THE PROPOSED KAVY YARD.
Tm: recommendation ot a site on
the Sound for a navy yard seems to
be without result for rf time. Whether
tins is due to the recent wonderful im
provement of the Columbia bar, and
to a desire to await further develop
ments, is not positively known. There
are some features of a Sound location
ot such a ynrd that will strike any one
as being peculiar. Chief among these,
is the fact that the entrance is con
trolled only on one side by the United
States, and that it is a long and ex
posed entrance for any ship desir
ing to reach, such a yard.
"When we consider that the ships
most in need of such a yard are in a
semi-crippled condition, and need
shelter and protection as quickly a
.possible, it seems a little old to force
them to run past more than a huu"
dred miles of what may be an enemy's,
territory, before reaching a point for
repairs. For a vessel compelled to
rely somewhat on sails, and to tack,
such an entrance is still worse. To
the ordinary mind it seems most de
sirable, not only that both shores or
such an entrance should be in actual
jx3sossion or United States forces, but
that both these shores should be peo
pled by friendi populations, prepared
to assist in every way.
.Another necessary feature is that
such an entrance should be a short
and quickly closed gateway. At the
Columbia or at San Francisco a few
aninutas from the open ocean will
place a vessel in safety. At the
Sound hostile ships could chase the
unfortunate vestcl along more than a
hundred miles of entrance. The lat
ter Tassel, being coaGued iu its course
to only one direction, would have less
chnncs of o-enpe tliun if on the open
ocoeu, and the entrance instead of
being a means of safety, becomes a
The site of a navy yard should be
accessible, by land and railways, from
orory direction except seaward both
to prevent the enemy's vessels from
mirrocnduigtha t;ite and attacking it
from many directiens: and also in or
dr tnai railways may enter from sev
eral directions. If placed en a penin

Two or three newspapers are giv
ing a gJt deal of attention to what
thoy call "lite preparations for the
nomination of Mr. Blaine as the lie
publican candidate for the presidency
in 1SSJ2." There is not the slightest
ovidonce that Mi. Blaine has been con
sulted -with icference to this candi
dacy, but that doe-, not detract from
the general interest of the subject.
Tho 2sew York .; mentions iu this
connection that there is an endeavor
of the Republican managers to bring
about at the saine time the nomination
of Mr. Clevelaud on the Demo
cratic side. The indications are
that the Republican managers
will not bo required to render
much assistance. Mr. Cleveland is
the only great man in the Democratic
party under the age of 90 who has the
faculty of bringing liiinself before the
public, if we may except Mr. Camp
bell or Ohio and Mr. Brice of New
York. The bun says the Republi
cans are well aware "that of all the
conspicuous Domocrats Mr. Cleveland
is about the easiest to beat, and he has,
therefore, been selected as the antago
nist for Brother Blaiue to knock
Georgia lias a poslofiico named
"Talking Bock."' Some one in the
vicinity found a large stone upon
which was painted tho "word1?, '"Turn
me over." It required great strength
io accomplish this, and -when it was
done the command, 'Now turn me
back, and let me fool some one else,"
painted on the under side or the stone,
mot the eye.
Postmaster Ge:o:raii "Waxamakee

the cabinet in certain directions. He

fact that at a recent reception he
learned all about Hcnrik Ibsen from
a chance acquaintance.

Important Land Decision.
Secretary Noble has made an in
teresting decision in a homestead case
from the stale of Washington. It
is the somewhat celebrated case
of Swanson against Anderson.
Anderson had entered tho land
under the homestead law and
was fulfilling the law and its require
ments wnen ne Decame insane, J
wandered away from homo audhas
not been seen since. Of course the re
quirements of the homestead law were
! neglected. Malhilde Olsen trot a de
cree of the court of Pierce county de
claring Anderson insane and naming
herself his guardian. A man named
Swanson filed on the land. His
claim was rejected by the local
ollice. He appealed to tho gen
end office, holding that the law had
not been complied with, and that it
had never been proven that Anderson
was insane, a3 he could not be pro
duced in court. Secretary Noble de
nies this motion for a review of the
case, and says that the land may bo
held by the guardian. The decree of
the court appointing the guardian
could only be attacked collaterally,
and then the burden of proof would
be with Swanson. He must provo
that Auderson was not insane. The
case is regarded as imporlantj as a
ruling on the rights of guardians in
