only to the Army and Navy experts who
. are playing the game and know the con
structive effect of the unloaded mines
and the empty shells.
The exercises are to constitute the only
joint operations of the Army and Navy
during the year. They have been desig
nated "Joint exercises," to distinguish
them from the more elaborate movements
of "combined Army and Navy" maneuv
ers, which were first planned, but which
failed of approval for lack df an ade

operations to be conducted under rules

board of Army and Navy officers.
Solution of the Problems.
' Considerable importance Is attached to
the distinction between maneuvers and
Joint exercises. Maneuvers are held to
apply to operations where actual war
conditions are simulated, while exercises
mean only that certain prescribed prob
lems are to be attempted.
' In the present instance the object of
each of the several forms of attack by
the Navy will be to demonstrate the
strength or weakness of some particular
phase of the defense. From the informa
tion obtainable the programme first con
templates the test of Fortress Monroe.
Expert artillery opinion has long held
that this fortress Is the principal de
fense of the Chesapeake and consequent

The hostile fleet has been assembled
under command of Rear-Admiral Fran
cis W. Dickins, and with his flagship.
the Texas, is lying at Annapolis. June
30 Admiral Dickins will hold his last
communication with shore. He will not
divulge his plans or place of his attack,
but It is the supposition that he will put
to sea, having technically established a
base at Norfolk.
His squadron consists of the battleship
Texas, under command of Captain Blck-
nell, the protected cruisers Newark and
Atlanta, Commanders Badger and Halsey,
respectively;, the double-turret . monitor
Terror, commanded by Lieutenant Ful
ton; the single-turret monitors Florida,
Arkansas and Nevada, Commanders Fre

Hartford. Commander Vedeer; the torpedo-boat
destroyers Whipple, Worden
McDonough and Stewart, under com
mand of Lieutenants Chase, McCorrolck,
Curtln and Sellers; the gunboats Hornet,
Siren and Sylvia, manned by the Mary
land naval militia, and the monitor Purl
tan. by the naval militia of the District
of Columbia. ,
Anchor is to be weighed June S. and
from then on a fascinating game of hide
and-seek will be indulged in between the
artillery and the Navy; that the where

known at midnight of June 11.
it is explained that the night attacks

searchlights of the fortification and also

squadron have been painted four colors;
the Texas, Newark. Atlanta, Terror,
Hornet, Siren and Sylvia are white; the
Florida, Arkansas, Nevada, war color;
the Hartford, black, and the torpedo-boat
destroyers dark green.
Artillery fire will be directed on the
ships as they are picked up by the
lights, but for this exercise the mines
are not regarded as In existence. Tabu
lated observations of what has been ac
complished on each side are to be made
by the umpires and observers. On each

None of the big guns of the Navy will

To locate the mine fields constitutes an
other problem. For some weeks the ar

These mines are not loaded, but con

the fortresses will play on the vessels.

TO CHURCH AND THE' RACES
upon the police of a groat city was em
phasized this week, when Commissioner
McAdoo formally appointed a squad of a
dozen men, In charge of a sergeant, to
look after the newsboys.
It is a law In New York that boys under
10 years old cannot sell papers, boys be
tween 10 and 14. can sell them if they have
a license and a badge, and only boys
over 14 can sell papers after 10 P. M.
Ncwsgirls are also licensed, and arc de

This law has been Ignored, almost from
the start, and representatives of' various
children's societies called on Mr. McAdoo
and asked him to see that the provisions !
of the measure woro fully enforced.
The Commissioner agreed with them.
and now the newsboys have a lively time
of it, for every youngster found selling
papers, is held up, unless he has a badge,
and forced to give an account of himself.
A number of arrests have already been
made, and the police declare they will
keep it up indefinitely.
Rialto Paradcrs Kept on the Move.
Another special squad is detailed
now In the theatrical district, around
Broadway and Forty-econd street.
This is the actor's season of discon
tent, and that part of town is crowded
with unemployed professionals who
exchange long-winded reminiscences
regarding the "hit I made at Missoula,"
As the actors seldom move from the
spot where they hold receptions, and
as mixed In with them ore many race
track followers, ordinary loafers and
a few pickpockets. It Is practically im
possible for prdinary pedestrians to
make their way through tho crush.
Hence the Indignation of McAdoo,
which has caused the assignment of
three extra men to the RIalto, with in
structions to force everybody to move
The new rule, however, meets with
great approval on the part of the New

The visit of the King and President

BERLIN, June 4. All the visiting

Cecilia and the Crown Prince Frederick
William, who are to be married next
Tuesday. Altogether 240 persons were
present at the dinner and Included among
the guests were Cabinet Ministers, Gen

Duchess Cecilia made a remarkable per
sonal Impression on the guests. She
was animated, cordial and unaffected.
Emperor William took Grand Duchess
Anastasla to table and by his attention
to her quite disproved the stories of dis
cord between them. At the conclusion of
the dinner Duchess Cecilia called for
two glasses of champagne and handed
them to the two pages who bore her train.
There were no toasts. The dinner ended
as a torchlight procession of students
with flags and music came down Umer

on a balcony where the Duchess and
Crown Prince stood, in a brilliant light
so that the marchers could see them.

ENTER THE ARENA. OF WHITB SALES" TODAV AT PRICES THAT
Another great sale of Household X-lnens starts this morning with the
same war cry that we have proved In muslin underclothes. Every piece
Is at least lower In price than you can get equally good for anywhere
else in a WWte Salej and the bulk Is a great percentage lower.
Linens are staples on which the margin of profit is small, sd that
when you get them even a little under price you are getting them at
very near cost.
The quantities are very large and the variety of patterns and sizes so
various that there is great scope of choice.
For boarding-houses and hotels as well as households this Is an op
