H. J. Mackin left yesterday morn

so scores of the younger unmarried
officers regarded the opportunity to
see something of the world with keen
est appreiatton. Many of the older
officers, however, who have been in
all the ports to be visited and whose
families are left behind for many
months to come, felt differently.
Many were heard to express the hope
that they might receive shore duty
upon arrival at San Francisco.
Not a single note of doubt from
flag officers to ordinary seaman was
heard regarding the certain success
of such an undertaking. Interviews
with Commanding officers sent out,
the result was nothing but the most
sanguine certitude of success. The
two months interim between arrival
and departure at San Francisco was
gratifying to many, as it will afford
them an opportunity to be rejoined
by their relatives before their depart
ure on the long cruise.
