Rear Admiral Charles W. Bae, englneer-In-cMef
of the I'nlted States navy, in his
annual report calls attention "to the criti
cal condition of engineering In the navy,"
and points to the explosion on the gunboat
Bennington In Ban Diego harbor, which, he
ays, most forcibly emphasises rhe neces
sity of serious and Immediate- attention.
Speaking of the operations of the personnel
bill which merged the corps . of engineer
Into the line of the navy, he says a whohs
oorps of epecJallstii was virtually abolished
and their 'duuff.-transferred to the line.
As all midshipmen at the academy had
been given excellent practical Instruction
In engineering, ho adds, no examination
other than that required for promotion
was demanded of them for qualifying for
the performance of the Joint duties Im
posed by the personnel act. The intent,
however, he continues, was that they should
be ordered at once to the performance of
engineer duty In subordinate capacities, as
assistants of the older engineer officers.
"Owing to the absence of specific Instruc
tions In the personnel bill, combined with
powerful adverse Influences within the de
partment," he continues, "for three yeurs
absolutely nothing wn done by the younger
line officers In acquiring engineering ex
perience, and later, owing to the large
number of ships kept in commission and
the scarcity of officers, hut little in that
dlrcuUon was accomplished."
But for the availability of certain retired
naval officers, the bureau, the report says,
tlons both on shore add at sea.
"Bo few officers of the line are taking
up engineering seriously that the altuation
VU becoming alarming," says the engineer

was a physician who had devoted herself
for years to ministering to the sick ami
Injured and she was beloved by multitudes
who cared nothing for Christianity. Of the
others, one was the Wife and another the
daughter of a physician. Pr. C. .. Ma.-hle,
and the other two. Rev. and Mrs. John
Hogers I'eale. were new missionaries, who
left this country August 1 and had been
In Klenchow only a few dnys. It therefore
appear probable that the attack was made
by some mob which had gathered for an
other purpose and which gave lawless
characters an opportunity1 for plunder and
It should be added, however, that nearly
nil the Chinese In the Cnlted Slates have
come from the province of Kw.ingtung. In
which ltenrhow Is situated, ami reports of
their treatment here have greatly ex
asperated many of the people.
Letters from the missionaries, however,
had not Indicated any interference with
their work or disposition on the part of
the people to molest them.
I'nder these circumstances It appears
that the attack was made by some among
that teeming population who did not know
of the character and work of the Miisslon
arles. ARCANUM WINS ANOTHER CASE
Federal Jndae at ashvllle Rrfnaea
to tirant Injunction to Mem
bers of Order.
NASHVIM,R. Tenn., Nov. I. -The Injunc
tion Nought to prevent the supreme council
of the Royal Arcanum from putting Into
effect the rates adopted at the Atlantic
City meeting and later ratified at PutMn
Bay, O., was denied by Federal Judge
Clark today and the bill of complainants
dismissed. The court held thut It was not
sufficiently clear under the law of Massa
chusetts, In which state the order was In
corporated, that this plan of assessment
and the effect on members Impairs the
obligation of the contract, and until It did
so appear, obviously this court should not
Interfere. He Raid that upon the record, as
now made up:
"I conclude that the complainants arc
without right to the Injunction, and for
exactly the same reason that they are
without right to relief, and Indeed In
junctive relief Is practically the only form
of relief which we find will finally he-of
any n.vaif' The court,on 'Its' own 'motion,'
as It may do on this interlocutory applica-
tlnn, dismisses the bill upon (he ground
that the complainants Are now entitled to
relief In equity; but this dismissal will be
without prejudice, so that it may not be
suggested as In the way of filing a similar
bill In the courts of Massachusetts In event
that the camplalnants or others In like
situation should determine to do so."
The Injunction was uuked for by mem

PACKERS PLEAD IMMUNITY
Additional Fl in Bir Filed bj Attorotji
of If tt King.
MOVE A SURPRISE TO THE GOVERNMENT
Claim That l.arnrld Promised Them
That Testimony They f.ave
should o Be lard
CHICAGO, Nov. ;. Complete Immunity
from prosecution under the pending Indict
ment returned by the federal grand Jury
several months ago Is claimed by Mr. J.
Ogden Armour and other defendant pack
ers and agents charged with being pro
moters of the so-called "Beef trust" In an
additional plea In bar filed late this after
noon by Attorney John 8. Miller, the
packer's representative. The new plea,
which came as a complete surprise to the
government, sets up as fact that when
Commissioner Oarfleld of the Pepartment
of Commerce and Iahor investigated the
beef buslnnes he promised the packers that
whatever testimony they gave without be
ing under oath or whatever documentary
evidence they voluntarily produced the de
fendants should have the same rights. In
demnllies and Immunities as If they had
testified under oath and compulsion, t'nder
this plea Attorney Miller hopes to estab
lish the fact that there was an agreement
between thn packers and the government
that they should testify and produce evi
dence without being auhimenaed or tho
oath being administered, but that as far
as Immunity was concerned it should bo
considered as If they had been subpoenned
and look the oath.
The allegation of an agreement between
Secretary Oarfleld and the packers wss a
surprise to Plsttict Attorney Morrison and
Assistant Attorney fleneral Pngln. and it
wa naid tonight that Secretary Oarflitd
has been asked concerning exactly what
occurred during the Investigation Into the
Alienation In Plea.
The plea alleges that the testimony and
evidence. It was understood, should not be
used by the department of Justice In any I
way as a basis for any prosecution or pro
ceedings against the defendants. Then, it
is declared, with this assurance from the
commissioner, the defendants appeared be
fore him and told concerning the things
wished to be Inquired about and which are
now Incorporated In the Indictment. Not
withstanding tho promises of the govern
ment. It is declared the testimony and evi
dence produced by the defendants were
given to the department of Justice and tin-j
ally to the local district attorney, and thut
this Information has been used and Is now
being UBed In the prosecution of the
packers. All these allegations the defend
ants proclaim themselves ready to verify.

of Setting apart one day In each year for a

who with rugged strength faced the rugped

that once a year our people should i-et
snarl a day for praise and thanksgiving to
the Jver of good, and. at the same time,
that they express their thankfulness for the
abundant merclen received, should manful

I pledge themselves and in good faith to

year we have been blessed with bountiful
crop. Our business prosperity has been
great. No other people has ever stood on

ours now stands. We are not threatened by
foes from without. The foes from whom
wo should prny to be delivered are our own
passions, appetites and follies: and against
these there Is always need that we should
Therefore. I now set spart Thursday, the

rendering thanks unto the Most High for
tne manifold blessings of the past year
consecrate themselves to a life of cleanll'
