discourse on their hobbles.

that the Atlantic battleship fleet

completed off the Virginia Capes.

The state department, to the mind
of the general public, Is n dreary-
some place, overflowing with for-
mality, stiff necks and silent as a
church yard. Generally speaking,
litis conception is correct, but at
present there is some person of
frlvokhjs mind connected with the
department, who leans too much to
the liumaif side of life to jnnUe the
possessor a valuable adjunct to the
solemn sta'.c department ntaff. A
idea of the excellence of the score
may be gained when It Is remem-
bered that the U. 8. S. Maryland,
leader of tho 1'acific fleet, made a
final score of :t8 under the same
conditions. This Indicntos that the
Atlantic fleet once more has scored
a victory over the Pacific in target
The practice tills year wns under
new rules, which made it more dif-
ficult than over before. Instead of
firing at a stationary target in
smooth or land locked water, the
vessels fired at a moving target in
the open sea. Several remarkable
records were made. The battleship
Louisiana, which last year broke the
world's record with one of her 12
inch turrets, equalled her score on
one of her guns at this practice. One
turret firing eight shots at the run-
ning target, made eight hits. An-
other turret, firing eight shots, al-
so made eight lilts. On the second
run, however, the gunnery crew were
so anxious to excel this record that
they fired too fast and spoiled what
otherwise would have been a gener-
ally excellent score.
The night firing, especially, wns
spectacular. Only tho smaller guns
were used at tho night fire, the ob-
ject of the practlee being to protect
a battleship against torpedo at-
tat Its. The ships steamed out Into
the black sea, the commanders,
knowing thai threw more targets
were hidden somewhere. By the aid
of the searchlights these targets
were picked up and the three-inch
guns Immediately marked them as
The scores are calculated accord-
ing to the time it takes a ship to
put the targets out of commission.
Should even one target be over-
looked by the ship's commander, it
is regarded as a very grievous mis-j
take and counts heavily against the
ship's score, because, It Is reasoned,
that if this target had been a tor-
pedo boat the ship might have been
destroyed. Bach shot fired at night
has a small red tracer attached, so
they are easily disccrnahle as they
pass through the air. It makes the
ship appear as if rockets were shoot- ,
ing from all sides, and naturally j
atlds to the spectacular effect of the :
The action of Secretary of the
Navy Meyer in ordering an end to
the recent court of Inquiry Into the
U. S. Marine Corps squabble, and (
to the court that la investigating
the charge that Commander Hill of
the gun boat Marietta, did not keep'
his ship clean, lias caused some crit- j
iclsiu. The navy head, who is hav-
ing the tight of his life with congress
to have his reorganization plan for
the nuvul establishment adopted, Is
adverse to having the "dirty linen"
of the service washed in public. Tiie
recent court martial of Paymaster
;\uld and Doctor Hohinett at the
Hoston navy yard, with the attend-
ing sensational stories, sickened tho
