Sailors Do Not Make the Best
PLAN TO SUPPLANT NAVAL RESERVE
Captain It. E. Davis, of the Oregon
Brigade, Not In Accord with. Sec
retary Lons'i Suggestion.
Captain Robert E. Davis, of Portland,
Commander of Oregon's Naval Brigade,
does not agree entirely with Secretary
Lang's Idea, of supplanting the existing
naval militia with men from the mer
chant service. Views of the Secretary ot
the Navy are glvin in the following press
"Secretary Long. It is said in a special
dispatch to the Tribune from Washing
ton, will. In his report, urge the estab
lishment ot a naval reserve to supplant
the existing naval militia, which is sup
posed to have outlived its usefulness, as
16 shown by its rapid deterioration since
the war with Spain. The proposed Na
tional Reserve is already under consid
eration In Congress, with the Indorsement
of all naval and maritime interests.
"It contemplates the enrollment of offi
cers and seamen in the merchant service
much after the manner of the British re
serve at an expense far below that of the
naval militia, with the advantage of mak
ing seafaring men available to go aboard
lighting ships. It will be shown that in
case of war the number of American
warships now in service would require
at least 600 officers and 10,000 men for
fighting complements. "With a National
naval reserve enrolled, this force would
be secured and made efficient in a few
weeks, while on the other hand the pres
ent naval militia system could not supply
one-tenth the number in twice that time."
Captain Davis thinks the efficiency of
the present reserve could be very much
enhanced by the use of modern ships
and guns in training the recruits Instead
of the old wooden vessels used In these
The training ships Adams and Ranger
used on this Coast," he said. In an in
terview last night, "are out of date, and
do not give the men the most accurate
ideas of what would be expected of them
hi case of real sen-ice," As for sailors
from the xnerohant service making more
effective man-of-war's men than lands
men, Captain Davis differs with the Sec
retary. "No better lighting men can be
found than those taken from land pur
suits aftr they have been thoroughly
traneid on shipboard." the Captain said.
"Rnd the Oregon Naval Brigade com
pares favorably with any other company
of Its age and experience. With the ex
ception of an occasional cruise on a
wooden vessel, our men are compelled to
rely on the training afforded by the ap
pliances at the Armory. On our last
practice trip on board the Philadelphia,
In August, we went through all the de
tails of seamanship, signaling and the
use of guns, and although we have not
heard from Washington in regard to re
sults, we have received commendations
from experienced men in regard to the
efficiency of the brigade.
"The Naval Brigade costs the General
Government very little, as only $35,000 a
year Is appropriated for Its maintenance.
Bach company is allowed J35 per month.
which does not go very far toward the
actual expenses, some of which are borne
by the states themselves.
"With modern ships and guns and an
appropriation sufficient to cover the ex.
pense. the present Naval Reserve can be
made perfect in efficiency, and there will
be no difficulty In obtaining all the young
men needed. Even with the present ob
solete type of appliances, our men have
shown remarkable efficiency. X, for one,
do not bell"-e the service can be Im
proved by confining the recruits to sailors
from the merchant marine of the coun
try, who are by no means the equals, as
a class, of our young men taken from
the pursuits at home. Experience has
shown that the country can depend on
these when the Nation needs efficient

.EXIT BY TURNSTILE.
New Device Is Adopted nt the Union
The Terminal Company Is putting In an
elaborate turnstile near the main exit
gate, at the Grand Central station. The
object of Its construction Is -to let people
out of the enclosure surrounding the
train platform, without letting any in.
Much speculation as to how a turnstile
could be made to work In that one-sided
way has been Indulged by the hotel-runners,
hack-drivers and other regular fre
quenters of the station, and it was ar
gued that the thing was Impossible. But
these men had not seen the turnstile exits
at the World's Fair, Chicago, and the
Midwinter Fair, San Francisco.
The turnstile Is about six feet high, and
resembles a revolving horse rack in a
perpendicular-position. The teeth of the
rake are of Inch-and-a-half gas pipe,
about four feet long, run through a stout
timber, set on a pivot. An iron pawl
and ratchet on top of this post permit
the stile to be turned one way, and it
can only bo worked from Jnslde the plat
But can't a man on the outside get in
while the thing is turning to let the man
on the inside get out? No, he can't.
Long fingers of gas pipe project from one
side of the gate, and as they dovetail
Into the bars of the stile, the man on
the outside cannot go through that way.
Even the man who Is going out cannot
get back after the bars behind him havo
met the short bars at his side, as the
ratchet and pawl have attended to that
There wont be very much room to spare
for the person passing through, and u
stout man or woman will have little to
spare in making the exit.
The enclosure surrounding the train
platform Is kept closed, except while pas
sengers are passing through the gates
on arrival or departure of trains, as pub
lic safety demands the exclusion of all
others from, the platform while trains are
being made up. The hobo who desires
to settle himself comfortably on the rods
or brakebeam, or to creep Into the tool
box or on to the blind baggage platform.
Is also excluded by this means, and so. Is
compelled to risk his life In Jumping the
train as It slows up on entering the steel
bridge. But there are many persons who
have legitimate business within the yam
who desire to get out Into the street
while the gates are all locked. Train
hands, telegraph operators, policemen, de
pot porters and others who enter while
the gates are open, frequently desire to
remain -until after they have been closed
and locked, by the regular depot official.
The new turnstile will let these people
out, blut it will not thereafter let them
in. Tho apparatus is said to be the first
of its kind set up In this part of the
Two boys about 13 years of age fought
for about 15 minutes yesterday on the
Intersection of East Oak street and
Union avenue, surrounded by a crowd of
admiring Juveniles. They -went at It in
true pugilistic style. There were upper
cuts, hooks and knockdowns. When tho
youngsters clinched they were separated
and made to stand up. Quite a crowd
gathered as the fight progressed. The
boys slugged, each other severely, and
both were knocked down. Finally the
mothers of the boys came along and took
tho young pugilists in charge and march
ed them away. Both were severely pun
ished. It did not seem to occur to any
one who eaw the affair that it was not

HELD UP BY FOOTPADS.
Pendleton Man Robbed of $70 One
Snspcct Under Arrest.
While going to the Union station at 8:30
last evening. Ml Obyle, a railroad em
ploye at Pendleton, was held up by three
footpads and robbed of $70, and a sliver
watch. Obyle was unable to locate the
place of attack definitely, but tho rob
bery took place on the north end of Sixth
street, near the station. One of the men
suspected of the robbery was arrested an
hour later by Patrolman Bailey.
Obyle was walking down Sixth street
when he was suddenly seized from behind
by the three men, thrown to the ground
and held by two of them while his pock
ets were rifled by the third. A bundle
of blue shirts tho old man carried, his
hat and handkerchief were also taken.
The men then ran away, leaving Obyle ly
ing on the ground. When he recovered his
senses sufficiently he proceeded to tho
Union station and Informed Patrolman
Bailey of the robbery. The latter brought
him to the police station, and the police
men in the vicinity were Immediately no
tified. Back on his beat an hour later. Patrol
man Bailey saw a suspicious-looking man
with a bundle und6r his arm. He stopped
him, and, examining tho contents, found
tho shirts taken from the old man. The
suspect was immediately placed under
arrest, and gave the name of J. W. Brown.
He said he had Just arrived from Cali
fornia, and accounted for his possession of
the shirts and the handkerchief belonging
to Obyle as haviner found them In the
street. He was booked with a charge of
highway robbery at tho police station. 1
Obyle is being held as a witness.

Mndison-Street Bridge Dravr Com
plete except the Asphalt Work.
The new draw on Madison-street bridge
will be declared open for team traffic
this afternoon If the County Commis
sioners and City Engineer Chase decide
that the daubing of hot asphaltum on the
wood blocks has been done "according to
Hoyle." The pavement was completed
yesterday, and liquid asphalt brushed in
between the blocks, but the officials who
went down to take a look at it thought
there were too many chinks which had
not yet been filled up, and the first show
er of rain will proceed to fill these with
water, which the Commissioners desire
as much as possible to exclude.
The wood blocks on the west end of the
bridge have begun to swell here and
there. In bunches like those on Fourth
street, and several bumps are noticeable
between the street-car tracks. The bridge
officials attribute this swelling to hurried
and Imperfect treatment of the blocks,
which were cut from green timber. Just
before they were put down, last Spring.
The blocking of the draw, it is said, has
been thoroughly seasoned and boiled in
carbolaneum, and no trouble from swell
ing or shrinkage Is expected. The mock
ing on the east end of the bridge Is stand
ing the travel and the weather better, as
more care was taken In preparing tho
timber before it was laid down.

Owner of Hnverly's New Minstrels.
A few years ago a young man by the
name of W. E. Nankevllle was thi prin
cipal member of the vocal corps of Hav
erly's Mastodon Minstrels ("Forty! Count
em"). His clear tenor voice stood out
in volume and sweetness above the others
and his solos were always a musical treat,
and such songs as "Memories of the
Past," "When Jack Sails Home," "There's
a Star in the Sky for Us All," "One Day
in May" and'a dozen others which were
composed by him grew Into popularity
all this, as above mentioned, was a few
years ago. Today the same W. E. Nanke
vllle is sole owner of the New Haverley's
Mastodon Minstrels. Other clever vocalists
sing the popular 'songs now, while the
progressive Nankevllle occupies the man
ager's chair and also owns three other
prominent attractions as well. Haverly's
Minstrels comes this time entirely
changed, and with everything brightly re
arranged and a company of strength, its
ensemble including George Wilson, orig
inal Big Four, Gardner & Hunt, Baker &

Hoyt's "A Day and a Nlcht."
With the utmost attention to detail,
this great success of a successful author
Is scheduled to be with us soon. The
cast this season Is composed of actors
and actresses of known ability absolute
ly not a stick among 'em. This Is a re
freshing Innovation when wo consider
that most farce-comedy companies trav
eling nowadays, as well as dramatic or
ganizations and opera companies, carry
some deadwood who make up In number
what they lack in' talent.
Hoyt's "A Day and a Night" company
has for its members the pick of a crowd
ed profession. The ladles are beautiful,
graceful, talented. The men are dashing,
brainy and attractive. The tout ensemble
results in a perfect performance. No de
tail has been forgotten, from the carpet
to the pen-wiper. Of the play Itself, it
may be superfluous to speak, because it
Is so well known; and besides, like the
reading of a bookv one who is told much
about It does not care to read it, no
matter how Interesting it may be, or how
clever its author's reputation. Let It suf
fice that "A Day and a Night" abounds
with the very funny entanglements of a
country deacon who visits New York for
the purpose of getting some singers for
a village choir. There are novel special
ties. All the songs and music are up to
date. There are delicate surprises in store
for the patrons of this play, which will
be at the Metropolitan on Sunday, No
vember 18, and for one week.
Thousands whom it has cured vouch for
the value of Hood's Sarsaparllla as a
cure for catarrh.
