IN THE PUBLIC EYE
SON OF ADMIRAL EVANS
Although Rear Admiral Robley 1>. Evans re
linquUbed the command of the battleship fleet
a short time ago, yet there is another member of
the family in the naval service and at present at
tached to the battleship Louisiana, with the fleet
at Sail Kiancisoo.
This officer is Lieut. Franck Taylor Evans,
the only son of the former commander-in-chief of
the Atlantic fleet. Resembling his father in
looks, the younger Evans had made a very credit-
able record since his entrance in the navy, 14
He was born in Switzerland, while his father
was attached to the European fleet in the iOs.
September 6. 1894. he was appointed to the naval
academy at large. Completing his four-years
course of instruction at the academy in 1K98, he
was graduated from that institution. ,
In April of that vear. and just before the outbreak of the Spanish
he was assigned to the battleship Massachusetts, commanded by ( apt. * ran-
ds J. Higginson. He served on the Massachusetts through the war, taking
part in the bombardment at Santiago. San Juan and in a number of engag ^
ments in Cuban waters. He remained on the Massachusetts until 1899. when
he was transferred to the gunboat Nashville, in 1900 he was assigned to the
Hrutus on the Asiatic station.
When the battleship Alabama was completed in 19ni lie was assigned
to duty on her. April 4. 1900, he was advanced to the grade of ensign
remained on the Alabama until 1901!. when he was assigned to the Kentucky
.m the staff of Rear Admiral Francis J. lligginson, commander-in-chief of
the North Atlantic squadron.
He made the trip on the Louisiana, when she took President Roosevelt
to Panama, and also on the cruise from Hampton Roads to San Francisco
lie was promoted to the grade of lieutenant on July 1. 1904.
'FIDDLER BOB" TAYLOR
Robert Love Taylor, better known throughout
Tennessee as "Fiddler Bob," devoted his maiden
speech in the I'nlted States senate recently to an
attack upon the Republican party and the execu-
tive. Some of his similes were very effective, as
when he compared the federal power and the
states to the centripetal and centrifugal forces
that rule the universe, and when he said this of
"They are only one string of the harp of a
thousand strings upon which our modern Orpheus
is playing the triumphal march of federalism.
Senator Taylor got his nickname of Fiddler
Rob from the campaign he waged in 1889, for
election to the I'nlted States congress. He had
nothing to aid him but his wits and his fiddle,
but being a mountaineer himself he knew how to

ceived a telegram that he had been elected by a majority of one, but later he
received another that one of his supporters had changed his vote and el®ct^

Mate this time having Ills own brother for an opponent, which gave to the
c<int^st the sobriquet of "War of the Hoses." The ancient fiddle was effective
and Hob was elected He was twice re-elected. His opportunity to achieve
his final ambition offered itself at last election and he ran for the senate once
'more, being triumphantly elected this time.

OPPOSES REVOLVING DOORS
Louis Leplne, prefect of police, by issuing tkc
ordinance forbidding the use of revolving doors
iu restaurants, hotels and other public buildings
capable of holding more than 100 persons, on the
ground that they are dangerous in case of fire
or panic, has again demonstrated that he is the
wielder of the "big stick" in Paris.
The order has aroused the indignation of those
who have Installed these doors at great expense,
but the prefect is used to grumblings and mut-
terings To use an American expression, he al-
lows their complaints to go "in one ear and out
of the other."
That the edict will stand goes without saying,
for the office of prefect is more Important than
that of a cabinet minister. He Is appointed by
the president and is answerable neither to par-
Hament notMo Pari. ^ ()y r sma„ ca rylnff out his edicts. He

NEW PRESIDENT OF PERU
Senor Don Augusto B. Legula, who was re-
cently elected to succeed Dr. Pardo as president
of Peru, is said to be one of the best friends the
United States ever has had In South America.
The richness of Peru is proverbial, and for years
Senor Legula lias maintained that every effort
should be made to encourage the investment of
American capital In enterprises Intended to de- i
velop and exploit the resources of his country.
Ills liking for American methods is probably |
partly due to the fact that the large part of his j
early commercial training was acquired in the
Spanish-American department of the New York
Life Insurance Company.
