UMPIRED PIE-EATING MATCH
But Midshipman koesih Not To Be
Dismissed
The promoter of a pie-eating con
test is not necessarily a hazer, and
accordingly Midshipman Herbert O.
Koesch, of Oregon, will not be dis
missed from the Naval Academy.
( apt. John M. Bowyer, superin
tendent of the Academy, in a report
to the Navy Department, said
Koesch was guilty of hazing and
should be court-martialed. Captain
Bowyer made his recommendation
on the findings of a board of in
quiry, which spent some time look
ing into the now-famous pastry
consuming match. " ~.~Z
Koesch said he didn’t mean to haze
anybody, and Acting Secretary of the
Navy Winthrop. who is a New Eng
lander and quite fond of pie himself,
says such a contest was not hazing.
Accordingly, for the first time since
Captain Bowyer has been superinten
dent of the Naval Academy, his rec
ommendation has been disapproved
by the department.
It was good pie which was served
to the midshipmen that night, and
Koesch suggested that they engage in
a contest to determine which could
finish his pie first. Because Koesch
was the senior midshipman present,
and accordingly at the head of the
table, the authorities, when they
learned of the matter, decided it was
hazing.
As far as the testimony shows, all
the boys enjoyed their pie and never
thought of being hazed and Roesch
also made the point that according to
the traditions of the Academy a first
classman never hazes freshmen, the
contestants having been first class
men. lioesch’s diploma had been
withheld but he will now get it.

TOO MUCH MAL DH MER
Naval Graduate Has To Resign On
Account Of Sea Sickness
Acting Sec re tray of the Navy V in
throp has accepted the resignation of
Midshipmen Julius Hatcher, of Virgin
ia. attached to the battleship Delaware.
Hatcher was compelled to give up
the navy because of seasickness. He
was graduated from the Naval Acad
emy in 1905 and was at sea before be
ing ordered to the Delaware a few
i months ago. While at the academy ho
took the summer practice cruise twice.
, and after each cruise he was inclined
to resign, but friends urged him to re
main. hoping that he might overcome
his susceptibility to the malady. As
his present cruise showed no improve
ment he has been allowed to quit the
service.
Hatcher was nominated for appoint
ment by Representative James Hay, of
the Seventh Virignia district.

Boil Your Drinking Water
This is the season of the year whet:
typhoid germs are lurking around, and.
we advise the boiling of all drinkin:
water both in town and county, as a
preventive from that soucre. It would
be wise if all the dairymen made fre
quent analysis of their milk, and aid
housekeepers to keep their houses as
free of the dangreous house-riy as pos
sible. To our minds it is the house-tty
that is more to be feared than anything
else in the spread of disease, and w e
advise everybody to be careful as pos
sible in these extremely warm days.
Lest You Forget
Don’t forget the lawn fete of next

enjoyable time with one and all.
The fete will be held on the W., B.

BACKWARD, BUI BRAVE
Midshipman Thomas* Courage
g May Win Him Promotion
- Fail to to pass with class
i. Averted Probable Destruction Of Ponder
1 V, ssel- Commended And Likelv To
Be Made Ensign
Midshipman Raymond G. Thomas,
U. S. N., is not rated very high in
navigation, and so he is a year be
. hind his class, which reached the
ensign’s grade a year ago last June.
But what he lacks in knowledge con
cerning how to drive a man-o’-war
through the seas he has made up in
courage, and so he will probably he
given his promotion.
Midshipman Thomas is the hero of
the powder fire accident to the supply
ship Culgoa and a lighter alongside
at the New York navy yard on July
20. when a can of powder exploded
and theatened the ship's cargo. Risk
ing his life, Midshipman Thomas
fought back the fire and rescued one
powder chest while the wooden strips
upon it were ablaze. His hands were j
badly burned.
Thomas is held to have saved the j
ship from destruction,and Act lg Sec
retary of ihe Navy Winthrop issued
to him yesterday a letter of strong
commendation. Mr. Winthi p too!;
under consideration the reco- menda
tion that Thomas should be g: .en his
promotion.
The letter was issued on the recom- j
mendation of Commander Harry
Phelps, of the Culgoa. which war
strongly indorsed by Rear Admiral
Seaton Schroeder,commander-in-chi t'
of the Atlantic fleet. Commander
Phelps, in bis letter detailing the
heroism of the midshipman, gives the :
first details as to the cause, nature
and extent of the accident to be made '
public from official reports. Comman- '
der Phelps in bis letter says: 1
j “In the upper between-deck of No. 2
j hold were 2,100 tanks of 8-inch S. (
P. charges, which were being trans- \
ferred to a lighter alongside. After '
about 200 charges had been passed 1
out one charge ignited and set fire to 1
the lighte and other charges, causing
a fierce flame. At the first alarm the
men working at the powder on this
ship left the compartment, which
besides the remaining powder, con- j
tained 1,000 gallons of gasoline.
"Realizing the need of closing the
cargo port door. Midshipman Thomas
entered the compartment to do so ‘
and found a tank of powder lying just ]
inside the cargo port, which was just j
i alongide the burning powder on the ‘
lighter, and already the wooden | ‘
strips on it were smoking. This tank '
he seized and removed to a place of '
safety and, being unable to close the
heavy door because of the intense ;
heat, returned on deck and assisted in ‘
extinguishing the fire. After opening J
the tank for examination the muslin '
bag was found to be slightly charred, j
and 1 feel sure that it would soon
have ignted and caused a fire in the
hold compartment which might have
had very serious results”
While the policy of the Navy De
partment is to freely commend en
listed men who have performed ser
vces of unusual bravery, it holds that
officers should not expect anything of ,
this sort, and accordingly praise
is rarely granted. Midshipman Thomas
is the first member of his £class to
gain such recognition. He graduated I
with the class of 1908. He is said to 1
be engaged to a daughter of Ex-
Mayor Timanus, of Baltimore.

MR. OWENS IN THE RACE
Annapolis Lawyer Alter Fifth District
Nomination
Mr. James W. Owens, of Annapolis,
counsel to the Anne Arundel County
Comrnissoners, yesterday made formal
announcement that he is in the race
for the Democratic nomination for
Congress from the Fifth district,
Among the items set out in his
platform, in which he calls on the
voters of the district for support at
the forthcoming primaries, are
. these:
A protective tariff on luxuries,
which only the rich are able to buy;
of reentry of all raw materials; ex
port duty on all goods manufactured
in this country which are sold in for
eign countries at a lower price than
here, the amount of duty to equal the
difference in price; a Government
drydock at Drum Point, which will
finally result in the construction of a
railroad to that point; dredging or
jettying of the inland waterways, es
pecially in the Patuxent and Severn
rivers, and the enactment of a law
prohibiting the enlistment of negro
soldiers. Baltimore Sun.
Mr. James W. Owens has made the
announcement that he will become a
candidate for Congress this fall.
Who in all this congressional district
would be more energetic in looking
after the interests of his constituents
than Mr. Owens? Who would be
more industrious than Mr. Owens, if
a member of Congress, in fighting for
an appropriation to build the long-de- '
sired boulevard connecting the Na- i
tional Cemetery with the Naval Acad
emy property, via West Annapolis?
There are many and large improve
ments to be made in our splendid
Naval Academy requiring large and
continuing appropriations; who, in
all the district, would come nearer
securing these appropriations than |
Mr. Owens, who understands the con- !
ditions here better than any other
candidate in the field? There is only
one answer to these questions and
that is an answer favorable to Mr.
Owens. If favorable, then why not
Anne Arundel county, and particular
ly the city of Annapolis, give Mr.
Owens a solid endorsement for the
nomination?
A DIRTY TRICK
Two Children Of (iood Parentage Are
Seen To Spit In Ice Water Barrel
One expects dirty tricks from
children of low parentage, children
who do not receive proper training j
and who raise themselves rather than
are brought up like Christians, but
one does not expect “low down” ;
dirty tricks from children of good i
parentage.
That the latter are not always re
fined, or even decently behaved was
demonstrated last evening publicly
at the corner of Prince George street
and College avenue, where one of the
public ice water barrels is located.
Two children, one the son of a naval
officer, the other the child of a prom- *
inent business man, whose social !
standing is above question, deliber- '
ately raised the lid of the barrel and
each child spit into the contents. It ;
was not only a loathsome thing to do, j
but it was witnessed by a party of !
strangers who stood aghast in amaze
ment that well dressed, good look
ing children who, from appearance,
came from the best homes, would j
dare do a thing like that.
Mrs. Walter Clark who was driving
by at the time and saw the children
do this trick, stopped her carriage
and shamed them, telling them she
would report it to the Mayor. The
children’s names are known, but are
withheld because of their parents’
standing in the community. No pun- I
ishment administered to youngsters
who did a trick like this can be too
severe.
No one is safe to drink from barrels
that are spit into, and the ice water
furnished free has been a God-send
these fearful hot days to hundreds
of thirsty people.

An Expert Fisherman
Amos Wallace, colored, represents
three generations of experts in the
well-digging business On Tuesday
last Mr. Harry J. Medford, of Rull
manville, on the Spa Road, lost the
last of his two buckets in a 60-foot
well. Amos was on hand and made
a set of fishing tackle out of a clothes
line, a piece of wire and a part of a
broken buggy spring as a sinker.
Fastening the sinker parallel with
and on to the line. Amos let down his
hook, and in three minutes had one
bucket safely on land. The second
, was a problem. It lay on its end, up
side down. After a quarter of an
hour of angling, Amos caught a grip
on the bottom of the bucket as slight
as a touch of the tip of a finger.
As he drew on his capture, it fell
sideways against the line, and, poised
so evenly on its centre that a breath
would have upset it, Amos slowly
and cautiously pulled the second
bucket out of the well. Smiles
wreathed the brow of the owner of
the buckets.and water was restored
to the delighted household.

TROUBLE FOR MILITIA TARS
: ; Natal Reserves Of Washinßion Deserted
From The Monitor Ozark
Several sailors of the naval reserve
of the District of Columbia will be
court-martialed for deserting the
mointor Ozark in this city, where the
vessel slopped on the annual practice
cruise. The names of the men who
will be tried will not be known until
the Ozark returns to Washington.
The Ozark sailed about a week ago
for Gardiner’s Bay to join the other
vessels of the cruising squadron.
When she started out of Hampton-
Roads a slight accident occurred to
her machinery and her commanding
officer decided to remain in the Ches
apeake.
Sunday when she touehed at Annap
' olis a number of her crew jumped the
ship and returned to their homes in
Washington. They said there was an
insufficient supply of drinking water
on board and also that the food was
unfit to eat. Th“ deserters, if con
victed by court-martial, are liable to
dishonorable discharge and forfeiture
of pay and allowances and three years
confinement in the District jail al
hard labor.
In case three or more men conspired
to cause desertion among the crew
the confinement period in their cases
is extended to five years. If found
guilty merely of absence without
leave they may bo punished by a $lO
fine and ten days imprisonment. The
j Ozark was formerly the Arkansas and
>is commanded I>y Capt. Samuel C.

• ON NEW YORK RARER
Prof. Rnval J. Da\is Of St. John’s Will
Now Write Fdilorials
Having resigned from the faculty
j of St. John’s College, Prof. Royal J.
Davis will next month assume the
duties on the editorial department of
the New York Evening Post.
Professor Davis has been at St.
John’s for four years, and has held
tne chair of the Department of Eng
lish,which he has filled most capably.
The students have made marked im
provement under the instruction and
tutelage of Professor Davis.
In his new position he will write
editorials for the Post and also for
the Nation. He will review the mag
azines and some hooks for the Post
and has been invited to give a course j
in Editoral writing the coming win- j
ter at the New York University,
whch he will probably accept.
The Post gives Professor Davis more
than twice the salary he received
at St. John’s College. He has recent
ly been entertained a great deal hy
the Century Club, the great literary
club of New York, and the Howard
Club, both of which he will probably
join.
The appointment on the Post stall
of Professor Davis is a deserved recog
nition of his ability. He has the pen
of a ready writer, and his writings
are beautifully embellished although
terse and often epigrammatic. He
i uses the choicest Engish and his man
i nerism is most attractive.
1 Both Professor and Mrs. Davis have

’that steamer communication lot
S both passenger and freight service
between Annapolis anil Eastern
Shore points, and shorter tune be
tween the far side of the bay, and
Baltimore and Washington as well
as Annapolis is now assured, wa>
settled today, when Mayor Strange,
of Annapolis, was in consultation
with representatves of the new line
that will work in conjunction with
the Washington, Baltimore and
Annapolis Electric Railway.
The representatives of the coinpaiw
assured Mayor Strange that they
were now conducting negotiations
with the railway company perfecting
their tradic and transfer agreement,
and the intimfttion was thrown out
that the Baltimore and Ohio Express
lines would throw much parcel and
freight business in the way of the
new line.
Bending final action by the Annapo
lis City Council on Monday night and
dialling of the necessary ordinance
granting the Electric Bine the right
to haul freight through Annapolis at
certain hours. Mayor Strange ha-,
granted the new steamboat line the
right to land its passengers at the
head of the present City Dock, and
the passenger service will be inaugu
rated on next Wednesday.
This service will include direct com
munication between Annapolis and Ox -
ford, Cambridge and Easton daily.
The company’s handsome steamer for
passenger service came into Annapo
lis yesterday and made the trip from
here over the proposed route of the
ntV survive. She will carry over
two hundred passengers, is roomy ami
comfortable, but will handle but
little freight. This end of the busi
ness is to be handled by a steamer
devoted exclusively to freght.
When the proper ordinance is
granted and the arrangement between
the steamboat company and the Elec
trie Line completed the Annapolis ter
minal and meeting point between the
two wili be at the foot of King
George street.
ARE THE DOCTORS I.V\
Only One Case Of Tvphnid kcpnrinl
When 0 To 8 Arc known
The City Health Officer, Hr. Will
iam S. Welch, urges all physicians
to comply with the law as far as
possible, in reporting cases of infer
tious and contagious diseasdk
For some unknown reason the law
is not enforced, and is Hot even oh
served by the more thoughtful and
conscientious although there is a
penalty for its violation. The re
cent health report of the City Health
Officer does not show the number
of typhoid cases that really exists
in this city, and when approached
on the subject, I)r. Welch was sur*
prised to know of them as they had
not been reported. He urges and
requests physicians to comply with
the letter of the law.
