Itear Admiral ic? >t? t* > D. Kvuus. Com
liiuiider-iii-Chlcl ol Ilm Atlantic fleet,
made reply lo a recciil puhllcatloii
jwhioh conveyed an iuiidled criticism
of Hie efficiency of Ids command by
declaring thai the country's peace <d
mind required some official staleuienl
that a "definite scheine of hitttlu tac?
tics" has been developed. When Hear
Admiral Kvans' attention was called
to tills matter he said:
"Tile critics of foreign naval powers
already are faiulliar witli the details
of our naval construction. If we
should permit ourselves lo be drawn
Into controversy over Hie details ol
our tactical development they would
BOOII he likewhe familiar with Hint..
Hoi since the criticism Implies thai
the Atlantic fleet Is being neglected
by some one. I will say thai I nun Hie
Coiiimuiidur-ln t.'hiei down to Hie un?
listed men an effort has been und is
lieing fluide to keep the ships of |lie
Atlantic Heel up to (he highest stall
dard of eliiclono} and ready at any
moment to defend Hie country. Any
effort to give to the country any oth?
er Impression Is unjust, Injurious and
uncalled for.
"The gentlemen who appear to
.'have misgivings on this seme ma)
?.deep in perfect peace. Itattlo plans
have been worked out hi detail. Not
only the division coniiniinilers of the
fleet, but the captains of Ihe ships are
prepared to go to sea and drill with
tiny foreign Heel either in peace evo?
lutions or war evolutions. My own
standard In such matters is rather
high, and I read with the utmost ill
tendon and care the reports of the
nianoeiivres and drills of all the na?
vies of lhe world. As fur as 1 am
...able to Judge the work done by the
American fleet, all things considered,
compares favorably with that of any
ether fleet under mix oilier Hag. Hav?
ing made this statement, | decline lo
ho drawn Into any controversy tend
Ing to disclose the details of our
plans.''
Answers "The Navy" Criticism.
Hear Admiral ICvans also consent?
ed lo speak regarding the sweeping
criticisms recently made by "The
Navy" of the structural defects of
eei min American battle ships. The
itear Admiral's objection to these crit?
icisms rested not against the recita?
tion of certain faults which have been
known ami deplored in Ihe service for
yi lirs. but against the Inferenoo that
lliis proves (hat American ships as a
class are Inefficient anil that naval
officers have onl> recently discover?
ed It by conpurlson with oilier navies.
"Is tho proportion of battle ships
.\\ith known structural defects greater
In the American navy than in other
navies?" IUnr Admiral ICvans was
aslted.
"An answer to Dial qtiostlon," he
replied "can be found in the state?
ment made in the British Parliament
recently In behalf of the Admiralty.
The question of maintenance of tho
British fleet upon the theory that :t
should I." equal to the combined pow?
er of nny two navies was under con?
sideration. II w.is frankly declared
lor the Admiralty thai only thirty six
buttle ships out ot a total of about
seventy wive considered able to go
Into the Hue of battle. The remain?
der are to be stricken from tile navy
list, sold, used as receiving ships or
placed in reserve.
"The proportion of obsolete battle
ships in our navy is nothing like that.
A greater percentage of nur ships than
ot the llrltlsh may he considered
ready for the line of battle. The same
holds good in comparison of oar ships
With naval Powers other than Croat
Britain. The inference from Ibis is
tiiu fewer mistakes have been made
on our naval constructors than by
those of other navies.

ho represented to the Navy Depart?

question of selecting the host.
"There is Ulis tu lie su!'!. however.
In notion the Kcnrsargo and Kentucky
would have to depend upon their tur?

guns In brond side, which In tile same

Oo Water Line Belt.
When his opinion was asked re?
garding criticisms of the low position
of the water Hue armor holt on the
newly designed linttlu BlllpS of the
Delaware class Rear Admiral Evans
said:
-It has been my endeavor to bring
the witter lino armor belt up by l id?
ding the ships of unnecessary weights,
A , report Will soon be made on this
subject, hut do not believe that the
difference accomplished by this meth?
od will he equal or more than that
due lo the use of olio day's COOl sup?
ply lit full BtOlimlng, I believe the
watorllne armor belt Is a mistake in
a ship unless it is so placed us lo
give mlhlmitm protection possibly by
waterllnc armor when the Heel goes
'Into notion, This is not Impossible
when tin- watorllno armor belt is sub?
merged, or nearly so.
"In the ruse of the Delaware class,
believe the Ill-Inch armor nhove the
watorllno armor belt, reinforced as, I
understand II will be by (he protective
deck will give a measure of protection
lacking in most of our ships now. Ex?
periment seems to show that the pro?
tect ion afforded by the water Itself
is such Hint no armor protection is
required beyond six feet Lolow the
watorllne. My views on the question
of armor protection are fairly well
known in Hie service. I am an enemy
of "soft end' ships. It Is my opinion
that a ship should be protected all
over and for (his reason would thin
tho armor licit which Is now sub
'merged and protect with armor of

ships which tire now unprotected."

APPEARANCES
Mrs Hol ton entered her .sister Su-t
sun's room, ami, Kitting into the near
out chair, .lid hor collar, This was
preparatory t<> the rite, sacred in
Mllllown, of drosslng for tho after?
noon . Susan, who, notwithstanding
th? fact Dial she hail jusl returned
front an art school aji i did not deny
helm-, urllstle, refused t<? bo called
Suzanne, was dolllg something to her
face with the uId of n huudglns? and
many unbecoming grimaces.
"What are you going to wenr this
nftornoonY' Inquired Mrs. liolton in
an elaborately careless voice.
"Nothing?Hint Is, I'm golnj; to
wnsh my hair, since there Is not u
place in mis metropolis where I can
have It washed for me."
"Hut. Susie! Not !n the afternoon!
There will surely |,o callers."
".IllSt say I'm not at home anil ihm'l
hulher," saht Susan, drnwlllg out her
hairpins ami leitlllg her red hair
down ovi r her yellow and brown und
tan kimono.
"Yon forgot that you me not in New
York," suhl her sister sharply. "Ho
try to forgot thai you have been te
ait school and be descent lo people.
'Not nt home' won't go here. BvOry
one in this village knows that you
lire nt home, for you couldn't possi?
bly get away without souiooilu scene
you go. And, anyway, 1 asked that
Mr. Hates over to call on you."
"Kind of you! What Mr. Rates?"
asked Susan, dropping her comb and
stooping to pick It up.
"Mis. Marten's nephew. lie's from
tho linsi Homowhere, ami lie has tho
nicest mnnuers, I thought maybe
you'd like to have someone come who
Is a lit lie more like Hie men you uro
used lo," She added.
"I would!" said Susan emphatically.
"Anil it was nice of you to Ih'nk of
it. Perhaps he'll come bile in the
ultei noon and my hair will he all
dry, I'll hurry!" And she ran down
the hall and slammed the Luthroom
door after her.
"Thon 's something familiar nbq.nl
the lihmo,'1 she said lo her face In the
glass while the water was running.
"And?and I don't particularly want
to see any more of the Males elan
hut if DOSSlO should find out. she'd
never let me forget lit. So I'll see
her Mr. Mates ami try to get Interest?
ed in tills place."
She played croquet with her little
niece while her hair dried, and the
latter half of the gnmo brought her
into lull view or the street. She gOI
down on her knees ami bumped tho
gaudy bull wiih care ami precision
against the little post, and while she
knelt a young man walked up Hie
sira'e.hl walk to Hie fr?ii( door.
And so it happened Unit three min?
utes later as she entered the sitting
room, with her glowing, wind-blown
linlr ami flushed face, she was just
in time to hear hor sister's "company
voice'' suy:
"Come rlghl out Into the siHiiiu
room, Mr. Mutes; it's so much color
there."
She gn.'noil the stair chisel just In
lime, und softly pulled the door shut
after her. And then, safely hidden,
silo called herself a goose.
"Why didn't you go back out Into
the yard and reach your room by Hie
ladder? No one but Bessie Would
live In a bouse Hint has no back
stairs."
She hoped Hie caller would mit slay
long, hui she knew there was no tell?
ing what false hopes her sister would
bold out to tin- young man to kobp
him milII Susan should appear. She
did ot know Hint Bosun was 'n the
closet, und If she had known it she
would m>t have known how to get her
out or it.
I "But if she had one grain of sense,
which nnfortunntcly she has not. or
she'd not he trying to make n match
for me, she'd know t-hhi i presuma?
bly in the back yard, could not gel
to my room In any way save through
the place where they are sitting."
The. closet was Small, airless, dusty
und full id odds und cuds. Susan
hardly dared move Tor fear of knock?
ing something down.
"Not that i care for being discov?
ered." she reasoned, "for that would
serve them both right, I Ml i do nol
care to bring Jim's golf slicks or In?
dian clubs down on niy dofonsclcss
head. I'm not much of n olubwom
an." She searched cautiously for a
keyhole and found none.
"Of course not." she muttered dis?
gustedly. "I am denied even the
small com for I of watching the dismay
on Bessie's face as 1 fall to appear.
So I must think upon my sins and
be patient. I presume."
She sank back on her heels and
mopped Itjjr hot face with one cornor
of her klptono. "I hope it doesn't
fade" she thought.
Presently she rested her forehead
on hor knees nnd forgot time and
place, nnd heat ami discomfort. Hor
thoughts were busy.
"I suppose he nnd Maude Formnn
are marred by ibis time. I wisli I
knew how thai happened. He always
said In- did not cafe for her haby kind
of prcttincss. Ii must have been her
talent. No one can deny Hint she
bad the rest of us beaten all hollow.
That little characterless, baby-faced
thing could paint better than Dan
himself.''
"Maude knows how I feel about It?
and so does In-. That's what hurts
Hie worst, l could not help showing
it thai last day. And slu ? there was
such triumph in her silly little face
when she came out of the studio, and
wo knew she had got the prize. She
iooked nt me and then she walked
straight up to Han. and they forgot
1 was there. Oh, the humiliation of
Ii! Ami then old Cation bad to cap

enough. All l wanted was?if he'd
only slopped there instead of telling
me thai 1 should In- married.
"T have seen "that you arc in love.

her In'ad against a pile <>f ompty box?
en wlilrb with a deafening clatter.
Thon tli?1 door was flung open anil
someone xolr.cd hor aim ami draw
her gently nut Into Iho sitting room.
Susan gave otic glance at her sister's
horrified face, ami then laughed help
lessii. it 'was fortunate thai she
COlild hol sec her own lace, which
was stained In an elaborate pattern
from ihe kimono.
"I wns hunting for my comb"
she began anil stoppen, for the man,
whose face she bail not yd seen,
came around In from of her.
"Dhl you finil II'.'" ho asked.
Susan turned white ami (ben red,
and while again before she said a
word. And when her lips finally op?
ened Ihey uttered one thing Bile could
have b'.ttcr her tongue out for say?
ing.
"Where is Maude?"
"Maude?" Oh', she's safely married
and on a wedding trip. Whatever
made you run away that day when
old CartOIl told Maude she bad won
(ho prlzof We hunted tor you to tell
you, bin you were gone."
"I llldll't need to he told. I saw."
she said, and then grew white again.
"liV why?If yon me married?why
Isn't MHildo here, too?"
"Maude'.''' Suddenly Ihe man gave a
shout. "IKt you mean that you think
I am married lo Maude? That's a
good one. She Is my sister-ii law
now. she was engaged to Krcd for
five years, and Ihey never had money
enough io marry on till she got thai
cash prize. That was why she work?
ed so hard lo get It."
Susan began to back toward the
stairway. She felt ii was time lo es
capo.
"No you don't" said Ihe man. and
he caught one col lief of the kllllOUO
and hold her.
"I'm not dressed," sh? murmured.
"So I perceive," he answered.
"Hut was that the reason yon ran
away?because you thought Maude"
'Old Carton (old ate I'd never make
an artist!" she evaded.
"Did be? The brute! Hut that was
no reasou for running away from me.
What else did he say?"
"He said I bad heiler gel mnrr.'ed,"
said Susan, "And that was why I ran
away."
As she had hoped he would, Iho
man dropped (he kimono in bis
nmar.oinoiil and she darted up the
stairs, leaving him hiking nftl r her
with fear in Iiis eyes.
"Susan?tell me"
She leaned over the banisters am!
smllci^'at him. "Ilul. of course, I
can't get married untikjginoiino asks
me," she Bn.'d, and IcfSvo he could
get lo her the door of her rom bad
slummed.
