The United States Naval Reserve. District of Columbia Battalion, has been directed to vacate the armory at Water and O streets southwest, which they have occupied since the demobilization of the reserve from the Regular Service subsequent to the World War. Maj. Gen. Anton Stephan, commanding the District of Columbia Militia, has made a demand for the armory, asserting that it is needed for the artillery unit of the National Guard. Quarters have been provided for the reserves in the Red Build ing. within the limits of the Wash ington navy yard, at the corner of 11th and M streets southeast, where drills and schools will be held every Monday night as usual. However, the U. S. S. Eagle, No. 56. training ship of the reserves, will remain at the dock at Water and O streets southwest, and the enrollment office, which occupies quarters In the ar mory, will be removed into frame shacks on the dock, built during the war. The Naval Reserve Armory was built expressly for the Naval Militia, when that force, before the war, was a part of the National Guard. It is fitted expressly for naval training. However, during the war, the Naval Militia, a state force, was abolished, and has been supplanted by a force now directly under the Navy Depart ment. Although the Naval Reserve has been using the armory for sev eral years, and the Navy Department has spent thousands of dollars in im provements, including the installa tion of a fire main and draining sys tem, installing of a new lighting sys tem, and rebuilt the dock, the latter at a cost of approximately 15,000. they are compelled now to give it up on the demand of the local guard officials. » There is not docking room for the Eagle at the Navy Yard, and the transfer of the drilling place south west to the Navy Yard divides the men and their equipment.

Prince of Kurdestan. ruler of a principality, alleged pants presser, book agent and confidence man. Whatever he is, the Department of Labor cares not, for yesterday Robe Carl White, Assistant Secretary - of Labor, ruled that Seid Zerdecheno, who graced the District jail for three weeks, must make a hurried departure from the United States via the deportation route. Zerdecheno, who posed here as the Emir of Kurdestan, and declared he was the ruler of that principality in Asia Minor and the owner of thousands of camels, must go the way of Emma Goldman and others. He will be sent back to Turkey, under whose protect ing wing he claims Kurdestan is ruled. Reviewing the Zerdecheno case, which has now been before .the depart ment for two months, Mr. White ■yesterday declared the State Depart ment had informed him there was no such government as that of Kurdestan. and that therefore Zerdecheno’s claims to be the ruler of the state were erroneous. The prince Is somewhere in the eastern United States, and will appear soon before the immigration authorities at Ellis Island for deporta tion, the same port where on July 9 he landed brusquely from a steamer, waving his passports in the faces of immigration authorities and claiming diplomatic immunity. Examiners for the Labor Department couldn’t find any evidence that he ■was entitled to diplomatic immunity, and, as he was not in possession of an unexpired immi gration visa at the time of his arrest, ordered his deportation.
