I Controversy Over tho Naming of tho
Steamer St. Louts.
j There Ih some curioiity bore,
' writes the Washington correspond-
cut of the Herald, as to what Mr.
Uloveland will do with tho bottle of '
t Schuylkill water which tho Woman's
' Christian Temperance Union scut
to hur in christening tho now steam
er St. Louis at tho launching next
Ifshois to use wator, what will
alio do with tho bottle of St. Louis
champague which bat been provided
for tho same purpose? The sugges
tion has been made hero that if Mrs.
Cleveland has over drauk St. Louis
champagne she will refuse to spoil
a fine uow ship, such at tho St. Louis
is said to bo, by sprinkling its bow
with such a degenerate iluid.
But it is not likely that Mrs.
Cleveland knows anything about St.
Louis champagne on tho one hand,
! or has any ambition to have her
portrait hung on the walls of the
White House beside that of Mrs.
Hayes by the ladies of tho Woman's
Christian Temperance Union on the
other, aud the safest and most sensi
ble thing she can do uudor the cir
cumstances is to break over tho bows
of the St. Louis tho bottle which
Charles Cramp places in her haud
for that purpose. I
She will do the christouius? act as
the guest of Mr. Cramp, and it is j
inn Dimness tu iiirmsn wio UOUIO.
If Mr. Cramp does provide a bottle
of St. Louis wine it will be tho first
instance on record when ho had auv
thing to do with other than tho
vintage of sunny Franco, aud tho
very best at that.
'1 ho Cramps are famous for the
sumptuousness of their feasts on the
occasion of launchiugs. They have
been known to spend so much as
$.')5,0tK) for special trains, dinners,
wines and Honors iu an effort to semi
a new naval vessel into the service
under favorable and frisky sur
roundings. Mr. Cramp may permit Schuylkill

ELLIOTT AND NOBTON.
Court-Martial of Naval Ofllcor Well
! Known In Honolulu.
A general court-martial was lately
held at Vallejo, to try Lieutenants
Klllolt aud Norton of the Adams
relative to the recent grounding of
that ship ou a reef off St. Paul's
inland, Alaska. Tho Adams ground
ing had been pretty thoroughly
1 shown to Im unavoidable, but it was
I necessary, according to naval routine,
to endeavor to draw out all tho facts
iu the case, and the department or
! dered the court-martial of thuolllcers
in actual charge of the ship when
the accident occurred. Lieutenant
, Norton was the executive ollicor
and Lieutenant Elliott the naviga
j tor. Tho well-known faultinuss of
tho charts of Alaskan waters, com-
bined with a dense fog, made tho
a 'ciduut almost unavoidable. It is
, not absolutely known what the find
ings of tho court-martial are, says a
i report of November 11, mil it Is
i generally believed that the Adams'
utllcers will bo exonerated.
Lieutenants lilliott and Norton
have many friends iu Honolulu, who
will bo glad if tho vurdict prove to
bo their complete exoneration.
