Washington, May II -The N vy Dr?
partment made no offer to Schl?y ol thf
conuiiand of the Asiastic sfatinn ,i- tin
Huccessor of Admiral Dewey, to which
Admiral Watson has heen assigned.
There is no question had Admiral
Schley been asked to accept the detail
he would have been gratili? d, for it in
a proat honor to command what i? now
regarded as the most Important of all
the live naval stations of the (?v.rtt
ment.
This second affront is all the more
offensive in view of the promises made
Schley last December to give him a sea
command, and if none was available
"one would be created for hira. " Since
then two flag officers have been ordered
to command foreign station-, Admir. 1
Howison having been assigned to the
South Atlantic and Admirul Watson to
the Asiastic. Iu neither case was Ad
mirai Schley considered, it was the
direot intention of the Navy Depatt
ment all along to continne Admiral
Schley on waiting orders or provide him
with some inconspicuous shore lullet,
and one was finally found when he was
ordered as president of the examining
board two weeks ago The president of
this board has vety little to do. Bri ken
down, decrepit or indifferent olliccrs
are generally given such duty.

The Imb'X-Appeal says;
"The Kiehiiioiiii maas ? mooting of last
W? dnesday was not strong on the score
of oratory. Beaden who have been in
tin* habit of attending political nutt?
ing- in Virginia during the past decade
or two cm form a very just e-ti
mate of the meeting's quality in this
(QspCOt when it is stated that the Hon.
John Goode was faoilfl princeps among
the speakers on that occasion. Mr
Montague fj a Huent and forcible talker,
but his VOioe is harsh, his gestures ec?
centric and his articulation is not only
peculiar but pu/./.ling. He is doubtless
a man of force and brains, bat the heat
he exhibited in his attack on the Wash?
ington I'ost'H correspondence betrayed
a lack if poise and ??elf-restraint that
may prove fatal to his success as a de?
bater if not corrected in time. Mr.
Jones is neither an orat >r nor a good
talker. His voice has sutlicieut volume,
but is not pleasing or persuasive in
tone, and he is apparently deficient in
spontaniety of thought and expression.
Ho was the unquestioned idol and leader
of the meeting, and he is probably a
man of solid qualities and fine execu?
tive ability. Mr. K Walton Moore has
the air of an earnest business man, and
speaks fluently and well, though on ac?
count of a throat trouble ho did net at
tempt a long speoch. "
High Velocity.
Recently at Indian Head, says the
Baltimore Sun, in testing a six-inch,
forty-five calibre naval gun a velocity
of 3,000 feet a second is said to have
been made. The Krupp gun of approx?
imately the same calibre has a record
of 2.?35 feet per second ; the Schneider
(Janet gun of 1,911 feet per second; the
Elswick gun of 2,1)40 feet The longer
the gun the higher the velocity within
certain limits. The English say the
highest velocities wear the gun out too
fast and are on that aocouut undesira?
ble.
The sixteen inch breechloader to be
m miited at Sandy Hook next September
la fifty feet long and weighs 123 tons.
It fires a shot weighing 2,400 pounds
with a mnzzle velocity of about 2,200
fent per second.with a ramming energy
of SI 000 foot tons This ramming
force is about that nf a big battleship
when going fourteen miles an hour.
