When She Ruled Sea.
By KENDRICK SC0FIELD.
Leaning upon the heaving bows of a
fussy tug, the United States frigate
Constellation limped up the Potomac
river in the light of early morning. Xo i
bellying sails booming full of wind
spread above her decks. Her bare poles
lay stark against the sky as she came

craft, the wonder of her kind on the
far-off day of fcer birth, but now jnerely

Thursday, bobbing at the towline of the

Well up the Potomac river earn- Satur

and the tug nestled up under her tow
ering bows to aid her to her anchor
age. The iug warped her up to the &ca
wall of the navy yaid, just after 7
o'clock Saturday morning. Instead of
the old-time "monkey ladder." a mod
ern gangway was rigged from shore to
fchip, ready for visitors who will b
permitted to Inspect the old craft.
I The savor of the open sea, of spum-
swept reaches, where in the teeth or
gales great, sailing ships met in day
long conflict, still hangs about the Con
stellation. But it is by contrast rather
than actuality, for most of the signs of
fighting which .made her famous Jn the
sea history of the United States have
Cannon Still in Place.
Here and there along her heav.
straps there are scars, the mementoes
of century-past battles, and as she
sailed up the Potomac yesterday her

showing her twenty-eight teeth old
In the days of her youth when she
was in her lighting prime, the Constel
lation frigate would have entered port
not as a silent sea-ghost, but as the '
ocean ronunror she was. Her broad
side would have boomed, and when h:
"mud-hooks" splashed home, her yards
would have bristled with bronzed, pig
tailed seamen, redolent of the water
wastes from which she had come, for
"mar-nine th yard" was a proper- fash
ion In the early navj.

dozen fresh-faced boys the suit of

of Chief Bo's'n Arthur Smith.
Her KDacious main deck had been
hob -stoned to Immaculate whiteness.
That tfame main deck, in sea dad

Merrymakers in the Streets
Black ami white grease-paint is put
ting up a stubborn resistance today
on the physiognomies of Washington
bojs and girls who participated as
ghosts and goblins in the celebration
of Halloween last night. Adults, too,
in many instances, spent the carl
hours of the day adjusting faces which
were in disguise last nignt, ana inci
dentally adjusting many other things
which the exuberant youth of tho com
munity displaced during the celebra
tion in prank and frolic.
Kvcry where about the city the spirit
of Halloween permeated. In the Wil
lard, Shoreham. Raleigh. Powhatan,
and other hotels, the ardin le Danse,
Harvey's, the theaters, and other pub
lic places the holiday spirit prevailed.
Lodges cave nartles and dances. There
were parties at which congregations of
churches made up tne merrymaKecs,
while in hundreds of private homes tne
children and adults of tho neighbor
hood gathered to celebrate.

to Attorney General Gregory with the
result that the dismissals "for the good
of the service" were ordered.

of the Senate or House, who will guar- I

hands of one of tho foreign powers.
In making this order It was necessary
to suspend th former order providing
that purchasers of Krags should give
the Government a, bond to gtiarantee
that rifles purchased should be trans
ported "beyond the seas."
This order was made to prevent the
rifles from falling into the hands of
Mexican belligerents. The Mexican or

these guns for shipment to Europe,
with the violation of neutrality that act
would oause, which prompted tho new
order requiring guarantees from mem
bers of Congress.
