Cajpt. John M Bow ye rno longer .*
p* rmitted to aixir. st-r the affairs
i the Naval Academy, a* he and his
a-a re bowrd hold they should be.
w th at c- mltag the authorst.es in
Washing to-. says a Wash -gtor des
rat h t - the Balt more Sub yesterday.
W fc. n Captain Bowyer first be
a* -aperinte-deist of the Academy,
a year ago. t was et the earnest
* . ati*>a of Secretary Meyer. As
,-t S- -retary W nthrop. who was
■ t .a---2 •• .'b of the Naval Acad
- y a a r*. v *.tcd the Academy, ard
afte* a g ral mspecioo came back
* :fc th*- imnctloa that Capta.n
B *y*r was the man for the place,
a J that by filing the place he knew
what polices should t>e pur
*han the author ties in Washing
t ' Ac rdir.gly. Captain Bowyer
was g ver. carte-blanche to proceed in
h - owr, way.
Ar 1 this Capta.n Bowyer did. Mid
-hipmen were dropped left and right.
Tb- reports of the academic board
were regarded as final on all exarct
nat or.s, and every demerit was
i carefully coc ted. Accordingly, when
st became apparent that a midship
man was no longer fit to continue
in the Academy he was dropped.
Many of such cases came under the
heading of "inaptitude,” or g nated
by Captain Bowyer.
The department first began to
disapprove Captain Bowyer's recom
mendations when several midship
men who were found deficient were
allowed to continue. This action was
usually traced to the White House or
to political channels. This was dis
; couragir.g to the superintendent, who
was endeavoring to build up a model
discipline and mental average. Sever
al members of the class of 190 S also
were found deficient by the academic
board, and there was consternation
i in the service when the department
: ordered that several of them be con
j tinued for re-examination. Various
i excuses as to physical ailments, etc.,
were given. These also were traced
for the most part to political influ
ence.. The amount of political influ
. ence which figures in the retention in
the Naval Academy or in the service
generally has not been unusual: in
fact, perhapps not as much as was
noticed during the Roosevelt adminis-
I tratior..
The navy had expected a different
policy, however, and since it was
; promised there has been consider
able disappointment. The officials
contend that the law provides that
no midshipman shall be retained in
:h- s -rvice after having been found
by the board as disqualified, and
accordingly have asked the depart
ment to obtain an opinion on tbis
from the Attorney General. The
department has an opinion from the
Judge Advocate General, which
holds such action legal, but with
this Captain Bowyer and his aca
demic h ard ar*- not satisfied.

’ Arumklite> Complain Of Postal
Service Between Annapolis
And Arundel*On*The*Ba\
The Gwvevaaeat Pen\ Ht*e \ai Pound
Foolish Should Ma>e Para! K< ate
In this advanced age. where the
rural free delivery system covers
all country districts far and near,con
tiguous to towns of any sir* and ire
porta nee. the distribution *of sal
route? throughout the country is
spread out over the map like a Spi
der's vreb.
Today the business tr.ar. and pro
fessional man can hie himself to the
back woods, as it were.for a vacation,
m les and miles from town, and re
ceive his mail at his very door post
or the opening to his shack or tent,
to-ach an unlimited extent nas the
mail route spread itself. Indeed.it is
difficult for a brain worker, (unless
he go to sea to get out of the reach
of bis mail, try as he may.
This is all very well, but when a
vacationer does go where he an re
c*ive mail and despatch sa :e, he
wants it d-.ne in the best • issible
manner, and with the best i .-Hities
that the r ail service of Un.le Sam
affords. This, however, is ot the
case with the residents at Arundel
or.-tbe-Bay, the service of which
between Annapolis and that place is
the poorest possible. For instance,a
gentleman at Arundel had a telegram
mailed him in the Annapolis post
office on Sunday afternoon, which v -
not delivered until Tuesday morning
at 11 o’clock at Arundel.
The message, an important or.e,
would have been delivered over the
telephone Sunday but the line be
tween Annapolis and Arunde!-on-the-
Bay was out of commission. There is
no good reason why a message mailed
on Sunday in Annapolis should not
be delivered by mail on Monday
morning at Arundel. This is only one
of the many instances of poor mail
facilities between the two places. At
Arundel-on-tbe-Bay business and pro
fessional men of high standing have
their summer homes. Men who are j
connected in a business way with the
highest authorities in the United !
States; men who have correspon- (
ience with the President himself j
live at Arundel-on-tfce-Bay. and it is
of the most vital" importance that *
the mail facilities are the very best
That they are not. goes without
saying. The Government is niggard
ly when it chooses to be, and the
Federal authorities in order to save
a few cents and give any kind of
mail service to Arundelites adver
tised for bids to carry the mail to
and from Arundel-on-the-Bay daily.
There were several proposals, the
contract being, of course, awarded
to the lowest bidder, a man feeble i
in health, who. it is understood, does
not live on the route, as required by
the law and postal regulations, and a
man too poor to keep a horse able
bodied enough to carry the mail twice ;
daily. The mail carrier between An- I
napolis and Arundel-on-the-Bay gets
the small fee of §1.20 per day, and
is obliged to make four trips of six
miles each daily. He comes in for the
morning's mail (there is only one de- 1
livery there daily) taking the mom- j
ing's mail from Annapolis postofF.ee i
in time for delivery at Arundel at 1
II a. m. week days and at noon on
Sundays. He leaves &: 4 p. m., or
thereabouts, in time to meet the out
going afternoon’s mail at 5:30 or
6:30 from Annapolis, but oftentimes,
because his horse gives out. and he is
obliged to turn it out to grass, and
walk the rest of the way, or “foot
it," the entire distance, the mail
does not reacc this postoffice in time
to leave the same evening, but is held
over until next day.
The postofFce authorities at Wash
ington don't seem to care who deliv
ers the mail at Arundel-on-the-Bay,
just so he is bonded and furnishes
the required bond, ar.d does the ser
vice at the least possible cost. It is
hoped next year to have better mail
service at ’Arundel, and a fight will
be made for the rural free delivery
there. One gentleman engaged in
newspaper work in Washington,
whose summer home is at Arundel-on
the-Bay. is obliged to hire a man ar.d
keep a horse ready to saddle at any
moment to despatch his important
mail matter, “copy,” etc., because
of the faulty mail facilities, which
the Department has been importuned
to improve, but has so far unheeded
the importuning.

the happenings oa the summer cruise
One midshipman s op.non of price*
asked for commodities *sd **>uv* r.ir*
in the ports visited beggar? descrip
tion He write* to hss mother in
New York as follows:
“Well, we're again rolling around
on the old Atlantic out of sight of
land, bat expecting to pick up the
Madeira* tomorrow morning. Our
stay in Gibraltar was very short and
we didn't have but two days of liber
ty.only one of which 1 could leave the
ship on account of being on watch.
‘ We got into Gibraltar last Tues
day and spent that day getting the
j coaling gear working, and the next
day were turned out at 4a. m. By
4:30 we were busy filling coal bags
with the dirtiest coal in the most
unhandy barges invented. We only
knocked off for breakfast and lunch,
and quit for the day before dinner.
The other ships coaled way into the
night by the light from their search
lights and thus finished, but we turn
ed in, in our dirty coaling clothes ar.d
started coaling again Thursday morn
ing at 5 o'clock.
“The other ships being coaled, the j
fellows on them went on liberty at 9,
much to our disgust, and it wasn’t
until noon that we put on the one
hundred and ten hundredth ton.’ As
soon as we had dug most of the dus:
out of our ears, eyes, nose and j
everywhere, we went ashore. A ;
bunch of us took one of the crazy j
little carriages they have there and i
drove around the town for two
hours and over into the quaint little !
Spanish town on the mainland.
There is only one street in Gibral
tar, it runs all the way along through
the town and is the narrowest, crook
edest, most picturesque street I’ve
seen yet. Two carriages can barely
pass in it and there is no sidewalk.
Numbers of bazaars on both sides are
filled with silks, laces and brass
things and kept by the smoothest,
: crafty ar.d most hospitable robbers
; in the world.
“I spent an hour or more in the
bazaars and enjoyed haggling with
the Moors over the prices of different
little things. You have to take the !
price they name and divide it in two.
subtract a couple of shillings for good
luck and then divide it by five, in
order to get within a reasonable es
timate of what a thing is really i
worth,but still things are muchxheap
er there than at home.
“Gibraltar is on a peninsula, and $
the English only own a small strip j
of land inland of the rock. There j
lis a good wall and a barbed wire
fence at the limit of that and it is j
well guarded. Nobody is allowed
into town. Between Gibraltar and
the Spanish town, which is right
on the Spanish border, is a strip
of neutral land over which there are
always a few Spanish cavalry men
| wandering and. of all the fantastic,
' story book soldiers, they take the
! cake. Their uniform is a many-col
ored affair, and their hat is a soft
white arrangement. They carry
alongside on their ponderous saddle
a carbine and a sabre about six feet
long. When you go through the gate
into the Spanish town the officials
stop you ar.d feel youu- pockets for :
stuff. The town is just a small, ;
dirty, white-building affair, with an
arena at one end for the bull fights,
which I didn’t see while there.
(“They don’t allow you to go up the ,
Rock above the town on account of !
the fortifications that they throw such
a bluff about. The old place must be
honeycombed with passages for you
can see the holes running all around
it.and if they have good guns in them
all it may be as strong as they say,
but those that you see are old-fash
ioned muzzle loaders. The Rock
from the water looks very grand in
the daytime, but at night while the
Mediterranean and the hills of Spain
to the west are still glowing red from
the sinking sun and the lights in the
town and high on the hills are blink
ing it is indeed a wonderful sight.
“Well, we laid around Friday and
Saturday and were glad on Sunday
to slip our cable and bead out to sea
again, for now every mile is so much
towards home and leave. Just a
month more and we will lash oar ham
mocks for the last time off old Crab
town and the next rooming disem
bark from this old hooper.
“Wednesday This morning about
\ 4 o’clock, while I was on watch, we
sighted the Madeira? and at daybreak
they presented the most wonderful
and beautiful sight. The tops of the
mountains glowed like burnished
> gold and looked almost transparent,
> while the valleys were still dark and
i indistinct. We have just come into
’ the open roadstead to Funchal.and al-
I though the other two ships are at
anchor within a stone's throw of
i the shore, we are steaming around,
• waiting for a big Cunarder to get out
t of the anchorage.
