The Three Important Uaya of the Great
Military Bveut <>r the Preeeut vear.
WASHINGTON, May 24.-Tho competi
tivo drill bogan at lb o'clock ibis morn
ing. Company A, First Minnesota Reg
iment, was thc* lirst compati} to cuter.
They drilled well. The SCOOP I company
was* the Eighth separate company ol
Rochester, N. V. These two companies
drilled in tho SOU tb of tho grounds too
tar from tho grand stand to bo B60U to
advantage. Next followed the Mescaline
Billes of Iowa. Tiley marched to tho
front of tho grand stand, saluted thc
judges sud began to drill. They handled
UlOU pieces well, but were a little weak
in foot movements. They were liberally
applauded. Then followed tho Grand
Kapids Guards, Company A, First Bat
talion Virginia (colored) Volunteers,
Southrons.^ Vicksburg; Company A,
First Vugmia Regiment. Popular de
monstrations iiidicitcd that Hie Vicks
burg mon and Company A, First Vir
favor cf Hie day. Tho competing com
panies were limited in numbers to
twenty-foui men each, with their three
OUlcers and two guides.
The program o? jiurtoitvres was de
livered to >-ucli company's commnndor
one hour bel. ie the time allotted for tho
corps' appearance, and Hie men were
thereby Uept in ignorance of the
manouvres they were to oxcouto tili tho
ordors wore actually given. In general
term?, they were to exercise lirst in the
school ot' the soldier (that is without
arms) then in the manual at arms, und
lastly, in the school of the company,
Thirty minutes were allotted to each
company to complete its program. A
furious thunder and wind storm came up
about four o'clock and put an end to tho
proceedings. The crowds scattt red ut
once. Tho roof was blown oft' n large
part ol' the grand stand and the canvass,
rocks, forts and war vessels, and light
house ot the "Pyorani?" were tipped over
and scattered. The order for dress
parade at ."> p. ra, was rescinded. For the
proposed dress parado commands have
boen organized m provisional battalions,
in which the troops ol thc respective
sections ot the country nro grouped to
gether as far as possible, Kentucky,
( >hh> and I dstrici of Columbia men cadi
form ouo butlnlion; Texas, Mississippi
and Missouri form one; tho Governor's
Guard ol North Carolina nro with Mich
igan and .Minnesota men; tho Virginia
troops constitute a sopando brigade,
already completely m gunized ranier ( len.
C. J. Anderson. Tlc total number of
men iii camp is about 2,b'00, in seventy
organizations. Cue-third of the total
are Virginians. Three-quarters of thc
commands ha? e out? rt tl tho competition
for infantry prizes, euc of which is col
ored. ? our colored companies uro in
camp, two from Virginia and two from
thc District ol' Columbia.
"WASHINGTON, May 25,-Thc parado ol
troops to-day for review by the Presi<
dent bas afforded the in d opportunity
for seeing at tinco lite entire body ol
those forming thc encampment, and wa.1
un unqualified success. Tho wcathoi
was perfect, Washington looked its best,
and the greater part of the populutioi
seemed to be on the lino of march. Th?
arrangements for tho parado wore sea
gonably cor. ploted and were carried ou'
almost to tho allotted 3ocoud uud with
out an apparent hitch or break. Tin
head Of tho column started from cami
promptly at ?2 o'clock ami leached tin
stand erected for tho President aud in
vited guests ten minutes later. 'iib
stand hod scats fox nearly !il)0 poisons
and was well filled, without crowding
With thc. President were Mrs. Cleveland
.Mrs. Welsh and Mrs. Murscy, and Cole
ucl and Mrs. Lamont. General Shoridn
and several members of his stall* in lu
uniform were their escort. Among th
guests of tiie drill were Governor Lee, c
Virginia, and stall', Governor McGill, ti
Minnesota, anti stall', mid the .-bot o
Governor Groy, ta' Indiana, (''... Gov
ornor himself having boon detained a
tho last moment), ?Secretory Endicott
Senators Sherman uni Gorm nu, tin
Mexican ami Japanese Ministers ami th?
ladies of their families, ami a linera
sprinkling of oth a- legation and arm;
people. The troops looked and marehei
like veterans, and were encouraged wit!
liberal applause. In one respect th
programme was departed from. Th
Vicksburg Southrons, with their bain
ami the Memphis Zouaves, brought ti]
the rear with quite an interval botwcei
them and their predecessors. Thc;
formed in fact a little column by them
selves. They had. been assigned to po.-.;
tions respectively in the fourth um
ninth provisional battalion!*, butdrt ppct
tatt of lino because, as their oilicors ox
plained, they wei\; placed immediately
behind tho colored organizations.
Another heavy shower about I o'clocl
prevented the dress parade, schedule
for ? o'clock.

understanding that they would not re

turned heine to-day, The reason is tba

leave of absence beyond to-day.
Tho wt at her was Supt rb to-day. Tin
day was industriously dovotcd to oom

uro making tho work very interesting,
Seven or eight thousand spectators wert

Thc competition for tho artillery prizes

contest consequently was for thc lirst

Tliis is n distinctive piece of furniture com?

Beyond this, Mr. Bells is also accused of
extreme ritualistic tendencies. Ho insists
upon lu lng addressed ns "Father," which
is a title distinctively worn hythe eccles!

Thcsii innovations have naturally produced
ri criticism from the laymen of his
