is favorable to the plan He reported
from the Committee on the Judiciary the

the other hand Senator Borah of Idaho,
who is a Progressive. Is opposed to the
plan He delivered a speech against it
at the last session "This proposition
has no virtue In It that I can see," said
Senator Borah to-day "A six-) ear term

Secretary of Navy Devotes Consid
erable Space to a Plan Which
Is Proving Successful.
The Secretary of the Navy s annual re
port devotes some space to the detention
S)stem of punishment for naval offenses,
which was put Into operation on Septem
ber l. I'll, and has produced graUf)ing
results. By means of this system naval
prisoners are divided into two broad
clases first, those convicted of offenses
involving moral turpitude or violation
of general laws of the countr) ; and, sec
ond, those convicted of purely military
offenses. Offenders of the first class,
whose retention In the navy would be
prejudicial to the best interests of the
service, are sent to State prisons and sub
jected to the rules and discipline of such
institutions in the same manner as per'
sons convicted of similar offenses by a
civil court. Those guilt) of military of
fenses whose previous records give hope
of reform are sent to what are known as
' Naval Disciplinary Barracks " These
last offenders are called "detenUoners"
Instead of "prisoners," they continue to
wear nav al uniform Instead of prison garb
and Instead of performing "hard labor,"
they are put through a carefully selected
course In service drills and instructions
with a view to Increased efficiency when
restored to duty. These detenUoners.
while the) are deprived of their liberty
and pay during detention, escape the Ig
nominy which attaches to persons who
have served a term In prison.
After a detentloner has satisfactorily
served two-thirds-of the period to which
sentenced, he lsMIaced on probation at
the disciplinary barracks, and, as far as
possible, given duties similar to those
performed by other enlisted men lit the
navy. During this probationary period.
the detentloner Is carefully observed by
the officers in charge, and if his conduct
warrants such action he Is unconditionally
restored to general duty in the navy.
Aside from the help given the Indi
vidual, the detention system, which oper
ates to reform naval offenders who for
merly were dishonorably discharged, ac
complishes a financial saving to the gov
ernment, as it costs monev to enlist.

Importunities from those who are very
desirous to serve the government under
the new administration are not confined
to Democratic statesmen.
Senator P. J. McCumber, Republican,
from North Dakota, has received an as
sortment of applications from people who
believe that the Senator, always on the
alert for the interest of his State, will
have a hand In making the transfer in
certain offices, after March 4.
A gentleman who has been engaged In
school teaching. Is early In the field, with
