The Adder was saved by th heroism of
Boatswain Derry, who responded to a call
for volunteers and Swam 100 yards with a
hawser after him. The Moccasin Is ashore
at Currituck and appears to be only slightly

to make It almost Impossible to .retain a

he went back to the tug hand over hand

Moeeaala la Baa Shape.
Oreat confusion was caused here today
by conflicting reports regarding the where
abouts of the Peoria, Adder and Tankton.
The navy yard was without any Informa
tion whatever and th weather bureau re
ported the tug and the Adder as going
direct to Annapolis. In naval circles these
circumstances, together with the Inability
of the life savers to enter th stranded
vessel, .caused some uneasiness, especially
over the condition of the Moccasin. The
Currituck life saving station reports the
Moccasin in good condition, without any
water In it.
From the reports received, however. It Is
not thought any headway can be made to
ward floating the vessel without the aid of
wreckers, as It is high and dry upon the
beach at low water and directly In a steady
surf and high tide. It was said at the navy
yard today that Boatswain Derry will be

The Peoria sought to catch them, but
they drifted southward before the wind

on which to get a hold, so the tug could
only run lit between them and keep them
from bumping together.

Mane for the Adoption
WASHINGTON, Dee. 4-Srcretary of th
Navy Moody In his annual report refers at
length to the Organization of the Navy de
partment: As the naval establishment grows In Im
portance and the amount of public money
devoted to Its maintenance is Increased Its
proper administration Justly becomes an
object of solicitude. There has been, there
fore, much discussion concerning the or
ganisation of the department. It is as
serted by many, both within and without
the naval service, that alterations in the
organic law governing the administration
of the naval affnlrs would result In an In
creased efficiency and economy. The agi
tation for a change comes from so many
and such respectable quarters thnt It cannot
he denied consideration. It has been pointed
out with truth that In the civil war, and
In a very much less degree In the wsr witlj
Spain the organisation proved Inadequate.
The practices prevailing In times of peace
were modified and additional agencies of
mllltarv administration were adopted, and
It is claimed that a fcrm of military ad
ministration that is not adapted alike to
war and to peace is not a sunmue one.
There cannot be said to be an agreement
upon the exact measure of the reform de
sired, nor, Indeed, an universal agreement
that any reform at all is neenea.
The proposals for changes muy be classi
fied ss follows: ...
1. Alterations In the naval yarns wnicn
will Increase the power and responsibility
of officers stationed there over and for
work progressing therein.
2. The conso idatlon of the bureaus In the
department. s .
3. The creation of a general stnrr which
shall be responsible for the efficiency of
the vessels afloat and the personnel of

Tt Is nnt mr nurniss to revommend tspe-
