In accord ance with the ngreemcnt reached Mon. day night, tho House caily this morn ing adopted a resolution providing that tho Speaker appoint a special commit tee of not less than 17 members to which will be rof cried nil bills, Includ ing tho Codo Introduced nt this ses sion. Tho code Is known In the House as House bill No. 5. Ilepiesentatlvo Gucrln, of Erie county, Introduced a bill to meet tho 'original Idea of Royer In bis Supieme Court 1)111. no also Introduced two other bills effecting tho manner of court pleadings and appeals. The whole foienoon was occupied by LAUDED The Navy to the Skies. President Made a Vig orous, Speech. Kind Words Said of Annapolis and West Point. Haverhill, Mass., Aug. 20. Here, at the home of Secretary of the Navy Moody, President Roosevelt made an Important' speech this morning, laud ing the navy and emphasizing that it must be kept up to a .high efficiency in time of peace to bo formidable In time of war. He also said that Annapolis and West Point were the most demo cratic schools in America, where ineilt ulone counted and from whence men went to llnd their careers depended on merit. "The entire countiy is vitally inter ested in the navy," ho said, "because an efficient navy of adequate sizo is not only tho best guaiantee of peace, but is also the surest means for see ing that if war does come the result shall bo honoiablc to our good name and favorablo to our national Interests. "Any leally gieat nation must bo peculiarly sensitive to two things Btaln on tho national honor at homo and disgrace to tho national arms abioad. Our honor nt home, our honor In domestic and internal nfl'nlis is at nil times In our own keeping, and de- ponds simply upon the national pos session of an awakened public In con science. But the only way to make sufo our honor as affected, not by our own deeds, but by the deeds of otheis, Is by readiness In advance. "The enlisted men o" the navy are of flno type, us thoy must be to do their woil; well, whether hi the gun turret or in the cngino 100m and out of tho fine inateiial thus piovlded, tho finished mau of wnr's man Is evolved by years of sea service. '$ "It Is in &) of war to ! impossible after the outbreak Improvise cither the ships or the men of a navy. A war vessel is u bit of mechanism as delicate and com plicated as It Is formidable. You might Justns well expect to turn an unskilled laborer offhand into a skilled machinist or Into tho engineer of a llyer on one pf our big rnUiond systems, as to put men aboard a battleship with tho ex pectatlon that they will do anything but dlsciedlt themselves until thoy lia,vo months and years In which to thoroughly learn the business. Our shipbuilders and guumakers must keep ever on tho alert so that no rivals pass them by; nnd tho offlccrs and en listed men on boord tho ships must in their turn, by the exerclso of un flagging and intelligent zeal,keep them oelvea fit to get tho Invst uso out of the Instruments of war enhusted to their care. Tho Instrument is always im portant, but tho man who hoi it i ' more Important still. Wo must cou- ctnntly endeavor to cerfect our navy In BILL reading the Cod6. The bill was Intro duced In tho Senate by Mr. Longworth. No other business was done In the upper branch. Columbus O., Aug. 20. Tho program for tho codo hearing Is that tho com mittee shall set aside certain days for hearings on certain , sections of tho code. The Cleveland delegation will fight tho provision making the assist ant City Solicitor, Prosecuting attor ney of Pollco court. Thoy want this olllce elective. Senator Hnnna will reach hcie this afternoon to advise w4th Legislators on the code. No two Republicans agtce as to tho course to pursue at the special session and he will be wel comed. all its duties in time of peace nnd above all, in manoeuvring in a sea nay and in marksmanship with the great guns. In battle the only shots that count nre those that hit and mnrksmanship Is a matter of long practice and of Intelligent reasoning. A navy's efficiency In n war depends mainly upon Its preparedness at tho outset of that war. We are not to bo excused as a patlon, if there is not such preparedness of our navy. This Is especially so In view of what we have done duilng the last four years. No nation has a right to undertake a big task, unless It is prepared to do so in masterful and effecth o style. It would be an Intolerable humiliation for us to embark on such, a course of action as' followed from our declaration of war with "Spain and not make good our words by deeds not be ready to prove our tiuth by our endeavor whenever the need calls. Tho good work of building up the navy must go on with out ceasing. The modern warship can. not, with advantage, be allowed to rust lu disuse." LARGE REBATE. Over $1,000 Clipped From N. O. T.'s Share of Expense. The N. O. T. Co. has been allowed a rebate order for $1,022 34, to be charged' to the Matnsst. pacing fund No. 6, for Uiat section of tho street between Thornton and Crosier sts. Tho original estimate of tho expense to be borne by each ' property owner Interested In that part of the street, seems to havo had the cost to the N. O. T. Co. placed too high, and tho action of the City Commissioners Tuesday, was iu adjustment of the situation. DID MUCH FOR CANTON Mrs. Katherjne B. Aultman is Dead. Canton, O., Aug.( 20.

Tho lads, who are Httlo more thou ba bies, wept very bitterly and continu ously while they were In the hands of the pollco, nnd It Js safe to pi edict that It will be a long time before they again break the law. PBICE ONE CENT. said: "Should the postofllce be re moved from New Portage Barberton merchants ns well as the postoffico would be loners, for many persons who. now get their mall nnd buy stamps nt tho New Portage office would go to Akron to get their mall and do their, marketing. Should a sub-station be cs. tnbllshed at New Portage It would not only keep the trade In Barberton but It would swell the receipts of the Bar berton postofllce as all the receipts of the substation would be turned over. to the main office.
