May 7.—The testimony of Secretary Gage as to the condition o the treasury and its requirements ii order to meet the monetary demands of the war as made before the senate com mittee on finance was Riven to the- public yesterday. The secretary stated the available balance ic the treasury 01 April 30 at J179.832.472. but from this i' •was, he said, necessary to deduct. th< $50,000,000 appropriated for the iiationa defense. He estimated that when the deficiencies in the war and navy departments were met there would be ar available balance of $91.000,000. The treasurer estimated that he must hav- 150.000,000 for a working balance day to day. This would leave now onl> $"9 000 000 of available net cash i" trn treasury, but for the fact that then were some liabilities that would not b pressed. He thought that all treasury could count upon cash to the extent of $70.000,000 abov the $100,000,COO gold reserve. Volunteers Hav* To B« Considered. Gage stated that at the time his tes timony was .?iven none of the yoluntee forces had become a tax upon the government: that the entire 125.000 men would have to be taken care of within a month's tiim:. The best estimates placed the extraordinary expenses for the war *n<J navy departments at $52,000,000 up to the 1st of July next, in addition to th* 150000,000 voted for national de- fence He thought that from J40,MO,000 to $50 000 000 in addition to the ordinary revenues wculd have to be realized between new and July 1 to preserve the K old reserve intact. Without this extra fund he thought the reserve would be reduced to the extent of $30.000,000. leaving- in the treasury only $70,000.000. all told, at the end of the fiscal year Two Method* of Raising Money. He said he knew of no other method for raising :his extra money except by taxation or the sale of bonds. Turpie asked if he could think of no other method. "I cannot think of any other to which T think It would be proper and safe for the government to resort, except by the issuance of treasury certificates.

Tbe "boss" must not only be tolerated, bnt bowed down to as the man for the bour. Since there is a boss to every 50 or 100 men it is plain tbat tbe "sway of despotism is absolute.

The secretary refused to furnish an estimate of the expense of the war after- July 1, because he had no data from the war and navy departments, but he gave the committee what he called a "guess" based on the best information obtainable, placing the figure at 525,000.- WP a month in addition to the ordinary expenses. Gase expressed the opinion that it would be impossible to place as much as j:iOO,000,000 of the loan among individuals and in small sums. Explaining his reason for this opinion, he said: "Our people are very different from the French people, if you please, in whose country there are no saving's banks. In our'country there are 5,000.000 people •who have money in ravings bark at a general average rate of interest of 4 per cent. The money is available to them at any moment.

May 7.—There was an enormous crowd in Mechanic's pavilion last night to witness the Sharkey-Jeffries -scrap." and it was treated to some "ante-belli" sensations. Hardly- had the crowd become well settled when an accident happened which for a time bade fair to assume serious proportions. The seats elevated or. the whole end of the west side of the pavilion suddenly collapsed and the occupants were piled in a confused heap. For a brief period it was believed that many had been fatally injured, but it was subsequently ascertained that, none of the bruises was serious. Next a second section of seats on the northeast side of the building: came down in a heap, and the audience was again thrown into a state of uproar. A few moments later another section in the northwest corner collapsed and the -reat crowd was almost in a state of panic. Then the whole side of the elevated scats came down in a terrific roar, and the audience was almost beyond control. Almost every tier of seats in the house had now fallen, and the 5,000 or 6000 people on the main floor were packed in an excited crowd. The police finally managed to allay the excitement by assuring the crowd that no one had been hurt by the collapse of the gallery- seats and that there was no danger.

Not that he need be bossing all the time. But be should conceal an iron band tinder the glove of complacency and BO stamp himself upon the minds of his subordinates tbat be would sway them silent or giving orders, even when absent as well as present. "A man who gets tbere by accident, though, is not tbe boss for tbe occasion. It takes very mcch of a fellow to stand as tyrant over a hundred thinking freemen with bayonets ia their hands and avoid making the tyranny intolerable. The bosses over a hundred and a thousand are the ones who wield the galling lash of discipline in an army. And tbey must do it mercilessly in so far as the men's feelings are concerned, yet retail) their respect and devotion. Without these last tbe boss is a failure when be comes to put his men to tbe work for which he was created boss—that is, to fight. Aeain and again I have seen some soldier step up to a captain inferior in size and thank him for disciplinary punishment that brought ont the latent manhood iu him. It took some men n long time to come to that way of thinking and the whole army, too, for tbat matter, much to its detriment, for ws had the rawest amateur ideas at the start, and, iu fact, with the exception of the commands right in the heat of campaigning all the time, amateurish ways clung to us to the end. "We never got away from the chance of having accidents at the helm all along the line. Routine promotion held sway and accidents gravitated to tbe top only tojfell down on the attempt to act the boss. In the field where the fighting was this evil had its cure because a leader who couldn't fight bis command—and he couldn't if he was a failure as boss—was given a dose of tbe prevailing discipline and mercilessly hustled out of the army. In this way there were nearly 8,000 failures in the boss line disposed of in the Federal army during the war. Of course these candidates cost the government a lot of money and long stood in tbe way of better men and kept tbe whole line on a low footing while they lasted. Truth is tbe majority of them never should have had tbe chance to work evil in the forces and blacken army records with tbe verdicts on their dismissal. The way of selecting officers began in a blunder, arid after our good aatured, democratic fashion we kept it up too long. "We should have owned up at the has there been aroused iu veteran cam uaigners the old feeling that we are in the midst of war.

He owed bis shoulder straps to an act of heroism and when the face became known in the regiment the soldiers applauded the appointment. The men .thought they bad had a tyrant in the first commander, but this newcomer was tyranny incarnate, yet it was all borne without a murmur because the 'little major' could fight. "Soldiers worthy of the name wish to be ably commanded, and the exact manner of appointment is of little concern. Favoritism in appointment they know by bitter experience brings incompetents to the front. A good although somewhat extravagant example of the true soldier's attitude is found in the history of the Richmond Howitzers which served the Confederacy all through the -war. The men, high and low, were blue bloods, and after they settled down to the real work of war they divided attention between two things, fighting and getting something to eat. Whenever a vacancy occnrred among the officers there were no candidates. No one coveted the responsi- Btates reg canipineut. The camp is here now solely for the reason that this ground was once the scene of a terrible battle, yet it is not that alone which makes the atmosphere so warlike today.

Army bosses should get there by the inexorable sequence of events, not by favoritism or good fellowship. They should earn their places and do it in a way to show their fitness for them. This is no mere theory, because we had examples enough to show that it is practical and might prevail. "Napoleon made it practical.

But every winning army wins by the might of imperialism, the swtiy of force that knows no law. Patriotic generals yield their rights and privileges of rank when there is a clash of authority that may barm the cause. Someone must be boss, and they all know that one bad general is better than nwo good ones. When Meade sent Hancock, the youngest of the corps commanders, to the front at Gettysburg, all she older heads yielded full sway to him. "So in point of fact military mis is out and out despotism, the despotism of necessity. And ia a fighting airmy. above all other places, the test should be success. Every ruan of whatever rank should be given immediate recognition for auy conspicuous act of valor. It's all well enough to say that every man should at all times do his duty without hope of special reward. It is devotion to duty thac takes men into the army and holds them them, but the grandest thing among soldiers is esprit dr: corps, and this is fostered by recognition of bravery and talent. A company or regiment is proud of its hero and of the honors that come to him, xnd soldiers are never more proud of their service than -when following a man who has done something to warrant his being in command. ' Who is he?' or 'What has he done?' are queries on all sides at eivery new •promotion. If the answer is. 'He seized the flag and led his f ellowi! in battle,' there is no comment about any other points in his SEIZES THE FLAG ASD LEADS HIS FELLOWS. bility. So the company held an election at which every man was compelled to vote and the one elected compelled to serve. The 'unlucky' mau obeyed the wishes of his comrades and gave to the office the best there was in him for the glory of the command and the good of the service. It is a matter of record that there were uo misfits among the officers of the Kichmond Howitzers; "The real test is conduct in battle, and as the government has a way of rewarding conduct why not give it mere force in the time of need? Here, 30 years and more after the civil war, madals of honor for heroism are being distributed". The winners should have put them OD then. When a veteran soldier, wearing service stripes, went to the front with a new regiment, he was looted up to as a hero and.a.model. That simple bit of braid sewed to the jacket sleeve was a higher decoration than the shoulder straps of a colonel who hadn't smeJled powder. "If a service stripe which simply meant that the wearer had been out once and had the courage to go again gave such distinction, the power of a medal of honor won by gallantry iu tbe field can scarcely be estimated. Men so decorated would play the role of war chiefs without intending to do so, for the sioldiers would follow them in action regardless of the pre-seuce of fledge- ling officers." As a rule tbe fighting boss is anything: but a meddlesome boss. He is not a stickler for military etiquette . but be SNODGKASS HOUSE. buttons and bunting. A camp of the regulars anywhere and at any time is warlike; everything is so grimly methodical. All tbat there io to see and to hear denotes the profession of arms. Today as I started from General Brooke's headquarters on Thomas' old battleground to cross the park to the famous Widow Glenn field, where the Twenty-fifth colored regiment pitched its camp, I rejoiced that although I was in a park tbere were no warnings posted about, "Keep off tbe grass." But my short cut was cnt short the moment I "struck tbe intervening Dyer field, where the main body of tbe regulars is encamped. Seeing an open space between the stables and tents of a battery, I coolly walked on as though to cross it. but instantly a soldier armed with a saber halted me and with a sweep of his blade through the air motioned me back. A camp of regular troops anywhere, in peace as well as in war, is forbidden ground for outsiders. Rules are different in the easy going militia cainp. Taking a roundabout course, I reached Camp Boyaton to find the colored troops at drill, nettled over the reminder of my militaryrustiness, a feeling which increased when I saw soldiers with black faces performing better evolutions than I ever saw in wartime aud doing it to commands I did not understand. Part of the time the commands were given by tbe uew syntem of bugle signals, which the" inventor, Colonel A. S. Burt of the Twenty-fifth, was testing for field us?. The soldiers of the Twenty-fifth are proud of their colonel, and he is prond of his command. When asked if the colored tronps will fight, he simply refers to their record iu the civil war, then says, "Look at them aud judge for yourself.'' There is really no comparison betwecu thy colored men iu arms bare and those seen at the. front in tbe war. It is 20 years since colored Troop D of the Ninth cavalry, now encamped here, dashed through tbe lines of hostile Utes on White river and rescued Major ThornbursLTs command from massacre. Every horse iu tbe troop was killed. On the breasts of the men here are to he seen medals won in that famous action. General John R. Brooke, commander of tbe troops here, although well known on the plains, will be bet- remembered by eastern war veter- than those of western armies. He it was who ac the storming of Marye's Heights seized a knoll within 50 yards of the stone wall and staid there with a shattered regiment after the rest of the army had bsen slaughtered or repulsed.

"You have no business to think,' is a prevalent expression around his bead- qoarliers. It goes with the saying tbat men to play tbe role of boss in battle cannot be picked out of the candidate* in the governor's room nor in the camps where raw levies are organized. A hard campaign is the only thing to bring nut the stuff in each individual. Soldieirly capacity should then be recognized and rewarded quickly. A roll of liouur iu the shape of a list of eligibles to draw from for promotions might be instituted. Whole companies and regiments underwent a complete change of character by the gravitation to the top of au incompetent. Fighting commands became just the opposite. The old adage, ••Like- master, like man," was proved true witi a veageance. Generally these men tried hard to fit the role, attempts that only made matters worse, ^o more degrading (Spectacle.can be imagined than that of a vain, weak fellow trying to boss it over soldiers who, for tbe work of war, are his superiors But a muster of true soldiers with a leader after their own hearts is a sight to make Mars smile. GEOEGE L, KILMEB. In many respects this is an ideal camp ground. It is within 400 miles of the coast east and sonth, is high and rolling and supplied with water from artesian wells. Tbe ground is well laid out and provided with fine roads. Tbe colored camp is around Rosecraus' former headquarters, aud that ground, with the fields between it and Brooke's headquarters, occupied by the batteries and cavalry, was tbe scene of fighting in which the right Federal wing was crashed while attempting to cross over and'join Thomas on the historic: ridge. That ibis is ancient history I was reminded today vi-hile crossing tbe park. Noticing some laborers clearing a spo: of ground, I learned that tbey were ^preparing to set up a memorial to ths Georgia Confederates who fell at Chickamauga.
