LONDON, Dec. 25. The admiralty have
published details of a new scheme of naval
education, under which cadete tor all
branches of the service will get the same
The earl of Selborne, first lord of the
admiralty. In an explanatory article, argues
that modern developments of the navy
require a change In the personnel of offi
cers, snd adds:.
In the old daya It sufficed If a naval offi
cer was a seaman; now he must be a sea
man, a soldier, an engineer and a man or
science as well. Today more knowledge
and study la needed than In the past and
tne nignest type or naval omcer is tnat in
which great Drofeaslonal knowledge is
added to force of character. The danger
within the navy Itself Is less Insufficient
importance should be attached to the re
sults of study and lest the value of what
Is called practical character should be
placed higher than It deserves.
The scheme will become operative next
July. For the first seven years all cadets
111 receive Identical training In every
branch of the service, special attention
being given to scientific study, but there
after from the age of 20, the cadets will
be drafted Into the different branches and
will begin to specialize.
The scheme enables speedier promotion,
provides for revised rates of pay, the dis
appearance of engineers' disabilities and
promotion to the rank of commander by
While the newspapers this morning gen
erally commend the scheme as a courageous
attempt In the direction of a necessary
reform, It Is expected that It will meet with
considerable opposition. Its principal de
fect, as pointed out In editorial articles,
is that engineers and marine officers will
still be debarred from attaining flag rank,
and that all cadets, therefore, will want to
enter for the executive branch.
The Standard says:
We do not blame the admiralty for hesi
tating to follow the United States, In
whose navy executive and engineer offi
cers have been combined, with dubious re
sults, but the admiralty haa gone so far
that it certainly will be compelled to go

commissioner appointed by Secretary Shaw
to visit the Philippines and Hawaii, Is
bere. In an Interview he said:

natural solution of the difficulty which un
avoidably follows the absorption of trop

In the Carollnaa the negro made the In
dustries what they are.
There might be difficulty In detaining
the blacks, he added, but be thought the
planters could get all they wanted If the
right agents were employed.

tbe Builders' and Traders' exchange and
other similar organizations, Is supporting
the request to congress to pass legislation
allowing the Importation of Chinese labor
ers for plantation work. Local lt-.bor unions
will, however, oppose the plan. It Is un
derstood that the matter will be dealt with
in the report of the commission which re
cently visited Hawaii.
