last, it cn the job.
The Priifie coast' dream ot a jell'
oration, her iusistont demand of two
decades und her great expectation m
the past few weeks, were all realized
shortly after 9 o'clock this morning,
when tho newly created western arma
da, with its new commundci, Admiral
Hugh- Rodman, on the brulgo of his
flagship, the New Mexico, wun, ma
jestically past iu review bcior Secre
tary of Navy Josephus Dai. uls. The
cerenmny marking the official entry of
tlio fleet into its newly assigiKu home
waters took place off Coronado .beach,
just outside San Diego harbor.
Following the review, in which tho
fleet steamed past the Montana, from
which the secretary of the nuvy lia8
broken out his flag, all of the vessels
with the exception of the giuni ('tend
naughts, entcrud the harbor und took
up anchorage positions.
The six drendnanglits dropped their
anchors off Cnronado Islands and will
not attempt to enter the hnruor, despite
the endeavors of Sun Dieguns to have
at least the flagship, the New lie xico,
berthed inside. Admiral Rodn.s.n gave
as his official reason for keeping his
first line ships outside the fact, that
the harbor would be pretty well filled
with smaller craft of the fleet. Naval
men, however, put over quite a bit of
fleet propaganda by letting it be known
tlmt the commander was di&im lined to
take Kny chances until congress has seen

naval men regard as necessary ut Han
This same condition is said to exist at
a number of other 1'iicific const ports
which will be given a long distance
look bv the big ships and a hint to
have their congressmen get busy if they
desire a closer view.
The fleet completed its rendezvous,
following Its trip through the i'aiiama
canal, off tho CoMmado Islands yester
day. Following a busy day, in which
the finishing toltc lies were uddrd to the
