to the effect that no effort would le

Washington. Aug. 13. The navy de
partment has selected Hear Admiral
Mortimer L. Johnson, now in command
at the Port Hoyal naval station, to suc
ceed Admiral Sanipsun In command of
the Host on navy yard when the latter
otneer shall retire. I he formal ap
pointment has not leen made, as it is
not known -how soon Admiral camp
son may wish to lie'relieved. or whether
be will wait until his retirement from
the service next Pebruary. However,
it is usual when the retirement of an
officer is ahead to look about for those
available to succeed him. and this; led
the department some weeks ago to de
termine upon Admiral Johnson for the
Admiral Not in ood Hftalth.
It" has been known for some time to
navy department officials that Admiral
Sampson is not in robust health, and
that he might des-ire to lay aside his
duties at the yard before the time of
bis retirement from the service. As to
this, however, it is stated at the navy
department that there is no definite in
formation from Admiral Sampson. He
has not asked to be relieved or indi
cated when he would like to be de
tached. It is stated that the action of
the navy department has no connection
with the Schley court of Inquiry. Offi
cials of the department were unable to
ay whether Admiral Sampson would
be summoned as a witness or would
appear orherwise before the -ourt. al
though it was said to be altogether
probable that he would be nmonsr the

In some ouarters here It Is stated
that reports Irom the Koston navy yard
regarding Sampson indicate a condi
tion of health which may make it im
perative ror ihe admiral to go into re
tirement and seclusion. Friends of Ad
miral Sampson, and bis prc.fessional
advisers also, it is said, are convinced
that be should not saibjoot himself to
the nervous strain which would be
caused by his appearance as a witness
or a particitiant in the Schley court of
Inquiry. Already it is said Sampson Is
showing the effects of the worry he has
imdergoue since the old controversy re
opened. He never has been robust
man. and it is said he has not been well
since the battle of Santiago. The
strain aud anxiety of those days left a
The possibility that Sampson may be
incapacitated leads to the speculation
as to the effect of this event on the
trial. In some quarters it is In-lieved
it would re-ult in an. indefinite post
ponement, which might.in eveut of
Sampson's failure to recover, become a
permanent abandonment. Without
Sampson as a witness it is insisted
that there could oe no satisfactory set
tlement of tho questions in dispute.
