NEEDS OE THE NAVY.
According to statements made In the
report of Admiral Crowntnshleld. chief of
the Ilureau of Navigation, we have only
Just b'cgmi to build a navy. For several
years the American people lave l>een
thinking they had pretty nearly as good
a navy as any of the Powers of Europe
They know of course that Great Britain
had a great many more ships, but they
were under the Impression that many of
them were out of date, and that the Ore
gon could easily cope with a whole fleet
of them ll seems, however, that they
were mistaken Admiral Crownlnshleld
says that our navy Is bar-ly sufficient for
an effective nucleus about which a larg
er establishment could be formed In case
of war. That certainly Is a rather alarm
ing condition of affairs. W,i have been
at work on the navy pretty steadily for
about ten years. The first vessels of the
new navy are now almost out of dale
I'nleas ■ build much faster than we
have been building we shall never have
what, in the opinion of Admiral Crow
nlnshleld, would lie an effective navy,
because the ships would get out of date
ao fast that the new ones would only' keep
the navy up to its present standard.
Not only Is there need for more chips,
but there Is a call for a very much great

a largo number of vaeancles now. anal no

An academy Is not needed, however, lo
aecuro men for the navy. There are not
nearly enough In the service lo man the
ships already built, and the prospect of
getting a sufficient number does not seem
to be very promising Why this Is so
Is not clear. The pay Is fairly good and
there are chances for promotion It can
hardly be that the men are not treated
well. There Is no complaint, as far as
the public knows, of bad treatment, ye*,
there were nearly 2,nOU desertions during
the past year. There must be something
wrong or desertions would not be so
numerous and enlistments so few
It Is no doubt the purpose of the Am*r|.

There arc several cases pending In the

the question whether the territory ac
quired from Rpaln. as the result of the
Bpanlah-Amerlmti war. la to be governed
under or outside of the constitution, and
one of them Is to tie tried before that tri
bunal within a few days. What the decis

with any degree of certainty If It shall
be decided that this territory ran be gov
erned outside of the constitution the re
public will have colonies attached to It.
If It I* held that they roust be governed
under the constitution, then the question
will be whether the Philippine* shall be
prepared for statehood or for tndoiiend
It la well understood that there ta great
opposition to making the Philippines a
part of the I'nlted Slates. The Filipino*
ate not the sort of people wanted for
American cluxens. Beside*, there are
powerful interest* agatnet granting our
ntw possessions the privilege of (air mar
kets duty free.
It Is a question worth considering how
far the recent Republican victory will In
fluence the flupreme Court. Apparently
the American iicople huve decided In fa
vor of governing the Islands outside of
the constitution. It Is doubtful If th*
court will render a decision contrary to
that already rendered by the people. It
ran hardly help being profoundly Influenc
ed by the verdict of tjjc election. It would
seem, therefore, as If a decision holding
that th* bland* can lie governed outside
cf the constitution would be rendered.
If that should he the decision It will
no doubt strengthen the purpose of Phil
ippine insurgent* to resist as long as pos
sible They would far rather become a
part of the republic than to be governed
as colonies. They would be apt to be
