the Tribune fromiWashington says: The
president's nomination of Richard Pear
ton Hobson, to be advanced ten num
bers troin number one on the lilt of a
itant naval constructors, If said by
naval officers to constitnU the greatest
material promotion as a recognition of

ment amounts to 250 numbers iu the
line of the navy which if remarkable In
comparison with Ihe single number re
ceived by Admiral Dewey, eight num
bers by Admiral Sampson and from
three to five frli by inher oflicet dui

the naval construction orp", however,
Hobson will not reach the senior posi
