Secretary Meyer Advocates
Economy in Naval Affairs.
J Greater Efficiency Achieved by Sci
entific Management.
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
"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." >

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!

Federal Control of Senatorial
Elections Advocated.
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
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
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."

Neighborhood Pet Believed to
Have Been Bitten by a
Rabid Dog.
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.
Summoned in Case of Man Charged
With Giving Minors Liquor.
Mrs. Dorothy Beck, the sixteen-year-old
widow of Irving Beck, whose testimony at
the trial of her father for killing her hus
band a year or more ago was chiefly re
sponsible for the verdict of acquittal, ap
peared in the Police Court yesterday to
testify against Oliver H. Tyler.
Tyler was charged under the police reg
ulation making it a misdemeanor to fur
nish intoxicants to a minor. The girl
was not required to appear on the wit
ness stand, however, as the defendant
failed to appear for trial and forfeited
$50 collateral.
