"ir standard was black and white with a pink square fortho company letter. Op posite llua demonstrate c crowd was the Georgetown contingent with green favors and tny made tilings lively, with the Haunt mgor til" flagsof Company II, of the Western High School. They -were equipped with .1 forest of flag poles, fancy umbrellas, and nondescript musical instruments, with winch thy gave their friends a half dozen or nior ovations. The companies in the contest were D, under Capt. EirclUli; C, under Capt. Som mcr; A, Cipt. Auer; B, Capt. Butts, and II, Capt. Tausfg. The companies, ex cept the last, were from the Central High fechool. The- bonrd of judges was Capt. Constan tino Chnc and Capt. John T. French, of the rourth Artillerv, U. S A., and Lieut, nenry H. "Whitney, TJ. S. A. Company H was the smallest in point of number having twenty-four in line, ex clusive of officers. The people i attendance were largely those interested directlj in tlie contest ants Tor this reason a great many of the teachers m the graded hchools were pres ent, and cbpeciallj the lady teachers. There were besides these quite a large con tingent of the pn-t masters In drills, the officers of the local militia. TnOSE ON THE STAND. Among those noted on the grandstand were Chief Justice Fuller, Prof. William B. Powell, superintendent of the public schools; Dr. Witmer and Dr Hazen. of the trustees: Prof. Lane, Hiss Westcoat, Prof. Allen Day iB, Maj. Barton, Maj Burton It. Ross, military Instructor in the Cadets; Capt. Ojeter, of tlie National Rifles, and Col. Allison, donor of the handsome medal being contended for. There were ten grand events of the day, the coming on and going off the field of the five companies. They were cheered as they came on and again as they retired. The tests .re very exacting and kept the audience interested for more than two hours and a half. jCoinpany D came on first. They made a little break m the stacking of arms, and their alignment before the grand stand was not good. In the manual they did finely, a, also in the eleventh order of the fourth part of the programme, which in cluded the firing kneeiiii and Ijmg down. The volley firing was in unison. This com pany wa& regarded as standing a good cbnnee- fort lie prize. The captain of Company C was out of step with hiscompany coming on the field. The loud cheering that greeted these hand some fell iws nned them to their work. In tho 6eti"g up exercise they presented a symmetrical picture. These exercises were a favorite wjth the grand stand. GRACEFUL FEATURE. It was the most picturesque aud graceful feature of the drill. The marching of Company C was very good all through passing the obstacle, oblique Into line and halt, the formation of column of files. Their first fire was irregular, the rest good. Their oblique to tlie left and right to fo rm line on left was vociferously cheered. Company A's execution of the manual of arms was chee"red time and time again. Their movements in double time were ad mirably executed. Their firing in volley and the firing with objective changes were up to the standard. These soldiers re ceived an ovaliou when they marched off thegrouuds. Cor. b TnaTclred on the ground with con fidence and precision. They increased the esthetic effect of the setting up exercises by throwing -wide open their jacket fronts and giving the white linen a fair show. Proceeding from this exercise to the right and left hand salutes three of the me i had not redressed in time and the alignment was therefore awkwardly made. One of the men in the manual droppedhis bayonet, and tlutcd in rank. The firing in volley by this company was done very near tho grand stand and it was like one gun. They had the misfortune when the order to fire lying down was given to be right in the fine dust near the second base, hut they went into it manfully and came out flow ered from head to foot. BEST DURING THE DAY. The last movements in the drill form line to the left iofonn line on left were not exceeded in accuracy and cadence during the drill. One of the men fell very near the grand brand in executing an order of fours left about. It was a fall from a collision with one of the officers. Company H came on in the midst of a most enthusiastic demonstration. One of the military men on the grand stand remarked that Capt. Taursig was the first of the captains who made the cor rect officer's right about. This company rushed things from the start. Their set ting up excrcte-s wero excellent, th-tr fixing and unfixing of bayonets was done quickly and together and to a man, as was the stacking and taking arms, and the whole manual of arms. In the right and left turns into lice in double time the company was brought Into almost faultless alignment. Their vol ley firing was bad at least the first and second volley. The exhibition on the whole wasgoodand In many respects quite up to the require ments of the regulars. Perhaps the least praiseworthy feature of the exhibition generally was the formation of fronts from fours in double time. This is not an easy movement, but the "success" of the move ment might have been more pronounced. The other movements were far above the ordinary measure of attainment. Tlie three features in chief for those not up in military technique were the setting up exercises, being a military calisthenicshow, the firing, kneeling and lying down, and the marking: time In double time, when tho wholo company puts on the appearance of changing feet on a led hot floor. All or the captains, just before they marched off the field, were presented with magnificent bouquets. There were at least 5,000 people in at tendance yesterday. The drill will be continued this afternoon the companies' to contest being r, Capt'. Grayson: E, Capt. Jones; F, Capt. Sites; and G, Capt. Howard.

Volley Eoolcinir to the Expulsion of tho New York Sciiilnuo'. PitUburj-, Pa., May 23 The Presbyter ian general assembly showed itb teeth and temper to-day when Union Seminary came up in a 6hape in which it could be injected directly without at the came time directly In luring the prospects of the denomination '0. The action in continuing directors of that institution as members of church boards, v. inch was taken on Tuesday and "Wednesday, was not dictated by love of the seminary of the men concerned, but by fear of the results which might follow the policy of exclusion. The policy adopted to-day is the begin ning or an active warfare against the New York Seminary, which Isavowedly intended to bring it to its knees or drive it entirely out of all relations with the church. It Is said that other measures even more drastic are in contemplation, but as to their exact nature nothing cotud be learned. Some of the matters patsed upon were of general interest to the denomination, but the bulk of the work affected the boards of thechurchandthelrmlssIonaryorbeneolent work. The evening session was devoted to the quarter centennial celebration of the old and new school branches of the church, which occurred in the Third Presbyterian Church, Pittsburg, in 1870. AMONG GOOD TEMPJLAIIS. At the meeting of Rescue Lodge, Good Templars, last Monday evening, visitors were present from Good Will and Colum bia lodges. Chief templar, H. P. Thomas, presided.

Diajrrec with the Austrian Theory of the Measure of Yalue. Mr flora ce Mann, candidate for the de gree of B S., read an interesting thesis on "The Measures of Talne," at the Col umbian University, last evening. Mr. Mann disagreed with the Austrian School of Science ou this subject, and holds that the measure of valne is the quantity of labor socially necessary for tie production of tlie commodity. In summing up, he argued that the value of a commodity is tlie labor power em bodied In it and at first sight presents a quantitative relation which varies as tlie values in use are exchanged for some other.

S locum. $10 Suits can be had for $7.50 dur ing great quarter-off sale at M. DYRENFORTH & CO., 021 Ponn. Ave. 1 S Fund Insufficient and fimounts Reduced by1 Forty Per Cent. CONGRESS FAILED TO AID District Attorney Uirney Calls for Information Touching; Grade Cross ings Conl Exchange "VVarrtsan Offi cial "Weigher of Coal Bids Opened for Fnniisliing; Steam Apparatus. As tlie result of the failure of Congrees to appropriate a sufficient sum to meet tho deficiency in the police relief fund, the ben eficiaries of tho system are now receiving but GO per cent, of the lawful allowance. The widowB of deceased officers, for exam ple, -who are entitled to receive $20 per month, now get but $12, and there is no prospect nor method in view of effecting relief. When the matter "was before Congress it was urged that an appropriation be ma do commensurate with the needs of the Eerv Ice, and it was proposed by the District to beartheexpense alone. TbeCommlssioiiere, acting for the people , expressed a willing ness to have the amount asked for, and It was not very large, taken entirely from District revcuues, but the proposition was rejected To meet tho deficiency, Congress appro priated but S4.000, or at-the rato of S333.33 1-3 per month. To this sum is added the oIuntary contributions of tho policemen, which last month amounted to $162, tho monthly "fines collected from tho force, one-halt of the awards paid in certain cntes, and the proceeds trom the Bale of abandoned property and from occa sional sales of Chief Clerk Silvester's history of the Metropolitan Police. With this accumulation the District auditor is barely able to pay the 60 per cent pro rata share of each pension, and were it not for the slight advance in the sales of the book recently the amounts would havo been necessarily scaled btill farther this month. NOT KUrriCIENT TO PAY RENT. There is a good deal of complaint, based upon tho limited resources it provides, ou account of the action of Congress in cur tailing tho expenditures so much below the amount required for payments in full. In many cases the pensioners have but blender means of subsistence, and the monthly stipend of relief is not fcufficient to pay rent. United States District Attorney A. A. Birney recently addressed a communication i to the Commissioners asking for Informa- i tion relative to questions connected vith tho complaint of thu Northeast Washing- j ton Citizen's Association against the Haiti- more and Ohio Railroad Company, In the matter of grade crossings. The Commissioners responded by 'orward- ! ing copies of communications received from Mr. George IL Bailcj , computing engineer, and a copy of tho District, annual report Tff Mitt -ki t rr1itn Innn 'Jfl 1 SK7 Pntl. taining tho only official communication known to have been made to Congress Wion the general subject of steam and street railroads. The report-marked "A," made by Mr. Bailey, refers to street grades, and sajs the present grades are practically the name as those established -in 1&59. j In another report he says: ' "There iS no record of iny established grades of streets ( in the section of the city traversed by the Batimore and Ohio RaiUroad, which -were j in existence at the time the road was built, about 1835. Th original book of gradua- j tion shows only the grades of streets that were built -upon, more or less at that time, about the year 1800, and the grades of streets in the nortlieast section do not ap pear to have been then considered." The Coyle grades, so called, were pre pared after the railroad was built, and in the opinion of the engineer there are no grounds for proceedings by reason or non conformity to established grades. WANT A COAL-WEIGHER. A delegation representing tlie Coal Ex change was before the Commissioners yes terday with a proposition for the appoint ment of an inspector and weigher of j coal, and during the conference a gen eral discussion was had of the system of weights and measures in vogue in the Dis trict. The exchange desires tfniformity in the matter and the regulation of the system to be entirely under District control. The members are averse to exercising any supervision of the work, and to this end requested that a mounted officer be de tailed with special authority as inspector. The Commissioners objected to this ar rangement, but suggested that an in spector be appointed, to be entirely under District control, bnt to be paid for his services by the members of the exchange, and this was agreed to. President Ross said yesterday that the board would give the subject further consideration and take early action. The delegation consisted of Messrs. A. H. Stephenson, Y. Baldwin Johnson, A. G. Johnson, George Bogus, William Laum and Richard Johnson, Mr. Baum serving as principal spokesman. DAY'S DEATH RECORD.

The ad vance guard of broom-bearing Morton bojs was the signal to the expectant throng of the approach of the team, and at points where the crowds assumed the largest proportions the cheers were loudest, and this seemed to be tlie only break in the monotony. The advance companies opened ranks wheu the armory was reached, and the Cadets marched through. The stay-at-homes at this part converted their brooms into torches, nnd bore them aloft as they preceded the team up the line, the bands nnd the trumpeters saluting Capt. Schil ling's boys as they filed past. AT THE MORTONS' ARMORY. When the Mortons reached their arm ory Capt. Schilling mounted a table, and while the member? of his company were receiving the kisses of welcome from their mothers and sisters and other fel lows' sisters, he made a brief speech. He said but little, but It -was to the point, and it was: "Boys, 1 want you to put those guns and knapsacks away, over there in the corner, and get ready to fall in again. We are going over to Freund's, where they have a spread for us." There was a charming table set at Freund's cafe. No. 415 Tenth street north west. The decorations were of flags, plants and flowers, and the edibles were all that could be desired. The collation was given by the Cadets who remained at home in honor of the victory that rested upon the Morton banner, .and plates were laid for eighty people. The boys came to it eagerly and gratefully, and evinced then: appreciation by the exercise of their regulation appetites. Tho reception tendered the Fcncibles last night had more the appearance of an ova tion to victors than of a consolation for tho vanquished. As thoy marched Into the armory their step was as iightand their bearing as proud as ever and well they might be for on every side were hosts of their enthusiastic friends and admirers who gave expression to their feelings of admiration and friendship in no unmistakable terms. On the right of the company as they marched in was Rev. Dr. Domer, father of 0AU1VI w sEvEN st- FREE EXCURSIONS TO BEAUTIFUL TUXEDO.

During their absence the "boys" were not forgotten, and their return was antici pated by their lady friends, who had pre pared for them an excellent hot lunch. The ladies In charge of this special feature of the reception were Mesdames Kondrap, chairman; M. B. Domer, C. B. Rlieem, R. M. McMurray, M.

The tables were very prettily decorated with cut flowers and evergreens, and illuminated with pmk and red lights. Capt. Dorner, when asked how he en joyed the trip, said "Bully never had a better time, and the boysenjoyed it asmuch as I did. Of course, we are all glad to get back home, and who would not, when we are met so cordially bv our friends, who would make us all feel like heroes." Just at this time some one called for three cheers for "Charlie Domer," which were given, accompanied by great ha udclnpping and waving of handkerchiefs by the ladies. However, something -went wrong, jr. rather, right, with the count of cheers, ror cheering for "Charlie" Domer and the when last heard rrorn the crowd was still Fencibles. Gold Lcsislntlon In England.

PLATFORM ADOPTED When the convention reassembled at 8 o'clock to-night Judge U M Rose, chair man of the resolutiona committee, pre sented the following report, which was unaidmously adopted without debate We would rejoice over the adoption of real bimetallism, but in view of the con tinued fluctuations in the pnee of silver in the open market we realise that it is impossible for the United States inde pendently to adopt a bimetallic standard, and we deem it unwise and hazardous to the best interests of its people for this country to attempt its estaWishmenc We favor tbe policy of this country stand ing in the attitude of readiness at all times to co-operaate with the other powers in any effort thev may inaugurate look ing to the adoption of true bimetallism, but in the meantime, and until successful co-operation is assured, to maintain in violate Its existing staudard of value We favor the retention, as part of our money, the silver now coined, and in order to give a wider field for the use of silver we favor the coinage of money other than silver and silver certificates be low the denomination of $10 into higher denominations, so as to make our entire circulation below the denomination of$I0, either silver or silver certificates, and to thi3 end the Secretary of the Treasury should be authorized to coin, from time to time as the people may require them, silver dollars until the demand for money below the denomination of $10 is at all times satisfied. We realize that onr national banking system was adopted during a period of war and that it is not adapter! to exist ing conditions. We therefore favor such legislation as wdl secure to the people a system of banking surrounded by such safeguards as will at all times furnish them a safe, elastic, and sufficient cur rency for the transaction of their business.
