It is likely that a court of inquiry will
be ordered to meet at Mare Island to
ascertain why the Banger was permitted
to start tor JJehring rjea with ber
machinery in snch bad shape as to ne
cessitate her putting into Port Towns
end in violation of her orders to proceed
direct. The Secretary of the Navy has
received a report of the court of inquiry
appointed to examine her machinery at
Port Townsend, and the report says her
Captain was justified nnder the circum
stances m putting into fort lownaend.
A crumb of comfort to the Mare Island

in that short time.

complete this long-pending case, hut
with the approval 01 tne board's nndinp
bv the bead ot tbe JNavy Department,
there can be hardly any doubt as to the
result. Tbe rrexident has no aiterna
tive but to drop Commander Smith from
the rolls of the navy if be approves th
proceedings of the board. If he disap-
nroves. another board would have to re
verse the findings of the first board
before Commander Smith could be pro
moted, and inasmu b aa all 01 bis seniors,
with but few exception, have already
officially stated that they do not consider
mm nt lor promotion, it wouia do f
rather difficult matter to get a board
that would make a report favorable to
the candidate. The Judgt Advocate-
General who first reviewed the repor
approved it, and both Secretary Tracy
and Assistant Secretary fieeley have
done likewixe( after a most exhaustive
review o' all the testimony and of the
capers filed in behalf of the candidate
since the board made its report.
