The adjutant general goes to San
Diego, today, by the afternoon train,
and will inspect all the sites offered,
after which the successful bidders will
be decided upon.
H. C. Corbin, assistant adjutant-gen
eral of the department of Arizona, in an
interview with a Herald reporter yes
terday, in speaking of the proposed
military post at San Diego, said that the
Deople of Los Angeles were very short
sighted in their policy of disparaging
the project. Southern California is all
one country; the presence of 1000 or
more men, who are non producers at
San Diego, could not fail to affect the
entire section, Los Angeles included.
Many of these men will draw large
salaries, all of them will draw salaries
of some size, and this money will re
main in the country, as well as the
money which will be spent for food and
supplies for these men. This is
an item that should not be
forgotten. Another fact is,
that a post at San Diego will provide the
people of Southern California with an
argument for the establishment of a post
at San Pedro and every other Southern
California port, an argument which the
recent affair of the Itata will not be
likely to weaken.
In speaking of the Itata, Colonel Cor
bin said that the insurgent steamer
would not have dared to enter San Diego
if there had been a battery with a single
gun defending that harbor. The Itata
came in there simply because it was un
defended, and afforded facilities for es
cape in case of complications.
In conclusion Colonel Corbin stated
that military posts were useful as pre
ventitive measures, more than for what
they accomplished. As such the people
of the United States should rather en
courage than discourage their establish

Still at the Head of the Navy, Although
Over One Hundred Years Old.
Sir Provo William Parry Wallis, senior
admiral of the fleet and popularly known
as the "'father of the British navy," was
100 years old recently. His career has
been an uncommonly brilliant one. He
is a Canadian by birth, being born at
Halifax in 1791. He began his naval ex
perience in 1801, when he was appointed
midshipman on the Cleopatra, and had
his first taste of action six months later,
when the Cleopatra succumbed to the
superior power of the French frigate
Ville de Milan. The Cleopatra was res
cued after hauling down the British flag,,
and the French frigate became the prize of.
the Leander, a fifty-gun ship, without a
shot being fired.
Wallis was made a lieutenant in 1808,
when he was but seventeen years old, and.
took part in the capture of Guadeloupe,
Four years later he was appointed to the
frigate Shannon, under Captain moke,
and he is the only survivor of the great
naval duel which took place off Boston
harbor on the Ist of June, 1813, between
that vessel and the American frigate Chesa
peake. This encounter was one of themosfc
famous sea fights the world ever witnessed*
and though between single ships, ranks,
second only to Trafalgar in British naval
annals. For his share in the battle yountf
Wallis received a letter of approbation
from the admiralty and a sword from, his
captain. His promotion was very rapid
afterward. In 1845 he was senior officer
during the Syrian war; in 1851 he obtained
full flag rank, aud in 1857 he was appoint
ed commander-in-chief on the southeast
coast of America. His promotion to vice
admiral followed in 1858, since which time
he has not been to sea, but was. placed upon
the active list for life in recognition of his
long and creditable service.
Sir Provo is in feeble health, but his
mind is vigorous and his memory clear.
The one hundredth anniversary of his
birth was celebrated with fitting honors at
every British naval station.
