Lieutenant llobson is reported saying: "I wish people would .pill fol lowing around after * ine and would leave me alone. It is highly embar? rassing and I am getting heartily tiled of it. I would rather lace the enemy than meet my friends nowadays.'' The rei.Iv is entirely In I .in in ennui Hudson's hands. He lias coin led Hie embarrassment he claims is annoying by presenting himself al points where idle .pie mos! do congregate. Like ihe vain eiiuaslrlan. he provokes the c:.r he seems to chide. Lietilenanl llobson has ollicial work lo do. Ii comprehends the raising and reconstruction of certain of lie- Span? ish ships disabled by Snhley. Should he be engaged in thai work, as is his duty, la- will lind nobody seeking lo dlvefl him. The fair, starving Cuban thai mav wander alone upon the southern eoasl where ihe Colon lies will not so? licit him for a kiss, lb- has no sensa? tional duly lo perform, bin oi.I' high usefulness. Ii will make a ilrnfl noi upon bis bravery, bin upon his skill, and Ihe sooner he leaves north AH.au oom'puny of embarrassing belles Ihe sooner he will be engaged self-prob.-ei ingly.? i Ihioiigo ? Ihronlele. ?ur Windy City contemporary not only attributes to Lieutenant llobson unworthy designs of which he is entire? ly innocent, bin does him the further injustii.f impugning the object of his slay in this country. Holison was Seht to lie- United States on business by Iiis superior officer. He has transacted thai business and will return lo Admiral Sampson's Heel whenever In- is ordered to do so. It is true iha: tin- young na? val hero presided a! a public function in New York, and thereby attracted lie plaudits of his countrymen, bin he did so a: the earnest request of officers ot the Navy Department, and against hi: own inclinations, in order to aid ; worthy cause. Everyone who is ac quainted with llobson knows thai he i. modest and unassuming, and that . desire for notoriety is foreign to his na ture. Like all men pushed In to sudden prominence. however he has been made the vlethi of scores of incidents that neve occurred. The kissing story is probabl. based on one of these. Hut what ii li is guilty of the s,,ft impeti Climen I Any man would have done the sain thing, if other pretty girls warn to kir liiin he is a fool if he does not grain' 'heir oscillatory ambitions. Let Holism, alone. He is entitled i all the honor accorded him. One of tie- baneful effects or tin wa will be the "commissions" thai are lo 1 seal out from Washington. We al ready have a Hawaiian commission, peace commission is soon lo be i.i nounced and then will follow a Cuba commission, a Porto Rlcan commissi.: commission and ..lb. rs too numerous i mention. The average "commission is a political creation designed piinc pally to provide Jobs for more or let worthy statesmen of the predominai party. Ii does nothing and takes long lime to do ii. There is some co, solution, however, in the fact that b ???ins now that Hi" war will erid Weyhes army gets t.i Washing Ariisi - "II..W Iii;.' Hi.- ii..so." Inn it's yours."
