URGES CHANGES IN NAM DEPARTMENT Secretary Bonaparte Submits Re port Containing Important Recommendations. Special to The Journal. Washington, Dec. 7.Charles J. Bo naparte, secretary of the navy, in his annual report to the president, recom mends a radical reorganization of the navy department. His suggestion is that the work of the department should be grouped into four sections, one un der the immediate direction of the sec retary, another under that of the as sistant secretary, and the remaining two under officers of flag rank. Of the last mentioned two sections, one should be intrusted with the duties now imposed upon the bureau of yards and docks, equipment, construction and GREAT COLD HOLIDAY MEN'S Buckle Arctic Overshoes for. -AND- MEN'S Storm Alaska A A Overshoes for 90Q MEN'S Storm Eubbers for MEN'S Patent Leather Goodyear Welt Bluchers fe9 CIA MEN'S Lambs Wool Slipper Soles for....

The other chief of section should be intrusted, in the main, with the direc tion of the navy as an organized and fighting force, his province being thus broader than that of the chief of the present bureau of navigation, and he, also, should have four assistants, the surgeon general, the paymaster gen eral, the commandant of the marine corps and the superintendent of the naval academy. Urges Naval Reserve. Secretary Bonaparte is strongly in favor of a naval reserve. He sug gests a reserve of about 20,000 men, and he urges upon congress the pro priety of allowing eveiy able bodied man of good moral character, within certain limits of age. who has served at least four years in the navy and been discharged with credit, to be en rolled on a reserve list, in return for which he should receive from $15 to We are headquarters for all kinds of Shoes for all kinds of weather.

He says that in perfectly clear oaseB of de sertion, the department Is frequently besieged with entreaties for a wholly undeserved clemency on the part of prominent members of the community and even of men in public office, who apparently fail to realize that a part of a deserter's punishment ought to be the blame and aversion of all good aitizens. The enactment of the statute author izing the secretary of the navy to dis miss midshipmen from the naval acad emy and regulating the punishment and procedure cases of hazing'' has had a salutary effect, and the practice is almost wholly extinct.
