THE ARMY AND NAVY.
The question ot tho aruument ot our forts Is re
ceiving considerable attention In Congress. An ef
fort was made to add an amendment, In the House,
which was ruled out on a point of order, that pro
vided for a board composed of oniccra nt the Army
and Navy with three civilians to report on any guns
submitted to them. The amendment offered In Hie
benate to tho Fortification, bill provides for a similar
board, which practically takes the question of de
ciding whether tho gun Is equal to the requirements
from tho Ordnance Corps of the Army. It was In
tended that tho otneers of the Ordnance Corpa
shouid bo present and miko all tho measurements
necessary, but tho fact Itself as to tho vcl iclty and
penetration was t bo deel led by tho hoird. The
object of this proposed legislation Is evidently to get
an opinion other Itnn that of the Ordninco lorps ot
Ihe Army In relation to tho needs ot tho country In
tho way of guns for our defenses Tho proposition
ot the ordnance officers Is to bull I s largo gun fac
tory to make guns ot steel, by assembling a number
ot Bcctlons, making a built np gun, while the scheme
presented to the Committee on Appropriations Is to
make tno guns of cast Iron, making them much
cheaper than the built np gun, an 1 It Is claimed for
the purpose of formications quite as serviceable.
Tho scandals affecting tho English war oirtre, re
cently exposed In tho liuflon iimrs, Inculpatiug
prominent officials of the ordnance department,
havo created quite a aenstllon. Tho Ttnua atatca
that "tho department la composed of military men
without mechanical, chimlcal, or metallurgical
knowledge of men who are babies In the hands of
their subordinates " If this Is true, then tho sooner
a change Is made In tho administration of the ord
nance department of theEngleVi army thebeller II
will bo for It. Why It should be considered neces
sary to have a military man at tho head of a gun
manufacturing establishment is not easy to see
Tho manufacture ot ordnance Is purely a median
leal pursuit, and unless Iho officers having charge
ot the manufacture of guns have had a practical
mechanical training they cannot bo competent to
supervise Ihe construction ol work that la mccbanl.
cal In Its every detail. A prominent member of
Congress, after hearing thla scandal about the Eng
lish ordnance department, asked how Is It about our
ordnance officers? Havo they any special mechanical
training aud aptltudo for doing this kind of work 1
It so, where did they learn It ? Not at weal rolnt
surely, and If the subordinates do Ihe actual me'
chanlcal work In England-probably It Is the tamo In
our own service would It not bo well for Congress
to know Ihe particular Illness ot our ordnance offi
cers lo take charge of the manufacture of guns and
1 be plans for the hull of Ihe new4,otw ton cruiser are
now completed -thoso of tho machinery being fin
ished some time ago-making it possible for the Secre
tary oftbeNavy to advertise for proposals for the new
ships at any time. At he Intends lo Include the
Nanlwa Ksulnthe four vessels authorized by Con
gress, there will be four classes of ships, the 810-ton
gunboit, the twin screw 1,100 ton gunboat, and Ihe
4,000 ton cruiser, designed atlheNavy Department
Ihe hulls by the Ilurenu of Construction, and the
machinery by the llnreau of Steam Koglnecriug. It
was tttted by a New York dally that the Secretary
of the Navy was obliged to gi outside of Ihe Navy
Department for tho designs of the machinery for
Ihe proposed cruisers. On Inquiry at tho Depart
ment we Dud that the statement Is incorrect, as all
the drawings and specifications for tho machinery
were made by tho Bureau of Steam Engineering and
accepted by the board on additional vessels as
they were submitted by Comraodoro Loring, the
Englneer-ln-Chtef of the Navy, while It Is stated
that Hie drawings submitted to Ihe board by private
builders wero open to ao many criticisms that the
board declined to approvo them, giving prefircoce
to Ihe plans submitted by Ihe Engineer In Chief.
It has been suggested that ono ot Ihcso new ves
sels should bo delivered to the Government at San
Francisco by the contracting parlies. 'Ihli would
give thffbulldcrs In California a chaiico lo compete
with Eastern builders, and would not cost the Gov
ernment a dollar more If tho vessel was needed for
tho l'aclllo coast. 1 bat ono o! these vessels should
bo sent out to tho I'aclflo thcro canbenoquiitlon.
Our Interest on Iho West coast li Increasing every
lay, and the only vessels uowthero aro old anil
quated wooden vessels built before aud during the
war, decaying as rapidly as possible. '1 hese ships
wero good euough In their day, but that has passed.
1 he Sccretsry should do all lu his power to rncour
ago the mechanical Industries of Iho l'aclllo slope.
In the bill to lucreaso the naval establishment,
whU h was up for consideration yesterday, a new
section Is added lo proyldo for Iho building of a
dynamite gun cruiser lo havo a speed uf twenty
knots an hour.

Kpesklngof the extraordinary loik In the Senate
through which the now Dynttnlto Treaty with Great
llrlllan last week percolated recalls a similar Inci
dent in connection with the Alabima Claims Com
mission, when Ihe treaty relating to It was pending
ratification by the Senile Everybody knew that
iomi-(7ifiii7 touching this milter was before that
auguat body, and finally opinion took form In an ad
mitted consensus that It was something concerning
an a IJnstmentol tho question between II. D. M.'a
government an I ours as to the settlement of tho
Alabama claims At there were about (30,000,000
for damages depen ling upon an adjustment favor
able to Iho Unite I Htalos, tho business community,
especially In New York and lloston, was very greatly
Interested Ono morning after tho suspense hsd
been en lured f )r aome weeks tho Senate was struck
well nigh speechless, nnd tho Hon. Charles Sumner,
chairman of the Committee- on Foreign Relations,
nearly went Into spasms when tho New ork
Tribnnr an I Cincinnati Commercial each simul
taneously published the full text ot the treaty 1
Well, there tens a row 1 Tho representatives here of
ihcso too enterprising Journals wero Mr. Z. L
White, now editor of tho I'rovldcnco (It. I )
Mir, and Mr. II. J. Ilamsdcll.a distinguished Jour
nalist of this city. Theso gentlemen represented
in the hlgheit degree thebestsodal and professional
standard among the corps ol special correspondents.
They wero at once baled before tho barof tho Sen
ate to answer for their dereliction, for It was an
enormous offense In the eyes of Mr. Sumner and
hlaroiiaboiolriim ol tho Foreign Committee. Uf
course tho gentlemen peremptorily declined to tell
anything Eich Senator ha 1 his copy ot the Treaty
lately lockcJ up, and now under Ihe sun did It leak
out J A special committee ot tho Senate condemned
them to he confined In the Capital building for their
contumely until they purged themselves ot the con
tempt by telling wilt the Senile wantelto know.
You remember the end of It. They were shut up for
awhile, and tho offen led body, finding they cinld
not be In luced to tell, released them wit's tho' glory
of having male the biggest "tcoop"of tho period.
I was told long after but not by either ot tho gentle
men who wero princlpits-ttnt among tho members
of the committee which adjudged them to be In con
tempt of tho Semtc, and sentenced them to punish
ment, was the very bcutl r through whom the in
tormalDnant coveted Trolly hallietn obtained t
lie knew they would never tell, aud they sat ns lin
passlvo si one of tho luarblo statues outsldo tho
Senate door, whl'o he remonstrated with them for
their conduct. The (Senator In question wss a great
man, a leidlng Republican from one of Ihe power
ful Western States, and ts now dead.
It teems rather strange to me that the Senate,
after aomtny years of alverse experience, has not
learned that when a well-trained newspaper man
really wants to know auytblug, he will Inevitably
and It out, no matter how many hart and bolts aro
put on Ihe doors After somo years or experience
and observation, I h no net er known of an Impor
tant circumstance In the Senate which did not leak
out, In spile of all that coul I bo done to prevent It,
tn view of all this. It really docs teem wonderful
that to sensible a body of men will conllnuo to go
through tho burlesquo ot secret sessions that are no
more secret th in Is tho ostrich, who thinks It Is con
cealed from tho liuuter when It buries Its heal In
the tan 1. As It i anuot then see tho pursuer, It
foolishly supposes Itself hid len from the enemy.
The current number of tho Atlantic Monthly con
tains a notably ablo ankle, entitled "The Indian
Queallon in Arizona," from Iho pen of Lieut. Robert
Kennon Evans, Twelfth United States Infantry. It
dealt with the subject In so clear and sensible a light
that I wish every member of the Cabinet and Con
gressman might read an I profit by It. The writer Is
a young officer of tho Army, who went to West
Point from Secretary Lainar't old district In Missis
sippi, and has served most ot tho time since
hit graduitlon-ln lSIft-ln Ariz out and on
ihe New Mexican frontier. The honor of being
given ao prominent a place In Ihe scholarly Atlantic
Is exceptions), espi dally when the matter treated of
It a question of such Immense Importance and ao
difficult of practical solution. It It an Interesting
tlgn ol Ihe limes lo nolo tho appearance or
many ot Ihe yuungcr officers ol Hie Army as con
tributors to the best Amcrli tn Journals and monthly

OUR LONDON LETTER.
The American Aclort It the PrllUht'sr-llsl.
(National Press Intelligence Co.'t Foreign Special.
Londoh, Kno , July 10, 1890.
The choice ot Stratford on-Avon as the scene of
tho celebration of the Fourth ol .Inly by a represent
ative band ot Americans must bo regarded as a
happy thought, and Mr. Daly's company at come
dians found themselves doubly at home on this
historical occasion In the aacred precincts ot Shakes
peare's town. After drlvlngthronghthequalntetrccta
ot Warwick, where they allghte I on their Journey
from London, lunching at that hospitable hoslolry,
the Warwick Arms Hotel, and Inspecting thaUioble
restoration, Warwick CBMler-Wey-Trtwcedeilto
Stratford by way of Uarford (of course tot memoryV
take) and Charlccote, skirting the beautiful park In
which tho Uard of Avon shot the deer, and from
which he was summoned to the angnit presence ol
Squlro Lucy. How thoroughly tho Artists fomous
for their Interpretation ot "Tho Merry Wives of
Windsor " entered Into the splrltof the excursion
was further proven on iho following day, when they
visited In torn Ann Hathaway s cottago, bearing away
wllh them roses and bcartseaso as souvenirs of
that scnjmental spot, lingered nt Shakespeare's
birthplace and tomb, taking with them "rose
mary for remembrance," and Inspected all tho curi
ous relics ot tho Museum and tho Memorial Theatre,
on tho stage of which Miss Kenan spoke an Im
promptu epilogue. That this charming actress '
dcstlncd-pcrhnps as Rosalind to excel as an In
terpreter ot IheDard was Indicated by Ihe action
ot one ot the swans on the river, which, deserting or
Ignoring the other boats, Balled graciously toward
that In which Miss Rehan sat, thus enabling her to
share a distinction conferred upon MlssMsry Ander
son by one of these sagacious birds. Inthemlndaof
the superstitious this Incident was big with promise;
The Memorial Thestro wonld be an appropriate
acene for a representation of "Tho Merry Wives ot
W Indsor," "Twelfth Night," or "Love's Labor Lost,"
wllh all of which comedies Mr. Daly has from time
to time Identified himself, bnt the engagements of
the company are such as to present such a represen
tation. "Tho Glorious Fourth" was pledged In the
conrse of dinner at the Red Horse Hotel, and a sail
on tho tranquil river, with a new moon In the sky to
lend the last touch ot romance to the twilight scene,
brought the day to a close. Mist Rehan, Mrs. Gil
bert, Mr. Drew, and Mr. James Lewis, as wed as
Miss Irwin, Mr. George Partes, Mr. Gilbert, and an
actor who was formerly In tho Shakespearean rep
ertoire, Mr. oils bkinncr, were Included In the party
that made this entertaining pilgrimage to Ihe shrine
ol the great master.
Daly's season In London has now but three weeks
more to run. Tho reception extended to "Nancy A
Co." Is so cordial at to show that the final represen
tations will be as brilliant as tho earlier ones. Tho
critics have uniformly praised this vivacious comedy
and He animated nnd finished representation, and
the Strand Theatro Is overcrowded nightly with en
thusiastic spectators. Lord Londesborough Is one
of tho most constant patrons of the season, and has
already personally expressed to Mr James Lewis
his warm admiration ot that comedian and his as
sociates. The Americans In London, loo, nro con.
slant to their New 1 ork favorites. Mr. and Mra. W.
IC. VanderblH havo occupied a box on more than
The comedians continue lo be high In favor
socially. The curiosity uf ihePrlncoot Wales has
been excited by the accounts that have come to him
of the comlqne talents ol tho American company,
and he Is said to be trying to find a disengaged even,
log or afternoon during thla busy month of July to
personally acquaint himself with their merits. The
dennnits upon the tlmonml attention of this great
personsgo during the Lundon season are so great as
to be scarcely understood by those who do not real
ize that with over-worked royalty every hour of the
day Is set apart far Borne publlo function or social
engagement. Races, cattle shows, the distribution
of prizes, etc , follow In unceasing rotation, and
when to theso are added lunches, dinners, suppers,
dances, and receptions, It will be seen that the
Prince has to make a decided effort to free himself
for a few hours In which to visit tho play. Tho
members of Mr. Daly's company have since their
Stratford visit enjoyed that bcautirul sight, Ihe
Henley rrgatla, and the oxcltlng and picturesque
scenes that attend the cricket matches at Lord's.
Miss Renin, Mr. James Lewis, and Mr. John Drew
have, moreover, found a few moments lu which to
attend tho private view of a portrait of the Tope,
painted by a young artist a fa tiiortv, Mr. Thaddcus
Jones, who hat succeeded to a remarkable degree

London, Eno .July 10, i860
I am Just off to Paris lo rejoin Lillian Olcott, who
has really succeeded In securing sll the American
rights to Ssrdon'a "1 hcodora," In spite of Ihe fact
that Sarah Bernhardt, the great original of the pari,
It In South America with heart burnings for more
northern latitudes later on,
Mr. Will Stuart hat promised to write yon about
Ibe Daly tour to Stratlord-on-Avon.
I have only time for a word about the production
of "Nancy and Company" night before last. It was
the success of Ihe Daly troupe, without any ques
tion; hut here It Is talked of In the papers, clubs,
and Ihestrcs at Ibe greatest comedy success ever
known In London within Ihe memory of living
critics, actors, and habitues. People were turned
alwty from boxes, stalls, and pit nlgnt before last;
and, from the condition of the box sheet at this
moment, must bo turned awar every night for a
week to come. "Nancy and Company" will un
doubtedly run to the end of the London engage
ment, and I doubt If Mr. Daly produces anything
else In Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dublin, or Liverpool,
unless It be to give tho people of those cities a taste
of the varied qualities ot his company.
Nancy lilhe only really good original part which
Miss Rebau baa played here, aud her personal suc
cess In II U Immense. All the London authors want
lo write plays for her, (that la tho crowning of suc

Nothing could be In worse tuate or raoro unfair.
The treatment ot Rice a troupe waa thoroughly de

do much to firing a condition of affairs whli h every

from circulation, and bo either hoarded or exported.

Senator Iltilr, from tho Commlttco on Pensions,

that "before tho pisstgo of the bill the Commis
sioner of Pcnalons, tn Ignorance ot the action ol

and that tho President was unwilling that a man
worthy tn le placed on the pension roll should bo a

"Tho President could not have been familiar with
