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.
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
Thomas Square Concert.
