after the Kith inst. They wcro surprised at
being Informed that the postjtoneuicnt hud
been asked for by thn Chicago lines on no
'count of the Illness'of Mr. Own-go Hipley , of
the Htirlington road. Telegrams wcro at
once Kent , on bohulf of the Inter-state com *
miftfllon , to the Chicago representatives in an
endeavor to secure a meeting by the 10th If
possible , but there is some doubt whether
this can bo accomplished for the reasous be
fore stated. Judge Cooley was absent to-day
at Mt. Vernon but the committee had u long
coufeicnco with Mr. Walker , of the commis
sion , in reference to their cases. Mr. Walker
expressed himself as recognizing the wide
hearing upon this lini > ortatit question "of thu
miim of Iho two locals. " From his conversa
tion the impression was givcu that it may bu
necessary for the commission to visit Omalui
and examine thoroughly Into the existing
condition of Inter-state transportation ut that
point before forming nn opinion upon the
question Involved. The committee will remain -

Dee. 1'J. [ Special Telegram
to the Hr.i ! . ] Thu annual report of the
board of visitors to tha United States mili
tary academy at West Point , has been com
pleted. The board recommends thut the
annual report of the superintendent of thu
academy bo printed hereafter with all papers
thai accompany it. The present 'practice is
to print these reports without accompanying
papers and to inuko it a part of the report of
the lieutenant general of the army. The
board thinks that It should be made a
separate pamphlet , that mure may be known
of the alTairs of the academy. Attention Is
directed to the want of additional clerks at
the Mcudcmy mid that the compensation
fixed for cillrcn clerks Is very much below
what It should be , considering the character
and amount of work accomplished and the
long , faithful nnd meritorious Horvicci of
thoio employed. It is suggested that soldier
clerks' bo detailed for duty and that such de
tails carry additional compensation which
nhould bo provided by congress , The board
recommends that there bo inserted in the
military academy appropriation bill one
item for this purpose to read as follows :
Extra duty pay of enlhted men detailed for
clerical services at hc.iilijunrturs ut the mili
tary academy ,
The course of studios pnrsued ut the acad
emy is commended ami the work of the ofll-
cors in charge eulogized. Thu report is very
' elaborate nnd contains a great deal of gen-
'oral information its to studies , accommoda
tions ut thu academy , dally'routine of cadets ,
etc. The board believes that if the knoivl-
-edge of elementary ulgebru and geometry
( .were udllod ttf the'roquircmentH for admis
sion much valuable time might bo saved
which would bo devoted to the study of
Kngllsh literature and of the modern km *
guiiKcs und that tleeidedly butler result *
would bo obtained. The report expressed
the belief that the standard of educational
qualifications for admission to the academy
should bo raised. If the study of German
ran.be udmittrd to the course of studies ,
without crowding out any btudy now pur-
eued , the > board thinks ! it should be admitted
inasmuch as Germany has attained such
prominence In military science , mid in view
of the tact that theru are largo numbers of
Germans in the United States. The board
does not believe the study of Spanish
should bo dropped or abridged at thu acad-
euiy , but hat on the contrary , more atten
tion should be given to it. Thn board llmls
nothing to ciitieisu in thu methods of thu
government ami discipline. It Is observed
that appointments under the competitive
examination system hiivt'bocn far moru suc
cessful than these madu directly. The
board recommends that the regulation
of thu war department requiring thu
candidate , upon admission , to deposit with
the treasurer of the military academy the
sum of f 100 bo rigidly enforced. This is to
cover the expenses of candidates prior to ad-
mission. The board bulievcs that congress
should provide necessary funds to < > reet all
buildings requiredfor theiwooftboucademy ;
that provision should bo made jn like mumier
for the renewal of furniturp and necessary
repairs , and that the cadet funds be devoted
to lliu erection of n memorial hull , which
could bo used for graduating , exorcising in
Inclement weather , social gtitherings , etc.
Eighty horses , the number now used in the
Instruction of cadets in cavalry and artillery
exercises , is declared to bo insulHcicnt.
Attention Is again directed to thu need of
barracks for the accommodationoftho cavalry
detachment near the sltooi-ciipled for cavalry
Htatilc'i and to the lack of accommodations for
Instructors ut West Point ,

They Carried Away His Guns nml
Hon. John M. Thurston , his wife and Mr.
Thurston's father-in-law were quietly whiling -
ing away thohours in their jileasant iminsiou
on Furnain street last evening. The rest of
the happy family circle were at slumber , , and
between sleep and engrossment with cards
no attention was paid to burglars , who were
industrioiisly engaged at the tlmo burglariz

selves the Thurston valuables. The intrud
ers gained an entrance by sc.Uing nn addi
tion to the house , which once accomplished
permitted them access and free will to the
apartments containing the valuables , for the
recovery of which the police are now lending
their efforts. It is ' to bo inferred
from the articles taken that
Mr. Thurston was the proprietor
of n finely equipped arsenal , and could "go to
the front , " at a moments rail , for he reports
tlmt several repeating rifles wciv confiscated.

of Mrs , Thuston , besides .somu jewelry of
consequence tlmt the thieves , if caught , will
have to answer for.

unwelcome callers had carried off thu arti
cles mentioned , word was sent to the central
station and Chief Scavey turned locso bi.i

correspondence with his iiidrs by telephone.
One of the burglars was discovered buck of
the St. Cloud , who , upon being pursued ,
dropped n line sealskin sacquo bolotiging to

Early hi thu evening Carney mid another man
