MARINES ON THE WARSHIPS
Capt. Evans Doas Not Want Them
on tho Indiana.
bailors' Self-Itesiect Would Improve
If Allowed to Guard Themselves
and Accommodation-. Ho Better.
An Important question lias risen upon the
request of Capt. It. D. Evans that no marines
should be assigned to th e Indiana , b Is ground
bcingthatsucha force woulddlmlulshunduly
the accommodations Tor. the other men.
Since the Indiana has two sister ships,
a decision in Capt. Eva ns" ra v or would prob
abl extend to them.
It is said that Secretary Herbert his de
cided in any case to reduce the force of ma
rine guards serving, on ships, making the
maximum thirty ror the largest cruisers
and reducing tbe force-s on smaller vessels.
This course is opposed by tbe M ariue Con's
officers, who urge strongly the vatious uses
of marines on ships or war.
The question involved is an old one, but
was revived a ycaror tvvoago, when some
llneofflcers of the Nav j took radical ground
against the cmplovmt-nt of an marines on
war ships, not only on account of the ques
tion of accommodations or of ahilltv to
carry more blue-jackets, but on account of
the alleged iucrease of scir respect -Mitch
the latter would acquire rroni furnishing
their own guard, instead of having marines
to stand guard over them.
Without golnginiol be arguments, pro and
con, it may be said that, as a matter
for practical decision, the-lni of officers
like Capt. Evans was posslblj aided by a
strong representation from the Marine
Corps authorities that they had not enough
men ror their manifold duties, and by a plea
that tbe corps should be increased.
Secretary Hcrberldocsnotappcar to have
disputed these asser'lons, but be has taken,
if reports are correct, the other horn of the
dilemma. He has sought to decrease the
thus more are available for duty ashore.
This will avoid the need of Increasing the
corps, while al the same time making
the guard duty impo'-e-d upon the men less
It is not the solution of the problem w hlch
the orflcers of the con deem wisest, but
it may have theef feet of rendering i be shore
duties lighter, by being distributed among
a larger force, and thus decreasing the
desertions which for many J cars have been
enormous In the corps.
Fears arc said to have been expressed by
some engineer officers as to whether, with
the weight of machinery to which the two
new battle ships -have been limited, they
will make the speed or sixteen knots which
isdesire-d and called ror. Whether thisdoubt
Is shared by the"prosiecUve builders will
be better known at the ojienlng of the bids.

Frank Hamilton Cujhlng, who, some
years ago, distinguished himself by his ex

Indiana, in New Mexico, and Is now a resi
dent ot Philadelphia, will soon start on an
expedition in fresh fields to explore tho re
markable aboriginal remains of Western
Florida for the University of Pennslvanla.
Some raonlliB since Col. C. D. Durnford,
of the British army, while tarpon fishing
in Florida, discovered some entirely new
remains of the ancient Floridian people. Ho
communicated the result ot. bis finds to
the University Museum, and presented to
tint Institution fragments of ancient flsb
nets and objects of carved wood, which he
discovered In the muck in an ancient la
goon in which the prehistoric people
moored their canoes.
Mr. dishing undertook to complete the
observations mado by Col. Durntbrd, and
at once proceeded lo Florida in the interest
of the museum. A few days' excavations
yltlded valuable treasure-8 of crania, shell
and wood, and resulted in discoveries that
are likely to prove ot enormous value-to

MA URICE DO.VSAY'S GREAT PLAY
First Perrorjnntice or "Almauts"
Scores a Decided Snccess.
(Special to The Times )
(Copyrighted by James Gordon Ecnnctt.)
Paris, Nov. 0. 'while Mme. Sarah Bern;
bardt is continuing her tour through Europe,
tbe theater which is under her manage
ment In Paris Is giving some new plays.
On Monday there was the llrst piTrorm
auce of "Amants," a comedy in five tab
leau., by Maurice Donnay.a most talented
yoang poet, wno began tils tareer in the
famous cabaret, "Lc Chat Nolr," where
he used to recite his verses. He has already
had several pieces presented on the stage.
At the age of thirty he married tbe daughter
of M. Ailard, tho great upholsterer, who
has supplied some celebrated Installations
in New- Vork. M. Donuay Is an author of an
ultra Parisian type, an exorcist of a
peculiar and quasi sentimental kind.
Tbe eldef attraction of the play lies in Its
marvelous dialcgue nnd incredible wit.
It is a veritable firework of Jests and
Tbe play is well acted by Miss Granier,
the famoas light opera singer, who suc
ceeded Hortense Schneider, and was sing
ing In "Perlchole" a month ago. She has
shown herself lo be a really great actress.
Few artists could have actedas sbcdld lnthe
scene of tears and parting. Guilry, who
habitually plays with Sarah Bernhardt,
made a great bit In the part ot Vetheuil.
The remaining parts were ot no important e.
Tosum up, the play isaParlsianplay.and
bas met with a Parisian success, which

and Granier among our best actresses.

President's Notice to High Offi
cials of Army and Navy.
OOMMAMDER LUDLOW'S CASE
His Refusal to ApprovetlieExaiuliilug
Hoard's Findings Is Fructlcully an
Accusation That tbe Officer Per
mitted Personal Resentment to In
fluence Official Actions.
The refusal of President Cleveland to
approve the findings of the examining
board in the case of Commander Ludlow
Is one ot the most important cases con
cerning the naval personnel be has taken
up since his inauguration.
For a century It has been a doctrincthat
the duties ot the Executive in such caes
was merely perfunctory. It was known
that he took particular interest in the selec
tion or the general ofricers ot tLe army
and the bureau chiefs of tbe navy. His
interest In the iiersounel was supposed
to end with such officers, except when
powerful influences were exerted in the
case or special Individuals.
His refusal, therefore, to consider the
action of the examining board in Comma n-
di r Ludlow's case as conclusive has created
great interest in naval circles and will
undoubtedly have sn impot'ant effect
upon the. discipline of the service.
When Commander Ludlow was called
upon ten j ears ago to give bis opinion or
a subordinate he spoke In excellent terms
or the officer. Eight ears afterward,
with the same knowledge ution which to
base conclusions he declares! the same
subordinate unfitted ror promotion.
Both of these state nients vv ere made under
oath, and tbe form or each showed that
Commander Ludlow prepared his answers
very dellberatel. The subordinate has sat
isfied the l'resident, at least, that on ma king
his second statement Commander Ludlow
has permitted bis personal resentment to hi
fluence his official actions.
Particularly in the Nav is the matter of
record of great importance in determining
the fitness of an officer for promotion.
The authorities in Washington must give
great weight to thedeclamtionsor comma nd-Ing-ofricers,
and if this great trust is to be
iolateil and to be utedasa lever for wreak
iug vengeance upon inferiors, the efficiency
of the service will be paralyzed.
The Navy Department bas gone to great
trouble in getting up a form or report ror
determining the ntiiessororficers for impor
tant work and services. Those'who have
been entrusted with tbe prerogativ eof mak
ing the-e reports have been compelled to do
so under the solemnity or an oath. They
are only made at periodical intervals, and
safeguards are thrown around for the pro
tection or the Individual.
PRESIDENT'S DELIBERATE ACTION.
It has been the intention or tbe Depart
ment to compel superior officers to make
definite charges. The individual thus ac
cused of specific offenses has a remedy
and protection in the reply which is per
In reviewing the proceedings and from
the long consideration which this case
lias received It Is shown that the Presi
dent has acted with much deliberation.
In so doing Mr. Cleveland has served no
tice upon tbe high officials of the Army
anil Navy that the characters or subordi
nates cannot be blackened by vague and
revengerul statements made years after
the facts took place upon which such un
just conclusions were made.
For some years there have been com
plaints that the great trust which has been
placed by the Pre-sldent, through the Navy
regulations, in the bands of our flag and
commanding officer bas bees greatly
If the charge was true It was Inevitable
tbat some one would sooner or later come
to grief through the abuse of this trust.
It has been Commander Ludlow's mis
fortune to be charged by no less an author
ity than the President with this offense,
for in disapproving the nction of the board
recommending bis promotion the Presi
dent substantiates this accusation.
The promotion of many younger officers
has been delayed during tbe past year by
reason of the unfavorable reports of com
manding officers, nnd the question is now
being asked to what extent has Injustice
been done them?
The success that Commander Sperry has
met with may give encouragemc nt to others
who have been wronged to seek the pro
tection of the President in securing Justice.
OTHERS MAY SEEK PROTECTION.
The only wayin which punishment can be
meted out to commanders w ho abuse their
trust will be In the manner In which Com
mander Ludlow has been treated. Should
such an ofrender be brouaht t court
martial, he can plead no intended malice
by declaring th it be was sought for au ex
pression of opinion, and that it was not a
When his own promotion Is at stake,
however, his ofriclal acts of the past are
matters ot investigation, and that is the
onlv time when the wronged individual can
receive due consideration.
The Navy Department would undoubt
edly aid any Junior in bringing to punish
ment any commander who had abused a
trust, but It Is almost an Impossibility for
an inferior to collect evidence aboard a
warship against bis commander.
Just how a new examining board can help
Commander Ludlow seems a mystery. The
same evidence will probably be presented
and it must eventually goto the President
as the final reviewing authority.

To-day is the lOGth anniversary of the
bishop of Bait Imore. There lias been no ob
servanccorillntlielocal churches orinBalii
more. A I the masses this morning tbe last
day of the octave of All Saints was duly
commemorated, and the memory of St.
Florence, bbhon and martyr of the early
Christian Church, was eiK'Clally noted.
The archdlocet- of Baltimore is not only
the olde st in tbe United btates, but is one
of the rawt Importnnt. It comprises be

Wilmington, Bel. The direct province of

It has been urged for some time past tLat
Washington sLould have a re-ident bishop
and not be included In tbe Baltimore prov

the cardinal. Tbe iopulation of the Dis
trict is hardly large enough to warrant
having a prelate, nnd Richmond and Balti
more have lately been subdivided to make
room for Wilmington and Wheeling.
Some time ago there was a current re

Uloyd was to be made bishop, and tbat his
