Present Cipher System is Good Enough. Lot of New Ones Sent to Depart mentAll Easily Bead Key Word System. WASHINGTON. Through some means the impression has got abroad that the Navy Department is anxious to purchase a cipher code that will defy deciphering except by those in possession of the key. As a result the department has received many secret codes from people who evidently be lieve that they 'have invented systems that cannot be translated by anybody not acquainted with the process. The cipher experts of the department have succeeded in deciphering all of these codes except a few, and it is said that these are imperfect or that the speci mens submitted are so poorly written that the characters cannot be read. People who do not know how to spell or to construct an English sentence grammatically have sent in crypto grams. Others have submitted codes that have been public property for years. The Navy Department does not want any secret ciphers. Its own, con sisting of about a hundred thousand symbols, worked perfectly in the Spanish-American war, but the department officials are constantly at work endeav oring to perfect it. The "War Depart ment's system is said not to be so per fect as that of the Navy Department, but it served its purpose in the war. The method of deciphering ciphers submitted to the naval and military brandies of the executive Government is very simple and has worked in most cases. The letter occurring most fre quently is presumed to be "e." and by following out the rule of proportion among letters occurring in English words, the specimen submitted is usu ally translated correctly. Nearly all the ciphers sent to the War and Navy departments have been based merely on the transposition of alphabetical symbols. In the Navy Department code the symbols take their meanings from the key word, so that a symbol may mean one thing in one dispatch and have quite a different meaning in another. HAPPY WEDDING. II. V. Flint of the Bennington and Nina Gardiner. The home of Mrs. A. W. McLean, Alakea street, was the scene of a pretty wedding last evening, when Rev. H. H. Parker made II. W. Flint of the U. S. S. Bennington, and Nina Gardi ner, man and wife. The house and grounds were tastefully decorated with American, English, Hawaiian, in fact, flags of all nations. The wedding bower was beneath a picture of the Bennington. Miss Amy Roe as bridesmaid and Mr. Wm. MacKay of the Bennington as best man, did their part in the regulation style. A quartette from the Bennington furnished until a late hour, music for dancing which was kept up with a will by the numerous friends of the contracting party. Light refresh ments were served at intervals dur ing the evening. A number of handsome presents were displayed, among which, prized very highly, was a fine gold ring set with garnets, a present to the groom from the ship's company. Mr. Flint, who is chief boatswain's mate of the Bennington is one of the most popular men in Uncle Sam's Navy and has made many friends in the city during his short stay. The bride has been a resident in the Isl ands for a number of years and is also popular and well liked by her numer ous friends. Mr. Flint expects to leave on Saturday with his vessel, and will carry the best wishes of his new found friends. Thomas Square Concert.
