Friends of the Xary In Congress propose
to make a hard fight for the early pas
sage of the Xa personnel bill. The, be
lle e that it Is non a good time, nhen the
Xay Js showing Us high stdte of effl
ciencj, to secure legislation which will
put both the officers and the men on at
Ieat as good a footing as their brothers
In the Army. The bill, which has been
agreed to by the House committee, pro
poses to give the officers In the Nay the
same pay as officers of like rank In the
It proposes to go further, and put an
end once for all to the line and staff con
troen which, while It does not seem
to Interfere with the fighting ability of
the Nay in time of war, leads to much
dircomfort and jealousy among the offi
cers In time of peace. This is to be ac
complished by practical' abolishing the
Engineer Corps, the largest of the staff
corps, and merging It Into the line. Here
after there will be no distinction between
the officers who graduate from the Xaal
Academx. All will be line officers, and all
will be qualified for sen ice. watch offi
cers, either on deck or In the engine room.
An important pro.iIon of the bill is
that which creates a corps of-warrant of
ficers and machinists, and which will give
the chief machinist on a modern man-of-war
the same rank and pav as the boat
swain, the sailmaker and the carpenter.
Provision Is also made for the promotion
of warrant officer who hac sened ten
jears and have pas-ed an examination to
the grade of chief warrant officer, to rank
with but after the ensigns. In order to
facilitate promotion In the "construction
corps, the number of naal constructors
with the rank of captain Is Increased from
two to five, and the number with the rank
of commander Is Increased from three to
The Marine Corps organization bill has
been added to the Xavy personnel bill,
and the whole matter will be disposed of
at once. It gives the commandant of the
corps the rank of brigadier general and
provides for three regimental organiza
tions on a two-battalion, ten-company bi

Upon the Northern patrol -quadron will
depend the defence of the Northern coast.
Informed of the whereabouts of the Span
ish Cape Verde fleet, the authorities hae
for the time ceas-ed to be alarmed about
the safety of ports along the coast.
It was the Ignorance as to the position
of the bpanlth fleet which sailed from St
Vincent fourteen dajs ago that caused
the authorities to fear that the .enemi's
squadron wai bound for a Northern port,
with the object of committing; as raueri
damage as possible and then returning to
San Juan to replenish the coal "bankers;
of the ship. This ignorance has Jjeen
dipelled. and no apprehension is now felt
as to the Inpendins demonstration by th
enemy at any port along the coast.
Consideration has been gien by the
Natal War Hoard to the reports that tea
sels flying the enemj's Hag were cruising
in Northern water, but beyond the sta
tioning of Commodore Hou ell s command
in Massachusetts waters nothing has
been done to present them from continu
