The Wyoming was a fow hours astern
of the Arkansas on the run from Phil
adelphia owing to a bit of hard luck.
Bhe passed down tho Delaware ahead
of her sister on Sunday and Capt. 1 1j.
Chapln. her commander, decided it would
be well to see how she behaved when
coming to anchor before reaching Now
York, whero ho knew sho would have to
make her berth in a rushing tideway.
Bnap went an anchor chain, and there
was a 20,000 pound mud hook lying In
thirteen fathoms of water. Tho anchor
carried with it somo sixty fathoms of
chain and the problem was how to got it
ill back again.
i Capt. Chapin is mighty proud of his
hew command and ho had no idea of
jetting the Wyoming make her first ap
pearance in polite society shy an anchor,
so ho began to grapple. It took about
thirty-six hours to find tho nnchor and
get it aboard. Finding it was the smallest
part of tho job. Once fountl, it was up
to a diver to go down and make fast to
A nasty sea had been kicked up by the
tlrao the diver got to work and tho bottom
was ho disturbed that he had didlculty
in 'seeing through tho roil. Finally he
made fast to the chain, howovor. and after
several hours of mandiuvrlng tho Wy.
ornlng had all hor land tackle stowed
safely on board
Meanwhile, the Arkansas had passed
out to sea and so had the honor of being
finrt-flf the super-dreadnoughts to report
tO-vBear Admiral Osterhaus. Tho two
big ships are as like as two peas, even to
a ueaman'g eye There is naturally
treat rivalry botweu.i them, and tho Wy
oming's men are bonstlng"thnt on her way
up the coast she did 12.5 knots, which beats
the requirements and is a shade boner,
so they bay, than the Arkansas can do.
When Capt. Chapin left tho Missouri
to .command tho Wyoming he brought
with" .him 300 enlitqd,racu and Seven
oftloen! Perhaps it is only chance that
imong the 300 were most of tho men of
'tfie"" Missouri's crack nulling crew that
Captured the Prince of Unttonburg's cup
.last year. The rivalry between the
'dreadnoughts will reach its climax in the
.content for tho efficiency x:nnaut, the
blue ribbon trophy of tho navy, which goes
'to the ship with the best all around record.
The Delaware flies it now.
. Capt. Smith of the Arkansas pleased
his men by bringing his ship up to her
berth in the North Hiver without bothering
-.about a local pilot. Capt Smith one
took the Massachusetts through HU
Jate and gamed n reputation us a pilot
of sorts, although the Navy Detriment
was inclined to think him a bit of a dare
devil. The Wyoming took on the regulation
harbor pilot t'apt Chapin Mild he knew
where to find plenty of water, but wasn't
familiar enougn with the local h.irbor
regulations governing vessels to take
, chances. Th" Wyoming w.is ultotjoiln'r

The Wyoming still hns her torpedo
tubes on deck and lacks many of the
things necessary to a man-of-war prepared
.to break peace to make it. A soon as
ithe review is over she will go to Uto flronk
'lyn navy yard to complete her ordnance
work, flpesking of the rush to get the
Wyoming ready to mks under the J'reci-dent-'s
eye, Cant. Chapin said.
"I don't inlml admitting that we've
lived a lot in the lnt two weeks Jr was
a big job nnd we couldn I iavo done it
without the magnificent onrps of officers
we have. The credit brlonas to them."
Next In importance aboard the yomlng

Patrick F. McOownn, ex-President
of the Hoard of Aldermen, opposed the
adoption of tho measure. His objeotlon
was that polities should not enter tho
schools nny more than sectarianism und
he said that he would oppose the
measure to the end.
Gn. Wlngate suepested thnt the use
of school hulldlngs for campaign pur

public as well as for politics, asserting

personal experience nan snnwn mm that
for the most part such halls were con

Morris stern also upheld the resolu
tion, but Building Committeeman Levy
took a decided stand on the contrary.
Mr. Levy feared that such a measure
would soon demoralise the committee
on buildings. He contended that a po

Then too, ho said that such a course
would causo continual strife among the
members of the committee as to which
party should occupy a certain school
building at u given time.
Finally It was proposed that seven
school buildings bo used In tho next
three weeks as an experiment. It was
decided to apportion them as follows:
Two In Manhattan, two In Brooklyn and
one each In Tho Bronx, Queens and

Revenge is here the hot, reeking revenge of

political corruption which leads to riot. And
