Commander Hosley made an interna
tional reputation as the commander of the
fleet which towed the big dry dock
Dewey from Baltimore to Olongapo, P. 1.. I
Dry Dock's Long Trip.
He was born in New Hampshire and j
was graduated from the Naval Academy
In 1373. He became master in . 185&!. a
lieutenant in lssii. a lieutenant com
mander in 18U9 and a commander in 1904.
His last post was that of supervisor of
the '..arbor of New York, which he left
temporarily to take the Dewey to the
Philippines. He had a reputation as a
navigator, and for that reason was se
lei ted to put through the big towing job.
The route was laid out. but all the details
uf the trip were left to him.
The expedition left Sparrows Point in
i '< 'miter. I'"'*', the colliers Caesar and
Brutus towing the big, unwieldly dry
H. anu tin: sup;>i> ship Glacier and lite
tag Potomac acting as convoys, it was
a trip lull of lianlshipa. Six times the
towlines snapped and the job of picking
.n the tow again in heavy weather'was
anything but easy. The voyage, by the
Sin z rOute. was safely made, however,
and the Dewey was made fast at her
destination July in. 190B.
Commander llnsley's nearest relatives
are his Wife. Mrs. Genevieve Hosley of
Hits city; a daughter. Miss Genevieve
Hosley. at school at Einmitsburg, Md..
and a sister. Viss Jennie Hosley of West
