Tho recommendation ot 3IaJoi Geneial
JIIlcs to tho Secretary ot War that the
senl.ir class of West Point be eradntted
February 15. Instead of June 15, Is creating
considerable talk among army officers, who
are divided on the question. Adjutant Gen
eral Cor bin and the officers of his depart
ment are said to bs opposed to the plan,
and are making a tight to hare the Se:re
tary of War refuse to net on General
Miles' recommendation. It was stated by
an army officer that Secretaty Root bid
prepared a. letter to Col. .A. S. Mills, tho
superintendent ot the Academy, a'king
whether the cadets were prepared to grad
uate In February, but General Cortin's
protests availed, and that this letter Pas
not yet been sent, and may not be s;nt.
The-cadets mny be allowed to continue in
the Academy until June.
The recent retirements and ins deaths,
both from 'natural causes and- In the H-ax n
the Philippines, have caused law number
ot vacancies In the ranks of sccoud lieuten
ants in the. regular army. A short time
ago .the regular army was short oter 100
second lieutenants. To fill these vacan
cies many appointments have bein rn.ide
from civil life, and many cnllited men,
having served three years, have taken ex
aminations, and, on passing, have been
General Miles and Uls filcnds are stand
ing up for the West Point cadets, claim
ing that It nill be great injustice to ap
point fifty or sixty second lieutenants from
civil life who will rank the graduates
from West Point. The mere fact pf being
outranked as a second lieutenant does to:
make a great deal of difference on first en
tering the army, but as promotion to hlgh
or grades falls due. the army otfliers say U
works great hardships, and that many offi
cers are retired as captains, majors, or
lieutenant colonels because of age when In
ferior officers arc kept in aciie se:v:ce.
and reach higher ranks.
Th nOiceis onioscd to graduating the
cadets in February argue that it will le a
bad precedent to establish : they say that
the law prescribes a four years' course, and
with the pxreution at the outbreak of the
civil war and the beginning ot the Spanish
war the rule has never been broken ana
hmiiri not lm in this case. They claim that
1 the nutntier of appointments ot civilians to
second lieutenants between me present,
time and June, when the class graduates
will not be large, and will not hurt the
West Pointers, ro far as outranking them
They further say that to graduate the
members of this car's senior class four
months in advance of the date ihey would
ordinarily graduate will result in nevt
year's claEs and the next after that asking
to be graduated before they have finished
Secretary Root Is expected to very short
ly decide whether the class will graduate
in February of wait until June.

Among the women who went in the di
rection of the church this morning were
two maidens who were well veiled and
dressed In Scotch plaid wraps and other
ornaments that arc attractive.
One of them was neatly built and shouted
a wasp-like figure. Her charms attracted
a passer-by. fffty years old. Seeing the
maiden walking along with a mincing gait,
he approached her. Taking off his bat he
said: "Good morning, miss. Tou'rc out
early. Don't you want company?"
The answer to bis question gave bim a
shock. A heavy hand was placed upon his
arm. The veil when removed showed a
heavily mnstached face, and a rich gut
tural brogue advised tbe individual that be
was under arrest.
The "maiden" was Patrolman James Mc
Intyre, of tho central police station, and
his companian was Sergeant Jefferson. Tho
make-up of both men was excellent, their
wives having assisted and hidden their
heavy mustaches by thick veils.
The prisoner was taken to the central
police station and a charge of disorderly
conduct lodged against bim. On account
of his standing and tbe scandal it might
cause, the police finally decided to suppress
his name. Ha was dismissed with a repri

Designs for the greatest battleships ever
projected for the American Navy have
been agreed uiion by the Naval Board of
Construction after several months of dis
cussion over the Important questions of
battery, armor, speed.' coal capacity, and
Tbe three new vessels to be called the
Georgia, tho New Jersey, and tbe Penn
sylvania will equal In formidabllity the
finest line of battle vessels yet laid down
by any foreign power, and, with the addi
tion of typical American improvements,
will surpass in fighting force any ships
The salient features of the design con
template a displacement of approximately
H.OOu tous. as compared with the Oregon's
1LO00. or the tew Maine's 12.300. Ths
speed is to lie "at least nineteen knots,"
with a coal bunker capacity of 2,000 tons.
There ;wlll bo two, superimposed turrets,
one fore And the other aft, each containing
two 12-incb and two 8-inch'guns of the new
elongated bore and high smokeless powder
telocitv. The remaining guns ot the main
battery will consist of twelve 6-Inch quick
fire in broadside. This arrangement of
battery has been finally adopted Instead of
an alternative plan which provided for four
12-inch guns in turrets and sixteen G-lnch
broadside, which had ,bcen put forward to
avoid the expedient of superimposed tur
rets. Tbe two-story turrets, which are a dis
tinctively American innovation as applied
to the Kearsarge and the Kentucky, are re
garded as no longer of doubtful success.
and it Is known that foreign governments
are preparing to adept them to secure the
concentration and angle of fire they secure,
which is unapproacbed by any other expe
dient. The beard also dehnltely determined up
on the use of the most modern Kruppixrd
armor for the new vessels. Its precise dis
tribution to be decided upon after tbe Chief
Constructor has made sufficient progress
with tbe actual plans to determine the
proper arrangement of weights.
The armor problem has been the most
difficult to solve, and to this cause is at
tributed the delay in planning tbe ships.
The act authorizing the vessels was appro-ted
on March 3 of this year, and it stip
ulated that no contract should be made
for any portion of the vessels until a eon
tract was made for the armor.
Congress having limited tbe cost of tbe
armor to the ridiculous price of $300 a ton,
it was evident from the beginning that no
satisfactory ship could be built under such
restriction, and for that reason the plant
have been discussed with unusual delibera
tion. As the weight of armor entering Into
these ships was n very large item, the
question of the adoption of Krupp or the
inferior Harveyised material was extreme
ly important. This can be readily appre
ciated from tbe fact that roughly 3,000
tons of tbe former (the approximate
weight required for each battleship) is
equivalent, as regards resistance, to pene
tration, to 4.000 of tbe latter. The adop
tion, therefore, of the material treated by
the Krupp process meant that 1,000 tons
of weight would be available for distribu
tion among other vital characteristics ot a
battleship weight of propelling machinery
(speed), armament, coal carrying capacity
The total cost of each of these three
ships when, ready for sea will exceed $7,-
CO0.000 each. They will cruise seven thou
sam, miies ' slralghtaway, and there will
not be three ships of similar offensive and
defensive strength in .the fleet ot auy pos
