Wood, coloitd, was before Judge Miller yesterday on three charges assault on Ida Gray, alto colored; larceny of nineteen Loxes of strawberries from Charles Duckett, and with Ida Gray, violating the Edmunds act. The assault charge was heard first. The woman told the court Wood, with whom she had been living, had struck her in the face without provocation. 4 Wood, in his own behalf, said he had procured a marriage license, and wucn he went home he showed it to his in tended wife, who proceeded to tear it to pieces. He then struck her with the palm of his hand. He was fined S5. In the Edmunds act case the judge released Wood and the woman on their personal bonds. In the larceny case it was stated by the complainant that Wood had been given the strawberries to sell, but had failed to turn over the proceeds of the sale. Judge .Miller decided that larceny had not been proven, as it was embezzlement, and dismissed the case. Overcome by tlie Heat. Fjank A.

DRESS I'ARADE IN THE CITY If the TV earlier PermltM the Hoyis "Will Show What They Have learned. District Coiuinhsstonoi-M "Vinlt the SoIdiorH All the Work ot the Encampment Cleared Up. Two or tho District Commissioners cap tured Camp Washington yesterday after noon. They canio aboard the Joe Blaclv burn, and were wn started up -the hill when Major Harries met them. . They ware Messrs. Truesdell and Ross. The exterior guard turned out and tlie ambulance was sent for. These gentlemen are entitled to the salute accorded a gov ernor in any of the Stales. The visit was informal, though. They were taken through camp, saw tlie dress parade and visited everything of interest. Of course, they were pleased. They couldn't be anything else. They dined at headquarters and were not stingy of praise. It was tho last day in camp but a stranger would not have known it. Drills were pushed right along in the morning, the men ge'tting down to battalion drllL The day was hot. it being very close. In the afternoon Gen Ordway excused the in fant ry from drill and nothing was done dur ing the afternoon by them. The artillery drill at 4 o'clock was the event of the afternoon and nearly all the camp was to see. The "ping" "ping" of tho gatling guns made things inteiestmg fora while. One of the guns became clogged but barring thla thre was not a break. The countermarching of te battery was very fine. Tlie men were lonni d in bounds at tlie heads of the horse?. They took post by bugle calls a'logether. There was not a hitch. Tlie oblique marching and align ments were very fine. Many officers who had seen the battery drill before noticed the great improvement. Tlie battery haves at & o'clock this morning and will reach the city about 4 p. m. DUESS PARADE ritOMISED. Weather permitting the citizens of the city will have a treat on the White House lot this afternoon. The bojs'lrom Camp Wash ngton will be on dress parade about 4.30 and colors will be trecped. No member of any command who has bten abient from camp will be i.eimitted to fall in at the wharf. All the glory mutt go to the boys who have worked eo hard . A prettier tight will not be seen here again soon. The boys are right up Jn their drill and present a fine appearance. No better dress parade can be put up by any com mand in the country. There will be no guard mount at camp this morning. At 9 o'clock the "general" will be sounded, but tlnre will be no attempt to drop all the tents at once. They will be struck by battailous. Owing to the small lacihties lor moving baggage this must be done. The luggage from each battalion will be taken to the wharf in order, and when that is down "the assembly" will be sounded. The t loops expect to leave about 2 30 o'clock, but it may be later. The City of Richmond will carry the bag gage and the Macalcster the troops. The post commissary is clean. .Major Ncumeycr issued ice, milk and bread yes terday and then cleaned tip. He and Cupt. Parmenter will remain in camp until Sunday evening, getting things straightened up. He will be assisted by Lieut. Kin.1; and a gang of twenty laLorera. The quartermasters will all come to the city with tho troops. Great preparations were made for a quiet night. The last night in camp is usually a lively one. Arrangements were made to guard every sticet, and if neces sary the artillery was to be mounted as cavalry. All tho staff were ready for a night's duty. At the wharf orders had been given that no row boats should go to River View or other places except on the writ ten order of Gen. Ordway. All soldiers having passes were orde'red to go and come on the steam launch Lovie Randall The guard on duty is a good one Com pany D, of the Fourth, Ordway Rifles. Capt. Williams was officer of the day, Lieut. Stephen, officer of the guard, and Lieut. Richmond, junior officer of the guard. Their guard mount was excellent, and the boys gave them a round of applause. They went prepared for a hard night. SECOND REGIMENT OFFICERS. In the Second Regiment Lieut. Danfortii was officer of the day, and James M. Fair ley officer of the guard. Second Lieut. Brown, Company C, Sixth, mounted guard in placeof Acting Adjt. Smith, whosprained his ankle going for a doctor during tho night. In the First Regiment Lieut. Burchard, Company C, Third Battalion, was officer of the day, and Lieut. Flagg, officer of the guard. The meeting of the Officers' Associa tion of the Second Regiment was a great success. Tlie speech of Gen. Ordway was listened to with great attention. It was built on the idea that the citizen soldier is the keystone of the Republic's safety. Adjt. Hodgson, of the Fourth, mado the hit of the evening by paraphrasing the famous lines to George "Washington, "First in war, first in peace, first in the hearts of his countrymen," to "The National Guard First in peace, first in war, and last in the hearts of Congressmen." Lieut. Mel lach, who was officer of the clay, also caused much merriment by offering to arrest the glee club. Late Thursday night Lieut.

Informs Columbia llailroad Emploj-es The- May Join tho Union. A committee representing the employes of the Columbia Railway called on President Baker yesterday, pursuant to instructions, and placed berore hlra a complete state ment of the reasons that actuated the men: in joining the Protective Street Railway Union. The men had been incidentally notified ! not to connect themselves wnh -the organ ization, but, under the impression that President Baker would approve of taeir action when properly understood by hhn, they disregarded the injunction and about fifty of them went in a body to the union Thursday night with a notice in their pockets requiring them to meet Mr. Baker with an explanation. The connmttc? stated to the president that they wurc influenced by a desire for mutual benefit and protection. In join ing, the organization they were not In any sense antagonizing the interests of the company, nor did they desire, to bo understood ns ignoring his wishes; but be lieving that the union afforded advan tages which they, as citizens had a right to acquire as a means of bettering their ! condition, they had joined It. President Baker received the committee most cordially, and, after hearing the statement, expressed himself as perfectly satisfied. He said he had no objections to offer, and that the employes of the road might feel at liberty to act according to their own judgment in the matter. I The president of tlie union is Mr. Thomas J.

Camp McChesney, Front Royal,.Va., June 21st, 1S95. Both man and beast had a glorious day of rest yesterday. Absolutely nothing was required of the men except to groom and feed their horses, and perform the Trccessary police and guard duty. As for the. horses all that was required of them was to eat their feed, which they did with evident relish. The camp, although without shade. Is a perfect one in other respects, and is In close proxmity to Happy Creek, where an abundance of mountain water can be had. Tho arrival and stay of the troop has greatly interested every one of the fifteen hundred inhabitants of Front Royal, and then are few of tbem who have not visited it. Sine tlie war. tbta is the first visit of Yankee soldiers to this place, and naturally, among those okl enougn vo have participated in tb straggle, the presence of tho troopers recalls many pleasant and some unpleasant meruories. What the men did not know about the war the vis itors to camp told them, arid all day groups of interested troopers listened to stories of cavalry raids, etc. The boys -were again and again reminded that there was a time when the uniform which they wore had been accorded a very different reception from that of Wednesday. The wagon or the Independent Ice Co., kindly placed at tho disposal of the troop for use a3 a canteen, was an. object of especial attention, not only on account of its handsome exterior, but also because of its attractive and refreshing contents. "Buck" Taylor is in charge ot these contents, and is one of the busiest men in camp. The manner m wnlch he cau keep tab on the boys is surprising. RECRUITS WANT TO JOIN. Another man wlm has not had much rest is Trumpeter Carroll, an old cam paigner, who, besides all his regular duties, has been detailed to cater to the wants of the officers. So far he has been success ful in pleasing them all. But where all have done so well and worked so bard It is not necessary to make special mention of any one in particular. The guard detail last night, consisting of Scrgt. Carpenter. Corporal Taylor, and Privates Jeunings, Macias and Ruppert, was a particularly efficient one. for upon the count of the stock this morning the command had gained one horse. Upon Investigation it was ascertained that during the night a loose horse was discovered in camp, was captured and tied up by the sentry. When he was lo catedthismominghe was given hlsfreedom. It is a very hard thing to get the resi dents of the country through which the troop has passed to believe that it does not belong to the regular army. At every camp yet made at least one, and on one occasion three, applicants for enlistment presented themselves. Col. Gordon, commanding Fort Myer, may like to know that there is a fine field for recruiting throughout the greater portion of the route traveled by the troop. The men aro strong and active, have been accustomed to a life in the saddle from children, and are thoroughly familiar with the handling and care of the horse. What better material could be desired for the "Galloping Sixth?"- During the march Corporal Eubank had a batli in an unexpected manner. In crossing a cool river the captain had water call sounded, and Corporal Eubank on his fiery steed promptly plunged into the deepest part of the stream. The horse enjoyed the experience bqt wanted more, and withotrf a word of warning sank to his knees and rolled over. Corporal Eubank was immersed, and now knows more of the efficacy of the spur under certain circumstances than lie did before his bath. The scenerj on the road from Warrenton here is magnificent, the grandeur and beauty of Manassas Gap being particularly so. Although the road was hilly and rough the wagons made good time and kept close up to the column. HOW 1TIE TOWN GOT ITS NAME. Front Royal Is an interesting place, and, although at present it is a pioluhition town, there was a time when liquor was more plentiful than water. In fart, the town received its name from an old Brit ish ex-soldier named Andrew Forsythe, who whenever he got drunk, which was very often, insisted in calling-'the as yet unnamed settlement Front Royal, and in 1788 the town was mcotporated under that name. u ... That there has heen af boom that did orry HIVE. SALE, $20.00. $18.00. $10.00. SALE, SALE, $7.50. not last is everywhere apparent. Long rows of neat, well-built tdtteineat houses are standing vacant, while tha (loots of a piano manufactory, erected at a cost ot S18.000; a furniture, wagon and tact manufactory, all three handsome build ings, are closed. This tells the visitor of the failure of the 1880 boom. Capt. Barbour himself is part owner of the ground on which the camp is located, and is now getting probably the only return for his Invest ment. Capt. Irving A. Buck called to see toe boys, his beautiful and historic residence, built in 1795. being just across toe road from camp. He was adjutant general on Major Gen. P. R. Cleburne's staff, and has in bis possession the original report of that officer of the cattle of Pickett Settlement. May 27, 1804. Another most interesting paper in Capt. Buck's collection ot valuable war records is Gen. Beauregard's original report of the battle of Manassas, or first battle of Bull Run. July 21. 1861. This report b in Capt. Buck's own writing and signed by Gen. Beauregard. At the time ot the battle referred to Capt. Buck was clerk at the general's headquarters. The ram crow perched himself upon a tree in the vicinity of the camp yesterday and made its plaintive cry for rain, which is now not far off. so that it is likely the troop will have a taste of the kind ot weather to which since its organiza tion it bas been so accustomed. UNIQUE BASEBALL. Several hundred of the residents, among whom were many of the beautiful girls Xor which Front Royal is so famous, turned out ba-b: Ltween the Front Royal nine and yesterday afternoon to witness a game of a nine trusx the President's Troop. Capt Barbour and many others were surprisedat the audacity of the baseball cranks in attempting, the day after a thirty-one mile march to tackle a team which has quite a reputation for good playing around here But it was only one other instance of the pluck and endurance or tbe troopers, and. if they did not win, they had lots of fun and furnished a great deal ot amusement to their opponents and the spectators. They bad never played together, and if the error column was printed it might be surmised that some of them had never played a game in their lives. The local team went first to bat. awl JC was quickly apparent from tbe start that tbe soldier boys were going to get badly whipped. Even the whispered threats of the captain, woo was an interested spectator, stating he would give the troops' repre sentatives all sorts of extra doty to per form If they lost the game, failed to pot that ginger in them necessary to win it. The playing of Leslie and Stooffer was unique. Tbe former, however, surprised himself and everybody else by bokttng on to a high fly from the bat of one of the Front Royal men. Poetziuann was a stone wall at first base, and allowed noth ing to get past him which came his way. while Mat Carpenter's work at second was first-class.
