The report of the special inspection board
ordered to investigate tho condition of the re
cently built Simpson dry-dock at Norfolk, Va.,
completely vindicates the contractors from any
suspicion of settlement in the structure. The
Baltimore was badly strained when she was
docked some weeks ago, and In order to cover
up the true couditlon of things a report was
sent to tho Navy Dept. by tho yard officers to
tho effect that the damage was due to a settle-
incut of the dock's bottom. The truth, as in
ferentlally shown by'thc last report, was that
the ship was badly docked, a long portion of
her amidship's keel being left without support.
The dock was tested by tho docking of the old
frigate Franklin at n weight of 9,000 tons, and
beyond a temporary settlement of a small
fra'ctiou of an inch, which afterward disap
peared, there was no effect visible. The report
has started gossips to hinting at the possibility
of a "structural weakness" In the ship itself,
aud there may be some further Investigations
Into the condition of the vessel's frames the
next time she Is docked.
It Is not likely that Capt. Sampson, who is
about to be relieved from the Naval Academy,
will suffer iu nuy way on account of the
charges that have been preferred against him
by two of his servants, but there may be a
geucral order Issued soon putting a stop to the
practice of hiring two servants out of the al
lowance for one, aud thus technically present
ing false vouchers for the money. This has
been the custom at the Academy aud yards for
many years, aud nfter this fact was explained
to the Sec. he cooled down considerably from
his first state of Indignation against the officer.
Representative Mudd has been a constant caller
at the Dept. df late, urging that Capt.
Sampson be brought to trial, but the Sec.
snubbed him the other day very decidedly, and
he is not quite as euthusiastic as he was.
The North Atlantic Squadron is at Port
Royal, S. C.
Comdr. Joseph E. Craig has been ordered to
duty at the Naval Academy, June 30.
Comdr. Henry C. Taylor, of the Alliance,
now on her way to China, luforms the Navy
Dept. that on May 9, while the ship was cruis
ing in the Mediterranean and tho crew was at
target practice, Boatswain's Mate J. McGowan
was instantly killed by the premature explosion
of a 60-poundcr breech loading rille. Comdr.
Taylor Immediately ordered a board of officers
to investigate the cause of the explosion. The
board came to the conclusion that in the turn
ing of the breech plug into place the metal
must have struck a spark and ignited the cart
ridge. The Vesuvius, recently accepted by the Gov
ernment, will he put In commission at Philadel
phia to-morrow, when Lt. Seatou M. Schroeder
will assume comd. Lt. II. M. Dombaugh, En

Annai'oms, May 31. The week of annual
examinations has ended and every cadet heaves
a sigh of relief. As a rulo the examinations
were not very disastrous. Noneof the firstclass
was found "deficient." The second, third, and
fourth classes were not so fortunate, aud will
furnish their usual quota of "bllgers." A num
ber who were n little below the average will
doubtless be allowed a reexamination.
The final examination of the class of 'S3 has
beeu postponed until Juno 10 on account or the
non-arrival of a number of tho class.
