HOBSONS RANK
Near the Top of the Command
ers List and Soon a Captain
Whether he Accepts However is
Curiously Enough a Matter of
Doubt
Washington March 3 The
Presidents nomination of Rich
mond Pearson Hobson to be ad
vanced ten numbers from No 1 on
the list of Assistant Navy Con
structors is said by naval officers
to constitute the greatest material
promotion as a recognition of gal
lantry in the history of the naval
service It will make Hobson a
Captain at the age of 30
His advancement amounts to 250
numbers in the line of the navy
which is remarkable in comparison
with the single number secured by
Admiral Dewey eight numbers by
Admiral Sampson and from three
to live each by other officers during
the war with Spain When it was
proposed to promote Hobson to the
foot of the grade of Lieutenant Corn
inanders the iutnp amounted to
about 150 numbers only but under
the nomination made yesterday
Hobson skips over all the Lieuten
ant Commanders and goes nearly
to the top of the Commanders list
so far as relative rank is concerned
Of the seven naval constructors
who continue superior to him three
will speedily retire -Constructor
Feaster next August Constructor
Barnum in April next ear and
Chief Constructor Hichborn who
under the new personnel law ranks
as Rear Admiral on March 4 1901
On that date Constructor Hobson
will take the rank and pay of Cap
tain Not until Aug 17 following
will he reach the age of 31 The
lunior Captain of the navy on Jan
1 was Cipt Edwin White com
manding the Hagship Philadelphia
and he was 5 years old when he
received his commission
Constructor Hobson therefore
gains about twenty six years In
the ordinary course of promotions
in the naval construction corps
however Hobson will not reach
the senior position of Constructor
before 1922 or ten years before his
own retirement and in the mean
time he will remain twenty one
years in the grade of Captain
which is nearly three times as long
as officers ordinary retain that
rank
Whether Constructor Hobson will
accept the promotion given him is
cunousls enough a matter of doubt
to those with whom he talked be
fore he started for Hong Kong Im
mediately after the sinking of the
Merrimac the advancement of ten
numbers was offered to him but he
hesitated to accept it exhibiting a
strong preference for transfer and
promotion in the line at the foot of
Lieutenant Commanders He left
the impression with his friends that
he aspired to secure the same pro
port onate advancement in thatarm
of the serv ice as had been offered to
him in the staff corps amounting
to 250 members which would have
resulted in his becoming the senior
Hear Admiral ot the service at the
aire of 40
THE POPE IS ALL RIGHT
Sufficiently Recovered to Indulged
In the Composition of Poetry
Rome March 3 The physicians
of the Pope say the are quite sat
istied with his condition When
leaving the pontiff last evening-
inev pretncieii lor nun a long nie
Before going to leep the Pope
wrote 1 poem which was a descrip
tion ot his case as analogous to
one which happened to Clement XII
He read the poem this morning to
the doctors The latter urgently
advised absence from all movement
if the patient w ished to recover in
live or six days
Murder Statictics
The Hartford Herald publishes a
list of murders that has occurred in
Ohio county in the last 72 years
which shows that 34 human lives
have been taken in that tune As
that county is not noted for its law
lessness and as its killings may be
very conservatively taken as an
average it will be easily figured
that 2042 murders have been com
mitted in thp State in the last three
score years Verily human life is
the cheapest thing in Jventuky

America Wooldridges Damago
Suit Against Col Jordan Giles
Is Compromised
The sensational damage suit filed
by America Wooldridge against
Col Jordan Giles has been settled
by a compromise and further pro
ceedings will be quashed -
The terms of the compromise bO
far as The Sun can ascertain are
kept secret hence the public is left
to guess at random It is known
however that the compromise was
effected by Mr Wooldridge and
Col Giles without the aid of the
formers attorneys
This compromise leave the pub
lic as much in the dark as ever as
to the foundation of the charges
made Col Giles declares that it
was a blackmailingscheme and that
the suit was brought for the pur
pose of extorting money from him
but whether it worked or not is not
given out with the announcement
of the compromise Sun
The March number of Scribners
shows Governor Roosevelt in the
sort of description that he likes best
a narrative of a fight With his
usual candor he callsthis General
Youngs Fight at Guasimas and
pays a hearty tribute to his brig
ade commander and to the regulars
who won equal honors with the
Rough Riders in that skirmish
Any one who reads the colonels ac
count will have no belief in the sto
ry af an ambush The advance
w as carefully planned out by con
sultation of the leadingofficers and
every commander knew exactly
what was expected of him
THE LAW OF LYING
Tno calling h iiihu a liar is a crime
in Virginia The legislature of
1S5 passed this law If any
person shall in the presence or hear
inn of another curse or abuse such
person or use any violently abusive
hiugiiage to auy p rsou concerning
himself 01 any of tus female relative

To eall a man a liar in Georgia i
s auiler for which one may bj given
l0n0or one year in the penitenti
a ry or both He has the right how
ever to prove his charge aud go clear
Ou the criminals Bide of the courts
the law holds that the He constitutes
the first blow aud justifies violent re
spoune
The Misioun statute says that if a
victim of an insult used laugauge cal
culated to pr voke a breach of the
peace aud the assailant ean prove it
there is no of calling a inau a
liar
In Arkausas to use an epithet is
a mi deinenuor punishable by a fiue
In Mississippi a law is not peijifically
mentioned tit alt insulting words
are made civilly aeii hm1i In
South Carolina it is not a crime but
may be used as a basis 1 f civil action
for defamation of character
The West Virginia statute declares
that All words which from their
uoiialcoustructiou aud common accep
tation are coustrued as insults and
tend to violence and hrfeiich of the
peac snail be actionable
It is not a crime to use the liar in
Alabama but if a man rrmiiUb you in
consequence of your application of the
epithet to him he may give evidence
in justification of any nr oppro
brious language you lnveusedto
bim The avernge jury in that date
holds that the lie is equivalent to the
first blow
In North Carolina the user of the
epithet aud the nun o whom it was
applied are held equally guilty in
casses of assault aud battery
There is no specific law in Tennes
see against calling a nnu a liar but
the use of language calculated to pro
voke a b each of the peace is punish
able by a nominal fine
It is also dangerous to call a man a
liar in Kentucky
