nor large enough to enforce orders.
The y?rs following his Fort Fisher eplSod
were mostly routine. They put him on th
retired list, on the ground of physical disa
billty. but he fought It out with ?. "ongres
and was reinstated. After recovering fron
his wounds in 1m">> he received a commis
slon as lieutenant and was stationed 01
ordnance duty at the Washington Nav;
Yard, and later with the I'lseataqua, lag
ship of the North Atlantic Squadron. Ii
1K8 he became lieutenant commander, am
after some shore duty went to the Shenan
doah and the Congress, of the Europeai
fleet. He was in command of the trainini
ship Saratoga from 1877 to 1878, and in th.
latter year became commander. Then h'
saw more service a? the Washington Nav?
Yard, and from 1882 to 1886 was a light
house inspector. The following year he be
came chief Inspector of the eteel used ot
the new cruisers.
UoHelH American Dignity.
But in 1891. as commander of the York
town, Commander Evans again came inte
his own. when he preserved the dlgnlt*
k of th? United States In Valparaiso harbor
I Chill was resounding with hostility to th<
' United States. Two of the crew of the
Baltimore, stationed at Valparaiso, hac
been killed by Chilians. The Yorktown
Kvans In command, was sent to relieve th?
Baltimore. Surrounded by nine Chlllai
warships, he fearlessly took up his posl
tion in the harbor The Cnlllans began an
noylng him. ? ?ne trick was to see how
des?** thev could manceuvre their 'tprped?
boats to the Yorktown. One of them mlsser

pa they pleased.
Kvans retorted that the Vorktown he
long<?d to the I'nlted States government
and that if so much as her paint should b?
damaged the ?'hilians would pay dearly
f'?r it.
Tic- trouble ceased promptly.
Nothing mor-- happened until the war
with Spain. Meantime, in UM, he had re?
ceived his captain's commission. When it
seemed certain that war would he declared
he offered his services to President McKin?
ley, with the remark that if any lighting
was going i?> be done he wanted to in- in it.
It Is also said that he added later: "Once
ht m? at the Spaniards and Spanish wdl
he the prevailing language in Hell for the
next ten years."
Thanked for Gallantry at Santiago.
He was soon afterward appointed to the
command of the Iowa. How well he lived
up to his reputation Is evidenced by the
familiar story ?>f the part played by the
Iowa In the battle of Santiago. For his
gallantry In that fifty-mile running fight
he received the thanks of (ongtiss and
was promoted to the rank of rear admiral.
Since then he had been twice president e.f
?he Board of Inspection and Survey, com?
mander in chief of the Asiatic station, com?
mander of the Atlantic fleet and comman?
der in chief of the Atlantic fleet on its
tour of the world in 19u7 and 19"8. Just be?
fore his retirement.
"Ready to fight or frolic." was his com?
ment as he started on that last memorable
cruhse.
The Cruise Around the World.
That brilliant achievement, the first world
i rile? of an armored fleet of that size and
po?er, fully tested Admiral Evans's ability
as an organiser an?i a commander. All that
the public knew was that sixteen battle?
ships had made a 25.000-mlle cruise. They
could not imagine what that meant to the
directing mind of the fleet, of the many
hours of nnxletv spent In poring over
ihatts of harbors or reefs, of planning for
supplies of fuel and food and of keeping
together In contenteel and happy mood the
thoi sands of men who made up the crews
of the warships.
By the time he had reached San Fran?
cisco the strain had become so severe that
he was unable to leave his bed, anil it was
recessary to relieve him from the com?
mand at that pla? e.
Active duty termlnateel for Admiral
Evans at that point. It Is true that he
did not go on the- retired lift until a few
months afterward, but never again was
he calle?! on t?> ?l.rect the movements of a
ship or fleet. He r tired to his ?jualnt, old
fashioned horn?- In Washington, ttnd. sur?
rounded by his family, spent the few re?
maining years of his life in happiness. Ills
leisure gave him opportunity to execute hi.?

wonderful experiences, :*nd these he had

ending of I he Civil War there came a
period of stagnation, which marked th?'

rjALLS QUEST FOR COST
OF PRODUCTION FUTILE
Governor Wilson of New Jersey i
Aftasfj President Taft's
fariff Board
ASSAILS PROTECTION ALSO
Principal Speaker at First of
National Democratic Club's
Tariff Reform Dinners
Last Night.
Discussing the subject of "The Demo?
cratic Party and the Tarif*'' at the Tariff
Reform dinner of the National D?*mocratlc
Club In the clubhouse last night. Gov?
ernor Wood row Wilson centre,! his argu?
ment on what he called "the Impossible
queet" Of ths Tariff Hoard for the "cost
of production," which, he said, knocked
the props from under the tariff reform
plank of the last Republican platform, and
left that party "standing In rrulckssnd."
More than that, the Governor declared |
that members of the Tariff Roard, appoint- j
et\ by President Taft to find the difference
In the cost of production here and abroad, i
had admitted to him that they were on an
impossible quest.
"No one can help sympathising with that
body of honest men of the Tariff Hoard."
Bald the Governor, al?n?? this line, "who j
are on the Impossible quest, as they them- !
selves have admitted to me?for they are ,
honest men-of finding the cost of produc?
tion."
The Tariff Hoard to which the Oovernor
refeired is composed of Thomas W. Page,
Alvln H, Sanders, William If. Howard,
James H. Reynolds ar.d Henrv ?'. Kmery.
??ivernor Wilson confined himself, apart
from hi? denunciation of the theory, or,
as he called it. the condition of protection,
to the general proposal of a "tariff for
revenus only." and advocated a gradual
retreat from the principle of protection of
American industries
Admitting that the Republican principle
of protection had wrought many good and
desirable things for the country, the Gov?
ernor contended that the theory of pro?
tection savored of "fosterage of Industry
by government" and was fundamentally
wrong as a governmental policy.
Tammany Boss Not There.
A list of those at the guest's table pre?
pared for the newspapers contained the
name of charlea )?*. .Murphy, but the Tam-c
many hots was conspicuous by his ab?
sence. It was said that he had a bad
cold
Thomas F. Donnelly, president of the
club, announced In Introducing Governor
Wilson that the club had decided to start
a campaign In favor of tariff reform and
care fully refra.ned from giving any one a
chance to make it In any sense a Wilson
boom dinner. When he tame to the point
of naming the speaker he said, "Dr. Wood
row Wilson, Oovernor of New Jersey."
Oovernor Wilson first explained that, con?
trary to an impression that seemed to have
gon?- out, he was in favor of organization^
ilependlng only upon the kind of organiza?
tion. Controlled by one man, he would
have none of It, he said, but he believed in
organization for the purpose of furthering
the public good.
Basing Ids attack em the tariff, and par- j
tieularly on the principle of protection. In
part upon the utterances of Senator Da j
Follette, ?3overnor Wilson declared that
the gr?*atest defence of protection had been
giade by men of a generation which lived
under e-.indltlons which bad now disap?
peared.
Ils defenders then, he said, believed that
fr.ompetltlon between domestic manu?
facturers would Inevitably force prices
down, but the growth of combinations ob?
literated that argument. In earlier days
our industries had all they could do to take
e are of our Internal trade, and this condi?
tion was so marked that it helped to de?
stroy our merchant marine. He a?l?ied:
We pave up the ?arrylng irado and
turned our ?ves and energies in upon
ourselves It Is one of the most notable
thltiKs of ?conomie development that a na?
tion with a genius for trade should hav
played so poor a part as we have hitherto
played In the competition for foreign mar?
kets. Wo have scorned and turned our
backs upon s sucesos which we might
have carried, under our own Stars and
Stripes, to the ends of the earth.
Hut now the Situation Is being altered.
Our eiwn cup is full, our export trade In
manufactures is. as if In spits of us, seining
very great volume, it has been a sort of
Inevitable overflow. Just as once our fer?
tile fiel.Is produced more grain than we
could ourselves consume, and our farmers
fed the test eif th" world, so now our
abundance in ths Meld of Industry is over?
flowing our borders.
This condition, the Oovernor thought,
must be met with a policy of liberalizing
S r methods of dealing with the rest of the
world, liecuuso we could not open the gates
Of export unless We also opeued the gates
of import. He went on to >?> ;
golldtUds for the wage earner Is very

I v,,iv suspicious, because the real fact of
the matter Is that the tariff duties have had
very little lo eh> with the rats of wages.

and in the long run Imperative, to ba?e

ness of th?- country.
Congressman William ?'. Redfl?*ld, of
Brooklyn, followed much the same line of
argument put forth hy Governor Wll?on
He said that American manufacturers
needed tariff reform for three specific pur
poses-to enlarge their mental and moral
vision, to Increase their efflclen?-y, and te
teach them the gospel of self-help. H?
characterized American manufacturers
generally as "Industrial shut-ins," and con?
tended for the wiping out of ih?* principle
of protection for the benefit, be said, of the
manufacturers themselves, as well as for
consumers of their go?>ds.
Congressman Francis Button Harrison
also spoke. Mr. Donnelly annoum-ed that
the National Democratic Club purposed to
hold other tariff reform dinners, to b<? ad?
dressed by men of national prominer?-?.
and that the addresses would be published
