GOVERNMENT OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.

The municipal government of the District of Columbia is vested by act of Congress approved June 11, 1878, in three Commissioners, two of whom are appointed by the President from citizens of the District having had three years' residence therein immediately preceding that appointment, and confirmed by the Senate. The other Commissioner is detailed by the President of the United States from the Corps of Engineers of the United States Army, and must have lineal rank senior to Captain, or be a Captain who has served at least fifteen years in the Corps of Engineers of the Army. The Commissioners appoint the subordinate oficial service of said government, except the Board of Education which is appointed by the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia. The present Commissioners are H. B. F. Macfarland (Republican), President, whose term will expire May 5, 1909; Henry L. West (Democrat), whose term will expire February 1, 1909; Major John Biddle (non-partisan), Corps of Engineers, United States Army, detailed during the pleasure of the President of the United States, Secretary William Tindall. Offices of Commissioners, 464 Louisiana Ave., N. W., Washington, D. C.

Three separate local governments existed in the District of Columbia from its establishment until 1871, namely: the City of Washington, the Town of Georgetown, and the Levy Court. The latter had jurisdiction over the portion of the District of Columbia outside of the city and town mentioned. All three of these governments were abolished by an act of Congress approved February 21, 1871, which provided a territorial form of government for the entire District of Columbia, with a Governor, Secretary, Board of Public Works, and Council, appointed by the President of the United States, and a House of Delegates and a delegate in Congress elected by the citizens of said district, This form of government was abolished June 20, 1874, and a temporary government by three Commissioners substituted, The latter form was succeeded by the present form July 1.1878, Congress makes all laws for the District, but has Intrusted to the Commissioners authority to make police, Building, and plumbing regulations, and others of a municipal usture,

The United States Revenue Cutter Service.

THE United States Revenue Cutter Service is a military arm of the Government attached to and under the direction of the Treasury Department. The Service was organized in 1790 and constituted the original naval force of the country. There being at that time no Navy Department the Service was placed under the Treasury Department, where it has remained ever since. It is charged with the enforcement of the navigation and customs laws of the United States, the assistance of vessels in distress, the protection of the scaling industry in Alaska, the enforcement of the quarantine laws, and numerous other duties appropriate to its class of vessels. Each Winter, by direction of the President, a number of the cutters patrol the coast for the special purpose of assisting vessels in distress. The Service co-operates with the Navy when directed by the President and has so co-operated in every war in which the United States has been engaged. The officers of the Service are commissioned by the President and hold rank by law with officers of the Army and Navy as follows:

Captains with Majors in the Army and Lieutenant-Commanders in the Navy; First Lieutenants with Captains in the Army and Lieutenants in the Navy; Second Lieutenants with First Lieutenants in the Army and Lieutenants (Junior Grade) in the Navy; Third Lieutenants with Second Lieutenants in the Army and Ensigns in the Navy.

There are now in the Service 220 commissioned officers and cadets on the active list, and 1,250 petty officers and enlisted men. The officers are: 37 Captains, 87 First Lieutenants, 37 Second Lieutenants, 5 Third Lieutenants, 33 Cadets of the line, 34 Chief Engineers, 17 First Assistant Engineers, 11 Second Assistant Engineers, 6 Cadet Engineers, 2 Constructors, and I Surgeon,

Commissioned officers of the line are appointed from Cadet graduates of the School of Instruetion at South Baltimore, Md. The Cadet course covers three years and embraces professional and academic subjects. Cadets are appotuted after competitive examinations, conducted by boards of commissioned officers of the Revenue Cutter Service. Candidates must be not less than eighteen nor more than twenty-four years of age.

Appointments to the Engineer Corps are made after competitive examination, and successful candidates are appointed Cadet Engineers for a period of six months prior to being commissioned Second Assistant Engineers in the Service. Candidates for the Engineer Corps must be not less than twentyone or more than twenty-six years of age.

The commandant of the Service is detailed from among the Captains by the Secretary of the Treasury. The present Chief of the Service is Captain Worth G. Ross, U. S. R. C. S. The Engineerin-Chief is Chief Engineer, C, A. McAllister, U.S. R. C. S.
