Wireless Much Used.
The cable still is being much used in these days, but the main
reliance of the navy department for communication between shore
stations and men of war now scattered along both coasts of Mexico
are the wireles towers at Key West, Guantanamo and Arlington.
Sn perfect were the plans laid out and reduced to form months
ago by the student ollicers of the naval war college, covering possible
operations of the navy against Mexico* that there was little for the
general board to do beyond keeping up to the moment in matters
of d?tail. Becuuse of the almost non existence of a Mexican navy,
conditions winch Amreican sailors may meet are quite unlike those
covered in the utans, of campaign prepared for other countries.
Generally th? Mexican plan covers elementary problems, such as
the stimultaneoiis;. establishment of an efficient blockade, which the
rather extensive c?g$t 1?U? of Mexico would make no small task:
Next in order-cosiesi?he seizure of certain ports,' and this is where
the painstaking ?and exhaustive drills of the marine regiments1 lasl
Fall-and Winter are expected" to lind their application. The whole
modern theory of advance base operation with the marines as an
,actlve force was planed to meet just euch emergencies as the rapid
seizure of a port in a'hostile country to form a base to be held for the
arrival of an army of occupation.
To Move Overland.
About the only.olher feature of naval activity in the beginning
of hostile operations, at least, would be the dispatch by land of an
expeditionary for?e t? hold important staitcgic points, such as the
great trestle on the Vera' Cruz Mexico City railroad, supposed to be
the key to the posession of that road. And with the lifteen thousand
or mor? men in his. fleet; Admiral Badger could spare a force am
ple for that purpose^
I.aler it? tlit? dav. and after the adjournment bf thc board meeting,
the Admirals went to. the navy department building and awaited the
return of Secretary Daniels. The only order that wa" issued from the
department during the forenoon was that sent to Pensacola, instruct
ing Commander Sims to fall in line behind the fleet with'his flotilla of
torpedo boat -destroyers," I* in number and the flagship crusier Bir
mingham and tender Dixie. The vessels had been held in leash since
Tuesday last under orders to "stand by," and it was explained that
today's order, which was isued by Admiral Blue on his own authority,
was simply in execution of the original design- _ ^ '
