said last night: “Totpsdo division
has a large and enthusiastic member
ship, and at our last meeting, the sub
ject of going to Maoon was generally
discussed. While nothing dellnite was
decided upon, it is more than probable
that the trip will bemade. Correspond
ence is now being had with Mayor
Bridges Smith, ths live executive bead
of the Maoon oarnival, and we are
sore he will want the Naval militia
boys to come. Torpedo division will
carry a full rank, and as a feature of
tbe'parade, it is probable that a ten or
twelve-oared boat will be oarried, to
go in the parade as a (loaf. Tn this
