AN INSUBORDINATE SEAMAN.—Robert Farrell, a seaman gunner on the torpedo destroyer Thrasher, pleaded guilty at Devonport, on Saturday, to striking Petty Officer West, and threatening Sub-Lieutenant Arbuth- not. The accused, who previously bore a good character, was sentenced to one year's imprisonment. TENDERS FOR SILK NECKERCHIEFS.—Being under the necessity of placing an order for 50,000 black silk neckerchiefs, for the use of the men of the Royal Navy, the Board of Admiralty have decided to give the contract to an English firm-or, at all events, to offer home manu- facturers the first opportunity of tendering for the supply. In accordance with this decision, the leading weavers in Macclesfield have been invited to submit quotations. It is understood that the conditions are so framed that the kerchiefs must be made of pure unadulterated silk, and that what is known as loaded' fabric will not be accepted. It seems to be an open secret in the trade that the operation of 'loading,' as originally practised on the Con- tinent, has been to a very great extent adopted in England, owing to the exigencies of com- petition.
