The Journal, February 11, page 434, stated that Capt. Charles M. Oman had been appointed surgeon general of the navy. The Senate has not thus far confirmed the appointment and the indications are that his nomination will not be confirmed at the present session of Congress, because the Senate is refusing to permit nominations of the outgoing administration to be acted on. Capt. John B. Dennis, assistant chief of the bureau of medicine and surgery, navy department, is acting in certain matters, while Secretary of the Navy Adams is performing official duties ordinarily performed by the surgeon general.
