jnt ,t' dawn yesterday morning the
KiilMiip Connecticut, flagship of Hoar
Vdmitftl Hiiro Osterhaus, comtnander-
m-chi'-f r thn Atlantic flwt, stuck her
none inlo tho channel and felt her way
through a troublesome fog Into Now
Behind tho Connecticut came nine other
warships in battle formation, and all
dropped anchor at the stations assigned
In th" North Hlver at 8:'to o'clock.
The ten batt leship.s left Newport nt 5
o'clock Saturday afternoon. The sta
tion in the North Hlvtr had been marked
off l' yards nw.rt. So tho big lighters
measured olT inn yards an they left lower
Narraeansott Hay and, keeping the dis
tance through the night, pulled up the
river 4on yards apart and dropped anchor.
No pilot was taken on to bring the ships
through th" channel, in spite of the heavy
foe There Is a bit of prid in the navy
alinM steering a ship, even through .1 port
chr.nnrl. without outride aid.
The Connecticut, as flagship, led the
Beet on Its journey, although her position
5 the furthest downtown in tho North
I'.iver assignment. So, as the line came
i up the river- so straight n line that the
man on watch in front of the first ship
could sight along th tops of tho basket
battle masts straight down tho column
th Connecticut dropped out of the for
mation as she passed Forty-third street
It ind stood aside for tho rest to co on ut
the river. Whan they had passed sho
followed up to her anchorage olT Seventy
SOU foot ship nt the end of a single
anchor chain describe quite a radius
v.iinn she swings w ith the tide Therefore
a mM'iod of anchoring is cmpliyed which
dues away with much of the trouble
The ship proceeds to a oint just beyond
hr station nnd drops anchor. Then,
hacking, she lets out this anchor chain nnd
nt a point back of her station, drops
miot her anchor. After this she hauls
in on tho first and lets out the second
chain until she is just where she belongs.
At this point F.he swings upon a swivel,
th method cutting down the radius of
hr swing by it large margin.
While tho men aboard ship wen' putting
the finishing touches on the big vessel's
morning cleanup Mayor Oaynor's ex
ecutive committee v.is getting together
at the (.'oluii'bia Vnc)n Club at the foot of
West Kighty-sixth i-treet.

hands with each member of tho committee
as he climbed onto tho deck. When
everybody was safoly aboard the com

miral and Mr. Hiddcr mado a very brief
"Admiral Osterhaus," ho said, "on behalf
of the Mayor and tho people of tho city of
New York we otend to you the hospitality
of the city." Tho Admiral thanked the
committee In so many words and led tho
way down the companionway to his
When the informal reception was over
the whole party trooped back on deck and
pesed for a dozen cameras, the Admiral,
fien Harry and Mr. Hldder occupying
the centre of the group,
Then 'here was a deal of saying good-by
and piping by the boatswain's mate, and
the (luiiie drew up and took the com
mittee hack to the yacht club landing.
Mr Smith nnd Commissioner Waldo
Hayed behind r.nd were pent over to shore
later on one of the Connecticut's boats
The rest of tho morning was a round of
official rails for Admiral Osterhaus, al
though the'eity's Mirt. in tho proceedings
was over with the departure of tho com
mitter At 11 o'clock tho commandant
of the navy yard, Capt. (".leaves, with his
aid, I.ieut. Wilson Brown, came to call
on the visiting Admiral, The com
mandant's rail was of tho formal order
and did not last lotift.
'I here followed u succession of calls
from Admirals of divisions and Captains,
who nrrording to tradition, always call
upon th" commander in chief when tho
fleet roaches port.
There would bo the woird piping of the
Iwnt'.waiii's mate, and six side hoys would
line up at attention whllo Hear Admirals
came aboard, more of the weird piping,
and four sldo boys would appear to herald
the coming of n Captain: wore wailing
from the littlo whistle and a Lieutenant
ould come up the gangway and step
out on deck between two side boys.
The courtesy calls had only just been
concluded when thn red flag was hoisted
and a general blowing of bo'suns' whistles
announced dinner i''ricassee of chicken
Jas tho chief article on tho menu of the
Jarkies on tho Connecticut yesterday.
At 1 o'clock half of tho crew on each
hjp received shore leave, They went
awioro in steamers, power boats and
ted shins' Ixnits, To-day the other half
ill bo allowed ashore. With tho port
pngways cleared or the city bound
Jackics tho first of tire fleet of launches
loaded with visitors were allowed to dis
charge their passengers and the week's
inspection by thn public won on.
Persons of all ages and both sexes
clambered aboard, marvelled at tho blg

would fill her decks to the rails. Perhaps
because -he was further uptown -one
start.- for her from Ninety-seventh street
she did not attract so funny visitors as
did the older and smaller Connecticut,
the flagship of the fleet.
The Connecticut was surrounded with
a halo of small boats all the afternoon
anil getting aboard was arro!iipllhod
only at the expense of ornsiderable
waiting. At. the time for shutting ofT
visitors, i::in o'clock, came, a number of
heavily ladrn launche- were turned back.
The arrangements for handling the
crowd worked out excellently on the
whole. The only friction came when
passengers demand) d fare back without
success when they were unable to get
aboard the ship-.

allowed to use the gangways. And the
Secretary ol tho Navy has ll.xed nuo ofll
cial maximum price. 35 rents per person
each way, thus obviating a deal of bick
ering and overcharging.
Admiral Osterhaus wore a welcoming
smilo for everybody who visited the
Connecticut and was ready to extend
every courtesy, but lie shied at anvthm
like a formal interview. To one who
broached the subject the Admiral threat
ened the most (lire ol consequences and
in tho same lireatn onereu every Hos
pitality. He admitted that he was clad to cot
back to New York, and said that anybody
would be a fool not to U glad. Asked if
the run from Newport was a pleasant
trip, he replied. "Well, we're herek" and
It mnv bo added that neither tho Ad
miral nor the Captain of uny of tho ships
nornny of the more important staff officers
slept a winK on tno run over irom New
port. They were giving their attention
to that VM yard interval and to the attain
ment of perfection in the running of their
The order of the ten ships as they
steamed into the harbor and as they are
now lined up, with the exception of tho
Connecticut's change of position, is
Connecticut, Ohio, New Jersey, Hhode
Island, Nebraska, Kansas, Louisiana,
Delaware, Utah and Florida.
Helow the Florida and between that
dreadnought and ithe Connecticut nt
present is tho older pride of tho navy,
the Illinois. She is occupying her present
berth only until the arrival of the Wyom
ing, which will take that position and the
Illinois, will move further downstream.
Wnilo the reception was in progress on
tho Connecticut yesterday morning the
Massachusetts, one of thn three ships of
tho Oregon class, rame up the river
and fell into line. Tho Massachusetts,!
outclassed by the newor vessels, is now
ranked as one of the "reserve fleet."
Another of the old timers which came
up tho river after tho ten big fellows had
dropped anchor was tho San Francisco,
onco a goodly protected cruiser, now a
mere mine layer. Capt. Ilullard of tho
San Francisco is considered tho leading
expert on wireless telegraphy in the navy.
A third of the late comers was the
Yankton, the tender of the fleet nnd
privnte yacht of tho commander in chief. '
Jlor commander, Capt. John Rogers,
represents the third generation of his
family in the navy
Tho officers of the fleet recalled an in
cident in Chinese watera which indicated
what sort of n man Kogers is. Whllo ho
waa on tho Cincinnati some years ngo
Admirul Osterhaus and Capt. Hodman of
the Connecticut were on the Cincinnati
nt tho samo time - a man fell overboard.
Kogers Jumped overboard and got the
man out -it was nover qulto known how
he did it alono went to his room and put
on a dry uniform nnd said nothing about
it. The feat became known some days
afterward through tho gratitude of the
man who was resoued.
Toward tho Now York shore from tho
flagship aro four of tho big nnvy tugs,
two of which, tho Ontario and Sonomu, are
brand new. These, with tho Patuxent and
tho Patapsco, cainn over together from
Newport, following the battleship column,
The Ontario towed tho submarine C-l
over from Newport, and the torpedo bout
Mortis came along at thn samo time.
Tho New Ilampshiro, North Dakota and
Alabama are in the navy yard ready to

Some confusion was caused yesterday
afternoon by a multitude of cameras
which visitors sought to take nboi:rd the
ships Tho instruments are liarred. and
ivrore the afternoon was over the accom
modating officers ut the gangway were
swamped with cameras put in their rare
by visitors. The piles of cameras tlncllr
liecame so high that the ofllcers asked
that they be left on board the launches.

"I bad no Information from the
