This uflornuon I had n Iohr talk
with Admiral Churl B. Spcnj, who
linn been teloctcil by tin- President
to take this Fleet tit Australia nml
Japan, and hack to the Atlantic
Const. Ho will be the commander-in-chief
succeeding Admiral Kunj;
to bo exact, ha wll! succeed Admiral
Thomas, who retires In October, mid
who has nn Interregnum of uU or
eight weeks between the abdication
of Evans and the arccjtdon of Sperry.
The Intcrvlaw was held In the Ad
miral's cabin on the IT S. 8, Ala
bama, flagship of tho fourth dlvl
tlon, of which Sporry Is now com
mandor. "I'jeaso thanjt me for tho manag
ing editor of tho Examiner," mid
the Admiral, "for getting to me flit
news of tho probable appointment.
Ills telegram which I received threo
nights ago was my first Intimation
from the'Unlted States. I do not yet

"It was rumored.' Admiral," said I,
"when we started on this cruise, that
jou weio ei 111, and that this would
probnbl) bo )otr last bc.i duty"
A qulzzlc.il, sotnewnnt cjnlcal
amllo overstircid the Admiral's face.
"In tho summer of 1905, when I
nas a member of tho Oonoral Hoard
in Washington," he replied, "I ono
day contracted n severe toothache,
which spread over my faco and mado
mo both unpresentable mid unhappy.
On account of this I missed ono ses

other exception, v. as tho onl) duty I
ecr missed In my life
"Mr. Wurzbiugh," tho Admiral
calledt his flag lieutenant. "What
about that jaunt we took this morn

'Ihe Admlial certainly did not

and again a sparkling Intelligence.
Ills form was upright, spare, and his

He then became reminiscent and

successful naval officer must do for
half a century If he wishes to attain
