Problems of Navy Yard Administra

ton esty-day and conferred with Acting
Secretary of the Navy WInthrop In re
gard to problems of navy j anL adminis

for discussion is the proposal that me
chanics in navy ards be put under the
civil service. It has been found that
there are a great many practical-difficulties
In the way of putting such a
pian Into execution.
It Is feared that.it would be most dif
ficult to make tha examinations of me
chanics, especially the practical portions
ot such examinations, absolutely Impar
tial and at the same time Intelligible
to the civil service commission, which
would of course have to administrate
the operation of the scheme. Navy of
ficers believe, however, that some method
will be devised for successfully solving
