FUGS OF ADMIRALS.
by ths Colors,
In old sea stories one occasionally
romca upon the term admiral of the
blue, rod or white. In byROUQ days tho
color of nn admiral's (lap proclaimed
his rank. Now It denotes hla seniority.
Uencc It comra nbout that nu admiral
must carry three personal Sag In bis
There are three jrradea of admiral
idmlral, vice ndmlml and rear adml
rat At one time commodore made n
kind of half admiral, but that urnJo
baa now been abolished.
The route of an admiral la made plain
to all seafaring persons by the nuiu
tier of stars on the flag hoisted at hla
foremast head. Thus four stars show
nn admiral, three a vice admiral and
two a rear admiral. This Is alinplo
enough, but the harassing question
arose. What If two admirals, two vlco
tdmlrals or two rear admirals should
happen to sail Into port, each with a
squadron What, Indeed. If three ad
ulrals, and so forth, should appear on
tho samo scene? How could any ono
distinguish between thorn? Some In
nocent governor or mayor returning a
visit of courtesy might call upon the
Junior first, and that would be a bad
To obviate such a mhchanco It Is
now tho custom for odmlraN to mark
their seniority by tho color of their
flags. Thus If three rear admirals
happen into a port tho senior tiles n
btuo flag with two stars, tho second a
red flag with two stars and the Junior
a whlto flag with the same constella
tion. If the senior should leave port
first the second promptly hoists his
blno flag and the Junior the red. Then
ir ine second admiral steamed away
the Junior would hoist the bluo flag for
all the personal satisfaction tbcro was
But hero a serious question comes
up. Suppose In the meantime n fourth
rear admiral appeared on the scene.
Then, as a naral authority explain,
the situation for the rcspectlTe flag
lieutenants would become complicated.
There would be two rear admirals of
tho white, ono senior to tho other, yet,
so far as naval etiquette goes. Indis
tinguishable In a flag sense even to an
ablo sea man.
Of course this Is not very likely to
happen except where the fleets of sot
eral nations gather. Then there woutd
be a tremendous scramble to hunt up
dates of promotion, becauso the flag
lieutenant who carried his admiral off
to call upon a Junior would thereafter
bo an unhappy flag lieutenant.
