Interruption In Important work for which provision had been made In the allotment of funds has occurred at the Portsmouth, N. H., and Puget Sound navy yards, because of the groat difficulty or obtaining i competent workmen. Such a state of afj fairs has not been known before. At Portsj mouth work has been stopped on the new | seagoing tug In favor of more urgent re! pair work, and at the Paget Sound yard W'jrk was suspended on the Oregon and the | Wisconsin so that the Nebraska might be j ready for service and repairs needed on the Chicago and Charleston first completed. Tho Saratoga to Be Sold. The old warship Saratoga is to be sold at auction. The vessel has been in use as a nautical training ship by the state of Pennsylvania for several years, and has been returned to the commandant of the League Island navy yard.

It Is understood that the combined department of mathematics and mechanics recommended by what la known as the Walnwright board, as the result of Its recent investigation of the curriculum at the Naval Academy, will be in charge of Professor of Mathematics Stlmson J. Brown. Since Capt. C. J. Badger assumed the duties of superintendent of the academy, about two weeks a#o, he has made a speniol in ,-v v. -txi t cc iu iiiu urpai iiuciik 111 icgai u IU the recommendations made by tho Wainwrlght board. The Navy Department approved most of the recommendations made, but It is understood that Capt. Badger urges that only a few of tho changes, which had been approved, be made, including the consolidation of mathematics and mechanics. Appointment of Midshipmen. Following the graduation of the first class at the Naval Academy next June there will be about three hundred vacancies in the po. sltion of midshipmen, -which nvust be tilled by appointments between now and March 4 next. The vacancies include those caused by failures In the examinations, resignations, discharges, etc. There are to be two examinations for admission to the academy, the first being held in various cities and towns throughout the country the third Tuesday in April under the auspices of the civil service commission, and the second the third Tuesday of June at the Naval Academy. New Cooking and Baking School. A cooking and baking school for the navy Is to be established at the naval training station, Newport, R. I., In charge of Paymaster EJugene F. Hall. The plan approved contemplates sending to the school those cooks and bakers who re-enlist, the purpose ultimately being to have cooks, bakers and commissary stewards hold diplomas of the school. The course Is to include instructions in cooking and baking, with the practical work altorded by the conduct of the large general mess at the naval training station. Soldiers Commended for Gallantry. Certificates of merit have been awarded by the War Department to Quartermaster Sergt. John W. Ash and Corporal Preston Askew, both of Company E, 24th Infantry, for conspicuous gallantry In action against the PulaJanes at Tabon-Tabon. Lcvte. P. I.. July 24, 11KK5. The certificate in the case of each of these men says: "By his fine example and cool bravery, when the command, consisting; of about ten men of the 24th United States Infantry and a detachment of constabulary, was surrounded, he did much to bring the engagement to a successful conclusion." A certificate was also awarded to Lewis Broadus, first sergeunt, Company M, 25th Infantry, for "coolness, presence of mind and bravery" at Fort Niobrara, Neb., July 3, "In rushing In on a man armed with a rille and Intent on murder, and, at imminent risk to himself, seizins: and de fleeting the aim of the rifle Just before it was fired, thereby saving the lives of others." fedro Yambao, quartermaster sergeant, 6th Company, Philippine Scouts, was awarded a certificate of merit for "good conduct September 10, 10U6, in assuming command of his company of Philippine Scouts when his commanding officer was killed In an engagement with Pulajanes, routing the enemy and recovering the body of his commanding officer, and personal bravery September 11, llXMi, in keeping ills own men from returning ihe fire when fired on through error by American troops at short range and fearlessly exposing himself by advancing to the front and waving his rifle and his hat until he was recognized, thereby stopping the lire of the American troops and preventing further casualties while a sergeant, 6th Company, Philippine Scouts." Military Discharges by Purchase. In view of the difficulty experienced by the military authorities In obtaining neces mviiy rocruiis wr ia? uriuy iuciv is <t kiu"" j lng belief In various quarters that the dls- j charge-by-purchase system should be abolished. When recruits were more easily obtainable the practice of releasing men from < the service before the expiration of their enlistment contract caused no serious embarrassment. But even then discharge by purchaae was a costly thing, in that it gave ! the government no return for the time and , money spent In training the man for the duties of th? soldier. For the first six 1 month* the new recruit is of little real i military value; yet the expense of his training and maintenance has to be paid, the . expectation being that after becoming proficient In his duties he will remain In the 1 service until he has served the full period i of his enlistment. The money he pays for a discharge before tiie expiration of his term is no adequate return for what the ' government has disbursed on h!s account, ami, it is contended, the abolition of the practice would be in the interest not only , Of economy, but of military efficiency. A High Tribute to Bluejackets. Rear Admiral William T. Swinburne, commanding the second squadron of the J Pacific fleet, has written an article on "The Navy and the Man," in which he says: "The i standard of efficiency among our men is vastly higher than it was a few years ago. We have Just come from fleet target prac- ' tice at Magdalena bay. There each man is 1 trained to act with other men as in actual : wiir He is trained exaetlv how to do each i tiling, and must perform his duty in the ] safest, swiftest and most intelligent man- ] ner, without any individuality, acting as a 1 part of a machine. The moment lie at- 1 tempts to put individuality into what he ' does hts usefulness is gone. He must obey j orders exactly, without personal bias whatsoever. This magnificent disclplino obtains in ail parts of the ahlp the year round. It ] becomes second nature to th? men. Our j sailors represent the highest type of physical manhood'. To begin with, they are a'.l American citizens; none others are now permitted to enlist. That rule Is strict. Physically the men are unsurpassed. Reports show that often 70 to SO per cent of the applications to enlist are rejected. In fact, the class of men now In our fleet is beyond question the very pick and flower of our nation's young manhood. After all it is discipline that d<>e3 young men good. Prompt, unwearying response, hearty support of orders, make for efficient lighting force. Discipline in our navy was never hieher. results never more happy than at present. We have not only the finest young men, but the best trained, sagacious, intelligent and patriotic class of sailors the world has ever seen." A Military Rolling Oven. There has been received at Washington barracks from Europe a military rolling oven, such as is us^d in the British army. Arrangements are being made to take tins wagon out on a practice inarch at the first opportunity. The experts who have looked at the vehicle say it Is altogether too heavy for military us?, but it is hoped by testing it to deveiop a vehicle which will answer i lit? purpose in mis tuunuj. * ??*= 1 1 the vehicle is to bake bread on the road,so Hint when troops go into camp they will lind fresh bread awaiting them. In some countries it could not be us;'d, and lt^ is hardly likely to b? employed where tlie marches are long or sudden. Moreover, there is disinclination In the army to add to the rolling stock, which lias a tendency to Impede the movement of the army In the field. Safe Paint for Warships. The plan of reducing the danger of fire on board ships of war is now the subject of some Important tests which are being conducted at the navy yards, it has been JAVYNEWS suggested by some naval officers that painl used on shipboard would communicate fire and an effort Is to be made to obtain s paint which is not inflammable. The ord nance officers believe that In time of wai the contact of a shell with the side of f ship might possibly cause ignition when nc other damage was wrought, and that bj means of the paint with which the struetun is covered. The ordnance officers at th? naval proving grounds at Indian Head. Md. will have erected a structure which resembles the side of a ship and covered wit! sucn pamt as is used in tne service, ttj that means it is expected to determine to practical tests and In a definite way th< extent to which there is danger from fin on account of the Inflammability of paint. All Soldiers Must Practice. In a general order to the army, Gen Duval), acting chief of staff, says that. on< object of target practice being to dissemi nate among the people the kn?wledg< taught as far as practicable, and It beinf therefore desirable that all men leavint the company shall have received some in struction, all enlisted men of the line pres ent at the post during any part of thi practice season will, if practicable, take th< prescribed course of ritie practice so far a: the period of their service permits. Fine Record With Big Guns. The 7th Company of the Coast Artillerj Corps, under command of Capt. Will'.anr F. Hase, on duty at Fort Banks, Mass. recently made a remarkable record In tar Set practice at Fort Heath, a subpost o: Fort Banks, which is claimed to beat al the records In this country. The gunner! fired A^-inch disappearing guns so rapidlj and so accurately that they made six hits out of six shots In 3 minutes and 40 seconds on a target yards away, towed al the rate of five miles an hour. That is s net rate, as gunners estimate It, of 9.1] hits per gun per minute. The guns used s ].(HX)-pound projectile, loaded with 1!6( pounds of smokeless powder mixed.

HYATTSVILLB, July 27.?The Hyattsvllle and Berwyn base ball clubs of the 3uburban League engaged in a slugging match here this afternoon, the former getting the better of the argument by the K-ore of 9 to 7. In the first inning Hurley, Hyattsville's second baseman, tripped over the bag In attempting to execute a double play and badly sprained his hand, but pluckiiy stuck to his work. In the next Inning he tripped over the first bag In running to the base and was knocked out for a few moments. In their half of the first inning Hyattsvllle Jumped on Richmond and batted out five runs. Murray, Hyattsville's pitcher, clouted one In the woods in right field for a home run. The Berwyn players objected to several ?f I'mpire Merson's decisions, but he umpired an Impartial game. Eddie Brown relieved Richmond in the fourth Inning, and Hyattsvllle stopped scoring.
