scheme of the Wilson administration.
Secretary of the Navy Daniels has
signed an order which absolutely pro
hibits the use or introduction of alco
holic liquor upon any vessel of tho
navy or within the confines of any
Tbia order was issued today to the
wsrrico and will become effective on
Jnly 1, 1914.
Besides abolishing what is known
as the officers' wine mess on hoard
ship and thejmle of llguor at.the.oin-.
er clubs' on'shore, Mr. Daniels' or
:ar is so sweeping as practically to
inforce total abstinence upon naval
efucers for extended periods.-
It will henceforth be a violation of
Itoo order for any officer or guest
upon any naval vessel to have in bis
possession any alcoholic beverage.
Officers living on shore will be pro
" hiblted from having- any liquor in
Uvoir private honies if their duties re
quire their residence on naval reser

is Secretary Daniel's determination
that it shall be rigidly observed.
There wais much speculation here
as to whether or not President Wil
son hud been -consulted in regard to
the order. It is known that it was
not discussed before tho cabinet, but
Secretary Daniels' friends declare
thnt he hardly would have taken this
important action without first ascer
taining the president's views.
In no other navy in the world, so
far as Is known to naval officers here,
is there any such rule or regulation
as that Just Issued by Secretary Dan

in such quantities and at such time
as they see lit without any restric

While Secretary Bryan with his
grape juice' episode and Secretary
Daniels with his present order have
taken very decided stands on- the
temperance question, there has ap.
parently been no intention of the
president to prevent his guests at

from exercising their own judgment
as to whether or not they will take
