The capital of the na tion is a piopor place, according to the "eternal fitm.es of thiigs," for such an eiiaWisliineut, but there wereot her weighty reiisons in tLe bcale when the choice was made.

There can be found no prettier site in the vicinity of Washington than the pne selected. The plat is the highest piece of grou: d in the District, situated within ten minutes' walk of tho Tenuallytowu electric railway.audattheterminJsofMcssacl.usetts avenue extended. When that thorough fare shall be completed according to the plan authorized, there will be two fronts to the grounds, the other being on Nebraska avenue. Thi site is picturesquely laid off by na ture, and is well buiud to the purpose. At its h'ghest point a view may be had of the loftier structures in Washington, and 'when the buildings are erected probably one-third of tho city can be seen from the observatory. NUMBER OF THE BUILDINGS. The university will not consist of one vast architectural pile of endless corri dors ai.d innumerable halls under a single roof If the present idea is developed, as it most probably will be, there will be not less than two dozen buildings erected, exclusive of the dwellirgs. Troni the rectangle, faced by four of the more important structures, there will raaiate the 6irtet and broad avenues by which communication among the many will be man. tamed. Among the more impoitart of the buildings are "Hall of History," 'Epwonh Hall," "Hall of Sci ence," "Hall of Philosophy," "Hall of Law," "Hall of Languages and Litera ture," "Hal! of Medicine," and "Asbury Memorial Hall." A reduced sketch of the grounds is pub lished herewith. "It is difficult to real ize," said a recent issue of the Unher.Mtj Courier, a journal published in the inter ests of the institution, "that ninety broad acres are condensed to such dimensions. The reader is supposed to occupy tlie po sition or the city of Washington, as he looks out toward the northwest along Massachusetts avenue. As he approaches the grounds he comes fir&t to University circle, fiom which a roadway enters by a campanile into the main rectangle sur rounded bj administration hall, library, it ipel and art hall and lrom this point the other buildings, as shown 111 the sketch, are easy of access " The grounds are flanked by the two avenues named, and from it proceed 1 spective Forty-fifth, Forty-sixth, Forlj seventh and Forty-eighth streets of those known bj numbers, besides Trenton'', Sa vannah, Richmond, Quincy, and other thoroughfares as jet recogiucd onlj- upon paper, s far as improvements go. A large oval pace is laid olf as an athletic field, and ma j remain where it is shown to be in the sket h. though this is a matter that must for a time nmain subject to change. TIRST TO GO UNDER CONTRACT. The Hall of History will be the first to be pat under contract. Within a month the arr'iitects will be invited to submit plans aud from these withiu another month a design will be selected To adjust Uie details, make the contract, select the material and complete all the preliminaries, for the cons'niction will probiblj- con-' sumetheremainderof thesumnier and fall, but by November ground may be broken for the initial building m the unnerbitj plan. It will cost $150,000, all of whichibpaid in. AsbJry Memorial Hall Is to be built through contributions by ministers alone, and will probablj lie endowed lrom the same source. The cost of construction as originally estimated was $100,000, but will probably exceed that amount bj- as much as Sr.u.OOO One half of the pos wble total is already pledged The Epwoith Li ague and other societies or jomig Christian workers will raise $oC0,000Jor the erection of Epworth Hall, and$a00600 ioto beralfcodbj subscnptious of $1 each to iiy for Administration Hall, j which will beinl.onorof andbearthenamu of Abraham Lincoln Five thousand con tributors are e-xpectcd to ghe $100 each with which to endow a School orDiscoverj-. Such are examples only of the many separate aenues through which the Inflow of money is confidently expected. The expense of the scheme as developed is placed modestly at $10,000,000, but so vast are its possibilities It is more likely to reach $20,000,000 and not a dollar be uselessly exjiended. The motto of the trustees, as expressed by Dr. Osborne, tho registrar, Is not to hurrj-, and to avoid unnecessary delaj. "We cannot hasten tlie matter, nor can we penult the project to Ing," he said. But there is an absolute confidence ex pressed 111 the earlj triumph of the orig inal idea. Fiftj years ago it was a thing to be hoped MISTAKE. Club n o for, precisely and with as much assurance as Bishop Newman now anticipatea the establishment of a supreme court of tlie world. To-day the university is at hand, aud the court a nrc'dictlon. DEPEND UPON VOLUNTEERS. The trustees depend, as has been stated, upon voluntary contributions of tho churches and Individuals. All denomina tions arc contributors, but no assessments are levied. It Is by no means uncommon for tho board to receive a check with four figures written after the dollar murk, and amounts much larger are not rarities. A l.uly re'siding in New York, whose name the trustees are requested to with hold, recently bestowed an endowment of $100,000 ior profesborships, which is already yielding a revenue. Within thirty dajs last past notice was received of a l.equest or $10,000; another of $25, 000 was given b Mr. William Thompson, or this city, a similar amount, conveyed in real (state, was donated by Mr. John F. Waggaman. also of this city, and an equal contribution came from a resident of Mas sachusetts The'iuud for the construction of Hall of History was received in dona tions ranging lrom $100 to $12,000, and there are many gilts of $5,000 and $10, 000 respectively. Mrs. John A. Logan is chairman of a committee or women that proposes to raise $1,000,000. The plan is to organise women's leagues throughout the country and proceed by sjstematizeel effort to complete the amount. One hundred per sons are expected to gie $10,000 each, and 1.000 persons $1,000 each, by winch means the fellowship fund and the geu erairund will each be augmented byl.000 000 each. BOARD OF TRUSTEES. This great enleipnso is in the hands of u board of tiustes, numbering forty nine in alL of which Mr. John E. Andrews, of Yonkcrs, N. Y., is chairman, and Mr. Charles A. Baldwin, M.

Trof Aith's orchestra will be heard in a choice pro gramme of delightful music, and the concert will be conUnuous on board or the Pentz and at River View. The Pentz will make three rast trips, leaving at 10 45 a m , 2 45 and 5 45 p m Cool breezes, enchanting country scenery, varied amusements and a sail on the river at evetide are the offer ings of Capt. Randall to spend a delightful Sunday. Capt Randall's season of special attrac tions at Ri er View will commence Stindaj-, June 30, with the appearance or Minerva, claiming the title or the modern Samson. Her feats of strength stem incredible. Among her many wonderful acts is that of lifting eighteen musicians on a platform at one time while the band plays Herr Blatt will alo appear on that dute in his sensa tional act of catching cannon balls fired from a huge fieldpiece with the most pow erful of compressed powder in use and loaded in full view of the audience, under the supervision of a committee selected from them. "Thought in Vere." The leading features of "Thoughts in Verse," by Clifford Howard, of this city, are the variety of the poems, ranging from the melodious lullaby and love song to the deeply philosophical and the concentration of its""thoughts." Manv of the quatrains express in four lines what from the pen of a less finished writer would require as many stanzas. "The Calendar of Life" may be cited as a notable example of the conciseness of expression and concentration of ideas that characterize most of the productions. At the same time there is no ambiguity or obscurity of meaning, each word having been chosen with delicate skill and eare. The music and melody of the verses and their faultless metrical construction ren der the collection particularly pleasing, all the thoughts being clothed in the true harmony of poetic music. Mr. Howard has already a good reputa tion as a writer of verse, and his future in that field oNiterature cannot Tail tobe one of success. His genius is apparent in every production from his pen. Hc-ohablte Vlsltat ion. The officers of the Grand Tent, I.

Statement Editor Times- In your isrue of the 22d you publish what purports to be a report of the proceedings of a meeting of the Interstate DemocraUc Astociauon. I hope jou will al'cw me space to say that the words "swindler," "fraud," and similar expressions were not used, nor did the president resign because he was "unable to undo a parliamentary' wrangle." When the meeting was about closing Presi dent Yoder stated that as business would call him from the city for the next six months, his resignation might be expected at the next regular meeting There was but one cucstion before the special meeting the selection of a club housewhich was satisfactorily settled. The discussion was earnest, but neither "heated" nor "angrj-." Members of the club differed as to details aud were free in expressing their positions, but the best reeling prevailed, and the club will soon be in commodious quarters, readj- to wel come their friends with gcneros Demo cratic hospitality.
