Senior Member Of Local Firm

QUOTES SUGAR DEALERS
W. F. Childs, senior member of the
well known local firm, W. F. Childs A-
Son, one of the largest dealers in
sugar and other goods in the town, ap
preciating th.e acute stage of the sugar
situation in Annapolis, gave the fol
low .ng interview to the Capital yester
day:
“I read with interest your paper
of Thursday, October 9, with reference
Ito the sugar situation here and else
where. I cannot sec where the C. I)
Kenny Co., of Baltimore, have been
|able to get such encouraging reports
I have no doubt that they have large
supplies on hand as they are among
the largest, if not the largest. Handlers
of sugar in Baltimore. We have made
no effort to get sugar of this flr:n.
Will say, however, that if our trade
had been dependent upon the Balti
more distributors for sugar, there
would have been an extreme scarcity
in the supply.
“My lirm, the entire season, would
have had no sugar had not the Frank
lin Sugar Company, of Philadelphia,
come to the rescue. We do not 'know
what would have become of tlie fruits
in this section. I find during the sea
son that Baltimore has furnished us
with four thousand pounds, the Frank
lin Sugar Refining Co., with one hun
dred and ten thousand pounds; or 106
thousand pounds more than we were
able to get from three Baltimore firms,
although we have had orders tilled
and promises of shipments.

MARTIAL REACHES END
Testimony Completed Yesterday And
Argument Of Opposing Counsel
Under Way Today
The Court-Martial at the Naval
Academy of Lieut.-Colonel Richard P.
Williams, U. S. Marine Corps, which
has been in session the entire week
was practically concluded today when
the final argument of the case was de
livered by the Judge Advocate, Lieut.-
Colonel Charles It. Taylor on behalf
of the prosecution, and Ridgely P. Mel
vin. of Annapolis, on behalf of tlie ac
cused officer.
The taking of testimony for both
sides was completed yesterday, so that
today’s session was given over entirely
to the argument of counsel.
The defense began its testimony yes
terday morning and finished during
the day. The witness called for the
accused officer were: John H.
Weedon, warden of the Annapolis Jail;
Major John Marston, of the Marine
Barracks; Turlett Hush, of the State
Roads Commission, and George Craig,
of Annapolis. The service record of
the accused was also testified to and
tiled in the case.
it is understood that the findings of
the Court-Martial will, under the regu
lations, not be made public until all
the usual formalities have been com
plet'd with and the case sent to the
Navy Department to be reviewed.
The case against Lieut.-Commander
I). W. Owens, U. S. Navy, Medical
Corps, will probably be taken up be
fore the same Court-Martial next week,
the charges being practically the same
as against Lieut.-Colonel Williams and
growing out of an automobile ride on
the Annapolis - Baltimore boulevard
about a month ago.
Services Resumed
Services will be held in-'St. Luke's
Chapel, Eastport, tomorrow evening at

Members Of All Three Upper
Classes Get Together And
1 Make Vow There Will Be None
In Future, Also That “Rates"
Will Be Abolished And All
Students Will Enjoy Like
Privileges
Coming as a semi-climax to the ser
ies of reports that hazing has been
flourishing at the Naval Academy
since the term began the mem
bers of the three upper classes got
together.late yesterday afternoon, and
drew up on their own initiative, a sol
emn declaration that they will not in
the future engage in hazing or run
ning in any form. The declaration is
a sweeping one, and commendable on
their part to show that they have the
proper spirit looking to the preser
vation of strict discipline among the
'student body. It was therefore, re
| reived w ith pleasture by the authori
ties.
it will not, however, deter Admiral
Scales from pursuing the investiga
tion which he has launched. On the
contrary, lie stated today that lie will
go ahead with all possible vigor in an
effort to discover to what extent haz
ing has existed In the past, at leaHt
since lie took charge of affairs at the
academy several months ago.
The declaration made hy the mid
shipmen reads as follows:
"We, the undersigned members of
the regiment of midshipmen, realizing
the gravity of current rumors as to re
cent incidents which have been re
puted to be caused by hazing, desiring
to correct these impressions and at
the same time endeavoring to make a
recurrence of such reports impossible,
do hereby solemnly affirm that,
"Recent newspaper reports cover
ing the action of two midshipmen are
a mere handfull of invidious and gen
eral statements. The reference'to
hazing in these cases has no founda
tion in fact, nor has proof been offer
ed to substantiate them.
“In order that there may be no re
currence of reports sodistasteful to all
members of the regiment, not to men
