MODERN METHODS APPLIED J Greater Efficiency Achieved by Sci entific Management. ADVANCE MADE IN GUNNERY Congress Asked to Reduce Number of Navy Yards?Address Be fore Economic Club. /NEW YORK, May 23 ?"Scientific Man agement," as practiced in the United States Navy, was the theme of George von L. Meyer, Secretary of the Navy, last night before the Economic Club. Secre tary Meyer told how the application of modern business and industrial science had increased the navy's efficiency, and as a measure of economy he advocated lessening the number of navy yards, and asked his hearers to aid him in this project, upon which Congress thus far had failed t'> smile. "For the pa.-^t two years within the Navy Department," said Mr. Meyer, "we have been making a study of organiza tion and the economic and scientific man | agement of the resources of the navy. Though not known by name, this has been practiced in the fleet for years, and has brought about a wonderful Increase in gunnery efficiency. Scientific manage ment experts who saw the recent battle practice tell me the battleship is the finest exhibition of scientific manage ment they have ever seen. Increase in Efficiency. "In 1898 the percentage of hits at the battle of Santiago was 3i? per cent. To day it is 33^,. although the range has increased from 3,000 yards to over 10,000 yards. The rate of fire then was one shot in five minutes, while today it is two shots in one minute. A comparison of the increased rate of firing, the in crease in the range and the percentage of this shows that we are twelve hundred times better today than we were at San tiago. This has been brought about by better appliances and by systematic study of the men and th^lr qualifica tions, and the recognition of the necessity of placing men, after a careful test, in duties in which they do the best. It means teamwork and the saving of mjn utes and even seconds, where in the in dustrial world it is a question of hours. "About ten years ago a system of competition in gunnery was established in which all the gun pointers and gun crews took part. Beneficial results were Instantaneous. Having trained and de veloped the individual, as I stated, it was necessary to co-ordinate the work of the entire gun crew in order to bring about teamwork. With this accom plished, the speed and accuracy of firing was raised to a standard of excellence which is the equal if not the superior of any navy in the world. Chief Cause of Expense. "One of the chief causes of the great expenditures in the navy is the excessive number of navy yards on the Atlantic coast and Gulf of Mexico. This has been brought about in many in stances from a desire on the part of congressmen to have navy yards lo cated in their states, while other yards which were established in colonial days have been built up unnecessarily, due to the fact that it was the ambition of the individual member to see that the yard in his state should be at least equal to those in other states, without taking into consideration its value from a military and economic point of view. As a result, we have on the Alantic coast nine navy yards, where money has been expended lavishly in some Instances, which would not have been the case if the strategic and economic point of view only had been considered. "Last year, as a beginning, I recom mended to Congress that the yards at New Orleajis. Pensacola, Port Royal, New London, Sacketts Harbor, San Juan, Cule bra and Cavlte be abolished, which would have brought about a saving, irrespective of the price which the government might have obtained for these properties, of an annual maintenance expense of $1,900, 000. Not a single navy yard was abol ished by Congress, although it has been demonstrated that every one of those yards is a needless drain upon the gov ernment's financial resources. 'Responds to Criticism. "I have been criticised by southern members for not having recommended the abolishment of any of the eastern yards, the reason being that the docks in the eastern yards were a necessity to the fleet. The eastern yards are located at Porthmouth, Boston, New York, Phil adelphia and Norfolk, and it might be well to include Charleston. It has been sometimes stated that not more than three of these well equipped navy yards are actually necessary, preserving, how ever, all the large docks for government purposes. "When the Panama canal opens and the fleet spends probably an equal amoupt of time in each ocean, the work for the Atlantic yards will be much re duced and it will be more evident that fewer will be needed. By a proper re duction in navy yards, there would be a vast saving of money in maintenance and a realisation of funds from the sale of real estate." > ANACOSTIA. ? <? Difficulty was experienced yesterday by members of No. 15 engine company of Anacostia in extinguishing a blaze in the bushes and trees on the south side of the new Anacostia bridge. The fire was of unknown origin, and was discovered by Policeman Coleman R. Brown, who turned in an alarm. The location made it Impossible to use the large hose, but by means of the chemical extinguishers the Maze was subdued. The close prox imity of the fire to several frame houses and a coal yard made it necessary for the firemen to stay until the blaze had entirely disappeared. Members of the Anacostia Citizens' As sociation are considering a local public celebration July 4, as well as assisting in the celebration to be held in Wash ington. It is believed that such a move would do much to incite interest in this national holiday among the younger res idents of the town, as well as furnishing amusement for the entire population. The matter will be presented at the June meeting of the association with a view of having it finally determined upon. Sociability Hun Awards. The trophies in the Four-Leaf Clover soclalbillty run of the Automobile Club of Washington, May 15 to 13, will be awarded next Friday evening at the clubhouse, Georgia avenue and Piney i Branch road, at 8 o'clock. All drivers, ob i sei vers and passengers are welcome. The presentation will be made by Commissioner Cuno H. Rudolph, him self a member of the club. Commis sioners Johnston and Judson will also be present. Paid the Toll. Not many know the story of how Gen. Sheridan's cavalry was held up at the hill tollgate in the little town of Win chester by the old woman in charge. She insisted upon toll money for every soldier before she would let them pass. The officers had money to pay for them selves, but the soldiers did not, and so she sent her bill to the government at Washington. Of course Uncle 8am paid!

OBJECT TO CHANGE Federal Control of Senatorial Elections Advocated. MINORITY REPORT FILED Members of Senate Judiciary Com mittee Present Their Views. ? The people of this country ought not to be compelled to surrender the federal control of the election of United States ! senators In order to get direct election of senators, says a minority repoct from the Senate Judiciary committee filed yesterday afternoon. The report points out that the resolu tion proposing an amendment to the Constitution, passed by the Senate and favored by a majority of the Senate judiciary committee, contains two prop ositions?first. provision for the election of senators by direct vote; and, second, providing that the federal government shall yield up its power to regulate the "times and manner" of election of sena tor to the states. Should Be Considered Separately. "The two proposed amendments ought to be considered separately, and each upon its merits," the minority members of the committee say. "The existing tendency toward the direct election of senators by the people oupht not to be made a vehicle or pretext fo? getting the approval of Congress to an entirely sep arate and distinct proposal to destroy federal control over elections. The people of the country ought not to be compelled to approve, through their legislatures, a change which they may not desire as the price of securing an other change which they may desire. The minority pronounces the proposed amendment as an "unfair and injurious treatment of the subject." The minority report is taken up with the presentation of reasons why the fed eral government should not surrender its control over the election of senators. It Is signed by Senators Clark of Wyo ming, Nelson, Dilllnghan^ Sutherland, Brandegee and Root, as republicans. Surrender Not Necessary. The minority declared that this surren der of federal control Is unnecessary to accomplish the purpose of securing the direct election of senators by the peo ple; that there are no reasons why the} ultimate authority of the national gov ernment over the times and manner of electing senators by direct popular vote shall not continue to be exercised just as it has always been exercised over the di rect election of representatives. "The exercise of that national power over the popular election of representa tives," it is argued, "meets now with no objection and, under the proposed amend ment, is to continue. The proposed change from legislative election of sen ators to popular election of senators fur nishes no reason whatever for destroying the ultimate power of control over the election of senators which the national Congress now has under the Constitu tion." Contention is also made that possession of the power which It Is proposed to strike out is essential to enable the na tional government to act effectively in case It should ever have occasion to en force the provisions of the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments to the Constitution. Federal Regulation Essential. "The basis of any enforcement of those provisions must necessarily be the as certainment and establishment of the facts in respect of the elections to which they may relate," says the report. "The proposed amendment if adopted would bo the latest expression of the sovereign will of the people of the United States, and would take away from the national government authority to make those regulations regarding elections which are essential to the preservation of evidence regarding what actually occurs."

YON'KBRS, N. Y? May 23 ? Rushing wildly among children with whom he had long been a pet, a little monkey bit six persons last Friday. The animal Is be lieved to have been tainted with hydro phobia from the bite of a rabid dog killed In the same neighborhood two weeks ago Two of the monkey's victims have been sent to the Pasteur Institute. New York. Two of them have not been found, al though the local health department is searching for them. Concealed by Parents. It is feared that their identity is being concealed by their parents, who are of foreign birth and do not understand the object of the quest for the little ones. The monkey was gentle and friendly. "When he seemed restless and out of sorts last Friday afternoon Mrs. Subynsky took him up to pet him. He turned on her sav agely, sprang from her arms and sunk his teeth in her cheek. The monkey leaped to a window, raced down the side of the house and made for a group of children. Killed Frenzied Animal. While the youngsters were in a panic of pain and fright Henry Brandt, an at tendant at the City Hospital, jumped from his wagon, drove the monkey from the children and when the animal tried to at tack him the driver klUed him. When Health Officer Coons was In formed he made a personal investigation and caused the Subynsky and Madens children to be sent to the Pasteur Insti tute. Mrs. Subynsky declined to go there and the parents of the Kern boy have not given their consent to his removal. MRS. DOROTHY BECK IN COURT. Summoned in Case of Man Charged With Giving Minors Liquor.
