Wmahlngton, Jan. 8. The Tribune's 'lis?-;.?sures
rej-ardlng the faulty and dUhroesI work of the
ccntraotors on Drydock No. .". .at the New-Tork
Navy Yani have arrested ihe attention of a
good many Congressmon snd excited s lively in?
terest Already Intlmatl ma are heard that an in
vestlgatlon by a commltl.t Congress may be
n.T.ssary in order to gel at all the facts and fix
the Maine where Ii properly b?-i..n?,-s. A?nongthoee
who offered this m*\\ ltd n was a member of the
House Commltl.n Naval Affairs, who re?
marked that "A naval court of Inquiry. M-e '?
military court, Is too apt t.. whitewash the sc
< used if h?. be an officer In the service."
on all sides the friends and Bupporters of the
existing naval ?policy express deep regret that
the facts Justify Tin- Tribune's exposures. They
fear not only that ba l and dishonest work may
be found elsewhere which has been done under
ths supervision of th? Bureau of Yards and
Docks, bul that ?rreal snd unlook??d-for difficulty
will be expertei..1 in Inducing Congress to vote
needful appropriation! f'.r the enlargement of
si me of the Government drydocka now in exist?
ence and the building "f two or more new ones
bis en.iucrh safely to take in and accommodate
th?> larp.st shirs of th-. new Navy
One Congr? asman said to-day: "It's a very bad
niess. Tl.fncers of the Navj Department seem
f> have had bad lack with all the drydocka Tw.
of them nave been placed where ihe depth of
water is not sufficient to allow th.- big Bhlps a
safe psiesaga to them; there '..? something t!..
matter with th" one un Puget Sound, I have
heard, and we an- asked, year after year, for
money to stop leaks and e.rr.'rt faults of c? n
structlon In those at the New-Tork Navy Tard.
It is especially unfortunate to find at this time
Buch a condition of affairs as that which exl
In regard to Drydock No. .'!. Anything avhlch Im?
pairs th... confidence "f Congress in the ability,
vigilance and efficiency, to say nothing of the
Integrity, "f th- officers who are charged with
the duty and responsibility "f building sh';.s .r
guns or drydocks will be a serious obstacle when
the effnrt is made to obtain necessary appropria?
tions for tin se objects."
Bbeppard Homans, th" well-known actuary,
died suddenly last night "ti a park bench at
Slxth-ave. and Flfty-nlnth-st. He was a i?as
smiKer on a Bell Line car that passed the Park
at t?:.'lO p. m. The conductor >?f the ear noticed
Mr. Homans'a Illness and he called Park Police?
man Cooney to hla aid. Cooney assisted the sh-k
man from the car and placed him on the bench
and th?-n hastily called an ambulance.
Or. McNlder, of Roosevelt Hospital, r???aponded
to the summons, but d??ath ha.i already come.
The body was taken to the Arsenal and
searched by Sergeant Howard. He found a. card
of membership in the Bnglewood Field Club of
Englewooai, N. J., bearing the name of Mr.
Homans. Th ire was also a card bearing the ad?
dreas of Hcorge S. C'oe, Jr., of No. 281 West
Pev.-nty-flrft-st., to whose house Mr. Homans
was believed to have been going when taken 111.
This address proved to be erroneous, but at
the same time gave additional light on the
Identity of the dead man. Allan McCullob, a
lawyer, with offices at No. 120 Broadway, lives
In No. 281 West Beventy-flrst-st. His son
Arthur was th?- only person at renne When in?
quiry was made there. He said h-> know Mr.
Homans. and believed from the des, ?-i i ? t i? ?r i that
the dead man was Mr. H? mans
Mr. Homans lived in .? handsome nj.artment
hous" at Nu. 4S \v, t Flfty-nlnth-st, and it
was within flftv feet of his home that he died.
After some delay the body was taken there, af?
ter it had been i.n late In the evening by one
of Mr. Homans's sons
Mr. Homans was born in Baltimore, and was
about sixty-six years ..Id. His father was a
magasine editor. After working for a time in
St Louis he entered Harvard C ?. nd paid
his way through Later he engaged In railroad
building, and then became an expert mathema?
tician. He was actuar? of the Mutual Life In?
