NAVAL PAY TABLE. Section 13 of the Navy Personnel bill, which became a law or. March 3, 1899, prom vided that "after June 30, 1809, commissioned officers of the line of the Navy and of the Medical and Pay Corps shall receive the same pay and allowances, except forage, as are or may be provided by or in pursuance of law or officers of corresponding rank in the Army: Provided, that such officers when on shore duty shall receive the allowances, but 15 per centum less pay than when on sea duty; but this provision shall not apply to warrant officers commissioned under Section 12 of this act. Provided further, that when naval officers are detailed for shore duty beyond seas they shall receive the same pay and allowances as are or may be provided by or in pursuance of law for officers of the Army detailed for duty in similar places. The pay of officers of the Army of and below the rank of colonel is increased 10 per cent for each five years of service in the grade, until the increase amounts to 40 per cent of the original pay, when no further increase may be made. The pay of a retired officer is 75 per cent of the highest pay of his grade on the active list.

The relativo rank between officers of the Navy (whether on the active or retired list) and officers of the Army is as follows: Admiral 'with general, rear admiral with major general and. brigadier general, captain with colonel, commander with lieutenant colonel, lieutenant commander with major, lieutenant with captain, lieutenant of junior grade with first lieutenant, ensign with second lieutenant.

The Naval Appropriation act, approved June 29, 1906, abolished the distinction between sea and shore pay, officers on shore duty formerly suffering a loss of 15 per cent in compensation. It also provided for retirements under certain circumstances,

TWO midshipmen are allowed for each SenatorRepresentative and Delegate in ConTess, two icr the District of Columbia, and five each year from the United State: at large. The appointments from the District of Columbia and five each year a large are made by the President. One midshipman is allowed from Porto Rico, who must be a native of that island. The appointment is made by the President, on ih Tecommendation of the Governor of Porto Rico.

The Congressional appointments are equitably distributed, so that in regular conrs each Senator. Representative and Delegate in Congress may appoint one midshipmar uuring each Congress. After June 30, 1913, each Senator, Representative and Delegati 10 Congress will be allowed to appoint only one midshipman instead of two,

The course for midshipmen is six years-.four years at the academy, when the succeeding appointment is made, and two years at sea, at the expiration of which line the examination for final graduation takes place. Midshipmen who pass the examination for final graduation are appointed to fill vacancies in the lower grade: of the line of the navy and of the Marine Corps, in the order of merit as determined by the Academic Board of the Naval Academy,

The Naval Appropriation act of June 29, 1906. prescribed this method of nomina: Tone: "The Secretary of the Navy shall, as soon as possible after the first day 0 June of each year preceding the graduation of midshipmen in the succeeding year houy in writing each Senator, Representative and Delegate in Congress of any vacancy that will exist at the Naval Academy because of such graduation, or tha may occur for other reasons and which he shall be entitled to fill by nomination of canddate and one or more alternates therefor. The nomination of a candidate an alternate or 'alternates to fill baid vacancy shall be made upon the recommendatio: " the Senator. Representative or Delegate, if such recommendation is made by the ourth day of March of the year following that in which said notice in writing 1 swen, but if it is not made by that time the Secretary of the Navy shall fill thi Vacancy by appointment of an actual resident of the state, Congress district

In cases where by reason of a vacancy in the membership of the Senate or House on! Representatives, or by the death or declination of a candidate for admission to the academy there occurs or is about to occur at the academy a vacancy from any state, Il district or territory that cannot be filled by nomination as herein provided, the samne may be filled as soon thereafter and before the final entrance examination for the year as the Secretary of the Navy nay determine. The candidates allowed for the District of Columbia and all the candidates appointed at large, together with alternates therefor, shall be selected by the President within the period herein presscribed for nomination of other candidates: Provided, that the President may select a candidate for the District of Columbia for the year 1908."

Candidates allowed for Congressional districts, for territories and for the District of Columbia must be actual residents of the districts or territories, respectively, from which they are nominated. All candidates must, at the time of their examination for admission, be between sixteen and twenty years old.

The Naval Appropriation act of March 4, 1903, provided that the Superintendent of the Naval Academy shall make such rules, to be approved by the Secretary of the Navy, as will effectually prevent the practice of hazıugi and any cadet found guilty of participating in or encouraging or countenancing such practice shall be summarily expelled from the academy, and shall not thereafter be reappointed to the corps of cadets or be eligible for appointment as a commissioned officer in the army or navy or marine corps until two years after the graduation of the class of which he was a member."
