The Enterprise is being fitted out with a new '
complement of officers preparatory to another I
cruise, which, it is to be hoped, will prove a j
happier oue than that from which she recently i
returned. Her new men, as far as ordered at '
present, are as follows : Comdr. George A. j
Converse, detached from special duty at Bris
tol, R. I.; Lt. S. P. Colvocoresses, from the I
Naval Academv; Lt. F. W. Nichols, fiom the I
Peusacola; Lt. Walter McLinn, from the naval

Ensign E. E. Capehart, from the Naval Acad- i
emy; Surg. M. II. Simons, and P. A. Paymr.
James E. Caun. She will sail in a few weeks
for Europe, with the body of the late John i
Ericsson on board, and after she has performed j
her melancholy errand of returning these j
ashes to their native soil she will probably i

of the widow of Rear Adm. David McDougall.
Pay DIr. Caspar Scheuk has been ordered to
take station at Annapolis, assuming the duties
of general storekeeper, lately performed by
Pay Insp. Stevenson, who was relieved some
time ago. The Pay Office at Boston vacated by
Schenk will be occupied by Pay Insp. Ambrose
J. Clark, who was paymr. on board the Tren
ton when she was struck by the hurricane in
the harbor of Apia. He has just returned from
a trip to Europe, where he went to recuperate. '
While he was across the water he heard of the
resignation of Paymr. Gen. Looker, and the
appointment of Stewart, and he at once cabled
his application for the New York Pay Office,
which the latter left, and took the next steamer
for home. During the- passage over Pay DIr.
Thornton was given the New York office, and
upon his arrival In this country Clark was ex
ceedingly wroth. He was pacified by the prom
ise that he should have the next good office.
The relief of Stevenson was expected, as he
was at swords points with every other officer at

Comdr. Alleu D. Browne is not likely to re
tire after all, and this may save Comdr. Mc
Calla from the humiliation of being jumped in
rank so soon after his trial. Browne was ex
amined by the retiring board on account of his
disabilities, but the verdict was that he would
probably recover with a little rest, and he has
been granted a 3-ear's leave of absence.
There is a rumor that the Baltimore may be
sent to Europe as flag-ship of the squadron upon
the completion of the present manoeuvres.
The Baltimore, upon her arrival at New York
from the South, turned back at once aud sailed
for Norfolk, where she is to receive her great
guns, which will make her armament complete.
She is to return to join the squadron in time to
tako part In the Maine celebration.
Bids were, opened Tuesday for the construction
of three vessels the 8100-ton armored cruiser
No. 2, the 5500-ton protected cruiser No. 0, and
the 800-ton practice vessel. The bids were as
follows: For the 8,100-ton ship, the Union Iron
Works, of San Francisco, $3,100,000 on the plaus
of the Dept. or $3,000,000 ou the bidders' plans;
the Win. Cramps it Sons' Ship-buildlug Co., of

Locomotive Works, of San Francisco, $3,450,000
on the Dept.'s plaus. But oue bidder put in an
estimate on the 5.500-ton vessel, the Union Iron
AVorks, of San Francisco, whose bid was $1,700,-
000 ou the plans of the Dept., or 1,7(30,000 on
their own plans. For the practice vessel two
bids were received F. W. Wheeler it Co., of '
West Bay City, Mich., $215,000; the Samuel L.

Bids were to have been opened at the Navy
Dept. at noon Tuesday for the construction of
3 steel steam tugs for the Navy. The appro
priation is $35,000 for each tug. When the
time came for the opening of bids oue envelope
was at hand, marked "Proposals for Tugs,"
and when this was opened It was found to be
an offer from the Red Star Towing Company, of
Baltimore, to sell one of their tugs to the Gov
ernment for about $32,000, but this could not
be considered. There were several builders
present, who said that uo oue could be found
to build tugs such as were called for for that
money, especially as the steel has to pass the

From this sum, however, $9,700 had to be de
ducted for time penalties. The contract time
expired in October last, and the vessel
is now earning penalties for the Government at
the rate of $200 a day. There is one more pay
i ment to be made. The Newark is being built
by the Cramps. The San Francisco, being built

' about of officers, and many a" man who has
, been on pleabaut duty at the Dept. or else
i where in this city for several years past is look
1 ing anxiously for his orders. The number of new
l ships being put in commission is, of course, of
fering a wider choice to officers who have any
choice in the matter, but it is a strange thiug
to a landsman that nearly all of those who
have to go to sea prefer the older ships of the
Navy on the ground that they are more com
fortable. Their cabins are said to be larger,
and their duties are much lighter.

go aboard of her and sail down to Yorktown,

There is a very dlstiuct rumor afloat in the
Navy Dept. that Chief Constructor Wilson, who
will finifch his second term in November next, is
making some mighty efforts to make his renom
ination a sure thing, and that ho i6 tryimr to
follow the wishes of the See. in every particular,
so as to be in perfect concord with him. He Is
not thought, however, to stand much show, as
the Sec. is giving evidences that he would like
another sort of a man In the Construction Bu
reau. There is a feeling among the officers on
duty at the Dept, that tne Sec. is a hard man to
get along with, but this is but a repetition of
former 6tories. There was never a Sec. of the
Navy who was not regarded by a large class of
the officers who were then on duty around him
as a boor and an impediment to the progress of
the Navy. It seems to be a legacy of the office

from duty as steel iKSp. at Thurlow, Pa., and
ordered to the Enterprise, July 1.
Sec. Tracy Is in a pickle about the award of
the contract for the S,100-ton cruiser, as ho is
impelled by cettain forces to give the work to
the Cramps, of Pliilalelphia, and Is deterred
from doing so by the fact that Scott underbid
his Eastern rival $50,000 on the Dept.'s designs.
As these plans arc those favored by the Sec,
he does not care to make the award on the
basis of the bidder's plans, which would enable
him to give the job to Cramp. The latter's
design alters the ship considerably, without
any advantage being gained except to cheapen
her construction aud give the builder
more cbauces of high premiums. There
is talk of the problem being solved by an
award to Cramp on his own design, to be after
ward changed back to suit the" Sec. As this
would in reality be a return to the Dept.'s idea,
it would be equivalent to giving Cramp the
work at a fictitious bid, forcing him to acknowl
edge that ho had made an excessive estimate on
the plans of the Government. At the Cabinet
meeting on Friday the question was examined
in every bearing, both political and professional,
the bidder's plans being brought over from the
Navy Dept. A decision is expected tomorrow,
and there is almost sure to be music in the air
when it is announced.
