AS IT SHOULD BE
WASHINGTON. March 27.-
Ilercafter colored men only will be
appointed chief musicians of colored
regiment in the United States army.
An order to that effect was issued to
day !y liencral Bell, duet Ol stall,
by direction of the President. White
chief musicians previously serving
with colored regiments have been

WEEK IN STOCKS
NEW YORK, March 27--Stocks
have risen in price during the week
with resulting effect on the tone of
speculative confidence tempered by
the knowledge that professional
charge of shorts was making the
principal demand. Scanty supplies
offered to meet this demand had a
confirmatory effect on confidence.
Reports from the atcel trade showed
continued depression in all depart
ments with exception of further cuts
in prices and wage reductions to
come- there was some Dettcrment
in the demand for copper, but it was
not maintained. The outgo of gold
was without serious effect on money
rates, and the easing off in the ex
change rates indicated a check to the
gold export movement.
PURCHASED FAMILY HOME
NEW YORK, March 27.-Mrs.
Russel Sage has purchased the old
Nathan Sage place the home of some
of her ancesters at Poxabaguc, L. I.,
near Sag Harbor. It is said to be re
built in the sime style of architec
ture. It is said that Mrs. Sage paid an
almost prohibitive price for the place
because of its associations. '
