The case of the clerks who were wit

Wise, who said that not ojie cletk who
told the truth then had ever been aide to

"Now. when lliore is crookedness in n

Washington'. Oct 4 President Taft
hos'boen asked to review the most impos
ing naval demonstration ever held in
American waters. It will take place at
New York early in November. Secretary
of Ihe Navy Meyer has written a letter
to Mr Taft asking him to terminate his
present trip at New York city on Novem
ber 1 instead of at Washington, as
is Contemplated. Whether Mr Taft
will be nhle to change his itinerary and
attend the review or not. Secretary
Meyer will be on hand to inspect tile as
sembled vessels
TJie Riobtllaatlon of all the available
vessels on the Atlantic const at New York
has been decided on in place of a fall
cruise Recently there have been many
protest! fron officers of the Atlantic
fleet that they have been Worked too
hard by protracted foreign cruises This
sentiment led to the abandonment of
tentative plans for a cruise to the West
Indies and the Panama Canal Which had
been scheduled for October IS next.
Mr Meyer thinks that the efficiency of
the navy would be promoted quite as much
by an unexpected mobiUaetlon of a large
fleet as hy cruises, For thia reaaon and
in view of tiie opposition among officers
and men of the navy to a cruise, he de
cided upon the mobilization.
While the list of ships to participate in
tin- demonstration hasnol been selected,
il will lie the aim of Rear Admiral Richard
Wainwiighl to have as many veaaela .as
possible present. 'There will be about
twenty-five battleships, sixteen belonging
to the Atlantic licet and nine or ten bat
Ilea hips of the reserve fleet. Armored
cruiers. gunboats, destroyers and sub
marines will also take part. Both in size
and in naval strength the aggregation
of war vessels will be far superior to thai
at Oyster Bay on Labor Pay. Its Ml. when
tiie last naval review was held At that
time a total of about forty-live fighting
Vessels were arrayed in command of Hear
Admiral Robley 1 Evans for review by
President Hoosevelf. There were then
only eighteen battleships in the fleet
Next month ihe new dreadnoughts
Florida and 1'tah. recently placed in com-
misslon, which have a displacement
of g,000 Ions, will lead in size The
fleei will be in command of Hear Admiral
Hugo Oaterhaui 'The spectacle will
last only about three days. There will Is?
short divisional cruises, but the fleet
will remain in hotns waters until earlv
in January, w hen it will proceed to Quan
fanarao for a period of extensive battle
exorcises with the torpedo fleet which
will last until ihe middle or ,.luf 0f f'(.,.
niary. 1012
A similar mobilization will take place
on ill" Pacific COASt, where they Will Is
assembled near Los Angeles This gather
ing of war vesaela, however, will ls much
smaller than on the Atlantic coast be
cause comparatively few of the naval
e-sels are stationed oil the Pacific
The officers on duly in the Nitvy De
partment have already begun arrange
menta for the forthcoming tnobiliaatioui
While it Was Intended to keep the matter
secret a long as possible so that it would
Is" in the nature of a surprise t-st Secre
tary Meyer's plans leaked out All the
orders neoeaaary for the carrying out
of the plans of the Department have not
been sent out, ulthough the movement
is well on its wav The officers of the
Department originally intended to spring
the mobilisation without much notice
m order I hat i the administrative ma
chinery of Ihe Department and the navy
yards would lie tested lo ascertain their
state of prcpartsdness for emergency.
This became impossible W'hen Mr. Meyer's
plan was made public. As it is the navy
will have only gboul four weeks to pre
pare for the test
Il was said to-night that no decision
had been reached as to the number of
war vessels now in reserve which will
be placed in commission to take part
in the demonstration This will protuthly
depend upon the number of seamen
available from the training stations.

Romf. Oct. S. Despatches giving a con
vincing picture of the Italian attack on
Tripoli have at last been received One
from a vessel in the fleet is ss follows
"Ov BoARnrn-R Italia CnriBxnroATii,
"The further delay granted by the
Italian Oovernrn'mt expired st '' P M.
The commander of the Turkish fnrots
st Tripoli again refused at that hour to
surrender. Admiral Faravelli, command
ing tho Italian squadron, thereupon :n
structed tho commanders of the veastla
to bombard the fortresses of Tripoli.
"The foreign consulates, having been
warned that hostilities wero about lo
commence, hoisted their flags very high
in order to protect properly the lives of
European- .
"Then tne Italian worships drew up
before the port of Tripoli at a short din
tance from one another. The first wus
the Benedetto Btin. flying the Admiral's,
flag She was followed by the Rome.,
Napoli. Sicilia. Francesco Ferrucio. Gari
baldi. Agordat, Piss Amali, 8ardegna
and Cestit.
"The destroyers cruised rapidly about
between the warships and the city while
another squadron spread fanlike behind
the tnen-o'-war with theevident object of
avoiding surprises by the enemy.
"Other warships were despatched to
the villages of Sensue. Samia and Suava
on one side and to Java. Sobda. Sllten
and as far as Mosurata on the other.
Other ships patrolled the Gulf of Sidra
between Mesurata and Rengazi, to the
other side of Bengazi and in the Gulf rf
Bomba a far aa Port Dubni.
"The other men-o'-war were drawn in
line of battle, so that the whole roast of
Tripoli and Cyrenaica is covered be ween
Derna and Crete The Mediterranean
is guarded so that 'here is no possibility
of attack on tho part of the Turkish fleet
or by destroyers.
"The enthusiasm in the fleet increisd
as it approached the city. Every man
was in his place and ready to flre The
general movement was vague. A nolss
of universal bustle ran along the line of
warships, although on hoard the sups
everybody waa silent. The moment waa
a solemn one
"Then an order was transmitted from
ship to ship and from mouth to mouth
like an echo of a single word Suddenly
all the vessels battleships, cruisers,
torpedo boats, destroyers and trans
ports hoisted their colors. The harlKir
took on the appearance of a holiday
gathering or the celebration of a festival
after long anxiety and waiting.
"It is not death:' it is the life of civili
zation that is lo follow.
"But there was still another signal.
The vessels began to move. They came
into line with singular and marvellous
majesty. It waa like an invitation 10
the 'Turkish army, hidden in the forer-ls
behind Tripoli, to strike its colors
"Then the entire fleet steamed past
Tripoli. The spectacle was imposing.
'Will the Turks surrender and the war be
finished without a gun being fired or life
sacrificed'' This was the query that
every one put to himself and his com
rades But another order waa givea
and the fleet arranged itself once more
before Tripoli in order of battle. Tha
summons of surrender was repeated
"The procession of a minute ago wax
a summons to surrender, a last appeal to
tho Turks by the Admiral commanding,
to give way and avoid useless bloodshed.
But th" appeal was not crowned with
success. 'The Turks were resolved to
resist .
"Immediately there is a development.
Action begins. The warships hurl their
first projectiles against tha batteries of
Tripoli. Shot after shot is sent aehoro
with regularity and precision.
"The Turks attempted to reply with
their toy guns, but Ihe shells did not
even reach Ihe Italian vessels. They fell
,lon an1 dropped into Ihe sea.
"Evidently the attacking squadron did
not wish to
dittnage the city too much.
it only aimed to destroy the forts. We
cannot deserilie these last phases of the
bombardment . as wo must hand these
pages to the commander of a torpedo
boat that isthis instant leaving for Malta."
'The foregoing despatch is an account
written by an Italian newspaper cor
respondent on board the Italian warship.
A Government mwsage received at Rome
gives a confirmatory account of Ihe bom

firing ligan at 3 .in and continued luttil
sunset The 'Turkish Iwitteries replied
feebly and without effect The squadron

took pains to spare private residences,

the forts was demolished
