Issurd to net under way at 2 o'clock,

Wlilla tho West Virginia's drstlnn
IIciii Is known only to Admiral Soutti
erliiml, Oiptuln Halstead mid tho Mug
stun, there lire a number of points, In
slgulllcuiit In themselves, which, when
Hummed up, Indlciito that Palmyra Is
IhihI Ix thu objective, mid that an In
ternational uffnlr may have culled u
United States warxhlp to llinso waters.
It leaked out Juxt previous to thu
departuro of tho other crulxerx that
the Wext Virginia's expected cruise
would not bo of long duration, and that
she would rejoin tho other ships hero
after her mission was accomplished.
Then, again, It Is known that, half u

a two weekx' Jaunt to some nearby
point, mid .that officers and men nro
merely saying all revolr to Honolulu
and to their "sweethearts and wlvex."
"If thera was anything I could dive
out for publication. J. would Kindly tell
you," said Admiral Smithcrlnnd to n
It ii 1 1 o 1 1 ii reporter this noon. "The
fart that the orders aro secret, though,
makes It Impnsslblo for me to even
discuss thu matter. Whether we rejoin
the fleet or not depends on circum
stances and future orderx."
The orders calling away thu West
Virginia caino direct from tho Navy
Department, and not through the com-niundrr-ln-clilcf
of tho Piiclllr. fleet.
Further orders for tho cruiser's move
ments, however, aro likely to como
from Admiral Thomas.
Knglund's reputed claim to Palmyra
Island Is thought to bo the cnuxo of
sending nn American vexxel there. The
It-land, to which Judge Cooper of thlx
, city holds title, was annexed by Hawaii
many years uro, and when Hawaii be
caino part of tho United Ktatex, Pal

Included, In ttio annexation treaty. Of
late there havo been rumors that Great

generally believed that tho West Vir
