In-chief of- the Pacific fleet , in pursuance
suanco of orders received from the

Stories reflecting seriously upon the
character of the retiring admiral are
being circulated widely , and naval
officials have taken cognizance ol
them. There is an Intimation In these
stories that the admiral has been
forced to retire.
